Includ ing drinking these are some of the thine tha delegate to the Democratic national contention must tako Into con tide rati on It fa would preserve hla normal dsgrt of health while they remata In. Dearer. Will he be care fall "Bo will not," emphatically declared Tammany man the other day, and added: "Erer attend a national conten tion? No? I thought not, for no one who bad would aak how the delegate!! tako care of themselves. There Is-too much excitement to think aliout rule of health. The Individual delegate might bo careful, but delegates collec tively never. 'Still, It might be a good thing," be went on reflectively, "to caution the boya and tell them what to look out for when they visit an altitude they are not used to. Tammany bruvvs arc lusty trenchermen and llagonmen, ev ery one, and when 050 of them are gathered In one place for several days for political purposes wine Is bound to flow, and late hours are the rule In stead of the exception." Dr. Ilenry 8. Pascal of New York city, who baa made a study of clima tology, was asked by a Now York Times reporter what the thousands of delegates to Denver must avoid and also keep In mind to maintain their normal physical conditions. "There are certain classes of men," said Dr. Pascal, "who are affected se riously by the change from tbo sea level to an altitude of 6,000 feet Den ver la exactly one mile above the sea level, fl.290 feet. Persona with hard ned arteries or any tendency to heart trouble or llrlgbt's disease are apt to have acute attacks upon suddenly moving to high altitudes. Men of these types should avoid, worry and excite ment and should'ge't plenty of sleep or It might go bard with tbeni. Tbey must avoid heavy rating as well as drinking. - . . JTlIn -1 -. .. tending the acclimatizations! -Jtie In dividual. This Is the inure or less se vere according to the altitude and somstl men lasts fur xeveral days. It Is accompanied by beudacbe, nausea, gas-tro-lntestlnal disturbances and acceler ated pulse and respiration. The rare ficatlon of the ulr lu high altitudes Is responalbto for these conditions, bring Ins about changes In the circulator)' system. In Denver one breathes In SCI per cent less oxygen than at the sea level. This decrease In oxyges causes deeper breathing In order that the blood may get wSiat It requires; deeper breathing causes greater muscular ex ertion, and this Is the reason tubercu lous patients are benefited In Denver. Bat persons with Incipient consump tion who go to the Denver convention must be careful and take It easy until tbej are acclimatized. "Those with ISrlgbt'a disease often have a hard time when they go Into mountainous districts. Acute attacka of the disease often supervene, and the attacka are made worse, of coarse, by heavy eating and drinking. "On the other baud, tbey get over the acclimatization period with com paratively trifling discomfort If they are careen auoui eating ana annsing. Tuberculosis patients must be very moderate Indeed In the matter of food and drink when they go to such an altitude in that of Denver If tbey would avoid ucute attacks. If they be come fatigued In the (lint few days ot their residence In nu allltudlnous coun try It goes hard with them. 'The gnstro-lntestthal disturbances that come nu without apparent cause nmoug tliot'-e who visit tho mountains must be attributed to tbo altitude. "Elderly or old crsous with harden ed arteries or those who have at somo period suffered slight attacks of paraly sis actually run risks when they visit a place as high as Denver. Such per sons especially must avoid fatigue for the first few days, and excessive eat ing and dilnklng lire the very worst things for them. "Acute Itrlght'8 disease Is not com mon lu Denver, but It Is particularly severe there when It does occur. Stim ulants arc more likely to produce such physical disturbances than at the sea level. "Another thing that those who pro pose to attend tliu Denver convention would do well to bear In mind Is that sleep Is disturbed more easily at n high altitude, by trivial vauses and In those who arc overworked mentally. Again, nervous persons are more apt to be disturbed III their sleep In IVnver than at the sea leel If they are phys ically ovcrnnrknl. "Mountain sickness Is undoubtedly attributable to less oxygen, ami the re sulting vascular chance are responsi ble for the ncute attacks in tuone suf fering from heart and kidney disease," physician pointed out that the gradual ascent of n mountain, on foot or horseback, Instead of a rapid jour ney by train, allowed the lungs to get used to the decrease in oxygen and thus lessened the period of acclimati zation. Til In, of eoursi, inudltleH the severity or does ana) entirely with mountain fever. - THE COST OF A BET. " Toek.qssr to Gat a Wagsr Down and ' Wins to Qtt It Cashed.

