Allen S. Olmsted Wins in Court
The Foot-Easo Trade-Hark
Buffalo, N. Y. The Supreme Court has
granted a permanent injunction with costs
against Paul B. Hudson and others of
New York City, restraining them from
making or selling a foot powder whichi
the court declares is nn imitation and in
fringement on '"Foot-Kase," now so large-)
ly advertised and sold over the country.
The owner of the trade-mark "Foot-Ease,"1
is Allen S. Olmsted, of Le Rov. N. Y., and
the decision of this suit upholds his trade
mark and renders all parties liable who
fraudulently attempt to profit by the ex
tensive "Foot-Ense" advertising, in plac
ing on the market the spurious and sim
ilar appearing preparation involved in the
case. This the court declares was de
signed in imitation and infringement of
the genuine "Foot-EaBe" trade-mark rights.

SHAVE WITH HOT STEEL.
This Is the Advice of an Old Cutler
to Those Who Have Their
"The Old English Cutler" arrived
in New York the other day after au
absence of nine years, in which time
he has walked 19,000 miles between
the Pacific and Atlantic, honing ra
zors and grinding scissors,
"Whenever I hones a razor," said
fie, "I always give some advice with
it, free gratis, and I takes great sat
isfaction in knowing that I have
made shaving easier and more com
fortable for more than 10,000 men.
Most every barber will tell you how
to strop a razor, but it takes a cutler
to tell yo- how to care for your strop,
and how to get the best work out of
"A swing strop, canvas on one side
and horse hide on the other, is the
best. Always hold it taut, and draw
the razor lightly but swiftly from
heel to point. If you let the strop
sag, you will put a round edge on
the blade. Don't forget to cover your
strop, or put it away in a drawer,
after using, if it hangs in a bathroom,
near a window. The dust and grime
gets into it, and soon takes the edge
from your razor. Whether you keep
the strop covered or whether you
don't rub your open hand over the
two surfaces to free it from dust.
"But what I consider my most valu
able advice is how to do away with
shaving paper entirely and at the
same time Improve the cutting quali
ty of the razor's edge. Nine men
out of ten shaVe themselves' -in a
room where there is running hot wa
ter. Now, the way to get a.', 'most
gratifying result is this: Lather
thickly and well and let it remain on
the face half a minute before you be
gin to shave. If you have time, wash
it off. for with it will come the grit
and dirt -that you have loosened up
in the pores of the skin, and then ap
ply a second coat. It will ba as soft,
smooth and clean as new velvet.
"Now turn on the hot-water faucet
and let it run. Hold the razor unden
the stream until it is heated. Then,
take a slanting or diagonal stroke;
like a farmer doe3 with a scythe, not
a square pull, and you will be amazed
.to find how beautifully and easily the
hot blade cuts the beard.
"When it is filled with lather hold
it under the running hot water, in
stead of using shaving paper. That
will wash off the lather and, at the
i?ame time, heat the blade again.
Don't be afraid of taking out the tem
per. That would be impossible if you
put the razor in a kettle and boiled
it.' Try the hot blade and you'll
;neyer shave with the cold steel
CIGAR BAND FAD PENALTIES
The Collecting Habit Puts Smokers
to a ..Great Deal of An-.
"Would you mind taking the band
off that cigar carefully and give it to
me?" asked Westside of Rivers, as
they both "lit up."
"Sorry," said Rivers, according to
the New York World, "but I'm saving
them,, too. I was just about to ask
you for yours."
"So your little girl has the collect

now, having given up my old favorites
because she had plenty of the bands
of that kind. As soon as I get a dozen
or so bands of one kind she begins to
wish for a different sort, having
swapped all her duplicates with her
friends. Then I look for an unknown
brand, and the strange hand tickles

Whereupon there was an exchange.

