so that if an in jury occurs to the thought brain the person can begin over again and create new knowledge centers in the other hemisphereThis happened in many cases where young people have lost certain powers or faculties by cerebral lesions and have afterward recovered these faculties by developing new centers in the other brain It rarely happens after the age of fortyfive and the reason is because most persons after passing that age soon clog their brains with calcareous matter by overeating and destroy the plasticity of their brains by filling them with food waste If all people past the age of forty five would live on twelve ounces or less of solid food per day we should soon find that one may receive new ideas as readily at seventyfive as at fifteen You cannot do it however if your brain is a hardened mass of waste matter If you overeat you will be sot in your ways and a hasbeen at fifty Keep your phonograph rec ords soft and receptive Nautilus A STAGE VILLAIN His Reputation Clung to Him Outside the Theater An actor in a small company was unable one night to get accommodation at the only hotel in an English town it is said because its proprietor a remarkably slow going person for such a place recognized him as the villain in the melodrama who had stoken a cash box set fire to a house killed a detective damaged a racehorse and betrayed the heros sister But something like this really did happen to George Scott manager of the Alhambra in London in his younger days Mr Scott was a stage villain of the deepest dye and one his favorite parts was that of ofI wicked Levison in East Lynne After playing the character a few nights In Blackpool he had occasion for wishing to change his lodgings and knocking at the door of a house in the next street was greeted by the good lady who opened it with a shriek and the subsequent exclamation What Its Levison the dirty villain Ye cant ave rooms in my touse Get out or Ill call the perlice London M A P Steel Pen

Maintained Are De sirable Says P J Jewett Where Cost of Rock Roads Is Too Heavy tj P J Jewett a farmer near Mo has written to the BUtJerII Star as follows on the subject roads I have been reading with Interest the various letters and editorials In the Star on the subject of good roads as I read with Interest anything on this subject anywhere Although a farmer I am also a good roads man I am pleased to see the interest shown and while I dont want to knock I am afraid the cause is be ing injured by its friends who write in that they seem to think no road a good one unless it is made of rock at a cost of 3000 to 5000 a mile- I will state as briefly as I can how the subject looks to me and I believe I will voice the opinion of 75 per cent of the farmers in the corn belt It is evident that iroa s are made In the country the 1eople who live there farmers must either do the work or pay for it Individually I have little interest In roads other than those in my Immediate neighborhood- and those leading to my market In twentyfive years I have not driven so far that I could not get back the same day If I have to make a trIp of any considerable distance I take a train 1 am not yet able td keep a motor car for pleasure and am not willing to make roads for those who are I live in an average township in western Missouri that has sixty miles of road Our assessed valuation Is 350000 To make rock roads at the lowest estimated price per mile 3000 would cost 180000 or more than half the value of all the property in the township To make one mile at 3000 would require a tax of 83 cents on 100 A rock road is never the best road If it was we would not avoid it as we always do when the ground is dry and speed rings would be made that way It Is not permanent and the cost of maintaining six miles would be more than we now put on sixty I know that the idea is to improve the most important roads first and the others later but the one who lives a mile from the Improved road can take no more than he can pull over the un improved one I note the argument that I can take larger loads make better time get better prices all of which I admit but my present income would have to be increased very much to enable me to stand this cost I also note that good roads will enable me to sell my farm for a greater price Suppose I dont want to sell We are not all specula tors Would an acre produce more if its price was 100 than it would If it was 501 Without doubt J would pay twice as much tax If I want to sell its different though much like life In surancea game you have to die to beat Do you see why farmers promptly vpte down anything along this line In Missouri the farmers killed the ten cent state road tax that was really in their favor because they thought it was to build a state road in which they had no interest Dont think we are mossbacks We want good roads and appreciate their value but If we must make them we Insist that they be of a kind that we can afford and that will suit our needsWhy not try good dirt roads With the exception of a few miles say 10 per cent near the towns where travel converges a good dirt road properly maintained would be the very best possible eight months in the year a good one ten and passably the other two I believe 100 a mlle would make good dirt roads in our township and with 200 more we could grade down the hills grade up the low places tile out the wet ones properly grade and ditch them and put in concrete culverts where bridges were not required in fact make a modern rock road without the rock As to maintenance a mile of thirty foot road can be dragged once for 50 cents An average of ten times will be ample But lets say fifteen and we hate a cost of 750 A grader should bo run over tho road once a year to open ditches and maintain proper shape Two horse graders are now made that will ido this work at 250 a mite plowing furrow in ditches 50 cents To sum up then we haw this result COST PER MIIB Co struoUon 3t09

