Pond Point

of July Celebration.

Foster. "Found the grave yet?"
"Reckon I have." replDed the sexton.
"Ann Bassett says it's the grave of
Theron Bassttt."
After a century of somnolence the
town of Pond Point awoke to the re-
alization that its name was not writ-
ten large on the page of the nation's
history. Indeed, it did not appear at
"tll Other talns ind th 'l t:lir' In t he
state boasted of bullet scarred edifices,
historical taverns and many dwellings
wherein had slumbered the Immortal
Washington or the t loved Lafayette.
It had remained for Dr. Liscom to
unearth or at least to disclose the
identity of a real hero of the Revolu-
tionary war. In his genealogical re-
seat~hes the good doctor had come
across the mention of one Theron Bas-

and afterward died fighting on the
27th of August, 1776, in the battle of
.Long Island.
Notwithstanding the fact that The-
ron Bassett had appeared to be the
only patriotic soul among the hundreds
that had populated Pond Point in those
early days, with commendable ardor
Pond Point decided upon a celebration
upon the following Fourth of July.
This celebration was to come as a
thunderclap upon the neighboring
towns, which had openly jeered at
Pond Point in days gone by.
There was to be a grand parade and
speechmak-ing on the green where the
churches formed a triangle. There
was to "e n : oration at the grave de-
livered by the first selectman himself,
followed by the sounding of "taps"
over the resting place of the neglectted
hero. Then there was to be a piclic
in the grove, with free ice cream ,rnd
gorgeous fireworks in the evening.
Other towns and villages would come
and see and envy.
At last the honor of Pond Point was
to be vindhiated. Dr. Liscom had a
cousin who knew a man who was a
reporter on a New York paper. This
reporter was enjoying his arinupalt a-
cation. but he hud reluctantly con-
sented to appear. Had he known what
was in store for him he might have
accepted the assignment with more

tense heat later on.
"This is a proud day for Pond Point."
remarked Dr. Liscom as he prepared
to enter the carriage drawn up at the
"The greatest day ever." responded
the first selectman, puffing nervously
at his huge cigar. "We've been wait-
ing a long time. doctor, but today
we'll show some of those other fellows
what, Pond Point can do! They say
there's a big crowd from Leetown and
Scatterbrook up at the green now."
He panted into a seat beside the doc-
tor and fumbled at the roll of manu-
script in his pocket.
In the carriages were three clergy-
men of varying doctrines: the Euright
brothers, lawyers and men of stand-
ing in the community: a superanuated
senator who was a relative of the En.
rights and the orator of the day: the
committee on celebration, and. lastly.
the reporter from New York. who sat
dejectedly beside Hiram James of the
Pond Point Clarion. rather bored at
the whole proceeding.
Up the long street, around the cor-
ner by the postoffice and up the incline
to the village green, where the school-
house and three churches stood in
neighborly proximity. Here they paus-
ed and formed a semicircle about the
platform which had been erected.
Dr. Liscom arose and said:
"Ladies and (centlemen-This Is a

A rmrmur of indignation followed
the speaker as she pushed her way
through the crowd and finally emerg

She was a tall, rawboned woman
with strongly marked features and
iron gray hair drawn tightly back
from her forehead.

peace and dignity.
"Yes, you are misinformed," returned

Editor Buoy: A year ago you
chronicled our little Annie Brown's
marriage. Two months after she
was married, her husband was
drowned, and now, the 22d of July,
Annia died and was Cremated Au-
gust 1st at Newark, N. J. She was
taken sick July 6th, with typhoid
fever symptoms. We "feel very
great sympathy for the bereaved
parents in their old age, to be de-
prived of their only daughter, al-
ways such a staff of comfort to
them. Mr. Brown says, "Heaven
always opens to sueh pure sauls."'
L. B. 8.

Annie's early childhood was spent
here in St. Andrews, where she
grew almost to womanhood beloved
by everyone before she returned
with her parents to their far North-
ern home. And the Buoy sincere-
ly unites with its communicant in
sympathizing with the well-known
bereaved parents.

