He was discoursing at great length
to his class In regard to truth and ver
acity. He harangued, argued and ca
joled In quick sentences, and slow sen
tences. One minute, his pupils thought
that he would stop, but in another
they would be swamped by his elo
quence. He had tacked on peroration
after peroration to his discourse. His
imagination on his chosen topic was
unlimited. But after he had run for
more than an hour on the single topic
and had cited examples of all sorts
to bring forth his stupendous topic in
the most forceful way, he became
somewhat egotistical. He could not
refrain from bringing the inevitable
"I" Into the long lecture.
Said he: "I have always made it a
point to stick to the path of the vir
tuous, commonly called the straight
and narrow way. I have heeded the
commandment of the truth. I would
not tell a lie. And as for taking a
penny that, did not belong to me. I
could not think of such a thing with
out a shudder."
Brightening with a sudden Inspira
tion, he raved: "Many people take ad
vantage of a conductor or. a street car
or interurban if he happens to pass by
them and forget to collect their fare.
They chuckle, slip the nickel Into their
pocket, ride to their journey's end in
a most happy frame of mind. But I
my dear friends, would no more think
of doing that than going down here
to the chilly waters of the swift Mis
sissippi and jumping into and taking
my life.
And with a few more gasps, he fin
ished his talk and said, "class is dis
missed."
A few days after the teacher clear
ed his system of that lecture on
truth and veracity, some four or five
of his pupils entered the same bridge
line car. Few other people were on

it. When they espied their beloved
teacher, they said, "Here is a chance
to try him on his own truth and verac
ity. Beckoning to the conductor, on
of them produced the fares for the
bunch and in addition paid for the
teacher, saying to the 'conductor that
he should pass him by.
They saw the pedagogue reach into

signs of missing him. They remained
on the car till after the educator left
It. Did they see him offer to pay the
conductor? They did not. As a mat
ter of fact, the teacher lost no time in
hurrying away from the car.
As yet, the pupils have been a little
leary of putting their discovery up to
the instructor, but they have let every
other pupil in the class know of the
little incident. They thought that
they had a teacher who lacked some
of the parts of the average member
of the human race, but they .are happy
to find that he Is nothing more than
an ordinary individual, and not the
immortal that they supposed.

This is what the vitrified foundation block of the Davenport Brick t Tile company Is doing as it is in the financial interest and satisfaction
of the prospective builder to use same. There is no other material that will keep the cellar and basement as dry and also as cool in summer and
warm in winter and make the walls as vermin proof. Kindly observe how practically our corner blocks close up the ends Do not over
look to have your architect specify our make and that the contractors use same (look for the stamp "Davenport" on the blocks!. At any time
jou are in need f building blocks It will be In your interest to favor us with your orders.

Churchyard Yew Trees.
One reason given vrhy very old yew
trees are so often found In country
churchyards Is that originally thce
trees were planted to, supply the peas- )
ants with wood for their bows, for In :
lawless times It was soon discovered )
that the only place where trees would j
be safe from nightly marauders was
the churchyard, where the most hard
ened thief dared not venture between
darkness and dawn. London Mail.
Rheumatism Relieved in a Few Hours.
N. B. Langley, Madison, Wis., says:
"I was almost helplets with rheuma
tism for about five months. Had It in
my neck so I could not turn my head,
and all through my body. I tried three
doctors and many remedies without
any relief whatever until I procured
Dr. Detchon's Relief for Rheumatism.
In a few hours the pain was relieved
and In three days the rheumatism was
completely cured and I was at work."
