"Just a trifle." My bat bad made a
"Oh. I'm dreadfully bored- Do make
baste and got those wet things off. I
want you to play pins pong with me."
What ou earth is that?"
"You don't know?" she asked incred
ulously. "Oh, hurry up."
And I did. Maisie is always charm
ing. I bad not seen her for several
months; and I had bad something on
my mind for a considerable time. She
was waiting for me as I came down
"Come along," she paid, and she took
me to one of the rooms where a six
foot dining table was cleared, save for
a tiny net ueveu or eight inches high
stretched across the middle.
"What's that for?" I asked.
"IMng pong." she laughed.
"No. it's Knglish. Just like tennis."
"You've rot to play."
"But I don't like tennis," 1 remon
strated. I think it's a finicky game.
"I'm going to teach you rlDS pong,"
"Very well," I murmured.
She gave me a ridiculous little bat
tledore with parchment sides.
"You don't know bow to play tennis,
don't you?" I
"IMng pong Is almost the 6ame," she
"But I wanted to have a chat with
you. Maisie," 1 remonstrated.
"Afterward, if you are a good boy."
And she smiled so sweetly that I drop
pod the battledore and went toward
"Look, you've dropped it," she called
quickly, and I returned crestfallen.
Then the excitement began.
lo you know ping pong? You play
with celluloid balls and battledores on
a table instead of a tenuis court. The
little balls naturally bounce abnormally
when hit by the parchment sided bat
tledore. My first ball went straight for the
portrait of one of Maisle's ancestors. I
was alarnied, but Maisie only laughed.
"You hit too bard," she said.
I tried gentler methods and succeed
ed In bitting the celling and almost ev
erything in the room, but in vain did I
endeavor to return the balls into Mai
sle's court or side of the table.
I have the reputation of being a good
slogger at cricket. The little balls flew
about like bullets, and Maisie boJbbed
every now and then to let them, pass
her bead. At last I had no moro balls
"Now you must gatlicr them," said
Maisie. "I think you're improving."
I smiled and crawled beneath chairs,
groping with my hands in dusty cor
ners. It was really wonderful where
those balls rolled to. When I emerged.
"Now you must try and win the next
"Don't you think we might have a
rest?" I suggested.
"Afterward," she smiled.
Ping pong evidently produced'enthu
slasts. I believe I Improved, for I almost
won the next game, and then Maisie
passed me and just crept up to the end.
"Confound it!" I said and brought my
battledore down on the corner of the

my weapon. There was a gash through

gized. "And I haven't got another." said
Mnlsie, "so you must play on with

Maisie kept on winning, and wo

"Love 40." called Maisie. f
I put down my battledore. f
"I'll give you this game," I said.
, "You're beaten," she laughed.
"On this condition," I added. Ignoring
her retort, "that as you have the 40
you'll let me have the love."
She laughed, but a tinge of red suf
fused her cheeks.
"You agree?" I asked.
"You'll learn ping pong?' she par
ried. "Of course."
"When you beat me" she started.
"Well?" I stretched out my band.
"Then you can ask me again." And
she ran out of the room.
Maisio is almost as exasperating as
the ping pong balls. King?

The Joke on the Snake Charmer.
Itcar Admiral Robley D. Evans when
a young officer was on the Indian sta
tion in the man-of-war Delaware. With
several others be set up a bungalow on
shore. He tells in "A Sailor's Log,"
published by the Appletons, what hap

"The unfortunate thought came to
one of our men that it would be a good
Idea to get the Mohammedan drunk to
see what he Would do. So be prepared
a dose for him that was very effective,
lie poured a good stiff drink of brandy
into a beer glass and then filled it With
gin instead of water. Tho ehartaer
took kindly to the drink and in a short
time rolled out of his chair on to tho
floor very drunk and was soon fast

