The Cody Cow Boy claims to
have printed'the primary election
law first of any paper in Cherry

pains to request it of fiis ready

Bill Nye'and Maartens.
In the spring of 1S95 the distin
guished Dutch novelist known by the
pen name of Maarton Maartenswas
elected an honorary member of the
Authors' club of New York , says the
-Bookman. When the name Joost Ma-
rlus M. Van der Toorten-Sclnvartz
cameto , the attention of the member
ship committee there was a gasp of
astonishment. Finally the late Bill
JS'ye came to the rescue with the sug
gestion that the first half of the name
should be acted on at once , but that
the last half should be held over until
the autumn , when the weather would
Why Ago Improves V/ines.
"Why do wines improve with age ? "
"Because they marry , " answered the
"Marry ? "
"Yes. That is the term iisi'd in the
trade. 'This sherry , ' we say , 'has married -
' ' hock has married
riod well' or 'that
j [ nastily. ' Wo inenn by a wine's mar
riage that its different components
the alcohol , the sugar , the er.rboulc acid
and so on have blended together
smoothly. In a new wine this blend
ing , this marriage , has not yet taken
place , and hence the harshness of new
wines. Old wines are valued because
the alcohol and sugar and acids and
others have all married together into
one fragrant compound : " Exchange.
The best weather vanes are made
with the greatest nicety and precision ,
so that they balance perfectly and
turn with tlie least possible wear. The
vane is , of course , longer on one side
of the socket than on the other , or it
would not t-irn with the wind , but its
weight is the same on both sides. Ii
it is a narrow vane , for instance , the
weight of the solid head i.s easily made
equal to that of the longer , projecting ,
but thinner feather end , and all vanes ,
whatever they may be , are balanced
as to weight and so adjusted that they
turn easily , and with the least possible
"Crazy people never act together , "
declares the superintendent of a large
asylum for the insane. "If one inmate
attacks an attendant , as Fomethnes
happens , the others would look upon
it as no affair of theirs and simply
watch it. The moment we discover
twq or more inmates working together
we would know they were on the road
to recovery. "
How He Caught Them.
Archbishop Whately had a true
sense of grammar , says an old English
man who remembers him , and delight
ed to .spring catch questions. One was :
"What is the vocative of cat ? * '
Generally the assured answer wa ?
" 0 cat ! "
The archbishop would smile then and
say , "No ; puss , puss ! "
I pray , first , for good heaiiii ; men
for prosperity ; thirdly , for happiness ,
and , lastly , to owe no man anything.

Malt is the body of beer. It
is what makes beer a foodrich
in health-giving qualities. j
Malt b'arley-grain ,
sprouted and partially grown.
Most malstersforce this process - "
cess in three or four days time ,
Pabst takes the full eight days
as required by Nature , with the
result that Pabst gets a nutritious ,
strength-building malt. -
It takes Pabst longer and it costs
Pabst more to make this perfect malt ,
but this Eight-Day Malting Process

richest in food values.
The Pabst Eight-Day Malting Process
is much the same in its action as the
process of digestion. Pabst Malt is prac

Beer is actually ready for the system to i
assimilate without the necessity of first
taxing the stomach to digest it.
When ordering beer , ask

DROWNED IN MILL POND
Clyde Black Loses Life
While Attempting to
Swini across Minnecha =
duza Mill Pond.
Clyde Black , a .young man IS
years of agejwas drowned in the
Minnechaduza lake or mill pond
list Sunday about 2:10 : p. m. Sev
eral boys had gone in swimming
near the dam. Someone suggested
swimming across to the north side
and all started across. The water
is deep and wide at this place
wider and deeper than it looks
and near the deepest place is a
current of cold water which chills
and prevents the best action of the
muscles. Several of the boys
were good swimmers and sped
away , easily getting across , but
two or three found it tiresome and
swam slowly. Cl. > de Black , a son
of Felix Black of north table , was
one of the swimmers and was falling -
ing behind , but as he was a strong
healthy boy no one appeared con
cerned about him until he began
to flounder around in the water
excitedly and Wallace McDonald ,
beinjr nearer him , swam to his res
cue but was unable to hold onto o\
the boy who appeared to be D
drowning and in his efforts to save '
himself bit McDonald's arm. Oli
ver Walcott also swam to the as
sistance of Clyde Black but found Si
hard work in saving himself and fi5
both he and McDonald were neartl
ly exhausted before realizing that 01
they were several rods from shore
and in water 25 feet deep. They
succeeded in reaching shore after TV
diving several times for Clyde ln
Black who had down
gone for the to
last time. During this time the
Black boy never spoke nor called
for aid. He seemed to have become
come excited and strangled while \vei
sw miming until he could't call for tlieyi left
Several hundred people gathered A
on the shores around the lake and
watched while the water was be
ing lowered and several men in
aoats searched the water with
grappling hooks on poles and
ropes' , dragging until six o'clock
jeCore finding the body , which
probably lay where it went down.
Ffoward Layport hooked onto the
jody in water 25 feet deep or
more. ' An effort was made to re
store life but the body was cold
and the arms and legs stiff when
taken up. N
The funeral was held the fol
lowing day at Harmony cemetery.
The boy had not been staying at i , ,
hemp , owing to some disobedience C

to his parents and his obstinate
disposition , so we hear.

noise like the di.sclrirge of distant ar

careful English people fail to rhyme It
with "piv.iT' nowadays. The song of
some years bade "My dear little girlie
girlie , with hair so nk-e and curly , and
every morning early' * shows the cus
tom of the great public in our time ,
though in th "Yilikins and his Dinah"
period "girl" was rhymed with "dwell. "
"Gell" was no doubt the nearest the
averatre man could get to the sound
imperfectly represented by "gairl" and
at any rate was better than the vulgar
igalP.ut in these days few authors
would go to the trouble of writing

At n village church a wedding was

sented themselves at the chancel steps.
I'he service proceeded smoothlj * as far
is the , uestion , "Wilt thou have this
woman to be thy wedded Avifo ? "
Whereupon the supposed bridegroom
stammered blushingly :
"Please , sir. I'm not the right man. "
"Not the right man. " exclaimed the
clergyman , aghast. "Then where is the
right man ? "
"He's down at the bottom of the
church , sir. He's ashceamed to come
up. " Church Family Newspaper.

If the human jnw.s need souie occu
pation in the intervals of meals and
gossip , says Health Culture , mastica
tors could learn a lesson from the
peasants of southern Russia , who ex
ercise their teetli on the hard seeds of
the Caspian sunflower. There is not a
suspicion of a stimulant about it , no
chewing gum dyspepsia or navy plug
nuisance. It i.s a pastime and inci
dentally an excellent dentifrice. In
Astrakhan a pint of the requisite seeds
can' be bought for a quarter of a penny.
