How easy it in to mis-spell a name
was demonstrated Friday when th
News-Sun inadvertently spelled the
names of Mr. and Mrs. Sylvester Hart
tuck with a final "h" Instead of the
final "k." The similarity of the spell
ing with that of the name of his
brother, George W. Hartsuch. who
epel's his with the final "h." natur
ally caused some confusion, although
every one on the 6taff really knew
better than to spell It that way.
However, the mistake slipped through,
necessitating apology and explanation.
VT are very sorry It happened.

PITV TUB PHOTOGRAPHER.
Received by an Illinois Photogra
pher.) Mr. , don't you think Mr.
Miller and I have an old look in our
fares, especially round the mouth?
Kow I know the photos finished will
be altogether better than the proofs
r.nd I don't want to be unreasonable,
but I don't like the expression of our
mouths, especially mine. Would it
be possible for you to remove thoee
3eep lines from my nose to corners of
my mouth and to remove that broad
grin I happened to get to my mouth?
It ipn't naturally that way. Please
make the mouth expression look mors
pleasant for both of us and give us a
brighter, happier look to the eyes.
Remove all the wrinkles you can out
f't Mr. Miller's face and mouth and a
large one on Wt side of his neck.
My hair seems puffed more on left
side of my bead than on the right
tide of head above the ears. Could
you make more puff to the right side
so as to look nearer like the left? i
Please do your best on the pictures.
Mr. . and give us as happy
anl pleasant an expression as you
can. Yon msy finish those like the
proof we enclose to you. Yours truly,
HR. AND MRS. MILLER.

The "Sunny South" theatre company
traveling in a palatial steamer arrived
at this levee Saturday noon and at
ence announced Itself with some stir
rig calliope music. A band of nine
pieces gave a number of selections on
Main street during the afternoon and
evening. The attendance at the even
ing performance was fairly good and
general opinion of the play was not
very complimentary, due to the ill
ness of a child of the leading lady;
who was represented by her under
study. TIP FROM YE ED.

The knocker is a nuisance In the
land, whether he operate in the fam
ily, in the church. In business circles,
In politics or even In the columns of
the religious newspaper. He assumes
perfection for himself always. He has
never read those words of the Master
which deals with beams In the eyes
of the knocker who is hunting motes
in the eyes of the knocked. He di
vides all humanity Into two classes;,
himself Jn t;he one perfect class, all
others as the poor unfortunates. He
places himself on the pedestal of per
fection, while all other mortals are
struggling In the depths below. H1b
self appreciation Is appalling. The
failure of anybody else to appreciate
Is equally appalling to him. He in
fests the community like a burglar
and is about equally harmful. He Is
the enemy of peace and happiness.
He ever seeks their- overthrow. He
loves nothing so much as discord and
strife. He delights in laying open to
inspection and criticism the weakness,
of his fellowmen.

Audacious Test of Marksman's Ski!(
In a Duel.
M. Colombey, in his history of duel
ing, tells an anecdote of a certain
rioted duelist of his time.
One day this man, M. D., was at
Desenne's shooting gallery in Parts
watching the pistol practice. There
was one mau who was shooting very
well and Desenne was threatened with
the loss of all bis glass bails and
swinging dolls. Every shot was greet
ed by the spectators with exclama
tions of admiration.
B. looked on for awhile, and finally,
I In a calm voice, made the remark. "He
could not do as well on the field."
The object of the slighting remark
turned around, and In a loud and
angry tone cried: "Who are you to
say that? Would you like to test the
truth of your remark?"
"Willingly," replied the unrecognized
dentist as be led the way out to a
secluded place. After taking their re
spective positions, they drew lots, and
it fell to B. to shoot last. He waited
in silence for his adversary's shot The
man fired and missed.
B. lowered his pistol. "What did
I tell you?" he said, with a smile.
Then, putting his pistol in bis pocket
he walked away whistling.

In cold weather more food is needed;
the skin acts less and the kidneys more.
There is more desire for active ex
ercise. Humidity reduces the actual heat of
the air in summer, but Increases its
oppressiveness and makes people le
thargic and relaxed. The perspiration
does not evaporate and the pores get
clogged. In cold weather dry air leaves
the body free to retain or give up its
natural Lent according to its needs,
but moist air brings about a leakage of
bodily warmth that is difficult to pre

The most exquisitely dainty borne
built by the bill and feet of birds is
that of the ruby throated bumming
bird. When completed it is scarcely
larger thau an English walnut and Is
usually saddled on a small horizontal
limb of a tree or shrub frequently
many feet from the ground.
This dainty domicile is composed al
most entirely of soft plant fibers, frag
ments of spiders' webs sometimes be
ing used to hold tbem in shape. The
sides are thickly studded with bits of
lichen, and practiced indeed is the eye
of the man who can distinguish it from
a knot on the limb. The eggs are the
size of quinine pills.
Although the bumming bird's nest Is
exceedingly frail, there appears to be
nothing on record to show that any
great numbers of them come to grief
during the summer rains. It is. bow
