I vent to see a great many physicians, a matter which cost me a fortune, and after I noticed that I did not get any relief that way, I went for three years to the hospital But they were unable to help me there, I used all the medicines that I could see but became worse and worse. I had an Inflammation which made me almost crazy with pain. When I showed my foot to my, friends they would get really frightened. I did sot know what to do. I was so sick and had be come so nervous that I positively lost all hope. "I had seen the advertisement of the Cutlcura Remedies a great many times, but could not make up my mind to buy them, for I had already used so many medicines. Finally I did decide to use the Cutlcura Remedies and I tell you that I was never so pleased as when I noticed that, after h'avlng used two sets of Cutlcura Soap, Cutlcura Ointment and Cutlcura Pills, the en tire Inflammation had gone. I was completely cured. I should be only too glad if people with similar disease would come to me and find out the truth. I would only recommend them to use Cutlcura.

The '49ers of Califor nia gold fever fame are pass ing into history. The epoch of which they are survivors Is closed and tho last of them ' are becom ing too feeble to come to the an nual reunion which has ben held in Chicago on "admission day" each year for the last twenty years. A notice reluctantly admitting these facts was issued recently by Secre tary George W. Hotchklss. the young est of the California gold hunters, who at the age of seventy-nine Is in too feeble health to take charge of a convention. The entire executive committee of the organization ap pointed last year is either dead or imder a temporary disability prevent ing Hicm from serving, and half of the fourteen pioneers who attended last year's meeting have since died. A heroic effort to get trace of all i:r Iviaig pioneers In the middle west resulted In the return "not found" of !:r.lf of the hundred letters sent out by Mr. Hotchklss. and, while he hopes :n Pnrl a few '49ers for a meeting m "dl.irovcry day," January 18, the ocrotnry said sadly that in ten years tliey would nil be gone and nothing but printed pages could tell of a r.:ovcr.ient whose like the world can never see again. "It was a picked lot of young men Puzzle to Trace PHILADELPHIA. What becomes of the vast volume of copper pennies that are turned out each year by the Rovernment? They are never called in and redeemed like some kinds of currency and coins, but they seem to disappear as fast as they are stamped and put in circulation. It is unusual if the date on any of the pennies In a man's purse at the end of the day Is over ten years back, yet the Philadelphia mint which coins all the copper pennies, sends out In some years as many as $1,000,000 worth of them to the trade centers 100,000.000, one-cent pieces. If laid flat, edge to edge, In a row they would reach more than one thousand miles. And still there are some sections of the country where the penny is little known. In many of the mountain districts of the south the "York shilling." 12 Circus Lemonade TOPEKA, Kan. Dr. S. J. Crumblne, secretary of the Kansas board of health, has put his official foot into the mixture always present at cir cuses, fairs, Fourth of July celebra tions, picnics and other gatherings of a like nature. This mixture Is known as lemonade according to the barker who spiels before the refreshment stands. Generally It is something that looks a little like lemonade because there is a lemon peel In the tub, but it hasn't the taste of the refreshing beverage mother makes. Since the memory of man runneth not to the contrary, the one chief de light of the small boy and girl and the big boy and his sweetheart has been to drink circus lemonade at the circus fair or picnic. 1 v No one knows who Invented the The lid Put on Tight in New York JM'6 A COLD) SELFISH YVOILD MEW YORK. Spurred on by Acting Mayor John Purroy Mitchell. Po lice Commissioner William A. Baker has caused several raids to be made on the gambling Joints of this city, and the lid has been jammed on so tightly that $1,000,000 of capital In vested In such places is idle Just now, while the owners are wondering "what next?" Impatient over the vexing de lay. Acting Mayor Mltchel In a letter, following several raids, has put square ly up to Commissioner Baker all re sponsibility for the non-enforcement of laws against gambling and vice. He charges the police with being grossly derelict in their datles. and declares that the situation his secret service men report eould not exist without roller connivance. There is panlo in History, Unwept who reached California In those days," he declared. "Only those who had the grit to spend months at sea or acrpBs Indian-Infested plains and mountains succeeded in getting there. The people of today do not know how much their country owes to the '49 ers. They did more toward the de velopment of the United States than the men who fought in the revolution or any other single group of men. Most of them were very young. The man among them who was over twenty-five was rare. And they did not get rich. The men who came after ward on the railways, with capital and improved mining methods, or who went into real estate were the ones who reaped fortunes. The pioneer who got enough for his railway fare and $1,000 more with which to buy a farm considered him self lucky. Those who came after ward on the railway we do not con sider real pioneers. They are not eligible to our society. "We were privileged to take part In an epoch of history unlike any thing that had ever gone before, and it is something whose like can never be seen again. There may be other countries still to be developed, but there