Have you ever noticed that every
chambermaid who has been taking
v'.ire of the hay and feathers for a
number of years is usually devoid of a
few teeth of the upper "case?" Vet-
eran cha(bobermaids can seldom show
a full set of upper teeth. The absence
of the ivories Is explained as follows
by a downtown dentist: "The teeth of
the maids which I replace with arti-
ficial ones are pillowcase teeth. They
are constantly used in putting on pil-
iowcase.s and are not strong enough to
stand the strain. Their work is a con-
stant wear and tear on the teeth."-

FOR BETTER ROADS.
\Whatever else theo nezt legislature
does it should amend the present
road law by repealing it entirely and
enacting a new one that would be
more in keeping with m odern ideas
and modern methods. T'ihe present
otle is such hodge-podge patchwork
ot amendment and contradictions
that those who work the raada at all
do so from i sense of public duty.
Any sort of a lawyer at all can get
almost a'lyoue off from a charge as
road defaulter. Another thing that
should be kept in mind is a provision
that will require the floating popula-
tion that drifts from one tuipentine
still to another to do the share of this
work that now properly belongs to
them. As it is they pay nio taxes and
fully two-thirds of the expenditures
from the fine and forfeiture, fund is
for their prosecution.--DeFuniak
A FORECAST OF
THE SOUTH'S ADVANCE.
During 1906 tho wealth of the
South increased $7,300. 000 for every
day of the year, Sundays included, or
a total of $2,690,000,000. The act-
ual increase in assessed value was
$1,076,479,788, and thin was on the
average 40 per cent. of the true val-
tie. The amazing magnitude of this
gain of $7,300.000 a day is strikingly
sbown by the statement of the London
Express. which, bemoaning the inabil-
ity of Great Britain to keep pace with
state will greatly facilitate the pro-
gress of mak'cing Firidla, in spirit a-.

The Study of Medlclee.
The study of medicine Is the study
of man and of his relations to his en-
vironment. It is the broadest and.
most useful of all the professions. A
skillful physician can find opportunity
for the employment of his highest skill
In a hovel as well as In a palace. He
Is alike welcomed by the king and by
the peasant. The exactions of the phy-
ilclan's calling are mdre severe than
those of any other profession. He
Anust be content to hold all his personal
plans for pleasure, profit or recreation
subject to the exigencies of many oth-
er lives as well as of his own, so that
his lifo must be less regular than that
of other men. He belongs to the social
fire department. He must often Im-
peril his health, even his life, to save
the health and lives of others. He
must be content with a short life. But
all these disadvantages are induce-
ments to the man who desires to live
up to the highest and noblest ideals.

way thru the dense ti-ti, about one-
fourth of a *mile from the bay, and in
the very thickest part, came upon a
sheet iron box, which doubtless has a
history. It was evidently a cash box
and had in its time been a neat one,
o1 9x6x5 inches dimensions, with a
mo.'eable tray which is partitioned off
into three compartments, and the box
proper into three other sections, with
lids to one each in tray and body; riv-
eted to the inside of the cover with cop-
per rivuts is a proportionately square
plate of galvanized iron. It must have
been fastened with a padlock, drop hasp
and staple, but these have been broken
off and are cone. The box never got
there without hands and there can be
no other conclusion than that it was
stolen from some one and taken to the
fastness of the ti-to, broken open and
rifled. While the box is rusted thru in
some places, it cannot have lain in that
exposedsituation for more than fopr or
five-years, and Mr. Gay,*who has sent
it to the Buoy office, thinks., perhaps
this item may catch the ey of the owner
and furnish ,clue to the loss. The box
may or may not. have c<,niained viluo-

open. The box is at the Buoy office

Manghapir, about nine miles from Ka-

age for pious Hindoos, but it Is chiefly
famous for the value of Its waters in
the cure of the dread scourge of lep-
rosy. The waters are hot, and more
than 60 per cent of the sufferers who
bathe there annually, it is said, are
cured. The crocodiles are rather note-

water, apparently apfferlng no incon-

When Buttons Were Big.
Bachaumont writes in his "Secret
Memoirs." Nov. 18. 178f: "The mania
for buttons is today extremely ridlcu-
lous. They are not only of enormous
size, some of them as big as six pound
crowns, but miniatures and pictures
are made upon them, and this orna-
mentation is extremely costly; Some
of them represent the medals of the
twelve Caesars, others. antique statues
and still others the Metamorphoses of
Isabey, In his biographical notes,
says that when he came to Paris be
worked for a living by making copies
of Vanloos and Bouchers on the elds of
snuffboxes and that for these medal-
lions he was paid from 6 to 8 francs
each. "As It was still the fashion," he
said, "to wear buttons as big as a five
franc piece, upon which Cupids, flow-
ers and landscapes were cut in cameo,
I went into that business. I got 12
sons for each."-Paris Figaro.

