CENTURY OLD AND WORKINO.
Wooders What Will Happen to flaes
When TII Gets AgeJ.
The new superintendent of streets
at Calams, Me., has just reappointed
Patrick Meyers, who will be 105 years
old next June, to his old place as cus
todian of the city sidewalks, a post
which he has held for 37 consecutive
years. In 1864, when substitutes were
getting from $800 to $1.000 to go to the
war, and national and state bounties
made the total sum up to $1,600 to $1.
800, Myers enlisted, and having passed
a succeessful examination as to his
physical abilities, was rejected on ao
count of his age, being 68 years old at
that time. "It was discouraging to
me," said Myers, in speaking of the
matter last week. "I was a poor man,
and the bounty money would have
bought me a fine home, which I should
have enjoyed after serving out my
time in the army. I felt so bad that I
.didn't care to do any kind of work
for nearly a year. I knew I was as
strong and healthy as I ever was, and
age doesn't count tb men built the way
I was. After a time I secured a job
for the city to work on the streets.
When I had been digging sewer ditches O
and shoveling dirt for ten years they Is
put me in charge of the sidewalks, at
where I have been for a long time. Yi
My work is not hard, but It keeps me gi
busy. I earn my money and intend to di
stick to the work as long as they will bi
have me." The old man -lives in a e8
small house, which he has bought and PE
paid for out of his earnings at $1.50 a pi
day. His widowed daughter acts as hi
housekeeper for him. Report says he yi
has a tidy sum in the local savings il
bank. His body is bent from hard work gi
and he limps at times when the rheu
matism gets into his legs, but his gen
eral health is still good. He eats his d
three meals a day and sleeps ten hours
every night. He has smoked two 10
eat plugs of tobacco a week for the
past 94 years, never any more nor any
less. Years ago he took a glass of
whiskyr when he felt that he needed
it, but was never addicted to the habit. T

In that far-of lad, among the men
of brawn and might, whose swinging
axes have felled the towering forests
and converted their trackless depths
into flourishing farm lands, has arisen
a contest At for kings; a form of ath

thrill of delight to all who have an
honest admiration for good red blood
and the display of mighty muscle sys
tematically trained to do useful work.
' The new sport may be designated as

he Bride at Last Said "Obey."
In telling about "Some People I
Have Married," in the Ladies' Home
Journal, the Rev. D. M. Steele says:
"Being an Epicopalian I always use
the formal printed service of the Pray.
er-Book. In this the greatest stickler
is 'obey.' One day a couple came to
me, bringing as witnesses the parents
of both bride and groom. Everything
proceeded smoothly to the point 'love,
honor and obey,' when the bride re
tused to say the last. I repeated it
and waited. Again she refused, and I
shut up my book. Then there was a
scene. They talked it over, and'the
more seriously they argued and dis
cussed the more stubbornly she re
fused. The parents became angry, the
groom excited, and the bride hysteri
cal. To humor her he joined in the
request to have me leave it out. But
I liked the fellow and decided that a
little sternness from me in the present
might be a favor to him In the future.
So I told him I had no authority to
change it, and would not do so. I
tries to show the foolishness of her ob
jection, but it was no use. Finally, I
said to him: 'Well, this household
must have a head somewhere. i will
leave it out for her if you will say it.'
Then it was his time to refuse, which
he did. He gathered up his hat and
started for the door when, presto,
change! she sprang after him, led him
back by the hand, looked meekly up at
him and said it."

