LECTURES AT COURT HOUSE.
j Professor Redin Andrews delivered
a lectuce at the court house on Sun
day evening last There were present
about two hundred and fifty persons
yho proved to be patient and attentive
listeners. The subject; "Socialism
.from a Bible standpoint" drew out of
tne Ten Commandments and Golden:
Rule several relationships to harmon-.
Ize and unite temporal and spiritual
life. To bring about this improved
condition of society the professor
seems to recognize the great need of a
higher gospel enlightenment.

the Patrolmen of
Paris and Berlin.
patrolmen carry no clubs

a "dark lantern. The cuffs
coats have vertical stripes
blue and white signifying
distinguished service. During
quent showers and rains they wear
little waterproof capes. Their silent
regulation of street traffic by band
signal is a realization of perfection.
In Paris the ordinary patrolmen
wear blue caps and coats and in sum-
mer white duck trousers. They carry
short swords rather as an .emblem of
authority but In extreme dangerusc
the flat side as a club. In a downpour
of rain the Paris policeman hangs lib
cap on a hook in the back side of his
belt and draws over his head the hood
Of a short blue cape of heavy cloth
This hooded cape is. called a capuchin
and in its longer form reaching to the
knees is used by civilians as well in
cold or raiuy weather. Accordingly at
such times the streets of Paris seem
to be alive with cowled monks. Tin-

Is used on the Paris boulevards. The
policemen detailed for such duty wear

Straightening the Back.
It Is the custom In certain parts of
Scotland among the woman laborers
in the field when their backs begin to
ache from bending low while working
with short handled hoes to lie down
their faces upon the ground and allow
others to step upon the lower part of
their backs with one foot several times.
This operation Is known as "straight-
ening the back." Chicago News.

"1 Expect to Be Comfortably Dead In
1908" He Wrote.
A very Inter.er.ting letter referring
to President Lincoln just after his first
Inauguration and written by John
nay Is dated Washington 3801 and
says in part:
"If there Is anything which more
than' all causes me to regret the intol-
erable press of business about the
president's office it Is the impossi-
bility of answering' the letters of my
best friends I have positively not had
a moment's leisure since we arrived in
this city. The- throng of office seekers
Is absolutely fearful. Tiey come at
daybreak and still arc coming at mid-
night "You know that in anything I can do
you can command me but you over-
rate my influence. Mr. Lincoln posi-
tively refuses to make any recommen-
dations for positions in the depart-
ment; he rejects the entreaties even of
bis most intimate friends and rela-
tives." In another letter Washington Dec.

"Walter Noyes was appointed on the
recommendation of two Rhode Island
senators Burnslde and Anthony. I
did not pay McKInley's debts. I never
called him William in my life nor dldl
he ever call me John. Our Inter-
course has always been of the most
formal character. I have absolutely
po clahu on him for myselfor friends."
And In another letter" Hay writes
from Washington t t
"I am old. sick and busy and I have
not a moment at my disposition be-

A BUCKET OF WATER.
Right Place When Needed It
Prevent a Conflagration.
A single bucket of water even a
cupful thrown on a blaze at its start
often does more good than a reservoir
full ten minutes later. And yet In not
one out of a thousand American homes
is a single bucket of water dedicated
to fire protection. The only excuses
for this negligence are ignorance care-
lessness total disregard of property
and life. Poverty may explain the ab-
sence of structural protection but no
one who has a home Is too poor to
afford a bucket of water. Even 25
cents spent for fire palls will measur-
ably Increase for years the safety of
a house and that of Its Inmates. And
the only attention this very effective
fire apparatus will need Is an occasion-
al refilling from the pump or tap.
The virtue of the bucket of water
kept exclusively for fire purposes is
that it Is always there when you look
for It and always fun of water. There
Is to be sure lots of' water around the
bouse (except 'when the pipe or pump
has frozen) but by the- time oe can
find a bucket take It to the tap or
pump wait for It to fill a ad tbea take
It back to the fire not one Docket but
ten are- needed. If however you can
dash Into the hall seice a ready filled
bucket and souse the blazing curtain
all within twenty seconds one bucket
generally wfll be more than esoogfc
as good as a whole fire department
and for less destructive than its super-
fluity of watex.
The family that cares anything- at
all for Its belongings should keep at
least one bucket of water on a little
bracket In the haU on each floor and
another bucket In the garret Down
cellar there should be a barrel of wa-
ter and a bucket not far from the
furnace. The water In the garret or
cellar may be kept from freezing In
cold weather by adding common salt.-
