Association is called to meet in the

The first two days will be devot-
ed to business sessions, and papers
will be presented by some of the

will be at the San Carlos Hotol.
The Third Annual Convention
will be held at a critical period in
in the history of the association.
Within the year the United States'
engineers will, in all probability,
report to congress their recommend-
ations respecting an inland water-

report will furnish the basis for fu-

Every member should attend the
Third Annual Convention and do
everything in his power to strength-

the final struggle for congressional
endorsement of the project. We
have succeeded in getting an early
survey for the entire route from
the Mississippi river to the Atlan-
tic and two appropriations for con-
struction of parts of the project
have been made. We must follow
up this advantage by prompt ac-
tion in securing congressional ap-
proval of the entire project and ap-
propriations to begin the work un-

be furnished.
The main thing is now for every
member to make up his mind that
he will, if possible, attend, and
send word to that effect to the
secretary, for registration. Firms
are entitled to send two delegates,

A recent number of the Electrical
World contains an interesting arti-
cle on a gasoline electric truck used
for hauling ore fiom a lead and zinc
mine in Mexico to Marathon on the
Southern Pacific, 85 miles away.
For a number of years the ore was
blocked out, but there appeared no
means of transporting it to the rail-
road station, as the territory was
absolutely impassable for anything
but burros. A good road was built
and at first a gasoline tretk was
tried, but this proved a failure.
Then it was proposed to use an elec-
tric truck, but this idea was also
abandoned finally in favor of the
combined gasoline electrical system
of propulsion. The truck was a
4-cylinder gasoline engine direct-
connected to a 15 kilowatt eom-
pound-wound generator. The truck
on which the engine is mounted is
supported on four wheels, all of
which may be steered so as to per-
mit of rounding sharp turns on
mountain roads. The ore is car-
ried in a separate two-wheeled truck
of 15 tons capacity, which is sup-
ported at its forward end on the
power truck.
Melvin Vanniman has arrived

igible "America," which he Intends

After a few trial flights have been
made Walter Wellman and Vanni-

lantic trip. A flight from America
to Europe in a heavier-than-air ma-
chine also, is a possibility in the
not far distant future. The dis-
tance across near the Arctic Circle,
is only about 500 miles. Olieslagers

Bleriot monoplane at Rheims and

A Washington dispatch in the
Columbus, Ga., Ledger says: "To
Tige, a common-p'ace short-haired
fox terrier belonging to Jimmy Col-
lins, belongs the distinction of keep-
ing his master's entire family in
bread. rige kills rats for a living.
He kills them in a bakery near his
home. His master gets three loaves
of bread a day for the dog's serv-
*'Jimmy Collins is a drink com-
pounder at Shoemaker's, whose
thirst emporium, although guiltless
of a coat of paint for the last fifty
years, is the resort of newspaper
men, lawmakers and jurists.
"The daily massacre of rats is an
event in the neighborhood of the
bakery. By means of numerous
cage traps, between thirty and for-
ty of the rodents are captured ev-
ery twenty-four hours. At a stated
time each morning Jimmy, with
Tige at his heels and the faithful
few among the small urchins, ap-
pears at the big dough factory
ready for business.
"The rats are taken to a conven-
ient court and dropped from the
cage; one by one, at intervals of

about ten seconds. Tige has them
in his mouth almost before they hit
the ground and one shake usually
serves to break a back. Then he
is ready for the next one.
"Feeling that a saving of approx-
imately fiteen cents a day would
make the investment profitable, the
proprietor of the bakery has offered
Jimmy as high as $40 for Tige; but
Jimmy has heard the fable ot the
goose that laid the golden egg. As
far as he is concerned the goose
may live to a ripe old age-so long
as he gets his three loaves of bread
each day.

A Boatng Story In Which

Myste y. Y
There Is a Mystery.

