Do you know what the Force, does for you? You don't? *Your ignorance of this great medicine may cost you your life. What wiH the Force do? Let it speak for itself: "Cure everything! Return your money if you are not satisfied! Dr. Blank's great life-giving fluid discpvered by accident! Send some hair or blood for diagnosis! All let- ters treated as confidential and secret! We combat any and all maladies! Make hopeless invalids well! Unclasp the re- morseless fingers of death!" -r: The government analyzed the Fluid and found that mate rial for which the victim paid $6 cost 35c. It was made up of ordinary drugs well known to the pharmacist. The offer to re- turn the money of dissatisfied customers was tested and found untrue a regular system of decoy-letters for obtain ing ,testimonials was uncovered the secrecy promised cus- ^tomers' letters was found to be a recording of them for fu- ture reference,^after which they were sold to other "medical" companies in search of a "subscription" list. The list of officials of the company was found to contain presidents of national banks and trust companies, an ex-lieu tenant governor of Connecticut, the president of a suburban street railway company, directors, in co-operative banks, and, not so much to be wondered at, perhaps, a former New York state superintendent of insurance. The government is to bring the Force to trial shortly and many prominent people will be in trouble. The days of the ghouls who live on other people's sicknesses and ignorance seem to be getting more troubled. The Square Deal isn't so bad as an issue. One of its beau ties is its comprehensiveness. At one time in his life Ben Franklin was a vegetarian. He tells how he was tempted and fell. "Being becalmed off Block Island, our people set about catching cod, and hauled up a great many. Hitherto I had stuck to my resolution of not eating animal food. But I had formerly been a great lover of fish, and, when this came hot out of the frying pany it smelt admirably well. I bal- anced some time between principle and inclination, till I recollected tftat, when the fish were opened, I saw smaller Ssh taken out of their stomachs then thought I, 'If/you eat* one another, I don't see why we mayn't eat you.' So I dined upon cod very heartily, and continued to eat with other peo pie, returning only now and then occasionally t6 a vegetable iiet. So convenient a thing it is to be a reasonable creature, dnce it enables one^to find, or make, a reason for everything me has a mind to do. This shows that the first great American was not only a philosopher but a humorist. Professor White, a normal school teacher in Pennsylvania, wallowed his false teeth. The X-ray man ca'ught pictures of :hem on his machine for several days, but has now lost track them. As the professor suffers no particular discomfort nseept from the fear that he may bite himself without mean-N Hg it, he refuses to be cut open on a chance. He is teaching right along as usual, but the students knowing his predica ment are difficult to keep in order. A. J. R.

A,WIERB NORWEGIAN STORY. ORWEGIANS are much concerned over a strange inci dent of the festivities which welcomed King Haakon to Christiania. A Christiania newspaper thus describes it: "At the very time when the royal procession had to pass the ancient ^fortress of Akerhus there was assembled there a great number of spectators, mostly military, in order to see the new king drive past. While the spectators were waiting, to see the king in great excitement a jingling sound was heard and suddenly the crowned statue of King Oscar fell to the ground. At the same moment the crown fell off and Was crushed in the fall. For a moment everyone present felt a little uncomfortable on witnessing thisincident but it was immediately forgotten in watching thea'oyal procession. A few dayslater some members of,the same company were as- sembledihvanother-part of the town in the house of one of the fearers, of the government. The conversation turned on the strange incident of the statue. In the midst of the con versation a scraping sound'was heard and the portrait of King Oscar glided down from the wall and fell to- the ground." It is suspected that the "Lesener Lyre" has been visiting Christiania lately. ,I^'.'J(.^\ St. F? ^J^*!(rtfe!SfejK^ajS'sit ^t&S&t'&3fci.Ji&<.i. &..4li PAPER GAS PIPES. ^S^^^^^^^^^Si&^^^^^^^^B^S^al )APER gas pipes are among the novelties reported from Europe.

After coming out of the bath the prepared strip is rolled uniformly and very tightly around an iron rod or*pipe which serves as the core and has the same diameter which the gas pipe is to' havei The rolling of the paper is stopped when the right thickness has" been secured^ After the pipe section which is thus formed has been put thru a high pres sure-it is covered on the outside by a layer of sand which is pressed into the asphalt while still hot.

