"1 supposese" says the city friend to
the visitor from the hills of Ken-
tucky, "that It Is a good deal dif-
ferent here than it is where you live."
"Yes, Indeed, suh." courteously re-
spoinds the visitor.
"The clanging of the gongs, the
rattle of the wheels, the thousand and
one noises of the street, with tne at-
tendant necessity of stepping lively
to avoid an accident must mako the
city seem a very strenuous place to
one from as quiet a spot as you-"
"Uless you. sub!" Interrupts the
gentleman from Kentucky. "I'm get.

S tht a boy has been comlained of
Sthe hed by his form master, the

thM the Master is dissatefled either
wihk the boy's work or general bt-
havlor.
Other backslidlngs are smoking
sad eattngs chapel, the former being
a pirtUeuirly hefaoua crime. Boys
below thb fifth form are attended to
by the lower master, oephemistichl-
ly known as "the flea." who has
more or less complete authority over
Me rower ehool; the "uppers," or
eniors, are looked after by the
headmaster In person. In either
case the proceedings do not differ
materially.
On the day of execution a praepos-
tor comes around to the victim's
classroom and asks if "So-and-So Is
In this division?" On the master In
charge answering "Yes" the praepos-
tor calls out, "Headmaster wishes to
see him after 12."
There is an ominous pause as
these dread words are uttered. The
master in charge smiles grimly, the
victim looks sheepish and turns
white the other boys exchange sig-
niflcant glances.
Twelve o'clock booms out all too
soon. As the class clatters out down
the stairs the victim's friends clus-
ter. round hka and overwhelm him'
with hints and tit-bits of informa-
tion. "Does be know the head's al-
ways In a worse 'bait' on Mondays?"
"Did he see that new lot of birches
thrat went up only the other day?"
anA so on. It Is a horrid, heartless
world.
Arrived at the execution chambeIr,
he is confronted with the two prat-
posters whose duty It Is to "hd1
down," an office which is generally
rather a sinecure, though occasion-
ally boys have been known to strug-
gle furiously. The headmaster now
appears, and in solemn accents say%,
*"Kneel there, boy," Indicating the
block as he speaks.
Over the dext few seconds one
may draw a veil-enough to say t~at
in the majority of cases three or
four strokes are held to be sufficient.

met here and formed an sasoclation
for the purpose of arranging to mar-
ket the crop of avocados. Thus far
the growers of this fruit have had no
uniformity of package, and the ex-

was Sound necessary for the growers
to organlse.
It was decided to call the associa-
tion the Mast Coast Avocado asmocia-

Wet for meverl mouths each winter
by the Onted States coast survey.
before the party began work here
rpgetleslly nothing was known as to
the formation of the bottom of tbh
harbor, except by the pilots and they
knew only the main channels. Under
the old system of sounding with a
leid and line it was absolutely impon-
sile to locate the pin head shoals
which Are scattered about over the-
harbor.
The new chart recently Issued gives
a good Idea of the thoroughness of
the work done by this party. Hun-
dreds of shoals heretofore uncharted
are now properly located and the
channels are shown with accurate
depths.
The true value of such a chart can
only be appreciated by the wasterts
of deep draft vessels. The land-lub-
ber would presume that the charting
of &,o many shoals would impair the
value of the harbor, but It does not.
If the mariner Is satisfied that the
chart Is correct he can very easily
steer clear of charted shoals.

Important Bills Passed by the
Florida House of Representatives
Tallahassee, Fla.-A bank guaranty
bill, differing but little from the Okla-
homa law, was passed ,by the house

depositor's guaranty fund.
A bill providing for a state plant
to do all the state printing was de-
feated.
The house also voted against re

ty uniformity of school text books.
The bill was recently defeated in
the house.
The Western Union Telograph Com-
pany's files of Tallahassee office are
to be Investigated by a special com-
mittee of the house of representatives.

Proven by our success and our reputation.


Many seem to think that after the
crop is set, the trees are going to ma-
ture it some way and anything they
can save on fertilizer is clear gain.
but actual results prove that a sum-
mer fertilizing costa less than noth-
Ing. By making each fruit a little
larger many boxes are added to the
crop and the fruit brings a higher
price. Then, a luxuriant growth of
*bearing wood is a neceftsary founda-
tion for a large crop neSj year. and
still further gain is seen in the con-
dition of the tree%. If their vitality
has been kept up they are better pre-
pared for winter and for strong .pring
action than trees that have become
thoroughly exhausted and have to be
nursed up 'before they can respond to
thi call of spring.

