TRIBUTE Grave of Thomas Clarke Luby in Hew York Bay Cemetery Dec orated With a Wreath. ADDRESS BY JOHN DEVOY I. R, B. Veterans and Irish American Volunteers Hold a Funeral Parade. MEMORIES OF OLD FENIAN DAYS Augustine E. Costello and O’Donovan Rossa Make Brief Speeches to a Numerous Gather ing. Around the grave of Thomas Clarke Luby, in New York Bay Cemetery, yes terday afternoon, members of Irish or ganizations in this State and New York gathered to place on it a wreath as a tribute to his memory and a token of affection for their old comrade in the cause of Irish independence. The ceremony was Intensely impressive, because of ito simplicity, and was wit nessed by a large number of people. Those who took part in It came from great distances, and having to march from Jersey City, it was late in the after noon when the sounds of the fifes and drums announced the arrival of the dele gation .headed by four companies of the Irish Volunteers. On the south side of Chapel avenue and midway between the Ocean avenue and Garfield avenue gates, was the mound on •which lay three palm leaves, tied with green ribbon, placed there by a member of the family. Under the command of Captain Crowley the Volunteers drew up in line on the north side of the grave. Forming a hollow square around it were: Mr. David J. Naughtin of the Irish Revo lutionary Brotherhood, under whose aus pices the ceremony was held; Mr. John Devoy. the well known patriot, of New York; Mr. Patrick 0'«Mara of this city, Mr. James Luby, Master Thomas Milieu Luby, Mr. Augustine E. Costello, Colonel Cavanaugh and Mr. Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa, of New York: Dr. John E. West, Emile A Huber, and William Burns, of this city; representatives of the Wolf Tone Club, Sarsfield Club. Knights of Tara. Sheares Club, all of this city; Em met Club of Bayonne, Effimet and Emer ald Clubs of Paterson and members of the “I. R. B.“ At a sign from Mr. Naughtin, who di rected the ceremony, two gentlemen clipped forward with a large wreath of American laurels tied with green, orange and white ribbons, the colors of the Irish Revolutionary Brotherhood, of which the late Mr. Luby was a member. This was reverently placed on the mound, together with a flag of the same colors. Captain Crowley then gave an order and the Volunteers marched in fours past the grave, the men parting their arms and the officers lowering their swords. Cap tain Thomas Nugent, of the Greenville precinct, with a platoon of police handled the crowds admirably and maintained per fect order. All suve the Volunteers removed their hats as Mr. Naughtin stepped -to the head of the grave and began:— “Comrades, we are met here to pay our respects to a man among men, and one of the truest, most unselfish patriots Ire land .has ever produced. His comrades, friends and fellow workers will tell you far better than I can of hi.** hopes and aspirations (for old Ireland, and I will now ask our old friend, his comrade of the 'I. R. B..’ to addreso you.” Mr. John Devoy. a distinguished figure in the Irish cause, turning to Mr. Luby, son of him who slept in the grave below, said in a volco trembling with emotion:— “Mr. Luby. comrades of the Irifrh Revo lutionary Brothers and friend.*?, I am sorry I am selected to pay tribute to this great man for I know I am unworthy. We are assembled to pay the last sad tribute to a man whom all honored and respected. He was loved and revered by the Irish race throughout the world. This he earned by a life of suffering for the cause of Irish independence. (Applause.) Thomaf? Clarke Luby came of that class •which “the British government would be too anxious to promote. Had he chosen to cast in hin lot with the enemies of his | country all honors would have opened to , him. But setting aside all other hopes 1 -- - i jCawyers ~ Desiring expedition, neat work and , , , accuracy.. in the printing of jCaw *ll}or/c Should use the ... prompt delivery and moderate ..•••• price service of the Jersey @ty ^ows ^ _____ he cast In his lot with a struggling people. (Applause.) “He was in the ‘48 movement with John Mitchell. Thomas* Devin Reilly and Smith j O'Brien.” continued Mr. Devoy, “and j after the failure of that movement to free I Ireland from England by armed force he. I went to Australia, returning after a time to take part in a forlorn hope. From then on to the early fifties he was asso ciated with James Stephens, and in Ire land, by voice and pen, helped tb keep the flame of nationality alive. He was a trusted counsellor of James Stephens in the Fenian movement. No man, with the exception of John O’Leary, ever by his pen so stirred up national feeling and re vived the hopes of the people, making them believe that Ireland was not a con torted province of England, and I hope you younger men will cherish that until Ireland takes her place among the na tions. (Applause.) England would have some believe that the discontent against its rule was on the part of the Catholics, but Tone, Emmet and Luby gave the lie to that. (Applause.) We are met here to honor a Protestant Irishman who stood up for Irish independence, and that is the be**! contradiction