.most pleasant ride for a time on the
sroads south of city limits. A cool
ibreeze was blowing, the auto seemed
0 be the only one traveling in those
arts. It was dark and the optimist
'had plenty of opportunity to squeeze
the hand of his girl and to bestow a

Toad was straight. Sometimes there
"would be a sharp curve, however, and
EVthen "the optimist would have to devote
4ds whole attention to the machine.
On one occasion the optimist divided
Ids attention, with dire results. His
subconsciousness told him that there

machine gracefully around the curve
rwhen he noticed he had passed a. fence
ipost on either side where a farm gate
iWas ajar. Before he could put on
the emergency brake there was a
crash, and then a most alarming cho
rus of squeals. The auto had run
squarely into a pigpen, and the pork

the commotion was at its height an

MANY BIRDS UNABLE TO FLY
Hving No Necessity to Use Wings

bers Ceased to Develop.
Of the 70 kinds of birds existing in
(New Zealand, 30 are found nowhere
else, and of this number by far the
parger portion is flightless; this, no
jdoubt, owing to the fact that for ages,
jever since the sea swallowed up a con
tinent, leaving only the islands com
prising the present Dominion of New

tive carnivora in the land, except those
small ones imported recently to aid in

' That actors cannot labor without at

day, when a man went amidst of a
hundred or more idle thespians who

the Rialto, and said aloud : "I want to
hire about 20 men on contract. If any
of you men want work, follow me.
Eighty-seven disengaged thespians
followed the mysterious stranger to
Shis sumptuous suite of offices on For
ty-second street, according to the New
Tork correspondent of the Pittsburgh
pDispatch. There the mysterious
stranger faced the multitude and
said: "Three and a half a day for

of a show is this?" several actors de

S Beware Deadly Nightshade Berries.
The berries of the deadly nightshade
ICatrona belladonna), now ripe, are
?such a tempting fruit for children that
hthey and their parents ought to know
ithe plant and the terrible danger of
-eating its berries. These are the
ource from which the poisons atro
pine and belladonna are made.
The deadly nightshade grows from
three to five feet high on strong,
branched, purple-colored stems. Its
pointed, oyal leaves vary In size and
stand in pairs on short toot stalks.
!The flowers are purple, pendent and
bell-shaped. These appear , in June
land July, and give place to shining

jfamlly as the tomato and potato.

find that he is a light eaier. Be
as careful as you v ill, however,
you will occasionally eat more
than you should and wili feel the

correct the disorder These
tables do not contain pepsin,
but strengthen the stomach and
enable it to perform its functions
naturally. They also cp use a

LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT
Possible Explanation of Why Some
Business Enterprises Fall, While
"It is an axiom that it is the little
things that count, and I never had a
better illustration of such logic than
an incident in a cigar store the other
day," said an observing man.
"I wanted to buy a box of cigars,
but it was a busy time of day. Tna
store was crowded and there weren't
enough clerks to handle the rush. Cus
tomers were impatient and complain
ing, but .that did not help matters a bit
for the clerks were hustling their best
"When my turn came I asked for a
box of cigars of a certain brand. The
clerk got them and started to wrap
them up. As I did not care to buy
Koods without looking them over, I
asked him to open the box. He did,
but lost the small brass tack that held
down the coyer, so when he closed the
box he had to look for another tack.
"Finally he took a tack out of an
other full box of cigars, but bent it so
that it could not be used. Then he
looked for an empty box with a tatfi
left in it, but there weren't any. Oth.
customers impatiently watched, grun
Ming all the time. At last the cleik
had to open another box of cigars and
take the tack from the box, and with
it he nailed my box.
"Now, why didn't that store have
exta tacks on hand?"
