sw-- There is doubtless a great many of our friendIi in the country
0 who have postponed buying their family supplics o- footwear on
account of the mild winter, but now that we have been suddenly -
w transformed from
Spring to Winter,
They will be forced to do their buying hurriedly in order to
avoid the risk of colds by the sudden change of the weather.
We have had a very satisfactory shoe business, and our stock
was bad!y broken early in the season, but recently all the gaps -
have been filled by the receipt of fresh supplies.
We still adhere to THE H. C. GODMAN LINE as being the
best value we can get for the little ones. and we know of no in
vestment that will yield better returns to a parent than to buy
his children's shoes from us. The prices range from 50 cents to
$1.25. according to size, and every pair warranted.
i Shoes for Women.
Here, also, we make a specialty of THE GODn1AN LINE in
medium grade. It is the only shoe we carry n stock to sell for
$1.50, and the flattering reports received from them justify us in Z
the belief that no better value can be put m a s,hoe for that Z
price.- We are constantly increasing our traae on
E. P.Reed& Co.'s in e.
And tie lady who is seeking style and quality combined with
ease and comfort will be sure to find it here.
Here our strong point is, as it has been for some years, THE
L. M. REYNOLDS LINE, and they are so well known that there Z
is nothing new to be said of them, except that they are con
stantly improving on the style witout increasng the,price.
THE RESILIA SHOE.
OF- This is a new line which we have recently added to sell at $5.
This shoe seems to have filled a Iong-felt want, inasmuch as it '
has an Invisible Ventilated Cork Sole, ventilates at every step,
and the proper shoe for this cool, damp weather, as it protects -
the foot from moisture. Neat and dressy, of the finest material
and highest grade workmanship. It will immediately impress
you with its merits, if you will but take the time to call and ex

rear of the car and met her face to
"Carry your grip, mum," impudently
remarked one of them, with all the
airs of a "smartie" who thinks he has
done sometling clever.
Quick as a tlash into the white
gloved hand went the travel soiled
grip, and with a "To the next corner"
the "clever gentleman" found himself
suddenly transformed into a porter,
with a trim little miss walking along
beside him in a very matter of fact
Looking as if he wanted to treat the
matter as a juke and didn't know ex
actly how, he religiously carried the
grip to the corner. What else coilld
the poor man do?
Relieving him finally of his burden,
the girl innocently slipped a dime into
the elegantly gloved hand (she was
used to having porters assist her) and
prepared to hoard a car. Not the
slightest suggestion of a smile crossed
her pretty features.
As the whiz of the car finally
drowned the uproarious laughter and
the "That's one on you" of the victim's
companion a merry twinkle might have
been seen in a pair of blue eyes on a

Lawn Ganmes In England.
We get nothing like the pleasure out
of our lawns which the English do.
Where we : ie at fault is that we do
not use our 'awns to anything like
their full capacity of enjoyment. Here
and there we use them as the framing
of lawn tennis or cioquet courts (which
we make either of (.irt or asphalt), and
here and there we mark out upon their
surface a baseball diamond. Still rare
ly and only in limnu.'-d localities they
are used for the playing of cricket.
Both the latter gaimes, however, re
quire for their oit.ielders rather a field
than a lawn, within the ordinary mean
ing of the word, and, speaking broadly
and generally, it may be said with
truth that we have no games wh
require only a lawn and nothing mc
Nevertheless the two games of ja,
o' the green, or lawn bowls, and quoits
have held their own through ten cen
turies at least in Great Britain and
in later times have spread with the
race to the remotest parts, which might
be played on tens of thousands of
lawns in America, to the great advan
tage of the players and to the enhance
ment of the pleasures of country life.

An Alligator's Nest.
Alligators' nests resemble haycocks
more than anything else to which they
can be compared. They average about
four feet in height and five feet in
diameter and are constructed of grasses
and herbage. First the mother gator
deposits one layer of eggs on a mortar
like floor, and, having covered this with
a stratum of mud and herbage about
eight inches thick, lays another set of
eggs upon that, and so on to the top,
there being commonly from 100 to 200
eggs in a rnest. With their tails the par
ents then beat down the tall grass and
weeds to pr-event the approach of un
seen enemies. The female watches
her eggs until they are hatched by
the heat of the sun and then takes
her brood under her own care, defend
ing them and providing for their sub
Englatad's Oldest Alehouse.
The oldest licensed village alehouse
in England is claimed to be the George
inn, in North St. Philip. The license
datos from 1397. Each story of the
picturesque old structure overhangs
that beneath. The front is broken by
bay windows, a porch and a flight of
stone steps leading to a doorway in the
wal. At the back are more quaint doors
and windows, and a turret built against
the wall incloses an outside stair,
while in the yard still remains part of
the old gallery fouud in so many hos
telries of the middle ages. Most of
the front is timbered, and a curious
chimney surmounts each gable. The
upper floor inside is of plaster.
The Bleniheim Spaniel,.n h
It isa traditionary custom inth
Marlborough family for each duke to
present a Blenheim spaniel to the duch
ess when she enters Blenheim palace
for the first time as its mistress. The
story from which this custom had its
origin is that during the battle of Blen
heim a spaniel followed at the heels of
the great duke throughout the day,
never leaving him until victory was
assured. and the duchess, the famous
Sarah Churchill, in memory of the in
cident forthwith adopted the spaniel
as her favorite dog.
"An ideal match," they say, indicat
ing the newly married couple.
"Eminently suited to each other,"
Here they pause and watch the hap
"Seems like a made-to order meeting
of affinities," they conclude. "He is a
vegetarian, and she Is a grass widow."
"Why," asked the stage manager,
"do you insist upon shouting 'Bah!' at
intervals of about two minutes?"
"Why?" repeated the villain in tones
that indicated a complete confidence
in the consistency of his performance.

