Mr. Luther Burbank, the plant Wi,
ard of California, has originated a
wonderful new plant which grows any
where, in any soil or climate, and bears
great quantities of luscious berries all
the season. Plants are grown from
seed, and it takes only three months
to get them in bearing, and they may
be.gtown and fruited all summer in
the garden, or in pots during the win
ter. It is unquestionably the greatest
Y, Fruit Novelty ever known, and Mr.
Burbank has made Mr. John Lewis
Childs, of Floral Park, N. Y., the in
troducer. He says that Mr. Childs is
one of the largest, best-known, fair
est and most reliable Seedsman in
America. Mr. Childs is advertising
. .- seed of the Wonderberry all over the
- world, and offering great inducements
to Agents for taking orders for it.
This berry is so fine and valuable, and
'suoa't y grown anywhere, that every

Very, Very Seldom Will He Conde
scend to Talk to Newspaper Men
-Will Not Tolerate Anything
Like Familiarity.
Washington.-Formerly it was the
practice among city editors in Wash
ington, when there was a new or
"cub" reporter to be "broken in," to
assign to him the task of interview
ing Prof. Langley of the Smithsonian
institution, on the subject of aviation.
If he survived-if he came back still
imbued with the idea that he was cut
cut to do newspaper work-he was
considered a "find" by the city editor
and usually was given regular employ
ment. Langley has been dead for sev
eral years. Now city editors send
their news men to interview Senator
Eugene Hale of Maine. If Langley
was impossible, Hale is inexpressible.
Langley was like a roaring lion when
confronted by a person seeking in
formation about his hobby. Hale is
haughty and scornful in his treatment
of representatives of the press when
approached by one of them on any
subject. Langley sometimes gave to
the public, through the press, some
benefit of his great store of informa.
tion on scientific matters. Hale ab
hors interviewers, even to the point
of being rude to them, and it is sel
dom, very seldom, that he talks to
any of them for publication.
Writers, probably, viewing their
subject from the galleries of the sen
ate or from afar, have said twat Hale
is of the "old school" of statesmen.
Rather, Hale is of the aristocratic
type of statesmen.
Statesmen of the "old school," to
which Mdrgan, Vest, Edmunds, Cock
- i
roll and others of their contemporaries
belonged, were dignfied always, but
they also were affable. They had a
eheerful "good morning" and "good
night" for everygenate employe, from
tLe man who sciabs fhe polished
inmarble floors of the private corridors
up to the vice-president.
, Senator Hale rarely notices any per
",n at the qapitol who occupies a
lbwer place in the scale of officialdom
than a representative. He addresses
those unider him when he needs them
to perform a service for him, but
never can it be truthfully said that he
hobnobbed with one of them.
Old Senate employes have learned,
some of them painfully, that the sen
ator from Maine will not tolerate famll
iarity, nor anything that approaches
familiarity. It was a new member of
the capitol police force that met Mr,
Hale coming into the big gray build
ing not long ago.
"Good morning, senator," breezily
exclaimed the copper.
"Man," angrily returned Mr. Hale,
•'if you presume to address me again,
your position will be worth nothing
-absolutely nothing."
Then he strode down the corridor
into his committee room, leaving out
side a large man, mouth open and
trembling, unable to figure out just
what sort of a breach he had com.
mitted, but at the same time certain
that he had done something dreadful.
A certain elevator In the senate
wing of the capitol has on it a sigp
that reads: "For members of the
congress and the supreme court." Al
though ·not mentioned on the placard,
newspaper correspondents, by cour
teasy, are allowed to use the "lift."
Senatoir Hale rang for the elevator re
cently. He wished to go from the first
to the second, or senate floor. When
the e~r stopped he stepped aboard,
and was followed by a stranger. Be
fore the conductor could close the
door, Hale stepped out of the car, say.
ing to the conductor:
"When yOqahaie taken this person
to his destination, you may return for

Occasional Flash of Humor Enlivens
Chase After Dollar.
It is supposed that business letters
are deficient in humor. Still there
have been exceptions, and the latest
sent by a member of the well-known
wholesale soap-making firm of (let u:
say) Cake & Son, is one of the most
brilliant. A retail dealer in a smalF

Uncertainty In Plttsburg.
It was Christmas eve in Pittsburg.
The snow sparkled in the tin roofs.
Far away could be seen the rubicund
glow of the coke ovens.
All was luiet in the home of the
Pittsburg official.
Suddenly a low tap resounded on the
outer door.
"Hark, George," said the official's

"It may be Santa Claus," 'said the

The essential difference between

in the English tongue which are al

When the budding diplomatist in
question arrived at our national capi
tal a year or two ago, he soon capitu

so ago the attache returned to thip
country after a lengthy leave of ab
sence passed in his own land. About
the first thing he did on reaching
Washington was to send a note to the
lady of his admiration, wherein, to
her astonishment and indignation, he
gave expression to this sentiment:

The increased use of "Toris" for
rheumatism Is causing considerable
discussion among the medical frater
nity. It is an almost infallible cure
when mixed with certain other ingre
dients and taken properly. The fol
lowing formula is effective: "To one
half pint of good whiskey add one
ounce of Toris Compound and one
ounce of Syrup Sarsaparilla Compound.
Take in tablespoonful doses before
each meal and before retiring."
Toris compound is a product of the
laboratories of the Globe Pharma
ceutical Co., Chicago, but it as well as
the other ingredients can be had from
any good druggist.
