Some Election Stories. There are some good stories told about the campaign that has j ist closed. One Democratic orator who thought that he could make some capiul on account of Taft's religious beliefs', struck ajmember of the denomination known as the River Brothern. "We Christian-1,'' said the Democratic orator, "'cannot afford to voto for a man for president of the United States who denies the uivtnity of the Savior. L tell you sir, th s is a most seriou9 matter. Are we to be deprived of iur Savior?" After the Democrat had exhausted his vocabulary in explaining how horrible would be the consequences of having a Unitarian president he. waited to hear from the River brother. "Don't vote?" said the surprised aud disgusted Democrat. "Don't vote? Well, sir, I must say that it is a h 1 of a church you have." Another sto-y is told ou Carpe? ter, of Marion, who thought for a time that he whs running f r th- ate senate on the Democratic iick-t. fie too became much wonted up on account, of the religious beliefs of Taft, al h--ugh it is said that ho is never seen inside of a church. "Why,' Said ho with fierce indigna tion, "it would be a d d shame for ua Christian people to have to live under a Unitarian president." SWil and Breeze. Burglars at Craig. The residence of F. S. Brownfield of this place wa? entered by burglars, pre sumably about 1 o'clock Frid-iy morn ing last, November 20th, who took Mr. IJrowntioid's smt from the chair upon which it hung at the hend of his bed and abstracted from the vest pocket a valuable gold watch, and from the trous ers pocket several dol'ars in silver. En trance to the house was a fleeted by us ing nippers upon a key left in the lock of an outside kitchen door. Over S200 worth of jewelry which lay upon a shelf in the bathroom was Unmolested, i.nd several hundred dollars' worth of plate upon the selves of the china closet was not touched. At 1 1 t J last TIi lira hiy night, Novem ber Mlth, L. ,1. Butler was awakened by smne noi-su just after retiring, and saw a man cutti. g ilw screen fr. tn a renr win do v. Butler went for his pistol, and when he returned the burglar was busy cutting the glass from the lower sash. At a distance of uot over six feet Butler drew a bead and snapped the pistol six times at the intruder, who took to his heels and ran, b;u ti ii until he had loosened some giasn, which fed with con sider ib'ie no ?e upon t.'ie floor of the porch. The hurdler was operating in a dark corner and .Mr. Bu'ler had no idea as to hU appearance. As he ran, r.St-eond pers-iu j iued i.itu at the corner of the hone. The "vsider ce of Dr. K. Kaltenbnch als i w i-at'acked last Tbursd-y night and screen not from a v: nil w. Mrs. Kaltenbacb, who was alone in the house, was aroused, nnd, sit ing up iu her bed, shouted visiorourly and the would be burclar ran. Unknown parties during the niu'nt also opened a window of the residence of ICdward Heaton. cashier of the Heaton Bank. The intrusion was not discovered until morning, and so far as could be ascertained nothing iu the bouse was disturbed. Craig Leader. Nine Great World Canals. There are nine great ship canaLs in the world, and all of these have bet n built within the last 75 years They are the Suez cinal, the Kronstadt and St. Peters' urg canal, the Corinth canal. the Manchester ship can.il, t he Kaiser Wil- helm, the Elbe and Trave. W.-l ami and the two canals conn- cling Like Superior and Lake Huron hot ween Canada and this country In a sinuie year a greater num'n-r of ships pa da through the hike canals of the north than through the Su?z can;.1, though there is no douot thai the latter ici by far the nio-t important water Jink in the world It is the Song-st. he;ng I'M tnites fr-iii entr-tncf to exit, an-I :t cont ;nor than 8R0 OOo.nC'U to build. Ab ;ut 1,000 ships pass ihrougtt the Suez c uial annually. !' tak- 1 hours for a vt-ssd lo yo the entire length of the canal. Thor 5 are tio locks, and t part of the the route, about two-thirds of it, i-made up of a series of shallow lakes. The Kronstadt and St. Petersburg canal is altogether about 10 miles long, including the bay channel. It is an im portant commercial waterway and con nects the capital of Russia with the Bay of Kronstadt. After the construction of the Corinth canal, which is only four miles long, a saving of 175 miles was madr by ships Failing from Adriatic ports. A part of this canal was cut through solid rock, and, short as it is. it took nine years to build. A direct route from Manchester, Eng laLd, to the Atlantic ocean was obtain d by the digging of the Manchester canal From Manchester 3hips now go through theartifij.il waterway to the Mersey river and from there to the open sea. This ciinal is fitted with hydraulic locks. Iu our country are three great canals, all of them links between the great lakf 9. The Welluud connects Lake Ontario and Lake Erie on the Canadian side of the river. It is 27 miles long aud has 25 sets of iocks. A Very Poor Defense. The correspondence between Senator Foraker and the chief attorney of Stand ard Oil in Ohio, jut published by the Senator, may set forth pretty nearly the extent and the character of the relations between the Senator and the trust as attorney nnd client. But this corr-e pondence does not justify that kind of employment by a servant of the people, no matter