FOREST A. BAILEY.


At his home here Wednesday eve-
ning at 10 o'clock, Forest A. Bailey
quietly passed away.
He had been ill with dengue, but
was feeling better Tuesday at
noon. By the middle of the after-
noon, however, fever cam; up on lhini
again and his temperature rati above
100. He became uncoiincious and re-
mained so until the end. Every-
thing possible was done for his re-
lief, but to no avail. The funeral
was held from the home Thursday
afternoon at 4 o'clock, Rev. D)utill,
of the Methodist church of Palatka,
conducting the services. The body
was laid away In the cemetery here.
Mr. Bailey was 56 years of age.
He was born at Sehoharie. N. Y.,
and came here a mere lad as one of
San Mateo's early settlers. In later
years he engaged in bhu.iness in the
East and in Chicago and traveled
extensively over the States, hut
came back to Stn Mateo and settled
permanently several years ago. He
established the San Mateo Item in
1891 and was its publisher for about
three years.
Mr. Bailey wasta man possessed
of many admirable traits of charac-
ter and 'is neighbors among whom
he lived and who knew himn best feel
the loss of a friend whose place in
their affections can never again be
filled. Iii his later years he was af-
flicted with total blindness, but even,
this did not mar his cheerful de-
mneanor and naturally jovial dis-
position.
He leaves a wife, two daughters,
Addle and Lula, and three sons,
Harry Forest A. Jr., and J. C. V..
the two fast -named being now in
business in Chicago. There also
survives him one sister, Mrs. S. W.
Rowley.
The sympathy of all our people
goes out to the bereaved family.

Well, well, well. And then they
keep on telling us about llaftorula

these years of experience California
o.tll ships green sour fruit?-It looks
that way,.


The "wet or dry" petition to call
an election was turned down by the
County Commissions at their last

*,AIt ia curious fact that the ratio
1 really gifted blind people is out
I all proportion to their total num-
,r when compared with those who
oV fall power to see.
*T. cases of Helen Keller and of
Gore are familiar to every one.
nrmiddle West has produced an-
remarkable blind man in "Blind
y," the '"St. Louis Sherlock
im s," as he has been called, a
DwTp practising at the bar. Ac-
a4dlng to Van Norden's Magazine,
MA powers of deductive reasoning are
almost uncanny.
Nie can tell on entering a room how
many persons are there assembled.
c oan give you the dimensions of
room without walking around It.
ot. It appears, he has solved the
viftery of the fourth dimension, and
hal apparently developed a sixth
sense.
In challenging jurors this blind at-
torney displays a Judgment of char-
acter that is miraculous to the man
gifted with sight. There are honest
and dishonest voices, he says, and
he makes astonishingly accurate de-
cisions.
Walter A. Kelley lost his sight
when 11 years old. lie is only '9
now. He was educated at a school
for the blind, and then took a course
=t the St. Louis Law School and was
graduated with honors in 1904.
He explains his professional suc-
cesses by pointing out that the human
mrmory can be so cultivated that any-
tig read aloud can be engraved
uppn the mind to be called upon at
will.
The list of the blind who have
achieved a success at least equal to
that of seeing men of their own
standing in education and intelli-
gence might be continued indefinitely.
There are 06tt. Brayton, the blind
boss of Rhode Island; (hris Buck-
the blind boss of San Francisco;
Wi. Wlliam Moon. who Invented a
system of reading for old and
LMlkitive fingers, and whose son,
Robert Moon, is secretary of the
ainnsylvanae Home Teaching So-
ety and Free Circulating l.ilrnry
fr the Blind.
There is the Ie\v. Williaim Hres*
ford of lFngland, who lost his sight
while playing with his little broth-
er. Dr. Morrlon Hieady of Nor-
mandy, who lost his sight and hear-
Swhen a boy, but who wrote verses
no mean calibre.
There is Prof. E. D. C(ampbell,
who holds the chair of chemistry at
A Arbor, and another blind man
of the same name is Dr. F. J. Camp-
bell, IL. D., who is an American, but
holds the position of head at the
Normal College in England. Blind
as he Is, Dr. Campbell climbed Mont
rof. Edward Crowell taught Latin
# Amherst for fifty years, during
Weaty of which he was quite sight-
lL Prescott. the historian, was

THE COUNTY PAIR.


