The Middle Splash. "That Is impossible," said Senator Aldrich gf a socialistic proposition. He luughed. "In its impossibility," he went on, "it reminds me of Joe Jobson's middle splash. "Joe Jobson, a very Ignorant and pig-headed chap, presented himself at the church with his infant son for the christening. The following dialogue then took place between Jobson anl the minister. " 'What name do you give this child?' " "Peter Ananias Jobson.' ""Ananias?' I refuse to christen the child in that name. Do you know who Ananias was?' " 'I don't know who he was; and, what's more, I don't care.' " "But Ananias was the greatest liar in all Biblical history.' "'Well, that's nothing to me. My baby ain't no liar, so what's the difference? I want him christened Ananias because I like the sound of it.' " 'I won't do it. 1 will christen the child Peter Jeremiah Jobson.' "And the minister was as good as his word, and as he repeated each name he sprinkled a little water on the infant's face. " 'And I rub out that middle splash,' said the father, heatedly. He rubbed his sleeve across the child's face and sprinkled a little more water over It. 'I rub out that middle splash, substitute this one for it, and christen him Peter Ananias Jobson. And that settles it.' "?Seattle Post-Intelligencer. As Roebottom Worked.?W. P. Ayer, the advertising agent, at the dinner in Philadelphia in honor of his firm's fortieth anniversary, said that to succeed in advertising required hard work. "The successes in this business are stupendous, he said, "but some folks think that working as Roebottom of Camden worked a man can build up a great advertising fortune. "Roebottom was a roofer. He was engaged on a Mickle street house. One day, as he was lunching, he was heard to give a yell of pain. " 'What's the matter, Roebottom?' a carpenter asked. 44 <T ' thn rAnfnr JL 6 is l a xicvii tax mj ivui, wv ?vv*v? answered. " 'Well, why don't you pull It out?" said the carpenter. " 'What! In my dinner hour?' yelled Roebottom, reproachfully."?Philadelphia Record. Wrong Again.?A political speaker was attacking the government of the day with more venom than reason. A man at the back of the hall at last cried out: "You're wrong, sir!" A little nettled, the orator continued, without heeding. Presently, In answer to another strong assertion, came again, "You've wrong, sir!" The speaker looked angry, but continued on the warpath. "You've wrong, air!" again rang out Angrily addressing the persistent one, the orator cried. "Look here, I could tell this man something about this government which would make his hair stand on end!" "You're wrong again, sir!" came exultantly from the critic, as he stood up and removed his hat. His head was as bald as the proverbial billiard ball. -Tit-Bits. Overworked Snake.?The new and very stringent prohibitory law which goes into effect in Kansas has revived an old story on the subject. A stranger went into a Kansas drug store and asked for some whisky. "I can't sell you any whisky," said the druggist. "But I'm sick," persisted the stranger. "That won't help any," replied the druggist. "It don't make any difference. I can't sell you any whisky for being sick." "Well, what can you sell it to me for?" asked the stranger. "The only thing we can sell whisky for in this town," said the druggist, "is for snake bites. Hold up now! Don't ask me where to get bitten. No use. There is only one snake in town, and he is engaged for three weeks ahead." ?Kansas City Journal. Shopping in Sassafras.?Mrs. Maude Darrell Hoffman, a Dioneer of country week work, was praising in Hartford the country vacation. "A country vacation is better than a seashore one," she said. "You see things so much quainter. And the further into the country you go, the quainter becomes the things you see. "I once spent August in a village called the Head of Sassafras, a village down in Maryland. The postofflce there was the general store. The morning after my arrival I went to the general store for my mail. "A little girl preceded me with an egg in her hand. " 'Gimme an egt's worth of tea, please,' I heard her say to the postmaster-storekeeper; "and ma says ye might weigh out an egg's worth or sugar, too, for the black hen's a-cluckin", and I'll be up again in a minute.' " ?Philadelphia Bulletin. After the Show.?A well-dressed man, said to be an Englishman, has been arrested in Montmartre, Paris, on a charge of tendering bad half-sovereigns for dinners and entertainments. Which reminds us of the story about the touring company which has been doing very bad business in "the smalls." While the proprietor and sole responsible manager was standing outside the temporary theatre (the Corn Exchange) a very small boy with a very large melon arrived and proposed to barter the fruit for a seat in the gallery The bargain was duly concluded, and the scene now changes to the interior of the theatre after the performance: "Boy," says the manager severely, "that melon was rotten." "That's all right," returns the youthful critic, "so was yer show."?London Globe. Wantftri fivmnathv ?Tn tho lender of a band in Omaha, jocularly spoken of In that locality as "the worst in seven different states," there once came a man with a request that the band play at a cousin's funeral. "Is it a military' funeral?" asked the leader. "Not at all," was the reply. "My cousin was no military man?in fact, he was never even interested in matters military. Nevertheless, it was his express wish that your band should play at his funeral." The leader was surprised and flattered. "Is that so?" he asked. "Yes," responded the other. "He said he wanted everybody in Omaha to be sorry that he died."