Open Air Exercise and Companionship
Will Do It.
The habit of blushing is almost in
variably a cause cf great annoyance to
its possessors. Very frequently it se
riously hampers them in the ordinary
affairs of life, for blushing is accom
panied by confusion of mind, nervous
ness and hesitancy. The two main
points in the treatment of shyness,
which is the great cause of blushing,
are, first, open-air exercise, and, sec
ond, the society of others. Open-air
exercise is good for all morbi ddisor
jers, such as excessive shyness, hhile
the social life makes for self-control
and that savoir faire we all seek to
attain; for the latter enables us to go
through life without betraying awk

sensitive people may find the cure a
lengthy one, but if they nreserv^re the

to accomplish the remedy will aid
them in acquiring control over their

Banker’s Hunt for Chickens Met with
Much Success.
A banker in a western city bought
some chickens of a ranchman and
told the man to deliver them at his
house. When be went home at noon
his wife met him at the door and told
him with great consternation that tho
man brought the chickens, he had
promised, but instead of putting them
in the henhouse, had left them on the
lawn, and they had all disappeared.
Forgetting his dinner, he started
off in no very amiable frame of mind
in pursuit of the missing fowls. After
scouring the neighboring alleys for
some time, he came back triumphant
ly driving the lost chicks.
When in a few days he met the of
fending ranchman, he demanded, se
verely: “What did you mean by leav
ing those chickens on my lawn the
other day? I hunted the neighbor
hood over for them and then could find
only eleven!”
“You did mighty well,” was the mild
reply. “I only left six.”—Grace M.

Benjamin Franklin’s Illustration of
Sound Business Policy.
The good policy of letting riches fly
to bring more back is quaintly illus
trated by Benjamin Franklm, while
postmaster general,1 in telling of the
American postofflce as it was before
the revolution. In his inimitable way
he says:
“The American office never had
hitherto paid anything to that of
Great Britain. We were to have
$3,000 a year if we could make that
sum out of the profits of the office. To
do this a variety of improvements
were necessary. Some of these were
Inevitably at first expensive, so that
in the first four years the office be
came about $4,500 in debt to us. But
It soon began to repay us and before
I was displaced by a freak of the min
isters we had brought it to yield three
times as much clear revenue to the
crown as the postofflce of Ireland.”
A Tussle with Coffee.
There is something fairly demoni
acal in the way coffee sometimes
wreaks its fiendish malice on those
who use it.
A lady writing from Calif, says: —
“My husband and I, both lovers of
eoffee, suffered for some time from a
very annoying form of nervousness,
accompanied by most frightful head
aches. In my own case there was
eventually developed some sort of af
fection of the nerves leading from the
spine to the head, f
”1 was unable to nokl my ncaa up
straight, the tension of the nerves
drew it to one side, causing me the
most intense pain. We got no relief
from medicine, and were puzzled as
to what caused the trouble, until a
friend suggested that possibly the cof
fee we drank had something to do
with it, and advised that we quit it
and try Postum Coffee.
“We followed his advice, and from
the day that we began to use Postum
we both began to improve, and in
a very short time both of us were
entirely relieved. The nerves became
steady once more, the headaches
ceased, the muscles in the back of my
neck relaxed, my head straightened
up and the dreadful pain that had so
punished me while I used the old kind
of coffee vanished.
“We have never resumed the use of
the old coffee, bnt relish our Postum
every day as well as we did the
former beverage. And we are de
lighted to find that we can give it
freely to our children also, something
we never dared to do with the old
kind of coffee.’’ Name given by Pos

