Dr Llndsley came here at the request of Health Officer Smith. At a meeting "of the board of warden and burgesses, held Tuesday evening, the health officer was authorized to pro cure an expert to asslwt him in stamp ing out the scarlet fever. Dr Llnds ley said he did not think n expert could do any more than Is being done At .present,: and furthermore he said more and extreme precautionary meas ures should be taken by the doctors. A lively word tllt took place between Pr Delaney and Health Officer Smith. The remarks passed were quite per sonal and the altercation was quite warm while It lasted. WlTillam Stevenson, who was Injured by falling on defective sidewalk at the corner of South Main and Hotcta kls streets last winter, lias ettled his claim for damage against the borough for $287.15, The Borough improvement society has placed trash boxes on all the street In the center of the borough and It 1st to be hoped they will bo made us of by the public. Parents of children who attend school should advise their young hopefuls to throw the banana s n$I orange peels and such like Into these boxes Instead of on the street. If this Is done It will be a great-help towards attaining the object of the for mation of the Jipetety. It la reported that the public dumping ground ; will be oh Rubber avenue somewhere be tween the corner of Cherry street and the Ice houses.

All over the great stats of Illinois the farm-grown boys are rreDarlntr to produce th finest boy-grown corn that ever peeped from earth or waved its broad sword leaves laaily in the prairie unshlne. W'll B. Otwell. suDerinten- dent of the agricultural department of tne Illinois exhibit for .the world's fair of 1004 at St Louis, is responsible for this splendid burst of rural enterprise. The prise corn is for exhibit at the world's fair and Mr Otwell has sent out 120,000 circulars announcing the conditions of the contest. Each boy in Illinois, whether he gets a circular or not, is entitled to BOO grains of the best white corn for 5 cents, and with those ow grains he can enter the contest for prizes amounting in , all to $3,000 in value. The corn is a Quality that yielded last year as high as ninety-five bushels , to the acre. The , scheme is wholly Mr Otwell's. He has held two similar contests on n smaller scale in Macoupin county. Il linois, wlth; great success. The first contest was held two years ago with 500 boys competing. The second year 1,500 boys grew corn and a very fine crop was displayed. In speaking of the present contest Mr Otwell ', says: "In the world's fair contest that has now been fairly started the success will be even, better in proportion from the fact that the Interest has, to a great extent, spread over the state, the pre miums offered are far greater, and the fair is a greater attraction than a coun ty Institute. It is our plan to arrange all the corn grown by these boys at the fair, and "we hope, to have the finest display ever seen In this country." Some of the best known men in the state are included in the prise-givers. The Hon A. I. Krrrick of Bloomlngton heads the list with the great sweep stake prise, a fine pure-bred Aberdeen yearling calf, valued at $700. The other prjes ranare in value from $5 up. and are so attractive that every boy in the state will be delighted with them. The plan Is for the boys to deliver their corn to the county farmers insti tutes In the county in which they live, and the president of the institute will ship the corn to Carllnvllle after th county institute I over, where it will be carefully packed and preserved un til the fair onens In St Touis. Each boy's name will be attached to the corn after the prizes have ben awarded, and the display will bo one of the most interesting at the' fair. . , . . Does Gold Orowt There are .s.o.me. reasons for answer ing the. question, "Does gold grow?" in th affirmative, but we must not ex pect, to grow golden eagles from. dol lars.

It is claimed that nug gets found in plaoers are the forma tions from the waters that percolate through the gravels and ars not from decomposed quarts, as is generally sup posed. . .Those, who so contend sight the fact that in. the center of nuggets can be found a small grain of iron sand.

