Thoro nro also nervous disorders
that nro often termed love. A man or
11 woman gets run down, sees every
thing dnrk, hopes for nothing, alms
for nothing; then n person of the o
poslto sex approaches, sympathizes,
plays on all the overtaxed nerves
with n soothing Inlluence, which Is
studied ntnl deliberate, hut tho man
quafiB It blindly, as a BtifTerer drinks
brandy to ease pain without question
ing whether It bo Injurious or not.
We do not exnmlne the character of
the ono obtaining this power over us,
because wo are III, and our Illness con
trols us; wo seel: merely to ease the
Inward gnawing with ns little pain or
effort ns possible. Normal love tho
love of, a mentally and physically
Minnd person Is not half ho blind
as poets would have us believe. In
deed, at such a time I think the mind
Is actually critical. Characteristics
that tho world considers faults In tho
one we love may be particularly dear
to ns, they are nicks that correspond
to tho nfeks in our own nnture; but
iho individual is dissected ngnln and
again by tho unerring and ever bimy
blado of our passion. Evoiy quick
ened element in us pries and probes
to meaBiiro itself with the same ele
ment In the other; It Is the natural
mating of things of the many units
In the ono unit. This Is real love;
but tho other the other Is the cause
of nine-tenths of tho world's misery;
It Is tho creator of morbid genera
tions, the destroyer of correct deduc
tions, tho worst monnco to humanity.
Maude Uoosevelt, in l.lpplncott's
In ten years, said an English naval
expert n day or two ago, the control
of tho sea will pass from Great Brit
ain to tho United States. Uncle Sam,
It appears. Is building more battle
ships this year than John Hull.
Hence tho alarm of the English export
quoted nbovo. It Is impossible to be
lieve, however, that Ills fears nro gen
uine. Our Rrltish cousins have too
long n stnrt to be overhauled by Undo
Snm unless wo should Increase tho
number of our shipyards and spend
hundreds of millions of dollars In the
next decade turning out battle-ships
and cruisers. Tho truth Is thnt the
alarm expressed by our British cous
ins is part of their scheme to recon
cile King Edward'B subjects to heavy
taxation to maintain England's naval
supremacy. That is tho way tho Brit
on Is "bunkoed" into paying heavier
tribute to his government. Tho game
Is an old one, but tho British tax
payer has not yet seen through it.

Tho vacation season Is here. Ev
erybody who lnliors should tako a va
cation, hut many who seriously need
a rest of a week or more and can
well afford to pay handsomely for tho
diversion deny themselves of it year
after year. Tho man who takes a
-vacation is much moro vnluablo to his
employer than1 tho one who does not,
and tho average employer knows It to
be true. Ho who spends hla vacation
wisely returns to work greatly im
proved montnlly nnd physically and
both ho and his employer are ben
eficiaries. Keat and a chnnge of
scene work wonders. M this Is
especially truo of brain workers. If
tho brain Jb not given a rest it be
comes fagged and it soon requires n
stimulant, nnd very often tho use of
a stimulant becomes a habit nnd
wrecks tho UBor. Experienced alien
ists havo found that often when a mnn
takes to drink after years of sobriety,
or when ho turns suddenly dishonest,
he Is well along townrd positive In
sanity, tho result of fatigue. Con

Hundley Jones of Ooorglu was n sec

Hoard Air line. One night last week
he was riding on a handcar nenr Ren

charge of his dull duties. Three other
men were with him, climbing a heav

down upon them, grade and steam to

their action by quoting the old axiom
about self-preservation being the llrst
law of nature. But Jones did not de
pend upon axioms to Justify his law of
conduct; ho was the sort of mnn who
reckoned by nets. So he stayed where
he was.
It wns a time when the fraction of
n second was life. Jones saw this,
nnd saw also that to stop the train
was Impossible. Thoro was, In his
conception, only ono thing for him to
do, nnd thnt was to save the crew of
the freight at the probablo cost of his
own life. That he did. Calmly but
rapidly he stopped tho hnndenr and
threw It from the track and the train

the sake of their families. But llend

of whoso end they could be proud.
"Ho only did his duty?" Is the per
formance of one's duty so common

lightly. One or tho most famous or

Did the ancients smoke? It Is
strange that !,o slmplo a question hns
never been satisfactorily answered.
Herodltus mentions certain tribes thnt
became drunk from Inhaling the vnpor
of piles of burning fruit, but the only
evidences that we havo of smoking Is
found In the prehistoric pipes of wood
nnd clay that are occasionally un
earthed. But If the ancients smoked what, did
they smoke? It was certainly not to
bacco, which wo know Is a modern so
lace. Certain herbs wero Btnokod for
the euro of disease wo are Informed
by Pliny and other writers, but there
are doubts that smoking for pleasure

How often In rending we run across

ness of the marriage vow, but " Or
a mother say: "My children could
have moro money than I had when I

Can sclenco explain why tho cotirso

Cleansing Public Reservoirs.
Tho department ot agriculture Is ex
perimenting with a process of treating
ptiblle water supply with a solution
of copper sulphates one part in 1.
000,000 purts. The purpose of this
la to destroy certain forms of tigla
or plant growths, which so frequently
render wnter foul appearing and III
smelling, although the sauttaiy quality
or tho water Is not affected. These
giowths llourlsh best In the purest
waters, pressed through, sand HI ten,
nnd for this reason large storage ot
filtered water Is not advisable unless
the reservoirs are covered. As to the
effect upon the consumers, a person
drinking three pints of water per d:t ,
with I part to 1,000,000 parts,
would In a year consume but
seven to eight grains of sul
phate. As a mater of fact, how
ever, the treatment would not be con
tinuous. Two or three applications a
year would piobnbly autllce, aud be
sides this the sulphate would enter
Into combination with the organic lire
and would then bo precipitated. Cor
tnln of tho nlgae nro killed by solu
tions of only 1 pnrt In .1,000.000. but
It la possible that others will require
much stronger solutions. In this ease,
which remains to bo determined by
test, the reservoir mny be bhut off
from us during treatment, or there
may bo a supplementary process to
precipitate any copper sulphate re
