Censoring a Telephone.
For the first time a war censorship
has had to take active cognizance of
the telephone as a news transmitter.
Besides cutting the only cable from
Tripoli, the Italian government has
issued orders that no conversation
about the war shall be held by telephone,
which is the ordinary means of
communication for newspapers between
Paris and Milan.
Italian papers arc very strongly represented
in Paris, most of them keeping
throe or four correspondents there
^ who telephone their news every night,
and as experiments have proved that
more words can be spoken in a given
time in Italian than in any other language.
a 20-minute talk each night
fills several columns. When the war
began the order was given that if any
telephoning mentioned the war the

ly turn on a buzzer, which prevented
coaversation until she had disconnected
the speakers. Her orders were
simple: no one was to speak in any
language but Italian or French, and
there was to be no war talk, however
When every one was anxious to
know if the Italian troops had landed
at Tripoli without any opposition, one
correspondent in Paris hoped to evade
the censorship by stratagem, so he
called up his Milan representative:
"That you Smith?"
"Mrs. Smith well?"
"Did she arrive all right?"
"She and the children had no bother
At this point the buzzer began. The
watchful censor was suspicious and
would take no chances.?London Letter.
Gerty's Gum.?Here's a story that
comes by word of mouth from a traveling
man, whose veracity is only exceeded
by his versatility, says the Indianapolis
"One day last summer," he said, "I
was supporting a cigar Indian at a
downtown corner in St. Louis. On that
particular street the summer cars are
sometimes of the coffee grinder, single
truck model, type of 1812. There
were a number of shirt and shoe factories
near the corner. It was about
the closing hour, and I noticed two
girls step up to the corner and scan
the car tracks.
" 'She ought to be along pretty soon,
Gerty.' said one.
" 'Uh, huh," said Gerty.
"Just then an open car came bumping
along. One girl stepped out and
read the number.
'"No, that's not her."
"The same performance was followed
with three or four cars, until one
came into view that brought a smile
from Gerty and her friend.
" 'No. 3427,' said Gerty. 'She's the
"The girls flagged the car.
" 'Fourth seat back, on the end,'
"On they got," said the salesman,
watching the effect this tale was having.
"On they got. and Gerty, reaching
under the seat, dislodged something.
It was a wad of chewing gum.
And I was near enough to see it, too."
Pertinent Advice.?He was only a
young commercial traveler and had
not been on the road many months.
When, therefore, it chanced that he
found himself short of funds he scarcely
knew what course to take.
After much hard thinking he resolved
to let the office know his sad
plight. From the nearest postofflce he
despatched a wire:
"Have run short of ready money.
Please wire me here."
But the following morning brought
no reply to his appeal. Patiently he
waited for the second post, but nothing
Again he resolved to wire, this time
"No money. How shall I act?
Almost before he had reached his
hotel again the telegraph boy had
brought a reply. Hastily the young
commercial tore open the envelope
"Act as if you were broke."?Pittsburg
Only One Fault.?"Let me engage
the next cook." said the meddlesome
man to his wife. "Show the applicants
in to me and I will see that you
are properly suited."
"Do you attend church?" he inquired
of the first applicant.
"Yes, sir, regularly every Sunday,"
replied the cook.
"How long were you at your last
"I would pay you six dollars a week.
Would that do?"
"Have you any followers?"
"Right. I'll engage you."
The next evening the meddlesome
man asked his wife how the new cook
got on. "She's gone, Frank," replied
his wife. "You omitted one question
when you engaged her."
"Nonsense. What was that?"
"You forgot to ask her if she could
cook. She couldn't."?Exchange.
On the Conductor.?Dr. Nicholas
Murray Butler was talking in the saloon
of the Kaiser Wilhelm II. about
American honesty, according to the
New York Times.
"For all our muck-raking writers,"
he said, "I think that the American
people are the most honest people in
the world. Is an American e\*er subjected
at home to th6 petty cheats and
extortions to which he is subjected in j
Then, apropos of foreign honesty
Dr. Butler told a railroad story.
"On a foreign railroad," he said, "a
commuter had a row with the conductor.
At the end of the row the
commuter turned to a friend and said: i
" 'Well, the P. D. R. will never see
another cent of my money after this.'
"The conductor, who was departing,
looked back and snarled:
" 'What'll you do?v Walk'."
" 'Oh, no,' said the commuter. I'll

