And now comes Russia, beaten and
battered and on the run, with a word
of hope and encouragement. What
ever her critics may charge against
her, let it*be known that Riisia as
nation possesses optimism to a de
-ee that is positively refreshing in
ese days where the pessemist holds
forth in almost unchecked riotings.
While official cables come burdened
with details and descriptions of Jap
anese victories, from darkest Russia
-darker than usual because of her
reverses-is heard the hopeful voice
of the optimist who dries his tears to
announce that better days are com
ing. Russia tells her weeping sub
jects that all has not been lost. In
fact, says the War Office, its not half
as bad as it could have been! Cheer
up, for Stakelburg, with his 25,ooo, has
escaped; Kuropatkin and his vast
army have an open road to Mukden;
the Japanese are simply wearing
themselves out. Such optimism in
.-the *face of the pathetic scenes of
bloody defeat is unusual even in ra
tions. But it may be the best way
Larkins Johnson and Andrew Bur
ton, both colored, were hanged in
Alabama last week under due process
of the law. Lynching was imminent
in both cases and was prevented only
by quick and careful work on the
part )f the authorities.
An Old Woman's Cure for Dyspepsia
"The most remarkable thing that
has ever occurred to me in my earth
!y career." said Eugene McKelsey,
"occurred some years ago when I was
afflicted with dyspepsia. I. had a bad
case, I assure you. Oh, I was all
-broke up. Food was disgusting. I
had no appetite. and I just walked
around looking for some place to lay
down and die. Some time passed, and
I grew worse. I saw myself a physi-'
cal wreck, and try as I might I sim
ply couldn't revive appetite nor am
bition. Finally I ran into an old wo
man, a kind of witch I guess-old
women are always witches when they
dress in faded garments and predict
to you-who said that I would get
-well if I should go to a certain farm
and three times a day 'cast an ear of
-corn to a white pig and then listen to
it -to eat. ' I do not believe in such
rites; but, dear me, I was so sick that
I was willing' to try anything.
"So I bought a white pig, secured
a pen for it within the mentioned farm
limits, and daily made three journeys
with. an ear .of corn that I threw in
and then watched the pig eat. Well,
do you know the sound of that pig
crunching and sucking those, corn
grains made ine hungry. Oh. I enjoy
ed the sensation' so n'uch It made
me ravenous. When..I returned from
my walk I wanted to eat. So I con
tinued visiting the white pig and eat
ing three good, meals a day until I
was myself again and as healthy as
I amn now. I don't care to under
*'tand the whyness of it now. I am
nly too 'glad to be well."-St. Louis
The possible customer stopped be
fore another painting. ' "If you will
allow me to criticise," he said "you
~have impart'ed too much of a haze
to your sea and sky and land in this
picture. Even the air itself seems
to look blue."
"That is a view from the veranda
of a hotel at a 'New Jersey summer
resort," explained the artist. "The
boarders are supposed to be swear

The September Designer.
No feminine taste has been disre
garded in The Designer for Septem
ber. For the lover of out-of-doors
there is a delightful account of "Two
Girl Camera Gunners at Cape Cod;"
for the woman who has a romantic
streak in her nature is given a charm
ing love story. "The Governor's
Group D'Etat;" for one fond of pic
tures aie two pages of most interest
ing reproductions from life of "The
Equipages of the World," not to
speak of the many artistic illustrations
accompanying nearly every article
presented this month. "School Chil
dren of Many Lands," by Laura B.
Starr, presents boys and girls from
all manner of out-of-the-way places,
each bent on securing an education,
and a gem for amateur talent is the
shadow pantomime "Arlette and Ora
belle." by Bertha E. Bush. "Mottoes
for Interior Decoration." by Mary
Kilsyth, as full suggestions to the
home-maker, and mothers will be
glad of the hints for their little folks'
arraying given in "Whien the School
Bell Rings," and for the matter sup
pled for the amusement and instruc
.ion of the very tiny tots in "The
Home Kinderga-ten." There is a
second lesson on that most n^" '*
decoration "Harhanger Embroidery,"
two pages full of "Pretty Things for
the Lace Maker," most explicit direc
tions for making "Bermuda Fagot
ing." and suggestions for "Modern
Use for Old-Time Stitches." "Points
on Dressmaking" tells how Ao make
the new jacket with waistcoat, and
he "Millinery Lesson" deals with a
stylish bonnet for an elderly woman.
Every woman, young or old, who has
to do with housekeeping, will be in
terested.in the opening article of "The
Evolution of Green Help Into Com
petent Servants." by Eleanor Mar
chant, and will also be glad to find
ample instalments of her favorite de
partments. "Helps Along the WVay,"
and "The Kitchen Kingdom." The
three articles which deal solely with
fashions: "Ends and Fancies,"
"Fashions and Fabrics" and "Fashion
Notes for Men," are brimful of ad
vance information for the autumn
season, and should be read by every
one who strives to keep up wth the
constantly changing modes.

Lockjaw and the Fourth.
Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The public is again indebted to t
Journal of the American Medical A
sociation, which for two years h
collected statistics of Fourth of Ju
accidents. The returns are now coi
plete. All cases of lockjaw superi
duced by wounds suffered while ha
dling toy pistols and the like have I
this time developed and run thi
course. This year 105 cases of tetan
were reported, in 91 of which dea
resulted. in 74 cases the injuries we
due to blank cartridges. This reco
is gratifying when compared wi
that of last year, when 415 lockjC
cases were reported, all but sev
proving fatal. There is little difft
ence, however, between the grand t
tals of accidents for 1903 and 1904
4,449 and 4,169, respectively.
The journal quoted finds that loc
jaw due to other than Fourth of Jtu
injuries is rather more prevalent ti
summer than usual and that la
year's record of Fourth of Ju
deaths was not above the average
recent years. Hence it feels wa
ranted in inferring tnat the gratifyii
improvement shown by this yea1
statistics is due to the campaign
education carried on for a year paE
that it can be attributed to the war
ings giver by the public and profe
sional press, which resulted in mo
stringent legislation and more car
