It Is an old saying that if the stom-
ach is sound the whole body is safe,
because so much depends upon the
proper working of the stomach. Many
persons find themselves with a dis.
order of the stomach which pro-
duces dyspepsia or a peculiar state ol
If you suffer from both stomach trouble
and constipation you are on the way to a
very serious disease. From just such con-
ditions come appendicitis, rheumatism,
skin diseases and similar disorders, be-
cause the waste matter that should have
been dispelled from the system through
the bowels has found its way into the
blood and vitiated it. What is needed at
this point is not. simply a violent cathar-
tic tablet or salt, which usually does more
harm than good, but a gentle laxative
tonic like Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin,
which people have ' een using for these
ailments for nearly a quarter of a cen-
tury. It cured J. C. Lanham, of Warrens-
burg, Mo., of stomach trouble of long
standing, also William Voll, of 903 Ellison
St., Louisville, Ky., who had the trouble
for fifteen years. , x
However, if you have stomach trouble
you want to know from personal experi-
ence what Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin
will do for you. If so, send your name to
the doctor and a free trial bottle will be
sent you. You are urged to send for the
free bottle, as the results from it will be
the best recommendation of Dr Cald-
well's Syrup Pepsin. Then you will do as
over two million people did last year-go
to your druggist and buy a regular bottle
at 50 cents or $1. according to the size you
prefer. We could mention hundreds and
hundreds of families who are never with-
out it. You can never tell when
some member of the family will need
laxative, and then no time should
taking Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
If there Is anything about
your ailment that you don't
understand, or if you want
any medical advice, write
to the doctor, and he will
answer you fully. There is
no charge for this service.

Work of Fish Hatcheries.
As the result of special efforts in
the hatchery work during the year
the output of fish and eggs in 1908 was
greater than ever before in the history
of the national bureau, reaching a to-
tal of 2,871,456,280. Of this number
2,413,809,225 were young fish distrib-
uted for the stocking and restocking
of public and private waters, and the
remaining 457,647,055 were eggs de-
livered to state and foreign hatcheries.
The output of young fish exceeds the
greatest previous record for any one
year by 376,000,000.

Fattest French Soldiers.
Occasionally our Paris contemporar-
ies entertain their readers with an ac-
count of the tallest and the shortest
conscript. Now a journal has gone
one better and discovered the fat-
test recruit in the French army, who
has been found at Corbeil. This hon-
orable distinction belongs to M. La-
verdit, the son of a merchant in the lo-
cality. The young man turns the scalc
at 268 pounds, avoirdupois, or rath«
over 19 stone.
Starch, like everything else, is be-
ing constantly improved, the patent
Starches put on the market 25 years
ago are very different and inferior to
those of the present day. In the lat-
est discovery—Defiance Starch—all
injurious chemicals are omitted, while
the addition of another ingredient) in-
vented by us, gives to the Starch a
strength and smoothness never ap-
proached by other brands.
Nothing But the Truth.
Attorney (much baffled by the an-
swers of an Irish witness)—Well,
you're a nice sort of a fellow, you are!
The Witness—Shure, an' I'd say the
same of you, sir, only I'm on me oath.
The poor, unsuspecting Indians said
to Christopher Columbus and his men:
"Habana," meaning, in their language,
Hence came the name of the beau-
tiful and enchanting city of Havana.
They show you here, the gnarled,
venerable looking tree, under which
Columbus treated with the Indians.
This city was founded in 1519, being
101 years before the landing of the
Pilgrim Fathers at Plymouth Rock.
Havana is in fact a big urban sec-
tion of old Spain, set down here on
this noble island in the new world.
. Take up the map and locate your-
self at Jacksonville, the wide-awake
and pushing emporium and metropolis
I of Florida. Then go 477 miles south
along the eastern coast of that state
to Knight's Key. There you are near-
ly 100 miles out from the southern
point of the mainland of Florida, hav-
ing been carried there over water and
At Knight's Key you take a steamer
and can make the day trip to Havana
over the indigo blue waters of the
Gulf of Mexico, from 7:30 a. m., to 5
p. m. of the same day.
You first see to the southward and
southeastward the mountains of Cuba.
Then later the lighthouse and the
Marconi wireless telegraph station at
Soon you see the famous Moro
Castle itself, and then the splendid
never-to-be-forgotten sight of the city
of Havana, with its charming pink and
yellow tints, its sea wall, its entrance
to the bay under the frowning looks
of Moro Castle and the famed old
fortress of Cabanas.
Your boat does not go to the dock
on this line, but is anchored in the
bay, near to the ghastly remains of
the wreck of the Maine, which project
above the water.
A tender comes alongside, but no-
body seems to be in a hurry, for you
are new outside the belt of the north-
ern hustle and push and are in the
land of "manana" (to-morrow).
The most striking features of the
city of Havana are the Prado and
The Prado is to Havana even more
than Pennsylvania avenue is to Wash-
ington city, Fifth avenue to New York
city or Grand Boulevard to Chicago.
It i3 as wide or wider than Penn-
sylvania avenue and is the most beau-
tiful street, all in all, and with its
parks and its junction with the Male-
con, that one could wish to see.
