Incident reported ye'aterday. Kooney, with

the end of his gun barrel Into tha sticky
ooze. When he got out he carefully wiped
off the mud from the outside ot the metal
and co itinued to hunt for anything that
might happen to show up. Tha next thing
was a rabbit that stopped and sat curi
ously looking at him ten feet away. The
rabbit looked good enough to Itooney ana
he cut loose. A funny sort of sound fol
lowed and the rabbit Jumped up and ran
away, with Its furry coat soiled witn
mud. The mud In the end of the gun
barrel caused the powder charge to blow
off a section of Its muzxle. Kooney does
not know what become of the shot, but
Is certain that the long pellet of soft
mud spread Itself all over the astonished
rabbit. The fortunate thing was that the
gun did nothing mora than kick unusually
hard and Mr. Ilooney'a surprise was the
most painful part ot the incident.

Notices to property owners that psy-
ment ot their portions of the cost of the
Broadway pavement, totaling $G3,000, were
due, were put In the malls lata Thursday
afternoon and delivered by ths letter car
riers on the first round yesterday morn
ing.' Almost from, tha moment City
Auditor McAneney i pened his office at S
o'clock a rush to pay. the assessments
Vegan. Representatives Ot tha Odd Fel
low were waiting at the door with the
cash to pay the assessment ot 1237.77
against the OAi Fellows' temple property,
and thus had the distinction of being the
first to gat a receipt In full. The rush
continued all day, and Auditor McAneney
and City Treasurer Frank True expressed
their confidence that 75 per. cent of the
total cost of the Improvement would be
paid within te first few days.
Prompt payment really saves 10 per
cent of the paving bill. If the taxes are
paid within fifteen days after date ot
nolle the certificate price ot 3 per cent
mora than the cash figure will not be
exacted but If not paid within that time
certificates wilt be Issued and tlie assess
ment placed on the county tax books to
be paid In annual Installments covering a
period ot seven years with inlereat at 6
per cent." Cash payments thus save the
Interest for the entire period plus the i
per cent for certificates.

William r. llryan. bsolutely no rela

be the fatal mistake of the whole trans-4
action, uryaa ami pl&wi caiua to Coun

the Lindsay company.
Hayward missed his skins and tele
phoned to Lindsay, securing tha Informs
tlon that the skins had been sold there.
Then Hayward also came to town. While
mingling with tha crowds on South Main

a familiar odor. 11 trailed It up and
found It emanated from one of two men.

D. Rockefeller, J. Plerpont Morgan and
others, ar the blundering activities of
children compared with a plan submitted
to F oat matter D. A. Campbell today. Its
simplicity will surprise the world at Its
late discovery, for the plan Is to feed
rats to cats, skin the cats, back to the rats
In endless succession, tha only break In
which being the deduction ot the catsklns,
the sale of which Is to aupply tha profit
Tha writer, outlining hla plan, said:
We will start a cat ranch, getting
1.000,000 cats. Kach will have twelve kit
ten a year.1"; Catkins ar worth 10 cents
for white and 76 cents for blacks. They
will average SO cents each; there is 12,000,-
000 est skins a year, a dally gross Income
of soma $10,000.
A man can skin fifty cats for 12, and it
will take 100 men to operate the ranch,
leaving our profit over 19,000 a day. We'll
have to fel the cats. How?
"Start a rat ranch next door. Rats
multiply four times as fast cats. We
will have, therefore, four rats a day for
each cat, a plenty. How to feed the rata?
"Simple. Feed them on the cat bodies
a fourth ot a cat per rat amply suffi
cient. Thus, you see, the business will be
self-supporting and automatic all the way.
The cats will eat the rats and the rats
will eat the rats and we get the skins
