SONG WAS POTENT WEAPON Sweet(!) Sounds Made by British Filer More Than Jungle Beasts Were Willing to Face. TJeiif. O. Onrrood of thp Roynl Fly Inj corps, who tin reached Cpe Tow n nfter some terrible experiences In Bast Afrlon. tells a strange story of Ills lid ventures. He went to bomb n German ambush on the nnflJI river, bat had to come lown In n hush, breaking his propeller 1 and landing In n bog. It was four I days before lie found lifK wny through a region Infested with wild animals gad was rescued by natives. He had covered about a mile when he was con fronted by an Ugly black animal with vicious tusks. It was dusk and he climbed a tree to pass the night. "I ope 1 my eyes," lie writes, "and saw something like two green elec tric bulbs about SO feet from tny tree. I'liey moved in a circle, and for 45 minutes my eyes never left them. The tension was unbearable. I want ed to scream, but instead I burst out with 'The Admiral's llrooui.' and in n full-throated bass I rolled out the three verses. No applause, but a re ward the leopard slunk away. I went through my repertoire. I laughed as I finished 'Two Kyes of Gray.' It seemed so ridiculous. "Then I got on two hymns, remera oered four verses of '0 God, Our Help In Ages I'ast,' nnd snug the amen, too." After this the lieutenant started his big trek, narrowly escaping crocodiles, nnd swimming seven or eight rivers. His only meuns of tf'fense wus his nail scissors.

UNITED TO BANISH GLOOM EnQllsh Business Men Form Assocla. tlon in Which Only Smlllno) Faces Are Welcome. Brighton men who travel to London every day to business hnve formed a "traveling colony of good cheer." "Some of us grew so tired of travel ing with stiff, unsmiling faces," Mr JTohnson. p. London merchant, told a reporter, "that we determined to ad inlt to our compartment only thoso with cheerful faces. "Smile! "We hae two placards, one for each window of the compartment. On these the trnveler rends : " 'Only those who nre cheerful trnv el In this compartment. If you can not smile you will he out of place.' "It has been very effective, '.Mini faces appear, read the notice nnd, wedded to gloom and distrusting cheerful cniniuinv. pass on and enter nnother carriage. All the cheerful spirits come to our compartment and f.irm tin. lolllest traveling colony ever known." Continental Edition of Lon lon Mail. Samoans Want Hard Candy. With a total population of 81.000 In western Samoa, of which less than 1, 000 are whites or half-castes, the de mand In confectionery Is mainly for hard candies, better known loenlly as holled lollies, retailing at 25 cents n pound. These are small varieties, dif fering In color and flavor, nnd Import ed In five-pound tins. Lozenges are little known. Taffies nnd chocolates suffer from the extreme humidity of the climate, which makes necessary their being Imported In sealed metal tins, retailing at from 50 to 75 cents a pound. Colored Driver Didn't Walt to Sec Who It Was That Had a Desire for Him. While visiting In Nashville. Tenn my ventriloquist son and I hired m car and driver for a sightseeing tour, writes n correspondent. In leaving the city we passed a private cemetery where the gravestones were close to the road, nnd 1 noticed that our driv er put on speed and rolled Ills eyes toward the spooky-looking plot. I was startled myself to hear an un earthly groan come seemingly from beneath the nearest stone, but turned In time to watch my son grinning be fore the colored driver put on a burst ol speed that nearly threw us out. Then came another groan that seemed to come from the seat next the driver, and a deep voice that said: "Hoy, I want you. That was Just before we went over an embankment, and our driver lit run ning In the road. It was an hour after he disappeared In the distance before we caught a ride back to the city. Thorough Washing of Exposed Parts Is Recommended by the American Forestry Association. CLASSIFIED MIGHT TRY THE TOY SHOP Certainly Youthful Swain's Inr.ome Didn't Run to Anything In Gold or Diamond Line. A flashily dressed, effeminate young man entered a Jeweler's shop, nnd In glib speech Informed one of the Im maculate assistants that he wished to purchase n birthday present for his sweetheart. No, he remarked, he hndn't any Idea as to what ie really wanted, but what ever It might be. he declared emphati cally, It must be a suitable token of hlii esteem, and at the same time