{ "stood Example of Scottish Humor In
Remark Made by Railroad
Scottish humor Is dry rather than
boisterous , and I always think there
is exquisite drollery in , the story of
the Stonehayen railway porter and the
Salvation Army "captain. " To catch
the hang of a little yarn readers must
remember that Stonehaven lies to the
south of jytwrdeeu. The London train
had drawn up at Stonehaven on ac
count -of a slight mishap a mile or two
ahead , and Andra , the old porter , had
got into conversation with a Salvation
Army officer who had popped his head
out of the compartment to ask the
reason for the delay.
'Aye ' , aye , " mused Andra , after giv
ing the desired information , "ye'll be
for Aiberdeen , I'm thinkin' ? "
Yes , my man , " was the reply ;
"I'm bound for Aberdeen a very
wicked place , I'm told ! "
What raicht ye be goln' to dae
here , sir , It It's as bad as a' that ? "
ked Andra , rather amused at the
visitor's words.
Ah , " was the pious answer , "I'm
going to drive the devil out of Aber
deen. "
Like lightning came from the old
porter the pawky retort :
See an' drive him north , chiel ;
jhaud him well to the north ! " E *

No Indigestion , Gas , Sourness or Dya-
pepsia Five Minutes After Taking
a Little Diapepsin.
There should not be a case of indiges-
flon , dyspepsia or gastritis here if read
ers who are subject to Stomach trou
ble knew the tremendous anti-ferment
and digestive virtue contained In Dia
pepsin. This harmless preparation
. - * , will digest a heavy meal -without
v * -sJlie slightest fuss or discomfort , and
N , Relieve the sourest , acid stomach In
Vfi e minutes , besides overcoming all
Al , nauseous odors from the breath.
Ifyour stomach Is sour and full of
as , or your * food doesn't digest , and
your meal don't seem to fit , why not
get a 50-cent case of Pape's Diapepsin
from any druggist here in'town , and
make life Tvorth living. Absolute re
lief from Stomach misery and perfect
digestion of anything you eat is sure
to follow five minutes after , and be-
Bides , one fifty-cent case is sufficient
lo cure a whole family of such trouble.
Surely , a harmless , inexpensive
preparation like Pape's Diapepsin ,
which will always either at daytime
Dr during night , relieve your sick ,
tour , gassy , upset stomach and digest
your meals , is about as handy and val
uable a thing as you could have in tha

New Classification of Indians.
Iviio : : County. Hon. F. H. Abbott ,
assistant commissioner of Indian af
fairs , was in Niobrara consulting the
competency board regarding the Santee -
tee and Ponca Indians. This board ,
comprising Superintendent F. E. Mc-
Intyrc , Chief Clerk A. G. Pollock and
H. P. Marble , editor of the Humboldt
Leader , has decided to classify k e
Indians thus : First , all restrictions
removed as to his ability to manage
his estate , when found competent ;
second , those deemed capable of mak
ing their own leases and attending to
their own business to a limited extent ,
and third , those considered incompe
tent will have the same government
protection as heretolore. Commis
sioner Abbott is also considering the
advisability of bringing the trust
lands of the Indians under the Brown
law , which taxes them , but does not
serve as a lien on the lands. The
government will protect counties in
this wherever Indians have leased
lands and will hold the individual In
dian responsible pending the issuance
of his patent. _ "