With a Grain of Salt.
The earliest record of the saying
"with a grain of salt" dates back to the
year 13 B. C.. when the great Pompey
entered the palace of Mithridates and
discovered among his private papers
the description of an antidote against
poisons of all sorts, which was com-
posed of pounded herbs. These, ac-
cording to the recipe, were to be taken
with a grain of salt. Whether this
was meant seriously or as a warning
sarcasm is not known, but thenceforth
it became the custom to say that
doubtful prepnrations should be taken
with a grain of salt. From this the
meaning got transferred to sayings of
dc(lhtful truth. "Attic salt" was a
Greek synonym for wit or penetration,
and the Latiu word "sal" had some-
what of the same meaning. It is thus
easy to see how the saying "cum
grano sa:ls" could bhae come to mean
the nec.esslty of accepting doubtful or
suspicious statements "with a grain of

Party's Fate on One Vote.
Instances are common enough in
elections when a single vote turns the
scale, but for that vote to decide not
only the fate of a candidate, but of a
party as well, is rare. Yet a majori-

Majorities only a little bigger have

Why is the Inrge bell in thle tower

It got its name. When the building
was designed Sir Bejamilu Hall had a
great deal to do with carr-yiug out the
plans of the architects, being high
colmmlssiouer of public works, and his

coworkers appreciated the fact that to
him the city of London was largely in-
debted. So when the question came
up in parliament as to the name of the
enormous bell that was to be hung in
the tower a member shouted, "Why
not call it Big Ben?" This suggestion
was received with much applause as
well as with roars of laughter, for Sir
Benjamin was an enormous man, both
in height and girth, and had often been
called Big Ben. From that day on

Startled Their Host.
A New Yorker decided to give a din-

go to a jeweler's and pick out some
little souvenirs for the women guests,
says the New York Sun. The host did
not know it. but a detective accompa-
nied the gifts to the house. Each wo
man found at her place at the table
a handsome box. When these were
opened there were cries of admiration.
Oue woman drew out a diamond ring,
another an emerald brooch, another a
diamond cre'ent, a fourth a necklace
of pearlt another a diamond tiara.
and so on, until the output of the
boxes represented about $0(.)00. The
host had forced a smile when the first
box was opened. As each trinket re-

A Belated


Trh Woman Who Saw the
World In Her Own


sOpvrulht 1O by Amlerica Pron
' ------ $-O** *A

The village of Enderley was looking
forward to an era of prosperity. When
a stripling in the postoffce called it
a boom Deacon Carder launched forth
Into a tirade against such a proposi-
"Butterworth'E giving' good wages,"
he said, "but you wait till he gits in
a passel of foreign hands.''4
"Easy, Carder, ?asyt They do say
he's buying land all along the river
road and going to put up these new-
fangled model tenements," pacified
the postmaster.
Passing down the street, the deacon
saw young Jack Butterworth rapping
at the door of the Dyer girls and ex-
"Either on 'em old enoughh to be
his grandmother, an' Analine bed-
ridden at that Humphi Prob'ly he's
up to his pa's tricks an' wanton' to
buy there an' start a hlfalutin sul-
phite mill. Stuff an' nonsense, I sayr"
Meantime the young man was vigor-
ously using the ancient knocker on the
door of the small white house, but, re-
ceiving no response, was about to turn
away when the sudden shrill blast of
a horn from within assured him that
the dwelling was not tenantless.
"I'm coming," called a high pitched
voice, and a wiry little old lady in
gingham gown and capping sunbonnet
appeared from the garden at the rear.
"Deary me! I was out getting butter
beans, and when I heard sister's horn
I was all of a fluster. But come right
In now, dot
"Sister, this Is Mr. Butterworth." In-
troduced Miss Caroline deprecatingly.
But the sister, an invalid, waved her
hand with impatience. "Don't mind
me. I ain't to home. Been in Japan
the whole afternoon. Just going to
ride out in one o' them Jinny gocarts
this minute. Bay," she continued Ir-
relevantly, with a birdlike change of
demeanor, "did you hear my horn?"
She proudly tapped an old cornet as
she spoke.
"Hear It, Miss Anallne! My ears are
ringing yet. Do you play often?" he
asked, with lingering amusement.
"86,ter doesn't really play," Miss
Carolis hastened to explain.
"No, but she cnn blow like old Bo-
rax," the Invalid rejnlned, with a
shrewd twinkle in her eyes.
"Ber sI. Borens. yor' mean, sister."
corrected the other gently.
"Well, I call him Borax." There was
the insistence of a spoiled child In the
-.MLcck woman's tone. "One toot means
--*'Bome one at the door.' Two toots
mean 'I want you myself.'"
Then she gravely observed, "The Jin-
ny gocart's waiting," and withdrew
her interest from the conversation.
"I'm afraid it's hopeless," he admit-
ted ruefully to his father afterward.
NI the Dyer place didn't happen to be
located exactly as It is-fairly adjoin-
ing the 'river road' property-of course
we'd never give It another thought.
And what would ever Induce thLt
quaint old pair to give up their home?
Those poor souls! By the way, father,
have you ever seen Miss Analine, the
bedridden one, who has a mania for
traveling and so pretends she's con-
stantly on the road?"
Mr. Butterworth drummed abstract-
edly on his office desk before answer-
'ing. "No, but I should think the
change would suit the old lady to a T
Trom all accounts.
"By Jove, father, do you know I be-
lih'e I have a scheme I'm deter-
mined to win yet, but I'll keep my
plan to myself for the present."
"Well, succeM to you, Jack," was
the hearty wish as the paternal gaze
rested admiringly on the animated
ftce. "I Judge the Dyer 'girls' are
likely to have a persistent caller."
Subsequent events proved the truth
of the prophecy, for the following aft-
ernoon saw the runabout again before
the old haKm. The front door was
sJar, and MJ Analtne called with un-
wonted gra':Cosaes: "Come Inl Come
In If you want tot Caroline's over to
Ms' BkiUla, but rm just getting back
from Venice *ael~. Pll be home Itn
a jifty. My," she exulted, "but it's
floe gono0llrg on the Grand canal!"
bSe breathed a sigh of rapture as she
looked up.
"Enderley, too, is an uncommonly
pretty place to any one who has an
eye for natural beauty," he finally
Miss Anallne's face clouded. "May-
be," she assented reluctantly.
"The town is improving fast," pur-
sued the undaunted youth, launching
lato a glowing account of recent
changes ,and bettered conditions.

