sever teenth century Cheerfulness especial ly when it rose to laughter was to be guarded against Smiling might occa sionally be allowed still being a car nal pastime it was a sin to smile on Sunday No husband should kiss his wife and no mother her child on the Sabbath day Jesting was incompati ble with a holy and serious life The weepmgthe Rev Alexander Punlop was noted for his holy groan To engage in the frivolous art of writing poems was condemned Men should not disport themselves with music dancing was a serious sin joyousness even atachristening was a scandal One should speak and walk with gravity and so lemnity he should not enjoy his dip ner only the ungodly relished food The great object of life was to be in a state of affliction Whatever pleased the senses was to suspected Whatever was natural was wrong The church men grew sour in countenance harsh In voice Joy and love disappeared or were forced to hide in obscure corners MAN MONEY The Old Teutonic Law on Killing or Injuring Others The system of atoning for death or bodily injuries Inflicted on others by paying damages is as old as the earli est Teutonic laws praised by Tacitus The trespasser was always required to make peace with the aggrieved family of the victim by WerGeld Wer Is the ancient German for man Geld now as In the days of Wotan means money Damages were assessed In accord ance with the rank and wealth of the injured party and the money was paid over in the presence of the whole community its acceptance forestalling feuds Indeed the recognition of Wer Geld money for the man killed bylaw precluded further bloodshed or other forms of revenge If the slayer was not rich enough to pay the required sum he turned over to the injured parties his sons as slaves If his sons were not sufficient guarantee for the payment of the debt the slayer himself had to turn bondsman both the letter and the spirit of the law requiring that the full amount of damage Inflicted he recovered by the aggrieved parties

Michigan Farmer Tells How to Maks Them With Gravel and Girders While we are busily talking about good roads we must not forget the most needful one is that which runs from the gate to the barns atad over Which we travel many mlles during the year At the time I moved to Ma pleslde farm a few years ago the mud was hub deep for the horses and no better for the men on the footpaths says D C Dean a Michigan farmer We moved to Mapleside farm in April and the women folks did not get to the barns until after the middle of May As soon as the crops were in those roads received my undivided attention until they were in a serviceable con ditionI not draw in more dirt to soak up but began at the bottom by plow ing out and removing over a foot of the soil I then opened a gravel bank and drew fn enough to fill that taken out Next I made arrangements for some cinders and put them over the gravel about a foot thick This an swered very well that season but In the fall before the mud began to deeo en I covered the road again and dur ing the wlnfer all the coal ashes were spread wherever there seemed to be a low spot By following this scheme for four years I succeeded In making a road that never has any mud If I find a low spot where water stands after a rain It is taken care of at once On the south side of the house three years ago I built a road that has not required any repairing as yet beyond drawing three loads of gravel last spring For this road I pursued a lit tle different method It was old sod so I plowed through Itand turned the sod upside down three deep on either side of the road then drew out all the dirt beneath that was loose and easy to handle This left me a trench about eighteen Inches or two feet to fill which I did from my gravel bank and no cinders were put on this road as I could not get them This roadway is about nine inches above the sawn on either side and never gets muddy About the house ore cement platforms and walks while the roadway on either side is so hard it can be swept at any time I find It pays when you are at Itto make a good road and takes no longer I find a gravel bank about the best bank I can patronize when it comes to roadmakiug ROLLING GOOD FOR ROADS Auto Found Serviceable In Making Street Passable After Snows The man who brings together the best productions in different lines and obtains results which better his own production may not be an Inventor in the true sense of the word but he cer tainly possesses good common sense In Vermont and other New England states a road roller is used in the win ter to pack down the snow and make the roads passable By doing this aft er each snowstorm a really fine winter road results The method used in up per New York Is to draw two large iron kettles such as are used foMhe making of soft soap behind a team of horses or oxen This is not very per feet as it leaves a core In the road and simply pushes the snow to the side of the road Instead of packing it down After a recent snowstorm In Read ing Pa in which the roads were left in bad condition H L Hardy the de- sIgner at a factory conceived the Idea of rolling the roads He attached an ordinary land roller to the front of a sextuplet and started from the factory to the home of Mr Sternbergh Natu rally he did not try to break any speed records bu the trip about six miles was made in one hour One of the road commissioners of Berks county accompanied him and was much surprised to see what an improvement this roller process was over the kettle drag Mr Hardy says he wIll not patent or copyright this idea so

