MIND AND MUSCLE RELATED. Fear, Anxiety or Nervousness Fatal to Difficult Feats. In all feats of skill the influence of the mind is most important. To per ioral in thoroughly good style any dif ficult feat of skill it is absolutely nec essary that the mind must be free from fear, anxiety or nervousness. I knew once, years ago, a man who had been a bull fighter in Spain. During one of his glowing accounts of the sport I expressed my surprise that he Bhould have left the life. His reply was: "One day I was about to enter the ring, and I had a little creepy feel ing of fear. Then I stopped for good. The man who feels fear is sure to be Mlled." And it is equally true that the man who fears is heavily handicapped, no matter what the contest may be. Anxiety and nervousness are closely kin to fear; and both are so powerful in their effect as to render it almost impossible for one to perform perfect ly and difficult or delicate feat of skill. The man who Is afraid or anxious or nervous is almost sure to fail. All emotions when intense have a powerful effect upon the muscles. This is plainly seen in the tension of the muscles, clinching of hands and arms, as well as of the face in anger, in the spasmodic breathing of excitement, in the muscular weakness and trembling of fear, and In many other conditions that might be mentioned. Now, in feats of skill of whatever nature, whether balancing, juggling, marks manship, tumbling, or shot putting, It is necessary that just the right muscles must be used at just the right Instant, and to just the right degree. "When, however, the muscles are dis turbed by emotional excitement, such delicate adjustment is impossible, and the probable result is failure. The mental state most conducive to success in games of skill is confident calmness. And by practice this state of mind may be made a habit a habit most valuable in all game of skill, even in that game of skill called life. Dr. W. R. C. Latson, in Outing. HUMAN POWER OF RESISTANCE. People Have Preserved Existence Un der Wonderful Conditions. The inhabitants of Paris once lived under Henry IV., during a siege, on the most repugnant meals. All grass which could be found, even that grow ing between the stones of the pave ment, was cooked into soups. In a Held oven erected especially for this purpose "delicious" pastries of ground bones were made up during the period of three weeks, and the necessary hones were obtained from a nearby cemetery. What occurred during the siege of Paris in 1871 is still in mind. People ate almost all the animals of the zoo logical garden. One of the butchers old monkey and urchin meat, and canal rat as well as dog meat became "classical." A baker's family con sumed during the siege their entire shop i. e., all their goods and an aged tradeswoman stayed in her base ment for 143 days, living during all that time on nothing but cheese. The polar explorers knew even worse .meals. The pioneers of the pole con sidered raw fish and polar bear meat delicacies, and Nansen is authority ior the statement that he and his mea were exceedingly delighted when they succeeded in baking cakes with illum inating oil. From tarred rigging of the ship and from lichens which were found on the desolate rocks not in frequently the strangest soups were made. In the year 1901 the well digger Si mon of Bonneval, near Chartres, was entombed by fallen sand and remained so for five days, having nothing to eat or to drink. In 1897 some miners in Wales were rescued from an entirely flooded mine after ten days, still alive. The water had already risen to their chins. There are, however, still more remarkable cases. The London Philo sophical Transaction told of a man who had stayed in a cellar, covered by the debris of the building, 24 days without eating and drinking. Italy, too, presents an instance; it Is re ported by Somio, the physician of the king of Sardinia: In Piedmont three women hail been overtaken by an ava lanche, and had been living, when they were rescued on March 19, 175t. under the dbris of a stable for 37 days. Harper's Weekly. Hotel Has Private Rainstorm. The latest hot weather innovation in Paris is a private rainstorm. While people in the streets are sweltering in the hot sun, guests at the Hotel Cas tiglione ' may now gaze from their windows on the big open court, and have all the cooling effects of a sum mer rainstorm. To make the arti ficial rainstorm complete the hotel management has placed in the center of the courtyard a gigantic umbrella, some 25 feet in diameter, under which the guests may read or drink without getting wet. The innovation is de cidedly cooling, and is attracting con siderable attention. The mechanism consists merely of pipes placed high above the court. English Officials in India. Britain uses only a handful of Eng lishmen in its India civil service to govern the hordes of natives in In dia. Says an authority: "Including military officers in civil employ and others, about 1,200 Englishmen are employed in the civil government of 232,000.000 of people and in the par tial control of 62,000,000 more. On the average there are only four members of the ruling race for every million of its subjects. India is a government of Indians under British direction." C. J. Hunt, Cashier. S- O.

