aiul lirst engineer were also killed, and
soon after the steamer struck she went
down in 4.36 fathoms of water. Nearly

earthly howls, tore off his clothes until not
as much remained on as a fashionable na

threw himself down on the ground ( dry
as himself) and struck out for a swim.
Thinking he needed some water a pail of
aqueous fluid was brought and thrown
over him, and as he did not seem to make
headw-ay it was thought necessary to get
up a little steam; and so, mistaking his
long flowing beard for dry brush, .1 lighted match was applied. By a great effort
the flames were smothered, but not until
the major part of them were gnne and
one ear partly cooked. It would have
been much better to have notified thc policeman who would doubtless have provided him quarters in an apartment sometimes used as a morgue, where he would j
at least have made less of an exhibition

J une 3rd. 1895. LADY ALYMER.
Lord Aylmer waa sitting alone in his library, smoking a cigarette, aud wondering
what answer Dick would bring him, when
he thunigM proper to oome again to give in
hia decision.
Be wai a handsome old mnn, not so very
old in years, but aged in wickedness. A
handsome man itill, with aquiline features,
a flushed (ace and a goodly crop of while,
early hair. Vour 6rst thought on looking
at h.*m wm, "What a charming old gentle*
tiinu I" your second, "What a pair of steely
���yes 1" your third, '-What a Mephistophc*
lu 1 Yea, without the shadow oi a doubt,
Lord Aylmer wu a wioked man, with a
bad heart filled to the brim, and running
over with all manner of evil.
They say, you know, that women novelist! always make their heroines all good,
till they are as insipid as the dummies in a
tailor's window; or else that they go tithe other extreme, and make their villains
auuh unmitigated villains that it is impoaai*
ble to find one single ray of virtue where*
with to redeem their character from its
inky pall of utter blackness. But let u.e
tell you that if all the women novelists who
write sioriei in the English language were
to concentrate their efforts upon the task
of trying to depict the villainy of Loid
Aylmer'a natural depravity, I am afraid
that in the end they would have to call in
the aid of their masculine confreres to adequately complete the portrait. For the
noble lord was all bad, thoroughly bad���
what up in the North country they cull
"bad, core through." Yet he had*a delightful manner when he chose, and in early
middle age had made a genuine love-match
with a beautiful young woman at least j
sixteen yeara younger than himself���a '
penniless ap well ae a beautiful young
woman, upon whom he had lavished so i
much love and attention that within three
months of hie marriage hia love had burned j
Itself out and was as dead as any dead;
volcano. A few weeka later, Lord Aylmer >
practically separated himaelf from hiB wife, [
although they continued to share the f
aame house, and he appeared before the
world as much as possible aa if no breach j
had ever been opened between them.
Not by Lord Aylmor's desire, this���oh 1 I
no, but because her ladyship had never been j
so genuinely in love with him aa he had
been with her, and waa moreover perfectly
ilive to the solid worldly advantages of j
heing Lord Aylmer'a wife, the mistress ot j
Aylmer'a Field and of the handsome town '
house iu Belgrave square.
" Of course, I know that there are others," she Baid iu reply to a dear friend, who
thought it her duty to open this young
wife's eyes, " aud, of course, I know that
Aylmer want* te get rid of me ; but I don't
mean to be got rid of, and I put up with j
the othera because I think doing so the
leafat of two evils. There is only one Lady
Aylmer, and the ia a atrong aud healthy
young woman, who means to be Lady Aylmer for nt least fifty yeara longer. Yes, 11
know, my dear, all that you feel about it. '
1 quite appreciate your .feeling toward me,
01), yea ! it was your duty to tell me, but I
am not going to cut myself out of all that
makes life worth living, just to oblige a
husband who haa got tired of me in three
months.1' |
To thia decision Lady Aiymer had from
that time forward kept most rigidly. Ae
far aa her husband wan concerned, nothing
seemed to annoy her, and whenever she
wished to do so and con<leacended to iry to
get her own way by means of a little Battery, she generally succeeded; and now that
Lord Aylmer had got into the "sixties," she
was simply a stately, even-tempered, iron*,
willed and exceedingly healthy woman, who '
looked u if Bhe meant to live to bi ninety.
It was partly on the subject of hia wife's
extreme healthiness that Lord Aylmer waH
thinking that morning as he smoked hia
cigarette and tried to as-sure himself that
the twinges in his left foot were merely a
sign of a coming shower and uothiug in the
world to do with gout at all. And juat aa a
worse twinge than usual made him wince
and shiver, the door opened gently aud a
man-servant made his appearance.
"Mr. Aylmer is here, my lord," he said,
"Will jour lordship see him?"
"Certainly, of course," exclaimed his
lordship.    "Show him here at once,"
The man retired, and in a minute or two
returned with Dick, who said "Good-
morning" to his uncle with an air of cheerful civility.
"U'gh ["granted the old lord, "morning.
Well r
"Well, sir," said Dick, " I have thought
the matter over, and although I have not
and never have had any wiah to go to India,
I have decided that it will be best for me to
accept tlie appointment you were good
enough to gut fur me,
"Oh 1���er, I'm glad you'vo come tc your
Hcnacs ut last,*' said the old lord a shade
moro trrncimiHly. "Well, you had better
go ami aee lUrry Boynton about it���that
will be ibe huat. And then you'll have to
aet your afTaira put in order, make your
will and all that." ���
"I have made my will," said Diek, j
promptly, "aUbnugh it's true I haven't ;
very muoh to make It for*"
"Ah I that's good���those thinga ought
alwayB to iin done before they are wanted.
By 'he bye, Dick, aro you hard up or anything of that kind?" Do you want any
money ?"
"No, air, thanks. I could do with a
hundred or two, of course���who couldn't!
But I am not in debt or anything of that
The old lord caressed his white mustache and looked at hia heir with a aort of
comical wonder, "Ton my soul I" he remarked, "1 can't teli how you do it,1
"Bht" said Dick, uot understanding,
���and in fact not interested in his uncle's
"Well, how do you do it? Expensive
regiment���flat in Palaoe Mansions���Riviera, ttPd all the re?t."
Dick shrugged bia shoulders, "Well*
sir, 1 don't owe a penny iu the world, .' g ve
von my wocd."
"��4h I    M��.   Harris  mast be a  young
lady of very moderate desires," said Lord
Aylmer, lighting another cigarette, "Have
one ?"
"No, thank vou, air," returned Diok.
"And what witl become of Mrs. Harrie
when you are eone to India, eh ?" the old
man asked with a great uir of interest.
"Well, sir, said Dick, "I alwayB make it
a rule never to talk about my friends'
private a-'aira, even wheu 1 happen to
kuow thei'. "
"You won't tell me," Lord Aylmer chuckled. "Oh, very well, very woll, never
mind. I can take a hint as well aB anybody."
"When it suits your purpose," Dick's
thoughts ran, as he wu toned the haudsome,
wioked old face.
Thru he got up from his ohair. " If you
don't want me any longer, Bir, I shall go
am) pay my respects to the lady. By*thc
bye, I hope you are leaa anxious about her
than yon were a short time ago."
Lord Aiymer jumped up in a fury and
Stamped hiB gouly foot hard upon the
floor. " Damme," he cried, ** that woman
ta like an iudian-rub* er ball, aud as bard
as nails iuto the hei gain,"
" Then Bhe is better*," said Dick, with
an air of profound and anxious interest.
" Better 1" Damme," the old savage
cried,"she's outrageously well,air. Damme,
her   healthiness   ia positively aggresive."
" But that muBt be a great relief to your
mind, sir,'' aaid Dick with perfeot gravity,
" Belief!" tbe othei echoed, then seemed to recollect himself a little. "Ah I
yes, yes, of course���to be sure. Well, go
and see her. I dare aay you will find her
in the boudoir."
Dick felt himself dismissed with a wave
of the old lord's band, and being never
very anxious to remain in hia presence, ho
betook himself away, and went to find her
ladyship. But Ludy Aiymer was not in
the bouse���had, in fact, been gone some
time before he reached it; so Dick jumped
into a cab and went b&ck to Palace Mansions to Dorothy, who met him with a uew
" Dick, darling," she said, " I know that
you are worrying about me, aud what I
shall do when ycu are gone aud I have
thought of something."
"Ves. Have you thought that, after all
it would be safe for you to go right out
and riBk everything?"
"No, because you do not go till September, and by then I shall have got very near
to the time. No, it is not that at all ; but
you will have leave until you Bail, won't
you ?"
"Then might we not to go sea for a
month. 1 am pining for a breath of sea air,
and it will be good for you, too."
"That is easy enough. Where shall we
go ? Tenby���or would you rather be nearer
to Qraveleigh,"
"We could not go to any of tin places
near Graveleigh,Dick���I should be meeting
people there."
"Ves ; hut we might go to Overstrand
or Cromer, or go down to one of the little
quiet places near Ramsgate, Why, if you
like, we might even go to Ramsgate or
Margate itaelf."
"I don't in the least care where!" Dorothy replied. But what 1 wanted to say
is ihis���you remember my oousiu, Esther
Brand ?"
"I've heard you speak of her."
"Well, when you are gone, would you let
me write to her and ask her to come and
Btay with me till lam ready to come after
you ? She is youug aud kind, and I am
very fond of her, and altogether it would
be very dili'erent for me than if I had nobody except Barbara."
"My dearest, you shall do exactly aa you
think beat ahout that," Dick aaid, without
hesitation, "It is a good idea, and if she
iB uice and won't worry you about being
married in this way"	
"*-ihe won't kuow, dear," Dorothy oried,
"I shall ahow her my marriage-lines, and
say that you are gone, and that 1 am going
to join ynu aa soon as 1 cau."
"She will be sure to ask iny regiment."
"Not at all, Besides, you are going out
to an appointment, are you not?'
"Yes, true. Well, then, do as you
think best about it," he aaid. "Of course,
I shall be a t>reat deal easier in my mind,
and then she will be able to see you off, and
all that. Oh, yes, it will be a very good
thing in every way,*'
Dorothy elapped her hands together and
laughed quite joyously, "Oh, Dick, dear,"
she criod, "I'm ao glad you don't mind���I
feel quite brave about being left now. i do
wish, though, that you covld see Esther.
She is so tall and strong, very handsome,
smooth, dark hair and great dark eyes���
quite a girl who ought to be called Esther
or Olive. And then she has always been
rioh, and for five years she has' been absolutely her own mistress, aud has travelled
about everywhere."
"Won't ahe thioL it odd that you hava
never written to her all this time?"
"1 don't think so. Esther ii not a girl
who thanks yon for letters unless you have
something apeoial to say."
Dick put hie arm round his little wife's
waiat. " And you have something very,
very apeoial to tell her, haven't you?" he
said tenderly, then oried with an uncontrollable burst of anguish, " Oh, my love
my love, you don't kuow���you will uever
know what it will cost me to go away aud
loavo you just now, when you will want,
me moet ot all."
" Never mind, Dick," she taid, bravely,
" I am not afraid.
Looking at her, he saw that ehe spoke
the truth and only the truth���her eves
met bin, clear and true, and the smile
which played about her sweet mouth was
not marrert by any expression of the agony
which ahe had suffered during the few
previous days. A week ago Hhe hail been
more Dick'a sweetheart than hie wife ; now
she was not only his wife, but had alao in
her eyea the proud light of motherhood���
"Filled was her soul with love, and the
dawn of an opening heaven,"
Thet e ia no need tor me to tell of the
mouth wnich Dick and his wife passed
together at a at*cluded liUlo watering place
on nm Norfolk coast, nor of the scramble
which Di'k had at the last to get ready
for if appointed day oi sailing for the

