St. Paul on March 19.
in a Mood to Send Through
Postal Bank Bill at an
Early Day.
Washington. The announcement
from the White House that President
Taft had by his own motion cut down
to four the number of administration
measures he would demand at the
present session of congress is received
by republican leaders with unmixed
feelings of relief. The administration
program was so formidable that mem
bers warmly supporting the Taft poli
cies hardly knew where to begin.
A schedule, including only :he bills
to amend the inters cate commerce
laws, provide for the regulation of the
issuance of injunctions, start Arizona
and New Mexico on the road to state
hood and validate the withdrawals of
public lands for conservation pur
poses, is regarded as quite possible of
attainment. Most of these measures,
it is believed, can be put through the
senate while the house is still wrest
ling with appropriation bills.
When it was reported at the capttoL
that the president would be satisfied
with the enactment of the four meas
ures named, steps were taken to
bring all of these matters out of com
mittees at the earliest possible date.
The postal savings bank bill already
i is before the senate and an agree-
ment between the upporters of con
' tlictinsr amendments is assured. It is
regarded as practically certain that
the bill can be passed during this
j week.
Hearings have been called by the
senate committee on interstate com-
! meree on the bill to create a com-
' merce court and strengthen the exist
ing laws for the regulation of common
'airier corporations. The committee
' will meet and an effort be made to
report the bill at once. There is some (
prospect that this may be done.
Although the senate could not bc-
ready to take up the railroad bill un-;
til late in the week, it is being ar-
' gued by members of the committee i
that the bill should be reported a few j
days to study its provisions before
it is put on its passage. As soon as
the postal savings bank bill is out of
the way. the railroad bill will be made

will be held before the senate con-
stantly until passed, except for the

Hew often yew tat this f4t
A short time ago there appeared In
the columns of one of the prominent
magazines an article on building brain
and muscle by the proper selection of
the foods yon eat
A good many people were surprised
to find oatmeal placed at the top of the
list of foods recommended; but if the
article had appeared In an English or
Scotch paper every reader would have
expected to see first place given to
good oatmeal.
As a matter of fact Great Britain
and Europe come to us for tremendous
quantities of Quaker Oats because it
represents to them perfect food, being
the richest in flavor and best in clean
liness and purity, of all oatmeals.
Americans should eat more Quaker
Oats; the results would soon show
themselves in improved conditions of
health and strength. 65
Helping the Minister.
A Scotch preacher had In his con
gregation an old woman who was
deaf. In order to hear the sermon
each Sunday, this old lady would seat
herself at the foot of the pulpit stairs.
One day the sermon was about Jonah,
and the preacher became very rhetor
ical. "And when the sailors threw Jonah
overboard," he said, -a big fish swal
lowed him up. Was it a shark that
got im? Nay, my brethren, it was
ne'er a shark. Was it a swordfish
that eat him? Nay
"It was a whale," whispered the old
lady excitedly.
"Hush, Biddie." said the preacher,
indignantly. "Would ye tak th' word
of God out 6 yer ane meenister's
mouth?" Success Magazine.

Those stern economists who

forget that even such people have a
moral right to something beyond the
bare necessities of life. The rapid
increase in prices does not mean to
them cutting out more extravagances,
but forgetting the modest recreations
which have brightened for them the
dull round of daily labor. It would
be a hard world indeed where one
could obtain just enough to keep body
and soul together, and no more.

Wizard of Electricity Finds Racfi-urr-'s
Secret Hard to Solve.
Says fuel Is Ons of the Blf Problems
f .the Future Talks of the Cem-
Ing Alr-Machlnes and
Future Food.
New York. Thomas A. Edison has
been talking about some ot Ihe won
ders and problems which make this
old world such an interesting place
in which to live. Radium, for in
stance, moves him to enthusiasm, the
greater perhaps because even Edison
himself hasn't got on confidential
terms with the substance.
He has some of it. though. Oh, yes.
Says he: "I have a spinthariscope,
which is a tiny bit of radium, of a size
that will go through the eye of a nee
dle, mounted over a piece of willemlte.
It has been shooting off millions of
sparks for the six years that I have
had it, and I expect It will be shoot
ing sparks the same way for thous
ands of years.
"While only small quantities of ra
dium have been isolated, it exists
everywhere in water, rock and soil.
The possibility of harnessing this
force for our use is somewhat of a
speculation. A radium clock has been
made and it will go several hundred
years without winding.
"The probleii of fuel is one of the
big problems or the future. We may
find out to-morrow how to get all
the power from our fuel we get only
15 to 20 per cent, now and on the
other hand it may take a long time.
Water power is being rapidly devel
oped. Maybe the utilization of the
tides will fol'mv. More practical are
windmills connected with storage bat
teries to lay ud the energy of the
winds in electrical form.
"Sun engines are promising con
trivances. In Arizona there is a 30-
Thomas A.
sun engine run by focus-
s on water ana using a
steam turbine. In steaming volcanoes
there is power which might be con
vened into electricity and distributed.
"To get rid c' friction in our ma
chines is one of the future problems.
The only machine without friction that
we know is the world, and it moves in
. rpt!e ether.
The monorail does not appeal to
me. It was a fundamental mistake
that our railroads were built on a four
foot nine and one-half inch gauge in
stead of a six-foot gauge, which we
will proDably have to come to yet.

