Once more upon the old stile's top
I rest my eyes and look
Upon that dear, oft-dreamed-of scene
'Of meadow land and brook.
The tall fir trees about me stand
Like clustered soldiers grim,
And through their tops the evening,
Sighs a soft requiem.
Against the west the mountains rise
Enwrapped in curling mist,
While o'er their tops the sunset's flood
Pours gold and amethyst.
From out the grasses at my feet
Shrills out the cricket's cry;
All nature is a dreaming scene,
Framing the days gone by.
Those happy days of long ago,
'When life was in its spring,
With youth's glad heart as free from

As birds that soar and sing.
And dreams of that sweet bygone time
Shine through the dark'ning past
As harbor lights to sailors' eyes,
Storm-tossed, show home at last.
From all the turmoil of my life
I find a sweet release,
And to my burdened, tired heart
Comes God's most perfect peace.
Ah, weary souls, whose dearest dreams
Earth's fate and grind may blight,
Let nature's teachings point the way
If you would find true light.

The Law of Life.
M. A. R. in Times-Union & Citizen.
I stood alone in the tempest;
The storm that lashed my main,
Was wild with the crash of thunder
And the sweep of wind and rain.
I leaned o'er the side of my shallop,
And cast into the sea
The rose of a hope that had perished
When a voice came back to me:
"All things have their ending;
Night circles on toward morn;
The hands on winter's dial
Stop where buds are born:
Strength is the end of weakness,
Itest of labor and strife,
And alone through contacts and
Learn we the good in life."
I paused for a moment to ponder,
When lo! o'er the billows afar,I
Died the last roll of thunder,
And, parting the clouds asunder,
Peace smiled through the eye of a

General Wheeler, who made a re-
connaissance for a half mile beyond
the skirmish line on the morning of
the 27th ult.. finding that he was un-
able to get the desired view through
the luxuriant tropical foliage, dis-
mounted and climbed a tree. A ma-
jor general of the United States army
in the forks of a tree surveying the
Spanish outposts through his field
glasses, was a spectacle that gave
some idea of the wonderful energy ot
the dashing ex confederate cavalry
leader. This teat of agility in a man
62 years of age put to blush many a
younger officer of his own staff.

A New Mode of Travel.
Richard Dix of London has invent-
el a plan which, if carried out suc-
cessfully, will enable people to travel
in cars suspended high above the
earth, impelled by compressed air.
The coaches will be pendent frcm an
overhead iron tube through which
compressed air will be forced from a
central I;ower station. There are
openings at the ends of each section
of the tube, closed by valves. The
tube is open at its under side from
end to end, providing for the passage
of a'pair of pendentplates, from P which
the air car is suspended, and is sup-
ported 'at intervals by posts. The
plates depend from trolleys within the
tube, each carrying a piston. At
their periphery the plates are provid-
ed with an elastic "packing. which
makes an airtight joint with the
tube. The longitudinal opening in
the tube is covered by an elastic
valre, in the face of which is a strip
of steel. The pendent plates have
lateral flanges, which at the forward
end of the trolley lift the elastic valve
from its seat to open a passage for
the trolley plates. The compressed
air is pumped into receivers by pipes
and caps. A small high-pressure
piston supplies air to the back of the
piston and forces forward the car-
riage. At the junction of sections
the tube will be open to the atmos-
phere, and the impetus given to the
trolley will suffice, when desired, to
pass the carriage froin one section to
another, and the oar will go on with-
out intermii.sion.

