Hugh A Orchard is a strong
representative of what the critics
call legitimate lecturers lie

means to great ends His lec
tures are replete with human in
terest and abound with morals

message is distinctively to the

where his prospects lie
While laboring to rouse to a
state of proper ambition the dor

In a word this particular Orchard is a peach You

plied to thousands of carriages few
people know how the word came to be
Back around 1S20 says the American
i Vehicle in explaining it when the
transportation of goods wares and
merchandise was almost entirely by
wagon a Dr Buck who for many
years afterward was the military store
keeper at Washington was in charge
of military stores en route to army
posts in the southwest
In east Tennessee much difficulty
was experienced by reason of the rough
roads and there were frequent mis
haps mostly from the wagons over
Dr Buck overhauled the outfit and
abandoning the wagon bodies long
boards were set directly on the axles
or hung below and the stores were
loaded in such a manner that there
were no further delays from break
downs and the stores safely reached
j their destinations In special
gency too the load could be shifted
i or taken off in a hurry
The idea was probably not new but
Dr Bucks example was followed
especially when roads were rough and
soon much hauling was done by the
use of wheels axles and boards only
Now we have the buckboard both in
carriage and Automobile forms
forming closely to the original
though few suspect the source of

Yet It Did Not Prejudice His Standing
as a Witness
An important case- was being tried
before the criminal court of the Dis
trict of Columbia An old negro was
In the witness box The district attor

Are you the John Williams who was
sent to the Albany penitentiary for

convicted of arson and sent to the Bal

Yes sah
All eyes were now turned upon the
witness The district attorney smiled
complacently and resumed
How many times have you been in
the penitentiary
Twice sah
In Baltimore sah
How long were you there the first
About two hours sah
How long the second time asked
the attorney rather crestfallen
An hour sah I went there to
whitewash a cell that was wanted for
a lawyer who had robbed his client
The attorney sat down amid the
laughter of the spectators
The Effort of His Life a Failure
W S Gilbert had a novel experience
before he wrote for the stage when
he was a barrister waiting for his first
brief It was long in coming and
when it did come Mr Gilbert deter
mined of course to make the effort of
his life
He was intrusted with the prosecu
tion of an old Irish woman for stealing
a coat and when he began the speech
that he had prepared and rehearsed so
carefully the old dame at once began
to interject Oh ye divil sit down
Sure now hes a loier yer honor Sit
down ye spalpeen Hes known to
all the perlice yer honor After some
minutes of this abuse Gilbert asked
the recorders intervention but that of
ficial was too busy laughing So the
effort of his life was not a success
Present Giving Worse Than Tipping
The trend of the times makes itself
felt in the matter of presents and
present giving In the days of our
grandmothers these tokens of affection
were few and far between and were
marked by a stern simplicity But we
have changed all that and the up to
date riot of presents means a deadly
drain on our bank balances
The tipping tax is bad enough but
the burden of countless presents can
give it points and a beating London
In a Bad Way
You seem much upset my good

Couldnt Recall Who Told It
I heard a very funny story the other
night ubout Horace Walpole said
Mrs Blake I wish 1 could remember
who told It Henry can you remem
ber Was it Mr Sellers
No said Blake stillly It wasnt
I wonder If It could have been Mr
io repeated Blake It wasnt
Before Mr Blake had a chance to ex
press an affirmative or negative opin
ion of that hazard as to the source of
the Walpole anecdote Mr Barton came
in Mrs Blake being by that time
sure of herself tried on him her rec
ipe for winning universal affection
Oh Mr Barton she said I am
very glad to see you I have hardly
stopped laughing since I saw you the
last time
Mr Barton a cadaverous man with
solemn oyes looked rather foolish
Indeed he said May I ask what
Over that funny story you told
about Horace Walpole said Mrs
Horace Walpole stam
mered Mr Barton I am afraid you
must have got me mixed up with some
body else I dont know the first thing
about Horace Walpole and if I did
know anything funny about him I
couldnt tell it To tell a funny story
is beyond my powers Even if It was
funny to start with it wouldnt be by
the time I got through with it
Mrs Blakes spirits were somewhat
dashed by her fiasco in finding an
owner for the Walpole story but she
bore up courageously and later when
Mr Markham came in she drew him
out of earshot of Mr Barton and dilat
ed on the pleasure his story of Horace
Walpole had given her Mr Markham
was not cast In the funeral mold that
gave to Mr Barton his grave aspect
but he protested himself totally Inca
pable of telling a funny story about
Horace Walpole or anything else
Presently Mrs Blake left the room
to prepare the sandwiches Mr Blake
followed her
For the love of the Lord he said
dont make a fool of yourself again
by trying to get some other idiot in
there to father that Walpole story I
told you that yarn myself
Mrs Blake stood still with carving
knife poised in air
You she said incredulously
it was so clever too New
a Rabid Gas That Nothing
Can Resist
The fury of the chemical world is
the element fluorine although strange
ly enough it exists peacefully in com
pany with calcium in fluorspar and
also in a few other compounds
Although this element was known
and named a good while ago it long
resisted the efforts of chemists to iso
late it that is prepare it in a pure
state unmixed chemically with other
substances for the instant the com
pound containing it was torn apart
the free fluorine attacked and combined
with whatever substance composed the
vessel containing it It was finally
isolated by the great French chemist
Fluorine is a rabid gas that nothing
can resist It combines with all met
als explosively with some or if they
are already combined with some other
nonmetalhc element it merciiessly
tears them aAvay from it and takes
them to itself
In uniting with sodium potassium
calcium magnesium and aluminium
the metals become heated even to red
ness by the fervor of its embrace
Iron fillings slightly warm burst into
brilliant scintillations when exposed to
it Manganese does the same Even
the noble metals which at melting
heat proudly resist the fascinations of
oxygen succumb to this chemical siren
at moderate temperatures
Glass is devoured at once and water
ceases to be water by contact with this
gas which combined with its hydro
gen at the same moment forms the
acrid glass dissolving hydrofluoric acid
and liberates ozone
Even hydrofluoric acid eats into and
destroys every known substance ex