Breds Oood-dellowshlp and
borly Competition.


Neigh.


.Ho for the county fair! The folks
will all be there, and Cousin Jane
and Uncle Bamrn, and the pigs and the
cows and the big prize ram, and the
bales of hay and the bands that play
-why, the folks they just can't keep
away; you miss a lot If you don't
go-say, will you be at the county
fair?
It's time to harness up the horses
and put all the family In the carriage,
the buggies, and the big wagon, and
drive them right up to the spot that
for, several days is the center of
the country.
If you have never been to a county
fair, you have missed your share of
life's fun. But it cannot be possible
that you never have been. Everybody
goes, everybody and his wife and all
the children. And they do have one
good time. The exhibits are inter-
esting, and range all the way from
the races-on which it is whispered
that some of the reckless bet real
money-to the close contest between
Mrs. Williams' blackberry jam and
Mrs. Jones quince preserves. There
you see the melons, the pumpkins.
the tomatoes, and corn and turnips
that look as fine as the pictures on
the seed packages. The prize bull
and the 400-pound Berkshire hog di-
vide interest with the pet ponies end
the trim thoroughbreds. And down
the midway there are all kinds of
shows, exciting enough to keep the
crowd in a state of constant amuse-
ment. After going Into the moving
picture tent, and seeing the snake
charmer and hearing the lady with
the cracked-ice voice sing and dance;
after trying to toss rings around the
canes and throwing a few baseballs
at the "nigger's" head,'buying peanuts
andI popcorn and drink a glass or two
ot red lemonade, you and your girl
('an go over and get your picture
"took" or takcn, Just as you like.
The county fair is a lively institu-
tion, and it flourishes in -Maryland as
though native to the soil. From Poco-
mnoke to Hagerstown, from Frederick
to Upper .Marlboro, it calls its thou-
sands. It has made Prospect Park
interesting: it has made Timonlum
famous. The show Itself is more
than worth the money. But the real
fun is In the crowds, and one reason
the county fair has survived and
pro!#gred is that it furnishes once a
year an opportunity for all the neigh-
bors and kinspeople from a wide see
tion to get together In a gathering
in which good feeling reigns supreme.
It is a great time for the renewal
of old friendships and the formation
of new Sacquaintances, it is the one
time when the rich and the poor all
mingle together In an amiable de-
morseay that is beneflical to both.
That is why you will fnd It proatable
to go to the fair, wherever It Is held
-at Roekville or uaatos, on the
Master Shore or nla the Cumberland
Valley. Mr you will Sad the same
erowd ef good people emjoytag thea

PRUIT SALAD.
This can be made of almost any
fruits, such as bananas, peeled and
sliced; freih or preserved cherries,
oranges broken up into quarters;
strawberries, raspberries, apricots,
etc. Stone and cut up the fruit with
a silver knife, and let It all soak for
an hour or so in a syrup flavored with
liquor and a little sugar. Serve in a
china or glass bowl, with whipped
cream.-Boston Post.
LUNCHEON DISH.
Coldslaw served in green pepper
shells makes a tasty and attractive
luncheon dish. Take a small firm
head of cabbage and shred fine with a
sharp knife. Add to this chopped
hard-boiled eggs. Mix with a dress-
Ing made of a cup of sour cream,' a
tablespoon of sugar, salt and pepper,
and a cup of vinegar. Stuff the green
pepper shells and serve on Individual
plates with hot buttered toast.-New
York Times.
POTATOES AND ONIONS SAUTED.
Take an equal amount of small raw
potatoes and onions of equal size,
peel them, place them in a frying pan
with a good sized lump of butter, toss-
ing them over the fire for a quarter
of an hour, being careful they do not
burn; put them in water to about half
the height of the vegetables, add a lit-
tle salt and pepper, place the lid over
pan, stew gently half an hour, then
squeeze in a little lemon juice, turn
on to a hot dish and serve.-Boston
Post.