Brave Acts ThatSaved Lives.
Youth's Companion.
On jubilee day, which comemorat-
ed the discovery of gold in Califor-
nia in 1849, a squad of Battery 1 of
the regular army was firing a salute
at Lime Point Fort near San Francis-
co. One load-the charge was fifty
pounds of powder enclosed in a wool-
en bag-did not gb off, and the offi-
cer in command ordered it to be pull-
ed out of the cannon.
The charge was withdrawn and as
it dropped to the ground,it was seen
that one corner of the woolen bag
was on fire. In an instant the pow-
der would'haye caught and the seven
men with their officer would have
been killed. Private John M. Jones
jumped toward the 'smoldering bag,
rolled it in the mud, and, with his
bare hands plastered the singed edges
with damp earth.
It was a quick, brave deed, and
had the hero been a British soldier it
would hare brought him a Victorian
cross to wear on his breast.
During the Sepoy war a vouug
captain of- artillery saw an ignited
shell fall near his battery. Instantly
lie lifted it up, carried it a distance
flung it away. Just then it burst,
shattering his left forearm.
In the Crimean wir, Capt. Peel, of
the royal navy, and son of the royal
prime minister, Sir Robert Peel, com-
manded a naval battery in front of
Sobastopool. One day a large shell.
its fuse burning, fell into the battery
near where Peel was standing. Pick-
ing it up he carried it to the rampart
and tossed it over. It exploded be-
fore it reached the ground.

vanity when he thinks it wi'l further

Maynard was not resting at all. Despite

her brief meeting with the big stranger,
that soft, sunshiny afternoon, he knew
that there was abundant reason for be-
lieving that the disturber had been
there before. He had never forgotten
for a moment that extraordinary oc-
currence the night of the hop-the
shadowy civilian who tossed pebbles up
at her window and then floored him in
the twinkling of an eye when he had
sought to challenge. Furthermore,
Maynard had caught the outlines of the
stranger's bulk that night, and those
outlines strongly resembled those of the
man who bent so confidentially over her
as she stood with bowed head, yes, with
apparently attentive ear, down at the
end of the row by old No. 1. What
could be the explanation? What but
that some fornir lover was pursuing her
here and that she, though unable to
welcome him to the garrison, was not
unwilling tomeet him, and if she would
meet him stealthily by day away out on
the prairie in some of its swales or de-
pressions, why not by night, when none
could spy Upon her actions? What other
explanation could there be? Was not
her beauty enough to lure a man from
the ends of the earth? Would not he
have sought and followed her anywhere,
had she but kept the queendom of his
faith and trust. Love her? He did, deep-
ly, passionately, miserably, for now he
recalled that she had never given him
encouragement; that only for a day or
two before his mishap had she shown
shy pleasure at his coming, and all those
days that he used to ride out in search
of her, was it not more than probable
now that he had only been very much
in the way-a nuisance to her and to
her skulking lover? V1ory bitter were his
thoughts, and, manlike, he included in
his jealous anger not only the girl who

And so when Grace Maynard came to
him soon after veuinug gun fire with
some dainty refreshniont Mrs. Standard
had prepared for him he turned away
almost petulantly and with his face to
the wall said he could not bear the sight
of anything to eat. And this was the
brother who ever since babyhood had
been her charge to keep, her loyal and
obedient vassal.
Sighing heavily, she turned away and
would have gone, but he called her
back. "Grace," he said, "there's some-
thing I've got to say. I'm getting all
right. I can sit up just as well as not,
and there's no reason why tomorrow or
next day I shouldn't go to my own room
and why within the week I shouldn't
hurry after the regiment."
"Oh, Ronald," she interrupted, "the
doctor says it would be death to you to
try it."
"Well, better that kind of death than
fretting to death here. It's killing me
by inches, Grace, and I want to get
away, and-we've staid too long here
at the Stannards' anyhow., It's awfully
good of them, but we have no right, no
claim, so I'm going to move day after
tomorrow to my own den, and-you
ought to be thinking about starting for
Think about starting for home, in-
deed? Was she in her sound senses? Was
this her little Ronald telling her she
should be returning to that far Mohawk
village before he was fairly well? It
was incredible, it was more than that,
it was ungrateful, undutiful, cruel,
heartless. She had arranged it all on
very different lines. The doctor was to
give a certificate. She had studied out
the whole situation-a certificate on
which Ronald was to be granted a
month's leave with permission to apply
for another, and then she would bundle
up her hero baby brother, and by easy
stages she would trundle him home, and
there he would sting in his hammock,
and she and Gertrude would do all the
reading and nursing and petting-she
and Gertrude at first, so as to arouse no
suspicion and consequent rebellion--
then she would gradually slip away for
a few moments at a time, then for half
an hour or so, and more and more leave
them alone together, and Cupid and
proximity would do the rest.
But here he was calmly, positively
telling her that it was his purpose to
move to that other roof, never suggest-
ing that she should follow and occupy
Dana's room or Hollis', but with al-
most callous indifference saying it was
time for her to be thinking of the
homeward start because he meant as

