QUEcR NAMES FOR HORSES Jehn-Wlllle-Come-On and Woiild-You- Belleve-lt Samples of Equine Nomenclature. WANTED—MAN Kreaaea. TO WORK AT How much truth there is In the story 1 know not. but it is tdld that Vhen Capuin Boyd told Lady Lillian that he had bought a yearling'sbe replied. "What a senseless thing to do." "SenselesE! Good." reiterated the captain, and forthwith, feave the colt that name. It was appropriate, for this gccd-look-ng gray horse,. which now b (i !uDg£ to .Major McLaughlin, is by "Grey i<eg." and out of a mare called "Senses." There are some owners who have considerable difBculty In naming their race-taorses. and it is said of the late Earl of Glasgow that his frienids had quite a task to get him to cbrlaten them.. The testy Earl used to say that a horse should prove itself worth a name before one was given to it One evening be was Induoed to christen three, and tbe following were tbe names imder which they- ran: "GiTe-Hlm-a-Name," "He-Hasn't-Oot-a- Name," "He-Isn't-Wortb-a-Name." There are not a few horses which have run in recent years with equally /oolish and much more meaningless nomenclature. For instance, f'John- Willie-Come-On" and "Would-You-Be- lleve-lt." There ought to be a censor of racing nomenclature, for aome of the titles chosen for horses detract from the dignity of tbe sport—Oentie- woman. Sensitive. •Tou've lost him for good this time," said the master barber to one of bis aasistants as a customer went out and slammed tbe door behind lilm. ; "Yes. but I forgot." "Tbat'B no excuse. If yon can't attend to business, you must go." "What'a tbe trouble?" inquired a customer. "He dldnt brush the gentleman's head." "But bit bead was a bald aa an •gg!" "Certainly, and that la why be should bare bAsbed it. Bald-headed men are very sensitive; you must use the brush tbe same aa if thejt had plenty of bair. To do so givea them an idea that you don't take particular notice of their baldness." "And wont that customer return r* "Never. He'll try aome otharrbar^ faer'a next time, ind^wUl eves advla* bU fMenda to aviM atla." ,1 Tljere will be 6 meeting for men only in the Refornied church next Sunday afternoon at 3. o'clock under tbe auspices.of tbe Committee of One Hundred of the Men and Religion Forward • Movement. The meeting will be addressed by local speakers and will include every department of the work. This will probably be the last meeting before the special eight day campaign January.Tth to 14th and will be of much importance to all men interested in the religious welfare dC the men in Iola and vicinity, especially in giving to tbbse in attendance an insight into what the Eight Day Campaign will embrace and enable men who cannot attend throughout the week to deolde which of the meetings will be tbe most valuable to tbem. At some time during tbe campaign there will be two distinct institutes lo session at the same time In different churches and upon different subjects, wblob will make it im possible for any person to attend :a(l the institutes. ' The local committee has almost perfected the program, which will be printed and ready tor distribution within a few days. The program will be manned by some ten or twelve men from Kansas City who are specialists, each man upon his own subject k is expected that the coming campaign will mean more for the religious interests of tola than anything in recent years or possibly more than any one campaign ever held. Not «o much In the way ef immediate results which ought to be large but more especially in the pre- p.irihg and equipping of each • local church for more extensive and efilci- i-nt work In all the years to: come. The churches are supported and main tained not so much for tbe satisfaction of worshipers having a convenient place to worship, which in itself is a great source of joy to the church people, but more, far more is the purpose of the «bnrch to reach those who do not realize the importance if religion In their own lives. This however, the churches keenly realize, that the general public doea not realize, and it is hoped la this campai^ to so prepare, the churches for ra* ture work aq well as yorsblp tbat the , non-church-gfolng-people' may be enn- i abled to see-that the churches do cart? for tbem, and-that- tbe most important Interest to any person is' his. relig: ious interest and that the churcbos are at the services of .every person to assist him in every possible way to take care of his religious interests. It Is hoped that the meetings will tife well att&nded next ' Sutiday* and a clear insight Into the coiWng--cam-i paign will be gotten by cheAnen of Iola that they may be prepared to make tbe most of what promises to be one of the greatest of religious op-J] portunitles ever to be presented to* the men of the city. —.Majestic and Elite Five Cents.
