CHAMBERS' BUILDING. IF WE COULD KNOW Ii we could hear as we pass along, The minor chords in our brother's song If we could read The blotted lines in his once fair creed, Would we not try- To lift him up, ere we passed him hv? As we journey on, if we could know How tired the feet that conic and go; If we could see The heavy burdens borne patiently— I wonder, friend, If we would not pause some aid to lend. In our busy baste if we could see The heart that bleeds for our sympathy; If we eould guess How utter our brother's loneliness, Would we not stay To cheer him a little on bis way ? If we but knew of the bitter tears, Of sorrows borne through the weary years, Would we not be A bit more kind in our ministry? When hearts are sad, A bit more eager to make them glad? A solemn charge is the life we bear; Fleeting it is, but it iuav lie fair, If we hut heed The outstretched hands and the hearts that plead, And day by day Strew deeds of kindness along their way. A SCENE IN EDEN Reported by an Unseen Angel Who Couldn't Keep a Good Thing. " How does it come, dinner isn't ready?" demanded Adam impatiently as he arrived home after a hard day's toil in the garden. " I am sorry, Adam, dear," said Eve penitently, " but I have been embroi dering you a new figleaf. There is really no reason why we shouldn't have more clothing when flglcavcs are so plentiful." "Do you know," said Adam, tenta tively, " I sometimes question the pro priety of you wearing a figleaf." " Why, Adam!" exclaimed Eve, aghast, " What do you mean?" " Er—well," ventured Adam, " don't you think a figleaf is a trifle decol lete, so to speak?" " No," said Eve rather snappishly, "so long as I don't give any garden parties, I think a figleaf is all right. Dear me! Do you wish me to wear a sealskin sack this warm weather?" Adam did not answer this last tally, but sat down to the tablo and poured out a cup of coffee. " This coffee is too weak," he said irritably. " You are very touchy to-day, Adam," said Eve, reproachfully. " Next I suppose you'll be telling me that I can't make coffee like your mother used to make." " I wish I had my rib back," re turned Adam." " I'd about as lief live alone as drink lukewarm dishwater." "Well, if I had a mamma," sobbed Eve in an injured tone, "you bet I'd go home to her. Adam ate the remainder of his meal in silence. SHOULD MARRY SOONER. President Eliot Says Educated People Don't Keep Increasing. In his anuual report to the Harvard Board of Overseers, made public, Presi dent Eliot declared Harvard's policy to be one of determined support to the requirements of a bachelor's degree or its equivalent for admission to the professional schools, as now in force in the departments of theology, law and medicine at Harvard, and to an even higher standard than has hitherto been set for the degree of a B. M. After giving statistics to show " that the highly educated part of the Amer ican people does not increase the pop ulation at all, but on the contrary fails to reproduce itself, President Eliot says: " It is probable that the regretable result is due in part to the late post ponement of marriage on the part of the educated young men—a postpone ment which the protracted education now prescribed for men who enter the learned and scientific professions makes almost unavoidable." On athletic sports in general, Presi dent Eliot says there is increasing ob jection to their great exaggeration. How Robson Became an Actor. Baltimore Sua. Stuart Robson tells this story of how he became an actor: " I had run away from my home in Baltimore aud had drifted to Wash ington with my playmate, Arthur Pue Gorman, now a Senator-elect from Maryland, and for several weeks I was on the verge of starvation. Gorman had a lot of push and he lauded as a page in the Senate, but somehow I couldn't connect, but I used to hang about the capitol just the same, and one day—l remember it well, because it was marked by dull, red clouds, that now is spoken of as the ' yellow day' in Washington —Gorman came to me and said: "'Rob, if you'll see Dan Webster he'll fix you.' "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall Where they May." " I was astonished at the assurance of Artie Gorman, but I saw Mr. Web ster, and within a week, through his influence, strange as it may seem in the light of history, I was made a page in Congress. Daniel Webster, Toombs of Georgia, and Jefferson Davis acting as my sponsors. " I served two terms as a page and one afternoon I received an invitation from John Sleeper Clark and Edwin Booth to join a company which they had just formed in Baltimore, to tour Delaware and Virginia in Shakespear ian plays. I did not know what to do. My mind was in chaos. I wanted to do better than a page, and yet I had a yearning for the stagp. It was at this time that I met Mr. Webster. He was hurrying toward the Senatecham bcr. " I said to him: "Mr. Webster, I have had an offer to go on the stage.' '" Indeed,' replied Mr. Webster. '"Yes, sir,' I replied timidly, ' anil do you think it a great chance for me?' "' Yes, my boy, I do," answered Mr. Webster. 