A Laay Liver
May bo only a tired liver , or a starved
liver. It would bo a stupid as well aa
'fiavago thing to beat a weary or starved
iinan because ho lagged In his work. So
in treating the lagging , torpid liver it is
& great mistake to lash it wilh strong
cjrastic drugs. A torpid liver is but an
'indication of an Ill-nourished , enfeebled

Organs of digestion and nutrition. Piit
them In working order and see how
quickly your liver will become active.
Dr. Picrco's Golden Medical Discovery
has made many marvelous cures of "fiver
trouble" by its wonderful control of the
organs of digestion and nutrition. It re
stores the normal activity of thp.stomach ,
Increases the secretions of the blood-mak
ing glands , cleanses the system from poi
sonous accumulations , and so relieves the
liver of the burdens imposed upon it by
the defection of other organs.

Opinions of Great Papers on Important Subjects ,
P 300 old spellings are to be tabooed in the
President's .first order , how many will the
second order Include and how much of the
language will there be left in its received
former old-fashioned people to console
themselves with ? An uneducated man's vo
cabulary contains altogether , according to
the authorities , only some 300 or 400 words. Italian
operas require not over 800 words , and the system of
Egyptian hieroglyphics has but 800 symbols. Well edu
cated persons of fair intelligence use , it is said , not over
3,000 or 4,000 words. The Bible of 1G11 commonly
known as the King James or the Authorized Version
without the Apocryphal portion , has under 0,000 words.
Poets , dealing much under abstractions , employ a larger
vocabulary. Milton found 8,000 words necessary for
the composition of his poems ; Pope , 11,000 , and Shalc-
epeare , 15,000. These ure large figures , compared -with
the prosy talk of the "average man , " who gets along com
fortably with 500 words.
Everybody knows or understands a great many words
which he never uses. "Dictionary words" include a long
list never heard in speech -and rarely seen in print. The
number of words , including scientific and art terms ,
which are not obsolete , that are used by good authors ,
may reach 100,000. Dictionary makers score a point on
their rivals by Introducing in large numbers rarely used
technical terms derived from Latin or Greek. Slang ,
colloquialisms , hybrids , special coinages and semi-natural
ized words may be used to pad the list Indefinitely. Early
editions of Webster had but 70,000 words , but Worcester's
has 116,000 , Webster's Unabridged , 118,000 , and Web
ster's International Dictionary 140,000 , while the Ency
clopedic Dictionary contains 180,000 words , or , if com

THE FAMILY PEW.
OME of the most vivid of the emotions which
thronged upon the summer pilgrim to the
old home were those which awaited him In
the family pew of the old meeting house.
As he took his seat there , and heard the
familiar note of the organ and the clear ,
thin voices of the choir , the years melted
away , the faces changed , the new carpet faded into the
well-remeinbered colors of fifty -years ago and he was
In truth a child again.
His thought went back to the time when he was al
lowed to sit on the footstool as a concession to his short ,
restless legs. lie tasted again the luscious raisin which
found Its way from grandmother's pocket to his mouth ,
and sniffed the pungent southernwood of the Sunday
nosegay in a neighbor's silk-initted hand.
It was in that pew that he first realized to the full
the dignity of trousers. It was there that he was proudly
conscious of the approving glances of his friends on his
first college vacation. He recalled in a flash the intoler
able length of the sermon on that Thanksgiving day !
The pew has sad memories as well as sweet ones. Most
poignant of them is that of his mother's funeral and
the awful Sundaj- after it , when no one could bear to
take her empty place and the emptiness of it seemed un
endurable. Close upon that time followed the Sunday
when he made solemn profession there of the- faith she
had loved so well.
Then came the days of the great war , when the meet-

ing house blazed with flags and thrilled witli the music

Suddenly out of this dreamland he Is called by the

LL the signs point to an eventual electrifi
cation of the transportation business of the
country , at least except in the case of very
long hauls through thinly populated re
gions. Will this transformation bring with
it the practical impossibility of inlle-a-ruin-
ute travel ? There seems considerable justi
fication for an affirmative answer. It has been amply
demonstrated that the electric locomotive is capable of at
taining and maintaining far higher speeds than this.
On the Zossen experimental road in Germany speeds of
over 125 miles per hour were reached.
The chief difficulty in the way of operating a com
mercial line at such enormous velocities aside from the
question of cost has to do with the safety of passengers.
The rails and cars can be built strongly enough to stand
the wear and tear , motors competent to push them at this
speed are available , and methods of transmitting current
to the motors from an overhead conductor have been per
fected. In fact , the realization of a ten-hour train be
tween New York and Chicago seems to require only the
deviseuient of a protective block system which would
render practically impossible the terrible fatalities liable
to result from collisions and derailments at these speeds.
* * * If the rolling stock could be made accident
proof , and the road bed sufficiently straight and solid to
do away with the danger of derailment , there seems noth
ing in the way of a mile-a-inlnute line , but its" cost. How
much heavier this would be than in the cape of a fifty-
mile per hour service is a question on which the early
construction of such a line seems to depend. New York
HIPPLE'S HYPOCRISY ,
damage effected by the late Mr. Hippie is
not confined to his depositors. The ex
I posure of a hypocrite always endangers the
faith In human nature of the grudging and
the weak. Mr. Hippie was able to deceive
his creditors by parading his religion , by
practicing with convincing ostentation the
qualities that usually indicate character and prin
ciple. But this proves nothing except Mr. Hip
pie's - success at simulation a success which is
not unique , but which , on the other hand , it would be
contemptible to consider universal.
Speculations as to our neighbors' , our rivals' and our
enemies' sincerity will always be one of the interesting
occupations of mankind. Yet it 5s a courageous man
who makes rigid rules , who is prepared to condemn or
affirm on general principles. Mr. Hippie refrained from
the Sunday newspaper he now proves a hypocrite , but
that makes the Sunday newspaper neither better nor
worse. Unfortunate indeed would it be to weaken one's
capacity for belief In one's kind because a knave had a
measure of success. Chicago Post.
