Why shiver before an open fire-place when so much comfort can .
be had from HEATERS-especially Heaters scientifically made.
polw Come and see us for these. Ask us to show you MAGIC HEAT
ERS; let us show you one of them in operation that you may judge ;
PNo-what an up-to-date heating device it is.
Pw h M -AGIC HEATERS combine the excellent qualities of the com
mon sheet iron air-tight heaters with the strength and safety of the
old-fashioned box stove. They consume one-half the amount-of wood
required in a fire-place and give double the comfort. Fill them with -
wood before retiring and close up the draft; in the morning open the
o draft and in a few moments you have a nice, bright fire started. If
you will then replenish the wood and regulate the draft you will have
a nice fire all morning without further trouble. They are strongly
made of the best material and are an ornament to any parlor or sit
ting room. They have no nickel work on them to get rusty and be
an eyesore to the housekeeper.

MASTER OF THE VESSEL.
A story of Farragut In Cormand
When but Twelve Years of Age.
The story of a boy of twelve years
acting as commander of a ship seems
rather wonderful, yet Farragut was
but twelve years and four days old
when he was put in command of the
Barclay, a prize ship taken by Captain
Porter. In consideration of his tender
years. says the author of "Twenty-six
liistoric Ships." the former English
master of the vessel was sent in her
for the possible benefit the yolng prize
inaster might find in his advice. Far
ragut tells the story of the queer di
vision of authority in his journal as
"I considered that the day of trial
had arrived, for I was a little afraid of
the old fellow, as every one else was.
But the time had come for me at least
to play the man. So I mustered up
courage and informed the captain that
I desired the main topsail filled away
in order that we might close up with
the Essex Junior. He replied that lie
would shoot any man who dared to
touch a repe without his orders. He
would go his own course and had no
idea of trusting-himself with 'a blasted
nutshell,' and then he went below for
"I called my right hand man of the
crew and told him of my situation. I
also informed him that I wanted the
main topsail filled. He answered with
a clear 'Aye, aye, sir,' in a manner that
was not to be misunderstood, and my
confidence was perfectly restored..
"From that moment I became master
of the vessel and immediately gave all
necessary orders for making sail, no
tifying the captain not to come on with
his pistols unless he wished to go over
board. for I really would have had
very little trouble in having such an
A Paradox Explained.
Why does not a man weigh a pound
more immediately after eating a pound
weight of food? A little reflection will
readily explain this apparent mystery.
During the process of mastication, de
glutition, etc., certain muscles are
brought into active play, and the exer
cise of any muscle necessitates a tem
porary waste of its tissues, and a cer
tain amount of carbon is eliminated
and passed ofi during the course of the
meal. This loss, however, is trifling as
compared with that due to respiration
and perspiration. both of which are
increased during the various operations
of making a meal.
The length of time one may take to
consume a pound of food makes but
little difference to those losses, for if it
is eaten leisurely there is but slight
increase of respiration or perspiration,
whereas if it is hurried through both
are abnormally accelerated. Hence by
the time the pound is eaten the con
sumer has lost appreciably In moisture
and carbonic acid.
He Was His Own Grandfather.
Of all genealogical curios!' i s the one
set forth below is probably the oddest
a singular piece of reasoning to prove
that a manmnay be his own grandfather!
Here it is: There was a widow (Anne)
and her daughter (Jane) and a man
(George) and his son (Henry). This
widow married the son, and the daugh
ter marriled the father. The widow was
therefore mother (in law) to her hus
band's father and grandmother to her
own husband. By this husband she
had a son (David), to whom she was, of
course, great-grandmother. Now, the
son of a great-granidmother must be
grandfather or graniduncle to th'e per
son to whom his mother was or is
great-grandmother, but in this instance
Anne was great-grandmother to him
(David); therefore D~avid could not be
other than his own grandfather.
Prodigality of Life In Ancient Egypt.
The reckless prodigality with which
in ancient Egypt the upper classes
squandered away the labor and lives
of the people is perfectly startling. In
this respect, as the monuments yet re
maining abundantly prove, they ~stand
alone and without a rival. We may
form some idea of the almost incred
ible waste when we hear that 2,000
men were occupied for three years in
carring a single stone from Elephan
tine to Sais, that the canail of the Red
sea alone cost the lives of 120,000
Egyptians and that to build one of the
pyramids required the labor of 360,000
men for twenty years.
A Remarkable River In Spain.
There is in Spain a river called the
Tinto, which has very extraordinary
qualities. Its waters, which are as
yellow as a topaz, harden the sand and
petrify It In a most surprising manner.
If a stone falls into the river and rests
upon another they both become per
fectly united and conglutinated in a
year. It withers all the pnts on its
banks as well as the roots of trees,
which It dyes of the same hue as Its
waters. No fish live in its stream.
She Guessed Right.

the willing believer eagerly.

