have for years used Dood's Sarsaparilla

equal to ail that is claimed for it. Some

hurt a medicine and not a machine ia a

When a Burmaa has earned a little
money be immediately proceeds to spend it
all, for the Burmese have no ambition to
be rich and never hoard. Consequently
there are no large landowners, and there
being no aristocracy the people are as near
being on an equulit y as possible. Poor peo
ple are quite as rare as rich people, and the
only beggars to be met with are the lepers,
who sit on the steps of the pagodas. Should
a Barman find himself in possession of a
large sum of money he builds a pagoda, and
possibly a zayat, or resthouse. If any money

SHE TJtAIXS HORSES.
AN ENGLISH WOMAN WHO HAS
' REARED A FAMILY OF JOCKEYS.1
Btory of the Slircwd I:flort of a Widow
Who Was Le t with Seven Voting Chil
dren How She Managed to Start the
Tonngatere In Life.
England Isn't without her well known
bona fide racing women, and she has the
only woman tra. ner in the world. She's the
last woman in the world you'd suspect of
having a hankei in? ttfter horses, to look at
her.- She is Mrs. Chaloner, of Newmarket,
and in the racing world there isn't a better
known name tl an Chaloner no, not even
the name of Falmouth among the swells or
Dawson among f.he professionals. '
She comes of Taring stock, and she was
born into and -aised in the racing world.
She is a Yorkshire woman, and as a matter
of course had an innate love for and under
standing of the horse. Her father was old
John Osborne, an old and well known train
er of Brecongin, in Yorkshire, and she
learned horses as she learned English. Her
brother is Johnnie Osborne, the oldest Eng
lish jockey able to ride.
It was a good sized family her father had,
and he entertained no line notions alnv.it
giving his girls and boys advantages he
hadn't enjoyed, lie brought them up in
good, sturdy, he nest fashion. lie had a
long string of horses, and they needed a
plenty of lads to look after them, but in
the Brecongin establishment there wasn't
an army of careless servants to carry on the
household and waste the master's sub
stance. The daughters did the work, as do
our sturdy firn ers' daughters at home,
and old John Csborne prospered with his
frugality and he nest y and left tlietu well
In his training stable there was a clever,
bright faced lad, m apt pupil in the saddle,
lie thought the master's cheery daughter,
who was such p. keen judge of a horse,
would make a guctl wife for a jockey ami
she thought so too. His name was Tom
Chaloner, ai:d a tare good jockey he w is i:i
his time, w hich v as the time of Fordhaia
and Archer. lie was almost the only one
that Fordham's ' kidding-' did not disturb
and who could b-at him at his own game.
A flock of young Chaloners, who have all
turned out trainers or jockeys, gathered
round their heart istone in the pretty flower
decked cottage in Yorkshire, but as all good
racing people go to Newmarket, just as all
good children go to heaven, the Chaloner
joined the New in irk et colony also. There
Tom Chaloner dii-d, leaving Mrs. Chaloner
with a houseful of children and none too
She made a trainer out of one boy her
eldest son, Tom who is married now, has
a training establishment of his own, a de
sirable set of pa- rons a:ul a cozy home in
Newmarket. She n.idea trainer aud jm-key
out of another, wl o is in South Africa now,
and she inado y ckeys ottt of tbe younia'T
ones, who are ind. ed the chief light'weichts
now. They are ti "orge, one of the leading
young joe-keys; Dick, a nineteen-year-old
lad, a strong tidtr and still an apprentice 1
to his mother, am two little lightweights
Phil and Harry, who have sported silk and
promise to turn out well.
She did a good c eal toward making thn I
goo-l jTcceys, i'lst liing in their minds the
whoi. some p:vec;ts of her lather and
brother, giving tl cm many a point about
riding a raw, gnlt tig them before tha pub
lic by giving futm mounts on her own
horses; giving the:n fair, useful educations,
and making th i:i good, honest, well man
nered, self respect. ng lads by her sensible,
cheerful home i:ifl lence.
Thus you see he:- turning trainer is the
natural result of l.cr life and association.
It isn't :i fad wit,-, her. She is resnilarlv
licensed by the Jockey club, and has a
string of horses in training for hers-e'.f and
She i-.a-s a trainii g establishment in New
market that comp i:v4 favorably with the
establishments of some famous trainers.
Her house, O;lori. j house, is a big, roomv.
comfortable house, l xjking out on a train
ing ground and th Bury hills. Herstables
connected with it ire of the approved New
market style', with the stable yard and every
thing about thi'in is neat as a pin.
She is a good hoi-sewomnn and goes out
on the heath o:i her pony every morning to
work her horses J' Lst like lier professional
brothers. She pirn her charges through
their walking, trotting and cantering; she
knows when to git e them fast work, when
to try them, and sh i knows pretty well what
they can do alter s;ie tries them. Shecomes
in with them, soes that they are properly
done up and her small hand can discover as
much as any other trainer s when she runs
it down a horse's !. g.
She is a womaidy woman besides and
thoroughly domes; ic, and the fact that she
can set it batch of bread to raise and then
go out and train h -r horses doesn't detract
from the success of either undertaking.
She is known an, I respected and liked by
all the English rating folk. Ia her quiet,
unassuming cost a r ic. with her cheery, sin
cere, unaffected n aimers, she is seeu at
nearly every meeting during the racing sea
son. She is out early every morning to see
the horses at work, even when she hasn't
her own out, and when the races are on
spends most of her time in the paddock
looking over the h rses chatting with the
racing people, secii g that her boys get a
fair cut at tlie ridit g and sending an occa
sional small comm ssion into the ring.
She is a keen jud e of a horse, she keeps
herself posted on : he form of those run
ning, and her own eye can tell her a good
deal about their eondition, so that many
and many a frequenter of the paddock
comes to her for her opinion about a horse's
chance iu a rae-e just as he would go to a
masculine t mi ner. She liets carefully and
cautiously herself, rarely risking more than
a pound, and the 1 ahmce is usually on the
right side with her. There's very little fuss
alnvjt her betting. If she likes a hers? she
will say to some f tie wiliiitg to do her the
service, "I'nt a soereign (or ten shillings
or five shillings as the case may be) on So-and-so
to win," or for place, and no more is
said about it till th -y settle by letter.
In the sale paddocks she is always in de
mand. More than one buyer will come to
her and ask her to look at a yearling or
blood mare and tell him whnt she thinks of
it and whnt she th nks of it freqnently has
a good deal of weig it in his dt-ision about

