In 1808 Napoleon formed the idea of having a traveling library in order to make his hours of intellectual recre- ation independent of the exigencies of a campaign or the delays of a courter. The proposed library was to form about a thousand volumes. The books were to he of small duodecimo size printed in good type, and without mar. gins in order to save space. They were to be bound in morocco, with flexible covers and limp backs. The boxes for their conveyance were to be covered with leather and lined with green velvet, and were .to average 60 volumes apiece, in two rows like the shelves in a library. A catalogue was to accompany them, so arranged that the emperor could readily find any desired volume. The distribution of subjects was as follows: Forty volumes on religion, 40 of epic poetry, 40 of the drama, 60 volumes of other poetry, 60 volumes of h!story and 100 novels. "In order to complete the quota," ran the instructions, "the balance shall be made up of historical memoirs."~James Westfall Thomp- son, in the Atlantic. BOY'S TERRIBLE ECZEMA. Mouth and Eyes Covered with Crusts --Hands Pinned Down--Miracu- lous Cure by Cuticura. "When my little boy was six months old, he had eczema. The sores extend- ed so quickly over the whole body that we at once called in the doctor. We then went to another doctor, but he could not help him, and in our despair we went to a third one. Mat. ters became so bad that he had regu- lar holes in his cheeks, large enough~ to put a finger into. The food had to be given with a spoon, for his mouth was covered with crusts as thick as a finger, and whenever he opened the mouth they began to bleed and sup- purate, as did also his eyes. Hands arms, chest and back, in short the whole body was covered over and over. We had no rest by day or night. Whenever he was laid in his bed, we had tb pin his hands down; otherwise he would scratch hls face and make an open sore. I think bi~ face must have itched most fearfully. "We finally thought nothing could help, and I had made up my mind to send my wife with the child to Eu- rope, hoping that the sea atr might cure him, otherwise he was to be put under good medical care there. But, Lord be blessed, matters came differ- ently, and we soon saw a miracle. A friend of ours spoke about Cuticura. We ~aade a trial with Cuticura Soap, Ointment and Resolvent, and within ten days or two weeks we r.4~iced a decided improvement. Just as quickly as the sickness had appeared It also began to disappear, and within ten weeks the child was absolutely well, and his skin was smooth and white as never before. F.

A Canton (0.) theological student in- terested in baseball wrote a thesis on "Baseball Among the Ancients," from which are gleaned the following facts: Abraham made a sacrifice. The Prodigal Son made a home run. Cain made a base hit when he killed Abel. David was a great long-di~tance thrower. Moses shut out the Egyptians at the Red sea. Moses made his first run when he slew the Egyptian. The devil was the first coacher. Eve stole first--Adam stole second. When Isaac met Rebecca at the well she was walking with a pitcher. Samson struck out a great many times when he beat the Philistines. Laundry work at home would be much more satl~actory if the right Starch were used. In order to get the desired stiffness, It is usually neces- sary to use so much starch that the beauty and fineness of the fabric Is hidden behind a paste of varying thickness, which not only destroys the appearance, but also affects the wear- /ng quality of the goods. This trouble can he entirely overcome by using De- fiance Starch, as it can be applied much more thinly because of its great- er streggth than other makes. Ancestry of Olon Boucicault.

