'Straw* Show Which Way the Wind Blows." This is an old adage and one that has been demonstrated as truthful many times. The fact that the excursion business in Colorado seeks to use one particular line is astraw that indicates where the excursionists find the best scenery, lowest rates and best train service. The line in question, the Colorado Midland, has handled more excursion and tourist business this season than ever before in its history, and this is a straw which indicates that the Colorado Midland always offers the lowest rates, the 'finest scenery and the best train service through tho Mountains and to the Colorado Tourist Resorts.

A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in his vicinity freshen into smiles. Find n way or mnke one. Everything is either pusher or pushed. The world always listens to a man with n will in him. The only worthy end of all learning, of all science, of all life, in fact, is that human beings shduld love one another better. Brooding over trouble is like surrounding one's self with a fog; it magnifies all the objects seen through it. Occupation of the mind prevents this. It is not similarity but sympathy in differences that forms the groundwork of social happiness: and in the open heart nlone cau the spirit of sympathy find lodgement. A generous friendship no cold medium knows, burns with one love, with one resentment glows; one should our interests and our passions be; my friend must hate the man that injures me. How can a man learn to know himself? By reflection never, only by action. In the measure in which thou seekest to do thy duty shalt thy know what is in thee. 'But what is thy duty? The demand of the hour. NO WOMAN is EXEMPT. The AVhltn Squadron. In 1885 Commander Wilde was In charge of the Dolphin, then attached to the North Atlantic Squadron, and then an idea evolved by him originated, the term, "The White Squadron." In July, 1888, the Dolphin was in New York harbpr, whore the heat was almost insupportable. The exposed surface of the ship Wns like the top of a stove, and one day the commander, chancing to touch it, almost blistered his hand. A thought occurred to him, and he sent a boat ashore, with a note asking Naval Construction Wilson to come to him. When the visitor arrived, he was asked to lay his hand on the ship's side. Of course the hand was quickly withdrawn. "What do you think of living in a furnace like that?" asked the commander. "It is terrible," was the reply. "Is there no way of cooling her oil'?" "I have thought of a way, and you can help me. Iwautyouto send me some white paint, with instructions to use it on this ship." The constructor looked grave. Naval regulations declared that all war ships should be painted black, and this daring young man was asking for a white hulk. "Write me au official request to that effect," he said, after a moment's consideration. The paint was rapidly applied, and although the heat without remained unchanged, the ship's temperature was rapidly lowered, until a fall of seventeen degrees could be recorded. The black paint had absorbed the heat; the white reflected it. The Dolphin started on her cruise, and in every port she was admired. One night when she was lying in Frenchman's Bay, the Secretary of the Navy, then William. C. Whitney, came to visit her. Commander Wilde expected to be centured for her changed apparel, but when he told the reason why the innovation had taken place, recounted the sufferings of his crew, and showed tho surgeon's report, the Secretary said, "You have clone right. Prom this time all the war ships shall be painted white."— Youth's Companion. Tlie Captain's Ecosomlcnl Wife. In a Massachusetts seaport to-,vu there is a retired sea Captain who makes a frequent boast that ho has the "smartest woman along shore." New instances of her enterprise are constantly coming to notice. The last one refers to an exploit by which who saved herself a doctor's bill. The Captain tells the story with great relish. "She's getting pretty heavy," ho begins, "and now and again whe'll miss her footing. Well, not ruaiiy months ago she missed it ou our stairs niid fell all in a heap down three steps on to her side. "When I got to her, she said, just as brisk as usual: 'Don't ask me if I've hurt myself, Cap'n, for of coarse I have. I reckon I've unjoiuted a boue in my left leg, falling ou U. Now don't try to pull me up. Let m scramble round a minute, and you go for the doctor." "Well, the doctor's our next neighbor, so it didn't take long to get him. He looked her over, and said thorn was a bone somawlieres round her left hip that was out of kilter. "At that mother rose right up OH her feet and toppled over the opposite way from what she'd fallen downstairs, and we heard a kind of a crack. "She looked up at the doctor with her mouth kind of whitish, but the same old twinkle iu her eyes, auil she says: 'I believe I've set that boue myself doctor,' and she had!"