n Gas Engines In High Altitudes.
A gas engine was erected several
thousand feet above sea level. The en
r, gine did not give the power expected
and it was oncluded that the losis was
due to the altitude of the station. Uipon
Investigation of the theoretical and
practical considerations involved it was
found that there is a loss of about I
N per cent of the indicated horsepower
for each 1,U00 feet of increase in eleva
tion. The effect with a low ratio of
compression is slightly less than with

S CHANCE FORECASTS.
Writers of Old Who Dimly Pointed to
Modern Inventions.
0* Chance phrases in the literary works
: of other days describe with uncanny
0" exactness inventions of far later times
' For instance, we find in the "Prolu
,_ lions" of Strada the Roman, which
were published in the year 1617, what
I1 might be held to embody a crude de
scription of wireless telegraphy.
5. 8trada represents two friends as car
rying on a correspondence by means of

virtue in It that, if It touches two nee
. ies when one of the needles begins to
move, the other, although at ever so
great a distance. moves at the same
Is time and in the same manner."
In 1874 Robert Hooke published a
work wherein he observed that as
glases improve the vision so ways
Smight be found to improve our other
a semes. "It is not impossible," says he.
S"to hear a whisper a distance of a fur
I lug, and perhaps the nature of the
thing would not make it Impossible al
though that furlong should be ten times
multiplied." This seems to be a tair
. forecast of the telephone
'* In "nliver's Travels" Swift causes

likewiss discovered the two lesser stars
' or matellites which revolve about Mars."
This has been held to constitute a sa
tie on sham soelence. Nevertheless
P oAsaph Hall a few years ago
dicovered the two tiny esatellites.
It was more than 1,7t00 years ago
that Luelan gave an account of the

M. Blanc will permit you to play any

6,000 francs at roulette or 20,000 francs
at trentme et quarante. Then you must
begin over again, for it is quite clear
that if one were permitted to double t

Thus it happens that M. Blanc, who

A FIGHT
FOR A WIFE

n erary |'ress
S "1 dunno muth about romance. as
Ni they calls it. but I reckon 1 shaved it
mighty clus when I got my wife. Oneu
day, when I was a young feller of
twenty-two. I seen a gal over on t'other
n. side of the mountings that jest filled
the bill. I made up to her and was
talkin' 'bout b'ars and wildcats a:tnd
n. sich when her mother steps In and sez:
"'Stranger. mebbe yo' are ua:rtinh
to take my gal away fur a wife?'
"'I'm reckonin' to consider that I
would.' 1 replies.
"'Then I'll blow the horn fur her p"'o
to cumn outer the woods and Itll yo'
what is what:'
"She blowed and blowed. and bi'lby
the old man appeared. lie was a
powerful man. and he didn't look gotod
Snatured. His name was Itabbit. anil
arter lookii' me over he sez:
"'Stranger. It s got to be a mighty
good man who, takes my darter nue
away fur his wife. How fur kint any
body h'ar yo' holler?'
"'Two miles, if the wind is right.'
sez I.
"'And about yo'r jumpin'?'
' "'It's clus to eight feet when I don't
slip.'
"'1erv yo' ever dun any climbin' ?
"'I hey. I've climbed the tallest tree
' in sight of these yere Cumberland
mountings.'
"'Andt the number of b'ars and will
cats what yo've slain?' he goes on.
seemin' to want to pick a furse with
me.
"'They'd purty nigh fill yo'r cabin.'
