According to the News and Cour.
ier, enterprising Georgians are busy
on the problem of the wireless trans.
mission of booze.
Perhaps the whole trouble started
in Georgia, says the Spartanburg
Herald, when the late governor gave
that boozeless banquet just before
going out of office.
A practical joker in Pittsburg blew
red pepper into the atmosphere of a
crowded theater, and sneezed him elf
to death as a result. Occasiona ly
the innocent bystander gets reven e.
The wife of Capt. Ross L. 'Bdsh
U. S. A., now stationed Alcatraz.
Island, is suing him for divorce on
the ground that the only recreation
he permits himself or her is Bible
reading every night; and that she.
being a social person, cannot vo on
thus for the rest of her da) s. There
ere few such officers in the United
States army, happily for their wives.
Are there really any truly great
native Texans? Bailey is a Tennes
seean and Culberson was born in
Alabama. The editor of the Hous
ton Post, we believe, was born in
South Carolina, more's the pity.
Tillman also is a native of South
Carolina. We couldut help it.
[News and Courier.
Henry James says the American
girl is elusive. Henry should invite
one to an ice-cream feast this hot
weather, and get that foolish notion
out of his head.
The news columns of the papers
Friday annonioced that the members
of the Georgia legislature had gone
to the state insane asylum. Oue man
was moved to remark that they
ought to be confined there indefil
itely.
The D)uchess Vendome. a bister of
thie future kirg of Begium, is c3oming
te America to hunit hears in Colorado.
She is a great, sportswoman and has
done much hunting in the Tyrol and
.Black forest.
Recent careful, surveys on the
Isthmus of Panama prove that Gatun
Lake, the great storage reservoir
which will be formed by the building
of the Gatun dam near Colon, will
have an area of 125 square miles.
The former estimate was 110 square
miles. T1he result will be beneficial
to the canal, as the greater quantity
of water stored up will allow of fifty
six lockages a day, instead of only
twenty-six, the former eslimate.
"How changeable you mortals are,"~
exclaimed a Cold W ave?" "Why do
you think so?" queried a man, grate
fully baring his brow to its touch.
"I was here last April," continued
the Cold Wave, "und never got the
glad baud once."
The News and Courier is of the
opinion that "the dispensary busmness
in Charleston is picking up, the sales
In July exceeding the sales in June

of knowmng how the business of the

John Baecom, once president of the
Univeralty of Wisconsin, always had
a keen Insight into men, and for much
of iA life college students constituted
mank.'nd for him. Once when he was
a class oilcer the names of two men
were read by him as absent from
morning prayers. One of them, a pie
tist, stopped at his desk and said:
"Professor, ivhen the chapel bell was
ringing I was engaged in prayer and
did not hear it."
"You're not excused," responded
John, with contempt in his eye and
I in his voice.
I Then, calling back the other man,
r who was about at the door on his way -
t out of the room, he saiu to him:
"What's your excuse?"
"I haven't any, sir."
"You're excused.'
He used to have debates in his clasp.
I room. At one of them a student, whom
- Bascom subsequently -described as a
."florlating fellow," in the heat of his
- eloquence said, "I wish that I had
' the ability and the time to exhaust
this subject."
"You have the time," said Bascom.

"What number shall I draw on the

The boy replied, "Thirty-two."
The visitor drew the number back

"Is that right?" asked the visitor.
"Yes, sir; yes, sir," answered the bo7
in a timid way.
"What number shall I take now?" he
asked of another.
V The boy answered, "Sixty-two,"
whereupon the visitor drew the num
ber backward, as before-twenty-six.
"Is that right?" he asked.
"Yes, sir," replied the boy.
A long way back a bright eyed boy
held up a wavering hand.
"What number shall I draw for you?"
asked the visitor.
t The boy called out, "Forty-four!"
Then, when the visitor had drawn It,
he yelled out, "Now, if you are so
