Hicks pounded hot shot Into the ears of his congregation Sunday even ing when he preached on the announced mjtiject, "Religion In Houghton, Is There Any?" He declared that Houghton's reputa tion for attendance on church was the worst ot any town of its nice in the State f Michigan. Declaimed that base ball. foot ball and Sunday excursions were largely to blame. The moral side ot man receives such a shock during the summer time that it lasts the ret of the year. "Saloons are open during the hours of worship on Sunday," said the preacl.er. and you and your boys are led away by them." "This is an unpopular thing to sty, hut some one should say it. It a min inter's duty to any these things and I urn a man," said Mr. Hicks, ''that is not afraid to declare them " Tie sai l it is a minister's duty to speak the truth and bold thing up it their right light. Mr. Hicks went on to say that the pro 'etwionnl and bus news men of Houghton, the number who regularly attended church could be counted on one band Also be said It was a patent fact that in Houghton, with its 3.500 population, all the churches combiued have an at tendance ot little more than COO. Our church only is open from 7 to 8 in the evening and the preacher declared that there were more people who hung around the post office thin attended that church. , The Y. M. C. A.

A certain news agency bad telegraphed abroad the report that I am in Switzer land, not for the benefit of my health, but for the purpose of stealing bicycles, and they added that I was an expert thief, and, for a time at least, I had succeeded in baffling the most praise worthy attempts of the police cf two town to capture m. While this statement la naturally flat tering to me it is nevertheless a libel, and, in fact, if 1 oared to use strong language I might go so far as to take the lsat syllable away from the word libeL" The whole troabl arose through Switzerland not haying a proper lan guage of its own, that billy country pre ferrlng to express what few thoughts lt has in amixtnreot French, German and Italian, depending on what particular canton yon happen to be in. They say that the Swiss are natural linguists. Unfortunately they are. Any combina tion of sounds yon may make means something to any Bwiss to whom yon happen to be talking, for be knows so many languages that yon are sure to hit on of them, and so yon convey ideas to him that yon had no thought of express ing. October weather is lovely in Switzer land. Mont of the Tisitors have then gone, prices com down one-half, and the air is sweet and cool, with usually a cloudless sky. Under these circumstances I thought lt would be a nice thing, as the rnads were good and the scenery picturesque, to take a bicycle tour right around Lake Tbun, beginning at the town which gives th lake its name, going around the north side of the lake to Iutorlakon and returning by the south shore. The hotel keeper told me that If I went np the street, turned to the right, went under an arcade until I cum to a tunnel, penetrated that and emerged on another street, turned to the loft and kept on I would come to the shop of a man wbo would let me hare a bicycle on hire by th day or the hour. I fol lowed the directions as closely as possi ble and thought I recognized the shop bocauea a bicycle was leaning against th walL Th owner was leaning against the doorway, looking at the bi cycle oataide. - The following conyersa tion in many languages took place be tween na : "Haben si nn bicyclette a loner?" I opened on blm with the above impartial mixture of German and French. It seems be understood me to ask if that was bis bicycle, whereupon he replied in four languages : "Yaw, yaw, oni, yes. ee." Then, throwing in a bit of Italian, I led off with : "Quanta costs la machine a la hoor, Oder per tag?" Now, I submit that to any educated person, or even to a university man. this sentence said as plainly as print, "How much do yon want for this ma chine by the bonr or the day?" I tried afterward to get the magi it rate to sea this, but be, not knowing Italian, shied at the very beginning of the phrase. The owner of the bicycle en oath de clares that be thought I asked how much the bicycle bad cost him. Be says that he answered he paid 000 franca for that brute of a machine, made in France, while I understood him to agree to let me hav It for fi franra a nay, which was cheap. I was in a hurry to be off and was afraid be might repent his offer, so I said It was all right, and I would take it, whereupon, without further parley, I wheeled the bicycle into the middle of the road, sprang on its back and was off, leaving the aston ished man standing by his door, too thunderstruck, it seems, to make" any outcry until I had passed beyond his sight at the first turning or tbe road. I pedaled serenely on, little realizing what a commotion I bad left behind me. and the on funny thing about this most regrettable episode is that I spent an exceedingly quiet, peaceful and en lovable day, not knowing I was pursued. making no attempt to elude anybody