Cramer, a rich Ohicasoau, bought at auction the other afternoon the entire - stock of a big board walk art store in Atlantic City. N. J.

Cramer drew attention to himself In the last few days by clearing thou sands of dollars in trades made In board walk brokers' offices. Seeking a. less exhilarating pastime, he entered the art stove, saw several pictures- he liked, then, weary of buying them one by one, said: "Say, what do you say to putting up the whole place and giving a fellow a chance to get through?" "The entire stock is for sale, and we would just as lief sell it in a lump," replied the proprietor: ' That's me." returned Cramer.

Cramer gave his check for the amount before the. crowd had filed out and at once gave orders that the purchase be packed and shipped to his country home in Indiana.

Here is a little human Interest story which comes from the Panama canal zone: '- Laurent Roquebert, general foreman of the dredging at La Boca, has been a dredgeman at the Pacific entrance to the canal for twenty years or more In fact, . since the time of the old French company. While at his work on the evening of March 29 he was crushed between two clapets and has been lying critically ill at Apcon hospi tal. Two days after the accident the resident engineer at La Boca went to see him and was greeted with the question: 1 ' ; " - ' "How many yards?" ' Requebert re ferred to the amount of dredgjng that' had been done in March, and when told that all records had been broken he asked: ' "And the Gopher what did she do?" The Gopher, like the dredgemaster, is a heritage from the French. It is a seagoing Scotch ladder dredge that' has been at work at La Boca almost con stantly for twenty-five years. Roque bert was at one titne the master on this dredge, and his confidence that it was the best worker in canal excava tion was unshaken until October, 1908, when dredge No. 1 of the Colon first took the record. In answer to the question, "And the Gopher what did she do?" he was told, "She', holds the record by ver 3,000 yards." . . The dredge master closed his eyes, sighed in satisfaction and said, "i am so happy!" SMOKE A BLESSING. E3i , Paints and Varnishes are the Best.

Rend, coal mag nate, in reply to an address by Secre tary E. R Pritchard of the Chicago board of health declaring it a nuisance. "This talk about smoke being a curse is all nonsense," llr. Reiki declared. "Take the coal operator, who is at all times breathing not only smoke, but coal d'u:;t in addition. His lungs are blackwith both, and yet he is one of the healthiest men in the World. In all my experience among coal oper ators I know of only one who died of tuberculosis. "The carbon in the smoke is a boon to health. As the smoke ascends the carbon contained in it kills germs of every kind of disease and purifies the air,' and it is this that this new clags or "reformers' would do away with." A Fair Offer.
