Worn urine the Hot Sninmer.
"A good many sore faces," said a
well-known physic,an to a iSew York
Sun reporter, "are .auaed every iuui
mer jy poisonous -sweat bands' in
hats. Some men always inalat on
buying Derby hats with enameled
sweat bands, and if tbey wear them
during the summer months a mild
sort of blood poisoning is apt to re
sult. As a man's head always per
spires very freely under the sweat
band of his hat the poison in
ameling composition is
softened and
released. But Its unpleasant effaots
seldom noticeable there.
The very
fact that the perspiratton is constantly
coming'out of tho^e particular pores
prevents the poison from going la.
«auh little bettd of perspira­
tion rolls down his face It
with the poison, and if it happens to
run over a little pimple' or a place
where he has scratched' his face or
cut it with a ra or the result will
probably be unpleasant A dozen
uny pimples will appear, and no mat
ter bow many 'blood purifiers1 he
doses himself with, his face will be
dolled with little tores until he buyj
a hat with a good sweat band. Straw
hats are seldom made up with enam
eled sweat bands, and that fact is
iiuother reason why every man should
weai* tuem in the summer. Of course
this warning does not apply to all
i.ais with enameled sweat bands,
borne of them are perfectly harmless,
but as it is impossible to tell which
are good and waich. are bad without
a chemical analysis, and as a chemi
cal analysis would spoil the hat,
euameieu sweat bands are good things
to avoid in hot weather.
Old Standards lieltiff Abandoned and
Fans ISttlle* Make Tlielr Own.
Never make an exclusive use of a
perfume which for a very long time
has been abandoned, which has been
u,ed in a former generation, for the
perfume must be of modern make as
well as the dress, says mma Bullet
in a Paris letter to the Brooklyn
Eagle. A woman who wears a newly
imported aress, with all the improve
ments and styles of the day and scents
oi la marchaie, which was par excel
lence the perfume of the last century,
is taxed with an unpardonable an
achronism, which proves a defect of
taste that mars the effect of it in all
other things. This year soolety
women made the mistake to take a
perfume which faal a Russian name.
They would ignore the manufacturer
and buy Russian imperial bouquet of the
tsar, Russsian cologne water, and
perfumes to follow and obey the fash
ion merely changing the names of their
old brands.
But there area few Parisian women
who are the exceptions to the rule, and
whose taste is subtle and refined. A
few of them make their own perfumes
they possess a secret of combinations
which they for the world would never
reveal, and they retire to some lonely
room, where they are sure not to be
disturbed while in the religious act of
cnoosmg the oils aud essences. Some
go so far as to sprinkle their beds
with certain odors, which, they hold,
make them sleep and liavo pleasant
dreams. It is a noted fact that the
essence of the very flowers which
would be pernicious in a bed-room
when fresh conduce to general well-be
ing and sleep when distilled.
Concerning Courtship*.
Hearts cannot always be taken bv
storm. Wooing may be too hasty
and precipitate, as well as too slow.
A man who otters himself to a woman
before he has made sure of her affec
tions is very liable to receive "Ho"
for an answer, when, with a little de
lay and and assiduity combined, he
might have made it "Yes." There is
an instrictive pride in woman which
makes her rebel against the idea of
being too quic.ly and too easily won.
She naturally thinks he must hold her
love cheap who supposes it may be
had by a comparative stranger for
the mere asking. Even in the case of
mutual love at first sight, she does not
willingly forego the pleasures of a de
lightful period of courtship. The wild
bird woes his mate with long and mel
lilluous song and woman feels it her
right to exact homage before mar
A Idea In Jewelry.
A new idea in jewelry is the imita
tion of grapes, both green and purple,
in sardonyx subjected to different de
grees of heat until they take on the
different hues of the green and ripe
fruit These grapes are prettily
mounted as sleeve limes, with a heavy
gold chain connecting the fruit, or set
in diamond hoop, or with diamond
tendrils* for brooches. Long sleeves
give little opportunity for displaying
bracelets and they are little worn just
now. The latest articles in commem
orative jewelry, surpassing the Enfoi
tower designs, are the Jeanne d'Arc
brooches, in all grades of elegance,
from the oxidized silver eifigies to the
handsome enamels representing the
peasant heroine in a blue gown, sit
ting on horsobacK, with the crimson
oriflamme in her hand, the whole set
round in diamonds.

The C»n»« of Tlielr Complaint Lies tn
a Olitregard of Nutuutl Uwi.
