this the prettiest spot in Fulton
county. As the lots are large and
level, and in a most picturesque
location, there Is no reason why
th-y should not make it a beauty.
The opening of this property Is a
good thing for the town, owing to
the scarcity of building lots and the
prevailing high prices. It enables
a number of people to build homes
who would otherwise not have them.
The 33 lots will afford ample room

To three of the large fashionable
women's clubs of Chicago the stork
In the past year has paid one visit,
and only one. The West End Wo
men's club, with a membership of
360, boasts of only one "club baby"
for the year, and the same is true of
the Chicago Culture club with 350
members, and the Social Economics
club, a South Side organization,
whose members number 125. This
startling commentary on the birth
rate among fashionable women was
disclosed following the receipt of a
dispatch from Omaha stating tbat of
the 400 members of the Omaha
Woman's club, only one had become
a mother during the last year.

Under the contract recently signed
by the secretary of the navy, the
tower for the wireless telegraph
station to be erected in Washington
is to be 650 feet high. This tower
will be of concrete, 50 feet in
diameter at the base and eight feet
at the top. The shaft will be hol
low and will carry within it the
wires required for flashing messages
3,000 miles to ships at sea. There
will be no elevator but a staircase
will offer the opportunity to those
who desire to climb to the top.
The site for the tower has not yet
been decided on, but it is to be on
low ground and at some distance
from Washington monument, in or
der that it may not detract in any
way from the architectual value of
that structure. The current will be

A Business Parable.
Once a farmer had 1,800 bushels
of wheat, which he sold, not to a
single grain merchant, but to 1.80Q
different dealers, a bushel each. A
few of them paid In cash, but far the
greater number said it was not con
venient then ; they would pay later.
A few months passed, and the man's
banV account ran low. "How is
this?" he said. "My 1,800 bushels
of grain should have kept me in af
fluence until another crop is raised,
but I have patted with the grain and
have instead only a vast number of
accounts, so small and scattered that
I cannot get around and collect fast
enough to pay expenses." So he
posted up a public notice and asked
all those who owed him to pay quick
ly. But few came. The rest said r
"Mine is onlv a small matter, and I
will go and pay some of these
days," torgetting that, though each
account was very small, when all
was put together thev meant a laree
sum to the man. Thlnes went on
thus. The man got to feelin? so
badly that he fell out of bed and
awoke, and, running to hlsgrainery,
found that his 1,800 bushels of jjrain
were still safe there. He had only
been dreaming. Moral The next
day the man went to the publisher of
his paper and said : "Here, sir, is
the pay for your paper, and when
next's subscription is due you can
depend on me to oav nromnllv. I
stood in the position of an editor last
night, and L know how he reels to
