SHE ONCE WAS A TABBY Declares She Formerly Lived in an Alley and Roamed Over Back Fences Her Existence Then Has Made Her Solicitous for Cats Now. Kansas City, Mo. If the family cat purrs gently at your side, if it meows appealingly. If It sits upon the chair and caats a sympathetic eye in your direction while you argue with the iceman or if it gets upon the piano keya, don't pass the incidents Indif ferently from your mind as unimpor tant and merely the antics of a cat. There is meaning, real significance, in ever- action and look of the cat; at least to one woman in the world, Mrs Hattio Melius Freeman, of tills city This woman is thoroughly conver 'ant ith cats She can understand their every whim; she can talk to them; they can talk lo her In court, they are her companions, and she would much rather be in the company ot cats than be forced to participate m mine idle and garrulous chatter For Mrs Freeman is a firm believer In the transmigration of the soul In her previous mystic condition ! lore she took human form, she i ' fO 1 Talks to Cats. ray that she was an a!le cat Just a t;t!ia! alley cat.

"Oh. the horror of that life: Shall I ever f-irpet it?" .Mrs Freeman was -peakiri; to a reporter, and as she half asked tbe question a slmer rent her Then, without waiting for an an swer, she related that the existence she had to endure in her forme life has made her especially solicitous of cats in this life. There you have the explanation of the twenty-seven cats which make their home with Mrs. Freeman All her life she has been a cat lover. If any one will take the trouble to go to the rear of this woman's home he will not only find food there for the stray cats, but he will see also a shelter made especially for the pur pose. "It is terrible, terrible to lead the life of an alley cat," continued the woman "No soul can have a braver or a more sordid trial.

I micht have thought mself the most HI treated soul In the world had I not met other cats worse off than I "Well do 1 remember one dusk In my cat world when I had put In a most miserable day.

Little Rock. Ark. The recent rise of the Arkansas river brought a new kind of drift down the stream and the river "rats." instead of pulling in stray saw-logs, have been catching coffins. Reports from Conway and other points state that fishermen along the Arkansas river have caught and tied up several coffins which contain ed the bodies of iersons evidently dead for some time Robert L. Gregg of Conway first no tied a cotfin floating down the river. Catching Floating Coffins. It lodged on a sandbar, but later was lloated awa. W. W. Matthews and .lame-.

Word of the tloating coffins was con vened to iho:-e who have relatives buried in cemeteries along the banks J of the Arkansas within the limits of Conway Relatives visited other graiey.itds to iind their feais realized. Rewards were offered for the recov ery of bodies. Several fishermen abandoned their usual diversion to watch for the tloating cotlins. but not so with the negro fishermen.

I -c PET BULL SHAKES ARE CROP SAVERS Kansas College Tells Alfalfa Growers Reptiles Will Keep Fields Free of Pests. NEED TWO TO AN ACRE Are Said to Be Affectionate Little Creatures and Far Superior to Pol son for Killing Gophers Crawlers Declared to Be Certain Destruction. Manhattan. Kan. If the advice of the Kansas Agricultural college is fol lowed every Kansas farmer will keep a herd of trained snakes on h;s farm and when Hill Jones meets Hi Jenkins at the crossroads on a Sunday morn ing on the way to church they will tell of the prowess of their respective snaken and talk trade. Snakes are valuable to the farmer who raises alfalfa, and they are ad vised to breed and raise them because the snakes drive out the pocket go phers and moles, the worst foes of alfalfa. Farmers who have been ex pei, meriting with snakes in the alfalfa fields say that two active hull snakes will keep three acres of alfal'a clear sex vice is worth at 1 .is ?i per snake in a saving of alfalfa The auiicultural coil e has issued a bulk-tin on Miakes en !. farm.

