THE FIRST COMPASS.
Waa Known io Ballon Before Ik*
Adjunct to navigation.
Borne Asian people, perhaps ths Chi-
nese, discovered, many centuries ago,
that a kind of iron ore possessed a very
peculiar quality. We call this or*
magnetic ore. In more common lan-
guage. I odes tone, and It is very widely
distributed, especially in the older
crystalline rocks. It was found that
If a bit of lodestone were placed In
water upon a piece of cork or straw
I braid It would turn till the asls of the
' stone assumed a north and south posi-
tion. A phenomenon of magnetism had
been discovered by means of an ore
that Is peculiarly suaceptlble to mag-
It Is an open question whether tho
Chinese utilized the directive power of
the lodestone, but It Is certain that the
flrst rude compass was not used on
European vessels before the twelfth
century of our era. By that time ths
true magnetic compass had been
evolved through the discovery that If
an Iron or steel needle were stroked
on a lodestone It would receive the at-
tractive and directive power of this
' ore. With this wonderful appliance
placed at the service of navigation, the
vessels that had hugged the coasts soon
dared to venture even out of sight of
land. A new impetus was gradually
: given to cartography, for now the true
| directions of the coast lines might be
I charted with some approach to accu-
racy. It was the hapy fortune of Ital-
ian sailors to make the surprisingly ex-
cellent surveys of the directions and
lengths of the Black sea and Mediter-
ranean coasts and along the Atlantic
to Erltlsh waters that have come down
to us In the so-called Portulan maps.—

The Lady and the Tramp.
Mrs. Alden was a clubwoman. Her
particular fad was the moral elevation
of the lower classes. She was engaged
i In writing a paper on the subject when
f the cook came to tell her that a rough-
looking man at the back door wanted
"Give him a soup ticket," said Mrs.
Alden. Then, with a sudden thought—
"No, wait. I'll see him myself."
She went Into the kitchen. "My
good man." she said, "will you saw
some wood, If I give you a good break-
"Certainly, madam." said the tramp,
; very elegantly, as he disappeared in
the direction of the woodpile. In about
I five minutes he reappeared. "I'm ready
now for that breakfast," he anonunced.
"Have you sawed the wood in such a
1 short time?" aHked Mrs. Alden, coming
I again Into the kitchen.
1 "Yes, madam," he answered. Then,
I between huge mouthfuls: "Excuse me,
I madam, for correcting you, but you
I should say, 'Have you soen tho
I wood?' "

In all there are some 46,000 pensioners

On the morning of the calamity,

threatened by the lire. Col. Jeaae
Fuller, pension agent, had a detail ol
five tegular soldiers placed In the of-
fices, who. with the male clerks, were
ordered to sponge all embers that came
on the windows, and to do everything
pooalble to save the papers of the
agency, which were thrown from the
cases pellmell on the floors snd mixed
with plastering and other debris. Suc-

Harvey Stiles, the California man
who was Induced to locate in the cit-

orchard at Beevllle. The trees are now
eight or ten years old, snd have not

not surprised at the failure of the olive
He says ;t Is a fact not generally
known that but one variety of olives
produces successfully In American
soils. This is the tree that was Intro-

southern California. Trees planted by
the nionks 150 years ago survive and
are lu good condition, bearing annually.
In all other lines of tropical and sub-
tropical fruits the Texas citrus fruit
section Is a great success, and the or-
ange and lemon orchards, as well as
the dates and figs, are making wonder-
ful suitresses. Mr. Stiles is conducting
an experimental farm and nursery at
Klngsvllle, where the most remarkable
things are being done with native and

Oklahoma City, Okla.—Tho question
of labor for this year's wheat harvest
Is causing Oklahoma farmers consider-
able uneasiness now. Not for many
years has there been such a scarcity
of farm labor as this season; In fact,
labor of all kinds Is scarce In Okla-
homa. The unusual prospects for a
large crop of wheat and the increase
in acreage over former years are go-
ing to make lots of work in the har-
The flrst Oklahoma wheat will be
harvested within a few weeks, and
very few rarmers know where they
are going to get help. Correspondence
has been heavy between the Oklahoma
wheat growers and the employment
bureaus of the different states.
A great deal of the labor la fur-
nished thla way, but the offering this
year to Inadequate to the demand.

18 AN ACTUALITY.
Law and Order Porces of South Mc
Alester Form Organisation.
South McAlester, I. T-—The
much talked-of law and order league
is at last an actuality. It* officers
ire; J. A. Stalcup, president; Dr.
A. Griffith, vice president; Frank
Hathaway, secretary and R. B. Mc-
Adatns, treasurer As announced,
the piirTisees of the league are very
mild—simply to maintain the law
ind order in McAlester.
Rue under this there is a deter-
mination to push the issue of Sun-
daw baseball and tli-atrej and it is
almost a certainty that the league
will apply fur warrants against the
participants in trjtv.orrow s game
and the managers of the little Sans
Souci park. The publis is anxiously
awaiting the outcome.
There is some little friction be-
tween Rev. J. H Coates, one of the
iSf '"Rue. and Mayor
Chapman. Rev. Coates is alleged
to have declared that Mayor Chap-
man gave the police orders to be
easy upon certaoin persons of easy
ways of doing. The mayor denies
that he ever issued any such order
and declares that South McAlester
morally and every other way, is the
equal of any town in the territory.
There seems to be but little doubt
that the matter the enforcement
of the law on Sunday will divide
the town into factions.

There are two classes of remedies; those of known qnal-

gently, In harmony with nature, when nature needs assist-
ance; and another class, composed of preparations of
unknown, uncertain and Inferior character, acting tempo-
rarily, but injuriously, aa a mult of forcing the natural
functions unnecessarily. One of the most exceptional of
the remedies of known quality and eirellence la the ever
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California
Fig Syrup Co., which represents the active principles of
plants, known to act most beneficial I y. In a pleasant syrup,
In which the wholesome Callfomian blue Acs are used to con-
tribute their rich, jet delicate, fruity flavor. It is the remedy
of all remedies to sweeten and refresh and cleanse the system
gently and iiuturally. and to assist one in overcominir consti-
pation and the many ills resulting therefrom. Its active princi-
ples and quality are known to physicians gen, rally, and the
remedy has therefore met with their approval, as well as with
the tkvor of many millions of well informed persona who know
of their own personal kuowletlge and from actual experience
that It is a most excellent laxative remedy. We do not claim that
It will cure all manner of Ills, but recommend it for what it really
represents, a laxative remedy of kuown quality and excellence,
containing nothing of an objectionable or injurious character.
Tbwe are two elasaes of purchasers; those who are informed
as to the quality of what they buy and the reasons for the excellence
of articles of exceptional merit, and who do not lack courage to to
elsewhere when a dealer offers an Imitation of any well known
article; but, unfortunately, there are some people who do not know
and who allow themselves to be imposed upon. They cannot expect
ita beneficial effects if they do not get the genuine remedy.
To the credit of the druggists of the United States be it said
that nearly all of them value their reputation for professional
