A minister's Good Work.
"I had a severe attack of bilious colic,
got a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera Diarrhoea Remedy, took two
doses and was entirely cured," says Rev.
*A. A. Power, of Emporia, Kan. "My
neighbor across the street was sick for
over a week. had two or Shree bottles of
medicine from tne doctor. He used
them for three or four days without re-
lief, then n2alled in another doctor who
treated, him for some days and gave him
no relief, so discharged him. I went
over to see him the next morning. He
said his bowels were in a terrible fix,
that they had been running off so long
that it was almost bloody flux. I asked
hi m if he had tried Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and he
said. 'No.' I went home and brought
him my bottle and ..g-a_ iim onUL 4bom;
told him tW-ake -another dose in fifteen
or twenty minutes if he did not find re-
lief, but he took no more anl was en-
tirely cured." For sale by Wight &

A Cavalry Charge.
In a cavalry charge, especially when
the firing is at long range, it is prac-
tically impossible for the enemy to
aim at so small a figure as a human
being with.any certain chance of hit-
ting him. And so, the horse present-
ing the larger target, the list of casual-
ties among horses, under the circum-,
stances, is naturally greater than
among men. At Talavera 290 horses
were killed and 240 men, while at the
famous Charge of the Light brigade
at Balaklava the losses among horses
were 360 and among men 280.
Why He Barked.
A witness in an Irish court talked so
loud that Charles Philips, who was
counsel on the other side, said, "Fel-

"Because." said the man, looking

When Offpnbach's carriage came

There are certain insects that have
such a respect for Mrs. Grundy and
are, endowed with such an innate love
of neatness and order that not even
death, or rather decapitation, can pre-
vent them from making one grand
final toilet, which is clearly designed
to give them a sedate and respectable
appearance after death.
Dr. Billion, a skilled entomologist,
discovered this remarkable fact. "Dur-
ing one of my recent horseback rides,"
he says, "I frequently caught one of
those large fies& which -anny cattle
and horses so much. and I promptly
got rid of it by crushing its head.
One day, instead of throwing the mu--
tilated insect away, I placed it on the
back of my hand and indolently watch-
ed it. For some seconds the insect re-
mained motionless, but then, to my
unbounded surprise, it moved its front
legs forward to the place where the
head should have been, and, after it
had rubbed them nervously- together,
apparently in anguish, 'it began to
brush its body and to smooth its wings
with its hind legs. Under the gentle
pressure of these limbs the body grad-
ually became extended and the ex-
tremity curved, while the wings grad-
ually changed their natural position
and left the upper part of the body
exposed. Meanwhile the hind legs
continued to brush each other from
time to time.
"Naturally I watched this extra-
ordinary sight with great interest, and,
1in order to see the finale, I took the
Insect into my study, where it lived
an entire day, spending the time at
the ungrateful task of making its own

The Atmospherle Ocean.

A Pamous Squate.
There Is said to be no equal in the
world to the grand and imposing
square of Paris, the Place de la Con-
corde. On one side of it is the Tuile-
ries, on the opposite side the Champs
Elysees and on a third the river Seine.
In the center stands the obelisk of
LUxOD, a magnificent monolith of red
Egyptian granite, 74 feet high and
weighing 500,000 pounds. This obelisk
was one of two of the same shape and
size, erected in 1350 B. C., by Rame-
see the Great at the entrance of the
temple of Thebes. Mohammed All,
pasha of Egypt, presented it to the'
French government, and in 1836 it
was removed to its present position In
the Place de la Concorde. The re-
moval and erection on the new site re-
quired an outlay of 80,000 and the
employment of 800 men, the obelisk
being transported to France in a ves-
sel built especially for the purpose.
The Place de la Concorde is rich In
historic interest. It was there that the
guillotine was erected In the "reign
of terror." after the death of Louis
XVI. and it was there that the signal
was given for the attack on the Bastille
nII 17S&L. Loutei.XVI and Marie An-
toinette were beheaded there In 1793,
and It wa-' the scene of great rejoic-