"Down In the village, now, on Main
street, there's so much passing it'
onietines absohltety lively."
The black eyes In the withered coun-
tenance shone with speculative appre-
clation, and the speaker resumed: "I
should think you and Mus Caroline 1
would-aheml-take a notion one of
the.e days to move down in the midst
of things, where you'd have more
reIghbors. Haven't you ever thought

#'r phiee there"
Mr. Butterworth. Sr., would have de-
rp'tled germs of diplomatic talent in
the apparent Innocence with which the
suestlon was proffered, but the old
Lidy was wholly unsuspicious and re-
wlrted with a sniff of scorn: "What

quietly. But, Miss Anallne, some peo

pot burned in the faded cheeks, and
there was stern Interrogation in the

Best entreaty, and in reassuring tones
the plan was little by little unfolded
by which the Butterworth company
might gain possession of the coveted
land and yet the two old ladies be at
the same time enriched, while, best of
all, the belated traveler could at last
take a trip in very truth.
Therefore when Miss Caroline made
her tardy appearance she found her
sister sitting upright in excitement, so
engrossed in conversation with Jack
Butterworth that she was utterly ob-
livious to the fact that Snooks, the
gray kitten, was playing with the map
of Africa in a way which threatened
the immediate destruction of the dark

voice, "It's high time you got here

and maps in a neat pile on the stand
at the side of the bed. "Tomorrow.
sister," she proclaimed, "we'll begin
to make over my brown alpaca for a
travelingdress. I wonder if ruffles or
bias folds would look best for any one
going away."
But there was no reply, for the mind
of the other was busy with both pros-
pect and retrospect. "How can I give
up the dear old place?" she finally
asked, with a groan. "But such an
offer as he made! 'Twould seem like
flying in the face of Providence to
refuse. Land sakes, though, how up-
set I am!" she wailed.
"That's just it," retoyted the invalid
with asperity. "It's 'land sakes' and
nothing else. Haven't we still got the
house, and aren't we going to live in
a good lot down next to the Baptist
minister's when we get home from
our travels? Caroline Dyer, if you'd
been around the world as much as
some folks you'd likely have more
sense than you've ever got yet. I
should think you'd go now and get
supper with a glad heart llkA a Chris-
tian. I feel to eat a hefty meal my-
self." ht'us admonished, the mourn-
ful one was forced to bestir herself.
Succeeding morrows rolled into the
present and then the past until one
morning a smiling youth arrived with
the gay announcement: "The private
car is ready and horses are in sight
for tbe--baggnge, shall I say? 'All
aboard,' Miss Anallne?"
"Watt till my bounet and shawl's
on," commanded the bedridden trav-
eler. Then, noting an involuntary
smile, she grimly added, "When you're
making a real start for the first time
in a good many years, young man, I
think you'n want to go seemly and
Miss Anallne "received" at different
stages of her triumphal progress, and
the unusual excitement served as a
bracing tonic. "We stop down by the
Carder farm tonight," she announced
on the second day with the manner of
one about to behold untold glories.
but it was the following noon that a
discovery was made which thrilled
Miss Caroline with the awakening of
a hope long deferred.
She was getting dinner at what they
termed a "way station" when she re-
marked with a perturbed expression,
"I declare, Analine, I'm coming to be
as forgetful as old Grandma Skillins.
Why, I should have vowed I had a
big piece of berry pie in the butt'ry
for your dinner, but there ain't so
much as a bite."
She looked at the scanty repast with
regret, but great was her amazement
to hear her sister acknowledge with a
mixture of pride and contrition, "Come
to think of it, that must have been the
identical pie I ate last night."
Miss Caroline dropped into a chair.
"Analine Dyer," she gasped, "tell me
the truth! How'd you happen to get

