Importance of the Exchange Reader :
The man who reads the exchanges is
a very important man, and, let me say,
too, he is a pretty highly paid man. He
has to read, we will say, 8,000 papers
regularly. , All the newspapers in the
country come into the office, and he does
not do anything else. He sits at his desk
all day, and a pile of newspapers, or,
say, a cord of newspapers, is laid before
him every morning. He starts to work
and turns them over and over to see
what is in them. He has to know what
' it is that should be taken from them
and put into his paper. What is the in
teresting story? It requires judgment to
know this. It requires knowledge and
experience as well as talent. 3t also re
quires a sense of humor, because there
are a great many 'things that are really
important that may not seem so at the
first glance, and the newspaper reader
has got to judge about that He must
always be on hand and spend a great
many hours at his desk, and he is pretty
tired when he gets through with his
day's task. It is a hard duty, but he has
lots of amusement,' and, as I said, he is
very well paid. So he is happy. Charles
A. Dana in McClure s Magazine.

A PECULIAR CASE.
PHYSICIANS PUZZLED IN THE
CASE OF MRS. BOWEN.
The Episcopal Hospital Said . She Had
Consumption and Gave Her Proofs
In Substantiation. ,
From the Record, Philadelphia, Pa.
Last July the Episcopal hospital ad
mitted a woman whose pale and emaci
ated faoe and raoking cough proclaim
ed her the victim of consumption. , She
cave her name as Mrs. Same . Q.
Bowen, wife of Wm. Q. Bowen, resi
dence 1849 Meighan Street, Fhila
delphia. The case was diagnosed and
she was told plainly that she was in
an advanced stage of consumption. The
examining physician even showed her
the sunken place in her breast where
the cavity in her lung was supposed to
exist. ' She went home to her family a
broken, ; disheartened woman with
death staring her in the faoe. That
was the beginning of the story. The
end was told by Mrs. Bowen, who no
longer expects to die, to a reporter who
visited her home.
"The first symptoms of consumption
came in the form of terrible sweats,
both night and day. From April until
September I was constantly oold and
kept wrapped up in blankets through
the hottest weather. A terrible cough
took possession of me, my breats were
sore to the slightest touch, and my
limbs were like oold clay. The hard
est rubbing with the coarsest towel
would not create the slightest flush,
and the least exertion would so exhaust
me that I oould barely gasp for water.
"I went to the hospital in July and
they diagnosed my case as above stated.
It was when the clouds were the dark
est that the first glint of sunshine came.
Mr. Shelmerdine, a friend who lives
around at 1844 Clementine street, said
to me one day, 'Mrs. Bowen, did you
ever try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People?' . I had never heard of
the medioine, bnt in my condition
could not turn a deaf ear to anything
that offered relief. It was after con
siderable thought and investigation
that I concluded to discontinue all the
medioine I was taking, including ood
liver oil, and depend entirely upon
Pink Pills. I began to take the pills,
at first with but little enoouragement.
The first sign of improvement was a
warmth and a tingling sensation in my
limbs. Finally the cough disappeared,
my chest lost its soreness and I began
to gain flesh until I was fifteen pounds
heavier. All this I owe to Dr. Will
iams' Pink Pills, and I cannot praise
them too highly. "
Mrs. Bowen is a kindly f aoed lady
of middle age, a churoh member well
known and highly esteemed. She
looks today well and strong, and it
seems almost impossible that she was
ever given up by eminent physicians as
an incurable consumptive. Yet such
is the case beyond all dispute. .
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills oontain all
the elements necessary to give new life
and richness to the blood and restore
shattered nerves. They are for sale by
all druggists, or may be had by mail
from Dr. Williams' Medicine Com
pany, Schenectady, N. Y., for 50o per
box, or six boxes for $2. 50.
-, Wonders of Minute Animal Life.
The following, which might very ap
propriately bear the heading of "A Won
der of Wonders, " is from the pen of Sir
Robert S. Ball, F. R. S. , astronomer
royal of Ireland: "The microscope
teaches us that there are animals so won
derfully minute that if a thousand of
them were ranked abreast they could
easily swim, without being thrown out
of order, through the eye of the finest
cambrio needle ever made. Yet each of
the minute creatures is a highly organ
ized number of particles, capable of mov
ing about, of finding and devouring food
end of behaving in all respects as be
comes an animal as distinguished from
a fragment of unorganized matter. " The
human mind is utterly incapable of real
izing the structure of these little crea
tures and of fully appreciating their
marvelous adaptation to the life they are
destined to lead.
The Secret of French Cooking.
The gentle heat is said to be the secret
of the superior delicacy and richness of
French cooking. With a gentle heat and
tight covers ' we may have just the
amount of juice we like in our vegeta
bles. A glance will decide this, or per
haps the ear, if the hand at the same
time rests on the cover. Many kinds of
meat may be cooked in this way to the
best advantage. A rump steak, three or
four inches thick, kept closely covered
and cooked in its own juices alone, will
be far more tender than when put into
the oven, and this without basting and
without fat, the latter having been trim

