making a crop of sweet potatoes that
rival the far famed "Murphys." The

known all the way to the Maine

able yam, are a diet complete.

MRW Spaln sceed*S a 1 resh0ng e.mptelykta a h l Ago
IU-idtlltarlst volation by the gi0ple method of h l A I d bt
range, the war In Morooco remains an uonolved polie. Tho
Oeases for that war are these:
It is a commercial war, as are all wars of aggraadiaout;
one of those wars founded on the proposition: "You have some*
thing that we want; we will give you for It either an old brass
1 tt o or a new steel bullet."
The "something" which Spain In the present case wants ts the ri1h4, the
|' daneral riches that lie in the sun-roasted hills twelve miles to the outhwt
e Melills, the principal port of the Spanish "sphere of nlflueae" In MorOCCO.
A guXMp of 8panish financiers has spent much money In diffgin out these
M iurtl, and has succeeded in Interesting the Spanish Governmenlt lWo
ulotatou of the mines of Beni Bu Fruor. The minos are rich, but &iWdW
C, and it was decided to run a rallroqd down to them from Melila.
Sow,. a railroad to the Moors-and. Indeed, to most Mohalmedtas--8. a
e ggatatlng as a red cloak to a bull. It means Interfering with their namtidl@
baits, the seizure of some Shelk's right of way and a check on predatory priv-
Ileges. The proposed railway, at Casablanca, it will be remembered, was the
beginning of all the bloody trouble thereabouts.
The Riffs and the Kabyles, fierce tribesmen of the hills, blocked the pe.
posed railroad with their flocks of armed horsemen; the Sultan of Moroco
refused to interfere to protect foreigners,4 whom he considered interlopers;
Melilla was Invested, and the old feud between Moor and Iberian that begaX
hundreds of years ago Is once more,being fought out.

The Hole In the Ground.
By W. J. Lamb.
AM glad to note that Camille Flammarlon favors digging a pit
into the the bosom of the oarth and finding out what lies between
the surface and the lowest attainable depth, and I hope he will
have better luck In the fruition of his hopes than I have had.
Twenty years or so ago I began to talk and write about the
same subject, and later, when our millionaires began pouring the
foods of their wealth into the lap of education, I bobbed up again
with a suggestion that they would better pour some of it into the bowels of
the earth. But they would not respond, nor have they done so yet. Just why
I have never been able to discover, because more education along certain lines
could be got out of a hole in the ground for less money than by any other
means I know of. Just what It would cost to sink a shaft twenty feet square
Into the earth as far Rs interior cQnditions would permit I am not prepared to
state, not being an engineer or contractor, but if It cost as .ruch as $100,000 a
mile, $1,000,000 would shove it down as far as ten mites, and it Is a pretty
safe guess that at that depth an appropriation for ice would be in order for the
comfort of the diggers.
But who knows what? Who knows anything about what a shaft wowd
bring forth from those mysterious inner recesses? Mines have been sunk to
such depths in the Rock j ]f trains that the heat drove the miners out, but ll
a straight shaft downward, w ete cold air could be constantly forced In1 from
the surface-owho knows how far down the work might be extended? Mr.
Rookefeller and Mr. Carnegie have got their wealth out of the depths of the
a"rth; why should they quit at that? Why shouldn't they lat some of that
money back there and see what riches of knowledge for the whole world might
be produced?
Who swill start the hole in the ground? If Mr. R. or Mr. C. will not put
down their money, why will not some young fellow with too many Inherited
millions to be of any other value to himself or the world tumble to his poltOS
tialities and make a famous name for himself and his family by sinking the
shaft? Even If he should fall into the hole that he has digged he will have
done mtore than If he had never digged at all.

Don't Be An Imitator.
By Orison Swett Marden.
H'E Imitator ruins his capacity for originality; for Initiative; he
loses his creative power; his Inventiveness and resourcefulness
are never developed. In fact, his executive ability-the ability to
originate, to do thinge-is seriously crippled, If not utterly deo
stroyed by his efforts to imitate some one else.,
No human being ever yet made a success trying to be some-
body else, no matter how great or successful that person might
be. Success can not be successfully copied; it is original; it is self-expression.
A man Is a failure Just in 'proportion as he gets away from 1hoselL
When Henry Ward Beecher and Phillips Brooks were sat the, height of
their tame, hundreds of young clergymen tried to copy their style, their man-
S risams, their mode of expression, gestures, habits, but they fell .as far sort
Mthe power of either of these giants as the common chromo falls abort of the
SmastMrpoee. Not one of these imitators ever amounted to aejt.ing until he
-~ stopped copying, Imitating, and began to build on his own foundbteo a..
,A great many clergymen to-day merely echo other preachers' sermons
.whvl they have.read and absorbed. The majority of the books published are
io, m. s of previous books, echoes of the authors whose style "a4 plQot the
SyMttMers have copied. But these copied sermons and books lack vitality, fore,
'v sl es. nThey do not stir the blood or touch the heart of the hearer or
WI u'rThey are cold, lifeless.