awav. aud Dor ithy fouud herself left alone
in the pretty fiat,  face to face   with the
Boreet trial of her life,
A week  Wore she had written to her
cousin, Esther Brand, but she had had no
reply.    That had not surprised her much,
for   F,*,ther was a restless soul, never ao
happy aa when moving about from place to
plaee. Apart from that, London Is scarcely
the place to look for rich and idle people in
��� September, und Dorothy had addressed her
' le: ter to her cousin's hankers, knowing that
j it  would be  tbe surest and probably the
quickest wny of finding her.  Hut when Dick
. waa gone, Dorothy began to get very anx*
ions for a tetter from Eatlier, to watch for
j the post, and to  wonder impatiently what
; Esther oould possibly have done with her*
j self ami whether ahe bad got her letter or
not.    But for several daya there waa atill
I silence, and at last, just when Dorothy was
1 beginning to despair, it came,
"Here is your letter,MIbb Dorothy," cried
Barbara, hurrying into the room with it.
"Oh, Barbara!" Dorothy criod, excitedly.
In a moment she had torn it open and
was reading it aloud to Barbara. "Oh, it
is from Russia, Fancy Miss Brand being
j iu Russia, Uit'hara, and she wiya :
j "My Very Dear Little Dorothy :���So you

I have beeu saving to myself over and over
again, 'Dorothy Strode ia married���little
Dorothy has got married,'andstill I do not
in the least realize it. So you are very
happy, of course, and yoti are going to have
a baby���that Is almost an 'of course' also
And your husband Inn got a good appointment in India which ho does not dare
to refuse, That looks like bread-and*cheeae
and kiaBes, my dear little cousin. However,
not that money makea any difference to
one's happiness, and ao long aa you love
him and he loves you nothing else mattera,
money leastof all. Butwhy, my dear, have
you waited so long before you told me of
your new ties ? I have wondered so often
where yon were and what had become of
you, aod about four mouths ago 1 wrote to
! the old house and had your letter returned
by a horrid young man, David Stevenaon,
whom I disliked always beyond measure,
He informed me that you had left immediately after dear auntie's death and that he
did not know your present addreBB. 1 felt
a little anxious about you, but eminently

