Are du to Indigestion. Ninety-nine
of everyone hundred people who have
heart trouble can remember when it
was simple indigestion. It is a scien
tific fact that all cases of heart dis
ease, not organic, are not onjy trace
able to, but are the direct result of
indigestion. All food taken into the
stomach which fails of- perfect, diges
tion ferments and swells the stomach,
puffing it up against the heart. This
Interferes with the actios of the heart,
and in the course of time that delicate
but vital organ becomes diseased.

Mrs. Lorlng Nichols of Perm Yan. N. Y.,
writes: Aftsr eating, my food would distress
me by makine my heart palpitate and t would
b-cnme very weak. Finally I got a bottle of
Kodol and it cave me immediate relief. After
usine a few bottles I am cured.
Kodol cures indigestion, dyspepsia
and all stomach disorders, and gives

FOR THE CHILDREN
A Llvtnc Paper Cutter.
The following story is told by a South
African paper: "Au Indian rajah who
had learned the English language after
a Jaehlon frequently visited some years
ago the viceroy of Calcutta and on one
occasion borrowed of the latter u copy
of the Edinburgh Review, which he
happened to see lying on the table.
When be . returned the magazine, the
viceroy uked him if he had found any
thing Interesting in it. 'Oh, yes,' he re
plied; 'many beuutiful things, but also
many disconnected articles. See here.
This begins with "Hunting the Orang
outang," does It not? And now turn
over the page, and here you have "The
History of Mary Stuart." ' The vice
roy laughed, lie perceived that the ra
jah had attempted to read the book
without cutting the leaves. He accord
ingly took from his table a beautiful
Ivory paper cutter, explained its use to
his visitor and made him a present of
It. About a year after this occurrence
the vh-eroy saw a gaj company enter
ing the court and In the center of it the
rajah seated on a young elephant. No
sooner did he see the viceroy than he
cried: 'lo you happen to have an
uncut copy of the Edinburgh Review?
If so, please toss it to me.' The vice
roy threw out the magazine. It was
caught by the elephant, who placed it
between his tusks, which had been
wrought into elegant paper cutters,
even including carved handles, .and
quickly cut open the leaves, after which
i the kuowing animal passed the Review
t back to the surprised viceroy. The ra
jah then dismounted and said to the
viceroy as he pointed to the elephant:
'He is yours. I return you the paper
Goethe and the China.
One day when the poet Goethe was
a very little boy, living in a very old
fashioned house in Frankfurt, Germa
ny, his mother had bought many fine
pieces of crockery at a fair and, a few
commoner bits for the children to play
with. Across the . street lived some
.young men . who were great friends
with the little, boy, and one, day when
he-was playing pn his mother's high,
latticed porch and they were, sitting on
theirs across the street they tensed him
to . throw some of his dishes over to
them. Of course, as he was such a lit
tle boy, the bits of crockery fell far
short of the other side, but made a tine
racket on the hard paving stones be
low. At each crash the mischievous young
men across the street clapped and en
couraged tdin.to keep on. Needless to
say, his mother was not at home.
Presently when his own small store of
wares was exhausted he ran back, ex
cited by the applause, and brought out
piece after piece of his mother's newly
purchased treasures. Everything that
his little arms could carry went over
the latticework into the deserted
street below. The mischievous men
across the street did not wait to see
what happened when little Goethe's
mother returned, but they often
laughed over the costly prank with the
great poet when he had grown to be a
Hon They Catch Beara In It tin a I a.
A gentleman was once making inqui
ries in Russia about the method of
catching bears in that country. He
was told that to entrap them a pit was
dug several feet deep, and after cover
ing it over with turf, leaves, etc., some
food was placed .on top. The bear if
tempted by the bait easily fell Into the
snare. "But," he added, "if four or five
happen to get In together they all get
out again." "How is that?" asked the
gentleman. "They fornTa sort of lad
der by stepping on each other shoul
ders and so make their escape." "But
how does the bottom one get out?"
"Ah, those bears, though not possessed
with a mind and soul such as God has
given to us, yet can feel gratitude, and
they won't forget one who has leen
the chief means of procuring their lib
erty. Scampering off, they fetch the
branch of a tree, which they let down
to their poor brother, enabling him
speedily to join them in the freedom
which they enjoy." Sensible lears, we
should say, are a great deal better than
some people that we hear about who
never help anybody but themselves.

