It came from the government j museum at Christiania, and la an exact mmm o V"l lklUUlU, 14 1 1 11 Iii CH CACkV'W cPJr of two deeds of very ancient date, tne oriKinal deeds having been pre- , .

The deeds are for a certain farm which the Sogard family has pos sessed for centuries and upon which two of his brothers Simon of Web- ster City and John of Iowa City were born. The first deed is dated July 1, 1381, or more than 500 years ago. A better realization of the age of this deed is had when it is remembered that the Sogard family was in posses- sion of the farm more than 100 years before Columhus discovered America and it is probable that their ownership rl o t a n ttu i. !i BCa mwt as s K-i, L- t Vtan I c3 t V rar r in... n " f ouvrM by this deed.

A gentle man from a neighboring town tells the Troy Times that he has seen the ancient document alluded to. but was unable to read it, as it is written in the Norwegian language. He adds that the property is In the town of Oalen, - i near the town of Hamar, and that the largest city near the place is Chris-j tiania, and that the document states it is given in the reign of King Hakon, I by the grace of God king of Norway and Sweden.

So common were the outrages becoming in the district that the attention of the authorities was being drawn to the matter. The Clerk Fainted. A young lady whose sense of shame would not permit her to address a cer tain unmarried clerk in ordinary Eng lish, called for a pair of garters thus: "It is my desire to obtain a pair of circular elastic appendages and ex panded by means of oscillating bur nished steel appliances that sparkle like particles of gold leaf set with Alaska diamond and which are util ized for keeping in positron the ha- j btliments of the lower extremities which inate delicacy forhi-is me to mention." The clerk fainted. Forgot Who It Waa. A small boy In a neighboring town was being gotten ready to go to Sun day school for the first time.

On her latest trip from Amsterdam to New York the ocean liner Werken dam had for a steerage passenger a young woman whose air. manner and speech dearly showed that she would have been entirely at home among the saloon passengers. This was Miss Marie Lowenthal, and she traveled among the poor with the sole object of having a greater opportunity to cheer and help rhem during the voyage across the Atlantic. On the trip she earned the title 'queen of the steer age," and as she stepped ashore she was followed by hearty exclamations of "God bless you!" Hers was a con spicuous figure as she stood among the crowd of steerage passengers, most of whom had the round contented faces which one associates with Duich peo ple. Young and beautiful, she ware COStly furs over a gown of silk. She comes to this country on business for her father, who is one of the richest furriers in Amsterdam. His confidence in his daughter s business judgment is shown by the fact that he trusts to her care the conclusion of a heavy deal in which she is interested. Though a steerage passenger, she dressed in style showing that her modiste is thoroughly up to date. Captain De Vries gazed admiringly after Miss Low enthal as she calmly walked ashore, unmindful of the astonishment caused by her appearance among the poor im migrants. "She is the angel of the steerage," he said. "Of course, she does not have to travel that way. but she prefers to do it. partly because she wished to save money, and partly to n among the poorer folk, whom it is her delight to serve. Stingy? Not a hit of it. Mise Marie Lowenthal is one of the most generous women alive. It is her delight to give to others, to relieve distress. She has a large al lowance, but spends most of it in helping the poor. She spends her life among them and is looked upon as a sort of guardian angel by the poor of her native city. One of her fads is to travel as cheaply as possible in order to save money for philanthropic work. That is why she has come over in the steerage. She has crossed the ocean several times that way. and if you could see all she does for the poor, frightened emigrants you would not wonder that they call her the angel of the steerage."

Wom en have no higher thought from week's end to week's end than winning head prizes, says the Emporia (Kas.) Ga zette. They grow nervous, irascible, had-tempered and ugly playing cards. Little crow's feet appear at the cor ners of their eyes after a'n evening with whist, and deep, vertical lines plow themselves just above their noses. There are more plain women in Em poria who lost their bloom at the rent ed card tables than there are women who have worn themselves out oer the kitchen stove.
