T he ways of th e g o v ern m e n t are som e­
tim e s curious. F or exam ple, th e re is a
law t h a t forbids im p o rtin g th e plum age
or skins of birds of paradise. T h a t
m eans, of course, t h a t th e skins and
plum age ca n n o t h g a llv be sold or worn
in th e United S ta te s ; yet when custom s
inspectors recently seized five hu n d re d
and tw enty-seven skins t h a t smugglers
were try in g to bring in to th is co untry,
t h e g o vernm e nt sold th em a t auc tio n —
Y o u th ’s C om panion.
Some tim e ago ju d g m e n t was given
aga inst M u ltn o m a h C ounty for damages
su s ta in e d
when an a u to tru c k tell
t h ro u g h a weak county bridge. The
c o u n ty was held to be responsible for
t h e condition of th e bridge. Now a
ju d g m en t for $1,300 has been won
against Douglas C ounty for personal in ­
jury sustained by a passenger jolted off
a stage on a bad road. The decision
has been appealed to th e S tate Suprem e
C o u rt. If su stained, this verdict will
get a costly precedent.—Oregon Voter.
CONFIDING IN THE TELEPHONE.
A new use for th e trouble d e p a rtm e n t
of a telephone office has been discovered,
l'he S o uthw estern Telephone News r e ­
ports it in these w o r d s : The family
had not had th e ir telephone very long,
and everyone took a deep and abiding
in tere st in it. On th e o utside of th e
directory th ev had noted she words,
“ Trouble, cail No. 4217.”
I t h ad been a hard m orning, and
e v e ry th in g had gone wrong. Finally
th e lady of th e house, in desperation,
t u rn e d to h er tru s ty telephone and called
4217.
“ This is th e trouble d e p a r t m e n t ,” a n ­
swered th e operator sweetly.
“ Is this w here von rep o rt your t r o u ­
b le s !” asked th e lady.
“ Fes, m a ’a m . ”
“ W ell, I only w ant to re p o rt t h a t o u r
c a t got drow ned in th e cistern th is
m o rn in g ; th e baby is c u ttin g a new
tooth ; th e cook left w ith o u t w a rn in g ;
we are out of sugar and s ta r c h ; th e
stovepipe fell d o w n ; th e m ilk m an left
only a p in t instead of a q u a r t today;
th e bread w on’t r a i s e ; m y oldest child
is com ing down with th e m easles; the
plu m b in g in th e cellar leaks; we have
only enough coal to last th ro n g h to­
m orrow ; th e p a in t gave out when I got
only half over th e d in in g room floor;
th e m ainspring of th e clock is bro k e n ;
m y th ree sisters-in-law are coming to­
morrow to visit: th e m an has not called
for th e garbage for two weeks; our dog
has th e m ange; t h e looking-glass fell off
th e wall a while ago and broke to p ieces;
and I th in k m y husb an d is taking con-
fideimble notice of a widow lady t h a t
lives next door. T h a t 's all todav, but
if a n y th in g h appens late r I'll call you
u p and tell you about i t . ”

It costs as much to paint with inferior
paint as it does with quality stuff and
you save but little on the original cost
and lose heavily on the lasting quality.
