RAIitflLlCONFINED TO CUT Of CONWiY LITTLE TELL IN COUNTY CITY WAS EXCLSIVELY FAVOR ED BY WEDNESDAY’S GOOD SHOWER. From Thursday’s Dally. The city of Conway was almost the exclusive beneficiary of yester day afternoon’s delightful shower, ac cording- to reports gathered this morn ing by Local Manager G. W. Sam mons of the Southwestern Telephone Co. It -was learned today that little or no rain fell outside of a radius of about two miles from the center of the city, although the government guage at Prof. G. H. Burr's residence showed a fall of .60 inch. No rain fell at Hamlet, Vilonia, Wooster, Mayflower, Holland, Round Mountain, the railroad tunnel and several other points in the county from which reports were received over the long distance telephone this morning. At Lollie there was a light shower, sufficient to settle the dust, and R. Haydon -of Round Mountain reports there was a good shower two miles west of his home. The shower, however, was purely local in its character and was of lit tle benefit to crops in this vicinity. The dust was laid in Conway, how ever, and gardens which had begun to burn up were greatly benefitted. PICNIC POSTPONED. The Log Cabin Democrat was asked today to announce that the picnic ar ranged to be held at Mayflower July 4, has been postponed until a date to be decided upon later, in order not to interfere with the picnic at Rocky Gap. , . DEPORTED A TWO-YEAR-OLD Governor of Russian Town of Kursk, Sent Bab\« Away With Strong Escort of Soldiers. A baby was arrested and by means of a formidable-looking order, properly signed, sealed and delivered, the gov ernor of the town of Kursk, In central Russia, has made himself sufficiently ridiculous to insist upon the solemn deportation, under a stern escort of armed soldiers, of an innocent two year-old baby boy! The child is the son of a Jewish dentist, M. Kohan. i The latter, with his wife, was ordered j to leave the town a few days ago. J The couple complied with the order, but left their infant son with friends, as he was 4n too delicate a state of health to travel during the cold weather. Under the pretext that Jew ish children must not live without their parents outside a certain pre scribed area, the zealous police ar rested the baby and ordered the friends of M. Kohan to take immediate steps to send the boy away. M. Kohan’s friends asked for a delay so that they might communicate with the parents, but the governor ordered the baby to be sent away under an armed escort comprised of soldiers with fixed bayonets. This implies traveling with criminals in rough conveyances and sleeping in prisons en route until the infant reaches his parents. HAD THE DOCTORS GUESSING English Hospital Physicians at Least Were Willing to Admit They Could Not Diagnose All Cases. Mr. Roger W. Babson says that in looking up appendicitis cases he learned that in 17 per cent of the operations for that disease the post mortem examinations showed that the appendix was in perfect condition. “The whole subject,” he adds, “re minds me of a true story I heard in London recently. In the hospital? there, the ailment of the patient, when he is admitted, is denoted by certain letters, such as ‘T. B.’ for tuberculo sis. An American doctor was exam ining these history slips when his curiosity was aroused by the number on which the letters 'G. O. K.’ ap peared. He said to the physician who was showing him around: “ ‘There seems to be a severe epi demic of this G. O. K. in London. What is it, anyhow?’ " ‘Obi that means “God only knows,” ’ replied the English physi cian.”—Open Door. Stories Old and New. Some men are born story tellers, some achieve the story telling faculty, while others—who constitute t .1 great majority—can only sit in amaze ment and listen to the man who can glibly reel them off, one after another, as if they were all new, fresh and original. You can recognize a good story by the number of times you meet it, for the good story is picked up and repeated, interchanged, en larged, improvised and spread, until it Is liable to reappear, as natural, or in disguise, at the four corners of the earth, and at widely separated periods of time. That’s what makes the modem story teller such a delight, because until he finishes you cannot know whether you are about to meet an old friend or be initiated into novel mysteries. The redeeming fea ture of it is that every year another crop of listeners grows to maturity for whom the old ones are always new, and who, in consequence, must be the perpetual inspiration and the liv ing encouragement to the story teller. Tentative Denial from Mr. Gloom. “I note,” stated J. Fuller Gloom, "that an anxious inquirer asks whether I am any kin to Cordelia Killjoy. I do not know what Miss Killjoy will say about it, but as far as I am in dividually concerned there is no re lationship. However, in cases of this sort it is well not to make the denial too emphatic. Jim Dinger, the gam bling man, became converted during a revival, and when he arose to con fess his shortcomings he was greeted with such hearty indorsement that he declared with some heat: ‘It’s all right for yo’ people to rejoice when a lost sheep returns to de fold, but yo’ don’t need to be so ’thusiastic about it—I ain’t so much worse dan some o’ de rest o’ you!’”