UR IIARTZ IS NOW 6)7 YEARS OF AGE, HALE AND HEARTY, AND POSSESSES
ALL UIS FACULTIES). IN FACT HE LOOKS LIKE A MAN 50 YEARS OLD.
MR. ELIAS ITARTZ.
Mr. Elias Hartz, widely known in Reading, Ia., as the goosebone prophet, says: 'I
have been taking Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey for a number of years as my only stimulant
and tonic. I am now 87 years old, hale, hearty, and as vigorous as a man of forty, and
have every reason to believe I will live to a muc h r:per old ago if I can always have a
6upply of Duffy's Iure Malt Whiskey, which is my only medicine. I never have colds or
indigestion, or any organic trouble. I know that it is your valuable whiskey that has
kept me so free from sickness. I was troubled with insomnia before I used it, but now I
an sleep as restfully as a baby. I do not feel any weakness from ray old age, and I
heartily recommend Duffy's l"ure Malt Whiskey to anyone who wishes to keep strong,
young and vigorous."

WOMP AND FASHION
Spring fashions are just at the pres

modish world.- One thing Is noted with
pleasure, there Is n certain simplicity

and trimmed frocks of. the present sea-
A SFRINQ COAT. .
Bon. Spring wraps and spring suits
follow so closely on the heels of win
ter that they are already on exhibition.
They, too, are plainer and more simple
in design than the winter garments.
The coat here pictured is one of the
new spring models and is made of a
ligbl weight broadcloth in a dark shade
of brown, with collar and revers of
white broadcloth and decorated with
white silk. There is a cape, and the
sleeves are of the full bishop style.
Smart Frocki For Girl.
Light gray nuns' veiling frocks are
thought very smart for young girls and
are made in the coat and skirt design,
as well as in the regular frock with
lace yoke or collar. The coat and skirt
are trimmed on just the same lines as
when inteuded for older women and
are trimmed with either plain or
Stitched bands of silk or satin, with
white braid, or have bands of black
and white silk on the skirt and collar
revers and cuffs faced with silk to
match. Tan and dark or light blue veil
ing frocks are also most attractive and
are trimmed with narrow velvet ' rib
bons, either black or several shades
darker than the material. The skirts
are made with circular flounce or in
tucks or plaits, and the waist, always
with blouse effect in front, matches the
skirt that is, If plaited or tucked, the
same effect is seen in the waist, while
if the skirt is compartivcly plain the
waist has yoke or collar of lace out
lined with narrow velvet ribbon.
Embroidered Shirt Waists.
There are embroidered shirt waists of
crepe de chine and of liberty silk, which
are prepared in patterns for making
up. These are suitable for all kinds of
semldress occasions; in fact, as one
better be too plainly than overdressed
they will be found to serve for many
functions. These waists are expensive,
possibly more so than anything of the
kind in stock in many years, but they
are so dainty and in such unquestion
able taste that they are a very safe
investment. The fronts are unsually
decorated with medallions of lace, or
seem themselves to have once been
near to the lace pillow, for the handi
work is exceedingly dainty. There are
tihy tassels and suggestions of fringe
in silk and chenille, which decorate in
an ornate manner. Chicago News.

