TO FEED CROWDS BARBECUED BEEF TOURNAMENT ARRANGEMENTS ARE WELL IN HAND Expect to Have Charge of Work of Satisfying Appetites of Hungry Thousands — Grand Mar. shal Appointed Pasadena Agency. 24 East Colorado Street. Bunset Main 2740. Home 2668. PASADENA, Dec. 7.— The multitude expected to attend the afternoon sports at Tournament park on New Year s day will be fed on the barbecue plan. Tournament directors arrived at this conclusion after a conference with Benor Romero, an expert In that line, who has been awarded tho contract to barbecue and serve the beef. It is proposed to erect long tables on either side of the barbecue pit and from these the hungry hordes will pass with wooden plate and tin cups for coffee, which will be served from the tables. Senor Romero agrees to bring four assistants who are to look after roast ing the beef, while six of the best meat cutters in the city will be furnished by the local butchers, xhey »¦« to cv. -S the meat and bread and serve the fatrons. Besides the beef the bill of fare will Include frijoles, bread and butter, chili and coffee, for which only a nominal price is to be charged. The tournament directors believe this plan will protect the public from any possible extortion, as one price is to be charged to all and the same amount is to be served each patron. Senor Romero last summer furnished a big barbecue for a lodge gathering at Redondo. He will prepare the beeves at Tournament park the night before so as to have everything In readiness the next day. . The timely rains mean much to the tournament directors, who see In the rainfall an abundance of flowers.

PASADENA, Dec. 7.— Under the direc tion of the forest rangers a new trail la being constructed from Deer Park, at the head of Monrovia canyon, to Camp Rln con, in the San Gabriel canyon, which, when completed, will be one of the best routes to be taken leading to the head waters of the San Gabriel, the favorite ground of hunters.

AT SEVENTY CARNEGIE RAISES OSLER LIMIT "MAN MOST YOUTHFUL WITH YEARS AND EXPERIENCE" Ironmaster's Recipe for Happiness Is to Make Others So and Obey the "Inner Judge" NKW YORK, Dec. 7.— Out of the full ness of seventy years, which he says have been crowned with more of sun shine perhaps than are given to most men in the allotted span of life, Andrew Carnegie clings to one recollection which he holds dearest of them all. He stood In front of the fireplace in his study yesterday afternoon when he told of this recollection. Sheaves of pa per bearing felicitation on hl3 70th birth day covered his desk. "At 70 one prizes these tokens of friend ship," he said, reading off names of men prominent in the world's affairs and dwelling fondly on the message winch each had sent. He took up a newly delivered cablegram, glanced at it and his manner changed instantly. It told of the death of a relative in Scotland. The bouyant note which had marked hiß every word gave way to one of profound sadness. Th<; paper in his hand trembled as he said: "What a commentary on life— this mes sage of death. I must not show it to the family until tomorrow. There must be no sadness in this day. Joy and sor row alternate so swiftly." One Day Better Than a Decade "What was the happiest decade of your life?" Mr. Carnegie was asked. "Decade? It was a day," replied Mr. Carnegie, obviously implying that no given ten years in his life has held the happiness wli.ch a certain few hours had meant for him. The laughter of a childish voice sound- Fifth avenue and Nlnety-flrst street. Its effect on Mr. Carnegie was as if a fairy had exercised her magic in dispelling the gloom brought by the cablegram. Coin cldentally the lights were turned on in the mansion. Azaleas, chrysanthemums and other blooms sent by friends were revealed in the study. He listened until the laughter of his daughter, aged 11, was repeated. His eyes were alight with a great Joy. "My happiest day?" He paused, and it might have been a mat> of £7 Instead of 70 who continued: "My happiest day was when I persuaded a certain young lady to become my guard lan angel." Again the child's laughter was heard. "Her mother," said Mr. Carnegie, ten derly. His Recipe for Happiness "What is your recipe for happiness," Mr. Carnegie?" He returned to the fireplace and rubbed his hands together, as if mixing a recipe which all the world might use with uni versal satisfaction. "To obey the Judge within, and make others happy. "If the Judge within gives you a clean verdict, we have no other judge to fear here or hereafter. "But after satisfying that judge, above all else the way to be happy is to make others happy." "Can a man accomplish as much at 70 as at 40?" "More, bless you, more," replied Mr. Carnegie. "All things being equal, a man's efficiency is increased at 70. He is equipped with greater experience. The world ia growing better, and it follows that the men In It grow better as they grow older. "I have here on my wall two rules which young men should bear in mind."

