The Other Barret.?"Speaking of the wild west," smilingly remarked Thos. B. Dunn In the lobby of a Washington hotel, according to the Philadelphia Telegraph, "reminds me of a story of a hostelry In the oage bush ? ?Ountry. - "Sometime ago," continued the congressman, "a traveler who stopped overnight at the aforesaid hostelry noticed thst instead of ringing a bell or sounding a gong at meal time the proprietor went to the front door and fired a double-barrel shotgun. Later in the evening the traveler commented on the strange procedure. " That Is a novel Idea of yours,' UC BlUlUU^iJ ?? - , prietor, 'calling your guests by firing a gun.' " 'Yaas,* drawled the proprietor, 'but it generally fetches 'em around In time for sayin' grace.' " 'Yes,' admitted the traveler. "But pardon the question, why do you discharge only one barrel?' " 'Wouldn't do to shoot 'em both,' answered the proprietor, 'I have to keep t' other barrel to collect pay for the meals an' lodging.' " ^ i " B Proved His Claim,?While a building was In process of construction two of the tilers became engaged in a violent quarrel. So violent was It that the police were called in and the offenders taken before a magistrate. Both of the men were sober and Industrious and good workmen; this, according to the testimony of the foreman in cnarge of their work, who had followed in hopes of being able to intercede for them. The magistrate asked, in astonishment,. the cause of the quarrel. It seems that one man had accused the other of stealing his coat "And I can prove It, too," added the man. "How?" asked the magistrate. , "I always keep my card in the pocket," said the man. The policemen were directed to search the garment. But they found absolutely nothing. "Gimme my coat," said the workman. It was handed to him. He took two dried peas out of the pockets a.uu held them up triumphantly. "P. P. Peter Powel. That's me name.

"I am willing to let our house be run by strangers, and that you should ever remain in entire ignorance of its management" "Rather good. Anything else?"

Thought He Was a Publican.?A story of the Duke of Argyll is being told in connection with a recent trade exhibition at Olympia, London. The duke paused at a stall to examine some patent chimney pots. "I'm troubled very much with smoke at my house in Scotland," he said to the attendant. "You may send me some of these chimney pots." "Certainly, sir," said tne attendant, who did not recognize his customer. "May I ask your name and address?" "Send them to the Duke of Argyll, at Roseneath," replied the duke. "Yea, sir. But what name?" asked the attendant. But the duke moved off and somebody kindly explained to the attendant who his customer was. "Bless me!" remarked the attendant,, "I thought he was a publican, and I took 'the Duke of Argyll' to be the name of his pub.'"?Answers.

In the past he has carefully watched his father as he would partially smoke a cigar and then place the remainder in the ash try, hours later to pick up the cigar and finish it. Sometimes the father would have two or three "butts" awaiting his pleasure. His son took deep Interest in the matter. Not long ago the smoker picked a partially smoked cigar from his ash tray and lighted It. The boy watched with more Interest than usual, and remarked a few minutes later: "Papa, is that a good one?" "Yes, that's a fine one," remarked the satisfied father. To this the son replied: "I thought you would like that one. I picked it up in front of the Methodist church."?Sodus Record. One on the Warden.?An elderly churchwarden in shaving himself on Sunday before church time, made a slight cut with the razor on the extreme end of his nose. Quickly calling his wife, he asked her if she had any court plaster in the house. "You will find some in my sewing basket," she said. The warden soon had the cut covered. At the church in assisting with the collection he noticed every one smile as he passed the plate, and some of the younger people laughed outright. Very much annoyed, he asked a friend if there was anything wrong with his appearance. "Well, I should think there is," was the answer; "what is that on your nose?" "Court plaster." "No," said the friend. "It is the label of a reel of cotton. It says, 'Warranted 200 yards long.' "?New York Globe.

