Mama's Numerous Duties.
Little Dot —Mama! Mama!” Mama (Sn the next room) —What? Little Dot—My kittle has caught a mouse, and she acts hungry. Please come and co~k it for her.”—New York Weekly. An Appropriate Gift. His mother-in-law had been with them for three long weeks. “To-morrow,” sa!d his wife, “will be mam's birthday. I wish I could think of something appropriate to give her.” “Why not give her a railroad ticket home?” sugges.ed her husband.—New York Weekly. Not a Cross-Breed. “Is that your deg, John?” queried Ihe mistress with a smiling glance at the strange mongrel that hid behind the coachman’s heels. “No, ma’am,” replied John, "he just come in this morning, and I haven't got the heart to drive him away.” “He looks like a cross-breed, doesn't he?” returned the lady. “Oh. no. ma’am," was the assuring rejoinder of John, "he isn't a cross breed. He is a cheerful breed. lie has done no hing but hang aroun I and act happy ever since he came in.”—Home Magazine. Nothing to Get. Golctt Burgess was talking at a theatrical supper in New York about “The Lark," his delightful little paper that failed. "Nearly all good papers fail," said he. I have an aged friend who runs a splendid paper in a small Western village. The last copy my friend sent me had this editorial paragraph marked in blue pencil: " ‘Burglars centered our house last night. To the everlasting shame of the community for whoso welfare we have labored thirty-eight years, be it said they got nothing,' ” A Budding Financier. "Do you think your boy will ever at tain your standing as a financier?" "I guess he'll do,” answered the emi nent operator. "Last week he gave mo a quarter to keep for him, and he lias already drawn $2.4.1 on account.” Extraction. “How’d your scheme for extracting gold from sea water turn out?” “Made my fortune." “You really extracted gold from sea water?” “No|»e: but I extracted a-plenty from those who took stock in my scheme.” Adam’s Punishment. Arnold Daly is responsible for this one, which happened in a school where Bible study is part of the course. "What sin did Adam commit?” “He ate forbidden fruit.” “‘Right. What tempted Adam?” “Eve.'' “Not really Eve, but the serpent. And how was Adam punished?” The girl hesitated and looked con fused. Behind her sat a little eight year-old who raised her hand and said: “Please, pastor, I kn :w.” “Wtll, tell us; how was Adam pun ished?” "He had to marry Eve.”—Young's Magazine. Well Named. The train had stopped at a little town on the prairie. The passenger with the skull cap stuck his head out of the window and read the name over the door of the sta tion. "Star View,” he said. “Well, that's a good name, anyway.” "Yen, sir,” responded the dejected villager on the station platform, “and it fits the durned town like a glove. If you should come here to make a livin', mister, it’d starve you, all right, all right.” Horse Still Useful. Moe Rose —Do you think the automo bile is replacing the horse?

Eczema Lasted 7 Years —Face Was All Raw—Skin Specialists Failed, But Cuticura Effected Cure. “When my little boy was six weeks old an eruption broke out on his face. I took him to a doctor, but his face kept on getting worse until it got so bad that no one could look at him. His whole face was one crust and must have been very painful. Ho scratched day and night until his face was raw. Then I took him to all the best specialists in skin diseases but they could not do much for him. The eczema got on his arms and legs and wo could not got a night’s sleep in months. I got a set of Cuticura Reme dies and he felt relieved the first time I used them. I gave the Cuticura Remedies a good trial and gradually the eczema healed all up. He is now seven years old and I think the trou ble will never return. Mrs. John G. Klumpp. 80 Niagara St., Newark, N. J./OcL 17 and 22. 1907.” THOUGHT IT NATIONAL TRAIT. Driver Couldn't Understand American Not Being in a Hurry. A traveler returned from Jaffa tells tale at his own expense. Having journeyed to the historical seaport on his way to Jerusalem, he succeeded in hiring a conveyance to carry him to the station. By speech and gesture he informed the native driver that he wished to be carried In a leisurely, sightseeing fashion through as many as possible of the principal thorough fares of Jaffa, and to bo delivered at the terminal Just in time to take the outgoing train. He had no sooner seated himself in the vehicle, however, than the driver whipped up his horse and whirled the dismayed traveler at a furious pace I through all the dust and over all the , stones of the notoriously rough streets . of Jaffa. The passenger was too bus- ' lly employed in saving his bones to be able to see anything of the interesting town. Arriving at the station, he found that he still had two hours to wait. "Why in the world." he demanded. Indignantly, "did you ever hurry like that?” “You American,*' responded the driver, with an expressive shrug. "All ; American like go very much fast.”— i Youth's Companion. AN EXPLANATION. "Why didn't you answer your teach er when she spoke to you in the arith metic class, Ethel?” "Coz mamma told me I muthn't tbpeak durin’ thcool hourtb.” A GOOD COLD. "That seems a very bad cold you've got, my little man!” a very good cold; it’s kept me away from school for two weeks now! * CHANGE IN FOOD Works Wonders in Health. It is worth knowing that a change in food can cure dyspepsia, "I deem It my duty to Jet you know how Grape- Nuts food has cured me of indigestion. “I had been troubled with It for years, until iast year my doctor recom mended Grape-Nuts food to be used every morning. I followed instruc tions and now I am entirely well. "The whole family like Grape-Nuts, we use four packages a week. You are welcome to use this testimonial as you see fit.” The reason this lady was helped by the use of Grape-Nuts food, is that it is predlgested by natural processes and therefore does not tax the stom ach as the food she had been using: it also contains the elements required for building up the nervous system. If tiiat part of the human body is in perfect working order, there can be no dyspepsia, for nervous energy repre sents the steam that drives the engine. When the nervous system is run down, the machinery of the body works badly. Grape-Nuts food can be used by small children as well as adults. It is perfectly cooked and ready for instant use.

