What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

How long the average schoolbook lasts is u matter for speculation. The life of the average book differs with the locality of the school and the character of the pnpils. In some sections, for instance, the book« are converted into playthings for the baby at home, while in others the greatest pride is manifested in pre­ serving the books clean and unimpaired. So. too, u geography of a good kind will last frequently several years, while one season of work is generally the limit of endurance of a primer. Whatever may 1m the total number of t>ooks used up in a year, it is certain that the em­ ployees of tlie board who handle them haven't an overplus of leisure. From the middle of January till March 1 three express wagons are kept constantly oa the move distributing the packages to the schools. The number of pupils on register is about 1)8,000, so that t he per capita cost for books is only a little ovor$I per year. In the primary grades, where a largj portion of the total registry is found many of the youngsters require only ehies and primers. Higher up, however, in tho ;;c:hc:!:and hi^h svhools the cost of books for each pupil, if it were not borne by the board, would range from £:J or £-1 to $7 or $8 per year, so that the free boo:; system is universally regarded as a boon to the public school children.—Brooklyn Eagle. rÄiLÜii C>? ¡ViA«vh-!¿¡M.

Alexander Jones, the richest man on the island o f Barbadoes, wants an Am er- can race horse to beat the Jamaica thor­ oughbreds that have been carrying every­ thing before them at the Bridgetown bar­ racks. He doesn’t w a n t a Salvator, or a Lam plighter, or a Tammany. A horse that can go a m ile in about 1:46 is good enough. The Firenzi o f theCaribbees has a record o f 1:49. M r. Jones always insists ofi a pedigree, however. H e isn’t particular about the horse. The Barba­ dians are “ death” on pedigrees. Four v«ara airo a Clifton selling nlater—than wincn there is no more miserable crea­ ture on earth— w a s shipped to a firm in Bridgetown, and nearly nil the Jamaica thoroughbreds were driven off the island by him.

It was in Bayard Taylor's day that the sun myth had its vogue. One night at a party Taylor was greatly bored by the persistent efforts o f a guest to discuss sun myths. No matter what direction the conversation might take this person would ruthlessly drag, it back again to his favorite topic. At lost the distressed poet raised a very interesting question in ¡ regard to tho threadbare subject. “ Did you ever think.** he asked, “ that the .name Smith so common all over the world is derived from sun myth?\ No one had ever dreamed of sncli thing. Max Muller had overlooked the point completely. “ Quite possible, certainly most plaus­ ible,” «aid Taylor. “Sun myth, Sumyth, Smyth, Smith, ami some still spell the nr.iie vu h a jv Th? ¿’'.•\nssion ¡was ended. —Youth’s Companion.

Tlu* district court is somewhat unde- cfcled 4^'iuwhat is tlie liest course to putsile tu tlu* case of the State versus Edward Porter, charged with carving .-ifiiother colored man named Clark with a 'knife. The trouble arises over the fact that Juror Oswald is taken with a fit every time blood is mentioned, and the case lias to rest until he recovers. The very mention of a wound or the showing of a knife sends him into a fit of shivers, and the attorneys are struggling along in an effort to conduct the case without the use of gory details. That is prac­ tically impossible. The court cannot re­ lease the jury ami try the case again un­ der the rule that a man once in jeopardy is always in jeopardy aud cannot be tried twice, except in case o f a disagreement. The case is a {wculiar one.—Minneapolis Cor. Chicago Herald. Sw ttclieU Off by m Iiurro. A peculiar accident happeued theother day on the Bakersfield and Saa Miguel railroad at Asplialto. The train was made up and ready to start for Bakers­ field. when a young burro was seen rub­ bing himself on the switch. When the train started, the shriek of the locomo­ tive whistle frightened him. and he jumped with such force against the switch as to throw it open just as the train arrived. As a result the locomo­ tive and four of the cars w e re ditched.— Cor: San Francisco Chronicle.
