V I 523855 a'-&.:;v..':::rfe. mm U3 asiss32Sxj cg8 FACIAL COMPARISON OF ROCKEFELLER, SR., AND JR. There Is a world of dlffereuco between the personal appearance of John I. Rockefeller and Umt of his only son, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. John, Jr., Is the Image of his mother. There Is not about the younger John a single fea ture, cither of face or form, Indicative of his kinship to John the elder. The younger John has a brond, full, heavy-featured countenance, with large eyes, wide ami protuberant forehead, big nose, big mouth, and full, heavy chin. He Is much taller than bis mother, but, like her, Is built on jjenerous lines. ' John I). Rockefeller has a sharp, Irregular, acquisitive set of features. Ills forehead Is low and receding, almost on a line with his long, keen nose. Its chin Is short and sharp, his muth small and pursed, his lips thin and kiis eyes small. His ears are long and thin quite different from those of John, Jr., which are thick and medium-sized. ; SETTLING THE STRIKE. If all labor difficulties could be ad justed with the celerity and decision displayed by Professor Jowett, the fa mous master of ltalllol, questions of employer and employo would not mani fest themselves In so violent a manner as Is frequent. The famous teacher was noted for his brevity of .sieech ii nd despatch of business, but these qnnlltles never shone to greater ad vantage than on the famous occasion of his dealing with the refractory washer women of nalllol. These worthy dames struck for Wgher wages In one department Twelve collars for a shilling was the statutory price. They came to present their claim to the master. ' "The washerwomen have come to see you," said the butler. "Show the ladles up," snld the mas tor. They clumped Into the room, to find him poking the Are. He turned round. "Will you wash twelve collars for a Shilling?" ho asked quietly. , They began to expostulate. He touched the bell ; In came the butler. "Show the ladles down." . "Presently the butler appeared again. "They seem very sorry, sir would like to Bee you again." "Show them up." The washerwomen found the master Intent, as before, on the Are grate. "Will you wash twelvo collars for a Hhllllng?" piped his cheery little voice. A stalwart speaker began to make explanations. He touched the bell. "Show these ladles down," he said, and down they went. Again the butler reappeared, expressing a hope that the waster would see the women again. "Certainly. Show them up." They entered the room for the third time. "Will you wash twelve collars for a shilling?" "We will!" thoy cried. . "Thank you good day, good dayl" said the master. "Knight, show these ladles down," and the strike was over, MEDICINES 07 JAPAH. Vomi Crow Properly Prepared Uaed aa Liver Hranlator. In Japau the lower orders of life not only supply meat, but they evince sundry othor peculiarities that rende I hem luvnluablo concomitants of clvlll cation. A few days ago a number of leoplo were seen gassing Intently toward (he upper llmiis or a large pine tree. Ntotmliui to learuthe secret of this un '"utmai" Interest, a man was observed de- aoendlng the tree, while a crow was furiously casing and beating about his bead; the it was seen that thejres ttassor had possessed himself of one of her brood, sa unprepossessing little chick, that no one could be Imagined fancying for a pet, says the Detroit News-Tribune. Asked what he intend ed dolni wits the young crow, he re plied that tt made excel leu t medicine for the blood: "Uni-no-micai-no au surl," to use his exact words.' To In sure the efficacy of the medicine, he ex plained, the bird must be taken before leaves the nest, If possible, or, If It has left the nest, before it gets to here It can drink water; for, he as serted, If It has of Itself taken water, loses all virtue as a blood cure. The process of preparing the remedy la, first to kill the crow, and, without leaning It, Incase the body In an air tight covering of cement or clay. The mold Is then baked for two or three days in a hot fire. When the clay coat Is removed, naturally the crow will be found to be black, a lump of pure char coal. This Is pulverized and converted Into pills of the "pinV order, which re very popular here as a blood regu lator. He reminded his Interlocutors that the medicine was very rare because of the difficulty of finding a crow that had not taken water." The man was perfectly sincere, and appeared extremely (iroud of his suc cess lu having secured the bird. He was reluctant to leave the tree lest there should be ' another one on the ground somewhere. Those who, since the brilliant achievements of the Japanese Red Cross Society In the last war, are accustomed to take for granted the advance of med ical Bclence In this country, will, of course, bear In mind that the practltion er under consideration had not at this line acquired membership In any legal ly recognized therapeutic fraternity; but probably his nostrum was quite as effective as much of the medicine that Is sold to a large constituency at a high er price In other portions of the globe. Another favorite mncdy for undlag- nosable ailments In this country Is hu man liver, and a citizen of the empire has Just been arrested on the charge of having killed several women as a means of obtaining this somewhat 'unusual commodity. This phase of Japanese life seems rather to Increase the ambig uity of the old aphorism that whether life Is worth living depends on the liver. At any rate, It may be Justly counted among the queer things of Japan, to relate of all which would necessitate going on ad Infinitum. BELIEVE IK SUN SPOTS. A Word About a Favorite Theory a to Short Crops. In the bottom of Its heart a good part of the financial community. cher ishes the suspicion that financial crises, especially when caused or accompanied by bad harvests, have something to do with "sun spots," says the New York Post The argument Is that these years of Intense solar activity come some where near once in ten years and so do panics; that ""sun spots" very prob ably cause abnormal seasons on our own planet and that abnormal seasons cause crop failures and trouble In the stock exchange. Nobody would need to take this seriously but for the fact that thirty-two years ago a very eminent English economist frankly asserted his belief in the theory. Prof. Jevons was so confident of Its applicability that In 1875 he . predicted a European panic tor 1879, because the "sun-spot activity" would then be again approaching a maximum. But bow about the facts? The year 1837 was one of sun-sixt maximum and also a year of commercial panic. Sun spots were very active In 1871, 1872 and 1873 and we know what happened In the markets. In 1883 a violent maximum was reached; Europe had a stock exchange panic In 1881! and the United States one In 1384. There was a famous "sun-spot year" in 18t)3 and, what Is more to the point, we are still In a period of solar activity and dis ordered markets. So far, this Is all very well ; but let us be thorough. The panic of 1857 was one of the worst on the list, and 1857 came in a period of sun-spot minimum. In 1800, when one of the worst of Eng land's financial crises occurred, solar activity was at the lowest level In a decade. A period of sun-spot minimum began In 1889 and continued Into the "Baring year," 1890. Evidently, sun spots do not always have the same effect Prof. Jevons thought that the effect was brought about through crop fail ures. The astronomers tell us, how ever, that so far as there Is any corre spondence, "cold years, rains and in undations appear to correspond to those when the sun Is quiet; dry and warm years to epochs of great solar activity." Now a dry year may ruin crops as well as a cold year; but as a matter of record among panic years, 1857 produced an abundant European harvest 1873 yielded a "bumper crop" In the United States, with 1872 a good second, and 18S4 was a year of unpar alleled wheat production all over the world. And what Is to be said of 1879 and 1897, when the world raised bumper crops" In the western hemi sphere and lost most of the harvest In the eastern? THE. BREADFBUTT TBEE. Doty Hot Bardeaaome. There seems to be a popular belief that the term duty comprises all that we most dislike to do; that If It Is a duty It must be unpleasant But look at your duties kindly and they will turn kindly faces to you. Don't worry over them, -don't be angry with them, aud they will smile at you In return and you will be happy with them. But bo careful not to make an Idol of duty, for Idolatry Is wrong.

