Every man in the various posses searching for the escaped murder is armed and ready to fight, for it is known that Kabat will not give up he would wreck vengeance upon those alice. He has made the assertion that who were responsible for his convic tion, and from this threat those who are now searching for him are ready.

LA FOLLETTE TO HOLD SEAT Will Not Run as Independent Candi date For Governor of Wisconsin. MADISON, WIS. Senator La Follette telegraphed Lloyd Jones of Madison that he would not be an in dependent candidate for governor against Emmanuel Philipp, Republican nominee, and Judge John C. Karel, Democratic nominee, as requested by a conference of Progressive Republic ans in Milwaukee last week. He said the nomination of a Repub lican candidate for governor was by a minority of the electors and in his opinion involves a complete reversal of the established policy of the state. For that reason he favored the plac ing o f an independent candidate in the field. He does not believe, however, that these facts warrant him in resign ing from the senate to run for gov ernor. It is probable former State Sen ior J. J. Blaine of Boscobel will be the independent candidate for gov ernor. PLYMOUTH MAYOR EXPIRES C. W.

At a place called Kotron. on the French Ivory Coast, the natives be lieve that to eat or destroy a turtle would mean death to the guilty one or sickness among the family. The fetich men, of which there are plenty, declare that years ago a man went to sea fish ing. In the night his canoe was thrown upon the beach empty. Three days aYterward a turtle came ashore at the same place with the man mi its back alive and well. Since that time they have never eaten or destroyed one of that species, although they en joy other species. If one happens now to be washed ashore there is a great commotion in the town. First, the women sit down and start singing and beating sticks; next a small piece of white cloth (color must be white) is placed on the tur tle’s back. Food is then prepared and placed on the cloth,- generally plan tains, rice oil. Then, amid a lot more singing, dancing and antics of the fetich people, it is carried back into the sea and goes on its way re joicing. Inexhaustible Rome. “Rome is wonderful.” said a man fa miliar with the historic city. “Rome is inexhaustible. There is a story that describes Rome well. “The pope was giving audience. He said to a lady in black: “ ‘How long have you been in Rome?’ “ ‘Three weeks.’ the lady answered. “ ‘Ah,’ said the pope, ‘then you have seen Rome!’ “And he turned to an American mer chant and asked: “ ‘And you. sir, how long have you been in Rome?’ “ ‘Three months.’ the American re plied. “ ‘You. then, have begun to see Rome,” said the pope. And he next accosted an elegant woman with gray hair. “ ‘How long, madam,’ he asked, ‘have you been here?’ “ ‘Three years,’ the woman answered. “The pope smiled faintly. “ ‘You,’ he said, ‘have not yet begun to see Rome.’ ’’—New York Herald. Our True Moles. In this country there are five recog nized groups of true moles, two of which are confined to the Pacific coast and the other three are distributed over tbe section east of the one hun dredth meridian extending from Can ada to the gulf of Mexico. In the lat ter districts and in the greater part of Pennsylvania, New York and New England the common mole occurs with the star nosed mole and Brewer’s mole. The mole is so seldom seen even by those who are familiar with its work that it is often confused with other small creatures, particularly the shrew, the mole or meadow mouse and the pocket gopher. However, it can be readily distinguished by its stout, short front limbs ending in broad, rounded hands witb palms turned outward. It has a rather elongated body, close, plushlike fir, a pointed snout and a short tail. Neither eyes nor ears are in evidence. It is a creature of strict ly subterranean habits. Wisdom of Father. Brown, who lived in the suburbs, re turned home late one evening with a package which he deposited on the dining room table. His wife, naturally curious, lost no time in starting to in vestigate. “What have you been buying. Jim my?” she asked, taking up the pack age and untying the string. “A cornet,” answered Jimmy. “1 have been thinking for some time”— “A cornet?’’ was the wondering in terjection of the wife. “I thought you knew better than to buy a cornet! You know very well that the man next door worries you almost to death with his.” “Yes. I know,” was the smiling re sponse. “That is the one I bought.”— Philadelphia Telegraph. Origin of Life. The scientific world is not in pos session of even one fact as to the ori gin of life nor of the origin of any thing whatever. All animals now start from very minute bodies called cells.

Some days ago a young woman call ed at the house of a prominent doctor and after discoursing on all the topics of interest of the day settled down to tell him her ailments. Among other things, she said that she was greatly troubled by a “sinking feeling.” The doctor prepared a little bottle of medicine and gave it to her with mi nute directions as to how it should be taken. The woman began to talk, but at length, after many vain efforts on his part to get rid of her. made for the door. She had just opened it when she turned and said: “Oh, doctor, what shall I do if this medicine does not cure me?” “Take the cork.” he retorted. “They say that’s good for a sinking feeling.” First Poor Laws. Until well within the nineteenth cen tury the poor men depended almost entirely upon private benevolence. By statute of Edward 111., 1349, it was enacted that none should give alms to a beggar able to work. By the com mon law beggars were to be sustained by “parsons, rectors of churches and parishioners, so that none should die for default of sustenance.” and by Richard 111. proprietors were obliged to distribute a yearly sum to the poor. The origin of the present poor law in England is referred to the time of Elizabeth, 1601.
