There's lots of charaeter to this suit of plain and striped pongee. The stripe is sort of an old blue, the same as the deep cuffs, and it tones so well with the natural color pongee. The knife pleated collar of net is a new feature. AN IMPATIENT PATIENT. This Is Paradoxical, but True of the Ger man Emperor. The court doctors find Emperor Wil liam an intractable patient. He is suf fering from a poisoned hand, the result of an insect-bite, and the doctors refuse to permit him to even turn the pages of a book. It has been the Emperor’s custom to overcome minor human .weak nesses by exercising his will power, and he can not see why he should not do so now. One day last week, when the swelling—that had covered the whole arm—went down some, the Emperor in sisted on donning his easy uniform and going down the palace steps to greet the King and Queen of the Belgians. As a result there was a slight relapse. The doctors warned him that he must keep quiet and urged him not to attend the military review*. He took their advice grudgingly. Pope Meets U. S. Sailors, The Pope recently received in private audience Manager Kennedy, rector of the American college in Rome, who pre sented to his holiness a group of Amer ican sailors from the United States crui ser New York, which is anchored in the Bay of Naples.

Philip Saunders of Danville, 111., aged 11 years, died recently from concussion of the brain, the result of a bumping he received at school. Saunders and Bud Forbes of the same age, were marching into the schoolroom when Forties accidentally bumped his head against that of Saunders. The boy be came unconscious at once and did not regain his senses. Young Forbes is also in a serious condition. What “Gold-Filled” Means. Probably most people who buy gold filled watches fancy that they are mys teriously impregnated with gold. Asa matter of fact the term is misleading. Gold filling consists in taking two sheets of gold, between which is placed a sec tion of solder coated base metal. This metallic sandwich is heated and pressed, so that the three parts are welded to gether, with the gold outside. —Scientific American. English Bees Starving.

A DOCTOR'S EXPERIENCE. Medicine Not Needed in This Case. It is hard to convince some people that coffee does them an injury! They lay their bad feelings to almost every cause but the true and unsuspected one. But the doctor knows. His wide ex perience has proven to him that, to some systems, coffee is an insidious poison that undermines the health. Ask the doctor if coffee is the cause of constipation, stomach and nervous troubles. “I have been a coffee drinker all my life. I am now 42 years old and when taken sick two years ago wi:h nervous prostration, the doctor said that my nervous system was broken down and that I would have to give up coffee. “I got so weak and shaky I could not work, and reading your advertise ment of Postum, I asked my grocer if he had any of it. He said, ‘Yes,’ and that he used it in his family and it was all it claimed to be. “So I quit coffee and commenced to use Postum steadily and found In about two weeks’ time I could sleep soundly at night and get up in the morning feeling fresh. In about two months I began to gain flesh. I weigh ed only 146 pounds when I commenced on Postum and now I weigh 167 and feel better than I did at 20 years of age. “I am working every day and sleep well at night. My two children were great coffee drinkers, but they have not drank any since Postum came into the house, and are far more healthy than they were before.’’ Read “The Road to Wellville,” found in pkgs. “There’s a Reason.” Ever read the above letter?

