SEVEN YEARS AGO
Rochester Chemist Found a Singu
larly Effective Medicine.
William A. Franklin, of the Frank
lin & Palmer Chemical Co., Rochester,
N. Y., writes:
"Seven years ago
I was suffering very
much through the
failure of the kid
neys to eliminate
the. uric acid from
my system. My
back was very lame
and ached If I
overexerted myself in the least degree.
At times I was weighed down with a
feeling of languor and depression and
suffered continually from annoying ir
regularities of the kidney secretions.
I procured a box of Doan's Kidney
Pills and began using them. I found
prompt relief from the aching and
lameness in my back, and by the time
I had taken three boxes I was cured
of all irregularities."
Sold by all dealers; 50 cents a box.

a vine stripped of leaves was original
The childish amusement of riding a
cane la of great antiquity. It was
practiced by 'the children of Greece
and ancient Rome.
The game of hide and seek Is an
other yeuthful pastime of ancient
origin. H came from Europe about
the beginning of the seventeenth cen
tury. The spinning of " tops, a favorite
amusement among children in the
spring, also came from the Greeks.
Records show that this kind of fun
was In vogue at the time of Vergil.
Leap-frog is mentioned in the
works of both Shakespeare and John
son. It has been played by children
from early times, and is still a fa
vorite game with boys.
The flying kite derived its name
from its originally being made to re
semble that species of bird called a
kite. The amusement of kite flying is
about two centuries old in Europe.
Probably It originated in China,
wheve, so records tell, the practice
of flying kites is very ancient.

years. I had kidney trouble, and. In
fact, tett badly nearly all the time.

remove from the blood all poisonous
materials. They must be active all the

times when they need a little assistance.
Peruna is exactly this sort of a rem

disaster by rendering the kidneys ser

tevteav their own burdens.
Backed His Belief with Courage and
Fortune and Overcame All
George Westinghouse seems to flour
ish on opposition. When everybody
says it is impossible to do a thing, he
does it. They said the brake was Im
possible, but for nearly 40 years it has
been controlling the movements of
trains in all countries, writes Arthur
Warren, in Success Magazine. They
said that the alternating current was
impossible to use in commercial prac
tice. But Westinghouse used it. Then
they said that it was a dangerous thing
to have in a community, and it would
kill populations. "They" were the ex
perts. And they tried to have laws
passed forbidding the use of this death
dealing current. In the flies of the
North American Review of about 20
ypars ago may be found a well-writter
and forcible article supporting these
pessimistic contentions and warning
tho country against the impracticabil
ity and danger of the alternating cur
rent The article was written by
Thomas A. Edison. Westinghouse
backed his belief with his courage, his
fortune, and his inventiveness; he em
ployed experts of his own and brought
others from abroad, and before long
the alternating current was every
where in use for the transmission of
electrical power over long distances.
He made it practicable and conquered
Hew much temperament has to do

frame of his the red blood flows and

MUST FURNISH PASSES.
Railroads in France Issue Annual
Tickets to Senators and
With the pass-bribery nuisance
France deals in summary fashion.
Railroads have no chance to win the
good will of French deputies and
senators by surreptitious favors.
Every French senator and deputy has
by law an annual pass on every rail
road. This the government compels
the railroads to furnish, says Every
body's Magazine. v Then the govern
ment deducts for the pass ten francs
a month from the pay of the senator
or deputy. The railroads get nothing.
That is the extent of that perform
ance. The passes are provided to af
ford the senators and deputies op
portunity to acquaint themselves with
conditions in the country and every
part of it.
The president of the republic must
be transported on public business at
the expense of the railroads. That Is
the law, and the service entails no
kind of obligation on the president's
part. Even if the companies were to
furnish him with a special train of
beautiful cars that would mean noth
ing, because they are obliged to trans
port him with their best devices any
way. Why She Wouldn't Pay.

English Railway Accidents.
The general report of the London
board of trade on railway accidents in
1904, states that the danger of railway
traveling has been reduced to such a
point that in 1904 the chances against
a passenger being killed in a train
accident in the course of a given jour
ney were more than 200,000,000 to 1
The risks incurred by railway serv
ants, especially those concerned with
th movement of traffic, are of course
much greater. In their case there is
an element of danger which cannot be
cwminated though Its effect may be
minimized by the adoption of suitable
appliances and safeguards. The in
creasing use of such appliances is hav
ing an appreciable effect, but it is
claimed that the carelessness engen
dered by familiarity with dangerous
conditions appears to be responsible
for so many accidents that it is un
reasonable to expect any marked re
duction in' the total number of acci
dents to railroad servants.
His Superstition. .

