The San Mateo Item began publishing in 1891. F.A. Bailey was one of its early editors. The paper periodically appeared under the title of the Item. It is unknown when the San Mateo Item finally ceased publication, but holdings are reported in the Putnam County Archives for 1913. San Mateo is located in Putnam County in northeastern Florida. The area sustained various agricultural activities about which the San Mateo Item reported. San Mateo was also well known for its recreational opportunities, having more than a thousand ponds and lakes and approximately one hundred miles of access to the St. Johns River, especially attractive to bass fishermen. Sporting activities were of sufficient note to merit coverage by the British press. The Outing, a London sports magazine, complained in its 1891-92 issue that the Item had reprinted one of its articles without credit. The Outing asserted that its enterprise was dedicated in part to distributing “articles likely to attract the sportsman to Florida.” Apparently, San Mateo was worth watching.

Will Try to Fix It.
Quite a delegation from Florida-
pineapple growers and Repnbli.aiiK
-political leaders, leave for Wash-
Ington to-day to see if sometliing
cannot be done toward getting a
higher duty oil plne.'ppleis.
The business in Florida as it now
stands is (doomed. Many crates will
not be shipped this season lcantse
they will not pay expl)nsfes, owiing to
the quantities coinlaig from Cuba.
Of all the Congremsmuii, front Flor-
ida. Frank Clark seemss to be the
* only one who says lie will vote for
what others want in tihe tariff scho(d-
ule if they will give him the duties
he wants for the protection of his
people in Florida. California people
got busy: they got the duty on citrus
fruits they were after. With a big
fight dn by all the American litter-
eats in Cuba, the big canners, etc.,
and little effort on the part of Flor-
ida growers, the chances are that
this little delegation will iot be able
to (1do much in Washingtoin. At
least the thanks of the Florida pine-
apple growers are due the people be-
hind and pushing for the interests of
all the growers.

Heavy Pine Receipts.
New York, June 11.--The pine
apple market was in a demoralized
condition this week and prices ruled
low on Havanas, Porto Ricos and
Floridas. The conditions are (ldue to
heavy receipts, particularly of Ha-
vana pines of which there were 76,44)X
orates received. There was a limit-
ed demand and not heavy enough to
use the unusually heavy receipts.
Havana stock showed up iin ripe
conditLon: 24s sold from $1.25 to
01.46; 80s, $1 to $1.16; 86s, 90W to $1.10,
and 42s, 93o to $1.
Considering the heavy receipts of
Havanas, Porto Rico pines sold up
fairly well. Fruit as a rule was ripe
and the general range was $1 to $1.60
for 24sa;82c to $1.10 for 80s; 76c to $1
for 86s and 76o to 90c for 42s. One
stray fancy invoice sold as high as
$1.70 for 2a.
Prices on Florida pineapples
ranged as follows: 24s, $1.60 to $1.76;
Son, $1.15 to $1.60; .s, $1 to $1.90.
The bulk of the receipts come in ripe
aud unsound condition. Poor stock
ranged from $1 to $1.96.-New York

t* the above prices pineapple
grewere both nla Florida and Cuba
are simply working for the transpor-
tation eompanles. Not enough In It
to pay freight and packing charges.

Willis It. Powell, fortiier editor of
the St. Petersburg Iniidependent, has
been out on il Pacifil slope hliunitig

find it. so Ie' is oin ism way hoine hby
early stazes In a lengthy letC to
thile Inidependeit lie tells of iis ex-
periences. This letter lie signii "'W.
B. Powell, P. C.," and in a footnote
explains that P. C."mineas "Permn-
nent Cracker." Among other tlinigs,
Mr. Powell says: "1 may hle ireju-
diced, but yet I am honest in wlihat I
bIlieve. Hy tihe time I return to
Florida it will have cost me a pretty
penny to satisfy mIlyself as to the
better climate of the two states. I
camie Ihere after a residence iii
Northern California eleven year3 s
ago. I knew there was a ditff.rencev
In the climate between that of North
and South California. I did not like
the Northern Californiaclimnate, and
so concluded to take a try at South-
ern California. Those who say I
came here prejudiced cannot !find
anything in lly miovenients to prove
their assertion. I came here with
household goods to Iake Southerni
California iny home. I like its p'o-
ple, the property which is evident
on every side. I havfe ridden by
auto for twenty nillen in a straight
line through gIoves of lemons, or-
anges and walnits. I appreclate
the wealth ofsoil. I will admit that
the earth here is soil, and that as
maify an eleven crops of alfalfa are
gathered in a year. but I still believe
that Florida has the better clilatle-
the lost equable, the allost delight-
ful-that Florida isa more healthful,
and that the possibilities in Florida
for the settler, the artisan, the pro-
fessional man, the capitalist. is
greater than in California." And
this is the emphatic manner in
which he closes hia letter: "In con-
cluslon, I am going back to Florida
to make that state my permanent
home. After traveling the United
States from Maine to Hawaii, from
Michigan to Florida-a pilgrimage
extending over a score of years, 1
will be content to become a Floridian
in the fullest soanse of the word."-