MUCH GOOD IS ACCOMPLISHED. Writer Declares He Saw* Results of Christian Movement During Re cent African Trip. NEED COMBINING OF STRENGTH. EDINBURGH, Scotland, June 16. — A letter from Theodore Roosevelt ex pressing sympathy with the movement and regret at his inability to be present was read at today's session of the World Missionary conference. The communi cation, which was addressed to Silas Mcßee an American delegate, aroused much enthusiasm. The former president wrote: LONDON, May 16. 1910.—My Dear Sir; It Is a matter of real and profound regret to me that I am Imperatively called away to AmerU a. so that I am unable to be present in person at the world missionary confer ence. I regret it the more as if I had been able to be present it would have been as a delegate from the Dutch Reformed church of America, to which I belong. Nothing like your proposed conference has even hitherto taken place. From many na tions, and from many churches, your dele gates gather on this great occasion, to Initi ate a movement which I not only hope, but believe, will be fraught with far reaching good. Combining of Strength. For the first time in four centuries, Chris tians of every name, come together, without renouncing their several convictions or sac rificing their several principles, to confer as to what common action may be taken in order to make their common Christianity not only known to, but a vital force among the two-thirds of the human race to whom, as yet, it Is hardly even a name. Surely every man imbued, as every man should be, with the ethical teachings of Christianity, must rejoice In such an effort to combine the strength of all the churches in the endeavor to christianize humanity, and to christianize it not merely in name but in very fact. Your conference represents the practical effort to apply the teachings of the gospel to what the epistle of Jude calls “the com mon salvation.” An infinite amount of work remains to be done before w*e can re gard ourselves as being even within meas ure b'e distance of the desired goal; an in finite amount at home in the dark places which too often closely surround the bright est centers of light and an infinite amount abroad in those dark places of the earth where blackness is as yet unrelieved by any light. When such is the high purpose to which you have dedicated yourselves, It is emi nently fitting that your invitation should have gone to all Christian churches in all lands. Good Work Accomplished. I am sure there will lie a general, and I hope universal response. In missionary work, above all other kinds of Christian work, it is imperative to remember that a divided Christendom can onlv Imperfectly bear witness to the essential unity of Chris tianity. I believe that without compro mise of belief, without loss of the positive good contained In the recognition of diver sities of gifts and differences of administra tion, the Christian churches may yet find a way to cordial co-operation and friend ship as regards the great underlying essen tials upon which, as a foundation all Chris tian churches are built. This is one of the lessons which has been particularly Im pressed upon me by what I have seen of Christian work in Africa, both In heathen and Mohammedan lands. I believe that unity in a spirit of Christian brotherhood for such broad Christian work will tend, not to do away with differences of doc trines. but to prevent us from laying too much stress on these differences of doc trine. It is written in the scriptures that “He that doeth my will shall know of the doctrine;” but the reverse of this proposi tion cannot be found in holy writ. Empha sis is to be put upon “doing the will;” if only we can make up our minds to work together with earnest sincerity for the com mon good, we shall find that doctrinal dif ferences in no way interfere with our doing this work. Wishing you all success, I am very sin cerely yours, THEODORE ROOSEVELT. KAISER SUFFERING FROM ABRASION. Long Horseback Rides Have Caused Skin to Rub Off on Inside of Right Knee. POTSDAM, June 16.—Emperor Wil liam. who was recently inconvenienced by an abscess on the right wrist, is now troubled with an abrasion on the inside of the right knee. It was produced by horseback riding and caused his majesty to abandon witnessing today’s military maneuvers at Doeberitz. He also has cancelled an engagement for tomorrow at Hanover, and he will not witness, as he had planned, the yacht race at Ham burg Saturday. The Emperor’s household physician stated today that the general condition of his majesty was most satisfactory. The Emperor’s saddle horses have been trained to guidance through pressure from the rider’s knees. Recently his majesty has taken long rides, and the skin having been rubbed off in a spot on the inside of the right knee, a blister re sulted. This afternoon an official bulletin was issued cautioning the public against the impression that the inflammation was in any way connected with the recent ab scess on the wrist, which is now healed. The bulletin adds that his majesty has not experienced any rise of temperature. Following the maneuvers at Doeberitz, the Emperor received the generals who had participated. RECORDS EARTH SHOCK.

J., was buried in St. John’s cemetery, clad a shroud of her own making. The coffin in which her body rested was of her own choosing, and the stone that will mark her grave was selected by her and will be engraved as she ordered. Miss Green, who was 26 years old. found herself in an advanced stage of tuberculosis last December. She decided that she had no chance of re covery and began at once preparations for her funeral. She worked on her shroud for nearly two months. W hen it was done she called in a marble cotter and from li;s designs picked the kind of tombstone she wanted. She directed that it bear only her name, and it is ready to be erected now. Tnen Miss Green sent for Michael Barry of Valley street, chose her casket, and told the un dertaker what kind of a funeral she wanted. Everything was clone as she had asked.