RAILROAD OWNED BY TWO MEN
Humble Origin of Canadian Captain
of Finance.
In 1896 there was no Canadian
Northern Railroad; today there ar
7,000 miles of it in operation, un-
der construction or surveyed. At
the present rate of extension it will
in a few years form a continuous
streak of steel from ocean to ocean,
making, the third transcontinental
highway in Canada.
The Canadian Northern is unique
among railroads, Hampton's Magaszin
says, In that Its shares are not scat-
tered among a large number of
holders, but are owned and controlled
by two men. William Mackenzie and
Donald D. Mann, two of the most ln-
teresting characters Canada has yet
produced.
Mackenzie's early experiences mo
brace school teaching, operating a
sawmill and running a country store
la Kirkteld, Ont. He is known as
a financial wizard. His ability to se-
cure capital to float his enterprises
Is one of his chief characteristics.
He slips over to England every now
and then so quietly that he is back
almost before anyone is aware of his
departure-and he brings with him
the cash needed for new railway ex-
tensions or big enterprises of some
kind.

and for getting the majority of them

My friend from St. Louts found that
South. He needed personal laundry.
Ing, and he saw a sign relating to
baths, on the door of his room In a
hotel.
"Hal" he shouted. "Dis'-ovored! I
have trailed a bath to Its lair."
The bath lady came. "I desire,"
sald my friend from St. Louis.
through the crack of the wardrobe
door where he was hiding, being
rqady, so to speak, for his rath. "I
desire a baln-bath, you know-

"oul," said the bath lady, waving
her hand at the sign on the d-oor.
"Bude," assented the man from St.

"Oui," smiled the bath lady, and
presently the procession began. First

"Holy smoke!" yelled the man from
St. louis. "Do you think I am col-

the baths there are? Take some of
these damn baths away." But no. iHe
had to take them. The attendant saw
to that. If a crazy American came
along and desired all the baths in
stock, far be ij from the Swiss hotel-
keeper to disappoint him, Also, far
be it from him not to remember the
fact in the bill.
That is a fine attribute of the
Swiss. They are calm and literal.

In passing through some sections
of Iowa c several months ago we saw a
nuMober of well-kept farms that were
well supplied with water and fine
pasture that would have been ideal
rounds for the growing of geese, but
not a goose could be seen for miles
around. From the car window we
could see broad acres of land covered
with the finest of beef and dairy cat-
tie, but the geese were found want-
ing. A few acres could have been
fenced off for Ieese, and a profitable
income could have been realized from
this department without robbing the
cattle or other live stock of any pot-
slble growth whatever.
There pre enough varieties of geese
to nasble all admirers to Indulge In
their fancey. The different varieties
reeog saed by the standard are the
Toulouse, Embden, African, Chinese.
Wild or Canadian, and Egyptian.
Tber stand in popularly in the or-
der -amed. The White Chinese geese
are very popular in some sections of
the country. They are bred princi-
pally for the fancy trade. To our
mind they are the most stylish of
the goose family and with their gen-
tle disposoions are a great favorite
with those who wish to handle geese
for pleasure. Personally I prefer the
Toulouse, 3mbden or African geese,
espedaliy it I bould breed for mar-
ket purposes, for they grow to an
enormous siae. The males often grow
to weigh twenty-five pounds, whlPe
the standard requires but twenty
pounds. The casual observer can
easily see that goose farming can be
made a paying industry. The com-
maadig weights are easily obtaineJ'
with but Ulittle expense. Turkeys are
prfitable fowls in rural districts, but
they are subject to blackhead, liver