Copyright, 1910. by American Press

We were sitting In a room above
where the boats were kept, nl easy
chairs, all university men, talking
about boating Incidents, oarsmen and
the paraphernalia for rowing. The air
was thick with tobacco smoke, princi-
pally from pipes, the students' favorite
smoke. We bad met to talk over prep-
arations for the coming season, which
was soon to begin. Having finished
that subject, we dropped, as I have
said, into general chat on aquatic siub-
jects and from this into stories of feats
that had been performed at contests
oe the water in days gone by. A col-
lege, being a constantly changing com-
munity, is not a good place for handing
down legends, but occasionally a grad-
uate will return to tell of some episode
tbna "ilupditel Iri- his day 'ud was at
the time the talk of the Institution.
We had with us on this occasion a
man who had dropped in unannounced,
remarking that he was a graduate of
the college of ten years' standing and
had in his day been a member of the
university crew. He must have been
graduated very young, for be looked
scarcely thirty. A cast or some Imper-
fection in his eye gave him an uncanny
look, and from the moment of his"ap-
pearance be was a damper on our spir-
"These old men," whispered Tom-
kins, a sophomore, to me, "who were
in college before the flood are a nui-
sance. They're always trying to feel
that they are in their teens again.
and they only succeed in making us
feel as old as they are.'
"Did you ever pull in a regatta?" 1
asked the alumnus.
"Yes," was the reply, "I pulled in
"Wbat year was that?" I inquired.
"It's not a pleasant subject to talk
about; we lost the race."
"To what did you attribute the fail-
ure?" asked one of our number. "There
is always a reason for every beating a
crew gets. One rime it is the stroke,
another the training, another the cock-
"I was the cnse of the failure on
that occasion." replied the stranger.
Never wer melancholy tone. There was not a
man in the party who did not take his
pipe out of his mouth, fix his eyes on
the speaker artd feel a cold chill pass
over him. The stranger continued:
"We had lben beaten b by our great
rival in two success sive seasons, aud
for this regatta had made every prepa-
ration. taken every precaution to soe-
cure a triumph. We had the best
coach the country afforded, a new boat
made on the most approved model, our
system of training was perfect and our
practice constant. The betting began
at 3 to 2 on our crew. and before the
race was on there were no takers at
2 to 1.

"The day of the race was beautiful;
not a cloud In the sky; just enough
breeze with plenty of ozone in it for
Invigoration. When the hour for the
race came the temperature was quite
hot enough to limler our joints and
"The scene along the river banks was
entrancing. The bright colors of the
girls' dresses and parasols made a per-
fect flower garden, while on the river
boats bearing both girls and boys were
shooting back and forth like water
"When we went out on the floating
platform to get into the boat there was
a mighty cheer from our backers that
I can hear to this day. Babcock was
No. 1. Ayer 2, Cameron 8, Bosworth 4,
Willrnnrth 5. Frost 6, Mayo 7."
"Singular." remarked one of us. "that
you should remember their names so
"I shall never forget them."
"You left out the stroke," I said.
"I was the stroke."
Whly t was that none of us could
muster pluck to ask the man his name
I don't know. We all wished to know
it, but not a man chirped.
"We stepped into the boat," contin-
ued the stranger, "stripped to the

waist. Eight good men with not n
pound of fat on any of us and In al
other respects In perfect condition.
had for months been absorbed in whai
had now come. For It my studies hbd
been neglected.' and I would have to
'bone' all summer to make up 'con(,i
tlons.' But I cared nothing for that
My whole nnl was merged InI the Ider
uf beating our opponents.
"We pulled into position, the shoi
was fired. and we made a good star
on the first trial, our boat half
length behind over the line. But we
made this up within a minute and
were soon half a length ahead. I
heard none of the wild cheers. I saw
neither the boat, the water nor the
shore dotted with waving handker
bchlef. 1 was conscious only of the
mighty effort I was making to get
the bout over the course. Once only
I saw drops of water towsed Into thb
tlr when the oar blade of one of our
oplonentu struck the surface instead
of sluking to its proper depth. 1
would not have been conscious of thll
had it not lben that such splashing
would retard the other boat.
"We gained steadily, turning the
stake boat--lt was that kind of a
course -two lenOth;s heada. As we
b<'gu1n to liUll bt-k down the course
feeling sure of winning. I was con
scious of the wild c.horing and wav-
Ing. It muy lb' that we all somewhnt
relaxed at this time. At any rate, our
opponents, having turned the stake
boat behind us, made a spurt and over-
hauled us. Then down again we got
to work and had gained three lengths
-quite enough considering there was
but a quarter of a mile remaining-to
give us the race. when"-
The narrator stoppltd. a pnllor came
over his face, and hU0 gastpd. Several
of us started toward him. but he waved
us back.
-"something in me gave way. I fell
over into the arms of No. 7. Our com-
petitors shot by us and won the race."
I have never experienced such a de-
pressing. not to say thrilling, sensation
as when the narrative ended. While
the narrator was describing the race
It seemed as If I could see the boats
dashing onward and bear the cheering.
When he spoke of the disaster some-
how my Imagination pictured blood
spouting from his mouth and nose.
Not a man among us but appeared to
be similarly shocked.
"Come," said one of our number,
"let's adjourn to the and get some
"Agreedi" cried the rest, glad to
break the spell and eager for some-
Sthfig to brace us after listening to the
wnird n-tratrve.(
We went out Into the darkness7ibe

