DISFIGURED WITH PIMPLES Whitewater, C61o.—"Eczema broke out all over my little grandson's face and body. It just looked as though blood poison would set up at times when he would scratch himself so ! much. The eczema broke out in pim ;i pies and would run a watery corrup tion and wherever the water touched the flesh, another pimple would form, until the pimples would form a sore. His clothing Irritated his body and he lost his rest at night. The disease i was so irritating and would itch so that I have seen him in such an irrl ; tating condition that he would cry and scratch himself until the blood would run. He was very much dls : figured as the skin would be torn from his cheeks from the scratching.

Healthy babies don't cry and the 'Well-nourished baby that is fed on Grape-Nuts is never a crying baby. Many babies who cannot take any other food relish the perfect food, ..Grape-Nuts, and get well. "My baby was given up by three doctors who said that the condensed j milk on which I had fed her hail (ruined the child's stomach. One of ' the doctors told me that the only j thing to do would be to try Grape Nuts, so I got some and prepared it as follows: I soaked lAi tablespoonfuls ! in one pint of cold water for half an - hour, then I strained off the liquid and mixed 12 teaspoonfuls of this strained ■ Grape-Nuts juice with six teaspoonfuls ; of rich milk, put In a pinch of salt and a little sugar, warmed it and gave it [ to baby every two hours. I "In this simple, easy way I saved baby's life and have built her up to a I strong, healthy child, rosy and laugh ling.

It I FAMED APES OF GIBRALTAR Travelers to Gibraltar are always on the lookout for the famous apes of the rock, the only wild monkeys In Europe, and will be Interested to learn that their threatened extinction has been averted. Until about twenty-five years ago these monkeys held undisputed pos session of the upper part of the rock and were seldom seen; but when the fortification on the summit was be gun the animals spread to the lower levels and were one of the sights of the place. One locality. Bruce's Farm, they avoided for years. The story Is that long ago they became very trou blesome to the owner by raiding his fruit garden After various expedients to get rid of them had failed, some one caught a young monkey and tying , it to a tree left It to starve to death. This cruelty was resented by the band, which, It is said, carried away j the dead body and never afterward approached the place. Ten years ago there were fifty or sixty apes on the rock, but many were shot or trapped, and three years ago only three old females were left to represent the stock. When this came to the knowledge of the commandant ! he Issued orders for their protection, ; and imported from Morocco a male and four females; but the three old females attacked and soon killed the newcomers. A second experiment was equally unsuccessful, but In 1911 a third male was obtained, who fought his way Into the good graces of the old females and became the sire of several young monkeys that will now, It is expected, replenish the stock. Unfortunately this sire became so dangerous, viciously attacking the people who would befriend him. that he was lately condemned to be shot. The sentence, however, was com muted to Imprisonment for life In the London Zoo, whither he was trans ported on a battleship and where he now dwells in an admired captivity In Regent Park. The Gibraltar ape, which is ni»l a Irue ape. but a macaque, is especially Interesting to zoologoists because of the isolation of its species In the northwest corner of Africa, for it is restricted to the mountain fastnesses of the Barbary States. All the other members of the genus Macacus are Asiatic, its nearest ally being the rhesus or sacred monkey of India. The monkey the Japanese depict so constantly in drawings and carvings Is another near relative. I WENT TO MORGUE TO DIE To the morgue to die went an old nay horse in New York the other night. The animal ambled down "Mis ery Lane" late at night, stopped at the door of the morgue and whin nied. The night superintendent phones to the police station that something unusual was going on and asked that investigators be sent. Two patrolmen found the old horse, his head against the morgue door. Their discovery greatly relieved the morgue keeper, who was beginning to believe that a ghost had come to keep him company. The horse was found suf fering from glanders and was dis patched with a bullet. ! ! REMARKABLE WALKING LEAF H 1» 4>-' m ■ : S&L ' is v £ • 3?? HI I .

