THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT 11 a story of a man in his county who bought a pair of glasses from a trav eling optician which made him see double. "This man," declared Mr. Lahners, "went out hunting and when he shot at a rabbit he always saw two and never hit the right one, and when he got back home he found two wom en in his house when he had left only one there. The Lord knows one wom an is enough." Dodge of Douglas rose one morning last week to speak to a motion called forth by the absence of a large num ber of members. "Mr. Speaker," said Mr. Dodge, "I see no reason whatever of passing this motion. As I look around over this body, I fail to see the face of a single absentee." The ease with which a bill will sometimes go through a legislative body was shown by the way the Uaper bill abolishing capital punishment slipped through the house in commit tee of the whole. The bill had been recommended favorably by the com mittee, was on general file and came up for consideration at the conclusion of a long day's work. It looked inno cent enough, merely being an amend ment to one section of the criminal code, and was not over twelve lines long. Best of Douglas, who cam? down especially interested in preventing the passage of any such measure, noticed who was the introducer, and moved to order it to third reading without .dis cussion. The members voted unani mously and did not know what they luxd done until the next morning they read It in the newspapers. Then Best himself led the light to kill the bilL Members of the committees on pub lic lands and buildings declare that they like the work of the committe.es and would enjoy the task of visiting the state institutions were it not for the fact that invariably the superin tendents of the institutions seize the opportunity of the visit of the "big chiefs" from the legislature to . ask them to make speeches. Most of the legislators are great on getting votes and know how to tell a man that white Is black, but some of them dislike to puH the tail feathers out of the eagle. This was the case at Milford when after a visit to the soldiers' home, some of the committee were taken over to the home for women. In tell ing about it, Representative Fries of Howard said: "All the fellows balked on going over because they thought they would have to get up and make a speech, but, speech or no speech, I intended to do my duty, and sure enough, I got over there and they were laying for me. Well, I told the girls there that the world wasn't as bad as it was painted and that there was somebody outside who would lend them a helping hand and that they should never give up. I looked around and saw the two other members who were going to be called upon after me twisting in their seats and figuring ji what they were going to say, so I turned to them and referred to them SKIN -DISEASE HUMORS IN THE BLOOD When the blood is pure, fresh and healthy, the skin will be soft, smooth; and free from blemishes, but when some acid humor takes root in the circu lation its presence is manifested by a skin eruption or disease. These humors get into the blood, generally because of an inactive or sluggish condition of the members of the body whose duty it is to collect and carry off the waste and refuse matter of the system. This unhealthy matter is left to sour and ferment and soon the circulation becomes charged with the acid poison. The blood begins to throw off the humors and acids through the pores and glands of the skin, producing Eczema, Acne, Tetter, Psoriasis, Salt Rheum and skin eruptions of various kinds. Eczema appears, usually with a slight redness of the skin followed by pustules from which there flows a sticky fluid that dries and forms a crust, and the itching is intense. It is generally on the back, breast, face, arms and legs, though other parts of the body may be affected. In Tetter the skin dries, cracks and bleeds ; the acid in the blood dries up the natural oils of the skin, which are intended to keep it soft and pliant, causing a dry, feverish condition and giving it a hard, leathery appearance.

The have no grudges against his grow ing walth. in his house rent day is welcomed with a smile. When it has passed they count the hours till tho next one arrives. This sounds like sarcasm. The tale is unbelievably fantastic. But hark to the truth. This true and ideal land owner lives, and lives in Paris. On the door of every suit a number is painted. When quarter day comes this landlord draws a lottery, in which are as many tickets as there are flats in the house. The owner of the win ning number 13 relieved from paying his rent that quarter. The lucky house is in the Rue Paul Bert, but it would be useless to publish its number for the benefit of those who might not object to go to Paris and live In It, in spite of the neighborhood, which Is not aristocratic. The house is permanently full up, and there Is no room for that half of the world which would desire to dwell under &uch an admirable regime. The hairdressers of Paris are a van ishing sect. They have been dyeing for a long time. Now they are dying in a more seilous sense of the word and are dying by their own hand. And, when you think of It, everything dies by its own hand. A man perishes of the most innocent case of pneu monia, or so it seems; but in reality he has killed himself with his own ignorance of how to have saved him self from that disease. The hairdress ers of Paris, that great center of halr dressing, have i-nded their career by their exceeding In depend en 29. Parisian ladies are more and more breaking away from these tyrants of the dress ing table. Their lack of punctuality has succeeded in making whole fami lies miserable. For a few francs a month the Parisian lady was accus tomed to have a hairdresser come to the house at an appointed hour every morning. The hairdre&ser came but never at the appointed hour. As a re sult the ladies of Paris very often went with uncombed locks until the evening. This had often very disas trous consequences. Dinners were de layed, engagements were broken, wed dings were indefinitely postponed, di vorces grew to be epidemic.