of the lie. (Cheers.) “'Most of us standing by his grave would have preferred to have the privilege of sending him. who lies here, to rest in that land for which he struggled during his life, but we submitted to the wishes of the family. We, however, hope that j Luby’s ashes will be taken up later and j deposited in the land he served so nobly ! and well. (Applause.) His life was spent i in that land he loved and his remains j should rest on Irish soil. (Applause.) I j voice the sentiments of the Irish race at j home and abroad when I say that I hope the family will at some time consent to j have these ashes transferred to Ireland, ! where his fellow workers in the Fenian movement sleep their last sleep. (Ap plause.) • ■ T ___L _1-_ „ t Clorlra Luby’s grave what I feel should be said about a man I loved and honored for forty years. I looked up to him for counsel ; and his kindness to me I will never forget. His life is an example worthy of imita tion by the rising generation. His was a life of long sacrifice and personal abro gation. The man who looks only for per sonal advancement may rise, but leaves no mark in history. It is the man who forgets himself, ’tis the men like Tone. Emmet and Luby that make history. If you young men will imitate them you will do more for the advance of your race than anything else. (Applause.) “My friends,” said Mr. Devoy, after a pause, “we pay tribute of honor and es teem to the noble woman who stood by his side, who rallied the forces while he was absent from us, and did more to add to the cause than any ten men could. Not alone did Thomas Clarke Luby earn the gratitude of the Irish people, but Mrs. Luby did equally so, and I hope when Ire land is a free and independent nation, a grateful race will place a wreath on the place where Lu'by and his wife forever rest in an Irish grave, their memories hallowed by those living between the four 5»eas of Ireland.” Mr. Devoy closed here and slowly knelt at the grave. Everyone did the same and remained in silence for a few minutes. Mr. James Luby thanked the delegation for the tribute paid to his father’s mem ory on behalf of his mother, his brother, now serving in the Philippines, his sister and himsalf. He assured the Brother hood that the same principles which ac tuated his father during his career re mained with him until death. His father, ho ssiid, was a compulsory exile, not dis loyal to the country of his adoption, but having only room in his heart for one country and that he thought was the most beautiful place on earth, and his favorite prayer, his shibboleth, was “God save Ireland.” Mr. J. O'Donovan Rossa added his tribute to the memory of Mr. Luby. He had, he said, known him for many years and reveTed his memory. All Mr. Luby’s endeavors, he said, were for Irish free dom, and his name and memory would ever be green in Irish hearts. He aided in the work against tyranny. Soon, said the speaker, he hoped that the ashes of Thomas Clarke Luby would rest with his forefathers. Mr. Augustine E. Costello was the last speaker. "I came,” he said in part, “to know Mr. Luby while he was struggling for Ice land’s freedom. He was a simple, grand man. inspired with poetry and possessing great force of character. He was a man of talent and one of the great galaxy of Irish genius, whose deeds surprised the world. He has taught us a lesson which we shall never forget. Men of the I. R. B. it is well that you were here today. Never have you paid tribute to a gallant knight w’hose ashes should be- more hon ored than those of Thomas Clarke Luby. His memory will live when multi-million aire* are dead and are forgotten. He was a gifted historian, poet and journalist, and may God give us the light of revela tion to inspire the hearts of men to liberty as he did.” When Mr. Costello finished the drum mer of the Irish Volunteers stood over the grave and at the command of Captain Crowley sounded the death roll. Prof. Mahoney, a well known musician, sang with exquisite*feeling a dirge. The Volun teers fell in line, saluted once more the grave and marched away. I 1,000 PLAY EUCHRE Holy Name Society Gives Large Card Party In Horseshoe District. One of the largest euchres that has iaken place In the Horseshoe session in many ye»ars was held last Thursday even ing, at St. Michael’s Hall, Erie and Tenth street, under the auspices of the Holy Name Society connected with St. Mich ael’s Church. The spacious hall was tax * d to its capacity, and over two thousand players were present. The games were very spirited and over one thousand play ers took part in them. The gentlemen in charge were very active, and although handicapped by the large attendance they handled the large crowd excellently, and the euchre was one of the miost successful events that has ever taken place in the history of St. Michael's parish. The receipts will go towards the church and the Re. Father Sheppard, rector of St. Michael’s Church, was very much pleased with the success of the event. At the conclusion of the euchre the prize winners were announced by Mr. M. T. Connolly and Mr. M. F. Kalaher. TEACHERS AT WEST POINT Hudson County Instructors See Cadets