WTSE MEN'S MISTAKES.
"'WE OPENING TOOL'S. '
Implements of Which Bnrarlara Ho,
er Even Get a Glimpse.
"We have tools for opening safes,"
aid the foreman of the machine room
of a safe factory, "that no burglar
could Imitate even if he got them. But
it would be one of the most difficult
things in the world for him to get even
a sight of them. The tool room is
guarded as closely as a bank vault A
watchman stays in it all night We are
ery careful about employing our men.
They must give bonds and have the
best of references. The chance of a
burglar getting into our employ for the
purpose of learning our methods Is
scarcely worth thinking about
"Very frequently we have hurry calls
for a man to open a safe where the
time clock has gone askew or where the
clerk has forgotten the combination.
You, can readily imagine that wlth a
bank or trust company it is an essen
tial thing to have the safe open before
business begins. When we send a
man out he takes i wagon load of tools,
for he must open the safe without ruin
ing the lock, nnd he does not know pre
cisely what the trouble Is. He carries
a photograph of himself with our cre
dentials on It. Nor will he open the
safe while alone. Some bank official
must remain with him, no matter how
long the Job takes. That Is for our own
protection. Some very queer alleged
robberies have been charged to men
sent out to open safes.
"To mechanics In our business it is
laughable to read that a full kit of bur
glars' toolB has been found beside a
safe. As I have said,it would require
an express wagon to carry them, and
burglars don't work that way. If they
care to take chances by blowing up a
safe with dynamite it Is another mat
ter; but those fellows nearly always
"A police officer told me that burglars
make their own tools. The big crooks
are all spotted and are afraid to go out
and buy the material for them. Some
of them send their wives and children."

Religion Training of Japanese.
Little or no importance is attached
to the religious training of Japanese
children. Whether the parents be
Buddhists or Shintoists it matters not,
for In either case the children rarely
take any pnrt In the religious life of
their parents or eiders, and Indeed
usually grow up In blissful Ignorance
aa to what it Is ull about. True, they
may occasionally be taken to the tem
ple and taught to rub their palms to
gether, clap thrice and incline their
beads toward the shrine as they toss
their offering of rln through the wood
en grating of the huge money till.
They may have some vague notion
that there Is something meritorious in
all thla, but nothing more, although
every Japunese home has a latticed
niche, or kamidana, dedicated to the
service of the household Lares and
Penates, or Dulkoku and Eblsu as they
appear in Japan.
He Htrptllea In Newfoundland,

that Newfoundland Is Just like Ireland
In that respect, and there is no record
that Newfoundland had a St Patrick

bat not a reptile of any kind snake,
toad, frog, lizard or even turtle. An
other queer thing ubout the province Is
that while some wild animals are
abundant there no one ever saw a
squirrel, porcupine, mouse or lynx any
where within Its boundaries. This Is
all the more singular because the ad

Cape Breton have all theso animals

lome of the Qneer Blunder Made

Now and then one meets with pas
sages in the works of the most cele
brated authors which display an ig
norance of things that every schoolboy
is supposed to know.
Sir Walter Scott in bis "Heart of
Midlothian" speaks of his heroine as
having "the merit of those peacemak
ers to whom it is pronounced as a
benediction that they shall inherit the
earth." Born and bred and passing
bis life in Bible reading Scotland, Sir
Walter was yet ignorant of the fact
that it was to the meek that the in
heritance of the earth was promised,
and the benediction of the peacemakers
was that "they shall be called the chil
dren of God."
Dickens in his "Tale of Two Cities"
eays "the name of the strong man of
old Scripture descended to the chief
functionary who worked the guillo
tine." One does not have to be a pro
found student of the French revolution
to know that the notorious executioner
who chopped off heads in the Place de
la Revolution was named Sanson and
The lowest pupil In the lowest class
In history in the public schools knows
that it was Balboa who discovered the
Pacific ocean, yet Keats in his im
mortal sonnet "On First Looking Into
Chapman's Homer" makes Cortes the
man who stood "silent upon a peak in
Darien" and saw the great "south sea"
stretching away before him.
The great Gibbon, who was so intol
erant of the errors of other men,
speaks in his "Roman Empire" of "the
Oxus and the Jaxartes, two rivers of
ancient renown which descend from
the mountains of India toward the
Caspian sea." Yet every school geog
raphy shows that the two rivers flow
Into the sea of Aral, and the Jaxartes
most certainly rises In no "mountains
Shakespeare wrote of "the coast of
Bohemia," and In his "Gertrude of
Wyoming" Campbell had tigers prowl
ing through the Jungles of Pennsylva
nia. Such "ignorance in high places"
cannot be excused, for, with ordinary
ease, Gibbon, Shakespeare and Camp
bell could have ascertained the facts.