Monster SpiUer Crabs.
"I have collected specimens of crabs
In all parts of the world," said a nat-
uralist. "but I shall never forget the
pleasure I experienced In securing a
monstrous specimen of the Japanese
spider crab, the largest ever found.
The combined length of the feeding
arms of this monster was more than
twelve feet, while the body portion
was about twenty inches across. When
alive, It weighed about seventy-five
pounds. One of the' oddest things
about these creatures is their ability
to assume a disguise. This feat they
are able to perform owing to the flexi-
bility of -their pinchers and to the
hooked hairs and spines with which
their numerous arms are studded. By
means of their pinchers they tear off
small fragments of sponges and sea-
weeds. After first putting these to
their months, which contain a glutinous
saliva, they place them on the sur-
face of their limbs and bodies by
sticking them fast with a rubbing
movement By this method the crab
succeeds In completely changing Its
appearance and rendering itself Indis-
tinguishable from the materials com-
mon to the bottom of the sea. While
crawling along it seems as though a
portion of the ocean bed was In mo-
tion, so close is the resemblance."
Forests of Stone.
Stone forests are found In various
parts of the world. In many cases
they are hardened by some peculiarity
of the atmosphere and are found stand-
ing just as they were when clothed
with green foliage thousands of years
ago. The Little Colorado river, in Ari-
zona, has long been famous as a local-
ity for such finds. At one place more
than 1,500 cords of solid stone, tree
trunks, sections, limbs and logs, were
found by the government surveyors.
Most of them were silicifled, many
seven to ten feet in diameter and from
twenty to eighty feet in height. Geol-
ogists say that the petrified trees of
the Little Colorado were once covered
with marl over 1,000 feet in depth.

Never resign yourself to suffer pain, Women's
pains are curable. They are the sign of dangerous
conditions of the female organs, which should be
promptly attended to or dangerous results will follow.
r IT COMES TO WOMAN'S RELIEF
whenever she suffers from any of woman's biting and weakening pains.
It not only compels the pains to stop, but it follows up and drives out
the cause of the pains, which prevents them from coming back.
It makes you well. Try it.

I have just heard a good mot-it Is

American historian, who is now Un1t-

our ambassador there, thought, I sup-
pose, that the Yankee was a fair and
would be an easy butt for the shafts
of his peculiarly refined wit, so at-
tacks him before a hundred listeners
on some public occasion with "In God's

Shoplifters In Dookatores.
"Ours is one business in which there
are no women shoplifters," said a
bookseller yesterday. "We are trou-
bled with shoplifters, but they are all
men. Women don't seem to have any
time for, book stealing. It's remark-
able how many thefts we detect in the
course of a week. Visitors who look
,)rosperous enough to buy whole li-
braries are often caught abstracting
a twenty-five cent book. I figure that
this Is due to the great temptation.
You see. In bookstores callers are given
the run of the place and are at liberty
to examine the stock at their leisure.
A man picks up some little volume he
may want, and, seeing no one at hand,
the temptation to get something for
nothing is too much for him. He slips
the coveted article Into his pocket, but
we have wary salesmen, and most such
offenders are tripped up. Then they
have to pay for the purloined volumes
and are warned that more serious con-
sequences will follow any repetition of
the shop!lfting."-Philadelphia Record.
"What!" said the judge. "You ex-
pect me to send your husband to prison

he threw hit me."

How Long the Bills Last.
A dollar bill has an average life of
about fifteen months. Two dollar bills,
not being quite so actively used, last
on the average more than sixteen
months. A five dollar bill lives on an

out and the government is called upon
to replace It Ten dollar bills last about
three years and twenty dollar bills

Selence and Maanfaeture.
In the Zeiss glass works at Jena four-
teen doctors of science are employed,
and these include mathematicians as
well as physicists. The great German
aniline color works employ more "sci-
entific" than "technical" chemists. At
one of them, for instance, fifty-five sci-
entific and thirty-one technical chem-
ists are engaged, at a second 145 scien-
tific chemists and 175 technologists, at
a third 148 scientific chemists for sev-
enty-five technielsts. The research lab-
oratories of thee works are lavishly
equipped. One of them possesses a li-
brary of 14,000 volumes. A second
spends 150,000 francs a year on glass-
ware. These things are po doubt ex-
pensive, but these great factories still
manage to pay a dividend of from 20
to 80 per cent. Every newly discovered
substance which is usable is patented,
and In this way Germany has managed
to establish a monopoly. The house of
Baeyer possesses a thousand patents at
home and 1,200 in foreign countries.-

The Bed And the Candidates.
Judge Harlan and James B. McCrea-
ry once canvassed Kentucky together
as the Republican and Democratic can-
didates for governor. They traveled
abovet the state on a joint debating trip
and in many small mountain places
had to sleep in the same bed. They
were warm personal friends and so
did not object to this intimacy. One
nighi Mr. Harlan got into bed first.
Senator McCreary was not far behind,
and just as he entered the bed Judge
Harlan raised his bulky form and said
In his steutorian voice, "McCreary,
there is one thing certain-the next
governor of Kentucky Is in this bed."
As he spoke the bed slats broke, and
Judge iHarlan rolled to the floor. Sena-
tor McCreary caught and held himself
In bed, and, as Judge Harlan reached
the floor, said: "John, you are right.
The next governor of Kentucky ia still
In this bed."
The World as It Is.
A world without mistakes and with-
out suffering would be a world without
real men and women, without litera-
ture, without music, without painting
or sculpture and without love, and
even without history, for history is a
record of struggles toward better and
higher things. Without obstacles to
overcome and erroW to correct men
and women would lapse to a level with
beasts in mentality. Intellectual and
spiritual development would cease and
souls not refined by the fire of ordeals
would die of something akin to fatty
degeneration. The races would perish
of ennui or inanity. After all, it's a
pretty fair sort of world as it stands
