Story of a Man Who Sought and Found Danger Unsurpassed by any of those enchanting tales that lift the reader out of a prosaic world into the realm of romantic, breath-taking adventure. Bull-Dog Drummond, returned from the war, finds civilian life dull, flat and unprofitable. Fate flings him into a new scrap and before he finishes with it, he begins to think that the little affair of 1914 1918 was mere child's play. There's a girl, too and indeed every element of a thoroughly satis factory story. Love, mystery, humor and thrills that dovetail into chills, with no time to catch your breath between. Here is an amazing hero and adventurer of whom you will probably hear more in succeeding volumes, as he is too good to be confined to the pages of a single novel. Be sure to make his acquaintance.

Zimmerman Adjournment The Strangest Story Ever Told According to the Hiawatha World, this is the way that printers "mixed up" two items in a Savannah, Ga., newspaper: "The wedding was one of the pret tiest of the winter season, and many were the envious glances cast upon the blushing bride and stalwart bride groom. Both reptiles are supposed to be of the lizard family, though the larger of the two, a strange armor ed creature, is difficult to classify. After an extended honeymoon at Palm Beach and . Miami, the young couple will be at home in the snake house at the Zoo, where a place has been prepared for them near the giant turtles and the boa constrictors."

Danger In Tco Close Shavs. According to the statement of a New York physician, shaving in creases the liability of the individual to neuralgia and other nervous trou bles of the face, and close shaving of the upper lip each tlay often has been credited with weakening the nerves that affect the eyes, causing acute eye trouble that disappeared when the mustache was permitted to grow. English Cattle Importation. The importation of horned cattle from Ireland and Scotland to England was prohibited by law in 1003. but later the law was repealed and the Importations were very large, but not until 1S42 did England receive Im portations of cattle from 'foreign countries, and until 184G levied a con siderable tax on each animal im ported. The Impossible. A Kansas judsre says a minimum length of courtship should be fixed by law to prevent hasty marriages. The judge may know a lot about law and the power of the courts and what ought to be done to regulate society, but it's a cinch he doesn't know much about the Impossibility of pre venting from getting married two people who have made up heir minds to marry. Usefulness of Cedar Chests. Cedar Is used in various forms for repelling insects. The chips from pen cil factories are distilled for their oil or ground up and sold for use In protecting rugs and woolen garments from moths. The resistance to moths of chests made from Tennessee red cedar and Spanish cedar is widely ad vertised. But the resistance to insect pests Is due not so much to the cedar odor as to the fact that such chests are well made with tight cov ers and are thus physically exclusive. Something Wrong.

Another thin- the thorn- J learns after a while as he blunders along through this old vale of tears and laughter, trying to do the best he can under all the circumstances, is to distinguish rather carefully between the reformers who really mean it and the ones who are doing it to make their Jobs last. Ohio State Journal. World Prices Lower for Meat and Live Stock The recent declines in live stock and meat prices in the United States appear to be part of a world-wide movement toward lower price levels, say specialists of the Bureau cf Markets, United States Department of Agriculture. According to a re port of the consul general at Auck land, recently received by the depart ment, rump' steak in New Zealand brought on April 1, 20 cents a pound; sirloin steak, 15 cents; corned brisket, 8 cents; legs of mutton, 11 cents; mutton chops, 13 cents; neck and breast of mutton, 7 cents; side of mutton, 10 cents; and veal, 9 cents. These prices are based upon the nor mal rate of $4.8665 to the pound sterling. The report also shows that between March 1, 1920, and March 1, 1921, fine steers in New Zealand dropped $3.65 per 100 pounds, selling at $10.46; prime and choice steers, $3.52, at $9.49 to $10.21; plain and ordinary steers, $4.01, at $7.30 to $9.00; cows and heifers, $5.22, at $4.87 to $9.73. Best wethers lost $2.71 per head, selling at $4.62 to $7.47; ewes, 67 cents, at $3.89 to $6.08; and lambs, $1.82, at $3.40 to $6.44. Comparisons of these prices with prices in American markets is im posible because of a difference in standards of grading in the two coun tries. For example, a choice steer in New Zealand might be placed in some other grade in the United States ORDINANCE NO. 898 An ordinance amending section four of ordinance number 704 and repealing said original section.