Portion of Northern New Spain Got Its Name The country now called Mexico was not so called till 1810 when the revolt against Spain began Up to Independence the country was called New Spain and was divided into the same number of provinces as Spain each with n name of a province in Spain with the prefix of new but New Mexico was not Included in this division It got its name in this way In 1561 Francisco Ibarra was in charge of an expedition of exploration into what is now northern Durango and southern Chihuahua and discov ered an Indian village near where Santa Barbara now stands In which the houses were whitewashed and the peo pie made and wore cotton cloth rals Ing the cotton in the neighborhood He wrote an account of his to his brother in the CIty of Mexico telling him he had discovered una nueva Mexico a new Mexico Mexico meaning that he had another town like the City of Mexico and thereafter all this portion of northern New Spain was known as Mexicothat is New MexIcowhich name it has retained though now much reduced in extent Las Vegas Optic Muskrats For Meat Of all animals that supply meat to man the muskrat has been the most abused and the least understood says the Baltimore Star Its name had bred in the public mind a prejudice that has been almost unconquerable but truth will prevail in spite of fate Asa fact the muskrat is one of the est and most delightful of animals Is a crank In cleanliness It dines with the care of an epicure It eats only too whitest and tenderest morsels And its flesh has qualities that can be compared only to terrapin Indeed there are good people along the Chesapeake where all the best things live and grow who find In the well served muskrat satisfaction that is equal to the diamondback Only the ignorant and the prejudiced think differently and they may be educated Ripening Bananas- It Is a familiar fact that bananas are imported green but it came as new thing to a visitor to the banana district in Colombia to find that ba nanas are not permitted to ripen on the plant even down there They are cut and set to hang somewhere they wither ripe as the phrase Bananas do not have to be yellow to be ripe That is only the color of the skin When it has dried up To the person who is accustomed to bananas only when they are yellow It seems odd to peel them when they are green and find that they are perfectly ripe within and fit to eatNew York Sun The Prisoners Retort It is a prison chaplains duty to give departing prisoner good advice and to exhort him to be a decent and honorable man in the

the regimental motto Each man signing his bond of service sells his soul for five years at the wage of 1 sou about 1 cent per day The officers are French but the men hail from everywhere and nowhere Under various names the French legion has existed since the eighteenth century and was finally constituted as at present in 1830 It consists of twelve battalions divided into two regiments mustering a total strength of 12000 men Eight thousand are kept in the far east the remainder serving in northern Africa In the early days the regiments were divided into national sections men from the same rff country being kept together This resulted however In continual racial disputes and each company con sequently was given a cosmopolitan composition Since Its formation the officials have guarded closely against desertions and as the legion only serves In French colonial territory where the centers are remote and transportation Is difficult a successful desertion is a rare feat Chicago News A

sailing on the ice has within a few years attracted consid erable attention on our northern rivers and lakes and seems likoly to In crease It is an amusement well adapted to big boys being exciting requiring skill and certainly not more dangerous than skating It is even more fascinating than yachting with out the danger which always attends the latter pursuit A small Iceboat that a boy can build will sail ten to 20 miles an hour with a good wind Some large ones strange as it may seem can sail with a wind on the beam actually faster than the wind which Is blowing This fact is attested by the highest scientific authorities Having seen some unsuccessful at tempts at iceboats by boys in various The Boat places I propose to tell you how to build one at a small expense that will sail well and