soon as possible to take the field. It
meant defeat to her hopes and plans. It
might leave him still under the influ-
ence of this dangerously lovely New
England girl, whom she was bound to
regard as unworthy his notice, yet could
not really believe guilty, no matter
what Mrs. Turner thought, of anything
graver than indiscretion.
The same gloaming that shrouded
Nathalie and her gentle friend in the
adjoining quarters had stolen in upon
this unprompted conference. The sister
could no longer see her brother's face.
He lay there vaguely conscious of, yet
riever hearing, the rapid beating of her

Saching heart. Perhaps In bis own fumnD
mnisory the young follow did not wish
to see or hear the first symptom of
either piin or renionstrance. The one
thought uppermu.st in his mind was
that for logIg, radiPet, beautiful days,
for rapturous hours of night thoughts,
Nathalie Baird had lived queen of his
heart's first love, .pure and strong and
fervent, and that from that qunendom
had Leen da.4ed to earth a broken idol,
and it was hid sistt r who dealt the blow
that shattkrtd her throne. For Mrs.
Turner he felt only impatient contempt.
He recalled now howv c.-ft be had heard
of her as seeing wrong in and saying
wrong of every wr.mau of whom she
felt the faintest en\y. and already there

iniluilse was to protest, and vehemently,

minded of the doctor's demand that he
should be spared all worry and excite-
ment, for his sleep had been fitful and
broken, and be sorely needed oalm re-
pose. At last she ventured to trust her-
"We will not decide tonight, Ron-
ald," she said as gently as she could.
"I will think over all you say, and If
the doctor agrees with you"-
"Whether he agree-s with me or not,"
broko in the young soldier impatiently,
"I leave this house tomorrow or next
day. I will not remain here, a tax on

ing! to the field the moment I can walk.
I shall tell Mrs. S-tannard the first thing

He was awake long hours and was only
falling into a troubled doze when the
rafters shook with the dull boom of the
reveille gun, and the bugle of the infan-
try summoned the little garrison to roll
call. Not ten minutes thereafter came
the sound of voices on the road below,
one broadly Irish, loud, truculent, semi-
defiant, the other low, firm, but authori-

fierce interruption. "You'll see no one

And Maynard, painfully struggling
out of bed, reached the window with
no little effort and gazed out upon the
road. Writhing in the grasp of the cor-
poral of the guard, to whose assistance
another soldier had run, was a brawny
Irishman, and Maynard knew him at a
glance. It was the same fellow whose
shock head had peered from the upper
window over the Empire saloon the day
of his luckless mission in search of ab-
Frantically now he was waving a pa-

light touoh on his arm, and his sister in

"Ronald, this is most imprudent,"
she began, but he shook her off roughly,
relentlessly, for there on the roadway
below before his very eyes a tall, dles-
der girl, her beautiful hair adrift, clad,
like his sister, in loose wrapper, was
hastening toward the struggling group
and at sight of her the contest oeased.

