Honors to a Woman. It Is a sign of enlightenment in high places that the French gov ernment has taken the radical Step, in disregard of routine and pre judice, of giving to a woman for the first time in the history of the Sorbonne a professorship in the university. Mme. Carrie, who takes the chair made vacant by the death of her husband, is well worthy of the extraordinary honor. Mme. Currie had taken a fully equal part with her husband in the famous discoveries of the properties of radium. She had indeed been the first to study the phenomena of radio activity of certain bodies. She and her husband worked together in the laboratories of the Sorbonne and were mutually devoted to the common aim. Last year, when he accepted the chair at the Sorbonne, it was on condition that he should have at his disposal an adequate laboratory in which he and his wife could continue their investiga tions, which were so completely in common that no discovery of either is to be distinguished from a similar one of the other. On the very day of Professor Curries tragic death under the hoofs of horses in a Paris street the final official documents relating to the construction of the laboratory were published. Mme. Currie will thus enter directly upon the duties her hus band had assume! and will continue by herself both the Investiga tions and the instruction that he had undertaken. Mme. Currie has proved herself a notable exception to the rule of Schopenhauer that persons of her sex are incapable of originality. Just to think that it took this to make Bill Chandler famous! Strange how things go in the respective extremities of the earth. Here we wear straw hats (or will) and in Japan they wear straw chocs. It's wonderful how fertile the United States is. Tickle the muck with a rake and the whole country smiles. Some day the war department will get real crafty and transplant the Pulajanes to the crater. The earthquake shock felt in Illinois doubtless was but the re- Coil of tbe Cannon boom. The British have just lost 50 killed by Zulus. If you hear a guttered laugh, it is a sign that the news has reached German East Africa. Now that Cuba has had a $500,000 fire, thehre is «o more doubt that she is becoming Americanized. In view of recent disclosures, Mr. Rockefeller's Income probab ly has been underestimated. If the rate bill is going to cut off all the palace car deadheads It ought to amuse the hobo, who will continue to beat his way on the trucks.

Phillips, bent with age and adorned with long, gray whiskers. Kidney troubles lame the back, bo that every exertion or sudden twist sends a keen stab of pain through the loins and kidneys. Those paralyzing twinges are sure proof of trouble in the kidneys. Headache, dizzy spells and languor are the effects of uric acid poison ing. Puffy swellings beneath the eyes, bloating of ankles and limbs, weak heart and rheumatic pains are due to inaction of the kidneys. The kidneys are the filters of tho blood. Their business Is to remove the poisons and to pass them off in the urine, together with the watery waste from food and drink. If the kidneys are Inactive, these poisons and this waste are left In the body, to do damage everywhere. The kidneys themselves become affect ed In time, and fall a prey to wast ing diabetes or fatal Brlght's dis ease. It is best to give the kidneys help as soon as pain or uneasiness is felt in the small of the back or loins, or when any disorder of the DOAN'S KIDNEY PILLS Bold by all dealers. Price 50 cents.