FLIGHT OF THE SNIPE.
Its Dcaging Comes From the Ances
tral Method of Avoiding Foes.
The flight of the snipe is swift, vigor
ous and usually for the first few yards
erratic. The bird gets under way
sm::rtly, and as a usual thing goes bor
ing up wind in a style rather sug
gestive of a feathered corkscrew. A
series of electrical zigzags get him to
top speed. whercupcon his progress
te adies a bit and ie darts away in
something more like a straight line. As
a general rule a flushed bird springs a
few feet into the air, bangs for the
fLaction of a second, then begins to
twist and dodge as though the Old Boy
v:-s at his tail. It would be very in
teresting could we discover the original
ca::se of the dodging. Possibly some
ancient foe, now long extinct, was best
haffled by that mode of flight, for
there usually is some such explanation
ft5r peculiar actions by wild things.
Because the flight happens to be puz
zling to a gunner is no guarantee that
the bird dodges for that purpose-such
an explanantion would imply a deal
more intelligence than the entire tribe
of snipe are possessed of. Snipe, of
course, dodged on the wing long prior
to the appearance of firearms, and it
is extremely unlikely that the erratic
flight has anything in the nature of
protective tactics against the devices of
human foes.-Edwyn Sandys in Out
A Plea For Leisure.
Individuals will rather helplessly re
ply to a plea for leisure by saying:
"What are we going to do? Competi
tors 'hustle' and we must do the same
or starve." Some will urge that the
American temperament demands con
stant occupation, that "hustling" is
our national trait. Well, I have no
desire to insist that we go back to
stagecoach days. But all of us have
plenty of opportunity to tone down a
little. And why not try it? A. na
tional trait may be dangerous as well
as useful-nay need control. If the
average individual would make more
leisurely use of his leisure there would
not be nearly as many cases of nervous
prostration as there are now. Put on
the brakes a bit. Take things a little
easier when you can. I know people
who are never content unless they are
"doing" something. Such abnormal de
sire for activity is not natural; It is an
tural craving. It will be well for
-%t to be so eager to gratify it.

A 'Ian of Steady Habits."
It was a very angry man who met
an acquaintance on the street the other
day. "I thought you told me that D.
was a man of steady habits," were his
first words following the usual salu
tation. "I said I required a man of
absolutely steady hablts, and you were
very positive in your assurance that
the man in question was such a one."
"Well, has he proved otherwise?"
"Why, man, he is drunk all of the
time; in fact, I do not think he has
drawn a sober breath since he has
been with me."
"Then what are you jumping on me
for? Your own statement bears out
just what I told you about him. I
have known D. for the past ten months,

during all of that period, and If that

star. The wily advance agent went to
Syracuse a we-ek or so before the local
theater opened there for the season
and proceeded to fill up the guileless
newspaper men with the statement
that Janauschek had said that she
would open her season in that place or
not at all. Hecr manager wanted Chi
cago. but offered to compromise on
Boston or Philadelphia, but the ma
dame was firm.
Naturally Syracuse was delighted at
the honor. Janauschek got pages of
advance notices, and when the opening
night came the theater was packed as

Perhaps the best way to read history
is to take up the lhfe of same great fig
ure that attracts our imagination and
be drawn by that into the study of the
general stage upon which he was only
a single actor. Certaiinly it is not a
good plan to begin with those elabo
rate documentary histories in whiich
you cannot see the wood for the trees.
It is better to be wrong in a few of
your facts or even contract a bias from
some partisan historian than to lose
yourself in a morass of documents,