'You were cut out for an actor and not for a statesman. I saw you yesterday laughing at one of An drew Johnson's jokes, and your laugh ter fooled me for a minute. Go on the stage, my boy. That is where you belong.' " And I went on the stage, and I am still on tlia stage." BRYAN BRIEFLETS. Mr. Hanna appears to be working his explanation department in two shifts. President Harrison also made some pretty good speeches, but be failed of re-election. Mr. Hanna's attempts to cut the guy-ropes of Tom Johnson's circus tent were dismal failures. It is barely possible that Mr. J. J. Hill's attack of pessimism is for publi cation purposes only. " Speak in a Pickwickian sense and carry a softly stuffed club for the trusts," is the real meaning. The merger decision is still disturb ing Wall street. Has the high-water mark of combination been reached? The carving may be done different ly, but Hill and Morgan will get the choice meat, while the people wiil get the neck. The President seems much more afraid that the people will hurt what he calls the good trusts than he is that the bad trusts will injure the people. Mr. Rockefeller has made a proposi tion to donate a few thousand dollars to the University of Nebraska, and now Nebraskansare preparing to squirt cologne into their kerosene. The army officers charged with smuggling in Porto Rico are not to be prosecuted, Secretary Root having or dered proceedings stopped. This, add ed to the Woods incident, leads one to infer that Secretary Root is begin ning to imagine that the commissioned officer can do no wrong. Prohibition That Doesn't Prohibit. While Maine has a prohibitory liq uor law, it does not seem to be en forced in some of the larger cities. In stead a peculiar method of collecting license fees is followed. Bangor has a plan by which, it is said, alldealers are fined once a year and are then allowed to go free from molestation the remain der of the year provided they conduct orderly places. There are said to be over 200 liquor saloons in that city. Recently complaints were made of about fifty dealers, nearly all of whom appeared voluntarily in court and paid fines, the minimum rate being $2lO, aud $10,522 was collected in that way. The men who pay the money pro ceed with their saloon business, feeling that they are safe for another year, if they keep orderly places. If public sentiment sustains such a practice, it is probably useless to try to eu force the prohibitory law. "AH, Colonel," said the beaniiful grass widow, "you don't know ltow glad I am that Lent is past." " Why? Have you been practicing self-denial very hard?" " Yes. That homely woman over there beside the punch bowl made some awfully mean remarks about me not long ago. I've been waiting. Now that we shall all be going out again and meeting every few nights, I'm going to make eyes at her hus band. Watch me for a week or two, and see if I don't make her crazy." THE only trouble with " carrying a big stick," in the form of a navy, is the temptation to use it. It is the man who carries a gun that is tempted to shoot and the boy with a new jack knife who cannot resist whittling the school furniture. HIKT is the name of a New York dentist—and of course he does. FREAKS of individuality upset all calculations. OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 8, 1903. THE SOLE OF HER FOOT By It a Woman's Fortune Can Be Told as Well as by the Palm. New York Suu. Character readers believe that the sole of the foot is as good an index of personal traits and the individual destiny as the palm of the hond. The life-line in the normal person should run without a break from the base of the big toe to the base of the small toe. The inequalities in this line signify the illnesses the persun will experience and whether those illnesses will be in youth, maturity, or late in life. If the line ends abruptly midway across tho foot and cannot be discerned further on, the breakage means death at middle age. The lines on the average heel are generally indistinct, but in persons of remarkable intelligence or tenacity those lines aro plainly distinguished. Numerous lines on the heel running crosswise and in many directions mark the owner of the foot as qualified to take the initiative and achieve suc cess in whatever pursuits .he elects. .Such lines appearing iu confusion also signify versatility. A cross-line on the ball of the foot indicates love of family and a truthful, loyal temperament. The more marked this line the better index it is that the individual will excel in the domestic virtues, be a good wife or good bus baud and faithful in filial or pareutal relations. Persons with a slight dent in the center of the sole are apt to be of a sanguine, enthusiastic nature with the tendency to go all lengths in love, in religion, patriotism, or whatever en gages their interests. The deeper the dent the more intense tbc nature. The moderately plump, somewhat short foot is index of a steady-going, practical person, systematic, and to lie trusted. A long, slim, tapering foot indicates refined sensibility and a log ical mind. The owner is usually a person of a conservative taste and cor rect standards. The pliant, delicately molded foot, joined to a small