Commissioner Watson and his staff
of grain experts are a little late in
their cainpaign, but a little more agi
vition and information will not hurt.
I'Phe fact that so much grain is be

No Lover of the Bath.
Swinburne evidently found baths
a source of inspiration, -for he told
Edmund Gosse that "Baudelaire" was
.written in a Turkish bath. Doctor
'Johnson, on the other hand, regarded
them with suspicion. When an old
Lichileld friend, showing him .over a
hiouse built specially for him, dilated
on the advantage of the bathroom,
the doctor said: "Sir, are you well?"
"Quite well, thank you, doctor," was
the reply. "Then, sir let well alone.
I hate immersion."
Convict's Pet Mouse.
On completion of a three years' sen
tence, a convict has left Peterhead
penitentiary, Aberdeenshire, Scotland,
accompanied by the companion of his
Imprisonment, a brown mouse. He
caught it while working in the quar
,rIes shortly after his arrival at Peter
head. The mouse shared its captor's
meals, and in 12 months had learned
a variety of tricks, such as eating out
'of the convict's hand and sitting up at
the word of command.
Evidently a Genius.
He put every cent he had into an
"Uncle Tom's Cabin" show, and at the
end of four weeks his treasurer, with
$400 to the good, skipped out durhig
the night. So he said to himself:
"I'll catch the cus," and set the blood
hounds they had in the show on his
trail. "Catch him?" he said, in speaR
ing of it later. "Sure they did. They
caught up with him, and he put chains
around their necks, and started an
Knowledge is like the coin of ex
change. A man is justified, to a 'de
gree, in taking pride In its possession,
if he himself worked over the gold
of it and tried to coin it, or, at least,
it he came by it honestly, already test

thing of the kind, but got it from some
passer-by who threw it in his face,
then what ground has he to boast of
Method in Their Living.
"Don't you think, dear," began
Comfy, "that our next door neighbors,
the Scrubbs, are putting on a great
deal too much style, considering the
fact that they never know from day
to day where the next meal is coining
from?" "Well," replied Mrs. Comfy,
"you see, the more style they put on
the more likely they are to be invited
out to dinner."
Firemen in Amsterdiam have little
idle time. Many of them are skilled

explained, "but I never have loved
