Come to the city of beautiful parks , clean streets , fine buildings , huge fac tories , immense jobbing houses and hos pitable people. Spend your time during the Annual Fall Buying Season where you can bring your families and combine business with pleasure. The recent laws in Wisconsin , Iowa , Illinois. Minnesota , Nebraska , Missouri , and neighboring states , by which pas- leiiger fares are reduced to two cents a wile , are of great advantage to mer chants in this territory who wish to conip to Milwaukee. After August 15 , 190 , merchants may buy a regular tick et to Milwaukee at a rate of two cents n milo ( the lowest rate now given for any occasion ) and will not be required to secure certificates or be restricted to certain dates.

Some important experiments on the preservation of ripe fruits by means of formalin have recently been carried out at the Jodrall laboratory , Kew , says the Luiiuoii Globe. ii the fruit is one -which is eaten without peeling , as the straw berry or raspberry , it is , first of all , J Immersed for ten minutes in cold wa ter containing 3 per cent of commercial formalin. It is then taken out , and allowed to remain five minutes in cold water. If the fruit is one ofwhich the skin or rind is not eaten , the latter treatment is omitted. It was found that damsons thus treated kept nine days , Victoria plums five days , black currants five days and red currants four days longer than fruit not so treated. Pitted or slightly diseased apples thus treated were found to keep sev eral weeks longer. It is pointed out that the spoiling of ripe fruit is often due to the various bacteria and fer ments occurring-on their surfaces. The development of these is prevented by the formalin. It is 'suggested that the use of formalin may render it possible to bring certain perishable ripe fruits from distant countries. > Her Sweeping- .

How dear everything is when you want tobuy , and how cheap wften you want to sell ! Shortly after her marriage a woman Is apt to realize that Jier vanity has been all In vain. The President uses no stronger ex pletive than "By George ! " And he smiles when he uses It , too. "There were fools in Noah's day , " says a Washington paper. Stillwe never heard of one of them rocking the ark. Sweden has an organization called the "Damrnklub.Its members are women exclusively , and it was prob ably named by their husbands. Lt is reported from Paris that Count BonI de Castellane and Mme. Gould may be reconciled. Has Bonl promised for a larger allowance to be good ? Perhaps , aftar all , spring this year was only trying to escape from the mollycoddle class. However , It came very near landing among the nature fakers. Several years of crop failures In suc cession might give the people of this country a faint Idea of what tkp fam ine-stricken districts of China are suf fering. A student of ihuman nature claims that nobody can lie with the hands open. Presumably > he has also noticed that It is difficult for a man to tell an untruth with his face closed. The story of the fond father iwho , being without scales to weigh his new born heir , borrowed the Iceman's , and was astonished to find that the Infant weighed forty-five pounds , is good enough to be true , if it isn't. The eldest son of the Prince of Wales has joined the Koyal Naval Col lege , and it is cabled from London that he will be treated exactly as the other cadets are , being restricted to 25 cents a Aveek pocket money. The sons of some of our millionaires will be likely to de cide that it must 'be a good deal of a hardship to be a prince. Itinerant 'booksellers ' on the Bast Side in New York always find a market for anaiiuals of etiquette. The foreign ers , who crowd the district , are anxious to learn how to toeliave in the free so ciety of America , 'and eagerly read in structions on eating soup , when to rise and when to sit down , what to say and ivhen to say it. Some medical expert announces ev- > ry few months that Americans eat too much. Such a man said in a lecture before a medical school class the other day that there is as much "nourishment In a slice of bread and butter as in three slices of lean beef , or in an egg and a half , or in sixteen oysters , or in two and a half apples , or in two ban anas. Although bread and butter is nourishing , most of us like to vary the diet with something of higher flavor , tvhether It is nourishing or not The fire losses of the United States and Canada , as recorded by the New York Journal of Commerce , aggregate $04,500,000 for the first three mouths of this year , contrasted with $54,700- 000 for the same period last year , and $56,720,000 for the first quarter of 1905. This Is not particularly favorable for an easy and quick recovery by the fire Insurance companies from the unprece dented losses of last wear growing out of the San Francisco disaster. The country Is making no perceptible prog ress In its mastery of the problem of scandalously excessive waste by fire. How to get enough qualified teachers for its schools is a problem which con tinually perplexes New York City. A member of its board of education re cently introduced a resolution instruct ing the superintendent to ascertain If teachers cannot be obtained from oth er cities. He said there are three hun dred vacancies. With salaries begin ning in the lowest grades at six hun dred dollars a year , and increasing at the rate of "forty dollars for each year of service , the pay is much better than that offered in smaller towns" ; but it costs more to live in New York , and one does not .get