When in the early morning the day’s affairs press on one’s attention beforehand, and there comes a wonder of how in the world everything is to he accomplished; when every interruption is received impatiently, and the clock is watched in distress ns the moments flit past — then the mind tires the body. Wears wrong to drive ourselves with whip and spur in this way. Each of us is prom ised strengt h for the day, and we must not wear ourselves out, says the Di etetic and Hygienic Gazette.* If only we keep cool and calm, we shall lie less wearied when we reach the eventide.

Manitowoc, Wji THE AKCTIC PROBLEM Walter Wellman, the Explorer, De clares He Holds Its Solution. Dlaeusaea Ibe Kfforla Made to Reach the North Poliv-Say* Earth's Maa nertlc Pole Should lie Reached This Year. Walter Wellman, in a letter to the New York World, says he knows how the north pole can be reached, and will put his knowledge at the service of an earnest pole seeker. He writes us fol lows: “So fur us 1 know, the only arctic expeditions planned for 1903 are those of William Ziegler, of New York, with the north pule as its objective, and Prof. Ainimdeen, of Norway, de signed to locate the earth’s magnetic pole. Tin latter is a comparatively easy tusk, and should be accomplished during the year. It is highly important for the purposes of science that the magnetic pole he occasionally visited, and that studies be made of the phe nomena of which it is one of the two centers. “The north magnetic pole lies in the. northern part of North America, about 2,000 statute miles from the north pole. The south magnetic pole, occu pying a relative position in the antarc tic, has never been! reached by man, Capt. Horchgrevinek having been no nearer than 220 miles. So many obsta cles lie in the way of reaehingtheiiorth pole that the feat is not likely to be soon performed. Many efforts during the past century —and notably during tiie past 25 years —failed, though man’s approach to the northern termination of the axis of our earth has been nar rowed down to a matter of 239 miles. “The Ziegler expedition of 1901-1902 was a wretched failure, and arctic stu dents are not optimistic as to the re sults of the forthcoming effort. Mr. Ziegler provides the funds with splen did generosity, but His agents dissipate them upon the mistaken principle that elaborateness of outfit spells success. “The truth is, attainment of the north pole is a matter of men, not of money. Of course the tools of the trade must he employed—a ship, dogs, sledges, special food, etc. —but beyond that the prime elements are the knowl edge gained by actual experience, spe cial adaptation of means to the end in view, muscle, pluck and luck. Asa rule, the simpler the outfit the better. That stern friend of knowledge, Sir John Hamm, said: ‘The north pole is ‘.he only place in the world we know nothing about, and that stain of ig norance should he removed from this enlightened age.’ “Having made a special, practical field study of the art of arctic travel, 1 assert that 1 know how the north pole can he reached, and this informa tion I will willingly give anyone who will utilize it in advancing the frontier of knowledge to the very center of the unknown region of the north.” HE WAS A “WISE INDIAN.” Story Related by Uintah Reservation Agent About Two of Ills Red Ch rgea. Indians soon part with their money. And in doing so theyi frequently dis play remarkable traits of business character. Agent Myton, of the Uin tah reservation, tells of a number of partings with the lucre incident to his recent payments of rental and' other incomes. An hour after one old'buck received $275 in cash he was seen driv ing about the reservation in a splen did two-horse carriage. The Indian had no means of carting the products of his range or fields, no wagon, no cow, little clothing and less to eat. Reprimanded for his improvidence, ho replied that “white man rides in car riages! why not Indian?” He was told that he should have purchased a com mon heavy wagon, such as could ho used for farm work; and another In dian’s purchase of such a wagon was told to him as a wise purchase. The Indian grunted at every word, looked, troubled, but gave no evidence of be ing favorably impressed, relates the Salt Lake Tribune. Next day Agent .Myton saw bis In dian of spendthrifty inclinations rid ing about in just such a wagon as bad been named fur him, and upon inquiry it was learned that he hud traded ids $250 carriage for the wagon; that as soon as he had been upbraided the pre vious day he didn’t do a thing but hunt up the “wise Indian who had bought a jolt wagon” and propose u trade. "How did you tradeV” was asked. “Carriage his, wagon mine," was the reply. The trade was vehicle for vehicle! The farm wagon cost the first purchaser S7O, the carriage $250. The wise Indian took the carriage hack to the seller and got two wagons, two sets of har ness, blankets, and a number of other necessaries. When the first Indian was told of the trade made by the In dian who got his carriage he expressed no regret. He simply grunted, shrugged his shoulders and exclaimed: ‘He wise Indian!” FoldinK a Tablecloth. When not In use a tablecloth should be kept in folded creases, and when brought out to be spread should be laid on the table and un folded its entire length (the width being doubled), with the center crease along the center of the table. Then the half breadth that is folded should be turned back and the cloth will hang evenly. Careless servants often gather up a cloth “anyhow,” without taking the trouble to fold It up again in Its own ere .