He Treated the Cat.,
"It isn't often that I get out of pa

point of fact, a hair-trigger temper,

Lazy, But Got There.
A,college president has exceptional
opportunities for studying laziness.
The following story told by Presi
dent Eliot of Harvard should prove
a valuable addition to public know
ledge of the disease. Dr. Eliot said:
"There was once a student at Har
vard who, I think, was absolutely
the laziest student I ever knew. His
family was 4evotedly attached to
him, but he not only would not an
swer their letters, but would not op
en them. Finally his aunt living in
New York, telegraphed me asking
what was the matter with Bob. I re
plied that she had better comeonhere
self and investigate. She called at
the young man's lodgings and found
him still in bed at ix o'clock in the
morning with thirteen unopened tele
grams on the table, and he strenously
objected to getting up even then. I
am informed, nevertheless, 'that that
young man is today one of the most
successful lawyers in his state."
He proposed, conjointly with his
-father and brother to blast the stone
as the most expeditious mode of
gaining access to her arcana, and this
in the open daylight, in order that
any tutelary protection she might be
disposed to extend to her favorite
haunt might, as she was a thing of
darkness and night, be effectually

The Cob Pipe.
Corncob pipes are as old as the
settlement of this country, and the
probabilities are that the pilgrim fa
thers found the Indians sucking hol
lowed out cobs through reed root
stems. There is a historical warrant
for saying that Andrew Jackson
smoked cob pipes and was fond of
them. Tradition has it that after that
famous dinner of sweet potatoes Gen
eral Francis Marion proffered the
British officer who was his guest a
corncob pipe and a moleskin pouch
of sun cured leaf tobacco.
Of course it sounds a lot better to
resign a position than to get fired
from a job, but a man who has had
some experience claims that the ef
fect on one's capacity for paying
board bills is about the same.
Startling But True.
People the world over were horrified
on learning of the burning of a Chicago
theater in which nearly six hnndred
people lost their lives, yet more than
five times this nnmber or over 3,000
people died from pneumonia in Chicago
during the same year, with scarcely a
passing notice. Every one of these
cases of pneumonia resulted from a
cold and could have been prevented by
the timely use of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. A grekt many who had every
reason to fear pneumonia have warded
it off by the prompt use of this remedy.
The followinig is an instance of this
sort: "Too much cannot be said in
favor of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
and especially for colds and influenza.
I know that it cured my daughter,
Laura, of a severe cold, and I believe
saved her life when she was threatened
with pneumonia." W. D. WILCOX.
