Eczema, Tetter, Psoriasis, Saw Rheum, Acne and a great many other
diseases of like character are classed skin diseases, when they could just as
properly be called blood diseases, for they undoubtedly originate in the blood, like
Cancer, Catarrh, Scrofula, Rheumatism, Contagious Blood Poison, etc ; the only
real difference being in the intensity and nature of the poison. The more serious
diseases, Cancer, Catarrh, etc., are caused by some specific poison or virus, which
is either inherited or in other ways gets into the blood and attacks certain vital
organs or appears in the form of terrible sores and ulcers, while the milder and
less dangerous skin diseases are caused by blood humors or an over acid condition
of that fluid. These acid poisons, as they ooze out through the pores of the skin
cause great irritation, with intense itching and burning. 'The eruption may be oi
a pustular kind, with excessive discharge of thick, gummy fluid, or the skin may
be hot, dry and feverish, swollen and fissured. Skin diseases, whether they appeal

;have due attention was followed, after
;a decent interval, by a dignified, reply

pressed their regret at not being able
to carry out Mr. Corbett's suggestion,
and . explained that it would be con
trary to precedent to name a first-class

When the Transvaal war was at its
height, Paul Krueger sent a commis

were any more men left there. , The

say that there were four million men

town," that there was no excitement,
and that men were begging to be sent
to fight the . Boers. Krueger wired
back, "Go north.": The commissioner
found himself in Newcastle eventual

Colonel Oslo was the present King of
Italy's "governor" for very many
years, when, as Prince of Naples, his
charge was a delicate lad. Colonel
Oslo's strict regime has been very se
verely criticised, but that the King re
members him with respect, if not af
fection, is proved by his having con
ferred the hereditary title of count
upon him on the occasion of the birth
of the Princess Yolanda. One day a re
quest came from a well-known person
age for the young prince's autograph,
to be added to a collection containing
that of his grandfather and his father.
The prince was about to comply, when
the Colonel said, sharply: "Certainly
not; what value has the signature of
an insignificant boy who does not even
know how to write properly." For some
act of disobedience a little later, the
prince was brought before his "gover
nor," who exclaimed:'. "If I were the
king I would cut off your head.". "And
I will cut off yours when I am king,"
defiantly -replied the lad." His punish
ment is unrecorded, but, instead of
cutting off his tyrant's head when that
day came, he has ennobled him.
ROSES NOT MODERN.
Peiisrree Dates 'Back for Five
Roses are none the less beautiful be
cause they are modern flowers; "mod
ern," that is, as the history of flowers
goes. If we Include among the family,
after the manner of eminent botanists,
the plums, we find a record of one of
that clan in : the middle cretaceous
Amboy clays of New Jersey. And a
hawthorn, which is certainly a rose,
has written Its signature In the upper
crataceons rocks of Greenland. Roses,
therefore, can only boast of a pedigree
which dates back some fdnr or five mil
lions of years. -.That time is short, con
sidering the aeons during which plants
have flourished on the earth; but the
stock sprung from the primeval ances
tor has succeeded mightily in the tem
perate regions of the world, for there
are at least some sixty-five genera and
the species known run: into the hun
dreds. Nevertheless, we cannot say
that the roses have ever aimed at being
a blue-blooded race. Content with the
"via media" of life, they have kept to
the pink,- red and purple. Indeed, of
that last color I know but one ambitious
plant among them. It is the purple
flowering raspberry growing in the din
gle yonder under the cliff. So you will
never get a blue rose, for man, with
all his craft, can only lead flowers up
and down Um gamut of color that na-
tore has Impressed upon them. There
was recently some talk of a blue rose
being produced, but the talk has sub
sided and no more has been heard of
the wonder. The "red, red rose" may
be modified to the richest purplish crim
son, nay, even to the depth of the dark
eat snadows on a royal crimson rose,
but a permanently blue rose is as
mythical as Dumas' "black tulip."
SECURING A LOWER BERTH.
Tricks Played by Travelers to Get the
Coveted eUeeplnsr Place.
Those who travel a good deal and are
compelled to make use of night appre
ciate the value of a lower berth in a
sleeper. All kinds of tricks are re
sorted to to secure one and the agent
must keep his eyes wide open if be
would escape several kinds of trouble.
One of Chicago's veteran passenger
men the other day told of a practice
that was common before it was de
cided not to show tbe diagrams of the
cars to purchasers.
A customer would come Into the
office," said he, "and ask to be shown
the diagrams of the various sleepers,
In looking them over he would notice
that John Smith bad a lower reserved
until 4 o'clock in tbe afternoon, as he
was not certain that he would be able
to take the train that day. After get
ting the name well fixed in his mind
the tricky customer would purchase a
ticket and go back to his office. About
2 o'clock he would send a messenger
boy to the agency with a notice that
John Smith had decided not to take
the berth he had conditionally reserv
ed, whereupon it would be turned over
to the messenger. When John Smith
called at 4 o'clock the diagram showed
that his lower berth was gone. It
would not be proper to quote all that
John Smith would say at such times.
To save ourselves from these embar
rassments and to protect our custom
ers, we recently decided to treat our
diagrams as confidential."
Teacher's Involuntary Lesson.
"The girls treated principal and
teachers with an exaggerated respect
that they most certainly showed to no
other mortal In the world," writes
Mary Louise Graham of "My Boarding
School for Girls," in the Ladies' Home
Journal. "They ". could not grasp the
idea that they could talk to me as they
would to any woman of my age at their
homes. I don't quite know that I ought
to tell what was the opening wedge,
the beginning of the new order of
things. I have never regretted it in
spite of the fact that it was rather
shocking, and that I was lame for days
afterward. We were all assembled in
the schoolroom for prayers. I sat down
inadvertently on an optical delusion of
a chair, and as I reached the floor
exclaimed- involuntarily at the top of
my lungs: 'The devil r - I wish to re
mark parenthetically that I am not In
the habit of swearing, that I think it a
most unladylike custom, and I would
advise .my girls against it if I ever
dared approach the subject. In this in
stance my swearing was probably a
case of atavism, my grandfather being
a most ungodly, old specimen of a Puri
tan. But, to return to that morning in
the schoolroom, there was a silence
which lasted about two seconds; then
one girl giggled. Well, it ended with
two cases of hysterics, and we didn't
have any prayers that morning. But
the episode proved that I was human,
and so it was the beginning of better
things.! . -
An amusing trait in human nature is
the mutual contempt with which na
tions regard each other. It is a trait
which can be traced back as far as his
tory extends. The Greeks called-the
outside world barbarians; the Romans
scoffed at the Greeks and the Egyptians
regarded other people as no better than
In our days the contempt we exhibit
for Oriental nations is mild compared
with their contempt for us. The Turks
are but little behind the Chinese in this
respect, their ordinary designation of a
Christian being a "dog.".
When the first Dutch ambassador was
sent to the Porte, be visited the Sultan,
'What does the dog want?" asked the
This was translated in "a speech full
of ornate Oriental compliments, and the
ambassador replied in the same strain.
"Let the dog feed," answered the
Sultan; "and when the dog Is fed, kick
the dog out." - .
The Ambassador was delighted with
the Sultan's compliments. The Sultan
felt that he had held his own and the
treaty was signed next day. ;
t. An anecdote Is told of an Englishman,
traveling through the interior of Cali
fornia in company with a resident of
this State, that is characteristic of the
racial difference in mental processes.
The Englishman was deeply interested
in everything he saw, and asked many
questions. Espying a bush with bright
red leaves by the roadside, he inquired
what it was. '
"Poison oak," was the brief reply.
"Bless me," said the Englishman,
"but is it really poisonous?"
"Well, a man had better not wallow
in it," replied the Calif omian. ; The En
glishman was silent for an unusual
length ; of time, evidently in deep
thought Then he broke out: -
- "But, I say, you know, why should