that when 'twas in the buttry?"
There was no attempt at conceal-
nmet, but a characteristic explanation
was in readiness. "Don't get flustered,
Caroline. You act as floppy as if you
was car alek. You see, 'twas this way:
I got to sort of dwelling on the sub-
ject of China in the night, and from
thinking how pesky the famine was
t~ere I happened to feel a hankering
rbr something to nibble on myself, and
I found I could and did get to the
butt'ry. So there, that's all. Now,
there's no call to tace on," she finish-
ed, for Miss Caroline had thrown her
apron over her head and was rocking
back and forth, shedding tears of joy.
The room seemed suddenly filled
with contentment. A vista of peace-
ful days in which to continue their
brief journey together toward the set-
ting sun opened before the pair, and
two old hands were tightly clasped in
each other as a cheety voice outside
called "All aboard'

The biggest of fresh water fishes,
ihe "arapaima" of the Amazon, in

feet in length, has teeth on its tongue,
so that the latter resembles the file
and is 'used as such. 'Some kinds of
trout also have the same peculiarity.
Fishes that swallow their prey entire
have their teeth so supported on flexi-
ble bases as to bend backward, but

the biggest of the teeth belonging to

are one and a half inches long.
Speaking of extinct creatures reminds
us that all of the early birds-those
of early geological tines, that is-had
teeth, with which they captured the
early worms of the same period. Be-
ing descendant from reptiles, it is nat-
aral that they should possess a dental

Perpetual Motion.
Little Jimmy had arrived at the
questioning age. Re had Just made an
inquiry concerning perpetual motion
of his father.
"No," said his father; "nobody hai
ever discovered perpetual motlof yet."'
But Jimmy was not quite satisfied
"What is perpetual motion like, dad?"
he asked next.
His father thought a moment. "Why
It's pretty hard to say, Jimmy." he re
plied, "but It's something that keeps

Illustration. I once saw a woman in a
train who had put on her gloves. She
then tried to button her right band
glove, but she found that she must
take off her left hand glove to do so.
She took it off and buttoned the right
hand glove. Then she saw that in or-
der to button her left hand glove she
must take off her right hand glove,
which she did. Then she put on her
left hand glove, buttoned it and put
on the right hand one again. But she
couldn't button her right hand glove
with her left hand glove on, so she
took off- That, Jimmy," he said after

A Remarkable Dinner Service.
The remarkable dinner service made
by Josiah Wedgwood for the Russian
empress, Catherine II., in 1774 consists
of 952 pieces, and on each piece is
painted a different view. The body is
of a pale brimstone color, and the
views are painted in a rich mulberry
purple. As the service was intended
to be used at the palace of La Gre-
noullliere (meaning marshy place full
of frogs), each piece also bears a
green frog within a shield on the rim.
The views represent British ruined
castles, abbeys, parks, bridges, towers,
etc. Several pieces are decorated with
views of Hampstead, and there are
custard cups with views of Richmond
and sauce boats with the scenery of
Windsor park. In many cases the
views are the only pictorial records
left of the old buildings. Altogether
there are 1,282 views painted on the
052 pieces.-Connoisseur.

