Our hospitals are full of men, women
and children who are there for ap
pendicitis operations. Perhaps it is
true that this disease may reach a
stage where an operation is the only
recourse, but such cases are certainly

have been cured by Dr. Adler's Treat

an operation must be performed. Let

An Ingenious Accusation.
"The favorite horse of the Chinese
Emperor Tsi," said a Chinese states
man, "died through negligence on the
part of the royal master of the horse.
The emperor was so enraged at this
that he drew his sword and would
have run the careless functionary
through the body.
"But the learned mandarin, Yen
tse, struck up the emperor's sword,
"'Sire, this man has not yet been
formally accused of any crime. He de
serves to die, hut his accusation should
come first. It Is the law.'
"'Well,' said the emperor, 'tell me
What he has done.'
"'Listen, you rogue,' said the man
darin, turning to the trembling master
of the horse'listen tp a catalogue,of
your heinous offenses. In the first
place, you have allowed a horse to
perish that his majesty had intrusted
to your care. In the second place, it
is on your account that the emperor
became so exasperated that he was
actually on the point of disgracing
himself in all his people's eyes by
killing a man for the sake of a horse.'
'Enough,' said the emperor, appre
ciating the rebuke. 'Let him go. He

house had been broken into. Some
body had smashed a pane of glass in a
basement window, crawled inside and
made his -way up the stairs to the first
floor. There hasn't been anything dis
turbed in the pantry, the china closet
or the sideboard, has there?"
"No," answered Mrs. Ferguson.
"But, mercy, who could it have been
and what do you suppose he wanted?"
"I suspect," he rejoined, clearing his
throat, "that Ierdid it myself and
that I wanted to get inside without
disturbing anybody. Yo\i had all gone

Three Kinds of Lightning.

there were three kinds of lightning

other more mischievous in its character

gods, and a third carrying mischief in

ously enough, modern scientifie men
agree with the view that there are
three kinds of lightning, but their vari
eties differ from the Etruscans. The
first is known as forked lightning and
runs in zigzag lines, the second as sheet

and the third as globe lightning, as it
sometimes runs in the shape of a ball.

4- The Word "Niee."
"Nice" is one' of the exceptional
words which have risen on the scale
and improved with age. It is from the
Latin "nescius" and originally signi
fied Ignorant. To Chaucer it regularly
meant foolish"Wise and nothing
nice." In Spenser's time it still meant
effeminate. \From general foolishness
there was probably first a specializa
tion to foolish fussiness about trifles.
Then the idea of ignorance dropped
out, and the word meant particular
about details, accurate. It was credit
able to be a "nice" observer or to
show "nice" judgment. And so in the
end the positively agreeable meaning
of today was evolved.
A Savage Poison.
The juice of the green pineapple is
accredited in Java, the Philippines
and throughout the far east generally
with being a blood poison of a most
deadly nature. It is said to be the
substance with which the Malays poi

be also the "finger nail" poison for

These women cultivate a nail on each

In Philadelphia. He dropped a large
roll of bills on the street, and a boy
who found it returned the money to

the owner put it in his pocket "My
