To the many instances given' of the typographical errors, which, like the poor, are always with us, we add the following: Horace Greeley was noted for his wretched writing, which puzzled many a printer. Once he wrote, ""lis true, 'tis pity, and pity 'tis true," quoted from Shakespeare. It appear ed the next day. " 'Tis two, 'tis fifty, 'tis fifty 'tis fifty-two. ' ' A paper printed this extraordinary piece of news in connection with a great demonstration: "The snouts of ten thousand people rent the air." Of course the reporter had written "shouts" instead of "snouts." Bishop W. A. Candler was once advocating a more liberal loosing of the purse strings, and told his audi ence that several years ago he sent an article to a paper, in which, he said: "We pray too loud and work too lit tle." The compositor, consciously or unconsciously, perpetrated a little joke, for when the article appeared it read: "We bray too loud and work too little." "I let it go at that," said the bishop. "The fact is, I believe the printer was right, and I never ven tured to correct him." New Telephone Company Organized in Preble County. (Ncav Paris Mirror.) Last Friday Greenville capitalistst incorporated the "ElDorado and West Manchester Telephone Com pany." The incorporators are Col. W. D. Rush, J. U. Iieis, F. C. Conk ling, C. TL Leftwich and Conrad Kipp. These gentlemen are the owners of the Greenville company and sometime ajro built lines to Ncav Madison, El Dorado and Manchester. An exchange has been established at ElDorado. The object in organising the neAV company is to separate the ElDorado and Manchester business from that of Greenville and male the two ex changes independent of each other. The Pennsylvania lines west have just doubled their sleeping car and dining car service with the installa tion of the schedule which took ef fect yesterday. Thirty-five new sleeping cars between St. Louis and NeAV York and Pittsburg and Chi cago. The Pennsyh'ania people claim that no road in the country can boast a better sleeping car and coach equip ment than the Pennsylvania lines west. ... yinV Of Rev. Madison Swadener to Be Given Here. lhe ladies or the parsonage com mittee of the First M. E. church have arranged with Rev. Madison Swaden er, D.D., to give his popular lecture, "A Parson's Philosophy of Life," Wednesday evening, June 8, at the church, Fourteenth and Main streets. The ladies are pleased to present this most inspiring and enjoyable lec ture which has elicited such compli mentatry expressions everywhere. The Augusta (Ga.) Tribune says: A cultured and appreciative audi ence had the pleasure of hearing Rev. Dr. Madison Swadener deliver a thor oughly enjoyable lecture, "A Par son's Philosophy of Life." A very happy philosophy it was, and every one present felt the better for having heard it elucidated. The lecture was not only rich in thought, but it fairly bubbled over in humor. It was a rare mingling of inspira tion, tender pathos and clean humor by a master hand. Rev. Dr. Swaden er is an attractive personality and possesses the elements of an orator. His voice is powerful and pleasing. His utterances of last Friday even ing indicated a man of broad intel lectuality and a big heart. The lecture was given for the bene fit of the Epworth League and a gen erous sum was realized. OBITUARY. Nellie M., daughter of Archibald and Susan Hinshaw, Avas born March 17, 1S85, near Williamsburg, and de parted this life May 12, 1904, at the home of her parents, two and one half miles southeast of Williamsburg. The services were held in the Methodist church of that place. Rev. Trippeer, of Economy, officiating. Nellie was of a kind and loving dis position, always ready to lend a help ing hand to those about her, especi ally her invalid father, never tiring of administering to his wants. Nellie expressed herself a number of times during her last illness, as be- j ing ready to leave her earthly home : p 4i. i, i tr ii at- i I il uie amy -rumei saw 111 iu iun her to her eternal home. Bes'des father and mother she leaves eight sisters and three brothers to mourn her loss, she being the first of twelve children to be called away. What is their loss is her eternal gin. 'Tis hard to break the tender cord when Love has bound the heart ; 'Tis hard, so hard, to speak the word Ave must foreA-er part; Dearest loATed one Ave must lay thee in the peaceful grave's embrace. But the memory will be cherished, till Ave see thy heavenly face. Card of Thanks. The family desires to express their thanks to friends and neighbors for their kindness during the sickness and death of their daughter and sis ter. STRIKING A BARGAIN. A Case Where Mere Money Did Not Cut MiK-li of A l-'lure. "Several years ao there aams a boom in certain lands in Florida because of rich phosphate deposits," said a south ern man. "A speculator asked one of those simple Florida folk Avhat Avould be the lowest price he Avould take for some land Avhich before the boom he had been unable to sell for $.tH). The OAvner really didn't know. The specu lator agreed to deposit in bank ?10,000 to the owner's credit for the land. Iut this amount of money in bank didn't mean very much to the native. "He said he Avanted a farm of sixty acres Avith a house on it, the Avhole to cost a feAv hundred. " 'What else?' asked the speculator. " Tan I have a horse and saddle and bridle?' " 'Certainly.' " 'And a rifle? " 'Yes. "'And some provisions?' " 'Yes.' "The eyes of the native began to bulA'e. There Avas a pause. " 'What else do you Avant?' asked the speculator. " 'Oh. s've nie .?."0 for the old woman to buy things for herself and chil dren' "lie then started to walk away. " 'What else?' asked the speculator. " 'Is there more yet?' " 'Yes.' ' 'Well, idve me a plus of tobacco and set me down where the fish wiH bite nil da.