How to "T ke Life E« y.'
Taking lif« by the easy handle does
not mean that one is to neglect duties
till they pile up in front like a small
mountain and dare one to forget them.
It means a faithful performance of
necessary duties as they show up and
an avoidance of useless ones. It
means doing a little bit each day and
forgetting for the moment that there
is anything to carry forward to tlie
next day. There are two exasperating
classes in the world, those who work
too bard and those who will not work
at all. They are much larger than
the third class, irpie up of reasonable
men and women who do their duty as
soon as they see it and take pleasure
as it comes. Modern life is complex
under any circumstances, but it is not
the struggle some would have us be-
lieve unless we voluntarily add to our
New York—After all their trouble,
the police of Kingsbridge have no
murder to investigate. They have no
mystery to solve, and they realize that
things of the sensational brand rarely
happen In the rural district of the
Bronx. All they have is remorse and
one very imaginative Yonkers news-
paper man, who takes dreams too se-
riously and reality too lightly.
It all came about in this way. The
reserve squad of the Kingsbridge sta-
tion were selecting their garden seed
from ihe catalogues, while the lieuten-
ant in charge was telling his wild ex-
perience when he visited Broadway
long ago. Suddenly there came a ring
at the telephone—that of itself is ex-
citing in Kingsbridge—and an agon,
ized voice moaned:
"Mercy! Aid! Help!" And then,
more weeping. "Succor!"
"What's wrong?" asked Lieut. Lar
"Oh, it's too awful to tell! I am a
newspaper man from Yonkers, and
I have just come from the Scottish
Arms, in Van Coriandt park. They
have stabbed my best friend to death
there. Two women held him down,
and then, when he was dead, dragged
him from the room."
The man who was telephoning said
that lie was at Two Hundrd and Forty-
second street at the subway station
and would give the police all details
of the terrible crime if they would
First came the mounted men, then
the sleuths, then the regular or gar-
den variety of dark blue policemen,

The Medical Fee.
The American Medical association
our highest medical authority, has
never attempted to establish an eth-
ical fee. In point of fact, the fee
evolves itself and ever has been and
ever will be a graded one. The great
bulk of practice is practically charity
—that is, it represents small fees or
no fees. This is true alike in the re-
mote country districts and in the
great metropolitan centers. There is
one difference, however, which should
be distinctly remembered, and that is
that rural charity is generally de-
served, whereas urban charity is often
misplaced. It is stated that practical-
ly 33 per cent, of the entire practice
of New York city is charity, and that
in a third of such cases the doctor is
imposed upon.—North American Re-

Crowding Out All Native Things.
In New Zealand, the native Poly
nesian race, crowded by Europeans, is
becoming extinct. Many of the im-
ported animals run wild and multiply
rapidly at the expense of the native
species, even the streams being filled
with European and American trout,
which grow to great size. Introduced
plants thrive quite as remarkably
New forests are being created design
edly because the native trees, though
yielding excellent timber, grow very
slowly, and already many millions of
larches,* oaks, spruces, Douglas firs
and eucalyptus have been planted,
while seedlings from them are being
Mons. Lapicque informs the French
Society of Biology that 25,000,000 hu-
man beings in the Congo region com
monly employ salt of potassium in
stead of salt of sodium for seasoning
their food. They obtain this salt from
the ashes of certain plants. Recently,
since the opening up of the country,
ordinary salt has been largely im-
ported, but the negroes regard it as in-
sipid, and abandon with regret the
use of their familiar ashes. They
take the imported salt only because it
is cheap.—Youth's Companion.

