Will Not Be NeededLabor-Saving Devices in Homes. The thread-bare servant problem will have become a thing of the past by 2000 A. D. Domestics seem to be necessary nowadays to supplement the deficiencies of some housewives, and owing to the incompleteness in the construction of many houses. The tendency of modern apartment houses Is to minimize work so that no serv ants will be needed. The homes of the future will prob ably be warmed in the walls from some power-generating station. Air will enter through proper tubes in the walls which will warm the house and will capture the dust, and it will be spun out again by simple devices. Scientific builders are now planning to do away with the walls meeting the floors at right angles, as by rounding off the angles between wall and floor, sweeping and cleaning will be lightened. If a window is cleaned hurriedly and left wet, it dries in spots, and dirt Is left in solution. By the touch ing of a button and turning on of water that contains a solvent, water would be forced down the window panes from pin holes in a pipe above, into a groove below, and this would be followed by pure rain water, and window cleaning would be done "sans domestlques." And within a few years, perhaps, the French scientists will have fur ther perfected the taking of nourish ment and enjoying whole meals from a few drops, or a few pellets, from two to tnrw vials, thus doing away with chefs, and the elaborate part of 0\E MORE CHANCE. Final Hearing of Cass Lake Tbwnsite to be Heard Soon. Special Ae:ent Nessler of the Indian service, will soon be sent to Minnesota to conduct a final hearing in the famous Cass Lake townsite case. This case has been before the department for several years, and was decided last December in favor of Mrs Nellie Lydick and her two minor children,.who tookallotments as members of the \Vhite Oa Point tribe. The land as selected was on the site now occupied by a con siderable porti on of the popula tion of Cass Lake. Senator Nelson petitioned dur- ing the last session of congress for a reopening, which was grant edand-further evidence will be take n. The settlers who have been opposed to Mrs. Lydick's Babbit to look after their inter ests. I is alleged that while Mr s. Lydick was once a member of the White Oa Point tribe, she severed her tribal relations with that band of Indians some time ago, and consequently, forfeited her right to take an allottment on the lands set aside for that tribe. Secretary Hitchcock says that th is is the last time he will take up the case. thinks that the claims have employed Charles H. opposition to the Lydick's, if it do es not submit any new testi- mony at this hearing, will have to give up. But few of the squat ters really object, and many of them already have provision al contracts with the Lydicks to purchase the lots upon which their stores, shops and houses stand. Houses for rent.

If it wasn't, if there waa yet time, we might expect that in their strenuous efforts to outdo one another the society dames would re sort to extreme measures. For in stance: One of them might construct a gar den on towers and call it the New Hanging Gardens of the Hesperides, and then give a garden party with cap tive balloons for elevators. Some other dame could dig a canal through her domain, with real dykes and wooden shoes and canal boats, and windmills operated by perfumed hot air, and give a reception a la Hol lacdaise. Another idea would be to lay out a section of the Garden of Eden, with all the animals from some big menagerie running wild behind a heavy wire partition, and then call it "An Even ing at Papa Adam's." with all the guests in Watteau costumes. A real cute scheme would be to have a duplicate of the ark and give a "Father Noah at Home," with the guests assuming the disguises of the animals. If the ark could be made to roll a little so the guests would feel qualmish, it would add greatly to the amusement. Then at a certain hour there could be a Noachian german on deck with railroad stocks and gov ernment bonds for favors. REFLECTION ON THE JUDG Ultra Piou6 Lawyer Drew Upon Him self Wrath of Justice Gray. Justice Gray of the United States supreme court, who has just retired,, had a long experience on the bench before going to Washington. Many years ago. when he was a member of the supreme court of Massachusetts, he had an amusing experience with a certain Boston lawyer, an exceedingly pious man with a taste for evangeliza tion, who had his letterheads printed with a verse from scripture in large type following th name and address. On one occasion, having to make an ex-parte preliminary argument be fore Justice Gray in chambers, in which it would be necessary to dis close certain parts of his client's case which he desired not to make gener ally known until the trial, he wrote the judge a note asking that he be allowed an opportunity to speak to him in private. He was somewhat chagrined when MB note came back to him with a ecrawl across the bot tom: "Request denied, with a sug gestion from the court that counsel base future petitions on a more ap propriate citation." For a moment he could not make out the meaning of this, as he was not aware that he had qjfioted any law, but glancing up the page he discover ed that he had written his page on a letterhead bearing this text: "Ye are bought with a nrice." When a man follows the races b finds himself far in the rear sooner or laterusually sooner. i i i i i i i i i i i i i 4 ttlant Column ACRE lets in Lang's audition $100 $25 cash} balance any old time.

The act of settlement, by which, in 1701, parliament elected the house of Hanover to the British throne, was passed by only one vote, and this casting vote was given by Sir Arthur Owen, the member of parliament for Pembrokeshire. He arrived at West minster, dusty and travel-worn, only just in time to record his vote, hav ing ridden with furious haste from Wales for th purpose on relays of horses kept at all the posting houses along tfce route.