With wonder written on their faces. three children, deaf, dumb and blind, recently heard a pianist play Sousa marches, heard a phonograph repeat the sounds, and finally were astounded to hear the sounds of . their own voices utter the words, "mamma," papa" and "hello" in quavering child ish treble. Miller Reese Hutchinson, a young Alabamian, who was recently decora ted by Queen Alexandra for his efforts in behalf of the deaf had Invited some of his friends to his laboratory to watch some experiments with his newest instruments for making the deaf hear. They came in troops. One of the first to arrive, and the last tp go was the Duke of Newcastle. Another was Dr. Currier of the; New York Institute for the Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb, who had Prof. Van Tassell escort six boys and four girls, all afflicted with deafness, to the laboratory. W, J. Hammer, a well-known member of the Institute of Electrical Engineers; H. W. Webb, Mrs. J. H. White. Mrs.: George Kidd, Miss Kidd, Mrs. P. S. Jennings,. Miss Jennings and Dr. Clarence Sharp, of the Presbyterian hospital, were among the others present. . The young inventor said he thought he had perfected an instrument that meant as much for the ear as eye- dasses meant for impaired vision, for t could be adjusted to any degree or peculiarity of deafness, unless due to absolute . paralysis of the auditory nerve or to the removal of the tiny bones of the middle ear through an op eration. . The Invention consists, primarily, of a transmitter, an ear piece and a small electric battery. It Is far less con spicuous than any other form of hear ing instrument, no part of it actually appearing In sight except the - ear piece, which may be covered by the hand. v The battery may be carried in the waistcoat pocket. The transmit ter is worn under the coat or In the folds of a dress and the ear piece is no larger than a watch case. By means 'N of these instruments sound is projected into the ear in a manner to stimulate the auditory nerve. The volume of sound has noth ing to do with the action of these in struments. A whisper sounds ' as plainly as - a' shout. The ' penetrating quality of the electric sound, wave ap parently disregards the mechanism of the outer ear and affects 1 the : Jnner ear direct. The first patient .brought out to try the effects of-the Invention was Orris Benson, who is blind, deaf and dumb. Dr. Sharp tried to make him hear In various ways, with a tuning fork be tween his teeth and pressed against 'his skull, and by shouting in his ear all in vain. The little Instrument was then clapped to the lad's ear, the cur rent switched on," and Mr. Hutchinson said in an . ordinary conversational tone, "Papa." The youth raised his sightless eyes to his friend, Prof. Van Tassell, and worked hi a fingers rapid ly In the sign language. . "He says he can hear something, but doesn't know what it is," remark ed Professor Van Tassell. The cur rent vas made stronger. The youth's eyebrows were raised and he smiled. Then he tried to repeat the syllables and in a wlerd treble cried shrilly "Pah-pah." . Noticing that the patient was becom ing excited over his novel experience, Mr Hutchinson suggested that one of the girls be brought into, the reception room. A pretty, rosy cheeked girl, 18 years old. who had lost sight and hearing through exposure a dozen years ago was led into the room. She could not hear a sound, no mat ter, how loud, right against her ear, but when she had the ear piece of the Instrument fastened to her head and the pianist at the end. of the room be gan ito play Sousa march, her cheeks flushed crimson and her fingers beat time on a table. The other hand sought the hand of the teacher be hind her and twinkled: "What Is it? I hear something, but I fion't know what It Is. It is beautiful. Can I have It?" . ; , ' ; , When Prof Van Tassell had trans lated what the girl's "fingers had said one or Jwo of the women present re marked that they did not know wheth er the experience was more remarka ble than it was pathetic. ' Another ' girl, born blind, deaf and dumb, clapped her hands in ecstaey when she heard her own vojee say Mammai" and reached out wistfully toward the piano when the musician stopped playing and the new harmon ies, died out of her ear but lingered in her memory. . To illustrate how the invention mag nified and transmitted sound, a mega phone attached to a phonograph and connected with the battery and trans mitter wais put out of a window a block away from Herald square. As the notes of the Toreador's song from "Carmen" floated out on the1 air. peo ple a block away on Broadway stopped and turned to try and catch the point whence the music emanated, and men In the. elevated ralldoad trains rushed to the platforms.. bewildered at . the volume of sound and the inability to trace It to its source. New York Her ald. About DIood Folsonlns;. Blood poisoning is tow recognized as poisoning by a , living organism, while ordinary poisoning . is by some chemical substance devoid of life. Blood poisoning took i,ts name before its nature was properly understood, and it was thought to be a form of ordinary poisoning, but that the blood rather than the "vital principles" was chiefly attacked. As the stomach can, as a rule, destroy the life of most or ganisms, while it can oniy to a limited extent alter the constitution of chem ical poisons, poisoning by livingorgan Isms, or blood poisoning, is tsar more common through wounds than by things eaten, and thua the idea of its being n poisoning of the blood was strengthened. As a "blood poison" is alive, it can, and often does, go on in creasing after its first ingestion, and the most obvious difference between the two is that blood poisoning gen erally begina with slight symptoms, and increases Indefinitely, while ordi nary poisoning reaches its height al most at once.