were substitutes gshlore. but the mani
who hald drclppltl out was one of the'
two most inip'mrtant men of the crew.
To put anty oute In his place would be
to surely lose the ra'e.
A few minliute before thei crews
went out to the wa::er I askel about
the tb rtiltue Ind wna told that a
freshman was to row. I could not
learn how or why ht had been chosen.
but, wishing to Ilve a look at him, 1
went down inu to tth float. The men
were getting Into thte bout. T'he sub-

stitute's face was familiar to me. but
I could not tell where I lhid seen himn
Then udden;ly It rushed upmn mie that
be was the man we had called Mr.
Had a freshman been smart enough
to sell us all out as a graduate of tei:
years" standing with a marvelous story
of which he was the central figure?'
I took a position where I could see
the race all the way and had with me
a powerful fieldglass. Our crew- took
the lead almost Immediately after the
start. I noticed when the crew got into
the boat the substitute took tlie I)lace
of No. t All throw'gh the race I could
see that. while he did not appear to be
;akingI a ihervuleim effort, he was do-
ing splendid work. Our crew kept the
lead they had taken, gradually but
slowly .lrawhlng away from their conm-
petitors. From a length it grew to two
lengths, then three lengths, nod at the
finish the race was won by five and a
half lengths.
Never had we been beaten by such
odds. I questioned the crew as to how
it happened, for our adversaries had
made better time than ever before, anut
was told that it was all on account of
the substitute. Every time he put his
,ar t1 the water the boat seemed to
move forward whether the rest of the

a crew exerted themselves or nor.
I became interested in the freshman
substitute. Determined to find out
more about him, I made inquiries. But
It was at the close of the term, with
the summer vacation ahead, and I dis-
covered nothing. Returning in the au-
tumn, I looked for him among the
sophomores. He was not to be found.
Some said he had not returned to col-
Slege. The singular feature of the case
t was that I couldn't learn his name. I
went to the man who was responsible
for his acceptance on the crew and
found hil disposed to bush the matter
up. He admitted to me that the pro-
'eeding had been irregular, that the
substitute had come to him at the elst
minute, begged hard to be accepted
and jpromnlled to win the race it allow-
ed to pull. My informant said that he
had acted hastily. taking the man's
own representation that he was In col-
lege. Of course where there are sev-
1ral thousand undergraduates one Is
not expected to know them all.
It now occurred to me to examine
'he college record of the man we had
dubbed Mr. Stroke. I went to the reg-
ister and made Inquiries about the race
in whlch be had figured. The records
mentioned the names of the crew he
had given, his own being Champlln.
"Tbhat race." said my Informant.

Extravagant Mourning.
Pepys dhiir3 DnI, til.- on lhe mourn
Ing customs or th('e tie: On Sept. 22,
J.It,0. when there was mourning for
King lhurles' brother, the Duke of
(Iloucrester, he "bought a pair of short
black stockings to wear over a pair of
silk ones for mourning." Next day

"came one from my father's with a
black cloth cont, made of my short
cloak, to walk up and down In." The
problem of mourning for men must
have been greater than it Is now In
those days, when ordinary masculine
costume was less somber. On this oc-
casion Pepys records seeing "the king
in purple mourning for his brother."
There is one mourning extravagance
of the early eighteenth century which
would scarcely commend Itself-the
soles of the shoes used to be blacked.