its a higher sphere of thought, into
which other men rise with labor and
difficulty. He has but to open his eyes
to see things in a true light and in
large relations while they must make ,
painful corrections and keep a vigilant
eye on many sources of error.
He is a great man who is what he is
from nature and who never reminds
us of others. Emerson,

THE TRAINED NURSE
An Occupation Which Attracts
- Many Refined Girls.
Many girls of education and refine
ment are turning to the profession of
trained nurse as a means of liveli
hood. It is a serious occupatiion
and a responsible one, tor tbe word
of an experienced nurse carries
great weight in matters relating to
her profession. It is this fact that
prompted n interesting interview
with Miss Kathryn Nash, of North
and Plattsburg avenues, Burlington,
Vt., published in the News of that
city. To a reporter she said:
"I had been caring for a patient
steadily for nine months without
rest and was run down and tired.
I had very little appetite and some
times I would skip one or two meals
and not feel it at all. While visit
ing in Boston an abcess formed back
of my ear. I had no strength, and
although I was always drowsy sleep
did not seem to refresh me. After
I came home I had seven abcesses on
my back near the waist line and was
unable to sit up much for three or
four months. The doctors who
treated me said I had blood-poisoning
from which I would never recover." .
"That must have been very dis
couraging," said the reporter.
"It was. It took all the ambition
out of me for awhile. But one day,
when I was feeling particularly des
pondent, a friend advised me to try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People. She was taking them with
benefit and thought they might also
help me. 1 bought some at once and
before I had used one box of the pills
I found I was gaining strength. My
appetite and digestion improved and
I felt rested after sleeping, instead of
being tired as I was formerly. -1 soon
became entirely well and able to re
sume my duties."
"Then you believe the Pink Pills
cured you?" - - -
-. VI am certain they did, and I in
tend to keep Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pale People by me all the time,
so that I can take them if needed. I
recommend them to my patients as
well as to every one who is suffering
from any complaint brought on by
derangement of the blood or nerves."

By Using "Anchor Clamps" You Can Make
Your Fences as Good as New.
Every time a man goes out in the
morning and looks around his place
he thinks of his fences. .Are they in
good condition? Are . they what is
needed? Will they last? These
questions he asks himself, and . many
times he finds himself in sore straits
as to what to do to provide himself
with economical and durable fences.
The matter of fences is the largest
and most important item of necessary
expense to the landholder.
There are thousands of miles of
old barbed wire fence in the north
west. The wire is fairly good in
them half as good as if it were new.
And yet because ' the wires have
sagged and some of them have become
loosened from the posts, the fence is
nearly worthless. It is when the
wires are loose and wabbly in a barbed
wire fence that damage is done .to
Have you ever noticed a , fence in
A few upright stays and some
"Anchor Clamps" will repair an old
barbed wire or smooth wire fence and
make, it as good as new. It makes
the fence as rigid and firm as when
new and will make it last for years.
Now is the -time to save money.
Wire is high, excessively high, and
an entirely new fence is an expensive
affair if you get the best. The best
is one composed of all large and
strong wires which cost more at first
but will last forever. You can get
along without buying a new fence for
awhile by repairing thVoId one. The
"Anchor Clamp" is the only positive
fence lock on the market- It pre
vents sagging ; it prevents loose wires ;
it can be used on any kind of wire; it
is simple, can be applied by any one,
and it is cheap. It will pay you to
send for free sample and full informa
tion to the Portland Anchor Fence
