News of the Week


An Opinion of San Mateo.
The New Packer Man who was a
recent visitor here has the following
to say about San Mateo, all of which
we would especially call to the notice
of Item readers int the north who
have any notion of locating in Flor-
ida:
San Mateo, Fla.-San Mateo in at
once one of the most Interesting and
one of the most beautiful spots inl
Florida. Not most Interesting alone
because it is most beautiful but in-
teresting from various standpoints.
San Mateo has the people, educated
and refiled. It has the elinate be-
cause the beautiful St. Johns river"
protects it from the cold winds from
the North and its timber growth is
still large enough to protect it from
the West.
San Mateo has the orange groves
because people here make a study of
oranges and oe not follow in the same
old rut of years gone by. San Mateo
is modern and yet in a way ancient
because she adopts the old nature
waynof growing the fruit that China
produced 4,000 years ago. As a re-
sult San Mateo is one of the most
up to-date orange and grapefruit
producing sections in beautiful Flor-
ida. San Mateo shipped grapefruit
of the fluest quality, up to June 24,
which obtained the highest market
price, proving quality.
The principal growers here are:
The San Mateo Fruit Co., of which
John A. Crosby Is president and
general manager. This company
has acres of fancy fruit of tlie more
tender varieties under cover while
there are large groves out in the open.
Mr. Crosby is also editor of the San
Mateo Item, one of the leading week-
ly -newspapers in this section.
Miss L. MeShane has one oflthe
moil beautiful home here, with a
front of torest fruit and decorative
trees and has a fine 10 acre orange
grove, grows tomatoes, beans and
other vegetables on one of the finest
hammock farms4.a Florida.
H. M. Flagler of Standard Oil Co.,
and Florida Bast Coast fame has a
fine orange grove here under tihe
management of S. W. Rowley, the
famous San ivateo cigar manufac-
turer. 8. W. Rowley also bas a fine
orange grove of his own here in
beautiful Ban Mateo.
J. D. Gray has fine 6 acre home
orange grove here and reads The
Packer.
A. Bailey & Son hare a leader here
n bthe orange and grapefru Hliue, 10
as"e, and one of the fnes home* il
Florida. A. Bailey 6 Son were ship-
plng grapelrolt up So June 10th fresh

patred to re-block. bleach, clean, and

planlts iIn season.
II. S. Owenas has an orange grove
andt( grown vegetables in season and

0. W. Lyle Ii one of The Packer's
most valued renters, but, as usual at
this season, is North, hetice tithe
writer did not have the pleasure of
mieetlig lilin or enjoying the AROt1'-
MENTATIV!/E CONTEST iunually
in vogue. Mr. Lyle has one of the
banner orange groves in Florida and
is one of the late grapefruit shippers
of perfection fruit.
There are others here but The
Packer man had not time enough to
find whether they were north or here
in San Mateo.

Will Hilburn Run?
The Jacksonville Metropolis says:
"A. H. Odom, a talented young law-
yer of Palatka, and a law partner of
Hon. S. J. Hilburn, spent yesterday
In this city on business. Mr. Odoin
gives his attention to his profession,
and takes but little interest int poll-
tich. He was asked, however, if Mr.
Hillburn had decided to make the
race for Congress against Frank
Clark, and he said: "Mr. Hilburn
has not yet decided make the con-
test, and if he does the people will at
once be informed. Htis mail is
heavy, and contains letters from all
over the district, urging him to go
into the fight. He is an exceedingly
strong mant, and has a record, both
public and private that cannot he
assailed."

A Big Price for Celery Land.
D)ve Tyner is now the proud po.-
sessor of one of thle finest celery
farms in the county, having recently
purchased about two acres of the
richest soil in this county, at a coni-
sideration of $4,6(00, from I). E. Ful-
ton. Mr. Fulton is not thinking of
retiring from the cultivation of
celery, but will devote more of his
time to has valuable home place,
which is one of the most lucrative
spots in any part of this county. Mr.
Fulton only recently refused a cash
offer of $4,000 for the farm sold Mr.
Tyner. Gary can well boast of being
the greatest celery-raising district int
this section, and numerous calls are
made in regard to purchasing farms.