THE AUDIENCE OBJECTED.
Confab in Pullman Car Stirred" the
Wrath of a Listening '
The name of Edwin T. Sanford, of
Knoxville, Tenn., was written on the
Willard "register the other day, "and
that reminds me of a story," said Col.
W. B. Jackson, now of New York, but
once . of the state above mentioned,
says the Washington Post.
"Several years ago Sanford and his
friend, Col. Saunders, both of eastern
Tennessee, were coming east on a
Pullman. It was a hot night and
sleep was impossible. They were in
the smoking room, and fell to talk
ing about state affairs. While thus
engaged on old, grizzled, gaunt man
came in, clad as befitted a torrid.night,
and began smoking. Saunders and
Sanford kept up their talk, and were
regretting how poorly their state was
lepresented at Washington. , They
were somewhat sarcastic in referring
to the senatorial and congressional
delegation, and declared that .younger
and more vigorous men were needed.
"'Look at our senators,' was re
marked. 'They are played out. Bate
is old and Harris is dried up and use
less' just then the old stranger in the
corner arose, and with gestures of a
prize fighter, began to abuse and
scarify the two citizens, who gaped
in wonder. When the irate stranger
subsided the two men exclaimed:
"Who. are you, to be so upset about our
conversation? . 4 -. .!'
" 'I am Senator Harris,' said the
stranger, in tones of thunder that
could be heard above the rumble of
the train, 'and I have a mind to throw
both of you out of the window.'
"Explanations, et cetera, followed,
and it transpired that neither Saun
ders nor Sanford had ever seen Sen
ator Harris. The old man grew af
fable, and often told the story on him
THEN HE BROKE A LEG.
Government Clerk at Washington
Found a Way to Utilize
The following story, illustrative of
the red tape that used to prevail in a
certain department of the federal gov
ernment at Washington, is told, says
Success, by. an official who began his
service there in the humble capacity of
"Shortly after entering upon the dis
charge of my duties," said the official,
"I witnessed a scene in the division to
which I had been assigned that aston
ished me to a degree. One day an el
derly clerk whose desk was near mine
.suddenly rose from his seat, dragged
jhis chair to a fireplace, and, seizing a
poker, attacked the offending piece of
.furniture with what appeared to be
maniacal fury. When he had broken
,a leg off the chair, his passion seemed
to be exhausted. He flung -the damaged
chair into a corner of the room and,
getting another chair, calmly resumed
his work just as if nothing had oc
curred. "When the time came to leave the)
office that afternoon, I ventured to ask
a fellow-clerk, who had been a witness
of the soene, what it meant. 'Is tbat
clerk,' I inquired, 'subject to attaaks
of that kind?'
"The clerk questioned smiled Indul
gently. 'Oh,' he explained, 'there was
nothing the matter with him. You see,
one of the castors had come off his
chair. This department will not replace
castors it repairs nothing less serious
than a broken leg. So Blank broke one
of the legs and now he will be able to
get the castor put on again."
COST OF MAILING SEEDS.
Estimate of Handling This Class oi
Matter Is Placed at
$34,500. : '
Postmaster General Cortelyou has.
supplied Representative Tawney, chair
man of the house committee on appro
priations, with a memorandum as to
the actual cost to the post office depart
ment of handling the seeds furnished
by the department of agriculture for
free distribution. The postmaster gen
"As nearly as can be estimated, the
cost of carrying a pound of this mail
matter varies from five to eight cents.
I have been informed that the aggre
gate weight of vegetable and flower
seeds distributed annually by the de
partment of agriculture under frank
Is 690,000 pounds. The estimated num
ber of packages is 7,300,000. Comput
ing at the lowest estimate five cents
a pound the cost of handling this mat
ter Is $34,500."
The postmaster general says that
while it is improbable any additional
clerks or carriers are employed solely
on account of this distribution, it is
nevertheless self-evident that the 7,300,"
jOOO packages clog the mails and take
up the time of a large - number of
jclerks and carriers that might be oth
erwise profitably employed.
Some' senators and representatives
were discussing the qualifications of
certain other members of congress for
leadership in the two houses. Apropos
of little or nothing, one of the sen
ators told of being at a dance one
-night, or at what was going to be a
jdance, but the musicians had not ar
rived. They scoured the town and
found a man who could fiddle. He
came over to the hall. "Are you a
flrst-class fiddler?" he was asked.
f'No," he replied, "I am not." "Are
you a good second-class fiddler?" "No,"
.he said, "I am not a good second-class
fiddler, but I'll tell you what I am. I
claim to be high up among the third
class fiddlers." , . , ,

doctor at Albany, but nothing they gave
