Keep Yuucg by Science. 

Do you know why it is that fash- 
ionable woman looks as \.iiin;,' and 
rosy at 50 as the unfashionable wo- 
man at 30? It is because she takes 
care «)f herself. The uufashionable 
woman gets her beauty sle;.'p every 
night ami never dissipates in the 
matter of balls and little supperb 
prepared over tha blazer while the 
rest of the w.tIiI is ;isl.ep. She e.;' 
her three meals a tlay atid at ju: i 
the proper hours. Kvcrything on 
her table is wholes-Mue and intentled 
to keep her skin rosv and her liltl? 
body lissome. She thinkl it almost 
immoral to clog the pores of the 
skin with powder an l pomade. ;r.i 1 
she belives in nafare absolutely. 
.\nd just there is the diftereuce. 
The fashionable woman — or woman 
ofthevvorld. if you   hoo:^.-. for the 
fashionable w oman is hardly a broad 
enough term for the woman that is

She knows that nature is a w »iider- 
tul restorative, but she has infinitely 
more faith in art and science. When

A strange phenotnena has come to

at a crystal consciousness is partly

memories. l ogiv^' a few instances:

dark wall covered w ith white flow- 
ers. She was conscious she must 
have seen it stuuewhere. hut had no 
recollection where. She walked 
over the ground she had just travers- 
ed and found the wall, whichshe had 
passed unnoticed. 

She took out her bank book anoth- 
erda\. Shortix afterward she was 
ga/ing at the 1 rystal and saw nothing 
but the number one. She thought 
it w as some back number, but, taking 
up her bank book, found to her sur-

A Lesson tu Trusts. 

The news was announced Monday 
that tin- I niou 'Tohaec 0 Company 
has obtained control of the hig plant 
of Liggett iV Myers in St. I.ouis. 
This means that the L'nion is to be- 
come a formidable comjjetitor of the 
Contineiital Tohaec o (*om]);:ii\ un 
less, indeed, it is an agent and ac- 
complice of the trust. .As the price 
both of ( 'ontinenlal shares and those 
of the .\iiieric un Tobacc ci Company 
had a heavy fall upon the announce- 
ment, the supposition that the Union 
is an ally is hardly credible. 

A ( ill umstanc e that goes far to c on 
firm the story that the I nion Com- 
pany has already absorbed the pow - 
erful St. I .onis csiahlishmenl i i that 
last week the L nion inc reased its 
capitali/aticm to $24,000,000. It 
began with hut Sio, 000,000 and ( \ 
pandeci to Si 2.000.000. then toS 1 1;. 
350.000, and now has more- thati 
doubled what it had at the start. 
The Continental Tobacco Company, 
orgaiii/ed with eight factories. I'.as 
since acciuired a number of other 
concerns. It seems to be engaged 
in a race to distance any possible 
competitor. However, i^ it hits fail- 
ed to get c ontrol of the St. Louis 
fac tory, as now appears, it has lost 
a big point ih. the game with Us 
younger antagonist. 

The report is very interesting, for 
it shows how impossible it is for even* 
the !)iggest trust to get rid of com* 
petition unless it   an ac|uire control 
of the raw material as the Standard 
Oil Company has been able to do. 
The same reasons which led to the 
formation of the Continental ins] ired 
the promoters of the I nion. The 
profits of the plug trade are enor- 
mous and it is impossible to keep 
capital from seeking such a promis- 
ing field. This is one of the natur- 
al laws of trade, and Is not to be ig- 
nored by even the most power- 
ful combinations. The Interation- 
al I'aper Company is already faced 
with the construction of immense 
new mills whic h in time may clividc 
its trade as thoroughly as the inde- 
pentlent refiiieries have encroached 
on the business of the Sugar 'Trust. 
The Federal Steel, the Rubber and 
other trusts will eventually meet the 
same fate.

so distressing, but /. a,,.! il he better 
both for the consumer of plug and

could be a great number of small 
factories rather than two muminoth 
concerns. — Courier-Journal.