Peter'a Pence. ,
A ?stom of so ancient date in the Cath
cue wot Id that it runs back to the tlays
when civilization was young is the annual
contribution .of Peter's pence, or tribute
to the pope; ;One day in each year In all
the Catholic churches throughout the
world a contribution is taken up, the pro
ceeds of which are sent to the pope. He
uses the nwney for defraying the expenses
of the administration of affairs in the holy
The custom of collecting "Peter's pence,"
or "Rome scot," as it is sometimes calleiL,
is of ancient origin. Centuries ago it wa'
first observed by the English people, trib
ute then being levied to the extent of a
penny for every house, payment being
made about Aug. 1 of each year.
The pence was first a tribute offered to
the Roman pertitifT in reverence to the mem
ory of St. Peter, whose successor the pop
is believed by Roman Catholics to be. The
first idea appears to have come from Eng
land. It is ascribed by some to Ina, king of
the West Saxons, who in A. D. 721 went as
a pilgrim to Home and there founded a
hospital for Anglo-Saxon pilgrims to be
maintained by an annual contribution from
Others say the honor is due to Offa and
Ethelwulf, at least in thesense of their hav
ing extendcel the custom to the entire Saxon
The tribute consisted then in the pay
ment of a silver penny by every family who
possessed land or cattle of the yearly value
of thirty pence. It was collected during
the five weeks between St. Peter and St
Paul's day and Aug. 1. Since the total an
nexation of the papal states to the king
dom uf Italy this tribute has been large-ly
increased in Fiance, Belgium, England aud
Ireland. When Ina, king of the Saxons, in
augurated the custom now time honored a
penny yearly was the amount collected
from each person. Cincinnati Enquirer.

