Personal explanation from the Ross ville, Kas., News: Those who have watched us wobble about, the streets this week like a foundered horse should not attribute the fact to an oyerdo:-e of green corn. Neither is it because we feel proud and haughty and puffed up about something. The fact is we hav renewed our experiments with a large and healthy consignment of rheumatism. We have distributed the supply over various parts of our anatomy. It seem? to be doing better in our feet than else where, however. We cannot account for this unless it be a desire to operate in the largest 5rea possible. Another promi-ing patch is located in two sec tions of the vertebrae near the back stis vender buttons It shows signs of great activity and at times aches first rate. But the place that is filled with sponta - , rprise and stirs up the fiercest pan8 oi retnorsu and wild, unavailing regret is the thumb on our right hand. So much rheumatism has been crowd ed into this thumb that it has waxed fat and sticks up into the atmosphere like a niokle's worth of boiotjua. By having a friend earnestly grasp this hand in a hearty "glad to-se-you" way we hae been enabled to jump nine feet straight up and yell for tfudris H. Priest in a thrilling and attractive manner. This thumb also has a ' cute way of wandering off into the lining of the sleeve when we put on our coat, thereby causing us to talk incoherently and fer vently discuss strange and unearthly subjects. Our experiments with thi- interest it and diabolical disease covers a period of several years during which time we have collected much valuable data, also fl ira and faunaln the shape of rheutua'ic dis couragers. Smartweed tea, dog f nm 1 decoction, --ugar coated moss agate pill-, St. Jack's instantaueous hair remover, hyosceamu3 hemavopataterinus pilly popodituusf jthlio extract, are all good festilizers an m iy bo used with itupuni tyand a red fimnel rag.

A shipload of horses and mares has been sent from this country for breeding "purposes, with the idea of grading up the Filipino ponies, and, at the same time, keeping a supply of highly bred A merican horses, so that breeders can got stallions to continue and broaden this work ofnimrovement. It is interesting to note that1 accord: ing to The World's Work, this is the first time our government has taken tiny part in horse breeding. And even now it may not proper to say that it is taking a part, for the present experiments are made by the civil government of the Philippines, and the expenses are paid out of the Philippine revenues. If the experiments succeed, however, it will n t be wonderfal if the federal govern ment should establish a breeding plant of its own, so that cavalry and artillery horses of uniform types could be ob tained. France, Germany, Austria and Russia breed horses for military use.and also to foster horse breeding. The brood mares were all bought in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky, while some work and brood mares for the agti culiural exprimeul stations were bought in Missouri. The immediate purpose is to breed Filipino stallions to American mares and American and Arab stallions to Filipino mares, keeping, however, a supply of strictly American mares and horses as a kind of parent stock, on which later to draw. That the progeny as individuals will be an improvement over the native hordes is tolerably sure; but the experiment can not be considered entirely successful un less the mingling of blood, aided by in fusions of Arab blood, results in a repro 'during type of sturdy horses suitable for work on the farms and fit also for use In the army and constabulary. This can, no doubt, be accomplished in time. TREATMENT OF OBESITY. Great Caution Should Be Exercised in the Effort to Reduce the Flesh.

