HUMOR IN THE AUCTION ROOM
Stout Lady More Than Met Her Match
When £he Stirred Up Tired
- Looking Man.
I witnessed the foUOWlpg funny In
cident in one of the largest Edinburg
auction rooms. A big, stout lady, ap
parently of the broker class, had en
•coijred-herself comfortably in an arm
chan!, tî and in due course began bidding
for a table, on which a tired-looking
man,' for want of something to sit
upon, affectionately leaned. Competi
tion v H lb brisk, but in the end the ta
ble was knocked down to the stout
lady/ socner recognized that
1t was'hoV her property than, stretch
ing 1 "but her arm, she sharply rapped
her knuckles on it, exclaiming: ''Hey,
man!" But the tired-Jooking man paid
no attention, so slije.èiext poked him
with her umbrella and said with
greater asperity than ever: "Lean
off the table, will you? It's my prop
erty, and you'll scratch it."
The leaner regarded her fixedly for
a moment or two, but did as request
ed. He did more, however for pulling
a scrap of paper from his pocket he
put it under the lady's nose, with the
quiet remark: "D'ye see that?" and
he next indicated a corresponding
number on the armchair she was seat
ed on. "Well, then," he continued
when she had acquiesced with a won
dering nod of the head, "git off; it's
my chair, and I want to sit down."
And off she had to get.—London Tele

The bravest man in New Tori

was pretty mad and while looking foi
some one who had the authority tc

loud enough for everybody to hear.
"My wife bought this hat," he sa.'d

I can't afford to throw all that money

"By the side of that man Napoleon
was a cringing coward," said the
young woman who had made the sale.
"Imagine his flouncing into a Parisian

didn't want Josephine to buy. He
couldn't have done it. Very few men

MEN'S PLUMED HATS APPEAR
Downy Adornment for Masculine At
tire I« the Greatest Departure
In a Century.
^
Chicago.—Plumed hats for men are
the latest. They have made their ap'
pearance in Chicago and have caused
a great wave of excitement among the
fashionable men of the city. They are
the biggest departure In masculine
adornment made in a century, and
are so decided a change from the con
ventional that leading hatters declare
that a complete transformation in
men's formal attire will be the result,
The extreme styles in men's plumed
hats will not become popular at once
say experts. Extreme styles never do,
But observant persons have noticed
that for several years many of the
better dressed men of Chicago have
s£&
WA
The Plumed Hat.
worn a rufTed feather just above the
bow of their dress hats.
Recently this feather has been made
a trifle larger until the leaders of
fashion have accepted it as permanent
feature of the thoroughly up-to-date
hat
The most striking of the new hats
are in the shape of the foreign Alpine
hat which comes in all colors and can
be had with any style of trimming de
sired. One shown is of a light pearl
gray and trimmed with a dark green
plume, with a light border of rich yel
low. A Paris milliner would call it
striking.
The same style with a long green
quille makes ançther combination be
coming to many "faces. The Alpine hat
admits of almost unliimited changes
and will permit well-dressed men to
show as much individuality in the mat
ter of hats as women do now.
The dent-crown imported soft hat
shown, with a novelty wing, is of
dark gray and comes in many pretty
shades of brown, which will harmon
ize well with the newer fabrics which
the tailors have been importing for
spring suits. Wearers of the always
formal silk hat will also be able to
take advantage of fashion's latest
caprice and will not be denied the
privilege of ornamenting it.
Dignified white and gray aigrettes
and other more conservative feathery
effects can be added to the latest
French style with the flat brim with
out defying the mandates of Dame
Fashion.
FOR CROSS-COUNTRY FLYING
Aviators Gradually Turning Their At.
tention to More Important
Phase of 8port.
New York.—Cross-country flying Is
gradually attracting more and more
attention on the part of aviators. This
Is, of course, as It should be. Mere
racing around a track, for hours at a
time, goes for nothing in indicating

the value of the aeroplane. Gradually
the short trips, so uncertain and dan
gerous, have been stretched out, until
now 150 miles in an air line is a com
mon occurrence, made in a single non
stop flight. One of the most daring
cross-country flyers is Pierre Ven
drine, whose feats have astonished
France. In one of these cross-country
Journeys he flew 181 miles and in an
other 212. Recently he flew from Paris
to Pau, a distance of about 500 miles.
Mexican Climate.
City of Mexico.—The climate of
Mexico Is from tropic to temperate.
On account of the latitude there are
three climatic levels known as the
hot lands on the coast; the temperate
lands, from 3,000 to 6,000 feet above
the sea, and the cold lands 6,000 feet
high. But these, except the steaming
southern coast lands, are to some ex
tent relative terms; "cold" meaning
one thing on high ground at 32 de
grees north, and quite another at 15
degrees. The hot lands have a mean
temperature of about 80 degrees; and
a summer heat often of 100 degrees;
the southern cold ones rarely go be
low 20 degrees, and have a mean tem
perature of 60 degrees. In the VaHey
of Mexico, the "perpetual Spring," ^the
range is usually 65 to 70 degrees the
year through. There Is no true win
ter, but a rainy season from June to
October; the dry one November to
May. Malarial fevers are prevalent
along the coast, and have been some
what in the damp Valley of Mexico;
but the great drainage tunnel finished
In 1903 has much improved the sant
tsrv conditions.

