residing along rural free mail delivery routes in this county will be greatl pleased to read the following from the Postmaster General A limited parcels post for the rural free delivery routes will be recommended by Postmas ter General Hitchcock in his forthcoming annual report In announcing this tonight the Postmaster General fore sees the establishment of a general parcels post through out the country as soonas the postal savings system is thoroughly organized As the preliminary step in the development of such a service Mr Hitcbcocic will ask Congress to authorize the delivery on rural routes of parcels weigh ing as high as eleven pounds which is the weight limit for theinternational parcels post This form of service it is maintained can be conducted with little if any additional expense to the government tt will not require the ap pointment of more carriers for those already employed have the necessary equip ment in the way of horses and wagons to distribute the par cels as well as the ordinary mail Rarely is the latter of sufficient volume to take up more than a small portion of the mail space in the carriers wagon A rural parcel post of the kind proposed if suc cessfully conducted probably would lead the department to attempt a more general sys tem Mr Hitchcock behe yes however that before the par cel service is extended to the Phooe 91Z W P BAXTER BAKING

explain to a lady what her duties and liabilities were as guardian oC her children he did not seem to succeed very well After the lady left we asked bin what the trouble was about He said Very few people seem to understand or know any thing about the law in this state governing Fiduciaries suchas Administrators Executors Guardians and others and frequently this lack of knowledge produces great confusion and misunderstanding and difficulty when settlements are sought to be made Well what is the law touching such matters waasked the Judge replied In the first place overy executor when required so to do and every administra tor and executor with the will annexed upon receiving his appointment by the court is required by the statutes to ex ecute a bond with good ecurity suffici cut to secure the whole valuj of tho estate of the decedent and to take an oath to faithfully discharge all the du ties of a trust The court then appoints three appraisers whose duty it is to appraise all the personal property of the deceased of every kind and character after hav ing been first sworn to discharge their duty the apprai5ment must be made out and signed by the appraisers and re turned to the Clerks office within three months after thoir appointment it is better however that this appraisment bo returned at once It is then the duty of the personal rep sentativo to convert the appraised property except that set apart for tho wi dow if there be one into cash and immediately return an inventory and tho sale bill to the clerks office for failure to do thil within six months ho may be fined 1000 for each day ho fails to make tho return upon notice Tho law requires everypersonal representative to settle his accounts with the County Court within two years after ho qualifies and as often thereafter as the court may require but frequently it is better to make these settlements as soon as the estate is in proper shape and not wait the two years unless it is necessary These settlements when approved by the court shall be recorded and indexed by the Clerk and the original and vouchers carefully kept bX him in his officePersonal representatives should keep a caret nl record of all their acts pay out no money on claims against tho estato unless they are properly verified accord ing to law otherwise it would bo improper for them to have credit in their settlements for such payments What about guardians we asked There is no more stringent law on the statuto books than that governing guar dians for the protection of infant wards The law requires that a guardian shall within CO days after his appointment return to the court a true and perfect inventory of the real and personal estate of the ward signed by him and verified by his affidavit and an additional inven tory of any other estate that turns up later and for failure to make any such return the court may remove the guardian Nosuch inventory has been re turned to me since I have been Judge and it is frequently impossible to find any record evidence of how much money came into the guardians hands This inventory is required to be re corded and it is the duty of the clerks twice a year to present to tho court a list of the guardians who have failed to return the inventory or to settle their accounts tho law then requires the court to summon any delinquent coerce performance of his duty or remove him holding him personally for the cost of the proceeding Iquoto the language of the statute No disbursements shall be allowed a guardian for the maintenance and education of the ward beyond the income of the estate except where tho ward is of such tender years or infirm health that he cannot be bound as an apprentice or no suitable person will take him as such or when it is best for the ward that the principal of his personal estate shall be applied for his board and tuition and the court upon settlement of the accounts shall deem such appli cation to have been judicious and properly made Section 2035 A provides that guar dians shall be charged with the following rates of interest Where the amount received and held in trust does not exceed 8500000 S per cent whore the amount received and held in trUst exceeds 500000 4 per cent provided that nothing in this act shall prohibit or prevent such fiduciaries from accounting for or being chargeable with such sums in excess of tho rates herein fixed as may bo realized upon any investment of any such funds made J y any such fidu ciary Section 2037 reads A guardian shall within 00 days after the expiratonof a year from his appointment settle his accountas guardian with the County Court and at least once every two years thereafter and at such times as the court may require The necessary vouchers shall accompany and remain with the guardians accounts presented for settlement which when properly made shall be prima fade evidence in his favor Noguardian is permitted by the law tQ act as such or to collect any moneys belonging to the ward until he lies qualified and executed the bond The section of the statute which most greatly concerts the County Judge is that one which holds him responsible for funds ia the hands of guardian and it is his duty under the awtoat least once in each year carefully inquire into the solvency of all the sureties upon the bod of each fiduciary mad if upon in quiry ttiereis reason to believe that any hoed k not amply suWeisnt to protect from all loss those Interested he hall at enee give notion to Mea fiduciary that a new bond or additional surety on the old ooe is required and upon failure of mali ftduekry to give said bond or surety within a reasonable time to be fixed by the eoort he shall be removed Section M45 provides that any fiducv ary JCaiRwg withaut good cause

