It is not necessary for the

All this talk of the Great
Northern company's stock being
watered was emphatically re
futed by James J. Hill upon his
appearance before the house rail
road committee to oppose the
Rockne bill. In the course of his
examination Mr. Uill said:
If anybody says that the Great
Northern has a dollar of watered
stock he bears false witness. It
has issued no bonds, and it never
issued stock that did not repre
sent 100 cents on the dollar."
This should be sufficient, when
taken into consideration with
Mr. Hill's reputation for veracity,
to convince all right-minded
people that the Great Northern
Railway company's stock is not

His Lenten Sacrifices.
My neighbor Brown away last May
Took my lawn mower, saying he
Would like to use it for a day
And it has lust occurred to me
It's keeping lent.
He never brought it back at all
He may have kept it through mistake
But when the summer turned to fall
He came and borrowed my big rake.
That's keeping lent.
A hoe of mine two years ago
He came and borrowed, then he made
A little garden with the hoe
And simply had to get my spade
They're keeping lent.
A clothesline and a prop or two,
A pound of new ten-penny nails,
A hammer that was almost new
He borrowedand his mem'ry fails!
They're keeping lent.
My good snow shovel's at his house,
A book that I would like to get,
A trap he got to catch a mouse
He borrowed, and they're borrowed yet
Still keeping lent.
I can't exactly call to mind
The lots of things I've lent to Brown,
But if you'd ever search his house
You'd find stuff from all over town
That's keeping lent.
Umbrellas, tools and overshoes,
Ash sifters, monkey wrenches, stamps,
A dollar billI won't say whose
Electric bulbs and coal oil lamps
All keeping lent.
Folks tell me I should sacrifice
Some luxuries. They touch a spot
That's tender, with this good advice.
Since almost everything I've got
Is keeping lent.

Sugar In Coffee.
The average amount of sugar used
in coffee is a study which has become
so much of a fascination to a young
man who frequents restaurants pretty
constantly that he has taken to going
to different places for each meal in
order to enlarge the sphere of his ob
servations among different classes of
people, says the Philadelphia Record.
"Poor people, as a rule," he says, "use
more sugar than rich people, and it's
also a pretty constant rule that men
drink sweeter coffee than women and
that old men have the sweetest tooth
of all when it comes to coffee. It is
noticeable, too, that drinkers of after
dinner coffee make it very much sweet
er than that which they take in the
morning. I know a middle aged man
who takes just two lumps to a cup In
the morning, which is below the aver
age, but into the little cup he takes
after dinner he puts six full sized
lumps. This makes a sort of sirup of
the drink, which, I suppose, takes the
place of* after dinner bonbons."
Trained Too Well.
In Baltimore the rule of the trans
portation companies is that children
over the age of five years must pay
full fare, those under that age being
One afternoon not long ago there
were among the passengers on a
Charles street car a woman and her
son, the latter a big boy of apparently
seven years, but who was held in his
mother's lap as if he were a baby.
Presently the lad grew restive.
"Mommer, mommer," he murmured,
The mother, with a premonition of
impending danger, tried to silence the
youngster, but to no avail, for he con
tinued to call upon his "mommer.".
Finally the woman asked, "Well,
what is it, son?"
"Mommer, when do I say I'm only
five?" asked the irrepressible.New
An artist In Paris had much diffi
culty In getting his pupils to make use
of the extremely "impressionistic"
ideas of art. One evening at a large
dinner party he asked an elderly gen
tleman next to him, who was very
shortsighted, how the gentleman at
the foot of the table appeared to him.
"Well," replied the nearsighted one,
"I see a very white spot, which I take
to be his shirt front, and a flesh col
ored spot, which I know to be his
"Ah," exclaimed the artist enthusias
tically, "how I wish my pupils could

Feeling Heat and Cold.
The principal reasons that we feel
objects that are cold when brought in
contact with the skin quicker than
those that are warm is that the skin,
being a very poor conductor of heat,
absorbs heat slowly from an object of
a higher temperature than itself, while
other objects which are cooler and
which in nearly every instance are
better conductors of heat than the skin
absorb heat readily from the skin, and
hence a sensation of cold is felt at
The Marsh Wren's Sagacity.
Birds often have more sagacity than
is generally accredited them. The long
billed marsh wren, which builds a sub
stantial nest of rush leaves, swinging
in the tall rushes of a marsh, invaria
bly makes several nests, but only uses
one. This is undoubtedly for the pur
pose of misleading its enemies. The
nest used Is always the best hidden,
while those not usedthe decoy nests
may be easily found by those who