and yet eluding tbem In what appeared afterward to be by subtle and crafty dodges. The magistrate could not be persuaded that my sitting on tbe ve randa of a restaurant In the main street of Interlaken, with the bicycle in plain view of everybody, was not th brazen act of a hardened criminal, who knew the police would be searching for him in th back streets. When the man standing against tbe doorway bad recovered partly from his amazement at my sudden flight on his machine, he rushed to the police station and told th authorities there a plausi ble foreigner bad engaged him in polite Ollendorflan conversation, and, while his mind was distracted in trying to fol low his remarks, bsd seized tbe oppcr tunity and also the machine and was at that moment making his way to tbe north road toward Interlaken. Now, capture under these circum stances seemed to be deliciously easy. There were no branching off roads. The mountains were on on aid and tbe lake on the other, on neither side of which was bicycling practicable. Therefore all th two policemen had to do, when they mounted their machines, waa to ride faster than I did, and so overtake me. Aa I had no Idea that a race wss on. 1 piunged along In a leisurely msnner and would undoubtedly bsvebeen taken near Interlaken if it had not been for the fact that some years ago a company built a funicular railway from tbe mar gin of tbe lake a mile or so np to St Beatenburg. I had lived in Ft. Beaten burg once, and I remembered that tbe road from there to Interlaken was a good one, so I thought that perhaps it would not be a bsd plan to go up on the railway and coast down ta luterlnkon. I knew a man wbo had done it ouce. I cau well bflicvo now that no ono fver tries it the second time. The car go's up to St. Beatenburg three or four times a day early, but when a ooofl vf uJi Hilhert of all ia Leavening Powers-Latest TJ. & Gov't Report I1W way rrrjrn tno ruining i saw a steamer coming in, and I knew if I reached tbe landing about the time rbe did X would get a oar. I am not a racer, but I thereupon put In my bent licks to mako connection with the mountain railway. The road it this point is as level si the lake itself ind only a few feet above it. My Noughts turned to the railway becaur 1 knew that beyond the lower end of it the carriage road roue high above the lake, panned through several tunnels and then went down to tbe Interlaken plain. By taking the up cur I would avoid all this and have it dovrn hill all tbe way. The policemen, it seems, caught eight of me as I was making my spurt, and they at once put ou extra steam, but there is a deep bay just before one reaches the funicular, and they kt sight of me as I turned tbe point I had reached tbe top of the railway funicu lar, and I bicycled tbe mile or more along tbe street, hiprhnp above the lake, on one side of which is scattered tbe Tillage of St Beatenburg, with its won 4erful view of tbe mow mountains the Jungfran, tbe Eiger, tbe Monoh and a host of others. I found the ride down the zigrag road not such fun as I bad expected. I saw the brake was not going to last if I kept on, so X bad to walk moft cf tbe way down. Coming to a more level gtound, I cycled gently into Interlaken, making for tbe place where tbey sell Munich beer, and there, over a mug and a sandwich on the main street, I made my frugal lunch, with the bicycle standing against a pillar of the veranda. After a smoke I proceeded ont of In terlaken and took the south road that borders the lake. This road is not so good for cycling as the other, being much more hilly, while the roadbed is more stony. I therefore walked a good deal, taking it very leisurely, and in course of time I waa overtaken by a po liceman, wbo also was walking bis ma chine, lie asked me if I had met a man on a bicycle coming from Thun, and 1 told him quite truly that I had not He seemed discouraged and told me all about tbe bicycle theft and tbe arret of tbe wrong man. De feared the thief had hidden in the forest until he and bis comrade went pat and then perhaps took tbe steamer across the lake, or tbe villain might merely have pretended to take the north road, while in reality be went by the south. Thus the policeman hoped to meet him yet I promised to keep a lookout, and the officer went on. When I reached Thun and came to the place where I got the bicycle, I found the man was in Interlaken, and his wife, who knew all about tbe rob bery, was amazed to see the thief re turn the machine and place 5 francs and bis thanks on the counter. I regret to say that the apparent hon esty of this action did not commend it self to the authorities. They looked on it as the ruse of a crafty scoundrel, who realized that, so vigilant were the po lice, it was impossible for him to es cape, and so endeavored to throw dust in tho eyes of the wise men of tbe place. I therefore had to ray the expenses of tbe chase and apologize to everybody concerned. Thus th bicycle, at 6 francs a day, was not so cheap as X had at first sup posed. -Luke Sharp in Detroit Fret Press.

