Of Tobacco Raised By Chris
tian County Farmer.
Fred Harned. near this city, last
year raised on two acres of land 4,
4)08 pounds of tobacco, got a flat
price of $10 per hundred for this to
bacco, or $200.40 per acre. The to
bacco which Mr. Harned raised on
this two acrei was the larpest ever
seen hereabouts, the leaves measur
ing as high as forty-four inches in
length and thirty inches in width.
Tnis, too, with the plants topped at
eighteen and twenty leaves. This is
believed to b a record for tobacco
yield and until somebody else comes
forward with a better showing, Mr.
Harned claims the title of "boss"

There is one honest man among
the "lifers" serving time in Michi
gan prison. At least Mrs. Al J
Straus, of Cincinnati, believes so.
Neil Sinclair, of Chippewa county, is
the prisioner and he i3 probably
richer today than he has been for
some time, at least.
Recently Mrs. Straus visited the
prison. Later she missed two
diamond rings which she valued at
$1,000. Believing she lost them in
the hotel where Bhe was shopping,
she reported the loss and search was
instituted. But it developed that
Sinclair found the jewels in the
prison yard. They were in a cham
ois bag and probably had been kicked
about unconsciously for some time
by other convicts. The jewels were
promptly returned to the owner.

SPORTSMAN'S GOOD "BAG."
A gentleman out ferreting re
cently, in the Kildare hunt country
not far from Naas, had a strange ex
perience. From the first likely look
ing hole his ferrets bolted a weasel
and two rabbits, all of which he
shot. About 100 yards further on
the same fence, and quite near the
herd's house, a big cat was evicted,
and almost immediately from the
same hole three rabbits. Then from
a ditch running parallel to the
first, and near a flour mill, the
ferrets bolted 11 rats, all of which
were fortunately dispatched, and
then the ferrets lying in, his men
dug to them, to find that they had
two dead rabbits, and beyond them
in the end of the hole four live ones.

IMPORTANT DUTIES ARE HIS

The function and responsibilities
of tic tonstmdstcr are as yet imper
fectly understood. The ordinary
conception of n toastmaster is of
a man who gracefully winds up an
after-dinnor speaker , and sets him
going. People usually overlook ho
mm h more important duty of keep
ing a speaker under control after
he hna hven set in motion.
The situation really calls for a
professional toastmtistor. During
tho midwinter season in Now York
city nlono thoro must bo nights when
10,000 men, disporsed in hotels and
club rooms, are dining in behalf of
some cause or other.
Tho orator may he inspired, tho
audience may be impressed, there
may be applause or there may bo
riot but always there is a sensation
of dealing" with abstractions. It is
either politics, or economics; it is
always a cause.
Having in mind, then, the great
importance of tho public banquet
as an educational institution, we re
affirm tho necessity of placing that
institution on an ordered and scien
tific basis. To speak of the govern
ment regulation of public banquets
is premature. At present tho crying
need is for toastmasters who shall
hold the balance firm between the
amount of oratory expended and the
amount of food consumed. A school
for toastmasters might deal ade
quately with the emergency.

FOUND JEWELRY IN HADDOCK.
An Edinburgh (Scotland) laun
dress has made a most curious find
in the stomach of a haddock, which
has turned out to be of considerable
value. She had bought a supply of
haddocks recently to serve up for
dinner, when, upon opening ono of
them to clean it, she was amazed to
find a diamond and Opal earring
lodging in the stomach of the fish.
The ornament measured an inch in
length, and contained 12 diamonds
and a large opal of rich quality, in
a silver sotting with gold mounting.
From fhe circlet of diamonds sur
rounding the opal there is one miss-

The damage that a slice of Bos

lobster may have caused is estimated
at $18,000 by two women, who
brought suits in a Boston court. One
of the plaintiffs seeks $8,000 dam
ages from a baker for the loss of a
tooth, due to biting a nail, which she
alleges was in brown bread bought
of him, while the other, passionate
ly fond of lobsters, claims that she
lost her position in a department
store because of illness caused by her
eating lobsters, which she says
"were old enough to vote." She
wants $10,000 damages from the
dealer who sold tho lobsters.

LONG NIGHT OF ANNOYANCES
TrMrtM of lttfJi HmsshiH, ttarl
A. seri of aanoyinf though some
what amusing adventures befel a
household in Glasgow (Scotland),
ono recent night. The trouble start
ed about six o'clock, when the kitch
en rango took fire, matters becoming
so serious that the fire brigade had
to bo summoned. After their de
parture, and during the temporary
nbsenco of the householder, a well
dressed man called, and announcing
that ho was a- representative from
the fire station, proceeded to potter
about tho fireplace. After a few
minutes' examination ho collected
a shilling for his work, and then de
parted. When the husband was in
formed of tho man's visit he became
suspicious and infofmcd the police.
Tho tired couple had hardly retired
for tho night when they were redely
awakened about midnight by two
police officers wishing a full descrip
tion of tho impostor. Again the per
secuted couple retired to rest. But
about 3 :00 a. m. tho gentleman from
tho next close aroused them with tho
news that their "conflagration" had
eaten its way through to his bed
room. The new outbreak was speed
ily subdued, but not- before .the
range which had been the original
cause of tho trouble had been
"dozed" with a cold chisel and a few
tuckets of water thrown behind to
complete tho general disorder.
ARE TOO FOND OF LITIGATION
Habit of Running to the Courts With
Every Dispute Americans' Most
If one were asked to name the
costliest folly known in this country
he would not be far from the mark
if he should say it was the Ameri
can craze for litigation, declares a
writer in The Docket, In some com
munities, especially the small ones
in rural districts, a man's impor-
nnce seems to be measured by the
number of lawsuits he has on hand,
and he who has none is often regard
ed as a person of slight consequence.
But the habit of going to law is
not confined to small neighborhoods,
nor to persons of trifling affairs, as
a single instance will Bhow. There
is now in process of settlement in a
neighboring Btate the estate of a man
which at the time of hiB death was
valued at $1,000,000. Rival claim
ants to the property engaged in liti
gation which has extended over a
period of several years, and now, as
the end appreaches, it is said the
estate has dwindled to about $23,
000. Manifestly the narties to this liti-
gation have made a heavy invest
ment in experience, but unhappily
for them it is not what financiers
call a "liquid asset"
LIVES WITH BROKEN NECK.
A man who had his neck broken
some two months ago in Sparrow
Point, Md., was brought back to his
home in Gloucester City, N. J., tho
other day, with his head and neck
in a plaster cast. The man is able
to sit up, and states that in a Bhort
time he expects to be as well as
usual. "When he was taken to the
hospital immediately after tho acci
dent it was not expected that he
would live 24 hours. The doctors,
however, gave him special attention,
and to their amazement he has con
tinued steadily to improve.
FOUR AND FOUR ARE EIGHT.'
A theatrical manager once ex
pressed disappointment because his
leading man, an Irishman, refused
to attempt the part of King Henry
"Why, you can play almost any
thing and everything," said tho
manager, "and yet you will not
take one part of King Ilenry VIII."
"No, indeed," replied tho actor,
"I can't; but I'll tell you what I will
do I'll play tho two parts of King
Ilenry IVV and that will be just the
HARD TO UNDERSTAND.
"My husband," she said, "doesn't
belong to any lodges or clubs. He
is not a man who travels much and
he is at homo every night."
