Dayton, O., like many other sections of tha country, can now claim a lost river. Dayton didn't exactly lose tho creek Itself, tho creek did that, but, nevertheless, the creek Is gone, or rather part of It Is. The stream Is Poplar creek. It Is sup- posod to empty Into tho Miami river Just below tho Columbus, Hamilton & Day ton bridge, but slnco the flood the creek has stopped at tho bridge". Vhen tho water from many sections of the sur rounding territory was pouring Into tho Miami river and eventually flooding Day ton, Poplar creek was taking care thut In tho future It would not empty Its wateri Into tho Miami again. Swirling under the bridge In great tor rents, creating a suction that. It was noxt to impossible for floating ob jects to pa.ii through, tho water began to dig Into the bed of tho creek. Soil. gravol and rock wero hurled from their resting places In the bed of tho stream, and ovcntunlly tho water struck a spot Which, Instead of giving way to tho water, began to draw tho water 'into itself This discovery, was mate by . J. K. Barpes, whoso, .clalrjithat th'e' subter ranean channels would carry off 'enough water to avert another flood" proved by tho fact that this strcani, which at times becomes almost -Impassable, can lose Itself pn entering the' subterranean channel which It inado for Itself during tho flood.' 'The . ordinary wldth ot the creek Is about fifteen feet, -and It runs In depth anywhere from a few Inches to several feel. Thero Is a. space 'of about 200 foot be tween tho bridgn nnd tho river through which tho creek formerly flowed, but not u drop of water has advanced any further than the brldgo slnco tho flood. Tho suction al tho spot whero the creok disappears Is so great that articles thrown into tho water aro drawn to the bottom Immediately. Barnes estimates that tho stream carries about 2,000 gat Ions of water a minute Dayton Dis patch. BACK TO THE COTTON BALES Ancient Plan of Jnukaon'a tint tie of Chnlmcttr Supports Dlsputeil 4 Claim. Interest In tho slumbering cotton-bale theory of tho battle of Now Orleans was aroused Saturday by the finding of a water-color picture map pf tho original battlu plan In an abandoned trunk tn the cellar of the St. Charles hotel. Little Is known about tho drawing or the other contents of the trunk which has remained unnoticed for years In a dark corner. Five veterans nf the battle hnve added their signatures to the remarkable map to attest tho fact that it ts a true represen tation of the battle plan as intde under the direction of Andrew Jackson by his military cnglnoor, H. Laclotte. It shows a line ot cotton bales which a marginal note says was l.Oto feet long with a pro longment extending COO feet Into the woods. Somo historians deny tho story about the use of cotton bales. The five veterans who say they fought behind cotton bales were Joseph St. Cyr, Jean Lamothe. P, M. 'Lapice, Charles Raymond and Jean Gcrvals. Pen pictures of these men appear In tho footnotes. The finding of the picture Is timely as It will be of lorvlco for the staging of the battle, which Is to be one of tho leading features of the Exposition of Big Ideas -New Orleans Item.

How many bald barbers, offering halrgrowers to cus tomem, aro asked why they didn't use the tonle themselves!" Laughing, the actor continued: "I know a bald bat bur In Ntw York, though, who haa a ready, It not alto gather convincing, answer for questions uf that sort.

STAND STRAIGHT TO THE JOB Best Way to Get Uif Vul llorie lioirer Out of Yonr Human Machine. The way tho human body Is used Is of th utmost Importance if the Person Is to have ,tho best of health of which tho person Is capable. With a person It Is much the tamo as with tho automobile. One represents a flfty-horsepowor engine, another a forty, another a thirty, still another a twenty, nnd If the body Is used rightly th!s full amount of enotgy can ba developed without harm. If the body is used wrongly, as Is true with the ma chine. It l)i uy bo ruined In developing half tho amount Of tho designed horse power. When rightly used, tho parts aro all In balance; there ,1s no tmduo strain to any pnrt, tho chest Is carried high, so that the breathing Is easy, and thero Is the full amount ot "wind power." Tho abdominal organs aro properly supported and work with tho least difficulty, tho digestion and nutrition aro good. If .the body Is drooped or buckles In. tho middle, tho whole body suffers, and In mony times disease conditions start In this way. In-such drooped position the chest Is flattened, so that the lungs cannot work rightly nnd bocom,e weak, the .ab domen in telescoped nnd tho stomach, bowels and other . organs are crowded together and work badly, so that indiges tion nnd constipation rcsu'.t. Health, or tho best posslblo efficiency, the full horsepower of the person, cannot result under such conditions any more than an engine can develop.

