January 1st, of tnis year, from a visit
with Bsister at Coudersport, Pa. Mr.
Smith was boru in Bollybogan, Irelaud,
and came to this county early in life.

Interment was made in the Beechwooa

for one of his age. He retained all his
faculties up to the last. He was a
great reader and was Blways well
posted on what was transpiring in hla
community and the world in general.
He was the most faithful attendant
at church and Sunday school of any
member In the Falls Creek Presby
terian church. Although 87 years old
yet up to time of his death he was a
teacher In the Sunday school. Think
of it some of yoa people who are too
old at 35 and 40 to go to Sunday school.
Sixty years ago last Sept. Mr. Smith
and sixteen other persons organized
and became members of the Beech
woods Presbyterian church. Of the
seventeen who united with the church
that day only two are now living, and

Illegible handwriting, which hag glv

a irageuy m me case or uacner, a
musical enthusiast of the last century
who devoted several years to the com
position of a history of Viennese mu
sic. Ills task finished, he submitted
the manuscript to the Austrian im
perial academy, which he had been led
to believe would defray the cost of its
publication. After three months his
manuscript was returned. Despite
their best efforts the members had
been unable to decipher it Bacher
then endeavored to, have his work
copied, but every professional copyist
who undertook the task bad to confess
himself bullied. He thereupon at
tempted dictating the work, only to
find that even he could not decipher
it, and, heartbroken at the discovery
that his years of toll bad proved fruit
less, he attempted suicide and finished
his days in a lunatic asylum.

hopelessly insignificant, and instead of
staggering him with the kiss that he
expected she looked him up and down,
comparing him with a certain gentle
man whose acquaintance she had re

breeches and silk stockings.

abandon the ship In haste. Ordera
were given to unload upon the Ice
everything that would be of use in the
long winter yet before the men. The
work must be done with dispatch.
While the crew was passing the
bags over the side of the ship the cook,
who was of on excitable nature, sud
denly appeared at the rail with a large
bag, which he heaved over with all his
strength. It struck the Ice below with
a resounding crash, causing one of the
sailor's to exclaim:
"Hello, coolc, what was that?"
"Oh, that is all right," be answered.
"It was lamp chimneys nnd flattrons."
But it was hardly all right, for dur

a poison it has been known from very
early times. The peasant women of

having faith In its virtues as a beauti

are addicted to Its nse In the mistaken
belief that it increases their bodily

Odd French English.
A correspondent has been studying
English pronunciation in a French dic-
! tlonary (Pierre Larousee, 1890) and
picks out a few examples to show how
much effort Is necessary for a French
I man to acquire a true articulation of
English. They are all taken from
a surprisingly long list of English
phrases current lu France. "Broken
down" (as applied to a race horse) is
"bro-k'n-daoun." "Dead heat" is ren
dered as "dld-hith," which Is ingenious,
but hardly correct "Ai-lalf is not a
bad attempt for "high life," although
the aspirate Is missing. "Self govern
ment" looks an even more Imposing
political Ideal as "self gheuvernmentt,"
and the word "shocking" Is quite ap
plicable when rendered "chok-lnn-que."

On one occasion, when. Arthur Rob

ing the part of Captain Crosstree lu

at Glasgow he converted an awkward
contretemps into a bit. in one of the
scenes Crosstree entered supposed to
be Inebriated and staggered about the
stage. In doing so Mr. Aoberts acci
dentally came In contact with the
scenery of the inn, bringing the whole
set down. The curtain had to be low

came to the front and said. "Ladies
and gentlemen, you see when we come

Supreme Court Ways.
When the supreme court of the Unit
ed States assembles at 12 o'clock on
each Monday the room is filled with
lawyers, clerks, newspaper men and
spectators. Houtine announcements
are made by the chief justice In a
voice no one can understand. Deci
sions of great moment are rendered by
other justices In mumbled words which
are not heard. Lawyers, clerks, news
paper men and spectators stare hard at
the honorable justice who may be talk
ing or reading, some with hands curv
ed into a round board so tbat'tbey can
catch a few words if possible. But no
one In the courtroom shouts "Louder!"
No one would last very long if he did.
And should a person be sentenced for
contempt of the supreme court it would
be the end. As an old colored em
ployee once said, "Dere ain't no appeal
