Those of us whose acquaintance with clams embraces only the Little Neck variety are slow to think evil of any member* of so delightful a family, but the Inoffensive Little Neck has some big brothers who vigorously ss eent any attempt to pry Into their per sonal affairs. Men have accidentally stepped Into the open jaws of these huge clams at low tide, and the clams, closing their Jaws, have held them fast until the tide rose, when the men were drowned. Other men have reached for a lure In the form of a luminous spot. The instant they touched it the shells of a clam closed on their arms, and In a few minutes the men were drowned. Some of these clams that trap men are founded imbedded In the coral reefs of the Pacific and Indian oceans, and the men captured are pearl divers. The flesh of one of these huge clams sometimes weighs twenty pounds, and added to that is the 500 pounds or more of shell. The shell is sometimes five feet long by two and three-quar ters wide.—New York Herald. The Meon's Mission. Some partisans of final causes have imagined that the moon was given to the earth to afford It light during the night, but In this case nature would not have attained the end proposed since we are often deprived at the same time of the light of both sun and moon. To have accomplished this end it would have been sufficient to have placed the moon at first in opposition to the sun and In the plane of the ellip tic at a distance from the earth equal to the one hundredth part of the dis tance of the earth from the sun and to have Impressed on the earth anil moon parallel velocities proportional to their distances from the sun. In this case tbe moon, being constantly in opposi tion to the sun, would have described round it an ellipse similar to that of the earth. These two bodies would then constantly succeed each other, and as at this distance the moon could not be eclipsed its light would always replace that of the sun.—Laplace. The Transforming Touoh of Genius. The genius in tailoring accomplishes without effort things that refuse to yield to the most determined efforts of the ordinary mortal. He apparently creates out of nothing. His touch transforms the shape of the customer and the set of the garment. He molds the ungainly form into an Apollo, and the misfit garment falls into natural place in his hands. The lines of his draft are unapproachable, and his sys tem is infallible. He knows just when the shoulder is to be advanced or re ceiled; he understands intuitively just how much the waist Is to be suppress ed or filled In and how much spring is required. He never makes a mistake, and if the journeyman ruins a gar ment beyond repair in the making the genius sets it right with a few touches, even though to repair it is beyond the ordinary cutter's skill.—Tailor and Cutter. Close Mouthed. When Austin Lane Crothers was gov ernor of Maryland he had the reputa | tion of being harder to get information out of than any man the Maryland re ' porters ever knew. He wouldn't talk about any official matter. j A reporter who knew him very well was trying to find out whether he would call a special session of the leg islature. '"Mr. Crothers," said the reporter, "in your conversations with Governor Crothers what does the governor say to you about a special session of the general assembly?" "My son," whispered the governor, "the governor never talks to me on the subject. 1 can't get a word out of the I close mouthed old rascal."—Saturday I Evening Post. A Poser. It had been explained to a mau that mathematics, politics, ethics and gym nastics "is." The plural form bothered him until somebody said: "Well, did you ever hear of a mathematic, a poli tic, an ethic or a gymnastic?" The doubter retired in confusion, but came back triumphantly from retire ment after a while. "Say. j'ou wise guys." said he, "tell me the siugular of dandruflf."—Chicago Post. Shaftesbury's Retort. When a member of a church con gress at Manchester argued that the Introduction of the custom of crema tion would endanger belief in the resurrection of the dead the reply of Lord Shaftesbury silenced any further doubt when he asked, "What, then, has become of the holy martyrs who were cremated?" A Good Record For Both. "I've driven my car for over a year now," said Bilkin.s. "and I've never run down anybody." "That's nothing," said Mrs. Bilkins.

