Abonl the Children,
The hallmark of good breeding is self
possession, and that should be learned
•arly in life. It can be taught to very
jroung children, but not by giving them a
free rein. A child is naturally composed—
circumstances and surroundings make
him awkward and self conscious. There
are homes without number where the
children are well bred and happy on an
Income that is pitiably small. They have
no luxuries, but that does not mean that
they may not have them in the future,
and surely no access of worldly wealth
would ever place them at a disadvantage.
The simple home life is as refined as you
could possibly wish It, and the children
are being fitted for any station the future
may have in store for them. I do not
Buppose that the parents expect to see a
sou in the presidential chair or a daugh
ter occupyiug the position of first lady
of the land, but they do expect honorable
positions are awaiting them if they
choose to work for them.

WHY IT SUCCEEDS.
Because It's for One Thing Only and
Danville is Learning This.
Nothing can be good for everything.
2 Doing one thing well brings success
Doan's Kidney Pills do one thing
only.
They're for sick kidneys.
They cure backache, e'ery kidney ill.
Here is Danville evidence to prove it.
Mr. John Lewis of Mill St.. sa>s:—"l
was not well for a long time. When
working, my back became so lame and
pained me and after getting home at
nights I could hardly straighten. Head
aches and weariness disinclined me for
everything and, in addition I was troub
led with indigestion. I read about
Doan's Kidney Pills and as my doctor's
medicines did me so little gix>d. I got
them and found the most satisfactory
results from their use. They are the
only remedy which ever gave me per
manent relief."

Poisoned By London Purple.
Three fine Jersey cows belonging to
J. 1). Lingle, bookbinder of Sunbury,
and kept on his farm near Rush
town, met their death in a very myster
ious manner Saturday last. The cattle
were turned out to graze by Mr. Persing
who has charge of the farm and were
soon after taken sick. It was discover
ed that some one maliciously or other
wise had thrown a quantity of London
Purple in the field, which the cows ate.
Veterinarian Jones of Sunbury was call
ed, but he was unable to do anything to
savfi the cattle I'hev died in great
agony. Mr. L'ingle sustains a loss oi
some S2OO by the death of the cows.
Enjoyable Recital.
A Pupils Recital was given at the
home of Miss Sue Miller, E. Market St.
on Thursday evening. Owing to the
stormy weather many of the young folks
were unable to attend. The prize for
best practice record was won by Miss
Marie Fetterman, the one for highest
average by Miss Stella Crumb. The pro
gram comprised the following: Vocal
solo, Miss Annie Jenkins; piano solos,
Misses Pearl Vastine, Maude Bennett,
Ethel Haring, Ethel Herrington, Marion
Carney, Edna Gearhart, Harriet Kase,
Bertha Clayton, Marie Fetterman and
Annie Reifsnyder.
In some of the Swiss valleys the in
habitants are all afflicted with goitre or
"thick neck.' Instead of regarding
this as a deformity they seem to think
it a natural feature of physical devel
opment, and tonrists passing through
the valleys are sometimes jeered by the
goitrous inhabitants, because they are
without this offensive swelling. Thus
a form of disease may become so com
mon that it is regarded as a natural and
necessary condition of life. It is so, to
<t large extent, with what are called
diseases of women. Every woman suf
fers more or less from irregularity, ul
ceration, debilitating drains, or female
weakness, and this suffering is so com
mon and so universal that many women
accept it as a condition natural and
necessary to their sex. But it is a con
dition as unnatural as it is unnecessary.
The use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription strengthens the delicate wom
anly organs and regulates the womanly
functions, so that woman is practically
delivered from the pain and misery
which eat up ten years of her life—be
tween the ages of fifteen and forty-five.
"Favorite Prescription" makes weak
women strong and sick women well.
Excellent Course of Entertainment.
Arrangements have just been complet
ed for next season's Y. M. C. A. enter
tainments. The popular Star Course

the lecturer, follows on Feb. 14th. The
course will close on Feb. 28, with a con
cert by the Mozart Club, a most excell

Without exception this is the best

Bladder troubles most always result from
a derangement of the kidneys and a cure is
obtained quickest by a proper treatment of
the kidneys. If you are feeling badly you
can make no mistake by taking Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney, liver and