Id Notes


SOR HAND TUCKS.
As expert needlewoman gives a
good suggestion for those who 'wish
to keep hand-sewn tuoks perfectly
straight. She says that she always
l. ooens one thread and draws it
S lightly, not enough to pull It from
'. the fabric, but Just enough to show
, the line plainly. Along this line she
make a crease, and the tuck Is abso-
lutely straight.-Brooklyn Eagle.
PRAISING LINEN FROCKS.
When you wish to press your dark
linen frock this summer do not trust
that a white ironing boarl will leave
no mark. You may easily cover the
board for a moment with some dark
material-an old skirt or a bit of
lining-and when the frock is
pressed this may be removed and kept
till the next time.
You know the appearance of a dark
gown with splotches of white lint
upon It. It is to avoid just these that
the dark cover should be used. Also,
it Is just as necessary to moisten the
dark linen with a patch of its own
material instead of white goods.-'
Boston Post.
THE ELECTRIC TABL ECJLOTH.
One of the fads of the fashionable
London dinner table at present is an
electric tablecloth, which niay be
shaded from the snowy white of the
o0nvelals damask tb a glistening
silver. t Is a favorite trick of the
London hostess to surprise her guests
with the tablecloth gradually taking
on color, or, as it were, growing In
brilliance until it seems to be aflame.
11o gain this effect only a few heavily
saaded candles are onf the table. The
hostess operates a switch, and grad.
Mally light ascends from the 'whole
spread of tablecloth. It even shows
through dainty china, and the effect
is said to be almost as uncanny as It
Is pretty and effective. The light is
spread by a multiplicity of wires lit-
erally sewed in a specially prepared
material, which lies close on the table
and then Is covered by the regulation
tablecloth. The Invention is a secret,
and so far as the luminous cloths
have bees in the exclusive possession
of a few wealthy women. One of
these is Mrs. Potter Palmer, who is
always one of the first to turn new
and clever Inventions to her social
advantage.-New York Press.
A HOMi-MADE REFRIGERATOR.
As very little ice was put up last
wInter, the question how to keep but-
ter, milk and other perishable articles
for the table is of vital importance.
and any new method or way of keep-
lag things of this kind cool, receives
ready attention by all housekeepers.

Of the top and sides, and at it over

the seat There should be enough
space between the boxes so the ltd
of the burled box can be swung up

lay on the top and up against the

eratpr Is ready for use.
If you wish you can make a door for
the large box which will make a
double protection.-S. I. Parker in the
Indiana Farmer.
RECrIPES.
Blaked Fricassed Chicken.-Take a
spring chicken, of 21/ or more
pounds, cut In pieces, roll in flour as
for frying. Put In a bake pan, add
butter, pepper and salt; add water to
about half cover: cover, bake slowly:
when brown turn the pieces over. If
the water Is out add a little more.
When done take off the chicken, mix
a large tablespoonful' of flour Into
Iweet milk and make a gravy. This
Is a change from fried chicken and Is
said to be more digestible.
Chicken Tomato Bouillion.- quart
of clear chicken stock, 1 can of toma.
toes, I slice of onion. C cloves, 2 small
red peppers, 2 sta;(s of celery, 1 bay
leaf, pinch of soda, salt and pepper
to taste. Way of preparing: Place
the tomato In a saucepan and add the
onion, cloves, peppers. celery and bay
leaf. Cook 25 minutes and strain.
Add enough boiling water If neces-
sary to make 1 pint. Add this to the
chicken stock and bring to the boll-
Ing point. Serve in hot cups and salt
to taste. Top with whipped cream.
Doughnuts.-I cup of sugar, 1 cup
of sweet milk, 2 tabllespoons, melted
lard, 2 eggs beaten together, heap-
ing teaspoons baking powder, nut-
meg, flour -to make a stiff loaf. Roll
thin, cut and fry in deep, hot lard.
Soft Ginger Bread.-1 cup sugar, %
cup butter, 1 cup Orleans molasses,
1 cup of sour milk, 2 eggs, 4 cups of
flour, 1 teaspoonful soda, 1 teaspoon-
ful ginger, 1 teasponful cinnamon, I
teaspoonful allspice.
Cherry Pudding.-1 cupful of
sugar, 1 cupful of sweet milk, piece of
butter size of an egg, 2 teaspoonfuls of
baking powder, flour enough to make
a real stiff batter (little stiffer than
cake). Put in pudding pan or bread
pan and mix the following: Dressing
-1% cupfuls of cherries (fresh or
canned), 1 cup of sugar, small piece
of butter. 2 cupfuls of boiling water.
Pour the dressing over the batter In
a pudding pan and place In the oven.
Bake three-quarters of an hour. In
baking the batter will rise to the top
and the cherries sink to the bottom.
,while the dressing will be In the bot-
tom of the pan. This pudding is best
served a little warm, with cream.
Most any fruit can 'be used in place
of cherries.
INFANT MORTALITY.
A study of statistics discloses the
fact that by far the greatest number
of deaths among infants results from
what is medically called Intestinal
catarrh, or "summer complaJnt." Here
wo find that the larger the city the
greater the mortality rte. This Ii
primarily due to the more frequent
artificial feeding of the infant in the
larger cities.
Next as a scourge is eenemia.
which goes hand In hand with the
devitalized condition of the parents
under the stress of Industrial con-
ditions that hold where life is con-
gested; for the country has a smaller
death rate from this source.

