Neglected Colds Threaten Life. (Fromt' the ('hicgso ,Tribune.) " 'Don't trifle with a cold.' is ,rood advice for prudent men and women It may be vital in Mee case of a child. Proper food, good ventilation, and dry, w'arnm clothing, are the proper safeguards against colds. If they are maintained thro thechanegable weather of autumn, winter and spring, the chances of a surprise from ordinary colds will be slight. But the ordinary light cold will become severe if neg lected, and a well established ripe cold is to the germs of diphtheria what honey is to the bee. The greatest menace to child life at this season of the year is the neglected cold." Whether it is a child or adult, the cold slight or severe, the very best treatment that can be adopted is to give Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It is safe and sure. The great popu larity and immense sale of this pre paration has been attained by its re markable cures of this ailment. A cold never results in pneumonia when it is given. For sale by all druggists.

GORDON lHOTEL: Exoressina a rnor:v. Dr. Leopold Jaches of Cornell's ped Ical school recently returned from study of the use of the Rontgen rah abroad. Pausing in an account of his tour. Dr. Jaches said: "Abroad. as here at home, the groat public's knowledge of the rays con tinues rather vague. Investigators re ceive all manner of queer letters and requests. Thus I heard in Berlin of a man who wrote to a specialist: "'Dear Sir: I have had a bullet In my thorax for 11 years. I am too busy to come to Berlin, but hope you will come down here with your rays, ag my case should be worth your while. If you cannot come, send a packet of rays, with instructions as to use, etc.. and I will see if I cannot manage to work them myself.' "The specialist replied: ''Dear Sir: I am sorry that my engagements prevent my coming to see you, and. that I am out of rays just now. If you cannot come to Berlin yourself, send me your thorax by ex press and I will do the best I can with it.' " Man at His Best. At what age is a man at his best and most likely to achieve eis life work? The Rev. F. B. Meyer once put the age at 46. That seemed late to a critic, but Dr. Leonard Guthrie at the Royal College of Physicians supported this statement. He quoted Jastro's table dealing with specially precocious people, which showed that the average age at which great ar tists did their first work was 13.8; their first great work, 28; their great est work, 46.7; and that the average age at death was 60.1. For poets the figures in the same order were 15.;. 27.8, 43.9 and 61.6; for philosophers. 17.6, 32.1, 47.7 and 66.3. Here is comfort for those who think of mid dle life as flat prose. Her Revenge. On a crowded street car recently there were several stout men taking up more room than they should. A slip of a girl got on and the conductor called out "move up, please." They re luctantly moved about six inches and the girl squeezed In. A few minutes later a tremendously stout woman laden with parcels entered and the girl immediately offered her her seat, which she accepted. The selish men were lost to view ender 250 pounds of stoutness and the girl chuckled to herself% Illiteracy In New York. Dr. Andrew S. Draper, pmieuaslon. er of education In Ne w jork, says that Illiteracy is much more general In that state than in Germaay, France, Great Britain, Switzerland, Isandi navia or Japan. WOMAN'S LOVE. "You've been to good to me." she saM4 "You've simpiy been perfc'tion, And when you ask 3m' now to wed, How can I make objection? That you are all a man should be Can scarcely be disputed, And you are just the man for me, We're so exactly suited! "Your tastes are just the same as mini. I'm sure we'd never quarrel; You're destined in the world to shine You're learned, rich and moral: I'd be so proud to he the wife Of one so great and noted, And you, I know. would all your life Be loving and devoted. "Now, there's that wicked Charley Daub He's also come to woo me: He's gay and careless, wild and rash And half-indifferent to me; He swears he'll love me all my days Then gives me cause to doubt him, And thinks with all his wicked ways. I cannot live without him! "I'm sure he'd fill my life with wee. And prove a poor deft ndl r. While you would e'er be good, I know, And generous, true and tender; So when you tell your love to me. Why, there's no cause to parley, Except that-how absurd!-you see, I-that is-I love Charley!" MUST HAVE BEEN. Uncle-I've brought a nice book for you, Bobby. It's about a beautiful girl who slept and slept, and no one could wake her. Bobby-Was she a servant, uncle? Heavy Tips. "Yes," said the talkative barber, "ia recent years we barbers expect tips." "I'll give you three," sputtered the man in the chair, as he blew the lather out of his mouth. "You are very kind, sir."

"Honesty the Best Policy." They were interviewing the crafty manager of the "get rich quick" syn dicate. "But don't you believe that honesty pays'" asked the interviewer. "I certainly do," chuckled the man ager. "It pays us. For instance, as long as the young men and women who answer our advertisements keep up their agreement to send us $10 weekly we are that much better off." Chicago Daily News. Took Advantage. There is nothing in, this business of being patient," remarked the humble cow. "What is the trouble now?" queried the sheep.

While walking upon an unfrequent ed path I met an aged man who was carrying two lighted lanterns. Recog nizing him, I cried: "Ah, Diogenes, isn't it about time you gave up your search for an hon est man?" "Friend," answered he, "I am often tempted to desist; but you mistake the object of my quest; I found an honest man several centuries ago. I am hunting now for an absolutely truthful woman." And he passed on, weeping; for he had far to go.-Life. The Reason. The speaker was plainly excited. "Why in thunder!" he shouted, "did you misrepresent the points of that dog you sold me?