BETHEL IMPROVEMENT Large Turnout at the Chapel Last Saturday MEMBERSHIP PASSES HUNDRED MARK Dr. Dulin Reads Interesting and In* structive Paper on How to Keep the School Room up to the Highest Standard of Healthfulness and Comfort. Correspondence The Yor'srllle Enquirer Clover, R. F. D. October 13.?Fully one hundred of the one hundred and ? - * * <M.MhA.a nnnt nnnuHfllt. [ iweiliy -trig lie mem wc?o iivn vw.iBv.fcvw. ing the total enrollment of the Bethel Improvement association were present at the meeting held at Bethel Chapel last Saturday night, and as usual the proceedings were not only interesting, but pleasant and profitable. Dr. T. N. Dulin the president, was in the chair, and the leading feature of the programme was the reading by him of a highly instructive paper on the subject of preserving the health of the children in the school room. He emphasized the importance of a judicious regard for proper cleanliness, proper lighting, proper heating, proper ventilation, and gave full instructions as to the best disinfectants and how to use them. The paper was discussed in a very practical and comprehensive manner by several of the members, including MISS IXKUt: cent; Oiiuiu, vr. u. ougts, W. P. Boyd and A. C. Harper, the two first named speaking at some length and the two last named more briefly. Before adjournment. Free Silver school house was selected as the place of the next meeting, and the last Saturday in October at 4 o'clock p. m., as the time. Following is the full text of Dr. Dulln's paper: "As some of our schools are already open and others will be open In the near future, It occurs to me as especially fitting that our attention be directed to some of the things in connection with them that suggest room for improvement, and I am sure that we cannot fall to profit by due consideration of the subject. Cleanliness. "It is needless for me to say that our school rooms should be kept clean; but when I say kept clean I do not mean simply sweeping and dusting, although this is about all that is done in the majority of cases. "When we sweep our floors we usually raise a cloud of dust and this dust is usually laden with disease producing germs. One of the ways to keep down the dust is to sprinkle before sweeping, but this causes -the dirt to stick to the floor and to that extent operates against the object sought. Nevertheless, however, it is better to sprinkle before sweeping than to sweep without sprinkling. "The floors of all school rooms should be mopped at least once a week with some antiseptic solution such as say Kreso, of from one to fifty to one to one hundred. I mean by this one pint of Kreso to fifty to one hundred pints of water. There are other antiseptics just as good if not better than Kreso, and I only mention Kreso because it is cheap, and can be purchased at almost any drug store. Tarco and many other coal tar products are as cheap and just as good as Kreso as a disinfectant. "Further, our school rooms should be disinfected once a month with a solution of formaldehide. One pint of a forty per cent solution is sufficient for a room 12 feet wide by 15 feet long and from 9 to 12 feet high. The way to use this disinfectant is to close all the doors and windows and sprinkle or throw the desired amount of formaldhide over the room. Keep the room closed for twenty-four hours and then open U in order to admit fresh air. The formaldehide may be introduced on Friday afternoon after the dismissal of the school. Then let the doors, windows and other openings be closed until Saturday afternoon. Open the room up on Saturday und let it remain open until Monday morning when it will be ready for use again without danger or discomfort to the occupants. Formaldehide will not Injure anything or stain the most delicate fabric. If it is properly used by the method described our children will not be liable to contract diseases from that class of germs which remain in houses from year to year, and we will save doctor's bills, as well as a great deal of anxiety. Ventilation. "Of course, every school room should have plenty of fresh air and as a mat ter of fact most of them do not have It. Because of the way a great majority of our buildings are constructed we cannot get sufficient ventilation. We frequently have twenty to thirty pupils in a room not over sixteen feet wide by twenty-four feet long by nine high, but I am glad to say that this overcrowding is not as common as it was a few years ago. Instead of our school houses being constructed after any old plan, without regard to ventilation, light and heating, they should be planned by our very best architects. But as the houses in which our schools are to be taught at least for this year are already constructed, we need give this subject very little consideration at this time. We must do the best we can with what we have. We should at all times have a current of fresh air circulating through every school room. Windows may be raised three to four inches at the bottom