Saleswomen Are Remarkably Adept at
That the saleswomen In European
shops are wonderfully quick-witted has
often been noted. This is especially
true of tie French. Many of them,
without understanding English, will in
terpret correctly the comments Ameri
cans make aside when examining
goods, simply by studying their ges
tures and facial expressions. Once in
Brussels we were looking at gloves.
To my certain knowledge the sales
woman was wholly unacquainted with
the English language. My companion
said privately to me: "I am afraid
these gloves will spot." "O, no,
madame," the saleswoman instantly
interrupted, in French, "they will
never spot at all."
In Boulogne-sur-Mer, at a shop for
men's furnishings, I asked for dress
shirts. A very bright young woman
gave me a quick, sharp glance, and
then brought some specimens. They
bore no distinguishing marks as to
size. "Is there some man here who
can take my measure?" I asked. "That
is not necessary, sir," she replied,
very sweetly. "Are you sure these
will fit me?" "Perfectly." "But
how can you tell?" I argued, uncon
vinced. "Why, sir," she explained in
surprise at my doubt, "I looked at
you." So I took the shirts to my
room and tried them on, and surely
enough, they were the best fit I ever
had. Travel Magazine.
The Way to His Vote.
Lord Beaconsfleld's skill in picking
up stray votes was well known. An il
lustration of it is given in a recent
book by Mr. Henry W. Lucy.

CAN ONLY BE CALLED MIRACLE.
Never before have the people of Columbus heard of such wonder
ful cures as performed by the Quaker Doctors, now located here with
a high class entertainment in the North Theatre every night, and a
staff of specialists, with offices at the Theatre, every day from 10 to 12
and 2 to 4 p. m. Their office is crowded with men and women suffer
ing with chronic diseases that has baffled all medical science before.
And to hear and see what they are doing will convince the most
sceptical person. These physicians are all they claim to be. They
have practiced in Mexico, Europe, Canada, and most every part of the
United Stales, and have examined, treated and cured more chronic
diseases than any two physicians in America. They have in their
possession wonderful surgical instruments of their own invention and
medicines only known to them, that they carefully compound and
apply to suffering humanity.
GOD BLESS THE QUAKER DOCTORS
For several years I was a sick woman; just what was the mat
ter I did not know but I do know indeed I was a sick woman and
could get nothing that would give me relief. I tried local doctors,
specialists, highly advertised patent medicines, and everything that
was recommended to me. Last summer and fall my trouble was at its "
worst. I was unable to work for several months, lost in flesh, had .no
ambition or energy whatever, and was extremely nervous. I became
alarmed, knowing if I remained in that conditionj wouldn't last long.
A neighbor came to me and said the Quaker Doctors cured her of a
similar trouble in three weeks, and the charges were nominal. She
advised me to go and see them. I did so, but I must admit with little
faith, as I had tried so many without benefit. Imagine my glad sur-'
prise to find I was actually improving after the first treatment of the
Quaker Doctors. Of course I continued the treatment and .it made
tne a well woman in two weeks. They are great ' doctors and sell
wonderful medicine is my humble opinion
Mrs. L. H. Hinds, Norfolk. Nebr.
The Quaker Doctors will remain in Columbus for two weeks
longer, giving advice and examinations free to all who are suffering,'
and visit them during their hours at the North Theatre.
A plant was found in India, a spe
cies of "veratrumi," a small portion of
which was taken medicinally by a vic
tim of dyspepsia. He could neither
eat nor drink without the greatest ag
ony, yet he had to ride 30 miles a day
in his avocation. After the second
dose his stomach was renewed and his
appetite returned. The plant is called
"Indian's root." Let us have a bit of
it. There are 7,000,000 adults in
America who have no stomachs. They
approach the breakfast table in fear
and trembling, crying: "Oh, my God;
have I got to eat again!" N. Y. Press.
THOUGHTS OF MAN IN COMMAND.
Just What the Captain of a Battleship
How the commander of a modern
big American battleship cam feel
disclosed in the following, taken from
a letter written by such an officer:
"There are more than 900 men on this
ship, and, on the theory that an. offi
cial of the government is a servant
of the people, I am ttie servant of
these 900 odd men and am bound to
see that they are kept in food and
clothing and baseball bats and abun
dantly supplied with occupation. Per
haps I should feel more independent
if 1 didn't have to listen respectfully
'to the orderly every time he comes
in and makes one of his infinitely nu
merous reports, and put men in jail
when I don't want to.
"Some of these 900 men look more
dignified and independent than I feel.
I wonder whether I look dignified and
independent. I suppose I ought to do
so, for to swing a steel mass 504 feet
long successfully around like monsters,
and to make 15,000 tons writhe
around the corners of narrow chan
nels, is something of an art, after all,
and one not possessed by many of the
inhabitants of the globe.
"With all that swinging of steel
monsters around there go the respon
sibility and the knowledge that if the
ship runs aground the whole' civilized
world will be acquainted with it in
side of 24 hours."
AGE NOT COUNTED BY YEARS.
Just What It Means Is a Matter Hard
This is Walt Mason's story: A few
days ago an aged man was planted in
a little Kansas cemetery. That he
was highly thought of was evidenced
by the long cortege that followed the
plumed hearse to the- City of Rest
Friends stood by the open grave and
shed real tears, yet none of them
would have called him back to life
had that been possible. For he had
died of old age and consequent infirm
ities; the toil and tribulations of 75
years had battered him down; and 'for
a long time before his death he mere
ly went through the motion of living.
"He was an old, old man," said the
mourners, as they turned away from
the grave, when the clods had been
heaped upon the coffin lid.
"His age wasn't hurting him any,"
responded a white-haired man, who
stood by the newly made grave, lean
ing upon a stick. The speaker was
the dead man's father. He was 98

