8TILL BELIEVE8 THE OLD DOC
Hon. Wm. V. Allen. ex-United
States Senator from Nebraska in a
recent letter to the editor of the
Nebraska Independent, declares h.s
abiding faith in Populism and the
principles upon which it is founded
as the following extract unequivo-
cally indicatts. Says Mr. Allen:
"I have faith in the populist par-
ty; faith in its principles; faith in
its continued existence, and faith
that it will grow and under its pres-
ent or some other acceptable name
ultimately be triumphant in the
United States. I have not the slight-
est notion of deserting its standard
or of permitting the organization to
go down if I can prevent such a
disaster. I admire many things in
scientific socialism. The socialism
of Marx and Bellamy would be of

'ial material. Bill made quite a repu
tation in the state of Missouri as a
lobbyist for the baking powder
trust which attorney Folk is after
now wfth a sharp prod. We have
heard Senator Stone accused of
nearly everything save that of being
a Statesman and we see no reason
why he should not make a model
j democratic candidate. We fail to
see, how ever how a man like Bryan
can look upon him as an acceptable
democratic candidate for it would
seem to us that the chasm between
Bryan and Stone was to great to
bridge. Senator Stone is a politi
cian pure and simple while Bryan is
more of a statesman and less of a
Perfect Re plr «lon.
For perfect respiration two things
are necessary—chest capacity and
breath control. The average individual,
woman especially, uses but a limited
portion of the lungs and upper cheat
in ordinary breathing. Whenever a
little unusual physical effort makes de-
mand for an extra breathing capacity,
Bote how she puffs and pants, almost
to a point of gasping. The reason for
this is that the muscles of the lower
chest, waist and abdomen have become
well nigh atrophied through neglect
and abuse. They are stiff and unre-
sponsive and have now to be coaxed

Cleveland seems to be the
talked of man in connection
the democratic nomination in 1904.
That their is a big undercurrent
in the democratic party to nominate
Cleveland in 1904 is quiet evident.
Bryan sees it and unlike atter-
son who is trying to head off the
Cleveland movement, thinks Cleve-
land should be the democratic nom-
inee should the party pass into the
control of the reorganizes. The
difference between Bryan and Pat-
terson is that Bryan adhers to the
Chicago and Kansas City platforms
and Watterson is a reorganizer
who does not want Cleveland.

It is nuite as possible to educate j
these muscles so that they shall re-

that our hands are trained to do our
bidding. Different teachers will advo-
cate different forms of breathing—up-
per chest, side chest, lower chest and
abnormal breathing—but what we

' control of the muscles as shall enable
us to make use of any desired form of
breathing at the word of command, for
all forms have special values. I ull up-

The Truthful Pioneer.
1 "One day," said the truthful pioneer.
••I was whacking up some wood down
by the crock, and ten Indians loomed
up. They were pretty thirsty even for
Indians, and they said they knew I
had a jug somewhere, and they want-
ed to sample it. I had a log about half
1 split at the time, and the ax was *tick"
iug in it. I told them if they would
help me get that log in two I would
show them where the jug was. So they
I took hold, five on one side and five oa
the other, and pulled. And when
took the ax out the log sprung together
and held them all by the fingers. Then
I walked away to the house and loaded
s the shotgun and three or four pistols
and then went back and argued with
them, and they reformed light away.
This story, says the Nebraska .-tate
Journal, was originally told of Daniel
Boone or Davy Crockett and has done
good service ever since. It is not copy-
righted, however, and there is no good
reason why Nebraska pioneers should
not use it.

The general impression is that mus-
sels do not move. They fasten them-
selves to certain objects or they lie in
the niud and sand at the bottom of the
water, and there they pass their exist-
ence. In proof of this the fact is ad
duced that mussels are at times buried
under the sandy deposit when a rush
of water carries a lot of soil with it. A
naturalist who has devoted much time
to the study of these creatures says
that mussels do move slowly, and the
movement is accomplished in the fol-
The mussel opens its shell nnd pro-
jects its body to a certain extent from
its projecting case. Then it exerts some
force whereby it keeps the shell above
the soil and uses its body to propel it-
self along the bottom Just in the same
way as a Innd snake gets over the
ground. If the sand Is examined after
the mussel has taken one of these
strolls, it will lie easy to see two paral-
lel lines caused by the edges of the
shell touching the ground.
The Wild GirnlTe.
Perhaps the most difficult of all wild
animals to capture is the giraffe. In
addition to being very rare giraffes are
exceedingly timid and are very sw in
footed. There is no special way to cap-
, ture a giraffe, as almost every way has
been tried, and all have been almost
1 equa 11 v unsuccessful. The method which
has occasionally resulted in a capture
is by using a long cord, at each end of
which is a round weight. This cord Is
thrown by the hunter in such a manner
as, to wind round the animals legs,
either bringing it to the ground or ren-
dering it incapable of escaping before
it is made a prisoner. Most of the
giraffes in captivity have been caught
by chance when young.

LovemnkinK In Mexico.
In northwest Mexico the courting is
all done by the lady. The young people
meet at the feasts, and there the dam-
sel who has fixed upon a member of
the opposite sex whom she wishes to
become her husband tries to attiact his
attention by dancing before him, per-
sistently keeping her back turned to-
ward him. Eventually she may si
down near him and pull his blanket
and sing to him in a gentle, low voice.
When she desires to bring matters to a
focus, she begins to throw pebbles at
the chosen one. If be throws them
back at her, they are betrothed.

Snuff Vernon Good Humor.
Interesting notes on the snuff takinK
habit are furnished by the German au
thoritles of the district known as the
Bavarian forest. The men there con-
sume on an average half a pound of
snuff per day, the tobacco being mixed
with ground glass "to sting better.
The people in this district are much
given to violence, and attacks with the
knife are of daily occurrence. For
years the prison authorities experi-
enced great difficulties with their
charges on account of their uniform ob-
stinacy and finally lilt upon the plan of
depriving them of snuff. They say that
after awhile n great change for the bet-
ter was noticeable, the men becoming
tractable and sensible of tlielr degrad

Cicero says that -the glance of all
women with the double pupil in the eye
is noxious, blighting and withering. ,
Cadmus tells us that such persons |
would not drown. Still others say that
if they did drown the body would nev

could cure the disease of the chest

vidual. and in case the double pupils
