Chicago Employers say That They
Don't Want Him Around.
Men in business have formed such
an antipathy to tho nian who uses
perfumery or -has the barber put any
thing on his hair that 'has any fra
grance in it that many men who don't
knOW this are unable to coinlect with
good jobs which inight be thevil's .if
they did know It.
Mven the women have becone af.
foeted. 1In mllore thaIn one hicago
business -house the stenographers have
been askjed to forego dousing a lot
of scent upon their haindkerlchies or
blouses. A slight trace is not dis
agreeable, but. in sonle cases even
the smallest vestige is objected to.
This applies to t,he women. To
the men the slightest shadow of it is
It was only the other day the man
ager of a house in which many men
are employed was exanting an appli
cant for a position. 1he applicant
was neatly dressed, had a pleasing al
though a slightly bold appearance and
talked correctly and intelligently, al
though a trille egotistically.
Suddenly the manager, who had
ieemed to be weighing in his mind
the merits and demerits of the appli
cant, said:
"sorry, but we can't use you."
"Can you tell me why'."' asked the
applicant; "perhaps If I were given
an opportunity--"
Tho imnallger cut hifim short.
"That's just the trurble,"l he said.
"You were given an opportuity and
you rejected it."
"hut I've been given no opportun
ity," said the inan, 1101 knowing what
"Yes, you were," answered the man
aLger, "you've been given an oppor
tunity to 'over yourself with cheap
gierfuimery and of that chance you
most -generously .have availed your
oolf. We can't use walking perfume
Others managers took the same
view. They sat-l that the day of the
scented business man had gone by.
They also said that their experience
taught them that the man who used
perfumery was liliely to spend in
thir.Adii about himself time that he
ought to give to ihis work.-Chi,caro
Winter Work for Automobile.
h'lire is a farmer out. in Walworth
County who lilt upon a novel way of
making the money he has tied up in
an automobile. He uses the machine
in the sumnier. but when winter sets
in there is littlo 'pleasure or profit
in auton'biling and most of the gaso
leno buggles are left standing idle. In
the case of this thrifty settler, how
ever, there is no waste of this kind.
He strips the machine of its wheels
and sets it upon skids in the loft of
ce of the farm buildings. With a
flywheel on one of the rear hubs and
a drive wheel on the other he uses
his engine to do all the farm grinding,
pumping, feed cutting and other work
where power is required. In this way
he saves the cost of another gasoleno
engine, such as most5 farmers are now
using.-Milwaukee Sentinel.
Noiseless Steam Engine Exhaust.
The gas engine is not the only of

Uufiling tank-s to minimize the noise
of the ecape of exhaust steam from
high-pressure non-condensing steam
engines are sometimes needed. in
such cases it suffices to insert near'
the engine a tank of 15 or 20 timies

A Doctor's Brother' Thought Postumi
ja Was Coffee.
A wise doctor found out coffee was
hurting him so he0 quit drinking it.
He was so busy with his practice,
however, that his wife had to write
how lie fooled his brother, a clergy
muan, one (lay at dinner. She says:
"Doctor found coffee was injuring
him and decided to give Postum a
trial, and we have used it now tot'
four years with continued benefit. In
fact, he is now free from the long
train of ills that follow coffee drink
"To show how successful we are in
making Postum properly, I will relate
an incident. At a dinner we gave,
doctor suggested that we serve Pos
turn instead of ord(inary coffee.
"Doctor's brother', a clergyman,
*upposed it was old fashioned coffee
anid remarked, as lhe called for his
second cup, 'If yoit do preach against
coffee I see you haven't forgotten how
to make it.'"
This goes to show that wveli-made
--fully boiled--Postum has much thle
flavor and r-ichness of good eQffee al
'though it has an individuality all its
own. A ten days' trial wvill prove that
It has none of the poisonous effect of
ordinary coffee but wvill correct the
troubles caused by coffee. "There's
a' reason." Name furnished by Pos

Some years ago an Instrument was
invented by one of the Government's
scientists that is Intended to measure
the force of an oceaa wave. It was
first testeld at the extreme eastern end
of Long Island, where the waves sweep
in unhindered from the Atlantic. In
smitniner a force of over 600 pounds to
the slitare Inch has been recorded. In
winter as high as a ton to the square
foot. has been attained. This gives one
sone idea with what ships, lighthouses
and other similar structures have to
The density of the earth as a whole
has been estimated, with close agree
mient among the several scientists
who have made the determination, by
different methods, to be about 5.5 or
5 1-2 times as heavy as an equivalent
sPhere of water. On the other hand,
the average density of the materials
forming the accessible portions of the
earth's crust is between 2.5 and 3.0,
so that the mean density of the whole
globe is about twice that of Its outer
part. This indicates that the central
part of the earth Is composed of
heavier materials, and may even be
metallic, which condition would ac
cord perfectly with the nebular by

One of Uncle Sam's naturalists at
Washington asserts that tortoise-shell,
which is made from ihe horny skin
overlying the bony case of most spe
cles of turtles, possesses the property
of welding so perfectly that no trace
of junction is visible. Two plates to
be united have their adjacent edges
beveled ill opposilo directions, and are

press udler tihe action of boiling wa

by painting horn with paste of lime

off after drying. This process leaves
dark spots of lead sulphide in the
horn, resembling the mottling of real

Sulphur. the Accepted Remedy for a
Hundred Years.
Sulphur is one of the greatest remedies
nature ever give to man. l'very physician
knows it cures skin and blood troubles.
Hancock's Liquid Sulphuir enables you to
get the full benefit in most convenient
form. Don't take sulphur "tabletm" or
"wafers," or powdered sulphur in imolasse.
Hancock's Liquid Sulphur is pleasant to
take and perfect in its action. Druggists
sell it.
A well known citizen of DanvilIe, Pa.,
writes: "I have had an aggravated case of
Eczema for over twenty-five years. I have
used seven 50-cent bottles of the Liquid,
and one. jar of your Ilancock's Liquid Sul
phur Ointment, and now I feel as though
I had a brand new pair of hands. It lis
cured me and I am certain it will cure any
one if they persist in using Hancock's
Liquid Sulphur according to directions.

What to do After Eating.
Should one lie down al*ter meals
and, if -so, should one sleep? Dr.
Shiile, an assistant of Baumier at Frei
berg, has analyzed the contents of the
stomachs of two normal subjects re
moved several hours after an identical
tost meal of bread and distilled water,
followed in one instance by sle2p, In
the other by simple rest in a hori
zontal position. Schule -'.ows that
sleep during digestion always results
in weahening the motility of the *om
ach and increasing the acidity s: the
gastric juice, a fact attributed by him
to the irritation caused by the chyme's
remaining abnormally long in the
stomach. He has also remaiked that
simple repose in a horizontal position,
not accompanied by sleep, stinmulates
the gastric function without increas.
