I could be a soldier, brave, who'd face undauntedly the foe, or I could
dare the ocean wave nor tremble at the winds that blow. I'd gladly mount
an aeroplane and soar aloft in empty air and look with scorn and high dis-
dain on folk who feared to venture there.
I'd handle tons of dynamite and never thrill a single thrill, and, as a
fireman, with delight, I'd climb from 'blazing sill to sill. In auto races I
would run at peril of my life and limb, or face a robber with a gunfor tackle
tigers, fierce and grim. I .
O, I'm a very daring soul, and common dangers give me cheer, and,
taking matters as a while, there's very little that! fear, but ttfere are'bounds

BARBER MADE DISTINGUISHED
DUELLIST OF POOR TAILOR
Berlin, March 24. Profiting by the
well-known reverence displayed by
his- countrymen for high-sounding
titles and saber scars the latter the
proof positive of honor and personal
courage a German tailor's assist
ant named Hirschfield has victimized
the proprietors and guests in several
Berlin "pensions", to the extent of
thousands of dollars.
Hirschfield-found tailoring dull and
unprofitable, so, having hired a
Prince Albert coat and stolen a stu
dent's cap and college colors, he went
to a barber friend and' got him tojgive
him seven neat "saber cuts" with a
razor. Then, adopting the style of
Count Von Bodenstein, he, with his
scarred face and easy manners, had
no difficulty in passing himself off as
a distinguished student duellist.
His scars were so imposing that
other students did not venture to 'lest
his skill with the saber, but accepted
him at his own valuation, and their
inti'oductions enabled him to live a'
life of- pleasure and borrow thou
sands of dollars for several months
until the police started to look into
his claim to the title. He is now
awaiting trial here.
Break about a- pound; of maple
sugar into5 little pieces, mix- it with a
cup of milk and' put it on the fire.
This mixture should come to a boil
before a tablespoon of butter.. is
added. Cook, the whole until a little,
dropped in, cold water, will become
brittle. Take it from the fire and be
gin stirring at once until you notice it
beginning to granulate a little. Then
pour it into a greased pan which
should have been prepared before
hand. Mark into' squares of any
size wished and' lei it-cool.
