and controls every part ol the body, strengthens the nerves, makes the
muscles elastic and supple, the bones strong and the flesh firm; but when
. this life fluid is polluted or poisoned and loses its nutritive, health sustain
ing elements, then there is a rapid decline of the vital powers, resulting
in prenyture old age and disease. Any derangement of the blood quickly
shows itself in an nicer, sore, wart, tumor or some other troublesome
growth upon the body, and rheumatic and neuralgic pains become almost
constant, accompanied with poor digestion and cold extremities.

STARS THAT COME AND GO
A Myilerr' Wfclrk Sarnre Ofewrra
tmrr Chert ear rmih Slvc4.
One of the great scientific mysteries
for a long time was the apparent dis
appearance and reappearance from
time to time of certain little stars little
to the unaided human eye at least The
solution of this pusr.le is an Interesting
example ofrbat photography and the-j
adaptation or specrroscopy to me uses
fcf what Is called astrophysics have ac
complished for astronomy In the last
half century. .
Astronomers had for centuries ob
served bright stars which seemed to
"go out" suddenly and from -no evident
cause; then after a time bright stars
reappeared in the same relative posi
tions in the sky. The Inference was
naturally that something dimmed the
brilliancy of these bodies temporarily,
and they were therefore called "varia
bles." By comparing the photographic
plates of the same region In the great
collection at the Harvard observatory
In Cambridge It was possible to find
Just how often a variable star appear
ed, bow loug it was visible before it
vanished and bow its surroundings
changed in the meantime. .
When spectroscopy was added to the
astronomer's means of investigation
and by its agency the individual chem
ical characteristics ot the' different
heavenly bodies wero recorded, Includ
ing some bodies which are Invisible
from the earth even with the aid of a
telescope, there came the discovery
that the variables were really twin
stars revolving about each other, so
that one sometimes eclipsed the other,
and a singlo point of light appeared
where the two bad been seen before.
More curious still, however, and more
important to the astronomer was the
revelation that in many cases one of
the twins was nonlumlnous, tbe result
being that when it came between Its
brother star and the earth a bright
spot seemed to disappear from the sky
altogether for the time being.
The center of stellar photography in
this country and, Indeed, in the world
Is the Hnrvurd observatory, and there
pictures of the heavens have been tak
en systematically night by night for
nearly twenty years until now there
arc more than 115,000 negatives filed
nwny nnd catalogued so as to form a
kind of library which contains a com
plete history of the celestial bodies
from the time the work began, the only
history of its kind In existence. With
the Harvard photographs nt hand it is
of course :t simple mutter to calculate
the "pcriodi" or variable stars that If
to say, the intervals between their ap
pearances in the sky. Nearly all of
the newly discovered stars of tbe hut
few years have been found iu the-mi-uute
scrutiny to which each of the
negatives Is subjected at the observa
tory. Too Good.

ROLLING AN UMBRELLA.
the Proper War I Twist HIM
anil Stick Together.
"Why is it," asked an Inquisitive cus
tomer in a downtown umbrella store,
"that one can never roll up an umbrella
as compactly and neatly as it is rolled
when he buys it?" .- ;
"You can if you only know how,"
aid the saleflnan, "but If everybody
knew bow it would mean less business
for us. The umbrellas would hist lon
ger, and there would be a lot less work
for the repairers. - ;
"Perhaps I shouldn't tell you how,"
the clerk continued, "but it's so- simple
you should know anyhow. If you have
noticed, nearly everybody who rolls up
an umbrella takes hold. of it by the
handle and keeps twisting the stick
with one hand while be folds and roll
with the other band.
"Now, that's Just where the mistake
comes in. Instead of twisting with the
handle he should take hold of It Just
above the points of the cover ribs.
These points naturally He ' evenly
around the stick. Keep hold of these,
pressing them tightly against the stick,
and then roll up the cover. Holding
the ribs prevents them from getting
twisted out of place or bending out ot
shape. Then the silk is bound to fold
evenly and roll smooth and tight ,-
t'Roll your umbrella this way, and
until it Is old enough to get rusty look
ing It will look as If It had Just come
from the shop." New York Herald. ?
The Prevtoiie Qaeattoa. '
Old Senator Nesmlth of Oregon, one
ot tho first settlers, of. the state, used
to tell this story i At the time when
Oregon was admitted as a state and
the first legislature of tbe state met
Nesmlth, who was a. member, possess
ed himself of a copy of a book on par
liamentary procedure. " This '" work,
Which was at the time probably the
only one of its sort- west of the Mis
sissippi, he studied diligently and by
the time of tbe first session was well
up In the rules of 'debate. , f ,
At the first meeting of the new tes
lslature a motion was Introduced and
speedily carried, but on the second
measure a dispute arose, and for three
days the state legislators wrangled
and debated..::.'.,'.-.." -.rivi ;-, V'i '""
Finally, on the third day, Nesmlth,
who had watched . the proceeding
without even opening his mouth, de
cided It was time to use a piece of his
parliamentary procedure, bo " he rose
and moved the ''previous question."
There was a moment ot silence fol
lowing this motion, and then amid
shout of derision the speaker cried:
"Sit down, you fool! We passed the
previous question three days ago!"
Where English CUbs Differ. 1
! A point which strikes American vis
itors to London about our English clubs
is -the social aspect ot them and the al
most complete absence of the business
side. At the Manhattan or the Knick
erbocker, on the other hand, the bust
nesa side prevails. The majority of
members do not drop in merely to read
the papers, b&nr tho latest story and
pjay billiards, as over here;- They go
In most cases to meet a man' about "f
deal,'' to talk over the business of the'
day and discuss the business of the
morrow or to read up the finance of the
papers.' . The result is that when an
American becomes a member of an
English club he hardly ever uses It be
cause its ways do not appeal to him.
He would say that there was nothing
going on. London Tatler. 1 . " i
