New diseases of one sort or another are always cropping up as new condi tions give them an excuse. The latest Is autorosls, and It is rea!lv quite the thing to have. You get it driving a motor car. Only the real hero behind a $1.25 pair of goggles ran have it. and It Is said to begin with a burning sensation in the head and r dimness of vision. This Is followed by a dull ache all over the body and a constant fear of danger. So great is the power of the disease that a passing shadow on the roadside Is said to cause the suffering chauffeur to throw in Ills emergency brake and bring his car to a dead atop. It is never right to hope that a disease will become an epi demlc. but there are certainly possibil ities In autorosls. —Springfield. Mass.. Republican. Buying His Beef Carefully. James Hawks, a Marolehead provi sion dealer, with keen sense of humor, told the following story: An Irishman, captain of a vessel engaged in the gravel trade between Marblehead and Boston, came into his store for supplies, and. after care fully scrutinizing a piece of beef, asked: “How many pounds is there in that leg o' mate, sur?" “About 60,” said Hawks. “Waal." replied the dealer, for meat off the rump I get 25 cents a pound, an’ off the other end 5 cents." “Well.” said the captain. “I'll take about sixty pounds off th’ foive-cent Ind.” Poor Lo Becoming Civilized.

There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is bv constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con diti n of the mucous li- ing of the Eus- ■ tachian Tube. When this tube is in- j flamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is en tirely closed. Deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal conditi n. hearing will be de stroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is noth ing but an inflamed condition of the iiiuc us surfaces.

No article of drees becomes shabby so quickly, for want of a little care, as a hat; light, air and dust all tend to turn it brown, If It is exposed to their influences; It ought therefore to be kept in a hat box whenever It is not in use. On ordinary occasions a soft brush should be used. When the hat is wet it should never be wiped with a pocket handkerchief (unless a clean one is specially used for that purpose), but the superfluous moisture should be taken off with a dry soft cloth. If it has received only a partial sprinkling, and a rough mottled ip* pearance is left, dip a hat brush lightly in cold water and pass It gen* tly round in the same direction as the nap. When all parts are uniformly damp, take a hard brush, and with that bring the nap to lta former state of even ness; then lay the hat on its side on a clean cloth for the night to dry. After it has been brushed with the ordinary hat brush next morning. It ' will look little the worse for the wet* I ting it has undergone. The better the j quality of the hat, the more times may .this be repeated without injuring it. Bulges or indentations may be re* : moved by warming the hat (by steam is preferable) ar.d taking them out with a hot iron. Any attempts to re store the shape by other means will j probably result In cracking the hat. ; Gloss may be removed, when after some wear the nap becomes dub and gray looking, by brushing with s hot brush, or, better, by gently pressing a three times round in the direction of flatiron, ordinarily heated, two or the nap. Doubtful About His Customers. Many years ago “Parson" Field ' preached in Weston. Mass., and one j day when he stood in his doorway waiting for the village baker's wagon, of which one John Macomber was the . driver, he noticed that the horse had ! wandered into the graveyard, where he was quietly eating, while his driver gossiped with a neighbor. When John finally carac along the parson said. “Well, John. I see you have a uew route; do you find them good customers?" | ••Wall,” said John. “I can'* tell yet; yer see, there ain't none of uni up yet.” Destructive to Plant tLice. 1 Fifty-eight persons competed to get Ihe prize offered at Frankfort.

