The Fish That Get Away.
I've fished in the old Ohio
When a freckled, barefoot boy.
Pulled "cats" from the bokl
With a hickory pole
And carried them hornd with joy.
But among the cats, both large
That I hooked in my bygone day
The cat that I wanted most of all
Was the one that got away.
I've tossed the lively shiner
With a rod of snpple steel
Where lie the bass
"By the Boating grass
And brought them in with the
But of all the bass I ever caught
None was so large and fine, .
None sent the Mood through my
veins so hot,
As the bass that broke my line.
I've waded the clear, cold northern
And have cast for speckled trout,
Have found the fly
That took their eye
And lured the beauties out,
But of all the trout that ever rise
From many a teeming brook
None loom so large in memory's
As the ones that slip the hook.
So runs the world. Our wisest
Are the words we fail to speak;
The sweetest kiss
Is the one we miss;
The sweetest grapes we seek
Hang just too high, and we long
And sigh as we sadly say
The best of the fish that come to
Are the fish that get away.
Deaf-mutes are always ready to
take a baud in arguments.
Rejected suitors are the victims
of misapplied devotion.
It's a wise man who patches up
the quatrell instead of his face.
Bewar: of the financial pointer;
it usually points the wrong way.
As a weather forecaster there is
nothing superior to a healthy corn.
Charity is a garment that serves
to cover up much moral scrawni
There's something radically
wrong with the man who enjoys
visiting a dentist."
Isn't it a pitv that the average
reformer neglects to begin his work
at home ?
Cigarrettes, if properly classified
would come under the head of fouls
of the air.
Any small boy can make a home
run every time he knocks his ball
through a pane of glass.
Nothing arouses a woman's
wrath so much as a man who ap
pears to be well satisfied with him
If the automobile is known by
its horse power, the airship should
bo known bv its bird power.
It doesn't necessarily follow that
a man is rich because he happens
to have more money than brains.
One man may be able to break
a horse, but later the horse does a
stunt on a race track and breaks a
dozen men.— Chicago News.
A Jilted Man's Triumph.
Mrs. Wilkins Freeman, the nove
list, nodded toward an angular
woman of forbidding aspect at tea.
"Yon would hardly believe,"
she said, "that she was once a very
beautiful girl. And she was as
vain and.selfish as she was beauti
ful.. She jilted three desirable
young men in two years.
"She had, I suppose, a good
time while her beauty lasted. Now
her beauty is gone,. and she is'
alone in the world—a hard, cruel
old waartn, with a bitter tongue.
"And if she once triumphed over
men, men now if they are vindic
tive and cruel enough, may triumph
"Oue of the men she jilted was
sufficiently cruel and vindictive for
sttch a triumph. She met him a
few years ago and said:
" 'Let me see; was it you or
1 your brother who proposed to me
whCn I was a girl?"
" 'I don't know, madam.' the
man answered. 'Probably it wa?
j my father,'"—Pbiladel. hu Record
WILLIAMSTON, N. C-, F.IDAY, SEPTEMBER 8. 1905.
Future Han May Be All Blind.
Mr. Burt Green Wilder, the
well-known neurologist of Cornell
Universitv, has a collection of hu
man brains in the neighborhood of
a thousand' in number, and he is
constantly adding to it. Not a few
prominent men, among them
"Mark Twain," have willed their
brains to Dr. Wilder. Naturally
the neurologist, with his large col
liction now in baud, has an excep
tional opportunity to study the
A short time ago, while in con
versation with a group of student
ft lends, he made the most startling
prophecy for the future of man.
"It is no play of the imagination,"
said he, "to say that some time in
the future the body of man will
not exist—he will be just brain.
We are fast approaching that state
now. The eternal law of nature,
which says that all things that are
not used shall not exist, is at work
with man. Man is not using his
body, therefore the body must
cease to be. Evolution works
slowly but truly. You know Em
erson said we have coaches and
street cars, but we have forgotten
how to walk. It is true.
PRAT or ANCIHNT ATHLRTR.
"Just to give you an idea how
fast our bodies are becomiug dwarf
ed and weakened I might mention
the fact that less than 3,000 years
ago—an extremely short time in
the course of evolution—all people
were athletes, and a man at the
Olympic games in Greece made a
broad jump of sixty feet. Some
thing like twenty-five feet is the
limit uow. In these days an ath
lete is such a wonder that we pa>
money to see him perform little
feats that a 6-year-old child could
do in former times.
"Conditions have changed won
derfully in this short space of 3,000
years. Even at this verv moment
evolution seems to be jumping and
hastening forward at a pace un
known to the past. This is espe
cialiy true with the brain. Dr
Tohn Carty, of Chicago, who ha?
made measurements of the heads
of students for the last dozen years
says that the head of the averagt
American student has grown an
inch in circumference in that space
of time. Ido not doubt the truth
of the statement.
"When, however, we considei
what the brain must yet come to
and how hard It is now to learn
and to perceive things we know tin
brain has just begun to develop
It is eveu difficult to remember
what we have once been told. Wt
have to be drilled and drilled be
fore we learn a thing. In fact, tlu
brain is quite stupid when we con
sider its limitations. This will 1101
be true when the brain is further
RVOLUTION WII.L SHOW A WAV.
"You probably wonder, when
we have become a mere lump oi
brain without a body, how we cai.
transport ourselves from place to
place, how we can talk without a
a mouth, how the brain will gei
nourishment for itself, and how
the race will reproduce itself. Il
is not so difficult to understand
how all this will be dons. Evolu
tion and science will take care of it
all. Yon know that eveu now a
person often knows what another
is thinking without a word having
been uttered. Wave thoughts
seem to pass through the air.
"So, by the mere thinking, wave
currents of thought will be sent out
and all other brains may receive
them, even as wireless telegraph
instruments receive their wave vi
brations. A 8 for transportation,
this will be easy when we consider
that we now have instruments
which can detect the heat of a can
dle a mile away. We shall have
more delicate machines which will
catch the power of the wave
thoughts and set the machine in
motion. Likewise, chemically pre
digested food will be supplied to
the brain by the use of a machine
run by the force of thought. The
science of chemistry will easily
take care of the of
the race of braius."—Chicago
