A VOICE FROM THE PULPIT.
Rev. Jacob D. Van Doren, of St
Sixth street, Fond Du Lac, Wle., Pres-
byterian clergyman, says: “I had at-
tacks of kidney disor-
ders which’kept me In,
the house for days at
a time, unable to do
anything. What I suf-
r fered can hardly be
set In, the particulars
of which I will be
pleased to give in a
personal interview to
any one who requires
information. This I
say, Doan’s Kidney
Pills caused a general
— improvement in my
health. They brought great relief by
lessening the pain and correcting the
action of the kidney secretions."

The Whistling Boy.
The whistling boy has been cele-

mained for a New Jersey farmer to
clench sentiment with a sound prin-
He wanted a boy to pick his grapes
and went among his neighbors, look-
ing for one who whistled. He found
such a boy without difficulty, and sent

to cease whistling until the last grape
Any one who has tried to whistle
and eat grapes at the same time
knows how little of the farmer’s har-
vest was deflected into the boy’s stom-
ach. But tho tale recalls that older
one of the boy whose father sent him
down cellar to draw a pitcher of cider,
and ordered him to whistle while ho

a time, however, and then went on
again. When the boy reappeared he
was asked why he had stopped.
"Only to wet my whistle,” he said.

Protesting Against Rvts Reduction.
Atlanta, Ga.—Tho recent proposi-
tion of J. Pope Brown, Chairman of
the Georgia Railroad commission, to
reduce the passenger rate In Georgia
from three to two cents per mile wa*
protested againiff by the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers, the Order
of Railway Conductors, and unions of
(be blacksmiths, machinists and teleg-
raphers, boilermakers, railway train-
men, carpenters and joiners, clerks
And car men. These organisations em-
ployed an attorney especially to rep-
resent them, who urged that such a
reduction would work against the
prosperity of the state and lead to a
induction in the number of railroad
employes, as well as of their wages.
The Travelers' Protective Association
also protested that a reduction, as
proposed, would result la fewer trains
and poorer service.
A student of bird life, who has been
Investigating the question as to the
hour in summer when the commonest
small bird, - wakes up and begins to
sing, says that the green finch Is the
earliest riser, as it sings about 1:30
o'clock In the,morning. The black
cap begins at 2:30, and the quail half
an hour later.
It is nearly 4 o’clock, and the sun iSs
well up, before the first real songster
appears—the merry blackbird.1 Then
comes the thrush, followed by the
robin and the v/ren, and last the house
sparrow and the tomtit.
Thus it will be seen that the lark's
reputation as an early riser Is not de-
served. In fact, he Is a very sluggard,
for he does not rise until long after
many of the hedgerow birds have been
about for some time. ’’

Fun With Shadow Verbs.
To play the game of shadow verbs
a white sheet is fastened tightly
across a doorway and a large lamp
set behind It, says the Detroit Free
Press. The children separate into
two parties, one outside the sheet,
while the others remain seated,
facing the suspended sheet. .The out-
side party chooses a verb, which the
'others are to guess and perform.
When their decision is made they
call to the leader of the inside party
and say, "The verb we have chosen
rhymes with ‘rake,’ ” or whatever it
may rhyme with. The leader then
joins her followers and consults with
them what the first guess shall be.
Bake would rhyme with rake, and if
It is decided to act thus, several of
the party step before the lamp, which
casts their shadows on the sheet, and,
without speaking, go through the mo-
tions making and baking bread. If
the guess Is right—that is, “to bake”
was the verb chosen—the spectators
clap their hands. If wrong, they cry,
When they hear the "No, no!" the
actors retire and arrange what to do
next. Make, quake, take, wake, are
all acted in turn until the clap of ap-
proval announces that they have been
successful In guessing the verb. Then
tjie actors take the steps vacated by
the spectators, who in their turn be-
come shadows and act the verbs chos-
en by the other party.

