I Z?o Ko Gamble?
Some people do by spending their time and
labor and money by housing a crop of hay, oats
and other farm produce, and keeping thousands
of dollars invested in live stock housed in barns,
and gamble with themselves that it will not
burn. DO YOU ?
Other people place their savings in a home
and handsome furniture and then gamble on
their luck that it will not burn. DO YOU?
Still others inyest thousands in factories,
mills, warehouses and other things subject to
fire, and think they can, by careful watching,
prevent a fire. DO YOU?
To all persons gambling with themselves
against loss by fire, wind or tornado, we would l
suggest you give the matter careful considera
tion. Can you afford to take chances of losing
part or all of your accumulations for a lifetime
by gambling on your luck? We think not. See

TUBULAR BELL CHIME
The Herschede Hall Clock as a timepiece,
a tubular chime, and an article of furniture for
home, office, or institution, appeals alike to
utility, refinement, and musical taste. The
perfect movement insures correctness of time;
the solid oak or mahogany case, with classic
lines, conforms to good tacte; and the melo
dious tubular chimes, sounding the hours and
quarters after the peals of Whittington or
Westminster, serve as a pleasing reminder of
the passing hour. The fifty styles give ample
choice in design, size, and price, all showing
the moon's phases in the dial arch. We are
sales agents for The Herschede Hall Clock
Co. of this city, and will send illustrated cat

Irishman Who Slept In Haunted
House Traveled With Greatest
Velocity Ever Recorded.
Walker Ilines, railroad authority
and expert on rapid transportation,
tells a story of an Irishman who
traveled with the greatest speed ever
recorded. The Irishman was down
on his luck and needed a lodging
place. After asking the loan of a
bed in several houses in a small west
ern town, he encountered a preacher,
who told him:
"There's an unoccupied house
down the road a little way. You
might sleep there. But I am goinp
to warn you that the house $
"Xo matter," replied the Irish
man; "I'm not afraid of ghosts."
Soon after dark the preacher
dropped in to see the Irishman am

a trifle nervous. Three days later
he saw coming down the road the
weary and dutsty figure of the formei
tenant of the ghost-ridden house.
"Why, where have you been?" he
inquired kindly. "What have you
been doing during the three days
since you went into that house?"
"All that time," replied the Irish
man, "I've been coming back."

800 Gallons of Indian ''Booze"
About 800 gallons of tiswin, or
talapal, a n jntoxicatinjr drink
manufactured by the Apache
Indians, have been confiscated by
Indian Agents at Fort Apache,
Arizona. A bottle of the liquor,
which is also known as "corn beer,"
was received at the Bureau of
Indian Affairs and will be turned
over to a chemist for analysis.
The liquor according to the
Indian bureau, is exclusively an
Apache beverage and is very intox
icating. It is a weight-producing
drink, Indians addicted to its use
becoming very fat.
The liquor has the appearance
of .milky Water and has a bad odor.
It ds made principally from corn,
but whisk, roots and "loco weed,"
a plant which poisons animals and
makes them insane, are sometimes
used by the Indians in its manufacture.
