cupied forty machines, which were
highly decorated, and all along the
route arrows were displayed, point
ing the way to Pistakec Bay, and the
members of his Booster's Club had
the time of their lives while at his

a liberal use of the schoolhouse by the
parents in holding their community
meetings. Fayette county is purely
rural w;th a population of 27,000 Ne
groes, 9,000 of whom are school age.
Hardeman County Training School,
14 miles from the Fayette County
Training School, was dedicated by a
party of speakers. County Superin
tendent M. L. Hardin, with other
white citizens, was present and in a
very pleasing address assured the col
ored people of the county that the
Board of Education stands ready to
lend a hand in making the schdol what
it should be. This building is of brick
and cost $20,000. The colored people,
by private supscription, contributed

ATHLETIC SPORTS ARE WARM
ING UP AT THE LINCOLN
UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYL
VANIA. Lincoln University, Sept 26.
Coach John A. Shelburn arrived at
Lincoln on September September 14,
and immediately began the work of
building up the Lincoln team, which
it is hoped will bring back some of
the prestige which it has enjoyed in
Fifteen men reported the first day,
and before the end of the week he had
thirty-six men drilling and perspiring.
The preliminary work has consisted
in instilling the very fundamentals t)f
the game. The men have manifctscd
a willingness and determination that
augers well for a good, conscientious
The men who composed the squad
last year have been a little slow in
returning, and most of the men who
have reported are new men. From
the material on hand it looks as if the
old men will have to show remarka
ble football knowledge and ability to
retain their places.
Carter, last year's center, will have
a hard fight on his hands to keep
from being displace'd by Bellinger, a
new man from Texas. Wilson, quar
terback for the last two years, has
five rivals for his place, the most
prominent of whom is McClain, an
inter-scholastic star from Jersey City.
Wilson may be sent to his old posi
tion at half-back, which is probably,
his logical position. Captain Laws
has entirely recovered from the in
juries he received last year, and looks
fit to lead his team to victory this
year Poindcxtcr, a substitute last
year, is showing good form Two of
the most promising men on the squad
arc Crudup, a former player on
"Rindgc .Tech," of Cambridge, Mass.,
and Howard from Jersey City.
The squad as a whole is rather
light, but gives evidence of being
very fast. Owing to the number of
men who arc candidates for the back
field. Captain Laws may be shifted
to the other end or tackle.
"Sam" Parr, who stood out so
prominently in the Howard game,
came out for the first time Friday.
His presence is always an inspiration
to the team, and any man who ex
pects to make a position in the back
field knows that he has to play won
derful football to displace "Sam."
The schedule for the season is as

Spread of Bathing In Europe.
Bathing came to Europe as one of
the good results of the Crusades. Th
Knights of the Cross found baths In
general use among the Sarccens, and
seeing what good thlDgs they were,
on returning from those wars took the
Initiative for their introduction. In
this they were highly successful first
In England and from that to other
countries. So popular did the bath be
come that It became customary to have
one before ceremonies such us mar
riage or knighthood, and the people
have been ever since learning the valoi
of keeping their skJns clean.
Few Insects Harmful to Man.
Relatively speaking, very few species
of Insects are harmful In any way to
man and his works. The injurious
species amount to less than 1 per cent
of the whole. On the other hand, a
great many species are beneficial to
mankind. Pollination of crops Ilka
f clover would be impossible without in-
eect visitations, and the same is true
of many garden flowers and Important
Salt and Dampness.
St.lt Is what Is caled "hygrosco
pic," that is, It eagerly absorbs mois
ture. In fact, both air and salt are
absorbents of moisture and It Is a
contest between them as to which
gets It Results depend on atmos
pheric conditions. Ordinary atmos
phere always contains a proportion
of moisture, and warm air is apt to
be more humid than cold, as it ab
sorbs and holds water vapor more
readily than cold air. Salt has such
affinity for moisture that under such
conditions it draws It from the air.
When the air becomes dry, the mois
ture Is given up by the salt which In
turn becomes dry as It returns the
moisture to the air.
"Crepuscular" Sun Rays.
The beams of light sometimes seen
radiating from the sun when not far
from the horizon are called "crepuscu
lar rays." They are due to rays of
light passing through breaks In the
clouds and made visible by dust or fine
drops of water In the air. Their ap
parent divergence Is an effect of per
spective. The phenomenon Is popularly
described as "the sun drawing water";
sailors speak of the "sun's backstays,"
while Homer wrote of the "rosy

Care of Geraniums.
Geraniums should be kept moist, but
should not be given too mach water
at a time. They need a sunny win
dow. The plants should be kept In a
fairly even temperature, and It should
be borne In mind that they must have
plenty of air, for they won't thrive In
a "stuffy" room. Light and sun are
necessary for all plants, and there Is
always more danger of getting too lit
tle than too much.
Indian Name of Quaint Old City.
The Indians called a strait "Kebec,
and tbe name was given to the site
of the present city of Quebec from
the peculiar configuration of the St
Lawrence river at that point for the.
river there grows narrow and from
Its deep waters rises the bold height
on which the ancient city stands. The
French-Canadian still pronounces the
name Kebec. ,
St Swithln Myth Disproved.
A record was kept from 1840 for
twenty years for the purpose of testing
the truth of the popular belief that If
rain fell on St Swlthln's day It would
rain for forty days after. The result
of this test shows that the greatest
number of rainy days bad occurred In
these two decades In years when St
Swlthln's day was dry.

The Indians of Guinna have a curl
aus system of numeration. They count
oy the hand and Its four fingers. Thus,
when they reach five. Instead of say
ing so, they call It a "hand." Six Is
therefore a "hand and first finger" ;
even, a "hand and second finRer." Ten
Is "two hands." But 2ty Instead of be
ing "four hands." Is a "man." Forty
Is "two men," and thus they go on by
twenties. Forty-six Is expressed as
"two men, a hand and first finger."
Engraving 6,000 Years Old.
An engraving approximately 6,000

of which survive. '

Regiment Proud of Long Service.
The Third Infantry, the oldest regi
ment of our army, which dates from
1784, has developed Its arms to show
Its early service In Mexico. One in
teresting device used by this regiment
la a baton crossed with an oldtlme
bayonet back of the shield. The ba
ton which figures prominently In the
regiment's history was made from the
flagstaff of the capltol of the City of
Mexico and was taken when the city
was captured. It Is still one of the
most highly prized possessions of the
Softest Known Wood.
Trees belonging to the genus Jacara
tia, growing In tropical America, are
remarkable for their soft wood. After
part of the bark Is cut away a machete
can be shoved to the center of the
trunk with ease. The wood, when
fresh, can be cut into blocks with a
knife, as one would cut up parsnips
or turnips. As the wood dries, .It

Another Theory of the Flood.
A new theory of the flood has been
discovered In South Africa. Hydro
graphers investigating the waterway
of Uganda have found Indications that
Lake Victoria and other central Af
rican lakes were at one time vast
inland seas, which a little excess of
rainfall would cause to overflow Into
the lands to the north. The discovery
of primitive stone Implements along
the old water levels prove these to
nave been within the "human" period.
Fundamental Business Principles.
From a purely coldblooded business
point of view, honesty Is the best pol
icy. To treat the other man as you
would have him treat you Is an equal
ly fundamental business principle.
This does not mean that you should
surrender your rights or neglect to
avail yourself of your opportunities.
It simply means that In the game of
business, the same rules of sportsman
ship should prevail as in a boxing bout
In a match of golf, or In a football
game. John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
Certain species of birds which In
