fought campaign.
Great interest was centered in the
contest and a total of 812 votes were
cast. Three out of the five wards

and fifth wards were sufficient to
overcome those against the measure

Under the new charter the city is
to be governed by three commission

The city manager will be accounta

Drs. Loir and Legagueux of Paris
tested vinegar as a destroyer of the
germs of typhoid fever. That thej are
killed by a mixture of wine and water

These luvestigators prove uow that
twenty grams of vinegar to a liter of
water kill the typhoid bacillus In au

practical Inference may be drawn con

A liter Is equivalent to about a quart

a third of an ounce. So If lettuce or

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that Is by constitutional rem
edies. Deafness is caused by an in
flamed condition of the mucous lining
of the Eustachian Tube. When this
tube is inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when
it is entirely closed. Deafness is l,e
result, and unless the inflammation
can be taken out and this tube re
stored to its normal condition, hear
ing will be destroyed forever: nine
cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed con
dition of the mucous surfaces.

Being Good Elocutionist Doe. Not
Make a Good Actor.
Of all the things to eschew, elocu
tion schools stand first. Actors should
know nothing of the rules of elocution
as taught In any school of which I have
ever beard. I can ulways tell at the
first glance whether an actor Is a stu
dent of elocution. No good elocutionist
was ever a good actor. That Is, no good
reciter and elocution schools product
only reciters is ever a good actor.
Hecitlng and nctlug are two entirely
different arts. The reciter Is never
natural, never can be. Awhile ago oua
of the most distinguished professors ol
elocutiou in America he had the chail
of elocution at one of our biggest uni
versities c ame to be an actor. It was
thought that he would be something
wonderful, because of his knowledge
aud gift of elocution. He went back
to teaching. He could do that better
than most, but his acting was bad. Ali
the rules of elocution nil actor ever
needs can be obtained In singing les
sons. Now. proper enunciation of words
Is a different matter. An actor should
not have to be taught that, but If he
does need It It Is a pretty bad need,
and be should never rest until he bus
lost all slovenly habits. Some of my
friends think I am too severe on this
poiut. I am not One cannot be too
severe. It Is clean cut work, perfect
in Its smallest details, that makes for
perfect Illusion on the stage, and I am
always for sucb work. Henrietta

A Tragic Wedding Ring.
A tragic story of a forgotten wed
ding riug is told In tbe "Lives of the
Lindsays." He should have been at

Earl of Kalcurras, was quietly eat

the ring. A friend present gave birr

placed ou the bride's tiuger. After tbt
ceremony was over tbe countess glanc

fainted away, and the omen inudeBUch

probably brought about its own ful

It Takes Five Minutes For the Best of
Them to Get Under.
Submarines ore not easy to handle
and It takes considerable skill and
during to navigate tbem successfully.
Many people have the Idea that as soon
as a submarine sees nn enemy, the
officer in command gives a sharp order,
and almost before it has left his lips
the submarine is diving ueneatb the
As a matter of fact the very latest
submarines take a clear five minutes
before tbey can become submerged.
Many of the older submarines took ten
minutes to a quarter of nn hour to
Tbe reason that a submarine cannot
dire quickly, like a fish. Is because the
water which must be let Into her tanks
to make ber heavy enough to sink,
must be let hi comparatively slowly-.
If it were let In with a rush the
chances are the vessel would not go
down on au even keel, but would heel
over and be In great danger of dis
aster. If water, too, were let In too
quickly there Is a danger of letting in
too much and In that case the sub
marine would sink like a stone to the
bottom of the sea.
The depth at which a submarine
travels under the sea is regulated by
horizontal rudders. The water that Is
let in the ballast tanks is Just suffi
cient to "balance" tbe vessel in the
sea without risiug or sinking. London
