WELLS, City Clerk. WHITE HOUSE COURTESY. The Way Presidejr.t Polk Threw Down the Barriers. If any president of modern times were to exhibit the otlicial indecency that John Adams exhibited when Jef ferson became president he would be denounced by every reputable newspa per and intelligent citizen of the land. It: was then. as it is now. the accepted duty of the retiring president to re ceive the incoming pre.i~ent at the White House and aeomip:any him to the inauguration ceremonies, but the last official act of Adams as president was the nomination of a member of what were called "midnight judges" the night before the inauguration of Jefferson. and during the night he and his family withdrew from the White House. leaving none but the servants to receive the incoming presi dent, writes Alexander I. McClure in the Clrcle. It 'was President Polk who first had the c-ourage to disregard the political passi-.'ns of the times by inviting Hen ry C-:sy, who had been his competitor. to dine with him and Mrs. Polk in the Wh, House. It was near the close of *e Polk administration, during which Clay had been a senator most of the time, and it shocked the Demo cratic sentiment of the time when It was announced that Clay had dined with 'President Polk. not on a state oc casion, but had been welcomed at. the family dinner as a friend. Clay 'was the soul of chtvalry, and Polk was a man of unblemished character and high attainments, and his example of courtesy to Clay has never since been broken.

The swift-, strong, healthy creature Is as weak and helpless as a babe."-New Orleans Times'Democrat England's Day. April 23 Is a memorable day in Eng lish history. To begin with, It is the day dedicated to the patron saint of England. St George. It was through the crusaders that St George was thus selected. He was born in Cappa docio. and later his bravery against the Romnans became a military tradi tion; hence the regard for him on the part of the English warriors who en gaged In the crusades. On this day also Shakespeare is reported- to have been born and died. Later, in 1661, Charles II. was crowned king os April 23. Lastly. Wordsworth died on this momentous day.-Londonl Standard.

W. E. Brown & Co. DISEASE AND PAIN. The Theory That Suffering Is Mentz More Than Physical. A great deal of alleged physical 'ui fering is primarily mental. A grea many people have "fixed ideas" of dis ease, pain. debility, fatigue, dread,.in efficiency and unexpressible woes Much often than we realize these cal be transplanted without surgery o medication. I do not mean that the: are not real sufferings. They are a real as the grave, but they are no grounded In physical infirmity, ani they are not to be cured with physics The mind becomes possessed of a con viction that a certain part of the bod: is infirm and imputes pain to that par in spite of all the medicine in the world Hundreds of people refuse to get wel after the physician has cured them. I is not his fault, and it is not thei fault. But they have simply had dis ease suggested to them until they can not think at all except upon that as sumption. It is an "auto suggestion, or it Is a family suggestion, and thi only way to remove it is by the vigor ous counter suggestion of another per son. The value of a "fixed idea" o health, as being only the removal of; fixed idea of disease where there wa no organic reason for it. will hardl: be disputed. Yet one cannot overem phasize the multitudes that there are of these invalids sitting in padded chair and making ready for the hearse whose trouble is primarily mental, and hov many there are, again, who have i slight organic infirmity and have in creased its effects a thousandfold b: what we may call "household sugges tion." - Max Eastman in Atlantis Monthly. Rev. I. W. Williams Testifies. Rev. I. W. Williams, Huntingtor W.

W. E. Brown & Co. AN INSECT TRAGEDY. The Nest the Mother Butterfly Build For Her Young. There is something really pathetic ii the way a mother butterfly builds nest for her children. In the firs place, the little home where the egg are deposited represents a great des of sacrifice, for it is lined with severs layers of down plucked from the moth er's own soft body. The eggs havin been laid carefully upon this luxurious pretty couch, are protected by a2 equally pretty coverlet made of the same material. These butterfly bedclothes are oftei arranged with an intricacy that is quits curious and perplexing. Sometimes bed is made so that each separate deli cate hair stands upright, thus giving the entire nest the appearance of a lit te brush of downy fur. Then agai> the eggs are laid spirally round-'a tin: branch, and, as the covering follow their course, the effect resembles th bushy tail of a for, only the nest I more beautiful than the brush of th finst fox that ever roamed over coux try. The building of this downy nest is th latest earthly -labor of the mother but terfly, for by the time it is complete her own delicate body is demnuded of it natural covering and there is nothin left for her to do~ but die, a sacrific which she promptly and heroicall: makes in the interest of the comin, butterfly generation. -It Can't Be Beat.