Maybe a sn-ke warden, with oodlc-s of deputy sn.ike ward us. will be provided for mid then there will be a lot of new jobs for the politicians. The gophers and moles have done such damage in Kansas alfalfa fields Having a Snake Figni. that I uislation has been attempted to uouire farmers to kill the gophers and to use poisons 1!it the bull snake is held to be tux supirior to poisons for killing ophi-rs and moles Most farmers kvp dogs and cats, but the sm.ke ex perts assert that a herd of bull snakes wculi' ' e much more valuabk The fanner is advised to give the vvrig uling protectors of alfalfa as much atv and consideration as he does the I ill ml '" and the rat terrier that keeps tii rodents from undet mining the corn rii and wheat bins. Bright and early every morning the 'arrner should gather his bull snakes about him and hasten to the alfalfa nrld. where the gophers and the moles are wont to cavort In the dew and al falfa. "Whoop-la. There he goes! After him. Jimmy Hull! Right down that hole. Hill Hull! Wriggle along there, now. you old sinner! After 'em. ole snake! Sic 'em, Hull. Swalkr 'em '. hok." These and similar cries the farmer boy would give as his trained bull snakes go wriggling through the al falfa and into the gophers' holes. It ought to be lots of fun.

Cool nights drive bull snakes Into winter quarters, where they remain until late spring, while the gophers and moles work a much longer season. To guard against this the farmer could ' gather his snake every evening Just as he does the cows, only place them in lined baskets and keep them be hind the kitchen stove. t Sometimes the snakes might escape ' from the basket and decide that on the iarmer's bed was a much warmer j place and they would crawl o'ver and ) cuddle down on the farmer's manly j bosom.

ART OF CONVERSATION LOST Once Sriilisnt Speech Was Plentiful, But it Is Forgotten in Modern Life. With all our learning in our race in the grat battle of life, have we not lost, just for lack of time but h. the pity of it the art of conversa tion? Hoes anyone really converse now To talk shop, to use slang, to be always and ever on the endleus rush are not these the modern fash ion? How graceful was the measured speech of our grandparents. In those das. too. as in ours, were to be found the genial, the bright, the clever. How did wit shine, and repartee polish it self against repartee. The bishop of Cork was a celebrated teetotaler Shortly after he was made bishop he was Invited to dine with the bishop of Ossory. 'My lord." said the bishop of Os sorv. "even though you are John Cork ou must not stop the bottle." "I see. my lord." replied the new- bishop, "that you want to draw me out." This may be a chestnut, but it be longs to a time when brilliant speech was a mailer of every day. Let us, with all our tremendous advantages, not quite forget the little courtesies and the gay wit of the old times. Find time, therefore, happy modern girl, for charm. So bright and capti vating ate her fairy wings that she ia worth pursuing. THEY KNOW HE SELLS PEPPER Undesirable Acquaintances and Train Porters Do Not Annoy Peddler of That Spice. "After a man has learned to control his own organs of sneezing, selling pepper for a living has its advan tages." said the blond young man. "For one thing, it keeps undesirable acquaintances at a distance. When ever I feel a desire to commune with my own soul all I have to do to secure the necessary privacy is to mention my occupation and people flee from me as if I had the plague. "And I have got It, in one sense. It is impossible to handle ground pepper all day long without carrying home an ounce or two on my clothes, and a vigorous whack on my coat sleevs sends enough pepper flying to set a dozen people sneezing. For that rea son a pepper salesman is immune from many of the annoyances that unprotected persons have to endure. No man who knows my occupation greets me with that familiar slap on the back that makes the most amiable man alive feel like fighting, and there Isn't a porter on a train running Into New York who pesters me with whisk broom attentions. They all know that I sell pepper." Petticoat Lane. The trade In old clothes In Londoa is almost entirely in the bands of Jews, whpse great market is Petti coat lane in Houndsditch. The crook ed, narrow streets are crowded with pedestrians buying and selling bundles of clothing, with great rows of tick eted garments hanging along the store fronts above the congested crowds. Some articles are sold Just as they are. others are mended and patched. The skirts of a coat are easily made into children's clothes. France takes all the old black cloth of the lane too far gone for children's clothes, mak ing it Into caps, while Russia and Po land take the parts still more worn and threadbare. Black velvet waist coats are converted into skull caps for German and Polish Jews. The bulk of England's old clothes goes to Holland and Ireland, but the vast ma Jority of the scarlet coats worn by officers In the British army find their way to the annual fair at Leipzig. Ger many.
