New York. Sept. 26.—Edward
Scully, superintendent of the street
cleaning department, was crushed
to death when he tried to Btop a
runaway horse hitched to a truck,
when it was dashing toward a crowd
of three hundred school children on
a sidewalk near the Brooklyn ward
COME M ROSS, YOC.
If you like the old town best,
Tell 'em so.
If you'd have her lead the rest,
Help her grow.
When there's anything to do,
Let the fellows count on you,
You'll feel better when It's through,
Don't you know?
If you want to make a hit,
Get a name.
If the other fellow's It,
Who's to blame?
Spend your money In the town
Where you pull the shekels down.
Give the man that kicks a frown—
That's the game.
If you're used to giving knocks,
Change your style.
Throw bouquets Instead of rocks
For a while.
Let the other fellow roast,
Shun him as you would a ghost,
Meet his hammer with a boast—
And a smile.
When a stranger from afar
Tell him who and what we are— ,
| Make it strong.
Needn't flatter, never bluff.
Tell the truth, for that's enough,
Join the Boosters—that's the stuff.

TO BE SEEN IN A CEMETERY,
All Kindt and Descriptions of Mis-
guided Persons There in Their
Last Resting Place.
Take a walk through the cemetery
alone and you will pass Ihe resting
place of a man who blew into the
muzzle of a gun to see If it was load-
ed. A little farther down the slope is
a crank who tried to show how close
he could stand to a moving train
while It passed. In strolling about
you see the monument of the hired
girl who tried to start the tire with
kerosene, and a grass-covered knoll
that covers the boy who put a cob
under the mule's tail. That tall shaft
over a man who blew out the gas,
casts a shadow over the boy who
tried to get on a moving train. Side
by side the pretty creature who al-
ways had her corset laced on the last
hole and the intelligent idiot who
rode a bicycle nine miles In ten min
utes sleep unmolested. At repose is
a doctor who took a dose of his own
medicine. There with a top of a shoe
box driven over his head Is a rich old
man who married a young wife. Away
over (here reposes a boy who went
fishing on Sunday, and the woman
who kept strychnine powders In the
cupboard. The wan who stood in
front of the mowing machine to oil
the sickle Is quiet now and rests be
Bide the careless brakeman who fed
himself to the seventy-ton engine, and
near by may be seen Ihe grave of the
man who tried to whip the editor.

DAINTIEST OF BIRD'S NESTS
Maple Leaf of Ordinary Size Will Con-
ceal the Home of the Hum-
The most exquisitely dainty home
built by the bill and feet of birds Is
that of the ruby throated humming
bird, says a writer In the Craftsman.
When completed It 1b scarcely larger
than an English walnut and Is usually
saddled on a small horizontal limb of a
tree or shrub frequently many feet
from the ground. It is composed al-
most entirely Of- soft plant liberB,
fragments of spiders' webs sometimes
being UBed to hold them In shape. The
sides are thickly studded with bits of
lichen, and practiced indeed is the
eye of the man who can distinguish it
from a knot on the limb. The eggs
are the size of quinine pills.
Although the humming bird's nest
is exceedingly frail, there appears to
be nothing on record to show that any
great numbers of them come to
grief during the summer rains. It Is,
however, not called upon for a long
tenure of occupancy. Within three
weeks after the two little white eggs
are laid the young have departed on
their tiny pinions.
Advice to Consumptives.
The only safe course for a person
suffering from consumption Is to se-
lect a good phyBiclan, and be guided
In all things by that physician'* ad-
If a new cure is discovered during
your illness your doctor will know it.
If the cure Is genuine he will know
that and be the first to insist on ap-
plying the new remedy to your case.
If the socalled cure Is a fake his cau-
tion will save you from wasting val-
uable time and strength pursuing will-
Meantime, while waiting on new-
discoveries, he will keep you on the
commonplace, but effective prescrip-
tion of reBts, plentiful diet, and all
the fresh air there is. This regime
has cured tens of thousands of caseB
of tuberculosis, and will cure hun-
dreds of thousands more.
The politics of Foss of Massachu-'
setts are certainly plural, for he
haw mixed 'em all.
