M TIM'S NEW D1VBMSIOSS. Proposition to Havs 13 Months In n Year From 1800 On, It is suggested that on January 1, 1900, a new division of the year into ttiirteen months he instituted. It is claimed that this is not so preposter ous as roost people would bo likely to consider it at tho first thought. If such a division were made the first twelve months would have just twen tv-eight days, or four weeks each, and the new month twentv-niue, to make 385, and thirty in leap years. After a few days there would be no need to refer to calendars, as the same day of the week would have the same date through the year. If January 1 were, say Monday, every Monday would be the 1st, 8th, loth and 22d; every Tuesday the 2d, 9th, lGth and 2.‘!d, and so throughout the year. The changes of the moon would be on aliout the same dates through the year, and many calculations, like interest, dates of maturing notes, Kaster Sun day and many other important dates would tie simplified. Although the present generation would have to tig uro new dates for birthdays and all legal holidays except New Year would be on different dates, yet the gain would tie more than the loss, as that would lie permanent, and the objec tion trifling, says the Scientific Amer ican. The pro(K>sed change certainly has the merit of novelty, and it is just to say that the arguments in favor of the metric system on the ground of utility apply with considerable force in the present case. We fear, however, that the objections on the grounds of senti ■nent, which are strong in the matter of weights and measures, would be even stronger against the proposed re vision of our methods of computing tune. After I'alatt Uoda. This humorous sketch, by Carl K. Boyle, secured the prize of $100 offered by the New York Sunday World for the beet campaign joke: There has been much bolting this year, and hence the story told by an Indiana speaker to illustrate the chas ing away of voters after false gods is particularly good. It does not matter to which party the speaker belonged. According to the chronicle, a naan was one day driving a number of calves along a country road, when he met another farmer driving a bull. The animal was angry and going at a terrific speed, with the farmer mounted on a horse in hot pursuit. The calves gave surprised bleats, turned around, stuck their tails straight out behind them and started after the bull. In vain the owner of the younger animals tried to stop them. His yells were unheeded, and soon the bull and the calves disappeared up the road in a cloud of dust. The farmer stopped and mopped his face, mad clear through. Then he yelled after the vanishing bovines: "Go it, ye dufn fools! Foller that bull clear out of the State! Ye’ll find what a mistake ye have made when supper time comes.” -^ X«w Breed ef Ntaeep Tbe Agricultural Department of the University of California is raising a new kind of sheep that will mean much to the wool and meat markets It is the result of the cross breeding of Persian and merino. Experiments along the same lines, though not so complete, were conducted by George Washington with marked advantage. Two years ago three full-blooded rains were received from the Persian Government and experiments were commenced in cross breeding. The offspring resulted in a variety admir ably adapted to the California climate, showing wool and meat above the quality of any yet obtained. They were colored white, reddish brown and black. The wool was of the texture between the Persian and merino, the average length being eight inches. Recently the first sample of the wool w ns offered for sale in San Fran cisco and brought an average of 4 cents on the usual price for a pound. The new species attain a tremendous »i*e and are very broad-hacked. I THE URKAT US1DOL4 NIOIIT. A Vara That Uaa (arrlad (be W hole Kail. During one of the meetings of the Board of Aldermen under the Tweed administration, the representative of a portion of one of the North end wards arose, and was recognized by the Presi dent as Mr. O’Day. "Mr. President,” began Mr. O’Day, "I have lately been traveling in Eu rope and during my peregrinations I visited the noble city of Vanice, the queen, sir, av the Adriatic; the scene, Mr. President, of Mr. Shakespeare’s noble production, the ‘Merchant of Vanice,’ the remarkable city av dun geons and palaces. Sir, I was partic ularly sthruck wid some of the features of Vanation life. I niver in me loife beheld anything like the gondolas av Vanice. They are beautiful. Well, I thought, being an Ainerikin citizen, that I would give the benefit av me observations abroad to me native city on me rethurn and I made a study of the gondolas fur that purpose. Sir, after much consideration, I have coine to tiie conclusion that the gondolas wud be a pleasant picture in our Cen tral Park. The children wud be de lighted wid ’em, and they are not dan gerous at all. Therefore, sir, I move you that twinty-five gondolas be iin ported to beautify and adorn our no ble plisure grounds.” "Mr. O’Day sat down, upon which another member of the Council arose, fie was recognized by the President as Mr. O’Shay. Mr. President, began Mr. O’Shav, <)i have listened wid great attention to the very instructive and intelligent remarks of me friend from the North end ward, and have been very much imprissed wid dent. But, sir, while I am in favor of the gondolas, I cannot forgit that we are sint to this honor able chamber to look afther the inter ests of the citizens av this modern Athens, and to administer public af fair e<iuinomically. I was sent tiere on an eijuinomical platform, and 1 have always been an advocate of re* triochment. Therefore, sir, to be con sistent wid me past reputation, f move an amindmint to ine friend's motion, namely, as follows: "Kesolved, That instead of twinty five gondolas we import only two gon dolas—a male and faraale—and let na ture take its course.” BelIIua on Itae 1900 Issue. Frank Sinclair is a sound money farmer near i’onca, Neb. He was de lighted with the result of the