But above all, she can now dress her own hair. The Parisian lady has aids In. her noble endeavors. She can now buy "store hair." She selects the lovely waves, the puffs and the curls at the hair store and pirs them on herself The puffs come in little bunches 2 for 5, and it i3 inconceivable how many bunches of pull's can be pinned on. The front wave comos way down Ov'er the forehead and is often bordered with a soft fringe of hair. The wave and even the fringe come from the hair store, but it is no longer called a wig or false front as formerly it is a 'transformation." - - Happily for - the ladies who now dress their own hair, the fashion of wearing the hair low in the neck which threatened to become prevalent, was but a passing one. And there ha also been a compromise on the cry: "Away with the blondes." As to being a blonde, the law now is "one may," not "one must." So fortune favors the Parisienne, who combs her own hair and rejoices in her independence while monsieur the hairdresser scks other employment. Not for a long while has anything in Paris clubland so stirred it habitues as the precipitate flight a few days ago of over forty of the most familiar figures In the best known gambling clubs in this citv, savs the Manchester Chronicle. One night these gentlemen were all at their accustomed places, the next they had completely vanished. The police could not find them, and they were more anxious to find them than anybody else, for they held de crees from the minister of the interior informing them that their presence was no longer desired in France, and that they would be obliged to see them safely over the frontier. Prance is pretty tolerant in most things, gambling included, provided it is done decently and in order, but when a number of recent arrivals from Belgium came along with a new game, which, because of its deadlv renults, was known among its victims as the "Faucheuse," a game whicn gave the unhappy player no chance, and when these same gentlemen in a few weeks swept into their capacious pockets over 200,000 pounds, the authorities considered it was time to make in quiries. Then they discovered that the club men of Paris and Nice, of Pau and Biarritz, were practically in the hands of a disreputable gang of nondescripts Belgians, Spaniards, and Argentines who were making tons of money by playing what they termed "baccarat a untableau," a game something sim ilar to railway baccarat, with this dif lerence, that in the new game the banker always deals the cards. The moving spirit in the whole af fair the Napolean of the game was Belgian named Marquet, at one time a cafe waiter, who, having made some money at gambling, organized a band f cropiers and accomplices. Being obliged to leave Beleium. when tum bling was prohibited in that country, he descended with his acolytes on Paris. The best clubs refused to admit the compatriots of King Leopold, but in the second and third rate clubs Mar quet simply hired the gaming tables at so much a night usually less than a hundred pounds and only allowed "baccarat a un tableau" to be played. How long he was in getting: back his money may easily be guessed when it is stated that at the Modern club in the avenue MacMahon the losses in one night .sometimes totalled more than 4,000 pounds. One of the worst features of the scandal that has just been brought to light was that in certain west-end clubs where women are admitted the fair gamblers became so infatuated with the new game that, once fairly launched on the path of treacherous chance, they v-ould not stop until every sou was gone. IS yen then they did not stop, Wit snatching their jewels from their necks and fingers, they kept on playing In desperation until they had not a sin gle article of jewelry left. Senator Ktwx is quitted as saying, whin informed that his sun had "eloped" and been married as simply as it rural clergyman could do It: "I find this morning that I have acquired a very charming daughter-in-law with out any of the trouble Incidental to a conventional weddinif."

It seems to be true, however, that the great majority of women like elab orate weddings, either as spectators or as one of the principals, and the more elaborate the weddings are the better the women like them. They are, to be sure extremely prone to weep while the ceremony is in progress, but apparent ly the tears are happy, or at least near happy, tears, and all the prepar atory toils that fall upon them they perform with the utmost cheerfulness. As for the expense, there was no par ticular need to count on it In this case and probably it is very rarely be grudged, even when It somewhat ex ceeds the amount approved by practi cal common sense that grim and rather obnoxious virtue. A stout man with florid cheeks and choleric blue eyes slipped and fell on the slush-covered sidewalks at Wall and William streets, says the New York Post. In an attempt to rise quickly and gracefully he stumbled and fell again. With a look of deep disgust he remained in a sitting pos ture for a few seconds as though de termined not to arise just for spite." In the meantime a crowd had collect ed. They surrounded the man. They looked at him; he looked at them. Finally he spoke: "Well, gentleman, what is the trouble?" he said. The crowd without a single reply disinte grated, and the fallen man regained his feet in splendid isolation. "What I like," said a doctor, "is a patient of experience. Next to no pa tients at all, the greatest trial for a doctor Is to have a lot of green hands under treatment. Experience counts in taking medicine as in everything else. The new recruit to the ranks of the 111 Is afraid of many things. His eye is untrained and his hand unsteady. He exaggerates danger at every point. He may get the spoon too full or not full enough; he may pour out a drop too few or a drop too many. In his per plexity, he sees but one sure way to avoid either horn of, the dilemma, and that is to take no medicine at all. He is intractable in many ways. He stays indoors when ho should go out, and he goes out when he should stay in. "The old stager who has saturated himself with medicine until his pores ooze oils and tonics is the fellow who brings joy to the heart of his physi cian. He knows what medicine is for, he takes it faithfully, scientifically, and even joyfully. He watches his symptoms and the effect of the drugs. He knows all about his tongue, his temperature, and his pulse, and can determine for himself whether one pellet or two is the proper dose. That self-analysis saves the doctor a lot of trouble. Hence the doctor's partiality for a visiting list made up of persons who know how to be sick." DROPSY TREATED FREE $2.50 Worth of New Treatment Will Be Sent Free by the Well-Known Specialist, Franklin Miles, M. D., LL. B. At first no disease is apparently more harmless than dropsy, a little puffing of the eyelids or hands or a slight swelling of the feet, ankles or abdomen. Then there is great short ness of breath, smothering spells, sit ting up to breathe, cough, faint spells, sometimes nausea and vomiting even bursting of the limbs and if not re lieved a lingering and wretched death Dr. Miles is known as a leading spe cialist in this class of diseases for 25 years. His liberal offer Is certainly worthy of serious consideration, an other opportunity may not occur. Kach treatment consists of his Grand Dropsy Cure, which includes the three best dropsy remedies in one Tonic tablets, a box of Pura-Uixa for regulating the bowels Hnd removing the water.
