At four years old she won. tha name

every man in barracks picked the kid

"Poor little gal!" as he sat her down.
It was about four years later that
Sergt Brady received what -was

eight years a sergeant, and he was a

Conscientious Man Thought Unusually

From Thinking Straight.
"The most conscientious man I ever

the Jurors were imprisoned in a hotel
during the trial. At our flrst dinner
the man with a conscious refused to

if it takes halt doien cooks to pre

be fewer freak verdicts in this town.
"There waa so much sound sense In

Mitigate Heat and Cold and Check
Tendency of Earth to Exces
Forests contribute to the general
health by breaking tha force of stead
ily blowing winds. They mitigate the
heat of summer by the vast amount
of evaporation that occurs in their
leaves by day. By night the corre
sponding condensation of moisture up
on the leaves still further absorbs the
heat on the evaporation of the mois
ture the next morning. They also pro
mote rainfalls. Thus they check the
tendency of the earth to too great
dryness, which Is almost aa injurious
to health as it is to vegetation, for
epidemic diseases are sure to do their
fatal work where the soil-water is be
low the ordinary standard.
Hence cholera often passes a wood
ed district and revels In a treeless
one. There ara numerous facts like
the following: A certain road in In
dia leada tor sixty miles through a
dense forest Further on It runs for
ninety mUes through a barren plain.
Hundreds of persons travel the entire
road daily. Now, in the first or wood
ed section, cases of cholera seldom
occur, while within the latter it has
been of frequent occurrence. One year
cholera raged In Allahabad. Soldiers
whose barracks were on a hill suffered
the most from the epidemic; those In
barracks surrounded by four rows of
trees much less; but not a single case
occurred among the soldiers whose
barracks were In a thicket It
the same the next year.
Lure of the Author.
One wonders why so many novels
are written. Yet consider the state

the play adapted from "Ben-Hur."
They have paid $250,000 in royalties
to the estate of Its author and expect
to pay much more before the public
tires of it The bock itself has had
a sale of over a million copies, neve;
in a cheap form, and has pmbabl
earned another quarter of a million
for the author.
