Another State House Disagreement.
With the Williams-Franklin contro-
versy, which has been the center of
interest in official circles for several
weeks, at least at a temporary stand-'
still, another, fully developed breach
between two other stafp came
above the sufface. This time State
Auditor E. B. Howard and President
Frank M. Gault of the board of agri-
culture are the participants. Refusal
of the auditor to approve claims of em-
ployes of the board of agriculture for
horse hire while engaged in tick eradi-
cation work, as approved by the aggie
board persident, is the cause.
It has been the custom of the em-
ployes of (he board to hire saddle
horses at $35 a monfh and present
claims accordingly each month. Au-
ditor Howard claims this is the wrong
method of handling *he claims. He
says the horses should be hired by the
day and not for a lump sum by the
month, and he refuses to approve the
claims until they are made out ar-
cording to his ideas, which he declared
are according to the law.
President Gault declares that if How-
ard is sustained in his "arbitrary" rul-
ing it will increase the cost of horse
hire about $600 a month, and rather
than "saddle this unnecessary and use-
less expanse upon the taxpayers" he
threatens to forthwith abandon tick
eradication work, and let the farmers
who will be injured by such action,
"have it out with Mr. Howard."
The question has been under discus-
sion for sometime between the two of-
ficials, "and already there has been too
mut.i damned foolishness connected
with these transactions." says Presi-
dent Gault, in a letter to Mr. Howard.
Several days* aco Mr. Gault referred
the question to the attorney general,
and according to his construction of
any opinion received fromthe attorney
general. "I am right and Howard is
wrong." Notwithstanding this opinion
Mr. Howard still insists that the
claims, as approved by President Gault,
are not according to law. and that he
will continue to disapprove them until
they are made to conform with the
statute requirements. In so doing Mr.
Gault says Mr. Howard is "refusing to
recognize the opinion of the attorney

PEARL HAS FAMOUS HISTORY
Among Other Things, It Is the Oldest
Object Used for Adornment
of the Person.
The pearl .s the only gem needing
not the hand of man to bring to per-
fection. and history affords rmple
evidence of the intense fascination it
has exercised upon the people of every
age. The pearl is the oldest object of
Indian mythology often speaks of
the pearl, attributing its discovery to
the god Vishnu, who is said to have
caused it to be drawn from the ocean
for his daughter Pandaia. The rec-
ords of the Babylonians, Egyptians,
Persians and Romans also contain
many references to the gem. The wife
of Emperor Caligula, for an ordinary
betrothal feast, is said to have
decked herself with pearls to the
value of $1,000,000; and Julius Caesar
presented Servilla. the mother of Bru-
tus. with a specimen valued at $250,-
Philip II of Spain paid $200,000 for
a single pearl known as "Peregrlna."
It was found in Panama, was pear-
shaped and weighed 134 carat* An-
other king of Spain—Philip IV—pur-
chased a pearl of Indian origin weigh-
ing 126 carats.
The largest pearl known is that
which was once the property of Henry
Philip Hope. Cylindrical in form, it is
two inches long, four and a half
inches In circumference at one end
and three and a half inches at the
other. It weighs* 1,800 grains and is
valued at $300,000.
It is known that the beauty of the
natural pearl sometimes proves eva-
nescent. To retain its shimmering
splendor it needs air and light. Acids
can affect pearls, and emanations
from the human skin can, it is con-
tended. destroy the precious luster,
which, once gone, cannot be recov-
ered. Sometimes, too, owing to their
comparative softness, pearls become
scratched and thus a source of anxiety
to their owners.

Among trie passengers ou a train on
a one-track road in the middle West
was a talkative jewelry drummer.
Presently the train stopped to take
on water, and the conductor neglect-
ed to send back a flagman. An ex-
press came along and, before It could
be stopped, bumped the rear end of
the first train.
The drummer was lifted from his
seat and pitched head first into the
seat ahead. His silk hat was jammed
clear down over his ears. ,
He picked himself up and settled
back in his seat. No bones had been
broken. He drew a long breath,
