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
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.
People Have Preserved Existence Un

The inhabitants of Paris once lived
under Henry IV., during a siege, on
the most repugnant meals. All grass

purpose "delicious" pastries of ground

of three weeks, and the necessary

Paris in 1871 is still in mind. People

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

that time on nothing but cheese. The

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

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."

De Rougemont Shows a London Audi
ence How Easy It Is.
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

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.

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
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.
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.

DESCRIPTION 't Made in all sizes. It is lively and sy riding, very durable and lined inside
with a special quality of rubber, which never becomes po us and which closes up small punctures
without allowing the air to escape. We have hundreds o etters from satisfied customers stating
that their tires have only been pumped up once or twice in : :hole season. They weigh no more than
an ordinary tire, the puncture resisting qualities being j :en by several layers of thin, specially
prepared fabric on the tread. That "Holding Back" sensat n commonly felt when riding on asphalt
or soft roads is overcome by the patent "Basket Weave" read which" prevents all air from being
squeezed out between the tire and the road thusovercomi r all suction. The regular price of these
tires is $8.50 per pair, but for advertising purposes we are j iking a special factory price to the rider
of only I4.S0 per pair. All orders shipped same day letter received. We ship C.O.D. on approval.
You do not pav a cent until you have examined and fount hem strictly as represented.
We will allow a cash discount of 5 percent (thereby ma hg the price 84.55 per pair) if you send
