GRADES OF RANK IN J4PAN.
Society There Is Divided Into Man
A traveler just rrt'irnn1 from 1' .n
tells Rome things which perhaps all
the world does not know. Says he:
"Of rank there are eight classes after
the mikado and the Ziogoon namely
(1) the princes (2) the nobles who
owe feudal service to the prince or
the empire; (3) the priests; (4) th
soldiers. These four form the higher
orders and enjoy the privilege of
wearing two swords and petticoat
trousers; (5) inferior officials and doc-
tors called respectable allowed to
wear one sword with the trousers;
(ti) merchants and tradesmen whose
le-rs may noi pollete the trousers
though by entering as domestics to ft
man of rank they may enjoy the privi-
lege of weit.-'n'r f.ne pwovd; thrc are

We often hear men talking about
taking the best care of their health
when they are really doing the worst
thing possible for it. They are the
worst possible enemies of their stom-

about their digestion and expressing a

STOPPED TO FINISH CIGAR.
When President McKinley Kept Mayor
of Boston Waiting.
City Messenger Leary tells a story
of hla official experience with Presi-
dent McKinley and his famous foot-
long black cigars at the time when the
president was in Boston.
"I went into his room" said Mr.
Leary "to find out when he would be
ready to meet Mayor Quincy. He was
puffing at one of those big cigars that
he had made specially. 'Sit down and
have a smoke' said he. 'I came to find
out how soon you would be ready to
meet the mayor' I said. 'In about five
minutes' he replied. 'Perhaps' I sug-
gested 'you would like to finish your
smoke.' T should very much' was the

president would be ready in three-
