ROUND THE REGION. It has been officially announced that the Lehigh Valley Railroad will erect a modern passenger and freight station at Mauch Chunk, Herman Rlobe, who was awarded the contract months ago, being instructed to begin operations at once. The new station will be in East Mauch Chunk, as the lower station op posite the Mansion House has been abandoned since the flood in March carried away tho bridge across the river. A wonderful recovery of lost money was made Friday by George VVetterau, a soldier who returned to Wilkesbarre from the Philippines two weeks ago. Ho had S4OO in four checks when ho left Nan Francisco, but some miles away discovered ho had lost them. He tolographed to the bank of his loss. On Saturday he recoived the checks. They had been found by a freight brakeman. Mrs. Regina Katz, the owner of a small grocery store at Wilkesbarre, was arrested and held in SSOO bail on charge of passing counterfeit money. A cus tomer charged that she was given a counterfeit dollar in change. Mrs. Latz says she had no idea from where it came. Fifteen-year-old Andrew Selleder, of Berwick, died of heart disease brought on by lockjaw. Selleder accidentally shot himself while celebrating the Fourth of July. Tho wound hoalod, loaving no scar, and the boy was throught to have recovered, but lockjaw developed a few days ago. In order to decide a long-standing dis pute as to their merits as long-distance bicycle riders, John Ilawley and Michael Flahive, of Wilkesbarre, have been matched for 8150 to ride to Auburn, N. Y., on July 26. Tho distance is about 125 miles. Thomas Scott, who lately returned from army service in the Philippines and accepted a position as guard at Oneida, shot of? throe of his finguros on Saturday, while handling his revolver.

A "Violet Si>oniinir." The twentieth century woman Is above all things dainty. She delights In perfumes and toilet waters and sachet powders, and she does not care who knows it. The woman of the past used to tremble with feur of being nc eused of "painting" and would blush with wrath if n man dared suggest that she used a bit of fuee powder. The woman of today has on her toilet table powders and toilet waters galore and would no more do without her dally talcum powdering from heud to foot than a baby can do without its matutinal tubbing and powdering. A "violet sponging" sounds u trifle extravagant, but In reality it Is a most economical way of securing a luxuri ous finish to a commonplace dally bath. After the pores have boon opened by a full length thorough tubbing they ure ready for the violet sponge off. A basin of tepid water generously sprin kled with violet toilet water from an atomizer, a velvety sponge, a few quick passes over the body, and eacli pore Is Invested with flowery fragrance that is the adoration of a woman who delights In an exquisite and dainty personality. Meat For Children. One of the most unfortunate evil con sequences of un early and liberal meat diet, says Dr. Winters, is the loss of relish It creates for the physiological foods of childhood—milk, cereals and vegetables. "A child that is allowed a generous meat diet," he adds, "Is cer tain to refuse cereals und vegetables. Meat by its stimulating effect produces a habit as surely us does alcohol, tea or coffee and a distaste for less satis fying foods. The foods which the meat eating child eschews contain In large proportions certain mineral constitu ents which arc; essential to bodily nu trition and health and without which the processes of fresh growth and de velopment nre stunted. There! is more so called nervousness, anaemia, rheu matism, valvular disease of the heart und chorea at the present time In chil dren from an excess of meat and Its preparations In the diet than from idl other causes "combined," he declures.— New York Medical Journal. The* Gloricn of Womunhood. A serene and gentle dignity; a tran quil wisdom to counsel und restrain; a line delicacy of feeling, quick to re joice, tender to suffer, yet patient to endure; a sulH.le sense of the value of small, un pur chasuble things; a power of great confidence and of self sacrifice ulmost limitless where love speaks the word and duty shows the task; an in stinct of protection and a joyous pride in mothering the weak; a brave loyalty to the rights of the heart against "the freezing reason's colder part;" a noble hunger und thirst for harmony; an im pregnable streifgth of personal reserve and un exhaustions generosity of per sonal surrender—these are the native glories of womanhood. These ure the things that life, if true and well or dered, should deepen, untold, brighten and harmonize in the perfection of a woman's character.—lienry Van Dyke in Harper's Bazar. Mm. Luc 11a Lnne. Mrs. Luellu Lane of Rumford Falls, Me., tlie mother of eight children and a comparatively young woman, is the proprietor of one of the most nourish ing farms of her vicinity. Five years ago when she took charge of the estate of 300 acres it was in a run down con dition and was stocked with imple ments which were of the most prim itive sort. Dairying is Mrs. Lane's specialty. She has a herd of twenty live thoroughbred Ilolstoin cows, from twenty to forty hogs, according to the season, and keeps five work horses busy. Her farm is stocked with tools and machines of the most improved kinds. Sprinkling: Clothe*. Wbere there is a heavy weekly wash a small watering pot with the finest possible rose comes handy for the sprinkling—ever so much handler than the tin clothes sprinkler sold in the shops. But the very best sprinkler Is a good sized atomizer, such us green house men use for spraying plants. Choose one to tit the haud, neither toe big nor small enough to cramp it. It sends out a fine, misty spray that dampens clothes ail over, yet makes no place sopping wet ltome Fitments. Do not have u cust iron rule that things' In your home fitments must match.

