TRIED TO END HIS LIFE.
J. J. Kendlen of Worthington,
Minn.,tried to commit suicide early
Saturday morning by leaping over
the wall below the, union depot
He had been robbed of a valuable
watch &nd chain while sleeping in a
Washington avenue saloon,and took
the matter so much to heart that he
wanted to end his life. Patrolman
Ford saw him just in time to save
him and sent him back to his hotel
in a hack. Kendlen is well-to-do,
and is ah old soldier and a promi
nent citizen-of his town. He was

Is it l^ler to sleep wiih the head
high or low I This la a question
which a manufacturer of bedolothcfl
apparently answered long ago by
announcing authoritatively that
no one in his senses would think of
lying down to sleep unless he had
a pillow and a bolster under his
head. Now, however, a French
scientist comes forward and says
that anyone who rests his head on
a pillow and bolster while he is
sleeping is slowly but surely com
mitting suicide,pays the Philadelphia
According to him, the only nat
ural position for a man an.' sleeps
iug is the horizontal ouj, and the
first thing to do in order to a- custom
one's self to it is to remove the
bolster. Within a few months, he
says, one will be able to sleep much
more calmly than ever before, and,
moreover, the general health will
be much improved.
This statement he insists, is not
made lightlv, but is the result of
The nejet step he says is to remove
the pillow, for not -until then will
the circulation of the blood be a&
free as it should be.
In futher explanation, he says that
the pillow and bolster keep the head
and neck at an abnormal angle and
that, consequently, the sleeper's
entire body remains during the
night in an uncomfortable position,
and one which impedes the free
course of the blood through the
vessels and organs.
A NEW GAME.
Th*s latest nbvelty in the way of
entertainment in the east is the
.geographical party At a recent
function of this description all the
guests were asked to come repres
enting by costume or decoration
"someplace on the map." When
all were assembled, time was called,
and every member of the company
provided with a piece of paper bear
ing numbers 1 to 48, the number
assembled, each paper in addition
being designated by one of the
numbers as the identity of its own
er. One hour was allowed for
guesses, each gueBs to be set against
the list number corresponding to
the number of the person whose
insignia was thought to be decipher
A strict enforcement of the rule of
"no assistance" was made, that the
contest might be perfectly fair. At
the end of the hour papers were
signed and all were collected, acom
mittee of two taking the count.
Prizes were awarded to the man
and woman making the greatest
number of correct guesses, and con
solation prizes for the least number.
A part of the fun was was to select
emblems that were miBlfiading.
One young man carried a round box
of soil with a large capital partly
imbedded in it. "F-in-land,' 'Finland,
was what he intended to represent,
but a number of guesses read it
"F-earth'' Firth. A slender glass
bottle half full of water in which
floated a holly berry was correctly
guessed Waterbury by some, but by
others was read Clearwater and
A large capital cut out ef white
paper was instantly guessed at a
first glance, and was down on every
paper as White sea it's correct read
ing was, however, 'Bearing C,'
Bering Sea. A card on which was
printed twenty four letten of the
alphabet meant. "R. E. gone.
Oregon. A yellowish A cut from
cardboard and pinned hialf way down
a lady's skirt was "Buff—A—low,'
Buafflo. Another young woman
confused the guesses with three
skeleton letters EiL worn as a
tiara around her hair. Everybody
promptly put it down an indicating
"Del-I-Wear" Delaware. Instead it
fend Delhi. The contest made much
merriment and is particularly suit
ed to a company of young and old
as ohildren fresh from geography
lessons are quite as apt as the elders,
if not more so, at correct guessing.

for the refusal to pay a money fine
for marring a desk. The implied
decision is to the effect that the
school board cannot suspend a child
for such a cause. The decision is a
surprise to a great many who labor
under the impression that the board
can suspend a pupil for any cause
but it would seem that their author
ity is a limited one after all, as lA
