to keep him quiet, tho Judge replied:

Leading Opponent of Policy Praises
the System and Its Results. .
Tho American who dronda municipal
ownership for fear of Its being used
to crento pollticnl mnchlnory nnd rob
tho public nnd who dcclnrcs that wo
must first establish tho merit system
may be nstonlshcd, says a wrltor In
tho World To-Dny, when ho lenms tho
fixtcnt of tho development of llrlllsh
municipal trading under theso condi
tions. Seeking to lenrn "tho other sldo" of
municipalization In Gicat Itrltatn, tho
investigator Is nt every turn referred
to Arthur Kay, a distinguished citizen
of Olnsgow nnd head of the groat mer
chandising house of Arthur & Co., ns
tho arch enemy of municipalization.
Ho is president of the Citizens' union
and tho Taxpayers' federation. When
asked, "Do you think Glasgow should
own and operato its trains 7" ho an.
swered: "Certainly. The owning nnd
operating of these tramways has been
highly prolltablo nnd thoroughly satis
factory, tho accounting Is correct and
nobody opposes It."
"But you think tho trnnis should bo
operated for profit in relief of rates?"
"Not at nil. They should bo run on
a low factor of safety, and profits bo
sunk In betterments or reduction oi
"But this is soclallsm7"
"Well, they call it socialism muni
cipal socialism."
And this from the mnn who was to
hnvo given tho final word against mu
nicipalization! In Groat Britain there
Is opposition, not to municipal owner
ship as such, but only to Its excesses
Frog Culture by Millions.
Tho cultivation of frogs Is a new In
dustry, but it can bo made profitable,
ns thero arc thousands of acres of
swampland In Pennsylvania, worth
less, which could be utilized. About
two million will be distributed In tho
stato. Some of tho applications re
ceived by tho department are very
amusing, nnd they will bo stored nwny
nmong the stnto archives. A Now Bed
ford applicant wants to know If tho
frogs "will flourish and do well in
ponds thnt havo been constructed for
fish, hut abandoned, or ponds that aro
mado to cut Ico off, ns they are fed
with clean water." A Brrndysvllle,
-Bucks county, farmer, asks for from
ten thousand to fifty thousand frogs
with which to stock Neshnminy Creek,
which, he snys, "seems to be run out
of fish, so let us have some bullfrogs."
A Tullytown mnn writes for a supply
to stock "our mlllponds with, aB they
aro excellent ponds for that purposes."
A Philadelphia man writes to know if
tho frogs are green, and "If they will
keep babies awake nights by their
croakings." A Clearfield county man
asks if the frogs aro "good eating,"
and whether thoy aro "real frogs or
only hoptoads." Pittsburg Chronicle.
What's in a Name.
Representative Olmsted of Penn
sylvania, says that old Dr. Levi Bull
was a clergyman of tho Episcopal
faith and lived In Chester county, his
stnto, not many years ago. Tho good
old doctor wns called upon to bap
tise n child, tho offspring of 11 family
with tho surnnmo of Frog. Without
nny preliminary observations tho
fnther and mother were called to tho
front at tho end of the second part or
lepson of tho service.
"Namo thiB child," said the doc
tor. "Wo name it after you, sir," said
tho mother, as she handed the baby
to tho doctor.
"Oh. but you r-amed the last after
me. It was was christened Levi," said
tho minister.
"Well, doctor, call this one after
your t'other namo."
And tho minister did, christening it
Dull, and tho youngster went forth
with tho cognomen of Hull Frog.

It Was Good Advice.
The man laughed uproariously. "I'm
a pretty healthy looking specimen, am
I not, doctor?" ho asked.
"You certainly are," answered tho
"Well, ten years ago you told me to
prepare for death."
"Did I?"
"You did."
"Well. I bee no reason to be hilari
ous about it. That's good advice, at
any time, Isn't It?"
"Yes, but "
"Doesn't your preacher give you tho
same advice?"
"Of course, but you sec "
"Well, why don't you go and laugh
at him? 1 did only my duty by you,
and from what I know of you, I would
say that 1 can't think of any one who
has moro extended preparations to
make. Good day, sir."
"Sometimes," mused the mnn as ho
went out, "It Is easy to make a point
and difficult to clinch It."

Miss Rose Hennessy, well known as
a poetess and elocutionist, of Lexington,
Ky., tells how she was cured of uterine
inflammation and ovaritis by the use of

DKAn Wns. Pinkham : I have been so blessedly helped through the tiso
of Lydia 12. Pinkhnm'H Vegetable. Compound thnt I feel it hut just to
acknowledge it, hoping that It may help somo other woman HuffcrluR' as I did.
" For years I enjoyed tho best of health ami thought that I would always
do so. I attended parties nnd receptions thinly clad, nnd would lie suddenly
chilled, but I did not think of tho results. I caught a bad cold eighteen
months ago while menstruating, and this caiibcd inflammation of tho womb
and congested ovaries. I suffered excruciating pains and kept getting worse.
My attention was colled to your Vegetable Compound nnd tho wonderful
cures it had performed, and I made up my mind to try It for two months and
boo what it would do for me. Within ono month I felt much hotter, and
at tho close of tho secoud I was entirely well.
"I have advised n number of my lndy friends to use it, nnd all express
themselves as well satisfied with tho results as I wns." Miss Hose Noiia.
IIknnksbv, 410 S. Hroadway, Lexington. Ky.

women of America go to prove beyond u question that I.ydlaE.
Pinkliiim'H Vegetable Compound will correct all Htich trouble nnd
nt onco, by removing tho cause, and restoring tho organs to a
normal and healthy condition.
"Dkaii Mna. Pinkham: About two yearn ugo I consulted aphy
fiician about my health which lintl become bo wretched that I Avas no
longer able to bo about. I had sovoro backache, bearing-down pains,
pains across tho abdomen, was very nervous and irritable, and thia
trouble grew worso each month. Tho physician prcsorilKjd for mo, but
I soon discovered that ho was unablo to help me, and I thon docided to
try Lydia E. Pinkham'H Vegctablo Compound, and soon found that
it was doing mo good. My appotito was returning, tho pains disappear
ing, and tho general benenta wero well marked.
" You cannot realize how pleased I was, and after taking the mcdl
cino for only three months, I found that I was completely cured of my
trouble, and havo been well and hearty ever siucc,and no moro fear tho
monthly period, as it now passes without pain to me. Yours very truly,
Miss Pkahl Aokeiis, 327 North Summer St., Nashville, Tenn."
