HAD ITS ORIGIN IN YEN1CE

Nam "Gazette" May Be Traced From j
What Might Be Called the
First Newspaper.
Not Rome, but Venice, holds first
place In Journalism history. From
the latter city we get most of the
nomenclature of the modern newspa newspaper,

news was publicly posted as In Rome,
but to read It cost. It la said, a small
coin, a gazetta. Not only In Latin
countries, but even In America, Ga Gazette
zette Gazette has been a favorite name for
newspaper. In the case of the 18
original colonies, nine times oat of
ten the first newspaper in any one of
them was a Gazette. Often the price
paid for a newspaper haa furnished
the name. Examples may be found
In the Cent of Philadelphia possibly
the first penny paper In America and
the Picayune of New Orleans. Skeat
In his "Etymological Dictionary of the
English Language gives under the
word "Gazette, "an abstract of news
issued at Venice; the original sense
is either (1) a magpie, from Italian
"gazette. whence it may have meant
tittle-tattle; or (2) a very small coin
perhaps paid for the privilege of read reading
ing reading the news, from Italian "gazetta, a
coin less than a Earthing. The read reader
er reader may choose. Since the distin distinguished
guished distinguished professor of Anglo-Saxon at
the University of Cambridge was not
quite sure about the derivation and
offered a choice te his readers. It is
barely possible that the' two txsea of
the Italian "gazetta" gave the Latin
news sheets their name.

GOING BACK TO NATURE.
BT DR. W. LUCAS.
People get sick because they go away
from Nature, and the only way to get
well is to go back. Something grows out
of the ground in the form of vegetation
to cure almost every ill. Some of these
vegetable growths are understood by
man, and eome are not. Animals, it
would seem, know what to do when
they are eick better than men and
women. Observers have noted that a
eick horse, dog or cat will stop eating
food and seek out some vegetable
growth in the field or yard, which, when
found and eaten, often restores appetite
and health. Haven't you seen these
animals do this very thing yourself?
Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., long
since found the herbs and roots pro provided
vided provided by Nature to overcome constipa constipation,
tion, constipation, and he had these vegetables col collected
lected collected and made up of May apple, leaves
of Aloe, root of Jalap, into little white
sugar-coated pills, that he called Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets. You must
understand that when your intestines
are stopped up, poisons and decayed
matter are imprisorfed in your system,
and these are carried by the blood
throughout your body. Thus does
your head ache, you get dizzy, you
can't sleep, your skin may break out,
your appetite declines, you get tired
and despondent. As a matter of fact,
you may get sick all over. Don't you
see bow useless all this suffering is ?
All that is often needed is a few of
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets, which he
has placed in all drug stores for your
convenience and health. Try them by
all means. They are probably the verj
thing you need right now.

The train rolled slowly out of the

station, leaving a girl standing on the
platform. Nellie Windsor was fifteen
years old. Her mother and father were
dead and she had no one but Unole Jo
and Aunt Betty. Uncle Jo had written
her to come and live with Mm end
here she was. It was fully ten minutes
before Uncle Jo came, and when he
did he gave her a hearty klse and lift lifted
ed lifted her Into the buggy and oft they
went. Arriving at the farm, he found
Aunt Betty waiting on the porch for
her, and such a dear old lady she was.
It was then 3:30 o'clock,' and the rest
of the afternoon was spent In unpack unpacking
ing unpacking her clothes and learning the rounds
of the house. After supper she went
directly to bed, because she was tired
from her long Journey.
The next afternoon she wandered
around, picking flowers, chasing but butterflies,
terflies, butterflies, and, gathering an apron full
of apples, she went down to the little
brook. It was nice and coel and she
was enjoying herself when MHello,"
said a voice. She looked up, put saw no
one.
"I say, hullo," again came the voice;
this time It seemed to come from the
tree that was across the brook.
- "Hullo, yourself' replied Nellie.
u Whore are you?"
"Up here In the tree," said the voice.
"Come down," she said.
"Nope," answered the "voice. No
amount of teasing would make the
voice come down. It was getting late,
so Nellie said: "If I come here tomor tomorrow
row tomorrow will you let me see who you are?"

"Maybe," replied the voice. So Nellie
scampered up the hill and home. But
she was not to see the owner of the
voice tomorrow, for when 'she got up

the next morning, It was raining.

Uncle Jo came in at dinner time
with an Invitation for Nellie to spend
the afternoon with the Browns, who

lived across the field. Slowly she went

upstairs to dress, sorry because she

could not go down to the' brook, but

maybe it would be there some othe

time; so with this happy thought In

mind she was soon ready, and Uncle
Jo took her over to the Browns. She

was rather shy, being among strangtrs.

but Mrs. Brown soon put her at ease.

