A healthy appetite and common sense are excellent guides tO follow in mat ters of d,et, and a mixed diet of grains, fruits and meats is undoubtedly the bTh,t, in spite of the claims made by vegetarians and food cranks generally. As compared with atains and veg eatiies. meat furnishes the most nutri ment in a highly concentrated form, and digezited and assimila,ted more quick Ay than vegetables or grains. Dr. Julius ltemusson on this subject says: Nervous persons, people run d-own to. health and of low Natality should eat filenty of meat. lf the digestion is too feeble at first it may be easily strength ened by the regular use of Stuart's 1)yspepsia.

Locking round one Sunday in July upon the huge audience, chiefly com posed of Germans and Americans of the ower middle class, as they giggled and whispered or stared about them ob viously indifferent and genuinely bored, one felt it was a matter of wonder why they were there at all. In spite of the admirable arrangements for the orderly conduct of the play and the comfort of the visitors, the audience were by no ineans settled in their seats when the gun was fired and the chorus walked on to the stage, and an effort was made ta obtain silence. Those who had en tPred the building, from the left when their seats were on the right, and vice versa, were still walking about, refusing to believe they could not get to their seats without going Gut again and re entering the theater by the proper door. Others carne in late, 8.nd this was an unpardonable offense, causing in each ease a whole row to rise and block out thp view of the tableaus, which were surficiently fleeting. without any such interruption. These disturbances met ith the expressions of annoyance which they undoubtedly merited, but angry hisses and exclamations were hardly the evidences of an appropriate spirit in which to watch the calm en durance of suffering which was present ly to call forth a. dumb and silent sym pathy from all earnest witnesses. But from beginning to end a- devotional spirit. or even a spirit of reverence, never breathed its softening' influence over that crowded house, and when the doors were threwn open In the middle and at the close of the play a,ny con straint that there had been was gone immediately, and, like a. kettle of boll g water when the lid is removed, the -nt-up steam escaped. and laughing-, pushing, and talking., the crowd elbowed I.. way out. On this particular Sunday referred to the weather was extremely wet and cold. and the shivering audience Fat wrapped in ruga and cloaks and still ,,re not warm It was doubtless this fAct hich caused them so far to, forget N hat was seemly and reverent as to e-amo with their feet between the scenes spite of Individual efforts to silence h.T11: only the scenes of the Last Supper a Tad the.

William Stinson, the hour champion, clossed the tape second twenty feet back. with McEachern a ciose third. McLean wail fOUrth, Fikkeher fifth, Kaeser sixth and Doaney seventh. The official distance was Low miles and 2 laps. The itit few trines of the race lacked elements of the pace that kills until the pistol rang out for the final Val thour was then leading. closely pressed by Mchiachern, who took the lea,d, only to be passed by Kaeser on the first lap. The Canadian then shot to the lead and the men tore around the track like de mons. The lead Wail changed nearly every lap. On the tirst turn of the lap Walthour made a. sensational jump and got a. lead of forty feet over McEachern, which he held to almost the end. STINSoN FINISHES SECOND. McEachern was so nearly killed off In the final mile that just before the finish Stinson, who had kept well up, shot out into the four and headed the Canadian by more than four feet at the tape. ' The story of the last afternoon and early evening of the race is one of a steady grind, each one of the seven lead ers watching with eagle eye his oppo nents to see that no sly trick was turned by which a lap would be gained. - As 10 o'clock approached this nerve-straining tension put the riders on the keenest edge. But the, shouts of encouragement from friends and admirers among the 15.000 per SOMA present was a tonic to the mos,t ex cited of the bunch. Even -with the slow pace--about seventeen miies to the hour that the riders ground out from 7 until nearly 10 the crowd found plenty to cheer, and the scene was inspiringthat is. what could be seen trirough the dense cloud of smoke that rose from the 5,00 people inside the oval of the track. At 9:15 City Inspector of Buildings Dam reit ordered the doors closed, and no more were admitted. At that time the place a-as cro-wded almost to suffocation. The first sensational sprint of the even ing came at 9::Z, when Oscar Babcock came down off the high bank at the north end of the building like a thunderbolt from a clear sky, and in a twinkling had over a. lap lead. BABCOCK. STARTS SPRINTING. The bunch was making slow time and Babcock's terrific pace gained him a lap in three circuits of the track. Babcock being four laps behind at the time and not a dangerous rival, little attention was paid to this spurt by the other riders, but to the spectators it was just the thing to start up the roars of cheers that were almost continuous from that time until the close. Right after this, Harry Elkes was sent an exhibit:on mile behind a mo tor machine, which be worked out in 7:45 1-5. At 9:40 'Muller. the partner of Babcock in the "also ran" class. went out for a. gain and made his lap without opposition. At 9:50 Babcock started for an attempt at petit larceny of a lap. Kaeser and Mc Eachern turned detectives when Babcock had almost half a. lap lead and soon cap tured the runaway, not, however, until the entire bunch had gained a lap on Mul ler. It was a notice2Ple fact that through out the long grind Archie McEachern a,nd Bobby Walthour were always together. Not once in the last four hours' ride was any other rider allowed to get between them. As 10 o'clock approached arrangements were matle for the grand final that WOUld give honor and money to some a.nd bad thoughts to others. Trainers were given final instructiona and sent behind the rail ing. At 10:e9 Babcock and Muller, who had no possible chance for a look In at the prize, were taken out. leaving Mc Eachern, Walthour, Kaeser. Stinson, "Ale Leath Downey and Fischer for the last struggle. ON THE FINAL LAP. Just before this Babcock essayed an other gain, but Downey soon caught him. Walthour was close up, and on the back stretch passed Downey and Babcock like a flash anti went out for what looked like a lap. Downey hesitated and then cut 100SP and caught the southerner in a twinkle. At 10:10 the seven leaders, cleared for action irk the following order: alcEach ern, Kaeser. Walthour Stinson., McLean, Downey and Fischer. At 1,3:4'2 Stinson punctured a tire. but did not lose by the mishap. He had a good wheel handy and dropped into the line again. The men kept up the slow gTirid tO hi:F,O, when they began to show arlirlIEL tion that gradually worked up to the gra,nd burst of speed that closed the race as told above. The seven roen vvho finished with Bab cock and Muller will divide about $4.0130 in gold. The final score, sixty hours: ' Laps.

