The village authorities should see to it that children are not allowed to congre gate under the band stand nights when the band is giving a concert. There are quite a number in the band and their combined weight is more than the stand can well maintain. Should it go down sometime, the kids would meet with serious injury. Better make the stand solid, but all the same time keep children from under it. Leonard T.

Joseph Demanche of Morrisville was commenced Wednes day afternoon and the following jury was empanelled: Tracy Badger, Don Chapman. H. L. Fairbanks, Geo. L. Gile, W H Harris, E. R. Lilley, F. B. Noble, Chas Parker. J. C. Peck. E. W. Potter, Page Uflord and L. A. Wolcott. The panel in State v. Wells being still out the regular panel was soon exhaust ed, and Sheriff Town and his deputies were busy for some time calling tales men. Mate s Attorney Maurice, assisted by W. E. Tracy, prosecuted, and the re spondent was defended by F. G. Fleet wood and R W. Hulburd. The evidence of the State tended to show that Demanche and Mrs. Grace Grimes of Johnson attended the Barton Fair alone last summer, and stayed at a small hotel where they were seen by sev eral parties; after that time Demanche continued to visit Mrs. Grimes at John son, and until recently was at her house many times. The case went to the jury at noon Thursday, the respondent making no do fense but relying on the witnesses im proved by the state, among whom were several whose testimony showed the ad reputation of Mrs. Grimes. The jury came in shortly, after court came in Thursday afternoon and reported a ver dict of "guilty." At two o'clock Thursday afternoon Orange Wells was brought into court and sentenced for rape. His sentence was not less than seven or more than eight years in the State Prison at Wind sor. The criminal docket waa then called and the following disposition made of the remaining state cases: State v. Will Horner, State v. Barney McManus, State v. W. T. Burt, State v.

May, and Burt Lumber Co., v. Shaw and Horner. The first case was ready and a jury empannelled. The case is a suit by Geo. W. Brown of Morrisville against J. H. May of Burlington to recover a claimed amount due for a commission on the sale of a livery barn in Winootki to C. II. Prentiss. The defense claimed that the arrangement was that if Brown would sell the barn for $3000 that a commis sion of $100 would be paid, but that Brown instead of selling this barn to Prentiss sold him the livery in the Bedell stable at Morrisville and received his pay for same. When May learned that Brown waa selling other property than his to Prentisa and not acting under the ar rangement he notified Brown that the property waa taken out of hishanda and that nothing further would be done with him. Brown wanta hia money juat the aame. M. S. Vilas of Burlington and R.' W. Hulburd appeared for Brown, and V. A. Bullard and M. P. Maurice for May. The jury waa aa follows: F. I. Allen, C. S. Brenan, A. M. Carpenter, E. M. Da via, H. O. Fisher, O. L. Gale, H. S. Gates, E. M. Houston, II. G. Hutchins, E. R. Lilley and H. E. Pike. This case occupied the attention of court until Monday after noon when it went to the jury.

