It Is as hard work "for some people to digest their dinner as it is for a normal man to walk ten miles. "After dinner rest a while." This is an old saying. It means that if after eating a heavy meal you try to do hard work you will exhaust all your energy. There will be none left for your stomach. Your stomach needs energy to work just as your leg or arm do* s. Skk people want energy. They seldom lia>e enough for their stomach. Their digestion 3s out of order and they want to know the reason. It's simple enough as we have told it. What they ought to do is to save their stomachs from hard work until It is capable of doing it, just as they rest their tired backs by lying down. This they can do by using artificially digested food. Shaker Digestive Cordial contains such food. Not only this, but It Is capable of digesting other foods in rh'e stomach. Shaker Digestive Cordial affords nourishment and creates new energy as soon as It Is swallowed. Ordinary food first has to be digested. Shakt-r Digestive Cordial while creating new energy does not expend any. It gives the stomuch no work to do. It will make thin people fat. Sick people are naturally thin. Getting thin is a sign of sick ness. A parson may be born thin, and naturally remain so. Such a one is not necessarily sick. All druggists keep it and a 10-cent sample bottle may first be tried.

From the Sun Fiancisco Call. "My first case," said a well-known attor ney, "was the defense of a negro preacher in Missouri, who had been arrested for stealing wood from a railroad company. A great d^al of fuel had been lost from time to time, so when the culprit was ar rested the company was so anxious to make an example of him that it employed special counsel and prosecuted the case vigorously. The evidence against the old man was convincing. He nad been seen sneaking around the woodpile and was ar- i rested while carrying off a load. "I had subpoenaed at>out twenty well known business men to testify to the previous good character of the defendant. When the prosecution's case was closed I put one on the stand and asked: " 'Do you know the defendant's reputa tion for honesty and integrity?' " 'Yes,' was the answer. " 'What is it?good or bad?' " 'Bad. He will steal anything he can j get his hands on.' "A titter ran through the court room. It wasn't the answer I had expected, but it was too lat3, so I put on a bold front and called another. He testified as the other witness had. and the prosecuting attorney rubbed nis nands with satisfaction. Be fore I got through with my witnesses I proved that my client was a most notorious thief, who had never known to neglect an opportunity to steal something, no mat ter how trifling It might be. Then I called a couple of physician*?, proved the existence of a mental disorder known as klepto mania, read some authorities to show that it was a good defense if proven, and sub mitted my case. The old preacher was PC quitted, and thereafter stole with impunity, for he considered his acquittal in the face of facts equivalent to a license to steal." A IHLLET IN HIS HKYIN. A Wonld-Ile Suicide Carried It for Ten Yearn. From the San Francisco Bulletin. The autopsy on the remains of Hermann Ploeschke, wMo died at the German Hos pital Thu'sday, brought to light the re markable circumstance that he had lived for ten years with a bullet in his brain. The ball was encysted beneath the left temple, and appeared to trouble Ploeschke very little. Ploeschke was at one time a successful business man, but ten years ago became ill, neglected his business, ainkbecomlng re duced in circumstances, decided to commit suicide. He took a thirty-eight-cailber re volver, placed it to his right temple and fired. Ploeschke was unconscious for many days, and for weeks he hovered between life and death. The surgeons vainly probed for the bullet, and it was supposed the mis sile had deflected downward, passing through the reck and lodging in the mus cles of the shoulder. Ploeschke finally recovered and was. ap parently, none the worse for his experi ence. During the past three or four years Plo eschke complained of neuralgia pains on the left side of the head, which sometimes became so agonizing that he prayed for death to end his sufferings. He applied to the physicians, but none of "them could afford him relief. He told them a bullet was In his brain and that it felt at times as if some one was squeezing his head in a vice. The doctors laughed at him, and, as Ploeschke number among his many weaknesses an inordinate lo\;e for strong stimulants, his story was deemed a crea tion of diseased fancy. Some weeks ago Ploeschke became ill from an organic disease and he was sent to the German Hospital by some friends. His disease had a fatal termination Thurs day, and it was decided to ascertain the course of the bullet fired into his skull ten years ago. The brain was removed, and over the left temple a cyst was found. This, on being cut open, brought to light the bullet which Ploeschke had firmly maintained pressed upon his