'-' Two Little Editors. ; Onca In A While is the name of a little paper published in Hydo Park, says a writer in the Chicago Record. Boy D.. and Phil F. Hawley _are Its editors and publishers, and the paper is now in its second year. The Brothers Hawley live-at 5845 Madison avenue, where the paper is Volume 1, No. 1, numbered only twenty-one, copies, tout the paid circulation is now more than 100. Once In A While ordinarily hps six ipages, and, while it is issued "seml-occasionally," Its editors, nevertheless, got out an extra on the birth of a baby at their home some tlme n ago. The two iboys are editors, publishers, business managers, compositors .and pressmen for, the paper. In the Christmas number of the paper .was an article on Maj. McfCinley, .who is now president of the United States. A copy was' sent to him at Canton, O., and he acknowledged its receipt through his private secretary; But there Is another Once In A While published in Chicago, and the other paper got the acknowledgment a£d printed it, not knowing that it had not been intended for its publisher. This letter read: . s "Canton, Q., Jan. 8, 1897.—Mr. Roy Dj<Huwley, Editor -of -Once-In A-Whlle, ^Chicago, HlT^MjHDear gi r: i am~c reeled by Maj. McKluley to thank you for. the Christmas number of your paper, Once In A While. Yours very truly, JAMES BOYLE, ' The photograph from which the pictures of' the^ Hawley brothers were drawn is "home-made." Roy Hawley is 15 years old, and attends the Hyde Park school; Phil is 13 years old, and is a pupil of the Ray school. _, A New. Game. 'Bring up your chaira and try a game of "Waterloo." Cut out "the diagram published below -and paste. It, firmly to a stiff piece of cardboard—or play on it as It is. The game, -which has •been invented for our boys and girls, Is. Exceedingly simple, but when you have learned it you find it much more interesting than backgammon or checkers. If any of you are to give an evening entertainment and don't know Just how to amuse your friends, try "Waterloo." It may also be played progressively, two at each board. To play the game cut from cardboard twelve email squares, six white and six colored. The player using the white pieces, or men, places them on one of the end rows, as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. The opponent's men are placed on 88, 39, 40, 41, 42 and 43. .Call these two rows the camp rows. •Therobject of .the game is for each player to try target all his men into hia opponent's camp row. The one who first does' this" wins. Observe the following' rules: Move'only one space at a-time (i, e., from one circle to another), except in case of a Jump. Always move forward, never backward, on either the diagonal or the straight lines. Thus, a. man on circle 4 in passing to the opposite camp row may move to 8 or 9, but not back ferora 8 or 9 to C Having reached .9, the next move may be to either 13, 14 or 17. ,' •. ; . ,: •;•/'•• ; Jumps are made as in checkers, except that the pieces Jumped are not :aken from the board. When possible, ;wo or more pieces may be jumped at the same time, as in checkers. No Jump can be made around an angle, as from 14 to 21—the pieces Jumped must He in a straight line. A player must jump when there is a chance. A study of this game will 'bring out aome very interesting problems. Duck* oa Their Summer Vacation. Almost any bright day at this time of year, if you watch the sky closely, you will see faint V-shaped' objects gong northward, high up 1$ air. If you Ive is the country, where everything is BUM, iwhaps you ma also h«#r a dt«taiil "quack, quACk." fey the Y- object t« m feek of wild gees* a gr»*at outcry: Thia 1* always on a* «. sign of a storm. Umjally th«se flocks follow wp river—the Mississippi or the Illinois— and occasionally they drop down Into a pond or stream to reat and feed. Here •Is where the sportsman watches for them. Plajrtng the Game of One of the Jolllest o! Jolly games goes by the name of "Observation." Take every one of the party into another room, says the Jenhess Miller Monthly, let them look around and then go out. Afterward give each per- Bdn a pencil and paper and ask him to tell what time it was by the clock how many colors there are in the carpet, how many pictures there are In the room (the one he went Into for a few minutes), where the chairs stood, how the curtains were draped and all sorts of things of this nature. . In the ginning of this game you must not tell the boys and girls why' they are allowed to go Into the other room; the game, you eee, Is to test their powers of observation—that Is, to find out how much they notice, how keen their attention Is, and so on, If at first not a single one can remember any of the things he is asked to tell, you need not be very much surprised. A good many grown-up people can look all around a room and* not be able to tell what they saw when asked. It is a very good thing In this world to keep your eyes open and learn by observation— that'is, by seeing—and this observation game is a first-rate lesson and a lot of fun at the same time. On an Old-Time Railroad. Years ago railroad travel wasn't as well developed as it Is today. A pas- -sengeF-on-the-old-FonlnBula-raUroad, "belweenriJattle" "Creek alod" tahslifig, Mich., tells of a ride he ^took many years ago. Not only was the road rough and dangerous, but, after going for some time at a snail's pace, the train stppped suddenly In the midst of a deep forest! For half an hour the engine puffed energetically, but the train did not start. At last the passengers grew discouraged and got off to see /what the matter was. They found that the fireman had run out of fuel, having used his last stick of wood. Accordingly the trainmen and passengers went off into the woods, picked up fallen limbs and logs, dragged them up, to the track and loaded them Into the tender. At last the fireman got up steam enough to blow the whistle; the passengers ' climbed aboard and the train started. In a few minutes, however, }t stopped again. Two of the leaders of , the wood crusade .wenLout_and found several cows lying on the track in fron glne. They helped the brakeman drive them off and then the train started again, finally pulling into Lansing safe and sound. Not much like rall- \Vlth tbo Speed of Lightning. Ten thousand miles in less than a minute—hovfr Is that for swiftness? Not long ago the editor of a newspaper in Chile wished to find out Just how long it would take for a telegram to go from London, England, to VaK paralso, Chile. Accordingly, arrangements were-made with, the telegraph and cable companies to keep open the wires. Ten minutes before the message was to be sent the wires were cleared along the entire ^distance and all the ordinary communications through the cables were suspended'. At the igiven astronomical time the dispatch was sent from London to Carcavelloe, whence it was transferred through a submarine cable to Pernambuco, and from there the Brazilian coast cable conducted the message to. Buenos Ayres, where It was dispatched over the South' American transcontinental telegraph line, arriving at Valparaiso flfty-flve seconds after leaving the London office, although the .distance It had to travel in this short space of time amounted to almost 10,000 miles, and the eight words of the message had to be repeated four times. Get-out-your geographies and see^if you can follow out the route taken by this message.
