Remarkably beautiful effeHp are se-
cured by the use of marble as a
means of transmitting light instead of
glass. This has been accomplished
by a new process which has been de-
vised by an engineer of Hamburg, W
Engle. He has succeeded in making
plates of marble no more than three
millimeters in thickness and for the
use designated it is available up to
20 millimeters thick. The suitability
of marble for this purpose was real-
ised some time ago, but the difficulty
encountered was that of securing the
marble in slabs of 'sufficient thinness.
These plates permit of the passage of
a greater amount of light than frosted
glass does, and at the same time im-
parts to the rays a much pleasanter
color. Most opal glass imparts to the
light an undesirable greenish tinge,
while the light which passes through
the marble has a reddish violet which
is much pleasanter. After the marble
has been ground down to the desired
thickness it Is subjected to an immer-
sion in oil under high pressure, and
the effects secured in this manner are
said the superior to those of stained
Coffee to Postum.
The large army of persons who
k»T* found relief from many chronio
aliments by changing from coffee to
Postum as a daily beverage, is grow-
ing each day.
It Is only a simple question of try-
ing it for oneself in order to know
the joy of returning health as realized
by an Ills, young lady. She writes:
“I had been a ooffee drinker nearly
all my life and it affected my stomach
—caused Insomnia and I was seldom
without a headache. I had heard
about Postum and how beneficial it
was, so concluded to quit coffee and
*T was delighted with the change.
I can now sleep well and seldom ever
have headache. My stomach has got-
ten strong and I can eat without suf-
fering afterwards. I think my whole
system greatly benefited by Postum.
“My brother also suffered from
stomach trouble wfoile he drank cof-
fee, but now, since using Postum, he
feels so much better he would not go
back to coffee for anything."
Name given by Postum Co., Battle
Creek, Mich. Read “The Road to
Wellville," in pkgs.
Postum comes in two forms:
Regular Postum—must be well
boiled—15c and 25c packages.
Instant Postum—is a soluble pow-
der. A teaspoonful dissolves quickly
in a cup of hot water and, with
cream and sugar, makes a delicious
beverage instantly—30c and 50c tins.
The cost per cup of both kinds is
about the same.

Huerta resigned from the provisional

Wednesday night, and his resignation
was accepted by the senate and
chamber of deputies by a vote of 121
Gen. Huerta and Gen. Blanquet im-
mediately left the capital.
Huerta’s resignation was submit-
ted through the department of foreign
relations. It was. read in the house
and was greeted with cries of “Viva
Huerta.” It then was referred to
the joint committees of gobernacion.
After brief consideration the com-
mittees reported, accepting the resig-
nation in the following terms:
“Article 1. We accept the resigna-
tion presented by Gen. Victoriano
Huerta as president of the Mexican

session approved the report.

national palace under an escort of
presidential guards, and all along the
way was greeted with tumultuous
Two deputies spoke vigorously
against the acceptance of Huerta’s
resignation, one calling it “weak sub-
mission to the United States.” Two
other deputies spoke for acceptance,
declaring it was the only way to save
A special committee, comprising
former members of the chamber of
deputies, left for Celaya to arrange
with the constitutionalist leaders for
a peaceful entry into tn« capital.
Shortly after 8 o'clock Gen. Huerta,
accompanied by a few friends, enter-
ed the French cafe which he has
visited for a year or more, and took
his usual place near the entrance.
An immense crowd followed the
ex-president to the cafe, shouting
“vivas” for him. Many shook him
by the bond, while others embraced
him and several kissed him on the
cheek. The stern old soldier was
overcome and tears filled his eyes.
He raised his glass and said: “This
will be my last toast in my favorite
resort, and I djink to the new presi-
dent of' M exico."
There was complete lack of dis-
order in the capital, and the theaters
and cafes were crowded. The popu-
lace now is hopeful that peace is
In sight. Huerta’s popularity appar-
ently increased greatly after his resig-
nation, as Mexicans now look on him
as a good loser.

