Bradley who came forward and made an excellent talk in favor of the new road He set forth the many ad vantages to be derived and made them so clear that even the weakkneed present were warmed up on the question Capt Herndon was then called for and made a most excellent talk On motion a committee of about twenty of our more public spir ited citizens were appointed to solicit subscriptions and confer land owners regarding right of way It was then decided to draw up a sub scription different from the one pre viously used and ExGov Bradley Capt Herndon and Mr B F Hudson were committee to pre

the strange wandering of Theodore Miranhoff a peasant of For 25 years Miranhoif has been a wanderer on the face of the earth In that time he has walked enough to carry him around the earth at the equator He has done little all those 3 years but walk walk walk He has walked across Russia he has walked through the snows of Siberia he has walked up the Tamir highlands in central Asia and tramped along the banks of the Amur river to its source lie has gone shuffling across China and his weary feet have stirred the dust in every road in Japan from Nagasaki to Mount Morioshi He has invaded the United States and walked along the west coast and over the Rocky moun tains and across the country to the Atlantic seaboard Then bitch again to Russia and the last heard of him he was wearily walking up the left bank of the Volga river in Russia to follow it for all its wind ing 1500 miles to its source And when Theodore Miranhoff had walked up along the left bank of the Volga from the Caspian sea to its source what did he propose to do then Why then he was going to step across to the other bank of the Volga and walk from its source down to the Cas pian sea Thus for 25 years has Theodore Miranhoff been walking And all to escape the tongue lashing of his shrew ish wife Like poor Rip Van Winkle who fled to the mountains and went to sleep for 20 years Theodore Miranhoff has fled to the trackless desert and the fields of ice and snow in the effort to walk away from the terrible tongue of his wife But unlike Rip Van Win kle who went back after 20 years and found peace poor Theodore Miranhoff even after 25 years was met by his wife still much alive and who un braided him in more burning words than ever and chased him with a broom to the outer circle of Tomboy Then it was Theodore Miranhoff made the remark which if translated literally from Russian to English would be Its me to the Volga for off he put for the banks of the Volga with no other intention than that of walking up one side of that great stream dipping his feet in the source of the river and then walking down the other side It was anything to get away from his wife and so as long as she lives Theodore Miranhoff will keep walking Its a question of en durance between his sturdy legs and Mrs Miranholfs sturdier tongue with the odds all in favor of the tongue last ing the longest Miranhoff when a young man went with his family to Vladivostok on the eastern coast of Siberia There it was apparently that the continual tongue lashings of his wife became so vio lent that Miranhoff decided to leave his happy hqme He started out on his wanderings Finally he reached St Petersburg after walking over 6000 miles But he was not happy there He decided to keep on walking He marched away Russia tramping from town to town until finally he had reached the Ural mountains He crossed these in winter and descending into Siberia again walked southeast and climbed slowly up the highlands to Tamir the roof of the world He found his way sometimes traveling with caravans but oftener alone until he reached the Western Kinghan mountains where he hunted for the source of the Amur river He slowly followed the river in its course to the sea and in time found himslf at Kharbavolca in Si beria only 400 miles from his home So he returned to Vladivostok He determined to stay at home in spite of all But one day after an un usually furious outburst on the part of his wife Theodore silently vanished again This time he walked through China down to Port Arthur and New Chwang The last seen of him he was at Nprgorod on the

to be a millionaire some day declared Jones according to the Detroit Free Press At present he has only an innocent face splashed with sun spots over which he never even allows the ghost of a smile to flicker I am fond of fishing so fend in fact that I dont mind now and then coming back from a fishing trip without even having enjoyed the sight of a fish But there is one thing that I cannot stand and that is the guy ing of my friends who cannot un derstand that the pleasures of a fish erman are not solely confined to a big catch I went fishing the other day for trout in a small country stream which I have always held sacred even from my closest friends of the rod I had no luck and was on my way home when I met this small boy with a long string of fine trout His outfit would have caused a horse to laugh but he had the fish and I had none so I did not feel like laughing myself With my guying friends in mind I struck a bargain with the urchin paying him three prices and went on my way rejoicing Two days Inter I visited the same stream and had the same luck not even hooking the big one that always gets away Coming out I met the boy again carrying an other string of trout and we struck another bargain See here said I somewhat at his luck Ill give you 60 cents if you will tell me how you manage to get such a string of trout every day The boy held out for a dollar and got it Its jes this way said he all the kids around here fish more or less and sometimes they catch one or two and I go around and buy em up then I sell em to some greenj that aint had no luck I aint caught a fish myself this year I aint had time he added with a grin It is a great scheme and I dont begrudge him the money that he made out of me Smallest of the Small While we are accustomed to think of atoms as the smallest possible particles into which matter can be divided recent experiments those of Dr Gustave Le Bon have indicated that through elec trical dissociation atoms themselves are capable of subdivision into of amazing minuteness Many years ago Lord Kelvin calculated the probable size of a molecule of air and according to him about 25000000 such molecules laid in a row would an inch There would be 600 air molecules in a wavelength of light Every molecule is of atoms smaller than itself Now Dr Le Bon calculates that the particles dissociated by the electric energy which produces such as the Beequerel rays are so small that even atoms would appear to be infinitely large in comparison with them YouthsCompanjn t being statue ala gardens the opposite London I si

