Sanders of the classical language de partment of the University of Michi gan. Doctor Sanders has passed two years working over the bit of browned papyrus, the most cherished item of the large papyrus collection of the University of Michigan. It is written in the Greek of the common people, says Doctor Sanders, thus distinguishing it from the “de luxe city editions” of the complete Bi bles of Antioch, Alexandria and Ces serea, in which the fine penmanship of the clerk or copyist was the ob served characteristic. It has at the end of each phrase a little mark above the line. This Doctor Sanders « on strues to have been for the direction of the readers in the church to show the phrasing. It is the only punetu ationjobserved. The date of writing of the frag ment is placed in. the Third century or the century preceding that in which the city editions were copied. The text is a part of Matthew, telling of the last supper and the betrayal of Jesus Christ. It came into the pos session of the university two years ago through the activities of its Near- East research organization DR. E. C. TANDY Dr. Elizabeth C. Tandy has been ap pointed director of the statistical division of the children’s bureau. Unit ed States Department of Labor. Doc tor Tandy is a native of Indiana and holds degrees from the University of Chicago, Columbia university and Johns Hopkins, She also studied medi cine at Cornell and the University of Wisconsin. At one time she was field representative for the American Red Cross. Old Southern Stamps Bring Small Fortune New York. —Rare old stamps of the South are In much deniaud in New York.

Calls European Pagans Worse Than the African London —Missionaries to combat “the paganism of Europe” are as urgently needed as for converting the heathen, declared G. F. Byron, general • treasurer of the Wesleyan Missionary society, at a church conference in York. » “The paganism of Western Europe is worse than anything in Africa, an.d the anti-Christian feeling in Eastern Europe is the worst in the world,” he asserted.

COLLAR DISCLOSES ' MAN’ S DOUBLE LIFE Wife No. 1 Sees Neckwear in No. 2’s Window. Omaha, Neb. —Henry A. Barnts of Omaha maintained a wife and home in Council Bluffs and another one in Omaha and got away with it until one day recently v/lien wife No. 1 lmppeirbd to see one of her husband’9 collars swinging in an apartment house window. Now he’s in jail. “That’s Henry’s collar,” Mrs. Barnts •No. 1 said to her friend as she pointed to the window on the third floor. “Nonsense,” said the friend. “It is too,” answered No. 1. “I know Henry’s collars. He likes col ored and checked collars and he bought that one last week. I’m going to see what it means.” And she did. She found the col lar belonged to Mr. Barnts all right. But she found another woman who not only claimed the collar but claimed Mr. Barnts as well. Mrs. Barnts No. 2 had washed the collar and put it in the window to dry. Barnt’s Council Bluffs home is at No. 621 First avenue. His wife there is Mrs. Mary Barnts. Ilis Omaha home is in Apartment 47, No. 816 South Twenty-second street. His Omaha wife, No. 2, Is Mrs. Emily Barnts. “Extra Run” His Plan. Barnts is a railroad engineer, and it was because of his “runs” that he was able to keep up two establish ments. “Have to take out an extra tonight,” he would tell one of the wives. But instead of taking out an “extra,” Barnts would go over to the other home for the night. Six years ago Barnts married wife No. 1 and took her to live in Council Bluffs. Nearly a year ago he mar ried No. 2, after several months of courtship, and established their home in Apartment 47, No. 816 South Twen ty-second street. Both women did their shopping ln Omaha, but each of them now recalls her husband never would go shopping with her. “He was a perfect husband and in our six years of married life never said a cross word to me,” says No. L “He was the best husband that ever lived and I’m going to • keep him,** says No. 2. Investigations show that a year ago when Barnts married No. 2 and went on a two-weeks wedding trip, he told No. 1 he was taking out an extra train all the way to the coast and would be gone two weeks. When he got back from the “extra,” he told No. 1 he had been given two weeks off because of the long “extra” and then told No. 2 he had to take out an “extra” to pay for the time he was on the wedding trip. Collar Proves Undoing. But the colored collar proved his undoing. Barnts had a penchant for flaming neckwear —ties as well as collars. Two weeks ago he bought a new coilai of peculiar design. He was living with No. 1 In Council Bluffs at the time. When the collar became soiled, No. 1 washed it for him. Some days later when Barnts started on a “run.” he took the new collar along When he completed his “run,” he went to his Omaha home. And the collar was soiled again. This time No. 2 washed that collar. The day was warm and she hung it in the window to dry. Then along came No. 1. saw the collar, recognized it. investigated, and had Barnts ar rested on a charge of bigamy. No 2 has applied to have her mar riage with Barnts annulled. She wants No. 1 to secure a divorce and then she Barnts can marry. That is No 2's plan. But No. 1 has a different plan. “I’m going to send him to tli£ penitentiary for the limit,” she says. “And I'm not going to get a divorce from him and lie can't get one from me. He was a perfect husband, but I’m not going to stand for this.” “If I just hadn’t bought that col lar,” says Barnts, from his cell in the county jail. Shark Pulls Body From Rescuer’s Grasp in Surf Seaside Heights, N. J. —The. de capitated and limbless body' of Charles A. Burke, aged eighteen of Trenton, washed up on the beach, strengthened the belief that he was s.nqtched from the arms of a rescuer • ay sharks.,. An unidentified bather who went to the youth's rescue explained his failure to bring him in by saying the boy was pulled froifi his grasp by a large fish. Later in the day persons on the beach saw three sharks. Coroner David O. Parker of Ocean county said the body had been at-, tacked by sharks. Gets Card Mailed in 1909 Springfield, Mass. A postcard mailed by a friend in Eilenburg Cen ter, N. Y., on August 9, 1909, has just been received by Mrs. Clara Coopee ; Marion, of Easthainpton.
