The subject of this notice was
about 17 years of age. She embrac
ed religion several years ago and
united with the Methodist church
and was an exemplary member
until the day of her demise.

was in possession of the religion of
Christ which entirely disarmed
death of its sting. She has ex
changed a world of sorrow and
trouble for one of eternal bliss.

Georgia’s Orphans Homes.
Bethesda Orphanage, near Sav

having been founded by Rev.
George Whitfield, the companion
of the Wesleys. It has had a
great history, furnishing a govern

of Bill Arp.
The care of the orphans in
Georgia beautifully illustrates the
motto on the early colonial seal,
“non sihi”, sed alus,” —not for

The new life that seems to to be
infused in the University of
Georgia is noticed particularly
in the announcement of the
School of Agriculture of that in

addition to the regular four years

two months is held each year, in
tended primarily forstudents who

longer period of time: and begin

new one year course will bo offer

would seem to he admirably adapt

men in every class. In line with
tins work it is noticed also that
excellent hoard is provided in the
hoarding hall of the University
at a etist of SB.OO. Board of as
high quality is not provided, we
believe, at any institution at so
low a figure. Every etVort seems
to be made by the administration
to make the cost of living as lit

fees are charged, the cost of a
course at the state University is
now as cheap as could reasanably
, be expected.

MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS’ CLUBS.

A Snubbed Cub Reporter.
Professor Richard Lynch Gar
ner’s return from Africa, where he
has been for the third time to study
the language and habits of the mon
key tribes, calls to mind a little in
cident in which he unknowingly fig
ured. The professor had just re
turned from a previous trip and
upon reaching the "United States
went at once to Chicago, where he
is connected with the Chicago uni
versity. The daily papers were anx
ious to get interviews with him in
regard to his study of the language
of monkeys. The city editor of the
Chicago News sent a young reporter
on the assignment and had forgot
ten about him in the work of the
day when the enthusiastic young
man rushed into the office and ex

“Well, the button is worth 80

Her Shrimp Salad.
Avery young and very inexperi
enced matron, a well known society
woman of New York, recently un
dertook to assume the entire man
agement, even to the smallest de
tail, of her household affairs, and
her directions to the servants are
conveyed to them in writing. A
few days ago, wishing to have some
dainty dish for luncheon, she
thought a nice shrimp salad would
be the thing and accordingly wrote
her instructions to the cook to pre
pare the salad and for the purpose
to order from the marketman “one
small shrimp.” The story leaked
out, and it will he many days before
she will be able to look into the
eyes of any of her friends without
seeing the small shrimp twinkling
therein.—New York Times.
A Bluff Sign.
“Watchman In This Building.”
This is the now sign that is ap
pearing on uptown apartment
houses in New York as a warning
to tramps, beggars and peddlers.
“It's a great scheme,” said a real
estate man. “Warnings to keep out
are of no value, and watchmen are
expensive, but the signs cost only a
trifle, and they work pretty well,
just as ‘Beware of the Dog’ signs in

After the expert had received his
instructions he sought out Mr. Bra

“And take mv wife with me?”
“Well, this is pretty short notice
to get ready to take a wife on such

“Why?” asked Mr. Brady.
“Because,” replied the employee,
“I haven’t any wife.”
So Mr. Brady’s agent went to Ja

Judson Clayton, proprietor of the
Lady Washington inn at Hunting
ton Valley, Pa., has a small marble
statue of General George Washing
ton on the lawn adjoining his house
that requires constant barbering to
keep it from raising a beard and
mustache. Periodically a growth
of moss makes its appearance on the
upper lip, chin and cheeks of the
stone figure, and if left untouched
for any length of time it develops
into a close cropped beard and mus
tache, giving to the image of the
Father of His Country an extremely
dandified appearance. If the moss
is not interfered with, it will grow
: to a point resembling the approved
cut that barbers give to the beards
of men of fashion. Every few
months the action of the weather
causes the face of the marble statue
to become coated with the velvety
moss, and a shave is in order. The
freak whiskers have made the stat
ue quite a curiosity in the vicinity.
Some interesting particulars ap
pear in Chambers’ Journal concern
ing cannibal plants and flowers and
especially the species recently dis
covered by Dunstan on the shores
of Lake Nicaragua. As this nat
uralist was walking with his dog
he was attracted by its cries of pain
and terror and, hastening to the
rescue, found the animal held bv
three black sticky bands, which had
chafed the skin to bleeding. These
bands were the brandies of a newly
found carnivorous plant, which has
been named by Dunstan the land
octopus. The branches are de
scribed as being flexible, polished
black, without leaves, secreting a
viscid fluid and furnished with a
great number of suckers by which
they attach themselves to their vic
tims. This uncanny product of the
vegetable kingdom is known to the
natives as “the devil’s noose.”
A Cinematograph Puzzle.
In cinematograph pictures of rac
ing motor cars the wheels at cer
tain points have been shown turn
ing backward. To explain this sin
gular effect M. Lumiere states that
when anew film is exposed at the
moment when each spoke in turn
reaches a given point the wheel will
appear stationary, the successive
views being exactly alike. But if
the films are traveling quicker than
the spokes each spoke is photo
graphed before it reaches the posi
tion of exposure of the spoke in
front of it, giving the wheel the ap
pearance of revolving backward.
A Magnetic Cannon.
The electrical magnetic cannon
invented by a Norwegian professor
has recently been given severe tests
at Christiania. The gun works mag
netically, the shell being drawn out
of the bore and not impelled, as by
gunpowder. The professor claims
that by the use of magnetism as mo
tive power a thousand pound shell
can be given greater range than by
any of the established methods.
The firing of the gun causes neither
smoke nor sound.—Boston Journal.
