SPANKING MACHINE it At Red Wing Training School in Minnesota a mechanical in vention has been put into operation Itwhich is calculated to bring immeasurable relief to tired mothers and overtaxed teachers It is nothing more nor less than a spanking machine We are not informed as to the mechanical details but we understand in a generalway that it is a combination of the principles of mothers old slipper and a separator threshing machine and tl at it is run by hand power horse power steam or electricity as the exigencies of the case may demand- It can be geared up to run with all degrees of intensity and may have the single or double back action movement just as the enormity of the offense and the capacity of the urchin to stand punishment may require or permit if it is all that its inventors claim for it it is destined to revolutionize tha discipline of many families and the character of our future citizen shipi generally When it is once introduced the youthful transgressor will no longer go unwhipped of justice because mother is not strong or father is too busy or teache- is unable to meet all the de I minds for the use of the birch When every household and school shall be supplied with this indi spensable appliance the spanking I machine will do its work whilee mother takes her siesta or fath er goes about his usual businessi or the school warm proceeds with her customary methods of teach ing the young idea how to shoot There will no longer be any goodl reason why the Solomonic injunction as to spoiling the child shall be disregarded It will be with a feeling of re gret that wa shall see the old disappparilOwevpr Il of the animal about them They grow to love the hand that smites them The affection thus engendered will disappear when11I the machine is substituted for I the strong right arm But there will be compensations The J machine can be better regulated can be so adjusted that it will 1 strike just so many licks and of an exactly uniform character will never get mad and warms the jacket until it blisters or rends another part of the anat omy so sensitive that it will not be comfortable to sit down for several days afterward From all that we have learned about it we are inclined to be lieve that the machine willrank even ahead of the sewing machine j and the cooking stove in its beneficent effects upon dom estic and political economy If spine one willnow invent a perfect machine with which the erring sons of men can and will kick themselves when they act if the fool the millennium will be brought much nearer CRY Al Quite a while since we grasped our pen to dot down the stirring events of our little village for the readers of the Courier to dis t pel the glo my hours and drive monotony from the ceaselese rounds of every day life Meant i while things have transpired in 1 such quick succession that we are at a loss to know just how themrThanksgiving services were heldat Antioch church last Thursday and quite a large crowd was in attendance Dinner was j served on the grounds and from the rich and palatable viands displayed in such abundance the good people of this vicinity have 1 great cause to be truly thankful Arthur Roberts formerly of this place but nowof Arkansas came over to see relatives and old friends last Wednesday From his appearance we would judge Arkansas to be a land where food ii abundant anti

to get acquainted with the brethren The doctor says he is up on doctrine We extend him hearty welcome to our town Mr Aubrey Roberts is at his home with a sec attack of pneumonia at presei He is

been called to the pas toral care of lit Olive for 1504 at the expiration of Rev Moores time Rev Moore has done a noble self sacrificing work at his place sinca he became pastor and it is with deep regret that church has to part with him He is of the bold and fearless type of preachers who preach the truth because it is truth and will not compromise for one moment with known error We can heartily recommend him where ever he may go j Dock Cloar died suddenly at his brothers home last Wednes day morning He had been lung afflicted and in almost a help 1 less condition His death was

WHEN INSTINCT PAILS Stair hide In Plain Stekt and Moths Seek Vrotectloa ot White Celllnuo A good Instance of the failure of In stinct to adapt itself to new conditions came to my notice this morning In a glass case are kept a couple of blind- worms which aro fed regularly upon slugs and sometimes it is no easy mat cleverlydoYet tho cleverness Is merely the adaptation of habit to circumstances and when the circumstances change it may become the veriest folly says Country Life For the slugs have no idea that they are hiding from enemies when they get into dark damp crevices The habit of seeking such places has been stereotyped on their minds because it is by that means that their ancestors escaped from their enemies of the past Last night however it happened that the only damp thing in tale case was a slice of turnip put In for food for the slugs which was standing upright and this morning all the slugs in the case were collected together on the shady side of the slice in full view of the blindworms as they came out to breakfastIf was any glimraeringof reason In the apparent cleverness with which they ordinarily hide they would of course have sneaked away from the turnip under cover of the darkness and hidden themselves unlier the stones as usualThe same miscarriage of an instinct which seems very clever in its ordinary operation may boon seen In the conduct of tho moths which are beau tifully mottled and tinted with grays and browns to mimic the coloring of the rocks or tree trunks upon which thor rest in the state of nature When these have come into a lighted room overnight and have been shut in they may be seen next morning taking cover on time wall paper or the white ceiling where they are as conspicuous- as a cockroach on a tablecloth The same rule runs through all na ture The white pheasant crouches among the tawny loaves for the same reason as his tawny comrades he cause hits ancestors have done so and survived to transmit their Instinct to him That In his case the trick fails is the reason why our pheasants are not white but tho others have no idea that the brown leaves help to hide them They would behave In the same way whatever color they or the leaves might become tomorrow Only if the change wore permanent natureIn tho shape of birds and- beasts of preywould see to it that the pheasants became again the color of the leaves with as little delay as possible HIGH SPEED TESTS Record Urcnklnff Achievement e1 Grrmnn Electricians of llecrnt Dur- An elaborate seifesroivexperimenb Ift 4was undertaken in Germany uno er the auspices of
