enough In praise of Mayr's Wonder

great benefit from Mayr's Wonder

Fair Traveler's Emotion at 8eelng Af
fecting Parting Was in Large
Part Uncalled For.
The temperamental difference be
tween a restrained and an emotional
race occasionally brings about kindred
effects through accident. A lady, wait
ing for a belated train, witnessed a
most affecting parting betweea an{
aged father and his son, both Italians.
The old man seemed in a frenzy of
woe. He moaned, raved, lifted hie
clenched hands teward heaven and
shook them despairingly.
"Poor, poor souls!" she exclaimed,
compassionately. 'The young man go
ing away to seek his fortune and the
old man left behind. I suppose be
fears they mar never meet again. A
common tragedy, but it grips one'a
very heart"
"Cheer up!" briskly advised her
companion, who understood Italian.
"The young chap Is only going to the
next town to visit his married sister
and the venerable (rid person la wor
ried because he loaned him his sea
son ticket and wishes now be hadn't
promised to do so. He says be knows
the boy will lose it, but, anyway, if
he does, he'll break every bone in his
body when he gets home. That's all."
That on Leipzig Battlefield, Though
Higher, Less Costly Than Me
morial to Italian King.
Leipzig possesses a monument
which rises only a few Inches short
of 300 feet "The Battle oi the Na
tions" monument stands In the middle
of the plain where Blucher routed Na
poleon's army. One million cubic
meters of earth were displaced to
make room for its base. It is sur
rounded by an enclosure a quarter of
a mile wide and nearly half a mile
Next to the Pyramids It Is the high

the costliest This distinction belongs
to the national memorial to Victor Em
manuel II. erected on the Capltollne
hill In Rome at a cost of $20,000,000.
It took 31 years to complete this huge
pile of marble steps, covered with
statues, bas-reliefs, and mosaics. Sac
conl, the architect who designed it
-died long before the work was finish
ed, but he left models complete In
every detail, and bte original, plans
were never tampered with.
Colors 8ave the Eggs.
We have heard a great deal about
protective coloration In nature,, and
when' we consider the advantages
which accrue to protectively colored
eggs we may wonder, why some eggs
have remained pure white through the
ages, why others are of the most con
spicuous greenish blue, and why still
others stand out by their spotted or
speckled patterns, says the American
Forestry Magazine. White eggs are
for the most part laid by hole-nesting
species of birds like the owls and
woodpeckers, and since the eggs are
well hidden in their dark cavities It
has not been necessary for them to
develop protective coloration. The
bright greenish blue eggs of most of
the thrushes, for example, must ba\
hidden in nests which are concealed
In dense vegetation and the speckled
eggs of the ground nesting sparrows
depend'for their safety upon the good
hiding of the grass-woven nest
Modern Casablanca.
A Are guard in the Shenandoah na
tional forest not so long ago found hlpi
self In a predicament similar to that
of Casablanca, although hls decislon'
was not so silly. Discovering that
there were three bears at the foot or
the lookout tower in which he was
stationed without arms of any kind, he
telephoned for permission to leave at
the first chance to get a gun. The
district ranger replied that the for
ests were dry, that a fire might start
anywhere at any tlmer and tha^ he
must stay where he was, hears or no

9 Of tJ*
The vote on governor is close in
North Dakota, the latest informa
tion from the state Independent
headquarters is that O'Connor was
leading with 8,225 votes and about
600 precincts to hear from. These
precincts were in the rural districts
of the state and it was expected
would favor Frazier in a greater per
centage than O'Connor. Frazier
gained in some of the cities and lost
in country precincts. v.Ttae league
claims Frazier is elected, but the
majority is not given.
O'Connor's lead in the first con
gressional district .was about 11,500.
He lost in the second district by
About 4,000. The returns from the
third district are not yet received
sufficiently to place an estimate on
the result, but probabilities are that
the contest for governor w.iU he de
cided by less than 6,000 majprity
either way. In 1,010 precincts out
of 2,091 in the state the vote was:
O'Connor, 72,019 Frazier, .58,267.
These precincts include the ilarger
cities and towns. The .total vote will
be less than 200,090.
The initiated* laws a re running
ahead of O'Connor and it is believed
will cany.
The Independents are confluent of
having control of the house ot repre
sentatives. The league has lost
members of the house in counties
where they elected memhem two
years ago. Tiie Independents have
elected candidates in Morton, Eddy
and Foster conn ties, two Independ
ent senators in Grand Forks and
three house members. The Inde
pendent senator in Barnes county,
Frank Ployhar, was re-elected. In
Richland all Independent candidates
for the legislature were elected and
Independent senator was elected in
Golden Valley, Slope, Bowman and
Billings, and two house members in
that district. In-Stark, a senator
and three house members Stutsman,
senator and four house members
were elected. In Minot a senator and
four house members appear to be
certain. In Burleigh county a sen
ator and three house members were
elected. Ransom xounty, in the Red
River valley, was thb only league
county which retained its league
Reports on the election of other
state officers were too incomplete at
time of going to press to obtain re
sults. Miss Nielson was running
ahead of Miss Johnson and ahead of
O'Connor. Her election, however, is
not certain.
The woman's vote is generally
double in the cities that of the men,
but not in the cquntry precincts.
Dr. Ladd was elected to the United
States senate.
Congressman John Baer was de
feated in the first district by Burt
ness, who had a lead of about 6,000.
George Toung is probably elected
in the second district.
J. H. Sinclair,'.leaguer, won for
congress in the fourth district.
County Commissioners' Rase.
In the race for Stutsman county
commissioners, G, M. Anderson, in
the fourth district, was elected by
a^put 204 majority over C. W. Win
gire, and in the second district Will
Dennison was elected by a substan
tial majority.
In Minnesota.
In 1,130 out of 3,220 precincts,
Preus, republican, had 189,145
Shipstead, Nonpartisan league, 116,
454, and Hodgson, democrat, 37,
119. Returns indicated that Preus
would be elected.- The congressmen
In that state showed that all the pres
ent incumbents who were candidates
were in the lead,'hut the vote was
not- known sufficiently to determine.

