COST OF MARRIAGES Some People Try to See, How Much Can Be Spent Amusing 8tory of Clergyman In Lon don Who Was Out for All the Cash He Could Get 8ome of Acces sories He Would Furnish. London. Some of the fashionable weddings that have taken place lately would seem to Indicate that the people concerned were anxious to see bow much money could be spent on the af fair. In England the ceremony is much more complicated. The most usual form of marriage is by "banns." Notice is given to the clergyman of the church where the young couple desire to get married, the announcement la given out three Sundays running be fore the wedding day, and for this the bridegroom pays the clerk 60 cents. If neither of the parties live In this par ish, one or other of them must do so for three weeks before the ceremony takes place, but this condition is often filled by the bridegroom taking a room and putting a stick or bag in it for the required time. Of course, you have to pay the cler gyman something for performing the ceremony for you, and the legal fee Is $1.25, with 50 cents to the clerk, and a further 60 cents for a copy of the cer tificate of marriage, but each clergy man asks what he chooses, and some of them place their services rather . high. Recently a young couple who live in the suburbs decided to get married at one of the churches in the Strand, in London, as this was a convenient cen ter for all their friends, and also near Charing Cross station, from which they were starting for Paris immediately after the ceremony. It was to be a quiet affair, no bridesmaids, no bou quets, no carriages, no red carpet, etc. So one fine morning the brldes's father started off to find the Incumbent of one of these London churches, an in dividual with a double-barreled name r and, incidentally, a double-barreled lo quacity as well. After a great effort the father got him to talk about the wedding, and finally inquired the fee. "The fee would be 25," said his reverence. "And, of course, you would like some music? We supply that and it woeld be $5." The father was about to say something, when the padre broke in again: "And you would like some red carpet put down, I suppose? We supply that for $5." "Oh," began the man out of whose pocket the money was to come for all this, when" "And if it's a wet day, you would re Quire an awning," continued the clergy man. "We supply the awning and the fee would be $5." "Yes." gasped the father, casting about in his mind for a way of escape, when the other went on: - "And, of course, yon would have some flowers. My daughter always does the flowers, and Tm sere the would be delighted to do them for you." Before the astonlsheo. ratner could reply, the clergyman rang the . bell and requested the servant who answered It to ask "Miss Louie" to step In." "Miss Louie" duly arrived, and expressed herself enchanted at the prospect of doing the flowers tor the wedding. "And what do yon think it would . cost, dear?" asked Mr father. "Do you suppose you could do It for $25 H As this last straw was laid on the poor victim's back, he joused himself and managed to stammer that he mast ' consult his daughter before making the final arrangements, and made for the ioor. trusting to escape. But the cler gyman had reserved a parting shot. Taking P mafl paper-covered book r-cti tfce tet'e. Be said: "jtlt is a sn&n book on the fclatary t; tla curci. I am sure your daubs Ik . it ter will like to read all about It, as she is thinking of being married there." "Thank you; I'll give it to her," said the Innocent man. "That'll be 25 cents," said his rev erence, and the unfortunate father placed the money on the table and fled for hla life. Needless to say the mar riage did not take place at his church. FISHHOOKS BAD FOR FOWLS Pennsylvania Chicken Fancier lieves Old 8aylng Is In Need of Revision. Be- Lewlston, Pa. John B. Clemmens, a Pennsylvania railroad signalman at Newton Hamilton, Is of the opinion that the old saying, "Never count your chickens until they are hatched," could be well amended to read "Never count your chickens." Clemmens is a chick en fancier and had a flock of half grown games of which he was espe cially proud. The other day his two sons returned from a fishing trip and threw a num ber of large eel hooks, baited with pieces of veal, on the bank at the boat landing. An hour later there was a great com motion among the flock of games and an investigation showed that each had swallowed a chunk of veal and an eel book with it Clemmens killed six of the chickens in removing the hooks.

A new germ, as yet unnamed, has just been discovered in Kansas City. It is a hot weather oacillua and affects young and old alike, being particularly noxious in adults, it is said, and producing a chronic case of what ordinarily Is called the "grouch." The discoverers of this germ are Dr. E. L. Mathls, chief probation offi cer, and his assistants, who constant ly are making a study of human na ture and, by the way, this particular bug is one which attacks human na ture only. "It is a hot weather bug." said Doc tor Mathlas, "and can produce the worst case of grouch in a short time that yon ever saw. "Just now we Juvenile officers have little to do so far as the Juvenile court Is concerned, but we are kept busy as bees looking after what we call hot weather business. "Somehow or other, this hot weath er seems to 'peeve everybody. It takes the form of grouch in adults and the form 'of what the grown-ups are pleased to call 'devilment' in children. "A man lies down to take a nap of a hot afternoon. He is Just tuckered out by the heat, he says, and a. nap will straighten him out Just as iie gets comfortably settled, boys or girls to the neighborhood begin to romp, and, of course, they call back and forth, and the would-be napper Is an noyed.

Yves De Villers, the representative for the Vendome aeroplane, was at MIneola. L. I., the other day, and said that the little monoplanes are being brought to this country as quickly as possible.

The Vendome monoplane is the work of Raoul Vendome, a French builder of aeroplanes. It is equipped with a 12-horaepower Anzanl motor, and complete, ready for flying, weighs 180 pounds.

"At that time my baby's face was like a raw and bleed ing piece of meat Medicine from three different physicians, besides va rious salves recommended by friends, all seemed to moke tho Eczema worse. Then another mother recommended Reslnol Ointment which I procured at once, although I had no more faith In It than in the rest I had tried; but never did I spend fifty cents to better advantage. The first and second days I noticed a remarkable change, and now at the end of the third week, my pretty blue-eyed, rosy-cheeked baby is perfectly well again. I think the cure was surely something remarkable. Reslnol Ointment and Soap did in three weeks what everything else failed to do in four months.

From several Investigations that have been made by the National , As sociation for the Study and Preven tion of Tuberculosis it is estimated that on an average about 15 per cent of the prison population of the country la afflicted with tuberculosis. On this basis, out of the 80,000 prison ers housed in the penal institutions of the United States at any given time, no less than 12,000 are infected with the disease. If the Philippine islands and other Insular possessions were taken into consideration the number would be much larger. Some of the prisons of Pennsylvania, Kan sas and Ohio show such shocking con ditions with reference to tuberculosis that many wardens admit that these, places of detention are death traps. Similar conditions could be found in almost every state, and in the major ity of cases the only sure remedy is the destruction of the old buildings and the erection of new ones. Advice.