Mr. Carnegie was asked: "When is man's usefulness ripest?" "When he has attained to the highest degree of perfection of which he la capa ble," was the reply. "This means that If he conserves his physical and mental pow ers he will be ripest when he has attained long life. At 70 I am convinced that man's usefulness Increases with age. Kind'.lness between man and man is showing a broad ¦nlng tendency. "It undoubtedly is not given to man to explain why sickness and poverty and sin are necessary in his order of things. It has not been explained to us why the lajv of evolution obtains, providing that the higher forms of life live upon the lower. And since it is not given to use to understand, it is better that we bow our heads In recognition of tho mandate, "Thy will i-i done.' "There will come a time when wars will be no more. The peace conference at The Hague is speeding this end. Men are realizing the duty which they owe to their fellowman, and with this realization comes the knowledge that it is not right to kill." Opposes Bull Fights Mr. Carnegie says he found that the Best way to spend a Joyous birthday Is by following his own motto, "Make others happy." Its application took the form of devoting a good part of the day to hig little daughter. The afternoon was spent Lt home. In the afternoon father "und daughter attended the Elmendorf lecture In Carnegie hall. The subject was "OM Mexico." "I suggested to Mr. Elmendorf that he leave out the bull flght," Mr. Carnegi? haid, intimating that his suggestion was kindly received. Returning to his resi dence he found several callers, who had waited until nearly 5 o'clock to extend their congratulations. He was the mer riest of all In the drawing room, and fol lowed his guests to the door on their de parture, calling out to one a cheery fare well which would have rejoiced the ears of President Roosevelt. . Mr. Carnegie at 70 is "the picture of health." His face has a ruddy color, and his step has a springiness which tells of unwonted vitality. • He has his game of golf two or three times a week and other wise spends as much time out of doors as possible. Enfant Terrible Again There was company to dinner at Nel lie's house in South Broad street and the a.ners were enjoying the first course, which consisted of oyster soup. Nellie made away with hers for some time in silence, until she had nearly cleaned the plate, when she suddenly paused, and, looking at her mother across the table, said in a stage whisper: "Mamma, what you fink? Dere's a hair in the soup!" "Hush, Nellie," said mamma, frowning. "It's nothing but a crack in the plate." Nellie moved the bowl of her spoon back and forth over the supposed crack, and then exclaimed triumphantly: •Kin a crack move?"— St. Louis Re public.

Appendicitis How to Avoid It and Eacape a Surgi- cal Operation, Told By One Who Knoyra A Simple Method That la Alnar* Kfflrarioii* It has only been a few years since \t was discovered that a surgical operation would cure appendicitis; in fact, It has been but a short time since the disease was discovered and named. Whenever there is an inflamed condi- tion of the appendix, caused by Impacted faeces in the small cavity opening; into the intestine, you then have appendicitis. The older doctors used to call this in- flammation of the bowels and were puz- zled to know the cause. Even now, with all the knowledge we have of the disease, no medical man can teiL you why we should have an appen- dix, why we find it where it is or wnat are its functions, If it has any. The disease for which the operation U a cure is usually caused by indigestion, and in many cases follows a large and indigestible meal. Physicians have until recently recom- mended an operation, but now, as it ia known that it is caused by indigestion or dyspepsia a cure without an operation is assured. Where the patient is treated with Stu- art's Dyspepsia Tablets the unhealthy conditions prevailing rapidly disappear, the stomach and intestines are placed back in their normal condition, every organ of the body operates as it and the inflammation is reduced and the operation is avoided. Conscientious physicians who are look- ing after the best Interests of their pa- tients will always keep a supply of Stu- art's Dyspepsia Tablets handy in their office, where in cases of sudden attacks of Indigestion they can relieve the patient at once. There is no record of a case of appen- dicitis where the stomach and bowel* were in a healthy condition and properly digested the. food from meal to meal. No better advice can be given to any one who has attacks of Indigestion or who has been threatened with appen- dicitis than to tell him to go to the urug store, pay 60 cents and take home a package of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. Whenever heartburn, gas in stomach or bowels, heart disease or stomach trou- bles, sour eructlons, acidity or fermen- tation are present, act at once. Take a dose of the Tablets and get relief as soon as possible. At all druggists— so cents. Send us your name and address today and we will at once send you by mail a sample package free. Address F.