Promoters Seek to Hold Contest Be tween Jeffries and Sharkey. Kansas City, Mo. Jan. 7.A move ment started here tc;day which may re. suit in the bringing of the Jeffries Sharkey tight here and the holding of the battle in Convention hall. The plan was suggemed by the action of the managers of the Cincinnati hall in ar ranging for one championship fight for the purpose of paying off the debt of the building. lieveral thousand dollars are required for the completing' of the interior dec orations, and this plau has been, sug gested as a means of raising it and is meeting- with favor. There is a law in Missouri which prohibits prize fighting. and a Ft. Louis affair was stopped last week, but there has never been any great difficulty in pulling off fights here.

J., between Congressman Stew art and a. committee of silk manufac turers with the view of preparing a bill to, be introduced in congress to require a label on "dynamited" or weig-hted silks. The manufacturers have con cluded that the practice of weighting silk is wha,t has brought it irfto dis repute and almost ruined the industry. By the use of bichloride of tin in the dying process the dyer gets two pounds out of every pound tha,t comes to bis hands. This has produced a. great re duction in prices, but the goods are in ferior. On exposure to the air the bi chloride of tin crystallizes and the crystals cut the fabric upon the slightest wear or friction At first the "dyna,mited" silk has the same handsome and brilliant appearance that the bona fide article has, but as it does not wear, it has given silk a bad name generally, and the industry lan guishes. The manufacturers who insist on having their silk treated with pure dye only are greatly handicapped, a,nd they are now endeavoring to get the aid of congress. Their purpose is to, have a law passed requiring "dynamited" goods, both foreign and domestic, to be labeled, so that the purchaser may know what he is buying. THE MONTEREY ARGUMENT. - It Is Used to Bring a Chinese Viceroy to Time. Tacoma, Wash-. Jan. 7.--The steam ship Tacoma brings news from Hong Kong that the American consul at Canton has required the viceroy of Kwang Tung to suppress several sedi tious native newspapers which were be ing circulated-throughout Carlton advis ing the natives to, raise against foreign ers. Some objection was ma,de when the consul first protested. He pointed to, the coast defense vessel Monterey lying in the harbor as evidence that his wishes must be respected. The viceroy than gave orders to suppress the papers and arrest any one found selling. therm The present serious situation in Carl ton is regarded as due largely to the in fluence of these papers. Everywhere there is a strong undercurrent of hatred to foreigners. WHY IIE PAINTS IIIS FACE. Prom Pearson's Magazine. Every paint mark on the Indian's face is a sign with a definite meaning which other Indians may read. When an In dian puts on his full war paint he decks himself not only with his own individual honors and distinctions won by his own bravery, but also with the special hon ors of his family or tribe. He may pos sess one mark of distinction only or mau; in fact, he may be so well off In this respect that, like some English no blemen, he is able to don a ner,v distinc tion for every occasion. Sometimes he will vvear all his honors at one time. Among the Indian tribes is one desig nated by the symbol of the dogfish, painted in red on the face. Tbe various parts of the fish are scattered hetero geneously on the surface of the face; the peculiarly long snout is painted on the forehead, the gills are represented by two curved lines below the eyes, while the tail is shown as cut in two and hanging from either ncwtril. When only one or two parts of an animal are paint ed on a man's face it is an indication of inferiority; when the whole animal ap pears, even though in many oddly as sorted parts, the sign is one of great value and indicates a high rank. Very peculiar are some of the honor able symbols painted on the Indians' faces.. There are fish, flesh and fowl of all kindsdog-salmon, devilfish, star fish, woodpeckers, eagles, ravens,wolves, bears, sealions and sea monsters, mos - BUSY AIEN Should Weigh this Question, and Profit by a Topeka Citizen's Experience. - A lame or aching back is a. handicap. Drive the ache away and make work a pleasure. - Learn what backache- means. , Learn that the backache is kidney ache. Learn how to shake it off. Read how a Topeka citizen did it. Mr. J. R. Black, of 1005 East - Sixth street, paper hanger and painter, says: "During the three years tha,t I suffered from kidney complaint, the grumbling aching pain across the small of my back. greatly inconvenienced me when reaching and straining, as is necessary to do in paper hanging. I also had a, very distressing and annoying weakness of the kidneys, particularly noticeable at night wben it greatly broke my rest, and I rose as tired in the morning as when I- went. to bed.

