S. G. Smith NATURE KEEPS SCALES EVEN Provides Parasites Seemingly for the Purpose of Destroying Other Parasites. The department of agriculture cultivates inseels that destroy any and all crop parasites. The polygno tus hiemalis can whip any Hessian flv ever born: the tysyphlebus trieiti is death on the green hug. The green bug eats the other, which promptly lays its eggs inside its de vourer. The young eat their way to the open air. thus killing the green bug. To one lone lady hug is due the destruction of the San .Tose scale which did millions of dollars’ dam age to the fruit trees of California. When the pest had become a positive menace the department heard of a species of bug in North China which was fatal to the scale. A large number of the bugs were pro cured. but all were dead except onr when they reached this country. This one insect was taken to Washington and became a ward of the govern ment. She rewarded her keepers by laying about 5,000 eggs. In an in credibly short space of time she had a flourishing family of several bil lions and the reign of the scale was over.—Van Nordun’s Magazine. USE FOR EMPTY JAILS. According to a floating news item there are several nice rooms in the county jail at Appomattox. Va., and, owing to the scarcity of houses in the town, a family has moved into and will occupy them as a residence. Here is a suggestion for other coun ties where crime is falling off to such an extent that there are at all times a few vacant cells. By making a few alterations they could be turned into comfortable living rooms, and un doubtedly some one could be found who would be glad to secure them at a reasonable rental. If the world is really growing better, and crime is to be abolished, we may as well pre pare to see our jails and |>eniten tiaries turned into comfortable apart ment houses with all modern im provements and excellent janitor service. SPENDING IT IN NEW YORK. Upton Sinclair, the noted young novelist, said the other day of a spendthrift poet: “He is a very witty fellow. Re cently he became quite destitute. In his garret in New York he lived for some weeks on bread and olive oil. His friends talked of taking up a collection to send him to Canada, where he had influential friends who would give him work. “I reported this project to the young Bohemian, but he scoffed at it. “ ‘Who would emigrate to Cana da,’ he said, ‘if he had the money to emigrate with?’ ” TO KEEP RAZORS IN SHAPE. For the purpose of preventing rusting of small instruments the Lancet recommends a mixture of equal parts of carbolic acid and olive oil, smeared over the surface of (he instruments. This is much used by medical officers in the navy, and is found to preserve the polish and brightness of the steel, however moist and warm the climate may be. For large instruments and tools, boiled linseed may be recommended. Wipe the metal with a cloth dipped in the oil, and let it dry. WANTS LESS WORK. “How's vour husband doing?” said the pale woman. “'Bout the same,” answered the thin woman. “Hasn't he got any regular work yet ?” “Yes. He said he felt the need of some steady occupation. So he thought he’d make it his business to wind the clock.' “Did lie stick to it ?” “For a while. But now he's kick ing for an eight-day clock.” HEAD AND FOOT. “Miss (lidday is a splendid dancer ; so light on her feel." remarked Mr. Waix •'*"* “Think so?" replied Miss Chellus. “Oh, ves. light in the extreme.” “You mean light in the extremes, don’t you ?” AT THE CONCERT.

One of the laborers who lived in a board ing car, undertook to rid his bunk of bed bugs by soaking it in gaso line. There was a fire in the stove and the flames commingled with the fume'-'. of the evaporating gaso line with the usual result. The explosion blew out , of the car a man who was sitting in the door and he was followed the next sec ond by the other man, whose clothes were blazing. He was se verely burned and was sent to a Eureka Springs hospital The re port says that the car was totally destroyed by the fire, but does not state whether any of the bugs escaped. | Subscribe for the daily.

DARING GOWN STIRS SOCIETY Little Rock, Nov. 14.—Little Rock has been considerably stirred the past few days over the publica tion of an article in which the gown of a young society lady of the city was minutely described. The young lady is stated to have appeared at one of the leading so cial functions of the week, attmd in a dress of crepe d: ehene, under which she wore but the usual cor > sage and pink tights. The cling i ing effects of the dress was won jderful, and gave it an ultra fash ionable effect which sidetracked the sheath skirt. Those who at tended the fashionable affair in question discussed the dress freely the next day, as it had been the chief attraction of the entertain ment. There will be another fash ionable affair Monday night, given by the same set, but it is doubtful if the gown will again appear in public, though its wearer is su_eto be found among the dancers. .