so much for .one's money in the way of pleasant human intercourse as in the country. In the acquittal of Judge Loving , at Houston , Va. , of the murder of young Estes , advocates "of the "unwritten law" are finding a great deal of satis faction. It should be remembered by them , however , that while the unwrit ten law was pleaded in justification of Judge Loving's act his counsel saw fit to couple with his plea that of emo tional insanity wJiich was the basis of the jury's verdict Therefore , It does not seem that advocates of the unwrit- taz law have much cause for the satis faction they express. Judge Loving's acquittal may yet prove to have been a matter of sentiment more. than of justice. The judge had been in his better days a conspicuous political fig ure and a social factor In his county. He had friends everywhere , and almost as many in adjoining counties as In his own. The crime of which he was charged was caused by representations which always appeal most strongly to men of the South ; yet those represen tations remain questionable , the prose cution not being able to introduce im peaching testimony. ' A learned English physician , Sir James Crichton-Browne , comes forward to tell you that you eat too much. But you know that already. Your own stomach has told you so many a time. Yet you have gone on heedlessly , just as though you were put here to live to eat , rather than to eat to live. Eating is largely a matter of habit almost as much of a habit as drinking whisky , smoking a pipe or sleeping several hours a day. Neither whisky nor to bacco Is necessary to the well-being of any man. Neither Is ten hours' sleep. No more are three meals a day , espe cially in hot weather. Is it any wonder that you fret and fume and grumble at the heat when the mercury gets up into the 90s , when you go around with your stomach distended an-1 sagging with a lot of unnecessary food ? What good does it do you to fill up on beef steak , potatoes , pie nnd pudding and to go around sweating like a carthorse , when you could get along with one-half or one-third of the food which you crowd into your stomach on a hot day ? Yes , what good does It do you ? The human stomach has been compared to a furnace , which burns up food as a lo comotive burns up coal. But the care ful fireman never overloads his engine , though his tender may be heaped up and running over with coal , but you overload your stomach simply because there is an abundance of food on the table. The result Is that you are dull and stupid afterward , and are com pelled to slow down In your work , just as an engine would do if It were choked with coal until there was no draft to consume it You think you are gener ating energy when you are only Invit ing discomfort Gentle reader , and still gentler purchaser , allow us to suggest a little plan tcTyou. Try two meals a day for a while. It cannot possibly hurt you. You may lose a little avoir dupois at first , but you will experience a joy in living such as you have never dreamed of before. STAH BEHIND THE CUB-TAUT. Besides Technical KnorrledRre She. Must Possess Diplomacy and Tact. The star lady who now comes from the front of the house , feeling her way to the stage with the box-office gentle man guilding her footsteps through the dark atid the assistant stage manager yelling to the electrician for "house lights for Miss X " this star lady has learned Ite necessity of watching that unruly member , ' her tongue , and also of picking her friendships with un erring aim , says a writer in the Book man. Repression , diplomacy , instinctive judging of men and women , are some of the unadmitted qualities that make a star. It is not all bursting genius and technical knowledge of the stage. She must be a diplomat and a business wo man. If the company Is small , as a rule , all other members are presented to her. Many of them she may know , and she moves from one group to another - j other , recalling old associations 'and laughing over old-time escapades. The head of a company is no snob. She may conduct herself before her people during the working hours with dignity and reserve , she may confer with the leading actors , showing them much deference - , erence , while with the smaller members - bers she may have very Tttle to do , but in her friendships she gives herself great leeway , and the girl with whom she is most intimate out of the theater is more often than not a subordinate in her company. j When the reading of the play begins she cits by the side of the author at the table , the company fills the half circle and a great quiet falls as the portfolio containing the manuscript Is opened. A playwright will find no more , critical audience than this first one. Each actor listens for the appearance of his own part In the play and eager ly follows the development of the plot to see how deeply he is concerned In it Kaiser and Carnegrie. The Kaiser Wilhelm says , "Vot iss Der reasons why at Carnegie Some Yankees laughs ? Do not they disRemember - Remember he gifs money free ? I much am wishing that to stay To this my country come he would And gif to us his gold away Where peoples all would treat him good ; I'd like to meet him side by each Has he not said I am vun peach ? " Says Carnegie : "Tlie Kaiser is The brawest mon wi' me acquent ; He muckle kens about his biz And a' that's gtiid in government ; He has an unco' canny mind That's crammed fu' weel wi' high ideals And they are daft or maur than blind Who say his head is lined wi' wheels ; The proof o' this is plain to see He has appreciated me.