The anarchist body ih London con-
sists chiefly of foreign artisans, em-
ployed for the most part as cabinet-
makers, tailors, ele<(triclans. shoe-
makers and waiters. These men as
a rule are in receipt of good wages
S sand contribute freely to the cause
7Ieir clubs meet In Soho. liammer'
smith, Tottenhan,m in the INst End of
London and some other phrccs.
Their numbers In London may b.-
estimated at from 700oo to 1,000, but it
is, of course. difficult to calculate th,,
numbers of an organization which is
of such a nebulous and shifting char-
acter. Nor is it suiggeited that among
this number can be found many to un-
dertake the active and dangerous task
of committing outrage; on society.
Nevertheless, at appropriate times the
money and cnen are always forthcom-
ing, in anarohist Ircles. As to 1he
money, it must not hi, forgotten that
the proceeds of buirglarles and hign-
way robberies have always been wel-
comed as supplies for the anarchipt
way chest. This doctrine has been
frequently declared, and a notorious
discipline of this school was the anar-
chist burglaurPena. who successfully
committed a long series of burglaries
in Paris in the early '90s before be-
ing arrested and sentenced to a long
term of imprisonment.
It was known to the whole anar-
chist body in Paris that Pena com-
mitted these burglaries, but the fact
that contributed freely from thp.
proceeds of bhi crimes to the funds
of the movement e(tusd his secret
to be kept, and instead of being look-
ed upon as a criminal outlaw he was
regarded as a hero. Furthermore, his
example was followed by others. It
will also be remembered that one of
the- most cherished ideas of the Wal-
sall anarchists was the use of chloro-
form in the robbing of capitalists: in-
deed. a, bottle of chloroform for this
purposee was actually found in po-.
session of one of the, prisoners. The
propOeal was that men known to pos.
sefe money or valuables should be
followed into railway carriages or
when going home at night, and chloro.
formed and robbed.
This may scene strange in this couin.
try, but the device is mu(c employ-
ed in robberies on the C'ontinent. The
Lettish revolutionists In England
chiefly residhle in Leytonstone, Totten-
ham and the East End. They are well
known for the method of terrorism
they employ. Within the last two
years these revolutionaries have been
carrying on a campaignn of robbery in
Russia similar to the recent outrage
in Tottenham, the proceeds being de-
voted to the funds of their party.
In spite of much discussion an.!
notwithstanding the numerous out-
rages which have been conmittel

EQUINOCTIAL' STORM.

No One Special Disturbance When
the Sun Crosses the Line.
One of. the most popular notions
years agb was that storms of ex-
copptionnl severity were assoelat'1l
with the autumnal and vernal equfn-
oxeP. Iess faith in the notion has
laen entertained since official weath-
er bureaus have been established. I1
isa now possible to make more trust-
worthy records of wind force and rain.
fall than formerly. and to compare
them with different dates. Such t
comparison shows that storms are
more violent and,frequent In winter
than summer (except for summer
squalls, which are not widespread).
In a somewhat irregular fashion the
number diminishes from the cold
season to the watna mnd Increases
from the warm season to the cold.
There Is no sharply dividing-line be-
tween them, nor is there any one
disturbance of exceptional force with-
in a few days of either equinox.
Examination of the daily charts of
the weather bureau, which show the
air pressure, temperature, precipita-
tion and wind force at a great num-
ber of stations, brings out some curl
ous facts. Areas qf low pressure, or
storm centres, have certain pa:hsh
which they generally follow, and there
is an average speed at which they
more. Every now and th#n
however a storm unexpectedly
alters its route and affects
a region which might have been
expected to escape. Another freak la
to hasten along faster than was ex-
pect*e or to retard its movement,
as itf ran up against some allieen
obstacle. Perhaps the pressure .it
the centre will fall rather abruptly,
and cau.e winds of greater force than
could have been safely predicted the
day before. Some day it will prob-
ably be possible to understand those
puzzling performances better than
can be (lone now, but they cannot be
connectedd with any special late like
the equinox. A striking instance of
thbe kind was afforded early in the
(,itrent month. The blizzard whicli
prevailed on iniauguretlon day In th
Atlantic States was a surprise to theo
weather bureau, and was highly ex-
crptional in many days. It would not
be safe to predict another one on the
next March 4. The fact Is. there have
been both balmy weather and heavy
rain on different inauguration days,
and the same thing can be said ro*.
gardiirw March 21 and September 22.

