I "Chancre" to De "Ladylike. " The governors of the New Yorlc stock exchange have issued an order that hereafter there shall be no run ning on the lloor. The new rule does not please tlie brokers , who fear that the dearest tradition of the exchange , noise and hurly-burly , is threatened. It is protested that further reforms in tuis direction will make the exchange - change such a "ladylike" * affair that It will no longer be one of the pic turesque sights of the great city. Springfield Republican. If ? ; BABY TORTURED BY ITCHING. Rn.sh Covered Face and Feet Would . Cry Until Tired Out Had "Cradle Cap , " Too Speedy Cure by Cnti- cura. "My baby was about nine months old when she had rash on her face aad feet Her feet seemed to irritate her most , especially nights. They would cause her to be broken in ber rest , and sometimes she would cry until she was .tired . out. I had always used Cuticura iSoap myself , and had heard of so many 'cures by the Cuticura Remedies that I thought I would give them a trial. The 'improvement ' was noticeable in a few \ \ hours , and before I had used one box of the Cuticura Ointment ber feet were well and have never troubled her since. I also used it to remove what | ls'"known as "cradle cap" from her head , and it worked like a charm , as ! t cleansed and healed the scalp at the ! same time. Now I keep Cuticura Oiiit- jment on hand in case of any little rasher or insect bites , as it takes out the in- fflammation at once. Perhaps this may jibe the means of helping other suffering ibabies. Mrs. Hattie Currier , Thomas- ton , Me. , June 0 , 1906.

IIEI E appears to be a tendency these days' to put off the Question of marriage until/pne has reached the age which might weir be called the "age of indiscretion."Decrepit bachelors totter to the altar to exchange the vows of matrimony with acrid spinsters where once two youthful lovers stood. It has been said , with reason , perhaps , that the ten dency to postpone marriage has grown'up with the in creased cost of living and the desire of the man to attain financial independence before requesting a woman to share his lot with him. But there is another reason. In these days no man is so old at any given age as bis father was before him. To-day the young man of 25 is looking backward rather than forward. He is more engaged in regretting the good times of his college ftdays than in mapping out his future. Nothing tends more to the wak ing of the responsibility in a young man than marriage. It is the natural order of things that every'man should take under his protection and care one woman. For her ' he works , for ber be plans and for her he lives. Jour well-groomed , well-fed , well-bred bachelor of 50 may impress you as one who is leading a useful life. lie may be a cog in that great machine known as the world of commerce. He may be an eminent member of the bar or a leading member of the medical profession. But he has disregarded the greatest law of nature. Marrying late in life is a decided mistake. It is shown by the records of the divorce courts. One marries in youth because one feels the need of a kindred spirit on this little journey to the grave. One marries hi old age through whim or wheedling. It is given to man to love and live but once. If we miss this , why live at all ? Des Moiiies News. A NEW FARMER'S UNION. IORMER attempts to unionize the fanners of the United States haye generally ended in politics and disaster. The Grange and the Farmers' Alliance , while they lasted , had some power , but they passed away as soon as politicians began to control them. The "Farmers' Union , " recently born in Texas , and now numbering nearly 1,000,000 members , is organized on different lines. Instead of trying fo force down the prices of goods they buy , its members aim to get better prices for what they sell. They aim , by cut ting out middlemen in both buying and selling , to get the best possible prices for farm products. The new "Farmers' Union" is allied with the labor organizations of the various States and with the Ameri can Federation of Labor. The union is strongest as yet in the South and West , but if present gains continue for a year there will be 4,000,000'organized farmers in America , or nearly 50 per cent of the entire farming population. This is perhaps the first time that farmers have en tered the ranks of union labor for the avowed purpose of forcing up prices. The theory of the new union is that if workingmen , in all'branches of industry , receive high wages they can pay higher prices for farm prod ucts and will consume mqre of them. Th ? farmer and artisan thus pool their interests. The main purpose of the Fanners' Union is to make prices for farm products. The farmers have learned , by repeated experiments , that they can beat grain and NIAGARA IN BRAZIL. tt mMu'KJM.'yl.i.i.xiiy./ . , . . - ' ' , < f f S * ff * * - ' ' ' ' ' - t' * ; CATARACTS OF THE IG UAZU.

False teeth are shipped n this country to the rcmcte cor- of the earth. They are to be id in the mouths of Japanese , Chl- . Hindoos , and even , it is very like- i . cotton speculators at their own game. When prices are low , they can , through organization , hold back their crops until normal prices again prevail. Even with par tial organization -they have done this repeatedly in the South. Another aim is to establish a system of exchange by which surplus crops of one scvction may be shifted to other sections where there is a shortage , without giving all the profits to middlemen. The principle is to corner the market on the farm , and not in boards of trade. Chicago Journal , A CONSTITUTIONAL WEAKNESS. I HE Constitution of the United States may be , Gladstone said , the most perfect instrument of government ever devised by man ; yet the most ardent patriot , if lie is both intelligent and sincere , will admit that it lias its lit tle weaknesses. One flaw , well known to students of po litical history , has come into new prominence through the action of the San Francisco school board in assign ing Japanese children to separate schools ; namely , the possible inability of the national government to deal with the matter. Unless it can be shown that this action is in violation of some treaty agreement with Japan the government will be helpless. The treaty of 1S94. appar ently secures to Japanese in this country the commercial rights and privileges of the most favored nation. The inability of the government at Washington to re dress international wrongs , when the wrongdoer is a State of > the Union , has been the cause of serious diplo matic embarrassment in the past , and will undoubtedly cause dilliculty many times in the future. The case of the Italians who were lynched in New Orleans is still fresh in memory. Foreign governments demanding redress of grievances are not satisfied with a statement that the national gov ernment is powerless , that the police power is vested in the States , for they do not deal with States but with the nation. The ability of a State to do with impunity things which may direct the enmity of a foreign nation against the whole United States is a source of weakness , not of strength. Youth's Companion. UTILITY OF POLAR BESEABCH. T will have to be admitted that even in the world of science and of statesmanship opin ions differ as to the utility of modern ex ploring expeditious into the extreme north and south , although the weight of opinion among scientists would perhaps lean to the view of the Pearys and the Amundsens and the Abruzzis. Among these , no doubt , the love of adven ture and the ambition to be the winner of "the last great geographical prize which the world has to offer" are potent motives , but so it must be remembered was it the case with the explorers of three and four centuries ago. In the latter case commercial grain also entered as a moving force , but for all that their achievements were one of the chief inspirations of the New Learning and aroused the spirit of enterprise and daring that founded empires and discovered new worlds. So far as tiie past is concerned it will not be disputed that the deeds of the voyagers into tlie unknown were worth all they cost. They helped to teach men habits of close observation and to realize that all- facts concerning the earth were related. Philadelphia Ledger. VICTORIA FALLS ON ZAMBESI.
