Original Name of Highway Must be Adhered to Says Washington. 'Jackson Fark avenue hereafter will be restored to Its original name Stony Island avenue. This is the substance of a late order issued by the postoffice authorities at Washington, D: C, and must be complied with. A few years ago the committee on street nomenclature decided that the name, Jackson Park avenue, was a little bit more classy than Stony Is land avenue, and accordingly changed the name, but, the people who live along the avenue did not take to the new name with approval, and a big kick was registered without results until the postoffice officials decided to change the avenue to its original name. The changing of the name to Stony Island avenue again has caused the people to sit up and take notice and much joy has been shown on all sides over the restoration of the name.

It takes a prodigious amount of vege table matter to form a layer of coal, it being estimated that the present growth of the world would make a lay er less than one-eighth of an inch In thickness, and that it would take a million years of vegetable growths to form a coal-bed ten feet in thickness. The United States has an area of more than 440,000 square miles of coal-fields, and more than 100,000,000 tons of coal were mined in this coun try last year enough to run a ring around the earth at the center 6 feet wide and 5 feet thick. Competent scientists say that there is enough coal in the United States to supply the world for the next 2,000 years. Sp The Red Beaded Policeman Copyright, 1908. One day as the red beaded police man was pacing his beat In a certain American city of 100.000 inhabitants a woman called to him from the steps of a house and reported that soon after daylight that morning. Just as she had awoke and was making ready to get up. she had been frightened half to death by the sight of a large mon key at the open winodw. She had screamed out, and the animal had fled. Later in the day she had seen the monkey frisking about on the roof of the shed attached to the house next door, into which a stranger, who was evidently a foreigner, had moved three or four days before. lie was a man of middle age, and there was an old woman with him, probably to act as housekeeper. "And I'm askinc vou. sir." continued the woman as she raised her hand and j waved it to ami fro. "if it's the law in i America that a foreigner and an old j woman and a rascally monkey can j move in next door to a respectable ; widow woman, who has paid taxes for the last fifteen years, leaving the mon key to run at large and scare people out of their seven senses?" "It's an Italian, ma'am, who is your new neighbor," answered the police man. "I was jabbering with him the day he rented the house." "Then he's in the hand organ busi ness?" ''Then he's not, ma'am. He's in the count business. He's had to fly from his own sunny skies to save his life. You ought to be proud that you have a live count living next door." Three or four days later the police heard at the station to which he was attached of a bold burglary in the neighborhood. A burglar had entered by a second story window and made a haul of money aud jewelry, and no clew had been left behind. This bur glary was followed by auother within twe,nty-four hours, and then came what the police and press called a "wave" of crime, though it was strict ly confined to despoiling private resi dences. In some cases it was impossi ble to tell how entrance had been ef fected. In others it was plain that an open window was the route. Of course the detectives investigated, and of course when no arrests follow ed they got a roasting in the newspa pers. It reached the point where the chief of police was asked to resign as a man utterly unfitted for the place. In return he bounced two of his de tectives because they could not pick up clews where no clews had been left. Then the red headed policeman sat down to do some thinking. He thought of many a thing before he fol lowed the line down to the widow who had told him about the monkey. Then he began to scratch that red hair and think the harder and finally decided to take a walk around on Sands street and see if the count still occupied the house. He reached the house of the widow first. Again she was standing on the steps. At sight of him she descended to the walk and said: "So it's you, is it? I've been wait-, ing a whole week to ask you if it's the habits of monkeys to go to bed like honest folks at night and get up at. a reasonable hour In the morning or whether they are philandering all over town after midnight and coming home any time before daylight." "In the wilds of Africa, ma'am" began th officer, but was interrupted with: "But these are not the wilds of Af rica. I've been doing some watching for these last few moonlight nights. 1 didn't know but the Ulack Hand would be coming for the count next door. I've seen the monkey come and go half a dozen times. He comes and goes by way of the shed roof." "And what of it, ma'am what of it?" asked the officer. "I can't say, sir, but it's a matter that bothers me. I thought I'd speak of it and let it bother you." It did bother the red headed police man for the next hour. Then he con sulted with his superiors, and as a re sult two detectives were sent to inter view the count They didn't succeed in their purpose. He aud the old wom an had skipped out in a hurry an hour before their arrival. People who had seen them go said that they had no monkey along with them. In fact, the animal was discovered on the roof in the sunshine and fast asleep, but es caped capture. It was felt certain that he was the mysterious burglar, and a watch was set on the premises. He came not back, while during the next ten nights there was a burglary every night to mix things up again. Then a boy solved the w hole case. Two blocks distant from where the count had lived an old tomcat had retired to a stable to die in peace. In his wanderings the monkey had come across him and, being full of sentiment, had sought to make the fe line's last hours pleasant ones. He had continued to rob and plunder as before, but had deposited everything beside old Tom and was a mourner there when discovered and shot by the red headed officer. More that $3,000 worth of stuff was found right there, and. leaving the respectable widow en tirely out of it. the officer took on a new and prouder look as he said to himself: "It pays for a policeman to have thoughts. If I hadn't had 'em this thing would never have happened, and It might hare been twenty years be fore they nude me a roundsman." I AI. QUAD- "Old Clothes." Original. I am the hardest substance known. I have a green tinge about me, though my mates are usually colorless. It is the rarity of this tinge and my size that makes me very valuable. Though no larger than a hickory