DEAD LETTERS IN GERMANY.

Increase in the Quantity of Mall That
is imperfectly Addressed.
Germany has a high reputation for


the thoroughness with which its pos-
tal service is conducted, anT for the
pains taken to return letters to writ-
ers whose names and residence are
imperfectly known, but the troubles
of the government are steadily 'iu-
creasing. In the course of a single
day the average number of letters,
Iapers and packages which go to the
dead letter office now averages ten
thousand. For more than half (52 per
cent) It is Impossible to decide what
to do. In Il75 the proportion which
experts could not find a wgy to de-
liver was a trifle more than one*ftib.
The real cauae of this embarrass-
ment is the fincraing tillterary o!


the workeelBMs ibe a
sands who Mhve e- to
from otaer eolstries aed have had al-
most no schooling. Most of the let-
ters sent to the Dead Letter Depart-
ment have no city. village or town
Indicated, or have osly the first amle
of the party to whom they ate adt
dressed. Postal cards of the picture
kind are responsible for the bulk of
the non-deliveries. In 107 they furn-
ished about 75 per cent. or exactly
1,480.400. of the 1,978,50 scaes .-

RUSSIAN NOBLEMAN'S WOOING.


Pose as a Lady's Mald to Make Ao.
quaintance of a Baronees.
*A St. Petersburg paper publishes
details of a Russian romance In with
figures the wealthy and -beautiful
young Baroness ITrusoff, the widow of
a distinguished Russian government
official.
All the young cavaliers of Moseow
were hopelessly In love with her.
The baroness, however, rejected all
attempts to obtain an Introduction to
her and lived in perfect seclusion, at*
tended only by an elderly relative.
Some months ago a young peasant
girl began to visit the residence of
the baroness, offering the servants
cheap arthles for sale. Subsequently
the baroness used to buy different
articles from the peasant, who was
intelligent. had good mDners and
considerable conversational talents.
The baroness eventually asked the
girl whether she would enter her Fjr-

Shoes in Four Minutes. *

TTow long would it take you to
make a pair of boota. do you think?
You probably had better not. begin It,
especially if you need them bon.
Even'a cobbler in the old. days, work-
ing with his assistant, would spend
a day and a half making a pair of
boots, and the cost would be about
$4. But now,. of course, shoes are
made by. machinery, and it is aston-
Ishing to hear how quickly they are
made. It takes just four minutes to
make a pair of boots. And the labor
-cos.t is about .."7 cents. Of course, no
one makes the whole boot nowadays.
There are At hundred different men
making different partly of it, and each
one dcs the same thing over and
over again, and each man learns to
do his particular work especially well
and quickly. And you should see the,
buttons sewed on! A boy takes the
part of the shoes where the buttons
are to go and flts it intd a machine,
throws in a handful of buttons quite
carelessly, turns the machine, and In
no time out comes the piece of leath.
er with all the buttons exactly In the
right place No wonder some factor,
les turn out 10.000 pairs of shoos in
a day.--Ohicago Daily News.

"I am very sorry," he said. "that
you didn't let me send for Dr. Goo-

"Oh, well, doctor," said the patient,
wearily, perhapsu you can make use
of him as an accessory after the fact."

AN ASTRONOMICAL CATA8.
TkOPHE.
Possible Result of a Collision Be-
tween the Sun and a Dark Star. .
According ito a dispatch from Bosa
ton. professor Percival Lpwell mad)
the announcement one'day last month
that-o'there is a possibility that our
sun will collide with a dark star."
"Such an even would mean a general
upheaval of conditions on this plan.
et," said Professor Iowell, "and it
any inhabitants survived the disaster
night -and day would be about the
only features of the present order of
thhigs that would be recognizable.
The orbit of the earth would be
changed, the seasons would no longer,
follow in their order, and what the
climate would be no one can guess."
Of course, the chance that such #.
collision will otcur is so small that
there is no reason to think of it asn a
alarming possibility. Still, the remark
is based on two well known facts.
One is that the sun, together with Its
family of planets, is moving swiftly
and steadily through Ppace, The oth-
er is that there are such things as.
dark stars-suns which have radiate '
so much of their heat as to be na
longer luminous. There Is no way Of
ascertaining how many there are, but -
Simon Newcomb, a leading astronoml-
cal authority, thinks it not altogeth-
er unlikely that the dark stats are
more numerous than the bright ones.
A complete celestial census has never
been taken, but from counting the
bright stars in a-very small area it ha*
been estimated that their number does
not fall short of one hundred million!
The diameter of the sun is comput-
ed at about seven-eighths of a million
miles--upward of 860,000. The stars
are all-suns, big or little. The great
central orb of our solar system In-
calculably enormous ase t is, rates an -
a second class star. However, If It
should hit another star, visible or in-
visible, a 'tremendous disturbance
would be caused among the planets.
Hence there is comfort in the asaur-
ance that the chance is too small to
worry about.-New York Tribune.

