An English traveler who has
visited every nation in the world,
is authority for the statement
that one food is universal through
out all countries. “There is not
a part of the world,” he says,
“where you caunot get an egg.”
While in Western China, however,
he at first had some difficulty in
getting even eggs. The natives
could not understand him aud re
fused to recognize the pictures he
drew as pictures of eggs. “The
way I got out of the difficulty,”
he adds, “was that I squatted
down on my haunches, flapped
my winges aud cock-a-doodle
doo’d until the entire nation grasp

“Au excellent and never-failing
cure for nervous- headache,” says
an apostle of physical culture, “is
the simple act of walking back

you have any doubt about it.
Physicians say that it is probab

body brings about; a reflexion of
the brain, and thus drives away
the pain that when induced by
nervousness is the result of too
much going forward. The result
is always certain and generally
speedy. Ten minutes is the long
est I have ever found necessary.

There is a hoodoo in every
newspaper office. It hides be
hiud the cobwebs and gets in its
dastardly work. The story of how
the newspaper hoodoo was born
is told with hushed breath iu every
newspaper establishment. Those
who kuow say that when Herr
Gettenberg started the first news
paper, in Germany, a maiden lady
of advanced years persuaded
some irresponsible youth to marry
her. She left word at the news
paper office that the thing be
told the facts, including a state
ment about the bride’s age, looks,
and disposition, and she, being
mad with rage, sold her self to the
devil and was transformed into an
evil spirit. To this day her spirit
prowls around newspaper offices.

Men strive mightily, in early
manhood and in middle life, to
accumulate a competency for old
age. In this they do well, but
did it never occur to you that one
needs a competency of knowledge,
and a competency of faith, and a
competency of true philosophy in
old age, quite as much as a com
petency of monetary wealth?

they are to be yours in old age,
just as certainly as that a plethoric
