The food you eat ferments

cleanse your system from
these undesirable poisons.

Glass In the Making.
The manufacture of glass antedates
authentic history. It is only about
seventy-five years, however, since its
true character was ascertained. It is
now generally conceded to be a salt-a
chemical compound resulting from the
union of an acid with a base. The acid
Is silica. the same that is found in
quartz or the quartz particles of sand;
hence the use of sand in its manufac
ture. The base may be potash (or

The Telephone Voice.
The voice heard over the telephone
is a mechanical reproduction of the
original voice and differs from that of
a speaking tube or megaphone. where
the sound waves produced by the
speaker at one end are transmitted
directly to the other end. In the tele
phone the diaphragm of the transmit
ter is caused to vibrate by the sound
waves produced by some'one talking
into the transmitter mouthpiece. This
diaphragm is connected with a small
receptacle having' a flexible front and
- partially filled with granular carbon
This carbon offers resistance to elec
tric current in. proportion -to the me
chanical 'ressure brought upon it.
The diaph.-gm, therefore, in vibrat
ing produces a varying pressure
against the carbon. The carbon is
included in an electric circuit, so that
the variations in its resistance will

A certain physician sat in a boxr at
the theater the other night. It hap

take his seat in that particular box.
The next man ushered in had been
hitting just a few of the more elevated
points in the highway prior to coming
to the theater.
"Am I intruding"?'' he inquired ever
so politely of the doctor. "Have you
this section engaged all for yourself?"
"No. I haven't got it engaged all
for myself. Sit down." replied the
doctor brusquely. for he. didn't want
to encourage the stranger to carry on
any extended conversation.
"All right, then." replied the stran

and let down the upper berth."

The forehead is the first feature of

A feeling of sadness accomnpanies thie

unfortunately, are looked upon as heralds
of advancing age. Gray hairs. however,
a're not always an indication of advanc

quite early in life. Of course, it is un
unatural, and indlicates that there is some
thing wrong with the individual, and that

Awad by the Servant.
The aiuSing mistake once made by
two Abyssinian Jelegates of the Em
peror Mienelek to France is narrated
by the Paris Gaulois. Awed by the
splendor of his gold lace uniform and
the solemnity of his imposing man
ner, they mistook the usher at the
doer of the foreign minister's office
for M. de Selves himself. As they
were brought into the anteroum the
usher was standing with his hands on
the door handle ready to announce
them. But at the sight of his silver
chain his medals, his sword, his gold
topped cane and his three cornered
hat the Abyssinlans could not be ex
pected to know they were in the pres
ence of a mere servant So bowing
low repeatedly, they approached him
slowly and with great respect until
they were within reach of his coattails.

did not know what to do, but the ap

A Parisian journalist who had spec

francs as the result of a lucky ven
ture. Drawing it in gold. he proceed
ed to a hotel, emptied the bags of
gold in the bed and went to sleep lit
erally in the sands of Pactolus. The
man was so crazed by his good for

Paganini, the violinist, when he re

A French novelist, Soulie, wrote a
book called "The Memoirs of the Der

ers paid him for the first volume $10,
000 in gold. The author carried the
gold to his bedroom, poured it into a

Old Leather Bottles.
Leather bottles, or blackjacks, were
common in Europe two centuries ago.
The bottles were often made of one
skin doubled up and closely stitched
together, leaving an aperture for the
neck. The thick piece between was
inserted for :he slip. It was meant to
be slung at the back, a leather thong
passed through two loops placed on
either side of the neck, and it was suf
ficiently flat at the base to stand when
put down. The stopper was made of
wood, horn or old leather. A good
deal of care was required in the prep
artion of the leather, which had to be
oiled and worked with hammers to
make it supple and then washed with
a lye so that all the impurity was en
tirely removed, leaving the leather
clean, and dry. No moisture or air had
any effect on it. Blackjacks were, in
fact, flagons made in various sizes.
They were sometimes pitched inside.
A Hair Trigger Constitution.
Some one has said that animals have
a hair trigger constitution, says Orison
Swett Marden in Success Magazine.
They go off on the slightest provoca
tion, because they act from impulse
They do not know how to control
themselves. The animal instinct dom
Self control is the first condition of
all achievement. It is said that the
first sign of insanity is the loss of self
control. When a per-son is no longer
the master of his own acts he is not
only in danger, but any degree of
achievement is impossible to him.
Every thought tends to result in an
act, so that thought always leads. The
mental attitude at any moment Is the
pattern which the life processes
weave. The lives of many of us are
grotesque crazy quilts.
If Canada Had Been Ceded to Us.
But for the wisdom of George Wash
ington and Benjamin Franklin Eng
land would have ceded Canada to us at
the close of the Rtevolutionary war.
Washington and Franklin knew that
if Canada had been ceded to the colo
nies France, from which Canada hiad
been wre.ated some twenty years ear
Lier, would have demanded that coun
try as indemnity for the expense she
was put to .in the war for our inde
pendence. With the French flag re
stored in Canada it would have been
a matter of a very short time when we
would have been at war with France,
and to save us from defeat there is
nothing more certain than that we
would have appealed to England. The
aid would have come, and come swift
and irresistible, and the chances are
we would have returned to our alle
giance to the crown of England, for it
was years between the treaty of peace
and the formation of the Union, plenty
of time to get into a quarrel with
France over some dispute as to bound
ary or fishing.-Washington Post.

IWhen Baronets Were Bold.
It was in the reign of good King
James that baronets first came into
Iexistence. Today you could hardly tell
a baronet from a banker. But in the
year -1011. when James 1. needed ready
money and created 200 "little barons"
to supply him wvith cash, they swag
gered about in their baldrics and sash
es and behaved in the courtliest of
fashion. Each baronet in order to
justify his title had to maintain a
small army of thirty soldiers for three
years. In this way the crafty king
not only increased his revenue, but
actually lightened his expenses.
It is not generally known that the
title of '-baronetess" has twice been
bestowed on women. One of these was
the mother of a Dutch general. The
other was a Nottingham lady named
Dame Maria Bolles. who wvon her way
Into the good graces of Charles I. aind
received the title from his hands.
