A. Day Dream of Te,.,,,. I
IN the "Life of Tennyson" occurs te
"A kind of waking trance I have f-
quently iad, up from boyhood, whe I1
htte been all alone.. This has geperay
come upon me through repeating y
Own name two or three times to mys lf
silently. till all at once, as it were -it

of individuality, the individuality itself
seemed to dissolve and fade away I to

fused state, but the clearest of fhe

weirdest of the weirdest, utterly pe-
yond words, where death was an 'al-
most laughable impossibility, the Iss
of personality (if so it were) seeming
no extinction but the only true lfe.
This might be the state which St. P ul
describes, 'whether in the body I (on-
not tell, or whether out of the bodI 1
cannot tell.' I am ashamed of my fee-
ble description. Have I not said *the
state is utterly beyond words? Buj in
a moment when I come back to .my
normal state of 'sanity' I am reads to
fight for mein liebes Ich and hold ihat
It will last for aeons and sons." I

The New Rabbit. i
"Why, where did you come f4om,
Uncle Jasper?" I said to the old dirky
who had sent the house girl in to tell
me that he wanted to see me. 4
"I come fum Decatur, Miss Al'ce,"'
he said. "I got to Atlanta 'bout'two
hours ago, but I didn't 'low you wus
ready to see nobody."
"Did you come on the -train I
"No, ma'am; dat I didn't. I co e in

"On what?"
"On de rabbit. You sholy done erd

"Oh," I said, "you mean the fapid

"Yessum, de rabbit transhunt. )at's

A stoinachful of undigested food is
about as unhealthy a mass one cai well
What can be done with it?
There it stays. It won't digest. It
churns up, ferments and decays* be-

does) and causes great pain and deep-

It stops fermentation and deiay at

How lie Cured the II.
The late Father Boyle, wh< for years
was one of the most prone nent and
popular Catholic priests in Washing-
ton. had a great reputation as a wit.
Some of his most intimate fr nds were
Protestants and members o the Prot-
estant clergy. A few inmo hs before
his death he erected a miss ,ary chap-"
el down by the navy yard ud bought
at a junkshop an old bell vhich had
been discarded by one of he Protes-
tant churches. He sent tl bell to a
foundry in Georgetown a1 had sev-
eral inches of metal pared ff the rim.
Having thus got rid of a crack, the
harsh and discordant tones of the bell
became soft and sweet. Meeting a
Presbyterian minister not long after,
Father Boyle called his att tion to the



change, and the latter could scarcely
believe it was the same bell.
"What in the world did you do- to
that bell," Inquired the Presbyterian
pastor, "to cause such a change in the
tone ?"
"We blessed it and blessed It and
blessed it until we got the Presbyterian
devil out of it," retorted Father Boyle,
"and then it sounded all right."-
Washington Star.
Our Sun a Small One.
The sun is about 02,000,000 miles off.
The only wqy of measuring the dis-
tance of a fi ed star is by parallax, and
scarcely more than half a dozen can be
estimated that way. Suppose the sun
is here, in space, on Jan. 1. On July 1
he w:l1 be 184,000,000 miles over there.
This is the base of measurement. The
observer who wants to estimate the
distance of, say, the star A Centauri
notes its position with regard to the
next star. In six months he notes
again, and if they are separated by a
different distance a so called parallax
is established, and some calculation
can be made of the distance of the
nearest one. In the most favorable
cases this parallax is extremely slight.
What is the sun mnadle of? The lines
of the spectrum give an idea of his
chemical properties, but Ibyond that
all is hypothesis. His substance,- as a
whole, is of much lighter material than
the earth, but yet there may be a hard
and heavy fiery pudding inside, for
there is a light and thick outer coating,
named the photosphere. Outside this,
refining away to an unknown distance,
is the chromosphere, of hot air, so to
speak. The spots are rifts through the
photosphere, coming and going, and
some are so large that our whole earth
could be shot right through, with a
thousand miles to spare all around.
When a total eclipse covers the sun,
flames to the height'of thousands of
miles are seen out of the photosphere.
The sun is a hundred times larger than
the earth, an easy thing to say, and yet
our sun is believed to be a rather small
one. For instance, Sirius is at least
nine times as big.-Imperial.

