can arrest the
suffer from Indigestion
progress of that painnn
malady by the use of an after-dinner
pill, so composed that it will frive tone
to the stomach, prevent heartburn, rouse
the liver to healthful action, invigorate
the kidneys, and thus, through the activity
of these organs, promote the natural
movement of the stomach and bowels.
Ayer's Pills are bo compounded that
their action, though mild, effectually pro
duces the above results. They also, In
curing Constipation, remove the cause of
Biliousness. iJlver Complaint, Kidney Dis
ease, Rheumatism, and many other serious
contain no mineral nor poisonous sub
stance, and do not pripe unless the
bowels are irritated, and even then their
influence is healing. To continue their
effect in constipated or chronic cases, they
need only be taken in diminishing instead
of increasing doses. For seamen, and In
habitants or travelers iu sparsely settled
countries where physicians arc not at
hand, they are of inestimable value.
There is hardly a sickness they will not
alleviate, and in most cases cure, if taken
promptly. To young girls Just entering
upon womanhood, and to women whose
period of maternity is drawing to a close,
Ayer's Pills, In moderate doses, merely
sufficient to ensure regular action of the
- bowels, will be found of
i Incalculable Value.

ITow Crime Kuna In St teaks.
Glancing over the reports as they con: la
Lere every day from the diireivnt diktricU, it
trikes me very often that everything teems
to run in streaks. In the past three weeks
tlittre hare been four or Ave cases of criminal
a-ssault following each other; then Kiiniiltanc
ously wo had two or three cast of incest on
hand at once. There have been three jicr
ona murdered with stones in two weeks. Two
men, friends and neighbors, have committed
suicide, ono emulating the other in everything
except making a better job of it. Suicides
always follow tuch other that way. Let one
person take a dose of rat poison, and it seems
that there were two or three people just wait
ing for some one else to lead oir and they go
yGt by the same route.
It's the same with all affrays. Rome nights
there will bo in different put ts of the city
three or four stubbing or shooting affrays,
and then there wci't lie a thing for two or
three days, ierhas. Some morning, look
ing over the reports of arrests, you'd think
tho whole town was out on a drunk the night
before, and then again there nro not more
than three or four hero and there in the dis
tricts. There were for two days recently not
less than six cray people picked up iu the
Central district It looks to mo as if nt differ
ent times there's something in the utmosphere
that inclines men in a particular manner to
do certain things. Chief of Police in Globe
Democrat The Government Taxidermist's lluiiulo.
ilr. Ilornaday, tho government taxider
mist, has a herd of queer looking buffaloes iu
his studio in tho old armory building devoted
to tho fi--.li commission. They are the hulks
or insides on which tho hides aro to bo
stretched. Mr. Ilornaday does not use tho
skeletons of tho animals hi mounting them,
but makes up wooden ones. The whole herd,
when done, will bo mounted iu, the National
museum, and tho poor, old, moth eaten effigies
now on exhibition will lo burned. As soon
as Mr. Ilornaday finishes the bull buffalo, on
which he will expend tho greatest pains, it
will bo placed out in the Smithsoniun grounds,
where earth and background will resemble as
much as possible the animal's native plains,
aud tho taxidermist, rigge J up in cowboy hat,
leggings and hunting shirt, mounted on kii
broncho, cinched and loaded exactly as he
was in Montana, will go through tho panto
mime of shooting the old beast again. During
the performance several instantaneous photo
graphs of the piece will bo taken. This bull
is the finest buffalo Mr. Ilornaday secured
while out on his official hunt. Ho was tho
lust one seen, and his captor rodo up along
side and had opportunity to study the nob'e
animal for several minutes before shooting
him. Mr. Ilornaday even dismounted and
sketched the old fellow. This has been of
great advantage in stuffing and mounting
liim. Washington Cor. Now York Sun.
A Ueview of Troops on Ilicycles.
Oen. Boulanger has just boon holding a cav
alry review of a novel kind. A score of cor
poruls from tho Joinville training school went
through their evolutions before him a day or
two ago mounted on magnificent veloci
pedes, Tho comiosition of tho little troop
resembled that of tho regular mounted force
of the country; tho bicyclists representing the
light, tho tricyclists tho heavy cavalry.
The minister has decided to have a certain
proiwrtion of the men in the infantry regi
ments trained to tho use of the velocipede,
tho utility of these machines for the transmis
sion of orders and the interchange of com
munications between the different divisions
of an army having been satisfactorily estab
lished in practice. Their employment will,
for one thing, leave all tho Horses of the force
available for the work in which their services
are indispensable. The bicycle has been
found to give better results on the whole than
the tricycle, and it is probable that some form
of the two wheeled machine will be definitely
adopted for general use. St. James' Gazette.
A Memento of Heeclier.
No more curious memento of Beecher ex
ists than that owned by Edison, the inventor
of tho phonograph. That instrument for im
pressing on a soft metal sheet tho utterances
of the human voice, and then emitting it
again by the turning of a crank, could never
be put to any very valuable use, and Edison
has only gained from it a few thousand dol
lars in royalties from exhibitors. But he
utilized it to make a collection of famous
voices. Since he became famous his visitors
have included hundreds of celebrities. In
stead of asking them for their autographs or
photographs he has in two or three hundred
instances requested them to speak a few
sentences into a phonograph. He has kept
tho plates in a cabinet, and occasionally he
runs some of them through the machine,
which sends out the words exactly as uttered.
Edison is probably the only man who can re
vive tho silenced voieo of the great preacher.

