President Haw den don not believe that the sample of Houghton water recently analyzed anil found to be un fit for drinking unless boiled, came from the Huron spring. He believes that the South spring, from which the new tank Is filled Is the source 'of contamination, and has e-rdered that the tank be emptied and i -leaned.

The old man .was perched upon a high stool, figuring up the day's sales of dry goods, groceries and hardware, when his son came in with a rush. "Say, pop," exclaimed tho young man, "If I enn buy a $300 horse for $150, will you tako a chattel mortgage on him and help roe out with the cash?" "What kind of a hoss, my sou?" in quired tho father cautiously. "Bay, four years old, sixteen hands high, weighs a thousand pounds and is sound In wind, limb and bottom." "That sounds good to me, my son, nnd I want to do all I can to help you along in the world." And ho reached down into tho Aft for his roll. "How much do you want?" "A huudrtHl and forty-nine fifty." Tho old man gasped and caught hold of the desk.1 "What?" he exclaimed. "A hundred and forty-nine fifty. I've got half a dollar." Slowly the old man shoved tho roll back Into the safo.

THE. DEATH DICE. History of an Odd Gift of tho Emperor of Germany. There is shown In the Ilobeazollcrn museum a gift of the emperor of Ger many, the "death dice," with which oue of his ancestors decided a difficult case in the seveuteentb century. Their history is an interesting one. A young girl bad been murdered. Suspicion fell upon two soldiers, Ralph and Alfred, who were suitors for ber hand. Both the nccusect mcu denied their guilt, and even torture failed to extract a confession from either of them. Then Elector Frederick William decided to cut the knot by means of the dice box. The two soldiers should throw for their lives and the loser should bo executed as the murderer. Tho evout was celebrated with great pomp and solemnity. Ralph bad the first chance and threw sixes, the highest possible num ber. The dice box was then given to Alfred. He fell on his knees and prayed aloud: "Almighty God. thou knowest I am lnnoceut. Protect roe, 1 beseech thee!" Then he arose to his feet nnd threw the dice Tvitb such force that one of them broke. The whole one showed six, the broken ono also gare six on tho larger portion, and the fragment split off showed one. This was a total of thirteen, ono beyond Ralph's throw. The audience held its breath In amazement. "God has spoken," cried the prince. Ralph, appalled by what be regarded as a sign from heaven, confessed hlo guilt and was sentenced to death. The Swiss peasants are of tho opin ion that tho con.stant shrinkage of the Alpine glaciers Is due to tho building of mountain railroads. Collins & Peterson LICENSED Embalmers and Undertakers.

MITCHEL $ Copyright by Am Ican Press Asso- elation. 1911. T. I'M-!' ! I- I-I-l XA'l'frMrHrHrHrWr Cardinal Richelieu white prime min ister was virtually king of Frauce. During his administration dueling be came so common among tho higher classes, especially the officers of the army, that it was evident if the prac tice were not checked these two classes would become depleted. The cnrdlnal issued an order against such fighting, but It was not obeyed. In order to show that ho was in earnest In the matter ho made an example of the Count de Boutevllle, a member of the exalted houso of MontmoreucI, who had disobeyed the edict. Tho count was beheaded. This had a wholesome effect, but not sulllclent to eradicate the evil. There was nt this time a young lieu tenant in tho army, Jean do la Tour, married to Yvon. a lovely young wom an of twenty-four, who had borne him two children. Jean was a poor swords man, and his wife realized that if com pelled to light according to the codo she would probably lose him. She urged him to practice, and when he excused himself on the ground that ho had no one to fence with she offered to be ids opponent. Jean was much pleased at the idea, and hts wife nt ouco procured n suita ble costume. She was about the same height and weight as her husband, and It was apparent from the first that she would make a very suitable adversary for practice puroses. Whilo Pe la Tour was naturally sluggish in his movements, ruadame was remarkably quick. Ho started in as her instructor, but It was not