A COLONIAL CITY.
I wish you could all come to Kings-
too and see the fine old things here.
It Is called the Colonial City hepause
It was settled in the o!l Coloniil
days, 'way back In 1A1, but It wis
called Wiltwyck then; so you ,a'n see
It is very oW. There are many o14
houses here. The oldest one Is call
ed the Senate House.
When the British burned our city
in the Revolution.iry War all the
houses were turned except the Sen-
ate House. Let me tell you something
about this house. It was built in
1676. and George Washington had his
headquarters here once. It was als)
the first capitol of New York state
It is two stories high and las mde of

many people visit It to view the old

went there I saw a spinning wheel,

THINK HARD
It Pays to Think About Food.

The unthinking life some people
lead often causes trouble and sick-
ness, illustrated in the experience of
a lady In Fond Du Lac, Wis.
"About four years ago I suffered
dreadfully from indigestion, always
having eaten whatever I liked, not
thinking-of the digestible qualities.
This indigestion caused palpitation of
the heart so badly I covrd not walk
up a flight of stairs without sitting
down once or twice to regain breath
and strength.
"I became alarmed and tried diet-
ing, wore my clothes very loose, and
many otner remedies, L&t found no
relief.
"Hearing of the virtues of Grape-
Nuts and Postumr, I coninwnnced using
them in place of my usual Ibreakftst
of coffee, cakes, or hot is'mit, and in
bne week's time I was relieved of
sour stomach and other ills attending
Indigestion. In a monti's tlime my
heart was performing its functions
naturally, and I could* climl) sltair
and hills and walk long di.stances.
"I gained ton pounds in this short
time, and my skin became clhar and I
completely regained my health and
strength. I continued to use Grape-
Nuts and Postum, for I feel that I
owe my good health entirely to their
use. "There's a Reason."
"I like the delicious flavor of
Grape-Nuts, and by making Postumn
according to directloni it tastes almi-


lar to mild high grade coffee."

spice of romance about a "dead heat
of three."
At York In 1896 for the dminton
Plate three horses passedlhe poet
looked together. They were *Mesla,
Badardo and Casse Co&. ridden reI
spectively by M. Oannon, T. Loates
and S. loates. A third.Lo|tes was
fourth on Hamptendale, and he was
beaten only a short hed by the lead-
Ing trio.

and placed fourth by the Judge. Some
good judges who saw thme race, says
Belly's Malasine, declare that if It
had -been called *- "dead beat of
five" no one would have cavilled at
the ofmcial verdict.
In 1845 on the Thursday of th6
Newnmarket Houghton meeting two
.'dead hearts of three" occurred lan
the same afternoon.
In 1882 there was a dead beat of

course at Sandown Park. The dead
heaters were R. 8. Evans's ,Marden
(R. Wyatt), P. Lorillard's Gerald
(F. Wehb) and the Duke of Hamal-
ton's Leonora (J. Watts). In the
runoff Marden, who in the meantime
had had his plates removed and ran
unshod, won by three lengths, a head
only separating second and third.
The most notable dead beat of
three was the finlsb for the Cesare.
*witch In 1867 between El filakm,
Prioress (an4inerican entry) and
Queen Bess. There were thirty-four
runners, and the starting prices of
the dead heaters were 8-to 1 El Hak-
Im, 30 to 1 Prioress and Queen BesS.
In the decider, which was run off in
the waning light, George Fordhbm
was substituted for Tankesley ba

length and a hatf, a head separating
the other two.
Once there was a dead heat of
four at Newmarket in a sweepstakes
for two-year-olds, run over the first
half of the Abingdon mile. This wai
at the Houghton meeting in 1856.
Five started and the race resulted In
a dead heat of four, the flfth horse
being only ,beaten half a length. The
decider was won by a head, half a

