NONE TOO FLATTERING. The solemn-faced man who drove the country omnibus never lost an opportunity to display his knowledge to a new passenger, nor had he ever been known to suppress his opinion on any subject, no matter what it might be. "They tell me you're the map that wrote the story that's running In one o* the big magazines. I forget which 't's," he said one day to a cheery pas senger who had been endeavouring to ask a few questions himself. "I believe I am," admitted tfie gen tleman. '.I've never turned my hand to writing," said the 'driver, flicking 'his horses in meditative mood. "No, sir, I've been too much took up with oth er things, but »I read everything, most.

More Wonderful Still. 'Do you know," remarked a woman to her husband, ."that Johnny is a somnambulist?" - "A what?" was the gruff query. "A somnambulist. He walks jn his sleep." "When did he bepjin to do that?" "I never noticed it until last night. After he'd gone to bed, and was sound asleep, he got up, dressed himself, went down into the cellar, and brought up a pailful of coal." "He did that in his sleep?" "Ho did. I watched him. He didn't know anything about it this morning, either. How can you explain such a thing?" "Well," replied the husband, "I zan't. But if ho had done it while he was wide awako it would have been more incomprehensible." A poor man docs not need to be a poor sort of man.

KIRSTAKOSTEOPSOMANIAC OR OTODACTYTOMANIAC? [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 11 September 1908
KIRSTAKOSTEOPSOMANIAC OK OTODACTYTOMANIAC? If you have no moustache, whis kers or 'beard upon your face you most certainly are not a kirstakastoep somaniac. The word is applied *by icicntisls to describe tfiose nervous men who are.addicted to the habit of twirling their moustaches in a kind of frenzy or meditation or when much upset. In the rfirst syllabic you sec the root, "kirkos," which means a cir cle. Perhaps, however, you may be an unconvicted otodactylomaniac. In all probability you arc. Did you ever see a man with his first finger in his ear and his arm forming an angle of 67^ degrees, ringing away at his auricular pendagc with an energy that knows no surcease. That man is suf fering from otodactylomania. Science shirks at nothing ami its records must be given to the world.

THE BEEKEEPER. I I HANDLING BEES. USE OP THE SMOKER. "It la very easy to handle bees"(wrlte3 a beekeeper in the "Michigan Farmer") "when onec one knows how-. It Is scarcely consoling to tell a novice that in time ho will grow used to being etutig; but after a time a bee-keeper really docs become inoculated, after which, although the momentary pain may be sharp, there are no disagreeable effects, such as swelling, etc. I myself thought very seriously of hav ing to give up the pursuit after one or two years' experience, for one day in j handling a colony o* bees I becamo somewhat careless and irritated them to the extent that they rushed out of the hive and stung :me desperately. I carried about a swollen arm for over a week; but it wore jaway, and I was troubled no more with bad effects. Of course, when handling bees, I wear a veii over my face and have veils always ready for visitors to my apiary; but I never protect my hands with glovos, ex cept when I go to my out-apiary, which co...
