TAFT WOULD PAY MILITIA.
Goe on Record In Favor of Bill Now
President Tnft hns gone on record
in favor of the militia pay bill. In a
letter to John V. Klrby of New York
the president snld:
"I am heartily In favor of legislation
along the line of the bill now before
congress, for I believe It will result in
greater eillclcncy of the organized mili
tia as a national asset. I nm advised
that practically all differences tx-lweon
the war department and the represent
atives of the national guard with re
spect to the legislation have been satis
t" Th Retreat From Moscow.
Napoleon's army for the Invasion of
Russia numbered over 400,000. Only
20,000 returned. During the retreat
thousands of horses lay groaning on
the route, while thousands of naked
wretches were wandering like spec
ters who seemed to have no sight or
reuse and who only kept reeling on till
, frost, famine or the Cossack lanco put
! nn end to their power of motion. In
I that wretched state no nourishment
' could have saved them. Innumerable
togs crouched by the bodies of their
I former masters, looking at their faces
J and howling their hunger and their
, loss, llcsldes their suffering from the
1 cold nnd for the want of food, they
were assailed on nil sides, not only by
Russian soldiers, but by peasants
through whose country they passed.
Altogether, Napoleon's retreat from
Moscow was n complication of misery,
of cruelty, of desolntlon and of dis
order that can never have been ex
ceeded In the history of mankind.

Here Is a strange yet absolutely true
story, in which a clock plays a myste
rious part; It was a small American
tlmepieco which Btood on a mantel
piece in a sitting room in a Liverpool
builder's home. At 11:30 one morning
the timepiece fell from the mantelpiece
to the lloor. When picked up It was
found to bo quite uninjured and still
going, as if nothing unusual had hap
pened. There Beemed to be absolutely
no reason why it should have fallen,
but an hour later when the builder
came homo to his midday meal he re
marked that at 11:30 he fell from the
top of a building, but happily without
sustaining any injury. His wife Uien
described how the clock had fnllcn at
the same time and the couple ponder
In vain over the curious and utterly
inexplicable coincidence. Liverpool
Broken China Roused Him,
When Canon Rnwnsley was collect
ing information in tho lake district
nbout Wordsworth, ho came upon nn
old man who hnd boon a servant nt
Rydal Mount. This whilom retainer
told many interesting stories.
Wordsworth, It seemed, was very
absentmlndcd. He nhvays forgot tho
"I'd goa," tho old man remarked, "to
study door and hear him n-mumblln'
away to 'sself.
" 'Dinner's ready, sir,' I'd ca' out,
but he'd go a-mumbllng on like n deaf
man. ya sec. And sometimes Mrs.
Wudsworth Mid say: 'Gon and brelt
n bottle, or lot a dish fall, just outside
his door In passage.' Eh, dear, that
maistly wad bring him out, wad that.
It was nobbut that a- wad, howivvor.
For, ye knn, he wn? a very careful
man and he couldn't do with brekking

One of the Family.
James Seymour, the artist, wan born
in Ijonrion In 1702. He displayed a
fondness for drawing nnd painting In
boyhood and subsequently gained co
lebrlty by his skill In designing horses.
Once tho proud Duke of Somerset em
ployed Seymour to paint a room nt his
peat in Sussex with the portraits of his
running horses, naving admitted tho
artist to his table, he one day drank to
"Cousin Seymour, your health."
The painter replied, "My lord, I real
! ly believe that I have the honor of be
' lng of your grace's family."
I This hurt tho pride of the duke so
much that he rose from the tnble and
ordered his stewnrd to pay Seymour
i nnd dismiss him. Finding, however,
that no ono In England could complete
I tho pictures begun, he condescended to
send for his cousin. The painter re
Bponded to the message In these words:
"My lord, I will now provo that I am
of your grace's family, for I won't
Ths Second Foot of Water.
"Second foot," as defined by tho
United States geological survey, in nu
abbrevntion for cubic foot per second
and Is the unit for the rate of dis
charge of water flowing In a stream
one foot wide, one foot deep, at a rate
of ono foot per second. It is generally
used as a fundamental unit In meas
urements of stream How.
"Second feet per square mile" Is the
average number of cubic feet of wa
ter flowing per second from each
square mile of area drn-lnod. on the as
sumption that tho run off Is distributed
uniformly both ns regards time and
An "acre foot" is equivalent to 43,
CC0 cubic feet and Is the quantity re
quired to cover nn acre to the depth
of one foot. Tho term Is commorily
used in connection with storage for ir
rigation work. One second foot flow
equals 7.48 United States gallons a

There is always more or less talk
current about abolishing position and
dispersing pelf. The trouble is to
know just where to begin the destruc
tive reconstruction nnd to And reform
ers who are willing themselves to bo
reformed. An English great lady was
once entertaining the Lnbor member
of parliament, Henry Broadhurst, tho
Duke of Argyle nnd others nt her coun
try sent. She was a strong Liberal,
nnd one evening inveighed ngalnst the
house of lords. It would be swept
away If It did not reform, she said
"Yes," agreed Broadhurst, "and how
will you like that, Mrs. I'.t"
"Lady r., if you please, sir," In
stantly corrected Brondhurst's hostess,
drawing herself up haughtily.
