That's the Tip From a Presbyterian Official. n "It is true that it is hard to get good executives to fill the $10,000 positions," said the Rev. William H. P. Roberts, clerk of the Presbyterian church, today. "I know of six high priced pastorates that have been vacant for two years because men of sufficient ability cannot be found to fill them. "The lack of good executives is true in all departments of business and all vocations. The thing that is wanted both in church and State is executive ability." Doctor Roberts was speaking apropos of the statement of Alba B. John son before the foreign reaerai relations commission that there are plenty of $10,000 places, but a lack of men to fill them.?Philadelphia Public Ledger. "All Great Men Drink; I do." Milwaukee, Wis., July 20.?Victor L. Berger, a former Socialist congressman, was a witness before the State commission investigating conditions here, Friday. He declared that drink had nothing to do with prohibition and then electrified his hearers oy declaring that all great men drank. He differed with Rose Perdue, who declared that economics had nothing to do with going wrong. Asked howhe defined prostitution, he said: "When woman sells her body for dress, automobiles, anything." "If I had my way no girl or boy under twenty-one years would be per mitted to drink, and I am a man to take a drink," he said. w Miss Perdue, best known Jocal social w<^rker and newspaper woman, claimed parental neglect was one of the greatest causes for girls taking :o the forbidden way, other causes being lack of knowledge and of morals, neglect of law, lack of respect of law, maner of dress, ignorance of how to iress, and freedom of barrooms, palm gardens and cafes. She said that housing conditions had much to do with the downfall of young girls. Park Buffalo Increases Rapidly. "Buffalo are increasing in the Yellowstone national park at a remarkable rate compared with a few years ago," observed H. F. Jaynes, a Gardner, Mont., business man. "Four or five years ago there werenot more than forty or fifty in the park; today there is a herd of more than 200 and they are continuing to multiply satisfactorily. There is not much danger, as once feared, that the buffalo is going to become extinct. rh#~park buffalo are in a manner becoming domesticated. A 'man on lorseback can ride among the animals without fear, but, of course, it would be dangerous to go among them om foot, just as it is dangerous to go into a herd of steers on foot. The buffalo and steers look upon a man on a hnrsp as another animal. "It is the same with the bear and other animals in the national park; they are becoming used to civilization, while at the same time enjoying in a large measure their natural environments. Nobody pays any attention to the bear. They will not atack a person if left alone, but if annoyed, especially in the case of the she-bear with cubs, the person bothering the animal is likely to be knocked down. "For some reson the black-tail deer have migrated from the park in large numbers. Probably 500 of these animals left the Yellowstone in the last year or two and the hunters in the adjoining country had a fine time killing them. The porcupines have the same habit of leaving the park on occasions, only they return after a few months outside. The deer didn't come back because the hunters killed them. "Poaclifng in the park is practically unknown. The last case of poaching that I remember was in 1886, and I happened to be present when the poacher was arrested. In those days the only thing that could be done was to send the poacher out of the 1.. V.,* -nn. tVioro l'o a law which paiH, UUL uv/n ^ ? -- -- makes poaching punishable by imprisonment. "It is a mistake to believe that more foreigners visit the park than Americans," aded Mr. Jaynes. "Last year, there were about 25,00(J tourists and they were mostly Americans. Our people have a high appreciation of the wonders of their own country, though I must say there is a notable absence of wealthy persons who go through the park.?The Washington Post. A Parallel Case.

Nobody ever drove the fairies out of Ireland, and nobody ever will, for that matter. The Emerald Isle is sans snakes but not sans the "wee folk," for the sturdy citizens of Donegal yet will relate the doings of the sprites who reward good and punish evil with quite as much avidity as they did hundreds of years ago. The little folks whom the more stolid Britishers insist are but creatures of Celtic imagination, are peculiar elves. Few there are who have seen them, and the few have done so only when the- moon was in the right phase or on some holiday in the elfdom when, the legend goes, the fairies are visable to mortal eyes and even may be captured if you but snip ] their shadows. "Auld sod"?Irish many of them? are firm in the faith that the "wee folk" forecast joys and sorrows and that they keep away the wicked banshee and otherwise protect the household of their favorites. When Michael McFaul, a farmer of Clonmany, county of Donegal, missed recently from its hiding place some $1,500 he had saved as a preliminary to embarking upon the sea of matrimony, he never once doubted but that the incident was a warning from "wee folk" that they did not look kindly upon his suit. The police, however, were less inclined to the theory of elfish warning and when a young woman employed at the McFaul household tried in a neighboring village to cash some large bank notes, she was arrested and convicted of the theft. The McFauls refuse to accept the loss in other than a philantropic ?fJll holiovo the little folks IllUuU auu DUU vvmvv V..W of the wood chose that manner of expressing disapproval of a marriage which would bring no happiness to the family. "Shoestring Bill A Queer Character. "Shoestring Bill," one of Wall street's quaint characters for more than 25 years, has disappeared. Those who know him well say that he is dead, but none is able to tell the time and place of his last moments, and a canvass of the hospitals where he would most likely be taken in case of a (fatal illness produced no infor- j mation. Known in the financial district by the soubriquet which characterized his maner of obtaining a livelihood, "Shoestring Bill's" right name was Jacob Schwartz and his last known place of residence was at-36 Frankfort street, says the New York Tribune. He had been suffering from tuberculosis for several months and his friends say if he has not already succumbed to the ravages of white plague that it