Latest Find en a Paelflo Island Bur pass Any Yst Discovered. Nothing In recent years has contrib uted so much to Increase the economic Importance to tbo ocean world as the discovery here and there of great beds of phosphate. These aeries of new finds among the islands began nliout twelve years ago, when a Ilrltlsh sur vey vessel, dredging In the Indian tcenn, brought from tho depths n piece of phosphate that was traced to the neighboring Christmas bland, on unin habited rock where some ttondrcda of men now find employment bi the phos phate works. Then came even more noteworthy surprises. Large beds of phosphste were found on Ocean Island, over which no country had taken the trou ble to raise Its flag; on the erertnan Island of Nauru, west of the (alliens, and on Maiden Island, a llrttbih rock far south of the Island of Hawaii. All these little Islands bad been un considered trifles In the ocean world, but now there Is always n ship or two off their shores and the bustle ot a mining camp on tbclr small surfaces. The latest find surpasses ever) thing yet discovered, says the New York Bun. Makatea, only four and n half miles long and one and n half miles wide. Is just now the most tallied of bit of land In the eastern Pacific. It stands In the Paumotu group, nhnut 120 miles- northwest of Tahiti. The engineers who have lieen studying Its phosphate beds estimate that It con tains at least .W.rjm.OOO tons of the richest of phosphates, the nnalyscs revealing from 05 to 8." and even 00 per cent of pure phosphate. The Island rises to 230 feet nbove the sea, has no lagoon, nnd Hie work of prospecting for more lieds Is not yet completed. Preparations are now twlng made nt an exponso of $.V).0(X to extract the deposits at the rate of 300,000 Ions a year. Phosphates have also tecn found on Nlau and some other atolls of this archipelago. Such discoveries of great natural wealth In tho Pacific nre cer tain to stimulate mure thorough ef forts to ascertain the extent of the natural wealth which (he myriad Is lands have to offer the world. PRESIDENT'S TIMELY JEST. Postmaster Qsnersl Mads Hsppy by Ourprlss Return of Lost Watch. Postmaster General Meyer dropped Into the White House for a few min utes' chat with President Itoosevelt tbe other morning. "Dy the way, can you tell me the timer" asked Mr. Itoosevelt as Mr. Meyer was about to take his leave. "My watch Is not going." "That reminds me," exclaimed the postmaster general. "I don't know whether mine la going or not, but there Is no question that It's gone. I lost It somewhere yesterday." "Well, I will show you that a watch can be gono and going at the same time," replied the president. Then bu walked to his desk, oiiened a drawer snd took out a handsome gold time piece which Mr. Meyer recognized as bis own. McDermott, a cavalry sergeant, for several years the president's orderly, riding on a recent afternoon nt a re spectful distance behind the presiden tial party, which Included tbe poetnias ter general, saw the watch lying In the dust At tbe White House some one Identified It as Mr. Meyer's, and the president himself undertook to return It to Its owner. Ponlsrds In the Hair. New Tork coiffeurs are trying to In troduce the Italian fashion of wearing a tiny poniard In the hair. 'Tin n pretty Idea, even If a tilfle murderous, for In King Victor's realm the orna ment often has a more practical and thereto tragic use than to serve as a coiffure skewer. Dut, since the New York woman has been trusted safely tiVtbtbe hatpin, doubtless the iionlard may bo confided to her care with equal safety, says the New York Press. Many of those made for women In New York are copies of tho fifth cen tury models, with Jeweled hilts nnd blades almost as slender as bodkins. Tbey flash gloriously against dark hair, but they are not so effective for blonds. However, there Is no ques tion that light haired women will wear them If the brunettes do. The blonds complexion Is not as positive as that of her olive skinned sister, but she Is not seen 'frequently In the extreme rear of tho social procession. NEW SUNSTROKE CURE. A Chicago Boclsty Reveals It For Pub llo. Benefit. No more sunstrokes and no recur rences of the same for tH-rsuhs who iave been stricken with heat. The Higher IYactlcal Ilducntlonnl so ciety of Chicago believes that It has made a discovery that will be of prac tical benefit to thousands, perhaps millions. The proposition Is simple Just block the Inside of your hat with felt and you never will suffer from sunstroke. The hoclely Is not absolutely sum of this, but from experiments Is positive that n felt lining will prevent any re currence of heat trouble. J. W. (ioHsard of the society Is very enthusiastic nlsitit It. "There nre many men who went through the Cuban war nnd suffered from beat prostrations who have been repeatedly attacked by tho mine trou ble ever Bluce," be said the other day, "and when we accidentally illscovensl that men thus afflicted could with stund the ruys of the run If they wore their winter felt hats wo decided to experiment, l'or three seasons now we hate hud iiieu weuriug straw hats with felt llnlugs, mill where they for merly were obliged to hunt Hie shade now they suffer no luconveiilenco nt all." GAS TO PROPEL WARSHIPS, Lewie Nixon 8aye It Will De Motive Power of the Future, "llattleshlps of Ihu future will use Km as motile iivcr," said U-uli Nixon, the shipbuilder mid imval ex pert, the oilier day. .Mr. Nlxiui, who recently returned to New York from KiiKlmid, was commenting on a report from London that the admiralty had given orders that n lli.rjm l,.n battle ship, tho SI. Vim cut, should be so ciUlpHsl us tu make It dependent wholly on gas for motor power. "Knglaiid Is ahead of the world in this mutter," wild .Mr. NImhi "TIiii gas inotlUzcd battleship will be much more economical and elllclent than the steam battleship. The lighter, more compact iiiiicliluevy will save Isitli space and weight, A smaller and in ferior quality of coal can nlso be umsl. The big buttleshlps will carry coal gns producer and gem-rute the gas from the coal." Mr. Xlsuti recently prepared n design for n gas moth Izcd battleship of IHl.inn horsepower. It bad triple screws, w Itti twelve cjllndcrs 110 by IW Indies on each shaft.