At the same time it struck out at him
and broke off one of its fangs on the
edge of the hoe blade. My uncle dis-
patched the snake and then picked up
the fang and brought it to the house
as a curiosity. It was sharp as a

"You said you wanted to pay for
four," retorted the trolley employee.
"1 didn't," denied the woman. "You

Buenos Ayres seems to have the
largest "rocking stone" yet discovered.
It is situated on the slope of the moun-

the province, antc measures 90 feet
long by 1A feet tboad and is 24 feet
high. Its bulk is 5,000 cubic feet, and
it weighs at least 25 tons. Neverthe-
less, it is so beautifully poised that a
single person can set it rocking. When

here of writing or calling at the office

such and such subject will be pub-

No newspaper man can answer such
a question affirmatively without tak-
ing great risks. No question of that
kind will be answered affirmatively
by the present editor of this paper.
The best that he can do is. to tell you
to write it aid bring it in for inspec-
tion. Unfkrtanately (for them-
selves, alone) some people do not like
to be answered that way. It is,
therefore, better- far better-to write
what you h(ve to say. Then bring,
or send it tb this office. Then the
editor can-without delay or equivo-
cation- tell you -yes" or "no" with
some certain y and at the same time
exercise due judgment and discretion
in the matter. The chances are a
thousand to one, almost, that what-
ever you wiite will be published,
but, for heaven's sake, do not expect
an editor to take a thing without
ever seeing it. These remarks are
made with the hope that people will
heed them. Within the past few
weeks the ;editor has been asked

Here isW some more Republican
prosperity,! taken from Dunn's Re-
view for the week ending August 4:
"Failureo by branches of business
during Julf, given in detail today,
show a total of 793 commercial con-
cerns, with aggregate liabilities of
*9,771,755, and 4 banking defaults

tires numbred 183, with liabilities of
$5,177,GiS2; and trading 550, with
:34 ,34 366i liabilities. The total
(1S,474,0,) shows a heavy
increase in comparison with
the corresponding month last
year, which, is mainly due to phe-
nomenally sound conditions existing
at that tiine. In
machinery and kindred lines, largely
dependent on the cost of iron, dis-
asters have;also been severe. Man-
ufacturers with large stocks of raw
material on, hand, purchased when
iron was at the top, have suffered
losses in trying to sell their products
in a dull market, and in competition
with more fortunate concerns that
had lighter stocks of iron and steel
at the beginning of the year, and
waited to purchase until much of the
decline had occurred. Failures in
this class exceeded every month since
these statements were commenced in
189:3. Three bicycle and automobile
concerns failed for $1,261,469, one
machinery maker for $100,000, and
one typewTiter manufacturer for

paign, and f .which Judge is having

that it will not be forthcoming.

A Natural Lighthouse.
Stromboli. one of the Lipari lands,
has constantly and usefully performed
the function of a lighthouse for jt !east
2,000 years. Circular in outline, the
island culminatesn a conical -shaped
elevation, due to past volcaniq agen-
cy, which rises to the height of 3.090
feet above sea level and isivisible over
an area having a radius of mofe than
100 miles. During the day masses of
vapor are seen issuing from f point
high up the mountain side, and at
night successive displays of red light,
varying in duration and intensity,
somewhat resemble those of the gigan-
tic flashlight on the coast. Thi flashes
last from under one to over 20'ainutes,
gradually increasing to a ruddy glow
and as gradually fading awaf.
This island is referred to by several
very ancient writers as the great nat-
ural pharos of the western Mediter-
ranean. Now it serves the "ame pur-
pose for the constant streani of traf-
fic passing to and from thO French
and Italian ports in the gulfs1of Genoa
and of Lyons, through the 'traits of
Messina, for which Strom4ll acts as
a "leading" light. To such mn extent
is this the case that, although the other
principal islands of the Lliari archi-
pelago are marked by lighthouses,

