Sad teeth, restore sight, hearing .and e

marriages, prevent poverty and in
crease wealth-in fact, to do almost
everything a "patient" wished. Mrs.
Post claimed to be able to accomplish
all this by devoting fifteen minutes
daily to each patient in thinking about
him or her.
According to the directions she is
said to have sent to her "patients,"
they also were to set apart a quarter of
an hour each day, and, going to some
quiet spot, "forget the world, the flesh,
and the devil," and concentrate his or
her thoughts on Mrs. Post at Sea
Breeze, Fla. Mrs. Post held that the
healing thoughts emanating from her
in Florida would enter their bodies, no
matter how far away from her they
were, and renew them.
Of her alleged wonderful powers Mrs.
- Post says: "I do not claim anything

new for my system of healing, except
that its principles have never been gen
erally understood and practiced. I am
the founder of the school of mental
healing in the sense of having applied
principles long known to a few to the
practical work of removing disease, and
have healed many hundreds-even
some thousands-of cases abandoned
by the so-called regular physicians, and
have taught many others to heal in
like manner. 1 have practiced and
taught this system for sixteen years,
and am only now accused of being a
crtminal in doing so.
"And now, though having to defend
myself in the federal courts, I have not
been able to learn that a complaint un
solicited by the prosecution has been
made-that is, It has not been shown
that any one of the many patients
treated during those years made com
platint against me-while I have hun
dreds of sworn testimonials of cures
voluntarily sent me since my arrest,
and a number of regular physicians of
the different schools have testified that
my system is wholly scientific, and they
had themselves sent me patients whom
they found their own remedies inade
quate to CUre. On the other hand,
there are a large number of physicians
who are eager to crush out, not myself
only, but the entire sehool of practice.
"I base my theory on the well-known
scriptural quotation. 'As a man think
eth, so he is.' Thought is the creator
of things and conditions. It is the
prime factor of both health and sau
eess. Thought edaeed from the world's
past beliefs in human weakness breeds
disease, for all disease has its origin
in that lack of seif-conscious power
that enuses a man to feel his helpless
ness, unworthiness and smallness, and
that holds him 1a the realm of self-ea

it is because he is ignorant of the prin
ciples underlying his existence; be
cause, to understand these principles is
to render himself at one with them;
a part of them; or an expression of
them; and as diseaseless as they are.
"I have been a close investigator of
the powers of mind for many years.
I have found that mind is positive to
matter and that thought trained in a
knowledge of its power can control dis
ease and many other desirable condi
tions. It can do this not only when the
patient is present with the healer, but
when he is hundreds and even thou
sands of miles away. Through these
distances-no matter how great they
are-it is possible to transmit the heal
ing thought by forming a conjunction
with the thought of the patient, there
by proving that absent healing is an

"All medical practitioners admit the
power of mind in the cure of disease,
but very few of them admit that when
this power is developed by that course
of training which is known as mental
science study, that every other form
of healing sinks into insignificance as
compared with it.
"My husband and I have built and
established the beautiful city of Sea
Breeze, Fla., for the purpose of fur
thering the more complete understand
ing of mental science. Seven years ago
Sea Breeze was a wilderness. We
bought the picturesque spot and have
sought to add to its natural beauties
. and to attract to it people of intelli
it gence and refinement."
Lh lght side First Wears Out on Cals.
e "The journals in street car tracks al
t ways wear out on the right side first,"
said an expert in traction mechanics
is the other day. "That's because the ma
jority of people are right-handed. This
of sounds funny, but it's a fact. Right
e handed people involuntarily choose a
seat on the right-hand side of the car,
and most people standing up reach for
a a strap on the right. Any conductor
be will tell you that the right-hand seats
r always fill up before the seats on the
no left, and if you make it a point to count
ey the number of persons occupying seats
in a crowded car you'll almost invari
r. ably find that there are more people
ne sqaeezed into the right-hand seats than
in the left. This, with the majority of
standing passengers holding onto the
right-hand straps, throws most of the
weight on the right wheels, and the
extra friction grinds the right-side
journals down before those on the left
are much worn."
Marriage by Asseament.
Marriage is admittedly always a haz
ard. but in Servia it has been made the
basis of a novel variation on the usual
modes of speculation. There sodetes
for providing bonuses on marriage
were formed and flourished to such an
extent as to greatly accelerate the mar
riage rate. The funds were obtained
on the assessment system, and. as
many members who got a bonus and a
bride abruptly stopped their contribu
tions, the aspiring celibate subecribews
who were left found their obligatiaes
increasing more rapidly than is the en.
perieuce of most married men. onae

these companies with great severity.

