WORDS CHANGED IN MEANING Epithets Once Complimentary Have Degenerated Into Insults, With the Passing Centuries. Words, like other things, change with time, and there are epithets once complimentary which have de generated into instdts. If one of our Anglo-Saxon forefathers had been called a silly idiot he would not have taken it amiss quite the reverse, in fact, for in those days silly meant blessed or happy, and idiot meant nothing more than a private person. Nor would he have taker offense had.1 you referred to him as a crafty swindler, for these are both words that have changed their meaning in the oourse of centuries. Crafty once implied not shiftiness but skill, whilst a swindler was a man who was good at driving a bargain. Other words which, though now uncompli mentary, were once quite the reverseV are officious, which formerly meant land, and conceited, which meant full of ideas or originality. But the Saxon warrior would have devised a nornble deatn for vou bad you ventured to call his wife a lady I This word has gone up in the scale, whilst the others have one down. It really means a kneader of dough, 02 a bakehouse maid. HIS DISABILITY A negro veteran sauntered into the Pittsburgh chapter headquartera of the American Red Cross. "What can we do for you?" in quired one of the workers. 'Tee in trouble and need some help." "Were you in the army? You know we cannot do anything for you unless you are disabled. Do you have a disability V "1 should say I have. I've got ft wife and child " But as liability and disability could not be reconciled in this case the veteran departed somewhat dis appointed.

Backache is only a simple thing at first; But if you find 'tis from the kidneys; That serious kidney troubles j may follow; That dropsy or Bright's disease may be the fatal end. You will be glad to know the following experience. 'Tis the honest statement of a resident of this locality. C. C. Thompson, miner, S79 Tonto St.. Globe, Ariz., says; "My kidneys a2ted too freely and the secretions scalded in passage. There was a steady, dull ache across my kidneys and my back Was weak. Sharp pains caught me through my back when I stooped. One box of Doan's Kid ney Pills put me in fine condition. Doan's Pills are reliable for kid-; ney trouble." 60c. at all dealers. Foster- Milburn Co., Mfgrs., Buffalo, N. Y. CHOSE SERPENT AS SYMBOL Early Physicians, Supposed to Be Di vinely Directed, Evidently Had Not Put Away Fetishism. In ancient Greece there were many legends about the gods curing patients, and the physicians were supposed to be divinely directed a? to treatment, says the Detroit News. Fetishism and symbolism prevailed, and a serpent was chosen as a symbol of life and health. The Egyptians also used this symbol, and the He brews, on the occasion when Mose held up the serpent in the wilder ness. In the recent war this symbol was used to represent medicine in tht army. After the teachings of Christ had spread over the world the old godj were replaced by Christian sainta The Virgin and the martyrs were in voked to cure disease. Some ordert of monks practiced pharmacy and medicine until a decree was issued bj the church forbidding them to' uss knive9. This left the surgery to the barbers, hence the origin of the red and white barber pole the white foi bandages and red for blood. ODD WAY TO MAIL MONEY A $5 hill was received at the Bath (Maine) post office, which wai mailed in Boston as ordinary mail with no covering whatever. The ad dress, that of a youthful member of Bath's foreign colony, was written on one side of a piece of paper at tached to the bill by means of a post age stamp and a message was on the. reverse side. The bill, however, did not make the entire journey exposed to the gaze of the postal clerks. Some one in the -Boston office slipped it1 into an official envelope, addressee to Postmaster Owen in Bath,, re questing him to advise the recipient as well as the sender of the money as to the proper methods for send ing cash by mail.

On the dark enamel of one door appears this in scription, in Old English gold let tering about an inch and a half in height : 'Tor what shall it profit a man ii he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul ? Or what shall' 8 man give in exchange for his' soul! St Mark 8:36-37' On the other door is: "For God so loved the world, thai He gave His only begotter Son thai whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, hut have everlasting life St. John 3 :16." Baltimore Sun. WELL, WAS HE? Authors often receive curious let ters about their books. In a collec tion of such letters published in ths New York Herald, one received by Ernest Poole 13 perhaps the most amusing. It reads: "I have read a book of yours and it has occurred to me that you might be my uncle, Ern Poole. Uncle Ern left home about ten years ago. He said he meant to write for a living, but we have never heard of him syice till I read your book. Now if you are my "Uncle Ern I want to tell you what I think of the -way you left my poor widow mother and have not even written her since Dear air if you are not Uncle Ern please pardon this presumptuous letter but if you axe, you're a coward and sneak and a quitter for running away like that. If you are not, please excuse this."
