paper-making Industry, died October
2 at his residence. Sugar Hill, in this
town. He passed from life quietly
and unconsciously in an attack of
sleeping sickness, which followed an
illness of seven weeks, due, accord
ing to his physicians, to eneepholitis,
or inflammation of the brain.
Born in Dalton, Mass., April 23,
1853, the son of Zenas M. Crane, a
paper manufacturer, Senator ' Crane
was educated In the public schools
and at Williston seminary. He never
attended college, hut after leaving
the seminary, entered the paper mills
founded by his grandfather at Dalton
and in them he maintained an Inter
est throughout his life.
An outstanding characteristic of
Senator Crane was the fact that he
attained eminence in public life with
out being an orator. Although he
served eight years in the senate, it
was said of him that he never made
what really could he called a "speech"

DEMAND FOR HIPPO TEETH
Buyers Flock to Antwerp Four Time*,

They Are Sold.
T,he chief Ivory market of the world
Is In Antwerp, where buyers from
everywhere assemble four times a year
to attend an auction of this material.
Most of It consists of the tnsks of
African elephants, but considerable
quantities of hippopotamus teeth also
figure In the sales. The latter, at ai»
auction a few weeks ago, brought
prices all the way from thirty-flv*

A century ago hippopotamus Ivory
was much more valuable than It Is to

"Good Angel" Unappreciated.
Many times our best angels are not
appreciated. The very fact that w*
are so accustomed to their ministry
makes them commonplace. Bill wa*
hamly man at a certain college. Hw
didn't get rich on what he did but h*
knew more ubout things than any on*
there. He just naturally took the re
sponsibility for everything. But no
one appreciated him. In fact he be
came something of a joke and every
body took occasion to shove off re
sponsibility on him knowing that h*
could he counted on putting anything
through that he undertook. So they
worked the willing horse until he wa*
picked up by a more appreciative con
cern and the college lost a good angel.
Incidentally I might add, two men amt
a typist are doing the same work.—
