Eating same kind of Bread Cause of Dyspepsia and Indigestion.

"I have a theory about dyspepsia and indigestion," said the head waiter in a French restaurant, "that I think ought to be considered by sufferers from stomach complaints. I believe that much of this class of trouble is due to people's persistency in eating the same kind of bread for weeks, months and sometimes years, without a change.

"Now, nobody does that with any other kind of food; meat, for instance, or vegetables, or fruit or other dessert. Yet the average man will eat the same kind of bread twice or even three times a day and think himself wise. The stomach, unless it is of extraordinary constitution, will naturally get tired of this monotony and refuse properly to digest this eternal bread. Then the bread eater knows he has dyspepsia and starts on a course of dieting - generally sticking religiously to the same old bread - that most often leaves him in worse plight than ever.

There are many varieties of bread - corn, rye, whole wheat, graham, Boston brown, aerated, barley, Vienna and French bread. All of these differ in the making and the material, and if the average man would only take a turn at some of them for a change from his regular loaf he would find himself healthier and happier." - New York Sun.

REALLY NEW GOLF STORY. Caddie's Loss of Temper Excusable Under the Circumstances.

A very pompous, very self-sufficient and very bad golfer was once playing over an Irish course. He had as his caddie a battered old Irish peasant, with a very knowing twinkle in the corner of his eye. After each stroke - and each stroke was cruel hard on the green turf of Ould Oireland - the vain-glorious one said to his caddie in the most lordly fashion, "Replace the turf, caddie!" Quietly and patiently the caddie went through the performance, thinking volumes and saying nothing at all until the eighteenth was reached. Then, as the last duffed shot stumbled its way to the putting green, and "Replace the turf, caddie!" rang in his ears for the last time, he turned with a look of ineffable scorn upon his august employer and said, "Arrah, is it replacing the turf you'll be bidding me do? By the holy fly, it'll be returfing the place we'll be all doing when you're gone!" - "The King"

Shrewd Device of Smuggler.

A clever smuggler made a point of buying a lot of champagne during the voyage and for souvenirs used to keep all the corks. These he secretly cut and managed to stow from one to three diamonds in each. On the day of their arrival in port, pretending to have become drunk, he afforded the male passengers, and even some of the customs officials themselves with much amusement by pelting a rather green-looking boatman alongside with them. Though he never missed his aim, the boatman took it in good part, so the passenger afterward threw him half a dollar. The man then pulled away for the shore and the trick had been carried through successfully.

Tuberculosis in Cattle

During the ten days farmers' course at the state university, Feb. 6 - 16, there will be slaughtered at the college of agriculture a herd of cattle which have been found to be tuberculous on the basis of the tuberculosis test. These post mortem examinations, which will probably take place Feb. 10, will give an opportunity for farmers to see the efficacy of this test in diagnosing the presence of this cattle scourge. The widespread distribution of this disease in Wisconsin and especially its insidious development, which permits of its establishing itself without the owner being aware of the fact, makes this question of bovine tuberculosis of special importance to the stock interests of Wisconsin.


The friends of Ray Stevens, "Buster" Stevens, as he is better remembered by them, will be glad to learn that his wife, who was obliged to undergo a serious operation in the hospital several weeks ago, is slowly gaining and was able to be out doors for a short time last Sunday. Ray works for Earle Brothers, commission merchants of Chicago, with which firm he has been employed since he left the business college some five years ago.
