It is nob within our power to do justice to each participant of the music department, as each and every one seemed to reach the height of perfection, and showed both talent and training of superior order. The expression pupils dlso measured up to the high expectation of teacher and audience, and each reader was encored repeatedly by the audience. The vocal numbers by Miss Myrtle Sageser were rendered faultlessly, and much enjoyed by all who were fortunate enough to hear her. The following Tuesday was a musical recital given by the advanced pupils of Miss Crockett's class, and it was voted by all present to be one of the very best of that nature ever giyen there. Miss Crockett is a lady of rare musical talent, and has a most pleasing way of imparting her knowledge to her pupils, and the members of her present class are advancing rapidly as was plainly showed Tuesday evening. , On Wednesday evening the pupils of the expression department under the direction of Miss Shannon entertained a large audience with two very interesting and high class plays. The first on the program was the bright, catchy little play entitled, "A Box of Monkeys." and was charmingly presented by Misses Elizabeth Lane, the "admirer of. rank," Leontine Leachmau, the typical American girl, Ollie Crockett, the English girl who desired to know "slang", and Messrs. William Hudson, the wealthy American boy disguised as a butler and Will Diddle, his partner. The other play on the program was "The Elopement of Ellen," and was faultlessly given by Miss Mabel Hind-ma- n and Layton Barnes as the young married ctuple of two weeks who still remembered that "they had been young,"Mollie Flowers and Adair Hodges, whose true love for each other did not run smoothly," Nathaniel Aaron, the absent minded minister and Arvest Hill who eloped with El len, Miss Myrtle Sageser.

T. Studley. The author's first attempt against the caribou iJfesulted In humiliation. He tells that Johnny, his Indian guide, suddenly dropped like a stone into the wet grass and muttered "Stag,' and there, sure enough, strolling along the front was a fine caribou. "I sat down", resting my elbow on my knee, waiting until he should put in an appearance my side of the rock. I had the rifle to my shoulder, and at last the grand beast walked Into view, not more than 100 yards away. He stopped, looking about him. and I drew a bead on his shoulder. Useless! The rifle wabbled all over the place, and for the life of me J could not keep It still nor hold my breath. My heart was In my mouth, and all the time the rifle trembled and shook. The caribou moved on a few paces, and I determined that If I meant to shoot at all I must obtain better control of my nerves. I still covered him with the sights, or thought I was doing so, as I pulled the trigger on the beast that was standing broadside on with his head turned from me. "I was using a fine rifle, and It was the work of an instant to pump another cartridge into the chamber and lire again. Still no move on the part of my target He faced the other way nonchalantly, listening with interest to the echo of the rifle in the distant canyons. I was getting desperate now and could hear the Micmac muttering I1 sorts of Imprecations behind my !?ack, which only made things worse. I fired five more shots at that caribou as he stood as though carved in wood, persevering until he turned off calmly lato a belt of timber. "This story is an absolute fact I would not have credited It had I not been the one to make such a fool of myself. My feelings can be more readily imagined than described. I could have cried with vexation and Shame.

