T. management to conductors, brakemen, engineers, firemen and yardmen, ordering all employes who entered the service prior to January 1, 1902, to report to Chief Surgeon Yancey for physical examination. The K. T. trainmen at Sedalia are evidently not superstitious.

For the past twenty-five years an engine numbered 13 has been used out of Sedalia, and no one feels nervous about taking it out. So far as known, no serious accident has ever happened to No. 13. Engine 303 was taken out of the Katy shops yesterday and was given a trial by Traveling Engineer Manchester, who kept the track between the shops and the stock yard pretty warm during the afternoon.

The state board of equalization has increased the assessment in this county $349,962, bringing the total taxable property in the county to 178, of which amount the county will pay $27,627 in state These are the days when you see people scratching their shins and muttering coherently something about chiggers. The best remedy after you have them is to rub the affected part with crude petroleum or ammonia. The insect is particularly vigorous this year owing to the west weather. Boyd Stevenson shipped a load of good horses last week to points south. Another buyer from Galveston is here picking up a load for shipment south.

He is taking all classes of good cattle and horses and is paying all the way from $70 to $200. Both loads have been held at Wherry Quatts' barn. The amateur ball players were getting in their work Sunday.

The boys in the southeast part of town also enjoyed a game of ball on East Appleton avenue.

A woman giving her name as Nellie Brown was picked up by Marshal Bennett at the Katy station Sunday afternoon in a deplorable state. Her clothes were almost torn off her.

Roquefort cheese, like many other unique food productions, has its legend of accidental origin. A shepherd lad. having for once more luncheon than he could eat, while tending his flock of sheep, laid a large portion of his bread and cheese upon a natural shelf in one of the caverns nearby. Boylike, he forgot all about it until several months later on returning to that cavern he found his luncheon. The cheese.

instead of being dried up or rotten, was rich, moist and creamy and streaked with greenish blue veins of mold, the remains of the bread which had lain on or under it. He probably told his mother of his discovery and shared his piece of cheese with others. The villagers were quick to recognize the improved texture and quality of the cheese, and henceforth all their cheeses were taken to these caves to ripen. The caves are owned by a joint stock company, who employ about six bundred vomen to tend the cheese. Oak shelves on which the cheeses are placed and so arranged that each cheese may have one side next the cold wall of the cave give over 65,000 square yards of storing room.

Cows Worse Than Bulls. It is said that the Spanish bullfighter refuses to face a cow, as being so much more dangerous. A bull makes a blind rush at his assailant, and this a little knowledge and experience will soon enable an active man to avoid, but a cow fences with her horns with a skill and quickness unexpected in such an apparently clumsy animal, and a man must be active indeed who can avoid the repeated attacks of an angry cow. The bull, in a state of nature, fights to obtain the mastery of the herd and not to kill, but the cow only to protect her offspring, and, in her case, there is no quarter given. It would not be to the advantage of the herd that the bulls should kill each other in determining which was the stronger, and therefore they do not use their horns as lethal weapons, but it is, on the other hand, greatly to the advantage of the calves, and so of the future of the herd, that all enemies that dare to attack them should be slain.

Overstated. In a well known Lancashire town there resides a man who is about as careful of a shilling or two as a man can well be and appear anything like decent. He is in business, in comfortable circumstances, and, being thrifty, honest and industrious, he was considered quite the most eligible bachelor of the neighborhood notwithstanding his painful exactness in matters financial. He finally married a widow worth in her own right some £15,000, and shortly after the ceremony an old friend met him. "Allow me," he said, "to congratulate you.

Your wedding was worth a clear £15,000 to you." "No," he replied; "not quite so much." "Indeed! I thought there was every penny of £15,000 in it." "Oh, no," said the Benedict; "I had to pay £2 12s. 6d. for the marriage license! -London Answers. Only Jar of Its Kind. Horace Walpole told a lively story of an old porcelain vender who had an exceedingly rare and valuable jar on which he set an almost fabulous price.

One hot summer a slight volcanic shock, such as the British occasionally experience, jogged his house about his ears and split his porcelain To an ordinary mind the accident would have been calamitous, but the china seller rose superior to fortune. He doubled the price of the article immediately and advertised it as "the only jar in the world which had been cracked by an earthquake." Nothing very slow about that; whether he got li's money is not added, but certainly he deserved it. The Cossack's Whip. People who are unacquainted with Russia and who read of street disturbances being suppressed by the Cossacks with their whips have little idea of what formidable weapons these are. Made of hard leather and tapering to a fine point, they are triangular in shape, and the Cossack who knows how to bring the edge down upon his victim can inflict a wound that is not infrequently fatal.

A favorite stroke is one by which the eye and a portion of the cheek are cut. Origin of Kilts. It will doubtless surprise many Scotchmen to learn that the kilt as at present worn is only a modern fancy costume and is not of Scottish origin at all. The honor of its invention is due to two Englishmen an army. tailor who accompanied General Wade's forces to Scotland in 1719 and Thomas Rawlinson, overseer of some iron works in Glengarry's country.

For more' than a century previously, indeed, the tartan plaid had been the common garb of the highlanders, but it was all in one piece, wound in folds around the body, leaving the knees bare. Prior to the adoption of the tartan, which probably took place about the close of the fifteenth century, the long, loose saffron colored skirt, the real "garb of old Gaul," was the highland Mail. bias ed 201 201 LOCAL TIME TAbLE K.
