The Coador of the Andes.
Up among the cold, white peaks
of the Andes, higher than the human
foot has had daring to tread, is eoine
times seen a dark speck, slowly cir
cling in the clear air. The speck
gradually descends, and we see it is
the largest bird of the air, the condor.
It's flight is swifter than the eagle's.
Nothing but the distance could have
made the condor of the Andes seem
small and slow of wing. Swiftly de
scending, strong,' cruel, hungry, he
fastens his horrid eye upon some luck
less lamb or kid. Itarely it is able to
escapo or hide from its enemy; suc
cessful resistance is impossible. The
condor cannot carry off its prey in its
talons, like the eagle, for it has not
the eagle's power of grasp; and the
sharpness of its claws is in time worn
off on the hard rocks which are its
home; so, standing on the struggling
animal with one foot, the coudor
kills the poor thing with his power
ful beak and his other foot. Like
many other greedy creatures, the
condor after his dinner becomes in
capable of flight, and it is only then
that he can be approached with safe
ty; but even now the hunter muH be
cautious and strong. A Chilian
miner, who was celebrated for his
great physical strength, once thought
that without weapons he could cap
ture a condor which seemed unusual
ly stupid after its heavy meal. The
man used all his strength, and the
engagement whs long and desperate,
till at last the poor miner was glad to
escape with his life. Exhausted,torn
and bleeding,he managed to carry off
a few feathers as trophies of the hard
est battle he had ever fought. He
thought that he had left the bird
mortally wounded. The other miners
went in search of (he body, but in
stead, found the bird alive and erect,
flapping its wings for flight. If the
condor does not reach an untimely
end by violence, it is, according to all
accounts, very long-lived. The In
dians of the Andes believe that he
lives for a hundred years. The? con
dors' homes seem just suited for
birds so ugly and fierce. They build
no nests, but the female selects some
hollow in the barren rock that shall
be large enough to shelter her from
the strong winds while she is hatch
ng her eggs. Here, in the midst - of
a dreadful desolation, the ugly little
condors begin their cries for food, and
after they are six weeks old, begin
attempting to use their wings. The
parents manifest the only good traits
they possess in their care for their
young, feeding ami training them to
fly, so that in a few months they are
alile to hunt for themselves, after the
grim fashion of their elders.

nerve, hon' and muscle is made

Overdoing ths Lacd.
M Makes are pilt'd up mountain
higli in all kinds of business; and one
of those to which many farmers are
addicted is the expecting of too much
from their land. Because a field has
done exceedingly well with a certain
crop this year many a man confi
dently replants it to the same thing
for another season without having
done anything w hatever to recuper
ate its partially exhausted fertility.
If it fails to do as much for him next
year as did this the blame is attached
to everything else under the sun ex
cept the fact that the land is not as
sisted to do what is expected of it
It is hardly necessary to say that this
is a policy which will not "work."

