Texan Possesses " Feline That Strangely Fascinating to Lovers. Is Beaumont, Tex; H. H. Russell of Orange, Tex., the thriving lumber city, who Is -treasurer of Orange county, is the owner of a most remarkable cat that is strangely fascinating to sweet hearts both old and young. Not only1 that, but the friendship of this feline, whose name is Delhia, is a sure indi cation of early marriage with those whom she condescends to bestow her frendshlp and acquaintance upon. Delhia has followed thus far in her three or four year career a dozen or more couples to the altar. Mr, Russell has watched his pussy cat, and when she makes friends with the young lady, or perchance it may be an old maid, Mr. Russell prepares for the announcement that the for tunate personage is soon to be mar ried. Mr. Russell has come to regard the-cat Delhia as every one does who knows the feline,, as 'a . first aid to Cupid," and he .declares there are. sev-. eral young ladies in Orange making goo-goo eyes at his pussy endeavoring to make friends with her. The matter has leaked out that on account of this cat's strange influence on marriage, that young ladies and the young men, too, are constantly trying to steal Delhia. For this reason Mr. Russell is careful to lock the cat up securely every night before going to bed, and she is carefully watched dur ing the daytime by Mrs. Russell and the children. 1 LUMBER LUMBER We are Now Open for Bl AND Want Business LUMBER SHINGLES, DOORS, SASH, ETC.

Remark Not So Intended Really Amounted to as Much. Aaron Bancroft, the father of the historian, was a Massachusetts clergy man who revolted against the Calvin ism of the day. The young minister found himself held at arm's length by the surrounding clergy. In "The Life and Letters of George Bancroft" Mr. M. A. DeW. Howe quotes the fol lowing Item from the old minister's "Memoranda:" "An honest but very intelligent farmer of my parish, some ten years ago, accosted me in this manner: " 'Well, Mr. Bancroft, what" do you think the people of the old parish say of me now?' "I answered, T hope something good.' " 'They say, "If we find fault with him he does not mind it at all; and if we praise him he does not mind it, but keeps steadily on his" own way; we therefore have concluded that it is best to let him alone.-'-" "The farmer mentioned the fact as a subject .of laughter, but I thought, and still think that, taking the declar ation in its bearings, it was the pret tiest compliment I have received through my whole life."

Description of Last Resting Place of Genghis Khan. "Genghis Khan, the Mongol chief, in the thirteenth century proved himself one of the world's greatest warriors. His tomb exists at Edchen Koro, and is described In Count de Lesdain's "From Pekln to Sikkim:" "Two small tents, one behind the other, and con nected by a very low inner door, made of worn-out felt, and admitting through their rents the rain and tho wind, are the 'monuments' destined to perpetuate the renown of the greatest conqueror the world has known. . . .- The ashes of the body of Genghis -Khan are deposited in a kind of chest, cubic in shape, and placed on a wooden support made of small colored pillars, adorned with paintings on all Its sides, except that facing south, which is covered with a finely worked copper plate represent ing a divinity surrounded by four ani mals which are difficult to identify. . . The tomb. In fact, has not always been here, but it Is diflicult- to know exactly where the first descendants of the great emperor laid his remains." Give .Your Dog More Water. Fully one-half of canine misery comes, .from lack of drinking water. The agony of thirst frays dog temper to the vicious point, and impatient animals are much like cross humanity, ready to resent an act or look. Thoughtful families leave basins of fresh water where stray animals can find it, butjhey are .not many, and they will never do as much good as running water in places where it can be reached at will. Dog lovers are many, but they do not always give due attention, to the animals -which more than repay their kindness and affec tion. Let us make a New Tear's res olution to use our influence to estab lish a, few sensible preventives of mad dog scares, chief of which is plenty of fresh water for all animals.
