No Fear of Any Further Trouble. David Price, Corydon, la., says: "I was in the last stage of kidney trouble —lame, weak, run down to a mere skeleton. My back was so bad I could hardly walk and the kidney secre tions much disor dered. A week after 1 began using Doan's Kidney Pills I could walk with out a cane, and as I continued my health gradually returned.

TORTURED BIX MONTHS By Terrible Itching Eczema—Baby's Suffering Was Terrible — Soon Entirely Cured by Cutlcura. "Eczema appeared on my son's face. We went to a doctor who treated him for three months. Then he was so bad that his face and head were nothing ibut one sore and his ears looked as if they wero going to fall off, so we tried another doctor for four months, the baby never getting any better. Hi* hand and legs had big sores on them and the poor little fellow suffered so terribly that he could not sleep. After he had suffered six months we tried a set of the Cutlcura Remedies and the first treatment let him sleep and rest well; In one week the sores were gone and in two months he had a clear face. Now he is two years and has never had eczema again. Mrs. Louis (Beck, R. F. D. 3, San Antonio, Tex., Apr. 15, 1907." Sizing Them Up.

'Octagon House," at One Time Occu pied by President and Dolly Mad ison, Is Structure Bearing Unenviable Reputation. When Dolly Madison and her hus band returned to Washington, in the year 1814, after the unwelcome visit of the British troops, they found the White House damaged to such an extent by fire that many months were required for the making of nec essary repairs. During this inter val they occupied a mansion, at that time the most imposing private dwell ing in the city, which was called the Octagon house. It was situated, and stands to-day, on the northeast corner of Eighteenth street and New York avenue, says a writer in The Illustrat 'id Sunday Magazine. The house gets its name from the fact that it is octagonal in shape, and another of its architectural peculiar ities is a large circular hall or recep tion room, into which a person enter ing is ushered immediately on passing through the front door. Directly above this hall and corresponding to it, on the second floor, is a spacious circular chamber, originally meant for a bed room, which was made to serve foi meetings of the cabinet during the oc cupancy of the establishment by the Madisons. The Octagon house, which had been built by Col. Ogle Tayloe, a man ol ample fortune, was at this time a very comfortable place to live in. It had not yet acquired its subsequent unfor tunate reputation as an abode for ter rifying phantoms. Just how, and ow ing to what circumstances, the dwell ing first became haunted is a ques tion that, seems to be wrapped up in a good deal of mystery. The fact is, however, that during a long period of years, .and until quite recently, it re mained unoccupied, save for brief in tervals, though offered for rent at the merely nominal price of $25 a month •—simply on account of the supernatur al manifestations which many credible persons declared they had witnessed within its walls. According to the generally accept ed story, the house was occupied at some period during the first half of the century by a cruel slave-owner, who in a fit of anger whipped a negro to death in the garret. Another version is that he starved or tortured his hu man chattel in the cellar of the man sion. But. at all events, there was a tragedy, still another tale being to the effect that the wicked man's daughter refused to marry in obedi ence to her father's wishes, and after a quarrel, which took place on the stairs, she either fell or was thrown down the steps and killed. Whatever the truth of the matter, may be, it is certain that the alleged spectral manifestations have been most particularly connected with the stairs, on which murmurs as of whis pering in angry tones are heard at dead of night, followed by a sound of something falling. During its many years of non-occupancy small parties of venturesome persons did attempt occasionally to spend a night in the house, and in every instance, it is said, met with some terrifying experi ence. Meanwhile, though the place was certainly empty, many people passing along in the street In the day time saw, or thought they saw, faces at the windows; and at night strange lights would move from room to room To Live Well. If a man would live well, let him fetch his last day to him, and make it always his company-keeper.—Bunyan White House Cheery with Plants. Mrs. Roosevelt has the good taste that prevents the overdecorating of a home. The White House to-day is a distinct improvement over that man sion as it used to be in the important particular of floral accessories and general ornamentation. The mistress of the White House is partial to grow ing flowers and plants rather than cut blossoms. The state rooms of the White House look cheery with pots of fuchsias and pepper plants glowing in the sun, with an occasional jardiniere of scarlet tipped poinsettia. Oriental palms in porcelain vases and ferns in quaint boxes of birch bark give a homelike look to the wide, bare halls of the lower wing. The entire ground floor is bright with growing things, many in bloom. Only an occasional vase of roses Is seen on the mantel of the blue room. A growing plant invariably has the place of honor oq the dining table. Science la a real savior because it helps us know ourselves and our world.

When Answering Advertisements Kindly Mention Thlo Roper. Hooked a Swordfish. Eight miles off Newport a twelve foot swordfish with a sword four feet long caught on an "80" hook by Hugh McMillan and G. G. Shoemaker, towed the fishermen's launch two miles, after having charged the boat repeat edly and scarred the stern in numer ous places. The monster was killed after half an hour's fight. It weighed several hundred pounds. When the big fish was first caught it charged to the surface, endangering the lives of two men and of other nien in two nearby launches. The captors ot the monster were towed almost out of sight of the men in the other boats. Persons ashore refused to believe that the two men caught the fish on their twenty-seven strand cotton line until the story was vouched for by the men in the other launches. Couldn't Account for It.
