The tradition j that Friday washing is unlucky is as nni-i versal as the idea that pretty nearly everything else is ill fated that is under-1 taken on that dav. from turning a bed to cutting the Pails. Many an old washerwoman will teM yniu that if she washes a sh-et on Friday site is washing her own winding sheet in other words, that she n ill die daring the year. And there is an old proverb that she who washes on a Friday wishes her husband's death! Good Friday is. of course, the worst of all. for the water is "the blood of the Saviour." On non-forbidden days it is easy to make the washing operations swift and successful by tying two pins together in the form of a cross and dropping them into the tub. Nearly all the superstitious of the old washerwoman have a religions origin, and in some parts of France and in southwestern England running water is never used during the week before Christmas because Our Lady uses it then Hudson, who will occupy it n heme. Mr. Yeaw has owned and ceded the place more than "0 years. Marriage Intentions were fiteil Satur day in tkeohiceof Town Clerk V. S. Hop kins by Charies 11.

Is our corresponi will be nked to a wedding at an early date. If she makes her apron wet she will marry a drunkard and if she should place a man's shirt in the tub accidentally upside down it is a sign tiiat the owner is i going to die. It may be added that it is a good omen to meet a washerwoman carrying clean clothes when one is starting on a journey. but it bodes ill if she is carrying them unwashed. Oddly enough, many of these traditions have beer, handed on. so that one meets them today in one form or an other among the workers in the up-to-date steam laundry almost as often as among the washerwomen of old.

The old stone walls and ruins at Quindaro are all that remains of a struggle of New Englund emigrants to found there a "future great metrop olis." Kansas City and Leavenworth were either , neutral or were dominat ed by southern sympathizers. The New EnIanders wanted a "port of entry" of their own. So the town of Quindaro was built up rapidly with a large hotel, great warehouses and a steamboat landing. During the Civil war, however, the men all went to fight. When they returned the Union Pacific was building west through the Kaw valley.. and a little later the Han nibal bridge was constructed, forever making. Kansas City the "port of entry."-.