Mr. P. Maloney, at the early hour of
half past 5 o'clock this fine April morn-
ing was not slow in spreading itself
from the guardhouse to the quarterand
thence to officers' row. By the time the
bugle sounded foe guard mounting at 9
there was hardly a household along the
line that did not know that just before
gun fire the Celtic Cerberus of this once
popular resort had turned up in gar-
rison, boldly demanding the right td
Hug at Major Barry's door and merely
asking where it was. ;
Very properly the corporal of the
guard had- ,tO. EsumLoned by the MBa
try who first sighted the presumable
prowler, and very properly the corporal
had told Mr. Maloney that this was nd
hour to be calling at officers' quarter
and that he'd have to come with him t6.
the guardhouse and wait there the
pleasure of the temporary post com-
wander, and vtry properly the corporal
was amazed if not shocked at the sud-
den appearance of the young lady in-
mate of the Barrys' quarters and her
announcement that she would 'Ilow,
the messenger without delay. True tQ.
her word, not half an hour later Misq
Baird issued from the eastern gate and
started swiftly on hEr three mile walk
to town. The corporal saw her go, so
did the hospital steward and the man of
all work, sweeping out the store, and so
did the lone sentry, pacing his post
along the row of storehouses, and much
a thing had never before been heard of
at RusselL Maloney, it seems, had rid,
den out on a borrowed horse and had
hastened back with his answer the mo.
ment the bewildered noncommissioned
officer let him go. What no one of these
men could understand was how it hap-
pned that one so fair and delicate as
iss Baird should have to take that
lonely walk instead of being sent in by
some one of the several vehicles owned
among the officers' families. What they
did not dream was that of all the wom-
en in the crowded garrison not one of
their number at that moment felt sO
friendless, so utterly alone in the world,
as Nathalie Baird.

An Interesting Coincidence.

Schley returned from rescuing the
snivivors of the Greely Arctic expe-
dition, the Massaclhuette I
society preseBntli him,1

Benjamin W.? C'rownin k a0 b
the Bay State's great orators, was
sent to Washington to uake the
presentation speech.
On the way to the capital Mr
Crowninfield fell in with an old and
prominent resident f 'Boston who
took the privilege of asking the ora-
tor what his mission in WVashiington
was. In reply the old gentlemana
was shown the medal and told what
was to be done with it.
"Strange coincidence," mused thie
venerable gentleman from the Hub.
"Forty-four yeats ago, in 1840, I rode
over this same line and met Gen.
Winfield Scott. I was as inquisitive
then as now and asked him where he.
was going. He said that a sont of
his friend, Mr. Sehley, had been
named for him, and that he was go-
ing to Marylaind to see the baby.
Nearly half a century is past and
now I find you going to Warshington
to carry a medal to the man that
Gen. Scott visited when tihe man was

OV, from a Cyolad's verge
Or swift galley's prow to haroe n

Veiled in the sheen
Q1 her glorious sea dripping locks
Buoyant of limb and as bright
As the sole star that leads out the flocks
Of the shepherdess Nightl
But what avails it to sigh
For a glimpse of that day withdrawn?
Not for long in the sky
Stays the fair dawn.

Under the broad noontide,
Gazing, to falter not,
Till from the wide
Ocean of life we behold,

Fairer than Venus of old,
Calmer than Night,
Purer than Dawn or the blue
Depths of ether untrod,

Tinsel Fabrics and the More Costly Bro-
cades of Gold and Silver.
Tinsel fabrics are the lower priced of
the cloths into which gold or silver
thrteds haIre ~-c:u woven. In tinsel fab-
rics the g,:,Ad thrunds are of brass or cop-
per, gilded, and the silver threads are
of white metal. These threads of metal,
originally fine wire, are rolled flat and
buru.shed, andthey glisten ia the fabric
wherever the pattern brings them to the
surface. Tinsel fabrics are made about
three-fourths of a yard in width, and
they sell at 75 cents to $2.50 a yard.
They come in various colors, and many
of them are beautiful and artistic in de-
sign. Some are copies of old Venetian
tapestries. Tinsel fabrics are used for
church and for theatrical purposes and
sometimes for gowns and for decorative
The costlier fabrics, % ith interwoven
metal threads, are called gold and sil-
ver brocades. In these the gold threads
are of silver, gold plated, and the silver
threads are of pure silver; the body of
the fabric is of silk. The brocades are all
beautifuland many of them are ex-
ceedingly :; These fabrics are made
about five-eighths of a yard in width,
and they sell at variousprices up to $25
and sometimes as high as $50 a yard.
The costliest of these fabrics are very
rarely imported into this country, bro-
cades at $10 and $12 a yard being about
the highest priced used here. If more
elaborate fabrics are required, they are
usually imported to order. The finer
fabrics, with metal threads, are made
in France, the commoner kinds in Ger-
Gold and silver brocades are here
used almost exclusively for church pur-
poses and chiefly for vestments. They
are imported in red, violet and green
and also in black with silver threads,
the black and silver being for mourning.

