"That was tit for tat with a ven geance,” said Walter Christie, the au> tomobillat, apropos of a quarrel bo tween two French chauffeurs. "It re minds me of a grocer I used to know In Paint Rock. This grocer went over to the jeweler’s one day to get a new crystal put on his watch. The latter as he fitted and cleaned the crystal suddenly flushed. He bit his lip and frowned. His hand trembled so that he could hardly go on with his task. Finally, handing the watch to the gro cer, the jeweler said In a restrained voice: ’Beg pardon, but didn’t I Just see you put a couple of rings and a acarfpin in your pocket*?” " ‘Sure you did,' is Id the grocer, boldly. ‘When you coma to my place aren't you always putting things, Is your mouth?’ ” Chamois Skin of Commsrco. Charles C. Druedllng, of Philadel phia. has written an article for the American Journal of Pharmacy on the subject of chamois skins. What la known in the market as chamois sklna. he says. Is really an oil-tanned sheep or lamb skin lining. The supply of skins from the chamois animal Is very, limited —enough could not be obtained in a year to supply the United States for more than a single day. He made special Inquiry on a recent visit to Switzerland abort the annual crop of the chamois skin and ascertained that from 6,000 to 6,000 skins would be a fair average yearly crop. This skin is heavier than the skin of the sheep or lamb, also much coarser. For strength and durability the chamois skin is pro ferable, but for ordinary use and ap pearance the oil-tanned sheep skin lining would, in most instances, be preferred. AN OLD TIMER. Has Had Experiences. A woman who has used Postum Food Coffee since it came upon the market 8 years ago knows from ex* perlence the necessity of using Pos tum in place of coffee if one values health and a steady brain. She says: ‘‘At the time Postum waa first put on the market I was suffer ing from nervous dyspepsia and my physician had repeatedly told me not to use tea or coffee. Finally 1 de cided to take his advice and try Postum, and got a sample and had it carefully prepared, finding it deli cious to the taste. So 1 continued its use and very soon its beneficial ef fects convinced me of its value, for 1 got well of my nervousness and dys pepsia. “My husband had been drinking cof fee all his life until it had affected x his nerves terribly. 1 persuaded him to shift to Postum and it waa easy to get him to make the change for the Postum is delicious. It certainly worked wonders for him. “We soon learned that Postum does not exhilarate or depress and does not stimulate, but steadily and honestly strengthens the nerves and the stom ach. To make a long story short our entire family have now used Postum for eight years with completely sat isfying results, as shown in our fine condition of health and we have no ticed a rather unexpected Improve ment In brain and nerve power." Name given by Postum 00., Battle Creek, Mich. Increased brain and nerve power al ways follow the use of Postum in place of coffee, sometimes in s very marxed manner. Look in pkgs. for “The Road to IWdUvUle.” An Hour from Life. BY GRACE G. BOSTWICK. ICopyright. 1906, by Daily Story Pub. Co.) The tiny particles of ice clinked musically against the •ides of the glass as he raised It to his li|M« and drank eagerly. There were lines of weariness about his thin-lipped mouth aud his eyes drooped with exhaus tion. “Thank you, Marina!” he said, gratefully, as she took the empty glass, “You are very kind.” Bhe laughed. It was au odd, in expressive sort of laugh. She looked iiim over curiously with a cold glance that made him wince. He stirred restlessly. Her expression suddenly changed to one of fierce tender ness. “If you knew,” she said, softly, “perhaps you would not be so grateful.” He turned indifferent eyes npon her. “If I knew! Knew what?” he asked, irritably, a quick distrust leaping to his face. She smiled and her smile contained all the elements that her laugh had lacked. Humor, of a dry, subtle sort, a kind of .bitter satisfaction and a sneer ing note of cynicism as well as a cruel one of revenge. It might be revenege—it might be something else. The man could not decide which as he lay back watching her uneasily. A vague, intangible danger permeated the atmosphere and penetrated to his tired brain. There were rea sons, he thought with quick self disgust, why he might well be afraid. He had earned the fear as he had earned whatever