Owen JTohnson, back from the
French lines, reports that "the prin-I

not in the trenches are eating and
sleeping--not worrying about the war.
A visitor in France hears more hearty
laughter in an hour at the front than
In a week behind the lines."

The waiter seemed about to protest

looked round and found everyone with

Looking further, I saw another waiter
setting down before another man a

there's a reason. *1
Likewise the goats that graze on
the greensward of an Italian colony in
Cosgrove street, off Haines - atr4et,
"have the goat" of many residents of
Germantown and Chestnut Hill..
Recently the police have been .irri
tated by telephone calls from irate
householders telling how goats were
chewing up the landscape.
Matters came to a climax when Mrs.
'Helen Carr of 450 Cosgrove street
telephoned to the Germantowln golfee
station that her daughter could -not go
to school because she was afraid to
venture where the goats wQuld shove
her off, the sidewalk and chew up aWr
dress. The police decided to suppreba
the goats then and there. i ,patrot
wagon loaded to the gunwals started
for the goats.
The policemen knew where the
goats belonged. They knew that Fe
lix Puscano, 616 Haines street, kept
the goats for the milk they gave for
the poor people of the Italian colony,
And the policemen heaped maledic
tions upon the head of Joe Puscano,
the seven-year-old shepherd of the
herd, whose duty it was to keep the
goats off the lawns.
After half an hour's exercise the po
licemen got the eight goats into the
police wagon and took them to the
station house on East Haines street.
They were locked up in horse stalls,
like any other prisoners. Came an
hour later Felix and his shepherd son,
begging for the goats. It was supper
time and the colony wanted its daily
rations of goats' milk.
After much parley the "billies" were
released-under bail to keep the peace.

TOO MUCH FOR THE WORM
Combination of Silver and Copper
Makes its imprisonment a Most
A strange and amvuing experiement
is described by G. Hugo in the .Elec
trical Experimenter, as follows:
Place a copper coin on a silver coin;
the former should be at least three
sixteenths of an inch smaller all
around than the latter. A cent and
a half-dollar will do; an English half
penny and a silver dollar will do bet
ter, because they are larger. On the
copper coin place an ordinary earth
worm and watch it try to crawl off.
It cannot do it, for the instant Its
damp body, which is in contact wvith
the copper, touches the silver it starts
a current of electricity that gives it
a shock. Trho shock makes the worm
recoil. It tries again, but each time
its head touches the silver 'it gets the
shock and Boon finds it is more com
fortable to stay on the copper coin.
Of course the current thus produced
is very slight, but it is quito enough
for the worm.
Problem for the Court.
A perplexing problem in bovine ju
risprudence recently taxed the legal
attainments of local jurists, says the
Portland Oregonian. A hull and an
automobile tried to occupy the same
space at the same time, in conse
quence of which the bull went td his
final reward to ap~pear~ before the
great high court whence no appeals
lie, while the owner appeared before
a more mundane tribunal, claiming
damages. The theory of the defense
was that the collision having occurred
at night the bull was guilty of contrib
utory negligence in slot having lights.
The plaintiff promptly pointed out that
the bull had no horns to serve as chan
deliers. Thereupon the defendant In
sisted that tail lights should have been
furnished. Charles J. Schnabel and
Z. B. Ofner, attorneys for the plain
tiff, immediately called the court's at
tention to the fact that the bull had
two bull's eyes, which served the same
purpose, in which view Judge Joseph
H. Jones concurred.