There Is a beautiful Incident related of Florence Nightingale, when the was a child. It shows that God had already planted within her the germ which was to develop so beautifully in after days. Her first wounded patient was a Scotch tbepberd dog. Borne boys bad hurt and apparently broken its leg by throwing stones, and it had been decided to hang it to put it ont of its misery. The little girl went fearlessly np to where be lay, saying, in soft, caressing tone, "Poor Cap, poor Cap." It was enough. He looked up with bis speak ing brown eyes, now bloodshot and full of pain, into ber face, and did not re son t it when, kneeling down beside him, she stroked with her little un gloved hand the large, intelligent head. To tbe vicar, bo was rather less amenable, but by dint of coaxing he at last allowed him to touch and examine the wounded leg, Florence persuasively telling him that it was "aU right" In deed, she was on tbe floor beside him, with his head on ber lap, keeping up a continuous murmur, much as a mother does over a sick child. "Well," said the vicar, rising from his examination, "as far as I can tell, there ar no bones bro ken ; tbe leg is badly bruised. It ought to be fomented to take tbe inflammation and swelling down." 'How do yon foment?" srked Florence. "With hot cloths dipped in boiling water," an swered the vicar. "Then that's quit asy. I'll stay and do it Now, Jimmy, get sticks and make tbe kettlo boiL" There was no hesitation in the child's manner, bbe was told What ougnt to ne done, and she set about doing it as a simple matter of course. "Butthey will be expecting yon at borne," said th Ticar. "Not if yon tell them I'm here," an b veered Florence, "and my sister and one of the maids can come and take me bom in time for tea, and," she hesitat ed, "they bad better bring some old flan nel and oloths; there does not seem to be much here. But yon will wait and show me how to foment, won't yon?" Well, yes," raid the Ticar, carried way by the quick energy of the littl girL And soon th fire was lit and th water boiling. An old smock frock ot the shepherd's had been discovered in corner, which ricrence bad deliberately torn in pieces, and to tbe vicar's remark. What will Roger say?" she answered. "We'll get him another." And so Ilor- ence Nightingale made ber first com press and spent all that bright spring day In nursing ber first patient the shepherd's dog. Every w here. USES OP OZONE. yalaaMa Far Artificially Alnc Uawar mm ' "a ia alas; Wood. Ozone is now practically applied for several purposes. Experiments with it have shown that it will artificially sg brandy, whisky, sweet and hard wines and liquors. Ozone will also improve coffee by rendering harmless oily beans. The aroma of tobacco is also considera bly improved by th application of ozone. Tbe latest application of it is for rapid seasoning of wood for sounding boards of musical instruments, which for tbe purpose is left In a hermetically closed, heated room from 12 to 24 hours, ozonifled sir being freely intro duced into the room. It seems that this process will harden the wood, increase its resistance against the influence of temperature and moisture and give it considerably' more aconstio or resound ing quality. Another recent application of ozonifled air is that of the thickening of linseed oil for tbe manufacture of linoleum, which by the old process took several months. By tbe liberal use of ozone linseed oil is now thickened to the re quired consistency within a few days. Most remarkable, however, is the ad vantage of employing ozone for bleach ing linen, since the time employed is less than one-third of the bleaching proc ess by sunlight, not considering that, this latter is dependent both upon the season and the weather. Tbe ozone proc ess of bleaching renders the work abso lutely independent of outside influences.
