At Least, Only Kind Young Broker
Knew Anything About.
A -young broker in Iloston, while vis
iting a certain household In the Hub
not long ago, encountered a number
ot young women graduates whose con
versation suddenly turned to a dis
cussion of the development of the
English novel.
The dealer In stocks and bonds
speedily found himself "out of it."
Presently, during a lull, one young
woman asked him:
"What do you think of Fielding, Mr.
"Oh, fielding is important, of course,"
quickly responded the broker, "but
it isn't worth much unless you've got
good pitchers and men who can hit
the ball." Harper's Weekly.
Suffered Torments from Birth In
Frightful Condition Got No Help
Until Cuticura Cured Him.
"I had an Itching, tormenting ecze
ma ever since I came Into the world,
and I am now a man 55 years old.
I tried all kinds of medicines I heard
of, but found no relief. . I was truly
In a frightful condition. At last
broke out all over with red and white
boils, which kept growing until they
were as big as walnuts, causing great
pain and misery, but I kept from
scratching as well as I could. I was
so run down that I could hardly do
my work. I used Cuticura Soap, Oint
ment, Resolvent, and Pills for about
eight months, and I can truthfully say
I am cured. Hale Bordwell, Tipton,
la., Aug. 17, 1907."
"I cheerfully endorse the above tes
timonial. It is the truth. I know Mr.
Bordwell and know the condition he
was In. Nelson R. Burnett, Tipton, la."
The String to It.
"Why did you refuse me just now,
dear?" said he.
"I wanted to see how you would
act," said she.
"But I might have gone without
waiting for an explanation," Enid he.
"I had locked the door," said she.

Kansas Boy Arrested In Germany. I
An Illustration of the strict method
pursued by the German government
was given a few weeks ago when
Adolph Fahnauer, a Leavenworth boy
who went to visit relatives in a small
town near Berlin, was arrested tho
moment he alighted from the (rain.
He is charged with being a native ot

The clerk of Atchison county re
cently wrote a letter to Attorney

quired the names of persons who re
celped only one vote In the recent
primary election to be printed on the
official pallot. Mr. Jackson's reply
to the letter was received by the clerk
a few days ago. The attorney general
said that the law makes no provi
sions that would keep the names of
such candidates off the official bal
lot. "It may be a joke, as the nom
ination of many candidates is," wrote
Mr. Jackson, "but the people have
spoken and their voice is supreme
and must be respected."

Body Found in the Road. "Tim"
Bacon, who has been a resident of
Saline county since 1870, was found
dead by Hobson Swallow, a farmer
living near Bavaria. The body was
found at the crossroads nine miles
west of Salina and, one and a half
miles north of Bavaria. Bacon had
been in Salina and it Is believed that
he fell from his wagon while driving
home and broke his neck. Coroner
Seitz, Under Sheriff Heck and Deputy
County Attorney Litowich were noti
ced and after viewing the body and
questioning the neighbors, decided
that no Inquest was necessary.
Killed by Threshing Machine.
tauis Klerfele, of Hop, who was
crushed some time ago between a
separator and a threshing engine, died
Irom the result of Ms Injuries.
Lett Leg Under Train. A young
man named Ed Huntley, 20 years ot
age, received an Injury at Alta Vista
that caused the amputation of his
right limb at the knee joint. It seems
that the young man was attempting
to board a through freight, and la
seme way slipped and was pulled un
der the train and his limb crushed. .
Buying paint used to bo like the
proverbial buying of a "pig in a
poke." Mixtures in which chalk,
ground rock, etc., predominated were
marked and sold as "Pure White
Lead," the deception not being ap
parent until tho paint and the paint
ing were paid for. This deception is
still practiced, but we have learned to
expose it easily.
National Lead Company, the larg
est makers of genuine Pure White
Lead, realizing the injustice that was
being done to both property owners
and honest paint manufacturers, set
about to make paint buying safe.
They first adopted a trade mark, the
now famous "Dutch-Boy Painter," and
put this trademark, as a guaranty of
purity, on every package of their
White Lead. They then sot about
familiarizing the public with the
blow-pipe test by which the purity
and genuineness of White Lead may
be determined, and furnished a blow
pipe free to every one who would
write them for It. This action wa3 In
itself a guaranty of the purity of Na
tional Lead Company's White Lead.
As tho result of this open dealing
the paint buyer to-day has only him
self to blame If he Is defrauded. For
test outfit and valuable boo'.det on
painting, address National Lead Com
pany, Woodbridge Bldg., New York.
A wise man is apt to know when he
has enough before he gets it.

