EFFECTS OF PROSPERITY. In the six years of the country's greatest prosperity, from 1897 to 1903, average prices of breads! nil's advanced 65 per cent., meats 23.1 per cent, dairy and garden products 50.1 per cent, and clothing 24.1. All these were prod ucts of the farmer and stockman who profited more than any other class of the community by these advances. The miner benefited 42.1 per cent by that advance in the average price of metals. The only decrease in the average prices of commodities in that period was in railway freight rates which decreased from .738 per ton mile in 1897 to .763 in 1903, a loss of 4.4 per cent.. The report of the In terstate Commerce Commission shows that the average increase in the pay of railroad employes in the period was a trifle above 8.5 per cent. Flogged Because of Their Beauty.

Could Not Shut Eyes to Sleep—Spent $100 on Doctors—Baby Grew Worse—Cured by Cuticura for $5. "A scab formed on my baby's face, spreading until it completely covered her from head to foot, followed by boils, having forty on her head at one time, and more on her body. Then her skin started to dry up and it be- came so bad she could not shut her eyes to sleep. One month's treatment with Cuticura Soap and Ointment made a complete cure. Doctors and medicines had cost over $100, with baby growing worse. Then we spent less than $5 for Cuticura and cured her. (Signed) Mrs. G. H. Tucker, Jr.. 335 Greenfield Ave. Milwaukee, Wis."

"Writers' wives are unappreciative as a rule of their husband's work, ' said a publisher. ''For instance, Mme. Zola never read a single one of the Rougon-Macquart series. She thought that Zola's books were wicked. "That, of course, is an extreme case. But Carlyle's wife did not think much o? the hectoring, whining Scot she had married. She and Fronde used to sit together and discuss Carlyle's faults in a low tone. She admired Car lyle's talent, but she thought it was overrated. The public of to-day ap pears to agree with her, for Carlyle, for a classic, sells miserably. "Dickens' wife didn't like Dickens' books. She could see no humor in them. That, was one of the reasons why she and Dickens lived apart. "Byron's wife disapproved of his poetry. She thought that for a lord to write poetry was a waste of time. She would constantly break into By ton's study and ask him to put his silly rhymes aside. "Once Byron had an admiring friend In the house and he Lurried this friend Into his sanctum and began to read 'Cain' out loud. While he was reading Lady Byron ran intojho room. " 'Oh,' she said. 'Oh, do 1 disturb you, Byron?' "'Yes,' replied the poet, and lie continued his reading, and his wife withdrew. "Writers' wives, as a rule, don't l.ke their husbands' work. I think they are jealous of it." President's Greeting to Old Friend. When the Washington's birthday exercises ai. the Philadelphia Acad emy of Music had closed President Roosevelt was leaving the stage at the side of Provost Harrison, fol lowed by the other distinguished guests with stately mien and solemn air, each profoundly impressed with the dignity of the occasion. The president suddenly espied Prof. Sam uel McCune Lindsay of the university, modestly ensconced behind one of the wings. Breaking away from the aston ished provost the president rushed up to the professor with the exclama tion: "Hello, old boy. By Jove, I'm glad to see you!" and gave him a Itandgrasp which made him wince with pain. He then returned to the s*de of the provost and the proces sion proceeded.

Female Weakness Is Usually Pelvic Catarrh. Pe=ru=na Cures Catarrh Wherever Located. Mrs. Lizzie Redding, 3134 B Clifton Place, St. Louis, Mo., writes: "I found after trying many different medicines to restore me to health, that Peruna was the only thing which could be depended upon. I began taking it when I was in a decline, induced by female weakness and overwrought nerves. I began to feel stronger during the first week I took Peruna and my health improved daily until now I am in perfect health and enjoy life as I never did before."—Lizzie Redding. wm mi £ 1 jj [Si if: i |I -.
