Helnemann, tin* European publisher, once noticed two peddlers standing side by side, selling toy dolls. One of them had a queer, fat faced doll, which he was pushing into the faces of the pass ersby, giving It the name of a well known woman reformer then promi nently before the public. Ills dolls were selling rapidly, while the man be side him, who had a really more at tractive doll, was doing comparatively little business. A thought occurred to Helnemann, and he tried an experi ment. Calling the second peddler to one side, “My friend,” he said, “do you want to know how to sell twice as many of these dolls as you are selling now? Hold them up In pairs, two to gether In each hand, and cry them as •The Heavenly Twins.’ ” The toy vend er somewhat grudgingly followed his advice. It was at a time when Sarah Grand’s famous novel was at the height of its popularity, and the title of the book was on every one’s tongue. Perhaps It was merely luck, but the heavenly twins dolls were an Instan taneous success, and within one hour the vender of the woman reformer dolls gave up the fight, acknowledged himself beaten and moved five blocks down the street to escape the ruinous competition.—Loriu F. Deland in At lantic. The Supreme Gift. Man has no wings, and yet he can soar above the clouds. lie is not swift of foot, and yet he ean outspeed the fleetest hound or horse. He has but feeble weapons In his organization, and yet ho can slay or master all the great beasts. His eye is not so sharp as that of the eagle or the vulture, and yet he can see Into the farthest depths of sidereal space. lie has only very feeble occult powers of communi cation with his fellows, and yet he can talk around the world and send his voice across mountains and deserts. His hands are weak things beside a lion’s paw or an elephant’s trunk, and yet he can move mountains and stay rivers and set bounds to the wildest seas. His dog can outsmell him and outrun him and outblte him, and yet his dog looks up to him as to a god. lie has erring reasons in place of un erring Instinct, and yet he has changed the face of the planet. Without the specialization of the lower animals—their wonderful adap tation to particular ends, their tools, their weapons, their strength, their speed—man yet makes them all- his servants. Ilia brain is more than ft match for all the special advantages nature has given them. The one gift of reason makes him supreme In tine world.--John Burroughs In Atlantic- j ‘ IOWA COUNTY DEMOCRAT CLA J State Historical Society ) From the Mineral Point High School NUMBERS TWENTY - TWO Thirty - Firs* Annual Commence ment, May 28 to June 4. THE GRADUATES MODERN CLASSICAL Mary Adams Bertha Hosken Edith Crum Anne Hutchison Evelyn Fiedler Sadie Hickcox Marjorie Opie John Vivian ENGLISH Lulu Chandler Wilbur Berryman Warren Jackson GERMAN Rose Arthur Charles Jackson Mae Grange Raymond Jackson Florence Hughes Wallis Noble Rhoda Hughes Susie Rink Mable Jackson Ida Shepard Leslie Stephenson The Field Meet at Platteville last Fri day i-esulted in a victory for Darlington. Platteville came out second best, Dodgeville third, and Mineral Point fourth. Nine schools were entered. Henning, a Platteville student, won the gold medal. Frank Stone, of Mineral Point, won a silver medal in the 440 yard run. Courtney Sherman took third in the mile run. Our boys showed up well and ought with careful practice to make a' much better record next year. In the speaking contest, Curtis Callow of Cobb, took first place. George Chat ter ton, of Spring Green, second place, and Bonnie Blanchard, of Blanchard ville, third place. Ella Dexter, of Lone Rock, would have taken second place, and Ruscal Martin, of Rewey would have tied for third place, but they both spoke over time. The two speakers who took first and second places in our League contest tied for fourth place. Commencement will soon he here and everybody is busy getting ready for ex aminations. The seniors are especially 7 busy just now and are beginning to re alize that while the senior year is the best year of the course it is also the hardest. They are hoping to complete the year in good shape, and tlie com mencement work is coming on very nicely. The question of where to have the class play this year has given us many hours of worry. The city 7 hall is used for the picture show and is therefore not available for practice. The stage is very small and there are poor accommo dations for dressing rooms, scenery, etc. The question of having a tent had to be given up on account of the expense. The question of making over the main room of the high school had to he given up on account of the great amount of work. The matter has been solved at last. We are so fortunate as to secure the German Hall, where we shall have seat ing room for nearly four hundred, a large stage with beautiful scenery, and large dressing rooms. The program for the week is as fol lows : Class Day Exercises (Masque of Col umbus) Friday evening, May 7 28, 8:00 p. m., German Hall. (Tickets on sale at J. J. Hauscom s, Thursday morning. 