Jewelers, when watches are with them for repairs, are frequently Insult ed with the remak : "I trust there is no danger of crys tals being substituted for the Jewels in the works of my watch," For a great many persons think there are dishonest jewelers who make a practice, with "full-jeweled" watches, of substituting crystals for the Jewels at an enormous profit As a matter of fact there Is no truth In this suspicion. A Jeweler, no matter how dishonest, could not steal the Jew els in a watch, for they are valueless; they only cost 10 cents apiece. In antique watches the Jewels were often costly. In modern watches they are never worth more than $15 a gross. Whan Anntle Wsi Hlleneerl.

Hazlett to a Kansas City Journal writer. "It costs 10 cents a bunch to raise bananas and there is always sale for them at 30 cents a bunch. Three crops of corn can be raised a year and no cultivation is re quired. A man walks along and drops the corn In the footprints he makes and a native follows and covers the corn with his big toe. That Is all there Is to do until It is time to gather It" Rooms Named for States. "In a little town in the backwoods of Mississippi," remarked a traveling man, "there Is a peculiar hotel. It is just like any other hotel except In the way the rooms are named. They are not numbered, as is generally done, but each room Is named for a State, of the United States. When I stopped at the place I was assigned to a room called 'Delaware.' It was correctly named, too, for It was one of the smallest rooms In the house. The man who was occupying 'New Hampshire' made com plaint to the landlord that the man In 'Maine' was drunk and boisterous and thus keeping him awake. This seemed strange when we recall that Maine is a prohibition State. Two men up In 'Montana' were keeping up the repu tation of the wild West by engaging in a nlosy poker game. A big, fat capi talist had 'New York,' which was the best room In the house. The room named for Alabama is too ordinary for anything, and a farmer was occupying It the night I was there. It was funny to' stand In the office and hear a bell boy tell the clerk that towels were wanted in 'Iowa' and that the fellow in 'North Dakota' was kicking like a steer because he had no fire, 'Be sure to call the man in "Florida" at 5 o'clock in the morning,' said one of the employes. And thus It went. This hotel is a curiosity to the traveling public. It Is conducted by an eccentric old fellow, but where he conceived the Idea of naming rooms after States I do not know."

Y., writes: "Seven years ago I was suffering very much through the milure of the kid neys to eliminate the uric acid from my system. My back was very lame and ached if I over exerted myself in the least degree.
