woman has lived 50 or more years
the machinery of the body is pretty
well worn out. Stop a minute and
think how many miles you
have walked in all those
years how many thou-,

lifted how many hours
you have stood on your
feet how many times
your joints have moved'

that you have pains and
aches? Isn't it about
time you did some

Eleven-year-old Ilulda Henninger of
Hazel Hill, St. Louis eounty, is a

St. Louis Fost-Dispatch. And she Is as
ambitious as she Is youtlifu!. Already
she has well formed plans for her mu-

the best the two continents afford, and
while she is :-ettins it music shall be
her support as veil ns her study.
In execution of this plan she com
posed a waltz last summer called
"Moonlight on Creve Ocur Lake," and
it has recently been puMishod.
It is by her compositions that little
Ilulda proposes to pay the expenses of
her musical education, and her work

About Gray Hair.
Gray hair is no longer regarded with
horror even by persons who have
reached the age that entitles them to it.
Such ieople were always more apt to
be worried over the change than per
sons prematurely gray who might be
expected to mourn the premature loss
of the characteristic of youth. Now
people need give this sign of advancing
years no thought, for it has been de
creed that gray hair Is the fashion.
Ada Kehuu was the first woman in
public life, it is said, to allow her hair
to turn gray without making the slight
est attempt to conceal what is common
ly regarded in a stage career as a sign
that the end has come or is at all
events near. Other actresses have since
accustomed the public to the idea of
rray headed hen lines. Miss Itelinn of
course always wore a wig on the stage,
but Kleanora Duse plays Camille with
out the least attempt to conceal the
faet that her hair lias grown so gray as
to give her scenes with Annand a
slightly lnateruai suggestion. Signora
iMise has carried naturalness on the
stage farther than any other actress
ever did, but its last point must be her
refusal to act such a role with a wig
and her course in presenting the rather
curious spectacle if a young lover
driven to such impassioned lovemak-
iug by a very obviously gray haired
woman. Such cases have undoubtedly
happened, but they are exceptional, so
Signora Huso is probably entitled to
more credit as the creator of a neAV
fashion than as an observer of theatric

Oata That Travel.
Get a head of wild oats and lay it on
the table evernighr, first moistening
the oats. Next morning you will dis
cover that the head of oats has crawled
off the table and likely enough lias
made tracks for the outside door. TIds
peculiar gift of travei'ng lies in the
spikes that extend frciu the coverings
of the grains. As the moisture soaks
into the head of oats it swells, and the
pikes change position in such a way,
as to set the head to turxbling over and
over sidewise. The larger and coarser
varieties of wild oats have this iower
ef locomotion developed to a remarka
ble degree, and even domestic cats will
develop it if allowed by neglect to de
generate. t;o down into the fence cor
ners of the oat field and see if you can
not find a long and well bearded head
of "tame" oats that has been allowed
to grow wild. Then take It heme and
try the experiment. Chicago Record. -
