M. Dennis, of iSatonton, had an ordinary house cat about her home. It was decided to gel rid of the cat, so tlie butler was delegated to kill it. He shot it to death and then buried it in the Dennis garden. It lay buried for two weeks, when the gardener, preparing for hla early spring jilanting, ploughed up not only the garden, but the cat. And two weeks in the grave had not dulled the cat's sense of sight, Rmell or taste, for it made a dush straight from the garden to the kitchen. vVhen tho cook recovered, the cat was given food and water. It is still nllve and running around tlie house. U. S. AMBASSADOR SUMMONED Ilerlln, via T.xjndon, April 24.-Tho tinlted States ambassador was called by telephone to the imperial Chan-tenor's palace this morning. He went immediately, and tho conference with Dr. von Bothmann-Hollweg lasted an hour and ten minutes. When he came from tJie conferenoo Ambassador Gerard declined to give any information as to the nature of the discussion, and would not answer H question as to whether anyone else was present, It is understood that the Gai-man reply to the American noto will not be delivered before the Imperial chancellor has another opportunity of conferring with the onuperor. It Floats IVORY SOAP floats. It is the original floating soap. This quality gives Ivory Soap distinct advantages. Ivory Soap always is at hand; you do not have to grope for it nor is it left in the water to waste away. Ivory Soap always is in sight; there is no danger of injuring yourself by stepping on the c�ike in the bathtub. Even if Ivory Soap were no better than other soaps its floating qualities would make it more desirable. S CENTS IVORY SOAP 99M5^PURE '1- FLOATS Procttt & Gamble Factories in Hamilton, Canada HON. J.
