tfa&t it requires a considerable time
for pressed -brick mortar to dry.
-Much of that in tt e pressed brick
work done on this new boildicg
"was not dry when the cold snap'
came, and laving frozen, the: mor

: The court house, including tbe

xhibiiive purposes tor the AU-iBentoa-'School-Fair
next Septem

'room for the purpose, but a change
of attitude has taken place. The
court baa ordered tbe courthouse
placed at the disposal of the com
mittee. for exhibitive and other
purposes. In addition, the sum of
4200 was appropriated in aid of tbe
fair. The understanding is' that
.the county is to have the exhibit
'when the All-Benion-Sohool-Fair
Is over, which will give the court
the finest kind of an exhibit to seed
1) the State Fair to take place with
in a couple cf weeks thereafter.

of tbe fund for ibe monument is al

out the plan Borne time ago, and
bas been working consistently ever
' - since: The sum of $300 has been
gathered together of the $1,000 that

timwlll provide a monument that
will In a fitting memorial - to the
-ol4 soldiers and their work,-and an
-adornment to the city of the dead.
" They have no suitable monument
now. The wooden affair that has
- marked their lot is out ol harmony
with its functioD. Their lot is near
'-the cemetery and is surrounded by
a circular walk. If all goes well
a new monument will be ready - for

ford's husbandly kindness was to
curb bit wife's religious frenzy. As
a woman of intelligence, . he- believ

ing and would return home. He
believed that she would eoon see
that he is the (g nt sppointed by
the Lord to py tor trarsportation
and hotel accommodations.
But Crawford was mistaken in
hie belief. His wife believed that
the money given her was given by
friends and strangers under inspir
ation. She did not see tbe band of
her husband in the gifts, and she
believed, eo she stated openly, tta.
be was "full of devils" because he
had refused to pay -her fair from
Los Angeles to Oakland.
: Mrs. Crawford has the child with
ber today.' ; She faid yesterday she
did not send Mildred to school be
cause the weather was too cold and
the child was siok. She was order
ed by Probation Officer White, of
the juvenile court, to send the child
to school Monday. If she does not
comply with thetrder of the court,
Mildred will be taken from her.
Before Monday, the cult say, the

to take the deported person to a
point without the state, and could
not legally be enforced, as tbe sher
iff's power ends at the state line.
The decision says in part:
"These women ttand eharged
with crime for which they have
not yet been placed on trial, so
they should be restrained within
the jurisdiction of this state, eo if
hereafter tbey become eaDe they
may be subject to the further order
of the court."
Just before the close of the opin
ion the writer says that while it
was being written the court was ad
vised of the. death ' by suicide of
Maud Creffield in the Seattle jail,
he? a8 ,her Proceedings are die-
missed. The writ of prohibition ie
granted to prevent the deportation
of Esther Mitchell, but as to pre
venting the signature of the order
that she is insane the order is de
nied. :'
It is presumed there will be a
motion for a rehearing, and after
that is disposed of some days will
elapse before the remittor is sent
down to the King county court, so
some days must elapse before tere
can be any further move in tbe case
at Seattle.

A. Proceaslon of Worms Seen In nB
sary and Xorvrar.
Ia some of the Hungarian forests
and in the pine woods of Norway there
exists a tiny, wormlike Insect 'called
the sciara, of the genus tlpulal - Dur
ing the month of July or early In Au
gust they gather together in large
numbers, preparatory to migrating In
search of food or for change of con
dition. When setting out on this' jour
ney they stick themselves together by
means of some glutinous matter and
form a huge serpent-tike moss, often
reaching a length of between forty and
fifty feet and several' Inches in -thickness.
" As the sciara Is only on an' av
erage about three thirty-seconds of an
Inch In length, with no appreciable
breadth whatever,-the number required
to compose a continuous line of the
size above mentioned Is almost Incal
culable. Their pace is, of course, very
slow, and upon meeting an obstacle,
such as a stick or stone, ' they will
cither writhe over or around it,' some
times breaking Into two bodies for this
purpose. ' .- -;- .. ;
M. Gnerin-Menevtlle, a celebrated
French naturalist, said that If the rear
portion of this wonderful snakelike
procession be brought into contact with
the front part and a ; sort of circle
formed the Insects will keep ,-moving
round In that circle for hours without
apparently noticing that tbey are -getting
no "forrader" on their journey. If
the procession be broken In two, the
portions will reunite In a short time.
The Norwegian ' peasants, when; they
meet one of these trains, will lay some
article of their clothing, such as a belt
or handkerchief, on the ground in front
of it If the procession passes over It
it Is regarded as a good sign, but if it
makes a way round the reverse Is be
lieved. FAIR PLAY.
A Flea That Us Respected by- Almost
All Classes of Men.
There Is an appeal to which nearly
all classes or" men ,give heed let us
have fair play. You may address a
sehoolful of :mlschIevous boys ' on, the
beauties of goodness, on the' evils of
cruelty or harshness to' their fellows,
and' they will ' laugh at you. - Exhorta
tions to' avoid 1 any abstract evil or
wrong and appeals to follow any ab
stract virtue will seem hazy; tp almost
any collectioM of ordinary, healthy and
lusty young boys,, but If their sense of
fair play be addressed there is a ready
Go among a crowd of wharfingers or
longshoremen or the' roughest and most
reckless 1 sailors, - who have -- neither
home nor principles of any sort, and
talk to them of the things of the head
or of the heart, and they . wtU think
that you are a harmless but' quite fu
tile specimen from crankdom. "Try to
awaken In them a horror of the brutal
ity of their usual life, speak in moving
terms of the force and beauty of' kind
ness or of virtue or of any attribute
of a polite and civilized society and
way of life, and you will be soliciting
the wind, talking to a statue, shouting
In the desert. But ia the most uncouth
assemblage and' in the vilest haunt in
the English speaking world ' mention
fair play and found your argument
and your plea on that basis, and the
effect is Instant and eloquent. Phila

3 Corned beef hash as made by (Sen
ator Hanna's cook was very popular
In ! Washington several years - ago.
When the head waiter of the senate
restaurant Wanted hash prepared very
carefully he 'ordered It this way: "One
corned beef hash for Senator Hanaa."
One day when the restaurant was do
ing a heavy business almost everybody
seemed to want corned beef hash.
"Corned beef hash for Senator Hanna"
had been ordered - fourteen times.
When the fifteenth order went down
to the Idtchen the chef ' shouted:
"That's fifteen orders :' for Senator
Hanna! He'd better watch out or he'll
founder hisself."

"Ha, here comes Ratcliffe with a

was equal to the occasion-' "Villain,"
