A Cackling Hen
May be excused from making an aw
fully bii; racket over a mighty little egg;
but when 'he cacklea for an hour over a
China dnor knob it is time to throw a
brick at her. There ia alas some excuse
for a merchant cackling a good deal over
A GENUINE BARGAIN,
but when the so called bargain turns out
to be A dook knob bargain, it is time
eomehody threw a brick or a "shoo" at
the noisy thing. There's an awful lot of
cackling about bargains going on, but
we'll bet tbe,'er all door-knob bargains,
so here goes our brick; we'll meet any
price, snow better quality for the same
money, and do as well if not better by
you than any other firm in Rock Island.
No door knob bargains about this.

Oh, ships that sail to Melton,

Ear, as Indicators.
In human beings of low or debased men
tal standard the ears are large and flabby
note those of idiots, cretins, etc
When there is no lobe, and the ear
widens from the bottom upward, the
owner is of a selfish, cunning and revenge
When the ear is oval in form, with the
lobe slightly but distinctly marked, it in
dicates for its owner a lofty ideality, com
bined with a morbidly sensitive nature.
Large round ears with a neat "hem"
around their border, well carved, not flat,
indicate a strong will and a bulldog tenac
ity of purpose.
Ears in which the "hem" is flat, as if
smoothed down with a flatiron, accompany
a vacillating mind and cold, unromantic
The person who has an ear with a
rounded, ovate top is almost without ex
ception one with a placid disposition and a
nature that pines to love and be loved in
Large ears, drooping at the top, belong
to persons more animal than human. St.
Women Try Frequently.
There is a laundryman of an unpleasant
ly suspicious turn of mind on Third avenue.
He has tacked a dime closely to his coun
ter and silvered the entire thing over, so
that it takes unusually keen eyes or glasses
to discover the stationary nature of the
coin. And this laundryman is unkind
enough to say that there are many more
women who attempt to take away this
dime than there are men. They the wo
men have various ways of trying to carry
oil the coin. Sometimes they say as they
open their purses:
"Oh, dear! there's a ten cent piece I
dropped." Then they try to pick it up and
grow very red and quite annoyed at their
lack of success. Ot hers drop a lot of small
coins on the counter and try to gather the
dime in with the rest. Others rest their
arms upon the silver bit iu an accidental
way and look very much disgusted when
the money does not budge teneath their
muscular efforts to remove it. New York
"Waking" the. Dead.
Said a well known embalmer of this
city, speaking of waking the dead: "The
custom is almost a universal one, and in
some form is olserved by every race and
tribe whether civilized or barbarous. In
this country we are apt to associate wakes
with the Catholic people, but the sitting
up with the bixly after death, and especial
ly during the night time, from time out of
mind has been practiced by those of every
other creed. This custom probably orig
inated when embalming and undertaking
were very crude and in their infancy and
the dread or dear friends and relatives at
leaving the bodies of their loved ones alone
over night, and to prevent any injury to
the body watchers were selected or ap
pointed who sat up all night and took turns
in lcokinc after the condition of the body.
Then the doubt iu many people's minds
that their lifeless ones are not really dead
is another reason for the custom." Phila
People with Strong Opinions.
Some people nurse their individual opin
ions in very defiance of the rest of man
kind. Conspicuous historic examples are
abundant. We are told that the great
philosopher Diogenes lived in a tub. Alex
ander in the splendor of his fame sought
to pay him court, yet the only favor asked
by the philosopher was the absence of the
warrior Diogenes simply requested the
intruder to get out of his light. Perhaps,
after all, this bit of so called history may
be but an allegory or parable. None of us
likes to have our views, our opinions, ob
structed even by great men. The incident
is classed as a mere parable just as we
place the one which is given in the life of
another great man who is said to have
actually "hurled his inkstand at the devil"
when the satanic majesty had appeared to
him. Luther simply fought the evil spirit
with ink and pen. Detroit Free Press.

One of the Freaks of Human Nature.
It's singular that the man who can't
sleep nights in a bed with every window
up and no superfluous attire can drop Into
a chair after dinner in a back office where
the temperature is 105 and where flies do
battle for the possession of his whiskers
and can sleep so sound that he cant see

year a layer equal to fourteen feet of the
entire surface of the ocean and other
waters is taken up into the atmosphere in
the shape of vapor, to fall as the rain and
again flow back into the seas.
When disease germs have effected an en

substances which give rise to the char
