PETTED CAT; NOW SEE THEM
High School Girls Have Distressing
Face Rash After Fondling
Haddonfield, N. J.—As nice and gen-
tle and creature loving as are the girl
members of the high school hockey
team of this town, the next time a cat
appears upon their practice field they
will probably take the business ends
of their hockey clubs to it. Because—
Recently a big gray feline, rather
nice looking and of modest demeanor,
appeared on the school's athletic
grounds in the midst of a lively scrim-
mage. The grils stopped their game
and Miss Helen Irons, captain of the
team, picked up the c^t, which she
called "Nice, Tom," and fondled it
against her cheek.
Another girl took it away from her
and did the same thing, and then an-
other at(d another. Among the rest
were the Misses Adele Zimmerman,
Elizabeth Bryson, Jessie and Florence
Griggs, Katherine Malan and Esther
Later a distressing and disfiguring
rash appeared upon the cheeks of
each of the girls, and Dr. William B
Jennings had to be called to attend

FORGET STATUE AT SARATOGA
Monument Erected Years Ago on Fa-
mous Revolutionary Battle Ground
Overlooked for Years.
New York.—Years ago, at the time
when the revolutionary centennial fer-
vor had taken a strong hold upon the
country, a monument was erected on
the Saratoga battlefield. No sooner
was it completed than it was practical-
ly forgotten. Recently came the grati-
fying revival of interest in historic
objects, stimulated by patriotic socie-
ties. Also, there came the trolley and
the automobile, both of which served
to make the Saratoga battle monu-
ment and the historic ground surround-
ing it more accessible. People were
shocked to find the monument in a sad
state of repair. It had become not
merely a monument commemorative
of a great battle—the only one fought
on the soil of the United States that
Creasy deemed worthy of a place in
his liet of the world's decisive battles
—but a monument of public indiffer-
ence and neglect. This monument has
now been repaired and to some extent
remodeled. It has even been dedi-
cated, a step which the original build-
ers evidently forgot all about.
The monument is admitted to be the
finest of its kind in the world. It is
a tall hollow shaft, at the base of
which are four niches. Three of them
contain statues of Gates, Morgan and
Schuyler, three of the four generals
who fought in the battle. The fourth
niche, empty as England's rewards,
void ae his own life, speaks more elo-
quently than words, more strongly
than condemnation, more pitifully
than tears, of a mighty career blasted
"Mrs. Brown has the kleptomania."
"Indeed; what is She taking for it?"
"Anything that looks good to her."

life hurled into the abyss. This is
America's way of honoring Arnold in
of the wealth that helps to build up
the cities, and it should not be forgot-
ten that the cities themselves have as
citizens, young men who have come
fron, other parts, and brought witb
them the experience that lias taught
them to avoid the mistakes of eastern
and southern cities. They also are
imbued with the western spirit of en-
terprise, energy and push, and. so
Western Canada has its cities. At a
banquet recently given in Chicago, a
number of prominent citizens of Win-
nipeg were guests. Among the speak-
| ers was Mayor Deacon of Winnipeg,

of that city, which in thirty years has
risen from a population of 2,000 to one
j of 200,000, he spoke of il/as being the

with only ten per cent, of our arable

Do you not see the portent of a great,
vigorous, populous nation living under
those sunny skies north of the 49th
parallel? And if with our present de-
velopment we are able to do as we
are doing now, to purchase a million
dollars' worth of goods from you every
day of the year, what will our trade
be worth when we have fully develop-
ed the country?
"Now, who shall assist us to devel-
op this great empire that is there?
Shall it be the alien races of southern
Europe or shall it be men of our own

fiscal years no less than 358,000 Amer-
ican farmers have come into Western
Canada, bringing with them goods and
cash to the value of $350,000,000. And
I want to say here that no man who
sets foot on our shores is more en-

NEW BED FOR RIVER RHONE
New Concrete Channel Built Over a
Distance of One Mile by
Geneva.—Quietly and without any
ceremony a splendid engineering feat
has just been brought to a conclu-
sion at Brigue, where Swiss engineers
have diverted the bed of the Rhone
over a distance of about a mile. The
waters of the Rhone were turned from
the old bed into the new channel of
stone and concrete. The ancient bed
will be filled with the debris from the
Becond Simplon tunnel, which is now
being completed, and on the new site
several more permanent ways will he
constructed for goods traffic.
Since the opening of the Lotsch-
berg tunnel, and with the traffic
through the principal Simplon tunnel
constantly increasing, it has been
found that the Btation at Brigue is too
small to cope with the international

IS EPILEPSY CONQUERED?
A gentleman in a club in Grand
Rapids, Mich., formed the hopeless
and harmless habit of taking too much
to drink—alcoholieally speaking be-
fore he went home every evening,
says the Popular Magazine.
"How does he know what time to
go home?" asked a stranger in the
club one night.
"It's this way," exclaimed a mem-
ber. "He goes to the head of that
long flight of stairs leading to the
street. If he falls down them, he
knows it's time to go home."
Evolution of Billiards.
The development of the billiard ta-
ble has been interesting. In those
far back days when billiards seem first
to have become an indoor game, a bil-
liard table was about the size of a
big room. The average table was 30
feet long and 18 feet wide. The size
was gradually and irregularly de-
| creased, until the present standard
carom table was introduced at a bil
I liard tournament held in Samson hall,
I Philadelphia, in 1864.
