LONG RANGE GUNS MENACE TO FARMER Go.shen, Sept. 2S— F a m iers in this tow n are complaining of the dangers they are being- subjected to through the firing of long range rifles b-y parties, the indentities of whom have not been ascertained. One prominent farmer, residing a short distance from Owen’s Station, stated, this morning that w h ile he and others were employed in a field on h is farm three bullet.s whizzed by th e ir heads at short intervals. “The long-distance rifles can shoot a mile, and such reckle.ssness should be dis­ continued,” he declared. “If it is not som e life will pay the penalty as in th e CA?e I speak of, had th e bullets passed only a few inches nearer, one of us would have been shot. I tell you it is not a very pleasant sensa­ tion to hear bullets -whizzing past j'our h e a d »irul r t . i l i z i u g th a t you are in danger of being struck any m o ­ ment on your own property. Those •who shoot these rifles should plan to have th e bullets go into a hill and not fire at random.” TEACHERS EYE BURNED BY CURLING IRON Tk/TANY of the highest prized things in life, often through careless­ ness, neglect or perverted habits, are lost amid a wilderness of tveeds, whose rankness had l)oen permitted to overtop a wealthy soil. Penelope’s flower garden, which she elected to call “her own,” was Lieauti- fully laid out and gave great promise, but in an evil day, when she grew weary of pulling out the tares and 1 watering the buds, the weeds ran j amuck and ruined the plot about which ! Penelope had dreamed for weeks. ; When put to the test she preferred I the melancholy weeds to the rose and ‘ the lily. And so it was with William, who hud planned great things while in col­ lege, but the weeds crept in among his cherished amidtions and led him fur, far afield in a direction he never suspected. Up to a given point he \va.s a faith­ ful worker, so long as bi.s boyish hor»es bright en(>d his .sky, but when they faded he lost interest and did not Then came the day wlien the garden was choked with weeds. He smiled comphu'ently and accept­ ed his fate because he believed in luck. He had never been taught to hold to the ancln r of faith. But William had learned some risky games of chance, and could, when sud­ denly called upon to do so, shut his mouth very firmly and exhibit not the slightest sign of fear or discourage­ ment. He meant to he good ami true, and he sought to he fortunate and happy, but the weeds smothered him. The brilliant course he had consid­ ered must wait till another season, or at least until he shall give proof of his change of heart. He has ample ability, but even with his fine talents there springs up at regular intervals a crop of hot-headed weeds, sometimes growing in the night to present a sickening spectacle in the morning. William is hut a name for a thou­ sand young men who, in spite of pa­ ternal advice, insisted upon sowing their wild oats. Wiiliam has won the name of being wild and r* nkla.«?.«!, wlucli he admits. He re<(itrni/.e.s that he i.s a sort of moral cripple, too weak to strike out alone, too proud to accept advice. He is to be pitied, for lie really is not bad at heart and is nobody’s enemy but his own. {© by- M cC lure Ne-vvppaper S y n d ica t e .) Pine Bush, Sept. 23—^Miss Mildred Jansen, instructor in French in the local high school, ran a hot curling iron in her eye last week. She is recuperating nicely. Some person en­ tering Miss Jansen’s room attracted her attention and this distraction was the cause of the accident. Miss Mar­ ion Baker is substituting for Miss Jansen in the school. -tt .. ■■ ' --------- - Legend of the Raven There is an ancient belief that the raven was originally white but was turned black for its disobedience. The Greek legend is that Apollo sent the bird to the fountain for water but on arrival it found a fig tree -with fruit so nearly ripe that it decided to wait until it was quite so; and, since an excuse for the delay was necessary, it brought back to the god a water snake in his pitcher with the explanatipn that tlie creature had drunk the fountain dry.— Exchange. ----------------------- • ----------------—— Finns Trained to Work Finns are good athletes by force of circumstances. They get their train­ ing from the day they are born. When the child is old enough to go to school gymnastics is a part of his education and when he or she has graduated from, the school there is strenuous •work ahead, work for existence. Wom­ en must work as well as men. - They are not afraid or ashamed to do hard •work, attend the cattle, milk the cows and work in the fields.—Buffalo Ex­ press. \ ' A MYSTERY By DOUGLAS M ALLO CH TLTAPPENED on a mystery, Anyway it was to me; On the bank I found a book Down beside a shady brook, Yes, sir, yonder by “the crick** Found a brown arithmetic. How it got there, hard to tell; Maybe put there, maybe fell. There it lay, a book of suras Bearing marks of smudgy thumbs. Looking blankly at the sky Just as though it wondered why, How it got there. That to me Also Is a mystery. Near it was a fishing-hole. I could swear I saw a pole Prom the bushes- sticking out— It was there without a doubt; Not a split bamboo affair. Just an alder cut somewhere. And it seemed to me the line Wasn’t silk, but cottton twine. On the water, seemed to me. Something else that I could see; Just a cork, a cork of browa, Slowly bobbing up and down. It's a mystery, as I say; yor I’m sure there’s school today. (© by McClur® Newspaper Syndicattt.)

Swans Not Songsters Swans have been favorites of peo- T since ancient times. Greeks called ..cm the birds of Apollo. There are two fine species of swans in America —^the Trumpeter and the Whistler. They build their nests along the shores of lakes and on islands, from the Dakotas north to the Arctic re­ gions. People used to believe that a swan sang but once, and that was when it was dying. This is not tnie. The swans are great trumpeters, but they never sing. C h a p ters in B ible A lik a Tlie 19th chapter of II King.s tin'd the 37th chapter of Isaiah are identical in wording.
