The trouble waa in too many of the boyaentering for near ly every event. Thin neceeaitated consid erable delay, but will be remedied when each young athlete find what be la beat adapted to, and aticka to and traina for those particular events. The morning program waa unavoidably delayed be cause of the non-arrival of more than half of the contestants, the Calumet conting ent, until nearly 11 o'clock. This left three events on the morning program until afternoon, into which the manage ment had nropoeed to crowd nineteen eventa. Outalde ot these delays, the Hancock high school boys may be proud of the re sult of their first field day and from among them will come athletes who will make the older and better known bustle in a very few, years. Uoldswortby. will certainly be heard from In the inter-association field day next September, the eyent In Houghton county athletics that is the standard. lie won every event in which he entered and made aome fine sprints, although riding a TO gear wheel for the first time. So will lien Wieder cut a figure for points on Labor day in the hurdle race. He ran the cleanest 120 yard hurdle ever seen on that track in 21 1-5 without knocking down a single hurdle. He has acquired a sudden notor iety by his good showing which was to tally unexpected. The Calumet boys had a little the beat of the morning program, but the Han cock boya in the end had a trifle the beat in the matter of firsts. Hubs, of Hough ton, made a fine showing la the running high jump. The five-mile bicycle race brought only Fitf patrick and Goldsworth y to the tape. They could not agree as to taking turns setting the pace and the start very much resembled a slow race. Ooldsworthy is unequalled at that, bnt finally he decided to go ahead, and he paced the first half, after which the two alternated until the beginning of the last half, when the jockeying began again, and around the track the two almost crept. The race had been called off on account of the time limit, 10 minutes, being exceeded. At the quarter the two by common consent it seemed started the spurt. Again, as at jockeying tor position, Ooldsworthy was the superior. The following is the list of events with the winner ot each and the record made: Standing broad jump, Croae, 0 ft. sec.

FitzDatnck. z endorses the Idea that In such matters as I lighting, etc., municipalities should ko slow or they may find themselves In the position referred to by Mr. Dow, if we mistake not our local light company baa passed through just such an exper ience: "City Electrician Iow aays he does not believe the theory of municipal lighting plants is a goou one, owinir to the the in fancy of the application of electricity as a lighting force. New discoveries are Ha- ble to make a plant absolute, and then the money of the taxpayers is Invested in a losing venture and taken out ot private enterprises. ''The same thing is true ot street rail ways, be says, and he directs attention to the municipal street railway lines In Glasgow. There the taxpayera satisfy themselves with horse cars, not caring to make the huge investment necessary to change to electric propulsion. "Municipal water works are a success, because the system ot water works are I highly developed and but few improve ments ran be made In them. The public lighting plant waa forced on Detroit, be tbinka, because the companies were In clined to charge exborbitant prices tor furninbing lights. That was partly due, however, to our way of letting bnt three year contract a. Infignringtorcontracts, the companies were forced to anticipate in their bids the coming of a new plant to the city at the expiration : of their contract, which would make their plant a dead loss. "Mr. Dow figures that the Detroit1 plant would sell for 20 per cent more than it cost, because the city borrowed money cheaper than private individuals could secure it, and purchased the ma chinery in close competition.

The Christopher Columbusexcursion to Isle Royale yesterday bad an ideal day. Lake Superior was perfectly smooth and the temperature allowed of sitting out on all the decks. There would have been room for twice the crowd, although Cap tain Smith said he had on board in round numbers 2,000 people.

One of the most poisonous snakes at the Loudou eoo, a king cobra, recently became nearly blind. When it shed its skin, it threw off every part except the transparent plate which covers the eye. After each change of skin this plate re mained uucaHt, and the successive lay ers became opaque and projected over the eye in a horny boss. The keeper used the snake habit of creeping through any aperture which it can find in the wall of its cage to rid iwcu oi me growth over the eye. He drew back the iron shutter which sepurates one com partment from the other, leaving a nar row space open. The cobra soon discor cred this, and pushed its nose into the crack. This was slightly w idened, and the snake squeewni through, rubbing off one of the scales as it did so. It waa then induced to go back by the way lt had come, aud after this had been re peated ouce or twice it cleared the scale from tho other eye. Since then it has cast its skin completely and its eyes arc apparently none the worse for its tem porary blindness. Snakes naturally drag tkomuiirM thmuffh routrh grass and holes to get rid of the old skin which clings ta them. London Public Opin ion. Wordsworth and the Bby.

