He took to his heels and. being a quick runner, reached the fort amid a shower of bullets, but the gates were shut, and the men inside wera so frighteued that they dared not open them. Finding himself shut out. Kay threw himself flat on the ground in the rear of a stump, and here, perhaps seven steps from the fort and within Bight of his mother, he lay for four hours, while the bullets of the Indians tore up the ground on either side of him. At last be grew impatient and called out to the garrison: "For heavn's sake, dig a hole under the cabin wall and take me in!" The men inside set to work imme diately. and the brave young hunter was speedily safe iuside the fort. FORTUNE ISLAND. The Story of the Buried Prize of ar* English Buccaneer. An English buccaneer, having looted and fired a rich prize, found himself pursued in Mini by a Spanish pirate, and in order to save his treasure sought some Isolated shore on which to bury it until the time came to divide the spoils with his followers. So he ran into the Mahaina group and. landing on a low lying strip of sand and palm trees. ca-hed his plunder and. naming the place Fortune Island, sailed away, fie left a number of negro slaves be hind to guard ihe buried treasure, and the present inhabitants are said to be descended from these slaves.

The substitution of concrete for wood, stone and brick as a paving material has extended to all sections of the United States. For example, the following improvements Hre re ported in a single day: Calvert, Tex., which boasts of be ing the cleanest, prettiest town In cen tral Texas, calls special attention to her cement sidewalks. Georgetown, Tex., recently laid four miles of con crete pavements. I'eoria, 111., is do ing extensive work In the same line Decatur. HI., has been putting down concrete pavements and curbing. El gin, III., has adopted ordinances com pelling the use of cement in sidewalk construction. Des Moines, la., is pav ing a public square. Little Rock, Ark., is using concrete blocks. Orange, N. J., recently decided that only con crete shall be used for pavements Springfield. Mo., has adopted the IIos sain concrete street pavement. These are just a few towns, some of them not important to the outside world, but the Improvements reported are characteristic of what is taking place everywhere, aud hundreds of thou sands of barrels of cement are used annually for this purpose where prao tlcally none was used a few years ago. After noting the durability of concrete pavements conies the conviction that the same material would make a good wall, time proof floors and sills, In destructible posts and steps, etc., and In a few years the supply of cement will need to be largely increased by the demand for It in small towus and rural communities. The little town of Newberry, Ind., with a population estimated at GOO, claims to have all the records in the state broken for extent of cement sidewalks in a town of its size. It has been Incorporated only a few months and now has two miles of cement walks completed and six more miles ordered for completion before winter. If cement walks are a good thing for part of the citizens, they are good for all, according to the reason ing of the town board, consequently not a street in the little town will escape a sidewalk on both sides. VALUE OF ROAD KEEPERS. Rational Plan For Repairing High ways at Little Cost. Several states in the United States have spent millions of dollars in build ing improved roads. All states spend vast sums every year In road making and repairing. And it is strange, but true, that a large proportion of all this money ts wasted. Improved roads, built at great cost, are systematically let alone until they become bad again, when there is a bowl about the repair bill. Ordinary roads are fixed up once a year and then neglected until the an uual repairing is due. The rational plan of having road keepers to take care of the roads all the time does not seem to have found favor anywhere in i."*' •H IMPllOVKD VAC S DAM ROAD. the United States, though It has long been in successful operation abroad. A little work at the right time will save a lot of It later on almost any road, yet we continue to follow the wasteful plan of waiting till the bill grows bigger. On all our improved roads men should be kept constantly at work, and the same is true of most ordiuary dirt roads. A couple of men and a team can care for quite a stretch of road and do it cheaper than the same road can be kept in repair by a spasmodic effort, often made by those who know little about roads.