FRANKLIN'S MAXIMS UNIVERSAL
"Poor Richard's" gaylaara ' Beeai
More Tksa Carreat Proverbs
The maxima of "Poor Richard" are often
merely current proverbs, but the wording
In which Benjamin Franklin clothed them
has endured, and they are therefore usually
credited to him. The line, "Thinks I, that
mnn has an axe to grind,'.' Is one of the
many well known sayings contained In the
Pennsylvania Almanac of 1758.. The ex
pression "That man has an axe to' grind

Wilkcs-Barre Gleaner In 1811.
"When I- see a. merchant," wrote Miner,
"overpollte to hlii customers,' begging them
to taste a little brandy and throwing half
his goods on the counter thinks I, that
man ho an axe to grind."
Benjamin Franklin entered the printing
business soon after his'" arrival in this city,
and on October 1 1729, Issued his first
number of the "Pennsj-lvanla Gasette."
As every printer in the colonies published
an almanac. Franklin Issued i IS first nurn

yet this Folly is practiced every Day at

their own; but, Felix quern faciunt allena

Franklin, In 1748, sold his newspaper, al
manac and printing house to David Hall,
one of his 'employes, In consideration of
$90,000, payable In eltshteen years during
which time Franklin waa to contribute oc
casionally to the Pennsylvania Qaxette
and assist In. editing Poor Richard.

was established In the rear of 13 market

EVEN SCIENCE GIVES IT UP
Power of Lst Revive Brain Which
Waa Dead for Sixty
Mrs. Harry Cohn's brain had been dead
for. sixty hoira
It came to life again and the woman
who had been lying In a death-like coma
sat up and smiled Into her husband's eyes
and spoke his name.
Mrs. Cohn was thrown from her horse
In Denver. She fell against the street curb
and struck her head a frightful blow.
They carried her home unconscious and
for sixty hours she lay white and still,
without a sign of life or returning con
sciousness. Her mother and father and
William Hahn, her brother, watched be
side her every minute of the sixty awful
hours that they have passed since the
'My daughter's husband. Dr. Cohn, was
In Trinidad when the accident occurred,"
said Mrs. Hal.n. "We thought every hour
would sco a change for the better, and so
we didn't telegraph ' until last night. He
caught the first train out of Trinidad. We
knew ho was coming, but we' dreaded to
hear him come up the steps. My daughter
hadn't spoken or moved, and we were,
afraid she would never speak or move
again. '; .
"The Instant the husband came Into the
room my daughter trembled a little, sighed,
opened her eyes and spoke her husband's
name. Wasn't It strange? How do you sup
pose she knew who It was that came into
the room. She hedn't known any of us
since she was hurt."
The physician In charge of the case said
that there Is every chance that Mrs. Cohn
will soon recover. There seems to be no
actual fracture of the skull, he declares,
and her unconscious condition was un
doubtedly due to nervous shock, but the
physician, skillful though he Is, does not
answer when the sick woman's mother asks
him where her daughter's mind was for
sixty hours and what explanation his
science can give of the fact that the mere
presence of her" husband Could call her

"Oh, please don't examine me!" she
pleaded. "I might as well tell you all, I am

PRIZE FOR 83-YEAR FUTURITY
Cloea of a Remarkable Tnatlae Prop
erty Scheme to Thrifty ,
A futurity race In New Haven,. Conn.,
which lasted eighty-three years, with at
least $260,000 for the prize was settled Sep
tember 80, when the death of. Deacon Lu
cius Wooster of Westvlllo was announced.
Now the seven final heirs to the Tontine
hotel property are left and the estate will
be decided. In 1820, 300 persons subscribed
110 each, makln a pool pf $30,000, with which
the Tontine hotel, one of the best known
In New England, was constructed. It was
finished In 1828 when the race began.
According to the terms of the original
agreement, every shareholder had a right
to nominate any person for the futurity.
The property was to be kept Intact until
only seven survived.
, The nominees were in most rases babies
in the cradle, care being taken to make
nominations of persons who were of fam
ilies with a record of longevity.
The Connecticut legislature granted a
charter for the company and the hotel be
gan doing business as the chief hostelry
of New Haven. As time passed on its
site on the New Haven green became ex
ceedingly valuable and the land It owned
near the hotel became the site for other
valuable business blocks.
The hotel continued to prosper under the
tontine association, and some financial
experts place the value of the property and
the surplus at $150,000.
The charter granted by the legislature
permitted complete secrecy In the financial
operations, and no report has ever been
made of the funds held, or the puyments
made by the officers of the company. In
deed, the nominees, and the shareholders
have never been announced.
Deacon Fitch, one of the most prominent
alumni and former officials of Tale uni
versity, was the eighth nominee surviving.
This was learned a few months ago, and
the care taken to prolong the Uvea of the
survivors in the hope that each would ex
ist until after one more of the number
died has rivaled that described In Robert
Louis 8teveraon's book "The Wrong Box."
In which a similar tontine race is described.
The contest for the futurity for several
weeks haa been a battle of trained forces
and doctors, and the elderly people who
have been left in the race have practically
led Uvea In glass cases. . -
The annual meeting of the tontine asso
ciation will be held In about two weeks.
At that time stepa will be taken to wind
up the affairs of the tontine company. The
corporation woud be criminal now under
the laws of Connecticut, but It has been
thought best not to disturb the associa
tion, but instead to allow It to continue
until it wound up its affairs In a natural
It Is know that three of the surviving
nominees are Mrs. Betsle Ives, Mrs. H.
W. S. Whaples of New Haven, and Mra.
Sarah Ooen of Chicago.
Deacon Fitch was 88 years old. He was
for many years assistant treasurer of Yale
and was for two years Its treasurer. New

