The boiled eggs which adher

Eggs packed in bran for a long

Thin shells are caused by a

Oklahoma's First Recognition.
"The State of Oklahoma" re-
ceived its first official recogni-
tion recently. Technically, it will
not be a state for some time yet,
but the comptroller of the cur-
rency has allowed it to appear
as such in the treasury depart-
ment records. In giving out a
statement on the condition of the

used to such sights. But the
tragedy of it was the perfection
of her work. The buttonholes

acquiring such skill." I have

The Wreck on flic Frisco.
In the wreck of the Frisco
East-bound local freight which
occured on the iron bridge over
Mingo Creek at Rice Station,
eight cars were broken into kind-
ling wood, the iron work of the
bridge was displaced and badly
damaged and the trestle work
entirely demolished. Three of the
cars were loaded with wheat,
thr^e with oats, one oil tank car
and one empty box car. None
of the train crew was injured,
but it is believed that a tramp
is buried under the wreckage,
as a pair of old shoes in a new
shoe box which the man was seen
carrying when he boarded the
train, were found inside the
empty box car. The railroad
men think the tramp tried to es-
cape injury by jumping out the
open sido door and was crushed
under the falling car in such
Position as to be entirely hidden,
until this part of the wreckage
can be removed. The fact that
the unfortunate man had enough
pride to purchase a new pair of
shoes while the old ones held
togather would seem to leave a
doubt as to his being a regular
tramp, and the train men believe
that he was probably a laborer
going from place to place
search of an honest living.

break the pot in which the plant
grows. Blades of grass will force the
curbstones between which they may
spring up out of tueir place and in a
single night a crop of small mush-
rooms have lifted a large stone. In-
deed. plants have been known to break
the hardest rocks. The Island of Alda- 1
bra, to the northwest of Madagascar, i
is becoming smaller and smaller '
through the action of the mangroves '
that grow along the foot of the cliffs. ,
They eat their way Into the rock in all
directions, and into the gaps thus }
formed the waves force their way. In :
time they will probably reduce the
island to pieces.

He is continually to be found sneak-

"Industrial" insurance is very pop-
ular in Great Britain. The number of
policies outstanding is immense, name-
ly, 24,608,502, insuring $1,210,000,000,
at an annual premium expense of $55,-
, 000^00. Expenses fell from 44.5 to
43.5 per cent, of premiums. All, or
practically all, these policies are Brit-
ish. After allowing for overlapping,
more than half the working classes in ,
Great Britain, men, women and chil-
dren, are Insured with the Industrial
Park Around Grant's Tomb.
IniUal steps have been taken to
create a public park around Grant's
, tomb, Riverside, N. Y. It is proposed
; to take in several blocks at a cost of
between $2,000,000 and $3,000,000.
