One of the most remarkable eases of a cold. deep-seated on the lungs, caus ing pneumonia,is that of Mrs. Gertrude E. Fenner, Marion, Ind., who was en tirely cured by the use of One Minute Cough Ciare. She says: "The coughing and straining so weakened me that I ran down in weight from 148 to 92 pounds. I tried a number of remedies to no avail until I used One Minute Cough Cure. Four bottles of this won derful remedy cured me entirely of the cough. strengthened my lungs and re stored me to my normal weight. health and strength." Sold by The R. B. Lor yea Drug Store.

Superstition of the Unlucky Thirteen When King Arthur founded the fa mous round table he requested Merlin, the enchanter, to arrange the seats. Merlin arranged one set of seats to rep resent the apostles. Twelve were for the faithful adherents of Jesus Christ And the thirteenth for the traitor Judas. The first were never occupied save by knights distinguished for their achieve ments, and when a death occurred among them the seat remained vacant until a knight surpassing him in heroic and warlike attainments should be con sidered worthy to fill the place. If an unworthy knight sought the chair he was repelled by some magic power. The thirteenth seat was never occu pied but once. The story goes that a haughty and insolent Saracen knight sat down upon It and was Immediately swallowed up by the earth. Ever after it was known as the "perilous seat," and, brave as the celebrated knights of the round table are said to have been, not one ever had the courage to sit on the thirteenth chair, and the supersti tion against it still survives. Watch a Horse's Ears When Driving. Whether you drive a single horse or a teem the principles are the same, but In driving a pair see to it that each horse does his share of the work and no more. A pair of horses, moreover, unless well driven are sure to get In the habit of wandering over the road. To drive well you must keep your eye and your mind on the horse. Watch his ears. They will be pricked forward when he is about to shy, droop when le is tired, fly back just before he "breaks" (Into a gallop) and before he kicks. Before kicking, too, a horse usually tucks In his tail and hunches his back a little. When you observe any of these Indications, speak to him sharply and pull up his head. Gypsiefl and Death. The custom of placing the property of the dead In their graves has always been followed by the true Romany gypsies. It is due to some old tradition of ill luck attending the possession of an article whose former owner is gone, and much valuable property Is buried in this belief. There Is also a senti ment among gypsies against the pos session of anything that has belonged to a dead person, because It serves to remind the living of the departed and inspire to. them a dread of death. The custom of burying their property -with gypsy dead dates from the earliest his tory of the Romany tribes. First Test of the Air Pump. The first public test of the air pump was in 1654 by Its inventor, Otto von Guericke, in the presence of Emperor Ferdinand of Germany. Guericke ap plied the carefully groured edges of metatic hemispheres, two feet in di ameter, to each other. After exhaust ing the air by his apparatus he at tached fifteen horses to each hem isphere. In vain did they attempt to separate them because of the enor mous pressure of the atmosphere. The experiment was a great success. An Exaggerated Report.

Toryea Prop. THE ATHLE-rE'S HEART. Zn the Rowing Man It 1, Strong and Well DeveloDed. A prominent member of the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania Med ical school has made a study of the heart action of athletes. H has ex amined a large number of men In ath letics, especially rowing men, and he has come to the conclusion that no man in perfect health who has been proper ly trained is injured by rowing, but that, on the contrary, his heart is so strengthened that, with a moderate amount of exercise after he has finish ed his rowing career, there is no rea son, so far as the heart and lungs are concerned, that he should not live to a very old age. "The heart," said be, "is both a very delicate and a very strong organ-that is, if it is well developed It will stand an enormous amount of strain without any permanent injury, but if it is not well developed it is very easily weak ened. Violent exercise, like rowing, places a great deal of strain on the heart because when the body is being exerted it requires so much more pres sure to force the blood through the body. Like any other muscle that is worked, the heart under the added la bor becomes larger, and most athletes have extra large hearts, just as they also have larger muscles throughout the body. "If the strain is put upon the heart suddenly it dilates-it becomes larger, but not more muscular-and that is the danger in athletics. If a man exe:rcises gradually then his heart also Increases in size gradually because the muscles become larger, and this is a perfectly normal condition. It simply means that the athlete has a stronger heart than the average and can cope with the extra strain that is put upon it. A man needs a larger heart to row a race, and If gradual exercise has so provided him with one then he can safely undergo the most severe tests. "It is the same way with the lungs, and they izlust be developed gradually until they can undertake the extra work. A man with lis heart and lungs well developed is in no danger, no mat ter how hard the race. He may com pletely keel over at the end of the race, but it will likely be from sheer exhaus tion, and his heart is so strong that the effect is not at all injurious. He will be as good as ever In a few moments." --Philadelphia Record. J APHOR}SMS. The heart gets weary, but never gets old.-Shenstone. The only way to have a friend is to be one.-Emerson.

After dinner speaking Is an art,'and, like many other arts, Ita excellence has much to do with the mood of the artist Some of the best of our after dinner speakers sometimes fall, but It is not often that failure results in the enrich ment of the world's store of epigram, as it did in the ease of Lord Elrskine many years ago. When Lord Erskine was made a member or that highly honorable body, the Fishmongers' Company of London, he made an after dinner speech on the occasion of his first appearance among them as a member. Upon his return he said to a friend: "I spoke ill today and stammered and hesitated in the opening." "You certainly floundered," was the reply, "but I thought you did so in compliment to the fishmongers." The Prattle of a Bright Child. At times It cannot be denied the ques tions of children become irksome, but who would wish a child to ask no ques tons? Julius Sturm tells in one of his pretty fairy tiles how a grandfather, driven into Impatience by the constant questionings of his grandchild, ex claimed, "I wish your tongue were out of joint!" But when unexpectedly his wish was fulfilled and the child became dumb how he joyfully exchanged one of the two years which an angel had prophesied he wvas yet to live for the privilege of hearing the little one's prat tle again!___ ____ Speechmaking.