.-.August 24, 1910. On this day the
publisher of this paper reaches the 78th
anniversary of his birth. To deny that
his advancing years are telling upon
his physical ability would be foolish-
ness on his part; but he still alone,
with the exception of with the assist-
ance of his good wife, who is making
headway as a typesetter, and several
local friends who contribute in a rc-
portorial capacity ic preparing each
week an edition of ti Buoy. Fe
forcibly realizes that 'it Is borrowed
4ime upon which he ts existing, and
hopes that his patrons and friends will
bear with his shortcomings and that he
may continue to enjoy their good opin-
ions until he can turn the Buoy ever to
some one better prepared financially,
ihyavcaly uad it.ialligetl to preOsfl
over its destinies.
-It has transpired that during the
present week two well-known St. An-
drews people were guilty of reAching
an anniversary oi their birth within a
few days of each other, each number-
ing as their acquairaoes many mutual
friends, and what did they do but ge'
together and put up a job upon the two
victims and extend to each an invita-
tion to attend a little birthday greet-
ing for the other that had been arrang-
at the home of Mr, and Mrs. J. M.
Wills, for last Monday nigl t. The two
people selected for this honor were, W
A. Emmons, the modest publisher of
the Buoy, who 'on the 2t4h day of Aa-
gust reached the 78tn anniversary ol
his advent into this breathing world:
the other beirif Mrs, H. C. Muuson
who, reached her 53d anniversary on
the 22d iost, All unsuspecting, the two
responded to the invitation, expecting
to congratulate the other on the occa-
suin, and upon arriving at the r.lnd-z-
tous, found a soree of their several
friends assembled ready to extend
hearty congratulations to both of the
selected guests. Never were surprises
more complete and never were con-
gratulations more thoroughly appreci-
ated. Soon Mr. Wills put his grapho-
phone in order tor a two hour concert
and for that length of time entertained
the assembage with the reproduction ol
forty)r"-fifty new and popular records.
at the close of which the leaders in tht
conspiracy brought forth baskets and
bundles bulging with toothsome and
delicate refreshments and spread ta-
bles at which, as guests of 'honor, the
two for wr.om the feast had been plann-
ed were seated. These surprise parties
have been quite frequent in St. An-
drews during the past year; but it is
safe to say that no one of them took the
honored guests more completely by
surprise andunone felt themselves more
happily honored thsn they. Surely the
good deeds of these promoters will live
after them.

ing that the question was open as
to how the seine mesh must be

zie handed to Solicitor Carmichael,
who at once boarded the train for
Chipley for the purpose of consuit-
ing his law books and after doing
so, he wrote back that an amend-
ment to the original law left the
question open as to how the mesh
must be measured and that in his
opinion, if the fishermen observed
the spirit of the law they could
probably fish the season out with
their present equipment. It is
probable that the defect in the law
wil be conocted at the next ses-
sion of the legislature.

obey its provisions.
This plan ought to satisfy the
fishermen, for it will give them am-
ple time to prepare their next sea-
son's equipment according to law.
There is no doubt but that they
are injuring themselves by fishing
with the meshes now in use. Such
a large proportion of small fish are
caught that they ruin the market,
and besides, they are "killing the
goose that lays the golden egg," for
at the present rate of slaughter It
will not be long until there will be
no fish to catch.

er, Mrs. S. I. Maxon, at Walworth,
Wis.. the tidings of the death of
that lady's father, Mr. Nathan J.
Read, at the advanced ,ge of nine-
ty cight years, eight months and
one day. Mrs. M. has for the past
five or six years been a constant
attendant upon her father in his
declining years. Hd had visited his
daughter, here four different occa-
sions and enjoyed the respectful re-
membrance of all those who on
these occasions made his aquaint-
ance. Mr. Read was three t mes
married, Mrs. Maxon being of the
first parentage. Two other children
were born of this marriage, and one
of his second marriage. Mr. Read's
upright life and intelligent mode of
living doubtless contributed to his
long life.
Mrs Maxon will now return to