Drill* Promptly at half-past nine this morn- j ing the iron steamboat Sirus left her dock foot of York street, with hundreds of chattering, lunch - beladen teachers aboard, out for their annual outing, for | this is the day in the merry month of May I which the Hudson teachers choose for their excursion—the day that is looked forwadr to throughout the year as the one fete day in school life, free from the care of children, and these teachers see to it that children, except once in a while the | very, very good little nieces and nephews, do not go along. The destination is West Point, where, after a baseball game between the toams of the West Point Cadets and Illinois College, the West Point boys gave a dress parade, much to the admiration of the en thusiastic teachers. f .,Ujt&Vy I'' -5 • ‘ The Home The Hartman Sanitarium, Columbus, Ohio. As is well known, Dr. Hartman is the president of the Hartman Sanitarium, an institution which has a department devoted exclusively to the treatment of female diseases. He is thus brought to see thousands of such cases every year, ^ —_ the most of THE GREATEST OF whom return AMERICA’S £*£*££d SANITARIUMS. by corre spondence. The principal remedy he relies upon in such cases is Pernna, which every woman should have, who has any affec tion of this kind. In view of the great multitude of women suffering from some kind ot female disease, and yet unable to flnd any cure, Dr. Hartman, the renowned gynaecologist, has announced his wil lingness to direct the treatment of as many cases as may make application to him during the summer months with out charge. The treatment will be conducted by correspondence. The doctor will pre scribe all medicines, applications, hy gienic and dietary regulations neces sary to complete a cure. The medicines prescribed can be obtained at all drug stores. This offer will prevail during the summer months. Any woman can become a regular patient by sending a written statement of her age, condition of life, history and symptoms of her de rangements. All cases of female diseases, including menstrual irregularities, displacements, ulcerations, inflammations, discharges, irritation of the ovaries, tumors and dropsy of the abdomen, should apply at once and become registered as regular patients. All correspondence will be held strictly confidential. No testimo nials of cures will be given to the public except by the express wish of the patient. No one knows better than Dr. Hart man how much the women suffer with diseases peculiar to their sex. No one knows better than he does how many of them suffer with such diseases. Pa tiently, hopefully, wearily, and often silently, they eko out a miserable exist ence year after year. A woman confined to the house sev eral years with a chronic female de ________r a n g e m e n t DISEASES had finally PECULIAR TO THE g£VLi£ FEMALE SEX. cured. She had tried phy sician after physician, and remedy after remedy, without any permanent im provement. Her treatment had cost her husband, who was a poor man, hundreds of dollars. They had been obliged to deny themselves many comforts of life in order to get money enough to pay the physicians. Picking np the paper one day she hap pened to read an item which contained the news that Dr. Hartman would treat such cases free of charge by letter. She immediately wrote the doctor, describ ing her case, and giving him all her symptoms. She soon received a letter telling her exactly what to do and what medicines and appliances to get. She began the treatment (the principal rem edy being Peruna) at once, and in a few weeks was well and strong again and able to do her own work. Another woman who used Peruna without becoming one of Dr. Hartman’s regular pa tients had the following er perience. Miss Ida Green writes from Baldwinville, Ga.: “Peruna is wonderful and good, and a certain cure for female weakness. I have been ill and have been taking doctor’s medicine for several years, and found that none did me any good. “Every day It was a worry. I was always sick. I had come to the con clusion to givet up, and not use any more medicine. I was sick indeed for the past two years. Just belore I began to take Peruna / was very weak, be sides / was bilious and constipated. “ I had pains in my back and side and falling of the womb, with bearing down pains. “One day while reading my news paper, I came across an ad., read of the book for women entitled, “Health and Beauty,” and sent for it. Then I began to use Peruna. After using several bottles I am now thoroughly cured.”— MISS IDA GREEN. Mrs. Theresa Keller, of Fremont, Wash., writes: “Peruna not only cured me of female trouble but prevents me catching any cold, and as long as I have a bottle in the house my family needs no doctor.” —Mrs. Theresa Keller.

