BURIED UNDER PAPERS.
8etween Litter and Flnss Life In De
Quincey's Home Was Lively.
Do Quincey's greatest extravagance
jrew out of the morbid vnluo he set
upon papers and their not being (lis
turned. Ho was In the habit of accu
initiating theso until, In his own
words, ho was "snowed up." which
.lieant that when matters reached such
an extremity that thcro was not s
nnuaro Inch of room on tho table to
set a cup upon and no possibility of
making his bed for the weight of pa
pers gathered there; no chair which
could ho used for Its legitimate pur
pose, and the track from the door to
the fireplace, always kept open until
the last, was completely obliterated so
that ho had not even placo In which
to set his foot then Do Qulncey lock
ed the door upon his paper treasures
and turned elsewhere. At his denth
there were nt least a half dozen such
places "papered" by him and being
maintained at no small expense.
Such a thing had been experienced
ns his nctually "papering" his family
out of house, but In later years his
daughters learned how to guard
against such n contingency.
Do Qirincey usually spent the even
ings with his family, who looked for
ward to these hours with much pleas
ure. Upon the arrival of tho newspa
per he would render tho news In his
own quaint manner, questioning tiio
various members of tho group about
him and Illuminating the vnrlous sub

memories, good stories or tinman or
perlences until tho happiest flow of
real conversation sprang from tho cir
cumstances of the moment.
IIo was not a trnnqulllzInF .'ompan
Ion for nervous persons to live with,
ns those nights wero the exceptions on
which ho did not set flro to something.
It wns n common occurrence for ouo
of his daughters to look up from her
work and to say casually, "Papa, your
hair is on flro!" to which ho would re

FARM WAGES STILL HIGHER. TheDu Four Co.,Wash., D.C,
Riie 2.5 Per Cent In Last Year and 11
Per Cent Since Four Years Ago.
Tho wages of farm labor Increased
about 2.5 per cent last year and about
11 per cent In the last four yearn.
Since 1002 the Increase has been nbout
B(J per cent. The estimates nre based
upon reports of correspondents of tho
bureau of statistics of the department
Tho current nvcrngo rate of farm
wages In the United States, when
hoard Is Included. Is, by tho month.
$21.38; by tho day, other than harvest,
$1.1(1; nt harvest. $1.57. When bonrd
Is not Included the rate Is, by th
month, $:I0.;U; by the day, other than
harvest, $1.50; by the day, nt harvest.
Wages of farm labor have been lo
creasing rapidly, not only In tho Unit
ed States, but In most, If not nil, other
countries of the world.
Although farm wages In the United
States Increased about fl" per cent
from 1000 to 1010, land values nearly

that In the distribution of the proceed!

Woman Finally Recovers
From Nervous Breakdown
Impoverished nerves destroy many
people before their time. Often be
fore a sufferer realizes what the
trouble is, lie is on the verge of a
complete nervous breakdown. It
is of the utmost importance to keep
your nervous system in good con

of all bodily power. Mrs. Uosa

"I have been suffering with nerv

years. Have tried many of the best
doctors in llirmiugliam, but they all
