THE NEW JUST COAX THE SPRING. Hov to Start a Clock After Winding It Too Tightly. I If In winding a clock actuated by a anrlng you have given the key a taro too much and so bare wound the spring so tight that the clock won't run you don't have to take the clock to a clock- maker to have the spring unwound. l'ou can start It yourself If you will go about It the right way and exercise a little patience. I Jarring or shaking the clock does no good. What you want to do Is to bold It op and turn it right and left quickly. but gently, to oscillate the balance wheel. The object of this, of course. Is to set the clock In action and free the spring from the bludlng restraint upon It, give the spring a little play. a chance to exercise Its own power. II your owu airona; nnu wi uhmuu , tightly to yoor sirte yda'couldn t rise It at all, but if you could work your arm free just a little bit you could then break loose. It is so with the tightly wound clock spring. Give it Just a little of play and It will then be able to exert itself. With your first oscillation the balance wheel will stop after half a dozen ticks, but that has helped. Keep this up for ten or fifteen minutes and you will then have given the clock spring play enough to enable it to exert its own power and keep the clock going.- New York Sun.

How the Moat Supply Is Kept Safo In One Alaskan Town, "Very patriotic lot of people live here, I see," is the remark made by almost every newcomer to the frontier town of Knik, Alaska, at the heed of Cook's inlet, when they see that almost every house is supplied with a flagpole. And they are right about the patriot ism, but it Just happens that the poles are not for flags, but for meat. Knik Is on the trail to Iditarod and the Kuskokwim valley, and in the summer the sled dogs and the flies are so thick that it is impossible to keep meat In ordinary caches near the ground. There is no butcher shop in Knik and the only fresh meat is moose or Alaska sheep brought in by tho hunters. It's very bandy for the housewives of Knik to have the meat supply of the town up in the air. If hubby has poor luck with bis gun and the supply runs out. all she has to do Is to go to the door, pick out her neighbor who has the largest supply on band and go borrow a steak or two. The meat Is fastened securely to a rope and It is run up to the top of the pole very much the same as a flag would be. Milwaukee Journal. Bullets That Corns Back. Speaking about a purchase of a large quantity of zinc instead of sheet lead for the manufacture of coffins, two men interested In metals Joined in the following discussion: "That Is a final consumption," said one. "That metal never comes back into the market" "There are others, replied bis friend, "shot and bullets, for example." "You are only partially correct," replied the first "Some of the bullets come back. They are so economical aud so well organized in Germany that after military target practice the soldiers have to pick up and account for all the lead they have fired. They are no theorists about con servation over there. They ure practi tioners." Engineering and Miulug Journal. BULLET AND BIBLE. One Triad to Take a Man's Life, While the Other Saved It. To illustrate the bullet resisting pow era of papers, a veteran war corre spondent brought for the Inspection ot some of his Journalistic colleagues a pocket book filled with photographs and paper and a Bible, each of which on separate occasions had been Instru mental in saving bis life in the conrsc of tho Russo-Turkish war. In one Instance be was knocked oil his horse by tho Impact ot a bullet and became unconscious, only to find on re gaining bis senses that the friendly wallet had prevented the bullet enter lug bis body. On the second occasion, at Plevna, the Bible, which ho bad placed In a side pocket, deflected a heavy piece of shrapnel that threaten ed to end. his existence. He had kept the wallet Intact aa a memento of his esTtpe. and one of th Journalists who wus eiiimiultig lu contents came, by a curious coiuci dence, upon a letter which be blmsell bad Indited to the war correspoadenl some thirty or forty years ago, thi very existence of which he bad en tirely forgotten. In the letter be bad expressed tb hope that his friend would return safe and sound from the seat of war. Th words "safe and sound" had been al most cut away by the bullet, which, but for the providential Interposition of the bundle of papers, would proba bly bave ended the war correspond ent's life. Nottingham Guardian. To Bad With Drum and Shot, From the following story it would seem that the cadets at West Tolnt are not the only persons who sometimes find taps and the sunrise gun annoying. The wife of one of the officers there had a colored maid who wus giving satisfaction aud wus apparently well pleased with her position. Mrs. Brown wus therefore amazed when Bailie came to ber uud told her she could not work there any longer. "Will you tell me why you are leav ing, SalUo'.'" ber tulBtress asked. "Mis' Lizzie." abe answered. "Ah likes you an' Ah likes de kunnel an' Ah likes de chillen. But Ah can't stay nowhar wbar Ah has to be drummed to bed at night and shot out of bed In de mawuln'." New York Post Gaucho and Gringo.

