' ' An American Hobo. " U. D. Newell, manager of " Ai American Hobo," tells a good story of William L. Baker, the tramp com edian, while the latter was travelling in the far West several years ago. I was in a remote mining region in the San Juan country, Colorado, in a small camp called Rico. Baker was the comedian of a repertoire com pany, and the bill was "The Hidden Hand," in which lie played the part of Wool. "It was our opening night and we performed in an old shack of a hall no two narrow flights of stairs, lit by kerosene lamps, seated 'with rough benches. It was Baker's firs season on the road, and he had been RIB?, SHOULDERS, PIGSFEET a few days Children's Go-Carts and Carriages O .J We have ever carried. Be sure and see the line before purchasing. DUwFAivr Main Street. OSTEOPATHIC PHYSICIANS TEL. NO. 1628 our MOORFof The River Roller Mills MILTON, IND. led to believe that a man's life was not worth a cent in the mining coun try; that the men usually amused themselves between the acts by shoot ing out the lights and at times an ac tor became the target for stray bul lets. The show opened up and all went lovely until the finish of the first act, when a. burly miner, who was seated on the back of a bench, accidentally discharged his six shoot er while applauding Baker, who was making an immense hit in his part. Baker, becoming frightened, took this as his cue for disappearing. When the next act was ealled no one could find head nor hair of Baker. After searching high and low the remainder of the performance had to be gone through without him. After the play was over, the miners all wanted to know what had become of 'Wool.' Well we searched high and low fo him witli the assistance of some o the miners, and at last, in the cellar of the hall, behind a lot of rubbish, we discovered Baker ajinusu suffocat ed and trembling with fright. We hauled horn out, and his first words were: 'For God's sake don't shoot I did the best T could.' It is needless to sny that Baker's entire salary foi that week was used up at a thirst parlor, providing liquid refreshments to prevent himself from being quizz ed with a rather touchy question." Gennett Saturday matinee and mg!if. Pop u 1 rfrunecs . "The Fortune Teller." An attraction which is certain to attract the theatergoers is "The Fortune Teller" which is shortly t' be seen locally. There is no doibt in the minds of the well informed as t( the value of this comic opera as an entertainment. To begin with it is one of the handsomest productions that has ever been given a musical production, for the Messrs. Aborn under whose management the opera is being presented have obtained the complete production which was used 1)3 Alice Nielsen for the same operr ant? which cost the enormous sum of $40,000. No comic opera the stage has sen in recent 3'ears enn approach this production in the matter of lav ish ness. As is known the music i: extremely good and the book contains many brieht and sparkling lines. The Messrs. Aborn have placed the prin cipal parts in the best hands and the organization is a large one numbering sixty people. "The Fortune Teller' is to come to the Gennett theatre Friday, Feb. 12th. Guest Madame, I'm thinking of put ting up at your house. Landlady (grimly) Yes, sir; in ad vance. New York Evening Journal. Often leads to pov erty. No real woman ever sold her heart for the . luxuries of life. But many a woman who has gladly faced poverty for the man she loved, may well doubt her wisdom when pain becomes the mate of poverty. If she were rich, she thinks, she could find a way of cure. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is within the reach of every one. It lifts the burden of pain which weighs down those who suffer from womanly diseases. It establishes regularity, dries weaken ing drains, heals inflammation and ul ceration and cures female weakness. "You have my heartfelt thanks for your kind advice to me," writes Mrs. Geo. Fletcher, of ic6 Victoria Avenue. Gait, Cftitario. "Was troubled with catarrh of uterus for over a year. The doctors said I would have to go through an op eration, btwt I commenced to use Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and 'Golden Medical Dis covery,' also his ' Lotion Tablets' and 'Antiseptic and Healing Suppositories. Now I am com pletely cured, after using six bottles of Dr. Pierce's medicines. I am glad to say his medi cine has made tne a new woman " Weak and sick women, especially those suffering from diseases of long standing, are invited to consult Dr. Pierce by let ter, free. All correspondence is held as strictly private and sacredly confi dential. Address Dr. R. V. Tierce, Buffalo, N. Y. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellet9 are easy and pleasant to take.