Confession :

ierlecan Press

The Bachelors' club came to order,
the president in the chair.
"Fellow bachelors," he said, "one of
our number has committed matri-
mony. Edward Hammertolhias tak-
en to himself a wife. I will read arti-
cle 7 from our constitution, applying
to his case:
"When any- member shall become en-
gaged or has been married he shall pay
a fine, and his membership in the club
shall cease. He shall state the arts by
which he was snared. If there are palli-
ating circumstances In his case he shall
not pay the whole fine, but such portion
of it as the club may consider a just
amount in his case.
"Mr. Hammerton will dow make his
"I assure you, gentlemen," said the
retiring member, "that no intention
whatever to desert you ever entered
my head until a diabolical combina-
tion of young women in the town
where I live forced matrimony upon
me. These persons organized a club
based on a custom prevailing in a for-
eign land. Between the mountains of
India and Persia, I have since under-
stood, is a powerful tribe, among
whom the ladies can choose their own
husbands. All a single woman has to
do when she wishes to change her
state is to send a servant to pin a
handkerchief to the hat of the man on
whom her fancy lights, and he is
obliged to marry her unless he can
show that he is too poor to purchase
her at the price her father requires.
"Inspired by this suggestion from a
land where secret venomous methods
underlie all social conditions, every
unmarried woman in the town where
I live formed a club-rather entered
upon a conspiracy-to force the bach-

elors into matrimony. One morning,
being about to leave my home, on tak-
ing my hat from the hall closet some-
thing soft and scented fluttered against
my hand.* I shuddered. I had touch-
ed the Indian poison flower and was
reminded of its waxen petals and its
seductive odor. Taking the hat to the
light, I saw pinned to it a blue silk
handkerchief in one corner of which
Swas embroidered my monogram in
white silk thread. Observe, gentle-
men, the insinuating method of this
designing creature. She not only knew
how dear to every man is his alma
Smarter, but she was aware that blue
SIs the color of my college.
"Mind you, gentlemen, I did not at
Sthe time know of this society or of its
malevolent purpose, for the members
kept both secret so long as possible. I
asked my butler how the handkerchief
came to be pinned to my hat. He
said that the servant of Miss Eugenia
Tomlinson, living at the other end of
the street, had called before I was
out of bed, asked for my hat and at-
tached the handkerchief. Why he had
done so he did not state.
"Going to my club after I had break-
fasted, I sat down to a cigar and a
paper. In the paper I read a full ac-
count of the organization and prac-
tices of this pestilent Indian plant that
had been imported to our soil. I also
read a list of the bachelor heads that
had already fallen and was aghast to
see the names of two of my most inti-
mate friends.
"'Great heavens,' I cried, the per-
spiration stating out on me, 'aud I
have already received a deadly Black
Hand notification!'
"The lady who had thus marked me
for matrimonial misery, both from her
beauty and general attractiveness, was
all powerful. Any man on whom she
pinned the skull and crossbones must
walk the plank. There was no hope
for him. Nevertheless, though seeing
the signal 'to heave to, I made up my
mind to pay no attention to it. I
simply sailed on minding my own
"Why didn't you take to an aero-
plane?" a member interrupted.
"Rats!" "Buncombe!" "Brave boyl"
and the like greeted the speaker.
"One week after the receipt of the
signal." he continued, "the period
given blacklisted bachelors by this
club, I met one of my most respected
woman friends on the street. She
cut me lead. The same day I met
several others and received the cut
direct from all. Here was, indeed,
a boycott You must remember,
gentlemen, that, although we do not
wish to surrender our Independence
to these creatures, to beostracized by
them is a serious matter. In time I
was cut by every unmarried woman in
town. Besides, the most attractive
married women were honorary mem-
bers of the club and joined the boy-
"And then, gentlemen, appeared the
most alluring feature of this malig-
nant scheme. Last of all my femi-
nine acquaintances I met the girl into
whose toils it was intended that I
should fall. A oaductive blush over-
spread her features, a bewildering
smile parted her vermilion lips and
showed two rows of pearls beneath;
then a modest dropping of the eyes.
These women who had united to as-
sist in snaring me were all denying
me the benefit of their society for the
purpose of driving me like an inno-
cent bird into the opening of the net
intended for me."
At this point in the speech there
were groans and cries of "Poor boy!'
"Innocent bird!" "Where's his moth-
err' "He's going to cry!" and the like.
"Here, fel-I was going to say fel-
low bachelors; alas, I can call you
such no longer!--I took that first step
which leads to the final inevitable fall.
I turned and joined her. Like the ine-
briate who sips the first glass of wine
that he knows will drag him down to
his ruin, I submitted myself to a pres-
ence which I knew would steal away
my brains. I umi.ht as well have
swallowed lat;, *\:.uI?."

