IVORY SOAP PASTE.
In fifteen minutes, with only a cake of Ivory Soap and water,
you can make a better cleansing paste than you can buy. *J ;
Ivory Soap Paste will take spots from clothing; and will clean
carpets, rugs, kid gloves, slippers, patent, enamel, russet leather and
canvas shoes, leather belts, painted wood-work and furniture. The
special value of Ivory Soap in this form arises from the fact that it
can be used-with a damp sponge or cloth to cleanse many articles -
that cannot be washed because they will not stand the free applica- ;
tion of water.
DIRECTIONS FOR MAKING.—To one pint of boiling- water add one and one-half ounces
(one-quarter of the small size cake) of Ivory Soap cut into shavings, boil five minutes after the soap is
thoroughly dissolved. Remove from the fire and cool in convenient dishes (not tin). It v. ill keep well

A committee of three was appointed,
whose duty it will be to wait upon the
Bostonian, Westminster and St. Anthony

What They Are Worth to Their
Last year no fewer than 36,000 people
passed the turnstiles which guard the en
trance to the little room in which Burns
first saw the light. In 1896 the centenary
year of Burn's death, the number reached
38,000, and as two pence is demanded from
each visitor, a very simple calculation
will show what a large sum of money is
annually obtained by this means. ...
The cottage is a very humble, one
storied little erection, with a thatched
roof, and the poet's father, when he first
went to live there, would have opened his
eyes pretty widely had any "one been able
to tell him what a sum was one day to
be received for it. The place was bought
from him (after the poet's death) by a
corporation of shoemakers, who after
wards sold it to the present trustees for
Another famous birthplace which at
tracts a large number of people is that of
Thomas Carlyle at Ecclefechan, which is
twenty or. thirty miles north of Carlisle.
There is no fixed scale for charges for
visiting this cottage, but as 1,205 people
climbed the stairs last year and each
probably left something with the care
taker, it will be easily seen that here,
too, is a nice little property.
There are other places, more or less
well known, scattered about.in different
parts of England and Wales, which the
tourists often visit. Shakespeare is still a
veritable little gold mine to Stratford-on-
Avon. People from all parts of the world
make pilgrimages to the little Warwick
shire town in order to see the famous
poet's birthplace. The charge for admis
sion to the house is sixpence, but as an
interesting museum is usually visited at.
the same time, for which an extra six
pence is demanded, few persons leave the
building without leaving one shilling be
Then there is Ann Hathaway's cottage
to be seen also. This is a mile away
from Stratford, at the pretty little village
of Shottery, and it is where the poet's
wife was wooed and won. The writer,
during a recent visit to it, was informed
that on an average 100 people a day all
the year round came to see the cottage,
and as each visitor pays sixpence, $3,500
or $4,000 a year must be made out of it.
In Central America Offers a Fine
Field for Enterprise.
New Orleans Times-Democrat.
"Rubber culture in Central America of
fers a splendid field for a ■ poor man,"
said Mr. J. S. Nodine, manager of the
largest rubber plantation in Nicaragua.
"Just as an illustration, let me tell you
of the experience of a neighbor of ours
named Westerfield. He came to Nicara
gua from somewhere in New . England
and brought with him a wife anda little
child. He was very much run down and
weakened with consumption and came to
the tropics to try to regain his health. I
happen to know that he didn't have a dol
lar, and he was glad to take a job clerk
ing at about $40 a month gold. Being nat
urally shrewd and energetic he made a
little money trading and bought a 160-acre
tract, which he proceeded to have cleared
by degrees, setting it out partly in rubber
trees and partly in bananas and fruits.
In a year the fruit began to return a
small revenue, which he used in extending
the cultivation, his idea being to have
eventually a well-stocked rubber planta
tion and in the meanwhile to make the
other things pay the expenses. By good
management and Industry he carried out
the programme, and In the second year
opened a small store for trading with the
Indians. After that it was easy, and in
considerable less than four years he had
one of the nicest rubber groves in the re
public. The trees are now on the point
of giving their first yield, but recently
his wife's health failed and he was
obliged to return North.having complete
ly recovered himself. Four weeks ago
he sold the plantation as it stands for $23,
--000, in gold. This is an exceptional case,
1 admit, but at the same time there is
absolutely nothing about it that cannot
be duplicated: by.' industry and pluck." . : v

