Being dissatisfied with the results obtained at other schools, I enrolled at the Aaker's Business College, Fargo, N. D., and to say "I am pleased with the results" is expressing it mildly.

The principal of one of Washington's high schools relates an incident in connection with the last commence ment day of the institution mentioned. A clever girl had taken one of the principal prizes. At the close of the exercises her friends crowded about her to offer congratulations. "Weren't you awfully' afraid you wouldn't get it, Hattie," asked one, "when there were so many contest ants?" "Oh, no," cheerily exclaimed Hattie, "because I knew that when it came to English composition I had 'em all skinned alive!" In the Wedding Month. Bishop Olmsted of Colorado was talking at a dinner party in Denver about June weddings. "Jane is a lovely month," he said, "and that it should be the month of all months for weddings is a fact easily understood. "I was amused by the remark* a jew eler made the other day. "The jeweler said that at this sea son it is a very common thing to see a well dressed, handsome, intelligent looking young man come into his shop and say, in a painfully nervous way: 'Um, ah, er—er—ah, er-ha, um—' "In this contingency the jeweler simply calls to his clerk: 'Get out that tray of engagement rings, Jackson.'" DODDS KIDNEYS PIILS 4 frihu Educational Institutions That Arc a Great Credit to the Nation. A Geneva is "only one of tUe uni versities of little Switzerland. Basel, founded in lG40 Lousann', founded as an academy in 1537, and as a university in 1890 Zu rich, founded in 1S32 Bern, found ed in 1834 Freiburg, founded in 18S9, have each secured a high educational place, though in its historic iuipressiveness Geneva is unique. But Geneva and her five companions, says Harper's Magazine, are noble illustrations of the spirit and power of democ racy. Their support is derived largely from the cantons in which they are located. Although the constitution of 1848 authorized the federal government to erect and to maintain a polytechnic school and university, the univer sity has not been established. The cantons support their univer sities with a willingness which is as great as obtains in the states of the American union touching their respective slates universi ties. The University of Zurich is maintained by a commonwealth of but 350„000 people, and within an area of less than 700 square miles. Basel, with a population of less than 100,000, supports its university. They are examples of the power of an enlightened de mocracy which interests itself in the highest education. This in terest is not confined, either, to the cause of liberal learning, for the technical schools of Zurich are among the best of the world. Bugs, Modern and Antique. Because many antiques are ad mirable is no reason for denying the merit of modern rugs. There are more rugs of high quality be ing woven to-day than ever before, and this is due principally to the fact that there is abetter market for them than ever before. The United States alone imports $4, 000,000 worth a year—afoout $2. 500,000 before the duty is paid. No wonder that the shah of Per sia nurses the rug:weavingindus try tenderly, bestowing orders and honorable rewards on suc cessful rng merchants and inflict ing the most severe penalties for the use of aniline dyes or anything calculated to bring Persian rugs into disrepute.—Country Life in America. Extraordinary Golf Drive. It is stated by the secretary of the Weston-super-Mare club that when playing on that course a few days ago Mr. Douglas Robinson accomplished an extraordinary drive. The distance from the six teenth tee to the green is 305 yards, and there is a bunker just guarding the green, but Mr. Rob inson is said to have carried the bunker with his drive—that is, to have driven his ball so that it went over the bunker before ir touched the ground. In the or dinary way 160 yards or 170 yards represents the carry of a very fine drive. The longest drive (carry and run combined) on record is generally understood to be one done by Mr. Edward Blackwell at St. Andrews some years ago, when he drove his ball 366 yards. Under Woman's Sway. Between the mountains of In dia and Persia is a powerful tribe among whom an extraordinary custom prevails. Woman's rights have apparently received fuil rec ognition, for the ladies of the tribe can choose their own hus bands. All a single woman has to do when she wishes to change-her state is to send a servant to pin a handkerchief to the hat of the man on whom her fancy 'j.ights. and he is obliged to marry her, un less he can show that he is too poor to purchase her at the price her father requires.

Rubbing a piece of amber.with a woolen rag generates electricity proven by the fact that it will pick up pieces of paper and cotton-fibre. The same thing can be dope with a rubber comb and a few other mineral or vegetable substances. It has been the aim of scientists for years to find some liquid prep? aration which, when applied to the human body, would penetrate first through the skin, then through the muscles and finally to the very bone. Electricity to be subsequently gen erated through friction with the hands, it being a well recognized fact that electricity so generated and applied, would strengthen the nerves, remove inflammation and ease all pain. Max R. Zaegel, a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, established as a chemist in Sheboy gan, Wis., for the last 23 years, has discovered this long sought secret Iti consists of a mix ture of vegetable and mineral oils forming an amber colored liquid of pleasant odor and taste which, when used as directed, restores vitality and strength and gives prompt re. lief to all pain.

