Telephone Cure for Ohcaity.
"Pseudo-science ! " said Nikola Tesla ,
at a dinner of electricians , apropos of
an electrical cure for old age. "To a
layman.1 Mr. Tesla resumed , "such a
cure sounds reasonable. But to a sci
entist it is as ridiculous as the tele
phone cure for corpulence. You have
heard of tW ? No ?
"Well , Herbert Heavey , weighing 2So
pounds , decided to reduce electrically.
He wrapped a coil of copper wire
round his wrist , connected it with the
telephone apparatus , and , sure enough ,
began at once to grow lighter at the
rate of several pounds a minute.
" 'This is a grand scheme , ' chuckled
Heavey , pulling out the waistband of
his trousers , which was already a foot !
too big for his waist.

Advice of Family Physician.
Formerly people thought meat nec
essary for strength and muscular vigor.
The man who worked hard was sup
posed to require meat two or three
'times a day. Science has found out
! It Is now a common thing for the
family physician to order less meat , as
in the following letter from a N. Y.
' "I had suffered for years with dyspepsia - \
pepsia and nervousness. My physician
advised me to eat less meat and greasy
'foods ' generally. I tried several things
to take the place of my usual break
fast of chops , fried potatoes , etc. , but
fet no relief until I tried Grape-Nuts
"After using Grape-Nuts for the
Cereal part of my meals for two years ,
I am now a well man. Grape-Nuts
feeneflted my health far more than the
500.00 worth of medicine I had taken
"My wife and children are healthier
than they had been for years , and we

"We have been so much benefited by
Grape-Nuts that It would be ungrate

Moist Petted Women In the World.
That we are the most indulged and
petted women in the world is undoubt
edly true ; it is difficult to see why we f
should claim a powerful place in the
national life. While the women of oth
er countries are making and saving ,
our women are wasting and sending.
The light-hearted Italian -rromen are
a source of wealth to their country by
their frugality and their not inconsid
erable business ability. Their less
light-hearted and less comely Gorman
sisters are miracles of hard-working
thrift. No one who has lived in Ger
many can fail to have observed what
comfortable homes and what substan
tial meals the German hausfrau of all
classes conjures from incomes so tiny
that the American can only wonder
how they manage to live at all.
It is also interesting to observe that
for her success in homemaking the Ger
man woman reaps her reward. The
German husband may seem to us un-
chivalrous in the minor details of life ;
he may talk with brutal disparagement
about the "female brain. ' ' but when he
goes out to amuse himself it doesn't
occur to him to go alone. He takes
with him his wife and children. That
pathetic person whose husband neglects
her for the society of men , for whom
our tears flow so often in this country ,
is not found in Germany.
While the poorest class of English
women are poor homemakers. and
while we undoubtedly learned some of
our lessons in inefficient and wasteful
cooking from our English kinswomen ,
English women of the upper classes
put iis to shame in the part they play
In the political life of the country.
They have their definite part they are
expected to piny in the game of poli
tics. The well educated English
women do not exist who can not talk
Intelligently on the political situation.
American women can not ; politics
It is , however , In France that woman
has the most power. From the peasant
ui she takes a more active part in the
affairs of her country than do the t
women < of any other land. The pros- "
perlty of France is builded on the
amazing thrift of French women. She
combines with this thrift a supreme f
talent for home-making. Housekeep
ing does not give her nervous prostra 1 ]
tion , and the brisk cheerfulness of all
French women Is the one thing that
notably strikes the traveler in France , _
whether ] he comes from America , Germany
many or England. The French woman's
business ability Is pre-eminent. With
her thrift , gayety and business ability ,
Is not surprising that she wields the
power that she does. Applcton's Mag :

IIHnoisan Chosen Speaker of House
When Extra Session Begins
NEW MEMBERS ARE SWORN IN.
Lively Scenes at the Nation's Capitol
When Lawmakers Gather for
Washington correspondence :
The extraordinary session of the Six-
tjvfirst Congress , called by the Presid '
dent to enact tariff legislation , began
at noon Monday. Great crowds were
attracted to the capital , but only a few
were able to gain admission to either
chamber. The Senate being a continu- j
ous body , its organization was al
ready complete , although interest in
the proceedings centered on the new
Vice-President , Mr. Sherman , and the
swearing in of Senator Stephinson of
Wisconsin , who has been re-elected aft
er a bitter fight in the Legislature &
his State. At the other end of the
capitol , however , a different situation
was presented. The House , with its
seventy-seven new members , had to organize -
ganize , which took considerable time.
While this was being done the clerk , (
Alexander McDowell , acted as presiding
officer. It was necessary first to swear
in the entire membership by States.
The various groups of members
marched down the aisles and , standing
in the well in front of the rostrum ,
took the oath of office. The President's
proclamation was read to both bodies ,
r which business proceeded.
A few minutes after the House met
Joseph G. Cannon of Illinois was reelected -
elected Speaker. The vote on Speaker
was : Cannon , 20-1 ; Champ Clark , Mis
souri , 100 : Cooper. Wisconsin , S ;
Esch , Wisconsin , 1 ; Norris. Nebraska ,
; Hepburn. Iowa , 1.
The session of the Senate Monday
was brief , the chief business being the
reading of the President's proclama
tion calling an extra session of the
Sixty-first Congress and the appoint
ment of a committee formally to noti
fy the President that the Senate was
in readiness to receive any message.
Senator Stephenson of Wisconsin was
sworn in as a United States Senator.
After being in session fifteen minutes
recess was taken until 2 o'clock and
almost immediately upon reassembling
the Senate adjourned. Joseph G. Can
non was re-elettcci Speaker by the
House , but a motion to adopt the old
rules was voted down. Sevei-al amend
ments to the rules were secured after
The reading of the President's mes
sage in favor of a revision of the tar
iff was the chief business before the
Senate Tuesday. The message re-
ceived careful attention from SenaS
tors. After the adoption of a motion
that the Senate should not meet again
until Friday an adjournment was tak
en. In striking contrast to the scenes H
confusion , disorder and acrimoni-
ous debate which marked the opening a
day of the House , the session of that ep
body assumed its wonted air of digni epvl
. The message of President Taft wl
pointing out the necessity for a revi do
sion of the tariff was received and met fe
with prolonged applause from the Re- , is .
