Origin ef Potato Bugs.
Potatoes biased the way to the bugs,
which have proven our great and de

Colorado beetles and lived contentedly
on the sand bars of the plateau land
in that part of the country. The sand
bars, from a botanical standpoint, are
distantly related to potatoes and when
civilisation brought the potatoes to
the Colorado regions the bugs trans

PGWfi OF JOY RULES WORLD
Pala, Deelares Weman. Lecturer,
fAeald Never Be Resorted te in
Cefrestlfif IMmly WMraR.
A Vpsjas is lectoring In tha Bast
on 'The Influence of Joy." It Is also
an attack aa the fcaaaeace of pain,
which p&ranU so meh raeert to in
the management of children. She de
clares, according to the Ohio State
Journal, that pain should never be re
sorted eo te make children good, aad,
hence, she advises that aH spankings
and whlpphags should be eliminated.
There is nothing la pain to recon
struct a child. Joy is the only medium
that should be need. Make a child
happy. Instead of sad, is the gospel
of child training. The. power that
lived, moved and rated the world, she
said, was the power of joj; and this
was the influence the parent should,
use in training the child. This is not
the way of parents. The rule is to
whip the child to make him good. It
cannot result that way, A kind word
and a gentle asoctetn are far more
powerful than a rod or any other
saetBod for predaciag sorrow er pale.
The other day we heard a mother
shout to a little 'boy; TH skin you

worse boy ont of a bad one.
The mHd power wins" is an eM
adage and every parent abesid take
It to heart.

fHINGS THAT WE LAUGH AT
Inanlraate Objects, Because ef
elation, Used by CsmeeMsas to
Cause People te Smile.
The Intrinsic humor- possessed by
inanimate objects Is a study In itself.
A person has but to lift up a string
ef sausages te nsnke us smile. There
must be some curious association ef
Ideas, writes Rob Wagner In the Sat
urday Evening Post, that has always
made of sausages a favorite prep for
the comedian. The popularity of spag
hetti us lauch provoker probably
lies in the great difficulty of eating It
with dignity. Because of some strange
significance, lawnmourers and baby car
riagefl are potential of much mirth.
Inanimate objects ore not the only
facetious things In life; among the
fruits and vegetables we find are com
edians. We have a complete flora and
fauna of comedy that every director
Is supposed to know. The edible props"
of pleasantry, are the cabbage, prone
and ealop ; while among the animals,
the jackass and the mule get the long
est laughs, though I believe the goat
produces the strongest.
0 We had a stspid director who
thought because a Shetland pony of
fered such a tremendous contrast to
a mule he could hitch the two to
gether and get' a lot ef laughs. It cost
a bunch of money to convince this
unanolytlcal chump that people regard
these diminutive horses much as they
do beautiful children; they are too
sweet and cqte to be subjected te the
slightest Indignity. Sheer beauty is
