The party were all seated on the front porch discussing different question!, when suddenly Jack, the mayor's five-year old son, appeared from the hallway clad only In the garb nature had provided.

Tho story of the boy who was ex hibited throughout Scotland as a gen uine Irish leprechaun leads one to ask what exactly a leprechaun Is, for, of course, each variety of fairy has its special characteristics. The lepre chaun Is peculiar to Ireland, and Is In the form of a little old man, by profession a maker of brogues. He is only discovered by the sound oi the hammering of his brogues, and any one capturing him can Induce him by threats to reveal where his wealth is hidden. But no one yet has laid hands on that wealth, for if you take your eye off the leprechaun for as much as a second he has the power of vanishing, however tight you may hold him. And his ingenuity In mak ing you glance away Is always suc cessful. Only once did that ingenuity fail, and even then the treasure escaped unpillaged. A careful peasant, proof against all temptations, kept his eye on the little brogue maker until the money was revealed In a. field of rag wort. But he had no bag. So he tied his garter round the particular plant under which the money was hid, and went to fetch one, only to find on his return that every ragwort In the field was adorned with a red garter. CRUST COVERED BOY'S HEAD Bolton, Ga. "fy little boy's head was covered with a hard thick crust which cracked with the least pressure causing a discharge of bloody corrup tion which was bo offensive that I could hardly hold him. He was very cross. Some called It milk crust, another running tetter and another ec zema. "After trying -several patent medi cines I decided to try Cutlcura Soap and Ointment. After using the sample I purchased some Cutlcura Soap and a box of Cutlcura Ointment. After us ing Cuticura Soap and Ointment three days I wus able to remove all the crust and in one week he was entirely cured. Cuticura Soap and Ointment also cured my baby of an ulcerated sore behind her ear and now we think we cannot keep house without them." (Signed) Mrs. Charles Poss, Nov. 5, 1912.

Safe to Say Hawk Achieved No Pop ularity Through HI Appear ance on Golf Link. After making a long Bhot from the tee on the Hackensack golf links, H. O. Yerkes watched the ball as it Bped through the air. It was one of those drives which the average player thinks that he ought to make all the time. Mr. Yerkes had not bargained for in terference with the ball, and he was amazed to see a big hawk follow the white speck. When the ball fell to the fair green the hawk was seen to alight on It and carry It away. Mr. Yerkes was dumfou'nded, as was also his op ponent, George W. Lyle. But even they had not bargained on evil Inten tions of the bird. Therefore, they were still more surprised when the hawk dropped the ball farther down the fair green, but in a very bad spot In a bunker. Mr. Yerkes was dis pleased that such a Une drive had been spoiled, and his friend was somewhat gratified. Mr. Yerkes thought he ought to be permitted to put the ball back where It landed before "the bird picked it up, but Mr. Lyle declared that he thought his opponent ought to let bis ball lie where It was and count an extra shot. However, It was determined that it was a rub of the green, and Mr. Yerkes took more than one to get out of the bunker.

What is perhaps the most remark able accident that ever occurred was reported last month from Germany, according to Leslie's Magazine. A large touring car was traveling at fair speed along a boulevard lined with trees. Large flocks of sparrows were in, the trees and several boys were taking chances of being arrested by tho police by shooting at the birds with sling shots. One pebble, particu larly well aimed, struck a sparrow on the upper wing and Bent him gliding through the air directly toward the driver of the car; the bird struck him full In the face, and in the next in stant things began to happen. The driver clutched at his eyes, the car lurched into the ditch, knocking down a telegraph pole, vaulted to a plowed field on the other side of the ditch and went full force into a huge hay stack. l. -spite this wild swerve no one was even scratched except the driver, whose eyesight was damaged by the claws of the sparrow.
