Paragraphs have been extensively published In the daliy papers dealing with the researches of M. Lolsel of Paris on the recurrence of poisonous principles in eggs. It teems that the yolk of the eggs of hens, ducks and tortoises contain a poison which, if Injected Into the veins or otherwise Inoculated Into the unlmal body, causes death from its effects on the nervous system. The white of the tor toise's egg alno contains a toxic sub Stance. Why eggs are not poisonous as or dinarily used or even when eaten raw may be explained on the ground that the action of digestion alters the coin position of the egg or at least modifies It so that 111 effects are avoided. In deed, It Is eany to show that certain foods at a particular stage of digestion are "poisons." It is the action of the l.ver on such foods which robs them of their power to do harm. --of genuine MONEY SAVING opportunities in the purching of the high est quality groceries at prices no higher than are paid for the ordinary and inferior grades.

A recent issue of the Orange Judd Farmer contains a good de scriptive story by Howard A. Powell of the transformation of the Panhandle country from a great cattle country, to one of prosperous farms and deversified ranches. In part he says: The settling of no part of the great west has created more marked alterations in a section than it is doing in the transforma tion of the Panhandle of Texas. A complete "change in the cattle industry of the entire Llano Esta cado or staked plains has taken place within the past few years. Conditions surrounding the cattle trade of that peerless grazing sec tion, extending over a great part of northwestern Texas and eastern New Mexico and covering an area greater than several of the eastern states, have shifted marvelously during the past few seasons. When the Spaniards and French first struck into the country in the 16th century they little thought what an important part it would play in feeding with beef in years to come, the then unborn United States., And more wonderful still, the old rancher of the early '80's little dreamed that the entire com plexion of the cattle situation of the Panhandle would be so com pletely rearranged within his life time. Recently I visited several important cattle shipping stations of the Panhandle in company with that ever genial southwesterner, William Penn Anderson (Pecos Bill), who knows the staked plains as thoroughly as John Wesley did his Bible, and moreover, is ac quainted with nine-tenths of the ranchmen. PART PLAYED BY THE SMALL RANCHER, "Theevolutionof the Panhandle," said Mr. Anderson, "is due to var ious causes, and the prominent fea ture of it all is the important part played by the 'nester' or four-section man. Until the big outfits began to break up a portion of their land 8 two or three years ago, and permitted the settler with modest means to come into the country, the cattle situation in the Pan handle could be easily followed by anyone conversant with former conditions. Within the past few seasons, however, changes have come so rapidly that the old-timers are almost bewildered. Lands that in 1901 and 10C2 Could be bought for $1 an acre are now selling at $10. The future of the Llano Es tacado is now in the hands of the small ranchmen or farmer, for as long as land values keep increas ing, the big outfits will And it to their profit to cut up their immense pastures into farms. "While the days of the great ranches are numbered, it must bs understood that the Panhandle is V Dan K. Ansi.ky, Secretary last week. Bad weather Men Past Sixty in Danger. More than half the men over sixty years of age suffer from kid ney and bladder disorders, usually enlargement of prostate gland. This is both painful and dangerous, and Foley's Kidney Cure should be taken at the first sign of danger, as it corrects irregularities and has cured many old men of this disease. Mr. Rodney Burnett, Rock Port, Mo., writes: "I suffered with en larged prostate gland and kidney trouble for years and after taking two bottles of Foley's Kidney Cure I feel better than I have for twenty years although I am now 91 years old." Colding Drug Co. 10-lm not going out of the cattle business. In fact, I believe there are fully as many cattle on the plains today as there were five or six years ago, when the big outfits were in full control. The new settlers find it to their interest to keep live stock and, as a rule, they aim to have cattle well bred. With land prices forging upward it is becoming a self-evident fact that the quality of the beef steers turned out from this section must improve. Scrubs cannot be raised on $5 to $ 1 0 land. "There is no place in the world where forage is so valuable as in Texas. No Kaffir corn grown on the Panhandle is worth less than $15 per acre. Last winter Kaffir corn sold up to $14 per ton, and when it is considered that some tracts of land give as high as four to five tons to the acre, it will be seen that the crop is pro Stable. For the past few seasons it is a rare occasion when Kaffir corn went below $5 per ton. Just as long as the Panhandle raises beef steers, the home demand for forage will be great. In fact, not near enough is grown now to supply the needs of local stockmen." Dissolution Notice. The firm of Z. Z. Savage & Co,, consisting of Z. Z. Savage and W. L.