might be the result. Bhe threw her head back and peered at him from under heavy lids. “The lemonade you just drank contained enough poison to kill a horse.” She did not re lax her attitude but gazed de fiantly at him. “Well,” he said, quietly, “I ex pected something original of you, Marina, but why poisou, of all things?” Bhe laughed cruelly as she watched for signs of weakening. He returned her look, half smiling, with no evidence of the horror in his mind. He had him self under superb command. Bhe admired him with intensity even as the expression of cold curiosity remained on her face. “I don’t blame you, child,” he spoke kindly, “I deserve it, God knows! I only wonder that you have restrained yourself so long. It’s been hard *on you—devilish bard! I knew you were suffer ing, but I was powerless to help you. When love is dead—” he threw out his hands expressive ly. “I ought to have left you at once,” he continued, thought fully, “but it seemed too cruel to ■tab you like that and leave you alone.” His natural kindness of heart found voice in his words. “The wrong was in my taking up with you at the start. If I hadn’t done that, and it was against my better judgment as you will recollect, things would never have come to this pass. As it is—well, it’s too late now for regrets.” He smiled at her quietly, kindly. The old longing, the old yearn ing desire throbbed fiercely through her as she faced him. Suddenly she broke the silence. “No, Jim,” she cried. “How cruel you are! How cruel! Never a word of tenderness— never a touch—and I—O, God help me, loving you. with all the terrible heart of me! I wish it was I!” she cried, passionately, “I wish I had drank the stuff in stead of you. O, to end it all! To end everything—the pain, the longing, the suffering—and. be at peace. Oh!” she dropped her head on her breast with a sob of anguish. “At least, you will not live to go to her!” she threw up her head proudly, jealousy leaping hot and red into her eyes. “Listen, child!” he interrupted, gently, lifting a silencing hand. “I have told yon that I shall never go to her unless it is with your entire consent. I have given you my word. What more can I do?” “Yet you cared—you cared! O, you carp now!” She tried in vain to control berself “You know how I regret it all, Marina.” His voice was tense. “Regret!” she cried the one word. Her dark eyes thrilled through Grainger's look, deep into his soul. If he winced, there w'as no outward sign. “I*d stay if it would do you any good, old girl.” His voice was affectionate. “I’d stay glad ly till doomsday!” lie declared, as he stifled a yawn. There is nothing that.bores a thoroughly masculine man more than a scene. “But you know,” he con tinued. awkwardly, “that scenes like this are the continual result. It doesn’t add to your happiness and it makes ine blamed uncom fortable. to say the least!” They had both forgotten, for the moment, the poisoned drink. “Hark! What was that?” She.threw herself from the side of the couch, staring with fas cinated eyes into vacancy, or what seemed vacancy to the man watching her through half-closed lids. Bhe seemed to be in a vast des ert, under a burning sky. The sun stung her fair skin with a blistering heat. Bhe winced and turned to look for shade. At her “GRAINGER, I WAS LYING!- SHE SCREAMED, HYSTERICALLY. feet lay a man—the mere skele ton of a man—in the throes of his last agony. Bhe turned back patiently, to shield him from the scorching sun with the shade of her own body. Bhe knelt care fully in the hot sand and took his fevered, parched face tender ly between her two bandv. Though sunken and attenuated almost beyond recognition, it was yet the face of the man she loved —the face of Grainger. Bhe bent above him pityingly, murmuring broken words of en dearment. He was beyond the sound of her voice—beyond sound of any sort—where she would soon be, 'she told herself sliudderingly, glancing instinct ively at the circling shapes out lined for above against the fiery sky. There was a long silence. The man suddenly stirred, made a harsh, gurgling sound and, with a long, slithering sigh, re laxed to a fixed stillness. She clasped him to her with a heart breaking cry—a cry of utter des olation and despair and—opened her eyes to reality. She was still in her room. The vision had passed. Grainger lay on the couch. A violent fit of trembling had seized him and his teeth chat tered cruelly. Bhe stared at him a moment