This letter in itself was enough to put
Dorothy into the wildest and gayest of
spirits, and Barbara was almoet as much
delighted ; for, truth to tell, the old servant had looked forward with no little dismay to the prospect of supporting ker loved
young n.istresB through her hour of lone*
liuess and trial, and was therefore greatly
relieved to find that the responsibility of
the situation would fall upon the strong
and capable shoulders of Miss Esther Brand
instead of lying upon her own weaker-ones.
"It is bo good and sweet and dear of
Esther," Dorothy repeated over and over
again. "Just like her to throw everything
else aside on the chance of being able to
do a good turn to some one in need. Now,
I don t feel half so nervous as I did,"
"Nor I," echoed Barbara speaking out of
her very heart; then she added/ with a significant smile : "Miss Esther never could
abide David Stevenson���neither could I."
Dorothy oould not help laughing, "Ah I
I tbink yon were all juat a little hard on
David. I didn't want to be Mrs. David, it
is true. But apart from that, 1 don't see
that there was so muoh amiss with him."
"H'm 1" remarked Barbara, with another
sniff, "perhapa not. But for all that, Miss
Dorothy���Ma'am,! should say���David Stevenson was a mean boy, and I never could
abide meauness in man, woman or ohild."
"He was most generous to me," said
Dorothy, with a sigh.
"Ves, to serve his own ends," said Barbara, sharply "You may take suoh generosity as that for me. Not that I was
speaking of that, ma'am, for I wasn't, but
of the time when David was a boy���a horrid boy, who thought nothing of stealing
the best apples ana letting another take
the blame of it."
"Oh, Barbara 1 Barber* I" oried Dorothy,
"you've got hold of a wrong story, Why,
1 know that onoe when David stole some
of Auntie's applea, and young Tom Merrt-
man got the blame, David came and told
Auntie himself."
" Yes ; and for why ?" demanded Barbara, with uncompromisingsternness. "Because I happened to have got the young
limb at it aud collared him before he could
get away. ' You are stealing Miss Dims-
dale's apples, David Stevenson, I said,
laying hold of him sudden-like ; ' and you
stole them other apples that Tom Merri-
man has been sacked for,' 'And what's
that to you, you old sneak V he asked.
��� Sneak or ao sneak,' said I, 'you'll turn
out your pockets to me, my fine gentleman;
and you'll go straight up to the house and
you'll tell MiaB Dimsdale that it was you
stole Ihe apples last week, And then you'll
go and rid* Tom M-arr(man's pardon for
having let him lie under your fault,' -That
I shan't,' say he. ' Then,' says I. ' I just

" Well, so I suppose he gave in," said
Dorothy, who was deeply interested.
"Well, of courae he bad to," returned
Barbara, with practical plainness ; "bat,
all the same, he never forgave me tor having
been the one lo get the better of him, and
never forgot it, not to tbe very last day
we were at the Hall. Ah 1 Miss Dorothy,
darling,if you had thought proper to marry
David SteveuHOn, you would have had to
do without me. He never'would have had
me abotft him, and I wouldn't have taken
service under his roof���no, i.ot to save myself from ending my daya in the workhouse."
"Barbara, Barbara 1" cried Dorothy,
chidiugly, "not for me?"
"Well if you bad put it in that way,
Misa Dorothy, you might huve got over
me," tho old woman answered,
But stay 1 1 think 1 ought to say here
that, although 1 have oilled her old in
many parts of tht i story, Baibara waB not,
and ���������mid not reu-onably be called an old
woman in the common acceptation of the
word, Sbe waa a year or ao over fifty, and
a very atrong, hale woman at that, and at
this time to Dorothy she was as a very rock
and tower of strength.
Well, by virtue of theletur from Esther
Brand and in the joy of expectation at her
comintr, Dorothy passed that day with
' quite u light heart, aud even Bat down to
! thu little piano aud sang one or two of the
' songs that Dick liked best. And then she
| went to bed and slept, leaving the door
| open between her room and Barbara's for
company and Bhe dreamed, aa she alwaya
| did, about Dick,
| Nor wan it a pleasant drenm. Sbe saw
! Dick on board of a large steamer, wearing
white olothes and a sailor hat, booking very
bronzed and happy. He was leaning over
the aide of the ship, with a oiparette in his
mouth, just as she had seen him many a
time, and by his side there stood a beautiful lady���not a girl like Dorothy herself,
but a beautiful woman of about thirty years
old, such a woman as Dorothy fancied her
old friend at home, Lady Jane Stuart,
might have been at that age. They seemed
to be talking earnestly together, and after
a time���such a loug time it seemed in her
dream���Diok took one of the lady's hands
and raised it to hia lips; then Bhe lau-hed
and said something, and Dick caught her to
him and kissed heron the lips. Immediately afterward, while Dorothy, wiih frozen
lips, was gazing at them, Dick turned his
head and looked ber full in the eyes with
the glance of an utter strauger.
With a shriek, Dorothy awoke���the sun
was streaming in at the sides of the window
blinds,and Barbara waa just comingthrough
the doorway with a little tray leering
Dorothy's early cup of tea,
"Uid 1 scream, Barbara ?" Dorothy gasp*
"A bit of a ory. What ailed you.ma'am?"
Barbara ashed.
"Oh! I was so frightened���I had such a
horrid dream about the maBter. I thought"���
But Dorothy did uot complete the sentence, for Barbara put out her baud with a
horrified look. "Nay, now, Miss Dorothy,
don't tell it. Whatever you do, don't tell
"But why ?" cried Dorothy open-eyed,
"You should never tell a dream before
noon, Mias Dorothy," returned Barbara,
"Oh!" exclaimed Dorothy, "isn't it
lucky?' She knew that Barbara was a great
believer in luck, and signs and omens.
"It's fatal, answered Barbara, solemnly,
whereat Dorothy burst out laughing and the
worst feeliug-t of dread with which she had
awakened passed away,
"I think," ahe said, after breakfast,when
Barbara was clearing the table, " that I
shall put on my hat and go up to ths High
Street; I cannot finish this till I get some
more lace ;" then she held it up and showed
it off to Barbara, "Isn't it sweet?" she ex*
claimed, with intense satisfaction.
"It's lovely," returned Barbara, who was
overjoyed at the prospect of a baby, "Then
do you wish me to go with you, ma'am, or
will you go alone?
"Do you want to go?" Dorothy asksd.
"Well, ma'am, to be honest, I don't. I
want to turn the room out for Miss Esther.
You see, she may come nearly as fast as her
letter, and I shouln't like to put her into a
dirty room."
"It can't be dirty, Barbara," oried Dorothy, laughing, " because nobody has ever
slept in iU"
���'Well, ma'am," Barbara retorted. ������ 1
can't say that I know a dirtier person than
Mr, Nobody���on the whole."
Dorothy laughed. "Well, then you evidently have a lot to do, and I would just as
soon go alone. So I will go soon, before I
get tired or the day gets hot;" for.although
September was half over, the weather just
then was most sultry and trying to those
not in the best of health.
She was soon ready, and went into ths
cozy kitchen to ask Barbara is there was
anything that she wanted, but she did not
happen to want anything at alb
"Do I look all right?1'Dorothy uked,
turning herself about.
"Yes, you look very sweet this morning,
Miss Dorothy," said Barbara. "I wish the
master oould see you this minute,"
"So do I," eohosd Dorothy, promptly.
"Well, he will see me soon enough, soon
enough.    Good*by, Barbara."