find that every body is anxious to comply with tho law when it is explained to them Those who have not settled should remember that they stand charged on tho countys books with tho estate in their

Not Only Thrice but a Dozen Times and Still Da Reicued Congestive Chills and the Merging of DiseasesLaw Point Three physicians were standing In n downtown drug store the other day when one who bad been looking at an evening paper exclaimed Great Caesar here It is again I see It Ini the papers at least twice a month Whats that asked one of the others Its that popular fallacy about a drowning man sinking for the third time Here It says Just as be was sinking for the third time bo was saved by the timely arrival etc The next time I see this third Ume business it probably will read He sank for the third time before aid could be had and was drowned Why will people get that fool Idea that sinking for the third time must needs be fatal to a drowning man Why bless you I saw a man sink a half dozen times before he was yes cued alive An uncle of mine wit nesses said never sank but once and he was drowned The number of times A man sinks has nothing to do with his drowning He may sink but once and he may go beneath the water any number of times It all depends upon physIcallungs fill with water That cycle of three suggested an alongbyin his third suggestive chill But this goodInthe drowning man A person may die In the first or ho may have a dozen and still live The rule of three does not obtain there either dlsdalnpersons would swear that If ye git typhoIdfevershore death Theres that same old rule of three angrilyFirst suchthIng malarIAhething is true of typhoid fever and pneumonia Each one is a separate and distinct trouble and a doctor with any sense should bo able to diagnose his malady from symptoms which are entirelydifferentFrom popular fallacies In regard to medicine the conversation drifted to fallacies regarding the law A lawyer explainfirstof the bystanders said 1 made a bet the other day that a person had no right to touch a dead body until the coroner arrived and 1I wonWho decided the question for you asked the lawyer smilingly Well said the man sheepishly it was a bartender but hes an educated fellow and la a good Judge of the law You speak of the law ns If it were something to be judged like cattle at a fat stock show replied the attorney There Is no law on any statute book In any state in the United States which says one may not touch a body before the arrival of the coroner In case of murder the old English common law used to require that the body of the murdered one be left Just ns it lay until viewed by one In authority That was done it can plainly be seen for the purpose of preserving tho surroundings Intact so that whatever evidence might be there would not be disturbed In case of n murder today especially if any mystery were connected with It common sense would teach a person to leave everything In tact not alone for the coroner but for the police officials as well But should the body of a murdered man be moved there Is no law covering it unless it could be proved that the person who moved tho body did it with the Inten tion to destroy evidence In cases of suicide or death by accident there could be no obJecUon to moving the body anywhere In the city If done with humane or some other proper motive Ill tell you what Is the law said a stoop shouldered long armed man wtib had been listening long enough to get the gist of the discussion If a fellow sees a murder through a pane of glass he cant be a witness in the caseOb piffle exclaimed the attorney Im going to lunch Thats the limit I was waiting for some yap to spring that If that was the case and a mur der should be committed in this room half a dozen of us could not be corn petent witnesses if your statement is true because we are wearing glasses Glass is glass whether in a window or on tho nose There is no such law as that Thats foolish saythattInsIstedthe knowd law too Yes retorted the exasperated att tomeS and he no doubt gave It out as law that a man could stand with his back against his own house and kit any see who came within a