What ias wp bt the meat eztr
rdinasy pleat eva di~soWv has
pnow been touad by . b A. rr
of Phfladelphi, who, drsing trips to
south America, has fot some Tars
don. The amazing plant which Mr. m
8uverkrop has now found is an orchid
that takes a drink whenever it feels to
thirsty by letting down a tube into the of
water, the tube, when not in use, being 0
coiled up on top of the plant.
"One hot afternoon," says Mr. Su
verkrop, "I sat down under some brush bi
wood at the side of a lagoon on the i
Rio de la Plata. Near at hand was a
forest of dead shorn trees, which had
actually been choked to death by or
chids and climbing cacti. In front of
me, and stretching over the water of
the lagoon and about a foot above it,
was a branch of one of these dead
trees. Here and there clusters of com
mon 'planta del ayre' grew on it, and a
network of green cacti twined around
"Among- the orchids I noted one dif
ferent from the rest, the leaves, sharp
lancehead shaped, growing all round
the root and radiating from it. From
the centre or axis of the plant hung a
long slender stem about one-eighth of
an inch thick by one-fourth inch wide,
the lower end of which was in thbq
water to a depth of about four inches.
"I at once went over to examine my
discovery. Imagine my surprise when
I touched the plant to see this centre
stem gradually contract and convul
sively roll itself up in a spiral like a
roll of tape.
"But more surprising yet was the ob- f
ject and construction of this stem. I
found on close examination and dissec
tion that it was a long slender flat k
tube, the walls about 1-32 of an inch,
thick, cellular in construction, open at
the outer end and connected at the in
ner end to the roots by a series of hair
"By subsequent observation I found
that when the plant was in want of
water this tube would gradually un
wind till it dipped into the water. Then b
it would slowly coil round and wind
up, carrying with it the amount of
water th ththat part of the tube which b
had been immersed contained, until
when the final coil was taken the water
was dumped, as it were, direct into
the roots of the plant. The coil re
mained in this position until the plant
required more water. Should the
plant, however, be touched while the
tube is extended, the orchid acts like
the sensitive plant (mimosa) and the
coiling action is much more rapid.
"I found many of these plants, all
directly over the water or over where u
the water had been. In the latter case
it was almost pitiful to see how this
tube would work its way over the
ground in search of the water that was

The latest thingrd t the hospital Itse of
Is sa inirmary for sick wheat, where tic
crious ailments of he kernel are in
treated and in many cases a perfect ol
cure is effected. as
Thre Is an immense annual loss re- tog
salting from wet or diseased wheat. p
The loss from loose smut alone is at hlI
lest $18000,00 a year. The Depart In
ment of Agriculture has disseminated eu
a great deal of Information among the itn
farmers in regard to the diseases of an
wheat and the means for bringing ful
about a cure, but not much benefit has hi
nesalted from the information. In the so
large wheat sections of Manitoba and sic
the Northwest the same conditions as
prevail, and It was with the object of aft
reducing the loss to a minimum that Sb
the wheat hospital has been estab- mn
ished at Port Arthur, at the north- e n
west end of Lake Superior. Here an ne
elaborate system is in use for restor" tr:
Ing diseased wheat to a healthy state. mo
The bauilding is in the form of a large pe
elevator, very similar to the common as
grain elevators of the United wtates es
and Canada. It is supported out in thp th
lake upon crib work, so that vessels in
may come alongside and carry the to
cured wheat directly to the East or at
foreign ports. About 2,000,000 bushels to
of wheat are treated in the hospital in
every year. re
Where the disease of the wheat is k i
of a very vint type, it is impossl- n ,h
ble to improvt in health. Diseases ac
known as "sth ing smut" or "bunt" be
" WHAT HOSPITrrAL," PORT ARTHUDB,
are beyond all help. In the advanced
stages of those diseases the whole ker- hi
oel is infected with the germ and be- bl
comes a mass of spores, which have t
consumed all the nutritive parts of the al
kernel, leaving only a thin shell on the sa
outside. When this breaks there is a a
countless number of germs released, gt
which have a fetid ou!or and are rul- di
os to flour with which they come in bg
contact. Kernels that are intact in- ,
side the brown skin can be successful- ot
ly treated, even though they are so ,
black with smut as to be Irrecogniza- c,
ble as wheat. In addition to this un- a
sanitary or dirty wheat, there are ker- Is
nels that get the dropsy; that is, they ,
become saturated with water, and are p
unfit for anything except stock fodder. b
Sometimes an entire crop will be af- ei
fected in this way, and it usually b
proves to be a total loss.
The drying plant of the hospital ia d
capable of treating 6500 bushels per ii
hour. The plant includes a series of c
frames of perforated metal, through c
which hot air is forced until the wet ti
wheat is completely dried. The wheat p
is divided into three classes, depending i
opon the amount of water It contains, r
and this condition corresponds to the 'i
stage of the disease. "Tough" wheat
contalns about ive per cent. of water,
"damp" wheat about eight per cent, a