- s, and thus fresh ones are made. A table cloth will last fresh looking us long again if it is always folded up after iU own folds and put away until the next meal.—Washington Star. OLD ROAD-HOUSE TRAGEDIES. Kent Ilonfelry Tht Had Far slaked Accommudationa for Many Noted Men. On the turnpike leading to Louis ville, about 15 miles north of Bards town, there stood for years an old house that had an interesting his tory. The house was erected in 17‘Jl, many years before there was any pike through this part of tlie state, and was used as a tavern and a stop ping place for the stage coaches when a change of horses was made. It had frequently for its guests such men as Henry Clay, Richard M. John son, John C. Breckinridge, Judge John Kowau, Gov. Charles A. Wick liffe, and many others of note. In the early twenties the inn passed into the hands of Capt. James Camp, who continued to run it as a tavern. While living there Camp’s wife was riding horseback with several others and was thrown from her horse and killed. This was the beginning of many tragic happenings afterward connected with the place, says the Bardstown (Ky.) Standard. A few years after this a traveler named John Beyuolds stopped over night at the inn. As he failed to ap pear the next morning, a servant was sent in search of him. Being unable to arouse him he entered the room and found Beynolds stiff and cold in death. He had shot himself during the night. A few, years later the old tavern became famous for its lavish style of entertainment. It was frequently the scene of great festivities. During the progress of a ball one night a tragedy occurred which shocked the whole country for miles around. Two young men, Hubert Harris and William North, were suitors for the hand of Capt. Camp’s daughter. Harris, on account of wealth, social position, and good looks was the favored suitor, which so enraged North that he determined to seek revenge. Harris, who was baldheaded, wore a wig. During the evening in ques tion while the guests were dancing North approached Harris, who was dancing with Miss Camp, snatched off his wig. and threw it upon the floor. Harris uttered not a word, but quickly turned upon his heel drew a Spanish dagger and plunged it to the hilt in the heart of North, who fell to the floor. The tragic event brought the hall to a sudden close. Harris had the sympathy of the entire community and public sentiment was so in his favor that he was never even arrest ed for the deed. The crime over shadowed his life. He never married, avoided women’s society, and became a recluse. About n year later a stranger named Golson stopped at The old tavern for the night and was assigned to the room in which Reynolds had taken his life. A few hours after retiring the report of a gun was heard and upon investigation it was found that Golson had shot himself through the heart. It was afterward ascertained that Golson had lost heavily at cards in Louisville and. be coming despondent, ended his life. He was a native, of Nashville and was on his way to that place. Other incidents of a tragic nature occurred at the old inn. and it was finally deserted and fell into decay. At (his time only a few moss-covered stones and a heap of earth mark the place where the old building stood. GIFTS OF THE WEST. Out of Her Bounty HuvrComo er of n Nation Which Con quers the World. The west gave to the world l such types ;is the farmer Thomas Jeffer son, with his declaration of independ ence, his statute for religious tolera tion, ami his purchase of Louisiana. She gave us Andrew Jackson, that fierce Tennessee spirit who broke down the traditions of conservative rule, swept away the privacies anil privileges of officialdom, and 1 , like a Gothic leader, opened the temple of (hi' nation to the populace. She gave us Abraham Lincoln, whose gaunt frontier form and gnarled, massive hand told of the conflict with the for est, whose grasp on the ax handle of the pioneer was no tinner than his 1 grasp of the helm of the ship of slate, as it breasted the seas of civil war, writes Fredrick .1. Turner, in Atlantic. She gave us the tragedy of the pioneer | farmer as he marched daringly on to the conquest of the arid lands, and met his first defeat by forces too strong to be dealt with under the old condi ; lions. She has furnished to this new | democracy her stores of mineral I wealth, that dwarf those of the old ! world, and her provinces that in themselves are vaster and more pro ductive than most of the nations of Europe. Out of her Iwmnty has come i a nation whose industrial comjieti tion alarms the. old world, and whose masters of her resources wield wealth and power vaster than the wealth and power of kings.

