By the way, did you ever notice what your toes think when a fat woman steps on them in the street car? Anyhow, the proposed society of the Sponsors of the United States navy will include a lot of pretty girls. It is said that Cleveland girls are smoking cigarettes to ward off mo$ qnitoes. That is not all they will ward off. The overproduction of French wine, genuine and bogus, is almost as fraught with peril as overindulgence cf It. A Georgia man shot the postmaster because his mail was late.

The flea on the tail of the dog of the wife of the wild man of Borneo will doubtless be surprised to find that motor cars have invaded the island. As a result of this anti-whiskers crusade, an Iowa man shaved off his spinnakers and was thrown out of the house by his wife, who mistook him for a tramp. That dinosaur is variously reported as having been found in Oregon, Wy oming and Montana. But remember his immense size, which probably ac counts for it. Automobiles are being sold in Bor neo, and we may suppose that the wild men over there will at once join in the march of civilization by apply ing for jobs as chauffeurs. Mme.

One way to get rid of a mosquito, explains the Baltimore Sun, is to firm ly slap him in the face, and at the time exclaiming haughtily: “That for you, sir,” or madam, as the case may be. Complaining about the quality of the modern umbrella, Mr. Max Henry Newman writes to a newspaper: “A good umbrella is somewhat like a good poet, hard to find.” Why not buy one. Max? If two Moorish armies fight five or six days with a total death list of 32, both sides included, how long could all the real and make-believe soldiers in Morocco stand up in front of a few French regiments? A lecturer on “The Philosophy of Art” at the Harvard summer school declared that beauty, which is a func tion or entelechy subsisting between an organism and its object when the adaptation of one to the other is com plete and harmonious with the organ ism’s act of perception, is grounded uP°n the psycho-physical character of the organism, which determines the form of the beautiful object. All of which goes to confirm us in the belief that beauty is oply skin deep after all. Scientists in the bureau of ethnology at Washington say men are practical ly of the same stature and have the same size of brain vto-day as before the dawn of history when they were busy hunting the woolly rhinoceros in the Thames and Seine valleys. The scien tists ought not to talk this way. Do they expect any one to believe that it took as much brains to hunt a woolly rhinoceros, inquires the Indianapolis Star, skeptically, as it does to chase the festive baseball or pursue and cap ture the fugitive dollar? That mother-in-law jokeTwhich has been overworked anyway, will have to be called in. A wealthy Cleveland law yer was so disconsolate because his mother-in-law left hig home that he went to the courts and took out a writ of habeas corpus to get her back again. He based his application on the state ment that the estimable lady had been Induced through misrepresentation to forsake his domicile and was restrain ed by force from coming back. The mother-in-law, speaking generically, has been grossly wronged. At last she is getting a full vindication. The navy department is in need of names for new battleships and will ask congress to legislate on the sub ject at the next session. The present law provides that battleships shall be named after the states, but befote this law was passed many of these state names had been given.to ships of other classes and the list Is now exhausted with the exception of Utah. There is prejudice against using the name of the Mormon state, yet as more battle ships are projected, remarks the In dianapolis Star, something must be - done. \ METHOD IN HIS SOLICITUDE. Willie’s Deep Interest in Playmate’s Health Explained. This story Js well In keeping 'with the spirit of the age, says the New York Tribune. A Bronx man tells It about his little boy. The neighbor’s young hopeful was very ill, and Willie and the other youngsters in the blopk had been asked not to make any noise in the streets. The neighbor’s bell rang one day and she opened it to find Willie standing bashfully on her front steps. "How is he to-day?” he inquired in a shy whisper. “He's better, thank you, dear, and what a thoughtful child you are to come and ask.” Willie stood a moment on one foot and then burst forth again, “I’m orful sorry Jimmy’s sick.” The mother was profoundly touched. She could find no further words to say, but simply kissed him. Made still bolder by the caress, Willie began to back down the steps, repeating at in tervals his sorrow for his playmate’s illness. At the bottom step he halted and looked up. “If Jimmy should die,” he asked, “kin I have his drum?” FOR SELFISH ENDS. The Efforts Being Made by the Ameri can Medical Association. The Political activity of the Ameri can Medical Association has become so pronounced as to cause