and lowered six to eight inches at the top. Of course no one should sit directly in this current of air, especially if it is very cold or damp. All sashes should be up at night in order that the air may circulate freely. You need not be afraid of the so-called 'deadly night air,' for more people are in their graves for lack of night air than have ever been injured by it We must have fresh air to brighten our minds, renew our strength and make us more fit for all the duties of life. "Almost every one has experienced a feeling somewhat like this: After sleeping all night in a close room they find when they wake in the morning that they have a dull heavy feeling about the head, breathing slightly oppressed and in every way feeling badly. This is caused from lack of oxygen or sleeping in a room without the proper ventilation. This same person finds that this feeling is relieved in a very few minutes after getting out into the air. Light. It is of very great importance that our school houses be so arranged that the pupils get the best light obtainable. But as our houses are already constructed we will have to make the best use of the light we have. Pupils should not sit up facing the light but should either be to the side or back and preferably from the back, and there ought to be sufficient light to enable one to see in any part of the room without straining the eyes. This is Important, as many children have defective vision anyway, and deficient light will Intensify this defect. All children should have their eyes examined by a competent eye specialist Heating. "All school rooms should be properly heated as no one can study when shivering from cold or sweltering from heat. The temperature of the school room should be kept at about 70 degrees Fahrenheit and of course we must have a reliable thermometer In order to regulate the temperature. Fires must be started and kept up one to two hours before school time In extremely cold weather If we expect to raise the temperature to 70 degrees Fahrenheit by the time school opens In the morning. There must be an open vessel on the stove filled with water so that the air may be moist. Individual Desks. Our school houses should have individual desks. First because there is less danger of contracting disease when each pupil has his or her own desk and is allowed to use no other. Second, because each child ought to keep a neat desk and be held accountable for any damage to same, and mira, 11 is very niuuu caoici iui iww ers to control pupils when the Individual desk Is used. Water Supply and the Common Drinking Cup. Every one will admit that we do not look carefully enough after the water supply for our schools. We should have tubular wells; but If we do not we must get water from a well or spring that Is In good condition, and not from Just any spring or well. Of course, if the water is full of germs when taken from spring or well, it Is bad enough, but it can be made a great deal worse by an open vessel and the common drinking cup. Suppose one of the pupils of a school is suffering from diphtheria, tonsilitis, mumps, measles, Influenza or any of the contagious diseases and uses the common drlnkin: cup. In such a case it is easy to see that all are liable to have the diseas and It is not only the diseases above mentioned but also tuberculosis, syphilis and other more serious diseases that are contracted in this way. It will cost you a great deal more for medical attention besides the loss of time, care - ? -u*.. t* ?.in UI1U cLIlAlClj t LUrtll It Will IU JJlUVJUl covered vessels with spigots and see to It that each pupil has his or her own drinking cup and teach them how important it is to use it. I believe a great majority of the contagious diseases are spread oftimes in this way. I mean contracted from drinking after gome one who has a contagious disease. 1 do not mean to say that we will eliminate disease entirely in this way, but we will greatly curtail the spread. "Friends, let us try to carry out these suggestions, for we all need to improve along these lines in our homes as well as in our public places." GAMBLER CHEATS HIMSELF Produces Nothing and Does no Good to Anybody. All forms of laxity in the religious, social and spiritual spheres of our being, questionable modes of dress, dance in vogue?all are coming in for their share of discussion and consideration. Recently Elbert Hubbard had to say about gambling the following: The amateur gambler is not necessarily a bad man?primarily his intefils are honest. He plays first simply for recreation; then, to add interest, the game transforms itself into penny-ante. From this, to betting all the money he has, is a very easy evolution when the fever is on. He wins. But to quit when you have won and not give your opponents a chance to win their money back, is more or less a disgrace. He plays again?and loses. Then he wants to get his money back. Of the morality of gambling, nothing needs to be said?all I affirm is that it is simply