trill give his attention to the
wants of the democracy in Can-
adian county. lion. Jos. G,
Lowe, the gentleman chosen, is a
man of that stamp. His demo-

The oddest industry in the metrop-
olia ia that of a tuccoth carpenter,
who finds employment one week of the
jear in the Ghetto among the ortho*
ilox Jews, »av\* the New York Evening
lkuat. Hia work ia done in the fort*
night which precede* the feaat of
tabernacles and contist* in building
odd little booths known as succoth* its
the back yard* of the tenement
house*. The feast of the tabernacle*
is supposed to commemorate the time
during which the children of Israel
wandered in the wilderness, and prob*
ably also their sojourn in tha land
of Egypt. During this period they
lived more or less in the open, which
fact U symbolized by the booth hav-
ing no roof or else a covering of ever-
greens and bulrushes. According ta
another school the booths represent
the time when the Israelites cant© ia
such numbers that they were unable
to get into the temple and so built
temporary shelters around the sacred
The etiocoth ahottld be boxlike in
shape, not less than six feet In height,
six feet long and four feet wide. It
should be made of the cheapest and
flimsiest building material to indicate
what ia represents. Some of the build-
ers take a pride In making the struc-
tures as ramshackle ns possible. Oth-
ers use the poorer materials, but saw
and fit them with so much skill that
the finished succoth is neat and at-
tractive. There Is hut little commer-
cial element in the industry. The em-
ployer supplies the wood or the build-
er sells it to him at cost, while for the
work of setting It up his price is near-
ly always 30 cents. Charitable He-
brews will often employ two or three
builders and pay each the same as the
Here during the festival week the
family takes its meals, and assembles
every day for prayer. It is not at all
unpleasant in fair w eather, but w hen,
as often happens, it rains, the situa-
tion is decidedly uncomfortable. 4)n
a rainy day symbolism vanishes, as
rain Is practically unknown in tha
stony desert where the Israelites wan-
dered ages ago.
Still more suggestive is the way tn
which the prayers are said. Instead of
kneeling or of clasping the hands, the
one who prays holds n fruit, usually
a pomegranate, in one hand and a
bulrush or water-reed in the other.
At the end of the prayer each of thexe
’* shaken twice and then handed over
io the next member of the family.
The water reeds are supposed to com-
memorate the finding of Moses 1n the
bulrushes, and the fruit the promise
*>f the Lord to give them a land flowing
with milk and honey.

As a rule, moat English queens have
been solemnly crow ned, whether they
reigned in their own right or as wives
of royal husbands. To this rule, how-
ever, there are exceptions, says a
writer for the Philadelphia Times.
The first w as Margaret of France, the
young, plain, amiable second wife of
Edward I. He had spent to much
money in conquering Wales and in try-
ing to conquer Scotland that he could
not afford the expense of a coronation
for his girl bride, and she had to do
without the splendors of the pngennt.
King Henry VIII. took care that An-
nie Roleyn should be crowned with
extreme magnificence. He desired to
show the world how much he loved her.
and how very much he defied the bishop
of Rome. The four wives who succeed-
ed her were never crow ned at all. For
one thing, money rnn short, and. for
another, there may have lurked, even
tn his masterful mind, a sense of the
"fitness of things” which may have
caused him to shrink from publicly
crowning so many ladies in Filch very
rapid succession. At any rate, the be-
loved Jane Seymour, the despised
Anne of Cleves. the girlish Catharine
Howard and the wary Catharine Parr
were never consecrated in public as
queen consorts of England.
Henrietta Maria, wife of Charles T.,
refused to be crowned. She was
young, fhe was pretty, she was a
French princess, and she declined to
take part in a state function which
would compel her to partake of the
sacrament according to Church of
Caroline of Rmnswiek is the la«t
and most remarkable instance of the
uncrowned English queens.
Though George IV. had been forced
from popular indignation to give up
the bill of pains and penalties agninst
her, nothing would Induce him to let
her share his coronation. She was
not allowed to be present in West-
minster Abbey at all. Repulsed from
ill the entrance*, she returned to her
home to die within three weeks of vio-
lent fever, brought on by months of
In the Kansas capitnl square at
Topeka stands a handsome cotton
wood tree that has a history. Maj.
T. J. Anderson, who ia its historian,
and wlicu it was struggling for ex-
istence it* friend and protector,
says it first took root in 1*69. It
sprung from a seed which had found
lodgment in the atoneyard where
the contractors were dreeing stone
for the superstructure of the e-»sl
wing of the capital. In the spring
of 1870, when the men, fortified by a
new legislative appropriation, re-
turned to work after the winter a
lay-off. the little sprout had tnkee
firm root around the stone chips,
and it- was so green and vigorous ia
the waste that surrounded it that it
attracted attention. It was in the
way and the workmen wanted to
pull it up, but Maj. Anderson inter-
ceded for it and a little pen was
built around it. Henry Worrall sai4
it was a "male” tree anti would shed
no "cotton,” which added to the in-
terest in it, end so it grew and flour-
ished in the midst of the little desert
of rocks. After many years the en«t
wdng was completed and the stono-
yard was removed nnd blue gra>»
took the place of the stone chips.
In 1805 the tree was again in peril.
It had grown into majestic beauty,
and was the monarch of the capitol
square, blit it was not located exact-
ly to suit a landscape gardener who
had been imported from New York
to ‘'improve” the grounds, nnd ht
marked it for the nx. Again th#
■ friends of the tree came to the res-
cue and Gov. Morrill ordered that It

