The-  accident  happened" off   Brenton's*  reef lightship, three miles out from  Narragansett'pier, about 2:15 p. m.  To all appearance the Constitution  . is badly crippled.    From the shore  she appeared to have   been   taken  about half way  up.     The   boom  swung to the lee Bide, and the main  sail and rigging were carried  overboard.1  The   tenderr   Mountmorris  was beside the boat in" a few   moments, and began picking   up   the  wreckage.   At 3 o'clock she   took  the Constitution in tow and headed  for Newport.

It is to  be hoped that these performances  will be held of tenor in future than  formerly.  The names of the performers are:  Mrs Coilis, Misses Willemar Cameron and Todd; Messrs Riggs, Barrett, T.

It .eemed frorxi the  evidence that the grievance was an  old one, and the primary   cause is  said to be���������what   everybody   will  fight for���������a girl,   .The   principals  and Mr Calhoun, were   each fined  $10 and costs;     The   evidence   at  times, took some laugh-provoking  turns.  ^One witness,   when   questioned aVto a blow' said   to   have  been given  wiih   a 'batten, when1  complainant was  getiing   over   a  fence, said that if the   blow   had  been s _uck he  did   not   think  it  coo.J have hurt much seeing  that  cjmp .i (KM,.got   over   wuh   such  fcneed, be-'.dfes only giving a choice  of such of h:s atuuomy as was  not  ve-y vulneiabie.  Again a wiLness, asked as to certain blows, feaid that lie had quite  enough 10 do to dotl^e tne flying  rock-, himself. "Did not care to  refeiee a fight of that kind."  Evidence of the fight proper,  finally switched off as to how  much water a well known milkman  put in his milk, but this was most  promptly stopped by the justice of  the peace.  Notice was given by  complainant of an  appeal from the  trate's decision.  *'I told you so!" The News  some time since told its readers  how Frank Dalby had been fixing"  his place, and hazarded the guess  that it looked like���������well, bird  catching. Lo and behold! the  bird is caught, and safely caged.  They both look happy,- so every  one else ought to be pleased.

" This exquisite work of Pinero's
was moatt successfully performed
by our local dramatic artists last
week. We must Bay that Mrs
Coilis, who was  the motive power
/ of the whole machine,  shows wonderful ap.ilude for detecting talent
in this direction.'    Her  company,
most of them quite strange  to  the
stage, acted what is   not   an   easy
play for amateurs,   in   a   manner
that ��would shame   many   professional troupes.    They looked  well,
spoke well, and acted  well.   They
had a good house, and the performance was for a   good cause,���the
widows and orphans fund, which is
the richer by the exertions of the
ladies and gentlemen  engaged,  by
the sum of nearly $100.     It is to
be hoped that these performances
will be held oftener in future than

Newport/ R.I., June 4���The Constitution was,, dismasted  while   on

accident happened /eff   Brenton's
reef lightship, three miles out from
Narragansett pier, about 2:15 p. in.
To all appearance the Constitution
is badly crippled.    From the shore
she appeared to have   been   taken
about half way up.     The  boom
swung to the lee side, and the main
sail and rigging were carried  overboard.' The   tender   Mountmorris
was beside the boat in" a fe\r   moments," and began picking   up   the
wreckage.    At 3 o'clock she   took
the Constitution in tow and headed
for Newport.    The wind was strong

The trial of McKelvy* for assaulting Mr Swan,1 of   Sand wick, took
place in the court  house   here   on ~*
Wednesday.    It seemed from the
evidence that the grievance was an
old one, and the primary   cause is
said to be���what   everybody  will
right for���a girl.    The   principals
and Mr Calhoun, were   each fined .
$10 and costs.     The   evidence, at
times took some laugh-provoking
turns.    One witness,   when   questioned as to a blow   said   to   have
been given with   a   batten   when
complainant was  getting   over   a
fence. &aid that if the   blow   had
been &..uc'v he  did   not   think  it

speed, be/deb only giving a choice

Again a witness, asked as to certain blows, &aid that Lie had quite
enough 10 do to dod^e tne flying
rocKs himself. ''Did not care to
referee a fight of that kind."
Evidence oi the fight proper,
finally switched off as to how
much water a well known milkman
put in his milk, but this was most
promptly stopped by the justice of
the peace.
Notice was given by complainant of an appeal from the magistrate's decision.

