Thirty-five years ago this sensational bit of fic tion exercised a greater influence on the character of the average boy of 10 to 15 than father, mother and the Ten Commandments. It was devoured by millions on both sides of the water. "Jack" was the ideal of the youth of all English-speaking countries. I see that it has been started again for a long run in a periodical that claims 1,250,000 circulation. Bracebridge Hemyng died in 1901. He wrote not only "Jack Harkaway," but forty-odd volumes of readable fiction, yet you will look in vain for his name in "John- eon's," "Appleton's," "Chambers'," the "International" and the "Standard" cyclopedias, and in the "Ridpath Li brary of University Literature."

Soldiers Accord Popular Author a Magnificent Demonstration. One day while in Norway an oppor tunity was given to an American trav eler to see that the name of Bjorn stjerne Bjornson means much to all Norwegians. "A battalion of Nor wegian and Swedish cavalry, infantry and artillery, between 3,000 and 4,0u0 strong, was returning from its maneu vers to the post in Christiania," he says. "In passing Aulestad the gen eral in command sent his adjutant in advance to get Bjornson's permission to give him an ovation. With his fam ily and guests assembled about him on the veranda the monumental figure stood with bared head to receive the military greeting. As each regiment passed \n review below, presenting arms as to their chieftain, there went up a deafening shout of personal salutation from each of the soldiers, who then joined in singing the nation al hymn, to whose author they were offering this spontaneous salute. There was the unique spectacle of a man in private life, being accorded a military demonstration by the nation's army which a king might envy." RELIEF FOR RUSSIAN WOMEN. Newly Enacted Law a Blessing to Abused Peasants' Wives. By a newly enacted Russian law a peasant's wife, on showing to the dis trict judge destruction that she Is habitually ill treated by her husband, or that he will not support her, and makes her the drudge for his own sup port, can demand a separate passport, with which she is at liberty to leave her oppressor and earn a living else where. Hitherto there was no possible redress or release for the long-suffer ing victim so long as it was obligatory that the wife's name was entered in the husband's passport and papers of legitimate. Anyone at all intimately acquainted with village life In Russia will readily appreciate the relief this brings to tens of thousands of peasant women who are the grievously abused domestic slaves and beasts of burden to their drunken and brutal conjugal proprietors..

Work it quickly for a few minutes, then wipe off all the paraffin and dirt and treat it to a little more clean paraffin. Wipe it again, apd after the application of a very little of the ordinary lubricating oil it will be ready for use. People often shirk the trouble of thoroughly cleaning their machines like this, but a clogged and "heavy" machine under this treat ment will become like new, and its easy working will be an ample reward for any trouble incurred. Flimflammed Again? Has the alert J. Pierpont Morgan been fooled again? In consequence of the announcement that He would place on exhibition a collection of car pets that formerly belonged to the royal house of Spain several Spanish newspapers have asked for an investi gation, as before the reign of Alfonso XII. the royal collection was complete. The Heraldo of Madrid Insinuates that Pierpont Morgan has been the victim of unscrupulous dealers, who, it al leges, have palmed oft imitations on the multimillionaire. Queen Victoria's Love of Flowers. Queen Victoria was a great flower lover from the days when a toddling child she made daisy chains on the lawns of Kensington palace, and per haps wore them with more pride than she ever did her jewels. When she paid her one and only visit to Spain, Queen Christina asked, "Is there any thing the queen is especially fond of?" "Yes, flowers," was the answer, and so flowers in lavish profusion decorated the streets, the houses, the railway station, and the palace. A Lingual Phenomenon.

"Not unless you's in meetin', Brer Saul." "Umh! I ain't drive no mules in meetin' en I kain't take de meeting ter de mules. Dat Baptis' 'ligion ain no 'ligion fu' a mule driver.

Willits Dealer In 38,000 acres of good land for sale. Correspondenc Solicited BEMIDJI, MINN, AN AUSTRALIAN OLD-TIMER. Writer Tells of Droughts That Have Devastated the Country. Rolf Boldrewood nas been writing on "Draughts in Australia," inspired thereto by the fearful devastation wrought in a large section of the country. He is an authority on the subject, for It was a long drought in the 60s that reduced him from af fluence to penury, changed him from the wealthy owner of many flocks and herds into a. stipendiary magistrate and coroner and led to story-telling as a supplementary source of income. His recollections cover seventy years. He remembers when flour was $500 a ton in Sydney in the 30s in conse quence of a drought. The Sydney boarding schools, at one of which he was being educated, sent their pupils home, being iio longer able to bear the cost of feeding them. After a re view of the droughts of seven decades he reaches the conclusion that "all droughts and records" of dry years fail in comparison with this one of 1902." Returns to the Fold. Rev. George K. McDonald, the Bap tist minister, who gave up his church in Astoria Long Island, and started a saloon, has found the venture unprof itable and given it up.

He may be restored after a time, but not just yet, it Is thought. For Those With Stomach Habit. A Philadelphia baker is authority for the assertion that the latest, fad of dyspeptics is bread made with sea water, instead of fresh water. "It has a saltier taste," he says, "than we are accustomed to, but it is very palatable. In fact, he who likes salty things is apt to like it better than the other kind of bread. A physician asked me about three morths ago to make some of this bread for his patients. At first I made six loaves a day, but now I make thirty. My sea water comes up to me from Atlantic City three times a week. The dys peptics who buy the bread say it is the only kind they can eat fresh without discomfort." The Prodigy.
