"The price of many drugs used In medicine is astonishing to those -who are not acquainted with the subject," remarked a druggist. "There are sev eral that are worth their weight in gold (about 20 an ounce), while 2, $3 or $5 an ounce are quite common prices in pharmacy. I filled a prescrip tion the other day that cost $25. But there Is one drug that I can recall which is worth much more than its jvelght In gold. That is pseudo physo stlgmine. I don't think that it has a popular name. It Is too rich for that.

BEWARE OF THE STRAP. A Possible Source of Infection to Those Who Hide In Street Cars. The connection between the microbe and the street car strap bas frequently been discussed and at least one recent Instance lias proved somewhat distress ingly tbat djnger is likely to lurk in the piece of leather which helps to support so many women during the rush hours of the day. It was to protect a fresh pair of while gloves that a New York woman, compelled to stand, held her handkerchief inside the strap while go ing to the theater. On her way home she was again compelled to stand, and once more the handkerchief came be tween her glove and the leather. Whether it was after that or during the evening at the theater that she once thoughtlessly put the handker chief to her face Is a detail that she does not recall, but two days afterward a pain on her Hp became so intolerable that she was compelled to see a doctor, who found her suffering from incipient blood poisoning, which it was already too lale for him to prevent The most that he could do was to watch her care fully through a long attack of illness, which at one time threatened to end fatally. lie attributed this to some poisonous substance which had passed to her handkerchief from the strap, and that was his diagnosis the moment be heard the story of the rldem the cable car. She fortunatcly recovered, and her phy sician thinks that the present disfigure ment to her face which resulted from the' uecessity of an operation will not be permanent.

