Irley JBrooks, one of the most bril- t Englishmen of his time, assocl- jed with Thackeray and the famous fcrk tmon in the editorial manage fat of Punch, had- a mind tilled with Ktry and he often wrote admirable 6 nes hlmselfi But he had no knowl fee of or love for music.

' ' ' " Teheran Has Twelve Gateways. ' "At the distance, Teheran, built In great pmt of the mud on which it stands, Is only distinguished from the surroiiiiiiing plain by the green trees of Its many gardens," writes Ella C. Sykes in "Persia and Its People," "but as the traveler gets nearer he will see the outline of the constellated city wall and the tiled domes and minnrets of mosques. He will enter, the town by a grandiose gateway adorned with glazed bricks In patterns, the prevail ing tones being blue and yellow, re lieved with block and white, the whole giving a touch of splendor to its squalid surroundings. "These gntewuys are 12 In number; some are adorned with the exploits of Rustuin, the Hercules and knight-errant of Persia, and others depict the Persian solder of today all of them, however, look best at a distance, and do not bear a close examination." WHERE APPEAL IS USELESS Pantomime Followed Drama. 'Pantomime', one of the simplest forms of dramatic nrt, was not origin ated until the drama Itself had been established for over 500 years. The latter was the Invention of the Greeks, but the pantomime was a purely Ro man Idea. Two aspiring actors; one of whom was afflicted with throat trouble. Pylndes and Buthyllus, gave the first performance of this kind In the year '12 B. C. It was only a make-shift on their part because of the Illness of one of the performers, but their audience was so delighted that they continued with the production of the wordless drama. Crowded Orchard. PrmV L. C. Corbett of the United States Department of Agriculture says he found In England a specimen of intensive fruit culture the like of which he has never encountered be fore. Apple trees are planted In rows 14 feet ajiart. Between these are plum trees flanked by gooseberries and cur rant bushes. The growth is so dense that the work of cultivation must be done by hand, and spraying Is done by the Installation of a permanent .piping system. The company which owns this farm maintains a preserv ing plant for making jam when the fresh fruit cannot be profitably dis posed of. It Works Both Ways. "The vulgarity of wealthy people Is so much more noticeable than that of the poorer ones." 'Yes, and at the same time It's go much .more endurable."

Savings Deposits East Florida Savings & Trust Company Ancients Seem to Have Had the Right Idea In Their Attitude Toward . Inevitable Death. What happens to us when we die? What does It feel like to pass out of this earthly life and enter the un known beyond? An interesting answer comes from a group of physiologists. Their observa tions are thut, in the dying hour, the sense of smell is the first to fail. Then, In order, the dying person loses taster sight, touch, hearing. . Thus the five senses pass. Outward ly, deoth seems to have taken place. But how about the sixth sense con sciousness? Muiiy medical men be lieve the brain is conscious, sometimes, us long ns 20 minutes after the five senses are gone. Everyone has heard of people who bud visions of angels, music und a flood of briglit light, in the moment of passing from the materlul world. Why fear denth? Life is only a journey, death only a change. The ancients contemplated death without fear, and met It with Indifference. They accepted It as Inevitable,' hence never raised altars to It as they did to things that might change misfortune, fever, volcanic eruptions or the god of ruin. They recognized that there was no use In appealing to death, the Great Adventure. Cincinnati Post. SERGT. T. B. CRAWLEY Sergt. Theodore B. Crawley, U. S. M.

KEEP URIC ACID ' OUTJF JOINTS Tells Rheumatism Sufferers to Eat Less Meat and Take Salts. Rheumatism is easier to avoid than to cure, states a well-known authority. We are advised to dress warmly; keep the feet dry; avoid ex posure; teat less meit, but drink plenty of good Water. ' Rheumatism is a direct result of eating too much meat and other rich foods that produce uric acid which is absorbed into the blood. It is the function of the kidneys to filter this acid from the blood and cast it out in the urine; the pores of the skin are also a means of freeing the blood of this impurity. In damp and chilly cold weather the skin pores are closed thus forcing the kidneys to 'do double work, they become weak and Iuggish and fail to eliminate the the uric acid which keeps accumulating and Circu lating through the system, eventually settling in the joints and muscles, causing stiffness- soreness and pain called rheumatism. At the first twinge of rheumatism get from any pharmacy about four ounces of Jad Salts; put a tableapoon ful 'in a glass of water and drink be fore breakfast each morning for a week. This is said to eliminate uric acid by stimulating the kidneys to normal action, thus ridding the blood of these impurities. Jad Salts is inexpensive, harmless and is made from the acid of grapes and lemon juice, combined with Hthia and is used with excellent results by thousands of folks who are subject to rheumatism.
