Likewise must we repent. You say,
"I has'e stole nothing." I reply, "We
have all been guilty of the mightiest fel

God-robbed him of our time, robbed
him of cur talent, robbed him of our
services." Suppose you send a man out
as an agent of your firm, and every
month you pay him his salary, and at
te end of ten years you find oit that
he has bteen serving another firm, but

in the new contract this S:ate is a

their State adoptions.
4. Books in the cunty depositerie
(soid at actual cost by the county su
perintendents) are to be taken up a
cost by the publishers whose books ar
-ubstituted. This is a protection of th
school fund which by act of the legis
;ature has been invested in books fo
sale at cost.
5. Publishers pay freight and drayae
on all books where as much as $2
woth is ordered at a time, and pa;
such transportation charges where th
orders are as small as $10 worth, if or
dered by county superintendents
This small limit was put because if th
only books used from one publishe
should be copy boobs or algebras, th
dealer might have to order a small quan
tity and should not be required to pa
the freight. It would not be just t
the publisher, however, to allow a deal
er to harass him with a $5 order o
which the freight might more tha
equal the profit. The limit in the ol
contract was $100 and many county su
perintendents have been compelledt
pay the freight and add a few centst
the price of each book.
6. The affidavit and centract claus
that the bidder is not in a trust consti
tute-s a striking feature. This was sus
gested by the Indiana law which ha
attracted considerable attention, bu
the affidavit here required goes muec
further in that it icquires after th
private holdings of stockholders are
their belongirigs as trustees or benefi
ciaries. and further binds the publishe
to show his private records if the trut]
of the affidavit is questioned. iMore
over, the contract is void ab initioi
any untrue statement enters into thi
afidavit or clause. This is a practica
way to fight trusts.

CHARGED BOARDER EXTRA.
But the Landlady Found She Had

ing About It.
They were seated together in a car
of an incoming suburban train the
other morning. so near to The Saun

every word of their conversation. re
lates the Philadelphia Inquirer. The
fat womtan got on the train two sta
tiOls ahead of the thin woman.
"Well. Low do you du?" the latter
negan, etiusively.' as soon as she had
(ropped into the Seat a o:gsde of the
fornmer. "Why, hw do you do? So
glad to see you. Diein't know I had
starttd to take boarders since I saw
you last. did you?"
The fat woman admitted her ig
norance on that. subject.
"Well, I have." continued the thin
woman. "How do I like it ? Well, it
has its drawbacks; lots of 'em."
"Yes. I suppose it must have," as
sented the fat woman. "Boarders who
grumble. boarders with big appetites
and all that sort of thing."
"My, talking of hoarders with big
appetites," rejoined the thin woman.
"You ought to see the new boarder
I got yesterday. A young fellow. and
he seemed to have so much money I
chargei him two dollars more a week
than any of the other boarders. But,
say, he can certainly eat. Had break
fast at the house this morning. What
dro you think of sending out for chops
three times, hot cakes twice, and cof
fee. why, he must have swallowed five
cups at l'ast. Then the potatoes he
ate were enough for three ordinary
men. 1 never dreamed there could
be so much food put inside of such a
small man. Of course, it made me
nervous all the time he was eating.
Why- didn't I tell him he mustn't eat
so much? Why, I don't want to lose
him, don't you understand? I'm mak
ing money off of him, all right, but
goodness knows he carries off the
prize for big eating. Come out and
see him some time. It's worth your
while. I'll guarantee you."
"She'll be too late, madam," inter
posed' a young fellow who, sitting one
seat to the rear of the two women,
had' remained unnoticed by them. "I
don't believe I'll return to your house
any more. It doesn't exactly suit me,
anyway. The money I paid you in
advance, including the two dollars
overcharge, will pay you well for the
trouble and expense I've put you to.
Good-morning; I get off here."
It was fully Eve minutes after the
train pulled away from the station
before the woman spoke, and all she

A Delicate and Refreshing Prepara
tion That Is Easily
Women of to-day are not as liable to
faint as their grandmothers were, be
cause they dress more sensibly and do
not wear as tight dresses or as tight
shoes and gloves, but it is a wise and'
sensible precaution to keep fragrant
salts on hand, says the New York Trib
une. Any salt loses Its strength in a
short time. The simple lavender salts
are the most desirable of all perfumed
salts. -These are easily prepared at
home. While you are preparing a por
tion of these saltS it Is as easy to make
several bottles or vinaigrettes as one,
and the cost is small Procure half a
dozen small, clear glass bottles, with
close-cut glass stoppers if you wish.
A pretty stopper costs very little, pur
chased with the bottles by the half
dozen, and adds considerable to the
value of the vinaigrette as a gift. It Is.
desirable that a vinaigrette be small,
so it may be easily carried in the pocket.
Vinaigrettes are often very elaborate,
decorated with silver, gold and even
precious stones, but a tiny bottle of
clear glass with a pretty stopper Is al
ways in good taste and 'as useful as a
more ornate one. To prepare the salt,
procure from .a trustworthy druggist
half a pound of carbonate of ammonia
and an ounce and a half of the best ei
of lavender. Crush the two together
in a mortar, or in any dish that will
mix them. Set the mixture in -.large
bowl, which should be put In a pan of
warm water, covered and set in a mod
erate oven for about an hour. Stir the
mixture several times while it is heat
ing. It is not necessary for the ammo
nia to be crushed fine. If it is in broken
lumps it lasts longer. Do not get in
the foolish habit of using a vinaigrette
continually. Cases of obstinate deaf
ness have been ascribed to this cause.
The salts are also said to 'nave an inju
rious effect on the vocal chords as well
as on the auditory nerves when used
continually. Even the odor of flowers,
notably the odor of violets, has been
known to cause a singer temporarily
to lose her voice.
Lobster a la Newberg.
Recipes for this dish have been given
by the score but there is always room
for another if it is good and simple,
like the following: Cook together in
the double boiler of a chafing dish a
half- pint of cream and the yolks of
three eggs, until they thicken. Put in
them the meat from one large or two
small lobsters and when this, is smok
ing hot pour in a gill of sherry. Cook
until the mixture is hot, season with a
scant teaspoonful of salt and a couple
of dashes of cayenne, and serve at
once. For those who like it, a table
spoonful of good brandy may be added.

Declares for Bryan.
Mayor S. M. Jones, of Toledo, of
Toledo, Ohio, who polled 330 000 votes
in the race for governor of Ohio as an
independent, is out in a strong card
declaring for Bryan. He will vote and
work for the Democratic nominee,
Mayor Jones says: "I believe that
imperialism is the logical sequance of
miitrikm antd pttrtyism,. and this ill
begotten tio is the legitimate fruit of
the pirit of bossism. I believe the
position of the administration with
respect to the Philippina war is a denial
of equality and a cor.tradiotion of the
principles of human liberty."
Killed in a Wreck.
A special from Cairo, I., says: The
special car of the Duncan Clarke Fe
male Minstrel troupe was wrecked at
Mounds Wednesday and of 16 ooeu
pnts nine are now dead and six others
are seriously injiured, some of them
fatally. Patrick Patterson, the only
man killed, was the cook. He was huded
from the car and struck the switch steao.
A special train was hurried from this
ity to the scene, with Dr. W. W.
Cranslead, the company's physician,
