WHERE RICH MEN ARE FEW. They Are n Scarce as Black Swans In Bulgaria. Bulgaria is the nearest approach to a peasant commonwealth which the world has known In modern times. There Is net a rulg.irlnn Slav who Is not (he owner of a plot of land upon whi'-b be lives and out of which he gets his own livelihood by his own lclx.r. Tnrge landowners are almost tin known. Tbe few men of wealth in the country are mostly of foreign birth or descent, and even they would not be counted as wealthy according to the standard of other European coun tries The small landowners, who form the THst majority of the population, are peasant bom and peasant bred. They are extremely thrifty. They are con tent with very pin In food. They wear the same sheepskin garments from year to year, only turning their coats inside out with tbe changes of the season. Whole families, even of well to do peasants, sleep In the same room upon mats stretched out on the floor. Thoy live under conditions of dirt and dis comfort which no British or German or French laborer would tolerate for a week. Yet. notwithstanding their disregard of the simplest sanitary ar rangements. they grow up singularly strong and healthy. Moreover, they are free from the Ir ritation caused among other laborers, overworked If not underpaid, by the spectacle of neighbors living in afflu ence and ease without my necessity to curtail their expenditure. Rich men are black swans In Bulgaria. I was told by a foreign banker In Sofia who had traded for many years In the country that he doubted greatly whether there were fifty men In all tbe rural districts who had net in comes of $5.00*) a year.—London Illus trated News. MOUND BUILDERS" FANS. Chicago Professor Says Their In closures Were Baseball Fields. "Baseball Is not a modern game, and all credit foi1 the Invention of It should go to the mound builders," said Pro feasor Frederick Starr of the Unlver slty of Chicago In a recent lecture on prehistoric archaeology. Professoi Starr declares that through the south em part of Ohio and Indiana he ha found geometrically perfect mound or inclosurts closely resembling tli modern baseball diamond. These an1 generally believed to have been built for purposes of protection. Professoi Starr, however, says: "They are nothing more or less than old baseball fields of the mound build ers. The game as played by these old people resembled our modern gain closely. Tbe most essential different Is that our game calls for only nint players, while In prehistoric times as many as a hundred men were neces sary.* C«re For Loves ickness. In a lecture lefore tbe Chicago Col lege of Medicine Dr. A. R. Ilagle ex plained a cure for loveslckness. lie said: "A doctor can prepare himself to treat loveslcfenws through mental in fluence just as more serious His are treated by It. One suggestion is to find a new love. This occasionally cures an old love complaint." He commended the theory of Bishop Fallows of mind and medicine work ing In harmony.

ABBOTT ON FOOTBALL. ™UM" f»"*K ON STATIONERY Thinks Courage Game Develops Worth All tbe Accidents and Deaths. The Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbott in a re cent sermon preached at New Haven to the Yale students on "What I Think About God" incidentally referred to football. "I do not know bow many accidents are due to football or how many deaths result froiu the game," said Dr. Ab bott, "but I do know you can't de velop manly courage without facing real perils, and it U worth all It costs If It is necessary In order to get this courage. "The end of llfe"'is not skyscrapers, railroads or merriment, pleasure, Joy or even happiness, but character. We are In the world to develop manly men and womanly women. "I'm glad that I am In a world where I can be lawless If I want to, because I can be virtuous. I would rather live In this world with all its Wickedness, crime and misery than if its Inhabit ants were mere puppets, even If God pulled the wires. In such a world the men would be mere puppets and not FIND OF INDIAN IDOLS. Gold Specimens From Costa Rica at Smithsonian Institution. That g'kl Idols are to be found by the score In Indian burying grounds in Costa Itlca *vas the report made to the Smithsonian Institution, In Wash ington. the other day by Emile Mosonyl, a young Austrian mining engineer. Mr. Mosonyl said he had been in the country for about seven years, and, as he bad made a point of cultivating the friendship of the Indians, he bad been able to learn much of their tribal his tory and customs. The golden Idols, he said, are buried near the remains of tbe deceased, but never In the graves. He explained the fact of the failure of local Interests to have already discovered the rich Aztec relics by tbe fact that the graves are never marked, not even by an earthen mound. The Idols, he said, are found burled In the earth, generally a short distance from the graves. Mr. Mosonyl hpd with him a few of the Idols and several examples of tbe Tndian art and said he called at the in stitution In an effort to Interest Amer ican scientists in possible explorations of the little known recesses of Central A merlca. Talking Postal Card Coming. The talking postal card is the Inven tion of a French engineer and has be come so popular In that country that the American rights have been se cured, and the device will be placed in the cities df the United States. The person wishing to send a talking post al card to a friend enters the booth and talks into a machine that records the words on the specially prepared postal card. When the recipient re ceives the card a hundred or a thou sand miles away he or perhaps she takes the card to the nearest postal booth and Inserts it in a machine which talks the message It contains. The record on the postal card is inde structible. and the exact voice of the oendfr is heard Catarrh of the Stomach a Prevalent Disease Difficult to Relieve. A O A N E I I E N E E Y Mr. S. W. .Jackson, 815 Weaver Block, Greenville, Ohio, says: "While I was superintendent of construction of J. F. Bender and Bros.' Co., of Hamilton, Ohio, I became entirely unfit for busi ness with catarrh of the stomach. "A friend called my attention to a remedy for this condition. I began to Improve at once. I was soon able to re