"The world was a long time learning the uses and value of rubber," says H. E. Armstrong in Ainslee's. "For two centuries after the Spaniards saw the gum in the hands of natives of the new world it was little more tfian a curios ity. Old Herrea, who went with Co lumbus on his second voyage, made a note of an elastic ball which was mold ed from the gum of a tree. At their games the nude Haitians made it bound high In the air. The Aztecs were familiar with the gum and called It ule, and from them the Spaniards learned to smear it on their coats to keep out the wet. They had crossed the seas for gold and never dreamed of a time when the sticky milk the uncouth In dians dre"w from strange trees would be worth more than the treasure of the hills. "Jose, king of Portugal, in 1555, comes down to us as the wearer of a pair of boots sent out to Para to be covered with a waterproof gum. Yet 300 years were to elapse before a Connecticut Yankee should make a pair of boots of rubber which would not decompose, Tlf "Prtnctlv nntlinr nf n work on 'Per- spective,' now forgotten, recorded thatj onnntohnnr. fnrnnounced kaehookl was ! useful in small cubes for rubbing out pencil marks; hence the name rubber. The India linked with it refers to the savages who gathered It in the Amazon wilderness. Dr. Pries tly's cubes were half an Inch long and sold for 3 shil lings, or 75 cents, apiece a stiff price, for the finest rubber today Is $1 a pound. Its price for ten years has ranged from G2 cents to $1.09. "The conversion of the gum to useful purposes made but slow headway. The first waterproof cloth in 1797 was the work of an Englishman. It was tenta tive, and, of course, it would not stand heat In 1S23 Charles Mackintosh of Glasgow discovered naphtha and, dis solving rubber In it produced a varnish which, when spread on cloth, made it really Impervious to water. Most of the rubber used in the world still comes from equatorial South America, and the forests where the Indians gathered ule are as dense today and almost as little knovn to white men as in the time of Cortes." WhyrThey TVere Selected. It has been recorded that General Henry Knox, in 1783, was the "great est" of 11 distinguished officers of the army, weighing 2S0 pounds. Noah Brooks, in -Lis book entitled "Henry Knox," gives the following incident re lating to the general's full habit: With a Captain Sargent, he was se lected to present the hard case of the starving and naked men at Valley Forge to the attention of a committee of congress. One of the congressmen. wishing to show his wit and sarcasm, said that he had never seen a fatter man than General Knox nor a better dressed man than his associate. Knox managed to keep his temper and remained silent, but his subor dinate retorted, "The corps, out of re- upect to congress and themselves, have sent as their representatives the only man who had an ounce of superfluous flesh on his body and the only other man who possessed a complete suit of clothes." STOCKBROKERS' SUPERSTITIONS. Luck of a Man Who Stepped on a CrncL: Going o His Ofllce. The man who was watching the tape anxiously suddenly snapped it off and, turning to the brokers standing near him, said: 1 "That last sale has probably cost me $1,000, and I am through bucking my su perstition." "Lost a rabbit foot?" asked a broker. "No, nothing of that sort. I don't be lieve in rabbits' feet, opals and all that sort of thing. I have a little superstition of my own, however, which is just as foolish. It is really absolutely silly, but I have never kno.wn it to fail. I come down town in a Broadway car every morning. Experience has taught me that if I step on a crack as I walk from Broadway down Wall and Broad to my office luck will go against me all day. I first noticed thfs ten years ago. It came to me like an inspiration. I tried to fight It down. On days when I had stepped on a crack in going to my office in the morning I would trade only in the most conservative stocks and on what seemed to be sure tips. In nine cases out of ten, however, the market would go against me. "Of course it Is foolish, but I'll ven ture to say that eight brokers out of ten down here have some pet superstition .like it. I have tried in every way to take the hoodoo away from mine, and today's luck has convinced me that it is useless. I stepped on a crack this morning gust as I was thinking about buying 200 chares of X. Y. Z. I had straight infor mation that it was to he bulled, and its last report warranted a price better than 81. When I stepped on the crack, I thought to myself: 'There is my hoodoo. If I bujn that stock now, it will go down. I'll just take the curse off that hoodoo by selling 200 shares.' That was wliat I did. I or dered my short stock covered at 70. Five points was all the profit I expected. The stock began to sag as soon as I sold, and then came a rally, and it's been goingup ever since. My stock has just been cov ered at a five point loss. That convinces me that I can't get the better of my hoo doo, and hereafter I am going to yield to it." Several of the other brokers admitted in turn their pet superstitions, and one of them told a story about the death of a well known governor of the Stock Ex change a few years ago. The governor may be called Brown. The broker said: "There was not a more level headed man on the exchange than Brown, and probably all of you knew him. He had one superstition which he confided to his friends. He always said that he felt sure that if it ever became necessary for him to announce a member's death that his own death would come very shortly after that. We all guyed him about it, and Brown himself didn't seem to be very serious. It so happened one morning, however, that the other officers of the exchange were ill, and" Brown was called upon to announce the death of a member. I heard him do it and thought to myself that this was a good opportuni ty to prove the foolishness of his super-! stition. Brown- looked to be in perfect health. After announcing this death he stepped down, walked across the floor and when near the door he fell as if in a faint. He never recovered conscious ness. You all know that he died in that way, and there are a dozen other men besides myself who can vouch for his having that superstition. My experi ence leads me to believe that stt ckbro kers are-the most superstitious of men." New York Sun.

Within the past year there has been a great demand made by those visiting the city for accommodations that have a semblance to their home surround ings. Realizing this want, Colonel J. S. Young of the Russ House has gone to an expense of over $70,000 to ob tain the desired result. Th'e first step taken was to tear down the plaster ing in every room. Over 1000 loads of old plastering were carted away before the work of modernizing the house was completed. From one end of the ho tel to the other has been repapered and repainted, while new furnishings are to be seen on every hand. The building . now contains twenty-one suites of rooms which have private bath adjoining and over SuO other rooms for those who wish for less pretentious accommodations. The new plumbing is of the most modern sani tary kind, and has been inspected by the local health authorities, who have given their endorsement to it, as being the most complete in the city. An electric service is now in use throughout the building, while every room is supplied with hot and cold water. The locksmith has visited all the doors and put on new locks of the most improved pattern. These locks have a set bolt which can only be opened from the inside. The Russ House is famous for the good table it sets. In fact, many of the business men who have offices in the insurance district are to be seen at the noon hour in the dining-room. A visit to the kitchen shows that none of the Oriental ' races are employed, and tnere is a cleanliness that speaks well for the thoroughness of the man agement. This part of the hotel is so situated that it is by itself, and there is no chance of the odor of cooking being found outside its doors. In fact, the Russ House is one of the most modern hotels in the city and the latest to be thoroughly renovated. It is an Ideal place at which to stop. Everything is congenial, and one feels at home the momen he passes the front doors. S. F. Post, July 26th. God's Comforts. God's comforts are the first whispers of undying peace. Rev. E. Burk.

