Nature has provided the stomach
with certain natural fluids known as
the digestive juices, anp it is through
these juices that the food we eat is
acted upon in such a way as to produce
the rich, red blood that flows through
the viens of our body and thereby
makes us strong, healthy and robust
and it is the weakening of these diges
tive juices that destroyes health. It is
our own fault if we destroy our own
health, and yet it is so easy for any one
to put the stomach out of order. When
vau need to take something take it
promptly, but take something you
know is reliable-something like Kodol
For Dyspepsia and Indigestion. Kodol
is pleasant to take, it is reliable and is

The Message on His Watch.
Iii "Memories of Eight Parliaments"
Mr. Lucy, the author, tells a story
about Mr. Pyne, member for West Wa
terford, who, when under the crimes
act a warrant was issued for his arrest
in 1SS7. shut himself up in his Irish
home, Lisfarney castle, had the trench
es filled with water, the drawbridge
up, took in supplies by a window in
the battlements and thus lived for
months, while he poked fun at the po
licemen who were wandering about
below with the warrant in their pock
"The originality of Mr. Pyne's mind,"
continues Mr. Lucy, "was further indi
cated upon his watch. On its dial he
had roughly engraved 'Pay no rent.'
Whenever in troubled times any of his
neighbors came to him for advice as to
what they should do in the presence of
a demand for rent, Mr. Pyne solemnly
shook his head. 'I cannot.' he said,
'express my views on the subject, for
Mr. Balfour says they are illegal. But
I'll tell you what I'll do. I'll show you
what time of day It is,' and, holding
out his watch, the perturbed tenant
read upon it the admonitory legend,
'Pay no rent "
1Laws Against Beggars.
Begging was a capital offense in
England in the days of Henry VIII.,
when the laws were very severe
against beggars, and under a statute
passed in that reign any one caught
begging for the first time, being nei
ther aged nor infirm, was whipped at
the cart's tall. If caught a second
time his ear was slit or bored through
with a hot iron. If caught a third time !
he suffered death as a felon unless
some honest person' having ?10 in
goods or 40 shillings in land or some
householder approved by the justices
would take the offender into his serv
ice for two years, entering into a bond
of ?10. So the law of England remain
ed for sixty years. First enacted by
Henry VIII., it continued unrepealed
through the reigns of Edward and
Mary. Reconsidered under Elizabeth,
the same law was again formally pass
ed, the two legislative houses thereby
expressing their conviction that it was
better for a man not to live at all than
to live the life of a beggar.

"The chances are," he said, "that
this fellow will turn white from terror
when I split him. If he does his
value will go up 200 per cent"
The lapidary set his steel knife in
position. He prepared to strikeon thet
knife's back the momentous blow.
"Wish me luck," he said.
And the hammer fell, the amputated
tail dropped into the box underneath,
and, Io, the yellow diamond that had
been split was now quite white.
"The yellow taint," the cutter ex
plained, "was only in the tall. Yet
the taint was reflected all through the
stone, and this made it seem of a uni
form yellow throughout Now the
taint is gone, and our yellow diamond

Henri was paying his first visit to
London and was already wishing him
self home in gay Paree, for he knew
not a word of English. He had been
very unfortunate and had lost all his
luggage, a toothbrush. So he deter
mined to buy another. But how was
he to make his needs understood?
At last his luck turned, however,
and he espied a chemist's shop with a
notice outside. "Ici on Parle Francais."
In he went and told the assistant in
French what he wanted. But that as
sistant knew no language except Eng
lish, and another who came to help
him was just as far at sea.
But the proprietor was an intelligent

