Aa a Rule, It Is Caused by Nervous or Digestive Trouble. It Is nirely. if ever, that palpitation Is due to niiy disease or weakness of tlie lien it It Is almost Invariably the result of um'voiis or digestive trouble. The heat ' the heart arises within It self. There are nerves hi the muscles of the heart, mid they regulate Its heating, although the speed or rate of the heating Is not of their choosing. If they nere not held tu cheek they would set a rate about double that which is actually maintained. The heart is supplied from the hrnin with two pairs of regulating nerves. One pair, the cardio-motor nerves, act only to spur up the heart to quicker action. They are usually inactive, wait inn the occasion for applying tbe spur. The other pair, the eardlo-lnhlb-Itury nerves, are always In action. It bus been said that the heart runs In a pair of tightly held reins, and the simile Is true, for these nerves check the speed, r-'ear, worry, disorder of the stomach or nervous system, cause these ciirdio-inhlbltory nerves to relax; then the heart begins to race. There Is tiothiin; the matter with the heart Itself, and no one need lie alarm ed about that organ Just because It beats too rapidly. Its palpitation is due to a psychological or a physical cause, something that has caused the relaxation of the reins and allowed tbe cardio-motor nerves to apply the spur. BANKER PONIES.

Along Albemarle sound, on the North Carolina coast, there Is mile after mile of low, sandy shore, where nothing grows except a course grass, a few salt water weeds and wild parsley. On these banks lives u strange breed of half wild horses, known as "banker ponies." These creatures are general ly about twice tbe size of Shetland ponies. Every year the herd owners drive the "bankers" into pens, brand tbe foals with the proper mark und cutcb some of tbe older animals to sell to the dealers. North Carolinians say that the beasts must be starved Into eating grain, bay or grass, for tuey have al ways lived ou the rank salt marsh grass of the marshes and on tish. ' They catch the Hsb for themselves nt low tide. With their hoofs they dig deep boles in tbe sand below high water mark. When the tide falls they greedily devour the Bsb that are stranded in these boles. Often tbey fight briskly over an especially tempt ing morsel. In captivity these strange horses are Intelligent, but seldom are even In temper. Once tamed, they make excel lent draft animals, for they have a strength that is disproportionate to their size.

Does the word Indian convey to you the picture of a person with black hair, black eyes and dark skin? Then change your opinion at once. In Mexico there are many Indians who possess nune of the. aforemen tioned characteristics that are so often associated with tbe Indian. The Mex ican Indians that are not dark tiro called the Mayas. They have fair skins, blue eyes and light bair. The only Indian characteristics that they possess are their high cbeek bones, their wide mouth, slanting forehead and straight, Indian-like bair and shape of nose. The Mayas Inhabit tbe Sierra Madre mountains in the lower part of Sonora. They differ in many ways from all other tribes of ludinns. They are sup posed to be the descendants of tbe j crew and passengers of a Swedish ves sel wrecked on the Mexican coast long before tbe birth of Columbus. Although quite primitive, their mo rality Is high. They cultivate some corn and garden truck In the valleys and are beginning to raise many limes for export. The men nre large and well formed, and some of the women' are quite handsome. They all retain some traces of their Swedish ancestry and some are really fair haired and fair skluued. All are fairer than tbe average Indian. Buffalo Express, Wasted Mustard. It Is stated that a member of a Grin of famous mustard manufacturers once remarked that it was not the mustard used, but the quantity that is wasted, which makes their trade a successful business. Usually more of this condi ment is mixed than will be wanted and, as it soon turns discolored, dries and loses Its pungency, tbe mustard is thrown away. This waste may to a great extent be saved if care is taken to gaugo more accurately than is com mon the quantity of mustard likely to be wanted for a meal. To prevent un sightly discoloration if kept longer, mix wltb milk. It Is always disagreeable to see a mustard pot clogged round tbe mouth with stale mustard. New York Mail. Fits His Case Exactly.