l m- Jaeas.s, writes
OMe AlI.W desertbes the Turkish
aM for eating a recrrese this
year of the score of locusts In
noNern Syria:
During the months of June and
July, 1908, this province was v'slted
by great swirms of locusts, permeat-
Iag every locality to such an extent
Jhat the crop then standing, as well
as the vegetables In their early state.
were entSIr destroyed. As this is
purely an agricultural country, tho
hardship caused thereby to the pea-
santry amounted to almost a calam-
ity. In partially irrigated districts
the second crop was planted, the
product of which was soll to local
lahabitants at exorbitant prices.
It appears that the !?cust lays n
enormous quantity of eggs soon after
a long flight, depositing them in a
protecting sack In a hbole it makes In
the ground. These eggs hatch out
nl the following spring. and unless
the climate is exceedingly cold during
the winter season the Increase
therefrom is enormous.
Accordingly, considerable *jtivity
,has recently been manifest in omficlil
circles in this vicinity toward pre-
venting a recurrence of the deplorable
devastation of last year. With thiq
Idea in view a commission was lately
appointed 4by the government, anJ
designated as the "locust commis-
sion," empowered to exercise such
means as appeared most effective to-
ward exterminating the Insects. The
commission therefore requires, that
every rural inhabitant collect and de-
liver to the government at least 20
okes (oke equals 2% pounds), equal
to about 55 pounds of locust eggs,
under penalty of a fine. This has re-
suited in the gathering of various
quantities from the different locali-
ties, as follows: Killis 35,335 okes:
imperial domains, 99,385 okes; Alep-
po, 19,285 okes; Rakka, 1,970 ckes;
Blredjik, 8.680 okes; Ourfa, 2,5642
okes; Bab, 61.851 okes; total, 299,043
okes, equal to 629,882 pounds.
In addition, the surface of certain
territories was plowed over as fol-
lows, viz.; Munboutch, 5,525 doonums
(doonum equals one-fourth acre):
Maara, 5,275 doonums; Idlib, 4,0S0
doonums; Aleppo, 274 doonums: Im-
perial domains, 1,000 doonums, total,
16,154 doonums, equivalent to 4,03814
It is assumed by those in authority
that these meagAres, while not likely
to entirely prevent the reappearance
of the locusts during the coming
spring and summer montma, will tend
greatly to reduce them in numbers,
at least sufficiently so to enable a
more successful combat and destruc-
tion of them through the use of cheAin
Icals and by other processes.-Daily
Consular and Traae Reports.

An Inventive Genius.
Nikola Tesla, the wman who harness.
ed Niagara, was talking to an Inter-
viewer about inventors.
"The successful Inventor," said Mr.
Tesla, smiling, "has an odd. quaint
mind, a mind full of surprises. Thus
anethurst, I am convinced, was an
inventor at heart, though circum-
stances had made a grocer of him.
"Smethurst. during his seaside ho'!-
day, was seen upon the boardwalk!
with a large bottle under his arm.
'Smethurst.' said an acquaintance,
'what have you got in that bottle that
I see you carrying about with yoj
day and night?',
"'Chloroform,' said Smethqrst.
"'What the deuce are you doing
* with chloroform here on the board.-
"'That big dub of a Jones.' said
Sm*thurst, 'has threatened to give me
a sound thrashing the first time he
nmets me. and as soon as I ee him
.oinag I'm golng to take a good
dose. I don't propose to usaer If I
ean belp It.' "-Philadelphia Record.

Many seem to think that after, the
crop is set, the trees are going to ma-
ture It some way and anything they
can save on fertilizer is clear gain,
but actual results prove that a sum-
mer fertilizing costs less than noth-
Ing. By making each fruit a little
larger many boxes are added to the
crop and the fruit brings a higher
price. Then, a luxuriant growth of
bearing wood is a necessary founda-
tion for a large crop next year, and
still further gain Is seen In the con-
dition of the trees. If their vitality
has been kept up they are better pre-
pared for winter and for strong spring
action than trees that have become
thoroughly exhausted and have to be
nursed up before they can respond to
the call of spring.

