The American National Red Cross Society has decid ed to spread among bituminous mines the First Aid to the Injured system, which was introduced several years ago- by the anthracite operators of Pennsylvania, A cat has been donated to the Society by the Pullman com pany; it will visit the mines through out the United States to make known to employers and employes the most approved first-aid methods. With the sanction of the Interstate Commerce Commission, every raidroad to which the Red Cross Society has made application,' has agreed to fur nish. free, transportation for the car The scheme is expected to be In opera tion the latter part of the month. Dr. M. J. Shields, the man who start Bd the first-aid-to-the-lnjured classes In the anthracite coal fields, has been retained by the American Red Cross lociety to carry, on its campaign. Dr, Shields will travel with the car, and . the United States Geological Survey will also detail a man to accompany him to illustrate and explain the use Df the various appliances and safety devices.

' In recent years the first-ald-to-the-Injured corps have become an import ant feature of the work of the com panies in the anthracite fields. The corps are formed exclusively $t the mine workers, and a spirit of rivalry between the first-air organizations has kept efficiency up. to the top notch. Every year the companies hold con tests, and prizes are given to the win ning teams. ROLLA STOLE WHEEL Holla Doner, a seventeen-year-old boy living at 21T South Twelfth street, was in police court this morning, charged with the . theft of a bicycle from Peter Husson. The wheel was found in the boy's possession, and as there was no Question as to his guilt, the prosecutor asked that a stiff sen tence be given him. There have been numerous complaints about stolen bi cycles and as it is for the most part the work of youngsters, Attorney Ladd believes sound punishment will have a good effect. The sentence was $10.0) and costs and ten days in jail. For disorderly conduct, Mildred Groce, col ored, was fined $J.OO and costs. MISUNDERSTOOD. But After AwhiU tho Young Man Mado His Case Clear. As the young man entered the old man looked up and scowled. "Well?" said the old man shortly. "lour daughter" began the young man, but the old man cut him off ab ruptly. "I've noticed that you've been hang ing around here a good deal." he said. "I suppose that you've come to tell me that you love her and want to marry her?" . "No," replied the yonng man calmly. Tve come to tell you that she loves me and wants to marry me." .' "What?" roared the old man. . "She says so herself," , persisted the young man. v. "I never heard of such an exhibition of egotistical Impertinence," said the old man. , i "Then you. misunderstand me," ex plained the young man. "My assertion fs dictated by. policy and not by Im pertinence, You see, it's Just this way. What I want is nothing to you; now, Is it?" "Why er not exactly." - "I might want $1,000, but that wouldn't matter to you, would it?" . "Certainly not." "You're under no obligations to sup ply me with what I want, are you?" "Hardly," "Then what a foolish proposition it would be for me to come to you and ay, 'Mr. Parkinson. I have been very favorably impressed with your bouse and furniture. or 'I think I'd like your daughter or anything else in that line. But when your daughter wants any thing it's different. Now, isn't It dif ferent?" "It certainly is different" admitted the old man cautiously. "Precisely," said the yonng man. "She and I figured that all out very carefully last night You see, I have no particular prospects, and we could both see that there wasn't one chance In a hundred that you would give her to me. Then she suggested that you had never yet refused anything that he wanted, no matter what the cost might be. and that perhaps It would be a good plan to change the usual order somewhat We sort of felt that it wouldn't be right to ask you to do anything for me, but it's different in her case, as I remarked before. So I'm here merely as her agent to say that she wants me and that she wants me very much and to ask you to please see that she gets me. She never has wanted anything so much as she wants me, and I am so favorably dis posed toward her that If you care to make the investment I shall be quite willing to leave the terms entirely- to you and her." , , '".

The betting today was 3 to 2, in fav or of the crimson in the varsity 5ght oared race, the great feature, but Har vard cohorts were equally confident that the blue would have to trail also in the "varsity 4-oared events while all the crews and their coaching etrtffs were worked up to hand the Eii"s a duplication of last year's defeat. SIM WAS TRUTHFUL "Is the male contracting party af flicted with epilepsy, tuberculosis. veneral, or any 'other contagious or transmissible disease?" sang out the marriage license clerk at the county clerk's office, and the usual answer of "no," whether truthful or not, was anticipated. "Well, to be frank," whispered Sim Jackson of Rising Sun, Ind., the male contracting party, of 77 years, "I have the rheumatism." The female contracting party, age fifty was somewhat astounded 'at the con fession but did not delay the proceed ings.

An idler who fre quents the station was inspecting a revolver and carelessly pointing the deadly weapon at those sitting near. McNally warned him and he turned the muzzle away just as a slight pres sure on the trigger exploded one of the cartridges. The Great Cod Banks. There is Just one other great cod bank in the world besides those oil Newfoundland. It lies oft Cape Agul has, which is the southern tip of Af rica and south of the Cape of Good Hope. The Agulbas plateau is said to be almost a duplicate in size and richness of the north cod banks.
