You Never Can Tell
Not Much Difference
We notice in advertisements for
the wrestling match to be held here
April 8 that a dance will be held after
the wrestling. Why differentiate?
If the dance isn't any different than
most of those we have seen lately, the
only difference will be that the dance
is open to the public and the adver
tised wrestling match is confined to
four men, two at a time.
Try Them Both
Consider the Source
A- married' man was overheard to
say' recently that ft seemed good to
be able to see a man again with some
of the yellow of'ah'egg on his beard.
Said it looked like old times again,
when everyone could afford to eat
eggs. But if he had been a single
man, eating at restaurants, he
wouldn't have n&ticed any difference.

may appeal. Sounds like another

Niagara River Obstructed.
The Niagara river was obstructed
by ice at Lake Erie and ran nearly
dry above the falls for one day, March
29, 1848. The Detroit News recalls
that a man walked across the falls
that day and the water did not more
than coyer the soles of his shoes.
Photographs I were taken,by Orrln-E.
Dunlap of Niagara Falls oue day in
March, 1903, which were printed In
the papers at the time, showing the
American falls practically dried up,
only a little stream trickling over the
cliff in the distance, while in the fore
ground a portion of the falls, generally
swept by a torrent of water, was en
tirely dry. Other pictures showed peo
ple walking about and'gathering sou
venirs in what '.& generally the bed of
the American rapids ubove the frills.
An ice blockade above Goat island, di
verting practically all the water to
the Canadian side, was responsible for
this unusual condition: The same
thing happened in February, 1905. The
falls were dry but a day or so at a

Increaging attacks by the forces of

Baboons Afraid of Airplanes.
Norman Chase, an English traveler,
snys at Kainaens, he noticed a num
ber of baboons which were in the
vicinity showing unmistakable signs
of fear. They crowded together and
whimpered, giving every Indication
that something unusual had disturbed
them. Mr. Chase's dogi a well-bred
Airedale, and known to be plucky and
fearless, also become uneasy, and ap
peared to be In dread of something.
On looking round for the cause of all
the trouble. Mr. Chase observed the
airplane flying overhead at a compara
tively low altitude. The sound of the
engine and the huge birdlike appear
ance of the plane no doubt upset the
equilibrium of the baboons.
Yawning Said to Induce Sleep.
The last suggestion for the cure of
mild attacks of sleeplessness is the
"Imitation Yawn" system. It has been
tried with considerable success by the
writer himself. Try it for yourself.
The nest time you feel wakeful at
night, just close your eyt*nd Indulge
in a few long drawn-ont and con
cientious yawns. By the time you

Is more than probable that a certain
drowsiness will be steadily creeping
over your senses. The explanation is
simple enough. Each time one yawn*,
the bad air in the lungs Is more or
less expelled, and this expulsion auto
matically induces restfulness. More
over, the mere sound of a yawn, by
reason of its sleepy associations, will
belp to bring about sleep.