CAUSE AND CURE FOR GAPES.
In answer to an inquire to his of-
fice, Prof H. A. Surface, of the Do-
partment of Agriculture, of Pennsyl-
vania, gives the following suggestions
as to the cause of gapes in chickens
and some remedies therefore:
"Gapes in little chickens are caused
by the eating of earth-worms. There
are parasites in the earth-worms
which find their way into the wind-
pipe of the chicken and lodge there.
where they take the form of little
red worms. The best preventive is
to keep the chickens from the sur-
face of the ground; or use salt or
strong salt water on the soil, so as
to kill the earth-worms; or strew
strong lime or something of the kind
on the ground, so that the chicks will
not get hold of the worms to eat
them.
"After the chicks have been attack-
ed with gapes, however, you can dis
lodge the worms by making a very
rnall loop In a twisted horse hair.
draw out the tongue of the chick
slightly, insert the horse hair loop in
the windpipe opening, which will be
seen between the forks at the 'base of
the tongue, and, twisting the hair
around, withdraw it. The worms are
likely to be found within the loop, or
soU e of thlem will have been thus
removed. and the operation can be re-
peated. '
"Another remedy is to dip the tip
of a soft feather into kerosene and
Insert 4t in the windpipe opening to
dis)Olte and kill the worms. Such
treatment, although severe, is better
than letting. the 'worms remain undis-
turbed, to severely annoy the fowls
and.-eva kill them.

stancese in the food of the young poul-
try has not proven satisfactory as a

feet the poultry quarters thoroughly
with some reliable disinfectant. In
my opinion there is no sure cure for"
typhoid, in advanced owes, but a per-
tistent effort must be taken to pro-
vent further spreading of the dis-
ease. Keep the water constantly sup-
plied with a good disinfectant, such
as the coal tar preparations which aro
often advertised in these columns, o'.

where. I have used these remedies
with best of results.-J. C. Clipp.

THE INTENSIVE METHOD.
The late Prof. Gowell, of the 'Malue
Experiment Station, kept 2,000 pul-
lets on an area of L'00x400 feet, a lit
tie over two acres, with an allowance
of but four square feet of house room
to each fowl. From these birds G00
to 900 eggs we're gathered daily In
December of 1905 and January In
1906. And yet we are told fowls will
not c, well on restricted areas. It
woulJ seem that careful management
was an essential factor in the su'-
cess of this intensive method. While
not every one could, perhaps, euo-
ceed with such limited space, it has
been demonstrated that it is possib'p
to do so.

His Only tuIeseful Meanse f Le**
motion Now Is Rolling.
There is an animal fancier In this
town who has the must pe'allarly
afflicted and odd-looking dog veterin-
arians of the Cumberland valley ever
have seen. It is a beagle hound, and
the doctors say it has elephantlasts.
Alexander B. Mlbhouse is the own-
er of the strange looking creature.
As a puppy it was normal in size,
but its body soon gave signs of at-
taining abnormal proportions. The
dog, of the variety which naturally
has exceedingly short and stumpy
legs, began when young to develop
such a great girth that when stand-
ing on all-fours its stomach touched
the ground. Since then it has grown
fatter, until now it cannot touch its
four feet on the ground at once.
A result Is that it can walk only
with its body inclined far to one
side, and then only with two feet
on the same side, the movements of
which serve to send the dog around
in a circle. When It tries to walk
without Inclining its body to one side
or the other the legs simply fan the
air helplessly. They don't touch
ground by an Inch and a half.
"Sausage" Is the dog's name. The
only way it can travel in a straight
line by Itself is when in the water.
By reason of its great bulk it floats
easily. Many of the girls of Wil-
son College have been much amused
at seeing Milhouse take the dog for
a swim in the creek back of tho
college grounds. It uses its stubby
legs to good advantage like a fish
uses its fins, and seems to take great
delight in this its easiest method of
locomotion.
Sausage is a good-natured dog, and
cheerful in spirit. When an S. P.
C. A. agent went to see whether the
dog's ailment caused suffering such
as to require it being killed he fo'jnd
Sausage wagging its tall h**ppily and
gnawing a bone like any other dog.
The animal weighs fully 60 pounds.
It has a keen scent for rabbits, and
when a .wild bunny got into Mil-
house's back yard recently the dog got
so excited that, powerless to run, it
made itself into a ball and rolled
down a terrace in pursuit of the
bunny.-Cham-bersburg (Pa.) Dis-

