There are many causes of get

Stop over-work,. if ycv. can;

W ell, George, your article for an inde

order. The trouble with the oid parties
is that ihe leaders are too corrupt, con
sequently tbey try to get men on the
ticket of the same type.
There is a party serving under the
present administration that is no more
fit for the position than the writer is for
the president's chair. If people would
vote independent we would have clean
er politics and get better men to serve
us. Some may say that we cannot ac
complish anything in that way. Is not
the working class in the majority? Be
sides, if we voted to cut the salary of all
officers in two, the ollice would seek the
man and not man the office, but some
may say that we cannot get competent
men. Well, as to that, juet try it and
see. Alost of the class get but $450 per
year. Now, the question is, "is it just?"

" Calling the Boor.
Tber to one place In London, and
nly one, where the ancient custom of
keeping a watchman to call out the
hours is still maintained. This Is at
New Inn, which In spite of Its name is
one of the oldest inns of court The
servants there are quite proud of the
age of the place, and It was one of
them who said one day:.
"Why, sir, this inn was here In the
time of Charles I."
After a long pause, to allow this stun
ning fact to percolate through the brain
of the hearer, he extended his arm and
added with emphasis:
"And It was here In tho time of
Charles II.!" .
Some vague notion of tho disturb
ances which Intervened between the
two reigns had probably been floating
through the man's mind, but how an
exlstlnS Institution could possibly have
dated from the reign of Charles I. with
out coming down through tho reign of
Charles II. he failed to explain.
Beginning at the stroke of 10 o'clock
every night, the watchman In the yard
of New inn "calls the hour" In a sten
torian but musical voice: . . ...
"Ten o'clock, and all's well!"
The words are heard In the adjoin

The Indian Dock Trick.
A little tin or earthen can or some
times half a cocoanut stf 11 supported
on three stoues Is filled with water on
which is sprinkled a red powder, ren
dering It practically opaque. A little
duck of wood or porcelain Is placed
upon the surface, where It at first
floats, but at the command of the per
former suddenly dives, remaining sub
merged until again ordered to rise.
This very Ingenious trick depends
upon the fact that In the bottom of the
vessel there Is a minute hole through
which passes a hair. One end of this
Is attached to the duck; the other re
mains at the disposal of the performer
and Is attached, by means of a pellet
of wax, to his tomtom or to one of the
hands with which he beats IL When
he wishes the duck to dive, he pulls
the har. W'hen he desires It to rise,
he relaxes the pull.
There Is naturally some amount of
leakage through the pftihole, and to
cover this the performer takes care,
when filling the pan, to accidentally (?)
spill a little water. The ground being
thus already wetted, the fact that It
gets a little more Is not noticed.
The Thing to Kin Amt'.WI' Slllar.
Wealth Is a relative term. One man
may be passing rich on 40 a year, and
another may be miserably poor on
400. This was beautifully Illustrated
to me the other day, when, driving past
a popular Ayrshire "place of drinks," I
was hailed from the roadside by a man
who claimed friendship on the strength
of "living next door when we were
boys." He was cettlng married, he
said, and on that I suppose, was feel
ing unusually happy.
'Man, come on In and let me staun
you something," he said. "Don't think
I've nae money. There's a pound note.