ankle, generally be. longs to a person who is impression able and a good deal controlled by im pulse. The owner of such a foot will have strong instincts toward inde pendence and will prize variety and intellectual stimulus. The thick, blunt foot, joined to an ankle rather large aud stiff-set, belongs to the industrious plodder of not over quick perceptions. The termagant, the peace lover, the crank, and the fanatic, can all be told by their feet. The shape and length or shortness of the toes is considered in conjunction with the contour and size of the foot itself. Uncommonly long and unusually short toes, wheth er thick or thin, indicate character istics out of the normal. The toes of the well-balanced, judicious person are of medium dimensions only and moderately tapering. CAUSE OF CANCER FOUND. The Discovery Made by Scientists to Be An. In a few days the results of the in vestigations carried on for many months by a number of well-known bacteriologists and toxicologists, in New York, regarding the cause of can cer and cancerous growths, will proba bly be fully revealed in a paper written by Dr. Bertram H. Buxton, the bac teriologist and general scientist. This paper will contain, according to a trust worthy source, the message that the cause of cancer has at last been dis covered and that this truth has been proved to the satisfaction of a number of men who stand high in the science of medicine. Briefly, the investiga tions have revealed, according to state ments made: 1. That cancer is due to the chem ical changes in the blood. 2. That ever part or tissue of a can cer has the power of producing fer mentation. 3. That in their powers of causing fermentation the cancerous tissues are akin to the tissues of the stomach. 4. That by proving this theory the theory that cancer was due to a para site was disproved. There are some curious things in English spelling and pronunciation, and the knowledge of them does not come by iuitinct: If an S an and an I and an O and a U, With an X at the end spell Su, And an E and a Y and an E spell an I, Pray, what is the speller to do? Then if also an 8 and an I and a G And on H E D spelt cide, There's nothing much left for the spel ler to do, But to go and commit sionxeyesighed. BEETE.M— Pshaw! I must have |2O by noon to-day, and I left all my money at home in my other clothes. Can't you help me out? Wiseman—Sure. I'll lend you car fare to go home for it. Engliish as She is Spelt. STATE NEWS. A Brief Summary of News Gathered From All Parts of the State. Uncle Sam wants 9,750,000 feet of lumber and 2,390 doors for use in the Philippines. May 30 is to be celebrated as the semi centennial of the founding of Whatcom county. At a late logrolling of the Woodmen of the World at Walla Walla, 000 candidates were admitted. The Alaska cablo to be built by the government will start from Seattle, with offices in the Walker building. A University of California rowing crew will contest with a University of Washington crew at Seattle May 29th. Newspaper artists on tho Pacific coast will give an exhibition of the products of their pencils and brushes in Seattle in June. A new directory of North Yakima contains 2,770 names, which by giving the usual directory multiple of 21 gives a population of G,940. Maj. John Millis, of the corps of en gineers, has been designated to build tbc road authorized by the last session of Congress, into Mount Rainier Na tional Park. It is said that a couple of fishermen, a few days ago, killed all the fish in Lost Lake, a small body of water situ ated near Edmonds, by exploding sev eral charges of dynamite upon its sur face. Rear Admiral Yates Stirling lias been relieved from command of the I'uget Sound nary yard and ordered to command the third division of the Asiatic licet. The Wisconsin will be his flagship. A contract has been let at Ballard for a $7,000 laundry. Such a cleansing factory for a community the size of that city, is certainly remarkable. Probably she intends to wash her big sister, Seattle. The Panel and Folding Box Co., of Aberdeen, have contracted for $50.- 000 worth of machinery for their new factory, to be delivered by May 15th, or a rebato of SIOO per day will be ac corded its purchasers. Peter Ashley, a farmer of Peone Prairie, Dear Spokane, was held up by two masked men, in broad daylight recently and robbed of 20 cents. Both the robbers were effectually disguised, though judging from their eixe and perturbation they were boys and novices. Alto, a small town on the O. R. & N., was destroyed by fire on the night of the Ist. It started in one of the big warehouses, destroyed the elevator section-house and other buildings, in volving a loss of $20,000. Fortunately there was very little grain in storage at the time of the tire. Kent Journal: This is not very en couraging to the lover of the oyster. It is said that the oyster contains 66,- 000,000 perfectly organized microbes. We would, however, like to know how the deuce so many of the horrible thiugs can get into one of our small, bewitching, dainty Olympia oysters? " Scotty" Campbell, who owns a val uable cedar claim on the Neuschkab, has found several quartz