Thie Metric System.
The amusing feature of the present
con-trovei^sy concerning the metric
system, in which one party holds to
the yard and pound as consecrated
Anglo-Saxon standards, is that the
United States' fundamental legal
standards of length and mass are the
meter and the kilogram respectively,
and not the yard and pound. The yard
is legally expi essed as the 3,600-3.937th
part of a meter. ? Detroit Free Press.
A Little Early Riser
now and then, at bedtime will cure
constipation, billiousness and liver
troubles. DeWitt's Little Early Risers
are the famons little pills that cure
by arousing the secretions, moving
the bowels gently yet effectually, and
giving such tone and strength to the
glands of the stomach and liver that
the cause of the trouble is removed
entirely, and if their use is continued
for a few days, there will be no re- 1
turn of the complaint. Sold by G. ;

Tho attraction at Proctor's Fifth
avenue next week will be another
comedy drama from the fluent pen of
Joseph Arthur, whose several succ
essful plays have been seen on and off

years trip abroad, where they have
been playing all the leading theatres
and musio hails of Europe. Julian
Rose, "Our Hebrew Friend," will
play this theatre for the first time in
two years.
Old Dean Swift's "Gulliver
Travels" are not such exaggerations
after all. Pay a visit next week to
Proctor's 58th Street Theatre and you
will see the Lilliputians and the
Brobdignagians, and an excruciatingly
funnv lot they are.
