John Carmlohael, a Philadelphia octo
genarian, was ahaved last week for th
flrat tome In forty-eight year. In 1860 ha
voted for Stephen A. Douglas, and because
Douglas waa not elected vowed that ha
would hot shave until he waa 80 years old.
Saturday waa Mr. Carmlchael'a loth birth
day, and laat night's ahava waa In keep
ing with hie vow. Ha haa lived alnce IMS
on the Mlllcrest farm, near Lafayette,
When ha reached home after the ahava
hla doc Towser wouldn't let him In. Then
hie wife came to the door, and, taking him
for a tramp, aet the dog on him. Then
he made himself known.
"Well, John, you have made a .ight down
fool of youraelf," aajd she.
Mr. Carmlchael vowa that he will never
be ahaved again.
A Town Without Taxes.
Beverly, formerly the aeat of Randolph
coun West Virginia, and one of the oldest
cities In the state, enjoy the unique dis
tinction, revealing an almost Utopian con
dition, of being probably the only munic
ipality In West Virginia where Its citizens
pay no corporation taxes. The people have
not paid corporation taxes for the- last five
yeara. For three yeara money haa drawn
Interest from one of Its banks.
It costs, figuratively speaking, more to
die than it doea to live in Beverly, for the
city owns Us own cemeteryi and every time
one of Its residents dies, It costs his estate
from 110 to IK for an eternal resting place.
As showing the frugality In the adminis

cording to the city's financial statement,

been administered that there is a balance

Vaudeville for Preachers.
Advanced vaudeville waa Injected into a

All the merry quips and jests were at the

Immersed by a Baptist minister. The negro
wore a $6.98 suit of clothes, which began
to shrink as soon aa he came out of the
water. One of the slaters threw her arms
about him and asked.
"How do you feel now?"
"I feel like a fool," he replied.
It waa this Joke that set the preachers

Autos for t'lrm Heads.
Finding that high wages and a country
dance given in their honor did not suffice
to keep hired men, Walter Smeetson, a
wealthy farmer residing near Wagner, 8.
D., haa offered to purchase an automobile
for the use of hla male help.
To emphasise his offer, which was ver
bally made In the community, Smeetson
came to this village and inserted In the
local newspaper the following want ad:

Within twenty-four hours after the ad
vertisement appeared Smeetson received
applications from a dosen husky farm
hands, all of whom, however, declined to
begin work until the automobile Is brought
to the farm. Brneetsoa haa rented a ma

physicians worked long and patiently upon

The highest church aplre in St Louis Is
being built In a novel way. Its pinnacle
will soar 246 feet above the ground. It la
the first grille work spire In America, the
entire steeple being constructed of stone
lattice, giving free play to heavy winds.
' Engineering applications In the construc
tion of this spire are novel, as every piece
of stone used in the steeple has been cut
at the base of the tower by tools run by
compressed air, and the same agency has
hoisted the stones to the sevsral stagings
of the work. Pneumatio tubing is carried
up the derrick to the successive stages.
Stones weighing fifty pounds have been
shot through these tubes to the workmen
above and held in place by the air until re
moved from the tubes. The whole spire
will be crowned by a steel cap, seventeen
feet high, and several steeplejacks will be
required to fasten It In place.

Palmer consulted Lawyer Jacob 8. Strahl
