Foe of Adulterated Foods.
Dr. Harvey Washington Wiley, chief
of tho bureau of chemistry, United
States department of agriculture, is
probably becoming accustomed to at
tacks on his skill and probity as a
public official. Tho most recent chargo
against him, technical violation of
law, failed to disturb his equanim
ity, and, like tho sturdy fighter that
be is, he made ready answer to hlfl
foes, nis friends say that tlie latest
assault on his integrity was the result
of a secret campaign waged by the ln-

pure drugs and adulterated foods from
the government service.
Perhaps no other public servant is
better or more favorably known than

against unwholesome food adulterants

of tbo people and a slncero belief in
bis efficiency nnd honesty of purpose.

The Motto on the Clock.
The old Temple clock In London
bears a curious inscription, the origin
of which .j ascribed to a chance re
mark. Some 200 years or so ago a master
workman wns employed to repair nnd
put in a new face upon tho clock.
When his work was nearly done he
asked tho benchers for an appropriate
motto to carve upon tho base. They
promised to think of one. Week after
week ho came for their decision, but
was put off. One day ho found them
it dinner in commons.
"What motto shall I put on the clock,
your lordship?" he asked of a learned
"Oh, go about your business!" bia
honor cried angrily. J
"And very suitable for a lazy, daw
dling gang!" tho clockmaker is said
to have muttered as he retreated. It
is certain that ho carved "Go about
your business" on the base.
The lawyers decided that no better
warning could be given them at any

The Exceptional Young Man.
Tho exceptional young man, says
Orison Swett Marden in Success Maga
zine, is the one who looks upon his
employer's interests us ho would his
own, who regards his vocation as an
opportunity to mako a man of himself,
an opportunity to show his employer
the stuff he is made of, and who Is al
ways preparing himself to fill tho posi
tion above him.
The exceptional young man is tho one
who never says. "I was not paid to do
that," "I don't get salary enough to
work after hours or to take so much
pains." Ho never leaves things half
done, but does everything to a finish.
I The exceptional young man Is the
one who studies his employer's busl
I ness, who reads its literature, who is

Labrador's Short Summer.
How brief Is tho summer on the
highlands of Labrador! says Hesketh
Prlchard in tho Wide World. Snow
does not melt till July, then with a
rush midsummer comes. Grosses and
leaves grow almost visibly, the wild
cotton soon flings out its llttlo white
pennons, millions of berries ripen on
tho ground, tho loon cries, tho ptarmi
gan calls, nnd you may oven see a
butterfly balancing tn tho warm wind.
But then also wakens tho countless
army of hunchbacks, lean nnd gray
mosquitoes, piping blithely for blood.
So summer reigns. Then suddenly
ono day at tho end of August, after the
sun has sunk behind tho barren crags
through a balmy warmth of evening,
ono may wako up to find everything
transfigured and tho first snow of an
other season already falling.

of tho hotel and, seeing a negro servant
who had all tho lmportanco of on army

him who tho "lend nigger" was around
there. The negro stretched himself to
his full height and pompously replied
that "thero ain't no niggers In St.

a ?100 bill from his pocket and finger
ing It, "I expect to bo at this hotel for
somo time and want to mako sure that
I will bo taken caro of."

