About a year ago he loaned his broth

Under the mistaken idea that stampa
are legal tender, with a deposit of bul
lion behind them in the national treas
ury, the debtor recently paid hli
brother the $200 in atamp. That
amount of money in one-dollar billi
makes a rather bulky roll, a anyone
who ever nati that much at once can
testify, but $200 in one-cent and two
cent stamps would till a large waste
basket. The Pittsburgh brother takes
the debtor'B word for the correctness
of the count, for lie cannot afford to
hire on auditor, and his own time ii
too valuable. The stamps ore not

A lady resident of Mexico, Mo., has
just won a curious lawsuit brought
against her by a Connecticut firm
which manufactures bronze monu
i msnts. Some time uco she ord tired
from the plaintiffs u $384 bronze mon

parents, with this inscription:
"The Lord Is my shepherd,
I shall not want."
The engraver made it read "fear" in
stead of "want," nnd Mrs, Doty re
fused to pay the bill. The lawsuit fol
lowed. The judge instructed the jury
that if they considered tfce inscription
to be a material variance from the
words of the psalmist they should lind.

Many humorous features were de
veloped in the taking of the ceusua

were answereu in figures in this way:
20x 40, 15x30, etc The enumerators
had gone around with a foot rule and
had measured the length of the resi
dences of the people they counted.
Rest rooms for farmers' wives are
lieing established in some towns in
the west. They are located in the
business center and are made cozy
anil comfortable with easy chairs,
lounges, books and magnzincs. Some
offer tea, at the nominal price of three
cents a cup. These rooms are sus
tained by women's clubs in the cities,
or the merchants of the cities contrib
ute to them, with the idea that they
help to draw trade.