ledges, one of which is nearly three feet through, and carries gold, silver and copper in paying quantities. The ledge is four miles due south of Aberdeen, and is located in a country thick with under brush and hard to prospect. People of Aberdeen were out in force to listen to the sweet music of thousands of strange birds that came to Aberdeen at midnight. May Ist, from some unknown quarter. The feathered visitors were evidently in a strange land, for many of their num ber were killed by flying against build ings. The name of the bird is not known, but it is said to much resemble the ordinary bluebird. George Itoss, a 14-year-old incorrigi ble, at Everett, made a murderous as sault upon his mother, a few days ago, with a carving knife. Ho ran after her around the dining room table, and was only frustrated in his bloody intent by an aged grandfather who was present. The boy lias had consid erable trouble in the public school which he attends. He was arrested and will in all probability be sent to the Reform School. Benson, the self-convicted murderer of Deputy Sheriff Morrell in the county jail at Olympia is declared guilty of manslaughter by a jury at the State Capital this week, the maxi mum penalty for which is 20 years imprisonment. It is just this sort of monkeying with justico that brings the law's methods into contempt with manv people. In this case the pris oner himself was fair enough to ad mit that he ought to be hanged and that he had expected no other kind of a sentence, an opinion which the reading public, no doubt, shared with him.— Yakima Democrat. Mack Wood, the bartender who was drowned in a bathtub at Seattle, on the Ist, is said by his friends and oth ers who are in a position to know, to have been heir to an estate of $2,000,- 000 and a nephew of the wealthy duke of Hamilton of England. Wood had lived in Seattle for a number of years. A few nunths ago an agent of the duke of Hamilton, his uncle, came to Seattle and mado every elibrt to induce Wood to quit his dissolute life and re turn to hia family in England. " I would rather lose my fortune than my whisky," was his invariable answer to the importunities of the agent. If Sheriff Brewer had made another trip to Benure Island after pirates, he probably would never have reached home alive. While hunting on the island a man named Conner from La- Conner heard the mewing of a cat coming from a small shack. He opened the door cautiously aud stared into the muzzle of a 45-caliber rifle, which was cunningly arranged so that a string from the door would spring the trigger. Sheriff Brewer and depu ties recently made two arrests among the pirates on tho island, and it is be lieved that friends of the arrested men laid the trap for the Sheriff's death. Dr. de Forest, the inventor of the Forest Wireless Telegraph, made a trip recently to Cape Flattery, whore he selected the site for the American terminus of the wireless telegraph system that is to connect this country with Asia. He was ac companied on the trip by \V. G. Clark, of Kilbourno & Clark, E. E. Hall, the engineer who will have charge of the actual construction work, of Seattle, and Frank R. Beahan of the U. S. signal station atTatoosh Island. The location selected by Dr. de Forest is near the extremity of Cape Flattery, where the elevation is about 250 feet above the sea. The country is densely wooded, but beneath the the surface soil is solid rock that will furnish an excellent foundation for the 225- foot towers that comprise the struc ture. THE HEATHEN CHINEE IS PE CULIAR. How He Worked the Express Company in Securing an Unclaimed Package The Orcgonian, in its " Side-Lights on Life in Portland," has this to say of a very ingenious trick played on the " Melican man," by his copper-colored brother: " Valuable goods are put up in small packages," said the old auc tioneer, " but that's a proverb that doesn't go with a Chinaman. He wants all his money's worth and be lieves he's ahead of the game when ho gets boots and clothes several sizes too large for him. But did you ever hear of the gold brick one Chinaman bought at an express sale here years ago? You know the express companies have an annual sale of unclaimed packages. I was hired to auction ofT a big bunch, and several' Chinks' were in the crowd. They didn't bid on a thing until I got to the biggest package of the lot—a great oblong box that weighed pretty heavy. They sized it up and raised a white man's bid. He raised back, but they shut him out with a jump of $5. Then another white man thought it looked good, and went after it. I've no idea what fool notion they'd got into their heads as to what the box contained, but the Chinks jabbered a heap about it, and they ran it up to |BO, when the white man quit. " Then the winner pulled a hatchet somewhere from under his shirt and knocked off a board. What d'ye think was in the boz? "Nothing but the cheapest-looking coffin you ever saw. They'd bought a blaimed old uncalled-for stiff. The other Chinks and the crowd laughed tit to bust, but the buyer raised quite a howl—wanted his money back and all that. But I needed the commis sion and I didn't want any