Private Water System.
For the last eight months S. E.
Hunt has been at work drilling a
well on his property in the south end.
At one time he had 200 feet of water
in the well but soon struck a crevice
and the water leaked out. He con
tinued drilling until he struck a good
flow of water at a depth of 40 7 feet
and it is believed but for the crevice
he would have an artesian well. Con
stant pumping at the rate of 20 gal
lons a minute has failed to lower
the water. Engineers are to make
an examination for the prospect of
artesian water. The well was com
pleted last week at a cost of $1124
and now Mr. Hunt is going to build
a reservoir and put in a gasoline en
gine and windmill plant to supply
water for several houses which he
owns in that part of town.

Power of a Picture.
We gazed at the famous picture of
"The Doctor" in silence that could be
felt, and I tell you it fairly made me
hold my breath and a lump come in
my throat as I looked first at the suf
fering child and then at the kind doc
tor, with his grave face, and then at
the father and mother in the back
ground, and. as for Smart. 1 don't mind
telling you I saw the water in his eyes,
and presently a great big tear rolled
down his cheek as he said:
"Isn't that wouderful? I suppose as
a tailor I should be looking at the
style of the M. D.'s clothes; but, man.
I'm human, and when there Is a pic
ture that appeals like that to the great
heart of humanity, why, I just forget
all about my trade and think only of
my humanity. Come on," he added.
"I can't stay longer to look at that,
for it reminds me too much of a little
one I lost. Here you are," he said —
"here's something more in our line.

A Picture of Ibsen.
In Schurinann's "Secrets de Cou
lisses" is a picture of Ibsen at the
summit of his fame. When Ibsen had
completed a new play the Copenhagen
| newspapers announced the event with
i a great flourish of trumpets, and
' added: "The master will deposit hia
i manuscript at the National theater at
!10 o'clock tomorrow morning." At
that hour the road between Ibsen'?
! bouse and the theater was lined with
j people. The great man appeared with
; his precious roll of paper neatly tied
• up. As it slipped through into the
; letter box the public gave a great
shout. The philosopher acknowledged
j the demonstration with a grave bow
I and retired within doors with the con
| sciousness of having performed a
| glorious mission. Every one of his
ordinary acts In public was accom
' panied by something of the sort, and
; even when he sat the curtains of the

1 features might be visible to his ad
She Was Used to Storms.
The storm burst forth in all its fury.
Great trees were torn up bodily by
i the roots, houses were unroofed or
even wrenched from their foundations,
\ women shrieked and rushed with their
' children to places of fancied safety,
while strong men turned pale and
vainly attempted to appear unconcern
cd. But in the midst of all this fury
of nature one little womnn snt cool,
calm and collected. She did not appear
to notice that anything out of the or
dinary was happening. Now and then
she raised her eyes from the book
that seemed to absorb her, glanced
around the room nnd went back to the
literary love. Afterward we learned
that she was a teacher in a primary
I school and that she hadn't heard or
! felt anything she wasn't accustomed
| to.—Cleveland Plain Dealer.
A shark is very tenacious of life,
and Dr. Gunther, the ichthyologist.
has pointed out in one of his contri
butions to the literature of his subject
that "wounds affect fishes generally
much less than higher vertebrates. A
' Greenland shark continues to feed
i while his head is pierced by a harpoon
! or by a knife as long as the nervous
center is not touched."
A Norwegian antarctic explorer, H. J.
Bull, gives a startling word picture of
a shark's tenacity of life. This man
eater was caught at the Iceland cod
fishery. His liver, heart and internal
arrangements were removed so as to
put a period to bis career, and the thus
mutilated body was then cast into the
sea. He simply gave a leisurely wag
of his tail and swam rapidly out of
