From far comes the boat’s deep whistle, The hollow roar of a train, Leaving an odd nostalgia That is neither joy nor pain. Sometimes a few stray zeyphers Come softly piping round, Seeking new reeds and wind-harps With weirdly plaintive sound. The world is oh, so quiet, As if wistfully waiting in vain; Does it hark for the pattering foot steps Of the wild, sweet elves of the rain —Una Hands. o ' COLORED MEN STOLE BRIDGE Eight colored men, residents of Abingdon, were found guilty in Har ford County Court, for larceny of a lot of bridge iron which formerly constituted the bridge at Calvary. This bridge several years ago had been washed away, but the commis sioners had piled it up near Pouska’s Mill, and, according to the testimony, planned to use it for a bridge over a smaller stream. The iron was stolen and sold for junk- Some clever sleuthing on the part of the sheriff and his deputies resulted in the arrest of eight alleged participants, namely Percy Beasley, William Braxton, the latter’s aunt. Evelyn B. Walker, Charles Peaker, Ellsworth Lee, Clarence Osborn. Solomon Peaker and Howard Norton. Two others, John Henry Peaker and James Osborn, were indicted along with the others, but have not yet been apprehended, and it is thought they have fled the State. The jury brought in a general ver dict of guilty against eight de fendants, with a recommendation of mercy. The court sentenced Evelyn B. Walker, Percy Beasley and Wm. Braxton to two years in the House of Correction, and Chas. Peaker to one year. The court also sentenced Ellsworth Lee, Clarence Osborn, Sol omon Peaker and Howard Norton to one year in the House of Correction, but suspended sentence on payment of their proportion of the costs of prosecution. o If a jailbird doesn’t fly it isn’t his fault. universe, including man.

Footprints Can Betray Criminals to Experts Criminals have learned to guard against the finger-print experts; now they must be careful that their foot prints do not betray them. The Im pression of a foot can tell the detec tive much. He can Identify a foot and Its cover ing, and can recognize the man by any peculiarity In gait. He can tell whether the criminal was standing up right, walking, running or walking backward. Many extraordinary things have been discovered during Investigations Into this new method of tracking down criminals. It Is, for Instance, more usual to take longer strides with the left leg than the right, though It Is generally believed that the muscles of the right leg are stronger, and that therefore the bigger stride Is taken with the right leg. Fugitives nearly always turn to the right when trying to run away, and In open spaces they run In circles. But this rule of turning to the right holds good even when they are mak ing their escape along crowded streets and dnren’t run! If a man walking normally looks back he always pivots on the foot opposite to the side he turns his head. If a man of average height walks with short steps, he Is a countryman used to meeting obstructions In his path. It is only the townsman used to smooth roads who strides out. Unpatented Method of Avoiding Paying Debts Lewis Carroll, In the Golden Book Magazine, solves the problem of not paying your bills. “How much Is it this year, my man?" asked the professor. "Well, It’s been a-doubllng so many years, you see,” the tailor replied, "and I think I’d like the money now. It’s two thousand pounds, It Is.” “Oh, that's nothing,” the professor carelessly remarked. , . , “But wouldn’t you like to wait just another year and make It four thousand? Just think how rich you’d be I Why you might be a king, If you liked I” “I don’t know as I’d care about be ing a king,” the man said thoughtful ly. "But It dew sound a powerful sight o’ money! Well, I think I’ll wait.” “Of course you will 1” said the pro fessor. “There’s good sense In you, I see. Good day to you, my man!” “Will you ever have to pay him the four thousand pounds?” Sylvie asked, as the door closed on the departing creditor. "Never, my child!” The professor replied emphatically. "He’ll go on doubling It till he dies. You see, It’s always worth while waiting another year to get twice as much money I” Diver Hard to Shoot The diver, commonly called the loon, Is of the most difficult birds to shoot, i It Is an uncommonly fine diver, as Its name Indicates, and Is an excellent flyer as well. There Is the one bit of sport to be had in hunting a loon on a lake and that is the uncertainty of just what the bird will do. It may rise off the water and seek less dan gerous waters, or It may dive beneath the surface and come up about several hundred yards away. The direction, too, Is an uncertainty, for a bird gives no Indication as he goes under the water which way he will swim. The loon Is a solitary bird, usually never more than one pair Inhabiting a small body of water. The female usually lays but two or three eggs during the breeding season, and for that reason the divers are not very numerous. Beer in History The scanty records of ancient Baby lon, going back to 5000-6000 B. C., show that beer made from barley, and from barley and spelt, was extensive ly drunk there, even by