distractedly, w’onder ingly, but half comprehending, then she turned with a shriek uml threw herself upon him. “Grainger, I was lying!” she screamed, hysterically. “I was lying. There was no poison—no anything but the drink. I want ed to prove to you that I was right. That mental suggestion was everything as I said that last last night before you left. O, can’t you see? I didn’t give you strychnine. Love, love, it was only lemonade—iced, noth ing more. Darling, believe me!” she cried. He slowly recovered his con trol. The twitching of his body gradually ceased. He looked at her dully. “And I am no weak ling, either, by heaven!” he mut tered, thickly. “Dear,” she spoke slowly, “I want you to go to her. I give my consent freely—but never come back—never try to see me again!” As he passed through the door he beheld her for the last time, love and sorrow nnutterable in her passionate eyes but the ten derness of a great renunciation softened their fierce intensity. It was thus that be should see her to his dying day. ABODES HAVE LITTLE HEAT Fsople of Genoa, Italy, Enjoy Tem perature Which Would Chill the Average American. The Genoese are not accus tomed lo the artificial high tem perature which we maintain in America. Their houses, in fact, are constructed to contend en tirely with summer heat and not with winter cold, being all built of stone, with enormously thick walls, floors of marble mosaic, ceilings from 10 to 15 feet high, and inner partition walls nearly two feet thick. A diminutive o|>en fireplace, a ridiculously small oil stove or nothiug but a little charcoal brazier is depend ed on lo warm a vast room which is guinptnous in everything but comfort as we understand tin* word, says the New York Herald. Hotels, even.of the best class, are very slow in being provided with the so-called "central heat ing,” w hile some of the finest old palaces are warmed no better to day than they were when erected centuries ago. Churches, public buildings, theaters and halls make no pretense of being heat ed at all. Buch being the case, and the native people wholly indifferent to a winter temperature which chills an American, the demand for stoves is naturally not very lively among them; but there are some 11,000 or 4.000 foreigners living here, and all fairly well to do, besides the thousands of travelers constantly coming and going, all of whom prefer better beated houses and hotels. The Genoese himself enjoys the out door air and puts on heavier clothing only when lie comes in side his "marble halls.” LOOK FOR MORE ’QUAKES Geologist Asserts Growing Mountain Ranges Are Source of Danger on Pacific Coast. Disquieting to dwellers on the Pacific seaboard, and profoundly interesting to the geologists, are the remarkable conclusions drawn by Dr. C. Davidson, who is au authority on the topic of earthquakes, from the Ban Fran cisco disaster. He says that in the western United Btates we are presented with mountains in four stages of growth. In the •Rockies we have ranges so an cient that they have almost ceased to grow; the Sierra Ne vada another which is approach ing old age; the coast ranges are in the stage of youthful vigorous growth, with the possibility of long and active growth before them; while still further to the west, and not yet risen above the ocean there seems to lie an embryonic range of which the San Francisco and other earthquakes are the birth throes. When the city on the beautiful San Francisco harbor comes to celebrate its millionth anniver sarv its people may be able to confirm or disprove this geologic forecast. IN WHAT STATE?

TBs autumn season Is coming mors and mors to bo recognised as a most r table time for houaepalntlng. There as frost deep la the wood to make trouble for even the best job of paint ing. aud the general seasoning of the summer has put the wood Into good condition la every way. The weather, moreover, is mors likely to be settled ter the necessary length of time to allow all the coats to thoroughly dry. a very important precaution. An old and successful painter said to the writer the other day: “House owners would get more for their money if they would allow their painters to take more time, especially between coate. Instead e< allowing barely time for the snrfaoe to get dry enough not to be lasky/ several days (weeks would net be toe much) should be allowed so that the eoet might set through and through. It la inconvenient, of course, but. If one would