GRASS PLOTS VS. MANUAL
TRAINING.
The action of the board of school in
spectors in abandoning the addition
which that body ordered to the Madi
son school for the accommodation of
the increase which has long been in
progress of the number of high school
pupils that demand manual training, ir,
not to be explained on any state of
facts of which the general public has
any knowledge. It seems, on its face,
to be utterly inconsistent with the
most urgent demands of our educa
tional interests, and to have been de
termined on chiefly, if not entirely,
through purely sentimental considera
tions.
The Globe has been insistent for
an indefinite period past on securing
increased facilities for the Mechanic
Arts high school. That demand found
partial recognition in the decision to
erect an addition to the Madison
school. No sooner is that course de
termined on. however, than a number
of objectors are heard, according to
whose chief argumennt it is infinitely
better that the grass plots surrounding
the Madison school should be preserv
ed than that the children of our people
seeking mechanical training should
have the necessary facilities placed at
their disposal through the school es
tablished for that express purpose.
It might very properly b« asked
what the people who caused the school
board to rescind its former action or
their particular views of the situation
had to do with the matter anyway. A3
long as their children in the grades
are securing proper training through
the Madison school their legitimate de
mands in connection with the schools
are met. There was no -representative
at that meeting of the children who
will be deprived of what their parents
deem the most value in the educational
system of St. Paul. It resulted in
breaking up the continuity of the great
work which the Mechanic Arts school
was established to promote. It leaves
no provision whatever for those who
may desire to send their children to
that school in the future, save the ut
terly inadequate and ill-adapted re
sources in that behalf of the Central
high school.
It appears as if the board of school
inspectors did not consider itself as
having control over its own property,
since it is the argument as to the un-
Bightliness of the proposed addition,
and the possible injury to adjacent
property which seems to have out
weighed the consideration of the pub-
He demand that every facility shall be
fiven for the development of manual
training in our schools.
If the affairs of the city schools are
>9 be conducted according to the aes-
thetic needs and understanding of In
fluential citizens, rather than on the
plan of giving the taxpayers the most
that can be given them in the way of
education for their children in return
for the moneys they pay in taxes, there
will be a good many more opportuni
ties offered to the school board to re •
scind action that may be taken by
that body in the future, with the ed
ucational gain of the community alone
in the minds of its members. It is
such action as that taken by the school
board with reference to the Mechanic
Arts school which, in the past, has
brought most of the trouble on our lo
cal educational interests and which has
had so deterrent and discrediting an
influence on the reputation of the city
as an educational center.
The fact that it is possible on ar
guments of the character advanced in
this instance to induce a rescinding of
its former action by the present board
will certainly not promote the ability
of that body in the future to do the
business which it is entrusted with
according to its own understanding of
what is right and expedient.

