It was mamma's wish that the play
room should be left In order each night
before tea. But four-year-old . Ethel
did not always like to pick up her
playthings until her brother George in-
rented a play for it. This tea to take
a voyage In their ship, gathering the
scattered toys for cargo.
The ship was an empty wooden box
large enough to hold them both. George
had fitted a pair of old wooden wheels
to its broad sides, so it moved along
quite easily when he, standing in the
box ship, pushed it along with his pole.
It was a very accommodating ship,
for when they wished to travel on land
it was at once a train of cars or, if
need be, a stagecoach and then a ship

ship, and at one port they take on

journeys are apt to be iu the region of
George's geography lessons. Cau you
guess what map he is studying just
At last they come to the port where
they are to unload (at other times
called a cupboard).
It Is surprising how many merchants
come to meet them and claim a share
of the cargo. To be sure, they are not
to be seen, and all their voices have a
resemblance to George's, but Ethel lis
tens and laughs with glee as the
"captain" answers them each one and
tells the sailors where to put the goods.
And now the voyage Is over, the ship
is anchored at its wharf next to the
rocking horse's 6table, and, lo, the
playroom is tidy.
One day Mr. Karr, the minister, came
to take tea at Ethel's homo. He had
just returned from abroad and talked
entertainingly of the places he had
visited. Little Ethel was so much in
terested that sue almost forgot to eat,
listening with shining eyes.
The minister noticed the animated
face and said kindly, "You're greatly
interested, aren't you, little one?"
And then Ethel astonished every one
by replying eagerly, " 'Es, sir, 'cause
I'ze been to a-M dose places!" Rebe

Daniel Webster as a lad is thus de
scribed by John Iiach McMaster, the
historian, in the first of his illustrated
papers on the statesman, published in
the Century: "As the boy grew In years
and stature his life was powerfully
affected by the fact that he was the
youngest son and ninth child in a fam
ily of ten, that his health was far from
good, that he showed tastes and mem
tal traits that stood out in marked
contrast with those of his brothers and
sisters and that he was from infancy
the pet of the family. Such daily work
as a farmer's lad was then made to do
was not for him. Yet he was expected
to do something, and he might have
been seen" barefooted, in frock and
trousers, astride of the horse that
dragged the plow between the rows of
corn or raking hay or binding the
wheat the reapers cut or following the
cows to pasture in the morning and
home again at night or tending, logs in
his father's sawmill. When such work
was to be done, it was his custom to
take a book along, set the log, hoist
the gates, and while the saw passed
slowly through the tree trunk, an op
eration which in those days consumed
some twenty minutes, he would settle
himself comfortably and read."
Young folk fond of a lively romp
will like pin run. It is easily arranged.
Fill an ordinary square box with soft
wood ashes or sawdust. Give each
player half a dozen pins and let him
run around the room six times, en
deavoring each time he reaches the
sawdust box to drop a pin in such a
way that it wHI stand upright in the
A quick run is not necessary and
might prove exhausting. A gentle trot
is best, but the player must neither
stop nor hesitate In passing the box

Soon the sun lies down In Its purple bed;

Lessons In Horsemanship Given by
. the President to Ilia Baby.
Under the experienced and watchful
eye of his father, Quentin Roosevelt,
the baby of the president's family, is
learning to ride horseback, says a
Washington special to the New York
World. Archie consented to lend Quen
tin his pony to practice on after enter
ing Into a solemn agreement with his
father that when Quentin learns to sit
on his back in true cowboy fashion
Quentin shall have a pony of his own.
Archie is now trying to negotiate a
supplement contract under which Quen
tin shall take his pony and he shall get
a larger one.
Every afternoon as soon as the presi
dent leaves the executive offices Arch
ie's diminutive horse is brought around
into the private grounds back of the
White House, and Mr. Roosevelt gives
Quentin lessons in horsemanship for
naif an hour or more. Just now he is
teaching the boy how to retain his seat
la the saddle, for Quentin is so small
that he rolls off whenever the pony
moves faster than a walk.
The president the other afternoon
was giving Quentin a long lecture on
how to hold on. Archie was helping,
but he soon tired of it.
"There's too much talking and not
enough riding here for me," said Arch
ie scornfully as he rode away on his

Resolution on Subject of Noblemen
Adopted by Mlnnoari Senate.
Sentiment aroused in Missouri by the
recent marriage of a Kansas City girl

This resolution was adopted by the up

"Resolved. That the committee on

take into consideration the necessity
and importance of the passage of a law
providing for the taxation, branding
and licensing of foreign lords and no

and fraudulent, found running at large

The Cnpld Tax.
IWith apologies to Assemblyman Isldor
Cohn of New York, who has a bill to tax
bachelors and old maids.
Now, woe be unto the bachelor maid
And woe to the bachelor man!
No time to wait; you'd better mate
With any one you can,.
For Cohn and Cupid are hand in hand
With a brand new "single tax" demand;
They'll make you pay to beat the band;
Look out for Cohn and Cupid.
There's joy in the breast of the license
And the parson smiles with glee
As his fingers twitch with the gladsome
Of a fat prospective fee;
The lovelorn swain is blithe today.
For the maiden dare not say him nay
For fear of the tax she'll have to pay
Since Cohn Joined hands with Cupid.
Farewell to the dreary bachelor's ball.
Farewell to the bachelor srirl.
When a tax is laid on the spinster staid
And a tax on the single churl.
For each wifeless man must tap his till
When they pass the Cohn abd Cupid bill
(Including our old friend, David Hill);
Hurrah for Cohn and Cupid:
"And who Is Cohn," I bear you ask,
"That he should be so stupid
To pile his tax upon our baefcs
And boost the game of Cupid?
Some Jilted lover full of spleen?"
Nay, nay! He's wedded well, I ween:
They say he's father of fourteen;
Good boy for Cohn an J Cupid!

Syrup of Figs appeals to the cultured and the
well-informed and to the healthy, because its
component parts are simple and wholesome
and because it acts without disturbing the
natural functions, as it is wholly free from
every objectionable quality or substance. In
the process of manufacturing figs are used, as
they are pleasant to the taste, but the medici

an excellent combination of plants known to
be medicinally laxative and to act most bene

Gas on Stomach
Catarrh of the Stomach
The eminent Dr. E. H. Hayes of Washington, D. C, in
an autograph letter to one of his professional friends, says:
" In a number of chronic cases, after exhausting the materia medfea for
even palliative measures, with negative results, I have prescribed Kodol with
marked and increasing benefit, from the first dose until the stomach's disability
has been permanently removed. My experience In a general and hospital
practice dates from 1872, and I am positive that of all the digestants pre
scribed in those thirty years, none in my hands has proven so thoroughly
effective. Physicians will serve their patients best interest to put them on
Kodol for indigestion and all of its distressing symptoms, regardless of the
code of ethics."
