A Tree Deeded to Itself!
In one respect at least the Clarke county
fGa.) court house is t he repository of the,
most remarkable legal document ever
drawn up by man. It is on file in the office
of the recorder of deeds, where it bas been
for nearly a century. This unique legal
document is in shape of a deed, the grantee
being an oak tree. The tree as it now
stands is in front of the residence of Major
Stanley at Athens, on what was formerly
a farm owned by Colonel W. H. Jackson.
It was an odd transaction all around, one
eminently characteristic of the grantor,
who was known as a man of strong loves
and hates, having many of the former and
but few of the latter. He and the old tree
grew up together, and t he leanings of his
peculiar nature caused him to reverence
the gigantic oak as though it were a thing
of animate life.
When in ripe old age the colonel reflected
that he would soon be called hence it
grieved him to think of leaving the tree to
the mercy of any destroyer capable of
wielding an ax. With these thoughts in
mind he went to the ceurt house and re
corded, this remarkable instrument: "I,
W.H.Jackson, of the county of Clarke,
state of Georgia, of the first part, and the
oak tree (giving location) of the other
part, witnesseth: That the said W. H.
Jackson, for and in consideration of the
great affection he bears for said tree and
his desire to see it protected, has conveyed
and by these presents does convey and con
firm unto said tree entire possession of
itself and of the land within eight feet of
it on all sides." From the tenor of the
deed the tree is not only possessor of itself,
but is a Georgia real estate holder. St.
Every one knows, in a general way, how
fatal habits of carelessness may prove.
Yet few mothers we say mothers be
cause the training of the young is mainly
in their hands are sufficiently impressed
with the importance of vigorously train
ing their children to habits of carefulness.
An old Lttin proverb said, '"The moth
ers of the timid seldom weep." We do
not wish children trained to timidity, but
to thoughtfulness to considering the
probable consequences of their conduct.
Certainly, in the transition period from
childhood to youth, the formation of right
habits in this respect can be begun.
"I didn't think" should not be a full ex
cuse for many little misdeeds or for a
costly piece of carelessness.
If the habit of negligence is once formed
it will assert itself through life possibly
in a disastrous way. If a habit of careful
ness is formed it will be, .a lifelong benefit
probably beyond all that its possessor
Stagings are constantly giving way, re
sulting in death or broken bones, because
those who put them up were careless in
their construction. A friend of ours, a re
tired housebnilder, never had an accident
of the kind during his long life. He had
formed the habit of assuring himself that
every stick of timber and every nail was
sound and that every nail was well driven
home. Youth's Companion.
Roles for Building School Honses.
The state board of health has issued a
circular treating of the building of school
houses, which contains the following in
structions: School houses should be built
in places that are quiet and free from dan
gers of various kinds, and on dry ground.
The playgrounds should be ample, sunny
and protected from cold winds. In regard
to heating and ventilation, stress is laid
on the importance of a capacious fresh air
inlet when either furnaces or stoves are
used, and direct radiation of heat from
stoves or steam coils is condemned. As
to lighting a schoolroom, the rule is laid
down that the glass surface of the win
dows should equal at least one-fifth of the
floor space of the room; that the principal
light should come from the scholars' left,
and if possible the light should betaken
from the northeast, east or north, the pref
erence being in the order in which the
points of the compass are made.
With this end in view it is recommended
that the schoolrooms all be placed on one
side of a building, with corridors, halls,
stairways and wardrobes on the other.
When possible the schoolroom wall oppo
site the principal light should be reserved
for the blackboard. Blackboards should
not be placed between the windows or near
them. Bangor Commercial.
In the Matter of Drink.
Yesterday afternoon the conductor and
driver of a Madison avenue street car had
a discussion about bow much water a
horse should get on a hot day.
"They ought to put a trough there,"
sajd the conductor; "that bucket they're
giving that fellow will hardly wet his
"If they'd put a trough there he'd drink
"Oh, he wouldn't."
"I say yes."
"And I say no. Take a man. You let
him drink all he wants. The horse
wouldn't drink any more than he
"A man's a fool, so's a horse," said the
conductor. "Put a man in front of a keg
and he won't stop when he's got enough.
Put a horse in front of a trough and he'll
drink as much as a man. Neither one of
'em likes to let any go- to waste, and when
you have bad as much to do with men and
hoies as I have you'll know something."
The driver was about to make a funny
remark when the whistle blew and the
horses started off up town. New York
Glass Eyes fur Men and Women.
There is absolutely no difference between
men's and women's eyes, so far as the eye
itself goes, and any extra brilliancy the
latter may have is due to a more copious
supply of moisture to the surface of the
eye the moisture which, when too copious,
escapes down the cheeks as tears.
As for not being able to te'd a glass eye
from a real one, it is only an exceptionally
unobservant person who could ail to no
tice tbe difference after a short time with
the wearer of it. This is due to several
defects in glass eyes which no manufac
turer can overcome.
As for a husband never discovering that
his wife wore a glass eye, that could only
be accounted for by supposing that he
wore two glass eyes himself. London Tit