Ball'Ps Campaign Story.
It is not probable that a better story
\teller than ex-Lieutenant Governor Da-
vid A. Ball of Missouri ever stood be-
fore an American audience. In 1896
he was trying to persuade the gold
Democrats that, notwithstanding the
fact that they differed from the regu-
lars on the financial issue, they agreed
with them on so many points that they
ought to vote for Bryan anyway. He
wound up that part of his speech as
"How would a Mossback Missouri
Democrat look voting with the Repub-
licans? I will tell you. Up In Pike
county an old chap undertook to com-
mit suicide by hanging himself with a
blind bridle. Just as he was about
dead his son cut him down. The old
man rubbed his eyes and said, 'John, if
you had let me alone a minute longer
I would have been in heaven.' 'Yes,'
replied the boy; 'you would have cut a
deuce of a figure in heaven looking
through a blind bridle, wouldn't you'f
And that," concluded Mr. Ball. "is the
way a Missouri Democrat would look
voting for a Republican under any cir-
cumnstances whatsoever!"-Champ Clark
in Saturday Evening Post.

Is a Good Breakfaxt Necessary? Yen.
A good breakfast is the physical basis
3f a day's work. The American break-
fast, regarded with so much horror on
the European continent, has contrib-
uted largely to make the nation what
it is today. It enabled our forefathers
to do an amount of work which it ap-
pals foreigners to contemplate.
As a rule there is something wrong
with the man or with his habits if he
cannot eat a good breakfast. A man
who works at high tension all through
the morning hours without this sub-
stantial foundation is working entirely
upon his nerves. That means disorder-
ed nutrition and sooner or later bank-
ruptcy and collapse.
If a man gets up in the morning with
a bad taste and no inclination for food,
It is because his system is full of waste
and his circulation of obstructions. Let
him make a radical change in his hab-
its and train his digestive organs to ac-
commodate a nourishing morning meal.

Cattle and Horses Do Not Get Prisgh
eaed Im nougK Weather.
"Do the horses and cattle get fright-
ened and make much disturbance in
rough weather?" asked the writer of
a New York dealer who ships cattle
"Bless you, no. They've got sea legs
that would put an old salt to shame.
Occasionally a horse will lose his bal-
lance, but a bullock is the greatest bal-
ancer you ever saw. They are knowing
brutes too. You know, we put them
four in a pen. Well, you'll never filed
all four standing up or lying down at
one time. They figure the thing out
and decide how they'll get the most
room and most comfort. So two of
them stand up while two lie down.
When they get tired, they shift the
"The horses like to be talked to when
there's a big sea on and things are
pretty lively. They always like cer-
tain men better than others. So do
the cattle. We have one man who can
do anything with them. Every but-
lock and horse on the boat knows him
by the time we've been out two days.
He copes in handy when there's an
"It's mighty seldom that a serious
accident happens nowadays, but once
in awhile a horse or a bullock does
get thrown and breaks a leg or does
some bad damage. We don't carry a
veterinary. The men know as much
about ordinary cattle and horse ail-
ments as any vet, and if one of the
brutes breaks his leg there's nothing
for it but to kill him. A veterinary
couldn't do anything for him.
"The company charges from $6 to
$20 a head for carrying cattle and
from $27 to $250 a head for horses.

