m The Barber and Emancipation.
\ ‘‘Well, you see,” said Lincoln once, fwe have got to be mighty cautious mow we manage the negro question. If we’re not we shall be like the bar ber out in Illinois who was shaving a fellow with a hatchet face and lan tern jaws like mine. ‘‘The barber put his finger in his customer’s mouth to make his cheeks stick out, but while shaving away he cut through the fellow’s face and cut eff his own finger. If we don’t play smart about the negro we shall do as the barber did.” School of Window Dressing. Although the Viennese shop win dows are generally considered to be the most artistically arranged of any capital in Europe, the tradesmen complain of the increasing difficulty they experience in getting first-class \ artists for this lyorlc. A special win dow dressing school is now to be established, says the London Globe, in which young men and women may I obtain a thorough technical training in this branch of shop-keeping. How the Japanese Workman Lives. The Japanese laborer receives poor wages, but his food is very cheap. He subsists mainly on coarse rice, of which he has one meal a day. Some times, by way of a change, he has the heads of fish or the insides of fowls instead. He has water to drink, but on festive occasions he has sake, the wine of Japan, which tastes some thing like sherry. He also has to pay for a mat to sleep on at night. —. PURE FOOD No Food Commissioner of any State has ever attacked the absolute purity of Grape-Nuts. Every analysis undertaken shows this food to be made strictly of Wheat and Barley, treated by our processes to partially transform the starch parts into a form of Sugar, and there fore much easier to digest. Our claim that it is a “Food for Brain and Nerve Centres" is based' upon the fact that certain parts of Wheat and Barley (which we use) contain Nature’s brain- and nerve building ingredients, viz., Phosphate of Potash, and the way we prepare the food makes it easy to digest and assimilate. Dr. Geo. W. Carey in his book on '‘The Biochemic System of Medicine” , says: [,^v-.“,When the medical profession fully ' 'understands the nature and range of the phosphate of potassium, insane ■ asylums will no longer be needed. “The gray matter of the brain is controlled entirely by the inorganic cell-salt, potassium phosphate. “This salt unites with albumen, and by the addition of oxygen creates nerve-fluid, or the gray matter of the brain. “Of course, there is a trace of other salts and other organic matter in nerve-fluid, but potassium phosphate Is the chief factor, and has the power within itself to attract, by its own law of affinity, all things needed to manufacture the elixir of life. There fore, when nervous symptoms arise, due to the fact that the nerve-fluid has been exhausted from any cause, the phosphate of potassium is the only true remedy, because nothing else can possibly supply the de ficiency. The ills arising from too rapidly consuming the gray matter of the brain cannot be overestimated. “Phosphate of Potash, is to my mind, the most wonderful curative agent ever discovered by man, and the blessings it has already conferred on the race are many. But ‘what shall the harvest be’ when physicians Everywhere fully understand the part this wonderful salt plays in the pro cesses of life? It will do as much as can be done through physiology to make a heaven on earth. “Let the overworked business mau take it and go home good-tempered. /-Let the weary wife, nerves unstrung from attending to sick children or en tertaining company, take it and note how quickly the equilibrium will be restored and calm and reason assert her throne. No ‘provings’ are re quired here. We find this potassium salt largely predominates in nerve fluid, and that a deficiency produces well-defined symptoms. The begin ning and end of the matter is to sup ply the lacking principle, and in molecular form, exactly as nature furnishes it in vegetables, fruits and grain. To supply deficiencies—this is tiie only law of cure.” Please observe that Phosphate of Potash Is not properly of the drug shop variety but is best prepared by “Old Mother Nature” and stored in the grains ready for use by mankind. Those who have been helped to better 1 health by the use of Grape-Nuts arei legion. “There’s a Reason.” BtiAIN POWER Increased by Proper Feeding. A lady writer who not only has done good literary work, but reared a family, found in. Grape-Nuts the ,.