AMERICAN LEAGUE TEAMS Every Club Has One or More Batters LjjWho Are Feared by Qppos f lfIng Pitchers Every ball club in the American league has one or two batters who are always feared by the opposing pitch era They are the men whom the plateSin a pinch t Detroit has a quartet of men in Cobb Crawford Rossman and Mcln tyre who can swat the ball but Cobb and Crawford are most feared Craw ford is the slugger of the bunch and la liable to break up a game with a home run as often as with a single or double Cobb is feared not only 0n account of his ability to hit but also because of his great speed after be gets on the sacks While Cleveland I has several hitters who are liable to break tip the game at any time no one is feared more than Lajoie When the big second sacker assumes his position at the plate the pitcher begins to worry and incidentally puts every thing In stock on the ball George Stovall Harry Bemis and Elmer FrIck also look pretty nifty to the big league twirlersBullet Jack Thorney of Boston was the most touted man on the Red Sox team but no one was more respected bythe heavers than Doc Qegsler Against Washington Gesmler was par ticularly destructive winning four games fromthe Senators whoa it looked as if Cantillons bunch was sure u h Jake Stehl managed to win a few games by timely bitting Jim Delehanty did the best work for the Washington team with the big stick while Charley Hemphill of the Highlanders and lebell of Chicago were the two players on their teams most feared Anderson and Laporte batted well against St Louis and Fielder Jones while not a good hitter always had the faculty of working a pitcher George Stone of St Louis wasnt so dangerous last year but nev grttieless all twirlers were happy when Stone was disposed of and on the bench Roy Hartzell came into his own and while subbing at short for Wallace his timely hitting was the means of sending the locals to the top Big Criss was the batting kid for St Lour last year and strangely enough his greatest work was done as a pinch hitter for he seldom broke into a game as a regular Wallace Williams t and Ferris broke up many games but Tom Jones failed to shine in the pinches r While Harty Davis of the Athletics is the slugger of Connie Macks crew since Sox Seybold went out of com mission young Eddie Collins proved about as troublesome as any of the Philadelphians last year

Decrease In Grid- Iron Accidents According to Dr Edward H Nichols medical adviser of the athletic teams at Harvard there has been a remark able decrease In all varieties of in juries on the gridiron since the rev vision of the football rules of 1906 Dr Nichols has made an exhaustive sudy of the subject at Cambridge and his report is published in the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal He has had the cooperation of Dr Frank L Richardson who was his assistant at Harvard last fall The recapitulation ot injuries to football players at Harvard for the test four seasons shows that there were more injuries by 32 in 1905 the last season under the old rules than in the three seasons combined under die revised code which speaks well for the game as now played This ta ble gives the details 1906 1906 1907 1903 75NumberThe report shows that there were five varieties of injury common prior to 1906 that have decreased materially in number since the game was opened up and the general style of play changed In 1905 11 men dislocated the end of the shoulder while there were only two injuries of this kind in 1806 one in 1907 and five last fall the most serious being the one which kept Capt Burr oa the side lines in the Yale game In 1905 ten players received Injuries dislocating semilunar cartilages there being only one instance of this in 1905 and two last fall There were 12 ankles sprained at Harvard in 1905 as many as have been sustained dur ing the last three seasons altogether Twelve cuts requiring dressings were sustained la 1965 there being four of these the following season nine in 1907 and only two In 1908 In 1905 there were 19 cases of concussion There were five in 1906 five also in 1907 and only thred in 1908 P tII1 Joe Jeanette knocked out Ben Tay lor of

Play Around the Shores of Brittany Dolphin hunting as a sport IB old to the Malouins the inhabitants of St Halo Several species of dolphins are to be met with near the shores of Brit tany The largest Is known to science as Delphlnus delphis and differs from Bother Varieties by Its long Jaws very like the beak pf a big bird and armed with about sixty teeth as hard and sharp as steel Its length may teach nine feet and it weighs from SOO to 400 pounds A swift swimmer it preys on the schools pf herrings fol lowing them right up to the Scottish waters In spite of its greed it is noted for Its mild temper and fre quently amuses itself by playing around ships in the open sea Then there is the Delphinus tursio or souf fleur This Is smaller and Its beak is shorter though armed with strong powerful teeth that enable It to attack big fish pinning it down to the rocks with such force that its nose Is often deeply marked with numerous cuts This dolphin hates the very sight of a ship and never comes close to one Finally there Is the porpoise or mar couin the smallest species of the genus Much sport may be obtained by hunting these various dolphins Wide World Magazine HIS It Was the Cause of Airing Family Secrets In Public A young man was riding In an omni bus He took the corner seat and held in his band an umbrella which had been given him as a birthday present On the seat facing him was a lady with a precocious boy evidently about five years old The youngster regarded the young man with attention for a few moments and then his eyes wandered to the umbrella He gazed at it in silence

excelled others in the use of the sling and the clingers of an ancient army used their little weapons with terrible effect These natives have such skill says one old historian that it very rarely

