Prof. Lee Ault, superintendent of I the Cambridge City schools denies that the story in Saturday's issu that there had been trouble in the school system, with himself, Mrs. Isa idore Wilson and Dr. Boyd as princl- pals. Supt Ault says the story is a great Injustice to himself,' Dr. Boyd and Mrs. Wilson. He says there has been no serious difficulty between himself and Mr3. Wilson. However he admitted that he had called Mrs. Wilson's attention : last February to lack of school discip- I line. Prof. Ault further stated that there been serious difficulty be twen himself and Mrs. Wilson, he would not have wanted her to succeed herself when the teachers were ap tyfltated last spring. ur prof. Ault says that Dr. Boyd is still a member of the board by reason of I the fact that his successor Mr. Petro ihas not given his bond. He claims l that Dr. Boyd announced several months ago that his business was so 1 great he could not continue a member of the board and therefore would not accept another term. Cambridge Bonds Refused. Inquiry with relation to the bonds of the various school trustees of the 1 school corporations of Wayne county made Saturday afternoon at coun- i ty auditor's office showed that several of the trustees have not yet qualified. The bonds of the Cambridge City I school trustees were forwarded to the i auditor a few days ago but were not approved because a surety company instead of freehold sureties had been given. Last year a surety company signed the bonds of the trustees of the Cambridge City school board and , it was not known at the time that such a bond could not be legally given. This year, however, the requirement was made that the law would have to be followed closely and only free hold sureties would be acceptable. One of ficer, of the Spring Grove board of trustees had not filed his bond up to Saturday and none of the officers of the Richmond school board had filed theirs, although all were in readiness and were filed today.

Tucker of this city, has gotten into the race for the republican nomination for secretary of state, and his friends say he will make a determined fight for the place. The only other candi date mentioned thus for this nomina tion is Carl Riddick of Winamac, the present secretary of the republican state committee. And it is not even certain that Riddick will be a candi date, although the general understand ing is that he will be. The entrance of Tucker into the race for the nomination may mean a big fight along certain lines. Tucker ia the Indianapolis correspondent for the Cincinnati Enquirer and his political "dope" which he serves to that paper Sunday is read with a good deal of interest over the state. He has been an Indianapolis newspaper man for years. He was such an ardent sup porter of James B. Watson that many people believed that he was to have something good out of it probably would be appointed Watson's private secretary in case of his election as governor. Tucker knows an or tne politicians in the state, and it is be lieved that he has received some en couragement from them to enter the fight for secretary of state. Riddick was believed to have no op position for the nomination until Tuck er's name was posted, and it was thought that he would get the nomin ation unanimously in return for the hard work which he had done in the last two campaigns. He and Chair man Goodrich have worked together in politics for several years, and he knows the game all the way through There is a large element in the party which believes that Mr. Riddick is en titled to the nomination by reason of his faithful service and if he stays in the race it is altogether probable that it will be a hot one.

Battle Creek, Mich, GAMBLER'S LUCK. Th Lackey Who Changed Plao With His Former Master. Some years ago a remarkable occur rence transpired at Nice, which is very near to Monte Carlo. A uotorlous babltue of the casino, who had made his money principally there, bad set up an English vehicle, a pair of horses, "tiger" aud all. smd cut quite a swell driving in the neighborhood, says II lustrazione. One day he was riding in the environs of the town when his servant, sitting upon the raised box behind, who had been feeling some what uneasy at not receiving his wages for some time, seeing his roaster quite alone, ventured to ask him through the back window if he would not make it convenient to pay mm. The master was in a good humor and asked: "How much Is it. La Fleur?" "One hundred and twenty-five livres, may it please you; monsieur." "Very well; here it is," said the master, spreading the sum in paper currency upon the seat of the vehicle. "Now. La Fleur. have you a pack of cards with you?" "Certainly." answered the obsequious lackey. "I always carry them, mon sieur." producing the cards at once. "That is well. Now, I will be bank er, aud you shall play against me. I will take the front seat, the back one shall serve for our table, and you can look through this back window." The lackey assented to this, amused at his master's condescension. Lock was rarbr on the master's side, but both men became quite eager in the game, thinking of that, and that only. Little by little the footman's money went until all that was left of his wages was 5 livres. He began to feel minus when suddenly bis luck turned, and be won the whole sura back, with every sou his master had about him. Piqued at his loss, the master wa gered a horse, which the lackey won: then Its mate, next the harness and lastly the carriage itself. Luck ran all one way. and the servant La Fleur, won everything. The master took out his watch and put it down against a given sum. The cards were shuffled, and the lackey won. "I have nothing more. La Fleur. You have cleaned me out," said the half desperate gambler. The servant was in high spirits at his strange run of luck. "Here are a hundred livres. monsieur. I will stake them against your posi tion. If yon win they are yours. If you lose we change seats." "Agreed!" The cards were shuffled. La Fleur won. and the vehicle returned to Nice with its former master occupying the servant's box behind and La Fleur sit ting inside! Cigarette Smoker Finds no Jobs A waiting Him in Gay New York Lawrenceville, Pa., Aug. 9. That the heads of big enterprises are not tak ing men addicted to the cigarette and beer habits, is shown by the experience of a boy of seventeen years, living near Wellsboro, who went to visit friends in New York. He saw an ad vertisement from a big department store wanting a young man to fill a certain job, and he applied. He was there early and was shown into the presence of the head pf the firm. The following conversation took place: "What can I do for yon?" "I am here in response to an adver tisement. . "Do you smoke cigarettes?" "No. sir." "No, sir." Did you ever want to smoke cigar ettes?" "No. sir." t "Do you drink beer?" t "No. sir." "Did you ever drink beer?" "No. sir." "Did you ever want to drink beer?" "No, sir." 'Come around at 6 o'clock and go home with me." The boy reported five minutes before time: his new employer took him home with him to dinner and kept him in the family for nine months. 10 Stamps with 2 lbs.

