To those not accustomed to it deep i wreathing is somewhat difficult at first. ! but after awhile it became second na ; Hire. It can be learned by everybody ' and should be practiced constantly, for , it plays a very important pan in lifau ' y's programme, says a health author ity. , It is claimed that people who breathe ; naturally always breathe deeply. The i ndian squaw, who has never known a ' 3and around her waist, breathes deeply. . So does the little bab whose lungs lave never been cramped. So does every human being until the time comes when the waist is compressed and the body dwarfed. Deep breathing will reduce the weight f one Is fat and will add flesh If one is thin.- It is the greatest known equalizer. It puts one in prime condition and one will soon be developed normally. In a i short time one will be of correct weight for one's height and one's complexion will be improved. Before trying deep breathing be sure that the atmosphere is good. The air should be free and pure all the time. There should be no useless bric-a-brac around. There should be no velvet or moth-producing hangings. There should be nothing in the room, especially the sleeping-room, that cannot be shaken out once a day or at least once a week. The result of sleeping In a room free of small articles soon become? apparent in the health and complexion of the oc 2Upant. The lungs breathe good air, free from microbes", and there is plenty of breathing space. The rooms are not cluttered up. To get the best results, sleeping or waking, have good cheer, pure air and learn to breathe deeply. To breathe deeply study the art cf filling the lungs with fresh air full. Stand erect. Place the hands upon the hips, throw hack the shoulders and breathe. The process is called abdominal breathing ai.d is taught in all gymnasi iums. In walking be sure to practice deep breathing. Draw in a long, deep breath. Exhale slowly while walking. One can walk four or five steps while one is ex naling and four or five steps more while one is drawing in the breath. Practice Litis and it will become second nature. Practice deep breathing every day. Loosen the clothing, stand erect, throw back the shoulders and inhale a full, deep breath. Try to take ten deep breaths or long breaths as they are ailed. Here are the three positions for prac ticing deep breathing. Stand erect, with both heels together. Place one hand upon the chest and the other hand upon the middle of the back. Take a long, deep breath. Stand erect, with both heels together, and place both hands low upon the chest. Draw ten long, deep breaths. The third position is this: Stand erect, with both hands upon the hips, throw back the shoulders ami take ten long, deep breaths. Begin at the begin ning and try ti-ep breathing over again. tioing through with the three position one aftpr another, breathing deeply all the while. w hen deep hreathing is paintui. as sftpn happens, then there is some -.rouble. It may be organic trouble or it may be merely a muscular ditHculty. In either case it should be treated. long deep breath will cause coughing if the lungs are not strong. Or it will give one a sharp pain in the fide. Asiain a lontr. deep breath will bring on : "crick" in tne back, or thpre are ;ai'.!? in the ribs showing muscular rheumatism. I or organic disease- tin- --rvici-.- of specialists are rr quired, and there- is no need of trying to oft'ec a cure by physical culture alone. But tor muscular difficulties and for nervous twitchings. aim lor eric! r a-'d stitches deep breathing is a cure. If it is painful to take a deep breath then try a hot bath after exercises. After the hot bath rub a little skin food into the skin, massaging the ribs and the lungs. The woman who is muscle bound, as one teacher of physical culture express es it. needs a little vigorous exercise every day and if she cannot get out into the air to obtain it. she should exercise at home. Corn cake. These corncakes, which hail from "Ole Virginny." may find favor farther i.orth. To make them one must cut the kernels from the cob and pound them in a mortar till a sort of corn "milk" results. This is thickened up with egg. sugar and triply-sifted corn starch till a regular cake "batter is evolved. A generous tablespoonful of butter is put into an enameled frying pan and enough batter poured in to just cover the pan. When the edges begin to turn golden brown the cake is "flopped" over with a turner in the deft fashion which the genuine mam my possesses in perfection. A minute later it is laid on a warmed plate, sprinkled with powdered cinnamon and rolled over and over like a jelly roll. Boston Budgei. Apple and Orange Jelly. Use an equal number of apples and oranges. Wash th apples, slice and core them; put them over the fire in the preserving kettle with enough cold water to cover them anl simmer them until they are reduced to a pulp. Pour the apple pulp into a jelly bag to strain out the juice. Measure the juice, and to each pint of apple juice add one of boiled orange juice and a j pound of sugar, and boil them to gether, removing the scum that rises, until a little, coo