You Have It If You Can Anawer "Yea”
• to All of the Following
A professor once told his pupils that
he should consider them educated In
the beßt sense of the word when they
could say “Yes" to every one of the
questions that he should put to them.
Here are the questions:
Has education given you sympathy
with all good causes and made you
espouse them?
Hae it made you public-spirited?
Has It made you a brother to the
Have you learned how to make
friends and keep them? Do you know
what It Is to be a friend yourself?
Can you look an honest man or a
pure woman In the eye? Do you Bee
anything to love In a little child? Will
a lonely dog follow you In the street?
Can you bo high-minded and happy
In the meaner drudgeries of life? Do
you think washing dishes and hoeing
turnips just aB compatible with high
thinking aB plano-playlng or golf?
Are you good for anything, to your
self? Can you be happy alone? Can you
look out on the world and see any
thing except dollars and cents?
It is cruel to force nauseating,
harsh physic into a
sick child.
Look back at your childhood days.
Remember the "dose” mother Instated
on—castor oil, calomel, cathartics.
How you hated them, how you fought
against taking them.
With our children lt's_ different.
Mothers who clingTo the old form of
physic simply don't realize what they
do. The children's revolt Is well-found
ed. Their tender little "Insides” are
Injured by them.
If your child’s stomach, liver and
bowels need cleansing, give only deli
cious "California Syrup of Figs.” Its
action Is positive, but gentle. Millions
of mothers keep this harmless "fruit
laxative” handy; they know children
love to take It; that It never fails to
clean the liver and bowels and sweet
en the stomach, and that a teaspoonful
given today saves a sick child tomor

What Becomes of India’s Gold.
A royal commission has been ap
pointed by Great Britain to discover
what India docs with all the gold it
takes away from the rest of the world.
In the last ten years India has drawn
.more than $65,000,000 of gold, which
Is almost one-fourth of the world’s
production In that time, from the west
ern world, and the great part of it has'
.disappeared from the usual channels
<of trade and finance. To draw tills
Immense amount from the commercial
world, and pay for It In goods, is, of
.course, an economic drain on India.
Yet it does not seem to suffer more
!by the process than does the rest of
'the world when, thinking it has gold
tor general use, It discovers that the
part of its imagined supply which goes
to India is lost- as completely as if
burled. -

noon, Melissa," observed Aunt Jane
in a casual manner, as she shifted her
embroidery hoops.
Mrß. Merrlwid opened her eyes wide
and became alarmingly rigid. “Here

“Why, I told him distinctly that I was
going to the matinee. I told you that

dearie. Surely you remember. When
did he tell you he was coming?"
Aunt Jane's face approximated the
color of the coral necklace. "He tele

plied. "I didn't want to disturb you
about It so k said you would be very
glad to see blm. I thought you liked
him, Melissa." ,
“I’m crazy about him." said Mrs.

afternoon. Me for the Impenetrable
recesses of the tangled woods. I'll
let you console him for my absence,
dearie, and you can blame yourself."
Aunt Jane’s eyes lost their usually
mild expression and she Jabbed her
needle Into her work with some
vlcloußness. "Thank you, my dear,"
she said. "At the same time I don't
regard the society of a well-informed
and gentlemanly man as an Infliction,
however you may feel about It, and I
may add, my love, that It seems to me
unladylike to make personal remarks.
Even if Mr. Chubb were bald—which
he Is not —It would be no reflection
du him.”
“I didn’t say 1t was Bhlny enough to
reflect,” said Mrs. Merriwid.
"And intellectual men nearly always
have a tendency to baldness," pursued
Aunt Jane. »
"They're generally smooth people—
on top," admitted Mrs. Merriwid.
"You talk nonsense," snapped Aunt
Jane. "If being bald Is a crime It’s
strange that they have to keep bar
bers In prisons to cut the convicts’
hair. You ought to get a Skye terrier

you find so attractive In Mr. Victor.”
"I wonder If that is It,” said Mrs.
Merriwid. dreamily, "or whether lt's<
because Mr. Victor hasn’t dimpled
knees? Honest, Auntie, dear, don’t
you think dimpled knees on a male
person over seven have a tendency to
destroy the spirit of romance?”
"Melissa,” said Aunt Jane with
spirit, “If you talk like that I shall
leave the room.”
"Please excuse me, dearie,” begged
Mrs. Merriwid. "I wouldn't say any
thing to embarrass you for worlds, In
tentionally. But you know, Auntie,
that nobody loves a fat man.”
"Stout people have their feelings."
said Aunt Jane.
“Still, I’m afraid that I can never
learn to love him,” Mrs. Merriwid
persisted. "It lßn’t only that I ache

hls delusion that he has a rather nifty

Aunt Jane looked at her niece queer
ly. “There's something else, Isn't

“I haven't given the matter a great

voice. "You might find the further

highly probable that you have mis

Aunt Jane snatched the little lace
handkerchief from her belt, pressed it
to her eyes and started for the door,
her shoulders shaking with emotion,
but before her hand could touch the
knob her niece had her In an embrace
from which there was no escape.
"Auntie!" cried Mrs. Merrlwld.

Aunt Jane giggled a little hysteric

delightedly. “You perfidious things!

