See BUSTER and TIGE =WET>NESDA Y, DECEMBER EIGHTH at THE GOLDEN RULE STORE A Rare Treat ADMISSION FREE Santa Ana line six miles from the city. Two other sons, Peter and John Jacobs, and Miss Josephine Solon, 19 years of age, leaped from the automobile and escaped with slight injuries. While an electric car in which the injured persons and the bodies of those who were killed was proceeding to the city from the scene of the ac cident it collided with a car on the Central avenue line at the corner of Seventh street and Central avenue, and eight more people were injured, some seriously. The first accident happened at a crossing, when the automobile in which the Jacobs family was return ing to the city, after spending Thanksgiving with friends at Watts, was driven upon the track directly in front of the swiftly moving car. The car struck the automobile on the side and hurled it 40 feet. The occupants were thrown with terrific force across the road and Jacobs and his four children—Anthony, aged 6; Clement, aged 4; Kate, aged 8 years, and Mamie, aged 16—-were dead when the horrified passengers on the car who had witnessed the accident reached them. Mrs. Jacobs, who held the baby in her arms, was thrown probably 50 feet and will die, while the baby, crushed under its mother's body, is thought to be fatally hurt. None of those injured in the second accident are likely to die. Make Gumbo Productive. Bozeman, Nov. 28.—To make "gumbo - ' or alkali soils productive is tile problem which is just being be gun by Prof. Edmund Burke of the department of chemistry in the Mon tana experiment station here. Not only in Montana but throughout the west there is much soil which is not fit tor cultivation because of the existence of "gumbo" or alkali. It is thought that the soil can be treated chemically in such a way as to de stroy the alkali. Some interesting developments are expected as the ex periments progress. The work is be ing done in co-operation with the United States department of agricul ture. This is only one of the experiments which the station men are planning for the coming year. Professor Burke is preparing a bulletin on the subject of alkali and its effect on Portland cement. This will be published in the spring. The tests have been going on several years and have attracted much attention from scientists all over the country. It has been proven that cement structures are destroyed by gradual crumbling if there ' is alkali mixed with the building ma terial, and the chemical department of the college hopes eventually t o find a means to prevent the action of the alkali. In New Home. 1 he Hopkins Bros, company, cash grocers, are now in their new build ing just below their old stand on Main street and are better than ever prepared to cater to their growing trade.

CENTURIES OF WAS CAN BE TRACED TO DISPUTE OVER LONG OR SHORT TRESSES French King's Obedience to Edict ot the Church Led to Bloodshed Be tween That Country and Eng land —Czar Taxed Beards. More than once a difference In the fashion of wearing the hair has de noted a division of factions. We have the well-known examples of the round heads and the cavaliers. To the for mer, long, curly hair was an abomina tion, they hated the flowing locks oi the gay cavaliers, and they regarded such tresses as a symbol of ungod!i ness. On the other hand, the cavaliers re garded the closely-cropped hair o! the stern-visaged roundheads as a symbol of narrow-mindedness, bigotry and cant. At the time of the conquest the English wore their hair long both upon the head and the upper lip while the chin was kept bare. The Normans, on the contrary, wore their hair very short, so that Harold's spies reported to the king: "The host did almost s- ■ :i to be priests, because they had till their face and both lips shaven." After the invasion the difference In appearance of the victors and van quished was accentuated by the tyran ny which compelled the Saxons to grow all their hair. In later days the Saxons, so far as regarding it as a sign of severity, took good care to let their hair grow on purpose, effectual ly to distinguish themselves from the Normans. The fashion of wearing long hair spread, and caused almost endless bother between the people and the clergy, who hasffd their objection upon St. Paul's declaration "that long hair was a shame unto a man." The pope decreed that long-haired people should be excommunicated when living, and should not be prayed for when dead. Prom nearly every pulpit the evil of long hair was pub lished, and the wearers were cursed. All this was- in vain, fashion laughed at it, and king and subject wore ring lets in defiance of the shorn priests. This war between the long-haired and the cropped soon had serious con sequences. There were all kinds of tumult, some of which had far-reach ing results, but it was in Franc where the question of the length of the hair altered history. Louis VII., unlike the disobedient English, obeyed the injunctions of the church and cut off all his flowing curls, until he resembled a monk in stead of a king. This caused the greatest consterna tion at the court, and the lively Elea nor of Guienne did nothing but make fun of her lord to the court's gallants. In fact, she lost all affect ion for the shorn sovereign, whom