Ptemarkable Experience of Mr. Barry
With New Treatment Vil Sure
ly Interest Ali Sufferers.
"To every sufferer from back'achC
and kidney trouble,' says Mr. Jno.
W. Barry. ?353 Brandriff St.. Fort
Wayne, Ivdiana, "I want to tell that
I was a vict im of backaches for thirty
five vears e.ud that like many of my
fel"oW-sufferers, I tried hundreds of
reimedies without relief. I was so bad
at times I could not remove my cloth
ini. Someone recommended RZoot
Juice to me, just as I am recommend
ing it to you, and after taking it as
directed I found a speedy cure. I
certainly do not hesitate to comniend
this great medicine to any victim o
these complaints for I know what it
means to get relief."
The new Root Juice treatment pro
metes a flue appetite, makes diges
tion perfect so that pure nourishment
enters the blood; it strengthens the
kidneys and not only drives ont rheu
matic poison, but stops its accumn
lation. The results are surprisingly
ouick. One week's treatment will
inake a different person of you. Many
have said they would not take five
hundred dollars for wha. the juice
treatment has done for them.
The genuine Root Jui:e can be sup
piled by any good druggist but the
public is warned against tricky deal
ers who offer worthless or inferior
imitations upon which they make
more profit. The Dickson Drug Store.
Professor Elmer Gates performs a
very interesting experiment by im
mersing his hands ind arms to the
elbows in separate vessels filled with
water just to the point of overflowing.
By withdrawing his thought absolute
ly from one hand and concentrating it
on the other he so expands the blood
vessels in the latter by sending an ex
tra supply of blood to it that the wa
ter in the vessel in which it is over
flows quite perceptibly. To further
prove this power of thought concentra
tion he transfers the thought from
one hand to the other without chang
ing their positions until the other ves
sel overfio -s.
Professor Bell, inventor of the tele
phone, said th't when driving in the
provinces in extremely colI weather,
when he was in great danger of having
his feet frozen, he able to send
an extra supply of blood to t'em by
concentrating his mird upon them and
thus saved ilmself from a very pain
Jamaica's Booby Eggs.
Trade in booby eggs i. one of the
sights of Kingston. Jamaica. Long ago
the British seamncn gave the nau
"booby" to several. of th species of
gannets. because these fow.s are re
garded as stupid The eAs are gath
ered in vast quandiies on the islets at
certain seasons of the year and taken
to Port Antonio by the boatload. The
arrival of a boat with booby eggs is
the occasion of no little exe:itement
among the ,negro women, who buy
them by the box and then sell them by
retail chiefly in Kingston, though they
are also sold in other towns on the is
land. Though sold mostly by the doz
en to housekeepers, booby eggs are also
peddled, hard boiled. on the st::eets of
Kingston, salt and pepper being pro
vided that the purchasers mnay eat the
eggs at once- These eggs are about
two-thirds the size of an ordinary
hen's egg and are quite palatable.

ZEverybody in Middle Bay knew that
Mrs. Captain Liscomb was talking
about making a visit to her married
(aughter in Cincinnati. She had been
talking about it for two years, but age
and the natural timidity of a woman
unused to travel had postponed the
great event from month to month un
til the neighbors began to wonder
whether It would ever come to pass.
So one morning, when 'Uncle Billy

Ithsbeen said the life of Frederick
the Great as a boy under his father,
Frederick I., tirst king of Prussia, was
worse than that of Oliver Twist or
Smike at Dotheboys Hail. The old
king was 'a tyrant of the worst de
scription, andi his own family experi
eneed him at his worst. Frederick as
a boy received instruction in music
and Frenech from refugees in Berlin,
but when the king learned of it he
stopped the music 1,eremptorily.
The lad had little liking for military
pursuits- His father suspected his son
of heresy without having any clear
idea c what his owu theology really
was. Once in a rage the king almost
strangled his son with a1 window cord,
and at length matters were brought to
a crisis by the prince running away.
It was only through diplomatic inter
vention that Frederick's life wvas
spared, for ne was a soldier, and he
had been guilty of desertion. In his
father's eves this was a heinous of
fense and so grave that a friend who
was associated with the prince in his
"rebellion" suffered the extreme pen

Discovery of Speed of Light.
One of the greatest discoveries of
cience is due to observation of the
clipses of. Jupiter's moons. It was
ound that when the earth was in the
art of its orbit nearest to Jupiter
hese eclipses occurred sixteen.minutes
arlier than when it was in the far
ermost part, whereas by all rules of D
stronomy they should have occurred
t the same minute each time. It was
.educed from this that the light was
tot instantaneous and consequently
ook sixteen minutes to, traverse the
lameter of the earth's orbit, a dis
ance of about 200,000,000 miles, thus C
iving to light a velocity of 186,00D

hown later by other experiments.- 6C
