Boston, Mass, PISO'S CQRE FOR Through the Agenry of Valnftblft Oem» She Remove* Aehe* and Paint from the tinman System—The Treatment '• JfntHTdlly a Very Expenilv-e One. NEW panacea for all ills has made its appearance. But it is a Very expensive panacea and unless you have precious stones to burn you had better keep away from Mme. Ilonouix and suffer your ills in silence. For Mme. Honouix filalms to cure with the aid of precious stones, and after she gets through with them the ge"ms, in the vernacular, look like thirty cents. Mme. Honouix, who is a Parisian of the Parisians, arrived in New York on July 3, and is spending a two-months' vacation at Binghamton, N. Y., before bursting upon the metropolis in her role as healer. She is the inventor of the cure and has a large establishment in Paris that has become very popular among those who can afford to take the treatment. As the remedy requires expensive stones and often entails their total destruction, only the wealthy can afford a cure of this kind, tients Mme. Honouix tor coughs, colds uwoat tta WAR AND RED TAPE. Among her pa- numbers Sarah Bernhardt and Mme. Mocijeska, while the duchess of Marlborough recently called her for consultation. Mme. Honouix is said to be remarkably successful in the treatment of 'blindness and nervous diseases. She claims that virtue for these ills of mankind can be found in certain stones possessed by nothing else on earth. The treatment in some case consists simply in applying the jewel to the affected spot, when by an absorbent'process it removes the difficulty. * Again It is sometimes necesary to burn the stone and inhale the fumes or swallow the powder. One treatment, costs from 250 to 3,000 francs, according to the ailment, and it is no unusual thing for a patient to take a course of fifty treatments. Even at these prices Mme. Honouix says there is not a large profit, owing to the expense of the remedies. The stones used must be perfect, as a flaw would render their medical quality worthless. In the course of her experiences Mme. Hon- ouix has made some interesting discoveries regarding gems. She has in her possession a rare stone known as the "Babylonian Gem," which the ancients believed if rubbed assiduously would render the. holder invisible. Another curious legend connected with the v/ell known moonstone is that in its interior is a wax figure of the moon, and that the jewel waxes and wanes with the lunar orb. Chalcedony hung about the neck is infallible, says Mme. Hon- ouix, in dispersing sadness, and if any person carried one perforated with the hair of a donkey it would prove an amulet against all disaster. The crystal is used to disped phantoms and nervous hallucinations, while onyx, if powdered and taken with a teaspoonful of wine before retiring, will prevent nightmare and insomnia. The jasper, though an old-fashioned jewel, is proof against the bites of venomous serpents, spiders and scorpions. The properties of the ruby are endless. Bruised in water it is a panacea for all complaints. Powdered agate is also a favorite remedy. As far back as the time of Pliny the Magi taught that storms could be avertefl by burning agates. The amethyst often proves a cure for intoxication, while the sapphire and emerald are used to strengthen the sight. A curious belief that attaches to the turquoise and is found in the writings of Van Helmont is that if the wearer of this jewel should fall from any height it would attract the force of the fall to itself, and even though it crack the stone the wearer would be uninjured; The diamond is Held In Oflifth«« Be»lnnlB(s '.

' The war office is full of entertaining incidents. Last April that buoyant, rough-riding, blood-loving statesman, soldier and dilettante, Theodore Roose 1 - velt, was busy trying to get authorization for raising the command of whfch he is now the head. He was assistant secretary of the navy, and did not send his card In to hia fellow-officeholders when he called on them. One day he broke in on Gen. Ltulington's reposo. Ludlngton was and IB the head of the quartermaster's department, and is as order-loving a soul as any old lady in the world. To him came the enthusiastic. Roosevelt. "I want a requisition for 1,000 horses at once, and authority to buy 'em where they can be found," said the impetuous Theodore. "We shall have to proceed according to the regulations and advertise for the" horses," replied Ludlngton. "But we are enlisting these men in every state of the Union," urged Roosevelt, "and we want them to take their horses with them where they are enlisted." "Then," said Ludington, "we shall have to advertise for them where they are bought." "But it will take ninety days and cost $1,000,000," argued Roosevelt. "We must conform to the regulations," Insisted Ludlngton. "Damn thn regulations!" shouted Roosevelt. "You people in here are tied hand anil foot with your cursed red tape." Mr. Secretary," cried Lmlington, who had become rather warm himself, "do not curse the regulations, sir; do not curse the regulations. They are not. red tape. They are reasonable provisions, and this department Worked under them like clockwork, sir, for 25 years, till this cursed war came along and upset everything."—New Time. by druggUtg.

It also has electric properties and attracts to itself small particles o£ gold. Among the Malays it is firmly believed that a draught from a glass of water in which the diamond of tho rajah of Matra had been placed would cure all ills. The stones used Uy Mme. Honouix are kept in an elaborately Arranged case, fron: which her patient selects the quality of the jewel after the kind necessary to the cure has been decided upon Golden braziers are used to burn the stone when it is necessary that the patient inhale the fumes.

Many people suppose that the use of mahogany for tho manufacture of furniture is very nncinnt. As a matter of fact, the. first record we have oC this rare wood is in :I095, when Sir Walter Raleigh repaired one of hla ships with it in the port of Trinidad. The next wu hear of mahogany is many years later, when an lOngliwlmian who was Sidling from one of the West Indies used quite a lot of wlmt appeared to him rough lumber for ballast, and when he arrived in Eangland and found his brother building a house he gave this apparently ill-featured timber to him for his bouse. When his brother turned the lumber over to his carpenters, they refused to use it, because it was so hard that it spoiled their tools; so its use for building that house was abandoned. Ills wife, however, a short time after, gave some of this wood to her cabinetmaker in order to, have him make for her i\ candle box. Ho, too, complained o'f the hardness of the wood and its effect upon his tools. The candle box was finished at last, however, and it was so handsome, having taken on such a beautiful polish, that this box became quite n curiosity among the society people of that day; so much so that tho lady's husband had the same cabinetmaker make him a bureau of the same wood. The bureau was so unusually beautiful that the cabinetmaker went regularly, into the business of manufacturing bureaus, and made not only a reputation, but a large fortune! out of tho business.—Atlanta Constitution. 1 I''ranro LcudH In Good Roads. There are, it. is estimated, 300,000 miles of highway roads in the United States, about 20 per cent of the' roads of all the world. Great Britain has 120,000 miles of highways and these are some of the best in the world. Germany has 275,000 miles of roads, and some of them are as poor as the roadways of a great country can be. France, which has taken- an enlightened view of the good roads question for many years, and has spent by governmental or local authority over $1,000,000,000 on highways, has a road mileage of 330,000, more than any other country. Russia, with an enormous area, has only 70,000 miles of roadways, while Italy, a smaller country, has 55,000. On' fine stone roads one horso can haul-as much as three horses can haul over an average dirt road of this country. It is estimated that it would be necessary "to build about 1,000,000 miles of macadamized roads in tho United States in order to have as good a system of public highways as is found In several European states. At ?4,000 a mile this would involve an outlay of $4,000,000,000. Music on the llattloilcld. The first use of field music of which we have absolutely authentic information was at the battle of Bouvines, that village of French Flanders where ths French have \yon no fewer than three victories—Philip Augustus defeating Otto IV. 'Of Germany there in. 1214, Philip of Valois defeating the English there in 1340, while in 1794 the French defeated the Austrlana 'at the same place. It was at Bouvines, in 1214, that trumpets sounded the signal for the victorious French charge, the first authentic instance of a command given by a trumpet call. A Thoughtful Flunce.