Merchandise Steamers of the Muskoka Lake Country In Ontario. Among the interesting features of life in the Muskoka lake country. In Ontario, are the floating stores. A good sized steam vessel fitted out with every imaginable item of merchandise that might be required makes a tour of an assigned chain of lakes once On a certain hour of a certain day the boat is expected at the different resorts and summer homes, and enough merchandise must be bought at each to tide over until the next trip of the floating store. Upon stepping on board the store boats, says a writer In Popular Me chanics, the purchaser approaches a counter with scales and cash drawer. as In any other kind of store. Behind the counter are shelves,-on which are displayed each articles as may tempt the eye. Behind these shelves is the entrance to the storeroom and hold. In which more merchandise is stored. Each article has its place, and the storekeeper can find It in a moment. Sometimes isolated farms on the lakes are not worth stopping at every trip, s-a flag is flown when stores are desired. The store vessel drops an chor when the signal flag is flown. and some member of the family rows out and makes the purchases. CHAS. CLEKNER DEAD. Charles Clekner, formerly a well known resident of this city, died at his home in Indianapolis yesterday morning at 11 o'clock. He had been a sufferer from rheumatism for a number of years.

'Honor thy father and thy mother that thy days may be long upon the land wbicli the Lord thy God giveth thee' (Exodus xx, 12." London News. Beverlyl, Mass., Aug. 9. President Taft began his vacation this after noon by following up his favorite game golf. Accompanied by his son, Robert the two took leave of Mrs. Taft and the president's automobile whirled them over the roads to the links of the fashionable Myopia club In Hamilton, where a tournament is in progress this afternoon. James Sloan of the secret service guard went with them. The Myopia links are among the finest in the east and It is probable that the president may be asked to try a few holes. As soon as it became known that the president was oft for the links scores of auto mobiles laden with members of the fashionable North Shore social colony began leaving for the same place, when the presidents' automobile came into the automobile park at the My opia there was a general tooting of horns and this acted as a signal for the throng in the club house and on the links. They pressed forward and soon the president was busy shaking hands. Later the gallery began to form for the tournament and the presi dent seated himself to watch the start. The Youngster Hushed.

The partlcalar species of crocus that has frees time linmesaerial been culti vated for Ks dried stigmas, a product known under the name of saffron, la Crocus sativus, which is wild from Italy to Kurdistan. Saffroa may be reckoned among the very oldest of vegetable products, being alluded to In the Song of Solomon among other spices of Lebanon. The name crocus Is Chaldean or Greek and was first used by Tbeophrastue of Brssus about 350 B. C, and that it was a well known and admired dower ia Greece soon afterward is shewn by Sophocles, who mentions the "crocus of golden beam" In his "Cedlpus at Colonos." The word saffron seems to be a cor motion of the Arabic name "al aahafa- ran," and the product itself was first Imported into England as a spice or condiment, being also used as a color or dye for silks and other fabrics of the eastern looms. At a later date, exactly when Is not known, the plant itself was cultivated In England, more especially In Essex, in which county the name of Saffron Walden remains in evidence of the fact. Again, we have In London Ba f fron bill, which formerly was a site included In the bishop of Ely's garden at Holborn. once famous for Its saf fron beds as well as for its strawber ries.
