The suggestion contained in

right to the point if common belief
is correct. It-is- becjiming general
ly believed that railway officials
have heavy investments in Chicago
and St. Louis elevators, using their
positions with the railroads to
further their personal interests in
the grain business. It is possible
that this may not be true, but the

Philadelnhia Times: A little
boy who lives in Philadelphia recently-
went with his parents to
visit some relatives at Cape May.
They had occasion to go by water,
and while on the way his parents
noticed that he kept looking search
ingly down into the sea. At one
point on the route a large gutter
was iorraea in the sea, disclosing
the white belly of a great fish.
Thereupon the little fellow gave
utterance to a long continued "Oh!"
This brought his parents to his side
at once, and when asked what the
matter was: his answer was: "I'm
quite sure I just saw poor McGjintv
down there in his new white shirt! '
A new fountain pen especially

writes out a very innocent looking
agreement with an ink that fades

imperceptible motion he turns on
another kind of writing fluid and
hands it to the victim and gets his
signatnre in permanent ink. When
the argeement fades out a promis
sory note is written in find the job
is done. For a time this pen will
have as much work to do in the
city as in the country.

The Georgia melon growers have
encountered a new trouble. Last
season many farmers left the small
melons to rot in the fields after the
salable melons had been gathered.
The millions of seeds left upon the

The rats seem to have camped down
and now it is said that the fields are
honeycombed by their holes.
Life and health can be sustained
indefinitely on a diet of lean meat
and water, according to Professor
J. W. Good of the Manitoba medi
cal college. The servants of the
Hudson Bav company in the
Athabasca district and in the Mac
kenize river region depend entirely
on the natural food supply of the
country, some living on meat alone
and some solely on fish. Great
bodily and mantal vigor has been
retained on such a diet for periods
of twenty or thirty years, with
singular, freedom from indisposi
tion of every kind. Scurvy has
appeared only where salt meat has
been provided for winter use.
It is estimated at the War De
partment that if any foreign power
should tackle this country of ours
it could be confronted bv the

some little time to put that host
into the field; but to rush the
militia of Uncle Sam's potential
army to any threatened spot would
be a matter of but a few days. Of
this organized and equipped home
guard there are 109,469 men to
day at work in the numerous avo
cations of peace, to-morrow moving
by special trains to the defense of
sea-coast or border.

THE BLOOD IS THE L.IFE.
No portion of the human organism
has, within tho past few years, been
submitted to more thorough and intelli
gent examination, by medical scientists,
than the blood. The result of these in
vestigations has been to clearly demon
strate that the general health is more
dependent upon the condition of the
blood than upon any other thing.
In making a diagnosis, some modern
practitioners are not satisfied with
merely determining the temperature
of the blood: they test it by means of
the microscope and other appliances, to
ascertainrif any foreign bodies have.in
troduced themselves among its minute
corpuscles. Thus, for example, it has
been found that in persons affected
with gout, uric acid may always bo de
tected in the blood ; while the cause of
other disorders has been traced to tho
presence of germs, or microbes.
These discoveries have thrown a flood
of light on the causes of disease; and
physicians now, in the treatment of
many complaints, go directly to the root
of the evil by endeavoring to purify tho
blood of its contaminating poisons. For
this purpose nothing else has been found
so efficacious as the iodide of potassium.
But the best effects of this drug can
only be obtained when it is used in
combination with other things, such as
sarsaparilla, podophyllum, or yellow
dock; and Ayer's Compound Extract of
Sarsaparilla, being considered the most
skilful union of these ingredients known
to pharmacy, is therefore most highly
recommended by physicians.
Even if the iodides were not present,
the Honduras sarsaparilla alone, of
which Ayer's medicine is the extract,
would be sufficiently effective, in the
majority of cases, to produce the most
desirable results. But, "to make assur
ance doubly sure," and to greatly facili
tate the purifying process, the iodide of
potassium lends its powerful alterative
and detergent properties to the rest.
The distinctive value of Ayer's Sarsa
parilla is that, while it is quite as potent
for most purposes as the iodide alone, it
is safer in non-professional hands ; for,
by simply following the directions on
the wrapper, the patient becomes his
own physician. Hence this medicine
has long been recognized by leading
physicians and druggists everywhere ar
the standard popular blood-purifier.