GENUINE CASTORIA ALWAYS The Kind You Have Always Bought In Use For Over 30 Years. THE CENTAUR COMPANY, 77 MURRAY STREET, NEW VORR CITY. CEMETERY LIGHTS When I was about fourteen, my mother, whose health had been declin ing for some years, determined to leave the city and try country life for a change. She purchased an old estate some three miles out of the city of It. which had been over a century in one family, who parted with their old homestead because loss of property made it Impossible for them to keep up former style and grandeur. One of the conditions of the sale was that the family graveyard should not be disturbed in any way. It was a beautiful spot, about two acres in ex tent and about half an acre from the dwelling, Just to the right, and where the windows of both stories on the right side of the house and the piazza in front would overlook it. I never was a cowardly child, and this resting place of the dead was a fa vorite resort with me, and on moon light nights I would wander for hours through its walks without one thought of fear or dread of those resting in their last sleep around me, freed from the care and turmoil of life. When we moved to our new home, my fuvorlte brother, who was six years my elder, was away at college and it was not till some months after that he returned home for vacation at a time when our country home presented its most charming aspect—had dressed itself in its gayest robes to welcome him, I said—and superbly beautiful were its robes of green and rainbow tints. lie had been absent so long from home that it was not until after sup per and evening worship that I could carry him off to my favorite spot. He was somewhat prepared for its beau ties from my rhapsodies about it in my letters, but said, as we stood on a little knoll Just at the entrance and looked over it, that I had not done it Justice, cloqueut as I had been in its praise. We wore wandering through its walks and I was asking a thousand questions that kept him busy in answering when suddenly he stopped a moment and said, "Are you never afraid of this place?" "No, Jamie, darling. Why should I be?" I asked. "You come often here alone after night, Lizzie. Are you not startled sometimes?" "No. Why do you ask?" I replied. "Oil, nothing. Only do you see any thing there peculiar in appearance?" he asked, pointing to a spot where a tall marble tablet gleamed in the moon light. "Nothing, Jamie, but the slab of mar ble." "Let's go up there for a moment," he then said, and we turned toward the spot. Upon reaching it I saw nothing, but I could see that he did see something that surprised and somewhat startled him. While standing there he moved his little walking stick to and fro and after a few minutes said: "That will do. Now let's return to the house, and I'll tell you why I ask those questions." Upon reaching the piazza we sat down upon the top step and looked over to the graveyard. Ho sat still for a few minutes and then said: "Well, Lizzie, I have often heard and have read of what 1 saw tonight, but I never thought to see it myself, for I never credited it. At that grave where we stopped I saw a blue fiame rise from the ground and gradually take the human form, or, rather, inside of the cloud of blue flame 1 saw a human shape, and when we went up to it I could distinctly see the contour of the whole figure, though I could not dis cern features. It is startling, but It is not supernatural. U 1 did.not know that you were a brave little girl and not frightened by shadows, I'd not toll you this, for I cannot tell you the cause more than this: Wherever there are decaying human bodies there is a gas generated that rises and assumes the human form, though indistinctly and not to be seen by every one. Now, there in the cemetery I see three of those pillars of blue flame and 110 doubt would see more If all ports of the place were visible from here." I did not doubt Jamie's seriousness In what he said, and, though it puzzled me, it did not scare me, for he told me it could be accounted for by men of science, and my faith in him was too unswerving for me to doubt for a mo ment anything I saw him convinced of, and it dUI not hinder me from tak ing many a long walk in the lovely spot or from again spending many an hour there in pleasant reverie and cas tle building in Spain. During our residence there two other persons told me they saw the same thing, one a young cousin, a delicate, gentle girl, too gentle and conscientious to equivocate and too accustomed to seeing such things to be frightened at them. The other was a man in ids prime, a judge and a statesman of note, who saw it 011 two or three dif ferent occasions while staying at our house on visits. The first time he was standing at ills bedroom window, just after ids visit, and did not know that there was a burial place so close to the house. After that lie saw it from the piazza and in the cemetery after dusk. Ilere I give you my unvarnished tale. I wish I could give you the scientific why and wherefore. This I cannot do, though, and you must rest content in your ignorance or find them out for yourself. A Practical Conclunlon. "Did your investigation of volcanic phenomena lend to any practical con clusion?" "It did," answered the popular sci entist. "What was it?" "A check from a magazine."—'Wash ington Star. A Gigantic Sodilna of War. 11l the Japanese capital there is a gi gantic image of a woman made of wood, iron and plaster. The time of Its erection and the name of its designer are in dispute, hut it is known to have been dedicated to Hachlniau, the god of war. In height it measures fifty four feet, the head alone, which Is reached by a winding stairway in the interior of the figure, being capable of holding a company of twenty persons. The goddess holds a sword in her right hand and a huge painted wooden hall in the left. Internally the statue is the finest anatomical model in existence, every bone, joint and ligament being represented 011 a gigantic scale in pro portion to the height and general size of the huge figure itself. The large eyes are magnifying glasses, through which a lino view of the surrounding country may he had. I'nliijuroil I.IOIIM Seldom Clin run*. Like every other uniuuil, the lion tries to avoid man until wounded, and it Is only in exceptional cases of there being young ones to guard or from as tonishment at seeing the hunters so close to them that they charge when being tracked. They charge with the same coughing roar that a tiger does and come at great speed close to the ground, not bounding in the air, as they are repre sented in pictures.
