Hot m Good Idea.
A certain Cleveland reporter con-
ceived a brilliant idea. He took It np
to Superintendent Kingsley.
"Mr. Kingsley," he said, with an in-
sinuating smile, "wouldn't it be a clev-
er scheme to have a wedding take place
in the new tunnel?"
The superintendent looked a little

ries?" he inquired.
The reporter felt pretty sure he

cake, ring and all the rest of it?"
"I'll have them ,on hand when want-
ed," said the scribe.
The superintendent looked thought-
"No," he slowly said, "it will not do."
The reporter was grievously disap-
"And why not?" he demanded.
"Because," replied the superintend-
ent, slowly. "It certainly would be
criminal carelessness on our cart to
admit persons to the tunnel who are

more like the gibing face of a Christ-

"to find such quick and touching sym-
pathy. May I ask your name?"
"I," proudly replied the . other, "am

"I am Trilby's foot."

A NATION OF DYSPEPTICS.
From the Mountaineer, WaVidtta, W. Dakota.
The remorse of a guilty stomach is what a
large majority of people are suffering with to-
day. Dyspepsia is a characteristic American
disease and it is frequently stated that "we
are a nation of dyspeptics."
Improper food, hurried eating, mental
worry, exhaustion; any of these produce a
lack of vitality in the system, by causing the
blood to lose its life sustaining elements. The
blood is the vital element in our lives and
should he carefully nurtured. Restore the
blood to its proper condition, dyspepsia will
vanish and good health follow.
For example, in the county of Pembina,
North Dakota, a few miles from Walhalla,
resides Mr. Earnest Snider, a man of sterling
integrity, whose veracity cannot be doubted.
The Doetort Disagreed.
"I became seriously ill three years ago.
The doctor gave me medicine for indigestion,
but I continued to become worse. I had sev-
eral physicians at intervals who gave me
some relief, but the disease would return with
all its accustomed severity.
"I read in the newspapers articles regard-
ing the wonderful curative powers of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, and
finally concluded to try the pills. I purchased
six boxes. This was "five months ago. The
first box gave me much relief. I continued
taking the pills, and after using four boxes
These pills are recognized everywhere as a
specific for diseases of the blood and nerves.
For paralysis, locomotor ataxia, and other
diseases long supposed incurable, they have
proved their efficacy in thousands of cases.
The New Ten.
Matrimony has ten commandments.
These were studied out by Theodore
Parker shortly before the day of his
wedding. They took the form of ten
beautiful resolutions, which he in-
scribed in his Journal. They are as
1. Never, except for the best rea-
sons, to oppose my wife's will.
2. To discharge all duties for her
3. Never to scold.
4. Never to look cross at her.
5. Never to worry her with com-
G. To promote lier piety,
7. To bear her burdens.
8. To overlook her foibles.
9. To save, cherish and forever de-
10. To remember her always in my
prayers. Thus, God willing, we shall
A new disease has appeared which
has been styled smoker's cramp.
It is very similar in its effects to
writer's cramp, or scrivener's palsy.
The disease is caused by rolling cigar-
ettes with one hand.
For many years it has been common
in Spain, although some smokers are so
expert as to make a cigarette with a
single twist of the fingers. Since the
law was recently passed- in France
permitting the manufacture of hand-
made cigarettes, large numbers of girls
have been employed in rolling ciga-
rettes by hand.
It is among them that the disease
has appeared. In Spain, however, it
is not confined to the cigarette girls,
but is a common ailment among the
rest of the population who indulge in
the fragment but baneful papelito.

HIS LIFE'S MISTAKE.
Weather and Suicide.
According to an eastern journal, the
record of metropolitan suicides for
four years does not support the popu-
lar belief that heated spells drive peo-
ple to destruction. The fact of the
matter *is, however, weather extremes
do kill off young and old whoso vitality
is below par, as the mortuary lists dur-
ing the prevalence of hot and cold
waves show. Whether or not these
weather extremes increase suicides can
only be determined, not by counting
the causes assigned, but by noting the
waves of suicide and their relation to
weather changes. As a primary cause
the weather will, perhaps, rarely ba
put on record, but as a secondary
cause, it is quite possible hot and cold
waves may lead more despondents
and afflicted to take their lives than
when weather conditions are normal

This is all wrong and might be different
if women would follow Dr. Hartman's ad-
vice. Perhaps the most practical printed
talk to women to be found anywhere is in
Dr. Hartman's book called "Health and
Beauty," which the Pe-ru-na Medicine Co.,

Pe-ru-na has proved a perfect boon for
women's diseases of the pelvic organs. It
treats them scientifically and cures them
permanently. All druggists sell it.

the use of your medicine at once," writes
Mrs. H. D. Amoss of Greensboro, Ga., to

Pe-ru-na and two of Man-a-lin. I feel like a new woman. When I commenced

Wound in my shoulder, and it was
months before I came back to this part

"The old-time scenes and associations
(although the war had brought many
grievous changes) seemed to open my
emotions anew, and one Sunday I de-
cided to go to her.
"I had gone perhaps half the way
when I came to a switch on which
stood a dilapidated locomotive. An
engineer and his assistant were en-
deavoring to polish its rusty wheels

pros and cons of matrimony.

when I marchcd away into the fire and
thunder of Shiloh a little golden curl,
a locket enclosing the photograph of a
pretty girl, and a Bible, her gifts, were
snugly and carefully tucked away in
the lining of my coat.
Lucy's brothers and I were enlisted
in the sama regiment, and in that way
I frequently, heard from her. Their
father, a strong minded, stubborn, aris-
tocratic old fellow, had positively for-
bidden an engagement or even com-
munication of any sort. She was-too
young, he said, to have her mind turn-
ed topsy-turvy with love nonsense.
"She made no effort to disobey, but
when she gave me the curl and locket
and looked at me through tears that
were just falling from her great blue
eyes, I felt that in the battle of hearts
I had not lost, and that in due course
of time I'd claim the indemnity of war
and call little Lucy my own.

for six months or a year. Then came

But Oae Celestial Enlisted in the Wax
of the Rebellion.
The enlistment.or a Chinaman in the
volunteer army of California the other
day re<ial]s thfr fact that there was but
cne celestial in thfe. war of the rebel-
lion. His Chinese* name'Is unknown;
but the name under which he enlisted
was Thomas Sylvanus. He was born
in Baltimore about eighteen years be-
fore the outbreak of the war. When
only a child he was taken to Pittsburg,
where he acted as a servant for a
wealthy family in that city. When the
war broke out Thomas ran away and
enlisted in the army. He served Un-^
c!e Sam until the close of the war,
shortly after which he turned up in
Indiana, Pa., where he resided until his
death, which occurred a few years ago.
While in the service of .. the United
States Sylvanus contracted a disease of
the eyes, from which he went almost
blind. In 1880 he applied for and was
granted a pension of $12 per month.
He also secured several hundred dol-
lars back pension. An examination of
the records discloses the fact that Syl-
vanus was the only Chinaman in the
late war, and consequently the only
one of his race who drew a pension. At
last accounts his widow and children
were still living in Indiana, Pa.—

Galveston, Tex., Oct. 29.—The fire on
the British steamer Aldersgate was
found to have been at that stage where
the hatches could be opened and the
damaged cotton removed. Enouglx
was seen to justify the belief that the
damage was slight as a result of the
steam pouring into the hold for the
past three days. It is believed that be-
tween 500 and 600 bales are damaged,
but the damage so far as seen' will
not exceed $3 a bale. *!
