' Every man who has attempted country courses in all their varied development hat grown to look with something of pain into the twinkling eye of the friend who tells him, while leading him over to the prospec tive course, that it is a trifle "sporty." But here are the true "sporty" links in the course at Singapore: "Singapore is only 80 miles from the equator. It averages about 82 degrees at midnight. I played golf once, just nine holes, and then quit, and I was a spectacle-^ fairly wet through. We played over a Chi nese graveyard, around tne lunatic asylum and hospital, and finished on the lawn of the orphan asylum. "The links are very sporty, the tombs serving for bunkers and other hazards, while a ball driven over the wall of the lunatic asylum is lost and you lose stroke and distance. The tombs are alowly being hacked to pieces by the wild efforts of the players to get the balls out of the crevices in the bricks." — Collier's Weekly.__ Sleep Chasses the Verdict. The jury in a recent, law suit unanimously agreed upon the verdict, sealed it and went home to bed. After sleeping over it, they went home the next morning. This shows the power of sleep to strengthen the human mind. Those who are troubled with insom nia shoullld try Hostetter's Stomach Bitters.

KING TO BUT ANYTHING ADVEKTI8ED IN ITS COLUMNS SHOULD INSIST UPON HATING WHAT THAT ASK SOB. EE FUSING ALL SUBST ITU T E S OB IMITATIONS. BOW TO ADJUST EYEGLASSES. Instructions by an Opt tel»» Which Hla Caatoaiera Will Not Al ways Heed. "Oh, yes," said the- optician às he fit ted a pair of glasses on the Tfosc of a customer. "There is an art in putting on nose glasses and at least a half of the people who wear glasses don't know how to put them on. The result is that the moment they begin to perspire a little or when they shake their heads or make any unusual movement, off go the glasses smash on the floor or more often the sidewalk. Of course we op ticians don't kick, for that very thing gives us a good part of our business. There is a good profit in putting in new lenses. Really the only' sensible glasses to wear are spectacles. They fasten over the ears and they never fall off and they don't get out of adjustment. They fit on the same place every time and the eye looks through the center of the lens as it should look. But most people think that spectacles make them look older or something like that and they insist on nose glasses. Then they don't know how to put them on* and if they don't get them just right the eyes don't look through the center of the lenses, and if there is any disorder of the vision other than nearsightedness the improperly adjusted glasses often do more harm than good, to say. noth ing of the expense from breakage. Now, madam, if you feel you must wear glasses instead of spectacles take them like this." He took the glasses and held them perfectly level before him, says the New York Sun. "Stretch them, wide apart and approach the nose like this." He advanced them toward the tip of the nose; "now raise them up so." Still holding the glasses so that the springs stretched wide over the nose he ad vanced them upward until the upper points of the clips were directly under the eyebrows. "Now let go," said he. The glasses were on firm. "Shake your head," said- he. The customer shook her head. The glasses wiggled, but did not fall off. "You see," sàid the optician, "you can't shake them off. They sit perfect ly and just fit the eye. You don't want anything better than that, do you? Now try putting them on yourself." The customer pat them off and at tempted to put them back. She got them oft askew. "No! no! no!" said the optician, "that's all WTong," and* he showed her over again how it should be done. It took six times trying before the cus tomer mastered the knack andi went away happy. "She'll be back in a month," said- the optician, "wanting one or two new lenses to replace her broken ones. Now I've shown her exactly how to put them on, but she'll get careless after awhile and will forget all about it. I can al ways tell about that by the way they catch on to the knack of adjusting them when they first put them om People who have to wear glasses at all should wear spectacles. But if they will wear nose clips they must learn how to adjust them or they'll ruin their eyes and break their pockets at the same time. Women are no worse than men- in that. I've got one custom er who paid me last year $50 for new lenses. That's about one dollar a week, and I can't get him to wear spectacles yet." __ SPAIN'S COLONY IN AFRICA. She I« Trying at Last to Tara the Rio de Oro Province to Good Accomnt. Now that Spain has lost all her large colonies, she is doing all she can and encouraging every effort on the part of her people to develop the small colo nial possessions still remaining to her, particularly in Africa, says the New \ork Sun. Spain's largest possession in Africa is tJie district of Rio de Oro, south pf Morocco. It fronts on the At lantic between Capes Bojador and Hlanco for about 500 miles, and ex tends inland from 420 miles in the north to 600 miles in the south. This territory is about one-twelfth as large as the United States, but inland it is mostly sand, and development is pos sible on an important scale only in the coast regions, unless minerals may be found in the interior. Spain's ambition is to make the most of the fertile strip along the coast, developing plantations to supply Spain with a variety of tropical products and establishing trading posts for goods of Spanish origin, which may be ex changed with the natives for their gold dust and ostrich feathers. Induce ments, therefore, are being offered to a considerable number of farmers and traders to go to this new region and make it worth something to the home country. A mineral survey of the region isnow under way. It is quite certain that in some parts considerable gold* may be obtained, particularly along the Rio de Oro. The Spaniards will also en deavor, unless France too strenuously opposes the idea, to divert some of the trade from Timbuctoo to their port on the coast and thus establish direct trade relations with the fertile Sou dan. Up to this time Spain had en tirely neglected this great possession in Africa and it is scarcely probable that its development would now have been undertaken if Spain still had her former large colonial interests to ab sorb her attention.

