3ature has provided the stomach
with certain natural fluids known as
the digestive juices, anp it is through
these juices that the food we eat is
acted upon in such a way as to produce
the rich, red blood that flows through
the viens of our body and thereby
in~akes us strong. healthy and robust.
.n1 it is the weakening of these diges
tive juices that destroyes health. It is
our own fault if we destroy our own
health, and yet it is so easy for any one
to put the stomach out of order. When

Majority and Plurality.
In politics the plurality is the great
est of more than two numbers and is
also the excess of the highest number
of votes cast for any one candidate
over the next highest number. When
a candidate receives out of 10,000 votes
cast 4,000 and two other candidates
receive respectively 3,500 and 2,500,
the first is elected by a plurality,
though he has received less than a
majority of the whole vote, and he is
said to have a plurality of 500 votes.
If. the numbers are 6,000, 3,000 and
1,000, the majority is 2,000 and the
plurality is 3,000. A majority, there
fore, must be more than half the en
tire vote cast, and a candidate's ma
jority is, then, the difference between
the number of votes he received and
the combined number of votes cast for
all other candidates; his plurality is
the difference between his own num
ber and the number received by the
candidate nearest to him. Oftentimes
a candidate receives a plurality, but
not a majority. Unless there is a tie
there is always a plurality. - Path

The Moral of Playing Cards,
Playing cards have had their iporal
side, it may surprise you to know. At
the Blenheim club in London,-lecturing
on the subject of playing cards from
the point of view of the collector, Mr.
Alfred Whitman said that the most
valuable packs were those that taught
Biblical~ history or inculcated moral
lesson In Italy i2 the eighteenth cen
tury it was customary to Issue packs
of cards with Old Testament scenes
engraved upon them. In Germany of
the same period playing cards with
fables to which morals were attached
were customary. French playing cards
of the time of Louis XIV. were used to
teach geography and history, while in
te England of Eliabeth and the Stu
arts playing cards were used as po
litical pamphlets. Most valuable were
cards issued in France at th'e time of
the French revolution. when figures of
Genius, Liberty and Equality took the
place of kings, queens and knaves.

H. Has Two Signatures.
There Is one New Yoi-k business man
who is reasonably proof against the
forger, as he has two signatures and
the forger must first get hold of one
of his bank checks to get any action.
Seeing the sinature on a letter or ho
tel register would do the forger no
good. The bank would not recognize
It. "I don't particularly fear the
forger," the business man admitted.

The Poor Hungry Fish.
"Here is an interesting thing that
happened last summer to a friend and
myself," said a New Yorker. "We had
gone on a fishing trip in a rowboat,
but it seemed that either all the fish
were at another place or were not hun
gry. We decided if those fish were
not hungry we were. We had taken
our luncheon, as wise fishermen will,
and in order to keep the bread as fresh
as possible had left it in loaf form.
My friend asked me to pass it to him,
and in doing so the loaf of bread went
overboard. We made out the best we
could without the bread and later row
ed to another place to fish. On our
way back we passed the place where
we lost our bread. Then we saw the
sight of our lives. On each side of the
loaf of bread stood a big fish, and for
as far as we could see there was a
great line of small fish. We wondered
what it was, and then the thought
da-r-ied on us-those fish had formed
a "bread line" and the two large fish
were dealing out the bread. After that
we didn't have the heart to try to
catch any of those poor, hungry fish."
A Bride With Some Good Points.
Some years ago in an agricultural
district in England th'ere lived a farm
er who wanted to sell one of his cows.
There was not at that time a weekly
paper in which he could advertise, so
he resolved to follow a local custom
and ask the vicar of the parish when
giving out his notices at church to ad
vertise the cow.
"Yes, farmer," said the vicar, "I
should be willing to oblige you, but
you don't attend my church."
Presently, however, they struck a
bargain that the vicar should adver
tise the cow, and the man in return
promised to go to church. Now, un
fortunately the man was deaf, and on
the Sunday following when the vicar
gave out the banns of marriage be

took it for granted that the vicar was

Where Red Hair Is Disliked.
In Cornwall, particularly the Land's
End district, it is not advisable to dub
a person "a red haired Dane," though
in most parts of England, especially
inland, the expression would as likely
as not provoke no comment at all or be
regarded as simply frivolous.
At a police court case heard In 1867
at Penzance town hall it came out in
evidence that the defendant had called
the complainant "a red haired Dane,"
and this led to an assault. The-strong
repugnance of Cornishmen to be dubbed

COFFEE AS A WEDDING GIFT.
A Custom Which Is General In Coffee
"We have a custom in the coffee
raising countries." said a high Brazil
ian official. "which is unknown in
other parts of the world. When a child
is born in the coffee country a sack of
the best grain is set aside as part of
the inheritance to be received on at
tainin ' s majority. Usually the sack
is the 'ift from some close friend or
relative, and it is guarded as sacredly
as if It were a gift of gold or bonds.
No stress would induce a Brazilian
parent to use coffee which was made
the birth gift of a child. As a rule.
it is sealed with the private seal of the
owner and bears a card giving all par
ticulars about the variety of grain, its
age on being sacked and the birth of
the child to whom it is given and
other details, which are very interest
ing when the gift is due.
"Generally the coffee is opened for
the first time when the child marries.
The coffee for the reception or mar
riage feast is made from the legacy,
and. according to precedent, this must
be the first time the sack Is opened.
After the coffee is made for the wed
ding feast the sack Is carefully closed
and sent to the new home of the young
people and should keep' them in this
staple for a year at least When both
bride and- bridegroom have the birth
gift of coffee they have started life
under very hopeful conditions, so far
as one necessity is concerned. Few
people know that the older the un
parched grain of coffee is the better
the flavor. Like wine, it grows with
age. and that which is over twenty
years mellowing under proper condi
tions will bring from $1.50 to $3 a
pound from connoisseurs. The giving
of pounds of green coffee is a common
practice in the coffee belt Friends ex
change these gifts and compare re
sults. ~When one cannot afford to give
a sack of coffee, it frequently is the
case that ten pounds of the best green
grain are packed in a fancy case and
bestowed on a newly born child, with
directions that it must not be opened
until the wedding day."
FIRST AMERICAN GLASS.
Made at a Factory Built by a Boston
Man In New Hampshire.
The first American glass factory was
erected in the town of Temple, N. H.
Washington in his diary speaks of

One would suppose by the language

began to carry out the projdet which
he had long conceived, but had hith
erto found Impracticable if not impos
sible under English rule, that of mak
ing glass in America for America.
In .1780 Mr. Hewes selected a site for
his factory secure from the British
forces (his glassblowers were Hessians
and Waldeckers, soldiets who had de
serted from the British army), and he
must have had an- eye for the beauti