In 190S these three bridges, the Caroline, Augusta and Edwin, were set aside as national monuments, and later certain caves and springs near by were added to the reserved area. It Is difficult to give an adequate idea of these stupendous arches, and so far they have been seen by few persons, for it Is a trip of days acros3 the desert to reach them, but .accurate measurements have been taken and convey some notion of their size and shape. The popular way of reaching these curiosities is from Bluff, Utah, where one can obtain a guide and outfit Thence you proceed through, dry washes, old stream beds and sage covered mesas to the great bridges, which loom up in White canyon far from the beaten path of man. The White canyon Itself is many miles long, and the bridges spring from its steep, light buff walls, the three being within a distance of five miles. They carved by Titanic forces, for the largest is 222 feet high and G5 feet tln-at the top "of the arch. The arch is 2S feet wide, the span is 2G1 foot, and the height of the span is 157 f t. bridge of Virginia Is a The Natm-ftbaby in mparison with any of the three Ut:iii formations. It Is to be regretted n.it these wonderful bridges are not easier of access. Figures give little idea of their Immensity, and words but suggest their beauty. The first account of them given to the world was that of Horace J. Long, who visited the bridges in 1903. Long was an engineer and prospecting in Utah. One day he fell in with a cattleman named Scorup, who was familiar with Utah and in particular with the region lying around the San Juan river. Scorup, after some preliminary conversation, said that he had seen some remarkable bridges so immense and wonderful that he disliked to talk about them for fear he would be accused of manufacturing the story. He added that though be had seen them in 1S93 he had always desired to go back and if Long would accompany him and take photographs be would guarantee to guide the engineer to the place. Accordingly the two men set out with pack horses and provisions, and after a lonely trip through deserts and canyons and wide stretches-- where no animal was to be seen they descended into the gorge of- the White canyon, the sides of which are filled with deserted cliff dwellings. Two days later they came to the wouderful bridges, the first of which, of pink sandstone. Scorup called Caroline in honor of his mother. Long was fairly dazed at the beauty and size of this natural wonder. The pink walls were streaked with delicate lichens and stood out in bold relief against a sky of blue. More than this, botli men felt that they were gazing on one of the wonders of the world. They pushed rapidly down 'the cau-yoand came to another arch, more symmetrical and more beautiful than the first with a lightness and grace and charm of coloring that made it a splendid work of nature. Long named this the Augusta after his wife and managed to get a fair photograph. The arch was so nigh that the trees of California would seem dwarfed beside it. and the men took what measurements they could by climbing and clinging to the canyon's sides. They found the Edwin, or Little ) bridge, several miles down the canyou. the arch in reality of immense dimensions, but small In comparison with those that they had measured.

There is a tendency on the part of railroads to adopt signs with white letters on a black background, not realizing that the black letter on a white background Is easier to read and can be seen at a greater distance. This follows in an Interesting way from the structure of the retina of the eye. The impression of a letter at the limit of vision Is received on the ends of a small bundle of nerves which convey to the brain a sort of mosaic impression. A nerve can only transmit to the brain information as to whether or not a ray of light is falling upon It, and when a nerve is partly in the Rose Perfume From Paraffin. However absurd it may seem it Is. certain that essence of roses may be manufactured from paraffin. The profits offered by this industry are evident at once if one considers that the pure essence of roses is sold at 40 cents a drop for the best. As the essence is fully as popular as it is expensive, the majority of the preparations that are sold in the name of "essence .of roses" are nothing but imitations and not always god ones. Tho latest product was discovered by accident on the congealing of paraffin with liquid, air.

Sta-vange- FASHIONABLE HATS FROM PARIS SHOPS. Odd Crowns Almost Hidden on Classified Golf Glubs as Agricultural Implements. "One of the first men I ever played golf with was Cleveland Dodge," said Woodrow Wilson just before he sailed for Bermuda. "Neither Mr. Dodge nor myself had more than a theoretical knowledge of the game, and our first performances were unique. " 'The trouble is,' said Dodge, 'that we haven't the right sort of clubs. I'll import some.' "So he sent to Scotland and got an invoice of the finest golf clubs that money could buy. There was an instrument for every possible golfing contingency. When they reached the custom house the officials did not know how to classify them. They knew almost as little about golf as Dodge and myself, and there had been no provision made in the law for an import duty on golf clubs. Finally they levied on them as agricultural implements. " 'That,' said Dodge, 'is a deliberate follows, therefore, according to Scientific American, that all nerves the on the dividing edge between any black and white area transmit the sensation of light so that all, white lines and white areas appear wider and all black lines and black areas appear narrower than they really are. Black letters grow thinner at the limit of vision and are still recognizable, while at the same distance white letters grow thicker and cannot be distinguished. There- - are circumstances when it Is necessary to use white letters, but in such cases legibility will be improved if they are made with a thin stroke and strongly lighted. Black letters are more distinct if made with a heavy stroke. "Doing the Trick." Kean played Brutus to his sou's Titus in "Brutus, or the Fall of As may be imagined, the benwas a bumper.

The remarkable discovery has been made that the Eiffel tower sinks over an inch into the ground in certain atmospherical conditions, rising again later to its normal state. It was known that the tower swayed horizontally to the extent of several centimeters, and M. Guillaume of the Academy of Science conceived the idea of stretching a piece of wire from the second story to the ground. Leaving the wire taut, he found that twice after storms It had loosened to the extent of an inch or more. Further investigations have shown that the tower sinks several hours before the approach of stormy weather. In other words, the great structure is an admirable barometer. Lavishly Trimmed Headgear.

