hoes, Shoes, Shoes
We have purchased at Bankrupt Sale a $2,000 j stock of
i Men's, Women's and Children's Shoes '
and as we were fortunate enough to secure these goods at about
Fifty Cents on the Dollar
we are in a position to meet any and all competition. Most of these shoes are Of the
well known SMI H, WALACE & CO. make, a line that has been sold in this
town for the past ten years, and is well and favorably known. When you want
anything in the Shoe or Clothing lines call on us. I ' WILL PAY YOU ,

Ya WmM Hardly Think H Maa

. Have you ever thought of the dla
tttpct you travel wbeu you are out op
lit hucr't stroll? Possibly you wsJ
three miles within the hour, hut tliat
doe not by any means represent ti
distance you travel. The enrtb turn
on Its axis every tweuty-four bourn.
For the sake of round figures, we wM
call the earth's clrcuniference 24,01)0
miles, and so you must have traveled
during the hour's stroll 1,000 miles In
the axial turn of the earth.
But this la not all. The earth makes
Journey around the sun every year,
and a long but rapid trip It Is. The dis
tance of our planet from the sun we
will put at 02,000,000 miles. This Is
the radius of the earth's orbit half the
diameter of the circle, as we call It
The whole diameter la therefore 184
000,000 miles, and the circumference,
being the diameter multiplied by
8.1416, Is about 678,000,000.
This amazing distance the earth trar
els In Its yearly Journey, and dividing
It by SUA we And the dully speed about
1,680,000. Then we get the distance
you rode around the sun during your
hour's walk, divide again by twenty'
four,; and the result Is about 00,000
mll. Hut this Is not the end of your
hour's trip. , The sun, with Its entire
brood of planets, Is moving In space at
the rate of 100,000,000 miles In a year.
That Is at the rate of a little more than
4.'18,000 miles a day, or 18,250 miles an
Bo, adding your three miles of leg
travel to the hour's axial movement of
the earth, this to the earth's orbital
Journey and that again to the earth's
excursion with the sun, and you find
you have traveled In the hour 83,233
aeeUe Methods la England la taa
Carpets wore unknown luxuries, in
EngUnd In the fourteenth century, but
the fashion of strewing the apartments
with rushes was being gradually aban
doned. Bushes were still used In the
retainers' ball, but for the better rooms
weet scented herbs and fragrant twigs
were usually employed.,
Windows were apertures filled with
glass so as to admit light, but to ex
clude wind. The walls also were fre
quently bung with cloth or tapestry to
protect the inmates of the room from
the many currents of air that pene
trated the strong but badly built walls.
We learn from various ancient docu
ments that It was the duty of the serv
ing men and page to sweep out the
principal apartmeuts, but as the use
of water Is rarely mentioned dam?
and fragrant leaves and twigs must
have hided not only in collecting the
dust, but also toward refreshing the
atmosphere In such constantly closed
rooms, fresh air being only admitted
through the doors opening on to the
battlements or balconies.
From old Inventories at TburleJgh
and elsewhere we ascertain how scan
tily furnished were these ancient man
sions, although they seem to have been
abundantly supplied with flagons end
drinking cups In gold, silver and finely
engraved pewter, besides an Infinite
number of black Jacks or cups made of
Otni aad Dlmu.
Many curious stories of the healing
of blindness and diseases by gems are
to be found In ancient works, and it Is
aid that the Emperor Tiieodoslus was
cured of blindness by a stone of gnrat
brilliancy which was laid on his eyes.
What this stone was history unfortu
nately does not say. The diamond,
ruby, emerald and opal were supposed
to warn the owuer of danger by chang
ing color, rilny says of the diamond
that It la not only an antidote to poi
son, but that it has the power to fnee
the mind from vain fears and to gtve
bravery. Worn In the ephod of the
high priest it determined Innocence or
guilt and was used to detect accused
persons. This gem Is dedicated to
April, and, worn by those born In that
month, Is lucky. Myerson's Magazine,
That Is Fleatr of Coal.
Every now and then some statistician
with too much liver utters figures show
ing that the world's coal supply will
lost only a few hundreds of years.
Make It many, many thousands. China
has coal to burn 400,000 square miles
of coal fields, some say. Japan has
plenty more. Kountaula hus enough
for the Balkan states if ever they stop
burning powder and one another's
houses. America's bin will be full for
centuries on centuries. Great Britain
and Germany will not be coal less soon.
Let OS worry about something elne, .
"Acre" once meant any Md. It is
still used with thftf significance by the
Germans, who apeak of God's acre, al

Paul, the eccentric czar of nusslo
assassinated In 1801, was very particu

advantage of by an Olllcer of the
guards, Major Vaksel, to win a bet
The major, tho wildest Joker in the ar

that he would tweak the tall of the em

The very next day tho emperor hap

excitement and terror, Vaksel's com

enraged czar, his eyes giving flushing
evidence that his uio.! dangerous mood
was upon him.

THE LUNGS ARE LIFE;
Aa Odd Little Ee.ay oa the Sabjeet
Everything on, In and under the earth
breathes animals, minerals, vegeta
bles, etc. The tides are caused by the
breathing of the earth Itself. Tills old
globe must take two long breaths r.
day, each Inspiration requiring six
hours and each expiration the same
period of time. If Mother Earth did
not breathe she would tu all probabili
ty "bust" and blow up. When she
breathes too hard, as If In a panic, or
because of some geological excitement,
she cracks the ground and we have the
earthquake. Her ordinary respiratory
mpvemeut merely expands aud con
tracts the water volume.
Hlngularly enough, air Is the most im
portant element provided by nature.
A man can live forty-five days without I
food, several ibiva without wafer nn1 I
about three or four minutes without
air. Take away his lungs, as by pneu

Does the heart beat make tho circula

causes breathing? Does breathing
make the heart beat? Does breathing
make the circulation? Important, vi
