I can't sleep if there's the least noise, such as a cat on the back fence, for instance." This powder will be effective." re plied Dr. White, after compounding a prescription. "When do I take it doctor?" "You don't take it. You give it to the cat in a little milk." Last Sunday two small boys were digging industriously in a vacant lot near the Nevs office when a gentle man who was passing stopped to give them a lecture. "Don't you know that it is a sin to work on Sunday unless it be a case of necessity." asked the good man. "Yes, sir," timidly replied one of the boys. "Then why don't you stop it?" ."Cause this is a case of necessity," replied the little philosopher. "A feller can't fish without bait. "Now boys, 1 have a few questions In fractions to ask," said s a Wayne trj-reacher. "Suppose I have "a piece of beefsteak and cut it into sixteen pieces, what would those pieces be called?" "Sixteenths," answered one boy af ter meditating a moment.' "Very good. And when the six teenths were cut in half, what would they be?" There was a silence in the class; but presently a little boy at the foot put up his hand. "Do you know, Johnny?" "Hash!" answered Johnny, con fidently. WITH THE EDITORS The Wisconsin democrats in their state platform have declared for all the fads and Isms that in recent years have danced like foam In the Domng sociological pot. its "ad vanced" attitude is calculated to make even the populists gasp, and Mr. Bryan, whom it endorses, will find it rather difficult to reconcile its radicalism with that "new con servatism of which he Is supposed to be the high priest. Fort Wayne News. THE ETERNAL FEMINNE. My Dear Martha: Warm as the days have been, the ; woman in town is charmingly attired No more creased and soiled thin waists topping . off light and dark wool skirts, against which the fas tidious have revolted for many moons, but in place we have chic linen and pongee suits cut on the very smartest possible lines, and worn with the simple, cool lingerie blouse. True, many linens lose their freshness with deplorable rapidity, and the delight of the morning is apt to be a wreck by night. This Is mostly because the quality of the linen is not correct. Purchase a coarse weave for serviceable wear and cut it on a plain model if you would be ultra smart, for the preten tious models with quantities of lace, whether' real or otherwise, are only In good taste for afternoon country wear never ' for the street. You will find these frocks surprisingly inexpensive, and there are no end of colorings to choose from. The creamy biscuit shade is delightfully cool, also the natural tones. I saw quite a modish costume of a silver gray linen; short skirt closely plaited around the hips and spread ing full just below them. The in evitable deep tuck was just above the hem. The short bolero coat was n plaits with pipings of Its own ma .frial, while the edge finished with iurver straps of fine white linen ibout three inches each, and the rounded ends lapped each other, giv ing a very new finish; there were elbow cuffs and collar of embroid ered batiste. Separate skirts and blouses have their place, but de cidedly it is not on the street. These tiny linen excuses for coats signify nothing in weight and unquestion ably they impart a finished appear ance. If the coat seems a discom fort you can fau back on the linen dress cut rounding back and front to any desirable depth which allows of a constant change of fresh guimpes. It is remarkable how long the bolero coats remain with us; corsages simu late the bolero by being trimmed high above the waist line which gives the coat effect. Modistes have vainly endeavored to do away with the bolero but the sensible woman knows it is neat as well as chic. The short sleeves have had a glori ous reign but the joy of the glove makers has been dampened by then inability to fill orders for long gloves. It is a frightfully extravagant fad yet it shows no sign of passing. 1 am told the new sleeve is betwixt elbow and wrist, but this is most un gainly. The latest and most at tractive short models open up the outside with an undersleeve of fine nandiwork or lace frills. Innu merable varieties are worked from this model, and with bright ideas, skillful hands for drapery coupled with a fair amount of patience, you can add all manner of grace to a modish little sleeve. Yours, my dear, JANE. FASHION HINTS. The High rieel Smart, bat Dangerous to Health. Compared with the fashionable Bhoo of the present day, the rawhide and leather sandals of our earliest forefa thers were hygienic and sensible. Iligh heels elevate the body into an unnatural position. To maintain the trunk at this false angle there is a certain amount of strain which has to be taken into ac- THE LATEST STYLES. count. The internal organs also are af fected, and the danger of falling and twisting or jolting the delicate struc tures of the body is Increased. High heels increase the risks of spraining the ankle. The heel Is sup ported on an insecure column Instead of a firm base, and a slip, a sudden movement or the catching of the heel on the edge of & step, and, presto, the thing is done, and the ankle once sprained Is liable to repeated accident of the same sort. Weakening of the "plantar arch" Is another evil attend ing the wearing of Louis heels. The heel is placed toward the middle of the foot instead of below the nat ural heel, which with the balls of the toes forms the arch of the foot. One function of this arch is to lessen shock upward to the brain and spine. The Louis heel lies Immediately be neath the center of the arch of the foot and weakens it, so destroying the spring or elastic quality of the foot. Have you ever observed the peculiar gait of the girl who wears high heels? She trips or Jerks her feet Into posi tion In i peculiarly ugly, short stepped fashion, which is the direct result of loss of play In the ankle, toe and foot joints. Any wearer of high heels knows their hideous effect upon the toes. The pointed toe Is in part to blame for the twisting of the toe joints, the corns and bunions, which bring joy to the heart of the chiropodist. There Is something remarkably beautiful in a girl child's foot, but its beauty is of the passing order if the girl when she reaches maturity Is permitted to adopt the fashionable footgear. The Illustra tion shows two of the latest models having moderately high heels. The slipper Is a smart affair carried out In bronze kid, the instep and vamp orna mentation being appliqued silk and iri descent beads. The boot is of white canvas with top of eyelet work.

