As Captain Smith walked oft' parade
Sam Green inquiringly said :
"Pray tell me, Cap, and tell me true,
Why all those officers in blue,
Walk up and touch their hats to you ?"
"Why, Sam, you must be green !
The reason's planly to be seen.
My bars, so humble in their place,
Are worth the symbol on their face,
Whilst leaves and eagles pay no debts,
Those officers, Sam, are all brevets."
"Well, that gets me, you bet!
Pray tell me, Cap, what is brevet ?"
"Well, Sain?to get 11 mrougu yuur pate,
You listen while I illustrate.
You seen yon turkey on the fence?
He's turkey, Saui, in every sense.
Yon turkey-buzzard on the tree,
He's brevet turkey?d'ye see?"
"A turkey has some value, Sam,
Buzzard isn't worth a d?n!"

Jack Entertains Visitors.?Jack
is the genius of the family. He is 10
years old, an omniverous reader, and
always on the hunt for information.
Occasionally he breaks out with questions
when visitors are around and
causes consternation in domestic rankB,
although to Jack, it seems he always
puts things with a fine impartiality.
Recently a neighbor dropped in to
spend the evening. Jack's mother said
that she would "be down in a minute,"
and meantime Jack took it upon himself
to entertain the company.
"There is one thing that I would
like to know," said the quaint little
"Well ?" smiled the visitiDg lady.
"Were you considered handsome
when you were a young woman ?"
"Er?well, Jackie," hesitated the
visitor, "I don't know that I was. I
think probably no one but Mr. Brown
considered me beautiful, and you know
be married me."
"Well, I just wanted to know were
you skinny then?"
"Not very."
"I don't think you could have been
so very fat. Now you're old and ugl>

this is the way it goes with all the

she thought about it. She said that

"Yes," replied the girl in brown,
frowning at the recollection.
"What was the matter?"
"He basely deceived me," answered
the girl iu brown. "You see, it was this
way : I asked him oue day to prom?

smoke cigarettes, and he promised,
Then I asked him to refrain from the
use of tobacco in any form, and he
promised to do that. Later I told him 1

After that I suggested that I thought

In buying lamps or oil, says a writer
in the Washington Star, remember that
the best is always the cheapest in the
end. A well-filled, carefully-trimmed
and clean, odorless lamp adds much to
the attractiveness of a table. Clean
burners and wicks are essential to
clear light. The metal holders should
be boiled in salt and soda and water
every few weeks, for heated metal
gives out a foul odor. The wicks become
clogged by the paruffine in the
oil, and if long in use, should be occasionally
washed, boiled and dried.
If soaked in vinegar they are said to

give a vicaiei nguu, n iw nguv, j/m.
out two or three threads lengthwise.
When first lighted do not turn very
high, as the flame is apt to increase.
Never turn low and leave lighted.
Never light a half-filled lamp that has
been standing any length of time.
Lamps should be cared for in the
morning as a regular part of the routine
work. Fill within a half-inch of
the top, trim evenly just the charred
part of the wick?using scissors kept
especially for that purpose, or rubbing
off with a bit of paper. The chimneys
do not always need washing. By
1 breathing lightly down the chimney
and rubbing with a tissue paper, a
1 handful of waste or a clean, soft cotton
cloth, they can be kept bright and
clear. Never wash in warm, soapy
k water, as chimneys thus treated crack
i easily and take on a cloudy surface
that no rubbing can eradicate. Never
. clean with patent brushes or bristles
on a metal holder, as they scratch the
glass and the chimneys break. Cbimr
neys were formerly tempered in the
p manufacture; but are now so low that
this precaution is omitted. They may
he tempered at home by putting in
cold water and bringing to a boil.
Then cool in water. Cold water and
alcohol give the chimneys the highest
' polish. When the lamp is filled and
trimmed, rub and dry every inch of
the bowl, fixture, handle and base,
f that no trace of kerosene be left to
I soil the hands of the lamp lighter, aud
turn the wick very low, to avoid the
f capillary overflow.
Uses of Coal Oil.?A noted physi
i ciau relates this little incident of his
: early practice. A lady brought her
r little boy suffering from heat and injudicious
feediug. He prescribed cool?
ing driuks, a bath and sleep. The

r got credit for the cure. We are often
rich in resources we know not of, as
! they are too common to be appreciated.
Common sense works wonders in using
what we have on hand. Try the virtue
" of coal oil; a few drops on cloth,
moistened first with water, polishes
' windows and mirrors, removes dust
from paint and furniture. Equal parts
5 of linseed oil (boiled) and coal oil polishes
oiled furniture and floors. A
! tablespoonful in a boiler of clothes i9
equal to the best washing compouud.
Two-thirds milk and one-third oil,
' well shaken, is the best remedy for
rose bugs. Kerosene removes lice
from poultry and cures scaly legs.
. Wash perches with it now and then.
I Sometimes it is quite effectual in the
> family for sore throat, rubbing on
outside with the hand. This, liowev.
er, is only for sore throat from cold, as
. sore throat with fever and pain needs
. a physician every time. Best medical
authority advises coal oil for hair tonic,
. rubbing iu scalp thoroughly with ends
t of fingers, applying at least once a
, month. The odor quickly passes
away. Nothing better for cleaning
zinc and tin.?S. B. Bawerman.
L Water Drinking.?To keep in
health a person should drink from two
to four quarts of water each day.
The system requires to be cleaused
' and its organs flooded with water.
} Besides its cleansing efficacy, water
absorbs effete matter and carries it
through the system. The purer the
water the greater the power of absorp5
tion. Some diseases of the kidneys
have been known to yield to generous

liver and kidney disorders are caused
mainly by general or local impeded
circulation. The best tonic and blood
purifier is nature's own medium?pure

