RIDING A CAMEL.
A Strenuous Task That Promotes a
Love of Walking.
Riding a .camel is by no means an
easy or enjoyable method of locomo
tion, according to the description given
by Mr. M. J. Randall in his book,
"Sinai In Spring:"
"If asked 'How do you ride a camel
I reply invent as many attitudes as
you can and employ them all in turn
adjust and readjust the rugs and cush
ions on which you sit ride straight
ride crooked ride with stirrups made
of rope ride without them hitch first
your right knee round the front pom
mel, then your left knee stretch your
self wide legged over the saddlebags
regardless of the firearms, dates
crockery, etc., which they contain un
til nature commands you to make
less obtuse angle ride side saddle, if
you can persuade your Bedouin that it
is possible to do so without prejudice
to the camel. Ride how you will and
When you will, but, above allwalk
Not only is the sheik himself glad
at your suggestion, but not otherwise
to mount for awhile, but it is a lesson
in graceful riding to watch him
perched up there, heaven knows how.
in some oriental way you have never
dreamed of, and it is a lesson in courte
sy to mark how at every turn of the
road he offers to forego his pipe of
peacechiboukand post of comfort
and descend to tbe sand, leaving you
to incumber his beast of burden."
LUGGAGE IN ENGLAND.
None of It Goes Astray Because the
People Are All Very Honest.
Certain strangers within our gates
have been wondering at our dealing
with passengers' luggagehow much
better the system of other countries,
where you get a receipt and when
the bag goes astray the official assures
you it is impossible because there is
the receipt. So you go to bed and get
up and dress in your bit of paper
Our method is insular and on the
face of it chaotic. We throw our lug
gage to the mercy of some unknown
porter. At the end of the journey we
find a sort of lucky tub of portable
property piled on the platform, and
we plunge about and pick out what
we want You know the scenea
hundred people who have only to say
"That's mine" to a strange porter in
order to get it.
Thus badly stated the system looks
like chaos and the invitation to a
general scramble for other mens
goods. In practice it works out well,
for every one, from porter to passen
ger, is on his honor, andthis is the
pointluggage in England is safer
than in any other civilized country.
Fulton himself said one day: "Nei
ther M. Desblancs nor I invented the
steamboat If that glory belongs to
any one it is to the author of the ex
periments at Lyonsof the experi
ments made in 1783 on the Saone"
The one Fulton had in mind and to
whom he thus generously rendered the
"glory" was the Marquis de Jouffray.
born in 1751. fourteen years before the
year of Fulton's birth Jouffray^
claim to be regarded as the inventor
of thp steamboat stands thus: His A es
sel, built in 1783. notwithstanding its
faulty construction, embodied all the
elements essential to success. In it he
anticipated Watts' invention of a
steam engine having a constant and
unremitting action. Lack of funds
was the only thing that stood in the
way of his gettng all the honors that
came later to Robert Fulton.New
A Curious Locomotive.
The Darjeeling-Himaiayab railway is
one of the most curious in the world
It is of two toot gauge and on ac
count of the steepness is full of loops,
"curves and spirals, many ot the curves
having only seventy feet radius. Some
of the gradients are as high as one
foot in twenty-eight. A special type of
locomotive, the Garratt. had to be
made for it at Manchester. This loco
motive was required by the specifica
tions to be able to travel on reverse
curves not exceeding sixty feet radi
us, with only twenty feet of length of
tangent between the curves. Ine en
gine consists of a frame supported at
each end by four wheeled bogies, each
of which is described as a mioiauite
locomotive without boiler Tbe boiler
is carried on the frame between the
bogies Youth's Companion
Sandy and his master drove up to
the small station as the train approach
ed. "Here's yer train, sir." said San
dy. "That is not my train." replied the
master, who had his own ideas about
correct speech. "But it's the train I
am sroing by." But it happened to be
a special train and didn't stop at the
station, whereupon Sandy exclaimed,
"We're baith wrang. for it's neither
your train nor the ane ye're gaun by.
but it's the ane that's gane by you."

WHAT THE HIIXNEys DO.
Their Unceasing Work Keeps Us Strong
All the blood in the body passes
through the kidneys once every three
minutes. The kidneys filter the blood.
They work night and day. When
healthy they remove about 500 grains
of impure matter daily, when un
healthy some part of this impure
matter is left in the blood. This
brings on many diseases and symp
tomspain in the back, headache,
nervousness, hot, dry skin, rheuma
tism, gout, gravel, disorders of the
eyesight and hearing, dizziness, ir
regular heart, debility, drowsiness,
dropsy, deposits in the urine, etc.
But if you keep the filters right you
will have no trouble with your kid
Thomas Post, Main St.. Princeton,
Minn., says: "My back was very
lame and I was annoyed by a too fre
quent desire to pass the kidney secre
tions. Doan's Kidney Pills gave me
relief from these symptoms of kidney
complaint and greatly strengthened
my back. I feel justified in recom
mending this remedy in view ot the
benefit it has brought me."

Princeton Union makes it a point to turn out none but the former

Nothing Looks Worse Than
Botched Job Printin g.
It is a drawback to the business of a merchant or anyone else who uses
it. Botched Job Printing suggests loose methods. Then why not use
the kind printed by the Union? It costs you no more and gives the
public a good impression of your business. The Princeton Union is
prepared to execute every description of
Commercial and Fancy Printing
at short notice and nominal prices. If you are in need of letterheads,
noteheads, billheads, statements, cards, posters, programs, wedding

same placed with the Union will insure its being produced in an at-
tractive and un-to-date style.