(Special to "The Jersey City News.") RIVERSIDE, May 31, 1902.—V. H. Lavigne, of this city, recently came into the possession of some property. While repairing the structure he discovered to his surprise a number of greenbacks sticking out of a hole, but to his dismay they fell into small pieces as soon as he touched them. Then Lavigne grew angry and lore the whole floor up. Lying in one corner beneath the floor were several large bundles of paper currency, but, as before, the minute his fingers came in contact with the alluring bills the bundles fell apart. At that moment a large rat ran from under cover and the mys tery was solved. Whoever had secreted the fortune had not taken into consider ation the presence of rate. The rodents, however, soon discovered the greenbacks and concluded that they would make very desirable nests. In the hope that his fortune may not all be gone, Lavigne has communicated with Sub-Treasurer Finney asking what steps to take toward having the mutilated notes redeemed. As the greenbacks are badly chewed it is probable that nothing can be done with them. The bills are in such a condition that it is impossible for Major Finney to determine whether they represent ten or ten thousand dol lars. He is doing his best, however, and Lavigne Is spending all his spare time in hoping. _ . WAR OF THE PHONOGRAPHS Twelve Strenuous Machines Declaim Daily Against a Spite Fence. (Special to “The Jersey City News.”) PASSAIC, May 31, 1902.—H. E. Patter son, an artist, living in the hill section of Passaic, has erected a spite fence on the line of his property adjoining that of M. Bourmann, an official in the Botany Mill, at that city. Patterson objects to Bourmann’s chil dren playing on the lawn in front of their home, because the noise annoyed him. Soon after this Bourmann’s children bought a talking machine. Patterson called In a policeman and attempted to have his neighbor arrested as a disor derly person for using the phonograph. Then he made other cdmplalnts, with the result that Bourmann bought a dozen talking machines and set them going all at the ope time. Patterson then built the spite fence fif teen feet high in order that Bourmann's view might be cut ofT. He says he will add ten feet more to it. Bourmann's children use the fence for a back stop for baseballs. Their view is not obstructed, while Patterson finds his own is not interfered with.. The neigh bors, who are all prominent, await de velopments. FICKLE LOVER Harry W. Heasley, thirty-two years old, formerly of Akron, Ohio, and Miss Ma tilda Schnee, twenty-two years old, of Kent. Ohio, who were arrested at No. £93 Monmouth street, on complaint of Heas ley's wife and Miss Schnee’s father, C. M. Schnee, accused of unlawfully living to gether, were yesterday discharged from custody. Mr. and Mrs. Heasley were reconciled and will continue to live in thta city. Miss Schnee was taken back home by her father. A. 0. H. MEETS Board of Erin Elects Ofibers , l at Annual Convention United Irish League Endorsed. Delegates to the fifty-fourth annual convention of the Board of Erin A. O. H. met yesterday afternoon at their headquarters, Seventeenth and Hender son streets. They came from New York, this State, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Illinois, Ohio, Maryland, Vermont, Georgia and Maine. Resolutions ^were passed condemning the United States government for send ing an ambassador to King Edward’s : coronation; expressing loyalty to the ; United Irish League and its efforts to gain freedom for the Irish people, and also condemning the Roosevelt adminis- : tration for permitting mules to be ship ped from this country for the use of the British in the South Africa war. National Delegate James Doherty, of ' New York, presided, having with him on the platform National Secretary Felix McKnight, of Pittsburgh, who acted us secretary, and National Treasurer John Cavanagh, of this city. Chairman Do herty made a stirring address endorsing | the United Irish League. He said he was glad to see that the clergy recog nized the Board of Erin as only true or der of Hibernians in this country. This resolution was then approved and it was an expression that the physical force party "had not the true interests of Ire j land at heart and were a detriment to the cause which they claimed to es- | pouse.” National Treasurer Cavanagh said j that there was a balance in the treas- : ury of $10,767.30. Mr. Doherty was re- ] elected National Delegate, and James O’Donnell, of Kings County, was elected National Secretary to succeed Mr. Me- j Knight. Treasurer Cavanagh was re- j elected to his office. The next eonven- ! tion will be held in Brooklyn on Decora- I tiou Day. JERSEY IMPROVEMENTS River end Harbor Bill to Improve j Kill Von Knll usd Passaic River ] (Special to “The Jersey City News.")