CRUSADE AGAINST KISSING.
Eight young men and six young
women who are attending the North
western university, Evanston, 111., have
formed an organization which is
known to the vulgar world as "The
Kiss Shunners." As the name indi
cates with considerable directness, the
society is going to discontinue kissing
and is preparing to pledge itself to
urge others to discontinue the labial
method of expressing affection. Wheth
er these youthful persons have had
too many kisses or regard the lip-to-lip
performance as a disease-spreader is
not plainly stated, but that they desire
the practice stopped is so "nominated
in the bond."
At the last meeting of the club the
following resolution was offered and
referred to a committee overwhelming
ly in favor of the abolition of oscula
tion either for pleasure, profit or pas
time:
Realizing that kissing is demoralizing
and detrimental, we, the undersigned
.students of Northwestern university,
.solemnly swear that we will refrain from
all kissing- and that we will try to per
suade others to likewise refrain.
These coming wise men and women
also propose to add perplexity to the
situation by wearing a "badge indicat
ing their attitude on the question. It
will therefore be understood when one
meets a girl with a badge on her right
arm that she does not desire to be
kissed going through a tunnel or any
where else. And, reasoning to the
contrary, it will be taken, in Evanston
at least, that when a girl does not
wear a badge she is out to be kissed at
any favorable opportunity. But doubt
ful things are uncertain. Some of these
badgeless girls will get kissed under a
misapprehension and there will be ar
rests and heaj-tburnings and explana
tions which do not explain.
When all is said and done, the old
way will be most popular and will
therefore probably stand the test of
time. If a young woman is willing to
be kissed, and there is nobody looking,
she will continue to be kissed in spite
of all the anti-osculation societies
formed now or hereafter. Of course,
there are places where it is unsafe to
indulge in the practice. One of these
is in a row boat. In such cases the
wise young man will wait until he gets
ashore. The foolish, impetuous young
man should not go out in row boats
either with or without young women.
There may be much or little said as
to the responsibility for the latest
shocking disaster at Johnstown;
but there does not seem to be many
who are concerning themselves about
the way to avoid such disasters in the
future, which are a disgi-ace, not to the
mining pursuit alone, but to civiliza
tion.
TIRESOME ROOSEVELT TRASH.
Indications are not wanting that the
long-suffering American people are
doomed to a wearisome lot of drivel
from Oyster Bay during the summer.
The family of Theodore Roosevelt had
hardly got settled at Sagamore hill
before inane dispatches began pouring
out to the rest of the country from that
rural retreat in regard to the doings of
the Roosevelts, little and large.
We were first thrilled by the an-
nouncement that the president and
Kermit had met on the lawn in that
new style of wrestling match known
as jijitsu, and after a bout of some
minutes his excellency had been
thrown by his strip of a boy. As a
matter of fact, there was no wrestling
match at all worthy of the name.
Papa and Kermit had such a scuffle as
farmer boys frequently have; papa
slipped on the dewy grass and fell and
Kermit fell on top of him. A day or
two later came the tearful announce-
ment that Kermit wouldn't have to
worry through the summer without a
collie pup after all, as some kind
hearted man somewhere, possibly with
one eye on a consulship, was going to
present the youngster with a fine dog
to replace the one which died just as
the Roosevelts were about to leave
Washington.
Right behind this came another
startling story that the president had
got Into the habit afternoons of going
out and mounting his horse and mak
ing him stand on his hind legs for min
utes at a time. It is expected that
about tomorrow a telegram will come
along that Miss Alice has a hang nail
on her right forefinger which might
develop into blood poisoning if she
were not such a strenuous young worn»
an.
But how absolutely inexcusably silly
all this trash is. Why cannot the
Roosevelts be permitted to spend their
summer in a quiet way without being
constantly hashed and rehashed as
news items? They cannot enjoy hav
ing their minor affairs exploited in the
newspapers and certain it is that 90
per cent of the reading public doea
not care to waste its time on such tom
myrot. Somebody can do a great pub
lic service by cutting the wires to Oys

IS A FROG A FISH?
The condolences of the civilized world
are due to the Dominion of Canada.
Canada has a headache, a backache
and is red-eyed from loss of sleep.
Canada hasn't been worrying over
King Edward's illness or the tariff on
lumber or excessive rains or the On
tario peach crop or any other ordinary
thing.
Its trouble is over that paramount
question as to whether a frog is a fish
or game and the ruction is reaching
such proportions that it is feared it
will break up families and schools.
Money is at the bottom of the trouble
and the United States is a sort of
accessory after the fact, for it is this
country's epicurean demand for frogs'
legs which has brought the cloud over
the proudest of the British colonies.
Many people north of the; 49th par
allel have been making a fat living by
hunting and killing frogs to supply the
markets of New York, Chicago and
elsewhere. The business has become
so large that the Dominion marine and
fisheries department a few days ago
reached a sort of paroxysm of alarm
lest the Canadian frog of commerce
should wake up some morning to find
that he hadn't a leg left to stand on.
So the body, impelled by duty and a
love for frogs, got busy with an idea to
fix a close season for frogs. Then it
■was that some bewhiskered wise man
arose to plague the department with
the query, is a frog a fish or game?
If the decision is reached that the
frog is a fish, the body can under the
laws institute a close season and end
the traffic in legs. If the conclusion is
reached that the frog is game, then
the department has nothing to do with
the question and each of the provinces
can pursue its own sweet will as to
the catching and selling of the edible
amphibian.
When it is decided who is to render
the ultimatum it might be well to turn
over to him or it that other question as
to whether an egg is fish, flesh or foul.
That attorney who got beaten out
of his fees by his clients and had also
to pay the costs will probably conclude
that taking a case "on shares" is finan
cially sometimes no better than it is
morally.
Mr. Stringer advises well when he
says the supposed school superintend
entship disagreement should be allowed
to die out. The only criticism of Mr.
Stringer in this regard is that he is not
quite up to date in talking about the
dying out of that which was never
really alive.

