tho largest mooso known, the sea ot

What is thought to be a new species

It is an inland white bear, not an al

Every housekeeper should know
that If they will buy Defiance Cold

will save not only time, because It
nover sticks to tho Iron, but because
each package contains 1C oz. one full

Starches are put up In -pound pack
ages, and tho price Is tho s,nmo, 10
cents. Then again because Defiande
Starch Is free from nil injurious chem

a 12-oz. package It is because he has
a stock on hand which he wishes to

and spreading the pews of the world,
form a network across tho continent
from St. John. N. B.. to Seattle, Wash.,
nnd from Duluth, Minn., to New Or
leans," Galveston, nnd tho City of
Mexico. The news It gathers during
twenty-four hours, from every part of
tho world, amounts to thirty-five col
umns of a newspapor of average size.
Soven hundred papers use this ser
vice. Melville E. Stone, the vice presl
dent and manager of the Associated
Press, has written of the organization
alms, nnd workings of the association;
and the story will run through several
Issues of Tho Century. The April
number will tell of its operations in
Europe, and how its present efficiency
was brought about. The present satis

only through considerable diplomacy
and through Mr. Stone's personal pre

HEALTH CAMP FOR CONSUMPTIVES
Worthy Enterprise Established in Southern Cal
iforniaSo Arranged That Patients May
A New York paper pub'tshia nn ac
count of a successful effoFt recently
made by Mr. N. O. Nelson, In South
ern California, to provide for the poor
er classes. Mr, Nelson has established
at Indlo, In Southern California, what
ho calls a health camp for consump
tives. Wo quote the following de
scription of this worthy enterprise
with the Jiopo that It may encourage
others to do likewise; for certainly
no moro beneficent work can bo under
taken by anyone:
"Tho camp is located In a desort
valloy, cut off from tho ocean by
tho mountains. Them is no rain, n&
fog, no clouds. Tho winter days nro
all warm, tho nights comparatively
"The camp was established In De
cember, 1902, to provldo in part for
tho large number of consumptives and
other Invalids who go to Southern
California. Most of tho Invalids have
littlo means; they can not afford ex
pensive sanitariums, and aro not want
ed by hotels and boarding houses.
"To meet tho requirements of such
patients, Mr. Nelson bought ono bun
dred and twenty-flvo acres of land ad
Joining tho Indlo depot. This tract
ho has improved by sinking artesian
wells, and by putting most of tho land
under cultivation, In order to glvo con
valescents something to do.
"Tents, with all necessary equip
ment for sleeping nnd taking meals,
have been set up. Land and water
nro free to thoso who have their own
outfit. A small rental for tents Is
made to those who can not pay, and
w.here necessary, board Is given them.
All expenses reed not bo more than
from $2,50 to $4.00 a week.
"Work Is provided for thoso who are
able to do it, so that their care does
not become a burden on tho camp.
"The camp Is situated In the midst
or a sandy valley ono hundred miles
long and three to ten miles wide.
Tho mountains on each side rise by
degrees to four thousand and five
thousand feet high. In some places in
tho foothills there aro springs and
"In the valleys most of tho land
has been taken up In tho pnst few
years. Tho crops of melons and vege
tables are early and bring high prices.
From $100 to $200 an acre is an
ordinary yield. Alfalfa hay is cut ten
limes a year, giving twolvo to fifteen
tons nn acre.
"When the campers get well enough
to work, they buy or lease a fow
acres. They can either buy tho land
on tho Instalment plan, or lease It on
shares for Buch lengthi of time ns de
sired." Alcohol and Tuberculosis.
Dr. S. A. Knopf, tho eminent New
York physician who has given a great
deal of attention to tho subject ot
tuberculosis, took occasion not long
since in a scientific paper to condemn
the popular notion thnt alcohol Is a
remedy for consumption. Ho says:
.There Is an idea that alcohol Is a
remedy or even a specific remedy for
consumption. There has never been
a greater mistake mado. Alcohol has
never cured and never will cure
tuberculosis. It will either prevent or
retard recovery. It Is like a two
edged weapon: on ono side It poi
sons the system, and on tho other side
it ruins the stomach and thus prevents
this organ from properly digesting the
necessary food. Truly pathetic aro
tho results of this erroneous doctrine
In the families of tho poor, where, In
stead of procuring good nourishment
for the invalid, liquor has been bought
In far too largo quantities, so that
often there was not enough money left
for food fdr the sufferer nor for tho
other members of the family."
Predisposition to Tuberculosis.
Tho abnormal fear of tuberculosis
which haunts so many minds Is bred
of ignorance. . The awful results of
the "white terror" havo Impressed
themselves upon all, but as with the
aborigine, when he first encountered
the gun-bearing explorer, the reason
why Is hidden. Tho native heard the
gun speak and saw his brother fall.
Tho sudden death terrified him. Ho
did not stop to inquire the cause. Ho
fled in abject fear.
To-day tho ravages of tuberculosis
aro stupendous. Aro you inquiring
into the why, or are you trembling
lest it seize you? Aro you trying to
dodge an Inscrutable foe, or aro you
studying to give intelligent battle?
Tho tenement dweller says, "I can not
escape tho plague, I will await my
turn." Tho son or brother of a con
sumptive says: "It Is in tho family,
I must suffer tho same death." The
weakened victim of Intemperance or
neglect of vital laws says: "My con
stitution Is wrecked I am no match
for this relentless foe."
Dr. Knopf asks and answers tho
following pertinent query: "Who aro
the individuals who must be particu
larly careful so as not to be attacked
by the almost ever present tubercle
"There aro four classes: First, those
who have a hereditary predisposition
to consumption; secondly, those who
have weakened their system and thus
predisposed themselves to consump
tion by the intemperate use of alco
holic beverages, by a dissipated life,
by excesses of all kinds, etc,; thirdly,
those whose constitution has been
weakened through disease; fourthly,
those whose occupations, trades or
professions, such as printing, hat mak
ing, tailoring, weaving, and all occU- J
pntlons where the worker Is much ex
posed to the Inhalation of various
kinds of dust, have rendered them
particularly liable to consumption."
Let every one take courage and live
above tuberculosis. If you are already
suffering from it strive to rise above
it. Avoid alcoholic beverages, condi
ments, pastries, tea and coffee. Live
out of doors, provide fresh air for
your bed room, study the laws of your
body and return to the natural way
Food for Brain Vorkers.
Mental work requires much less
food thun does physical )abor. Re
cent careful experiments which havo
been made, show that men engaged
in active mental labor and abstaining
from muscular exertion, require prac
tically no moro food than men at rest.
This is a fact of very great import
ance for students, ministers, and oth
er professional men whose occupation
does not require any considerable
amount of effort, since the taking of
food in excess of that which is re
quired results in tho filling of the
blood with poisons, and in conse
quence crowding of the tissues with
tissue wastes and poisonous matters
which Interfere with all the bodily
functions, and especially with the
functions of the brain and nerves.
Mental activity Is clouded, sleep may
be prevented, and all tho effects of
nervous exhaustion produced by a
comparatively slight expenditure of