A zino mine next absorbed nay atten tion, The original is in Missouri, but a facsimilie has been arranged here with a part ef the earth removed to show the interior workings. The zino was found 15 feet below the surface and has contin ued down 200 feet or more in an enor mou8 deposit. In the excavating, big pillars of the zino have been left as sup. ports, worth about a million dollars. Tbese win eventually De Diasted away when the mine has been worked out, al lowing the earth to cave in. I learned a new kind of jack, father. It has to do with zino. One kind is known as ruby jack, occurring in red crystals, which look like rubies. There are also black jack and rosin jack. have likewise become acquainted with zino silicate, which is very curious in deed and more nearly resembles tripe than anything else that I can think of. If serious statistics appeal to you, I am now prepared to say that Missouri fur nishes a large proportion of the zinc in this countrv some years more than half. The next time you go by Tiffany's, fa ther, you may feel that I ban do the same thing here in California only that we shall be seeing vastly different things. Here it is chiefly uncut jewels, but they are so beautiful and interesting in their natural condition that one lingers in com plete absorption over the glass cases. With feminine frivolity I could hardly tear myself away from a piece of opal about twelve inches long and five or six Inches thick. Imagine how many orna ments, gleaming with elusive lights, that might be evolved from this one piece ! Al most as fascinating was a b uge slab of amethyst crystals from South America, and then there were wonderful specimens of sapphire from Ceylon, am ber from Roumania, silver and volcanio glass from Mexico, geodes of various sorts, striking lenses of the eyes of the giant cuttlefish, and agate-like sections of a mastodon's tooth. The varied Industries contains many beautiful and costly things: fabrics and furs; tapestries and rugs; china and wearing apparel; jewelry in artistic set tings. We began tiptoeing past connect ing rooms filled with chiua so fraeile that one instantly felt the responsibility of moving softly. A smiling attendant lowered the inevitable plush rope, and I accepted the invitation, but I grasped Joe firmly by the hand, that the damage might be as light as possible. They need not have printed any of those "Do Not Touch" signs for me; I feel no tempU tion to tab chances with a platter worth $30. They may sit on their respective tables for all of me. This does not mean, however, that I do not appreciate them. If I owned a home and a fat check book, I should be elad to empty the latter to fill up the former, and this would be a good place to begin. I don't know how to describe the varied beauties we saw here, but I lingered most loapingly over gold orna mented goblets with pink enamel, over plates with soft underglaze effect, over acid-etched vases covered with color in stead of gold. A paper pattern manufacturer has In stalled an attractive display of miniature uies, wearing smart dainty gowns that represent the latest notions in dress. Costumes are shown for every possible oocasion, and I never pass these long glass eases without finding them sur rounded by spectators. I can under stand why the overplump ladies should be drawn irresistibly to the slender, girl ish models, and it is only natural that all women should be interested, but it don't stop there. Sometimes I think it don't begin there: in other words, there are usually more men than women, standing spellbound before these tiny figures that might have stepped out of a fairy exist ence. It was on the Chinese day that I saw two shabby Chinamen standing here. They gazed a long time, and then simul taneously they turned toward each other and began chattering excitedly. I wish I might have known what they said. You would like to see the monster typewriter that I came across the other day. It is so big and funny that it makes you laugh as inevitably as looking in a big magnifying mirror. It is almost 2.000 times as large as the ordinary type writer, standing 15 feet high, and being 21 feet wide. It runs by electricity and weighs 14 tons. The paper required is nine feet wide and the key cups are seven inches in diameter. It is very diverting to watch this ponderous contrivance writing letters that can be read half a block away. I mustn't forget to tell you that the French exhibits have been recently un loaded from the Jason, which has bad a long, perilous trip and has finally reached here with invaluable treasures for the Exposition. I saw some of the exhibits being conducted with great ceremony. Guards marched in front, followed by a band playing martial airs; then came Ex position and French Commissioners on foot; and bringing up the rear were trucks loaded with packing cases, draped with Preach and American flags. It was one of tbe most impressive things imagin able I In a solema way America waa saying to France: "You are in trouble, but don't worry about the part of your self that you have sent to me. It shall have my protection." When we got back to the hotel this afternoon we found Mrs. Winwood there. Mrs. Drake and Alice were entertaining her; but when Jon and I entered tbe room there was a hush, and I knew that my protege had been under discission. Tbe Drakes still feel that I have been very much misled in keeping him, and the poor little fellow is opologetio in their presence. But Mrs. Winwood is different. She has tbe mother instinct, and Joe was at home with her at once. In no time at all he was standing in the circle of her arm, telling ber excitedly about all the small interests in his mind. "You seem to have adopted him", she said to me with a twlukle in ber eye. "No, ma'am, I 'dopted hei", explained Joe proudly. "Oh,did you, indeed?" responded Mis. Wingood with charming gravity. "Then perhaps you'll bring her to see me." "Sure I will", agreed Joe with more energy than elegance. "'Bout next Thursday." It was really arranged, thanks to Joe's impetuosity. My infatuation is as com plete as bis, but I might have managed more outward restraint. Inside, how ever, I am trying to curb my impatietice to have her talk with Mrs. Winwood in her own borne. That is the only setting that gives you a key to a person's char acter. V Here's my love to you, a great deal of it. Affectionately, Betty. BITS OF WISDOM.
