000,000 square miles, yet its coast line, BTcn including that of the Indian T h e C oast l i l a e o f th e P a e ifle. Although the Pacific covei's more than half the surface of the globe and has an area estimated roughly at 90,- ocean, is hut 47,000 miles, or about 8,000 miles less than that of the At­ lantic. The shores of the Atlantic are yery deeply indented by large seas, of •which the Baltic and Mediterranean are the most remarkable. Besides these, the greatest lateral seas and gulfs in the Atlantic are the gulf of Mexico, Caribbean sea, Hudson bay and the bay ot Biscay. If we take from the Pacific the Red sea, Arabian sea and hay of Bengal, which are part of the Indian ocean, we leave it with a remarkably straight coast line, with the exception of a few deep indenta­ tions on the coast of Asia. It is owing to a free impenetration of land and water and consequent ease of communication between one country and another that the most civilized na­ tions of the world, with few excep­ tions, have lived and now live on the shores of the north Atlantic and its lateral seas. h . Bo1> Toomljs’ W ay. General Robert Toombs was as ifla- pulsiTe as he was courageous. Once, in the midst of a hot political campaign, a stump orator said something about the general’s arrest by Robert E. Bee for Insubordination, frightfully distorting the Incident. Toombs w^ote one of the hottest letters of his life and was about to seal it when a friend entered his of­ fice and,, seeing, him much agitated, in­ quired the cause. The letter was hand­ ed to him to read, and when he had finished it he remarked, “You don’t in­ tend to send that to him?” “I do,” said Toombs, “Better wait till tomorrow and think it over, general.” “Never, sir! I have known him to be a liar, a blackguard and a thief all his life, but never before had cause to tell him so. The opportunity is now offered, and I wouldn’t miss it for the senatorship. Walt till tomorrow? Think it over? That is to throw away the chance of a lifetime. Strike -while the iron is hot, sir! Bob Toombs is the iron! Bob Toombs is hot! Toombs will strike!”— New York Press.

They are not to your liking perhaps—you may call them trouble and bad luck—but just shut your teeth together, shut your eyes, too, if necessary, and hold yonr breath. Then get a good grip on the situation, and then work with it.

A Singrolar Creatnre. One of the most singular looking crea­ tures tbat ever walked the earth or “swam the waters under the earth” is the world famous man faced crab of Japan. Its body is hardly an inch In length, yet the head is fitted with a face which is the exact counterpart of a Chinese cooly—a veritable missing link, with eyes, nose and mouth all clearly defined. This curious and un­ canny creature, besides the great like­ ness it bears to a human being in the face, is provided with two legs, which seem to grow from the top of its head and hang down over the side of its,^ Brides \Wlio Percli In Trees. Among the Lolos of western China it Is customary for the bride on the wed­ ding morning to perch herself on .the highest branch of a large tree while the elder female ’ members of her family cluster on the lower limbs armed with sticks. When all are duly stationed the bridegroom clambers up tbe tree, assailed on all sides by blows, pushes and pinches from the dowagers, and it Is not until he has broken through their fence and captured the bride tbat he is allowed to carry her off. H e r Soi-ro-vr. One of the closest friends of Princess Mathilda was Count Benedettl, the French ambassador whom the king of Prussia was said to have insulted at Ems. Her words on hearing of his death, after he had been her intimate counselor for moi-e than forty years, are worth recalling. “Alas,” she said, “now there is no one left who will dare to contradict me.” site UndLerstood.

He—If I were suddenly to lose all my money would you marry me just the same? She—Not quite the same, dear.

PEXALL MUCU-TONE A W o n d e r ful Lafe-Giving Elbdr T h a t M a k es T h e S ick W e ll and T h e W e a k S tron g Primarily Rexall Mucu-Tone is a cure for all catarrhal con­ ditions— In addition to this, is one of the most powerful nutritive tonics and flesh builders known to the medical world.^ “ But,” you say, “ I haven’t catarrh. Catarrh is a disease of the nose and throat.” There is where you are wrong. Catarrh is a term whicih describes a congested and inflamed condi­ tion of the mucous membranes, and while it is commonly known as a disease of the head and throat, this in fact is the least com m o n of all its phases. Every time you catch cold you have catarrh, for a cold con­ gests some portion of these membranes. You may say yon have “ a cold in the head ” or that your cold *' settled in your back” or “ on your lungs.” In reality jt is catarrh—catarrh of the lungs, stomach, liver, kidneys, bladder or whatever organ may be affected. But there is a still more com­ mon form of catarrh. Have you ever thought how this life of all -work and no play was breaking you down ? Do you not realize that even now you are paying the penalty of starved nature? Remember that for years you have lived a confined life. You have been^ denied the crisp, life-giving air\ of the country and the outdoor exercise which Nature intended. Instead of this you have bent over your desk, you have strug­ gled with your house work, you have breathed foul, vitiated air. And because of this, the ma­ chinery of life has grown rusty and the arteries thirst for new blood. The membranes of your body are clogged and para­ lyzed. They have lost the functional pow’er which your wellbeing demands. * And so you are weak ahd tired, and nervous and worn out. You have no strength, no­ energy, no life. You have no interest, no ambition, no desire to get out of the rut. You can­ not concentrate your thoughts without great effort. Whatever you do exhausts you. You go to bed feeling like an old, old man—or woman—^and get up unrested. You have no appe­ tite and what you do eat fails to give you strength. If you are a woman you suffer the weakness peculiar to your sex; your face is wan and haggard and' sometimes you feel as if your back would break. This is catarrh—^the same dis­ ease which in an acute form affects the nose and throat; the same disease which as a woman’s disorder of the pelvic organism is known by half a dozen dif- rerent names. This iswhyne;‘rly everybody in the world will be the better and stronger, and healthier and happier for the discovery of Rexall Mucu-Tone—a remedy which is not a mere medicine in the ordinarily accepted sense but a life-giving elixir which lifts Nature out of the quagmire in which your mode of life has plunged her and sets her sol­ idly upon her feet. Three weeks of Mucu-Tone will do more for you than three months of fresh air and country fare. W o rking through t h e starved bloodvessels, it drives out the catarrhal poison, stim u lates the muco-cells into th e active ex­ ercise of their functions, fills the arteries with rich, red blood, tones up the stomach, restores the appetite and builds up the body. There is no slow, uphill work about its largy and pain will slip away and in their place will come the fresh, buoyant vigor and povrer of application of the long ago. Don’t be skeptical; don’t cheat yourself. But give Rexall Mucu-Tone a trial ■ —just one trial. If you don't feel j better immediately you can stop taking it and we will give you back you? money.