absurd to enter on a habit where success Is defeat and to win is a calamity. The successful amateur gambler graduates into a professional?he has to, for business men shun him. No man who plays cards for money can keep his position long. The fact is, none of us has a surplus of brains, and if you are going to succeed in business, all the power you have to your credit is demanded. The man who can play cards at night and do business in the daytime hasn't yet been born. Life is a bank account, with so much divine energy at your disposal. What are you going to do with it? If you draw your checks for this, you cannot for that?take your choice. And, above all, do not draw on the Bank of Futur lty by breaming baa air, keeping bad hours and bad company. The man who succeeds in business is the one who is in bed at ten o'clock at night; and only one thing he is jealous of, and that is outdoor exercise. Gambling robs a man of rest; and the keen edge of his life is lost in the shuffling of the paste-boards. All he gives to his employer or the world Is the discard. Outside of the play he is a weak, inefficient person, and his weakness is very apt to manifest Itself in burdening his friends. The curse of gambling does not fall on the gambler alone, any more than the drunkard is the only sufferer from his fault. Suffering falls upon everyone within the radius of the gambler. If your gambler is on a salary, he very often comes around for his wages before pay day; then he gets to discounting his salary to a money shark: then. if he can, he will borrow his pay before he earns it, without first consulting you. He intends to pay it back? oh, yes! He wins and pays it back. This encourages him to borrow more the next time. He takes more In order to win more. He is now obliged to play heavily because his debts are accumulating. It is an old story, and dozens of men in Sing Sing can tell you all about it. One bad feature of the poker game is the poker face?the impassive white face with its cold smile. It reveals nothing?nothing but untruth. In time the habit of the gambler becomes fixed ?he is a living lie. In strict scientific economies the gambler is a parasite and a thief. He consumes but does not produce. Gambling means blurred vision, weak muscles, shaky nerves. Loss of sleep, lack of physical exercise, bad air, excitement, form a devil's monopoly of bad things. TIE VOLTURNO DISASTER (Continued from Page One). I had received word from the Carmanla that she was hoping to be with us by 11 A. M. Life-belts were served out and put on each passenger. Food was served out to them. Fire Discovered in Bunker. "At 9 a. m., the bunker was found to be ablaze. It being impossible to stop ho flro In thft hnnlrpr nn Apnnnnf of gases, the watertight doors were closed and water poured down .the No. 2 hatch onto the fire, but the fire was gaining all the time. "At 11 a. m., the Carman la arrived and lowered a boat, but could not reach the ship on account of the high sea. Asked Carmania to look for No. 2 boat. The steamship Seydlitz arrived and lowered boats, which could not reach us. About 3 p. m., the Carmania returned and tried to reach the ship with life-rafts, but all drifted past our bow too far away. "Several steamers had arrived by dusk. The Kroonland put away boats which made four attempts to come alongside, but were swept away each time. "At 9.30 p. m., the saloon and chart house were flaming. The deck, bridge and all before the funnel were blazing fiercely. Pumps and dynamos stopped for want of steam. Men Worked with the accumulators until 11 p. m., when the magazine on the bridge blew up carrying the aerial away. Jumped Toward Rescuing Boats. "Several boats by this time were laying off the ship and Induced passengers to Jump and they were rescued by boats. At 12 midnight, the weather was overcast and squally. Operations were suspended, It being too dark for boats to see. The Are meanwhile worked .through the women's steerage to the after end of the ship, but we kept knowledge of this from the passengers who were quiet throughout the rest of the night. "The chief engineer, the Marconi men and seamen and myself spent the night making small rafts in case the fire burned through the deck before daylight. "At 5.35 a. m., the first boat arrived. Weather and sea having moderated, boats were enabled to come alongside the ship, which enabled passengers to smhorlf nnlrklv. All the steamers lv ing around the ship sent boats. The passengers left in a very orderly way and there was no panic, women breaking down and crying when help was alongside, and all were off the ship by 8 a. m., about 400 passengers. I searched the ship myself and found no one else on board, so decided to abandon her, as the No. 3 hatch was well alight by now; so with remainder "of crew embarked on the Kroonland. , Ships that Gava Aid. "Nothing at all has been heard of the two missing boats. Passing vessels were asked to keep a lookout for them. "I wish to express my heartiest