the turn-over shoulder collar of fine

quite "reasonable." The collar bor

transparent or nearly so, and looks
as if it would go to pieces in the wash.
What is the surprise of the possessor
to see the fine collar return from the

is made of white linen lawn and is un

similar manner, while wool and silk
are eminently satisfactory made over
the fitted lining. As illustrated the
waist is worn with a collar of the ma

RECORDS OF LONGEVITY,
SOME QUEER RECORDS IN REGARD
TO OLD AGCL
The Youngest Old Man In the Wottd-.
Most Experts Preath Temperance
There Is No Rule6 rL Li vig ong--NO fo

The recent death of the French philan- all
thropist, Pierre Lasserre, at the age 04 e
lo0, has prompted the Paria papers to de
rake up some queer rvords in regard in
to longevity, note 'the New York Sun.
M. L,1vte, the Dean of the French t
Acasmy, is perhaps the youngest old m
man in the world. He has turned ninety
but is still a fair billiard player and an
accomplished fencer, able to lunge and c
recover with the vigor and activity of a tit
young man. He is a professor in the
art of, "growing old," or rathert of ex
tending youth, and it would be difficult in
to find a professor with pupils that can F
beat his in their Willingness to learn.
His prescription ii, kindness, brotherly le
love, optimism, gayety and happiness. cr
'Be happy," says Legouve, "for happi- ft
nest prolongs life." Who that wants to
prolong life could desire a more deli
cious medicine? But it recalls the per- ti
emptory order to the jester, "~t funny,
sir, directly " ft
Longevity i3 a Si bject that has been h
dealt with by many authors and also
Ly many humbugs. Dr. Moore insisted
that the surest way to live long was to is
avoid doctors. But it was after he had
made his fortune that he promttlgated
that formula. It was Flourets who said, c
"Man does ttot die a nattural death; he
kills himself," Most of the doctors of i
longevity preach t+stnetance, but the tes- is
timony does tot always support their
arguments. As a matter of fact, there a
is no rule for living long. Many rules b
have been laid down but they are bur- I
dened with so many exceptions that p
they all may he condensed into the rather t
arbitrary precept, take good care to have d,
lung-lived fathers and mothers, as well ti
as grandfathers and grandmothers; un
cles and aunts tl
In the "Galhrie dus Centenaires An- t
ciens et Modvi-nes," we find the names
of Thwotas Parr and Henry Jenkins, f.
who are credited respectively with the it
ages of 152 and 169 years, and both of v
'.hounm died by accident.. All investiga- t
ti,rs have not accepted the alleged re- d
cords of these venerable Britons. Mlle. I
Jeanne Serimphau 'was married when c
she was 127 and died when she was 128. t,
l)r. Dufournel married when he was a
hundred and sweet sixteen, and became c
the happy father of two children. But f
he died when he was only a hundred and c
twenty. Marie Priou of the Haute- t,
Garonne reached the age of 158. Mme. c
de Volnerange of Metz died at the age
of ioo. She was the mother of twenty
four children. Surgeon Polittnan, a na
tive of Lorraine. celebrated his 14oth
birthday. The Irish Bluebeard, Patrick
O'Neil. buried seven wives before he I
fit:ally died at the age of 12o. The t
records also tell of a Norwegian peasant I
who died at i6o. leaving two sons to t
lament his loss, one aged lo8 and the t
other a promising little chap of nine
Coming down to more recent times, we
find that the late Queen Victoria in 1898
killed Mr. Robert Taylor when he was a
hundred and thirty-four by sending him I
her picture signed by herself. The old
fellow was so delighted that he died
from emotion. Durand d'Estivel of Ca
hors attributed his hundred and twenty- i
eight years to taking an occasional dose
of gun-powder instead of castor oil. A
woman of a hundred and twenty-four 1
claimed that her' great age was due to
strong coffee imbibed in great quantities.
A man of one hundred and fourteen
years rarely ate anything except fruit,
principally melons, and he constantly
chewed lemon peal.
Now tot up all those queer contradic
tions and find the right prescription for
longevity. The conclusion will probably
be that, if man is a free agent, he should
be careful in the selection of his parents.
But, after all, there is great consola
tion in the assertions of philosophers like
Flourens, Jean Finot and others that the
human machine is intended by nature to
last at least one hundred years.
The Invention of a Brooklyn Physician,
and Said to be a Success.
"One of the latest things in paper,'
said a dealer, "is coffins. The manufac
turers are now prepared to turn out an
article in the way of a coffin which meets
all the requirements expected from a
piece of furniture of that'kind.
"The paper coffin has stood all the
tests. It has been demonstrated to be
waterproof, fireproof, acid proof-in fact,
indestructible. In its cheapest form it is
o50 per cent. cheaper than the plain pine
boxes for the Potter's Field intermnents
and it is 50 per cent. better.
"Then. again, very handsome paper
coffins are made. You can make the pre
pared paper stock take any form you
wish and adorn it with all varieties of
mountings and ornamentalism. An ar
ti-tically treated paper coffin may be
made to look like the finest rosewood or
"It was a Brooklyn physician who
first conceived the idea of making cof
fins out of paper. In addition to being
a physician this gentteman was a specu
lator. He made a good deal of money
dickering in real estate in Brooklyn.
With this he went up into the Adiron
I dack region to spend the rest of his days
and tinker at chemistry, which was one
of his hobbies. -
"It was in that way that he got filled

