THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUX-TELEGRA3I, FRIDAY, OCTOBER SO, 1908.
PAGETHREE, STIRRED BY CHARGE Burns Starts Something When He Says American Un , employed Drink Less. "IT IS UNTRUE" CALL MANY. London, Oct. 30. John Burns, the abor leader and president of the local fcovernment board, drew down upon (lis head the anathemas of the'Labor Ites when, in the house of commons, he Intimated that the main disadvantages bnder which the British unemployed labored as compared to the unemploy ed in America was that the Britons flrank more than their transatlantic ton feres. Mr. Burns repudiated the suggestion ihat the difference lay in the fact that he American unemployed had money n their pockets. "I have been in Imerlca three times," he said, "and he only difference I saw between the Unemployed in America and those of this country was that the former, for to. short time after losing work, were better dressed. Many of them do not Prink so much as do many British un employed workmen, but the workmen Eif this country have an advantage in he number of days they are idle." Loud cries of "It is untrue. It is a shameful comparison:" greeted Mr. turns' a statement. MAGIC GLASS. (A Curious Mirror That May Be Made Transparent. One of the most curious inventions tof this age is what is called, platinized glass. A piece of glass is coated with an exceedingly thin layer of a liquid Charged with plntlnum and then raised to a red heat. The platinum becomes united to the glass in suh a way as to form an odd kind of mirror. The glass has not really lost its transparency, and yet if one places It against a wall and looks at It he sees his image ns in an ordinary looking glass. But when light is allowed to come through the glass from the other aide, as when it is p' .3 in a window, St appears perfectly transparent, like ordinary glass. By constructing a window of plati nized glass one could stand close be hind the panes In an unilluminated room and behold clearly everything going on outside, while passersby look ing at the window would behold only a Uie mirror or set of mirrors in which their own figures would be reflected, while the person inside remained in Visible. In France various tricks have been contrived with the aid of this glass. In one a person, seeing what appears to be an ordinary mirror, approaches It to gaze upon himself. A sudden change in the mechanism sends light through the glass from the back, whereupon it Instantly becomes trans parent, and the startled spectator finds , himself confronted by some grotesque figure that had been hidden behind the magic glass. New York Tribune. SPEED LAWS OF 1816. Coaches Going Nine Miles an Hour . Frightened the English. The outcry daily growing louder In England against the excessive speed of motor cars lends Interest to the fol lowing passage from the Annual Regis ter for 1816: A new coach was started in the spring to run to Brighton, a distance ef fifty two miles, in six hours. This, however, became alarming, par ticularly in the populous neighborhood of New ington. through which it passed, and tho parish officers there caused in formation to be laid against the driv ers for driving furiously on the public road so ns to endanger the lives of his majesty's subjects. The result of this Is to be read In Mansard's "Parliamentary Reports," June 30, 1816. . The attorney general moved for leave to bring in a bill the object of which was the protection of the lives and limbs of bis majesty's subjects by correcting the enormous abuses of stagecoach -drivers. Within these few days it would be hardly credible what a number of applications be had re ceived on this subject Some accounts were enough to freeze one with horror. A gentleman of ve racity had informed him that on Tues day. May 21, at 530, the Trafalgar and Regulator coaches set off from Manchester and got to Liverpool at 6:20, doing this journay In two hours fifty minutes, at the rate of twelve miles an hour. New York Sun. Fiji Islanders' Sugar Cane Dane. A very curious and exceedingly cler cr dance may be witnessed in Fiji call ed by the natives "the sugar cane tneke," or sugar cane dance. - It rep resents the growth of the sugar cane. In the first figure the dancers squat love on the ground, shake their heads, shut their eyes and murmur slowly and softly an unintelligible sentence. Gradually they all stand up together, trrowing taller and taller, and as they "grow" they wave their arms and tremble all over from ankle to head, like the tall, tasseled cane waving In the wind, and still they keep on chant ing londer and louder. The last fig ure represents a series of combats meant to symbolize the exactions of the chiefs, who compel the "kaisi," willing and unwilling, to come and cut helr crops. London Standard.