Rses and Turks.
"It would give a genuine and relt.
glous Turk a fit if he saw hoy little
appreciation Americans show for the
rose and what little reverence they
have for It," spoke a florist as he wrap-
ped the foil about the stems of a bou-
"The rose is beyond question the pret-
tiest flower that blooms, and it was so
considered by the Turks many years
before the conquest of Granada. There
is a religious legend generally believed
in throughout Turkey that the red rose
sprang from a drop of the great proph-
et Mohammed's blood. Everything
beautiful in nature is ascribed to him.
The Turks, therefore, have great rev-
erence for the flower and allow it to
bloom and die untouched, except on
state occasions and for the purpose of
making rosewater.
"After the conquest by the Turks
they would not worship in any church
until the walls were cleansed and wash-
ed with rosewater and thus purified by
the blood of the prophet. It is used on
the body for the same purpose. A Turk
whose conscience is stung by some act
or deed he has committed will caress
and pay reverence to the rose to ap-
pease the wrath of the prophet and
"With these ideas inculcated in him
from youth it would shock him severe-
ly to see the pretty flower strewn in
the path of a bridal couple, thrown on

"As Mad as a HatteZ.i
Probably very few persons who fre-
quently use the expression "As mad as
a hatter" have any idea as to what it
means or why a hatter is necessarily
any more subject to tits of anger than
a plumber, a blacksmith, or a carpen-
ter. The expression is said to have
come into use half a century ago, when
the manufacture of hats was done
wholly by hand. The most strikhig
thing about the process was that of the
beating ip of the felt The hatter first
dipped the mass of wool and hair fre-
quently into hot water; then. seizing a
stick in each hand. lie belaborfed the-
mass most vigorously, stopping now
and then to get his breath, until the
material was matted together in a
rough sort of felt The lively beating
administered to the felt, as if the work-
man were actually incensed, gave rise
to the familiar simile.

An Uneven Contest.
"They had a lively boxing match at
Splinter's the other night."
"How was that?"
"Splinter came home late, and as be
passed through the hall his wife's tall-
est palm touched him on the cheek.
Splinter was in an excited condition
and thought it was somebody's fingers.
So he struck out wildly with both fists
and succeeded In knocking over two
palms and severely bumping his own
"But why do you call it a boxing
"Because Splinter put up his knuc-
kles against his wife's palms."-Cleve-
land Plain Dealer.

Why His Life Was a Failure.
"Yes. I consider my life a failure."
"Oh, Henry, how sad! Why should
you say that?"
"I spent all my time making money
enough to buy food and clothes, and
the food disagrees with me, and my
clothes don't fit"-Life.

He was a man of GO, and, surrounded
by a crowd at the Ninth avenue en-
trance of Prospect park, he proceeded
to explain his fall and his broken bike
by saying:
"It was all iay own doings. When I
got along here, I saw a fat woman
wabbling along on her wheel, and at
the same moment two baby carriages
appeared to block the way. I was go-
ing at a clip of 30 miles an hour. I
could have run over and killed the fat
woman and escaped without a scratch
or I could have collided with the baby
carriages and left two mangled forms
behind. My resolution was taken in
an instant to sacrifice myself instead
of others, and I rose on the pedals,
uttered a brief prayer to heaven and
took a header over the handle bars.
The fat woman wabbled on with hap-
piness in her heart, the babies will live
to grow up and enjoy lifd, and a month
hence my durned old spinal column

ment is the grand-
est remedy ever I


will do for every woman what it did for the
Minnsoa mother who writes the above let-
ter. Not to use it during pregnancy is a
mistake to be paid for in pain and suffering.
Mother's Friend equips the patient with a
strong body and dear intellect, which in
turn are imparted to the child. It relaxes
the muscles and allows them to expand. It
relieves morning sickness and nervousness.
It puts all the organs concerned in perfect
condition for the final hour, so that the actual
labor is short and practically painless. Dan-
ger of rising or hard breasts is altogether
avoided, and recovery is merely a matter oi
a few days.

