HILL DODGES j THE LIMELIGHT Great Railroad Builder Get.* Nor*" When Asked to Takl for X Newspapers. CHICAGO, June —The Record Herald today says: ••James J. Hill is cultivating a shrinking disposition. He arrived in Chicago from St. Paul yesterday, had his private car switched over to the Erie and departed for New York Shortly afterward. When asked to give his views on the condition of the country generally h e shied like a green filly at a piece of paper in the road. " 'No, no,' he said hastily; 'I want to keep out" of the newspapers en tirely. I do not want to be in the limelight any more." •• "This is so sadden,' was suggest ed. "Mr. Hill shot a suspicious glance at the reporter aud retorted: •■ fool newspapers are t~> blame.' now?' was ask.d. " "They go and print something which they know to be true and in favor of the railroads, and then some darn fool editorial writer puts a piece in th c paper poking fun at the railroad man who said it. 1 suppose " "What do you think of the threatened crop shortage?'

DARED TO LET COP SEE HIM KISS GIRL Then to Rub It in New York Man Sas6<*d Policeman, Who Final ly Arrested Him. NEW YORK, June 12.—Becau3e he kissed his best girl and let a po liceman see him do it, James F. Higgins faced Magistrate Whitman the other day, answering to a charge of disorderly conduct. Questioned by the magistrate Higgins 3aid: "Yes, your honor, I did kiss a girl. But I know her, 3he's a friend of mine—she's my best friend, and I don't see any harm in kissing her if we both feel like It." "I am going to let you go this time," said the magistrate, "but in the future do not ki3s on the streets. It is not right." Policeman Saple ton, of the East Thirty-fifth Street station, appeared as the complainant. The girl had no complaint to make. The arrest was made on Second ave nue, near Twenty-eighth "street, a neighborhood is not uncommon. Hig gins sassed the cop when warned. Growing Flowers In Winter. A long run of dark days in winter Is bad for tbe florists. It matters little how cold the weather is, provided there In sunshine, for tbe heat can al ways be maintained to the proper point, and with sunshine flowers will bloom Just as freely when the ther mometer shows an outdoor tempera ture of zero as at the freezing point, though of course more money must be spout for coal. But when, day after day, for weeks at a time, clouds over hang the sky, nothing will grow as It should. The carnation buds develop slowly until they are half open and wait for sunshine, and if it does not come in four or live days the blooms decay. So also It is with callas and roses. They will open halfway, then, without sunlight, will quickly spoil.— St. Louis Globe-Democrat. How They Dance In Hungary. With the exception of the Spauiards there is no nation in Europe that dances like the Hungarians. They love it with a love that amounts to a passion. They not only go in for it heart and soul, but they will dance on anything, in any sort of weather. A paddock, a village street, a stable yard, the earth en floor of a wayside csarda—it is ail the same to them. Not the scorching sun or the whirling dust or the pelting rain or the falling snow will deter them. They all dance beautifully too. It seems to be in their blood. Customs of Brittany. Brittany alone, of all the provinces of France, seems to have preserved its types and Individuality. To be Breton Is by no means to be French. The old men to this day chatter in the Celtic tongue. The Breton mother when not at work In the fields sits In the door of her cottage plying the distaff and recit ing the old legends and quaint folk songs to the white coifed baby beside her. The Breton woman still wears the costume of her mothers before her and is satisfied in it. Too Heavy to Keep. Magistrate (to prisoner)— Miserable being, not only have you robbed your employer of tbe fruits of long years of labor, but you have dissipated it in the wildest extravagance. Prisoner— That is true, but I couldn't keep the stolen money; it weighed too heavily on my conscience — Loisirs. Try This. Bill had a billboard. Bill also had a board bill. The board bill bored liili so that Bill sold the billboard to pay his board bill. So after Bill sold his billboard to pay his board bill the board bill no longer bored Bill. The Cause of Snoring. This is not for you. lieeause you never snore. No one ever does suore himself. It is always the other fellow. But you can read this aud then tell that guilty other fellow how to break himself of Lis bad habit, for snoring is merely a bad habit and as such enn be overcome. It is caused pri marily by Improper breathing—that is, breathing through the mouth instead of through the nostrils—so. first of all, care should be taken during waking hours to breathe correctly, 'the habit once formed of keeping the mouth as firmly closed as possible, ho will be less likely to sleep with it open. Then see that your troublesome snorer has a proper pillow. He should sleep with his head as flat as possible, for If his head is pushed forward and neck bent the tongue drops back against the soft palate and forms an obstruc tion which makes all the unmusical sounds we hear when the air is forced past it.