Prough is the son of wealthy peo ple near Zanesville. Last May he married Miss Alta Walker of this city. Everything was flowers unti? he was forced to go to Keokuk, Iowa, by vir tue of the strict rules of the base ball association. His return was to the home of his parents and not until Tuesday did he remember that he had a wife. It was then that Constable Wells Shearer notified him by a warrant for arrest on the charge of wife deser tion. Prough and his father came here and fixed the matter so that the wife may secure a divorce and a lump of Papa Prough's money without anyone standing in her way while he is giv en his freedom to remain under the protecting wing of his parents. -r- Those who have used Black- burn's Castor-Oil-Pills should now ask for Blackburn's Casca- Royal-Pills.

Art Astonished King. King Louis of Bavaria was much annoyed on one occasion when the sol dier on guard at the palace gates neg lected to present arms. The truth was, the soldier did not know his maj esty by sight "Why don't you pre sent arms?" the latter asked angrily. "Don't you know to whom you are in debted for your dally bread?" The sentry glared angrily at the king, and. Imagining him to be the army baker, replied: "So you are the miserable son of a baker who furnishes the soldiers with bread, are you? Well, 1 should like to have you by yourself in some quiet pise. I'd spread your ungainly anatomy over three kingdoms! Fd make dousb of your TRY HOVEL SCHEME Little Girls Give a Play to Raise Funds to Rent A Tent. EFFORT IS APPRECIATED. In an effort to earn money to pay their expenses for a tent at the cnau tauqua, a number of little girls living in the east end of the city, and be tween the ages of 8 and 12, gave a lit tle four act play entitled "Cinderilla" at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Williams on East Main street last evening. The young people have been working hard on the play for the last three or four weeks and their success was realized last evening when about 30 or 4t of their friends attended the play. Miss Elizabeth Bailey, daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. William Bailey, was one of the stars of the cast with Laverne and Esther Jones coming in for their share of the honors. Alda McFerson, who took the part of Cin derilla, was also very good and de serves praise. Helen Bahey also de serves special mention. The girls had their stage arranged in a very artistic manner and lighted by electricity with all proper effects. The girls made their own costumes which were very appropriate. Between acts spe cial numbers were given by Helen and Elizabeth Bailey and Alda. McFerson. They will repeat the play this evening. The cast of characters is: Prince . Helen Bailey God Mother .'. Elizabeth Bailey Cinderilla Alda McFerson First Sister Laverne Jones Second Sister Esther Jones CHARGE OKRIETY John Schroeder Is Alleged to Have Cut Off Calf's Hoof. . THE CREATURE WAS HURT. John Schroeder, a farmer living southeast of the city, is under arrest on the charge of cruelty to animals. His case will be given a hearing in the city court tomorrow morning. Prosecutor Jessup states that about three weeks ago a two weeks' old calf belonging to Schroeder nearly sever ed its leg at the first joint on a halter rope. Schroeder, he says, cut the hoof off with a knife then placed axle grease over the wound and turned the little animal out in the field where it has since remained. "Instead of killing the calf as he should have done this man carelessly ministered to its wound then turned it out in a field to fatten so that he could sell it," stated the prosecutor. vIbrat" ionT Dfini In Sand Formed by the Pro duction of Sonnds. Did. you ever bear that you can make drawings by sound, or, rather, that the sound vibrations will cause designs to be made with the proper implements at hand? Here is the way to do it: At a hardware store get a piece of sheet brass one-eighth of an inch thick and six inches square. The sheet should be perfectly flat, or if it is not it should be hammered so and the edges rounded off. In the center of the sheet cut a hole three-sixteenths of an inch in diameter. If the sheet has been hammered it must now be heated in a redhot stove and cooled slowly. Now cut a six inch piece from a broom handle and fix one end of it firmly in a block of wood. The other end you must round off and screw the plate of brass on it. If you draw a violin bow over the edge of the brass plate a tone will be sounded. Practice this until the tone is quite clear and strong. Now sprin kle some sand on the plnte, and the grains will dance about while the note is sounded, showing that the plate is In vibration. Now put your finger on the edge of the plate in the middle of one side. At the corner of the side at an angle of forty-five degrees draw the bow, and the sand will form