"Oh, how lovely!" the fair witness
interrupted. '"Shall I really be allowed
to talk all the afternoon if I want to?"

A FAMILY QUARREL.
rtS Droll Ending After the Poet
Shelley Had Interfered.
In his "Rossdtti Papers" William
Rossetti says that when Shelley was
staying in the villa of the Gisbornes
a most droll incident occurred. It ap
pears that his servants, Giuseppe and
Annunziata, who were man and wife,
quarreled, and Shelley, hearing Giu
seppe abusing his wife very savagely
and also ill using her, rushed upon him
with a pistol, shouting: --I'll shoot you!
I'll shoot you!" The startled fellow
ran for his very life, Shelley after
him, till the servant, coming to a shrub
bery of laurels, managed to slip under
them, Shelley, in his eagerness, darting
past him. The servant in a few min
utes found it possible to dodge back
into the house unperceived. Shelley,
seeing him no more, at last went back
to the house, where, to his unutterable
surprise, he found Giuseppe and An
nunziata sitting together in the most
amicable manner, addressing each oth
er as "caro" and "carissima." "But,
were you not quarreling even now?"
exclaimed the perplexed poet. "Quar
reling?" gasped Giuseppe in amaze
ment. "No, signor, we never quarrel
ed." "But I have been running after
you in order to shoot you." "No, si
gnor, you never ran after me, for I have
been sitting here for the last hour or
more. You must have fancied all this."
And Giuseppe and Annunziata, who
had both been considerably frightened,
continuing to assure him that the.b.ard
had no quarrel, and Mary Shelley,
whom they had let into the secret, say
ing the same, Shelley was at last utter
ly mystified and inclined himself to be
lieve that he must have fancied it.
Energy is a fine thing, but, like
steam, it needs a little restraint and
careful guiding. If the safety valve
doesn't work there's likely to be a
breakdown or a blow up now and then.
The nervousy, fidgety woman is a
dreadful bore. She ruffles up the at
mosphere and makes everybody wish
she would take a vacation and rest up
like sixty. Some of those people who
fly around the fastest do the least
work, and the proper thing to acquire
Is balance. Work as hard as you want
to, but let up when the moment for
letting up arrives. There is a limit to
human endurance, and when you go
beyond the limit you never get back
into the valve of strong endurance and
fine vitality. It is the man or the wo
man who knows Low to work and how
to rest who gets things done all fine
and shipshape and without tearing the
roof off its feet. These remarks may
be blunt, like a chisel, but they're as
true as the fact that the Lord made lit
tle apples.-Chicago Record-Herald.
Odd Street Names.
In Clerkenwell, England, there is a
street called Pickled Egg walk. It
takes its name from Pickled Egg tav
ern, which formerly stood there and
made a speciaty of serving pickled
eggs. An interesting London thorough
fare is Hanging Sword alley, which
is mentioned- in Dickens' "Tale of Two
Cities." London has also Pickleher
ring street. In Leicester is a street
called the Holy Bones and,. another
called Gallows Tree Gate. Hull has
a street with the extraordinary name,
the Land of Green Ginger. Corydon
has a street named Pump Pail, and
there some years ago lived Peter Pottle,
a dealer in furniture. The most daring
of farce writers might well have hesi
tated to invent a combination of name
and address so improbable as that
which really belonged to Peter Potte
of Pump Pail.
The Labor of a Watch.
The little balance wheel of a watch
vibrates five times per second. Imag
ine that this wheel, instead of swing
ing back and forth like a pendulum,
should roll on continuously over a given
surface. Its circumference in a gentle
man's watch' of ordinary size Is two
and a quarter inches, and it makes a
sweep in each direction of about three
fourths of its circumference. In other
words, it would traverse in one second
a distance measuring about eight and
a half inches. According to this com
putation, the balance wheel of a watch
would travel' in a year over a distance
of 3,677 miles in round nuimbers, and
it would take the little wheel just six
years eight months to circumvolve the
globe by way of the equator.

Catarrh of the
For many years it has been supposed that
Catarrh of the Stomach caused indigestion
and dyspepsia, but the truth is exactly the
opposite. Indigestion causes catarrh. Re
peated attacks of indigestion inflames the
mucous membranes lining the stomach and
exposes the nerves of the stomach, thus caus
ing the glands to secrete mucin instead of
the juices of natural digestion. This is
called Catarrh of the Stomach.
