When the Salary club gives an entertainment you are shure of a treat if you attend the one given for the benefit of Rev. B. F. Mc Intyre was a success In every way. Quite a sociable evening was en joyed at the gumdrop surprise par ty on Mrs. Fannie Barker, given in honor of her recent birthday. Sile received a number of useful as well as ornamental presents. and gum drops enough to last almost to her next birthday. The Sunshine band met last Tues day afternoon. The topic of the meeting was "The Wonderful Cup board," which though small, has numberless little shelves that can not be filled. The cupboard Is the brain or mind, and the things put upon the shelves are the things taken into our mind. The motto of the Sunshine band is to put some thing good upon the shelves each day. Mr. W. H. Barker. who went to South America writes that he is very much impressed with the country. lie is doing nicely. Says it is a good counltry, plenty of money in circu lation. His greatest draw back is that he doesn't speak Spanish. He also says in the town where he is located there are forty Catholic churches and one protestant church. That would be a good place for some of the Presbyterian ministers of this country, who are without a charge. What Seme Names Mios.

When President Blanco's admlnirtra tion In Venezuela was overturned, that official, who, report said. had accumu lated great wealth while in office, went to Paris. lie was strolling in a boule vard In the French capital when a passing lcedestrian arrested the pace of his coumpanion and slid: "See that manl' lie stole $3,J)0,000 when his government was overthrown." Quick as a flash Senor Blanco turned. "Beg pardon, sir," he said icily, "but it was $5,0O,00." The Real Thing. "Is this your writing?" asked the merchant as lie glanced over a written list of goods wanted. "No," replied Mr. MeekLer; "my wife wrote tile list." "WellII. shle, certainly knows how to handle a Ian," said thic merchant. "Her diction Is a lisolutely ls'rfect." "Yes,. I sullppose her diction's all right," replied Meeker. with a deep sigh.

I have. however, seen big, old fish upon which the eye could detect no spot, the general color behing gray lash green, with a few dim reflections. Again I have seen fine fish of a nonde script tint, as like that of an old, dry rubber boot as anything I can think of. The young and old of the great northern pike have the sides marked with oval whitish or yellowish spots several shades lighter than the ground color; hence a fish with spots darker than the ground color is a 'lunge; with lighter spots, a northern pike.-Edwyr Sandys in Outing. The oldest UrlttLs Game. In one form or another football, the oldest British game, has existed for centuries. Some see it in the game "harpaston." played by the Greeks, the name of which, they say, by deriva tlon, suggests that the ball might he seised and carried into goal. No trace of the game, as now understood, is found outside of Britain, but in Eng land it has flourished for centurles. Shrove Tuesday, in olden times, was the great annual football day, when the fun was fast and furious, shops and houses being closed for fear of damage and both sexes and all ages taking part. Fitzatephen in his "History of Lon don, 1175," makes the earliest mention of the game in England. He tells us of young men of the city annually go Ing into the fields after dinner to play at the well known game of ball on Shrove Tuesday. Traditions of Chester and Derby bear this out, where It was long the custom to do the same, Ches ter's first ball being the head of a Dane.-Pearson's Weekly. What He Wanted to Knew. It may not be generally known, but a certain prominent resident belongs to a family in which he is one of twen ty-four brothers and sisters, sixteen of whom are now living. There were two mothers in the family, the first having eleven children and the second thir teen. The man in question belongs to the second group. One of his sisters grew to maturity, married, had seven children and died before he was born. He was an uncle before birth and a great-uncle at five years of age. It is said that when the latter event came to pass and the youngster was Intprm ed that he was now really and truly a great-uncle he who had been an uncle for live long years cocked his features into 1u exprnrslon of sadness and re plied. "That may be all right, but when am I going to be a grau'pa"-Annu Ar bor Times. A Insinuatioen. It was a warm Sunday morning in church. Fans were fluttering, hymn als flopping, handkerchiefs mopping streaming faces, and the minister thought his audience a little lax In-at tention. Finally he led up to a rebuke for Its lack of consideration for sacred ,:ud important things. Said he: "P'aople are prone to attend to the unimportant things of life." And he gave a few examples to il lustrate his idea. Presently he made his pertinent application. "Now," said he, "you are attentive to your own comfort this morning, to the sinful neglect of the holy word. Take no thought for the heat," he said dramatically. "for you may be dead tomorrow."-Detroit Free Press. Inuencee of Chess. If a Scottish scientist is to be be lieved, the people of those countries in which chess is most frequently played are Invariably more civilized than those who inhabit countries in which little attention is paid to this great game. The best chess players in the world, he points out, were to be found in Spain during the period of its splendor and in Italy during the renaissance, whereas today there are few persons in those countries who, care for the game. Notalr IFsh. Many fish can produce musical sounds. The red gurnard has earned the name of sencock from the crowing noise which it makes, while another species is called the piper. Others, not ably two species of ophidiunim, have sound producing apparatus, consisting of small movable hones, which can be made to produce a sharp rattle. The curious "drumming" made by the Med iterranean tish known as the maigre can be heard from in depth of thirty fathomis. The Bee'D Market iasket.

