. lone and Olex crossea bats on the
lone diamond last Sunday. The first
three innings were very even, no
one scoring, but after that the Olex
boys kept gainng a little, the soore
being 11 to 1 in Olex favor at the end
of the game. We think Olex has a
little the best team, but had Ione'a
pitcher not heon suffering with a very
bum hand we think that the game
would have bean very close. The
hot 8 will prohably play in the near
future again and I think it will not
be quite so one sided next time.

Vrtd by Writers and Ifluminators In
the Early Ages.
Movable characters were known to
flie niifleiils. They were used Id teach
ing children, to rend. The ancients
hud also stencil letters, which they
used to secure a renuliir style of pen
manship. They even made use of
plules, thus open cut, containing un
entire page. IT was placed on the
papyrus to guide the pens of children,
"an excellent uieans," salib Qulntll
lan, "to learn them not to exceed the
'desired proportions." The Emperor
Mistiiilau (A. I). SISi could neit her read
oor write, an unexampled thing In
)ne ot such high rank. When it was
jecessary for him to sign his name
he bad a sheet of gold through which
were cut the letters of bis name.
"Then," said Procoplus, "placing this
tablet on the paper, one conducted the
hand of the prince, holding the stylus
dipped in purple on the type of the
different letters, and took away the
writing furnished with his signature."
The same thing is reported of. King
Theodorie and of Charlemagne.
In the middle ages the Illuminators
and decorators made much of such tab
lets for tracing involved initial letters
and even In a way composed enure
n-nrksi. such as conies of the plain
songs, etc. A chartered abbey near
Mnvence Dossessed some sixty or tne
alniinhets cut in leaves of latonu, a
copper alloy. Later these patterns
were replaced by stamps wnose lm
nrint Is nroved by the evidences on
the reverse of the page as early as
the thirteenth century. Jn lzss tne
monks of Fribourir published a treatise
relating to money In this way, and It
seems, according to a passage in Pliny'
nnil another in Petronius, that these
stencils were used to publish figures
and designs as well.-Charles Vt . Hull

SUPREME COURT GOWNS.
They Are Made of the Finest Silk and
Are Quite Costly.
It Is said that the cut. and style of
the gowns worn by the justices of the
supreme court of the United States are
so peculiar that it is not always possi
ble to have one correctly made.
The wife of a former justice used to
enjoy telling of her trying experiences
when she wished to have made in rar-
is the gown her husband was to use.
The gowns worn there by scientists,
scholars and students differ altogether
from those our justices wear.
In London any clerical tailor would
have understood the kind of gown de
sired, but not so in Taris. Wherefore,
after many failures, the justice's wife
gave Instructions to tne iusuiunuuie
modiste who made her gowns, lhra
modiste was entirely successful lu
toruing out a gown for the Justice.
The justice's gowns, which are al
ways of the best quality of silk, cost
upward of $100. When the supreme
court was first organized the justices
wore quite gaudy gowns.
A portrait in oil of the first chief jus
tice. John Jay. now hangs in the rob
ing room opposite the supreme court
chamber, and in this portrait tne cnier
justice is represented as wearing a
black gown with a broad bright red
border around the neck and down the
front It is edged with gray, and the
sleeves show n red border at the top
and bottom, also edged with gray.
A Curious Windstorm.
A peculiar freak of weather is tne
storm called the "williwau." This
form of storm is confined to that far
off Island Tierra del Fuego. The coast
(s indented with deep fiords crowned
with high mountains. Down from
their gorges drops the williwau. A
low, hoarse muttering is heard in the
distance. Suddenly, without the least
preliminary puff, a tearful blast of
wind drops upon the sea. The water
is not raised into waves, but driven
into fine dust. Fortunately the shock
lasts but ten or twelve seconds, and
cnlm follows at once, for no vessel
could stand such a wind for even half
a minute. During the coming and go
ing of a williwau the barometer may
tie watched to drop a tenth of an inch
or more and rise again at once.
She Wet a Skeptic.
In pioneer days a settler near the
present town of Albany. Mo., bought
for his wife the first cook stove ever
seen in that part of the state. It was
an object of great curiosity, and the
woman's next door neighbor, who
lived ten miles away, came to se how
It woufd work. Without comment she
saw the dinner cooked. She ate the
meal with Judgment held In reserve
and then remarked, with a shake of
"Well. Sarah, it cooks nil right, and
the victuals taste good, but I don't be
lleve It will ever be a success."
To make mrstakes Is human. Every
body makes mistakes, the best of us
included. To acknow ledge mistakes Is
commendable. It Is evidence that one
Is learning by experience, and It shows
that he has the courage to acknowledge
a blunder. Courage Is a rare quality
lu these days. Ieslie's.
"Yes. Aunt Mary went out without
her rubbers, and now she Is In benv
eu." "My. my! What dreadful things
result from a little carelessness!' Ex
change. The Wrong Man.
Just a minute, old chap. You're
Just the ruan I want to see."
"No. Pro not. I can't spare a cent."
