Street Tramway Men Go Out on
Peaceful Strike.
Paris, June 0. Fifteen hundred con
ductors and mechanicians employed
by the Paris Northern tramwnys went
on strike and caused the entire sus
pension of service on thirty different
Hues. The decision to strike was
reached at n meeting nt the Labor ex
change, a motion to that effect being
carried umld great enthusiasm. Mes
sengers mounted on bicycles were Im
mediately sent to twenty depots to
prevent the men starting to work.
It is possible that the strike may
spread to the Eastern tramway lines.
So far no disorders have been reported.
The trouble has been caused by the
employment of nonunion men.
Drinking Water.
Wheu very thirsty and only a small
nmouut of water is at baud drluk with
u spoon or through n small hole In the
cork of a canteen. It will do as much
good as when taken in large mouth
fuls. Animals and Sight.
Iu the water fishes see only at very
clone range about half their own
length. This will seem perhaps unlike
ly to anglers, although some of them
can cite Instances showing that fish
cannot see far. Snakes seem to have
a very mediocre sense of sight. The
boa, for instance, does not see nt more
than a quarter of Its own length. Dif
ferent species uro limited to oue-flfth
or one-eighth of their length. Frogs
ivo better off. They see nt llfteen to
twenty times their length.
Buying Sweethearts.
Jn tho Kamyshin district of Russia
o. suitor has to buy his sweetheart

family costs ubout $100.
An English Superstition.
It Is a favorite superstition lu Eng
land that the bacon of swine killed in
the wuulng of the moon will waste
away in tho process of curing or cook
ing much more than bacon of hogs
killed while tho moon Is growing.

the right." Also the beautiful big
banner which was presented to

Gettysburg for securing the largest
number of Crusader subscriptions of
any county in Pennsylvania. Mrs.

partments were given. After a dis
cussion of the work of the anti-narcotic
department, the resolution and
credential committees and committee

tions. Miss Edna Chumard render
ed a recitation and a member of the
Oregon legion read an essay, "Our
Pledge." "The Junior Half Hour"

sages sent from Mrs. Coleman of Da
mascus and Mrs. Margaret Stanton
of Carhondale. Mr. John Riefier
gave a plea for now members of tho
Honesdale legion and a number of
young people joined at the close of
the convention. It seems queer that
Honesdale Is tho largest town in the
county and has one of the smnllest
legions. What is tho matter with the
young people of Honesdale? There
surely Is enough of them for the
streets and tho cigar stores nro sel
dom minus a crowd of young men.
Tho delegates from the various leg
glons are planning their trip to tho
Stato convention at Warren. They
certainly ought to bo proud of the
report they are to take with them
this yenr, and wo hope some of tho
delegation may bo from Honesdnle.
