Uses For Old Newspapers.
From tho Christian Science Moni
tor the following is taken: Wet In
water old newspapers clean out the
Crushed newspapers aro excellent
to clean lamp chimneys.
To wrap furs and woolens in for
tho summor they aro good.
They can oven bo used as an Iron
older for an emergency.
Newspapers dipped in lamp oil
aro useful for cleaning windows.
Irons not much soiled can be
rubbed on old newspapers and thus
made fit for use.
Thoro is nothing bettor for using
under carpets than old newspapers,
aa moths do not llko printers' ink.
Dipped In lamp oil they are splen
did to rub tho outside of tho dish
pan. They keep It bright and shin
ing. Thoy clean tho Blnk of its greaso
and sediment; nothing is better, for
the greasy paper can bo at onco
burned after use.
Many times folded they will servo
as a mat to stand hot and blackened
pots and kettles on and thus save
soiling tho kitchen table.
Tho kitchen stovo is kept bright
and clean by rubbing it briskly af
ter tho cooking of each meal with
old papers and this saves many

"This makes a delightful little
ehange from tho conventional ways
of distributing gifts," says Katherlno
Oilman Grou in tho Womau's Homo

G. W. Peil Sells Best Prescrip
tion on the Money Back
Almost everybody knows that sick
headache, nervousness and dizziness,
are caused by a disordered stomach.
Upset stomach and indigestion hap
pen just becauso the food you eat
does not digest but lies in' the
stomach and forments or turns sour.
You can stop fermentation and
stomach distress in five minutes by
using MI-O-NA stomach tablets, a
prescription that has dono more to
euro indigestion and put tho stom
ach In lino condition than all tho
specialists on earth.
A largo 50 cent box of MI-O-NA
stomach tablets is all you need to
get quick and lasting rellof. G. W.
Pell guarantees them.
.Mrs. Altlo Etson, of 93 Dun Road,
Battle Creek, Mich., used MI-O-NA
and within two months was in
as good health as ever, and has a
strong stomach and eats anything
she likes. She attributes her good
health to MI-O-NA.
If you havo heartburn, belching of
gas, heaviness or any stomach
trouble no matter how chronic, try
MI-O-NA stomach tablets on money
back plan. Sold by G. W. Pell and
leading druggists everywhere.

USE CONVICT LABOIU
.Motor Federation Would Have State
Follow South'. Example On
Convict labor on roads has recent
ly been suggested by tho Pennsylva
nia Motor Fcdoration In ordor that
tho Koystono State may enjoy an
soon ns possible tho benefits of nn
extensive system of improved high
ways, according to tho Harrlsburg
Patriot. Thero has developed In tho
Stato a rcmarkablo demand for road
bottcrment, so grcnt In fact that un
less such labor is utilized many
years must elapse before tho desir
ed results can bo brought about.
Tho fact that tho State Highway
Department of Pennsylvania has on
fllo applications aggregating 3, COO
miles of now road, nolio of which
can bo granted until an appropria
tion Is mado by tho next Legislature,
Indicates that the people in that state
aro waking up to tho necessity for
good roads and that tho demand is
Tho Pennsylvania Motor Federa
tion, which is composed of all tho
automobllo clubs In tho state, is now
preparing to submit to tho Legisla
ture and urgo tho passage of a bill
which will call for the expenditure of
50,000,000, which sum, it Is osti
mated, will glvo tho stato tho best
systom of highways possessed by any
commonwealth in tho country.
It is proposed that tho stato shall
boar soventy-flvo per cent, of tho cost
of this road building, tho balanco
bolng contributed by tho rospoctlvo
townships, and it is contended that
tho immediate benoflts which will nc
cruo to residents of clttos and rural
sections alike will more than mako
up for any Increase In taxation which
may appear necessary In ordor to
provide tho millions needed In road
In tho opinion of many It would
bo wise and a double economy to uso
somo of tho many convicts now being
fod and clothed at tho cxpenso of tho
stato In tho work of road building, as
Is being done In a majority of the
Southern States whoro good and per
manent roads are now rapidly sup
planting old mud thoroughfares.
Green county, Mo., has a county
convict road crew under the super
vision of tho county highway engi
neer. The plant consists of a con
victs cage, crushor and screen, trac
tlon engine, cooking tent and guard
outfit. Tho county sheriff feeds the
prisoners In the field the same as in
tho jail, a prisoner doing tho cook
ing. The force, consisting of two
guards, an englneor, twelve or fifteen
prisoners and a team, has an average
daily output of eighty cubic yards.
Tho cost to the county is about twen
ty cents per cubic yard of rock.
The convict crew is doing only the
crushing, the road district, wherein
tho road lines, attends to everything
else. This does not take into ac
count the fact that it would Cbst as
much to feed tho prisoners as If they
were in Jail doing nothing. From
tho known enhanced valuation of
property along these roads built by
the crew and the Increased taxes de
rived therefrom tho county Is .being
paid a dividend upon tho investment.
Convicts almost invariably -make
good and willing workmen. -Thoy
appreciate not only tho fact that they
are able to be out In the open air and
enjoying a certain amount of free
dom, but they aro also inclined to
pride themselves on the fact that
they aro trusted and permitted to do
something of benefit. Of course,
there are exceptions and sometimes
trouble with the sullen and unrecon
ciled ones, but taken generally the
system works out well for all con
Tho Work of a Wommi.
Whatever may bo the opinion of
tho world at large upon the doctrines
Inculcated by the church of which
she was tho founder, It is a question
whether Mary Baker G. Eddy in
building up this organization of half
a million fervently loyal adherents
has not outdone tho achievement of
any other woman who ever lived.
Thero has been many a woman who
"led her soul, her cause, her clau,"
to tho accomplishment of a great
humanitarian undertaking who
notably contributed to the promotion
of temperance, to the amelioration of
the lot of slaves or prisoners, to the
effectiveness of missionary labor In
the domestic or tho foreign Held, or
to tho allovlatory ministration to In
valids In hospitals In war time or In
times of peace. The world has quite
recently been called upon to mourn
tho passing of two such women
Florence Nightingale and Julia Ward
Howo, both of whom were of ap
proximately the age of Mrs. Eddy
when thoy obeyed tho summons of
the Invisible. But Mrs. Eddy was
more than philanthropist and hu
manitarian. Sho was a born loader
of men and women, who to personal
magnetism united extraordinary exe
cutive ability. Sho had shrewd busi
ness acumen, and Joan of Arc was
not hor equal as a commanding gon
cral. Her followers havo never cared to
crlticiso her writings In respect to
syntax nnd style; to them "Science
and Health" has been not so much
a book as tho shrine of a great truth.
But moroly tho enunciation of ab
stract principles could not havo built
up such a world-wido and all-prova-slvo
religion, or exerted such a con
trolling Inlluonco upon so many hun
dreds of thousands of persons,
To create such a church and to In
spire a following so numerous and so
devoted Mrs. Eddy must havo beon a
woman of altogether extraordinary
personal endowments. Other leadors
llko Dowle have depended upon
oratory and histrionic offects to main
tain their ascendency. Mrs. Eddy In
latter years was secluded and inac
cessible. Yet Zionism nnd similar
mushroom manifestations of tho re
ligious Instinct havo scarcely outlived
tho porsonal leadership of their
founders, while Christian Sclenco
