Description of the Game That Is Barred From the Streets Be-Ofuse Now and Then Some Pedestrian Is Injured. The Composite Kid of Baltimore has a kick—a real, genuine, heart-throbbing kick, says the Baltimore Evening Sun. Marshal Farnan has issued orders that boys must cease playing catty on the streets. The marshal told all the assembled qaptalns of districts that Chief Engineer Samuel Dukehart of the Veteran Volunteer Firemen’s association had been struck in the face by one of the flying catties. And the marshal said that this thing of playing catty on the streets must stop. Here is the way you play catty: Take a two or three inch piece of pine, round it off and whittle’ both ends to a point; lay the catty on the ground, hit one end with a stick and as it flops up in the air smash it as you would bat a ball. Then you tell the other kid to get it in so many jumps, and if he can’t do it he gets a whack across the pocket handkerchief with the bat. 'That’s the game Marshal Faman is stopping, because, now and then, an indiscreet batter lands the catty in. a pedestrian’s eye, or spreads consternation In a group of front step sitters in an otherwise eminently quiet neighborhood. The Composite Kid was standing outside the courthouse this morning while Marshal Farnan was issuing his orders. He was freckled and snubnosed and had a string tied around his right great toe. In one hand he carried a dead, sparrow and in the other a cigarette. . “What do you think of that?’’ he exclaimed in disgust. “Say, mister, what chance’s a boy got nowadays, anyhow ? Why. first thing you know they’ll be passing laws to keep kids from growing. I was raised in Anne Arundel county, but my dad sold the farm and bought some ground rents up on Lexington street, so we moved to town to board. Soon’s I came here I found out there wasn t a swimming hole nearen’n Gwynn falls or the public baths over in Patterson park, where you have to wear bathing suits, and darn bathing suits for kids, that’s what I say. I saw a lot of kids crawling through a sewer pipe to swim in Jones falls up by the Candy factory, but that’s too dirty for me. And we had the damdest time trying to get a place to live. The agent wanted to know how many children there was, and asked If the boys were rough on wall paper.’’ Teaching Right Living. This Is an age when the necessity of education is strongly emphasized. The whole foundation of preventive medicine, of the anti-tuberculosis work, of the social service departments of the hospital, is the education of the public In regard to the laws of health. There can be little doubt that not money, nor even the lack of money, is the root of all evil, but the lack of knowledge of right livifig in the broadest sense of the words. Ig-noranco of physical right living is the cause of moat of the illness and bodily misery in the world, while Iterance of moral righp/living is largely to blame for the wickedness of the world. Bad physical condition, however, and the ignorance that causes it, have more to do with poverty and crime than most people realize;- Squalid surroundings, due largely to lack of knowledge of proper living conditions, and accompanied most likely by decreased vitality x>r outright ill health, are probably often the primary cause of the drunkennesb that brings ruin upon BO many families. The great problem of today is to teach the masses how to live a healthful life in the circumstances in which they find themselves.—Dietetic Gazette. “Natural Life." “Imprisonment for the rest of your natural life” is the form of the penalty next in dread to the death sentence. This phrase “natural life” puzzles some people who wonder If the law x‘ecognizes any “unnatural life." ' It does not, but the old common law did recognize an unnatural death, as well as a ^natural one. When a rnnn or woman takes the monastic vow people still spei^ of it as “leaving the world." In medieval times that considered a form of death* and the phrase “natural life” came into use to describe an existence terminated by the grave, not by the convent or the abbey.—^London Globe.

Chew) Old Joseph Chew was born in New Jersey and reared there. His parents died when he was quite a boy and he was “bound” to a shoemaker. He did not like the shoe-maki^ business and concluded to run away. He boarded a ship as sailor boy and made a trip to Baltimore. There he stayed until he married a girl by the name of Martha Pollox. A son, Mar-cellus, was born to them while they were still residents of Baltimore. They came west and settled in Jefferson township, Pike county. After their removal to this county there was born to them, James, Jane, Albert, Sarah, Mary Ann, Joseph, Susan and Richard. The mother died and the old man married the widow Barnett, the late James Barnett’s mother. To them was born a daughter, Cynthia. He and the Barnett woman lived together until his death. He was buried on his farm where he located, one mile south of Highbanks. Joseph Chew served two terms as County Commissioner of Pike county.

WINSLOW GAS COMPANY Guard Your Chfldren Against Bowel Trouble Many children at an early age become constipated, and frequently serious consequences result. Not being able to realize his own condition, a child’s bowels should be constantly watched, and a gentle laxative given when necessary. Dr. Miles’ Laxative Tablets are especially well adapted to women and children. The Sisters of Christian Charity, 531 Charles St., Luzerne, Pa., who attend many cases of sickness say of them: "Some time ago we began using I>r. Miles’ Laxative Tad>lets and find that we like them very much. Their action is excellent and we are grateful for having been made acquainted with them. We have had good results in every cMé and the Sisters are very much—pleased. ” The form and flavor of any medicine is very important, no matter who is to take it.. The taste and appearance are especially important when children are concerned. All parents know how hard it is to give the average child “medicine,” even though the taste is partially disguised. In using Dr. Miles Laxative Tablets, howeyer, this difficulty is overcome. The shape of the tablets, their appearance and candy-like taste at once appeal to any child, with the result that they are taken without objection. The rich chocolate flavor and absence of other taste, make Dr. Miles’ Laxative T^ablets tfte ideal remedy for children. If the ñrst box fails to benefit, the price is returned. Ask your druggist. A box of 25 doses costs only 25 cents. Never sold in bulk. MILES MBDICAI- CO.. Elkhart, Ind. S Notice to Mortgage holders.
