A. Clyde Ehret, pastor of the S. D. church at Adams Center On Tuesdaj 7 evening Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Dunn were present at a dinner giv en in the Y. M. C. A. buildingin Janes ville by Senator John M.

When near the John Campion farm they met an automobille running with no head lights. Mr. Salmon drove as far on the side of the road as was possible and the driver, confused in the darkness, turned out on the wrong side of the road and ran into the buggy completely smashing it and throwing Mr. and Mrs. Salmon out.

No bones w 7 ere broken, but she was badly bruised and is still under the doctor’s care. Mr. Salmon also sustained sev eral bruises. It is unexcusable on the part of any driver to drive at night withdut lights, to say nothing about turning out on the wrong side and thus endangering human life and limb. The driver in this case offered to pay all damages, but that does not excuse criminal negligence. Chamberlain’s Tablets.

This is no “fish” story as the term Is usually referred to, but it is a story about fish. Jim Foster, student of fish affairs, vouches for its authenticity. Jim has a collection of big live fish in a small aquarium in a down-town restaurant and for 12 hours every night he watches them perform. “The fish are very affectionate,” de clared the fish student. “They are good-tempered and kind toward one an other. See those two largest fish? They are ‘married,’ I guess, or else in love with each other. They always kiss each other good night and nibble affectionately at each 'other’s mouths. The female of the two never puts her cold fins on the male one’s back. And In the morning—say, it’s amusing to ' watch them yawn and stretch them- | selves.” —Detroit Free Press. : Ashanti Cocoa Growing. Cocoa growing is rapidly becoming a prominent industry in Ashanti, which has hitherto been associated with nameless horrors perpetrated by King Prempeh, which necessitated repeated punitive expeditions down to 1900, the most famous being Lord Wolseley’s campaign through the trackless jungle in 1594. Now 7 the Gold Coast is the largest exporter of cocoa in the w T orld. and Ashanti supplies a very large pro portion. Archdeacon Morrison wmites from Kumassi: “In the last five years Ashanti has made great strides in com mercial prosperity. This is owing to j cocoa. When the rubber boom came to an end there w 7 as stagnation for a short time, but cocoa has more than taken its place. Ashanti makes an ideal cocoa-growing country, and the industry is very suitable for the West African, as it requires no great out put of labor.” Poets and Politicians. Recently elected a director of the North-Eastern Raihvay company, Vis count Grey of F’allodon is a man of great personal charm, says London Tit-Bits. He hates swank and often displays an amiability which can even tolerate a bore. He is said to be the most cordial host that ever wel comed a guest. A mystic and a poet at heart-—he has been accused of waiting clever verse under a nom de plume —he is a politician by command and duty, for It was the late Mr. Gladstone who in sisted that w T ith such brains he owed It to his country to busy himself with affairs of state. Formerly he in dulged in championship form at law r n tennis; now 7 he is the leading expo nent of fly-fishing in England. Sioo Reward 9100.

Mechanics take much better care of their machinery than they do of their own bodies. They know that unless the machine is cleaned, oiled and rest ed occasionally it will not run prop erly. How often do they think of the importance of caring for "their human machinery? They run it at the high est tension, feed it on stale air and improper food and then become surs - if It runs down.