M. Briand. the successor of M. Cle

man of wit. Recently he was called
to task by an orator, who said: "A
wrong has been committed against the
aid servants of the state. Montesquieu
said with truth that the republic
should have virtue at its base." "At
its base." responded M. Briand. smil

its summit." Le Cri de Paris.

Diet for the Too Flump.
Such foods as bananas, fresh bread
and butter, pastry, cake, candy, pota
toes, rich soups and made dishes are
death to the sylphlike form. Avoid
them you who would be slender, and
eat unbuttered toast or zwieback. Hot
water with a little lemon juice in
stead of coffee, or at most but one cup
of coffee.
Fish in any way except fried, eggs,
simple broth, creamed toast, green
vegetables, stewed dried fruit, baked
apples, cup custard or plain rice or
sago pudding for dessert. Any meat,
but pork may be eaten. Tomatoes
should be eaten freely as well as spin
ach and asparagus.
For dessert sherbet, fruit or toast
ed crackers with cheese. Once a week
fast one day, drinking plenty of fresh,
cold water. A month of this treat
ment will show a decrease of from
five to ten pounds, and a week will
show a slight reduction.
As sugar is fattening and so many
of our desserts contain sugar in some
form, it would seem that desserts
should be left out.
Lemon or orange Jelly with very
little sugar and no cream are the least
objectionable. Sour apples, prunes
stewed without sugar or with very lit;
tie, are allowable desserts.
Things Good to Know.
If you are not sure that the sewer
pipes are perfectly tight, pour into the
soil pipe at its mouth, above the roof
if possible or into the basin nearest
the roof, a pail of hot water then two
ounces of the oil of peppermint. The
person handling the peppermint
; should not do the sniffing for pepper
mint odor. Pass all through the lower
rooms and if the scent of peppermint
is noticed, follow it to the leaking
spot in the pipe.
Things Worth Passing On.
Heliotrope sachet powder that has
j lost its freshness makes a good de
odorizer. A small coal dropped into a
i cup with a tablespoonful of the pow
der will send up a dainty iragrance
for some time.

; Salads.
; Salads are such favorite dishes that
we never seem to have the menu
quite complete without one or two.
' Many people enjoy a simple salad as
' an appetizer to begin a meal others,
enjoy one as a dessert so that, the
salad may grace almost any course
For a dinner that salad should al
ways be light if meats are served, but
that it may take the place of the main
dish, such as chicken, lobster or sal
mon. A salmon salad being rich in oil
of the fish, is more palatable when
put together with a simple boiled
dressing with chopped pickle in the
dressing. For a simple dinner salad
of such vegetables as lettuce, cress or
dandelion, the French dressing Is es
pecially appropriate. A mayonnaise
is good served with chicken and cel
ery. Egg salad is nice for a lunch
eon or supper.
Cucumber, when used In a salad,
should be peeled, sliced and laid in
ice water to keep them crisp. This
also removes some of the acrid prin
ciples which cause gastric disturb
ances in seme stomachs.
For a fruit salad for dessert tfcre
is nothing quite so nice as the juice
of fruit for a salad dressing. If pine
apple juice is at hand, boil it with
sugar to make a rather thick syrup.
Pour this over different sliced fruits.
Another dressing equally acceptable
for fruits is made by cooking two ta-
blespoonfuls each of butter and Sour
together. Add one-half cup of sugar,
one-half cup of orange juice and one
quarter of a cup of lemon juice,
cooked until smooth. When cold serve
en apple, nut. celery, banana. wi:h a
few dates, or any combination of fruit
liked. A pretty salad may be made of
cream cheese. Arrange the tender
heart leaves of head lettuce. Prepare
'cream cheese, weii seasoned with

After the Snafces
Nearly all the rattiesaaices seen la
j the zoos of this country and in most
of those of Europe are captured by In
iian toys and girls on the western res
ervations. They locate a spot wher
the snakes come out to sun and then
creep up with sqairt guns charged
ith ammonia and spray the rattlers
and render them he!p!ess. When th
snake revives he is a prisoner and
worth three dollars to his captor.