Like most things in this'w'orld, es- 
pecially like moat stimulants, tea has 
its and its bad side. When 
taken in moderslMNI*^ bjT one 

w ith wilom it docs not disagree — for 
some persons cannot drink even a 
small cup without symptmiis of 
poisoning — tea is a stimulant and re- 
storative, relieving mental and bod- 
ily fatigue, promoting intellectual 
activity, curing a ••tired" headache 
and I ausing a most agreeable sense 
of well-being or even exhilarati*)n. 

Part of this effect is doubtless ilue 
to the hot water — in itself a power- 
ful stimulant — yet not all, for c dd 
tea acts almost equally well. When 
one feels (old. the heat ami the alka- 
loid ( afleii'.e or theine — in a   up of 
tea act as stimulant to the heart, in- 
creasing the rapidity of circulation 
and promoting the wart^h of the 
body. On the other hand. hi t tea 
is asserted to be cooling in hot 
weather by reason of the profuse 
Ijerspir&tion that it induces. 

The evil effects of overindulj^'cm e 
in tea are greater than the good cf- 
fe  ts just mentioned. Taken in c.\- 
cessiv e .piantity, or even in moder- 
ate ijuaniiiy by one with whom it 
docs not agree, tea causes marked 
dyspeptic and nervous diaturbanccs. 
Tea drunkards suffer frv m c atarrh of 
the stoniac li. Ilatuleiu e. i'na  tivitv of 
the bowels — or sometimes the re- 
verse — palpitation of the heart, ner- 
vous unrest, muscular twitchings 
and .\ itkefulness. 

Some people, who can usually 
drink tea without any evil conse- 
(piences. lind that they cannot do so 
if they happen to be worried or in 
mental distress; at such tiuu'S the 
beverage, instead of » heerlng, aggra

phia store last year were «)vcr Si, 
700,000 and that those from his 
New York establishment will run 
close to that figure. I'he Saturday 
before Christmas the receipts in 
New \ urk were even i^reater than 
ihoM.- in I'hiladclphia and e.xceeded 
5500.000. llie New Yoric store has 
paid a iirolit from the \erv dav it 
was opeiieii. although two firms 
which cKc ui u (l the establishment 
since .\. r. Stewart's death have 
failed. The reas m of Mr. Wanama- 
ker's j^reat success, both in New 
\ ork and i'hiladclphia, is his skill- 
ful and extensive advertising. It 
has been his rule to (ontine his ad- 
vertising to newspapers and maga- 
zines, on \\hi  h he has spent annual- 
ly more than 1^300,000 in Philadel-

It i.s true that our Danish friends 
point with loyal pride to the saceem of 
pasteurizing In tlieir fatherland and 
'iraM,' a vivid eontrast between tlw four 
xvotkers iu a Danish creamery and tiM

Pasteurisation of wliola milk or 
cream tests upon tlm assumption that it 
is dominated by damaging germs. It ia 
like tbedoctriucof total depravity. "It 
is a good doctriuu if people would only 
live np to it, " us the pld lady eaid. But 
at present the best we can do is to keep

J. H. Scott of Catiada, in a recent pa- 
per upon "Imnwtara Obeeoe, " specified 
the boxing of graeu cheeses and ship- 
ping them when only a few days old as 
most detrimental to the credit of tha 
products of tbo province. He considered 
that more cboese was spoiled by poor 
curing rooms than from an j other cause.

How ti  Tell Oleomarvarlae. 

The Kansas Agricnltural onllege dairy 
h'dis been experimenting with ether as a 
means of distingaisliing batwss u butter 
and oleouargarina. Take a very small 
piece of butter and oleomargarine, 
about tbe siae of a pinhead, and pUioe 
iu separate sp^ts on a clean piece of 
glass. A drop of ether placed on the 
butter will assume a wavy but some- 
what regular outline, whilu a drop 
plfteed on the nleomar^arine will hHve 
a rn^iKi'd outline very mneh like the ap- 
pearaucu of a cogwheel with tbo cogs 
sbarpened to a point.— Uvo StoA

The anxiety of oheesemakers to have 
tbeir cheese come early into market in- 
duces theiu to make a soft, porous cheese
