Man might often take from the low-

himself when ill. All sorts of animals
suffering front fever eat little; lie
quiet in dark, airy places, and drink
quantities of water. When a dog loses
Ills appetite lie knows where to find
dog grass, which acts as a purgative
and emetic. Sheep and cows, when
ill, seek certain herbs. Any animal
suffering from chronic rheumatism
keeps as far as possible from the

WHERE IS HER HUSBAND?
Microbe of Gray Hair.
They have discovered a new mic-
robe in New York and it is quite popu-
lar among actors and society women,
it is called the chromophage, its spe-
cial function being to turn the hair
gray at a comparatively early age. The
handsome actor who has those white
hairs on his temple that the women
admire so ia full of the chromophages.
ltaldlieaded men are immune from the
microbes. He only attacks the hair,
and a man without hair need not wor-
ry about the chromophage. For years
it was thought that a process of the
blood killed the coloring matter of the
hair cells, but sealpologists in New-
York combat that theory. They say
it is the chromophage. The microbe
does not like heat and for that reason
the woman who uses the curling tongs
is less likely to have gray hair than
the one who puts her hair up in pa-
Heavy Cost of Unpaid Postage.
One of the most curious contests
ever before the public was conducted
by many thousand persons under the
offer of ti e Postum Cereal Co., Ltd..
of Rattle Creek, Mich., for prizes of
31 boxes of gold and ;!00 greenbacks
to those making the most words out
of the letters Y-I-O-Grape-Nuts.
The contest was started in Febru-
ary, l!>0ti, and it was arrauged to have
the prizes awarded on Apr. 30. 190iJ.
When the public announcement ap-
peared many persons began to form
the words from these letters, some-
times the whole family being occupied
evenings, a combination of amuse-
ment and education.
After a while the lists began to
come in to the Postum Office and be-
fore long the volume grew until it re-
quired wagons to carry the mail.
Many of the contestants were thought-
less enough to send their lists with
insufficient postage and for a period
it cost the Company from twenty-five
to fifty-eight and sixty dollars a day
to pay the unpaid postage.
YouiSg ladies, generally those who
had graduated from the high school,
were employed to examine these lists
and count the correct words. Web-
ster's Dictionary was the standard
and each list was very carefully cor-
rected except these which fell below
8000 for it soon became clear that
nothing below that could win. Some
of the lists required the work of a
young lady for a solid week on each
individual list. The work was done
very carefully and accurately but the
Company had no idea, at the. time the
offer was made, that the people would
respond so generally and they were
compelled to till every available space
in the offices with these young lady
examiners, and notwithstanding they
..'d steadily, it was impossible
complete the examination until
29, over six months after the
prizes should have teen awarded.
This delay caused a great many in-
quiries and naturally created some
dissatisfaction, it has been thought
best to make this report in practically
all of the newspapers in the United
States and many of the magazines in
order to make clear to the people the
conditions of the contest.
Many lists contained enormous
numbers of words which, under the

1 years. At first it would break out
: only in winter. Then it finally came
' to stay. I had three good doctors to
i do all they could, bi}t none of them did
1 any good". I then used one box of
! Cuticura Ointment and three bottles
of Cuticura Resolvent, and was com-
pletely cured. My hands were taw
all over, inside and out, and the ec-
zema was spreading all over my body
and limbs. Before I had used one bot-
tle of Cuticura Resolvent, together
with the Ointment, my sores were
nearly healed over, and by the time
1 had used the third bottle, 1 was en-
tirely well. 1 had a good appetite and
was fleshier than I ever was. To any
one who has any skin or blood dis-
ease I would honestly advise them to
get the Cuticura Remedies, and get
well quicker than all the doctors in
the State could cure you. Mrs. M. E.