C., June 30. — The conference report on the railroad bill is expected to be taken up by the Senate late today. Senator Elkins said he hoped to be able to get the report be fore the body at 4 o’clock this afternoon. See Legislative Tangle. President Taft, several senators and the Republican members of the House ways and means committee, wrestled today for more than an hour with the legislative tangle that has arisen in con nection with the conservation bill just passed by the Senate, and which threat ens to delay the adjournment of Con gress. The Senate put on the bill as a rider a provision for the issue of $30,- 000.000 of certificates of indebtedness to cover the cost of completing irrigation projects already under way or planned in the west. A bill carrying new legislation involv ing a charge upon the treasury cannot go through the House without refer ence to committee and being placed on the union calendar. Billn on the union calendar are not privileged and under ordinary circumstances the conserva tion bill carrying the $80,000,01)0 appro priation Avould not be reached this ses sion. No Conclusion Reached. It was to devise some means of get ting both the conservation bill and the irrigation appropriation through the House without bringing about a legisla tive snarl that the President summoned members of both houses of Congress to the executive offices today. Later he called in Attorney General Wickersham. No definite conclusion was reached. POSTCARD MAKER IS INDICTED BY JURY.

A low wagon is a decided advantage at times on the farm if the roads are firm. With a low wheeled rig a man can go into a hay field or corn field and load the rack with half the labor Involved with high wheels. Of course a small wheel will sink deeper into the mud and drop into a furrow or small depression that a large wheel will bridge over. The wagon illustrated Is built out of the ordinary farm wagon with full size wheel: First, make an axle nine and a half feet long, with skeins that will fit your wheels. Take two tim bers eighteen feet long, relatively as strong as 6xß pine (round timbers will answer if you have them on your farm), hang these under the axle near the skeins with five-eighths round iron clips with burrs underneath. Four or six Inch blocks may be put between the axle and timbers, which will make them still lower. Chamfer the front ends and bolt together, forming a tri angle. Hang the front end under the front axle by means of a strong, short reach bolted firmly to the timbers Just behind the circular part of front hounds. The king-bolt goes through the reach and serves to draw the rear part, but the weight is supported by a coupling in front of the axle. This consists of a heavy eye bolt and large triangular link, which Is looped over the projecting end of the reach in front of axle. Cov er the timber with a tight floor eight feet wide, as far as possible, without interfering with the turning of the front wheels against the timbers. Deck over, the front wheels, resting the deck ing on a false bolster. AU the deck ing Is of sound inch boards, with a strip nailed under tha ends of boards to protect them. For hay, use stakes in rear, with 2x6 bolted cross-wise, and 2x4 fastened from top of same to the deck to shield the wheels. This part may be removed when hauling commodities other than hay. Three short posts may be set in ground with inclined bars and the wag on driven or backed upon same to raise it from the ground, when the wagon can be changed quickly and much more A LOW WAGON. easily than the ordinary rack cau be lifted on or off. This wagon may be used for hauling silage, corn, and, In the absence of a spreader, for hauling manure, having no sideboards to both er with. Farm Products Exports. Exports of farm products from the United States have Increased from an average of $150,000,000 a year in the five-year period from 1851 to 1855 to more than $1,000,000,000 in 1908, ac cording to the Department of Agricul ture. The increase in exports has been greater than the increase in pop ulation. In 1851-55 the average value per capita of agricultural exports was $5.85; in 1901-05 It was SIO.BB. Ex ports of packing house products have increased from $10,000,000 in the 1851-55 period to $196,000,000 in 1908, the principal items in this group be ing pork, beef and oleo oil. Since 1905 there has been a decline in the exports of beef, but the balance of trade favors foreign countries by near ly $200,000,000 in the year ending June 30, 1909, according to the ad vance sheets of the report of the New York Chamber of Commerce. The re port will show that imports into the United States increased $18,085,245 over 1908, while exports for 1909 fell off $175,358,326. Combination Hoc Honae. I have two pastures that have no shade trees in them. It is very con venient, ho-wever, for me to run tho hogs on them during the summer. For a while I used make-shift shapes in the fence corners, but one winter I was building four movable breeding houses and I hit upon a plan by which I could use them In the summer as shade. All four sides were made on hinges, HOG HOUSE IN SUMMER. as shown in the drawing, and in the summer these sides are fastened up. Quite a large number of hogs can find shelter in one of these houses in the summer, and in winter they are just as warm as can be w len used for the pigs.