One day a lad saw a young gosling
struggling In tha grasp of a huge

It must have soon become Its snt agon-
ist's victim. The youth continued bis

Origin of the Word News.
Tha principal of the Hawthorne
'grammar school of Oak Park. Ill a
wealthy suburb of Chicago aire an
exposition of how the word "new a"
was originated that Is a new one to
the editor. He stood before his pupils
and pointing In each dlrectlona said:
"The word newa la made up of the
Initials of the four joints or (he corn-
pan a and waa so made because newa
comes from the N orth the K-aat. the
W-est and the fl-outh." It Is character-
istic of newspapers that while the
news of the day 'a hup pen in as cornea
from all point a of the compass no the
advertising columns of ncwppeni tell
the husluess news of the day as It
happens In all directions from the
renter! ng point of public Information.
A person who reads the "news" fulls
to get all the news unless he also
reads the advertisements.

' There was an air of hrnve farce
about the scene enacted nt the French
village of Clermont dt l oine recently
No less a personage than t tin pro-
curator general visited the village to

the aitspMoua occalon. Thla ho did
with such vigor and success thnt
when It came to hla turn to be qm-
tinned he could hardly aland upright
The procurator general noticed the
man's condition and commented ao-
verely upon It. Whereupon the police
man with drunken dignity and a good
deal of fumbling extracted his cote-
hook and attempted to draw up a
prooM-verbal am Inst the official for
"Intuits to an oihYer of the law In the
performance of his duties.''
Good Way to Deal With the Pool.
