A Vermont druggist, sentenced

he only intended to sell them grain

What makes wealth is continuous
production in a country where raw
material is abundant. One indus
trial statistician who lias an in
ternational reputation concerning
industrial production, was applied
to by a big firm in New orK. i ne
following was the reply received:
"Although we possess only 7 per

The Springfield (Mo.) Leader re
ports that Kmil Kromer, a tool ex
pert of the Frisco Railroad shops,
has been granted a patent for his
invention which is a new boring
tool to be used in boring out engine
cylinders and air pump pistons in
locomotives. Its chief advantage is
that, it can be used without dis
sembling the parts of the locomo
tive which are to be bored, it being
so licht in construction and so bal
anced that it can be moved to the
engine and operated successfully
without removing the cylinders and
carrying them to the machine as
has been necessary with the boring
tool now in use.
Hawker and Grieve hopped off in
to what has ben described as "the
greatest sporting adventure in all
history." They lived to experience
every sensation the adventure prom
ised except actual success and act
ual death. Their disaster brought
them down to a very intimate view
of the latter. Their rescue brought
them back to a welcome and a place
of honor high above anything a
mere flight across the Atlantic
could have afforded, even though
the first successful flight i3 yet to
be made. Half of the prize for
which they flew has been accorded
them; in place of the half they lost,
tbey will have their names written
along with that of Columbus. And
plenty of glory remains for the man
who actually succeeds in making
the Trans-Atlantic flight. No hu

prize so well In advance.

The "hammer" is the implement
of the artisan and the sound of the
saw and hammer is music in a pro
gress ve town, but many towns are
non-progressive because the ham
mer is used in excess, not alwavs
constructively, but destructively
better put that little hammer away
for awhile and let something happen.
The matter of "show me" in Mis
souri, is not always required, for in
the little town of Cordonville, the
town board who are keeping abreast
of the times, have sold their city
jail for ninety dollars, anticipating
the ushering in of national prohibi
tion at an early date and consider
ed they would in the future not
have any use for a jail. The man
who purchased it, Henry W. . Mack
will use it as a storage room. Un
bounded faith in national law has
evidently superceded the "show me."
Conservation seems to have ran
riot with some people. It is told of
a young lady who had supervision
over the kitchen supplies of her
home who, when a hail storm came
which destroyed the wheat crop,
ruined the oats, put the corn on the
blink, stripped the trees of their
fruit and leaves, killed much young
stock, on account of the size of the
hail stones, ran out and gathered
up what she could so as to save
them for freezing ice cream, that
nothing be lost that could be turned
to use. Pretty good girl, eh!
It is reported that an up,-state
physician, who is also a piscatorial
artist, always with a view of "Safe
ty First" parried a pocket scale
with him to verify a catch which
he might make while plying the
rod and line. He did not wish to
exaggerate his fish stories, and he
always weighed all he caught. One
time he chanced to be called to a
place where storkship was also
making a visit and on the arrival of
the new Nebraskan, there being
nothing to weigh him with the fish
er physician pulled out his scales to
weigh the baby and judge to the
surprise of all present when on his
scales the young man tipped the
beam to 42 pounds.
A VIGILANCE COMMITTEE
FOR BAD DRIVING
The Star invites attention to the
letter from Mr. K. (. MofTatt, pub
lished yesterday afternoon, suggest
ing the formation of a citizens"
vigilance committee to report and
deal with infractions of the traflic
rules.- The careless or reckless
motor car driver is a menace not
only to the owners of ears, but to
the tens of thousands of passengers
who ride in them every day.
The police force can cover only n
small part of the city. I5ut if
motorists generally were organized
into an association for dealing with
the improvement of trafilc condi
tions, they could cover the city
thoroughly and virtually put an end
to dangerous driving. The person
who never thinks of reporting a
reckless driver under present condi
tions would make it' a point to re
port him If he belonged to the vigil

Yes, some are -dead, some are
alive and some ten years behind the
times, and what is the matter with
them. Well we have an idea that
it id because when some project in
advanced for the benefit of the city,
that some one is always placing an
obstruction in the way because they
think it will benefit someone they
do not like. Well now is not this
about the truth, you do not need
to say so in public if you do not
want to, but privately is not it so?
