Tricky Indian Mirchant rund I
J quisitiv Stranger.
I An Indian merthint InliPd to dis
pose of an old elephant and took It
to n fair. Ai soon ai he bad arrived
ha notice man who, without tax
ing word, bogan to waiit ound tr
aclmsl, examinlnt It attentively on all
Idea. The merchant became Tory
anxious, for he feared the man bad
found out that bla elephant was not
worth murh. He too blm xsido and
whispered In bia ear: "I nee a eas
terner coming. Do pot say & word
until I hare sold the beast and I will
rlT you CO rupeea." The man looked
at the merchant and wondering!?
complied with hla request. It hap
pened that the customer had more
money than sense, so that he was
easily taken In. When the bargain
was completed and the elephant led
way by Its new owner, the merchant
handed the CO rupee to the silent
man. saying: "Now, I want yon to
tell me how you discovered the defect
In bla left leg. I thought I had con
cealed It so skilfully." "I ha dl
coerd nothing," replied the stranger.
"It Is the first elephant I here, ever
seen, and J wanted to know which
was the head and which was the tail."
HIS FIRST LITERARY EFFORT.
Hot Likely Among the "Six Beat
Sellers" of That Year.
A party of friends bad gathered In
the author's bouse to congratulate htm
on the success of his new book. They
wer extravagantly enthusiastic, as
friends are apt to be on sikb oc
casions, and the young author was
swelling viftlbly. The author's mother
beamed. Finally one of the guests
turned to ber. "Tell me, did your son
show symptoms of literary genius at
an early age? I presume he did. and
you're got some baby effusion treas
ured away." "I hare the first letter
be ever wrote me." said the mother
smiling, "and maybe you'd call It his
first literary effort. Il was on a
visit to hi grandmother's and he had
ever visited her without me before.
Hat maybe you'd like to hear the let
ter." The guests chorused "Yes" eag
erly. The mother produced a crum
pled tnrelnpe. and paper and read
slowly; "Iar Us.ni The dogs Is
awful thick here. Your loving son."
Plant Like a Cam I.
The nearest thing to a camel
among jiUnts la a curious specimen
of the cucumber family which bears
the name of the Iberclllea soborae.
This plant, like the CAtnel, la a native
of the desert and It baa to go without
water luBger than the animal. As
the rainy season In tho desert comes
only once a year nature provides the
1. 8. with a reservoir to store up
enough moisture to last It between
times. The organ In which tho water
is stored Is located at the ba of the
stem. It Is covered with a sort of
mackintosh envrlo;x, throuKh which
the water can neither ecap nor evap
orate. This water holdi-r rests on the
aand throughout the entire period of
drought, but when the rain comes It
springs Into activity.

enforced by the State and Fed

ty attacking a duljr established
marriage on the ground that one
of the parties to such marrincre
was incompetent to" contract
marriage by reason of a prior
subsisting marriage, must .not
only prove a valid prior marriage
but al30 that it has not been dis
solved at the time of the second
marriage, even though it involves
the proving of a negative; that
every presumption is in favor of
the validity of the established
marriage, and these presump

burden of proof being upon the
party attacking the marriage.

in almost every instance some'
reference to the death of Sena-1

sober turn to the conversation,1
and there waa less laughing and

The President's annual mes
sage to Congress, read in both

one that be will transmit, unless
re-elected, is considered to be,
en th whole, a dignified, com-1
prehensive view of the nation's:
affairs. The President's recom

mental matters are in harmony
with his well known views, and
he urges upon the people to re
member that the material condi

sound and that the great mass of
the country's business is con

The message is considered to be
replete with soggtstions for im

every American should read.
The cor.censns of opinion
among leading Senators and
Representatives is that there is
absolutely no need for emergen
cy legislation because within thei

siderable portion of borrowed
capital now employed and the re
sult will be that the bank re
serves will grow rapidly. The
leaders in Congress insist that
financial legislation is too impor
tant a subject to be dealt with
hurriedly and the intimation is
that no measure will be enacted
before spring. Speaker Cannon
has annoanced the committee on
Banking and Currency, and
whatever may be the action of
the committee, the expectation is
that the real financial bill of the
session will come from the Sen

will later in the session report
