TITLES OF THE ROMANOFFS
Alexander III. Wat Proud to Be Called
the Peasant Emperor.
The Into czar of Ittissla Is now known.
ns Nicholas llotnnnoff In tho great land
over which ho hold autocratic sway. It
Is not the tltlo by which Ihj expected to
Ko down to posterity.
M. do lllowltz, the famous correspond
cut of tho London Times at Paris, was
responsible for putting on record
story reKardliiR Alexander III., tho fa
thcr of Nicholas, which Is worth recall
hit: In this connection. The czar and
his courtiers had been discussing by
what added title ho should bo known In
hhtory. Ills father had been called
Alexander tho Liberator and Alcxan
der tho Martyr. What should the son
be called? "Alcxniider tho Just," bur.
Bested one. "Oh, no," replied tho czar.
"I am and shall remain tho peasant
emperor. So sonic of my nobility havo
styled mo in derision, scolllng nt my
affection for tho moiijlk. Hut I accept
tho tltlo ns an honor. I havo tried to
procure for tho humbln tho means of
livelihood, and this, I think, is Uin best
and only means of keeping tho world
going. My greutet ambition
is to descrvo to bear to tho last tho
tltlo of tho peasant emperor."
Llttlo could Alexander III. hnvo
thought that I ho world was so near tho
time when his son would run tho
chance of becoming tho "last of tho cm
perors of Itussla." Duudeo Advertiser.

ONE WAY TO WOO SLEEP.
Travel In Memory Some Road
Knew Well In Childhood.
It is hard for mo to remember now
that my knowledge of the sleepy road,
gained so many years ugo, came only
through tho chauco bit of ndvico drop
ped by a wise, kind, weary old doctor
as ho shufllcd at midnight down tho
corridor of the silent hospital, says tho
Whatever was tho errand of life or
death that hud called him In such
haste, ho had tlmo to stop and givo mo
a friendly word, nlthough I, a small
and Incorrigibly sleepless patient, was
sitting bolt upright nmong tho pillows
In dcflatico of all his orders and was
staring wide eyed into tho hot, pain
"You think you nro never going to bo
able to sleep again, don't you" ho oli
fccrved. "Well, shut your eyes and do
Just what I tell you. Think of somo
road that you know well, a good long
road that winds and turns and shows
you water nnd woods and hills. Keep
your eyes tight shut and travel along
It In memory. Go as slowly as you
can, recall every sight and sound and
pcrfumo as you pass by.
"I havo such a road of my own, tho
ono I used to walk to school when I
was eight years old. I havo started
out on it a hundred times when I
thought I could not sleep, but I never
get very far. I coma Just about to tho
old stouo bridge over Damon's creek or
perhaps to tho swimming hole, whera
tho willows dip Into tho brown water,
but I never reach tho end."
FACING THE CAMERA.
Don't Dreie Up and Don't Poie When
Having a Picture Taken.
'Thero nro many things I would llko
to say to tho woman who Intends hav

photographer tho other day.
"Many women coma to mo and say:
'Of course you prefer taking actresses.
They must havo many advantages over
those women who never havo tlmo but
to glvo un occasional glance In their
mirrors.' This is entirely a mistake.

"Ono of tho curses of our present dor
civilization is tho over changing ques

that tho kimono was perhaps tho most
perfect dress for women nt nil times
who only varied It with different liro

If physical culture is needed for

also to tlie soldiers of tho business and

The Head and Physical Marks of Intel.
Ilgence In Children.
In summing up his conclusions on
tho relationship of Intelligence to tho
slzo und shapu of tho head Karl Pear
son is ipioted in tho Journal of Hered
ity as making these statements about
tho Intelligence of children:
"To sum up, then, whllo no charac
ters In school children so far dealt with
show very high correlation with intelli
gence, wu may yat say that tho Intelli
gent boy is markedly conscientious, N
moderately robust, athletic and popu
lar; ho tends rather to quick than to
sullen temper. Hu is moro self con
scious and quieter than (hu dull boy;
ho has a slightly bigger head und pos
sibly lighter pigmentation than thoso
of more mediocre Intelligence. Ills hair
has n larger percentage of curlluess.
'Tho intelligent girl Is also markedly
conscientious, moderately robust, ath
letic and popular. Khe, too, tends to
quick rather than sullen temper. Kho U
less self conscious than tho dull girl
and noisier than tho girl of medlocra
Intelligence. It Is tho slow girl who 11

u slightly bigger head than tho dull
girl, and her hair Is moro likely to bo

Travelers who havo visited tho great

the entrance Is the inscription In Latin,
"I nm the door; by mo If any man en

The merchandise in our stores is bought with the idea
of value uppermost. We do not offer you an article and
advise buying it because the price is cheap.
Twelve years experience in your locality has taught us
your needs. Our stock that is moving now was bought on
a market of lower level than the spring goods are bought.
Anything you may select now is of better value than what
you will ouy when the Spring goods are all stocked.
Our advice is to supply your needs now.