Dr. James'Mills, ofGuelpl/ moved  the  adoption   of. the report  in\an
excellent address, ,frbm which the-following ,is a short extract : - (
' .At a meeting of this nature it" is always   a pleasure  to  be in  a  posi-
-tion to congratulate those interested,-and on   this   occasion,.,  11 can do'so
most heartily.     --"">'...�� - , . * ~'l
We have really a most satisfactory statement to present to the shareholders and policyholders of'the Company, a statement which will bear
the closest inspection. .We' can speak with more defimteness than -ever m
the past in iogard to our investments-and our standing, for we "have
more information at our disposal, furnished us in the splendid report of
our consulting actuary.1 There has been progress all along the line.
- A comparison of 1900 and 1899 is in the report, so I need not refer
to that again. I would, however, refer <to one other point . The question of our progress during a longer period, 1894 to ]900, being that t of
' the present management. <.
After a lapse of six years we find many points which are alike creditable to the management  and gratifying to the persons most interested in
��� .the success of the Company, the shareholders and policy-holders.
The following  figures  will  illustrate the growth of the Company :
' Net- Income   Gross Assur-
<���      ' 1st Year:s from -        ance
���Year ' Assets     Premiums.   Proms. & Int.     in Force.
1894      '     %    821.321   s' 61,685       896,468       ..$9,555,300
.1900  '.      2,279,176     115,782        667,717 >t       15,409,020
The assets  are practically three  times what they were six years ago.
Amount of income from new business shows  100  per  cent,   increase.      Net
���income from Premiums and Interest  has increased over 100 per cent.   The
.assurance     has grown    from 9l/2 to   15y2 millions.
I want also to refer to the character of our assets and the expense
���ratio, both being important items in a concern of this kind. Our securi-
���ties were never "before ia the splendid condition they are today. I doubt
>if any company can show such a record of invested assets of over $2,-
���000,000  and   only  $501.30 overdue interest*.
In new companies the expense ratio is alwas's large. These expenses
should gradually decrease, and our record is as it should be in this respect.
The ratio is about 14 per cent, less than it was two years ago. l
think that is one of the most satisfactory features in our business. The
Tatio  is  decreasing rapidly.
I tkank out* manager, his staff and the field force for the results we
.are able to report today, and 3 do so most sincerely, and 1 must congratulate the policy-holders and shareholders on the position we have
Mr. J. F. Junkin, the Managing Director,, in seconding the adoption
��� of  the report,  remarked :
If we look back over two years, we find that the premium income for
1900 was almost $140,000 more than for 189S, or an increase of 31 per
cent., while our expenses for 1900, as compared with 3 898, only show
-an increase of about $2,000. or 1V_ per cent. The result is that we have
-now, not only the lowest expense ratio of any active company of our
own or a similar age on the continent, but we compare very favorably
in this respect with even the oldest and largest Canadian and American
Companies. ������     Y ' .       '

Elizabeth's heart- came the, nest evening, when she heard that an accident had
happened at the Eagle Bill mine, ,.and'
that by the breaking of a chain on an
ore bucket that was used to lower the
miners, into the drift, Valleyfield and
one of his miners had been Seriously,
perhaps fatally, hurt. t Coincident with
the sudden grief and fear that0 seized
her immediately upon receipt of this "information came the clear, unmistakable
revelation that she loved' this ' man. -

loved him as she> could never- love on
earth again. Now she 'knew why the
sweetness of his act,in.so gallantly lifting her .over the stream lingered so

Valleyfield had been so.kind!to her when

their  footsteps in  the direction  of .the

that the shock to bo'th.-.had- been so. se-
yere that, he had,   ordered     temporary

them removed to  their quarters.        '   ���
', 'Elizabeth  was ,siu*rA*icd  at  the .fortified ,condition of   this   mine" when wshe,
came in 'view of it.    Temporary fence's
had  been  built  around the entrance 1o

by   wire  to' a galvanic' battery  hidden
far   in   the    mine.    Moveable    padded ���
screens, with Winchester holes in'them,
were  scattered here  and there,  behind
which any   one     man" with   a breach-
loader would be a formidable defender.-
Elizabeth was surprised,   however,' still
more at tho'few miners present���seven,
all told, counting the manager,-and the
miner that had  been hurt.    She afterwards    learned   that ' tho   Eagle   Bill's
staff  had originally, numbered  thirteen,
exclusive of the manager, and that the
six   remaining., were     those     who   had
proven their ability to -withstand   Godfrey's  bribing characteristics.
1 The five now on guard were, thoroughly armed and a dozen eztra Winchesters
with   the  necessary   ammunition for   a
prolonged   siege  stood   in  readiness   for
use. Evidently the workers in the Eagle
Bill  were expecting jumpers   of an  extraordinary kind.
Valleyfield had not recovered consci;
ousness yet, but the doctor could find no
broken* hones. Elizabeth nursed hiin
through the night, and on the morrow
consciousness returned and he was
manifestly better.

