WHY NEW ORLEANS
CITY 18 LOGICAL POINT FOR WORLD'S PANAMA EXPOSITION. Its Geographical Position and Man Other Considerations Mark It at Most Suitable Spot for Dedi cation of Great Work. Public sentiment has decided that the completion of the Panama Canal Jn 1915 shall bo celebrated with a creat International Exposition in which all the nations of. the world may participate; and the question of where this Exposition is to bo held will be settled by Congress at It ap proaching session. New Orleans and San Francisco are contesting for the honor of hold ing fhis Exposition, and both cities riaveVguaranteed immense sums of money as an evidence of their ability to finance eo gTeat an enterprise. An Exposition worthy of the term "World's' Fair," such as New Orleans proposes to build, will be a great ed ucational movement. Its success as ucb, however, will depend entirely rpon the percentage of our popular tion who can secure its educational advantages, this In turn, depends up on its location, as the time in travel ing U and from the Exposition, and theost in railroad and Pullman fares, are the most important factors. Considering these matters, New Orleans' claims to being the "Logi cal Point" for this Panama Exposi tion, setm to be fully substantiated by the following facts: New Orleans Is 500 miles from the center of population In the United Ftates. San Francisco Is 2,500 miles distant therefrom. Within a radius of 500 miles from New Orleans there are 17,500,000 people. Within the same radius from fc'Qjr Francisco there are only 2,000,000. yithin a radius of 1,000 miles from New .Orleans, there are 05,000,000. Within the Fame radius from San Francfsco there are only C.000,000. At an average of 900 miles from New Orleans, there are 70 of our principal cities with a combined population of 20.000,000. Averaging 00 miles from San Francisco there are only 8 large cities', with a com bined population of just 1,000,000. The average distance of all these cities to New Orleans is 792 miles, to San Francisco 2.407 miles. Over 75 per cent, of the people of the United States could go to an Exposition there at an average ex pense for railroad fare of $12.50, as ngainst an average of $37.50 to the Pacific Coast; and for several mil lions of our people, the Pullman fare and Dining Car expenses alone, for a trip to San Francisco, would amount'to more than all their trans portation expenses for a trip to New (jrkans. This is on important public ques tion to be settled by Congress at the tffcslon which convenes in December. Mit.y of oiir readers will wish to visit V tills World's Panama, Exposi tion, end if held in New Orleans a great many more could sparo tho tiaio and money for the trip than could go to San Francisco.

Dut they were -unable to help mo there, I used all tcp) medicines that I could see but becrjtfe worse and worse. I had an Inflammation which mado me almost crazy with pain. When I showed my foot to my friends they would get really frightened. I did not know what to do. I was so sick and had be come so nervous that I positively lost all hope. "I had seen the advertisement of tho Cuticura Remedies a great many times, but could not make up my mind to buy them, for I had already used so many medicines. Finally I did decide 1o use the Cuticura Remedies and I tell you that I was never so pleased as .-when I noticed that, after having used two sets of Cuticura Soap, Cuticura Ointment and Cuticura Pills, the en tiro inflammation had gone. I was compiotely cured. I should bo only too glad if people with similar disease would come to me and find out tho truth. I would only recommend them to use Cuticura.

