For Uncle Sam's Money.
Washington, April 12.?Ami.
?atant Stcretary of the Treaenry
?Coolidgo has approved a plan for
systematizing designs for United
States notes and coin cartifioatee.
This onrriesinto effect a sobeme
of uniformity in portrait and gen
eral design for notes of the acme
-denomination of eaoh cluss The
plan adopted will embody the ideas
of those officials of the Treasury
Department, bankers, businessmen
and cnrrcnoy experts.
Itis believed that tbo new notes
?when put into circulation will be
weloomed by the bankers on so
count of their siraplioity and the
readiness with which the different
?denominations may be fixed in
mind At present there are 19
?different designs for United States
notes und coin certificates of vari
ous denominations, leading to con
fusion and uncertainty. Under
the new plan thero will be but 9.
For instance, there are now two
designs for fivo-dollar notes. The
silver certificate bears tho head of
an Indian ohief, while tho United
States note bears the portrait of
Andrew Jnokson, eecoiBpsnied by
a symbolical group of a frontiers
man and family. The ten-dollar
gold oertiCsata carries a portrait of
Miohael Hillegas, the first treasur
er of the United States. The sil
ver certificate of the same denom
ination oarries the portrait of
Thomas A. Hendriokt; the $10
greenback, a Buffalo. There is
equal variety in the other denom
By the new plan the possibility
of oonfueion will be reduced to a
?minimum and at the same time
the artistio quality of the notes
will be greatly enhanoed.
Under the plan adopted all olass
<8 of notes of eaoh denomination
will oarry the same portrait, and
no portreit will appear on the
?notes of more than one denomina
tion, nor will any portrait be used
whioh will not be immediately
reooguizabie. The $1 silver cer
tificate will oarry the portrait of
Washington; the ?2 silver oertifi.
oate the portrait of Jefferson.
Tho $5 note, whether silver cer
iifioate or greenbaok, will carry the
portrait of Lincoln; tbo ?10 gold
and silver certificates and United
States notes, that of Cleveland; the
^0 dollar, that of Jackson; tho
?$50, that of Grant; the $100, that
of Franklin; the $500, that of Sal

of Alexander Hamilton. The por

Woman Conceived the Idea.
In view of the fact that Gover
nor Glasscock baa issued a public
request that the second Sunday
in May?May 9?be generally
observed througbout the State as
Mother's Day, an idea for a simu
ltaneous observance in every part
of the world of the love and rev
erence which all men and women
owe to their mothers, it is of gen
eral interet to know that the idea
for the observance of such a day
originated in the mind of a West
Virginia woman.
The general idea of Mothers'
Day was conceived by Miss An
na Jarvis, of Philadelphia, who
formerly lived in Grafton, where
she tooght iu the public schools
for several years and where she
is well remembered. Miss Jarvis
is the daughter of Granville E.
Jarvis, who was well known in
that section ot the state.
The mother of Mis3 Jarvis died
about three years ago aud was
buried on the second Sunday
in May. Mrs Jarvis, prior to her
death, was very prominent in the
Sunday school work of Grafton
aud last year Mothers' Day was
generally observed in the church
es of Grafton.
The movement is to make the
day a holiday the whole world
can observe a3 one nation. In
many States the movement has
met with favor and the senti
ment behind.the idea has a long
grasp ou men and women. The
request issued by Governor
Glasscock is not the first ot its
kind, a similar request having
been made by the Governor of
South Dakota.
The white carnation is the flow
er to be worn on Mothers' Day
and everyone is asked to pro
I mote the aay by giving one to
someoue else to wear. The ob
ject of Mothers' Day has been
stated as follows:
To rccall the memories of the
mothers that are gone and
through loviDg words and loving
care to brighten the lives ot the
mothers that remain and 10 help
the children to a greater blessing
in honoring their father and their

mother's dying words, and the
promises made to mother by the
big boy that still mourns her, ar.d
to stop to think a little ot what
she was in her lite to the family.
Others wbo are blessed with
their i;ood mother still near them
may show their appreciation b\
some deed of gratitude and love;

Keeps Him Hustling.
"Heaven help as," says & Georgia
philosopher. "We're gefclng rid ot the
world, the flesh and the devil, and It's
the devil that keeps us hustling for
high water!"
Pearls in Australian Waters.
The pearl Is the best known of Aus
tralian Kerns, ar.d for many years
thousands of dollars' worth hare been
secured in Queensland. The oyster
fisheries ot Thursday Island havo
been the chief source of supply, but
pearls are found all along the* Queens
land coast.
Cupid's Opportunity.
The lights went out in the Dudley
street terminal the other night about
2ve o'clock, and everybody evidently
kissed his best girl, for the air was
full of screams of delight and dellcato
remonstrances.?Boston Record.

Tezching the Royal Salute.
I Crossing the deck of the Kaiser WI1
: helm II. royal yacht with a largo mug
of beer In his hand, one of the sailors
\ was startled by the suddeu appearance
' of his royal master. He made a most
clumsy attempt to salute with his free
hand, while his anxiety to prevent the
beer spilling amused his majesty,
i "Look here." said tlie latter, "you
: didn't do that right. Let me show you
j how It ought to be done." Telling thu
man to fancy that he was the em
' peror. who was to be saluted, the kai
l scr took the mug and retreated a few
paces. Then, coming forward again,
stopping opposite to the sailor, he held
, the mug to his lips, drained it. put It
! down on the deck and gave the salute
' with military precision. "That's the
i way to do it." be remarked to the as
> tonished seaman. "Now go down
stairs and tell them to fill the mug up
1 ngaiu and give you one for yourself,
j Say It was I who drank it."
Brain and Muscle.

? of "From Their Point of View." more
, men are tramps and more women are
i miserable housewives if married or
i underpaid slaves if single because
they cannot or will not use their brain

Old Laws.
There still exists in London a bylaw
which forbids a cask of beer to be un
loaded between certain hours, but no
mention Is made of casks containing
any other liquor.
Lucerne has on Its statute books a
law which is not enforced. It prohib

Into golf. Perhaps the no-t notable
case on record is that of Jamie An

drive when a little girl standing
among the spectators remarked that
he bad unconsciously placed it just in
front of the proper line. Although
nobody else had noticed the fact this
proved on examination by the referee
to be correct Thereupon Anderson
teed his ball again In a fresh position
well behind the line and made a drive
which landed him ia the hole and
eventually enabled him tc win the
match. If, however, he had played it
from the original spot he would have
been penalized a stroke and have lost

All the blood in the body passes
through the kidneys onoe every
three minutes. The kidneys filter
th3 blood. They work night and
day. When healthy they remove
about 500 grains of impure matter
daily, when unhealthy some part
of ibis impure matter is left in the
blood. This brings on many dis