Swordsmen of the Sea.
The swordsmen of the sea are the
sawfisher, spearfishes, sailfishes, sword
fishes and the narwhal, with its spiral
ly twisted straight tusks. The saw
fishes inhabit the warmer seas, while
the narwhal is a creature of the arctic.
The tusk of the narwhal is hollow
nearly to the point and is spirally
grooved. It uses its tusk as a weapon
of defense and to plunge through the
ice to breathe, the narwhal being a
cetacean. Sometimes when a boat has
been caught in the ice great damage
has been inflicted by the inquisitive
ness or blundering of this great crea
ture, that sometimes reaches a length
of fifteen feet, with a tusk of from six
to ten feet in length. As a rule, how
ever, the narwhal uses its tusk for the
purpose of killing fish for food. In the
castle of Rosenberg the kings of Den
mark have long possessed a magnifi
cent throne made of tusks of this
Cetacean. These tusks are harder and
whiter than ivory.
Beavers Train Their Young.
Naturalists have placed the beaver a
long way down in the list of verte
brates, but it undoubtedly stands next
to man in the variety of occupations in
which it engages. All cats are hunt
ers, while foxes that are not thieves
may be included also among the Nim
rods. All canaries are prima donnas,
and monkeys make clever comedians,
but it is only the beaver parent that
educates its children to take up several
trades. In a single colony among them
you will find civil and marine engi
neers, woodchoppers, raftsmen, labor
ers. quarrymen2, miners, plasterers,
masons, carpenters hodcarriers and
fishermen. All be ,ars take contracts
for building dams, but when the work
is undertaken the task is so divided
that each member of the colony has its
own particular work to look after. In
this p-ay they make some wonderful
excavations and construct their dams
in at fncredibly short time.
Marry and Part For a Year.
Among the many peculiar customs
prevalent among the people of Central
America is that of parting for one year
after the marriage ceremony has been
solemnized. This custom has prevailed
among the farnos from time immemo
rial. There is no courtship allowed to
be carried on between the parties prior
to the wedding. When a man selects a
woman he obtains the consent of the
parents on both sides, and if this Is
given they are at once married. The
reason, however, for their not living
together as man and wife for one year
after marriage is in order to permit 01
the parties visiting and staying with
their respective friends in different
parts of the country, which is a cus
tomary thing and occupies the time
specifed. Ninety-nine out of a hundred
of these marriages turn out well. .

Had a Treat For His Wife.
Dr. George Harvey. a local veter

not long ago to minister to a horse

serious case, and the doctor saw that
the only way to save the horse would
be to insert a tube in its side and
allow the gas on its stomach to escape.
Just because he thought it would star

struck a match and lighted the gas at

Chinese Sun and Moon.
In China the sun and moon are
brother and sister. The moon is the
elder brother, who looks after his rath
er silly sister, the sun. This is exactly
the reverse of our legends, which make
the sun the day king and the gentle
moon lady of the night. One day in
China, so the legend runs, the sun
asked the moon if she couldn't go out
at night. The moon answered very
sternly: "No. You are a young lady,
and it would be improper for you to
go out after dark." Then the sun said.
"But the people keep looking at me
when I go out in the daytime." So the
moon 'told her to take the golden
needles that she wore In her hair and
stick them into the eyes of people
when they stared at her. This is the
reason why no one can look at the sun

"'Fine old Spanish emeralds" Is a
phrase which means something quite

the conquerors brought home great

formed an important part. In this
way the finest emeralds came into pos

The Glory of New York.
What other city is there of like size
which matches New York in position?
It is a seaside city; the salt water
laves its feet. As the traveler ap
proaches it he thinks of Venice rising
from the sea or is perhaps reminded of
ancient Tyre, which "stood out in the
sea as a hand -from a wrist" and of
which the houses were Impressively
tall. "Impressive" is not too Indulgent
a word for the skyscrapers of New
York-clean faced, simple, original and
audacious, they are characteristic of
the land and of the people. They are
not ugly concessions to utility, but a
rather grand adaptation of architec
ture to circumstances. The ancients,
harassed with dread of piracy, would
not have dared to build a city like New
York on the edge of a great harbor
open to the sea. It Is something which
the modern world alone could have
given us.--London Spectator.
