The story of "Lick's Folly, or the Mahogany Mill," has to do with tbs (•manes of tho life of James Uck, tbs donor of tbo Lk-k observatory. la early life young Uck fell In love with tbs daughter of a well to do mlllsr tor whom he worked. When he mads known hla love, which was re ciprocated by the girl, the miller was angry and Is said to have replied: "Out you beggar! liars you think •f my daughter, who will inherit my itches? Ilave you a mill like this? Have you a single penny in your pumsr* To this Uck replied that he had nothing aa yet. but one day he would have a mill beside which this one would bo s pigsty In 1864 the quiet, parsimonious Jamas Uck surprised everybody by building a magnificent flour mill near ■an Jose. The mill was finished with in In solkl mahogany highly polished and was furnished with the best machinery possible. He made the grounds about the mill very attractive and began early to set out trees both for fruit and ornament Uck caused ids elegant mill to be photographed without and within and sent the pk-turcs to the miller who hnd scorned him tn his youth. Nineteen years after Mr. Uck built Mb mill, Jan. 18. 1873, hs surprised the people of Ben Jose again by giving It te the Paine Memorial society of Bos ton. half the proceeds of sale to be need toe s memorial ball and half to nantoto n lecture course Bottled the Question.

What school could not do for Uttls Nathan Lebn, the son of a Kuasian refugee, now living In Wichita, Kan., the greet game of baseball has accom plished, says a Wichita special dis patch to the Cincinnati Commercial Tribune. When Nathan went to Wichi ta he found that his tongue, accus tomed to the guttural Russian, could not easily learn the American lan guage, and a year In the public schools helped little, although the boy worked bard. Nathan could understand the talk of his American playmates, but could not talk back to them, and for almoet a year his principal con versa tlon was by signs. The spring came, and with It every schoollmy pulled out his baseball kit and hied himself to the nearest vacant lot. Nathan went, too, and earned the nickname of Nuekle from hla pro nunciation of his first name. For few days Nathan watched the game With longing, thoughtful eyee, but played no ball. Then one day when boya were scarce Nuekle was sent to the outfield. At flrat he could not catch anything, but he was active after missed balls and picked up the game with astonishing rapidity. The bat and the system of batting was t mystery to the little •lien for alsjut two days, and then he learned that he could get to first by waiting. Then Nathan grinned a wily grin and began to have some fun. At bat be would swing at nothing unless It was Juat right, and in a couple of days ha was getting to first every time at bat. At every walk he would shout with glee, hold up his four fingers and tease the pitcher In sign language. But when he had found more need for ex presston than he had In the schoolroom ne began to talk, and inside of two weeks he could argue balls and strikes and close decisions at bases with the best of his American playmates, no knows the game, too, and talks good baseball and will In time make a fast player. When he found that he had to talk English to play games In the United States Nathan began to see some use for learning the language, and In the last month his speaking powers hnve developed wonderfully, aud with this he has become popular and Is always welcomed In the games of the boys the south part of Wichita, where he lives. What the painful striving of his teachers failed to accomplish In nine months the great American sport Is do ing In as many weeks.

Cockrell of Missouri, now a member of the in terstato commerce commission, has ra galued his health sufficiently to par take of bis usual noonday lunch, two apples aud a sack of peanuts, which during his thirty years ofllctal residence In Washington, most of the time as United States senator, were his only diet for the noonday meal, writes a Washington eorra«qxmdent of the Kan sos City Journal. Senator Cockrell says he believes there is more nutriment In n sack of peanuts than tn a pound of beefsteak aud that they are easier to get Last winter when be was stricken with illness his physician ordered him to drop apples and peanuts tor awhile. It was s hard task. Recently when he was advised that he could resume hla favorite bill of fare he was happier than a boy with hla first pair of red top boots. Relief Coming.

On June 1 ground was broken for tba Alaska-Yukon exposition, which is to be held in Scuttle in 1909. opening on June 1 of tbut year and closing on Oct. 15, says Leslie's Weekly. Its ob ject is to celebrate the fortieth anni versary of the purchase of Alaska. That anniversary comes in 1907 Instead of in 1909. but nearness to the Lewis and Clark exposition in Portland. Ore., 1905 and the lack of time for ade quate preparation compelled the selec tion of 1909 as the date for the observ ance. The New York chamber of com merce, the oldest and by far the most Important body of that sort in the United States, recently adopted resolu tions commending the Alaska-Yukon exposition and urging the legislature at Albany to make an appropriation for the participation of the state of New York therein. Many of the states —Pennsylvania, Missouri, Utah, Cali fornia. Washington and others—had al ready made arrangements to be repre sented at the exposition, and others arc expected to do so In the sessions of their legislatures next winter. Tbo exposition is to cost $10,000,000, is to cover 250 acres of ground and Is to have twelve exhibit palaces. Pries* at Jamestown Exposition One small tomato. 80 cents; one mod crate luncheon for two, $10; a shave and face massage, $1.25; one truck hauled to exposition grounds, $7 These, says the Springfield Republican are the last prices at the Jamestown exposition. In Indiana. Two thousand plunks a year to wed— Two thousand more when he Is dead— Two dollars for a license fee— All this sounds sorter right to me. A man has got to toe the mark— No ohooslng husbands tn the dark— Good money all the girls must see, And that looks sorter right to me. Ahem! No cats for pets out here— No Jumping on man's habits, dear— No bottles without labels clad; Oh, well, that does not sound half bai No home must really need a maid— Of smoke one must not be afraid; WiveB chosen only In this manner— I think I'll go to Indiana! —L.
