Vinol is the most efficient strength
creator for such women. It is the
medicinal elements of the cods' livers
contained in Vinol, aided by the blood

of tonic iron, which makes it so far
superior to all other tonics to build
up health and strength for weak,
tired, ailing women. It contains nz

BLACK LETTERS AND WHITE
The Former More Distinct at a Dis
tance Than the Latter.
There is a tendency on the part of
railroads to adopt signs with white
letters on a black background. not re
alizing that the black letter on a white
background is easier to read and car
be seen at a greater distance. This
follows In an interesting way from the
structure of the retina of the eye.
The impression of a- letter at the
limit of vision is received on the ends
of a small bundle of nerves which con
vey to the brain a sort of mosaic im.
pression. A nerve can only transmit
to the brain information as to whether
or not a ray of light Is falling upon
It. and when a nerve Is partly In the
light and partly In darkness the sensa
tion is the same as though all of It was
In the light.
It follows, therefore, according to
the Scientific American. that all nerves
on the dividing edge between any
black and white area transmit the sen
sation of light so that all white lines
and white areas appear wider and all
black lines and black areas appear
narrower than they really are.
Blaclk letters grow thinner at the
limit of vision and are still recogniz
able, while at the same distance white
letters grow thicker and cannot be dis
tingnished. There are circumstances
when it is necessary to use white let
ters. but In such cases legibility will
be Improved if they are made with a
thin stroke and strongly lighted. Black
letters are more distinct If made with

Throughout the northern Unite(
States, from the Atlantic ocean to thb
far northwest and as far south as Ken
tacky. huge bowiders are found seat
tered at haphazard. The rocks anc
ledges are smoothed and marked wit
scratches varying from faint lines t<
broad grooves two feet deep. Some of
these bowiders. weighing many tous
are so balanced on a ledge that a slight
touch will rock them. The Indians used
them as "alarm bells."
The grooves or scratches on these
rocks are as a rule parallel and extend
north and south. South of the above
mentioned area neither bowlders nor
scratched rocks can be found.
How came the bowiders in their po
sition? What scratched the rocks?
Agassiz. familiar with the glaciers of
the Alps. probably gave the true an
swer. He showed that a similar state
of things is produced today by the gla
ciers of Switzerland. These streams of
ice creep slowly down from the lofty
summits of the Alps through the Val
leys to the plains. They bear on their
surface huge rocks fallen from sur.
roundin'g cliffs. The stones frozen in
the bottom of the glacier, pressed down
by the enormous weight of ice above
them, scratch and groove the rocks be
neath. as the tool of a carpenter gouges
out a piece of wood.
What was the condition of America
when similar effects were produced?
Instead of local glaciers scattered in
the valleys, the whole surface now cov
ered with bowiders must have been
hidden by an immense sheet of Ice.
Judging from the marks on the rocks.
the sheet moved from the north toward

POWER OF THE SEA.
Fearful Force of OceYI Waves When
They Run Wild.
The average inland American who
has never seen the ocean has no real
Idea of the force of Its waves. He
reads about the storm, of boats being
carried away and bulwarks stove. But
he does not realize the steam hammer
blows that may be struck by mere
A recent storm on the British coasts
received the otticial designation of a
storm of "extreme force." A picture
taken In Hastings harbor shows the
concussion with which - the waves
struck the sea- wall, sending, the spray
apparently higher than thie buildIngs
along the -street. Blocks of concrete
and iron railing were torn from the
new parade extension at Caroline place
and' tossed back into the roadway as If
they had been bits of plank. Timber
work that had withstood the stress of
years was torn apart and carried away.
Basements were flooded along all the
seaward face of the town.
Such a storm when It sweeps over a
ship will sometimes carry away almost
everything on deck. Deck houses are
often smashed, and the lifeboats are
often stove in and ruined.
Various attempts have been made to
devise motors to develop power from
the force of the waves. The amount
of energy wasted through their lack of
success Is beyond estimate. If the
power of the sea could be used it
would drive the machinery of an un
limited number of plants.-Chicago

Foresight or Good Guessing in a Pa

One day in October, 1883, Lady A..
living in Rue du Bel-Respiro, Paris.
found that she had been robbed of a
auma of 3.5iO0 francs. She notified the
commissary of police on Rue Berryer.

the servants, but discovered nothing.

very well qualified for his duties, who
ad been nicknamed "le Petit," not on
account of his stature, for he was rath
er tall, but from a feeling of delicate.
protecting familiarity which his good
qualities had won for him.
Meanwhile among the friends of
Lady A. there had been a good deal of
talk about a certain Demoiselle E.,
who, they said, could see the most sur

riosity to accompany his governess to
the house of this person and was quite
surprised to hear her describe exactly
each piece of furniture in Lady A.'s
apartment, pass in review her seven
servants and say that, though she
could not name the thief. he would be
guillotined within two years.
Some weeks later "le Petit" left the
service of his mistress without giving
any reason, and two years later he
mounted the scaffold. This servant, so
highly esteemed. was none other than

Montenegrins are the descendants of
Servan aristocrats who fled to the J
mountains *o seek freedom. The ex
planation is thin, but pleasing. Of one
claim to culture, however. Montene
gr cannot be deprived-she established
a printing press at Obod only twenty
years after Caxton began his labors,
and she printed beautifully. But the
Turks made 'pi' of everything, and the
press was not re-established till 1832."
The Drunlkard's Cloak
One of the quaint instruments of tor- 1)
ture in England in olden time was a
device known as the drunkard's cloak. O
It was made of wood and in shape re
sembled a huge inverted flowerpot.
Through the small circular aperture in
the top was thrust the neck of the im
prisoned inebriate. The weight of this
ancient counterpart of the straitjacket
fell on the victim's shoulders and was --
sufficient to make every bone in ..i
body ache. With his hands practically
pinned to his sides and the garment
reaching almost to the ground the only
motion allowed him was a slow shutile
of his weary feet as he dragged his Prot
way painfully along. One can well be
lieve that any one who had been com- --
pelled to don the drunkard's cloak
would be very apt to come to the con -
clusion that a high old time was not
worth having at the price.. LA
