TIPPING IS ANCIENT. In 8hnkpeare' Time It Used to Dt Called Valltglvlng. Tho word tip Is of compnrtlvoly mod cm origin, ns It used to bo vnlls, n eliortoucd form of nvnlla or profits. Wo spent now of llio nvnlla of nn estate or of a business transaction. A hun dred yenrs ngo they culled firntnltles lo servants or waiters vnlls. Dr. John son's dictionary, published In 1755, do tines vails ns "money rIvoii to Hcrvnnts ns n perquisite, or pre.ent rather tlmn In tho way of wnfjes." Dean Swift mentions n person "whoso rovcniios, besides vnlls, ninotitiled to 13." Shnkc Hpenro uses tho word In the sumo bciiho wliero ho tnnkos one of tho fishermen In "I'crlcles" miy, "Uut Imrk you. my friend, 'twas wo thnt mnde up this ftnr tnent nnd thero nro corinln condol mcnts, certain vnlls." Ho wanted to bo condoled with n tip. Tlio practlco probably continued to prow after Shnkespearo's time, for late In tho eighteenth century n philan thropist nnd reformer of the period published a tract npnlust Indlscrltn lnnto nlmsRlvIng, nnd donounchiK the vnlls practlco ns demoralizing both to thoso who (,'nvo nnd to those who nc copied tho gratuities. This early re former was .loans Unnway (17121780). who, after writing n boolc of onstem travel, undertook to reform some of tho noolnl vices of his dny. lie do iiounccd vnllsglvltig nnd pruetlred what ho prenched by refusing to pay moro tlmn the stipulated price for ro frcfdimcnbi or for any kind of service or to glvo gratuities to norvnnts who received wages. IluL his cnisndo died with him, nnd vnlls still survive under tho odious niimo of tips. Indianapolis News. ANTS HAVE FIVE NOSES. The 8tnie of Smell le Very Important to Theie Inieets. In their nntenune, or feelers, nuts hnvu live noses, each of which has Its own duties to perform. Ono iioho tells tho ant whether It Is In Its own nwit or thnt of nn enemy; nnother noso dlscrlmlunlos between odors of nuts of tho sumo Hpeehm, but of different colonies; n third misnl or gnu rervos tho puriwwo of illmeriiln tho scent laid down by tho nut's own feet, so thnt It mny bo nble to rutracc tho way cpillo oaslly; a fourth nose smells tho lnrvmi nnd pupao, and the Ufth homo detects tho presence of nn enemy. If nn nut bn deprived of n certain nose, It will llvo pencwibly with ene mies, but If It retains Us fifth none. It will light tho alien to tho death. There Is a difference In the functions of nose ono nnil Mono lire, although they np pear to Ixt Homewhnt nllke. This senso of smell does not romu till the nuts are threo days old.

It is abso lutely necessary for us to raise a large amount of money now to do with this stock what we much desire. It is our purpose to maintain the Toggery as a MEN'S STORE and the old store will perhaps bo maintained as an exclusive ladies' and children's store. To arrange the stocks as is needful to carry on the two stores, we must sell from both the stores a large amount of goods. We announce, in the Toggery store, a Fifteen Days Re-arrangement Sale beginning Sept. 1 0th. We are not starting the sale sooner because of just having closed our year's business in our other stores. i t ' BON HAM & CURRIER RESOLUTION Kent Watch on HI Mm.