There is more catarrh in this aectioa of
the count r than all other diseases put
together, and until the last few years was
iuoposed to be incurable. For a great
nany years doctors pronounced it a local
giseaso, and prescribedd local re nedief:
and by constantly failing to cure with
local treatment,, pronounced it incurable.
Science has proven. catarrh to be a co.-
Btitutional disease, and therefore re -
iilires constitutional treatisi.it. Hall's

The 1'lant System Has Estab-
lished a Tobacco I)eiart-
nien t.
Recognizing liie growing import-
ance of the large tobacco growing
indnst.ty in Florida, and realizing the
many dis.tdvauit ages under which
the ordinary farnor labirs in learn-
ing how g to grow toacco, President
H1. 1 Plant lhas ehtablitshed a tobac-
co departnieuit. From this. depart-
ment along the lines of the Plant
System will be supplied free of
all charge, explicit anud complete in-
formation as to the best information
as to tlhe biet methods of growing,
curit:g and handling cigar tobacco.
The tobacco department will be
maintained at Fort Meade, and Mr.
Kline 0. Varn will have charge of the
work as special tobacco agent. The
best quality of seed will be supplied
to the farmers and every facility of-
fered to enable them to grow tlhe
highest possible grade of tobacco,
The supply of tobacco from Cuba
has been exhausted and manufactur-
ers who, twelve months ago, scorned
to even look at Florida tobacco, are
now gladly buying it. As a result
prices are steadily advancing, and as
it will be several years before Cuba
has a crop in the market, it will pay
every farmer to plant tobacco this
fall. Every farmer should write Mr.
Varn at once for full information, be-
fore making their seed beds, whether
they have grown tobacco or not.
He will take pleasure in answering
all questions asked by those inter-
ested with practical information.

man need be. Every lady can use this
remedy in her own home without anybody

Quite Different From His Confrere as
Seen on the Stage.
The Kentucky moonshiner in real life
does not resemble his counterpart, de-
scribed in novels and impersonated on
the stage, in the least. He does not
wear top boots and a slouch hat. As a
rule he is too poor to possess the former,
and he is more apt to go barefoot or to
amble along in a pair of wornout bro-
gans than t# wear top boots. His hat is
usually a torn straw "Jimmy" and his
clothes are yellow and faded with age.
Regularly, on days when the grand jury
meets in Louisville, a dozen or more of
the moonshiners are presented for in-
dictment. They present a woebegone
appearance as they pass along the streets
in charge of the marshal. In their own
poor homes in the mountains they are
hospitable, but of the stranger ever sus-
picious. The latter may make his bed
in the one room where the entire fami-
ly sleeps, but his request for a taste of
liquor brings forth a statement that
none is to be had this side of "the
store." At the same time a still may
be in operation within ten feet of his
"The store" represents to the moun-
taineer all civilization. On winter
mornings he will tramp, to it through
cold and snow to sell a few stiff rabbits
and swap yarns not overbrilliant. One
of the mountaineer's chief sources of
income is his honey, and this finds
ready sale at "the store." The moon-
shiner seldom receives money in pay for
his wares, but is paid in a bit of bright
calico for his.wife or a shoulder of ba-
con. If he can add to this a few pipe-
fuls of tobacco, he is well satisfied with
the results of his labors.- '