-, and you can have the rest.' " Baltimore Sun. MI!tc O'Xelll. "Mike O'Neill, with the St. T.oula Cardinals. Is a queer customer," say3 Fred OdAvell. "He has a couple of twisted fingers on one hand, and one day when he grew confidential at Montreal he said as he held up his digits. 'Only for them I'd have been I prizefichter Instead of a ball player.'' i vi uuauuuui uuu ULLOA'S CIRCLES. TA'aW'Uter Ruin bo tv n4 One Ooc- , ; M Wliiei it Vn Obiserved. t-A wonderful atmospheric phenome- "i non, described by both Ulloa and Bon ger, 'was first observed by the first named gentleman during the stay of himself and party in the Pincbincba., One morning at daybreak the whole mountain top was covered with a dense fog. After a short while the at mosphere became tolerably clear with the exception of a few vaporous t clonus. wnne the travelers Wire watching the gradual disappearance of the fog one of them turned quickly and perceived an image of himself distinctly mirrored on that quarter of the sky opposite the rising sun. The figure appeared to stand in the center of three concentric rings Avhich Avere shaded vlth different colors, while around Avas a fourth and much larger ring tinted Avith but a single hue. The outermost edge of each of the interior rings Avas crimson, the next orange, with a shade of pale yellow, the in nermost tint being of a brilliant green. When first seen these rings Avere hardly circular in form, but they soon became perfect. But as they did so. which depended on the rising of the sun toward the zenith, the colors grad ually disappeared until finally the whole apparition faded like a mirage from the gaze of the astonished sci entists. THE QUEER MANDINGOES. In Thi African Tribe the "Wive Wear the Trouaera. The Mandingoes, who inhabit a tract of country in Africa, are strict Mo hammedans in religion; but, curiously enough, they still retain many of the superstitions of the negro races from which they sprang. Consequently their marriage ceremony is a mixture of the two, and, although it is performed by a marabout or holy man in the mosque, it contains one very ridiculous element. Next in importance to the marabout is the bridegroom's sister, and when the marriage ceremony reaches the point where the visible bond, usually typified in civilization by the ring, this sister steps forAvard and in place of the ring presents the lady AA'ith a pair of trou sers, Avhich are lniineuiately clonneu. T!e ceremony is concluded by a very mournful song sung by the com panions of the bride, Avho then conduct her again to the home of her parents, as, OAA-ing to the extreme probability of one or the other retracting at any moment by reason of an unfavorable omen, no house is built until the cere mony is completed. Polygamy is the rule, but each Avife has her own house. They are the most tyrannical Avives in Africa and, hating each other, band together against their husband and rule him AA-ith a rod of iron. MOSAIC WORK. How raintinf Are Reproduced In the Little Colored Squares. In order to reproduce a painting In mosaic the artists or artisans take a flat sheet of iron of the same size as the painting surrounded by a border about an inch high. This receptacle is then filled with plaster so as to obtain a perfectly flat surface. On this the outlines of the figures are drawn. The plaster Is then cut up into small squares, which are to be removed and gradually replaced by as many small squares of mosaic of the same size. In the holes left empty when the plas ter is taken away a neAV plaster made of traAertine dust, lime and linseed oil is poured. After three days this new plaster acquires the necessary consistency, and in this the artist sticks the little col ored squares. When all the surface of the plaster is covered with these colored pieces of mosaic the whole is washed Avith sand and water until it becomes quite smooth. The colored pieces are made of mixtures of dif ferent minerals, like arsenic, lead, glass, etc. These minerals are placed in an oven, and the different colors are obtained by the different degrees of heat, and as many as 28,000 various colors can be obtained. How AVood LnHt In a Dry Flaee. In situat.ons so free from moisture that we may practically call them dry the durability of timber is almost un limited. The roof of Westminster hall is more than 450 years old. In Sterling castle are carvings in oak Avell pre served over 300 years of age. Scotch fir has been found in good condition after a known use of 300 years, and the trusses of the roof of the basilica of St. Paul's, Rome, were sound and good after a thousand years of service. A Chinese Seeret. "When a Chinaman wants to have a tooth drawn he feels no nervous ap prehension of pain, for the excellent reason that he knows his dentist will not inflict any. It is said. The latter simply rubs a secret powder over the aching tooth. After about five min utes the patient sneezes, and the tooth falls out. Many attempts have been made by Europeans to get some of this mysterious poAvder, but no one has 5et succeeded. Pin eli e All Round. , She My neAV goAvn is just lovely. It's a perfect tit. He Satisfied on that point, eh? She Yes. I knoAV it's a good fit because it pinches me so. He Well, it doesn't pinch you half as much as it does my pocketbook. Phil adelphia Tress. Ilefore and After. Friend Why do you call your work a trade Instead of an art? Artist Oh, I did call it an art before I began to utake a living at it. Illustrated Bits. ,.