relation to the present methods of personal deOra- tIon now used by the natives of Alaska the most significant feature ot Which is the wearing of lip buttons of labrcts by tbo men- The present custom Is that when a boy Is fourteen or sixteen years of age holes are pierced In his lower lip ono below each corner of the mouth A small wooden plug is at first Inserted to keep the hole from growing together and month by month a bigger and bigger plug Is used till finally the openings are half an inch In diameter At this point the young man begins to wear stone or Ivory plugs These ornaments are put In from the Inside ordinarily as one might Insert a but ton Into a shirt front Usually the two buttons wom are each of a different sort while sometimes only one of the holes Is filled and in

Risky Business For the Man Who Doesnt Know LURING ON AN EASY MARK The Story of How a Rich American Was Worked by a Crafty Oriental SalesmanUnder tho Mystic Spell of the Dim Religious Light Writing of The Passing of the An tique Rug In the Century John Kim hotly Mumford tells this story It Is beyond question cheaper to buy In America your rug and the ingenious tale that goes with It than to wait un til you visit Constantinople or Smyrna or Cairo or THUs They are much more skillful nnd insinuating over there They have the advantage of local color and environment and your common sense Is under the spell of the east to begin with Here is an Incident to Illustrate A party of rich Americans arrived In Cairo ono day several winters ago on a yachting trip and passed a week or more In sightseeing One of thorn had Just finished n palatial house not far from New York and throughout Eu rope had bought marbles nnd bronzes woodwork and velvets for it with a lavish hand The Journey to Cairo was made In order to secure russ What happened is best told in the words of a dealer in tbo bazaar from whom 1 had itThere was a fellow In our con cern he snldwho was always buy- Ing nightmares and 1 had to work myself black in the face to get rid of them The week before the Americans came this chap had taken in a Shockingly bad pair pf KIrmans enor mously big new and to toy mind utterly unsalable When the head of the house saw theta be held up his hands and shouted Get rid of those things for a hundred pounds to the first person wholl buy them So I rolled them up and put them one side intending to send them to a commission man in the bazaar to un load Next morning In came Money bags from New York with his whole company He said be wanted to see the best carpets had nnd he saw them I turned the place Inside out Nothing pleased him for the reason that I made the common mistake of showing him too much He thought I had something hidden away so lie winked me over into one corner and told me who he was Now said he I want you to limber up r want the best and I dont mind price if I get what suits me I was iu despair for I had actually shown the man every carpet I bad All of a sudden I thought of these two freaks baled away the day before I almost laughed In his face but finally I pulled mY mouth down nnd began salaaming and asked him why in the world he hadnt told me who he was in the beginning then shouldnt have wasted his time and abused his pa tience so He grinned triumphantly I thought you had them be said But said It will take a little time to get at them and I must ask you and your friends to wait pa tientlyThey waited and I tell you for the next half hour the men around that shop earned their pay We went up stairs and unrolled those two rugs We had n great big curtain of green plush which we hung against the wall Then we pressed the carpets out and put them up against the cur tain That you know is worth CO per cent to the looks Then we adjusted the lights and stationed men all around to look as solemn as worship ers Nobcdy was to speak above a whisper and every man was to murmur Mash tllnh at appropriate Inter valsWhen everything was ready I ash ered the customers up and on tiptoe led them in There is no doubt about It the effect was fine At first every body was still It was like a church Ah said the greatman that 1st what I came for I knew you had them You neednt tell me the price Just send them 16 the yacht at Alex andria That night I went up to the hotel where they were stopping awl got his check for COOOO francs for thea pair And that wasnt the best of It I had got into my stride then and while he was busy aiiBeslBg the Kirmaas I had the porters brings up seven of the carpets he had refused downstairs and showed them in that dim religious light unrolling them as If they had been saqred and slghfng soulfully every now and then He bought the whole seven and to the day of his death fully believed that I was the original wizard ot the east Etket4 of