The Panama Canal.
W. II. Greenhalgh, of Aspinwall, is in
Philadelphia, and says concerning tho Pan
ama canal: "I went over tho route of the
canal two weeks ago, and I found M. de
Lesseps' hopes of completing the work in
three years not only improbable but impos
sible, lie says in the interview that in three
years vessels will bo able to pass through the
canal as easily as they now go through the
Suez canal. The truth of tho matter is that
only fifteen miles of the canal have been cut
out. Thirty miles still remain, part of which
is a hill and a mile of which is of solid rock.
They have already spent $200,0SJ0,0O0 on it,
and the work at present is almost at a stand
still. "-Chicago Tribune.
A l'ocket Full of Fish. Hooks.
A talented professor asserts that the "light
fingered gentry" are continually found to
have been left handed from infancy. He has
ascertained this interesting fact by walking
about shy neighborhoods with an assortment
of fish hooks of all sizes fixed iu his pockets.
An absent minded friend of ours tried this
"cly faker" trap once once only. In his for
getful way he put his bund into a pocket to
draw out his cigar case. Wo took him to an
excellent surgeon, who managed to get his
digits into something like shape after three
months' careful treatment The bill was
moderate only about 50. London J ud.
Paris' Proposed Great Tower.
The proposed great tower for the exhibition
of 1SSU in Paris is not favored by French au
thors and artists. As it is to le twice as high
as the tower of Rouen cathedral, they say it
will overlook the city "like a black factory
chimney. It will dwarf everything, while it
will compel all eyes to gaze upon it. "A
hateful column of bolted sheet iron" will hu
miliate the finest monument of Paris. These
and many other equally strong characteriza
tions are made in a protest signed by the most
distinguished literary men of France.
They Throttled Satan.
At a recent masquerade in Portland, Ore.,
a number of the maskers, who bad attracted
attention from their dress and antics, which
were those of the Salvation Army, formed a
circle in the middle of tho floor, and then a
tall, athletic 3-oung man, who personated
Satan, burst into the ring and tried to break
it up. The Army rose as a man, throttled
Satan, threw him down and wiped the flooi
with him. New York Sun.

The saying that "snow u the poor
man's manna," is true in the spring of
the year. This last snow, on the 27th,
was more bencfical to the grass and small
grain sown than if so much rain fell.
Whatever the wcatlrer is on the first three
days of any season, suy this spring, will
determine what the weather will be for
the next three months of the season, is
notional all moonshine. The paying
"Coming in like a a Lamb, going out a
Lion," goes to show that in such folks'
imagination they imagine real lambs
and lions which determine the weather.
Superstitiou isn't dead yet. There is no
reason in it. Any three days of the mid
dle month is as servicable to say, as to
say the first three days of the month.
The weather will be just what it will be;
no man knows contrary. It may be what
it was on the first three days.
