Though hun dreds of thousands are out of employ ment, yet never before was It so hard to get a good employee for almost any position ns today. Everywhere peopl are asking where to find a good serv ant, a polite and etticlent clerk, an hon est cashier, a good stenographer who ran spell and punctuate and Is general ly well Informed. Managers and super intendents of great Institutions every where are hunting for good people to fill all sorts of iK)sltions. They tell us that It Is almost Impossible to find effi cient help for any department. There are hundreds of applicants for every' vacant place, but they either show signs of dissipation, are rude or gruff In manner are slouchy or slip shod In dress, are afraid of hard work, lack education or training or have some fatal defects which bar them out. Even If they are given positions very few are able to hold them, and so this great ar my tramps about from store to store, from office to factory, wondering why others succeed when they fall, why oth ers get the positions when they are de nied. The head of one large commercial es tablishment says that the blunders and mistakes of Its employees cost $23,000 a year to correct, notwithstanding his utmost vigilance. Success. Food of Prehistoric Mat, Upon examining some skulls dating back from the stone age Mr. Charters White, M. U. C. 8., noted that several of the teeth, although quite free from carles, were thickly coated with tartar. It occurred to him that It would be possible by a rough analysis to Identify any particles of food that might be im bedded In this natural concrete and so reveal the character of the ailment partaken of by prehistoric man. Dis solving the tartar in a weak acid, ft residue was left which, under the mi croscope, was found to consist of corn husk particles, hairs from the outside of the husks, spiral vessels from vege tables, particles of starch, the point of a fish tooth, a conglomeration of oval cells probably of fruit, the barblets of down and portions of wool. In addition to this varied list were some round red bodies the origin of which defied detection and many sandy particles, some relating to quartz and some to flint. These mineral fragments were very likely attributable to the rough stones used In grinding the corn and would account for the erosion of the masticating surfaces, which In many cases was strongly marked. This luqulry Into the food of men who lived not less than 4.CKJ0 years ago Is a mat ter of great nrchandoglcal Interest Chambers' Journal. Pour Opera Glasaes. "Cheap opera glasses are an abomi nation," said nn eye specialist recently. "There Is no doubt ab6ut this. I have made a special study of the matter. Lots of eyes are nearly ruined by them. I find this particularly true of young girls who go a great deal to the theater and who seem to think they must have opera glasses. To their way of think ing an opera glass la an opera glass, and that's all there Is to It So they buy cheap ones and then wonder why they have such headaches. "Unless the very best lenses are used I should advise everybody to taboo op era glasses. The farther from the stage one Is the better and more perfect the glasses should be. Exactly the reverse of this Is actually the case, for the peo ple who sit In the rear seats or In the balcony are usually the ones who have the poorest glasses. A performance viewed with the naked eye Is much more satisfactory, to my way of think ing. An opera glass gives but a limit ed view, and only the one object on which It Is focused Is visible. I don't see why people use even the best of them." Philadelphia Record. The Minister Woa. A minister was one day walking along a road, and, to hla astonishment, he saw a crowd of boys sitting In front of a ring with a small dog In the cen ter. When he came up to them, he put the following question: "What are you doing to tire dog?" One little boy said, "Whoever tella the biggest lie wins it" "Oh," said the minister, "I am sur prised at you little boys, for when I was like you I never told a lie." There was silence for awhile until one of the boys shouted. "Hand him up the dog!" London Leader. Over In Sweden.

No cplctcx Transplanting lUicTreen. A woman of means who owned a handsome country house on the Hud son was very fond of. two beautiful beech-trees which stood near her residence. A few seasons ago she bought a house at Newport, and de cided that thereafter she would spend her summers at that resort of fashion. Accordingly she sold her place on the Hudson; but in parting with It she could not bear to leave behind her favorite beeches. She consulted a linn that is en gaged in the business of moving large trees, and they undertook the task of transporting the two full-grown beeches from eastern New York to Newport. The undertaking was car ried out with great care; the trees were taken up, placed on scows, car ried down the Hudson and up Long Island Sound to Newport, where they were set up before the woman's new residence. A quantity of the soil of their former home was brought along to sustain them until they should become accustomed to their new sur roundings, and the trees received every reasonable care and assistance. The experiment was a complete suc cess. The moving of these two trees is said to have cost their owner thirty thousand dollars, and the feat is proli ably the long-distance record for the transplanting of trees.

To Buffer the most excruciating pains, to lose the use of limbs, and to have the joints swollen Hnd disfigured is the lot of the victim of rheuma tism. Uric acid in the blood Is the cause of rheuma tism. If the kidneys are active, they remove the uric acid. That is their special work. If, on the other hand, tho kidneys are deranged, there Is sure to be uric acid in the blood and rheumatic pain through the body. No amount of liniment will ever cur rheuma tism.
