were of the KsUimo variety autl were
trained to work in teams In tlieir
genera eoudtiet however they acted
as a community and their rules had
reference to th oinmoii good There
was no penalty less than that ot death
During the period or darkness we
lost eight dogs Three of them splen
did large animals were killed by their
companions The other live either wan
dered off on the young ice and were
blown away or were killed liy the pact
at a distance rrom camp livery dog
was known by name
It is a curious fact that when one
dog has antagonized the others the
only way to save him from destruction
later on Is to chain him Then the
other dogs let him alone Unfortunate
ly for us the dogs that seemed to m
cur the enmity of their fellows were
the large strong animals the bullies
and lighters
There seemed to be a degree of jus
tice in their Judgments Krom close
observation 1 found that the dogs gen
erally forgave a bite ou the head or
body but that an attack on the legs
seemed to be considered foul play and
must be paid for by the lite of the of

One Man Who Now Has an Argument
Handy For His Wife
The wife of a Topeka man objects
strenuously because her husband is a
confirmed smoker He is uever happy
without a cigar or a pipe The other
morning she gave him a ten dollar bill
and told him to buy several things for
her He pushed the bill iuto his coat
pocket and rushed out of the house to
catch a car
He found that he had to wait a few
minutes at the corner for the cars
were off schedule that morning and
then he proceeded to light a cigar But
he found no matches all of his pock
ets were bare of them Suddenly be
happened to think that he also missed
the ten dollar bill A hurried search
disclosed that it was gone
lie turned right about and retraced
his steps lust as he got in front of
his home he happened to look into the
street and there was that ten tum
bling around in the wind His wife
saw him go and pick it up and she de
manded an explanation He promptly
told her how looking for a match had
caused him to discover that he had
lost the bill
Now tell me there isnt any virtue
in smoking he snorted as he puffed
out his chest Kansas City Journal

The two ets of false teeth looked

Terrible Experience of tho Crew of tho

When Ross In IMS touched at Ktah
the Esks thought they were being vis

appearing ou the horizon where the
sky melts Into an abyss of ocean
what else could the ship be but some
great white winged ghost and what
those strange creatures on her decks
but lost souls They thought she a
great bird had Mown from the moon
where wood was abundant and when
they saw her close her wooden belly
and her masts they whispered llou

with pieces of ice The doctor was
forced to cut the unlucky mates hand
off and he died next day Toward the
middle of January a caravan of Esks
came to ask us for some dried tish aud

It Blooms Says a Florist Every Twenty-five
to Forty Years
The regular century plant said an
expert in floriculture is not a cactus
It belongs to a family by itself It hav
a large broad leaf sometimes two or
three feet long and several inches
thick where they branch from the cen
ter There are two varieties one the
variegated and the other green The
only difference is that the variegated
has a white stripe aloug the outer edge
of the leaf Both bloom every twenty
live to forty years A stock perhaps
eight or ten inches in diameter shoots
up from the center to a height ot fif
teen or twenty feet and around this
stock cluster small blossoms They are
neither pretty nor fragrant They were
formerly supposed to bloom one in a
hundred years
The nearest thing to a century
plant is a night blooming cereusi It is
a cactus and blooms once in about
every twenty five years or so The
flower is large very beautiful and has
a delightful odor One plant mauave
several blossoms but each flower lasts
only one night
There is no such plant as a century
cactus The cactuses that many have
mistaken for century cactuses will
bloom in four or Ave years if kpt uu
der glass or about seveu years if not
iu a hothouse Because they are so
long in blooming I suppose they have
been called century cactuses anu the
name has been handed down until it Is
considered the proper term for tnem
They bloom yearly after the first blos
soms appear They are just an ordi
nary cactus but they have a preitT
fragrant flower Seattle Times
The Canny Scot
In the differences that would some
times arise between members of his
tenantry the Duke of Argyll whs often
invited to arbitrate upon the flatter in
dispute and he used to tel a charac

occasions Two tenants bving waited
upon him and asked him o decide the
question at issue the duke put what he
always regarded as a ery necessary
preliminary question Will you abide
