Catarrh of the
For many years it has been supposed that
Catarrh of the Stomach caused indigestion
snd 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. T'us is
called Catarrh of the Stomach.

membranes lining the stomach, protects the

CARRIERS' POOR WAGES.
Representative Hearst Sought to
Rural Service Condl
Rural letter carriers have lost their
fight to obtain adequate compensation
from the government. The Republic
an majority in congress has gone on
record in favor of the meager allow
ance of $60 a month to rural carriers
who have to buy and feed their own
horses and work every day in the year
in all kinds of weather.
When the rural carriers went to con
gress with their petition they found
but half a dozen active supporters, and
in the lead of the fight for justice and
decent wages stood Representative
William Randolph Hearst of New
York. Against the united opposition
to a fair increase Mr. Hearst and a
few fair minded Democrats sought to
amend the postal appropriation bill
and give the carriers salaries commen
surate with the service they perform.
Their efforts were frustrated by a de
termined majority. The rural carriers
are now worse off than they were a
year ago. Their salaries have been In
creased to $720 a year, but the privi
lege to carry express and daily news
papers is taken away from them.
In a recent report by the American
consul at Vladivostok it is stated that!
coal is mined in that district at a cost'
of 2 cents a ton. Until a short time ago
the cost of production was 5 cents a
ton. In fixing wage rates for Amer
lean miners the coal barons invariably
make comparisons with the cost of pro
duction in other parts of the world,
and this tends to keep the earnings of
the American at the lowest possible
point. About the only influence in this
country which has combated the wage
reducing tendency of the coal barons
has been the insistent and persistent
effort of the Hearst papers, which are
under the direct editorial management
of William Randolph Hearst.
Attempts have been made to enforce
antitrust laws to loosen the grip of the
coal operators upon American domestic
and industrial life, and the publicity
given the methods of the greedy monop
olists has been effective in mitigating
somewhat the unjust conditions.
DEMAND AND SUPPLY.
HORSES AT SEA.
They Can smell Land Long Defore 14
Comes In sight.
The ability of horses to smell land
when' far at sea is not generally known,
but the equine must be credited with
this acute sense.
When a well known horseman of
Philadelphia went to Europe some time
aigo he took a blooded horse with him.
The animal was in a'specially prepared
stall on deck and enjoyed the trip
despite the rough weather. When the
horseman thought land should soon be
sighted, he asked the captain how far
the ship was from the Irish coast. The
commander of the steamer, in his usual
gruif manner, replied: "Your horse will
tell you. Watch him."
The owner of the animal could not
understand what the captain meant,
and he was not particularly pleased
with the answer. Finally, however,
and a couple of hours before land was
observed, the horse, which was a mag
nificent bay, poked his head through
the grating and, stretching his neck,
"There you are," said the captain to
the horseman. "Your horse smells the
land." The horse was like a different
animal thereafter until the coast loom
The captain In explaining the odd
occurrence said that the thoroughbred
detected the odor from pasture lands
that was wa~ted far seaward and that
horses on board ocean steamers always
give the first signal when land is near.
It is a matter of history that the
entire coinage of the Confederate
states consisted of four half dollar
pieces. The ebverse side had a god
dess of lberty (same as United States
coins) in an arc of thirteen stars, in
her right hand a shield of conventional
design with "Liberty" thereon and be
low the date. 1861. On the reverse
side was an American shield beneath
a Liberty cap, the union containing
seven stars- representing the segn se
ceding states-the whole surrounued by
a wreath; at the left cotton in bloom,
at the right sugar cane. The legend

Old Time Grave Robbers.
Under the laws of Draco, the most
severe code ever drawn up, all grave
robbers were put to death without
tial. The old Athenian laws put a
slave to death for disturbing a body
after interment, but in the case of a
freeman a "'confiscation of a moiety
of his possessions" wvas the penalty.
Constantine decreed that a woman
might obtain a divorce if she could
prove that her husband had disturbed
the remains of the dead. At one time
(in the time of the seventh and eighth
Henrys) the English law held that "it
is deemed unlawful to open a grave
for a second person, except for a hus
band or wife."
Yegetables of Liberia.
The most common vegetables of Li
beria are the sweet potato, cassada,
yam and tania. The cassada Is a root
varying in size from three to eight
inches in length and from three to
eight inches in circumference. When
It Is cooked It tastes very much like a
fresh chestnut. This root is the vegeta
ble most extensively cultivated by the
natives and forms, with the rice, their
chief diet. The fecula of the cassada
Is made from tapioca.

