A WARNING TO DRIVERS
; This fellow was, late on his rounds and the coia air
' was nipping his fingers and ears. He slapped the
lines down impatiently on the backs of his horses
and the vehicle rattled off rapidly towards the car
tracks. Of course the driver knew the car might be
coming but he thought .
"NOT THIS TIME."
The rattle of his team prevented his hearing he s.aw the car too late to
stop and a bad accident followed. v -
We beg the drivers of Wagons, Teams, Buggies and Automobiles to re
member that the cars are bound to run upon a fixed track and cannot vary
their course, nor shut off their speed at once but the drivers can, and the
responsibility for a collision is generally with them. DRIVERS! BE DELIB

VICTIMS OF HUMOR.

The late I roctor Knott seems to be
remembered chiefly as the author of
the facetious I'uluth speech, says the
New York World. Vet lie whs a great
lawyer, and as chairman of the bonse
committee on Hie judiciary he had to
do with serious and vastly important
affairs. Mr. Knott's single appearance
as a humorist rixod his reputation for
all time, and uo amount of profoundly
serious work omitl change it.
Samuel S. Cos hat! a similar experi
ence witli greater reason, for In early
life be had cultivated the riU4les
quite devotedly. Mr. Knott lived long
enough to perceive that be was to be

MARK ANTONY'S TRICK.
It Worked Like a Charm Till Cleo
i patra Learned the Secret.
According to Plutarch. Cleopatra
was a rotary of the piscatorial art. and
I so keen did the rivalry become be-
tween her mid Autouy that he resort-
ed to the meanest nrtitiees to insure
: victory. Moi-titied aud irritated by
! the queen's superiority, be engaged
i divers to take live iisb and place them
j on his hook. This was done so ex
; pertly that he pulled up fish after fish
j lu rapid se cession. Learning in some
I way the secret of his sudden success,
i Cleopatra pretended to congratulate
him aud to admire his dexterity, and
at the same time she devised a cun
j ning means of revenge.
Another ma till was arranged, and
' the fishing began in the presence of a
I large company of friends. Antony
Boon had a, bile and pulled up a large
salted fish to his great disgust and
amid the loud laughter of all present.
The secret was out; Antony's tried;
was e.ti'sed. and once more woman's
wit had proved too much for man's
ingenuity. A diver, specially Instruct
ed by the queeu, had got the start of
Antony's and attached the salt fish to

The Yellowstone Wonder.
Dr. Arnold Hague shows that there
Is a strong contrast between the geo
logical conditions connected with the
geysers of Iceland and those of the
Yellowstone park. Volcanic eruptions
may be said geologically to be still
going on In Iceland, while in the Yel
lowstone such action ceased many
thousands of years ago. The Yellow
stone phenomena as seen today repre
sent a phase in the evolution of ther
mal springs. The tendency of a gey
ser Is to develop a hot surface pool,
after w hich explosive action may cease
and the geyser, as such, become ex
tinct, but this is a very slow process.
Dr. n.igue rejects the idea that the
cessation of activity In a geyrer indi
cates the dissipation of the original
source of heat and ascribes it simply
to a shifting of the channel of the as

Lisbon, Ohio, Dec. 10. After telling
the court how her husband, Jacob Zim
merman, had hitched her to a plow as
the "off horse" with her brother, Em
ma Zimmerman was granted a divorce

added that be never had felt more
genuine pleasure in signing a decree

Although subjected to hardships and
abuse, Mrs. Zimmerman, who is only i
23 years oii, still has the bloom of
health in her cheeks.' She told on the
stand how her husband had abused
her and her baby and then forced her
a corrective medicine

out-of-sorts when she
has headache, backache
lassitude, nervous depres
sion and a general sense
At such times she cannot be
expected to be good for much