For buildings in cities,-except churche."
and other high structures, rods I think are
unnecessary. Lightning strikes seldom i:i
the cities compared with the country, one
reason Iiciiigthat the many electric wire-s
telephone and telegraph and electric
light are r.-idly safeguards. A building
is safer with such wires over it than with
out. In the country, however, buildings
may need protection. Our modern con
ceptions of lightning indicate in general
somewhat as follows: For the rapidly oscil
lating current the surface cf the conductor
first receives the ether disturbances and be
comes heated, so that the" interior makes
but little ditTeresc?.
A good large sni Tate is needed, and iron
rods are just us good as if not better than
copper. The old idea uf a copper rod to
earth large enough uot to liecome over
heated would I.-e correct if the lightning
were a direct current, as formerly held.
But for its rapid sit rgi tigs there must not
only lw the conductor, but surface to it and
pood ground.: furthermore, all large bodies
of metal in the building must lie connecteil
to it or, better, provided w-th independent
grounds. I:i fact there is no perfect safety
from ligl-.t!ii:i. bcc:i'i-;e of too large area
over which the ether is disturbed.
For the individual the safest place is the
center of the room on the flopr; there he is
farthest removed fron the most direct path
of the ether's violent surging. Professor

Some pei pit; are always picking up bar
gains e:enui!ie more than your money's
worth bits of goods or property, while
others again may search and search, and
when they do r'r;-l something which they
think is dirt che-ap and has escaped the
regular hunter's eye, they learn too late
that they have lieen deceiveej.and their bar
gain proves to be no bargain at all, rit the
biggest sort of a white elephant. i 1
Did it ever occur to yon that thei are
bargains in husbands and wives, ns"well as
in elress goods or household furnishings?
Take, for instance, the- plain, upright, but
rather unprepossessing man of business,
who plods along day in and ilay out, not
overburdened with sentiment, but with a
high sense of his obligations to his wife
and with a never ceasing desire to give her
every comfort is be not a much greater
matrimonial bargain than the handsome,
well elressed. poetical creature who before
marriage professes all sorts of devotion, yet
who soon finds time for but one kind, and
that is to himself? Ah, yes, the former is
the all wool and a yard wide sort, while the
latter is very apt to fade in the hard nib
bing of the world's wash day.
Also with wives it is just the same. Very
often the highly accomplished, attractive
social buttcrily, Ixautiful to look upon,
proves not one-half as worthy as the plainer
girl, who, not being beautiful, cultivates
graces of mind and heart that wear well.

Ecoiwn-ilcal Celery Soup. K
Many families of small means look upon
celery as a luxury. The greenish ball
blanched stalks of the cheap bunch really
are not very good eating, and the fine,
white large crisp bunch costs too much for
the woikingman's everyday dinner. But
the-re is an economical way of treating the
large bunch of best celery which makes it
cheap. Use the finer portions of the crisp
stalks as a relish. All the tough portions
and the root carefully cleaned are to be cut
fine, covered with cold water and cooked
6lowly till nearly the whole can be rubbed
through a strainer. Half an hour before
dinner heat this liquid celery with an equal
quantity of any kind of meat broth you
hapixm to have in the house, and then add
one pint of hot milk thickened like a white
sauce, with two table-spoonfuls each of but
ter and flour cooked toget her. Season wit h
salt. If you have no broth after your soup
is in the tureen stir into it slowly and
smoothly t he well beaten yolk of an egg,
and you will cot tnUs at all the richness of
the meat. New York Press
