LOST FAITH IN WHITE MAN
Eskimo Tested Efficacy of Telephone Scheme, and Realized He Had Been Deceived. An interesting story is told regard ing the efforts of an Eskimo to con struct a telephone line. The Eskimo came into possession of a piece of wire of considerable length and never hav ing seen wire before he asked Profes sor McMillan of the Peary north pole expedition what it was and what it was for. He was told that the white man strung it on poles stuck in the ground and a voice talking to an in strument at one end could be heard at the other end. After some search the next morning the Eskimo was found to be engaged in telephone construc tion work of his own. He stuck some sticks in the ground and hung his wire on them. He held one end of the wire to his mouth and talked to it at the top of his voice. Then he ran as fast af he could to the other end and held the wire to his ear with the expectation of hearing his own words repeated. When he failed to hear any sounds the expression on his face revealed his opinion of his white friend. ECZEMA BROKE OUT ON BABY "When my baby was two months old, she had eczema and rash very badly. I noticed that her face and body broke out very suddenly, thick, and red as a coal of fire. I did not know what to do. The doctor ordered castile soap and powders, but they did no good. She would scratch, as it itched, and she cried, and did not sleep for more than a week. One day I saw in the paper the advertise ment of the Cuticura Soap and Cuti cura Ointment, so I got them and tried them at once. My baby's face was as a cake of sores. "When I first used the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment, I could see a difference. In color it was red der. I continued with them. My baby was in a terrible condition. I used the Cuticura Remedies (Soap and Ointment) four times a day, and in two weeks she was quite well. The Cuticura Remedies healed her skin perfectly, and her skin is now pretty and fine through using them. I also use the Cuticura Soap today, and will continue to, for it makes a lovely skin. Every mother should use the Cuticura Remedies. They are good for all sores, and the Cuticura Soap is also good for shampooing the hair, for I have tried it. I tell all my friends how the Cuticura Soap and Ointment cured my baby of eczema and rash." (Signed) Mrs. Drew, 210 W. 18th St., New York city, Aug. 26, 1910.

Elected Mayor of City in State of Kansas. For Two Years Town Will Be Com« pletely Under Woman's Adminis tration—Male Holders of High Offices Walk the Plank. Hunnewell, Kan.—Mrs. Ella Wilson, the newly-elected mayor of this city, for the first time since her election consented to explain her plans for cleaning up the municipal govern ment, which in her pre-election speeches she declared to be "full of graft and Godlessness." Mrs. Wilson's first announcement was that she would appoint Mrs. Rosie E. Osbourne, defeated candidate for police judge, to be superintendent of police, while Mrs. E. E. Hilten, who ran for town councilor and failed, will be appointed city clerk. While Mrs. Wilson did not specific ally admit it, the declaration is made that under a compromise plan male officers will be ejected from the high er municipal offices entirely and that for two years at least Hunnewell will be completely under a woman's ad ministration. There is no doubt of the radical in tentions of the women. Mrs. Wilson has declared that the "occasional" liquor traffic will at once be stoppe*! and bootleggers will be sent to jail. Poolrooms must pay license and all grafting is to be abolished. Mrs. Wilson has jumped into world wide fame in a day because she is the second woman mayor ever elected in the United States and the first woman ever given a chance to rule a city surrounded with women officials to do her bidding. The first woman mayor in this country was Mrs. S. M. Salter, who was elected mayor of Argonia, Kan., 24 years ago. Here is the first public utterance of Mrs. Wilson since her election. In it she outlines her policies and alma and voices her determination to elim< c ?y/ ,\*vv "ryvje r *Tf \ftm a*" ••• 5** ^*4 Mrs. Ella Wilson. in inate vice from the community which she lives and is now ruler: "I know that if Hunnewell is ever cleaned up the women will have to do It. I have drawn the task of directing this house cleaning, and I shall do the work thoroughly. "I intend to appoint Mrs. Osbourne chief of police and Mrs. Hilten city clerk. Both are highly competent women, and I can depend on their co operation. Other women will be given municipal employment. I am not at present prepared to name them. "I intend to put a stop to all dis crimination in local taxation and to see that every one gets a square deal. I also intend to see that the innocent are protected and the guilty punished ! in so far as I may be able to bring I think we can go very that about. far." Here are a few of the rtriking state ments made by Mrs. Wilson in her in terview with the Chicago Evening American correspondent: 1. I wish the ladies' aid societies and the W. C T. U. people would de vote themselves to securing by their efforts better sanitary and moral con ditions, instead of devoting all their energies,to reforms which must be brought about by evolution rather than revolution. 2 I am going to install a curfew ! e nforcement in this town so that all i children shall be off the streets at ' eight o'clock. I do not believe the street is any place for either male or female children £.fter that hour, and home training will not injure any of them. 3. The suburbs of this city are full of rank weeds and there is no con certed effort to beautify or clean up II shall endeavor to install a town cleaning campaign, interesting the children as "well as the adults a town ought to be cleaned in the spring Just the same as a house. 4. I shall oppose the voting of bonds for a proposed new city jail The present jail building w in be large enough for all needs under my administration. We can use the money for a more worthy purpose.

