The head was covered with a queer

that its color is imparted to anything it

there wasn't a spot on that hat. I knew
it had been worn by this slight odor
which had clung to the lining. The pur

It will relieve you. Rev. W. E. Hocut.t,

Value of the Average Man.
Genius is a phenomenon; the average
man Is a law. He has seen Shake
speares and Goethes and Napoleons
and Wagners rise Wd fall, and he
goes on calmly, knowing that-it is he
and not they who are the race. Despise
him, kick him. as you will, the last
word is with him. He is nature's fa
-orite. Like a true mother, she loves
her dull boy best A. Shakespeare was
too much. for her, but she saw to it
that his faculty perished with him. He
died, a wonder among men, and his
family reverted to the average. Lest
the abhorred thing should reappear In
the course of generations the family
presently died out The case is typical.
It is almost a commonplace of the sci
ence of heredity that the appearance
of extraordinary talent in any branch
of a family means the extinction of
that branch.-London Standard.
Kodol Digests What You Eat.
Just a little Kodol after meals will re
lieve that fulness, belching, gas on the
stomach, and all other symptoms of in
digestion. Kodol digests what you eat,
and enables the stomach and digestive
organs to perform their functions na
turally. Kodol is a thorough digestant

due to imperfect digestion or mal-as

by James Anthony Froude a biogra
pher says: "Conceiving that the child
wanted spirit, Hurrell, his elder broth
er, once took him up by the heels and
stirred with his head the mud at the
bottom of a stream. Another time he
threw him into deep ,water out of a
boat to make hiuh .manly. But he was
not satisfied by inspiring physical ter
ror. Invoking the aid of the preternat
ural, he taught his brother that the
hollow behind the house was haunted
by a monstrous and malevolent phan
tom, to which In the plenitude of his
imagination he gave the name of Pe
ningre. Gradually the child discover
ed that Peningre was an illusion and
began to suspect that other Ideas of
Hurrell's might be illusions too."
