A Practical Demonstration of Pillbury’s Best XXXX Hour will be held at the store of Pyre & Wanamaker Friday and Saturday, October 15th and 10th Between the Poles. Although Lord Rayleigh is a noted scientist and a profound scholar, he has a humorous side to his nature, and he once played a neat little joke on a learned friend with whom he had been discussing some deep subjects. “What is the difference between the north and south poles ?” he asked gravely. His lordship’s friend thought be bad anew scientific problem to grapple with and brought all the weight of his brain to bear upon the question. “I really must give it up.” he said at last “The answer is simple re plied Lord Rayleigh with a smile. “There is all the difference in the world.”—London Anwsers. The Bull. The bull is a male ruminant, specifi cally a he cow. The bull is a historical animal. He has been worshiped in Egypt, thrown in the cattle country, fought in Mexico and Spain and canned in Chicago. The Egyptians called him Apis and built temples to him, but bull worship was not a profitable business as all the Egyptians who followed the bull are either dust or mummies and have been so for centuries. On the other hand, canning the bull has made a flock of millionaires, so the live one; everywhere have adopted the western idea and pretty generally can the bull. Don’t be a bull thrower. —Judge. District of Columbia. Maryland in 1788 and Virginia in 1789 gave land comprising 100 square miles. This was organized in 1790-91 as the District of Columbia and be came the seat of government in ISOO. Afterward the part ceded by Virginia was given back, not being needed. The present District of Columbia, therefore, consists of sixty-four square miles, all on the east bank of the Po tomac and all ceded by Maryland. Serfdom.

An Artist’s Criticism. Falguiere, the sculptor, told a capital etory of Henner, the great artist, vv r ho although he lived in Paris all his life, never lost his Alsatian peasant ac cent or his country manners. But Henner was a very keen critic and had a clever way of showing his dis like of wordy enthusiasm. Falguiere, whose talent as a sculptor is known all the world over, was very fond of paint ing, but he did not paint particularly well. One day Henner was in his studio, and Falguire showed him some of his pictures. “What do you think of this one?’* asked Falguiere. “Superb!” said Henner, with his Al sation accent. “Marfelous!” “And this one?” “Broditchous!” “And this one?” “Suplime!” Then the old man picked up a little bust which his friend had just finished: “Ah!” he said. “Now, dat’s good!” “I never painted after that,” said Falguiere. Wellington’s Coolness. The Duke of Wellington was one day sitting at his library table when the door opened and without any an nouncement in stalked a figure of sin gularly ill omen. “Who are you?” asked the duke in his short and dry manner, looking up without the slightest change of coun tenance upon the intruder. “I am Apollyon. I am sent here to kill you.” “Kill me? Very odd.” “I am Apollyon and must put you to death.” “’Bliged to do it today?” “I am not told the day or the hour, but I must do my mission.” “Very inconvenient; very busy; great many letters to write. Call again or write me word. I’ll be ready for you.” The duke then went on with his cor respondence. The maniac, appalled probably by the stem, immovable old gentleman, backed out of the room and in half an hour was in an asylum. Earth's Diameter. The earth’s greatest diameter is not necessarily at the equator. According to the eminent Professor Henkey, the actual greatest diameter is that taken from the summit of Mount Chimbo razo. The line drawn from this point to the opposite side on a point in Su matra gives a diameter of 7,929 miles. Take a Tonight It will act as a laxative in the morning Dean Swift. Trick of the Lemon Growers. By an interesting yet simple method two crops ol' lemons are obtained in Sicily during the year, though the sec ond is in every way inferior. The abnormal fruit is known as the Ver delli lemon and is marketed during the summer months. The Verdelli lemon, green in color, grows contemporaneous ly on the same trees with the ordinary or yellow lemon of commerce and is obtained by the following method: The lemon tree, which flowers in April, is kept without water from that period until July, when the roots are heavily flooded for a time. This results in a second set of blossoms, from which will come the Verdelli lemons. The ordinary lemon crop is picked in the months beginning with October, but the Verdelli lemons do not mature until the next May.—Argonaut. How He “Looked." Two young men were standing in a hotel where they had gone to use the free comb and the free brush. One of them seemed to think he looked rather nifty. He had on anew suit of clothes and he turned and twisted as he ad mired himself in the glass. Finally he could not resist the temptation to hear the spoken word of commenda tion. “How do you think I look?” he asked his companion. The other looked at him and sniffed. “You look like an accident going out somewhere to happen,” was his retort. —lndianapolis News. Rheumatism and Allied Pains - They Must Go.

They sometimes point to this fact when bread loaves do not immediately increase in size in sym pathy with a decline in the price of the miller’s product.