hibit PhasLlke the Moos We are likely to regard the moos as the only thing In the heavens that ex hibits phases such as the quarter the half and the fulL As a matter of fact all planets and their satellites exhibit separately such phases and most of them can be easily seen with a small power telescope Thus Mars and Ve nus which are comparatively close to the earth show through the telescope at times a beautiful crescent at others a half planet fully as titlljiantc nsld crlng the distance as does satellite At times also the planets suffer eclipse Just as the earth the moon and the sunand thesc eclipses are foretold with as great accuracy As to Just what causes the phases say of the moon Is easy to comprehend by a homely analogy If one stands In a corner of a room places a globe of some description in the next corner and a light In the third corner the phenomenon ot the halt moon Is seen The light representing the sun shInes of course on halt the globe representing tho moon but the observer In the cor nor sees only half of the surface toward him illuminated If now the light be placed behind the observer and a little above his head a full moon will be seen the sun however shining on the same area of surface as before merely allowing this time a view from tho earth of the whole amount ot illumination All the phases can be demonstrated In this manner by mov- Ing the mooh directly outward from cornerOne greatest discoveries of science is duo to observation of the eclipses of Jupiters moons It was found that when the earth was In the part of lei orbit nearest to Jupiter these eclipses occurred sixteen minutes earlier than when it was In the far thermost part whereas by all rules of astronomy they should have occurred at the same minute each time It was deduced from this that light was not instantaneous and consequently took sIxteen minutes to traverse the diam eter of the earths orbit a distance of about 200000000 miles thus giving to light a velocity ot 1SGOOO miles a see mid which was accurately shown later by other cxtxinimentsSL Louis Re public WATCH SPRINGS Not Surprising They freak Consider ing tho Work They Do The mainspring of a watch docs not unwind

approaching a perfection measurably satisfactory to the sculptor himself Falgulere became so absorbed In the work before him as to forget that It was not hIs own He began to twist and pull the dainty

hairs that are seen under the microscope to be hollow and spiked like bayonets These hairs are commonly called bamboo poison by the white men resident In Java for the reason that murder Is frequently committed through their agency When a Javanese woman takes a fancy toa European according to an ufllcial Dutch report she will either have him or poison him if she gets the chance She socks any and every opportunity of mixing these Infinitesimal hairs among Ills food and they serve the purpose of Irritating the whole length of thc alimentary canal and set ting up malignant dysentery It may take a long time and many doses of this so called poison to effect the purpose but the native woman does not tire and death will surely result The male native will also try this method of revenge for nn affront The planters know all this and dread the bamboo hair but It Is al ways difficult to determine whether the dysentery Is caused by the poison or comes about naturally When a planter finds himself prey to attacks of that complaint his best course Is to take a voyage to Europe Pearsons Weekly BOILING TO DEATH Terrible Torture That Was Once the Law In England In England during tim reign ol Henry VU1 the public mind became greatly excited through several cases or poisoning and parliament enacted a law making boiling to death the pen alty This law was on the statute books about sixteen years It was made retroactive so as to take in a case that chiefly prompted its enact ment that of Richard Kossc other wise Coke the bishop of Rochesters cook who poisoned seventeen persons two of whom died Coke was boiled at Rochester The Infliction was at tended with peculiar cruelty as Coke was put into a caldron of cold water and gradually cooked to death A few years later in March 1542 a young woman named Margaret Davy was punished In a similar way on conviction of poisoning The public was not satisfied as to her guilt and not withstanding the comparatively slow travel of news in those days the story of Margaret Davys trial and punishment soon spread through the king dom and aroused universal horror Boiling to death fpnalncd on the stat ute books however as long as Henry reigned perhaps because the monarch himself had a dread of being poisoned Immediately after his death parlia ment repealed the law Helping a Man to Suicide It is remarkable how a suicide by a certain method or in a certain place will lead to another of the same kind A surgeon of the Middlesex hospital in London went into a barber shop to be shaved The barber spoke of a man who had been

