Invented On ly to Be Squelched — Wb»t It Heut When Jackie Comb. Hl* Mn.t.che With a M.rllno Spike. "There is perhaps less drunkenness among the enlisted men of the United States navy than among the men for ward of any of the world's big sea fit outs," said a naval officer of experience to the writer. "Drunkenness passed with the old navy. In the days of the old Tuscarora or the Tennessee, aa the sailors put it, it was a common enough thing to see about three-quarters of a ship's company returning from shore liberty in such a state that they had to be hoisted over the side in bosun's chairs to save the trouble of carrying them up the gangway. But that sort of thing is no longer Men who ~g6' ftSftf§"Blter having remained aboard ship for a considerable period are ex pected by the officer of the deck to re turn just a trifle exhilarated, but they never return quite incapable. "Men who exhibit the slightest indi cations of being addicted to drink are turned down flatly by the examining surgeons when they present themselves for enlistment nowadays. The surgeons tell me that they can tell from a man's eyes whether he has ever suffered severe ly from excessive drinking, no matter how long the man may have abstained from drink before seeking enlistment "If men addicted to drink do happen to get by the examining surgeon and re veal their weakness by going on tears every time they go ashore, the navy gets rid of them by simply ' beaching' them—that is, by putting them on the beach with their bags and hammocks wherever their ship may happen to be in a home port. A man cannot be 'beached' for any cause in a foreign country. "There are, of course, any number of men in the navy, and rattling fine sail ormen, too, who have a natural predi lection for drink, and these men the officers keep an eye on for their own good. Sailors are bound to try to smug gle liquor aboard ship. If they drink considerably on their shore liberties, they know that when they return aboard they are in for ' big heads' when they awaken in their hammocks the next morning, and in trying to safely bring a bit of liquor oft* to the ship they have in mind the taking of 'a hair of the dog' to sort of ease them up when they turn to at 'all hands' the next morning. "Sometimes they get the liquor safe ly aboard, but generally they do not, Every enlisted man on a United States man-of-war, except the chief master at arms and the top sergeant of marines, is searched at the gangway upon his re turn from shore liberty by the gangway corporal of the marine guard, under the Inspection of the officer of the deck, for the purpose of ascertaining if he has any liquor concealed about his clothes. The men have picked up some ingenious schemes for smuggling liquor in such a way that the corporal of the guard is fooled. For example, the men on the Chirm station buy long eelskins from the coolies, fill the skins with about a quart of liquor and wind them around their necks beneath the collars of their shirts. "It took the officers on the China sta tion a long while to get on to this scheme. Then the men who felt that they surely needed a drink the next morning after returning from liberty discovered the plan of filling a rubber bag with liquor while ashore and of '•towing the bag next to their waist bands. The liquor smugglers, who ob served that the searching corporal only passed his hands up and down on the outside of their clothes, then resorted to the plan of tying bottles of liquor with string on the inner side of their legs, beneath their trousers, but any searching corporal knows all about this one nowadays. "The cox'un of the steam cutter, who makes dozens of trips ashore a day when the cutter is'running boat,'has to be carefully watched, for he is liable to be tampered with by the men who want liquor pretty badly, and his op portunities for getting liquor aboard are many. Every once in awhile, upon the cutter's return to the ship, it is searched by the officer of the deck, and the latter often finds liquor neatly stowed among the cutter coal, in the cutter bilges or even in the boiler tanks. When this happens, the cox'un of the cutter is in trouble. He gets a big rake off from the men for his liquor smug gling, which accounts for the chances he will take. "The ship's painter has to be watched too. He is a petty officer, and he has charge of the ship's alcohol, which is chiefly used for the making of shellac to paint the lower decks. "Some of the sailors like a dose of alcohol mixed with coffee for 'toning' and sobering up purposes, and as the ship's painter is occasionally corruptible and carries the keys of the alcohol tanks there is quite a little drinking of this mixture on some of the ships where old timers predominate. The old flat feet have indeed been known to drink the shellac after it has been prepared for the sake of the alcohol in it, and there is an expression in the navy among the enlisted men, 'If you see a jackie comb ing his mustache with a marline spike, you know what he's been at,' that is very significant. "But for all this, as I say, there is an exceedingly small percentage of drinking men in our navy in compari son with similar figures for other big navies. The occasional drinkers in our service, when they return from the beach a bit under the weather, are merely put in the brig overnight and permitted to go to work without pun ishment the next morning."—Wash ington Star. Picking Pocket. With Toes. The gauchos, or dwellers in the ex tensive plains of Buenos Ayres, are marvelously dexterous with both hands and feet. Many of them have acquired through long practice such skill in using their toes as if they were fingers that they can fling the lasso and even pick pockets with them. Some time ago a Frenchman who was fishing in one of the rivers of Bueuos Ayres was warned to be on his guard against the light fin gered natives. He forthwith kept a vig ilant watch on his companions, but nevertheless one day, when his attention was closely riveted on his float, a wily gaucho drew near, and, delicately in serting his foot, extracted the French man's hooks and other valuables from his pocket— Boston Tranggript.