—National Stockman and Farmer. DEEP SEA WATER. Bottles With Which Sampies Are Taken From Ocean Depths The water bottle for getting water for analysis from selected depths in the ocean Is a cylinder of brass. Ger man silver or other metal which re sists the corrosion of sea water, gen erally about two Inches In diameter and twelve or fourteen Inches long, with upward opening valve at the top and bottom, connected together on a central stem. Lugs are east on the aide of the cylinder for conveniently securing It at any point along the length of the line by which it ts to be lowered Into the sea. During the lowering of the line the valves of the bottle are kept unsealed by the pas sage of the water through the cylin der during its descent, but when the motion is reversed the valves seat themselves and are locked by the de scent of a small propeller In the framework above the upper valve, which rides Idly on a sleeve during the lowering of the bottle, but descends along a screw thread to press the valves upon their seats when the line commences to be hauled up. A speci men of the water at the depth to which the water bottle has descended is thus brooghcyt surface confined wltfr- in the bottle, and a series of" spec! mens from different depths may be I obtained at one haul by securing a series of water bottles at the required intervals along the sounding line.— Seienttfle AmeHenn THE MAIL ORDER HOUSES. fhey Inoculate the Business of the Home Tradesman With Hookworm. If your business does not approach that of former seasons you may as fribe the reason to the unprecedented season, the curtailment of crops, the mail order houses or a varied assort ment of conditions, all obtaining "out Side" of your store. It Is not uncommon to find In almost any town at any season a merchant who complains of "poor" business, while just across the street or around the corner his competitor will tell you that business Is "tine" and the pros pects excellent for a splendid season. These everyday occurrences call forth the suggestion that possibly the complaining merchants are It ing in Notice of Levy Summons. affected with a •business hookworm" which causes them to view everything through dark glasses. Why should there be pessimists and optimists sell ing merchandise side by side on the same street In the same town? If ex isting conditions are favorable for a ''tine" business for tile one merchant, how is that business ••gloom" per vades the store of the other. The trouble will be found ou the "Inside" and not on the "outside" of his store. There Is a "business hookworm" lurk Koine or all of the departments of the establishment. The scientists tell us the effect of the hookworm on the person, and the complaining mer chant's business seems to be affected in a similar manner. If you want to get rid of the busi ness hookworm the remedy Is as sim ple as that for the physical hookworm. Try a liberal dose of newspaper adver tising space, intelligently administered, and you'll find that the feeling of slothfnlness will be supplanted by that lively feeling which makes you happy. SUCCESSFUL MERCHANTS. Th«W That Carry Only Diversified Lines In Stock. An editorial article in the Agricultur al Southwest, which upholds the gen eral store in the smaller cities and towns as against the specialized busi ness. contains a hint for those who would compete successfully with the bl£ mai] order store that carry every thing. from a hairpin to a ftortabTe house. The editor writes: One of our eastern exchanges de votes a whole column of bis valued paper to an article on the mistake that the present day merchant is mak ing in running a general store. This article endeavors to show that the old rule of "no two things can be done at the same time and done right." Using this old rule in bearing out his a-^ument that where any mer chant tr'es to handle a multiplicity of lines he vannot make a success of any one, we do not in the least doubt the sincerity of his belief. At one time in the not distant past we were of the same opinion, until we had our ideas changed by first hand knowledge. The most successful merchants of the southwest, with the best conducted stores, bringing to their owners the greatest margin of profit, are those who have diversified lines. In fact, the merchant who sells everything, from a needle to a traction engine, is the one who broadens, and when the call of the big town reaches him he is qualified to go Into the fight against his longer established competitor and get a share of that business which his all around knowledge has taught tills how to talk about and handle. Town Improvement Mottoes. There Is common sense lu spending your money in the community where you live. The best method in which a town can pave its way to success ts to pave its streets aud Improve the highways leading therefrom. The women of many small towns have formed a local floral association and are introducing plant and flower culture into many homes. A number of town officials are co operating with the citizens of the town in the planting of shade trees on all the leading streets of villages. It Is the poorest sort of economy to have bad sidewalks There are many cases on record where the amount paid as the result of accidents amounted to more than enough to put the walks In good shape. Any town can well afford to bond itself for sidewalk repairs. What We Spend on Hoads. The United States spends $90.()00.00n annually on 2..r00.000 miles of roads: England spends $80.* 10.000 on her lfiO.OOO miles each year, or fourteen times as much as this magnificent country commonly referred to as the grandest country on the face of the globe.
