At the conclusion of the service, when the signal for the large congregation to rise was given, there was an ominous "r-i-p-p-i-n-g" sound from all parts of the house, and expressions of dismay on the faces of many persons as they hastily felt to see if any of their clothing had been torn away. In some cases the cloth gave way, and. in others the varnish. The trouble has been remedied by scraping the varnish off the pews. A Combination of Fun, Facts and Foolosophy recording them on the margins of pages. Thus it has been noted that in "Around the World in Eighty. Days," the hero reaches his club as the clocks of the town are striking "10 minutes to 10"; that in "Monte Cristo," the author or translator makes the crew stand by to drop anchor and leap to the sheets simultaneously, and Rider Haggard makes an eclipse of the imoon take place when the moon is new.

The shock caused by the sad drowning of young Keyser had not passed away when news came last Saturday afternoon of the death of another young man there. Edward E. Earl, 19 years of age, with his father, was fishing from a boat in the south end of the lake, opposite the residence of Mr. Sperry and not far from the shore. Mr.' Earl was sitting in the middle of the boat, with hjs back to his son, when he says he heard the young man groan and looked around just in time to see him falling into the water. He ran to the stern of the boat to seize him when he should rise, but after waiting a sufficient time and the boy failing to come up he hastened to the shore for help. J. P. Leitch, of Bremen, happened to be passing, and ran to Mr. Earl's assistance. Securing a garden rake, he finally succeeded in finding the body anl bringing it to the surface, and attempts were made at resuscitation, but without avail. In the part of the lake where the accident happened there is a rank growth of vegetation, and the bottom is covered with a soft ooze. flea, And he let out a yell "That's a horse on me." f 3fr HAND-TO-HAND STRUGGLE.

As in other members of the family the fruit of the lupin consists of seed-bearing pods, but no attempt has been made to use them either for forage or for human food until recently, says the Detroit News.

And speaking of barbers, Bill Blunk the other evening was telling us some of his experiences with his customers.

Mil- ler, North Liberty; room 7, Miss Sold Ey KOONTZ BROS., DRUGGISTS CENOL AGENCY People from the first day of this sale started taking advantage of the low prices. Many times people have asked "why is it we can buy furniture for so much less in this store than we can elsewhere?" Here are some of the reasons: Our store has no rents to pay. Believes in f quick sales and small profits. Advertises strongly through the merchandise it sells. Has no commission men in the store. Has no collectors, and we are satisfied with the accounts. Our salesroom, workroom and warehouse are all under one roof. Our Guarantee is something real and worth while. It goes with every article sold in this store. It endures as long as you use and enjoy the furniture. Selling only the best in quality, we are able and glad to cover our sales with this guarantee and to assure all that every article is right today, will be tomorrow, and years to come. Should there ever be occasion for complaint, you will find us ready and eager to rectify the trouble. Costumers complete satisfaction is our desire and unless every transaction is exactly to your liking, we have missed our merchandising aim.

Finally, driven to the verge of desperation, the chairman decided the only thing left for him to do to stop the flow of words was to strike the table with his gavel. Raising the wooden hammer he brought it down with considerable force but owing to his extreme nervousness he missed his aim and hit the man next to him a resounding blow on the head. The fellow weaved in his seat, batted his eyes then mumbled to the chairman: "Hit me again; I can still hear him." I still do. QUERY.
