what brought about the federal
inquiry which Is now going on In
Washington about the cost of manu-
facture of news print.
It begins to look like Fort Worth
is going to do some wholesome cleaning
up. The mayor has put the ban on
boxing bouts and announces that no
more at them will be held In the city.
And now the grand Jury of Tarrant
county has asked for special Instruc-
tions on bribery, gambling, disorderly
houses amj gambig bouses. Judge Ben
M. Terrell has promised that body to
enlighten them. The best thing Fort
Worth can do is to abolish Hell’s Half

owes this to the decent people of Fort

each of them will soon be at home with

A Pittsburg, Pa, girl has given a
judgment for' $170,000 for breach of
promise. Inasmuch as she Is young
and the man she sued was seventy-

There is quite-a demand In Sherman
for old 5>r cast-off clothing for the
poor, and every family tbit can spare
a few garments should \seml them to
tbe court house, where tW church la-
dies of the city have opened a room
down stairs for the purpose of gather-
ing up and dll tributing them.
Fort Worth has paased a city ordi-
nance making it a finable offense for
a minor to enter a saloon. In the good
old days parents generally attended to
that, and Instead of having to pay a
fine in the court the -minor had an op-
eration performed on him with a thick-
soled slipper or a large branch from
some nearby tree.

BLOAN’S L1N1MEENT EASES PAIN
Sloan’s liniment is first thought of
mothers for bumps, bruises and
sprains that are continually happen-
ing to children. It quickly penetrates
and soothes without rubbing. Cleaner
and more effective than mussy plas-
ters or ointments. For rheumatic
aches, neuralgia pain and that grlppy
soreness after colds, Sloan's Liniment
gives prompt relief. Have a bottle
handy for bruises, strains, sprains
and all external pain. For the thous-
ands whose work calls them outdoors,
the pains and aches following expos-
ure are relieved by Sloan’s Liniment

A THE SEASON’S CHAMPIONS
' V -
Th^ Queen of May would have us think
That happiness lies in blossoming pink;
That Spring’s art eternal Garden of Eden,
Overgrown with things that are good for “feedin'.”
That joy is found in eating Salad.
The May-pole Dance, the bird's sweet ballad.
Tlie summer girl arrayed in white.
Roots for Hummer with all hA- might,
While in the sunshine, cheeks a-tannlng,
In elbow sleeves, and boys a-fanning,
Wonld have us know one’s only joys,
Are found In tennis courts and—boys,
Tlie Indian chief who blazed the trail
Makes ns lielieve,—pale-face and frail.
With warrior-like Intrigue and cunning.
That’s Autumn’s just the time for funning.
His Joys are brewed in witch’s pot,
And numbered by the scalps he'a got.
Old Santa says "It takes a freeze,
To help’to grow the Christmas Trees,”
With toys and nuts and bags of candy,
He bribes us to say: “Winter’s just dandy.”
And tho* we know It sounds like mocking,—
"Happiness lies hidden In hnmiier stocking.”
But Father Time, grown old and gray,
.Come along to have his say:
"Take my advlee: Enjoy each Season,
For otherwise ’twoukt be high trim sou.
Each season has its speMal beauties,
It's merry-making and its duties.
The Joy of plucking Spring’s bright flowers,
Comes after we have felt the showers.
We bid adieu to Indian summer,
Alas! to greet the lilgh-prlce plumber. ' —
Ho how, dear champions, one and all,
Live first the Spring, then 'Summer, Fall.
And after summer Joy rides, take winter rain,
Live on! "Twill soon be spring again.

er, is 67 years old today. Seuator
Kern Is one of the most popular

sence from tlie democratic ranks In

one. He was elected to the senate In
Mill and lieshtes tieing party floor
leader, was given the chairmanship of
the conference committee of that I>0(ly.
Senator Kern Is a native of Indiana
and a lawyer by profession. He began
to forge ahead In polities when he
settled In Indianapolis in 1885 and be-
came city solicitor. He was the demo-
cratic party's choice for governor In-

STING OF THE HONEYBEE.
About tho Moot Effootlvo Infornat Ma-
chine In Existence.
In proportion to Its size, tbe atlng of
the honeybee la probably the moat ef-
fective infernal machine In existence.
The stinging apparatus la smaller
than that ot a rattlesnake, yet a single
sting baa been known to kill a man.
When we realize that it is almost in-
visible and consider what it can do wa
cannot fail to be astounded. It eeems
the very quintessence of devlllshneas.
The honeybee's sting is complicated
—so complicated that many words and
much ink have been used in discuss-
ing Its construction and use.
It Is generally conceded that tbe
sting consists of a shaft of three parts,
the principal one being a sheath within
which move two barbed lancets. Like
tbe barbs of a fishhook, the lanceta are
not easily extracted from the flesh Into
which they have been driven. The
sheath and the lanceta combined form
a hollow tube through which the poi-
son flows from tbe poison sac.
Two hairy, soft projections, evident
ly very sensitive. Inform tbe bee wheu
she la hi contact with a stinguble ob-
ject—Popular Science Monthly.
OUR SECRETARIES OF WAR.
Only a F.w mi Them Had Any Practical
The first secretary of war of tbe
United Htates was Henry Knox, who
was bom in Boston July 20, 1750, of
Scotch Irish parentage. Knox was the
chief commander of the artillery
throughout the Revolution afticl was
secretary of war both before and after
Washington assumed the presidency,
being one of the few soldiers appointed
to that position.
His successor, Timothy Pickering,
had alyo seen active service, and
James McHenry, tbe third to hold the
I tost, had beeu a snrgeoh In the Revo-
lution. Kniuuel Dexter, the next In line,
was a lawyer, but Henry Dearborn*
Jefferson'* secretary of war, had had
much military experience. William
Eustis, apiiointed by Madison, was a
physician and gave way to a military
man, John Armstrong. James Monroe
atid William H. Crawford were law-
yers, and since their time most presi-
dents have apparently considered a
legal education the best quallflcatlon-
for a head of tbe war department.
U. 8. Grant, who held the war port-
folio for a brief period In 1867, and
WlUtam T. Sherman, whose tenure of
otttje was equally short, were the only
distinguished military men to hold the
post within tlie last half century— St.

needs a tonic to help her over the hard places.
When that time comes to you, you know what tonic
to take—Cardui, the woman’s tonic. Cardui h com-
posed of purely vegetable ingredients, which act

and helps build them back to stretch and health.

ailing women in its past half century of wonderful
success, and it will do the same for you.
You can't make a mistake in taking
The Woman’s Tonic
Miss Amelia Wilson, R. F. D. No. 4, Alma, Ark.,
says: “1 think Cardui is the greatest medicine on earth,
for women. Before I began to take Cardui, 1 was
so weak ar.d nervous, and had such awful dizzy
spells and a poor appetite. Now I feel as well and
as strong as 1 ever did, and can eat most anything.”
Begin taking Cardui today. Sold by all dealers.
