Tides In ths Great Lakes
In theory there m.it be lunar tides
of the great lakes, although they may
be too small to be detected In bodies
of water and much more affected by
winds and by differences in barome-
tric pressure. This latter Influence is
so potent that in Lake Michigan it
sometimes csuses disturbances re-
sembling the waves when the surface
of the water is otherwise quite calm.
Two miles from Kamakura, and
about thirty from Yokohama, in
Japan, on a terrace near the temple,
sits tho most gigantic idol In ths
world. It is the brazen image of a
diety, and dates from the reign of
Emperor Shomu, who died A. D. 748
The dimensions of this idol are col
ossal. Its height from the base of
the lotus flower .upon which it sits, to
the top of its head, is sixty-three and
one-half feet. The face Is sixteen
feet in length and nine and one-half
feet wide, the S|SS are three feet,
nine Inches £|pm corner to corner,
the eyebrows five and one-half feet,
and the ears are eight and one-half
feet. , The chest Is twenty feet in
depth, and the middle finger is exact-
ly five feet long.

"I had Diabetes," Mrs. Bowers says,
"my teeth all became .loose and part
of them came out. I passed a great
deal of water with such burning sen-

about 40 pounds in weight. I used
many medicines and doctored with
two local doctora but never got any
better till I started to use Dodd's
Kidney Pills. They cured me so com-
pletely that In three years I have had

School Children's Dyspepsia.
The common form of dyspepsia, or
indigestion, which stops the growth,
pales the cheeks, weakens the system
of so many school children, is often
due to Improper or too quickly eaten
lunches. While seeing to a correc-
tion of the cause, it is also Important
to cure the disordered conditions of
stomach ai:d bowels. This can be
done by no medicine so safely and

Women forget that sentiment Is

Every housekeeper should know
that If they will buy Defiance Cold
Water Starch for laundry use they
will save not only time, because it
never sticks to the Iron, but because
each package contains 16 oz.—one full
pound—while all other Cold Water
Starches are put up In %-pound pack-
ages, and the price is the same, 10
cents. Then again because Defiance
Starch is free from all Injurious chem-
icals. If your grocer tries to sell you a
12-ox. package It Is because he has
a stock on hand which he wishes to
dispose of before he puts In Detlance.
He knows that Defiance Starch has
printed on every package In large let-
ters and figures "16 ois." Demand
Defiance and save much time and
money and the annoyance of the iron
•ticking. Defiance never sticks.

Are Never Without P#-ru-na in the Home For
Struck Ground Again.
At a small station in tbe north of
Ireland an old man, carrying a carpet
bag, and accompanied by an old wom-
an, evidently his. wife, entered the
train. It was apparent from their ex-
presalons of curiosity, mingled with
anxiety, that this was their first rail-
way Journey. The train started, and
they both looked eagerly from the win-
dow, and as the speed Increased a look
of keener anxiety gathered on the old
woman's face. A few minutes later
the train ran on to a long bridge, the
sides of which could not be seen from
the carriage window. With a little
shriek the old woman clutched her
husband's arm. Meanwhile the train
sped onwards, and was soon once
morion solid earth. The old woman
was quick to note the change. Her
features relaxed, and she sank Into
her .seat with the fervent exclamation
Under date of January 10,1897, Dr.
I Hartman received the following letter:
"My wife has been a sufferer from a
complication of diseases for the past
twenty-five years. Her case has baffled
the skill of some of the most noted phy-
sicians. One of her worst troubles was
chronic constipation of several years'
standing. She was also passing throug!
that most critical period in the life of>
woman—change of life.
"In June, 1895, 1 wrote to you about
her case. You advised a course of
Peruna and Manalin, which we at once
commenced, and nave to say it com-
pletely cured her. * >
"About the same time I w 3te you
about my own case of catarrh, which
had been of twenty-five years' standing.
At times I was almoet past going.

'Col. Albert A. Pope was talking
about a man who, at an automobile
race, had rejoiced greatly, thinking
his own car had won, when, as a mat-
ter of fact, the victor had been an-
other-man's car, of similar construc-
tion, which he had mistaken for his
'Poor fellow," said Col. Pope, "he
felt, I fancy, like a young friend of
mine, who took his pretty wife to the
theater the other night.
"After the play was over and my
friend and his pretty bride had got
into their carriage and were on the
way home, she leaned toward him af-
fectionately and said:
" 'Dear, you shouldn't have squeezed
my hand while we were coming out
of the theater. When I squeezed back
I meant for you to stop.'
'Me? Why,' stammered the hus-
band, 'I never touched your hand.'"
Why Clergy Never Strike.
Archbishop Ireland Is generally rec-
ognized as a power for good In set-
tling labor troubles. During a recent
meeting attended by strike leaders
and employers at which the archbish-
op was present the prelate remarked
Incidentally: "It is well known that
clergymen do not go on strike." One
of the labor men took upon himself to
answer the prelate's comment. "You
may depend upon It," he said, address-
ing the bishop, "you certainly would
go on strike If you worked by the
day, but, you see, you work by the
Upon the advice of the bureau of
forestry at Washington the Gulf, Col-

months ago began to experiment with
wooden tie-plates. These plates are
intended to protect the tie from wear
under the rail. They are cut the
width of the bottom of the rail and as
long as the tie is wide—usually six
or seven Inches—and are kept In place
by the weight of the rail, In a flat
groove in the tie.