Hutb-nd Well Knew the Weak Point of Hio Loved One. "I beard W. K. Vanderbilt talk the l»i»t time I was abroad,” said a Pitts- | burg man. "It was at the Grand bote! in Rome, and Mr. Vanderbilt ; dined at the table next to mine. He j bad just returned from a long trip in a motor car and his talk, naturally, I dealt with motoring in the main. “Mr. Vanderbilt said that there were a good many points and woes in cidental to motoring. Most of them, though, could be avoided by good management. He said he knew a man who had started with a friend on a week's tour in & big car and they had stayed two weeks because they enjoyed themselves so much. 'When finally they got back to town it was a Monday night and very la*e. Mr. Vanderbilt’s friend, timid about his reception, went home and his wife received him as coldly as he bad expected she would do. What he dreaded, though, was an explosion— an hour’s wild scolding and upbraid ing. As be talked he tried to think of some way to escape this explosion and finally an idea came to him. "I am so glad to be back here with you. dear.' he said. ‘But I pity Smith. Poor old Smith!’ ” ‘What is the matter with Smith?* said tbe lady sharply. ‘Ah. poor fellow,’ said her hus band. 'At this moment his wife is giving him the very old deuce.’ "The lady's manner softened. That 1 wily speech got her husband off. She , would not show herself a common ; scold, like Mrs. Smith." Passengers Without Money in Russia. He was a Russian and wanted to go back to his native heath. So he dropped into the ticket office and em broiled Passenger Agent Charlie Miles in a debate on the reasonable ness of second class rates to New York. Sav. mister, please, you make It a little bit less, please, and to-morrow I come in anil buy the ticket.” said j tin* subject of the Czar. “You charge . too much. Sure, you can believe me 1 when I tell you it is too much money. 1 can travel from St. Petersburg to j Manchuria for $15.” Miles explained that he had no dis cretion in the matter and would have to charge the established tariff rate. "Please, mister, you make it a little less.” persisted the prospective pas- I setger. “in my country we do not treat a foreigner so. You have no money; you get on a train; you say to the conductor you have no money. Then you hand him 4.631* copecks, which Is $2 in your money, and he le*s you ride for two days."—San Francisco Chronicle. Friendship Between Nations. In the interchange of amenities nt recent banquet given to the French naval officers in London Premier Bal four gave utterance to what we are glad to believe is a truth, and if so a very gratifying one. Speaking of the new and cordial relations that had been established between the nations repr< sen ted by guests and hosts, he said: "There have been times when the idea of national friendship except ing for purpose of annoying some third party hardly came within the view of practical politicians, but glad 1 am to think that these days are now gone." Loud applause greeted this statement. He might even have put the matter in a positive and yet stronger way by saying that hardly il over before had there been a time when any other consideration tlnn that of temporary expediency was made the basis of an entente cordiale between nations. —Boston Transcript A Far-Seeing Scot. The following story Is told of an eccentric Scottish keeper on an estate in the north of Scotland: He was once guiding a shooting par ty up near the top of a steep and high mountain. Suddenly, when they had reached a great height, one of the heaters gave a loud yell, and seized himself by the bark of the neck. Through his interlocked white fingers bright blood oozed. The man ha.l been peppered with stray shot in the nape. The keeper, seeing the blood, and thinking the accident much worse than it really was. bawled out excit edly— " Kin. Dugald! Kin doon the hill! Heaven only kens hoo far we’ll hn’e to cairry ye!” Plain as Day. Blanche and Harry, aged 5 and t respectively, were very fond of mnpl< sugar.

The explanation was not convincing to Blanche, however, and she aske her brother If he believed It. Harry, who never doubted anythin hla mother said. Immediately replied "Why. of course; you tap maple tree: and get maple sugar just the same a you tap an oak tree aud get tapioca.' (Lipplncott’s) « The Short Knitted Jacket.

