Better Buy Spanker.
We understand that a petition is be
ing circulated which will be presented
to the town council asking the passage
of curfew ordinance. In towns where
the curfew law has been tried it is
looked upon more as a joke than any
thing else. The parents who cannot
control their own offspring ought not
expect the town officials to herd
them up at a certain hour each night
and send them home. The council had
better buy a few patent "spankers"
and present them to the parents who
cannot keep their children off the
streets after 9 p. m. A cerfew bell or
whistle has no terror for the average
young American of today. Tabor (la.)

NOT OF MUCH USE FOR EITHER, i
Stove Too Large for Chapel and Too
Small for Cemetery.
The heating of churches In winter
was by no means general In the early
(lays of New Knglaud, the warmth and
fervor of the orhiieis' piety supply
ItiK to some degree the lack of bodily
For some years after lis erection
there was no means of heating the
little St. Augustine" chapel In South
Hoston, and Father Lynch, one of the
early pastors, often hud a very cold
rlile to the chapel In winter. He ac
cordingly suggested to the parishion
ers that a stove would be a alee thing
to have. The parishioners raised the
money aud bought the stove, which
was of generous size and quite large
euough to heat the whole chapel. In
fact, It was too large, for the men who
brought It were unable to get it In
through the door, and so they left It
Juiit outside in the ccpietery, where It
was standing when Father Lynch ar
rived the following Sunday morning.
He took In the situation at a glance
and said to the little group of parish
ioners who were shivering In the cold:
"Friends, I think you must have
misunderstood what I said last Sunday
ahout the stove. We want to heat the
chapel, and not the cemetery."
Rati' Cold Weather Retreat.
Many animals snuggle together for
warmth In bitter weather as the
squirrels and the rats. Those who go
ratting In hedges und dells In the win
ter know they may try a dozen fresh
ly used burrows without finding a rat
when suddenly from a single hole
the rats will come pouring out In a
stream of frenzied fur. Twenty or
more rats will be together In one
They are clever enough to block up
a hole on the windward side to keep
out the draught so that when a rat
hole is noted, newly stopped with soli,
turnip leaves or grass, here Is almost
certain Indication that rats are with
in. Like the squirrels they store food
for winter and the keeper may find
it more difficult to secure bis potatoes
from frost thun from the attack of
the most numerous of his furred foes.
A Leading Question.
Superintendent McLaren of San
Francisco's system of public parks was
inspecting the worlt of restoring I'nlon
square to Its former beauty, now that
the little St. Francis has been re
moved. "I'm for heavin' this tin out; It's a
bum little bush," remarked a garden
er with a brogue.
"Which one?" Inquired McLaren
"You don't mean this beautiful little
Scotch heather? All It needs Is more
water and It will grow as tall as you
"You're not so tall yourself, Mr. Mc
Laren." "Not extraordinarily so."
"I say, Mr. McLaren," reflected the
gardener, thoughtfully, "did you ever
try water yourself ?" San Francisco

ILL OMEN OF f PILLING SALT.
Superstition Hen Ccrrc Down to
from the Ancient Romans.
(litis m.d hoy a have all heard, per
haps, that It is "unlucky" to spill r-idf,
but thai the evil effect e. inny prohaMy
lie averted by throwing some of It
over your liyht '.boulder. It Is won

sliilons are! Thin one ahout the salt,
for example, ciliiie to us from Urn
ancient Kenians. Salt was regarded
by thein n-; an emblem of purltViillon,
and they always placed some on the
head of a victim in tacrlflco. If the
salt were spilled In doing this, It waa
looked upon as !'. bad omen.
It Is said that I be (tomans got the
custom iioiii 1 lie Jews, and after a
while the spilling of salt on any occa

custom of throwing a part of It over
the right shoulder arose from their
belief that anything pertaining to the,
right side was lucky, but to the left
All Germicidei Not Good.
Of late many count lies have been

germicides. As a result II Is declared
that the public should be careful In the,
selection of a disinfectant, for there

no germicidal act inn whatever. Prof.
Hewlett, as u result of his tests, says
that not only is the public defrauded,
but there Is also a giave danger Intro
