OUR PRIVATE POWER PLANT.
Nature Produced It, and Science Has
Never Equaled It.
The most complicated manufucturing
plant that ever existed Is the human
body as controlled under the scientific
management of the brain and nervous
system. No factory ever boasted a
more effcient producer plant for con
erting fuel into energy. No plant ever
had so well designed a pumping sys
tem nor one so perfect for the disposal
of waste and sewage. Talk of beating
and ventilating up to date or Interde
partment telephone! The best that our
modern science can put into our shops
Is crude indeed as compared with that
furnished by the Great Designer. Sup
pose that you went to a pump manu

Do you think the manufacturer would

meanwhile edging you toward the door

a pump as you speak of never existed
nor ever will except in the brain of a
perpetual motion freak such as I see
before me." Which shows how much

ART OF BATHING.
To Get the Right idea Just Inquire of
Any Healthy Boy.
The art of bathing has never been
fully understood. It ought to be put
on Its feet. Some people feel that in
order to bathe It is necessary to call
in the services of a physicianl. Others
bathe at the slightest provocation-on
ra!road trains and when they are vis
iing a famrily of ten with only one
bathroom. Such people would call for
a bath anywhcre-on a trolley car, on
an excursion steamboat or when cross
ing the desert of Sahara.
Between these two extremes, the
bathers and the nonbathers, there lies
a vast gulf. If these people could only
be brought together-by arbitration
possibly-what a benefit to society!
Boys are the only ones who have
the right Idea. No real boy likes to
take a bath or to be presented with
one on a marble slab. Any healthy
boy will sink to any necessary moral
level to avoid this. But any boy will
go i swimmuinz. In short, If there be
about th~e batt' the spirit of adventure,
then the boy-whose instincts are nat
ural-will seize the bait. Swimming
in April. with the water somewhat
above zero. is a joy for him which
would be properly resented in a bath
room. If we must bathe indoors there
fore the boys ought to be In charge of
the proceedings. And If they were all
the mean. contemptIble bathtubs would
be abolishe-d and every house would
have a swimming pool. Everybody has
a motorcar. Why not a swimming
Mrs. Mellen did not wish to offend
her new cook.
"John," she said to the manservant,
"can you find out without asking the
cook whether the tinned salmon was
all eaten last night? You see, I don't
wish to ask her because she may have
eaten it, and then she would feel un
comfortable," added the good soul,
"If you please, mna'am," replied the
man, "the new cook has eaten the
tinned salmon, and If you was to say

LA a finished product, the gentleman
seems to do everything very easily;
but that ease like the case of the habit,
can only come by effort. He is socially
secure; but whatever his station, he
was not born so, for no man ever is
socially secure by birth, even If he
was born to be a king. The test of a
gentleman Is the pleasure others take t
in his society, and not in his wit or his
virtue of his learning, but In their Qr- t
dinary social relations with him. And -
this pleasure he cannot give merely
by being on good terms with himself.
