That I Had to stop picking the
enemy off--
Nothing would check it. I'd cough
all the night,
&nd rise at dawn, looking much
like a fright.
Then at last, when confined to a
hospital room,
I thought that Consumption had
settled my doom.
But a comrade, God bless him,
brought about my recovery
By urging the use of Dr. King's
New Discovery.

She Is melest, but not bashful,
Free ajd easy, but not bold;
Like an apple ripe and mellow,
Not too young and not too old;
Half inviting, half repulsing,
Not advancing and not shy;
There is mischief in her dimple,
There is danger in her eye.
She has studied human nature;
She is schooled in all the arts;
She has taken her diploma
As the mistress of all hearts
She can tell the very moment
When to sigh and when to smile;
0, a maid is sometimes charming,
But the widow all the while.
Are you sad ? How very serious
Will her handsome face beco'-n
Are you angry? She Is wret ,,
Lonely, friendless, tearful, dumb!
Areyoumirthful? How ;eip laughter,
Silver sounding, will ring out!
She can lure and catch and play you,
Ae the angler does the trout,
Ye old bachelomn of forty,
Who have grown so bald and wise;
Young Americans of twenty,
With the loc looks in your eyes;
You may practice all thelessons

Who could win and fool you al.

Mrs. Mary A.*Wheeier, of Rock.
ford, Ill., writes: "A very severe
attack of the Grip left me with
one lung effected, and a monstat
and distressing cough which my,1
doctor could not cure, but after
taking one bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery, I was entirely
cured." This grand remedy has
no equal for ctwing Grip and any
bronchial trouble it has caused.

it blessed his home, S. M. Dailey
of Mayview, Mo., write: "Let me
add a few words in favor of Dr.
King's New Discovery. I believe
it's the best cough rli dicine ever
made. For curing a bad cough,
cold or lung trouble it has no equal.
For 30 years it has been almost
constantly in my home, and as a
druggist, I have always found
that, when once introduced in a
family, it has gained another per.

proves conclusively that this
glorious cure has won it's place
as the American household god.

Horses, as a rule, are particular
docile and so it is not surprising to
find instancesof friendship between
them and smaller animals, though
oocassionally thd choice of their
companions is not a little strange.

tion existing between horses and
cats, the most famous beirg that
between the Godolphin Arab and
a black cat, which on the death of
his equine friend refused to leave
the body, and on being driven away
retired to a hayloft, refused food
and died of a broken heart.
More strange, however, was a
case, the tru'h of which is vouched
for, in which a horse struck up an
acquaintance with a hen and dis.
played immense satisfaction when-
ever she came into his stall and
rubbed against his legs, clucking
greeting to her friend.
Dogs and horses generally get
on well together, but the following
story from Manchester proves that
in some cases the friendship is
something more than a mere toler.
action of each other. A carriage
horse, accompanied by his stable
companion, a retriever dog, to
which he was exceedingly attached,
was drinking at a trough near the
exchange. While the dog was
waiting for his fridd to finish his
draught a large mastiff picked a
quarreLith him which ended in a
eight. The mastff, as may be sup-
and the retriever was severely bit-
ten. The horse, the moment he
heard his friend's cry, broke from
f bc man .wh was holding him,
hurried to the rescue, and after
kicking the mastiff across the
street, returned to the trugh and
finished his drink.

