seur Ne ws ofI Clothespin Led to Invention How James D. Layng Came to De vise the Circuit Breaker for Uniting Ends of Cut Tele graph Wire. Vice-president of the Big Four sys tem, second vice-president of the West Shore, and at various stages of his career in important positions with the Pennsylvania lines and the Chi cago & Northwestern, the late James D. Layng, who died in 1908, was one of the great railway managers of the last century. He began his railway career in 1849 and for upwards of half a century was intimately associated with the development of American railways. When I called upon him one sum mer day in 1895. I found him twirling in the fingers of one hand a little ap paratus that resembled somewhat a double ended clothespin. My curiosity was aroused and I asked him about it. "That." Mr. Layng replied, after look ing steadily at the little Instrument for a moment, "represents a lost for tune-probably several millions-any way, a great deal of money. It is what is call...

JOSEPH, LA., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1910. NUMBER 44. Ure Ghosts Reb FFTER all, It seems that i there really ;are Fucta things as ghosts -Sci ence at last accords them a somiewhat bc lated recognition- thoulgh. of course, re- I fusing to acknowledge that they are super natural. On the con trary (according to the newly accepted( theory), they are to be classed as natural phenomena, chemical in char acter. Why is it that ghosts, since time immemorial, have been so intimately associated with graveyards? Why is it that the dead in cemeteries are so universally believed to "walk" at night? Why, when specters walk, are they so generally accustomed (in pop ular belief) to be sheeted-that is to say, clad in winding sheets-though nowad(ays people are nearly always burled in ordinary clothing? These questions, and others equ...

FOURNIER d'ALBE E ARE graduaily and inevitably drawn to the conclusion that W mind is everything and matter but an expression of the univer sal mind. A table, a house, or a machine is the embodiment of some human mind. A stone is the embodiment of some y mind at present inaccessible to us. of some will at present in- e' scrutable. Matter signifies existence, life independent of ourselves, but subject to our will under certain oonditions, just as men si are to some extent. Motion means change or experience.

ohn Henry's Wedding By GEORGE V. HOBART Clara J. had said "yes," and the next evening I waded into the Van vivver raInsion to drag Papa's and Mamma's consent away from them. So long as I played light comedy roles I knew I was a hot favorite with the old folks at home, but when it came to doing a leading part and walking off with the daughter, I be gan to get uneasy for fear they'd reach for the egg basket and hand me a few unripe scrambles. When I squeezed through the por tiere I found the old lady and gentle man very busy discussing their plans for a summer trip. "Where are you going to spend the summer. John?" inquired Father, giv ing me a limp paw, which I shook hurriedly and then handed back to him. Here was an opening-a grand chance to butt in right at the go off. "Well, to tell you the solemn, we haven't decided yet," I answered. "WE!" they both echoed. "Why, John, I thought you were playing a lone hand?" said the old gentleman. "I've always known you as a young man who could ...

GOOD APPLE BUITER Snitzing Party Period Is Now a Thing of the Past. Modern Methods of Manufacture Have Robbed Pennsylvania Farmers of Delightful Frolics Held in the Fall. Garfield, Pa.-During September and! October of each year all roads in Berks county lead to the cider and apple butter mills, for this is the sea son when everybody has more ap ples that he needs for winter use. There is no farming community in Berks county today that does not have its community cider mill, where farm ers can take their apples in the morn ing and return with the cider a few hours later, but there are only two Jr three places in this great agrt -ultural county where the farmer can so speedily turn his fruit into nice, fresh apple butter. Marvelous as it appears to grand mother, who used to sit in the old 'armbouse kitchen with her little Bar low knife, peeling the rinds off the red cheeked apples. paring them next morning in the barrel-sized copper kettle to be cooked into apple butter, It still appe...

eNATIONS NEW "r- __ DREADNAUGIIIS ' t until the Panama canal is com pleted and open for traffic. After that water way is com pleted and the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the nited States are in effect brought nearer together in a naval sense-r that is, it is made pos b ple for our warshtlas to get from one coast to the other more quickly in the event of trouble--it might, in the presi dent's judgment, be advisable to slow down in the matter of battleship building. Perhaps after the canal dig gers have cut the continent in two it will suffice to build one battleship a year, but for the time being two a year-and Dreadnaughts at that are needed, in the opinion of the administration. Now "Dreadnaughts" are a comparative novelty to the United States navy and for all that there are several of these vessels flying the Stars and Stripes, and more building, there is a consider able share of the public that has never grasped the significance of these new-style sea warriors.
