Why They Are So Clean.
"How Is it that French children are
so tidy?" many foreigners in Paris in
quire. Because from the ilme they
understand an elementary sentence
it is dinned into them that it is very
wrong to run fast, to fall or to dirty
their dresses In any way. and, above
all, it is awful to muss their hair. An
ordinary scene in the Bois is where
two children arrive in their auto ac
conipanied by a nurse and a governess.
They (the children) are dressed in light
silk dresses and wear long white
gloves. They start to play ball. Every
time the ball touches the ground, which
happens once In awhile, the nurse
rushes up and wipes every bit of
sand very carefully off the ball before
it is handed back to the children. Is
it a wonder that their long gloves are
clean?-New York Post.
Endorsed by a Minister.
Rev. Parker Holmes, pastor of the
first M. E. church, South Hickory, N.
C., says: "I have used Rydale'sstomach
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.
Holmos 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 dyspeptics suffer.
These tablets relieve disagreeable sym
ptoms at once. They will increase your
strength and flesh almost from the first
day's use, and will soon restore you to
perfect health. W. E. Brown & Co.
A London Fog.
Nothing has such a bewildering ef
fect as fog. Only animals which fnd
their way by scent can get about in it
with any certainty. Birds are entirely
confused by it. Tame pigeons remain
all day motionless and half asleep,
huddled up. either in or just outside
their pigeon houses. Chickens remain
motionless for hours during heavy fogs.
No bird sings or utters a call. perhaps
because it fears to betray its where
abouts to an unse:i f.e. During one
very thick fog : blind man was found
wandering about :a certain district of
London. This nin was in the habit of
coming up every day from a suburb,
carrying notes and paree's. and had
scarcely ever lost his waxy before.
Asked why he hand gene astray (for he
was quite blind, and it was supposed
that weather would have made no dif
ference), he said that in a fog the
ground "sounded quite differently."
They Quit Right There.

Gulf Stream Fruit.
The superiority of certain English
fruits has its origin in a cause little
suspected. It is the blessed gulf
stream which does it. Foreign grow
ers are every bit as acute as the Eng
lish, it may be. but they have not the
right atmosphere. The gulf stream
imparts a beneficent humidity to our
atmospherce which results in our fruit
having the thinnest and finest skins of
any In the worid. The English straw
berry Is without equal for flavor. The
English grape, though it may not have
the fine flavor of the Spanish, has the
best skin. The French tomato Is .as
thick skinned as the English field
grown. The English apple eclipses its
rivals because of its thin skin. Every
fruit according to its climate. Grown
In a different atmosphere, the English
apple would shrivel In a day; here,
helped by the moisture from the gulf
stream, it ripens within the thinnest
of jackets and is as muchsuperior to
the foreign or colonial apple as a peach
is superior to a parsnip.-St. James'

"What is your shortest hour in the

quaintance. "Don't say you have none.
You have, although you may not,
know it. Everybody has. Of course,
reckoned by actual measurement, each
hour is composed of sIxty minutes, yet
notwithstanding that chronological ex
actness the hours vary in length. My
shortest hour Is from 2 to 3 o'clock in
the afternoon. I find upon inquiry
that this Is the fleetest period for many
people. ,In my case so swiftly do
those sixty minutes hurry by that I
try to crowd into them as niany of

If I have to visit the dentist. I .do It

scenes seems of shorter duration."
