Proposed Names for States
A writer who has been digging into
the forgotten records of a century and
a quarter brings up the fact that in
1784 a committee was appointed to
suggest names for the new territories
in the west. Here are some of the
fanciful names that were put under
consideration: Sylvania, Mlchigania,
Chersonesus, Assenisipia, Metropta-
mia, Polypotamia and Pelopelisipia.
You can tell you are in for a danger-
ous sickness as soon as you begin to
suffer from headache, constipation,
biliousness, etc., unless you quickly
take Dr. Caldwell’s (laxative) Syrup
Pepsin. This most successful cure for
all disorders of your digestive or-
gans, never fails to give relief
from all the irritant poisons, kept in
by clogged bowels, liver and kidneys.

He Speaks 400 Languages
Alfredo Trombetti of Bologna en-
joys an international reputation as
the world’s greatest linguist. He
speaks 400 different languages and
dialects, and is still adding to his
knowledge of strange tongues. Ever
since he was fourteen years of age
ho has been mastering the various
languages of the world, and he in-
tends shortly to come to America to
complete his knowledge of the dia-
lects of the Indians of the Rockies.
A GREAT INSTITUTION. -
It is unusual that a single institution in a
city of 8,000 people will overshadow in im-
portance every other interest, but such is
'.he ease with the American School of
Osteopathy, and A. T. Still Infirmary at
A stranger in Kirksville is immediately
Impressed with the idea that the town i.-
sustained by this institution, in fac;,
Kirksville has been made what it is to-day
by Dr. Still and his famous School and
Infirmary. It is the largest patronized un-
endowed’ institution of its Kind in the
Dr. Still's school enrolls over 700students
yearly and each student is required to at-
tend four terms of five months each before
completing the courseof study. The.-o are
over 2.000 graduates and they are prac-
ticing in everv state and territory of the
Union. About two-thirds of the stat
have passed special laws legalizing the
This school teaches every branch taught
in medical colleges except ••drugs” and
osteopathy is substituted for that. So
thorough is the teaching in anatomy that
over one hundred human bodies are dis-
sected yearly by the students.
. At the Infirmary, patients from ever,
part of the country and witli almost ever i
form of disease are constantly under treat
meat. For the past fifteen years alums!
every train coming to Kirksville ha.
brought some new sufferer hoping to find re-
lief by the science of Osteopathy. By tli
thousands who have left the institutio '
benefited bv the treatment, the science has
been heralded to the world as a safe and
rutional method of cure. Several years a
a free clinic was established in connection
»rith the practice department of the school
and this is still in operation. Hundreds ol
the worthy poor, who are unable to pay for
treatment, are treated every afternoon by
tho senior students free of charge.

"It affords me genuine pleasure to say
Hunt’s Cure excels any remedy I ever
saw for itch. I was badly afflicted with
this most annoying trouble and tried
many remedies without success. Final-
ly my attention was called to Hunt's

and less than one box completely

Princes Who Paint
Prince Eugen of Sweden, youngest
of King Oscar's four sons, is regarded
as one of the most accomplished land-
scape painters on the continent. He
spends most of the time in his hand-
some Paris studio. At the last salon
he exhibited three pictures under an
assumed name. The artistic world
acknowledged their merit, so now,
having won praise for his work, and
not because of his royal birth, he no
longer conceals his identity.
The Most Costly Gem

