FOUND DEAD AT TOLLESTOX.
Coroner Hoskins held an inquest this
morning over the remains of an un
known man who was found dead in a
real estate office in Tolleston yesterday
Although unknown in name and re
lations, the dead man was a familiar
person around Tolleston, where he was
known to be of unsteady habits. By
those who knew him he was generally
called "Paddy" or "Red." For some
time he was employed at Gary, but the
past few weeks he spent in Tolleston.
The man is seemingly about 40 years
old. He is five feet three inches tall
and weighs about 140 pounds. He has
blue eyes, blond hair and a sandy-col
ored mustache. He will be buried at
the county's expense.
A LIMIT OX RICE IIEXS.
There seems to be a mistaken idea
among hunters that they may kill all
the rice hens they see fit on any day
This is not true, the limit of twenty
four to be killed in one day being the
same as for ducks, as the following
section will show:
Section 599, Acts of 1905. "Who
ever shoots or kills more than twenty-
four wild ducks, brants, or other water
fowl In any one day shall,
on conviction, be fined $10 for each
wild duck, brant or other water fowl
so shot or killed in excess of twenty-
It is understood every effort will be
made to prosecute and convict viola
tors of this section of the law.
GOAT AS PRISONER.
Officer John Kunz this morning ar
rested a goat named Sultan and thereby
hang3 a tale. Before continuing, it
might be well to relate that Sultan was
soon released for lack of sufficient evl
dence to convict him.
Sultan, belongs to Fred Sommers, but
it was sort of a personal affair Som-
mefs name has not been put on the
It seems that Sultan was busied this
forenoon in the neighborhood of the
Hotel Carleton where Is employed
Mrs. Soweis who sometimes carries out
the ashes. This morning she evidently
raised more dust than Sultan thought
necessary so he "tutted in". It is not
necessary to go into details to explain
just how Sultan "butted in". Suffice It
to say that Mrs. Soweis fell over
nearby brick pile.
Officer Kunz who just then stepped
around the corner was appealed to and
sizing up the situation he began to be
labor the billy goat with his billy and
the latter retaliated with an attempt
to knock Kunz down goat fashion
umcer K.unz, however, anticipating
Sultans design, seized the goat by
the horns and under his breate he mut
tared: "You to the Michigan Central
tracks where a steam engine shall pass

shail you go into people's back yards
and there steal and eat their red under

As there was no train due for the
next half hour and Sultan made a si-
lent plea for mercy the officers heart
relented and he sent Sultan on his way

Custom Borrowed from the Boers to
Get Rid of Bores.
In South Africa candles are used

gentlemen visitors, the mother sticks
a pin in the candle, and when it has
burned to the pin the callers under

Mrs. Early, a society matron of
Washington, recently made a visit to
the Transvaal, and was impressed
with the custom of the Boers that
she determined to introduce it into
her own home. Consequently the elec
trie lights were removed and candles
substituted in the drawing-room.
Mr. Staylate, a frequent though not
always welcome caller, was one of
the first visitors to call after the in
auguration of the new custom. He
witnessed the placing of the pin in
the candle by Mrs. Early, and after
she had gone ventured to inquire:
"Why, Miss Early, does your moth
er stick a pin in the candle?"
"Oh," responded the young woman
with an air of apparent Innocence
"mother learned that in South Africa
as a way of sending home the Boers."
Women Must Like to Work.
The increase In the number of wom
en In the trade and industry of Amer
ica is alarming. Out of 205 "gainful
occupations" enumerated by the cen
sus of the United States, there are
only eight in which women do not ap
pear. From four out of these eight oc
cupations women are excluded by law
At the present time there are over
6,000.000 women at work in various
trades and occupations in the United
States. In 1900, of every five Ameri
can women over ten years of age,
there was one who was going outside
of her family duties and who was tak
ing part in the gainful work of the
working world. At that time there
were 40 women civil engineers, 30
women mechanical and electrical en
gineers and three women mining en
gineers, besides 14 women veterinary

winter it made its appearance firsf,
and a certain new hotel, which is sup
posed to be an authority on good taste,
had all its rooms supplied with cor
nices made of the same cloth as the
window curtains. This style became
popular then, but now the old fashion
ed brass and gilt cornices of colonial
days are most in demand. The orig
inals are so rare that they are almost
unattainable, but such good imitations
are made that the difference can
scarcely be noted.
When cornices were the fashion in
former years it was the custom to
draw back the curtains, but today they
are, as a rule, allowed to hang. The
lambrequin is edged with gimp of the
same shade as the cloth, and some
times, when the curtains are made of
some cheap little material, such aa
cotton or cotton and silk, this gimp la
not used at all. Bedroom curtains,
made of some soft material and edged
with a rufile of lace, are exceedingly
effective hanging from a brass cornice,

pretty a curtain as any one could de

of designs are used for casement cur
tains or for Inner curtains when the
glass is covered with a cream or white
In regard to making curtains at
home, those who have the best success
follow these rules: Make the hems
about two inches wide; miter the cor
ners; turn tbe top hem in two or three
thicknesses, as the rurtain is very apt
to shrink when laundered.
A Guide to Happiness.
Learn to laugh. A good laugh is bet
ter than medicine. Learn to tell a sto
ry. A well told story is as welcome as
a sunbeam in a sickroom. Learn to
keep your own troubles to yourself.
The world is too busy to care for your
ills and sorrows. Lern to do some
thing for others. Even if you are a
bedridden invalid, there is always
something that you can do to make
others happier, aud that is the surest
way to attain happiness for yourself.
Let your aim be high. Let some
great object fire your whole being.
Our country holds out a thousand situ
ations which you might All honorably.
Seek to be such that the present gener
ation and all posterity will hold you in
the sweetest remembrance of doing
some sunshine work.
