A Fortunate Parent.?In rural Kentucky hopeless idiots are not sent to an institution for them. They are formally awarded into the custody of someone, usually a parent or a guardian, and for the keep of such an unfortunate the state pays one hundred dollars a year. This amount, in certain sections, is regarded as a handsome addition to the family income. Last summer Judge J. Campbell Flournoy, of Kentucky and New York, was up in the mountains of his native state taking title to coal lands for an eastern syndicate. In a canoe, with a native to guide him, he was proceeding along a creek that penetrated into one of the wildest and most desolate recesses of the Cumberlands. They came to a homestead that was infinitely better looking than any they had seen for days. The house was of clapboards instead of the customary logs, and it was painted. The fences were stout and newly whitewashed. The stock in the barn lot had a well nourished look. "Who lives there?" inquired the judge. The guide told him. "Judging by the looks of his place," said Flournoy, "he must be a forehanded man." "He certainly Is," said the native. "He's got 'leven children and all of 'em ijiots."?Saturday Evening Post. "Don't Get Injured."?"I've been thinking of it ever since I started on my present journey," said the commercial traveler thoughtfully, "and I'm bothered if I can make up my mind Just what she was aiming at. You see, some time ago I realized that traveling about the country as I am, I was taking a good many chances. I decided, therefore, to insure myself. "So I said to my wife after I had acted upon the thought: " 'I have done something today that I should have done when I first started on the road. I have taken out an accident insurance policy on my life. If I am killed the company pays $5,000. If I am injured, then I get $5 a week.' " 'For how long?' she asked. " 'As long as I am laid up.' " 'But it might be only a week?' " 'Yes.' "'And you would only get $5?' "That it all.' " 'And if you get killed you get $5,000?' " 'You would,' I answered patiently. "Well, the next morning, when I started on my journey, she threw her arms round me and cried: " 'Now, John, for heaven's sake, whatever you do, don't get injured!"'? PaltlmAro Amorloon A Misunderstanding.? "They who condemn the new science of scientific management and efficiency engineemg don't understand them, that's all." Thus spoke Jerome S. Me" 1e, the well-known millionaire, in an address before the Duluth Y. M. C. A. With a smile he continued: "They fail as egregiously to understand these splendid new sciences as the farmer failed to understand, the incubator salesman. "The salesman, praised his incubator with fervid eloquence. He declared that there was nothing like it on the market. But to all his arguments the farmer, an old-fashioned fellow, shook his head. " 'But think, sir,' cried the salesman warmly?'think of the time an incubator saves.' "Shifting his quid from the right cheek to the left, the old farmer sneered. " 'Aw,' he said, 'what do I care for a hen's time?'" Explained the Sacrifice.?"President Taft discussed gloomily the other day," said a Washingtonlan, "the terrible horrors of the cholera. He said that war was an ugly, vile thing, and that he would always regret the defeat of his arbitration plans. "He said that, when he heard any talk about heroism or self-sacrifice in war he always thought about old Col. Gore. " 'Col. Gore,' a young lady once cried, 'they tell me that in one of your battles an enemy died to save your life. Is that true?' " 'Quite true, ma'am,' said the colonel, stroking his great military mustache. "'Oh, how beautiful! How noble! Tell me how it happened, won't you?" said the young lady. " 'Well, ma'am,' said the colonel, 'it happened like this. The enemy had his gun pressed against my temple, and I ran my bayonet through his stomach.' " Where the Money Went.?"A man died," says the teacher, "leaving to his eldest son one-fourth of his property, plus one-tenth that of the share received by the next son, who was to receive one-fourth of the property, plus one twentieth of the share received by the third son, who was to receive as much as the other two received less one-fifth of their combined inheritances. How much did each get?" ' Nothing,'" promptly answers the thoughtful boy in the second row. "The lawyers got it for breaking the will."? Judge's Library. The Crooked Way.?District Attorney Whitman of New York, according to the Washington Star, was talking about the sad case of a western banker who had stolen a great sum from the depositors. "The man," said Mr. Whitman, "lived beyond his means?motor cars, a house with eleven baths, son at college, daughter coming out wife hungry for diamonds. The inevitable result followed." Mr. Whitman smiled and ended: "The unfortunate fellow got straitened, so he became crooked." Had the Right Kind.?A you-? preacher went fishing for trout, j companied by a couple of girls from his parish. A farmer who was also out fishing called to the young clergyman: "Ketchin' many trout?" "I am a fisher of men," said the young preacher with dignity. "Well," the farmer smiled, and then looking at the girls said: "I see you've got the right kind of bait with you."? Ladies' Home Journal.

