8yrlan Charm Against the Evil Eye
the evil glance Is bent. Whoever be
lieves thus 1b, of course, frightened
by a gaze that he considers to be evil
and the maladies due to suggestibility
may follow. Fortunately they can be
also cured by suggestion, hence the fa
vorable results of "white magic" ol
all kinds, including especially amulets.
These really do ward off the effect ol
the evil eye, since, as these effects arc
due to suggestion, anything that will
cause a counteracting suggestion will
prevent the injurious action. Those
who do not believe in the evil eye.
however, do not need the amulet, and
hence its use has fallen off.
A Kansao Editorial
It vanned our heurts the other day
to boc a top buggy, new and glisten-

chuckle. Hodge's boy has the right
idea; gasoline can burn up the roads,
but a trusty old nag with a buggy will
find the shortest way to Sarah's heart.
Bide your time, Jim! The good old
country buggy is still the king of sloge

young Shaw takes Sarah for a spin in
his flivver. Well, let him and as of
ten as he wants! Mere speed can't
win a girl like Sarah. Give Shaw his
choice moonlight nights and be you
content with the dark ones. His eyes
are always on the road. His hands
are busy with the steering wheel. His
voice is drowned In chugs and whirs
and sputters. Here lies your incom

down the reins! A long road and a
shadowy one. Something to say and
an eternity to say it. Colliers.
When Whipping Cream.
To prevent splashing and waste
when beating eggs or whipping cream
with an egg beater, cut a piece of
clean white cloth or brown paper
across at right angles in the middle
so there will be four small flaps. Pull
the paper down over the handle of the
egg beater and let the outer part of
the paper cover the edge of the bowl.

How to Test Water.
Every one knows and admits the ne
cesslty for pure water. When you are
away from home, and are not sure of
the character of the water supply,
would not be a bad Idea to make a few
simple tests. The results may prove
that It was decidedly worth while tc
take the trouble. Here are two tests
that you can make very easily:
Fill a tumbler with water, drop in 8
lump of white sugar, cover it with
saucer, and let it stand overnight on
the bricks at the side of the range, on
the kitchen mantelpiece, or, in fact.
anywhere where the temperature will
not sink below 60 degrees. If next
morning the contents are clear, the
water is pure. If, on the other hand
the liquid 1b cloudy, some source ol
contamination 1b indisputably proved.
The second test is to drop a few
grains of permanganate of potash into
a tumbler of water, cover, and let
stand for an hour. If the water is still
of the bright rosy color to which the
chemical turned It, It is perfectly safe
for drinking; if it is of a brownish
color, it is impure, although the im
purity may be of the kind that boil
ing will rob of its power to harm.

When You Grit Your Teeth.
"Probably you don't know that there
is a pressure of 250 pounds to the
square inch on the teeth when the
average citizen grits his molars to
gether at a ball game or because rent
day comes so often," said a dentist
"The pressure may be less or it may
be greater, but 250 pounds is the aver
"And think of the damage that may
be done. One of my customers
cracked off a porcelain tooth in his
sleep one night when he crunched hie
teeth together, probably dreaming
about a business deal. What did he
do? He came around the next day and
told me I was a punk dentist and that
the tooth which I had put In a short
time before was a fake.
"I told him all about the 250 pounds
pressure and that probably no art!
flcial tooth would stand such a Btrain
But I don't think he believed a word
of it, because he went away angry and
I have not seen him since. I had fig
ured out that that particular tooth was
a rather artistic piece of work too."

whizzing. It struck the icicle at the

For Another Euripides.
If some poet or dramatist as great
as Euripides were to rise from the
wreck of this war and write of what
he had seen he could not better the
denunciation in "The Trojan Women"
which runs, in part, "How are ye
blind, ye treaders down of cities, . , .
yourselves so soon to die.' Those
lines were spoken when this play was
presented in the new stadium of the
City college. They brought horns to
all who heard them the sickening real
ization that Europe has sloughed oft
its veneer of civilization and is back
where it was six centuries-before the
birth of Christ, when ancient Greece,
too, believed that she had emerged
from barbarism and did not see the
ruin then Impending. In France, in
Belgium, In northern Italy and on the
windy plains of ancient Troy itself the
shade of Euripides might again de
nounce those "that cast temples to
desolation and lay waste tombs, the
untrodden sanctuaries where lie the
ancient dead." In morals and lust for
blood Europe has reverted to the days
of the cave man.

Taken altogether, according to official
reports coming to the department of
commerce, American bees have be
haved handsomely this year. They
have made an unusually large crop,
the average yield being 36.2 pounds
for every colony, as compared with
32.2 pounds last year.
Our ordinary crop is 50,000,000
pounds, and it will be greater than
that this year. Prices are down, how
ever, because of the shifting market
and heavy yield, and also because of
a very much heavier crop In the West
Indies, which is handled here. This
country has never sent much honey to
England. Only $4,000 worth went
there last year.

"Anuric" Will Not Fail to Stop Your Backache.
People are realizing more and more
every day that the kidneys, Just as do
tho bowels, need to be flushed occa
sionally. The kidneys are an elimina
tlve organ and are constantly working,
separating the poisons from the blood.
Under this continual and perpetual
action they are apt to congest, and
then trouble starts. Uric acid backs
up into the system, causing rheuma
tism, neuralgia, dropsy and many other
serious disturbances. Doctor Pierce
of Buffalo, New York, advocates that
every one should drink plenty of pure
water between meals. Every day
should exercise in the outdoor air suf
ficiently to sweat profusely, and from
time to time stimulate the kidney ac
tion by means of "Anuric." This prep
aration has been thoroughly tried out
at bis Sanitarium, in the same way as
his "Favorite Prescription" for weak
women and "Golden Medical Discov
ery," the standard herbal system ton
ic (both of which now come in tablet
form for convenience of carrying and
taking). "Anuric" is now being intro
duced here, and many local people are
daily testifying to its pcrfectness.
When you have backache, dizzy
spells or rheumatism, heed nature's
warning. It means that you are a
victim to uric acid poisoning. Then
ask your druggist for "Anuric" and
you will very soon become one of hun
dreds who daily give their thankful
indorsement to this powerful enemy to
