here at" ike election in' November.
Only Skinner's name appeared on the
official ballot, and he received 1.3S5
votes. Whitney's name was written
down on the ballot by 76 persons who
preferred to vote for him. Whitney
bases his contest upon the ground
that the law required filing of petition
of candidacy forty-five days before
election, whereas Skinner did not file
his petition until ten days before the
election, and that the street addresses
of persons signing the petition did not
appear. Therefore, Whitney contends
that Planner's votes were illegal, and
since'he was the only other person to
receive votes for the office, the certifi
cate of election should have been given,

That Sunday School Claw!
Wishing to become acquainted with
the methods of her predecessor, a
young woman who taught a Sunday
school class for the flrt time asked
the group of bright-faced six-year-olds
what the lesson had been the previous
Sunday: Silence prevailed for a mo
ment. Then a snub-nosed urchin
waved has hand frantically and when
granted permission to speak, answered:
"It was about burning the bugs in the
church." Conversation with the former
teacher afterwards revealed that the
lesson bad been "Burning Incense In

PROPER CARE FOR YOUR HATS
Velvet Headgear Needs Especial At
tentionEach Hat Should Have
Box of Its Own.
It Is not only the wear that a hat
receives that makes it lose its fresh
ness and shape. It is the way the hat
Is treated when It Is not in use that
has a good deal to do with this.
Velvet hats are so much in evidence
this season that the chances are you
have one or will have before many
weeks. These need particular care,
and will repay you the care you give
them. The old-fashioned way was to
have a piece of heavy black mourn
ing crepe with which to rub off the
dust from velvet, but a velvet brush
Is easier to handle. A heavy, coarse
brush should never be used on velvet.
The best time to brush dust from
velvet is after you have worn the hat,
unless It Is damp or spotted with rain.
Then you should not use a brush until
It has been thoroughly dried.
It is hard In limited quarters to give
your hats the right place to repose
when not in use, unless you are content
to get along with but one or two
bats a season. Ideally, each hat should
have a box of Its own, and even your
ordinary hats should be boxed when
not in use. Hats that have trimming
of the down-drooping variety should
not be laid flat In a box but should
rest on a little hat block anything.
In fact, that will raise the brim some
what from the bottom of the box.
A piece of china silk an old silk
handkerchief Is good Is useful In
caring for your hats. Quills should
be carefully wiped off with It and
ostrich feathers may be dusted gently.
Any trimming with dre finish or Jet
ornaments may be carefully dusted
with this silk.
St. 8wlthln Myth Disproved.
A record was kept from 1840 for
twenty yean t o 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
Bumber of rainy days had occurred la
these two decades in years whea St
Swlthln's day was dry.
Ancient Roman Empire.
The Roman empire during the reign
