SENATOR A GOOD FRIEND.
Amos Holman, a lad twelve years
old, was arrested for entering the
Belt Grocery at Shawnee and steal-
ling a small amount of money from
,the cash register. The youth secured
■an entrance by scraping the putty
from one of the window lights and re-
moving the glass, crawled through

To the housewife who has not yet
become acquainted with the new things
of everyday use in the market and
who is reasonably «atisfied with the
old. we would suggest that a trial of
Defiance Cold Water Starch be made
at once. Not alone because it is guar-
anteed by the manufacturers to be su-
perior to any other brand, but becaus*.
each 10c package contains 16 ozs.,
while all the other kinds contain but
12 ozs. It is safe to say that the lady
who once uses Defiance Starch will use
no other. Quality and quantity must

His Beer Capacity Ruined
Louis Gurber, a Philadelphia mus-

for injuries sustained through the de-
railing of a car. He wanted $5,000.
On the stand he declared that pre-
vious to his injury he was able to
drink fifty or sixty glasses! of beer a
day. but that now the best he could
do is less than twenty. The court In"
quired gravely: "Would that be
claimed as an element of damage?"
Gurber's counsel thought it ought to
be, and apparently the jury thought
so, too, for the plaintiff was given a
verdict of $1,000 on account of hi
Every housekeeper should know
that if they will buy Defiance Cold

each package contains 16 oz.—one full
pound—while all other Cold Water
Starches aio put up in %-pound pack-
ages, and tho price is the same, 10
cents. Then again because Defiance
Starch Is free from a!! injurious chem-
icals. If your grocer tries to sell you
a 12-oz. package it is because he has
a stock on hand which he wishes to
dispose of before he puts in Defiance.
He knows that Defiance Starch lias

Quay Willing to Go Fa# to Serve
Those He Liked.
As Illustrating that the late Senator
Quay never forgot a kindness, it is
said that he went up to the White
House one morning during President
McKinley's first administration and
asked that a woman be appointed post-
mistress of a small town in Missis-
"Ask me for anything In Pennsyl-
vania," said the president, "and it is
yours. This place Is promised, and
the circumstances are peculiar. The
two factions of the party in Mississip-
pi have agreed on the person who is
to have it. As it is the first point on
which they have come together, I can-
not set aside their wishes."
"Before the war," said Quay, "when
I was a young man, I taught school for
three years in Mississippi. I made my
home with the parents of thi3 woman,
and they treated me as a member of
the family. They have been unfortun-
ate, and the daughter needs this place.
I hope, Mr. President, that your an-
wer is not final."
The president shook his head.
"I regret it very much,'- he said,
■"but under the circumstances no otb
er answer is possible."
"Very well," said Quay, as he turned
to go. "I hope wheh the next Republi-
can convention is held, Mr. President,
that the eighteen votes from Missis-
sippi will compensate you for the six
ty-four from Pennsylvania."
"Have you got it so much at heart
as that, Senator?" asked the presl
"I have," replied Quay. "I have
tried to show you how much I have it

ily who had been kind- to the senior
senator from Pennsylvania when he

One who went with Col. Younghus-
aand to Lassa wrote of the hardships
encountered as follows: "Despite the

"Gobbler's" Big Egg.
My little grandchildren are mixed
on the subject of eggs. While 1 was
walking with them one spring morn
lng Dorothy exclaimed:
"Hark! I hear a hen cackling; she
is singing because she has just shelled
out half a dozen Easter eggs."
They were visiting my vegetable
collar last Sunday and I showed th£m

fin In a large basket of straw. And
'hey said it was a big "Easter egg.'

very wise, and exclaimed:

The Weight of a Crowd
In view of the recent disaster In a
Brooklyn church, the question of the
jweight per Bquare foot or per, square
Jyard of a crowd of persons Is certain-
ly one that Is In need of discussion
Jand application. In Cosmos, of Paris,
a recent article gives considerably
space to this question. The writer In,
Cosmos deals with the experiments
recently conducted by a German
architect, Hunscheldt, who found that
the weight per square meter of a;
crowd of human beings varied with
the character of the units. Thus the
weight per square meter for a group
of laborers was 1,200 pounds with a
certain number of men, but this
weight could bo Increased to 1,300
pounds and even to 1,500 pounds, for
the same surface. In the case of
school children aged from 14 to 18
years it was found that the weight
varied from 1,050 pounds to 1,176
pounds and 1,230 pounds. It seems,
from the writer's conclusions, that in
all cases where the surface is Intend-
ed to support a crowd of people the
calculations for the support should be
on a basis of from 1,200 to 1,30(1
pounds per square meter.

What Everybody Says.
Jamboree, Ky., April 3rd.—(Spe-
cial.)—"I suffered for years with my
back," says Mr. J. M. Coleman, a well
known resident of this place. "Then
I used Dodd's Kidney Pills and I have
not felt a pain since. My little girl
complained of her back. She used
about one-half box of Dodd's Kidney
Pills and she is sound and well."
It is thousands of statements like
the above that show Dodd's Kidney
Pills to be the one cure for Backache
or any other symptom of deranged
kidneys. For Backache Is simply a
sign that the Kidneys need help.
Dodd's Kidney Pills always cure
Backache. They also always cure
Blight's Disease, Diabetes, Dropsy,
Rheumatism, Bladder and Urinary
Troubles and Heart Disease. These
are more advanced stages of kidney
disease. Cure your Backache with
Dodd's Kidney Pills and you need
never fear them.
An Alphabet of Names
Many years ago there was a shop
kept in the Rue de Louvain in Brus-
sels by Therese O, and there is a
Mme. O living with her two children
at Molenbeck, a suburb of the Bel-
gian capital. In the Rue de l'Angle,
In the same commune, lives a Mr. O
(with a circumflex accont). who Is no
relative of Mme. O. In I860, among
the Belgian recruits, was a young man
O, who could not write, and signed his
name with a cross, yet he could so
easily have learned to write his own
name. In the department of Somme
'there is a village called Y; In the
Zuyder Zee there Is a bay called Y,
and Amersterdam has the river Y. In
the Chinese province of Homan there
Is a city called U; and in Franco
there is a river, and In Sweden there

EFFECTS OF PROSPERITY.
In the six years of the country's
greatest prosperity, from 1897 to 190.1,
average prices of breadstuffs advanced
65 per cent., meats 23.1 per cent, dairy
and garden products 50.1 per cent,
and clothing 24.1. All these were prod-
ucts of the farmer and stockman who
profited more than any other class ol
the community by these advances.
The miner benefited 42.1 per cent by
that advance In the average price ol
metals. Tho only decrease In th«
average prices of commodities In thai
period was in railway freight rates
which decreased from .798 per ton-
mile in 1897 to .763 in 1903, a lost
of 4.4 per cent. The report of the In-
terstate Commerce Commission showi
that the average increase in the pay
of railroad employes In the period wai
a trifle above 8.5 per cent.