long before ho was worsted by his pupil. lilt Yvon know very well t?nt she was not capable of bringing him up to a standard that would make hlra a match for accomplished swordsmen. Unknown to her husband, she took les sons of tlie most skillful fencing mas ter in Paris, pledging him to keep the matter n secret Ho had gooel rea son to observe his pledge, for his pupil soon became moro proticlent in bis art than himself. The inevitable was not long in com ing. Jean do la Tour ono day, during drill, stepped in a puddle of water nnd J bespattered a comrade's newly polish ed boots. Yvon was in her chamber, engaged with her maternal duties, when an officer called and asked for her husband. She told her caller that Jean was not nt home, and the officer left with her a challenge for him from Lieutenant Jacques do Fontayne to mortal combat for having bespattered his boots. Madame promised to deliver tho message, and tho officer withdrew. When Do la Tour returned to his quarters his wife asked him to drive with her to their country place near Paris to assist her In laying out sonio changes she wished to make. Jean consented, nnd the two drove to a houso and grounds near St. Cloud. Jean was surprised to see several servants there, including Francois, whom lis wife had brought with her from ber own family when she was married. Yvon took her husband to a room on the top story, with but on3 window near tho ceiling, and, while telling him of the change she proposed to make in it, suddenly stepped into the hall. Jean beard the key turned in tho door and his wifo going down tho staircase. He was a prisoner. In n few minutes Francois came up and told his master that Mme. de la Tour desired that her husband should remain in seclusion for a few days, and she hoped ho would not worry. He would bo given whatever ho wish ed for. Do la Tour, at a loss to know the cnuso of his imprisonment, was thunderstruck. Mme. do la Tour, returning to Tarls, sent word in tho name of her husband that in view of the cardinal's order he would only meet Lieutenant da Fontayno on the promise of all con cerned not to divulge the affair and would insist on fighting masked. A reply canio consenting to tho terms and asking that De la Tour would name his seconds in order that the terms might bo ngreed upon. In reply to this word was sent that Do la Tour, fearing a second might be tray blm to tho prime minister, would trust no ono with .h(s; interests. .He would appear at dawn the next morn ing at the village of V., a few miles from Tarls, ready, to fight Do Fon tayno with rapiers. Tho reason given for this unusual courso was that De la Tour was more afraid of losing his life by the cardinal's ax than Do Fon tayno's sword. An assent to this was received by Mme. de la Tour, and the preliminaries were closeel. Tho next morning Yvun. dressed In a suit of clothes belonging to her husband, was driven to V nrrlvin on the ground Jnst as day was break ing. She found not only Do Fontayne, but two seconds attending him. Tardon, monsieur," said one of these men, "but it Is not usual for af fairs like this to be fought out alone by tho principals. Finco you have no seconds, in case you disable Lieuten ant de Fontayne it is expected that you will fight with me, nnd if you dis able me you will have to fight my confrere.' Yvon. not flaring to speak lest hr voice belray her, simply nodded an as sent. She wore her husband's rapier DON T WORRY THE NEWS WANT ADS. WILL HELP YOU at her sldo and. drawing it put herself in a position of defense. Now, Mme. do la Tour, though she expected to meet skillful swordsmen, knew that if she showed her own pro ficiency she would give herself away for these men all knew that Do la Tour was a bungler. Being a woman, at first ber nerve failed her, and she came very near losing her life by a single thrust of her adversary. The thought of her two innocent children, who would be rendered motherless if she did not control herself, made her per fectly cool, aud, though she did not do what sho was capable of doing, she did ' all that was necessary. Sho dreaded killing her adversary or even wound ing him. She therefore sent his weap on flying in tbo air. Do Fontayno picked it up with tho intention of continuing the fight but his second interfered, claiming that It was not