how ''conventional" it iruy have been a few years ago. Nor does it touch upon the more vital points in the Foraker letters published by Hearst. Howovef, it did not need the Hearst letters to convince the country and Ohio that Senator Foraker should not be re turned to his seat. His course in the last two sessions of congress was almost wholly opposed to the policies urged by the President and approved by the poo pie. He was one of the stumbling blocks in the way of progressive legislation. He identified him-elf with the side of the special interests rather than with the side of the people. He has been one of the frankest and most aggroasive reac tionaries. He made a mightier eflort than any other one man to encompass the defeat of Mr. Taft for the Presiden tial nomination, not so much because of any fatuous hope of securing the nomi nation himself as because Mr. Taftstocd for a continuation of the Roosevelt poli cies, which Mr. Foraker had opposod. If the Ohio senator has been sincere, us he protests he has been, then the mildest construction that he could put on his case is that the employment he accepted from the most abusive, most powerful and most lawdefy'mg trust of the country has prejudiced him against the legitimate claims of the public in re lation to corporations generally. And if this be true, then the argument that a public servant should not become an at torney for a great corporation, holding charters or franchises of great value from tho people, is made conclusive in the case of "the gentleman'from Ohio." The Largest Employer in the World. Tho United State Government em ploys something like 255,000 persons in its civil service. Most of these j ersons ! are in the departmental service, all over j tho country the customs, the postal service, the war and naval otlicee, the j agencies of the interior and the agricul-. tural department. It costs about 8131, O'JO.OflO a year to piy tl.ese public ser vants, and the average pay is more than 6550 a year. Tho govornmont forces at Washington, exclusive of ollicers of the J army and navy on duty there, is abrut 25,f-00 Vet the average pny is SI, 121) a year. This high average, of course, in-. eludes the pay of S150 a jear to the j least-paid clerk or emp!oe in the classi-, fied service and the Cabinet oflicer at ' -?S.0!.0. j All these enjoy, in addition to the high averago of pay to all elaspes, wheth er clerkp, engravers, printers, binders, electricians, messengers or charvi men, ' the assurance of prompt pay at the end t of each fortnight, a month's leave each year, and the opportunity to secure an- j other m -nth's leave, with pay, on ac count of illness. j But the government is not the only ' birije employer. The railroads of the , United States have in theirserviceabout, ' a million men. The Burlington system ) alone'lms iu its servee more men than were under Shafter at Santiago. Ex change.

The Girl VSfhs Hfersti fo Tell ths Truth And Her Mother Called St a Case j of Nervous Prostration I Once upon a linu then- was a nirl who was just about to enier upon her third season in society. She had had two very successful ars. during tho I.:r.-t of which sho had hem feted and wined and dii-d by every root and branch of iter large family connection i'ot tho Sc'ke of tho position she In Id and in the second for the sake of he; own personality, which was made up of a anieious maimer, an overweening politeness to every en and a tact that was almost uncanny in is pow'rs of st aring the feelings of others ami of always saying and doing the ri.ht thing a the right tin; On the brink ot the third season the uirl sat down and tof-k tin inventory of her stock in trade. Said she: "I was horn a tree and unconven tional spirit, and I have sold i iv birth right for a mess of popularity. I was horn truthful and I have learned to lie. I used to pride myself on -being square with the world, and now I couldn't fiiee a bare fact if my life depended upon it. I have conven tionalized myself till there is scarcely an atom of the real Me left. I do the things that the world expects me to do and say the things that the world expects me to say, and there is noth ing genuine in me. And what have I got out of it all? I am invited by people who bore me to their dull en tertainments, whore r grin and smirk and pretend I am having a good time. 1 talk to men who haven't half a grain of sense in their heads, and lead them to believe that I think they are charm ing. I am on dress narade all the time whether 1 feel like it or not, he cause I know it pavs to be called well groomed, and I csm literally feel my soul shrinking and my heart withering under it all; yet 1 haven't courage or presence of mind enough to put an end to it and he simply myself." The girl pondered for a long while, her brow puckered into a dozen lit tle interrogation points; and finally she rose to her feet with something closely fesemhling a stamp, and cried vehemently, 'Til do it! I'll take truth for my shield and honesty for my buckler, and I'll fight the world with them for my lost individuality." At which crisis the telephone hell rang violently and a voice at the other end said: "Maisie. dear, you are al ways so lovely about helping me with my afternoons, is it asking too much of you to come and sing a song or two for me to-morrow at five?" "Now