SPORTING BREVITIES,
Cornell now holds all the records
for the intercollegiate regatta course
on the Hudson.
Who will coach the Princeton
track team next season appears to
be a mystery right now.
R. N. Trane, No. 3 In the Wiscon-
sin varfjity boat, Is captain of the
crew for the coming season.
The Hevella won the Emperor's
Cup for sonderclass boats at Kiel.
The Crown Prince's Angela IV. was
second.
The Crown Prince Frederick Will-
iam of Germany will send his boat,
Angela. to compete in the yacht races
to be held off Marblehead. Mau.
Even though Wisconsin did Anish
next to last in the varsity eights'
race at Poughkeepsie the Badgers are
likely to be on the Hudson iext sea-
son.
After many crews had been
swamped in the first two events the
annual regatta of the Long Island
Rowing Association had to be halted
because of choppy seas.
The Yale Field track team seems
to be trying on sprinters. More of
them have broken down there nla the
last few years than Johnny Mack
likes to think of.
Laagtord seems to be unable to
secure a match with anybody in this
country. He says nobody but Jet-
tries is barred, but there's no chance
for him to hook up with Johason or
Ketchel.
W. A. Brady, when interviewed In
onpdop recently, repeated his asser
tion that :effrles will 'never fight
again. "Jeff Is all Ian. said Brady,

AMERTCA.
Joseph E-- went with his moth-
er last fall to spend the winter at
Los Angeles. His mother felt so
much better there than she did In the
East that papa said they would stay
a year. Joseph was very well pleas-
ed, partly' because he was glad to
see his dear mamma so well and
happy and partly because there were
so many nbw and queer things In
Otalifornia, that he wanted to stay
and learn all be could about them.
One day he was standing by the gate
when a couple of children passed on
their way from school. One .was the
boy who lived next door and the oth-
er was a bigger boy.
"What are those things on your
coat?" asked Joseph.
The boy next door looked down at
the front of 'his coat, which had a
great many little brown sticks brist-
ling out of it-at least, they looked
like sticks..
"That fillaree," said he.
"What's It there for?" asked Jo-
seph.
"Put there to see it wind up," an-
swered the boy.
Then the bigger boy stopped.
"Do you see that weed with the
little pink blossoms?" he asked
"Well, those bunches of pods belong
to It, and when the pods get dry
you just pull them apart, like this,
and stick them into your coat, and
the end begins to go around and
around-like a clock hand. Some of
the boys call them clocks."
As be4spoke, he pulled off one of
the little brown seeds, with its long,
sharp end, or wing, and stuck it Into
bis eleeve, and, sure enough, the
free end commenced to turn around
slowly until It had wound Itself into
.a cunning little corkscrew. Joseph
gased at it in astonishment.
"What makes It do that?" he asked,
but the boy could not tell, and so
joseph took a handful In to Aunt
Mary, who had lived several years
Ia California. and who knew a great
deal about the strange plants that
grow there.
"Aunt Mary, what makes the fill-
e re twist itself up so?" asked Jo'
sq*.
bAust Mary looked at the bunch of
agows pods.