E. __. Vincent, of Broome county, N.

in the last issue of the Indiana Farmer:
"It is not contended that the dairy in
terests of this country have by any
means reached perfection. He who should
make such an assertion as that wou d
at once make himself the object of the
most severe criticisms upon the part of
the aspiring and the hopeful men who
are striving constantly to bring about a
day of better things along this line.
"But we may safely take the ground
that our profession has now reached
higher ground than it ever stood on be
fore. It was thought by me that the
limit of production had.bsen reached in
the cow; now we know thera is practical
ly no limit. Of course, there are even
now some who claim that the public had

Prof. T. L. Haecker says in Farm Stock

about $75,000,000 of butter, but she . gets
it for less than we sell our butter for
home consumption. That is, butter on
an average brings a higher . price in
America than it does in England. So it
follows that if we wish to capture the
English market we must make enough
to supply it regularly, . which will neces
sitate increasing our product by one-half.
It is generally known by American dairy
men that the cold storage room on Amer
ican trans-Atlantic lines is controlled by
the meat combine and that it is only oc
casionally that space is available for
shipping dairy products and that we can
ship by way of Montreal only when there
is not enough Canadian product to oc

that the American is indifferent on this
subject. Such is really not the case, but

MUSEUM OF LEGS
That Forms the Den of a One-Foot-
Ed Old Soldier.
San Francisco Bulletin.
Henry Curtin a veteran of the Civil
war, living on the West side, has a room
in his residence that impresses all his
visitors as a vertiable chamber of hor
rors. This is because its most conspicuous
decoration and ornament is a row of hu
man legs "suspended on the walls and en
tirely circling the room. Mr. Curtin al
ways laughs at the fright of strangers at
the" first sight of this room, and then ex
plains that the legs are only artificial
ones, and there's nothing to be afraid of.
Then he tells them how the.legs come to
"You see," says Mr. Curtin, "in '64 I
was so foolish as to try and stop a can
non ball with my right leg. Of course, I
wasn't one, two, three, and,; the next
thing I-knew I was in a camp hospital
with only one leg left. That ended my
soldiering. The government had me
measured for an artificial leg as soon as
I was able to be about, and I came home
to Chicago. ' '".
"Well, I discovered that 1 couldn't wear
the kind of leg the government gives,
owing to some reasons connected with the
way my leg was amputated, and the only
leg I can wear Is this wooden stump that
straps to the thigh. It was in '65 when
I got my first leg. In '66 an express pack
age brought me another. I sat down and
wrote the war department that the legs
were of no use to me, and, therefore, not
to send them. They didn't take a bit of
notice to my letter, and in '67 another leg
came. I wrote again to Washington; told
them I had three of their legs now that
I couldn't use, and didn't want them
to go on and bankrupt the government
buying me legs.
"They never noticed me. , In '68 I got
another leg. They, began to get in the
way around -, the house,i so then .I . started
the labeling, and. dating of each one,
hanging them }up on . the walls of , my ;
den. There's thirty-five there now, and'

THE TRAVELING BRITON.
He Now Takes His' Evening Clothes
When Touring on the Continent.

