these are men who manage those restaur

One of them expressed himself very em

bad evinced an Interest In the shortcom

"If 1,000 men 'were to com In here and
each one ate fl worth. I would have just
11.000." he said, by way of example. "On

and allow them to pick out their own
checks I might possibly have $500. but I
doubt It- Oh, they are natural morn
cheats, women are. It seem to be a sixth
sense In every woman's makeup to try to
get aheaed of th person who provides her
meals. It Isn't lack of money that makes
them do It, either: It's dishonesty, pure and
simple, that's all." ' ;
Th woman to whom those horrifying
revelations had been made walked away
trying to evolve some plan for emanclpat
Ing her sisters from the web of dishonest
propensities In which they had become en
meabed. Ovitelde th restaurant she met a

said. "Glorious place; cheap, too. It a

Pituitary Gland Potential
Prof. Arthur Keith at th English Royal,
college of Surgeons, believes giants can
be raised In these days. He asserted this
belief in a recent lecture on th fossil re
mains of a giant.
"Bo far," he said, "we have only un
locked the door of th unknown. We do
not know exactly what .the room will con
tain when we enter it, but we think that
when we have done that, we shall have the
means of regulating the size and stature
of body at will. Modern research has
proved that the growth of a giant Is due to
a diseased condition. Recent discoveries
relating to th cause of giantism have
shown that the key to the growth was
found In what Is called the pituitary body
at th base of the skull..
"It is a Uttl thing which would not
fill a teaspoon. It la smaller than a
grape, and yet we know it to be a thing
of very great Importance. It was dis
covered by a French physician, Ilerre
Mart, who found also that In cases of
abnormal growth this small body had en
tered. He Jumped at the Idea that It must
secret something which somehow affected
th growth of th body.
"Now it has been found that in the pitui
tary gland are secreted a number of liquid
substances which ar deposited In th
blood. Possibly at a future date, scientists
may be able to extract that one unknown
essential substance and by feeding the Sub
ject with it will be able to make the growth
go on continuously. Now, normal growth
occurs In stages. There are weeks when a
child stays the same also. This Is followed
by weeks when it grows, for the pituitary
body Is only active by fits. '
"When the unknown secretion Is too
plentiful In adults, It cause unusual stout
ness, but In the young, who have not yet
flniahed their growth, an abnormal growth,
or giantism, results. Science therefore holds
out th hop that people may be able to
regulate their heights, and that beauty
doctors may be able to work on strictly
"If a lady, for instance, did not think
that her nose was symmetrical a doctor
could bring It to th shape required by
means of a pltultal sandwich."
When Nova Scotia Flirted with Uncle Sam
At this time, when certain British colonies
are so touchy, apparently, on the possi
bility of annexation, It will be Interesting
to read certain resolutions Introduced in
tho Nova Scotia legislature forty years ago.
At that time the settlement of the Ala
bama claims was pending, and some brave
spirit put th Nova Bcotla sentiment in
'Whereas, Th Joint high commission
appointed by the government of Great
Britain and th United States of America
to consider the Alabama claims (so-called),
the fishery question and other matters in
dispute between these two governments,
will shortly sit at Washington; and
whereas, It Is conceded by the British gov
ernment that England may be liable to the
Urlted States for a large amount on ac
count of the Alabama claims aforesaid;
and wherdeas, this hous Is most desirous
that th burden should fall as lightly upon
the Imperial treasury a possible; there
fore, "Resolved, That this house do Immedi
ately, through his excellency the governor
general, Intimate to her most gracious
majesty, the queen, that should sh be
graciously pleased to cede this province to
the United States as payment In part of In
full of such claims, sues cession will meet
with the cheerful consent of this hous;
provided always that the United Btates
will admit this province Into th .union as
a state, with all th rights and privileges
now held and enjoyed by any of the states
comprising such union containing a Uk
population, and upon such terms, financial
or otherwise, as may be agreed upon by
such Joint high commission, the terms of
such cession to b sanctioned by th gov
ernments of Great Britain and the United
States, and to be ratified by the people ef
this province at th polls."
Nothing aver came of the movement.
