Heart Strength
Heart strength or Heart Weakness means Nerve
Strength or Nerve Weakness nothing more Pos
itively not one weak heart in a hundred is in it
self actually diseased It is almost always a
hidden tiny little nerve that really is all at fault
This obscure nerva tho Cardiac or Heart Nerve
simply needs and must have more power mora
stability more controlling more governing
strength Without that the Heart must continua
to fail and the stomach and kidneys also have
these sama controlling nerves
This clearly explains why as a medicine Dr
Shoops Restorative has in the past done so much
for weak and ailing Hearts Dr Shoop first sought
the cause of all this painful palpitating suffocat
ing heart distress Dr Shoops Restorative this
popular prescription Is alone directed to these
weak and wasting nerve centers It builds
iCstrengthens it offers real genuine heart help
If you would have strong Hearts strong di
gestion strengthen theso nerves re establish
them as needed with
Dr Shoops
One Surprise That Was the Forerun
ner of Another
That was a good old comedy bishop
who one fine day entered n large jew
elers establishment In Regent street
London to make an extensive purchase
of valuable presents He selected
them with great care as regards their
artistic value but quite regardless of
cost The proprietor and his assist
ants buzzed round his lordship The
selected valuables were packed In sep
arate parcels at his suggestion neatly
tied and sealed and he had just taken
a scat In the private oflice of the pro
prietor and was feeling In his pocket
for his check book when two men who
had been peering In at the glass door
leading to the street walked up the
shop and stood behind the bishop
They were plainly dressed sharp look
ing men and thus bluntly addressed
the jeweler
What has this man been ordering
The bishop looked up saw the men
turned pale clutched the sides of the
chair dropped his glasses and looked
as if he would bolt Before he could
stir however the handcuffs were on
his wrists
Bishop indeed said one of the
men lie was a colonel yesterday
Here bishop come along to Vine
street Bishop indeed na ha
Well thats a good un And turn
ing to the astonished jeweler he con
tinued Just copped him in time sir
lucky for you Oh by the way you
might get one of your assistants to
bring round these parcels he has se
lected We must enter them at the
police station We have a cab at the
door We have been tracking the
bishop all the morning
Without a word the bishop fol
lowed the detectives into a cab and
all three got in as the assistant came
out with the valuables
Here said one of the detectives
through the window place those in
here they will be safer and you get
od the top with the driver
It was not far to Vine street but as
usual the traffic was congested in Ox
ford circus and the cab had to halt
occasionally It was however soon at
the police station The assistant jump
ed off the drivers seat and opened the
The cab was empty Strand Maga
the lives of his parents corroborate
the theory that presentiments of good
and evil do come to persons unawares
I will mention two of them
late at night was returning to his farm
from the little town of Malton He
had stayed unusually late When he
reached the farm all was quiet Re
moving the harness from his horse he
proceeded to the carriage house and
hung it in its place
He came out and closed the door As
he did so he heard the harness fall It
was very dark He went back into the
house and found the harness still hang
ing in its place The same occurrence
took place agaiu ne went bade again
and found it in its place
When the third time he heard the
sound of falling harness he did not
go back
Several weeks later his barn burned
and it happened that the same har
ness was in the barn loft a valuable
set He attempted to save it The
staircase burned behind him and he
was compelled to jump for his life
from a window His previous experi
ence came to him vividly He scved
the harness but at the risk of his life
Another vivid incident I recall Avas
my mother fitting by the fire with a
sick baby The nurse was present
too and both were wide awake Her
father appeared to her and advised her
as to the babys treatment and other
family matters lie vanished as quick
ly as he had come The next day she
heard of his death London Tit Bits

In our little town in a western
state said Brown there was a half
witted sort of fellow named Bill
Willcc One day Bill took to the rail
road tracks and never reappeared for
about six years In the meantime his
wife Bettie took in washing and sup
ported the family One day Bill came
back He went around to the kitchen
door softly opened it stuck In his
head and said Bco Bettie Bettie

New York Times
Messina furnished early in the nine
teenth century a new word for the
German language It was from there
that oranges were first shipped to
Germany and the fruit was known
for a long time after its advent as
apfel aus Messina apple from Mes
sina After many years apfel aus
Messina degenerated into apfel Mes
sina and finally it became apfel
sine the name by which oranges are
still known among German speaking

