Maynard family has been prominent
for many years in this county, where
it has enjoyed a reputation for hon
esty and trustworthiness.
The funeral services for the de
ceased were conducted by Rev.
Marvey Hostetler, D. D., of this city,
a former pastor of the family, and
were held at the family residence on
Saturday morning, April 22, 1911, at
11 o'clock. The remains were con
veyed to the Vail cemetery by the
members of Diamond lodge of Masons,
whose officers conducted the burial

High School Notes.
A number of the high school girls

The high school boys held a meet

The last number of the lecture
course was given on Monday evening
of this week, when Edwin W. Lanham,
of Cedar Falls, lectured on "The
World's Battle Ground." There was a
full attendance for the last number,
and we may safely say that Mr. Lan
ham delivered one of the most in
structive and entertaining lectures
which has ever been given before a
Denison audience. He held the rapt
attention of everyone, and his remarks
were so impressive as to be long re
membered by all those who heard him.
The lecture course as a whole has
been very good. The course has been
varied so as to please the most exact
ing. The management of the course is
to be congratulated on the selections
which they have made, and we hope
that Denison will have as good a
course next year as this.

A1 Lyman, who has just returned
from a visit at Hutchinson, Kan., tells
us that he saw a number of streets
in that city that are paved with bitu
liiliic paving and that it has not
proved a great success. The princi
pal business streets of Hutchinson are
paved with this material and the pave
ment lias only been down two years
and has already shown great signs of
wear and so great in fact that the
paving is being taken up and re
placed with brick. Mr. Lyman says
the pavement has great holes in it and
that it seems that it is not of sufficient
strength to withstand the heavy traf

Salle, was a candi­

publican primaries for municipal
judge, and caine within sixteen votes
of receiving the nomination. This is
an excellent showing, considering the
fact that Mr. Fletcher is a compara
tively new man in Aberdeen, and in
face of the fact that his opponent was
a long-time resident of that city.

Depends on the Dog.
Two Broadway business men met
before a bar. They were good friends.
"I'm worried a little," said one.
"My chauffeur ran over a dog today
and killed it."
"Oh, I wouldn't worry about a little
thing like that," said the other. "The
dog probably got in the way. These
dogs are a pest."
"But it was your dog."
"What!" came from the second.
"My dog? I'm sorry, but that will
cost you $100. That chauffeur of
yours is too careless. I insist on the

Several other matters were dis
cussed during the evening, but no fur
ther action was taken. So far as the
plans for Friday afternoon and night
are concerned, it is the purpose to ex
tend to the Northwestern railroad
visitors a cordial welcome and enable
them to meet the business men of
Denison during the afternoon, and the
members of the club at their hall in
the early part of the evening, after
which everybody will adjourn to the
Hotel Denison, where the banquet will
be served. We suggest to the business
men of Denison to make an effort to
extend to our visitors a hearty greet
ing and to make them feel that our
city lias no demand to make on the
company except what is fair and rea
Thomas Jefferson's Opinion of the Ora
tor and Patriot.
When William Wirt was engaged in
writing the memoirs of Patrick Henry
he turned for information to Thomas
Jefferson, who had been associated
with the orator for many years, ask
ing his aid in furnishing biographical
material for the work. The correspond
ence between Wirt and Jefferson, pub
lished in the Pennsylvania Magazine
of History and Biography, from the
manuscript collection of John Gribbel.
has a decidedly Interesting passage
showing the opinion Jefferson held
about his famous colleague. In answer
to Wirt's first request Jefferson re
plies with an assent and adds a gen
eral and unfavorable summary of
Henry's character:
"He was certainly the man who gave
the first impulse to the ball of revolu
tion. were I to give his character in
general terms, it would be of mixed
aspect. I think he was the best
humored man in society I almost ever
knew, and the greatest orator that
ever lived, he had a consumate knol
edge of the human heart, which di
recting the efforts of his eloquence
enabled him to attain a degree of pop
ularity with the people at large never
perhaps equalled, his judgment in
other matters was inaccurate, in mat
ters of law it was not worth a copper:
he was avaricious & rotten hearted
his two great passions were the love
of money & of fame but when these
came Into competition the former pre
dominated. If the work you propose is
not destined to come out speedily 1
will endeavor to recollect what may be
of use to it."

