ARSENIC TO POISON TREES.
Simple Method to Get Rid of Unwel-
A gardnerer discovered the fact re-
cently that trees are often sent to an
untimely death by poison, usually ar-
senic.. The reason for this does not
appear until one hears the man's ex-
planation. Suppose a man has rented
a house which has too much shade,
the law will not allow him to have
one or more of the trees cut down,
without the consent of the owner. As
it often happens that tenants and
landlords hold different views on the
Bubject of shade the trees remain as
a bone of contention. It is then that
the gardner is called on to administer
a dose of poison, for when a tree is
(lead the tenant may have it removed.
Five cents' worth of arsenic is suf-
ficient to kill a large tree. A hole is
made in the trunk, the arsenic drop-
ped in and nature does the rest. It
Employ Fewer Servants.
There has been a considerable de-
crease in the number of domestic
servants in Paris since the law was
passed taxing families in an increas-
ing ratio In proportion to their num-
ber of servants. Much of the work
Is now done by women or men who
are hired by the day.
Sure Cure at Last.
Monticello, Miss., Oct 3 (Special)—
Lawrence County is almost daily in
receipt of fresh evidence that a sure
cure for all Kidney Troubles has at
last been found, and that cure is
Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Among those who have reason to
bless the Great American Kidney
Remedy is Mrs. L. E. Baggett of this
place. Mrs. Baggett had Dropsy.
Dodd's Kidney Pills cured her.
"I was troubled with my kidneys,"
Mrs. Baggett says in recommending
Dodd's Kidney Pills to her friends,
"my urine would hardly pass. The
doctors said I had Dropsy. I have
taken Dodd's Kidney Pills as directed
and am now a well woman."
Dodd's Kidney Pills cure the kid-
neys. Cured Kidneys strain all the
impurities out of the blood. That
means pure blood and a sound ener-
getic body. Dodd's Kidney Pills are
the greatest tonic the world has ever
"If you could tell a woman's age by
her teeth, like her horse's" remarked
the Observer of Events and Things,
"a woman would be more inclined to
keep her mouth shut."—Yonker's
Storekeepers report that the extra
quantity, together with the superior
quality of Defiance Starch makes it
next to impossible to sell any other
Doors for Special Occasions.
Many old houses in Holland have a
special door, which is never opened
save on two occasions—when there is
a marriage or a death in the family.

CURED HIM OF KICKING.
flentle Hint of Hotel Manager tc
An Incident that greatly amused
Thomas Taggart occurred at the
French Lick Spring hotel, situated on
property of which the Democratic
national chairman is part owner.
Among the steady patrons of the
hotel was a chronic kicker. Nothing
In the accommodations suited him.
The climate made him suffer agonies,
and the society and general surround-
ings bored him to the last degree. He
was not backward in making his
The manager resolved to check the
complaining or get rid of the guest.
The next time the man told him a
tale of woe the wily landlord sympa-
thized with him.
"You do suffer greatly," he said as
he turned away, "but think how much
worse it is for me than for you. I
have to stay right here and endure it.
You can go whenever you please."
The man did not go, but he never
complained in the manager's ..earing
again.—New York Tribune.
Whistler First Told This.
It often was said among the ac-
quaintances of the late James McNeill
Whistler that he would rather make
a new enemy than a new friend. Of
course, he was eccentric and pecu-
liar, but those who knew him well
swore by him.
As an artist he was a master, and
he loved all things beautiful. He was
fond of books and poetry and occa-
sionally he wrote some verses him-
self, but could never be prevailed up-
on to publish them. He was a good
critic, and knowing this, a friend
came to him one day with some
verses written by a young man who
wanted an honest opinion of them.
After reading the verses Whistler
handed them back to his friend, who
"Do you think he can sell them?"
"I don't know where."
"Well, what do you think he ought
to get for them?"
"If he throws himself upon the mer-
cy of the court, I should say about six
Better Than We Think.
We f:.-et at this, we fume at that.
We murmur if We suffer pain;
Much fault we find if we are fat,
If we are lean it is our bane:
We grumble if we see it rain.
And haply from the sun we shrink;
But though we nurse a peevish strain,
The world is better than we think.
And if a comrade wear a hat.
To criticise him wq are fain;
And we are often vexed thereat
If 'tis his whim to sport a cane;
If he be glad we call him vain,
If he be sad from him we slink:—
But what from cavil shall we gain';
The world is better than we think.
And If we chance to meet a rat,
It is our wish that he be slain,
And straightway we procure a cat
That she his odious blood may drain:—
But life is iife and in the main
'Twere nobler not to break Its link-
Compassion should control the brain;
The world is better than we think.
Friend, guard yourself from every stain—
And when life's freer drnfts you drink.
Love's beams for you shall never wane:
The world is better than we think.
—A, T. Schumann.
The widow of a wealthy but irrev-
erent man wished to have an impos-
ing funeral for her departed, and en-
gaged the services of a noted preacher
who lived at a great distance from
their town. After the funeral she
thanked the eloquent man for his long
and beautiful discourse. The minister
said to her:
"Madam, when I passed through
your town I noticed quite a number of
churches. As your husband always
lived here, he must have been known
to the ministers of this place. I ain
at a loss to know why you engaged me
to speak at his funeral, as I am a
stranger to him and they knew him."
"The reason I employed you to
speak was that the others knew him
too well," answered the widow.
A Proper Roar.
A few days ago George Ade, while
conducting a rehearsal of his new
comedy, "The College Widow,' at the
Garden Theater, was greeted by a
stranger. "I am very glad to meet
you Mr. Ade," said the stranger. "I,
too, am a playwright and I would like
to have some advice from you. I have
completed a play and all arrangements
have been made for the production ex-
cept one little detail. I have a scene
where wild lions are supposed to be
roaring. I have been unable to find
any stage appliance that will make the
noise desired. Can you tell me how I
can get this effect of the roaring
"Just fine one of your actors $2,"
was Ade's reply.—New York Tele-
One day Gen. Wood attended the
funeral of a friend, and, waiting for
the procession to start, the inevitable
garrulous citizen stepped up to him
"Sad about poor Jones, isn't it?"
"Very," replied Wood.
"And yet," persisted the citizen,
"his pretty little widow doesn't seem
quite broken-hearted. I suppose bet
composure is due to her pastor's as
"Don't you believe it," said the gen-
eral; "it Is due to her late husband's

