Magic Heaters. ~|
Why shiver before an open fire-place when so much comfort can -
0 be had from HEATERS-especially Heaters scientifically made.
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
0- what an up-to-date heatingo device it is.
h MAGIC HEATERS combine the excellent qualities of the co
a mon sheet iron air-tight heaters with the streugth and safety of the
W old-fashioned box stove. They consume one-half the amount of wood
required ira fre-place and give double the comfort. Fill them with
wood before retiring and close up the draft; in the morning open the
e 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
C made of the best material and are an ornament to any parlor or sit
0 ting room. They have no nickel work on them to get rusty and be
an eyesore to the housekeeper. . .

WHY CUBS AR E KILLED.
&'rison Life Often Robs Animals of
Among the huge cages of the carniv
rous animals-the lithe tigress, the
treacherous and soft footed leopardess
and frequently even the generous lion
ess herself-the life of a baby wild anl
mI becomes sometimes a tale of blood
shed and tragedy. Nagged and galled
by prison bars, by narrow confines that
make exercise impossible and by the
excitement of throngs of sightseers,
these naturally nervous and high
strung brutes become overwrought to
a pitch where they satisfy an unnat
ural cannibal appetite on their own
flesh and blood.
Like little bundles of sunshine the
kittens of these ferocious brutes ap
pear, mewing plaintively with tight
shut eyes and groping In the darkness.
Thousands of them have been born be
hind the bars of menagerie cages-no
fault lies with the stork himself-but
most frequently the Irresponsible, crazy
mothers pounce upon and devour them
or else injure them beyond hope of re
covery.' When the watchfulness and a
pitchfork of a keeper succeed in rescu
ing one of these kittens, It Is given in
charge of some big mother dog, which
adopts the stranger and rears him.
Now and then, however, some strong,
healthy, Intelligent member of this
ferocious family ceases to worry and
fret at captivity, and, the maternal in
stinct cropping to the fore, the care of
a litter of cubs becomes a welcome re
lief from the stern monotony of prison
life.-A. W. Rolker in McClure's.
When Beards Were Barred.
In the early part of the last century
a social tyranny prevailed which re
garded the beard as an outrage, says
an English writcr. At one time only
four men in Birmingham had courage
to wear beards. They were followers
of Joanna Southeott. They did it in
Imitation of the apostles and were
jeered at in the streets. George Fred
erick Muntz, one of the first two
Inembers elected In Birmingham, was
the first member who'ventured to wear
a beard In the house of commons, and
he would have been insulted had he
not been a powerful man and carried a
heavy Malacca cane, which he was
known to apply to any one who offered
him a personal affront. The Rev. Ed
mund I. Larken of Burton rectory,
near Lincoln, was the first clergyman
(that was as late as 1852) Fbc appear
ed in the DJ~gi1with a beard, but he
sheta the upper lip as an apology for
the audacity of his chin. George Daw
son was the first.nonconformist preach
er who delivered a sermon In a full
blown mustache and beard, which was
taken in both cases as an unmistak
able sign of latitudinarianism in doc
trine. .In the bank clerk or the work
man it was worse. It was flat insub
ordination not to shave.
The Natives Had Scruples.
There is an amusing-story told about
an old time south sea trader. He had
been in the habit of carrying all sorts
of tinned meats, which the natives
bought with avidity. Each tin was
branded with a colored picture--a cow
for beef, a sheep for mutton and a
fish for sardines.
It happened that the firm who fur
nished the mutton thought It a good
plan to change their labels, that their
goods might be more easily distinguish
ed from others. The mark chosen was
a red dragon.
The natives came with their copra to
trade as usuaL The new tins were
shown them, but they recoiled with her
ror and gave the trader to understand
that they had had some religious in
struction and were not to be deluded
into eating tinned deviL.
The trader was forced to eat his
stock of mutton himself, for not a na
tive could be persuaded to touch the
Exchange of Complimentu.
A village sexton in a Pennsylvania
town, in addition to being gravedigger,
acted as a stonecutter, carpenter and
furniture mover. The local doctor, hav
ing decided to locate In another county,
employed the sexton to vssist in re
moving his household gooiAll went
well until It came to settlement, when
the doctor deducted an old aceount due
by the sexton. He wrote at the same
time objecting to the charge made for
removing his furniture, using these
words: "If this was steady it would
pay much better than gravedigging."
In a few days back came this reply:
"Indeed, I would be glad of a steady
job. Gravedigging is very slack since
you left the county."-Philadelphia

The Best of Three!