ed upon a saucer, forms a jelly. Then take the kettle off the stove, let the Jeliy partly cool and pour it into glasses. When cold, seal it up like any other preserve. Boston BudgeL CO IN PRESIDENTIAL YEAR. Salmon of the Pacific Coast Never Known to Bun During the Campaign. The crop of canned salmon on tht Pacific eeast is worth about $12,UUU.0UU a year, and therefore that fish outranks all others in its direct value to mankind, says William E. Curtis, in the Record- Herald. The average crop is 3.5uu.00i! cases of 48 .cans each, or a total oi lt)8,000,000 cans; an average of two to every inhabitant of the United States. An ordinary fish will fill four cans: hence the average annual pack repre sents about 42.000.UU0 fish. This year's pack is a failure, as it every year in which a president of tht United States is elected. The return; are not all in yet. but the best judges estimate a total of only 2.250.000 cases, the smallest crop since J89fj. which wa also a presidential year. It is also a remarkable fact that sal mon run in the greatest abundance in the year in which the president of Hip united Mates is inaugurated. The year following the inauguration only a fair run is expected, while on the third year of the presidential term the fish are out in reasonably large quantities. Dur ing the period of presidential elections the fish are exceedingly shy and scarce. They are only seen in small schools, and keep out of the way of traps, nets and all fishing devices. Dr. Jordan, president of Leland Stanford university, who is a famous ichthyologist and ich thyophagus. says that, assuming the year of the inauguration, which is the bis yter. to yield 100 per cent., the next year may be expected to produce 50 per cent., the third year 65 per cent, and the year of the election 35 per cent. This singular proposition is borne out by the statistics, and is something more than a coincidence. WOMEN BARBERS IN INDIA. Are Liable to Desert an Objection able Customer When He Is Only Half Shaved. In India, where a man's trade is almost always determined by that of his father, the village barbers form a class apart. They always marry in caste; their wives, like themselves, are descended from countless generations of barbers. These women shave and cut hair as skillfully as their husbands, fathers and brothers. Most customers steer clear of them, however, for they have a way of leaving men whom they do not like half shaved and then driving them through the streets of the village with jeers and mockery. It is a terrible disgrace to an Indian to be seen only half shaved. The poor viBager covers his fae with his turban and goes home filled with sorrow and shame. The barbers' wives are most In request as nurses and are useful in attending sick children. When children suffer from any kind of throat complaint, such as bronchitis or a cough, the barber's wife can be depended upon, to cure it. She rubs the child's throat with some mixture made of herbs, applying it with her finger. It is a rough treatment, but singularly effective. The barber's wif has regular custom ers in all the Brahmin widows of the village, wlii) m ist hae their heads shaved twice a month or so. in token of their mouriiiu. Their mother or widow sister of a barber always takes up the pro:'ehs::m of midwife. Very frequently yhf. i- an ar.gr-1 of death in thai '-ipaeiry. b;i:ir both cruel and ig norant.

Without an Instant's Warning Tract- aotc Be;:3t Kills His T.-.iiner. Another distinct type of a zoo rogue is the beast that goes wrong owing to accidental temptation like Shaggy, an exceedingly intelligent, tractable Rocky mountain grizzly who reverted to sav agery and turned mankiller in a twink ling, owing to the unfortunate misstep and fall of his trainer, says McClure's Magazine. Shaggy was a big, handsome, gray old fellow, with a jungle thick coat and a lumbering, awkward gait, and a funny ;winkle that made him particularly adaptable for his part of clown in a re markably trained group of 14 bears. He had come under the hands of his teacher when but a helpless cub. had never lost his liking for caresses, and, although the mightiest beast in the collection, was least suspected of being dangerous. Dnce. when a striped hyena hung to the ankle of his friend, he had run to the rescue, had cut loose right and left with his ponderous forepaws. and had bitten and torn and mangled the ugly beast to death before he could be beaten off. Among his accomplishments: were that of turning admirably grotesque somer saults and the more difficult feat of bal ancing himself on his hind legs on a three-foot wooden sphere. Not a scratch or a scar had his trainer o show for the years of work he had put in with the bear. And yet. without in instant's warning, this same beast attacked and injured his master so that. when rescued, he was semi-demented, and so dreadfully cut and lacerated that the surgeons decided it useless to try to save his life. Right to Kick. "Haven't you any other Saratoga chips than these?" asked the regular :eeder at the lunch counter. "What's the matter with them?" said the waiter. "They're too