—John Y. Beaty, in Farm and Horae. Figpariiix Coat of Crop. Dr. H. C. Price of the Ohio Agricul tural College has charged his farm land with 35 cents per hour for man and team and the market price for the products grown, and gets the fol lowing results: One sixty acres of corn yield was 79.8 bushels per acre, which cost 120.39 to produce, and was valued at $49.47. This showed a clear profit of $29.08 per acre. On clover hay he raised 8.1 tons per acre on ni’- teen acres. This cost $6.33 and pro duced $25.26, or a profit of $18.93 per acre. His twelve acres of wheat aver aged 15.29 bushels at a cos’ of $12.90 per acre, and with a yield of $16.52 per acre showed a profit of $2.63. On oats he had a yield of 20.7 on eight acres. The cost was $12.13, the pro ceeds $12.56 and the profits 43 cents per acre. With 6.4 acres of potatoes his yield averaged 83.3 bushels, which cost $57.67 and yielded $84.89, with profit of $27.22 per acre. In his locality this would seem io indicate that all crops pay, but that corn is the most profit able, with potatoes second and oats with almost no profit. Outdoor Fireplace for a Kettle. When a kettle is used in the open air for heating water, or boiling maple sirup, there is considerable of the heat wasted, unless a furnace of some kind is built about the fire. The accompanying sketch illustrates a fur nace made of an ordinary drain or sewer tile. The diameter of the tile must be of such a size as to let the largest part of the rounding bottom set inside. Dig out a hole in the earth under the tile, says Popular Mechan ics, or break a piece out of the tile to make an opening to feed the fire and for the draft. Dairying In Holland. Dairying in Holland Is the princi pal occupation. The land la • worth from SSOO to SI,OOO an acre, yet tho people pay their rents or Interest on the Investment, by producing butter and cheese, which they place on the European markets in successful com petition with that produced In Ameri ca on land less than one-flfth the value. The secret is—efficient cows, excellent care, co-operation and supe riority of butter and cheese. A cow stable in America la usually an un tidy, uninviting and In many cases absolutely filthy place, whers, to the disgrace of civilization, human food is produced. In Holland a cow stable is as clean and carefully cared for as any other room In the house. Presenting Mice Damage to Trees. Mice are attracted to an orchard in winter by a covering of dead vegeta tion on the ground. If the vegetation can be plowed under In the fall It will destroy their nesting and hiding places. Some farmers burn the dead grass and weeds In their orchards in the fall, but this is not good practice, as there Is danger of killing the trees by fire and the dead vegetation is needed for a mulch and to apply hu mus. Wrapping the base of the trees with tarred paper, to the height of one to two feet will prevent mice and rab bits from gnawing them in winter. Fine wire netting wrapped around the base of the young trees will answer the same purpose. Home-Made Cheese Press. A Suiiititnte for Cotton. Ingenious Germans have experiment ed successfully with the fiber of the kapok or silk cotton tree of tropical Africa and Asia, and believe they have a useful substitute for cotton. If that Is the case they will have furnished additional proof that no substance, however valuable, is actually indis pensable to man. Cotton long seemed to be almost so, and there are few things without which we should get on so badly, if there were nothing else to which to lurn. Notes of the Farm Dairy. The best flavored butter In the world Is made in private dairies —and the worst, too. The silo enables the farmer to carry more head of stock than he otherwise could be able to do. To produce their full milk-giving capacity, cows should be kept as free from disturbance as possible. Care and feeding the first two years with the calves and heifers is where many men succeed in raising stock. No one man can develop a cow into a high producer unless that cow had an inherited quality of development to start with. Some don’t seem to realise the im portance of manipulating the udder with the hand at the same time they are milking. Success in dairying demands that a man breed and develop hia own cows as far as possible, and buy, if he must, wisely. Graveyard Relics. An old burial ground was discovered In an excavation being made at Nine teenth and Mifflin streets, Philadelphia. Old residents say that the site was once known as the “Lebanon wing” of the old Philadelphia cemetery. One of the bodies exhumed was that o£ a man whc had evidently been buried alive. The thumb of the left hand was fastened be tween the teeth, with the bone partly bitten through, and in the right hand was clutched a mass of hair that the man had torn from his scalp. The limbs of a number of the bodies were petrified. The casket of a little girl was practically as sound as when interred. On it was a silver plate bearing the inscription, “Clara Fletcher, 0 years old. Died, 1865.” Red, Weak, Weary, Watery Eyea Relieved By Murine Eye Remedy. Try Murine For Your Eye Troubles.
