8ottled Dispute Concerning'
Ownership of Hans.
Magistrate Jcrmon anco spent a
lumincr in a llttlo town In South
Jersey and made tho acquaintance of '
a Justice of tho peace who hold moro
oinces than Pooh Bah himself. "Ho
waH," says Jormon, "a notary public,
a storekeeper, superintendent of tho
Sunday school, a lay preacher, post
master, coroner, a fnrmer and a few
moro things that I can't recnll now.
Ho wns a shrewd old fellow, as n
decision in ti caso that I heard will
go to show. Two farmers had n ills
puto about tho ownership of somo
poultry, and each pleaded his own
case. Each sldo hntl an equal num
hor of witnossos and thore was somo
tall swearing done nil round. If I had
been Bitting on the case I would have
given It up ns a bad job, or sent it to
court for trial, nut that's Just what
ho didn't do.
"I forgot to stato that In addition to
nil his other functions he was his own
constable. Tho hens were in court
In a coop nnd he ordered that a con
stable should take tho coop to tho
roadway opposite tho farms of the liti
gants and turn tho creatures loose.
And ho did tho job himself and got his
feo for doing it. Tho hens settled tho
caso by going directly to one of tho
farms, and tho Justice declared that
they know their way home, and gavo
Judgmont accordingly." Philadelphia
Virginia Statesman Makes Distinct
"Hit" at the Hub.
Senator John Warwick Daniel of Vlr
ginia was tho Hon of tho occasion at
tho recent dinner of the Boston Mer
chants' association. A Boston dally
declaros that "from the moment tho
company wns seated Mr. Daniel was
'the cynosure of all eyes.' A certain
power radiated from his finely cut
countenance and somehow It seemed
as though whoro ho sat there was tho
head of tho tablo. A genuine south
ron, a gentlomnn from Vlrglnln, of tho
old stock, nnd of clearest titlo to tho
much-abused 'F. F. V.,' with all tho
graces and outward marks of that dis
tinction. With Good Effect.
It was at a chamber concert by a
famous string quartet, says the Chica
go Journal, and the two lnrgo hatted,
chatty persons of tho matlnoo typo
who snt directly beforo tho music lov
ers wore so communicative as to their
affairs and thoso of all their acquaint
ances that the recital wns of small
pleasure to the appreciative and long
suffering couple directly In tho rear of
the convorsatlonallstt, "I am sorry
we could not have heard moro of your
conversation," the patient palo lovor
of music wroto on tho margin of his
program, "but tho violinist has Incon
siderately been making himself heard
from time to time. I am Bttre, how
over, If you speak a llttlo louder he
will understand nnd give way to you."
"I would llko to drop that In their
laps," he said, passing It to his com-"
panlon with a savago gleam in his
eye. "but I don't quite dare."
"1 do, then," said the mild-voiced
young woman at his side, and in somo
sudden nnd Inexplicable manner tho
PUPer appeared beforo the eyes of tho
voluble persons before her. They
looked wrathfully behind them, only
to encounter a row of immobile faces,
all oyes raptly regarding tho stugo.
Thoy glared to the right and to the
loft of them, with no more satisfac
tory results. Then they sulked, which
had the desired effect, and the remain-'
der of the evening was a distinct sue,
cess in their vicinity.

6ld to Depend Largely on Where
Seeds Come From.
An export nurseryman Bays tho
hardiness or nonhnrdlnesB of trees tie-
ponds largely upon where tho seeds
from which the trees in question
sprang came from. Satisfactory re-
suits Hro seldom experienced by
planting a seed obtained from the
Sunny South, say. IJy planting seeds
gradually further north, however,
trees may bo at length hardened nnd
acclimated until n seed from such n
treo may ho reasonably expected to
thrive nnd mature its fruits.
Trees, llko people, ncqulro their
habits from the climate In which they
live. Tho northern treo knows In-
Btlnctlvely when tho time has como
to ripen' its fruit. Tho southern treo
follows tho samo instinct, being in no
hurry, as thero is little likelihood of
real cold. With tranBplantings further
north its habits changes,
Tho great trouble with most people
Is that they want to Jump a treo
from South to North at one move.

tempt to bring .various fruit trees

Tight Clothes Cause Distress.
Somo of tho most emlnont physi
cians In tho world declare with em-
phnsls that tight gloves, shoes and i
clothing hnvo a tendency to cnuso
colds and a great deal of suffering
during tho winter, no matter how 1
warmly a person may be clad. Ho
says: "TiKht shoes on anyone's feet
will nrrest the circulation, and while,
of courHO, tho foot might not freeze.
It hns no chance to get warm, and
thus invites the cold, with a good pos
sibility of pneumonia stepping in to
clinrgo uj) moro trouble to the tight
shoes, Tho same thing Is true, though
in a lesser degree, of tight glovos on

cleverness among tho girls of to-day

of you If you are, and the other girls
hate you." The really clever women
are those who disguise their learn

Child Qlves New Facts About District
of Columbia.
Commissioner Macfarland was the
chief speaker at tho dedication of a
new public scbot.l building in tho
northern section of the city. Most of
tho pupils who wcro gathered in tho
big hall on tho first floor to sing tho
national anthoms and hear the ridvlco
of tholr elders were quite young, nnd
the commissioner undertook to amuso
them with a llttlo story of a former
experience In a Washington public
school. Thla is what ho said:
"Ono day I was visiting a certain
grade In a certain school, and tho
teachor thero was so kind as to ask
me to question tho children, so that
I could find out how much they know,
I didn't much relish bolng teacher
even for a few minutes, but, children,
you don't know what it Is to bo a corn-
mlssioner; I Just had to do it.
"Well, I Btood up in front, and I
" 'Who can tell mo how tho District
ot Columbia is governed?'
"It seemed as If tho question wero
too hard, and I was sorry I had asked
it, because tho teacher had been so
anxious to have her pupils 'show off'
before me. Then a llttlo bit of
girl raised her hand timidly.
'Well, how Is it governed, my lit
tle girl?' I asked, reassured.
" 'Please, sir, the District Is govern

them belongs to the engineer corpse.'

has been split up into various owner
ships, nnd before a drainage commls-

were abandoned. A drainage commis-
