Trad it i mis Regarding ths Daath off Sir Cloudesley 8hov«l. Of the almost complete wrect of a squadron under Sir Cloudesley Shovel on the rooks of the Scilly isles, together with the death of its gallant commander, the greatest seaman of the age, a number of curious traditions are associated both with the events leading up to the catastrophe and the fate of the celebrated admiral. The outstanding feature of the catastrophe, is the mystery of Shov- «1*8 death, which will probably never be solved, and the latter turns upon admiral's emerald ring. One tory goes that the body was picked up on the shore by a soldier and his wife and buried by them on Porth Hellick sands. A spot is still shown at Porth Hellick as being the burial place of the admiral, and, accord- ing to tradition, grass has never grown upon it. Subsequentl...

And nearly every citizen whom we have talked with about the bridges, criticizes them as hardly worthy of the name. There are a few, very few excep- tions where bids were called for and bonds given. But think of over $40,000 for bridges alone and still the bills for them roll in.

OLD ROMAN HOTELS. •r Lian G ^B The traveler who is prone to complain of «leepless nigh ta spent 1 in uncomfortable hotel* in this country may find some solace in this account of the Roman hotels in the days of the late republic and the empire: Most of the hostelries and tav- erns of Borne, says Humbert de Gallier in "Usages et Moeurs d'Au- trefois," were situated along the Appian way. Some of them were passable. It was at one of the bet- ter ones that Cicero used frequent- ly to stop and write his letters. The most interesting hostelries, however, were near the circuses and amphitheaters. The shrewd and generally dishonest owners had a double purpose in selecting that situation. It was well chosen for the patronage of the huge crowds that went to the circuses on holi- days to see the fights between wild animals and the gladiatorial com- bats, and the landlords could buy conveniently and reasonably ...

Store News By HOLLAND. THE successful advertiser makes bis advertisements newsy. He tells people some- thing they want to know. Some years ago. through a political disagreement be- tween a publisher In Phila- delphia and a big advertiser, the big advertiser's page ad- vertisement was withdrawn from one daily paper. That paper's circulation dropped off tremendously within a week. The women wanted a paper that would give them the news of bargains, the news that would save money. The methods that are suc- cessful in a big way will be successful when modified to suit the conditions in a small way. Has your store made a price reduction to get rid of odds and ends? It would in- terest possible customers. Tell the news of your store to your public. If you have some particularly choice ap- ples or potatoes, a new pat- tern in gingham, calico or silk, a kind of candy that ds especially toothsome, a style of shoe that will suit the college boy or the elderly man who cares for comfort rather t...
