DECISION EASY TO ENFORCE.
Judge Had So Mutilated Bird That Resistance Was In Vain. Judge Loveland of Strafford, Vt, a classmate of Daniel Webster in Dart . mouth college, resembled him In some things. He did not like to have any body get the best of him. On certain occasions "an oath" was an absolute necessity to him, although of a different type from those he was in the habit of administering to oth ers. Not long after his appointment as Judge he and a party of acquaint ances were invited to Christmas din ner at a friend's house. To him was "The Court Rules That You Lie There." assigned the honor of presiding at the head of the table to carve the turkey. He had never done such a thing in his life, but did not like to decline, neither did he wish to acknowledge his ig norance. Consequently, he went about his task, apparently as unconcerned as any of the party in waiting. The wing was the first part he at tacked, and only after much hacking and cutting did he at last succeed in cutting it off. Then he took the leg J and found that still more difficult to manage. He worked at it very quiet ly for a time, as he could not work and talk, too. Finally, after consider able maneuvering to find the best place to strike, he brought the knife down with almost herculean force, completely severing it from the body. In doing this he gave the body such a twist that it slipped from the platter onto the tablecloth beyond, minus both wing and leg. He dropped the knife in dismay, the perspiration oozing from every pore of his body when he saw what he had done. "Well," he said, "d n you, the court rules that you lie there; you can neither fly nor run." HORSE IS FOND OF BEER. Peculiar Taste Developed by New Jer sey Quadruped. A bay horse owned by John Semp ler, a contractor of Bloomfield, N. J., left standing in Glenwood avenue, the other morning while the boy who had been leading it went into a restaurant to get his breakfast The check rein had been thrown over a post, but the animal had no trouble in freeing itself, l and crossed the street to a barroom. Open went the swinging doors and in stalked the horse. The patrons were astonished and dropped their glasses in surprise. They made room for the animal, which went to the bar and be gan to whinny. "What's the matter, old fellow!" asked the bartender. "He's dry, I guess," said some one. A bottle of beer was opened and its neck thrust into the horse's jaws. The animal swallowed its contents. A sec ond bottle met a similar fate, and then the horse walked out, seemingly con tented. When last seen it was walk ing straight. IS PUZZLE TO ANTIQUARIES.

Proud Father Spared Neither Expense Nor Time in Providing Hi Heir With a Magnificent Vehicle for His Daily Rides. Master Harold Nulton. the four- months-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Ches ter Nulton. of Philadelphia, rides in the finest baby carriage in the world. The carriage, not counting time and labor, cost $S40, the price represent ing the material alone. Master Nulton is not wealthy, nor heir to millions possibly not to thou sands. He lives with his parents in a modest cottage out near Fairmount park, and his father works for a mod erate salary for a firm of commission men down town. The baby carriage, with its gorgeous trappings and expen sive material, is the only unusual fea ture connected with the baby's life. but it is unusual enough to attract the attention of hundreds of persons who sees it in the park on fair after noons. In July, when the baby was born, Chester Nulton vowed that it should have the finest baby carriage in the world. Before he went into the com mission business Nulton was a car riage maker. He had learned the trade as a boy, and always had a taste for mechanical work, especially for fine cabinet work. The first step he took toward building the finest baby carnage in tne world was to oruer a set of wheels made of pure silver. The hubs, the frame work and the springs were made of finest burnished copper, while the canopy top of the baby cab was fastened to the body with a socket joint of brass, and attached to the joint itself was a shield of pure gold, covering the joint and ornamenting the side of the cab. The metal fixtures, including wheels, running gear and the gold hardware. all were designed by the proud father, although the work was done by others. But he insisted upon doing the wood work himself. For the body of the baby cab he se lected mahogany and white holly. The rich, deep red wood he cunningly joined to the pure white of the holly so that the mahogany formed the out side of the cab and the holly the in side. Both woods were polished to the highest degree, and in the mahogany he inlaid the initials of his baby in ivory at each side, and in front placed a tiny crest in gold buried in the dark wood. He worked for three weeks building and finishing the woodwork for the cab and planning the framework of the canopy. The canopy itself is the real work of art of the entire thing. It is . . , .