sez I, feelin' a leetle riled at the way
he spoke.
" 'Well,' sez he. arter stoppin' to con
sider a bit. 'nobody kin take that gal
away jest bekase he kin hoot or climb
or kill varmints. lie's got to lay nl'
on my back in a fa'r fout. I'll gin you
a week to think it over. If yo' want
the gal yo' must crin back and tackle
me, and I'm tellin' yo' I'm a bad crit
ter as long as I've got one foot on the
airth.'
"I went away feelin' sort o' cast
down. but the mo' I thought of it the
mo' I wanted the gal Sue fur my wife.
That night I made up my mind that
I'd try fur her, and next day I went
back to the cabin. HIer pop was thar
and walkin' around and feeliu' power
ful peart.
"Thar was a cl'ar space in the front
of his cabin." said the old man. "and
when the gal and her mother had cum
r outdoahs we threw off our coats and
begun bizness. I was accounted a
powerful hand on a wrassle. but that
man was also a powerful critter, and
I reckoned I'd her to her help from
the Lawd to gain the victory. It was
10 o'clock in the mawnin' when we
begun, and the clock was jest strlkin' 1
when I flopped him on his back. That
spot on the ground looked as if fo'ty
hawgs had bin rootln' it up fur a
week,. and he was so beat out he could
hardly speak. Mo' than twenty times
in them three hours that critter had
me almost dun fur, but I'd send up a
sort of prayer and git a new hold. and
at last I fetched him. When he was
able to talk he riz up and took my
hand and sea:
"'Stranger, It was a far wrassle.
and I've been flopped. I wouldn't 'a be
lieved yo' could hey dun it, but yo'
did, and I'm sayin' yo' ar' a parutty 1
good man. Howsumever, it ain't over
yit Yo've got to lick me to sit Sue. I
and I know you kin' never do it. We'll
take three days to rest up. and then I
yo' kin cum back and tackle me."' "
"And did you go" I asked uas the I
old man made a long pause.
"Fur sanh." he replied. "I was I
mighty sore and lame, but I knowedl
he would be as bad off. Besides, that I
gal Sue had booted fur me when It
flopped her pop. and I knowed by that a
she was with me and would hope fur
me to come out on top. In three days
I went back to bey it out. The critter
was a-lookln' fur me and glad to see
me.
"'How's it to be?" sea L
"'A fa'r tout,' sez he, 'no throwin' I
rocks nor hittin' with clubs. WhoopI I
Cock-a-doodle-do!'
"Waal. we went at it. Sue and her a
maw was out thar as befo', and the gal
gin me a smileas I went in. It wasa I
rough and tumble font I jest knowed I
I'd got to do my revel best or go under. j
and I lost no chances. That font last
ed mighty nigh two hours, and two or I
three times I was almost on the p'lnt a
of lettin' go. Blmeby, howsumever, 1
seen that Babbit was gettin' tired out. I
and the gal clapped her hands and I
sicked me on. Ten minis arter that I I
had him whopped. That wasn't no
mistake about It. bekase he rin up and 5
se to me:
"'Zeb White. I'm a whopped man.
and that gal is yo'rs. I didn't believe t
thar was a critter on these mountings a
as could make me hoot, It yo' dun It.
And now when do yo' want the gal?'
"'Right now. I reckon.' sea I.
"'Ain't it purty sudden?' t
"'Not so very. bein' as she's ready I
to go.' a
"'Then. maw. bring out the broom
stick and let 'em jump over it, and it a
they want to be married by a preacher
they kin do it sum other time.' "
"Andt you took the girl home?" It
asked. 2
"Sartinly." replied Zeb. "Yes. sah. d
took her right home with :'e. with her I

