Human Machine Best.
Paris, France. That machinery never can replace the working man is the con clusion which Prof. Jules Ainar. has re ported to the Academy of Sciences after an interesting study of the man-ma chine. "I took as the basis of my study," explained the professor, "the principle that a man who eats liberally ought to recuperate in weight ever twenty-four hours. If hist weight lessens he workg to excess, but if his weight increases he has not expended the maximum effort After hundred.-) of measurements, cover ing a considerable period, I found that the human machine gives a profit of 25 to 30 per tent on the expenditure, but that the best artificial machine returns only 14 per cent. It is apparent that man is superior to all mechanism. Man, . however, always wastes energy during the first five minutes of work, before re gaining his equilibrium. 'Soldiers ought to be able to march thirty-five kilometers (twenty-one miles) a day at the rate of rive and a half kilo meters (three and one-third miles) an hour, carrying forty-five kilogrammes (ninety-nine pounds). Negroes whom I studied in Algeria show superior re sistance, but less intensity than white men. The man-machine will always be superior in delicacy, though naturally inferior to strength and speed." Studies of an English scientist, who Las discovered that Monday's labor is the most inferior, and Tuesday's the most superior, owing to the curious actions of Sunday as a rest day, and that the workman who does not rest gradu ally loses his energy, are arousing keen interest among French scientists. The lassitude of the French workman on Monday is proverbial. Chicago News. Stongest Girl in World. Big, clear-eyed, crimson-cheeked Margaret Graham is the strongest wo man in the world.

Senator Hale of Maine takes the cap ture of the Maine Legislature by the Demobrats with complacency and speaks a good word in advance for his probable Democratic successor, Mr. Charles F. Johnson. Says Mr. Ifale: "The Democrats cannot do better than to send Mr. Johnson here. He has in him good Senatorial timber. He is a good lawyer, having high reputation in his profession. He is well educated and of excellent personal character. He has been a leader in his party, run ning twice as its candidate for Govern or, and has the confidence and regard of the people of Maine without respect to party. I shall be very glad to see him here in my place, and when he comes on, I shall take great pleasure in inroducing him to his future associ ciates." Patti Rosa. "Like father, like son," is a familiar quotation of ancient lineage, but it is not often that one hears of three gen erations of the female line following the same profession. This unusual occur rence is happily demonstrated in the case .of Patti Louisa Kosa, leading sup port with the Lyman Twin? this year. Miss Tatti Louisa Rosa should have a natural equipment for stage work, as both her mother and grandmothers were footlight favorites of more than ordi nary degree. The young lady is a daughter of the jolly Patti Rosa, re membered with much affection by the majority of the amusement loving pub lie, and Patti Rosa was the daughter of Madam Cerito, a famous figure on the Italian stage in the last generation. Skill in dancing was a great gift in com mon with all three of the family. . Madam Cerito was the greatest pre mier danseuse of her day, and she had the reputation of being able to make more changes in costume with greater celerity than any premier before or since. She had a dozen or more char acteristic dances and a different presen tation with each. Madam Cerito put her daughter on the stage when tie afterwards famous Patti Rosa was a child four years old. Patti Rosa is re membered best now as a comedieuue, although her .knowledge of dancing steps was endless. Patti Louisa Rosa has inherited much of her mother! charm and grace, and has made an enviable reputation with numerous farce comedy productions.

When the kidneys are sick they give unmistakable warnings that should not be ignored. By examining the urine and treating the kidneys upon the first sign of disorder, many days of suffer- ng may be saved. Sick kidneys expel a dark, ill-smelling urine, full of brick dust" sediment and painful in passage. Sluggish kidneys cause a dull pain in the small of the back, headaches, dizzy spells, tired, languid feelings and fre quently rheumatic twinges. Doan's Kidney Pills are for the kid neys only; they cure sick kidneys and rid the blood of uric poison. If you suffer from any of the above symptoms you can use no better remedy. Union City people recommend Doan's Kidney Pills. J. A. Burcham, 216 N. Depot street, Union City, Tenn., says: , For years kidney complaint caused me a great deal of suffering. The passages of the kidney secretions were irregular and there wa9 a dull pain in the small of my back. Headaches, dizzy spells and sen sations of fainting also bothered me.

"The House of a Thousand Candles" was given to two well pleased audiences at the Marlowo yesterday, and to those who are familiar with Meredith Nichol son's portrayal of an eccentric man's weird whims, many pleasant memories were received. The novel, although one of profound interest, has been drama tized into a story which surpasses the original work in its entirety, the vari ous interesting scenes and unusual char acters being preserved, however, afford ing a most enjoyable drama. The cast is thoroughly competent, each, character being portrayed in an artistic and pains taking manner. As "Bates," the But ler," the central figure, Mr. Winn made the most of an exceptionally strong role. The Marion Devcranx'of Rosabel Les lie was one of the brightest comedy ef forts seen here this season, while her heavier scenes were delivered with con siderable dramatic effect. Joseph Bel mont gave a commendable performance of Larry Donovan, the Irish comedy role, while Mr. Miller, Mr. Schanengcr, Miss Johnson and the balance of the cast are also worthyof especial mention. The singing was adequate in every par ticular. Jackson (Tenn.) Daily Sun, Nov. 20, 1910.