she looked upon, with contempt. Then came all manner of differ ences, terminating in divorce and the loss of Guinne and Poitou to the French sovereigns. The fickle Elea nor married the long-haired Henry, who afterward reigned as Henry II. of England, and she bestowed upon him those rich provinces of France. Had Louis VII. not cut off his hair the history of the world would have been quite different. Peter the Great was a monarch who decided that the Russians should be shaven, under penalty of a heavy tax for such as preferred to grow beards. The receipt which was given for this tax consisted of a copper token bear ing a hairy face on the one side and the date on the other. No man wear ing a beard could enter a town unless he produced one of these "borodovala," * hicli had to be renewed each year.— Pearson's Weekly. Breaking Away from Tradition. The new president of Dartmouth college will be the first, with a single exception very early in its history, who was not a clergyman. Another example of a conspicuously growing tendency. And a professor of physics seems somewhat distinctly removed from the old classical traditions.—Bos ton Transcript. The Critic's Duty It is sometimes (he painful duty of a judge to order a man to be hanged by the neck till he be dead; it is sometimes the painful duty of a critic to tell an author that his English is faulty, his arguments fallacious, and his imagination a minus quantity. But It Is never the duty of a judge to mingle with the dreadful utterance of doom sarcastic remarks about the prisoner's inferior social status; nor is it ever the duty of a critic to men tion an author's connection with 'gallipots," or to sneer at his poverty, or to insist on the fact that his work was originally printed in a journal purchasable for the sum of one half penny.—Arthur Machen, in T. P.'s Weekly, London. Are You a Beggar? All the beggars are not holding out a hand to passers-by in the street You probably know the man who is ever whining for help. If a farmer he thinks his neighbors should help him get in his grain or do his plowing. If in business, he is always trying to borrow, or wanting some one to boost him, or drum up customers. He never seems to think of relying on his own efforts. There is a well known fable about the larks in a grain field. As long as the farmer depended on his neighbors and relations to come and cut his grain the larks felt perfectly safe. When the man determined to cut the grain himself the larks knew it was time to seek safety elsewhere There are times when every one needs help, but help should be asked only when one has made every pos sible effort for himself. Too much help given a man weak ens him character.—-Milwaukee Jour nal. From Bench to Broom. Police Judge Thomas Stanton of East St. Louis gave up his office and took a job on the streets as sweeper. The doctors advised him that he must get busy out of doors or in a short time he would need no employment of any kind. It is rather unusual for a man who is ordered out of doors to take to the streets of a city rather than to the fields and the woods. But evidently in this case the man's lungs were all right, and it was the exer cise that lie needed. The judge claimed that he noted an immediate improvement in his condition. His old job paid him $300 per month, while his new one yields but $1.50 per day. But he gave up the old one cheerfully. For no doubt he holds that it is better to be a living street sweeper than a dead judge.—Burlington Hawk-Eye. What He Used. He is an urchin ol possibly six, with straight red hair and impish face. In the New Jersey suburb where he lives his name is a synonym for general deviltry, despite parental efforts. A few days ago an irate matron sent a note saying that her daughter had been shocked by the urchin's bad lan guage. Tearfully and somewhat helplessly a flushed young mother confronted a placid small boy. "What shall I do with you, son?" she asked. "What bad language can you have used that Mrs. Blank should forbid you to play with Nellie?" "Oh, nothing much," was the re ply. "Only the ordinary swear words 1 use about the house, mother. 1 wouldn't worry about it if I were you." Stockyards to Be Beautified. Unoccupied places in the Chicago stockyards are to be made to bloom. Instead of unattravtive lanes and pens and roadways and great bare buildings, the yards are to present stretches of flower beds, with here and there buildings surrounded with shrubbery. The scheme originated with J. Ogden Armour, and the first fruits of his plan may be seen at the general offices of Armour & Co., where bright flowers are in bloom all around the buildings. The packers hope that the visitors to the yards will find comfort fn the flowers and shrubbery after they have listened to the thousand and one grating noises which fill the air at all hours of the day. Up from Cannibalism. Aathropologists, whose study is man and his prehistoric ancestors, be lieve that all existing races of men in a wild or savage state at times ate one another, and in modern man science sees traces in his thoughts and habits of ancient cannibalism. Fiji Islanders, in the time of C'apt. Cook, the renowned explorer, were the fiercest man-eaters that modem history knows anything about. Follow 1 :he * Crowd!
