Among the interior decorations or a

An afternoon or two ago an elderly
couple,, evidently from the rural dis
tricts, came into tbe restaurant and
took a seat. They gave their order and
then began to look aronnd. .
'That's a handsome palm, Henry I
exclaimed the woman, pointing to the
largest specimen. "I wonder if it grew
that big in here?" .
'Of course it didn t, replied the
man, witn a iook oi superior wiuuum.
"It was raised down in Floridy. That s
where they all grow, and then they are
shipped up here,"
Just then one or the restanrant s at
taches approached the palm with a
dampcloth in his hand. Taking hold of
one of the leaves he yanked it irom the
stem and began to rnb it vigorously
with tbe cloth. When he had cleaned
the leaf to his satisfaction, be replaced
it and pulled another. By this time
"Henry's" face was a study, as was
also that of his companion.

Joke on the Major.
The major, just returned from Bos'
ton, tells in strict confidence this story:
'I had engaged my berth and was
standing on the rear platform five min
utes before the train prilled ont of the
Park square depot, when a middle aged
woman and a handsome girl, both la
dies, passed me, and entered the car,
accompanied by a gentlemanly looking
chap who carried their baggage. A mo
ment later this fellow rushed np to me
and. said he was in a most embarrassing
position, had his sister and mother
aboard and had lost his mileage book,
He would introduce me to them ' and
glvQjue any security for $25. I said 1
needed neither introduction nor eecur

to spare. Be insisted on giving me ms
diamond scarfpin, and then rushed into
the station to see if he could get more
cash. . As the train pulled out without
him he came running wildly after it,
but had to give'it np.

tentatively. 'Was that man annoying

An old friend of the late ex-Governor
Oglesby telh a reminiscence of a valise.
Ho was traveling through the state and
met the governor on the train.
When they were seated, the governor
drew out a valise that had a peculiar
and handy way of being opened from
the top. It was made of strong leather
and bad tegs pasted all over it.
"1 carried this valise through the
Holy Land," said the governor. "I
think a great deal of it. "
"I suppose it brings np some pleas
ant memories," suggested tbe other
"More than that," was the reply,
ana the keen eyes ol tbe governor
twinkled as he reached down and
touched a button and the valise opened
Immediately, but cautiously, at the top.
It opened wide enough to admit a hand
and to permit it to withdraw with a
black bottle in its clutch.
"This is a great valise. I can get a
bottle ont of it, and nobody ever sees

general ignorance, was brought down
to the courthouse to receive tbe rights

Body of Ovila Blondin Found.
The body of Ovila Blondin was found
about 6 p. m. Wednesday under peculiar
circumstances. S. D.McLeod and Thomas
O'Brien, who had baen working on the log
pile ot the International Paper company in
North Walpole, had . finished the, day's
work and were crossing the river headed
for the Vermont ride. There was a strong
south wind which carried an odor and on
looking about they saw a body floating
near one of the piers. They towed it to
the Vermont bank and notified the authori
ties. Although decayed past recognition
all parties suspected it was the body of the
long lost Blondin, and the members ot the
family confirmed this suspicion as soon as
they had examined the clothing. .
It was during the forenoon of last Octo
ber 28 when Blondin suddenly left the
shop of Derby & Ball where he was em
ployed aa a varnisher and was last seen
running up Rockingham street and in tbe
direction oi the river. There is now no
doubt that he was insane and that he com
mitted suicide by drowning. The wonder
is how the body remained out ot sight and
probably nnder water all these months It
is supposed that the body became partly
covered with dirt and gravel and in that
way waa held to the bottom -ol the river.
It is also thought that the severe thunder
shower ot Wednesday raised it to the sur
face. At any rate there was a large quan
tity oi dirt about the clothing indicating
that the body had been floating only a
short time.

"H'm, yon see, eggs are 18 cents

egg. The woman would not pay a half
cent too much, and, as I did not want
tosell the egg for .1 cent, she paid 2
cents and I gave her the slip good for

Helping- a Tartar.
A singular custom prevails among
tbe Tartars or Kurds. If a man gets into
difficulties L e., loses bis cattle or
other movable property he pcurs a
little brown sugar into a piece of col
ored cloth, ties it np and carries one
sncb parcel to each of his friends and
acquaintances. In return be is pre
sented, according to circumstances,
with a cow, or sheep, or a sum of mon

Multiplied Value In
twice as well made and cost twice as
much to make as imitating machines. They
run with half the power, half the speed and
half the wear, require but half the care and
last twice aa long as other separators. Under
harder conditions their work is doubly efficient,
and under all conditions they save twice as
much as other separators over setting systems.
Their sales are ten times those of all other ma
chines combined. Their price is no greater
but on the contrary less than cheaply made
imitating machines in proportion to actual
capacity, regardless of overwhelming superi
ority in every feature of separator efficiency.

Where Soldiers Must Swim.
In tbe Dutch - army a man mnst be
able to swim as well as to fight. More
over, if he is in the cavalry he mnst
have a horse which will take a river as
easily as a bunter takes a fence.
Swimming maneuvers are part or the
regular drill there. Collapsible canvas
boats, manned by a few oarsmen, lead
the horses, so that they do not attempt
to land on stone quays and other diffi
cult points. Tbe men swim across with
their horses and on them. They do it in
swimming costume and in all the ac
couterments of war.
There are few nautical emergencies
for which the Dutch army is not pre
pared. Some of the officers have even
reached a degree of proficiency that not
only their horses and kit cross the river
with them, but their pet dogs sit upon
their shoulders and are borne over al
most without getting wet Stray

Trying It on a Dot;.
The sultan of Turkey is most in
quisitive as to what is said and written
about him abroad. Every day transla
tions are laid before him from the
newspapers of the world, and these are
all closely perused. His majesty, by the
way, is a bad hand at suffering.
At one time he wanted to have an
aching tooth removed and dared not, ,
Eight slaves had molars drawn ont in
bis presence that he might have an op
portunity of judging the extent of suf
fering entailed, and finally the snltan
decided that he won Id rather bear the
pain than undergo such an ordeal.
. Cleaning- the Chimney.
An easy way to clean a chimney of
soot has been discovered by a Maine
man. Instead of going to the top of
the. chimney and probing with rods, he
begins, at the bottom. There an open
ing is made, and he fires npward a re
volver charged With a blank cartridge
The concussion, it is said, will clean
ont tbe soot He also claims that the
burning of a piece pf zinc in a stove
will clear the stove and its funnel of
loot. . . V