CRIMINAL NEGLECT
OFJïKIN AND HAIR
Cuticura Soap and Ointment do so
much for poor complexions, red,
rough hands, and dry, thin and fall
ing hair, and cost so little that it is
almost criminal not to use them.
Think of the suffering entailed by
neglected skin troubles—mental be
cause of disfiguration—physical be
cause of pain. Think of the pleasure
of a clear skin, soft white hands and
good hair. These blessings are often
only a matter of a little thoùghtful,
timely care, viz.:—-warm baths with
Cuticura Soap, assisted when neces
sary by gentle anointings with Cuti
cura Ointment. The latest Cuticura

WHY SHE DID NOT
SEND HER PICTURE
What They Did About It.
The reason was because her face
was so disfigured by a skin eruption
that she couldn't have it taken. Just
make a note of this fact if you know
anyone who suffers from disfiguring
skin eruptions. Resinol ointment
cures eruptive skin diseases. It re
stores the skin to normal health and
clears the complexion. "I take pleas
ure in testifying to the most excellent
results from the use of Resinol, both
ointment and soap," writes Miss Opal
Lilley, Camp Creek, W. Va. "1 had
been troubled for four or five years
with a very disfiguring eruption on
my face, and Resinol has helped it
so much." Resinol ointment should
be used for all skin eruptions, ec
zema, erythema, herpes, barber's
itch, psoriasis, etc. It stops itching
instantly. Resinol promptly allays
irritation and is the best dressing for
burns, scalds, boils, felons, carbun
cles, etc. It is a comforting, healing
preparation, which can be used freely
on the tenderest sfcin. Resinol oint
ment is put up in opal jars in two
sizes, price fifty cents and one dollar.

Street Sayings Are Short Lived.
If some London slang has a short
life, the street sayings current for a
time pass away even more quickly.
Most of these, such as "Has your
mother sold her mangle?" "Who shot
the dog?" and "How are you off for
soap?" survive only in the pages of
contemporary novelists.
Some, however, have a long life.
"Does your mother know you're out?"
has been traced back to 1840 and may
possibly have been»* current before
then. Others are revived, with slight
alterations. Ten years ago rude little
boys would shout, "Where did you
get that hat?" when their grand
fathers would exclaim, "What! the
same old hat!" And the expression
of dissent emphasized nowadays by
''Not in these trousers!" used to be
conveyed thirty yearg ago by the tag.
"Not in these boots f

Little Paul had always been taught
by his mother that God had made him
and that he ought to be thankful that
he had been made so perfect; eyes,
ears, feet, hands and all complete.
His mother had bought a new cook
stove and Paulle was examining it.
He lifted the reservoir lid and looked
in. There was his picture, as natural
as life, in the water, but he was sore
ly troubled, while looking at it. When
asked, by his mother, what the trouble
was, he said:
"Dod might o' made 'me persect, but
he put my head on trooked."
Looking Out for Number One.
Sydney had been given some dis
carded millinery with which to amuse
herself. She trimmed a marvelous
looking hat, and so arranged it that a
long red ostrich plume hung straight
down from the front of the brim, over
her baby face.
"Come here, Sydney," said her
mother. "Let me tack that feather
back, out of your eyes."
"Oh, no, mother! I want it that
way, so I can see it myself. 'Most
always only other people can see the
feathers on my hats."—Judge.
Baseball Anecdote.
"Curious episode, this. Seems a
young fellow got excited at the ball
game and hugged the young lady next
to him, a perfect stranger. She had
him arrested, but he told the Judge
that any man might do the same
thing, and his claim was upheld by
expert testimony."
"And what was the sequel?"
"Well, the sequel is rather interest
ing. The next day there were 5,000
girls at the ball game."
The Tragic Difference.
William was lying on his bed, face

Chills and Fever
cause a great deal 0! distress and suffering. Miss Edna
Rutherford, of Douglassville, Tex., says : "Some years ago,
I was caught in the rain, and was taken with dumb chilis
and fever. I suffered more than I can tell. I tried all the j
medicines that I thought would do me any good, and had
fdur different doctors, but they did not help me. At last, I
tried Thedford's Black-Draught, and I improved wonder
fully. Now, I feel better than I have in many months. It
is a wonderful medicine."
Thedford's j
Black-Draught
has been uniformly successful, during more than 70 yeai%
when used to relieve chills and fever, in any form. Fevef
is nearly always caused by some form of poisons in your
blood. Thedford's Black-Draught strikes at the root of the
trouble by cleansing and purifying the blood, and restoring
the system to its normal condition and efficiency. Enthu
siastic friends have written, from all over the country, tell
ing of their experience with this reliable, vegetable livtf
medicine. They speak with the authority of actual expe
rience. Why not try it for yourself? Sold everywhere.
