ALIVE BY OXYGEN Financier Suiters Relapse and Heart Becomes Involved. BUSTLE IN VILLAGE OF ARDEN Wizard’s Physician Declares the Pa tient Dined Imprudently and That Bad Turn Was Due to an Acute At tack of Indigestion—Messages From Mansion on the Hill by Every New York Train. E. H. Harriman rallied from a re lapse which for twenty-four hours had, it is said, caused his family and physi cians at his Arden, N. Y., home to be lieve that the end was near. Harri man was taken ill Sunday and became desperately sick before it waa possible to summon other than the immediate family to his bedside. He had eaten imprudently, it is said, and acute indigestion set in. On ac count of his low state of vitality, the heart was involved from the first. The patient continued to sink and he was pulled through finally only by the use of oxygen, which is kept in large quantities at Tower Hill for such emer gencies. The fact that Harriman had a seri ous relapse is not denied, even by Dr. W. G. Lyle, who accompanied him to Europe, and who has been with him constantly since he returned and sought seclusion and rest on the estate at Arden. To a reporter who made his way past the guards doing picket duty along all roads and pathways leading to Tower Hill, Dr. Lyle made the fol lowing written statement: “Mr. Harriman had a sharp attack of indigestion. Much better now.” This and no other o&lcial statement came from the Harriman home during the day. - It was impossible, however, to con ceal the facts, as the entire country side was aroused by the hurrying of vehicles to and from Arden. Early in the day all trains eastward bound stopped at Arden station to car ry messages to the city. A special from New York brought Dr. Walter B. James, who has not been seen to re turn. It was said by one of those attached to the household that he understood there was to be an operation of some nature as soon as Harriman’s strength is sufficient to stand it. Until Friday Harriman was holding his own, if not improving. Up to that lime he had spent every pleasant day on the veranda in a large rolling chair.

As four-fifths of the oil extracted from lavender is concealed in the bloom the harvest takes place just be fore the flower begins to fade at the end of August. The oil is distilled by means of steam, which is compelled to penetrate the closely packed lavender, afterward being drawn off in pipes that ruu through cold water, lu this manner the steam is reconverted into water, but the process of passing through the lavender has extracted the oil, which floats on the surface of the water as it runs into glass jars down below. These jars have sprouts in the center, thus enabling the water to run out while the oil collects above the level of the exit. in this the first stage the oil is of a brownish blue tint, and it now bas to be refined by passing once more tb ougb water. Thus all impurities are removed, and the oil runs out white, save for a very pale blue color similar to that observed in paraffin. Three pounds of oil will make thirty gallons of the perfume. The majority of ladies would be sur prised if they were informed that a bottle of lavender water contains but about a thimbleful of pure oil, for a larger proportion would not only ren der the water too strong for use, but would burn holes through the hand kerchief wherever the scent touched It. —London Standard. The Poor Bridegroom. “Even the English language empha sizes the insignificance of a man at his own wedding,” said the prospective bridegroom disconsolately. There isn’t an independent word to designate him. He is merely called the groom of the bride, as if he were just about on a level with the bridesmaids and a lit tle below the maid of honor. Best man, of course, means the bridegroom’s best man. but the phrase itself tends to exalt this individual at the expense of bis superior. “Then there's no adjective to de scribe what pertains to the male half of the affair. You can’t speak of the ‘bridegroomal’ trousers or necktie. On the other hand, ‘bridal’ applies not only to the possessions of the girl, but to what relates to both of them equally, like the trip and the bridal chamber. The very words ‘matrimony’ and ‘mat rimonial’ are from the feminine side only. ‘Patrimony* has nothing to do with the nuptials. It applies only to wealth and signifies that a man’s part in the affair is to get out and hustle for the cash.”—Philadelphia Ledger. How Standing Armies Originated. The earliest European standing army was that of Macedonia, established about 358 B. C. by Philip, father of Alexander the Great. It was the sec ond In the world’s history, having been preceded only by that of Sesotris Pha raoh of Egypt, who organized a mili tary caste about 1600 B. C. Of mod ern standing armies, that formed by the Turkish janizaries was first, being fully organized in 1362. It was a cen tury later that the standing army of France, the earliest io western Europe, was established by Charles VII. in the shape of “compagnies d'prdonnance,” numbering 9,000 men. Rivalry there upon compelled the nations to adopt similar means of defense. In Eng land a standing army proper was first established by Cromwell, but was dis banded under Charles 11., with the ex ception of a few regiments called the guards, or household brigade. This was the nucleus of England’s present army.

Coleridge's Imagination. From his early youth Coleridge lived |n a world of books and dreams, yet his favorite walk seems to have been the Strand, the last place in the world for a poet to lose himself in reverie. As he strolled down the street he im agined himself swimming the Helles pont, the feat of which other poets had written and which the poet Byron was to accomplish later. Once while the mind of Coleridge was thus far from the busy Strand he absently thrust his hands before him in the manner of one swimming. Suddenly one hand came in contact with a gen tleman's pocket. The gentleman, thinking to capture a thief, seized the band and exclaimed: “What! So young and so wicked!” He accused the poor, poetic boy of an attempt at pocket picking. With some fright and a few tears the boy explained, and we can imag ine that words did not fail him who was to become the most brilliant talk er of his age. The gentleman was de lighted with Coleridge’s imagination, which could turn the Strand into the Hellespont. The intelligence of the young Leander made the stranger in quire into Coleridge’s tastes, and when he found the boy liked books he open ed for him a subscription at the circu lating library in Cheapside.—Westmin ster Gazette. The Facetious Traveler. “How did you like Pittsburg?” “It soots me.” “Do you think Boston is a great city?” “It has bean.” “Did you find Philadelphia the place of sleep they say it is?” “Not for me.

It was there when I arrived.” “How were the mountains back of Denver?” “Rocky.” “How did they treat you in New Orleans?” “All the time.” “Well, I’m glad to see you’re back.” “How does it look 7* “How does what look?” “My back.

The Key of Death. The “key of death” Is apparently a large key which Is shown among the weapons at the arsenal at Venice. It was invented by Tibaldo. who, disap pointed in love, designed this instru ment for the destruction of his rival.

This needle is so very fine that the flesh closes over the wound immediate ly, leaving no ranrk, but the death of the victim is almost instantaneous. Strong Paper.

Sometimes he is “basted,” he “boils with rage,” is “baked” with heat and “burns” with love or Jeal ousy. He is often “cut up,” “devour ed” with a flame and “done brown.” We “dress” his jacket for him. Some times he is “eaten up” with care, and occasionally he is “fried.” We “cook” his “goose” for him, and often he makes a “goose” of himself. We make a “hash” of him, and sometimes he makes a hash of something else. He gets into “hot water” and sometimes into a “mess,” Is made into “mince meat” and Is often in a “pickle.” We are often asked to “toast” him, and he Is frequently put into a “stew” or is in a “stew,” no one knows why.