laborers and by women In the harem. It was used In medicine In Babylon and Egypt, and had spices and bltterlng sub i stances added to It In Abyssinia and Nubia, Herodotus and Strabo both wrote that the people lived on millet and barley, “whereof they also made a beverage.” Tactltus said that beer was the usual drink of the Germans 1 and Pliny mentions the use of it In i Gaul and Spain. He also writes, “They employ the foam which thickens upon the surface as a leaven” —probably the first reference to beer yeast for bak ing purposes. I . __ Juvenile Etiquette Bill, age eight, and his sister, Ellza ; beth, age five, had gone up to bed after bidding mother’s guests “good night” Almost Immediately sounds of dissension penetrated to the room below and mother sallied forth to calm the storm and learn its cause. “Well, Bill called me a ‘greenie’ for ! kissing Miss Barnes good night,” the i small sister explained excitedly, “and he said girls never kissed girls, they , Just kissed boys. And I said ‘Greenie yourself. Bill,’ she ended triumphant ly, ‘girls don’t kiss boys—they Just let til? boys kiss them.’ ” I "Book for Lias” for Widow In the will of a man who died re ’ cently In Sydney, New South Wales, he left his widow “5 shillings to buy a book In which to write down all the lies she has told me." The will has , been broken by the executors, who found the allegations false. The man left his estate to three of his four ‘ children, but the executors have pro vided, subject to the approval of the court, that the widow will receive one [ third and each child an equal share | of the remainder.

THINGS TO REMEMBER Ways to which babies may be kept well and comfortable during the hot weather are pointed out In the ao* coinpauylng bulletin from the Bureau of Child Hygiene of the Maryland • State Department of Health: “With the coming of hot weather, mothers with little children beglu to think of the dread summer com plaint which used to take a dreadful toll of Infant lives, among bottle-fed babies each year. It is now well known that a large part of this sick ness Is caused by germs getting Into the baby's food. On that account every mother must be extremely careful about cleanliness In handling the food. Bottles and nipples should be boiled before using. All milk given to babies under a year and half uld should be boiled for three min utes If an open pan is used or for twenty minutes In a double boiler. "But even the most careful prepa rations are useless if flies are not kept away from the milk and from the baby also. Flies are disease carriers. Kee pthe baby In a screen ed crib if possible. If, in spite of all this care, the baby develops diarrhea or loose bowels, a doctor should be called immediately. The mother who nurses her baby is spared much of this worry. “There are other things to remem ber about the care of the baby during the hot weather. Every effort should be made to keep the baby comfort able. Dress the baby according to the weather—if it is very hot put on only a diaper. Many mothers fear that exposure is dangerous, but get ! ting the baby overheated from too many clothes, Is even worse. Spong ing the baby with tepid water on hot days makes him more comfortable. “There are two rashes which aff -1 Uct bubles in the summer: One from heat and the other from the bites of insects. The heat rash is caused by 1 too much perspiration, particularly; in the folds of the skin. Insect bites can be prevented if the child is kept in a screened room or porch, or in a screened crib. “When it is very warm adults like to drink more water. So do babies. Give them cooled boiled water several times a day. In very hot weather; babies and young children, like 1 grown-ups, have less appetite for food. Don’t force the baby, against bis will, to take more food than he wants. “There is no need for stopping cod ■ liver oil, tomato, or orange Juice, 1 during the summer. At one time it was thought that the oil caused diar -1 rhea but we know now that germs In the milk are generally responsi ble. “Sun baths should be given to ! every baby but they must be done 1 judiciously. Start with 10 or IS minutes a day and increase the time gradually as the skin becomes tan ned. Be very careful to protect the baby's eyes from the sun. “The precautions outlined above are not hard to carry out- Follow -1 ing them will make the baby more comfortable and may save his life.” 1 . 0 MAN WHO CAUSED NOTED EDI TORIAL DIES AT 74 1 New York, June 11 —The man 1 who was the cause of that famous 1 editorial published in the old New 1 York Sun in t 1897 entitled “Is There ’ a Santa Claus?” is dead. He was Dr. Philip F. O’Hanlon, 1 well known in New York as a diag ' nostician and nerve specialist, who ' died last night at his home of a heart ailment. He was 74. When Dr. O’Hanlon’s daughter, Virginia, now Mrs. L. V. Douglas, asked her father the Inevitable ques tion, “Is there a Santa Claus?" he evaded the issue by suggesting that she write a letter to the Sun. The result was the editorial classic, writ ten by Francis P. Church, and re published countless times in many places since then. o ORPHANS’ COURT Bond of Arthur Beaven, executor of John S.