Their Importance Is Much Greater
Than Their Number.
Among the players we do not use the
word "signal." With us it is a "sign."
There are not as many "signs" used on
a ball club as the public would believe.
Of course the catcher must "sigu" the
pitcher for every ball that he throws.
That is to prevent confusion or, as we
say. to keep from "crossing each
other." The catcher has a sign for a
curve ball, a fast ball and a slow onfe.
To ball players all curve balls, such
as the drop and the outcurve. are call
ed "a curve." The catcher gives the
same sign for any one of them. We
do not call a ball that jumps "in" a
curve. Ball players do not recognize
the incurve. That is called a fast ball.
Any ball thrown by a right handed
pitcher with sufficient speed will jump
inward to a slight degree. The out
curve and drop are unnatural curves,
and the ball must be spun in an un
natural manner to get that peculiar
The only other "sign" of importance
is the one the batter gives to the run
ner when he intends to hit the ball. If
he wants the runner to start as he
swings (the hit and run play) he gives
him a certain sign. There are any
number of signs used for this play.
Sometimes the batter gives it by rub
bing his hand over the small end of
the bat Again, he may give it by
knocking the dust from his shoes with
the big end of the bat—John J. Mc
Graw in Metropolitan Magazine.
Kahnrs Who Can Regularly Make a
Hundred Miles a Day.
Ordinary Marathon races seem rath
er insignificant compared with the
regular performances of a certain east
Indian caste. These Kahars, also
known as Jhinwarb, live in the Pun
jab. where for centuries they have
acted as runners, fishermen and water
fowl catchers.
The men are trained runners and are
said to be able to go a hundred miles a
day without resting. According to
Baily's Magazine, there is a well au
thenticated. instance that Tilia Ram,
the son of Lalu Ram, carried dis
patches 300 miles in three days—from
Mean-Mir to Meerut.
The point discussed, however, is
whether the normal exertions of the
Kahar post runners and the similar ex
ertions of jinrikislta men shortened
their lives, and it appears that the Ka
hars, trained from childhood to be dis
tance runners, live to be old men. They
are not only able to withstand the
strain of running great distances un
der a heavy load, but thrive under it.
The jlnrikisha man. too, notwith
standing his irregular diet excessive
use of liquor and exposure to the ele
ments, lives to a reasonable age. In
Tokyo when a census was taken of the
jinrikisha men a few years ago there
were found to be more than 1,300 who
were over fifty-five years of age.
Sailirg Is So Interesting.
The lady was reading a nautical
novel. She struggled along bravely for
a few minutes, but finally had to ap
peal to her husband.
"Gerald," she said, "the author says
that the boat was sailing 'wing and
wing.' What does that mean? I've
been on a yacht, but I never heard that
"That means," answered Gerald, re
joicing in the fact that he, too, had
spent several hours on a sailing ves
sei—"that means that the schooner had
her mains'l out to port and her fores'l
out to starboard, or vice versa."
"Oh, I see!" cried the lady. It's just
like a chicken—a wing on each side.
And now I understand why they call
those little sails in the middle 'jibs.'
It's short for 'giblets,' of coarse. Isn't
sailing interesting?"—Cleveland Plain
Ancient Architecture.
Herr Ivnauth. the architect in charge
of the Cathedral of Strassburg. has
shown that the principles of construc
tion followed by the great cathedral
builders of former times are identical
With those used by the builders of the
Egyptian pyramids and are based on
triangulation. The same simple geo
metrical figure underlies all these con
structions. More than this, Herr
Knauth traces the architectural prin
clple in the formation of crystals and
lays down this formula: "The laws of
proportion in mediaeval architecture
are the geometrical laws of crystalli
It Comes From the Hindi Bangta.
Meaning a Thatched Hut.
The word bungalow is an Anglo-In
dian version of the Hindi bangla,
which primarily means Bengali, or
of Bengal, and is also applied to a
thatched hut, says Country Life In
America. It may be worth while to
explain how this trivial and merely lo
cal name came to be fixed on the Eng
lishman's house in India.
Early residents there engaged in mil
itary, administrative or trading duties
lived a nomadic life for the greater
part of the year in tents. And since
there was nothing in the indigenous
buildings of Bengal suited to their re
quirements their first dwelling houses,
designed by themselves and imilt of
materials at site, were naturally plan
ned on the model of the Indian serv
ice tents to which they were accus
tomed—that is, a large and lofty room
surrounded by double walls of canvas
inclosing space between tliem, with
partitious at two or more corners for
bath or store rooms.
It is probably, indeed, that In the
beginning the tent itself was occasion
ally covered with the sun proof thatch
or bangla. The name and the thatch
ware all that were taken, and now
the origin of the name is forgotten
even by most Indians, who accept the
resonant, trisyllabic bungalow as the
Englishman's own name for his own
peculiar house.