—St. James' Gazette. WHAT SCHOOL? i an an II MIL Young Confederate, Returning Home Unscathed, Shot Dead by His Father. PERHAPS tbe saddest story of the civil war is that told of a Confederate family directly after the great conflict. Mrs. Chestnut mentions it in her "Diary From Dixie," and a mau who heard It at first hand tells it as follows iv the New York Sun: "The soldier had enlisted In Georgia from his home, where his father re mained uudisturbed durlug the strug gle. The young man bad fought througb the war without a scratch, save a slight wound which bad left him partially deaf. This affliction he had never referred to in any of his letters. "After the surrender he communi cated with his father, saying he would reach home on or a certain date. Travel then was uncertain, aud he was not positive as to when he would ar rive. His father prepared to receive him. • Believing that his sou would come as promised, he arranged a spread such as the conditions of hia surrouudiugs at that time would per mit He had brought out his best plates that had been secreted for a loug time, and with gold which had been exhumed he bought such delica cies and substantiate as the southern market at that time afforded. "As many of the old time neighbors as were living in the vicinity were In vited to the home coming of the re turning soldier. The ex-Confederate arrived on the old plantation the night before the earliest date he had men tioned in his last letter. It was late, iot'TH, being deaf, iube no axr-LY. mi.l his father and the family had re tired. Ihe only creature on the old place thai seemed to lie awake was a dog. As the soldier entered the gate of tbe grounds the dog began barking. The sound aroused the owuer of tbe manor. The country was overrun at the time with stragglers, some of whom had not hesitated to commit burglary. The father of the boy arose. He stood in his doorway with his shot gun aud challenged the approaching stranger, as he supposed. "Tbe young man, being deaf, made no reply, but continued on his way. The man In the doorway raised his gun and fired. The stranger fell dead. The father summoned his family and the few remaining servants or fhe plantation. An investigation was held, and the tragic truth was revealed. "The father, of course, was Inconsol able. He returned to his house, while the sen-ants carried the lifeless form of bis boy to the home that had been awaiting his coming. The next day the invited guests began to arrive. The father had given orders that the trag edy should not be mentioned until he himself told it "I do not know what explanation was made to the guests as to the absence of bim whom they were to honor, but after the repast they were told, and then they filed past the dead. The body had been wrapped in the flag for which the brave young man had fought. The community was used to funerals. Every private burial ground had a grave made by the unhappy war. but no funeral like this had ever tak en place in the vicinity, and I doubt If It ever had a counterpart." A Story of General Lee. When the great war was over and defeat had come to the armies Lee had led, he was visiting tbe bouse of a friend In Richmond. With that love of children that always characterized him, the old hero took upon his knee a fair haired boy. The proud mother, to please her guest, asked the child, "Who is General Lee?" Parrotlike the expected answer came, "Tbe great Vir ginian who was a patriot true to his native state." And then came the ques tion, "Who is General Scott?" and the reply, "A Virginian who was a traitor to his country." Putting down the child and turning to the mother, the genera! said: "Mad am, you should not teach your child such lessons. I will not listen to such talk. General Scott is not a traitor fie was true to his convictions of duty as I was to mine."