Rabbi Gives Reasons Why Women

"which among the earliest civilized na

that female children, because of the

why today niau has not granted and

other women were endowed with the

questions pertaining to the govern

At Woodlawn road the four tracks

others were bo pinioned that they
could not be taken out for some time.
The cause of the wreck has not been

It you are walking along the street

for their sale was decided upon Friday

On Wednesday the committee re
ported a bill which was widely at vari
ance with the suggestions made in the
president's message on coal lands sent
to congress the same day. The com
mittee was unaware of the message
until after it had reported the bill, and
Representative Laeey, the chairman,
suggested a reconsideration.
The committee on Friday added a
leasing clause to the bill, but no
agreement could be reached on such a
general leasing plan as the president
desires. The bill as amended author
izes the president to lease any eoal
lands with a royalty of not more than
2 cents a ton and provides that the
lands may be withdrawn from entry
after they are leased, but not before.
The amount to be leased to any on
person is limited to 2560 acres.

"The liberal sentiment Is so general
that it will come to the front In spite
of all the government opposition.
"The conditions in Russia have not
Improved during the last year. Thirty
mir'ons of people In Russia are 'oday
practically upon the point of starva

It is likely that a million people will
die. It is my desire to appeal to tho
American people to help my distressed
country, but whatever money may fce
raised here, I don't want It to fall into
the hands ot the Russian government
officials. The American relief commit-
tees should have their own representa

not grant a constitutional form of gov

be a greater strike than that of 1900."

Cure by Cuticura.
"My baby was about nine months

her most, especially nights. They
would cause her to be broken In her
rest, and sometimes she would cry
until she was tired out. I had always
used Cuticura Soap myself, and had
heard of so many cures by the Cuti
cura Remedies that I thought I would
ive them a trial. The improvement
was noticeable in a few hours, and
before I had used one box of the Cu

and have never troubled her since. I
also used It to remove what Is known

it worked like a charm, as it
cleansed and healed the scalp at the

The Way You Look at It.
"Gaze upon that pure, beautiful eve

Its light shall shine! Swear, my love
bwear by Venus!" exclaimed a youth
in impassioned accents.
"How stupid you are!" answered the
Glrton girl. "That Is not Venus. The
right ascension of Venus this manth
is 15 hours, 9 minutes; her declination
Is 17 degrees, 25 minutes south, and

Ninety-Nine Year Leases.
Ninety-nine year leases are said to
have had their origin in England. In
Queen Elizabeth's time a law was
made prohibiting property owners
from renting their ground or buildings
for a longer period than 100 years,
and thereafter the 99 year lease be
came popular. At one time there was
a statute In the Illinois code by which
the length of a lease was limited, but
this later was declared unconstitu
tional. The Youthful Mind.
Among the answers to questions at
a recent school examination appeared
the following: "Gross ignorance Is
144 times as bad as Just ordinary
Ignorance." "Anchorite is an old
fashioned hermit sort of a fellow who
has anchored hlsself to one place."
"The liver is an infernal organ."
"Vacuum is nothing with the air
sucked out of it put up in a pickle
bottle it is very hard to get."
Somewhat Grewsome Humor.
A well-known city officer in Auld
Reekie was celebrated for his cun
ning and wit. His mother having died
In Edinburgh, he hired a hearse and
carried her to the family burying
place in the Highlands. He returned
with the hearse full of smuggled
whisky, and being teased about it by
friend, he said: "Oh, man, there is
no harm done! I only took way the
body and brought back the spirit."
The heavens themselves run contin
ually round; the world is never still;
the sun travels to the east and to the
west; the moon is ever changing in its
course; the stars and planets have
their constant motions; the air we
breathe Is continually agitated by the
wind, and the waters never cease to
ebb and flow doubtless for the pur
pose of their observation and to teach
us that we should ever be in action.
Smelling for a Living.
A new occupation has been devel

The Changes of Time.
The physical characteristics of the
English are altering rapidly says a
writer. The tall, graceful woman with
the finely shaped head, well chiseled
nose, kindly eyes, sweet smile, small
feet and hands, and light tread Is
almost extinct; she is being replaced

Prosy Talk After Dinner.
From New York comes a wall of
agony. It is the despairing cry of the
bored diner; the man who goes to a
banquet and has his entire evening
spoiled by the stupid speeches which
top off the feast. He even threatens
to forego this feeling; a terrible threat
for a metropoltte and an index of the
greatness of the evil and Us accom
Suicide Among Negroes.
The number of negroes committing
suicide is increasing rapidly each year,
ut before emancipation such thing
as a negro killing himself was almost
unheard of. Now they occur with
"Poodles and the Man."
At a tea party the conversation
turned first upon the poodles and then
upon men. and one of the ladles asked
deaf old Aunt Thekla. apropos of the
last subject, which she preferred, fair
or dark. "O." said the old lady, think
ing they were still on the poodles, "I
like them quite black; they don't get
dirty so soon."

No Good In Whining.
Whining Is a poor investment for a
yonng man to make. It never pays
dividends. The person who sits back
and complains because things aren't
different makes little progress. The
man who makes the best and the most
of his surroundings and keeps his fea
ture cheery Is the one who Is the most
likely to move up and to get ahead.