over the floor. In the meantime flvo

These qneer people called (Quakers
or the silent worshippers of the
Almighty God have from century to
century retained their religious repu
tation free from all blemishes by their
daily practice of honesty, integrity
and social purity. History teaches
us that in olden times these good peo
ple were terribly persecuted for their
religious belief. But through all the
punishment bestowed on them they
proved to be the happiest and most
contented class of, people on God's
green footstool. Abstinence, chastity,
peace, good will and brotherly love is
the foundation stone of their faith,
their motto being peace and good will
toward all men.
Given to Agricultural Pursuits
The Quakers are an agricultural
sort of people. They own large faims
divided into settlements or communi
ties. There are different branches of
Quakerism, viz: the Hickaites, the
Wilberites and the orthodox. The
Shakers are an off-branch of Quakei
ism; they do not marry Dor aro they
given in marriage. The Quakers be
lieve in unity and holy marriages,
and you pever hear tell of a case of
scandal among the Quakers. Sjiuo
of the brightest men of America were
born aod raised Quakers, and all who
retain connection with the commu
nity are amply provided for in sick
ness and old age.
A God Fearing People.
The Quakers believe in the same
God as the Hebrews; tho same Savior
as the christians, only their way of
worship differs. When they go to
the meeting house they bow their
heads in silent worship, making no
complaints, removing not the tat to
king or ruler, THEE. and THOU to
friend and foe. They are a God-loving
and God-fearing people, believing
in giving their hearts to God and
their hands to labor. That the origin
of all sin is a lie; if there were no lies
there would be no sin. their commu
nication being YEA. YEA. and MAY,

Their Business Here
Is to establish a permanent branch
oftice from which to distribute the
products of their vast herbal gardens,
located in tho different states in the
union, where indigenous herbs are
cultivated and brought to the highest
state of perfection in their natural
climate. .This gives a better and
much more reliable medicinal mater
ial than the wild product, taken at
random in and out of season by igno
rant people, whose only object is to
sell to wholesale buyers. In our gar
dens all trees, plants, herbs, roots and
berries are planted in separate plots,
and are picked, prepared and cured In
the proper season by experts who
have been in the labor from childhood
to ripe old age.
When the crops are gathered they
are turned over to the superintendents
of the laboratories, who are expert
chemists and botanists, who extract
the juices from the fresh material, in
tended for tluid extracts (succulent)
as well as tinctures, extracts and res
inolds. All articles produced in our
laboratories are the beit and purest
that can be secured on honor er for
money. The dried herbs, leaves and
powder are above the standard in a
commercial sense, and are far super
ior to any others in therapeutic value.

A Tutor Who Maintained His Dls;nUr
Dr. - Chalmers always had a high
sense of personal dignity. When a
young man. he was engaged as tutor in
a private family. His young lady pu
pils resented his strictness, and the
mother foolishly took sides with her
daughters- In petty spite when com
pany was invited to the house young
Chalmers was shut out from the table,
and dinner was sent to his room.
He made no protest against the
treatment, but when It was attempted
again be told the servant he bad order
ed a dinner at a neighboring town and
should need nothing. When this had
been done a few times, an explosion
came. The master of the house called
Chalmers to account for Insulting his
family. Chalmers replied that he had
been Insulted by banishment from the
table. The young teacher conquered
and ever after held his place as one of
the family at all social gatherings.

strong, doing more work today than
most women at ou years. Uld Broth

He has charge of the botanical gar

roots, herbs and medicinal plants in
the large garden. The business of
raising medicinal plants was first
started by the Quakers in 1825, and
you cannot go into aay drug store in
the world but what voa will find the
Quaker medicines. Quaker extracts
and granules used by physicians are
made by the Quakers. Uld Dr. Josi
ah Baker, who is 104 years of age. is
the botanist, hale and hearty. This
good old brother has charge of the
laboratory. The food you eat, the
water you drink and the air you
breathe are filled with germs, bacteria
microbes, which spread disease
throughout tho land. Every living
being has its destrojer in forms of
germs which causo disease. The
horse has the bots, the sheep the
snulliles and hoof-rot. the wheat has
a germ-smut, the human body has
many different parasites and germs.
Consumption is caused by a germ
and is contagious. Tho Quakers have
kcown for years medicinal agents
which are harmless to the human
syptem but are destroyers of all
germs. The Q takers do not use mer
cury or poisons that wreck the body
and mind, but treat with naturo's
own remedies roots, herbs, barks
and gums, which God gave to man
kind. We are told in holy writ that
the blood is the life of the ilesh there

have good health.
