enough I had as good results as any I
heard about. My backache left me
anu io one oi my tmsiness, express
man, that alone is a great advantage.
My kidneys acted free and normal and
that saved me a lot of misery. It is

Everybody in Columbus and the south
part of Platte county does and so do
all the teachers in the county. But
for the benefit of our readers who have
not had the pleasure of meeting him,
we take pleasure in intrducing him as
the republican candidate for county
superintendent, Gideon Braun, of Loup
township. He is a young man strong
in all the qualities that go to make
up the best type of American citizen
ship, and intensely interested in
everything pertaining to educatinal
affairs. The people of Platte county
will make no mistake in placing their
schools under the charge of a hqme
boy like him.
SHAVING IS NOT FATAL
Barbers Nowadays Oo Not Us Ham
mers and Cold Chisels.
In reply to a correspondent who says
he yearns to have his flowing beard
removed and yet lacks the Spartan
Qrmness of the early martyrs to face
the ordeal and cakes a pathetic ap
peal for advice the alfalfa editor of
the Emporia Gazette unfeelingly re
marks: "The alfalfa editor can offer no ad
vice or encouragement to such a trem
bling soul. It seems probable that ho
has worn his whiskers for many years.
It Is likely that he hasn't purchased a
shave for a quarter .of a century and
therefore is ignorant of the improve
ments in the art tonsorial which have
been achieved in recent years. It is
no longer like going through a slaugh
ter house to an ojmjii grave to be shav
ed by an exiert barber. In fact, that
operation has been so shorn of its ter
rors that man) eminent citizens con
sider it a pleasure to visit the barber.
It is no longer necessary to strap a
patient down in the chair before shav
ing him; neither is it necessary to ad
minister anaesthetics to his whiskers.
"The man whose only reason for
wearing whiskers Is the fact that he
fears the barber shop will gain little
sympathy. If he tries to explain that
he cannot shave himself without suf
fering the agonies of the nil fired he
will gain less. Such excuses might
have had some force long ago, when
barbers used hammers and 'cold chis
els, but science has made giant strides
in recent years, and the country is full
of painless barbers, and a clean shave
tosts no anguish or Inconvenience.'
How a Single Pigeon Might Carry a
For more than 2,000 years carrier
pigeons have been used to carry mes
sages when no other means sufficed,
and during the siege of Paris, when
303 birds were sent out from the doom
ed city, one of the birds performed the
almost incredible feat of currying to
the outside world on one trip no less
than 40,000 messages averaging twenty
words each. This was 800,000 words,
or the equivalent of live or six average
This marvel was accomplished by
means of microscopic photography, the
messages being lirst printed with ordi
nary tyjMi and then photographed and
rephotographed until they had been
reduced several hundred diameters.
The final photographs were taken on
films or jteliicles of collodion, each of
which, about two inches square, con
tained 50,000 words. A dozen of these
films, rolled up in a quill, weighed but
one twenty-eighth of an ounce. The
messages could, of course, be read
with a microscope without the neces
alty of rephotographing and enlarging.
Under favorable conditions and for
comparatively short distances pigeons
have carried as much as three-quarters
of an ounce. Using the photo re
duction method, it would therefore be
possible for a single bird to carry
messages equal in words to no fewer
than 120 ordinary volumes. Harper's
Whistler's White Leek.
As long as the name of James Mc
Neill Whistler lives among those who
6a w him it will recall the famous white
lock which stood out so conspicuously
from the mass of his black hair. It
was, as he used to say himself, "well
placed" and was always treated from
the harmonous point of view to de
velop its greatest effect in his appear
ance. One day when Dorothy Menpes,
daughter of the well known English
artist Mortimer Menpes, was a baby
and was asleep on her pillow Whistler
went to sec her. A white feather had
by chance settled on her head and lay
in a spot exactly corresponding with
the white lock on his own head.
"That child is going to develop into
something great," he exclaimed, "for,

it has been serving in larger bodies, in regiments, etc., than it
was in 1898, when companies, battalions and regiments were
brought together for the first time from distant stations, hastily or
ganized into divisions and hurried into improvised transports for a
tropical service with which the men and officers were wholly un
familiar. The present maneuvers have also enabled the graduates of our
military schools to make PRACTICAL APPLICATION of the
many theoretical problems presented at the institute, where, of course,
the work is largely paper. And the practical work involved has led to
many minor changes tending toward the perfection of camp equip
ment In addition to this, the maneuvers have been of marked benefit to

troops a lesson which would be of GREAT USE in an emergency,

A Few Don'ts
By Dr. MARY CRAWFORD. First Woman
Surgeon In Brooklyn
CE American woman who wishes to be well should begin the
battle for health in her teens, and her mother should help
her. In the hands of the young girl lies the future of the
woman. Food, clothes and exercise should all be designed
to assist her development, not to retard it. For instance, no girl should
be allowed to put on corsets before reaching the age of twenty, because
they hamper her growth.
A few don'ts which the growing girl would do well to notice are:
DON'T wear French heels or tight dresses.
DON'T lunch between meals.
DON'T eat a pound of candy a day.
DON'T fail to take a daily batlu
DON'T stay up late nights. '-
DON'T walk in thin, low shoes. f-
DON'T fail to exercise outdoors every day.
DON'T be afraid of work.
DON'T grow up too soon.
