Booker Washington says that during

time that the New York Goldsmiths'

the pianist made his way to the cloak

at the fair-haired Pole, and at last, as
he dashed his hands through the water,
said: "You're very like Paderewski;
do you know him?" 'I am Paderew

"What!" whooped the American, and,
dashing at him, shook both his hands
without waiting for the ceremony of
wiping his own. Before there was any
time for Paderewski to escape the man
from the goldsmiths' dinner rushed to
the door, and, calling to the chiefs of
his party, yelled: "I say, Brown, Jones,

IT IS SOMETIMES HARD FOR
HER TO BE PLEASANT.
A Clerk in a Bf inneapolla Dry Gooda Store
.; Tells How She Became Able to Per-
form Her Duties Easily.
! From the Mirmeetpolit Journal,
Have you ever stopped to think that
the position - of a saleswoman in a
large dry goods store is a particularly
trying one? Working long hours, be
ing compelled to stand most of the
time, and being -. expected to look
pleasant regardless of suffering which
she may be enduring, is it any wonder
-that weak, nervous women find it im
possible to follow - this occupation?
Everyone will be interested in the ex
perience of Miss .Nellie M. Tomlinson
of 3118 Minnehaha avenue,' Minne
apolis, Minn., who is a clerk in one
of the large dry goods stores of that
city. She says: 7
"When I was eight years of age
had the scarlet lever and it lelt me
with weak kidneys and a complication
of diseases. I was nervous and finallv
became so bad that I left school and
did not go for an entire term. I had
headache all the time and was too ir
ritable to talk with any one. '. The
least excitemnt seemed to make my
heart flutter; and a fainting spell
would follow.: At tianes 1 became so
dizzy that I would have to sit down
until the feeling passed away. : My
blood seemed to have turned to water
and I had no color - whatever ."in my
face. 1 was a mere skeleton and had
to lie down several times during the
day. I had one of the best physicians
in the city but he did not help me.
: "My parents read about Dr. Wil
liams fink fills lor rale feople in
one of our city papers and thought it
would be wise for me to give them a
trial. I began to get better when
had taken the. first' box and by the
time I had used two and a half boxes
I was cured. : I can perform with ease
my duties as clerk, in a dry goods
store. -1 was never so well as I ; am
today and it is all due to Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills for Pale People."

Porto Rico is only a thirteenth the
size of Cuba in. area, but it has more
than half as many inhabitants. ' It is
the most densely populated of all the
West Indian islands, and a larger
proportion of this population is white
than is found in any of the other
islands in its part of the world.
There is a higher grade of intelli
gence among the Porto Kicans than
among the Cubans.
The Sudanese natives eagrely buy
clothes, cotton goods, 6ugar, per
fumes, tea, nails, chains, wire, leath
er, false jewelry and iron trinkets of
Geneva. Great Britain furnishes the
cotton gooda, but Germany, Austria
and Italy have almost the monopoly
of the other articles. Germany does
a huge trade in perfumes. A single
caravan started off recently with 0,

for the natives.