Disagreeable at Home;
Lots of men and women who are
agreeable with others, get "cranky" at
home. Its not disposition, its the liver.
If you find in yourself that you feel
cross around the house, little things
worry you, just buy a bottle of Ballard's
Herbine and put your liver in shape.
You and everybody around you will
feel better for it. Price 50e. per bot-

"Run for a stomacn pumpr-
"Walk him!"
"Pour water down his throat!"
These and other such calls came
from the unsympathetic members of
the club. The benedict continued his
"My intention, gentlemen. in joining
her-so I persuaded myself; 'whom
the gods wish to destroy they first
make mad'-was to say something to
her to cause her to desist in her in-
tention to enslave me. I began in this
wise: 'If my circumstances were such
as to enable me to marry I should es-
teem myself honored beyond measure
in being invited by a lady in every
way so calculated to inspire my es-
teem. But my income, only $10.000 a
year, is barely enough for my own"-
Cries of "Dead give away!" "Selfish
brute!" "I'll bet she's going to cry!"
"Who said cry?" asked the confes-
sor, surprised.
"I did," replied the homeliest mem-
"That's exactly what she did."
"I knew it," said the homeliest
member. "A member of the club told
me in confidence that certain instruc-
tions are laid down for the irls. the
principal of which is to cry."
The confessor groaned and went on:
"We were walking toward the girl's
home and at this point reached her
door. She bnrst into a passion of
tears and ran into the house, shutting
the door behind her.
"I stood looking vaguely about me.
not knowing just what to do. I wish
ed a policeman would come along and
run me in. I had an undefined sense
of having committed a crime. It
seemed to me that I had pl!nI.''d a
dagger into the heart of the girl who
had left me. I went to rmy club. light-
ed a cigar, smoked it two minutes and
threw it away. I went Into the bil-
liard room, knocked the balls about
for two minutes more, threw dow ii
my cue and. shoving my bands In nmv
pockets, walked up iand du\on tu Ihe
hallway. Several of my friends came
in, but somehow I wanted to get rid
of them. They all wanted to know
what was the matter with me Oiwn
of them pestered me, telling me about
some liver pills he had used with
great effect.

"When one has committee a crime
he feels an irresistible desire to visit
the spot where it was enacted. The
spot where my crime had been perpe-
trated was a few steps from the home
of the girl who had inoculated me. 1
went there. I was possessed with a
desire to apologize for a sin I hadn't
committed. I rang the bell, weit into
the house and sent up my card."
"Gone up!" cried a voice.
"He'll never go there any more,"
said another.

His Treasurer Knew.
Ile who goes into puliti,_s Aust re-

said, for it is the habit of the sharp

Grubb in his life of that labor leader,
once made the slip of remuarkiug that
no man was worth more thai 500 a
year. Accordingly, when he became r
cabinet member with a salary of 2,-
000, he was obviously open to attack.
When he first met his constituents
at Battersea after he was made Ipresi-

candid friend recalled the statement
about a man's worth by calling out iii
the middle of his speech:

One of Dr. Hale's Jokes.
When he was q'tite a young man the
late Dr. Edward Everett Hale played a
practical joke on some girls who were
members of a party with whom he was
'summering on the Massachusetts coast.
All there girls were reading the sarn)
exciting novel, and one day at dinner
it was a leading topic. Knowing rl't

The Flying Dutchman.
The Flying Dutchman was a ship
which was sometimes visible from va-
rious points of land, but more part'--
ularly from the Cape of Good Hope
in very stormy weather. The story
runs that her captain once swore so
fearful an oath that as a punishment
for his blasphemy he was condemned
to beat about the oceans until the day
of judgment. The Flyina Dutchman
was never known to get into port and
was generally seen sailing under full
canvas before a strong wvi:d. 'The
myth is generally understood to have
had its origin in the wafers-qut, vilch

Very Fortunate.
One evening just after dinner a
young husband of Indianapolis was,
in accordance with his custom, giving
his better half the gist of the news
when suddenly he laid down the paper
with this exclamation:
"By George! Here's an account tell-
ing how during the recent storm off
the New England coast a ship loaded
with passengers weut ashore. 'Why,
that vesselIbelonged to my uncle Tom
In Portland!"
"How fortunate!" returned the young
wife. "And just think how glad those
passengers were to got to d:'" land!"-

Marble Polishing.
Marble polishing is simp!e and
quickly done. The cakes are carried
from the sawing room and piliccd on
