A mother overlooks a little rash or  attempts some simple treatment and in a  day, perhaps, the little one Is covered with,  severe eczema or a similar distressing eruption.   Then the struggle for a cure begins.  A multitude of remedies are tried, doctor  after doctor consulted and hospitals visited,  but too often the suffering extends, without  substantial relief, from days to weeks, weeks to  months and months to years. Added to this is  the ever-present fear tbat the Itching, burning  and disfiguration will become chronic, marring future welfare and making life miserable.  In the prevention of the simple skin troubles  from which all this suffering so often arises  and in establishing a condition of skin health  that makes eruptions Impossible, mothers are  assured tbat nothing Is purer, sweeter or more  effective than Cuticura Soap and Cuticura  Ointment.   And greater still, If possible, Is  the success of these simple household remedies  ln the treatment of thc severer skin a fractions  themselves.   With the first warm bnth with  Cuticura  Soap  and   gcntlo   application   of  Cuticura Ointment, the itching and burning  of eczema cease, tho child fulls into a refreshing sleep, the mother rests and for the first  time, possibly, in many weeks peace /alls on  a distracted household.

Kimberley is a curious place, not  beautiful either in itself or its sur-  'ounding country, but interesting as  che centre of the world's diamond  supply, which it entirely controls,  and also as the centre of a Certain  gambling spirit which seems-to pervade, South Africa.  When the hard blue clay has been  dug from the mine and .spread out  to break and crumble under ��������� the  African sun, it is'difficult to believe  that diamond tiaras and necklaces  nre hiding in those uninviting fields  behind their wire fences. There is  something rather fascinating about  the actual extraction of the stones.  The crushing of the clay in the great  central "pulsator" is noisy and unpleasant, as is all machinery on a  large scale to anyone not accustomed  to it; but when ,the finally crushed  stuff conies pouring out of the huge  machine and is thrown in little  handfuls ��������� upon the sloping tables,  do.wn which it is washed by running  water, the spirit of "shikar" of the  chase, enters into one.  As you stand by the side of one of  the tables'and watch, you see the lit-,  tie throbbing shallow stream carrying  down bits of iron pyrites and other  matter, which slide or roll into a receptacle at the bottom of the table.  iThe tables are covered with a coating  of grease, but it does not seem able,  as a rule, to hold these against the  slight force of the water. Suddenly  a little whitish object drops upon the  top of the table with the rest of the  handfiil, turns over, and sticks, the  water'running around it but failing  to dislodge it.  Yo'ii look closely and sc-e that it is  a diamond���������a clean, regularly shaped, eight-sided figure, with one flat  side - lying against the slope". The  smoothness of its surface or some  other quality makes it cling to the  grease, and the water fails to move  it. A'certain proportion of the rubbish also sticks.  After various processes the selected crushings are finally picked over  ���������iy hand. 1 was invited to sit down  before a long table, not greased or  sloped, and a sheet of white paper  was put down before me. Upon this  was poured a handful of blackish  stuff, and with a little pair of pincers..  I set to work to pick out the diamonds. As a rule it is easy, os"*they  were of fair size, quite regular in  shape, and colorless, or very slightly  tinged with yellow. In a minute or  two 1 had twenty.  But the stones are often irregular,  or small or colored, and then the  work requires the skill of an expert;  and even an expert's eye is apt to  get tired and overlook some of the  -tones.���������Sir Mortimer Durand, in  Blackwood's Magazine.  fill  Lost���������������100.  Years ago when the electric telegraph was a new idea and a mystery  to the masses, there came trouble one  Saturday night in the Bank of England. Thc business of the day had  closed, and the balance was not right.  There was a deficit of just one hundred pounds. It was not the money,  but the error, that must be- found.  For the officials and clerks there could  be no sleep until the mystery had been  cleared up. All that night, and all  Sunday, a force of men were busy.

Here was an opportunity to  test the powers of the telegraph-  lightning against steam, and steam  with forty-eight hours the start. Very  soon the telegraph asked a man in  Southampton, "Has the ship Mercator  sailed?"  The answer came back, "Just  weighing anchor."  "Stop her in the Queen's name,"  flashed back the telegraph, "She is  stopped,"   was  returned.  "Have on deck certain boxes  (marks given), weigh them carefully,  and let me know the result," tele-  graohed'the chief.

