A story which will "go straight to the

gentleman who was invited to Join a shoot

Vast felt himself prodded in the back, and.

and hi look of interrogation was met with

hammers of the gun, which waa at fuU

what promised to be a mystery. An old

; A correspondent of the Apache Week's
Review, which I published out in Oklahoma,
is anzloua about matrimony. She asks:
"We wonder why somebody don't get mar
ried, t's girls are all ready and waiting,
and the holidays are approaching and a few
weddings would be In order. We could
name quite a number ot nice gentlemen
and some handatme young women to whom
the county clerk would, for a very small
fee, givt- the proper documents to enter
Into this blissful state. Let some good
brother and sister make the start, nd we
venture to aay that they will come as thick
and fast as a Dakota snow."
The China Times relates an extraordi
nary rase of Chinese "Justice." A Mr. Jen
was betrothed last year to Miss Han and
paid bia money to the woman's parents.
A month ago he called on the parents to
have the contract fulfilled and was told
that the promised one waa the bride of an
other. Having paid his money, be con
sidered be waa entitled to ths girl and went
to her husband's house to carry her off,
but she waa not at home. He then laid
hla case before the magistrate. The girl
waa arrested and sentenced to be "kus-cd,"
the magistrate arguing: "It you are so
wicked at 20 years of age, at the age ot
80 you will be a menace to the celestial
empire." The process of kua-lng is very
similar to the ling-chin, or sllclng-to-death
William Shipley, a prominent farmer of
Waynesrllle, 111., has In his possesion a
remarkable relic of prehistoric man, which
be dug- up on his farm while plowing re
cently. This relic Is a large-alsed spear of
pure copper. The metal Is highly tem
pered and when suspended by a cord It
gives forth a clear, ringing sound when
struck by some Instrument. It I said that
this science of tempering copper has be
come one of the lost arts and proves con
clusively that the weapon of warfare waa
made by a race of people which roamed
this, continent long before the American
Indian. It is claimed that the spear
found by Mr. Shipley has but on counter
part and that exists In an eastern museum.
The former is quite slender and, as one
end Is tapering. It Is presumed that It va
fashioned to nt Into a handle ot wood. The
heod of the weapon is three inches broad
and, hurled by a man of strength, would
make a wound that could hardly help from
proving fatal. The finder will probably
turn the relic over to the Wesleyan uni
versity of Bloomlngton and It will prove
a valuable addition to the museum.

the exchange editor.
"Some," waa the reply. "Want me to

the average man's ambition to see his
witticisms reprinted with credit.
Oh, I wouldn't want to put you to so
much trouble," replied the paragrapher,
modestly. "And It would delky your other
"Hardly at all, hardly at all," asserted
the exchange editor.
