Washington.—Fully four and a half
out of every five pounds of coffee
drunk In the United States comes from
Brazil, and the proportion Is growing
steadily higher, principally because
the Brazilian bean Is of a superior
quality and flavor. The generality
of coffee drinkers have a hazy idea
that "Mocha" and "Java" enter largely
Into the morning beverage, but it Is a
fact that all the Mocha and Java that
reach this country In a year would not
supply St. Ix)uis for six months.
It is generally known and under-
stood that the greater proportion of
line Brazilian coffee comes from the
state of Sao Paulo in that country, and
the statement that Sao Paulo, the
richest state in the Brazilian Union,
'a "one vast coffee estate" has been
made so frequently that the general
'mpression has gone abroad that little
else but coffee is produced in the
*tate. It is true that Sao Paulo alone,
.ast year, produced 1,716,000,000
pounds of coffee that had a value of
$140,000,000, and that this vast ag-
gregate found its way outward
'^ough the greatest coffee port In the
world, Santos; but it is also true that
Sao Paulo has a host of other indus-
tries that are developing at a rate
.hat is astonishing. It is in Sao Paulo
that the great wheat growing conces-
sions have been granted; it is from
Sao Paulo that the enormous ship-
ments to Europe of live cattle will be
made; it is Sao Paulo that now main-
ains three hundred factories engaged
HONOR RESTED WITH AUTHOR
How the Late Popular Writer, O.
Henry, Outwitted Unscrupulous
A friend of the late O. Henry writes
of him: "He was reckless in spending
money, and frequently gave elevator
boys and bellboys $5 and $10 notes.
But he wasn't 'easy,' despite his finan-
cial regardlessness. His friends nar-
rated an incident showing the man's
shrewdness. A magazine noted for
'slow pay,' they say, contracted with
him for a three-part story, for which
he was to receive fifteen hundred dol-
lars. He got a five hundred dollar ad-
vance before starting to work, and
when he turned in the second install-
ment (none of it had been printed
yet) got five hundred dollars more,
and asked for the third five hundred
dollars as an advance before finishing
the tale. The editor, in an effort to
save money, apparently, declared that,
after all, the story didn't appear to be
worth more than one thousand dol-
lars—this when he had the two In-
stallments in his office. 'All right,'
said O. Henry. '1 won't write the
third one then.' And he didn't. He
laughed at the editor. 'Well then,'
said the latter, 'I'll run the. two parts
and then let our readers have a guess-
ing contest as to how the story ends—
and put up, perhaps, a five hundred
prize to the win-ner.' For a moment
the author thought he was outwitted.
Then he said: 'Go ahead—and I'll win
the prize.' He intended to win it, too."
An Office Business Only.
A young man called at the office of
a Justice of the peace and with some
hesitation made known his business,
which was to be married. The justice
replied that ho thought ho could per-
form the service, and asked if the
young man had his license.
"Yes, sir," the youth replied.
"Well, where is the young lady?"
"She—she's at her father's."
"Well, bring her here."
"She'd rather be married at home,
"And you expect me to go there and
"Yes, sir, if you please."
"Young man," said the Justice, "this
office of mine is like a department
store. We sell matches here, but we
don't deliver them at the house."—
Marie was making her first visit to
the beach. She was fearlesB of the
water, and spent as much of her time
i-i bathing as she was allowed. One
morning there was an unusually
strong undertow, and many of the
bathers spoke of It. Marie, hearing
them, stowed away the new phrase
in her mind.
When she came in from her bath,
plie told how fine the water was, and
told of the fun she had had. Then,
assuming her grown-up manner, she
remarked: "Oh, but the undertaker
was strong this morning!"
in a truly remarkable array of indus-
tries. These factories alone represent
an investment of over $40,000,000 and
are employing 60,000 workmen.
It is true that coffee is the staple,
but these factories are turning out cot-
ton and woolen fabrics; they are ma-
king rope, twines and papers. There
are breweries, marble quarries, metal
industries of various natures; vast es-
tates that are devoted to the culture
of rice, and square miles of territory
that produce enormous quantities of
fruits that are shipped in all direc-
tions. Sao Paulo has gone extensively
into grape culture, and is turning out
wines that are becoming vastly popu-
lar in several countries. Agriculture
of a general nature has engaged the
attention of the residents of the state
to a greater degree in the last few
years, and as a consequence the rail-
ways are extending in every direction
throughout the state. As an indica-
tion of the volume of business trans-
acter through the port of Santos it
last year reached a grand total of five
and a half million tons, which com-
pares very favorably with the trade
of Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Ayres, the
two largest South American ports.
In great measure this progress is
duo to the far-sighted and patriotic
efforts of those statesmen who have
directed the destinies of tho state, and
it has been recently stated by a South
American historian that the history of
the State of Sao Paulo was the history
of all Brazil.
His Real Calling.
There is a writer in New York who
has achieved little success, but who,
being amply supplied with worldly
goods, refuses to be discouraged. So
he keeps turning out books the merits
of which he earnestly attests by word
of mouth and heavy purchases from
the publishers. He is a long time
friend of Simeon Ford, boniface, wit
and philosopher. That Mr. Ford Is
the only one who ever read all of his
friend's books probably furnishes a
reason why the attentuated hotel man
is one of the most solemn looking of
They were at dinner recently when
the author said: "Sim, you've been
awfully kind to me—you are my real
audience, for you've suffered like a
friend and read all I have written.
