Man of Experience Awards Palm to ) Roast Duck. ? "I was reading a. magazine article .the, other day-I'm always reading something," said the hardware mer .ehant, "that had it that Dr. Kennedy had discovered that birds have a sense of humor. One of his anecdotes was to the effect that a robin was feeding heriyoung with earthworms, when a j?apow, feigning lameness, appeared on the edge of the nest with open mouth and claimed a share of the meal. The tobin looked the intruder over, picked up a bit of dead twig that resembled* a worm, and hastily thrust it into his throat. The crow was so greedy that he nearly choked to death before he realized that he had been deceived. I can easily believe that, but I've al ways thought that the bird whose sense of humor was most highly de veloped was the duck. A roast duck will have more fun with you in a dumb, solemn kind of way than any thing that wears feathers. I don't except women or Indians. 'I've taken carving lessons and 1 know just where the joints of a duck ought to be, but they're" never whero they ought to be: they're always somewhere else. What's worse, they're never located alike in any two ducks. Again? if you have one duck you can't make it go around, and if you have more than one there's too much. And the way-a duck'II bound and spring off the knife and go under the table with' you, if you're not careful, is won derful. A roast duck, always seems to say to me: " 'You've-got me where I can't do a lot to you, but you'll be sorrier than I am, at that, before we're through with one another.' " LONDON HOUSES COME HIGH.

Arizona Claims This Wonder In Its Famous Petrified Forest. There ls unending variety of mar velous sights to be seen in the pet rifi?d^oi?st fcovering thousands of ?er?is in the .eastern part of Arizona, but what IsTegarded as the . greatest ^i;^jpf_all is the bridge of petrified wood. ?ssS??w?MS-^ trunk span " / ning a, canyon-like ravine fifty feet wide--a bridge of agate and jasper overhanging tho only clump of living trees found-within the forest's bord ers. Bach end of the log is embed '^d'ed -in shale and sandstone; leaving 100-feet of it either wholly or partly exposed. How much of its length still remains completely buried is un known, but each year the action of the elements brings more into view. So far, time has graciously spared the integrity of this natural curiosity, but in the last few years the log has begun to show signs of yielding to the natural inclination of petrified trees ?ndin several places transverse cracks, appear. Fearing that the bridge Would tumble to destruction the gov ernment has recently had two stone abutments erected under it, making of . .it a-bridge of three spans. This no doubt will preserve It for at least sev ?fl^ra! years yet. r;.A Kipling Souvenir, -: Of an interesting Kipling relic,' Charles Warren Stoddard writes: ?^Li?lhe "object that first caught my ?

JThe purchasers of the Tennessee Manufacturing Co.'s hig cotton mill plant will spend $205,000 foi- new machinery with which to fit up Mill No. 2, which is to be run by W. R. Odell and associates. Not long since it was announced that Mr. Odell, of North Carolina, and a number of local capitalists had purchased the Tennes see Manufacturing Co.'s property in North Nashville for $145,000. That these gentlemen are in earnest is shown by the fact that they have taken out their charter, that it has been registered at the office of the Secretary of State and the company is now in existence. The capital stock of the company is placed at $200,000, and the new concern is to be known by the corporate name of the Warioto Cotton Mills. The purchasers will hardly get possesion of the property, however, before July 1, 1906, owing \ y the fact that George Goodwin has a lease on it until that time."

He expects to spend several hundred thousand dollars in developing this power; and will begin work at once. Within a radius of 40 miles there is now being used more , than 50,000 ?team horse power, at'a cost pf from $36 to . $50 per horse power, all of .which he. will be in a position to furnish at a lower rate. "The shoals are located about half-way between Washington and Tiberton, and as soon as the power is developed Mr. Fitz . patrick will have all rarangements made for building an electric line be tween thc two places. He also ex pects to build... a- cotton factory at Washington and at the Shoals. Textile Notes. - The State has chartered the Flora Cotton Mill Company to build and operate mills there to manufacture yarns and cloth. The authorized cap ital stock is $400,000, of which $15,000 has been paid in by Henry W. Lily,. W. D. McNeill and J. K.'S. #ay.

Mr. Nixon, when seen in re gard to the matter, refused to make any statement except to admit that the mill would be re-opened, but it is generally rumored on the street that the corporation intends building up the property with thc intention of making a sale, . The Rhode IslandMill ps having plans and specifications prepared for the erection of a 100 by 200 foot ad dition to its building.. It was announ ced in June that the enlargement had been decided upon and that 200 looms would he installed. The looms will weave cotton blankets. About $12, 000 will be the cost of improvements. The Swift Manufacturing Company will probably let the contract for its new cotton mill about October 1. The Eagle and Phoenix Mills have received two more car -loads of looms for their new weaving rooms, which are being fitted with four box Cromp ton & Knowles looms. Six more cars are expected in a few days. will be quite a handsome improvement and will mean something like $100,000 more invested in cotton manufactu ring in Columbus.