election, and came into tcwn to celebrate. On the street he met M. B. Hanson, a neighbor and a Bryanite. Hanson was not so well pleased with the con dition of affairs ss .Sinclair, but be w as game, says a dispatch to tbs Chicago Times-Herald. Silver, be declared, was bound to coma—the election of 190C would bring it in with a whoop. Sinclair laughed. “You can laugh,” said Hanson, “but I’ll just go you $100 that the next President is a silver man and that the silver issue will elect him. We can deposit the money in s bank and the man that wins draws it out when the 1900 returns are in.” Sinclair lugged out a roll of bills, and the two repaired to the nearest bank, where each deposited $100, with instructions to the cashier to turn it aver to the winner four years from now. The sum will draw 5 per cent interest. * hey uoi Ho Hom o One of the alleged dynamiters who was recently released from an English prison says he did not hear one item )f news from the outside world in all the years of his confinement. He did not even know that Parnell was dead. In our prisons, which have the same rules of silence and abolute seclusion, the inmates learn everything that is going on both within and without the prison, by a system of signals which defies the watchfulness of the guards. Either English prisons are better gov erned than ours, or else the inmates of English prisons are less shrewd and less sly than our convicts.—New York World. _ The A«lvi»utHg* of Trousers. “1 took my little boy out of kilts yesterday," said a well known Meth odist preacher, "and he was dressed in his first suit of knickerbockers. The little fellow was as proud as a new President and strutted about in all his fanciful importance. Finally, he turned toward me after carefully sur veying his Bmall trousers: “‘Papa,’ he remarked,‘now I can stan’ on niv head wivout bein’ ashamed before the ladies, can’t I —New Orleans Times-Democrat. RRs Wouldn't Walt. “Blanche, dear," said the watchful aunt to her niece, “don’t you think that Kred spends too much money upon you?” relates Harper's Bazar. "Do you think so, auntie.” “Indeed, I do, Blanche. I’ve been noticing, and I do think he's really extravagant. You ought to check him, and tell him to save his money. You will need a good deal when you go to housekeeping, and it is far better for him to put in the bank the money he is now spending on carriage rides and luncheons and tickets to this thing and that than be squandering it. Think over the matter a minute or two, dear, and you will see it a> I see it.” “Oh, I’ve thought about it already, auntie. I’d take your advice if I were absolutely certain that we shall be married ; but I’ve been engaged' be fore auntie, and I don’t intend to ad vise a young man again to economue for some other girl’s benefit.” Origin or Tliaiikagivlag. The following is warranted to be the correct history of the origin of Thanks giving Day: Once at autumn in the early days of the colonies a severe visaged old Puritan arose in his pew and proposed the usual day of fasting and prayer. There had been an abundant harvest and the barns and cellars were filled to overflowing. A less severe member of the congrega tion, who evidently enjoyed the good things of life, offered as an amend ment that, in view of the abundant harvests and the other blessings of Providence, they have instead a day of festival and thanksgiving. The amendment carried and that was the beginning of our annual day of Thanks giving, A Woman'* Kjrr. Modern writers have some startling forms of expression of the female eye. “The glare, the stare, the sneer, the invitation, the defiance, the denial, the consent, the glance of love, the flash of rage, the sparkling of hope, the languishment of softness, the squint of suspicion, the fire of jeal ousy, the luster of pleasure, but of all the tantalizing expressions of this window of the human soul is that de signed to leave poor man in a condi tion of uncertainty, doubt, often de spair, until he is raised from the slough or plunged still deeper in the mire.” I'nt Till* Oat aud Keep It. The Scientific American gives this recei|>e which the whole world should know: At the first indications of diphtheria in the throat make the room close, then take a tin cup and pour into it an equal quantity of tar and turpentine, then bold the cup over the Are so as to All the room with fumes. The patient on inhaling the fumes will cough out the membranous matter and diphtheria will pass off. The fumes of the tar and turpentine loosen the throat and thus afford the relief that has baffled the skill of phy sicians. A Plmnpsi nf Ossa Vfiinr* An exchange believes that the new woman intends to wear pants and hatch her offspring in an incubator. She will give milk out of a bottle with a Jersey label on it. She will lecture and ride astride and never marry un less she wants to. She will have her own ‘‘bible’’ and will fight man until he is really extinct, and when the world comes to an end, and Gabriel comes to toot his final horn, he will only find a lot of red-headed old maids riding bicycles through the lonesome world, with no berries in the patch, or fruit on the trees, no babies in the cradle, and the man in the moon a howling maniac. Ways and Means, “How,” demanded the advocate of equal suffrage, impaBBionately, “are women to be induced to stop and re flect?” “Put up mirrors.” They searched for him who had spoken but found him not, nor knew they aught of him except that he must be a supporter of the ancient regime and an observer of human nature.— Detroit Tribune. How to Advertise. Here is a straight tip from a newspa per called Brains: “There’s only one right way to advertise and that is to hammer your name, your location and your business bo constantly, so insist ently, and so thoroughly into the peo ple's heads that if they walk in their sleep they will instinctively turn their steps towards your store.” Curing the last week Idaho, Montana, North and South Dakota and Wyoming have been experiencing bllxzard weather. thk rumiKtL vote;.