Seven Drams of Radium.
A value of 4 a milligram (equiva-
lent to 114,000 an ounce) has been
placed on radium by a contract Just
entered Into between the British me-
talliferous mines and Lord Iveagh
and Sir Ernest Cassel for the supply
of 71% grams (rather more than a
quarter of an ounce) of pure radium
bromide. This very large order for
radium will be supplied from the
above named company's mine near
Grampound road in Cornwall. In the
short history of radium there has
never hitherto been known any great-
er order than a gram. The first re-
colored order on a large scale will
therefore be supplied from the Brit-
ish source from which several of the
smaller orders have already been sup-
plied. Messrs. Buchler & Co., of Bruns-
wick, will produce the radium from
the Cornish pitchblende under the
superintendence of Professor Glesel,
their chief chemist. The 7% grams
of radium referred to are to be pre-
sented by Lord Iveagh and Sir Ernest
Cassel to the radium institute, to the
information of which they have al-
ready contributed very largo funds.
The radium institute, which will be
under the surgical direction of Sir
Frederick Treves, is expected to be
ready to receive -patients suffering
from cancer about the end of the
present year.-London Times.

Wellman and Andre.
"Walter Wellman is bound to
fall," said a Chicago aeronaut, dis-
cussing on the Atlantic City Board-
walk the destruction of the explor-
er's airship shed at Bpitzbergen.
He'll never reach the pole in his
balloon.
"The balloon, a prey to every win4
that blows, is no vehicle to bravo
the boreal horrors In. Andree's fate
proved that. And if Wellman ever
floats poleward-I don't ,believe he
ever will--people will afterward tell
the same story about him that he
once told about Andree.
"According to Wellman's story.
there was a certain German private
soldier named Andree. This was i
short time after the real Andree's seu-
sational departure in his airship.
Well, the kaiser, reviewing some
troops one day, asked a number *t
men their names, and Andree was
among this number. The kaiser
smiled at him good-humoredly.
"'So your name is Andree, eh?'
the kaiser said. 'Do you know you've
got a very famous namesake?'
Yes, your majesty,' the soldier
answered.
"'And who told you that?' small
the kaiser.
"'My captain, your majesty,' said
the soldier.
"'Aha, your captain, oh? And what
did your captain tell you about An-
dree?'
"*He said, your majesty, that ho
only wlshed Andree had taken me
with him!' "-Washington Star.

Monoplane and Biplane.
In aviation the monoplane contin-
ues to make more rap!d progress than
the biplane, and an effort is now be-
ing made by many designers to re-
dude the area of the planes and thus
to make the machine more compact.
In a new American biplane, the Cur-
tiss, the area of the planes has been
reduced so murh that the machine
has only about half the total spread
of the Wright biplane. The Curtiss.
of course, has. not the same carry-
ing capacity as the Wright, but al-
ready it has made 'several satisfac-


tory flights. Higher speed will be re-
quired to lift these small machines,
but undoubtedly as designs are Im-
proved and greater efficiency is de-
rived from engines, they will be far
more serviceable and compact ma-
ohines than those at present in vogue.
The recent development in mono-
planes is traceable in no small de-
gree to engine improvement, and the
,rench are working at this point
with great energy. Later on, bi-
planes will get improved engines bet-
ter adapted for their peculiar require-
ments, and then there will be a now
development in this class of ma.
chine.-London Times.

taat never before has a writer of

Aristotle knew how one ought to be
written; we shall rarely find ina the

The Kind You Have

Always Bought


But before she could drop her glasses
he had smiled. In embarrassment
she raised her glasses again, look-
ing ostentatiously at every point of.
the landscape but where the hand-
some young haymaker worked. When
Sophie next looked at her she was
assiduously plying her fountain pen.
The authoress, a novice in the field
of literature, described the scene, the
brook, the warm, green fields with
the hills rising softly beyond, and in
detail she described the farmer. She
wove into the tale the episode of the
field glasses, elaborating upon the
meeting of the eyes, and causing the
heroine to succumb to the charms of

"The Daily Gallop."
As they stared at the name with
dawning comprehension, he said. "I
edit the fiction department. Truth Ia
sometimes stranger than fiction;
don't you think so, Miss Constance?"
The fiction department of the Gal-
lop was left much In the hands of
assistants that summer. The editor
had urgent business in the vicinity of
his father's farm. He and Constance
spent their honeymoon there the fol-
lowing summer, and he played Agrl-
cola again In the hay field by the
gurgling stream.-Boston Post