was a change in this girl, and that a

made her even more fascinating than

Suddenly the fear came to Elizabeth
that he did not return her love, that he
did not even like her. This self-suggestion tore her heart for an instant
with one cruel pang, and then left her
white and helpless. To Avhom could she
turn in her, despair. Oh, if- her father,
were only, here that she might throw
herself into his arms and tell him all.
Then came the fixed desire to go at
once to him,, to turn to the only one she
had on earth to look te for sympathy.

and know what -was best:to be done
about the mine. She Avent over to a

"Since you are uoav better, and. do
.not-AA-ant me any "more, I will'go at
once," she said, as she put on her cloak,
and there was a new dignified pride' in
her voice that smote Valleyfield to the
core. - "I   am  afrs-id   it   must  also   be

The Pipr In Water.  .Of pigs it is commonly reported that  so queerly fashioned are they that if  they attempt to swim they cut their  throats Avith their fore feet, but this is  only an old wife's fable. Whether wild  or tame, they are all good swimmers,  though, owing to the shortness ot their  legs, they just touch their throats with  their fore feet and beat the water very  high.

For Avho does not'  find an alluring guest'in the unraveling  of the ominously hinted, unknown bygones intertwined about-the heart-of a  ���������stranger? And of such a stranger!  Frederic Yale Avas mysterious in two  particulars, . principally because of the  perfect whiteness of the abundant hair  curling about his youthful face, while a  poignant subordinate interest attached  to a handsomely gemmed locket, delicately and diminutively feminine in outline,  which dangled from his Avatch guard as a  charm. '    -  Those who had scrutinized the trinket  most carefully reported that one .side  was embossed with a miniature of a  young woman's face, framed in a re-  splendently plumaged hat. But this,  pointing to an affair of the heart, there  were those of the household Avho^ would  fain discredit.  For soft innuendoes were already afloat  of an alliance between Mr. "Yale and an  engaging sylph of the boarding house,  who had whispered to the doAvager her  opinion of him. Her confidant, relishing  the.gentleman's advances upon herself,  had promised her most masterly tactics  in behalf of the girl, who, inexperienced  in matrimonial campaigning, would, certainly never have essayed the subjugation  of so rich an empire as he unless aided  by the counsels of some veteran commando, such as the aged lady.  As women are proverbial romancers, it  goes without saying that the locket and  the snowy curls and the incipient intrigue became pet themes of conversation around the fashion plates and the  embroidery of the household. But with  equal zest wore they discussed in the  smoking room, at the billiard tables,  while among the few juveniles suffered  by the landlady they provoked an excitement which made their poor mother quiver lest in some unguarded moment they  should execute their resolutions of approaching Mr. Yale on the topic. She  told them it might vex him, evoking severe reproofs before "others, although  there lurked within her the suspicion that  he was, after all, too SAveet tempered  ever to become incensed at.small offend-  ' crs- ���������'������������������'���������. '  ������������������ ��������� .   \  Gradually, however, it became apparent that all the house were harboring  similar designs to those of the children  and that all shared on their own account  the mother's expectations of;leniency in  case their queries should pro\*e unAvel-  come to Mr. Yale.  For some days they had hoped that his  general communicativeness respecting his  experiences as a traveler, would lead to  a voluntary disclosure of the mystery;  but, none taking place and the time of  his stay being limited, they determined  to wait no longer upon his pleasure lest  he should some day leave and his secret  go Avith him, they being none the wiser.  So whenever the gentleman Avas absent the others fell to plotting for some  way of ferreting out the mystery, if possible, without laying themselves open to  reproach. The chosen plan proA-ided that  at the close of some dinner a certain  member of the company should begin an  entertaining, exciting and prolonged tale;  that the ladies should nrc>nnso to  wi<-h-  dra\A- to (he reception room to hear its  conclusion: that this story should lead to  a general desiie for each one present to  relate the most' thrilling ad\'enture to  which he or she had ever been a, party;  that the light*- should be snugly lowered  a*- an additional decoy, and that if Yale  did not readily deliver himself of his history divers little tactful.'persuasive hints,  should he throAA'iv out, with a aipw to  coaxing it from him. Then, if at last  they nctthyJ or aggrieved -the gentleman,  they would rely upon his customary good"  humor for a happy issue out of thein-  tribuhttions. , > >  Little need had they, however, for any'  artilices   beyond   the   first, story,   which  'Avas"peiyetrated during a certain dinner'*  final cupfuls of coffee, for at this unpretentious caravansary the coffee appeared)  in continuous "performance.      '    *  No sooner did the hazardous-quality.of*  the first recital's incidents come to light;  than Mr. Yale,' the cynosure of all eyes,  ���������assumed an aspect of signal and miser-,  able,abstraction. (  Ah/ he let his fingers  ripple up through his terrible white hair, ���������  and,  eureka,  they   fondled that strange,   '  beautiful little locket!  Only a few impatient minutes later, iri  tho murky glimmer of the dnnving room,*  his laurel crowned listeners were ushered into the presence ofcthe sphinx. -       t ^  It Avas a SAAreetheart affair.