four per cent. of water. After wheat a

A meet enrlos' case, showlng hod
the separate systems of the govera
meat may take on contfusing shape, has
just come to light In Indiana. A man
who has for nineteen years been Con
ined in jail at the expense of the aa
tion, has daring al these years been
in receipt, or intended receipt, of a
considerable sum of money from the
same nation. It is because the man
fought in the great war that the com
plication was made possible. At least,
his services in battle were responsible
in part for the situaton. It once oc
curred to the same man that after har
ing fought the good fight for fraedom
and unification it might be the grace
tul thing for the country to recognise
his worth by a monetary consideration,
so he put in an application for a pen
sion. It was allowed, and the man's
name was written on the book of fame,
after which he was entitled to dollars. 1
Shortly following this period another
man passed on to the great beyond,
under circumstances which the coro
ner's jury considered called for the
trying of somebody on a capital punish
ment charge. It so happened that the
pensioner was the person fixed upon
as the active agent assisting th"
earthly exit of the deceased. Although
the pensioner stoutly maintained his
innocence, the proof was so strong as
to lead the jury to a verdict of guilty
and the committing judge to a sen
tence of life imprisonment. This was
in the year 1880, and for nineteen
years the prisoner worked out his des
tiny behind the bars. At the conclu
slon of this time the man who had
committed the murder took to his last
bed, and it occurred to him to make a
confession. So the pensioner is free
now. But he still has trouble:. There
are some thousands of dollsrs in pen
sion money which the wardens have
failed to turn over to him, and he is
obliged to sue for their recovery. Be
sides, there are the wasted nineteen
years, because of the implicit judical
faith-in the infalibility of circumstan
tial evidence.-San Francisco CalL

F. L. O'Brien, of Dublin, in speaking
of the antiquity of some of the Irish
families, told the following story:
'"There lives in- the North of Ireland,"
said Mr. O'Brien, "a family named
O'Ncil. Their greatest claim to promi
nence lies in the fact that they are the
oldest family in the United Kingdom.
When Plantagenet, Tudor or Guelph
was not, the O'Neil was. They ruled
as kings before ever William looked
with covetous eye across the English
Channel toward the white cliffs of Al
bion. This long line of descent has
bred in the family a reverence for
their ancestry that approaches idol
atry. The mainspring of their life and
action, the pride of their being, is that
a long line of dead and long since for
gotten O'Nolls carry them back in the
direct line to the Dark Ages. As may
be imagined, their family tree is colos
sal in its proportions. It has a length
of something like eighteen or nineteen
feet, and when it is unrolled at the
castle a holy hush falls over all. To
a visitor there some years ago was,
in due course of time and as a special
mark of favor, shown this marvelous
pedigree. Stretched on the enormous
billiard table, it lapped three feet at
either end. The visitor's eye ran
back over that lengthy line of O'Neils,
long since turned to dust, and he won
dered why they took so insane a pride
in their descent.. Just then he became
conscious that that thought had oc
curred to other aliens, who had before
times seen the O'Neil family tree. A
penciled note in the margin, about half
way down the tree, caught his eye. It
read: 'Just here came Adam.' "-New

versity of Michigan, with 813 sta a-
dents; the University of Ch0leeg

3,413; the Uiversity .of Caliteria.
3216; Cornell university, ,004; the
University of Pennsylvania, 2,673, and
Yale, 2.644. Columbia is one of the
lowest numerically in the size of its
men's undergraduate college, which,
however, has increased more than 50
per cent in a single generation. In the
scientific schools she is surpassed in
numbers only by Cornell and Yale; in
her graduate departments she stands
first in this respect, with 422, against
398 at harvard. The statistics further
snow the peculiar prominence of Chi
cago, with her theological seminary of
180' stuaents; of Pennsylvania, with a
school of 417 dentists, and another of
60 veterinaries; of Minnesota, with a
college of agriculture, numbering 590
in attendance; of California with her
school of art, attracting 208 students;
of Cornell, whose division of forestry
is established with a registration of p
22, and of Yale, the only university
having a separate school of music.
Another Old Goose. i
A goose, on the farm of Mr. Watkins
Oilfach Maen, South Wales, reached
the extraordinary age of forty-one
years last spring. Up to ten years ago
this goose laid regularly, and has
hatched and brought up hundreds of
goslings. For some time now she has
not mixed with or taken any notice of
the other geese and the solitary jour
ney of the poor old thing toward the
end of its long and useful life is pa
thetic to behold, although she is treat
ed with every kindness by her kind
The straw platting industry of Eng
land gives employment to about 50,
000 women and 4.000 to 5.000 men.

though I am past eighty years of
age, yet I have not a gray hair it
Geo. Yellott, Towson, Md.
We mean all that rich,
dark color your hair used
to have. If it's gray now,
no matter; for Ayer's
Hair Vigor always re
stores color to gray hair.
Sometimes it makes the
hair grow very heavy and
long; and it stops falling
of the hair, too.
