How 'many washerwomen bend all day over their tubs, ay, and in verv unfavorable environment, in damp cellars, leaving the hot water in "which their poor, red arms have been parboiled to go out into a tem perature perhaps below zero to hang their washing on frost-stiffened clothes lines ! This band of those who stand next to professional pietists cleanliness being, next to godliness includes multitudes of women who. in addition to their laundry work, have to cook for their families, and what can be more toilsome than to knead dough or lift pots and kettles in a hot kitchen, especially in summer, when the temperature outside is almost high enough to boil water. Then there is a whole army of scrubwomen who, after the million aire and oflice boy have loft the magnificent skyscraper, invade the marble . halls, which they probably dream they dwell in every night or whenever they 'sleep, and down they go on their knees, like the priestesses of some mystic rite, the incense of soapsuds rising into the lofty corridors, and they emptv cuspidors surely not a dainty rusk for frail woman U-and they clean' the filthy iloors tracked with street wid and the tobacco juice decorations of their lordly master, mim.f Hard labor, if it is creative, has at least some interest, bi a great deal of the drudgery imposed on women is heart-breakingly futile.

The time will eome, undoubtedly, wlwfJie rewards of those disagree able occupations will be more fairly distributed than they are now.

However, there are some that mi faWjto outlive this generation and may be sung by generations yet unborn, notably among the number, "Marching Through Georgia and "Tramp, Tramp, Tramp," which were composed by Major Alfred I? Calhoun, a Kentuckian. He lost a leg in a sharp engagement and was thrown into Libbv prison, and while there composed the latter song. Among other songs that have outlived the echo of the fierce straggle of half a wntrny ago perhaps the most familiar now is "Dixie," which has become considered as distinctively southern, although it was intended originally as a purely northern song. "The Bonnie Blue Flag" was a great favorite in the south and was written after South Carolina had seceded from the" Union and had adopted a single star in place of the Stars and Stripes. . It is to be regretted that our "America," by S. F. Smith, is in measure the same as the English "God Save the King," and our rather popular national air, "Yankee Poodle," has no inspirinig words to equal the air of the thousand or -more war songs which were written. It is conceded by critics that only one has really literary valuenamely, "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," by Julia Ward Howe. The soldiers, how over, sang a parody on the splendid song, "John Brown's Body." The most popular song in the south was without doubt "Maryland, My Mary land." It possesses considerable literary merit, although it is said to be a parody on an old Persian song. . It must he admitted, after all, that our one great national air, "The Star Spangled Banner," has not as yet a rival in the Held. Some Excellent Tips for Hot Weather By H. P.

It was some years ago that "Pharaoh's daughter went down to the water," or. to speak by The Book, "ca-e down to wash herself at the rirr; and her maidens walked along bj? the river's side." It is also related 'that she found the infant, Moses. But that is another siory.

The English shudder at the idea of our mixed bathing and surely we are privileged to smile at some of their customs. On a certain warm day in Brighton, not so many years ago, one saw just how this modesty worked out. The few who had taken ma chines were uninteresting, semi-invalid old ladies and children. Then along came a buxom creature who having arranged for a bath climbed aboard and was presently no doubt disrobing. Every Johnnie who had seen her enter lingered and yet oth ers, scenting free entertainment, Joined the waiting list The machine was now down with the front wheels in the water and as it was about time for the "vision" to appear these lovers of beauty drew closer and closer, not a few perching on the wheels as if to get a better view.

Nicholas Doyle, a sheep herder in the employ of Sam Ross, is in this city to get treatment for ra bies. The other morning about 2 o'clock, while asleep in his tent, he was awak ened by a fierce pain in his forehead and the weight of a body on his bunk Ho struck out with his hands and knocked a coyote across the tent. Following It to the jdoor through which it had disappeared he was in time to see a full-grown coyote, the foam flying from its bloody chops, leave the body of a wounded sheep dog and run for the hills. The coy ote had entered the tent of Doyle and bitten him while he was asleep. The teeth of the animal had entered above and below the eye. Without awaiting for daylight, Doyle caught a horso and started from bis camp on Jenkins Creek for this city. While waiting for the remedy, Doyle declares that he is not greatly agitat ed, although be is fearful of losing his life! PLAN A GIGANTIC SUN DIAL Paris Committee Would Thus Trans form the Place Vendome Not a New Idea. Paris. The old Paris committee, a municipal body charged with the preservation of the ancient landmarks of the city, is now considering the remarkable proposal of a member that the Place Vendome be made a gigan tic sun dial, with Napoleon's column as the pointer. All that is required, gays Jules Vacquier, the promoter of the idea, Is to mark the roadway sur rounding the column with a' circle of large figures Inlaid in the wood pave ment, which will thus give Paris an immense natural clock of absolute ac curacy. This curious suggestion is much commented upon, and it Is thought probable that the Paris municipal council will soon carry it out. It Is recalled, however, thnt the Idea is not entirely original, as the same use was proposed for the Place Vendomo find its bronte column in the early part or the last century. r h If.

As a police officer, Captain Harris saw men killed and maimed under many circumstances, but he was un able to stand the sight of a young girl crushed under a heavy touring car. He was the first on the scene after the accident and he played an important part in rescuing the body of the young woman from the wheels of the ma chine. His voice became hoarse im mediately and a few hours later he was unable to talk at all. Captain Harris says he never saw anything quite so horrible in all his experience.

The brain cannot work with clear ness and accuracy, if the food taken is not fully digested, but is retained in the stomach to ferment and form poisonous gases, etc. A dull, clouded brain is likely to be the result. A Mich, lady relates her experience in changing her food habits, and re sults are very interesting: "A steady diet of rich, greasy foods such as sausage, buckwheat cakes and so on, finally broke down a stomach and nerves that, by Inheritance, were Bound and strong, and medicine did no apparent good in the way of relief. "My brain was clouded and dull and I was suffering from a case of consti pation that defied all remedies used.