She knew it was a stranger because he didn't look a bit like Deacon Thompson or Elder Steb bins. She judged his age to be twenty-five. Sho judged he was five-feet-something tall. She was going to judge whether he was good looking or not when he turned his back to her and walked out. "An ill bred man!" said Miss Kitty to herself. The next thing was a conversation between two small boys. They spoke of the ice going out of the river, and one of them asserted that tho suck ers were running "to beat the band." Any one could catch a barrel of them Jn half an hour. Miss Kitty decided to go fishing the very next afternoon. Down by the old sawmill was the plaoe, and she wouldn't have to take any boy with her to bait her hook. Miss Kitty Havens was an orphan who had been "brought up" by her Uncle Elijah and Aunt Mary. Nine teen years old, fair looking, and most of the villagers would look after her as she walked along the streets and eay something about somebody being "sxuarter'n a whip." That was the highest of praise. They couldn't have got off anything better after thinking over it for a week. "Uncle 'Lije, the suckers are run ning," announced the girl when she reached home. "Well, let 'em run," was the quaint reply. f "But I'm going fishing tomorrow." "Well, don't fall in and get drownded." "But there'n a stranger In town. I saw him at the postomco.'" "Ye-ss. I heard he was down at the eld mill fishing. Ho's stopping at the tavern, and he won't tell Mr. Stevens where he comes from or any thing about himself. lie just said he'd tako the best room in the house and didn't care for expense. I bear that Constable Baker thinks he's a suspicious character." "He must be," said Aunt Mary. "A man who won't answer questions is bound to be a pirate in disguise. Miss Kitty Walked Right Up to the Stranger. Elijah, you want to see that, the kitch en door is fastened every night until he leaves town." "Well, I know one thing," added Miss Kitty, in a very determined way, "There's only one good place at the old mill to sit and fish. I'm going to have that place. If this person gets there first he's Just got to take him Eelf off. Strangers mustn't think they can come here and crowd girls out of their fishing places." Uncle 'Lije hunted up pole and line and dug bait, and next afternoon at two o'clock Miss Kitty was at the mill. On the way down she passed a boy with a string of fourteen suck ers, and he halted long enough to say: "They are thicker than fleas, down there, and you orter soe that fellow haulin them out! He don't even have to spit on his bait!" "What fellow?" was asked. "Why, the feller who's stoppin' at the tavern. He's got the best place, and he's hangiu' right to it like a hog!" So the stranger was there, was he? And he's got the bst place and was sticking tq it? Well, he would get a Jar. She wouldn't speak to him, of course, but there are other ways of jarring a man. A fixed look and a toss of tha head has done It times out of mind. Yes; he was there. He sat on the beam, and he was using a patent pole and reel. That alone will provoke ire in any villager's breast. The way to haul up a fish Is to haul him, instead of turning the handle of a coffee mill for fifteen minutes. Miss Kitty walked right up to the stranger. He didn't even turn his head. On the contrary, he caught an other sucker. She coughed lightly. Another sucker. She got ready her pole and line. A third sucker! She felt like striking the man over the ehouldcrs with the rol. but walked off up stream. He had the deep hole, and there was no use fishing in the ripples. "If I can't fish, then he shan't!" was the determination arrived at, and presently a log came drifting down to spin around In an eddy. Then came a board, a beam and a slab. Ho knew the girl was throwing them In from the other end of the mill, but he didn't look her way. Ho simply suspended his fishing and sat looking over the river. Nothing could be done wilh a man like that, and after an hour Miss Kitty went home. When she had told her story, which she did almost with tears Jn her eyes, Uncle Elijah drawled: "Well, thar's folks as is nigh-sight-ed, and thar's folks as is deaf. Mebbe he didn't see nor hear you." "Didn't see nor hear a girl!" "And a girl like her!" added Aunt J Mary. "I'll make him see and hear tomor row if I have to hit him with a club! If he's in my place again I'll throw all the old mill into the water to both er him!" The morrow came and tho stranger was there. The girl had come half an hour earlier, but &o had he. He was pulling out the suckers the same old way. No wooden Indian could have been more heedless of her pres ence. She walked to the far end of the mill, gathered all the drift wood in sight and heaved it into the water. The deep hole soon became unten able. She was rejoicing when there came a flash of lightning and a rum ble of thunder. A sudden spring storm was at hand. Almost before she could seek the shelter of the mill it grew dark and the rain began to fall heavily. A thunder storm was the one thing Miss Kitty Havens was afraid of. She sat down on a beam and cowered. It seemed as if night had set in for good. The lightning was fierce and the thunder awesome. In two minutes the stranger was for gotten. "I shall surely be struck dead!" moaned the girl, "and I know I shouldn't have beeu so mean to that man. He didn't know that, he had my place. He ought to have seen a girl when she stood so near him, but per haps he's almost blind." A tree on the other side of the river was si ruck by a thunderbolt, and the old mill shook and trembled. The