A Medical View of the Charges and
Work of Physicians.
The law of supply and demand regu
lates medical compensation to a very
great extent. it is a natural phenome
non, over which neither the professor
nor the laity have much control. Where
there are many physicians of equal
ability competition grinds down the
fees. If the income drops below living
expenses the-least successful leave the
community or take up other means of
getting bread and butter. The fittest
survive, and in every locality the com
position of the profession is in a state
of constant flux-never the same from
year to year and constantly regulating
Itself to the work to be done. When a
man develops exceptional skill his serv
ices are demanded more and more.
They are bid up by competitors on the
other side. le i, indeed, compelled to
raise his fees to prevent overwork,
strange as that may seem. le would
not be doing his duty by his patients if
he tried to treat a hundred a day, and
that many would crowd his offices if
his fees were 25 cents. It is also a fact
that a surgeon can do more now than
ever before-a few can do wonders as
compared with the surgeons of a cen
tury ago-and tbey receive more in pro
portion by the operation of natural
law., How they gained this ability Is
immaterial to the question. Indeed.
not all have ability to profit by fortui
tous opportunities to learn surgery.
A Sweet Breath.
A sweet breath adds to the joys of a
kiss. You wouldn't want to kiss your
m ife, mother or sweetheart with a bad.
You can't have a sweet breath without
a healthy stomach. You can't have a
healthy stomach without perfect diges
tion. There is only one remedy that
digests what you eat and makes the
breath as sweet as a rose-and that
is Kodol for Dyspepsia. It is a relief
for sour stomach, palpitation of the
heart, and other ailments arising from
disorder of the stomach and digestion.
Take a little Kodol after your meals
and see what it will do for you. Sold by

LAND QF THE PARIS CABMAN
Place to Which He Returns With His
savings to End His Days.
it Is a peculiarity of Paris, which ev
ery visitor who knows enough French
to tell one dialect from another must
have noticed,~that nearly all Paris cab
men come from the game part of the
country. The same thing is true of
coal merchants and of dealers in roast
ed chestnuts, who come from Au
vergne; of the goatherds, who hawk
their milk about the stseets, who are
Breton peasants, and of many other
The cab drivers' land is probably lit
tle known to Englishmen. It is down
in the Aveyron, and Rodez is its capi
tal, a tiny village, where the worst lan
guage and the best hearts in all France
are to be found. The eldest of each
family in Rodez takes the land and the
paternal cottage. The old folks live
with him until their death, and the
younger sons go to Paris- and drive
For years they drive about in all
weathers, scraping together sou by sou
until they have garnered enough to go
home and pay for their board and lodg
ing for the remainder of their days.
They go with the elder brother to a
notary on the first day of their return
home and -sign a deed by which be is
bourx. to keep them for the remainder
of t'air days in idleness in return for
their savrings,-London Standard.
Makes the Liver Lively.
Orino Laxitive Fruit Syrup gives
permanent relief in cases of habitual
constipation as it stimulates the liver
and restores the natural action of the
bowels without irritating these orgar~s
like pills or ordinary cathartics. Does
not nauseate or gripe and is mild and
pleasant to take. Remember the name

