Worlds Cables Made In Amerlca. t
Practically all the world's cables are d
made in this country, the first having t
been made in 1857, the total length of
the wire in the sheathing and core
being sufficient to reach from the 4
earth to the moon. When the sea Is
about three miles deep. and the ship
is steaming at Its usual rate, paying
out a new line, over two and a half
hours will pass before the cable
reaches the bed of the sea. By the
time the cable has settled to rest the
ship is 25 miles away.
Health and Cheer.
There is longevity in the sunny soul
that eases our jolts and makes our
sides shake with laughter. There is
a wonderful medicinal effect in good
cheer. Good news and glad tidings
have a magic effect even upon inva
lids. We often see a whole store or
factory or home transformed by one
sunny soul. On the other hand. we
have seen them blighted and made
dark by a gloomy, morose, fault-find-.
ing person.
When Wrinkles Come.
The first wrinkle of age comes on
the side of the cheek just in front of
the ear and its possessor is. as a rule,
the last person to notice it. Just be
hind the ear there is usually a falling
off of the roundness of the neck, and
the hair becomes thin, leaving a bald
look on the woman over 40 if she is
not careful to remedy these important
blemishes. Massage will do more for
these growing imperfections than al
most any other facial defect.
What Could He Mean?
A young woman went to a grocery
store and asked the polite clerk it
he had some good cheese. "Yes, in
deed," he replied, "I have some lovely
cheese." "It is not correct to call
cheese 'lovely.'" she said. "How is
that?" he inquired. "Because 'lovely'
should be used to qualify only some
thing that is alive." "Well." retort
ed the clerk, "I'll stick to 'lovely.'
Putting the Garters On.
Mrs. Brown was preserving peaches
in the kitchen amid an array of glass
jars, covers, rubber bands. etc. Mar
garet, aged four, watched the process
quietly until the fruit was in the jars
and the covers ready, then she ex
claimed. "Oh. mother, please let me
put the garters on!"
At Once.
"Oh, doctor," exclaimed the nervous
youn wife. as the eminent surgeon
entered the sick room, "if an operation
is necessary, we want you to operate
immediately. Expense is no object
at all." "We will operate at once,"
replied the eminent surgeon without
even glancing at the patient.
The Reason Why.
"Madam, I am just out of the hos
pital, and-" "Don't tell me any such
story as that! You are the 'same
man I gave a piece of pie to not two
weeks ago." "Yes'm, dat was just
'fore I went to de hospital."-Houston
Post.