brain. The ball on entering the right temple passed through the right eye, through the upper nasal bones, thence it plowed its way beneath the left eye. Here it was de flected upward, locating above the left temple. Ho;v Ploeschke ever survived the wound Is one of these mysteries which de fies the best efforts of the surgeons to ex plain satisfactorily. Yet he lived ten years, and aside from the pains its presence oc casioned at times, was none the worse for the affair. A Tlirifty Maine Woman. From the Lewlston (Me.) Journal Talk about nerve! A Caribou dentist tells the Journal that a woman came to his rooms one day lately, and, showing him an aching tooth, asked if it would come out hard. The dentist, after an In spection, 'replied that it would be an easy tooth to pull; whereupon the sufferer re rrarked: "Wal, I'm glad. A blacksmith promised to pull the tooth with a pair of pinchers, and I guess I'll let him do the Job, if the tooth is comin' easy." And away she went, leaving an astonished and bewildered dentist to gaze at her in won der as she started for the blacksmith's shop. Richard C. Meade, the insurance swin ller. v ho was recently convicted of misap >ropriating nearly $30,000 Intrusted to him >y widows and others, has been taken to :he penitentiary at Leavenworth to com mence his sentence of three years. FEDERATION OF LABOR . .8 V. h it Fifteenth Annual, Convention Begun in HewYork. n t: John Swlnton DtgfnjfiM the RMiilt of Organisation l^4'F?lh?r Dnccy iin the Boupty iof God. ol- 1c uq ?t . The fifteenth convention of the American Federation of Labor be?an in Madis Square Gafflety] New York, yester day. Delegates were present from all over the United States, Gfcnfrda and Great Brit ain. President McBride presided, and in troduced J. W. Sullivan of Typograpnieal Union, No. G, who delivered the address of welcome. The reports of the president, secretary and treasurer were read and re ferred to the proper committees. President MeBrlde's Remarks. President McBride occupied the attention of the delegates for a half hour or more with the reading of his annual address. He said in part: "The greatest crime of the nineteenth century and the most remark able ever perpetrated upon our people was that committed by the present national ad ministration, in adding to the bon<||d in debtedness of our country during a time of peace. The attempt to maintain a gold reserve of $100,000,000 by a contract such as was wade with the Belmont-Morgan syndicate was farcical, to say the least, but a farce only in so far as it was inten^pd to blind the people to the fact that they were being robbed, deliberately and un mercifully, in the interests of eastern bank ers and bondholders, whose only desire has been, and now is, the perpetuation of a system of bonded indebtedness of part of the government." The Cuban situation also came in for a word, concerning which he said: "The Cuban revolt is in itself deserving of a consideration and recognition at our hands, but when we remember that the Spanish dynasty has always evidenced hos tility to republican governments, even in the case of this country, we should be all the more determined to insist upon fair treatment, and I trust ere this convention adjourns you will have adopted resolutions petitioning Congress to at least recognize Cubans as belligerents." In conclusion, President McBride added: "The Constitution of the national and the many state governments stands today as a monument to the past greatness and grandness of our country. These consti tutions were made and adopted for the pur pose of protecting men and methods now dead. "They are not suited for the changed industrial conditions and improved mental status of the present time, hence, if the modern environments of labor are to be ameliorated by legislation in keeping with the progress of our people. It might be well to turn our attention to the cutting away of these constitutional barriers which invali date legislation enacted in the people's in terests." The chairman then introduced John Sain ton, who spoke in part as follows: "The Federation of Labor is a power in the I United States. It is made up of men, who make all things and are the natural owners thereof. 1 take much pleasure ? in seeing the English representatives iere. I hope that this association will send delegates to all parts of the earth, as well as have for eign delegates present at your conventions. There is much to learn from the English ! trade associations. The union nas dene great things, having advanced the l-rice of labor and secured recognition in parliament. "The largest thing in organized labor is the act and fact of organization. It l.as grown from nothing, being in its early ciays kicked and sneered at. By hard work it has won the right of existence, and you must maintain it under penalty of death. Fifty years ago there was little need of or ganization, for there was work for all. The times, however, have changed. Another thing is the right to strike against wrong, it used to be more unlawful to