Sometimes I think that 1 have made a
great mistake and I am not really an
author after all."
"I think you're right," assented Mr.
Ford. "You're a bom chemist."
"How's that?" suspiciously asked
"Well," remarked Simeon, "every
book you write becomes a drug on the

Ex-Preslder.t Roosevelt Pays Enthusi-
astic Tribute to Mission
In Uganda, Mr. Roosevelt responded
to an invitation to open a new addi-
tion to the Mengo C. M. S. hospital.
Mr. Roosevelt said:
"Long before I came here I had
known of the work that was being
done in Uganda, and felt particularly
anxious to see it. Hero you have a
particularly intelligent native race,
which has already developed a very
interesting culture of its own, a cul-
ture both political and social. And the
great work must of necessity be to try
to help that race onward, and to try
to do it in a practical fashion, and to
do It so that the doing of it shall bo
primarily a benefit to the race, and,
secondly, a benefit to your own people
from whom you come.
"I have the strongest feeling as to
the good that is being done by the
medical missionary. There must be
seme visible fruit in the life and work
ot the man who preaches if his preach-
ing is going to have a very great ef-
fect upon those to whom he preaches.
That visible fruit can be shown in
many different ways, and one of the
most efficient ways of showing it is
by just such work as is being done in
connection with this building, which
it will naturally be a source of pecu-
liar pride to myself to have my name
associated with, and which I now
take pleasure In declaring to be

Didn't Know the Purpose.
Mark Twain, as an example of un-
conscious humor, used to quote a
Hartford woman who said one day in
the late spring:
"My husband is the dearest fellow.
'Jim,' I said to him this morning, 'are
you very hard up Just now?'
" 'I ccrtainly am hard up,' he re-
plied soberly. 'This high cost of liv-
ing is terrible. I don't know what I'm
going to do.'
" 'Then, Jim,' said I, 'I'll give up all
thought of going to the country for
July and August this year.'
"But the dear fellow's face changed,
and he said:
"'Indeed, then, you won't, darling. I
thought you wanted to buy a hat with
an aigrette or some such foolishness.
| No, no. my darling—Jim can always
find the money to let his dear little
wife go to the country.'"
A Clean Man
Outside cleanlioess is less thnn hall the battle. ' A man may
scrub himself a dozen times a day, and still be unclean. Good
health means cleanliness not only outside, but inside. It means
■ clean stomach, clean bowels, clean blood, a clean liver, and
new, clean, healthy tissues. The man who is clean in this way
will look it and act it. He will work with energy and think
clean, clear, healthy thoughts.
He will never be troubled with liver, lung, stomach or hlood
disorders. Dyspepsia and indigestion originate in unclean atom*
tichs. Blood diseases are found where there is uaclean blood.
Consumption and bronchitis mean unclean lungs.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
prevents these diseases. It makes • man's insides clean
and healthy. It cleans the digestive organs, makes pure*
clean blood, and clean, healthy flesh.
It restores tone to the nervous system, and cures nervous exhaustion and
prostration. It contains no alcohol or habit-forming drugs.
Constipation is the most unclean uncleanliness. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pel-
lets cure it. They never gripe. Easy to take as candy.
Putting It Up to Uncle.
Henry G. Brooks, the well-known
New York lawyer, talking about do-
mestic troubles, has had his share of
the servant problem, though he won't
admit It. However, he is frank enough
to tell one on himself, as he did re-
cently at the Waldorf-Astoria.
"We have a mighty good girl who
got word that her uncle was very ill.
She asked to be allowed to go away
for a few clays and go to the funeral.
After a week had passed we com-
menced to get nervous. So a note
was sent to her inquiring when she
would be able to return and how her
"We got a reply something like this:
"'Dear Sir: 1 will be back as soon
as possible. Uncle Is getting weaker
and weaker. Ma has told him I can't
stay here much longer, and 1 know he
don't want, me to lose my job.' "
"It's a shame," commented the
friend of the restaurant proprietor.
"What's a shame?" asked the res-
taurant man in surprise.
"Why, that you should give that
pretty waitress all the tough steaks
for the patrons at her table."
"Oh, I pay her extra for that. You
see she is so pretty not one man
would kick if the steaks were so
tough they pulled his teeth out."
A Tart Tongue.
Col. Robert C. Carter, at a Nash-
ville banquet, was talking about cam-
"Then there was Dash of Company
A," he said. "Dash had the reputation
of being the nastlest-tongued man in
"It was Private Dash, you know,
who, out foraging one evening on a
rich estate, came accidentally upon
the owner's wife, a grande dame In
"Dash asked her for food. She re-
fused him. He asked again. But, still
refusing, she walked away.
" 'No,' she said, 'I'll give you noth-
ing, trespassing like this! I'll give
you nothing. My mind is made up.'
" 'Made up, is It?' said Dash. 'Like
the rest of you, eh?'"
"My wife," writes I). "W. Bates, of Oalrlwcll, 0., "thinks
