a ‘dot. At Minneapolis, Minn., a
y large proportion of the young
nen and girls wenr glasses, and at
ton a proportion almost as large.
Here no young women or girls wear
glasses. No doubt, their eyes do not
need the glasses, and, besides, these
Cuban sirens and enchantresses know
too well the witchery of those eyes to
be willing to shut them off from the
world with glasses.
The streets of Havana are nearly
all very narrow.
Obispo and O’Reilly-, the principal
business streets, are parallel, and next
to each other. They are both so nar
row, not more than 20 feet wide In
cluding the narrow sidewalk on each
side, that carriages and vehicles must
go but one way on each, passing down
the one and up the other, like an end
less chain, going from Central park on
one and back on the other. The same
thing is true of most of the other
streets, but the people are so kind,
polite and obliging, that not much
friction results In the t raffle. There
Is a wealth of fine, artistic merchan
dise in the stores and the people are
not afraid of bright colors.
In Havana there Is hardly any di
viding line between eating and drink
ing. A place to drink is a place to eat
also, and a place to eat is equally a
place to drink. All these places are
called cafes and restaurants. One of
the large ones has this sign out:
“Cafe Restaurant el Popular," which
In English would be "The Popular
Cafe and Restaurant.','
Another sign reads: “Gran Nectar
Habanero," which means “Grand place
for good cheer for the Havanes."
Fluids and solids are dispensed to
gether, and not separately. Nobody
unless It be some American or Eng
lishman. stands up at a bar and gulps
down fiery drinks.
Great numbers of seats and tables
are everywhere in their almost open
air way of doing all these things, and
the people, men, and to a considerable
extent women also.’sit at these tables,
have tea, coffee, wine, or what they
may wish, not much strong drink be
ing used. At the same time they have
rolls, bread, cake, or what they may
like to eat, the eating and drinking
going together.
In this way the drink, in connection
with the solids taken, and together
with the natural secretions and sol
vents of the stomach and the alimen
tary canal, undoubtedly constitutes a
food, and adds to the food value of the
solids taken.
It we were not so self-sufficient, we
could gain important lessons from the
Latin nations and from the Germans

Hotel Man Provides Carnations tor
Guests in Memory of His
Dead Daughter.
A traveling man carefully adjusted
a carnation in his lapel at a club din
ner a few nights ago in one of the
private dining-rooms at the Astor. “Do
you know” —he turned to his neighbor
-‘-"I never see a carnation without re
calling a bit of sentiment I found out
In Ohio. There Is a little hotel at
Ashtabula—the Stoll house—and as
each guest is seated for dinner the
waitress places a carnation before him
with the menu card. This being an
attention not expected by transients
at hotels in small cities, I inquired of
the girl If the occasion was one out
of the ordinary.
“ ‘No,’ she replied, ‘we give every
guest a carnation each day at dinner.’
“When she had gone for my order
an old salesman seated next confided
to me: ‘Years ago Mr. Stoll's life was
centered In a beautiful little daughter.
She took great pleasure In distribut
ing carnations to the boys of the road
who Sundayed here, at dinner. Death
took her away, and from that day to
this the carnations are a feature of
the excellent table not only Sundays,
but every day.’
“Somehow," and the diner caressed
the flower In his buttonhole, "I have
looked on a carnation with reverence
since then."
Women Will Fight for Ballot.
The latest part of the world to be
reported as making a commotion in
favor of giving women the ballot is
the British West Indies. In Jamaica
the other day the legislature killed
the bill enabling women to vote by the
slenderest of margins. Instead of be
ing discouraged the women of Jamaica
declare their willingness to fight a
hundred years or longer tor their
Little Girl’* Innocent U*e of Descrip
tive Slang Expression Amused
“I was going to Patchogue,” said •
woman at the Waldorf, “when 1 saw
sitting near by a little girl with her
mother, the mother evidently a for
eigner, the child born in this coun
try, both surrounded with bundles in
the foreign way. The child was six.
The conductor came along and the
child of six held out the tickets.
“ T want you to put us off at Pat
chogue, - she said, smiling up at him,
‘and help us with our bundles, please.
My mother's a greenhorn. She doesn't
know anything about traveling.’
“I watched her until the two ar
rived at their destination, and I think
I have never seen a more polite little
girl or a more seemingly dutiful daugh
ter. It was quite evident to my mind
that she meant no disrespect to her
mother by calling her by what would
seem to-tls to be an opprobrious epi-
She had merely adopted one ol
pw slang words as the very best ot
English.’’—New York Press.
Itching Torture Was Beyond Word*—
Slept Only from Sheer Exhaustion
—Relieved In 24 Hours and
Cured by Cuticura In a Month.
"I am seventy-seven years old, and
some years ago 1 was taken with ec
zema from head to foot. I was sick
for six months and what I suffered
tongue could not tell. I could not
sleep day or night because of that
dreadful itching; when I did sleep It
was from sheer exhaustion. I was
one mass of irritation; it was even in
my scalp. The doctor's medicine
seemed to make me worse and I was
almost out of my mind. I got a
set of the Cuticura Soap, Ointment and
Resolvent. I used them persistently
for twenty-four hours. That night I
slept like an infant, the first solid
night’s sleep I had had for six months.
In a month I was cured. W. Harrison
Smith, Mt. Kisco, N. Y., Feb. 3, 1908.”

There Is a very simple and interest
ing chemical test by which to detect
Impurity In paint materials. Thou
sands and thousands of people, all over
the country, are making this test. It
Is a sure way to safeguard against
the many adulterated white leads
which are on the market. Any one
can make the test—all that Is needed
is a simple little Instrument which
may be had free by writing National
Lead Company, 1902 Trinity Building,
New York, and asking for House
owner's Painting Outfit No. 49.
The outfit includes also a set ot color
schemes for exterior or interior paint
ing, or both, if you wish, and a book
ot specifications. No houseowner
should make any arrangements for
painting till he gets this outfit.
One can’t expect a satisfactory paint
ing job without pure white lead. There
Is a way to make sure you’re getting a
pure white lead—without testing It. See
that the keg bears National Lead Com
pany’s famous Dutch Boy Painter trade
mark, which is a positive guarantee of
purity. Your dealer probably has
this white lead. If not let National
Lead Company know.
