The county board met Monday after
noon, the meeting having been calle
to arrange the levy for the various
funds for the next year. This morn
ing a resolution was presented by Su
ervisor Dasenbrock, of the Creston
district, looking to some way of secur
ing the opinion of the people of the
county in regard to the matter of se
curing a new court house. The board
this afternoon is considering the mat
ter and will probably devise some way
in which the sentiment of the eople
can be ascertained before taking up
the projtosition of calling an election,
as they wish to find the popular sen
timent without going to this exiicne.
Should the Hople appear to favor the
proposition a special election will
probably be called later.

queens have received all due honor.
Esther Faa Blythe, who died In 1883,
had many members of the aristocracy
on her visiting list, and she, too, had a
regular coronation. But. on the whole,
the gypsy has not had a very good
time In England. An act of 1392, for
example, made it a felony without
benefit of clergy to be merely seen for
a month in the society of gypsies,
while for actually being a gypsy no
punishment was too severe. London
A Premium on Marriage.
In Belgium they place a premium on
marriage by allowing a married man
two votes at an election as against
the single man's one. In Madagascar

childless at the age of twenty-five he

I speak of a "friendly match," not

"" THE CYCLOPEAN EYE.
It Exists Today In Rudimentary Farm
In Man's Brain.
The Greeks were, unwittingly, very
aear an anatomical troth when they
ascribed to certain monsters called Cy
clops only one eye apiece, which was
placed in the center of their foreheads.
The cyclopean eye exists today in
the brains df men in a rudimentary
form, for in the pineal gland we find
the last vestiges of that which was
once a third eye and which looked out
Into the world, if not from the center
of the forehead, at least from very
near that point. There Is alive today a
little creature which would put to
shame the one eyed arrogance and
pride of Polyphemus and Arges and
Brontes and Steropes and all the rest
of the single eyed gentry who, In the
days of myths and myth makers, In
habited the "fair Sicilian isle."
The animal In question is a small
lizard called Calotls. Its well develop
ed third eye is situated in the top of
its head and can be easily seen
through the modified and transparent
scale which serves It as a cornea.
Many other laeertilians have this third
eye, though it is not so highly organ
ized as it is In the species just men
tioned. A tree lizard which is to be found in
the mountains of east Tennessee and
Kentucky has its-third eye well de
veloped. This little animal Is called
the "singing scorpion" by the moun
taineers. On dissection the third eye
will be found lying beneath the skin.
It has a lens, retina and optic nerve.

And the Tiny Cells That Give Them
Their Brilliant Hues.
A leaf Is one of the most beautiful
things in nature, and it is very won
derful to think that it owes its lovely
color to minute little living bodies or
cells of chlorophyll. This word comes
from two Greek ones, chloros, green,
and phullon. a leaf, and is used to
describe the ordinary coloring matter
The chlorophyll cells or granules
absorb the light and heat of the sun's
rays and .in some marvelous way,
which only scientists can understand,
manufacture the sugar which is neces
sary for the life of the tree itself by
combining the carbonic acid gas of the
atmosphere with the water drawn in
by its roots. These tiny cells are vo
very small that as many as 400.000
have leen counted In a square milli
meter of the leaf of a castor oil plant,
and In order that they may come in
contact with as much sunlight as ms
slble the leaf turns slightly on its stalk
toward the sun.
If you notice the arrangement of the
leaves on a bough you will see that
nature has placed them so that they
form an almost ierfect "light screen"
aud catch all the sunshine that there
Is. If it were not for the constant
work of these little chlorophyll cells
the splendid trees In our forests would
wither and die and there would be no
green things left In the world. Lou

The Secretary Bird.
The Ionic legged South African sec
retary birds travel in pairs, male and
female. If disturbed or pursued their
pace Is about as fast as that of a run
ning horse. They seldom use their
wings and if compelled to do so can
soar to a considerable height. They
build bulky nests, and where trees are
to he had they select one fifty to a
hundred feet above the ground. Their
nests are built of sticks aud sods, lined
with grass, and measure as much as
five feet in diameter and three feet in
thickness. As a rule only two eggs are
laid. Incubation takes six weeks,
which is done by the female. The
young have to remain in their nests
several mouths before they can stand
on their long, slender legs, which are
very weak and brittle. The , ig
easily break their legs if disturled.
Old Time Theater Rowdies.
Rowdyism in London theaters was a

The first thing to do in going to the
east is to turn your education out on
your desk so that you can get at the
bottom of It, and there you will find
the Bible and the "Arabian Nights"
and the "Odyssey" and "Iliad" and
"Virgil" and "Herodotus" and "Xeno

fool you were not to have devoted
more time to them when you were
asked to do so. Guide books can get
you to the east, but they do not get