The South Carolina section of tho climate and crop service of the De partment of Agriculture issues the following official bulletin of weather and crop conditions for the past week : The week ending Monday, Septem ber 25th, was one of extreme heat, with the weekly mean temperature about six degrees per day above nor mal. The temperature extremes were a maximum of 9S degrees at Bates burg and Blackville on the 20th and a minimum of 57 at. Spartanburg on the 23rd. There was very little cloud iness in thc western portion and con siderable in the eastern and south eastern parts. Drought continues in the central and western counties, while the east ern and southern counties had copi ous rains on the 20th and 21st, amounting in many places to between one and two inches. A few localities had beneficial showers in the west, but over the larger part of that sec tion of thc State lhere was no rain or merely a trace. ' . The weather was favorable foi gathering crops, except in a few east ern localities, and much hay was sav ed in fine condition, and fair progress was made iii cutting- and curing pea vines. Over the larger portion of the State the ground is too dry for plow ing and fall seeding operations, and less than thc usual amount of oats, or other grains have been sown. The dry weather was also inimical to late corn, fall root crops and pastures. Over the easteru cum tics minor crops have sufficient moisture and are do ing well. Cotton continacs to open rapidly in all sections, and it is opening prema turely over a large portion ot' the western half of thc State, but there is no perceptible change in the con dition of the crop, nor in the pros pective yield which is smaller than last year in all parts: The weather was favorable for picking, with some interruption in the east, where some open cotton was damaged by rain both this and last week. Fall truck was favored by the rains on the 21st, but some hay on the ground was damaged along the coast. In other parts of the State haying progressed rapidly and favorably. J. W.

The attorney general has advised recently that the deed from the sink ing fund commission to thc Cape Ro main Land and Improvement company is void. This deed is recorded in book C of duplicate titles, and dated February 12, 1398. The reason that it is said to be void is because it attempts to convey lands under navi gable waters of the State. The sink ing fund commission adopted the fol lowing resolution. "That the clerk of the commission notify ali claimants under s?id deed that they will be treated as tresspassers on the prop erty attempted to be conveyed there by.'" The Union and Buffalo Mills. Union, Special.-Thc situation in regard to the condition of ai?airs at the Union and Buffalo mills remains unchanged and everything has been extremely quiet. The current ru mors of the past several days have died out and everywhere the opinion is expressed that the mills will.con tinue and that there will be neither panic nor financial disaster.

Very absurd was a due/ which was fought not long ago in front of the railway station at Antwerp. Two bur gesses of Liege, after a day's sightsee ing, adjourned ? to a cafe for refresh ment, and there began a dispute which led to hot words and finally to blows. Nothing but blood could efface the mutual insults, but as no deadly wea pons were available the caf? proprie tor suggested that the arfair could be just as well settled with douches, and he provided each combatant with a portable waterplpe. For several min utes the- duelists leveled their chilly* weapons at each other; until, drench ed to the skin, their passions were so effectually cooled they were glad to shahe hands and rush away to change their garments. Intelligence vs. Docility. Will people who talk about dogs ever learn to differentiate between In telligence ? and docility? The word "intelligent" is used almost universal ly in talking and writing, when peo ple1 mean, docility; 1. e., the readiness of the animal to accept instruction, says Joseph A. Graham in Outing. Now, as in human beings, docility is likely to be an evidence of second rate intelligence, and tho degree of intelligence is likely to appear when the animal is doing things on his own hook. It makes no great difference, but to the man who tries to think accurately the constant parado of an obedient animal as one cf excepronal mental ability is painful. Rich Sago Pudding.-Here is a rec; ipe for the favorite pudding of a housekeeper of the last generation, who served it to ber family after the simple Sunday dinner customary ia her day: Soak six heaping teaspoon fuls of sago in a quart of sweet milk for five hours. Then add a quart of boiling milk. Cook till soft. Beat the yolks of six eggs in a pudding dish with a teacup of sugar and a lit tle nutmeg. Then when the sago is soft stir it into the eggs and sugar. , Bake twenty minutes. A'^r the pud ding has been set away to cool beat up the whites of the six eggs until they are a stiff froth and fold into 'them three tablespoonfuls of sugar. Spread this meringue over the top of the pudding and brown it in the oven. A little jelly ls sometimes spread over the pudding before adding the mer ineue. LOGICAL DEDUCTION.

And in stores, mills and shops tens of thousands arc on the never-ceasing treadmill, earning their daily bread. All a-e subject to the same physical laws; all suffer alike from the same physical disturbance, and the nature of their duties, in many cases, quickly drifts them into the horrors of ail kinds of female complaints, ovarian troubles, ulceration, falling and dis placements of the womb, leucorrhoa, or perhaps irregularity or suppression of "monthly periods,'' causing back ache, nervousness, irritability and lassitude. Women who stand on their feet all day are more susceptible to these troubles than others. They especially require an invigorat ing;, sustaining medicine which will strengthen the female organism and enable them to bear easily the fatigues of the clay, to sleep well at night, and to rise refreshed and cheerful. How distressing to see a woman struggling to earn a livelihood or per form her household duties when her back and head are aching, she is so tired she can hardly drag about or standup, and every movement causes pain, the origin of which is due to some derangement of the female or ganism.
