In Tli ‘ Good Old Tim©*.” Not until February of 1812 did the people of Kentucky know that Madi son was elected President in the previous November. In 1834 one of the leading rail- , roads of the United States printed on its time table. “The locomotive will leave the depot every day at 10 o’clock if the weather is fair. The first typewriter was received by the public with suspicion. II seemed subversive of existing con ditions. A reporter who took one into a courtroom first proved its real worth. In England, some centuries ago, if an ordinary workman without per mission'rnoved from one parish tu another In search of Fork or better wages he was branded with a hot iron. When Benjamin Franklin first thought of starting a newspaper in Philadelphia many of bis friends ad vised against it, because there was a paper published in Boston. Some of them doubted that the country would be able to support two news papers. When Thomas Jefferson was elec ted President of the United States, on February 17, 1801, after one of the most exciting political campaigns in our history, the news did not reach the successful candidate for as many days as it now takes hours to transmit the result of a President ial election to the whole civilised world. When, In 1809, Richard Trevi thick uttered the following words there were many who considered him an insane, dangerous person: “The present generation will use canals, the next will prefer rail roads with horse, but their more enlightened successors will employ steam carriages on railways as tbs perfection of the art of conveyance." When Benjamin Franklin first took the coach from Philadelphia to New York he spent fourdays on the journey. He tells us that as the old driver jogged along he spent bis time knitting stockings. Twostage coaches and eight horses sufficed for all the bommeree that was carried on between Boston and New York and in winter the journey occupied a week. Napoleon at the height of his power could not command our every day conveniences, such as steam heat, running water, bath and sani tary plumbing, gas, electric light, railroads, steamboats, the telegraph, the telephone, the phonograph, dally newspapers, magasines and a thou sand other blessings which are now part of the dally necessities of even manual laborers. • - - m • aa. ft Twlee Toll Tale. We wish to repeat what he have said once before in these columns that Elliott’s Emulsified Oil Lini ment is the best Lininent ever pro duced for use in the family and on animals. Best for rheumatism, lameness, stiffness and soreness of joints or muscles. Best for bruises, contusions, sprains and swellings.

In due time the trousers were sent home end tried on, whereupon the Senator sent for the tailor and proceeded to open fire. “What in the blankety blank blank have you done with these trousers?” be demanded to know. "You told me to make them skin tight sir, "faltered the tailor. "Yes, but by the great horn spoon, you overdid it," roared the Senator; "I can sit down in my skin, bull can’t in these pants."

Alfred H. Love, of Philadelphia, ’ president of the Universal Peace > | Union, was talking on the topic, : peculiarly congenial to him, of kind- j ness. Ssld he: "I once knew a remarkably kind boy. He was a great angler. There! was a trout stream in bis neighbor-! hood that ran through a rich man's | estate. Permits to fish the stream could now and then bp obtained, and the boy was lucky enough to have a permit. "One day be was fishing with another boy, when a gamekeeper suddenly darted forth from a thicket. The lad with the permit uttered a cry of fright, dropped his rod and ran off at top speed. The game keeper pursued. "For about s half mile the game keeper was led a swift and difficult chase. Then, worn out, the boy baited. The man seised him by the arm and said between pants : " 'Have you a permit to fish on this estate?" “ ‘Yes, to be sure,' said the boy, quietly. ' "‘Youhave? Then show it tome.’ "The boy drew the permit from bis pocket. The man examined it and frowned in perplexity and anger. “ ‘Why did you run when you had this permit ?’ be asked. ' *' 'To let the other boy get away,’ i was the reply. 'He didn't have > nonet’"—Harper’s Weekly. ii- ■ ' " ft Call, a Cough—Oonramptlflß.
