NECKTIE HALTED A ROMANCE
Lovers Who Had Been Apart for
Forty Years Made Up When Man
Wors Woman'? Present.
Forty years ago John Kramona and
Charity Thmnons of Bishopvllle, Del.,
were twenty years old aud sweet
hearts. With her own hands Miss
Timmons made a necktie as a gift for
her young gallant Tho evening of
Ute day he received lt Emulous put it
on. ile didn't like tho colors and re
As usual, he visited Miss Timmons
that evening, according to a Selby
villo (Del.) dispatch to the Philadel
phia Ledger. It was a nico summer
night. Tho moon revealed that he
was not wearing love's token and Miss
Timmons demanded tho reason.
"It's too loud," replied the youth.
"Do you mean you will never wear
lt? Then you don't love mo," sobbed
tho girl, ami she went Into tho house.
That apparently was the end of the
romance. Einiuons went to Bo* timid,
Ore., and prospered. As tho owner of
n big department store in tho far
Northwestern city, be returned to
Blshopvillo Inst Christmas for a visit.
It was Inevitable that ho should
meet his form.Gr sweetheart In thc vil
lage. Soon each learned that the old
love would not die ; that each had con
sidered the other the only mato and
that neither lind married.
Of course, Fumions proposed. Miss
Timmons did not refuse bim, but she
bought a tlc as nearly like tho one
that started till thc trouble as she
could find. 1 lien, when he wore lt
without llinchlng, she coyly murmured
"yes." And so they were married tho
PREPARING TURF FOR FUEL
New Method, Said to Have Originated
in Russia, May Result in Reliev
A new method of drying turf to re
lieve the serious fuel shortage In Fin
land has ucea put In operation in vari
ous Scandinavian countries. The new
method was invented by engineers
working under orders from the Rus
sian soviet government, to lind a more
labor-saving method of preparing turf
as fuel for the great central power sta
tion near Moscow, the process being
made known In Finland through an es
caping engineer. The fundamental
principle of the process ls quite sim
ple. The raw turf In the swamp, by a
powerful Jet of water under a pressure
of 20 atmospheres, ls freed from all
old roots and changed to thin mud.
This ls pumped out on a drying field
and spread In layers. When sufficient
ly dry lt ls cut Into bricks of uniform
size hy means of a tractor. The turf
pump ls constructed Uko an ordinary
water turbine, Is reversible with aid of
electric motor, ls equipped with a cut
ting apparatus which completes the
work of thc water Jet, and can he
raised or lowered as the surface of tho
mud varies. The entire equipment ls
mounted on n enr which cnn he pushed
forward or backward on rails along the
line of work.-Scientific American.
Convicted by the Bible.
Law founded on the Bible is good
enough for Mayor Gilmore of Morgan
town, W. Va.
A local man charged with not hav
ing the tall light burning on his auto
mobile was arraigned boforo tho may
or, who assessed a fine of $3.
The accused protested, said lt was
a poor low under which ho was fined
and that he did not think it would hold
water In court'.
The mayor declared any law found
ed on the Bible was good enough for
him. The defendant said be couldn't
see where n tall light had anything to
do with the hilde. The mayor looked
pityingly at the accused, and sold:
"Do you remember the tale about
the ten virgins, five of whom had lights
and five of whom didn't? Well, If you
do, you will remember that the Lord
wouldn't have anything to do with the
Ave without lights, and neither will

Few parks in the world aro ns
beautiful as Schoonbrunn. Few pal
aces have given greater pleasure to
their royal hosts than tho great edi
fice that rises a one end of tho park.
Yet Schoonbrunn has its tragedies
as well as its gayeties. Emperors
have been born thore and risen to
glory-but emperors also have died
there, embittered hy harsh defeat.
Napoleon, who married Mario Lou
ise of Hapsburg, made the palace
his headquarters in 1805 and 1809.
Thore are many mementoes of him
still preserved in its multitude of
rooms. In 1809 death sought him
out in tho garden before the palace
-but failed to take him.
After the defeat of Waterloo,when
Louis XVIII was mado king of
France and Napoleon was sont Into
exile, the king of Homo and Mario
Louise, his mother, returned to tho
palace at Schoonbrunn. A fow years
later the king of Homo, who had
boen made the Duke of Reichst?dt,
died in the very room that Napoleon
his father had used in happier days.
Monoval, Napoleon's secretary, ac
companied Marie Louise and her son
to Vienna. Ho remained with thom
for some time. On the eve of lils de
parture to Join the exiled monarch
he sought the young son. Ho found
him surrounded by the mon of tho
Austrian court. Monoval asked him
in their presence if he had a message
for his father.
Tho king of Romo silently with
drew into tho embrazare of a win
dow. Monoval followed him, bond
ing toward him to hld him farewell.
'And the heir to Napoleon, with a
touching expression, said In a low
"M. Meneval, you will tell him
that 1 still love bim dearly."
A fev. years later thc young duke
of Reichst?dt died. Ho ts buried tn
tho palace crypt. His room has nover
been slept in since.