It corrects inability to hold urine and scald
ing pain in passing it, and overcomes that
unpleasant necessity of being compelled to
go often during the day, and to get up many

A LONG JOURNEY.
U*n ■ Piece of Mall May Follow the
Addrruee.
"The United States 1« getting pretty
big iu a postal sense aB well as terri
torial," said a postoffiee inspector,
"and for 2 cents a piece of mail can
have a good run for the money. Sup
pose we putin a spare moment in see
ing what may be done for 2 cents,
though a copy of The Star carrying a
penny stamp goes as far as a letter.
"A reader of The Star writes from
Manila for a copy of the paper. It
would be sent him under the second
class mail matter rate of 1 cent a
pound, but, as the public understands
the regular newspaper rate of tour
ounces for 1 cent, we will take that as
a basis for our figuring.
"It is mailed iu Washington and
travels 3.250 miles to San Francisco
and thence approximately 0,000 miles
to Manila, stopping en route at Hono
lulu, which, by the way, is 2,089 miles
from San Francisco.- In the meantime
the subscriber has returned to the
United States to his home iu Eastport,
Me., having left directions at Manila
for the forwarding of his mail. The
paper is returned by the next steamer,
and indue time it travels back over
the same route, covering this time
about 9,500 miles to the most eastern
city In the United States.
"This particular subscriber happened
to be of a roving disposition, and be
fore the paper arrived at Eastport he
had skipped out for Cape Nome, Alaska.
He wished to keep in touch with
Washington affairs, however, so he
left another forwarding order with the
postmaster, and the paper faithfully
followed him to the goldlields, an addi
tional distance of 6,700 miles, making
a total Journey thus far of 25,450 miles.
"If the paper were tired at this stage
of the chase, the subscriber was not,
and when it reached Cape Nome there
was another forwarding order await
ing it, this time to Sitka, Alaska, a far
ther distance of 2,350 miles, as the
mall route is somewhat roundabout in
the arctic seas.
"If the pursuing paper had been a
UfimiTV, III? would litttr
'Foiled again!' scowled and bit his lip.
The subscriber had had enough of trav
el by this time and had started for
home; but, desiring to read this partic
ular number of The Star, he had left
still a further forwarding order, so the
paper, or, rather, what was left of it,

London'* Future Population.
What will the population of London
be In 1950? This is no mere question
of curiosity. It must shortly engage
parliament, for it is because the an
swers given to it are so divergent that
London's water supply question is so
complex. Each plan that is proposed
for insuring to Londoners enough wa
ter to drink and bathe In is based on a
1 calculation of London's probable popu
lation 50 years hence. Itoyal commis
sions and experts have put the figure
at anything from 15,000,000 to 50,000,-
000. Other authorities denounce these
conjectures as absurd, and an increase
to 12,000,000 is predicted as the more
likely Inflation. A city of that popula
tiou is sufficiently appalling to put one
In love with the still more sober esti
mate of Mr. Pryce Williams, who in a
paper read some years ago before the
Statistical society argued that a limit
is placed on all sublunary things and
that the breaking point in London's
growth will be reached when her chil
dren number B,ooo,ooo.—London Chron
icle.
MeKlnley'n Black Snlt.
A suit of clothes made of black wool
en cloth which has never been through
the dye tub is probably the most re
markable costume that President Mc-
Kinley has ever owned. That he can
wear it, as one of a very few men who
have enough of the wool to make a snlt
of clothes, Is due to the courtesy tit
George W. Peterson, who owns a Hock
of 70 black sheep, the only really black
flock in the country. Mr. Peterson has
also given Senator Piatt a quantity of
the same cloth. No dye of any sort
was used, and the wool is as pure in
color and texture as when it came from
the sheep's backs.
As this is the only known instance
In which black cloth has been made
without dyeing the wool, President Mc-
Kinley will be a marked man when he
appears in his priceless suit of clothes.
Mr. Peterson, an amateur stock breed
er, who has a farm at Austerlitz, N.
Y., raised his black sheep at great ex
pense and with much care.—Exchange.
Elephant Who Earnn IIIn Bonrd.
James Cahill of Honey's Point is the
Only person in West Virginia and prob
ably In the United States who has ID
regular use upon his farm an elephant
which is used for farm work. With
the swaying beast hitched up to a plow
he can turn more ground than any
of his neighbors with a team of horses,
and when it comes to hauling logs the
elephant will walk away with ease
With logs which the best teams of his
neighbors cannot move.
The elephant eats little more than a
horse and does many times the work
of one, is gentle and docile and causes
little trouble, and Mr. Cahill is more
than pleased with his experiment. Mr.
Cahill bought the elephant from a
stranded circus proprietor.—Baltimore

