A Steady Trade.
There were only three houses In the
"ittlu hamlet 0:1 Cape Cod , but an orator
from a nearby summer colony was
minded to rouse the civic conscience
by declaring that trade was the begin
ning of wisdom. "And , " said he , "I as
sure yon that it is not capital half so
much as it is initiative that is needed
in a place like this. "
The three citizens spat colk tivcly

The Great White Shark.
The man eating fish par excellence is
the great white shark. It is otherwise
known by the name of man eater. Oc
casionally specimens are sjeen on both
coasts of The United States , though its
more customary habitat is in tropical
waters. This friehtful creature attains
a length of nearly foity feet , and it Is
able to swallow a man whole. This
fact is proved by an experiment which
sailors are fond of making when such
a shark is captured. The skull being
preserved , they amuse themselves by
crawling ene after another through the
distended jaws. It would be unsafe to
do this , however , when the head has
been freshly cut off , because under rueh
conditions the jaws will snap together
fiercely for some time afterward if
anything is placed between them. The
skull of a big shark , by the way , is al
ways salable owing to the demand by
museums and curiosity hunters. A
young sea lion weighing a hundred
pounds has been found in the stomach
of a white shark.
All life on the earth appears only in
connection with one substance a wa
tery jelly closely related chemically
to egg albumen and this substance is
known as protoplasm. Every living
thing is built of this one substance-
jellyfish , trees , whales , men every
thing that lives. Biologists have suc
ceeded in doing some wonderful
things. Five or six starfish eggs have
been fused into one. from which a
monster starfish has been produced.
Other starfish eggs have been separated
into eight pieces , from which eight
dwarf starfish have been brought forth.
Crabs can be made to order , with the
largo claw on either the right or the
left side , and flatfish have been pro
duced with the color pattern on the
underside. New York American.
A man was coming up from Chun-
chen province with a sum of money
which had been subscribed for the pay
ment of the public debt. lie was met
by robbers. " who took the money and
started away. lie called after them
that the money was a subscription to
( he fund for the raising of the debt ,
whereupon they came back and handed
him the money and begged his pardon
for their mistake , and they gave him
30 yen extra as a contribution on their
own part. lie asked their names to
publish in the papers , but they said
they did not want to obtain notoriety
in that way and declined , but said they
were glad to pay something toward
helping the country . Korean Xews.
Why Shells Fly Straight.
Many people wonder wny. the cone
shaped projectiles in their flight
through the air do not wabble , but
drive straight ahead. This is easily
explained. Hound the bottom of the
shell Is a narrow band of ccpper which
varies in width accoruing to the size of
the projectile.V Being made of soft
metal , this band is cut by the steel
rifling of the gun on the shocTc of ex
plosion. This action causes the shell
to revolve with lightning rapidity , with
the result that it keeps steady during
its flight through the air. London
Looks riasy , bit : Try It.
Did you ever notice a jeweler wear
ing his magnifying ginin : one eye ? It
looks easy , but try it. The inexperi
enced citien : who tries to look at some
thing with such a glass is sure to close
one eye. lie can't look at the magnified
object wifh the other eye opened , as
can the jeweler. This s only another
evidence that one must learn ail the
details of one's trade. What is easy
for the experienced jeweler is all but
impossible for the novice. New York

This water has in itself health-giving
properties that peculiarly adapt it to
the brewing of a delicious , palatable
beer. During the past fifteen years
STORZ BEER has .become famous
because of the use of this water. No
other one ingredient entering in o the
manufacture of beer has so much to
do with its general excellence as pure
water. Discriminating people who
want nothing but the best when eat

LIFE COCOA is a NUTRITIVE AND DIGESTIVE PERFECT
PURE FOOD BEVERAGE and is a compound of Chocolate Essence ,
Malt , Hops and Kola Nut andis highly recommended by doctors
where tea and coll'ee are prohibited.
A family may be starved while bein < overfed , if the foods are
indigestible or unsuitable. Such foods are not assimilated , and they
not only fall to supply nutriment but cause indigestion and poison
the system , starving the nerve centres and causing depression , lan-
gour , amemia , and untold suffering.
if , instead of rushing to drugs and stimulants to counteract
these results , the housewife would provide a sure and safe prevent
ive , and we say unhestatingly the SAVIOUR 'is ' LIFE COCOA she
would add enormously to the health and happiaess of her household
and obviate a vast amount of suffering and failure , for , after all ,
health happiness and success in life are convertible terms , and they
all depend on a properly nourished brain and body , or , in other words ,
on a proper choice of food. Such a preventive is afforded in LIFE
COCOA which is not only an exquisite beverapein itself , but is also
a perfect food , and is not only itself digestible , but insures the com
plete digestion and healthy assimilation of the starchy foods that
are almost invariably the cause of indigestion with its endless pro
cession ol pains and disorders.
LIFE COCOA needs no advocate but the plain truth merit
and merit alone and , therefore , we will let the truth spealc , and at
once produce the evidence LIFE COCOA which commands the at
tention of physicians , hospitals and all thinking classes.
