BURDSALL , POPULAR DELUSIONS Delusions of the public mind are not easily created, but once established they survive all contradictins and ex planations, sometimes for centuries. Books founded on the preposterous Idea that the little Dauphin (Louis XVII.) did not die of disease and pri vation in the Temple are still written and find credulous readers. Sober minded historians may take small ac count of Lambert Simnel and Perkin War beck, but the popular delusion that the sons of King Edward IV. and Eliz abeth Woodville, who died in the Tow er of London, though their uncle Rich ard did not have them murdered, lived to manhood and were persecuted by Henry VII, survived many years of denial. ; The wild idea, formed in the disordered brain of Delia Bacon, that Francis Bacon wrote the plays of Shakespeare, is the only foundation of a delusion which has affected the minds of thousands of otherwise ra tional men and women. The deliberate inventor of a delus ion, if he chooses the time and place aptly, can generally afford to face ths doubting Thomases with perfect equa nimity. History shows that he need not be careful even consistently to stick to all the details of his imposture. Credulity is a common human attri bute. An incredulous mind Is not a possession likely to secure much hap piness to its owner or to enjoy much popularity. Cagliostro was suspected and denounced by many well-meaning persons in Paris long before his dis appearance. There must have been plenty to doubt the yarns of Psalaman azar, and Rougemont did not fool ev erybody. But the doubters were al ways in the minority. The world likes a good etory, well told and per sistently repeated. Above all, the sense of fairness upon which humanity is apt to pride itself, induces people to cling to their belief in the one who tells them the good story first A myth, once accepted as a fact, keeps cropping up in literature to de ceive new generations of the credulous The Druce case was not closed, by anz means, when the British Home Secre tary caused the opening of the coffin of Thomas Druce. The story that Druce and the fifth Duke of Portland, who lived some years after Druce's death, were identical will be gravely discussed, we have no doubt, quarter of a century hence. There are people living in the twentieth century who still believe in Ossian. The false statement that Chinese plays are so long that the performance of one fre quently occupies days or weeks, found fj ft rf-- Oalf tlttfiCVMof M2eOTtala4 la Hi tefsrt tst; ed on the misconception of the Chinese theater by early European travelers, is still credited and frequently appears in print to point a moral and adorn a tale. Facile impostors who extract large sums of money from individuals, are naturally, bound to be exposed long before they who subsist on trivial con tributions from many. But the impos tures of Mme. Humbert and Cassia Chadwick were successful for a long while, and how utterly lacking in evi dence of any sort they were found to be when exposed? The Keely motor was always stationary, yet many seemingly sensible persons believed in Keely. The truth is that mankind is very easily fooled, and that, if you can not fool all the people all tbe time, if you have the genius for imposture, you can fool a great many of the people most of the time. N. Y. Times. PRESIDENT DIAZ The meeting of President Taft and President Diaz at El Paso, Texas, re cently brought the Great Mexican statesman under the eye of the whole American public. President Diaz is loved in his country and greatly ad mired over the entire world. The Washington Star pays the following tribute to him: "President Diaz is accredited with having made Mexico. He has been some time on the job, but, when he began, things were in a very unprom ising condition. A strong man was needed, and the people soon discover ed that in him they had a master state builder. He showed both grasp and firmness, and under his hand progress began. Order succeeded disorder. Laws were enforced. Public credit was established. At home and abroad the name of Mexico was advanced in estimation. It stands now very high wherever known. In America we have been follow ing the career of this extraordinary man with the closest attention and the liveliest appreciation. So great has been American trust in him, in deed, American capital in large vol ume has sought and found Investment in Mexico, and is an important fac tor in the present development of the country. American visitors have in creased year by year, until many of our traveled people know Mexico al most as well as they do the familiar sections of their own land. They are well received, well entertained, and tell upon their return of the beauti ful cities and growing towns of which Mexico now boasts. Many progres sive Americans have settled across the border, and feel at home. The question is often asked, what of the future? Is order so well estab lished, continued progress 'so well as sured, that the passing of President Diaz will bring no reaction? He is surrounded by strong men, though none appears to equal him. Soldier and statesman are well united in him. and show In all what he has achieved. He is an old man, approaching eighty, and, although still vigorous, he cannot be expected to hold the reins much longer. When he lays them down and leaves tho box, then what about the coach? Though President Diaz has over shadowed all of his countrymen, It is not to be supposed that he is essen tial to the security of his work. Men have grown up In his shadow and de veloped under the inspiration of his example who have in them the ca pacity for big things, and when the hour strikes one of them will stand forth and show his quality. He may not measure up to the full Diaz stand ard, but is it necessary that he should? Diaz for his day, and the new man for his. All that Diaz has done will descend to his successor, and it will be for the latter to build still higher upon that solid foundation," BANQUET TO-NIGHT You Can Safely Eat One if You Take Two Mi-o-na Tablets Afterwards.

