ROUND THE REGION. Robert Short/., a prominent young man of VVilkesbarro, was found dead in bed at Hotel Hart a few minutes be fore midnight, death having been caused by asphyxiation. When found the gas was turned on and the impression was that he committed suicide.

He was 4'.l years old asid was a son of the well known attorney, Edwin Short/. Ice cream soda at Kelper's.

"The use of the telephone'bos become so much a part of iny life that In talking with my friends and acquaintances every few days I apparently kept up the ac quaintance as of old, when I used to see thera more regularly. A few days ago I had occasion to visit an old time friend of mine with whom I had tulked probably once' a week or of toner for the past three or four years, but whom 1 bad not seen during that period. "When I met hlui, I was startled. Ills black beard bad turned gray, almost white, and he bad changed In other respects, AS was natural, during the three or four years of that period, yet through the use of the telephone I had in my mind's eye seen him as of old every time I had talked with him, and you may imagine how surprised, even shocked, 1 was to see this change in him. "Did you ever have a simillnr experi ence? 1 imagine the increasing use of the telephone causes many of them. You hear the usual voice on the tele phone and mentally picture the friend us ho looked when you saw him last, which may have been a year or several years in the past."—Electrical Review.

I PONSONBY'S POLLY | It certainly was an odd thing to do, and the Pocsonhys were not a little sur prised when Helen Waters gave them a bright green parrot for a wedding | present. They did not consider It either ornamental or useful and not in the least essential to their newly married happiness. I "It seems to be a sort of Jol;o," said Alice Ponsonby to lior husband. "I ■ can't think what she meant by it." And so "pretty roily" in n finely pol [, lshed brass cage found a place in the ! parlor of the Ponsonbys' dwelling place where lie could look down in the street | and scold and fret parrot fashion at t whatever went on to incur his displcas j ure. The care of the pet was a now thing to Alied, and I'oily was allowed to go hungry more than once in her j early days in the new abode. But j Alice soon became accustomed to the new care, and almost before she knew | it she had doveloped a decided fondness I for the bird. I In her spare moments of play with it i 1 she tried to teach It to say a few things \ In addition to the "Polly wants a crack- I or" and the other stuff that nil parrots seem to know as soon as they have "first cracked their shells. And In the I course of time the thing began to like j Alice also and to sidle along its perch j and appear pleased whenever she came into the room, i But somehow It didn't seem to like I Torn Ponsonby and always sputtered ! and scolded whenever lie came near, j "Queer brute, ain't It*" Tom would i say to his wife. Then he would tease j it by poking his fingers into the cage j and pretending to abuse his wife, which the parrot very soon learned to resent. The bird was Jealous, In fact, and it soon came about that whenever Tom Ponsonby gave bis wife u fare : well kiss In the morning or took her in | to his arms when she welcomed him I home In the evening "pretty Polly" would put in an oar, so to speak, and sputter out its angry displeasure. "Break away, break away!" It learn- I ed to say on such occasions and seldom failed. Tom thought It was clever of the "beast," and It not infrequently happened that he embraced his wife more for the sake of hearing the parrot 1 sputter than to demonstrate his real af ! faction. In this way the parrot became an Im portant member of the household, ami It was really a pleasure for Alice Pon sonby to report that her pet was "get ting along just fine" when she met Ifel ; en Waters at tent line one Sunday even ; ing at the senior Ponsonbys. i "Really, I wish you could see It now ' and hear It talk," said Alice. "Won't you come over to dinner next Sunday? And we'll bring you homo in the after noon." Helen Waters did come the next Sun day, but not to dinner, according to the original plan. "I'll drop In during the afternoon," she wrote In a note, changing the time, "and. if you don't mind, I'll bring my friend, Mr. Stevens, who has asked to call that day. Ho is a pleasant fellow, and I should like you to know him." Miss Waters and her escort sauntered Into the Ponsonbys' fiat about 5 o'clock that Sunday afternoon, and their first thought, after a few words about the parrot and an exchange of compliments between the young ladles concerning ! their clothes, seemed to bo to get away again. "But you mustn't be going way over to the North Side at this time of day until you have bad supper," said Alice. "I'm sure you must be hungry, and you've been here such a short time. : Tom and I can have the supper things i ready in a jlfi'y if you'll only stay." j "It would be a pleasure for me to stay," replied Helen, "if Mr. Stevens doesn't mind." ' Mr. Stevens didn't mind, of course, j and the Ponsonbys bustled back to the I kitchen to fix up a Welsh rabuit and ! the accompanying lndlgestlblcs, leav ! ing their guest, to talk to the parrot and look over the books in the front room. They bad been gone but a moment when they were startled by the most excited sputterlngs and squawkings that came back through the open door ways. "Break away! Break away! Leggo there! Break away!" The parrot was In a fury of excite ment and was strutting around his cage at a groat rate when Alice dashed in from the kitchen. She found Helen Waters standing far back in a corner i blushing to the roots of her hair while | Mr. Stevens, very much flushed and i flustered, stood close by awkwardly j trying to untangle his cuff button from j the lace at the back of the young lady's neck. "Why, what's the matter with the i parrot?" demanded Alice, her eyes starting with wonder. "What's all the racket about?" I "I—l don't know, Alice, I'm sure," | I stammered Helen, becoming more con fused every moment. "He's frightened me nearly to death with bis screech j ing. I don't know what started him, I'm sure, only—only when you and : Tom went out of the room, why, Joe j I mean Mr. Stevens—got foolish and put his arm around me and kissed me. ! But, Alice, Alice, It's all right., Alice, ilear, for we're engaged and have been for a month, only we didn't want any body to know just yet because we can't be married for a yenr, and, Alice, dear, you must promise me not to say any thing about It till I telj you."—Chicago Record-11 era Id.

This triumph of his skill and ingenuity he caused to he erected In the Imme diate vicinity of the royal palace. In the course of time the Onppadoclan bakers became celebrated and were In ; great demand throughout all parts of j the world as then known. These mills were usually placed up on boats 011 the river, being so elevated and contrived as to be easily driven by the water, and the millers were thus enabled to move from place to place, distributing the meal to their custom ers.