1 There's a reason.
Vermont’s one state holiday, Ben
nington battle day, which falls on Aug.
16, was this year marked by the gath
ering in Burlington of more distin
guished men than have for some years
been assembled in the Green Moun
tain state. On that day there was ded
icated on the farm at one time owned
by Gen. Ethan Allen of revolutionary
fame a tower in memory of the hero
of Ticonderoga.
Ethan Allen Hitchcock, secretary of
the interior and a lineal descendant of
Ethan Allen was present as the official
representative of President Roosevelt,
and other prominent men in attend
ance were Vice President Fairbanks,
Secretary of the Treasury Shaw, As
sistant Secretary of the Navy Darling,
United States Senator Redfield Proc
tor, formerly United States Senator G.
F. Edmunds, Govs. Bell of Vermont
and "McLane of New Hampshire, and
James D. Hancock, president general
of the National Society, Sons of the
American Revolution.
Mrs. Charles W. Fairbanks, wife of
the Vice President, represented the
National Society, Daughters of the
American Revolution, of which she is
a past president, and prominent Ver
monters from all parts of the state
swelled the attendance.
The rarm on which the tower has
been erected contains about 300 acres
and is located within the limits of the
city of Burlington, about three miles
from the City Hall. Before the time
of the revolution it was owned by a
stanch Tory, who on account of his
disloyalty to the then embryo state of
Vermont was forced to leave the coun
try. His estate was subsequently con
fiscated by the state of Vermont and
the property turned over to the land
commissioner of the state. By him it
was sold to Gen. Ethan Allen, and he
was living upon it at the time of his
death in February, 1789. The farm
then became the property of Gov. Van
Ness and was known as the Van Ness
farm for half a century.
In 1902 the farm was purchased by
Mayor W. J. Van Patten of Burlington,
who tendered to the Vermont Society,
Sons of the American Revolution, a
rocky ridge known as "Indian rock,”
rising some 300 feet above the rest of
the farm, with about 15 acres of ad
joining land, upon condition that an
observation tow'er of stone should be
erected on the rock, as a memorial to
the Vermont hero and patriot.
The society accepted the offer and
raised the needed funds among its
members. It is a massive structure,
24 feet square at the base and 40 feet
in height, and will remind traveled
visitors of the monument to Sir Wil
liam Wallace, the Scottish patriot, on
Abbey Craig, at Sterling. Scotland.
The tower commands a wide pano
rama, comprising the full sweep of the
Adirondacks; I^ike Champlain from
Cumberland Head on the north to the
Four Brothers and Juniper islands and
Split Rock mountain on the south; the
valley of the Winooski, winding
through fertile intervales, and the
Green mountain range on the east,
presenting views of unsurpassed
beauty toward every point of the com
pass. (The tower will be a conspicuous
object from the lake and all the sur
rounding region.
The name Indian Rock has been giv
en to the spot by reason of the legend,
which is said to be well established,
that it was the point of outlook for the
Indians for long ages before the white
man came to this country. The nat
ural picturesqueness of the location is
enhanced by the rugged rocks which
comprise the bluff, and which give a
wildness to the whole scene which one
would hafdly expect to find so near
the city.
The date selected for the dedication
of the tower was the 128th anniversary
of the battle of Bennington. The cere
monies comprised an imposing mili
tary parade, consisting of a larger
body of regular cavalry, artillery and
infantry than has been seen in Ver
mont by any one now living, and the
National Guard of Vermont, composed
of 12 companies; an oration by Vice
President Fairbanks; a poem written
for the occasion by Vermont's gifted
poet, Mrs. Julia C. R. Dorr, an histor
ical address by the Hon. Robert D.
Benedict of New York, presentation of
the land by W. J. Van Patten, presen
tation of the tower by former Gov. U.
A. Woodbury, chairman of the build
ing committee; presentation of flags
by Miss Mary Roberts, regent of the
Society of the Daughters of the Revo
lution; acceptance by Dr. H. D. Hol
ton, president of the Vermont Society,
Sons of the Revolution; salute by a
United States battery; congratulations
by Secretary Hitchcock, representing
President Roosevelt; by Gov. Bell,
representing Vermont; by Congress
man D. J. Foster, representing Bur
lington; by President-General James
D. Hancock, representing the national
Society, Sons of the Revolution, and
by Gov. McLane, representing New
Hampshire; music by several bands
and vocal selections.
The state of Vermont has many
times paid tribute to the memory of
Ethan Allen, one of the most marked
official acts being the erection of a
monument over his grave in Green
Mountain cemetery in this city. The
Legislature of 1855 appropriated
money for the purpose.
The base of the pedestal is eight
feet square on the ground, and con
sists of two steps of granite, on which
rests a die of solid granite six feet
square, in the four faces of which are
set panels of white marble bearing
several inscriptions which pay tribute
to Allen's valor. Above the pedestal
rises a tuscan shaft of granite 4 feet
in diameter and 12 feet in height.
Upon its capital, on a base bearing
the word Ticonderoga, stands a heroic
statue of Allen, 8 feet 4 inches high,
modeled by Peter Stephenson, a Bos
ton sculptor, now deceased, and cut
in Italy. The monument is protected
by a fence of original design, the cor
ner posts of which are iron cannon
and the pales muskets, with bayonets,
resting on a base of cut granite.
The statue was paid for by private
subscription, and was unveiled July 4,
1873. The hero is represented as de
manding the surrender of Fort Ticon
deroga on the morning of May 1«
Another marble statue of Allet
stands at the entrance to the state
capitol in Montpelier. Ten years age

