FEEBLE OLD LADY
Has Strength Restored By
Mrs. Michael Bloom of Lewistown,
Pa., who is SO years of age, says: "For
a long time I have been so feeble that
I have had to be wheeled around in
an invalid’s chair. I had no strength
and took cold at the slightest provoca
tion, which invariably settled on my
lungs, and a cough would result. My
s<m learned of the cod 11 .er prep
aration called Vinol, and procured a
bottle for me. It built up my strength
rapidly, and after taking three bottles
I am able to do most of my work, and
I can walk a quarter of a mile easily.
Every aged or weak person wjio re
quires strength should try Vinol. I am
delighted with what it has done fur
As a body builder and strength crea
tor for old people, delicate children,
weak, run-down persons, and after
sickness, Vinol is unexcelled. If it
fails to give satisfaction we will re

PIGEONS AND THE WIRELESS
Birds Are No Longer Used by British
Naval Authorities to Carry
Wireless telegraphy has displaced
the pigeon service in the British
navy, and the birds are being sold
at auction in London. Bristol and
Groat care has been taken over
tin1 selection and breeding of these
birds and they have been subjected
lo severe training, both afloat and
ashore, and in the air, in all kinds of
weather. The maximum speed of a
homing pigeon is about 2,150 yards
a minute, so that wireless telegraphy
i- much quicker, and though mes
sages, like pigeons, are liable to be
intercepted, it must be acknowledged
that the odds are in favor of the
wi re loss.
It is doubtful whether, with all
the training pigeons have hud, there
has been any increase of the speed
of flight during the past 1,000 years.
With a stilf tail wind birds may fly
quicker than 2,100 yards a minute,
and there are records of birds cover
ing over 1.000 miles at an average
speed of a fraction over 20 miles an
hour, but an expert is inclined to
think that pigeons have, on the
whole, deteriorated, despite the con
tinuous training, the flying clubs,
and many competitions which exist
to improve their breed and stamina.
CONNECTICUT BIRO PRESERVE.
Despite the 1‘net that reports have
been circulated of late that the
commissioners of fisheries and game
had soon red 2,000 quail from Okla
homa and would place them on
Terry island, near Suffield, Commis
sioner George T. Mathewson said re
cently that nothing has been done
about buying any quail as yet. It is
true, however, that the use of the
island, which contains about 135
acres, has been obtained by the com
mission and it is very likely that a
preserve will he established there.
I’ntil 15 or 16 years ago the island
was inhabited by Clinton Terry, and
the house is still standing, and it
was from this place years ago that
a band of Second Adventists put on
the ir ascension robes and waited in
vain for the end of the world.—■
OFF WITH THEIR TITLES.
Mattie Sheridan, toastmistress of
the Hungry club, has a great weak
ness for royalty and titles. She has
as many titled people as possible at
her Saturday night entertainments.
I'lie baroness d’Bnzus is often pres

Something or Other, the daughter
of Liliuokalnni. The Countess von
Booze I'arra is also a guest at inter

PIGS THAT POINT.
Vmerican shooting men aro much
exercised over a story that a sporting
farmer named Knittel, who lives
near Brounsburg, St. Louis, has
succeeded in teaching a pig to point
game, and shoots over it.
Our American frionds have evi
dently forgotten the famous “pig
pointer” which was trained to stand
winged gome and rabbits by the
brothers Toomer, royal keepers in
the New Forest. This “pig pointer”
was a black sow whose intelligence

A YOUNGSTER ON SNAKES.
A (leorgia youngster turns in this
composition on “Snakes:”
“Snakes is all over—but mostly
in spring an' summer. A snake can
swallcr a bird, but it is hard for a
grown man to swallcr a snake story.
They live most everywhere—snakes
do, but Ma says you find more of
’em where the whisky distilleries is.
I’a sees 'em often, but mostly in the
winter season, but Ma says be is tal

the snakes should be killed.”—At

other day: “There is one con
ductor on the elevated to whom I
should like to extend mv personal
felicitations. You arc. of course,
i quite familiar with the salutation,

“The other < veiling, however,
when mv car from Brookline stopped
at the Bovlston street station the
conductor called out to the passen
gers: ‘Please leave by the nearer

on my ears like gentle rain falling
on green grass, bringing a sense of
rest and satisfaction. I was so
agreeably surprised that when I left

at the conductor’s cap and noted it

OKLAHOMA'S SINKING LANDS.
About 25 acres of prairie land
lying between Keystone and Olive,
in the ('reek nation, lias sunk near

is now covered with water. Many ot
the farmers are moving their houses
and herds and a general state of
The whole country around this
land seems to be sinking gradually
and the people of that section are
daily expecting something to hap
pen. It is the supposition of sur
veyors and oil and gas men and
others familiar with such conditions
that the sinking is caused by the
great gas pressure taken from be
neath the land.—Kansas City Star.
“I have a suggestion." stated the
friend who wants to help. “They sa\
that l'aft has no front porch."
“Couldn't you utilize that in a
joke? Put in that he is going to
build a front porch; in other words,
he stoops to conquer.”
The press humorist scowled and
“That's a curious looking mule
you’re driving." remarked the man
who was whittling a pine stick.
“Yassir." answered Mr. Erastus
Pinkley. “He is kind o’ cur’us.”

“What’ll take foh him? Say,

BETTER TO INSTILL TRUTH
Parents Should Remember That Child

In matters of truthfulness, as
with all other virtues, a child is in
fluenced unconsciously by his sur
roundings and by the example of
those older than himself. In an at
mosphere of truth a child gains a
respect for truth, and regards false
hood as a despicable shift. It is oth
erwise where children hear their par

and so groat i- the reverence of little
children for their parents that they

TEMPERANCE AND BASEBALL.
TTnl Chase, the famous first base-j
man, was advocating teetotalism
among ball players. He argued
well, and in the midst of his argu
ment lie told a story.
“Leroy Vigors, a friend of mine,”
he said, “turned up to play in an
amateur game with a skate on.
“When Vigors stepped to the bat
he smiled a silly smile and said tn
“'I see three bats an’ three balls
here. What am I to—hie—do?’
“‘Hit the middle ball,’ said the

“‘Darn ye. Vigors,’ said a coach,

more than 250 hours. According tc
that, it will be possible in two years