College has been con ducting a series of experiments to determine the valueof thesubstance known as Nitro Culture, which is widely advertised as a revivifler for poor land. A very small package of this material is sold for $1.50. Recently the New York State Ex periment Station declared that a package of the so-called Nitro Culture was not worth ten cents. Profssor Ball is inclined to go still further. His carefully concucted experiments, covering a number of samples, go to prove that the "Nitro" being sold in Texas is abso lutely worthless. Farmers through out the State are being vitimized as truly as if they were investing in gold bricks. A bulletin containing Professor Ball's conclusions is now in press. This notice is sent out prior to the publication of the bulletin in order that the farmers of the State may be properly warned. CHINESE SOLDIERS DID WELL An Englishman's Testimony, Showing How Brave They Are. When Great Drituln look Wei-Hal-Wei on the coast of China, she pur sued her usual jiollcy and organized a company of native soldiers, with British officers In command, says Mary Porter Ganiewcll, In The Chau tauquan. When the allies met the Chinese Imperii 1 army lu hard-fought battles around Tientsin and finally stormed and took the city In the sum mer of 1900, preparatory to the march on Peking, the Chinese troops, officered by Rrltlsh gentlemen, fought shoulder to shoulder with the Brit ish. The fight over, one day Homo one talking carelessly made the usual claim that the Chinese are cowards, whereupon an officer, who had led that valiant band of British-uniform-ed Chinese, spoke for his men' with all the ardor of Itritish love of fair play. He said: "I hold that when men follow their leaders up n bullet-Bwept street, and right over the very barricades from which the bullets a;"-? louring, they are no cowards; and that Is what our Chinese troops in Iiritish uniform did."

The "Tale of Two Brothers," writ ten 3,200 years ago by the Theban scribe, Enn.ina, llhraiian of the pal ace to King Merenptnh, the supposed Pharaoh of the Kxodus, is the oldest work of fiction extant. The tale was written apparently for the entertainment of the crown prince, who subsequently reigned as Sell II. His name appears In two (.places on the manuscript probably the only sur viving autograph signatures of an Egyptian king. This piece of antluuo fiction, written on nineteen sheets of papyrus In a bold hieratic hand, was purchased In Itaiy by Mine. d'Orbluey, who sold It in 1857 to the authorities of the British museum, where it Is now known as the d'Orbluey papyrus. Other specimens of ancient Egyp tlun fiction have since come to light, which appear to prove t hut the N 1 1 f valley was not only the birthplace ol the arts and sclent oh, but was also th; cradle of romance.

There must be periods of relaxation moments when the mind and soul and body father force for continued activity. The thing one should guard against Is taking rest at the wrong moment. Herein lies most of the success of life resting at the right time. Great accomplishments have been given up because one wanted to take rest at the wrong minute. After a large duty Is done large relaxation should follow.

Fletcher's High Grade Candies Always Fresh. GIST BROTHERS, PHONE 157 "Esplanade" and "Boulevard." Doth "esplanade" and "boulevard" are military terms by origin. The original "boulevard" was a bulwark or horizontal part of the rampart and an "esplanade" was originally the glacis or slope of the counterscarp of a for tified place. A writer 200 years ago noted that the word boulevard was "now chiefly taken for the void space between the glacis of a citadel and the first houses of a town." Hence Its extension to other "void spaces" suitable for promenading. The old French "esplannde" was defined by Cotgrave as "a planing, leveling, even ing of ways," from I.atln "explanare," to smooth or flatten out, whence the English words "explain" and "expla nation." An Alarming Blunder. A young lady living in Paris recent ly visited her sister's family and left them In perfect health. The next day a letter arrived from the Clchat Hos pital announcing her death at that In stitution, and caused deep grief among her relatives, who thought she had met with a fatal accident. That even ing, however, the supposed deceased appeared at the house safe and sound. It appears that she had been under treatment at the hospital some time ago, and her name, through an error, was given to another patient, who subsequently died.