had the honor yesterday of entertaining
a man that is doing as much
or more than any other man to raise
the price of cotton. The man in question
is the Hon. E. W. Dabbs of Sumter,
the valuable president of the State
Farmers' Union. At noon yesterday in
the court house. Colonel Dabbs, al- .
though not a preacher, preached a (
good, sound sermon to the farmers who
had congregated to hear his address, j
He is a very powerful speaker, driv- ,
ing his words right to the point, and
his advice here did not fall on deaf
ears. Colonel Dabbs said that he used
to think that the cotton mills were the (
friends of the farmer, but here of late |
he had changed his mind. He was of
the opinion that the cotton mill men ,
want to keep the price of cotton down |
as much as possible. He further
stated that he thought the farmer ,
would be better off if all the cotton ,
mills were removed to England. He 1
urged the farmers to hold their cot- (
ton; not to sell at the low price. He
insisted on their planting plenty of ,
corn and other grain next year, to diversify
their crops and to use less fertilizer.
Colonel Dabbs declared that
too much land is planted In cotton
each year, and that the farmers should
by all means reduce the acreage. He
referred several times to the friendliness
that exists between the farmer
and the business and professional
man in town and it was his opinion
that they had much to do with the

death was due to the fact that
he was drunk. When the shooting occurred
the urifortunate man was attempting
to prevent the officer from
arresting a man nami'U wnmaKer,
who was wanted for being drunk and
disorderly. As nearly as can be learned
the facts are these: Whittaker
appeared on the streets early in the
day Sunday in an intoxicated condition.
Policeman Hager sent him to
his boarding house, a Mrs. Dickson's.
Later In the day, the boarding house
keeper sent word to the police asking
that they come and arrest Whittaker
as he was making things disagreeable.
Responding to the request Mr. Hager
had gone to arrest Whittaker, when
he was interrupted by Lockman, who
was very much Intoxicated. Lockman.
who seems to have been a friend of
Whlttaker's, did not want the latter
arrested. So he pulled out his knife
and made at Hager. He cut the officer's
clothes in several places before
the officer drew his pistol. Hager
warned him not to advance on him
again. As Hager drew his pistol from
his pocket Lockman knocked it out of
his hand. The officer stooped to pick
it "up and as he did so Lockman cut
him on the shoulder. It was then the
officer fired only one shot, which
struck his assailant in the abdomen.

Differences In This Somnolent
Not only does the hibernating sleep
of animals differ greatly from the ordinary
sleep of repose, but there are
many variations of the degree of torpor
Into which J hey sink. Some seem 10
slumber normally, while in the ease
of others there is a suspended animation
which it is almost Impossible to
distinguish from death.
In the popular mind winter is the
only season in which animals hibernate,
but this is an error. In dry countries
many kinds of animals arc able to
survive the long season of droughts
only by hibernation, or, more properly
speaking, by estivation, the latter being
the term applied to this condition
when it occurs In summer.
Even in cold countries many animals
begin their winter sleep before winter
comes, which shows that the condition
is not Induced by cold, nor by lack of
food, for the great bat begins to sleep
sometimes as early as the end of July,
when its insect food is still very plentiful.

In hibernation the waste is very small.
The fat accumulated during the plenty
of summer and autumn supplies all expenditure
until the coming of spring,
when, earlier or later, the hibernating
animal, having no capital in reserve,
begins to suffer the pangs of hunger.
