Kn&liBh Clinrcii With a Bell Tower
Half a Mile Away. ,
It Is generally supposed that the vil
lage church of East Bergholt, Suffolk,
is the only one in England which pos
sesses an entirely distinct building for
its belfry. : The pells of this church are
hung in a shed many yards away from
the church and are "worked from above
instead of from beneath.! i-
The church ;of--s Warmsworth, how
ever, a village situated about two miles
from, Doncaster, can boast of a belfry
which is about half a mile away from
the church. As the crow flies the dis
tance between church and belfry, which
is known as Bell Tower, is ,2,350 feet,
the distance by road beiiig about half
a mile. . , . ,
The belfry Is by no means a make
shift building. The tower, in fact, is
said to. date back to the twelfth cen
tury, -and-the reason of its isolation
forms a rather curious' story. The
church was originally built on its pres
ent site to accommodate the villagers
of both - Warmsworth and Balby. the
latter village being half a mile from
the former.- '
The tower was then placed in Warms
worth in order that the parishioners
might hear the bell, which stops ring
ing a quarter 'of an hour before the
service in order to enable the bell ring
er to get to the church In time. Lon
THE "BONE AGE" IN KANSAS.
In Early Days the Plain "Waa Strewn
. With Buffalo Skeletons. -
The pioneers of Kansas -will never
forget, the "buffalo.; bone age." When
central. and southwestern Kansas were
settled the prairies -were strewn .with
buffalo bones., Those were hard times
in Kansas, and the gathering of these
bones enabled the early settlers to live
while . they were getting: their claims
"broken; out"'! for' the producing: of
that section of , ;Kansas and there I J3aritoh fott f
weren't Jmany . at ; thathad literally
inothing but a team and a, few house
hold goods that they bad hauled from
the east in a single wagon. Of course
there were no buffalo, for this was in
the; late seventies, but ' their bones
strewed the plains, and these bones
were the only thing that had a com
mercial value, and they were utilized.
They were hauled in great wagon
loads to the nearest railway, often
from sixty to a hundred miles away,
and sold. The horns were the more
valuable, and they went first, but the
rest of the skeleton soon followed.
There were no fortunes made by these
early bone hunters, for a large load of
buffalo bones brought only from $5 to
at the railroad towns, but the pro
ceeds from a load enabled the settler
to bay a-little flour, coffee and occa
sionally meat and lumber. Kansas

Here Is the latest, parrot story. A
certain retired general of the Indian
army possessed a parrot and also a
very Irascible temperament. ' The par
rot was a valuable bird, but was rather
a nuisance by reason of Its extreme
talkativeness. One day while the gen
eral waa; writing his business letters
the parrot kept up a continual chatter, I
very disturbing tot the writer.' At last
the general could stand' it no longer,
and, jumping up, he seized the cage -of
the unhappy bird, which he whirled
vigorously round - and round, . at 1;h,e
same time shouting furiously. .Then
he set the cage down again, and- si
lence for some time ensued.' At length,
however, a feeble voice came from the

Mr.' Bryan at Salem-"Jostling at Est

The power of a personality was ia
evidence at Salem Wednesday ev
ening. The jam at the Bryaa
meenng was the sign of it. Safeaa
is a comparatively small to.vn aad
is politically out of harmony witii
Mi. Bryan. But it tumbled over
itself in the effort to hear hira
The address was in the theatre.
The building is on a corner antS
the street on both sides was e
to the middle by an elbowing jostl
ing throng two hours before tle
doors opened. Men forgot them
selves and fought with weak wom
en in pushing their way to a van
tage point. It was cold and the
street was muddy but an indesciib
ablcmassof stampeded humanity dog
its elbows into other people's, iibet
and surged toward the entrances,
front and back. When the doors,
were finally opened the pell mell
rush of the people was like the
stampede of a cattle herd with dis
order not less complete. If a woman
had fallen in the rush ot that mob
she would have been trampled o.
death. It was like the flood from
on broken reservoir dam, resistless
from its own momentum. Nobody
could have stopped to pick her nj
because of the impelling force from
those who crowded behind. When.
all were in that .could be sand
wiched in, when every aisle was
crowded with standing people,
when every niche and nook toad
i s occupant, there was still more
people outside than inside. That
was Mr. Bryan at Salem Wednesday..,
. , The speech was political1. But
it was different. It offended nose.. .
It is a kindly nature, a benevolent;
heart that joined in forming, Sbe
words, that fell for an hour- and
forty minutes from the speakes's
lips. It was a striking word ptct-:-ure
of the wide gulf between, thr
masses of republicans amf tLeit
leaders and ot the warm' sympatrry
between the motives and purposes
of democratic and' republican mass

days for the republic.

position to the wishes of nearly all
the leaders ot his party is one oi "
the remarkable phases of sc. 'sgr.
markable career. It was a :xtes
sage full of good cheer and con
spicuous with wit and humor of the
rarest order. Fun poked at Bins
self by the speaker not infrequent

and the many good laughs kept las.
hearers anxious for the rest of what
he had to say. Oh the stage, bed

A charm of the physical height
ens tha mental assets of Mr. Bryan..
A teauty of expression is . made
doubly forceful by the light from
a keen" but kindly black eye.
There is, a, delightful smile that
lights up the face when accentua
tion of the sentiment requires and
to. .which the listener involuntarily
respond?. - There is a voice that:
often drops into a most musical-
resonant ' power
that is , used with most delightful
effect- for emphasis. There is a
warmth of nature and cheer of
heart the moment the address be
gins that, glows vvarmer and cheer
ier until at the end it is a stream
of rapport, welcome to the audience.
There is. no studied oratory, but
simple words worked into a simple
sentence, quietly and- gracefully
delivered, but always with a melodic,
accompaniment of earnestness;
and sincerity. Such is the speaker
of whom it has been said that be
is not only .moulding the destiny
of bis own party, bat is largely
shaping the course of the opposite
party and is contributing enormous
ly to the betteiment of his country
and mankind, a mau , who has
spoken to more people, and who at

people than any other man that
