A Famous Skull.
A recent gift to the Peabody Museum
of American Archaeology and Ethnol
ogy of the famous "Calaveras skull"
reawakens interest in that remarkable
relic of antique man. The skull was
found in 1866 imbedded in gold-bearing
gravel in Calaveras county, California,
at a depth of 127 feet. Above it were
four beds of lava that had flowed from
a now extinct volcanic vent. The late
Prof. J. D. Whitney (whose sister, Mies
Maria Whitney, made the gift to the
museum) was convinced of the genuine
pets of the discovery. The owner of
the skull is supposed to have lived in
the Pliocene epoch, a period so remote
that the most ancient dates of history
seem quite recent in comparison.

YOUNG AT SIXTY.
Serene comfort and happiness in ad

tively few women.
Their hard lives, their liability to 86'
rious troubles on account of their pecvr
liar organism and their profound igno
rance concerning themselves, all com-
bine to shorten the period of usefulness
and fill their lateryears with suffering.
Mrs. Pinkham has done much to make
women strong. She has given advice
to many that has shown them how to
guard against disease and retain vigor
ous health in old age. From every cor
ner of the earth there Is constantly com
lng the most convinciug statements
from women, showing the efficacy of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound in overcoming female ills. Here
is a letter from Mrs. J. C. Orms, of 220
Horner St., Johnstown, Pa., which is
earnest and straight to the point:
' Dear Mbs. Pinkham. I feel ltmy
duty to tell all suffering women that I
think your remedies are wonderful. I
had trouble with my head. dizzy spells
and hot flashes. Feet and hands were
cold, was very nervous, could not sleep
well, had . kidney trouble, pain in
ovaries and congestion of the womb.
SiDce taking your remedies I am better
every way My head trouble is all
gone, have no pain in ovaries, and am
cured of womb trouble. I can eat and
sleep well and am gaining in flesh. I
consider your medicine the best to be
bad for female troubles."
The present Mrs. Pinkham's experi
ence in treating female ills is unparal
lelled, for years she worked side by
side with Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham, and
for sometime past has had sole chargo
of the correspondence department of
her great business, treating by letter
as many as a hundred thousand ailing
women during a single year.
DR. WHITE TALKS.
He Sounds a, Note of Warning That
Should Be Heeded by All.
One of the points where "science
teaches us that what is might have
been avoided, ib in the matter of ir
regular teeth. ' "A great percentage of
the irregular teeth 'we see," says Dr.
Thomas H. White, at the northeast
corner oi Morrison and Fourth streets,
"in caused by the lack of proper oare
of the infant teeth. When we come
to considder the great number of teeth
in malposition, the subject of the care
of the first teeth assumes new import
ance to us." In discussing this matter
with a representative of , the press, re
cently, he said among other things:
"Mothers cannot be too careful in their
consideration of the condition and
character of the first teeth of their
children. The object of this is not to
allow the deoay of the first teeth to
proceed so far that they become ulcer
ated or abcesses form at their roots, in
which case extraction is the only solu
tion of the trouble. The first teeth
should be retained until nature is ready
to supplant them with other teeth.
This can be accomplished by the tem
porary filling of cavities so that the
teeth may be depended upon in the
mastication of food. The very exercise
of the teeth, as with any other organ of
the body, will aid in keeping them in a
healthy condition. Every part of the
body has a function to perform, and
should De maintained in a healthy con
dition to accomplish it if possible.
Every tooth, therefore, that is extract
ed interferes to a certain degree with
the preparatory process of digestion.
Of course, it is not to the interest of
the dentist to have teeth taken care of

Willard Aldrlch Has His Coffin Made

William Aldrlch, on eccentric bach

constructed in the shape of an "L,"
with the perpendicular line at a slight

County, Michigan, where he was one
of the wealthy land owners and quite
prominent as a Spiritualist. Being
6tricken with consumption, he went to
his mother's home to die. -
When the queer casket was built he
had it taken to his home to test it, gave
the undertaker instructions as to glass
front, hinges and inscriptions. At the
funeral the colli n could not be placed
in the funeral car, hence several crews
of pallbearers' were secured to relieve
each other. The reclining coffin was
placed In a large vault, covered with a
monster slab. His mother was in