Cause of Twilight.
Twilight Is a phtonomenon caused bSy
atmospheric refraction. When the S UD
gets below ti thrizon we are not im-
mediately plunged into the darkness of
night. Although the sun Is below our
horizon. rays of solar light are bent or
refracted by the terrestrial atmosphere
and continue to furnish some slight
Illumination. The process continues
with diminishing intensity utll the
sun Is so far below the horizon that
the refrrcting power of the atmos-
phere is no longer able to bend the
rays enough to produce a visible ef-
fect. The tiule after sunset that the
sun reaches such a position varies with
the latitude of the place. There is less
twillght at the tropic zone than at the
temperate or frigid zone. This is due
to less time taken by the sun's rays to
pass through the atmosphere, at the
tropic zone the sun's rays being per-
pendicular and at the temperate and
frigid zones obllque.-New York Amer-

Who Shot

The Arrow?i

*tt, *****. ***9*9 +41*4H **
Humphrey Miller was lying on the
grass one July afternoon in the center
of the square about which clustered
the village of Atherton. Humphrey
was a typical case of a boy born to
the plow who yearned for something
better, at least more Intellectual. He
wished to go to college and study a
profession. He was ready to work his
way while studying, but just as be
wan about to matriculate his father
4eWl. the farm was sold out under a
mortgage, and the boy's mother and
slater were thrown upon him for sup-
port. To bear this burden and his own
as a student appeared to him a matter
st beer impossibility. He must forego
hl. projects, accept a situation offered'
m n a country store and go to work.
He was about to arise and walk to a
corner of the square where the store in
question was located to announce that
he would begin his duties the next
morning when be heard a whizzing
sound and saw a short distance from
him an arrow standing with its point
Imbedded In the ground. To the feath-
ered end hung a bit of paper, which,
now that the arrow was at rest floated
Idly In the wind. Humphrey arose,
went to the arrow, broke the string
that held the paper and found the fol-
lowing words written in pencil:
Oo to college. Your mother and sister
will be provided for.
Humphrey swept with his eye the
square and the houses that lined it
The former was empty; the latter
bsowed no sign of the person who had
shot the arrow. They were mostly
dwellings, and Humphrey knew nearly
all of the people who lived in -them.
He began at once to con over those
among whom the mysterious archer
might be found. There was Peter
Owens, a friend of his father, who was
well to do. but Mr. Owens was not a
man to.hide a charity under a bushel.
There was Harvey Dixon, his mother'b
cousin, but Dixon had all he could do
to provide for his own family. There
was his Intimate friend, Bob Glark,
who had been left a legacy by his
grapdmother. Humphrey knew that
Bob when he was younger had been
stood of archery. Besides, Bob's sister
Ludna had shown by her actions that
hbe admired Humphrey. Had not Lu-
eina something to do with the matter?
Humphrey thought all the rest of the
f lay. about the proposed benefaction
Oaid in the evening went to see Rose
*iyman, a girl in whose judgment he
had great confidence, Intending to ask
her to find out for him who had shot
the arrow. Rose did not live on the
square and. having no means, could
mot possibly have had anything to do
with the message. He told her of the
circumstance and that he could not ac-
cept the favor without knowing the
donor and agreeing to repay in time
the amount expended upon him. Would
she help him?
Rose always took time to consider
before reaching her decisions. Finally
she said:
"If the person who shot the arrow
wished to be known he or she would
not have taken that means of commu-
licating. To endeavor to discover the
donor would be ungrateful in you. My
advice to you is to accept the gift as It
la offered."
"You've got a lot of horse sense in
that head of yours. Rose." was the re-
ply. "I'll take your advice."
Humphrey left her, wondering how
a girl no older than himself could have
go much foresight. Relying upon her
judgment, he acted on her advice.
went to college that autumn, rang the
college bell for his tuition, did all sorts
eo odd Jobs and In his third and fourth
year taught school. Besides this, he
read the first books used by students
at law.
The promise of his unknown friend
to provide for his mother and sister
was kept, but the amounts provided
were small and at times Irregularly
paid. Humphrey. remembering Rose's
words that It would be ungrateful for
him to endeavor to discover who was
the donor, told his mother not to look