8eems to Knoyv the Law of Gravita
tion and Exhibits Intelligence
in Its Actiona.
A crab that knows the laws of
gravitation, climbs trees and picks
coconuts, is described by Frederick
O'Brien in bis book, "White Shadows
In the South Seas." Relating some of
the strange things he saw while -on
the Marquesas islands, he says:
"These crabs are more than two feet
in length, and stalk about with their
bodies a foot from the ground, sup
ported by,two central legs. They tiv®
in deep burrows in {he coconut groves,
which they fill with husks, so that the
natives often rob them to procure a
quick supply of fuel.
"When darkness descends, and all
Is quiet the rQbber crab ascends the
tree by gripping the hark with his
claws. He will go up until he reaches
the nuts, if it be a hundred feet. With
his powerful nippers he severs the
stem, choosing always a nut that is
big and ripe. Descending the palm he
tears off the husk. He tears it fiber by
fiber, and always from that end under
which the three eye-holds' are situ
ated. With these exposed he begins
hammering on one of them until he
has enlarged the opening so thnt 'he
can Insert the sharp point of one of
his claws into It By turning his claw
backward and forward he scoops out
the meat and regales himself luxuri
And Hie Keen 8ehse of Humor Some
timea Outweighs His Scruples,
According to Traveler.
It Is aaid that the Arab has a sense
of humor. I had a small experience
with that myself. It was In iBabylon,
and we were buying souvenirs from
the women and children.
Major Wright, the officer in charge
of the party, had Just presented me
with a small stone horse, the crcam of
the objects. I put it in my bqg and be
gan to negotiate for an inscribed stone
with the little boy who bad sold it
While some of the women were besieg
ing me this child began to negotiate
with a Y. M. C. A. man for this same
stone. When the Y man found that I
had been bargaining for it he proposed
to give way to me.
Meantime, while we were both pro-.
testing and trying each to give way,
this young Arab stole the horse from
my bag and began to sell it to the Y
man, who snapped It up at once. The
youngster roared with laughter, look
ing at me th^ while. He knew well
enough that I wouldn't give him away
'after the Y man had yielded to me,
and he enjoyed the joke so much that
he had to share it with me, the victim.
fHard Substance la Needed to With
stand the Constant Friction Which
Weara Away Moving Parts.
The principal reason for the deteri
oration, of any piece of machinery is
because* the constant friction wears
away the moving parts and Interferes
with the regularity of the mechanism.
A watch, being a machine in which
absolute uniformity of speed is essen
tial, It Is necessary to reduce this
friction to a.minimum—either thspugh
constant oiling, the use of ball bear
ings or some very bard material which
will withstand the wear and tear of
constant friction. The first two of
these methods are not feasible in se
small a pieCe of machinery as a
watch, so certain very hard Jewels are
placed at' various points to counteract
the rubbing caused by the moving
Watches are generally equipped
with 7, 15, 17, 18, 21 or 23 Jew
els, the 15 and 17-Jewel types being
.the most popular. Intrinsically, the
jewels used in the manufacture of
watches are of little value, but from
the standpoint of aervice and the spe
cific purpose which they serve they are
Invaluable. The jewels usually used
In watchmaking are the hardest of
thg precious stones, diamonds, sap
phires and rabies, and of these the
most generally used Is the sapphire,
which combines hardness with com
paratlvely reasonable price. v-"'?