I han t. sclnt mu'ch of a long life II the o,.Iervation of Inhorses.. I have rti-ltel them. Lroken them, trained them, ridden them, driven them in ev ery form from the plow to four-in hand. The rLsult of these years of study is summed up In one sentenee-I believe the horse to we part maniac ,_i8 !art huot. Every horse at some time in his life develops into a homi cidal maniac. I believe any man who trusts himself or his family to the power of a horse stronger than himself to be lacking In common sense and wholly devoid of ordinary prudence, writes a Kentuckian to llarper's Week ly. I have driven one commonplace horse every other day for six years over the same road and then had him go crazy and try to kill himself and me because a leaf luttered down in front of him. I have known scores of horses, apparently trustworthy, appar ently creatures of routine, go wild and Insane over equally regular and rIeur ring phenomena. No amount of oh servation can tell when the brute will break out. One mare took two gener ations of children to school over the same quiet road and then In her nine teenth year went crazy becas a rooeter crowed alongside the road. She killed two of the children. If any one can tell me of one good reason why man should trust a horse. I should be glad to know. The Vale of Stantes. From the medical standpoint singing is a moat important exercise both by virtue of its influence on the emotions, on the respiratory movements and on the development of the lungs. Nothing better shows the beneflcal effect of singiging in developing the chest and warding off the lung diseases than the great pulmonary development and free dom from pulmonary disease ameag professional singers. Their general health, moreover, is exceptionally pd, and thbl Is probably in a large meas ure attributable to the mere exerclse of the calling. It is especallay useul in defective chest development and in chronic heart disease. Provided the patient can sing with comfort there is no condition in which singing is con tralndicated unless it be a tendency to tuberculosis or aneurismal hemoptysis. It Is scarcely necessary to say that the singer should be so clad as to allow aheolute freedom of the chest move ments, there should be no constriction of the neck or waist, the collar should be low and ample and the stays, if worn, ample and loose. mixed Metaphenr. A German lady in a town in Ventura county had a daughter who was her mother's pride. The mamma bears somewhat of a reputation as a Mrs. Malaprop and is also a prosperous mer chant. On one occasion the daughter, who assists her mother in the store, was by dint of hard work among rela tives and friends chosen as queen of a street carnival to be held in the town. Maternal pride ran riot in the elder woman's btwoat. To a friend she burst forth in this ecstatic strain: "Oh, mein Mollie! She vas so peau tiful as neifer vas! Dere van no gerrel so peautiful as mein Mollie! Und she vas sooch a goot cook-meln gracious, she vae sooch a goot cook! Und she vas sooch a goot tressmaker! Oh, dere vas no gerrel like mein Mollie! Und she vas de best clerk vat I effer haf in mein shtore! Und she vas a goot mu sicianer! Oh, mein Mollie vas de great est gerrel vat efer vas! She vas yust a jack of all rabbits!"-Los Angeles Herald. Keeky Autoeraph Alban. Probably the oddest and most pre doue autograph album that has ever existed lies in an almost unknown cor ner of western New Mexico. More than two centuries before our Saxon forefathers penetrated the des ert of the southwest the Spanish pi oneers, wandering through those lone ly wilds, found a rock so noble and so remarkable, even in a country of won derful stone monuments, that they, called it "El Morro" (The Castle). Wishing to leave some record for fu ture generations, they traced with the points of their swords their names up on its rough surface. Those names are there, with dates of their inscrip tion-in nearly every instance the early part of the seventeenth century. Prealslag Landlord-In one word, when are you going to pay your arrears? Hard Up Author-I will satisfy your demands as soon as I receive the mon ey which the publisher will pay me if he accepts the novel I am going to send him as soon as the work is finish ed which I am about to commence when I have found a suitable subject and the necessary inspiration. Paper of the Anetents. The interior bark of trees was for merly used to write upon, and its Latin name (llber, a harks seems to inti mate that its use was as ancient as the art of writing itself. In one re spect the bark was superior to the leaf. It could be rolled into a volume, while the leaf would crack if subjected to such a process. The 'nbrldged Channel.