GOOD ROADS AND THRIFT. Franoa 8ets an Example tho Rest ol the World Might Follow. Good farms and good roads go to gether. Good roads mean cheaper haul ing prices, better profits therefore more money. The wealth of a nation Is the wealth of Its population. Tbt population of the country of France i known to be the most thrifty, the least poverty stricken and the best provided for of any country In the world. And France has a better road system and more good roads In proportion to It area than any other country of the same or greater size. Has France ru ral wealth because of Its good roads ot has It good roads because of Its thrifty peasantry? It is, therefore, for us In this country to look upon France not only as a good example, but as the example of the fulfillment of dreams. We cannol solve our problem in any other wn j tban as France has solved hers with any surety of success. Bbe builds ber national highways first owns them, controls them, repairs them. She has ber department ber divisions corre sponding to our states build tbelrown roads as feeders of this system, con necting with It Joining national road to national road. Finally ber parishes or communes similar political divi sions to our counties build their own roads, interlacing, connecting and bind ing tog-ether the whole into one vast network of hard surfaced roads.

Tho (Juerriere, a helpless wreck, was rolling In the trough of the sea. while her brave but defeated commander. Captain Ducres of the royal navy, on the deck uf the American frícate, the Constitution, wus offering bis sword to gallant Captain Hull. The two otlicers bud been friends In time of peace, having often exchanged hospitalities at the Mediterranean ports, aud now Hull's niaguauimity shone out "I'll 'not take your sword, Dacres." said be. "Keep It" In the meanwhile the boats of the Constitution were busily engaged In transporting the crew of the defeated ship t( the deck of the victor. A mid shlpmpn reported to the first lieuten ant that the ahlp'a bell had been car ried away by a grapeshot from the Guer riere and that there was no wsy of announcing the time to the ship's company. At that moment the Guerrler gave a succession of heavy plunges, and the clear tones of a tine bell rang over the water. "Go get the Englishman's bell," said the lieutenant to the midshipman. "There will be no further use for It on board that craft" The Guerriere surrendered at 7 o'clock in the evening of Aug. 19, 1812, and at 8 o'clock the same evening Pe ter Secest's bell in sonorous tones rang out the hour on board "Old Ironsides." (-- With- the Inpse of time the bell, amid the confusion and debris common to a great navy yard, became misplaced, lost its Identity and was thrust care lessly to one side. It found Its way to the scrap heap, was afterward sold by the United Statea and finally came to rest lu Its present quarters. Boston Post AN ANIMAL IN PAIN.

It is a platitude that "pain is as one feels It" But that statement falla a considerable way ahort of the truth. The measure of pain undoubtedly de ponds as much upon realization, com parison and constructive memory aa opon sensation. In other words, the Individual with the most highly devel oped imagination enjoya and suffers most Intensely, though not perhaps most violently. Pain and death are terrible In proportion aa one Is capable of relating them to experience. To children they are not terrible In thla sense, because children have small experience and even amaller powers of imagining relations. In the cose of animals the power of constructing a memory picture and re lating the same to present conditions Is probably exceedingly low. If not en tirely absent I'aln to an animal rep resents an unpleasant experience begun and ended sharply. It la un related. It has no social or moral sig nificance. It Is not terrible In the wide sense.