In two lines at right angles, starting from your finger. This is because the plate now vibrates in parts, one part moving up, while the other moves down, and the lines be tween these parts have no motion. Therefore the saud settles in them. By drawing the bow at regular dis tances from the finger or by touching the plate in more than one place at a time while some one else draws the bow a variety of sand figures will be made. If you will mix a little lycopodfum powder with the sand when the plate vibrates it will form curious little heaps and whirlpools, which add to the moving effect of the designs. Instead of a brass plate you may use one of glass six or eight inches square, and its sharp edges you may smooth down with a file moistened with tur pentine. To prove to yourself that the plate is still or almost so at the sand lines make a cardboard cone about ten inch es long, two and a half inches in diam eter at its larger end and small enough at the other end to fit into a rubber tube, which, should be about two feet long. Let one person cause the plate to vibrate, while another holds the large end of the cone over the plate, applying the rubber tube to the ear. When the middle of the cone is exact ly over a sand line scarcely any tone at all will be heard, and the ueirer the cone is to the sand line the weaker the sound will be, while it will be clear and strong at the farthest points from the sand lines, proving that the sand falls into lines, and as the parts of the plate move in opposite directions on each side of the and lines their effect is equalized or destroyed, causing no sound In the air In the cone balance when directly over those lines. Cleve lasA Plain Dealer. EIGHT IN FIGHT WITHOUT POLICE Jim Maher , Told to Defend Himself Against John Kelly. MUSTN'T THROW BRICKS. BUT MAY USE THEIR FISTS AND FIGHT FAIR, AND BE ASSURED THAT NO ARRESTS WILL BE MADE. "Jim, I give you fair warning, at 10 o'clock this morning. I am going to file an affidavit against you, charg ing you with being a coward." laugh ed Prosecutor Jessup this morning when Jim Maher appeared at police headquarters and asked the prosecu tor to place John Kelly under bond to keep t'.ie peace. Maher has been employed by Kelly as a stock buyer. Jim stated that Kelly got after him last night and to avoid hostilities he took to his heels. "However I don't intend to have that man Kelly run me off Main street again. I've got as much right, to walk on Main street as he has," stated Maher. "Why didn't you fight him?" asked the prosecutor. "Not for mine. If I had you would have sent" nie to jail and, Mr. Jessup, I would rather be a free coward, than a jail bird," replied Maher, while ev erybody roared with laughter. "If Kelly abuses you again and you whip him fair and square you can rest assured I will not prosecute you. John Kelly needs a good whipping," said Mr. Jessup. "I may use a brick on him. There are plenty of them handy on Main street now." Maher replied. "No, bricks don't go. You are as big as Kelly Is and you can whip him with fists," the prosecutor informed him. After being assured again that he would not be sent to the jail he dreads so much, if he whipped Kelly in a fair fight, Maher left headquart ers with the remark that he is "ready to work if Kelly tried to start any thing with him again." GREAT FAD IS THIS i - - Marion Business Men Walk About Streets Partly Undressed. THEY TRY BATHING SUITS. Marion, Ind., Aug. 19. Dr. G. L.

AND A PATIENT. It is rapidly becoming a generally recognized fact that the care of the feet is a matter to which the greater importance must be attached. The neglect of the feet has In many la stances resulted fatally. Neglected Corns. Bunions, Ingrowing Nails and other unwelcome blemishes to both the health and beauty of the feet, are things which none who are aware of the above facts should tolerate In themselves or their dear ones. Of course, in the important field of ct entific chiropody there are those who excel and who have attained a cer tain prominence owing to long exper ience and thorough application. In this connection we may say that Prof. J. A. Smith who, indeed, needs no In troduction to many of our readers, has attained a leading position In the pro fession, having graduated from Dr. Kahler's School of Surgical Chiropo dy in New York, and made a close study of It for the past 15 years. None should fall to visit his parlor and witness the art of demonstrating practical chiropody in the most scien tifically, progressive manner, without any possible ill results.' The Prof, refers to the highest business and so ciety authorities, who have bestowed much praise' upon his successful ef forts in the profession. We have been prompted to refer to the matter in the interest of progress and as an act that will unquestionably ' rebound to the benefit of our readers.