A Westernized Proverb.
Out In Nevada It is said that they
change the old adage "Death loves a
shining mark" to "Death loves a min
ing shark." Western Christian Advo
cate. Her Reserved Seat.
It was raining and the car was sop
ping wet. Most of the passengers
stood, but there are always excep
tions. One big pink man with a snowy
beard defied rheumatism and wet
cloth by plumping himself down on
one of the drippy seats. His presum
able wife, with a laughing explanation
that she was tired, seated herself in
his lap. And when the conductor
came along to collect fares she in
quired, with the earnestness of one
who seeks knowledge:
"Do I have to pay extra for a re
served seat?"
The conductor spoke no words that
could go resounding down the corri
dors of time. He just grinned, and
the passengers grinned with him.
One Secret "Tootsie" Surely Never
Would Pass Along.
"John, love," said the young wife,
"you oughtn't to have any secrets from
'"Well, Tootsie?"
"You go to lodge meetings, and you
never tell me anything about them."
"They wouldn't interest you, dear.
I don't mind giving you the password,
though, if you'll promise never to dis
close it to n living soul."
"I'll promise never to tell it to any
body." "Remember it's to be repeated only
once and very rapidly."
"I'll remember. What is it?"
"What? Please say it again, a lit
tle slower."
"Have you forgotten the conditions
already? I said 'only once and very
rapidly.' "
(Tearful pause.)
"0, dear! 1 wish you hadn't told
me!" "
Restored Hope and Confidence.
After several years of Indigestion
and Its attendant evil Influence on the
mind, it Is not very surprising that
one finally loses faith in things gen
erally. A N. Y. woman writes au Interesting
letter. She says:
"Three years ago I suffered from
an attack of peritonitis which left me
in a most miserable condition. For
over two years I suffered from nerv
ousness, weak heart, shortness of
breath, could not sleep, etc.
"My appetite was ravenous, but I
felt starved all the time. I had plenty
of food but It did not nourish me
because of Intestinal Indigestion. Med
ical treatment did not seem to help,
I got discouraged, stopped medicine
and did not care much whether I lived
or died.
"One day a friend asked me why I
didn't try Grape-Nuts, stop drinking
coSfee, and use Postum. I had lost
faith In everything, but to please my
friends I began to use both and soon
became very fond of them.
"It wasn't long before I got some
strength, felt a decided change in my
system, hope sprang up In my heart
and slowly but surely 1 got better. I
could sleep very well, the constant
craving for food ceased and I have
better health now than before the at
tack of peritonitis.
"My husband and I are still using
Grape-Nuts and Postum." "There's a

Smoking Car Just the One Old Woman
Was Looking For.
"Madam," said the brakoman as the
train stopped at a village station and
a little old woman started to enter
the smoking car, "the car back is the
one you want."
"How do you know?" lie tartly
"Because this is the smoking car."
She pushed past him and climbed
up the steps, and after taking a seat
she pulled out and filled a pipe, struck
a match on tho sole of her sdwe, and
after drawing a few puffs she said to
a man smoking a cigar across the

Fine Y. M. C. A. Building Planned.
A Young Men's Christian Associa
tion building that cost to build and
equip more thau a million dollars is
to be opened in Philadelphia this fall,
with Walter M. Wood of Chicago in
charge as secretary. An effort is to be
made to recruit the membership to
4,000, so that the largest possible
number of boys may have the bene
fits of the new structure. Phlladel
phians are proudly pointing to the
eight-story building in Arch street as
one of the three finest Young Men's
Christian Association homes in the
world, the other two being the
Twenty-third street branch, In New
York, and the central building in Chi
cago. Only when a girl has a man where
he must face tho parson with her or
pose as the defendant in a breach-of
promise suit will she admit that she
has corns.