I I SEA GULL STOLE HIS TEETH The height of ill-fortune, in the opinion of Tony Anisti, skipper of a Boston power fishing boat, is to be victimized by a sea gull. As all know, the majority of gulls are kleptoman iacs. Therefore it wouldn't have sur prised Tony had one made off with a mess of fish or portions from the skip per's table. But to have on swoop down and make away with a perfectly good set of false teeth was more than enough to excite Tony. It happened off Gov ernor's Island while Tony was return ing from a fishing trip off Boston Light. Millions of gulls were follow ing the craft, intent upon a meal from scraps thrown overboard from the daily mess. Skipper Tony was engaged in bait ing trawls and laid his false teeth on the deckhouse. He turned for a mo ment and beheld a gull making off with his molars In his claw«. I Few Cedars of Lebanon Left j ! ; Hi Few persons are aware that the ancient and famous Cedars of Lebanon still exist. A certain number of enterprising tourists brave considerable discomfort to visit them, but the general public remains ignorant of the fact that the great groves that supplied the wood for Solomon's Temple and for David's House are still in existence, though but a fragment of what they once were. There are about 400 trees In all. With the exception of a few stragglers, the grove is enclosed by a neat stone wall to protect the smaller trees from goats. In the center of the grove is a small Maronite chapel. To dwellers in Syria, where forests of tall trees do not exist, these majestic cedars naturally excite admiration. A modern Syrian writer says that they are undeniably the most lofty of all the vegetable kingdom. The fact is that they are about 80 feet high, which is rather more than the height of the trees of an average forest. They are justly renowned for the size of their trunks, and the girth of the largest being 47 feet. Their foliage is exceedingly thick, brown as seen from beneath, but when viewed from the hillside the upper surface resembles a green lawn studded with cones standing erect. GOATS EAT CRAPE OFF DOORS An undertaker in the Bronx. New York, has complained to Magistrate Murphy in the Morisania police court that the goats up his way were eating the crape off the door knobs. To make his complaint look like bUBi the undertaker put bis grievance ness in writing. Here's the very note: "The Honorable Judge, Morrisania It is impossible for us Police Court: to look after these goats while we have to go out and support a family and also do housework. If the depart ment of health would take care of these goats and not have them going around dumping ash cans. "Honorable judge, the department of street cleaning doesn't come around for days at a time, and. therefore, are full. They go as far as tearing crapes off doors of houses, and I think they should be done away with." What is probably the most unique stable in the country is to be seen in Lewis county, Washington, where the ! stump of a giant fir has been hollowed out, making a room large enough to house two horses. It is 10x11 at the base, and to render it impervious to rain a roof was added. It stands on the homestead of George Beiries, who first used the partially hollow stump as a potato storehouse, finding room in it for seventy-five sacks. Later he enlarged the interior to its present ! dimensions. A UNIQUE STABLE .

OUR OLDEST ENGLISH HOUSE n» 1 IS Data duly recorded in the records of Princess Anne county, Virginia, show that the main portion of the old house shown in the illustration was erected in 1640 by Adam Thorough good. Adam did such a "thorough good" Job that not a brick has been loosened by the elements in that stout old wall since it was built 273 years ago. It is without doubt the oldest house of English construction In America. The builder came to Amer ica in the year 1626, 19 years after Jamestown was founded. He was an influential man. both in England and fn America, and was granted large tracts of land on the southern shore of Chesapeake bay, and this old house is ou a portion of the original grant from the English king.

The brand-new battleship of the su perdreadnought type had been thrown open to visiters. Her captain stood at the gangway receiving his guests, pride and delight in his magnificent vessel shining in every lineament. Suddenly his gaze concentrated upon an approaching figure. His face grew pale to the lips; he shook in every fiber. Controlling his terror by a mighty effort, he turned hastily to his executive officer. "Clear for action, Mr. Blooddiet," he cried. "Beat to quarters. Load with grape. Order the marines to concen trate behind me, prepared to repel boarders." "Aye. aye, sir," responded the offi cer promptly, although thoroughly be wildered. The blood returned to the captain's face and he regained his composure as he remarked how quickly his or ders were oarried out, and how they were prepared to meet their formida ble foe successfully. When his eyes again sought the object of his fears He was close aboard. "Hello cap'n!" he cried, a vacuous smile playing about his weak mouth. 'Back!" shouted the captain stern ly. "Back, or I'll blow you up!" "Say, cap'n, that's what you seem to be doin'," responded the enemy, giggling. "Don't you try to set foot on board my ship," continued the captain vehe mently. "I'm not going to jeopardize boat, crew and visitors for your pleas ure." "Oh, say, cap'n," remonstrated the enemy With another silly grin, "don't you know me?" "You bet I do. You're the idot that rocks the boat, and you shall not come on board mine." Plans to Live as Savage. To prove that the people of the twentieth century need not be slaves to civilized convention, Joseph Knowles, a Boston painter of outdoor life, plans to plunge into the wilder ness of northern Maine this month without clothing, food, matches, fire arms or ammunition. He promises to stay there until Oc tober 1, to subsist on fish, game, ber ries and wild vegetables and to come out fuily clothed. He will live 50 or 60 miles away from any settlement, and will accept no help from the out side world. Knowles will make his own fire by friction; will build a log cabin from material he finds in the woods, and will make traps out of what he dis covers in the practically unexplored northern part of the Fine Tree state. Recipe for Making Jokes. There is nothing any easier than writing jokes. Simply jot down your ideas for the jokes, say two or three hundred, on a slip of paper; then seat yourself before a typewriter.

Bees Addicted to "Dope." Just add this one to all the queer things that have happened in the year of grace 1913 and believe it's true, be cause W. E. Baker, deputy auditor of the state of Ohio, says he can prove it. The honey bees near Fostoria, which is Baker's home town, have contract ed the opium habit. Like the Chinese, they get theirs from the poppy. Bak er and many other residents of Fos toria grow oriental poppies. The bees have found this out, and of late they are leaving acres of clover blossoms to hunt out the poppy beds. They work very vigorously for an hour or so and then fall to the ground apparently as stupefied as are opium smokers aftefr "hitting the pipe."—Fostoria (Ohio) dispatch ta New York Sun.
