DOUBLE ENTRY AS HE KNEW IT. j -X-:-4-M-H--H-H-- Invention of Frenchman Discovers Subterranean Streams. A rational device for finding under zrnuu'l currents of water has been In vented by .a Frenchman named Div ert. It was siiKsested by the Instru-' mont known as Das'iin's acoustele a devleo for the analysis of sounds, look ini; somewhat like a nwgaphone. To use it a holn about a foot deep is Bunk the earth and the lare end of tho horn Is placed In It, tubes attached to the small end being Inserted In the ears. If there Is underground running water anywhere In tho vicinity it may be heard plainly, the sound resembling that of the wind in a forest. Still wa ter, of course, ciinnot be detected. Ex periments with this Instrument near known subterranean streams have suc ceeded well, but it does not appear that It has ever discovered any hither to unsuspected stream.

Visitor's Speech Dealt with Frankly by Youthful Critic. Princess Lwoff Parlanhy, the Hun garian painter, was asked In Philadel phia to address a women's club on portrait painting a subject that would have much Interest, for the artist has done portraits of the kaiser, the czar and others celebrities. Hut she declined to deliver the ad dress. "I cannot speak Impromptu,"" she said, "and what Is more wearisome than a speech read from notes? "A friend of mine once Bpoke before a class of school children on literature. She had spent a week writing the speech. She read It to the little ones, as sne Hoped, witn great success. "But the next day she beard that a boy, on being asked by his mother what had happened at the school, re plied carelessly: "'Oh, nothing much, except a lady talked to herself on a piece of paper.' " Jim's Simple System That, Strange to Say, Caused Discontent. Jim Saunlers, the veteran oystpr dnaler of the village, wm mad. His honesty had never before been im peached. He stood In the open door way of his one-room shanty down near th station, catching each passer-by In turn and pouring Into his ear a re hearsal of his woes. The country doc tor was the nineteenth by actual count who had passed that way since early moini:r. Jim drew himsplf up proudly and wiping tho tobacco Juice out of the corners of his mouth with his coat si "eve, answered, stoutly: "Taln't, doctor 'taln't that. I keeps double entry jes like all the storekeepers hereabouts, I reckon, and I never overcharges." The doctor smiled quizzically. "What do you understand by double entry bookkeeping, Jim?" Jim stared at the doctor, astonished, his big slothful brown eyes opening wide as he ran his hand through his shock of whitening brown hair. "Well, do tell, doctor, don't you know? An' you a college man! Why, man, It's jest as simple as rollln' off a log. A man comes along and asks fer orschers, and you gives 'em to 'lm, and ef he don't put the money down on the counter, then, you charges him up In the book for uO days. Then ef he don't pay up In 30 days, or, say, six weeks, you puts him down in the book again. There ain't that slmpl??" Geo. E. Dovey, President. H. F. E. Schlateh, Vice Pres. C, N. Dovey, Cashier G.

The grapes were very fresh sweet. "These must be hothouse grapes," said the guests. Hut the host pointed from the win dow toward his gray garden, where, sheathed In Ice, a leafless vine shiv ered In the blast. "The grapes came from that vine," he said, "two months ago." "Hut how have you kept them so fresh?" "I'll tell you the secret. When 1 want to keep my grapes I cut each bunch with a long stem, with quite eight Inches of stem. Then I take a lot of wide-mouthed bottles and fill them with water. Then I hang the grape bunches In the cellar, their long stems each in a bottle, taking caro that tho grapes themselves are In con tact with nothing (that would rot them), and that the stems are burled deep in the water. They keep so for Ave or six months. I can keep so a hundred bunches all winter without losing a bunch." Interest Paid On Time Deposits. Burglars Last Night. Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Petersen attend ed ciiurvh last evening, and in their aW-nce festive burglar entered their rtwklen.ee by climbing the back porch mj ruuui-u ineni ti someming over $24.00 in the coin of the realm.

Russell has resigned as sex ton of the Union church In the town of Phillips, and he Is probably the dean of Maine sestons. And for all these services he has never accepted a cent In payment. All the old Phillips families of his time have been greeted by the sound of the bell rung by Mr. Russell's steady hand, and when the last scens of ell came It was Mr. Russell who sounded the knell. In those days there was a custom to signalise the departure of each member of the church by tolling the bell at Intervals of about 30 seconds to the number ol the departed's years, and on many occasions Mr. Russell has been called from his warm bed to climb the steeple In all sorts of weather. Pure Iron at Last. Chemically pure iron has never been obtained until very recently; It has been found almost impossible to re move the last traces of Impurities, es pecially of sulphur. Hut a German chemist, Dr. 11. Kreusler, has finally, by a long series of ingenious pro cesses, partly chemical and partly electrical, succeeded In IsolatlnR the pure metal, the properties of which he reports to differ greatly from those of the Impure Iron that we know. Iron prepared by Krcusler's process resem bles platinum. So Tired. He was the laxlest tramp that ever waited at the water tank for a south bound freight. "Pardner," he drawled when a young man passed that way, "got any tobacco?" "Guess so," responded the youth, fumbling In his pocket and pulling forth a bag of mixture. "Got any cigarette papers?" "A few." "Well, make me a cigarette, that's a good fellow." With a few desirous twists the HtrnKr handed over the "coffin nail." The tramp yawned. "Say, pardner," he said, finally, "would yer mind puffing dat dope an" blowing do smoke In my face? I feel awfully tired too tired to smoke." During Gun Firing. The Hrltish admiralty has Riven at tention to the question of ear protec tion during heavy gun lirliii;, and it has been decided to use plasticine. with the addition of cotton wool, but tho form of ear protection to he use:! Is to be left to tho Individual clioice of officers and men. Plastb-lne iu;iy bo supplied to ships and gunnery schools If specially demanded. The addition of 50 to 60 grains of cotton wool ha;; been recommended to Insure perfect safety. It Is pointed out that the cost of the material Is very small and Its use Is often desirable.