A London medical journal in a long
article recently exploited the causes
of dyspepsia in women, citiag as the
main ones the lack of exercise anil
the eating of indigestible food at un
holy hours. But when a physician
was asked about it—a woman physi
cian who knows more about women
than any five wise old i.ondon sur
geons—she shook her head. "Not
so,'* said she "that belittles the sex.
Laziness and sell-indulgence are not
the greatest causes of dyspepsia in
women. Laziness and self-indulgence
are men's attributes rather than
women's. I have found that women
are usually victims of the atonic va
rsity of dyspepsia—that variety wtuch
cones from a lack of tone in liu,
stomach rather than from any dinar
rangement of its unctions. It is
sometimes caused by a generally en
feebled condition of the system, out :s
ottener the result of their getting
over-tired and then attempting to rust
themselves by eating a bea: ty meal.
Women are so reckless in the expendi
ture of their strength—they go shop
ping for a whole afternoon, or tucy
call or entertain, or are eutei'tauiou.
without a tuought of their buuiod, un
til suddenly they find themselves iu
terly wearie. out When this ex
haustion occurs, instead of lying
down for an hour's complete rest be
fore eating an. tiling at all, they will
sit dowD to a hearty meal, in order to
rest themselves, as the., tliiuk. And
the tired out stomach is too weak to
care for tlie load of food that is
thrust upon it. By and by a dys|Jep
tic condition i6 induced, and the poor
souls wonder what they have eaten
that has brought on dyspepsia. 'Noth
ing, my dear,' I am always telling
them. 'It isn't what you eat, but the
the condition in wuich you eat it that
is making a dyspeptic of you. Just
iearn not to eat when you feel tired,
and your stomacu will take care of its
food and itself.'"
Men of the Knee Said to Be In Every
Land on Earth.
It is remarkable that Emia Pasha
should be a Jew by birth, and one of
his rescuers. Vita Uassen, a Jew by
profession, says the London Jewish
chronicle, But the presence of these
Jews in equatorial Africa does not
stand alone. From the time of Abra
ham downward the migratory instinct
has been dominant in the race
Mesopotamia, Canaan. Egypt Canaan
eneemore, Assyria, Babylonia, Persia,
Canaan, a third time, and then the
world at large—such are the sugges
tive stages of Israel's national migra
tion. ..The Jews, indeed, have ever
been the "tribe of the wandering
foot." In an age when movement
from 6ne country to another was a rare
and hazardous proceeding—in the
twelfth century, to-wit—Benjamin ot
Tudela, and Petachia of Katisbon,
traveled through a great part of
^urope, Asia, and Africa, and were
tncretfy able to make considerable
additions to the world's knowledge.
The second Benjamin and Halevy,
who explored the Lelashas, may also
ue mentioned. The existence of Jews
in oiit-of-the-tvay corners of the globe,
the Lelashas and Beni-israel, and the
Cochin Jews, has only been made
possible by the migratory tendency
of the race. The four young men
who kept last Yom Kippurin so queer
yet so touching a fashion in the wilds
of South Africa are among the latest
illustrations of the tendency. No
doubt the wandering instinct has been
strengthened by persecution, but now
that peace and quietness are his in
greater measure the Jew still retains
his predilection for travel.
Crushed the Fresh Young Kail.
A fresh-looking young fellow, ac
companied by a demure-looking young
lady, got on a ivansas City street car
recently to go down town. When the
conductor came around for the fares
ihe young man fumbled in his vest
pocket and then brought out a one
nundred-dollar bill, which he reached
out to the conductor with two fingers.
"Nothin' smaller?" queried the o.ii
cial, who had caught the distinct rat
tle of silver in the young man's
"The only change I've got," re
turned the youth haughtily.
"Can't take it then," said the con
ductor, reaching for the bell rope.
The astonished youth looked fright
"What's the matter?" he exclaimed,
as he thought of the rain and mud
"Counterfeit—that's all," calmly
returned the conductor. "Sorry you
ain't got the change."
The bell rope was pulled and the
youth got off with his girl. He had
bo change, but he was afraid to
confess to a lie before the earful of
A Terrible Tarantula.
A young lady living in the vicinity
of iolsom, CaL, had terrible adven
re a few evenings- ago. She was
,rpeariug to retire and had placed a
.reastpin on her bureau, when by the
,itu light of her lamp she espied a
aran tula close to the pie of jewelry.
ith a shriek of terror she fled to the
oom of a male member of the house
uoid and implored him to come and
ill the horrid thing. The gentle
nun named started tor her room, and
.. rriving there cautiously approached
uie deadly foe to humanity. Grasp
ing a slick he dealt a blow that almost
rucked the-bureau-top and then pro

he deadly tarantula was a piece of
