Observation Has Shown That It Has (1
S Much 'Influence on One's re
Capacity. ti
In Connecticut the effect of changes di
of temperature from day to day is le
. about half as great as the effect of the lo
changes frfom season to season. It d(
r the temperature remains unchanged il
SPeople work slowly. if it rises they ke
1 may be stimulated a little. If it falls,
on the other hand, provided the fall is
not excessive, there is a decided stim
ulus. The effect 'of constant changes re
of weather may be compared to that H
produced upon a horse by a goon Ip
driver.. If the animal is allowed to go a
his own gait, with no stimulus what- a
ever, he will travel fast at first and ki
then settle down to a slow pace which t
will protract a journey indefinitely. I o
le is constantly urged to him topmost to
speedhe may make the first journey
quickly, but, he will soon break down. CS
The wise driver urges him for a short P
time and then let him go more slowly. C
By constantly repeating this process
he gets good speed from his animal, to
and yet prevents himnt from becoming
exhausted. This is what contant
changes of temperature seem to do to m
man. Therefore, in reckoning the
value of any climate frofm the point to
of view of eflciemcy, storms must be
rated as of high value. If they alone
were the controlling element southern
Canada, frfom Alberta eastward, would na
possess the best climate in the world, to
while the northern United States, or
from the Dakotas and Nebraska east
, ard, the northwestern part of Europe, nc
northern Italy and Japan would come tl
next. England, it will be noticed, is do
the only country included both in the 'ca
regions just mentioned and in those io
where the mean temperature of the th
seasons approaches the ideal.--Har. Al
per's Magazine. so
It has been demonstrated that over- Y.
grazed stock ranges on the national th
forests can be brought back to use he
under a system of regulated grazing pr
faster than if they are left unused. du
Do not feed the chicks until they du
are at least 36 hours old and then let Ul
the first feed be something soft, such
as hard-boiled eggs mixed with oat
meal or bread crumbs. 11

recently made an extended v
visit to the Philippines and it
became intensely interested o
in the natives and their fu- a
; ture. Writing in the New York S
Tribune, she says: You say you h
0 would like an account of my stay in x
Jolo, a description of my friends the el
Moros, and, above all, as my small it
nephew puts it, "the most exciting ai
1thing that happened to you," but un- ye
fortunately I am so absorbed by the
0 great issue at stake, the destiny of a pi
nation, held as it were in the handof occ
the American people, that wonderful a
5 as those days were in that little far ti
, away island, with its mountains, and de
fertile valleys, its palms, its silver
0 beaches, lined with coral and shells, (p
its rainbow tinted fish and many col- I
ored birds, its wonderful stars and at
radiant moonlight, I find myself forget- $1
ting all else in the great longing to el
make every citizen of these United ,
States appreciate the privilege which 46
lies in his power-the gift that he may T
o either give or withhold.
o Remember, please, that I am speak- I
ing of the Moros, not the Filipinos, and
in order to understand the great
5 which separates the two you must.
0 In mitd h a t.that the5l
are Ronnku-?athottes a*u
0 Mohammedans, and, of equal is,.
o tance, the fact that the Filipinos do e
- not want Americans to remain in the
islands and the Moros are begging us
not to leave them. The Moro hates the r
Filipino, with good cause, and the b
Filipino, with good cause, is deadly
afraid of the Moro.. It is well known ex
that just before I left the islands a re
paper published a- a joke the follow- m
ing: "Suggested, that a Filipino gover- w!
nor be appointed to govern Jolo, his us
official residence being in Manila"- di
which is 500 miles away, and quite pi
frankly it'would be a very brave man el
s (Filipino) who would try it at closer, a
range. I agree with those whose solu. fy
tion is to keep the province of Mini n
s danao and Sulu for a generation at al
3 least and let the Filipino have his W
x longed for independence. He has free- be
r dom now if he could appreciate it, but th
like many other blessings he will not th
kecognize it till it takes flight. tl
Housekeeping in Jolo.
There is one man, however, who al.