the paper stock in the mills up there, he

Luncheon Time Announced by a Cat.
The noontime whistle is never so'unded
at the Buckeye Foundry in Cummips
ville. It has been discontinued since a
wiseacre of a cat has become the an
nouncer to the men of the arrival of the
dihner hour. Thomas has been a habitue
-of the engine room for a number of
years, and takes great interest in the
working of the plant. After a short
residence he discovered that a cat could
find scraps to eat if he was on hand
when the men opened their lunch bas
kets, and also that the best time to visit
them was when the whistle blew.
Thomas consequently became so regular
in his trips that the engineer began to
rely on him to notify the men, and dis
contiqued the signal for quitting work.
About 1.45 every day Thomas arouses
himself, looks wise at the engineer, and
then marches into the foundry. The
men immediately qait worlr on seeing
him, and Tom proceeds to look about
for tidbits from their lmnches.-'Cinuis

RUBBER CUJTIVATIOK CC
5lantations Increasing in Mexico and
"The tiiltit'aioi of rubber, prompted
bf the Wastefil methods of .the tiatives
mn the uppei Amazon, in Central Am- tai
erica, and the East Indies, who chop Gi
down trees to drain the milk quickly-a ei
foolish notion-promises to be an im
portant industry some day, and planters
already derive a profit from it. The old
est plantation in the world is on the
Pamanukan-Tjiassem estate, in the Resi
dence Krawang in Java. It was started cl
in 1864 from plants of the Fiscus elas
tica. In 1898 its seventy-two as'es, as
many trees to the acre, produced 6,731
pounds of pure rubber of a value of
$4,213 above expenses; Importers of
crude rubber from Patsa make light of
the Nlcara~tian and Meiicarn planta
tions; `Why cultivate tfibber;' they say,
'whein youi cadr go into the forest and get
it?' The deelare that millions of trees
in the Ainazo basin arid the Congo
Free State have hever been tapped and
will endure for generations. Neverthe
less, the Congo government, by a de
cree of February 25, 1899, requires that
for every ton of rubber taken out an
nually 150 trees shall be planted. Ni
caraguia offers a premium for the cultiva
tion of rubber, and has interdicted the
gathering of it in the national forests
for exportation. In Peru the 'caucheros'
have destroyed so many trees that im
ports from Iquique have greatly declined.
In the East Indies i-esttictiv elegislation
is gelet'al t ut, aftef all, the question
with the planter is whether cultivation
will pay. Such is the demand that he
can sell every pound he produces. The
uses of rubber are illimitable. In Mex
ico and Central America the tree grown
is the Castilloa elastica of the native
forest, which flourishes in a rich, but not
a wet soil, like the smaller Hevea
brasilietisis of iazonas. Senor Jose
Horta, of the city of Guatemala, an ex
perienced agricultirist, calculates that a
ten-year-old plantation 'will produce
double the amount expended during that
time,' taking into account that for seven
years there is no yield of niilk. He says E
that the net annual product will be in
comparably more remunerative than that
which coffee under the best and most
favorable circumstances can yield. Dur
ing the seven years of waiting, he ad
vises the cultivation of vanilla simul- w
tancously. A plantation in Mexico pro- 1
duced in iSqo. 3o,ooo pounds of rubber.
In the neighborhood of Bluefields, Ni
caragua, there are some promisin- plan
tations. Current expenses are light, for
labor is cheap and the trees require little
care. But cash and patience are needful a
for success. Our Department of Agri
culture, it is worthy of note, is preparing f