How the Former Originated and on
the Making of Various Frozen
Sherbet is a modern evolution of an
ancient cooling drink common in the
east from the days of the crusaders.
Then, as now, it was iced and made
from fruit juces slightl acidulated
with lemon or tamarind juice and
chilled with snow. By and by came
European traders to the land of the
rising sun, who first enjoyed ( sherbet
au naturel. Then, enfeebled by the
climate, they added alcohol to the
original thirst quencher, but still
drank it cold, chilled by snows. Re
turning north, it occurred to some wise
traveler to alter the temperature ,so
he added boiling water to the mixture
of water, sugar, fruit juices and alco
hol, producing thereby our modern
"punch." The difference between a
water ice and a sherbet is one of tex
ture or body, the sherbet being thin
ner. Parfaits, biscuits and mousse3
are whipped cream with or without
eggs. They are not stirred while freez
ing. In parfaits and biscuits the sugar
and water mixture is cooked until it
spins a thread, and if eggs are used
the sirup is slowly beaten into the
yolks or whites.
Water ices are fruit juices sweet
ened and frozen. When making an ice
cook- the sugar to a sirup before add
ing the fruit juice and water. The
quantity of sugar must depend upon
the fruit employed, whether it is sweet
or acid. In making mousse a little
gejatin is often added to give it body
when removed from the mold, as it is
frozen without stirring. A table
spoonful of granulated gelatin is used
to a pint of cream. Mousse, parfaits
and biscuits are always molded, usual
ly in individual forms.
Abroad the term "ice" is applied to
any frozen dessert, but in this country
It usually means water ices. Ice cream
is divided into two varieties Phila
delphia and Neapolitan. The ordinary
(Philadelphia) ice cream is made with
cream, sugar and flavoring, and the
Neapolitan with custard of different de
grees of richness. Both are stirred
while freezing. In making Philadel
phia cream scald half the cream and
whip the remaining half. To freeze
the cream raw gives a rough and
grainy ice cream. For Neapolitan
cream a boiled custard is the founda
tion. Be careful to scald the milk, and
cook it with the yolks of the eggs first,
then add tlie whites, beaten stiff, and
cook again. When cool, add the cream,
beaten stiff, and the flavoring. A good
rule for custard is four egg3 to one
pint of milk and one pint of cream.
CARE OF REFRIGERATOR.
Soon as Anything Is Spilled, Wipe It
TTp, Keep Pipes Clear, and
Plenty of Ice.
Essential to the proper care and use
of a refrigerator are these three
things: Clearing out the waste pipes,
instant removal of anything spi.led,
ana a full supply of ice. If the com
partments in which the food is kept
be wiped out carefully once a week, no
crumbs, drops of liquid, or particles of
food being left to accumulate mean
while, there will be no need of other
Once a week let the ice supply run
low; then remove the ice, wash the
flour under the rack upon which th!
ice rests, take out trap and removable
drain pipe, and, with a cloth fastened
to a rod or wire, clean out these with,
a strong solution of sal soda. Pour the
same down the remainder of the waste
pipe, making sure that the pipe is
cleaned as far down as can be reached.
Keep the ice compartment filled
with ice; a large body of ice keeps
better than a small one and insures
better circulation of air. Keep the
doors shut. Keep milk in closed bot
tles or in a compartment by itself;
also butter, as they quickly absorb the
flavors of vegetables and other strong
foods. Chicago Tribune.

golf enthusiast who plays a good game,

"was a man out in Cincinnati, who had
a passion for the game, but who com

for Scotch highballs that was the won

"His theory was that there should
be a drink eerver on every tee, and
ho worked it by means of an army of
caddies. One afternoon he came in

UMB WASTED WITH ECZEMA
Suffered Untold Agonies Doctor
Said It Was the Worst Case Won

"I used the Cuticura Remedies for
eczema. The doctor said it was the
worst case he ever saw. It was on
both limbs, from the knees to the
ankles. We tried everything the doc
tors knew of, but the Cuticura Rem
edies did the most good. I was
obliged to lie with my limbs higher
than my head, for the pain was so
terrible I could not walk. I suffered
untold agonies. One limb wasted
away a great deal smaller , than the
other, there was so much discharge
from it. I found the Cuticura Reme
dies very soothing, and I still keep
them in the house. I am very thank
ful to say that I am cured. I found
the Cuticura Remedies all that you
say they are. I hope that you may
be spared many years to make the
Cuticura Remedies for the benefit of
persons suffering from the torture of
skin diseases, such as I had. Mrs.