A SUMMER NIGHT.
The sun, in all its majesty, hath sunk
beneath the plain;
From prairies wide its light hath flown,
its shadows from the lane.
The day is gone, and stillness reigns
amid the earth and sky;
And through the misty night I hear the
owl's enchanting cry,
AVhile from the dreamy little brook that
winds across the lea
The vapors rise and dance around the
rushes in their glee.
The moon is glowing 'mid the stars, and
softly through the night
On fragrant prairies wrapped in green
descends its silver light.
And as the scent of flowers wild is waft
ed through the gloom,
I love to wander through the night and
breathe the sweet perfume.
How sweet it is, when all our cares have
vanished with the day.
To breathe the balmy air, and rest among
the shadows gray:

THE RECEPTION OF GENIUS IN DIFFERENT LOCALITIES.
*i^ig£s
In Illinois.
AT THE G^RA^D OPERA HOUSE.
In the log's of ' Miss Percy Ha swell
and her corhpariy, lovers of summer
stock are fulty compensated by the en
gagement of. thfl Frawley company,
which beganj s^t Jthe Grand last night.
The 'Frawl<?ys," M as their friends ar.*
wont to ap^k of them, are not un
known to St. p^ul, and perhaps this
was responsible^n a measure for tho
almost vociferous ovation tendered
Miss Mary V,an puren and her support
during the scenes attendant upon a.
certainly superb,, presentation of Sar
dou's "Madame Sans Gene." The enly
disappointment was that Manager
Frawley was not in person to share in
the ovation given.
For a play so prolific in scenes and
dialogue, whose priceless worth would
be sadly marred by injudicious han
dling and faulty declamation, hesita
tion must have attended the selection
of "Madame Sans Gene" as the open
ing play of the Frawley company's en
gagement in St. Paul, yet .it was a
happy thought, and one that the audi
ence at the Grand last night gay? Miss
Van Buren due, credit for. It was a
magnificent interpretation.
A laundress yesterday and a duchess
today, it was an exacting character
that Sardou quickened into life when
he created Catherine Bubscher, or
Madame Sans Gene. Miss Van Buren,
who was in the title role last night,
satisfactorily meets its requirements.
Her interpretation, fraught with that
artless abandon, so characteristic of
the original, yet the woman always,
was a piece of work that demanded
admiration. ♦
A decidedly strong piece of work was
the Napeoleon of Alex Kearney. His
articulation at the start was slightly
faulty, but it was ably compensated
for in the later scenes, where the per
sonality of the Corsican is so strongly
shown. His make-up was excellent.
The scene at the door of the em
press' bed chamber, the many moods
that history has clothed the man in,
each was given portrayal in a manner
decidedly meritorious.
Satisfactory in every way is the
Marshal Lefebre of Frederick Mon
tague; likewise the Fouche of Wallace
Shaw. The latter gentleman is ex
tremely clever, dividing dry humor
with philosophy in a manner that mer
its mention. His conception of the
part is admirable.
Miss Christine Hill as Princess Eliza
and Miss Eleanor Gist as Queen Caro
line of Naples gave characterizations
that were in every way satisfying.
"Madame Sans Gene is well staged.
The costumes are particularly well se
lected, being fully in keeping with the
period of the story. One little thins,
however, quite noticeable, is the de
cided freshness of the soldiers' uni
forms. The grime of action is not ap
parent in their make-up.
Miss Van Buren and her support had
to answer to numerous curtain calls
last night. The audience was exact
ing in this respect and insisted on an
answer to every call.
LITTLE KNOWN OF LORD
KITCHENER'S PERSONALITY
Is a Man of Iron, but Endowed With
Vivid Imagination.
Lord Kitchener is one of the few
great public men of the time who has
been able to keep his personal charac
teristics out of print:
A character sketch of Lord Kitche
ner by one one who knows him would
be worth reading.
The career of Lord Kitchener is
lacking in episodes which throw the
limelight of publicity upon his per
sonal qualities. The man is known
only by the broad results of his work.
His career has been illuminated at
long intervals by flashes of personal
character, such as his Quixotic venture
in going on leave from the British
army to fight for the Frene.i in IS7O,
and the dramatic splendor of the (Gor
don memorial service which he ar
ranged after his victory at Khartoum.
There is iron in Kitchener's charac
ter or he could never have done his
work. The strange sympathy which
sent him crusading under the colors of
France, in 1870, the gorgeous dramatic
fancy which stage-managed the Gor
don memorial service as the crown and
climax of the Soudan campaign are
proof that iron is nat the only element
in the nature of the man of Khartoum
and Pretoria. Lord Kitchener's per
sonality is a closed book, and the
world knows him only by the work
which has lettered its results on the
covers of his character. —Toronto Tele