To come down to more modern times, the stories of the bravery dis played by woman hi our own Indian wars are enough to thrill the coldest blood. Sometimes a woman left alone tc look out for her children would be attacked by a band of Indians. She would barricade the house and try in every way to repulse them', and when all else fai’ed would shoot first her children and then herself. In the Civil War and in the war with Spain there were hundreds of women who wanted to go to the front as nurses; in fact, more volunteered than could be used. They were will ing to face any danger if they could only minister to the sick and suffer ing. And every-day heroism is often greater than that of the battlefield, where patriotism inspires bravery. What could be more heroic than ths action of the nuns in the fire at St. Mary's Hospital at Jamaica. I-. I.? One of the sisters discovered the fire in the hospital stable and her prompt action saved the hospital. She called up police headquarters and had the night operator sound the alarm and send assistance; then she rang the gong that awakened the doc tors. If this ian’t bravery it would be rather Interesting to have oravery defined.—Chicago American. CHANGE IN BANKING HOUSE. Death of Baron Rothschild Necessitat ed Reconstruction. The death of Baron Alphonse De Rothschild has entailed the recon struction of the French branch of the famous banking house. An official statement has just been made as to the details of this rearrangement. The old firm, known as Rothschild Freres. which consisted of the brothers Al phone. Gustave and Edmond De Roths child. is dissolved, but the two surviv ing brothers. Barons Gustave and Ed mond. reserve to themselves the right of liquidating the business, which they then proceed to reconstruct, taking in to partnership Baron Edouard Al phonse. son of the late Baron Al phonse. and retaining the firm s old title of Rothschild Freres. The cap ital is $10,000,000. subscribed in three equal shares, but whereas the two senior partners contribute a portion of their shares in good will and in es tates already belonging to the firm the newromer contributes the whole cf h*3 third in cash. One About Ducks. Here seems to be a nice, cool stream for one of Frank N. Busch’s duck yarns. Mr. Busch was up in the Fox river country, staying at a farmer's house. One morning the farr**'- * up two live ducks in his hands and exclaimed: "Ain't they fine canvas backs? Gee. but I had to pay for ’em. too—cost $4 apiece. But they are raisers. Next year from these I'll have ducks enough to stock a marsh.’’ "Canvas backs, your grandfather." replied Mr. Busch. "They arc b*ue mud hens, both of them.” "No. no. I know- the man that raised ’em: sold him the corn that he fed to them —I know." The dispute grew thick and furious. Mr. Busch harrened to have an illus tra'rl book on ornithology in his trunk. He brought it out and showed the farmer the difference in looks. 'T‘ • ::n of the hoe and the ducks shrok h’s head ruefully for a moment. Suddenly his face brightened. He said* "Your took rho* looks like 1 done been cheated: but. may be, they done issued a later edition.” Berthelct a Busy Man. One of tue busiest men in France is Chemist Borthelot.

Long has a conviction that speeches are ns much of a bore to the audience us they are to the speechiftakers. T always feel glad when called upon to make a speech, however.” he says, ‘Tor I am in the position of a certain amateur actor. He was in all the th« atricals going In his small town. He played all sorts of parts. Some one nkked him one day if he did not ge. tired of taking part iu every private theatrical performance. ‘‘‘Yes.’ said the young fellow; T don't like to act a bit; but 1 know If I’m not on the stage I’ll have to sit in the audience..’” Hardly Flattaring to Witta.

Animals Have an Irresistible Liking for the Juicy Roots. "Turnips taste better to a deer than whisky does to an Indian, aud the animal will run as great risks to get the vegetable as the red rnan will to get the liquor/’ said Otto Wilke of International Kails at St. I.ouis. "I know men who make it their annual custom to plant turnips in the spring in some secluded spot In a game country, just so they will be assured of easy venison in the fall, or during the summer months, if they happen to live in the woods them selves. "If a turnip patch is located in any district where there are deer, every deer within that district will visit it several times a week, the time of day (hey 'make their visits depending upon the wariness of the animals and the nearness of settlers. "Even after scow falls these visits are continued, as long as any of the vegetables are left in the ground. Until the snow gets too deep you can see where it is pawed away after night in search after the succulent roots. "Through the more sparsely settled districts they are actually pests to the homesteader who has a garden, for nothing but an eight foot rence will keep them from eating the growing things and trampling the ground all up. like a flock of sheep. It does not matter how near the vegetables are to the house, the deer will get into them Just the same, the only differ ence being that they will come around later in the eveclng. when the dark ness covers their movements.” —Du- luth Herald. UNSANITARY SPOT FOR GRAVE. Somewhat Peculiar Objection to Laat Resting Place. When Mr. and Mrs. Grant removed from the big city and purchased a home in a country village one of their first visits was to the cemetery. "Wo want to select a burial ground.” Mr. Grant remarked, “and life is uncertain, so we had better attend to it during this dry spell while the walking is good." It occurred to Mrs. Grant that this was hardly a sufficient reason for so prompt a decision, but she made no objection to the plan, and their first walk was to the cemetery. "There seems to be a good deal of room on high land,” remarked Mrs. Grant. "We can easily find a good place there.” "It’s too high.” objected Mr. Grant: "that’s too much of a hill to climb. Let's look down toward the loch.” The lots toward the loch pleased Mrs. Grant even better than the hill. "There.
