Of course there are doubtless a few persons who do drink out of finger bowls, just as there are a few in real life who blow out the gas. But such persons are not as numerous as one might believe after consuming the contents of the comic weeklies. Nevertheless, the patrons of hotels in the Northwest will be secure from the possibility of mak- ing the faux pas. The Hotel Keepers' Association, in convention assembled in Minneapolis, has decided to remove the finger bowls from the tables. They will be supplied on demand. Therefore, only those who are finger bowl "broken" and will not shy at them will have them around. A simple and sensible edict. Finger bowls as optional access- ories are desirable. But shoving 'em at all and sundry, regardless of whether they want 'em or know what they are for is cruel. Finger bowls in use may attract the attention of those who don't call for them and prove educative. Frankf or t. Some Dry, Too.

The Pennsylvania railroad is to install a wireless telephone system on its trains with a view to preventing accidents.

While a metallic circuit is used, tlie system Is practically wireless. The railroad track Is one line of the circuit, contact being made between some portion of a metal part of the truck. A single metal connection is then wound about the coupling of each car, and from this point the circuit is carried to a pole on each car. The electric battery then flashes the current from pole to pole and the system is complete. An ordinary headpiece instrument is Installed in the cab of the engine for the use of the engineer, while the mouthpiece can be attached to some part of the trainman's uniform, so as to leave his hands free to perform his regular duties. PROBE MISSIONARY'S DEATH. C. H. Holbrook Was Killed by Mistake. Constantinople. As the result of conflicting versions of the murder of the Rev. Dr. Charles H. Holbrook, an American missionary, at Soushehir, Asiatic Turkey, Lewis Heck, acting vice consul and interpreter at the United States consulate general here, has been sent to Soushehir to make an investigation. Officials of the Bible House in Constantinople assert they have information that the murder of the missionary was deliberate, whereas the Turkish authorities assert that Dr. Holbrook was killed in mistake for an Armenian who had aroused the anger of two Turks Assert That With Plenty of Reason. One of the traditional stories of the town of Fairfield, Conn., recounts wild dash from the pulpit made b a worthy and beloved pastor of thn Episcopal flock. Dr. Labaree. It was on a Sunday more than a hUD dred years ago. The service had beer read, the prayers said, the hymns sun? and the parson began bis sermon. proceeded his gestures became ver energetic. He brought his right ham: down with great force. Then he turned pale, cleared the pulpit stairs at a bound, dashed out of the church door and ran toward the pond a short distance away. The congregation followed in bewildered pursuit and saw their venerable pastor with flying robe rush into the water until it came to 'his neck. Then, turning round, he faced his astonished audience and said: "Dearly beloved brethren, I am not crazy, as no doubt many of you think, but yesterday at the drug store I bought a bottle of nitric acid and carelessly left it in my pocket today. "My last gesture broke the bottle. 1 knew the suffering the acid would cause when it penetrated my clothing and rushed for the water to save myself pain." He drew several pieces of glass from his pocket in witness of the tale. Then he dismissed the company and hurried A-- he Pledges Under Whic:i T .y Were Tied In Medieval 1 nines. borne. FROZEN WITH HEAT. Remarkable Process Known as the Calorie Paradox. Freezing is usually associated with cold, but water can be frozen on a red-hplate. This pretty experiment has rightly been called the caloric paradox. If a drop of water is placed on a red-hor white hot metal plate it does not suddenly flash into steam unde) the influence of the great heat. It does not even boil. It simply evaporates quietly and slowly as It rolls about the plate. Now, suppose that the drop on She plate is a volatile liquid like sulphurous acid. It will evaporate, and this evaporation will produce cold. Let a drop of water fall in the sulphurous acid drop and it will be frozen in spite f the heat. M. Boutigny thus froze water on a white hot platinum capsule. Faraday carried this remarkable experiment aven further. Pouring some ether and solidified carbonic acid gas on a red hot platinum capsule, be formed a spheroidal mass which evaporated very slowly.