The Tables Turned By LENA BL.INN LEWIS THERE are five of the Perkins', in cluding Sally and "a hard lot. of boys to manage," old Mr. Howard remarked the morning I saw a sweet looking girl come out of the cottage across the way. "Yes, Sally has her hands full," he continued. "I wonder how she ljaa managed with, tie twins both down with the mumps and Bob in high school, but she i a trump and seems to keep tie ball rolling and the trous ers and stockings patohed and darned In good shape; and she is always doing something to jive th boys a good time. " , "Sally !s two year younger than Bob, but she gave up her chance, of an education and has sorimpad and saved to help 'him through school snd has been so cheerful through It all. Yes, she has a bit of fun'abont her, too, and I think that has something- to do with her success in keeping the-fsmily together.- It's a regular clubhouse for Rob's friends, and the boys all stand by Sally Perkins, , "I shall never forge. la.st April Fool's day. It does me good every time I think' of it." Mr. Howard laughed heartily, and I appreciated his story of how. Sally turned the tables. "It seems that Rob Perkins was full of good-natured mischief and one of those , boys that are always getting others into, scrapes. He was a great fellow for company and sometimes taxed Sallle's patience and the pantry to the extreme. He would say:' "O, Sally, I have asked George and Charlie to come over to-night. Do not go to any trouble, but get a light supper." And Sally would have to plan and contrive to have things really nice, for she had as much prid as Rob and wanted him to make as good a show ing in his home as the other boys couldj do; and the result was that both she and Rob were general favorites among the young people. It was Rob's laat year in high school, and as Sally-busied herself about hei work she was thinking' of what the future held in store for them all. Af ter Rob left home to teach, then came Jim,' but he had determined to go into the electrical business and would not finish school. : Sally had ambitions for the twins, and was .seriously thinking and planning for their welfare, when she was interrupted. "I think it's a'downright shsme, if it is Rob's crowd." The two 'little boys' had come into the kitchen and Sally looked up from the apple she was paring, and saw that they were really very serious. "What is it thst is such a shame?" she asked, going on with her pies. "Why, Rob and the other boys are going to play a mean joke on some of the girls to-morrow night You know there is to be a concert at the assemi bly rooms, and the boys have written invitations inviting them girls to at-? tend, and they had us kids deliver them. ,We overheard the plan, but did not dare to refuse to -take them, you know." V "Well, that is all very nice so far," and Sally half wished she had been in the invited party. It was a concert that she would like very much to at tend. "Yes, but they are not going to call for the girls at all, but send another lot of" notes with only 'April Fool' written oni a blank sheet. The boys say they are only getting even for snubs, but I don't believe any of them have been snubbed unless they needed it. They are a conceited lot, anyway." Sally reproved her small brother for making such an assertion, but she half smiled as she knew that she was near ly of the same opinion. ' "The fellows are all going to go to the concert and have a jolly time, 'stagging it, and for my part I can't see the iunny part of it," added one twin. Sally was thoughtful for a moment,, then her face liffhted with fur and she. said, "I'll turn the tables on these boys, and you will have to help me." Later in the evening, Rob came in whistling'. "Hello, Sally, give me a kiss.. You're the best girl in a thousand lands, and" "What's wantedvRob? You must be going- to ask a favor," she said, smil ingly. "Pshaw, I do mean it, Sally. But, say, could I hare tie fellows over to suppe to-morrow .night? We are. all going to the symphony, you know, You needn't make a spread, but get us Just a light supper." "Why, yes, Rob, that will be joHy