EXERCISE FOR THE SEDENTARY.
Mme. Jusselin, Commercial Judge.
Don't forget her name. Mme. Clem
ence Jusselin is the first woman ever
elected to any public office in France.
She is the lady who was put up as
representative of her profession as
dressmaker, and she it is who will
now decide in the trade disputes. Her
title is commercial judge. Strange to
say, Mme. Jusselin has been elected
entirely by men. Stop, though; per
haps it would have been stranger If
she had been chosen by her own sex.
She regards her election as "an almost
historic event, for It la something to
be proud of to be the first woman in
France to hold such a position." But
let madame be wary, go slow. A
commercial judge's judgments will cre
ate a stir in many quarters, and this
one may not find her role so easy.
Skating is believed to have been in
vented in northern Europe in prehis

speaks of it in London toward the end
of the twelfth century; but It did not
really catch hold until the Cavaliers
who had been in exile with Charles II.
brought it with them from Holland. On
December 1, 1662, Mr. Pepys, having
occasion to cross the park, "first in my
life, it being a great frost, did see peo
ple sliding with their skates, which is
a very pretty art." On the 8th he went
purposely to see the sight aad aeain
found it "very, pretty."

"I like dogs all right enough, but
about half a block from the park there

them up In white, tie strings around
their necks and say, 'You darling little

Thirty Jumps Before Breakfast One
of Two Recommended.
In the thick of winter busy men find
their usual exercise curtailed, and
must look about for some easy way in
which to keep themselves in condition.
Many walk to and from their places
of business, but these generally live
within three or four miles of their of
fices. If you aren't one of these, try a reg
ular course of jumping. One of your
winter maxims should be: "Thirty
jumps before breakfast" If you stick
to this all through the cold spell you
will come out in the spring as fit as
a proverbial violin.
Take an ordinary heavy kitchen
chair. Near it place a heavy rug or
an ordinary front door mat. Jump on
the chair, then jump off again onto
the mat Keep this up for 30 times,
and your exercise is accomplished. In
the long jump, jump from the bare
floor onto an old mattress, in bare feet
or in socks.
Vaulting is another splendid and
easy exercise. A regular vaulting
horse Is, of course, seldom available,
but an ordinary strong rail fence will
be found serviceable for the purpose.

There was something about the face
of the stranger who sat opposite to
her in the tram car that was familiar
to the stern lady. "Pardon me," she

tried to benefit or, at least you were

stranger. "Then our society has evi
