Nice Little Love Story.
A dreamer and a man of action loved
a woman. v
The dreamer said: ' "I shall write
verses in her praise. They will touch
her vanity, and she will love me tor
tut the muu of action said: ,"How
old fashioDed! 1 shall-corner the stock
market, and that will bring her."
So the dreamer wrote verses, and he
Induced a friend of his who ran a mag
azine to print them. And the man of
action cornered something or other and
beemie n billionaire.
In the meantime the girl married n
man who inherited bis money ntid
livfd happy ever after
U lit the dreamer was so proud of his
verjos that lie didn't cure,, and the man
of action was so busy that he didn't
The only one to suffer was the man

A traveler of the upper Nile thus de
scries a typical native village: "The
hd.ises are built of Nile mud, each
house accommodating a family of no

ea-lt village almost nil related to each
other, comprising sometimes several
hundreds of people.
"Their streets are littered with filth,
animals of every kind obstruct one's
path, dogs growl and snarl at the ap
pearance and intrusion of a stranger,
and women Uee, hiding their faces
In their yashmaks lest a white man
Bhould behold their features. Files In
swarms settle on the children and lay
their eggs on their eyelids, unwashed,
because they believe it to be contrary
to their religion to wash or remove the
flies from their eyes." Chicago Record
Herald. Fighter In Loadon Streets.
' Tbe reign of George II. was a great
fighting time. Every man who went
abroad knew that be might have to
fight to defend himself against footpad
or bully. Most men carried a stout
stick. When Dr. Johnson beard that a
man had threatened to horsewhip him
he ordered a thick cudgel and was easy
in bis mind. There were no police, and
therefore a man had to fight It cannot
be doubted that the martial spirit of
the country, which was extraordinary,
was greatly sustained by the practice
of fighting, which prevailed alike in all

I I sickly women be-
I tween the ages of
49 and 65, but there are
Tery few invalids over 65
and 60 years of age. The
change of life coming to
a woman near her forty
fourth year either makes
her an invalid or gives
her a new lease on life. . Those who
meet this change In ill health sel
dom live ten years afterward, while
a woman who lays aside the active
duties of womanhood in health sel
dom fails to live on in happiness,
years after she has passed 60. This

Mrs. Laura S. Webb, of Toledo,
Ohio, recognizes the change of life
as a dangerous period and she also
has faith in Wine of Cardui. She

the change of life which was
list approaching. While vis
iting with a friend I noticed
that the was taking your
Tine of Cardui, and she was
so enthusiastic about it that I
decided to, try a bottle. I ex
perienced some relief the first
month, so I kept on taking It
for three months and now I
menstruate with no pain and
I shall take it off and on now
until I have passed the climax. I do not
dread It now, as I am sure that your
Tine of Cardui will be of great benefit
at this time.'
Wine of Cardui Is the remedy to
re-inf orcc a woman against the shock
that comes with the change of life.
It re-establishes healthy functions
after years of suffering. In doing
this it has saved thousands of suf

THE TRUE FISHERMAN.
Be Enjoys Nature's Beauties and Is
Not a Mere Butcher.
The angler's art Is but a pretext, or, ,
rather, the incentive to a ramble, and
not the sole object of tbe fisherman,
unless, alas, he belongs to .that tea
common, variety, the man whose sole
object is his catch. 1 Such a man flsbe
with a worm, hides flngerllngs In tbe
depth of his basket and photographs
bis catch as a witness of his crimes.
He is' not a fisherman, but a butcher.
A yellow primrose on the river's bank
Is to him a primrose and nothing
The true fisherman loves to catch
fish, to match his wits against the
weary trout, hut as he wanders from
pool to pool the songs' of the birds
greet him rostfully. Every turn In the
stream reveals a nook In which strange
wild flowers nestle. The gentle ex
citement of the sport prevents the
scene from becoming monotonous. Ths
element of chance, the uncertainty of
the catch, add the drop of tabasco
sauce which gives zest to the day, And j
the noontide meal by the brink of tbe
stream! When did a meal have a more
delightful flavor? Delmonlco never
served a trout like unto those we have
eaten by the banks of a mountain
brook with the clear blue sky above,
the waving forest round about and
tbe murmuring stream at our feet.
The bour of contemplation comes:
afterward, with the pipe ,of piace In
our band Instead of the relinquished
rod. How far off the city seems! Are
there such tilings as corporations,
trusts, stocks, bonds, electric lights
that amaze the sight, harsh warnings
of trolley gongs, the rumble und grind
of the wheels and the brakes on die
elevated road which affright the esr!
The harshest note that breaks the still
ness here Is the Loom of tbe bittern Is
the distant marsh.
Home to camp the fisherman goes,
taking a cast In this silent pool ' in
which the trout rose "in the forenoon
to his cast, but missed" the fly, or In
that daft hole deep under the bank .
In which a vigilant eye may detect lbs '
brown sides of a trout with lazily warr- ;
lug fins mid tail, an old campaigner,
not easily caught. Dr, A. T. Brlstow

We bake bread; in China they steam
We divide the day into twenty-four '

Our calendar is based on solar time;
theirs is based on lunar time.
With us the seat of honor is on the

We haw standard weights and meas- :.
ores; their weights and measures differ ' ;
In each district,
Our children stand facing the teach- ;

their backs to the teacher.
Our watchmen quietly go their
rounds with a view to catching
thieves; theirs beat gongs and yell, to
frighten them away. ,