morial tablet of bronze on a bowlder

is located the tower which is to be ded
icated next Wednesday. The tablet

How Col. Morrison Kept Cool.#.
Col. William Morrison and his wife
were once staying at a hotel, when in
the night they were aroused from
their slumbers by the cry that the
hotel was afire..
“Now, my dear,” said the colonel,
“I will put into practice what I have
always preached. Put on all your in
dispensable apparel, and keep cool.
Then he slipped his watch into his
vest pocket and walked with his wife
out of the hotel.
When all the danger wa« past he
said: "Now, you see how necessary
it is to keep cool.”
Mrs. Morrison for the first time
glanced at her husband.
“Yes, William,” she said, “it is a
grand thing, but if I were you I
would have put on my trousers.”
Much Benefit in Reform Spelling
Millions of Dollars and an Im
mense Amount of Time Could
Bs Saved by Common Sense
Method of Writing.
Reform spelling would save the
English speaking world more than
$100,000,000 annually, say the scien
tific orthographers, if it were to be
substituted for the traditional way of
putting letters together. More than
four billion written communications
pass through the mails in a single
year, and one-sixth of all this work
is superfluous, because reform spell
ing would do away with it. A child
in the public school has to spend two
years before it can get the hang of
our present irregular spelling, and, not
counting the time lost, this is an ex
pense of several million dollars in
teachers’ salaries, and it is an obstacle
for the immigrants who settle here
to learn the language.
The average time allotted to spell
_ __ - - _ ____—
ing, reading and dictating in the
school is 32.2 per cent of the time de
voted to general instruction. A child
attending school for eight years ex
pends 2,320 school hours in these ex
ercises. At least 720 hours devoted
exclusively to spelling could be done
away with entirely in the school life
of a child if reform spelling were in
troduced. 'The saving would be enor
mous. The current spelling of Eng
lish contains too many superfluous
and misleading letters, which greatly
increase the cost of reading and writ
ing and printing. The removal of the
silent “e’s” would save 4 per cent ol
all the letters on a common printed
page, and the removal of one conson
ant of each pair of duplicated con
sonants would save 1.6 per cent. In
the New Testament, printed in reiorm
orthography, one hundred letters and
spaces are represented by eighty
three. As far as printing and paper
goes, a $6 book could sell for $5.

