Meanwhile the typesetter has done H.s work: and before tho minute hand has had time to make more than a few trips around the clock's face circulars are sent broadcast over the face of the earth, giving one or more pictures of the fugi tive, a full description ntot only of his physical appearance, but also of th clothes he wore when last seen, the occu pation tlmt he Is likely to seek employ ment In or tho variety of graft he Is apt to ply and the class of associates he Is likely to flock with. International .Comity Broadcast over the earth Is no exag geration. Uvery police chief and consta ble In tho United States gets one. One 's sent to every American consul, and the consul passes the word along to tho proper local authorities.

How little It takes to arouse the Ubi quitous Individual Is shown by tho count less "tips" that pour In upon the police every tlmn a crime Is perpetrated that Is given newspaper space.

It Is usually found that old Mr. Suspicion Is running around on false trails, but often he finally lands on the right one, and the much wanted "straight tip" is received by tho police.

I am ft barber by trado so you can guess that I uaod pretty nearly everything on the map. But the trouble continued, to get worse, I had come to the point where from scratching my scalp my bead was covered with sores. Sleep was out of the question. "After reading about Outlcura I gave It a trial, and after I had used the Cuticura Soap and Ointment twice, my head ceased to itch, and in three week the sores were nearly gone. I had become bald, but after three months' use of Outlcura Soap and Ointment I have a full head of hair again.

Tho usual method Is to chango the style of wearing the hair, to shavo the face if It be adorned with whiskers, or to let whiskers sprout If It be smooth-shaven. These were the methods used by Dr. Cook In his well known vanishing act after, tho perpetra tion of his better known North polo hoax, and they served him fairly well. Hair dyes, wigs and face stains are sometimes used, but It must bo done with consummate skill or it will be found to be boomerangs. Almost Invariably tho style of clothos is changed. But here, too, the utmost caution must bo exercised.

On the eastern end of Long IbIiih.1 there may be seen old windmills. Tha curious may observe tSat there Is a tiny wlndmllle In many cases, perched on tho top opposite the great arms, a feature that suggests a pug dog's curled tall. Those who havo Investigated the mechanism of the wlniSmlll know that the littlo windmill Is tho Yankee method of automatically keeping the sails on the great arms always In the wind. As soon as the wind changes, It puts the small wheel In motion, and this quickly rolls the top of the tower nnd the big wheel around until It ngaln faces the wind, then, being Itself out of the wind, It stops. Whenever tho wind changes In Holland, hundreds of mlllkeepcrs come forth and laboriously turn the tops about by hand. They may bo econ pushing and straining on the galleries surround ing the towers midway between the ground and the top or tugging at the pokes of a wheel on the ground. Zaanland Is especially tho homo of the windmill, It lies to the north and west of Amsterdam, and every town or vil lage in this district begins or ends n "zaan " KaandlJIk. nccordlng to ono traveler, perpetually reminds one of the old query: "Do you see anything' greon?" Every thing In Kaundljlk Is green. Bridges, fences, doors, windows, walls are green, ranging from the green of peas to that of apples, olives, grass, malachite, beryl, old bottles and verdigris. ' It was at Zaanland, a town of this dis trict, that Peter tho Oreat learned the art of shipbuilding. In a little museum of this placo thero are shown many models of windmill, among which Is that of the first windmill erected In Kaandam. It stood In the water, and when It was desired to turn tho sails towards tho wind the miller was obliged to get Into' his boat and, taking a line, tow the wholo strueture around until it was In u working position again. Iater on the mill was set on a post and the whole turned about this as an axis. In the same manner thnt one revolves book she Ives. Then another method was de vised. Tho ehtlro edifice was turned about from tho bottom like, a monitor's turret. Finally, the comparatively mod ern type was adopted, that of a cap hold ing the axle and sails with a cog wheel and spindle Inside and easily moved from below by a hand wheel or windlass to se cure the proper frontage at will. The IyOrd of Voorst and the Over IJssel monastery were parties to a suit Involving the question as to who owned the wind and enjoyed the right "to em ploy It. The old feudal master asserted that Boreas and all the puffings of h'ls cheeks that frisked over the country were his. The bishop of Utrecht, to whom the suit was referred, decided (perhaps ho knew on which side his bread was buttered) that the crc-at lord When you visit tho show go boo tho cur of extra vtil uos 'amounting to hundreds of dollurs.