out The ball struck Dick in the leg He fell and lay motionless Pulling his revolver Jack stooped and ran under the overhanging ledge peering about to see where the shot had come from He raised his gun to fire when a volley of rifle shots rang through the canyon the bullets kick Ing up little spurts of dust about him and chipping edges off the rocks Jack dropped on his knees and crept to his rifle clipping his revolver back into his holster Crouching behind a rock with his rifle to his shoulder he waited for the Stackers to show themselves Experience on the plains taught them that the fight would be a slow one unless the Apaches sought only to divert attention for the time being to cover their flight southward After the one shot which struck Dick and the volley directed at Jack not a rifle had been fired Peering over the bowlder Jack could see nothing Dick had fallen near the spring He struggled back to cOnsciousness to find his left leg numb and useless When the ball struck him he felt only a sharp pinch His fainting was caused by a shock to his weakened body but not from fear or pain With the re turn to his senses came a horrible burning thirst and a horrible sinking Crouching behind a rock rifle to shoulder sensation in the pit of his stomach He lay breathing heavily until he got a grip on himself Then he tore the bandanna handkerchief from his neck and bound up the wound winding the bandage as tightly as his strength per- mItted to check the blood flow What Is it asked Jack over his shoulderIndians The Apaches are out Im hit gasped Dick He crawled pain fully and slowly to Jacks side drag ging his leg after him He pulled with him his rifle which he picked up as he passed from the spot where it had fallen in his first wild rush for water The soldiers told me at Fort Grant about the Apaches being out Jack whispered hoarsely I thought theyd cross the border into Mexico Seeing a spasm of pain over Dicks face he asked Are you hurt bad I dont know My left leg is numb Both men spoke scarcely above a whisper fearing to betray their posi tions by the sound of their voices Dick lay on his back gathering strength thernshJack caught the sound of a falling stone Peering cautiously over the rock he saw an Indian creeping up a draw toward them Throwing his rifle to his shoulder he took quick aim and fired The Apache jumped to his feet ran a few steps forward and fell sprawling A convulsive shudder shook him and he lay still I got him cried Jack exultantly as he saw the result of the shot But the exposure of his head and shoulders above their barricade had drawn forth more shots from other members of the band The bullets struck near the two men showing that the Apaches Had the rangetDicks wound was bleeding freely but the shock of the blow had passed away and his strength returned Drawing his revolver he crept closer to Jack crying I can shoot some I reckon you havent more than a flesh wound encouraged Jack Can you crawl to the horse t

Probably Brought to This Country by the Spaniards The first horses of the western plains were probably brought there by the Spaniards In 1545 almost fifty years before Jamestown was settled Coro nado the Spanish captain was roam Ing about the plains of New Mexico and he tells of the dogs used by the Indians to haul their plunder on lodge poles indicating that they had no horses at that date In 1716 the Spanish again worked their way eastward across the plains and their letters tell of the astonish ment of the Indians at seeing the horses they had with them The ex pedition was constantly losing horses and there Is little doubt that the first droves of western horses originated from these strays In the early days upon the plains they were a great pest to travelers Woe be unto the luckless camper who allowed a band of wild horses to get close enough to his gentle horses turned out for the night to sweep them off It was almost useless to follow for the call of the wild comes to the gentlest of horses when he is thrown with a band of his kind that have been born and raised free of all restraint It is a well known fact that the hardest one to cut out the lead er of them all in a mad race across the prairie is the old gentle well broken saddle or work horse once he gets a taste of such freedom Will 0 Barnes In McClures PAPUAN COIFFURES Heads In New Guinea That Look Like Rising Suns One of the most interesting things that came under my observation vas- the odd manner in which the people wore their hair said a physician de scribing a visit to New Guinea and the leading traits and characteristics of the inhabitants known as Papuans One type wore the hair standing up from the head at a length of seven inches or more It was trimmed with wonderful regularity and with mathematical accuracy The hair was greased with cocoanut oil and painted red At a distance it looked like a rising sun Another type of the inhabitants who wear their hair in an unusual fashion was described Starting from the forehead he said the hair is brushed back over the scalp and hangs down to the waist It is a perfect mass an intricate jungle I am sure It was never combed and it was impossible tort the fingers through it At a distance it looks like a cap with the visor turned downward One other odd type of hairdressing coiffure If you willwas observed on this visit The hair was gathered at the front and back then brought to gether above the head where it was inclosed in n basketlike cylinder The end spread out about two inches Ap parently these caps are never removed from the headBaltimore Sun Playing Greenhorn Why did you tell the manager of that employment agency that you had Just come over said one servant girl to another You didnt you know You have had three

