CURE raw™ Munyon’s Stomach Treatment Performing Miracles. MUNYON TELLS YOU HOW TO GET WELL FREE OF CHARGE "A few days ago I received a letter from a young man, who states he Is 28 years of age, and has occupied several Important positions, but owing to indi gestion and inability to sleep hs has been unable to concentrate his mind upon his work and has consequently been dis charged on the ground of neglect of duty. He goes on to say that he is a young man of steady habits, but for years he has suffered from dyspepsia, which has so affected his nerves that he is unable to sleep, and that It Is not neglect upon his part, nor lack of Interest in the busi ness, but simply physical weakness. He asks my advice In this matter. “For the benefit of a large number of those similarly situated I propose to answer this letter "publicly, hoping that it may be the means of helping many , who may be affected In this way. "In the first place, the stomach must be made well before the nerves can be made strong. The nerves must be made strong before one can sleep well. No ' one is capable of doing his best who is in .any way troubled with Insomnia or any lform of nervousness. The greatest gen itals have been men of iron nerve and Indomitable will. They have had perfeu. digestion, being able to eat well. and di gest all they ate. "It is said that Napoleon lost the ba.- lle of ‘'Waterloo because of a fit of indi gestion. Grant’s enormous reserve power was due to a well stomach. Abraham Lincoln said that ‘he did not know' that he had a stomach.’ Grover Cleveland, it Ir, said, cou’d work 18 hours a day, eat K hearts' meal at 2 or 3 o’clock in the morning, go to bed and sleep soundly un til 9 o’clock and get up refreshed, ready for anew day’s work. "Pres. Taft is another type of healthy manhood. Who thinks for one moment that he would be the President of the United States today pad he been a dy speptic or affected with some nervous ailment? I claim that two-thirds of all the failures in professional and business life are due to weak and deranged stom achs. “No business house would care to em ploy a dyspeptic representative to sell goods for them on the road. One-half the men who stand behind counters to day, earning from sl2 to sls a week, will never get beyond these figures, for the reason that they are physically w r eak. They lack the nerve power and com manding strength that come from a good, Bound stomach. "No one cares to hear a dyspeptic preacher. No matter how pious he may be, he is bound to reflect his bilious and Jaundiced condition. He will unconscious ly inoculate his hearers with his melan choly feelings. "No one would think of entrusting an important legal case in the hands of a dyspeptic lawyer, any more than he would care to entrust his own life, or that of a dear one, in the hands of a phy sician who is nervous. Irritable or a dy speptic. Men must have good digestion, strong nerves and vital manhood in or der to render a clean, clear-cut decision either in medicine, law or business. “I believe that more than half of the divorces can be traced to 111 health. I want every dyspeptic to try my stomach treatment, for It corrects nearly all forms of indigestion and nervousness. It makes old stomachs almost as good as new. Its marvelous power for digesting food and getting the best out of it makes for good rich, red blood. This, In turn, strength ens the nerves, builds up the general sys tem, and will surely prolong life and make It a pleasure to live and do the things allotted to us.” Professor Munyon makes no charge for consultation or medical advice: not a pen nv to pay.

He said the other day to a New York reporter: “I hope in my sanitarium to restore lots of grumpy middle-aged people to perfect health, and if I give them back perfect health I’ll give them back youth and gayety and Romance. If mid dle age is stupid, if middle age is pro saic, it is only because the health of middle age is poor. "The woman,” he continued, “who sends her grumpy mate to my estab lishment will no longer have to m ike the bitter complaint of Mrs. Blank. “‘My husband, 15 years ago,’ said Mrs. Blank, ’used to kiss me every time we passed through a tunnel. But now— ’ "She gave a bitter laugh. “ ‘Now,’ she said, ’he takes a long pull at his traveling flask.’ ” A Preference.

If you have a nice home, whether in the city or in the country, you can add greatly to its attractiveness by building not only the sidewalks, but the steps, curbs, fence-posts, cisterns, foundations, drive ways, cellars and so on, of concrete. Build of concrete and use UNIVERSAL Portland Ce ment. Concrete is cheap, easy to use, clean, fire, rat and rot proof. Cencrtte is the simplest building mater ial and the most durable.

