VALUE OF A RIGHT LEG.

Only 15 Per Cent.
Jersey City, N. J.-At just how
much do you value a right leg, on
which you have a foot, and mayhap
toes with corns that smart and burn
and tickle when damp weather comes?
When you are a half block from a
speeding, tantalizing trolley car and
making excellent time in its direction
you think that the leg is invaluable,
but the crudity of your estimate is
implressed with severity on you when
you realize that to be without that leg
is only to detract 15 p),or ce(nt, from
your ability.to get along in the worll.

Discovery of Antiquities on Island is H
Found to Be a Fake.
Paris.-That' the practice of "salt

peanized is fully shown by a hoaxing tt
of the grave Academie des Inscrip. bi
tiones et Belles Letters. Last August le
Dr. Capitan read a learned paper on tt
the discovery of Egyptian antiquities ol
on a small island off Marseilles. Dis- t
cussion promptly followed, in which a
new theories of the history of civiliza- 1l,
tion were constructed on the discov- ",
ery which seemed on the way to be
coming epoch-making until the other pi
day, when Dr. Capitan read a second ni
paper, apologetic and explanatory. An B
old man living in the island on whose w
property the antiquities were found m
fell very ill and confessed he had sc
bought the objects from a Marseilles te
curio dealer and had strewn them on fr
pils property in hope it would be pmr al

"Whiskers" was a word formerly
used to designate the hair on the up
per lip. Scott more than once speaks
of "whiskers on the upper lip" and so
does Defoe In "Robin.on Crusoe."
Johnson defined a "whisker" as the
hair growing on the upper lip or cheek
unshaven; a mustachio." It seems to
have taken its name from a fancied
resemblance to a smai; brush, to
"whlsk" properly meaning to sweep,
and a "whisker" having been a iar
ticular kind of feather brush-also, in
the slang of a former time, a switch
or rod. In the s\'enteenth century a
"whisker" signified among othes
things a brazen lie, a "whopper."

DR. TALKS OF FOOD
Pres. of Board of Health.
"What shall I eat?" is the daily in
quiry the physician Is met with. I do
not hesitate to say that in my udtg.
ment, a large percentage of disease is
caused by poorly selected and minprop
erly prepared food. My personal ex.
peroence with the fully-cooked food,
Sknown as Grape-Nuts, enables me to
speak freely of its merits.
"From overwork, I suffered several
ryeas with malnutriton, palpitation of
the heart, and loss of sleep. Last
summer I was led to experiment per
sonally with the new food, which I
used in conjunction with good rich
cow's milk. In a short time after I
commenced its use, the dRisagreeable
symptoms disappeared, my heart's ac
tion became steady and normal, the
functions of the stomach were proper
ly carried out and I again slept as
soundly and as well as In my youth.
"I look upon Grape-Nuts as a pe:
feet food, and no one can gainsay but
that it has a most plron:inent place in
a rational, scientific system of feeding.
Any one who uses this food will moon
be convinced of the soundness of the
principle upon which it Is manufac
tured and may thereby know the acts