ITEMS OF INTEREST.
More than a million people are treat
ed in the hospitals of London each
year.
Forty-eight thousand Turks have
been exiled during the last 11 years.
This is nearly double Russia's record.
In the last 25 years the whale fish
eries have fallen off from 200,U00 to
tso.Ooo barrels of oil a year and of
whalebone from 10,000,000 pounds to
400,1.100 pounds.
The Jefferson Davis house in Mont
gomery is to be bought by the Alaba
ma legislature and, like that iu Ricb
mond, will be used as a museum of
Confederate relics.
Canadians have ever resented Rud
yard Kipling's allusion to the Domin
ion as "Our Lady of the Snows." Hold- j
win Smith has now placated them by j
calling it"this land of sunshine."
It is estimated that Munich restau- j
rants cheat the public annually out of
$200,000 by selling foam in place of !
beer. The tine for not filling a glass to j
the limit is $125 plus two weeks' im- j
prisonment, but complaint is seldom ■
made.
One of the probable reforms under
the new regime in England will be the |
serving of luncheon at the palace to !
ladies attending drawing rooms. Hith
erto a sandwich eaten in a carriage
under the eyes of a curious crowd has
been the only refreshment obtainable
at the most desirable but most tedious
of functions.
When a raid is made upon a gam
bling house in Kansas, the furniture
seized must under the law be tried in
court and convicted before being de
stroyed, Just as though it were a hu
man being. A case of that sort was
tried at Fort Scott a few days ago,
when crap and poker tables, fine car
pets, chairs, etc., were taken to the
market place and burned.
THE GLASS OF FASHION.
Eolienne fabrics are very much worn.
They show a sort of corded stripe this
season both in straight and curved lines j
and also chine flowered designs.
A revival is promised of the old time j
silk mitts for summer and especially ;
with the elbow sleeves. One style of
mitt has applique flowers of lace in the
finest net.
Black velvet dotted over with gold !
beads, with a star decoration at Inter- j
vals, is one variation of dress trimming
which in the two inch width makes a
very pretty belt.
Bands of silk, satin or velvet on a
lace stock wired into position make one
of the popular stocks, which is supple
mented with loops and ends of the vel
vet ribbon in front, a lace butterfly bow
or a bow and soft ends of chiffon and
lace.
Casual hints and glimpses of the
spring millinery seem to reveal the
fact that in general hats are still to be
low and broad. And yet other reports
assure us that the high crown in the
directoire style will be one feature sug
gested by the long coats.
Ever since last autumn the French
fashion makers have tried to launch
their full skirts Into favor, but as yet
the American woman will have none of
them. The thin fabrics, together with
some very enticing models, may win
her fancy to this Btyle, however.
A pretty blue silk blouse is trimmed
with stitched bands of white cloth and
gold buttons. The sleeves, open the en
tire length on top, are strapped across
with the cloth bands ending in a point
at either side with a flat button, and
the undersleeves and vest of lace are
also strapped with cloth.—New York
Sun.

French Peasant Worker*.
The striking fact to the American mind
la the large predominance of the class of
women employed as farm laborers in
France —2,7oo,ooo women engaged iu
farm labor! The sight of a woman, gen
erally in combination with a dog, usurp
ing the place of the horse as motive pow
er, a frequent one in certain portions of
la belle France, causes all properly con
stituted American hair to stand on end
with horror, so repugnant is it to the
Anglo-Saxon idea of womankind.
This deeply rooted prejudice against
the employment of women iu rough out
of door work does not exist in France,
and the peasant, pure and simple, con
stitute9 one of the strongest types of
French womanhood, the backbone of thu
nation.
