MSM RECSOIZED THE VOICE
And Prrn Remark Made, Also Knew

Coefldential friends of Louis B.

that eminent Republican: A state
convention at Columbuas had just ad
journed and the Cuyahoga county
delegates were all back home when
somebody suggested a friendly game
at poker. The game was going along
right merrily at three a. m.
At that hour an officious attendant
aliled up Mr. Shields' residence, which
happened to be almost next door.
"This is long distance," said the
servant with no warrant of authority
whatever. "We are all here in Co
lumbus and can't get home until morn
"That's all right," came back the
reply, "but It that voice I hear in the
apartment house next door saying
'that's good' isn't MIr. Shields' then I
can't recognize a voice when I hear It
And that is the end of the story, for
the voice saying "that's good" was
indeed that of MIr. Shields. and it was
so near home, so the narrator relates,
that there was no use in offering a

Seal With Awful Voice Keeps Zoo
Attendants Awake at Night.
Mediterranean Monk Brought From
Madeira Gives Keepers Little
Chance for Rest by Dread
Noise He Makes.
London.--The worst thing, accord
ing to their own estimate, that ever
happened to the keepers at the Zoo
is Hedger's voice.
Bodger-be is called Daleful Dodger
now-is the Mediterranean monk seal

the Zoological gardens.
On the voyage over be kept the
whole ship awake ever night by the
dreadful noise he made. This forced
the passengers and crew to conclude
that he was excessively seasick.
Now the keepers of the zoo know to
their cost that those sounds are Bod
ger's natural tones. As he has begun
to feed and is in excellent health,
they realize that they may have to
live many years with his voice, and
they describe the prospect as vile.
"It may not seem a serious matter
to others," his keeper said, "but it is
very serious to me.
"I have grown used to the howling
of wolves, and when I slept near the
jackals they did not keep me awake.
After a time the lions' roars were a
lullaby, the eagle and the screech owl
ceased to worry me.

Outside Dodger's cage was found a
crowd of men, women and children.
Lying on the cement was Dodger,
and every ten seconds or so he opened
his mouth wide. From its dark depths
he sent forth a dreadful sound.
As a lieutenant put it, it was exact
ly like the noise one would expect
from an as. trying to bray whilst tor'
tured by seasickness.
"You watch," said the keeper. "The

Georgia is throwing away enough teed

It Is a well-known fact that while
the farmers of Georgia pull the leaves
from the corn for fodder, leaving the
stalk standing to support the ear of
corn, through the northern and west

stalk dowa. shock it up and then to
shred it for cattle feed after the corn
has been taken of.
Governor Brown is of the opinlon
that the method now in yogae In this
state of palling fodder is an exceed

come the introduction of shredding
mMcbes as a saving to farmers of
millions of dollars annually.
