Carl Armstrong, the seven-year-
old son of Mr. and Mrs. Buck
Armstrong, last Saturday became
imbued with a desire to climb tele-
phone poles. He proceeded to put
the desire into execution by climb-
ing the pole standing in front of
Mr. Armstrong's place of business,
and when about twelve feet from
the ground he slipped and fell, and
was caught in the arm pit by
an iron spike in the pole about
eight feet from the ground causing
a painful wound from which the
little fellow is still suffering.
The case of the Territory of
OHahoma against F. T. Schuck
and others for an offense alleged to
have been committed against the
ordinances of the town of Erick
held the boards in justice court
here for a short time last Saturday
afternoon. The defendant was
charged with breaking a lamp
chimney and being otherwise tu-
multuous and disoiderly at the
Texas house a few nights previous.
It was proven that the lamp chim-
ney was broken, but as it was not
shown that it was broken by the
defendant he was discharged.
This is So.
We wish to state in as plain and
vigorous way as words can express It

ly and permanently cure any form of
Itching Skin disease known. One ap-
plication affords relief.
Wonderful Work of a Watch.
In perfect running order, the balance
wheel of a timepiece makes 18.000 Vi-
brations per hour. The number of
'miles a year the movement of a cor-
rectly adjusted balance wheel will
equal is 3.558. To make this run less
than one-tenth of a drop of oil Is con
«atned. In order to keep a watch In
proper condition It Is advisable to
have the timepiece thoroughly over-
loaded seml-annoallv. The life' of •
watch Is lengthened by having It
boose-cleaned" every sis months
TACT MARK OF TRUE KINDNESS.
Proceeds From the Heart, While Pol-
icy Is From the Head.
A high fence should be built be-
tween the words tact and policy for
the benefit of those who cannot see
the bordering line.
"Oh! I have no tact," they say with
a satisfied air. "Tact and policy are
•hings I know nothing about."
/nd yet the two qualities are as dis-
tinct as north and south.
Tact comes from the heart, and
-olicy from the head. Policy is In-
•>rired by selfish interests and Is a
•reacherous quality that one might
well boast the lack of.
Tact springs within from an unwill-
ingness to hurt feelings, and it is the
mar1; of innate kindness that has no
Tact is no enemy to truth. It offers
truth on a salver Instead of throwing
it in the face, that's all.
Was Friend of Capt. Kidd.
Capt. Thomas Paine of Newport,
founder of Trinity church, where fash-
ionable weddings are celebrated In
the twentieth century, was one of the
notorious characters of the seven-
teenth century. He was a friend and
some time a partner of William Kldd.
He retired from the exciting life to a
quiet abode on Conanicut island in
Narragansett bay. where a messen-
ger from Kidd found him when Kldd
lay a prisoner in Boston. To Paine's
credit he sent Kldd seven bars of gold
with which to bribe his Jailors, In
spite of which Kidd swung by the
neck In London.
Testimony From the Heart.
An old Welshman who, in his nine-
ty-eighth year, saw fit to make a pew
will, came to the point briefly and
specifically: "I give to my old faith-
ful servant, Esther Jones, the whole
that I am possessed of, eithar in
personal property, land or otherwise.
She Is a talerabie good woman, but
would be much better If she had aot
so clamorous a tongue. She has. how-
ever. one great vtrtoe. which la a
veil to her foibles—strict hoaeary."
ABSENCE MAKES HEART FONDER
Advice of Worldly Wise Woman to
"If a wife would keep her husband
aer lover, let him miss her now and
then," is the advice of a worldly wise
woman. "Men get tired of their
wiv^es Just from seeing them around
so much. The same face at breakfast
35 times a year; the same face at
dinner year in and year out; neither
realizes what the trouble Is, and the
wife, as often as not, thinks it is her
r'ault, and prods herself into greater
conscientiousness, greater fidelity,
rituff and nonsense! Let her pack her
grip and go off for a holiday. Give
iiimthe Jolt of finding that he must
eat his dinner alone once in a while.
The use-and-wont attitude toward the
wife—the taking her for granted—Jt
is this which, unguessed, unseen, lies
at the bottom of much domestic fric-
tion of the day. In nine cases out of
ten the woman is its victim, but on
fhe other hand, it is generally her
fault to begin with. These self-
effacing, meek, ultra-conscientious
little wives, oh, how much they have
to answer for!"—New York Tribune
Henry. Bergh's Name Honored.
In 1866 the late Henry Bergh found-
ed the American Society for the Pre-
vention of Cruelty to Animals, atfd on
its Incorporation he became its first
president He made himself the butt
of) much ridicule by his persistency
in discevering and bringing to punish-
ment those who offended against its
humane purpose, more especially as
roncerned horses; but when he died,
in 1888. a chain of similar societies
bad been established throughout the
Union and In foreign countries, and
he way held in honor throughout the
world.—New York Sun.
