The cradle, in some form or other, is. 1 it may be confidently said, one of the v ry oldest of human institutions. Moses' little ark of bulrushes, it might i '"' supposed, w as one of the earliest ! teings of the kind, but such a supposi tion would be very erroneous. Moses' jlittl-' craft was pushed out on the Nile l.:tii0, or from that to l.Bno, years before I the Christian era. Hut there are in the I l'.ritish museum some clay tablets j found a few years ago on the site of ! ancient Ninevah. which according to j tbe archaeologists, make it quite clear that somewhere about 4.H00 years before i Chi ist there was anether infant here exposed in another little ark of bul rushes among the v.atertlags of another famous river. So that the cradle that was found by "Pharaoh's daughter, and which no detuht was only the common form of the thing made water-tight by a snuaring of pitch, was compara- of S5.00 School Competitive Advertising THis L it-Mr -RED Rl'dlyq Was seri b - fco cand B "u c h 0 Cc c s" cL-mo iv fee (A ( tlvely modern; and probably, If the light or history coulu bo twitched on tar enougn back. It would be lourid that Saigon's eiiidle, to which the clay tablets refer, was only the latest devel opment of something far more ancient still. There are very few peoples on tne face of the earth who have not evolved some sort of cot or cradle for baby. There are some, thougn, the Eskimo, instance, have nothing of the kind. When baby is indoors, it lies cosily muffled up in the bearskins of the igloo, and when" it goes out for an artie air ing it is just slipped quite naked in to the hood of its mother's otter-skin cloak. There is no cradle for the Eski mo baby, and there are no baby clothes. The bairns are allowed to be quite nak-d until they can walk, and then they are rigged out in a full suit of par'kv, breeches and boots, exactly sim ilar to those of its father or- mother, according ,to sex. With the North American Indians, on the contrary, the cradle is uuite as im portant an institution as It Is in the European nuiserv. and the expectant mother will devote a world of study and taste to the making of a little receptacle cf shrub-wood poles and grass matting, and to its embellishment. The Indian ci-i'lle assumes different forms in dif ferent tribes, but the essential feature everywhere is a board to which the child inav be lashed flat on its back. The board is padded with nice soft skins and dry moss and sweet grasses, and the comfort of it seems to be highly ap preiiated by the Indian papoose. Such U the power of habit and of inherited cus tom that the bairns of the backwoods are said never to slee;i satisfactorily unless thev are strapped down in their c radles. Some of the tribes have a form of cradle which seems to be specially designed for hanging baby up perpen dicularly on the branches of trees. An anonymous writer, telling the story of his travels 20 or 30 years ago, says that when among the Sioux Indians, he paused to knee! down and drink .at a clear little forest stream, when sud denly his attention was arrested by queer little cooing, snutling sounds up among the trees. 'He peered through the boughs, and iust above him found Ave little papooses slung from the branches, all alone in their gloi y. and amusing themselves bv staring and winking at each other, apparently all as happy as clams at high water, until they caught sight of the white-face looking at them. Then with one accord thev- set up such a dismal ami ternPd howl as brought six or seven squaws crashing through the underwood to the rescue. London Ulobe. VICTORY FOR I. T. U.