Sure ly the hundreds of thoujamls of ears reported Idle Hie last few- mouths vlll not gi far toward moU.ig rvcoid crop of tbe country when they nre ngaln sot to work. It Is sail that the frtlg'it cars of n.l the world could not mo'.eonr toni ti ,. from wheie It Is rnbel to while It l wanted. And so with t!.j lest of t!.e product. .Since It iilh't be ino.d on time It seems worth while to !:oUl,'.' whether some sjstem e.iiinot Is- do vised to ante part of till.) crop Moving, for a considerable volume of our prod ucts Is moved twice over mid i-rlinp more, nnd every movo ties up cars. The exMirttlons must lie moved to tidewater, nnd that Is their only move. On the other band, grnln for homo con sumption Is moved from the field to tho grain centers and then moves back again In tbe form of meal and flour. The same with potatoes, eggs and but ter. A large sharj' of these prisliuls travel hundnsls of miles mid then t 'i.o the back track, to be consumed licar where they were raised. This double handling comes out of thepnslucerniid the consumer. Tllght here may ! a ch&ncc to conserve energy nnd make our resources go further. Ics useless transportation would give necessary transportation the rood at all times. It Is said that fruit travels two to thro; thousand miles and Is sold for le nt Its destination than it would fetch riu'lil at home. If this Is true to any evtei with other pnslucts. our waste of trans portatlou value is enormous, mid n bet ter system would make our humr crops a hi.'sMng till nroimd the natioiinl board. Blow Spelling lErfurm. Willie some of the pcilodlcals adhere rigidly to the phonetic spelling, It Is noticed that score of new American books nre published overy )ear with the very old st)le of spelling for many words. In fact. It seems lis though pub lishers are going backward Instead of forward In the matter of spelling. Words like "honour," "favour" mid "humour" had taeniae rare in Ameil can print before the spelling reform, but this form of spelling not only per sists; It seems to be more In evidence every year. In these same prints the Ilrltlsh style of using "s" where we In variably use "z," nB In "civilise," nnd "x" where "ct" Is preferred In America and some other variations from rou tine spelling are found. No copyright Ilrltlsh works for which the tyim is set by printers tu Kugland are now- Issued here. The International copyright law provides that copyright can Issue In t' Is country only upon books printed ,im t)pe set within the limits of tbe I oiled States. Therefore It Is not a iiiuio custom of spelling among English typesetters which puts the Kngllsh form Into so many books sold In America. Hut books set up and printed In America may be sold In England, and tho New York Mull says that the desire of our publishers to cater for sales In Ilrltlsh territory lends them to "humour" English prejudice In the matter of spelling because the Americans who are to read those some books do not caro what the spelling Is. Strange as It may seem. In the face of all the lecturing of spelling reformers there are many Americans who rather like the old style which they first met with In works printed in England. In social Invitations the spellings "favour" and "honour" appear to bo more com mon than they were a few years ngo. Apparently the general public in Amer ica docs not caro very much either w ay, nnd so while the few nre making vio lent changes still others nre Inclined to return to tho old classic standard. As to the cause of the recent explo sion on the battleship Tennessee, - n practical engineer says: "Never mind who made the tubes. Tell us how much the water column showed und when the boiler was opened up nnd cleaned last; then we'll get n line on why she let go." John Moiley frankly admits (hat Hie situation lu Imll.i Is alarming the llrlt IbIi government. Had a similar power of perception prevailed lu London lift) years or more ugn that n 1 ill eh ipter of the sepoy mutiny nil'-tlit never hive been written lu the hl-toi) of l'.iii!.!, aggrandizement.

RATS AS A WORLD MENACE. Man Must Drive Them Out or Be Driven, 8yt French Scientist. Dr. A. Cnlmctte, n French scientist.

As n sample of what be can do the case of nn Island In the estuary of the river Hiimber Is cited. This Island once kept In condition all the yenr nround about 3,f) head of cattle.

The story of the existence of n big ship nu n high bill overlooking n string of likes lift) miles from the head of Chamlelalre rlvir has Is-en brought to li.ivvsoti by N.

The Ids structure as described by llrown m.iy h-ive bis-u n Uusslau fort. He Is-lleves It was u sort of floating fort constructed lu nunc of the lakes by early Russian sitlhrs mid later iibatidonisl. The structure is one story high, measuring twelve to four teen feet to the e.lVes. It Is H 10 yards long, llrowu says, mul is made with copper nails, Iwilts mid washers. It lias doors and windows lu the upper works and bears pis-uliar letters un known b) any traveler, besides some Kilsslan words. Indians In the vicinity go to the near by lakes to tsh. Some of them have u-isl the huge craft for drying silinoii. A majority of the tribe, however, are superstitious, mill Hie whole tribe has now moved a hundred miles to get away from it.