Is no place left in the world where such a spreading of civiliza tion over an enormous wilderness can take place In so few decades as It did in the western United States. The MOers, as they went west in their prairie schooners, saw miles upon miles of fertile country whose existence had been scarcely known, and they were the most important factor in developing the entire west." the Lost Pennies cents, is still spoken of In trade, but no ono ever hears the one-cent piece mentioned. In many towns In the south and west the tradesmen offer nothing for a penny, a five-cent pur chase is the smallest that can be made. But of late there have been more demands for pennies from the west, and the government experts have declared that this is a sign of Increased frugality. In the east, the chief use of the penny, outside of filling the child's bank and buying the daily paper, is for the purchase of chewing gum and one-cent candies. The increase in the number of penny-in-the-slot phono graphs and moving picture machines in the last few years shows another way to which the public has taken to get rid of its pennies. Uncle Sam takes in many pennies for stamps and post cards, and many of them flow Into the contribution box in the churches and religious societies. But all these ways in which the penny 1b put to use does not explain where they eventually go or what makes them disappear In such vast quantities every year. Even the government coinage experts do not give a satisfac tory answer to the problem. Tabooed in Kansas glad refrain of the lemonade stand barker, who in stentorian tones, calls: "Lemo, lemo, lemonade. Made In the shade, Stirred with a spade Five cents a big glass!" These things have been among the sights and sounds of all picnics, cele brations and fairs and circuses since Kansas became a state. But no more will one hear these sounds or drink the "lemonade" about Kansas unless the dispenser has real lemonade to sell. The state board of health has put a damper on the noise of the barker because the board of health has ruled that a tub of water. In which is put some tartaric add and sacchar ine and the peel of a lemon is not lem onade, but the imitation article, and cannot be Bold as the real thing. In Kansas all lemonade offered for sale must be made from the Juice of lemons, water and sugar only. Imita tion lemonade can only be made from citric acid and sugar and water. The use of the most common materials for making fake lemonade, tartaric add and saccharine, is absolutely prohibit ed In this state. the ranks of the gamblers as well as with the police. , Since the shooting of Mayor Gaynor placed him at the head of affairs Act ing Mayor Mltchel has received' many complaints. Some were appeals from mothers who declared that their sons were losing money in gambling places, and many were specific in their char acter. - Men from the office of the commis sioners of accounts, the secret service department of the city government., found for Mr. Mltchel the violations of the law. The raids began and keys were soon in the doors of 40 gambling places along the Great White Way be tween Thirty-second and Sixty-ninth streets, and $1,000,000 of invested cap ital went out of business. The mana gers who were not crating their rou lette wheels, their faro layouts and their Klondyke sets in preparation for the exodus, were mournfully parading the streets In the vicinity of their bouses, warning away prospective cus tomers. It was the saddest day the gamblers have known since the As new -Hart racing bills went Into farce, A Corner in Ancestors By ELEANOR Sharp or Sharpe Family (Copyright by Sharp is one of the names that were given because of certain men tal qualities; and therefore it 1b prob able that the first Sharp, or Sharpe, wherever he lived, gained his name because of his business ability and sharp wit Settlers of this name from England, Scotland, Sweden, Holland and Ireland all arrived early in this country, and It Is rather difficult to tell who came first But the majority of them came from England, and the family there Is very old. The English name Is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and used to be spelled also Scharpe and Scarpe. Then It became Sharpe, and since about the sixteenth century it has been spelled either with or without the final "e." We first hear of the Sharpea In Eng land In the West Riding of Yorkshire, whence the family spread to other parts of the country. There are rec ords of the name as early as the four teenth century in certain deeds and wills, and from these documents it ap pears that the family was already well-to-do and of good standing. Be tween 1501 and 1C02 9 wills were preserved at York alone made by various Sharps and Sharpea. One of the earliest members of tho English family to attract attention to himself was Dr. John Sharp, arch bishop of York and chaplain of his majesty, lames IL This old archbishop of York had a large family, and of course, the Sharps who came here from England claimed relationship to him. But as already Wynkoop Wynkoop, which used to be alBO Wynckoop, Winckoop, Wlnkoop, Win cop and Wlncob, is supposed to be a contraction of wyn-kooper, a wine buy er or vinter. Little is known of the family before it left Holland for Amer ica. It had emigrated to England, and also to Java. There Is a bay on the southern shore of that island, near the eastern end, named Wynkoop bay; but there is a tradition in Java and In Holland that the family of Wyn koops who went to Java and for whom the bay was named, eventually returned to Holland. - A private record in Amsterdam states that two men, Peter and Cor nelius Wynkoop, left Holland for New Amsterdam early In the seventeenth century. And