suffer this slight Inconvenience, It would add two or three years to ths life of the paint" AU thla is assuming, of courss, that ths paint used is the very best to be had. The purest of white lead and the purest of linseed oil unmixed with any cheaper of the cheap mixtures, often known as “White Lead.’’ and oil which has been doctored with fish oil, benzine, corn oil or other of the adulterants known to the trade l are used, all the precautions of the skilled painter are useless to prevent the ' cracking and peeling which make houses unsightly In a year or so and, therefore, make painting bllla too fre quent and costly. House owner should have his painter bring the in gredients to the premises separately, white lead of some well known relia ble brand and linseed oil of equal qual ity and mix the paint jußt before ap plying It. Painting need not be ex pensive and unsatisfactory if the old painter’s auggestions are followed. CIVILIZATION’S FRIEND. The Iren Horse Spreads Knowledge and Progress. We have yet two decades to wait be fore we can celebrate the centennial anniversary of the birth of the railroad, says “The World’s Progress,” In Four- Track News for July. It Is a wonder ful record, that eighty years of rapid transit development, it has revolu tionized the world commercially, so cially and Intellectually. The Atlantic and the Pacific have become near neighbors; the inaccessible and there fore valueless plains of the West have been penetrated and brought Into touch with the markets of the world: New York and Chicago, that in the pio neer days were weeks away from one another, are now but eighteen hours apart. The railroad has entered Jerusalem: It has pierced darkest Africa; It is crossing the sands of Sahara; It scales the side of Vesuvius; it bridges the most forbidding chasms and tunnels through mountains and under rivers. The whistle of the locomotive is the. voice of progress! The rails over which it runs are steel bands that bind nations into a great commercial broth erhood. The rapid development of the world along every desirable line since the lo comotive became a factor In human af fairs. Is all the argument necessary to prove the railroad the greatest of all civilizing Influences. A comparison or the past eighty years with the thou sands of centuries preceding furnishes an eloquent proof of the far-reaching, uplifting, industrial, ethical and edu cational value of the railroad. First Blght of Pike’s Peak. Writing from Goodnight, 'Sexus, to the Colorado Springs Gazette, Donald Hewitt says: Pika first saw the "grand peak" or “great snow mountain,” as he Invari ably calls It, at 2 o’clock on the after noon of November 16, 1806. He was then marching along the Arkansas river a half dozen miles or less below tho point at which the Purgatory or I .as Animas river flows into tho Ar kansas. This Is not far from the cen ter of Bent county, Colorado. It is exactly eighty miles in an air line from Pueblo and 120 miles from the peak. A study of Pike's Journal with a good map at hand will determine the po sition at that time with considerable accuracy. The stages of his journey on the days preceding November 15th can be easily followed. The "two dry creeks, and very high points of rocks” passed early in the morning of the 15th are to be found on the map. Nor Is there the slightest doubt that "the fork discovered before evening on the south side bearing 8. 20 degrees W., is the Purgatory or Las Animas river. So far as I know no one has yet at tempted to locate the hill to which Pike refers when he says: "When our small party arrived on the hill, they with one accord gave three cheers to the Mexican mountains.” Here is a problem to be worked out by some good eltlsen of Las Animas. Died for His Hors*. As accident showing such devotion of a man for a dumb animal that he was willing to give bis life to save it, happened at Hartford. Connecticut wben Frank Daly, aged twenty-eight, was drowned in the Park river In res cuing his horse. Chief, which, attached to a heavy road wagon, had toppled over an embankment. The horse backed over an embankment and with the wagon sank to the bottom of the river, which is deep at this point. Daly sprang In with a knife and stuck to his task at tho bottom of the muddy water, trying to cut the harness. Man and beast were rising to the surface when tho man waa struck in the head by tho plunging horse’s hoofs, and he sank. somethin' mighty strange!
