Bead this: Mrs. J. L. Cumming. 80 Elm street, Barre, Vt., says: "About three years ago I began to have serious attacks of kidney trouble. The first symptom was a sharp pain just over my hips, some times lasting for three days. During these attacks I could not sleep and it was with the greatest difficulty that I got around the house. If I caught cold it settled in my back, aggravating the trouble. I used a number of remedies, but found no relief until I took Doan s Kidney fills, procured at Drown' drug store. They strengthened my back and proved to be an excellent kidney remedy. It is now over six months since I have had an attack of backache and I be lieve that Ponn's Kidney Tills have ef fected ft permanent cure." (Statement given Nov. 13, 1905.)

"HANG THE PRISONERS!" An Exclamation That Wii Put Into Effect as an Order. The young laird of Ioehnow was a character In the Scotch enmp life of the etirly eighteenth century. He was cool in action and full of fuu in daily life. One day he was detailed to com mand a burial party, and as he strolled over the battlefield bin orderly came to hiui in great-perplexlty. "Sir," said be, "there Is a heap of fel lows lying out yonder who say they're only wounded, and they won t let us bury them like the rest. What shall we do?" "Bury them at once," replied young Agnew without moving a muscle of his countenance, "for if you take their word for it tbey won't be dead for a hundred years to come." The man saluted and started off in all simplicity to carry out the order, and Agnew had to dispatch a counter order in haste to prevent his Joke from becoming a tragedy. This recoils an "o'er true" tale, of border life. Some Galloway mosis troopers we:e brought before Sir Wil liam Howard, who was an enthusiastic mathematician. He was deep in his .studies when the prisoners were marched into the castle courtyard, and a lieutenant came running up to get orders as to their disposal. Enraged at being Interrupted, he cried, "Hang the prisoners!" and went on with his work. He finished his problem and went down with a cheerful mind only to learn that his exclamation had been taken for an order, and the prisoners were all hanged. Glue Tonic. Chinese medicine developed a special fondness for fossilized "dragon bones," derived from extinct herblvora. They are also fond of "dragon teeth," as fos silized shells are called. In Shantung glue Is made from asses' skins. In a certain town of that province is a well, the water of which when drunk by asses makes their skins especially good for making glue. This glue brings a fancy prise, as it is a famous tonic throughout China.

It Caused the Wreck, Long Shrouded ' In Mystery, of a Sohooner. The queer accidents that have hap pened to Maine vessels would fill a volume, and some of them would not be belle- An old coaster" captain recalled the mysterious wreck of the little schooner Active in Fox island thoroughfares some years ago. It was In the fall of the year, and the Active tvas going through the narrow pas tage between the islands. She carried only two men, the master, Captain Ray, and bis sixteen-year-old son. When last seen under sail the Active was shipshape, the boy at the wheel and his father below taking a nap, as It was afterward found. Next day the Active was found on the rocks, wtlh her stern stove In, the master drown ed in his bunk and the boy dead at the wheel With a bullet hole In his heud. This discovery caused a great sensa tion, and there appeared to be no mo tives for any one to kill the boy, and as It was known that the shot must have been fired by a third person, the whole affair was a mystery and re mained thus for years, when a man In a distant state confessed on his death bod that it was he who fired the shot that killed the helmsman of the Ac tive. The man said that he had fired at a hawk, which was circling low, aud did not see the schooner, which suddenly came Into range, owing to an interven ing clump of bushes. Then he wrs horrified to see the boy at fee schoon er's wheel throw up his hands ai.J fall to the deck, while the vessel broached to and was driven ashore by the wind and tide. The gunner, who was after gulls and duclts, fled without wafting to Investigate the result of his unfor tunate shot, fearing that if he reported the matter to the authorities he might, nlthough Innocent of any criminal in tent, be imprisoned. Wushlngton Post. CONVEX LENS OF THE EYE. A Burning Glae That Adjust the Sight to Varying Distances. One of the manifold wonders of the human eye Is the convex lens with which the focal distances of sight are made Instantly and without mental ef fort This lena in the eye Is a literal "burning glass," as the small boy styles the glass lens with which he focuses the sun's rays and sets fire to a piece of paper. Just in this sense, too, is the lens of the eye a literal b"rnlng glass, as may be shown by the simplest of experiments. Let the person at midday hold a straw against the face of ttt sun and focus his eves on the straw. He enn look at tie straw, wlh iU background of a dawllng sun, and without discom fort. But the momeut be looks at the fiery ball of the sun ltaelf, subcon sciously the lena of the eye comes to 1U proper focus, with the result that a "burning" sun spot appears on the re tina of the eye. and it is said that a few seconds of such looking would burn out the retina as if by fire Hself. In the subconscious adaptability of the eye lens to adapt ItsMf to different distances lies Its value to the human sight The man with a camera adjusts the focus of his leuwes by sliding them forward and back. The lenses of tue numaa eye, by changing their curva tures, allow of on- looking at fine print six inches from his nose and in a frnctlon of a second to look up and away, probably fifty miles to a moun tain peak that in an Instant is In true camera focus.

