his little pile is badly worn before he

The beaver is really a sort of porta

kind of wood that comes his way, says
a writer. I once measured a white
birch tree twenty-two inches through

the tree, and when it comes down the
whole family fall to and have a regu

A big beaver will bring down a fai:
sized sapling-say three inches through
-in about two minutes and a large
tree in about an hour. The ability of
a beaver to remain under water for a
long time is not really so tough a prob
lem as it looks. When the lake or
pond is frozen over, a beaver will come
to the under surface of the ice and ex
pel his breath so that it will form a
wide, flat bubble. The air, coming in
contact with the ice and water, is puri
fied, and the beaver breathes It again.
This operation he can repeat several
times. The otter and muskrat do the

'here Are Five Ways, so You Will
Hardly Get It Wrong.
"The terrapin enjioys one distinction
that Is rather unique," said a man who
aeeps his eye skinned for curious
things, '"and it is found precisely in
the fact that there are more ways to
spell the name of this creature of the
water than any other I have any
.nowledge of. It is almost impossible
to spell it incorrectly, and this is some
thing you can say about very few
words In the English language. By
consulting the dictionary we will fin~d
that there are five ways of spelling the
word, and they are these: Terrapina,
terapin, terrapen, terrapene, turapena.
Th preference is given to the first way
of spelling the word-that Is, terrapin
but If a man should happen to write it
In some other way he would .not be
entirely wrong. There is not much
excuse for spelling this word Incorrect
ly. Why, a fellow can shut his eyes

Spanish dances have a certain resem
blance to the dances of the east In
ur country one's Idea of a dance is
somehilng in which the movement Is
ue to the legs. In Japan and In Egypt
the legs have very little to do with the
lance. The exquisite rhythms of Jap
nese dances are produced by the sub
te gesture of hands, the manipulation
f scarfs, the delicate undulations of
the body. In Arab dances and In the
lanse du ventre the legs are more near
fy motionless. The legs are only used
to assist In producing the extraordi
nary movements of the stomach and
the hips In which so much of the dance
It is a dance in which the body sets
tself to Its own rhythm. Spanish
daning, which no doubt derives Its
eastern color from the Moors, Is al
most equally a dance of the whole
body, and Its particular characteristic
-the action of the hips-is due to a
physical peculiarity of the Spaniards,
whose spines have a special and unique
curve of their own.