At this point the roaring of the Heppner cloud burst was heard some time in advance of its arrival. In consequence no lives were lost and the property loss is con fined to buildings. The largest indi vidual loser is probably Creorge Hill, a rancher. All his possessions were de stroyed, except the ground on which his dwelling stood. His stock, cattle, horses, hogs, wagons, house and furniture were all caught in the rising torrent and swept uown the valley. While the flood was not as high as at Heppner, the sur face of Willow- creek rose 15 feet above its normal level. The Methodist church was lifted up, twisted around and then swept like a giant cannon ball against the Congrega tional church, a thousand feet away. Lotlf places of worship were completely wrecked. Immediately after the passage of the water rescue parties were oi'n ized to aid the stricken- citizens of Heppner. The first parties which made a rapid journey from Lexington to Heppner found in their hurried search six bodies. There are undoubtedly more of the missing hidden in the piles ol wreckage above the town. It will be impossible to thoroughly search all of this wreckage and many of the bodies will in all probability never be recovered. Heppner, Ore., June 17. The confu sion has been so great here that no ac curate estimate of the number of lives lost by the tiood could be made and it is believed that all estimates sent out heretofore have been too high. Last night 1".0 bodies had been recovered ami it is believed that the tutal number ot dead w ill not exceed 200. "D0CT0KED" CHEMICALS Detected in New York Stores by the Board of Health. Investigation o alleged drug adulter ation has given the New York heallii department something to think about. Analysis has proved that the evil exists to a far greater extent than would have been- believed possible; that supposedly reputable druggists really do adulterate their ehemirais or sell adulterate! eheniieals to a startling extent. In some instances it has been found that it is not merely a case of the adultera tion 01 the drus" asked for, but of thy substitution of an entirely different anJ far cheaper substance for the one askea for. And while in the main the chem icals used as adulterants are in them selves harmless, it has been proved that in at least one compound a well known poison has been widely substi tuted for a more expensive chemical. The investigation has been in the hands of l)r. Joseph A. IJeshuee, head of the health department's chemical labora tory. The most startling: results that lr. Dephuee has obtained bear or the substitution of methyl tor ethyl aliohol in certain standard compounds. Methyl or wood alcohol is well known as a poison, and is entirely different iu its effects from ethyl or Kiain alcohol. It is a product of the distillation of wood, and all commercial grades con tain impurities, of which the principal is acetone. .Numerous instances of se rious and sudden blindness have ben traced to its use in medicinal prepara tions. Less than half an ounce pro-, duced total and permanent blindness, and three ounces have caused death. Blindness has also been caused by ex ternal use of wood alcohol, when its pathway of entrance was merely throtiK'n the lunss, and the skin of the hands and forearm. Or. Ileid Hunt of Johns Hopkins says: "Kxperiments show conclusively that however pure the preparation may be it (methyl alcohol.) is totally unfit for use as a substitute for srain alcohol in any preparation which is to be taken inter nally, and especially in preparations which are to be takenir any length of time j.' ' Havinff reason to believe that drug Kists were usinp; it in certain compounds into which ethyl alcohol entered largely. Dr. Di ghuce analyzed a number of samples of Jamaii a ginser and of spir its of camphor; fioth of them common household remedies; both of them free ly sold and freely administered without a physician's order. The preparation of ginger, he found, were all properly compounded, but in a number of instances methyl alcohol had been used in compounding spirits of camphor. This should be a 10 per cent solution of camphor in alcohol, and is nearly always prepared by the retailer. Of 215 samples examined Dr. Deghuee found 175 made with ethyl alcohol. while 40 contained methyl. That is, admitting that the samples ieie fairly representa tive, almost 20 per cent of the druggists of New Yoi k do r.ot hesitate to use poison in compounding an ordinary household remedy that any person of average discretion would consider him self justified in administering external ly or internally as he saw tit. That is rather a startling showing for an en lightened community! Of the 40 samples that contained wood alcohol. 30 contained wood alcohol pure and simple, while ten contained a mix ture of both sorts. Five of the adulter ated samples were marked "For exter nal use only." Not one of them was marked plainly and emphatically "Pois on." And three of them had directions for internal dose printed on the label. In these three methyl alcohol was used exclusively. The others were simply labeled "Spirits of Camphor." Two of the druggists were arrested, con victed and fined $oo apiece in the court of special sessions. The whole investigation was started early in the year, when Dr. J.ederle. hav ing "received numerous complaints of the quality of phenacetin that was being sold throughout the city, decided that it was time for the health department to take a hand. Acting under his instructions. Dr. Deghuie caused samples of phrnacetin te be brought from 3i:'.( drug stnns throughout (Jreater New York. No section of the city was neglected. Samples were bought in Richmond and out Flushing way and in the I'.ronx. though of course by far the gr ater nureber came from Manhattan or Rraoklvn. And no district came thrcign the riibsequent xaminati.-v.i with honor Ir.

The air becomes infec ted with the gases and microbes arising from the marshes and low lands, damp cellars, sewer pipes, badly ventilated houses and decaying vegeta ble matter, and we unconsciously inhale them into the lungs, when they are taken up by the blood and circulated throughout the system. Malaria gives no warning of its coming; no immediate effects are seen, and no violent symptoms appear until the unfortunate sufferer is completely at the mercy of this hidden foe. This invisible enemy may be following us night and day, but often the first intimation we have of its presence is a chilly, creepy sensation running over the body, sometimes followed by a slight fever, and an always tired, drowsy and depressed feeling. The blood soon becomes deeply poisoned, thinned and weakened by the teeming millions of microbes and germs, and an irregular, slow circulation is the result. This condition of the blood gives rise to innumerable and serious troubles : torpid liver, enlargement of the spleen, loss of appetite and feeble digestion, a pallid or yellow skin, boils, carbuncles, abscesses, indolent ulcers, Louisviixe, Kv., March 26th, 1902. For several years I suffered with Chills and Fever, caused by Malaria in my system, and each summer for several years I would relapse. Finally my physician pre scribed S. S. S. In all, I took three bottles, and they entirely cured me, and I have never been troubled since.

S. S., which not only purges the blood of all morbid, unhealthy matter, but keeps it pure and healthy. It searches out and destroj-s every trace of Malarial poison, and keeps the blood in such a vigorous condition that poisonous matters of no kind are allowed to accumulate, but are promptly expelled from the system. During the spring is an opportune time to begin the fight against this invisible enemj', for the hot, sultry summer days will cause the germs to multiply and still further impov erish the blood and weaken the constitution, and now more than ever the Malaria sufferer great vegetable remedy.

There are men in local commercial pursuits who advertise only when buying is active; men who ask for patronage only when everybody is determined to buy something. There are men who advertise only about the Christmas season and do not ask for patronage at any other time, and there are other men who do not advertise at all. . These are the men who for the most part have dull seasons. As a fact they have few seasons that are not more or less dull. The non-advertiser fails to get the cream of any business at any time. His more alert competitor gets it all the time. Nor does intermittent ad vertising bring the results desired. To make success a certainty advertising should be continuous, should know no seasons except in the change of goods in demand, and should be convincing and well displayed. The man who so stimulates his business has no time to be dull. Harrisburg Telegraph. LIL'TON COMING OYEil. Leaves London for Liverpool on Train With J. P. Morgan. Dondon. June 17.
