A subscriber requests the publica tion of the following: "I am willing to risk my reputation as a public man," wrote Edward Hiaes to the Liverpool Mercury, "if the worst cas of smallpox cannot be cured in three days, simply by the use of cream of tartar. One ounce of cream of tar tar dissolved at intervals when cold is a certain, never-failing remedy. It has cured thousands, never leaves a mark, never causes blindness and avoids tedious lingering."Canton Saturday Roller. A Pointer for Women. Queen Alexandra's laces, linens and silks are perfumed by a method which almost any woman can copy. The drawers in which they are kept are lined with white paper, strewn with rose petals. On this is placed a layer of the fabrics to be scented, over that a layer of rose leaves, ind so on in alternation until the drawer is filled.

"The man never breathed that thinks more of his children than me," says Freem Doud as he sat in|front of his log cabin and watched two boys playing among the stumps. "There ain'tQany thing I wouldn't do to jolly them up, bless their hearts! I'd fall out of" a tree on the roof of my head just to cheer 'em up. Since their ma kicked the bucket, I've got to hustle to keep 'em feeling cheerful sometimes, you bet. I ought to be off in the woods right now hanging up a few deers, but I can't boar being away from the kids." "Why don't you let the boys visit the neighbors while you are away?" I asked. "A neighbor never lived that's good enough to look after my boys a minute, mister. I ain't going to have them running loose all over hell's creation while their dad can live up to the father racket. No sir." Two months later I met Freem in Slabtown as he entered a store with a tall woman leanington his arm. He winked gleefully at me as we saluted and soon followed me outside. "See that shemale!" he asked in triumphant confidence. "She is my wifemarried her two weeks coming tomorrow. You see, I've got two boys growing up, and I finally figured it out that they needed a woman's eye to bring 'em up right. I'd do anything for my kids, even to marrying for their sakes. I have been leary of stepmothers as a steady diet, but I finally caught onto a blue-eyed woman with a wart on her nose that wasn't good and kind to children?- No, sir you never did." I assured him I never did, then asked the whereabouts of his be loved sons. "Well, you. see. my wifeyou understandsaid she didn't like the idea of starting into the honeymoon business with a house full of kids under foot so, you see, we shipped them off to Wisconsin to live with an aunt of mine.

In the marble room of the Senate is a blackboard, upon which each morn ing different colored chalks indicate the temperature and general weather conditions prevailing throughout the country. Senator Hale, while talking a constituent, unconsciously backed np against this board, and a little later started for the Senate chamber, covered with green, red, yellow and white dust. "Why, Senator, ypu are a sick man, and ought to be in bed," said Senator Dubois, with anxiety in his voice. "What's the matter with me?" asked the Maine man, passing his hand over his forehead. "Any man," explained the Idaho Sen ator, laughing and tapping the other on the back, "who is as cold between the shoulders and as hot over the kid neys as you are certainly-needs a doc' .or."Baltimore Herald. BIRDS THAT PLANT TREES. Nature Has Plan for the Perpetuation of Forests. An old-time Arizona woodchopper. says the bluejays have planted thou sands of trees now growing all over Arizona. He says these birds have a habit of burying small seeds in the ground with their beaks, and that they frequently pinion trees and bury large numbers of the email pine nuts in the ground, many of which sprout and grow. He was walking through the pines with an eastern gentle man a short time ago, when one of these birds flew from a tree to the ground, stuck his bill into the earth and quickly flew away. When told what had happened the eastern man was skeptical, but the two went to the spot and with a knife blade dug out a sound pine nut from a depth of about an inch and a half. Thus it will be seen that nature has her own plan for forest perpetuation. Los Angeles' Wants. The trouble with Los Angeles, saya the Los Angeles Times, is that we want so many things, and we want them all at oncegood telephone ser vice, more shade, clean streets, more paved streets, wires of all kinds un derground, bigger water mains, more school houses, another sewer to the sea, no third rail in the streets, a convenient hall, a speed ordinance that is" strictly enforced, fewer sa loons, no bucket shops and no pool rooms, less oil on "the streets, less dust and a few other things too numerous catalogue.

He was a Highland^ piper at the battle of Waterloo.^ When he married hie first wife, who was a spinster and owned a farm, he drove to her place with a blind horse, found her in a shed milking a cow, held an umbrella over her while he proposed in a manner most unconventionalfor it was raining and wedded her next day. She died when he was ninety-six years old. Five years ago he wedded a widow who was sixty years old. The Ruler of Morocco. The Sultan of Morocco is described as a progressive young man whose misfortunes are quite undeserved. Though he grew up in the seclusion of an Oriental palace and had no real education from the western poin* of view, he has thrown off the cramping influence of early training and is keen to acquire knowledge. Europeans who have visited his court have been struck by his unusual intelligence, and they say he actually does possess a rough working acquaintance with the practical side of modern science. Lady Curzon's Bloodhound. Lady Curzon, the Indian vicereine, is exceedingly fond of dogs. In her kennels some time ago there was a beautiful bloodhound pup which had been presented to her by a native prince. A friend of Lady Curzon's who was being taken around the ken nels the other day asked the blood hound's name. "Oh, that dog's name is Morgan," replied Lady Curzon. "What made you call him Morgan?" asked, the unsuspecting visitor. "Because," replied the vicereine, "he never loses a scent" "Robbery," a New Magazine. A magazine has been started In Belgium to chronicle the doings of the criminal world. It is called "Rob- bery," and will appear quarterly. It will contain accounts of famous thefts in days gone by side by side with descriptions of the most up to date methods employed by thieves, burglars, etc., though it is not to be, so far as known an organ of the trade. Space will be also devoted to illustrating the various tools and in stnr nts used by the craft on noc turnal excursions in town and coun try. Dogma. In a public school in Sandusky on^ of the teachers in the primary grade gave the word "dogma" to her class as a basis for a sentence-building exercise. As the class looked puz zled, the teacher repeated the word, putting the accent rather prominent ly on the second syllable. But the term seemed beyond the mental grasp of the children. None of them could produce anything. Time was called, and a wide-awake little girl snapped her fingers and read: "Our dog ma has three little puppies. -Selected. WUt SILVER VAnnMHEK Although every housekeeper is psm jilly aware of the tendency of silver ware to part with its brilliancy and become tarnished when exposed to or dinary atmospheric influences, many do not know that the cause of the tarnishing is the action of sulphur in the air. Unless frequently cleaned, the surface of silver will become black in the course of a few months. The best way to keep silver bright, without the necessity of cleaning, is said to be to coat the surface with a thin solution of collodion varnish di luted with spirits of wine. After be ing applied with a soft brush the spir it evaporates, leaving a thin, glossy, transparent film on the polished sur face. Warm water removes the var nish. Tarnished silver may be re stored by careful rubbing with a soft cloth wet with dilute .solution of potas sium cyanide one ounce to a quart of water,followed by rinsing. A WIRE FENCE CONVENIENCE. A wire fence always presents to those who understand the "power" of its barbs a formidable appearance, and, in truth, is an unpleasant affair to cross, either by climbing over or crawling under, or between the strands.

The shining metallic dust that is used to produce the effect of gilt and bronze in wall-papers, printing, lith ography, mirror and picture frames, fresco painting, and so on, has its prin cipal source in the bronze-powder fac tories at Furth, in Bavaria, where this industry has been highly specialized.
