MADE A NEW FASHION.
Good Joko Playsd In Old Days en
Would Bo Pashlonablo.
Old Camdan, In his "Remains," tells
a good story of a trick played by a
knight upon a would-be fashionable
xhoemaker. Sir Philip Calthrop
purged John Drakes, the shoemaker
of Norwich In the time of King Henry
VIII., of the proud humor which our
people have to be of the gentlemen's
cut. This knight bought aa much fine
French tawny cloth as should make
him a gown, and sent it to the tailor's
to be made. John Drakes, a shoe
maker, coming fo this tailor's and see
ing the knight's gown cloth lying
there, bid the tailor buy cloth of the
same price and pattern end make It
f the same fashion as the knight's.
Not long after the knight, coming In
to the tailor to be measured for hl8
gown, and perceiving the like cloth
lying there, asked whose it was.
"John Drakes', the shoemaker, who
will have It made of the aelf-same
fashion that yours Is made of." "Then
make mine as full of cuts as the
shears will make It!" John Drakes
had no time to go for his gown till
Christmas day, when he meant to
wear It. Perceiving the same to be
full of cuts, he began to swear at the
tailor. "I have done naught but what
you bid me," quoth the tailor, "for
as Sir Philip Calthrop'B garment Is,
even so have I made yours." "By my
latchet!" quoth John DrakeB, "I will
never wear gentlemen's fashions
again!" London T. P.'s Weekly.
THERE 18 A REASON.
The Medical Times Explains Why
Doctors Oppose Patent Medicines.
The Medical Times for April In a
moment of frankness explains the
whole opposition of physicians to "pat
ent" medicines which are taken with
out a prescription, In the following
"We will hardly repeat here the
specific statement to the effect that
In one year $62,000,000 has been ex
pended on patent medicines in the
United States. Enough to give every
practitioner in the country a yearly
Income of $2,000. In the face of such
facts as these, all talk of love of hu
manity, altruism, self-abnegation and
the like becomes chean and nauseat
ing. It appears to us that such bun
combe should give place to homely
Reliable authority states that the
gross amount of the "putent" medi
cine business Is about $40,000,000 in
stead of $62,000,000 but taking the
Medical Times' figures as correct they
represent an outlay of considerably
less than $1 per capita for borne medi
cation. The cost of doctors' fees ex
clusive of medicines except such as
are dispensed for the same period,
protAbly was approximately $230,000,
000. This is reached by allowing an
average Income of $2,000 to each of
the 115,000 physicians in the United
States. Even allowing that a gross
business of $62,000,000 Is to be divid
ed between 115,000 physicians the in
come of each would not be increased
more than $540.

Amateur Gardener Could Not Under
stand Why Seeds Did Not Sprout.
The woes of the amateur gardener
are very amusing to others, but de
cidedly real to the man who has
spoiled a suit of clothes, blistered bll
hands and lost his temper In his ef
forts to make things grow.
A young man, recently married,
narly In the Bprlng secured a sub
urban place, mainly with the idea of
'Iresh, home-grown vegetables.' Every
evening he would hurry through ills
upper and rush out to his garden,
where he displayed more energy thun
skill. But, alas! When many little
green things began to break the
ground In his neighbors' gardens, bis
awn j. -in. lined as bare as the Sahara
"It certainly has got me beat," he
confided to a friend at his office one
day. "I can't understand why not a
blessed thing has come up. I planted
peas and corn and tomatoes."
"PerhapB the seed were refectlve,'
the friend suggested.
"I hardly think It was that," the
gardener replied, "for I got the very
best paid 15 cents a can for them."
The Terrible Mafia.

tails of their ghastly work. The pulm

In Italy, and has done so for more
than 300 years. This society, which
works bo swiftly and silently, yet so
surely, was founded in Sicily for pro

rulers. London "P. T. O."

