No healthy person need fear'any
dangerous consequences from an
attack of. la grippe if properly
treated. It is much the same as a
severe cold and requires precisely
the same treatment. Remain quiet
ly at home and take Chamberlain'
Cough Kemedy as directed for a se
vere cold and a prompt and com
plete recovery is sure to follow.'
This remedy also counteracts any
tendency of la grippe to result in
pneumonia. Among the many
thousands who have used it during
the epidemics of the past two years
we have yet to leurn of a single
case that has not recovered or that
has resulted in pneumonia. 25 and

"I have just recovered from a sec

says Mr. Jas. O. Jones, publisher of
the leader, Mexica Texas. ''In the
latter case I used Chamberlain's
Cough remedy,. and I thins with
considerable success, only being in
bed a little over two days, against
ten days for the first attnek. The
second attack, I am ratsiied. would
have been equally as bad as the
lirst but for the use of this remedy,
as I had to go to bed in about six
hours after being struck with it,
while in the first case I was able to
atiend to business about two days

. That delicious fungus growth ' scien
tifically called by a big and strange name,
bat commonly known as the mushroom .
is just beginning to come plentifully
into the local markets, and they are pre
pared to stay till late into the fall.
Those which are found in the vege
table stalls in Washington market are
of artificial culture and are now selling
at about seventy-five cents a pound. A
month ago they brought 1 1.35 a pound,
and a month hence fifty cents or even
less will buy a goodly Bupply of the nu
tritious and delicious white stemmed
and brown topred fungi.
Said the ruddy faced and white apron
ed marketman to me today between the
puffs of his perfecto:
"Yes, I sell a good many mushrooms,
especially during Lent. Those that
come in now are raised in hothouses in
beds underneath the plant shelves and
they come pretty high, although they
are getting down in price lately. I have
sold them as high as three dollars a
pound. Later on iu the spring we get
them from the farmers and others who
raise them in their cellars, in shaded
places and even in caves, and during
warm weathex men and women and
boys and girls who gather them in
fields and pastures bring them in to the
city. Then we sell them for almost
nothing as low as ten cents a pound
sometimes. Most of our customers who
buy mushrooms are people of means,
and although we sell great quantities of
them, the people as a whole don't seem
to appreciate and understand them, as I
should think they would."
The jolly marketman is right, for
mushrooms are not appreciated as they
should be. Many people have eaten
mushrooms only when the canned arti
cle has been served sprinkled sparingly
over a steak. There is a vast difference
between the canned mushroom and the
crisp, fresh and appetizing fungus that
one can now buy in any of the large
markets. New York Telegram.
How It Is Done lu Chlua.
Though the Chinese diplomatist moves
slowly, there are some Chinese manda
rins whose ways .are - expeditious and
summary. Under the auspices of Cliang
Chih-tung foreign engineers are pros
pecting in the neighborhood of Hankow.
They were commended the other day by
the viceroy to the care and protection of
a minor mandarin. This personage,
rooted in the traditions of the past,
viewed the advent of the "Fanqui" with
disapproval. . '
He penned a remonstrance, setting
forth that it would be unsafe to allow
the earth dragon, who has lain undis
turbed since the time of Confucius, to
be profanely tampered with. The coun
try folk he explained, were a rough set,
who, on seeing strange men with strange
instruments in their hands .probing and
peering into the earth, would be sure to
be roused to mischief, and as he pro
fessed himself powerless to restrain the
riot that might ensue, he prayed his ex
cellency to reconsider the matter.
The viceroy took in the situation at a
glance. He wrote in reply to say that,
inasmuch as the local official did not
seem equal to cope with the situation,
he was sending five deputies, -with boats
and followers, to afford the foreigners
safe and suitable escort all at the ex
pense of the remonstrant. Their visit
is said to have cost the worthy magis
trate some 750, and since then Chang
Chih-tung has not been troubled with
any more remonstrance from the zeal
ous defender of the earth dragon. Man

Delightful Mr. Einstein.
The truly democratic form of our
government, in which "one man is as
good as another," was illustrated in a
little incident at the Capitol the other
day. A subcommittee of tho house ap
propriations committee having charge
of certain branches of the District ex
penditures had before them recently
that distinguished citizen of the District
of Columbia, the official dog catcher,
known as Poundmaster Einstein, with
the purpose of slicing down his salary
from the princely sum of $1,200 a year
It did not slice, however, and one of
the members of the committee explains
their change of heart by saying that be
fore the examination was concluded Mr.
Einstein so charmed the members of the
committee with his stories of excursions
made with senators in search of black
bass in the streams about Washington
that the question of reducing his salary
was absolutely abandoned.
"We want ' him to come again," said
one of the committeemen, "and as for
his salary, we would not cut him down a
dollar." Washington Cor. Albany Jour