Secrets of the Indian Trail.
The Indian trail has immense value
In the wilderness. It may be the
thread on which a man’s life hangs
—throughout vast stretches of the
North It was the only line of com
munication. No one man laid out
these primitive paths. They are the
result of the joint judgment of genera
tions of men. They are a product of
centuries of travel by the red men,
who camped in the trackless wilder
ness many days in order that the
trail should go right. These trails
crossed the range at just the proper
point. The white hunter sees this; the
engineer follows the hunter, and the
palace car rolls after. The white
man’s trail is laid by the compass.
The Indian laid his trail by the con
junction of the stars and the moun
tain peaks. It approaches a hillside
with caution and follows a lakeside
with leisure. There is no mark of the
ax on such a trail. It is never direct,
but always indirect. It alarms noth
ing—it woos every wild thing. It
seems to love grass and water—it
lingers by the side of sunlit streams
and keeps close to the ripple of
waves on the beeches of woodland
lakes. All that nature has she shows
to him who follows the Indian trail.
She hides her choicest things from
the railroad, the turnpike and the
lane; to tread the trail is to be made
reterend of nature.—From the Na
tional Magazine.
Sketch of Baron Komura.
Baron Komura is a diplomat of the
purely Oriental type, suave and un

black-eyed and slender. His counte
nance is wrinkled like old parchment,
his jaw pointed and firmly set, and his
moustache black, scanty and stiff. His
bristly hair is streaked with gray. He
is well versed in diplomatic usages
and especially with the effective round
about diplomacy characteristic of the
Russians.—New York World.

Street Gamin Understood.
There are many touches of nature
which make “the whole world kin.”
That the little street gamin is con

fluence some presumably wiser people
is shown by an anecdote told by a
contributor to The Atlantic.
It was early autumn, and I wajs go
ing through a city street, carrying a
large and beautifully colored branch
of leaves. A small, dirty street boy
stopped me with:
“Oh, give me one!” The look on
the little chap’s face was unmistak
ably appreciative.
I picked out the very smallest leaf,
feeling exceedingly shabby all the
time, and gave it to the boy.
“I know I’m terribly stingy,” I said
“Never mind,” replied the little fel
low in a big, masculine sort of a way
“I know just how you feel.”

Typhoid fever is sometimes called ner

fever the nerves are always profoundly
disturbed, and wheu it is over they are
left so sensitive that the patient has to
be guarded against all excitement. In the
tonic treatment then demanded, regard
must be paid not only to building up flesh
but also to strengthening the nerves. A
remedy that will do both, make sound
flesh to repair waste and give new vigor
to feeble nerves, is the most convenient
and economical. Such a remedy is Dr.
Williams’ Pink Pills for Pale People.
One proof of this is the experience of
Mr. Charles Worth, of East Vassal boro,
Maine. He says: “ I had a severe at
tack of typhoid fever late in the fall
which left me very weak aud debilitated.
My heart palpitated, my breathing be
came difficult after the least exertion and
there was numbness in both hands. I
Buffered in that way for fully six months.
As I did not grow out of it, did uot in
fact see the slightest improvement as
time passed, I decided to use Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills as I knew of some cure*
they had effected in cases like mine.
‘‘Almost as soon as I began taking
them I could see decided improvement
and after keeping ou with them for
several weeks I was completely well. I
consider Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills a most
valuable remedy, and I am in the habit
of recommending them toothers afflicted
as I was.”
When the nerves ache and trem

only way to feed them is through the

Pink Pills. They are absolutely guaran

First English Guineas.
The guinea was first coined in
Charles IPs reign, together with the
five-guinea, two-guinea, and half
guinea pieces, and came to be so call
ed because many of the new coins
were minted from gold brought from
Guinea by the company of Royal Ad
venturers of England trading into
Africa. The royal order to the mint
added that these pieces were to be
marked “with a little elephant in such
convenient place as you shall judge
fitting, which we intend as a marke of
distinction and an encouragement
unto the said company in the import
ing of gold and silver to be coined.”
A large Minneapolis manufacturing
concern, The Pillsbury Co., are em
ploying a unique method in advertis
ing their product, “Pillsbury’s Vitos.
The Meat of the Wheat,” in appealing
to the “Common Sense” of the Amer
ican public.
Their assertions are modest as com
pared to most of the cereal food ad
vertisements of the last few years,
but they carry a ring of truth. Their
reasoning is certainly rational; here
is some of it;
"We all believe that Wheat is the
best cereal the Creator has given
Pillsbury’s Vitos is nothing more
nor less than the white heart of this
wheat kernel, cut out by steel ma
