*b 4» I 4» 4» Klephants Becoming Scarce. It is no secret to those concerned in Oriental trade that elephants are becom­ ing scarce but not many people in Eng­ land know what has been the increase in price. According to our consul in 'hicnginai. the price in northern Siam has gone up threefold. In that country the elephant: Ts essential to drag timber from tlie forests, and while the cost of .•ininiul iwnvor luis increased to such an extent, manual labor has also become more «:pc.i^ive, and, like elephantine la­ bor, is becoming exceedingly difficult to obtain.- London Globe. hat Io the Children Drink Don give them tea or coffee. Have you tried the new food drink called GRAIN-O? It is delicious and nourish­ ing, and takes the place of coffee.

-•1~i'-" i(8* 1 HE VIRGINIA ENTERPRISE VIRGINIA, MINN. W: .. HANNAFORD, Publisher. Falling aeronauts have come to be as oonnnon an aerial spectacle as descend­ ing meteors. Sir Thomas Lipton's success with Oc­ tober iork will enable him to pick up some of the money he dropped here last year in October yachting. Sir Thomas Upton's challenge for the America cup is made in time to suggest that lie is jvilling to "blow in" some of the money he has just made on pork. The failure of the Peary relief steamer Windward to return from the north makes an opening for another Arctic leader, to head a second relief expedition next year. The campaign of the pigskin starts with a whirl that will not subside until Thanksgiving, which has an added im­ port for American parents ever since the present rough-and-tumble game was in­ vented. The swiety which a La Crosse man is organizing, whose members are to give away all their money over $100,000. will be just as likely as other organizations to come to...

Most of the accidents from firearms are due to the carelessness of the men handling them, and if the aggregate of accidents of late years is smaller it is due entirely to the modern improvements made upon guns, rendering them less dangerous to the careless or inexperienced hunter. Ihe hammerless gun with a safety lock has prevented innumerable accidents, as they can be handled without much danger, but the average amateur sportsman is not usually ...

TREASURES OF THE SEA. British Fishermen' Make Valuable Hauls from Wrecked Vessels* There still exists on our coasts a class of men known as "hovellers," or swip ers—a modernized survival of the old wrecker fraternity—that earns a liveli­ hood by the recovery of wreckage. Dur­ ing the summer months of last year up­ ward of 140 tons of anchors and chains were dragged from the bed of the sea in the Downs and Yarmouth roads alono. The hardy fishermen of the North sea frequently make valuable hauls in the shape of derelict or distressed vessels, or of sunken goods that become entangled in their fishing gear. A few months ago a large vessel, car­ rying a general cargo, grounded and be­ came waterlogged on a sandbank off the east coast. In a few hours a host of fishing boats of various nationalities gathered, yulfrurelike, from a previously deserted sea. Feeling ran so high over the looting that followed that a gunboat had to be dispatched to preserve order. Tons of fish were returned to t...

C., says: Dear Sir—At the suggestion of a friend I was advised to use Peruna for catarrh, and after using one bottle I began to feel better in every way. It helped me in many re­ spects. I was troubled with colds, coughs, sore throat, etc., but as soou ns I had taken your medicine 1 began to improve and soon got well. I take pleasure in recommending your great remedy to all who are afflicted with catarrh.—M. H. McCord. Thousands of cases of chronic catarrh have been cured by Peruna during the past winter. There are no successful substitutes for this remedy. Send to Dr. Hartman, Co­ lumbus. Qh4o. for a free catarrh book. Idea for a Village Reformer.

LONG DRIVE ON AUTO. TO CHICAGO FROM ST. LOUIS IN THIRTY-SIX HOURS. Roads Were Rough and Routes Were Strange—Mud, Sand, and Many Turns Retarded Speed of Horseless Carriage —One Tire Punctured. Jolin L. French, of St. Louis, is the first man to make a trip from St. Louis to Chicago on an automobile. He made the distance of 450 miles in thirty-six hours, notwithstanding the fact that he encountered bad roads and was fre­ quently retarded by following wrong directions. He traveled without a chart and did not try to choose the most direct route. He made the journey to prove that the horseless carriage could be used satisfactorily on the dirt roads of the country, and that it could be de­ pended on to climb hills and to wheel through deep mud. The automobile in which the long drive was made is of phaeton pattern and weighs 1,000 pounds. It consumed eighteen gallons of gasoline at a cost of V, fCWARD5VIUc S?
