Henry found themselves able to realize their cherish ed dream, a beautiful new hmne. So «n Thursday. July l»th, work wasstart- ed in oharfCf of Thomas Farden of ( )%&- ensburg assisted by (Charles Thorn hill of Hsuveltou. The uew house is on the same com mauding eminence on the Van RenHse laer road where three generation!* of Henrys have had their abode, and is a little nearer the highway than the old house. The style is colonial, there br- ing large dormer windows iu the attic, where the hip roof is covered with stained shingles.

The main part of the house is finished in quartered oak. the stairway showing a very pretty bit of grill work. Upstairs are live large bed- SOOUM most of them with two windows. One especially attractive feature JH the grade door (ground level) leading from outdoors to a landing on the cellar Htaiw All in all, the house 1H one of the finest iu Lisbon and is a just source of pride to ity owners. Mr. and Mrs. Henry have worked hard to provide for it and Reserve to live long to enjoy it, emperdnce m J\OTe5 s AS HEALTH OFFICERS SEE IT. Dr. Haven Eniersun, health commis- sioner of New York csity: \It is, as I conceive It, the duty of departments of health to leach, tonch, teach, persuade, demonstrate, exh'ibit, exhort, prove iliat alcohol as a bever- age m in patent medicines is n men- ace to personal and community health, is a common source of sickness and death, is blocking the path of preven- tive medicine and is a menace to the physical and social development of the nation.\ Health Commisisoner Ford of Cleve- land, G.: \Teaching the effects of alcohol is a public health function. There is nothing more '' iportant than this ques- tion.\ I>r. J. N. Hurty, secretary Indiana state board of health: \We 3mow that alcoholic liquor is a vile and evil thing- It is a horrible thing from an economic and social point of view; It is always and ev- erywhere injurious from the physical standpoint. Every drop is a poison. Its use is always injurious, and if 1 bad the power 1 would close every public saloon as a public dope shop.\ Dr. John Dill Robertson, health commissioner of Chicago: \In the city of Chicago, where the death rate is approximately 100 a day, it is safe to say that at least 25 per cent of these deaths are caused direct- ly or indirectly by alcohol. Alcohol produces acute inflammation of the stomach, hemorrhage of the pancreas, heart disease, cancer Of the stomach, Bright's disease, fatty liver, hardened liver, inflammation of the nerves, epi- lepsy, hardening of the arteries and a multitude of other afflictions of the body. Those are known medical facts. It is not only a causative factor in the diseases and afflictions mentioned, but it invades the mental man and pro- duces insanity.\ The New Jersey Health Officers' as- sociation passed a resolution recom- mending that campaigns of publicity i be inaugurated by the state and local ' departments of health for the purpose of informing the public of the dangers attending the use of alcoholic bever- ages. The Vermont state hoard of health is planning an anti-alcohol crusade similar to that of New York city. Other city and state health boards are also Incorporating anti-alcohol work as a regular part of health de- partment programs. Pitching a Camp Tent. The spot where your tent is to stand should be open. Have it as close to the woods as you wish, but so that the sun will shine on your tent. Sunlight is the healthiest thing in the world. It is the best disinfectant. If you pitch your tent under the thick trees there will always be an unhealthy dampness, and mosquitoes will flock in. Then, too, in t'hunderstonns there is less dan- ger in the open than under trees. The all important reason, however, for pitching your tent in the open is the matter of health. Do not put up the tent in a hollow. Water will lodge under it with the first shower. Set it on a little knoll. All this holds good, whether you use an' A tent, wall tent, lean to or any other sort of shelter. Onca the tent is up in place dig a drain around it exactly un- der the edge of the canvas, so that all the water will run off the tent into this drain and lie carried away. — Peter Johnson in St. Nicholas. Persian Words Naturalized. : Regarding the rersian language, we I all have a few words from that source l in our vocabularies, although we may j not be aware of our indebtedness. I There are about a dozen words in the 1 English dictionary which trace to Per- ! sia, the most common beinp; perhaps \orange\ (although this was thought | by some to IN? derived from the Latin j \aurum\—gold i. \Sash meaning \a • ribbon or band (the \sash\ of a win-. j dow is the Latin \capsa\j, \shawl\ and \taffeta\ are other Persian words i which have become thoroughly ac- j climatized, as have \chess \caravan I \lilac.\ \dervish\ and \lac while ! \emerald\ and \indigo \azure [ \bazaar \jackal\ \musk \para- ! dise\ and \scimitar\ have also been ! traced to the same source. — London I Opinion. I Baring the Feet at Worship. In India Hindus and Mussulmans alike wear both sandals and shoes (slip- : pers) and the latter boots also, but the Invariable rule is to remove them after entering a private house just when stepping on to the mat or carpet on which the visitor takes his seat. They must be cast off, the right boot or shoe first, before the worshiper enters a temple or mosque, and it is still re- garded as an absolute profanation to attempt to enter either fully shod. But the domestic habit arose out of its ob- vious propriety, and the religious rit- ual of \the shoes of the faithful,\ now and for centuries past observed throughout Islam, can be demonstrat- ed to hove been dictated by, if indeed it be not derived directly from, the uni- versal social etiquette of the east. DOES IT? \Beer promofi-s efficiency,\ says the advertisement of a certain brewing I company. Someone replies as fol- ; lows: j \If you were about to have a dan- j genius surgical operation performed, | would you prefer to have the suigeon j lake a few glasses of beer just before j the operation, to 'promote efficiency?' i \If you were about to take a trip on I a railroad, would you prefer to have, the engineer and the telegraph opera- i tors- and the switchmen along the line take a few beers while you were on your way, to 'promote efficiency?' \If you. are business man, do you prefer to have your employees 'rush j the can' occasionally, to ^promote effl-j cbmcy.' \Remember you can get just as drunk on beer as you can on whisky.\ As Usual. Ended were the gay days of the hon- eymoon, and the newly married couple had come back, crossing the threshold of their new home as man and wife. Just inside the doorway the man paused, drew his bride closely to him and whispered: \This is our world, darling. In it we will try to accom- plish great things.\ He was proved a true prophet by- subsequent events. Within three months they were fight- ing for the world's championship.— London Telegraph. Clever Man. With a sigh she laid down the maga- zine article upon Daniel O'Connell. \The day of great men,\ she said, \is gone forever.\ \But the day of beautiful women is not,\ he responded. .She smiled and blushed. \I was only joking,\ she explained hurriedly. BOTTLES SCARCE. A chemist in Chicago, who is ex- perimenting with a formula for mak- ing catchup and nthar preparations In tablet form, explained to a friend that this change was all \because of pro- hibition.\ \Second-hand bottles are used to a gre:.l o.;tout by manufac- turers of ina.ny of these products,\ said the chemist, \and the spread of prohibition is making It almost Im- possible to secure bottles for this pur- pose.\ NO REAL OBSTACLE.

Won't Give Them an Opening. \I don't ask people how they are any more.\ \Why not?\ \I've decided it Is better to take it for granted that they are well than to give them a chance to spend half an hour of my time telling me about their ailments.\—Detroit Free Tress. Its Vocabulary. \That parrot of theirs! Why, it rat- tles off ail of the gossip of the neigh- borhood I\ \Yes.