to earn a f/vv coppers for himself by sell

money as you do if I bought some papers
and came to 1 this corner to sell them^'
"Why do you want to sell papers?"
"I'm tired, of being idle."
"Well." said the philosophic little news
boy, with a serious air, "dyer think yer
can hold thirty-six capers in one hand
lick threee or four boys biggerun yerself
with the other hand, while yer keeps two
more off with yer feet ,and yells 'Evenin'

"No-o, I don't," replied the well-dress
ed boy.

NEW YORK CITY COSSIP
WOMAN ORGANIZES BOY PATROL
FOR PLAY GROUND GARDEN.
Schwab Joins Automobile Club and
Gives Mile of Steel Road —Miss Hel
en Gould Gives Generously to the
Irving ton-on-the-Hudson Library.
NEW YORK, July 13.—Mrs. Herbert
Parsons, nee Elsie Clews, who is one
of the school inspectors, is responsible
for the most original experiment in
the playground scheme that the city
has so far tried to better the condi
tion of the children of the tenement
house districts during the hot weath
er.
It is at Mrs. Parsons' suggestion
that half an acre of De Witt Clinton
park, which lies between Fifty-second
and Fiftyrfourth streets and Tenth
and Eleventh avenues, will be plowed
up and fertilized, and fifty children of
the neighborhood will take practical
gardening lessons, raising such vege
tables and plants as may repay their
efforts before the new school year be
gins.
The project was broached to Park
Commissioner Wilcox, and found a
ready indorsement. It was turned
over to Assistant Superintendent Mur
phy, and the plan was to have the
ground in readiness last wisek when
the Hudson bank playground, which
occupies a large share of the park
was scheduled to open. But though
Miss Blair and Miss Cafferata, two
kindergarteners, sent by the board of
education, were on hand promptly, and
a man with a plow and a wagonload
of farming implements arrived on the
scene and remained for an hour or
two, nothing was done to redeem the
spot from its stony barrenness. The
children that hung around, eager to
take possession, made miniature gar
dens with sticks as trowels, but were
compelled to return to their homes in
disappointment. Some hitch in the
order from headquarters, which no
body could explain, had caused the
delay.
Hudson Bank last year was one of
the most successful playgrounds in the
city. Four hundred children daily en
joyed its benefits, and not alone in tb«
gymnastic work of the boys, but in
basket making and paper-hat manu
facture, it took the lead. The Outdoor
Recreation league worked with the
board of education in its mainten
ance.
It is believed the place will be in
thorough working order by the begin
ning of this week, when the 'little
farmers may go to work in earnest.
In order to protect the farming plot,
which is to be fenced in, Mrs. Parsons
will organize twenty-five boys into a
police patrol and have them mount
guard over their property. Each will
wear a button of the National Plant,
Flower and Fruit guild.
Schwab Joins Auto Club.
"When Charles M. Schwab, president
of the United States Steel corporation,
parcnasej a foreign motor car a iVw
months go he became a memCe'. of
the Automobile Club of America.
Mr. Schwab has had an excellent
opportunity to study road construc
tion. His machine broke- all records
between Philadelphia and Atlantic
City and put a premium on poultry
and dogs along the route.
When it became known that the Au
tomobile club had appointed ' a com