Frank Lockwood had secured an ac

that had been established. "Yes," was

THE WORD "BUT."
An Analysis of the American Habit
of Using It.
'The word "but" is sometimes said to
be characteristic of Americans. It
inarks the qualifying spirit. which hesi
tates at extremes and likes to adjust
':he balance of truth. If, for instance,
;tmnebody speaks extravagantly of Em
;.son's genius the critical spirit replies,
"Yes, be was a genius, but" he had
such and such limitations. If, on the
other hand, the limitations are men
tioned first at another time, the same
spirit observes, "Yes, he has those
faults, but he is a genius with it all."
"But" expresses the desire to have
both sides presented. Carried to ex
cess, the habit leads to argumentative
ness and carping. The person who
gets only argument out of conversation
is usually a barren companion. Some
times also It shows an unkind nature,
when the word is used regularly after
hearing others praised. It becomes the
index of envy or of the absence of en
thusiasm. Qualifying-too constantly in
appreciation is like damning with faint
praise, or, rather, praising with an ac
companiment of faint damns. The ar
dent, imaginative temperament makes
less use of qualificatiofi. - Carried along
with a rush, whether of praise or re
proach, it seldom stops to split the
hair of exact truth. "But me no buts,"
It says. The little word is more
leniently treated by judicial and scien
tific minds. If its constant use is typ
ically American. as the English not in
frequently allege, it fits In with the
proverbial idea of Uncle Sam-a sort of
cautious and skeptical New England
farmer, with his "Waal, I don't jest
know," rather than with the American
type which has been developed- since
the west became a greater element in
the compound.-Collier's Weekly.
Mr. L. Golding gives in Chambers'
,ournal some remarkable instances of
narrow escapes and curious fatalities
during the siege of Ladysmith. "While
at lunch In their mess but, which was
protected by sand-bags, certain officers
were engaged In a heated discussion.
In anger, one of the offieers rose from
the table and hastily left the hut.
Hardly had he closed the door behind
him when a shell came hissing through
the air and pitched on the roof of the
hut. Penetrating the Insufficiently pro
tected roof, the shell fell and exploded

killing or mortally wounding every one
of them. The officer who a moment
before had .gone out of the hut did not
receive the slightest injury." A doctor
,who had not stirred from his dugout
for a fortnight came out one Sunday,
a day on which the Doers, as a rule,
did not fire, and was killed by a shell,
and the writer was- "impelled by a
power he could not resist" to dismount

SAGACITY OF MR. SAGE.
ills Reason For Refusing to Advance
Another Loan. .
One day a young man of Russell
Sage's acquaintance-In fact, the grand
son of an old friend of other days-ap
roached him on the subject of a loan
f $10 for two weeks and-got it. He
promised faithfully to return the mon
y at a stated hour, and the promise
was as faithfully kept. Mr. Sage had
very little to say when ho gave up the
en and quite as little when he got it
A week or ten days later the young
man came to see him again and this
time asked him for $100, making all
sorts of representations of what he
would do with it Mr. Sage refused to
ante. The young man was surprised,
ot to say pained.
"Why," he exclaimed, "you know i'll
pay It all right Didn't I-say I'd have
that ten for you on Monday, and wasn't
there to the minute with it?".
Mr. Sage beamed softly on the grand
son of his old friend.
"My boy," he said, with no trace of
2nkindness in his tone, "you disap
pointed me once. and I don't want you
to do it again."
"I beg your pardon, I did not," ar
gued the youth. "I said I - would pay
you back, and I did."
"Yes, my boy." purred Mr. Sage,
"you paid back the ten, and I never
expected you would. Now, if I let you
have a hundred I should expect you to
pay it back, and you wouldn't. One
disappointment at my time of life is
mough, my boy. Good morning."-Col
A Perugian Superstition,'
The girls of the Perugian highlands
believe as firmly as any heroine of The
critus that a person possessing a lock
of another person's hair can will pain,
disease and even death to the owner
of the hair, and thus when maidens
give their betrothed lovers the cus
tomary plaited tress It Is virtually their
life and all their power of suffering
that they give Into those trusted hands.
If the man should prove unfaithful
and disease descend upon the unhappy
oman, she Is not, however, utterly
lost The experienced matrons of her
village have means to transfer the com
plaint to a .tree, to an animal or to
cast it into running water. The patient
must rise in the early dawn, touch a
ertain plant in a certain manner, say
ing, "May thou wither and I flourish
again," or bind her complaint to a tree
in a given fashion, taking care never
to pass again before that tree lest the
disease, recognizing Its former posses
sion, return to her again
Trees In Japan Sacred to the Gods.
Near every temple in Japan are cer
tain trees that are supposed to be pe
culiarly loved by the gods and to be
sacred to them. Any one injuring or
causing to be Injured one of them will
bring down the wrath of the kami or
god whose particular property It is.
If the trees be Injured in the name of
ny one the kami avenges himself on
that person Instead. So when a girl
finds that a swain's love has cooled
and she thinks revenge would .be sweet
she makes a straw manikin and calls it
by his name. If she Is very vengeful
she may also make one of her hated
ria. At 2 o'clock at night (called the
hour of the bull) she rises, and, clad In
a white nightdress only, with high
logs on her feet, her hair hanging
loose and crowned with an Iron tripod,
which three lighted candles are
stuck, she proceeds to the shrine of the
pat:on god of the family.

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 inflpmnes 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.