On the Florida committee on selling
and distributing by the California
Fruit Growers' Exchange were L. B.
Skinner, W. B. Gray, H. E. Heitman,
O. W. Sadler, David Scott and C. H.
Walker. Mr. Skinner read the fol-
lowing report:
I cannot refrain from saying that
I was Impressed with the great care
exercised by the most successful as-
sociations In handling their fruit,
from the time the fruit is packed until
It is delivered on the cars. While the
California orange is less susceptible
to decay and less liable to injuries
from bruises, they have found that
careful handling in picking and pack-
ing pays. While it costs a very lit-
tle more to be careful, the increase in
market price received Is at least four
or five times as much as the extra
packing cost, and besides makes the
demand for the fruit greater.
I was impressed with the very large
expenditure for packing house facill-
ties--new equipment and cold storage
plants. You will be astonished to
learn that one organization has ex-
pended as high as $100 per acre in
packing house equipment in connec-
tion with a pre-cooling plant. These
features are covered by other mem-
bers of other committees, but as a
grower and packer of fruit I saw
much that I would all my fellow-
growers could have seen.
They have really an orange inferior
to ours in every respect ,but appear-
ance; they look good, but they have
only about a third as much Juice, as
a Florida orange, and when you take
the peeling from a one hundred ano
twenty-six orange, you only have an
orange of the two hundred size left
to eat, and you might be glad of a
wringer if you were after Juice.
They look good, carry well and
bring the money-this seedless, juice-
leEs California orange, and they are
successfully marketing a crop twice
the size of the Florida crop. Just
now they are experiencing a season
of low prices-they held their fruit
back a little too long and It began
to dry up and lose what little Julce It
still had.
How They Do It.

of the market demanded. I was Ils-
pressed with the fact that every job-
ber, no matter be he great or small,
was sure that there would be no
slump in his market, because the ex-
change would not permit a glut any-
where, and the consequent slaughter-
Ing of prices, If It could be avoided.
Every buyer could go ahead with rea-
sonable assurance of a steady market
and even demand.
After each association had done Its
work properly in gathering and pack-
ing the fruit, the work of the central
office of the Southern California Fruit
Exchange proper commences. Every
day there is made up an extended
and complete report of market condi-
tions throughout the country, reports
of actual sales and actual fruit move-
ments of each and every variety from
every packing association, to -each
and every market in the United
States and Canada; the number 9f
these that are sold and the number
that are unsold, the number that are
moving without orders, and that are
moving with orders. This report cov-
ers the entire citrus movements of
all the exchanges.

A Daily Report.
This dally report Is in the hands of
each packing house association on the
following day, and is open to every
grower who is a member of the as-
sociation. By means of this report he
Is enabled to decide when it is best
to move his fruit, of course, under
the direction of the local association,
of which he is a member. There is
an immense amount of labor and ex-
pense incurred in getting together
and issuing in proper form this In-
formation, -which goes direct to the
We want to know and want to
know all the time just what Is doing.
It is one of the most satisfactory and
valuable features which goes to the
making up of this organisation. it
puts the responsibility of choosing the
time of movement of fruit with the
growers themselves, at the same time
placing In their possession all knowl-
edge obtainable to enable them to de.
cide wisely and Intelligently. When
it is decided to what point the ship-
ment shall be made by the associa-
tion or subexchange, the fruit is
billed to the Southern California
Fruit Exchange at the point of desti.
nation and the bill of lading Is mailed
to the office in Los Angeles with the
grade and pack; these are also gen-
erally 'phoned in.
From this time on the fruit id
under the control of the Southern
California Fruit Exchange, which di-
reets Its movements to Its destina-
ties, lanspects It and takes charge of
It, delivers It to Its agents, aMd. In
ase a glut appears, diverts it else-
where, always, however, with the
oesent of the assouiatoI by whom it
was originally shipped. When the
bnul arves at its deisaIatis, it is

The great advantage of the system is
the complete method of distribution
all over the country, building up new
markets, increasing the demand of
old markets and pushing the bulness
Of course, the law of supply and
demand regulates the price, but the'
systematic efforts of the exchange
have greatly increased the consump-
tion of fruit in many, if not in all,
of the markets of the country.