TUESDAY FEBRUARY 16 1909 THE ENORMOUS COST t There are but few who advocated and none who voted in Congress for the Panama Canal who dreamed for a moment to what an enormous sum the building of the canal would fin allyswell If the engineers had placed the cost at 400000000 the building would have been postponed for a generation or two longer Of course the very best experts in ilie country examined the plans of the canal a estimated its ultimate cost tut it is impossible to figure accur ately in a job of this kind No man can see below the surface and no one engineer or not could tell just what the ground under the surface was and How difficult the digging icSeveral Senators have recently projected themselves into r the lime light by advocating a change in the plan from a lock to a sea level canal ai some newsoapers have taken up the controversy But Judge Taft after his recent trip to the isthmus with many engineers came out flatly foithd lock canal so that we feel confident that thatpktn will be fol lowed Lieutenant Colonel George W fo thals who has charge of the work on the isthmus in testifying before Jthe House Committee of Appropriations gave it as his opinion that bye time the canal was finished the cpsirtb the United States would ap proximate 375000000 He gave it as his judgment as an engineer that a sea level canal would cost in excess of 400fco000 Goethals told the committee mOreover that the lock canal could be completed and in op eration Tiy January 1 1915 and that it would take six years longer to build sea level canal His personal judg ment after two years spent on tie isthmus in charge of the work was that the lock plan would prove to be jfeasible and satisfactory Jfrom the fact that Taft and- joethals are favorable to the lock canal there is little question but that such will be built pf course the enormous increase i inv jost over the first estimate mikes the problem of the canals ever pay ing interest on the investment more r mote than

Distance In Rifle Shooting leA bullseye Is a bullseye Is an ex pression frequently used in connection with rifle shooting but those unfa miliar with military rifle practice as at present conducted have little con ception of what is meant by a bullseye on the regulation targets The ranges at which shooting now takes place are 200 300 500 600 800 900 and 1000 yards For these ranges three targets are employed The first Is target A which Is used at 200 and 300 yards It is six feet tall and four feet in width with a in the center eight inches in diameter This Is surrounded by a circle twentysis inches in diameter Another circle is fortysix inches in diameter The bullseye counts 5 a shot in the inner circle 4 In the outer circle 3 and on the remainder of the target 2 The B target which Is used at 500 and 600 yard is six feet square It has a twenty Inch bullseye and the first circle Is thirtyseven inches and the second circle fiftythree inches in diameter Tho value of the spots is the same as on the A target The C targefls used at 800 900 and 1000 yards This Is rectangular in shape being six feet high and twelve feet long It is divided into three sec tions by vertical lines three feet from each end In the center Is a thirtysix Inch bullseye surrounded by a fifty four inch circle A shot in the bulls eye counts 5 between the bullseye and the rim of the circle 4 anywhere out side of the circle but within the six fOdtsquarc3r and at either end of the target but outside of the square the shot counts 2 points Philadelphia Record WHO OWNS THE AIR Ancient Legal Maxim Says Man Owns Land Up to the Sky It Is still a moot point whether or not the flying of airships over private property may be opposed by due process of lath In England there Is an ancient max im embodied In the English common law which saysuHe who owns the land owns It up to skies This venera ble rule a legal authority points out is as good today as ever it was and is full of menacing significance to the airship bullderIThe effect of this rule Is to give the owner of sand the exclusive right to the free enjoyment of the air over and above the four corners of his holding and any interference with that enjoy ment however apparently slight and harmless constitutes a trespass for which an action may be brought Applications for injunctions against airship owners and actions for trespass by aggrieved landowners are not un likely proceedings in the near future New York Sun How She Solved It There was something about the face of the stranger who sat opposite to her in the tram car that was familiar

Woods MeasureIColumbus O Feb 17 The house ef representatives under a suspen sion of the rules passed the general appropriation bill setting aside 7 H507927 for state departments and institutions Such expeditious handling of an appropriation bill is without recent precedent In fact when Judge Winters leader of the Democratic mi nority in the house sought delay and Basked whether the Republicans in harge of the bill were not pressing things unprecedentedly Chairman Ritter of the finance committee was unable to cite a precedent He point edout however that never before had such a bill been prepared within three weeks time The measure went through as offered by the committee There was a little debate on the question of canal improvements but the big appropriations for these pub lic works aggregating 330000 were left undisturbed Representative Carr belli of Cuyahoga and Representative- FIson of Tuscarawas led in opposing the big allowance claiming that the money would be spent fruitlessly The bill is unique among appropria tion measures iii that there is prO- vision for but one new building at a state institution The amount for thisis only 37500 and the Girjs Industrial school near Delaware gets the structurep Chairman Ritter of the finance com mittee in pointing out the features of the bill explained that revenues for the coming year would be aI proximately 7000000

partments are to be put in active and effective operation Heretofore they have had heads but few or no assistants to carryon the big work planned for them The sum of 129250 is given the new