insipid. I don't mind their being made of basswood. shave! tcross the grain. I'm used to that. But you ought to fry the blamed things in rnmething that's at least a decent imi tation of outier." Chicagu Tribune. SWINDLE WAS MADE EASY. Anti-Liquor Law of Indian Territory Enabled a Sharper to Work Off His Goods. "About half the actions on the crim inal dockets of the territorial courts are whisky cases." said Ben F. White, of Iloldenville. I. T.. according to the New York Sun. "If an attorney likes to de- lend such cases, he wilj find lots of work. "So earnest is the government in its efforts to make the Indian ride in the water agon. that it provides a peni tentiary penalty tor 'introducing, sell ing, giving away or otherwise dispos ing of the contraband. If you're driv ii.g with a companion on a frosty morn ing, you may take a nip from your nerve reserve, but if you pass it to your seat male you are amenable to the law. "Joking? Not a bit of it. In my ca pacity as lawyer I have been retained to defend three young men at next month's assizes for that identical of fense. The charge is that a comrade tendered his flask, and they fell. That comes under the classification of giving away. The white man must be saved along with the Indian. "A few weeks back a tall, red cheeked fellow, wearing a drab ulster, boarded the Katy train's smoker, bound for Muscogee. I was in the next coach to the smoker, also bound for Muscogee. We were then in Kansas. "The tall man carried a basket, well covered, and containing something that clinked. His eyes beamed good-naturedly, and hospitality sparkled in every line of his sunset-tinted face. "He deposited his. basket and mean dered through the cars. When he met a man who looked resentful at the sun baked prairies he sought to cheer him. " 'Fine day. stranger, but a little dry. Goin into the territory?' "'What's it to you?' the dusty travel er asked. " 'Oh. nothing not a thing on earth only I' a bottle of brownish tinge carelessly worked its neck out of the ulster Tm goin' down the line a bit. an I thought as it was some warm an dry. an o long's you can't get nothin' in the territory, maybe ' "The passenger suddenly woke up and became interested " 'What's, the tariff?' " Must a dollar a good half-pint Kentucky goods, guaranteed but. what ever you do. don't open it right here spotter just across yonder there, that's all right thanks, very much. I'll trust to your honor as a gentleman till you know.' "He sold 20 bottles at a dollar apiece, and when he left the train at Muskogee he lit into the loving embrace of three deputy United States marshals. The spot ter had wired ahead. If an officer of the territory Is keener on the scent of any one thing more than another, it's a boot-legger. "A pair of hands grabbed the dealer's basket, and another pair explored the cavernous pockets of the long ulster. There were a few packages left. "'Clot you this time, old man!" ex claimed the leader. " 'Got me! What've 1 been doin? " 'I don't know: the judge will find out.' "'But. say!' "'Say what?' "'Have one on me. "The vender reached for one of his bottles, pulled the cork out. and passed it to the mar-hal who had been doing thr talking. The officer, nothing loath to sample the gos:ds hi the interest of law and order, opened the flask and started a st nam on an investigating course. Bur not for long. Thefeputy threw the hot tie savagely against a wall. " 'What you call that miserable stuff?' he erred. "'Stuff: Whj. it's coffee genuine Mocha: cost :.( opp.tz a pound." The marshal let. him go hut hiscus- tomers are still looking for him." SHAH FEARS THE DENTIST. But He Knows How to Suppress Jokes of His Subjects on the Matter. The shah of Persia has been suffering from toothache of late, but the offending :ooth has not yet been drawn, for the reason that by the time the court den tist, an American, can reach the im perial apartments the imperial propri etor has lost his courage, says a writer In the New York Times. On this account i little joking has been indulged in by certain of his highness' entourage, very much under the rose, of course, though not concealed quite carefully enough for the shah discovered it. and then pro ceeded to get even. The tooth began to give trouble. The dentist was sent for. On his arrival he was not even permitted to look at the tooth. He was about to bow himself out when the shah stopped him and asked to see his case of instruments. He examined each one with interested curi osity and then began asking what cer tain ones were used for. This seemed to interest him still more; he would like illustrations. Could not the dentist show just what was done if some of the gentlemen of the suite stand ing about would serve as subjects. The master of the horse had a strong-look-ng jaw. Would he not allow the den tist to begin with him? The master of the horse had an imme diate engagement, as had every other Dfticer in the room, excepting the grand viz ier and he is toothless. The shah Is no longer laughed at. The Boston Way. Florence I never was so annoyed! The man had no business in the yard, anyway, and when I went to the window to see what he was doing he had the im pudence to exclaim: "Massage!" Gertrude For goodness sake, what could he have meant by that? "Well, of course, h-i said 'rubber,' but 'massage' is more elegant, don't you :hink?" Boston Transcript. GEN. BRADDOCK'S DEFEAT. Description of the Battle Taken from Dr. Mitchell's Biography of George Washington. I have never seen a man who could describe what took place in the midst of a battle, nor can 1 pretend to great er accuracy. 