A Good Day's Work.
One day last wcok Frank Donge
went out to his corn field near town
and on a wager, that ho could not
shuck 150 bushels in ten hours, not
only gathered In tho 150 bushels but
put four more with It for good meas
ure, shucking 80 bushels in the first
five hours and seventy-four in the
succeeding fivo hours. When It is con
sidered that this was done In corn that
was yielding only about thirty bushels
to tho acre most people will agree
that Is was a pretty good stunt but
Mr. IJongo is very modest about it
and says there nre a number of other
corn shuckers In the country who can
do as woll or better. Wallace, Winner.

SEE US ABOUT STORAGE.
If you live in town where you can stoie your car in a steam heated garage, you
can rest assured that it will pay you to do so. It will save you many dollars in a few
months on your storage battery alone. Then again, when you start your car in a cold
garage the engine will not be properly lubricated for several minutes while your car
is warming up and this will wear out the bearings.

Columbus Rejoiced Over Belief That
Natives He Found In America
Would Make Good Christians.
. Columbus lnndcd on a small island,
"one of tho Lucnyes, cnlled In the In
dian language Guannlmnl," the intrepid
nnvlgntor afterward wrote. Later the
Island was called San Salvador, and
now Is known as Watling's Island.
There was discovered in Spain In
1S25 the manuscript supposed to be
Las Casas' abridgement of Columbus'
Journal of his first voyage to America,
and from this we have some Interest
ing detnils of the actual circumstances
surrounding the discovery of the new
The people of the island straight
way collected together when Colum
bus landed, according to this journal.
Here follow his precise words :
"As I saw that they were very
friendly to us and perceived that they
could be much more easily converted
to our holy faith by gentle menns than
by force, I presented them with some
red caps nnd strings of bends to wear
upon the neck nnd many other trifles
of small value, wherewith they were
much delighted and became wonder
fully attached to us."
Columbus comments that the people
appeared to him to be very poor be
cause they went about naked. He
noted that nil the natives he saw were
young, none being above thirty years,
and that all of them had fine physique
nnd short, straight hair. He believed
they were from the continent nnd was
of the opinion that they would make
good Christians, as they appeared to
have no religion at all.

HAS FAD FOR COLLECTING
Anything Odd or Curious, San Fran
cisco Man Is Eager to Add to
"I met a man in San Francisco who
Goes In for collecting odd things on a
largo scale," said a traveler. "He has,
to begin with, several ropes which
have been used to hung celebrated
criminals. In the same room are a
number of 'menus obtained from hotels
In various parts of the world. Ho
places considerable value on several
corks which have been pulled from the
bottles of wine used on tho tables of
well-known persons, and a dozen book
dedications are considered an Impor
tant feature of the collection. Some
ot tho autographs in the collection
arc highly prized because they re
quired tho expenditure of not a smnll
sum or money and quite a little time.
During his travels In foreign lands tho
collector picked un the thlch
a Syrian giant, n chameleon of Bar-
wary, a great African lizard and a
roso which wns said to bo 100 vmp
old. Ho even turned his attention tii
beans, nnd has ten Chinese beans
which are not familiar to the people
of this country."

Why Prices Rise.
This Is an actual occurrence In Co
lumbus. A woman who bad occasion
to use n common drug In mnklng a
homo preparation, bought n pound of
it nt a drug store. She had often
bought It for seven cents a pound, but
this time wns charged 22 cents.
"How is that?" she asked the pro
prietor. "I never pnld more than seven
cents n pound for that anywhere be
fore." "But," expostulated the druggist,
"prices have gone wny up. Why, I hnve
to pay seven cents n pound for that
myself!" Columbus Dispatch.
Amerlcnn soldiers sppnk of the
louse ns a "cootie." The French fight
er calls it a "toto," nnd the British a
"coddler." Among all the nnnles the
pests nre known ns "trench rabbits"
or "seam squirrels." The significant
thing Is that never nre thoy called
lice. The soldier has the same horror
of vermin thnt he had In clvillnn life,
and the very name "louse" carries the
suggestion of degradation.
