We have seen and heard of the human
body being taken and used for almost
every thing, but never before did we
hear of a cat taking a human body for a
telephone pole, and this really happened
in Humphrey. A few days ago Tony
Fisher was going across the street from
the Commercial hotel to Steffrs Bros,
store. About tbe same time a dog got
after a cat, in fact the same cat of tur
pentine fame which came near inciting
civil war in Humphrey a few years ago,
and the cat taking Tony for a telephone
pole, was not slow in landing square on
bis back, and say! it was worth more
than a fifty cent show, with the side
show thrown in, to see Tony side step to

John Vaugbt, writes to bis father from

the price asked for potatoes is 91.75 per
bushel. America has land enough to
produce potatoes for the entire world,
but for some unaccountable reason does
not raise enough to supply the home de

potatoes are so high in Oklahoma. Only

were received in Memphis direct from

than similar potatoes from Colorado

The Philippine Women's club, the
first of its kind in the Philippines, is
struggling to supplement its work of
supplying sterilized milk to sickly, ill
fed infants by establishing a small
maternity hospital and a training class
for maternity nurses. This club was
due to a suggestion from Miss Con
cepcion Felix, who was at the time a
student of law and who in the course
of her studies became interested in the
woman movement in the western
countries. This was in the summer of
1905, and Miss Felix's suggestion was
so enthusiastically received that a
club with a membership of several
hundred native women was quickly

center for the distribution of pure
milk, the club gave a garden party in

was imported from Paris. A building

Some Birds That Don't Migrate.
"It is a curious thing," said Prof.
Henry Bird, an ornithologist of Rye
N. Y., at the Rennert, "that birds 01

gratory habils of Our native birds. Tha
English sparrow never seems to get
wise to the advantages of going soutr
in winter to avoid the rigors of s
northern climate, though he might ge
the tip from our wild fowl or the
robin family. Of late years we have

Insects with X-Ray Sights.
A German scientist has discovered
that many insects, such as moths and
butterflies, have X-ray sight. This
means that the eyes of these insects
can see with something similar to X
rays objects invisible to human eyes
unless aided by a fluoroscope. If or
dinary sunlight has enough of the X
rays in it for the butterflies to see
clearly, the world must.be a strange
sight to them. This scientist believes
that they can see through the clothes
and flesh -of human beings and behold
us walking about in our skeletons clad
in a translucent covering of flesh.

Origin of.the Mennonites.
The Mennonites grew out of four
sects of Dutch, Flemish and German
Baptists. They derive their name from
Menno Simons, a Catholic priest who
became a leader of the Anabaptists in
about 1537. Simons was bonvjn 1492
ind died in 1537. His "True Christian
Belief was published three years be

divisions and changes of creed.
Whole Race Condemned.
A native of Annam, Indo-China, sen
tenced in Paris for theft, wrote the,
following apology to bis, employer:
'All Annamities, whether emperors,'
mandarins, secretaries, literary men,
and others, are born thieves. It is a
grave and deadlly- complaint, and
:here is no cure for it. I know people
do not like thieves in France, but it
cannot be helped."
' Army Dogs.
The German army dogs are so
trained that when they find a dead
body they set up a prolonged howlingf
If no one comes they take tbe dead
man's cap or some small article, and
with this in their teeth go on a hunt
for their trainer, whom they lead to
the spot. If the man is wounded he
gives his cap to the dog and the same
object is accomplished.
