In Theory the Number IS la m Bette
Unit Tku Ia 10.
Herbert Spencer was ever opposed to
the metric system. He was no such fool
as to call the present British reckon
ing in pounds, shillings and pence sat
isfactory. His point waifthat the num
ber 12 was a better unit than 10.
Twelve is twice divisible where 10 is
only once divisible. One-quarter of 10
is 2Yi, not an integral number. There
are other reasons, based upon the ob
served workings of the human mind,
all tending to show that to reckon in
dozens is more natural than to reckon
in tens as soon as man grows beyond
the finger counting stage.
In scientific duodeclmalism new char
acters would have to be designed for
10 and 11, while 12 itself would be writ
ten 10. The number now called 144
would be written as 100, and 1,728
would be 1,000. The present number
100 would be 84. In .tne course of a
hundred years or so, wbon people had
got used to it, the duodecimal system
would be Just as convenient as the dec
imal. Twelve Inches would make a foot,
twelve feet a rod, and so on.'
In theory duodeclmalism is sound.

Presidential receptions at the Whits
House nowadays are vastly different
from those given by the Father of His
Country when be waa at the head of
the government. Philadelphia was then
the scene. The president rented a house
at Sixth and Market streets for 3
year and dressed himself much more
elaborately than he had for similar oq-
castons In New York.
On the occasion of a presidential re
ception a chosen few were admitted
and formed a circle around the recep
tkra room.- Then the president made
the round, favoring each with a formal
bow and a few words. Then he return
ed to bis position before the fireplace.

Letter From Dr. E.S. Bollinger.
Oregon City, Ore., Jane 1, 1903.
Editor Courier : Some weeks ago an
article ascribed to Bishop Hall of Ver
mont appeared in your paper, warning
your readers against the perils of local
option. After reading the same my
curioBity was aroused to know more of
Bishop Hall and the situation of the
liquor problem in Vermont. Conse
quently I wrote to one of the leading
clergymen of Burlington, the Bishop's
resident city, enclosing the clipping
from the "Courier."
From the reply I have learned that
Bishop Hall is a genuine Bishop of the
Protestant Episcopal Church, and that
be expressed, in a general way, the
prevailing sentiment of Vermont, for
the state voted in a referendum vote In
February, 1903, with a smalt majority, '
to substitute a local option law for the
prohibition law. You will notice that
the Bishop's sentiments were expressed
in favor of local option. And now the
amuaing part of it all ia that a gun that
waa reverbrating la favor of local option
in the valleya of the Green mountains is
made to reverbrate among the hills of
Clackamas county and the state of Ore
gon against local option. How things
do change In traveling acroas the con
Furtheimore, I have learned that a
large number ot the voters of Vermont
are French Canadians, and that it is not
believed that Bishop Hall voiced the
sentiments of the Intelligent American
stock on the issue between prohibition
and local option. My informant also
says of the situation In Burlington, the
largest city ot the state, now having
saloons Junder local option, "Local
finances have altered for the worse, the
trade has been hurt. Men protected
from temptatiou before hnve fallen, and
people arrow callous to a grave, social
and moral , and economio evil.". ,
Very Respectfully, .
E. 8. Bollinqir.
Ont of Tune.
A piano tuner employed by a city
firm was sent to a certain suburb to
tune a piano. lie found the instrument
la good condition and not In the least
need of attention.
A few days later the firm received a
letter from the owner of the piano, a
lady of musical Intention, stating that
the piano had not been properly tuned.
It was no better than before.
After receiving a reprimand from his
employer the hapless tuner made an
other trip to the suburbs and again
tested every note, only to find, as be
fore, no fault with the instrument
This time be told the lady so.
"Yes," she said, "it does seem all
right, doesn't it, when you play on it
but as soon as I begin to sing It gets
all out of tune again."

bard, Temple, Texas, writes, Haroh 22,
1902 : "I have used Herbine for the past

A CONTINUAL STRAIN.
Many men and women are constantly
subjected to what they commonly term
"a continual strain" Decause 01 some ,
financial or family trouble. It wears
and distresses them both mentally and
physically, affecting their nerves ' badly
and bringing on liver and kidney' ali
ments, with the attendant evila of con
stipation, loss of appetite, sleeplessness,
low vitality and despondency. They
cannot, aa a rule, get rid of this "contin
ual strain," but they can remedy its
health-destroying effects by taking fre
quent doses of Green's August Flower.
It tones up the liver, stimulates the kid
neys, insures healthy bodily funotions,
gives vim and spirit to one's whole being
and eventually dispels the physical or
mental distress caused by that "con.
tinual strain." Trial bottle of August
Flower, 26 cents: regular size, 76 cents.