FIND STATUE OF HERCULES Piece of Sculpture Twenty-Two Cen. turies Old Is Recovered in London. London.—Buried in a jungle of mer chandise in a city warehouse for over fifteen years the famous marble statue, the "Guarnacci Hercules," re puted by competent experts to be twenty-two centuries old, has once more been resurtected and trans ferred to Earl's Court, where it will constitute one of the numerous inter esting attractions of the ancient art exhibition to be held there this sum mer. Attributed to Lysippus of Sycione, or one of his pupils, this S An Old Statue of Hercules ancient marble has had a remarkable history. It is supposed to have come into being in the fourth century B. C. With the fall of the Eternal City, It lay buried for centuries until during the pontificate of Clement XI., 1700 1721, it was resurrected between the slopes of the Aventine and Palatine hills. Sometime in the early seventies it was purchased by an Italian art dealer in London and exhibited by him at his showroom in Regent street. The damage which Hercules sustained through the fall of Rome was as nothing to that which it suf fered, during its return trip from Paris to London after the close of the ex hibition of 1878, wtiere it was shown. At the docks Hercules's right leg was found amputated and the massive right hand separated from its wrist. The cunning of the Grecian chisel is seen in every detail. SANITARY CUPS I END PERIL !

That fellow Gotrox is a multimil lionaire. He has more money than brains." "Well, what does he want with brains?" Can't Get Away From It Is it possible to nourish, strengthen and Re build the Brain by Food? Every man whq thinks uses up part of the brain each day. »Why don't it all disappear and leave an em|ty skull in say a month of brain work? Because the man rebuilds each day. I If he builds a little less than he destroys, brain fag and nervous prostration result sure. If he builds back a little more each day, the brain grows stronger and more capable. That also is sure. Where does man get the material to rebuild his brain? Is it from air, sky or the ice of the Arctic sea? When you come to think about it, the rebuilding material must be in the food and drink. That also is sure. Are the brain rebuilding materials found in all food ? in a good variety but not in suitable proportion in all. To illustrate: we know bones are made large ly of lime and magnesia taken from food; therefore to make healthy bone structure we must have food containing these things. Wê would hardly feed only sugar and fat to make healthy bone structure In a growing child. Likewise if we would feed in a skillful man ner to insure getting what the brain requires for strength and rebuilding, we must first know what the brain is composed of and then select some article or articles (there are more than one) that contain these elements. Analysis of brain by an unquestionable authority, Geoghegan, shows of Mineral Salts, Phosphoric Acid and Potash combined (Phos phate of Potash) 2.91 per cent of the total, 5.33 of all mineral Salts. This is over one -half. Beaunis, another authority, shows "Phos SETTING A HIGH STANDARD Child's Idea of Goodness Set Forth In Perfect Faith, Without Irreverence. All things are relative, and to the child, gazing at life and its wonders with eyes as yet undimmed by so phistication or sorrow, nothing is im possible, nothing unspeakable, noth ing too sacred to be discussed or too difficult to be attempted. Not irrev erence nor impertinence, but inno cence prompts such speeches as that recorded of the child of a popular journalist by his devoted paternal grandmother. "Grandma," said the little boy, de lightedly addressing her, "do you know what's going to happen? Papa says that if we're real, real good, he'll take us to the circus!" "That's nice," smiled the young hearted adult between whom and the eager youngling no hint of age sepa ration mars perfectcomradeship. "How good do we have to be?" The embryo man, after a moment of silent consideration: "Oh, as good as God, I guess!" HEALTHY KIDNEYS ESSENTIAL TO PERFECT HEALTH. When healthy, the kidneys remove about 500 grains of impure matter from the blood daily; when unhealthy, some part of the impure matter is ab sorbed, causing various diseases and symptoms. To attain perfect health, you must keep your filters right. You can use no better remedy than Ooan's Kidney Pills. Dr. R. P. Marshall, East Oakland, Cal., says : "I practiced medicine in Marshall County, Iowa, from 1870 to 1891 and during that time I became conversant with the splendid properties of Doan's Kidney Pills. I prescribed them in cases of kidney trouble with excellent results." Remember the name—Doan's. For sale by all dealers. 50 cents a box. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, N. Y. n said A Strange Situation.

Phorie Acid combined" and Potash 73.44 per cent from a total of 101.07. Considerable more than one-half of Phos phate of Potash. Analysis of Grape-Nuts shows: Potassium and Phosphorus (which join and make phos phate of Potash) is considerable more than one-half of all the mineral salts in the food. Dr. Geo. W. Carey, an authority on the constituent elements of the body, says: "The gray matter of the brain is controlled entirely by the inorganic cell-salt, Potassium Phos phate (Phosphate of Potash). This salt unites with albumen and by the addition of oxygen creates nerve fluid or the gray matter of the brain. Of course, there is a trace of other salts and other organic matter in nerve fluid but Potassium Phosphate is the chief factor and has the power within itself to attract by its own law of affinity, all things needed to manufacture the elixir of life." Further on he says: "The beginning and end of the matter is to supply the lacking principle and in molecular form, exactly as nature fur nishes it in vegetables, fruits and grain To supply deficiencies—this is the only law of cure." The natural conclusion is that if Phosphate of Potash is the needed mineral element in brain and you use food which does not contain it, you have brain fag because its daily loss is not supplied. On the contrary, if ycu eat food known to be rich in this element, you place before the life forces that which nature demands for brain-building.
