WOHN TCrA SKELETON.
A Wonderful Restoration Caused • Sensation in a Pennsylvania Town Mrs. Charles M. Preston of Elkland, Pa., says: "Three years ago I found that my housework was becoming a t burden. I tired easi ly, had no ambition and was fading fast. My complexion got yellow, and I lost over 50 pounds. My thirst was terrible, and there was sugar in the kidney secre tions. My doctor kept me on a strict diet, but rb his medicine was not helping me I began using I) jail's Kidney Pills. They helped me at once, and soon all traces of sugar disappeared. I have regained my former weight and am perfectly well." Hold by all dealers. 50 cents a box. Fnst.er-Mllhn»n Cn.. Buffalo. N. Y. EGAN DRAMATIC OPERATIC SCHOOL.

Among European States Russia has the longest telegraph lines, a total of 100,375 miles. Xext Is France with 03,750 miles, Germany with 83,750 miles, Great Britain with 40,375 miles. More than twice as many telegrams are sent in Great Britain as in Germany, and nearly double the number In France. All the stores and other places of business in Garden Plain, Kan., ceased business for three days recently, and the whole town went Into the fields to help the farmers harvest their grain. The merchants say that the trade has been so good since they have reopened that they are sure they have uot lost through closing. —A Maine woman owns the best pro tection against the übiquitous fly. It is nothing but a simple hornets' nest, that bangs Just outside the house door. Its inmates are so tamed by the kindness of their owner that they never molest or sting her. Xot a fly has entered the house since the installation of this unique flytrap. William Howe, a merchant In High land, Doniphan County, Kail., says that the farmers around there do nearly all their shopping after supper, and that they come to town as late as 8 or 0 o'clock and that the buying is often kept up until after 11. The practice has become so general that there is lit tle country trade during the day. A letter has just been received In Montpelier, Vt., that was mailed In Ire land, tlfty-two years ago. It was sent to Montpelier, but from there went to the dead letter olßce, where it has re mained. The letter was mailed to Catherine Burgeu by her daughter, but as Mrs. Burgeu Is dead. It was deliv ered to the sender's sister-in-law when she was found by the faithful dead let ter office. A bald-headed resident of Xorth Adams has invented a means of pro tecting his head from the tiles. The device consists of a piece of cardboard throngh which a hole is cut the size of his head, and over this is pasted sticky fly paper, sticky side out. An elastic cord holds the contrivance in place. The man says the tiles do not detect the deception until It Is too late, but shoot for the shining surfaces with as much avidity as they do for the most polished pate. DruKclat Helps Customer! br Pre tending to Hkt« Ills. A pale, weak girl entered a downtown drug atore the other day, says the New York Press. She seemed about to col lapse. The proprietor assisted her Into a chair and prepared a mild stimulant for her. The druggist's manner was so sympathetic that a little later she con fided to him that she suffered with her heart and feared she had not much longer to live. "Heart disease?" Inquired the drug gist genially. "Why. I have heart dis ease myself—have had It for years. That's nothing. 1 don't worry myself about It —I don't look like a man with a load on his mind, do 1? You proba bly think that you are liable to drop off any time. On the contrary, any doc tor will tell you that the nvornge person with heart disease generally lives to a good old age. The very care that a suf ferer from heart disease takes of him self or herself is calculated to lengthen his years Indefinitely. You see a man with a weak heart naturally Is careful of himself a bit. he doesn't commit any excesses, never overdoes anything, rives In moderation and thus keeps his vital ity unimpaired. That's all you have to do. Just take care of yourself. What's the use of worrying. The druggist's cheerfulness was In fectious, the genial interest of his talk made depression appear foolish, and the girl soon began to look more hope ful and even smile. After the druggist had gayly chatted with her a while she rose and walked out of the store with firm step. This druggist, though he would scorn the Idea if suggested to him, Is a bene factor to humanity. He Is a believer in the power of cheerfulness, and the good that he does In his peculiar way I Is not easy to estimate. Keeping Cool. A popular article of household furni ture among Americans In the Philip pines Is satd to be the "refrigerating stove." This stove Is designed to keep people cool insead of hot. Just as we heat our houses In the States In winter with coal stoves, so the wanderer who has set up housekeeping In the Philip pines oools Ills house with a cold stove. These cold stoves are made to look something like nn ordinary stove, and, being fed with ammonia and chemicals, give out radiations of cold waves In stead of heat. One can imagine a fam ily gathering around the refrigerating stove for coolness on a hot night in the Philippines just as on a cold night In the States they had been accustomed to gather around the parlor stove for warmth. A SprliiK Story. Once more we hear the story That was told so lons ago— "The umpire was 'asm us,' And we didn't have a show." —Washington Star. No. 36—1906. One way the married women have to prove they are satisfied Is to talk about tu eld maid's louesomeness. 