mittee to inspect a new form of road
construction, where steel was largely
employed, Mr. Schwab was much in
terested. The other day he asked Jef
ferson Seligrnan, chairman of the Steel
road committee, how he was progress
ing.
'Can't get the steel," responded Mr.
Seligman, discontentedly. "It has to
be rolled in a special shape, and no
mill will undertake the work."
"I will furnish it," said Mr. Schwab,
and Mr. Seligman saw an end to his
perplexities.
But Mr. Schwab went further. It
was an agreeable surprise to the mem
bers of the Automobile club to learn
that he would donate enough steel
for an entire mile of road. The ma
terial will be forthcoming within six
months.
Gen. Leroy Stone, designer of the
proposed road, has already conferred
with the Steel corporation's experts
on the details of construction. Presi
dent Jacob Cantor, of the borough of
Manhattan, has directed Chief Engi
neer Olney to recommend suitable lo
cations for sections of the read. It is
intended to place one in the heavy
trucking region down town, another on
a street of general travel and a third
on a suburban earth road.
Miss Gould Gives to Library.
The new public library in the town
hall at Irvington-on-the-Hudson,
which was erected by contributions of
the wealthy summe? residents of that
place, has been formally opened. Miss
Helen Miller Gould furnished the li
brary with fine furnishings and fur
niture at an expense of $10,000, while
R W. Guiteau gave $10,000 for the
books. In honor of the opening well
known women served tea in the build
ing. Miss Gould assisted to receive.
Divorce Court on British Plan.
Society is much interested in the
proposal to establish a divorce court
here on the lines of that tribunal which
is presided over by Sir Francis Jeune
in England. In London a division of
the supreme court is devoted to the
consideration of nothing but matrimo
nial cases, and divorce has become to
In Washington*
such an extent the fashion here in New-
York that there is more than enough
work for a tribunal which would deal
with naught but domestic troubles.
Until now only one day in each week
in the court known as "Special Term,
Part III.," has been devoted to divorce
litigation. But this has proved to be
altogether inadequate, and the only
remedy to be found for the existing
deadlock is the organization of a spe
cial court, the presiding judge of which,
becoming in time more familiar with
the divorce law and with matrimonial
differences, could dispose of this kind
of case with far more expediency and
satisfaction than at present.
No More "Car Ahead."
The board of aldermen passed an or
dinance this week providing that every
street car shall display on the outside,
in front and on top, a signboard an
nouncing its destination.
This insures that there will be no
more of the unceremonious dumping
out of passengers at the will of the
company. No longer will citizens have
to tolerate the one-time "car-ahead"
abuse. A violation of the ordinance by
the company subjects it to a penalty of
?100. Only in case of accident is the
company excused from complying with
the regulation.
The ordinance adopted was intro
duced by Aid. Sullivan, whose some
what similar ordinance introduced a
few weeks ago was declared by the
courts to be faulty in construction and
vague in intent. Corporation Counsel
Rives Had previously approved the pro
visions of the new ordinance.

