PEOPLE OF THE DAY
Mieeiaelppi'a New Senator.
By defeating Governor Vsrdaman at
the recent, primary elections In Mis
sissippi John Sharp Williams, l>cmo
eratic Door leader in the house, be
comes the nominee of his party for the
senators hip. As Mississippi la safely
Democratic Mr. Williams Is sure of
election if he lives lons enough. As
the term of Senator McLaurin doss
»ot expire till lIUI the representative
has ample time In Which to prepare
for the toga.
The prospective senator, however, is
well equipped to take the job at a
moment's notice, having spent four
teen years In the lower house. Four
years ago he was- choeeu floor leader
of the minority and will doubtless re

morous tale. At tbe end of one of his
recent debates with Governor Varda

"There is a decent mid noble pride,"
said Mr. Williams, "and there is a
pride 4hat is mean and ludicrous. An
aged cltisen of Yasoo tells of sn old
woman whose pride was of the latter
"This old woman lived iu Yorkshire.
There waa a funeral one day In the

but a neighbor of hers was there.
That night she called on the neighbor

" 'Yes, I wor,' Nancy replied.
" 'What kind of a funeral wor It?'
" 'Why, it wor a wery mean sffair,'
she said. 'There wor nobbut a few

" 'Ah,' said the other old woman,
'them's the sort of wsys I don't hold

I've burled 'em all with 'am.'"

Rear Admiral Kobley D. Kvuns, pop
ularly known as "Fighting Bob," will
probably command the big fleet of
warships soon to lie sent to gusrd
Uncle Ham's Interests in the i'aclflc
ocean. Recently Admiral Kvsns was
at the Jamestown exposition with s
squadron in honor of the visit of
Crown Prince Wllhelm of Sweden.
While there, so the story goes, he was
outwitted by one of his own men.
Among the jsckies "Fighting Bob" is
regsrded aa a martinet in the matter
of neatness of apparel; otherwise the
Incident would not have happened.
A number of tbe Jsckies were given
shore leave, and Admiral Bob stood

man in tbe second line here," said tbe
admiral to an officer. "Is that the
only pair of trousers you have?" asked
Bob as tbe ttailor approached. "It Is,
sir," said tbe man, saluting. "Go down
below and tell the commissary stew
ard to give you a new pair and don't
let me see you report for shore leave
with torn trousers again." The trou

The Hot Watsr Bag.
Boiling water should never be put In
to a rubber bag. Do not much more
than half All the bag. then place It In
the lap before putting In tbe stopper
and csrefully press out the steam.
This makes tbe bag softer, aa It 1s
relieved of tbe (tnessur* tbe steam
makes If left In It
After using tbe bag drain out the
water, let It hang bottom side up for a
little while, then take It down and
with the mouth blow a little air Into
It, just enough to keep the insldes
from coming together, as it will often
do if there Is no sir In It, In which case
the bag Is almost sure to be ruined in
pulilug It spart
If tbe bag ever should stlrK put Into
It some hot wster with s few drops of
ammonia, let It remain a few minutes,
then with s thin, dull edged stick try
to separate the inside carefully.
Care af the Teeth.
In no way is more Injury done to
teeth than by tbe natural acids In
They act quickly on tbe enamel,
bringing esvlties aa well as yellow
I.imewater, a agent, should
be used to rime the mouth several
times a day, and bicarbonate of soda
is recommended even more highly for
the ssme pirpose.
A toothbrush should always be
curved, at least a little, that the length
of the center bristles sbsll not inter
fere with the end.
Unless those st the tip are longer
than any other part no benefit Is de
rived of Its use. A flat brush Is good
for the frout teeth, aud thst is all.
Care of Parquet Floors.
A few hints ss to the care of parquet
floors may lie useful Grease or oil of
any sort should never lie used, as it
penetrates the wood little by little until
after a few applications It Is streaked
with stains. When the surface gets at
all scrstched wax ef tbe consistency of
Isrd should lie used, applied with a soft
woolen rsg. The dust should flrat be
thoroughly swept off the floor, and
when It Is quite clean it should be pol
ished with the wax; otherwise the dust
sud dirt will be rubbed lu by the wax
Instead of removed.
Aids the Seamstress.
A very simple aud practical aid to
the dressmaker Is a device called a
"work holder," the Invention of an In
diana woman. It wus designed espe
cially to ssslst the sewer In basting
and similar work. As shown In the
Illustration, It consists of a holder,
which can be Instantly clamped to the
work table or other nearby object. At
the top of tbe clamp Is a large needle,
"U - r ' : : -

which Is supported rigidly upright lu
the bolder. In use one end of the piece
of goods to be sewed Is slipped on the
needle and the gooda stretched with
the left baud. The operutor is thus
alilo to sew freely and quickly with
the right hand. As one part of the
piece of goods Is sewed It Is slipped
off the needle and advanced to the next
Hair Wash and Tonio.
For the wash cuf a large, Juicy lem
on lu halves. Dip tbe head In a large
bowl of tepid water, while the lemon
Is rubbed over tbe scam and among the
roots of tbe batr. Soak and rub the
hulr thoroughly, then rinse well lu wa
ter of the same temperature. Dry at
once with vigorous rubbing, and there
will be no danger of taking cold. No
soap Is required. The add of the lem
on removes dust and grease, leaving
tbe hair pliable and gloasy.
The simplest and best way to clean
mahogany la to take warm water and
soft cloth, dampen the cloth well and
rub on a white soap, making a good
lather. This rub freely over tbe article
to be cleaned sud at once wipe off and
dry with soft cloth. The result Is su

For Colds and Hoarseneee.
For colds and hoarseness lemons are
an old and approved remedy. For a
cold tbe lemon should be baked whole
until thoroughly tender, then eaten hot
with loaf sugar to sweeten Just before
retiring. For hoarseness the juice of a
lemon mixed with the stiffly beaten
white of egg and loaf sugar or honey
to sweeten Is most efficacious.
Odds and Ends ef Soap.
A good use for tbe blta of soap that
accumulate on toilet stands Is to dry
them out thoroughly by placing on tins
In the warming oven and then pound

bran or oatmeal and aewed Into little

The Greeks began their year in
September. Our Labor Day was
their New-Year's Day. They did
this because their families spent
the summer at the seashore at con
siderable exj>en.se. While the men
played poker at home at even more
expeuse. This left the Greeks
badly in the hole, and the only way
they could get out was to have the
new year begin September ist and
swear off drinking and smoking at
that time. This enabled them to
save iu September what we save in
January, and was a much better
plan than ours.