thanks and gratitude to the captains of ships who stood by; also to the officers and crews who came to our assistance, for their bravery and endurance in their endeavor to come alongside the ship; also to the passengers of the Kroonland for their kindness to the rescued passengers, engineers and crew and myself, In fitting us oat and doing everything for us. "Following are the names of the steamers that came to our assistance; Carman I a. Grosser Kurfuerst, La Touraine, Asian, Narragansett, Seydlitz Minneapolis, Devonian, Czar, Rappahannock, also one steamer without wireless. The ship was abandoned in latitude 48.30 north, longitude 34.57 west." JAPAN LEADS IN WHALING American Ships Have Been Supplanted by Those Flying "The Sun." In the marble room of the senate a Japanese visitor was waiting to see a senator. The little man seemed placid as his eyes wandered up and down the pages of a Japanese magazine, printed on a fine tissue paper, much like the light and filmy old-time paper napkin. He explained that he was reading an Interesting account of whale fishing as now carried on in the Pacific, which showed that the monopoly heretofore held by our New England towns of New Bedford and New London has been taken over by the sturdy little Jap sailors, who have dreams of one day becoming masters of the Pacific. On the ruins of the American enterI prises that largely led to its Introduction into the family of nations, Japan has built up a great whale fishery. The American consul at Hakodate, Japan, recently made reports on this interesting subject, tracing the industry from the year 1820, when the American whaler Marco, commanded by Captain Joseph Allen, and an English ship, in charge of Captain Coffin, of Nantucket, visited Japanese waters, and in three short months "tinea up" ana sauea iur nume. These waters, of course, soon became a favorite whaling ground, and in 1850, out of 543 whalers sailing under the American flag, fully 100 cruised in or crossed the Japanese grounds ?in fact, the importance of this American fishery, the occasional loss of whalers on the Japanese coast and the inhumane treatment shown to shipwrecked crews, were among the principal reasons for the dispatch of the Perry expedition, which made the first treaty with Japan. The American whaling interest has gradually declined until in 1908 one solitary whaler . flew the Stars and Stripes on the coast of Japan. After Japan was opened to the world a few Japanese took up the business, at first with crude and inadequate apparatus and vessels. The Japanese government in 1894 and 1896 sent se| lected men to San Francisco and New Bedford, where they shipped as common sailors and landsmen on American whalers. Their investigations into the business were painfully exact and minute, as shown in a book edited by three of these agents, who shipped in a whaler cruising on the Atlantic grounds. This book chronicled not only the name, rig and tonnage of the vessel, ana tne names or ner owners, officers and crew, but every detail of her construction, the size of every timber, plank and bolt, the length of every rope, the size, dimensions and material of all her whaling gear, and trying apparatus, with the amount of food taken to sea, how the whole blubber, tongue, case, head oil, bone, was "cut In," stowed, rendered, packed, with the shares system of division and payment, the food outfit and equipment of .the crews, and even a list of the clothing taken to sea by the captain, the whole being Illustrated.?National Magazine.

Several decisions of immense importance to the entire future of England were made during Elizabeth's reign. For one thing, England became definitely a Protestant nation. For another with the crushing of Spain in the defeat of the great Armada she took command of the seas, which she was henceforth to rule as her own domain.

One of the Best The year 1913 has been one of the very best of the fourteen years that I have been representing the Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Company. The amount of business up to this time I exceeds that written during all of 1912 and that year waa above the average with me. A noteworthy feature of the 1913 business Is that about TWO THIRDS of It has been applications for more Insurance in the Mutual Benefit by old policy-holders who had been Insured in the Company from four to fourteen years, and who knew by experience that the Grand Old Company was all that was claimed for It, and then some. Could the Company receive higher endorsement? A number of prominent policy-holders who also have policies in other companies, have voluntarily stated to me on various occasions that they were sorry that all their insurance was not in the Mutual Benefit Brother, if you have no Life Insurance, you should have, and you can side-step further regrets by starting with the Mutual Benefit and if you have some in other companies, and are thinking of applying for more you owe it to yourself to Investigate the Mutual Benefit.
