T,Je ruaaway horse In story books. s iu most of tbe veracious and detail ed account given tn tbe dally press. Invariably "takes the bit between bis teeth as a preliminary measure. It would be interesting to know how be does this. He obviously cannot get It between his molar teeth (grinders) un- less both his cheeks are silt up from the corners of bis mouth, and If tbe rheek straps be tbe right length It Is equally impossible for him to get It down to tbe level of bis incisors tnip pers), and there are no teeth In be tween! Thus perishes another hoary headed superstition! What does happen is that through steady, unremitting tension on tbe reins the bars of bis mouth becoco numbed and Impervious to pain. This enables him to set his Jaw firmly, put the whole weight of bis bead on tbe bit and successfully resist anything abort of one horsepower at tbe other end of tbe reins. This is tbe reason why when run away with one should never try to recover control by steady pulling, but should always use short, sharp pulls with Intervals of complete relaxation between them. Although It Is always advisable to drive a new horse, temporarily at least, with the bit to which be has been ac customed, provided that be goes satis factorily In it. It Is never safe to as sume that It Is the best possible one for him. This assumption, which Is general, is responsible for much trou ble that might be obviated. It is sur prising to note how complete and rad ical a change of bit may be made, not only with impunity, but with advan tage. If only the change be in tbe right direction. Outing Magazine.

SHE USED WOOD ALCOHOL MISS EDNA WALLACE, DAUGHTER OF MR. AND MRS. WM. WALLACE HAD NO DESIRE TO LIVE WILL PROBABLY RECOVER. Embittered over her failure to make a sorority at De Pauw university, Greencastle, Ind., Edna Wallace, the seventeen-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William M. Wallace, living three miles south of Milton, tried to commit suicide on Monday in her room at the university by drinking a large quantity of wood alcohol. When found by her room mate she was un conscious but the attending phsician was able to relieve her condition and believes the chances favor her recov ery. She will be returned to her home at Milton. Although word of her deed was not given to her parents until several hours after she was discover ed they left for Greencastle at once upon learning the truth. It is thought by her friends that she has been wor rying over her studies and the social obligations of the university to such an extent that her mind was affected temporarily when she learned that she was one of tbe few who failed to make a sorority. Miss Wallace entered De Pauw three weeks ago. Although the col' lege sororities formally pledged on Sunday, the girls who were to be tak en knew several days ago that they would "make a sorority"as it is call ed. Since that time Mies Wallace has been despondent, so the girls who room at the dormitory state. Monday she seemed quiet, it is said. - AH of the sororities held open house Monday morning for their new pledges and Miss Wallace was left alone. On the return of the first year girls to the dormitory she was not at first missed. Early In the afternoon, how ever, she was discovered unconscious on her 4ed with a bottle of wood alco hol half empty beside her. , Miss .Wallace is a graduate of the high school at Connersville and last year attended Wilson's school for girls at Chambersburg, Pa. BARRETT RESIGNS (Palladium Special) Indianapolis, OcL 18. Edward Bar rett, of Plainfield. candidate for state geologist on the Democratic ticket, has resigned from membership on the board of trustees of the Eastern Ind iana Hospital for the Insane at Rich mond. Gov. Marshall has accepted. "I believe I should not hold public of fice if I am a participant in the pres ent campaign." was the reason Bar rett gave for his resignation. m Prison uhip. 'The prlsou ship is uot a thing o! the past, says a letter from Gerniauy "but the one which 1 have discoverco has no resemblance to the Jersey ol Revolutionary times, where America t patriots suffered martyrdom. This out Is maintained by the city of Luneberg There are usually from thirty to forty offenders of the minor class confined there. At night they are locked in cells., and in the daytime they work under overseers on the dikes. Tbe ship looks like one of our American canal boats, and the interior, while it con tains no fancy furniture or decorative features. Is light and well ventilated and probably more comfortable than the habitations which the Inmates call home. New York Tribune. Wed Forged. Joakley I understand there's consid erable talk now in naval circles about some orders that were forged very skillfully. 4 Cbakley Aha! Another scandal, eh? Joakkty Oh, no. They were orders for ooBso elefct tac Death A CASK OF GLYCERIN. The Admiral Had to Prove That ft Waa Harmless. Life in Ireland is never devoid of the humorous, and when Admiral, then Captain, John Moresby was stationed at Queenstow n, in I860, be had his full ehare. He narrates in "Two Admirals" that it became his duty to survey a damaged ship ladeu with casks of glycerin. For purpose of repair he directed a portion cf the cargo to be landed and stored and thought no more about it. What was my astonishment next day, he says, to find the whole town in a panic and to be informed that every life . was in danger from the deadly compound stored under one of the principal offices of the place, The town council assembled and sent their health officer to stop all dis charge of cargo and to remove the vessel to the outer anchorage, "and the people gathered at the street corners in agitated crowds to meet their doom In comfortable companionship. I vainly contended that it could be nothing but pure glycerin. V , - "Pure glycerin, is it?" said theifhalc man. 'Well, there's mightj little dif ference between pure glycerin and im pure glycerin, and the ship must be off before we have the place blown about our ears." All I could say was: "Well, gentle men, if It is nitroglycerin a blow will explode It. I propose that a cask should be put in a field, and I will fire a shot at it. Will this satisfy you?" After much deliberation this hand some offer was accepted. I shall nev er forget that procession nor the ago nized countenances of the bearers who lifted the cask to a cart as softly pad ded for its reception as if it had been an Invalid in the last stages of disease. "Patsy and Jim Dempsey had great courage entirely," was the comment of the crowd as they followed at what they believed to be a safe distance. We wended our way Into the conn try attended by the prayers and bless lngs of all tbe old women of both sexes whom we met en route, and the gilded pinnacle was put on the terror when in lifting the cask into tbe field. far from all human habitation, one of the bearers stumbled and almost felL He turned a face of wan appeal to heaven as he recovered himself. But we got it there. I can still re call the town council crouching among the brambles of a distant hedge and watching with expectant eyes and manifest intention of instant flight. The shot hit the cask fair and square, and amid an awful silence a few slow tears of glycerin oozed out and trickled down its side. That was all. A MAN AGAINST A NATION. The Most Curious European War That Was Evor Wagad. The most curious European war ever waged was that which in the sixteenth century, the period of the reformation and the renaissance, was carried on single banded for between five and six years between a bankrupt grocer of Berlin and the elector of Saxony, who was tbe most powerful German prince of the period. The grocer's name w as Hans Koblhase, and the immediate cause of the quarrel was tbe arresting of two of his horses in tbe elector's territory, he being a subject of the elector of Brandenburg. Failing to get redress, he adopted what was tfcen a perfectly legal expedient and de clared formal war on the realm of Saxony. Tbe declaration was accepted in due form, and the war began. Tbe extraordinary part or the story Is that the grocer kept the war up for nearly six years practically single handed and even went to the extrem ity of declaring war on his own sover eign in the meantime before he was caught. He burned farms and eren villages, employed mercenaries after tbe fashion of the times and made himself the terror of the district. He was finally influenced to stop hostili ties by Luther, and after he had taken the sacrament from his hands he vas betrayed Into a further act of hostjty by treachery and, being captured, vf fered death, on the wheel after refusing- an act of grace which granted btm the painless and honorable death of the sword. The story Is perhaps lie strangest of all the romances of that romantic age. Westminster Gazette. A Question.

