Noe New York Namesake.
The genuine old New Yorker was
looking very sad indeed. "I was look
ing over -a post office guide or direc
tory today," he said, "and while oth
- er cities of the land. have small towns
scattered about the country named for
them, New York is without a single
namesake- If I had the New York
conceit I might say there could be
but one New York, but I haven't, and
I wonder if the absence of namesakes
Is due, to the fact that New Yorkers
are so enamored' of their city that
none has ever gone forth to colonize,
or that those who have gone are- of so
small consequence that they have been
* nable to de as much as to give the
mie of their native town to any that
they have assisted In founding.
Whatever It Is, the result remains,
-and there is but one New York men
tioned in the post office directory."
Men who craned their necks and bus
tied against each other to get a look at
the girl on exhibition in one of the
store windows were given the laugh
by women in the crowd. The flutter
ing of the girr's parasol, and the blow
ing of her dress convinced the men
that they were looking at a "living
model," and it was not until- they had
gazed at it for some time that they
discovered they had been faled. By
arrangements of fans the breeze gen
tiy blew the gown worn by the
wax figure, and also her parasoi. Her
hair was blown about her face in a
most bltcfW fashion and more
than one man exclaimed, "Isn't she a
peach!" and discovered his error when
the women in the crowd snickered.
Jam, From "Jamaica."
Jam seems to take Its name from
Jamaica, and Is comparatively a mod
ern luxury. Galt, in his -"Annals of
the Parish," states that the fashion
of jam making was Introduced into
Scotland about 1760, when berry
bushes were planted by "some of our
young men that had been sailors com
ing from Jamaica," and the condiment
'was valuea In the first place chiefly as
"an excellent medicine for a sore
throat." A writer In Hone's "Every
day Book," in 1826, deplored the fact
that jam could not be "purchased at
the shops as other articles of con
The laurel was much in favor in
olden days, as it meant "love tri
umphs." The Greek bride wore a
wreath of myrtle. A bride of today
may choose her own. flower If she
wishes, stamping It with her individu
ality. Some girls take the flower al
lotted to the month, especially If the
time happens to be June, with Its
wealth of roses. Widows usually
wear violets, either white or purple,
or a combination of both.

one more track and will be equal to
a 9-foot road. So you see we have
three times the wearing surface on a
14-foot roadbed that we do on a 9-foot.
Then we have a chance to pass other
rigs without one or both going into

9-foot roads, has a handier surface and
is better in every way, writes John D.
De Cou in Michigan Farmer. If you
come up behind a rig you have a
chance to get by. If you are driving
an auto you do not have to go outside i
of the hard roadbed and take chances
on skidding into the ditch.
A 9-foot roadbed has but one track.
Where the wheels run it gets packed
perfectly solid and a heavy load will
crush all small stones into dust, and
the first auto that comes along sucks
it up on the front side of the wheels
and then blows it clear off the track
when they let go. This doesn't seem,
much, but when from one to fifty or
more go over the same track it soon
counts. Met:while, the horses travel

Then when heavy rains come the
ridges where the wheel tracks come

off at the sides, cutting ditches and
causing a bad chuck hole.
This road is hard to keep in repair.
If you use a road grader or drag tc
scrape the sides to the center the
wheel tracks are so eolid that they
will hold up the blades and you will
do but little if any good. If you haui
