County Superintendent Lecron came
up from Columbus Tuesday morning and
spent the forenoon gathering up and
packing some articles which were left
here when he moved. He says it still
seems like home here. He is living in
the silk-stoeking ward of Columbus
where it is bad form to call the dog ia a
voice that can be heard mora than three
blocks; nor is it permissible to bring in
a backet of coal without having collar
and necktie properly adjusted, and it has
a tendency to make him bomesirk. But
he will get used to it in time. It is said
that there are plenty of people in that
ward whose right hands had to be tied,
when they first moved there, to keep
them from eating pie with a knife.

Keep Burglars Out,
Buy at any hardware store a small,
plain hinge,- one and one-half inches
long by one inch wide .when closed,
or smaller. Screw one side of binge
upright on to the lower right-hand
corner of upper window sash, direct
ly above the slight flange on all up
per sashes. See that the hinge1 la
toward and almost touching the'win
dow casing. This will leave one
side of the hinge free to turn. When
wishing to fasten window turn 'the
free side of the hinge as far back aa
possible. This brings it over the low

outside, but will prevent the lower
sash being raised or the upper one
lowered. When hinge is closed it
will not interfere with raising win
dow, and does not disfigure or weak

irds Stopped the Clock.
The town clock in Sarnla, Out,
stopped one morning not long ago,
and on investigation the hands were
found securely tied down by" strands
of twine and grass. The mischief had
been done by a pair of sparrows. De
siring to build a nest hi the angle of
the hands, the movement of which' in
terfered with their plans, they tied
the hands to each other, and to the
framework, in such a manner that it
took considerable time nnd labor to
remove the obstructions. The epgi
neering skill displayed, and the
amount of industry and perseverance
exhibited, makes the feat quite phe
nomenal in bird annals.
Uselessnsse ef Killing Authors.
There is really no use killing an
author to prevent the country pro
ducing others, because the man with
a book in him is like a birdthat must
lay an egg. We might start a aew or
ganization to discover f people likely
to write books and strangle them be
fore they find a publisher, but even
that would fail, because it is not pos
sible to tell who can write a success
ful book until it is written. The
literary faculty arises in the most un
expected ways, andv even dogma can
not anticipate its uncertainties. Sat
