Take the Census.
We would suggest to the Commercial
Club that it would not be a bad idea
to have a census of the city taken.
The secretary of the school board takes
the census of the school district each
year, and with a little extra work he
could take the complete census of the
eily. However, as there is no pay pro
vided for the extra work, it is up to
the club or the eily council to make
this provision. L. . Port, city clerk,
says he believes Ued Cloud now has a
population of over 2.000.

Tlio Old Time trie of Torture In I.crl
The constitution of the Untied Stales
and the constitutions of the various
states In prohibiting cruel and unusual
punishments were int fighttng an ab
surdity. The use of torture In logul
processes was not, when these Instru
ments were framed, so remote as It is
When Sir Thomas Dole came as high
marshal to Virginia he crushed a con
spiracy by killing the ringleaders by
torture. One had a bodkin thrust
through his tongue and was chained
to a tree until ho died. Others were
broken on the wheel. It is quaintly
stated that Sir Thomas was "a man
of good conscience and knowledge In
divinity." Dole's date was 1011.
The next notable Instance of tho use
of torture was in Ki!)2, In the Salem
witchcraft excitement, when Olios
Cory was pressed to death the "peine
dure ot forte," the most horrible of
Kxecutlons were In public through
out the east until comparatively recent
times. When Quelch, the pirate, and
six others wore-hanged In l'oston, Sew
all wrote in his diary, "When the scaf
fold was let to sink there was such a
screech of the women that my wifo
heard it, sitting In our entry next to
the orchard," though the gallows was
a mile away and the wind unfavorable.
The use of torture to wring tho truth
from witnesses Is said to have boon rec
ognized as legal in Austria until well
within the century.
Ther Keep Their Ekk In Nataral
Pocket In Their Moatlm.
In tho sea of Galilee, or Lake Tibe
rias, as it is also called, there is a
strange fish named the Chromls slino
nls, which Is more careful of Us youug
than flsh generally are. The male
takes the eggs in Ids mouth and keeps
them in his natural side pockets, where
they are regularly hatched and remain
until able to shift for themselves. By
this Ingenious arrangement the brood
is comparatively guarded against Its
natural enemies. It Is easily fed, too,
but It Is a puzzle how the little ones
escape being eaten alive. Awhile ago,
says a traveler writing to a religious
eoutpinnorury, I found In my net a
number of these tlsh without eyes.
Others of the species, when I lifted
them up, dropped a number of little
Hshes out of their mouths, which swam
away hastily. Tho natives explained
the phenomenon. The blind chromls
Is the victim of sea hawks. When
these birds have eaten their till they
begin to look out for tidbits. After
catching a flsh they hit its forehead
with their sharp beak, knocking out
tins middle part, in which their eyes arc
set. The bony structure Is dropped
into the water, but the eyes tire eaten
by tho birds with great relish.
Strangely enough, the tisli generally
survive tills rough treatment. The
wound heals up quickly In water, and
they continue to ply the lake for food
as If nothing had happened. London
Why Timothy Grass Is So Cnlleil.
The forage grass known to the farm
ers of the raited States as timothy Is
so called because first Introduced and
extensively cultivated in this country
by oue Timothy Hanson, a farmer of
Maryland. This species of grass is
well known In England and all over
western continental Europe, whore It
Is grown extensively by most farmers
between the Mediterranean and the
North seas. The botanical name of this
grass Is Phloum pratense. Timothy Is
known in the Hritish isles as cat's'tall
grass and' In several of our eastern
states as herd, or herd's, grass. It was
grown Jh large quantities In Maryland
and Pennsylvania long before a spear
of It had ever been seen In England,
the llrst seed of It ever seen In the last
named country being Imported from
The "If" In Ituther Ininorlniit.
Here's something that may save
your life when a bull gets after you:
When a bull charges, just before tho
final lurch he shuts his vyes, and If
you have the presence of mind to
stand stock still until he is about two
or three feet from you all you have to
do Is to step aside, and he misses you.
Any child with sufficient presence of
mind to do this can let a bull charge
all day with perfect safety. TLib is
not a new thing, as It Is one of tho se
crets of the bullfighter In tho coun
tries whore tho sport is practiced. Tho
bullfighters say that a cow does not
do this, and they would never try any
such tricks with a mad cow.

The animal, delighted with Its finery,
showed its glee by so many little
squeaks and kicks of pleasure that gen
eral attention was attracted to it.
Not long after another state proces

wearer of the gold cloths, being re
stored to health, took his accustomed
place and trappings, when tho now de
graded beast, imagining, perhaps, that
he was being defrauded of his promo