avenue. The portion of the lot now
occupied by the Pabst hotel has been
leased for twenty-five years at an an
nual rental of $25,000, and the remain-
Ing portion has been purchased out

company and the George A. Fuller
company. The understanding is that
the new structure will be an office
building of probably twenty stories.
The basement and first floor will be
occupied by the New York Times,

THE SOMETHING THAT SOMEBODY
SAID.
Headaches and heartaches, and "blue"
days unending.
Grief, petulation, remorse and regret.
Off times we suffer, the whole of them
blending
Into a union of worry and fret.
Some for relief seek a potion from Bac
chus,
Through sleepless nights others toss in
their bed.
Ah, the lost faith, the vexations that
rack us,
AH due to something that somebody
said. "
Many tho morning, whose dawning is
gladness.
Warmed with faith's sunshine, resplen
dent with hone,
Grows through the afternoon clouded
with sadness, x
Dark'nir* with shadows the pathways
we^Tope;
Just because somebody, thoughtless, un
caring,
Sly tittle-tattle and gossip has spread—
Heavy's the burden that many are bear
ing,
AH due to something that somebody
said.
—Roy Farrel Greene, in Four Track News.
A PRAYER.
Grant us, O Lord, the grace to bear
The little pricking thorn;
The hasty word that seems unfair;
The twang of truths well worn;
The jest that makes our weakness plain;
The darling plan a'erturned;
The careless touch upon our pain;
The slight we have not earned;
The rasp of care. Dear Lord, today,
Lest all these fretting things
Make needless grief, or, give, we pray,
The heart that trusts ana sings.

YOUNG HERO IS BURP
SAVED SEVERAL LIVES IN THE
MINE AT JOHNSTOWN
List of Dead Placed at 114, Where It Is
Likely to Remain—Operations to Be
Resumed in the Mine This Morniny
—Two of the Men Rescued Alive Fri

JOHNSTOWN, Pa., July 13 —After a
sL n t SUltIOV hIS evenin^ with the four
state mine inspectors summoned here
RolV?nJ°. r°Ugh spection of the
Rolling Mill mine of the Cambria Steel
company today, James E Roderick!
chief of the state bureau of mine in
spection, dictated a notice to General
Manager C. S. Price, of the Cambria '
company, granting formal permission
to resume operations in all sections of
the mine except the Klondike in the
morning. The Klondike workings will
likely be closed for several days until
perfect security is assured through the
bratticing of openings and repairs ne
cessitated by the explosion.
Two more deaths of rescued victims
have occurred since last night. John
ohrand Yasante Sibolia expired at
the Cambria general hospital. These
men were among the six living last -
brought out of the mine the afternoon
of which four others have expired.
These deaths raise the total fatalities
to 114, although the company's records
have it one less.
**** ji ge.ne I rally regarded as certain
that the full extent of the disaster is
now known. **',
Most interest centered today in the
funerals which were scatered through
out the city.
Young Hero's Funeral.
The funeral of Mike Sabot, one of the
conspicuous self-sacrificing heroes of
the disaster, took place from St. Mary's
German Catholic church. The large
church was packed with friends and
those who did not know the little dead
Itory' otl h.h ° had,, heard the noble
story of his achievement which -
brought him glory, but only at the ex
pense of his life. Sabot was about sev
enteen years old. *"uui sev
He was a trap boy and knew the
mine "k« a book- He was out at the
mouth of one of the headings when the -
explosion came. He found himself un
scathed, and immediately rushed to the
rescue of the falling men beyond him.
He had dragged three into a working
that the after-damp had not rnached,
and to his help they owe their lives to
day Back he plunged into the mine
heading after more bodies. Faintness
overcame him and he toppled over and
died. When found his hands were still
clutching the clothing of one man in a
manner which showed the boy was in
the act of-dragging him out to safety
when overcome.
Mike's coffin was draped in pink and
a profusion of handsome flowers were
strewn on top. As the cortege moved'
away from the church there was not a
dry eye in the crowd which stood abou<
the men with bared heads.
IN COREA THE MEN ARE
AS BEASTS OF BURDEM. <
In That Country Human Beings Are
Pack Horses and Wear Saddles.
The returned missionary had been
talking Corea for an hour as he walked
with a friend through the park. They
finally halted on the edge of the drive
and a procession of automobiles, red
and white "devils," whizzled past them.
"They had nothing like that when.
I left this country. "You know, I've
been gone seven years.'
"A great improvement," responded
the friend; "another step toward the
higher civilization."
"I was about to make the point my
self," said the misisonary, "and it will
apply to Corea. Until they improve
their means of transportation the little
kingdom of the east cannot hope to be
civilized. With them man is still the
chief beast of burden. From the time
a male of the lower class can walk,
his back is acquainted with the wood
en pack saddle, and the men who make
a business of it form a strong guild.
"Corean horses or ponies are miser
able creatures. They bite and kick
with no provocation whatever, and no
amount of training will make them
trustworthy. No wonder that they are
cruelly treated by the natives.
"Corean bulls have an easy time of
it, owing to certain religious ideas.
From the day of his birth he is the
family pet, and he never becomes too" k
strong and unruly to be an unsafe
companion for children. When a calf,
an iron or bone ring is inserted in his
nose, and by this he is guided when *
used as a beast of burden.—N. Y. Trib