strike than now. Since that infamous Judge Woods mounted the bench and the government sent the militia to Chicago there is a change. "If there were no labor organizations wages would be half, hours half as long j again, and capital would rule. I "How can you meet the questions of the ! changed times? How can sNju combat the law? If you pass resolutions it will jam them down your throats. There are many other questions, such as the big monopolies. They will have to be met by such a bedy as this." | Father Ducey was then introduced and ' said: "I am here because the pope wants me to be, if some of you do not. In 1891 an encyclical was issued by the pope in regard to labor, and it is my duty as a minister to be present where such matters arise. What Mr. Swinton has said i3 perfectly true." Father Ducey quoted a great deal of Scripture, and said that no murderer shall enter: the kingdom of heaven, and drew as a comparison the oppression of the laborer, who is often killed by want, not being able to secure employment. J "There are many," said he, continuing, "that live in luxury and pile up fortunes | with the blood-money of the poor. There [ Is enough here for all, and it should be so ! far allowed that no man need appeal for alms. God intended the workingman should have proper food. It remains for the nvn I isters to teach the requirements of man kind." Father Ducey said that the disruption of the Knights of Labor was caused by the wrongful use of a statement issued by Cardinal Gibbons. It was to cause a feel ing between the Catholics and Protestants, and succeeded. Adjournment was then taken until this ? morning Mystery Story Final Chapter. The final chapter of the mystery story, "Before They Were Married," will be pub lished in next Saturday's Star. Guesses as to the solution of the mystery may be forwarded to The Star office until Wed nesday evening at 6 o'clock, when the polls close. As is well known, the $250 of fered in prizes are to be awarded only for explanations sent in by women and girls according to published conditions. ON? ENJOY?

A recent report of Dairy and Food Com missi* ner Wells of Pennsylvania names so many food products which are adulterated as to raise a query as to what is not adul terated. Among the many impure things sold are allspice, which often is mainly composed of ground and roasted cocoanut shells; baking powder; beef, wine and iron, prepared as a tonic; butter, buckwheat flour, candy, catsup, cider, cheese, cinna mon, clovtc?the latter made almost en tirely from ground cocoanut shells, the odor and toste of clcves being scarcely per ceptible?coffee?consisting chiefly, of coffee screenings or damaged coffee, but soM at a high price as a pure article; fresh 4 Java, made from wheat and barley hulls, roasteu with sugar ar.d containing no coffee; cod fish, not codfish at all-merely cheap dried fish; cream of tartar adulterated with flour; flaxseed, adulterated starch; fruit "butters," such as apple but ter, peach butter, etc.r very seldom pure, being adulterated with starch waste and salycilic acid; the same is true of grated pii eapple; ginger, adulterated with ash, rice hulls, rice flour and cayenne pepper; lard; maple sirup, made from commercial glu cose thinned with about 20 per cent of wa ter; mixed spices, orange juice, lemon oil, lemon phosphate, molasses, mustard, olive cil, pepper, vinegar, vanilla extract, all kinds of preserves, extract of strawberries and tea. , To add to the deception a few apple seeds are scattered through the so-called Jams, or timothy or other seeds are added to the mixture to represent raspberry, strawberry, etc. The production of arti ficial colors is particularly common in con fections. Indigo, tumeric, annatto, log wood and cochineal are used in great quan tities, and are probably not harmful: ar senic, copper and leads are very deleteri 3us, but are rot now used as much as in former times, before sanitary officials made ?uch persistent attacks on them. Milk and ?nilk products are often colored. Annatto s very commonly used by dairymen to give l rich yellow color. In itself annatto is irobaDly harmless, but it produces deoep :lve results. Healthy, liappy children are those whose Mothers have been, and are, healthy The best intentioned woman in the world will fall short of her duty to her children if she is worried and wearied with weakness and sickness. Most all irritable women are sick women. Most all melancholy, listless, languid women are sick women. Every woman who will take the trouble to notice, will find that at certain fixed periods *he is nervous, cross, irritable and despondent. Any irregularity makes the conditions worse. liven a well woman is less amiable than usual at these times What cau be expected from a sick woman? When every movement is a dreap1 drag, when the nerves are all on edge in sym pathy with the particulai ones affected? when it stems that death were very much preferable to living?what can a woman do IOt her children then ? It is every woman's duty to be well and healthy.