-'Can't you ren'ieiaL;er the principal

They go in one year and out the oth-
oees* of a Sleepint Car.
The income or earning capacity of a
sleeping car is considerable. Take the
run from -New York to Chicago, 1,000
miles. Every road in the United States
pays 3 cents a mile for the privilege of
hauling a sleeper and contracts to re-
turn said car in as good shape as it Is
received and to pay for all damages.
The journey on the limited expresses
to Chicago is made in 24 hours; there-
fore the car earns $30 a day for travel.
If it is full, which is generally the
case, receipts from berths, sections and
staterooms amount to $185, making a
total revenue of $125 a day. Out of
this must come the wages of the por-
ter and conductor-the latter, however,
usually having charge of several cars-
the towels, sheets, soap, ice, etc., the
* whole amounting to but a small sum.
.Then there are the wear and tear and
general depreciation, the daily clean-
ing,* the annual refitting and repaint-
ing. Set these charges down at 10 per
cent and give the car three trips a
week of 1,000 miles each, and we have
its earnings at over $60,000 annually..
Some can earn a great deal more.-

PasMing of the Old Maid.
IT'he old maid. of the past-sour, scan-
dal loving, sharp of temper and of fea-
tures is now almost an unknown
quantity. The unmarried woman of
today who has passed her twenties is
e--*, active, busy and useful Gen-
erally she is in business or has some
special art, profession or accomplish-
ment to which she devotes herself.
Anyway she is not idle. She finds
many things to employ her hands and
brains. She has little time for gossip
and less inclination. Culture and oc-
cupation have broadened her nature
and given her charity and wisdom.-

the burglar.-Bradford Star.

A "Woman's Rights Person."
An old Virginia gentleman arose in a
car the 'other day and with a great
flourish of his slouch hat offered his
seat to a beautiful and handsomely
"Take my seat, madam," he politely
requested. The lady demurred. "Take
my seat, I beg of you, madam," he in-
sisted. "I could not allow a lady to
stand, unless." he added' under his
breath, "she was one of those women's

said in a freezing tone--"I am a 'wom-

smilingly. "You are too good looking

severe looking lady. In her lap lay
a thick book, whose manila paper cov-

The seat facing her was octupieid b'y

As the train slowed up for the Fif-

up her bundle, rose and began to el-

aisle toward the door. The young man
looked at the little tin box left on the
seat, but did not budge. The old gen-

shoulder, gracefully lifting his hat as
she turned around.

In large, gilt letters, "All Tobacco
Cigarettes."-New York Mail and Ex-
Pays Every Day.
One New York millionaire who earn-
ed his fortune by his o.wn efforts under
rather disadvantageous circumstances
conducts his business in I way that is
highly original in many, particulars.
One of the most striking 4 these is his
method of dealing with his employees.
They are paid every nigl+, and at the
close of every business day all the ex-
penses of running the business have
been met. and the manager knows just
how his affairs stand as far as that
feature of his business is concerned..
But that is not his object in paying
salaries every day instead of following
the usual custom and waiting until the
end of the week or month. He employs
many men who have lost former situ-
ations through intemperdnce, although
they were all men of ability in their
field. If they severed their connection
practically with the establishment at
the close of every business day, it
made no difference to the employer
what happened to the man after he left
his establishment By this means the
millionaire is able to get the services
of good men at a small salary and have
no responsibility as to their conduct
after they have received their pay for
one day's 'ork.-New York Sun.

over a number of names. I interrupt-
ed her in each case by asking what
had become of them. 'Shq's joined the
Latter Day Saints.' was the answer
when the object of' my question had
neither removed nor died. 'It seems to
me everybody- has joined the Latter
Day Saints,' I commented. 'Yes,' she
replied: 'most every one. They had a
revival here and got them all except
me.' 'Why didn't they get you?' I ask-
ed. 'I reckon because I was bedridden,
and they could not get at me,' she said
