INS BEAUTY PRIZE
Columbia, Eskimo Girl, Gets
Majority of Visitors at the Alaska*
Yukon Fair Vote Her the Prettl-
est Young Woman in the
Seattle, Wash.—The prize awarded
the most beautiful -woman by the
Judges at the Alaska-Yukon-Paciflc ex-
position at Seattle was given to an
Eskimo girl named Columbia, from
the southern coast of Labrador.
All the visitors to the fair were al-
lowed to compete in the “beauty con-
. test.’’ All they had to do was to
visit the exposition in their best bib
and tucker, where they might be seen
by the unknown Judges mingling in
The prize was a valuable piece of
Seattle property, a lot in the residen-
tial section. The deed to this proper-

pride and her mother never lets a

Columbia’s mother was one of the
Eskimos brought from Labrador to be
exhibited at the World's Columbian
exposition in Chicago in 1893. Colum-
bia was born soon after so that now,
while shy of telling her exact age, we
are certain she is in her teens.
After the exposition Columbia’s
mother traveled throughout the United
States with a circus. Later the baby
went back to Labrador with her grand-
father and grandmother, to live in Es-
kimo land. Some time after this Co-
lumbia's mother went to Labrador as
the agent of a company to get Eskt

crossed the ocean. They also trav-
eled in Africa and throughout Spain.
The New Diamond Fields.
From the methods used to locate
the stones the new diamond fields in
German South Africa might very well
be called a Tom Tiddler's Ground,
says the Wide World Magazine. The
diamonds are very small, but are ex-
They are found in the open desert,
where nothing but sand, unrelieved
by the slightest sign of brush or shrub,
Is to be seen for vast distances. The
men who search for the stones—
needless to say, they are all natives—
have ten miles to go every morning
The searchers work on their hands
and knees, apparently regardless of
the blinding sunshine, sifting the
surface sand through their fingers.
Most of them are old Kimberley boys
and they are very keen on discovering
stones. The district Is hardly a para-
dise for the white man, being notori-
ous for its frequent dust storms and
The British Navy.
A correspondent in a letter to this
department gives the following
method adopted in England in the
matter of furnishing men for the navy
when the men are not picked up off
the street: “Excepting for stoker
class, all other classes are entered as
boys, are educated and trained and
after three years on a training ship
are passed for duty. Excepting those
whose ability is marked.—These are
allowed to spend an additional year in
the gunnery and torpedo departments.
Iu passing these are allowed addition-
al pay during term of enlistment
Hoys enter the navy of Great Britain
for 12 years, three of which are spent
t„ the training ship and nine in the
service. At the expiration of 12 years
they may re-eniist and serve on for
pension. Boys who can qualify and
are able to present recommendations
enter into training at from 13 to 16
years and are passed into the navy
from 16 to 19. The navy is thus filled
with young men from 16 to 28 years
About 6,000 are entered yearly for tbe
The Beet Food for Worker*.
The best food for those who work
with hands or brain is never high
The best example of this is found in
Quaker Scotch Oats. It stands at the
top among foods that supply nourish-
ment and vigor, without taxing the di-
gestion, and yet it is the least expen-
sive food one can eat.
This great food value and low cost
make it an ideal food for families who
want to get the greatest good from
what they eat.
Laborers, factory or farm hands, fed
plentifully on Quaker Scotch Oats will
work better and with less fatigue than
If fed on almost any other kind of
food. All of these facts were proved
and very interesting Information
about human foods were gathered by
Professor Fisher of Yale University in
1908. In addition to the regular pack-
age Quaker Scotch Oats is packed in
large size family packages either with
or without china dishes. 8
Labor Unions Fight Tuberculosis.
Ten fraternal and benefit organiza-
tions, with a membership of nearly
l.OOO.^OO, and three international la-
bor unions with a membership of over
100,000 have joined the ranks of the
fight«j*^ against consumption within
the laSi year, according to a state-
ment of the National Association for
the Study and Prevention of Tubercu-
losis. The fraternal orders and unions
now in the fight against tuberculosis
are the Modern Woodmen of America,
Brotherhood of American Yeomen, Or-
der of Eagles, Improved Order of
Red Men, Knights of Pythias, Royal

writer of the New York World, was

Presently a country operator drove
in to the Cobb camp and handed Cobb

“There’s a dollar to collect for de-
livering that message,” said the opera-
tor, "but I hate to take it. Somebody
along the line got it all balled up,
end they ain’t no sense to it.”
How to Care for the Child.
Perplexed mother writes: “My child
has sneezing fits after the morning
sponge bath. What would you ad-
vise?” Some mothers give their
babies a hypodermic of morphine for
sneezing. But we have always felt
that this was too harsh a remedy.
Give the baby about three tablespoon
fuls of Old Tom gin with a little sugar
and a pinch of lemon peel. The sugar
makes this remedy more grateful tc
the child. Be sure to keep this prophy
lactic away from father.

Coffee Usually Means Sickness, But
Postum Always Means Health.
Those who have never tried the ex-
periment of leaving off coffee and
drinking Postum in its place and in
this way regaining health and happi-
ness can learn much from the experi-
ence of others who have made the
One who knows says: “I drank cof-
fee for breakfast every morning until
I had terrible attacks of indigestion
producing days of discomfort and
nights of sleeplessness. I tried tc give
up the use of coffee entirely, but found
it hard to go from hot coffee to a
glass of water. Then I tried Postum.
“It was good and the effect was so
pleasant that I soon learned to love
It and have used it for several years.
I improved Immediately after I left
off coffee and took on Postum and
am now entirely cured of my indiges-
tion and other troubles- all of which
were due to coffee. I am now well
and contented and all because I
changed from coffee to Postum.

right every time than coffee, for it is
so even and always reliable. We
never use coffee now in our family.
We use Postum. and are always well.”