The Dirth of the Opal.
There is a beautiful little story told
about the opal, that delicate stone
which you have no doubt seen in rings
and bracelets. The story is that the
opal was long ago promised to any
body who could discover it. It lay hid
den away, so the old fortune tellers
used to say, at the place "where the
sunlight and the moonlight joined"
each other, and whoever could find
that spot would be rewarded by a
quantity of large, beautiful opals. Aft
er a long search for the place "where
the sunlight and moonlight joined"
each other the place was found by a
Spanish traveler, who followed up the
rays of the setting sun, and when he
had reached the end of the last ray he
waited until the noonbeams shone up
on the earth, and there he found the
opals. They are said to be very lucky
stones for those who are born in the
fall of the year and very unlucky for
those born in the spring. Of course it
is only a saying that these are lucky
or unlucky, but the rest of the story is
true, as you will believe if you look in
the heart of nn opal and see the pink
tints of the sun and the blue rays of
the moon nestling in the middle of it.
Squelching a Bore.
One of the famous Rothschilds was
once entertaining at dinner a distin
guished party. The dinner went on
admirably. Nothing marred the gen
eral enjoyment save the silly loquacity
of one young man. This young man
Insisted on monopolizing- the conversa
tion. He insisted on talking about him
self-about his books, his works, his
love affairs. his automobile. Finally
he jumped to his feet.
"By Jove!'' he said. "I must show
you my new cuff buttons. I got them
this morning. They are malachite."
And he passed from one guest to an
other, exhibiting the buttons. "Mala
chite," he kept repeating-"genuine
Baron Rothschild watched the young
man's progress with a faint sneer.
When the buttons reached him he
touched them with his finger supercili
ously and drawled: "Ah, malachite, eh?
It is a handsome stone. I have always
liked it. I have a mantelpiece of it in
the next room."
Mommsen on Languages.
The - German historian, Professor
Theodor Mommsen, was noted for the
facility with which he acquired lan
guages. The tongues of modern Eu
rope as well as the classics were to
him not studies, but the familiar tools
of his daily work. An American re
porter who was interviewing him some
years ago asked to have a certain ref
erence put into English, as he did not
read German well.
"Not read German well? And you a
journalist?" exclaimed ,the savant. "I
do not see how it is possible. Toung
man, German Is one of the four neces
sities for a student. The other three
are English, French and Italian. With
out them you can never know the tend
ency of modern thought. If you have
them not, do not rest until you have
learned them all."
Training a Horse.
The horse is a logical and therefore
a teachable animal. Once convince him
that a locomotive or any other object
of terror is not really dangerous and
he will never shy at it again. Every
year accidents occur because the har
ness breaks or the vehicle upsets, and
then the horse runs away. But such
accidents are unnecessary. Any horse
can, with a little pains, be taught to
hold back a carriage by his hind quar
ters as well as by the breeching. To
have wheels come off and straps and
other things hitting his legs should be
a part of every colt's education.-Counl

Herbert spencer's Oddities.
Herbert Spencer hated clocks which
strike, especially out of door clocks.
When staying in lodgings in a Berk
shire village he sent a request to the
owner of the principal house there that
the sitable clock, which struck the
hours, might be stopped. He was not
a good companion to go out for a drive
with, as, if he did not feel well, he
would ascertain how fast his pulse
was beating and if it was not satisfac
tory would instantly give the order to
Siazn's Sacred Elephaats.
Curious ceremonies are witnessed in
Siam when one of the sacred white ele
phants dies. It is given a funeral
grander than that accorded to prince
of royal blood. Buddhist priests offi

men and women follow the deceased
animal to the grave. Jewels and of
ferings representing small fortunes are
buried with the elephant.
A Grewsiome Collection.
At the prison of St. Paul, at Lyons,
France, there is a curious collection of

execution a fresh pen is used for the
purpose, and the ink Is left to dry up
