Death of Mrs. Warren 0. Candy.
The Ilumboldt correspondent
to the State Journal of Tuesday
gives the following account of
the death of Mrs. Warren O.
Relatives in this city received
word of the death of Mrs. War
ren O. Gandy , who was recently
reported so seriously ill at her
home near Peacock , Sask. ,
Canada , that her'daughter , Miss
Nelhe Gandy , was compelled to
give up her school here and
start for her bedside. Although
the latter was delayed en route
by snow blockades she man
aged to reach home several
days before her mother died.
Mrs. Gandy was a native of
West Virginia , aged about fifty
years , and came with her hus
band and children to this place
about eleven years ago. They
resided on a farm near here un
til two years ago , when they
joined the Ilumboldt colony of
Canada homeseekers , but ever
since their removal to that
point Mrs. Candy's health has
been failing steadily. The end
came on March Ib , and inter
ment was made near their home.
She leaves a husband Warren
O. Gandy , who is a cousin toDr.
J. L. Gandy , or this city , and
five children , three daughters
and two sons , all of whom were
with her at the end.

IDEAL PLACE FOR CHICKENS.
The mania of city people to keep
chickens as POOD as ( hey move ( o a
suburban section , even if the neigh

illustrated in a block of ne\v houses

With gront ideaof the charac

his houses to , the builder provided
'deep back yards with a wide alley

GREAT SCIENTIST SAVED.
Here is a curious little story
about Sir .lames Simeon , the man
who introduced the use of chloro
form into surgery , ami a peril which
Jie escaped , as recorded by Lyoii
! l'lay fair Simpson , when busy with
lis researches into Ihe subject of
anaesthetics , called one day on
IPlayfair and asked if he had any- .
Iliing new likely to produce anncs-
thefiia. I'lay fair had just prepared
a liquid which hcemed worthy of
trial. Simson , who knew no fear ,
prepared instantly to test it on
himself. This Play fair refused to
allow until it had first been Iried
on rabbits. Two were procured and
placed under the ell'ccls of the an-
acslbelie. Next day Sim&on pro
posed lo try it on himself. "We
might as well see how ( he rabbits
have fared , " said IMayfair. They
found both the animals dead.
OF GREEK ORIGIN.
The couch was probably intro
duced into Ci'reece by the Assyrians ,
for it appears in the Parthenon
frieze in the Mrilish museum , and1
the \afcc room Micro anil in the
Louvre give frequent illustrations
of ancient (5reck ( couches , which
were maile of bronxe instead of
wood , anil also of the stnil's used
in upholstering them. The ( iicrlcs
Jn their turn taught the Itomans the
use of Ihe couch , for ( Ireek aiiUts
and workmen were employed in
Koine. During meals men reclined
on couches each made to hold three
persons ; a low rail protected the
back , and three of these seats sur
rounded the table at an entertain
ment , leaving the fourth hide open
for service. Couches were also cur
ried anil used as litters.
The excursion train was on its
return trip , filled with tired and
sleepy passengers. It had come tea
a slop , but lo those who looked out
of Ibe windows no station or other
buildings \verc in sight. Fully ten
minutes it stood , anil the passengers
weie wondering where they were or
what the trouble might be.
Just I lieu a young man appear
ed at the front door of the coach.
"Crackerjack ! " he yelled.
"Well , " said a passenger up
front , "it's home satisfaction to
know where we're at , anyway. "
"I wonder how it feels to have
go much money you don't know
what to lift with it. "
"L was that wr # once. "
"Come off ! "
"Sure 1 was. L only had so much
and my creditors were demanding
as much again. "
HIS REAL OBJECTION.

a fuss about a fly in your tea.