"No, I can't. There aren't enough

"No, not enough for that. They

they belong. They belong out on the
hills and fields just where they fall,
&e that they can grow there another
year, and the cows and sheep can have
plenty of alfllerla to eat."
"And do you mean that the seeds
twist themselves right Into the
ground ?"
"Yes, they twist themselves Into
the- ground, very mu(.h the way a
corkscrew twists into a cork. And
the funny part of It l that they keep
at work almost all summer. For,
when the wing of the seed is wet, it
will straighten out all nice and flat
again. Of course, we do not have
any rain here In the summer, but
there is often enough fog to get the
little seeds pretty wet. ond then the,
long wing straightens out nice anil
smooth; and when the sun bhgin" .,,
shine, and It getq warm and dry.,
why it just twists up again an.1
pushes itself farther in every time.
And so It keeps on until winter
comes and the rains fall. It is -ready
to grow then. and by that time It
has gotten itseif-as nicely planted as
though some farmer had put it care-
fully under the ground with his hand.
It Is not wonderful how the heavenly
Father has phnned for even the small-
est things that He has made "-0.

Epileptics in Public Schools.
The compulsory education laws
drivie-theoretieally--all children but
fmbeclles and Idiots into the schools
and keep them there for a minimum
of six years tolling over their books,
whether or not they can see, hear or
think. Thus every city, town, village
and hamlet engages Itself to provide
for all classes of detectives and de-
generates above a certain level. But
this level Is not always maintained
in actual practice. For instance,
when the compulsory education law
went into effect in lBaltimore, eighty.
three epileptics, liable to seizures at
any hour, were found right In the
grades with the other children; while
in Philadelphia there are today, ac-
cording to Dr. Witmer'n estimate,
nearly 1,000 InLbeciles occupying desks
beside normal children. These un-
fortunates must either be provided
for in the public sc-hools, or cast

Birds of the Night.
Have you ever stopped to consider
how many birds there are abroad af-
ter nightfall? Writing lan Subrban
Life Bn. 8. Rowdlsh, the well-known
nnturallst, describes many such birds.
"The creeeh-owl," he says, "Is prob-
ablr the best-known member of the
o. wl family-the one most apt to come
abbut barns and houses and even into
the villages, yet its habits are not so
well known but that It In a much-
maligned bird. Its food consists, In
a very large degree, of rats and mice.
and it Is the quest of such vermin
which brings it about bhman h abits-
tions, where the pestiferoua rodents
often swarm. True this little owl
sometimes takes small birds, but they
are frequently English sparrows, for
which he is entitled to almost as
much credit as for his rat destrue-
tion. The ordinary note of this
liw-cles is a long-drawn. tremulous
whistle, which can be knitated auf-
ficlently well to call the owl to close
quarters. It has, however, a varied
repertoire of note* that, heard in the
stillness of the night, are almost
blood-curdling. It Is an Interesting
fact that this bird has two phases of
plumage-red and gray-assumed
without regard to sex or age or the
color of parents."
"Home is where" the heart Is," so
the poets as. But some declare, con-
tends the Kansas City Journal, that
home is here the grouch is on dis-
play.
HOME TESTING
A Sore and Easy Test on Coffee.


To decide the all important ques-
tion of coffee, whether or not it is
really the hidden cause of physical
ails and approaching fixed disease.
one should make a test of 10 days by
leaving off coffee entirely and using
well-made Postum.
If relief follows you may know to
a certainty that coffee has been your
vicious enemy. Of course you can
take It back to your heart again, if
you like to keep sick.
A lady says: "I had suffered with
stomach trouble, nervousness and
terrible sick headaches ever since I
was a little child, for my people were
always great coffee drinkers and let
us children have all we wanted. I
got so I thought I could not live
without coffee, but I would not ac-
knowledge that it caused my suffer-
Ing.
"Then I read so many articles
about Postum that I decided to give
it a fair trial. I had not used it two
weeks in place of coffee until I began
to feel like a different person. The
headache and nervousness disap-
peared, and whereas I used to be sick
two or three days out of a week while
drinking coffee I am now well and
strong and sturdy seven days a week,
thanks to Postum.
"I had been using Postum three
months and had never been sick a
day when I thought I would experi-
ment and see it it really was coffee
that caused the trouble, so I began to
drink coffee again, and Inside of a
week I had a siek spell. I was so ill
I was soon convinced that coffee was
the eause of all my misery, and I
went back to Postum. with the resaul
that I was soon well and strong again
and determined to stick to Postum
and leave so e a o aIn the future."

