Circular skirts, and plaited, are
among the new ones shown In the

among these, and 'the panels they form

effects in fancy silk braids.
Velvet buttons are worn on the new

Plain tight-fitting three-quarter coats
are worn with the plaited skirts in

more the effect of cords than tucks.

Not Worth His Salt
"When we say a man Is not worth his
salt," said a philologist, "we use an In
teresting classic form of Bpeech. We go
all the way back, in fact, to the time of
the ancient Romans.
"The Roman workers in the salt mines
were paid in salt. The salt that they got
in return for their labor was called their
salnrlum (sal-salt), cr salt allowance.
"The word salarlum, meaning Bait
money, or allowance for Ealt, latei.on
was applied to the fees, or tips, men got
for odd jobs, 'For patching my toga,
the noblo said, 'I will give that fellow a
slight salarium— a bit of money to buy
"Finally 'salarlum' came to mean
wages, salary, what it does today. A
salary is essentially salt money, and
when we say a man is not worth his salt
we mean he is not worth paying- wages

JUSTICE TO A STATISTICIAN
What Becomes of All the Watches
Discovered at Last
"Only a few years ago," said Mr.
Fatherly, "I read some statistics about
the sale of watches that seemed to me
at that time to be fabulous. The num
ber of watches sold annually was so
and-so many, while the entire popu
lation of the country, men, women and
children, were so many, a much smaller
number. , ".'.•■•
"How could those watch statistics
be right? Did every man, woman and
child in the land carry a watch, carry
two or three watches, as they would
have had to do to make the watch
figures come out anywhere near right?
Pooh! The figures were foolish.
"But now I know differently, now that
I am blessed with a youthful son.
"One of my young son's earliest ambi
tions was to own a watch, and of course
that wish was gratified, and unless you
have a young son yourself you may
doubt my figures as to the number of
watches that we have since supplied
to him as much as I doubted the figures
in the general watch statistics.
"The number of watches that the kid
uses up is something astonishing. He
drops his watch in the street and in
the house, and so Jars Us internal
organization into chaos.
"He winds it till he breaks some
thing, he regulates It till It's beyond
regulation, he sets It seven times a day
—he Is always tinkering with It, and
under such handling watcnes with him
don't last long.
"We got them repaired at first, but
even with constant repairs the life of a
watch In his hands is short, and then
we have to buy him a new one, for he
must have a watch. And how many
watches we buy him in the course of a
year I wouldn't dare to tell you.
"To be sure, we don't buy him expen
sive watches, and in that fact lies the
key to my present knowledge of the
accuracy of the watch flfrurer's statis
tics, which once I doubted. He didn't
cay that we used up In a year so many
squintilllon million billion trillion stem
winding, full-Jeweled, stop-watch, spllt
necond chronometer repeaters; no — he
Just said watches. And that was where
I was misled.
"I hadn't any young sons then, and
my idea of a watch at that time was
of a pretty good sort of watch, such as
people ordinarily carried, and I knew
that there couldn't be any such number
as he said we used. But now I know
that he meant all watches, including
the sort carried by small sons, and
now I know that his statistics. Instead
of being ridiculously exaggerated, werei
really far within the truth, and made
so by him with deliberate intent. I can
Imagine that appalled by the figures he
got from various sources he said to
" 'What's the use? Nobody would be
lieve these figures if I put them out,
and I'll scale 'em to somewhat within
the bounds of reason and understand
"And that Is what he undoubtedly
did. As has often been done before and
since. In many causes, he sacrificed
truth on the temporary altar of popular
error and made his estimate most con
"But I am glad to be able, even at
this late day, to do that watch sta
tistician justice, which I am now able
to do because now I have at least a
glimmering of the enormous total con
sumption of pocket timepieces. I don't
pretend to be able to solve the ancient
problem of what becomes of all the pins,
but I have got at least some sort of idea
of what becomes of the watches."
HUNTER BHOT IN LEG
William Buffln of 144 West Twelfth
street was shot in the leg by Harry
Wyman at Wheeler Springs yesterday,
according to reports received by Capt.
Bradlsh of the detective department.
According to the information received
the men were hunting and Wyman's
gun waa accidentally discharged. The
full charge of the gun entered Buffln's
"In the old days," says a well known
player, "when I was a member of a
stock company in Chicago, we used
nightly to gather in a bohemian resort
near the theater. One night, Just after
the show, a number of us were seated
at a table near the entrance, when there
entered to us a lean and hungry look-
Ing chap, very thinly and shabbily clad.
Noticing his anxious gaze, one of the
party Immediately divined his purpose,
and anticipating the stranger said:
" 'Sorry, old fellow, but as we our
selves are playing in rather hard luck
we have no money to give you for a
meal and a night's lodging. We're
nearly broke ourselves."
"At this the stranger smiled pleasant
ly. 'Permit me, gentlemen, to correct
a misapprehension,' said he. 'I was not
going to ask you for money; I merely
wanted to know whether one of you
would not lend me a sandbag so that I
might go out and make a little.' "—
THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL.
Few People Know How Uieful It It in
Preserving Health and Beauty. -
Nearly everybody knows that char-
coal la the safest and most efficient
disinfectant and purifier In nature, but
few realize its value when taken into
the human system has the same cleans-
Charcoal is a remedy that the more
you take of It the better; It Is not a
drug at all, but simply absorbs the
gases and Impurities always present in
the stomach and intestines and carries
them out of the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath after
smoking, drinking or after eating
onions and other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and im-
proves the complexion, it whitens the
teeth and further acts as a natural and
eminently safe cathartic.
It absorbs the injurious gases which
collect in the stomach and bowels; it
disinfects the mouth and throat from
the poison of catarrh.
All druggists sell charcoal In one
form or another, but probably the best
charcoal and the most for the money
Is in Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges; they
are composed of the finest powdered
Willow charcoal and other harmless
antiseptics in tablet form or rather in
the form of large, pleasant tasting
lozenges, the charcoal being mixed
The daily use of these lozenges -will
soon tell In a much improved con-
dition of the general health, better
complexion, sweeter breath and purer
blood, and the beauty of It Is that no
possible harm can result from their
continued use, but on the contrary,
A Buffalo physician, In speaking of
the benefits of charcoal, says: "I ad-
vise Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges to all
patients suffering from gas in stomach
and bowels, and to clear the com-
plexion and purify the breath, mouth
and throat; I also believe the liver Is
greatly benefited by the daily use of
them; they cost but twenty- cents
a box at drug stores, and although In
some sense a patent preparation, yet
I believe I get more and better char-
coal In Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges
than in any of the ordinary charcoal
