Reviewing a Kindness.
If you have done a kind thing, do not
spoil It by talking too much about it.
The people who an nil the time draw
ing attention to their kindness and gen
erosity, and the sacrifices they have
made, are not the ones who can expect
the most sincere gratitude.

May 24 is the anniversary of the

The most remarkable example of
allotropic disintegration, of metals is
perhaps that of tin. The investiga

only occur in a temperature not ex

Costly Law Proceedings.
The folly of rushing to the law to
settle every little dispute is demon
strated by an action between two pot

who decided in favor of the defendant

to pay all the costs incurred in the

Recommendation of Coutr rnrininr
It i hereby recommended that all of the
repair herein mentioned be made; that the
Golden Belt bridge" veit cf Ellis and the
Kinz bridge, which were planned last year
bat not built on account of insufficient ap
propriation for each, be built this year, new
estimates being made and balance of above
amount of last years appropriation herein
recommended: that all new culverts herein
described be built, galvanived iron being
spe ified for all Golden Belt road culverts
(set in. concrete ends) on account of proba
bility of changing or paving of that road
in a few years; all others being concrete.
It is also recommended that m new exten
tion of five spans to Yohe bridge be built
provided that satisfactory arrangement is
made -with the Missouri Valley Bridge ft
Iron Co. to replace span lost in recent hiirh
water as per their guaranty - bond. The
river bed is so very wide at this point that
there ought to be that many new scans
added to make that a really substantial, use
ful and enduring bridge. All other bridges
covered by the report are recommended to'
be built as herein set forth. A levy of one
mill is recommended to raise funds to cover

Changes in Modern Face.
The tendency of the modern face,
according to Prof. James Keith, lec
turer on anthropology at the Royal
Institute, London, England, is to be
come wedge-shaped, with a longer, nar
rower and more prominent nose. Prom
inences above the eyes are disappear
ing, and the brow is becoming smooth
and" of an even contour. These changes
in the human face, declared the scien
tist, are due to changes In methods of
mastication from the earlier days of
the human race.