Tho position most favorable for health and In which tho load or bunion of life can be carried most easily Is With tho body, both when sitting, and when standing, ns It would bt If a person wore trylnp to sit or stand ns tall as possible. This gives the high chest, the flat ah. domcn, the erect head, square shoulders, straight knees nnd tho springs of the whole body nro set In the best' Way. This Is the position recognized by tire. amietic trainers, by tho singing teachers nnd by all those who arc. expected to train Individuals for great effort.

TRICKS OF BRITISH BURGLARS Man?- liiKoilloua Scheme Used Itiilitirr to Prevent Pursuit nnd Capture. by Tho wine burglar considers not only how he may enter, but also how he may escape. He has the whole tiling plan ned out before embarking on his venture, and nothing is left to chance. When he. 1b at work In a room he usu ally locks tho door on tho Inside, or If there Is no lock ho simply props a chair with its back hard under the door han dle, thus making It quite Imposslbto for uny ono to come In upon hltn unexpect edly. Sometimes his ordinary precautions fall and he la driven to tako otlicts on tho spur of the moment. Thero are often of the mojt extraordinary character, and may end In doing serious damage to Ufa and property. An Instance In point occurred not long ago at Hop wood, near Beddttch. A tradesman's wife wait alone In the house at night when she was aroused by a creaking sound. Opening .her eyes, she saw a rough-looking man In tho room. Evidently he knew his way about, for h tip-toed to a chest of drawers and took out a small cash box which held a sum Opens Up Nostrils, Ends Colds Instantly Relieves Swollen, In flamed Nose, Head, Throat You Breathe Freely Dull Headache Goes Nasty Discharge Stop.

By morning! the ratarrh, t olil-ln-htud or catarrhal sore l.n.at will brs gone Lud urh mhery nuw' fjt t.ir itnall about about With great presence of mind the lady refrained from screaming. She waited until th man was out of the room, then sprang up and hastily put on a dressing gown. Then sho run out, hut on gaining the top of tho stairs was met by a blaze of flame. The thief, who had eldently heard her get out of bed, hnd snatehed up n pile of newspaper In the patsagc below, nnd, heaping them on tho stairs, eet fire to them. It Mas Impossible to pass the barrier of fire, and though fortunately help came in time to put tho flames out tho bur glar Rot clean away. Ui?en more cunning was the ruse of a thlof who' raided a hbuie on Woburn street. W. C. The tenant, hearing a nolso outsldo his bedroom door, Jumped up and titseoferod that his watch and chain Were missing. Without waltln lo put on slippers he bolted 'downstairs and wits Just In time- to too tho thief ruth out of tho front door. Ho gave, chase. The thief glanced around, saw that his pursuer, was barefooted and, taking a bottle from his pocket, flung It forcibly down upon tho pavement tn front of the other. Tho householder naturally pulled up short Jdst In time to savo hla feotwhllo tho burglar, turning sharply down a. side alloy, disappeared from view. Tho latter case calls to mind one which happened tn Davenport, or rather In Stoke, which Is the residential suburb ot that town. A naval officer was aroused nt ubout 3 a. m. on a winter morning by hearing a slight clatter downstairs. He picked up a sword and went down, and located tho sound as having come from the dining room. Thero was a good deal of sliver there, and he at once made up his mind that burglars were arter It. Ho tried the door, but found It fastened from the tnslde, so went out of the front door and rushed around to tho window. But tho thloves had foreseen this ma neuver. As he reached It ono of them flung a. 'handful of pPPr Into his face, and as he reeled back, choked and halt blinded, they both Jumped out and took to their heels. One of tho smartest tricks ever played by a burglar was In house In tha suburbs of Worcester. Tho man broke in at night, and, after packing up somo sti ver below, ventured upstairs to see what he could find. The master of the house spotted htm and called his son. They located Mr. Sykes In a first 'floor front room. His shadow was plainly vis ible on the blind, outlined apparently by n candle or lantern. Tho father kept watch outside In tho front, while the sou went for a policeman. When he returned with tho officer the shadow was still plainly visible. But when they went up and entered tho room, behold thero was nothing but an effigy mado with pillows and n suit of clothes. Tho Intruder, seelnc that he had been discovered, had rapidly constructed this to personate himself, nnd had then oloarcd off' by means of a rope hanging from a buck bedroom window. Pearson's Weekly.