RICE AND PLUMS.
Two cupfuls of milk, 2 ounces of
rice, 1 heaping tablespoonful of sugar
and 1 teaspoonful of vanilla extract.
Put the milk Into a saucepan on the
fire and when it bolls add the rice,
well washed, sprinkling it into the
boiling milk. Add the sugar and va-
nilla.
The mixture should be Just thick
enough to pour into a wet mould.
Leave it in the mould till cold, then
loosen round the edge, shake gently,
and turn it on to a pretty dish. Ar-
range some nicely stewed plums
round the rice, adding also the syrup
from the fruit.-Boston Post.


TOMATOES WITH PEAS.
Select tomatoes of equal size and
shape and remove the skin. Cut a
small piece from the top of each,
scoop out a portion of the inside and
lay on a sieve to drain.
Brush the outside of the tomatoes
with liquid aspic jelly and leave them
until the latter is set.
* Season some whipped cream with
salt, paprika, tarragon vinegar, and a
dust of sugar. Add carefully some
cooked peas.
Place on ice for a short time, then
fill the tomatoes with the mixture.
Decorate with nasturtium leaves
and blocks of aspic jelly-New York
Press.


STUFFED MUSHROOMS.
Scrape out the inside of the caps,
chop the stems that are too long to
be left standing, and also the mush-
rooms that are too small to fill.
Mash with a potato masher and fill
into the mushrooms, which should
have been arranged in a buttered
earthen *baking dish, stems up. Then
cover with the glass bells that come
on purpose for holding in the delicate
aroma and Juices of the mushrooms,
or, lacking these, with paper and an
inverted pan. Cook on the back of
the stove or in an oven for about half
an hour, or until brown and tender.
They will cook In their own Juices.

are found in the auditory apparatus
These otoliths increase in size dur-
ing the ent re life of the fish, each
yoar adding two layers, a light-col
ored one formed In summer and 1
dark one formed in autumn and win-
ter. The alternate layers are sharp-
ly contrasted and very distinct, so
that there is no difficulty In count-
Ing them. The number of pairs of
layers is equal to the number of years
the fish has lived. By this method
Wallace has made an interesting
study of the distribution of fishes of
the plaice species over various sea
bottoms, according to age. In this
way the rapidity of growth of fishes
and the effect of fisheries on the pop.
ulagon of the sea can be determnluod.

provided with numbers indicating

cating the hours of the day, and a
third with ordinals indicating the
hours of the day and night. Each
tray Is divided into little compart-

The old Manor Hall is the pride of the city of Yonkers. The front part
was built In 1682 by Frederick Philipse, the first Lord of the Manor of
Philipsburg. It was completed by the addition of the back part In 1745.
The building remained In the possession of the Philipse family until 1779.
when because of the torylsm of the Frederick Philipse of that day-the
third Lord of the Manor-it was confiscated by an act of the Legislature of
New York. It was used by private families until 1868. Since 1872 it has
been the City Hall of Yonkers. The old structure has had the best of care

her co-inventor have devised an ap-
paratus which is very simple and
equally effective. This consists of a
drum, which resembles a huge spool,
and which is suspended from the win-
dow ledge, having a long straight
edge for engagement with the wall.
Around this drum one whole turn of
a cable is taken, one end of the cable
-the end near the window-having
a seat attached.- When the fire breaks
out the person in the room climbs out
u/er the window ledge, thrusts one
leg over the seat, and, grasping the
other end of the cable, lowers him-
self or herself gently to the ground.
The turn of the cable over the drum
prevents the rope from slipping and
letting the seat down except as the
slack is paid out.--Was.ingtt n Star.

sired to take it from one point to

Is clearly shown in the cut, which pre-
sents a bottom view of the sled, with
the runners folded back on the under
side of the seat board. The runners
are made of steel rods, which are,
clamped to the wooden top in a man-
ner that permits them to be easily
folded. When in upright position
the legs are hold by adjustable braces.'
A notable feature of the design used
in this construction Is the clear open.

