Y. M. C. A., which had flourished here
for" a time, Mr. Trapp said that he had

hitler against the organization on account of what had happened in connection with that here years ago, but
structions given out by the secretaries. The Y. M. C. A. was helping
men, socially, mentally, bodily and
spiritually. In concluding, he stated
that if a number of men would set
to work, he did not see why they
should not raise ihe $2,7no collected
by Mr. Trapp to $27,000 in a few
weeks. Mr. Graham was roundly applauded at the conclusion of his remarks.
A. W. Gray, T. H. Smith, W. R. Gilley, P. Feeney, J, H. Vidal, F. P. Maxwell and Mr. McMillan all addressed
the audience, commending the work
of the T. M. C. A., and promising to

(mc  Wnrd'��  Meaning*'
English Is a most remarkable lan
guage. I; has s >me peculiarities of :.:.
extraordinarily rich vocabulary ami
others of the poorest aud most barren
tongue, separate words for minute distinctions and single words that hare
many meanings. Many examples oi
both peculiarities can be found in the
Dialect Dictionary, nn English pub!:
cation. Every farmer's boy knows bow
to use the words lamb, sheep, ewe anu
ram. but h,v-v many of ihem would be
able to define the words tag, tup-hog
teaser, tvp-seg, tup-veld and six tootn
eacb of which fixes tbe age or the se.\
of a Bheep? I'or example, a tup-bo.; i.
a young ram before tbe first shearing.
On the other band, take the word
rick. As used by people lu one part
of England or another it may mean a
neck of mutton, tbe bones of n dead
horse, a blew, a sharp pain, a kitchen
fireplace, j art of a baud loom, a reach
ln a river, a ford, a pathway a rut. n
gap In a hedge, a flying cloud, to pour off
liquor, to "tuck. These are the unusual
meanings, and there are others more
common.���Youth's Companion.
Tbe  Dime.
That neat and lovable little coiu, the
dime, has had a most useful history.
As far as we are aware, It is unique
among the world's coins, having no
nearer equivalent than the English sixpence, wblch is worth 2 cents more. It
ls one of the handiest of coins, being
about ns small as a silver pie.e can
conveniently be. Being less in s'ze and
weight than the nickel, which is worth
only half as much, it is vastly more
convenient to keep and hoard, and tbat
is one reason why It is becoming extraordinarily scarce In spite of the
fact that more dimes are now turned
out of the mints than ever before ia
tbe country's history. There is a rage
for "dime banks.*' and some of these
mechanical contrivances are so pretty,
so ingenious and so alluring that they

remarkable  In color and graceful  lu

But beneath the pleasing exterior ol
this brilliant fungus a poison lurks sn

and In different countries mothers can
tlon their children to beware of Ifx
Amanita   muscarla,   the  deadly,     -
fly, amanita, is completely Incased i
a fleece-like covering during the earl;
stages of its growth, whicb make:,
decidedly   egg   shaped   in   form      A

and these ruptured, fleecy covering;
are pronounced characteristics wliii i
are most helpful In distinguishing this
dangerous fungus from the other varie
ties of mushrooms.
It  ls  strong,   free  from   pests   an
grows to a height Irom lour to sis:
Inches.   In color tlie cap is sometlm >���
bright scarlet, again orange or yellow
or reddish In the center and I it. h t yei
low  toward  the edges, and  It   bus  n i
ticeable   wart like  patches  spread  ova:

forms of the deadly amanita are loiin I
whicli are almost white.   The stem  i

This mushroom is more general!,
known than any of the other poison
ous species. It lias long been used ;i ���
a fly poison in |-ur>pc, tiad II take., ita
name, muscarla, from the I. itin wom
for a fly. Its p ilsonous effect upon human beings begins a few hours aftei
it has been eaten. The symptoms are
nausea nnd faintness, with cold perspiration aud stupor, followed lu se
vere cases by death, from a gradual
weakening of the heart,
A strong emetic should be given at
once, and in all cases a physician
should bo called. Sulphate of atropln
Is the only known chemical antidote
for this poison,'and to save the pat leu'
It must be promptly administered by
hypodermic injections.
Tbe poison may also be absorbed
through the pores of the skin, and bad
cases of poisoning have been produced
by simply holding an amanita In the
closed liiiiid or breathing Its exhalations Iii ii warm room.
If poisonous mushrooms ure packed
lu the same box with edible ones tbe
virus from the poisonous fungi is absorbed by the harmless mushrooms,
and they become as dangerous to ent
as tbe origiual offenders.
In certain countries the deadly amn
uita seems to lose some of its vlrulen-
cy, and In the north of Russia an 1
parts of northeastern Asia it is used lu
the same ma mier as wine for its lv
toxicatlng effects. The mushrooms iii

whole Is enough to produce a day's intoxication.
Another fatally dangerous meml t
of the nmanltn family is the deal i
cup (Amanita pbaUoldes), a beaiiti,' I
mushroom which .-ilso grows in the
woods, especially in pine forests. Hi.
not so highly colored ns the deadly
amanita. nnd, unlike that mushroom,
it has a smooth, satiny cnp. It is usually white or straw colored^ but spec:
mens are found which are light brown,
freon, yellow and spotted. The stem
ta white and nearly smooth, and tha
cup at tbe base of tbe stem ls Invari i

The death cup is even more poison
ous than the deadly amanita aud
stands first among all noxious funs;'
for Its poisonous qualities. It grows
In the eastern and middle states at: I
In particularly large quantities near
the city of Washington.

Sugar has been known since the dawn
of history, but not In all countries. The
Chinese appear to have delighted theil
palates with sugar for more than 3,000
years, and it was known in India earlier than In Europe, being made from
a juicy reed or cane. One of Alexander the Great's generals carried sugar
to Oreoce In the year 325 B. O., ns Sir
Walter Raleigh some 2,000 years later
carried tobacco from Virginia to Knf-
land. But even so late as 150 A. D.
sugar was still a rarity in Greece. The
famous physician Galen used lt as a
remedy for certain maladies. Recent
experiments show that sugar fias remarkable sustaining power when eaten
by those undergoing great fatigue. Tbe
Invention of the first process for refining sugar Is ascribed to the Arabs, not
a Venetian merchant Is said to have
purchased the secret from them and
[ Introduced the process in Sicily. The
refining of sugar was first practiced _!���
England about 1059.
