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.' MICROSCOPIC MESSAGES. How a Single Pigeon Might Carry a Whole Library. 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 novels. 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 Weekly. 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, see. she begins with a feather, just like me!" Turn to the Light. If there Is anywhere on your hori zon a spot of light fix your eyes upon it and turn your thoughts away from the clouds which may cover the rest of the sky. Juet Like Shopping.

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 the .COUNTRY in that they taught the railroads how to handle troops a lesson which would be of GREAT USE in an emergency, should one arise. BjejMi A Few Don'ts For the American Girl By Dr. MARY CRAWFORD. First Woman Surgeon In Brooklyn VVVWVV9VVVWVVVVVVVVWVVVVVAAaAaA4 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. ooccco0'oO'c-o-o0'ooO'o0'a0"ooooc-o Health and How to Acquire It XAVUA1 .JL.tV M.M. -r o By E. R. PRITCHARD.

And H Wad a Sign Out to Let th Neighbors Know. In a little sottlenieut on the outskirts of Chicago two houses stand out more boldly tbau the rest. These two are the domiciles of two Italians of means. who, although being very ignorant men, vied with each other for the social leadership of the locality. One day a newcomer, in search of temiHrary lodgings, nttrar-ted by a conspicuous sign in the window of the first of these two houses, stepped to the door to make Inquiry. "I see you have furnished room, here," he said to the swarthy man who answered his knock. "Ya," rejoined the foreigner, point ing to the furnished room sign, "dere'a da sign." "Well, if you have one that's suitable I'd like to rent It for awhile." "We no rent da rooms," was the be wildering declaration. "I got my fam ily lu here, and dey take up all da house." "Don't rent any rooms? Why, then, hare you that sign stuck in the win dow:'" 'Til tell you.
