It was with a determination to con

the matter of trading than by spend

first few days were of a strenuous na
ture. Being without funds, he felt the
pangs of hunger many times, but after
traveling several days he met Fred
Foster, a lumberman and cattle dealer
of Warner,- X. II., who gave hhn a Job
driving cattle from place to place and
allowed him to trade on his own ac
count. For his first peek's wages he
took a yearling heifer, and before he
reached the next town he had traded
It for a carriage. The carriage was
hitched behind the team that followed
the cattle and was sold before he had
gone five miles farther for about four
times what the heifer cost him. This
was the beginning of his trading after
he left home, and he continued to
trade until he thought he had enough
to convince his father that he knew
his business. Mr. Ovens says he is con

"He Just wouldn't studr. and I had

From Boston. This evening at the
Illinois theater the latest musical com
edy, "Miss Manhattan," will be pre
sented direct from a long run in Bos
ton, where the company closed a few
days ago, after playing one of the
most brilliant engagements of the
theatrical season in that city. "Miss
Manhattan" n prod'ueed by and under
the management of Joe Oppenhcimcr,
the veteran producer of spectacular
and musical successes, a guarantee in
itself that tho production is beyond the
average and the fact that it scored the
success of the season in 'the "Hub"
tells its own story. The play has the
merit of having a distinct plot, dealing
throughout the two .acts into which it
is divided with the fortunes and mis-
fortunes of Timothy Doolcy, a would

production of "The Wolf." the newest
I from the pen of Eugene Walter, which
; has scored an enormous success the
past season. "Tho Wolif had its first
presentation at Shubert's Lyric thea
ter, New York, and enjoyed a most
prosperous run at that theater for one
hundred night, when, on account of
previous bookings was obliged to close

here's a yarn relates to a press agent

company haj been announcing with
pride that oa Saturday, November 21,
at Weber's tLeater, "Paid . in Full"
would end its remarkable New
York run with 315 performances to its
credit. Now comes the startling reve
lation that someone has blundered and
that when the play leaves for Phila
delphia it will have been seen on
Broadway 3-1 i times. Now- and then
ambitious press agents have attempted
to squeeze. n few extra performances
into their tlectric signs and printed
advertisements, but, never before in
the history, of theatricals has any
publicity promoter failed to record the
full number of nights his attractions
had played on the Great White Way.
An oversight of even one performance
Is a crime for which the erring young
man who puts pieces in the papers for

-n-T THE PRETZEL. ;
- ! ' '
Us Simple Figure Scheme and Infinite
Possibilities of Variety. .
The pretzel is one of the most re
markable creations of the human mind
and hand. 'It stands almost alone as
an artificial product displaying !'the
countless varieties of form produced
by nature-in the-leaves of trees and
blades of grasses. Of the millions
upon millions turned out by the pretsel
bakeries since the Inception of the in
dustry It Is not probdble that any two
"were exactly alike. - '
,' The general figure scheme of the
pretzel must have been an inspiration
It would have been Impossible for the
human mind to conceive a scheme so
simple and yet permitting such ap
proach to infinite variation.- Because
of the peculiar shape of the pretzel Its
construction Is most easily described
or employing sailor men s terms.
.M. C.A.WINS FROM
Association Boys Take Students Off
Feet in Second Half in Basket
ball Contest. .
The Y. M C. A. basketball team
cored its fist real victory of the
season Saturday evening, when it de
feated a team from Augustana collgee
by the close score of 43 to 37. The
first half of the game seemed to Indi
cate an easy victory for the college
players as they had the margin on the
Y. M. C. A. boys by a score of 24 to 10.
In the second half, however, the asso
ciation team took the students oft their
feet, with ti-.e result that they won out
by C points The association team
ined up with Jensen at center. Cook
and Voss forwards and Driggs and
bighf Is taken In a' roll of dough, and
the ends are given a half twist and
brought back uinn opposite sides of
he bight. This makes the article
somewhat heart shaped. There can
have been no sentimental reason for
this shape, for there is no product of
art or nature further removed from the
realm of sentiment than Is the pretzel
The finished article looks ns if It had
been varnished and exposed to a sand'
storm before the vami?h dried.
Hie pretzel Is unique as an article of
Internal use. It cannot be classed as
food or drink. It is not a desnert. nor
Is it a medicine, j Perhaps it should le
classed as nn appetizer an appetizer
not for food, but for drink,, and therein
lies Its uniqueness. It Is the great
thirst producer.- It Is the third of a
Sahara done up in a twist of dough.
If any one could inveut something that
wouid quench thirst as effectively as
the pretzel can produce It his fortune
would be made.
The home of the pretzel is Ger
many, where It is called bretzel or
pretzel, according to whether it Is in
north Germany or south Germany, but
in America it is pretzel all the time,
whether in North America or South
America. The name is commonly re
garded as being derived from words in
the Latin language meaning bracelet.
But Germans are not fond of taking
words from the Latin tongues. Per
haps the pretzel owes its name to the
fact that it is baked on a fiat, board
like surface. The German word for
board is brett. Washington Tost.
Compass Without Magnetic Needle.
At a meeting of the League of Ger
man Xaval Architects recently held at
Cliarlottenburg. Germany, Dr. An

compass, without a magnetic needle
which has just been Invented. It is In
the form of. a . gyroscope, which when
suspended in a certain way always ad
justs itself parallel to the earth's axis.
The invention is regarded as of great
Importance to Ironclads, where the com