His eyes are bright as dlew drops

His hat is ragged on the edge, his

And snuggles up all Jam and mud

The

Transflguration


of


Agricola

DY ADELAIDE NEWELL


Two girls sat beneath the broad
shade of an ash tree by the bank of
a pleasant stream. One was sketch-
ing the lovely piece of nature before
them, and the other sat with her
back against the tree trunk with a
writing pad on her knee, even and
anon sighing heavily. Beyond the
gurgling waters stretched a sunny
hay field, whose sweet fragrance was
wafted gently across by the summer
breeze. A tall young farmer was
making hay.
An especially disconsolate sigh
from the girl with the writing pad
fetched a rebuke from the artist.
"Go to work, Constance, and earn
your week's board money."
"Can't," complained the other. "The
plot I had worked out in my mind
falls flat on paper. I haven't done
a thing for days. Do suggest some-
thing, Sophie."
"Where Is your romantic eye?" de-
manded Sophie. "See yonder clod-
hopper blithely mowing the green-
sward. Make a story apout him. lie
looks every inch a hero with those
shoulders and muscles. If he'd come
near I'd like to paint him. There
Is no need of succumbing to writers'
cramp with all this raw material ly-
Ing around loose waiting to be manu.
factured Into a finished product. Now,
go to work and tell us about young
Agrlcola."
There was a long silence after
this. The artist looked around once
and was amused to see her friend
levelling the field glasses upon the
unconscious young farmer.
"How near he seems," thought Con-
stance. "I can see the color of his
eyes. He does look a hero, to be
sure. What a magnificent head for
a farmer."
She abruptly dropped the glasses.
Agricola had seemed to look straight
through the lenses and into her eyes.

each other's eekla In a rather heak-
neyed style, and are presumably hap-

She called the story "The Trans-
formation of Agrlcola" and sent It
to The Dally Gallop, a newspaper
published in her own distant city,
mnd, the spell of Inertia being brok-
en, straightway reeled off other stor-
ies which she despatched to various
periodicals.
When Sophie was not looking for
fresh scenes to transfer to her can-
vas, the girls spent their time under
the favorite tree. As long as the
haying in the meadow across the
stream lasted, Constance surreptiti-
ously studied the young farmer
through the field glasses. But all
things temporal must end, especial-
ly grass, and the hay field soon was
stubble and knew the young Agricola
no more.
In a few weeks the story appeared.
Almost simultaneously with the re*
ceipt of the paper containing it, the
girls were startled by seeing the un-
mistakable figure of Agricola, hand-
some as Adonis but arrayed In a
clerical-looking garb, crossing the
stubble field toward the stream. A
mischievous whiff of wind suddenly
caught his Panama hat and whisked
it into the water, where it proceeded
to float down stream. The girls al-
most involuntarily sprang to assist
in the rescue. The wind had borne
it toward their side, and as they
reached the edge of the water the
hat was lodged temporarily against a
rock. Constance Impulsively stepped
from rock to rock and seized the
runaway just as It was slipping from
its mooring. Here was now a dilem-
ma. How was she to get the hat to
this troublesome person who was with
difficulty repressing his laughter? But
he was soon making his way to her
side by means of other rocks. It was
a perilous trip as the rocks were far
apart and slippery, but he finally
reached her, when she straightway
lost her footing and slipped into tho
brook. The clerical-looking person,
of course, could not do less than fish
her out and escort the ladies t4 their
boarding place, a near-by farmhouse.
As he uncovered his shapely I~ad In
parting, he said with extreme grav-
ity, "I am the Rev. Horace Blinn.
May I have the pleasure of calling?"
Constance turned the color of a
poppy, and without causing her the
embarrassment of a reply, the rev.
erend gentlemant departed.
The situation was confided to the
good lady where they boarded. She
laughed till tears stood in her eyes.
"You ne* In't be afraid of him," she
assured them. "I know him well. His
folks live about here. But he has
the joke on you and I shan't tell
any tales about him. You never
thought a farmer boy would be read-
ing your stories, did yout" And she
continued to laughed Immoderately.
The next morning Constance and
her friend were sitting in their fav-
orite spot under the ash tree when
the Rev. Horace Bllnn, in an appro-
priate outing suit came swinging
across the field, gracefully skipped
over the rocks uimlpeded by minis-
terial raiment, and joined them where
they sat.
With a murmur of apology and an
agreeable smile, he handed each of
the girls a card. They read. "Mr.
Herbert Deland" And in one corner,

