They Arc Liable to Become Iluitlcn-
el in Old arc.
"A man is as old as his arteries."
was said some time ago by a French
physician, and the saying, like so
many others of the nhraso lovinc
French, has a good deal of truth in
it and a little error.
There is manv a man. old in vears
but young in spirit, whose arteries
are like pipestems. So brittle do
they Beem, Indeed, that the physi
cian hardly dares feel the pulse lest
he crush the friable artery under
his finger, yet these, old people are
active in mind and body and seem
often much younger than men of
but two-thirds their years.
Aeain. one meets old and feeble
folk, whose lives seem to flicker
dangerously, like a candle flame In
a draft, whnn arteries are as soft
and comprc- :".)'.e as those of a
In genem . however, the savinc
is true, and specially in premature
old age It will usually be found that
the arteries are hard, with fibrous
thickening, if not already more or
less calciiled. Hardening of the
blood vessels arteriosclerosis is
the accepted medical term consists
in a fibrous overgrowth of the walls
ot the arteries, usually following
more or less degeneration of the
normal tissues of the vessels. As
to just how this comes about physi
cians are not entirely agreed. It is
probable that the chance occurs
first In the very minute vessels, those
tiiat run through the walls of the
larger vessels supplying them with
blood for their nourishment. When
these are hardened by the deposit
or nbrous tissue they carry less
blood and carry It more slowly,
and so the nutrition of the walls
of the larger vessels is reduced.
this leads to softening, and then
nature tries to renair the uamaee
by the only new tissue at her hand
namely, tibrous tissue.
Later these fibrous and thicken
ed walls of the larger arteries may
be hardened still more by a deposit
of lime salts from the blood.
The arteriosclerosis so common
in old age Is the result of "wear
and tear." An tube dilated by
hydraulic pressure and then con
tracting 10,000 times a day will
have done much work by the end
of seventy years. In younger life
arteriosclerosis is most commonly
caused by intemperance not in
drinking only, but In eating, espe
cially meat eating, without enouch
exercise to consume the excess nf
nutrient material. Overwork,
worry, and chronic poisoning, such
as lead poisoning, are also factors.
The best thine for arteriosclerosis
Is not to get it, and the best way
not to get it is to bo moderate in
everything. Peonlo Krowinc niri
should be examined medically every
six montns, and then Incipient ar
teriosclerosis may be detected and
pernaps arrested by proper diet
drugs and regimen. Youth's Com.

London Ladies Fenos.
London ladies stimulated by the
Olympic games of last eummor have
taken to the foils, and fencing Is now
the fashion. Indeed, an official of the
Sword club holds that fencing is like
ly to have on even wider vogue among
women than among men.
Popular Young Minister Uses It ta
Point a Moral.
Rev. Philip C. Fletcher, tho most
eloquent and popular of St. Louis'
younger clergymen, was discussing
tho other day the sermon wheroln be
said ho saw no harm in cosmetics.
"What I meant in that sermon,"
said Mr. Fletcher, smiling, "was that
a woman owed it to herself to make
the most of her looks. According to
some people, I advised every woman
to lay on powder and paint with a
trowel. I would never think of giving
such advice, of course. Such advice,
coming from tho pulpit, would hava
a strango sound as strange a sound
bb tho talk of tho minister's parrot.
"A certain minister called on an old
lady, and found a new parrot In her
parlor. This parrot kept saying every
llttlo while:
'"I wish the old girl would die!'
"Tho minister turned his head to
conceal a smile.
"'But I think I can Bet this mat

Bald. 'I, too, have a parrot, as you
know. It Is a very honest bird. Ita
talk is very edifying. I'll send It hero
and It will soon guide your own parrot
into decent speech.'

birds side by side. Then with a pleas
ed smile she prepared to listen to
their conversation.
"'I wish the old girl would die,'
said tho parrot host.
'And the guest rolled his eyes and
declaimed solemnly:

Willing, If He Would Walt.
In his address before the Philadel
phia Conference of tho Methodist
Church the other day Bishop Hamil
ton related tho following anecdote to
Illustrate a point:
"I think you are all good-natured
enough to agree with the young lady
who, with her llanco, was awaiting a
street car. After several cars had
passed and they could not get aboard
the young man became Impatient.
When the next car stopped at tho
corner he leaped upon the platform
and said, In pleading terms: "Come
on, Mary, wo can manage to squeeze
in here, can't we?' Tho young wom
an colored slightly, but bravely re
plied, 'I suppose we can, dear, but
don't you think we had better wait
until we get homo?'"
Too Soon to Begin Counting.
A man came shooting from a bright
ly lighted window one night, and land
ed with a crash on the sidewalk.
"It's all right," he said to the
crowd that had gathered, as he stiffly
arose. "That's my club, the Ninth
Precinct, I'm a Smyth man, and
there are ten Jones men In there. I'm
going back to them. You stay here
and count them as they come out of
the window."
He limped back Into the club. There
was a great uproar. Then a figure
crashed through the window, and
struck the sidewalk with a terrible
"No," said the figure, rising, '.'don't
start counting yet. It's me again."
All's Well.
All's well with the world, my friend,

bully old yellow sun will shine till
the cows come home! All's well with
the world, my friend! Your star In

Hnrmlese Coffe! Wanted.
A number of ox: erimeuts have been
carried out with tl'e object of prepar
ing a caffeln frcu i.roduct from tho
coffee seeds. A satisfactory result
was obtained by certain methods
which aim nt subjecting tho entire
raw seeds to n p'oceduro by means
of which tho caffoln salts are decom
posed and tho seeds are rendered
amenable to subsequent extraction
with a volatllo solvent of caffeln. This
procedure In at present employed In
Bremen and In Mannheim, Germany.
Nature has produced a plant free
from caffeln, native of Madagascar
and Reunion, but unfit for use on ac
count of its bitter principle. Graft
ing experiments have not yet proved
successful. The requirements In case
of tho artificial non-poisonous pro
duct are its almost entire harmless
ness, together with an unchanged ap
pearance, taste and aroma.
The Penang Patrol Wagon.
Writing of the local patrol wagon
the Penang correspondent of the
Straits Times, Singapore, says: "It
forcibly calls to mind at first sight a
four wheeled baker's cart, bar the
fact that It is drawn by about the
slowest pair of bullocks in the settle
ment. Thore Is nothing grim at all
about It, for it Is commanded by a
sleepy Malay constable perched on
the box; Its roof and sides are form
ed of white canvas, and It has no door
to close at the back, but merely an
opening In which another Malay con
stable half slumbers. Two or three
other constables rldo inside sitting
on the benches with the prisoners,
who seem to bo struck with novelty
of the ride to make any attempt at
escape. I should say that an escape
from this prison van would bo aa
easy as falling off a log."
To Be Looked At.
"Of course, madam, I would not bo
expected to light the fire?"
"Certainly not."
"Nor sweep the floors?"
"Certainly not"
"Nor attend. to the door?"
"Of course not"
"Nor to wait on table?"
"No; I want none of theso things,"
said the lady with her sweetest smile.

for Is to look r.t her and for this you
are too plain." Royal Magazine.
