The Daughter of David Kerr By HARRY KING TOOTLE THE boss of a provincial town keeps his daughter away at school in ignorance of his doubtful civic status. She comes home unexpectedly when a packing company wants a dishonest franchise,, and when an inde pendent newspaper editor threatens the boss’B »upremacy. How the boss is beaten, and the independent editor wins the daughter form as graphic a story of modern politics and society as has been written. Wc have secured this fascinating story for our next serial. If you do not read it you will miss One of the Most Forceful Pieces of Fiction Written in Many a Day Watch for the Issue With the First Instalment Pickled Peppers. “Now, dearie.” said the nnrae. -I want you to learn thla nice little poem about ‘Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper*.’ ’’ ••Shan’tT* anewered the Boston child much tn the manner of other children. **Oh. naughty, naughty* Why.

In the second place, consider the Impossibility of picking peppers which have already been pickled The whole thing Is beneath the attention of any Intelligent person.”—Boston Traveler. The Word “Score.” “Bcore” for twenty came Into the language nearly at the same time, but waa not exclusively French. It comes frmn the Anglo-Saxon scor. the root of ■hear, shire, scar, and means to cut. Our ancestors, to avoid the dltlicuitj of large numbers, used to keep ac counts by cutting notches In a stick, called a tally, and after twenty such notches they cut off the tally, which tboa became a "score.” These were used In England for keeping the ex chequer accounts, even to the begin nlng of the nineteenth century. A cricket score was once spoken of as so many notches, and the rind of pork Is acored The word Is first used In a poem called “The Bestiary" and to ••Cursor 61 uudl."—London Answers.
