HONEST CAPACITY CREAM SEPARATORS. mm Capacity is nn important ronsid eratum in tliu purclia.st-of :t cream separator. Ii taiturs largely into the cost ami value of the machine ami there is no way of properly jianiiifj either without reference to it. A lanre capacity machine sepa rates the same amount of milk in just so much less time. This sav ing of time means something in dollars-anl-cents every time the machine is used. It means a great ileal in the course of a month or a year. Moreover the wear of the machine is just so much less and it lasts that much logger. - Iiut. capacity must alwavs he de termined with CLIO AN SKIM MING under the I'KAOTICAl, KVKIt V DAY USE CONDITIONS, with ordinary separator speed, cows old as well as fresh in lactation, milk cool as well as warm, and thick as well as thin cream. Ca pacity means nothi"g if any of these conditions have to be sacri ficed to obtain it. Hence capacity marks one of the BIG DIFFERENCES between the "ALl'lIA-DISC" DE LAVAL and other cream separators. The I)E "-Xg LAVAL machines fully meetthese -conditions. All other machines v5' either lack the capacity 'claimed" ' for them or can only reach a through sacrifice of one or other of-the imporf mant practical use consiu erations named. . -J A DE LAVAL catalogue makes plain the reason Sfor this difference and is to he had for the asking.

How Charles Dickens appeared while on the lecture platfrom in Washington, D. C, In 1865 is de scribed in the "Memoirs" of ex-Sena tor Cole of California: "The lecture room was crowded, but I was favored with a seat near the front, where I had a fair opportunity to see and to observe some of the peculiarities of that great author. Mr. Dickens was dressed in a highly-fashionable eve ning attire, not all in dark colors, and In appearance rather foppish. His vest was of a hue to exhibit to the best advantage a heavy gold chain which extended from the middle both wavs across his chest. His neckwear was of a cut and color to be called flashy. His hair was rather long and wavy, and was arranged to stand out at the sides above the ears. His fea tures are well represented in the numerous pictures seen of him, and it will be observed they have quite a uniform appearance. He read single chapters, without comment or intro ductory remarks, further than to an nounce the work, as from 'Copper field,' 'Nicholas Nickleby,' 'The Pick wick Papers' or 'Little Dorrit.' The book in each case lay open before him, but he paid little or no attention to the text." Defense of the Surgeon. Tn a recent lecture at the Harvard Medical school Dr. Maurice H. Rich ardson set forth the absolute need of resorting to the knife in certain cases. The idea that the surgeon lacks sensi bility and is more or less indifferent to human suffering and may even per form an operation when not absolute ly necessary he declared to be all wrong. He said that the contrary was shown by the fact that the sur geon is constantly laboring to make his profession unnecessary by prevent ing the recurrence of the diseases for which he operates, as well as by en deavoring to cure without resorting to operation. "A popular delusion that the surgeon is simply looking for an opportunity to keep busy all the time," Dr. Richardson added, "results in thou sands of deaths of sufferers who are persuaded by friends not to submit to operation, until it is too late to save the patient" Grocery Prices Cut in-2 Saturday, Feb. 6, 1909. 2 Cans Pineapple, 3 Packages Raisins, 3 Packages Currants, 2 Packages Washing Powder, 8 lbs.

A new fire detector of unusual kind is a fine copper wire encased in fusible metal, which, in turn, is covered with insulating material and inclosed in a copper tube of one-tenth of an inch. The tube is strung like a bell or mounted in short sections on porce lain blocks. When the temperature increases the sensitive temperature 160, 200 or 370 degrees Fahrenheit the fusible alloy is softened and forced through the porous insulation against the copper tube, ringing the alarm continuously until stopped.

Cousin Bob No; they're head ornaments. Insomnia. Insomnia is the not uncommon fate of the brainworker who, after years of continuous mental strain, retires from active life. The reason is that mental activity demands a large supply of blood for the brain, and the blood ves sels gradually accommodate them selves to this large supply. But, when the hard work is over, the brain does not always realize that it needs less nourishment, and hence the condition of excessive mental activity which i what insomnia is. . LUKE B.