Belief In Token# of 111 Omen la Nal Confined to the lowly and Ignorant. Fow people who have not a little grain of superstition in their make up and the average man will try to get rid of any article, however valu able it may be, which he becomes convinced is a hoodoo to him. Such an article is the “violin of death” which now lies buried on Diamond hill, near Honolulu, says the New York Press. This violin, which had been an ordinary musical instrument before, suddenly developed fatal at tributes, and within a space of six months two persons who owned it successively committed suicide and a third person mysteriously disap peared and was never found. The violin then came into the possession of George U. Scott, a sergeant in the Sixty-ninth battery coast artillery. The violin had by this time become well known as a hoodoo and Scott after awhile became afraid of the malign influence and buried it, at Dia mond hill. Hut the hoodoo still worked, for not long after Scott killed himself. The story of the Indian idol with a bad reputation for causing disaster which was presented to President Carnot of France shortly before he was assassinated is well known, but the story of that Idol is no more wonderful than that of one owned by a resident of Hokiangi, New Zea land. It was presented to him by a Maori chief and be lias vainly tried to get rid of it, believing that it brings disaster upon him. Once he. threw it under the wheels of a rail road train and in running to get out of the way fell and broke two lingers. He was arrested for frying to wreck the train, while the image came off unharmed. Once he threw it into the sea and it was fished out hy a sailor, who returned it to him, and in his rage in not getting a reward beat him until he was nearly dead. The idol is about two feel high and is composed of rosewood and ebony. The owner proposes to burn it as the only way of making an end. If all that the New Zealander tells about his hoodoo idol is true the image is> a near relative of the one written about by Ansty in bis “Fallen Idol.” Napoleon the Great had two rings which lie believed brought him good luck and which he constantly wore. These rings were inherited hy Na poleon 111. and were as constantly worn by him. When Napoleon 111. died and was buried it was proposed to take the rings from his lingers and gi\e them to the prince imperial. Hut the prince would not have them, although the old retainers of the family prophesied all sorts of dire things from his refusal. When th< unfortunate young man was killed in Zuluhmd those who believed in the prohpeey of the rings said: “I told you so.” The list of celebrated mascots is a long one. Hoodoos of distinction are. fortunately, less frequently heard about, though nearly every body has at some time in his life pos sessed some article which he believed brought him ill luck.

INDIANS WERE HOMESICK. Two \ovoJu BurUa Who Didn't Cara to l.ld#T in the Motrovolltiii Hldvt. W. K. Johnson, an independent mis sionary among the Navajo Indians of northern Arizona, was lately speeding a few days in Kansas City looking after business connected with his work, lie brought with him two Navajo bucks with the usual unpronounceable names. She-She-Nief and Pesh-lu-Ki- Et-Sette are the auspicious titles of these braves, the former meaning “long man of his tribe” and the latter signifying "the silversmith.” The two Indians accompanying Mr. Johnson, says a local report, intended to remain here for some days taking in the sights, but were finally over come by homesickness and requested the missionary to send them back to their squaws and sheep. Mr. Johnson says that there are about 20,000 Navajo Indians in north ern Arizona. Over a third of them live on their own or rented land and draw no money from the government. These Indians are poor, but independent, and do not depend upon Uncle Sam’s bounties for a living, but earn their daily bread mostly by raising sheep and making Navajo blankets, which have become famous throughout the clothing markets of the United States. Although civilized in many of their customs, the Navajos live in little hovels consisting of a framework of [toles covered by dirt. APPLES AS LIFE-SAVERS.

A number of years ago the late W il liam Uettew, who resided* in the vil age, diseovered a number of squirrels in the garret of his house and eared for them.

The number multiplied rapidly and they gradually established homes in the trees in the woodland near his home. The worst enemy of the pray squirrel is the red squirrel, and Mr. Uettew be gan a war of extermination ag.upst the latter, which he kept up until his death. Then his son continued the *vork, and to-day I here are hundreds of gray squirrels in the woods fora mile around the village, but few red ones.
