SHE W6RK8 ON AT 80. *"M Mother [v^ympla's Captain In the ™-*Land Office. There are some flue old women in Hie service,of the federal government, and not the least of them 1B Bhe Mrs. Ann Gridley, fTclerk in the land office at Washington. A short time ago she celebrated the eightieth anniversary of her birth. Mrs., Gridley is the wid ow of a gallant ri aVal Officer( who lost his life in the1 fight between the Moni tor and the Merrlmac. Her son was that brave captain of the Olympic who figured in the battle of Manila. For forty years Mrs. Gridley has worked faithfully at her desk,, never missing a day from her duties. She is always an honored guest in Admiral Dewey's home on Manila day, Jtfay 1, and for two years she has been- escorted to tho banquet by the admiral himself. Mrs. Gridley scorns the idea of old-pge pen sions, and says she will keep on work ing until she reaches the century mark. The death of her grandson two years ago "saddened the old woman more than any of her previous trou bles,, but has brightened up, and on her recent anniversary she held a levee.—New York Press. A New Being. Shephard, 111., Jan. 8th (Special)— Mrs. Sarah E. Rowe, who is residing here, says she feels like "A New Be ing, although she is in her fifty-sev enth year. Why? because she has taken,, Dodd's Kidney Pills, that well known medicine that has put new life into old bodies, and has come as a God-send into homes of sorrow and luftering. She says:— "No one knows what awful torture I suffered with Rheumatism and Kid ney Trouble, until I got cured by Dodd's Kidney Pills. This grand rem edy drove the Rheumatism out of my body, nothing else ever did me. any good. Dodd's Kidney Pills are worth one hundred times their price, for they have made me, though I am fifty seven years old, a new being. I am in better shape now than I havfe been for many years and I owe it all to Dodd's Kidney Pills." Like a Politician. Lawson—Bjones always thinks be fore he speaks, doesn't he?

"I used the Cuticura Soap and Olnt ment for a diseased scalp, dandruff, and constantly falling of hair. Fin ally I had to cut my hair to save any at all. Just at that time I read about the Cuticura remedies. Once every week I shampooed my hair with the Cuticura Soap, and I used the Oint ment twice a week. In two cqonths' time my hair was long enough to do up in French twist. That is now five years ago, and I have a lpvely head of hair. The length is six inches below my waist line, my scalp is in very good condition, and no more dandruff or itching of the scalp. I used other remedies that were recommended to me as good, but with no results. Mrs. W. F. Grless, Clay Center, Neb., Oct. 23, 1905." An Awkward Error. An American at Gibraltar entertain ed Charles Dana Gibson at dinner in the late fall, at the Bristol. When Mr. Gibson rose to reply to a '.oast he was a little embarrassed. "I have not the gift of oratory," he be-' gan, "and that is awkward. Indeed, to be deficient in anything is awk ward, isn't it? it is especially awk wardt be deaf. "At a dinner at Dark Harbor last summer a deaf old man sat beside a young and beautiful girl. 'Do you like bananas?' this girl said to the old man, during the first course, in a loud, sweet voice. He, however, misunderstood her in his deafness. He thought she had said 'pajamas,' and he replied: 'No, I like the dld-fashioned night shirts best.' Brazil's Blue Butterflies. The exceedingly high prices often asked and paid for butterflies are ren dered possible by the extreme uncer tainty of the market. There is no means of knowing how long a butter fly will remain a rarity. It may con tinue unique for a quarter of a century or it may become common in the course of a few months. A case in point is that of a beautiful blue butter fly from Brazil. When the first speci mens of this butterfly were sent to England some years ago they readily sold for $50 or more apiece. Since then, however, collectors have sent it home in numbers, and the price has fallen to a paltry 60 cents. INCIPIENT CONSUMPTION. How Food Headed Off the Insidious Disease. The happy wife of a good old-fash ioned Michigan farmer says: "In the spring of 1902 I was taken sick—a general breaking down, as it were. I was excessively nervous, could not sleep well at night, my food seemed to do me no .good, £nd I was so weak I could scarcely walk across the room. "The doctor said my condition wak due to overwork and close, confine ment and that he very much feared that consumption would set in. For several months I took one kind of medicine after- another, but with no good erffect—in fact, I seemed to grow worse. "Then I determined to quit all medi cines, give ^up coffee and see what Grape-Nuts food would do for me. I began to eat Grape-Nuts with sugar and cream and bread and buttler three times a day. "The effect was surprising.! I be gan to gain" flesh and strength forth with, my nerves quieted down and grew noriiially steady and sound, sweet sleep came back to me. In six weeks' time I discharged the hired girl and commenced to do my own housework for a family of six. This, was two years ago, and I am doing it still and $njoy it."

