SKINS INSTEAD OF MONEY.
uf Frauklin has had no placo on
tho map for more than one hundred
years, and it may be worth
while to explain that it was the
first commonwealth created west
jf tho Alleghenies. Part of the
territory which is included is now
within tho boundaries of North
Carolina; the rest constitutes tho
state of Tennessee. Tho stato of
Franklin was organized in 1783,
by haidy sottlers who claimed that
they were uoglectedby tho govern
ment of North Carolina and by
John Sevier as governor. It had
a stormy existence of something
more than threg years. Here is
"Bo it pnacted by the General
assembly of the Btate of Franklin,
and it is hereby onaotod by tho
authority of the same, that from
tho 1st day of January, 178S, the
salaries of the officers of this commonwealth
be as follows, to-wit:
"Ilis excellency, tho governor,
per annum, 1,000 deer skins.
"His honor, the chief justice,
500 deer skins.
"Tho secretary of his excellency,
the governor, r00 raccoon
"Tho treasurer of tho stato lyO
"Ench county cldrk .'500 beaver
"Clerk of the house of commons

"Constable forsorving a warrant

Enacted into law the 18th day of
October, 1787 under tho groat seal
of tho state."
As the stato of Franklin went
out of existence March 1, 1788
this salary act was in forco for
only two months. Evening Wisconsin

fathers of the Republic
have had little sympathy
the demand for inflated official sal
aries whioh is so ofton heard at
tho present time. It was a notion
of many of the best men in tho
good old twines that the houoi of
publio oflico was an offsot for slender
pecuniary compensation; they
did not want official salaries to bo
set so high as to tempt men of mor
conary instincts to seek public po
sitiuus for private gain.

Woman With Humor.
If you consider tho list of your
friends, it will not take you long to
that the woman you like best Is
the woman with a sense of humor.
She Is thu one you think of first If you
are getting up a picnic or a card party.
If It rains or it shines. If anybody else
is cross and grumpy, the womnn with a
sense of humor can extract fuu out of
the dreariest proposition, and the first
thing you know she has set everybody
to laughing at her droll sayings and
turned defeat into a triumph, for who
cares whether vaur original plan was
carried out or not Just bo everybody
has a good time?
A sense of humor Is said to be lacking
in most women. Alas, 1 have found
this only too true! But I have noticed
that when a woman does have It the
men are the first to find It out, and all
she has to do to acquire a husband is
to pick and choose. The day of the girl
with the doll face is going out, and the
day of the girl with a senso of humor
is coming in. Harper's Bazar.
Value of lfnaaiiKe,
Massage as a treatment for tho muscles
of the face is without a rival to restore
the normal beauty of contour and
expression. No matter how many wlso
resolutions we may make for ourselves
not to pucker up the eyebrows, not to
allow these horizontal lines to form
across the forehead, not to let the
corners of the mouth droop down, etc.,
we will do them all at times In spite
of ourselves. Now, massage comes in
as n vigorous countor influence to the
ravages of time, worry or care. The
skilled manipulator can "plump up"
more tired looking facet in an hour's
treatment a day than most anything
else that is known ns a restorer of
symmetry nnd good looks. A prolonged
course of massage will render the skin
more .flexible and elacrJc than it naturally
is, nnd it becomes even finer,
softer nnd more supple under the
In everyday life in matters where
mental qualities are brought Into play
the woman, as every man Unonvs, Is
able to take care of herself. On every
occasion she- shows herself as hla
equal in intelligence and wit. To what
end, then, hi all this ado to prove that
womnn is mentally inferior to man?
No matter "what learned (professors
may sny, tho world has pretty well
made up Its mind as to the place woman
Is entitled to hold In it, and deep
treatises on the brain are not likely to
affect that opinion ho long as women
contlirue to show the abilities which
they tllsplny so freely today. Worcester