nut, I am worth many thousand dollars. I was born In Brazil. The first of this world, at least of daylight, for me was rolling out with stones, sand, earth and other minerals following the stroke of a pick. I lay on the ground before a workman. lie looked about him and, seeing his foreman's back turned, pick ed me up and put me in his mouth. When he went from work he was searched, but I was not discovered. The next scene in my life of motion, so to speak, was in a wood. The work man who had found me sold me to a nian of lMcr Srado- The I'rlce Paid 'ns 0 in United States bills. The man who bought me took me to a room, locked the door and examined me carefully. I could see by his expres sion that he was very much pleased with me. He got a box of sewing utensils from a closet and. ripping a pocket in the lining of his coat, put me in and sewed ine fast. I didn't suppose that I would stay long in this place, but I did. One day a policeman came to my owner's room and arrested him. He was not wearing the coat in which he had sewed me. It hung in a closet. A month later it was taken down and with other clothing taken to Villa de Principe, where it was sold to a Jew. A young man "all tattered and torn" came into the Jew's shop, tried on sev eral coats, and. the one I was in fitting him, he bought it. I think the price paid was $2. The young man walked all the way to Rio, doing work hero and there for a meal. Had he known that he had me with him he might have ridden in a coach and four. When lie got to Rio he shipped on a vessel bound for New Haven, Conn. I was rolled, with other clothing, in a small bundle and put under his bunk, he donning sailor togs. When we reach ed New Haven my owner put on his shore clothes, left the vessel and walk ed up into the city. He met a number of young men he knew, and by his con versation with them I learned that he had been a student in the college there and his father had died insolvent dur ing the son's second year. From a student he had become a sailor, had sought employment in South America and had got stranded in Brazil. One of his old chums loaned him some money with which to buy a ticket to his home in a distant city. This home was in a shabby little cot- tage in the suburbs. It was both a melancholy and a happy meeting be tween the young man and his mother and his two sisters. They were evi dently people of refinement living in poverty. Their returned boy was hun gry, but there was nothing save a piece of corn bread in the house to give him. They begged him to stay with them, try for a position and help them. To this he consented, and they were happy. That night after he had gone to bed one of his sisters took his clothes and sat up late patching and darning them that he might appear the better in looking for employment. After the sewing she took them downstairs into the kitchen, heated an iron and pressed them. While running the iron over the coat its nose hit an obstacle in me. She felt of me, took me to the light to examine the place where I was; then, taking u knife, she ripped the sewing and took me out. Seeing nothing but a brownish stone, she threw me into a coal scuttle, but on second thoughts took me up again and put me on a tabie. Then, finishing her ironing, she took the clothes to her brother's room. The next morning she showed me to her brother and told him where she had found me. He looked me over very carefully, thinking all the while, and asked bis sister to show him the place where she had found me. Then he put me In his pocket and later on started out to look for a situation. About noon i he went home. He met his mother in the hall. He was pale and trembling. "Oh, mother!" he exclaimed. "My boy, what has happened?" "If It shouldn't be true it would kill me." "What?" The stone Fannie found sewed in my coat. Thinking it might be a jewel in the rough, I took it to a jeweler. He snys it's a diamond. A diamond of that size is worth many thousands of dollars." He took me out of his pocket, and the mother and her daughter gathered round, each trembling with excitement. "Don't count on too much, dear boy," said the mother. "If It is a diamond, it has a real owner, and you must find him, but he will doubtless give you a reward for its return." But the owner was never found. The young man wrote to the officers of all the diamond mines in Brazil, and all replied that they had no record of any such diamond, though I had doubtless been taken from some of them when dug from the earth. Since none of them could prove ownership none of them claimed me. I was polished, cut and sold for a fortune. The young man went back to college, and, the story of his return petting out among the students, they gave him the sobriquet of "Old Clothes."

A small advance guard of delegates put in an appearance today in readiness for the republican state nominating convention. Tho oonentlon will be called to order In the Auditorium at 11 o'clock tomor row morning. A full state ticket will be nominated, including candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, secre tary of state, state treasurer, attorney general and two railroad commission ers. The contest is confined almost wholly to the gubernatorial nomination and the nominations for railroad commis sioners. For each of the other places on the ticket there Is but one candi date In the field. The aspirants for the governorship are numerous, though several of them may drop out of the race before the balloting begins. The candidates for the nomination are Attorney General Edward T. Young, of Appleton; J. F. Jacobson, of Madison: former Con gressman Joel P. Heatwole, of North field; former Congressman Samuel P. Snider, of Minneapolis, and M. W. Sav age, the millionaire horseman, also of M inneapolls. The "Woman cf Stenay." The name of the "Woman of Ste nay" is revered in Lorraine 'as a ra tional heroine. In the Napoleonic wars a detachment of Austrians visit ed Stenay and demanded a cask of wine. "The Woman of Stenay" promptly brought one, telling the sol diers they were welcome to her store, and drank a cup of wine to their health. The soldiers promptly drank, but in a few moments 400 men were writhing in agony on the ground; the "Woman of Stenay" rose from her seat, saying: "You are all poisoned! Vive la France!" and she fell back a corpse. Birthplace of the Icebergi. We might call Greenland the world's ice box. If you glance at the map you will see that the state of New York, large as it seems to us, is not over one-twentieth of the size of Green land, for New York contains only 47. 000 square miles. Then think that the glaciers are steadily moving away from the center of Greenland, really being crowded off the land, and it will not seem so strange that here is the birthplace of nearly all of the icebergs that are; so feared by the mariner.