L' r, Sr ww1urn mm Wkl^ifaS* **Li Captured Hippopotami JWobv Caliph, the great male which is the subject of the accompanying interest ing engravings, has been in thi.- Cen tral Park Zoo since 1SS9, while his mate, Miss Murphy, has been included in the collection for a somewhat short er period. These two have proven re markably prolific,- and have presented an admiring public with eight healthy offsprings, and these, with the excep tion of the young one at present in tho Park, have been sold to other menag eries. This is not an exceptional case, for strangely enough these curious beasts thrive well in captivity, and breed not infrequently. Were it. not for the difficulty" formerly experienced in securing original pairs, they would to-day be far more common in zoo logical parks. Needless to say, it is very difficult to capture the hippipo tamus in a wild state and transport •the animal uninjured to civilization, Very likely you have not heard of Chi^la, Mo. This is not strange, be cause Chula. has but recently been placed upon the maps of a state whose citizens insist upon being- "shown" and who refuse to give proper culti vation to their credulity. It is not exactly correct io say that Chula has been placed upon the maps, for on one bright red-letter day in its lexicon it was thrown upon the maps in a bright red splotch by a country editor. This editor came to the city the other day as the guest of the St. Paul railroad. He occupied an en tire drawing-room cur, ate rich food and drank sparkling wines and re ceived adulations from the colored porter all the way from Chula and back again at the expense of a "soul 'ess corporation." The man who compelled the map makers to tako notice ol' Chula en joys the not uncommon name of Smith E. H. Smith. Smith's great opportunity came when tho St. Paul put the Southwest l.imitfd train into service between Chicago and Kansas City. The train passes through Chula on its eastward and westward flights, and there were things about it that, made a great im pression upon Smith's imagination. He watched the flight of the South west Limited as it tore great holes in the atmosphere of Chula, and then wrote this about the train "The new train on the Chicago, Mil waukee and St. Paul railway passed through Chula for the first time Sun day night, about three hours after dark. There, was no hesitation at Chula town, at least none perceptible. There are no high places in Chula town, hence we question whether she ever touched the track.

Betsy, said mother, in her most conciliatory tone, "you know you have been carelcs.=?—just look at tho dirt under that bed." "Dirt," said Betsy, quickly.

The younp woman at the church social had declared her ability to read the. characters of persons by examin ing lead pencils they had sharpenedv To put this claim to the test the young men went into another room .1 v- "Caliuh" the Giant Hippopotamus of the Central Park Menagerie, New York City. While few menageries or zoological gardens include hippopotami among the members of 'the animal %yorld which they contain, the general public is nevertheless quite familiar with the appearance and characteristics of the great ungulates. They have been de scribed in word and picture by in numerable naturalists, historians, anil writers, even of the earliest times. We find unmistakable reference to them in the records of the- ancient. Egyptians, and to-day there is little doubt that the behemoth of the Bible was identical with the hippopotamus. The Central Parle Zoo of New York City, is particularly fortunate in the possession of three splendid speci mens, a pair of older animals and a young one. The pair, Caliph and Miss Murphyj» are well known, not only to those directly interested in these mat ters, but also to the reading public, for the huge brutes have been described and pictured in various publications. In the gratitude of his heart the genera! passenger agent wrote the poet-editor that, whenever he desired to come to Chicago he would be more than plsased to cause the Southwest •Lin.'Hed to pause long enough at Chula to take him on and again to let him off. The effer was accepted by wire, as Editor Smith does not believe in toy ins with l'ortuue nor flirting with opportunity. Then he wrote a piece for his paper, as,everything that hap pens. if anything docs happen, in Chula is news, and told the citizens that he was going to Chicago on the limited and as the guest oL' the gen eral passenger agent and of the road As might be expected, the entire business of Chula was suspended the following day and every man, woman an'l child not. bedridden was down to the depot bright and early.