One of the best advantage aS
Mateo enjoys la transportation l beig
an both river and rail is an advantage
that few Florida points eawa. The
past eaaon, for lntaaoe, railroads
oad terminals at Jacksonville were
more than congested and trait ship-
ped from points down the central
part of the state was,. In some eases,
three weeks getting to Jacksonville,
w route to northern market, and
did not bring enough to .pay trolht,
while San Mateo shippers, at same
time. would ship from here one day
and have fruit go out of J.,cksoavle
on the Olyde ship the next. This lUt
tie matter this season aloe was
worth thousands of dollars to the San
Mateo growers and the homneseker
will do well to bear In mind tran*s
.portaton and cheap rates that come
with competition, In selecting a Flor-
ida location.
The population Is about 560, who

Healthfulness.

tainly hits the truth when he says
the fashions thds summer are In exe-
crable taste. Slim women are made
to look like toothpicks and plump
women are made fo look twice their
natural asie. The slim women can

true to the contrariness of the sex.
it Is the woman of comfortable avolr-
dupols who pushes the fashions to
the extreme. Thus every woman
above the normal weight for her
height could gain in proportion hy
breaking her waist 'wdth a belt, but
invariably they run straight up and
down, thereby accentuating the *full-

hate like poison. The failure In th!s

SERVANTS AND THE SUtPRAGE
There Is not the least excitement
in Germany over the strenuous dolngi
of the scrappy suffragists in Zngland.
Repeated attempts have been made in
Berlin and other German cities to
awaken Interest in equal suffrage, but
the German women refuse to take the
subject seriously. They are satlsfie.l
to leave the turmoil of politics to
their husbands 'while they reason k
the homes. One practical argument
has been advanced: It is that the
servant.l equeston will become
more than serious If the ballot I"t
granted to women. The German Idet
Is that a woman who votes will not
be content to work am a servant, and
will demand legislation for her own
sodal upHlftIg. There may be truth
at tho beMeeof this straUg theory.

elation of Maryland, says that In eer-
tain States where men work under
an eight-hour law. women and chill
dren are employed twelve to four-
teen hours and receive one-half the
pay of the men. She says that only
nineteen out of the half hundred
States and Territories have legislt-
tion favoring working women at all.
and In most of these States it Is In
favor of girls under 18 years old, who
are not permitted to work after 10
o'clock at nigtt or before 6 o'clock In
the morning. Mr3. Funck says one
of the most pressing needs of the
country is legislation for women.-

Beef for Christmas Difner.
The Christmas beef habit is grow-
ing stronger in New York. The cus-
tom of buying a nice prime roast of
beef for the holiday dinner s 'grow-
ing and the good old English cus-
tom is being revived of making beet
the main Christmas dish.
There was plenty of choice Ohrist-
mas beef in New York this year, and
while the hotel and restaurant trade
god the most of it by bidding high,
there was plenty of good stuff left
for the private trade. The butcher
does not care bow soon the turkey
goes out of fashion as a Christmas
dish and eef takes its place.-Na-

Marvels About a Watch.
A watch Is the smallest, most dell-
eate mechime that was ever coestruct-
ed of the same -nmber of parts.
About 171 6Ifferent pleces of mas
trial water Into Its construction, and
upward of 2,400 separate operations
are comprised In Its manufacture.
Some of the facts connected with
Its performance are simply Incredi-
ble. when considered In total. A
blacksmith s*rikes several hundred
blows on his anvil in a day, and is
right glad when Sunday comes
around; but the roller Jewel of a
watch makes every day, and day af-
ter day, 432.000 Impacts against the
/ork, or 157,680,000 blows in, a year
without a stop or rest. or 3,153,600,000
In the short space of twenty years,
says a watchmaker In the Chicago
News.
These fAgures are beyond the grasp
of our feeble intellects, but the mar-
vel does not stop here. It has been
estimated that the power that moves
the watoh is equivalent to only four
times the force used in a flea's jump;
consequently it might bea. called a
four-flea power. One horse-power
would suffice to run 270,000,000
watches.
Now the balance of a watch is
moved by this four-flea power one
and forty-three-one-hundredths inches
with each vibration-3,558% miles
continuously in one year.
M you would preserve the time-
keeping qualities of your watch you
should take it to a competent watch-
nmaker once every eighteen months.-