in the Paris Figaro, commends the action
of the government and improves the occasion to make an eloquent plea for peace.

furtherance of these wishes. Among other
things favoring the view of the German
emperor.M. Simon instances the exceptional courtesy with whioh he and the other
French delegates were treated at Berlin
five years ago, the telegram sent to Mme.
Carnot after the assassination of her husband, and the release of the Frenoh spies
Imprisoned at Gratz. Emperor William
has been steadily gaiuing the respect and
^ good will of his great European neighbors
the last few years and there are many faots
which tend to confirm M.Simon's view of him
as a wise and able sovereign, conscientiously discharging to the best of his abilities
his high duties in the interest ofthe empire
and of the peace of Europe, Tbe hearty
participation of France in the fete of peace

The completion and opening of the Baltio

overestimate its importance in peace and
war to Germany. Had it not been that
Russia aud other European powers objected
so Germany's controlling tbe entrance to
the Baltic, Denmark would probably before
this have been merged in the German empire, Germany has, however, out the nar
row neoK of land and finds a ready outlet to
the German Ocean without asking leave of
Enrope. This new path of commerce
possesses also a historical interest and
association to England and America, which
will of itself render the Kiel celebration
interesting to all descendants of the Jutes.

Health Department.
Pure Water.
In determining the suitability of *��ater
for drinking purposes it is necessary, for
practical purposes, to ascertain not what
are its true constituents, but whether it
contains an excess of animal matter.
Of courae this rule applies only to the
��'soft" waters in general use, and not to
the "mineral" waters, which form a olass
by themselves. All "soft" waters, unless
they have been distilled, contain more or
less of the lower forms of animal and vegetable life. It is the presence of these that
gives the water its peculiar taste, just as
the peculiar taste of the so-called mineral
waters is due to the presence of different
minerals, like iron and sulphur, in solution.
These low forms of life are in themselves
of no particular detriment to the water, as
long as they temaiu healthy or are unmixed
with germs of disease. But if the water is
allowed to stand, or is contaminated by
foreign substances, it immediately assumes
a dangerous afpeot, owing to these same
low forms of matter, The greater their
number, the more dangerous does the
water finally become.
Thero are two general methods in vogue
for the purifying of water known to be
more or less polluted.
The first of these, filtration, ia employed usual'y where there are immeae quantities to be handled, as in the case of the
water supply of a oity. It cau be made as
thorough as is deaired by simply repeating the process, or by passing the water
through finer material ; and is generally
sufficiently effective.
In the household, however, this process
is not so practicable, partly for the Isok of
proper means, but more especially because,
the subject not being understood, the end
in view is defeated by the very measures
taken to seome It.
We have all noticed the little bags
of muslin whioh are often tied around the
ends of faucets, and mosl of us bave probably wondered what advantage was to be
gained from their use. All faucet-filters
are necessarily imperfect in their operation. It is possible, however, by boiling
the water, to destroy all source of danger
from any form nf animals life which may
be present.
By this method,to be sure, many of the
minerals whioh are of use will be separated
out but they will again bo taken np if the
water is allowed to cool in the same utensil
in which it has been heated. The water
should never be boiled for sny great length
of time, and should be kept oovered while
it is cooling.
Fainting Fits.
Many years ago, Bays Dr. Balfour, a
gentleman of 77 consulted me as to sever6
fainting fits to which he was liable, He
had been told by other consultants tha1
these attacks were due to fatty degenera*
tion of the heart, and that treatment would
be of no avail. I told the patient that
hearts supposed to be fatty were very often
only weak. The result of treatment was a
steady improvement in health and in power
of heartbeat, and the patient lived till 90
and did not then die of heart failure. This
ought 10 be good news to many who are in
the sere and yellow leaf. Moreover, tho
diagnosis of fatty heart Is almost impossible
during life. But numbers have weak hearts
that a coorse ot iron (alone, or with quinine),
and abundant exercise in the open air, with
a more generous diet, would entirely relieve.
The exercise must be kept up day after
day, at the same hour for a month or
months. Walking or the oyole is best, but
there must be no sprinting or straining going
up hill. Remember that the heart is a
muscular (organ, just like tbe biceps, and
can be stengthened in much the same way,
Disinfection  After Scarlet  Fever.
Experiments by Dr, William Gibson of
Campbeltown, Scotland, in disinfecting
scarlet fever patients so as to free them
from contagion before the process of des*
quamation is completed, havo resulted
successfully, according to ThePhlledelphia
Ledger. His method was to give a succession of three or four comfortably warm baths,
sometimes daily,at other times on alternate
days, using freely carbolic acid soap, and
washing the patient thoroughly from top to
toe. After each bath, except the last,
the patient was put back to the bed on whioh
he had lain with the diaeaae. After the
last bath he was taken into a olean room,
dressed with olothes free from infection,
and then allowed to mingle with the rest
of tbe family. In moet cases the body was
anointed daily with olive oil mixed with
some disinfectant. Patients with snch complications as otitis or ulcerated or suppurating throat were not subjeoted to the process.
No complications followed the cleansing
process in any oase, but convalescence
seemed tobe rather hastened than retarded.
Crocheted Insertion and Lace for

fait now-a*days; lor the guest chamber at

illustrations show a choice design to be
crocheted and made up with a stripe of

for color, some of the pretty linens embroidered with white Roman lions in an open
running pattern is quite effective. The
blue linen comes in the most delicate
shades, but it is well to he governed by