It is inijor;ant for the physician to row. before beginning treatment, what .3 the cause of the obesity whether it is :-.n inherited tendency to put on flesh, or unwise eating; and eating may be un .vise as regards either quantity or qual ity. The patient's habits must be known, and his or her idiosyncrasies as to various articles of diet; and the kind of obesity must also be taken into con sideration whether the plethoric or the anaemic form. In short, it is the pa tient that must be treated, and not the disease. It is possible here to indicate only the broad principles of treatment which it is understood must be modified more or less in almost every case. The treat ment is dietetic and hygienic, for there is no drug capable of reducing flesh that will not at the same time probably re duce strength. If the person is a large eater the total quantity of food must be gradually reduced by decreasing the size of each meal a little especially of breakfast. The eating of salads and green vegetables is advisable, but the starchy foods, such as potatoes and cereals, should be very sparingly used. For the same reason bread must be in great part given up. Desserts and sweets of all kinds, especially candy, should be absolutely forbidden. Fat. strange as It may seem. Is less In jurious than sweets indeed, it should never be entirely excluded from the diet, although it would be better to eat of It (in the form of butter or fat meat) very sparingly. Skim milk or buttermilk may be taken; and so may eggs and meat, the latter once a day only. Tea and coffee may be drunk, but not-with meals. Water should be taken only be tween and before meals not while eat ing. Alcoholic beverages must not be used at all. Exercise In the open air, preferably walking several miles a day, Is imperative. AN INSOLUBLE MYSTERY. Tickled Pork Disaster That Befell Two Pennsylvania Dutchmem, Hans and Fritz. Gov. Pennypacker of Pennsylvania was revwing the state militia at Get tysburg. A young staff officer described to him in a low voice some unimportant error that had been made, relates the New York Tribune. "But as to the cause of the error, sir." he said, "that is a mystery." Gov. Pennypacker smiled. "If it is a mystery." he said, "it is like the pickled pork disaster that befell two Pennsylvania Dutchmen. Hans and Fritz. "These two men bought a lot of pickled pork in partnership. They put it in a barrel, and stored it away in the cellar of Hans' home. Now, Hans, though a Pennsylvania Dutchman, was dishonest. The combination is rare. "Well, the morning after the deal in pickled pork, Fritz met Hans on the road. " 'Good morning. Hans,' he said. 'Is there any news about our pickled pork?' " 'Fritz.' Hans answered, gravely, 'there is news, and bad news. A strange thing has happened. It is a mystery to me.' " 'Well, Hans, tell me all about it said Fritz. 'Fritz, my friend, it was like this.' said Hans. 'This morning I went down cellar to get a piece of pork for my breakfast, and I put my hand down in the barrel, and I felt around-in the brine, and there was no pork there. It was all gone all gone completely. So then I turned up the barrel, and, as true as you are alive, the rats had eaten a hole clean through the bottom and dragged the pork all out' "Fritz was amazed and stunned. " 'Why didn't the brine run out of the hole?' he asked. " 'Ah. Fritz,' said the other, 'that's the mystery. That's the mystery.' " Oranges Pilled with Jelly. Take half a dozen oranges that are perfect; make a hole at the stem end about half an inch in diameter; take a teaspoon and remove the pulp, and then soak the oranges In cold water for an hour; then scrape with the spoon until they are smooth inside; rinse with cold water, and drain on a cloth and put them in ice box. Prepare pink and clear orange juice, with the juice of two lemons added. Fill half of them with the pink, the other half with clear jelly, and when they are set wipe clean and cut each orange in four quarters. Heap them in i pretty glass dish for the table. Household. Sweet Plum Pickle. Wash and prick large egg or blue plums. Make a syrup in the propor tion of five pounds of sugar to a pint of vinegar; spice to taste with cloves, cinnamon and mace, bring to a boil, skim and drop in the fruit. As soon as the plums are scalded through take out the fruit and pack in jars. Cook the syrup until quite thick and pour over the plums. Seal. If during the first month the plums show any signs of fermenting, which they seldom do, set the cans, uncovered, in a kettle of cold water, bring to a boil, then seal again. N. Y. Herald.