Nulton refused to do it, de claring he was satisfied to have his baby own the finest baby carnage in the world. A Gift of Solomon's.

A better application of the hack neyed proverb, "A place for every thing, and everything in its place." could not be made than when used in reference to shoes that are, for the time being, not required. To arrange a place for them, and especially so if there should be many. is a necessity and our sketch illus trates a capital way of doing this. The '"cabinet" may bo constructed from any strong wooden box or packing-case, of a suitable size, and the lid may be dispensed with. The box stands on one side and bars of wood are fixed across the interior in the manner shown. This is easily done, the bars of wood are carefully cut to fit, and nails run through from the out side of the case to hold them in their places. The heels of the shoes rest over (he upper bars, and the toes on the lower, a much better plan than placing the shoes on the floor if they should happen to be damp, as the soles are exposed to the air and dry much more quickly than they would on a shelf or the ground. A curtain made of some pretty piece of drapery can be tacked to the upper edge of the box, and while hiding the contents from view, it is easily lifted when any of the boots or shoes are required. The sides also may be draped, and a pot with a fern or other ornaments may find a place on the top. BORDERS ON THE PARASOLS. Pretty Idea That Has the Sanction of Dame Fashion. Bordered parasols are the latest edict of fashion which her devotees are bound to carry out, for the fashion is a pretty one. The bordered pon gees are charmingly .attractive. They are usually made with the border well up from the edge, and It is very much the style to have two kinds of pongee, or pongee and rajah, or pongee and linen, enter into the composition of the parasol instead of one material. The center of the parasol will be made of a rather heavy pongee or rajah,, for instance, and then the bor der of vivid colors set between this center and an outer band of light weight and light-colored material. The borders are some of them wov en into the parasols, which then are all of one material, but in many In stances this is. not so, the borders be ing merely set In. All the chintz and cretonne patterns which have now be come so fashionable for trimming lin en and lawn frocks are reproduced in the pongees and rajahs for use on these parasols. The Mackintosh. To clean a mackintosh of rubber ized material, wash it only In cold water. Use yellow soap and scrub r thoroughly on the inside and outside Rinse It several times, Do not attempt to wring it, but wipe the coat careful ly with dry cloths. Hang it on a wire coat hanger and place it in a room where there is a free circulation of air. It will take some time to dry, but It will be as good as new when clean. If it has a cloth lining it can be pressed with a moderately hot iron, but the iron must be quickly passed over the material on the inside only. Toe clip rubbers worn during the sum mer should le washed inside and out. They can be turned wrong side out. scrubbed and thoroughly cleansed. turn when dry and polish the outside with ordinary shoe polish. Quaint Fans from Far Away.

A new shape for the summer hat Is known as the "violet," for it is copied from the leaves of that modest little I flower. The straw is formed like a j heart-shaped plateau, but at the wide ' end the two semi-circles are curled un j der and the angle of the heart falls , directly In the back. The honnet, when finished, has a point at the top or the head, while the straw curves un and then down in a point in the middle of the front, leaving room for the rather wide pompadour at each side of the head. The trimming can consist of only a wreath of plumes or flowers, ending In tiny bunches at each side of the front, while a little niching under the brim adds much to the effect Saul and Jonathan Slain in Battle Smaity Scbool Leuoa for Sept. 6, 1906 Specially Arranged for This Paper LESSON TEXT. 1 Samuel chapter II.

