I PERSONAL INJOKy AT KAH.ROAD CROfS- IXG3 The Indiana supreme ;ourt has made an important ruling on the subject of personal injury at railroad crossings. The decision follows: (1) Where a peri on crossing a railroad track is injured by a collision with a locomotive or a train, the fault is prima facie his, and unless he affirmatively shows that his fault or negli gence did not contribute to the Injury he can not recover. (2) Oae who approaches a highway crossing over a railroad track li charged with the duty to proceed with caution, and if he attempts to cross either on footer in a vehicle he must exercise ordinary oare and prudence and ae§ume that. there i» no danger. (3) The question of oare at a railroad crossing aa affecting a traveler is no longer, as a rule, a question for the jury, but prescribed as a matter of law. (4) One attempting to cross a railroad must listen foa signals, and look out not only for signs of warning 1 , but attentively both ways for approaching trains; and if by looking he could have seen an approaching train in time to avoid injury, it will be presumed that he did not look, and must be adjudged guilty of contributory negligence. (5) The absence of a flag- man from a crossing- where duty requires him to give warning to travelers will not excuse one about to cross from exercising the sense of sight and hearing to ascertain to himself the approach of trains. (6) If facts, in a special verdict are such that the court can adjudge as a matter of law, that the loured party was or was not guilty of contributory negligence, the finding of such alternate fact by the jury will be disregarded by the court.

Silver weddings arc not uncommon, but a silver betrothal falls to the lot of few. • A case of that kind is reported from.Berlin. • The engaged couple first pledged their troth in December, 1SGO. The young lady's aunt, however, threatened to "cut her oft' with a shilling-" if slit; dared to get married. Consequently, the loving- couple had to forego their most, ardent wish, viz: the prospect of a speedy marriage. Still, they..remained true to their pledge during" this interminable courtship. Not long- ago the obdurate aunt departed this life, but by desire of the intended husband the tveddiEg- was postponed to enable the couple to celebrate the twentv-fifth anniversary of their betrothal. ihere is a good'deal of public praying^done that don't mean anything in Heaven or on earth. .

Agent, Indianapolis, Ind. THAT BIG RIGHT HAND. tJaod More Than It» Mate It Grow* Big aucl Important. "I wish. I were ambidextrous," remarked a young woman who was seated at the glove counter of a Woodward avenue store. "I wear out so many right-hand gloves before those of the left hand that a pair would last nearly twice as long if the wear were more evenly divided between the two," says the Detroit Free Press. "Couldn't you begin now?" asked the young woman who was fitting- on the gloves. "Ne," with a sorrowful inflection; "I've tried, and taken several tumbles in consequence. I always use my right hand to open doors, to swing- myself on a street car, to clutch railings, to carry parcels and my umbrella, and hold up my gown, until my left hand has become almost useless. I couldn't save myself from falling with it." "It is the same with all ladies," said the glove fitter in a tone intended to be comforting. '•Yes, that is the worst of it. I can't see what parents and instructors are thinking: of to overlook, as they do, the value of the left hand. My right hand, because of the extra work it performs, is half a size larger than its mate. Have you noticed it?" "Oh, yes, indeed; we try all ladies' gloves on the right, hand first." said the girl as she fitted that useful member. Swedish Proverbs. Mrs. Baker, in her "Pictures of Swedish Life," says that the Swedish language is rich in proverbs. Many of these are exactly the same as are found in English: "The burnt child dreads the fire," and "Better late than never," for instance. Others, while corresponding to proverbs in English, have a turn peculiar to themselves. The following- are a few examples: "When the cat is away, the rats dance on the table." "A new broom sweeps well, but an old one is best for the corners." "One bird in the hand is better than ten on the roof." ' "When the stomach is satisfied, the. food is bitter." "To read and not to know, is to plow and not to sow." "That which is eaten from the pot never comes to the platter." AXD8KMKNTN. D OLAN»S OPKKA HOUSE S. B. Patterson, Manager.
