In idleness, while agricultural and com
mercial interests would stagnate. Of
a cast iron constitution, he can endure,
apparently without effort, the hardest
sort of drudgery. His energy comes
from a diet that consists chiefly of
ground peppers, beans or frijoles and
a large quantity of tortillas. He works
from 6 to 6, enjoying in the meantime
his two simple meals. In general, the
Indian farm laborers are of a submis
sive and respectful disposition. Like
the negroes of the south, they are not
far from the main building, so as to be
on hand whenever their services are
required. They usually insist, how
ever, on celebrating their holidays,
which le. 3ens their real usefulness
about 25 per cent. The holidays are
numerous and afford the laborer many
opportunities to quaff from the stupe

plus change is not apt to be excessive.

PEONS OF OLD MEXICO!!
These laborers are of all sizes and
ages but, whether young or old, all
bear alike upon their brow the depress
ing and degrading leathern thong that
makes of them beasts of burden. The
effect of this customary strap on the
shape of the head Is seen In the fact
that the peons the country over have
peak shaped heads tending toward the
shape of the pointed hat. The supply
of laborers is, so to speak, perennial.
The young muchacho receives his train

A Straight Tip
A congressman was lunching alone
in a Cincinnati cafe. Near by sat a
dignified gentleman, who casually ask
ed his waiter, "How is business?" The
man said he was not doing well, upon
which the dignified Individual express
ed regret, saying, "Personally I have
always treated your craft in this house
generously." The waiter was assidu
ous in his attentions and helped the
guest on with his coat. The dignified
man laid his hand on the waiter's arm
and said: "Young man, you seem to
be discontented with your lot, and I
am going to give you the best tip you
ever received. Get into some other
business." And he strolled away,
leaving the waiter speechless.
The Word "Gent."
At one time the word "gent" was a
reputable term for general use. A re
spectable writer in 1564 tells of "a
supper to divers gentlemen of the
Gray's inne for the great amitie be
tween them and the Middle Temple
gents." The diarist Evelyn speaks of
the "noise and tumult occasioned by
three or four wild gents in drink."
Soon after Queen Victoria's accession
"gents" became vulgar. Thackeray
speaks of It in 1842 as an "affectionate
diminutive at present much In use
among commercial persons."

The latest news from Paris, is, that

The New Food JLaws.
Notices have been sent out to manu
facturers and dealers by the dairy
and food commission reminding them
of the near approach of the time when
the new pure food laws will go into
effect. According to these laws the
labels on baking powder and other
compounds must specify correctly the
ingredients used in manufacture.
Thus, if the baking powder contains
alum or the pork and beans borax,
it must be so specified in plain Eng
lish or the goods will be subject to
confiscation and the retailers to a fine.
Only a Fe Will Benefit.
But a small percentage of those who
have made application will, according
to the ruling of the attorney general
be eligible to receive the pension
provided by the State for partici
pants in the Indian war of 1862. The
reason is that only those who were
disabled and who can prove to the
satisfaction of the attorney general
that such disability resulted from act
ual participation in the suppression
of the outbreak will be entitled to a
pension. Furthermore they must be
residents of the State of Minnesota.
Inside facts soon become evident in outside
symptoms.DR. G. G. GREEN.
JTh aid of scientific inventions is not
needed to determine whether your lungs
are affected. The first symptoms can be
readily noted by anyone of average in
telligence. flThere is no disease known that gives so
many plain warnings of its approach as
consumption, and no serious disease that
can be so quickly reached and checked,
if the medicine used is Dr. Boschee/s
German Syrup, which is made to cure
II is in the early stages that G^man
Syrup should be taken, when warnings
are given in the cough that won't quit,
the congestion of the bronchial tubes and
the gradual weakening of the lungs, ac
companied by frequent expectoration.
fBu no matter how deep-seated your
cough, even if dread consumption has
already attacked your lungs, German
Syrup will surely effect a cureas it has
done before in thousands of apparently
hopeless cases of lung trouble.