According to a writer in the Lancet, the male human needs more food than the female not only on account of his larger stature, but also because he is the more katabulle of the two. The man tends to expend energy and the woman to store it up in the form of .at- he hkn.ns thl fatute, ml.t mrnal difference shews Itself in the very blood. The man has a larger percent age of chromocytes than the woman, showing that he needs a proportionate ly larger quantity of oxygen in order to maintain his more active combus tion, a fact which one may assoolate with his comparative freedom from chlorosls. Moreover, weightfor weght. his pulmonary capacity is greater than that of the woman, whose smaller re spiratory need Is further shown by the facility with which she can without discomfort diminish her breathing power by means of the corset. "rThe great contrast between the metabolic activity of the two . continues the writer, "was torcb brought home to me by a military dis play given by a troop of dusky -ma* sons, with whom were also a few male warriors. The women. in spite of their daily exertions, were all rounded and plump, some very much so. no single muscle showing through the skin. and it was notleed that their movements, though full of grace, lacked energy and 'go.' The men, on the other hand, were spare, their muscles standing out plainly under the shiny skin, and they, In further contrast with the women, displayed a truly amasing agility, bounding about and whirling round in a most astounding fasbln. The wom en, in short, were essentially anabollU. and the men were katabollc. I may here draw attention to the fact that men are apt to be larger meet eaters than women. Just as they are, possibly la cesequence of this very fact, more prone to drink alcohol and to smoke tobacco" SLEEPING HEROES. UI ghtw NMe of the Past That Are Uxoeted to Retuan. Is there any race that has not its sleeping hero? A correspondent re cently pointed out that the time for the fulfillment of the prophecy that the tenth of Krishna will restore to India her Independence is near at hand, and every nation has some such savior to whom the people look. West country rustics still believe that Arthur did not die, but sleeps in Avalon, and that in the hour of Britain's need be will awake, deliver the land and restore the golden age. In Germany it is a popular belief that Charles V will some day wake from hbls enchanted sleep to reign over Germany, Spal, Portugal, Denmark, Belgium and Hol land. Thousands of French peasants hold that Napoleon is only sleeping and that at some future time be will reappear and rule. And Mr. Newbolt has enshrined the Devon legend that Drake is only listening for the drum. The Irish peasantry steadfastly re fuse to believe that Mr. Parnell Is really dead. They assert that his death was a ruse, that he was an interested spectator of his own funeral and that when the time comes he will emerge from retirement to give Ireland her in dependence. Every true Moslem be lieves that when antichrist appears Mohammed Mohadl will awake and conquer him. A Moorish legend deo lares that Bobadil el Chico sleeps spellbound near the Alhambra and that one day he will awake to re-es. tabllah the Moors as rulers of Grana da. The Servians look to King Lager, slain by the Turks in 1889., as their final hope, and should Switzerland be again threatened by tyrants Bwiss folklore declares that the three mem hers of the Tell family who are sleep ing at Rutill, near the Vierwald Staten-Bee, will rise from their en chanted slumber and maintain the freedom of the land.-London Chront ele. epit Courtship. When a Ilopi maiden decides which of the eligible young men of the tribe she wishes to marry, she goes and sits in his house and grinds corn until he Is sufficiently impressed by her inodus try to marry her. After the ceremony, which is an elaborate one, the couple go to live in the wife's house. If she tires of her husband, she can obtain a divorce by merely throwing his saddle out of the house. After marriage the house, fields and all their property except the herds belong to the wife. The Hopis are indulgent parents. The right of the children to do as they please is never questioned. Mow a Womrn Gets a Seat. "I will tell you how to work It," said a woman, whose figure showed she would be tired by standing, to a com panion In a Broadway car. "When there Is no vacant selt, watch for two men who are in conversation and stand right In front of them.