„Jdeal food for brain work and to de velop healthy children. She writes: “I am an enthusiastic proclaimer of Grape-Nuts as a regular diet. 1 for merly had no appetite in the morning and for 8 years while nursing my four children, had Insufficient nourishment I for them. “Unable to eat breakfast I felt faint later, arid would go to the pantry and eat cold chops, sausage, cookies, doughnuts or anything I happened to find. Being a writer, at times my head felt heavy and my brain asleep. “When I read of Grape-Nuts I be gan eating it every morning, also gave it to the children, including my 10 months old baby, who soon grew as fat as a little pig, good natured and contented. “I wrote evenings and feeling the need of sustained brain power, began eating a small saucer of Grape-Nuts with milk, Instead of my usual indi gestible hot pudding, pie, or cake for dessert at night. “I grew plump, nerves strong, and yhen I wrote my brain was active and clear; indeed, the dull head pain never returned.” POSTUM CEREAL CO., Ltd., Battle Creek, Miclt | Valentine (Novelties ■ For February festivities that take place on or near the fourteenth of the month, there are this year a host of charming novelties. The old-fash ioned valentines are, of course, out of date for everybody but children, yet the sentiment of the day still lingers in the hearts and darts and paste board Cupids used on the new candy boxes. What, for instance, could be a prettier remembrance for any young man to give his “best girl,” or even a young woman for whom he had no particular regard but to whose family he was indebted for invitations to dinner or tea, dances or other func tions of the season, than one of these candy-boxes? Two different styles are shown on this page—one covered with bright-red paper and decorated with a big bow of red ribbon, having in the centre Cupid himself, with his bow and arrows; the other simpler, but just as effective, covered with white crepe paper and decorated with a gilt arrow pierced through two hearts. If these boxes are wanted for souvenirs at luncheons or parties they can easily be made at home by a clever girl, for the crepe paper is very simple to manipulate. The heart shaped pasteboard boxes can be bought ready-made at most stationery stores, and the hearts and arrows cut out of red and gold paper respec tively, declares McCall’s Magazine. Even easier to make is the little round box shown at the top of thr left-hand corner of this group. Any of paste, and a twist of baby ribbon. The white ice cream basket is made in exactly the same way, with the substitution of white paper for red and a little pasteboard Ciyfid stuck on the handle in place of the heart and arrow. The favors for a valen tine dance, children’s party or cotil lion are simply fancy paper hearts fastened on slender sticks, wound with paper and decorated with ribbon streamers. The candle shade makes a most effective table decoration. It is of white paper, decorated with red hearts and gold arrows, and the top and bottom of the shade are fin ished with twists of the paper touched up with gold paint. St. Valentine’s Day was originally the day dedicated to the incoming of spring. The Romans kept it in honor of Pan and Juno, and the festival, which lasted several days, was called “Lupercalia.” The early Christian church, desiring to effect a change in this much-abused feast, very adroitly reconstituted the old practice of the lottery of lovers’ names. In place of the names of real youths and maid ens, whose appellations, written on slips of paper, were drawn by the young people of the time, the church substituted the names of the saints. The idea had its own beauty, and the notion of dedication was thus pre served in a more spiritual sense than Jn the old Roman festival. This feast, and not the existence of the real St. I Valentine, is the origin of the gallant Zyf/ v * CANDY-BOX •F'WHlTtiftfcpE CAPI CANDY>OOX "WlTFi—l RED HEART CANDY-BOX WIT* -DECORATED VlTH HEARTS ' ‘ DOW AND^Rt^V ___ MINIATURE: CUPID AND ARROWS // , A NOVEL Jg&iJtiBy ICfc-CRtAn charlotte-.russe box , ^A HEART CANDLfc-3HADf round pasteboard box can be used as a foundation for this. It is covered with white crepe paper and a big red heart pasted in the centre. It adds to the appearance if the edges of the box are touched up with a line of gold paint, as shown in our illustration. For serving refreshments at a val entine party there is nothing more effective than heart and arrow ice cream or charlotte russe boxes, and the best thing about them is that they can be so easily and quickly made. Buy some rather thin bright-red pasteboard at a stationery store, and also a sheet of white pasteboard. Then get some of the ordinary pleated paper cases tha* are used for char lotte