ways believed that the Moros would
respond to kindness. He is Charles w
t H. Brent, Episcopal bishop of the Phil- st
ippine Islands. He longed to give them ki
a chance of proving that they would al
not reject a hand held out in helpful de
kindness. That reminds me of some- t
thing a man said when I told him be- K
fore sailing that all I hoped to do was th
to hold out a hand. His reply was that fiS
if I did they would cut it off. All I to
can say is it was held out and his "1
prophecy did not come true. On the na
contrary, my experience of the last of
year has made me realize as never be in
fore that love can win where hate sa
spells death, as
We started, Deaconess Young and of
myself, from New York on December. cc
6, reaching Jolo January 28. We te
stopped there only a day and went on 'A
to Zamboango, where we remained so
nearly a week collecting furniture and 'ci
so forth for the only available house "1
we could get in Jolo. It was upfortu- ps
nately situated in the middle of the ci
town, surrounded by sweatshops and m
over a pearl exchange, which sounds
very pretty and smells very bad. I do
not. however, wish to take up your
time with details that simply have to a
do with comfort or discomfort; be- to
cause, no matter how great the discomn. m
fort, it was more than made up for by m
the wonderful success of the venture. m
And after all, the discomfort was not ec
so great, for we had ordered our beds, ca
mosquito nets, etc., sent from New ot
York, and were fortunate in finding er
them waiting for us at the custom- dl
house. That reminds me of my sur- or
prise when .we were obliged to pay cI
duty on anything made outside' of the of
United States, in spite of the fact that m
duty had already been collected in the tt
United States. . e
Were in Real Danger, th
At first the natives quite ignored us. of
I mein those we met in the streets of w
Jolo, for we were not at first allowed is
to xo outside the gates (you know Jolo £1
t is the smallest walled town in the
d world), as there existed a strong feel
d ing that we were in very grave danger
I owing to the fact that it had been her
i- alded we had come to proselytize.
t Some Mohammedans in San Francisco
i had written to a high dignitary that
I we might be expected and they hoped
D every possible obstacle would be put
1 in our way, and as the Moro's idea of
5 an obstacle seldom falls short of death
you can see the danger was very real.
a The first day we did go out, accom
a panied by the bishop and an armed es
f cort, we took the precaution to leave
tla note of instruction with Mr. Ellis,
r the banker, telling what should be
I done in case we did not return.
r Yet we did go out and nothing hap
pened. And after a few weeks both
Miss Young and myself went out quite
I alone. When Miss Katherine Buffum,
also a volunteer, joined us, she took
) 'harge of 'our industrral class, which
I wvas a great sucoess, and Mrs. Tryon,
hlie trained nurse, started in with a
r .ill to assist Mr. Thompson, who had
bharge of the dispensary, supervised
. Af Col. Charles Lynch. By the way,
I e were told before it started that we
yould be lucky If we had three pa
nts during a month. The first 90
dh we trgAted. ncarry u. Undred,
S co'ming from the ottlr ilde of
e island. This pleased us very much,
sa it meant we had gained the confli
• ence and were getting hold of the
s ountain people, who are quite differ*
. nt and much more difficult to get at
a han the natives of Tulay.
F To cut a long story short, with the
1 exception of Miss Young's illness and
1 return to the United States after a few
months of very real work, during
which she and the bishop (he was with
i us the first few weeks) laid the foun
- dation of that which has been in the
providence of God a most wonderful
i exhibition of what the Golden Rule can
r accomplish, the work progressed grati
fyingly; but even the Golden Rule
" might have failed itf we had not been
t able to call into play that other rule
I without which no real sympathy can
" be given. I mean-to put yourselt in
t the other man's place, trying to see
t things as he sees them and not as wE
think he ought to see them.
She Handed It to Him.
I "What d'ye think?" said Lucile, the
I waitress in a New York hashery, as
" she handed the newspaper man a nap
i kin. "A feller comes in here a while a
I ago and says he's wrote a song and
desecrated it to me. And what d'ye'
" think is the title of it? 'Lucile, I
Know You're Real.' Sounds like as it
there was some suspicion about my'
figger or complexion. Don't you in.
terpolate it that way?" "I don't know." I
"Well, I know. So I says to him, 'You
needn't to make me the victim of any i
of your songs.' He says, 'Why. it's 1
Just a harmless little ditto.' Then he 1
says he'll have some oxtail sour and
some tongue. At that I hands him i
one. It was an old one, but I just 4
' couldn't resist. 'What are you trying
to do-make both ends meet?' I asks.
'Aw, be nice,' he says. 'Say something
soft.' So I glares at him and says
'custard pie.' And away he goes."
"You're a bright one," said the news
paper man. "Say, kid," replied Lu.
icle, "sometimes I'm so bright I'm al
most a shine."
Strategy in Tongue Inspection.
Everyone who has ever tried to get
a very smalL child to "put out your
tongue" for inspection, or to open her
mouth wide, that the suspected tongue
might be viewed, knows how hard a
matter it is to really see either the
condition of the tongue or tonsils, be
cause the baby will not straighten
out her tongue or open her mouth wide
enough. I have gotten around this
difficult by putting a drop of honey
or molasses on the tip end of the
Ichild's chin, and asking her to lick it
off. The process of licking of[ gives
me a. good, unhurried view of
the straight, extended tongue; it also
causes her to open her mouth so wide
that I can see her tonsils and the back
of her throat. And all this withdut
'worrying the baby, for she thinks it
