The Grand Rapids Independent
has the following to say relative to
the imposing of the death penalty
on Munn and Mathieson and the
setting of the dates by the governor
for the executions-
"Governor Johnson is loath,
according to press reports, to set a
date for the execution of the Bel
trami county murderers. It the
governor only knew what a wide
spread effect for good the executions
would have in this north country,
he would hesitate not a minute, but
hasten the date, that justice would
not have a chance to miscarry. Th
governor's contention that capital
punishment is a relic of barbaric
ages may be all right, alright, but
the same might be said about shoot
ing a fellow man in cold blood, and
looks to us as though something
more than a year or two or three in
prison and then a pardon ought to
be done to put a stop to the
extremely careless use of life-des

Wit and humor are such elemental,
fundamental things that it has
ways been found difficult to analyze'
them. Upon some points, however,
those who h.rve essayed this puzzling
task agree, for they all hold that wit
is an intellectual, humor an emotional,
quality that wit is a perception of re
semblance and humor a perception of
contrast, of discrepancy, of incongru
ity. The incongruity Is that which
arises between the ideal and the fact,
between theory and practice, between
promise and performance, and perhaps
it might be added that it is always or
almost always amoral incongruity. In
the case both of wit and humor there
is also a pleasurable surpilse, a gentle
shock which accompanies our percep
tion of the hitherto unsuspected re
semblance or incongruity. A New
England farmer was once describing
In the presence of a very humane per
son the great age and debility of a
horse that he formerly owned and
used. "You ought to have killed him,"
interrupted the humane person indig

Paris went off to Dover by night,
caught the mail packet, posted to Pap
is and back to Calais, and remembered
he had a horse racing at Newmarket
He chartered a fishing boat bound for
the eastern counties, just got to New
market in time for the race, took the
post back to London and stopped on
the way to dine In the middle of the
port and dice after dinner he was
caught by a special messenger who had
been tearing over half of England iu
search of him and reminded that he
had to move to bi ing in a marriage bill
in the house of commons He rushed
to the stables, reached the house in
time to make a brilliant speech in re
ply to North and Burke and defeated
North on a division by a single vote.
The Bee's Feet.
Naturalists say that the feet of the
common working bee exhibit the curi
ous combination of a basket, a brush
and a pair of pinchers. The brush, the
hairs of which are arranged in sym
metrical rows, is seen only with a high
grade microscope. With this brush of
fairy delicacy the bee brushes its vel
vet robe to remove the pollen dust with
which it becomes loaded while suck
ing up the nectar of flowers. Another
delicate apparatus is the spoon shaped
appendage that receives the gleanings
that the bee wishes to carry to theof
hive. Finally, by opening the brush
and the basket by means of a neat lit
tle hinge, the two become a pair of
pinchers, which render important serv
ice in constructing the cells for theI
reception of the honey.

A Hideous Dream.
I had a horiible dieam a fow nights

nothing dreadful in that, of course.

Including lady novelist of great
fame The lady wrote:

I placed it at the head of the col

there myself, feeling pleased. Ne\t
morning when I opened my copy of
religious weekly I found that three
letters had been diopped from the lady

consternation, now read as follows:

Trades That Kill.
One of the most dangerous of trades,
according to the Pilgnm, "is the cover
ing of toy animals with skin, chamois
leather being used, for Instance, for
the elephants, calfskin for the horse
and goatskin for the camels. This
covering must of couise fit without
a wiinkle to look natuial, so the wood
en model is first dipped into glue, then
sprinkled with chalk dust then the
skin is put on The chalk is so fine
that it fills the air and is drawn into
the throat and lungs A year of this
sort of work often lesults in death.
Another very injurious toy is the rub

used in 1 educing sheet rubber to the
necessary thinness while retaining its
strength and the dyeing of the bril

most of them poisonous.

of the man in question, observed that

"His Awful Fate.
An American visitor in a German
city bought a dachshund. The ani
mal's length of body, short and pecul
iarly shaped legs and "highly Intelli
gent dachs face," he writes, would
have made the dog conspicuous among
the finest of his breed. "One day we
missed him and were unable to find
our pet Next day his dead body, a
little longer than in life, was shown
to me by the man who came to tell us
he had found the dog. He was very
dead, but I did want to know how he
met his untimely end and after Inquir
ing learned that he had been run over
by a 'spiegelscheibentransportwagen.*

would have killed even an elephant

One of the mysteries of Mexico Is
presented by the Maya Indians, who
inhabit the Sierra Madre mountains in
the lower part of Sonora. They have
fair skins, blue eyes and light hair, and
students of ethnology have always
been puzzled to account for them.
There is a tradition, however, that
these Indians are the descendants of
the crew and passengers of a Swedish
vessel wrecked on the Mexican coast
centunes before Columbus discovered
the new world. But this tradition is
founded on nothing more substantial
than a folklore tale current among
them that their ancestors came over

A Frog of Peculiar Habits.
South America has a frog of peculiar
habits. Dwelling in the virgin forests,
at the tops of the highest trees, it
chooses as a site for its nursery some
hollow stump and then proceeds to
lme it with resin procured from trees
in the neighborhood This lining serves
to catch and hold the rainwater, with
which it quickly becomes filled. As
soon as this takes place the eggs are
laid therein, and here they undergo de
velopment into tadpoles. How the re
sin is collected is a mystery, nor is it
yet known how the separate pieces be
come welded to form the water tight
basin necessary to insure the safety of
the treasures deposited therein.