come Within the possibilities of his Income. "And what," inquired the assistant, "If I may ask the question, is your In come?" "Fifteen dollars a week," was the prompt reply. "In that case," remarked the dis penser of gold and diamonds. In his most suave nnd charming voice, "I'm afraid you've come to the wrong place; you're more likely to he suited at the toy whop around the corner." create . long run to The Real Reason. When It was proposed to more public offices, the massi suffering though they were, In growl ominously, "Hut," they expostulated, "there is no work for more office holders to do !" Which proved beyond the perndven Hire of a doubt that the masses were Just as stupid and unreasoning as the politicians believed them to be; for any one with even n modicum of Intel ligence should have learned by this time that office holders do not care for work all they want Is tlte salary. Kansas City Star. Two Birds With One Stone. A little fellow sat on 0 doorstep crying bitterly. Pnssershy tried to con sole him. but .without avail. Presently n sympathetic old lady came along. "What's the matter, little one?" she asked. "Got my new trousers covered with tlust," sobbed the boy. "Rut they're clean now, dear," con tinued the lady. "I know they nre." wntled the lad. "Then why do you cry, child?" " 'Cos mother wouldn't let me take 'em off when she heat the dust out." Took Throne From Sister. It Is not generally known that the IcitiL' of Spain succeeded not his fa ther, but his sister, the Infanta Mer cedes, who was, though only six years old. queen of Spain from the death of her father. Alfonso XII, to the birth of the present king. Altogether she reigned ltio days, probably the short est relsm on record. The Sntle law, which bars females from the accession to a throne, does not operate In Spain, and until the sex of Alfonso Nil's posthumous child was determined, the eldest of his two daughters automat ical!) succeeded him. This Is the time of year when the poison Ivy cases begin to reach for a record as people get out Into the open and explore the wonders of nature, says the American Forestry associa tion. But poison Ivy Is not a thing to he fooled with and the association points out that soap and hot water In wholesale applications comprise the best measure of relief. The poison, nfter being deposited In the skin, requires some time to penetrate, and if this penetration 1in lie prevented by thorough washing, eruption and Irritation will not result, perfect. While exposed parts should be 851 W., I cleansed in this manner as soon after Maryland exposure as possible, it Is worth while to make the attempt even 12 or 20 hours afterward in the hope that at least a portion of the poison may be removed. A heavy Inther should be produced and the washing should be continued several minutes. Severe scrubbing with a brush is not advisa ble, but several swabs or small com presses of gauge may be used, dis carding ench In turn. poison may not be distributed by the cloth. Bathing with alcohol diluted with tin equal amount of water Is also an effective preventive. Where exposure has been more general, a bath for the entire body, followed by n change of clothing Is good preventive measure. The hair should not he neglected. Bathing, If not accompanied by suffi cient changing of water or rinsing, inuy result In spreading the rash to skin that had not been Infected. In cases that nre at nil serious a physi cian should be consulted. Scores of remedies and prescrip tions nre more or less In popular fa vor, the American Forestry associa tion says, hut In spite of the claims they assert that no specific treatment for poisoning from ivy and sumac Is yet available. Ointments should not be used In the acute stage of the dis ease. In the later stages, however, soothing and astringent olntmVnts may be of value In allaying Irritation and hastening cure. The extent to which It Is desirable to use solutions of per manganate of potash, hyposulphite of soda, sulphate of salts) nnd other remedies, Is also dis cussed. Migar ot lead, formerly much used, often proves disappointing if ap plied after Inflammation has devel oped, and the user runs the risk of lend poisoning If this substance Is n plied extensively. line lint.

A little girl went Into the grocer's shop In a breathless hurry one day. "Please. Mr. Brown," said she po litely, "will you change any eggs that Rre not good?"
