Some Advice Jfot to Be Taken Too Se rlonsly. Gunning accidents have become so frequent that it might be well to form ulate a few rules for the guidance of those who go forth to slay. How would these do? First When you hand a loaded gun to your companion, always keep the muzzle pointing your way. This may Bave the fool killer a Job. Second. Never go hunting with a man who looks like a deer. Don't look like a deer yourself. Look like a mule or something else easy. A man In Pennsylvania was shot by a particular friend because the tuft of hair on his bead resembled a partridge. When you go hunting, have your bead shaved. Third. Don't use a gun that will carry three or four miles. You may drop an Innocent cow in the next coun ty. Better stick to grandad's shot gun with the warped barrel. The chil dren In a Wisconsin country school got a holiday on account of one of those long distance guns.- Bullet cross ed over two townships and bit the Echoolma'am in the limb. Fourth. If you bave any doubt that the deer you are going to shoot at may be your hunting companion, don't yell, "Is that you, Pete?" befofce" yon fire. It might alarm the deer It it is a deer. Fifth. If you really want to insure perfect safety against hunting acci dents, have your eyes, your nerve and your firearms thoroughly tested before you start out and then stay at borne.

TO BE A HIGHWAY OF HIST0ET. tt Is to Be Free to All and Will Be Seventeen Miles Lone and Tiro Hundred and Fifty Feet "Wide S,ne Eestlons For Structures Along the Ronte. ' The beginning of the twentieth cen tury -will witness the construction of a national boulevard which, when completed, will connect Washington and Mount Vernon. In 18S8 congress made an appropriation of 10,000 for the preliminary survey of the route. President Cleveland not only signed the bill, but before its enactment in terested himself In the measure. Sec retary Endlcott detailed Colonel Peter C. Hains of the war department to make the survey, and when the report was made Secretary Endlcott indorsed it and advocated the passage of other appropriations to begin the work. The legislature of Virginia granted a char ter to the Mount Vernon Avenue asso ciation and soon after transferred to the association a claim against the government for $120,000, with the un derstanding that when the money was collected It should be used in the con struction of the boulevard. The Mount Vernon Avenue associa tion recently met in Alexandria and elected a board of directors, who re solYed to resume this work as soon as the board elects officers, early in 1900. The Washington end of this highway will be the western entrance to the capltol building. The line will run through the Mall, south of the White House, and near the monument to the Potomac at the western terminus of New York avenue. It will cross the Potomac over the proposed memorial bridge which will unite the capital with Arlington, the home of Lee, and now the Arlington National cemetery. On the Virginia shore the boulevard will follow the course of the Potomac to Alexandria and from thence to Mount Vernon on the exact line over which Washington traveled from his home to Alexandria when he was an attendant of Christ church In that city, and in which his high back pew Is still pointed out' to tourists. When this boulevard Is completed In accordance with the proposed plans, it will belong to the nation. The distance of this highway, will be 17 miles, the, width 250 feet This distance will be sub divided Into as many sections as there are states and territories. Each of these sections will be named for a state or territory, and such state or territory to be honored will be asked to contrib ute to the beauty of the boulevard in whatever manner shall be decided upon by legislative enactment. Whatever trees or shrubs are plant ed along any reservation will be taken from the soil of the state the name of which Is applied to the reservation. If there shall be monuments or col umns or arches, as there will be prob ably in the1 course of time, they will be constructed from material taken from the mines or quarries of states and ter ritories honored by having sections named for them. It has been suggest ed that each state shall erect a statue 'of its most distinguished citizen. The traveler over this highway will thus find in a short' distance a mute history of the United States, giving him In a short'journey'a conception of the scope of the country which he could obtain in no other way without time and ex pense. It will be an avenue of the sto ry of the country. The proposed boulevard wjjl be free to all. Its general construction will re quire an army .of laborers, but its com pletion in accordance with what is out lined can only be accomplished when there sTiall be no more history to make. The'posslbilities of the beauty of such a highway can scarcely be computed. Since It has become known that the work Is to be pushed suggestions mul tiply daily. One Is that a monument shall follow the completion of the bou levard -proper, In the cornerstone of which shall be placed the name of ev ery man employed in the highway's construction. Some of the suggestions are fanciful, of course. That which proposes a pan theon "somewhere along the line in which shall be gathered the remains of each president Is one. This plan pro vides that each succeeding president shall find sepulture here when his life's work is done. The suggestion to have statues of the military and naval he roes grouped in a temple constructed upon a field to contain reproductions of all the appliances of warfare in the history of the country is being dis cussed. There have been suggestions from those favorable to the Idea of ex pansion that somewhere along the route there shall be something not yet defined which will convey to the mind of the citizen of other years the Dffort of this "government to civilize and elevate the peoples of the colonial possessions. An enthusiastic member of the Mount Vernon Avenue association said to a New York Sun reporter: "Before the close of 1000 the country will wltnessthe beginning of the na tional boulevard. Already we have re ceived letters from people In many states .offering to agitate the movement as soon as we shall indlmte what Is wanted. Capitalists haTe sent word they may be relied upon, and the mo ment we got fairly under headway the student, artist, sculptor and artisan of the United States will come In, for this highway wll be an academy of honor for the exhibit of their work the like of which no nation on earth can ever hope to surpass or even try to imitate." BOON TO FARMERS. Thrashing Engine Used to Transport Grain From Farm to Mnrkct. A. J. Wakefield of Sioux Falls, S. D., has found a new use for thrashing en gines which promises to revolutionize the present method of transporting grain from the farms of South Dakota to the nearest market points. As an experiment he tied live wag ons together and, after loading them with an aggregate of -100 bushels of wheat, coupled the thrasher engine with .which he had garnered the grain to .the string of wagons and started for Fanlkton. Thp trip of in miles wni I The Easy Food Easy to Buy, TWMir Easy to Cook, Easy to Eat, Easy to. Digest. uaker Oats Atallgrocciil in 2-lb. pkgs." made in six hours, says the Chicago In ter Ocean.. Wakefield had but one as sistant During the trlp'of the curi ous train along the country roads the farmers living along the route tem porarily abandoned their work in order to watch the strange sight. When the unusual procession entered Faulkton, it attracted the attention of hundreds of townspeople. Wakefield carefully noted the man ner in which the engine hauled Its load and Is satisfied that the capacity of the engine is sufficient to haul dou ble the number of loaded wagons transported on the "experimental trip. It is therefore his purpose to haul about 1,000 bushels of grain on the next and subsequent trips. Several good results are noticeable from the experiment Notwithstanding the consumption of coal, the employment of the thrasher engine makes, in Wakefield's opinion, a considerable saving both in time and money over the usual method of haul ing grain to market with horses. Fif ty bushels of grain is an ordinary load for a team of horses. Thus the 490 bushels hauled by the thrasher engine on the experimental trip would have required ton trips if hauled by team.