Too Frequently Insufficient Attention Is Paid to Th.s by the Nurse — Serve Food in the Dainti est Style. Few things are rjore difficult than to get a sick person to take nourishing food, and no task, as a rule, is worse managed. Amateur nurses may be suc cessful in othei matters, but they gen erally make a failure of the food prop osition. The nurse is usually to blame when the patient will not take enough food. She will bring a huge plateful of jelly or a big basinful of beef tea to him, and he win reject it with disgust, because the sight of so much food is distasteful. If she brought a few spoonfuls at a time and served them daintily he would be glad to eat Give little food at a time, and give it otten. That which is eaten willingly and with relish is far better than double the amount swallowed with disgust. If a time is fixed for the patient’s meals, always be punctual. If kept waiting, most sick people lose their de sire to eat and will reject the food when it is brought to them. Be careful never to have food In the sick room in the hope that the patient may eat it presently. This will pre vent him from taking any food at all. Never take a large quantity of any thing at one time, thinking that be cause the patient had liked it before he will like it again. In nine cases out of ten a sick person’s appetite is capricious. His food, therefore, should be varied as much as possible. Don’t rely too much on beef tea. It fs a useful stimulant, but it is not really nourishing, as most people sup pose it to be. Be particularly careful to serve everything in the daintiest style. Glass should be bright, silver burnished, napkins lily white and saucers free from slops. These little details will make all the difference in the patient’s appetite. Always make sure that the patient is placed in a comfortable position to eat and drink and be careful that no crumbs are left in the bed. The practice of putting dishes in the oven to warm them for the table is a bad one. The dry heat causes the enamel to crack in time and then the grease soon penetrates them, to their utter ruination. Put the dishes to be heated in a dishpan and pour boiling water over them. Let them stand and steam until ready to serve the meal, then wipe with a clean, dry towel. Rabbit Salmi. Place two rabbits in a baking pan, add one slice of onion, one stalk of celery chopped fine and one bay leaf; brush the game with melted butter, then ccok for thirty minutes. Lift the meat from the pan; add to the pan two tablespoons of butter and the same of flour and brown until dark; add one cup sherry and one cup hot water, stir well, and when smooth add one tea spoon salt, one tablespoon Worcester shire sauce, one tablespoon of capers and twelve olives. Lay the rabbits again in the pan, cover closely and sim mer for thirty minutes. Dish the game, arrange the olives for a garnish, strain the sauce over the meat, sprinkle on finely chopped parsley and serve. (Rabbits should be cut r.s for fricas see.) Peppers and Tomatoes. Bone the legs of the chicken and cut into meat blocks. Prepare butter sauce and mix with fowl. Take two green peppers, cut In strips one large, ripe tomato and two boiled potatoes. Cut them the same as the chicken. Mix all together in the sauce and sim mer 30 minutes. Pour the mixture in a baking dish, cover with fine bread crumbs. Butter the top and bake a nice brown. Serve with baked new potatoes. Fruit Soup for Hot Weather, A delicious ice cold soup is made as follows: Take of any small fruit — blackberries, strawberries, currants or raspberries—two cupfuls; mash the fruit and add one cup of sugar, enough ice water and broken ice to fill a soup tureen. At tbe last dot spoonfuls of meringue on top and serve waferettes or dainty oyster crackers with iL Make the meringue of the whites of two eggs, beaten stiff, and oue-half cup of powdered sugar. Fish in Milk One whitefish, milk, salt, pepper, half teaspoonful of butter, and half a teaspoonful of Hour. Butter a pie dish, lay the fish in it, and cover with milk, sprinkle with pspper and salt, and bake till the flesh will leave the bones when gently touched. Take up the fish, lay it on a dish, put the milk into a saucepan, thicken It with butter and flour worked together, and pour around. Garnish with parsley and slices of lemon. Cover for Ironinp Board. Instead of using a sheet on the iron ing board, make a fitted slip of un bleached muslin or of the material used for flour sacks. Leave the slip open at each end and have It large enough to be easily drawn on or off.