An unidentified man about thirty years old, committed suicide this morning short ly after 1 o’clock by jumping from the Pennsylvania Railroad ferryboat Cincin nati of the Cortlundt street line just as the boat was about to leave the New York slip. Engineer John Ryan made an heroic effort to save the man’s life, and succeeded in bringing him a boa rd alive after a fierce struggle in the water. The man was brought to this city, and died on the way to the City Hospital in an ambulance. No papers nor marks of any kind were found, so that his identity remains a mystery. There were few passengers on the boat that trip. The suicide was alone on the foreward deck. When the signal to ”go ahead” was given. Engineer Ryan was about to enter the engine room. He heard a splash, and disregarded the sig nal to start the machinery. Rushing to the rail he say the man struggling in the water, and stopping only long enough to shout the warning "man overboard,” he jumped into the river. In a twinkling Ryan had the man clasped under the arms. But the other was determined to die. He fought Ryan fiercely and beg ged to be allowed to die. The would-be suicide punched Ryan, but was no match for his rescuer, and soou iiecame exhaust ed. He swallowed a great quantity of water, however, and this was as much responsible for his helplessness as Ryan’s efforts. While the two were struggling the other members of the crew, attracted by Ryan's shouts, were on the rail and with boathooks made many efforts to rescue the pair. It was several minutes before they succeeded in catching the clothes of the men with the hooks. Both were hauled on deck, and immediately the crew be gan work on the unconscious man, Ryan going to the engine room ami starting the boat on its trip to this city. The man never regained consciousness. W hen the City Hospital ambulance arrived at the ferry he was removed. He died before he had gone more than a few blocks, and the body was taken to Speer's mor gue. The suicide was dressed in a black coat and vest, gray trousers, blue out ing shirt, black laced shoes and was about five feet ten inches tali. He weighed about 180 pounds.

Di\ Franklin gave some advice to the young ladies of hk» day, which their grand-daug'hters would do well to take to heart, says the Philadelphia “Make such soft speeches as you will, my dears*," he said, “but put them not down in ink.” 1 have ho -doubt he emphasized his meaning with a sly and whimsical smile, and made dear to thogte arch coquettes in powder'and brocade what I would Tike to impress on the tailored matinee girl, and that is this:,The practice of writing sentimental notes to men should hot be indulged in by gentlewomen under any circumstances. if course, this does not mean that girls should cease from burdening the mail j bags of Uncle Sam with tender mes?3ages , io their accepted lovers. Dr. Franklin may ! have harnessed the lightning, but he I could not do as much with the human heart: and as long as love lasts—and. please God. that, shall .be .until there Is* no more life-on1 this- star we call the earth—love’s language will be written, and the gray-clad postman will continue j to be envoy extraordinary to Cupid. Lovers* are seldom fluent enough to put in speech the things that they would say;‘ but the man, dumb with love, is always a poet w’hen he writes to her. And she covers page after page with sweet as surances that her could never speak. So love letters are among the sweetest privileges* of love: and I believe that they should be written with all the fervor and madness* and extravagance of the time, that in the after years they may be taken from their place and untied with their dried roses among them, and light, with their yellow' leaves, the hearts that have grown weary and cold, and fan into life a forgotten passion. i ao not oeutve inucn in me u»ve turn withholds trust. For where one is there should be the other. But the mustom, now widespread, of sending notes of compli ment and admiration to strange men, who by reason of some -whim of fate have been thrust into public notice, cannot be abolished too soon for the credit of the bonniest, most wholesome and merriest creature in the world, the American girl. It is said the popular hero or actor rarely takes sugar in his breakfast coffee because the letters heaped beside his plate bring a surfeit of sweets. If he is rew in the hero line he may be scornfully tolerant over the missives and light his pipe with them. But in the end he will be bored and disgusted, and whether they are opened at all or not will depend wholly on the curiosity of his servant. He does not want foolish girls to write to him. and he has never fallen in love with any one in that way. Even his vanity is not touched by the letters. For he is aware , the the murdered waiting sentence in jail is as well remembered, and that his j hands, red with crime, flutter hysterical | notes of sympathy from women who know j nothing of evile, but fret in their honor- | sheltered homes for the knowledge which j brings misery, and the experience which brings shame. Many are moved by a false notion of charity which makes them long to lift up and encourage the criminal, and to hold their frail and untried hands be tween him and the law. And I believe their motives, sometimes, are as high as the plans of the pitying angels. But the man who receives their letters does not think so. Not knowing that he has a soul, he naturally thinks that it Is he. the man, who call? out this s?ntimebt. and he dies gloating over his conquests. Nearly all public men have the annoy ance of unsolicited correspondence. Af fairs of moment to the nation are. doubt less, delayed while the President's secre tary sends courteous, unmeaning answers to questions of similar character and im portance. But in all cases without the much desired signature of the Chief Ex