B. C. 1027 In Revised Chro nology. PLACE. On the northern slopes of Mount Gilboa were encamped the army of Saul: the Philistine army at Shunem. The valley of Jezreel lay between them. Comment and Suggestive Thought. Saul and the Witch of Endor. Saul, brave as he was. felt a deep depres sion of spirit. Why? It was not so much the numbers and battle array of the invading army, as his feeling of guilt and of loss of the favor of God. There is nothing so weakening and depressing as a guilty conscience. Saul made every effort to obtain the favor and aid of Jehovah, except the only one that could have bem suc cessful: complete repen'anco of sin and turning with his whole heart to God. Like the kiug in U:i:nle:. ho ct'uld not try what repentance could do. Vcause he would iw repent. I lis last resort was to find a sorcer ess or witch, the whole tribe of which he had driven from his kingdom, be cause they led men away from God Saul learned that eight or ten miles away to the north in some of the re mote gorges of Little Hermon. near Endor. a sorceress "had built herself a cabin, and there in gloom and ob scurity plied her unholy arts." There are two possible interpreta tions: First. That the Avoiran was inter rupted and frigh-onod by the unex pected, actual an oarance of Samuel, whose voice Saul heard, but whom he did not see; and that Samuel uttered the terrible words of condemnation against Saul. Second. That the whole scene was a deception on the part of the woman. She recognized Saul, and was glad of an opportunity to revenge upon him the evil he had done to her race. She acted astonished, and made Saul think she saw Samuel. Then she put in the prophet's mouth only the doom which seemed probable, and, as Mil man says, "excepting the event of the approaching battle, the spirit said nothing which the living prophet had not said before repeatedly and pub licly." V. 1. "And the men of Israel fled before the Philistines." Saul's three sons, including Jonathan, were slain. The Philistines drove the people out of their town and occupied the terri tory (v. 7). "Gibeah, Saul's own city, was thrown into terror. The royal family fled for their lives. In the flight the nurse let fall Mephlbosheth, the son of Jonathan, then a child of five years of age. He was lamed for life (2 Sam. 4:4)." James Sime. The Death of Saul. In the general rout, Saul realized that there was no way of escape. He was in despair. His army was gone, his son slain, he himself was wounded and weak, and God was not with him. He had "supped full of horrors." Finding he could not escape, "Saul took a sword and fell upon it" (4), the hilt on the ground and the point at his heart. Thus father and son lay dead together on the field of battle. 9. "And they cut off his head." To send as a trophy and proof of their victory. It was hung in the temple of Dagon at Ashdod (1 Chron. 10:10). "Stripped off his armor, and sent into the land ... to publish it in the house of their idols." A Heroic and Loving Deed. V. 11. "The Inhabitants of Jabesh-gilead heard." Jabesh-gilead was a city of Manasseh, east of the Jordan, "about ten miles across the Jordan valley from Bethshan. The inhabitants re membered the splendid feat of arms by which King Saul at the very begin ning of his reign delivered them from the Ammonites under Nahash, who agreed to spare them only on condi tion of the loss of their right eyes. The men in grateful memory res cued these trophies, burned the decay ing bodies, and gave their bones an honored burial. What Aids Did Saul Have Toward I a Blessed Life? (1) He had a long pe- riod of hQme preparjtIon an(J in little things till his powers were matured before hc was cao1 tQ sys. tan the straJn of th(J CQUrt battlefield (2) Saul as king was re- quired (see Deut. 17:lS-20) to writo ' out a copy of the law, thus becoming thoroughly acquainted with it better than by almost any Qther means; an(, tnen he must ..read thereln a1 t,H, davs of his ifo (3) gaul receive(1 snecial influences of the Holy Spirit (1 Sam 10:6) mt;ng him for hjs reat dutles (4) He hUi the aMiitv to become a warrior and statesman, a great benefactor of his nation, edu cating them in religion, defending them against enemies, building them up in prosperity and true success. What Was the Central Source of His Failure? It was a wrong choice. He would not yield himself heart and soul to God, as David did? Everyone makes mistakes and er rors, but they are not absolutely de structive so long as one's central aim and purpose is to do God's will. "The will is the ranking official of all in man." "It is the will which creates the man." A wrong choice is "as a poison in the blood which permeates arteries, veins, nerves, brain and heart, and speedily brings paralysis or death."