In fact, a single specimen existed in the Zoological Park in London for over twenty-eight years.. Hippopotami in captivity do not re quire the excessive care and attention I which are usually necessary for the well-being of tropical animals. One factor which is of considerable advanj tage in this respect is the fact that] the animals lack the restlessness and nervousness so commonly found in wild creatures. Though terrible fight ers if aroused they are even-tempered and fairly intelligent, and learn to obey the word of command of their keepers. They appeaf to appreciate kindneps and seldom if ever required punishment. Hippopotami are purely herbivorous, and in the wild state feed upon grasses various water plants, rice, millet, maize, and similar growths. This diet is approximated as nearly as possible Country Editor's Day of Triumph tain which. If 'Central' had not been closed, we would have telephoned to Chicago to see if she hadn't run clean through the Union station. She is sure 'nuf a 'hurry-up train.' Chicago is only about three miles up the track now. She is a gleam of summer sun light, vestibuled and electric lighted from the cq,wcatcher clear back a hundred yards behind the last coach. She is knee deep with velvet carpets, and her cushions are as soft as a girl'a cheek. She is lighted to a daz zle and heated to a frazzle. She was. built to beat the world and her gorg eous splendor makes us chuckle to think we have a pass on her. She goes so fast that the six porters look like one big fat. nigger.

They are fed every day, usually early in the afternoon, on fresh grass or hay, various vegetables, and bread. They have very healthy appetites, and one can imagine the quantity of food that a "hippo" can consume, when one considers that the stomach of a large specimen will mea sure as much as eleven feet in length. The hippopotamus is heir to few troubles. Natural attrition keeps his teeth, which grow throughout his life time, within proper bounds. As he not only spends most of his waking hours in the water, but often sleeps there also the frequent immersions keep his thick skin in a healthy condition. The water must have a temperature of not less than fifty-five degrees, and must be maintained at this point the year around. With the exception of the usual attention regarding the cleanliness of the habitation, other necessary care includes merely the preparation of his food and the regu lation of the temperature. for Chula, and the editor had to tell them with becoming modesty how he had achieved greatness. About the time he reached the spread-eagle stage of his address there was a long, mournful wail pitch ed in a minor key which sounded like the expiring war whoop of an Apache Indian. It was the Southwest Limit ed hailing Chula, Mo. Editor Smith grasped his new $2.75 suit case firmly by both straps and waited, all a-trem ble with excitement The band be gan a .furious fanfaring and the citi zens of Chula. held their breaths. There were two more long wails, fol lowed by two short ones, as the lim it ed's mogul swept down upon Chula's only grade crossing, a cloud .of blind ing dust, an answering "toot" to the tower man as he dropped the sema phore indicating a clear track and a faint moan was borne upon a passing breeze to Smith and to Chula's popula tion an the mcgul whistled for "Nian tic or Chicago, which?" Smith, standing disconsolate with grip in hand, and with Chula's popula tion gazing ritcniingly with a million eyes clear through him, didn't care much which it was. Without so much as a look at his fellows the Chula News' editor turned and hastened to his sanctum, where he sent a telegram which read: "When it comes to four flushes there are others." Needless to say that it was all mistake. The general passenger agent apologized by wire, the limited did not forget to hesitate at Chula the following day. And thus was Chula, Mo., placed upon the map.—Chicago Itccord-Herald. Guilty of Espionage.

OPEN PUBLICITY THE BEST GUMtnNTY OF MERIT. When tho maker of a medicine, sold through druggists for family use, takes his patients fully Into his confidence by frankly and fearlessly publishing broad cast as well as on its bottle wrappers, a full list of all its ingredients in plain English, this action on his part is tho best possible evidence t.hat ho is not afraid to have the search light of inves tigation turned full upon Ills formula and that it will bear the fullest scrutiny and the most thorough investigation. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription for tbo cure of the weaknesses, periodical pains and functional derangements of the or gans distinctly feminine, Is the only medi cine put up for sale through druggists for woman's special use. the maker of which is not afraid to take his patients Into his full confidence by such open and honest publicity. A glance at tho published ingredients, on each bottle wrapper, will show that it is mado wholly from native. American, medicinal roots, that it contains no poi sonous or habit-forming drugs, no nar cotics and no alcohol—pure, triple-refined glycerine, of proper strongth being used instead of the commonly employed alco hol, both for extracting and preserving the active medicinal properties found in the roots of the American forest plants employed. It Is tho only medicine for women's pecnlar diseases, sold by drug gists, that does not contain a large per centage of alcohol, which is In the long run so harmful to woman's delicate, nerv ous. system. Now, glycerine is perfectly harmless, and serves a valuable purpose by possessing intrinsic value all its own, and besides it enhances the curative effect of the other Ingredients entering Into the "Favorite Prescription."' Some of the ablest medical writers and teachers endorse these views and praise all the several ingredients of which "Fa vorite Prescription" is composedr-rec ommending them for the cure of the very same diseases for which this world famed medicine is advised.
