. to this date a huge appetite, hus almost
Invariably been considered as evldem-f
of a good physical condition. Many
persons will realize. after'Tvelgliltis the
doctor's remark, that their great desire
for food at certain -times Is a warning
that all Is not well with- tlujiiu 'Dr.
I'orter supports his startling statement
111 cnmnl tnt.ri.C!tln vnli.nn4.M.Jr.n 4
Tlethealtby person does not slight his
meals, It must be understood, but tWs
ample Justice to them. Yet not until
lie tastes .the food before him, says Dr.
Porter,' does he realize the need of It.
He could go about and forget his meal
times but for tho force of circum
stances. The pangs of hunger are felt
as an effect of Imperfect digestion.
Dr. .Porter gives some, valuable In
formation on the question which nnd
of what kind shall be the principal
meal morning, noon or night. In
speaking of this he said:
"As In the running of an engine, the
most Intensive consumption of fuel
must be Just prior to and In accordance
with tho amount of work to be per
formed; so, In a man, the time for
taking, and the qunntlty and quality
of the meal Ingested, or the determina
tion ol the 'principal meal,' must be In
harHionyjWlth the work to be accom
plished. 'If tho -Individual Is to begin
his dally labors between 4 and 0 In tho
morning and terminate them between 5
and 1 o'clock lu the evening It necessi
tates the taking of a good and liberal
breakfast at an early hour In the morn
ing, from a half hour to an liour before
beginning active work', especially so If
the last meal of the, day previous has
been n light one at 0 o'clock, ns Is the
common habit of this class. Habits of
this kind naturally call for the heaviest
meal, which also may bo called the
principal meal, at uoou, or near that
hour, , .
"On tbe-other hood, If tho custom-is
to rise between 0 and 8 In the morning,
nnd the largest amount of work is per
formed between 0' In tho morning nnd
tho succeeding midnight, nn entirely
different arrangement of tho meals
must be 'followed. In this class a light
breakfast Is in order ut nbout 8 in
tho morning; a stronger, more substan
tial meal nt 1 o'clock In tho afternoon
lug, because this Is more nearly In
111 tdo of the working liotirs. tt ueii
the labors are continued until midnight
and; tho- hour of resting Is after this

KNIGHTED BY FRANZt JOSEF,
C evelund Man Honored by" the Hnler
Emperor Trnnz Josef, Qf Austria
Htincnrv. has made Theodbr Kuudtz,
of Cleveland, a knight of the Order of
- rFraur. Josef, one of the "highest uon
hereditary honors It Is In the power of
any European monarch to bestow. The
decoration Is highly prized because of
Its rarity. There Is said td be but out;
other In the United States, that having
been conferred OiCDr. Uorstcr, of New
York. In 1S03. for hls.work In assisting
Hiimrarlan Immigrants wlio reacueu
New York destitute.
The Insignia of the knighthood Is a
medal or badge bearing the Imperial
crown of Austro-Huugarynnd the name
of the order, together with the Individ
ual number of tho persobou whom It
Is conferred. The decoration js about
two Inches long and nn liicli and otic-
half vhU,ts made of gold, nud Is-ot
the finest workmanship. In decorating
him with the .order of Franz Josef the
Emperor. gave to Mr. Kuudtz the right
tothe use of the prefix "sir" as a title
before his name, this being the Euro
pean Qustoni, but Mr. Kuudtz says that
he will not avail himself of this right.
He will not call himself "Sir Theodor
Some years ago, when Count Hagen
muller. Austro-IIungarlan Minister to
the Uiilted States, was lu Cleveland for
a visit he was entertained very lavishly
by Mr. Kuudtz, and it Is tbonght Mr.
Kuudtz's kulghtbood may have been so
licited by the Minister. The decoration
was .ent through the Austro-Hungnrlan
consul at Pittsburg. With it was mere
ly a formal letter announcing that the
honor had been conferred by Emperor
.Franz Josefs . .
During all the years that Mr. Kundtz
has been a pjomjncnt and successful
manufacturer In Cleveland he has done
n great deal to assist his less fortunate
fellow countrymen. He has given much
money to hospitals nnd other charitable
works. Last summer he made a busi
ness nnd pleasure trip to his native
land, and It Is thought be contributed
to some of the charities there. The dec
oration s one that Is not given to those
who seek It.
Farm Names. Slave Value.
"It Is' a wonder to me," remarked
the dairyman ns.be sold a lot of eggs
Hint came from n farm whose name Is
known all about this section for the ex
cellence of Its products, "that farmers
do not name their farms more frequent
ly and so establish a sort of trademark
for their produce. They would do It,
I nm sure, If they only knew how much
it adds to tho value of the stuff they
send to the markets. I have Scores of
customers who will buy only milk,
eggs, chickens or other produce they
want that comes from u certain farm
and Is so stamped.
'There are a score or more of gen
tlemen farmers who appreciate, this,
nud who have given fanciful ;iiaines to
their places nnd so- nt ' once ludded to
the value of their produce. It also adds
at once to the value of their property,
for tho name very quickly becomes
known, and people who nro looking to
buy country places nre willing to pay
more for one that has nn established
name and reputation. Now, Jones'
farm or Smith's farm does not mean
"nnythlug to the average buyer, but call
It 'Kdgewood,' 'Ivntihoe,' 'Lookout' or
any other fanciful nanio and it at once
obtains a market value, It never had
before and without the expenditure of
a penny. It Is a queer short-sighted
iiosh that has led farmers to overlook
this, for they arc usually shrewd
enough In other respects. If they would
name their farms and furnish good
stuff from It for a couple of years they
would find that tho value of their prop
erty hnd doubled In that period."

