fenses that she is worried. She- has a
vague feeling that something is going
to happen, and while she docs not say
to, she probably will not be entirely
latlsfted in her own mind till her fears
are realized. There are two clocks in 't
the house, both ordinarily goad time
Keepers, one upstairs and the other
down. The other day while busy with
her work the housewife noticed that
the one downstairs had stopped. With
thoughts upon the approach of the din-J
rcr hour the woman went upstairs to '
see what time it was and lo and behold
the other clock had stopped at ex
actly the same minute as the one be-'
low. Now there are no practical jokers ;
in the family. Both timepieces had
been wound as usual and neither had '
been disturbed. So, while not one bit
upersti uous the good woman is con-
vinced that something is going to hap-i

Margaret, aged G years, and her aunt
one evening not long ago took a drive
to the country. Margaret was much
interested in the horses and cattle
-jIoiip the road, and' her attention was
called particularly to several short-
horned cows. Margaret looked at the
cows in astonishment and just then
one of them gave a loud moo. "Why, j
Auntie," said Margaret, "how can thai
cow make a noise without its horns?

A few days ago the home of a promi
nent Rock Island attorney was giad
dfiicd by, the arrival of a boy. Hie
boy, like most people of his age, had '
decidedly powerful lungs. A company
of relatives and friends had gathered
at the attorney's lionie to see the new
member of the family, when the boy
gave a demonstration of his vocal pow
ers. All of the older members of the
company were sitting quietly, waiting
for the little piece of humanity . to
case, when suddenly a lad of a dozen
01 so years, who had been watching
his cousin with much admiration,
spoke up and said. "(Ice, wouldn't he
make' a dandy umpire?" ,

head offices, it is likely that the niani
inutli proportions of the Modern Wood
men society are little better realized
than they are in some other cities.
Peoria had a hard time getting at the
facts before the recent head camp but
no, doubt is fully convinced by this
time, through ocular and other evi
dence. In impressing the bigness of
the institution upon the people of tha.
city the Woodmen had '.he assistance
of George Fitch, ediior of the Herald
Transcript, who printed the following
original data to help impress the les
ion: "It is just as hard today to realize
what a million members means as it
was y yesterday. Here are a few fig
ures: . "It takes IS mail carriers and two
old whiie horses to bring the morning's
mail over to -he office.
"This mail Is opened by 75 clerks
who wear out each day one great gross
of paper cutters. -
"It takes one ton of binding twine
each day to tie up the $1 bills received
through the mail.
"Two years ago a 500 pound package
of postage stamps which had been
l.oiight' 'for the day's correspondence
fell upon an office boy and killed him.
"Iast year the clerk who signs the
receipts for money paid in lost his
place because his name had four syl
lables. The order put in a man whose
name had one syllable and saved $11.

"The whole world is searched for
men with broad tongues to lick stamps
in the mailing room. When the St.
I,ouis exposition shinplasters were is
sued nine stamp lickers went to the
hospital in eight days.
"There are 789 X. Y. Smiths in the

There-came stepping down one of
the principal thoroughfares of Rock
Island the other day a pair of beau
tiful black horses, bright with silver
harness trimmings, hitched to a rich
looking open brougham. The coach
man was "done up" in green broad
cloth and brass buttons, silk hat and
ail. In fact the equipage, from the
front at least, was such as to attract
the attention of every one on the
street who stopped to watch the ap
proach. As the outfit drew near a
loud clatter was heard and tied - to
the rear axle was a string of old tin
cans, buckets and shoes which rattled
along the pavement. The appearance
.of the occupants indicated rural ori
gin and their toggery was a caution.
There were four people, two evidently
a bridal couple. The bride had a
wonderful coiffure and a chapeau with
great waving plumes and gay flower3
and dress to correspond. To complete
the burlesque the groom sat very close
to the bride with his arm tightly en
circling her waist and with his head
nestled close to her shoulder and ev
ery once in a while he would bestow
on her a rapturous kiss, seemingly
perfectly oblivious of the amused end

spouse for his distant kingdom. The-
princess had no liking for this journey
and ceaselessly lamented the distance
of the country in which she was to live
In future. At last, having reached the

solutely refused to go a step -farther.
The prince In his perplexity sent court-.

Pekin was that if the princess re
