ance and invites and oncourages
law-breaking'--- Maine, whose
motto is, "I direct."
Under her "prohibition law"
---strange misnomer in this in
stancel---Maine has a state li
quor agent, who disburses intox
icants to local agents in such
cities and towns as choose to ap
point them under the restric
tions of the statutes; and these
city and town agents sell from
their stocks for "nedicinAl pur
poses"- only, the pfofits being
turned into the public treasur
1es. The annual report of the
state agent, just submitted,
shows that during the year 1907
he "handled" liquors the 16 sub
agencies to the aggregate value
of $110,877.49, the city of Lewis
ton on the Androscoggin being
the banner agency for the year.
Lewistonites "took- their medi
cine" to the tune of $28,552, the
distribution of the prescriptions
being as follows:
"Two thousand six hundred
and forty-seven and forty-one
one hundredths gallons of whis
ky in bulk; 182.01 gallons of
brandy; 682.92 gallons of gin;
1,632.55 gallons of alcohol; 1,192.
78 gallons of runi; 305 galloifs f
wine; 98 1-2 gallons of cherry
rum; 477 dozen quarts of whis
ky; 27,11-12 dozen quarts of
brandy; 81 dozen quarts of gin;
18 dozen quarts of champagne;
198 dozen quarts of porter; 1,012
dozen quarts of ale; Itwo doz,
qts. rum; 40 doz. qts. of wine,
and 384 dozen quarts of beer."
It will at once be noted that
the ailment in Lewiston calling
for liquor prescriptions as the
necessary medicine is, presum
ably, that disorder commonly
called a "chronic thirst"---else
why should the dispensary's
business be so largely in whisky
and rum and ale, while wines
figure so inconspicuously? And
if the city mdnaged to dispose
in one year of $28,000 worth of
supposedly pure intoxicants at
fair market prices, who will
dare compute the revenues from
the illegal traffic there in the
cheaper liquors---the vilehealth
impairing, crime - compelling,
brain-destroying stuff dispensed
at the speak-easies and the
kitchen-bars and from myrlads

Tendernees of the Hanging Judge.
Mr. Jnnstce -Hawkins' tenderness for
women prisoners was well known. lie
admitted it. and he had a great dislike
of sentoncing these poor creatums .to
death who had been recommended to
mercy and would probably be repriev
ed. On one such occasion the sheriff
asked if he was not going to put on
the black eap.
"No." he answered. "1 am not. I do
not intend the poor creature to be
hanged, and I am not going to frighten
her to death."
Addressing her by name, he said:
"Don't pay any attention to what I
am going to yead. No harm will be
done to you. .1 am sure you did not
know in your great trouble and sorrow

Hungry lobsters In their natural
state seldom refuse fish of any kind,
whether dead or alive. The favorite
bait with fishermen Is fresh or stale
herring, but even shark meat is used
at a pinch. Lobsters also eat small
crabs, sea urchins and mussels. In
deed. there are few forms of marine
life suitable for food which they re
-fuse. Lobs,ters sometimes capture fish
alive, striking them . with the smaller
of their two great claws, which for
this reason fishermen call the "quick"
or "fish" claw, but they will live for a
long time. especially when confined
without taking any food. If you tether
the lobster by the large claws. you will
find that, like the muskrat. he will go
off some fine morning, leaving only his
legs in the trap, for this anImal has
the remarkable power of "shooting a
claw," or amputating its limbs. and,

There is good reason to believe that
the magnifying power of transparent
media with convex surfaces was very
early known. A con vex lens of rock
crystal was found by Layard among
the ruins of the palace of Nimtrud.
And it is pretty certain that after the
invention of glass hollow spheres
blown of that material were commnonly
used as magnifiers. The perfection of
gem cutting shown in ancient gems,
especially in those of very minute
siue, could not have been attained
without the use of such aids to the
eye, and-tbere can be little doubt that
the artifiers who could execute those
wonderful works could also shape and
'polish the magulfiers best suited- for
their own or others' use.New York