—From Hilary A. Herbert's Address Over the Graves of the Confederate Dead In Arllnatwe. Bidding For Immigrants. Although the plan of assisting immi gration recently adopted by South Car olina has met with criticism and even official opposition, some system of that kind may be found advisable for the whole country if we want Immigrants worth having. Other countries are competing, and they are not particular as to methods. Last year the emigration from the British islands to Canada was about 40 per cent more than in the previous year. The Australian colonies got a 25 per cent increase in 1900, but the Unit ed States received only 20 per cent more than in 1905. Canada and Aus tralia are urgent in seeking immi grants. The South American republics, notably Brazil and Chile, are spending government mouey liberally to stimu late immigration and are working In Hungary and In Italy through govern ment agents. All of these countries have advantages for new settlers, and there is no disputing the fact that with government encouragement and assistance Europeans may do better north or south of us than they can here. In that case we may soon get nothing but leavings after competing countries have taken their pick. The Building Boom. It appears that building activities are not confined to this country. Last year the importations of building wood into the British isiands increased 20 per cent over those of 1905. It is some times argued that when prices get too high here foreign competition will step in and pull them % down. Canada, Sweden and Russia profited by the in creased demand for building material In the United Kingdom in 1900. The boom of building is not a mere spasm. Prosperity everywhere fur nishes the means, and new condition furnish the incentive.

Man's knowledge is ever improving, and his environment must improve In order to keep pace with the march of Ideas. It la a hope ful sign that people are not only build ing new structures, but Insist upon having them better and stronger than heretofore. Concerning the many and often sarl ons railway accidents of late the Rail way Age says that publicity is needed as a cure and complains mildly of the' general policy of railroad managers which leads them to conceal all acci dents wheu they can. It suggests that they give out full accounts of all, whether they result seriously or not. England is reported to be startled at the bold demand of tbe colonial repre sentatives for freedom for the colonies »■ as independent nations. But in tbeae advanced times parent countries can not expect flourishing and lusty chil dren to stay tied to the mother coun try's apron strings. All that Andrew Carnegie needs to till his cup of happiness to the brim is the assurance that some day his fea tures will adorn a United States post age stamp of popular denomination. Cubans are importing <;ement from this country extensively, an indication that they want something on the island which the West India hurricanes can not rip to pieces. Oue of the publishers advertises a novel that Is "a hair raiser." Some thing in the nature of brain elevating fiction would be welcome just at this time. It is not long since that Mr. Taft was re-rsirded as one of the few men for whom a plncld future was absolutely secure. The Last Match Saved Them. The ship had lain becalmed in a trop ica I sea for three days. Not a breath of air stirred the mirrorlike surface of the sen or the limp sails that hung from the yards like drapery carved in stone. The captain resolved 4o wait no longer. He piped up all hands on deck and requested the passengers to also come forward. "I must ask all of you," he said, "to give me every match that you have." Wonderingly the passengers and crew obeyed. The captain carefully arranged the matches in his hands as each man handed him bis store until all had been collected. Then he threw thera all overboard but one, drew a cigar from his pocket and, striking the soli tary match on the mainmast, endeav ored to light it. Iv an instant a furi ous gale swept over the deck, extin guished the match and filled the sails, aud the good ship Mary Anu sped through the waves on her course.— Pearson*! Weekly. . The Cod's Bill of Fare. An interesting exhibit in the South Kensington museum, Loudon, illus trates the omnivorous nature of the CO Fa diet. Among the fish falling a prey to its voracious maws we note the young of the herring, dab, whiting and sand eel. Shrimps and young lob stt rs also form an important item in the cod's menu. The strangest part of the cod's diet perhaps is the sea mouse, whose thick covering of bristles might be thought to render it unwelcome to any stomach. Large whelks and shells of whelks with their indwelling hermit crabs are also largely devoured. From its partiality to mollusks, in fact, the cod may become an assistant to the shell collector. Woodward in his "Man ual of the Molluscs" remarks that "some good northern seashells bare been rescued unbroken from the stom ach of the cod."—London Globe.