* It is the largest cottonwood tree in
Kansas, and, with the execution of
an occasional elm, the most graceful,
says the Kansas City Tiines-Stnr It
I in not so tall as some trees, being
only about 85 feet, but its spread is
! 100 feet, forming a circumference o*
: about 315 feet, and its foliage, when
I the sun is at the zenith, shades nn
aren of 7,854 square feet. The cir-
cumference of its trunk is 12 feet.
It is a favorite playground of chil-
dren, and men and women seek its
shelter from the summer sun. Tn
1895 William McKinley rested be*,
neath its foliage, and when John F.
Dillon, now of New York, wa«
United States circuit court judge, } •
never failed to visit it and comment
on its beauty when he came to To-
peka. John J. Ingalls used to speak
eloquently of It, and Preston R
Plumb’s involuntary exclamation
was: “I wish that tree waa in rfiy
yard.” This tree has witnessed th«
coming and passing of 11 governors,
including Stanley, whose successot
has already been nominated; llarvey,
Osborn, Anthony, St. John, GHck,
Martin, Humphrey. Lewelling. Mor-
rill, Leedy and Stanley. It witnessed
the rise and fall of the Farmers’ Al-
liance, the brief triumph of the peo-
ple's party and the latter’a absorp-
tion by the democratic party. Tt

beginning of the construction of the

It is a very common belief that a
drowning* man must necessarily rise
to the surface three times, no more
j and no less, before he can possibly
drown. There is little ground Dir this
supposition, although it ha* been n
1 most universally believed in for gen-
erations. The truth is that a drown-
j ing person may sink the first time
never to rise again or he may, as he
I indeed doe* in the majority of case*,
rise three times before lie sinks for-
ever. says the Chicago Chronicle.
It all depends upon the quantity of
water that he swallows when he sinks
and the size of his lungs. The human
body in life naturally floats while the
lungs are inflated. As long ns on»
( keeps his head above the surface of
the water lie can float face lip with-
out having to move hand or foot.
Hut as soon ns a person sinks he
gulps nnd imbibes n quantity of wa-
ter. If after he has swallowed the
water he has any air left in his lungs
he w ill undoubtedly rise again and will
continue to sink and rise alternately
until all the air is expelled from his
lungs, when he will drown.
In most cases the frightened victim
of an accident swallows enough water
when he first sinks to leave him in a
very exhausted condition, hut as there
is still air left in his lungs he soon finds
himself on the surface again. Each
time he sinks, however, the supply of
air in his lungs grows lesa until ulti-
mately there is no longer sufficient to
