A supply of fishing license
blanks have been received from
County Clerk Warren Brown by
Justice J. H. Jackson, and can
be had from him at his office in
the Pioneer building. D. W.
Barnett has received the blanks
for the hunting licenses. Since
the opening of the fishing season
there has been quite a demand
for the licenses, but no blanks
were available, and a consider
able number of applications have
been filed and receipt issued for

Up According to
t i.n .i
On the English coast, at Land's End,
there stands a curiously formed bowl
der with a profile resembling that of
n human face. It is supposed thnt once
the rocky head was held proudly erect
and could look out over the blue sea,
but during somo period of disturbance
the huge bowlder was thrown forward,
so that now the forehead of the man
rests against a neighboring rock. All
these rugged and massive pieces bor
dering the coast are fine granite. Lo
cally the curious bowlder Is known as
A Better Campaigner.
Two candidates for the same ofilco
came into n certain town one day.
The one called at n house, where a lit
tle girl came to the door. Snld he,
"SIssle, will yon please bring me n
glass of water?" Having brought the
water, he gave her some candy and
asked, "Did the man ahead of me give
you candy?" "Yes, sir." Then ho
gave her a nickel and said. "Did he
give you money?" "Yes, sir; he gave
mo 10 cents." Then be picked her up,
he kissed her and said, "Did he kiss
you?" "Yes, sir, and he kissed mam
ma too!" National Monthly.
The Bird and the Man.
A country stable keeper was driving
a salesman from one town to another
when. In passlug through n wooded
section, the salesman seized the lines
and brought the horse to a halt.
"What Is that noise?" he queried, lis
tening to a peculiar sound coming
from the woods.
"That? Oh, that's a partridge drum
ming," replied the driver.
"Well," mused the salesman, letting
go the lines, "I hope he's had better
luck than I have today." Boston
Sharp and Bright!
Two street urchins were arguing
about the high cost of living or some
thing at Sixth and Sansom streets,
and soon logic was exhausted and they
began to call names.
"You're a bonehead!" one grimy kid
Informed the other.
"G'wan. I'm so sharp mo old man
tried to lick me the other day and cut
his hand. You're the lowbrow of the

Paper Money In Mexico.
In Mexico and other Latin American
countries there is no law against the
reproduction of the paper money of
the country for use as advertising, but
in the United States this is n felony,
and any one so doing would be prose
cuted under the laws of the land for
counterfeiting the nntlonal currency.
in Mexico imitation bills can bo seen
nt all times used for advertising pur
poses, and, strange to say, they da-
celve no one, and the users of them do
not intend any deceit, though It would
seem to bo an easy matter to pass
them on unlettered persons. Can It
be that Mexicans are moro Intelligent
or simply that few of tho illiterate
ever gain possession of paper money?
John Wesley's Wife.
John Wesley married a widow, Mrs.
Vizelle, who grew tired of his restless
ly laborious life and complained. Ho
paid no atteutlon, and from complaint
she went on to jealousy, thence to fury.
He rebuked her sternly: "Do not any
longer contend for mastery, for power,
money or praise. Bo content to bo a
private, insignificant person. Of what
Importance Is your character to man
kind? If you were burled Just now or
had never lived, what loss would It be
to the cause of God?" She left him,
taking with her a largo number of his
private papers, and ho dismissed tho
subject by writing In his Journal: "I
did not forsako her. I did not dismiss
her. I shall not call her back."
NOBILITY OF PURPOSE.
If either man or woman would
realize the full power of personal
beauty it must be by cherishing no
ble thoughts and hopes and pur
poses, by having something to do
and something to live for that is
worthy of humanity and which by
expending the capacities of theaoul
gives expansion and symmetry to
the body which contains it.- Up-ham.

AN INCUBATOR CAVE.
My brother, did you ever run An In
cubator in the house, smoke the white
celling, the snowy curtains and the
counterpane and get henpecked for it?
Well you deserved it and a good
lickiif to boot. Have you yen rued for
an incubator all these years, but been
deprived of hatchin chicks by ttje
bar'l because Marlar had a gropltj'
fear that It would bust and blow up
the whole shebang?
Brother, there Is hope!
Our picture solves tho problem.
Of course a natural cave, dry
innclous. wonld be better: but. not hav
lng one handy, our friend mnde his
own. and It's n dandy. It wos tun
neled back Into the hill eighteen feet
and made ten feet wide.
As much ns possible the natural roof
was preserved, and the structure
was built of thick, squared log1!, con
crete being pushed In over the top and
the roof outside being covered with
concrete and packed earth. It Is slm.

front, the ground Uoor and the inner
end, which is earth.
A ventilator enters at the front, runs
overhead to the rear, and to tills tho
Incubator heaters are attached by
pipes for removal of al! lamp fumes.
There Is very little drip, tho tem
perature is about right, air la good
and Just moist enough. Tho cave
holds ten 150 egg Incubators.
This cave reminds one of tho en
trance to a soft coal mine, nnd If you
take a notion to build such an Incu
bator convenience talk It over with
an old miner he is everywheronnd
