hope will lead them to a solution of

a cabman who claims to have driven a

avenue and Sumner street a short
time prior to the hour in which the
murder is supposed to have been com-
mitted. She carried a satchel, and
after leaving the cab walked rapidly
toward the Burdick house. The police

SENATOR DEPEW'S FINE COOK.
New York Statesman Said to Have a
Senator Depew has in his employ
an interesting personage to whom he
pays a salary of $100 a month and
who ranks first among the employes
of the Corcoran house. This per-
sonage is a woman, a graduate of sev-
eral cooking schools and a past mis-
tress in the art of political economy.
She ranks ahead of the housekeeper
and is really the major-domo of tho
kitchen and pantries. Senator Depew
prizes her services beyond those of
any other person connected with the
j Corcoran house. It is a fact that
| since this woman took into her hands
iho reins of domestic government not
one of Senator Dopew's famous din-
ners or suppers has been mismanaged

The Humor of Soldiers.
I During the siege of Ostend during
Queen Elizabeth's reign, which Sir
j Francis Vere was defending for the
English against the Spaniards, a sol-
dier having bought a loaf of bread
1 was holding it up in a boasting way
when a shot took the uppermost half,
leaving the other in the soldier's
hand, who, finding that hu had receiv-
ed no hurt, said: "It was a fair-
conditioned bullet, for it has left the
better half behind." This man was
the benefit of their health. Our Bill-
ville authors will hold a convention
at an early date to perfect plans for
advertising their genius. Sealed
propositions will be received from
One Way to Reduce Weight.
Congressman I.essler of New York
was the smallest man physically in
the house last session, weighing
only 110 pounds. On the eve of ad-
journment "Hank" Smith of Michi-
gan asked him: "What are you go-
ing to do next summer?" By way of
a joke Lessier said: "First thing I
am going to reduce my weight."
"How are you going to do it?"
drawled Smith, "cut off a leg?"
his head in the recent war in South
Africa, exclaimed, "Mates, I've Just
ad a free 'air cut."
Are Short on Scripture.
On the last legislative day in the
house several congressmen quoted
scripture while making short
speeches, some of them displaying
woeful lack of accuracy. Mr. Vandi-
ver of Missouri commented on these
misquotations, and by way of bur-
lesque recalled this alleged extract:
"And the cow and the bear shall
feed: their young ones shall lie down
together, anil the lion shall eat straw
like an ox." Prolonged laughter and
the fall of the hammer cut Mr. Van-
diver off from further elucidation.

Metals and Microbes.
Prof. Raoul Pictet has proved that

tically immured in a block of frozen
air, enjoy good health.
Millionaire Acts as Motcrman.
Alfred G. Vanderbiit amused him-

He Means It.
New Berlin, 111., March lGth.—Mr.
Frank Newton of this place speaks
very earnestly and emphatically when
asked by any of his many l'riends the
reason fcr the very noticeable Im-
provement in his health.
For a long time—over two years—he
has been suffering a great deal with
pains in his back and an oil-over feel-
ing of illness and weakness. His ap-
petite failed him and lie grew gradu-
ally weaker and weaker till lie was
very much run down.
A friend recommended Dodd's Kid-
ney Pills and Mr. Newton began to
take two at a dose, threo times a day.
in a very short time he notlccd an im-
provement; tho pains left his back
and he could ea' better He kept on
improving and now he sa;v:
"Yes, indeed! I am a different man
and Dodd's Kidney Pills did it all. I
cannot tell you how much better 1 feci.
I am a new man and Dodd's Kidney
Pills deserve all the credit."

WAS REFUSED LIFE INSURANCE.
Rejected on Account of "Coffee Heart."
Life insurance companies have fully
established the fact that the use of
coffee causes an organic derangement
of the heart, shortening the long beat
and imperiling life. For this reason
habitual cofTee drinkers are refused
life insurance in many eases. A well-
known merchant of White's Creek,
Tonn., proprietor of a large store
there, says: "Three years ago I was
examined for life insurance and to my
surprise was rejected because my
heart action was at times out of place
15 beats in GO.
"I consulted several good doctors
and was invariably asked by them, 'Do
you drink ardent spirits? use tobacco?
or drink coffee?' To the first I an-
swered 'Very little,' to the second
'No.' to the last 'Yes,' and they would
all say Quit coffee.'
"I determined to do this. I had read
about Postum Cereal Coffee and nought
and used it, and I liked it as well as
the best of real coffee, and as a re-
sult of Its use In place of coffee I find
myself without a skip iu my heart
action and 1 can get insurance on my
life cheaper by 25 per cent (notwith-
standing the advance in age), than I
could when 1 first commenced using
Postum." Name furnished by Postuui
