Refused to Eat Eight Courses.
A story Is told of a distinguished
diplomat from Japan who was the
guest of honor at a dinner in Wash
lngton. After the first two courses of
oysters and soup, a the waiters were
bringing in the fish, he exclaimed
"What! Can anyone possibly want
more to eat?" During the remaining
six courses he opened his mouth for
the exclusive purpose of conversation.
When his abstemiousness was com
merited upon, he said: "I am satisfied,
I feel bright and wide awake. If
were to eat as much as you do,
should fall asleep, and then I could not
make my speech. Most of the men
around this table are fat, because they
eat too much. It is a misfortune to be
so fat. I am stronger and healthier
than any fat man."
Cure to Stay Cured.

One of the most remarkable cures ever
recorded in Louisa county is that o
Mrs. Minnie Hart of this place. Mrs
Hart was in bed for eight months and
when she was able to sit up she was
all drawn up on one side and could
not walk acroes the room. Dodd'f

her cure Mis. Hart says:
"Yes, Dodd's Kidney Pills cured me
after I was in bed for eight months and
I know the cure was complete for that

been down since. In four weeks from
the time I started taking them I was
able to make my garden. Nobody can
know how thankful I am to be cured
or bow much I feel I owe .to Dodd's

Texas is neck and neck with Illinois
In the race for the largest railroad
mileage. Illinois has been in the lead
for some time, but it looks as if she
would not long hold the supremacy.
In the last authentic report Illinois is
credited with 11.503, Texas 11.4S9,
Pennsylvania 10.820, Iowa 9.SCHJ and
New York 8,182 miles. By the rate of
increase Texas, which has only four
teen miles less than Illinois, will go
to the head of the list. As indicating
her possibilities for future develop
ment It may be noted that if she had as
many miles of road as Illinois in the
ratio of area she would have a mileage
of 45,82.'?. but if no more in proportion
to population the number would be
4,210 less. Louisville Courier-JournaL
Have been suffering from Impure Blood
for many years, Having Boils and other
Eruptions. Having heard of S. S. S. I de
cided to try it, and am glad to say that it
has done me a great deal of good. I intend
to continue to use it, aa I believe it to be
the best Blood Medicine on the market.
Cleveland, Tenn. W. K. Deters.
For over fifteen years I have suffered
more or less from Impure Blood. About a
year ago I had a boil appear on my leg
below the knee, which was followed by
three more on my neck. I saw S. S. S.
advertised and decided to try it. After
taking three bottles all Boils disappeared
and i have not been troubled any since.

Newark, Ohio, May 23, 1903.
From childhood I had been bothered
with bad blood, skin eruptions and boils.
I had boils ranging from five to twenty iu
number each season. The burning ac
companying the eruption was terrible.
S. S. S. seemed to be just the medicine
needed in my case. It drove out all impu
rities and bad blood, giving me perma
nent relief from the skin eruption and
boils. This has been ten years ago, and I
have never had a return of the disease.

Considering the important part clouds play in art and poetry, their beauty
and their value as weather Indicators, it is strange that so few people under
stand the method of their formation or can distinguish between thein.. Such
a knowledge is essential to a full appreciation of landscape and sunset
A mass of air on the earth's surface, being warmed by heat radiated
from the earth, rises, bearing with it the moisture given off by the soil,
plants and water with which it has been in contact. As this warm, moist air
moves up into the thin, rare atmosphere, it expands and its temperature is
considerably lowered. The amount of vapor which cool air will sustain In
an invisible state is decidedly less than the amount which is sustained by
warm air. Therefore, when the moist air cools a part of the vapor con
denses into minute globules of water, which catch the light and are then
visible. In this form the moisture is called a cloud.
The difference in the form of the cloud depends upon the altitude it
reaches before its water vapor condenses. There are four principal kinds.
The cumulus, or heap-cloud, is large (sometimes five miles from base to
summit), rolling and lumpy. It floats about a mile from the earth. This is
the commonest summer day cloud. They are largest a little after noon, but
If they continue to grow until sunset, look out for rain.
The stratus, or sheet-cloud, forms in the region above that of the cumuli.
This is the kind so often seen when the sun sets. It shows in horizontal bars
across the western sky. It sometimes spreads over the whole sky, hiding all
the blue. The ordinary stratus is from two to four miles over us.
The highest form is the cirrus, or curl-cloud. It is light, fluffy, cotton
like and extremely light. It Is formed only above the frost line, and is made
up of floating Ice dust It is at its best in winter. The cirrus is sometimes
eight miles from the earth.
The nimbus, the low, dark rain cloud. Is the fourth and last primary
Besides these four there are an almost unlimited number of varieties and
combinations bearing such names as cirro-cumulus and cumulo-stratus.
Clouds are always changing and In motion, the heavy cumulus some
times traveling as fast as twenty-five miles an hour, and ,the cirrus even
ninety miles. This may explain why the clouds float, though they are much
heavier than air. The wind probably supports them, just as it does the
thistle down near the earth. Yet clouds are constantly evaporating and being
renewed by newly-rising moist air.
There is much to learn by looking up.

he was advanced to tne more respon

again promoted, this time to the posi

duced an innovation which marked a
decided advance step in railroading.
Up to that time, it had not been con

night; when nightfall came, freight
trains and passenger trains alike were
tied up," their journeys to be resumed
only when daylight came. Davis held
there was no good reason why they
should not be run by night as well as
by day, and proved it His. first night

Guatemala's JSfar Coffee Crop.
When the volcanic eruptions in Guat
emala last year covered the coffee tin
eas it was believed that the industry
was ruined and that Guatemala bad
received a blow from which recovery
would be slow.' Many planters aban
doned their ash covered plantations
and believed themselves ruined. But
the activity of the volcanoes was fol
lowed by heavy and. long continued
rains, which washed away a great deal
of the ashes and incorporated more of
them with the soil. The rain also
seemed to bleach the ashes and extract
from it a liquid fertilizer which proved
of great benefit to the coffee trees. The
result is a crop nearly as large again
as last year's. Hereafter when the
volcanoes of Guatemala erupt and
spout ashes the only unfortunate coffee
planters will be those whose fincas are
outside of the showers. London Globe.
