The first night of this week the boys were a little off eclor from their Burlington trip, but in a scrimmage last evening they showed remarkable form and plowed large holes in the scrubs' line despite determined efforts to stop them. "Cap" Croskey may net start tha battle as he is still suffering from a cbarley horse from the first weeks of practice.

In case that Day does not make good, Hanssen nay be shifted to full for Saturday and Tomson will then fill In at half.

In Jerusalem ridiculous stories are told of the impossibility of bathing In the Dead sea, and It Is even said by the superstitious that no animals or vegetation can exist near it. The truth is that if Palestine belonged to any other power but Turkey the north ern shore of the Dead sea would prob ably become a popular bathing station and health resort, as the chloride of magnesia which enters so largely into the composition of the water would be found to have medicinal and cura tive proerties, says the Ziou Herald. So far as swimming Is concerned, the excessive buoyancy of the water of the Dead sea simply renders it dif ficult for the swimmer to make much headway, but If care be taken not to allow the salt water to get into the eyeH a swim Is both feasible and en joyable. The Dead sea contains 25 per cent of solid matter and Is, bulk for bulk, heavier than the human body. In a ton of water from the Caspian sea there are 11 pounds of salt, in the j Baltic IS pounds. In the mark sea 2-1 j pounds, in the Atlantic 31 pounds, i'l the English channel 72 pounds, in the Mediterranean 8." pounds. In the Red great city. The ancient capital as sessed In this arbitrary fashion re sented that tax after the manner of the Rostonlans of 1773. In spite of the humane object of the assessment, the citizens put a boycott on tea, and the proprietors of the tea houses cried out in protest. The prefect Issued a second procla mation, in which he assured his people that happiness was their sure reward if they cheerfully contributed to this excellent cause. This agreeable as surance had no effect on the boy cotters, and the tax bad to be removed. Perhaps this is the only instance on record where a cityful of people were banded to resist compulsory "happi ness." Youth's Companion. At High School Ellsworth F.
