IT sun glows with ( bo somewhat
feverish temperature of about
10,000 degrees F. and radiates

This Is "going some , " even for Old
Sol , but there are younger suns , like
Slrlus , that glow with an even higher

orbs In the uttermost depths of space
whoso tierce llghl , traveling 8,000,000
times faster than an express train , re
quires thousands of years to make the
Journey to our earth.
Considering these facts , one must bo
impressed with the exceedingly nar
row physical limits within which life
exists on tills planet. A few degrees
more or less of heat or cold ami the
phenomena wo call life would coaso.and
a blankness of which we can form no
real conception would follow. In en
deavoring to form n mental picture of
such a world wo are reminded of
Huxley's reasons for standing mldwaj
between die Idealist and materialist
unable to picture either a world li
which there was no mind to mlrroi
its conditions or a mind usMlutj with
out nn external world from which ll
could receive Impressions.
Keep the Mind Busy.

Evil Influence of Drink.
I hesitate to stijto that alcohol tnkoi

true , however , that alcohol red noes ill
body temperature and H therefore
d-ingc-rous drink lu cold weather Bu
it does not follow that alcohol is ind :
cated In hot weather. Alcohol Is a
anaesthetic aud depressant , lesseuin
the bodily resistance to disease aud s
affecting the nervous system that it I
peculiarly vulnerable to heat stroke ;
or thermic fever as well as to grl |
pneumonia and other cold weattii
During the heated term it Is wise t
keep out of annoying conferences an
disputes. Heat Induces a peculiar !
sensitive and Irritable condition , whic
! s aptly described by the phrase "ca
eying n chip ou one's shoulder. "
Dressing For the Weather.
Some persons arc guided by the en
endnr Instead of the thermometer :
the matter of clothing. During mode
ate winter weather they are ovcrdrcs
ed. and In extreme hot weather th (
continue to wear clothing adapted

The wisest plan Is to dress especial
for the weather. Wo should ha
extra light clothing for torrid wentlu
Just as we should have extra hem
outer clothing for blizzard weather.

wearer unduly dependent on such gar

Induce fatigue and depression. Com
mon sense should be exercised In such

Individual peculiarities of constitution
Old people ami Invalids may require
extra protection against cold , but the
average Individual should endeavor to
become adapted to the wearing of
medium weight clothing for ordinary
winter weather and take extra precau

Thu dnliymoriilng shower or plnugo
will brace the nervous system for thu
ordeal of a hot day ; likewise It will
give poise to the circulation and de
velop u ri'slstauce to cold weather perils
of grip , bronchitis , etc. A tepid bath In
( he evening will often prove refreshing
nnd soothing. A cold bath at night
may prove exciting rather than cool
ing and restful.
Children should not bo allowed tc
paddle around In the water with hcnd-i
exposed to the sun. A sea dip Is good
for them , but they should not be per
mitted to piny around the water ifii-
less their tender llttlo brains are well
protected from the sun's rays. Cool

Restful Sleep Necessary.
Ilestful sleep Is very necessary to re
store the nervous system exhausted by
prolonged hot weather. Late supper.-
and indiscretions In eating and drink
ing are often responsible for disturbed
sleep. Cure In this regard Is especially
necessary when the heat and humldllj

of people In this country are underfed
On the contrary , the average Ameri
can family probably cats too mucl

Washington , Feb. 20. The supreme
court of the United States today grant
ed a reeiucst that it review the con
viction of ofllclals of the American
naval stores company , accused of hav
ing violated the Sherman anti-trust
The American naval stores com
pany , whose oflicinls were concerned
In the action of the court today , has
been referred to as the "turpentine
and rosin trust. "
As a distributor and exporter of
what Is claimed to be more than fifty
percent of the turpentine and rosin
obtained from the long leaf yellow
plno of the Carolinas , Georgia , Flor
ida , Alabama , Mississippi , Louisiana
and Texas , the company long has boon
a prominent figure In the trade of the
world. Its customers nre scattered
through the United States.
Today's action was the outcome of
prosecution begun In 1908 in the
United States circuit court of Geor-
la , against the company , Its officers
ind others for alleged violation of the
herman anti-trust law.
It had been preceded by oth r pros
ecutions. In one of these Spencer P.
Shotter , whose activities as chairman
of the board of directors lias made him
; he most prominent figure in the com
pany , was found guilty of violating the
nterstate commerce laws and fined ,
In another , he was found guilty of vio-
ating the Sherman a'nti-trust law and
lined. In the case before the court to
day he has been sentenced to prisoner
; or alleged violation of the anti-trust
, avr , in addition to payment of a fine ,
The government's claim of conspir
acy among the defendants was based
partly on the pecuj'iar system of mar
kets for turpentine and rosin. It wag
> j" the government that the only opener
or quotation market in the United
States for the sale of naval-stores wns
at Savannah , Ga. At all1 the othei
ports or markets , It wasolalmetl , the
prices wore based on the closing
prices at Savannah.
This being the case , the government
claims the defendants conspired tt
stay out of the Savannah market ir
the early part of 1905in order to de
press that market nnd during thai
time to make large purchases at clos
ed markets , whcro the prices wouli
be depressed becaiiEO of the depression
sion at Savannah.

Mrs. Sheriff Was Overcome by Smoke.
Fire from an overheated cook stove
and a defective Hue in the kitchen of
the Aden Sheriff residence at 1101
Taylor avenue , partly destroyed the
interior of the small house and dam
aged the furniture. Mr. Sheriff , who
is employed as night electrician at the
mill , was visiting with his mother who
is ill , and Mrs. Sheriff had replenish
ed the fire in the kitchen stove and
had gone to the back yard for a chick
en which she was to send to her sick
mother. When she returned she
found the kitchen lllled with smoke
and the fire making great headway.
She was overcome by the smoke
and had to be carried in an uncon
scious condition to the Wade resi
dence. Although the roads were in
very bad shape , the fire department
arrived on the scene in time to pre