legal fuss ing about a mysterious corpse, so I made him load it on a truck and get off with it. " I told him, says I: 'lt's none of my funeral, now; that up to you, Chiukie.' "And he went off a ' uk-a-hi-ing' and a ' ki-ti-ing' to beat tho band." Just then an ex-Customs official who chanced to be among the auc tioneer's listeners, inquired: " You never heard the sequel to that story, eh, Joe?" " No—something more to it?" " Well, rather. About a week after that sale we got onto the information that that coffin was chock full of opjum and never an ounce of it paid duty. You Chiuks had been put wise in some way,and that's why they were at the sale, and they knew they had the right package soon's they saw the coffin. That holler about 'money back' was all a bluff." A WRITER without ambition is al most as bad as a poet with an idea. MEN are seldom thankful when they get what they deserve. TIMELY HINTS. Things Worth Remembering About Vegetables. It is believed by vegetarians that a purely vegetable diet makes people amiable, good-natured, generous, de veloping the finer characteristics of the user, and that excessive meat eaters become the opposite quarrelsome, selfish, etc. Whether this he true or not, we know that fresh vegetables are appre ciated in the early spring and are an essential change from the heavy winter viands and should form the greater part of our daily menus. Almost every vegetable has its par ticular use in the human system and Dame Nature provides sufficient varie ty to keep us in fine bodily condition, if we will live in accordance with her laws, and not abuse her gifts. Tomatoes act directly on the liver. Onions, garlic, Iccks,shallots, chives, etc., stimulate the circulation, increase the saliva and gastric juices, and pro mote digestion. Teas, beans and lentils, called also legumes, are among the most nutri tious of vegetables, containing as much carbon as wheat, and more muscle forming food. Lettuce and celery both have a good effect upon the nerves; the former is soothing; the latter a tonic. The free use of pieplant or rhubarb is considered a " Spring tonic" and will take the place of medicine which is often apparently necessary to tone up the system. Being such a common and inexpensive plant, it is really not appreciated by the majority of house wives. When so fortunate as to have it growing in the garden, it is gener ally used in small amounts for pies early in the season aDd the remainder allowed to go to waste, when it might be utilized in a variety of appetiziug dishes all the year around, as it can be preserved for winter uso equally as well as the more expensive fruit. To Serve With Meats. With roast beef, grated horse-radisli. Koast veal, tomato or horse-radish sauoo, Koast mutton, currant jelly. Koast pork, apple sauce. Koast lamb, mint sauce. Koast turkey, chestnut dressing, cranberry jelly. Koast venison, black currant jelly or grape jelly. Koast goose, tart apple sauce. Koast quail, currant jelly, celery sauoe. Koast camasback duck, apple bread, black currant jelly. Koast cbickeu, bread sauce. Fried chicken, cream gravy, corn fritters. Koast duck, orange salad. Cold boiled tongue, sauce tartare or olives stufTed with peppers. Veal sausage, tomato sauce, grated Parmesan cheese. Pork sausage, tart apple sauoe or fried apples. Frizzled beef, horse radish. Pork croquettes, tomato sauce. Corned beef, mustard. Home Made Yeast. Pare four good-sized potatoes, and let them lie in cold water for a half hour. Put one quart of boiling water in a sauce pan. Now grate the pota toes quickly and stir them into the boiling water; stir over the fire for five minutes, then remove from the fire, add a cupful of sugar and two tablespoons of salt, turn into a stone jar or bowl, and let stand until luke warm, then add one cupful of good yeast, cover and ferment three or four hours; stir it down every time it comes to the top of the vessel; then put it into a jar or bottle or something that can be covered tightly, and stand it in a place where it will keep very cold, but not freeze. It will keep two weeks. Save one cupful of this yeast to start with next time. This is the simplest and best yeast that can be made. Flavoring for Soup. Often we have some stock made from tastless meats and hardly know how to make it palatable. The follow ing recipe renders the stock delicious however tastleless it may have been. Mix together one tablespoon of lemon juice, one teaspoon of sugar, one half teaspoon grated lemon peel, one-fourth teaspoon of nutmeg and ten drops of extract of ginger. Add to the stock before straining or clarifying. Corned Beef Hash. Cut cold, cooked corned beef very fine and mix with twice its bulk of mashed potato. Add a shredded green pepper to every quart, season with salt and pepper and serve very hot. This recipe comes from the chef of a man's club. Corned beef hash served on toast, with a poached egg dropped on each portion, commands a high price at good restaurants. OABTOniA. Bears the in( l You Have Always BcagM AVHOLE NUMBER 2,239.

"Your 'Favorite Pre scription ' is, without a doubt, the finest remedy on the market to-day. for female difficulties.