lato any checks she might receive and
S any came that revealed the secret
not to tell him. The remittances were
all made by check, signed by the cash-
er of the Atherton bank. But, obeying
her son's instructions, Mrs. Miller nev-
er tuquired at the bank from whom the
o"eney came, though it was not proba-
ble if sbh had done so she would have
ecelved any satisfaction.
But the oee clew Humphrey pos-
essed an to the identity of the un-
tanowa desi--tbe fact that Bob Clark
had been fond of archery when a boy
-took possesstow of the student's mind
and kept Its place there all through his
college course. Attached to the clew
was a feeling which kept him in a
state of constant perplexity. What if
Iucina Clark had persuaded her father
lo advance the means sent his mother?
That luvirett had shown a predisposi-
tion for him was evident. At the end
ef his studies it was to be expected
that the secret would come out. If Lu-
etna had been instrumental is the mat-
t$r it would be Incumbent upon him to
betow upon her any return she might
desire. Suppose she should wish the
offer of bfmself!
ueinra was an attractive girl, and
oseb a result did not appear especial-
ly distasteful to him. Indeed, the as-
eneitltlon of her with this (to him,
great beaethetion was gradually'draw-
1ig him toward her during the whole
0t his eelege course. Each year he
was growing older and at the time of

to stop the payments of his unknown
friend. He therefore directed Ills nmoth
er to return the first payment made
after he began his duties and ask the
cashier of the bank from which it (camile
if he might not now know to whom II
had been Indebted. The cashier after
taking time for consultation with his
principal returned and answered that
whenever he felt abundantly able to
repay the amount the donor's name
would be given him. Until then there
could be nothing gained by furnishlug
the desired information.
Humphrey was much disappointed
He thought of charging Bob Clark
with being a party to the matter of his
benefactionst but, thinking that If hlii
sister were' involved without hls
knowledge it might raise a delicate
complication, he desisted. Since the
only clew he had was In connection
with the Clark family there was no
one else for him te consider. In his
perplexity he remembered that he Itait
been guided by Iose Wyminau's Judg
ment thus far and it would ikarhaips
be better to take counsel with her he-
fore going any further.
Rose confirmed his idea that if Lu
cina Clark had had anything to do
with the matter, should he speak (to
Bob, complications might arise. In-
deed, Iose was of the opinion that If
any woman had been the donor the sit-
uation might become very embarrass
Ing. She advised Humphrey tiot to let
the benefaction Influence him In the
matter of love. If he loved Luciun he
should tell her so. shutting his eyes to
the fact that she might liave secured
for him the assistance which had enl-
bled him to obtain a college education
If he did not love her for herself with
out this (hypothetical) favor be should
not propose to her on account of It.
Humphrey left his friend. ba, vi
gained a new item of knowledge. He
had spent four years at college and
come home to learn that a girl with a
common school education had more
sense than he had. He felt like saying
with the poet. "Knowledge comes, but
wisdom lingers."
,He made up his mind not to act in
the matter without Rose's sanction.
But he seriously considered offering
himself to Luclna Clark. He believed
that there were nine chances In ten
that she was at least indirectly con-
cerned in the matter, and if she were
the whole would make a very pretty
romance. But, not being sure of his
love for her, he concluded to wait. It
struck him, moreover, that he would
not like to confess to the practical
Rose that lie was Influenced by this
supposed "'pretty rouiance." He had
come to dread Rose's unromantic way
of looking at things. He thought that
If she had only had a little of the ideal
in her nature he might have consid-
ered her'a sweetheart instead of a
But Humphrey could not make up
his mind that he loved Lucuia Clark
exclusive of the gratitude he felt for
her supposed favor. One day be went
to Rose and told her this. He also
told her that he had borne the un-
certailty attached to the secret long
enough and it was time he was re-
lieved of it. He also desired to com-
mence to make small payments return-
ing the amount he had received. To
do this he must have the name of the
donor and he had been told that it
would at such time be proper for him
to make inquiries to that end.
Rose considered awhile replying, then
advised him that if such was his in-
tention he might with propriety ask
the cashier if he would reveal the se-
cret. Hlumphrey was so delighted that
he was about togo to the bank at once
when Rose stopped him.
"You have plenty of time," she said.
"I make it the rule of my life to sleep
over important decisions whenever it
is possible. Go tomorrow."
"Just like you, Rose," he exclaimed--
"no Impulse. no romance! But you
make up the deficiency in mighty good
Humphrey went to the bank next

morning and asked for the name of
his benefactor. He expected that the
cashier would ask for time in which
to get the consent of his principal. Int
this Humphrey was mistaken. He had
already been authorized.
"Rosalie WyIman.ii" was the reply.
Humphrey gpped at the mn i for i

out of the lhniik and did not stop til'