ecutive. No one is safe from the admir ation which must express itself in ink. Before he wa? made President of the na tion Mr. McKinley received a set of twenty verses from a girl in Kansas and they were all in praise of his “flashing black eye.” He bent two troubled blue ones over the poem and remarked, smil ingly:— “I never had a black eye before. Do you suppose this is a campaign pro phesy?” He was assured of it? innocense; but T shall always remember how suddenly serious he became as he said:— “If I had a daughter I should hate to have her do things like this.” Then he folded the paper and laid it on the coals; but the foolishness of that little girl way down in Kansas left a cloud on his brow that all .the laughter of the rest could not dispel. So all high-minded men must feel who receive letters from women. If they are fathers they think with a sharp pang of dread of the thorns that wait the feet , that they guide in the right way. * Comparisons show that the same nutri tive elements exist in both vegetable and animal foods, and that they are within certain limits interchangeable. Both are divided into' two sub-divisions or classes—the nitrogenous and the non- j nitrogenous, or flesh formers and heat givers; the former being greatly in ex cess. The nitrogenous embraces ail seeds and vegetable tissues; while the starch ami sugar in vegetables are what fat is in the animal—the especial representa tives of the non-ntrogenous. Hence, seeds in vegetables represent flesh in animal foods and the starches and | sugars take the place of fats; for the seeds when digested will produce flesh, and by the same law of nature, the starch, when transferred in the body, may produce fat. Every other element re quired for nutrition, whether mineral or organic, may be obtained from the vege table kingdom—the salts of potash, soda, lime, magnesia, iron, manganese: sub stances corresponding to fibrin, albumen ,and gelatin: gum, pectin and sugar; phos phoric, act tic, sulphuric and hydro chloric acids; besides many other acids peculiar to vegetables. The question is whether these same ele ments in their different form in the vege tables will sufficiently sustain life In the sam-s manner as those obtained from the animal footjs, and whether there is any j practical difference between them for the purpose of nutrition. Some argue in favor of the meat becauf" it presents elements of nutrition In -a form more concentrated, so that less hulk is required to be eaten to get the same amount of nutritive value: that meat in more easily digested and | the cooking does not play such an import- j ant part in its digestibility as with vege table foods. Also that a diet of meat leaves lens waste in the system. The comparison "between these two clasne.s of foods may bo stated generally —vegetable foods must be eaten In larger volume and must be bett-r cooked than animal food, and they require a longer time for digestion, and although the vital action may be well sustained by both kinds of food, the vegetable excites the vital process more slowly and to a less degree. Adding eggs. milk, cream, buttef. cheese and nutn to the vegetable list, we have the more easily digested nitrogenous ele -- ments, similar to those In meats, but without the stimulating influence or lia bility to disease. J From generail economical reasons, if no other, it is* well to consider the ques tion of a new diet which will answer all need*? and minister to our comfort with equal.if .not more satisfactory results than the immoderate indulgence in animal flesh. ♦ * * Schule, writing on mental diseases, asks. Vis our civilization «to blame for this neu* rotie condition?" and the answer is in the affirmative. How can nutrition prosper in the body where malnutrition holds full sway? asks Dr. Julia Holmes Smith in the 'May "Pilgrim.” And how can people be happy and healthy when 4worr£ domin ates their lives? For in this hum-in being the lower officers of the nervous hierarchy draw their very breath at the bidding of the higher .powers, and the relation is verily reciprocal, for to keep the brain healthy ‘ the' unconscious nervous func tions must be kept in good shape, proper activities alternating with wisely arranged ! periods of repoee. Just as soon as one ; notices the approach of nervous irritabil- j ity. systematic nerve rest will shorten an j attack, and by rest,'I mean to have the | patient go to bed and have massage! The amount of eercise undergone in a good scientific massage is equal to a walk of two or three miles a day, and it goes* without saying that1 such passive exer cise should increase the appetite and the ; food Ingested and enjoyed will be well j digested and assimilated. I us* the word “enjoy” deliberately because there are some nervous invalids who cannot enjoy their food unless in solitude. In addition to the massage I would recommend salt rubt\ which are very easy to give. Have a saturated solution of common table salt. Ru:b the body briskly, especially from the spine outwards towards the side of the body, and as soon as the skin is well red dened. wash off with moderately coo! water and the chances are all in favor of