TANGO AS CAUSE OF CRIME
GET WIRELESS BY BEDSPRING
Eastern Amateur Experiments With a
Novel Form of Antennae and
Cyrus H. Flandroaux of Peekskill,
X. Y., gives the following interesting
account of his experiments with _a
novel form of antennae for wireless
“There are many tilings used as an-
tennae to catch the mysterious elec-
tric wives which carry our wireless
messages through space, and I find
that the springs of my bed serve as
very efficient antennae. My room is
on the second story of my house, and
by using these springs as antennae I
can easily read the signals sent out
every night by the wireless station at
Sayville, L. I., although they are not
by any means so loud as when I use
my outdoor antennae, which are 40
feet above ground, 60 feet long and
consists of four wires on spreaders,
the wires being two feet apart.
“The bedspring antennae are best
for use with nearby high power sta-
tions. Sayville, I.. I., is about fifty
miles from Peekskill. With my out-
door antennae 1 continually hear the
Arlington (Va.) naval station when it
sends out the correct time signals at
11:55 a. m and at 9:55 p. m.; also
the weather reports, Brooklyn navy
yard: New I-ondon, Conn.; Cape Cod
and ethers, including amateur stations
too numerous to mention.

I hold a station license and an oper-
ator’s license, both issued by the
United States government. My offi-
cial call is 2 V U.”
Brooklyn Judge Bfames Theft by Two
Youths to Nights Given to
In suspending sentence in the cases
of two youths who had pleaded guilty
to attempted grand larceny, County
Judge Fawcett in 'Brooklyn listed
“white lights and tango nights” in
the catalogue of incentives to crime.
“You can’t expect to dance all
night,” he said, “and lie abed half the
day, yet always have money for your
carousals, unless you steal it. And
let me tell you our jails and peniten-
tiaries are full of people with Just
such ideas. If your family had given
you good beatings instead of money
Ao spend, it would have been better
The boys, John Colver, twenty years
old, of 487 Hancock street, and Carl-
ton Chapman, sixteen, of 362 Jefferson
avenue, had been Indicted for stealing
money and jewelry from Adelaide Wis-
ton, keeper of a furnished room
house, where they lived for a time.
They belonged to respectable families
of moderrfte means. Both promised
the judge to go borne and begin
again, Chapman to return to school,
and Colver to work. Both wore tan-
go pumps and silk shirts when ar-
raigned.—New York Sun.

instead of owning my own home?”
asked Mr. Crosslots.

One Hundred Years Ago.
The curious modes which "women ,
affect now began as far back as 1798. |
which is a period we should hardly |
wish to copy in most respects. A j
dance not at all unlike the tango was j
in vogue at that time, and had many J
exponents, who danced in loose bod- j
ices opening in a V shape from the j
shoulders almost to the waist. Skirts j
were slit and were often made of
We may return to the gowns of that
period, which were without waists,
having simply a girdle to, the bust,
with skirts caught up rather short in
front and slightly trained at the back.
In 1800 women wore sandals and
bare feet. Corset belts were only
about two inches wide. Some gowns
were caught up to the knee with large
cameos. Soon fashion overreached it-
self, and then came crinolines, pointed
footgear and unnaturally small waists.
Are we coming to this?

Puzzled the Parson.
At a marriage service performed
some time ago in a little country
church in Georgia, when the minister
said in a solemn tone: “Wilt thou
have this man to be thy wedded hus-
band?” instead of the woman answer-
ing for herself, a gruff man’s voice
answered: “I will.” The minister
looked up very much perplexed, and
paused. He repeated the sentence,
and again the same gruff voice an-
swered, “I will.” Again the minister
looked up surprised, not knowing what
to make of it, w-hen one of the grooms-
men at the end of the row said:
"She’s deef, parson, an’ I’m answer-
in’ for her.”

would try it. By the time I had taken