been the fate of many men of letters to have HI health bearing them down as they struggle on toward lit erary achievements Thus beset in recent times were Stevenson Richard Jeffries and J It Green Each of these It happened had a high hearted wife to keep him up even to help him with the actual labor of writing The Life and Letters of J R Green show forth a great and sweet man The show too a wife whose sympathy and fortitude helped to make his accomplishment possible- In copying the vast amount of manuscript of her husbands books Mrs Green contracted writers cramp and was forced to stop using her right hand This looked like a final obsta cle in the way of the Invalid who did much of his thinking In bed and could not write himself But Mrs Green set to work at once learning to write with her left hand One of her first practice pages which she was about to destroy with the rest her husband took quietly and put in his pocket Years afterward when health seemed unbearable and in discouragement he felt that bo could not work he used to take out that piece of taper a living record of his wifes triumph over difficulty When he saw the painful patient strokes by which Mrs Green bad learned to write with her left hand he could work on with something near to inspiration Poison of the Ctntlped Tile ccntlpcd Is popularly supposed to carry a sting on each foot but I hare several

pleasedIparty started on the 20th of November from Indianapolis After carefully examining the excellent schools of Montgomery and Tippe canoo counties Ind the party proceeded to Toronto Canada via Detroit From Toronto the famous agricultural college of Guelph Ontario was visited Perhaps no other school in America has worked out the problem of scientific farming so well as Quelph Only tho sons and daughters of actual farmers are admitted and they must make good to stay The Province of Ontario is pecu liar in that it has no system of direct taxation The party spent Sunday at Niagara Falls and on Monday returned to Ohio where the consolidated schools of Kinsman and Ash tabula were examin ed In northern Indiana Ohio and Canada the one room school house is nrnn tically a thing of tho past and centralized schools have taken their places The plan is as follows a township is six miles square a large and Commodious building is erected in tho center usually in the country Tho children are trans ported to and from the schools in wagons made for the purpose The schools are equal in every way to tho best city schools in organization and instruction and superior in environment The say ing

active ability and Increases mental and physical power It makes hosts of friends and helps us to bo interesting and agreeable EFFECT OF HEAT Why Standing Before a Hot Fire Makes the Face Red When one stands before a hot fire the face becomes red as wo all know This result Is the effect of the action of radiated heat on the nerves controlling the small blood vessels of the skin These tiny vessels are normally In a state of moderate contraction Under exposure to heat they relax and become distended with blood The same process under the mysterious connection of the vasomotor nerve system with mental impressions produces ordinary blushing- In regard to exposure to direct heat the reddening of the skin together with the uncomfortablly warm feel Ing accompanying It may bo looked upon as one of the useful little dan ger signals with which we are surrounded Persons who from any cause have lost their susceptibility as Is the case In some forms of paralysis may expose a limb to heat until seri ous Injury results The reason that the face chiefly flushes Is that in the ordinary posi tion near a fire It Is most directly ex posed to tho rays of heat while most of the body Is shielded by clothing that tho nerves of the face are particularly sensitive In this respect and that the skin there Is more abundantly furnished with blood vesselsLOndon Standard Art of Papermaking In the matter