gem. If it were its value would he
fabulous, for it is seventeen times
larger than the famous Victoria dia-
mond, the largest of modern finds,
which was sold for $1,500,000. Its
value depends upon the use to which
it can be put when broken up, for it
is of the amorphous kind, known |
technically as carbon.
The P. S. Dept, of AKrIi-uuure
gives to Salzer’s Oats its heartiest en-
dorsement. Nalzer’s New National Oats
yielded in 1004 from 150 to 300 bu. per
aero in 30 different States, and you, Sir.
Farmer, can beat this in 1905, if you will.
Speltz or Kmmer, above illustrated,
given 80 bushels grain and lour tons liny
besides per acre. It’s wonderful. Salzer’s
seeds are pedigree seeds, bred up through
careful selection to big yields.
Salzer’s Beardless Barley yielded 121 bu.
Salzer’s Home Builder Corn.,* 300 bu.
Speltz and Macaroni Wheat,,.. 80 bu.
Salzer’s Victoria Rape.......... 00.000 its.
Salzer’s Teosintc Fodder.......160.000 lbs.
Saber's Billion Dollar Grass... 50.000 lbs.
Salzer’s Pedigree Potatoes..... 1,000 bu.
Now such yields pay and you can have
them, Mr. Fanner, in 1905.

Unique Picture Frame.
An idea equally new for a frame
and one made with much less labor
than the canvas work, is to paint with
water colors a striking, rather pro-
nounced flower, a poppy or an iris.
This then should be cut out and past-
ed on a background of Japanese gras3
cloth, vivid red if a poppy and blue
or green if an iris is chosen. The
whole then Is framed in passe partout
style. This gift costs very little and
is highly decorative.

Bows and Buttons.
Bows and buttons decorate so many
modish frocks that they play an im-
portant part in the trimming scheme
of the season. There are little short,
perky, cobby bows, and long, thin,
serious, straight bows—bows with
dangling tails depending, bows minus
tails. They are of black velvet, of
ribbon, of silk; they are of gold or
silver gauze, but of whatever shape or
material they are distinctly conspicu-
ous. There are loops of velvet cov-
ered cord and velvet buttons; there
are leaf shaped tabs of applied velvet,
with center of rhinestone and there
are charming enamel or diamante but-
tons and even old silver, not to men-
tion gilt and gun metal, comes into
the button field. Few- of these fancy
buttons serve as real fasteners, their
charm and their interest centering in
their decorative value, which, in most
instances, is sufficient to warrant the
attention that the button is receiving
just now-. Concerning the bow opin-
ions differ as to its decorative influ-
ence, but it can safely be said that one
tires more quickly of the bow than the
Souffle of Apple.
Pare, core and slice six or seven
fine, juicy apples. Stew them in a
double sauce pan, without adding any
water, -till quite tender. Mash these
to a pulp, stirring in two tablespoons-
ful of butter, a teacupful of white
sugar, and flavor with greated lemon
peel and nutmeg. When quite cold,
beat in first the yolks of four eggs,
and then alternately beat in the very
stiffly beaten whites and a cupful of
breadcrumbs. Beat for three minutes
till the mixture is a creamy batter,
then pour into a buttered pie dish,
cover with greased paper, which
should be kept on until ten minutes
before serving, as it will prevent the
juice from drying up and a crust form-
ing on the top. Bake for an hour all
together in a moderate oven, turn out
and sprinkle with sugar before serv-
Gown in Old Design.
A costume was worn at a reception
not long ago that was so original that
it was positively refreshing. It con-
sisted of a green velvet gown and
mantle of just the shade you would
imagine the heroine of a historical
novel would wear. The gown was
long and straight and fell In graceful
lines from the bare shoulders, being
loosely fitted at the waist. The angel
sleeves were fitted with raw silk in a
faint old blue, deeply embroidered up
from the hand on the inside in rich
purple, relieved with white. The dec-
olletage was embroidered with the
same design in seed pearls, amethysts
and turquoises, to carry out the color
The mantle was a graceful thing in
green, with blue and purple tones,
and draped over the left shoulder,
where it w-as fastened with a great
jeweled clasp of ancient design. The
whole was as truly mediaeval as any-
thing ever seen off the stage, and yet
the effect was not in the least start-
To be graceful and womanly in
dress Is an object worth striving for
and can never result in bad taste.

To whiten linen take one pound of
fine white soap, cut it up into a gal-

melted put in the linen and boil for

ing ready a lather of soap and wann

rinse it through two cold waters, with
very little blue in the last.