Until two years ago whoever rode from Ponce, the residential part of the southern seaport of Porto Rico, built some miles inland many years ago to escape trie visits of the old time buc caneers, to the playa. or port, where the ousiness of the place ts transacted, did sc In vehicles not unlike a New England carryall. Passengers crowd ed into these carriages, paid their fares according to their ability to drive a bargain with tLe presiding jehu and were responsible, under the Spanish regime, for any accidents that the reck less driving of that cheerful individual might bring to pass in the course of their journey. All this has materially changed since May, 1002, when the first car of an American trolley line, built by the Stone-Webster management, began run ning between Ponce and the playa. The rickety vehicles, with their cheer fully reckless drivers, have practically disappeared, and the little brown, half naked children who made the borders of the old military road their play ground are actually very much safer since the advent of the "broomstick train." Many who formerly were pe destrians from financial necessity rath er than choice have taken to the trol-3 ley cars, thanking their stars for a uniform fare that makes the luxury of riding possible, and the line has car ried an average. of several hundred pas sengers daily. The equipment of this little pioneer American electric railway in Porto Ili co consists of half a dozen open "elec trics" operated by motormen and con ductors in khaki uniform and recruited chiefly from the younger men of the is land. On the cars are several gradu ates of Spanish colleges a.nd one gradu ate of Columbia university, taking this opportunity to begin working their way upward in the service of the American management. Later it is expected to develop the road as a freight as well as a passenger carrier, a development that will do much to help the coffee, sugar and tobacco interests that center around the water front of the playa. "Dead Hand" of the Uieli Father. The "dead hand" of the rich father is still apt to keep a firm hold of the sur viving daughter, as appears from the will of the late K. F. Crawshay, the wealthy Cyfarthfa ironmaster, who provided that if any of his daughters married any but an English subject or an American citizen her share of his fortune of $.j00,0OO should be divided among her brothers and sisters. Such conditions, however, are hardly more string nt than those imposed by an Irish judge. Sir Jerome Alexander, in the reign of Charles II., on his daughter Elizabeth, for she was to forfeit all the great estates he bequeathed her in the event of her marrying "any lord of Ire land or any archbishop, bishop, prelate, baronet, knight, esquire or gentleman that had come of Irish extraction or been born and bred in Ireland." Lon don Modern Society. Slngrular Birthmark of a Family. Mrs. Belle Harvey of Bower's Mill is one of a family of four living in that place, each of whom has a curious birthmark. The family consists of three sisters and a baby two 3-ears old. Each has black hair, with a large lock of pure white hair, beginning over the forehead and running backward. The flesh under this hair is also white, and the white mark runs down upon the forehead. The entire mark is sa"d to look like an ostrich plume laid over the head of the bearer. The three sisters are twenty-three, twenty-one and nine teen years old. The mark is said to be hereditary in their family. Kansas City Journal. Grapo Fruit. While the taste for grape fruit is possibly an acquired one, it holds, and the wholesome fruit is considered in dispensable for breakfast in hundreds of homes. There is a good hygienic reason for this increase in grape fruit's popularity. Its peculiar acid renders it an almost sovereign remedy for ma larial and bilious troubles, while as a "bracer" it is quite the equal of quinine and vastly more agreeable. Physicians recommend it most highly for grip con valescents, and some assert that the habitual consumer of grape fruit can even consider himself immune from the prevalent malady. Exchange. Ancient Celtic trim. In the course of some digging opera tions in a garden at Haslemere. Eng land, a gardener unearthed a number of ancient vessels of peculiar shape, to gether with a quantity of calcined hu man bones, at a depth of about two feet below the surface. The British museum authorities, who have exam ined the discovery, pronounce the ves sels to belong to the late Celtic age, about B. C. ISO. Only three or four vessels were found in a perfect condi tion. t He computed that twenty-two urns and pots were originally interred at the spot. The Last of the I'onster. Sir Francis Burnand. one of the best punsters that have lived, is also one of the last. Puns, as Bob Acres remarked of another form of speech, have had their day. There was a time when this form of humor in the hands of Theo dore Hook or II. J. Byron convulsed the public with laughter. The habitual punster of today would be shunned like leper by his acquaintances. London Treasury. 'olitical An COUNTY OFFICES STATE SENATOE. ' Roscoe E.
