A Versatile Garden.
The dwellers In a seaport town oi Massachusetts are justly proud ot their gardens. It remained for a vis itor from a tiny village “why round the Cape” to say the first slightly dis paraging word of these gardens, “isn't this beautiful?” h*. hostess asked, as she paused under a rose arbor and looked back over the stately ranks of larkspur, monk’s-hood, hollyhocks, and many other favorites. “It’s a handsome gardin—of its kind,” said the visitor, dispassionately, “but it ain’t quite up to the mark, when you consider our gardes.” “Indeed:” and the lady i~>ked at him, too amazed to be angry. “What ■ort of gardens have you, please?” “Well,” said her Cape visitor, calm ly, "what we call a good gardin is one where you can start out with two big baskets and a hoe, step through the flower-gardin part, past the vegeta bles, down to the water; dig your clams fust, pick your sweet corn, lay your posies on top o’ that, and hand the whole lot over at the kitchen door. There’s your shore dinner and trim zuin’s all from one gardin.” Kent He Coaid Offer. Disgusted Customer —I bought a cur rant bun here yesterday, and found a fly in it.

It irritated me so that I began to scratch it and it began to Bpread until my leg from my ankle to the knee was one solid scale like a scab. The in itation was always worse at night and would not allow me to sleep, cr \±ij wife either, and it was completely undermining our health. I lost fifty pounds in weight and was almost out of my mind with pain and chagrin as no matter where the irritation came, at work, on the street or in the presence of company, I would have to scratch it until I had the blood running down into my shoe. I simply cannot describe my suffer ing during those seven years. The pain, mortification, loss of sleep, both to myself and wife is simply indescrib able on paper and one has to expe rience it to know what it is. “I tried all kinds of doctors and rem edies but I might as well have thrown my money down a sewer. They would dry up for a little while and fill me with hope only to break out again just as bad if not worse. I had given up hope of ever being cured when I wa3 induced by my wife to give the Cuti cura Remedies a trial. After taking the Cuticura Remedies for a little while I began to see a change, and after taking a dozen bottles of Cuti cura Resolvent, in conjunction with the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Oint ment, the trouble had entirely disap peared and my leg was as fine as the day I was born. Now after a lapse of six months with no signs of a recur rence I feel perfectly safe In extend ing to you my heartfelt thanks for the good the Cuticura Remedies have done for me.

The Week in Congress The postal savings bank bill and the bureau of forestry were under discus sion in the Senate Tuesday. The pub lic expenditures committee was also taken up in debate, some Senators seeing a possible interference with the regular committees because of the com prehensive powers given the public ex penditures committee. “Joy rides,” wine and other personal extravagances of living were charged against the im migration committee in the House by Mr. Macon, of Arkansas, in discussing the expenses contracted by the commis sion on its trip to Europe last sum mer. An investigation of the causes of the high prices of the necessaries of life was provided Wednesday by the pas sage of a resolution for that purpose by the Senate. The Senate also passed a bill conferring the rank of rear ad miral upon Commander Peary and re tiring him with the highest salary paid a rear admiral. This was “calendar day” in the House, and several bills were passed, including one for the creation of an art commission to pass upon various works of art erected by Congress in the District or Columbia. The Senate acted ptomptly Thurs day on the summons of the District Court for the joint committee on print ing to appear in the paper award pro ceedings brought by the Valley Paper Company, by instructing the Senate members of the committee to ignore the summons. The Senate denied the right of the courts to interfere with Its legislative function. Senator Borah in a speech on the income tax asserted that the fears of Governor Hughes that the constitutional amendment would make possible the taxing of state and municipal securities were groundless. The House spent the entire day in de bating whether the House members of the joint printing committee should obey the court summons to appear in the Valley Paper Company’s case. The majority of the judiciary committee favored compliance, but three mem bers, including Chairman Parker, brought in a minority report, taking the view adopted by the Senate. A night session was held and the major ity report finally adopted. The Senate passed the Bennett “white slave” bill Friday, which had previously passed the House. The Sen ate changed the measure so as to di vorce the immigration feature from all others. After a two-hour session the Senate adjourned until Monday. The diplomatic and consular bill appropri ating $3,700,000 was passed by the House. Mr. Harrison and Mr. Fitzger ald of New York charged tbiit the ac tivity of the State Department in the interest of American trade resulted in coercing weaker governments and in certain favored banks getting the bene fit of loans. The House was in ses sion six hours and adjourned till Mon day. No Senators being prepared to dis cuss the postal savings bank bill Mon day, that fneasure was laid aside for other business. The Senate passed the House bill requiring the census enu merators to include in their reports all the cattle slaughtered in the United States, and incorporated an amendment requiring the collection of statistics regarding national and state irigation. After considering the rivers and har bors appropriation bill for about seven hours, the House succeded in dispos ing of 70 of the 100 pages of that measure without making any import ant changes. Speaker Cannon obtain ing the floor, gave his approval to the pending bill, incidentally telling the Democrats if they should ever come into control of the House they would realize the necessity of providing meth ods of procedure that will allow them to transact business, or else by inac tion disappoint the people who had placed them in the majority.