In the evening the house caught
fire, and before the fire engine ar-
rived the blaze had gained firm hold
and little could be saved. Some of
the men discovered the dog and tried
to coax or drive him from the room,
but Stubb held his post. His would-
be roucuerB did all they could to get
•him out, but he would not budge.
Warning growls showed that he
would use his teeth if the men resort-
ed to force, and finally, in their ef-
forts to save the dog, the firemen
turned two streams of water on him.
Even this did not dislodge him.
The dog’s master was found and
notified of the fire. When he reached
his home the roof had fallen in and
the building was a mass of flames.
He gave one clear whistle, and Stubb,
who had defied fire and water and all
human inducements, bounded out of
the house, and the next Instant was

By the Heat of Your Hands.
Take an ordinary cork and place a
needle in it, point up. Take a piece
of common paper about 2% inches
long and slightly over a third of an
inch wide. Fold the paper length-
wise and crosswise, so as to find the
exact center of it. Now unfold the
paper, smooth It out well, slightly
bend two diagonal corners upward,
then rest the center of the paper on
the needle point. If you place It
properly it will balance perfectly.
Next stretch your open hands about
the paper, quite close, but not touch-
ing it. Immediately the paper will be-
gin to revolve, the heat from your
bands causing it to turn.
A Dog’s Faithfulness.
The bulldog’s tenacity of grip Is

• This is a simple little game, but it
makes lots of fun. One of the players
is to be blindfolded and the others
stand about the room as they please.
The blindfolded one then walks or
gropes around until he tbuches a play-
er, and the player touched must stand
still and make a noise in Imitation of
some animal, say, a cat, a dog, a cow,
a pig or a horse.
If the blindfolded player chooses,
he can have the sound made three
times, and. If he then .guesses the

MAGNET AS PLAYTHING.
With a common bar or horseshoe
magnet, such as may be had at a toy
store, very interesting experiments
may be made. First, test the poles
of the magnet with a common pocket
compass, and mark them north and
south. If they are already marked,
test them anyhow, as French magnets
marked N. and S. mean just the re-
verse of what they mean to us.
To test the poles, see which end of
the magnet attracts the north end of
the compass magnet; that end is the
south pole of your magnet, and it
should repel the south end of the
compass magnet. Mark it S„ and
mark the other end N., testing It also
for your own satisfaction. It will, of
course, attract the south end of the
pocket 'compass and repel the one
like Itself, the north end.
Magnetize a number of long-eyed
magnets used marked In each case,
and with a letter also showing those
in which the same number makes
more than one figure.
Try to magnetize pieces of soft
Iron, like nails, for Instance, and
they will magnetize Instantly as soon
as the magnet touches them. You
may thus have a long string of nails,
nanglng one to another, If the mag-
net be strong enough. Now pull the
first nail from the magnet, and all
the others will fall, as they all lose
their magnetism the moment they
leave the magnet.
Heat one of the nails red hot, and
try to attract It by the magnet; It
will not be possible to do it, but as
it cools It will be gradually attracted,
until, when It Is cool, it will be at-
tracted as strongly, as ever before.
If you heat your magnet In the
same way It will also lose Its power,

needles of the same size, so that their
points will all be north poles, by
placing them, one at a time, on a ta-
ble and drawing the north pole of the
magnet over each needle several
times In the same direction, begin-
ning each time at the point. Now float
the needles In water vertically by
sticking the eye of each Into the
smallest piece of cork that will sup-
port it, letting the upper part of the
•ye Just project above the cork.
Hold the north h«!« of your magnet
above the floating needles, and they
will arrange themselves into regular
figures, according to the number of
needles used. Sometimes the same
number will form more,than one fig-
ure, and by jarring tbe vessel con-
taining the water you may make one
figure charge to Another. In the

on cooling; so you had better refrain
ftoin the experiment unless you de-
sire to lose the magnet.
Now pass an Inch or two of thread
through the eye of ope of your nee-
dles and magnetize the needle by
rubbing it in the same direction sev-
eral times over the same pole ci
your magnet. Place the horseshoe
on the table, and, bolding the thread
“between your thumb and your first
finger, let the point of the needle be
directly above the pole that attracts
It and about a quarter of an Inch dis-
tant from it. Then make a circular
sweep with your hand, so that the
point renu.ua in its posit Ion and the
eye Ib brought down toward the
er pole. If you become skilful in do-
ing this,-the needle will remain sue-

Beecher, who withdrew from that
body while charges were pending
against him . Dr. Henry A. Stlmson,
pastor of the Manhattan Congregar

the association. Dr. 8tlmson’s eyee