You are skeptical about *:e accuracy
of this statement and ask why water
does not leak from a bottle f there are
holes in everything? Tbj answer is
simple enough-the drops or globules
of water are bigger thari the holes.
Taking glass as an illustration, we find
that air is about the only substance
that can get through those boles.
A scientist proposes the following as
an experiment: Place a b9l in a bottle
exhausted of air and hermetically
sealed. The bell will not Ojng because

Set the bottle aside for a ew months,
then try the bell again, an it will ring,

will be a sound. That mnins that the
air has got in. It has iade its way
through the holes in the glass.
The incandescent lampOils a bulb of
glass exhausted of air so hat the slen-
der filament may glow 1Aen the elec-
tricity runs along it. t.e air works

Nuts as Fo
Nuts contain a large a ount of nour-

Few newspaper offices ever lck
for "gas"-but that is still Ithe
trouble with THE TALLAIIASSEi AN.
We have gas, it is true, but it t kes
the "gassiest sort of gas" to ijake
our engine go, and until the J ant
gets through making repairs and
gives us genuine coal gas, we ujght
just as well be in the midst of a gas
famine. The gas people promii# to
do this in a few days, and Ihen
everything will be serene. Another
spell like this and we would fee like
taking to the woods to escape the
condemnation of well-meaning peo-
ple who do not seem to unde tand
the difference between oil and coal
gas. If we only had the miions
that are said (by some of our tolit-
ical enemies) to be at our k we

Brother Walton, of the I East
Coast Advocate, hat evidentl been
rubbed the wrong way by a ae ad-
vertising agency or a fake dver-
tiser. He remarks in the curnt is-
sue of his paper. "What catches
many a man is the so-called I"v rate
of some paper, which has ablutely
nothing else to offer as an iduce-
ment-no prestige, no circulaljon, no
nothing, just a low rate. A" er the
advertiser has paid his "lo' rate"
andsgot nothing, he finds tha it was
a high rate. In fact, he pai, about
100 per cent. more than th thing
was worth." Nothing nearer correct
was ever written. A cheas adver-
tisement is about as near w rth no-
thing as anything a business man
can get. The most expentve ad-
vertisement always pays. When

may it wasn't so. Under the circum- in
stances, we shall let the public draw
its own conclusions.
During the recent damp weather
somebody has evidently been send- p
ing subscription -money to the Sav- r
annah Morning News in postage ,
stamps in an unsatisfLctory condi-
tion. Certainly, nothing short of
that could arouse the usually con- ti
servative editor of that paper to the ti
point of perpetrating the following: s
"It is understood that Postmaster- I
General Smith has his eye upon a S
one-cent letter rate, and that his re- o
cent- order respecting second-class g
matter was a step in that direction. o
The new order, it is estimated, will a
result in a saving of many thousands G
of dollars to the Government. Be- a
fore the Postmaster General ti
gives us penny postage, how- si
ever, the millions of its patrons
of the stamp windows would be un-
der obligations to him if he would b
devote some small part of his saving n
to providing paper at the windows in s
which to wrap their adhesive pur- h
chases. They will not ask that the ii
clerk at the window be required to-(
quit reading long enough to perform
the laborious duty of folding the s
stamps in the paper, they are willing r
to do that themselves: all they ask is
a little piece of oiled paper, worth C
probably the one-hundredth part of t
one cent." c

"Screw loose somewhere" caused s
Florida's great daily to lay up for
repairs last Tuesday morning, and l
the T.-U. and C. readers who had
been daily declaring "there's nothing
in it" were the loudest and crossest r
grumblers because they missed just c
one copy. Funny, but fact.-Bar-

Of course, the fellow who pre- I
tends to care the least for a paper is I
the one that "kicks" the hardest
when he does not get it. And, in-
congruous as it may seem, the fel- f
low who protests that he does not
want to see his name in print in 99
out of 100 instances gets as mad as
a hornet if he is overlooked. Once
upon a time a prominent statesman
delivered a memorial address in this
city.. We secured from his secre-
tary a copy of his speech and bad it
set up at an expense of about $2.
He learned about it, and called
around to request that it be left out,
"as he did not want people to steal
his Memorial Day thunder." We
protested, but he was persistent, and
we finally gave in. From that day
until this, and it has been several
years, he has been as frosty as a De-
* cember morning toward the editor
of this paper.

