NO CHANGE IN ALMANACS.
Same Style, Fame Snbject Matter In
Them for Many Generations.
"What I'd like to see," remarked the
druggist on the corner, "Is a family al
manac filled with half-tone pictures. It
would be a novelty to soothe the eyes
and mind. We, who have gone through
many years at this business and have
had ample time to digest the countless
free almanacs devoted to the relief of
all bodily ills and 'sure guides to
health,' know the average almanac
from cover to cover. The wood-cuts
that decorate some of them were made
for oar granddaddies and are as fa
miliar to their fading visions as they
sre Interesting to our own children. I
recall perfectly the almanac of by

cycles of time, with the eclipses for the

It bad an address to tbe sick and a ta
ble showing the mean time of diges

Then followed a choice variety of an
cient Jokes, Interspersed with the sun
and moon pbases for every month, each
day being marked with such phenom
ena and important events, such as
'Swedenborg born' or 'Kansas admit
ted.' At tbe bead of each month was a
woodcut representing some timely re
minder or scene of the month men
tioned. For Instance, January was
generally depicted with snow-covered
ground and woodsmen felling huge
trees. February showed tbe farmers
threshing grain In an open barn.
March displayed the arrival of the
seeds and April the sowing of them.
For Mar we bad a woman and chil
dren working In the garden planting
potted flowerj and in June the farmers
were gathering the first of their crop.
July showed a boy fishing In a pond,
with a stately bouse and fine-looking
windmill at bis back. August illus
trated tbe gra'n-cuttlng time and Sep
tember gathering of apples, pears and
other tree fruit. Then came the bar
vest of corn for October, a shooting
scene for chilly November and a warm
fireside with a giant Christmas tree
for bleak December.
"Tbe odd thing now about thia old
fashioned almanac Is this: Go over to
the next drug store yon meet and pick
up the first almanac you can lay bands
to. Ton will be surprised to note tha
marked similarity between tbe old and
the new. The latter is made up of tbe
features I hare mentioned as being In
tbe old, even to tbe 'unsolicited testi
monials selected from thousands re
ceived,' the table for foretelling tbe
weather throughout each year, and
perhaps the latest postage laws.
"It Is said that everything changes In
this blessed world of ours," said tbo
druggist, accusing to the New York

known tbe average almanac to shed its

African' Lion Killed at

In Africa relates a thrilling experience
which befell his family there. His
home at the time was In the edge of
the Transvaal wilderness, aud It was
there that the event occurred,
On evening about dusk my wife aud
child were sitting on tb veranda of
the bungalow. I was engaged a few
roda away, putting the finishing touch-
to a bit of wagon-repalrlug. The
servants were at the rear of the house.
It was one of those peculiarly quiet
evenings when nothing seems to break
the stillness. .
Suddenly I felt rather than saw.
something moving near the veranda. I
looked more closely, and to my horror
perceived an enormous lion stealing
along tbe ground in the direction of my
wife and child. My wife saw the crea
ture at the same Instant and despite,
her terror, fortunately remained per
fectly motionless and silent
Scarcely knowing what to do, I hasti
ly crept toward the side at the bunga
low to the open window of my room,
where I knew a loaded rifle w as leaning
against the wall. I cllaioed Iu at the
window, seised the rifle and leaped by
another window out upon the Veranda.
There was no time to think; the lion
wss within a few feet of my dear ones
and crouching for a spring. I called
softly to my wife not to move, and then
fired. ' -
The ball passed directly over my
boy's head and lodged In the forehead
of the Hon, Immediately above the eyes,
and stretched him on the ground.
There was an Instant of fearful sus
pense. Then I fired again, but the sec