Old Ironsides at anchor lay , In the harbor of Mahoa ; A dead calm rested on the bay The waves to sleep had gone ; When little Hal , the captain's son , A lad both brave and good , In sport , up shroud and rigging ran , And on the main-truck stood ! \ A shudder shot through every vein ; All eyes were turned on high ! .There stood the boy , with dizzy brain , Between the sea and sky. No hold had he above , below ; Alone he stood in air ; To that far height none dared to geNe No aid could reach him there. We gazed , but not a man could speak ! With horror all aghast In groups , with pallid brow and cheek , We watched the quivering mast. The atmosphere grew thick and hot , And of a lurid hue As riveted unto the spot Stood officers and crew. The father came on deck. lie gasped , " 0 God ! Thy will bo tlone I" Then suddenly a rifle grasped And aimed it at his son. "Jump , far out , boy , into the wave ! Jump , or I fire , " he said. "That only chance your life can save ; Jump , jump , boy ! " He obeyed. i He sank he rose he lived he moved , And for the ship struck out. On board we hailed the lad beloved With many a manly shout. The father drew , in silent joy , Those wet arms round his neck , And folded to his heart Lis boy Then fainted on the deck. Walter Colton. RYAN TO GROW PEANUTS. Go to Africa Soon , to Look. Over XCTV Interests. When Thomas F. Ryan interests him self in any enterprise he is more thanv likely to get everything out of it that can be made to yield a profit , says the New York Tribune. When he acquired the 70,000 acres in the Kongo district it was generally supposed that he would be satisfied with the gold , copper and rubber in sight there. But Mr. Ryan , as a Virginian , knows the poten tiality of rich soil , and as there would be many thousands of idle acres in the Kongo principality which he had ac quired , and as his idle land would not yield any of the three great crops frois whlcn the greater part of his profit was supposed to come , he determined to put itto practical use. Virginia is a great peanut State. Ths soil conditions in Mr. Ryan's Kongo domain are peculiarly well fitted for peanut culture. The best-paying grade of peanuts that come from the Virginia market are the so-called Jumbo variety , a large , rich nut , abounding in oil and general all-around nutrition. Mr. Ryan is going to raise Jumbo peanuts in his mid-African property. These Jumbo peanuts will bring a big price in this market , and will be in strumental in breaking many a corner as now engineered by the shellers in Mr. Ryan's own State. Men with all technical knowledge of the matter have been sent to the Kongo. Probably the most-used peanut is what Is called the Spanish , an offshoot of what used to be exclusively grown in Spain. This is the little round pea nut so much used for salting. In Vir ginia a greater part of the crop grown there is called Spanish No. 1. When the crop is short there the original Spanish is imported from Spain , but in fact , it is grown in Northern Africa. The conditions of the Virginia soil make It superior for this nut over any other section in the world except the Kongo district The Junibo variety brings the highest price , however , and naturally it was that variety that Mr. Ryan selected for his crop. He will later grow the Span ish peanut , which , although cheaper , has a greater sale than the Jumbo. But Mr. Ryan's advisers , knowing that the Jumbo would have the greater sale if the price were lower , advised him to try that grade first And that is the grade that Mr. Ryan will grow in the Kongo district , and from the proceeds thereof he hopes to be able to pay no Inconsiderable part of the expenses of the working of his rubber plantations , gold mines and copper enterprises. The Teeth. The accumulation of tartar on the teeth makes them unsightly and is of ten the cause of a bad breath. If the teeth are properly brushed each .day tartar will not have the chance to ac cumulate , but if it has already been allowed to do so it can be removed by a very simple treatment Moisten the toothbrush In warm water and dip it Into magnesia. Rub on the teeth , and after three applications the tartar will have entirely disappeared. The Bane and the Antidote.