The spontaneous combustion of coal char
has always been a source of danger pars
upon colliers and other vessels carrying with
it in large quantities,as it absorbs con- the
siderable oxygen from the air, which, slve
in combination with its carbonaceous chin
constituents, generates heat, and this fram
in turn results in combustion. Many stre
attempts have been made to overcome weil
the difficulty, but so far all have proved the
futile. Thomas Clayton, of London, ang
England, however, it seems, has sug- of
gested a method which pro lises to be stre
efficacious, and is at the same time fran
quite simple. After a vessel is loaded arm
he injects into the hold containing the side
coal sulphur dioxide gas and then bat- blai
e tens down the hatches. A nt.nber of low
experiments hve been tried: with the the
method and they all appear to indi- ele'
e cate its entire success. A chamber was hig
y filled with about six per cent of the are
gas, and upon thrusting into it a light
a ed torch it was immediately extin
guished. A long lighted torch, inserted
n slowly, was next used with the same
e result. Then a broad bar of red hot iron
was tried and a torch composed of
e straw saturated with naphtha, also a
a" bucket of naphtha into which a red hot
n bar of iron was thrust, but nothing
se would ignite or explode in the pres
i1 ence of the gas.
Mate, or Paraguay tea, which is the
,d favorite beverage among a population
r- of some 20,000,000, grows wild in the
woods of the southern half of South
America. For many years its cultiva
tion was a lost art. Although large th
plantations were planted by Jesuit the
missionaries more than a century ago, be
later attempts to raise the plant were un
fruitless, and not until recently have
new plantations been established in
Paraguay. The secret of cultivation, it
is alleged, is that the seeds will not
germinate until treated with a potas- of
slum salt. The leaves are usually pre- mi
pared for market by roasting over a m
brushwood fire, grinding to powder, Va
and ramming into rawhide bags; but sa

have only to be set in their path to 1
tempt them with the bait and take
them unawares. Below will be found a
new contrivance for this work, de
signed especially for the killing of
wolves and other large game. As will
be seen, the implement is a sort of
gun, designed to be suspended from
the limb of a tree or other convenient
support. It has a barrel adapted to
zarry a cartridge, the tube proper be
ing inserted in a larger wooden case
.or weight and protection. A breech
2lock is mounted on one side of the
yof arrel, and an opening is made
the :hrough the case for the insertion of
:he cartridge in its chamber. The firing
Spin is mounted in the end of the
breech block, and is actuated by a
coiled spring. At the muzzle of the
gun will be seen a bait fixed on a
curved hook attached to a sliding rod,
the latter connecting with a trip-lever
which releases the firing pin and dis
charges the gun. To put the weapon
in operation a cartridge is inserted and
Ul the firing pin drawn back, when the
gun is suspended from overhead at a
r height which compels the animal to
strain its head upward to reach it,
mar thus bringing its head in line with the
Sdirection of the bullet. Oliver J. De

to Height of Waves.
rith During a storm in which the wined
tin- velocity varied from 80 to 150 kilo-i c
meters per hour (50 to 93 miles) they
heights of waves were observed at th
Peterhead breakwater in Scotland. The
ght results showed the height from crest'
to hollow was 12.2 meters (about 40
un- feet), the period from 13 to 17 seconds,
and the length of the waves from 152
to 213 meters (from 500 to 700 feet).
These figures are larger than those
usually accepted for ocean waves,
which are approximately: Waves in a
strong breeze, about 9% feet; in a gale,
about 14% feet; waves in a strong gale,
about 20 feet; waves in a hurricane, I
about 27 feet.