GHOST   |   Appear./*  t. In London  OF {   Tower ,  i��������� Before  QUEEN   I   Death of  I   British  MARY      j   Monarch  The gliost of Mary, queen of Scots,  walked in tbe somber Tower, of London on Christmas eve. There, where  many have been imprisoned and led  thence to death, a burly guard on  Christmas eve, midnight, heard .soft  footsteps and the- low\ sound of'woman's wailing. r <  ' Mary, queen of Scots, so they say,  Mary of the sorry story, has' always  ��������� ���������walked on the Christmas eve before  the monarch died.      , ,  On second thoughts the guard laughed at himself for ihis foolishnessl What  ���������were 'spooks to him? he queried.  Naught but a fancy to have birth in  (Tito  GHOST OF MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS.  i#     <idle  minds,  to be prated  of by  idle  tongues. ' Some one was putting up a  i &   joke on hirn.������' He would.hunt bim out.  \   So ho climbed the long stair tlights.  !' No one was to be seen.  '       "Oho!   So you think.you'll hide, do  you?"  he  queried  in  a fierce'.rumble  that might have struck terror to the  heart of any practical joker.  "I'll teach  you to hide."   And thereupon he com-  * menccd a  search,  that  began   in  the  ���������    highest point of the Tower and did not  end until its bottom was reached,  lie found no' one.  There could be no mistake about it.  ^ No  living  person  could * be , above in  that Tower and have passed him on the  .���������way down without his seeing.  When the whilom ruddy old guard  was through, his search, his cheeks were  as white as those of a frightened maid  - and his hand shook like the hand of  one.  Since the time of Elizabeth, persecu-  ��������� <* tor or rightful avenger of Mary Stuart, whichever she may have been, the  ghost has been reported to make itself  heard on each' Christmas eve before the  death of the reigning monarch. Perhaps this was an old wives' tale.  ' And" yet, do you remember when the  guard's story was given forth? On the  day following the occurrence, when the  public at large still believed "Victoria  Regina to be in the fullness of her  powers, people who read it said: "Nonsense, the queen lives and shall live.  This is the tale of a foolish fellow, who  babbles nonsense."  Within the month all Christendom  was watching at her bedside and saw  her pass away.  It was then that some stopped to reflect upon what the guard had said.  It was the same way, they remembered, when Elizabeth died.   The 24th of  the preceding December was the first  ,      time that the ghost had  made itself  known.    -  It was heard then by two watchers;  bo the story goes.   It walked half the  Y night through, and it wailed.most horribly.   The men clung to one another  in terror and knew not what it meant.  Once it spoke, so one of them said,  but the other, denied it. "Elizabeth  shall die; she who beheld me captive,"  were her Words.  At any rate, Elizabeth died within.  - the year.  It was the same way when James I  died. Walkings and wailings were  heard, and in March he surrendered  "the'throne which he had held.  Then came < Charles I. There were  political troubles; he was overthrown.  He finally stirred up a fresh civil war  and a Scottish invasion in 164S, and  bis death followed. He was beheaded  on a scaffold outside the windows of  (Whitehall and there ended his story.  The Christmas eve before his execution a woman passing the Tower of  London,   hurrying   home   late  in   the  night, for she was alone and timid,  heard a long sad cry from the,top of  the Towex*. - She,, could see no light,  and when she inquired nest day she  learned that no one had been known to  be in the Tower the preceding night.  All'entrances were closed.'Maurauders  had not ,been noticed in that eastern  end of the city.  "Nor did it sound like maurauders,"  affirmed the woman. "Sure it sounded more like the voice of one that is  dead and gone'. It was far off like, and  yet near, and it had the sound of a  great trouble that there is no reme-  dyinof."   ���������  So the tale was told time and again  just before the death of each succeeding sovereign. The second, Charles  and James passed away, arid William  and; Mary in their turns and Queen  Anne in hers. The four Georges^ followed in succession and William IV  and always came' the warning.  It, has been the loudest and most  terrifying when the death was violent.  Victoria, 'loving'r sovereign, long and  .peaceful of reign, 'Avas so gently warned that only one>within the Tower, so  the guard says, could have heard the.  sounds. There was infinite sadness in  them, but no terror. "  "Or there would have been nbr terror  if they, had come in the day," he adds.  "It was fearsome like' in the night.  One alius fears more when it happens  than on the day afterward when one  thinks it over. It don't seem now to  be anything to run for, but I did want  to run when I heard it, that's true  enough." ���������        ," ��������� ( '    - -  Ghost or no ghost, Victoria'died.