If they occasionally lead you astray,
you can always correct them by the

may Froude, and so undoubtedly was

none the less. these are the great his

to see history as it lies beneath in wide
views and broad masses.
"speaiking or Texas." sai a young
lawyer who once lived in the Lone
Star State to the New Orleans Times
Democrat, "reminds me of a peculiar
conversation I heard in a grocery
store a few years ago in one of the
smaller places of the state, and the
story will amp~ly illustrate the pecul
iarities of the vornacular in certain
more remote parts of Texas. I hap
pened to be in the grocery store in
question when a little girl came in to
buy some eggs, and the following con
versation was carried on between the
girl and the keeper of the place: 'Ain't
you got no eggs? asked the little girl.
'I ain't said I ain't,' the storekeeper re
plied, whereupon the little girl, replied
aftr this fashion: 'I ain't ask you is
you ain't you. I ask you is you is you.
Ain't you? That's the way they talk in
some sections of the state. The little
lassie who used the expression made
herself clear and she got the eggs."

3TORY OF A FAMOUS POEM
low Gray-s "Elegy" Made Its First
One of the most celebrated of eight
!enth century pcoms, Gray's "Elegy,"
nade its first public appearance in the
hape of a turriedly printed pamphlet,
vhich was sald for sixpence. This pub
ication was the result of a curious
ace for priority. Gray completed the
>oem some time in 1750, but had no
mmediate intention of publishing it.
L copy, however, found its way into
he hands of a Mr. Owen, the publish
:r and proprietor of the Magazine of
lagazines, a recently established peri
viical, and he wrote to the poet stat
ng his intention of printing it in his
nagazine, and asking his co-operation.
[he proposal was not at all agreeable
o Gray, but, seeing that publication was
nevitable, he wrote at once to Horace
Valpole explaining the circumstance
mnd asking him to get Dodsley to print
t immediately, but without the au
hor's name. Walpole handed the
>ocm to Dodsley on Feb. 12, 1751, and
in the 20th a copy was in Gray's hands
.t Cambridge, so that it was probably
>ublished in London on the 18th or
.0th. The Miogazine of Magazines for
ebruary, according to -the then cus
om, was published toward the end of
he month, and may have come out on
he same day. The rival editions must
tave appeared, it is pretty safe to say,
ithin a few hours of each other. The
ttion of the magazine editor was
Lardly justifiable, but it laid the read
ng world under a debt of obligation

ral original copies of the "Elegy" in

)e, which was sold for $1,150 at
;otheby-s in 1875, was especially in
cresting from the number of correc
ions and crasures made by the au
hor's hand. In this manuscript Gray
ad substituted "Cromwell" and "Mil
on" for "Cesar and "Tully" as he had
riginally written. His friend Mason

Few Grow Nine Feet High, the .a
jority Being Under Eight Feet.
The average term of an elephapt's
life, although there is no precise In
formation on the point, is seventy or
eighty years. The elephant is not in
full vigor and strength till thirty-five.
The most ready way of forming' an' a
proximate idea of the age -is by the
amount of turn over of the upper edge
of the ear. In young animals, some
times up to the age of eight or nine
years, the edge is quite straight. It,
however, then begins to turn over, and
by the time the animal Is thirty the
edges lap over to the extent of an inch,
and between this age and sixty. this
increases to two inches or slightly
more. Extravagant ideas are held as
to the height of an elephant Such a
thing as an elephant measuring ten
feet at the shoulder docs not exist In
India or Burma. Sanderson, who is ad
mitted to be the best authority on the
subject, says the largest male he ever
met with measured 9 feet 10 Inches
and the tallest female 8 feet 5 inches.
The majority of elephants, however,
are below eight feet, and an animal
rarely reaches nine feet, the female
being slightly shorter than the male.
The carcass of an elephant 7 feet 4 inch
es tall weighed in portions gave a total
weight of 3,000 pounds, so an elephant
weighing two tons should be common
enough. The skin was about three
fourths of an inch thick.
Punishment In Persia.
Among the Persians the usual mode
of punishment is the bastinado, from
which men of the highest rank are not
exempt It Is inflicted with very great
severity, frequently so as to render the
sufferer almost a cripple for life. The
victim is thrown upon his face and each
foot is passed through a loop of strong
cord attached to a pole, which is raised
horizontally by men, who, twisting it
round, tighten the ropes and render
the feet immovable. Two executioners
then strike the sole alternately with
switches of the pomegranate tree well
steeped In water to render them sup
ple. A store of these switches is gen
erally ready for use in the pond which
adjoins the courtyards of the houses of
the great The punishment frequently
lasts for an hour or until the unfortu
nate victim faints from pain.
Ruskin on Humility.
I believe that the first test of a truly
great man is his humility. I do not
mean by humility doubt of his own
power or hesitation in speaking his
opinlons, but a right understanding of
all the relations between what he can
do and say and the rest of the world's
sayings and doings. All great men not
only know their business, but usually
know that they know it, only they do
not think any better of themselves on
that account-John Ruskin.