Men of Action and Age Limits.
The six great commanders who
have won the Spanish war for us
are all men in late middle life, as
we commonly reckon these things.
The youngest of them are Schley
and Sampson, each 58 years old.
Dewey is 61, nearing the age fixed
upon-perhaps unwisely-for re-
tirement. Of the army men only
one-Miles-is under 60, and he is
59. Wheelen is 62 and Shafter 63.
Yet the way' iu which these men
fought the wqr was almost boyish
in its enthusiasm, its daring, its
dash, and its confidence. Is not
the rule of ,tirement for age ill-
founded b~hl in the army and
navy? A hundred years ago a
man begail to bo old at 60, but it
is not so now. It is about that age
that discretion reinforc'es devotion
and makes the great mania in every
walk of life. In the army, navy,
Senate, Cabinet, banking-house,
business office, railroad enterprise,
and everywhere else the majority
of men of greatest power and use-
fullness are probably between 55
and 65 years of age. Iismarck,
Gladstone, Von Moltke, William
I, of Germany, Cavour-the best
work of all these was done after
the half century had been long
passed. So, too, with our own Ed-
munds, Sherman, Hoar, Justice
Field, John Marshall, and the rest.
Every man is at his best when the
time of his fullest maturity comes,
and with the great increase in
longevity and a wiser living that
time comes later than it did. Many
of the best men in our army, for
example, the men best qualified to-
day to lead armies and conduct
campaigns, are on the "retired list,"
merely because they havepassed an
arbitrarily fixed age.-New York

There is a Baptist minister in
Michigan, who knows that Dr
King's New Discovery may have a
priceless value beyond thepowerof
dollars to measure, in fact that it's
worth may be only estimated by the
worth of a life it has saved. He i
Rev. J. Gunderman, who was the
Baptist minister at Rives Junoe
tion, Mich., when his wfte had a
severe attack of Grip, followed b3
Pneumonia. During nioe week
that she ws unable toleave her bed
she suffered all the unspeakable
agonies of this terrible malady, and
would have died but for this in
vincible cure. Of her frightful
cough Mr. Gunderman wrote: "She
hadterrible paroxysms of coughing
lasting two or three hours, until it
seemed she would die in one oi
them. A friend recommended Dr
King's New Discovery. It was
quick and highly satisfactory in re,
sults, allaying the irritation and
inducing free expectoration. It's,
a pleasure tQ recommend such a
valuable medicine as the results it
the case of my wife were marvellous.'
In the face of such positive and re
liable evidence could any one doub
the life-saving virtues of this grand
cure. Resolve to-day, as you value
the health of your home never te
be without it,

The waves of the Indian Ocean I
in a strong west wind are 800 to
400 feet long and sixty feet high,
and have a speed of 83 miles an
hour. Such a wave weighs 864 tons
to the foot. If a ship 600 feet long
lies in the trough of the sea, a wave
sixty feet high hurls against it
21.,400 tons, move tlun nineteen
times its ownweight. This weight
does not fall upon the ship 4t sea,
because its buoyancy enables it to
rise, but if it drifts upon the lee
shore the power of a succession of
218,400 ton blows will tear to pieces

Repels Deadly Attack.
Charles Davis of Bowerston,
Ohio, had a great opportunity to
test the value of many of the so
called "best" throat and lung cures,
but he don't believe in experiments
now. He has proved there is one
medicine for such troubles so vastly
superior to all others that they can
not be compared with it. He writes:
"I have suffered severely from
lung trouble for two years, and
have tried almost every remedy,
but received no benefit until I used
Dr. King's New Discovery. Found *
instant relief, but continued to use
it until all the trouble left me. I
can heartily recommend it to any..
sufferer from lung trouble."

While it is known that the Am.
azon, in South America, is the
largest rives in the world, but few
people have an idea of its enormous
size. It is 100 miles in width at
its mouth. The distance from the
source of the Amazon in the Andes
to the Atlantic ocean is 2,000 miles
in a direct line, but by the course
of the rivernearly 4,000 miles. The
Amazon drains an area of 2,500,000
square miles (ten times the area of
France), and in connection with
the river and its tributaries there
are said to be 50,000 miles of navi-
gable waters, one-half of which are
suitable for -steam navigation by
large vessels. The number, length
and volume of the Amazon's tribu-
iaries are in proportion to its mag-
nitude. More than 20 superb
rivers, 1,000 miles and upward in
length, pour their waters into it,
and streams of less importance are
numberless. At the junction of
the Yucayali with the Amazon a
line of 50 fathoms does not reach
the bottom, and in breadth it is
more like a sea than a river. The
longest tributary, the Maderia, has
a length of 2,000 miles.

A lawyer was cros-questioning

Now, for ever and a day-
