LIKE TO BE YOUNG AGAIN?
Yen? Well, Here Is One Man Who
Would Rather Be Ecused.
"We all say that we'd like to be
young again, but I doubt if we really
mean it," says HIarwy Sutherland in
Ainslee's. "\'d like to have as good
health as we had when we cast our
first vote. and we'I like it it we didn't
have to visit the dentist so often and
so expensively. But if it came to the
point that the genii bounced out be
fore us and sulkily growled: 'What is
your wish? I will obey, I and the oth

should study quite awhile, with many
a 'Why-ah, let me see now,' before
we plucked up the courage to blurt
out. 'Make me twenty-one again.'
"Because, you know, you haven't
any too much sense now, with all
your experience of the world, and if
you were twenty-one again it would
have to be in mind as well as in body.
The mind is what the body is. It
seems a terrible price to pay for a
new set of teeth and an undiscriminat

that weary, tortuous road; to discover

A QUEER PICTURE THING.
The Way One Art Treaxure Was Res-.
cued From Oblivion.
Few chapters in the world's history
are nore curious and interesting than
that which deals with the fortunes of
its art treasures. In the cathedral at
Montreal- is. or was a few years ago,
a large piece of tapestry which had
been discovered in a back street of a
New England town. The story is told
in 'Mrs. Silsbee's "Half Century of
One day a certain 'Mr. Miller passing
through Derby street saw a woman
beating clouds of dust from a carpet.
Something peculiar in its appearance
made him stop and look closely at it,
when he discovered, to his astonish
nent, that it was a splendid piece of
tapestry, with life sized figures
wrought from Raphael's cartoon,
"Feed -My Lambs."
The woman was quite willing to
tell how she obtained it. It was, in
fact, a standiLg grievance to her. Her
husband was a sailor, and when he
went out on one of his voyages she
had begged him to bring her a carpet
for her best room. As it happened, he
did not visit a port where he could
buy a carpet, but rolled up In a little
shop on the quay at Malta he had
found the tapestry and purchased it,
thinking it might answer the purpose.
It was too large for the room, and the
woman had to turn a big piece under.
She folded the piece back, revealing
part of the superb border of fruit and
flowers, wrought in silk and gold
thread, as fresh as when it was first
worhed. But the owner eyed it with
contempt. She neyer did like the
queer lActare thing, she declared.
It was the opportunity of a lifetime.
Mr. Miller promptly offered her the
choice of any carpet in the stores in
exchange for her "queer picture
thing," and the woman as promptly
accepted the offer. They went down
town together, and she sel-cted, with
unbounded delight, a hidekas pattern
of glowing reds and greens. Her face
was full of triumph when she re
turned. The best room at last was to
have a carpet that was a carpet!
It is safe to say that no bargain ever
gave more complete satisfaction to
both parties than the one made, that
morning in Derby street, Salem.

he said, "and if a man or woman

low the Product Is Obtained In the
M1iddle of the Colorado Desert.
In the middle of the Colorado desert,
a little to the north of the Mexican
border and 264 feet below the level of
the sea, lies a field of crystallized salt
more than a thousand acres in extent,
presenting a surface as white as snow
ard beneath the noonday glare of the
sun so dazzling that the naked eye
cannot stand its radiance. It stretches
away for miles and miles about Salton,
Colo., an ocean of blazing, blistering
Here daily throughout the year men
are at work overturning the great de
o posit with massive plows and scrapers,
getting it into great piles preliminary
to putting it through the refining proc- i
ess. The salt plows used to secure the
harvest are great four wheeled Imple
ments driven by steam and managed
by two men. The salt crust is thrown
up in parallel ridges; then laborers
with hoes work it to and fro in the
water, washing out the dirt prelim
inary to stacking it in mounds to be
taken to the mill.
L Salt springs in adjacent foothills are
constantly contributing to the deposit,
and so heavily laden are they with al
most pure salt that the plow has hardly
passed on before a new crust has
formed in the furrow left. This fact
. renders it unnecessary to operate more
than a small portion of the vast de
As may be supposed, work in these
fields is performed under the most try
- Ing conditions. No white man can
r stand the intense heat, and for this
reason the work is done wholly by
) Japanese and by Coahuila Indians. Of
these the Indians are by far the better
adapted to the work, the Japanese per
forming only one portion, sewing the
sacks in which the salt Is shipped. The
s atmosphere, laden as it is with parti
cles of salt, gives rise to a painful
thirst, and the only available drinking
water comes from a single welL It is
warm and ill tasting.
Beautiful mirages frequently appear
above the great salt field in the day
time, sky pictures of magnificent cities
and flower dotted, tree shaded fields.
I The moonlight, too, produces won
drously beautiful effects upon the
t great field of gleaming salt. For sev
eral weeks in the year the thermome
0 ter on the salt field averages 140 de
grees, and the reflection of the sun
produces a glare like that from a fur
nace. The deposits vary in thickness
from ten to twenty Inches and form
a solid crust over the great marsh. It

Few persons have any idea of the
prodigious quantity of lava and hot
ashes which a volcano in a state of
eruption can vomit in a few hours.
The matter which was discharged in
1G0 from Mount Etna and which
threatened to overwhelm Catania forms
a mass the extent of which has been
estimated as being not less than 1,000,
000,000 cubic yards.
From the immense crater of Kilauea,
in Hawaii, there was vomited in 1840
during a single eruption a mass of lava
equivalent to fifty times the volume of
earth which it was necessary to remove
in order to form the Suez canal.
In 1873 the Skaptar-Jokull, one of the
most redoubtable volcanoes in Iceland,
sent forth two rivers of fire, one of
which ran along a valley for eighty
miles, its depth along the entire dis
tance being thirty yards. Finally, it Is

and ashes which were discharged in

In the ice chest of a Germantown

squirms and cries out beforf the shock,
and then in a moment he Is well, his
nose stops bleeding. A physician said
that the cold key remedy for the hem