Don't Abuse the Eyes.?Don't
think because you have good eyes they
, will bear all kinds of abuse,
i Don't use the eyes continuously at
5 close work, without occasionally restf
ing them by looking off in the distance,
t- Don't hold the book nearer than is
necessary for clear, sharp vision.
Don't make a practice of reading
type too small to be seen readily at
[ 18 inches.
Don't attempt to read in a car or
' other jolting vehicles. It is a strain
) on the directing muscles.
Don't read when very sleepy, as the
accommodation and convergence are
naturally relaxed, and the extra efforts
necessary to force the unruly members
to work may be shown by a congestion
of the blood vessels of the eyeball.
Don't read facing the light.
Don't read in the twilight or in
1 badly lighted rooms.?Pacific Health
i To Sweep a Sick Room.?The best
' way to "sweep" a sick room is to rub
the carpet with a damp cloth. Dust
must be avoided. The feather duster,
which should find no place in the economy
of any part of the house, is particularly
objectionable in the sick room.
i Wipe the furniture and woodwork daily
with a damp cloth, adding a teaspoonful
of aramouia to the water with which
I he carpet is to be wiped. In case of any
infectious disease the carpet should be
removed ; but if this is found impossible,
clean sheets should be tacked
smoothly over it, to he changed as
i often as necessary, and these sheets
sprinkled euch day with a solution of
carbolic water.?The Physician.

The Lone Fight Agttlnst Private Hllla
Grown Exciting.
The proceedings of the house during
the consideration of private pension
bills, last Friday, were sensational.
The following report is from the Associated
Press: 1
Mr. Talbert, of South Carolina, sent
to the clerk's desk and had read some
letters from old soldiers in various
parts of the country protesting against I
the special acts "ground out by the
congressional bureau." One of them I
said the old soldiers were very "sore." i
Mr. Talbert said the letters read were
/? ? J 1- t~ ~ U.J
simpiy as samples oj nunureus ue unu
received. Later on Mr. Talbert, who
was demanding the reading of the report
in each case and who several (
limes made points of no quorum, be- {
came involved in a controversy with (
Mr. Sbattuc, of Ohio, who expressed
the opinion that opposition to pensions
came with ill-grace from a former Confederate
soldier. Mr. Sibley, of Pennsylvania,
said a simple calculation
would show that it cost $36,000 a day
for a session of the house or $7,000 an
hour. Time frittered away by Mr.
Talbert since be came to congress, he
said, would more than pay all the
special peusion bills passed during that
Mr. Norton, of Ohio, protested
against Mr. Talbert's course. If be
found an unjust bill and could demonstrate
that it was unjust be (Norton),
and many members on the floor would
join him in defeating it. He appealed
to Mr. Talbert to abandon his opposition.
Mr. Lamb, of Virginia, joined in the
rppeal, and his remarks drew forth a
scathing dununciation from Mr. Talbert.
He said that the trouble was
the gentleman from Virginia had
claims before the bouse he desired to
get through. The same was true of
other gentlemen. It was a log rolling
combine. They dared not fight these
unjust pensiou bills as he was doing.
When he went into the Confederate
army, he said, he and his had staked
everything and had lost it. They
were not passing the hat around now.
Mr. Fordney attacked Mr. Talbert a
little later. He said that when Mr.
Talbert said he was a friend of ibe
soldier he would not believe him ou
Mr. Talbert, with a great show of
wrath, replied that when the gentleman
imputed untruthfulness to him he
hurled it back, and "crammed it down
his rotten throat." He grew so excited
that the chair was obliged to call bim
to order. When quiet had been restored,
Mr. Furdney raised a roar of
laughter by remarking quietly ; "I believe
in the Biblical promise that we
shall be born again. I hope to God
that when Mr. Talbert's time comes
he will be stillborn."

Mr. Love was unable to get the check

returned to his home here a few days
ago and has since developed what is 1
pronounced by a specialist, a genuine
case of smallpox. A guard has been
placed at the house, which prevents
any communication between its inmates
and outside persons, which, it is
hoped, will prevent the disease from

, The House
I of Isstens
There are love stories that are simply .
zs sweetly told tales. There are others in .
^ which the love tale, sweet in itself, is
^ made a part of an exciting plot. I
[j. "The House of Isstens" is one of the
yf latter. It is a story of the olden time
k when there were knights and ladies and
when lighting was natural. It is ad?
mirably told and fascinating from beginning
to end. \
One thing that induced us to purchase the
serial rights of this story is the fact .
that, although intensely interesting, it is
of a different order from the serials that
we have heretore presented to our readers.
It begins in TODAY'S issue.
Branching Out!

* About the Man ;

i' i
TX7ITII Putty and Paint: Once upon a ,
ie VV time, not so very long ago, there
K was a Buggy maker who didn't use very *
5* good material. "But," says he to himself,
"I will fill the bad spots with j
putty, and over all I will put nice shiny .
paint and then the bad material cannot be
la seen." ]
And the poor customers who bought
from the manufacturer, soon found that
_ ''All's Not Gold
That Glitters!"
So come to our factory and inspect the ^
q wood and iron material, and select your
j. Buggy before there is a speck of paint on
it. If you do this way, you can't be
Iy deceived ; if you don't, you might. [