DRIVE8 IN MORTAL AGONY.
With Flesh Dropping from Hands E. J.
Coek Speeds for Succor.
Orand Junction, Colo. 8partan grit,
and anxiety for his suffering wife, tri
umphed over the most acute agony
this morning when K. J. Cook of Oreen
River, after rescuing his wife from cer
tain death in a gasoline explosion, and
being himself severely burned in the
"'t. rushed to his sutomoblle, and
while fragments of flesh dropped from
his hands, cranked his machine and
ped at express train speed for a phy
sician. Cook Is the cashier of the Oreen
River Bank and well known In business
and financial circles here.
The accident happened while Mrs.
Cook wns preparing to start a Are for
the morning meal. In order to get a
quicker flame In the stove she picked
up a can which she supposed con
tained kerosene, but which was filled
with gasoline. No ooner did the vola
tile fluid strike the flames than the ex
plosion occurred, Mrs. Cook receiving
the full force of the combustion. The
flames rapidly enveloped the upper
part of her body, quickly destroying
her olothing and burning her breast,
shoulders and arms almost to a crisp.
The explosion aroused her husband,
who, rushing to her assistance, beat
out the flames with his bare hands.
This done, and unmindful of his own
eveie Injuries, he hurried to put his
auto Into commission for an emer
gency run to the nearest physician. As
he cranked the machine several pieces
of cooked flash were twisted from his
hands, yet not a groan escaped his
Hps. Suffering intense agony he
Jumped into the car and raced at full
speed for medical assistance. Receiv
ing temporary alleviation at the doc
tor's house, Mr. Cook again took the
wheel and hurried the physician to the
Bide of his suffering wife. Mrs. Cook
Is in a critical condition.

August Paulson, the millionaire
owner of the Hercules, whose children
Orchard planned to kidnap, will go on
the stand for the state. He believe
Orchard's story, but the attorneys for
the defense claim he will make a good
witness for them.
The most Important development in
today's proceedings was the ruling of
the court shutting out the evidence of
Alva Swain, one of the best known
newspaper men of Denver. Swain was
prepared to swear he was approuchel
by Detective McParland with a propo-t-'.tion
looking to the "fixing up" of cer
tain evidence in support of Orchard's
story. Later on the defense will maks
another attempt to get Swain's story
before the jury.
The defense In the Steunenberg mur

Parland has been guilty of an attempt
io manufacture testimony against Wil
l'am D. Haywood, but was unsuccessful
in getting the basis and details of the

10,000 Recruits Needed.
Denver. "I consider the action of
the Navy Department In sending a
fleet to the Pacific at thii time as a
significant one," said Lieutenant Com
mander D. V. H. Allen of the Denver
recruiting office of the navy. "The

When asked what he thojght of a
war with Japan, he said:
"No, it wouldn't be like the one with
tbe Spaniards. They were afraid to
rome out Into the open and light us
and we had to smoke them out. Tho
Japanese would come out all at once
and ono battle would end it."
The same spirit was evinced by
o'.her men at the station In speaking
of the Papanesc as fighters. "They
have got too much sense to go to war
with us," said one. "It would be ea3.v
work for the United States. They are
not in our class."
All of the men, while scoffing at thi
possibility of a war with Japan, are
eager to take part in It if one shout 1
come to pass.
Thomas Brown Gets Five Yea .
Cripple Creek, Colo. Thomas Brown,
found guilty of manslaughter, has been
sentenced by District Judge Morris to
a term of not less than five nor more
than seven yeais in the penitentiary.
Brown was convicted of complicity
in the murder of Isaac Leabo and
Chris Miller at Goldneld, Colorado, on
election day, November 8, 1904. James
Warford was tried on precisely the
same charge more than a year ago,
was convicted and sentenced to life
Imprisonment. After pronouncing tbe
sentence to-day Judge Morris stated
that although his action would be crit
icised, he had consulted his own con
science and believed that he was act
ing Justly in sending Brown to the pen
itentiary. The Judge said that he Imagined
that friends of Brown would consider
him severe, while the enemies of the
defendant would say that the sentence
was not severe enough. He granted a
stay of execution for ninety days. In
order that the attorneys for Brown
might have plenty of time to carry on

Flow of Artesian Well.
To calculate the rate of flow of an
artesian well a simple plan is to lower
a bottle of aniline fluid to a depth of
say 500 feet and then electrically ex
plode a cap to burst the bottle. The
time required for the fluid to appear
at the surface gives an accurate gauge
as to the velocity of flow. It Is claimed
that this method gives results as ac

the pipe being known, the rate of flow