WRITE FOR EXPLANATORY BOOKLET. GAMBLING GAME IN CUBA. j Played with a Ball, and Is Very Eac i citing, But the Bets Are the Main Thing. Henry C. Gauss, of this city, who ac companied the congressional party to Havana on its recent trip, says a Wash ington letter in the Boston Transcript, gives this account of the now celebrated game of the jai alai: " 'A-r-r-r.' 'A-r-r-r.'A-r-r-r.' 'A-r-r-r, in a crescendo and diminuendo like the sound of waves on a beach, the audience at the jai alai in Havana accompanies the 'cricli. 'crick. of the ball as it flies from racquet to wall and wall to racquet, with a steady volume of sound, topped with tumultuous breakers of shouts at the termination of each rally." began Mr. Gauss in his description. "On three sides are blank and black- oner, walls: on the remaining side of the parallelogram are rows of seats at the level of the playing floor, and above these are tiers of stalls, and finally the upper balconies of boxes. On the mar ble floor of the court four players, two in blue blouses and two in white, are in incessant motion. The blouses are stained with perspiration and when a player who has missed the ball turns his face to the side wall in an exagger ated display of chagrin, the moisture from his torso streaks the slated sur face. "Tremendous activity, a steadiness of eye and muscle that no amateur can hope to equal dexterity that only those who have pit ed peltoa from childhood can hope to Imitate, evoke an interest on the part of the spectators which is intense. The skillful plays stimulate enthusiasm. The feeling that a stake is at hazard with every stroke, that there Is mosey on the game. Is what makes the cigar rollers and cab drivers of Havana cry out In approval or cha grin at the turns of the play. "It Is not the professional skill of the winners that occasions the rush of the spectators at the close of each game or partido.' but a desire to be early at the window where the bets are cashed. The big room at the level of the playing surface Is packed with the col Iarless, and. frequently, coatless, pa trons of the game who have made a fortunate choice of the blue or the white. It mast be acknowledged that exciting as the game is. and marvelous as are its feats of dexterity, the interest palls before the evening's entertainment is over, when there is no gambling on the result. Ennui follows close oa the exit of novelty. "But if the visitor in Havana does as the Romans do and suceumbs to the gambling fever, which is a qulekly vivifying microbe in the veins ef all humanity, the interest in the game be comes terrific. He joins in the chorus which eemes from the lower benches and elaps and shouts voeiferotisly at every feat of dexterity. This is the , way one bete at th jai alai: There is a counter on the floor. A soft and in sinuating page, who speaks New York, suggests that it is there for the con venience of those who wish to make small bets on the result of the games. "It is a wire-grated, most business appearing counter, and one learns that it has indeed a government end to its operations. If one invests in a ticket of a face value of $2. this costs $2.10. of which the extra dime goes to the gov ernment. One further learns that if one is so sagacious as to pick the winning team he will have for his ticket $4. $6 or $8. according to the amount which has been wagered against his side. "The horsey man advises you at once that it is nothing less than a straight Paris mutual and one ascertains that the house, the benevolent jai alai. have ten per centum on the gross receipts for their trouble. Then, a man recollects that if he were in Concord. Mass.. in Washington. D. C. he would pass this counter by as the seat of an iniquity. But in Havana, where all airs are balmy, with no northwesterly winds to stim ulate a conscience, he buys a ticket and applies medicines to the gambling fever by losing. , "Thus we have open, public gambling sanctioned by the authorities, and a source of revenue to the government. Many people at hozzz feel that the American occupation is responsible for the sanction of the institution. I am told that the granting of the concession was all but completed by -tbe former government; that it was one of the acts which came under a general agreement to complete and that the refusal to ef fect this formal sanction would have been regarded as bad faith and possibly an occasion of friction. "In Havana, which has easily revived traditions of bull and cock lighting, this game, which affords certain hours of gambling at intervals during the week, does not seem so bad as it would here. The grim and ghastly 'turf ex changes' of New Orleans, or the tragic 'bucket shops' of northern cities are far more vicious, though they are safe guarded by a keener public sentiment concerning the evils of gambling. To mas and Pedro and Ygnaclo would be wiser if they disposed of the pesos lost at the jai alai In the development of Cuba libre, but the businesslike way in which they go at their gambling indi cates that if a government outlet for the gambling spirit was not provided there would be many private safety valves which might not be so well arranged as the jai alai and which might furnish other than congenital criminals for the spotless penitentiary which is conduct ed down there by one of Gen. Wood's pupils. However, time will put an end to the jai alai. Gambling is folly, and all peoples realize it sooner or later." Inconsiderate. "No." said Mr. Dustin Stax. "I ara not going to associate with Bliggins any more. He is too overbearing." "But he hasn't nearly as much mon ey as you have." "That's the point. I am one of these people who think it is a disgrace to die rich and he is constantly throwing hia poverty into my face." Washing ton Star.