The Persistency of Colds.
Why is it that we are so heavily
subject to colds? Other epidemic dis-
eases-measles, typhoid. scarlet fever.
diphtheria-may get hold on us once
and there is an end; it is not usual to
have any of them twice. We brew in
our blood immunity. The poison of the
disease evokes in us its proper anti-
dote. Our blood cells make a sort of
natural antitoxin and keep It in stock,
so that we are henceforth protected
against the disease. A well vaccinated
nurse, for example, works with safety
in a smallpox hospital, where the very
air is infective, but her blood is so
changed by vaccination that the small-
pox cannot affect her. By scarlet fe-
ver, again, we are, as it were, vacci-
nated against scarlet fever. The reac-
tion of our blood against the disease
immunizes us. No such result follows
influenza or a common cold. We brew
nothing that is permanent We are
just as susceptible to a later Invasion
as we were to the Invasion that is just
over.-London Spectator.

A Victim of Leprosy.
"On my travels In Venezuela," said a
New York man. "I stayed In a hotel
with a young man In whose family
there was the taint of leprosy, though
ae apparently did not have it One
night sitting at dinner he became nn-
gry at a waiter and hrou-"ht his hand
down on the table with full force. He
Instantly realized that he did not feel
the blow nnd sat looking at his hand.

me your knife. Bob,' be said to his
chum He grabbed the jpocktknlte In
a frenzy and stabbed the side of his
hand with vicious cuts from linger tip
to wrist. You may not know that lep-
rosy appears in the side of the hand.
numbness being a sign. The man did
not feel the cuts. 1II arose from the
table, knocking over his chair, rushed
out into the courtyard of the hotel, and
we heard the quick tang of a revolver
shot, telling us how be bad conquered
the leper's curse by ending his life."-

He Could Wield an Ax.
The skill of the old Maine shipbuild-
ers in the use of the adz and broadax
was wonderful. One old time yarn Is
of a carpenter who applied very drunk
at a shipyard for employment In or-
der to have a little fun with him the
foreman set him to give a proof of his
skill by hewing out a wooden bolt with
no chopping block but a stone. The
carpenter accomplished his difficult
task without marring the keen edge of
the broadax and showed the foreman
a neatly made bolt Then he brought
the ax down with a terrific blow that.
shattered its edge upon the stone. "1
can hew fust rate on your chopping
block," he hiccoughed, "but I'll be
blamed if I can make the ax stick in
it when I git througlf" The story runs
that the foreman lost no time in em-
ploying such a workman.

The Ingenious Magpie.
The magpie is nothing if not Ingen-
loua. He always barricades his bulky
nest with thorn branches, so that to
plunder it is by no means an easy mat-
ter, but when circumstances oblige the
"pie" to build in a low bush or hedge,
an absence of lofty trees being a
marked feature of some-northern lo-
calities, he. not only interlaces his
home, but also the entire bush. In a
most formidable manner. Nor does he
stop here. To "make assurance dou-
ble sure" he fashions a means of exit
as well as an entrance to the castle, so
.that if disturbed he can slip out by
his back door, as it were.--London
His Athletio Neighbor.
A young man inmate of a boarding
house had been disturbed night after
night by the boarder In the next room
doing things with a punching bag he'd
rigged up in the room some way. At
breakfast each morning the young man
would look over the crowd and won-
der who the bag puncher might be,
but there was no one in sight but a
bunch of women and eight or ten men
with narrow chests and retreating
chins. One night he made up his mind
to knock on the bag punching room-
er's door and ask him to put over his
exercise until daylight when all the
world's awake. The man might be
small enough to bulldoze even with all
his athletics. The door opened and