English travelers, on the continent aro
turning the tables, it seems, •in rather
a comical fashion on th.lr foreign critics.
-After having undergone many years of
censure and ridicule for their neglect of
those conventionalities of costume which
they recognize -in i.their own: country,
they have 'suddenly rushed to the other
extreme, and are now, according- to our
Berlin correspondent, not only affecting
in their own. persons, but endeavoring,
it Is said, to in pose upon other people
a rule of "tenure" so rigorous as to ex
cite general dissatisfaction and ; alarm.
Having sprung at a; bound, as it were,
from tweeds and kßic-kerboe*_.rs to black
dress' suits, and in the other sex from
tailor-made serges to low-necked evening
gowns, they are now,' we are told, at
tempting to peisuad^ the. landlords of
certain Swiss hotels~*to make similar at
tire "de rlgueur" 'both for their male and
female guests at dinner. What is more
wonderful still, "it is feared that some
oi the landlords will be weak enough
to succumb to their English patrons,
whose conduct is characterized freely as
in the highest degree snobbish."
We should be quite ready to join in
the condemnation of t if we could get
over the Initial difficulty of accepting it
as creditable. The "Anglo-Saxon no
veaux riches," to v horn these proceedings
are attributed, have many fallings, - but
we can hardly imagine them guilty of
such an act of presumptuous folly as that
of endeavoring to prescribe the costume
to be worn by other people enjoying, on
precisely e^ual terms with themselves,
the paid hospitality of a place of public
entertainment. It - is, however, not un
likely that the silent moral pressure of
the "evening dress" division" in Swiss ho
tels is beginning to be felt by the German
and other less ceremoniously attired fre
quenters of the "playground of Europe"
as acut.ly as me of us -already feel it
in this country, where nowadays, even in
the smallest hotels of the remotest coun
try towns, the "tweed-suited diner may
any evening find himself surrounded on
both sides by ladies and gentlemen ap
pareled as though for a London "at
home." So long, however, as no attempt
Is made to coerce him otherwise than by
example into adopting the same cos
tume, it.is his duty to bear. Such a trial
is, after all, a salutary one; and if he
passes through it successfully he will as
suredly find himself rewarded by an en
hanced consciousness of native worth.

and keeps in his palace a man exclusive

plentifully in this luxury. The different
flavors given to this preparation are ob

a special hand press is employed for the
purpose. "Turkish delight" is the pop

In Lithuania, a provinc of Russia, it is
customary that.the bride's ears should be

reason for it is to protect the bride should
her marriage prove an unhappy one. In
that case she will sue for a divorce, and
her plea will be that she was forced into
the marriage against her will, and on

CLISTS START OVER THE
THE FIRST SURVIVORS' RUN
Something Over One Hundred, De

Time Limit — Seven Ladles Make
the Trip Successfully and Two
Boys Under Fifteen.
Two hundred and fifty St. Paul and
Minneapolis wheelmen turned out yester
day for the first annual survivors' run
of the Century Koad club to Northneld
and return, making it the largest and
most successful run ever made in the
"•Vest, and one of the largest held in the
United States this year. Of the number
who started over one }' undred finished
within the time limit of fourteen hours,
despite the terrific gale which continued
The term survivor, as used by ' the
Century Itoad club, designates one who
has completed a century run, but the ap
pellation used in connection with the
century run to Northheld yesterday, with
out supplementary explanation, hardly
gives the hundred who "survived" full
credit. The wind at times was so severe
that it almost blew the riders from their
wheels, and all efforts on the part of
the "fast bunch" to break the state cen
tury record were abandoned. .
The run was. directly in charge of
James Mcllrath, local centurion for St.
Paul, and C. H. Vanderhoof, of Minne
apolis, and the fact that so large a crowd
turned out was due to some very consci
entious labors put in by both gentlemen
for several- weeks back in the interest of
the run. It was impossible last night to
obtain a list of those who finished within
the time limit, but upon presenting their
checking cards to James Mcllrath medals
will be issued to-all who are entitled to
- Seventy St. Paul riders were checked
tip to 9 o'clock last evening when the
time limit expired and about forty in
Minneapolis, bringing the total number
who will receive medals and century
bars to 110. The start was made from
Mitsch's drug store by the St. Paul riders
at 7:30 and the run to Minneapolis made
very leisurely, where the hundred and
fifty St. Paul riders were joined by a
hundred from Minneapolis. A small party
of \ novices left Minneapolis at 7 o'clock
in advance of the main party, which
caught them at Farmington shortly after
10 o'clock. From Minneapolis the main
party started for - Northfield, coming
through St. Paul going south'via the
High bridge.:' A dozen of the racing men
held back and did not leave Minneapolis
until- after 9 o'clock, but they were never
abie to head, or even catch a glimpse of
the main buncn. . ,•"-'/.
' it is estimated that about 125 "died" on
the way down, and many of those who
did reach Northneld were nearly if not
quite dead. The pacemakers for St. Paul
were James Mcllrath and President Mace,
and for Minneapolis "Rainmaker" Han
son and. C. H. Vanderhoof. Before
Northfield was reached the party was
pretty well scattered and the first riders
commenced to arrive shortly after 1
o'clock. On the, way down C. H. Vander
hoof broke his chain and temporarily
mended it with a piece of barb wire fence.
All along the road the farmers cheered
the riders, and some of them needed it.
There was an awful run on the pumps
and cows adjacent to the farms along
At the Archer house the wheelmen
had their dinner, and took a thorough
rest, the main party starting home at
about 1 p. m. The Minneapolis riders
did not have to check on the return to
Mitsch's drug store, most of them pass
ing over the High bridge and directly
home. It was impossible to learn who
finished first and who made the best time
except that A. A. Hanson rolled over
forty miles of dusty country. roads in 2.40
and President Mace in 2:50.
Tom Bird, Harry Hale, President Mace,
A. A. Hanson and the Mcllraths were
among the first to reach St. Paul.
The Laurel Cycle club, the Capital
Citys and the Commercial Cyclers were
well represented, the second named turn
ing out almost .in a body. Seven lady
wheelmen finished the trip. They are
Mrs. M. C. Harrison, Miss Marion Usher
and Mrs. James Mcllrath of St. Paul,
and the Misses Niederhofer, Mrs W. L.
Price and Mrs. Monteur of Minneapolis.
Two boys under fifteen also finished,
Cuthbert Mcllrath and a youth named
Callahan. There were over 600 century
bars in the possession of those who went
on the trip.
President Mace was seen upon his re
turn last evening and said: "The run
was a great success and there was not
an accident or anything unpleasant to
mar the enjoyment of the trip. Of course,
the wind conspired to make the trip down
a hard one, but coming back we- had the
wind with us. The run means a great
deal for the Minnesota division of the
Century club. Although a Western state,
we are successful in getting out one of
the biggest crowds on record. This record
and the number who completed the cen
tury speaks well for Minnesota road
riders. We have some of the best road
riders in the United States here in Min
nesota." . _ ._,

