Octo ber 17 was the day choBen for this ceremony, and this Is thirty-nine years after the beginning of the building. This ante is the fete-day of Marie Marguerite, who heard voices com manding her to build a church on the top of Montmartre. Louis XVI formed In prison the pious Intention to carry out the behests of the voices, but the scaffold robbed him of the chance, Napoleon bad a more secular Idea and proposed building there a temple where each successive peace might be proclaimed, but he never ceased warring, says a writer In the Literary Digest. It was the events of 1870-71 that di rected the Catholio mind to the proj ect and caused Its consideration by the national assembly. Under a Paris date the London Times prints the following: "Pious people at Poitiers wished to Invoke the protection of God by erect ing a temple to his worship in Paris. Momentarily allowed to lapse, the Idea was taken up by Catholics in Paris. The difficulty was to establish com munication with the outside world, for the city was Invested. Balloons were tried, the pigeon-post, and even the bribery of secret agents; but all failed, and It was not until the Commune had added Its horrors to the war that the enterprise took practical shape. "The war minister wanted the site for a fort; but, better Inspired, Mgr. Oulbert, the cardinal-archbishop of Paris, cried: 'Your fort will do no good and may be turned against you. Iletter build my citadel than yourB ' Whether or not he was moved by the argument, the minister gave up his project, and, on July 23, 1873, the na tional assembly authorized the pur chase of land for the church and even permitted the cardinal to proceed by expropriation. The large majority which supported the bill shows how feeling In parliament has since changed on questions of church and state. Byzantine Architecture. "Two years later the first stone was hild with Impressive pomp and In the presence of 12,000 persons gathered from all partB of Fiance. AlmoBt ln vitably the plan of the architect, which prescribed a Byzantine church, was severely criticized; but It ulti mately triumphed. The public saw the folly of attempting to rival, the Oothlo glories of the thirteenth cen tury by adding Montmartre to the splendid series of Chartres, of Amiens, of Rouen, and Notre Dame. "Slowly the domes and campanile and the cluster of Bide chapels arose on the Mount of Martyrs near, In deed, to the spot where, according to the legend, St. Denla was decnpltnted and carried his head under his arm as If It had been a crown. Centuries after temples to Mercury and Mars had disappeared, a deaf and almost blind abbess, with the ladles of her order, was hurried to the guillotine on the 'tumbrels of tho convention. Mount of Martyrs It was also for two genurnls shot by Communards while M. Clemenceau was mayor of Mont martre. The people had dragged guns, for the second time In the history of Paris, up the steep slopes of the hill the first was on the morrow of the taking of the Bastlle, when the mob feamd vengeance from the Royalists and the army at Saint Denis and the two officers had gone to parley In tho name of the government In their excitement, the Montmartols slew the emissaries, without the knowledge and In the absence of their youthful mayor. "On pillars within the sanctuary ap pear the arms of towns of France which have contributed to the build ing fund. Each stone may be said to bear the name of some community a town or village or of an individual Catholic. Altars to St. Patrick and to 8t John the Baptist mark the offer ings of Ireland and Canada. Deputies, working men, Btudents, and even schoolboys have their part In th erection of this striking and majestic monument to the Catholic spirit of France." Only now after all these years, "la the fair fabric complete enough to be ready for consecration:" Place of Pilgrimage. "The great bronze doors have late ly been put In; the paving Is scarcely finished, and some of the altars, be speiklng the devotion of different parts of France, are still unbuilt. In Its present state the huge white build' Ing, under its Imposing dome, has cost 1,600,000. This Is precisely the sum which Napoleon proposed to spend on his temple of peace. It has been the aim of those who have founded the church to address themselves to all classes of society, and the same spirit prevails today In the great Sunday services, at which from 1,600 to 2,000 men are present In the nave. These worshipers are drawn from every sec tion of the community; academicians and officers of the army and navy sit side by side with artlzans, small shop keepers, and the very poor. The Church of the Sacred Heart has no parish attached to it; it Is a place of pilgrimage, and scarcely a day passes without some band of pilgrims climb ing the sides of the mount. In the evening, lights glimmer from the sum mit of the rock upon which Is perched this symbol of 'Gallia poenitens et devota.' " FEASTS DEAR TO MEMORY Creek Chief Recalls Festivities That Were of Moment In the Days of Hit Youth. Here' are the good old days as re lated by Jake Simmons, a fullblood Creek Indian, former chief, council man and lawmaker of his tribe. He referred to the days when palefaces were scarce In old Indian territory, when the Creeks held sway In Musko gee and Okmulgee counties. Mr. Sim mons marketed a bunch of cattle In Kansas City the other day from his 1,800-acre farm, 900 acres of which are under cultivation. His oats crop this year averaged 60 bushels to the acre. But It was not of crops he wanted to talk. It was the "Feast of Roast ing Ears" that took the Indian's mind back to the old days. "Just about this time of the year," said Mr. Simmons, according to the Kansas City Star, "our tribe gathered for the feast from the new corn. The preliminaries were to take large doseB of medicine so our eating capacity would be enlarged. Then followed roasted, baked, dried and salted corn, baked with young venison, prairie chickens and young turkey, togethei with fish and young roast pig. The feast Insted as long as appetite and disposition to hang around remained, apd then each one drifted back to his own tepee. "The big cattle trails from Texas northeast went through our country and we traded with the cowmen. Each year In October we held our councils in Okmulgee. There our laws were made and tribal business transacted. Our law for theft was 50 lashes fot the first offense, 150 lashes for the second offense and death by shooting for the third act. Our tribe laws were more strictly obeyed then than oui state laws are now. "But the old days have passed," continued Mr. Simmons, "and we are now on a progressive agricultural basis. We raise and fatten cattle and hogs, live In houses like the paleface; wire fences hedge us In; deer, turkeys and other game are getting scarce When we eat the new corn It Is with butter and salt, and from a regula Hon table, but I always remember the open, the shade of the trees, the call of the turkey, the campflre and I fee! like taking my share and eating ) out under the trees." Not Reduced, Anyway, "Here Is your account I Just rat over It," said the storekeeper. "Humph," said the slow customer, looking curiously at It, "I can't see that you mangled It much by running OTtr It," VARIOUS FINE JELLIES 60MI OLD FAVORITES AND BOMB THAT ARB NBW, Several Combination!