— Youth's Companion. Years of Veace ami Wuv. A survey of the powers of Europe shows that from the beginning of the ooutury to the eud of 1896 Turkey had experienced 37 years of war aucl 59 of peace; Spain comes next, with 31 years of war and 65 of peace; Francs, with 27 years of war and 69 of peasa; Kus- sia, 24 years of war and 72 of peace Italy, 23 years of wav and 73 of peace England, 21 years of war aud 75 ot peace; Austria-Hungary, 17 and 79; .Germany (exclusive of Prussia), 13 and 83; Sweden, 10 and 86; Portugal, 12 »ud 81, and Denrnftrl?, Q and 87, Regularity is a matter of Importance In every woman's life. Much pain is, however, endured In the belief that it is necessary and not alarming, when in truth it is all wrong and indicates derangement that m'ay cause serious trouble. Excessive monthly pain itself will unsettle the nerves and make women old before their time. The foundation of woman's health is a perfectly normal and regular per- 'ormance of nature's function. The statement we print from Miss GEU- TBUDB SIKES, of fclclred, Pa., is echoed n every city, town and hamlet iu this country. Read what she says: *• DEAR Mns. PINKHAM:—I feel like n new person since following your advice, and think it is my duty to let tho >ublic know the good yoxir remedies mve done me. My troubles were pain- ;ul menstruation and leueorrhoea. 1 was nervous and had spells of being confused. Before using your remedies [ never had any faith in patent medicines. I now wish to say that I never lad anything do me so much good for gainful menstruation as Lydia E. Pink- iam's Vegetable Compound; also would say that your Sanative Wash has cured me of leucorrhcea. I hope these few words may help suffering women." The present Mrs. Pinklmm's experience in treating female Ills is unparalleled, for years she worked side by side with Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham, and for sometime past has had sole charge of the correspondence department of her great business, treating by letter as many as a hundred thousand ailing women during a single year. All suffering women are invited to write freely to Mrs. Pinkham, at Lynn, MC.SS., lor advice about their health. Sensible Intention. "What are you going to be when you grow up?" asked an inquiring citizen of the 4-year-old boy next door, and the boy answered after some considerition: . "I am going to be a mnn!" And the inquiring citizen thought Ih at was a good idea. A Counting A machine has just been completec that will count and bind ia packages 600, QQQ postal cards iu tea hours. ARTISTIC HOMES. How :i Great manufacturer Him UroiiRlit Them Within Koucli or All. Probably at no time in the world's history has so much attention been paid to tho interior decoration of homes as at present. No homo, no matter how humble, is without its handiwork that helps to beautify the apartments and make the surroundings more cheerful. The taste of the American people lias kept pace with the age, and almoat every day brings forth something new in the way of a picture, a draping, a piece of furniture or other form of mural decoration. One of the latest of these has betm given to the world by the celebrated artist, Muvjlle, in a series of four handsome porcelain game plaques. Not for years has anything as handsome in this line been seen. The subjects represented by these plaques, are American Wild Ducks, American Pheasant, American Quail and English Snipe. They are handsome paintings and are especially designed for hanging on dining-room walls, though their richness and beauty entitles them to a place in the parlor of any home. These original plaques have been purchased at a cost of ?50,000 by J. C. Hublnger Bros. Co., manufacturers of the celebrated Elastic Starch, and In order to enable their numerous customers to become possessors of these handsome works of art they have had them reproduced by a special process In all the rich colors aud beauty of the original. They are finished on heavy cardboard, pressed and embossed in the shape of a plaque and trimmed with a heavy band of gold. They measure forty inches In circumference and contain no reading matter or advertisement whatever. Until October 1 Messrs. J. C. Hubln- ger Bros. Co. propose to distribute these* plaques free to their customers. Every purchaser of three ten-cent packages o£ BJastlc Starch, flat-iron brand, manufactured by J. C. Hubln- gor Bros. Co., Is entitled to receive one of these handsome plaques free from their grocer. Old and uew customers alike are entitled to the benefits of this offer. These plaques will not be sent through the mall, the only way to obtain them being from your grocer.

AsU your dealer to show you the plaques and tell > you about Elastic Starch. Accept no substitute.