— Housekeeper. Old-Fashioned Milk Toast. To one pint of scalded milk add two tablespoons of flour mixed smooth with cold water; stir until thick and add salt and two tablespoons of but ter cut in small Cover toast with sauce and keep warm until soft Creamy Fritter Sauce. Beat one egg with one cup of granu lated sugar, add any desired flavoring except fruit juice, and lust before serving pour over one cup of b .’ing milk, beating hard while pouring; not return to the stove or try to keep it hoL Kerosene Hint. A few drops of kerosene in the starch keeps it from sticking. A lit tle in the water when boiling clothes helps to remove the soil. Sauces for Fish and Meats. Appropriate sauces for serving with roast beef, tomato catsup, grated horseradish, roast mutton, stew and gooseberries; roast lamb, mint s .e; roast pork, apple sauce; roast &ey. cranberry or celery, plum or grape; roast chicken, current jelly; boiled turkey, oyster sauce; broiled steak, mushrooms, fried onions; pigeon pie, mushroom sauce; roast goose, apple sauce; fried salmon, egg sauce; broiled mackerel, stewed gooseber ries; boiled or baked fisn, white cream sauce; boiled mutton, caper sauce. OinOTteOROTAKr Daring Act of Steeplejack | f | h Ii U irH ' mi The attention of thousands of persons in City Hall Park, New York, re cently was attracted by a steeple jack and a small boy, who were suspended from the top of the highest flagpole on the city hall tower. The boy is Ed ward Hughes, seven years old, son of Samuel H. Hughes, one of the best known steeplejacks in the country. With the help of his father the youngster climbed the staff, the top of which is 175 feet above the ground, where the two entertained the crowd with their acrobatic work for almost an hour. One of the feats that caused the crowd to gasp was performed when Hughes, suspended head down, grasped the boy by his hands and swung him free from the pole. TREE IN HIS WINDOW BOX Most persons love trees, but few carry their love of them to their places of business, as has J. J. Auster nell, a dentist of Kansas City. In a window box on a ledge c? his office in the second story grows a hardy cottonwood tree, eight feet high. Mr. Austernell planted the sapling two years ago and his watering and care have given him a flower box that is unique. Not only do the leaves cast a cool shade over the window, but their fresh greenness has a quieting effect on patients, the dentist be lieves. FINDS PURSE AND WINS BET Recovery of S4OO, lost the other day. netted W. P. March, a Chicago con tractor. a like amount in bets at At lantic City. When he lost his wallet other members of the Chicago Build ing Exchange made up a purse of S4OO as a bet that he would never see his money again. They figured they had a 500.000 to 1 chance on the hon esty of that number of visitors at Atlantic City. March took the long chance and doubled his money. The wallet was picked up by Robert H. Clutch, of Philadelphia, and returned. SANITY RESTORED BY SHOCK On the testimony of expert alien ists that Frank Teeling, a patient in the insane hospital at Overbrook, had been cured of insanity by the shock of a collision between an automobile and a prison van in which he was be ing transferred, the court of special sessions at Newark, N. J.. ordered Teeling’s release from custody. Teel- MYSTERY OF B’JTTERKLIES On their annual pilgrimage, which has net failed in the last ten years, thousands of monarch butterflies, all of the same species, swarmed on the limbs of trees in the yard behind the home of Mrs. W. D. George, 841 Day ton avenue, Sc. Paul, Minn., one day recently, hanging in clusters so thick in places that the trees seemed spot ted with brown. About 3 o’clock they began to come, hundreds in a flock, flying as straight as if guided by an unseen hand. Past hosts of other trees they flew and sought resting places on the limbs of the tree that has been the shelter of thousands of their ancestors in years past. And at sunrise the next morning they were off for the south. More singular was the quest of the butterflies of former years that sought out this resting place overnight on their Journey south. Nine years in succession—so long has she kept ac count —they came to one long limb of a box elder in the yard, concealing it with their clusters. Other limbs on *feat tree were ignored as the butter ing developed symptoms of violent insanity while in jail on a drunken ness sentence and was ordered re moved to the asylum. While he was being transported the prison wagon was run into by an automobile. After the collision ’feeling appeared per fectly sane. Alienists declared that the physical and psychic shock clear ed his brain. They believe further that Teeling will be strong-minded enough to resist the temptation to overindulge in alcoholic drinks.