Women Who Are Envied.
Those attractive women who are
lovely in face, form and temper are
the envy of many, who might be like
them. A weak, sickly woman will be
nervous and Irritable. Contelpation
or kidney poisons show in pimples,
blotches, skin eruptions and a very
wretched complexion.. For all such,
Electric Bitters work wonders. They
regulate stomach, liver and kidneys,.
purify the blood; give strong nerves,4
bright eyes, pure breath, smooth, vel-
vety skin, lovely complexion. Many
charming women owe their health
and beauty to them. 50c at 8. W.

lag districts with a district manager
in control of each district The office
of this district manager is always in
the western terminus of the railroad
system, so he can have the fruit mov-
ed on under the postage stamp freight
from point to point in his district.
or turn it over to the next district
east of him, as directed by the Cali
fornia Fruit Exchange. The prices are
fixed by the fruit exchange in Cali-
fornia, and the agent at any point,
Chicago, Buffalo or Cleveland, has no
authority to changeothe price or make
any allowance unless authorized by
the home office.
At all agency points the California
Fruit lfxchange has a bank account,
subject only to check from the home
office. When the-fruit Is delivered, it
Is at once paid for, and the money
passed to the credit of the exchange.
An accurate account, by means of
a card system, is kept of the daily
movement of each car across the
country and by means of the color of
the card the special sub-exchange oy
which it comes can be told at once.

lead better lives in the future.
The cloud, a green one, came from

Just a slight breeze blowing, which

but the costly plate glhss fronts were
protected by good stout awnings. Even
these awnings of heavy tin and cor-

Gets inquisitive in Broadway and Has
an Adventure.
The newsboys had stopped sel Ing
their papers to gaze through the iron
fence in front of Trinity Church yaril
on Broadway. A citizen of Kalama-
zoo. passing by, stopped to look too.
Before he had stood there a mo-
ment half a dozen heads were bob-
bing around his, looking in the same
direction. Attempting 1o back away,
he found himself wedged against the
iron bars by an ever Increasing crowd.
The sidewalk was blocked and many
passing around the outskirts of the
mass inquired what was the matter.
No one knew. but there were many
guesses. A man had dropped dead
of he3rt disease; there was a funeral
in the (hurchyard; the sidewalk had
caved in.
The street cars had become blocked
and a call was sent for the police.
The whole street was a Jam, and the
windows of the ofce buildings were
black with heads, when a dozen blue-
coats butted their way to the aeit
of the trouble.
The man from Ka'amasoo, who had
despaired of getting out alive, was
lifted from the 4wo forms beneath
him, which after some vigorous treat-
ment showed signs of life.
"Hey, youse," said the policeman in
obharge, "what tell's the matter?"
Slowly getting back his breath one
of the newsboys looked around va.
cantly for a moment, then his face
lighted up.
"Gee." he said, "dey was two chip.

A faithful government servant has

vant is an old horse named Caleb,
wilch for twenty-four years has de-
voted his energies to pulling a wagon
belonging to the United States Fish
Commission at Green Bay, Me. Last
week, after a serious attack of boles,
he showed his Insbllty to serve the
Government any further by lying in
his stall and refusing to be harnesed.
The oMcers at Green Day, knowing
that the animal's days of usefulness
were over, reported the fact t9 the
Department of Commerce and Labor
and asked for a new horte, also ex-
pressing the Intention of killing
Caleb. This report fell under the
eyes qf Secretary McHarg, and he
immediately Iraued an order that the
faithful aninmal be placed in the pas-
ture until he died a natural death.

in which a horse had been placed on

Coffee's Weight on Old Age.

When prominent men realize the
Injurious effects of coffee and th<
change in health that Poatum cai
bring, they are glad to lend their tes
timony for the benefit of others.
A superintendent of public school
In one of the southern state says:
"My mother, since her early child
hood, was an inveterate coTfee drink
er, had been troubled with her hear
for a number of years and complained
of that 'weak all over' feeling and
sick stomach.
"Some time ago I was making an
official visit to a distant part of the
country and took dinner with one ol
the merchants of the place. I noticed
a somewhat peculiar flavour of the
coffee, and asked him concerning it
He replied that It was Postum.
"I was so pleased with it, that after
the meal was over, I bought a pack
age to carry home with me, and had
wife prepare some for the next meal
The whole family were so well
pleased with it, that we discontinued
coffee and used Postum entirely.
"I had really been at times very
anxious concerning my mother's con.
dlUon, but we noticed that after us-
lag Poetum for a short time, she fell
so much better than she did prior to
Its use, and had little trouble with
her heart and no sick stomach; thai
the headache were not so frequent,
and her general condition much lna
proved. This continued until she was
as well and hearty as the rest of us.
"I know Postum has benefited my.
self and the other members of the
family, but not nla so marked a degree

was a victim of long standing." Read

"Where lI my little basket gonesr
Said Ctarlie boy one day;
'I taes some Uttle boy or girl
Has taken It away.

