An Odd Proposal.
Recently the Topoka Mail and
"Breeze offered a prize for the oddest
instance of "popping the question."
The prize was won by Miss Fanny B.
Brevard, of Abilene. She locates her
Story in a western Kansas settlement.
A large family lived in a very small
house. In one corner of the single
room the old folks had their bed, and
above it was a swinging bed attached
to the rafters that was occupied by
the boys. Miss Brevard completes
the story as follows:
"On this particular evening a neigh
bor's fcirl, who was also the oldest
boy's sweetheart, was there visiting
the girls, and she stayed all night
with them. With games and songs
and lots of laughing atid talking the
evening eoon passed and bedtime
"Miss .Jessie being their company
the girls gave her the frout of the
bed and there was one small girl
who slept with the older girls ami
"The boys went to bed above, and,
of course the oldest slept on the frout
side. Soon all were quiet, and tho
anxious lover, supposing all, or near
ly all, in slumber, stuck his head
out over bis berth: 'Jessie, arc you
" 'No,' was the whispered answer.
" 'Will you be mad, Jessie, if I ask
"Jessie, guessing what he wanted
to say, answered again, telling him to
be quiet, for Tillie, his little sister,
"But the anxious lover didn't hear,
and not waiting to find out whether
bis lady love would be mad or not,
asked: 'Will you marry mc?'
"And fearing that ho would awake
all the house if not assured, Jessie
answered: 'Yes,' even if some litllo
ears wero listening."

Wells And Springs.
Springs nre fouut&ins or streams of
water flowing out of the earth and fed
by rain on high lands. The source of
a spring or well is often far distant
from where the water rises to the sur
ace. The greater part of the rain that
falls sinks iuto the ground and appa
rently disappears, while some of it
flows into rivers "r streams and works
its way to the sea. The water that
sinks into the ground filters through
the soil und porous rock, until it comes
to a hard rock through which it cannot
force its way. Thus hindered, it ac
cumulates iu a porous bed, from which,
by a tedious and vouodabout route, it
Bods its way to a well or spring at the
surface. The water of springs often
fl<?ws through underground channels,
which are too deep to be affected by
changes of temperature or by the sea
sons, and keeps at about the average
temperature of the locality. When it
comes from a deeper source it is some
times very hot. These are eaiied hot
or thermal springs.
Wells are holes dug in the ground
below the water level, and are supplkd
by underground water.
Wells and springs are called living
water because they spring, or flow, and
the water is different from cistern
water, which is dead, or stagnant.
The making of wells is an ancient
industry. The average depth varies
according to the water level in the lo
cality in which the wells are sunk.
Artesian wells, which received their
name from the old French province
of Artois, aro sunk to a depth of 200
feet in the Sahara Desert, while near
Paris one was bored to a depth of
1923 fcot. This well throws up a con
tinuous stream of water at the rate of
over five millions gallons a day.
Evory spring contains a chemical
solution of mineral, the nature of the
mineral depending upon the composi
tion of the rooks through which the
water has worked its way.
Springs and wells in Bible lands are
not bo numerous as in this country,
and in a time of drought they frequent
ly disappear, owing to lack of forests
and the hardness of the rock.
Wator is necessary to lifo and the
abundanoe or scarcity of water, and its
quality effect poeple in a marked de

where all of the water is muddy and
sluggish, cannot receive from it the

Made Successful Flight.
Los Angoles, Cal., Jan. 29.?Hoy

oessful flight in Capt. Baldwin's air

round Cauby,so it often happened that
his services were required in families
of which ho knew little more than the
name of the person on whose behalf
he was to officiate. i
One day he was summoned to a
lonely farm to perform the burial ser
vice. On arriving there after some
vicissitudes Le wan met by a forlorn
looking man who was evidently in
charge of a'fairs.
' Are mere relatives left whom I

"and is there any special point of

Age of a Horse I
At public nales ooc aces so pjany
old horses sold for youug ones that he i
who cao toll their age feels no litilo
sympathy for a neighbor who buys a
fourteen-year-old and pays a six-year
old price for it. Nearly every one can
',ell a very old horse from a very youug
ooc. Frequently one t"?es a elsek, fat,
high lifod animal passing from general
appearance for a five or six year old
that is fully twice as old.
The lower friot teeth, if healthy
and natural, are practically au accu
rate guide, say s the Baltimore Sun. A
yearling has very short teeth, with
deep cups in the ceuter, the two cud
ones being shorter than the others.
A two-year-old lias nhort teeth, with
comparatively shallow cups.
A three year-old has two long teeth
iu the center, with two s'iorl or "coll"
teeth on each .-side.
A four year old has four long teeth,
with ooc short one on either side.
A five-year-old has six long teeth,
with deep cups in centers.
A seven year-old has the center
teeth worn nearly smooth, cups of sec
ond pair shallow.
An eight-year old has the second
pair worn nearly smooth.
A ten-year-old is commonly spoken
of as a "smooth mouthed" horse"?i.
e. no oups.- As the animal grows
older the teeth become worn in pro
portion and the ooroers or the end
teeth become rounded. .
To tell the age with any degree of
accuracy beyond twelve requires much
experience and the examination of
many sets of teetb.

Are Confederate Bonds Good?
Periodically some unsophisticated
Englishman rises to remark thai it i?
high time the government of tho United
States should take steps to bring
about the payment of the bonds of the
Southern Confederacy. A correspon
dent of the London Finaccial. News
directs attootion to the highly inter
esting fact that "within 100 yards off
the Mansion House" in the British
metropolis are deposited over $200,
000,000 of these bonds. He eagerly
observes that the Southern States are
prevented from paying them by . act
of congress; that the anger which
prompted the destruction if the cot-,
too deposited as seourity for these
bends and ibo passage of an aot ren
deriug reparation to the bond holders
illegal, should have been appeased by
this time. Therefore it is puggettted
that tho United States should now
permit the Sojuih "to do what it can
toward an amicable settlement of the
debt." These, it should be remember
ed, are not the repudiated bonds of
the Reconstruction period, but old
Confederate bonds, which the South
would surely have redeemed had the
fortunes of war beep on the side of
Dixie. There is not the remotest pos
sibility that they will ever bavfr any
value except to curiosity hunters.
Since the war there has been some
speculation in these aeouii.iea, but,,
as oar London contemporary, the-.
Financial News, says: "A person who
bought chances for a repayment of
these bonds at a cent per dollar would
bo guilty of a rash, hazardous specula
tion within the meaning of tho act
forbidding the taking of such chanoea."
The Confederate bond was born in?
honor; the Reconstruction bond was
born in dishonor. Neither is worth
the paper on which it was printed as
an investment; but there will, pec
haps always be unsophisticated per
sons to believe that one day both will
be quoted on tho London and New*
York stock exchanges.