Ihe chemical and toxic properties of poison of the honeybee have been a ect for long study by a German sci st, Dr. Joseph Zanger. During his Investigation Dr. Zanger employed 25, -000 bees. He found that the fresh poison is clear, like water, of an acid reaction, bitter taste and of a fine aromatic odor. On evaporating and drying at a tem perature of 100 degrees centigrade (212 degrees F.) a gummy residue is left. It is soluble in water; with alcohol it forms an emulsionlike mixture. The aromatic odor is due to a volatile sub stance, which disappears on evaporation and is not poisonous. The poisonous constituent is not destroyed by short boiling nor by drying and heating the ■due to 212 degrees F. nor by the di d aoids or alkalis, ir. Zanger has proved the existence ormic acid, but he has also proved that that is not the poisonous principle. The latter is an organic base, soluble, with difficulty, in water, but kept in so- Bon by an acid. On the healthy skin her the bee poison nor a 2 per cent .tion of the poisonous principle has any effect, but they act as powerful ir ritants on the mucuous membranes. His tests made on rabbits and other limals show that when the poison is lught in contact with the eye there low lachrymation, hyperemia, che isis and croupous membrane or con lctiva. The general condition is also acted; the animals become melan )ly, take no food, but are very thirsty, 1 the urine shows small amounts of umen. —Philadelphia Record. j ANK'S PART IN FARMING. [ Bow the Trader. In Money Enable Boil ; Tillers to Work. How does a bank help the farmer? With the approach of the time for plowing and planting, seeds and far. tilizer will be necessary. How can the farmer buy them if the last season was a poor one? He has spent all of his earnings in running the household dur ing the long winter. He goes to the dealer in fertilizer in the nearest vil lage and asks, "What is the price of fertilizer a ton?" "Fifty dollars," the dealer replies. "Well, I will need two tons, and that will amount to $100." "Yes. Take it along now?" "I haven't the ready oash just now, but"— "Oh, that's all right. I know you're good for it. Take it along and give me your note payable in four months. By that time your crops will be yielding a profit." The farmer gives his note; the dealer indorses it and gives it in payment to the wholesaler from whom he gets the fertilizer; tho wholesaler sends it to the manufacturer of the fertilizer, who in turn takes it to his bank and borrows the money on it less the interest. The farmer gets his seed in the same way and at the time of the expiration of the notes is able to meet his obliga tions. Thus, instead of the farmer being compelled to wait nutil he can get the cash to pay before he can buy the fer tilizer and seed, he obtains them when he needs them. The dealer, instead of having to wait until the farmer gets the money before he can sell his goods, sells them in the proper season and receives what is to him practically cash. The wholesaler receives from the retailer what is as good as cash to him, and the l manufacturer receives virtually cash from the wholesaler. How would all this be possible were it not that the bankers had collected the idle money of other people and were able to lend it out to good advantage? The farm would go unplanted; the ground would go untilled; there would be no crops to yield a profit That's where the bank helps the farmer.—New York Press. Queen Wilhelmina. There is no longer any doubt that Wilhelmina, queen of the Netherlands, is engaged to marry Prince Bernhard of Saxe- Weimar, who is now 20 years of age and the second son of the late hereditary Prince of Weimar. The young queen has lately been in Paris seeing the sights and selecting a trous seau. Her dresses, rides in the Bois and goodness of face and character have been items of interest in the Paris jour nals. They deem it significant that she shops in Paris instead of Berlin and be lieve the future queen a valuable parson to cultivate.

The aver age man of to-day thinks it beneath his dignity to bother about his health until it is gone. Even then he only takes measures Men cannot learn too soon that health is the most import ant thing in life—in fact, is life. Without it the most brilliant man will be a failure, and the most robust man will rapidly be come a physical wreck. The man who neglects the little headaches, the loss of appetite and sleep, nervousness, hot flush ings, cold chills, heavy head, lax muscles, and the multitude of bad feelings that are the heralds of approaching sickness and disease, must pay a tremendous penalty.
