It is well known that Climax Jim has taken lodgings there fcr the time being and that Climax is there for cattle stealing. It is also well known that Climax is occasionally piously in clined and is very desirous of having t hose prayed for who need it. Only a few days ago a minister who wants to save all souls, visited the county jail, distributed some literature and preached a good sermon, then think ing that some of the inmates needed something more asked if any one wanted to be prayed for. Just about that time the prisoner's din ner was brought in . Climax viewed it with a solemn countenance, then said: "Say parson, if you don't think you'll get downed for it, I wish you would pray for the woman who sent this grub," but the parson didn't pray. "Huudreds of persons contend that the twentieth century will be gin with January 1, 1900, while other hundreds contend with equal pofi tiveness that the correct datéis Jan uary 1, 1901,"' writes Edward Bok in the October Ladies' Home Journal. "The 1900 contingent argue that, of course, that the new century begins with its numeral date, and go on to figure out very deftly that with the last day of the year 1899 the hun dred years will have run their course. They argue that if the first year ended with December 31 of the year one, the nineteen hundredth year must, of course, end with December 31, 1899, and that the first day of January, 1900, is, therefore, the first day of the new century. And, curiously enough, this latter figure is correct, but only in a numeral sense. These statisticians overlook one very important fact, however: that it requires one hundred years to make a century, and it calls for no expert mathematician to figure it out that the full hundred years of the nineteenth century wil not have run their course until twelve o'clock midnight of the thirty-first of December, 1900, Numerically, we enter the twentieth century with January 1, 1900. But, nevertheless, we must complete that entire year of 1900, and go thnough its three hundred and sixty-five days, before the actual nineteen hundred years shall have run their course." j T. S.
