Prieta Uaerf to Soar $ky High In tba
Cafa Anglaia In Paria.
la the puliny days of lta existence
the Cafe Angiitis In Paris was greatly
affected by wealthy Americans. In
this resort the charges soared sky high,
and it was considered bad form to ask
the price of anything on the menu.
You simply ordered what struck your
fancy aud were expected to pay smll

friend to dine there once, and In the

young potatoes, one small capon with

not drink wine, and I ordered for my

fully expected the bill to be 80 to 100
francs ($20). Imagine my horror, there
fore, when the bill was 300 franca.
Sixty dollars! I was indignant, al
though my host merely laughed. I sent
for the maltre d'botel and demanded
an itemized bill. He was very indig
nant; said such a request was unheard
of. After much delay the 'addition' ap
peared. I only remember that it added
up all right and that the charge for the
chicken was $20 and $1 for the wine
(worth about 00 cents). My host only
smiled and gave the waiter a napoleon
"A Chicago acquaintance came to me
one afternoon not long after the above
experience, his eyes bulging and bis
temper high. He said be bad gone to
the Cafe Anglais, ordered luncheon, be
ginning with cold salmon. A whole
fish was brought, and after a small
first helping be liked it bo well that he
took a second spoonful. He noticed
that the fish was not token from the
table when the rest of his meal was
brought When be got bis bill he was
charged for the whole salmon 60
francs ($12). He was assured it was a
rule of the house that a second helping
indicated he wanted the entire fish, and
a charge of that kind was made.

with this outsider's conclusion. So we

The Lest Laadar Writer.
The story is told that when the new
proprietor of the London Times first
went over the building In Printing
House square be saw a door covered
with cobwebs which wouldn't open.
After they had waited a long time an
aged caretaker was found burdened
with enormous keys, one of which
fitted the rusty lock, and after great
straining turned it Inside were dust
and ashes and cobwebs and a skele
ton! It was leaning over a table with
a pen In Its bone fingers. "What on
earth is this?" they asked. "Ob, I re
member bearing that in my great
great grandfather's days they lost one
of their leader writers," said the old
key bearer. "Ha must have got locked

Moving a Billiard Table.
Trobably the most remarkable jour
ney ever made from Cattaro to Ce
tinje. In Montenegro, was that of an
English billiard table. Fifty sturdy
porters were required to carry the ta
ble over the mountain, and a pilot
stood astride it to shout directions as
to bow best to get round awkward cor
ners. The building in which It was
boused retained the name of "Big
Itardo" when converted Into govern
ment offices and parliament bouse
many years later.
Maddanad the Cabbies.
There lived one time in England a
woman who waa known as the "cab
men's terror." She was a Mrs. Cuy
ler, who. knew the distance between
any two given points in London and
always tendered the exact fare with
out a farthing over. Irate cabbies
sometimes disputed the distance or
even carried the affair Into court, but
the "cabmen's terror" always won.

DEFENDED HIS COTTON.

A Virginian veteran used to tell bow
Andy Jackson used bale of cotton la
the ramparts that be threw up In de
fense of New Orleans, and it was nat
urally a matter of Indifference to him
whose cotton he employed.
Some of the cotton happened to be
long to a rich merchant The mer
chant followed his bales with dogtlke
devotion. Ha could not bear to tear
himself away from them. He was
standing over them when Jackson hap
pened to draw near, and, running up
to tba chief, be said: "SIoDsteor, It la

ENERGY OF RADIUM.
One Ton of It Would Equal In Power
1,600,000 Tona of Coal.
If one could utilize the energy of a
ton of radium through a space of thir
ty years it would be sufficient to drive
a ship of 15.000 tons, with engines of
15.000 horsepower, at a rate of fifteen
knots throughout the whole thirty
years. To do this 1,600.000 tons of coal
are actually required, says the Chicago
These are not fanciful figures, for the
energy is there, though, as a matter of
fact It is unlikely that man will ever
produce much more than bait an
ounce of radium a year.
Still, the fact is Important for this
reason that science Is convinced that
tbe radium In radium bromide Is not
the only element which possesses this
marvelous store of energy, but that the
calcium In gypsum and the sodium in
common salt contain also this energy
Tbe evidence of tbe wonderful atomic
energies In tbe common elements of
everyday material is rapidly accumu
lating, and scientists are of the opinion
that perhaps these same discoveries
may in time alter the whole future of
tbe human race.
The Kitchen Sink.
It ia a statistical fact that farm wo
men die earlier than do farm men and
tbat those who survive tbe years of
drudgery break In health sooner than
do the men. The opposite is true In
town. There ia no doubt In my mind
that tbe biggeet factor In the develop.

Avoid Sedativa Cough Medicines.
If you want to contribute directly
to the occurrence of capillary bronch
itis and pneumonia use cough me
dicine that contain codlne, morphine,
heroin and other sedatives when you
have a Cough or cold. An expectorant
like Chamberlain's Cough Remedy Is
what Is needed. That cleans out the
culturé beds or breeding places for
the germs of pneumonia and other
germ diseases, That is why pneu

It has a world wide reputation for Its
cures. It contains no morphine or