A Thrilling Sport.


i


From Fi ederick Booth's "Swordfish-
1Ig Off Cape Cod" In August St.
Nicholus: The few sportsmen who vis-
it the Ma.lssachusetta coast in the
sunmm(.r for big fishing become ac-
,(ainled only with the sea bass and
the shark, while the swordfl-h, re-
umnining always in the open bea, is
left to the tender mercies of the men
who fish not for sport, but for a live-
lihood. eYt if the lover of exciting
sport should care to master the use
of the harpoon and resort to the open
ca for his diversion, he would dis-
cover in the swordfish a fit subject
for his most ambitious efforts, and
become acquainted with the swiftest
swimmer, the hardiest fighter, and,
withal, one of the most Interesting of
the denizens of the ocean.
Young readers of the August St.
Nicholas are fortunate In having re-
produced for them two of Mr. Frank
W. lenson's paintings: "A Calm
Morning" and his "Portrait of My
Daughters."
The stories and pictures and the
rhymes and sketches of the August
number of St. Nicholas are all that
the offerings of a midsummer holiday
number ought to be.
The number of pupils enrolled In
the public schools of the United
States in 1907 was 16,820,000, and the
average daily attendance 11.818,000:
while the students in colleges, unl-
versities and schools of technology.
who numbered 38,000 In 1880. 56.000
in 1890 and 98,000 In 19o0, aggregated

:Is
soTT.


It has been estimated that one-
fourth of the world's diet is fish. Al-
though that proportion is ha-dly true
in the United States, yet this coun.
try ranks first in the value. of its fishlab-
eries, the annual catch amounting to
one-fifth of that of the whold world,
which is estimated to be ten billion
pounds, valued at three hundrel mill-
ion dollars.
This country would not hold its
rank were it not f;r the work of the
government Bureau of Fisheries, an I
one of the mnst inter ting features
of this office is the introduction of
fish into other than native waters andI
the bringing of foreign fish into
American waters.
A most noteworthy instance of its
success in ths direction was the ac-
climatizition of t: e s:al and striped
bass on the Pacific coast, where tthe
annual catch amounts to th ry mnill-
ions, valuel at one million dollars.
The bureau is m'nting with grattfy-
ing success in transferrin t:le Atlan-
tic lobster to the Pacific, and the
Pacific salmon to the waters of New
England and the Mildle Atlantic
states.

The method of transporting the
various fish from one end of the con-
tinent to the other, often hatching
them en route, has been reduecd to
a silence. The traveling incubator
is a queer kind of oar. resembling In
some respects an ordinaryy Pull-nin
sleeper Iut along the sides, instead
of rows of chairs, there are galvan-
ized Iron tanks in which are set the
ten-gallon cans-somewhat like largo
milk o3ns-in wh,'.'h the fih fry are
hipped. Th's replacement is not
complete, however, for a part of the
space Is occupied by a strange-look-
ing apparatus c nslstlng of liass
jars, glaF a aquaria, and a complicated
arrangement of glass tubc. and rub-
ber pIping, which are the hatching
batteries.
At one end of the vehicle is a
stateroom belonging to the captain.
At the other end of the car is a
kitchen. Heds for the rcst of the
crew-which, by the way, consists of
the captain, three messengers and a
cook-are exactly like the upper
berths of an o-rd.nary sleeper. The
cbiirs have no kgs, but are place
on top of the fish-tanks. Adjoining
the kitchen is an engine-room. whicl
contains the steam-pumps for circulat-
ing water and air, and a five-norse-
power boiler.
When practicable, the young fish to
be planted in the various waters are
shipped as fry, but when time may
be saved by hatching them on the
way, the eggs are forwarded from
the various fish-collecting stations of
the government,,
The captain of a transportation car
Is overwhelmed with urgent unties
when he receives a consignment of
fry and ems, for he often has upward
of three million baby, fish and fifty
thousand eggs to care for.
In the case of a shad shipment,
S peaullar care has to be -exercised, as
Us baby fish are more delicate than
as, other scaly youngsters. The

