Would men ever get anywhere, do you think, if they fussed around with as many disconnected things as most women do? And the worst of our case is that we are rather inclined to point with pride to what la really one of the most vicious habits of our sex. We have all seen the swelling satis faction with which the comely young schoolmaam, complimented upon a pretty gown, announces. "I made it myself.". And w? have all heard the chorus of admiring approbation follow Ing t he announcement joined in it, perhaps, and asked to borrow the pat tern. But really, viewed In the light of reason, what Is there aoout tne real upon which she should so plume her self? Suppose tiiat a man should point proudly to his nether garments and say: Ix: I made tnese trousers. i have not a mental picture of even the most economical of his fellow clerks or mail carriers, or clergymen, or school teachers, crowding around to admire and cry: "Whet a splendid way to spend your time out of business hours!

ODD FELLOWS TO HONOR DEPARTED Annual Memorial Exercises Will Be Held Tomorrow at Chip piannock Cemetery. MIDSUMMER DAY TO BE OBSERVED VISIONS IN THE EYES. WAEN wr, WE SUGGEST THAT ALL STRANGERS CALL ING AT DIFFERENT HOUSES. CLAIMING TO BE REPRESENTATIVES OF PEOPLE'S POWER CO.. BE MADE TO SHOW THEIR BADGE. AS ALL EMPLOYES HAVE A BADGE, When a person winks his eyes he momentarily covers the eittire eye balls and everything therefore should turn absolutely black and be In total darkness for the Instant. As a matter of fact, he certainly is in total dark- ne&s. but he is unconscious or same. I Tiie reason lie Is unconscious is that j the eye Is incapable of removing a cer tain view from itself until an eighth or a second has elapsed. So the view seen Just before the ball goes into eclipse continues to be seen for an eighth of a second. But as the eye is not covered by the lid as long as this. a new view arrives to supplement the old view before the old one has van ished. Thus the darkness Is not no ticed, although there Is no doubt that I It exists. The same peculiarity or the eye en ables moving pictures to have their I bing. It also is the reason why a lighted torch whirled rapidly around shows a path instead of a sequence of torches. Also why a rapidly routing wheel does not show its spokes. If a I snapshot be taken of such a wheel it i does show the spokes, however, and proves the above fact of persistence, j Of if the wheel be viewed by a light ning nasn it snowa mem. .ew ora orld.

Pots and pans, whether of Iron or tin (which is only Iron tinned over), get holes in their bottoms all too soon to please the economical housekeeper. Then it becomes necessary to call in the tinsmith, who puts a lump of solder In the hole. This soon melts, and the hole Is there agaift. But nothing is easier than to repair such holss at home and without the aid of a tinsmith. First of all make the hole round by Inserting the point of a knife and twisting It back and forth. Place the pot or pan upon any flrm. fiat niece of metal, such as an anvil, a bar of iron or aa inverted flat- The police heave sighs of relief for they believe that they have at last ridden the city of the Sheldons. This morning the two arrested yesterday, just two iiours after released from the county jail, where they served 30 days, appeared in police court. :! "Well, well, here's the braves," said Magistrate Smith. "You two have got us cheated. We're beat we don't know what to do with you." The man and woman sat before the magistrate with bowed heads. Finally Sheldon, probably the most- arrested man during the past year in the city. begged for the mercy of the court. ' It was the same old plea. He said that he and his wife would get out of town. Magistrate Smith suggested that he vas the two for six months, later stating that the better plan might be to seutence the woman only three months. This brought tears to Shel don's eyes. Finally the magistrate told them that he would give them one final chance to get out of Rock Island and stay out. They promised faithf illy to go and the police believe that they will keep their word. " . Magistrate Smith promised them, however, that if they were caught again in the city he would give them six months each and continue to ad minister similar sentences until they finally iu desperation would leave town.
