No Fun For Boys.
In some of the cantons of Swltasr-
land they have special laws made for
boy a Here is a sample of them:
“If a boy throws a stone and hits a
man he may be fined 3 francs.
“If a boy throws a snowball and bits
a woman he may be fined 2 francs.
“If a boy calls a girl a ‘red bead’ he
may be fined from 2 to 4 francs.
“If a boy throws at frogs in a pond
without being ordered to do so by bls
father or teacher be shall be fined a
"If a boy throws a stone and breaks
a window tielonging to some one els*
his father may whip him or be may be
fined 2 francs.
"If a boy makes a face at bls teach
gr or draws pictures of him on bis
slate or speaks ill of him he may be
fined 5 francs and have to beg his par­
“If a boy stones a dog or chases a
cat It is a fine of a franc.
“If two boys fight without the con­
sent of their teacher It Is a fine of 3
"If a boy steals apples or other fruit
It M a fine of 2 francs, and be should be
beaten by his father.”
The American boy who reads the
above will wonder what the Swiss boy j
has to five for. About all be can do
and not be fined is to have the measles
or whooping cough.—Exchange.
Man’s Unwisdom.
The simplest and plainest laws of
health are outraged every hour of the
day by the average man. Did Adam
smoke? Did Eve wear comets? Did
Solomon chew tobacco?
Did Moth
Chew gum? Did the children of Israel
make for a beer garden after r meet ng
the Red sea? Did Rebecca eat gum
drope and Ice cream and call for sods
water? Adam was the first and was
made perfect from bead to heel. How
long would he remain no after eating
a mince pie before going to bod? Sup­
pose he bad slept In a bedroom five by
seven, with the windows down, the
door shut and two dogs under the bed ?
Suppose Eve had laced bereetf up In
a comet, put on tight shoes, sat up all
hours of the night eating her flU of
trash and staled her hatr When yon
come to look fit tho way a man misbe­
haves himself you can only wonder be
ever lived to get there. Verily, the av­
erage man behaves as If he were little
better than a fool. Woodbury (O om .)
"Do you believe that the good die
young?” "I think they do, if aM my
wife telta me about her first husband
la true.”—Pick-Me-Up.
Where crocodiles abound in Africa
native children are taught in cane of

Hourglasses In a London Church.
Nearly everybody is aware that at !
ene time it was the custom in many i
churches to regulate the length of the
sermon by an hourglass, which stood I
on the pulpit Immediately fronting the
preacher. Quite a number of these
curious relics are preserved In various
ecclesiastical edifices throughout the
land, but the British and Foreign Sall
or»' church, situated in what was for­
merly Ratcliff highway, is the only one
possessing four. They are in perfect
preservation and are fixed all together
in a framework of solid brass.—Lon­
don Standard. •
Happy Outlook.
They bad had their fortunes told by
scientific palmistry separately lest
their marriage should be suspected
and were comparing notes.
“There was only one thiDg I didn't |
like,” said Angelina, "and that waa
that—that I was to be married twice."
“What!” Edwin exclaimed.
"It wasn't my fault," pleaded Ange­
lina. “She said it was written in my
"That you were to be married
"But I'm to be married twice too.”
“The Oaks.”
“The Oaks,” which gave the name to
the popular race, has representation in
British drama in the play “The Maid
of the Oaks,” which was written by
General Burgoyne, and after being per­
formed at the author's residence on the
I xiwiih was produced by Garrick at
Drury Lane in 1775. Burgoyne sold
‘“The Oaks" estate to the sport lowing
twelfth Karl of Derby, who Instituted
the Oaks stakes in 1779 and was also
the winner. The “Derby" was 1 net! tut-
ed In the year following. Out of eon-
klderatkm of the fillies taking part in
both races the “Derby,” which used to
be run on the Thursday, was altered
in later times to Wednesday to allow
a day t-etween the two great events.—

Flag« In Battle.
The evolution of the battlefiag was
a gradual process, and evidence of It»
first use in warfare 1« neither definite
nor decisive. Its germ was contained
tn the numerous and varied standards
nnd enRlgns used by the ancient Egyp­
tians, the Assyrians and the Chaldeans,
from wlioao wooden or metallic images
of favorite deitjea the modern battle­
flag has iteen elaborated. Naval flag»

Probably the linen tonic hoisted by
Antlgonus as a signal for hla Illyrian
troops to begin the attack at Helbaata
and the waving of hla red cloak to
start a cavalry charge were the first
demonstrations of the oeefnlnesn of
flaav on the battlefield.