TO RIDE ASTRIDE.
A Divided Skirt Which Finds Popularity
. . Among Chicago Horsewomen.
Emancipation from skirts is one at
the privileges which the advanced wom
an has long been
and the prevail
ing popularity of
other outdoor ex
ercises for worn
en gives a sudden
impetus to that
long delayed re'
skirts no longer

the dav when the
miss woods' divided horsewom an
skirt. . may ride astride
man fashion without fear of criticism is
at hand. The sidesaddle has always been
a serious handicap, and Miss Woods, an
enterprising Chicago woman, has in
vented a costume which enables her to
discard it without derogation of her
womanly modesty and dignity.
The lower garment of this costume
may be called a divided skirt, but prac
tically it resembles a pair of very wide
trousers. The two skirts, each a third
of a yard in width, are fastened in a
belt at the waist, and gathered in with
a row of plaits at the middle of the
front and back. These plaits give the
divided garment the appearance of a
single skirt, and the fullness of each
skirt at the bottom completes the illu
sion. A panel almost as wide as the ap
parent width of the skirt falls on each
side, from the belt almost to the foot,
which adds to the effectiveness and con
ventional appearance of the fostume
when the wearer is astride a horse. The
improvement claimed for this costume
over the ordinary divided skirt is that
there is no clumsy fullness at the bottom.
The skirt hangs straight, and is no wid
er than an ordinary riding habit. It dis
plays less of the contour of the figure
than the regular costume used with the
Miss Woods introduced the innovation
as a result of her experience in Pales
tine. After much discomfort and sever
al mishaps jn riding in a dilapidated
sidesaddle she one day boldly threw her
leg across the horse's back and rode that
way all day before any one discovered
her. Then she refused to ride any other
way. All the Arabian women ride
astride, and she followed the custom of
the country during the rest of her stay
there. With the remembrance of the
oomfort experienced on that trip she
decided to adopt man s fashion in Chi
cago, and did so, with the result that
her example is being followed by a
large and increasing number of women
in the Windy City.
CHIEF PENCIL PUSHER.
Louis X. Megargee Is President of the In
ternational League of Press Clubs.
The members of the International
League of Press Clubs, who have recent
ly been enjoying the profuse hospitality
of Philadelphia, did a graceful act in
electing to the highest office in their
gift Mr. Louis ' N. Megargee, who as
president of the Pen and Penoil club is
largely responsible for their entertain
ment in the Quaker City. Mr. Megar
gee, who succeeds Clark Howell of At
lanta as president of the league, is one
of the most widely known and popular
newspaper men in the country. He is
88 years old and has been engaged in
newspaper work ever since he was grad
uated from the Philadelphia high school
about 20 years ago.
After an apprenticeship as a reporter on
The Times he went to the Philadelphia
Press in 1881 as oity editor, and in that
position was distinguished for enterprise
and thoroughness. In 1884 he went to

of Major Moses P. Handy, as managing

editor, and two years later removed to
New York. There he soon gained a
reputation as a writer of extraordinary
facility and felicity, and as a corre
spondent for out of town papers was
very successful. Three or four years ago
he returned to Philadelphia to take the
position of city editor of. The Times.
Mr. Megargee is happily married and
has five children.
The International League of Press
Clubs was organized five years agd,
largely through the efforts of T. J. Kee-
nan, Jr. , of Pittsburg. It has prospered
exceedingly, and at its annual meetings
all the principal local press clubs of the
United States and Canada are repre
sented. The objects of the league are to
stimulate the spirit of fraternity and to
promote the interests of newspaper work
ers everywhere. One of its immediate
objects is to establish a home for aged,
and indigent journalists on Ramapo
mountain, New York. The league ex
peots ultimately to extend its influence
across the seas and hopes, some day to
hold a convention in Europe.

speaks English perfectly and was for
some time attached to a church in the
Marylebone road, London, and a pro
fessor at the Westminster diocesan semi

afterward nuncio in Paris. He belongs