I ANDREW vfoot WAS told at Delmonico's in New York the speaker,* a weMrlqiown mining engineer the occasion, a supper5 tbe^pastty^a few professionals. ".Spm yars ago," said the engineer, I received orders from a Loiidon banking house to examine certain tin mines in California and communicate results by cable. The house was of the highest character, the fees were liberal, and I started at once. My instructions were to proceed to a place that I shall name Bolton, on the Southern Pacific railway, where I would meet with a guide to the mines. "At Bolton I was met by "Judge Sharpe wittifa* buggy and double team, and was rapidly driven to Premiscal, where the judge had a ranch, in which we put up over night. I spent the following two days in examining the property and mining resources and completing my field notes.v Judge Sharpe was^anxiotfs to know what I thought of the property", but he got nothing from me, so back we went to Bolton, where I took the railway to San Francisco. "Upon crossing from Oakland to that city I was sur prised to find at the Market street ferry house my old friend. General Touchinson, who greeted my return with an effusive ness that at once put me on my guard. So gjad to see me back hoped I had enjoyed my trip tb New York, and would .1 lunch with him next day at the Poodle Dog? This capped the climax, Touchinson wasn't a "mean man, but Dog! Well, that evidently meant, something, but what it turned out to be I never for a moment suspected. Of course, I accepted. "On the morrow I accompanied the general to the Poodle I went and sat down at a cozy round table in a favoir able light. He ordered terrapin soup, canvasback duck, champagne and all the rest of ijfc. Tlien Pknew ihat the business was serious. So I bucked sharply at the champagne and swore'I was a blue ribbon. "Since when?" asked the old pard, with an incredulous laugh., '"Vvell, since this morning, if you like,/ was my reply. 'He saw that I meant it, and desisted, just making a pretense of tasting the liquor himself. "With coffee and cigars came the business. He said that he had long desired to have made a thoro examination of some quartz mines he owned near Reno, Nev., and had fully made up his mind that I was the man to do it., Now, for an old friend, what would my charges be? ",'How deep is the mine?" I asked. "He didn'been know. 1 1 'Has it workedhas* it any hoisting machineryV "It hadn't been worked and it had no hoister. In truth he didn't know mtfch about it. All he knew was its name it was called the Maryland. I must take my chances and sug gest a fee thatVould cover them. i^ "Concluding that the mines were a mere prospect easily surveyed, I mentioned at haphazard a thousand dollars and traveling, expenses, a sum to. which he at once agreed. 'Let me see,' said the general, reflectively, and holding up l\is fingers to count, 'twelve times one are-twelve. That's $12,000.', One traveling expense covers the lot., When can you. start?' *I ^replied that I could start on the morrow. ",/WeU, you see,'said the general, gazing absently at the pattern-,oh wall paper, 'the money for yqur fees is to comejfrom London and I may not get a cablegram until the dpy after tomorrow How would that suit you?' "Oh the^ you.-are offering these Nevada mines in London.?,!fn-*^-,"^ ',r 'j 'No/at leasts not at present. That will depend upon your report** Jl .^Tfi^what has Lond6n to do with my fees?" 'That's jus*i.|t! That's the point,' responded the honest old .general. 'The fact is, that in addition to the Nevada gold mines,, town an interest ip sonae California tin mines down at Premiscal.' -J. 1^ started., ,r ^'And these mines are being offered in London, with an .almost certain probability of their acceptance. Much depends -upon the report of the engineer whom they have sent .to examine them, and who has already executed his commission. Of course, he will report favorably.' "s-'And I presume you don't know the name of this en- gineer," said rising. 'No!' replied the general, looking a bit confused. 'Well, you'll no doubt learn it in time,' I rejoined. 'Meanwhile, you will be good enough to consider that Nevada journey quite possible,' and I walked out of the Poodle Dog. "As I passed the door I heard an angry and baffled voice exclaim: 'Landlord, bring me the bill!' and that is the last I ever, saw of Touchinson. "That night I cabled to London: 'Premiscal mines undesirable at any pride. Owners unreliable. Do nothing until I report in person. Starting Saturday for London.' "A fortnight later I was in St. Swrthin's lane, and the sale of, the Premiscal mines fell thru. "Shortly after this time I was invited to dine with the governor and directors of the Bank of England at the refec tory in the bank. There were present at this function some fifteen or twenty gentlemen. The conversation turned upon the future production of gold. As it-was known to several of those present that I had visited the principal auriferous districts, my opinion on the subject was asked by one. 'For the next five years,' said I, 'my estimate is about $125,000,000 a year.' 'And what proportion of this will Californiat yield?" was asked 'About a million dollars a month,' I replied. "Then I told them my story of the Premiscal mines. "That year I had more mining commissions than I could execute. When I returned to California I had $25,000 in the bank, every penny of it honestly earned. I tell you, boys, it pays!" i- NEW VIEWS OF THE UNIVERSE.

The man is called Ul thaana, meaning spirit.' When a native dies his spirit is said to ascend to the home of the great Ulthaana, where it remains (for a short time the Ulthaana then throws it into the salt water, from which it is rescued by two benevolent but lesser Ulthaana, Who perpetually reside on tha seashore, apparently merely, for the purpose of rescuing spirits who have been subject to the/inhospitable treatment of the great Ulthaana of the heavens (Alklrra)\ -Henceforth the rescued spirit bf the dead man lives with the lesser Ulthaana.'' sj-v-.V j6*^^T $ ^Vj*.- ON THE INSTALLMENT fcLAN." l"^' ]i V* A ^'CURIOUS instance the spread of modern ^ideas into the most .unlikely places is reported froni Sicily, where a no.tedjjbrigand chief, having captured a^prominent citizen ^^0*taniay has consented to his ransom being, paid on the "installment system.'.'

There is another reason and, if you are one of those who feel that coffee drinking does not agree with them, it will appeal to you very strongly. What we want to say is that even on the score of economy there is every reason why people who are at all choice in their taste should prefer Barrington Hall. The steel-cut process, re moving the tannin-bearing yellow skin, gives the coffee a su perior flavor which is all coffee flavor, so as a matter of ex perience it is found that people must be cautioned not to use so much Barrington Hall, as it takes a fifth less than any other coffee for the same strength. In fact, it takes just a fifth less of the same Java and Mocha formula than if the identical kernels were ground in the conventional coffee mill. Here is the point: The removal of the bitter tannin-bearing parchment enables those people to drink and enjoy ceffee who felt that coffee ground in the old way and unpurified did not agree with them.