Journal The Count Stibor was as brave as he was highborn, and riches hud poured in upon him until he had becunie oue of the wealthiest nobles in the empire. It chanced that oue day he ImnUd with a great retinue among the mountain fast nesses, and glorious was the sport of that gallant hunt The light footed chamois, the antlered deer, I he fierce wolf, and the grizzly bear were alike laid low. When the gun was about to sot, he formed his temporary encamp ment on the pleasant bank of the Wang, just where, on the opposite side of the channel, a lone and precipitous rock turned aside the glancing waters. The heart of Stibor was merry, for the sport had gone well throughout the day, and when his rude teutn were raised, the savory steam of the vcninon and the sparkle of the wine cup bright ened his humor, and he listened, with a smile upon his lip, to the light sallies of the joyous company. Aa they talked idly of the day's hunt ing, however, one wished that the dr bad taken another direction; a second that he had not missed . a certain shot ; a third that he had not lout his muteau de chase in the underwood. In nlurt, there was not an individual among them who had not some regret blended with his triumph, like a drop of gall in a cup of honey. "Hear me," said the magnificent noble, during a transient pause in the conversation. "I seem to be the only hunter of the day to whom thespjrt has been without a blemish. It is true that all your misfortunes are light enough, but I will have no shadow cast upon my own joy, and therefore to compensate you for these alleged mishaps, each of yon ia free to form a wish, and if it be within my power to grant it, I pledge my word that it shall be fulfilled. " A murmur of admiration ran through the astonished circle, and the work of ambition soon began. Gold was the first thing asked for, for avarice is ever the most greedy of all passions, and then re venge upon an enemy, for human nature will often sacrifice personal gain to vengeance, and then power, authority, rulo over their fellow men, the darling oecunation and privilege of poor, weak, self misjudging mortals. In short, there was no boon within the reach of reason which had not been asked and promised, when the eye of Stibor fell upon his jester, who was standing apart playing with the tassels of bis vest and appar ently quite uninterested in a subject which had made all around him eager and excited 'And thou, knave," said the noble, "hast thou nothing to ask? Thou must bestir thyself, or thy master will have little left to give, if the game go on thus." 'Fear not, fear not, " replied the fooL "The claimants have been courteous, for thevhave not touched upon that portion of thy possessions which I covet. They have demanded goM, blood, domain, the power to enjoy themselves, and to ren der others wretched they are welcome to all they want I only ask for stonea " A loud. laugh ran through the circle. "Stones, Betzkol" echoed the astonished Stibor. "Thou shalt have them to my heart's content, where and lu what shape thou wilt" "I take thee at thy word, Count Sti bor. I will have them yonder on the croat of the bold rock that stands out like a braggart daring the foot of man, and in the shape of a good castle iu which I may hold my own, should need be," was the unlooked for reply. "Thou hast lost thy chance, Betzko, cried a rolce amid the universal merri ment that ensued. ;'Not even Stibor can accomplish thy desire." "Who dares to aay that Stibor cannot grant it, if such be his will?" demanded h .Moftnin in a voice of thuuder as he rose proudly from the earth where he had been seated on a couch of skins "The castle of Betzko shall be built!" And it was built, and within a year a festival vm held there, and the noble became enamored of his own creation, for it was beautiful in its strength, and the fair danwe admired its courtly halls as much as the warriors prizeu iw nuim walls and its commanding lowers. kr.. Pnnni Stibor bought off the fortress from his jester with gold, and made it the chief piaoe oi ins w. and he feasted therewith his guests and made merry with music and dauces until it seemed as though life was to be for him one long festival.

As the miserable tools of an injuri ous will were dragging the unhappy vic tim to his fate ho raised his voice und cursed the tyrant whom they served, and having done so he summoned him to appear at the tribunal, which none can escape, to answer for this his last crime, on its first anniversary. Dut the powerful chief heeded not his words. "Away with himl" he said sternly as be lifted his goblet to his lips; and there was a struggle, a shriek of agony and then a splash upon the river wave, and all was silent. A year went by iu festival and pride, and tho day on w Inch that monstrous crimo had been committed returned un heeded. There w as a feast in the castle, and Stibor, who mouth after month Bate himself up yet more to self indul- sence, gradually became heavy with wine, and his attendants carried him to a couch beside the same wiudow whence the unfortunate slave had be u hurled 12 months before. The guests drank on for a time, and made nierry at the insensibility and helplessness of their powerful host, and then they departed, each to his bnsiues or pleasure, and left him there ulone. The casement had been flung back to admit the air freely into the heated apartment, aud the last reveler had scarcely departed, when a raven tho somber messenger ef .Nemesis new thrice round the battlements of tho cas tle, and then alighted on the balcony. Several of the guests amused their idle ness by watching the evolutions vt the ill omened bird, but once having lost sight of it they turned away and thought of it no more. Meuuwhile a work of agony aud death had been delegated to that dark winged messenger. It rested but an instant from its flight ere once more it hovered over the couch of the sleeping btibor, and then, darting down, its sharp beukpeue trated at erne thrust from his eye into his brainl The agony awoke him, but he awoke nnlv to madness from its extent. Ho reeled to and fro, venting imprecations to which none was by to listen, aud writhed until his tortured body was one couvulsion. At length, by a mighty .f fort, striving to accomplish he knew not what, he hurled himself over the ual cony, at the selfsame sjsit whence the slave had been flung by his own com mand, and as he fell the clear waters of the Waag for a time resisted the impure burden and threw him back shrieking and how liug from their depth.