Evil Kneels et Opium llave Been Creat-
ly Exaggerated.
The report of the Royal commiasion on
the use of opium, presented to the British
Parliament last week, will much astonish
many people, but it must be accepted as the
decisive verdict of truth and science upon
this vexed subject. The enquiry was conducted on a very great scale and the decision was practically unanimous. Ovor 720
witnesaaa were examined, including IM
called at the desire of the anti-Opium
society. Every oare wu taken to obtain
lepreseutative testimony and ths oonuniw-
sion record their conviction that the evidence forms trustworthy ground for the
conclusions reached. Upon this crucial
issue, whether the nso of opium, as habitually practiced in India, ia or is not io*
jurious, the commissioners relied to a great
degree en the statements of 161 medical
witnesses. The evidence of the dootors
in the service of the Government was
practically tmant-moae. It is corroborated
by other medioal men in private practice
aud by some medical iniasiouaries. The
medical witnesses who advocated prohioi*-*
tion were few; all of them wars more
opposed to the use of alcohol than to that
of opium.    The general effect of
is declared in tho report to be tbat " the
temperate uao of opium in India should be
vie veil in the same light as tlie temperate
use of alcohol in England. Opium is harm*
ful, harmless or even beneficial, according
to the measure and discretion with which
it is used."
That is the judgment of science upon
the actual couscquenoes of the opium habit.
The natives of India, on the whole, agree with
the dootors, but they attach greater value
to the drag than ncieuce directly warrants.
It is universally allowed that the excessive
consumption of opium is an evil, though an
evil of which the effects have beon grossly
exaggerated. Opium is largely taken as a
stimulant by those past middle age. they
use it, iu the striking phrase of oue of the
witiiessess, as a prop to a falling house. In
the opinion of the great majority the native
medical practitioners and representatives of
large influential classes, this employment
of the drug ie attended by beneficial
results. Opium eatera of fifteen to twenty
years' standing appeared before the commission. They believed the habit had done
them good. Their i-ppearauce and vigor
satisfied the commiaaloners at all.events
that it had done them
Opium is also uaed as an occasional stimulant in physical emergencies. It has
been issued by medical advice to trooje
engaged in fighting and road making
among the mountains of Sikkim. It is
taken occasionally by camel drivers who
work in the extremes of heat and oold that
prevail in tlm Rajuptena deserts. Many consumer in the Punjab use tha drag in tha
winter months only. Another striking faot
about the opium habit, is that it prevails
among some ot the most manly, hand
working, thrifty races of India. The
splendid Stkb soldiers and peasants, the
active Marward traders and Rajputs ara
among tbe opium esters. Opium is consumed in the native army and tbe witnesses say does no perceptible harm and is
often beneficial. Itis used among many
of tlie natives in the public service and in
the service of railroad oompauies, planters
and mill owners. The evidence of employers is all to the same effect. Distntsaals
for intemperance in the use of opium are
practically unknown. Opium, Sir Wm,
Roberts observes,' does not appear to beget
any specific disease. Opium eaters bear
surgioal operations as well as non-oonaum-
eia, and the manager of a large insurance
company said tbat aftor twenty years'
experience his company chaiged no extra
premium on the lives of moderate opium
An Anecdote About Bismarck.
When he was a young man Bismarck was
fer some time an official reporter for one oi
tbe courts of justi **->. In those days his
temper sometimes got tbe better of him>
but, upon one occasion, at least, bis wit
saved him from disgrace. This was whon
questioning a witnesB. Tho latter made an
impudent retort, whereupon the embryo
Chancellor exclaimed, angrily, "It you are
uot moro respectful 1 sb-tii kick you oot ot
the room ! "Youug mau," said the Judge,
interrupting the proceedings- "I would
have you understand that tniu is a diguifiod
court of justice, and that it there im any

"Ah, you aes,'' Baid Bismarck to the wit-

Mr, Haslam, to whose district this enterprise is limited, has too much business sense and political acumen to give
any attention to the misguided action
of a very few gentlemen of the Nanaimo Board of Trade who are doubtless
heartily ashamed of their stupid resolution. Mr. Haslam has been a faithful
and uselul representative of the people
*>ut he could not he elected again if he
were to carry out the Board of Trade

A portion of the judiciary of this prov

Such conduct is simply scandalous. A

the judicial scold. He avoids responsibility for his often intemperate and unjust language by the shield of his judicial character. In early times this prac

It is generally supposed that thc
laws, especially those of a general nature, operate equally throughout the
Province. It is usually supposed also
lhat the legislature is thc law making power and lhat it is the duty
nl the executive branch of the government to sec that such laws as are pass
ed are made operative by proper execu
tive action, All this is a delusion in
British Columbia. If the people through
their chosen legislature make the laws,
their operation is suspended during the
pleasure of the Premier or some individ
uat. Take the Small Debts Act. It is
in operation in some portions of thc
province but not in others. In this dis
tnct we do not enjoy the benefits ol the
Act simply because the appointing power neglects the plain duty of appointing
a stipendiary magistrate. The will of
the legislature is ignored, and the manifest rights of the people disregarded.

The cantata given at Piket's hall last
Wednesday evening was very highly
successful and afforded to all picsent an
enjoyable evening. There were about 30
children who took part. They entered into the spirit of the occasion with true
childish real. Tliey showed 1I1.1Ithey had
been well drilled and thus furnished the
best possible testimonial to ihe care and
ability of Miss Tuinbull and Mr, Howell
tinder whose tu inngement lhe cantata
was conducted. The May queen on hei
throne, acied well her part as did those
who made her neat speeches and circled
about her. They were all queens by virtue of their gentle dignity, grace unci sweci
ness. Perhaps the pari which was most
enjoyed was The Light Brigade or
shall we call it the Night Brigade. It
consisted of eight lillle misses in their
charming while night dresses and snow
while caps, each bearing in her hand 11
lighted candle, and ail 111 irehing around
10 the sound of music, anil at lhe proper
period dropping off, at first by twos, and
afterwards by ones, until une little miss
alone remained; and when she blew out
her candle, lhe audience which had shown
ils appreciation during the performance n
a quiet but pleasing way now broke out in
well defined and hearty applause.
Quile a number were up from Comnx
valley, among whom tve noticed the Duncans, Grieves, Mrs. Robert Graham and
Miss McLennan.

Mr. Mclntyre occupied the chair. After
singing hymn 646, prayer was offered, followed by the singing nf hymn 148. Rev.
Mr. Mclntyre then delivered a very
thougtuful and appropriate address, A
short intermission gave an opportunity
for social intercourse and refreshments.
The ladies were liberal with their r.offec
and cakes which were of the best, and
judging by the way they disappeared,
much enjoyed. Rev. Mr. Robson was
called forward, and was met on lhe platform by Mi. Joseph Livcsley who approached from tbe opposite side, and
read in a strong voice, trembling with
emotion, the following;

Work has already been commenced In
prospecting for another shafi in the neigh
buurhoid of thc location of the portable

determined, it is supposed, by the nearness of the rock to the surface. I n excavating, a bed of fine vellow clay, eight feet
in depth, wis uncovered. This is an import int lind ind will help out the brick,
making industry here. There is plenty
of hard blue clay down the railroad bui
covered with a heavy bed of gravel and
needing to be ground fnr use. The yellow clay will be capable nf use without
grinding and may be used as a kind of
flux to the hard blue clay.
Since thc above was in type some of the
clay has been seen. It is all right apparently, but harder than at first supposed
and will need machinery to properly crush
and work it, so that itcanaot be regarded

The aunt commended her and added:
"Well, niece, bear in mind you have an
aunt whoie huaband wai a minister of the

We could uae old clo'ea too,"
Tliey afterwards received thia bundle and
made good uae of it, for ahe wai struggling
to educate her two daughters to fit thum to i
become bread-winners.
Mn. Minerva waa wont to cut olf the
legs of worn meriuo drawers and ohange
them io lhat the beat come outside. The
city niece's thing* worked over well. The
aoiled waists of worated dreaces were cut
low and hor girls wore them with guimpos.
The faded part was improved by lowing
velvet strapB acroaa. Odd waists she
fashioned from old ityle polonaises. Hie
a pity that thia pretty garment ever was
all wowed to go out of fashion; it waa
becoming, eapecially for portly matrons.
From white dresses whole front breadthi
were worn and stained, she wns able to
remove 'he front width and out them down
square in the neck, and then trimmed in
lace, hy tbe use of diamond dyes she
made faded woolens all of one color.
Mrs. Minerva has been " handy "in her
youth, and lived aoross the street from a
milliner whom she occasionally helped,
and almost, atolo her trade, Jt aftedwards
proved available in fixing over headgear
for heraelf aud relations. She always
teught her girls to wear everyday Bkirts

skirts worked ovor admirably for her
daughter!. The old, ahiney, " boiled "
Bilk waa the thing for the -present fashionable Bilk skirta. It is a good plan in a

are aix daughters. One does nothing but
keep the reat "repaired aud In good running order," as tliey say of locomotives. She