PRINCE RUPERT THE PROMISING BY EDWARD . ANGUS p&iArcz JjUPZST' WZSCZ JZZS&Z&T JL Y&J 2/? JLGO In the western half of this new world there is scarcely a city that does not hold‘one or more citizens who can boast of having seen the place grow from a village to what it is to-day. but here nt the western end of the Grand Trunk-Pacific railway we have the rare opportunity of looking forward and fashioning in our mind's eye a city sure to be —Prince Rupert, the Promising. Added interest Is given to the story of the future possibilities of this pro posed new pet on the far north coast of the Pacific by the fuct that a news item has been largely circulated re cently to the effect that the entire townslte of Prince Rupert had been sold for SIOO,OOO gives added interest to the story of the future possibilities of this proposed new port on the far north coast of the Pacific. Some en terprising gentlemen have a townsite some ten miles from the terminus of tho Canadian trans-continental rail way, which they call Prince Rupert. Construction of Wharf at Prince Rupert. That is the townslte referred to In the dispatch, but it is not the real Prince Rupert Prince Rupert Is situated 550 miles north of Vancouver and 40 miles south of the Alaskan boundary. It is in the same latitude as London and has a climate whose mean temperature is about the same as that of the metropo lis of the British Isles. The city is all being planned, in ad vance of any building, and nothing is being overlooked which will add to the beauty and symmetry of the city to be. The site is a picturesque one. The land slopes back gently for distances ranging from half a mile to two or three miles. Here and there the ground rises abruptly, providing the neces sary fall for drainage nad sewerage, while a shore line five or six miles in extent sweeps around the front of the city. The view from these elevated stations and from back of the town site is a charming one. On the oppo site shore mountains slope down to the water. To the northwest, through a channel studded with islands, is situ ated the famous Indian village of Met lakatia, known on the coast as the "Holy City.” Prince Rupert lies In (he center of the salmon fishing industry of British Columbia, and In the immediate vicin ity of a large number of canneries Which ship their product throughout FEAR THE WHITE RACE. Pronounced Animosity That Is Felt Throughout the Orient. How hostility against the white race is being nursed in China is disclosed In the following from the North China Daily News: "There lives in Changte fu, Honan, a native who has obtained a cyclostyle outfit, by the aid of which he is enabled at uncertain intervals to give to the public the benefit of his views. The animus he feels toward foreigners is unmistakable, nor does he lack the courage of his convictions. Of the world’s five continents, we arc told, the white race has gained pos session of four, thus giving evidence of their Intention to destroy ail other races but their own. “The black, red and brown races have no ability—they cannot stand be fore the all-conquering white race. Slowly they are being exterminated. All the territories to the northeast, north, .northwest, west, southwest and south have been appropriated by the tho world. Here is also to be found ofT the banks of Qui-<n Charlotte islands the finest halibut fishing that is known to exist, tons of which are being taken annually to supply eastern markets, and this traffic will be great ly augmented upon the completion of transportation facilities right at hand. Prince Rupert is also on the route of tho celebrated "Sail up the Sound." which, for wild grand'iir, excels al most anything to be found in the world from the deck of a Bea-golng ship, while the trains of this new rail way traverse some of the finest scenery to be found on the American continent. Prince Rupert Is surrounded by a country whose natural resources are more rich and varied than mose of any other country known to the pres ent generation. And her sphere Is ever widening, her natural trade zone Is daily being extended north, and still further north. Every traveler and explorer who goes into the far north comes out with new stories of that much maligned land, until their song of praise swells Into a sublime chorus, compelling us by the mere preponderance of evi dence to listen and to learn. Because It has been held bark: be cause settlers were not suffered to rush iu before there was need of set tlement. to scuffie and scramble and squat in picturesque confusion. Prince Rupert is likely to build up rapidly. Prince Rupert has many advantages. It has a mild climate. It is new und attractive. It is to he a model city in every sense of the word. It guards what is said to be the finest natural harbor on the coast, if not in the world. It Is the terminal town of n trans-continental railway, which bids fair to surpass anything ever attempt ed in the way of railway construction on this continent, crossing from ocean to ocean without a single milo of mountain grade, or grade that can. by any stretch of imagination, be consid ered an obstacle to the economical op eration of the road. To this new port will come tho ships of the Seven seas Ships of tho east, laden with Bilk and rice, will soon be riding at anchor in this splendid har bor, to sail away laden with lumber; ships from the west with the wares of the west; ships from the shores of far off continents, trading through the new and picturesque port of Prince Ru perL white race, and because this race further tried to take possession of Manchuria Japan had to fight for over a year. ” 'The world,' concludes our writer, 'hns become a great arena for the struggle between the white and yellow races. If the yellow race does not speedily strengthen itself It will soon be In the position of the red, brown and black races, which have suc cumbed.’ The article finishes with the flat assertion that the white men have come to destroy China."

