It seems strange, so far as I know Shakespearean literature, that no crit ic has perceived the remarkable applic ability of the tragedy es Amy Robsart to Hamlet James Westfall Thompson writes in the North American Review. The language of the play most star tlingly fits in with the case of Amy Robsart, the suspicion resting upon Lei- ; cester of having compassed her mur der, and the suspected liaison be tween Leicester and Elizabeth. As long as Elizabeth lived even j guarded criticism was dangerous. It required a change of dynasty to re lease even veiled speech. As for flat open discussion of the mystery of Amy Robsart or any other murder case of Bote, it was still quite Impossible. Hence Shakespeare’s resort to a drama In which under camouflaged guise Lon doners might perceive the real spirit and condition of the age. Hamlet is the most brilliant assortment of dou- ; ble-edged language, covert criticism, cutting allusions to contemporary ■ men, women and events, burning scorn, I withering irony, to be found in any literature. If read aright, the play dazes and astounds the reader by its keenness, its satire, the stinging lash of its language, its mockery or con demnation of some of the very great est personages in Elizabethan Eng land. Punishing Unfortunates. Many Italian cities during the Mid dle ages had a curious way of punish ing bankrupts. A large stone was set up in the market place of the town, and to this stone, on a certain day, were led ail traders who had failed within the last year. One by one they were placed in the center of the stone, and their balance sheets were read to the crowd, which was permitted to jeer at each one in turn for a specified time, the presiding official “calling time" on the abuse by striking on a bell. When the jeering was over the bank rupt was bereft of a necessary por tion of his clothing and seized by the shoulders and knees by six pub lic officers, who deliberately bumped him on the stone 12 times, In honor, it Is said, of the Twelve Apostles. Schoolboys were encouraged to attend this performance, as It was considered to give them a wholesome lesson in commercial ethics. First Jews In America. There may have been a few Jews tiere before 1654, but it was in that ■year that they were definitely allowed ito seek asylum in New Netherlands. [There was a provision that “Jews ■ shall have permission to sail to and trade in New Netherlands and to live and remain there, provided the poor among them shall not become ft burden to the company (Dutch West Our Service The Cody Laundry keeps abreast of the times in equip ment and methods.

George Borrow's Dialogue. Circumstantial as Defoe, rich in combinations as Lesage, and with such an instinct of the picturesque, both personal and local, as none of theft possessed, this strange wild man holds on his strange wild way, and leads you captive to the end. Moreover, that his dialogue should be set down hi racy, nervous, idiomatic English, with a kind of language at once primitive and scholarly, forceful but homely—the speech of the artist in sods and turfs, —if at first it surprise and charm, yet It ends by seeming so natural and just that you go on to forget all about it, and accept the whole thing as the genuine outcome of a man’s experi ence, which it purports to be. —Henley. Made Paradise for Birds. A naturalist is the last person In the world one would expect to succeed as a farmer. They won’t plow a field if a bird has made Its nest there. John J. Audubon, greatest nature student of his day, bought 40 acres at Car mansville, on the Hudson, to do some i farming. The best part of his prop- I erty was fenced in for deer, elk. and wolves. His orchard, 200 trees of apples, pears, plums, apricots, and nec tarines, was left as a paradise for birds —it was Audubon’s study. How ever he had no scruples against fish ing, and caught 200-pound sturgeons in the Hudson. Life's Darkest Moment. I came running home and told my aunt I had a date with the prettiest girl In school. She said I could not go until I wore long trousers. After supper I decided I would slip off and go. So 1 went to my room, dressed In the dark and beat IL Just as I stepped in the door at the home of the girl, I looked down to see what kind of a job I had done lacing my shoes in the dark. But no sooner had I looked than I backed out of the door. For my aunt had sewed white nifties on the bottom of my short trousers. — Chicago Journal. Many Bug Varieties. We have In the United States a long list of Insects we usually desig nate as beetles, says the American Forestry Magazine. There are some fifteen thousand different kinds of them, and they range In size all the way from little ones that it almost requires the use of a microscope to see, to such giants as the Spotted Horn beetle. Origin of Names. No matter who you are It Is likely that the origin of your name lies in the occupation of some of your re mote ancestors, the evolution of which -Ln many cases is remarkable if ’not I romantic. Sometimes personal ap i pearance or characteristics were I seized on to designate one person from another, or resemblance to some ani mal. "Tally-ho!" and "Tantivy!" "Tally-ho!” was the English hunts man’s cry to encourage his hounds, es pecially when the fox broke covert. The term Is also used to denote a four in-hand coach, or drag. “Tantivy” was the bunting cry to denote that the chase was In full swing. It wa» probably formed In Imitation of the note of the hunting horn. Birds in the Dark. Not a few birds practically rear their nestlings In the dark, says the American Forestry Magazine. Well known examples of this are seen In sand martins and kingfishers—birds that dig, or scrape out, iong burrows In banks, and lay their eggs at the farther end of them. Why Leek Is Welsh Emblem. | While marching to battle against an English army In A. D. 640, Welsh sol diers plucked leeks to place in their caps to distinguish themselves from the enemy. They won a great victory that day, and the leek was chosen as the emblem of Wales. All Peace Departed. There were twin babies at Edith’s house, and at first she was all taken up with them. A caller, congratulat ing her on their presence there,* re ceived this startling answer: “If there was only one It wouldn’t be so bad, but now when one isn’t crying the other is, and it’s cry, cry all the time.” Evolution of Familar Word. The tracing of the term “pocket handkerchief” reveals some somewhat peculiar facts. At first it was de scribed as kerchief (couvre-chef), a covering for the head carried in the hand, and at length pocket-hanker chief, a covering for the head held in the hand and kept in the pockeL The Guinea Stamp. Nothing goes by luck in composi tion; it allows of no trick. The best you can write will be the best you are. Every sentence is the result of a long probation.

Press dispatches state that grain and potato producers In the Northwest have suffered a loss ot 1450,000,000 on account of failure ot transportation facilities. Handling ot th sugar beet crop In our districts this fall has been completed without any loss to growers by reason ot railway difficulties. Almost Insurmountable obstacles were over come In providing cars to move the beets to factories with short campaigns. A mlnlmun of piling was required of the growers. While at some times sugar shipments were delayed nothing was remitted to hold up the movement of the raw, perishable beets from the farms. The successful transportation o* this beets from the farms. The successful transportation of this year's beet crop reflects great credit upon the railroads In our territory, who co-operated to the utmost. The sugar beet crop is the one farm product with a positive and easy cash market, with no storage or car shortage problems to worry the great mass of our growers. No dullness in the su gar market nor any fluctuation In prices affects the delivery of the sugar beet crop by farmers. And the sliding scale contract for bsets makes It the only crop which leaves the farmer a financial Interest. In hie' product after the buyer gets it.