GHOSTS THAT HAUNT THE UNITED
)r A Story of Spdeters That Stalk at
. ight When the Halls of Legisla.
tion Are Gloomy and Deserted, as
Told by One of the Old Guards.
Like most repositories of good stories,
the ancient man who has spent dec
- ades as a guard in the capitol in Wash
Z5 ington did not yield up the fullness of
15 his narratory riches without a struggle.
58 '"It's unpleasant to be made a' mock
20 of by the skeptical," he protested. "'Do
50 you believe in ghosts, young man?"
G5 "If answering in the affirmative be
00 gets-an interesting tale, I do," returned
43 the writer.
98 "Well; starting on the premise that
0 you do believe to some extent In the
75 supernatural, I will admit you to my
18 confidence," resumed the old guard,
50 and here goes for the authentic yarn
50 of the spooks that haunt the nation's
60 "In the long, monotonous watches of
the night innumerable are the spooks,
j hobgoblins and the eerie, vapory
io things which glide from the shadowy
20 nooks* and crannies of the intangible
20 nowhere to people the capitol's vast
20 stretches of darkness. Of course you
20 know of the extraordinary acoustic
00 freaks which obtain in many parts of
43 the great building-how a whisper, a
50 breathed word at one particular point
00 Is audible at another scores of feet dis
33 tant? Yes. Now, at night these acous
58 tic spirits simply go mad. Where they
00 by day were pygmies they expand into
90 giants, and a whistle, a sudden sound,
0 a footfall, resolves itself into a pan
70 "Weird, terrifying noises beat upon
00 the eardrums of the watchmen as they
8 pursue their lonely patrols through the
70 seeming miles of corridors, and then
50 the spooks, the shades of the nation's
65 great, the astral bodies of those that
00 toiled in obscurity for the nation's good,
25 dodge the watchmen's step, some
50 grand and awful in their speechless
00 dignity, some creeping humbly about
5 in apologetic silence, some laughing,
50 some sobbing, but all of them horrible
00 The old man paused to muse.
13 "Do you know," he said, breaking
00 into his own reverie explosively, "Feb.
77 23 Is a date dreaded by many of the
97 capitol night guards? It was on this
50 day, in 1848, that John Quincy Adams
20 died in the chamber of the house of
00 representatives, now Statuary hall,
00 where the exact spot is marked by a
00 brass tablet. Promptly at midnight
40 on every anniversary of his death the
00 shade of John Quincy Adams appears
50 in a sort of phosphorescent glow over
60 this brass tablet. Oh,. dozens of guards
71 have seen it from time to lime as well
8 as I, and I can refer you to many of
60 them for affirmation of my assertions.
10 "Once over the spot the shade begins
90 to gesticulate, after the manner of a
50 member addressing the house. Then,
70 all of a sudden, the fine face becomes
50 distorted and agonized, the gracefully
33 waving arms fail geonvulsively, and
00 down sinks the shade with all the
movements of an expiring man. Then
5the phosphorescent glow fades away,
05 and the ethereal effgy dissolves.
00. "But, although lost sight of, its pres
00 ence is still made known by the 'eump,
37 fop, clump, flop,' of InvIsible foot
83 falls departing down one of the long
00 vacant corridors.
50 "Stranger than this Is the ghost of
0the entire congress of 1848, which ap
50 pears in vigorous if spooky session ev
ery once In awhile in Statuary hall, the
old hall of representatives, as I have
previously remarked. Inaudible, but
spirited, are the debates; energetic to
the bursting point of vehemence are
-the silent political dissensions. Pro
voked by a doubting Thomas, a mem
ber of the capitol night watch several
de years ago made affidavit that he had
til seen this ghostly congress in session.
n, Yes, he was a sober man and true.
n- "The shade of General John A. Lo
gan is a frequent visitor at the capitol.
e- Almost every alternate night at half
at past 12 o'clock this ghost materializes
d, at the door of the room occupied by
the senate committee on military and
er, militia. Silently the door swings open,
and out steps the looming and lumi
ly nous presence, to stalk in stately dig
nity away into the swallowing gloom.
ed This is a favorite phantom with the
guards. Its conduct is exemplary.
ed "Then there Is the shade of Vice
rd President Wilson, who died in his room
an n the senate end of the -capitol, you
will recall. Its peregrinations are few
and desultory. When It does codfe,
there is always an expression of con
tir cern and self absorption In the ghostly
ne face. The movements of'the vapory
so body are restless and hurried.

OLD PEOPLE i
Do not always receive the sympathy and attention which
they deserve. Their ailments. are regarded as purely
imaginary, or natural and unavoidable at their time of
life. Disease and infirmity should not always be associ
ated with old age. The eye of the gray haired grandsire
may be as bright and the complexion as fair as anyo
his younger and more vigorous companions.
' Good Blood Is the seoet ofhealthy old age, for it regulates,
and controls every part of the body, strengthens the nerves, makes the
muscles elastic and supple, the bones strong and the flesh firm; but wherr
this life fluid is polluted or poisoned and loses its nutritive, health sustain
ing elements, then there is a rapid decline of the vital powers, resulting'
in premature old age and disease. Any derangement of therblood quickly
shows itself in an ulcer, sore, wart, tumor or some other troublesome...
growth upon the body, and rheumatic and neuralgic pains become almost
constant, accompanied with poor digestion and cold extremities.
S. S. S. being purely vegetable, is the safest and
best blood purifier for old people. It does not shock
or hurt the system like the strong nueral remedies,
but gently and thoroughly cleanses the-blooda
stimulates the debilitated organs, when allb
ailments disappear. S. S. S. is just such a tonic as old people needt .
improve a digestion and tone up the Stomach. If there is anyheredi
tary taint, or the remains of some disease contracted in early life, S. S. S.
will search it out and remove every vestige of it from the system.
