GOLD AND THE SEA.
Why the Metol Is Shipped In Barm
Rathaer Than in Coin.
"-When the banks ship gold across
the Atlantic." said a banker. "they pre
fer to ship it in bars rather than in
coin. It loses less that wny."
"It loses less'"
"Yes, sir. If $1,000,000 in gold coins
is shipped across the sea it is only
$W99,SOO on its arrival. It loses from
twelve to fifteen ounces, about $200,
through abrasion, through knocking
about with the motion of the waves.
The sea makes gold lose weight, you
see, the same as it does human beings
Gold bars lose less. In fine weather
they will only lose about $10) to each
million. In the ugliest weather they
dont lose over $150. whereas in like
conditions gold coins have been known
to lose $30. As gold shipments of $10,
000.000 often occur, to make these ship
ments iu gold bars instead of gold -.oin
is a saving of $1,000 or more. It is odd
to think when you cross in one of those
gold laden- ships that every wave that
hits the boat clips off 10 to 15 cents
from its golden cargo."--Philadelphia
How to Avoid Appendicitis.
Most victims of appendicitis are those
who are habitually constipated. Orino
Laxative Fruit Syrup cures chronic
constipation by stimulating the liver
and bowels and restores the natural ac
tion of the bowels. Orino Laxative
Fruit Syrup does not nauseate or gripe
and is mild and pleasant to tak-e. Re
fuse substitutes. The Arant Drug Co.
Cruel, but Necessary.
The Eskimos dread the winter and
take early precautions to provide
against famine. As the season ap
proaches the great herds of reindeer
migrate southward, and the walrus or
the seal are all that remain for food.
When an In wind is blowing the wal
rus is easily found on the outer edge
of the ice packs. When it Is blowing
o'fr the shore, however, the ice packs
sail out to sea with the walruses on
them. The natives then class their
numbers in a list from the strongest to
the weakest The food that is in store
is divided up, the weakest having the
smallest quantity, the strongest the
largest Thus the mightiest hunters
have strength to provide for the oth
ers. It is a cruel system, but neverthe
less a necessary one. If all were weak,
all would die; If some are strong,. they
will save many of the weak.
A Great Outside Remedy.
Most pains are of local origion-a
"crick" in the back, twinge of rheu
matism, soreness all over arising from
cold-are all cured by outside applica
tions. The quickest. safest and most
certain method is Allcock's Plaster,
known the world over as a universal
remedy for pain. They never fail, they
act promptly, they are clean and cheap

Ingly annoying and painful. An old
fashioned household remedy is alum,
the powder or crystals being applied to
the yellow center. But this is a bitter,

THE WILD BALSAM APPLE.
Its Seed Holders Are Suggestive of
In the brools of autumn in certain
places many l!ttle iacelike bags may
be seen drifting- along with the cur
rent or strauded by the shore. They
are the inner coats or bodies of the
wild balsam apples (Echinocystis loba
ta) which have dropped from the vines
overhanging the stream and now float
lightly away with their large seeds.
The green prickly bag of'the balsam
apple itself began to form in late sum
mer. and by autumn it has withered
and faded to a pale straw color. We
jay see .he trailing vines with their
shrunken pods decorating the b.rook
side bushes far into the winter. The
outer coat of the pod gradually rots
away, and the inner bag or seed car
rier is now released and exposed as a
delicate, webby network of tough
fibers. A thin skin or membrane fills
up the space between these meshes,
but that also falls away through the
action of water and the winter storms
tntil only the ball-like tissue of the
"Purse" is left. These little purses, be
ing extremely light and buoyant, float
far and wide over the submerged
swamp lands in late autumn, carry
ing the seeds with them and so plant
ing the vine in new situations. If, how
ever, we take these seeds home with
us and plant them there, Mother Earth
will suitably reward us in the follow
ing year with vines of our own. They
will spring up and spread rapidly until
all the stone walls and garden fences
are decorated with the tracery of their
stems and star shaped leaves.--St.

The Largest Pipe.
What is described as the largest pipe
in the world is valued at ES,000 and is
counted as one of the most remarkable
pieces of carving in existence. The
pipe is made of one solid piece of
meerschaum and represents the land
ing of Columbus. There are twenty
four figures in the scene, each one four
inches high. The carver who executed
this masterpiece is dead, and, as the
demand for this sort of work has near
ly died out, it is practically impossible
to find a man to duplicate it-London