'My Nice, Fat Friend Has Been Mur-
The Eternal Puzzle—Baby.
Not so very ions ago it was cus-
tomary to treal children as if they
were stupid and naughty grown-up
people. Now there is a tendency to
run to Ihe opposite extreme, and to
treat them as if they were a great deal
cleverer than their parents. There
are even people who set themselves
deliberately to study" their children in
much ihe same spirit as a biologist
would study a new kind of germ.—

Produced lor Ihe tirst time in
in charge of Sergt. O'Leary and De-
At the appointed place near the end
of the subway they met the man who
had telephoned. His tale was wild
so was bis expression, and so were
the mounted men, the detectives, the
uniformed men, and the three dogs.
It was awful. With Carey trail-
ing in the rear the cavalcade started
for the hostelry. When the scene of
the crime was reached men were sta-
tioned at every possible exit and
O'Leary went to the front door and
"In the name of the law, Commis-
sioner Bingham and the Kingsbridge
station, I demand entry." he roared.
"Aw, go as far as yer like," came
from the first floor.
"There has been a murder here,"
said O'Leary, as soon as one of the
employes of the hotel appeared. "A
murder, cold, dastardly, cowardly and
also described with many other adjec-
tives and adverb3, but that is not for
now. Where is the victim, where are
the murderers and when was it did?"
The employe denied that anything
like this had happened. Everybody
was quiet all night, except a man
named Carey, he said, who came from
Yonkers and who wanted a Welsh
rarebit made with mince pie instead
of toast, and who had claimed that
submarine boats couM be used as aer-
oplanes if fed properly and treated
■with loving kindness.
"No," sobbed Carey, who had come
Into the room, "it is not so. My friend
has been murdered. My nice, fat
friend named 'Bill.' They stabbed him,
and now they've thrown his body otlt
on the golf links. Call the coroner."
Most of the persons who were stop-
ping at the hostelry had fled by this
time. Some clambered Into their auto-
mobiles, carrying their clothing with
them, while others were satisfied to
run for the subway. Then there was
some more investigation and once
more the bold cavalcade started back
to the erswhile restful Kingsbridge
station. First, the mounted men, then
the detectives, then the uniformed
man, with the three police dogs In the
rear. Their home was gone, but Carey
10c - - 20ctS wasn't. He went, too.
Russian Railroad Building.
Russia's ministry of ways of commu-
nication demands about 80,000,000 ru-
bles (a ruble equals 51.5 cents) for
new railway construction. Out of this
amount are to be taken the funds for
building the Amur road, double-track-
ing the Siberian road, building a
bridge across the Volga at Yaroslalt
and connecting the Kusslan and Fin
nish railway systems at St. Peters-
Birth Rates in India.
According to official returns, the
birth rate for the several provinces of
India In 1907-1908 was as follows to
every 1,000; Central provinces, 52.
The Punjab and United provinces oc
cupy second and third place, respec-
tively. Bengal, 37.70; Assam, 37.01 _
Madras, 30.8. Bengal was formerly a
long way ahead of ail the provinces,
but has now fallen to fourth place.
New Triumph for America.
America has now triumphed over
Egypt and India in holding what will
soon be the largest irrigated tract of
desert land in the world. This is what
is known as the Twin Falls country
in the state of Idaho. The ultimate
area under irrigation, when the entire
Twin Falls project shall have been
completed, will be 1,350,000 acres.—

ECZEMA CURABLE? PROVEN!
TRY A HERALD WANT AD.
Attorney at Mollne, III., Convinced by
Oil of Wintergreen Compound.
There is nothing that will convince
a lawyer except evidence.
Now, here is some rather startling
evidence of a simple home cure for
eczema which convinced one lawyer,
F. C. Entriken, attorney at Mollne, 111.
He tells how oil of wintergreen com-
pound mixed with thymol and glycer-
ine, as in D. D. D. Prescription, cured
him in thirty days after thirty-two
years of suffering.
"For 32T years," writes Attorney En-
triken, "I was troubled with eczema,
scabs all over my face, body and head.
I could run a hair brush over my body
and the floor would be covered with
scales enough to fill a basket. I tried
everything—salves, Internal medicine,
X-Uay—all without result."
"Just a month ago I was Induced
to try D. D. D. Prescription. The Itch
was relieved instantly; so I continued
It Is just a month now and I am com
pletely cured. I have not a particle
of Itch and the scales have dropped
"I can only say again CURE DIS-
COVERED.. I am now starting all
eczema sufferers on the right track."
Cure after cure has been brought to
our attention and always that Instant
relief from the awful itch. 2.