Eggs May Be Kept Fresh For Months. I
"It is impossible in some sections of
the country to get perfectly fresh eggs
during the winter season," says Mrs.
S. T. Rorer in The Ladies' Home Jour-
nal "To guard against this, in summer
time, when they are cheap, pack them
in lime water, and they will keep in
good condition for three months. Pour
one gallon of boiling water .over a;
pound of lime; when settled and cold,
pour it carefully over the eggs which
you have packed, small ends down, in
a stone jar, and stand in a cool,,dark
placr. Eggs may also be packed in salt;
anything that will close rtl pores of
the shell and prevent evaporatL-.u will

Tle purpose of this Company is to Improve the Country adjacent toS t.
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
To- aaeomhilisli this the Company proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
and-a-half and FiveAcric to such parties only as will improve them by the
reaction of lH'if,:s. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance the
value of uaah t rait ,'j disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants and Vines,
To the end that in the shortest practicable time every such tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
The first question which will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Com-
pany reliable ? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Comoany
to make irumpnro'ventls t:. V I l,-posit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
the same wth any r'.-;.':-ibl. business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their own home to be paid over only when the Company shall satisfacto-
rily show that the i!nilr. 'n.:m t t have been made according to agreement.
S o The Company will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping,guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
for damagLs from any cause possible to be prevented.
From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plantation in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Price o'f ana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; 'ostof planting 1st
year, may $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20,
It is not extrav.1-ir-n: to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if propeirl Iluli ,t..1, yield ; .' worth of fruit and of peaches nearly or quite
the samle, while fi Gi- should do even better than that. lThen, though perhaps a little
longer, iome of them, in c'.:mi, : ii profitable bearing may be named pears, apricots,
neetarinoes, InIn, prunes, iill,'-r i.--, olives,, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, JapaI. chestnuts, pecans, and many other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
are almost certain to l..oii i- here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
sidered certain yioldl irgo returns oftener than they miss
The Secretary of the Company will give particular attention to an-
sweringletters of inquiry, and the B)or will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all qunsa;ons asked it.
R E M E nI B R the Company Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Paymiiint; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work has been performed. CO RRESP NDEN E SOLICITED.

The Struggle for Food.
New York Sun.
It was in a cheap downtown res-
taurant w'heie some of the waiters
are reformed pugilists. The custom-
er was a weak enough looking little
man. Hie came in and sat down at
the end table. "Whatcha want?"
demanded the waiter.
"I'd like to have a top sirloin,"
said the customer.
"What, a top sirloin steak?"
snarled the waiter.
"Is there a top sirloin anything
else?" asked the customer meekly.
"Did you think I wanted a top sir-
loin chicken, or a top sirloin duck?
When a man asks for a top sirloin
he want- a top sirloin steak, doesn't
"Say, you look et here," said the
waiter. -'When you come in here
you're supposed to give yer order
right, see? If yer want a steak yer
want tor say yer want a steak, see?
D'ye t'ink d' boss hires mind readers
fer waiters 'n sells steak for fifteen
cents besides?"
"My friend, it seems to me you're
a little sassy," said the meek cus-
"Say, didja come here t' pass re-
marks 'r t' eat?" demanded the
waiter. "Uome, whatcha want-er
git out."
"I want a top sirloin steak,
please," said the meek man, a bit
"They ain't no please about it,"
snorted the waiter.
He walked away three steps
towards the kitchen. Then he turn-
ed and came back. "Say, young
fellow," he said, "it ain't a piece o'
steak that you wants, it's a piece o'
me, see, 'n yer going' t' git it."
Saying which, he hauled off and
swung his right hand around with
force enough to have driven the meek
man through the wall. The other
customers jumped up and rushed at
the waiter, but they were not quick
enough. The meek man had let out
with his left foot and kicked him in
the shins. That kick. bent lim
forward, and, as he came, the meek
man swung his right and caught him
the short ribs. There was a grunt
that was heard a block, and the
waiter fell in his tracks. His wind
was gone and agony was written in
his face. The meek man stood over
him. It was a minute before the
waiter came to, and, rolling over
painilully, clambered to his fdet. The
meek man feinted with his right.
The waiter dodged.
"Do I get my top sirloin steak 'n
raw fried potatoes?" asked the meek
"Sure yer do," said the waiter
meekly; "butcha wouldn't if yer
hadn't ordered 'em, see?" and he
limped off toward the kitckoe
"It beats me," said the meek man,
"how sassy some waiters do get."
The other customers went back to
their places and quiet reigned.
What is probably the oldest doll
in _existence, a little figure rudely
carved in wood, is in the British Mu-
seum. It was found in the sarco-
phagus of an Egyptian princess, who
had died when a child, three centu-
ries before the Christian era. When
the wrappings were unfolded from
the body the baby finger still clasp-
ed the doll.