Ida Duffy, the 9 year old daughter of Thomas J. Duffy of the Palatine Insur ance company of San Francisco, had a desperate battle with a 'wounded chicken hawk at San Rafael and narrowly es caped with her life. Several days ago the bird was given to the child and it has since been kept a prisoner in the yard of the family residence at that place. The other morning the hawk suc ceeded in making its escape and flew to a. near-by tree, where a piece of string attached to its leg became entangled in the branches, again making the. bird a prisoner. The little girl seeing that the hawk was unable to flay away, ran to the tree. and, taking advantage of its spreading limbs, ra,pidly climbed to a, spot many feet above the ground, where the bird was entangled. She attempted to undo the string from the tree, when suddenly the bird swooped at her and buried the talons of both feet in the little girl's face. The child screamed with pain, but pluckily fought the hawk off as again and again it attacked her with. beak, ta,lons and wings. The child's face was terribly scratched and her hands cut in the struggle, but the little heroine clung to the tree and eventually securing a. hold on the bird's legs prevented it from doing further harm. Slowly and painfully she climbed down the tree and still clinging to the struggling bird she brought it with her to the ground and placed it in captivi ty.. Then she ran to' the house, where her cut and bleeding face was promptly attended to. That the child escaped the loss of all eye or a. bad fall from the tree was little less than miraculous, as her scratches show that the attack of the chicken hawk was a vicious one. However, none of her WCRAnðS is serious, and, with the exception of a few scarashe will be none the worse for her exciting experience. DR. SMITH'S DISCOVERIES. rFrom the New York Sun. The SIM has already told briefly of Dr. Donaldson Smith's secret journeys across the wholly unknown region between Lake Rudolf in East Africa, and the Nile. He was the first white man in that wide dis trict, and a. few weeks ago he had. read an account of hLs journey before the Royal Geographical society. Among the most important of his remarks were those relating to the meteorology of the coun try. He said there is no doubt that the desert condition of the lands inland from the Indian ocean is the result of the fact that the north winds blowing over the mountains of Abyssinia are wrung per fectly dry of their moisture in crossing the mountains and then descend the southern slopes as dry winds. These breezes are the northern trade Winds. and as they cross the lofty moun tain ranges of the Abyssinian highlands practically all the moisture in them is condensed and precipitated arid only a pitiful drop or so Ls permitted to reach. the more southern lands. So Somaliland and the lowlands to the vouth of Abys sinia. are very dry. All the river's and lakes which came under his observation this year were half dried up. The other striking fact which be men tioned is that the whole fauna. both birds and mammals. appears to change as soon as Lake Rudolf is passed. In other words the fauna between the Indian ocean and Lake Rudolf is very different from that between Rudolf rtnd the Nile. Gazelles and harbeets were seen on both sides ef the lake, but the verieties were different. Waller's gazelle, which had been a con stant companion. was nowhere to be seen, but the oribi and reedbuck took his place,. More than one hundred species of birds were seen to the west of the lake and were found to belong principally to West African types. Lamsdorf Promoted.