NICKELTOO POnilAR; u. s. won DROP IT Federal Officials, Considering Plan to Abolish Five-Cent Piece, Hear Wail of Protest. IS CALLED NECESSARY COIN. Stands for More Fixed Values Than Any Other Denomination, as Varied Daily Uses Prove. Officials of the Treasury Department sometimes discuss the nation's some what cumbersome coinage and make suggestions to one another that this or that change might bring relief to the working forces of the department. Generally these discussions do not go beyond the inner circle where they originate, no change is made, or even suggested seriously, and the work of the mint goes on as before. Recently, however, the fact leaked out that the 5-cent piece, or “nickel,” had been under discussion and that the government might ask Congress to pass a law eliminating it from the national coinage. Small likelihood exists, or ever did exist, that such a step would be taken, but for a short time considerable anxiety developed in all parts of the country lest the useful and popular “nickel” should disappear from the circulating medium. The fact is the government could afford to dispense with almost any coin rather than the 5-cent piece. It stands for more stable prices than any other. The 5-cent coin for two genera tions at least has been the fixed price of so many things that people would be at complete loss how to proceed without it. True, thou sands of 5-cent pieces are lost each year, but that is due largely to the amazing use to which this little coin is put. The uses of business require the coinage of a greater number of "nickels” than of any other coin. It has been said that it3 universal use as the price of a fare on the street cars is the cause of its retention, but that can hardly be so, as it enters very largely into the price of so many other things that it could not be dispensed with if the price of the car fare were changed. The “nickel” is extensively used in telephone calls. It was formerly more than now the open sesame of the pop ular slot machine, for which it still does extensive duty. It is the price of admission to the fast-multiplying pic ture shows in all parts of the country. The new-fashioned boot-shining parlor charges a “nickel.” The soda fountain, growing in popular favor, deals mopily in “nickels.” Ice cream in summer time goes for 5 cents, and the charge for a myriad of things in the pharmacy and the 5-cent store requires this coin.

There is such a degree of confidence between the members of the Wood Wire and Metal Lathers’ Union, ol Boston, Mass., and the employers that neither asks for a written working agreement.

