PEOPLE OF THE DAY
North Carolina's Governor.
Governor U. B. (ileuu of North Caro
lina, whose clash with Judne I'rltch
arJ attracted wide utteutlou, holds
thiit state courts have rights the fed
erul judiciary should respect.
"Our courts having Jurisdiction," says
Governor Glenu, "we contend we
have a right |o proceed to fluul judg
uient aud that If aggrieved defend
ants can only appeal through our su
prctne court to the supreme court of
the L'nlted States. This Is'the orderly

method the railroads desire to oujoln
us froui taking and to take all cases
Into the federal court."
The cause of the trouble briefly
stated Is: The Southern railway, was
found guilty of violating (lie North
Carolina law forbidding, uuder SSOO
penalty, tickets to lie sold for more
than 2Vi cents a mile, was fined
SBO,OOO, aud two of Its officials were
sent to prison. They .Federal Judge

otllcluls on habeas corpus and lu
velglied against the law us "coulls

em might have to pay us uiuch us
$2,000,000 lu tines.
Governor Glenn Is a native of North
Carolina, a lawyer by profession und
fifty-three years old. For many years
he has been prominent In politics nnd
has served the state In various capucl
ties, lie was a Cleveland elector In
IHB4 flud IKii'J lje was chosen govern

A Stiff Upper Lip.
Hugo Osterhaus, the new captain of
the battleship Connecticut, praised at
a dinner lu New York the old salt of
the past. .
"He has disappeared," said ('uptuln
Osterhuus sadly. "We made fun of
him, and before our ridicule he blushed
"Such stories as we used to tell of
"One, for lustunce, dealt with uu old
shall block's beard
old fellow, 'that you never shave your
"upper lip clean?'
" 'Well, you see,' Bill answered, 'a
(nun's gotter have some place to strlki
his matches on.'"
The recent abdication of the em
peror of Korea aud the ascenslou of
the crown 'prince to the throrie have
turned the eyes of the world toward
the Hermit Kingdom. Since the close
of the Busso Japanese war the Japa
uese have liecu absolute masters of
Korea, aud the recent change of rulers
Is attributed to their Influence.
The ex emperor of the Hermit King
dom ruled over his people for
forty-four years and was Induced to
abdicate under stress of pressure. Ilia

cabinet and council of elder statesmen
convinced him libit no other course
could safely be pursued. Want of pre
caution and prudeuce in the old em
peror's policies, especially lu dlplo
ma tic affaire, whereby he was en
dangerlng the safety of the nation,
are the reasons given for his downfall.
Lieutenant General V. Ifasegawa,
commander of the Japanese troops lu
Korea, is one of the most dls
tiuguisbed officers of the mikado's
army. During the war with Bussla
be commanded the Imperial guards.
His division operated with General
Kurokl In Manchuria when the latter
rolled up Kuropatkln'a army.
FOR THE HOUSEWIFE
Whira the Breath la Offeneive.
Offensive breath Is caused some
times by decayed teeth. The ouly rem
edy Is to have them attended to -ex
tracted, If that Is necessary; tilled, If
Sometimes the cause arises In the
atoiuach. For tills the disease must be
removed. A bit of cluuaniou chewed
or of Florida orris root or calamus
often helps to make the breath sweet.
The rnustlc tree gl\es out a sort of
resinous tjuin tliat hardens the gums
and gives a delicate odor to the breath.
Ml* a few drops of spirits of cam
phor and tincture of myrrh In a glass
of water and rinse the mouth, using it
also as a gargle when some small In
disposition has affected -the breath. A
small bottle of tluctdfe of myrrh luay
Ik- kept on the aUud and ten drops
used lit a little water after the mouth
aud teeth are well cleansed. A cup of
Itfobg black coffee removes "the odor
of onions; so- wtH. a sprig of fresh
parsley, chewed, t'harcoal tablets are
good for those Willi this distressing af

Stand F,or Ftstirone.
An arrangement to pievent tiatlrons
from sliding from the Ironing Ixiurd
has been patented by a Michigan
womiui. This Iron stajid Is made of a
base of resilient wire, which can be
easily attached to any lroulng board
Secured and maintained In |M>sltlon on
the base Is u receptacle which has
I HON CANNOT BLIP,
three of the sides elevated and one
side opeu, the- open side disposed
toward the longer portion of tin- board
When the stand Is In position and a
flat I roil lu the receptacle, the tilting
of the board will uot cause the Iron
to slip from the stand, the dosed sides
effectually preventing such uecldejitH.

For Hardening the Gums.
A decoction of tannin, oak bark and
myrrh, which will cvni
pound, Is excellent for this soft, spongy
condition of the gums. Those who ure
affected In this way have to avoid too
salty foods, fruits that are very add
and also much sweets, pastries, etc
Hadlshes sometimes cause softness of
the gumn Too much fat or oils Is
•Iso bad In such cases. M
The Bun Injures th* Hair,
Those who are in the ha lilt of going
out lu their bare heads should remem
ber that nothing causes the hair

of the sun. This exposure. In addition
to streaking tlie hair, will in course of
time dry the natural oil and cause the