Among the original ways of earning a living discovered by some of them may be mentioned those of visiting hairdresser, plant and cut flower adviser and furniture remover and packer. The latter is in great de mand, for the presence of a capable woman In addition to the contractor during the domestic upheaval of a re moval from one house to another haa been found to be of untold comfort.

WANTS LAW TO CONTROL THEM gays They Will Not Adequately Provide for Their Policyholder Unless Forced to Do So Voices in Opposition. Milwaukee, June 30. State Insur ance Commissioner Zeno M. Host ap peared before the Wisconsin life insur ance investigating committee and a large number of ollieinls of fraternal insurance companies. In an address Host declared as a result of ten years' observation his belief that these so cieties would not adopt adequate tates miles required to do so by statutory provision. The premium to be paid from year to year for a fixed amount of insurance, ho said, must bo an in creasing amount at all times to cover the full current or actual cost, accord ing to the attained age of the insured. Must Obey Mortality Laws. The premium to 1h paid may be a fixed amount, as of age at entry, while from year to year, as the insured gros older, the amount of insurance is re duced, being graded at all times to the aotu.nl and mathematical purchasing power of the amount paid. Without calculating or basing the rate of premi. tun upon tables of mortality the policy of life insurance lcomcs n gambling contract, pure and pimple, declared the commissioner. By no method can life insurance extending over a period of more than one year be written with out the accumulation of a reserve, or a gradual increase in cost, and no sys tem has yet been discovered or devised which will permit ignoring the laws of mortality and avoid failure and disas ter. Only Safe. Way to Do Business. "If we are to furnish safe insurance." said he. "It behooves ns to throw around the gateway of our institutions all proper safeguards, adequate rates, rigid medical selection, regular in crease in membership, accountability, restriction of investments and explicit contracts." FRATERNITY MEN APPROVE Except as to Two, Who Attack Host with Vigor. During the discussion which fol lowed several prominent fraternal in surance officials expressed the belief that the prevailing rates of that line of insurance should be increased. Most of the day was spent by the fraternal officers In discussing Host's recommen dations to the committee. Only two of the fraternal Insurance men present ob jectMl strenuously to Host's recom mendations. They were Edmund Jack son, an ex-scretary of the fraternal congress, and George Beyer, of the Legion of Honor, of Indianapolis. Jackson believed that the better way to regulate the fraternals would be to label them and make them show the public just what kind of business they were doing. He said that in this way it would be known that a fraternal as sociation was doing a purely fraternal business, and there would be no ques tion that the public would know what class of insurance they were getting. Jackson also said that the insurance commissioner's suggestion in regard to the worth of policies would practically place the fraternals on old-line insur ance basis. Host admitted this, but declared that the valuation of policies was an essen tial protection to the policyholders. Much objection was raised by 1). D.Ait kin, general counsel for the Maccabees, and John D. Dennison, for the Royal Neighbors, against the use of the Unit eel States experience table as a basis of computing mortality charge for fra ternals. It was proposed that the state arrange experience tables for the use of these societies. The committee ad journed until July 11. Friend of Abraham Lincoln Dies. Indianapolis, June 30. Captain Christopher Tyler Arms, an Intimate friend of Abraham Lincoln while the latter was a young lawyer in Spring field, 111., is dead, aged 93 years. He was a descendant of one of the oldest New England families and a pioneer in railroad construction. Destruction by Peasants.

The railroads of the United States bought 80.051.000 cross ties in 1905. The federal supreme court recently rendered a decision sustaining Geor gia's law prohibiting the running of freight trains on Sunday. As the result of frequent railway accidents between Brussels and Na- i mur many passengers by that route now wear large cards bearing their names and addresses pinned to their coats in order that there may be no difficulty in establishing their identity. Every snowstorm In winter, especial ly if the snow be damp, blocks the switches In the railroad yards and de lays trains, A Boston inventor now Las perfected a plan to heat the switches with pipes filled with oil. The t il pipe will not chill as do pipes filled with steam, and the high pressure ts tot required. Humor end Philosophy By DUNCAN M. SMITH PERT PARAGRAPHS. If women weren't vain they would be women in vain. The prayers of the industrious ara generally answered. Ignorance of the law employs a law yer and grows sad der and wiser. Some lies are Just lies and others are works of art. Success is as elu sive as the trout you did not hook. A lazy man is usually truthful, as It Is easier to tell the truth than to conceal It. The worst feature about whitewash, moral or material, is that It is bound to keep itself in evidence by rubbing off upon whoever comes near it. Anyway, Job never had to listen to a phonograph. If virtue were not sufficient unto it self it would stand a poor show. A rosy future seldom evolves out of a lurid past Modesty was a virtue possessed by the ancients. The June Bride. With smiling lips And winning ways The June bride trips Before our gaze, As light as air , And quite as free, A creature fair Indeed to see. Her dress of lace And other things In simple grace Around her clings. And just beneath Her brand new lid An orange wreath Is scarcely hid. The bridegroom wher. Oh, where is he? We do not care As long as she From time to time On deck is found And in the lime Light stands around. Though not In view, A knot is soon To tie him to This bride of June.

"Where Is that $10 I gave you the first of the month?" he growls. "Well," she replies reflectively, so as not to miss a single item, "I bought a new hat with it, a pair of shoes for the baby, the family groceries and next winter's supply of coal, and as I have only 113.50 of It left I thought I might like to have a little additional change for a possible emergency, If you can spare it."

H. Ham mond Co's plant only to find that a stupid hobo had been fooling with the alarm box. He was still stand ing by the box when the department arrived and seemed surprise that there should be so much excitement. At first it looked as through the hobo's time had come, but he seemed so blissfully unconcerned that the firemen let him go his way.