russe, bisnuit glace, etc. An arrow is cut out of the white paste board, painted gold or covered with gilt paper and pasted across the large heart that has just been cut from the red pasteboard. A circle is then cut out, of the heart, through arrow and all, the ice cream box inserted in the opening and held in place with a little paste. The paper baskets can be even more quickly made, the foundation being the same sort of pleated paper case. In making the red paper basket, this is given a handle formed of wire, with red crepe paper twisted around it and a heart and arrow pasted at the top. The paper itself Is simply covered with a frill of red paper, held in place by just a touch observances of the day; for it would be very hard to say which of the three early Christian bishops so named the 14th of February is intended to com memorate. Some St. Valentine “llon’ts.” Remember that you want to enjoy the St. Valentine party as well as your guests; therefore observe these rules: Don’t fret and worry every hour of the preceding day until you are ner vous and sensitive to everything that goes wrong. Don’t rush your games too close on each other's heels. Young people like to talk. Don’t seem to be making an effort to entertain them at every moment. Suggest the games when the talking grows a little less spirited. That Little Valentine Boy. His other name is Cupid. That is what the old Romans called him. He had still another name given him by the early Greeks, Eros. But what ever he may be called, he is the same jolly little sprite that you paint, draw or paste on your valentines as the love fairy. He looks very harmless with his chubby-baby cheeks and his loving eyes. But look at him closely and you will find in those eyes sparks of mischief glinting through the love, like points of mica in a quartz rock. MAKING V AIiENTINES. “Tying Love-Knots.” A picturesque St. Valentine con test, which will not cost the hostess but a few dimes, is to provide each girl with a length of colored satin ribbon, suggests The Delineatior. This is the only apparatus needed for the game of "Tying Love-Knots." Each man is to be the timekeeper for each girl and he must talkHo her all the time she is tying an artistic love-knot out of the ribbon. He keeps his watch in hand, and tries to divert her attention and make her answer his questions. Three minutes is the time limit, and if she succeeds in making the knot, he must wear it through the evening, pinned to his cravat. If she fails she must keep at it until she succeeds. A Vindictive Glee. “I hope I shall get a few comic val entines,” said Miss Cayenne. “You hope to get some comic val entines?” “Yes. Every one you get is a sure sign that you have made some enemy feel perfectly wretched,” A. Dream of Beauty. A valentine dining room is a dream of beauty with the walls hung with green vines and pink hearts. In the centre of the table have a heart of white snowdrops with pink ribbons running to each plate, which is also marked by a pink heart name card or namented with a bunch of snowdrops for the ladies and a pink carnation for the gentlemen. Serve oysters or chicken in heart shaped pastry shells, tomato or "love apple” salad, ices or cream in heart shaped forms and cakes in the same shape iced in pink. Gaining in Favor. A souvenir of St. Valentine’s Day which is gaining in favor is the box of assorted sweets. These bon-bon boxes are heart shaped, sometimes jeweled, of gold or silver, though latterly hand painted ones ride the top wave of popular favor, the price being in proportion. An ostrich may be stripped of its plumage every eight months. MYSTERY IN THIS INDIAN SKELETON. Bones ot Savage Clothed in Brigidier Ceneral’s Uniform Are Unearlhed in Texas, The skeleton of what was prob ably once a famous Indian chief has been taken from a lonely and un marked grave at the top of one of the Twin Mountains, ten miles east of the spot where once stood the his- j toric old fort of Camp Colorado. "Jim” Byrd, a farmer, who dis covered the skeleton, has lived near Twin Mountains for nearly fifty years and has no recollection of any human body ever having been burled there. His twelve-year-old son was on a hunting expedition last week and strolled to the top of the West Twin Mountain when he suddenly came upon two big brass rings lying half embedded in the yellow clay of the hillside. The rings had a most antiquated appearance and at once excited the curiosity of the youthful Nimrod and he took them to his fattier, who decided to make a fur ther investigation. With pick and shovel the father and son began digging at