THE KENNEWICK COURIER, KENNEWICK, WASHINGTON Graceful Women of India. | Describing the women of India, a i writer says: "Even the most with ered toil worn hag has a dignity of car riage and a grace of motion that the western woman might envy. The sari la draped In an easy flowing style and adjusted as it slips back with a graceful turn of the silver bangled arm, the skinny logs move rhythmical ly and the small feet fall with a silent and pantherlike tread. It la the beau ty of natural and untrammeled motion and says much In favor of the aboli tion of the corset, for the Indian wom en retain their uprightness and supple ness of figure till bowed with age. The commonest type is the coolie wo man, who undertakes all sorts of rough work, carrying heavy burdens on her head, and she is perhaps the least attractive, for her workaday gar ments are usually faded and dirty, yet even among this poor class of burden bearers we see many with handsome, straight features and supple, well pro portioned figures. No matter how poor their garments, Jewelry of some sort la worn—necklaces of gold or beads, col ored glass or silver bangles and heavy silver anklets." The Asylum Debating Club. "This is a wonderful place," said s man in the grounds of a lunatic asy lum near Edinburgh to a casual vis itor. "Everything is In such excel lent order, so agreeable too. They have concerts and balls, and. more than that, what do you think? They have a debating society." "Indeed!" said the visitor. "A de bating society?" "Yes. They are debating just now, and If you like," suggested the man, "I will show you how they proceed. But when they see you take no par ticular notice. Should they address you merely say, 'Let me not disturb you, gentlemen; I am daft.'" The lunatic—for such he really was —conducted the visitor into a room of the asylum and left him, not in the presence of lunatics, but with the board of governors of the Institution, who were just then sitting.—London Answers. Chewing the Crude Rubber. About the first process rubber goes through on the way to become a tire or tube is mastication. After the crude Para is washed it is broken up Into lumps and tossed into the crack ers. These are machines with heavy rollers, which take the rubber in be tween them and chew it. Entering the masticating room of a factory, the first impression is that there is a brush fire burning or else there is a den of snakes at hand. The rubber snaps and crackles like burning branches and then hisses shudderingly. The stuff is kept at until it comes up in regular sheets, very thin and looking like a sort of cake dusted with crumbs. Then after thorough drying in vacuum chambers it is ready to be put in with the chemicals and other things that make up the compound.—New York Sun. Changed With the Change. There was an old negro in a small Tennessee town who had been steal ing a great deal. He would go all over the town taking anything he could get in the form of clothing or food. One day he became very ill. He grew worse, and it seemed that he was going to die. As death approached he began to re pent of his robberies. He called his son to him and told him to return all the clothing he had stolen. After this he became easier and went to sleep. In several hours he awoke. "Mirandy," he said, "am Sam took back dem clothes yet?" "No," said Mirandy. "Sam am still here." "Well," said the old negro, "tell him to hold on a bit. I believe I's gitting a leetle better."—World Today. The Dead Watch. During the rebellion of 1745 a high lander came into possession of a watch. The thing was strange to him and its use unknown to him, and its beauty and its constant ticking gave him pleasure. That night the watch ran down, and the ticking ceased. The highlander now was disgusted with his toy and sought for some one to buy it. A purchaser was soon found at a low price. When the watch and the money had changed hands, the highlander, chuckling over his bar gain, said, "Why, she died last night." —London Express. Changing Doctors. "What you need, madam, is oxygen. Come every afternoon for your In halations. They will cost you $4 each." "I knew that other doctor didn't understand my case," declared the fashionable patleut.

A bald-headed person does not have an equal chance with one blessed with a healthy head of balr, because bald ness Is too generally accepted as an Indication of age. Many large corpora tions have established an age limit, and refuse to take men over 35 years of age as new employees. Probably 65% of bald-headed people may regain a good head of healthy hair If they will follow our advice and ac cept our ofTer. We have a remedy that we positively guarantee to grow hair on any head, unless the roots of the hair are entirely dead, their follicles closed, and the scalp has become glazed and shiny. We want people to try this remedy at our risk, with the distinct understanding that unless it does ex actly what we claim it will, and gives satisfaction in every respect, we shall make no charge for the remedy used during the trial. We know exactly what we are talk ing about, and with this offer back of our statements no one should scoff, doubt our wort, or hesitate to put our remedy to an actual test. We want every one who is suffering from any scalp or hair trouble, dan druff. falling hair, or baldness to try our Rexall "93" Hair Tonic. We want them to use it regularly—say until three bottles have been used—and if it does not eradicate dandruff, cleanse and refresh the scalp, tighten the hair in its roots, and grow new hair, we will return every cent paid us for the remedy for the mere asking. There is no formality expected, and we exact no obligation from the user whatever. We make this offer with a full under standing that our business success entirely depends upon the sort of treat ment we accord our customers, and we would not dare make the above of fer unless we were positively certain that we could substantiate It in every particular.