JAVA'S ISLAND OF FIRE.
It Xs Really a Lake of Boiling, Bub
bling 3Ind anid Slme.
The greatest naturail wonder in J.iva.
if not in the entire world, is the justly
celebrated "'Gheko Kamdka Gumko,"
or "Home of the Ilot Devils,"' known
to the world as the Islatnd of Fire.
This geological singularity is really a
lalke of boiling diud situated at about
the center of the plaiins of Crobogana
and Is calle'd an Island because the
great emerald sena of vegetation which
surrounds it gives it that appearance.
The "island'' is about two miles in cir
cumference, and is situated at a dis
tance of almost exactly fif.ty miles
from Solo. Near the center of this
geological freak immense columns of
soft, hot mud may be seen continually
rising and failing like great timbers
thrust through the boiling substratum
by giant hands and the again quickly
withdrawn. Besides the phenomenon
of the boiling mud columns there are
scores of gigantic bubbles of hot slime
that fill up lke huge balloons and keep
up a series of constant explosions, the
intensity of the detonations varying
with the size of the bubble. In time
past, so the Javanese authorities say,
there was a tall spirelike column of
baked mud on the west edge of the
lake which constantly belched a pure
stream of cold water, but this has long
been obliterated, and everything is
now a seething mass of bubbling mud
Here are some 'howlers" of British
schoolboys: "Chaucer," we are told,
wrote a middle class English;" "Ev
ry German goes to school at an early
age, however old he is;" "An axis is an
maginary line on which the earth is
spposed to take Its daily routine;"
The Pharisees were people who liked
o show off their goodness by praying
n synonymes;" "A sower wvent forth
o sow, and as he sowed he fell by the
ayside, and thieves sprang up and
hoked him;" "The larynx is the voice
ox and shuts when we swallow it."
Saved His Camrade's Life.
"While returning from the grand
rmy encamptment at Washington
ity, a comrade from Elgin, Ill., was
aken with cholera muorbus and was in
critical condition, "says Mr. J. E.
oughland. of Eldon, Iowa. "I gave
im Chamberlain's Colic and Diar
hoea Remedy and believe saved his
his life. I have been engaged for ten
ears in immigration work and con
ucted many parties to the south and
vest. I always carry the remedy and
hae used it successfully on many oc

Birds can and do work far harder
than human beings. A pair of house
martins when nesting will feed their
young on an average once in twenty
seconds-that is, each bird, male and
female, makes ninety journeys to and
fro in a hour, or, perhaps, 1,000 a day.
It must be remembered that on each
journey the bird has the added work*
of catching an insect. Even so tiny a
bird as the' wren has been counted to
make 110 trips to and from its nest
within 430 minutes, and the prey it
carried home consisted of insects much
larger, heavier and harder to find than
were caught by the swallows.-London

Helen, a little girl of four years,

"Two headaches?" said her mother.
"How can that be?"

The Servian Swineherd.
In any Servian village there is only
one swineherd, and he. leads all the
pigs of the community. In the morn
ing he goes through the streets blow
ing his horn, and the pigs come out of
their own accord and fall in behind
him and follow him to the pasture. At
night he brings them home, and they
disperse to their sties in the same or
derly way as they pass the houses to
which they belong. They require no
attention and no singling out
Old Chronic Sores.
As a dressing for old chronic sores
there is nothing so good as Chamber
lain's Salve. While it is not advisable
to heal old sores entirely, they should
be kept in & good condition for which
this salve is especially valuable. For
sale by The Arant Co. Drug Store.
The Unsatixned Blachelor.
."I have not married so I may have a
quiet life," said the bachelor. "Had I
married a good wife I would have been
afraid to lose her; a bad one, I would
have been unhappy. Had I taken a
poor girl we would have lived wretch
edly; a rich one, and she would have
had cause to taunt me with her money.
Had she been ugly I could not have
loved her; beautiful, and I would have
been eternally jealous. Therefore I
have not married, and yet life is a
nusance."-New York Press.
,Look a Litfle Ahead.
It is always well to have a box of
salve in the house. Sunburn, cuts,
brusises, piless and ,.oils yield to De
Wit's Witch Hazel Salve. Should keep
a box on hand at all times to provide
for emergencies. For years the stan
dard, but followed by many imitators.

The Lion's Share.
It is really not the male lion, with
his terrific roar and formidable -ap
pearance, that the explorer fears, but
his mate. The male lion is a good
looking poser, but when it comes to
business It is his wife' who counts, a
a the African native. Game is pulled
down by the female lion, and then the
male beats her off until he has feasted
to repletion, when- she may have what
s left; hence "the lion's share."