girl screamed out, and the next moment she felt a hand on hers. It must be the stranger's. "Say, it was moan of me!" sho said as the thunder died away. No answer, but ho held the hand with firmer pressure. "You had my fishing placft, you know, and 1 was inad about it. (Jlrls do get mad sometimes, you know. That is,1 I do. I stood and stcod and stood, and you wouldn't notice me. Hadn't lj rteht to be mad?" No answer. "But I'm going to be killed, and I don't want anybody to be glad of it. I threw all that stuff into the river to spite you. I just hated you. If you were a girl would you do like that?" "!I'm! H'm!" was the reply. "What? Can't you talk?" "I guess so, if I try." "And can you see and hear?" "Both." "Will will the lightning hit the mill?" "I don't think so. The worst seems to be over. Yes, 1 can see clear sky." "Then, sir," said Miss Kitty, as she pulled her hand away and reached her feet, "If I am not to be struck and killed I want to know why you didn't speak to me?" "Ob, I saw at once that you were snippy and conceited and needed tak ing down n peg. I am Mr. Charles Earle, of Boston, and I believe you are Miss Kitty Havens." "No, sir, 1 am Miss Snippy Havens, and you please to remember it! You can return to your fishing!" "But, Miss Havene " "And I, sir, am going home!" "But during the storm" "But the storm has passed and 1 am Bnlppy! Fish, sir fish!" And two years later, when they flunlly became engaged, the snippy girl said to the artist: "If you hadn't tried to take me down a peg we might have been married a whole year ago. That is, we might if there had been a thunder storm and a preacher together!" Finally Opened Safe. Thny have a new fireproof and burglar-proof room for department records at fire headquarters In New York." Com missioner Waldo wanted a certain record the other day and sent a clerk for it, relates tho Sun. The clerk couldn't open the steel door, and the lock had got out of commission. He tinkered at It for an hour, while the head of the department waited. "Send down to the Yorkvllle court and get a burglar," a visitor suggested. A locksmith was sent for Instead. He worked at it for two hours, but could not open it. Then he did as a bur glar might do. Ho drilled hole? around the lock and got the door open. Extravagances.

INFLUENCE OF THE MOTHER mm A ItfX Well to Remember That She Is Ever a Model of Behavior to tho Children. It is hard for a young mother, who has not yet overcome the wayward tendencies of her own youthful nature, to realizo the influence she exerts over her little one. She is constantly surrounded by critical imitators who copy her morals and manners. As the mother Is, so are her sons and daughters. If a family 'of children are blessed with an intelligent moth er, who is dainty and refined In her manner, and docs not consider it nec essary to be one woman in the draw ing room and an enfirely different per son' In her everyday life, but who is a true mother and always a tender, charming woman, she will Invariably see her habits ofw speech and perfect manners repeated in her children. Great, rough men and noisy, busy boys will always tone down their voices and step quietly and try to be more mannerly when she stops to give them a kind word and a pleasant smile. For a true woman will never fall to say and do all the kind, pleas ant things she can that will In any way help to lift up and cheer ttibsSi whose lives are shaded with care and tell. The mother of today rules the world of tomorrow. Managing a Husband. Men are like children; they want managing, although you must never let them dream that you think so. No child likes to be ordered about, no man will endure coercion. But man aging! It Is an art so subtle, so elu sive, that'few women understand even the rudiments of it. Sisters mine, let us reason together, says Woman's Life. In every human being there Is 'a spark of the divine; it is yours to fan that spark Into a flame that Is managing a man it is to get the very best out of him there is to have, and not two women in ten can do It Do not think .that there is anything unworthy In managing a man to bring out the best is A high vocation. Only let us see to It that we are worthy of It. There are women who have made angels of men, but at the cost of their own divinity. There is room for more than one unselfish per son In a family. It Is a shame for people who have In their lives a consciousness of love and character and courage, to fall In to the wasteful folly of unhapplness about the unimportant.'-Margaret De-land.

DAME NATURE HINTS When the Food Is Not Suited. When Nature gives her signal that something Is wrong it Is generally with the food. The old Dame is al ways faithful and one should act at once. To put off the change Is to risk that which may be irreparable. An Arizona man says: "For years I could not safely eat any breakfast. I tried various kinds of breakfast food, but they were all soft, starchy messes which gave me dis tressing headaches. I drank strong coffee, too, which appeared to benefit me at the time, but added to tho head aches afterwards. Toast and coffee were no better, for I found the toast very constipating. "A friend persuaded me to quit the old coffee and the starchy breakfast foods, and use Fostum and Crape-Nuts instead. I shall never regret taking his advice. I began using them three months ago. "The change they have worked In me Is wonderful. I sow have no mere of tho distressing sensations in ray. stomach after eating, and I never have headaches. I havo gained 12 pounds In weight and feel better in every way.