At one time Cahaba was one of the
most important places in Alabama, be- n
sides, the State Capital. Its population V
was made up of rich planters and slave- n
holders. Its situation is at the con
fluence of the Cahaba and Alabama
Rivers, and it was not only a wealthy S
place, but also one of the most beautiful
in the State.
The owners of planations and the rich a
traders lived in baronial style, their
rhouses being of the architecture of the
South at that day with large halls and
rooms, and verandas occupying almost
as much space as the rooms themselves.
Extensive grounds surrounded each and
flowers bloomed in profusion, while
magnolias, oaks and cedars were found
in abundance. Blooded horses neighed I
and pranced in and about the stables and
cocks strutted in the barnyards.
The- capital had been moved before
the Confederacy was born, and when the
war was over the few men who had any
money left tried to start up business
e and put new life into the old place, but
could not. A few years later even the
county seat was transferred to Selma, and
Cahaba was dead. Some wealthy men
tore down their houses and had them re
built in Selma, and soon the few re
maining houses were left tenantless.

"White is, of course, still the prevail
. ing color for painting flagpoles," said
s a flagpole man, "but you see nowadays
a more colored flagpoles than you used to,

Scolored flagpoles pretty well. White is,

t, a tlagpole. The white pole seems to
Sstand up more mast-like and defiant, but
e the colored pole is more picturesque.
"The poles that thus far have been
painted in other colors than white have
r most of them been painted red, a terra
cotta red. And in my judgment this
u deep red is a pretty good color for a
f flagstaff. Red is a good color to stand
exposure; it shows wear less than white
e does, and so people paint 'em red.
r "As to green, that I must say seems
at first like an odd and inappropriate
a color for a flagstaff surmounting a build

g may be a dignified and sightly object,

y to a green pole, namely, it shows off
. the gilt top-piece, if there is one, to fine
- advantage. I have in mind one dark
s green pole upon the summit of which,

In Scio, near Rochester, N. Y., lived
an old spinster named -Sprague. Her
sole possessions were supposed to be
her meager store of household furni
ture and a cat. A few weeks ago the
life of the cat, which was threatened
by several dogs, was saved by a boy
named Rufus Sprague, a distant rela
tive. Miss Sprague told the boy that
when she died she would make him
her heir and leave him the bed she
slept in. A few days ago she died.
Rufus claimed the bed. In it he found

Bendigo.- perhaps the most famous
of Australian gold fields, is preparing
to celebrate its jubliee by holding a
mining exhibition. It was in October,
1851, that the first nuggets were found
by an old shepherd on the spot where
Golden square now stands. Since then
Bendigo has contributed 17,169,680
ounces to the gold output of the world.
The old shepherd uwas a pugnacious
and quarrelsome person, hence he was
christened by his comrades "Bendigo,"
the name of the most renowned Eng
lish prize fighter of the period.

From time immemorial the roase ge
ranium has occupied a pranminent place
in popular favor. Our grandlmothers
have been known to strew the fra
grant leaves among their lingerie, bult
few know of the culinary value of this
humble plant. The next time you are
making crab-apple jelly try this re
ceipt with a few glasses: Have the
geranium leaves washed to free them
from any possible parasites. Then,
just before pouring the hot jelly into
the glasses, throw a small leaf into
the bottom of each glass. It may be
allowed to remain until the jelly is
used and will not spoil it in any way.
The result is an indescribable flavor
which improves the Jelly immensely.
Sometimes when baking a cake line an
earthen plate w.,h the geranium leaves
and turn the hot cake out upon them,
leaving it there until quite cold. The
steam absorbs the fragrance from the
leaves, giving the cake the daintiest
possible flavor, that suggests nothing
so much as the odor of a La France
