In the opinion of legions of reliable
American people the most stubborn
constipation imaginable can be cured
by a brief use of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
Pepsin. You may not have heard of it
before, but do not doubt its merits on
that account, or because it has not been
blatantly advertised. It has sold very
successfully on word of mouth recom

Three miners, employed at
Joplin, Mo., in a zinc shaft, pre
pared 55 charges of dynamite in
the mine and then signaled for
the hoister to draw them to the
surface. A small piece of ma
chinery slipped from its position
and the hoist failed to work.
Letters recently received from M. E.
Myers, Morrison, Tenn., and Ada Ham
mersmith, 118 W. Chestnut St, Louisville,
Ky., are but a few of thousands
showing the esteem in which Dr. Cald
well's Syrup Pepsin is held. It is mild,
gentle, non-griping not violent, like
salts or cathartics. It cures gradually
and pleasantly so that in time nature
again does its own work without out
side aid. Constipated people owe it to
themselves to use this grand bowel

remedy before buying it in the regular

NO CASTE AT OXFORD.
Duke's Son and Cook's Son Share
Alike In Sports and Studies.
Actually there Is no university or col
lege in America at 'which distinctions
of birth or -wealth count for less than
they do at Oxford. There -was once a
time when there existed a class of "gen
tlemen commoners" John Ruskin, I
believe, was one of them who enjoyed
special privileges and exemptions.
But that peculiarity has long since
been swept away. Not only are the re
quirements for graduation identical for
all comers, but the social life within
each college of the university is open
on equal terms to every one on the roll.
"Duke's son" and "cook's son" share
alike in sports and studies, and it is
personal qualities alone that determine
the position an undergraduate holds
among his contemporaries.
The late P. W. Walker, for many
years so successful as high master of
Bt Paul's school, was once interviewed
by the rather snobbish mother of an
intended pupil. "Of course," she said,
"you are very particular about the par
ents of the boys you admit to your
gchool." "Not at all, madam," was his
reply. "As long as your son behaves de
cently and attends to his work we shall
not ask any questions about his par
ents." The head of any college at Oxford or
Cambridge might have given a similar
answer. London Cor. New York Post.
An Accident Pointed the Way to the
In 1742 Thomas Bolsover, a me
chanic of Sheffield, England, discovered
the art of silver plating. He was re
pairing the handle of a knife in which
both copper and silver were used. Ac
cidentally the two metals were fused
together. Based upon this observation,
he developed the new process.
Upon a thick ingot of copper he
bound by iron wire a thinner ingot of
silver. The whole was then heated in
a reverberatory furnace until the edges
of the silver ingot were observed to
begin to melt. The two ingots were
then removed from the furnace, slowly
cooled and pickled, cleaned and rolled
to the desired thickness. The result
was a plate of, copper more or less
thinly covered with silver on one side.
This was the first Sheffield plate.
For fifty years following the copper
was plated on one side only and tup
cut edges showed the copper. Later
the process was so perfected that no
copper was left exposed. All the sil
verplate of the world was made by
this process until electroplating was
discovered and made commercial.
Real Use of the Bee's Sting.
"The bee's sting Is a trowel, not a
rapier," said a nature student "It is an
exquisitely delicate little trowel with
which the bee finishes off the honey
cell, injects a little preservative inside
and seals it up. With its trowel-like
sting the bee puts the final touches on
the dainty and wonderful work. With
the sting it pats and shapes the honey
cell, as a mason pats and shapes a row
of brick. Before, sealing up the cell it
drops a wee bit of poison into the honey
This is formic acid. Without it honey
would spoil. Most of us think the bee's
sting, with its poison, is a weapon only.
It Is a weapon secondarily, but pri
marily it is a magic trowel, a trowel
from whose end, as the honey cells are
built up. a wonderful preserving fluid
Paper money is nothing but a prom
ise to pay so much coin. If you de
stroy a five dollar note, for instance,
you simply release the government or
the bank which issued the note from
the payment of the $3 in gold which
the note called for. Of course, there
fore, you are not punishable in any
manner for destroying the note if it is j
your own. There is no penalty for mu-1
tllating gold or silver coin If you keep I
itrin your own possession, but as you j
have thereby destroyed a considerable
part of its value you must not try to i
pass it at par after the mutilation.
Flame and Wire Gauze.
To Sir Humphry Davy belongs the
credit of discovering that the flame of
burning gas will not pass through wire
gauze having 7S4 meshes to the square J
inch. This contention may be tested I
by bringing a flame in contact with '
similar gauze, when it will be found
that the flame will not go through the
meshes. This is owing to the cooling j
action of the wire, which tends to re-1
duce the temperature of the flame be-,
low the ignition point, the unburned I
gas passing harmlessly through. Of i
course if the gauze becomes overheated
the flame is able to get through.
