interests of the United States in that

power to the constitutionalists can be
Earlier Minister Suarez had a con
ference with Fernando Igleslas Cal

Ilman, formerly American consul at
Saltllio, and now personal representa
tive of President Wilson there, that

Some time ago a pretty little baby
girl arrived at a happy suburban

cried mother, when the father re
turned home one evening, T have de

will call her .Gwendolyn." For a mo

thinking. The name Gwendolyn sound
ed to him like a fire whistle out of
tune, but he knew better than openly
to oppose mother. Therefore he grew
foxy. . "Gwendolyn! Gwendolyn!" he
musingly replied. "I like that a whole

a girl named Gwendolyn, and she "

"Live targets," an English invention
by which one may shoot at kinemato
graph reproductions of human beings
and animals, are to be introduced into
the German army and nav.y in conse
quence of experiments lust carried
out at Doborltz camp by the kaiser.
The newspapers, state that the ap

for the purpose of Improving the
marksmanship of cadets.. The kaiser,
fascinated by the "sport," spent half
an hour at the "range" fitted up at
Doborltz. His majesty particularly
enjoyed "shooting" deer, seals, and
men and women on the tops of om
nibuses and elsewhere. He said that
the scheme was undoubtedly valuable
for military purposes.

8a le of Red Cross .Christmas Seals
Net Much Money for Anti-Tuber-oulotlt
More than 44,000,000 Red Cross
Christmas seals were sold last Decem
ber, according to a report Issued by
the National Association for the
Study and Prevention of Tuberculo
sis and the American Red Cross. In
this way $440,000 is netted for anti
tuberculosis work In various parts of
the United State s.
The sale in 1913 Is a gain cf 4,00",
000 seals Aver 1912, or 10 per cent.
It is hoped that this year the 60,
000,000 mark will be reached. The
seal design for 1914 has been selected
and orders for the printing of 100,000,
000 seals have been placed. Plans for
the organization of a larger sale this
year than ever before have been per
fected. ' New York led the country last year
with a sale of overlO.500,000 seals,
or one for each man, woman and
child in the state. Of this number,
more than 6,825,000 were sold outside
of New York city. Pennsylvania came
next with a sale of 3,125,000. Ohio was
third with 2,800,000, Wisconsin fourth,
2,700,000, and Illinois fifth with 2,500,
000. Hawaii sold the most seals per
capita, the total sale being somewhat
over two for each inhabitant. Rhode
Island came second with a sale of
two per person.
Beginning with a sale of 13,500,000
in 1908, in six seasons the revenue
which these little holiday seals have
brought to the antituberculosis cam
paign has more than tripled an aggre
gate for the period of over $1,800,
000 or 180,000,000 seals.
Where He had Seen It.
Traveling In Donegal not long ago,
a clergyman engaged a loquacious
boatman to row him on one of the
lakes and show him the sights. They
inspected a ruined castle with the
legend of a banshee. Tbe clergyman,
thinking he would put a poser to the
loquacious Irishman, who knew every
thing, inquired:
"Have you ever seen a banchee,
. "Aye, bedad, that I have, your rev
erence." "Indeed!" said the clergyman, with
an Incredulous smile. "And pray,
where did you see one?"
"Stouffed, In a museum," replied the
unabashed Celt, without any hesita

and a puzzled look crept over his face.

and, pointing back to the ducks, ex

Elephant's Tremendous Strength En
ables Him to Do More Work Than
Team of Horses.
This Is the year of the "elephant
battle" in the great forests of Mysore,
India. The hunting of these gigantic
animals la permitted in India only
every fifth year. On the average from
200 to 250 wild elephants are cap
tured during the battle season, and
these are trained for the various pur
poses for which the Aslatlo elephant
Is used. Everybody knows how con
spicuous a part tamed elephants play
in the great public spectacles in India.
Indian princes and officials sometimes
pay thousands of dollars for excep
tionally 'fine and Intelligent elephants.
After theyhave been properly trained
they are "furnished with trappings
gleaming with gold and splendid color.
The howdah that an elephant trained
for hunting carries on its back, and
in which its master rides, while its
driver places himself Just back of its
head, frequently weighs more than
200 pounds, but the huge animal re
gards it no more than a horse does
a riding saddle.
On a good level road an elephant
will march at the rate ot five miles
per hour, and he is capable of run
ning, for short distances, with a speed
of 20 miles an hour. He can carry,
in regular service, from 1,200 to 1,500
pounds, and he would not greatly
mind a ton or more.
With his enormous muscles and his
dead weight of five or six tons it is
evident that his pulling r.nd lifting
power must be Immense. Ho can pull
down or root up small trees, can pick
up huge logs with his trunk and carry
or throw them around like sticks and
since he Is a - very tractable beast
when well' tamed, he often does farm
work of which a team of horses would
be utterly incapable. He can make
a fence or place huge blocks ot stone
in a wall. He is often employed to
drag artillery wagons.
It Sometimes Happens.
"A smart college graduate came in
here the other day and told me how
to run my business."
. "Of course you threw hini out?"
"No, I didn't. He was right, so I
gave him a Job."
Save the Babies.
INFANT MORTALITY is something frightful. We can hardly realize that
of all the children born in civilized countries, twenty-two per cent.,
or nearly one-quarter, die before they reach one year ; thirty-eeven
' per cent., or more than one-third, before the are five, and one-hall before
they are fifteen I ' -
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Caatoria 'would save a
majority of these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many
of these infantile deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations.
Drops, tinctures and soothing syrups sold for children's complaints contain
more or less opium or morphine. They are, in considerable quantities,
deadly poisons. In any quantity, they stupefy, retard circulation and lead
. to congestions, sickness, death. Caatoria operates exactly the reverse, but
you must see that it bears the signature of Chaa, IL Hotelier. Caatoria
causes trio uiooa to circulate properly,

Genuine Caatoria always bears the

An Irish tenant farmer, returning
from a somewhat distant market late
one afternoon, missed his way and got
Into a bog hole, where he stuck fast.
His landlord, who knew the locality,
chancing to pass shortly afterward on
horseback, noticed his tenant's dilem
ma, and smilingly shouted out:
"Hello, Pat! You've got fixity of
tenure now!" '
"Yes, begorra!" ejaculated Pat.
"And I'd be molghtily obliged If yer
honor wud evict me.''
