The fact that a woman marries a man at all Is generally proof that sho doesn't know as much as he does. A woman that Is too tender-hearted to kill a mouse don't think a tiling of putting perfumery on a bahy. Before a girl Is engaged she thinks all the men are alike: after she has been married a year she thinks they are all different. As soon as two people have a baby all Its relations begin to quarrel over what Its name shall be; by tho time this is settled they begin to quarrel over which it looks the most like; by tho time they get this Fettled there is generally another bsby.

Edward Conrad, a freight hrakoman In the employ of tho Pennsylvania Railroad Company, 'has an artificial leg 'Which can not keep out of accidents. In January, 1898, Conrad was thrown under a train and his left leg was cut off. Tho railroad com pany provided 'him with a cork limb, and' he was given tho position of gate man at 'tho Washington avenue cross ing, i Several months aEo Conrad's cork leg was run over :by a. c.ir. . About a year ago, near the Superior Street Bridge, ho was thrown under another car r.nd a second cork leg" was cut off. After the third accident, which oc curred Inst fall when Conrad lost his third false leg by getting in 'the way of a train, he decided railroading was too exciting for him and he went back to his trade stone cutting. Lately Conrad was steering a hob sled In California Avenue and ran In to a trolley car. The hoodoo artificial leg iwas crushed under the wheels, 'but no other damage was done. Conrad will not purchase another leg. He says that his attempts to avoid crutches have proved too expen sive. In addition, he Is a little apprehen sive 'that the fateful ensrfne may get after his good leg, which would imater lally complicate matters.

Beverly Dispatch, BRINGS' DETECTIVE Little Ono Takes Money JFrpM Mother's Purse.V, Minneapolis, Minn. "Sondme a de tective right awavl" said , an excited voice over tho telcpaono'yeVterday af ter. thA offlcer at police 'headquarters had said "Hello!" Hi his most pleasing manner. A rlaln clothe3 man made haste to reach tho sceno of the disturbance. Ho found t. woman who was boiling over with indignation. She was so ex cited th".t sho could hardly toll her story. She had been rbbbed of $3G, as she believed. The co?l man had left a load of fuel at the house, and he asked for the money. Unwittingly she had left her pocketbook on the kitchen table, and when she returned tho driv er was still there, but the money was gone. Then she had to get some more money and pay for tho coal. The woman's natural conclusion was that tho coal man had 'been dishonest and had taken the money. The detec tive listened to the story and then sug gested that a search" bo made for the 'bills and silver, which ohnounted to $36. As the officer was looking hlgn and low and at the same time discus sing tho matter with the woman, a small voice piped out: "Mamma, there's the money under the table." Tho "tip" was correct.and tho money was found. The four-year-old baby had playfully abstracted the cash from tho purse and thrown it on tho floor. When he heard his mother talking of tho matter he recalled what he had done. Only ono remedy In the world that wdll at once stoo itchlnesi? of the skin in any tmrt of the body; Dean's Oint ment.

Antiquarians are en gaged Jn examining a watch found yes terday on Poverty Island, at the mouth of the Connecticut River, by Huh Gll lariJ, clam digger ami vender. The watch is a large silver one, to which was attached a long, heavy chain, both ends of which are fastened in the ring. Five inches above the fastening of the one end the chain had been cut nearly in two. The outside of the watch appears to have been nicely engraved, but on the hide which lay uppermost tho design cannot be made out, as the action ot the water and sand has made the plate as smooth as Ice. On the inside of the outer case is engraved a name, which can not he made out and the date, 1C27. Whether this really 13 an olid: relic and imarks the sceno of an accident or tragedy probably never will be known. It is a fact, however, that In 1C32 Han3 Eensluys, of the famous West India Company, landed at the mouth of tha Connecticut and purchased a point ot land from tho natives and erectdd then? the arms of the States General of the Netherlands, his object being to obtain for the company the trade of tho river valley, a plan which Van Twiller, Gov ernor of tho New Netherlands, carried out on a greater scale tho following year. $500 REWARD 1 , Vfo will pay tlie above Toward for any caso ot Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Blck Headache, Indigestion.

Samuel McMlchan, 'plowman, of Oloseburn, Dumfriesshire, has Just brought to light a potf ul of silver pen nles that were burled probably 587 years ago or thereabouts. His critical eye noticed an unevenness In the ground, and Samuel McMlchan stepped back over the clods of that high lying field to ascertain the cause. He found that his plow had broken open an earthenware riot, and before him lay scattered hundreds of pieces of what in his homely lowland way he called -tin." With a capful of "tin" the McMlchan went off and consulted the farmer, and most of the "tin" turned out to be sil ver pennies of the reign of Edward I., who annexed Scotland, and Edward II , who lost It. There were over two thous and of them, all In good preservation, each measuring three-quarters of an Inch across. They weighed Ave pounds In bulk. Tho oldest of the coins are those of Alexander, of Scotland, who ruled from 1249 to 1285. There are also a few bearing the mint mark of Waterford, in Ireland. The latest are those of Ed ward II., whom the Scots cheerfully thra&hcd at Bannockburn in 1314. In 1313 Edward Bruce drove the English oppressor out of Nlthsdale, and It Is suggested that some Englishman, be ing in a hurry to reach the border, put his two thousand silver rennios In u potsherd and hid it in the ground.