Many people nowadays ask itf farm-
tag pays. Vely often it does. But
let m a sY that proftable farming is
as eamt a profeeslo and at timhnes as
mge& of a gamble as high finance.
Whea you lose hundreds of dollars on
a dry *esoon such as this has been
you oe to realise that. If you are
&la& $20 per on a high office stool,
move to the country If you can, for
a flat 10 not as good a place for hu-
man beings to live in. But next time
the boss has a grouch don't sass him
nla the fond belief that "'Mother Na-
'ture's bounty awaits but the cleaving
ploughshare's blade." She only does
that, hereabouts, In seed catalogues.
And that ploughshare cleaves pretty
dinged hard, too. If you do go to
farming, make It truck farming, near
a city, where you can sell the stuff
from door to door. What will you do
In winter? That's easy. 'Mend har-
ness or play cards on a barrel-head
down to 81's. If your wife kick at
the monotony, point out to her the
grandeur of the landscape's open
spaces. She can see a lot of them
while she makes rag carpet at the
kitchen window.-New York World.

PIPE DREAMS.

FOOD QUICTIOUN
Settled With Perfect Satisfaction by
a Dyspeptic.

It's not an easy matter to satisfy
all the members of the family at meal
time, as every housewife knows.
And when the husband has dyspep-
ala and can't eat the simplest ordi-
nary food without causing trouble.
the food question becomes dozably
annoyin.
An Illinois woman writes:
"My husband's health was poor, he
had no appetite for anything I could
get for him, it seemed.
"He was hardly able to work, was
taking medicine continually, and as
soon as he would feel better would
go to work again, only to give up In a
few weeks. He suffered severely with
stomach trouble.
"Tired of everything I had been
able to get for him to eat, one day
lseeag an advertisement about Grape-
Nuts, I got some and he tried it for
breakfast the next morning.
"We all thought it was pretty good,
although we had no idea of using It
regularly. But when my husband
came home at night he asked for
Grapo Nuts.
* "It was the same next day, and 1
had to -get It right along, because
whoa we would get to the table the
qmstona, 'Have you any Grape-Nuts?'
S &a regular thing. So I began to
ibuy t by the dosen pkgs.
"My husband's health began to im-
proie right along. I sometime felt
e sded when I'd make something I
,thug9 t be would like for a change,
7 still hear the same old question,
lave you Say Grape-Nuta?'

Foreigners are forever having
trouble with the English language. A
German, recently arrived, made ef-
forts with a good business deal. "If
the transaction goes through," he
was told, "you'll have all kinds of
money." Later he met the friend
who made the remark.
"Veil," said the German, "der thing
has fallen through.
"That's too bad," replied the friend.
"Too bad? Und you is sorry I make
a pile of money?"
"Oh, it went through all right?"
questioned the friend.
"Yah, so I said."
"Well, I'm glad of It. That's dif-
ferent."-New York Times.

Wheat.
Wheat is a plant, and whoever is
at all conversant with the machinery
of speculation knows what a plant
is. There are many kinds of plants,
variously successful in catching suck-
ers, but wheat Is about as sure as
any to land the game. Contrary to
what you sometimes hear, wheat
doesn't exhaust the soil. At all
events, these United States have
been cropped and cropped, with no
seeming diminution of the arrest.
Wheat may be planted any tlrie,
there being a delivery every month.
When wheat has served the main pur-
pose for which it is planted it Is by
no means thrown away, but goes to
feed the world.-Puck.

Pretty Customs In Brittany.
Plougastel is one of the most in.
teresting places In Brittany, for he*e
the peasants have preserved thefr
strange customs and costumes better
thon anywhere else n the countryd.
Several "pardons" are held here, the
principal one on Midsummer NEe.
This is a very picturesque ceremony,
accompanied by bonfires and otlhr
fetivitles. The children's fete is a
chaminng sight. Little Bretons, dcd

