SHUN SOUP, SAYS DR. OSLER.
Famous Physician Says lt ls Posi
"Dr. Osier certainly set the country
by the ears when he advocated chlo?
roform for those who had passed t'ai
fortieth milestone, but I heard hin}
malee another statement that might
he considered fully as startling,' said
-~~a. New York merchant at luncheon
the other day. "Several years ago
my wife w*e a wreck from nervous
. iffyspepsia Several prominent phy
sicians here had treated her without
success and finally I was advised to
take her to Baltimore to see Dr.
"He inquired carefully about her
habits and particularly about her
diet. We described it without going
into details, but this did not satisfy
the great physician.
"Tell me what you have for dinner,
desorille the nature of the courses,
their number and so on," he insisted.
"Weil, usually we start with some
good nourishing soup," I began.
"'Stop right there,' interrupted Dr.
Osier. 'Soup must go. There is a
popular fallacy that soup is nourish
ing. That is a mistake. It is one of the
most harmful things one can eat.
It is worse than lobster. Of course,
there are times when a simple beef
or mutton broth is not to be condem
ned. But as a rule soup is positively
dangerous. It dilutes the gastric
juices and it ferments too rapidly
to permit it to be easily digested.
It is the greatest cause of dyspepsia
and nervous disorders. Vegetable
soup should he thrown into the gar
bage pall, where it belongs, instead
of being p'oured into a delicate
stomach. Half the nervous wrecks
among society folks who live well are
r.aused by eating soup.'
"Dr. Osl?r gave some other advice,
.which was followed by my wife in
.addition to giving up soup. Soup is
.' never served at our table and .has not
been for four years. My wife is well
and strong to-day, and she can eat
anything on th? menu except soup."

1 Why They Buried Her.
An incident that happened long
enough ago to make its telling harm- ,
less began with the meeting of two
old Cincinnatians on the street. Lock
ing arms, so runs the tale, they strol
led slowly along, discussing various
"topics. Personal ones were touched
. upon at last, and after exchanging
family solicitudes for several mo
ments, the Judge asked the Major:
"And dear, old Mrs.-. your aunt?
'She must be rather feeble now. Tell
me, how is she?'"
"Buried her yesterday," said the
"Burled her? Dear me, dear mer

Dining on Horseflesh.
That stanch vegetarian, Bernard
Shaw, saj's the Springfield Republi
can, should find a congenial theme for
satire In the opening exercises of the
new society .for the protection of
horses founded in Berlin.
The president, Major General Zo
bel, explained In his address that the
purpose of the society is to persuade
people to be kind to their old horses
-not to work them, but to fatten
them up and slaughter them for the
table! To this end the society, fol
lowing the example of a similar or
ganization in Paris, intends to give a
supper at which the different ways
in which horseflesh can be served will
be shown. At Potsdam the number
of horses slaughtered has increased
25 per cent, since last year, aud the
number of swine slaughtered has fal
len off l'? per cent.

something beyond the usual when mo

HAIL THREE FEET DEEP.
Terrifiice Storm Sweeps Over Por

Thousands of Dollars Worth of
Damage to Crops.
Durham, Special.-From parties
who were in the city today particu-.
iars of a hail storm that did great
damage in thc northern part of Or
ange couuty Tuesday night were
learned. The loss was something
fearful, large planters losing every
thing. The hail b.-il was from three
quarters to amile in width. The
storm did uot last more than 15 or
20 minutes. In that length of time
thousands .of dollars worth of prop
erty was destroyed. "In some
places,*' said Mr. S. T. Pittard, who
lost his entire crop of tobacco, oats,
cotton and corn, "the icc was piled
three feet deep yesterday morning.
This was in ditches, or places where
it was rifted.'" Continuing, he said
that yesterday morning one of his
ueighbors gathered a guano sack full
of the hail stones and carried them
to Hillsboro, a distance of ll miles.
"When bc reached Hillsboro,'" said
my informant, "the stones were as
large as guinea eggs. This gives you
some idea of the size of the stones
when they fell, these bciug gathered
after lying on the ground all night.''
Telling of some of the losers, Mr.
Pittard said that he lost his entire
crop of tobacco, 90,000 hills; all his
corn, oats and cotton. Fate Cooper
lost from 80,000 to 90,000 hills of

colton and oats, in addition to the
large loss on the tobacco crop.
Thc first hail belt was ? miles
norlh of Hillsboro, near Carr's post

than a half mile wide. At Caldwell,
a distance of niue or ten miles, the
loss was fearful. The average width
of thc belt was probably'from three
quarters to one mile. Thc storm

This year some of those who lost

Mr. Pittard said that he did not
know what the farmers in this belt

Chorus Girls Ways.
The stage and Its environments as
a factor upon the morals and deport-,
ment of the girls who compose the
chorus has been argued pro and con
for ages, but no solution is fully ac
Many persons depict the life of the
chorus girl as one of danger, studded
with innumerable pitfalls. An equal
number of opinions uphold stage life
by saying there are good and bad
people in every employment, and that
stage girls are usually deserving of
greater consideration than is accord
Une thing In which nearly all chor
us girls are alike is indifference to
their word. These girls care little for
their promises. To the average chor
us girl a signed contract is like a
piece of waste paper, unless she real
ly wants the engagement. In that
case she will hold on to the contract
like 'grim death.
Managers are busy men, but they
have been known to resort to law to
compel the heedless young lady . tc
respect the paper she has signed.
The Summer Girls' Dress.
The 1906 Summer girls will be
frocked in frills and furbelows de
lightfully feminine, writes Helen
Berkely-Loyd in The Delineator for
July. From parasol to boot tip,
curves, dainty touches, and artistic
color effects will distinguish every
thing they wear. Their elders, too,
make a generous use of color. They
are permitting it to appear in their
tweed trotteurs and motor coats, and
their afternoon and dinner gowns of
light, silken fabrics, are as often of
the new mauve-blue- and the warm
American Beauty shades a soft white
or the always charming pastel- tints.
The. semi-tailored gowns, man
made though they are, emphasize
feminine curves in a marked degree,
and show the most graceful effects.
The bolero is seen on a great many
of these gowns, the shorter ones hav
ing a ceinture attached that is en
The sleeves as a rule, are puffs to
the elbow, or half-way to the wrist.
They are finished with a velvet-inlaid
cuff that flares considerably.
Among thc little accessories that
the Summer girl is wearing, are
bracelets of black velvet held with
jeweled buckles, and wisps of tulle
twisted about the upper arm and the
wrist, tied in fluffy bows. Arm or
glove garters of satitr ribbon, shirred
over elastic and edged with frills of
lace and, ribbon are quite new, and
as practical as they are ornamental.
IT PAYS TO CAPONIZE.
A gain of four pounds per head in
weight and of ten cents per pound
in price ls quite worth while when you
remember that it can be done on about
the same amount of feed. It is wi?e
to capon'ze every cockerel not wanted
for breeding. There is very little pain
caused by the operation if done skil
fully and at the right time-less pain
than is often endured by cockerels in
their fights with one another. But the
writer will never forget the cold chills
it caused him to witness the bungling
attempts of some of the pupils at a
poultry school. It is rank cruelty to
praclice such an operation without
first working on dead birds.