"And kitty, too, I can't find her;
Oh. dear! What shall I do,
I wlsh I could my basket find,
And little kitty too.

"I'll go to mother's room and look;
Perhaps she may be there,
For kitty loves to take a nap
In mother's easy chair.

"Oh, mother! mother! come and look,
See what a little heap!

All cuddled down to sleep."

And brought it in a minute;
And showed it to lhis mother dear

Johnny was going to sleep. every

lawn. The doctor said it would make
him stronger, and so everybody was
Johnnytimself thought it would be
fun. At first it did seem a little
strange to be sleeping right under
your own parlor windows, but even
when the cold weather came, Johnny
liked his tent-room the best.
For the doctor was one of the Jolly

then -when be dressed him up In a

One evening they made believe that
the lawn was a desert, and that John-
ny was an ancient Arab sleeping in
his tent. "But where is my ficr y
steed?" asked the little boy:
"Ah, I guess you'll have to take the I
great Camelopard-made of stara, up
there In the sky. Can't you see him'
No? Wel', perhaps he hasn't swung :
round there by your tent door yet, but
he will, never fear. See, there he is j

Tt was told me by Maritza. a littl-)
Greek girl In far-away Turkey, an I
I aim going to tell it here and now to
everyone, becautte I never have found
an American child who had discover-
ed It, explains a contributor to Little
I was finishing my breakfast one
morning when I heard a little soun I
at my elbow. It was Maritza. who
had slipped off her shoes at the outer-
door, and come s') softly through thi
open 'hall that I had not heard her.
After I had taken the parcel of
sewing her mother had sent. I gave
Maritza two oianges whi, h were left
in a dish on the table. One of them
'was big and the other quite small.
"One orange is for you." I said,
"and the othl,"r you may carry to
Louka. Which one will you give him."
Marltza waited :. long while be-
fore answering. At any timft she
woyld have th.qught it rude for a lit-
tle child to tinswer promptly o In
a voice loud enough to be easily
heard; but this time she waited even
longer than gr:od manners required.
She looked one orange over and over
and then the other. After a little
more urging ,fro.n me she whispered:
"This one." It w's the big one.
Curious to kr w of the struggle
which had made ber so long in decid-
Ing, I said: "But why don't you gi'/.
Louka the small awange? lie is a
small boy."
Maritza dug hel little stockinged
. toes into the c:rp'.t and twisted her
apron hem before ~i t answered.
"Is not Ann't waiting for me at
the gate?" she said. "Anna and I will
eat my orange togttner. Mine h',,
twelve pieces and t.he other only
eleven. Anna would ?P3t like to take
six places if I had only five."
"You cannot see through th3
orange skin, Maritza. to tell how many
pieces there are. How is it you
(know?" I asked.
Then MariljA told me the orange
secret, and It Ia this:
If you look Ut the stemin-end of an
orange, you wh asee the scar where
it pulled away Jrmn the stem like a
wheel, with spokes going out from the
center. If you oo'ant the spaces be-
tween these spokes, you will find that
there are junt an many of them an
there will be sections in the orange
when you open It; and so you can tell.
as Maritza did. how many "pieces"
your orange has.
Perhaps you think avery orange has
the same number, ju$t as every apple
has five cells which hold its seeds;
but you will find it tl not so. Why
not? Well. I do not know. But, per-
haps away back in the history of the
orange, when it is a flower, or per-
haps when it is only a bud. something
lmy happen which bhurti some of
the cells or makes some of them out
grow the rest. Then the number of
cells is mixed; and, no matter how
big, and ,plump, and Juicy the orange
becomes, it has no more sections than
it had when it was a Mttle green but-
toen, Just beginning to be an orange.
Thbe ext time you eat an orange,
try to 1d4' out its secrets before ym
ews i--Home Herald.

by the Wilmington, whose record was
S 7,448.
As the successful achievements of
'' 'these.creditable and record-breaking
performances are due almost entirely
to a particular method of training,
It will be of timely Interest to picture
and describe the dummy drill gun.