AFRAID OF MOONLIGHT. The Reason Porte Rieano Carry Um brellas at Night. "The majority of Porto Alcana bare instilled in them front earliest Infancy a superstitious dread of the foil moon's rays," said a business man who .has just returned from that country. "It is a curious sight to the American visitor to note men and women going along tbe streets and highways of the island with umbrellas raised over their heads in the Ion watches of tbe night, and the more brilliantly the moon Is shining tbe greater wilUw the number of people who are tsfca protecting themselves from her benms. Out in the sequestered rural districts a gay mounted cavalier win bo met at mid night, his bridle rein In one hand and an upraised umbrella la the other. It looks weird and also ridiculous, but the natives do It for a peculiar They are possessed of the conviction that Luna's full light striking; upon mortals is almost sure to make them mentally unsound that fas to say. lu naticsand that Is why they interpose a shield between them and her da ss ting brightness. "To sleep where toe moon could shine full upon one is, in tbe view of a Porto BJean. to tempt fate, and it would be a derma one who could be hired to do It for any Baltimore American.

" PALESTINE. . any Ways In Which It Strikingly Resembles California. Palestine Is more like the state of California than any other In the Union, In everything except size. It lies be tween longitude 34 degrees 30 minutes and 36 degrees SO minutes east and between latitude 80 degrees 30 min utes and 33 degrees 45 minutes north. ; It Is practically a California reduced to about one-twentieth In size, but markedly similar in general topogra phy, climate, vegetation 'and agricul tural and economic possibilities. " Like California. Palestine is longest from north to south. Like California, too. It has both very high mountains, having an elevation of 9,000 to lOJXtt feet; and very deep depressions. The Dead sea. 1J2O0 feet below sea level. Is the greatest depression known, and, like the Death valley of California, It is situated in the southern extremity of the country. ,i:-'.:y:;'u.:'r . .-XW In Palestine, Just ss In California, we have a dry,Mtrm season and a humid and mqre'temperate one. ' The rainy season extends from October to May and the dry season from May to Oc tober. ! Palestrae Is even more favored than California with regard jte- the winter temperature. Alttaf1itne thermome ter rises as high In summer In Pales tine as In California, with extremes of 110 degrees to 115 dears though not so often. It very rarely drops iu the winter to tbe freezing point. Snow is rare, even on the plateaus. And our farmers are practically safe from any damage by frost over nearly the entire extent of the country From Aaron Aaronsonna MA4rxlcuJtural and Botani cal Explorations In Palestine.' KEPT HER BUSY. The Wsy She Tried to Dissever the Telephone Numbers. HI dont believe that the publle schools teach their graduates to use their minds,'' remarked a wen known citizen of Philadelphia the other day. "Here's story Just to illustrate what I mean: I got a secretary last summer who bad Just been graduated with high honors from the Commercial blah school. She had been picked out for me as the best aM m her class, and I found her excellent in all that required methodical, parrot-like work, "One day I Jotted down some tele phone numbers that I wanted to re member and,' having: a poor memory, forgot In the course of the morning whose the numbers were or what the business was upon which I wanted to "So I called Hies Blank Just ss I. was going out and said. "Before you get your luncheon I wish you'd find out for me whose those telephone tanm-V bars are.' Two hours later I came back, and' Miss Blank was sitting at liar desk,! weary and perseverlngly studying; the telephone book.