There Is a little maiden
Who has an awful time;
She has to hurry awfully
To get to school at nine.
Ehe has an awful teacher;
Her tasks are awful hard:
Her playmates all are awful rough
When playing In the yard.
She has an awful kitty.
Who often shows her claws:
A dog who jumps upon her dress
With awful muddy paws.
She has a baby sister
With an awful little nose.
With awful cunning dimples
And such awful little toes.
She has two little brothers,
' And they are awful boys;
With their awful drums and trumpets
They make an awful noise.
Do come. I pray thee, common sense.
Come and this maid defend.
Or else I fear her awful life
Will have an awful end.

PANGER IN THE HIGH DIVE.
Deafness a Frequent Injury Co
- Those Not Initiated.
"Except for those who have an espe
cial aptitude for it and they are few
high diving is a dangerous pastime to
indulge in," said a diving expert the
other day. "A good diver may occa
sionally lose his balance, but, being
generally cool headed, he can regain it,
or at any rate sullicieutly so as to pre
vent injury to himself.
"In the majority of cases deafness is
the most frequent injury inflicted by
diving. The cause of this is that few
llnd it easy to drop the head sufficiently
to get it well between the arms. The
result is they receive some tremendous
blows on the head, and if the water is
struck a bit sideways the ear gets most
of the concussion, and the result will
frequently be a rupture of the mem
brane of the tympanum. A good pre
ventive for such an accident is to place
in the ears a little medicated wool or
cotton dipped in oil.
"Another injury to health caused fre
quently by diving arises from getting
large quantities of water Into the lungs.
The extent of the harm done in cases
of this sort depends on the condition of
the water as to its cleanliness. I have
pften seen boys, for Instance, dive fnto
water at places where It was absolute
ly filthy from the evacuation of drain
age into it. The danger to health, es
pecially to those with not overstrong
constitutions, can readily be seen.
"The higher the dive the longer, of
course, will be the duration under wa
ter, Now, an inexperienced diver is
rarely able to hold his breath under
water for more than a second or two
at a time, and if the dive is an unusu
ally high one he will In nine cases out
Of ten give up the struggle in trying t
retain his breath and invariably, too,
Just before his head reaches the sur
face. The result not infrequently is
that the water that has escaped into
his lungs and stomach is far more than
is good for him, and to many it is posi
"The best thing I know of to bring
one quickly to the surface in high div
ing is to have a piece of cork fastened
under each armpit. Corks weighing
four ounces each are sufficiently strong
in buoyancy for a man of loO pounds
in weight. There are many devices by
which the corks can be kept secured
under the armpits, l'erhaps the sim
plest is to sew each cork into a tight
fitting canvas or cotton bag and then
again sew each bag on to the bathing
suit by a couple of strands, allowing
the strands to run over the shoulders.
"Those with weak hearts," the expert
added, "cannot be too strongly advised
against high diving. The spring, the
rush through space, the break and the
entering and cleaving of the water are
altogether too exciting for weak hearts,
and especially so in cold weather."
A Sllser's Last IVIah.
A Greek died in the small town of
Caracal, having always lived on the
alms of his compatriots. Before dying
he made his wife swear that she would
bury him in the dirty old overcoat
which he wore every day. The poor
woman had to ask the Greeks of
Caracal to help her to provide the costs
of the funeral. A good hearted Greek
went to see her In her nllliction and,
pointing to the body, said he would
give her a better coat to bury the man
in. Then she told him of the dead
man's last wish. The Greek, whose
suspicions were awakened, told her
that she should certainly not part with
the body before she had well examined
the coat, for there must le some par
ticular reason for the request. The
widow unpicked the lining of the over
coat and found ,000 francs in bank
notes which the miser wished to take
Into the grave with him.
The General's None,
Like Cyrano de Bergerac, General B.
of the regular army was possessed of a
nose which excited curiosity. If not
comment, wherever he appeared. At
one of the hops given at the post the
dancers wore fancy dress and masks.
The general's partner chanced to be a
vivacious young thing who had never
met him before. Nor was she any the
wiser as to his identity when, follow
ing the custom at mask balls, he re
moved the covering from his face. . Ills
partner followed suit, and her prattle
ceased for awhile. Then she remarked,
reproachfully: "Oh, but it isn't fair!
You haven't taken off your nose!"

The Ruling: Passion.
The prospective heirs of the dying
miser come silently into his sick room.
The physician is seated by the side of
the patient, a finger on his pulse.
"How is our dear uncle today, doc
tor?" ask the prospective heirs.
"There Is small change in his condi
tion," whispers the doctor.
The dying miser rouses himself by
a supreme effort. "Small change?"
he gasps. "Put it In my pocket!"