Six years ago M. de Rougemont ap peared before the geographical sec tion of the British association at Clif ton and described with much wealth of detail his remarkable adventures In the heart of the Australian conti nent. He included among them some striking reminiscences of the pearling industry in Australia, and added that, having been wrecked, he occupied some part of his leisure by ridin? turtles in the lagoon of his desert island. Yesterday, after the lapse of many days, he appeared in a striped bathing blanket and a bathing suit before a British audience at the Hip podrome to demonstrate the truth of his part of his narrative. There Is no ground for supposing that it Is the same turtle which shared M. de Rougemont's solitude in Aus tralasia, or that it is a confederate in any way. Yesterday it lay placidly by the Hippodrome lagooon while M. de Rougemont lectured once again on his entertaining experiences, and it gave no sign of Intelligence while he de scribed the whole art of turtle riding. Suddenly the explorer flung off his blanket, and seizing the turtle uncere moniously by the scruff of its neck and the back of its shell hoisted it into the water. The turtle sank, but rose again. M. de Rougemont went in after it and in a moment was on its back. Down it went again and then once more rose. This time the ridei grasped it firmly, crying, "Ta 'Ra 'Ra!" and slapped it with some se verity. It was an exciting and amus ing entertainment from the specta tors' point of view and M. de Rouge mont also appeared to enjoy it very much. Of the turtle's enjoyment we have some doubt, but its general atti tude was that of a passive resister. At any rate, M. de Rougemont did ride it London Daily Graphic. FOR THOSE N EARING OLD AGE. Writer in Scribrifer Gives Some Advice Worth Heeding. With increasing enlightenment in matters of hygiene, the period of old age is deferred, and the tides of life now flow strongly at a time when our forefathers and, still more, our fore mothers were laid on the shelf; and yet, put it off as we may, it is bound to catch up with us, unless we be of those whom the gods love. To the earlier period of meek acceptance be longs the assertion, so often repeated as to be sometimes carelessly taken for truth, that contact with youth more than anything else makes old people forget their age. Never was a more mistaken statement. In a way, it is true that the society of young persons does keep their elders young, by stimulating their pride and pre venting them from giving way to cer tain foibles incident to their time in life. It is in the nature of a salutary discipline; and those persons who are brought in contact with the little seg regated communities of old men and old women who are collected in "homes" will probably agree that it is a discipline which is most desirable! For of all the pitfalls which lie in wait for old age the most distressing is that lack of self-control which lays bare the weaknesses hitherto kept un der cover by a normally strong will. The constant presence of the younger generation is at the same time a mor al goad and a support. The very in stinct of self-preservation leads one to adapt oneself to their standards. If you would not be unpleasant to look at, you must cultivate the nine ties of the toilet. Not for you, madam, any "sweet neglect" At your age, "robes loosely flowing, hair as free" are not as befitting as a well-preserved figure and a trim coiffure. Not for you, sir, an overindulgence in slippered ease. Beware the trousers that bag at the knee and the wrinkled waist coat. If you would not be an unwel come companion you must constantly bear in mind that "brevity is the soul of wit" You must be sympathetic, but discreet; wise, but not too wise; modern enough to be companionable, but old-fashioned enough to be suit able. And you must not expect to be understood. Scribner. The Old Plane Tree of Cos.

How He Got His Start in the Early Days of California. In 1853, or more than a half cen tury ago, a little party of gold seek ers with a meager outfit of horses and wagons, started for California from the village of Racine, Wis., says Out ing. In command of this adventurous expedition was a young man who took with him his wife and infant daugh ter. His name was E. J. Baldwin and he mad a wise choice in shaking from his restless feet the dint of a tamer civilization. He needed a larger theater of action for his pent-up and surging activities. While trailing through the mountains of Utah the pioneers were attacked by Indians, who were beaten off during a six-hour fight in which young Baldwin killed their chief. After six months of hard ship, the party reached Hangtown (later called Placerville) in California. Here Baldwin tarried and began placer mining. He appears to have been no more than an ordinary red shirted argonaut, meeting the ups and downs of mining luck, until the discovery of the Comstock lode at Virginia City. Thither he drifted aid discovered that his natural bent was gambling with the mines that other men had opened. Amid a whirlwind of speculation, he fought his way with such success that he loomed from the smoke in a few months as "Lucky" Baldwin, the man who had cleaned up $7,500,000 in the gigantic deals in the stock of the Ophir mines. San Francisco was the Mecca of those lucky sons of fortune who were rearing a great city by the Golden Gate. As a stock and mining specula tor, "Lucky" Baldwin shone resplend ent, but he was also a loyal son of San Francisco. He built hotels and the aters and business blocks, even while he was amazing that far from conser vative community by madly freakish extravagances. In the very lucid interval he bought all the Spanish grants he could find near Los Angeles and there spent a million in making this ranch of his not only a splendidly productive prop erty, but also one of the most beauti ful estates ever laid out in this or any other country. It was his hobby, his pet, and he planted miles of ave nues with noble shade trees and made wonderful tropical gardens, so that to day his home is surrounded by a paradise of vernal beauty. WORK NECESSARY TO SUCCESS. Labor in Boyhood of Advantage in Later Life. Do you feel many days that you have had a hard time? Your hours are long. Your task is hard and wages small. The contents of your weekly pay envelope will scarcely carry you over the week. Sometimes you must wear patched trousers or a frayed coat Your employer expects a great deal from you. Other fellows dress well and always have money. They have coddling fathers and mothers, while you toil six days a week to make a living, says a writer in the Valdosta (Ga.) Times. Never mind, young man. You are ahead of the boy who has every lux ury at home. You are getting experi ence that he must get somehow later on. Because, sooner or later, he must fight the real battle of life himself. And you have the advantage. While life has been made easy for him, he lacks drill and discipline which every life-soldier must go through. You are preparing yourself. He may go in without preparation and fail. Work is a great blessing. You can not see now, but some day you will say that you were fortunate in youf boyhood days because you were com pelled to work. Because you cannot get power to do things save by doing them. Look over the successful men you know. Get their history. Nea -every one was compelled to work m boyhood. They toughened their mus cles by hard work, and sharpened their brains by looking out for them selves. Work makes men. Luck usually fails. Pluck nearly always wins. To succeed in anything one must over come obstacles. Force and fiber are built by hardships. Grit is as neces sary in the making of a man as gump tion. Hardships are not always han dicaps. Often they are helpers. You will understand this better in 20 years. Meantime, permit one who has lived that 20 y?:i:.; and more to advise you in this. Not Yet, But Soon.