18 A "CHEERFUL LIAR." ABEBDHHN HES&AID, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1906 One great sacrifice Is demanded by the American people of the man whom tSey honor with election to the presi dency. That Is, the absolute surrender of any notion he may have that he is entitled to any privacy in his life. The servant of the people, he must keep constantly In sight of the people, and must endure any "disagreeable features of the ollicial relationship. One of Washington's first queries, as he sought assistance from his cabinet in shaping the forms and ceremonies of the new republic, was: "What would he said if the President were sometimes to be seen at quiet ten parties'/" There was a great gulf fixed between the state coach bedecked with Cupids support ing festoons, with Its outriders and foot men In livery, and the seclusion and privacy of which the first President was so fond, lie felt the need of ca tering to the public interest in the ruler of a people, but his heart often turned with longing to the old friends whose quiet companionship he craved. I-ong afterwards, when Jefferson and Jackson had had their leveling influ ence, criticism was directed to I'resl dent I'lerce, because he used to step out of his official surroundings now and then to call as a plain citizen upon old friends of his New Hampshire home. If President Lincoln, opening a closet door, found an office seeker hidden within, It was to be taken as a matter of course, and many a woman, forced for the time to share the White House with her husband during his term of otlice, has bemoaned the fate of "the first lady of the land" when cut off from that homelike seclusion which every man aud woman wants at times. It Is probable that the curious Inter est of the ruled In their rulers will not cease while our government lasts. But it must be trying, if not absolutely dis gusting. to a man of President Roose velt's good sense and democratic spirit to find a press dispatch informing the citizens of every State that during a suddeu shower he and his wife had their clothes drenched, even though the added Information was missing that the President's garments were at once sent to the tailor's to he pressed. The President has a right to be put out by a tale of his habits of eating, particu larly If almost every single paragraph of an alleged accurate account Is found to be false. A certain amount of popu lar interest must always attend the routine of a public servant like the President, but it Is difficult to believe that there are many American citizens who care a straw whether there are ten courses or two In the dally dinner In tha White House. Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local applications as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the enr. There is only one way 10 cure deainess, ami that is by constitu tional remedies.

NO MORE A GRAVE INSULT. The Term ••I.liir'* Once Meant a Pis tol ISullpt or Swnpd-Thpuit. There art" In our language many words which have lost much of their original force. Our word "soon," as <ireenough and Kittredge point out, is the Anglo-Saxon word for "Immediate ly." "Itespectable," once a term of honor, has become apologetic, and "worthy," which formerly meant "honorable," has taken on a condescending siiade. "Nice" originally meant "foolish." Only within a few centuries has the word "naughty" loßt Its o-iginal mean ings of "destitute" and "good-for-noth ing." We of to-day appear to bp witnessing the decadence of the word "liar." The once deadly term Is, according to the Baltimore Sun, becoming commonplace and Incapable of arousing resentnic.it One of the strongest and most ex pressive words in the English language has been weakened and cheapened by modern usage. Does It indicate deca dence on the part of our race that men apply the epithet indiscriminately and lightly and accept It with a complacen cy which would have amazed their fore fathers? If this is not decadence, may it not be exactly the contrary? May It not prove that the civilization of the twen tieth century philosophically tabes 110 account of such trifles as reflection* upon a man's veracity? That which our forefathers account ed a virtue, to-wlt, »i»e<Kly nnd condign punishment of the person who grossly insulted another, may be regarded in this wise and cynical generation as ail explosion of childish anger, inability to control one's temper, Inexcusable weakness. If that is the philosophy of our mod ern composure under a line of Insult ing epithets, the lexicographers should take note of It when they revise,the dictionaries. They should say that the word liar, which formerly had a defi nite meaning and represented a condi tion. not a theory, is now widely used In political controversy and 110 longer carries sufficient opprobrium with It to hurt anybody's feelings. It Is a very handy epithet—this lit tle word liar. The philosophy of "You are another" lias taken firm hold upon our civiliza tion. Let the lexicographers do their duty—the word liar has been white washed and is now a rather agreeable term. This is what civilization has done for a once pugnacious and liot temp«"-»d race.
