All the bugs would like to hear anything that listens like an echo from a base ball park and even a speck of dust off the diamond in the left, optic would not be wiped out Have you noticed this season how little attention the metropolitan dail ies are paying to the few race meets? Is this a reflection of public senti ment? The ex-college player" has not been so prominent in base ball this season as for some years past. Is this a blow at the coaches of the country or an Indication of improved scholarship. Wonder if those Earlham football players, who are selling aluminum cooking utensils this vacation will try any "ringer" tactics to prove the genuiness of their wares.

All through the continent of Africa the natives have a very perfect system of signaling with drums, by which means they rap out messages from vil lage to village, and It Is quite wonder ful how swiftly and how far they are able to spread news. The drumming is always done at night, when sound travels farther, and as one lies awake on a still, clear night the ear Is often gently assailed by the low, musical roll from a drum in the village near, and one waits with pleasant expectancy till the answering echo comes, muffled by distance, from a village sometimes two miles away.

MEMBERS OF CHURCHES WILL DON QUAKER GARB OF OLDEN DAYS OTHER CHURCHES ALSO LAYING THEIR PLANS. The Friends' churches of the city, according to reports made to Secretary Humpe of the Wayne county Sunday school association, will unite and have one big float in the great Sunday school parade to be given August 22 on the occasion of the rally services. and they expect to out do all the other Sunday schools in the city or county so far as the beauty of the float is concerned. There will be also three other floats representing the Friends in the parade. The Quakers have the most novel plan of any of the Sunday schools yet heard from. The promi nent members of the East Main street the South Eighth street and the North A Btreet churches will unite In their efforts to make a good show. On a large float which will represent the united interests of all Friend3 hcurches of this city, will be many members of the religious society who reside in the city. It is probable they will be dressed In the old Quaker garb of the days of George Fox. The entire plan will be given further considera tion at a meeting of the representa tives of three churches this week. The St. Paul's German Lutheran church will not however, be outdone by the efforts of other churches. It is claimed that this church will have be tween six and ten large floats in their part of the procession. There will be a float to represent each department. Secretary Humpe received word this morning from the Trinity Lutheran church that it will enter the parade with several floflats and have a large marching brigade to help make the rally a success. This church Is not affiliated with the Wayne county Sunday school association, and the as sociation will probably give this church a vote of thanks for its efforts in furthering the success of rally day.

In the streets French traffic all goes to the right; London coachmen drive always to the left. Parisians live to gether in large houses like barracks; Londoners have one family In a house. The Londoner has a latchkey, the Frenchman a concierge. Paris has its cafes, London Its clubs. Parisian beds are up In an alcove In the wall; Londoners sleep in the mid dle of the room. Londoners take three or four meals a day, Parisians two. Paris dines, London eats. Paris loaves are long, London loaves are square. Paris drinks wine, London beer. Paris takes coffee, London tea. Frenchmen while dining talk to their neighbor and enjoy each other's so ciety; Britons sit alone at table and don't say much, but enjoy their food. London workmen work In their ordi nary clothes,- call each other "mate." smoke clay pipes and punch each oth er's heads occasionally; Parisian work men do their business In blouses, call their friends "citizen" or "sir," smoke cigarettes, take their hats off to each other and do their fighting with their feet London Tit-Bits. Defective Education. An old darky in Alabama called across the fence to his neighbor's son. who is a student at the Atlanta uni versity, says a writer In the Philadel phia Ledger.

The wedge shaped section between the tracks of the steam railway company and the lake has been valued at $500 in pro ceedings between the city and railroad company. Several months ago the railroad company, through Its superintendent. Nettleton Neff, proposed the purchase of this plot of ground which extends from a point to a width of fifty feet and a length of 470 feet. It was agreed the land could not be sold but friendly condemnation proceedings were to be entered into and the railroad company acquire the land in consideration of $500. The company demurred to the price at first, but later Supt Neff ex pressed his approval. The matter was referred to council by the board and council approved it. This marked the end, however, as the railroad company has since failed to materialize' in Its offer and the city retains the plot. It was stipulated (in the preliminary ar rangements that the company would have no right to build retaining walls or make use of any tracks that might be Installed for car storage purposes unless the agreement first was abro gated by mutual agreement. The company went so far as to agree to Bod the embankment and plant shrub bery in order to improve the appear ances of the slope. INJUNCTION POSSIBLE. Shown One Property Owner, M. C. Benham is Injured. After a long search it is believed the remonstrators against the use of Twenty-third street as 'a location for lnterurban tracks, have found a way whereby a valid claim for Injunction proceedings may be presented. It was stated by Dr. M. C. Benham, this morning, he purchased the ground whereon is located his home. Glen View, with the distinct understanding the ground surrounding him always was to be used for the purpose of a public park and no other. The Twenty-third street route will pass directly in the rear of Dr. Benham's premises and It is believed, opponents of the Twenty-third street line say he could show specific claim of Injury, in case a car line is put In operation along the proposed route. If Injunction proceedings are insti tuted it is probable the name of Dr. Benham will be used as plaintiff, ow ing to the reasons stated. It has been claimed by local attorneys that injunction proceedings could not be Instituted with a chance of being held valid, because the law requires the situation of specific injury to prop erty. It has been held that this could not he shown owing to the fact the park is the property of the city of Richmond in fee simple, which makes it the property of one citizen as much as that of another. Since the discov ery of the conditions governing the deal by which Dr. Benham secured his property have become known, it is believed this situation will be taken advantage of. When Judge Fox of the Wayne cir cuit court sustained the demurrer In the quo warranto proceedings against the Terre Haute, Indianapolis & East ern. Traction company, he said the wrong method of procedure had been adopted. "What would have been the right way to proceed?" he was asked. He answered: "By Injunction." When told, then,, he might have op portunity' to hear Injunction proceed ings and there is a difference of legal opinion, he said: "Well then forget that I ever said anything about it I haven't Investigated the matter." Since then the judge has made a personal investigation of the laws and finds a diversity of opinion. Eczema Use Blanchard's Eczema Lotion Prof. J. Blanchard.
