A brand new 3tunt was pulled off
in Evansville last week as a joke on
Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Kohn, a
bridal couple. Their friends got
tmt a four pDgo extra announcing all
the details of the wedding and sold
them at the depot as they were
boarding their train. One corres
pondent described the marriage as a
jppe:ial from the ringside at Reno
and another said the wedding march
fas "Everybody's Doing It."
The bride's parents were highly in
dignant and appealed to the police
to suppress the "extra."

A delver into the romances of tho

Frances Folsom, who became Mrs.
Grover Cleveland. Emily Piatt, a

REBUILDING A STEGASARU3.
Down at the national museum a
squad of scientists are rehabilitating
a 8tegasarus whoso spirit fled to tho
I happy hunting grounds somo millions
of years ago.
This particular Btegasarus who was.
known familiarly as an armored dino
saur, scampered about the lowlands
of Colorado some aeons before Adam
and Eve made their appearance in tho
Garden of Eden. Nothing 1b known
of his genealogy except In a general
way, and tho immediate members of
his family left no traces behind.
About thirty years ago a scientist
discovered this Btegasarus in many
pieces, ossified to a boulder. Tho
boulder was brought to Washington
in fragments, and about a year ago
hammer and chisel were put to .work
removing Btegasarus from boulder.
Tho work of putting his body and
limbs together has just started, and
tho scientists aro confident that when
their labor Is completed they will
have a sure-enough specimen that
will pass muster in any menagerie.
It Is estimated that when he
romped about the world in tho jueras
sic period ho carried about ten tons of
bono and body.

they are made from wall paper. The

effort at any slavish pattern, for each
child had made a basket the size and

by the fact that half of recess time

In the use of willow they have been

The teachers have realized the full
value of this work, for they are ar