There is ao old fallacy that Anglo
Saxon words are the best. The fallacy
Is based on the belief that words of
Anglo-Saxon origin are more simple
and vigorous than those derived from
Latin. In point of fact, some Anglo
Baxqn words are obscure and long, and
many of our commonest, moBt simple
words are from the Latin. The Lon
don News tells a story in point
A barrister more remarkable for the
vigor of his address to Juries than for
his learning was commenting on the
proceeding of the other party in a case
"I do not know what gloss my
learned friend is going to put upon this
matter, but I will not mince my words.
I denounce It In plain, downright Anglo-Saxon
as a nefarious transaction."
Bavlr Mention of Niagara Falla.
The first historical notices of Niagara
tails are given in Lescarbofa record of
the second voyage of Jacques Cartler,
in the year 1085. ; On the maps pub

the falls are indicated by a cross, but
no description of the wonderful cata
ract Is given, and the best geograph
ical authorities living today doubt if
the 'explorer mentioned ever saw the
falls, Brluton's work to the contrary
notwithstanding. Father Hennepin Is
believed to have written the first de
scription of the falls that was ever
penned by one who had personally vis
ited the spot.

Unless they are, good health is impossible-
Every drop of blood in the body passes through and is filtered by healthy kidneys every three minutes. Sound
kidneys strain out the impurities from the blood, diseased kidneys do not, hence you are sick. FOLEY b KIDNE Y
CURE makes the kidneys well so they will eliminate the poisons from the blood. It removes the cause of tne
many diseases resulting from disordered kidneys which have allowed your whole system to become poisoned.
Rheumatism, Bad Blood, Gout, Gravel, Dropsy, Inflammation of the Bladder, Diabetes and Bright's Disease,
and many others, are all due to disordered Kidneys. A simple test for Kidney disease is to set aside your urine
in a bottle or glass for twenty-four hours. If there is a sediment or a cloudy appearance, it indicates that your
kidneys are diseased, and unless something is done they become more and more affected until Bright s Disease
or Diabetes develops.
FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE is the only preparation which will positively cure all forms of Kidney and
Bladder troubles, and cure you permanently. It is a safe remedy and certain in results.
If You are a sufferer, take FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE at once. It will make you well.
Had Lumbago and Kidney Trouble
Edward Huss, a well known business man of Salisbury,Mo., writes:
"I wish to say for the benefit of others, that I was a sufferer from
lumbago and kidney trouble, and all the remedies I took gave me no
relief. I began to take FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE, and after the use of
three bottles I am cured."
Some Pronounced Incurable
Mr. G. A. Stillson, a merchant of Tampico, 111., writes: "FOLEY'S
KIDNEY CURE is meeting with wonderful success. It has cured
some cases here that physicians pronounced incurable. I myself am
able to testify to its merits. My face today is a living picture of health
and FOLEY'S KIDNEY CURE has made it such."

There 1b more Catarrh In this section of the
country than ail other diseases put together, and
until the last few years was supposed to be in
curable. For a great many years doctors pro
nounced It a local disease, and prescribed local
remedies, had by constantly failing to cure with
looal treatment, pronounced it incurable. Sci
ence has proven catarrh to be a constitutional
disease, and, therfore requires conititutional
treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cnre, manufactured
by F. J. Cheney Co. Toledo, Ohio, is the only