Man's Hands and His Pockets.
"Nowadays," said Judge Willlis,
"men will even stand talking to
women with their hands in their
pockets.' The observation is wholly
accurate, but Kf it is Intended as an
illustration of the impudence of mod-
ern men we take leavrto say there
Is some mistiKe. The truth is that
the poor creatures do not know what
to do with their hands. The ocxket
pose expresses diflmd nce, not assur.

embarrassment of the' man, leading
him to feel all limbs and extronvitles,
is plainly a tribute to the dazzling
qualities of the woman.

The somber, long-halred, seedy.
looking man was speaking in a voice
of rolling thunder.
"A million times a million fateful
curses sit balefully athwait his hate-
ful head of tow! Though the gloomy
eons may his black sul flit home-
less forever!"
"Off his balance. I suppose?" ob-
served the stranger.
"Oh, no," said Smith, "that's Rimer,

The performance decrlbed bas to be

Some kinds of fish are carried in
the car in fifty-gallon tanks, through
which a continutias supply of fresh
water and fre.-h air Is for d by the
steam-and air-punmrs. This process is

As the Cape Cod canal will cause

In brief, smoking is not a mere
matter of drugging the system, nor
even of acquiring a certain taste in
the mouth; the sense of sight enters
Into It considerably and Imagination

HUGE GAME-PRESERVIL

British Attempt to Save Animals
From ERxtrmlpatlon.
The East Kootenay district of Brit.
tsh Oolumbla is to become a huge
game-pieserve during the next 10
years. according to a -proclamation
from the Lieutenant Governor and
Executive Council of British Colum-
bla. This region is located 63 miles
north of the United States boundary
line, and fts eastern limit Is the Elk
River, which lies 15 miles west of
Alb.rtb. It includes that section of
territory which has been suggested as
the Goat Mountain Park, and the to.
tal area is approxiLmately 450 square
miles. In this great tract of country
there is to be an absolutely closed sea-
son for 10 years on mountain sheep,
mountain goats, mule deer, elk and
the other important wild animals
found in that locality.
At the present time. says Harper's
Weekly, the district under preserva-
tion contains an abundance of game
of many varieties, although the elk
and mule deer have been greatly
thinned out by visiting sportsmen. A
conservative estimate by guides, who
ane familiar with the country, places
the nuruber of white mountain goats
at about 1000 and mountain-sheep at
200 head. Along the upper ranges of
the mountains grizzly bears may be
found, and very probably there are
50 or move in the East KoAtenay pre-
serve. *

A More Practical Way.
It was the dreamy hour when the
Christmas dinner, having been
eaten, was doing its best to digest it-
self and the girls were talking in
the hushed tones appropriate to the
occasion.
"I've just heard of a new charm to
tell whether any one loves you. and
if so, who it is," whispered Elsie.
"What is it?" queried Sophie, ab-
sently fingering her new diamond
ring.
"Well, you take four or five chest-
nuts, name them each after some man
you know, and then put them on
the stove, and the first one that pops
is the one that loves you."
"H'm," said Sophie. "I know a
better way than that."
"Do you?"
"Yes, indeed. By my plan you
take one 'particular man, place him
on the sofa in the parlor, sit close
to him with the light a little low,
and look into his eyes. And then,
If he doesn't pop, you'll know it's
time to change the man on the sofa."