than the offer ofT. A. Slocum, M. C., of
183 Pearl street, New Yo-k City.
Confidentthat he has discovered an
absolutecure for consumption and all

Already this "new scientific course of
medicine," has permanently cured thou-
sands of apparently hopeless cases.
The Doctor considers it his religious
duty-a duty which he owes to hnman-
ity-to donate his infallible cure.
Offered freely, is enough to commend it,
and more so is the perfect confidence of
the great chemist making the proposition.
He has proved the dreaded consump-
tion to be a curable disease beyond any
There will be no mistake in sending -

Shattered His Faith.
Detroit Free Prehs.
"As you put the question in so di-
rect a manner," said the judge, in
his slow, judicial way. "I must ad-
mit that I have had my romance
Strange how a sentimental youth can
develop into a crabbed and suspicious
old bachelor.
I did not have the invaluable ex-
perience of building up a law practice
under adverse circumstances. I had
money of my own and plenty of influ-
ential friends. This accounts for the
fact that while yet a young man I
was sent to Germany to look after
the legal details of a very important
transaction. I gained all the infor-
mation I had been sent for, and have
no doubt that I was elated by this
outcome, which practically means
that I was inflated.
On my voyage home my good feel-
ingx made me one of the social stars
of the trip. The first-class passed.
gers were an exceptionally enjoyable
lot, but the chief attraction to me
was one of the most beautiful and
fascinating young women it has ever
been my fortune to meet. Her con-
veroation was sparkling and there
was added piquancy through just the
trace of a French accent. The elo-
quence of her eyes, hands and ihoul-
ders surpassed anything that mere
speech can produce. In these phys-
ical means of expression she was a
Yvette Guilbert, but so cultured and
refined that she would still have been
fascinating, though she were homely.
Her guardiann' was a big man with
a big voice and showed his thrift by
winning most of the money that was
ventured on cards.
Details are unnecessary when the
main fact is known that I fell fath-
oms deep in love with the charming
ward. When we reached New York
she wore my diamond ring and we
parted with lovers' embrace. Ten
minutes later I felt for my expensive
gold watch. It was gone, So was
my costly pin. So were about an
inch thick of large bills that I had
in a flat pocket-book. So was my
faith in women."
A Double Ended Joke.
Detroit Free Press.
That was a meap joke that a For-
est avenue man played on his wife
the other day. He had been called
upon at his ,ffiue by a peranmulating
phrouologist who explored the crey-
ices, fissures and elevations of the
Iload "ith fingers that were neither
dainty nor clean. He had cunning-
ly fixed his prices at fifty cents for a
small brain and $1 tor a large one,
the result beiqg that the small-brain-
ed men generally insisted on paying
the higher price. The Forest ave-
nue resident did not have his own
bumps interpreted, but told the phre-
nologist to call at his house that
evening, the hired girl was under

have to predict for her a bad end as
