It is bad form to stand talking when taking leave of your hostess. The adieux should be made simply and quickly. If carriages are sent to the station to convey guests from out of town to a wedding the bride's parents provide them. It is not necessary for a gentleman to offer his arm when acting as an escort unless the lady is elderly or an invalid. The visiting card may not be used with words of thanks for a gift written upon it. A written note of thanks is obligatory. A man leaves his hat, overcoat, gloves and cane in the hall when making a call. None of these are brought into the parlor Wedding gifts are not presented personally, but sent with one's card, usually from the place where they are bought. At an afternoon reception the hats are retained; with the exception of the ladies who have been asked to assist the hostess. Bread and butter plates are now used in place of the little butter patties; they are about the size of a saucer and placed at the left of the plate. The visiting card should have the prefix "Miss" or "Mrs." upon it, never the name alone without the prefix except in the case of very young girls or boys under 18. On formal occasions no napkin r" rings appear on the table and the napkins is used but once. At the home dinner the napkin, if not too soiled, should be placed in the ring to be used again at breakfast or luncheon. On a man's visiting card only titles that indicate a rank or profession for life should be used. All titles of a transient order should be omitted. Titles that may be used on the cards include army and navy titles, also the titles given in theology and medicine.

When you have trouble with your stomach or chronic constipation, don't imagine that your case is beyond help just because your doctor fails to give you relief. Mrs. G. Stengle, Plainfield N. J., writes, "For over a month past I have been troubled with my stomach. Everything I ate upset it terribly. One of Chamberlain's advertising booklets came to me.

Centuries Ago It Was a Part of the Art of the Apothecary. Curiously enough, the making of confectionery originated in a way with the apothecaries about 500 years ago. It was then that sugar was first imported into England, and it was then that "confections" first became known. For a time they appeared only in medical form, the apothecaries using the newly imported sugar as a means of mitigating the bitterness of their doses. In other words, they mixed their drugs with it, and therein lay the origin of many of the sirups and medicated candles, the ancestors of our cough drops and lozenges. The cost of sugar was far too high, and most people were far too poor to permit of its being eaten for its own sake alone and as a mere luxury. It was only a couple of centures ago that there began to appear a new phase of the apothecary's art Confections began to be made more or less apart from any medicinal purpose and because people liked them, and eventual! the confectioner's business became quite separate and distinct from that of the apothecary. Although the confectioner's trade may be said to be about 200 years old, it was only within recent times that it became a real and extensive industry. At first sugar was heavily taxed, and the confectioner's trade was pursued upon very elementary principles. For a long time everything was done by hand. Implements were of the very simplest candy kettles heated on small brick furnaces, pestles and mortars, rolling pins and scissors, etc. The output was very small, and, comparatively speaking, sweetmeats of all sorts were expensive and frequently unat- FACING TORTURES, A DARING SCOUT. , TIPPING AN ARTIST.

All this has been changed, and nowadays the most improved machinery and implements combine to produce the most delicate and attractive sweets.

While many of the best and most expensive candies are still very largely made by hand processes, by far the greater mass of sweetmeats is produced by machinery. Harper's Weekly. Hopkins, the Witch Finder. Though some people still believe in witches, there is no longer any use for the witch finder. Englishmen of earlier generations gave this person abundant employment sometimes fetching the real expert enormous distances to cleanse an afflicted town. In 1649, f6r instance, the magistrates of Newcastle sent into Scotland for one who could find witches, agreeing to pay 20 shillings ($4.S0) a head for all that he convicted. His particular method consisted in pricking the suspect with pins, and fifteen old women were duly executed as the result of his visit The most notorious of witch finders, one Hopkins, wag finally executed as a wizard after trial by one of the more painful of his own many cleverly devised tests. ..

Post-office as sec-c- fl iVED. 0 JULY 23, 1913. The split log'drags have finally reached Adair. Just what provision has lor will be made for their useon on the public roads is unknown to us. They have been highly beneficial in many parts of thelcountry, and if properly used here should result in jnuch'good to some parts of the roads. Ii our county road engineer has within his power the means to have them properly used, or if he can induce the people to use them without a money compensation the starting point for better conditions will be established, but, as we understand, the Fiscal court only levied to meet some emergencies and made no provision for making good roads. If we are correct in this we do not look for any general use of the drags regardless of who may champion the cause. So far as we are able to determine, our present road law is a stupendous failure. It is wrong in principle, worthless in operation and discouraging to those who would be active in making good roads. It is a misfit for a large number of counties and must be remade before any good and permanent improvements are made in this and many other communities. It will require money to make roads, and the sooner this is realized by the majority of tax payers, the better it will be. Misfit road laws will not bring what we want. Criticism of Secretary of State, Hon. W. J. Bryan, for earning money by lecturing at Chautau-qua- s may or may not be well founded, but it appears that the officials of our government should keep close to their post of duty and not engage in entangling business alliances that would in voke the censure of any part of the people. Mr. Bryan receives $12,000 per year, and while capable of earning a much larger sum, as a business man, yet it seems that he ought to accept his salary as full compensation for his services, or yield to some other competent man who would do so. It is not our purpose to criticize, neither to heroize, but to be plain, we admire the talents and energy of Mr. Bryan but do not believe him justified in his present attitude to provide for "the rainy day." His entire time, apart from needed rest, should be devoted to the welfare of the government through his official station. He has preached economy, he has advocated close application to duty, and now he has the opportunity to live it. The great bulk of the people will hardly endorse the precedent set by Mr. Bryan, and certainly it means no good to the administration if it even fails of harm. The following is from the Herald.

Near the monastery of San Vito, In Naples, stood a marble column that had been erected by an eccentric Frenchman about the beginning of the last century. On it were written in French the following enigmatic words: "On May 1 every year I have a golden head." The inscription sorely puzzled the inhabitants of Naples. On May 1 the year after the erection of the column a great crowd came to it in the hope of finding the top covered with gold pieces. Needless to say, they went home with their pockets as empty as they were when they came. For several years people came to see the promised wonder and went away disappointed. At last the authorities had the column taken down in the belief that treasure would be found beneath it. Nothing but earth was found, and so the column was set up again. Obviously the words had a mystic meaning, but no one was clever enough to guess it, and for years the riddle remained unsolved. Finally in 1S41 a ragged beggar named Annibale Tosci noticed the inscription. He stood looking at it for a long time while he pondered its meaning. Then suddenly the solution of the puzzle flashed into his mind. He waited patiently until May 1 before ho tested the accuracy of his interpretation of the mystic words. On the day mentioned in the inscription Tosci, bearing a pick and shovel, set out at daybreak for the column. He arrived before any chance visitors, and as soon as the monastery's bells tolled 6 he started digging in the ground covered by the shadow of the top of the column. He had not dug long before he came on a satchel that contained 80,000 francs, The inSCrip- head of the tion was a true one-t- he of the nails.
