MAN'S ARTERIES.
And Seme f the Causae That Tand
Maka Tham Harden.
"A uibd U at old aa hla arteries"
la a common saying among physicians,
which baa coma to b taken up by
their patients. lr. Herbert C. Clapp
of llohtou In tha New York Medical
Record cornea forward with an article
declaring that worry ta a common
r a une of arteriosclerosis, the harden
ing of the arteries la not Infrequently
considered aa one of the customary and
proper accompaniments of a ripe old
age socnetlmea even of middle life
it la not universally eo, and that even
at fourscore years, aa proved by
autopsies, tbe arteriea have been found
to be perfectly Bound. He cites the
case of the champion old man, Thomas
Parr of England, who died at tbe
advanced age of 152 and whose arter
ies were found by Harvey who dis
covered tbe circulation of the blood
on examination after death to be per
fectly sound
Dr Clapp says that within certain
limits tbe arteries do not harden be
cause they are old. but are old because
they are diseased. Among causes for
arteriosclerosis he gives overeating, ex
cessive muscular strain and excessive
brain work. Worry produces func
tional disturbances and undue blood
pressure. This brinirs with It arterio
sclerosis He holds that most wor
ries are Indulged In without an ade
quate reason, therefore, and cites the
following quotation: "1 am an old man
and bare bad many troubles, but most
of them never happened."

BEADS
POPPING CORN.
Why tha Haat Literally Turn tha
Grain Inaid Out.
A grain of popcorn Is filled with
tightly packed starch grains. The in
terior of tbe grain Is divided into a
large number of cells, each of which
may be likened to a tiny box, the falls
whereof are sufficiently strong to with
stand considerable pressure from with
in. Upon the application of heat the
moisture present In each little box Is
converted into steam that finally es
capes by explosion.
To obtain a satisfactory popping
there Is required a very high degree of
beat This causes the greater part of
the cells to explode simultaneously.
The grain of corn then literally turns
Inside out and Is transformed Into a
'relatively large mass of snow white
starch.
If com be old and dry It will not
pop satisfactorily. A few cells near
the center of the grain may burst,
but the general result will be unsatis
factory. At the base of the kernels,
where they are attached to the cob,
tbe cells appear to be driest, aud it
has been observed that these cells are
seldom broken in tbe popping.
Practically all tbe popcorn raised
for market in this country comes from
New England. Great quantities of it
are popped, buttered and packed for
aale all over the United States.

An Offer Declined.
Dr. Portal, the favorite medical at
tendant of Louis XVIII. of France,
was offered an unusual reward for his
services. Having cured Vestris of a
severe Illness, tbe famous dancing
master said to him: "My dear doctor,
I should never dream of offering you
money. Between artists there can be
no dealings except those of gratitude
To demonstrate mine, I will give you
a valuable bint as to your deportment
I have eften noticed that you have a
most ungraceful way of carrying your
self. I can remedy that in a few les
sons and teach you bow to enter a
sick room in such a way as to please
tbe most exacting patient We can
begin now If you like," Much to the
amazement of Vestris, Portal declined
this offer and so lost, tbe esteem of
bis illustrious patient
Top Buttonhole of a Coat
Tbe buttonhole In one's oat does
not owe Its origin to tbe once univer
sally worn Dower, but to ocr ances

right up to tbe neck. Fashion changed,
tbe coat was turned back, forming
what tbe tailor calls tbe "lapel," and
tbe buttonhole waa utilized for tbe
flower, which old portraits tell ua was
before this time tucked Into tbe waist

Plaatar Casta.
Those who have plaster casts that
they wlab to preserve may protect them
from dust by brushing them with a
preparation of white wax aud white
soap, balf a teaspoonful of each boil
ed wltb a quart of rain or other soft
water. Use when cold, and when they
are dried the casts may be wiped with
a damp cloth without Injury. To hard
en casts brush wltb a strong solution
of alum water and brush with white
wax dissolved in turpentine. Put the
cast In a warm place to dry after using
tbe latter, and It will have a look not
unlike that of old Ivory.

For this the PROBLEM OF .GOVERNMENT REGULATION

sudden change of management as usually comes but ONCE IN A
CENTURY, and the central idea in this change is the extension of
the GOVERNMENT CONTROL OVER ALL FORMg OF

The "regulative era" means that we are definitely PASSING
FROM THE OLD ORDER to a different and perhaps HIGHER

adapted, just as to the higher cot of labor, the greater expense of raw
materials and the high cost of living. The permanence of this new