now his part to fight By this time Yvon's nerve was as steady as a rock. She pinked her adversary, though unintentionally, then disarmed him. Tho third man she served as she had served the first Then she strode uway to ber carriage without turning back for a glanco at the three men, who stood looklug at ono another and her in astonishment But madame did not have a chance to mount the steps of the carriage tha footman had let down for her. Tho sound of horses' hoofs was heard, aud an officer, followed by a dozen horse men, rode up. "By order of his eminence the rrlmd minister," ho said, "I arrest you all and am ordered to conduct you to the Palais Cardinal." Tho affair had got out at the bar racks, some ono wishing to curry favor with the man who ruled Franco hav ing peached. Yvon was permitted to ride back to Taris in her carriage, tho others on horseback, all surrounded by guards. At the Palais Cardinal they were obliged to wait several hours be fore the minister was ready to recelvo them; then when they were admitted to bis presence by the thundercloud on his face they saw their doom. Yvon had worn her mask up to this moment. The cardinal saw it and said with icy sarcasm: "Lieutenant do la Tour, you remind me of the ntr!ch, which hides his hend In the sand to conceal its body. Your head will look better till I am through with it uncovered. You will oblige me by removing your mask." "Pardon, your eminence," interposed Do Fontayne, "I doubt if he is De la Tour. This ono is a marvel with the rapier; Do la Tour is an indifferent fencer. This ono disarmed us all in turu." "We have need of such men," said the cardinal to Yvon. "You would be better employed in my service. 1 would seo you fence with Carrier. If you can disarm Carrier you will save your head. Unmask!" "If I unmask, your eminence, I can not fight" 1 "Not fight unmaskedl Well, then, wait till you have fought" Carrier was ono of those picked men tho cardinal kept about him for pro tection and a marvel with tho rapier. Tho two were given foils, this being a great advantage to Yvon. who dreaded bloodshed. For nwhllo it was a drawn game between the two, but finally, by one of those quick moves that only a gift nerve, so to speak, can accomplish, Yvon placed tho button of her foil against ber adversary's heart "Enough! cried tho cardlnaL ''Vic tor, unmask!" Yvon took ofT her face covering, and in doing so her hair, which had in so many frays became unloosened, fell on her shoulders. "A woman!" exclaimed Richelieu, as tonished. "A woman, your excellency," sn replied. "Tho wlfo of Lieutenant da la Tour." "Your husband! Where Is he?" "Shut up in our country place. I tricked hlra. Knowing of your emi nence's edict ngainst men fighting duels, 1 determined to fight in bU place. Surely tho order docs not apply) to women." "You are very shrewd," said his emi nence dryly. At this point nn attendant announc ed to the cardinal that Lieutenant do la Tour was without nnd begged to bo ndmitted. Tho request was granted, and Do la Tour, very hot aud very red and very angry, entered. Ho looked at overybody, finally fixing his eyes on his wife. Then ho turned to the car dinal. "I havo heard, your eminence, tliafi my wlfo has been fighting In my stead nnd that tlie party was brought here by your eminence's order. Mcanwhila I havo been shut up liko a dog and have Just escaped." "Your wifo has saved you first from a better swordsman and second from my beadsman." Then turning to Yvoni "Mme. do la Tour, her majesty has graciously appointed you ber mistress of tho robes. By your pluck and skill you havo saved every ono of these men. Including your husband, from tho block." Then Yvon approached her husband shamefacedly, hung her head and glanced up at him appcalingly. H9 half turned nway from her with fold ed arms, tapping ono arm -with bte fingers. "You havo mado mo ridiculous," no muttered. I would,'! Interposed the cardinal, "that every woman ia France would mako her husband thus ridiculous. To show you and others that sho has benefited you tho king promotes you to bo captain." Then Jean embraced his wife. It boa been claimed that the reforra tho cardinal was no desirous of mak ing really began from that time. Ba that as it may, Captain and Mme. 09 la Tour always stood high In hla emi nence's favor.
