A Joh Chest.. '.
' Four or five thousand seal's ago, or
whenever it wascJoash, one of the
klngrs of Judah, took a chest, as the
records read and bored a hole in the
lid of It, and get it beside the altar, end
there received all the money that the
people brought into the. house ot the

box of which, we can Just now think,
end the people oE the Forty-ninth Ave
nue Methodist church, in Chicago, have
Adopted the "Joesh chest" as a means
of raising money for relislous uses.
The men of the1 congregation are ' to
give up cigars for a month, to stop
buying gloves, and the women are to
cut out buns from the morning meal,
to walk instead of ride on the street
cars, and to save the money by these
and various other economies to place it
in the chest. The scheme worked very
we!l the other day, when $500 was de
posited In the 'Josh chest." We should
be surprised, however, if a searching
examination would not disclose the fact
that the men df this congregation art)
not spending as much money for cigars
now as they did formerly, but the re-
suit has so far been very encouraging,
and the "Joash chest" ought to be
adopted generally in ail the religious
congregations throughout the country.

Uncle Horace Hopes.
TTriole Horace Johnson of Middle
llatldam issued his December weather
prediction on the 3d, and this is it:
"From tho 3d to the 6th there will be
a local disturbance of little note. From
the 10th to the 14th there will be a
general disturbance; winter will be
upon us. I hope we may have rain.
Water is very scarce for the season."
: Uncle Horace is combining sagacity
with his projihecy to an unwonted de
gree. Possiblv there were local dis
turbances in Middle Haddam from the
3d to the. 6th, but they must have been
intensely local no town outside of
Haddam had 'em. but that may be no
fault of Uncle Horace's. As for the
general disturbance from the 10th to
the 14th, it may come. If it bring
snow or if it bring rain, 'twill build up
the water -supply once again. And
that's what we need, more than kite
The most significant feature of Un
clo Horace's "prediction" is this: "I
hope we may have rain.1' A rational
and seasonable hope, truly, but hope
isn't propehcy. The shortest sighted
of us may hope for rain, but may not
be able to foresee or foretell it. And
it Uncle Horace Is goning to change
his system and give us his hopes in'
stead of weather signals, we may as
well stick to the goosebone. Never
theless, with Uncle Horace, we also
hope we may have rain, and have it
good and plenty. Hartford Post.

MADE POLITICAL WATCHERS
GOSSIP AT LIVELY RATE.
Prominent Factors in . Ohio Politice
Gather at White House at Personal
Guests of the President,
Washington, Dec. 8. An interesting
gathering of prominent factors in Ohio
politics as the personal guests of the
president at the White House today
set political watchers to gossiping at
a lively rate, although none of those
directly 'interested would admit that
their coming1 together at the White
House had any significance whatso
ever. Former Governor Herrlck of
Ohio and Charles P. Taft of Cincinnati,
the president's brother, are stopping at
the White House. This in itself was
sufficient to indicate to many that
politics might have at least a small
place in their discussions with the
president.- When Arthur I. Vorys went
to the White House for luncheon with
the others and remained there in con
ference until late in the afternoon it
was immediately assumed that Ohio
political affairs of an important nature
were surely being considered.
C. P. Taft said, however, that his
visit was but one of many ha hoped to
pay to his big brother during the lat
ter's term of office. Governor Herrlck
vowed that his visit was of a purely
personal character, and Mr. Vorys fur
ther explained that until he arrived
here he did not know that either Mr.
Taft or Governor Herrlck was in the
city. His Invitation to luncheon, he
said, dated only from the moment early
toitay when he asked an audience of
the president. Mr. Vorys was Presi
dent Taft'e chief of staff during the
campaign of last fall. He was for
several months in chargn. of the cam
paign In Ohio, and at one time it was
rumored that he was to become na
tional chairman of the party.
Gossip as to today's conference turn
ed largely upon the possibility of ro
1ng over available material in Ohio
for a candidate to oppose Governor
Harmon for the governorship next fall.
It Is supposed here to be taken for
granted by the republican leaders in
Ohio that Governor Harmon will be re
nominated and it is also conceded by
them that If he should he elected for a
second term he will be a formidable
factor in the presidential race In 1912.
The Ohio leaders even regardles ot the
presidential cainpa!n do not relish the
Idea of liming the governorship to the
democrats twice in succession, and are
anxious that the strongest possible
man shall be put up against Governor
Harmon next fall.
Since the appointment of Henry A.
Williams as a national bank examiner
the republican organization In Ohio has
been without a state chairman, and
this was another subject which may
have had the attention of the White
HoiiBe conference today.

expose danger and record the means, of advancing health. .The day for poisoning innocent children through greed or ignorance ought to end. To
