tare t Horses.
Horses' shoulders get sore more fre
quently from ill-tilting collars than
from tenderness. Nineteen men out
of twenty have the collars one size too
big and there is a shuffiing of the col
lar on the neck, which makes a gall.
Fit the collar first. A used shoulder
becomes toughened, an unused one re
mains tender, and no medicine will
make It tough. Strong oak lea or de
coction used warm will in a measure
toughen them. Keeping the collars
clean and bathing the shoulders with
as hot water as the band will bear after
a day's work will d much toward pre
venting sore shoulder. I'.n when cal
luses are on them nothing but cutting
them out will ever remove them.

Fire Thursday afternoon wrecked the J

niture and many valuable pictures and
art works collected in Europe were de
stroyed. The tire was discovered in
the doctor's study by a servant, and is
supposed to have originated from the
furnace. At the time Dr. Hulley was
conducting a elass at the college and
Mrs. Hulley and their four children
were asleep. They escaped in scanty
clothing. The building was owned by
the Reading Railroad Company. There
was no insurance on the furniture, and
Dr. H alley's loss is heavy.

W lllam Howard, a wealthy lumhei

his intention to present a cathedral to
the Scottish Rite Masons of the Valley
of Wliliamsport, and a home to the
Temple Club, a Masonic social organ
ization. The mansion which now adorns the
property will be given to the Temple
club. The plans for the cathedral are
almost complete, and its construction
will be started within six weeks. The
estimated cost of the cathedral is $60,000.
Upon the completion of the contem
plated buildings the Masonic property
in this city will be the most costly In

very likely to make a wonderful ad

ised that as a result of Dr. Pupiu'l dis
coveries it will he possible to carry on
a conversation over a transatlantic
cable. If all the claims are supported,
it is evident that there will come a gen
eral Improvement in bug distance land
lines. It is just such possibilities as
these that will give great interest to
the telephone exhibit to be made at
the Pan-American Exjrosition. At
some time or other, in their homes or
in connection with business affairs, al
most everybody comes in touch with
tne telephone service, and for this rea
