"That'i not poetry," remarked the scribe.
"No, but it true," taid Johnson. There
are numerous utterances that are true and
to the point, and one of them is, "When
war is near, and danger nigh, God and
the soldier is all the cry, but when war is
ever and all things righted, God is for

That was wrote long before the war,
but it has particular reft retire to the Unit
ed States government of today.

"The dead and absent are always
wrong, the living and present are always
right." That's what some of our sena
tors think todty in regard to their opin
ions in this subject. But a time will
come when they too will go. The mem
ories of those silent heroes "who are not
dead but gone before" will live as an
awakening reveille in the minds of every
honest man until the "lie down" is
sounded and their comrades join thsm
to answer the last "roll call" in a place
where all will be rewarded.
Meet boys and shake. Keep the wreath

The A. O U-W. Social.
From Friday's Daily.
Tho social last night given by the A.
O. U. W. lodges of this city, was a grand
success. The hall was filled with merry
making people, who indulged in card
playing, amusing rcercations, singing and
social chat. The evening soon slipped
iway nnd it was lat before all wcut
home. Refreshments wre served during
the evening. This social has suggested
the idea of quoting a litthi in connection

accumulations of the waste of (.- .
tem, I, is one's duty ti know the fact
and the con9eqencs thereof. Our good
old grandmothers knew for instance,
that the opening of spring was the most
perilous period of tho year.
Because then the blood stream is slug
gish and chilled by the cold weather, and
if not thinned a good deul and made to
flow qui' kly and healthfully through the
arteries and yeins, it is impossible to have
good vigor the rest of the yer. Hence,
without exception, what is now known
as Warner's Log Cabin Sarsaparilla, was
plentifully made and religiously given to
every member of the family regularly
March, April, May and June. It is a
matter ot record that this prudential,
preventative and restorative custom sav
ed many a fit of sickness, prolonged life
and happiness to a vigorous old age, and
did away with heavy medical expendi
tures. Mrs. Maggie Kerchwal Lexiugton, Ky.f
used Warner's Log Cabin Sarsaparilla
"for nervous sick headache of which I
had been a sufferer for years." Capt
Hugh Harkins, 1114 S. 15th St, Phila
delphia, Pa., says "it purified my blood
and removed the blotches from my akin."
Mrs. Aarea Smith. Topton, Berks Co.,
Pa- says she "was entirely cured of a
skin disease of the worst kind," by Log
Cabin Sarsaparilla. Bad sklo indicates
a very bad condition of the blood.
If you would live and be well, go to
your druggist today and get Warner's
Log Cabin Sarsaparilla and take no oth
r. there's nothing like it or so good,
and completely renovate your impared
system with this simpla, old-fashioned
preparation of roots and herbs.
Warner, who makes the famous Safe
Cure, puts it up, and that is a guarantee
of excellence all over the known world.
Take it yourself and give it to the other
members of the family, including' the
children. You will be astonished at its
health-giving and life-prolonging pow
ers. We say this editorially because we
have heard good things of it everywhere,
and its name is a guarantee that it is first
class in every particular.
Hydrophobia From a Calf's Bite.
Atlanta, Ga., April 6. On a farm a
few miles from Atlanta a Jersey calf,
owned by a man named Milling, today
developed signs of hydrophobia and bit
several other calves, also sheep .and
swine. A young son of the farmer,
while attempting to keep a pet lamb
from the mad calf, was severely bitten
on the arm, and from latest accounts his
injuries are fatal. Tho animals bitten
by the calf have sinco died of hydro
phobia. This is the first instance of the
kind known in Georgia.
Das Moijjes, la., April 6. The senate
today passed the house bill forbidding
railroads from blacklisting their employ
es. It makes an exception in the case of
employes discharged for gross negligence
or drunkenness, but providee a stern pen
alty for attempting to prevent employes
discharged for other reasons from obtain
ing situations elsewhere. It is designed
especially to cover the case of railroad
employes who are blacklisted for engagr

Efforts to Remove a General.
Matamoros, M-jx., April 5 A strong
effort is being made here by the state
party, acting through Gen. Pedro Hino
josa, minister of war, to secure the re
moval of Gen. Eulalio Vela, in command
here, and replace on this frontier some of
their partisans, among whom is Col. Vil
lareal, commander of the 4th infantry,
who is extremely unpopular with the
people, being a Texan by birth and also
an officer whose relations with the Amer
ican side of the river are exceedingly
bad, who is a desperate American hater.
It was under the practical rule of Villa
real that the Martinez revolution was al
lowed to gain strength and become of
somewhat alarming proportions, which
was put down by Vela. The latter gen
eral is in perfect accord with the Ameri
can authorities, has kept the frontier
peaceable, has put down, captured or
hanged or driven out gangs of bandits
who infested the frontier, stewing cattle
abducting prominent citizens and hold
ing them for raiuom, aad committing
acts of rampage. The frontier has not
been so quiet and safe sinco the Texan i
revo'uiion as now. aid the return to
power of men who so 1 ng protected a ,