Tho condition of lethargy produced
by excessive eating or habitual drunk
enness must be distinguished from fa
tigue duetto work. Persons in this
condition often decline to exercise be
cause they "feel so tired." This state
of lassitude and enervation cannot be
overcome by rest. Carefully graduat
ed exercises and regulation of the di
etary are the proper remedies. There

ferings and disability are wholly due
to this cause, and who may be read

A physician connected with the
United States Agricultural department
has called attention to the fact that
an extremely small quantity of sul
phato of copper will prevent the
growth of algae In lakes, ponds and
storago reservoirs, and will destroy
typhoid and cholera germs. The ques
tion at once arises whether this meth
od can bo considered thoroughly hy
gienic. Tho probability is that the
small amount of copper thus em
ployed would be neutralized by com
bining with vegetable substances so
that the water will bo left practically
pure; nevertheless, the addition of
chemical substances' to water cannot
bo considered tho most desirable
method of purification. Boiling and
filtering through a Pasteur filter are
really tho best methods. Filters are
cheap, nnd boiling is an easy and sim
ple process. Tho old-fashioned cha'r

SOME SIMPLE DISHES.
Breakfast Toast Cut rather thin
slices of bread Into two or three
pieces. Put these into the oven anil
let them bake very slowly for two or
three hours, or until of a golden color
and crisp throughout. This Is an ex
cellent substitute for breads and much
more wholesome. It Is delicious served
with cocoanut or dairy cream or but
ter. Cocoanut Cream. Cut fresh cocoa
nut into thin slices and grind the nut
very fine in a chopper or somo strong
hand mill. If nothing of this sort is
available, tho cocoanut may be grated.
To each cup or tho prepared nut add
one cup of hot water, stirring and
beating with a spoon to extract as
much of the juice as possible. Drain
off tho liquid and add a similar quan
tity of hot water, and, after beating
again very thoroughly, strain through
a cloth or very fine sieve, pressing
out all the liquid possible. This may
be used at once as a substitute for
milk, to be eaten with rice or other
grains, or to prepare puddings or
sauces. It Is excellent served with
granose flakes or eaten with zwie
back. If placed on the ice for a few
hours, the cream will rise to the top