PROTECTION FOR CRANKS
NO MORE PERPETUAL MOTION
Why thf OoTernment Stopped Taking
tha of Certain Penoni -It No
Longer Allow irank to Wait Their
TheUuitod Slates Tatent Office is a
liberal institution, and will grant patents
for almost any thing or idea that can ba
conceived of, if the applicant can bIiow
originality of invention ; but it will no
longer crant patents on claims or specifi
cations for perpetual motion machines.
The Pateut Office until recently has
issued yearly a grist of patents for per
petual motion machines. It has finally
cotne to the conclusion that there is some
thing more in this than takingthe money
of cranks in fact, that credulous per
sons were being systematically robbed by
alleged inventors of perpetual motion,
who Rot out their patents only to deceive
innocent persons. Until three years ago
it was customary to take "first fees" ($15)
from the perpetual motion cranks as well
ns from all other would be inventors.
Then in course of time a letter was sent
to the perpetual motion applicant telling
him that his claim was based upon an ir
rational principle f .id that he must fur
nish a working n odel. Of course that
was the end of the application. The
model never came, and the fee remained
in the treasury.
About three years ago Principal Ex
aminer 'William L. Auginbaugh went to
the Commissioner and suggested that, as
rejection of the perpetual motion claim
was inevitable, it would be fairer to re
fuse the first fees f the claimants and
to send them a circular immediately upon
the tiling of the- applications telling
them that no consideration would bo
given their paper " ntil a working model
was filed. This c .rse has been pursued
ever since. But r teatedly has the dis
coverer of perpetu 1 motion been indig
nant at the rejection of his tendered feo.
One way that has been adopted by the
cranks to get around the rule intended
for their benefit is to drop the claim of
perpetual motion and put in the drawings
for a "motor." Notwithstanding th
policy of, the Patent Office to save time
and money for people, at least two or
three claims of this character are put in
Not long ago a Kansas man claimed to
have set up the perpetual motion ma
chine, and to ha e it in operation at his
home. He wrote to the Patent Office to
know if the affidavit of Senator Plumb
would be accepted instead of the working
model as the basis for a patent The ex
aminer felt obliged to refuse.
Sometimes the perpetual motion in
ventor appears with a pocketful of beaw
ings aud coanec ous which he asks the
examiner to accept as evidence that he
has solved the problem; but the exami
ner insists that he must see the perpetual
m-.tion before ho grants the pateut.
Last summer a New York lawyer
named Todd came all the way to Wh
ington with parts of a machine and In I
quite a controversy with th Office n
cauise the patent was refused. !!' in
sisted that he had seen the u.;ici :i- ' 1
operation; that it was running ila.. al" r
day, and keeping a cider pre;-.s j; ir 1
Imot. There was no deviating fru.14 t..
lulp. The? lawyer went back io New Ycv':,
raj ing that he would produce t!i m .
chine. Uv was not seen again u., id
patent centennial celebrat'on, when :i"
reminded the examiner of tit? case, and
told how lie had been fooled. At the
time of mal ing application the luv.r'i'

To. Preierre Beauty.
Ueauty that is lasting and really worth
while is more or less dependent upon a
pood circulation. While a good circula
tion is made possible by correct pose,
pioper breathing, and the judicious care
of the skin, something elss is also neces
6a ry to insure the normal quality and
activity of the blood; and this some
thing consists in a combination of sun
shine nnd exercise in the open air. Town
dwellers have too little of these blessings,
partly from circumstances and partly
lack of wit. Exercise is the most im
portant natural tonic of the body. With
out it there can be no large, compact,
muscular frame. It is as essential to
physical development as air is to life, and
an imperative necessity in the mainten
ance of beauty. To keep the complexion
and spirits good, to preserve grace,
strength, and ability of motion, there is
no gymnasium bo valuable as the daily
round of house work, no exercises moro
beneficent in their results than sweeping,
dusting, making beds, washing dishes,
nnd the polishing of silver and brass.
One year of such muscular effort within
doors, together with regular exercise in
the open air, will do more for a woman's
complexion than all the lotions and
pomades that ever were invented. Per
liaps tho reason why house work does so
much more for women than games, is
the fact that exercise which is immedi
ately productive cheers tho spirit. It
pives women the courage to go on with
living, and makes things seem really
worth while. Dr. Louise Fiske Brj son.

Looking out over thj many homes of this country, wc iee thousands
of women' wearing away their lives in household drudgery that might bi
materially lessened by the use of a few cakes of SAPOL10. If an hour
is saved each time' a cake is used, if one less wrinkle gathers upon the face
because the toil is lightened, she must be a foolish woman who would
hesitate to rrftke the experiment, and he a churlish husband who would
grudge the few cent: which it costs.
If your grocer sends you anything in place cf SAPOL10, send it
back and insist upon havL.g just what you ordered. SAPOL10 always
gives satisfaction. On fl,ors, tables, and painted work it acts like a
charm. For scouring pots, pans, and metals it has no equal. Everything
shines after it, and even the children delight in iring it in their attempts
