Niece and Nephew
of Uncle Sam
should be deeply interested in what he has said about soda
crackers, because they are the one food with which all of
them are familiar.
Uncle Sam has given out figures showing that soda
crackers are richer in nutriment and body-building elements',
properly proportioned, than any food made from flour.
This is saying much for common soda crackers, and
much more for Uneeda BlSCUlt, because they are
soda crackers of the best quality. They arc baked bettci
more scientifically. They are packed better more cleanly.
The damp, dus"t andodor proof package retains all the good
ness and nutriment of the wheat, all the freshness of the best
baking, all the purity of the cleanest bakeries.
Your Uncle Sam has shown what food he thinks best
for his people. His people have shown that they think
Uneeda BfSCUit the best of that food, nearly
400,000,000 packages having already been consumed.

CONCEIT OF THE SOMALI.
He I-'eelM He Im About the Mont Per
fect Man In the World.
Perhaps tho most remarkable charac
teristic of the natives of Somaliland Is
their unbounded, preposterous conceit.
Englishmen who know their language
havo been appalled by It. When wa-i
terlug his camel or his horse the Somali
encourages the animal to drink by
chanting to It In a monotone. It Is at
such moments of extemporary effusion
that the man shines In all his glory.
The subject matter may be the experi
ences of the day's march, the virtues
of the animal beside him, the charms
of his latest wife or his own prowess In
some bloodless tribal raid. Uy great
good fortune the following literal trans
latlon of one of these chants or songs
came Into m.v possession, and I Insert
It without any comment:
"Will you see a man? Then behold
mo! 1 am a Somali, as perfect In slzo
and form as Adam was after God had
breathed Into him his Immortal soul.
Look how beautiful my curly lmlr is
and how majestic I look when wrapped
from head to foot In my snow white
or Jungle colored tobe, although there
be sometimes only one pie (u small
piece of money) tied to It. My houso
Is the desert, and I am born a freo
man, free as the wind! I know nei
ther king nor mnster. I am us Adam
was my own master aud king. In tho
Jungle I tend my camels aud sheep.
My only labor Is to watch them feed.
In my kcrrler my wife, my dear slave,
docs all the manual work, while tend
ing my offspring, and woe to her If Bho
forgets to prepare my evening meal.
The Jedal (whip) shall then have Its
turn to make her remember for next
day. In such 11 state Is any man hap
pier than I?" Golden Penny.
Many Crime Acroitn ISiirIInIi Ilorder to
Have the Knot Tied.
A recent writer on the departed glo
ries of the original Gretna Green In
Scotland has this to say of the "priests"
who did the marrying for the hurrying,
anxious persons who came to them
from across the Knglish border: "The
men who took up the trade of marry
ing had often been previously engaged
In some other occupation. Some were
stoneinasous, some were weavers and
many were border Idlers and poachers.
Among these last It Is possible that a
blacksmith may at some time have
taken to joining hands Instead of Iron,
but no one of the calling ever rose to
fame In the marriage line."
Joseph Paisley, who llrst made the
marriage trade "hum," Is described as
nothing better than a drunken free
booter. Hut he was etiual to this In
cident: "On one occasion his services
were required simultaneously by two
couples, both In a desperate hurry, and
after the ceremony it was discovered

brides and bridegroo
. ,,.,,,, ,,.,,.1 ,
Ctl. AW Oil, Stlltl J. .
that, by a trilling mistake, the wrong
ooius had been unit
'Jest sort yersels.' "
Eventually the "Gretna priests" be
came so numerous, competition so
keen, that they waited on the English
border for the arrival of "customers."
None of them obtained a reputation for
riches, nor were they able to retire on
their earnings, but died In harness.
The usual prlco for celebrating a mar
riage was half a crown (3SMs cents), but
ono poor couple got off for sixpence,
and a still poorer couple for 2Vi pence.
How the Chinese Attract smd Them
Destroy Kvll Spirits.
Recently the Chinese residents of the
Straits Settlements had a great proces
sion, called "wangkang," to get rid of
a largo accumulation of evil spirits,
says a writer in tho Chicago News.
Ceremonies of this sort are held by
tho Chinese about ouco In fifteen years.
The plan Is to construct a richly deco
rated Junk, fill It with dainty eatables,
money, live animals, lncenso and other
tempting things and then to take It
about the city with music uud appro
priate singing and great pomp gener
ally. This causes the evil spirits to como
out to see what Is going ou. Heboid
lug the splendid junk uud Its rare con
tents, they crowd inside. Demons of
sickness aro especlully sought for and
After the junk has been sufficiently
paraded bo that It Is chock full of de
mons, It Is burned and the evil spirits
perish. Formerly the Junk was set
adrift on the ocean, but sometimes It
was stranded on some island or other,
causing great suffering to tho Inhab
itants thus exposed to tho uttacks of
the marooned spirits. So now the Junk
Is burned at the closo of each ceremony
of tho sort.
Tho Chinese In the vicinity of Singa
pore spent about $10,000 In getting rid
of their demons this fall.
"Oh, George, I don't think that now'