A Financier aud Editor Charged   wllli
(lie Crime.
Not tor many a day has Guthrie, Okla.,
enjoyed such a sensation as when Bhe awoke
the other morning and found two of her
prominent citizens and business men in jail
ou a charge of murder, When the body of
Frank LedgerB, a young Englishman, was
ta Hi* N frotn the Cottonwood River last
Septembor, and the Coroner's jury could
not tell after a thorough investigation what
produced death, or who the guilty parties
probably wure, itseemed that his taking oil
was destined to remain a mystery. Two
months ago came a Pinkerton detective,
sent by the liritish Government, ou the
appeul of the murdered man's parents aud
sweetheart in Birmingham, England, Aa a
result of hia woik came the arreat ten days
ago of Frank Thorpe, a negro porter, aud
three daya ago Willi un Knowles, ex-night
policeman, both as accessories to the murder.
Still the detective followed up his clews.
At midnight he secured a confession of
Bome startling fa-ita from a woman of the
town, and at 3 o'clock, wilh the Sheriff,
went to the resident of W. H. Thome and
O. C. Seeley and took them from bed and bo
jail, charged with the murder of Ledgers,
Thome ia Peaident and general manager
of the Guarantee Investment aud Loan
Company, and Seeley a prominent real estate man and publisher of Oklahoma 11*
luatrated. Thome ii an Englishman, and
the murdered man was related by marriage
to his wife, and boarded at his house at the
time of the murder. The detectives will
not give out the particulars, and the
details of evidence no far cau not be told
with certainty. They give, however, an
assurance that they have a conclusive chain
ot evidence that will implicate all the four
parties so far arrested. There are still
other person-'! who are suspicioned aa being
at least accessories after the facts, and
more arrests will follow. The theory of the
murder now ia that he was chloroformed
at Mrs. Jackson's on South Second atreet,
where the negro, Thorpe, waB porter, and
afterwards thrown into the river.
When the body was fouud a watch aud
considerable loose change was found in
the pockets, which aeemed to allay the
suspicion of robbery, but several thousand
dollars young Ledgers had brought from
England were never found.

In Frozen Labrador.
Through ita long winter Labrador iB
simply frozen out from the reat of the world,
Oue "komttick," or dog-Bled, mail, reaches
some of the more southerly settlements late
in the spring. The Moravian missionaries
at the Eskimo villages further uorth en*
deavour at least once a winter to visit by
kotritick the few scattered white settlers
within 100 miles or so of the missions*
Sometimes the komitick io overtaken by a
severe snow storm before shelter can be
obtained. Then the missionary and hi"
Eskimo driver dig a deep ditch down iu the
snow, and camp in the bottom. The gases
from the camp fire prevent the snow from
floating in, and the travellers are sheltered
from the icy blasts. At Battle Harbour,
Labrador, where there ia a church (there
are only two churches on the Labrador
u on at -south of the Moravian missions), tbey
have a public sewing-machine,ami one long
winter, when the kerosene oil supply became very low, the women gathered at the
parsonage and did their sewing by the
parsonage lamp. As the Battle Harbour
Mission is too poor to furnish the wee
church with a bell, the rector signals the
call to service with a flag.
Windbreaks  and  How to   Make
Almost every country home needs a
windbreak of trees, the exceptions being
where hills check the air current!, or
natural grove cau bo utilized for the purpose. In regions of low temperature, place
it on the cold side of the houae. In mild
latitudes place it so aa to shield the prem*
lies from the moBt prevalent and dangerous wiuda. Do not set the trees too close
to the dwelling, or the quarters of the
live stock. If less than 100 to 300 ft,
distant, the air ia elope and damp with poor
ventilation, which tends to develop disease. Ou thisaccount the minimum number
which will afford protection ia better than
a large grove. The space between the
trees and the buildings can be utilized for
a lawn, garden, or for imallfruiti, avoiding
thick letting. Admit plenty of sunlight.
It ii a vitalizer ol most auimal and vegetable life. Better have no windbreak than
one tooolosely set. If you have no tree
shelter, start one this spring. The form,
size and distance from buildings muBt be
governed by circumstances, A single row
of thickly growing evergieens���white pine,
Norway spruce, or red cedar���15 ft, apart
will suffice. Limbs will then grow close
to the ground, while if more than one row
is used, the treea will prune themselvea,
as in a forest, and in time destroy the
ellicienoy of tho windbreak. Deciduous
treeiof almost any quick-growing, hardy
variety will answer, but require more land,
a grove 50 to 100 ft. wido being necessary.

Trade In Human Hair.
There are wholesale firms in Paris which
Bond around agents in the spring to various
Bretonand other villages. Theae gentlemen
are provided with ribbons, Bilk, laces,
haberdashery, and cheap jewelry of various
kinds, paying for the maidens' glossy
tresses in these goodi or in ready money.
So far as personal beauty is concerned, these
Breton laases do not loae muoh in losing
their hair, for it is the fashion in that part
of France tor maidens to wear a close cap,
which entirely prevents any partof the hair
being soon. Some years ago the light
Herman hair was held in suoh esteem by
tho hair merchants that they gladly paid
ai much aa 8 shilling** an ounce for small
quantities of it���nearly double the
price of silver. Light hair is still collected
from Germany by agents of a Dutch company, wlio make yearly visits to various
parts of the (iermaiiia States, The black
hair imported comes mostly from Brittany
and the south of Frauce, and is, as a rule,
vory fine and silken. Within the present
ceutury the heads af hair of whole families
in Devonshire were let out by the your. An
Exetor periwig maker went around periodically, cut the locks, and oiled the ground

