The red and blue warriors are train

this week the boys were a little off
eclor from their Burlington trip, but
in a scrimmage last evening they
showed remarkable form and plowed
large holes in the scrubs' line despite
determined efforts to stop them.
"Cap" Croskey may net start tha
battle as he is still suffering from a
cbarley horse from the first weeks of
practice. Day was placed at his posi

played a fairly good game. In case
that Day does not make good, Hanssen

and Tomson will then fill In at half.
Khodes will do all of the kicking, as
b has showed the best form in all of
the games. His punts are of the spiral
variety and he is always good for
about 40 yards.

DEAD SEA WATER.
Its Buoyancy Not So Great as to ctV
In Jerusalem ridiculous stories are
told of the impossibility of bathing
In the Dead sea, and It Is even said
by the superstitious that no animals
or vegetation can exist near it. The
truth is that if Palestine belonged to
any other power but Turkey the north
ern shore of the Dead sea would prob
ably become a popular bathing station
and health resort, as the chloride of
magnesia which enters so largely into
the composition of the water would
be found to have medicinal and cura
tive proerties, says the Ziou Herald.
So far as swimming Is concerned,
the excessive buoyancy of the water
of the Dead sea simply renders it dif
ficult for the swimmer to make much
headway, but If care be taken not to
allow the salt water to get into the
eyeH a swim Is both feasible and en
joyable. The Dead sea contains 25 per cent
of solid matter and Is, bulk for bulk,
heavier than the human body. In a
ton of water from the Caspian sea
there are 11 pounds of salt, in the j
Baltic IS pounds. In the mark sea 2-1 j
pounds, in the Atlantic 31 pounds, i'l
the English channel 72 pounds, in the
Mediterranean 8." pounds. In the Red
great city. The ancient capital as
sessed In this arbitrary fashion re
sented that tax after the manner of the
Rostonlans of 1773. In spite of the
humane object of the assessment, the
citizens put a boycott on tea, and the
proprietors of the tea houses cried
out in protest.
The prefect Issued a second procla
mation, in which he assured his people
that happiness was their sure reward
if they cheerfully contributed to this
excellent cause. This agreeable as
surance had no effect on the boy
cotters, and the tax bad to be removed.
Perhaps this is the only instance on
record where a cityful of people were
banded to resist compulsory "happi
ness." Youth's Companion.

DRINKING MEN ALWAYS NERVOUS
The Use of Liquor to Excess Always Develops a Case of Nerves
The drinking man wonders why he is nervous and irritable why he
Rakes up in the morning with that shaky feeling why hu has no aiijictite
fcr breakfast and everything goes wrc-ug--until he has had hla stiuiuluut or
several of them. This condition means that his nervous system has learned
to depend upon the poison of alcoboi and cannot do its proper work with