A bloodhound man has been discover ed by a German doctor; this is an Indi vidual whose sense of smell is so keen that he can recognize his friends at a distance of several feet and when he is blindfold. One scientific fact resulting from this highly developed sense is that all the members of a family have a characteristic odor, and that each family has its distinctive odor. A dentist says that a woman loses, her teeth sooner than a man. Probably she wears them out with her tongue. It la the Most Sensitive Part of the Human Body. The tip of the tongue possesses the most perfect sense of touch. The finest hair is felt upon its surface, and even when fingers fail to ascertain the quali ties of certain bodies, contact with the tongue immediately recognizes them. The relative sensibility of various parts of the body is best measured by means of a pair of compasses, the points of which are tipped with cork. The tip of the tongue can distinguish two distinct impressions when the com pass points are only half a line, or the twelfth of an inch, apart, the tip of the finger when they are one -line apart Other spots vary still more widely; this distance at the lips is two lines; the tip of the nose, three lines; the cheek, five lines; palm of the hand, five lines; fore head, ten lines; back of the hand, 14 lines; chest, 20 lines; back and thigh, 30 lines. If, however, this experiment is repeat ed with a pair of compasses capable by slight pressure of pricking, it will be found that there is no corresponding dif ference between the parts in their sensi bility to pain. On the contrary, in places where the sense of touch is most keen, the sense of pain is in the first instance at least deadened, and the parts most callous in discriminating the double touching points are by no means the least alive to the sensation excited by their pressure. The tip of the tongue has 50 times the tactile discrimination of the arm, but the arm is more sensitive to a sharp point applied with moderate pressure to the Bkin than either the tongue or the finger and is at least' as alive to the presence of a very light body, a hair or feather, drawn along the surface. Curiously enough, the right hand, which is more sensitive to touch than the left, is less sensitive to temnerature.

Simpson, Secretary of the Board of Education of San Francisco, Cal., writes: "I have found Peruna an ideal tonic. Some months ago I suffered with neurasthenia (systemic catarrh), caused by too close application to office work. My system seemed worn out and I felt far from well. I found Peruna benefited me very much. It built up the entire system and made me feel like a new man. I believe it is well worthy the high praise be stowed upon it." J. A. Simpson.

Every one goes to them men, women, priests and children. The cafe is the cen ter of social life. It is there that the policy of the government is discussed, the latest play criticised and business transacted. At 4 o'clock in the after noon it is with difficulty that a seat can be had in one of these jpopular meeting places, for at that hour every Viennese partakes of his afternoon coffee, which fills the place of the Englishman's 5 o'clock tea. These cafes are regular reading rooms. Some of them take as many as 500 differ ent periodicals, and often 15 copies of the same paper some popular Austrian or foreign sheet are on file. Let a foreign er enter, ami the experienced waiter im mediately recognizes his nationality. If he be an American, a New York daily is brought to him; if a Frenchman, a Paris boulevard paper is laid before him, and so on. If a Russian enters, cigarettes" are at once produced. Cafes are for the Viennese a second home, and they all have two kinds of cli entsthe stammgaste, or habitues, and the laufende, or transients. The habi tues, commonly called wirthaus-bruder (cafe brothers) have tables reserved for them, and woe betide the man who ven tures to take possession of this sacred property! There are many Viennese who for the past 30 or 40 years have sat at the same table, in the same corner, day after day, drinking the same brew of beer or brand of wine and smoking the same sort of tobacco in the same old pipes. A stammgast generally spends from three to four hours every day at his cafe, the natural result being a great loss of time and money. But the Viennese are not miserly. They live tip to the German proverb which seems to have been written on purpose for them, "Le ben und Ieben lassen" ("Live and let live").