SAYS RHEUMATISM IS
EASILY CURED NOW
It Is a Symptom of Inactive Kidneys
and Easily Overcome With the
Recent hospital reports show
that the dread disease, rheuma
tism, is steadily increasing
throughout the country. All
known means of relief are being
suggested to save the great
amount of suffering this winter,
especially among those who are
not in a position to pack up and
visit the noted health resorts to
be treated. Recent tests prove
rheumatism not exactly a disease
in itself, but a severe symptom
of kidney trouble, a condition
caused by clogged up pores of
the eliminative tissues in the
kidneys which fail to filter the
poisonous waste matter and uric
acid from the blood, permitting
these substances to remain in
tne veins and decompose, usually
settling about the joints and
muscles, causing the intense
pain, swelling and stiffness of
There are numerous remedies
known which many persons be
lieve will relieve this suffering
salicilate of soda, colchicum,
potash, etc.but these drugs
are terribly hard on the stomach,
often ruining this most im
portant organ, and they fail as
often as they relieve,
A well-known specialist, who
has probably treated more cases,
of rheumatism than anyone else,
and who is also the mosb success
ful, gives the following simple
vegetable treatment, which is
harmless and inexpensive, and
so simple that anybody can mix
it at home.
The ingredients are: Fluid
Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce Compound Kargota, one
ounce Oomponnd Syrup Sarsa
parilla, three ounces. Go to any
good perscription pharmacy and
get these three vegetable in
gredients and mix them by
shaking in a bottle, taking as a
dose a teaspoonful after each
meal and again at bedtime.
There, is^nothing better in the
world for Backache, kidney and
bladder trouble, too. Such
symptoms as frequent and pain
ful urination, soreness, weak
ness, general and nervous de
bility are caused by certain acids
and poisonous waste matter, de
cayed tissue, etc., in the blood,
which the kidneys will clear and
purify after a few doses of this
Street wars in ora^n.
"There are first and second class
street cars." writes a tourist, describ
ing his South American travels, "and
I, with a package in my arms, had tak
en a first, class bond, as a street car is
called in Rio de Janeiro. Scarcely had
done so when the conductor request
ed me to transfer to a second class car
whenever it. irnglit come along, be
cause no one is allowed to carry any
thing greater than a lap satchel first
class. So I humbly descended and had
either to mix with market women and
sweaty laborers or to take a tilbury. A
person without a necktie is no more
allowed first class on the street cars
than was I with my parcel. They are
decidedly particular in Brazil and in
herit many fastidious ways from the
time of the empire, when dress and
manners were the mark separating the
aristocracy from the working classes."
Nothing is more moving to man than
the spectacle of reconciliation. Our
weaknesses are thus indemnified and
are not too costly, being the price we
pay for the hour of forgiveness, and
the archangel, who has never felt an
ger, has reason to envy the man who
subdues it. When thou forgivest, the
man who has pierced thy heart stands
to thee in the relation of the sea worm
that perforates the shell of the mussel,
which straightway closes the wound
with a pearl.Jean Paul Richter.
Ears of Animals.
The ears of tigers, foxes, wolves,
cats and other beasts of prey bend for
ward, while the ears of animals of
flight, such as hares, rabbits, deer, etc.,
bend backward. This is because the
ears of beasts of prey are designed for
the purpose of collecting sounds in the
direction taken by the animal in pur
suit of its .prey. The ears of an ani

Marboeuf was the first to recognize
the genius of Napoleon at the Ecole

battle gained by Bonaparte, and Melas
opened to him the way to Italy. Mor

first martyr to his cause. Maria Louise

M. Murat, du^o of L.is:.i::o, was the
counselor in whom he placed the great
est confidence. His first great battle
was that of Montenotte his last was
that of Mount St. Jean. He gained the
battles of Moscow, Montmirail and
Montereau. Then came the assault of
Montmartre. Milan was the first ene

which he entered. He lost Egypt
through the blunders of Menoa and