Most of It Goes for Diamonds--Larger Proportion of These in Uncut State Than Ever Before Is Brought In, Washington.--More diamonds were imported into the United States dur. ing the last fiscal year than ever be- fore. Their value was $8,000.000 above that of the preceding year, which for. merly held the record, the gems im- ported in 1906 being worth $55,000,000. In 1903 the t~tal was $26,000,000, only $1,000,000 less than in 1905, while in 1904 the total was only $19,000,000.! The total value of all precious stones imported last year was $40,247,010.I Diamonds exceeded all other precious stones in value in the ratio of almost] seven to one. About $10,500,000 worth of diamonds imported in 1906 were uncut, to be prepared for use by the diamond.cut. ting establishments of the United States, while over $24,000,000 worth were cut but not set. There has been a slow but steady growth in the is. portatlon of uncut diamonds, while cut diamonds have shown a greater fluctuation than those not cut, The total value of uncut dlamonds import. ed in 1900 was a little less than $4 000,000, in 1902 a little more than $6,000,000, in 190~'] nearly $11,000,000, and since that per|od has 6ontinued at about the same figure, while cut dia- monds, importations of which ht 1900 were a little less than $8,000,000, were over $15,000,000 In 1903, and $24,000,. 000 in 1906. This importation of diamonds in the uncut state is a development of recent years. The census reports gave the number of wage-earners engaged in: lapidary work in the United States In 1890 at only 92, and in 1900 at and the value of the products in 4::~ at $315,604, and in 1900 at $5,786,281. Prior to ]896 the value of diamonds imported in the uncut state was less than $1,000,000 annually. In 1897 it passed the million-dollar line, and has gradually increased until, as indi. cated, it has averaged about $10,000,. 000 a year during the last three or four years. NO SHAVE IN FIFTY YEAR~. Pennsylvania Man Keeps Pledge Made When Fremont Lost. Meadvllle, Pa.--M. T. Freeman, of Cusevago township, Crawford county, .one of the original Fremont Republic- ass, is now in his eighty-first year, and has not felt the touch of a razor for half a century. His first presidentia vote was. cast for Gem Taylor in 1848, and since the formation of the Re. publican party he has been an ardent Republican, voting for Gen. Fremont, the first nominee of the Party for pres- ident, tn 1856. At that time Mr. Freeman made a compact that he would not shave uh. til Fremont was elected. His candi- date lost aud Mr. Freeman remained steadfast to his agreement. No razor has touched his face since 1856, and, i while he never let the beard grow to an unusual length, still he has never had it trimmed short. Mr. Freeman received an invitation, as one of the original Republicans, to attend the golden jubilee of the Repub- lican party, held in Philadelphia. Mr. Freeman is still a bright and In- teresting conversationalist. When 15 :years old he attended the celebrated Whig and Democratic mass meeting, held in Erie on September 10, 1840, which, undoubtedly, was the largest mass meeting ever held in this end of the state, people traveling in wago~a 100 miles to attend. Those were the times when "Tippecanoe and Tyler, Too," "Log Cabin and Hard Cider," and "Roast Beef and a Dollar a Day'* were the slogans. OLYMPIA'S FIGHTING DAYS OVER. Dewey's Flagship to Be Converted Into a Schoolroom. Washlngton.--The 'cruiser Olympia, on" which Admiral Dewey sailed into Manila bay May 1, 1898, Will fight no more. The vessel will be turned 6per to the naval academy for the annual cruises of the midshipmen and for general instruction purposes, It is not intended that the cruiser shall have any further activity in the naval service. The Olympia Is now at the Norfolk navy yard. A board of survey has been ordered to determine the repairs necessary to place the vessel in first. class condition. It Is expected these repairs can be made wlthin a year. The ship Will then be turned over to the naval academy. The authorities of the navy depart. ment decided that because of the sentiment attached to Admiral Dewey's flagship the vessel can here. after best be utilized In educating fu- ture naval officers. Value of Rabbits to Australia, London.~[t was stated recently at a public hearing in Australia that $5,000,000 worth of rabbits were shipped to England every year; that the rabbit, as a commercial commod- ity, was "only in its infancy," and that the trade would probably grow to $25,000,000 a year.

How tenderly their health should be not by constant medication, but by careful avoidance of every medicine of an it. ous or objectionable nature, and if at anytime a remedial agent isrequired, to nature, only those of known excellence should be used; remedies which are and wholesome and truly beneficial in effect, like the pleasant laxative Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. Syrup of Fig5 come into general favor in many millions of well informed families, whose of its quality and excellence is based upon personal knowledge and use. Syrup of Figs has also met with the approval of physicians generally, they know it is wholesome, simple and gentle in its action. We inform all re ble physicians as to the medicinal principles of Syrup of Figs, obtained, by original method, from certain plants known to them to act most beneficially presented in an agreeable syrup in which the wholesome Californian blue figs used to promote the pleasant taste; therefore it is not a secret remedy and we are flee to refer to all well informed physicians, who do not approve of medicinea and never favor indiscriminate self-medication. Please to remember and teach your children also that the genuine Syrup of always has the" full name of the ComDany~Oa]ifornia Fig Syrup Co.~ printed on the front of every package and that it is for sale in bottles of one only. If any dealer offers any other than the regular Fifty cent size, or printed thereon the name of any other company, do not accept it. If you fail to the genuine you will not get its beneficial effects. Every family should always ~ a bottle on hand, as it is equally beneficial for the parents and the chil~ henever a laxative remedy is required. e o e - ' "" ' IIII- I ooe Close Second to American Tramp.
