Rev. G. G. Krostu officiated. Late in the night last Tuesday as severs’ men were driving home from London, they discovered the kitchen part of Ed Latsch’s home, two miles north of Cambridge, in flames. They knocked on the doors and finally forced a way in, thus awakening the inmates who were asleep upstairs. The stair way was already in flames so that the family were obliged to make egress through the windows with the help of the men outside. No one was hurt and a portion of the household furniture on the lower floor was saved but the build, ing was completely ruined. Hearing but Not Listening. In the course of a vist to Nagpur, the capital of the central provinces, writes Mr. Stanley Coxon in his Indian remi niscences, I heard of an amusing end ing to a civil case. It was an appeal case, and on one side was a Mr. Stau yon, an English barrister, and on the other a number of native pleaders. The arguments on both sides had been heard, and the case closed for judg ment. Suddenly one of the native pleaders got up and addressed the court once more. Mr. Stanyon suffered it for some lime; but, losing patience, he also stood up and, addressing the court, said, “Your honor, I would beg with all re spect to point out to the court that my learned friend opposite is entirely out of order in addressing the court, and if I may be permitted to say so the court has no right to be listening to him.’* The court, who at that time was writing, put his head over the desk and said, “Mr. Stanyon, it’s a great piece of impertinence on your part to assume that the court is listening to him.’’ Moving Picture Shows. An observer says the .reason that all classes like motion picture plays is that each person puts into the mouths of the silent actors the exclamations, words and lines that he himself would use under like circumstances, Incidents and situations are flashed on the screen, but the spectator tells the unspoken story to himself, and there is no possibility of artificial, strained or incomprehensible dialogue. What the spectator imagines is the thing that is natural to him. To one who watches Hamlet with Yorick’s skull the words of the play may come, “Imperious Caesar, dead and turned to clay, might stop a hole to keep the wind away.” To another’s imagination Hamlet says. “Well, we all gotta come to it.” Could explanation be simpler, yet more profoundly true? Richmond Times-Dispatch. The Early Circus. Leaving out of count the great cir cuses of Rome and Antioch and com ing down to something of modern times, the first circus in England was on a footpath known as Halfpenny Hatch, in the Waterloo road, London. There, in 1.770, Astley’s first perform ance was given, with the aid of a drum, two fifes and one clown. A charge of sixpence was made for the front standing places. There was no building and not even a tent, but mere ly a ring of ropes and stakes. Primi tive as were the arrangements, Astley soon attracted good audiences and was able to add to his program conjuring, transparencies, vaulting and tumbling, with displays of fireworks. In course of time he was able to hire an inclosed ground and erected seats under a sub stantial roof. He called the place Ast ley's amphitheater riding house. Women and Golf In Olden Days. Clark, in his “Golf, a Royal and An cient Game,” printed a few decades ago, recounts how strangers at the old St. Andrews course abroad were given a trial on the famous holes, and if they proved to be of the tribe of turf dig gers and sand lifters they were igno miniously thrust into the outer dark ness of the “women’s green.” The ac commodations accorded to women in the old days were in the nature of a sop to Cerebus, merely to keep them quiet and satisfied while the men in dulged in the more serious pursuit of a serious business with a better equip ment on a finer course. In the annals of one old golf club it is recorded that since a certain green was habitually flooded and generally useless it was recommended that anew hole be built in its place and the old green given over to the women. The Sleep of Seeds. Oats, corn, fennel and some flower seeds were ex? wised during 118 days to a temperature of 40 degrees F. be low zero. Afterward, when placed in suitable surroundings, nearly all of the fennel, oat and corn seeds and many of the others germinated. It is con cluded that the protoplasm, or the prin ciple of life, in a resting seed is in a state of inaction not comparable to that of a smoldering fire, but rather like that of a chemical mixture which is capable of forming a combination whenever the required conditions of temperature and illumination are pres ent. How She Was Named. A little colored girl, a newcomer in Sunday school, gave her name to the teacher as “Fertilizer Johnson.” Later the teacher asked the child’s mother if that was right. “Y’es. ma’am, dat’s her name,” said the fond parent. “You see. she was named fer me and her father. Her fa ther’s name am Ferdinand, and my name is Liza. So we named her Fer tilizer.”—Boston Transcript. Copper Came From Cyprus. The word copper is generally admit ted to be derived from Cyprus, as it was from that island that the ancient Romans first procured their supplies. In those remote days Cyprus and Rhodes were the great copper produc ing districts. Two Tests. The test of a lover is not how many he has loved, but bow well; the test of a philanthropist is not how well he has loved, but how many.—Alice Welling ton Rollins. No Breach of Confidence. “Say, what do you mean by tedinfi Jones that I was a blockhead:’ “Why, it isn’t a secret, is it?”—Boo ton Transcript. Raise your.

Wisconsin Tobacco Hail Dept. Edgerton - Wisconsin HENRY JOHNSON, Affl. “That Farm Looks Prosperous” People always make remarks like that when they drive by a trimly-painted set of buildings in the country. Asa matter of fact; it may be that the rather shabby place a mile back was really slightly better land, but APPEARANCES were against it! There is invariably a PROSPEROUS LOOK that comes with the use of £fiU&BM TINTED GLOSS PAINT This is as it should be.
