RELIEVING THE SITUATION In res-pon&a to the applications that ara being made to to tha Treasury department by banks in western cities, calling for de posits of public money to uje over tha crop-moving season. Secretary Cortelycu has said that the banks must co-operate, with the Treasury in relieving t! i siiua tion by additional issues of national bark notes There appears to be a general disposiJjn to comply with Mr Cortelyou's wishesj The most urgent call of all can e from the banks of Minneapolis at . St Paul. The Minnesota bankers who con ferred with the president and Sect eUry Cortelyou at the White ITouse on Monday night, met Secretary Cortelyou in New York Tuesday, and the announcement was made yesterday in general terms that Washington and New York would come to the re'ief of the Northwestern banks, Secretary Cortslyou had another talk with the prtsi lent at the White House Monday and it was said afterward that the government would deposit $1,000,000 with banks in Minneapolis and St. Paul, the understanding being that the banks there will increase their issues of circulat ing notes up to the par value of their capital stock. If necessary, government funds already deposited with New York banks to meet the recent crisis will, by consent of the New York bankers con cerned, be transferred to the West to as sist in the crop-moving. CALLING THEM IN The appearance of the new United States $10 gold pieces, which omits from its design the motto, "In God We Trust." bids fair to have but a short life and v. ill therefore be much sought after by col lectors. It has already brought forth a strong protest from the citizens' depart ment of the Christian Endeavor Union, which met this week n Washington This department passed resolutions asking the Treasury department and the president for a recall of all the coins from which the motto has been omitted, re-coinao of them, destruction of the dies omitting the motto, and a discontinuance of making coins that omit the mot'o. The design 'Cumplained of was made by the now dead scufptor, St. Ganders, anu was approved by the president. Tl.e Secular League has campaigned for a tang ti re to have the motto omitte j from all coins. As a means of preserving the forests. President Roosevelt wiil recommend the abolition cf the duty on wood pu!p and pulp wood. He reached this decision to day, after a conference with a committee from the American Publishers' Associa ti on, who came to the White Mouse to lay before him a complaint against the paper trust. The president said he would rec ommend the removal of thu tan!r r.ot to benefit the publishers, nut to sav. the f orests.

GROWING CHILDREN Atlftc To Mothers of HeldliiK Perhaps the most Important prin ciple involved in the cure of a child proper nourishment. How many delica e children do we meet on our treet with color les cheeks and thin little leg and arm. It U very plain to be Keen that rapid growth takes alt tbeir strength and their Utile bodies are not receiving buftlelent nourishment to make them welK btrotjtf and robust. We want to say to tha parents of all such children in Belding that our oelicious cod liver and iron prepara tion,' Vlnol, will build up delicate children, till out holiow cheeks and make them utiong, robust and rosy. Vinol makes new vitality, Miuml llcsh and musde tissue and pure, rich i ed blood, and children love it. This is because Vinol is a delicious tasting cod liver preparation without oil. made hy a scientific, extractive and concentrating process from fresh cods' livers, thus combining wlth.peptonate of iron all the medicinal, healing-, body building elements of cod liver oil, but no oil As a body builder and strength cre ator for old people, delicate children, wesk, run down persons, after sick ness, and for chronic coughs, colds, bronchitis, and all throat and lung troubles Vinol is unexcelled. Try Vinol on our offer to return money if it fails to give satisfaction. Connell Bros , druggists, Belding, Mich. NEW METHOD OF ECONOMY. Excuse Made by Mr. Caudle Was Real ly Rather Neat. "Ah, ha!" said Mrs. Caudle If. a lady who had lost a little of the bloom of Kirlhood as she pointed her bony fin ger at her weak-kneed husband. "You have been drinking again. Don't .-deny it. I smell sensen on your breath." "Hut, my dear " 'That'll do. Some ere born to gov ern and some are born to be governf d. I was born to govern, although just now I'm not governing much." Caudle II. threw an apoplectio grin at his wife, swallowed two or three gasps and endeavored to explain: "I tell you, my dear, my present in hibitions are the result of a precon certed arrangement between " us whereby we were to economize." He found it necessary to stop here and 'wait for his grandiose statement to sift through his wife's pompadour. (How Mine. Pompadour must writhe in her grave to know those hideous deformities are her namesakes.) "You see, madam," he continued, "we I you we both agreed to econ omize, did we not?" "We did," and a pair of $15 false teeth snapped tight. "Well," said Caudle II., getting a little more self-confidence as he con tinued, "it is this way, madam. Drinks are 15 cents apiece. For the first time to-day I ascertained these same drinks sold two for a quarter." He waited a minute to see if his logic were soaking through the rat. "Since they were two for a quarter. I saved five cents by buying two. hence my present condition!" Den vet Times. Better Mind Her P's and G's. A little girl had been to Sunday school for the first time, and had been much Interested in the lesson, which had as Its foundation the text, "Tut your trust In the Lord, and place no trust In princes." About a week later when she re turned from kindfrgarten she found her mother busy helping the cook pie pare fruit to make jelly. She sat down to watch they were too busy to let her help and presently she heard her mother give an impatient exclamation. ."What is it, mamma?' she asked. "Oh, every one of those quinces Is bad at the core and I'm very much dis appointed for I had counted on them; 1 wanted to finish my jelly to-day." "I wish I had known" said the little girl with he wisest little, air. "I could have told you better mamma, for it was only last Sunday that Miss Hoi brook warned us to put our trust in the Lord and have no confidence in quinces!" Work of Electro-Magnet. In engineering works the electro magnet Is taking a very prominent place. This device dispenses with hooks, slings and other lifting appa ratus. Uy throwing a switch control ling the current the. magnet is ener gized and thereby attaches itself to the bars, castings, scrap or pig iron which it Is desired to lift. The magnet poles are shaped according to the na ture of the material to be raised. For heavy rails they are oblong and are slung from the crane hook by a short chain. Castings weighing over two tone are successfully handled by electro-magnets. Another use to which the electro-magnet is put is In breaking old castings so that they may be melt ed and utilized. To accomplish this the magnet Is made to lift and drop a steel ball weighing from one to six tons. French Scientist's Discovery. The French scientist. Dr. Forlin, has discovered that the light from a mercury vapor lamp, passing through two sheets of blue glass and reflected Into the eye by a large lens, reveals the Internal conditions Infinitely bet ter than the ordinary white light. My placing a screen with a pin hole be tween the light and the eye a mag nificent Image of the vessels at the back of the retina, which have hith erto been almost Invisible, has been obtained. The capillary value, the di ameter of which Is only two thous andths of a millimeter, are seen to distend with each heartbeat, and It Is even possible to count the blood globules. i fey I fit."' nVs.V V THOMAS JEFFERSON.