A Judiolal Favor.
A verdant local reporter whose pmo-
pensities Incline to daring rather than
to judgment and whose ardency in the
quest of news is one of his marked
characteristics approached a judge of
the United States district court and so-
licited a little advance information on
a case in progress in the judge's court.
"You see, judge," said the youngster
to the astonished jurist, "we go to
press in a few moments, and we all
know your inclination to do a news-
paper man a favor."
The venerable man eyed the youth
sternly and said slowly and emphat-
"Yes, young man, rll do you a fa-
vor this time, and you will see that
you don't ask me again."
"That's fine, your honor. Thanks.
very much. Just a few lines will do,"
"I will do you this favor. I shall not
send you to fall this time, but if you
ever approach me again with such a
question your friends will not see you
for some time."
The discomfited reporter retired ru-
minating on the mysteries of the law
and the dignities pertaining to the ju-
diciary.-Phllndelpba Ledger.

The Exotusiveness of Caste.
An English officer who some years
ago was wouiidid Int a battle In India
and left lying all ulght among the na-
tive dead and wounded tells this story:
"Next morning we spied a man and an
old woman, who came to us with a
basket and a pot of water, and to
every wounded alan she gave a piece
of Joaree bread from the basket and a
drink from her water pot To is she
gave the same. und i thanked heaven
and ber. But the toobanhdur was a
high caste Rajput. and. as this womr-
an was a Chumlinr. or of tie lowest
caste. be would receive neither water
nor bread from her 1 t 'i-t to l'r-
suede him to take it that be might

but a few hours lmltore to linger, whilt

for such an object No; he preferred
to die unpolluted."

The Ham Fair at Paris.
A feature of Parisian life is the ham
fair which is held on the Boulevard
Richard Le Notr. The name of this
fair is wholly misleading, for as far
as I have ever seen hams are the very
last thing any one ever buys there.
Old brass and copper curios, quaint
jewelry, rare china, lace, tapestries
and books are what most people go
out to seek, and a sight not to be torslly
forgotten is the long, wid e outlevrd
ined with ramshackle stalls laden
with every possible kind of lumber and
presided over by the most rapacious
of brocanteurs. Out of piles of value-
less lumber Americans and English
diligently seek for their pet kind of
curios, and there is not an artist in
Paris who cannot point to some bit
of furniture in his or her studio and
say with pride, "I got that for 6 frann.-
at the ham fair." No one ever pays
more than 5 francs, I notice, but, alan,
every year these five franc lbrgains
are becoming more rare, and even am
housekeeping in Parls grows more and
more costly so does the furnishing of
one's house to keep.-loondon Queen.

Only a Question of Possibility.
Among the ( customers of a tea store
opened in the northwest part of the
city the other night was a man who,
after buying a pound of coffee, handed
a counterfeit half dollar to the shop-
"This money Is counterfeit; I'm sor.
ry, sir," said the shopkeeper.
"Yes; I know it," replied the cus-
tomer, grinning. "Got It here one day
last week. and I've been saving it for
you." Then, noting the smile upon
the shopkeeper's face, the customer
said, evidently offended. "Perhaps yon
doubt my word?"
"Ob. not at all, sir; not at all. 1
couldn't doubt the word of so truthfuli
a man I was simply smiling because
I wondered how it was.possible for
you to have got the money here. This
place was opened only night before
Thereupon the customer departed
hastily after prodctring a good coin
and slipping the cou-r g it Into hte
own pocket.- Philadelphia Times.

Japan's Giant Wrostlers.
Japanese wrestlers are not to be con-
fused with Japanese expolnenitH of jit
jitsu. The wrestlers belong to the
older school. in which weight is a par-
amount quality. It is a remarkable
thing that a race wlichh is on the av-
erage four or five ntches under the Eu-
ropean standard in point of height
should have produced a special cult of
wrestlers who are giants in stature
and strength. The leading wrestlers
of. Tokyo or Osaka or Hiogo are all
men at least six feet in height and
weighing perhaps 8X00 pounds 'hey'
are a race apart. Wrestling In aun n-
cupation which has been handed ,own
from father to son for manny genera-

prowess is that they have alwIays be t

Imitation stone is practically extin-