Clever advertisements attract customers in two ways—first, because they effectually call attention to the goods, and, second, because of their cleverness pure and simple. Such a one is the following, quoted from M. A. P., which adorned a boot shop in the Rue d’Amsterdam, in Paris: Liquidation. With tears in my eyes, I am obliged to clear the whole of my stock of boots. To get rid of it all in a week I offer it to you at a loss of 50 per cent. My husband seeing fit to abandon me with five children. Why Can't I go on without my husband? Because my husband alone was able to obtain job lines from the big pro vincial and foreign bootmakers. Pi*dent ladies will profit by these extraordinary low prices, which will enable me to clear out my stock and search for my husband throughout Eu rope. Madame Marie-Louise X. Work of the Earthworm. When we behold a wide, turf cov ered expanse we should remember that its smoothness, on which 60 much of its beauty depends, is mainly due to all the inequalities having been slowly leveled by worms. It is a marvelous reflection that the whole of the super ficial mold over any such expanse has passed and will pass again every few years through the bodies of worms. The plow is one of the most ancient and most valuable of man’s inven tions, but long before he existed the land was, in fact, regularly plowed by earthworms. It may be doubted whether there are many other animals which have played so important a part in the history of the world as have these lowly organized creatures. Some other animals, however, still more lowly organized—namely, corals —have done far more conspicuous work in having constructed innum erable reefs and islands in the great oceans, but these are almost confined to the tropical zones. Not In Love. The cashier of a French bank en ters the private office of the president nervous and agitated. “Sir,” he says, “I have ‘-omething on my mind which I feel myself com pelled to disclose, though for months I have striven to conceal it.” The president turns pale. “The fact is I love your daughter.” The president breathes more freely. “Ah. you love my daughter. Do you ever make any errors in your books or in counting your cash; find yourself abstracted, eh?” “Never, sir,” with pride. “Then, sir, I must decline to encour age your suit. You are not really in love.”—Paris Journal. CLEAR-HEADED. Head Bookkeeper Mn*t Be Reliable. The chief bookkeeper in a large busi ness house in one of our great West ern cities speaks of the harm coffee did for him: “My wife and I drank our first cup of Postum a little over two years ago. and we have used it ever since, to the entire exclusion of tea and cof fee. It happened in this way: “About three and a half years ago I had an attack of pneumonia, which left a memento in the shape of dys pepsia, or rather, to speak more cor rectly, neuralgia of the stomach. My ‘cup of cheer’ had “'ways been coffee or tea, but I hemr-ie convinced, after a time, that they aggravated my stom ach trouble. I happened to mention the matter to my grocer one day and he suggeited that I give Postum a trial. “Next day it came, but the cook made the mistake of not boiling it sufficiently, and we did not like it much. This was, however, soon reme died. and now we like it so much that we will never change hack. Postum, being a food beverage instead of a drug, has been the means of curing my stomach trouble, I verily believe, for I am a well man to-day and have used no other remedy. “My work as chief bookkeeper in our Co.'s branch house here is of l very confiniug nature.

The Wonderberry or Sunbeiry, the marvelous garden fruit originated by Luther Burbank, and Introduced by John Lewis Childs, the well-known seedsman of Floral Park, N. Y., has proved a great success all over the country. Thousands of people say it is the best thing they ever grew. Mr. John Burroughs, the well-known author, Naturalist and bosom-friend of Theodore Roosevelt, says it is the most delicious pie berry he ever tasted, and a marvelous cropper. A Director of the New York Agri cultural Experiment Station says k fruits abundantly even in pure sand. In the short season of Northwestern Canada It is a godsend, and fruits long after frost has killed most garden truck. D. S. Hill, Wichita, Kan., says thirty people grew It there last season with perfect satisfaction. K. S. Enochs, Hammond, La., says it yields $250 worth of fruit per acre with him. Mrs. J. H. Powers, 4732 Kenwood avenue, Chicago, raised enough berries on a space 4xlo feet to supply herself and friends. J. P. Swallow, Kenton. Ohio, says its equal for all purposes does not exist. Rev. H. B. Sheldon, Pacific Grove, Cal., says he likes the berries served in any and every way. W. T. Davis. Enon, Va., says it is true to description in every way, and fruits in three months from seed. Judge Morrow, of U. S. Circuit Court, says the Wonderberry is sim ply delicious raw or cooked. Mr. Childs exhibited one plant five months old bearing 10,375 berries which measured about eight quarts. Mrs. Hattie Vincent, Hayden, New Mexico, says it stands long, hard droughts of that climate and fruits abundantly all summer. It is certainly the most satisfactory garden fruit and the greatest Novelty ever introduced. tt Inti.lout-'* Mruiury, Gladstone’s power of memory, Sir Edward Hamilton testifies, the Lon don Chronicle says, was always one of his great assets. In his last years he often lamented that it was not what it had been, but even so it came triumphantly out of some remarkable tests. In his 83d year he set himself to recall Manzoni’s ode on the death of Napoleon, which as a young man he had translated into English. He had entirely forgotten his own version, but by dint of hard “digging” or “fishing up,” as he called it, he wrote down 104 of the 108 Italian lines. Two years later he essayed to write from mem ory a complete list of all the men who had been his cabinet colleagues and enumerated 6S of the 70. The veteran’s testing how his mem ory survived, recalls Lord Palmerston a few weeks before his death climbing to the top of some high railings to ascertain how much bodily energy he bad left.