If any one gifted with prescience a  generation ago had written out the  story of Johannesburg's rise and progress he would have been regarded as  'a burlesque Jules Verne. For a city  to spring up in the centre of South  Africa in twenty years, to attract a  quarter of a million settled popula-^  tion, and crowd an enormous municipal development within a single decade, sounds certainly more like imagination: than fact. So does the  arrangement by which she farms her  black domestics out in a suburb ten  miles away, and runs special trains  for them morning and night. But one  secret of the town's success rests on  her natural throne of 40-mile ridge  6,000 feet itbove the sea, and her nine  hours of- sunshine a day in perhaps  the mildest and most equable climate  in the world.  A Venturesome Peer.  The adventures in strange lands of  Lord Headley, who was sixty-five recently, would provide material for  more than one fascinating volume.  An Irish peer, he has seen a great  deal of soldiering. He fought in the  Carlist wars, and went through the  Franco-Prussian War with the French  Army Corps. And he has made long  journeys and explored the slopes of  the Andes and the hinterland of Peru.  Some months after Lord Headley wa-  expected back from a shooting expedition in Mnshonaland, a grisly story ur.  rived of his having been cut to pieces  by Mati-bele. But he came home  snf" and sound, while obituary notices  of his career wero still current.  tite, and a poor digestion, cannot  sleep well, suffer from headaches,  backaches and nervousness, it may  mean that you are on the verge of a  serious breakdown.  ..Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure weak  nervous, troubled men and women because of their direct action on the  blood. Every dose of these Pills helps  to'make new, rich blood, which tones  r the vital organs, strengthens the  nerves and brings renewed health  and strength. Mr. Geo. Johnson, of  Lequille, N.S., suffered for some years  as a result of over work and strain,  but found no help for his condition  until he begun the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Mr. Johnson says:  ���������"While working on a railway handling heavy ties I hurt my back and  had to give up work. Later I was able  to do ligljit work, but for about six  years 1 suffered..from dreadful pains  in the back and down my legs. This  condition became aggravated by indigestion and chronic constipation, and  my life was one of constant misery.  During those years I was treated by 1  different doctors, but did not get any j  help. One day a friend urged me to  try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and  proved his faith in them by presenting  me with a box. -It was more to please  him than from any belief that they  would . be of service to me that I began taking the Pills. Before the box  was finished, however, they seemed to  be helping me; the pains in my back  and legs grew less intense and the  bloating in my stomach, caused by  the indigestion disappeared. I continued taking the Pills until I had  used over a dozen boxes, when I found  myself fully restored to my former  health. I am now able to do heavy  farm Work, and for the past year have  not lost a day, or had the least symptom of'my former troubles, and I attribute it entirelv to the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills."

Zam-Buk is just the thing at such  times. As soon as you put it on to  a sore, a cut, a burn, or any skin injury, it stops the pain, and the smarting and starts up healing. Don't  make the mistake that because Zam-  Buk is so widely used by medical  men, by nurses, and for serious skin  diseases and accidents, that it is only  for serious cases. Keep it handy and  use it immediately you get some trivial injury or have some little sore.  Mrs. Chas. H. Barrett, Harmony  Road, Tiuro, N.S., says--"I had an  ingrowing toe nail, which caused me  acute agony. Sometimes the pain was  so severe I could not sleep. It,became  .10-bad that I" feared blood-poisoning  had set in. I wns advised to try Zam-  Buk and bound up the sore toe with  it. In a few days it wns much easier,  and 1 continued the treatment. The  result i.s that today thc toe is sound  and I have no more trouble with it.  We always keep Zam-Buk in our  house, and I would strongly recommend it to every housewife."  Zam-Buk is just the thing, too, for  the little ones. Pure in its composition, and herbal in nature, it is suitable for the most delicate skin. It  also cures piles, eczema, varicose ulcers, cold sores, abscesses, blood poisoning, ring-worm, and all similar  skin diseases.

The brain is one of the most patient  and industrious organs of the body.  It can be induced by good treatment,  to perform prodigies of work.  But it is sensitive and will not  brook abuse. It responds to the lash  at first, but if the lash is laid on too  hard it balks.  The brain insists on having plenty  I of good, red blood wherewith to renew  ' its waste and from which to manufacture the nerve force supplied to  the whole body.  Nervous trouble is generally brain  trouble, and no suffering is.to be compared to mental suffering, with the  accompanying dread, suspicion and  melancholy.

