AUDUBON COUNTY JOURNAL COULDN'T WAIT FOR MARTIN Negro Preacher Had Premonition That Unpleasantness Might Follow :#•?,$]&» His Appearance. iV A negro preacher lost his way one night and sought shelter. He was told that the only place available was a haunted house down the road. The preacher had his Bible with him he went to the haunted house, built a fire in the big room and sat down to read the good book. Suddenly a small black cat brushed past him. "Isn't it nice," thought the old man, "that there is life to keep me com pany here in this gloomy place?" The cat walked over to the fireplace, ate a live coal and spat out the sparks. The old man opened the Bible and began to read aloud. Before he could go further another cat entered the room, a cat about as big as a collie, and this cat walked over to the fire place and ate two live coals and spat out the sparks. "When are we g'wine to begin?" said the little cat. "We can't do nothing till Martin comes," replied the big cat. Again the old preacher sought con solation in the Bible, but a third cat entered the room. This one was about as big as a pony, and it ate three llvt coals and spat out the sparks. "When are we g'wine to begin 7" said the little cat, and this time the biggest one answered: "We can't do nothing till Martin comes." The old man Jumped np. put his Bi ble in his back pocket and ran for the door. But before he went out he said to the biggest cat: "When Martin comes, you tell him I was here, but I could not remain."—Journal of the American Medical Association. SYSTEM IN REGULAR SAVING Money Should Be Made Easy to De posit and Then Comparatively Hard to Withdraw. "The only way for a man regularly to save money, unless he be one of those individuals possessed of an ex traordinarily unrelenting character," according to Samuel Crowther, writing in System, the Magazine of Business, "is for the money to be passed into the savings account before it reaches him —that Is, to put him In the position, once he has made his resolution, of having to make another resolution to quit saving in order to stop the process. •'Finally, take the convenience of withdrawal. A man will rightly hesi tate about going into any system of saving which locks up his funds for any long period of time. The average, worker has no great margin between income and outgo and he has to be pre pared for a r^lny day—for a birth, for a death, for a long illness. He cannot afford-to put a measurable part of ht^^ funds out of reach. If his money is to go from him for a long time he very naturally will not deed away anything like so much as he would if the money were always available. On the other hand any system of saving in which withdrawals may be easily and secret ly made is faulty. The funds should be available upon short notice, Owe should be a penalty for withdrawal, which penalty should be large enough to stop withdrawals for frivolous pur poses and yet not so large as to work anything which savors of injustice on a man who honestly needs the money." Reform Vs. Prevention. A Los Angeles woman, who has de voted. much time and effort to ag in stitution that aids unfortunate girls, referring to the difficulties she encoun tered in gaining sympathy and support for an enterprise that is not spec tacular, writes in the Los Angeles Times: "Isn't It queer that people always take so much more interest in reform ing than in preventing? Should the time ever come when I need help, I shall go out and rob a bank, or some thing like that. Then shall be cared for, and good, charitable people will bring me flowers and things." There is much truth In this, tl, Times adds. We pet and coddle the sinner, but we fail to aid those who are tempted. Making Slate Pencils. ID Europe- slate pencils are usually made by hand, but in this country they are turned out by machinery. There is In Pennsylvania a -quarry famous for the fine quality of its slate, which yields many millions of pencils an nually. The rough material is first sawed Into suitable pieces and then each piece Is cut to standard length, 5% Inches. The machinery produces the pencils In the form of cylindrical rods of that length, which are pointed on emery wheels by boys, who handle them by twos and threes with great dexterity and rapidity. Finally they are put up In pasteboard boxes of 100 each....... Official Tattooing. In some countries tattooing is adopt ed for several purposes. For example. In Samoa, when a woman marries, sev-' eral tattoo marks are placed on her, and in Fiji and Samoa the birth of each child Is registered in this way on the mother's hand. The Paper Used in BPbles.
