In hot ^weather one should drink water at from CO to f>5 degrees and drink slowly. Bread should be at least a day old, If not older, when eaten. Meat is much more easily digested than starchy vegetables. Meat, good bread, potatoes and milk free fropa germs should bo the foundation of every meal. You get more than twice as much nourishment from a poiind of wheat as from a pound of meat. Edwin Warlield. president of the Fidelity Trust and Deposit Company, of Baltimore, is a candidate for the Democratic nomination: as Governor of Maryland on the very unique platform that if nominated he will not spend a dollar in the campaign '• except for legititaate expenses, and that ho will publish an itemized; statement wiili the name of every man to whom ho pays money and the purpose for whlsh It wais paid. Considering tiie character,—at least the reputation,— of Maryland Democrats ; there is mighty little chance for Mr.j Warfield to win the nomination. The very best thing that couid'happen Maryland,-however, would be to have i him win it and then to hkve the Republican candidate for Governor make the same pledge •touching the expenditure of money; It would be worth I all it wouldn.t cost to surprise that c^nce with an honest commonwealth election.

Joe Cook, editor and postmaster at Ellinwood. wont to Kansas City and secured seventy-five harvest hands for his neighbors. The fact that he is that kind of a man probably accounts for his being postmaster. One advantage of being great and not dying suddenly is that you have your obituary set up in type many hours before the angel calls. For instance, the pope's notice has been in type for three days in most newspaper offices. An Emporia man who was found with a barn full of beer claimed that he kept it for his help. A man who can keep a good supply of beer on tap just now will have no trouble securing all the help he ne^ds. This is a pointer to the wheat men who are having trouble getting men.

After killing the two lions which had guarded the entrance to the cave Mustapha pressed forward, eager to grasp the hidden treasure. But a terrible figure arose in his pathway.

I In fact the demon was made of (bin air and Mustapha went through him without diflculty. , Almost immediately, however,^ another .^onster confronted him. It appeared to be composed of wings ^nd a proboscis, and it buzzed like a bu^z saw. Mustapha felt instinctively that the jig was up... "Dost thOu. too, guard the treasure?" ho asked, trembling. "I do," replied .the monster. "I am a mosquito from the Yucon and I love the blood of the gold seeker." And tlio monster stung Mustaplia until he thought he was in New Jersey.

Into them it i.s purposed to put 30 varieties of California birds. Including canaries, bluejays and linnets, and then to wntchthemclo.selj'to discover upon what thej- fca.'^t most. At certain times Ihe l )ird.«? will be killed and their stomachs exhaustively scrutinized by the ornithologist^. In this way it can be determined accurately what the proportion of fruit the birds eat i.s to the insects they consume. And then from this it ivill be determined what birds are most dc- sttructive to the codlin moth and the other destroyer.s of plnn^ life.- If the experimenters are luck.v enough to find a birrf that makes the codlin moth its prey, that species will be prop .Tgated in large numbers and distributed over tho state.

In a recent law case, where a lengthy typewritten document ol many sheets was in question, it was alleged that one of the pages included had been syb.siituted for auothei sheet. Although to a casual eye all the sheets seemed to be the work oi one hand, experts showed "that the spacing was quite uitTcrent. e.spccially between the end of one sentence and the beginning of another, and on the substitute sheet the new paragraphs began in quite a dilTerent position on the lines, and the letters were shaky instead of upright and i^m. And tho puncl nation—the crucial icai —was wholly different. The.experts were unable to trace the person who had done the bogtis type­ writ iritg, but they agreed that it was a woman, young, andlonly n beginner at typewriting; that she was nervou.s, not strong, and that her education was cmly moderately good. The writer of Ihe other sheets comprising the document was defined frorn the evenness, eorreetness and firmness of the typewriting to: be an experienced "typist."

The invention of the scathe, sajs the 15oston IJecord. is referred to in Ia'wis*and Newhall's "Jli.^tory of I,ynn." "^-liis scythe took the place of the English "bushwhacker" scythe, made of a piece of thin steel about IS inches lonjj- and three inehes wide. Jencks mone than doubled the length of ih^ scythe, reduced its width to lU. inches and stifTened it by welding a square bar on the l>ack. .

Fast, Samuel Davis, court stenographer of the Second <'ireuit, relates the Kansas City .Journal, says that an Irishman who several years ago tried to engage the l«-gal services of his father had the (idtlest ground for a lawsuit he has ever heard of. The Irishman wanted to sue his landlady for $15. lie explained that he made a contract to pay her three dollars a week for board, but she was to deduct 25cents for every meal he missed. Having got the coniraet iluly signed. Pat began to board elsewhere and charged t he lady with whom be had eontracte<l 25 cents for every nieal h,e missed. He figured out that by managing this way he missed $5.25 worth of meals each week, for which his contract required him to pay only three dollars,'so that by slaying .-iway he made $2.20 cdear. The ladlaiiy refused to pay him his "profits." and he wanted Mr. Davis to liring fcuit- against her fc^r him. "Father laughed at him a bit," Jlr. Davis says, "and he got indignant. 'A conthractis a conlbract,' said I'at, 'and she ought to be made to live up to Tier'n just as well as me to mine.' There were several other lawyers in town, and some of them were pretty hard up for cases; but I don't know of anylwdy that took that one after father turned it down."