Two lots at two prices, $2.49 and $1.49 a pair.

true that the long sleeve garments in vogue at present
interfere to some extent with the sale of long gloves.
Many leaders of fashion, however, wear kid glovesoyer

ROSE KI,NQ OF AMERICA
Immense F.stabllshment and Vast
Business la America
The rose king of America has his piln
clpallty some thirty mllee up the Hudson
from New Tork City, directly In tha seat
of fashion along the Albany post road.
There are roses to right of him, roses to
left of him, roses In front of him and
behind him, all told, nearly 160 scree of
roses. It 1s common for him to ship to
New Tork City 20,000 roses. Tou scarcely
would know that one had been taken. In
the miles of glass houses there are hun
dreds of thousands more. About 7,000,000
are sent away each year. All are American
The king is Paul M. Ptereon, who, for
the last twenty years, has raised nothing
but this variety of rose. How vast his out
put is may best be judged from the fact
that last June between 600,000 and 760,000
long-stemmed American Beauties were sent
out to serve as "decorations at the wed
dings and commencement exercises in Just
three dries, New Tork Philadelphia and
Boston. The king and his brother, Fred
erick R., have no resorted to the very fre
quent modern custom of handling their
vast plant by managers and a board of
directors, but conduct each Individual fea
ture of the enterprise personally.
In the open air American Beauties can
rot Im raised successfully. One thing
that means' their death is the heavy dew.
"Unusual condensation" Is the technical
term that describes this. Too much mois
ture on the leaves causes the "black spots"
to appear, and when this comes It Is all
over wtlh the roses affected, and they
have to be dug up and destroyed. Too
much moisture about the roots Is the cause
of another of the American Beauty rose's
deadliest menaces. ' The roots begin to
rot, almost In a day, and the work has
to be done all over again.
"Sunlight is our capital," says Paul Pier
son. "It we didn't have plenty of that
rose growing would be out of the question.
June is the month of the year In which
the conditions for rose culture are the
most favorable the ideal month. June Is
the month, too, when most roses are used
It far leads all the others, even the win
ter months, when entertaining in the big
cities Is at Its height. Tou see, there are
more weddings In June than at any other
time of the year. Then there are the
commencement exercises that take a vast
number of roees. Aside from these the
lnorease is principally due to the number
of people embarking for Europe at that
"Yes, during June we frequently send
away 20,000 beauties, and even more, in a
single day. Another reason why these roees
are used so largely in June is that they
cost less to raise them and are cheaper
than In any other month of the year. They
touch the top price about Christmas tlmo,
and ws generally get $1.60 apiece for them
from the big florists In the great cities.
How much they sell them for I don't know.
"Did you ever know that a rose nueds
sleepT t needs sleep Just the same as a
person. But less of it, curiously enough,
in the summer than in tho winter. We
have been making soma experiments with
some of the new artificial lights to see If
we cannot fool tha roses during tha win
ter into thinking that the days are twelve
or fourteen hours long. I do not think it
would be practicable to try to force Ameri
can Beauties or any other roses by at
tempting to grow them under. combina
tion of artificial light and sunshine with
out giving them any rest at all."
Asacrlcoa beautiee are divided Into six
gradia: "Specials," "fancies," "sxtros,"
"firsts," "seconds" and "thirds." These
terms are used to designate the degrees of
perfection In the blooms that are hardly
apparent to anyone not an expert. Each
has a different price from the "specials,"
which are most perfect In every , detail,
down to the cheapest, the "thirds,"' which
have the 'most defects. This Is the way
they are bought by the dealers. When
they are bought by the general public the
grading Is not used. As a general thing
the biggest dealers buy only "specials," the
magnlHcent long-stemmed varieties. The
others go to the grades down the line.
"No attempts have beon made," contin
ued Mr. Plerson, "to chango the color of
the American Beauty. It can be made a
little brighter by keeping the temperature
of tho greenhouse a little lower than Is
customary, but this hardly pays on ac
count of the risk. If the temperature gets
a shade too low It starts all sorts of
things." New Tork Press.
TIRED OF AN OLD BARGAIN
Strange Contract Entered Into by a

"The Jennings annuity," as the gift Is

much interest and discussion among the
financial experts of the state.

Athol, where he then resided, and pro
posed to give 9,O0O outright to the town
on the condition that Athol pay him t per

Jennings would receive yearly during his
