Almost Any Married Man Will Appre ciate the Situation Poor Hubby Got Himself Into. "What a beautiful new hat and coat!" she cried, as soon as he came home that afternoon. . "Isn't It? I mean, aren't they?" ho said proudly. "Bargains, too. The overcoat was $16, reduced from some thing, and the hat was $4, but they're going to raise the price next week. His young wife crowed with delight "Herman, you look stunning!" she exclaimed. "Let me put them on, to give you some slight Idea of the gen eral effect. You ' can never tell on yourself, you know." . : And she put them on. The coat was a nobby plaid Balmacaan and the. hat was a Nile green felt, very swagger. "By Jove, Cecile," he cried, "If I "look bait that good In 'em I'm satis fied!" She walked to the pier glass. "You look very fine In them, dear," She said hesitatingly, "but truth com- ptls me to say they're more than twice as becoming on me. You know, the - women are wearing men's hats and. coats this winter. Don't you think you could get -yourself another outfit to morrow something in colors a little mrre becoming to you, perhaps?

"And, Harry, dear1 I found the love liest hat today. I don't believe I ever saw anything that was so becoming to me. It's $25. Do you think I ought to pay that much for a hat?"

It Is about as well to advise people to stick to coffee until they get hi bard enough so that they will never forget their experience. - A woman writes and her letter Is condensed to give the facts In a short space: "I was a coffee slave and stuck to It like a toper to his 'cups,' notwithstand ing I frequently had severe attacks of sick headache; then I used more cof fee to relieve the headache, and this was well enough until the coffee ef fect wore off. "Finally attacks of rheumatism be gan to appear, and ultimately the whole nervous system began to break down and I was- fast becoming a wreck. , . , "After a time I was Induced to quit coffee and take up Fostum: This was bait a year ago. The result has been most satisfactory. "The rheumatism is gone entirely, nerves practically well and steady, di gestion almost perfect, never have any more sick headaches and am gaining steadily in weight and strength."

By LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR WAL LACBI of California.) ' Business is an exchange of com modities. It is buying and selling, and there must be advantage or gain In the barter. For continued com merce the gain must extend to both parties to the transaction. If the re sultant advantage of a business deal Inures to the benefit of one party only, there Is an economio defect. The buy er must benefit by his purchase as truly as the seller by his sale. The buyer gets from the grocer flour, from the bardwareman nails, from the lum berman lumber, and In each case buy er and seller are benefited. The same buyer goes to the saloon to get wine or beer or whisky. The dealer makes a profit on the goods sold. But here is a break in our business principle. The buyer makes no gain. He parts with his share of the barter, and gets nothing valuable in return. At every other counter there was gain on both sides; here the gain was on one side only.' The transaction limps; it .is false to business principles. It repre sents economic waste. The economio waste becomes a mul tiplied factor when the argument is extended to liquor's effect on the pur chaser who consumes it. The liquor traffic is a parasite. Any business, blood that It hag is sucked from the vigorous body of healthful business. It contributes nothing, but draws heavily. If a town or city prospers where trafflo in liquor is allowed, its prosperity Is lees than It should be by Just so much as liquor takes. It gives nothing, and what It takes is so much subtracted from the genera' gain. TWO SCENES. . (Excerpt from one of Mrs. L. M. Stevens' Annual Addresses.) N. A young society woman, a total ab stainer, remarked that It was very bard to make a strong argument in favor of total abstinence when there were so many moderate drinkers in her circle who were successful in business and happy In their home life. To this we say, In your circle you see but one section at one stage of action. Let us shift the scene little. A temperance specialist was per mitted to sit in the office of a certain sanitarium while the patients came filing In with bared arms to take their semi-dally treatment When the last one had passed out the doctor said In' that line were representatives of many business enterprises, of educa tional institutions, of every profea slon; men who are stfil possessors of large wealth, and others who have Wasted their fortunes and are now trying- to get well that they may be gin life anew." TOLL OF iOOO A DAY. According to Doctor Demme, who studied ten "temperate families" and ten "Intemperate families" for 11 years In the same class of society, the deaths of children under five in the latter group were five times as many as in the former group 25 against five, Since the deaths below the age of flv comprise SO per cent of all the deaths, It is evidently more than conservative to take the comparison of adult males given above as a measure of the rav ages of alcohol for the total popula tion, save Richmond P. Hobson, in "Al cohol and the Government." Ifwe were a nation of total abstainers we would die off at the rate of E60 per 61,000 of the population, whereas we are actually dying off at a rate of 1,000 per 81,000. In other words, alco hol causes the premature death of 440 citizens out of every 61,000 of the population every year, which means that alcohol kills about 700,000 Ameri can citizens every year, about 2,000 I day every day the sun rises. MONEY TO RUN COUNTRY. "Where will you get the money to run the country If you cut out the sale of liquor?" asks the liquor advocate. 'The best answer we know of." says the North American of Philadelphia, is the action of Russia, England, France and Germany, which at a time when every cent that can be got Is urgently needed for the conduct of the. war, find It more profitable to reduce this revenue than to run the risks in cidental upon the general use of alco holio drinks among the soldiers and as la Russia, the general public." DISTILLERS FEAR 80METHINQ. It is reported on good authority that the distillers of Peoria, 111., will not make a lease for a longer term than five years, and some of them re fuse to extend the time beyond two years. Evidently they fear something may nappen in the state or the nation in the next fewjrears. STATUS OF SALOONS. The saloon stands In the same rela tion to the community as the gambler wno fleeces a harvest hand and then lends him a dollar so he can get to his next Job. That dollar Is not benevo lent or necessary; neither are saloon taxes. Paciflo Christian Advocate.

ARMORED CAR IN WARFARE European Armies Have Found It the Greatest Value In Their Operations. of Although an engine new to warfare, the armored motor car has proved ex tremely useful, especially for outpost and scouting duty. Fast, silent, and mobile. It covers a vast amount ground on the splendid roads that crisscross the field of war In western Europe. Most of the cars are Incased In a light frame of tough steel plate that ranges in thickness from three sixteenths of an Inch to a quarter of an Inch, and that Is impervious to rifle and machine-gun fire. All the vulner able parts of the motor, such as the radiator and steering gear, and some of the newest cars the wheels, are protected by the steel covering. The wheels, both wood and wire, are said to withstand the roughest sort of usage. Accidents to the tires are much less common than anyone would expect The cars carry a light arma mem one or two machine guns so mounted that they can be swung through a complete circle and large supply of ammunition. The crew, which may number from four to eight or more men, are armed with rifles and revolvers. Some of the cars have a steel superstructure that rises from the chassis frame high enough to enable the crew to stand upright. and that Is capped with a domed roof, from which bullets and shrapnel usu ally fly off at a sharp angle without even denting the steel.
