As curb, then, there must be some

Trumpets were carried by tho Per

In Its many varieties tho bugle was

Srlcctinq and Managing Men.
ANY men mtitakeuly think Uiat because they
work hard end try hard thry must eventually
su.Tecd to aome extent. This does not follow.
Somo men carry on great enterprise with little
npparent effort. Tholr success Is due to skill
In selecting cfnclent executive hoada. Many a
business man breaks down trying to nipple-
inent the work of Incompetent heida of departmenta almply
heeuuae he does not know how to choose the right men. A
man of commanding ability does not worry hiniieir over an
talla. lie makes out tils program nnd then aelrcta men
who can carry It out to Uie letter. Indeed. Is Is a sign of
noakneas for the head of a concern to bothor about lltUs
details. It showa that ho lacks the Insight, tho buslnosa
akigsclty. the ability to aelect and to manage men who can
do things elllcleutly.
It Is a great art to duplicate one's aelf In another nnd
multiply one's self many times by selecting those who are
vastly superior to ourselves, but who did not happen to
have hid our opportunity to do the thing Uicmsolvea.

In Chicago are corbiln boulevards
set apart for tho uio of pleaauro ve

appliances which npponr to be uoed for
toll or profit are atrlctly excluded. At
rhs Intersection of two such driveways
ono aunny nrternoon stood a dapper
little park policeman In a new spring
uniform. Ho twirled a slender switch
Idly In his white-gloved hands, and
appeared to bo making up by an as
sumption or Importance all that he
lacked In size.
Suddenly, as If he had bobbed up
out of Uin ground, appeared a glganUe
laborer trundling n plobelan wb eel

none tho less, which had been uiod

and tapped the workman easily with
"Huro, now, my man." he said.
"None of thit, yoa know. Only plena

You'll have to go down to Uio next

pedigree can be easily traced down to

and peculiar significance, which Is soon
learned and, to those, accustomed to
tho sound of the bugle, as readily un
derstood as any spoken language.
In tho "skirmish" or extended order
drills on shore no commands by word
of mouth nre necessary, but a trum

tho officer (who designates tho desired
maneuver), voices the warning for Its
execution on his bugle. Tho last note

At our military posts the frequently
recurring rouUno calls servo to Indicate
tho hour of tho day for tho officers nnd
their families, who regulate their
clocks by them and who rarely need
to consult their timepieces when with
In sound of tho bugle. They rcgulnto
their engagements to a nicety by these
routine garrison calls, which are as
constant and unchangeable as the sun
In Its course. Army babies learn to
hum them when they are only big
enough to toddlo nnd lisp, and army
mothers and housekeepers regulate
their household duties by tho hours
which they mark. Such remarks as
"First call for 'retreat' and dinner is
notsorved,"or " Taps' already and not
yet in bed," aro not Infrequently heard
among army people, to whom this
hourly monitor soon becomos a fa

tells them when to sleep, when to wake
and when to go to church. It re
minds them that It Is time for lunch,
time for dinner nnd time to prepare ror

morning till night Its clarion note
"sends the wild echoes flying" nnd be

Among thoso calls most often heard
and which rarely or never vary aro
"first call," "reveille," "parndo and
gunrd mounting," "assembly of guard
details," "sick call," "drill," "fatigue,"
"canteen," "mess" calls, "retreat,"
"tatoo," "quarters" and "taps." All
these ore equally familiar to the garri
son dwellers, whether In barren ks or
"olllcers row," nnd to ninny ot Ihem
rhyming words have been so cleverly
fitted by the soldiers themselves that
the very notes seem to speak the mean

For the hoisting ot Uio flag at 8
o'clock every morning, and when It Is
hauled down nt sunset, "colors," as it
Is ailed, the bugles sound off the sa
lute "to the colors," and the "retreat"
or "trooping of tho color."

ceremony it represents n martial

FOLLIES IN MEN'S DRE88.
Mate Attire Falls in Even Distribution
of Protective Warmth,
That a dress reform for men from a
practical and hygienic point of view Is
badly needed there Is no doubt What
can be more ridiculous than cutUng
the front of the vest and coat away
and thus expose chest, lungs, throat,
etc., to the Inclemency of the weather,
giving rise to serious Illness? What
sense Is thero In constructing the back
of a vest with a mere, thin lining? Do
tailors Imagine that the spine requires
less protection than nny other part of
the body. What practical use Is there
in wearing collars high enough to out
shade the old-fashioned "father-murders,"
collars that prevent the free?
movement of head and neck, and tight
enough to seriously Interfere with tho
proper function of several organs?
It Is Ignorance, pure and simple, and
It la one of the physician's duties to
enlighten the public on Uio necessity of
considering their health before fash
Ion, Ignorance, and folly. Wherein tha
male attire falls Is the even distribu
tion of protective warmth. One part
of the body should be as warm as tho
other. But not enough that the pres
ent style of dress makes this an Im
possibility, to flatter man's vanity (pre
sumably), tailors have acquired a hab
it of padding Uie coats "to Improve tha
figure," and thereby Introduce another
element of unequal distribution of pro
tection. As a proof of how llttlo men caro
about this "Improvement," it may
sarely be stated that nine men out of
ten do not know where their coats are
padded, or that they are padded at all.
and then they wonder why In a biting
wind they should feel cold In one
shoulder and not In the other. If phy

Eggs an a Food.
Would It not be wise to substitute
more eggs for meat in our dally diet?
About one-third of nn egg Is solid
nutriment. This Is more than can be
said ot meat There are no bones, no
tough pieces that have to bo laid aside.
A good egg Is made up of 10 parts
shell, 00 parts white and 30 parts
The white of an egg contains GO per
cent water and tho yolk 62 per cent.
Practically an egg Is animal food, and
yet there Is none ot the disagreeable
work of tho butcher necessary to ob

nnd many of these men nre 80 and
00 years old and havo been remark
ably freo from sickness.
Kggs aro best when cooked four
minutes. This takes away tho animal
tasto which Is offeuslvo to some, but
docs not harden tho wblto and yolk
so ns to make them difficult of diges

bread aud maBtlcntcd very finely.
An egg spread on, toast Is fit for a
king If kiugs deservo better food
than anybody else. Fried eggs aro
much less wholesome than boiled ones.
An egg dropped Into hot water Is not
only n clean and wholesome, but a de
licious morsel. Most peoplo spoil tha

beneficial to those who uso their