SWORDFISH RAMS A DORY An exciting affair occurred near Boston recently when a monster sword fish rammed its sword into a dory sent out from Capt. Richard Noonan’s Dor cas, breaking the dory to splinters and hurling into the sea two fisher men who were rescued with great dif ficulty by three of their mates off Block island. Just as they were sink ing in water probably a quarter mile deep. Captain Noonan and another man plunged into the sea and rescued Coracle-Men of Carmarthen i An int- resting episode in the festivities connected with the eisteddfodd at then, Wales, was the appearance of the coracle men on the river Towy, us'ng a survival of the oldest form of water craft known. Coracles were in use in the time of the ancient Britons 2,000 years ago. The boats are made of sticks cut from the ash and beech trees, and have an average weight of 25 pounds. The framework is covered with a sheet cf strong canvas sat urated with tar and pitch. flies this year ignored other trees in adjoining lots. This was their resting place for the night—no other would do. Unerringly they found it, hang ing low to the ground, and they did not leave it until sunrise. Lust year this limb was cut off. so when the butterflies returned this year the old place of vantage was gone. So they clustered on the outer branches of this and other trees in the yard. But in the one yard they stayed, loyal, though the old home was gone. 'Vtfcat guides them to oie spot in St. Paul is a mystery, which is more in volved because it is srid butterflies live only one year, hente none from last year could have guided them this season to the trees.

Switzerland. He has enrolled bimselt them. All four werb liable at any time to be rammed and killed by the mad sea iponster. With the seamen safely aboard the fishing vessel the fight with the swordfish was renewed. The fish was weakened by the first Uly iron thrust deep Into its side, and one of the fishermen put out in another dory and again speared the fish. This time it succumbed and yielded to the rope which hauled it in. INTERVIEW IN THE SEINE People have been interviewed in the strangest ways and in the strangest places. The climax, perhaps, has been reached by the reporter of a Persian paper. He plunged into the Seine aft er his victim and interviewed her while swimming. The reporter’s prey was Juliette Cure, a plucky little girl of twelve, who swam against the champions of the world and finished fourth. When it was known that, with an allowance of some 1,500 yards, the the little girl had plunged Into the Seine at the same time as the other champions started at Ivry, all eyes were turned toward Juliette Cure. A reporter could not help plunging in after her as she reached the Point Royal. He swam up to her side. There was no time to present a card. Just one word, anything that she said then and there would do for an in terview. She was too busy striking out with her hands and feet. The re porter insisted. “Surely you must feeL tired,” he said. “No,” was the curt reply. “I’m going to finish.” That was all he could obtain for his trouble, but it was enough. He had scored a point over his colleagues. SOUTH SEA WAVES We all remember with what fre quency in the old narratives of experi ences in the South Seas reference is made to the heavy swells of the ocean, which impressed the navigators with the idea of their remoteness from land. The great size of the set waves in high southern latitudes has been explained by the fact that south of the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Horn there is neither windward nor leeward shore, and the prevailing w r ind in all longitudes is westerly. Thus when a west w’ind springs up' it finds a long westerly swell, the effect of a previ ous wind, still running. The newborn wind increases the steepness of this swell and so forms majestic storm waves which sometimes attain a length of 1,200 feet from crest to crest. The average height attained by sea waves in feet is about half the velocity of the wind in miles an hour, 1,000-YEAR-OLD JOURNAL :L- _>.i l 1 g slSSlf; - * * * ; v mm u + *6 **.** f I •’ jSigmn: •9$ ! a ; If :*£s£•! ” ;a a s. : I; mm A i * ii JSiff I J f !i= if Miss i The "Tching-Pao," the official ga zette of Peking, is the oldest newspa per in the world; it is now celebrat ing Its thousandth year.

I kept scratching till the blood came. It kept getting worse, I couldn’t sleep nights any more. It kept itching for about a month, then I went to a doctor and got some liquid to take. It seemed as if I was going to get better. The itching stopped for about three days, but when it started again, was even worse than before. The eczema itched so badly I couldn’t stand it any more. ‘‘l went to a doctor and he gave me some medicine, but didn’t do any good. We have been having Cuticura Rem edies in the house, so I decided to try them. I had been using Cuticura Soap, so I got me a box of Cuticura Ointment, and washed off the affected part with Cuticura Soap three times a day, and then put the Cuticura Oint ment on. The first day I put it on, it relieved me of itching so I could sleep all that night. It took about a week, then I could see the scab come off. I kept the treatment up for three weeks, and my eczema was cured. “My brother got his face burned with gun-powder, and he used Cuticura Soap and Ointment.