EACH NATION LAUGHS IN
A DIFFERENT MANNER.
And Some There Are Who Never Do
More Than Titter Cynically.
A student of ethnology was consider
ing the laughs of different peoples.
"Certain savages in the heart of Afri
ca never laugh at all," said he. "They
grin, that is all; and this lack of the
quality of laughter is a symptom of
their low mentality. Beasts never
laugh, either.
"The Chinaman has no hearty bursts
of laughter in his repertory. He titter*
cynically—titters over the misfortune
of an enemy or the elopment of the
wife of a friend. He cannot laugli.
When he is delighted, or amused, or
happy, he just looks calm.
"The Frenchman has a reserved
laugh, one which he holds well in hand.
Being a great stickler ror dignity, he
is afraid that a loud and honest laugh
would injure his deportment, would
demean him in the eyes of the world.
You will not hear much male laughter
in Paris, though it is true that the
women there have a cultivated, musical
'ha-ha-ha' that they get off in the
cafes when they wish to attract some
body's attention.
"The German's laugh is cavernous.
It comes from far down somewhere in,
his stomach. The laugh of the Irish
man is, upon the contrary, rather so
prano; not a stomach laugh, not even
a chest laugh, but a head one. ♦
"The English, and the Americans
laught the best. Their mirth is so nat
urally and heartily and musically ex
pressed that you cannot but rejoice on
hearing it. The Indians of America.
however, laugh very little."—Detroit
News-Tribune.
ANIMALS WHO ATTEND
CHURCH, RAIN OR SHINE
Dove Which for Years Has Gone to
Sunday School and Enjoyed It.
There Is a dove in Lewistown, Me.,
which has been a regular attendant at
church for eight or ten years, being
attracted by the music, of which it is
very fond. After church the dove is '
taken to the Sunday school class by a
boy, and seems to enjoy the proceed
ings. Unlike many churchgoers, the
weather makes no difference to tha
dove, but every Sunday, summer or
winter, ft is at its post on the organ.
There Is a church bell on Salt Lake
City's east side that seems to have a
peculiar attraction for the dogs in tho
vicinity. Each Sabbath morning, as
soon as the bell begins its noise, many
of the canines in the neighborhood
prick up their ears and start in single
file for the church. Arriving there,
they array thmselves in front and start
a yowling obligate This beautiful vo
cal effort is persevered in so long as
the bell keeps going, and when it ptops
the dogs feel that their duty has been
done, and, dropping their ears a'ltd
voices, start home again.