1 remember that after an hour or more I became suddenly sure that all was lost. ?ays S. Weir Mitchell's "The Youth of Washing ton." in Century. The whole disor dered mass now broke and ran as sheep before hounds, leaving artillery, provisions, baggage, and the wounded and dying in short, everything. When finally a dozen gallant officers threw themselves in front they were knocked down and trampled on. We had as little success as if we had attempted, to stop the wild bears of the moun tains, or torrents, with our feet. It. was quite useless. At this time. Gen. Braddock was under a great oak near to where we left the wagons. I was beside him and heard him cry out: "They have got me." Capt Stewart, of the Vir ginia light guard, caught him as he reeled in the saddle, shot through the right arm and lung. The men ran past us, refusing to help; but another officer aiding us, he was somehow got on to a tumbrel and was carried along in what was now a mad flight to get to the ford. I heard him cry out: "Let me alone! Let me die here!" The wagoners in our reat, near the ford, cut loose the traces and mounted their horses and fled. In spite of the immense courage shown by the offi cers, who in camp were drunken or seemed to be effeminate or lazy, all who were of mind to resist were swept away by a mere mob of panic-stricken men. Men caught, on to my stirrups and even the horse's mane, but some how 1 got tree and out again to on side. Instanly my second horse stag gered and went down. 1 saw Dr. CraiV near by. with the utmost devotion, al though himself wounded, helping ; disabled officer to walk fcray. I wai now afoot, and. as I saw how complete was the rout, I began to fear that out brave Virginians would one of then escape. They held the fringe of tht woods with wonderful courage, usinf their rifles, and keeping back th French and Indians. Nothing els saved the troops ot his majesty iron? complete massacre. As I stood still a moment I -hearc" Croghan call loudly to me to tak to cover. I took his advice, and God alone knows how I escaped death. 1 had four balls through ray clothes. The leaders of the rangers now sav how great was their peril. The reg ulars were by this time near the ford, in the river, or across it. A few brave men in groups were retreating slowly, firing useless shots. The enemy, yell- Ing in triumph, were crawling or leap ing nearer from time to time. Now and then a painted savage ran out ?rom cover and fled back, shaking a bloody scalp. The rangers hail .lost heavily, but those who were left slipped from on shelter to another, and at last when there waa little cover left, ran down to the river, and 1 with them. Few would have got away except for the desire of the Indians to plunder the dead and the baggage and to collect M-alps. and that the French were too lew in number to temure on pursuit. i got over the ford in haste, and standing still on the rise of ground beyond the river, looked at my watch. I (ot:!d hardly Irlirve it to be as I saw. five o'clock. Most of those who j were unhurt were now safe, and with j dpt. Croghan I began to gather the ! wreck of our pour rangers. One com i pany was almost all gone; another lost every officer and many men. As to the j regulars. Tun. neiriy hall of the force. were dead or wounded. A part of what was It? ft of this flne army vas soon scattered beyond the two fords, and later was starved in the woods or got at last into the camps. About 100 men were gathered by the officers a quarter of a mile beyond onr first ford. There Lieut. Col. Burton rallied some hundreds of men. and. later about 80, under Col. Gage, joined them. To my relief and greatly to my surprise, there was no pursuit. That night the parties and sentinels thrown out deserted in an hour. Al though very weak. I sat up beside the general all night. Dr. Craik. who had eared for his wound in the lung, as sured me that he would certainly die before dawn: but he lived longer than was expected. I never remember hav ing been more disturbed in mind than during that night. Caused by Hurried Eating. Severe headaches and colds are fre quently attributable solely to bolting food. Indeed, it is quite within the bounds of possibility that the continu ous swallowing of indigestible lumps of unchewed food may, by the irrita tion the latter cause, pave the way for cancer of the stomach. Not. only is the stomach endangered by the habit of bolting one's food: the ap pendix is also imperiled. Appendicitis is very much more common than it used to be. and on reason for its prevalance is the hurried swallowing of masses Of unmasticated food. Chi cago Daily News. The Eternal Feminine.