the same two names are met with early In the history of Albany, the former In 1639 and the latter in 1655. It Is not known what relation these two men bore each oth er; they may have been brothers. Peter is lost track of after a few years; either he died young, or else returned to Holland. Cornelius re mained and established the family In this country. Cornelius Wynkoop, who was born In Holland, 1b first mentioned at Al bany in 1655. He married Maria Janze Langedyk, and between 1664 and 1667 moved his family to Esopus, now part of Kingston, New York. He had al ready a grant of some 26 acres of land there. From 1669 to 1671 be was com missary of Kingston, and held some other positions in the government of the place. In 1675 he began to manu facture brick; but he died the follow ing year. His wife outlived him only ten or twelve months. Cornelius and Maria left seven chil dren. Johannes, the oldest was bound to a blacksmith to learn the trade. Later he became a magistrate of the town court of Kingston, and In 1712 be was made president of the court of magistrates. He married twice and left many children. His sister Maria, named for her mother, married Moses Du Puis and bad 11 children. The four whose marriages are recorded all married into the Schoonmaker family; the three sons marrying Margried, Elizabeth and. Sara, and the daughter marrying Benjamin Schoonmaker. Benjamin Wynkoop, another son of Cornelius, had a slave named London, a Spanish Indian, who was Indicted in 1741, with others, for conspiring to burn the city of New York. The Wynkoop family distinguished itself in the Revolution. Another of Cornelius great-great-grandsons was Captain Jacobus, who cerrel wiih distinction la the tattle :;viS::::::::::;': LEXINGTON XeCltu Syndtarta) said, it is almost impossible to tell which branch of the family arrived here first. Sometimes it Is said that the first settlers of the name came from England to Long Island. Again It Is sometimes said that the first Sharp in this country was one Thomas, who came from London to Boston in 1629, but who, because of misfortune, returned to England. Then there was Samuel Sharp, who came to Salem that year with Rev. Samuel Shelton In the ship "George Bonaventure," and who was entrusted with bringing to Massachusetts a duplicate copy of the charter of the colony. He had six children, Ellas, Edward, Experience, Nathaniel, Hannah and Abigail, and whether or not he was the first perma nent settler here, he established a big branch of the Sharp family. Another Important section of the family in New England was estab lished, bo far as we know, by Thomas of Stratford, Conn. He may have come from the branch already men tioned on Long island. The family in New Jersey was es tablished by William and Thomas Sharp, who came over In the "Samuel" in 1C82 and settled at Burlington, N. J. They came from Oak Lane, Coun ty Middlesex, England, and brought their families with them. Their de scendants still have in their posses sion several things which William brought with him, among them an old eight day clock, that winds without a key, and a two-gallon bottle. The big Albany (N. Y.) branch of the family came from Sweden, and was established here by Jacobus Sharp. Some of the later branches of the family In this country were estab lished settlers from Scotland, and they have an interesting ancestor in an other Archbishop Sharp James, arch- Disnop oi st. Andrews. He was a great .friend of Charles I. of England, and after the king's execution was out of favor for some time. When the Stuarts returned to the throne he was made archbishop of St Andrews. There are many coats-of-arms for this family came from Sweden, and was blazoned: Argent a fesse azure between two crosses, crosslet fitchee in chief and a mullet in base gules. The crest is a pheon proper, and the motto reads: "Progredere ne regre dere." The arms of the branch of the fam ily in Yorkshire, which are illustrated, are blazoned: Azure, a pheon argent within a bordure or, charged with dght torteaux. The crest is an eagle's haad erased azure, ducally gorged or, holding In the mouth a pheon argent Family of Ticonderoga. Still another was Maj. William Wynkoop. He servef through the war, especially distin guishing himself In the battle of Still water. In 1783 he took his family with him and settled in Pennsylvania. From Esopus, where they had lived, the family went by wagon through the wilderness. Then they went by flat boat more than 100 miles up the north branch of the Susquehanna to Tioga Point now Athens, where they met with 2,000 Indians making a trea ty with the white settlers. From there they took canoes up the Chemung, and settled at the place of the same name in Pennsylvania. They were in the midst of a wilderness; but fortunately the Indians were friendly and game was plentiful, so they were comfort able. When their wheat was ready to make into flour they would load it into canoes and go down the river to Wilkesbarre, more than 100 miles away; so the year after they settled there, Maj. William Wynkoop built a mill; and after that the settlers from miles away used to come to grind their wheat Now the family spreads pretty well over the "whole country, and, as some of its members say, there Is no mem ber of whom the others need be ashamed. It seems to be the thing, If you are a Wynkoop, to be happy. On some of the old family plate Is en graved this motto: Vlrtutem Hilantate Colere, which translated Is: Cultivate Virtue with Cheerfulness. The arms are blazoned: In first and fourth quarters azure a rock argent projecting from a sea argent two five pointed stars in the first and fourth quarters, in second and third quar ters azure a lion argent with a crows or.