A Good Deal Sometime By E. L. THOMPSON Copyright by American Press Asso ciation. 1311. My maiden name was Alice Beatrice Cholmondelay. My father, having lost his estates In Fuglund when I was a baby, brought his family to the Unit ed States. When he reached here he had nothing left but tin aristocratic name. My father's fortune so far Improved In America thut by the time I became a young lady we were enabled to move In the best society. One evening at a social gathering I met a young Eng lishman who seemed from the first to take a desperate f;.ncy to me, and I was equally pleased with him. Indeed, it was a case of love at first sight I didn't distinctly hear the young man's name, but I understood it to be Cummings. Her had no sooner left me than the hostess, who Introduced him, came to me and said: "That young man is immensely wealthy. His grandfather made a for tune in fish, but his father has never been in trade, aud this one of the third generation is desirous of marrying into an old British family. He cares noth ing about money. It is the name he wants. I noticed that he appeared smitten with you, and if you like him I'm sure it will be the chance of your life. He has the monej ; you have the lineage." I had given Mr. Cummings permis sion to call upon me, and he came the very next evening. What was my sur prise to hear him say, "Good evening, Mlas Chumley; you are looking very well tonight!" "Miss Chuniley!" I exclaimed, knit ting my brows. "Didn't I hear ,vour name aright?" he asked, surprised. "Certainly not. It is Cholmondelay." "Oh! Beg pardon. We always call that name Chumley In England. Chol mondelay is very long, you know." When be had gone I went to my fa ther at once and asked If our name was called Chumley In England. He admitted that it wns. He had never said anything about this pronunciation to me since he feared that It might lessen my reverence for the family name. Mr. Cummings called often, and it was evident that his intentions were serious. He seemed anxious to do away with the impression he had made in calling me Miss Chumley. He had a fine sonorous bass voice and pronounced Cholniondelay leautlfully. rolling the syllables on bis tongue like rare old wine. ' The first time I addressed bim by his own name, or his name as I hPd heard it. I noticed that he started. I asked him if I had made a mistake, whereupon he colored, stammered and finally told me that 1 had pronounced It differently from the usual pronun ciation, then turned the subject so quickly that I had no opportoolty to pursue the subject further. ' My admirer was 'suddenly called back to England by the serious illness of his mother nnd was obliged to leave his courtship unfinished or bring it to an abrupt termination. I shall not forget women never forget such things how he announced his depar ture, how I looked sadly down at the carpet and how. eehlng my hand, he poured forth his tale of love. He did not become so familiar as to call me Beatrice. It was always Miss Chol mondelay, and every time he spoke it I teemed to hear one of the sweetest of the lower tones of a cello. After telling me of hU lov he wut on with his plan of forming through me that aristocratic association which his wealth,' supported ' j ray lineage, would give him. "I shall owe every thing to you," b said. "Every door In England will fly open to the name Cholmondelay." , The beloved name was a fitting cli max to the offer. I threw myself into his arms, and we were betrothed. He had been undecided about mak ing his proposal then or returning across, an ocean to do so; therefor" he had put It off till the last minute. He was to sail at midnight and after a dozen kisses sprang away -from me, entered a taxlcab waiting for him at the door and drove to the steamer. The first letter I received from him contained a postcript. "I spell my name as you pronounco it." I thought that very singular, for I could think of but one pronunciation, nowever. i conclude?! It must be Co royncs or something like that, for Eng lish people are prone to spell the most ordinary names in the roost slnguz-.r way. I hoped it wits Oomyngs, for 't sounded very aristocratic. Slf lover returned three months later to take me ti England as his bride. Our wedding cards were print ed "Cummings nnd Cholmondelay." I nsked about the spelling of bis name, but he put me off. We were married and sailed away to begin a new life at least for me. WTe were received by relatives and friendn on the steps of my husband's palatial country seat, pod the first person who addressed me by my married name said: 'Welcome, Mrs. Curmudgeon." I fainted. As soon as I was alone with my hus tnd 1 began to reproach him wltlr hpving deceived mn. ' He said that when I made the mistake of calling lilm Cummings. considering the store I iet upon a euphonious and aristocratic oame. he simply could not set me right.

In old sea stories one occasionally comes upon the term admiral of the blue, red or white. In bygone days the color of an admiral's flag proclaimed his rank. Now it denotes his seniority. Hence It comes about that an admiral must carry three personal flags In his locker. There are thre" grades of admiral admiral, vice admiral and rear admi ral. At one time commodore made a kind of half admiral, but that grade has now been abolished. The rank of an admiral Is made plain to all seafaring persons by the num ber of stars on the flag hoisted at his foremast head. Thus four stars show an admiral, three a vice admiral and two a rear admiral. This is simple enough, but the harassing question arose, What if two admirals, two vice admirals or two rear admirals should happen to sail Into port, each with a squadron? What, indeed. If three ad mirals, and so forth, should appear on the same scene? How could any one distinguish between them? Pome In nocent governor or mayor returning n visit of courtesy might call upon the Junior first, and that would be a bad blunder. To obviate such a mischance It Is now the custom for admirals to mark their seniority by the color of their flags. Thns if three rear dmirals happen into a port the senior flies a blue flag with two stars, the second a red flag with two stars nnd the Junior a white flag with the same constella tion. If the senior should leave port first the second promptly hoists his blue flag and the Junior the red. Then If the second admiral steamed away the Junior would hoist the blue flag for all the personal satisfaction there was In it. But here a KPtious question comci . . . . . . . , . up. Suppose in tue menntnue 11 imiuu rear admiral appeared on tne scene. Then, as u naval authority explains, the situation for the respective flag Fads for Weak Women Nine-teoths of nil the sickness of women is due to some derangement or dis ease of the organs distinctly feminine.
