It is an old story now that nervous people tell of how the blood became thin and poor and then the nervous symptoms follow 7 ed. How many cor rectly guess that the thin blood was responsible for the nervous dis order? The nerves get all their nourish ment through the blood and as thin blood is deficient in nerve-building material, the nerves become starved. Pain and nervous break down result.

An ingenious philosopher estimates that the amount of will power neces sary to break a life-long habit would, if it could be transformed, lift a weight of many tons. that was causing the trouble and yet I could not deny myself a cup for break fast. At the age of 36 I was in very poor health, indeed. My sister told me I was in danger of becoming a coffee drunkard.

The first boat of the season to ar rive here this year will probably be the Gardie Eastman which will be down this afternoon and pass through the draw of the bridge. Everything at the bridge draw is now in shape to open it and steam can be used for its opening on the first occasion of a boat coming down the river or up. The 11 whistle at the draw was heard for the first time since last November yes terday afternoon. AiifiSftiNauvoo Boatmen. Yesterday about noon, two Isunch men from Nauvoo with two gasoline launches and a barge laden with pro duce from that little city came down the river and tied up opposite the M. C. & I. warehouse. They stayed until about 2:30 unloading their freight and taking on more to take I back to the Illinois city. The two launches were started and the barge was shoved out in mid stream but with a strong wind blowing blood, flown the river they could make no I headway whatever and had to finally turn toward shore and give up the thought of getting home last night, The two launches and barge were se curely tied up at the boat landing this morning and they will probably have to wait fairer weather oefore going back to the Mormon city. Roustles High Priced. Steamboatmen say the trouble is not that there are not enough negroes to do the work, but that they are shiftless and will only work when they feel like it, and then demand excessive wages. Some boats out of St. Louis are paying as high as $75 a month for deckhands and have difficulty in get ting enough at this wage. The pack et companies have also been exper iencing a great deal of difficulty in loading and unloading their steamers when they arrive in port, and the boats are delayed thereby. One of the drawbacks to the employ ment of foreign laborers is their scant knowledge of English, which neces sitates the hiring of Interpreters to act as foremen. They also are more particular about their sleeping quar ters than the negroes, and when em ployed as deckhands often insist on having a native cook.