the spot where the rings had been found, and had hardly scratched the surface of the earth when they uncovered the bones of a human being. By care ful work the clay was removed from all sides of the bones and the sight that greeted the eyes of the ex plorers was most strange and fasci nating. Tattered remnants of what was once a United States army uni form clung in moulded dampness to the frame of a stalwart Indian chief. The bones of the savage were in a state of almost perfect preservation, and the long black hair still clung to the scalp in sinuous plaits. But the strangest and most pe culiar feature of the find is the fact that the coat of the uniform bore epaulets which have been pronounced by army men who have examined them to designate the rank of a brigadier general of the United States army. In the grave were also found steel bridle bits, saddle buckles and the old-fashioned spur, which was once in vogue in the United States cav alry. A small dirk and a big butcher knife were also among the many articles which filled the^grave. Old army men here are highly in* terested in the find- and declare that the savage had at some time killed a brigadier general and took his uni form, which, in true Indian style, was buried with the aborigine when he started on his journey for the happy hunting grounds. The Twin Mountains, where the skeleton was exhumed, stand ten miles east to north of the old Camp Colorado, which once formed the only protection for the pioneers of this section, and where was once sta tioned the afterward famous South ern general, Robert E. Lee, then a young lieutenant. The fort was abandoned more than thirty years ago, and the oldest settlers have no memory of any one having been bur ied on this mountain. The grave was nearly at the top of the moun tain and on the east side, facing the sun. The good state of preservation in which the bones and the uniform were found is accounted for by the fact that the impervious qualities of the clay in which they were buried excluded all moisture from the grave. —Brownwood (Texas) Correspon dence of the New York Herald. The Philosophy of Tipping. Is restaurant tipping a necessary and incurable evil, and dees it per haps result in benefits to the patron that he does not appreciate? Such would seem to be the conclusion to be drawn from an exceedingly enter taining article in the current Har per’s Weekly, written from the stand point of the waiter. “Suppose every waiter,” says this apologist, “got a regular salary with no chance for ex tras. Do you suppose he’d be jump ing hurdles for a lot of fussy people, all kicking about better things than they get at home? Do you think he'd present the glad smile to those he’d like to choke, break his neck making everybody comfortable, and then listen to their hard-luck stories or more painful jokes? No, sir; he’d serve the stuff just as he got it from the kitchen. He wouldn’t go back and fight for tidbits and extra-hot food. He’d be in no hurry to serve any one and pile up work for himself. The customer would wait because the waiter wouldn’t; and probably he’d never come back, and that’s where the owner would lose. The stupid waiter starves. Do you know that in order to hold good waiters the cheap hash-slinging joints have to pay higher wages than the swell restau rants? There’s not the opportunity for tips in the cheap places, and the waiter must follow opportunity like a bird of prey. He simply has to be clever enough to get tips, and he has no social standing to make him bash ful. There are two methods; one is to' get them spontaneously, the other to force them out. Most people tip only because they’re ashamed not to.” George Ade’s Gum Arable. When George Auo wintered in Egypt it amused him a good deal to see the serious way in which his fel low tourists took their smattering of Egyptian archaeology, of the Arabic longue and of the ancient Egyptian iynasties. They had picked up all :his flimsy knowledge in a week or iwo’s reading, but they acted as ihough it was the precious fruit of a lifetime's study. At Assouan, one fine day, a young tvoman from St. Joseph complained that ahe could not understand the Arabic of her guide. To the crowd that encircled her she pointed out the guide—a bent old fellow with a white beard—and she said bitterly that, af ter her thorough study of Arabic, it seemed strange that she and this guide could not converse. From the rear of the crowd Mr. Ade called gravely: “It’s your own fault, Miss Hodson. 5fou should have hired a younger guide. These toothless old ones all ipeak gum Arabic. ” — Home Maga sine.