—Kansas City Star. In the Fatherland. The school children i:a Germany are taught to swim w ithout the use of wa ter. It is claimed that the proper stroke and motions of the arms and legs are more readily acquired in this manner than in the water, as is the more gen eral way of teaching swimming The student is suspended by a wide belt from an overhead rail, while the feet are attached to a pair of ropes running over pulleys and adjustable to various requirements. The pupils thus suspended are then taught howr to perform the movements of the breast stroke until the action becomes almost instinctive. » World’s Longest Caiileway. The longest cableway in existence’ at present is that to be found in the Andes, in Peru. It was built to carry ore from the famous Famatina copper mines, situated at an altitude ap proaching that of Mont Blanc. Until quite recently the ore had to be brought by pack mules to Chilecito, a journey that occupied two and a hal> days and was only feasible during six months of the year; whereas by means of the ropeway the journey can now be done in four hours and ah the rear round LEADERS ARE MEN OF ACTION Having an Idea, They Have Impfeaaad It on Their Fellows and the World Haa Moved. The nations are a series of short experiments. A nation may dtsin- ! tegrate inside of a century. It may flower inside of 30 years. It would be possible that a middle western town like Cedar Rapids should tomorrow begin to put forth a group of heroes, who should overrun the earth with ! the charm and vigor of their ideas, j A sudden quickening, mind catching flame from mind, and once again you would have the miracle of Plato’s Athens, of Elisabeth's London. If row and again some man had not decided to stop drifting and take hold of things and reshape them, there would have been no discovery, no invention, no art. He might have said, as many like to say: “Why not let my big idea rest quietly? There is time enough in the long future Why be in a hurry? Why so hot, lit tle man? There is quiet sleep in the churchyard for the men that have gone before, and soon I too will be there.” But, prevailing, he said: “Now is the time, and the place is here, to bring my idea to action. I insist on being heard. Here is the plan - We will not postpone it till next century. We will try it now.” It is our business to make our ideas prevail. We are not to go si lent, nor to retire from activity, be lieving that our nation is long-lived, and that our thought has an eternity In which to come to pass. We must speak up. WTe must strike early and strike hard. The time is short. It is right to wish to get something done in our own lifetime.—Harper's Weekly. REFLECTS LIFE OF SECTION Homespun Language Well Described as Having Race-Old Distillation of Wisdom. j The life of every section is reflected ) in its speech. Why should It not be taught pride in the very archaisms It possesses? We have a storehouse on which we can never afford to turn the key. Take a lower Mississippi sen tence that Clemens might have cop ied: “There’s been a fray on the river—I don't know how the fraction began, but Dan and Bill feathered into the Joneses with their rifles." Agincourt bowmen would have under stood "feathered into.” In the tongue of the Appalachians i storm is tempest, gay is gamesome, ; strong is sur-vigorous, the air is the j element, agriculture is tilth and hus bandry, medicine is physick. The pea ! pie speak in metaphor as readily as ! the Tudors. One can hear in the Great Smokies, as in Marlowe, of cowards whose blood is snow-broth and heroes bold as brass. To become ashamed of speech with a colloquial flavor is to become ashamed of the very speech that ie primitive thews and muscles. The homespun language has a past; in it beats the heart of democratic feeling, and its sayings and phrases have a race-old distillation of wisdom.—New York Post. Whiatler Did Not Care. One day the late James McNeill Whistler, the famous artist, went into a London hat shop. He stood there bareheaded, as the clerk had taken his hat to another part of the shop to match it. As he leaned idly against the counter, a man rushed up to him, took off his hat, thrust it into WrhisL ler’s face, and exclaimed in anger: “Look here, I want you to understand that I know something about hats, and I insist that this hat doesn’t fit me!” Whistler looked at the man with in terest; then he smiled politely. “Please put the hat on,” he said, and the ai^gry man did so. Whistler looked him over critically from head to foot; then in his peculiar, drawling manner, he said: “Quite right, quite right, sir, it does not fit. Neither does your coat; and furthermore, your waistcoat is tod large, and your trousers are a horribls color.” After WTiistler went out, it took the proprietor half an hour to convince the man that It was not one of the clerks who had insultet him.—Youth’s Companion. The Winner. . A benevolent old lady In one of the streets which still retain the red brick houses of old-time New York looked out of her parlor window one day and saw a man walking up and down the sidewalk, apparently in great dejection. There was something pa thetic and appealing in his maimer; so she took a dollar bill, put it in an envelope and wrote on the envelope, “Never say die.” She slipped out of the house ir. the most casiifcl manner she could assume and handed the envelope to the man as she passed him. Next day the same melancholy man called at her house and presented her with ten dollars. “It’s funny,” he said, “you’re the only one that backed that horse called ‘Never Say Die.’ ” Character of Burns. Scotland’s darling, and the darling of a mighty multitude who are not of Scotland, was impulsive and did many things that he ought not to have done; but at heart the author of the “Cot ter’s Saturday Night” was brave, hon orable, generous, and, in the main, manly as it is possible for a man to be. feurns had his faults, but they were not the fault* of a "bad man.”— Chicago Examiner. ...-~ CENTENARY CF GREAT EVENT Natives of India Honored Memory of Missionary Who Taught Their Ancestors. Few events grip the her.rt and In terest of man sufficiently to command, after 100 years, an international, or even national, recognition. In purely secular circles the fact that Adonlram Judson landed on Indian shores 100 years ago may excite little interest, but to the Christian world it was an event second to but few in the history of the Christian church At the opening service more than 3,000 native Christians filled to over flowing the two largest audience rooms in Rangoon, while hundreds were turn ed away for want of room. The second session was giv^n to reminiscences of Judson by those who had seen him. It was notable that of the five living missionaries who had seen Judson all were women. These were followed by a simultaneous pray er service, it having been arranged that at the same hour in America and all Baptist mission fields they should unite with the great centennial gather ing In simultaneous prayer. The music of the entire celebration was in charge of two choirs, a Burraan and a Karen, which rendered the most difficult English anthems, quartets and solos, to the great delight and admira tion of all present. After three days at Rangoon the scene of the celebration was trans ferred to Moulmein for two days, and then to Mandalay and other places of interest, elosing at Bassein on Decem ber 30.—Christian Herald. TOO MUCH FOR HER PATIENCE Daughter Was Used to Stranger* Bothering Her Mother, But Hero She Drew the Line. Veteran of three suffragette pa rades and as many D. A. R. campaigns as she was, she completely lost her poise in an upper Broadway street car, recites the New York Times. A well-groomed woman of at least forty summers and a two-slit skirt, left her seat on the opposite side of the car and took that directly in front of the young veteran and her mother. "Pardon me,” began the newcomer, addressing the elder of the two, "I’m in trouble about my canary bird. He doesn’t sing, mopes on his perch, and has completely lost his appetite You look so like a woman who solves her own household problems that I have taken the liberty to ask you about one of mine. What shall I do for my ca nary?” “Take him to a bird doctor," snapped the daughter. Mother and questioner alike gasped in astonishment. ”1 don’t seriously object when strange women ask my mother’s ad vice as to what they should buy while she Is trying to do her own shopping," continued the younger woman, “where to find a good dentist, how to make a harem skirt out of an old sealskin jacket, or the best way to make bread. She is so matronly and good-natured^ But I draw the line at trying to make a bird doctor out of her.” I If a Naturalist Painted. If I were to paint the short days of winter I should paint two towering ice* bergs approaching each other like promontories, for morning and eve ning, with cavernous recesses, and a solitary traveler wrapping his cloak about him and bent forward against the driving storm, just entering the narrow pass. I would paint the light of a taper at midday, seen through a cottage window, half buried in snow and frost. ... In the foreground should appear the harvest, and far in the background, through the pass, should be seen the sowers in the fields and other evidences of spring. On the right and left of the approaching ice bergs the heavens should be shaded off from the light of midday to mid night with its stars, the sun being loif in the sky.—Henry David Thoreaa. Sheffield Cutlery Lag*. Sheffield is famed throughout tha worfd for its cutlery, but this is no longer the city’s chief or even second ary industry. In the finest class of cutlery Sheffield probably still excels, but good scissors from Germany are now sold in the English town for less money than the grinding of the com peting article alone costs in Sheffield. The leading cutlery firm, doing a world export trade, operates without the uee of a telephone, and another, of equal fame, occupies quarters of the most primitive character. It is in the production of armaments and ship material that Sheffield now stands to the fore. New Zealand Wireless, Two high power wireless stations at Awanul, in the extreme north of New: Zealand, and at Awarua, in the ex treme south, have just been opened for business. Tests made have indi cated that messages may be sent and received at Awanui and Awarua over a distance of several thousand miles. There are now six wireless stations under the control of the dominion, comprising those at Chatham ls-( hinds, Awarua, Awanui, Wellington, Auckland postoffice, and Auckland ex hibition. “I assure you, madam, these kitch en knives represent the greatest value ever offered at the price."
