Absurd Beliefs About Hedgehogs
In olden days the hedgehog was ac
credited with the possesion of many
wonderful powers. Pliny and after
him Aelian and others have related
how it would climb apple and iig trees,
shake down the fruit and afterward
fall upon and impale the fruit on its
spines and carry them off upon its
back. The belief that it was in the
habit of milking cows during the night
is likewise a \ cry old one.

Why She Prized It
At a whist party an unmarried lady
won a consolation prizo, which proved
to be a small dressed doll in male at
tire. Unwrapping the toy, the donor
discovered thut he head had been brok
en off.
"Never mind!" exclaimed the recip

all the more on that account. It's the
first man that ever lost his head over
me in all my life."

such as rail braces, rail sections, of
various weights; switch stand targets,

It is said that Rumania, with 000,000
soldiers, is virtually ready to enter the
war on the side of the allies.
An Important advance has been mado
by the British army, if, as is roported
in London, it has virtual possession of
Lille. This city lies just south of the
Belgian border to the east of the battle
line held for several months and its
occupation by the British would mean
that a sharp bend has been made in the
German front. Neither the French nor
German war official statements, how
ever, has given official confirmation of
the London dispatch.