?Harper's Magazine. iWisccUanrouo ^ratling. SOUTH CAROLINA AND VERMONT Mr. W. D. Grist Makes Comparisons For a Yankoo Newspaper. Rutland, VL, Daily Herald, Aug. 3. "Why, my dear sir, I hardly knowhow or where to begin to tell you; but I am not far from the literal truth when I tell you that the dominating impression in my mind at this moment is one of keen disappointment?disnnnnlntmpnt nrlsintr out of reRret that I ? I did not bring my wife and come prepared to stay at least two or three weeks. With your delightful little city I am simply charmed, and as to your splendid state, I am hardly ready to speak with any degree of assurance, because my preconceived ideas have been completely shattered, and I have not yet been able to decide that the new picture forming in my mind will be quite grand enough to cover conditions as they actually exist. Yes, you have a fine city and a great state." The speaker was W. D. Grist, editor of the Yorkville, South Carolina, J Enquirer. Mr. Grist had run out from New York to pay a short visit to his friend, John W. Kellette of No. 22 Church street. He came into Rutland Saturday morning on the sleeper, and the Herald reporter caught him yesterday morning at the staMon as he was leaving for home. The pretty little speech j.tst quoted came out in reply to the reporter's question as to what this rather unusual visitor thought of Rutland as a city and Vermont as a state, and as Mr. Grist's paper is conceded to be one of the national models in country journalism, and as he himself Is one of the leading editors of his stat'>, the reporter felt quite sure that his Impressions of the country would be interesting. "And what seems to impress you most?" the reporter asked next. "Your people?the frank ari open friendliness of all I have had the pleasure of meeting personally, and the high type of American citizenship that seems to pervade your social and business atmosphere," answered Mr. Grist promptly and continuing with characteristic southern enthusiasm) he went on to remark: "Old Champlain was quite happy in the name he gave your state; but I don't see that he deserves much credit for that, for up here all nature still spells 'Vermont,' and if the Frenchman had not already done so, it would only remain for just anybody to pronounce the name. "It occurs to me, however, that if a; Martian explorer should alight among you now, while the name he would | give your state might very well remain the same, he would somehow attach it to your people as well as to your beautiful green hills and valleys." "But won't you give us some of the most strikingly noticeable differences that occur to you as between your country and this?" still further pursued the reporter. "You are now leading in the direction of soil, climate and productions, I assume," said the southerner, after a few moments' reflection, "because these are necessarily the basis of the most marked differences between the two localities. We have a very satisfactory climate in my part of the country'. The temperature sometimes goes up to 100 degrees in the shade; but owing to about the right humidity the heat is seldom oppressive. We sleep under light blankets during the latter part of most nights; but it is not nearly so cool down there as it is up here. "I have known eight or ten degrees below zero in winter, but this does not occur more than once in a half dozen or so years, the average winter temperature being not far above the frost line. "We can raise almost anything that grows out of the ground other than tropical plants; but do not raise a great deal of anything besides cotton and corn." "How about the fertility of your soil?" he was asked. "I have known more than 800 bushels of Irish (white) potatoes to be grown on an acre; but I do not know a farmer who grows enough potatoes to supply his own family. We do not use anything like as many potatoes as you do, but we do use about as many of your raising as we do of our own raising. Our cattle can live in pastures all the year round; but we have farmers who buy milk and butter. W hile the average yield of corn is not more than fifteen bushels to the acre, sixty or seventy bushels to the acre is common and 100 bushels is not unusual. Still up to the last few years we have been buying more corn from the west than we have been raising at home. This year's wheat crop was harvested more than a month ago, and I know of many instances where farmers got back from 20 to 30 bushels for each bushel sown. It would be easy for my county, for instance. to ship more dollars' worth of wheat than it does of cotton; but 90 per cent of the flour we use is brought in from the west. We raise a great many oats. I have known farmers to net $30 and $40 an acre on their oat crops; but we buy more oats from abroad than we raise at home. "So it is through the 1st. Ever since the civil war our agricultural people have been giving nearly their whole attention to cotton, buying from abroad all the supplies necessary to raise their crops. But there are some gratifying changes going on now. At least half a dozen cotton crops have been sold at less than the cost of production, and during the past ten