comment in political circles especially, as the the avowed purpose of the Doctors of the “Regular’’ or Allopathic school, of which the Association is chiefly com posed, is to secure the passage of such laws as will not only prevent the sale of so-called “Patent” medicines, but will restrict the practice of medi cine and healing to the “schools” now recognized. This in many states would prevent the growing practice of Os I teopathy, and in nearly every state would prevent the healers of the Christian Science and mental science belief from practicing those sciences in which the faith of so many intelli gent people is so firmly rooted. The American Medical Association has a "Committee on Legislation,” and the committee has correspond ents in practically every township — some 16,000 correspondents in all. This committee at the last session of the American Medical Association held in June of this year expressed a hope that a larger number of physi cians than heretofore will offer them selves as candidates for Congress at the first opportunity. In its annual report this Committee said: "To meet the growing demands of' the move merit, however, particularly it the work of activfe participation in State legislation is undertaken, a larger clerical force must be employed.” This is almost the first time in the history of the United States that any organized class has frankly avowed the purpose of capturing legislatures and dominating legislation in their owsi selfish interests. The American Medical Association has about 65,000 members of whom 27,000 are “fully constituted mem bers” and the rest are members be cause of their affiliation with state or local societies. The Association owns real estate in Chicago valued at $111, 781.91 and its total assets are $291, 567.89. Its liabilities, at the time of the annual report which was made at the June meeting, amounted to only $21,906. The excess of assets over liabilities is increasing at the rate of about $30,000 a year, and the purpose of the organization is to dominate the field of medicine, and by crushing all competitions by securing the pas sage of prohibitive legislation, compet all of the people of the United States to pay a doctor’s fee every time the most simple remedy is needed. Punctured His Eloquence. A lawyer in Johnstown, X Y„ while defending a little boy who had been apprehended in the act of making a surreptitious entrance under the Air grounds fence, drew for the jury a most pathetic picture of the prisoner's “poor old widowed mother with the tears streaming down her face and her gray head bowed in sorrow at the thought of her little boy being incar cerated.” The youthful offender cut in at this point with “Please, sir, Mr. Lawyer, my mother ain't a widow.” "Shut up, darn you,” said the lawyer. “I'm trying this case, not you.”—Law i._ Puzzled. The bard from the city had sold suf ficient verses to spend a week in a rural boarding house. Waving off the swarms of June bugs and mosquitoes, the bard sat penning his lines by the yellow light of a kerosene lamp. “How I love this madrigal!” he mused to himself. The horny-handed farmer, who sat greasing his boots, looked up in sur prise. “Gracious!” he drawled. “Wherais she?” “Who?" asked the astonished bard. “Why, the gal yeou just said yeou loved.” Bobbin Boys’ Wages. John B. Lennon, treasurer of the American Federation of Labor, deliv ered recently an address on strikes. Turning to the amusing1 features of the strike question, Mr. Lennon said: “I remember a strike of bobbin boys, a just strike, and one that suc ceeded. These boys conducted their fight well, even brilliantly. Thus the day they turned out they posted in the spinning room of their employers’ mill a great placard inscribed with the words: “ ‘The wages of sin is death, but the wages of the bobbin boys is worse.’ ’’ An inherited Tendency. A Cleveland society woman gave a party to nine friends of her young son, aged six. To add to the pleasure of the occasion she had the ices frozen In the form of a hen and ten chickens. Each child was allowed to select his chicken as it was served. Finally she came to the son of a prominent poli tician.1 . “Which chicky will you have, Ber tie?” she asked. “If you please, Mrs. H., I think I’ll take the mamma hen,” was the polite reply.—Lippincott’s. i MOROCCAN TOWNS AND COAST IN ZONE OP PRE8ENT TROUPLE.

Ter.—Mistaken in the dark for a ‘ bootlegger,” Sylvestei Morris, aged 74, a wealthy retired Methodist minister, was shot and killed at the corner of North Second and Cincinnati avenue late Thursday night by Deputy United State^ Mar shal C.

One ball passed through the heart, causing instant death. The team dashed for home, and neighbors who had heard the shooting came out to in vestigate the cause, and found the dead body in the wagon. When Officer Wilson learned of his mistake he surrendered to the police and was given over to the custody of Deputy Marshal Sam Cones. • •> HELD ON HABEAS CORPUS.