The new device is manufactured
entirely in the Brooklyn Navy Yard,
N. Y., In the ordnance machine shop.
It Is made mostly of steel; although
there are a few parts of brass and
cast Iron, the supporting framework
and return chute are entirely of steel.
The one shown in the accompanying
illustration is the latest seven-inch

precision in the handling of the pro-

the vessel reaches the range, and as,
at the speed assigned, a very short
time Interval is allowed for the run,
It is important to begin firing at once

rapidity and skill. The nimin object
of the "dummy loader" is to give the
shell men an opportunity to acquire
speed and proficiency In the handling
of the shells without wearing out the
breechblocks of the guns. Of late
much attention is being paid by all
the ships in the navy to these drills,
for in actual service much depends
upon the promtness and accuracy of
the shell mas. Should he "muff" a
shell at the critical moment, or let it
roll away from him, should he drop
it-in short, should he fail td send
it home safe and true when the
breechblock of the big gun is swung
open for him-the consequences
might be serious.
The "dummy loader" is the latest
invention of the Ordnance Depart-
ment, and is a facsimile of the breech
and powder chamber of a big gun up
the point where the rifling begins.
Leading it requires the identical mo-

Cancer In Belgalnm.
Consul If. Albert Johnson, at Liege,
reports that the new organizations for
combating cancer in Belgium held a
meet ing at Brussels recently and out-
lined a comprehensive plan for Its
future activity. The association will
affiliate with the international asso-
ciation for the systematic study of
cancerous diseases. One of Its first
tasks will be to acquire and systema-
tize all knowledge of the disease. It
will endeavor to give to the medical
profession the results of Its research,
in order that the disease may be com-
bated with better results. It was also
proposed to establish one or more In-
stitutions in Belguim to be devoted
especially to the study of cancerous

actively assisted nl establilhlng the

best guarantee of the growth of per-
sonal and political liberty. In this
they base their opinion on the expe-
rience of the most progressive West-
ern nations. Now the Persian worn
en are working for the establishment
of a national bank. Their patriotism
may be gathered from th1e fact that
maany thousands of women have agreed
to sell their Jewels and other orna-
ments to the end that sufficient capi-
tal may be 'obtained for the enter-
prise. The movement Is an amazing
development in a country which for
more than a score of centuries has
treated women as hopelessly Inferior

erence for a new shade, which. It Is
expected, will become popular under
the name of linden green. The name
Is drawn from the leaf of the linden
tree. This green already has been
seen In Fifth avenue in heavy serge
walking suits, with a deep, coarse
rib. The usual trimming is black
satin, and dull silver buttons are
used. The clever woman, however, is

tensive trimming. One of the most

gestion of trFmming. It seems a blow
against good taste to cover the pres-

lines of certain of these garments
are more artistic than any other de-
signs of recent years, and the long
easy lines are at their best when pre-
esenting an unbroken surface to the
eye.-New York Press.

Menus of Student Club of Men and of

The question whether men ea less
than women do or whether they buy
more economically is suggested to a
writer In Health Culture by a oom-
parlsos of the grocery bills run up
by men students and bachelor girls
who have clubbed together for the
purpose of cutting down expenses.
In every case in which tables for
comparison are given the men's menu
for the week costs less than that o!
the women. Both seem to have re-
duced the food allowance to the low-
eat possible terms, but in footing upl
the amount spent the women have run
into certain extravagance avoided by
the men.
'iMaybe," says the puzzled Inquirer.
"women really don't know how to
shop, after all. but the more likely
supposition is that no matter how
strict the regimen the feminine na.
ture requires certain luxuries that
mere man can get along without."

Judge-"You say you found this
fiveodollar bill ?"
Prisoner-"Yes, your honor."
Jtudgo-"And you didn't attempt to
restore It?"
Prltoser-"I did, your honor."
Judge--"To Its owner?"
Prisoner "No-to circulation."-

SEcsema For a Year-Got No Relief
Even at Stkln Hospital-In Despair
Until Caticura Cured RHim.
"I was troubled by a severe itching and.
dry, scurfy skin on my ankles, feet, arnim
and scalp. Scratching made it worse.
Thousands of small red pimples formed
and these caused intense itching. I was
advised to go to the hospital for disease?
of the skin. I did so, the chief surgeon
saying: 'I never saw such a bad came of
ecenia.' But I got little or no relief.
Then I tried many so-called remedies, but
I became so bad that I almost gave up in
despair. After suffering agonies for twelve
months, I was relieved of the almost un-
bearable itching after two or three applica-
tions of Cuticura Ointment. I continued
its use, combined with Cuticura Soap and
Pills, and I was completely cured. Henry