In the good old days when the bride was taken "for fairer, for fouler, for better, for worse," and promised "to be buxom and bonny" to her husband, her father gave the bridegroom one of r the bride's shoes as a token of of authority. The bride was made to feel the change by a blow or the head duly administered with the shoe. How much more significant and eloquent a use of the article than our "refined" custom of throwing it after the carriage! The husband took oatb to treat his wife well, in failure oC which she might leave him. As a point of honor, however, he was allowed to "bestow on his wife and apprentices moderate castigation." An old Welsh law lays it down that three blows with a broomstick "on any part of the person except the head is a fair allowance," while another provides that the stick "be not longer than the husband's arm nor thicker than his middle finger." The bride, however, had her privileges. In certain countries it was her accepted right the morning after the wedding day to ask for any sum of money or any estate that she pleased, and her husband ru . not in honor refuse. A man hart pretty sure of his bride's "intei us" to run such, a risk.

The distinguished company of contributors to the first number of the Nineteenth Century was selected from a yet more distinguished company of which Lord Avebury was a membar. This was the Metaphysical society, founded by James Knowle3 and Tennyson in 1SG9. Its members ranged: from Dean Stanley to Huxley and. from Tyndall to Manning, and its meetings saw such unusual sights as the Catholic Manning, supported by two Protestant bishops, presiding over a discussion among atheists, deists anSL freethinkers.

Westminster Ga- st Hagerstown, Md. To be married to each other eleven times since 1009 has been the novel experience of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Vernon, who are at Brad-doc- k Heights. The marriage ceremonies have been performed in as many different countries. Asked why he and his wife had been married so often, Vernon said it was a sort of hobby with them, and they took the step as a precaution because in some foreign countries marriages performed in others are not recognized. He and his wife were first married in Columbus, O., in 1909; then in Montreal in 1910; in England, Scotlan-u- , Wales, France. Germany, Belgium and Russia in 1911: in Sydney, Australia, in 1912, and in Vera Cruz, Mexico, in 1913. They hold marriage certificates of all these weddings, and the display is unique. In some of the countries where they were married they did not understand a word the officiating clergyman was saying, but simply nodded their heads when they thought the time had come to make the responses. They speak French and German. U. No "Deadhead" Trip.

CONFECTIONERY. Centuries Ago It Was a Part of the Art of the Apothecary. Curiously enough, the making of confectionery originated in a way with the apothecaries about 500 years ago. It was then that sugar was first imported into England, and it was then . that "confections" first became known. For a time they appeared only in medical form, the apothecaries using the newly imported sugar as u means of mitigating the bitterness of their doses. In other words, they mixed their drugs with it, and therein lay the origin of many of the sirups and medicated candies, the ancestors of our cough drops and lozenges. The cost of sugar was far too high, and most people were far too poor to permit of its being eaten for its own sake alone and as a mere luxury. It was only a couple of centures ago that there began to appear a new phase of the apothecary's art Confections began to be made more or less apart from any medicinal purpose and because people liked them, and eventually the confectioner's business became quite separate and distinct from that of the apothecary. Although the confectioner's trade may be said to be about 200 years old, it was only within recent times that it became a real and extensive industry. At first sugar was heavily taxed, and the confectioner's trade was pursued upon very elementary principles. For a long time everything was done by hand. Implements were of the very simplest candy kettles heated on small brick furnaces, pestles and mortars, rolling pins and scissors, etc. The output was very small, and, comparatively speaking, sweetmeats of all sorts were expensive and frequently unat- What's The Matter ) With Your Baby? !Tho younc mother and many an old one. too is often puzzled to know the cause of her child's ill nature.

It was charged Boyce hooked himself, his thirteen-year-ol- d son and his wife to the digger, but the efforts of the three, despite the horses' aid, were insufficient for the farmer's purpose. Becoming enraged, Boyce Is alleged to have beaten his wife and thrown her into a gully. The complaint was made by a married daughter, Mrs. Grace Townel, of Elizabeth, Boyce was held in $200 bail to await the action of the grand jury. Mrs. Boyce disappeared after the alleged assault and was found working in a restaurant here. The couple became reconciled after the husband's arrest, but the charge still stands.

A tired little woman, leading a burro with a lopsided pack came down the mountain into this camp. Every man in the street helped to undo the hitches that fastened a plank coffin to the pack saddle and carry it into a house, where the woman broke down over the body of her husband, which the coffin contained. Bhe said her husband, P. T. Strib-lina prospector, was killed and his partner badly hurt in a cavein on their claim. She made the injured man as comfortable as she could and placed provisions where he could reach them. Then she proceeded to build the coffin around her husband's body and in getting it on the burro's hours back.