Dairy Barn Ventilation.
While it U safe to lay that there ii a
great deal of needless and unwarranted
! alarm concerning tuberculosis in dairy
! stock, it is not improbable that inefficient
j ventilation of farm barns is responsible for
j a large part of the disease that does exist,
It ia a matter of common observation that
, tho bonis most seriously affected have
Almost invariably been subjected to close
confinement in unsuitable quarters. Bulletin

construe)ed walls and openings of t'.ie building, in which case it will bo impossible to
maintain a suitable temperature in winter,
cr the cows must inhale the same air many
times. Air that has been onre expelled from
the Innga is unfit for the maintenance of
animal life of any kind until afresh ripply
of oxygen has been introduced. The great
detriment of confining stock in poorly-ventilated buildiugs is becoming plainly
apparent. The barn ahould be a frame
structure 40x70 feet, two and a half stones
high, aud entirely above grouud. The
Bide walls are ot 'Jx-l's upright, twenty-four
inches on centre covered outside with
aiding and tarred paper, and lined inside
with Bhiplap, thuB making a four-inch aa
space betweeu. About a dozen of theae
spaces between the studding are used for
ventilation flues. They are fitted at the
bottom on the inaide with a ventilator
register opening into the flues and from the
upper plates these flues are extended by
means of boarding up on the under side of
the rafters until they are all joined in the
triangular ventilator box shown at the
put line plates; theae boxes communicate
with the cupolas by means of wider ducts
betweeu the rafters. The cupoiai have
slatted sidei opened and closed by
means of a cord with pulley attachment
conducted to the lower floor. Th* register!
also anawer the purpose of enabling any
number of the linen to be closed when

carry upward aud some downward currents
at diliereut timea, thus maintaining a constant circulation of air. The regiiteri beiug
near the floor take the oold and impure air
out of the building from the right place,
instead of permitting the warmer air to
escape aa in the case where thore are ceiling exits. The hay chutes are alio joined
in this system of veutilation and may be
opened or closed at will. In severe weather
it becomes necessary to close a part of
the openings, thougn the temperature of
the barn rarely gets below 40 degreea even
in times ot extreme oold.
This aystem provides an ample aupply of
pure air, is not expensive, and may be ap*
plied in any well constructed barn. A
cement floor and cemented sower pipe
drainage, with hell trap openings, gives
this barn substantially perfect sanitary
conditions. The cement floor gives good
satisfaction without plank covering for all

A legend ii told concerning the Russian
Tsar, Ivan the Fourth, This monarch began to reign in his boyhood, and was
remarkable for his cheerful amiability. An
old chronicler describes him and the tsarina
as "two blessed children, beloved of Cod
and men."
At the age of twenty Ivan lost hia wife.
Then bis character underwent a sudden,
inexplicable transformation. He became a
pitiless monster, murdering thousands of
hia subjects to gratify his thirst for blood.
He is known in Russian history as Ivan the
The legend states that the Angel o
Death, when it claimed his wife, was sent
alao to Ivan's door, but that an evil genie
entered his chamber at the same moment,
and offered to give him long Life on condition that he Bhould become itu slave. Ivan
consented, and was given a bottle containing a liquid of which he was to swallow a
fow drops on the first day of each year.
"Whenever he drank of this liquid," says
the tradition, "it filled hiB soul with evil,
as a drop of the cuttlefish's secretion turns
a cup of water black. Each year Ivan
grew more vile, until theie waa not an
atom of his body or heart which belonged
to God."
The genie probably was Ivan's own besetting ain, and the elixir waa liquor or
some other vicious indulgence; but the
facts of his life remain no lesa mysterious
and terrible.
As singular a change in the other direction took place in John Newton, who
records that when he was serving in au
African slave-ship, addicted to the lowest
vices, he resolved to give himself back to Uod,
After three years he became a minister of
the Gospel, preaching both by a mighty
eloquence of worda aod a holy life, "I

word, of the water of life.

There are many curious trades in the
world, hut the most strange must surely he
the " artificial mautacture of wild men."
Vet a well-known English doctor in China
has just certified from his own personal
exporieoce that this art is regularly prac*
biied In the Flowery Kingdom,
First a youth is kidnapped, then hit by
bit ho is Hayed alivo, aud thu akin of a dog
or bear grafted piece by piece upon him,
His vocal chords arc noxt destroyed by the
action of charcoal to make him dumb ; and
the double purpose of causing " etiolation'
of the skin and utter degradation of the
mental faculties is effected by keeping him
immured in a perfectly dark holo for a
number of years. In fact, by treating him
like(a brute for a sufficiently long time he ia
made into one. At last ho is exhibited to
the entirely creduloua Chinese as a wild
man of the woods, and liis possessors- reap
a rich harvest.
The priests, it aeema, are adepts at tho
art When a kidnapper, however, is
caught by the people he is torn to pieces,
and when the authorities got him they

Such is life under the rule of the Son of
When the routine businesa oi the regular
Saturday night meeting of the Limekiln
club had been disposed of, Brother Gardner
arose and aaid : ���
"I hold yere in iny hand sartin resolu-
shuns on de death of Brudder Abraham
Lightfoot Green, which sad event took
place five days ago. Brudder Green was an
active member of dia club. While he didn't
do much talkiu' no one could doubt hii
interest in all de purceedin'i. To a lartin
extent be hid hii light undor a bushel, but
whatever work wai assigned him to do he
did it faithfully. Dim reiolushuni hev bin
drawed up by a committee. Dey start r���
by aayiu1 dat Providence has seen fit to
remove from our midst a fond father, ft
luvin' husband an' a dearly beluved brudder
*���' I RUN OUT *ID A CLUB."
of dis olub. While I am awar' dat sioh ara
de custom I can't abide no sioh hypooriiy,
"In de iuit place, Brudder Green was not
a fond father. He had Beben ohil'en in de
fam'ly, an' he was arrested about twice a
month fur lickin' 'em wid a rawhide. I'm
often heard him wiah dem seben chlU'en
would git blowed up in a heap on a steamboat. In de second place, he was not a
luvin' husband. When he wasn't engaiged
iu ruuniu' away from hia wife, she was en-
gaiged in runnin' away from him, He libed
jist back of my cabin, an' it waa a cold day
when he an' de ole woman didn't hev a row.
" I wish to state dat Providence didn't
see fit to remove Brudder Greeu. Providence wasn't around dar at all an' didn't
hev uuffin' to do wid hii removal. He
removed hisielf. He got tr.ad at de ole
woman kaae ihe coul in't wash a blackberry stain outer hia white vest, an' he
went out into his ga'den and devoured nine
large cowcumbers in a new state an* wid*
outpeelin'. Dat night hewastooken wid
itch paim dat he jumped ober a fence 'lehen
feet high an' died befo' he could make hii
will. Sioh things ahould not be laid off on
to Providence, Providence might have
sunthin' to do wid a pusson fallin' off a barn
or gittiu' run ober by a butcher cart, but
she draws de line at cowcumnera widout
auy salt on 'em.
"I notice dot deBe reaolushuns go on to
say dat Brudder Green was honest an upright in his dealin's wid his feller men. It
am customary to put dat in, but I feel dat
de truth orter be stated once in awhile.
As a matter of faot Brudder Green waa
alius borrowin' money an was nebber known
to pay any back. He owed hii groeer an
butcheran landlord. If h? owed a debt of $10,
hia creditor was willin' to sell do claim fur
10 per cent, of its face value. He borrowed
$a oi me ober two y'ars ago, an though I
put in 600 days of hard work tryin' to get
it baok de debt was nebber paid an haa
gone to de grave wid him. One night I
heard a commoshun in my ga'den. I had
fa-teen of de nicest, biggest Summer
squashes yo' eber aaw an I run out wid a
club to find dat Brudder Green had gobbled
up 'lehen of 'em au cum baok fur de odder
three. He waa in bed fur two weeks arter
I got frew wid him, an it was giben out
around that he had been aunstruck,
���'I also notice a reaoluahun to the effeck
dat wo extend our heartfelt sympathies to
hia bereaved fam'ly and feel to pint out tt*
'em dat our loss am Brudder Green's gain.
De fam'ly am not bereaved. I was ober
dar dii arternoon au found de ohiil'on
gallopin' up and down and takin' heapi o
cumfurt, and de ole woman told me she
had all de waahin she could do and de best
kind of anappetito fur meat and taten.
When I spoke of de late departed, she
said she could git a better man inside of
fo' weeka and she frowed out a strong
hint dat $2 in cash would do hor mo' good
dan a dozen resolnihuni of sympathy.
"My fren's I shall lay de*e resolushuns
undor de table, and onless my deoiihun am
appealed from dey will not- be heard of
agin. Brudder Abraham Lightfoot Green
am dead. De world am no better and no
wun fur it. He was not too good���not ton
bid���jilt about like tho rest of us. He
was honest when ho had to be, an whon he
saw an openiu' io beat his feller man he
took advantage of it, Ho waa a fa'r sample
o' millyons of men an '-h sioh lie libed an
died, 1 am perfockly willin for the olub
to vote lnonuy to buy him a tOOlbltun, but
let it bo a plain one, and let do epitaph be

