Frederick was often invited to spend

He has ever since been on terms of

TO PULL WIRE NAILS-

it is very desirable to have a good in
strument for pulling out the nails. In
variably this is done iu a careless and
slipshod manner, anything RUtlicieut so
long as the box is opened. To break up
the lid takes more time than if the
nails were carefully extracted, besides
ruining the box for future use. An In
diana man has patented the wire nail
puller shown in the illustration, which
possesses several novel features.
This instrument is formed of a shank
having attached at the end a pair of
claws of the usual form employed upon
hammers, one claw having u longer
curve thau the other. The shank is
bent iu the center, the free end iu
alignment with the claw having the
shorter curve, ho that when the claw is
placed beneath the head of the nail the
shank will he parallel with the lox
from which the uail is drawn. When in
this position the draft or force required
to tirst engage the claw with the nail is
in direct Hue with the structure and at
right angles to the uail and enables the

A KISS AND $10,000.
Meniphla Doctor's. Reward For Fight

Ten thousand dollars aud a kiss from
a leading society woman is the reward
given to Dr. Heber Jones, president of
the Memphis loard of health. In recog
nition of bis successful efforts la keep

during the recent visit of the scourge
to the southern states, says a Memphis
special dispatch to rtie Chicago Tribune,
The check waa the result of a sub
scription list taken up by influential
cit ixens. who quickly secured $10.00.
Tins kiss was not on the programme
for the formal presentation, which oc

woman was Mrs. James S. itobinson.

Following the preseatatkm of tlx

him squarely upon the lips.
The act took Dr. Jones by surprise,