turn to my former profession. "It would require many pages to de scribe the condition I was in and the re lief I have obtained." Here is another case. Officer George Y. Stout, 724 North Broadway, Balti more, Mil., says: "I suffered very much with catarrh of the stomach and ner vous indigestion. I lost fifty pounds in four months. "A friend called my attention to a remedy, which I used, and gradually got well. I have gained half my lost weight back again." Chronic Stomach Trouble. Mr. Robert J. Gillespie, 686 South Main St., Los Angeles, Cal., secretary of Lather's International Union, was also suffering from catarrh of the stom ach along time. He grew thinner and paler, lost all ambition and appetite. Sick at the stomach, Indigestion con tinually. A friend also called his attention to a remedy, which brought about a de cided Improvement. After continuing the use of the remedy for a month, ho considers himself permanently relieved. Now, once more. Mr. Christian Hof mau, Slatington, Pa., says he suffered for many years with catarrh of the stomach. It produced a miserable cough, day and night. He tried doctors and many remedies. At last his atten tion was called to a remedy, the same remedy that relieved the others which have been referred to above. He claims that he was entirely rid of his stomach difficulty. Pe-ru-na Brought Back Health. What was the remedy that has wrought this remarkable relief? So far, the remedy has not been mentioned. If any one doubts the correctness of these statements it is very easy to ver ify them by writing to the people whose Dames have been given, enclosing a Vtamp for reply. The remedy la within the reach of •vary one. It is simply the good, old Standard x«Uftbte KMMdf Jwewa as Parana. Fad Said to Be Taking Place of Mono crcm on Note Paper. According to a Philadelphia station er, the thumb mark Is taking the place of the monogram on note paper. "The thumb mark," says this authority, "is engraved In gold or silver and has all the value of a Bertillon mark of ldentl flcntlon. Some people prefer to have the thumb mark printed In red or blue, but the metal colors are generally ap proved. "It has several advantages besides its novelty, familiarizing c: e's friends with a personal sign manual which cannot easily be duplicated. Many of the thumb marks are also surprisingly picturesque, and it is not difficult for the writer to annex a fresh thumb mark in ink, and fhis can be compared with the engraved mark when one wants to establish tbe identity of spe cial writings." BIG SCHOOL BUILDING. Chicago to Have One Unlike Any Other In United States. School Architect Dwight II. Perkins of Chicago recently completed his first drawings of the proposed $2,000,000 commercial high school and school office building to be erected at Harri son street and Plymouth court., Chica go. Tbe structure as planned is un like any other school building in the United States, having seventeen sto ries above ground and four basements The basement stories will have the school supply department and the heating and ventilating apparatus. Above these there will be, in succes sion, a great assembly hall for teach ers' meetings and school exercises, the commercial high school and the offices of the board of education and of its various departments. A unique fea ture of the plans is a truck elevator, which will lower the largest coal wag on bodily to the last of the four base ments. Typewritten Newspaper. The strike of tbe typesetters and printers on the two Hungarian papers In Cleveland, the Hungarian News and the Hungarian Szabadsag. has ul the result of producing a novel publi cation. E. P. Kohanyl, editor of the Szabadsag, was able to produce his paper by typing his news. The type written sheets were photographed, and from the photographs printing plates were made. The engravings of the typewritten sheets were then placed together in consecutive order, and from these the papers were printed. Faults on Both 8ides. He was a mild and meek kind of husband, but at length his patience and good nature gave out, and he went to his lawyer to get him to draw up a deed of separation from his exasper ating better half. "Ah, well," said the lawyer thought fully. "perhaps thera^ may be faults ot both sides." "You're right!" shouted the angry client. "She has a hump on her back and a wart on her nose."—New York Times. If the truth were known, the proba bilities are that Peruna has relieved as many cases of catarrh of the stomach as any other popular remedy in exis tence. We have a great many unsolic ited testimonials from all parts of tbe United States, declaring in strong and enthusiastic terms that Peruna has en tirely relieved them of catarrh of the stomach, that they were wretched ami miserable beyond words, but Peruna has restored them to health, vigor and happiness. These are the facts. Now, if you have stomach difficulty, it is up to you to act upon them or ignore them, as you please. Symptoms of Stomach CataiTh. "The affection may result from errors in diet, or the use of alcohol. The ex cessivo use of tobacco, especially when the juice or the leaves are swallowed, is likely to cause it. "Highly seasoned or coarse, irritating foods, sometimes induce the disease. "As chronic gastritis (catarrh of the stomach) is essentially a secondary affection, one of the primary causes is an unhealthy state of the mouth, nose or throat, such as bad teeth or catarrh of the nose (ozena). "Tho patients are usually poorly nourished, pale, sallow, thin, fatiguo easily induced, muscles llabby. Loss of appetite or capricious appetite. "The tongue is usually coated brown ish gray. Cankered mouth is a com mon occurrence. •'Pain is not common. When present it is usually dull, and is aggravated by food, especially when this is of an irri tating character. "Vomiting may occur in the morning. Also after meals. Sickness to the stom ach frequent and persistent. "Food produces dull headache, and feeling of general nervous distress. Constipation usually quite marked." These symptoms, given by Oould and Pyle, coincide exactly with the frequent descriptions Dr. Hartman is receiving from patients ail over the United States. If you nave any of these Bymptoms get a bottle of Peruna. Take a do*e be fore each meal.
