Parker of Cameron county, "so that
from that time until the death of the i
ram not long ago no bear had ven

"A monstrous big bear had been for
sometime devoting himself to thinning
out the Morely sheep flock, and after
he had killed three of the sheep the
hired man was detailed to stand
guard over the pasture, armed with a
double-barreled shotgun loaded heav
ily with buckshot and with orders to
give Bruin both Jarrels the instant he
stuck his nose in among the sheep.
On the forenoon of the fourth day, the
confident guardian of the flock was
startled to see the bear scramble over
the stone wall only a few feet from
where he was standing sentinel. Bruin
put forward such a ferocious front
that the hired man dropped the gun,
took the wall at one leap and ran with
news of the bear's new invasion to
"Farmer Morely hastened to the pas
ture lot. All the sheep had fled to a
far corner of the field, except the
big black ram.
"Without delay Farmer Morely
picked up the gun, and as- he did so
he saw in the edge of the brush on
the outside of the field another bear
standing there as If taking note of
what might happen in the pasiure be

he saw that the bear at the edge of

feet as if to get a better view of the
battle, and the farmer says that as- f

eorgia Jokers Treat a Comrade to
an Experience Similar to That
Young Harris, Ga.-Bart Brown of
um Log, recently emerged from the
tnusual experience of being sewed up
!x hours in a mule's carcass.
Brown and several companions were
vending their way homeward down
he country road. The "going" was
oo heavy for Brown. He collapsed by*
he roadside, near the carcass of "old
iumpback," a mule that had carried
he mail to and from Brasstown for
nany years, but died several hours be
ore Brown and his companions came
Brown's companions stowed him
tway clumsily in the mule's carcass,
titching up the hide with strings so
he man inside could get air. The
leepng man finally awoke' and be
~an to scream. Several people pass
ng along the road heard the screams,
nade sure that they came from the
sody of an apparently dead mule, and
hen ran for their lives. Finally two

Men Doomed to Freeze.
Washington.-Men will freeze to

Niley, who forsook the subject of

Doctor Wiley said he believed the
~arth was slowly cooling, and that the
eople of the distant future must
reeze, though he declared that for "a

vould not suffer from lack of food or

MOTHERS OF THEN AND NOW
Conditions Are Only Different, No
Matter What Sentimental
* Writers May Assert.
The "popular" writer who bewails
what he assumes to be the' fact that
the "old-fashioned" mother is no more
is liable to defeat his own purpose if
that be inculcating in children the
highest possible regard for their pa
rents. It is a danger which even the
quantitative theory of literature or
space rates cannqt justify.
The mother of the past, of course,
was different from the mother of the
present, as different on the whole as
the conditions of life then and now,
but since her daughter is the mother
of the present there must be some
points of similarity. All the good in
our mothers and grandmothers cer
tainly could not have vaniihed. It
will be paying scant tribute- to those
dear, good women who have laid down
their precepts and examples and
passed on to say so. And, of course;
this writer does not mean to do that,
yet he comes very near doing what het
does not intend.
The fallacy of the whole sentimen
tal notjon that because things and
people are not like they used to be
they are not as good, lies in the pat
ent fact that they cannot be alike, and
if they were it would simply be be

SKIN TORTURED BABIES
SLEEP AND MOTHERS REST
A warm bath with Cuticura Soap,
followed by a gentle anointing with
Cuticura ointment, is generally suffi
cient to afford immediate comfort in
the most distressing forms of itching,
burning and scaly eczemas, rashes, ir
ritations and inflammations of in
fants and children, permit sleep for
child and rest for parent, and point to
permanent relief, when other methods
fail. Peace falls upon distracted
households when these pure, sweet

much 'for skin sufferers, from infancy

A Lesson for Diplomats.
Elihu Root, at /the luncheon In
Providence preceding the dedication
of the John Hay Memorial library at
Brown university, said of John Hay:
"His diplomacy was gracious, and
it was prudent as well. I remember
in an argument about a certain inter
national complication, how very
warmly and aptly he once insisted on
"It was the Christmas season, and
he said that we might learn a lesson
from a little girl who was naughty in
the early part of December.
"'Bear me,' her mother said, 'if
you're going to be naughty I'm very
much afraid Santa Claus won't bring
you any presents.'
"The little girl frowned.
"*'Well,' she whispered, 'you needn't
say it so near the chimney.' "
Certain littl'e suggestions are always
to be followed when planning the diet
of the little ones. To keep healthy
little stomachs in the nursery never
serve hot stewed fruit to the children.
Plenty of stewed* fruit and baked ap
ples they should eat, but they must
invariably be cooked the day before
and dished up cold. The nursery po
tatoes should always be baked or
boiled in their jackets. Stewed and
fried potatoes or potatoes boiled with
out their skins supply starch, with a
loss of all the wholesome potash salts
that the skin gives out during the
process of cooking into the white part
of the vegetable.

The Shadow of Science.
It Is bard to believe that a shadow
is probably the origin of all astronom
ical, geometrical and geographical
science. The first man who fixed his
staff perpendicularly In the ground
and measured its shadow was the
earliest computer of time, and the
Arab of today who plants his spear in
the sand and marks where the shadow
falls is his direct descendant It is
from the shadow of a gnomon that
the early Egyptians told the length
of the year. It Is from the shadow of
a gnomon that the Inhabitants of Up
per Egypt still measure the hours of
work for a- water wheel. In this case
the gnomon is a lhurra stalk support

shine a shadow was the primitive
chronometer. It was also the primi
tive foot rule.