25c for reserved seat. 15c for general admission). Baccalaureate address, at the Primi tive Church, Sunday evening, May 30, 7:30. Class Play 7 , ‘What became of Parker''. Wednesday and Thursday evenings, June 2 and 3, 8:00 p. m., German Hall. Commencement Exercises, Friday 7 morning, June 4, 9:30, Primitive Church. Alumni Banquet. Friday evening, June 4. The boys of the Intermediate and and Second Primary of the Second Ward, and the German School, held a field meet at the fair grounds Wednes day evening. The meet was presided over by 7 the high school boys, who conducted it strictly according to the rules, and showed a remarkable degree of fairness and interest in all the events. The score was 43 to 41 in favor of the Public School boys. Will Ryan of the Public Schools, and Will Kergen. of the German School, tied for individual honors, each winning 26 points. Everyone who was present was delighted with the spirit of fair ness and good feeling that character ized the meet. The feeling of friendli ness and good will between the two schools is certainly very gratifying. Sale of Residence. Richard Venning last week sold his place in the western part of Mineral Point city to W. H. Jackson, who has taken possession of the same. Mr. Venning has moved to the Homing house in the rear of the Horning store building. The sale was made through the Mineral Point Real Estate Agency. Struck by Lightning.

(he morning of that fearsome, uncertain day on which the bonds were to bo made fast, where a tiny path yet leads back, when each tries to peer into the future and wonders and doubts and hesitates. They were alone, and she drew near him, aware and watchful. “Harold, dearest, in a few hours it will all be over. Can you grasp it all? But did you dream of me last night?” “Yes, ownest. I saw you as a black, marvelous swan, drifting placidly all alone on a mirrored lake, with here and there a flat, floating leaf. And then I. a humble, joyous swan, too, began to float out to you. And my soul took fire, dearest, and I thrilled all over as you swung superbly' around, and I wished to be a poet, with a liv ing, passionate pen, and I wished my self an earth god and that a raging wind would swoop down upon you that I might seize you in my arms and defy the storm god. And I could smell sweet incense and hear the tinkling of Innumerable bells and could feel the delirium of a burning heart, and again I wished to be a poet that I might sing”— “But. Harold, do you really love me?” He paused, breathed deep and poured out his soul. “Yes, dearest, I think you are it.” And then she held up her vibrant lips, confident, satisfied.—Puck. Soliloquy of the Engagement Ring. I am considered a brilliant success in literature, though many people ac cuse me of plagarisra, the popular crit icism of ray work being “that old, old story.” It is a pity I am so bright, however, considering the conversations I have to listen to every evening. Last night he remarked sixty-five times, “I love you so, dear,” and sixty-five times she replied, “Do you. dear?” ITe tells them all “I love you as man never loved before.” Isn’t he clever to find so many new ways of doing some thing so old? Personally I can see no difference in his methods myself. They held on to me with both hands last evening, but I insisted upon cut ting them. The man and I can always get ground a pretty girl. The man owes all his happiness to me. Only through my influence Is ho able to hold her hands in his and taste the .sweetness of her lips, yet already has he forgotten me in his Jonging#for a wedcUng ring. Men are so ungrateful, but I will bide my time. Methlnks I will soon be avenged. I am the ‘‘best seller” on the market. -Pack. j- ' CHURCHES OF MINERAL POINT St. Paul’s—Catholic. Kev.
