It Pays to Advertise In the Rising Son VOLUME XI. PROPER MANNER OF WALKING. Body Should Be Carried Well to De rive Real Benefit. There Is no exercise bo thoroughly Invigorating and restorative (or over strained nerves . as walking. When there is no organic weakness which is aggravated by the exertion It is the easiest thing -to walk right Into health. "Almost all fatigue and ungrateful ness can be traced to a violation of the laws of economy within which the body moves." To derive any .real benefit from walking the step must be light and elastic. Awing the body so easily from ' one leg to the other that its weight ' is not felt. The harmonious play of the muscles Imparts a supple grace and litheness that is felt mentally as well as physically and produces aj healthy glow, showing that the slug-1 glsh blood is stirred to action in the! most remote veins. This manner of walking, as may be imagined, strengthens the wbole body,) .giving tone to the nerves and produc-j ins just the sort of healthful fatigue which encourages sound rest and ' "beautifying slumber. I When one rises to walk the whole! Tody should be thrown into a state of gentle tension, putting every mug--cle which harmonious movement em ploys Into vigorous, responsive action and so perfectly balanced that every -part does Its work without perceptible strain. The abdominal muscles should hold that obtrusive part in becoming re straintquite possible even with the portly if they will but make the effort instead of allowing themselves to re lax in an ungraceful attitude. The shoulder, hip and ankle joints should "be upon a line, the chest held high and bead erect, but not tipped back. The correct position of the head may be tested by holding a book on the crown. In this position the body acquires its greatest ease and every muscle per forms its maximum of labor with a minimum of waste and consequent ex penditure of force. Most people bend the knee far too much when bringing the leg forward. whereas the correct walker will keep the leg almost straight, so that the knee motion Is Imperceptible. The position In which the arms are carried Is Important If graceful walk is to be attained. Who would call the -woman striding along the street with arms swinging at the same rate as she is walking graceful? When a parcel is carried this unlovely habit of swing ing the arms is soon overcome. In fact, to insure a good walk It Is neces sa ry to have something to hold or the feeling that the arms do not belong to one will either encourage the swing ing motion or else the arms will hang by the sides in a limp, unpleaslng manner. The arms should neither swing exceedingly nor hang limply, but be carried with Just a slight swing ing motion. As walking la an everyday exercise, it Is one that is worth while cultl vating correctly and an easy walk and graceful carriage are always admired nay, many times envied. According to the Hogwallow Ken- j.w.Lian thn mall carrier has nut a large cowbell on the mule he drives, drown the screaking of Ills cart.

Pepy's Diary, 1059-1669. comment ing on Shakespeare's plays, says of "Midsummer Night's Dream:" "It Is the most Insipid, ridiculous play I ever saw In my life;" and upon reading " 'Othello, the Moor of Venice,' which I have hitherto esteemed a mighty good play; but having lately read the 'Adventures of Five Hours,' it seems a mean thing." The Hot Water Cure. The virtues of the hot water appli cation are recognized to such an ex tent that hot-water bags are made in a great variety of shapes and sizes. The latest designs are made to fit around the joints such as the knee, ankle and elbow. They are very ef fective in the treament of myalgia, arthritis, rheumatism and similar af fections. Palace to' House Club. The Tudor palace at Enfield, Eng land, which was a gift from Edward VI. to Princess, afterward Queen Eliz abeth, Is to become a Conservative club. Until recently it was used as a post office. The Tudor rose, the royal monogram and the ancient coat-of-arms are still conspicuous in the mural decorations. A Terrible Remedy. I can only think of one method by which nurses can guard against imi tations of their professional costume. It is that they should adopt one that Is ugly or at least dowdy and that remedy would, I expect, be regarded by most of the nurses as worse than the evil It was designed to cure. Truth. "Idiot." The alteration in the meaning of the word "Idiot" U peculiar. Original ly this word meant only a man In private life as distinguished from one who was concerned in public affairs. In time the word degenerated, until It came to mean one who was defec tive In mental powers. Sunday Maga zine. Believe in Wandering Jew. The belief In the Wandering Jew Is still held In France among the peasantry of Brittany and Plcardy. When a violent windstorm comes on they make the sign of the cross as they say "The Wandering Jew Is pass ing by!" ("C'est le Julf errant qui passe!") Rewards of Virtue. Every virtue gives its equal degree of felicity in some kind; honesty gives a good report; Justice, estimation; prudence, respect; courtesy and liber ality, affection; temperance gives health; fortitude a quiet mind, not to be moved by any adversity. Waiving- ham. Potato Drove Bull Mad. A potato bulged in the throat of a bull at Datihworth, near Hltchin, England, recently, and drove it mad. Four men who tried to secure It were tossed. One of them had two ribs broken, and the bead of another was badly injured. Jerusalem's Via Dolorosa. It is only 400 yearB since the name of Via Dolorosa was given to the nar row lane down which Christ panned from the Judgment ball of Pilate to Calvary. At this time also the Barred stations flr6t were marked out for pilgrims. Marital Fallings-Out. The wife who praises all her clever husband does, soon becomes his worst enemy. The husband who loses that amount of appreciation of his wife's ability that touches high-water mark loses all discrimination, says the Pil grim. Continual harmony makes life monotonous. The woman who always reiterates, "I don't know, dear," and the man who constantly answers, "Just as you say, darling," are the most maddening of mortals. Aspiration and Possession. Aspiration sees only one side ' of every question; possession many. Lowell. for It Reaches More Homes of Colored People than any othei Paper KANSAS CITY, MO.. SATURDAY, JULY 13, 1.107.