There is a central line of trees, flow-
ers, and grass; then on each side of
that, wide, paved promenades, and on
the outer side of these promenades
another line of trees, flowers and
grass; then a splendid driveway on
each side, and the sidewalks on each
gide of the street. Like in the case of
Fifth avenue, New York, no street
cars are allowed on the Prado. Ex-
ploring the Prado from Colon (Co-
lumbus) park, going northward, you
pass through India park with its beau-
tiful statue of an Indian maiden, sym-
bolizing the city of Havana; then you
pass through "Parque Central" (Cen-
tral park), with its classic looking
statue of Jose Marti, the patriot.
Soon, at the gulf end of the Prado,
you come to the beautiful stone pa-
goda called "The Glorietta," embel-
lished with the inspiring names of
Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Strauss,
Verdi and Wagner.
The Glorietta is the stand occupied
by the splendid bands at their fine
evening, open air musical concerts.
Surrounding the Glorietta is a vast,
nicely paved plaza, covered with seats
painted green, to harmonize with the
color of the leaves and with the green-
appearing rim of gulf waters that
dashes against the sea wall a short
The president's palace, Columbus
cathedral, Mercedes cathedral, Moro
Castle and old Cabanas Fort, on the
inside, are all very interesting, as also
many other buildings, including an in-
spection of a great cigar factory.
In Columbus park you see some
very fine specimens of the royal palm.
Columbus cemetery is most beauti-
ful, with its wealth of Italian mar-
ble monuments and statues and its
wonderfully artistic floral decorations.
Never to be forgotten are the fine,
dark, lustrous eyes of the women and
girls of Havana. Their eyebrows and
long ejelashes set off and fit the eyes
to a dot. At Minneapolis, Minn., a
very large proportion of the young
women and girls wear glasses, and at
Boston a proportion almost as large.
Here no young women or girls wear
glasses. No doubt, their eyes do not
need the glasses, and, besides, these
Cuban sirens and enchantresses know
too well the witchery of those eyes to
be willing to shut them off from the
world with glasses.
The streets of Havana are nearly
all very narrow.
Obispo and O'Reilly, the principal
business streets, are parallel, and next
to each other. They are both so nar-
row, not more than 20 feet wide In-
cluding the narrow sidewalk on each
side, that carriages and vehicles must
go but one way on each, passing down
the one and up the other, like an end-
less chain, going from Central park on
one and back on the other. The same
thing is true of most of the other
streets, but the people are so kind,
polite and obliging, that not much
friction results in the traffic. There
is a wealth of fine, artistic merchan-
dise in the stores and the people are
not afraid of bright colors.
In Havana there is hardly any di-
viding line between eating and drink-
ing. A place to drink is a place to eat
also, and a place to eat is equally a
place to drink. All these places are
called cafes and restaurants. One of
the large ones has this sign out:
"Cafe Restaurant el Popular," wh&h
in English would be "The Popular
Cafe and Restaurant"
Another sign reads: "Gran Nectar
Habanero," which means "Grand place
for good cheer for the Havanes."
Fluids and solids are dispensed to-
gether, and not separately. Nobody
unless It be some American or Eng-
lishman, stands up at a bar and gulps
down fiery drinks.
Great numbers of seats and tables
are everywhere in their almost open-
air way of doing all these things, and
the people, men, and to a considerable
extent women also, sit at these tables,
have tea, coffee, wine, or what they
may wish, not much strong drink be-
ing used. At the same time they have
rolls, bread, cake, or what they may
like to eat, the eating and drinking
In this way the drink, in connection
with the solids taken, and together
with the natural secretions and sol-
vents of the stomach and the alimen-
tary canal, undoubtedly constitutes a
food, and adds to the food value of the
If we were not so self-sufficient, we
could gain important lessons from the
Latin nations and from the Germans
in the matter of handling the drink
PRETTY TOUCH OF SENTIMENT
Hotel Man Provides Carnations for
Guests in Memory of His
A traveling man carefully adjusted
a carnation in his lapel at a club din-
ner a few nights ago In one of the
private dining-rooms at the Astor. "Do
you know"—he turned to his neighbor
—-"I never see a carnation without re-
calling a bit of sentiment I found out
in Ohio. There is a little hotel at
Ashtabula—the Stoll house—and as
each guest is seated for dinner the
waitress places a carnation before him
with the menu card. This being an
attention not expected by transients
at hotels in small cities, I inquired of
the girl if the occasion was one out
of the ordinary.
•"No,' she replied, 'we give every
guest a carnation each day at dinner.'
"When she had gone for my order
an old salesman seated next confided
to me: 'Years ago Mr. Stoll's life was
centered in a beautiful little daughter.
She took great pleasure in distribut-
ing carnations to the boys of the road
who Sundayed here, at dinner. Death
took her away, and from that day to
this the carnations are a feature of
the excellent table not only Sundays,
but every day.'
"Somehow," and the diner caressed
the flower in his buttonhole, "I have
looked on a carnation with reverence
The Walrus' Defenses.
A full-grown walrus will weigh as
much as 2,000 pounds; a mountainous
mass of muscle and blubber. He Is
armed with tusks of ivory, sometimes
two feet in length, and when from
his upreared bulk these formidable
weapons are plunged downward upon
an enemy, they are resistless as the
drop of a guillotine. Such a thick lry-
er of blubber lies under the skin tLat
he is practically clad In an armor im-
pervious to teeth and claws alike. So,
unless the bear Is greatly favored by
luck, he has little chance to overthrow
his antagonist.—St. Nicholas.
The man who married a girl who
had received a medal in cooking
school soon arrived at the conclusion
that it must have been a leather c \e.