Three Essential Points.
The woman who wishes to appear
fashionable this season must insist
upon three small hut essential points j
when choosing her winter costume.
She must demand width across the ]
shoulders, a slender waist and nicely
rounded hips. Nor is it necessary to
contract the waist to give it the proper j
slim effect. The breadth of shoulder i
accentuates the smallness of the waist,
and a good modiste can accomplish
both with little inconvenience to her

Change in Corsets.
"There is quite a change in the
style of corsets for this season, says
a corset salesman. "A new style has
been made for certain figures that
have never before been shown. The
bust line will be lengthened. That
does not mean that old-fashioned, high
bust corset is coming in style agam.
but that there will be a crop in the
waist line. The high bust corsets
will probably never come in again, at
least for many years. Heretofore the
line below the waist has occupied so
much attention that the waist line has
been neglected, but this new form lias
remedied this defect. The styles that
prevailed in the last season will still
be good, but the new one takes care
of figures that have not heretofore re-
ceived much attention.
"The tendency in the corset market
is getting to be gradually toward
higher grade goods. Women are get-
ting more particular than they used
“It may seem si range, but a much
more expensive and higher grade cor-
set can be sold In South Africa than
in this country. There we can sell a

JAPAN A FEW YEARS AGO.
Extract From Henry Greville’s Diary
Is Interesting Reading.
In Hepry Greville's diary is an in-
teresting account of how Lord Elgin
carried a gift of a steam yacht to the
emperor of Japan. This was many
years before tho country was so thor-
oughly westernized as it is now. Gre-
ville says: "The people seem to be
courteous and extremely clean, form-
ing in this respect a remarkable con-
trast to the Chinese. They appear to
be a droll mixture of high civilization
and primitive simplicity. As a proof
of the former, the power of steam,
the electric telegraph, telescope, ther-
mometers and barometers are known
and In use, while the latter is shown
by ladies being constantly seen tub-
bing themselves at the doors of their
houses. The authorities, at first, re-
quested Elgin to retire, but on his re-
fusing and Insisting on carrying on
to Jeddo the steam yacht he was
charged to present to the emperor,
they acquiesced with a good grae«
and showed him every respect and
concluded the treaty between Japan
and Great Britain without difficulty.”
TO TELL BUTTER FROM OLEO.
Simple Test Which Is Claimed to Be
The cooking teacher indicated with
her wand two dishes, each containing
a pat of golden butter.
“One is butter,” she said. "The
other is oleo. I want to show you a
simple and conclusive te3t for oleo—
an easy way of distinguishing olec
and butter unmistakably. Then you
need never again be cheated.”
She put the oleo and the butter In
separate saucepans on the fire and
let them come to a boil. They boiled
in a very different manner—one nois
ily, with a great deal of spluttering,
the other smoothly, giving forth an
abundance of white foam.
"It is the oleo," said the cooking
teacher, “that boils noisily, for oleo is
a mixture of grease and water, and
like a mixture of grease and water II
boils. It is the butter that boils with
a soft, silent foaming. A great differ
ence, isn't there? Remember the dif-
ference, remember this test and you
need never be Inveigled In the future
Into buying oleo for butter.”—Chicago
Benny on the Crocodile.
The crocodile is a large animal the!
inhabits the Nile and loves to go on
the sandy beach to bask In the sun-
shine and lay eggs. It looks some
like a dachshund, only there is more
of it at the ends and it is bigger.
There was a crocodile once that es
caped from a circus. It roamed o’ei
the country, seeking in vain for pigs
and small children to devour, and
died of starvation in great anguish.
You can ride on the back of a croco-
dile, but it is more comfortable to
use a saddle. It is usually quiet, but
is terrible when roused. We all ought
to be thankful we are not a crocodile.
Would Make Sure About the Soap.
A little boy who had been blowing
bubbles all the morning, tiring ol
play, and suddenly growing serious,
said: “Read me that theory about
heaven; it ith tho gloriouth.” "I
will,” said the mother, "but first tell
me, did you take the soap out of the
water?" "O yes; I am pretty thure
I did." The mother read the do
scription of the beautiful city, the
streets of gold, the gates of pearl. He
listened with delight; but when she
came to the words, "No one can en
ter there who loveth or maketh a
lie,” bounding up, he said: “1 gueth
I’ll go and thee about that thoap.”—