The London Daily Mail of a re-
cent date pays Americ a glowing
tribute in a few- words. It says:
"Modern office furniture, from the

desk to the door mat, is nearly all
American. One sits on a Nebraska
swivel chair, before a Michigan roll-
top desk, writes one's letters on a
Syracuse typewriter, signing them
with a New York fountain pen and
drying them with a blotting sheet
from New England." The list
might perhaps be spun out to include
many other lines besides office fur-

"You must be on your good be-
havior this evening, George, for the
minister is to take dinner with us,"
aid a Hyattsville lady to her worker
half, as he got home from his office
n the city last Thursday.
"What have you for dinner?"
queried the husband.
"Well, I know he is fond of fish,
so I bought quite a string of small
river fish and several larger ones
from the dam."
"I'm not much at doing the hon-
rs when we have a minister at the
table," said George, "but I guess we
can get through with it all right."
Half an hour later they were
seated at the table, and a blessing
bad been asked by the minister. A
little nervously the head of the fam-
ily began dishing out the vegeta-
bles, and, turning to the guest, said:
" have some of the little
river fish, or would you prefer some
)f the dam big fish?"
The warning kick under the table
from his wife' was unnecessary. He
knew be had blundered, and cold
beads of perspiration started out on
his forehead.

error, "will you have some of the

daughter slyly pulled his coat-tail to
bring him to his senses.
"That is, would you like some of
the river fish or some of the other

The deep carnation spreading
over the good lady's face didn't
mend matters a bit, anl, with a gasp,
he plunged in once more:

you prefer, anyway?.'-Ex.

Hunting the Kangaroo.
When brought to bay, the kangaroo
jumps like a flash for the hunter*'
chest and tries to crush it in with his
fore feet. To prevent this each man
wears across his breast a two or three
inch thick matting. Armed with a
spear, with a club attachment at the
other end, they ride upon swift horses
into a herd.
With the agility and equipoise of cir-
cus riders they stand erect upon their
horses and use their spears and clubs.
The kangaroo is able to jump clear
over a horse. As the game is bagged
it is skinned, and the skin Is stretched
on the ground and pegged down to pre-
vent shrinkage. The flesh furnishes
meat for the camp.
Each man places his private mark
upon his booty, and when they have
100 apiece they return back to civiliza-
tion. There are 20 varieties of kanga-
roos, among them the blue, red walla-

The Grand Medieine Man.
The ceremony of the Grand Medicine
Is an elaborate ritual, covering several
days, the endless number of gods and
spirits being called upon to minister to
the sick man and to lengthen his life.
The several degrees of the Grand Med-
icine teach the use of incantations, of
medicines and poisons, and the require-
ments necessary to constitute a brave.
When a young man seeks admission
to the Grand Medicine lodge, lie first
fasts until he sees in his dream some

fisher being most conmion, which he
hunts aid< kills. The skin is then

Civic characters of local fame imbued
with a sense of their own importance
are not wholly unknown in this coun-
try, a fact which may account for the
familiar ring of the following story
found in "Highways and Byways In
East Anglia:"
Mayor Wakefield one 'day set out for
the next town with a load of hay. On
the way a truss fell from the load, and
he applied to a passerby for assistance
in replacing it The man addressed.
instead of rendering willing aid, drew
himself up to rather more than his nor-

prohitlon states or America, accord-
ing to an English paper. "I am now
about to undertake a feat," said he, "in
*which I shall need the use of a pint
flask of whisky." There was a dead
silence. "Will some geiitlemno in the
audience favor me with a pint of whis-
ky?" There was no response, and the
conjuror began to look blank. "Sure-
ly." be continued, "in a southeastern
prohibition town I ought not to have to
ask a second time for such .a thing. I
give my word I will return It Intact.

