Senator and again in 1900. In
1904 he was elected governor by

Two years later he was re
flected by 88, 000. Again he was
made governor last year.
Johnson was not a "society

leads the general strike of the
guests. Cunningham, however,
proves an efficient strike breaker
by jerking off his coat and de
claring physical supremacy.
Meanwhile, the main love
story which has been develop
ing that of Hicks and the head
nurse, Molly Kelly is entirely
out of the ordinary.. Added to
the complications in which Hicks
finds himself, is an enforced
treatment of the water-cure,
caused by a patient who has been
sent to the sanitarium. The
latter has been directed by his
physician to deliver, a letter of
instructions to the head nurse.
This letter he gives to Hicks, and
using Hicks' own language,
"Patsy got a free bath."
Among some of the others in
quarantine are an attractive
widow and her spoiled son; an
Italian organ grinder who falls
in love with the widow, after
posing as a "gentleman" and is
given a heart-breaking refusal;
and a coal heaver who tried to
escape on account of wanting to
get married next morning. '
Although the comedy is written
to give supremacy over the music
there are ten musical numbers,
including, "Thursday Is My

Honeymoon, "Blow the Smoke
Away," "I Don't Like Your

Select any Red Cross style you wish, a

shoe for general wear. Put it on in the
store and you can walk home in it, wear it
all day in perfect comfort. It is comfort

The sole of the Red Cross Shoe, tanned by the
special Red Cross process, is flexible. It bends
wjth your foot. It entirely prevents the burning,
drawing and aching that stiff soles cause.
The styles this fall are extremely becoming, they
make your foot look better than it ever did. Let
us show them to you.

Plenty of Water Around His Land, but

Air Keeps Northern Men In Good
In spite of their differences regard
ing the discovery of the north pole and
other matters, In one thing Commander
Peary and Dr. Cook are in thorough
agreement With the other men who
have sought "farthest north" records
they declare that expeditions to or to-'
ward the pole would be almost if not
quite impossible without the aid of tbe
Eskimos. Almost all of the long line
of arctic explorers have fully acknowl
edged their indebtedness to the men
of the north for their familiarity with,
arctic conditions and their willingness
to work as sledge drivers and burdea
The only true Eskimos on this con
tinent live on the west coast of Green
land from TJpernavik to Etah. in the
heart of the. arctic, less than 700 miles
from the pole, where so many fearless
explorers have spent their long, dark:
winter night before the final dasS oa
foot and sledges ' over ice and hum
mocks of ice.
With all their virtues of industry,
honesty, peaceableness and docility
the Eskimos are the filthiest people in
the world. They never wash, not even
face and hands. The smell of their
fur clothing and secretions from the
skin causes an odor about their per
sons, and especially in their igloos and
tents, that is unbearable to tenderfeet.
Living in huts of stone or ice la
winter, in seaisKin tents in summer..
Eskimos never marry in the sense we
use this word, but mate like animals.
Swapping of mates for an indefinite
time is common. Eskimos are the
most widely scattered people on the
globe, dwelling together- in smalr
bands, without central authority or
government. There are less than 40,
000 Eskimos all told.
Safe From Many Diseases.
Eskimos live almost entirely on raw
animal food, and this explains t he
absence of a number of diseases which
are common to civilization. Scurvy, so
common and deadly among early polar
explorers, is totally unknown among
Eskimos who eat raw meat. This raw
food also explains the absence of en
larged tonsils, glands and goitre. Their
perfect, splendid teeth and strong low
er jaws mark them completely carniv
orous. The exclusion of vegetable food
has shortened their intestine, and in
digestion is unknown. One would
suppose their pure flesh diet would
cause biliousness, etc., but the large
percentage of oil in their food acts as
a gentle laxative and protects thtn
against all harm. The Eskimo eat
with relish old rotten blubber that
would stagger a buzzard.
Consumption is unknown among the
Eskimos in the north, nor is there any
skin or bone form of tuberculosis, but
when brought to the United States;
they contract consumption in most vir
ulent form. Of six brought to New
York all contracted the disease in less
than six months.' One who returned,
to his arctic home made a quick cure.
It is well known that the long arctic
winter, with its depressing effects oa
body and mind, often upsets the best
balanced nervous system, even of the
natives. But this hysteria vanishes
wiia me summer, explorers uave sur
fered in the same way, and two have
committed suicile. In summer Eski
mos get so full blooded that nose
bleed ins is verv common.
All degenerative diseases that cause
so much suffering and death in civili
zation are absent from the Eskimos.
The pure, sterile arctic air contains no
germs, but the natives invariably take
a bad "ship cold" when they go aboard
white men's ships. Nature acts the
good sanitarian in the far north and
shuts the door against all dfsease-
enrms Thp nst nt rpmpdlpq !thpr In
ide or out is unknown. Wounds heat
up at once without mattering. All tu
mors, warts and cancers are unknown..
Walrus Hunting Is Perilous.
The large number of children ancE
lusty young widows shows the dangers:
of walrus bunting. The kayak, in
which the hunting is done, is a very
frail craft. The Eskimo' can't swim
The wounded walrus tears or sinks:
the little skin canoe, and widow, chil
dren and relatives become comment
At a distance it is difficult to distin
guish an Eskimo man from his mate,,
as the sexes dress similarly. The out
er clothing consists of trousers and a
coat fitting close to the body and cov
ering the head by a prolongation of
the coat, like a hood. The clothing is
made of the skins of seals, land ani
mals and birds. Some of the southern.
Eskimos have been Christianized, and
their mode of life 'has been brought
somewhat into conformity with civi
lized ideas. The great majority o
them, however, believe in a crude form
of nature worship and hero veneration.
First Case of September St awberries.
The first September strawberries'
ever "heard of in New Jersey were
placed on sale in Belvidere, N. J., at
fancy prices. They came from the
fara of David Miller, Just across the-
river in Pennsylvania.. He has beer
experimenting with late berries and
declares that they are just as good ass
those which bloom In Jane.