restful condition. In case perrons suf- i fer from cold feet at night, I would ad vise the bathing of the feet in cold water before going to bed. and having a hot water bag always at hand. Lettuce, celery, spinach, onionst are all vegetables especially value to a person of nervous temperament, and milk hot or cold is invaluable. * * Not a few of the ailments from which girls suffer might be prevented by a little care and common sense. To take one instance—neuralgia. Does it ever occur to you young ladies how largely this is due to the indiscriminate eating of sweets? Girls, as a rule, eat a great many more sweets than are good for them. and. what is worse, they often eat them at the wrong time—i. e., just before or mid- , way between meals. The consequence is that when luncheon or dinner time come? they have hardly any appetite. Commonplace beef and mutton seem most unattractive: they can hardly touch such things, and no wonder. The ‘‘cara mels’’ and “fondants” and “creams” they have been, eating all the morning have turned, as “sweeties” have an awkward trick of doing, into .acid in the stomach, and when your stomach is full of acid you may bid adieu to any relish for wholesome food. “But.” you may say, “what ha? this to do with neuralgia? Doesn’t it come from cold?” Not always*; certainly not. Strong people, says an exchange, whose blood is healthy, can stand a lot of cold and even damp without getting neuralgia. If. however, your system is run down be cause you are not sufficiently nourished, then you are open to all sorts of neural gic attack?, and ir. spite of the posses sion of » good cook and a well-stocked larder you may be half starved by reason of your digestive apparatus being out of -gear. Want of appetite is often the direct precursor o-f neuralgia, and many a girl is the destroyer of her own healthy ap petite for plain, wholesome food because she spends all her pocket money in the | “sweetshop.’’ Some girls begin’ their sweet eating even before they get up in the mornirtg and eat sugar things in bed the last thing at night. They should be warned in time against such a foolish practice, for they w'iU assuredly damage their good looks as well a? their health. An acid state of the stomach is a com mon cause o^, that very unpretty thing, a red nose. Acid secretions ruin the enamel of the teeth. Toothache is large ly due to this cause, and once the teeth begin to go the bloom of the youthful face soon follows. • * * Physical culture ueed to be regarded as extraneous* to the college course. It was a specialization, like music or china painting, and was merely a decorative bit in the currculum. put there for those who might care to take it. It. stood, in relation to the present meaning of the course, about the same as did the white flannel gymnasium suits, whichthe girls used to employ their fancy in "devising, to the sensible dark 'blue and dark red garments now selected for hard use in a wcde-o.uippfd gymnasium. In a word, from being regarded as an amusement, a diversion, or a sort of ac complishment, physical culture in young women’s colleges and in schools has crept into the curriculum, and very firmly es tablished itself. A few* year? ago. it was nearly always optional: and the physical culture teacher was engaged to ”be there" when some few pupils should arrive whose parents had specified that their daughters were to take this work in the gymnasium. The instruction, consisting of pretty fancy drills and marches and dance steps, was given to those who wished to take it, and they were excused from the lesson the slightest pretext. Gradually, as the necessity for physical culture began to appear to a few heads of institutions, the work wa? required for an hour or two hours a week, but only in the freshman and sophomore years. At the present time—in Bry Mawr-for instance—a student must have taken the required amount of physical exercise dur ing the four college years before ?he» may receive her degree. * * - These are the days when, as Shakes peare says, “rooks and daws and maidens bleach their summer frocks. ' says the "Woman ;' Home Companion." The sum mer frock if* a concomitant of warm weather that we would not willingly do without. However much they may de light in young leaves on the elm. the per fume of lilac-blossoms, the morning notes o£ the birds, and other outdoor matters that poets like to sing of, mankind iit general, if they are honest, will tell you that the chief Joy of the season is In the privilege of looking at, and being with, carefully gowned women. Here is one note of spring that the city man has ofter.er than his country cousin The iat- I t^r may see green fleWs and running brooks, but the former sees more marvel ous frocks and fr 11s. This habit of spring gowning is a good thing. Daintily dressed _ £ TOb »5fmmtnn) !