Study of Cheops Proves a Fascinating  Riddle For the Scientists.  The great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops) has, for nearly ten years, been  the object of special study and investigation by Dow Covington, the American Egyptologist and explorer, and  his latest excavation .there is of considerable interest.  Last peason, with the authorization  of Sir Gaston Maspero, director general of the Egyptian Service of Antiquities,, and through' the generosity,  of Frederick S. Phillips, an Englishman, Mr. Covington excavated more  than 100 feet at the north base of the  pyramid, west of the centre, exposing  nineteen finely cut and-perfectly joined casing stones, such as formerly  covered all the faces of the great work.  The first three had been discovered  and partly cleared in 1837 by Col. (afterward, General) Howard-Vyse, and  again exposed in 1882 by Prof. Petrie,  and fu'ly discussed ' by him. Last  season, however, Mr. Covington discovered and fully cleared sixteen more  of these interesting stones, and a strip  100 feet long and some 15 feet wide of  the well-finished pavement on which  they rest; and lie has just secured a  further authorization from the Egyptian-Government to extend this first  course examination right out to the  northwest socket.  The first four casing stones, being  at the centre oi the great movement  (which dates back to about 3,700  B.C.), were perfectly preserved by the  debris which came down when the  pyramid was forced open in 818 A.D.  by the Caliph Marnoun. The remaining 15, however, owing to centuries  of exposure, have greatly and picturesquely aged. But Mr. Covington  firmly believes that the Great Pyramid  was opened and then closed both in  remote ancient and Roman times. A  few years ago, in the pockets of the  natural rock in the well-shaft above  the grotto, he found many clear and  colored fragments of delicate,well-  made Roman glassware; and firmly  wedged in at the east end of a loose  stone extending across the entrance  passage (used by Prof. Piazzi Smyth  as an astronomical instrument stand)  he found the right femur of an adu'.t  male mummy. The Caliph Mamoun  as we know, found the sarcophagus  both  lidless  and  empty.  The joinings of the casing stones,  and those of the super-pavement on  which they rest, are almost invisible ,  appearing at places like a mere pin- I  scratch; yet e^very joint contains a  web-like film ^"of an almost white  cement.  The few defective parts in the top  surface of the casing (or facing)  stones, which, of course, were intended to be forever concealed by the overlying courses, had been carefully  chiseled out and replaced by a neatly  fitted let-in stone. The masonry  throughout the structure is practically faultless.  Several writers have erroneously  stated that the Great Pyramid was  covered by marble, by granite, or even  by alabaster. The facing stones were,  in fact, quarried out of a white compact limestone (principally Mokat-  tam). The limestone facing stones  ���������.till "in situ," the tons of limestone  chips and dust which covered ith'm,  !o s.iy nothing of the tremendous bulk  of workmen's limestone rubbish covering the face of the-pyramid plateau (but not placed there to strength-  ;n it), leave no doubt on this point.  \Ir. Covington, however, believes with  Prof. Smyth that the great quantity  if ditirite chips���������some of which have  Iressed faces���������found .on and near the  surface of the embanked pyramid of  workmen's rubbish, justifies us in believing that somewhere far up in the  mysterious structure there exists a  7airly large diorite chamber. Where  the sealed entrance to it may be, and  what it contains, are thrilling things  :'or future explorers to solve.  With a height of almost 59 inches  (58.75), the average length of the 19  facing stones now uncovored is .8 feet  5 inches; the first stone, however,  measured at its base on the east side  (exposed) almost 10 feet 1 inch, and  almost 10 feet 11 inches on the west.  Across the east face of this first casing stone there is a 2-5 inch vertical  shoulder, on which the adjoining core  stone fits.  DR.  WINTERS  Cures all chronic diseases. Write  hirn.

A striking instance of a house divided against itself on questions of  politics is furnished by the case of  the Earl and Countess of Carlisle and  their family. The earl has been described as an "unswerving and rigid"  Tory, while his wife has always been  a staunch supporter of the Liberal  cause. -Their son, the Hon. Guoffrey  Howard, is also a keen Liberal, while  the" eldest son of the family, Viscount  Morpeth, has been elected again for  South Birmingham as a Unionist.  A story of Viscount Morpeth's candidature for South Birmingham is to  the effect that Mr. Chamberlain remarked at one contest to Lord Morpeth, "If women were allowed to  stand for election, I suppose we should  have your mother down here running  against you as a Liberal candidate?"  "I have not a doubt of it," the viscount is said to have replied, "and a  poor figure I or any other man would  cut beside her. She is one of the best  of mothers, but for the good of the  country, as she sees it, my defeat  would cause her unbounded satisfaction."  Hoaxing  the  Latinists.

Iu  the consignment of foodstuffs donated by tho Alaskans now in Seattle will be eggs, oranges, apples,  potatoes, lemons and a few other  varieties of supplies.  The matter of getting the supplies to the famine-stricken district  is a matter of no small maguitude.  A barge and power launch will  be  taken on board the first  northern  bound liner and unloaded at Skag-  way, from which   town  the craft  will  be moved across the mountain range to Lake Lebarge.  They  will then be floated down the Yukon river as soon as the ice breaks,  which usually occurs in   May.    A  tug will meet the barge and launch  at the mouth of the Iditarod river  to convey the goods to the famine-  stricken town.  The directors of the Hedley'Gold  Mining Co., at their head oflice in  DU(Ti New York ou March 8th, declared  "the   usual  quarterly   dividend, of  3 per cent, and an  extra dividend  of 2  per cent, on the outstanding  stock of the  company  payable  ou  March JJlst.    The books close  today. Thursday, March IGth at 3 p.  m. and  will   remain  closed   until  April 1st at 10 a. ui.  When the extra dividend of 2  per cent, was paid at the ond of  December last it was thought that  this extra bon bon was given during the Christmas period as a sort-  of holiday gift to stockholders, but  ifs repetition now, three montlit-  Liter, puts a different face on the  matter and indicates very clearly  that this is the gait they have struck  under present operating conditions  and the present condition of the  mine.  Five per cent, quarterly is certainly hitting it oil to a lively tune  that must appear catchy and attractive to the fortunate stockholder  and the concerns which are paying  20 per cent, today are few and far  between.  The new plant is now in operation and while a few weeks uia^-  be required for adjustment in order  to get their full duty, there is no  doubt that the effects in the way of  securing a material saving in extraction are already apparent and  accounts for the increased dividend. When the water is sufficient  to enable them to dispense with the  steam auxiliary plant the profits  will be still greater.