Cured Did you ever take nine swallows of water to cure the hiccoughs Do you remember the time some one scared the hiccoughs away by telling you of a whipping due for some meanness Well science has been studying hic coughs and caught the hiccoughs by the nape of the neck The nine swallows of water had a little science In it and so did the scare cure The scientific hiccough cure consists in pressing down to numbness the nerve that connects the stomach heart lungs and brain the pneumogastric nerve The pressure partially and locally paralyzes this nerve and of necessity the hiccoughing must cease Have the hiccoughing patient sit down and be at ease with the muscles of the neck relaxed as much as possi ble Grasp both sides of the neck somewhat toward the back part and press down steadily and as hard as the subject may permit for about one min ute having the patient work the head from side to side Within about one minute the nerve will be numbed and rested and the spasmodic motion will cease It may require longer pressure in some cases but the result is sure if patience is maintained Ohio State Journal A Thirteenth Century Drink Thirteenth century tastes in food had few

hardest proposi tion a hotel clerk runs up against said a member of that fraternity uTo ring the telephone is useless because the man cant hear Knocking for the same reason is futile Now and then a guest who has lost his hearing sug gests that he leave his door open so we can walk right in and shake him but even if he does appear to be dead game there are so many chances of somebody less

PARIS 1 French Capital Bids Fair to Suffer Worse Than the English A certain undesired supremacy has always been granted to London in the matter of fogs and the London pea souper has always been considered unequaled in its way But things have changed a good deal of late In the first place those of late years notably that at the beginning of this month have been overhead fogs which made the noonday like night although in the streets it was perfectly clear and there was little or no dislocation of traffic This Is said to be owing to the fact that a few hundred feet up the air is cold enough to condense the moisture whereas in the streets the air Is warm enough to keep the moisture uncondensed This variety of fog is certainly the least objectionable theinr business without groping along the walls in utter darkness as used to be the case Another change that must be noted is the prevalence of fogs in Paris notably in the present month 1when in the first week the fog was much worse on the banks of the Seine than on the banks of the Thames Some years ago when Paris burned wood the city had no tea fogs but now that It has taken to burning coal It has Imported the Lon annot

By RABBI JOSEPH SILVERMAN CityII do not believe there are more suicides tod than there ever were Newspapers are more alert now There were just as many suicides in ancient times Once upon a time when a man committed suicide people said he was crazy and let it drop Now suicide news is especially featured but I think the actual number is no greater than in ancient Rome Nature has many ways of getting rid of her unfit At one time suicide was almost fash ionable in Rome Seneca advocated it and among his disciples there was what he called a passion for suicide A man was justified in destroying his own life the stoics believed A Roman senator declared that the one point in which mans lot is su to that of a god is that he has the power flying to the tomb He describes it as the greatest proof of the bounty of Providence that in the world there are so many herbs from which the weary man can secure the means for a rapid and painless death Lecky says The dramatic death of Cato the Stoic was the favorite subject of Roman eloquence Indifference to death is a favorite phrase of the stoics It is said that Seneca clung to the idea of with passionate joy as the one refuge for the oppressed andwrong saying Against all the injuries of life I have the refuge of death is only weak minds however in my opinion that for a moment seriously entertain the idea of suicide What the people need is a
