Convicts In penitentiaries show a higher average of .intelligence than the general population, Dr. Herman Adler of Cleveland Foundation's Just ice survey told members of the Cleve land Academy of Medicine at a re cent meeting. Repeaters, men returned to the pen itentiary time after time, show a high er average Intelligence than those who learn their lessons the first time, Doctor Adler said. Criminals who are caught and con victed are not necessarily those least intelligent, but those with an antago nizing personality, Doctor Adler ex plained. An engaging personality Is the most frequent cause of miscar riages of justice, he added. Ten million people In the United States are classed as feeble-minded, that Is, they would be confined if brought into court or a mental clinic, he said. These conclusions were derived from tabulation of mental testa of 1,700, 000 men in the draft army and 1,000 convicts in the Illinois state peniten tiary. The tests in turn were con firmed by examination of selected groups picked according to mllitary qualiflcatlons before the tests were made. BIBLES TAKEN AWAY TRAMP MAKES CLAIM Wanderer Says He Owns an Interest in a Mine. A stranger bearing all the earmarks of a Weary Willie stopped in One»' ma. S. D„ for a short time while mak ing his Jourivpy on foot to the Black Hills. He gives his name as William Flag 1er and claims to hull from Michigan. He stated while iiere that he lind walked the entire distance'from Mich igan to One.....in and that he would complete the Remainder of his Journey to the Black Ilills on foot. Flagler alleges that he is a nephew of the lute H. M. Fingier, the million aire, and that he is heir to one-fourth of the Flagler estate in the famous Homestnke mine at Lend, and that his purpose in making the tiresome overland journey on foot to the Black Hills is to claim Ills share of the mint Sounds Differ In Speed. Very loud sounds travel through the alt more rapidly than ordinary sounds. Dr. Dnyton C. Miller of the Uase School of Applied Science, who has been experimenting with big guns, finds that the noise of their explosion travels 1,240 feet in the first second, or exactly 22 per cent more rapidly than low sounds. Two hundred feet from the source of sound, however, the speed Is only 5 per cent more than normal, and at ,500 feet the velocity of the sound has risen to normal. Decline of the Parlor. Oue of the targe manufacturing companies of the United States is en gaged in the construction of a great number of houses for its employees and while there are many novel fea tures in the wny of making conven ieuces. the most striking thing about the homes Is the total absence of the usual parlor. The space Is thrown in to the other rooms. It looks as If the parlor was out of fashion. Red-Edged Copies in Hotel Rooms Carried Off. The last thing in the world you'd expect a person to steal is a Bible. But the replacement of that Inevitable red-edged copy of Holy Writ you see In your hotel room wherever you go, amounts to 5 per cent yearly, accord ing to A. B. T. Moore, Chicago, na tional secretary of the Gideons, trav eling men's religious organization. "Some take them, rend them, be come penitent and write in, asking how much the Bible is worth, or send ing $5 or so," he said. "Others mere ly take them." There are about 410,000 Bibles in the hotels of the United States and Canada. They used to cost 35 cents euch in carload lots, now they're 85 cents each. They're in 50 per cent of the hotels of America, In 75 per cent of the Let ter hotels. Some hotels refuse them, hut very few. The order is supplied with funds to procure them through gifts from religiously-inclined individ uals and from church collections. LEGEND IN NEW CLOTHING Story of Samson and Delilah as It Might Have Been, but Undoubt edly Was Not. "Now, Sammy," began Delilah, coax ingly, as she advanced toward him with her hands behind her holding a pair of scissors. "Just look up that tree—see the little birdie?" And she coquettishly displayed the gold fillings in her five front teeth. Samson could never refuse Delilah anything when she flashed all that gold on him. Delilah gently took hold of a lock of Samson's hair with lier left hand, but before she could snip It off with her right, there was a thunderous knock on the door. 'Twas a man on horseback. "Away ! Away !" cried this ancient Paul Revere. "The flood is coming down Mount Dingus. Flee thee hence I" "Oh, Sammy 1" walled Delilah, drop ping the scissors. "And I Just paid off the mortgage on the house this very week. Now all that money Is wasted. Oh, Sammy!" Samson thought hard for a moment. Then Delilah flashed her teeth once more. "Up! Go up in the attic!" com manded Samson. Then he planted a kiss on Delilah's eyebrow and she flew. Samson dashed out the door and lifted up the house in both hands and tied the doghouse around his neck. And thus stood he, with Delilah high and dry, while the flood rushed down Mount Dingus and by. "Gosh !" said Delilah to herself, aft er It was all over. "I'm glad I didn't cut his hair off before the flood."— Detroit Free Press. FREEDOM MUST BE BOUGHT And the Prie» to Be Paid Is Complete Maetery of All Paaalone and Appotltea. Freedom Is not a gift, but an at tainment It does not characterize the state of nature, but flowers from the growth of personality and civiliza tion. Action Issues from character and there Is Inner discord and the feel ing of restraint until the Individual is happy and satisfied in his act and attitude. A divided will marks Incomplete personality, and it Is not a free will. Every man must win his own free dom. He must desire it enough to pay Its price, and Its price is the mas tery of passions and appetites. As a man gains mastery over his own powers and desires he is free. Resolutions are good, because they witness to the sense of Incomplete self mastery and to the vision of greater self-control and freedom that are pos sible.