Ainslee's Magaoine.
Eleven short stories, a complete
novel, 9 serial, two essays, a critical
review of new plays and notices of
the latest books Is the program of-
fered in Ainslee's for June.
This abundance of short stories
might not *be especially noteworthy
were It not for the fact that they
are every one of them intensely in-
teresting and exceptionally well told.
The complete novel Is by Marl6
Van Vorst, and Is entitled "A Mad
Called Collings." It is a story of great
dramatic power, one which holds the
interest unimpaired from beginning to
end and is deeply emotional.
Harold MacGrath's serial. "The
Goose Girl," reaches its fourth Instal-
ment and promises a startling ell-
max.
The man with a sharp tongue
should mow the lawn ten times be-
fore speaking.

I ~at to ea ya about a t,
mned eoddy, whioe beloved to Mt
asmt oad unole. He was very Ittoel.
geat, sad samed to understand all
that was said to bhim. He disliked
strangers. and would disappear for
some time If any visited at his mas.
ter's house.
Teddy was obliged to do a trick
before eating. When a plate of meat
was held above his head he would
sit up on his hind feet like a dog.
Sad scratch his ear with his paw.
When my uncle came up the walk
toward the house Teddy would run to
meet him, and roll over and over at
hIs feet.
He dearly loved raw corn, and
would come running into the garden
tf he heard anyone husking corn or
tearing the ears from the stalk.
When Teddy died he was mourned
as for an only child by his master
and mistress.--Marion Parker. In the
New York Tribune.
A COMPOSrTIOY ON HENS. '
A little Kaneas boy wrote this com.
position on hens: "Hens Is curious an.i-
mals. They don't have no nose. nor
no teeth, nor no ears. The outside of
hens is generally put into pillars and
feather dusters. The inside of a hen
Ia sometimes filled up with marbles
and shirt button and sich. A hen In
very much smaller than a good many
other animals but they will dig up
more tomato plants than any thing
that ain't a hen. Hens is very use-
ful to lay eggs for plum pudding. I
like plum pudding. Skinny Bates eat
so much 'plunm pudding once that it
set him Into the collery. Hens has
got two wings and can fly when they
are sort. I cut my Uncle William's
hen's rgck off with a hatchet and it
scart hir to death. Hens sometimes
make iery flne spring chickens."-

L4SI, TO SEE THE STORK.
Little Freddie was told by the
nurse ope morning that the stork had
visited the house during the night and
left him a little baby sister, and ask-
ed itf li would like to see her.
"I ocntt care nothing about the
baby." vaid Freddie, "but I'd like to
see the stork."--Bee Hive.
pretty But Useless.
When old Perkins left the house In
which he had lived for forty years,
and arrived with all his household
goods and treasures at the home of
his son, there was trouble.
One of his most treasured family
heirlooms was missing--a big family
album bound in full calf. Perkins was
inconsolable. "I've used it regular for
years." he said, "and I wouldn't 'ave
lost it for worlds."
"Never mind," said his son. "we'll
see what can be done about It."
And from that day he commenced
having up his money until he had
sufficient to buy a new album, beau-
tifully bound in crimson plush, with
great brass clasps, which he present-
ed to his father, naturally expecting
an outburst of thanks. But no.
On seeing it the old man's Jaw fell
to an alarming degree. Then he bang-
ed his withered fiat on the table with
a force that simply staggered young
Perkins. "In the name of goodness,
man," he roared, "who could strop
a razor on that?"-Tit-Bits.

Nearly all women suffer at times from female
ailments. Some women suffer more acutely and
more constantly than others. But whether you have
little pain or whether you suffer intensely, you
should take Wine of Cardui and get relief.
Cardui is a safe, natural medicine, for women,
prepared- scientifically from harmless vegetable in-
gredients. It acts easily on the female organs and
gives strength and tone to the whole system.


TAKE


The Woman's Tonic "
Mrs. Verna Wallace, of Sanger, Tex., tried Cardui. She writes:
"Cardui has done more for me than I can describe. Last spring I
was taken with female inflammation and consulted a doctor, but to
ho avail, so I took Cardui, and inside of three days, I was able to do
my housework. Sifice then my trouble has never returned." Try it.
