Tarrytown Merchant Gets Intr Trou ble After Nine-Year Mental Sleep. New York Tribune: Hyman Levy, a lead merchant of Broadway, Tarry town, N. Y., scratched his leg nine years ago, and it was so slow in heal ing that, through worry, Levy's mind was so affected that even when very close to old friends he failed to recog nize them. He was as mentally asleep as Rip Van Winkle, a former storied resident of the neighborhood. He remained most of the time in his house, living like a hermit, and it was thought that his case was hopeless. - Three months ago his sons per suaded him to visit their camp at Cro ton Point. Change of scene and mode of living helped Levy greatly, and when he returned to Tarrytown a few weeks ago his mind was normal. Then be went about inquiring for his friends. Most of them, he learned, were dead.! Levy was asked by some of his old companions in the volunteer fire de partment to ride with them to a fire. He accepted, and the excitement he got out of it, it is thought, awoke all his old vigor and desire to return to business, which he has done. But he should make no more mis takes such as the one he made the other night. A practical joker always, he went into a store formerly occu pied by a friend. He didn't know that the place had changed hands until, on turning out the lights in a spirit of fun, an infuriated Italian cobbler went at him. An explanation was made. News of Our Neighbors Items of Interest to Our Readers Clipped From Our Contemporaries HILGER. (Hilger Herald.) The commercial club observed its second anniversary by a smoker and "Dutch" lunch Monday evening. It was the mos t enthusiastic gathering ever held in Hilger. The following officers were unani m , "V r unanl mously elected lor the coming year: ____ _ ____ play, to be given in the near future. President, T. R. Matlock; vice-presi dent, J. M.

Our genial deputy sheriff, James Lane, sprang a surprise on our towns people Friday morning by returning from Lewistown a benedict, having married Mrs. Francis Graham in Lew istown last Tuesday. Mr. Lane has the best wishes of his many friends. He will probably erect a dwelling house in the near future. i operation in Stanford was revived * as t w-eek and indications now STANFORD. (Stanford World.) The flour and grist mill being erect ed in Stanford by the Spady & Sons company is rapidly nearing comple tion, construction of the mill building having advanced sufficiently to per mit the installation of machinery be ing commenced, which latter work is now well under way. The first con signment of machinery arrived last week and on Saturday the actual work of putting it in place was begun by D. R. Atliey, an expert from Free mont, Nebraska, and who is assisted by J. E. Deering, of Adams, Nebraska, and Mr. Spady and his sons. After a month of inactivity, the movement to place a creamery in are that a plant will be erected and opened for business just as soon as the necessary details can be con summated. The creamery question was agitated during the early part of the present winter, but for various reasons the things that would have reduced the proposal to a definite working basis were not accomplished and the matter has been in an in definite, uncertain state until the pres ent week. A. C. Powell and H. M. Packard were this week summoned to appear in Great Falls on March 5 for service on the federal jury, which will be in session at the electric city during the greater portion of next month BUFFALO. (Buffalo Review.) A handsome and substantial new bridge has just been completed south east of Buffalo on Rossfork. This now gives the farmers in the neigh borhood of Garneill access to Buffalo, the best trading point in the basin, in the spring an artificial channel will be excavated to straighten the current of the creek in the vicinity of this bridge, and some necessary grading will be done. This is a good, strong bridge and built to hold up the heavi et of tractor engines. The work was done by the Security Bridge Co. Two carloads of hogs shipped from White Sulphur Springs, Meagher county, sold by Rappal Bros. & Co. at Chicago, topped the market at $8.90. They were wheat fed and finished Montana hogs. Things are doing at Buffalo. The Society of Equity made up a car of hogs and sold them to DeWolf, the cattle and hog buyer, and C. A. Gage by, the local merchant, is buying and shipping potatoes in car lots. Mr. Gageby commenced loading a car of potatoes Monday. If you have any thing to sell, call up Buffalo. B. C. White delivered three loads of hogs to the American Society of Equity shipper Monday. F. E. Grissom delivered four loads of hogs to the American Society of Equity shipper in Buffalo Monday. The Phillips Land & Livestock Co. delivered two loads of hogs to the American Society of Equity shipper Monday. HOBSON. (Hobson Star.) Nick Hahn, the well-known manager of the Five Springs ranch southwest of this city, took the editor and M. J. Keenan out to the ranch Wednesday morning to show what can be done in the Judith basin in the way of rais ing hogs. He showed us a bunch of 42 hogs that wpre nint months old and will easily average 275 pounds apiece, and since last November have been fed on spring wheat. Never has it been our experience to look at a nicer drove of hogs and we believe the equal to the finest ever raised in the corn states. Mr. Hahn states that the matter of feeding hogs is a very simple matter when a self-feeder such as he has built i nthe hog lot is used. It has a capacity of about eighty bush els and once a week he fills the same with wheat. Water from a spring runs through the lot, which furnishes an abundance of pure, clean water for the hogs. We would advise our farm ers who are interested in hog raising to call at this ranch and look at the feeding arrangement that Mr. Hahn has installed, for it is not only a feed saver, but also a labor saver as well, and the hogs show the result of this method of feeding. Mr. Hahn states that the wheat fed this bunch of hogs will net him over one dollar ner bushel. Miss Margaret Ryan and Miss Grace Sullivan, of Minneapolis, arrived last Tuesday and are visiting at the John Shea home. DENTON. (Denton Recorder.) The first genuine snowfall of the winter occurred last Saturday, when about eight inches fell, the storm raging all day. On this account the firemen's dance was postponed until Monday evening. Bert J. Ackerly, of Alton, brought in a loa dof hogs Monday, which were sold to the