THOSE ESKIMO MURDERERS.
Explorer Rasmussen Defends the No

Knud Rasmussen. the Danish 'sci
entist, who supports Dr. Cook's claim
as to the discovery of the north pole,
has written a book on life among the
Eskimos which has established his
reputation as an authority.
Rasmussen tells some weird stories
about the horrible murders practiced
by these Eskimos In their earlier days,
but in summing up their general char
acteristics he adds:
"I have never In the course of my
travels lived with more cheerful, more,
amiable and good humored people than
these east Greonlanders. who. had they
lived in a civilized state, would have
paid the penalty of the law for most
And again, speaking of the Eskimos
as a whole, he says:
"There Is no people with a history
which, as regards the bitterness of its
struggle for existence and the eeriness
of Its memories, can be compared with
the host of the Eskimos. Yes, they are
good natured and filled with a desire
for peace lu spite of all. But do not
forset that they ore, first and fore
most, men, and men formed by the na
ture surrounding them. The mind of
the Eskimo can be quiet and serene,
but It can bo savage and remorseless
as the ocean Itself."
OVERRULED JUDGE PECKHAM
Hired 4tar Differed With Supreme
Court Justice About Hay Crop.
The late United States Supreme Court
Justice itufus W. I'eckham owned a
picturesque farm nt Altaniont. a short
distance from Albany. N. Y-, where he
died. His family spent their summers
at this farm, which was contiguous to
the farms of several other wealthy Al
bany families. One evening the judge
took a turn about his farm. The hired
uiaa Jiad cut hay during the day. The
crop was not as bountiful as It might
have been or as great as the Judge had
THE LATE JtJSTICB FECK HAM.
anticipated. The newly cut grass was
spread about, as is the case on all
farms, to allow it to dry. so tbat it
might be placed in the barn. The
judge as be glanced over the meadow
was displeased. He showed it. Turn
ing to the hired man, he said to him:
"It seems to me that your methods
are very lax. Why are you not more
particular in scraping up the hay? AH
over the field you have left little drlb
blings." The hired man looked hard at the
judge and then answered, "Why, that
is the crop."

THE JEWISH SABBATH.
Its Influence on the Habits of the Ho
The Hebrew Sabbath, includlug lt
complicated preparations, is rich and
impressive material for a child's Imagi
nation. On Thursday evening the
mother already prepares dough, goes
to market, cleans the fish, etc., says
the American Hebrew.
In the morning comes the baking of
"chales" (bread). How bewitching for
a child to watch the mother making
different shapes of dongh, smearing it
with egg and decorating it with braids
of different shapes and forms. A Jew
ish child gets the first lesson in model
ing by making make believe "chales."
In the evening the mother prepares
to meet the Sabbath. The child par
takes in the household occupations
and therefore gets habits of industry,
order and regard for the rights and
ideas of others and the fundamental
habit of subordinating his activities to
the general interest of the household.
This Is especially true in regard to
Jewish households where everything
seems to be prescribed by law. Before
darkness sets in on Friday the house
wife lights in the dining room extta
candles or a special lamp in honor of
saobatn ana reaas tee Dicssing. v

ing. Horses and Rain.
Day after day the lover of animals
had stopped to pet the baker's horse,
which happened to be bitched St a
certain corner at the hour when the
animal lover passed, and the horse ap
parently appreciated the attention. But
one day his mood changed, and be
mapped viciously. "Well, of all
things!" exclaimed the animal lover.
"He never did that before."
"Probably because yon never petted
him before in rainy weather," said the
man who knows a little bit abont
horses. "As yon value your ten fin

get familiar with a horse when he is

Not Done -For the Sake of Neatness,
but to Prevent Theft.
Persons who have-been somewhat'!
astonished by having whitewashed
coal delivered to" them will be inter
ested to know that the whitewashing
is not done to improve the appearance
or to increase the burning qualities.
The treatment neither improves nor
harms the fuel.
It is a detective scheme on the part
of the railroads to locate and to pre
vent theft of tho coal as it is hauled
from the mines to the consumer.
These depredations amount to thou
sands of tons annually, and the rail
roads are the sufferers, as it Is np to
them to deliver as many tons at their
destination, often a thousand miles
away, es were weighed in when the
car was turned over for transportation.
. Two or three tons may be removed
from a carload containing, forty tons
without attracting atjention to its de
creased quantity until the car is again
placed on the scales. To locate the
loss, says Popular Mechanics, llmewa
ter is sprayed over a carload of coal.
In a short time the water "has evapo
rated, leaving a load of white .coal.
Then removal "of any coal leaves a big
black spot, which is qnickly noticed by
Inspectors and; station agents and the
leak found and stopped. 4.
RENTS FAIL TO KEEP PACE
Value of Farm Lands Incrras Faster
Thnn Income of Owner.
Inquiries in various localities in Illi
nois indicate that cash farm rents are
not keeping pace with the advance in
the price of farm land. Fifteen to 20
years ago, -when the maximum price of
frst class central Illinois land was
from 5100 to $125 per acre, the general
rate of cash rent was about $4 per
acre. The grain rent was usually two
fifths. With land now averaging
around $200 per acre and much of it
Many hardships were suffered because of the lack of supplies and provisions but those
days are over. The introduction of the Modern Cash Grocery of which this store is the
Pioneer in this vicinity, has made it possible to buy the best groceries at prices within
