TunCynthinna Democrat thinks "the

The childish innocence on tho part of
little Editha after awakening from hor
blissful slumbers to find a burglar in her
very presence, and her conduct toward
the unwelcome intruder, never fails to
arouse the keenest kind of admiration.
In tho coolest, most self-collected manner
she confronts the burglar, and, through
her perfect indifference as to danger, wins
him over to her completely. All this
occurs in "Tho Burglar," a play that has
won its way into popular favor on account
of its sentiment. At opera house to
The threats of the organized anti-toll-gaters

The Ufo of a Clam?
The clam's body is completely en
shrouded in tho mantle, except for two
oponings, through ono of which tho foot
oan bo pushed out. Tbo other is for tho
siphon, or what is commonly known as
the "ueok" of tho clam. In some ro
spects tho olam may bo better off than
wo aro, for ho has n little brain in his
foot and also a gland for secreting
strong fibers. With this ho spins n bys
sns by which ho can attach himself to
whntever he likes. Ho does not even
havo to soarch for his food, but waits
for it to como to him. Ho makes a bur
row in tho mud or sand, nttaahing him
self to tho bottom by the byssns. Then
ho thrusts his siphon up through tho
mud and water until it roaches the sur
face. The siphon is mado up of two
tubes, tho water flowing in through ono
and out through tho other.
When tho inflowing current, laden
with minute plants and animals, reach
es tho gill chamber, soma of theso are
sifted out aud rotainod for food, while
the water and wasto matter flow out
through tho other tube. Margarot W.