High Prices for Horseshoes.
General St. Clair Mutholland, vet-
eran and historian of the Civil War,
tells an incident showing the utter
worthlessness of Confederate paper
money at the close of the war.
"Shortly after Lee's surrender,"
says the General, "I was a short dis-
tance from Richmond. The ('onfed-
erate soldiers were going home to
become men of peace again, and
were thinking about their farms.
"One had a lame, broken-down
horse which he viewed with pride.
*Wish I had him, Jim,' said the oth-
er. 'What'll you take for him? I'll
give you $20.000 for him.'
"' o,' sald Jim.
"'OGve you $50,000.*'
"~No,' said Jim.
"'Give you $100,000,' bhis friend
said.
***"'Not much,' replied Jim. 'I just
gave $120,000 to have him shod.

Comfort an? Your

Summer Clothes
By )Dr. W. R C. Latson.
T ile coat for summer wear should be loose and of some light open-
wove material. A very commonn fault in all coats is that $he
collar is made too short, thus causing more or less pres re
upon the back of the neck. This pull of the coat collar tends to
drag the head of the wearer forward, thus contracting the chest
and Interfering ,with the action of the lun:s and other vital or-
g'ans. This means a lowering of the body's power of breathimug ald
other vital functions. This, of course, means a loss of general vitality and
diminution of the body's power to resist the heat; and thus adds more than
one would think to the discomfort s of the hot weather.
As to the waistcoat. the garment is had enough at any time, but during
the hot weather it is an abomination. It is gratifying to note that most well-
dressed men discard the waistcoat during the sumilnner.
Suspitlders are happily little worn during ti' t lsutmmer. Nor should they
be. either then or at any other season. For the suspenders are uncomfortable
and injurious in many ways. They are uncomfortable because, of all the ap-
pliances worn by men, they prtti(uue the most incessant. strong and unrelent-
ing pressure. Air can pass througfi th* ."oat, the shirt, even the waistcoat;
but under the place where 'ihe suspenders cling about the chest, back and
shoulders no air can get. As every mian: knows, the suspenders are the hot-
test thing he can possibly wear.
True, a tight belt Is nearly as had,. but it Is not necessary to wear a
tight belt-or a belt at all unless you wish 'bto do so for appearance sakt'.
How, then, are we to keep their trousers in place? Very easily. Jiavt
the trousers cut so as to fitt snugly over the hips; have the buckles it the' sidis
just over the hip bones, instead of at ti the back, and ) oi will have not the
slightest discomfort or difficulty in keeping the trousers up.
The pressure is distributed over tlhe' hips and the sacral region so that it
is felt hardly at all. There is perfect fri,,eedom of n!r ;iriik and shouldPrs and
there Is no need f(~' the tightly-drawn belt that is not only ugly and uncom-
fortable butt actually injurious. In iny own case I have not worn either sus-
penders or belt for twenty years, bult have' worn trousers which, being cut
with a closely fitting body, have kept themse.lv..es in place without the slightest
discomfort or annoyance.
Tailors call trousers cut In this way "hip trousers," and any good prac-
tical cutter cttn draft the pattern so that :he t rousers shall be. as they ought
to be, very full across the lower part of thie seat anil the, thighs falling in
artistic lines to the ankle, and yot holding a firm, gentle, grip over the hips.--

Unconscious Worry.

nuj:ber of people worry unconscilously. They don't understand why
they are so tired in the morning, why their sleep was so dis-

This a&ental disturbance Is often caused by the habit of taking
things tow, ariously, carrying too greut a weight of responsl-
bility. *Evowywhere we see ,people who take life too seriously.
Most of us amn like the motornmn, who not only starts and stops
the car and tries to keep true running over people, but also feels tremendous
anxiety and responsibility about the motive power.
One of the most helpful lessons life can impart Is that which shows us
how to do our work as well as It can be done and then let Principle take
care of the result. How often have we been amazed to and ttlngs come out
much better than we anticipated; to fnd that the great unseen Power that
governs our lives through a wilderness of trial and tribulation Into the open

