Many Ladies Have Poor Complex?

"Coffee caused dark colored

and these blotches gradually ap

"I formerly had as fine a complex

"When I became convinced that
coffee was the cause of my trouble,
I changed and took to using Postum
Food Coffee, and as I made it well,
according to directions, I liked lt
very much, and have since that time
used lt in place of coffee.
"I am thankful to say I am not
nervous any more, as I was when I
was drinking coffee, and my com

it was years ago. lt is very plain
that coffee caused the trouble." *
Most bad complexions are caused
by some disturbance of the stomach
and coffee Is the greatest disturber
of digestion knowu. Almost any wo
man can have a fair complexion if
she will leave off coffee and use Pos

Postum furnishes certain elements

The jory retired at 4:45 o'clock
and from that time until the verdict
was returned the defendant remained
in the seat he had occupied since the
trial began, and surrounded hy the
members of his immediate family
with the exception of his daughter
Elizabeth, who was not present to
day. At 5:45 o'clock a loud knock
was heard on the door of the jury
room and Judge Barksdale, who had
taken his seat on the hench ordered
the sheriff to preserve order and
cautioned the large crowd that had
remained to not give vent to their
emotions when the verdict was an
nounced. The verdict of acquittal
was read by Foreman B. S. McGraw.

Foreman McCraw, a merchant and

were read to him. Mr. McGfciw said
that when he called for a vote, he
requested all who favored th ac
quittal of the defendant to hold up
their right hand. On the first bal
lot every hand promptly went up.
When asked what the basis of the
verdict was he said "Insanity," and
that he and the other members of
the jury .believed that Judge Loving
was out of his mind at the time he
killed young Estes. The stress, he
said, had bronght on hy the story

that no assault was committed was

AXE IN TREASON TRIALS,
Sharp Edge Turned Toward Prisoner
When Semence is Pronounced.
Every one is aware of the dread
fully significant part the executioner's
axe plays in a trial,for high treason.
The sharp symbol of death ls carried
before the prisoner, with its blunt
side turned toward him so long as he
has not been sentenced, says Macmil
lan's -Magazine, and just before sen
tence is pronounced the sharp edge
is turned his way.
Evelyn, who *was present at the
trial of Lord 'Stafford in 1GS9,- tells
us that the axe was turned edgeways
to the unfortunate nobleman as soon
as it was ascertained that the voting
of his peers went against him-an ef
fective but ghastly piece of stage
management which must have had a
sickening fascination for the unhap
py and probably innocent man. in
those days, now happily gone by, no
one seems to have reflected on the
unnecessary cruelty of harrowing the
feelings of men about to die by such
shocking judicial by-play.
Not 'every prisoner treated this
purely symbolic but otherwise super
fluous and unpleasant ceremony as
contemptuously as did Lord Dalmor
ino. When the three coaches convey
ed the Lords Kilmarnock, Bal merino
and Cromartie from the Tower to be
sentenced/at Westra? ster, on July 28,
1746, a difficulty arose. It was not
laid down by prescription or use in
which coach, If there were more than
one the fatal axe had to be carried.
"Oh, put the - thing in here/'

Yet, notwithstanding his contempt
for this horrid symbol, the undaunted
old man cheerfully suffered death for
his attachment to another symbol,
the White Cockade; but Lord Kil
marnock; in the next coach, was
dreadfully frightened, as he showed
himself to be, by his thorough reali
zation of what the awful axe would
mean to him. He Inquired minutely
into all the details of an execution, ;
wanted the Governor of the Tower to
tell him whether his head would roll
or rebound, and. when on the scaffold
he saw - the executioner dressed in
white, with a white apron, he whls- j

THE ILLUSIVE HAT. "~
"Why ls it," queried ? plaintive
fetqinine, "that a hat which, in its ?
embryo stage, in the milliner's hand,
looks a thing of beauty and a joy
forever, comes home a horrid mons
trosity that ho sofie woman in her
normal mind-would buy?
"The poet who wrote that famous
line, 'Things are not what they seem,'
was sureiy alluding to Easter hats.
. " 'Now I know exactly what you
want-/ reassuringly says the milliner
you always go to. 'Yes, indeed, some
thing drooping and pretty, real blue,
light in weight and no exaggerations.
"The milliner gets out a sweet lit
tle dream of a blue hat, drops a
rose on the brim, and describes how
she will put a little ribbon on the
side. Effect: simple, sweet and en
"Next day you go to try it on. It
isn't finished, but seems likely to be
quite. becoming, after you have sug
gested removing a peaker gable or
two, and razing off some of the front
piazza and an 'ell', behind.
"On the third day it comes home.
Heavens, what a hat! Is it possible
you ever ordered a confection so dia
bolically ludicrous? No, never. You
did not! What that milliner has dette
to it you don't Jjmow. You only Know
that If this ls the natural evolution
of the hat you admired in its embryo
stage, then you and that hat have
nothing in common. You require a
totally different species.
"But you never can tell how any
species ls going to tum out till you
see it in its fully developed state.
Therefore, the best plan, when you
have any dealing with the genus
milliner is to purchase a full-fledged
specimen that has already attained
its normal and complete growth, and
cannot spring any startling surprises
on you when it is too late.''--Phila

THE PEACH TREE BORER.
The peach borer is a wasp-like in
sect, with transparent wings and a
rlchlytornamented body, banded and
striped with gold, and deposits its
eggs about tho base of the trunk of
the tree. The eggs hatch out, the
larvae bore into the sap-wood, and
cause an exudation of gummy matter,
which appear* in masses about the
base 'of the tree. The larvae seem
partly to live in this gummy substance
and partly in the sap-wood of the
tree. Sometimes three or four are
found on the same tree, occasionally
girdling and destroying it, but always
inducing more or less of a diseased
condition and impairing its vigor. Al
together it is a very objectionable
and destructive insect.