and I think 'a light supper' will be nicest,' anyway, for you will probably want to take the girl out for a cup of coffee or a rarebit after tie concert." Rob smiled a very happy smile and said: "Youre all right, little girl, and I know sons one else who thinks so, too." Sally's cheeks grew , very pink, and Bob settled down to his Latin. Early the next morning-, the twins went on another round of calls, and carried dainty notes to the girls, in which Sally had fully explained the situation. And by afternoon the girls, including Sally, had tickets' for the concert and Jsad Arranged to meet at the assembly rooms at an early hour. Sally's plan was working-. She had sent the twins to spend the evening with a neighbor; Jim had gone into the country for thie night, and the way was clear for her to carry out her idea. The twins were permitted to assist in preparing the supper for the boys, and, their part was to go after the candlesticks, which the girls had offered for the occasion. . ; ' Sally's eyes sparkled as she spread the snowy table cloth and placed the silver at each plate, with a napkin and even a finger bowl on the side. In front of each plate stood a lighted candle, and in the center of the table Was a large candelabra with six candles. Standing by this was a large card with the following printed mes sage: ' 1 - 'V "Light Suppers For foolish duffers On All Fools' Eve." , Sa'lly 'made good her escape and met the boys on the way to the house. Rob looked amazed when he saw her, but she smiled reassuringly, and said: "I bad an invitation out to tea, boys, and I left a light supper on the table; you can Just help yourselves. I thought you might enjoy having a little party all by yourselves, you know."' The boys agreed that that would be the finest thing out, and Sally hurried on to meet the girls. w Rob was hilarious and opened the dining-room door with a grand flour ish, saying: "Hurrah, boys, I am as hungTy as a bear, and I " ' , Here he stopped short and a look of wonder and dismay came over his face., The" lighted candles had sur prised him, and in a moment he saw there was not a thing to eat on the table. One of the boys had espied the card and read it aloud to the others. Everyone laughed his hardest, but Rob. The joke was on' him, and he explained to the boys his; usual - re quest for a. 'light supper;' he felt mean that they; all siould have to suffer at his expense. He soon re gained his good nature, hawever and said: ''Well, we will make a raid on the pantry." - , " But to his chagrin, the door was securely locked, as was the base ment, and they were forced to go without their supper. ' George Madden said later: "Do you know, boys, I feel that perhaps we have gone too .far, and I propose that we go after the girls, after, all, and own up to thejeke and turn it all into a good time at the concert. We can probably get seats about the house, and if not, we can go over to Smith's and have a little supper to getier." What George sa,id usually carried weight and as it-was getting late they hurried away in separate direc tions, promising to meet at the as sembly rooms. ' One by one they arrived at the concert-, alone and with queer expres sions on their faces. For the .first time they associated Sally with the joke, and George Madden said to him self: ' "She is the nicest girl I ever knew, and I mean to know her bet ter." - The girls were all' together , in good seats and seemingly enjoying the mu sic to the fullest extent. The boys could not find seats, and as they were so late the ones for which they had tickets had been given to others, and they were obliged to stand. They talked matters over and decided to wait for tie girla and. , own them selves beaten in their own game, and propose that they all go out for sup per, as they had planned; but the girls had another idea and slipped through a side entrance, and the boys had the privilege of seeing them through the window of Winnie Ger ard's home, deep in the mystery of a chafing-dish concoction; and they felt very foolish and small, as was the appropriate way to feel on All Fools' eve.
