Ono boy otic of many who had
tho honor of meeting tho President
now acts as If Mr, Roosevelt's eyes
were constantly on him, says St. Nich
olas. This lad was not a small boy
when ho was presented; he was big
enough to play baseball with skill and
energy nnd on ordlnnry occasions ho
was a haughty sophomore. This boy
wanted to bco the President, but his
outward calmness was disturbed by
the Intimation from his sisters that
he would have to mako three bows as
ho approached the President nnd sny,
"Your excellency." The courage that
had stood six hours' exposure In it
heavy sen on the keel of an upturned
boat weakened before this prospect.
A benevolent friend corrected the
alarming suggestion of the sisters by
telling him that he would simply be
expected to sny, "Mr. President," to
stand until everybody was' seated and
to go when tho President should rise.
This seemed easy; still, It was evi
dent that the fearless athlete was rev
erently practicing "Mr. President" with
his Hps as ho approached tho White
House. All uneasiness disappeared,
however, when the President, catch;
lug sight of the boy stepped forward
and called him by his surname. "Sit
down!" he said, nnd then he began to
talk about a subject dear to the
lad's heart tho recent races at
Poughkeepslo. Etiquette was forgot
ten; the boy held fast to "Mr. Presi
dent," when he thought of It, In the
delight of talking with somebody who
"really knew" nil about the Ins nnd
outB of Intercollegiate races, but
sometimes ho forgot and merely Bald
Tho boy was pained for a moment
to discover that tho President could
not play baseball. To a near-sighted
man who must wear glasses n base
ball flying at large Is much worse
than a bullet The lad admitted this
and said afterward that "If Thack
eray were alive and played baseball
Instead of cricket he would have had
tho same dlfllculty." The President
showed him a very (jclentlflr Jlu-Jltsu
grip. And this was followed by an In
terchange of lore on this Interesting
Jnpanese science of physical culture,
with illustrations, in which the boy
entirely forgot his fear of the "court
presentation" nnd talked, nnd acted
with entire respect, but entire free
dom. The boy seemed to think that
American muscle was a match for
oriental Bklll, but he was plainly con
vinced thnt the President had both.
Questions of boxing and riding came
up and tho President spoke as an ex
pert and the boy listened nnd talked
as one who understood but felt his
HmltaUons. Young Theodore, who hns
this year entered Harvard, wns then
nt flchool; but every now and then his
father culled a bit from his son's ex
perlence In out-of-door sport. It was
plain that, through sympathy in these
matters, he had the same point of
view as his sons. During nil this In
tervlew tho President was as enthu
siastic on tho various subjects dis
cussed aa the boy and ho seemed to
enjoy It as much ns his boy visitor
Tho talk drew out of the President
his knowledge of the games that boys
"When It comes to boxing or rid
ing," ho snld, with conviction, "I
think that my boys and I can hold
our own." And several times tlie
"we" was repeated In a way which
showed that Mr. Roosevelt and his
sons were to be considered n happy
family of boys thoroughly In accord.
It Is not convenient to take his large
"boy family" on his . western and
southern benr hunts, but the Presi
dent does the next best thing. Every
summer ho goes "Into camp" with his
boys n few miles from his summer

Everybody knows that of late years
natural forces have been wonderfully
subjected to man's need. We are
dazzled by the spectacular achieve
ments In steam and electricity, but are
likely to forget the less noiey but no
less marvelous conquest of animal and
plant life. Horses are swifter, cattle
heavier, cows give more milk and sheep
have finer fleeces than in days gone by.
In plants the transformation is even
more marked." People now living can
remember when tho number of edible
fruits and vegetables was far lees than
at present and even those that could be
grown were vastly inferior to what we
now have. For example, our parentB
knew nothing of the tomato, except as
a curious ornament in the garden.
Sweet corn was hardly better than the
commonest field sorts. All oranges had
seeds. Celery was little known and
poor in quality. In theflower bed tbe
magnificent pansy has replaced the in
significant heart's ease from which ic
was developed, and tbe sweet pea in all
its dainty splendor traces its origin to
the common garden vegetable.
This progress has been made in spite
of the great tendency manifested in all
plants and animals to go back to the
original type. It is indeed a battle to
keep strains pure and up to the stand
ard they have already attained, let
alone any improvement. The practical
results are accomplished by men operat
ing largely for love of tbe work, like
Luther Burbank, in California, and
Eckford in England, as well as by the
great seed merchants, D. M. Ferry &
Co., of Detroit, Mich., wbo are not
only eternally vigilant to hold what
ground has been gained, but have a
corps of trained specialists, backed by
ample means, to conduct new experi

Catarrh is usually regarded as nothing more serious than a bad cold or
Blight inflammation of the inner skin and tissues of the head and throat,
when it is, in fact, not only a vexatious and troublesome disease, but a com
plicated and dangerous one. It is true that Catarrh usually begins with a
cold in the head, but when the poisons, which are thrown off through the
secretions, find their way into the blood, it becomes a constitutional trouble
that affects all parts of the body. It has more annoying aud disgusting symp
toms than any other disease. There is a sickening and offensive discharge
from the nostrils, a constant buzzing noise in the ears, headaches and pains
In the eyes are frequent, while filthy, tenacious matter drops back into the
throat requiring continual hawking and spitting, and in certain stages of the
disease the breath has an odor that is very offensive. Catarrh is worse in
Winter, because the cold weather closes the pores and glands, and the pois
ons and unhealthy vapors which should pass off that way are thrown back
on the tender linings and tissues, causing the inflammation which starts
the unhealthy secretions to be ab- , ......

Borbed by the blood. When the blood
becomes diseased with this catarrhal
matter all kinds of complications may
be looked for. As the blood circu
lates through the body the foul mat
ter finds its way into the stomach,
ruining the digestion and producing
chronic Dyspepsia, or Catarrh of the
stomach. It also affects the Kidneys,
Bladder and other members of the body, while the general health is weak
ened, appetite lost and the patient feels despondent and half sick all the time.
But worst of all, if the trouble is not checked the lungs become diseased from
the constant passage of poisoned blood through them, and Catarrh terminates
in Consumption, the most fatal of all diseases. You cannot get rid of Ca
tarrh by treating it with sprays, washes, inhalations, etc., because they only
reach the membranes nnd tissues,, while the real cause of the trouble is in the
blood. These relieve the annoying symptoms for a time, but the poison is
all the while getting a stronger hold on the system and when they are left
off will manifest itself in worse form than before. S. S. S. is the createst of
all blood purifiers, and when it has cleansed the blood, this mire, rich stream
circulates through the body, carrying healthful properties to the diseased
parts. Then the Inflamed membranes and tissues begin to heal, the dis
charges cease, the general condition ol .,
the system is strengthened, everyone
of the annoying and disgusting syinp
, toms pass away, nd the patient is left
In perfect health. S. S. S. is the best
remedy for Catarrh. It goes right into
the blood and removes all effete matter
and catarrhal poison and cures the dis
ease permanently, and at the same time builds up the entire system by its fin
tonic effect. S. S. S. is a purely vegetable remedy non-injurious to the ay,
tern and a certain, reliable cure for Catarrh. Catarrh sufferers will find oar
