Never did the world cull more loudly
for young men with force,-energy and
purpose, young men trained to do some
one thin?, thnu today. 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

mistakes of Its employees cost $23,000 a

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

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 the suburban rail

Foley's Honey at Tar
(orchUdrca,sate,turt. No cplctcx
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. Earl Mayo in
the June Woman's Home Companion.
White Man Turned Yellow.
Great consternation was felt by the
friends of M. A. Hogarty of Lexington
Ky., when they saw he was turning
yellow. His skin slowly changed
color, also bis eyes, and he suffered
terribly. Ills malady was Yellow
Jaundice. Ho was treated by the best
doctors, but without benefit. Then he
was advised to try Electric Hitters, the
wonderful Stomach and Liver remedy,
and he writes: 'After taking two bot
tles I was wholsy cured." A trial
proves its matchless merit for all

It may or may not bo a helpful word to

RHEUMATIC WARPED LIMBS.
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. It sometimes relieves, but cure can only be
brought about by setting the
kidneys right. The most effec
tive kidney remedy known to
man is Dr. A. W. Chase's Kid-
Th's Ih the synopsis ofthe case of MIhs Allie H. Sabin. one of Holding's popular
young ladies, "Aho writes the following after giving her glares nearly a year's trial;
"My work being close, my cyea became very painful which also caused nevpre
headaches. After trying several treatments with no results and having heard of Mr.
Medford as a reliable optician, I decided to purchase glasses from him. I did so and
they proved satisfactory in every way. From that time I have been entirely free from
headache and my eyes Improved wonderfully, enabling tne to do my work without effort."
The hundreds of letters received from w'ell pleased users, many of them having
tried other remedies as well as other opticians, prove that "Hedford'a (Classes" cannot
be bettered. They are the best
first one received will take precedence over the others. Therefore start now and send
it in early. Kemember everyone has an equal chance. It's your work that counts.