Tornado at Sioux City.
Sioux City, la., April 6. During a
violent electric storm early last night, a
tornado passed over the city from the
southwest to the northeast. The fnnnel
cloud was seen by many and was accom
panied by a roaring noise. It only struck
in one place in tie extreme northwest
part of tlie city, pushing rftjddly over
the western auhurha. At the plaoe where
the cloi;d struck it picked up the resi
dence of Mark Modlin and hurled it to
the gtound in the rear of the lot. Mrs.
Modlin was seven-ly injurvd. The

at her weapons. Cloths and c jo Is, brooms
and brushes, scrubbing brushes ior the floor,
hair brushes for the wainscots, feather
brushes for the walls, tooth brushes for the
corner, geese wings for the stoves, bens
feathers for cleaning out the key holes, small
sticks of wood for poking out any unhappy
particle of dust which may bare got into the
cracks of the floor, white paste for the win
dows, red paste f er the hearth stones, emery
for the steel, and several other pastes and
polishes as tho occasion may require. These
are the implements a Dutch peasant woman
uses to clean out her cottage home. Dust is
her natural enemy, she is born into the world
to fight it, It is her mission, and she does po
more than her mother and f oremothera havs
done before her. No wonder that such m
home training turns out an exceedingly high
class of domestic servant; and yet, the Dutch
mistress grumbles. Such Is life.
A DUTCH INTERIOR.
A "Dutch interior," from a housekeeper's
as well as an artistic point of viov, is a in.v.t
interesting study. It is ouethiug to kuow a
country well by traveling through it, stop
ping at the best hotels, visiting all points of
interest, taking careful notes by pen and
brush of all worth recording, but it is quite
another experience and fully as interesting
to live among its people as one of themselves
to see how they live and think, manage and
eat; when they are conscious no looker on is
by, and that they need not adapt themselves
to any stranger's custom or fancy. This
latter bos been my good luck to experience,
and I con truthfully say that there are no
cleaner, more hospitable, kind hearted, do
mestic people in the world than the Dutch.
I mention "cleaner" first because with them
it comes first. What would become of a
Dutch woman in a world where there is no
dust is a Bubject for conjecture, and though
I look upon my visit to Holland as part of
the happiest time in my life, still my sincere
prayer is that my Dutch friends may never
visit me. I could never live up to their idea
of cleanliness; the mental strain would be too
Washing is not done weekly as in America,
but allowed to accumulate for weeks, some
times even longer, an unhealthy custom; but
in this as in many other respects the Dutch
can hardly be called a clean nation, from a
hygienic point of view. With them it is dust,
dust, and again dust.
Often the underservanta such as scullery
maid, nurse maid, etc., do not sleep in the
house. This gives more space and room for
the family. Those girls come In by the day,
sleeping at their own homes at night. All
servants in Holland dress extremely neatly,
generally in lilac print dresses, white mu&lin
caps, and large white aprons.
The same dress is worn in the street as in
the house. If the weather is cold, a shawl is
thrown over the shoulders. They do a good
deal of the household shopping. It must be
indeed delightful for the Dutch mistress to
have Betsey Jane all ready dressed to run her
little errands, instead of . having to wait an
hour or more while Betsey Jane curls her
"bang" and bedecks herself with cheap finery.
This a good arrangement for maid as well as
mistress, for with the former it breaks tho
monotony of the daily round, gives her a lit
tle blow of fresh air, besides the opportunity
of a slight flirtation with the butcher's boy
or the green grocer's assistant.
A HOUSEHOLD CUSTOM.
A strange household custom in Holland
is the custody of the "guest money" by the
mistress. Each guest is, as in England, ex
pected to fee the house servants. In Hol
land, this money is at once handed by the
recipient to the lady of the houso, who at
certain seasons of the year such as Christ
mas and Easter, divides it equally among
all her staff. Not a bad plan when one
thinks it over, but rather startling at first to
And now for Dutch food. All food is
good in Holland, all cooking excellent, beef
and mutton even better than in England,
vegetables in abundance. Butter is very
good cud plentiful and is used without stint,
but everything is spoiled by being served
cold. Rich dishes, which would be most ap
petising were they eaten piping hot, become
repulsive, indigestible masses of grease
when served from a cold dish on a stone cold
plate. During the whole of my stay in Hol
land I never once saw a dish covered or a
Cakes are a specialty with the Dutch.
Each town has one or more of its own, and
it was interesting to trace the ancestry of
many of our American ones. Waffles met
me at a kermes at The Hague. The koekje,
Which is to be found all over Holland and is,
in fact, the Dutch word for "little cake," is
actually and etymologically the ancestor of
the New England cookie. Doughnuts I met
everywhere, though I cannot imagine from
where they got their ugly name of "dough
put." In Holland tfiey are called spritsen,
and in French Canada, where they are a
Sort of national cake, they are known by the
name of croquignoles, and sometimes beig

The Zulus are a war like race, and their re

them to have an tetinctive knowledge of

In the native fights each man throws his
assagais at his enemy, catching his opponent's
on his shield, if possible, then throwing them
back again. Tchaka had his soldiers' assagais
cut nearly through at the base of the shaft,
so that although still strong enough to kill a
man, they would break if caught upon the
shield or ground, or upon the man falling
with one in his body; this expedient placed !
all the sound assagai in the bonds of his own '
men, yrhq then rushed vpon their foes stab-

A curious fact is that over 2,900 years bo-