SIGNPOSTS OF THE DESERT Curious Little Piles of Store Which All Understand Ltad to Water. In traveling over the plains of west ern Texai 1 have now and then come on two little Isolated heaps of rock that at first glance seemed not at alt remarkable. After a time I noticed that one heap was generally about three feet high and tht other about a foot lower. The two were always with in a few feet of each other and usually on an elevation or plateau that had a view of the country for Ave miles or more. The rocks were roughly heaped to gether, as If left by children at play. I sometimes wondered If they could be the ruins of an ancient stone build ing; but that was Improbable, for there was scarcely another stone In sight. Yean later I learned the actual sig nificance of these rock heaps from an old Indian whose mind was stored with all the legends and customs and deeds of his people. According to him, when tht Great Spirit lapped up the mighty riven of the plains be left springs and water basins here and there for cht antelope and the Indian. These the antelope easily found by scent, but the Indian had to search long and anx iously for them. Once found, thev wert seldom lost thanks to these rude rook heaps. I watched the old lellow orjuch down behind the taller heap, sigh over the low one, and mark the farthest ob ject in a straight line, which in ibis case was a clump of bushes oi the horizon. We rode toward these bushes and found not water, as I bad expect ed, but two other heaps cf rocks. Sight ing as before, tnd taking a rock-faced cliff toward the southwest as a goal, we rode two miles farther, and there, trickling out from beneath ihe cliff's rocky brow, was a spring of fresh, clear water. The old Indian said that whenever a band of Indians came upon a new spring they built these rock heaps along their trail; Bince then I have fol lowed some half-dozen of these rude signposts and found them to lead ei ther to water or to places that ehowed traces of a former water course. Vouth's Companion. For Toothache. Toothache is essentially an Inflam matory condition, and In 99 per cent of the cases there is a cavity In the tooth. In those cases where there Is a cavity, but no nerve exposure, the treatment Is simple apply a sedative and ex 3lude the secretions of the mouth from the cavity; prompt relief will follow, and then advise the patient to visit l competent dentist, sayB a dentist. A very effective agent, and one al ways at hand, is the oil ot cloves. It should be applied by saturating cotton with the remedy and Introducing It Into the cavity with a toothpick or other pointed Instrument; that being done, the secretions are kept out by ailing the cavity with a little beeswax, i household remedy always at hand. The wax can be applied by warming aver a lamp on the point of a knife and forcing Into the cavity. The wax fill ing serves not only the purpose of keeping the secretions of the mouth aut, but prevents thermal changes from affecting the nerve when hot and cold substancec are taken Into the mouth. Cure for Snake Bite. Many are the curious methods adopted for curing snake bites, but surely none can be more so than a way of which our Bhavnagar corre spondent Informs us. Two natives In a village near that station were, he says, brought back to life after being bitten by a cobra. The victims were seated on the ground and then held, while from a height of 16 feet gallons and gallons of hot water were poured on their heads. Presently, according to the cor respondent, the victims "took a new lease of life," and are now as well as though they had never been in tht laws ot death. The explanation to this "cure" prob ably Is that the snake, as often hap pens, bit its victims, but Injected no poison into them. Thus the men were merely frightened, and continued to be frightened until the pain caused by the douche of hot water gave them lomethlng else to think about Civil md Military Gazette.

(DM ACQUAINTED WITH FIAT LUX Seoretary of Western Senator Wat) More Concerned With Two Lady Frltnds Than Correspondent. There it one young man in Wash ington, acting as secretary to a sena tor from a western stute, who will bt more careful In his correspondence In the coming months. He is a diplomat and prides himself on Mb tact, but in one case this spring his diplomacy was Just one too many. The senator has frequently been tht recipient of letters from people who sign some nom de plume, as "Pro Bono Publico," "Anon," "E Plurlbus Unum" and similar phrases. Recently a let ter came in regard to the senator's vote on the Panama tolls question, and the cataract of advice was signed simply "Flat Lux" a translation of which would bo: "Let there be light." "Now, this secretary did not think much about the signature, evidently. His head was bothering more with the problem of how to take two girls down the river on the same boat and keep them friends, and also as to the state of an extremely Art purse. But habit was strong and he ran off the following letter, "Mr. Flat Lux, Smithvllle, Ky. My Dear Sir: I was glad to get your let ter and note carefully Its excellent advice. It is always a pleasure to hear from you or any of your family, and I recall with pleasure meeting you on the occasion of my last trip too Smithvllle." As the senator happened to read this over when submitted for signa ture, It never was sent and the sec retary is congratulating himself that It was not Washington Star. Useful Art. The man in the automobile duster and goggles confronted an artist paint ing a picture by the roadside. "Say," said the motorist, "I'll give you five dollars for that picture Just as It is. Don't put another stroke to it" "I am really very flattered by your offer," replied the artist, "but why not wait until the picture Is finished?" "Can't I need the canvas to mend a busted tire with."