Tax Collector Andrew Bouchou, of
Hancock, turned over as a part of his
funds to Supervisor Wheeler Jan. 12 a
queer bank note. It passed for a twenty
dollar bill, and but for the watchfulness
of the cashier in Nichols1 banking house,
in this village, it might have gone un
challenged. The cashier at once discov
ered that the front of the bill was a
twenty, but the back was a five. They
were the split halves of two genuine
bank -notes pasted together. The
schemer's profit will depend on whether
he passes the mate to it for twenty dol
lars by proffering back np. By doing so
he will have made fifteen dollars clear
on . the transaction. The collector had
taken it in for taxes. Hancock (X. Y.)

A new tent is about to be introduced

a company has liet n formed to provide a

nature Is also contemplated, and before
long it will be quite natural for a host to
give a theater party in his own drawing
There is always a peculiar fascination
for the general public in listening by
means of the telephone to entertain
ments which are given at a distance.
One of the most attractive features of
electrical exhibitions is always the tele
phone section, where a number of tele
phones provide entertainments "on tap"
from theaters and concert halls. This
was particularly noticeable at tho Paris
electrical exhibition held some years
ago, and at the Lenox lyceum in New
York. The telephone section was crowd

The Struggle for Dread in Vienna.
The distribution of bread to the poor
of Vienna took place Tuesday between
11 o'clock and noon, in order to make
6ure that only the unemployed received
alms. Though 6,200 large loaves, which
had cost 1,200 florins, or 100, were
given out, several hundred starving peo
ple had to go away empty handed. The
scenes witnessed were perhaps the worst
that have occurred as yet. It was piti
able in tho extreme to see wretch
edly clad women, with babies in arms,
and children, fighting as for their lives
for a loaf of bread, into which, hot as it
was from the bakery; they cut like hun
Similar scenes were witnessed at the
distribution of bread to men. About
twenty people fainted in the crush, and
those who saw the bitter disappointment
of the many who, after waiting for
hours, finally received nothing, will
never forget the spectacle of human
misery and want. Four thousand two
hundred loaves were given away yester
day, when the crush was so enormous
that a number of poor women, with ba
bies in their arms, and several old men
fainted away and required medical at

A marine experiment of great iinHH
tance to Milwaukee i$ announced. T?ie
Toledo, Ann Arbor anl Northern Mich
igan railroad is about to build a large
ferry steamer to test the feasibility of
carrying trains of cars across Lake Mich
igan from Kewaunee to Frankfort. Tho
new steamer will cost a quarter of a
million of dollars, and will be large
enough to carry forty freight cars, and
she is to be fast enough to make the
runs across the lake between the points
named in about five hours. The distance
is sixty miles.
The ferrying of cars in this manner
will result in a great saving, as
it costs from six to twelve dol
lars a car to make the transfer
of freight from the cars to the steam
ers, and besides, the loss through break
age incident to such transfers will be
prevented. : It is thought the experiment
will prove successful, as freight trains
have been thus transferred for years be
tween Cape Charles City and Newport
News, a distance of forty miles, across
the mouth of Chesapeake bay, where the
water is sometimes very turbulent.
An Imperial Chemist.
Prince Lucien Bonaparte has be
queathed to England his precious collec
tion of mineral and chemical products.
This collection contains specimens of the
very greatest value on account of their
rarity, among these being pieces of gold
and platinum which are absolutely
But the gems of the collections are
two specimens of those exceedingly rave
metals irridium and germanium. The
former, which is worth three times the
price of platinum, is as large as a horse
chestnut. As to the piece of germanium,
although smaller in size, its enormous
value will be understood when one re
flects that.it ia worth sixty times its
weight in gold.
The whole collection was prepared in
the prince's laboratory, he making the
most difficult experiments with his own
hands, for he was one of the most dis
tinguished chemists of the day. It is
interesting to note that his chief and al
most his only assistant in his chemical
researches was his wife, the princess.

The Chinese system of government
lacks entirely tho progressive and uni
fying element of popular election. The
people have no voice in the choice of
their rulers, and the rulers consider the
people as so many sheep to bo fleeced.
The officials are paid starvingly low
salaries, and many offices are oeijly
bought. Corruption and extortion may
therefore be said . to le almost sanc
tioned, the only restraint being the dread
of insurrection and the power of guilds,
clans and secret societies. There is im
perfect protection from robbers and
pirates, many villages preferring to sub
sidize robber bands rather than to have
to deal with the worse foimof robbery
practiced by the officials. Westminster