Molly Brown was Nellie's age, and

they took to each other right away.
While they were sitting, talking about
nothing In particular, the doorbell

rang and Molly's mother went and ad

mltted five young people who had come
to spend the afternoon. Soon a-boy

about a year older than herself came

In and was Introduced as Billy Brown,

What a good time she had, and what
nice girls and boys they were! But
Billy where had she heard that voice T
The afternoon passed all too quickly,
and when the guests rose to go, Mrs.
Brown shook hands with them all, and

sa did Molly and Billy. When Nellie

arrived home she could not help think

lng what a nice boy Billy was, and

she blushed when she thought how he
had given her hand a tiny, unneces

sary squeexe.

The days that followed were the

happiest ones she had ever had. Long

rambles with Molly and the Tucker

twins, plenica, and often she would
go for long walks with Billy. She

liked Billy very much and Billy liked-

Nellle. But she did not 'forget the
voice. Every day she would go down
to the brook and talk and talk with It.

She would tell It of the nice times she

was having, and went so far as to tell
It of Billy. Thus two weeks passed

on and Nellie thought she was never

going to see the voice, when one day

the voice told her that she would see

It tomorrow, sure. To be sure, Nellie
was there at the appointed time, and
the voice said: "If I come down, will

you promise to give me one thing?"

Wondering what it could be, but ca

rious to see the voice, as she had call

ed It, she readily said, "Yes." It slid
down the tree and there stood Billy I

"Ton you V she gasped. Billy

tmilftd and said. "Tour d remise." She

was so surprised she did not know

what to say. At length she said, "What

do you want?"
"A kiss." he replied.

It is generally recognized by gov
eminent officials, especially those of
the army, that one of the most Im Important

paredness preparedness that can possibly be under undertaken
taken undertaken In this country Is that which Is
going on under the impetus of the
good roads movement. The federal
aid road act which was signed by
Fresldent Wilson last summer will
probably play an Important part In
this same Interest. An appropriation
of $75,000,000 has been provided for
In this act for use In constructing
rural post-roads, while the various
states are to co-operate In providing
a like fund.
It Is planned thus for an expendi expenditure

faced surfaced and well drained may be, it is
pointed out, of Immense value from a
military point of view. In the location
of roads, particularly along the shore,
special, attention to military require requirements
ments requirements in the laying out and planning
of a highway may prove of inestimable
value at some time in the future when
that highway becomes a military road.
From an economic standpoint it is
estimated that it costs 23 cents to haul
a ton a mile on the average country
road under present conditions, while
under proper conditions the cost would
be but IS cents. While these figures
measure a direct cost, there is an
even greater indirect cost to consider
with bad roads when the farmer must
pian his operations according to the

It Is a matter of special Interest

By CAPT. ROBERT J. CASEY,
In the Chicago Journal.
Gosseldange, Luxemburg. General
Bell is president of Graustark now.
Ills division to which we have final finally
ly finally become attached is living amid a
kaleidoscope of international spies,
mysterious men with black beards,
revolutionists, conspirators, counter counter-conspirators
conspirators counter-conspirators and beautiful princesses.
All day long the' white highways are
filled with dashing couriers. All night
long vigilance committees He awake
trying to figure out what new plan of
government to start off the next day
with. It is certainly a strange situation
for a poor, guileless lot of Infantry
and artillery.
It isn't officially set down In the rec records
ords records that the general is the last word
hereabouts, but no one even the most
ardent revolutionary leader falls to
admit that his is the only constituted
authority. So long as he continues to
sit in state at die klrche the plotters
don't get much of h chance to raise a
disturbance.
The Storm Breaks.

We were Just turning across the

realized that the beautiful Marie Ade Adelaide,
laide, Adelaide, grand duchess of Luxemburg and
royal princess by her own right, had
just passed. Not knowing anything
about local politics we couldn't guess
that something had gone wrong.
That night, however, a bulletin was
tacked to the door of the schoolhouse
annex now doing service as a battery
kitchen stating In French and Ger German

In favor of her sister, Charlotte, and
that if the populace would try to keep
calm, the government would try to con continue

The minister of war naturally fig figured

princess undertook moral suasion. She
drove out to the border and lay down
across the road and uttered the sen sentence

But, alas for the proper climax of
the story, the beautiful Adelaide had

A couple of brawny hussars picked
the princess up, deposited her along alongside

generals dined at the princess palace
In Colmar-Verg.
There Is no way of determining what
was the political persuasion of the

followed. Luxemburg seems to have