can be only a question of days, perhaps hours. Born in Lima, Peru, of Hebrewparents, the man who was so well known to Wall street, according to his own narration, come to this country when but a lad of three years old. His early life was clouded in mystery. In Harlem he would have been known as an "old clothes" vender, but his operations in Wall street also included lending small sums to stock exchange messenger boys rates of interest which, if they were charged by Russell Sage, would have been termed usurious. From whatever source, "Shoestring Bill" accumulated a fortune, estimated anywhere between $30,000 and $50,000. ^ "He never spent a cent," said one of his acquaintances, "so every dollar he made was so much clear profit. I think his death, if he is dead, was due chiefly to his unwillingness to provide himself with even the bare necessities of life. "While apparently much adverse to the use of water for bathing pur pOSGS, SnOGStriHg Dill wad uuc ui iuc smartest Jews I ever met. To my knowledge he owned two flat houses. He was an active real estate speculator and must have made most of his money this way, with the original capital he accumulated from .the sale of old clothes and hats and lending a dollar here and there to the Wall street messenger boys." With every appearance of a "hobo" "Shoestring Bill" was a great reader, especially on political subjects. He wrote many letters to the newspapers under the name of Ward and displayed a keen -intelligence on the various developments of the day. His attitude was invariably that of the critic. He was hostile to the policies of the late Mayor Gaynor, as well as to other municipal. State and national leaders. That "Shoestring Bill" had a passion for classical music was evidenced by the fact that he was said to be a constant attendant at the opera, but he always sat in the cheapest seat he could buy.

As we sat on the deck, beneath the minaret of the mosque, the skies slowly turned from orange to lilac and purple of night, throwing a strange pink light- over the city's buildings, writes Archie Bell, in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The minosa trees and date palms became black and great white cranes, seemingly knowing that their wings had an appropriate background, circles over our heads, over the deep azure river and over the many white-sailed dohabeahs that were floating along in the breezeless night, propelled by rowers who were chanting weirdly as they tugged at the oars. Dimly, we could see the blackdraped figures of numberless women approach the river's brink and we know that the splashes in the water were caused by the dropping of their heavy jugs, which they twirl around till they are filled, after which they raise them laboriously to their heads and skip away up the hanks and disappear in the darkness of the night. The sounds of the city ceased and all was quiet. All but the plaintive day of the piper who must have been somewhere not far off on the bank of the river. It seemed that he was playing the love song of Larbi of Beni-Mora. It was monotonous and drowsy and invoked sleep. In the morning before dawn I heard the boys pulling the stake near my window. I had fallen asleep to native music, and now I was awakened by their song. As we started up the river, the clarion call of the muezzin rang out from the minaret. For good .Mohammedans it means that a new had begun?but for the infidel Americans, there were several additional hours of sleep. Wild Hog Hunt in Anaerson loudij. To tell'an Anderson man that there was a hunt for a wild boar in Anderson county last week would make him feel like you were trying to tell him a fish story, but it is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. The hog was originally wild and was captured in the mountains of North Carolina and was brought to Pendleton some years ago. At Pendleton, this boar escaped from the farmers that had him in charge and went to the woods with a companion. The other hog was killed sometime ago with a shotgun and a small hunt was then started after the big fellow who was known to be in the woods near Pendleton, but that hunt resulted in a failure and the boar had not been seen again until this week. When it was reported in Pendleton and the Wild Hog section that the old boar had returned to the city there was a large crowd of men and boys, with more dogs and horses got together and started on the trail of the hog. They trailed him to his stamping ground on 18-mile creek. The hog gave them a day of sport and led them up and down the creek for about 27 miles and thqn gave the party the slip and went'off by himself for the night. After having chased the hog for a whole day and then being dodged so cleverly, the party was determined to get his Hogship the next day. So with some more men and more dogs, the crowd left on the second day's hunt. There is no sport in the world like hunting for a wild hog. Especially when the hog chooses to be hunted and is willing to let the hunters get close enough on him to moke the thing interesting. The hog in question had a regular schedule mapped out and after dragging the entire party over the biggest part of Pendleton township and part of the Wild Hog section, he left for Seneca river. Arriving at the river on time, and with the procession in be hind him, he gave them some aquatic sports. He swam across the river and back a couple of times to get cooled off and then started to do some real running. The party followed as best they could and chased and raced for half a day in that part of the world. One of the party took an unfair advantage with the old fellow and shot at him. It so happened that the shot hit the hog and as the hog was tired of playing with them and they were not playing fair by shooting at him, he made up his mind to be as tough as possible. The party caught the body of the hog and skinned it. He was a big fellow and of the razorback specie. He was full grown and pretty skinny and tough. There was plenty of meat for the crowd but the old fellow was so tough that it was impossible to eat any of him. The remarkable thing about the chase is that they ran the hog for about 25 miles and when captured the hog did not make a sound. He was either dumb or resigned to his fate. The hog was as wild as was in his native state. The folks that brought him from the wilds of North Carolina had only a' few days before captured him, and after escaping aaain he lost what of civilzation he had acquired.?Peoples Advocate. r (?