FOR THE CHILDREN
How to Give a Birthday Party.
Every one haB a birthday, so here
Is a good plan to follow when you give
a party on your blrth't'fay. First write
tho invitation neatly and send them
out about two weeks before the party.
On the morning of the occasion you
should decorate the bouse with holly,
mistletoe, house plants, such as ferns,
palms, etc., if your party be In winter;
In fall, autumn leaves and chrysanthe
mums, house plants; in spring and sum
mer, wild flowers. When your friends
nrrivo welcome them and make them
acquainted with one another, then
lead them into a sitting room or parlor
nnd give each n chair. You could then
play some games.
If you havo many guests at your
party havo ice cream, cake, candy, ba
nanas and fruit in summer; in win
ter have hot chocolate, cake, candy,
bonbons and fruit. Give each person
n fancy paper napkin as n souvenir of
tho occasion, nnvo a Inrge room ready
for dancing. Before departing songs
and Instrumental selections could be
given by your guests.
A Paper Washing,
On warm summer mornings when
It is too hot to enjoy violent plays and
you are looking for something new to
do try putting out a lot of paper
clothes to dry. The clothes are cut
from stiff white, brown or striped
paper or any sort of paper which
would look like clothes that are being
washed. You may cut out any sort
of garment thnt you like, but remem
ber that It must be cut out so that
It looks as If tho arms wero hung up
to the line. The clothesline is made
of a cord and hung from ono small
upright post to another. Anything
which will stand up will do for tho
posts which are to hold the lines.
When tho clothes nre pinned up on tho
line they look very funny, nnd it Is
Interesting to see how many different
sorts of garments you can cut from
the paper in this fashion.
A Queer Kind of Bank.
Old Jacob Zeis, who lived a hermit's
life on a farm in Monroo county, 111.,
was not seen by Ills neighbors for a
long time, and an investigating farmer
found him in his bed dead and on a
table a note saying thnt he had been
taken ill and could not go for a doc
tor. In the note these was mention
of a hoard of money in the cellar of
the shanty where he lived.
The coroner and several neighbors
made a search for the money nnd
found it cunningly hidden. There was
nn old oak log In a dark corner of tho
cellar, and in the log were holes so
well plugged with original wood that
the log looked whole. Under the plugs
wero found gold coins, and $300 In nil
was taken from tho queer bank and
turned over to the county authorities.
A Playful Wolf.
Wolves carry off children out on the
frontiers of civilization sometimes, but
in New York some children turned tho
thing nround and came near carrying
off the wolf, ne was a big gray wolf,
and he had been kept in a private me
nagerie In the suburb where the chil
dren live. Mr. Wolf got out of his cage
and ran away nnd then came upon a
group of children playing In the dust.
Wolves like to play In the dust, too,
nnd so this wolf wns not at all offend
ed when the children dragged him into
their play. They thought that ho was
a street dog, and ho did not tell them
what he really was. ne let the chil
dren pull his tail and push him about
nnd feed him candy, and ho was hav
ing a royal good time when bis owner
came along nnd enptured him.
The Game of Wink.
Wink is an amusing game nnd is
generally played as follows: Chairs are
placed !n a circle; a girl occupies one,
and a boy stands behind her chair.
Suppose thero were sixteen boys pres
ent and only fifteen girls, tho sixteenth
boy would stand behind an empty
chair. All tho girls must look at the
sixteenth boy. The ono ho winks at
must Jump up (if she can get away
from tho person behind her chair) and
sit in the empty one. Then tho boy
behind her former chair must wink at
some other girl.
Old Nursery Rhymes.
"Pussy cat, pussy eat, whero have
you been?" dates from the reign of
Queen Elizabeth and was a popular
rustle song in the old Devon county,
whero Drake and Raleigh lived.
"Boys and Girls, Como Ont to Play,"
and "Lucy Locket Lost Her Pocket"
dato from tho timo of Charles II., the
"merry monarch." It Is not known
that tho rhymes refer to any particular
thing or 'event.

Liszt Fooled Them,
Wrapped in his dressing gown nnd
with feet incased In slippers, Franz
Liszt was sitting comfortably one
evening In his armchair ready for
work and Inviting inspiration. On the
floor above, in tbo apartments of a
banker, a noisy musical solrco was In
progress. Polonaises had succeeded
waltzes, nnd nocturnes had followed
polonaises, when suddenly tho door of
the salon opened, nnd Liszt entered,
still wrapped In his dressing gown
The astonishment of tho company may
bo imagined. With slow steps Liszt
walked toward tho piano, and the
young key pounder who was sitting
at It quickly left his place. Liszt sat
down at tho instrument, carelessly
swept his fingers over tho keys as if
to prelude, ngjd then suddenly he shut
down tbo cover and put tho key in
his pocket And immediately, with
tho samo tranquil nlr with which he
had entered, bo went out and returned
to his room, wbero ho could work at
Range of Rachel' Voice.
A Prussian prince, a cousin of the
German Emperor William I., has left
Bomo curious notes upon Rachel, of
whom ho was a great admirer. These
have been quoted In n lecturo upon
tho famous actress. Tho prince stud
led her olocutlon from a musical stand
point and took down notes of her
voico as sho delivered somo of her
most effectlvo speeches. Ho found,
for instance, that In a passage of
Raclno's "Bajazet," sho went down to
F in the bass. In ono of "Andro
maque" and another of "Adrienno Le
couvreur" her voico spoko n word
on tho upper E and uttered a cry on
upper F sharps. Her speaking voice
thus had a compass of two octaves.
But, as a rule, ho observed that Rhe
used only seven notes, consisting of
tho first seven ascending notes from
the bass of tho scale of F sharp minor,
but with tho D sharpened.
Fruit and Old Age.
Physiologists claim that growth from
infancy to old age is a process of grad
ual ossification and that the stiffness
of ago Is caused by tho deposits of cal
careous matter or earthy salts. There
foro a diet containing a largo propor
tion of these salts, food rich In nitro
gen, such as tho cereals, beans, peas
and meat. Increases tho natural tend
ency to ossification, says Health. For
this reason a diet made up largely of
fruit, which contains a minimum
amount of this calcareous matter, 13
scientifically best adapted to persons in
advancing years. Largo eaters add to
tho liability of osslfic deposits from
overworking tho eliminating organs by
nn excess of nutrltivo material until
their healthful activity Is destroyed,
and the whole system suffers in conse
quence. Old ago indicates less food
and a maximum amount of fruit as the
