the following written report re
garding the sale of meats in the
Bakxksvim.e, G.v., Feb. 3, 1902.
To the Honorable Mayor and Council,
of the City of Barnesville;
The question having been submitted
j to me for my opinion as to whether
i those parties who bring meat to town
| and sell the same upon their wagons,
j are subject to a license or not, I beg to
report as follows, to-wit:
If such parties pursue the matter of
making such sales regularly as a busi
| ness or occupation, they are liable to
| pay said tax, or if fhey buy up hogs, or
cattle from other parties and slaughter
the same and bring the meat into the
city for sale, they are liable for said
If however, they casually bring in
the produce of their own farms, and
meat, derived from the slaughter of
hogs or cattle raised on their own
places, and bring the same into town
only casually ’and occasionally and do
not pursue such matter as a business,
then in my opinion, under the statutes
of the State, they are not liable to pay
any special license tax in our city.
Whether therefore any party is liable
to said tax or not will depend upon
particular circumssances in each case.

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED.

There is only one way to cure deafness
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con

Eustachian Tube. When this tube is
inflamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is en
tirely closed. Deafness is the result,
and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to its
normal condition, hearing will be de

HOW A GLOBE IS MADE.
The Process Used In Constructing a
Model of the World.
1 First, the model is covered with
a thick layer of pasteboard in a
moist state. When it is dry, a sharp
knife is passed around it so as to
separate the pasteboard coat into
two hemispherical shells, which are
then taken off the model and united
at the cut edges with glue. The
hollow sphere thus formed is the
skeleton of the globe that is to be.
The next thing is to cover it with
a coating of white enamel about
one-eighth of an inch in thickjaesf*.
When this is done, the ball is turn
ed into a perfect roundness by a
machine. The iron rod running
through the center of the original
model and projecting’at.both snds
through the surface hasfleifc holes
in the new globe, which serve for
the north and south poles, and
through these a metal axis is run to
represent the axis of the earth.
Then the surface is marked off
with pencil lines into mathematical
segments corresponding precisely in
shape with the sections of map tten?:
are to be pasted on. These myak
sections are made from cqg|>?ip
plates in just the size and shaper-re
quired to fit the globe that they are
intended for, one set, of course, cov
ering the entire spherical surface.
They are printed,- many of them,
like dress patterns, on sheets of the
finest linen paper, and are cut out
carefully with a sharp pointed knife.
When they have been pasted on,
the different countries are tinted by
hand with water colors. There is
no special rule for this except that
contrasts are aimed at as a help to
the eye of the user. Finally Hie
whole is overlaid with a brilliant*,
white varnish, which is of
metallic hardness and will wear rPw
definitely without scratching or lost ;
ing its brightness.—Milwaukee Se]sjjj|
Ants on “Horseback.”
A French explorer, M. Charles
Meissen, in traveling through Siam
observed a species of small gray ant3
which were new to him.
These ants were much engaged in
traveling. They lived in damp
places and went in troops.
To his surprise, he noticed among
them from time to time an occa
sional ant which was much larger
than the others and moved at a
much swifter rate, and each of these
larger ants, M. Meissen saw, always
carried one of the gray ants on its
back. This discovery led him to
watch their movements closely.
He soon saw that while the main
body of gray ants was always on
foot they were accompanied by at
least one of their own sort mounted
on one of these larger ants. He
mounted and detached himself now
and then from the line, rode rap
idly to the head, came swiftly back
to the rear and seemed to be the
commander of the expedition.
The explorer was satisfied from
his observation that this species of
ant employs a larger ant—possibly
a drone of the same species, though
he had no means of proving this—
as we employ horses to ride upon,
though scarcely more than one ant
in each colony seems to be provided
with a mount.
Saved. Him From Torture.
There is no more agonizing trouble
than piles. The constant itching and
burning make life intolerable. No po
sition is comfortable. The torture is
unceasing. DeWitt’s Witch Hazel
Salve cures piles at once. For skin
diseases, cuts, burns, bruises, all kinds
of wounds it is unequalled. J. S. Der
ail, St. Paul, Ark., says: “From 1865
I suffered withfthe protruding, bleeding
piles and could find nothing to help me
until I used DeWitt’s Witch Hazel
Salve. A few boxes completely cured
me.” Beware of counterfeits.
