Hamman business man, capitalist and joker of Orleans was in the city Tuesday and remarked on the Madam Barlow By GEORGE ADAMS The Eyrie was well named. The pinnacle of ledge on which the cottage was perched was well-nigh inaccessible; quit bo. In fact, except by way of the picturesque little foot path that crept up to It from the group of summer houses clustered on the brow on the beach around Its feet a few hundred yards below. Midsummer was at hand and the Eyrie the center of attraction to every summer young man at Spur wlnk Cliffs. It had been so since the barge running semi-daily from the sta tion three miles away had deposited an even half-dozen delectable summer girls at the foot of Eyrie Path late one afternoon three weeks prior to the opening of the story. Several impetuous youths more eager than wise scrambled up the narrow footway, the morning after the arrival, with the expectation of catch ing a glimpse of the newcomers, and incidentally precipitating an introduc tion; but not only were the young ladies invisible; they found, much to their surprise, a corpulent, middle aged dignified female sitting in the window that held the path, and In tently reading.

They met last night and went over the long list of slogans sent in and decided that more time should be given as the majority of them were loo long, as the slogan should be not more than six or eight words at the most including.

On being asked what kind of a factory fcthey were building he said t was for the manufacture of glass eyes for blind pigs. The board of Sujiervisors convened Monday at Ionia and made the ollicial count of the election returns relating to the local option issue and found there were 5000 yotes yes and 3075 votes no, a majority of 1385 in favor of local op tion. Have No Blind Pigs On the first day of May the thirty two saloons in Ionia county will close their doors and the people will face the proposition of enforcing the law they have voted into efl'ect. The fight is only begun when the saloons are voted out. The problem is to make con ditions actually better under local option than with the open rumshop. The saloon interests argued before elec tion that the blind-tiger and the whisky drug stores were worse than the saloon. Nobody came foward to deny the statement. We must see to it that there are no blind-tigers and no whisky drug stores. The vote cast last Monday leaves no room for doubt about the sentiment of the voters of this county Portland Observer. The Difference What is the difference between high grade and low grade baking powders? Ml baking tiowuers are white and are sold in round cans with bright labels. They look alike, but in contents they are very different. High grade baking iiowders are made oi purecream of tartar derived from grains. They are healthful and economical to use. Low-grade baking powders are made of alum an astringent mineral acid. Before the l'ure rood Law only a chemist could tell by analysis one from the other. Hut now baking powder have the ingredients printed on the back of the label. By reading the label the housekeeper knows the ingredients and being careful of the welfare of her household, avoids the Alum kind of baking powder Good baking powder is one of the most useful things in they kitchen and there is a dillerence.

Swelling Her All Up. Paris judge tells a lady all about herself Juet before sending her up' for manslaughter. He said, in part: "You are a female Apache. You re celred as many stabs of the knife as you gave, and as many revolver shots as you fired. Two years ago a dagger was plunged Into you by your lover, and the wonder is that you survived. 'Last year another lover blew out your eye with a revolver. How you survived this Is also a mystery. You paid this savage lover back by stab bing him durine sleeD. He was sent to the hospital, and almost miraculous ly recovered." Outside of that she was probably a great kid. Birthdays and Health. For several years I have noticed that in a period of from about three to two weeks preceding the anniver sary of my birth I have had a feeling of returning vigor, a renewal of tl tallty such as I have not experienced at any other time of the year. This has lasted for from two to eight days, but has always ceased some days be fore the anniversary. Hence It has occurred to me that there may be some connecljon between the approach of the recurrence of one's blrthdate and the maintenance of one's health. Letter in London Graphic. into town right under the eyes of the summer colony puzzled the young men as much as her presence cha grined them, for they had already en tertained visions of unlimited good times with a bevy of unchaperoned summer girls. "No fun up here, boys; let's watch out for the girls around the rocks and the beach; that old lady won't get far from camp with all her avoirdupois and this hill in the proposition, too, you may mark my words." and Billy Matthews ordered his squad to "right about face" and retreat. The story of the safely-guarded Ey rie soon spread through the little com munity and various tactics were de vised by the boys to lure the new girls into the holiday life of this par ilcular half-dozen summer young men. The soheme all proved more or less successful, for it transpired as Billy Matthews had predicted; the duenna. Madam Harlow, as she soon came to be facetiously called never did attempt the difficult path Nevertheless, all hints to the girls for an invitation to call at the Eyrie were lenored by them and every at tempt made by the ardent "half-dozen" fn otoal nn nnlnvlte1 resulted in COI1- frontine the obsequious Madam Bar low with the Inevitable book in hand In the watch tower, as the window or.-. in Via rlipd and Dast which no welcoming nod ever encouraged them The elrls Droved every on as enuc incr a. tv,o first Bleht of them had nromlsed. and if one by one they even tually eluded the ferret eyes of the madam and stole an hour singly or in groups on the rocks, or for a stroll in the moonlight, or a dip in the surf with these euually charming young mon If U certain no one troubled ahon't It. and all the cottagers encour acrori it from mire love of mischief, RPPmtnelv. for the exclusive "madam had. hv medium of her young flock. absolutely declined all overtures of hospitality extended either to herself or the young ladles by the friendly dls mttiiPPrR nt the foot of her nath.

The women, taking their tea by the club window, talked. "They have a girl prompter at the Garrick theater," said one. "The man ager told me last night that he'll have none but women prompters after this. Their fine, clear voices carry so beau tifully across the stage, while at the same time they are quite Inaudible in the auditorium." "Of course," said another. "In teach ing living languages, too, a woman U Incomparably better than a man. A man has a thick guttural voice. Ills words are all mumbled and Jumbled. But a woman's clear delivery her open voice gives every syllable its Just value. In studying French or Ger man or Italian, choose a woman, and your progress will be easier and faster." "Norwegian horses," said a third woman, are at once spirited and gen tle. Do you know why? Because it is the women, the farm women, who break them. They make pets of them first; the colts feed from "their hands and follow them about like dogs. After that their breaking is easy. It is only done by kindness. And the result Is that Norwegian horses have the best dispositions in the world." A fourth woman settled the whole matter. Aa mental power ousts muscular power, she said, "woman, save in such Irremediably brutal vocations as sur gery or pig-sticking, will supersede man all along the line." I The f of Why Streams Are Disappearing. Anyone who has reached the age of 75 has noticed the disappearance of the small brooks where he played in his district school days, while larger ones have shrunk to summer threads, and rivers that filled their banks all the year are hardly more than rlvu lets In summer. Commissioner Whip ple of New York state tells up that the upper Hudson, in August of 1907, had no more than two Inches of water where it used to roll a heavy volume There is substantial agreement that this change han been due to the denu dation of our bills and valleys of the water-holding trees. It takes a cen tury to grow such forests as we found covering the continent; it has taken half a century to destroy them. The Independent. The Bread and Pipe Baker. The lecturer at the cooking school sometimes enlivened her remarks with an anecdote. "The eighteenth century baker," she said, "was a pipe-cleaner as well, just as the barber a little earlier was a sur geon. I "Everybody In those days smoked clay pipes, provided, the same as cups or spoons, by the coffee houses. Well, each morning a waiter carried his master s stock of pipes some hun dred perhaps to the nearest bakery The baker would boll them out. then dip them in. liquid lime, then bake them dry. Tley came out of the oven as sweet and white as new."