Washington Star. THE NATIONAL NEGRO BUSINESS LEAGUE Will Hold Its 8th Annual Session in Topeka, Kansas, August 14th, 15th and 16(h, 1907. The National Negro Business lea gue of which Booker T. Washington is president, will hold Its 81 li annual session In Topeka. Kansas, this .year; the dates having been fixed for Aug. Hth, l"th and 16th. It Is the first time in the history of the Organization that it has seen fit to hold a session so far west as Kan sas. This league, as is generally 'known, is coniKsed of many of thj best, most Influential and industrious men and women of the race, and mny say t'.iat in a large measure, represeuts the wealth, business acumen and in telligence of the race. And when we say Intelligence, we do not mean to confine the terms to literary attain ments, but we mean that class of men and women who do thing", who Hccotnpllsh something or them selves, and are a living and practical example to the commercial and busi ness world, that could well be emul ated. Men nnd women of every itv lthocd are represented In thlH great concourse of industry that Is soon to invade, for the first time, the broad and Inviting plains of historic Kan sas. Largely the majority of those at tending will come from the North. East and South; some as delegates, and many iik friends of the l.engc who will make the trip, to see the west as a matter of curiosity, and personal pleasure. The attendance will be large; we dare say, the larg est in the history or the League in point of delegates enrolled. Wliat will the West do? To what extent will we contribute to this splendid galaxy of he commercial and business world? Is It not the most opportune moment to place our selves favorably before those of (billion- distant parts, who are soon to become our guesls? Il will be a splendid opportunity for the North, South. East and West, to lunch the cord of common broth erhood and for three days drink from the same fountain that will lie filled with the lessons of economy, thilfl ami industry. There has never been a time in the history id' tills repute Mice when there was a greater nec essity for a common understanding; -in understanding as to the best methods' of milking a 111" worth liv ing. Of making a lire, not only nieiulable to oursclvt s w one's own country, but to the world. The program for this session will hi- ripe with seiil thoughts, thoughts wl.ich when once dropped, will lake root and send fin III a hundred fold. The benefits to be derived Trolii this meeting, especially to the west, is in calculable. The opportunity will not, unless wo begin at once to look be seen until it Is past. To the end. therefore, that we In the west, especially, may be able ro grasp and hold all the benefits that are to be derived from the meeting. il is urged that In each community, (city and country alike) that leagues Business men's leagues be organ ized and ablegates elected at once to attend tills meeting, and all business men and women put forth every pos sible method to be In attendance and hear the program.

The stock of this company is now selling at 50 cents per share and pays dividend at its par value, $1 per share. We have to raise $3,000 to put in a large pipe line, so we can put the en tire output at the wells on the market. We also will be able to put on the line all the additional wells in the future, which means a great s.iving of over $7 000 to the company in the future.