'  Sorrow  Nai)oIeo:i'!j -IdealFc:\U(ie  In  ' Toxir'l*'j.si;!css Affairs.  This wac Napoleon's brief statement of  the ail of war:      , , -    |  "The art of war consists in'having always more forces than the enemy on the  point where the enemy is attacked or  where he attacks." . ' ' * .  L Napoleon 'won victories apparently as  easily with an inferior as with a superior  force���������that is' to'-say. Napoleon with a  hundred , thousand men was perfectly  readj to .irieet another general ,with 200.-  000 men or 500,000 men. lie simply took  cave tliat his men should'be more numerous and better placed at the point of actual decisive struggle.  .Don't   think   that   Napoleon's  view  of*  success in  battle applies only to-cm per-,  orS'Oiv'generals or military men.    Life is  a battle,  and successful strategy  in one  kind of fighting means successful strate-;  gy'in another. -' ,  Napoleon, beginning his career as,' an  ambitious, cautious young soldier, representing a republican' nation intOD.-.e!y  jealous of military glory, knew that he  must not expect too great support from  home���������that he must win or perish.      t  1 Very often he .could not equal his adversaries in numbers, but always he managed to surpass them in numbers at tho  particular point where the hard fighting  'occurred.  "To march always on the enemy at an  angle and destroy his forces in -detail."  Such was his successful plan. On one  occasion throe armies marched against  him. They took different routes, stationed themselves in what they considered to be superb strategic positions. Tho  army was almost three times as great a4?  his own. Ho attacked one-third of this  foolish force and destroyed it* while tho  other two-thirds looked helplessly on.  lie attacked the second third and won  the day. He could not have heal en the  three-thirds had they combined ihei:-  lorces at every fighting point as he combined his.  '"What has that to do with the agent  trying to sell a let of goods? What h-is  thi't to do with the unemployed .man looking for a job?"  Ef you ask one of these two questions,  we can answer easily. Every mail who a*"-  proaches another with an object airacU*;  him on some one point. lie need not b..-  in all ways the equal of the man whom  ho approaches.

If ho wants to sell merchandise, let  him be thoroughly piepa'red to prove that  his goods are the bt'bt and that they n;e  .enlly needed.  If the man who wants to win on a certain point will concentiate all his forces  on Unit point, he can carry the day. Borrow Napoleon's idea. Learn to concentrate your forces.  j. A "Word of dioournpronicritf.  Great things have resulted from a  word of encouragement. Down in the  bottom 'of her heart Nathaniel Hawthorne's wife may have felt a bit discouraged when her husband came home,  all sad and depressed, after having received word that he had lost his position in the custom house. He did not  then know where to tiuh for new employment and said so. But his wife bade  him cheer up and write. ' When the disheartened man told her he could not afford to labor with financial results uncertain, she showed him the little store  of gold that she had put by and told him  to sit down and write the book he had  been talking.of wanting to write. And  not long after that the world had "The  Scarlet Letter," which it still prizes.���������  Exchange.  Observe tlie Explanation.

