The most durable wood k which we"
tanvo cvldeneo 1b that of which tho
wooden tombs discovered In Egypt
were built mid which Professor Petrle
estimates to dnte from -1777 H. C. They
were most probably constructed from
timber yielded by n HpeeleH of palm.
Onli wood when once It has passed n
certain t:go becomes practically ever
lasting. Evidence of this Is found In
the roofs of Westminster hall and of
the rathodrnl at KIrkwulI, which have
histod almost n thousnnd years. An
cient oak caiiucH discovered from tlmo
to. time yield strung testimony to this,
for one thirty-throe feet long was re
cently relloated on tho Clyde, probably
2,000 yenrti after It was tlrst made.
For general durability, however, onk
must Rive place to teal:, which when
seasoned will neither warp, crack nor
shrink. "It will, indeed, Inst fonger
than ninny kinds of stone, since nei
ther weather nor water affects It in
juriously. Fragments of teak ninny

In Indian rock temples. It la proba

THE WORD "TAWDRY."
Where AVo Get It nnil AVhnt It Mcnnt
The word "tawdry," spelt In John
Bon's Dictionary "stnwdrey," Is a cor
ruption of St. Audrey, or St. Ethel
reda, In whose honor a fair was held
In East Anglla on Oct. 17. Tho word
wns originally used of a necklace
bought ut that fnlr, often made of
white pebbles, as Diaytoiinvrltea:
Not the nmallest li ck
nut with vMte pol'l Iph makes lu-r taw
drya for her utclc.
Orlglnnlly this word did not necessa
rily Imply nlmbby splendor, for Shnko
spetiro lu "The W'lnter'n Talc" hris:
"Come, you promised me a tawdry laco
nud u imlr of sweet gloves." Since his
day the word has long lost Its better
meaning and now stands for things
gaudy. In poor taste and of little value.
Others say that St. Audrey died of n
swelling In tho throat, which she con
sidered u special Judgment for wearing
a necklace, and that from this legend
such ornaments were connected with
her name and later took on Its worse
meaulng. London Telegraph.
SUGAR FROM RAGS.
ProccsR lr Which Shretltled Linen Is
Turned Into Griipe Suffnr.
A curiously Interesting experiment
may ho niado by slowly adding concen
trated Biilphurlc acid to half Its weight
of Hut or shredded linen, which Is then
pounded in a mortar aud left to stauU
for somo hours. Afterward this is rub
bed up with water, warmed ttnd filter
ed, and tho solution Is Anally neutral
ized with chalk nnd again llltered.
Tho gummy liquid rotnlns lime, part
ly in tho state of sulphate, partly In
combination with a peculiar acid, com
posed of the olements of sulphuric with
those of thu llgulne, to which tho name
Bulpho-llgulc add Is given.
If tho liquid before neutralization Is
boiled for three or four hours and tho
water replaced, Uie acid evaporates,
and tho dextrine Is entirely changed
into1 grnpo sugar. Linen rags by this
process may bo mado to furnish mora
than their own weight of this sub
stance. Pearson's Weekly.
In Canes of Shock.
A person in tho state termed "shock"
Is in a very critical condition. Med
ical assistance should be procured as
soon as possible. Tho faco will bo

cold perspiration, pulso very feeble

be complete loss of consciousness. IC
tho patient is dressed loosen all tho
clothing about the neck and chest, ap
ply heat to the extremities, to the pit
of the stomnch, under tho arms and
mustard over tho heart Give stimu
lants freely, nnd if thero Is nausea give
bits of cracked ice.
"Arrah, you're lookin' very sad," said
Pat OTIolllhau, addressing his friend

Died in Marsland, June 25, of heart
and lung trouble, Margaret, youngest
child of Mr. and Mrs. C. II. Ricbcy,
aged 10 years and 11 months. Her
sickness dated back to Decoration day,
when in company with her little friend,
Lottie Irion of Scottsbluffs, she walked
to the cetuotry, gathering as they went
along the wild flowers which grew by
the roadside, with which to decorate
the graves of their little brother and
sister. The day was warm and it 'is,
thought that Margaret was over heated,
for almost immediately she was taken
sick with a complication of diseases
which so soon carried her away. She
was a patient little sufferer and consci
ous to the cud, and as she looked up
into the sorrowing faces of those who
stood by her bedside, sho smiled and
said, "Good by, Good by all, I'm dying
now." Her death causes a vacancy m
the heart and home of the afllicted
parents aud brothers and sisters which
nothing on earth can supply, and dear
schoolmates and friends, also sorrow
that this jewel which sparkled so
brightly in loye's casket has faded from
their sight. But they mourn not as
those without hope. A host of friends
sympathize with Mr. and Mrs. Richey
for they mourn not alone. Funeral
set vices will be held at the home oil
Wednesday morning, when it is hoped
the two brothers on the western coast
aud one in Iowa will be present. It is
also expected that the Rev. J. B. Cur-
ren of Omaha, a friend of the family of
many years standing will be present to
conducted the services.

I wish to inform the public that the
improved Triangular Lever Lift Hay
Chain Millet and Alfalfa Stacker is tak
ing the lead of all, other stackers in
Nebraska. I have now in the alfalfa
fields of this state more than one, hun
dred of them, doing good and satis
factory work with one horse. In fact
our sales have been so large that we
have been unable to get our orders of
stackers and sweeps filled as fast as
received. This being the case, I have
just completed arrangements whereby
the Forest Lumber company will man
ufacture a large number for us and of
the best material money can buy. A
car of this material has been secured
by us and shipped to this point ten
days since. Mr. G. W. Clark will give
the selecting of material aud superin
tending of constructing of his
personal attention and each and
every piece will be full' guaranteed,
and to show that our heart is in the
right place and our guarantee means
something, we will say right here that
everyone who purchased stackers last
year of the Lever Lift Stacker compart-
can return same aud take out a
new one built out of the best material
we can buy and built on scientific
principles, so as to give each piece of
material used its full tested strength
with the improvements free of charge,
and I will say right here that I will be
glad to meet any other stacker in the
hay field with the scales and let them
theiu test the draft of their machine
and distance of drive. When they
have done their best, I will use the
same rope they have used, put on my
stacket and hoist more pounds with
less travel of team and have rope to
spare and the stacker will return each
and every time when the hay has been
deposited on the center of stack with
out weight of any kind.
You can buy one of these stackers
for cash or on Ume and at prices mado
to sell the goods. It runs with one pul
ley with two horses or two pulleys with
one horse and has quicker action than
any other stacker.