Webb Lodge, No. 24, F. & A. M.. stated meeting. htoote u u HOSPITAL The annual Hospital Tag Day, which has for several years past been so successfully managed by the Ladies' Aid Society of Reid Memorial Hospital, has been appointed by the ladies this year for Thursday, October 21st One of the chief needs of the Hospital and the people of the city, who have friends there, has been and is, some convenient and inexpensive means of transportation to and from the insti tution. A year or more ago a corporation was formed to pro vide a means of cheap transportation about the city which it was hoped might supply this need concerning the Hospital. A large electric machine was purchased by this company which proved impracticable and no substantial benefit was realized from it. The Hospital had nothing to do with the purchase of this conveyance, nor with the company, except some of the trus tees were stockholders in the company aa individual?. The ladies of the Aid Society of the Hospital have determined, in case the donations by our citizens, are as generous as they hope for, to devote the proceeds of this year's Tag Day, to pro viding a suitable conveyance, to be run to and from the Hospital, to be owned and controlled by the Institution and for its benefit The purpose and plan of the ladies is, to provide such means of transportation to and from the Hospital primarily for the use and benefit of such of our citizens who have friends there, or who wish to visit the institution and who do not own private conveyances. It is purposed that such conveyance shall be con trolled by the Hospital management and run to and from the institution at convenient hours, for a nominal fare of not more than ten cents each way per passenger. While such means of transportation is Intended primarily for tbe class of citizens referred to, it will of course be open to the use of all citizens alike, who wish to visit the Hospital for any purpose, or to those who wish to use it between the points it will run. The physicians of the city generally, and all who are familiar with the Hospital work, are in hearty sympathy with this purpose of the ladies, because all realize that it will supply a long felt need, both of the Hospital and all our citizens who have occasion to visit the institution for any purpose.

Should the Man Smoke &t Home? COLONEL JOHN SNEED, having dined with satisfaction to him self and pleasure to bis wife lighted a cigar and strolled around tbe corner to the modest cot tage in which his son-in-law had re cently established himself.

"Yes, he's at home, papa," the daugh ter replied, and a rosier flush came Into her cheeks aa sue added. "lie's just gone to the woodshed for a mo inent." Colonel Sneed noticed the heightened color, and his curiosity was aroused. "It's a pretty warm day." he re marked, with a twinkle in his eye. "1 don't reckon he's goiu" to build a fire. Is be?" "No, papa, it isn't tbnt. I told he thought I 1 be went out there to smoke." "What," exclaimed the colonel "gone to the woodshed to smoke! What in tbe world! Why don't be get on the roof or sit on tbe gatepost? Why don't be come Into the house or say, little girl, is this some of your doin's?" And he looked nt his daughter sternly through the incense that arose from bis cigar. "Well. well, papa." she replied falter ingly. "I don't want him to smoke in tbe bouse, and I thought we ought to begin risrht and" "Huh!" grunted the colonel.

Cure Fol lowed in 5 Hours. A prominent medical man, who suf fered with a severe cough and cold on the lungs, often being kept awake all night, and weakened by loss of sleep, finally discovered a simple formula, which will cure any cough in five hour3 by the clock. It is a laxative tonic cough syprup, which can be made at home by any one and the formula is here given for the benefit of those who pass sleepless" nights in painful par oxysms. Those who have tried it say it is magical, and beats any high-priced slow-acting cough medicine ever sold. Mix In a bottle one-half ounce fluid wild cherry bark, one ounce compound essence cardlol and three ounces syrup white pine compound. Take twenty drops every half hour for four hours. Then take one-half to one teaspoonfui three or four times a day. Give chil dren less, according to age. This will tone up and rid the system of deep seated coughs every time. home. Tou never "aerd oT a man with a cigar in hia mouth breakln up the furniture or draggtn' hia wife around the room by the hair of her head, did you? No, 1 guess not!

Of course yon can always get too much of a good thing. Too much tobacco will work barm in time, but so will too much bam and eggs, and tbe man who smokes at borne isn't half aa likely to overdo it as tbe man who has to go out in tbe woodshed or to the corner saloon or to tbe club.

There never was a road yet tbat didn't ruu In two directions, and un less you stand still you've got to travel one way or tbe other.