Rnaaell. bef Every school trustee in the county ln should have an intelligent idea of the cui jacketing of stoves, how it is done and fer why it is done. As I visit schools 1 find the majority of them heated with ln stoves, ordinary ones which get very nai hot for a few moments when the fire is thr made, and those pupils sitting near it ani are too warm while those in the back of the room are uncomfortably cool. se In a short time the fire goes down and ing the room is cold. I Stoves should be jacketed?that is, , they should be surrounded by a sheet or J plate of some kind, set a few inches an< from the stove, then the air between est the stove and the jacket will be heated, qF( ir will rise and circulate through tne room. If this is done, the room is more w< evenly heated and the pupi.s sitting a I nearest the stove will not suffer from hei having their faces and hands scorching jt when there is a good Are in the stove. This jacket may be a wooden frame Pr< covered with sheets of asbestos; it may epi ho tin nr irulvnni7.pH irnn It mnv ho j.i "v " ? ? uei put around any stove no matter what . its size and shape, and may be done by 8 a tinner, a carpenter, a blacksmith, or W1 any one who is apt at handling tools. agi It is very greatly improved when a hole tw, is cut in the floor under the stove, so that the fresh air is drawn in, passes Fe between the stove and the jacket is a i heated, and by the laws of circulation _ of air passes out through the school * room. This opening in the floor should ffl be controlled by a side or register. Such 3 a device is a ventilating stove as well * as a heating stove, bringing in fresh 1 air, heating it, and distributing it over 5 the room. To be complete there should f be a foul air outlet at the floor level. ^ This may be a small fireplace, or a * large pipe going into the chimney and 2 up the chimney. ? There are a number of firms manu- ^ facturing such stoves as I have de- ^ scribed. These cost about $85. The J features of all these stoves are: (1) a 2 jacket: (2) a connection between the 3 pure out-door air and the inside of the 4 jacket; and (3) a vent that will draw off the foul air. Leila A.

WESLEY AND HIS WORK English Sketch of the Founder of the Methodist Church. Few lives are better known in outline than that of John Wesley, from the outset of his career at Oxford, when the name of "Methodist" was applied to him and to that little group of undergraduates who, as Southey says, "professed to make religion the great business of their lives," says a writer in the London Telegraph. The word, meaning those who brought system I into their studies, had been, however, ? j ??in v?io t'lnpmyt'U |)lcv.uuai; u; v iu.mn.i hi ma _ biographies of the ministers who suffered ejectment in 1662. A fellowship at Lincoln college preceded his ordina- I tion and he accepted soon after the invitation to go to the colony of Georgia to preach to the settlers and to the * Indian natives. That the squabbles and factions and petty jealousies he encountered there, rendered this expedition something of a failure is well known, but what is perhaps forgotten today is that on the voyage out and ! afterwards he came under the very direct influence of the Moravian church. "What can I preach?" he asked one of their leaders. "Preach faith till you have it and then because you have it you will preach faith." was the answer, and that surely colored much of his j later zeal. Wesley's friendship with "Whitfield began on his return to England, and it was the latter who, at Bristol, first went out into the fields and highways ] to reach the people. Here he was join by Wesley, who threw his whole irt and soul Into the work. Then fan some of the" most astonishing: nifestatlons of religious revivalism the annals of those occasionally rerrlng demonstrations that pass from vor to. frenzy. It Is not necessary these days to attempt to offer expiations of the emotional phenomena it were then so marked a feature long his hearers. Such have been ;n, though not perhaps in so startla degree, in later revivals. 3ut one of the results was that Weshad to obtain a "preaching house," 3 on May 12, 1739, the first one was ablished near the House Fair ound, Bristol. Later in the year ;sley came to London, and addressed nicp nnon-alr ronerreeation at Black ith, attended by many who drove to in their coaches. His manner of ?aching was exciting wide criticism, scopal and otherwise and he had Initely broken away from his-Morain friends. He parted, too, from tiitfleld, but meanwhile those in reement with him had established ;mselves in a meeting house in tterlane, and Methodism had become lew force to be reckoned with. iXri 4 l W I 'JT r *41 I !