—Minneapolis Journal. Original Galoehes. The fashionable galoshes that are now flapping about the ankles of pretty girls were first Introduced In America about 1830 In Boston. The galoshes or boots were as ugly and clumsy ns they are today, hut were even more popular. They required peculiar care, as the manufacturers had little knowledge of the use of rubber gum. In winter they froze hard and stiff, and had to be thawed out before they could be worn, and care had to be taken not to. thaw them too well, or they would run into a sticky mass. In the summer they got sticky anil shapeless unless kept on Ice and taken out during a rain storm only. No one who was anyone thought his or her toilet complete without n pair. They had to tie watched carefully, for once they start ed to rot the smell was terrible, and it was necessary to take them out nnd bury them. Welding Optical Glass. The Improved method of welding optical glass worked out at the Unit ed States bureau of standards, gives perfect union with practically no dis tortion. and is adapted for many pur poses, such as making glass cells and hollow prisms, joining lenses and clos ing glass tubes with accurately fit ting flat ends. The shaped-glass ob ject is heated In an electric furnace to the annealing point, when the appli cation of a small blowpipe flame along the edges to be united produces a quick welding. Unable to Choose National Tree. American forests are so rich with Infinite variety that President Wilson is unable to name a choice for a na tional tree, he wrote to the American Forestry association, which is com piling a national referendum as to what tree best represents America. "Speaking for myself," said the Pres ident, "I find that I am quite unable to choose amongst the Infinite variety and richness of American forests." Plan War on Hair Seals. Hunting hair seals by airplane and destroying them by machine-gun fire has been seriously proposed to the Canadian fisheries department by fish ermen, says n report from Vancouver B. C. The scheme proposed and tried Inst spring of trapping the salmon-de stroylng hair seals at the mouth of the Fraser river by means of set lines and short laterals armed with strong hooks brought a measure of success, but was not entirely a victory over the wise mammalia of the ocean. The new proposal Is to come down on them front the unsuspected heights, as they bask on the sandbars In thou-< sands, and pour a stream of bullets into them. The Brown-Hart Co.

This question is being asked by faculty and business men's commit tees in every store in town. When they get through witth the stores they are going to tackle the residenc es and farms. Many of he storekeep ers reply that they have been em ploying one, two or three students for years. Search for jobs has inspired tihe Rev. H. H. Mitchell, rector of St. Mark's Episcopal church, to this: It you wish to run your Ford, Get a student; If witih work you're feeling bored, Get a student; If your lock or watch won't go. If your girl has not a beaux To take her to the picture show, Get a student. If you need help in your store, Get a student; If you find you need still more, Get a student; To peddle goods from door to door: To do most any kind of chore, Or anything, on sea or shore, Get a student. If you need a good stenog, Get a student; ,If you cannot keep a dog.

Temperatures were generally not far from season able in all sections. The days were quite warm but the nights were de lightfully cool, in fact light frost oc curred in some of 'the higher valleys. A few light and widely scattered showers occurred in the southern counties but over by far the larger portion of the State the drought coninued unbroken. In the great irrigated districts the .weather conditions were all that could be desired for the substantial progress of all crops and also for the prosecution of harvesting and thresh ing. the order of the day on Idaho .Tanches. Ample water for irrigation is still available on ail the large pro jects so that it is possible to supply the moisture necessary to rapid plant growth. Reports on crop progress are for the most par*, favorable, but in a (few sections wheat has been damaged 'by rust, resulting in adminished yield of grain. In the dry farm sections he long continued heat and drought are affecting vegetation adversely, and tlie crops not yet matured are at a standstill. In these sections the yields of grain and hay have been more or less reduced by these unfav orable conditions. Dry farm pastures and meadows are parched. The range is drying rapidly in most localities, but feed continues ample and stock are in good, thrifty condition. Harvesting of grain and alfalfa is being pushed and the work is going forward under most favorable weath er conditions. The hay crop is ex ceptionally heavy and the quality is all that ,ould he desired. Corn, po tatoes, beets, apples and prunes are all doing well and coming to matur ity in fine shape. — NOTICE TO CREDITORS I In the Probate Court of Bingham j County, State of Idaho, j In the Matter of the Estate of Wiliis I McMullene, Deceased.
