Some kings, though long aware of their own uselessness, were not made uneasy until they perceived that the world in general was getting to be aware of it as well. The more timorous among them were for giving up at once. "Let's abdicate and go to work!" suggested these. But the .bolder spirits were for nothing like that. "No, let's bring on a thumping big war!" they recom mended. "Somebody would say such a war was wicked," ventured the timorous kings. "Nobody would dare," the bold kings replied. "If anybody were to say such a thing he would be in stantly pilloried by the patriots. Why should kings despair when there are as many patriots as ever?" "But those extremists, who number millions, and who vow they will not fight against their brethren of other lands!" the timorous kings objected. Here the bold kings burst out laughing. "Have you lived with that class so long not to find out that they are as big fools as anybody when it comes to the pinch?" they cried, with tears in their eyes. New York Evening Post. . ager.

The Italian government is often greatly annoyed by the smuggling of lary;e amounts of contraband goods across the Swiss border into Italy, re sulting In a great loss of revenue. Steps are now being taken which it is hoped will stop this lawlessness. Plans have been made to fence . the whole of the border with heavy metal netting and customs authorities look upon the scheme with great favor. This form of barrier has been tried along several parts of the frontier, but it has been found that the fence alone is not sufficient The new fence of wire netting is nine feet high and along the top are to be fastened at short intervals a number of bells which will summon the customs in spectors the moment a person tries to cross the border. Of course this necessitates the employment of a large force of inspectors, who will be provided with police dogs to ran dowr the offenders. Pathfinder. Short-Sighted Bourbons. One hundred years ago France was undergoing many changes, following the overthrow of Napoleon and the res toration of the Bourbons. Many of these changes were not to the liking of the pple, and the signs of popular dis content were increasing daily. Partic ular offense was given by the repudia tion of Napoleon's famous concordat with the church, also by the efforts of the government to prohibit all buy ing and selling on religious holidays and Sundays. Everywhere in France there were premonitions of that situa tion which Napoleon foresaw when he said: "The Bourbons may put France at peace with Europe, but bow will they put her at peace with them selves r Beef 17 Cents a Pound. , It pays to take care of your cattle and to see that they grow rapidly and keep healthy.

When the truthful press agent of the average show exalts it as "bigger and bottor than ever," the discriminating dramatic editor usually does the blue pencil act. . But with the Al 0. Field show it is safe to let it stand, for the show makes good on that basis. f That is the secret of Mr. Field's success year after year. He has the one big show on the road which has never raised prices, and the only one, and yet the quality bas never been allowed to de teriorate. On the contrary, the show is better to-day than it was 25 years ago. And in spite of the low price of cotton, plus a rainy night, Mr. Field bad the same big business at the Kempner last , night that he always has. The large audience was friendly from the start. The beautiful stage picture presented as the curtain rose started the applause, and laughter and applause were the order of the night thence forth. There is everything in the show that spells success, scenery that vies with that of the high class, musical - comedies, fine voices, funny comedians, good songs and an excellent olio,, Bert 8wor is chief fun-maker, but there are others, notably Joe Coffman, who made quite a bit in the first part and again in the Panama exposition afterpiece. A Others who contributed to the hilarity were Harry Shunk, Boni Mack, West Avey, Denny O'Neil," Charles Markert and others. Then there i a splendid singing contingent. Jack Richards is entitled to first mention. lis has a tenor voice of very unusually " sweet tone qualities and made the singing hit of the first part. Herbert W'illisori's yodehng found favor, too, as did the songs of John Worland, Ed Hughes and others, while the chorus was most excellent.
