miliarly culled by his many loeal

Auditor Cue, his old .-hi" partner, this
morning and made Hi" side:; of ;i smail
audience ache hy his merry tales and
quietly related experiences. After he
had left to catch an ea.-.t bound train,
one of his old friends remarked, " lie's

Mr. (lillilan is still on the platform
Mid a "head-liner" wherever lie ap

the Success mae.a.iuc. Ten cents a

lilao stated and then ar.ked a local
IifiwHpaner man if he reinemherei a: -'.endlnn
one of his lectures given in a
.small town in northern Michigan. The
newspaper man rememhered the inci
dent distinctly- he acted as cheer
leader, self-appointed, and had very
poor support. "That audience was
positively the worst I ever went up
aKflin.-t." said "Sfrici; ' reflectively.
"They made about as much noise its
mjiiio one pounding a fur hat with a
lamb's' tail. My friend here was the
only. one who got boisterous and I had
fo r(hiind hint that unless he cut out
the racket he would rpteer himself
with the community."
How Thf7 Mar Be Sncofint nlly Cnltl
vntvd In Tuba.
Tlur cultivation of aquatic; plants in
tubs makes it possible for any one to
trj- his skill with them. Of course he
peed not expect to bo able to grow the
rarer sorts of uyinphnea, but lq? can
succeed with many beautiful varieties
of water lily and other plants of that
class. A half barrel is not very at
tractive in itself, but Its lack of beauty
may be concealed by the plants, or it
may be sunk its depth in the earth.
Yhen it contains a tine specimen of
some aquatic plant we will forget all
about Its lack of grace. When prepar
ing for these plants put in rich black
mud from the bed of streams or muck
from swamps, to the depth of a foot;
then plant your roots in it and fill with
water. Add enough water from time
to time to make up for that which is
lost by evaporation and give the tub a
sunny place in the yard or garden. If
you want to grow more plants than one
tub will accommodate, it is a good
plan to take four, five, sis, or as many
ns you may decide on, and have them
sunk in the ground close together, so
that the general effect will be some
thing like that which a large tank
would give. A better plan, though a
more expensive one to carry out, is
to have a tank constructed of heavy
planks. These should be securely bolt
ed at the ends and the joints made
tight by white lead in the grooves.
The word "ironmonger"' has as curi
ous an origin as any other word in the
English language. It means literally
an eater of iron and came to its present
use in this way. There was once a law
that forbade buying fish to sell again,
and the fish hawkers, who ptill carried
on their trade In spite of this law, were
facetiously termed fish eaters or fish
mongers, for, to evade the law, their
large purchases of fish were said to be
for their own eonsumptiou. Gradually
the term monger was applied to other
trades, as cheesemonger, nutil at hit
jt camo to mean any middle man, a
distinguished from a manufacturer, and
so was applied to the dealer in hard
ware. London Graphic.

A manufacturer in the north of Eng

DAY DODGERS GET

The Day Dodgers ' Karlhamite,
which came out Saturday, is one of the
most interesting and pleasing copies
that has been published this year.
There are two good short stories, an
amusing report on the sanitary condi
tions existing in and about Karlham
and several short amusing sketches,
ballads and puns. The jokes, for
once, are good. One short poem sent
in hy Kdwin L. Doan of Westfield.

PULLED HIS RAZOR
As Result Charles Emory
Charles Emory, colored, is under ar
rest charged with assault and battery
on his wife. After he had administ
ered to her a good beating his brother-in-law
took it hand in the domestic
trouble. Emory pulled his razor on
brother-in-law, who promptly took to
the clear. The case? will be given a
hearing tomorrow morning in the city

Two ceremonies in Burma mark when
childhood stops and manhood or wom
anhood begins. The boys have their
thighs tattooed and the girls their ears
bored. The boring of a girl's ears is
commenced with a needle, and the
puncture is gradually increased until
the tip of the finger can be introduced.
The enlarging process is the one car
ried out in the Polynesian Islands,
where a native can carry a good sized
knife hanging in the lobe of his ear.
The ugliest mutilation is that of the
Eskimo, who punches a hole in his
cheek end puts a bone stud into it. The
Burmese boy suffers grent pain from
the elaborate ornamentation of his legs,
which are decorated In blue and red

By turning the handle of an organ
the Italian in England obtains nearly
eight times as much per week as be

as much as the English farm laborer
and nearly three times the pay of the
policeman who moves him on when
requested. Thousands of skilled ar
tisans who have serve! apprenticeship
as carpenters, painters and joiners got
only half the organ grinder's pay. for