*"Stranger," said a tall, gaunt man
as he rose slowly from a front seat,
"wouldn't a quart flask do as well?"
"Why. certainly! I merely"-

His Unlucky Day.
Even the least superstitious are often
struck by the misfortunes which at-
tend some persons on certain dates. A
large firm in the city has in its employ
a living Instance of the fact. On June
12 an .employee lost his left arm by
coming in contact with machinery.
The accident disabled him for his then
employment, and he was given that of
a messenger. On another June 12 he
was run over in the Strand while on
an errand-result, a broken leg. The
next accident was a fall on the stairs
in the firm's buildings, again June 12;
the right arm broken this time. The
fourth mishap on another anniversary
broke three ribs. The firm took the
case Into consideration and issued an
order that in future the employee was
to take a holiday on that date, an order
with which he has now complied for
several years.-London Chronicle.
Couldn't Find the Corkscrew.
They live pretty well out, in a hand-
some home but not near enough to a
fire station to be "handy in case of ac-
cident." As the house is their own
and their all the husband had been
somewhat in terror of a blaze for some
time. So he laid in a stock of hand
grenades, those little glass bottles
which are supposed to put out any fire
that may start.
One day the blaze came. The cook
started it in the kitchen. Then she
fled howling to her room and began to
pack her trunk. The wife prides her-
self on her ability to keep her head, so
first she stepped to the telephone and
turned in the alarm, and then she went
for the hand grenades.
When the fire department did arrive,
the men found her standing over the
sideboard rummaging through the
drawers. Copious streams of water
soon drowned the blaze and ruined the
lower floor, and the department left.
Still she rummaged. Her husband
came, called by the phone girl. He saw
her there.
"Why, my dear girl," he said, "why
didn't you use the hand grenades and'
stop the fire as soon as it started?
Then the whole lower part of the house
wouldn't have been soaked."
"John," she responded icily, "if you
would just keep the corkscrew where
It belongs, I could use the horrid old
grenades. But it is gone, and how was
I to open them?"-Kansas City Jour-

Arab and the Telephone.
We had a party of Arabs along with
us and took them all over a great nCws-
paper office. Everything was wildly
astonishing to them. They had imag-
ined that the Koran contained all the
knowledge and wisdom of the world,
yet here were the telegraph, the tele-
phone. the electrotype and the printing
press. The place was a veritable en-
chanters' castle to them. They would
never have believed in the telephboie if
I had not called up their hotel and got
one of their own party at that and of
the wire.

bold as well as pious. When he heard
that his friend five miles away was
talking through the instrument, ihe

cited and yelled in a megaphone voice "

Limewater has so many uses it is
hard to classify. It is good to soften
water, to sweeten drains, to keep asilk
vessels wholesome, to make milk itself
sit well upon delicate stomachs, to test
air for excess of carbonic acid-if there
is too much carbonic acid present, the
clear limewater instantly crusts over-
to take out marks left by grease spots
which have been removed by stronger
alkalis-in fact, for so many things It

A Queer Frontier Experienee.
In narrating the frontier experiences
of "The First White Baby Born In tie
Northwest" in The Ladies' Home Joir-
nal W. S. Harwood tells of a queer ex-
perience that befell the family in th
first year after settling on a farm aF
removed from the settlements.
The winter had been unusually loiog
and severe, and their stock of pro*+'
sions ran low. It was a long distanceto
the nearest base of supplies, and com-
munication with the outside world lad
been cut off. Indians in the neighbor-
hood one night broke into the granm ry
where the wheat was stored and st'le
a quantity. In doing this a la ge
amount of broken glass became miyed
with the wheat which the Indians I ft,
so for many days, amid much me ry
story telling andl many a joke ue
laugh, in spite of the serious situat n,
the family gathered about a large tal)le
in their living room and spent he
short winter days picking over Phe
wheat, kernel by kernel, in order, too
free it from the pieces of glass. *,
For this wheat stood between tl+em
and starvation, and none of its *re-
cious kernels must be lost. Their st4ck
of flour had long since wasted away,
as had most of their food supplies, so
they boiled and ate the wheat without
grinding. Relief reached them jusi in
time to prevent a sad ending to thelex-

Sergeant Kelly of the Irish bar In the
early years of the'nineteenth century
used to indulge in a picturesque elo-

line of argument and would always
fall back on the word "therefore,"
which generally led his mind back to
what he had Intended saying. Some-
times, however, the effort was almost

