:s Holdup Man Rob Him
of business a few years ago, it wasn’t
because he had lost his skill or his
nerve, but It was because he obeyed
bls mother. Hafner was In business
on Washington street near Rural
street when he was the victim of a
"holdup.” A customer in Hafner’s
poolroom gave him a $lO bill in paying
for his games, and Hafner took a wal
let. containing $175. out of his pock
et to get two fives. Two strangers
were standing near by and the larger
one grabbed the wallet.
At that moment Hafner’s mother
and one of his employes stepped In at
the bark door and as Hafner tried to
detain the robbers the employe ran
into a back room and got Hafner’s re
, volver. He gave Hafner the revolver
Just as the robbers went out of the
door, with Hafner In pursuit. As Haf
1 ner leveled the pistol his mother cried
"John!" Hafner says he has heard
that cry before, and he never in his
life disobeyed his mother, so when
she told him not to shoot he lowered
the pistol and watched the robbers
run away with his $175
"I am not sorry I obeyed my moth
er." said Hafner when the incident
was recalled. The loss of a few dol
lars is nothing when compared with
' the life of a man. even a robber. I did
not take up rifle and revolver shooting
tiecause of any desire to shed the
I blood of man or beast.”

Mrs. Vreeland, the boy's mother,

that bad girls influence him.

Especially Valuable on the Farm ano
Comparatively Cheap to Con
struct—Some Good Points
Noted In Its Favor.
, Many farmers are using concrete
for the making of walks, fence posts
and stock tanks, but this article de
scribes a new use for this valuable
material—the construction of refrig
erators from concrete mixture.
In building this refrigerator forms
of dressed plank are used. Make the
joints of the forms as tight as possible
so as to leave a smooth surface on the
finished work. Make the forms of the
size you require your refrigerator, but
Interior Arrangement.
•‘he wall should never be less thau
three inches thick. For doors, a frame
2x4 set and imbedded in the concrete
walls, with a tight fitting door of
plank, three double. Jams with a fac
ing of felt or rubber, forms almost an
air-tight box.
A wood partition separates the ice
box from the storage closet. Through
this wall is an oval opening Ix 2 feet.
Through this the cold air passes,
•while the water from the melting ice
never reaches the storage closet but
Is drawn through an open tap through
the bottom of the ice box.
One thing In favor of this refrigera
tor Is the Ice box on tho floor No
lifting Is required to put in heavy
cakes of Ice as is the case when the
ice-box Is In the top of the refrigera
The smooth, concrete walls are easy
to keep clean, and do not absorb odors
like wood, nor rust out like tin.
About one-half the Ice will be
saved with these refrigerators, and

The Complete Box.
water from dampness does not
form and drop on contents, as with
other kinds Safe rollers or large
casters can be molded into the floor
of the refrigerator, making the mov
ing of the box much easier
When forming the wall, brackets
should be molded in where shelving
Is wanted. The interior should be
coated with a pure cement mixture
and worked to a finished surface.
Shelving can be placed to suit the
builder, but should not cross the cold
air opening
Concrete refrigerators aro much
cheaper than the factory kind and
give better service when properly con
structed. —Exchange.
Milk Rarebit.
Grate one pound of cheese, add to
this one half cup of cream or milk.
One small teaspoonful of mustard, one
half teaspoonful of salt and a pinch
of cayenne: stir this in a chafing di«h
or double boiler until the ch< , ese melts,
add a tablespoonful of butter and two
eggs beaten light; as soon as the eggs
are well stirred In the lights should
be turned off. as the rarebit is ready
and the eggs should not be cooked for
any length of time Constant stirring
is absolutely necessary during the
whole process. Serve immediately on
crisp toast.
Oatmeal Lemonade.
Lemon oatmral drink is one of
which Invalids rarely tire Mix a ta
blespoon of fine oatmeal Into a smooth
paste with cold water; then pour over
it three pints of boiling water, stir
ring well all the time; place In a
saucepan and boil until the quantity is
reduced to two pints. Set it aside to
cool, and then pour the clear gruel
away from the sediment. Add to this
the juice of a lemon and a small quan
tity of powdered sugar. This may be
served hot or cold, and It Is good
either way.
Blisteriess Mustard Plaster.
Mix the mustard with the white of
an egg. using no water or other In
gredients. This plaster will draw,
but will not produce a blister, even on
the skin of an infant, no matter how
long It 1» allowed to remain on.
To Relieve Hoarseness.
Pour in a common glass tumbler
pure glycerine to the depth of an Inch,
add one tablespoon lemon Juice and
fire drops of camphor, take teaapoon
tul a» needed.

Young Man Evidently Was Lacking in
Hla Appreciation of the Coun
try’s Statesmen.
There Is plenty of food for cynical
thoughts in the national capital, as Is
shown by the following incident which
happened on a Washington street car:
A worldly young man. prone to crit
icise. was gazing at the advertise
ments which decorate the Interior of
the car. One advertised a new kind
of collar for men. The dome of the
capltol was represented encircled by
one of the collars, and on the sen
ate and house wings of the build
ing were placards giving prices and
sizes. The placard on the senate end
of rhe capltol read, "Quarter size.”
and that on the other end said, "Two
for a quarter.”
The worldly cynical young man
turned to his companion.
"That,” he remarked, "Just about

“My little nephew, a boy of four
years, had a breaking out on his face.
It was little red spots at first, then
he would rub and scratch and water
blisters would form, and wherever the
water would run another would come
until his face was covered with them.
Ho would cry and fret. His mother
got some medicine, but it did not do
any good. He would scream and cry
and say it hurt. We hardly knew him,
his litle face was all red spots and
blisters. So I begged him to let me
put some Cuticura Ointment on them.
The next morning I made a strong
soap suds with Cuticura Soap and
washed his face In the warm suds.
The little blisters burst by pressing
the cloth on them. After I had his
face washed, I put the Cuticura Oint
ment on and In a short time his little
face was all red and dry. I kept using
the Cuticura Soap and putting on the
Cuticura Ointment and his face got as
well and It did not leave a scar. He
was entirely cured In about one week
and a half.” (Signed) Mrs. Arthur
Haworth. Jan. 10, 1912.

throughout the world. Sample of each

A good little story, long current in
England, is just now gaining Ameri
can circulation. It has for leading
characters Rudyard Kipling and Doro

child. Kipling was visiting Hawar

voted himself to little Miss Dorothy
until her anxious mother expressed
the hope that the child had not been
wearying the great author.
"Oh. no, mamma," spoke up Doro
thy. before any one else had a chance
to say anything, "but you have no
Idea how Mr. Kipling has been weary

Carrying It Too Far.
"Scientific management, like any
other good thing, may be carried to
The speaker was R. Marriott
Thompson, the San Francisco scienti
fic management expert. He continued,
says the New York Tribune:
"We scientific managers musn’t go
as far as llussler went.
“llussler was ihe proprietor of a
tremendous factory where scientific
management had reduced the mo
tions of every hand from 80b to 17.
llussler attended a very fashionable
wedding one day, a wedding where
the ceremony was performed by a
bishop, assisted by a dean and a
canon, and in the most impressive
part of the writ llussler, overcome by
his scientific management ideas, rush

bishop and canon rudely back.

she was anxious to make as favorable

the depot, were cautioned to be on
their xery best behavior. To the
mother's surprise, they returned vig-

no money, she asked them where they
got It.
"Oh." explained the older one, "It
said on the slot machine, 'Ask the

"So you took your wile to the base