Why Do You Walt?
Why do you wait till ears are deaf
Before we speak our kindly word,
And only utter loving praise
When not a whisper can be heard?
! Why do we wait till hands nre laid
Close-folded, pulseless, ere we place
Within them roses sweet and rare.
And lilies in their Hawless grace?
Why do we wait till eyes nre sealed
To light and love In death's deep trance
Dear wistful eyes—before we bend
Above them with impassioned glance?
Why do we wait till hearts are still
To tell them all the love is ours.
And give them such late meed of praise,
And lay above them fragrant flowers?
How oft we. careless, wait till life's
Swt-( t opportunities are past,
And break our “alabaster box
Of ointment" at the very last?
Oh. let us heed the living friend
Who walks with us life's common ways.
i Watching our eyes for look of love.
And hungering for a word of praise!

Mammoth Shrub With 900 Blooms.
A mammoth hydrangea bush, which
has borne a record-breaking foliage
this season, was recently exhibited In
Europe. The bush had more than 900
blooms. The highest bloom was 12
feet from the ground, and in diameter
the bush was 15 feet. It was planted
about sixteen years ago. and has re-
ceived no more than ordinary care.
Its thrifty growth is attributed chiefly
to the soil being perfectly adapted.
The counting of the blooms was rath-
ir a difficult task, as can well be

An English snake charmer named
Leyton was performing at a village
called Vaelklinger, in Rhenish Prus-
sia, in a menagerie with a boa con-
strictor, which she permitted to coll
round her neck. Her courage met
with thunders of applause from the
spectators, who little dreamed that by
their signs of approval they had seal-
ed the poor charmer’s death warrant.
Such, however, proved to be the case,
for, apparently infuriated at their
demonstration, the reptile tightened
its coils and amid the shrieks of the
public strangled the woman on the
platform before anything could be
done to assist her. The snake was

of being compelled to go to the trouble

CAUSE AND CURE
8hown by numerous cures made by

Kidneys and the Rheumatism cures
Itself—Remarkable case of Maggie
Eagle River, Wis., Jan. 16.— (Spe-
cial)—That rheumatism is caused by
disordered kidneys is proved by tho
euros Dodd’s Kidney Pills are making
in every state in tho Union. They
cure tho Kidneys and the Rheumatism
cures itself. A cure that has caused
deep interest in this neighborhood is
that of Maggie E. Deckert. In speak-
ing of it she says:
"I had kidney trouble and rheuma-
tism and was so lame I could not walk.
I could not sleep for I ached all over.
I was in a terrible state and firmly
believe that if I had not used Dodd's
Kidney Pills I would be dead. 1 took
nine boxes of them and they have
done me more good than all the other
medicines I ever took. Now my aches
are all gone, I can eat and sleep and
I am feeling good. I want all the
world to know that Dodd’s Kidney
Pills cured me.”
A negro preacher at the close of
the sermon, made an impressive pause
and then proceeded as follows: ‘ ‘I
hab found it necessary, on account of
the hawd times and de gineral de-
ficiency ob de hawd circulating

Every housekeeper should know
that if they will buy Defiance Cold
Water Starch tor 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 ia %-pound pack-
ages, and the price is the same, 10
cents. Then again because Defiance
Starch Is freo from all Injurious chem-
icals. If your grocer tries to sell you
& 12-oz. package it is because he has
a stock on hand which he wishes to
dispose of beforo he puts in Defiance.

ters and figures ”16 ozs.” Demand De-
fiance and save much lime and money