A MOONSHINE

"It was ten or twelve years ago when
our member of the legislachur turned
,t agin moonshine whisky.
r "That meant that somebody else
d must be elected in his place, and what
i did the pesky people aruund yere do
i but cum to me and want me to stand.
They cum to my cabin a dozen at a
time, and they shook hands and called
me an honest man and all that, and the
Smo' I hung back the mo' they wanted
me to run. When they got me into a
'I tight co'ner I says:
"'I can't skassly read, and I can't
skassly write, and yo' all know that
' I can't get up before that legislachur
and speak ten words, and what good
1 could 1 do down to Nashville?'
'l They purtended to give in at that.
but what did the critters do but put
y me up to be voted fer when the time
le cum. and the fust thing I knowed I
was 'lected by 4tM majority. When I
heard the news I told It to the old wo
man and said:
" 'Waal, what am I gwine to do about
It? I've either got to hunt for a cave
and hole myself up or go to Nashville.'
" 'o'li go to Nashville,' she says.
"'And what'll yo' do?'
"'I'll go with yo'."
"Waal. we started off one day and
got aboard of the railroad kyitrs. I
was a little narvous, and the old w,
man braced her feet and hung on with
her hands, but we got along without
any calamity. In about an hour, whet
she dared to open her eyes and draw
her breath, she saps to me:
"'Zeb, how many houses have yo'
seen since we left homet'
"'More'n a hundred.' says I.
"'And how many people?'
"'More'n a thousand.'
"'Shoo! Then we must her got clear
around the world and back home
ag'in!'
"When we got down to Nashville
thar was so many people and so many
houses and such a movin' around thrat
I got the old woman behind me and
prepared to tight to the death, but not
a critter laid hands on us. Some of
t 'em laughed at my cowhide boots, and
some of 'em grinned at the old wo
man's poke bonnet, but everything was
good natured. We went to a tavern to
t git board, and when the old woman
sees the carpets on the floors, the stuft
cheers standin' around and the lookin"
glasses as big as a tablecloth she turns
a pale and puts her arms around me and
t says:
S"'Zeb, I kin see now why thar ar
so many sinners in this world, it a
, critter kin hey all these things, he
, don't keer a pesky drat about gwine
1 to heaven. I'm afeared we'll be bad
t 'nuff to steal hawgs in a week.'
"At the end of three days the legis
lachur opened, and I had to go up to
the statehouse. Lordy, stranger, but
a''d rather tackled three old b'ars at
once! I had goose flesh as I struck
k that crowd, and the old woman wasn't
I around to Incourage me. I went into
the statehouse with the crowd, and
SI'd jist found a seat when a feller
comes around and says:
" 'Excuse me, but ain't that a rifle
- r've got thar?
" 'Shbe be.' says I. 'It's a ride which
rhas killed mo' b'ars and wildcats than
r yo' could count in an hour, and she's
still ready fer the next varmint.'
I "'But yo' can't bring no deadly weep
SlIn' yere,' he goes on. This ain't no
Jumpin' match nor boas race, but the
legislaechubor of Tennessee.'
"I told him I knowed what I wasu.
Sbut that I should keep tight holt of
I that rifle till I knowed I was out of t
Sthe woods, and be goes away growlin a
I to hlsselL Mebbe It was half an hour e
t arter that when a teller stands up on
a platform and looks at me and says:
• "'Does the honorable men)ber from a
Beaver Core expect to find any b'ars a
on the fooh of this boase?
"'I ain't sayin' as I do,' I answers. t
'but it thar is a riot over moonshine o
whisky I might want sunthin' better
than a club!'
"Bimeby that same feller stood up II
agnl and says, as slek as yo' please: a
" 'MebbC the honorable member from b
I Beaver Core would like to be excused
I for balft an hour while he takes his
gInn home.'
"'Do any critter yere want to pick a e
tass with Zeb WhiteT says I as I
stands up. o
"Everybody laughs and claps hise
hands, but no one comes nigh me, and I
II pouts on my cap, shoulders my rifle (
and says as I walks out:
"'It's an onery crowd, and thar ain't c
a man among yo' who kin pull a rab- t]
bit out of a holler log!'
"I went straight to the tavern, and f
that I found the old woman shlverio'
and shakin' fur her life.
"'What's the matter?' says I.
""They've put piller cases trimmed f
with lace on our bed,' says she. 'and il
the gorgeousness of it will bring on g
heart disease! Zeb. fur the Lawd's c
sake. let's go back home!' b
"'But I'm here to watch moonshine. a
says I.
"'Never mind moonshine nur nothin
else on the face or this airth, but let's
be a-gittin'. This world aln't fur us.
Zeb. We is like two lost children wan- a
derln' through the woods and expectin p
to be eat ip any minit, and I'm so
skeart and flustrated that I shan't live 1
two days longer! Zeb, If yo' love me. y
come home!'
"'I'i1 do it,' says I. And she got on
her poke, packed our carpetlag, and
we was out of the town cf Nuashville
befo' sundown, never to go back." p
The Final Test,
"You are the first girl I have ever
really loved," be declared.
She looked doubtially at him for a
moment and then asked:
"Have you ever been seaslek'
"PYes." he replied. "but why do you
ask?"
"'ake me." she said. "At last I have
found an bonest man."-(~cago Re

Seetsmsn and Funerals.
Englishmen. says Ian Maclaren in
"Books and Bookmen." bear them
selves well at marriages, where Scots
men are at a disadvantage because'
the cautious Scotch eye is focused
upon an uncertain future. But the
Scotsman shines at a funeral as one
of the luxurles of life:
"Peter," says one mourner to hi
neighbor at the tail of a walking fti
neral. "div ye see Jamle Thompson
walking in the front side by side wi
the chief mourner and him no a drop
o' blood to the corpse?"

of Peter the Great, who was succeed

Gottorp, son of her younger sister.
Grand Duchess Ann. It is from this
czar. who reigned as Peter III.. that
the whole of the reigning house of Rus

In An Emergency - Telephone
THE TELEPHONE is the first to summon aid in a.-:
dent or emergency. It is invaluable at the time when asis'
ance is needed at once. Your first thought should be "TEL
EPHONE."
In every-day life, emergencies may arise that deman
quick and effective action. With a telephone in your home -°'
are prepared to send for assistance by the quickest route.
Doctor, druggist, police, fireman-all are within instar
reach by telephone. In fact, nearly everyone whom you w..
to reach quickly should have a telephone.
THE TELEPHONE HAS ALMOST COUNT
LESS USES IN "EMERGENCY VALUE."

When looking for a house with all modern improvements. see
that it's wired for electric light-it is as essential as the plumb
ing.
A House Wired for

If the house you like is not wired, ask the landlord to have
it wired-he will do it without fuss or bother to you, and at
moderate cost to him.
