One of the speakers before the ban quet of the Massachusetts society of the Sons of the American Revolution told of nu experiment which he made several yenrs ngo. He flrst consulted historical records and ascertained the exnet time of day that the British left for Lexington. He then started to go over the same ground. From a fast walk he soon found It necessary to break Into n run and then a sprint.

NO MORE HANDSHAKING Wilson Abandons Custom ot Giving ' New Year's Reception. The Intention of President Wilson to take a fortnight's holiday during the Christmas recess of congress and to give up the regular New Year's reception at the White House Is gen erally accepted in Washington as marking the termination of the New Year's handshaking which custom has for more than a hundred years been forced upon the president. One objection to the New Year's re ception has been the indiscriminate handshaking. The secret service men have advised against It. They think the chances of some mishap are greater at the receptions than at any other time. President Taft was once compelled to have his hand bandaged In order to allay the pain occasioned by the gripping of 8,000 hands. The president's plans for his Christ mas holiday season are in an uncer tain state. Secretary Garrison is very anxious that the president make an Informal visit to the Panama canal. President Wilson, however, may de cide to accept an Invitation from one of his numerous southern friends to occupy a country house In the gulf section or in Florida. The Parrot's Threat.

Very quietly he turned the hnnds of his wntch bnck. then turned ' the hnnds of the parlor clock nnd the clock In the dining room. Then he threw his shoes on the floor nnd awoke his wife. "I.nte again, I suppose," she remarked. "My watch says one minute to 12," he replied. She hopped out of bed nnd sun-eyed the dining room clock. Not believing her sleepy eyes, she turned to the timepiece In the parlor. "All right, but how did yon do It?" she asked, ne wns n bout to give her an explanation, when the chimes of a nearby church sounded two. and his alibi was shat tered.

The making of it barrel of Portland cement will consume about 450 pounds of limestone nnd "0 pounds of clay or shale.

When the censor hnd told hlra all this Mr. Glbbs asked him politely: "Will you tell me, sir, If there Is any thing about which we shall be allowed to write?"

Kery ten yenrs the Eskimos bold the dnnce to the dend. when ghosts nre supposed to come out of their cofllus and visit the Kos-gn. where they are given a fenst. nnd retire well filled for another ten yenrs. Sometimes the food Is taken to the burying ground to save the spirits the trouble of moving. When a child Is born among the Island ers It tnkes the name of the lnst de censed member of the family, and on It devolves the duty of feeding Its fos ter father's spirit. The Eskimos have a horror of being childless becnuse their spirits will languish nnd their name be forgotten. As they any: "S'pose no mlk-n-nlnn (children) ghost plenty hungry." Often an Eskimo will beggar himself, giving a great fenst In honor of his illustrious ancestor, but he gains great renown thereby nnd places all his visitor under lifelong obligations to him.