New Orleans Times-Democrat.
"I had a peculiar case in court the other
day," said a lawyer from a sister city.
"An old Irishman named Callahan had
got into a row with his landlord about
some repairs and refused to pay his rent.
The landlord was a fussy little ex-college
professor, totally unversed in the ways of
the world, and he was imprudent enough
to send word that he would have the
family evicted and then called to discuss
it personally. He emerged yelling mur
der, and said that he had first met Mrs.
Callahan, who told him her husband
would do him no harm, upon the strength
of which he had waited for his return.
When Callahan came in he promptly gave
the visitor a beating. The old Irishman
and his wife were both arrested, and I
appeared for the defense. The ugly fea
ture of the "was the alleged effort of
the woman to lure her caller into a trap,
but when put on the stand she denied the
landlord's story in toto, and swore point
blank she had warned him that her hus
band proposed to punch his head. Both
parties seemed perfectly sincere in their
statements, and I was somewhat puz
zled. I finally decided to . cross-examine
the ex-professor. 'Now repeat to us,' I
said, 'exactly what. Mrs. Callahan told
you in regard, to her husband." 'She as
sured me positively,' replied the landlord,
'that he had no intent on whatever of
molesting me.' 'But s'_>3 didn't say it in
those words,' I insisted; 'what I want Is
her exact language.' 'Well, sir,' said the
witness, beginning to get flustered, 'she
gave me to understand—' 'Oh! never
mind that,', interrupted the judge, 'give
u_ her own words.' 'Very well, sir! Very
well, sir!' exclaimed'the little landlord
desperately. 'She said: 'When Mike comes
heme he won't do a .thing to you!* When
the judge got through laughing he let
the prisoners" off with a reprimand."
Only four Cardinals appointed by Pius
IX are now living. Leo XIII is looking
forward to surviving them, when he will
have a gold medal struck to commemor
ate the event, following the precedent ot
Urban VIII.. the only pope that outlived
every one of the men who elected him.
The "inscription on Urban's medals was:
"Non vos me elegistis sed ego. elegi vos,
referring to the fact that he had selected
every member of the Sacred college, in
stead of their having selected him.
