Remarkable Engagement That Took . Place in Beverly Harbor in 1773 —British Commander Finally Glad to Withdraw. In Beverly harbor, off the point on which President Taft will make his summer home, a picturesque engage ment of the revolution was fought. A quiet autumn day in 1775 Deacon Joseph Stephens, happily storing his golden harvest of corn, was startled by a cannon ball that crashed through the wall of his barn and knocked the nigh wheel from his favorite chaise. A loud boom came up from the har bor. With it, the deacon's-indignation rose to fighting point. Dropping his corn fork and seizing his musket, he ran to the water front to punish who ever it was that had damaged his ve hicle. He threw himself behind the huge bowlders of Washington street beach. Thrusting his musket through a crevice, he opened fire on the enemy, the British ship of war Nautilus. For a while the strange and unequal en gagement of one man against a ship of war was maintained. Gunners of the Nautilus not being able to see the deacon behind his huge natural fortress, turned their guns upon a more shining mark, and tired upon the town, making the spire of the Old South eimrch their special target. In the line of fire lived a stout dame, who was baking bread when the can nons began to boom. She had just put a batch of bread into the oven, and she refused to move, even though the entire British force came. Curi oslty got the better of her determina tion, however. She peeked out to see what was going on. A cannon bail whizzed by. She turned in terror and fled, and she did not stop running un til she was in the depths of the deep est valley on Rial side. Minutemen hurried to re-enforce the deacon. Cannoneers manned the guns on Hospital point, Beverly, and on fort Lee at Salem Willows. A cross fire of cannon balls and a sprinkling of mus ket bullets was poured Into the Nau tilus. The privateer Pilgrim, in pur suit of which the Nautilus had come Into the harbor, ran around the corner -of Hospital point into shallow waters, and was safe from pursuit. In bis eagerness for prey the Brit ish captain forgot the falling tide. When the fire upon him made his po sition uncomfortable he gave orders to withdraw, but the falling tide had left his ship fast aground. For a while the Yankees made a tar get of the Nautilus. But the guns and 'cannons of the time were not armor piercing, nor even oak plank piercing, at a range of half a mile. So practice in marksmanship and what pleasure there was in shooting at an enemy was all that the Yankees got for their •effort*. When the tide rose the Nautilus put but to sea. Deacon Stephens went back home and mended the nigh wheel of his favorite chaise and the stout dame returned home and took the bread from the oven. High Voltage Don't Kill. While In the power house of the North Georgia Electric Company, at Buford, Ga., recently, Capt. G. W. Buf ford, a member of the city council received 50.000 volts of electricity and still lives. He came in contact with a wire carrying 60.000 volts accidentally touching it with his left arm, and the current passed through his body It melted the nails out of his shoes and badly mutilated his face where he wore gold rimmed glasses. Capt But Cord was almost stripped naked by the current The physicians do not •nderstand how he escaped instant 4eath. ALWAYS ON OPPOSITE SIDES. Delancey Nicoll an<i Clarence Shearn Like the Connecticut Farmer and His Wife. When Delancey Nicoll pushes the bell on the pearly gates he'll find Clarence J. Sliearn inside trying to serve an injunction forbidding St. Pe ter to open the portals, says the New York Globe. Mr. Nicoll and Mr. Shearn are, perhaps, the best knock about team in legal vaudeville to-day. They are so consistently engaged on opposing sides that their tour in the stirring melodrama, "The Gould Case; or, Who Kept the Diary," which should have attracted as much atten tion as an all-star Lambs cast, was dismissed with a mere nod by the public. And yet it was the gentlemen who are playing the legal lead who ought to be under the performing spotlight, while those who had the name parts in that tank show might well be neglected. Mr. Nicoll and Mr. Shearn have fought each other so long that the old story of the Con necticut farmer might well apply. He was riding back from the cemetery with his nephew after burying his wife. "Well, she's gone," said the be reaved husband. The nephew assented dutifully. "She kep' good care of me for 40 year," said the relict. The nephew said that was so, alas. "And do you know," said the mourn er, "toward the last I almost got to like her." Domestic Science Teaching.

And still the manufacture of an tiques goes merrily on. An English authority declares that there is not a variety of famous old English pot tery that Is not imitated on a large scale for the English market. Contin ental factories are the sinners mostly. A firm in Hungary sends out such ex cellent copies that many a collector is deceived. This firm, it is said, has imitated nearly all the important cer amics of Europe and the east. An other, a French firm, has simply flood ed the market with clever imitations of Worcester, Derby and the rest. The beginner who pins his faith to the mark is making a mistake. The gold anchor is always found on spurious Chelsea; only experts know that no gold anchor at all is found on the earliest and finest Chelsea. A case in the courts brought out lately a trick the German imitators had for hiding these spurious marks from the custom house officials. They simply paste a label with the familiar "Made in Germany" minted on it over the mark. The "old china" case tried in London not long ago revealed the extent of this imitation business, but it Is doubtful whether people will not go on being deceived just the same. Rags wanted. Democrat. Law of Attraction. The attractions of men to women and women to men are full of. the most perplexing inconstancies and contradictions imaginable. It is, for instance, a physical law that magnet ism is not simple attraction of one thing for another, but the difference of two opposing forces of attraction and repulsion, of which the former is the greater. The same law holds in relation to the attraction of men and women for each other, in which, as a rule, the masculine is the superior force. Rags wanted. Democrat.

King is the man who was killed about three weeks ago by Joseph Gass and the report that he had also been shot, the wound thus made not having been discovered at the time of the first autopsy, being the cause of the order of a second autopsy The physicians who made the second autopsy found no evidence of a bullet wound and that phase of the case. was thus disposed of. Gass will be: tried in December, probably for sec ond degree murder. GETTING READY FOR CENSUS. Enormous Amount of Printing Re* quired by the U. S. Government. Washington, Nov. 28.—Census Di rector Durand has received from As sistant Director William F. Willough by the general schedule for the census of agriculture, April 15 next, which Mr. Willoughby, in conjunction with Professor Le Grand Powers, chief statistician for agriculture, and the advisory board of farm economists and other agricultural experts, has been formulating during the summer. Director Durand has approved the form and subdivision of the inquiries and has ordered 9,000,000 copies of the schedule to be printed by the government printing office and in readiness before January 1st, although they will not be placed in the hands of the 45,000 farm enumerators until the usual time before the enumera tion date. It is believed there are nearly 7,000,000 sparate farms in the United States, each requirng a sep arate schedule. The schedule is printed on both sides of a single sheet, 13 inches long and 16 inches wide, of white writing paper, 26 by 32 inches. There is a three-inch wide column of instruc tions to enumerators on both left sides of the sheet so that it can be cut off after the filled-in schedule has been returned to the census bureau. This makes the schedule smaller in size and better adapted for handling in tabulation than previous schedules. A separate book of instructions to enumerators supplements the sched ule information. The 9,000,000 copies will consume 4,500 reams of paper, which, counting 52 pounds to the ream, will make a weight of 234,000 pounds. The charge for printing, including the cost of paper, will be $13,660. The schedule is so standardized that it will feed on IT FITS THE POCKET, THE REGULAR POST CARD SIZE $10.00, $20.00 and $25.00 We are exclusive kodak agents. Wilson - Seiden Drug Co.