Cleaning Paraitare.
Where a piece of furniture is very
much soiled and requires to be cleaned
and polished, first wash it thoroughly
with warm soapy water, washing only
a small surface at a time and drying it
quickly by rubbing it hard with a flan-
nel. Mix together one pint of linseed
oil and a half pint of kerosene, wet a
flannel with the oil mixture and rub
the cleaned furniture. Rest half an
hour before taking a fresh piece of
flannel and then by vigorous rubbing
polish the wood antil It shines like
glass. This will not injure the nicest
wood and is an easy method of keeping
furniture bright. The odor soon disap-
pears if the windows are left open.

on his coach on the clubhouse lawn.
"I'll just take a little of the conceit

Lorillard to Wright Sanford, Newbold

congenial spirits. They started for the
ring together.
"I'll lay $10,000 on my horse at that
price, Kelly," said Mr. Lorillard In his
princely fashion, expecting to see Kelly
wilt and refuse to take the wager.
"Certainly, Mr. Lorillard." Then
turning to his sheet writer, Kelly said:
"$25,000 against $10,000, Pierre Loril-

obliged to you, Mr. Lorillard; very

of his narrow escapes from a friend's

camping and hunting for several days
in a sort of paradise valley. One day.
during a long ride on horseback, we
had seen a great many rattlesnakes
and killed a few, an exceptional ex-
perience. That night my cousin woke
up and saw, by the light of the moon, a
big rattler crawling across my chest.
He lay for a moment fascinated, hor-
ror struck, watching the sinuous curves
of the reptile.
"Then he quietly reached for his six
shooter, but he could not see the rep-
tile's head, and he moved nearer, noise-
lesily, yet quickly, dreading some
movement on my part that should pre-
cipitate the very thing he dreaded, and
then he saw that it was not a snake at
all--only the black and yellow stripe of
my blanket, which gently rose and fell
as I breathed. Had he fired-well, it
might have beenW-bad for me, for he
confessed that b nd shook."

An Ingenious Treatment by Which
Drunkards are Being Cured Daily
in Spite of Themselves.

No Noxious Doses. No Weakening of
the Nerves. A Pleasant and Posi-
tive Cure for the Liquor Habit.

It is now generally known and
understood that Drunkenness is a dis-
ease and not weakness. A body filled
with poison and nerves completely
shattered by periodical or constant use
of intoxicating liquors, requires an
antidote capable of neutralizing and
eradicating this poison, and destroy-
ing the craving for intoxicants. Suf-
ferers may now cure themselves at
home without publicity or loss of time
from business by this wonderful
"HOME GOLD CURE," which has
been perfected after many years of
close study and treatment of inebri-
ates. The faithful use according to
directions of this wonderful discovery
is positively guaranteed to cure the
most obstinate case, no matter how
hard a drinker. Our records show the
marvelous transformation of thou-
sands of drunkards into sober, in-
dustrious and upright men.
This remedy is in no sense a nostrum,
but is a specific for this disease only,
and is so skillfully devised and pre-
pared that it is thoroughly soluble and
pleasant to the taste, so that it can be
given in a cup of tea or coffee with-
out the knowledge of the person tak-
ing it Thousands of drunkards have
cured themselves with this priceless
remedy, and as many more have been
cured and made temperate men by
having the "CURE" administered by
loving friends and relatives without
their knowledge in tea or coffee, and
believe to-day that they discontinued
drinking of their own free will. DO
NOT WAIT. Do not be deluded by ap-
parent and misleading improvement.
Drive out the disease at once and for
all time. The "HOME GOLD CURE"
is sold at the extremely low price of
one dollar, thus placing within the
reach of everybody a treatment more
effectual than others costing $25 to
$50. Full directions accompany each
package. Special advice by skilled
physicians when requested without
extra charge. Sent prepaid to any part
of the world on receipt of One Dollar.

