Some women enjoy ironing the lighter pieces, so they in struct us to wash and starch everything that needs starching and iron the flat pieces, such as bed linen, towels and table linen. Under garments are fluffed in fresh, clean air in our new drying tumbler, which leaves them delightfully soft and smooth, ready for use. All you have to do is to iron the pieces you like to fuss with just a few minutes and your week's washing and ironing is done. You vill find this method much cheaper and better than doing the work at home if you will be fair vith yourself and count all the cost, such as soap, starch, blueing to say nothing of your time and possibly doctor's bills. One trial will convince you as it has thousands of others. . The Custom Laundry 6 Church Street Phone 222 HUGH AGNEW, Prop. Small Talk and Quick Talk a Female Sefialty, Says Linguist According to one of the chief living authorities on linguistic, Professor Jespersen of Copenhagen, the speech of women can be differentiated in several ways from that of men. Women, he notes, are quicker to understand, quicker to utter what is in their minds, and quicker to answer than men; they confine themselves, as a rule, to the more ordinary words in the language, and avoid the recondite and the neAV hut at the same time they are given to leaving their sentences unfinished and they are habitually voluble. The causes of this difference between the speech or the talk of the two seves lie far back in the occupational history of each; but great social changes are now in progress, which Professor Jespersen .thinks may modify present contrasts. One such change, among educated cir cles at least? is perhaps already observ able. In the political field Helen is no longer, as she used to be. on the walls watching the combat. She has taken up arms herself, and n consequence of Iter action is that conversation, as it was formally understood, seems to be in dan ger of becoming a lost art. Over tlic dinner-table the discussion tends to be more and more of things, politics, wiz ardries, and less of human character and human motives. There was a time when our fathers did not debate politics or the law with their womenfolk; nevertheless they listened attentively when their woinen frdk chose to talk of the men and man ners of the day. They understood that her detachment from the actual strug gle gave woman a position to which man could not aspire. She sjwtke. in a sense for the future; in another sense her praise or blame amounted to n re estimation of character in terms of values more enduring than political exi gency. It was this detachment of wo men which made small-talk both interes ting and considerable. No man of any importance could es cape its acid purge; blatancy or bombast withered quickly under it. The place hunter, the crafty fellow, the mere babbler soon found their level among the dames whose quick eyes discerned the man under the actor's cloak. Now if woman still, in her heart, discerns the man she does not give him away, for she is committed to a party, a policy, which is his party, his polic: Argument has taken the place of epigram; the brilliance, the sparkle are gone. The change may make it safer for pretenders than in the old days a rather ungallant conclusion prehaps. but one. it is to be hoped, of only tempory validity. London Times. weather. The game was caUed at the end of the seventh, with the score 7 to in favor of the locals, on account of the rain, but up to that time only three errors had been made by either teams, which is unusual considering the playing conditions. The Kids hit the ball practically as hard as the legionaires but the locals got hits when they meant runs. This, coupled with Donovan's wildness, cinched the game. Burke pitched a good game and was particularly effective with men on bases. Donovan had a peculiar form of delivery which was especially effective in holding men on bases. Yarker was there with the stick, get ting three singles in four times at bat. Kennedy was not far behind with a three base clout and a single to his credit in four times at the plate. Austin was at bat four times and was given a free ticket to first on bases on balls three times and got there on a two-base hit the other ttme. Methot featured the visitors' offen sive with two healthy two-base clouts. The locals started things in the second. Yarker singled and Kennedy tripled, bringing Yarker home. Vinton fanned and Spacks singled, scoring Kennedy. Wells flied out. P.nrke walked and Sparks was caught off third by a pretty throw by Donovan. In the third Austin's walk followed by a passed ball and Yarker's long single added one more to the total. In the fourth the locals got another when Sparks got on by an error and was brought home b.v stm-essive singles by Wells and I'urke. In the fifth the legionaires kept the ball rolling. Dunlevy was passed. Austin doubled, scoring Dunlevy. Yarker singled, bring ing in Austin, and Yarker scored when Lavigne dropped Kopy's throw to first The Kids were eating out of Rurke's hand until the sixth, when the first four Kids up hit safely, bringing in two runs with none out and two on. Burke then fanned Ketten. but hit Benoit. filling the sacks. Kopy fanned and Charest flied it, leaving three runners ' stranded on the sacks. In the seventh Pease singled and Donovan got on on an error. Methot flied out and Pease scored on the play which caught !novan off second. Ste vens flied out for the final out. Vinton fielded well' for the locals, while the other outfielders were not over worked with chances. Wells caught be hind the bat in veteran style, showing t teadv improvement over previous games.

Practically all Central and South American Indians (such as use poisoned arrows at alD use the same poison the r dried juice of a species of Strvchnos. Its physiological action is to paralyze the end-plates of motor nerves. Thus without affectinc the central nervous j system at all, it causes complete paral ysis of all muscles. Death is due to paralysis of heart and respiratory mus cles. Curare, as it is called., has no other action ; it does not affect con sciousness nor is it anesthetic. The im portant and interesting thing about curare, is that it is inert unless in troduced directly into the body-fluids. It can be swallowed even in large quan tities without ill effects, because it is broken up in the stomach by the di gestive process. Introduced into the blood stream however, by hypodermatic injection, or by the dart, knife or arrow- impregnated, with it, curare is highly poisonous. It aet. almost in stantly, paralyzing all muscles, so that its victim drops at once inert. Adven ture Magazine for August. Totals. Innings. Am. Legion. Kandy Kids.

Canoe installations will be popular this summer, particularly in the public parks, such as Belle Isle, at Detroit, where for years the evenings have been rich in the melodies from talking mach ines, says the Wireless Age. This year the radio set has taken its place beside the talking machine for canoe use. At Detroit especially this is true, for there the talking machine has been for years almost as essential in a canoe ns a paddle. Now the presence of a broad casting station right in the city makes it easy to receive hi Belle Isle Park, in the river nearby, with the crystal defectors, while thoe who have more elaborate sets, including a loud speaker, rival the phonograph.