It stands on a rather dreary plain, surrounded by mountains and from a distance resembles a straggling' French village with its one storied, red tiled houses clustering around half a dozen larger buildings and two church spires. The most imposing buildings in the town are the Austrian and Russian legations, even the palace of King Nicholas being little more than a substantial looking villa. Certainly there is nothing about the town to indicate the warlike spirit which has made its people famous throughout Europe. Westminster Gazette. Lifting Pig Iron. is quite a common practice to use lifting magnets for handling furnace pig iron. Usually the pigs are stacked horizontally, and not' ipauy of them can,be lifted- at a time, because a relatively small number can be brought into contact with the magnet Some one has recently hit upon the idea of stacking the pigs vertically, so that the face of the magnet will touch a greater number of pjgs. It has been found that by this method the lifting capacity of a magnet which heretofore was able to raise only 1,000 pounds of pig iron was Increased to 2,000 pounds.

DEC, 25. 1912 Gentlemen of the court, progressive citizens of Adair, why should we further and longer hold the best interests of this county down, by pandering to fogyism born of stingy parents, and nourished by miserly methods? Why fear a progressive step when the best interest of all will be advanced? Of a certainty we can not see a reason to justify further delay in the building of first class rock roads. Many will oppose any wove that means expense regardless of the great receipts sure to follow. roads from the Metcalfe county line to Casey, from Russell to Green and from Cumberland to Taylor, and probably build other important roads in' our county. The people of this county are deadening their own interests by inactivity. These roads could be built and paid for within a few years. Increased prosperity, advanced values in every line of property and activity would spring into existence. The News is in favor of immediate action.

Highbrow Professors Filled Up the Cast, and, With Acids and Precious Metals as Stage Properties, They Scored a Brilliant Success. Even the United States government has become possessed of the present day fever to eliminate any 'waste and stop leaks in the methods of doing things. The results, particularly in the mints and assay offices, have been remarkable. For instance, the old method of extracting gold from baser metals when it came from the mint consisted merely of treating the smelter bars of gold with nitric acid, which dissolved out the baser metals, leaving the gold with I a small percentage of impurities that 1 could be removed by fusing with niter. Germany went the United States one better in this. The nrofessors over there, men whose genius for scientific s detail is unsurpassed' by those of any other nation, perfected a process for refining by electricity. Simply stated, it is nothing more nor less than electric plating. The smelter bars are placed in the plating bath, and the gold is deposited in an absolutely pure state, leaving the base metals behind In solution. It was this residue that interested the high brow professors. The fact that platinum is frequently found with gcild has been recognized ever since the science of mptallurgy was in swad dling ciotnes; also tne fact that gold and platinum have one oualitv in com. mon i. e., that no single acid known will dissolve them. It takes a combination of nitric and muriatic acids to get either of these two metals in solution. Silver, on the other hand, is readily soluble in nitric add. No one S ever thought of testing a nitric acid solution of silver for the presence of platinum because of the theory, sound as religion, that platinum could not be dissolved by nitric acid.

One morning Just before the school term closed she grew restless and found her lessons a task. Outside the birds were singing, and all outdoors was so beautiful she decided she would write an "excuse" and spend the rest of the day playing. She spelled out the words in her neatest penmanship and took the paper up to teacher. One glance was sufficient to prove to the lady that the child's mother had not written it. Questioned, she would confess noth ing and was hnally sent home witn a note telling the parents what she had done.

In the beginning the piano was a harp shaped piece of wood, having two or three strings. From time to time more strings were added until the cithara was invented. This was an instrument in the shape of a capital P, with ten strings stretched across the open space. Many centuries afterward musicians conceived the Idea of stretching strings across an open bos. About the year 1200 this was done, the dulcimer made its appearance, and the strings were struck with hammers. For another hundred years or so these hammers were held in the bands, and then some genius Invented a keyboard, which, being struck by the fingers, caused the hammers to strike the strings. This was called a clavicy-theriuor keyed cithara. and from time to time it was modified and improved. During Queen Elizabeth's time it was called a virginal and then a spinet, because the hammers were covered with the spines of quills, which struck and caught the strings and produced the sound. During the period between 1700 and 1S00 it was much improved and enlarged and was given the name of harpsichord. It was in 1710 that Bartholomeo Christofoll, an Italian, Invented a keyboard similar to the one we have now, which causes the hammers to strike the wires from above, and thus developed the piano. During the last century the inventive genius of musicians the world over has revised and improved it until it has reached the present day perfection.