Springs, Began to Fear the Worst.

Mrs. Sarah Marine, of 428 St. Urain

ot (he Glen Eyrie Club, writes:
"I suffered for three years with se-

it was only a
waste of time
and money to
take them, and
began to fear
that 1 would
never get well.
A friend ad-
vised me to
try Doan's Kidney Pills. Within a
week after I began using them I was
so much better that I decided to keep
up the treatment, and when I had
used a little over two boxes I was
entirely well. I have now enjoyed
the best of health for more than four
months, and words can but poorly ex-
press my gratitude."

Oak Splits a Rock.
A wonderful freak of nature is an
oak tree In the far west, which has
grown up from a sapling into a wide-
spreading. handsome tree through a
rock of flint stone, splitting the mas-
sive rock by the tremendous pressure
of its vigorous growth. No one living
knows how long nature has been as-
sisting this oak in its work of stone-
crushing. The oldest people In the
neighborhood recall the tree in their
childhood and experts in forestry say
that it must be fully 200 years old.
The Bank of England.
The Pank of England generally con-
tains suflicint gold in sixteen pound
bars to make 20,000,000 sovereigns.
The bank, which stands in three par-
ishes In London, covers three acres
of ground and, as the current price of
land in the vicinity works out at
£1,000,000 an acre, it is easy to form
an idea of the money value of the
home of England's wealth. The
ratable value is nearly £1000 a
week. The bank employs about 1,000
people and pays £250,000 a year in
wages and £35,000 a year in pen-
sions. Thero are £25,000,000 worth
of notes in circulation which have
been handed over the banks coun-

LARGEST IRRIGATION ENTER-
PRISE IN AMERICA.
The Twin Falls Land and Water
Company, located on the Snake river,
twenty-four miles south of Shoshone
station, the largest irrigation enter-
prise in America, involving an expen-
diture of over two million dollars and
reclaiming two hundred and seventy
five thousand acres of the richest
valley lands in the state of Idaho, Ib
now practically completed and will be
delivering water on the lands within
the next sixty to ninety days. The
main canal, sixty-nine miles long, is
eighty feet wide at the bottom, one
hundred and twenty-four feet at the
top and carries ten feet of water. The
project is being constructed under the
Carey act, and comes under fie im-
mediate supervision of the Idaho
Stato Land Board. Last fall the Land
Board authorized the opening of 30,-
000 acres of this land to public entry,
and notwithstanding the fact that no
water would be delivered this year,
all of this land has been absorbed.
The State Land Board now authorizes
the opening of an additional 100,000
acres at noon, October 20th, at Twin
Falls City, and a great rush is expec -
ed. Mr. Masqueray, chief of desigrs
of buildings and grounds at the
World's Fair, St. Louis, has desigueu
a hotel and towusite known as Twin
Falls City, In the heart of these land3,
and a $50,000 hotel is now under con-
struction, besides numerous buslnets
blocks and residences. Over $60,000
worth of town lots havp been sold
within the past sixty days. The Ore-
gon Short Line, at an early date, will
begin the construction of a orancb
line from Minidoka through the heart
of these lands to the new town ot
Twin Falls City.
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-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 has
prit.ted on every package in large let-
ters and figures "16 ozs." Demand
Defiance and save much time and
money and the annoyance of the iron
sticking. Defiance never sticks.
