GOT A FULL VOTE.
Even Though They Had to Go to Jail ta
That tbej bad some rather advanced
kli-aa aa to ttie iui'hus of "getting out
!lie vote" to New England a century
tgo In shown by an extract from Dr.
Hunks' "History of Marthas Vineyard."
The voting, w hich occurred In 1S07,
a aa on the question of the removal of
;he county seat.
Extraordinary means were taken to
rrt out a full vote In Edgartown. The
lulling of ships was delayed for weeks
to that their crews might vote, and on
the day of the town meeting it was
round that the contest between the
two factions was to be close.
Some one suggested that there were
icveral voters who, unfortunately de
prived of their liberty, were languish
ing in the town Jail, and if the jailer
would kindly allow them to step
cross the street and vote it would
ronsume but a few moments of the
Uuie the prisoners .owed to the coun
ty. The Jailer did not feel that he had
the right to allow a general Jail de
livery even for such a worthy object,
although it might save Edgartown.
It was then proposed that the ballot
box be carried over to the gentlemen
who were incarcerated. The point
was then raised th.it all ballots mast
l cast in open meeting and in the
presence of the election officials. Nev
ertheless astute minds found a way
out of this awkward dilemma. A mo
tion was made and carried that the
meeting adjourn to the Jail There the
ballot box was carried to the door of
each prisoner's cell, and the Imprison
ed voters reached through the bars
and deposited their ballots.
A BIBLE VERSE.
It Surprised tha Boy Who Boasted af
Hia Wonderful Memory.
A boy who had won a prize for
learning Scripture verses and was
gTeatly elated thereby was asked by
a minister if it took him a long time
to commit them.
"Oh, no," said the boy boastfully; "I
can learn any verse in the Bible in five
"Can you, indeed? And will you
learn one for me?"
"Then in five minutes from now I
would like very much to hear you re
peat this verse," said the minister,
handing him the book and pointing out
the ninth verse of the eighth chapter
"Then were the king's scribes call
ed at that time In the third month
that is, the month Slvan on the three
and twentieth day thereof, and it was
written, according to all that Mordecai
commanded unto the Jews, and to the
lieutenants and the deputies and rul
ers of the provinces, whicti are from
India unto Ethiopia, a hundred, twen
ty and seven provinces, onto every
province according to the writing
thereof, and unto every people after
their language, and to the Jews accord
ing to their writing and according to
their language.' "
The boy entered on bis task with
confidence, but at the end of an hour
could not repeat it without a mistake
and bad to tearfully acknowledge him
self defeated. St Louis Globe-Democrat
Some of the most dangerous tricks of
animals are those of simulating kind
ness. Charles Montague In "Tales of
a Nomad" says that hyenas often fol
low Hons and finish a carcass the mo
ment the lions have left It Sometimes,
however, the hyenas are too eager and
teal bits of meat while the lions are
still at their meal.
"I have been told that the lion rids
himself of the nuisance In the follow
ing way: lie throws a piece of meat
aside. When the lion is looking the
other way the hyena dodges In and
rushes off with the meat Presently
the Hon throws another piece of meat
this time a little nearer. The hyena
takes that also. At last the lion throws
a piece very near indeed. The hyena,
having become reckless, makes a dash
at this also, but the lion wheels round
and lays him low with a pat of bis
paw and a growl of annoyance."
Showed Him the Point
A large crowd which collected on
Broadway attracted the attention of
two commercial travelers Just buck In
New York. Joining It, they discovered
that a sufe was being raised to the
fifteenth floor of a building and that
the crowd was careful to stand out
side the roped feuce. "That's a good
advertisement for my business," re
marked one of the drummers, who la
Interested In the sale of airships. Ills
companion admitted he didn't see the
point "Well, look at the sign, 'Dan
ger below r Then look up in the air.
Dunger below, safe above. Moral,
take an airship." New York Tribune.
"How would you like to go to a bo
hemlau supier? Lot of literary people
and all that, you know."
"No; the bohemlans are too free and
easy for me. Last time I went they

story about Mark Twain, who
said he was a bigger man than
George Washington; because while George
"couldn't tell a lie," Mark could, but
wouldn't. Washington's fame is secure
because he did what he thought was best
for all; and his judgment was good. Per

The members of the association
were so earnest In the matter of the
schools that they showed a desire to
do something then niid there. A r.'s
olution was therefore offered which
created spirited discussion. The res
olution committed the School and
Home Association to Its support in
introducing music into our schools
whenever the school hoard finds the
time ripe. In the discussion the
thought was brought out that music
must not crowd out manual train
ing and gymnasium work, which
already have first place In the desire
of the public. The association rec
ognized tliis as the greatest need,
but It also put Itself on record as de
sirous of encouraging the addition of
tlie teaching of music.
Hue music ndded greatly to the
pleasure of the evening, the follow
ing taking part: Culver Osgood, vo

the Misses Shrum, piano duet. With
most hearty gratitude to the com
mittee, the meeting closed.