Cattle growers of the west for'years  have viewed with alarm the increasing  numbers of wolves and coyotes which  have caused great loss in lambs and  calves, especially in Colorado and Wyoming. Poisou has proved unsuccessful  in lighting the pest. ' -   '  In Wyoming, however, the wolf finds  at least one'insatiable enemy���������a man  whose hunt,for pelts is never ceasing.'  J. A. Melntyre, or "Rattlesnake Jack,"  as he is generally and��������� prefers to be  known, is one of the most unique and  familiar figures "in the valley of the  Little Laramie. As his sobriquet- implies, he was ,6nce a destroyer of the,  venomous diamond backed rattler, but  he has some years .since abandoned  that occupation and gone into wolf  catching. From the crawling thing to  the four , footed pest was a step forward' in the career of this peculiar  westerner, since' both the gratitude and  the gold of, the ranchman go out to  the wolf killer, and Jack has found  himself daily growing richer in popularity and purse. '      ���������    >-  In the last five years Jack has cleaned out, the country about Sheridan and  Casper so well that he was compelled  to move.- Laramie is now the center of  his territory, and he' is 'now making  preparations'to'plunge into the "spring  ' running." ���������.      ', ., t   ��������� L  One of * JackJs" proudest exploits was  iherrecent trapping of an old she wolf  which had, for several seasons been the  terror of ranch 49, about l20i miles, from  ; Laramie. She, was a monster beast.  easily', capable of bringing 'down a' full  grown steer- and with nostrils that  scented .danger from afar. Though her  visits were" as regular as the sun. her  cunning kept her from all. harm until  Jack came.  > An ordinary No. 4 steel trap baited  with.a peculiar scent proved her undoing. This scent,is one of the secrets of  Jack's art.  , ' ' '  Jack also boasts of the ownership of  a pair,of the, finest greyhounds in. the  Tlie Athen.Jr:rj  n*  The   Athenian*   iIjis.-   ....

A ride behind these gentle dogs���������  for in their veins runs the best blood of  England's greatest coursers���������is sport  worthy of any man. There may be  those who would scoff at the idea of a  greyhound killing in open combat a  wolf or even a coyote, but let them  keep their opinion from Jack.  A pair of dogs such as Jack owns,  with courage and bone and muscle,  find a coyote little better than a plaything, and many are the records of a  single greyhound killing a sound and  vigorous gray wolf in fair combat.  Casper Nell and Laramie Bill have  earned for Jack many an honest dollar-  and won for him countless trophies.  Let the skulking wolf, skirting the  browsing herds with ravenous eyes,  searching for the unhappily abandoned  calf or the stray Iamb, beware tof Jack  and his scented trap and of Casper  Nell and Laramie Bill.  Lawyers Are Not Gentlemen.  While ex-Justice Bookstaver was  on the Supreme Court bench he had  as special officer or attendant a  punctilious old German, who always  stood guard at the door leading to  the -justice's private chambers when  the justice was within. One "day a  prominent lawyer and two of his  clients called and asked if the justice   would receive  them.  The officer threw open the door and  called out loudly to the justice:   ."  "Shudge! Two shentlemans and &  lawyer vants to speak mit you."  The three gentlemen laughed.'  "Vor vhat you laff,  eh?"  "Don't you count me a gentleman?"  asked the lawyer.

'We havej however, in  Quinine Wine, when obtainable in a sound,  unadulterated 6tate, a remedy for many and  grievous ills. By its gradual and judicious  use the frailest systems are led into convalescence and strength by the influence which  Quinine exerts on nature's own restoratives.  It relieves the drooping spirits of those with  whom a chronic state of morbid despondency and lack of interest in life is a disease,  and, by tranquihzing the nerves, disposes to  ���������sound and "refreshing sleep���������imparts vigor  to ,the action of the blood, which, being  stimulated, courses throughout the veins,  strengthening the hea.thy animal functions  of_, the system, thereby l making activity a  necessary result, strengthening the frame,  and giving' life to the digestive organs, which  naturally demand increased substance���������result, improved appetite.

The truth is, that for  four" long years the poor man did"not  have a single moment's respite from  the rackingt of ^this dreadful, disease.'  Mr. Doeg>  says :      "It    makes,  me  shudder to look -back' upon that aw-,  ful four years.   Even-the thought of,  it  is   "dreadful^   How    I ever'    lived  through it I do    not n know,* but ; -f  thank God that he has  at dast" restored me .to health and'strength with  ("nothing  of: the rheumatism left r but  the memory of it'.''. \  i    < r-.B    ���������'    ^.