or fifteen years there has been more widespread appreciation of the ruinous results of the old policy. More farmers are branching out on the line of cotton as a surplus, and giving more attention to rotation and the raising of home supplies. The well-to-do farmers of my county today are those who have always raised their own supplies and then produced as much cotton as possible in addition. Xo one has ever been known to fail in the pursuance of this policy; but most of the all-cotton farmers have fallen by the wayside. We can raise anything that you can raise and more of it, with less labor. We can raise lots of things that you cannot raise at all. "You are ahead of us, however, in thrift and energy, and I believe that if Vermont methods were applied to South Carolina soil and climate, the returns would be something like those commonly credited to Cripple Creek and the Klondike. "I have not seen enough of your agricultural methods to get a very intelligent idea of them," Mr. Grist went on, "but from what I am able to see of the results,'you are far ahead J of us in a great many respects. We have a great many neatly painted, | comfortable farmhouses, but not so many as you. Here the rule seems to be comfortable and prosperous appearances everywhere. In my country there is a large proportion of rundown farms: but there is absolutely no question of the fact that improvements are being made at a remarkable rate of progress, and in fifteen or twenty years more we will be able to show you renditions that will open your eyes Mr. Grin having come to a pause that indicated that he had almost covered the subject, the reporter ventured a question along the line of politics. "What dd your people think of the tariff, Mr. Grist?" "Now, my dear sir," remarked the southerner, with a good-natured twinkle in his eye, "I expect we had better call it quits. Politics is hardly a fit subject for discussion between a South Carolina Democrat and a Vermont Yankee. We are too far apart, at best, on the face of the propqsitlon; but in reality we are much closer together than is generally supposed. Mr. Kellette was telling me of the Massachusetts statesman who would be glad to speak to the Vermont Democrats If they would only congregate in his back yard. If you will let me know when that rally takes place I'll send .. - <- Dannhll. up clii ine Auuiu v aiuiuid ivc^uuu cans with full assurance that there will not only be plenty of room, but that there will be an abundance of harmonious congeniality during the speaking. There may be some differences between us on the tariff question, but the difference is greater in percentage that it is in principle. Tens of thousands of Democrats voted for Bryan while praying for the election of Taft, and some of these days when we get the southern Republicans properly herded with the northern Democrats, the southern Democrat (will be in still closer touch with the northern Republicans. "Well, here is where I'll have to tell you goodby," Mr. Grist abruptly broke off, as the conductor shouted "all aboard," and with a cordial handshake he boarded his train for the south. Imperishable Wood.?A curious source of wealth, says the London Globe, is reported by the French consul at Montgtze, in Upper Tonkin. It lies in wood mines. The wood originally was a pine forest, which the ?arth swallowed in some cataclysm. Some of the trees are a yard in diameter. They lie in a slanting direction and in sandy soils, which cover them to a depth of about 8 yards. As the top branches are wen preserved, 11 m thought the geological convulsions which burled them can not be of very ?reei antiquity. The wood furnished uy these timber mines is imperishable, and the Chinese gladly buy it for coffins. Get a Free Copy of WIRELESS for JULY.

It surely must be a fact that there are scores of men and women In this section who are not insured in the Mutual Benefit and should be, if they discharge their solemn obligations to their families, their estates or to provide for their own old age, (in case they are among the comparatively few who live to be old) who do not fully understand that in carrying Mutual Benefit insurance policyholders do not spend the money used in keeping themselves protected as long as they need protection, but simply deposit it with an institution that is safer and stronger than any bank in the world, and which guarantees to return the amount specified in the cash value of the contract whenever called for. The man who buys fire insurance or assessment life insur ? _ J i. JI? ance, ana nas no nre or uues not uio while the insurance is in force, has spent his money for protection. Don't you think it would be wise for you to make a deposit with the Mutual Benefit? If you die during the time you are making deposits, or afterwards, if you so elect, the amount named in policy will be promptly paid as agreed In policy and If you ever reach the point where you need cash more than protection you will receive it on request. I am in position to furnish letters from policyholders living in all sections of the U. S., in which they assert that they have been members of the Mutual Benefit family all the way from 20 to 50 years and been protected in sums ranging from one to twenty-five thousand dollars and could surrender their policies today for more cash than they have ever deposited, to say nothing of the gilt edge protection they have enjoyed for years.