Bliss Perry, the new occupant of the chair of English' at Harvard, said of bathos recently: "A good example of bathos came within the experience of a Boston clergyman. A Boston fisherman had lost his lit tle son, a boy of four, his only child, and the poor fellow was well nigh be side himself with grief. The clergy man went to see him. "As the clergyman talked to him, the bereaved father wept. His grief in tensified itself. The clergyman, be fore such parental suffering, was more and more moved. "And suddenly, rocking himself two and fro, with tears trickling down his brown cheeks, the fisherman said in a voice hoarse and broken with emo tion: "Do ye think, sir, I could have the little beggar stuffed?'"

Away out near the farthest point on the American side of Behring sea a line of telegraph poles, erected in 1866, is still standing, sound and strong. Their permanency, says the Elec trical Review, is due, as explained by a recent scientific visitor to that locality, to the fact "that they are not subject to the rav ages of tropical insects." Overlooking that spot stands a high, conspicuous, wireless tele graph tower erected by Gen, Greelv in 1904. For 38 years the old line has re mained dumb. From the new tower electric signals flash and pulsate 1,000 miles out to sea, calling to ships whose masts are tipped'with the newT St. Elmo's fire, and far across Siberian wastes, studded with mountain peaks, bearing a message from the new liberty-loving world to the liberty-longing millions of an cient empires. The world awaits the answer. Languages in the Balkans. Too many languages are spoken in the Balkans. A traveler in that region writes of the babel: "Turk ish, Bulgarian, Serbo-Croatian, Roumanian, Greek, Armenian, Albanian, Kulzo-Wallachian, Chingeni, the language of the gyp sies Spaniole. the language of the Jews of Spanish or Portuguese descent, and the language spoken by the German, Austrian,, Rou manian and Russian Jews. Add to this Arabic, Persian and Syr ian, largely spoken in Constanti nople Italian, on the northeast coast of tlie Adria Russian, in the northeastern part of Roumania various Austro-Hungarian. idi: oms spoken in Bosnia and Herze govina and the Caucasian lan guages of the Circassians and Georgians." Not one Of these lan guages is of common use. Any Old Tipple. "The Alaska Indians,'* said R. B. Bunce, of Seattle, "are slaves to their appetite for ardent spir its. I have never known one who wouldn't sell his clothes to get a drink of whisky. It is a fact of common knowledge up there that they will drink almost anything that has the faintest trace of al cohol. I have seen them drink red ink as though it were a most de licious beverage, and they will gulp down perfumery, extracts and "any sort of bitters they can procure. Even such a deadly dose as wood alcohol does not frighten them in the, least, and they really prefer it to any other intoxicant." —Washington Post. Lovers' Lane in New York.

When Prof. Stillman of Sevens in stitute gave a dinner to two friends, at which most of the viands were made artificially by chemical means, he had small idea of the furore his efforts would produce. But he has received hundreds of letters asking how differ ent dishes were produced—so many that he has not had time to answer many of them. The chemical processes which he employed were some of them simple and some quite complicated. To make vanilla ice cream by artificial means, for instance, the alchemist took some triple refined cottonseed oil, placed! it in a centrifugal machine which revolv ed at a velocity of 3,000 revolutions a minute. A beautiful emulsion was thereby produced, which was then frozen, chemically, of course, The fla vor was obtained by the addition of vanilla, glucin and nitro-benzol. They say that ice cream composed as above is sold in many Southern states where cottonseed oil is more plentiful and consequently cheaper than milk or cream. It is far from harmful, tastes gobd, and does not melt as quickly as the genuine ice. Driven to the Suburbs. The rapacity of landlords in New York city is driving tenants to the suburbs.

Tremendous Itching Over Whole Body —Scratched Until Bled—Won derful Cure by Cuticura. "Last year I suffered with a tremen dous itching on my back, which grew worse and worse, until it spread over the whole body, and only my face and hands were free. For four months or BO I suffered torments, and I had to scratch, scratch, scratch, until I bled. At night when I went to bed things got worse, and I had at times to get up and scratch my body all over, until I was as sore as could be, and until I suffered excrutiating pains. They told me that I was suffering from eczema. Then I made up my mind that I would' use the Cuticura Remedies. I used them according to instructions, and very soon indeed I was greatly re lieved.

This is also the reason why thousands upon thousands of women are corre sponding with Mrs. Pinkham, daughter in-law of Lydia E. Pinkham, at Lynn, Mass. To her they can confide every detail of their illness, and from her great knowledge, obtained from years of experience in treating female ills, Mrs. Pinkham can advise sick women more wisely than the local physician.