.0eIgreem an Cu%*ed.
A new member of Conorees from
one of the rural districts of Michigan
was ambitious to distinguish himself
by his oratory, and accordingly watch-
ed for a favorable opportunity. At
length an occasion presented Itself.
A motion was made In the House for
enforcing the execution of some stat-
ute. whereupon the orator in embryo
rose solemnly up. and. after giving
three loud hems. spoke as follows:
"Mr. Speaker, have we laws or have
we no laws? If we have not laws.
and they are not observed, to what
end are those laws made?"
So saying he sat down, his chest
heaving high with consclous conse-
quence. Instantly ('ox. the clown of
the House, with a twinkle in his eye.
rose and delivered his thoughts in
these words: "Mr. Speaker, did the
honorable gentleman who spoke last
speak to the purpose or not speak to
the purpose? If he did not speak to
the purpose, to what purpose did he
speak ?"
That particular orator never trou-
bled the House agaln.-St. Louls Re.

PAINT FAULTS


It tos a common occurrence nowa-
days to hear a man remark with dis-
gust: "It is impossible to have good
painting done these days; either the
paint tois not good or there are no good
painters." This, however, toIs not true.
There Is good paint, and there are
good painters. But the question is,
bringing them together.
One cannot expect a satisfactory
painting job without pure white lead.
There is a way to make sure you are
getting pure white lead without test-
ing it. See that the keg bears
National Lead Company's famous
Dutch Boy Painter trademark, which
is a positive guarantee of purity.
However, any one can test white lead.
National Lead Compaury, 1902 Trin-
ity Bldg., New York City, will send
you a lead tester and painter's outfit,
consisting of book of color schemes,
specifications, etc., upon request.
Too many men try to build a sky-
scraper on a one-story foundation.

The Strain Keep


fr


Up Appearances
By Orison Swett Marden.
SHERE are plenty of people, in all of our large cities, who do not
Tow themselves enough to eat, and practice all sorts of pinch-
ing economy at home for the sake of keeping up appearances i
society.
-What terrible Inconvenience, hardship, and suffering we en-
dure on account of other people's eyes and opinions! What slaves,
what fools we make of ourselves because of what other people
think! How we scheme and contrive to make them think we are other than we
really are.
It Is other people's eyes that are expensive. It is other people's eyes that
make us unhappy and discontented with our lot, that make us strain, and
struggle, and slave, in order to keep up false appearances.
The suit, the hat must be discarded, not because they are badly worn, but
because others will think It strange that we do not change them.
The effect of all-this false living, this constant practise of deception in
appearances, in our manner of living, our dress, is undermining the American
character, ruining our genuinenoss, making us superficial, unreal, false.
No man can really respect himself when he is conscious that he Is small
ing under false colors.
If you are wearing clothes and living in luxury which you cannot afford,
theen things label you all over with falsehood, .and are perpetual witnesses
against you. There is only one possible result upon the character of false-
hood, whether acted or spoken, and that is perpetual deterioration. It does
not matter whether you wear lie", tell lies, or act lies, the effect upon your
character is the same.

Poor Dickens.
Him Cookneylerm and Vulgarity Are
Exposed.
By Oliver Crarm.

Relentlessly


I N my opinion "Our Mutual Friend" is simply a piece of literary
patchwork. The plot is clumsy; the characterization is fltmay.
The very objectionable type of rascality, Rogue Riderhood, men-
tioned by Mr. I Ahtwood is a wretched caricature. But the same
remark applies to lilas Wegg. Instead of being a "colossal work
of genius," this book is the work of one of perhaps the least
artistic of alla writers of fiction. Contemporary novels may ap-
pear "episodic" and "incoherent" when compared with "Our Muatual friend"
to a mind Incapable of understanding what cohesion in a narrative means. In
reality George Meredith has rightly said that Peokens represents codokeylam
and vulgarity. The "vogue" of Dickens was etiely dte to the ignorance and
bad taste of his readers. He only knew the outside of things, as George Wlot
pointed out. His villains are impossibly bad; hid heroes are mawkishly "goody.
goody." There is not a single novel of his that can be properly called a work
of art. "David Copperfleld" is marred by the gratesqae figure of .MoawMber
ad the scarcely less ridiculous Detsy Trotwood. "BamSab Rudse" lit ldto