THE WHEATFIELD. ' Where the Billowing Golden Waves Stretch From Sky to Sky. Take a look at the wheatfield that has been brought up to perfection as it stands, yellow as gold, with the sheen of the sea, billowing from sky line to sky line like an ocean of gold, where the wind touches the rippling wave crests with the tread of invisi ble feet. In California, in Oregon, in Washington, in Dakota, in the Cana dian northwest, you may ride all day on horseback through the wheatfields without a break in the flow of yellow heavy headed grain no fence lines, no meadow lands, no shade trees, no knobs and knolls and hills and hol lows of grass or black earth through. From dawn till dark, from sunrise, in a burst of fiery splendor over the prairie horizon, to sundown, when the crimson thing hangs like a huge shield of blood in the haze of a heat twi light, you may ride with naught to break the view between you and the horizon but wheat wheat. It is like the gold fields. It goes to your head. You grow dizzy looking at it. You rub your eyes. Is it a mirage? The bil lowing yellow waves seem to be breasting the very sky. You look up. The sky Is there all right with the black mote of a meadow lark sailing the azure sea. He drops liquid notes of sheer mellow music down on your head, does that meadow lark, and that gives you back your perspective, your sense of amazing reality. You are literally, absolutely, really, In the midst of a sen of living gold. It is you and not the lark that is the mote. Yon begin to feel as if your special mote might be a beam that would get lost in Infinity if you stayed there long, and so you ride on and on, and some more on, ffnd by and by come out of the league long, fenceless fields with an xdor In your nostrils that isn't ex actly like incense it's too fugitive, too fine, too sublimal of earth. It is aro matic, a sort of attar of roses, the im prisoned fragrance of the billions upon billions of wheat flowers shut up in the glumes of the heavy headed grain there. And that's the odur of the wheat, Agnes C. Laut in Outing Mag azine. A girl named Gordon, working In a laundry at Ballymena, Belfast, Ire land, was caught in a machine by the hair and completely scalped. A doc tor ordered her removal to a hospital. The scalp was also taken there, and Dr. Davidson succeeded in sewing it on. The girl is alive and making good progress. Municipal pawnshops have been opened in Pekin for the relief of. the residents who have been heretofore tRe victims of extortionate private establishments. The city charges are 15 per cent, while they have been pay ing 50. "A n K u f Heat in Oren Before Sernnf l r-r U if Recent York Gem Robbery Tho Way a Mandarin's Wise Wife De cided a Baby Case. Two women came before a mandarin In China, each of them protesting that she was the mother of a little child they had brought with them. They were so eager and so positive that the mandarin was sorely puzzled. He re tired to consult with his wife, who was a wise and clever woman, whose opinion was held in great repute in the neighborhood. She requested five minutes in which to deliberate. At the end of that time she spoke, "Let the servants catch me a large fish in the river, and let it be brought here alive." This was done. "Bring me now the Infant," she said, "but leave the two women In the outer chamber." This was done too. Then the mandarin's wife caused the baby to be undressed and its clothes to be put on the fish. "Carry the creature outside now and throw it into the river in the sight of the two women," The servant obeyed her orders, flfliging the fish into the water, where it rolled about and strug gled, disgusted no doubt by the wrap pings in which it was swaddled. Without a moment's pause one of the women threw herself into the river with a shriek. She must . save her drowning child. "Without doubt she is the true mother," she declared, and the mandarin's wife commanded that she should be rescued and the child given to her. And the mandarin nod ded his head and thought his wife the wisest woman in the Flowery King dom. Meanwhile the false woman crept away. She was found out in her Imposture, and the mandarian's wife forgot all about her in the occupation of donning the little baby in the best silk she could find In her wardrobe. Bystander. White and Red Wines. White and red wines owe their dif fexence to the fact that, while the for mer is permitted to ferment without the grape skirts, these are allowed to remain in the case of the latter. The rolor of the grapes makes no difference whatever to the color of the wine which they produce, for the juice of all grapes is as nearly as possible col orless. For instance, the grape which yields champagne is almost black In outward appearance. Over the Telephone. "Is this Dr. Smith V "Yes." "Well, this is Mrs. Jones.

Watson, Wednesday evening, eminated from their places of business. These men say no one with Marshall pictures.1 was in their saloons that evening. The information concerning the affair as printed in -this column was secured from persons who claimed to have seen it. Brookville may be small but she is alone ato the times. There is no town hall of sufficient size to accommodate the populace, while awaiting election returns. Dance hall promoters, how ever, have hit upon the scheme of an election ball. The returns will be re ceived and read to the dancers, while they trip the light fantastic. The voters of Wayne county next Tuesday will be called upon to select the man to fill the most important pos ition it lies within their power to elect, so far as local government is concerned the judge of the Wayne circuit court. There are two candi dates, Henry C. Fox, republican, and present judge, and John Dodson, dem ocrat, an attorney at Cambridge City. Fox is eminently qualified at a jurist, and Dodson has had absolutely no ex perience. He is a capable consulting attorney, but does not conduct nor argue any of the cases of any moment in which he is retained. He concedes the election of Judse Fox and has made no canvass of the county. Only yesterday he made the remark "what's the use?" when asked if he were cam paigning. Mr. Dodson's name was placed on the ticket against his own wishes, and after he had notified his party he did not care for the nomina tion. In order to secure the election of Judge Fox, it will be necessary to vote for him, so as not to prevent the office of judge to go by default to a man who does not solicit it nor care for it. In the effort to secure funds to pub lish a special edition of an Elwood newspaper as a "roorback," a paper was circulated atElwood. It happened the paper was given to a man who was for and not against the republican. . He "lost" the paper and the next heard or it was wnen an nawooa repuoncan newspaper exposed the whole foul scheme. The paper and the subscrib ers who had attached their signatures do not help the Marshall cause any. This is the extent of the list when it was "lost" and "found" again: "We. the undersigned, have sub scribed the amount opposite our names for the purpose of defraying the ex penses of a special edition, to be issued on Friday, Oct. 30, 10O which will charge James E.

"Elwood, Ind., Oct. rr, lOoS." Settled the Sign. When .William M. Evarts was sec retary of state a new elevator man had been employed in the department who did not know Mr. Evarts by sight In his car was a conspicuous sign to the effect that by order of the secre tary of state smoking was prohibited. One day Mr. Evarts boarded the car in company with a famous senator, the latter smoking a cigar. The new man promptly touched the smoker on the elbow and said, pointing at the no tice, "Can't you read that sign?" Mr. Evarts promptly tore down the of fending notice and, turning to the ele vator man, said: "What sign? I don't see any." The attendant, suspecting something, wisely held his peace, but he followed the pair out and asked the guard at the door who the chap with the large head was. The guard told him.
