It is only necessary to cite one case to prove that Judge O'Rear has not a sincere bone in his body. Take his humiliating surrender to Senator Bradley as iN. an example. In a speech at Lexington before the Republican State Convention met he did not hesitate to charge that the "third house" was guilty of corruptly influencing the election of United States Senator. He did not mention Bradley's name, but every body knew he meant Governor Bradley, and it is a matter within the knowledge of a number of people that Bradley called Judge O'Rear to account for making V. the accusation. When the Re- T publican Convention met and ?ll Bradley's wide popularity with 7I SJS Republicans was shown, as it is sis always shown in state conven ts 7K tions, Judge O'Rear saw the ne- IN cessity of placating the real lead- IN er, and did it m a way that re- in flected both on his courage and ST his sincerity.

" P: " ", - ,..... .. , Ten Pairs a Year. The shops and booths of Japan are of jnfailiug interest. Here the greengrocer and fruit seller has arranged his wares till it seems as though one looked upon a great bouquet. There the flower shop blazes in brilliance and the lantern maker squats at his multicolored task. At the next entrance we perhaps see a man severing chicken meat from the boue, and he performs the operation as skillfully as the surgeon with his dissecting knife. Beef and chicken are commonly sold in this fashion. Two or three paces farther on one is confronted with a typical Japanese shoe store. All tho footwear of the little brown man is here on view. The geta (wooden clogs) and straw sandals are indeed a fanciful exhibition. They line the benches, the floors, the shelves. They hang from above and seemingly are everywhere, allowing the seller just about enough room to squat on his mat. The newcomer is at once startled at the immense quantity of this simple footwear and the many places where it is sold, but he soon finds a solution to his query when he hears that a Japanese man annually makes away with from eight to ten pairs.

Rape and Rye Furnish Excellent Fall Forage, Clover pastures, which are much tho aiost common of the hog pastures in the ?orn belt, furnish very large amounts of excellent forage during part of the season. They can be used fairly early In the spring and continue growing until per! aps in July, when the weather becomes hot and dry, when they are very likely to cease growth and become so woody and hard that hogs will not readily eat the clover. Farm-r- s should guard against this condition by providing some different green feed for late summer and autumn. There are several crops which may be planted for late summer pasture which will furnish fresh succulent green feed for all seasons of the year.-Onof the most valuable of these is cape. This may be sown broadcast In the cornfields at the last cultivation at the rate of three to five pounds of seed per acre and by early autumn will have made a growth to furnish pasture of an excellent quality. Rye is another crop the possibilities of which are greatly neglected. If sown late In the summer or early fall it will grow up so that it may be pastured late in the fall and during the winter, will furnish a lot of feed In the spring and still produce a grain crop the following summer. Millet, Kaffir corn and the various varieties of sorghum can also be used for this purpose with excellent results. There Is no section of the country which Is adapted to hog raising which will not produce some of these pasture crops so necessary to the economical growing of hogs as well as to the greatest growth and flesh development of the animals.

In the days when the late archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Frederick Temple, was master of Rugby he sentenced to expulsion a boy who was innocent of the offense charged against him, but who could not clear himself without exposing the real offender. The lad made up his mind to bear the punishment and wrote to his father saying that he was sure his family would rather have him expelled than know him to ie a sneak. The father promptly sent the letter to Dr. Temple, calling attention to a postscript in which the boy said he wished the doctor to understand the matter and added, "Temple isa beast, but he is a just beast." It Is on record that Temple did understand, and the boy was not expelled. Dr. Temple, grim old man that he was, was always proud of the title "a just beast" A Other sizes at same proportion Cultivators Two HorselWalking $15.50 and $16.00 Two Horse Riding $25.00 and $27.00 Our Cultivators are the best made.

