I HAD SALT RHDEM.
In i the most aggravated form for eight
years- No kind of treatment, medicinc or
dpctors did me any permanent good. My
friends in Maiden" know how 1 suffered.
When I began to use the Cuticuka Reme-
dies my limbs were so raw and tender that
I could not bear my weight on them with-
out the skin cracking and bleeding, and
was oblidged to go about oil crutches.
Used the Cuticuka Remedies five months
and was completely and permanently,
cured. Mks. S. A. BROWN. Maiden, Mass.
References: Any citzien of Maiden, Mass.
I have been afflicted witti troublesome
skin disease, covering almost completely
the upper part of my body, causing my skin
to assume a copper-colored hue. It could
be rubbed off like danruff, and at times
causing intolerable itching and the most
intense suffering. I have used blood puri-
fiers, pills and other advertised remedies,
but experienced no relief until I procured
the Cuticuka Remedies, which although
usod carelessly and irregularly, cured me,
allaying that terrible itching, and restoring
my skin to its natural color. I am willing
to make affidavit to the truth of this state-

"Are. you the superintendent of this
road?" asked a fat, jolly man, clapping
the functionary on the back and shak-
ing hands with him enthusiastically.
"I am," replied the superintendent.
"Come and have a bottle of wine,"
shouted tho jolly man. "I want to
know you! Come and join me!"
The superintendent complied with a
smile, and fouiid himself in for a first-
"What I want," explained the jolly
man, in a whisper, "what 1 want is a
pass. I'm going about fifty miles up
tiic road and 1 want you to see me
"But I have no power," responded
the superintendent. """You should have
seen the general passenger agent about
a thing of that kind."
"Will you send him over?" asked the
jolly man, wiih a look of disappoint-
The G. P. A. appeared and the pro-
gramme was repeated.
"Hut I'm not the man!" exclaimed
the G. P. A. "I can't issue a pass.
You should havo called on the presi-
"Trot him out!" exclaimed the per-
tinacious pass grubber. "Let's have
him right over here!"
He took the president out for a drive,
wound up with a box at tho theatre,
then put in his request.
"I'd do it inn minute," protested the
president, "but your town isn't on the
line of our road. You'll have to go
ovei» the New York Central!"
Arid the unhappy man who had spent
seventy-live dollars trying to work a
pass, paid his dollar and a half for a
ticket and went on his way ruminating.
The other forenoon a way-worn look-
ing man, having a shirt or twfo tied up
in a ragsred handkerchief, made his
way up Fort street cast. Some folks
could have seen from his general air
that, while he knew exactly where he
was going, lie couldn't tell within forty
rods of what his reception would be.
He walked like a man who doubted,
ami he looked around him like one who
felt anxious. 11c linally turned in and
mounted the steps of a modest house,
and his knock at the door was finally
answered. The door was pulled open
about an inch, and a shrill voice ex-
"Go away from here!17
"I'll never do "it!" answered the man.
The door was closctl with a bang, but
ho siood right there and kept his eyes
on tiic knob. After three or four min-
utes it was opened again and a voice
"Go away or I'll call the police!"
"I'll never go away from my dar-
"Who's your darling!"
The door banged again. The man
was prepared for it, and he maintained
his place for full live minutes. At last
it opened and a voice piped out:
••You have been <rone two months!"
"Exactly, my darling."
"And you didn't send me a single
, , " O
"How could I when I never struck a
job? Darling. I've returned to thee."
"Go away—I've got a divorce."
"Oil, but I know better! Darling,
bid Your long-absent husband welcome
"Never!" and bang went tho door.
This time he coolly sat down and be-
gan to whistle. She went to an upper
window and looked down upon him,
and finally returned to the door ami
carefully opened it and said:
"You deserted me for two whole
months, and I had to take in boarders.
Go away, I have no further use for
"Katie, do you moan it?''
"Then it only remains for me to die.
I'll hang myself with that piece of rope
to this tree. Katie, darling, good-
She banged the door and ho proceed-
ed to aliix a bit of clothes line to a
limb and make ready the fatal noose.
He had everything nicely arranged
when she rushed out with:
"And it's more trouble you'd make
for your poor, weak wife, is it?" and
she fell upon him and Hung him over a
bush, and jammed him into a flower-
bed. and shoved him into tho house
with the remark:
••The wanderer has returned, but all
the welcome he gets will be laid on
with a club."—Detroit Free Press.

In the Island of Jamaica vessels are
loaded with bananas by negroes march-
ing in single tile, eacii with a bunch on

a loud, melodious voice, sits on deck

The commercial relations between El
Paso, Texas, and thw Mexican town, El
Paso del Norte, just across the river,
threaten to be seriously disturbed. A
Mexican dollar is valued at eighty-live
cents in American coin. Out neigh-
bors, not liking the depreciation of their
national coin, resolved to depreciate
ours. Their Board of Trade solemnly
decided that American silver dolkys
should be depreciated thirty cents, -or
pass current for eighty-live cents in
Mexican silver. The Mexican Board, of
Trade saw the folly of. their financial
scheme when it was put to the test by
one of the conductors on,the street car
line that connects the rival cities. . One
morning he started fnpn the American
side wiili a Mexican silver dollar.. On
arriving on the.other side ho-took a
drink of their native chain-lightning
whisky, price fifteen cents, lie was
given an American dollar in change.
He took a drink of equally bad whisky
on the American side, price fifteen
cents, and was given a Mexican dollar
in change. Ho repeated this at regular
intervals during the day, and at night
had the same Mexican dollar he started
out with. It is very likely the Board of
Trade will revise its queer system of
tinaucc. Mexican paper money is at
twenty-live per cent, discount.
There's a peculiar sensation in hav-
ing your eyeballs scalded as I did at the
Hot Springs, Va. Ever try it? They
boil hard, just like a couple of eggs.
The colored gentleman left mo in the
bath fifteen minutes, and then told mo
to come out. You know how shriveled
a piece of meat looks when it comes out
of the pot? that was my case. Then I
began to leak. I forget how many
pores there are iti a human body, but
every one of them was a living spring.

running into my eyes. But it was no
use. I'd like to see some of our able
beer drinkers go through one of these
hot baths. How they would spill beer
when they came out! It takes a good
four hours, such n bath. The actual
bathing and dressing consumes about
an hour, aud you have to lie down for
two or three to cool off.—Cor. Sew
