The last day of registration pre
paratory to the annual election -of
two members of the board of educa
tion does not indicate the vote that
was expected especially as regards
the female suffragists, From such
returns as have been made of the
register books, the women register

the First ward, for instance, 26 reg

Fourth 20. The general registra

Interest In the Klertion.
Furthermore, there does not seem
to be the interest in the school elec
tion that was manifest a year ago
when two deserving mem tiers of the
board were removed to make way for
the candidates of the A. F. A. organi

has so disgusted people that they
have lost interest in school elections
or not is not known, but stirelv with

The Argun Circulation.
The Aitufs circulation lias grown
more rapidly in the past six months
than before in the paper's history.
The increase in ' subscribers lias been
steady and permanent. It is
"ratifying to note that the invaria
ble rule is that where a new sub
scriber is found, the result is a per
manent patron of the paper. Of late,
however, the circulation of the paper
has increased at an unprecedented
rate considering the time employed,
as the following indicates:

to complain of certain brick which
he thought too soft. Then Supe in

the alderman to a hotter climate.
The alderman refused to take his
orders from a man who was under
the jurisdiction of the council and
insisted that the soft brick would
have to come out before the contrac
tors got another cent. Nevins finally
yielded the point and promised to
make the job satisfactory and the

The fashion of beautifying the table,
which in these days is carried to such an
esrtent, is by no means so original as
many claim it to be. It is 6imply the
revival of an old custom. We are told
that in France when the great joints
grew distasteful and small dishes took
their place decorations of the table
changed too. Permanent pieces called
"dormants," or "surtouts," made of crys
tal and mounted in silver wero placed in
the middle of the table, and from them
branched candelabra of gilt and silver,
vases filled with flowers, tiny trays cov
ered with sweetmeats, or here and there
Finally the frurtont grew so large that
it almost covered the table. People at
last grew tired of the monotony of this
ornament, no matter how artistic it
might he, and instead the center of the
table was often covered with a layer of
potter's clay, in which a florist would
set cut flowers in any design that pleased
him. Artists were often employed to
decorate the table, the center of which
would lie covered with temples, bridges,
amphitheaters or. emblematic groups of
figures, all ruade of paste.
Sometimes the artist would represent
a landscape covered with snow. M.
Carada invented an artificiid hoarfrost,
which was melted by the heat of the
room, during which proce-ss the guests
saw the thawing of the river and the
budding of the trees and flowers as spring
euoceeded winter. Thero were also the
"sableurs," who, by moans of lieautifnl

ground glass, beads and bread crumbs,

The United as4 Company and its Local
The glass workers' committee
which is endeavoring to form a local
company to either establish a new
plant' here or purchase the present
one which the United Glass company
has suspended, recently wrote the
company asking answers on one of
two propositions, the first relating to
a clean out fale of the property and
the second to a lease. So far the
committee has received no answer
from the United Glass company, but
Phil Mitchell, the local director in
the corporation, who has just re
turned from Chicago, hail an inter
view with T. I). Catlin, president of
the company, who stated that the
company would prefer not to lease
under any circumstances, but was
willing to dispose of the plant on very
easv figures and that in a few days'
the local committee would be not i lied
to that effect.
Let's Hope it Will Win.
With this encouragement the ener
getic local committee ought to ex
perience little difficulty in getting
up a company, despite the tightness
of money matters. It is believed the
local sash factories will feel that
they can afford to take considerable
stock in the enterprise; in fact, con
trol the most of it, as the advant
ages of t he maintenance of the factory
here, which is of so much concern to
all business men. will be more to
them than to anv other indiistrv.
A Tradition of the Flood.
All the northern coast Indians have
a tradition of a flood which destroyed all
mankind, except a pair from which the
earth was again peopled. Each tribe
gives the story a lix-.il cob ring, but the
plot of the legend is much the same. Tlw
Bella Coola tradition is as follows:
The creator of the universe, Mes-mes-sa-la-nik,
had great difficulty in the ar
rangement of the land and water. The
earth persisted in sinking out of sight.
At last he hit upon a plan which worked
very well. Taking a long line of twisted
walrus hide he tied it around the dry
land and fastened the other end to the
corner of the moon. Everything worked
well for along time, but at last the spirit
became very much offended at the action
of mankind, and in a fit of anger one day
seized his great stono knife and with a
mighty hack severed the rope of twisted
skin. Immediately the land began to
sink into the sea. The angry waves
rushed in torrents up the valleys, and in
a short time nothing was visible except
the peak of a very high mountain.
All mankind perished in the whelming
waters with the exception of two, a man
and his wife, who were oat fishing in a
big canoe. These two succeeded in
reaching the lrn r " tlie mountain and
proceeded : . . .hnirelves at home.
Here they remained for some time until
the anger of Mes-uie-sa-hv-nik cooled,
which resulted in his fishing up the sev
ered throng and again fastening it to the
moon. From this pfur thus saved the
earth was again populated. Victoria (B.
- 11 uma.il Curiosity.
The inventors of the penny in the slot
machines make their profit out of hu
man curiosity, and their experience has
shown that a very comfortable revenue
can be derived from that source. Prob
ably few people have any idea of the
number of men, women and children
who daily buy chewing gum or other
trifles from machines, or learn their
weight by stepping upon a little plat
form and putting a cent where it will do
the most good. In a down town store
much frequented by those waiting for
cars is one of the weighing machines,
which has a record of earning $50 in a
month. That means that in that time
5,000 persons paid a penny apiece to see
the hand on tho dial go round. New
The eapital of the nation is infested
with a human insect that devotes its en
ergies to boring into places where it is
not wanted. Possibly its kindred exists
elsewhere, but there has leen so much
freedom of access to the houses of men
whose careers depend ujvon popularity,
and so much dread among those in high
places of unwittingly trampling upon
influential feelings, that the breed is es
pecially encouraged there. Then, again,
there are two notable features which
mark the society of the capital the pres
ence of officials and statesmen who are
known far and wide, and the absence of
men who are distinguished in the sci
ences and the arts. H. L. Nelson in

Two months ago if a man wanted
a filter he would probably buy one of
two kinds either a Pasteur or a Gate
City (or Zanesville.) Both were, and
are. good. The objection to the lirst
is its cost, and to the second, the
wearing out of the filtering discs.
Today, in the so-called "Rapid"
filter, patented April 4th, the good
points of both filters are combined.
I have the "Rapid, " and will be glad
to show it.