He-had  .tried the treatment, of several physicians and had used almost every medicine known .as-a -cure 'for rheumatism, but he got no relief., ���������-'   * -   ,r. ���������  "I gave*' thein.^all,'a 'fair,-chance,'  too," said Mr. Doeg' to-The-Echo,  "but nothing seemed able to give me  even temporary relief. I" grew despondent and despaired of ever leaving that dreadful pain behind me.     <.  "One clay I read in a newspaper  the testimonials of some' who said  they had been cured of rheumatism  by Dodd's Kidney Pills. ��������� I hadn't  much faith in anything by this time,  but I sent for one box of the pilis  and commenced. I noticed an' improvement and kept on, and look at  me now."  Mr. Doeg certainly doesn't look  like an invalid now, and, it is hard  for'one who had not seen him in his  sick room to believe that six months  ago he couldn't walk.  "I-Iave you any objection to making and signing a written statement  of the whole thing for publication, in  The Echo ?" was asked Mr. Doeg.   -  "None whatever. I will be glad to  do so, for I want every person suffering as I was with rheumatism to  know that Dodd's Kidney Pills will  cure them, and I do hope that my  statement will be read by all such  unfortunates.  This is Mr. Doeg's written statement :���������  For four years I suffered excruciating torture, during which time I was  scarcely ar hour free from pain. The  trouble commenced in my back,  where it often remained stationary  for months, and so intense i was the  pain that J could not lie down or  take rest, but had to sit night and  day in a chair. The pain would then  remove to other parts of .my body,  and when in my knees I was unable  to walk and confined constantly to  my room. I was treated for rheumatism by several doctors and :\Uo  tried many medicines without receiving any benefit. Almost in despair I  feared I would never again experience the pleasure of being free from  pain.' ������������������ '���������:'-."������������������"���������   ''  Last spring my attention was directed to some remarkable cures of  rheumatism effected by Dodd's Kidney Pi Is, recorded in the -public  prints. I procured a box, and soon  found, that they were doing ine good,  so I, kept on, till now I can say' I  am a new man entirely free from  pain, and have continued so for over  six months, being, able to attend to  isaj puu urxej otn uo s^nnp .^it-up ^cu  strong and able for work.  I verily believe this great change  has been effected by the .use' of Dodd's  Kidney Pills, and I think it my duty  to. make..-this statement public for the  benefit or anyone afflicted as T was.-  Wm. Doeg,  Sunbridge.  This is a plain, unvarnished statement of fact as we have found it,  and every reader of The Echo, especially those who know how bad Mr.  Doeg was, will agree that it' is a case  without parallel in the history of  the community.

Some of the members oi* the bar were  discussing contempt cases because of  a recent notable eveut in the state, aud  one of the little coterie related a personal experience.  "I read law at home and had my examinations throuj-.li a little country  lawyer 'who knew a great deal, but  never had a big case and was notorious  for his ability in abusing justices of  the peace. It may seem a preposterous statement, but 1 had never heard  or thought of such a thing as contempt  of court when 1 had my first professional experience in a common pleas  ���������ourt. No sooner had the opposition  attorney made an objection than the  Judge ruled against me. ������  "1 proceeded to inform him that he  wijs wrong. V hat he knew he was  wrong and thA 1 wished he would quit  his pettifogging. The lawyers in attendance were temporarily petrified;  the venerable judge glared at me over  his glasses, finally smiled in a forgiving sort of way and told me to proceed. Very soon there was another  well taken objection, and again he  ruled against me. This practically took  the props fromr under n'iy case, and I  went at the judge as my instructor had  been accustomed to go "at a justice of  the peace in a back'township.  " 'Your honor,' 1 declaimed, 'is a political accident In the eternal fitness  of. things you should be digging coal  or cleaning out, underbrush. You have  no more sense of justice: than a Zulu  chief of mercy. Thank heaven there is  a higher judicial tribunal in this state  that'- But there I was baited by a  fine of $200 or;'00 days in jail. The  judge took me to' his private room,  whore he learned my story and remitted the fine. To pay $200 at that time  would have pauperized me. 1 now  have quite a reputation for never rubbing the court the  wrong way."  The Size of It.
