Nurses and Cancer.
"I find the trained nurses brave
enough in most cases of'contagious dis
ease." said a Brooklyn doctor, "but
there is one thing at which they balk."
"What's that," asked a friend
"No; cancer. They have all the un
trained woman's horror of that dis
ease. The most faithful of them will
go without an engagement for weeks
rather than take a cancer case. Yet
the peril is slight compared with what
they face almost without thought."
"Isn't it contagious?"
"A malignant case is if a scratched
hand is brought Into contact with the
cancer. Three cancers out of four,
however, are not malignant and can be
dressed without. gloves safely. The
trained nurses balk at all of them."
Endorsed by a Minister.
Rev. Parker Holmes, pastor of the
first M. E. church, South Hickory, N.

Tablets for indigestion and regard
them as a perfect remedy for this dis
ease. I take please in recommending
them to all sufferers from indigestion."
Use Rydale's Stomach Tablets for
your trouble and you will join Dr.
Holinos in this strong endorsement.
These tablets will enable your stomach
to digest your food, and thus nourish
the body and prevent the partial starv
ation from which all dyspcptics sufter.
These tablets relieve disagreeable sym
ptoms at once. They will increase your
strength and flesh almost from the first
dav's use, and will soon restore you to
perfect health. W. E. Brown & Co.

IN CASE OF FIRE.
The Landlord Told His Literary Guest
How to Get Out.
In the days before the dawn of his
fame it was the practice of a certain
well known author to wander up and
down the land seeking what he might
devour in the way of suggestion and
local color. In this way he had drifted
into Arkansas. "roughing it," and not,
as lie expresses it, presenting an ap
pearance calculated to inspire a hotel
proprietor with unlimited confidence.
The only hotel in the town, a frame
structure, seemed to have been built
upon the theory that there was plenty
of riom straight up, but that ground
had to be bought, and the wanderer
was shown to a room on the third
floor. reached through many narrow
and winding passages. From the one
window it was a straight drop to the

Colombia Has the Oldest Walled City
In This Hemisphere.
One of the few walled cities in this
hemisphere and perhaps the oldest, is
that of Cartagena, Colombia, South
America. The wall, which is still
standing and -fh excellent couilition,
stretches its irregular circumference
several miles in inclosing what was
one of the gayest, wealthiest and lar
gest cities of the new world in the
days of Spanish supremacy. It is said
that $50,000,000 was spent in construct
ing this wall, and it must be remem
bered that three or four centuries ago
that meant considerably more money
than it does now.
The wail is wide enough to accom
modate several teams abreast. Its top
is flat in most places, while at Inter
vals there stand sentry boxes, showing
that the wall was meant to guard the
light hearted residents within its in
closure from sudden attacks either by
sea or by land.
At one end of the wall near the sea
is still to be seen the government pris
on. Here there is a long row of cells,
which are still kept for the use of pris
oners. At present these offenders are
much sought by tourists to the Spanish

A HEAVY MIDDAY- -E EL'
The Business Man, it 1s Claimed
Should Avoid It.
The Americans and English begin
the day with breakfast, which Is gen
erally a substantial meal. This the
people of the continent of Europe con
sider barbaric and disgusting. - The
Frenchman and the German breakfast
on a scanty roll. They are consequent
y unable to go till the afternoon with
out absorbing something massive. The
Frenchman toward noon takes a sub
stantial lunch, and at midday the Ger
man takes a heavy meal, which ab
sorbs his digestive energies during the
remainder of the day. The German
dinner makes a big break in the work
ing day, and the eater, according to
Dr. Martinet of Paris, suffers by a loss
of energy during the afternoon. The
heavy midday meal Dr. Martinet con
siders a mistake. One should not have
dinner at noon, In the middle of one's
workday, he says, but Instead should
take a light lunch. The lightest meal
of the day, he thinks, should be during
the period.of exertion, and the heavy
meal should be reserved for a later
hour, when there Is a chance for di
gestive repose. The proper series for
the modern man, according to this.au
thority, is a substantial breakfast, a
light lunch about noon and a square
meal at 6 o'clock or later.-Baltlmore
A SLAB OF BLACK STONE.
Key to All the Ancient Writings' of the
There is a slab of black stone In the
British museum which if you could
walk away with it and establish your
claim as the owner you could sell any
day for a quarter of a million and find
half a dozen money kings In -England
and America ready to buy It
There is nothing very striking about
this stone. It might be a piece of
black marble with some peculiar hiero
glyphics upon it. But it Is just these
hieroglyphics which make It so valua
ble, because they are the key to all
the ancient writings of the Egyptians,
and without this stone, called the Ro,
setta stone, we should be unable to
read the Egyptian writings which have
been discovered from time to time.
Some French tourists' found the Ro
setta stone in Egypt and transported
It to Paris, where an Englishman took
a fancy to it for a garden -ornament
He paid E5 for it-5 sovereigns-and
got a treasure which you could cover
with gold and yet not represent its
value, but till the day of fils death he
did not know what that bit of stone
was worth.-London World.
Joseph Jerome Lafrancals de -La
lande, the'popular French astronomer
of a century ago, differed from -New
ton's view that Providence had so ar
ranged matters as to make collision of
the earth with a comet impossible and
wrote a paper to prove that it was
only very improbable. -This paper,
which was to have been read with oth
ers before the French academy on a
certain day in 1773, got crowded out
but the Parisian public, hearing of it,
made up Its mind that Lalande had
predicted the impending destruction of
the earth and such panic ensued that
the police had to order the publication
of the paper to* reassure the public
mind. But even then It was.'popularly
believed that the paper had been delib
erately toned down and comet panics
continued for a quarter of a- century.
The Printing Press.
The most uiseful all round invention
to humanity is the printing spress. -
Generations ago some philosopher said,
"In the world there is nothing great
but man, and in man there is nothing
great but mind." That Is to say, while
there are many great things, the great
est is mind. It -Is by and through his
intellect that man has risen to the.
mastery of the planet, and whatever
sharpens the intellect at the same time
advances the world's civilization. This
the printihg press has done as nothing
else has done, and therefore to th-e
.printing press belongs, the -honor of
being the most useful all round 'inven
tion known to man.-New York Amern
Origin of "Hurrahi"
The history of many a race- may- be
read in its battlecry. The "Bnai!"
of the Jap-nese, the "Faghaghballah!"
of the Iris and our own "Hurrah!"
have found their origin far back In
Although many authorities have de
clared that the word "hurrah" Is a de
velopment of the Jewish "hostnnah," -
the consensus of opinion now is that it
is a corruption of the ancient battle
cry of the wild Norsemen, "Tur ale!"
meaning "Thor aid us!" Formerly the
word was spelled "huzza" -and pro
nounced "hurray." In one form or
another It Is used by almost every na
