that the county of Pend Oreille hold a

two years no feeble-minded patients
had been committed to the hospital,

In that period but two small counties of
the state had equaled this record.

Tacitus, the great Roman historian,
was the originator of the phrase, "Con

scribing the funeral of Junia in his
"Annales." he said the images of her
famous kinsmen, Brutus and Cassius,
shone by their absence. Lord John
Russell popularized the phrase in Eng

Eye of a Horse.
The appearance of "white" In the eye
of a horse indicates a vicious nature,
because a high tempered horse con
stantly looks about apprehensive of
danger or desiring to do mischief.
The quick motion of the eyeball in op

large surface of the white, which
thus becomes an evidence of the tem

A Joke Was No Joke With Him.
Men who purchase country weekly
newspapers not infrequently haw a
desire to roll up their sleeves and do
the work. Such a man, a Scotchman,
was recently mentioned by E. W. Mil
ler of Ottawa, 111., when a crowd of
writers were relating experiences they
had had. This man. according to Mr.
Miller, turned to the managing editor—
who went down to the editorial room
at 8 o'clock every morning, by the
way. wrote out the assignments for
the day and then went out to cover
them—and said he had noticed a col
umn of "wee bit jokies" In other pa
pers and thought it would be well if
his new paper carried such a column.
"But where,'' he asked, "can I get a
mon to write 'em?"
The managing editor suggested that
the owner, being Scotch, write such a

Robert. Had he not a sister Lucy, and
did she not marry a Jacobite?
My brother promptly replied:
My Dear Lytton—l care little for mj
family and still less for Sir Robert, but J
know that he never had a sister Lucy, sc
she could not have married a Jacobite.
However, this mattered little to Lore
Lytton. for his answer ran:

Wellington's Wrist of Steel.
The Duke of Wellington had only one
vanity—his wrist was like steei. Now
when he was given the sword of state
to carry it was his infinite delight thai
ae was able to carry it upright. All his
predecessors had had to slope it toward
the shoulder. He would go down tc
posterity, he resolved, glorified by the
power of his wrist. In vain Sir Thomae
Lawrence pointed out that as a mattei
of art it would never do; that the sighl
of a man perennially carrying a sword
from his wrist would fatigue those whe
looked at his picture. The duke insist
ed upon having his way. Lawrence did
manage to smuggle in a cushion upon
which the duke seems to rest his el
bow, but close examination shows thai
arm and cushion do not meet.—Londot
Liszt and His Cigars.
Liszt, the composer, is said to have
abandoned the habit of smoking as a
result of a misunderstanding with the
Italian customs authorities. He was
accustomed to smoke but one cigar a
day and on a journey to Rome had one
cigar for each day of his stay in the
Holy City placed in his trunk. On be
ing asked at the frontier if he had any
tobacco to declare he, absentminded,
shook his head. When the trunk was
examined nearly a hundred cigars were
found. These were confiscated and
their owner fined 500 francs. As a re
sult of this experience Liszt made a
vow never to smoke again.
