Sausage, unless uomn qualifying
term Is employed, Ih a mixture of
cho|i|ind pork, vnal und beef. At any
rale, that. Ih the dndtdon of the recent
International congress for the reprea-
hIoii of food and drug frauds. The
Faria butchers do not like IIiIh defini-
tion, and insist that snusage proper
contains nothing but the meat of pigs.
They uHknd that qualifying terms be
used when beef or veal Is mixed with
the pork, but were overruled. It Is
rather late In the day to dispute over
sausages, says the Youth's Companion.
This culinary confection Is of ancient
lineage. King, In his curious nnd In-
teresting "Art of Cooking," remarks
that “Varlus Heliogabalus had the pe-
culiar glory of first making sausages
of shrimps, crabs, oysters, prawns nnd
lobsters." Elagabalus, us King should
have written it, wus emperor of Home
from the year 218 to 222, when he was
killed by his soldiers at the uge of 18
years, and is remembered for no wor-
thy act unless it be the Invention of
the crustacean sausage. But even the
sausage of Elagabalus could not com-
pare with the good old-fashioned coun-
try sausage made from fresh pork and
seasoned with peper and salt and sage
and various other herbs, the like of
which town dwellers rarely find in the
French and Good Roads.
The first international road con-
gress, recently in session iu Paris, was
undoubtedly inspired by the thrifty
impulses of the French people. They
have invested several hundred million
dollars in building macadam roads, of
which they already have 23,000 miles.
Their problem is to find means by
which the principal thus invested shall
not be lost. A kind of road had devel-
oped that met, there and here, the
traffic for which it was Intended. Iron
tires wore off just about enough dust
front the coarser fragments of stone
composing the road to replace that
carried off by wind and rain. In this
way the larger stones were cemented
together and a smooth, impervious
shell formed over the surface. But
the pneumatic tire has submitted the
road to a wholly different wear, and
the world must think out anew its
road-building problem. No one ques-
tions the possibility of automobile-
proof roads, but all the ways of build-
ing them now known appear decidedly

One of the distinguishing features of
current efforts to help those’ in need ;
is the abandonment of the old terms
used to describe the dependent or the I
otherwise unfortunate. Insane asy- j
Inins are now called hospitals, reform- i
atories are trade-schools, and truants'
homes are parental schools. The city |
of New York is building a parental
school for boys who cannot be kept in
the ordinary schools. It will consist
of 15 buildings on a hundred-acre
farm, with all possible arrangements
to make study attractive to the boys
committed to it. The whole will be in
the care of trained men and women
who have learned how ot develop the
good traits in the young.

BAD ITCHING HUMOR.
Limbs Below the Knees Were Raw-
Feet Swollen—Sleep Broken—
Cured in 2 Days by Cuticura.
"Some two months ago I had a hu
mor break out on my limbs below my
knees. They came to look like raw
beefsteak, all red, and no one knows
how- they Itched and burned. They
were so swollen that I could not get
my shoes on for a week or more. I
used live or six different remedies and
get no help, only when applying them
the naming was worse and the itching
less. For two or three weeks the suf-
fering was intense and during that
time i did not sleep an hour at a time.
Then one morning I tried a bit of
Cuticura. From the moment it touched
me the itching was gone and I have
not telt a bit of it since. The swelling
went clown and in two days I had ray
shoes on and was about as usual.

TWO GOOD STORIES BY BARRIE.
One Told by Successful Author Is De-
cidedly Against Himself.
Air. J. W. Barrie, the author of
"What Every Woman Knows," tells a
good story against himself.
A lady of his acquaintance had
taken a friend to see one of his plays,
and, quite astonished, he asked her
why she did so.
"Oh," was the reply, "it's such a
quiet street for the horses!”
He also lells of a playgoer who re-
ceived no response to his repeated re-
quests to a lady in front of him to
remove her huge hat.
At length, exasperated, he said: “If
you won't take off your hat, my dear
madam, will you be so kind as to fold
back your ears?"—Woman's Life.