An Ant For a ret.
One of the queerest little pets ever
seen is the tame ant belonging to a well
known scientist. This man keeps tribes
of ants in nests which he has made
himself and feeds them with honey or
sugar through a tube that connects
with the nests. One day he saw that
one of the ants kept coming into the
tube to eat up the honey in the glass
bulb at the end. When he took out the
cork that closed the bulb, the insect
came to look for the food, and he offer-
ed It some honey on the point of a
needle, says the New York Tribune.
The ant shrank back at first, then
drew nearer, feeling about with its an-
tenname, until it reached the needle.
Soon it learned to take the honey off
its keeper's finger, although ants are
among the most timid of living things,
and a new odor or the least movement
outside their nests usually drives these
little insects away.
This ant is now so tame that it quits
the bulb as soon as the cork is removed
and goes to find the honey on the sci-
entist's finger. When its meal is over,
it does not try to hurry away, but
waits till its master lifts it on a bristle
and carries it back to its nest.

Lord* Seutbhey Guilmete.
The most eccentric action of an eccen-
trie man was Lord Southey's cool ar-
rangement for suicide by means of a
guillotine. He had a magnificent one
erected In the drawing room of his
house la the Rue du Luxembourg at
Paris. The machine was of ebony in-
laid with gold and silver, the frame-
work carved with artistic skill, the
knife, sharp as a razor, was of polished
and ornamented steel Preparing for
death, his lordship had his hair cut
close, and, clothed in a robe of white
silk, he kneeled upon the platform
under the knife before a mirror and
pressed the spring which should release
the knife. But the spring failed to
work, and the would be suicide decided
to give the guillotine to a museum in-
stead of making a second attempt to
end his life. It is said that he made
an annual pilgrimage to see the guillo-
tine until the end of his life.
Laughter Saved the Ship.
Humor has been credited with the
saving of many things, but perhaps
never before has a ship been saved by
its judicious application. In a great
storm many years ago a ship's crew
were all at prayers, when a boy burst
into a tit of violent laughter. Being re-
proved for his ill timed mirth and asked
the reason for it, he said, "Why, I was
lalghtling to think what a hissing the
boatswain's red nose will make when It
cones in contact with the water." This
ludicrous remark set the crew laugh-
nlg. inspired them with new spirits,
and by a great exertion they brought
the vessel safely into port.-Liverpool

Crying and Groalnng.
According to a French. physician,
crying and groaning in pain are na-
ture's own methods of suldulng the
keenness of physical suffering. He
thinks that men should frely relieve
their sufferings in this wa) and that
crying in children should not be re-
pressed, as in doing so serious conse-
quences may be engendered.

Lycurpus being asked wiy, in his
laws, hi had set down no punishment
for Ingratitude, answered, "I have left
it to the gods to punish."

When Harry Was fhe Fashloem.
The following extract; the Lon-
don Times of May 14, 1801, gives an
Interesting picture of the good old
days: "It is now the high bhion to
run, or at least to trot, th tough the
streets at a rate of six miles an hour.
A running walk is absolutely eceary
for any young man who has the least
pretension to ton. You must ounge in
a hurry and saunter with epedition.
It is an old proverb, the more ste the
worst speed, but Bond stret daily
shows us the more hurry t less to
do. When we see our Idle y ths rid-

Natural Waters.
All natural waters contain a greater
or less amount of mineral matter In so-
lution. Rain water has the smallest
percentage of solid impurities of any, .
and therefore it is taken as the stand-
ard variety of soft water.
The terms soft and hard, however,
as applied to water are scientifically
considered purely relative.
Water is usually reckoned to be
"soft" when it contains less than one
five-thousandth part of its weight of
mineral ingredients and "hard" when it
contains more than one four-thou-
Soft water has the property of easily
forming a lather with soap and is
therefore suitable for washing pur-
poses, while hard water will only form
a lather, and that imperfectly, with
considerable difficulty.
A mineral water has more than one 4
two-thousandth of its weight of nat- !
ural dissolved solids, and a medicinal
water is a variety of mineral water
containing a varying percentage of dis-
solved natural solid or gaseous drags.
