Hall's Catarrh Medicine
Those who are in a “run-down” condi
tion will notice that Catarrh bothers them
much more than when they are in good
health. This fact proves that while
Catarrh is a local disease, it is greatly
influenced by constitutional conditions.

THE SUN’S RADIUM.
HE BELIEVES IN GOD.
OUR GUNS STAY DOWN.
Scientists studied the earth’s
magnetic currents, as affected by
the eclipse. Every ship’s captain
noticed that the eclipse had an ef
fect on the compass. Science does
not know why.
Possibly some scientist got from
this eclipse the most important in
formation of all, which has to do
with the amount of radium in the
The sun’s length of life and the
lives of this and other planets de

might be cut down to a few mil

Bishop the Right Rev. William
Montgomery Brown, of Cleveland,
is put out of the church. Accused
of being unorthodox, he protested,
“I believe in God.” But that was
not enough, and he is out.
Bishop Brown’s exact description
of God in which he believes would
be interesting. One small boy,
asked to describe God, replied in
stantly. He’s got a long white
beard, and high-top boots. That
was perfectly respectful. It de
scribed the boy’s highest ideal.
Many human beings imagine a
God, somewhat as that little boy
imagined him, with a beard that
might need trimming, boots to be
mended, etc. What is the Right
Reverend Bishop’s idea of a Su
preme Being managing such a uni
verse as this, with time and space
unlimited, millions of suns and
planets, constant change every
where, with everything whirling
and flying around and nowhere any
comfortable stability ?
Can any human mind really have
any but a childish conception of
such a being?
Our Navy heads might give the
country information on a state
ment recently published by English
papers. The British have arranged
their ships so that they can take
in water ballast on one side or the
other, and thus, by making the
ship tip over, raise the guns to the
desired elevation and increase their
range without actually changing
the mechanical adjustment of the
That seems to be highly in

it in this country because probably
somebody in Europe would object.
A great surety company adver

It is proposed to create an “air
port” for New York by roofing over
the yards of Pennsylvania Rail
road. Temporary landing and
leaving places for fliers might
thus be provider! in many cities.
That ought to be done. Automo
bile roads, without grade crossings,
could also easily be provided, mak
ing a roadway above railroad
tracks running out through city
suburbs. Railroads should be prop
erly compensated, of course.
Makeshift airports will soon be
outgrown, however. Before you
die, in every big city, the week end
will see thousands of flying “club
cars,” each with its load of passen
gers. flying ofif to mountains, or
seaside, in Summer; to Florida,
California, etc., in Winter.
The Philadelphia Mint begins
coining 5,000,000 half-dollar coins
to commemorate the courage of
General Robert E. Lee, Stonewall
Jackson and others, and the carving
of the great memorial on Stone
Mountain, near Atlanta.
These coins have a meaning even
more important than their meaning
as memorials of courage and ar
tistic enterprise. They establish
even more firmly the fact that the
Civil War belongs to an age that
is past. And they will he prized
in the North even more highly
than in the South.