up de usual emblem of mournin in Paradise

shall have no uso fur rcsolushun's. Brudder
Green was bo'u an libed au died. He
had his streaks of goodnoaa and his streaks
of badness. He waa no better and no
wusa dan de aiverage. While wo am
sorry he's gone, wo at do same timo realize
that he wasn't of much accent whill

occur every day points a moral that every
woman in the land ahould take to heart.
Here wu a woman in the prune of life,
pursued by that sentinel whioh sicks iti

From a living pioture ihe became, in leas

four letters writton by Mre. William
Hoover, of Bellvllle, 0.: Mra. Caroline
King, of New Boston, 0.; Mrs. S. A. Monroe, Baltimore, Md.; F, F. Sargent, of
United States Artillery School, Fortress
Monroe, Va. Theie letters ar-* printed
helow. They told how cures had been
found for casei like her own���cases of
���- female weakness" and shattered health
that had almost lapped life away. With
*o more hope than that whioh prompts the
drowning man to oaioh a itraw���for she
firmly believed herself inourable, just as
teus of thousands of women believe them*
lelvei incurable���she followed the advice
contained in these letters. The result is
best told in the woman's own words. " In
lesa than five months," ihe writes, " I
returned to my friends in the East, as well
ind strong in body ud mind and as happy
ind free from pain as any woman in the
world. I had gained nearly thirty pounds
in weight and was so changed in face and

happiness to Dr, Pierce i Golden Medical
Diacoviry and Doctor Pierce's Favorite

This woman's case, remarkable aa it may
seem, is not an exceptional one. Thousands
and thousand! of juat suoh curea havo been
made in every State by these self-same
special remediea far women's peculiar
disorder! and diaeaies.
Every woman in this country ought to
know that there ii an institution iu thiB
country where diseases peculiar to their
���ex have for nearly thirty years been
made a specialty by aeveral of the
physician! aud surgeons connected therewith. This institution is the Invalid!*
Hotel ami Surgical Inatitute, at Buffalo,
N. Y. In treating thouiandi ot cases at
that famous sanitarium, there have been
perfected mediolnoi whioh form a regular, scientific course of treatment for these
prevalent and most diitreiiing ailments.

remedies to the afflicted, and (m* many years
thereafter, tliey were aold under a po-aitlv*
guarantee of giving entire satisfaction, in
every case of a disease for which they are
re commanded. So uniformly successful did
they prove in curing diaeaws, derangements
and weaknesses of women, that claims for
the return of money paid for them were
exceedingly rare; but.aince the manufactur
era and proprietors of theie remedies oau
uow refer to thousands of noted cures
effected by them in every part of the land,
and in many foreign oountries, they believe
this pait record a sufficient guarantee of
their great value ai curative agenti, and,
therefore, they now rett their claims to the
confidence of the afflicted solely upon their
paat record. There ii acarcely a neighborhood or hamlet in this broad land of oun,
in whioh will not be found one or more
persons who Irive bean oured of distressing
and often dangerous diseases, hy the medicines to which we refer���Dr. Pierce's Gold*

like those here printed, from tho ladiea
named above, are on file at the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute.
Mra. William Hoover, of Bellrille,
Richland Co., Ohio, writes as follows:
"I have been a groat sufferer from 'female
weakness'; I triad throe dootors; they did
me no good ; I thought I wai an invalid
forever. But I heard of Dr. Pierce'a Golden

specialists, forming the Faculty of the
Invalids' Hotel and Surgioal Institute, at

obstinate, complicated, or long neglected
liseaseB and " weaknesses," and oan be addressed or consulted at that institution.
Thi*y are always glad to offer, free of charge,
such suggestions as will not ouly hasten
the cure, Lut make it permanent.
Where a local physician is called npon
to t rf-at one suoh case, Dr. Pierce and his
skilled specialist! tnat many thousands,
and a lifetime practice in this special field
has made them experts in this speoial field
of praotice. There is no experimenting,no
phyiical patch-work,and no nromiiei made
which cannot be fulfilled. Their record of

girl bad a vary bid cough for a long time.
She took yonr Golden Medical Discovery

Mrs.   Caroline  King,   of New Boston,
Hoiotn Co., Ohio, writes : " I will always

Mrs. S. A. Monroe, of .'-115 S Register

been ailing for a year or more, being

In Europe a favoured few among noble
ladies have known of the secret of
the milk pack. It is a marvellous
rejuvenator, renewing one's youthful
appearance. After .1 few packs the skin
becomes soft and velvety, the health improved, and lhe frame more lithe and active. Wrinkles quickly disappear and
will not return so long as an occasional
pack is indulged in. The secret has been
hitherto so well preserved and confined
to so few, that public attention .md curiosity has never been aroused. In a large
city such things are not noiiccd as they
would be in a small place, and the person
rejoicing in lhe appearance born of the
magic milk p ick escapes (criticism Hut
n some way, which wc may no d vulge
the mystery of the milk pack ll is been
discovered by a middle aged lady of
Union who passes in society for about 18.
Her complexion is singularly fine, and by
study and association she simulates a
young person. She has many admirers
among gentlemen of from 20 tn 30 who
do not suspect her to be older than she
seems. Who she is will probably remain
unknown until some day by accident the
milk pack is discoveied. The writer
when in London was nvidc acquainted
with the habit prevalent among certain
noted beauties, and thus became familiar
wilh a certain peculiar appearance of the
complexion, which to lh*i uninitiated
would not be noticeable. Observing the
to him familiar signs, he investigated further until his suspicions were verified. If
any one is skeptical the person has only
to try the milk pack to be convinced, hut
it is to be hoped that they will not contract with the milkman to re buy the milk,
as is sometimes done by Parisian ladies.
Hut referring to the Union lady���Who is
she?���must remain an enigma for the
