Both ! pronounced the experience “wonder-1 ful” and were at once enthusiastically ; ready for another trip. First they ran : almost directly toward the center of the lake from the university bathhouse, j rising from the water half a mile out, ; then bore up into the teeth of an east- j erly breeze, passed on to the left by : the golf grounds, Maple Bluff and the | Mendota hospital and then back along a curve of two miles or more toward Picnic Point, and finally home to the ’varsity shore. They could wear no hats, nor would the aviator permit, them to carry handkerchiefs in hand j lest by some chance they become en- j tangled in the tiny wire cables of the operating mechanism. W. S. Heddles, father of Miss Hed- ; dies, made the trip last Tuesday. j Madison Democrat. ♦♦♦ WISCONSIN TOBACCO MARKETS I (Continued From Page /.) | \ Pennsylvania. Lancaster, Pa., Sept. 30, 1914. j This year’s tobacco crop is safe under cover, safe from hail and frost, and the growers can now reasonably figure on good returns for their season’s work. From the 14,000 acres that were out in tobacco it is conservatively estimated that the growers will receive not less than $2,500,000. It is very generally conceded that the growers will receive around ten cents for this tobacco, and a few growers have expressed the con viction that many crops would bring eleven and twelve cents. For several years the packers have stopped what was regarded as the evil practice of t buying in the field, when one general price was paid for pretty much the en-! tire crop. The buying this year will; be done after the tobacco is cured, j when the packers will be able to see , just what they are getting. While the crop is considered a particularly fine ( one, it must be admitted that much of it was shedded wher. it was not in the best condition possible. A cold snap i coming at a time when the crop was doing its best in the development line, scared great numbers of growers into j early cutting to escape an early frost. ' The cold snap this year was followed j by a considerable spell of warm weath er, but it was during a period of drought, too, which greatly hindered, the further growth of the plants. The tobacco that had ripened and was put away before the cold spell looks fine in the shed. I ♦> When the Witness Scored. Judge—“ What is your occupation, 1 my man?” Prisoner —“I am a bus driver, my lord.” Judged—“ You mean you are the driver of horses attached thereto?” Prisoner —“Yes, sir.” Judge —“You are charged with hitting this man on the face. Did you do it?” Pris- i oner—“ Certainly not!” Judge—“ What did you do, then?” Prisoner —“I hit him on the nasal organ attached there to.”—Tit-Bits. Puritan flour $1.50 at Conn’s. —Buy canning pears at Conn’s, $1.50 per bushel. Horses In Battle. The return during a battle of rider less horses to camp is an almost cer tain sign of a rout that amounts al most to annihilation. A horse may lose its trooper, but unless it is wound ed it will nearly always keep on with the rest. If the battle is lost and the army is driven from the field in confusion the owmerless horses will return to camp or remain on the field, often galloping about in military formation, but avoid ing the wounded. An army horse knows the trumpet call as well as its rider, and when a sqund ron forms up to charge it will strain at the bit, anxious to be off. but it does not like waiting, doing nothing, especially if exposed to fire. Many attempts have been made to extend the Geneva convention to ani mals. The proposal has received sym pathy everywhere, but nothing definite has yet been done, though every sol dier does his best for his steed so far as in him lies.—Pearson’s Weekly. Crude Cannon. During the insurrectionary war car ried on in Cuba against the rule of Spain the insurgents, being in need of artillery, constructed a cannon of wood. A piece of tree, five feet in length and one foot in diameter, was placed on trestles and a bore burned in it by means of white hot iron pipes. This weapon was bound around with ox hides cut into long strips. It was fired over 100 times before it burst, the projectiles used being fragments of iron, stones and fire hardened clay balls. Paper cannons have been used by the Chinese in warfare. The cannons were made of paper, hardened and toughen ed by means of litharge, wax, tallow and white lead and fashioned in the shape of a long tube. A steel core was then inserted, the exterior being bound with wire and rope and steel bands added for extra strength. Three Wishes. “Once aloud and twice in silence shalt thou wish, and thy best wish I will give thee.” So spake Destiny. The moments ticked eternityward. The silent wishes were made, but the other—frantically the woman stared at the face of the clock. '■ Vainly she prodded her mind, but five minutes—four—three remained— two —one — “Oh!” wailed she aloud. “Oh. could I but choose!” Solemnly the hour struck. “Tby wish is granted thee, the sovereign gift of Surety. A greater lies not upon the knees of the high gods. Beside thy first two (for beauty and lovei the power to choose aright is as gold to clay.” And the future proved to this woman that Destiny’s choice for her had in deed been right.—Minna Thomas An trim in Lippincott’s. Uses For the Nose. The triangular pyramid projecting from the center of the face has always had peculiar interest for me. In in fancy I used it as a pocket, stowing therein an occasional bean filched from the cook’s store, and 1 remember the stir one such occasioned in the house hold as well as in me when a canny country doctor put his open mouth to mine and with mighty blast persuaded the bean to stand, not upon the order of its exit. Later a coasting accident left me with some nasal vacuity and the ability to run a grass blade up one nostril and down the other. Thus 1 became persona grata at juvenile cir cuses, the price of admission for my performance going all the way up from five pins to 3 cents, my profits invaria bly being paid in pins, the distaff side. I suppose, very properly.—Lucy Elliot Keeler in Atlantic. Fortunes In Lace. Several millionaire families in New York possess immense fortunes in laces alone. The laces owned by the Astor family are valued at $300,000, those of the Vanderbilt at $500,000. It is said that the New York Four Hundred buy more lace than any collectors in the world. No fewer than twenty wealthy women may be mentioned who each owns laces worth $50,000. Lace is tlie luxury of the rich. No ordinary mid die class collector can hope to possess anything but a few choice pieces, if lucky enough to be able to have those. There are several fine collections among the English aristocracy. What the Public Wants. “It’s hard to tell just what the pub lic wants these days,” said the thea ter manager, with a sigh. “It hasn’t struck me that way,” re: ptied the treasurer. “It seems pain fully easy to me. In nine cases out of ten it wants its money back.”—New York World California’s Gold. The first discovery of gold in Cali fornia was made in IS4B by James Marshall, who happened to pick up a glittering nugget in the bed of a stream! Since that time the state has yielded more than $1,500,000,000 in gold. Marshall died a poor man. A Legal Difference. The Client—How much will your opinion be worth in this case? The Lawyer—l’m too modest to say. But I can tell you what I’m going to charge you for it.—Cleveland Leader. x The Shaky Ladder.