A number of the larger banking institutions employ from one to half a dozen men whose sole duty is to examine every check that comes in through the clearing house and vouch for the genuineness of the signatures. To the ordinary citizen it seems nothing short of marvelous that a signature clerk will instantly recognize the slightest alteration in a signature, with thousands of checks passing through his hands each day, many of them drawn by depositors who sign but a few checks in the course of a year, but an expert signature clerk can carry in his mind accurate photographs of 5,000 or more signatures and rarely has to refer to the signature book. When not engaged with the incoming checks the signature expert spends his time in familiarizing himself with the signatures of new customers. There is no room for uncertainty In his business, for if he passes a bogus draft it will mean a bad mark against him when promotions are In order, and to refuse pay- ment on a genuine check means a very wrathful customer. The signature clerk is also required to eee that no checks are post dated and to look for checks on which pay' ment has been stopped. In proportion to the number of checks paid by a large bank every business day the smallness of the number of bad ones that slip through la nothing short of marvelous. Harper's Weekly. BASEBALL Their Methods. A full grown wild duck is one of the most wcy of all animals, and many are the devices of hunters In various parts of the world to kill or to capture it. There is one method of taking wild 'ducks in considerable numbers practiced in China and elsewhere in the east which is sufficiently unknown .to occidentals to prove of interest. The natives see that a large number of big calabashes, or gourds, shall always be left floating on the water fre quented by the birds till they come ro regard them as part and parcel of their resorts. The duck- hunter chooses his time, and. putting one of the calabashes, with holes cut for his mouth and eyes, upon his head, he wades through the lake, taking care to keep the whole of his body beneath the surface. He cautiously approaches thp unsuspecting wild fowl and, catching one of them by the leg, pulls him with a sudden jerk beneath the water, causing hardly more commotion of the surface than the duck itself when it dives or splashes or plunges for its food. He j wrings its neck under the water and . Then he deals i fastens it to his be11-' with another and another in the same fashion till he makes his retreat, equally unnoticed, with a whole gir dleful of captured wild ducks around his waist.

The greatest difficulty in building up ball teams in this day, when the game has become a business as well as a sport, is in securing what we know as "thinking ball players." There are any number of ball players in the minor leagues who have natural physical ability, but it is very rarely possible to secure men who have that peculiar faculty of being able to think and act simultaneously. It is no reflection on a ball player's general intelligence to say that he hasn't that quality. I know scores of players who are men of unusual in- tellect, but who are lacking in that ability to think and act at the same time. Give them a few minutes to consider a problem, and they will arrive at a conclusion that is quite logical, but baseball games are not won on logic. The plays that win are usually the result of impulse. It is instinct with some ball players to make the proper play at the proper time. It would be possible to count on the fingers of the two hands the men In the league who are "quick thinking ball players." The team that is blessed with a majority of that class of players is the one that usually wins the championship. A team must have at least two thinking ball players to be a contender, and if it has lour tne champlonship is In sight. John J. in the Metropolitan. Mc-Graw w'" Mt4 Pres. $ fr"O0 J.

The strength of the spider and of the materials it employs is something almost incomprehensible when the size of the insect and the thickness of its thread are taken into account.

Taylor in his "Anthropology" says: "Language Is one branch of the great art of sign making or sign choosing, and' its business is to hit upon some sound as a suitable sign or symbol for each thought. Whenever a sound has been thus chosen there was no doubt a reason for the choice, but it did not follow that each language should choose the same sound." Thus we have the root explanation of the great, puzzle of diversity of language. Originally a matter of sound, language varies with the thing by which it is suggested, and hence the babel of tongues found in our human speech. It was often remarked by the rela- Fossil remains of prehistoric animals would not have been preserved and handed down to us through all the ages had these remains been exposed to the air. Fortunately for the scientists of today, when these animals perished the rock which holds their remains was merely soft mud or drifting sand. It encompassed the carcass of the animal, held it tight from air and water and during the intervening ages passed through the various processes until it became solid rock. Some of these remains, even those of the oldest animals, have been dls- covered quite close to the surface. This is because the crust of the earth is like a paper wrapping, folding and crumbling under the pressure of the gases and fire of the Interior, with the result that here and there the crust has j been turned upside down, so that the I lower strata of rock are on top. And it is the particular stratum of rock that reveals the approximate age of the animal.

Jamstown, : Kentucky, Bending of Great Guns. Among the problems with which ar--1 my and navy engineers have to deal j nowadays is that of the drooping of the muzzles of excessively long guns under the stress of their own weight. Experiments have shown that wire wound guns of twelve inch caliber and fifty feet length droop at the muzzle about four and a half minutes of arc, while built up solid guns of the same size droop about two and a half min utes. Differences of temperature in the body of the gun also cause bend- ings, which may either increase droop at the muzzle or counteract according as it is the upper or part of the gun that has the higher temperature. In consequence of these distortions projectiles on leaving a gun have a wabbly motion, continuing up to 500 yards, and probably more.