Christian Temperance Union.)
The following facta concerning the
liquor Industry In the beer-ridden city
of Milwaukee are of interest. They
are taken from the chapter on “So
cialism and the Liquor Traffic” in a
volume by Alfred Raymond Johns.
_ Amount of capital Invested in
liquor making, $51,000,00; number of
men employed, 4,755; value of the
product paid out In wages, 6.6 per
cent. Amount of capital Invested in
all other Industries, $185,358,011; num
ber of men employed, 104,461; value
of the product paid out In wageß,
34.8 per cent.
With more than one-fifth of the
total capital invested, the liquor In
terests employ fewer than one-twen
ty-third the number of men and pay
less than one-fifth the per cent In
wages. In other words. If the $51,-
000,000 now Invested In liquor-mak
ing In Milwaukee were transferred tc
some other line of Industry, the city
would be employing 25,000 more men
and be receiving more than $20,000,-
000 per year In wages. “When Mil
waukee goes dry,” says Mr. Johns,
"then will the city really prosper.
The liquor business,” he declares, “Is
a curse to general prosperity.”
Not the least Interesting part of the
liquor Jourlals Is the advertising sec
tion. We read in the last Issue of one
of these periodicals that “the largest
and oldest mall order whisky house In
the south, doing a business of one
and one-half million dollars per an
num, Is for sale, the owner desiring
to go Into another line of business.”
An advertisement Immediately follow
ing simply Btate that “good reasons
for selling wholesale and retail liquor
business will be Imparted privately
by this office.” It speaks well for the
foresight and business sagacity of
these men that they “desire to go into
another line of business." In the grow
ing sentiment against the use of alco
hol on the part of railroads, industrial
corporations. Insurance companies,
athletic clubs, charitable associations,
and men of science, they see the hand
writing on the wall. They realize that
the extermination of the liquor traffic
Is a foregone conclusion.
Temperance work today Is very
practical ns compared with the senti
mental exhortations of yesterday. In
these days, when "efficiency" Is so
general a watchword In the world of
business and labor, we are finding not
so directly that a man Is a knave who
drlnkß to excess, or even at all, as that
he Ib a fool. A runner who ties a
weight about his leg is no greater
dunce than the workingman or the
merchant who puts a dram of liquor
Into his digestion or his brain. It
Is capable of proof by figures and di
agrams that the drlnkfer of even an
occasional glass of wine or beer or
whisky Injures the work of both his
handß and his mind, while the habitual
drinker sows up his mental and man
ual machinery permanently. This is
the gospel of the new temperance
movement.—New Vienna Reporter.
I Total abstinence principles are get
I ting to be a more valuable asset for
the candidate for a “man's Job” than
a college diploma. Even In dealing
with steel and wood, the drinking man
Is without standing. “So essential are
steady hands and bright wits In our
trade," says a constructor of elevators
"that under the rules of our union no
drinking man can stay In the organ
lzatlon. The first time a member of
the union goes on a Job under the In
fluence of liquor he Is suspended foi
a month and fined. For the second of
fense he Is summarily expelled, with
out hope of re-lnstatement. It's pretty
drastic treatment, but we have found
It the wisest way to deal with the mat
ter." The practice of none of the
present day virtues brings more di
rect and certain rewards than does
that of total abstinence.
“Never had a saloon" was among
the list of reasons given on a wayside
billboard why prospective citizens
should come and take up their resi
dence In a Wisconsin town. How’s
that for anti-saloon testimony? If sa
loons help business would the com
mercial club permit that sign to
stand? —Northwestern Christian Ad
The liquor traffic Is a curse to the
nation and the bitterest enemy of the
workingman. It saps his strength,
shortens Ills life, causes him to waste
tils time and squander his wages; It
employs the fewest men and pays
back the smallest per cent. In wages;
It loads the country with criminals
end paupers, and Increases the taxes
thereby—Alfred Raymond Johns.
Had Him Cornered.
A newly elected officer In one of
the prominent New York publishing
houses is having the following story
told at his expense. Shortly after
the announcement of his election he
met half a dozen of his colleagues at
The Players one noon, and they all
lat down together for luncheon. Con
gratulations were extended, and he
accepted them gracefully, as was be
soming In one of hie position. Lun
cheon was ordered. "And do you
sign checks, too?” inquired one of the
number. "Oh, yes.” came the ready
answer. Whereupon six luncheon
shocks were thrust upon him a
chorus of "Then sign these.” He
signed them.
Pierson, N. Dakota. —“The eczema
■tarted on my scalp.'' It finally went
in to the back of my neck, then on to
my back, arms and chest. It broke
out In pimples first and then seemed
to run together In some places, mak
ing a sore about the .size of a dime,
at times the Itching and burning were
bo intense that it seemed unbearable.
The more I scratched it the worse it
became, and there would be a slight
discharge from It, especially on my
scalp, so as to make my hair matted
and sticky close to the scalp. The
hair was dry, lifeless and thin. My
hair was falling bo terribly that I had
begun to despair of ever finding re
lief. My clothing irritated the erup
tion on my back. The affected parta
were almost a solid scab.
“I had been bothered with eczema
for about a year and a half. Then I

months and I was cured." (Signed)

Our Latin American Trade.
Exports from the United States to
Latln-American countries have In
creased from $108,000,000 In 1900 to
$321,000,000 in 1913, a gain of 197 per
cent. Imports from them increased
171 per cent, in the same period. Ex
ports to other parts of the world in
creased 67 per cent. The department
of commerce in a statement says:
“The most rapid gains in the exports
during this period occurred in the
trade with Argentina and Brazil. The
value of merchandise exported to
Argentina in 1900 was $11,500,000, and
In 1913 over $52,750,000; to Brazil, in
1900, $1,500,000, and in 1913, $42,666.-