Barney Meat company. Mr. Ackerly says that he raised eighty hogs for market the past season out of a handful of brood sows. The large residence of E. D. Barney on Main street has been completed and the family of Mr. Barney moved to Denton this week. Mr. Barney has eight children, which will be included in the school census in the city of Denton. A deal was consummated last week whereby Frank Strouf became owner of the building now occupied by the Barney Meat company. Mr. Strouf traded forty acres of land about a mile and a half north of town and two lots in Denton for the property. The Barney Meat company bought another carload of hogs for shipment this week. This makes the second car to be shipped from Denton within a month. Hog raising is a profitable investment and many more farmers will branch into this industry the com ing season. The contract for the handsome new brick building which will be erected by the First State Bank of Denton will probably be let next Saturday. SUPERSTITIONS GALORE. Almost Everything Is Connected With Some Ancient Belief. Philadelphia Ledger: After Dr. Fletcher Bascon Dressier-got through with his investigations and the Uni versity of California had published them, it was apparent that there are some 3,000 superstitions distributed among about 45 per cent of the popu 'iition. Pretty nearly everything under the sun seems to be connected with some superstition, from an owl to the hem of your skirt. Never hear of either? Well, if your skirt happens to be turned up a bit at the bottom, you can be sure some one is thinking of you. You can, however, make every one think more, especially the men, if you wear a slit skirt. As for the owl, if it should come into the house, trouble is sure to follow. The best tiling to do when you expect an owl is to put all the cut glass into the china closet and the china closet in the dining-room closet, and then lock that closet. For the owl, you can then use anything; a broom is gen erally pretty handy. The first time pigs cross your threshold make them jump over your pants' belt, or your wife's garter, or the maid's apron; then they will come home regularly. A plan now in use among up-to-date American farmers is to keep the hogs in regular pens and feed them twice a day. It is regard ed as a scheme more popular with the wife and the maid. The other way is recorded as being a German one. If there are white horses in the barn good luck is due to come to the house. That's a German stunt, too; but the United States has shown of late a marked preference for gray horses—since about the time when it was discovered that, if you met a red headed girl, you'll meet a white horse. The red-headed girls lately have changed, so that the white horse has disappeared, too. But we're going strong now on grays. It is bad luck to hear a dog bark at night. This superstition has been found to depend on circumstances; it is a matter of whose dog. If it's the dog next door, the best thing to use is a flatiron; but a good aim is even more valuable. Women believe that if they go some where on Monday they will be on the go the rest of the week. That may be the explanation of the fact that women like to wash on Monday. Kill a cat and you will have bad luck for seven years; there is, however, no special superstition as to kittens, so it is best to begin on your cats early. The Germans, to cite only one more out of the 3,000, believe that if your right hand itches you will get money; if your left hand itches you will spend much. Americans are the only peo ple in the world who have both hands itching all the time. VOTING BY MAIL. Novel Scheme That May Be Tried Out in Milwaukee. Boston Globe: Voting by mail is be ing seriously considered by the elec tion commission of Milwaukee. Sev eral of the commissioners are known to be much impressed with the plan, and it looks as if Governor Walsh will have to hurry if he wants to lead the way. The governor is trying to work out a practical plan of voting by mail. He might secure assistance from the Milwaukee scheme. The western city's plan calls for placing the ballots in the hands of the voters about 10 days before the pri maries or elections are held. Three envelopes are necessary. The largest envelope, which is addressed to the voter, it is proposed, would contain a return envelope, properly stamped and addressed to the election commission, a ballot, and a blank envelope in which the voter seals his ballot after he has marked it. On the back of the envelope ad dressed to the election commission the voter would sign his name, ad dress and precinct, so that the signa ture could be compared with the one on file in the registration list. This provision, it is claimed, would prevent a voter from voting twice and also would prevent "ringers" from voting. Returns could be made until the night when voting ceases. Among the advantages claimed for the Milwaukee system are: 1. Ballots, having been placed in the hands of the voter 10 days before election, could be carefully studied be fore being marked. 2. Long waits at the voting booths would be eliminated. 3. Workers would not be forced to lose time and pay on election day. 4. Farmers would not be obliged to travel miles to the voting places. 5. Voting would be made so easy that the chronic stay-at-homes and in valids could all have voice the government, making it representative of the whole people. Voting by mail has been indorsed in these columns before, when many arguments in favor of the plan were put forward. It is the voting method of the future. FINDS TEETH IN STOMACH.

Lock Box 163, or Telephone O. J. Johnsrud, 'Phone No. 632. this instrument brought to light a set of false teeth. This surprised the doc tors and nurses, and their surprise became amazement when Mrs. Cooper expressed great wonderment as to how they had got there. She said she had no recollection of having swal lowed any teeth at any time, and, in fact, did not recall ever having mis laid a set. Mrs. Cooper will recover Horseflesh As Snail. Exportation of hundreds of thou sands of Roman, or white, snails to the United States this season has led to a small famine in Paris. To stop the American demand, the Roman va riety is being grown, and French cul tivators are nursing the American trade because higher prices are ob tained from Americans. Meanwhile shells ingeniously filled with carefully prepared cone of horseflesh are being sold as genuine Romans in many Paris restaurants.