"I waa thinking," was the reply. "I rode from Toledo to Buffalo with the prettiest girl I ever saw." "But that didn't hurt yon. Who waa she?" "Can't tell." "You didn't introduce yourself and get her card in return?" "No." "No particular trouble, eh?" solicitously insisted the clerk. "Well, it was this way," replied the trav eler, as he braced up for the explanation. "She sat opposite me, you know, and I tried for an hour to catch her eye. Sne simply ig nored me and gazed out of the window. Then I rose and handed her a magazine, but she declined with thanks. Ten minutes later I bought the latest novel out, but she said she didn't care to read. Then I bought some fruit, but she would accept none. She also ignored me when I tried to draw her out on music." "But you persisted ?" "Oh, yes. That is, I was about to make another attempt to enter into conversation when the train came to a halt at a town and the girl beckoned me over. I was there in an instant, and with the sweetest smile you ever saw she asked me if I would do her a slight favor." "With all my heart," I hastened to say. "Well," she said, smiling even more sweetly, "suppose you leave the train here and take the next one that follows, for you have made me dead tired, and I feel like taking a nap." "Good gracious," whispered the clerk. "Yes, sir," said the drummer, as he reached for a cigar, "and I want to go up to my room and sit and think and try and figure it out. Perhaps it's time I left the road and settled down at home."__ Moltnm In Parvo Prayer. Georgie's mother insisted upon his repeat ing the prayer of childhood.

Prie»* Raahe» "Slate*».* In his history of New York , ob« of th# classic« of American authorship«, Diedrick Knickerbocker (Washington Irving) wrot# lovingly, yet with unctuous sarcasm, of the beauties and traditions of nis loved "Kieu Netherlands," tho peaceful valley of tha Hudson from Albany to Manhattan, tha many legend* with which ths entire region abounds—notably that of Rip Van Winklo and his long sleep—and of the ancient name« and families whose descendants are still a power in that locality. So far-reaebing were the effects of tha "History" that in time tbs name "Knickerbocker" became the popular one for the patron saint of New York City, he usually being represented as a benignant old German of ample girth, clutching firmly the long-stemmed clay pipe which Irving im mortalized and gazing over his beloved City. Recognizing tne vein of aentiment in the American people long ago a train service was inaugurated to New York from St. Louis to which Father Knickerbocker lent his name and through the efforts of the line which introduced the service the "Knicker bocker Special" has become as familiar to the average traveled American as to the res idents of nis own City. Leaving St. Louis at noon, the traveler is borne swiftly and safe ly to Father Knickerbocker's abode, trav ersing by daylight those scenes with which he was so familiar, arriving at New York the next day in time for a leisurely preparation for evening. So popular has the service proven that tha Big Four has started a new train as a com panion, it leaving St. Lonis 8:00 A. M., re ceiving all Western and Southwestern con nections and arriving in New York at 2:55 the next day. This train is known as the New York and Boston Limited, but the way farer who travels much will call it Number Sixteen in emulation of his railroad breth ren and inquire if "she" is on time.

Cascara Sagrada has no equal aa a liver and in testinal tonic among all the drugs known to medicino. All physicians throughout tho world regard it ns one of the most valuable of all drugs. It Is strictly tonic In its action and effect on the liver and bowels, and there is positively no reaction from its use. as is the case with every other cine that acts specifically on the liver, such for Instance as calomel, aloes jalap, podophyllin and similar drugs.