Fast and Furious Rules From Early
Morning Till After Midnight
Boxing day is a great institution in
England The day after Christmas is
Boxing day so called because in the
old days it marked the occasion of the
actual giving of Christmas boxes Now
it is a national holiday Besides being
the last in the year it has to suffice
Londoners at all events until Easter
Monday Its a great day In Cockney
land and the east end crowds to
Hampstead heath the picturesque open
space in the northwest of Loudon
All roads lead to the heath Soon
after daybreak the procession begins
Fully loaded traps and donkey barrows
are the principal items in the vehicular
traffic but the majority are on foot
singing and shouting for the holiday
Ere yer are Sir Enery shouts a

water into your face Ere yer are

the habit of giving prospective custom

Some one accepts the inviting offer
and a rush is made to pay the admis

A company of traveling actors is as

next tent all made up in their war

the house soon fills
Outside you will find every form of
outdoor amusement in full swing

At last the journey home is begun
everybody happy and tired yet not too
tired to link arms the men wearing
the girls feathered hats and pearl but
toned coats and the girls wearing caps
and hats and wondrous masculine
jackets All are singing different
songs but every now and then they
break forth in unison with popular
songs of the moment In the saloons
they drink beer out of one pewter and
swear undying love and friendship till
the voice of the proprietor it now be
ing 1230 in the morning and closing
time is heard calling Time gents
please and a final start is made
This may answer the question why
the average Cockney worker always

When Helen aired four for the first
time accompanied her mother to
church she was given some money for
the collection box it was carefully
explained to her that this money was

Helen sat patiently through perhaps
a third of the service when she star

A Rather Roundnbout Wcy to Pvova
tho Proposition
Men suy women are uuscIb women
say women are cuts Lot U3 pauee a
moment and reason upon this thing
If women are angels however that
does not seem to be the proper start
ing point Let us try again
If angels are cats but no that 13
hardly reasonable for angels have
wings and cats do not fly We must
begin again
If women are cats but that Isnt
possible for cats do not talk and how
could a dumb animal express an opin
ion in words of a woman Whatever
cats may think they never say a word
about a woman while women well
women are not cats
Now let us return to the first propo
If women are angels they wouldnt
say women are cats Angels dont
talk that way
Once upon a time a man married a
woman He said she was an angel
the women said she was a cat Happy
man not to know tho difference be
tween an angel and a cat
Men say women are angels and by
this token women say angels are cats
Therefore angels being cats cats
must be angels and both bejng the
same women are women
Which is precisely what they are

That Portion of Northern
Spain Got Its Name
The country now called Mexico was
not so called till 1S10 when the revolt
against Spain began Up to independ
ence the country was called New Spain
and was divided into the same number
of provinces -as Spain each with a
name of a province in Spain with the
prefix of new but New Mexico was
nnr Innlndod in this division It cot its
I name In this way
In 15G1 Francisco Ibarra was in
charge of an expedition of exploration
into what is now northern Durang j
and southern Chihuahua and discov
ered an Indian village near where San
ta Barbara now stands in which the
houses were whitewashed and the peo
ple made and wore cotton cloth rais
ing the cotton in the neighborhood
He wrote an account of his discovery
to his brother in the City of Mexico
telling him he had discovered una
nueva Mexico a new Mexico another
Mexico meaning that he had found
another town like the City of Mexico
and thereafter all this portion of north
ern New Spain was known as Nueva
Mexico that is New Mexico which
name It has retained though nov
much reduced in extent Las Vega--Optic
Muskrats For Meat
Of all animals that supply meat to
man the muskrat has been the most
abused and the lenet understood savs
the Baltimore Star Its name had bred
in the public raiud a prejudice that
has been almost unconquerable but
truth will prevail in spite of fate As
a fact the muskrat is one of the neat
est and most delightful of animals It
is a crank in cleanliness It dines with
the care of an epicure It cats only
the whitest and tenflerest morsels
And its flesh has qualities that can W
compared only to terrapin Indeed
there are good people along the Chesa
peake where all the best things live
and grow who find In the well served
muskrat satisfaction that is equal to
the diamondback Only the ignorant
and the prejudiced think differently
and they may be educated
Ripening Bananas
It is a familiar fact that bananas
are imported green but it came as a
new thing to a visitor to the banana
district in Colombia to find that ba
nanas are not permitted to ripen on
the plant even down there They are
cut and set to hang somewhere until
they wither ripe as the phrase is
Bananas do not have to be yellow to
be ripe That is cnly the color of the
skin when it has dried up To the
person who is accustomed to eating
bananas ony when they are yellow it
seems odd to peel them when they are
green and find that they are perfectly
ripe within and fit to eat New York
The Prisoners Retort
It is a prison chaplains duty to give
a departing prisoner good advice and
to exhort him to be a decent and hon
orable man in the future In the
course of one of these interviews a
chaplain said Now my friend 1 hope
youll never have to come back to a
place like this
The prisoner looked at him thought
fully and then asked I say chaplain
you draw a salary here dont you
When the chaplain replied in the af
firmative the prisoner remarked Well

keep coming back youd be out of a