• on erwr box of U» *»n»iw <V£* • Uxative Bromo*Qnmme n**. women, whether their frocks be of sill or of muslin, help to make the worli brighter. They add a great deal to th# sum of life’s cheerfulness. There are verj few women who need any encouragement to make themselves attractive; but ii any do, they should realize that gowninf is not merely to be indulged in for tfaeil own pleasure. It is a positive duty. . * « Queen Alexandra has decided that In* dian embroidery of the richest and moat exquisite - description in-June next. It is said that Lady Curzon, the Vicerlue, re cently brought to heT Majesty’s notics £omo excellent examples, of this beauti ful neediecrafi, with the result it was decided to utilize Oriental work for the forthcoming historical functions. The King, during his travels in the East, col lected a very large assortment of Eas. orn embroideries, and Lady Curzon her self possesses many rare and .beautiful examples*. Where once the Queen’s af fections are engaged she proves a most true and stanch friend, and this fact U most marked where Miss Cbarlottt Knoilys is concerned, says “Woman's Life.” As her Majesty’s private secre tary, this courteous lady holds a post by no means nominal: while the affection and devotion she gives the Queen are practical proof of the conrtancy ©n« woman can .bestow upon another. It is very many years now since Miss Knoilys became so conspicuous a member of the Queen’s entourage, and her presence Is always a source of comfort to her Mai jesty. _ • ^ Why are savages and sailors rarely nearsighted? Because they are inces santly looking at distant objects, sel dom porfng.over books. Let a mother, then, endeavor to make her child* notice the shapes of distant objects, the flight of birds, the condition of horses, their various actions, the growth and variety of trees. These apparently trifling cares are mo£*t useful in cultivating long sight, capacity for observation and accuracy ir* statements. To prevent short sight, first prohibit a child from reading at dusk or by flrelght; second, never allow ill-print ed books or one in wnall type: third, no illuminant should be near the *7##; fourth, do not allow reading too long at a time; fifth, a child should not stoop much over a book. Little bee hive chair# are very useful in this* way. The back is well supported, and both feet can. he placed straight on the ground. Bad po sitions in sitting are a fruitful cause of curvature of the spine; sixth, at any sign of trouble in the eyes have them at once examined by a competent oculist. Allow no amateur meddling on this important point. • • • The beauty of the c-fyeek is oftener de stroyed by the Ios9 of teeth than by any other cause. This, therefore, is an ad ditional reason for taking good care of these features whose perfectnes* of con dition is essential to every handsome face. It is most important that the teeth be brushed thoroughly at night, for it Is then, when the tongue is in repose, that the acid of the saliva gets in it* own good work on the teeth. Milk of magne sia should be used after brushing the teeth at night, as it helps to protect the enamel from the action of the acid* that form in the mouth during sleep. In some cases tartar accumulates so rabidly that it must be removed ©very s?lx months, for neglected tartar brings a whole train of evils in Its walks. It consists of lime, and from first settling around the teeth near the gums it goes on extending down around the roots until in its final action the teeth looeea and fall out. • * * First, one must understand that, what attracts men and what they like are not always the same thing. A man is often attracted by a bewitch ing smile, but a good tempered woman- in the end has the greatest hold on him and wins his respect. It is a mistake to think that in these days men prefer bralniesa, silly women. On the contrary, they like tbo*e wh* have bright, quick brains, who take an interest in things around them and can talk sensibly on subjects in which they themselves are interested, though if the women possess superior knowledge on any topic they will do well to keep that fact In the background and play the part of interested listeners. Irreverent women are an abomination to men. Whatever may be their own re ligious opinions, if they have any,* at any rate they like to feel that women cling to the faith Which they once learned at their mother’s knee. • • * Linen is the favorite fabric for th< industrious woman’s present work, and whole dresses are enriched and beautified by her tireless needle. Gowns of linen in pale colors are relieved by collars, cuff# and revers of white linen or muslin, em broidered with flowers in colored sdlks oz in flax threads that wash so well and are so effective for this kind of work. Wash able ties and belts to wear with these lid en gowns are embroidered with small pat terns and are very summery and pretty in effect. • * • Though silken linings still disthrgtri#* the finer gowns, there’s a novel scown# just now' for utilizing finest white cam bric or other similar wash material. Tht little slip skirt is moderately trimmed w'ith Val, lace, and comes back from the laundress as fresh us any petticoat. Tb« waist lining is of the same material, and with proper care will not become soiled before the outside is, when k mAy b« cleaned. In the case of an out-and-om snirt-waist suit many do not have tin blouse Lined at all. MAIL CLERKS MEET Delegate for National Conven tion in Kansas City Chosen.