or never!" the girl said to herself, with her teeth clenched, and then answered aloud: "I am afraid It is, Mrs. Chumley. I hate teas, you know, and to have the responsibility of their success or failure resting on my voice is a good deal to ask. espe cially since you have asked the same thing half a dozen times before." A horrified "Oh! 1 beg your par don I didn't know!" from the other end of the 'phone, and the receiver was hung on with a bang. "Now 1 have done it!" said the girl to herself, ruefully: but after a mo ment she brightened up. "I feel as If I had taken a tonic," she admitted. "Mist uh Johnsing to see you, miss," called the maid, tapping at her door. "At this hour? What on earth can he want?" fretted the girl. "Toil him I'll be down in a few minutes," and habit took her to the mirror, where she carelessly powdered her nose, and then as carefully brushed it off again. "If he doesn't like nie with a shiny nose it makes no difference to me." she muttered, while the little Imp of Convention whispered in her ear: "You know he's the catch of the town and your family expects you to marry him and every other girl you know is envious of his attentions to you." Poor Mr. Johnson wondered more than once what had come over the girl. She was blunt to brusqueness. She contradicted him where she was wont to agree. She laughed at his ridiculous fads which she once praised. She mocked his carefully acquired accent, and finally sent him away "because he bored her." feeling more bewildered than he had ever felt in his life and in such an upset state of mind that it required all the wiles of Susan Smith, her most dan gerous rival, to lull him to a belief in his flouted charms once more This was only the beginning of the girl's rebellion against the conven tions the poor girl, who dreamed she might rout an armed force at the point of an embroidery needle, and all for the sake of her poor little personality. "It was a splendid tonic." she soh bingly confided to herself at the end of the season, "but 1 doubt if it bene fited even me. and and Ive scarcely a friend left." Her mother told every one it was a nervous breakdown. "The child hasn't been like herself all winter." she said apologetically, wherever the world could overhear. But it was years before the girl could convention alize to the point of making the world believe she was not going to step on its toes whenever she came around. Growing a New Eye. Extraordinary statements were made at the Old Bailey in a case heard before Mr. Commissioner Luuriey. in which Tom Wallis Rogers, aged 40, described as a magnetic healer, of Gray's Inn road, was indicted on a charge of stealing 14 15s.. the money of Emma Ling, a domestic serv ant. Mr. Smith, for the prosecution, said the false pretense was that the prisoner professed to be able to cause a new eye to grow in the socket from which Miss Ling's right eye had been removed.

The head prize was neve: delivered, the winner, a lad of 14. de clining to accept it from the hand ot the hated emperor. Cornhill Maga zine. "GET MONEY'S WORTH" JOHN D. "L ick About You and Be Cautious," Advis8s Rockefeller. John D. Rockefeller, enjoying in ex cellent health and spirits his sixty ninth birthday, advised a reporter tc be careful and cautious in all business matters. "Look about you," he said. "See that you get your money's worth. 11 you don't "John Sullivan of Cleveland was proud of his reputation for generosity Everybody sought his patronage tailors, grocers, tobacconists, and sr forth and this delighted John. "But one day at his tailor's he over heard something that gave him food for thought. He had been trying on some golf trousers, and was still ir. the dressing room, but the tailor thought him gone. "'What shall I charge Mr. Sullivar for these golf trousers?' John heard the clerk ask. 'Eight dollars a pair, the same as our other patrons?' " 'Sullivan.' said the tailor, in a tone at once thoughtful and enthusiastic is a good customer. He always pays up promptly. He never haggles. Charge him $12.' " Well Answered. The captain of a schooner that trades between New York and Savan nah is noted for his wit, declares the Philadelphia Public Ledger, and on ?very occasion that offers he looses his shafts of humor, to the chagrin and embarrassment of its target. Soon t or later the stinger gets stung, and this chronic pun artist is no exception to the rule. On one occasion, when about two days out from New York, he ap proached a group of sailors who were washiug the forward deck, and sin gling out a big. raw-honed Irish man who was experiencing his first taste of sailor's life, he gravely asked: "Can you steer the main mast down the forecastle stairs?" Quick as a flash came the reply: "Yis. sor; I can. if you will stand below and coil it up." A Matchmaking College. According to president Alhrt S Hill of Lebanon University. Ohio, the influence of that institution, since it was founded 52 years ago, has result ed in 10,000 weddings. It is a coedu cational school, and Dr. Hill, who ha strong faith in the system, says: "We believe that five women will humanize at least a hundred men." The insti tution. which is quite a flourishing one, has been conducted for its more than a half a century of existence on the principles laid down by its foun der, Alfred Holhrook. Leslie's Week ly.