Been at nn A tcmlolilnsrly Rapid lUtte lit Recent Years About ten years ago there were lees than 300 whitemen living in the Congo FreeState There was scarce ly a merchant among them and only a few missionaries Most of them were employes of the government and they were engaged in exploring the new territory in establishing and officering stations and in training the natives for service as soldiers hands and workmen The proportion of deaths among them was appalling and with very few exceptions they were obliged every two or three years to take long furloughs in more healthful regions says the New York SunThe latest statistics with regard to the whites living in the Congo Free State show that about 1700 are all over the state The exact number on 1 last year was 1630 Onesixth of the entire number live at Boma the capital of the state 50 miles up the river and a large part of them are in charge of or are employed in the public offices About 200 are living at Matadi 90 miles up the river and most of them are in the transportation service for Matadi is the starting point of the railroad with the Upper Congo and here all freight is transshipped the railroad and the European steamers There are nearly as many white men at Stanley Pool as at Boma for Stanley Pool is the place where freight is transshipped between the railroad and the upriver and here also are the ship yards where the steamers are put together and repaired A large number of state and missionary stations are now established on the upper river and on its tributaries far north and south of the main stream Titus over 700 whites are now living the upper river system above Stanley Pool and about 400 of them are really in Cen tral Africa for they live from 1000 to nearly 2000 miles from the mouth of tIle river Just about onehall of the white personnel are Belgians and nearly all the leading nations are in the remainder The increase of whites in the French Congo territory is also very large This large region is just north of the Congo Free State and though it is officially known as the French Congo an important part of it is trib utary to other streams flowing to the Atlantic or to Lake Tchad On 1 last 730 whites were living in the French Congo of whom fivesev enths were French The are not so generally distributed through the country as in the Congo State for missionary stations are not yet widely distributed The largest white population is at at the head of the navigation on the Ogowe river several hundred miles from the ocean About onesev enth of the white population are women which is a larger proportion than in the Congo State A small but steady stream of set tIers is flowing from Germany to man Southwest Africa The are not very recent but in 1896 2025 whites were living there of whom 945 were women and children Fifteen years ago there were very few whites in that part of Africa but it is now forging ahead faster in its develop ment than any other part of the possessions THE FRENCH METHOD Excellent System Whereby Habitual CrimInals Are Forced to Be come Good Citizens In France they manage the habitual criminal question better than in any other country in the world For a pickpocket a professions beggar or a habitual drunk and dis orderly is brought up for his or her fourth or fifth conviction It is proved beyond doubt that he or she is of performing the duties and therefore of exercising the rights of a free citizen sentence is parsed for the last time a term of imprisonment is imposed which is really a for the new life which the hope less case the piece of human refuse is to lead At the expiration of your sentence you will be placed in relegation says the judge That means banishment for life The criminal never sees his old haunts mixes with his old again save in exile It will no longer be possible for him to commit crime or to contaminate the society which has now finished with him Moreover he has got to work and if he wont do that lIe will find his food cut down and himself in a prison which is made just about as for him as it can be France possesses two of these dump ing grounds for human refuse as they may be called One is French Guiana which is about one of the best places in the world to get out of and stay away from The other is the Isle of Pines which is a coralfringed far away hi the fciouth Pacific one of the most beautiful spots ever by human feet or darkened by the presence of human crime Their working day is about seven hours and a half They are well treated well fed and by no means overworked Of course very few of them know anything about a trade Their only idea in life has been to loaf from the cradle to the grave Those who can never be made into workmen or workwomen are put on the fields farms and coffee plant tions Others are taught trades and gradually the aimless shiftless loaf er of the slums becomes a more or less skillful carpenter blacksmith wheelwright or stonemason Language In the Czars

heard it many a time when his father had neglected to a bouquet because there was more flour than codfish in the favorite dish For a moment the young husband looked at the dregs which floated on top of his coffee and then the boast that he had made to his moth er that no woman should ever boss him returned And he spoke as It is quite likely that the chestnut which you have flung with a womans

the last man that I attempted to call upon He was so honest that I rather liked him but you cant let friendship stand in the way of business and I couldnt make an exception of him I had about 200 at