My Dear John: I am writing ac-
eording to promise from the great,
the woiderftl city of New York. I
ha4e been asked if I did not wish
to live here: I said "yes," but It
seemed almost a crime to add one
more to the population. There it is,
much a world of people crowded into
so limited a space. You step out of
doors' and you are in a crowd at
once. The great wonder is that or-
#er is maintalhed. But .order it
kept, and very good order. Every
one seems too occupied ,with his own
affairs to care for or pay attention
to his neighbor. It is like a colony
of bees; and such a comb as these
human bees have built up here. Cell
piled on cell until It seems as if
some of It at least must topple over.
I will not attempt to give figures
or describe any one building in par-
ticular, but the general Impression
is one of awe. The sight of these
great buildings and the Insane crowd-
Ing of people is somewhat distress-
ing to a sober minded person. There
Is something abnormal, unhealthy in
such a city. New York attending to
business, New York at work is very
serious, very much in earnest. Every-
thing Is done like a matter of life
and death, and I suspicion this is
really so and that the great major-
ity of those doing business In New
York are doing it perilously near to
the precipice of bankruptcy. I was
walking along Fifth avenue with the
proprietor of a large hotel and spoke
of this. He said it 'was so. "To
do business," he said, "In New York,
one must have' plenty of backbone
and plenty back of the backbone." So
no wonder they work so seriously.
When quitting time comes it is
like when you throw a brick into
a hornet's nest. The people pour
out, swarm out and thicken the al-
ready congested streets and stream
off in all directions. One cannot fol-
low them home, but we can imagine
them bolting a quick meal, when the
eternal unrest sensee them again and
off they go to Coney Island and where
not for amusement. They call it
amusement, recreation; but I think It
is merely a little sugar to make more
palatable the bitter pill of business.
It to a 'wonderful sight to see 200,000
people at play. Coney Island is the
playground. it Is such a playground
as no sane fellow would even dream
of.


If you were set down in Luna Park
(excuse me, Lunatic Park) you, would
find It hard to believe that you were
In the United States and among a
sane community. I stood and watched
grown men and women (sane wom-
en) sit down an a slippery carved In-
cline and slide shelter shelter, with
great ewiftneas, and land at the foot
In great disorder as to their clothes,
especially the women. Thousands
stood about and watched the childish
po erormance and were contest to pay
for the privilege. They must pay

WHERE MEN ARE WOOED.
Maids of Ecausesnes Are the Suitors

Once upoh a time, many, many
years ago, when men and maids
used to carry on their courtships in
a manner far different from tfat
which obtains today, a bashful suit.
or entered the town of Ecaussines In
Belgium. At a loss for words, he
planted In the darkness of the night
of April 30 a white birch tree be-
fore the doorway of the house of his
beloved one, In order that it might
plead the purity of the cause to
which his fluttering heart, draining
him of equanimity, prevented him from
doing verbal Justice, The next morne-

vitation to call. The lad sought out
the lass, was welcomed, entertained
and encouraged. A "happily ever af-
ter" ending followed. Since that day
the plan adopted by the timtorous
lover has become a custom in Boaue-
sines and suitors both bold and bash.
ful have since employed it
In the last four years, however,
there has evolved from this charm-
ing custom a grand fete, in which
all of the eligible men from towns
for miles around Ecausslnes have
gathered at the quaint Belgian vil-
lage and taken unto themselves wives
from the wards of the municipality.
The conveniences of this oceaston
are beyond computation for those of
the young men with courage enough
to propose marriage, but the hesitat-
ing have often come away wifeless
and sad, victims of their own em-
barrassment. To better the lot of
these would-be Benedicts and give
them a chance with their more for-
tunate brethren, a new rule nla the
matrimonial game was agreed on this
year, and when April S0 came the
blushing maidens of Ecaussnles were
4vited to come to thb nearby towu
of Ronquleres and there, instead of
being pursued, were requested to fol-
low out the "Superman" Idea of be-
coming the pursuers and making prW-
posals of marriage to those men who
struck their Vancles. -
Willingly the difident male permit-
ted himself to be wooed sad wea;
and now the young men are clamoring
for the permanent establshment of
this scheme which puts them beyond
the daner of bearing the dreaded
4"o" frm the lips of a womaa.-