Manye Way In Which Thla Strange Tropical Plant la Utilised. The breadfruit tree Is a native of Southern Asia, the West Indies, the south Pacific Islands and the Indian arehipelugo. In appearance It resem bles somewhat the wild chestnut It grows to the height of forty or fifty feet and has dark green leaves, many of them two feet In length, which are deeply divided Into pointed lobes. Hidden among the great leaves the breadfruit grows, says the Baltimore Sun. It Is nearly . spherical, often weighs four or more pounds and has a thick yellow rind. This fruit Is the I chief food of the South Sea Islanders. They seldom eat a meal without It The eatable part lies between the rind and the core and when fully ripe Is yellow and Juicy. The fruit Is better before It has fully matured, and the natives gather It while the pulp Is white. Before It Is ready for table use It must be roasted, when It looks like wheat bread and la both palatable and nutritious. Usually the fruit Is cut lu to three or four slices and roasted or baked In an oven. Frequently the people of a village Join In making a huge oven, In which several hundred breadfruits may be baked at one time. Thus they are all supplied with bread without Its cost ing any of them much labor. Prepared In this way the bread will keep for weeks. The breadfruit Is In season eight months of the year. When the season finally draws to a close the last fruits are gathered and made Into a ; sour paste called "mabel.'" This paste will keep for months and Is made Into balls, wrapped In leaves aud baked, Just as needed. Bread Is not the ouly product of the. breadfruit tree. From It cement, cloth, tluder and lumber are also obtained. A glutinous, milky Juice oozes from the trunk of the tree, which makes' an ex cellent cement when boiled with cocoa' nut oil. From the fibrous Inner bark a kind of coarse cloth la made, and the big leaves make good towels. The luni ber Is used for building bouses and many other purposes. Besides all this, the dried blossoms are used as tinder when fires are kindled. Mineral ' Wealth of the Sooth. About one-seventh ' of " the mineral production of the entire country comes from the Southern States. " pf bitu minous coal, the most valuable inlneraVj the South produces one-fourth, and of Iron about one-ninth. Its totaj coal resources amount to nearly 600,000, 000,000 tons, or more than onefourth of our estimated coal reserve. Of mineral chemical - materials the South supplies jnore, than one-half, chiefly phosphate rock, all of wbloh Is produced .In Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina, and nearly one-third of the mineral pigments. Of precious stones the whole country produces only $325,000 worth, with the South v fur nishing Its Talr share. The showing In Iron ore reserves Is quite as good; a safe minimum Is. 3,000,000,000 tons, or nearly one-third of the nation's total.' Of workable Iron ore the South contains one and one half v times as much as the famous Lake Superior district, and this does sot Include the deep lying southern ores. On a basis of value of product the South furnishes more than two-sevenths of our oil and more than one sixth of our gas. New York Sun. It Wasn't New York. A gentleman who had occasion to go to an inland New England village ten miles from a railroad was met at the station by an old fellow who look ed as If he might have Just awakened after Itlp Van Winkle sleep. Ills horse and buggy were In keeping with their owner's ancient appearance. "Here we air at last" said the driv er, when they finally came to three houses and a blacksmith's shop. "This Isn't much of a-place. Is It?" said the depressed stranger, looking around. "Oh, you don't see all o' -it from here," was the reply. "Thar's two mere houses over behind that hill thar, an a cooper's shop jest around that bend In the road thar. Come" to bunch 'em all together an' It's consld'able o' a place but o' course It ain't New, York." Woman's Home Companion. A Failure. Not long ago a man appeared at the capltol and had his card taken In to Senator Bailey. The Senator did not recognize the name, but, In accordance with his usual courtesy, came out to where the stranger was waiting. It took only a few minutes' conver sation to develop the fact that the In dividual simply . desired to make a "touch." It was the regulation "Been unfortunate, sah, and desire to get back to my own country, sah." "What Is your business, colonel?" the Senator Inquired. The rusty frock coat and black hat seemed to warrant the title. " 1 "Why, I am a gentleman. Senator," the stranger replied, pompously. "Oh, I see," the Senator said, pleas antly.