Massachusetts Woman Has Mastered Many Difficult Languages. Boston.—An addition to the Inter national fame won by American wom en has been made through the recent triumphs of Miss Mary Elizabeth S. Colton of Easthampton, now on her way home from the far east, who has recently achieved the honor of being the champion linguist of the world. Miss Colton speaks 40 languages flu ently—that is, she has a conversation al and reading knowledge of each and has also made a careful study of relig- ion and philosophy in each of the dif ferent tongues. Previous to Miss Colton’s new rec ord the most accomplished linguist known claimed a knowledge of only .*l3 languages. Miss Colton's list, moreover, in cludes a long roll of different tongues, which are numbered among the most difficult in the world to learn and which include Chinese, Pali, Avestan. Sanscrit, Hebrew, Syrian, Assyrian, Arabic and Persian. While this now famous American woman was following the occupation of a vocal teacher at the Farmington (Conn.) Seminary for Girls, a number of years ago she first became inter ested in the Oriental languages through having been brought in con tact with several pupils from the far east. Her intense interest became a passion, and in the interval since then she has devoted nearly all her time to the mastering of the different tongues. Many years ago she becamo a fluent user of the romance languages, •uch as Italian, Spanish and French. The greatest tribute to her wonder :ul memory lies in the fact that the roots of the different numerous east ern languages which she has learned are all entirely different from those of the western tongues. In the pres ent-day colleges throughout the world separate courses are held In such lan guages as Hebrew, Sanscrit anti Per sian, and to obtain a working knowl edge of any single one is considered a difficult tnsk. When Miss Colton first took up the study of the eastern langues she was located not far from Yale college, and it was there that she acquired her ele mentary training in these different tongues. Within a short time the young woman had come to be looked u|»on as a prodigy among the most learned Yale professors. Miss Coltcn and Prof. Spooner have been on the borderland of Afghanis tan. among the mountains, where the first articulate speech Is supposed to have originated. TO LEAD PROHIBITION PARTY.

What is Pe-ru-na? Is it a Catarrh Remedy, or a Tonic, or is it Both? Bome people call Peruna a great tonic. Others refer to Penrna as a great catarrh remedy. Which of these people are right? Is it more proper to call Parana a ca tarrh remedy than to call it a tonic? Oar reply is, that Perana is both a tonic and a catarrh remedy. Indeed, there can be no effectual catarrh remedy that is not also a tonic. In order to thoroughly relieve any case of catarrh, a remedy must not only have a specific action on the mucous membranes affected by the catarrh, but it must have a general tonio action on the nervous system. Catarrh, even in persons who are otherwise strong, is a weakened condi tion of some mucous membrane. There must be something to strengthen the circulation, to give tone to the arteries, and to raise the vital forces. Perhaps no vegetable remedy in the world has attracted so much attention from medical writers as HYDRASTIS CANADENSIB. The wonderful efficacy of this herb has been recognized many years, and is growing in its hold upon the medical profession. When joined with CTTBEBS and COPAIBA a trio of medical agents is formed in Peruna which constitutes a specific rem edy for catarrh that in the present state of medical progress cannot be im proved upon. This action, reinforced by such renowned tonics as COLLIN SONIA CANADENSIS, CORYDALIS PORMOSA and CEDRON SEED, ought to make this compound an ideal remedy for catarrh in all its stages and locations in the body. From a theoretical standpoint, therefore, Peruna is beyond criticism. The use of Peruna, confirms this opinion. Numberless testimonials from every quarter of the earth furnish ample evidence that this judgment is not over enthusiastic. When practical experience confirms a well-grounded theory the result is a truth that cannot be shaken. Manufactured by Peruna Drug Manufacturing Company, Columbus, Ohio.