The Old Must Go.
By Orison Swett Marden of Buccess Magazine
THZ up-to-date business man Is constantly breaking up old-time sye.
teams which have been handed down from father to son for
many generations. The progressive man pays very little at.
tention to what was done in the iost. 11ie knows that the
world Is new every day. that it requires new treatment. He
faces the sun of progress, he looks toward the light, he holds
his mind open. lie does not care how many people have done the
work before, or In what way they have done It. or how many superstitions en-
girdle the thing he is working upon, he does his work in his own way. The
present state of the world's progress is the result of the constant breaking
away from the past, the elimination of worn out machinery, of cast-off ideas,
foolish superstition, prejudice and worn out. methods.
England not long since sold thirty-one modern warships, which cost
fifteen million dollars, for less than five per cent. of what it cost to build
them. These ships had not been in commission a great many years, but
such has been the progress in shipbuilding that they are already ou't of date.
A great throbbing, almost human, HIoe printing press today throws off
completed papers faster than one person can count them, and great rolls
of paper are reeled off almost as fast as a horse can trot. The largest
skyscraper in New York would not hold enough such printing presses as were
used fifly years ago to turn out the same amount of work in equal time.
Everywhere the new is crowding out the old.
Life In the city has become so intense that it is necessary to break loose
from it every now and then, to get in closer touch with nature, and "drink
power from the fountain kead"; to get so( close to Mother Earth that she
can whisper her secrets in our ears.
It is a great thing to keel) one's self growing in this age of specialists.
The man who continues to work in a rut. who confines himself to one
special line, betrays every year a lessening tendency to reach out Into new
fields, to expand, to grow outside of his litti, line of endeavor. People
who 'take no vacation lose, the rhythm of life.. Their days are all monotonous
work.
Play is just as important to symmetrical development, to a well bal-
anced life, as work. A vacation helps to balance ohr powers, to give us a
more symmetrical development. It keeps us froui hbecoming one sided. It

SThe effect, past peseat and pros.

wbo aave ooe Mtbher from Europe
darling the last sixty years is a sub-
$et of endless discussion, but very
little attention ba been given to the
retroastiv efftet produced on their
boame-keeping countrymen by emia-
grants returning from America to
their native lands, says the New York
Sun.. With 800,000 of these in 1907

erable. An Independent Investigation
of the question has been undertaken

lead, and we find the outcome of his
observations set forth In the June
number of the American Review of
Reviews.
To appreciate what these return-
Ing emlgrante have done we should
recall the fact that previously to the
beginning of emigration to America
the Slavic peasants both in hungary
and Poland were gradually losing
allotments of land and were deterior-
ating physically and socially. Intem-
perance and Indolence were driving
them into the hands of usurers, and
.they were fast dropping Into the land-
less class and 'into dependence upon
casual labor. The returning emigrant
from the United States set a very
different example. He evinced au
aerneass to buy the land which the
dearth of labor and the resultant rise
of weget often frced large land own-
era to sell. UMr. Steiner says that
4ultag the ears between 1899 and
1906 the land owned by peasants in.
Creased In some districts as much as
408 per cent. and even if all the emi-
grant furnishing districts iq Austria*.
Hungary and Russian Poland are tak-
en together, toe increase in tour
years reached the remarkable figure
of 173 per cent. The deduction from
these facts is that not only wm-money
brought back from the United Stites
and invested In land, but the home-
keeping peasant 4alo was led by ex-
ample to become more Industrious and
thrifty. Mr. Stelner has been told.
be says, by unbiased landwoners and
manufacturers that while wages have
risen In toe oaunttles named nearly
60 per cent. since the emigration to
the United States began, the eSelenot

We are getting motor wild. We
arE thinking that going fast Is the
obhef end of life. Here Is a man an
New York who claims he has Invent*
ed a vehicle that will go a million
miles a minute; that is, when it gets
in good running order. At the start,
he purposes to go from New York to
Chicago In 90 minutes. And then
sometimes he witi go to Mars in 140
minutes.
He proposes to do this in a motor
worked on the principle of centrifugal
force. There are no wings or pro-
pellers to this vehlole. It Is simply
a projectile. Such speed will beat the
planets. It will keep up with a comet,
and rup around it. and guy jt for
being so slow. The Investor maiht
get It ready to accompany Halley's
comet, on Its grand cye!e around the
sun, next year. Very InterestUng euch
a flight would be. It would make the
Wright boys' medals worth not 80
cents.
Yes, we are getting very fast: too
fast, even on earth, without pestering
the skies. Our bralnworks are keyed
to our legs and we had better be care.