PEKING , NEEDS ARTISANS,
Difficulties Encountered In Erecting
Oar Xew Legation Dulldlngra. "'
S. II. Nealy, the architect who was
sent to Peking to supervise the erection
of the new United States legation
buildings, has written back a letter de
scribing the difficulties attending the
work, 6ays a Washington special dis
patch to the New York Post. These
arise chiefly from the Impossibility of
getting efficient labor. The Chinese car
penters and bricklayers, who get 20
cents a day for wages, and the labor
ers, who get 12 cents, are industrious
and patient, but unskillful and pain
fully slow. Mr. Nealy thinks that as a
European city a mile long by a half
mile wide is going up In tbe very heart
of the old Tartar City and is likely to
spread a few first class working brick
layers, plasterers, carpenters and tin
ners could make a small fortune there
during the next few years.
The Chinese bricks as they come
from the kiln are badly distorted, and
all have to be squared by hand chisel
before laying. In stone cutting alone
do the Chinese mechanics excel, but
when an ornamental shape Is to be cut
they first go to the pains of carving a
complete model in wood.
The American compound, which is
400 feet square, is cut into by the plot
assigned to the Netherlands govern
ment, an awkward arrangement, which
there seems no way of remedj-ing. The
water everywhere is alkaline and very
bad. The best wells are those sunk by
the Japanese since the allied invasion,
but the water in them comes up foam
ing so as to be unfit for boiler use and
unwholesome for drinking purposes.
Mr. Nealy recommends the sinking of
artesian wells 1,000 or 1,200 feet deep,
Which, he thinks, would reach soft wa
ter. The legationcrs evidently feel most
anxious about this In view of the p6ssi
bllltles of another siege, as their suffer
ings from lack of good water during
the uprising of 1900' are bitterly re
membered. . ,
THE HIP "REDRESSEUR."
Dr. Lorem'i Device Mends Cripples
Jmt as lie Did.
There Is every indication that the
Lorenz apparatus Invented by the cele
brated Vienna surgeon to be used in
operations for congenital hip disease
will prove a complete success, says the
New York American.
The six children upon whom Dr.
Frederick Mueller, the pupil of Dr.
Lorenz, operated on n few days ago,
using the device for the first time in the
United States, now rest comfortably
and appear to have their limbs set in
The Lorenz hip redresseur resembles
somewhat the skeleton frame of a crib.
At one end Is a padded support for the
children's backs, at the other are leath
er sockets in which the feet are strap
ped. At either end are Iamps and
screws for adjusting the appliance and
for the stretching process. The redres
seur, heavy" and silver plated, Is
clamped upon the operating table.
The patient is etherized and arranged
with one foot in the fixed leather sock
et and the other In the movable socket,
adjusted much as a boot is clamped In
a skate. Then Dr. Mueller, holding the
distorted tendons and muscles with one
hand, manipulates the screws with the
other and slowly draws out the foot of
the shorter leg toward its mate. Bit by
bit under the strain of the clamps and
screws, stronger than human band, tbe
muscles stretch. The proper length of
leg attained, the screws are released.
Then the child is taken from the re
dresseur and placed in a plaster of
parts cast already prepared.

FOR THE CHILDREN
A Boy's Poem.
William Cullen Bryant, the famous
American poet, began writing verses at
the early age of eight. His father was
a doctor, being also very fond of the
study of botany, and had accumulated
quite a eomplute library of volumes
devoted to these two subjects. Young
William was a great reader, devouring
everything that came in his way, and
of course very early explored the con
tents of this library. Thus be was In
troduced to the study of nature, but it
was the subject of death, with which
he was confronted in the medical
works, which made the most profound
impression upon him. So deeply was
he stirred bylts consideration that he
composed a poem, for which he coined
a name, calling it "Thanatopsis, or a
View of Death."
After having completed it, why we
do not know, he did not show it to any
one, but hid it away in his father's
desk. Doubtless be soon forgot its
whereabouts, for soon afterward be
left borne to study law and then to
practice his profession in a neighboring
town, never having disturbed the com
position. Meantime the North Ameri
can Review had been started, and Dr.
Bryant, happening to find the poem in
a pigeonhole of his desk, sent it to the
editor of the new publication. He was
delighted with it and showed it to tbe
well known critic. Richard II. Dana.
He immediately exclaimed: "You have
been Imposed upon. No one on this side
of the Atlantic is capable of writing
But of course It soon became known
that. this famous and inimitable poem,
so well known and dear to all, the
equal of which, it is claimed, bas never
been written by one so young, was
composed by young Bryant before bis
departure from home and when be was
but a boy, less than nineteen years of
age. Robert B. Buckham in American

When I have betn bad.
At first I pretend I do not care.
And I hum a tune
And walk oft quick with my head in ths
But pretty soon
I begin to hate the Fussing Tlace.
And to be there seems a great disgrace,
So I stop my tune.
And then I think of mother's eyes,
With that 6orry look.
And soon I think it Is time to surprise
Her over her book.
So I hunt up a smile and put it on

But it doesn't matter much where it is.

Girls and boys, especially girls, don't
allow yourselves to get into the habit
that many grown people hate of, when
called upon for an opinion of somebody
or something of whom or which they
inwardly disapprove, drawling out
"V-e-r-y n-i-c-e." The attempt to bide
disapprobation, envy (a fault to which
poor human nature Is sadly prone) and
several other disagreeable things un
der the thin veil afforded by these two
words is most transparent.
Better tell an honest falsehood, if I
may use the expression, and accord an
emphatic approbation than to employ
this weak, half way one which is so
easily seen through.

pood you and your Vegetable Compound are doing. I had been sick ever since
my iirst baby was born, and at the birth of my second, my doctor, as well as
myself thought I should never live through it. After that menstruation never
came regular, and when it came I suffered terribly. I also had womb and
ovarian trouble. A friend of my husband's advised him to get Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for me. At first I had no faith in it,
but now nothing could induce me to be without it. Menstruation has become
regular, and I feel like a new woman. Your medicine is a God -send to suffer