Mayonnaise Without an Egg Can Ba
Made With the Aid of the Fol
lowing Recipe.
Mayonnaise Without Egg. Pew pe'o
pie know one can make a perfect look
ing and perfect tasting stiff mayon
naise without an egg. Place a teaspoonful -
spoonful of plain mustard , mixed with
a few drops of cold water , in a small
bowl. - ' Add oil , not necessarily drop
by drop , but still rather slowly. Stir
vigorously all the while. As it thick
ens too much to handle comfortably ,
thin-with lemon juice or vinegar. A
little tarragon vinegar is always a
great addition to any salad. After
the mayonnaise is finished season ac
cording to taste and discretion. There
is hardly any limit to the quantity of
oil that may be used. Less or more
mustard may be used , but it must be
borne in mind that it is the made
mustard that holds the oil together. I
generally make a large quantity of
mayonnaise at once , using a dessert
spoonful of mustard * and as much oil
as I can afford enough for several
meals. It keeps most excellently in a
covered jar in a cool place.
New Salad. Cut off crusts of white
bread ( fresh ) , cut in diamond shape
and toast a light brown. On one-half
a piece grate the yolk of hard boiled
egg , on the other half white of egg
minced fine , and then place on the
slice a sardine ; on this lay three strips
of sweet green peppers , crossed , put
ting over the whole a nice mayonnaise
dressing ; the bread is then placed In
a nest of crisp lettuce leaves , and a
thin slice of lemon is placed on each
plate. This is a most appetizing way
of serving sardines. Try it
Philippine Salad. Cut tomatoes ,
large white onions , green and sweet
red peppers , also cucumbers , in very
thin slices , add a good French dress
ing and let the salad stand for an
hour at least on ice in a cool place.
Garnish with crisp lettuce leaves be
fore serving. This makes a pretty
dish if the different vegetables used
are laid in separate circles , alternate
ly. The seeds of the peppers must
be carefully removed before they are
sliced and the cucumbers peeled.
Banana Puffs.
Beat three eggs until light , add
three tablespoons of cold water , one
cup of sugar , one-half saltspoon of
salt and one cup of fiour sifted with
one teaspoon of baking powder , stir
In two bananas cut Into pieces , fill
well-buttered cups half full and steam
one hour. Serve with pineapple
Pineapple sauce. Put one cup of
sugar and three-fourths of a cup of
water in a saucepan , bring to a boil
ing point and thicken with two tea
spoons of' ' cornstarch made smooth in
a little cold wa er , remove from fire ,
cool a little , ' add one" cup of grated
pineapple , one tablespoon of lemon
juice and one-half cup of orange juice.
Stir wll andaserve.
Pineapple' Cream.
Beat the yolks of three eggs slight
ly , add the juice and grated rind ol
one lemon , a pinch of salt and half a
cupful of sugar. Let simmer on the
fire slowly , stirring all the time until
it thickens. Then remove and stir in
a cupful of canned pineapple grated
fine and one and a half tablespoonfuls
of gelatine which has previously been
soaked in half a cupful of cold water.
When the mixture begins to jell stir
in half a cupful of cream beaten to a
froth and the whites of the three
eggs also beaten stiff. Turn into a
mold and' chill thoroughly until time
to serve.
Clams Deliclously Deviled.
For a very delicious dish of deviled
clams prepare a cupful of chopped
clams and season them with cayenne ,
salt and juice of lemon. Mix them tea
a soft , batter-like consistency with
the yolks of two eggs and some pow
dered crackers. Put the mixture : into
little ramekins , broad-scalloped shells ,
or into tiny cups , spread the surface
with soTt butter and "bake Tintll well
browned. For a change the mixture
may be spread over crisp crackers and
then browned in the oven.
Molasses Muffins.
Quarter cupful of molasses , three
heaping teaspoonfuls of baking .pow
der , one-quarter teaspoonful of salt ,
'three eggs , one-half a cupful
of milk , one cupfulof flour
: and. three-fourths cupful of rye meal.
Mix and sift dry ingredients and re
maining ingredients ; beat well. Drop
' from a spoon into smoking hot fat tea

fourths cup milk , one-fourth cup co
coa. Stir constantly till it will form
a soft ball when dropped in cold wa
ter. Add a tiny bit of butter , one-
half teaspoon vanilla and one-third
cup of raisins , seeded and torn in two

powder , one-quarter teaspoon salt , two
eggs , .1 % cups finely chopped apples ,
milk to make a thin batter. Serve

Filial Affection Lost Sight Of by the
Small but Enthusiastic Lover
of Football.
Among the spectators at a match
between the Blackburn Rovers and
the Olympic was a little lad about
nine years of age. Though the boy's
knowledge of the game may have
been limited , his notion of correct
play was extremely robust.
"Go It , 'Lympic , " he yelled. "Rush
'em off their pins. Clatter 'em. Jump
on their chests. Bowl 'em over. Good
for yer. Mow 'em down. Scatter 'em ,
'Lympic. "
When his parent neatly "grassed"
one of the opposing forwards , the
youngster expressed approval by
bawling , "Good fer yer , owd 'en , " add
ing proudly to the spectators , "Feyth-
er 'ad 'im sweet. "
"Yes , " said a hearer , "but he'll get
killed before the game's finished. "
"I don't care a carrot If he does , "
said the boy. London Tit-Bits.

"My little son , when about a year
and a half old , , began to have sores
come out on his face. I had a physi
cian treat him , but the sores grew
worse. Then they began to come out
on his arms , then on other parts of
his body , and then one came on his
chest , worse than the others. Then I
called another physician. Still he
grew worse. At the end of about a
year and a half of suffering he grew
so bad that I had to tie his hands in
cloths at night to keep him from
scratching the sores and tearing the
flesh. He got to be a mere skeleton ,
and was hardly able to .walk. . ,
"My aunt advised , me to try'Cuti- '
cura Soap and Cutlcura Ointment. I
sent to a drug store and got a cake of
Cuticura Soap and a box of the Oint
ment and followed directions. At the
end of two months the sores were all
well. He has never had any sores
of any kind since. I can sincerely say
that only for Cuticura my child would
have died. I used only one cake of
Cuticura Soap and about three b xes