The months of April and .May usually
jovw tho time when the cyclone has Its
Inning In the central valleys of the
country. The records of recent years
show that at about the llrst of May the
yelouo reason Is at Its height, although
ome of the frightful storms have not
occurred until a mouth later.
Scientists have struggled with the cy
toue problem for many years, but
much of the mystery surrounding Us

if the prodigious power It exerts upon
objects In Its path. Thoy agree, how
ever, on one thing, aud that Is the name.

correct designation being tornado, but

Scientifically , the. cyclone, .In tho. stocui

Ocean, with a diameter of from 100 to
The tornado travels In much smaller
form, but In its reduced dimensions It
has all the concentrated energy of the
ocean storm. The diameter of the tor
nado Is seldom more than 100 yards and
frequently much less than that. It has
been known to travel straight aloug a
country road for more than a mile,
wrecking everything In Its path, but
not InJ.irlug the fences on either side.
The diameter of this tornado could not
have been more than SO or IK) reet, but
Its power was almost beyond belief.
But the curious freaks worked by the
cyclone of the Kansas variety command
more attention than Its tremendous
force. On one occasion the roof or au
plght-room house was lifted bodily, car
ried. 200 yards, half way Into a grove,
where It seemed Impossible that It
could have passed between the trees,
and left lying flat, but upside down; 1u
a vacant spot Just large enough to re
ceive It. Occasionally the side of a
house Is carried away and converted
Into kindling wood, while the rest of the
edifice Is quite uninjured.
In one Instance, In Iowa, half h double
house wns shattered to bits, while the
other half and the hall were quite un
touched, even the carpet on tho hall
floor remaining uusolled, and the paper
on the wall showed neither spot nor
In another, the porch of a Kansas
house was cut away as neatly as though
with an ax, a queer contract being seen
In a third case, where the house was
destroyed and the porch left standing
In Nebraska the second story of an
eight-room houso was taken off and
the first wna left, so little shock being
given to the building by tho violent re
moval of the upper half that the clocks
on the mantelpieces wero not disturbed,
and continued to tick as usual.
A still more curious freak was played
by tho wind in a Kansas dwelling. A
double house, with a ball In the middle,
stood facing tho direction from which
tho cyclcrae wns approaching. When
the storm wns seen the residents took
refuge In their cave and listened to hear
the fall of their home. A terrible crash
was beard, and they, or course, sup
posed that the house had gone. On
emerging they wero surprised to see tho
house standing ns berore, nut were al
most paralyzed with astonishment to
llnd the northeast wall of tho dining
room, which was on tho opposite side
of the house from the direction the
storm cntue, had been blown out, tho
furniture, tables, dishes and all other
contents had been carried off and crush
ed to atoms, and no other, damage had
resulted to any part of the building.
The cyclone which devastated Sher
man, Texas, stripped nearly all of tho
dead of clothlug, and from the feet of
every corpso tho shoes had been
wrenched. This Is a common trick of
cyclones, but scientists cannot fathom
It. In many Instances tho shoes disap

Sometimes these remarkable effects
nro produced without visible Injury to
the body or to the clothing that re
mains on It, n circumstance quite tin
explainable with our present knowl
edge. When the clothing Is removed
It Is generally not found, being prob
ably rent Into Indistinguishable rags,
but when It or portions of It are left
the wind treats It In tho most whim
sical manner. In Iowa, In 18S5, nil the
clothlug but the coat wns torn from
the body of a man, this garment re
