then may make her whole life mis
erable. IJut the troubles tliat are to be
feared have a positive remedy. Dr.
I'ierce's Favorite Prescription builds
up and strengthens the system, and
regulates and promotes every proper
function. It's a generous, suport
ing tonic, and a quieting, soothing
nervine a legitimate mediriue, not
a lx-verago, free from alcohol and
injurious drugs. It corrects and
cures, safely and surely, all those
delicate derangements, weaknesses,
and diseases etnliar to the sex.
A remedy that data cure is one
that can be guaranteed. That's
what the proprietors of " Favorite
Prescription " think. If it doesn't
give satisfaction, in every case for
which it's recommended, they'll re
fund the money. No other medicine
for women is sold on such terms.
Decide for yourself whether some
thing else sold by the dealer, is
likely to bo "just as good" for
yoa to buy.

Fresh (nrnnilirrn Are Healthy.
"Cncnniliers are a greatly maligned
vegetable," said a man who insists ujK.n
having vegetables freshly picked every
day from his own garden during the
summer. "They are considered by the
majority of jiersons to be unhealthy;
whereas if eaten within a few hours
after they are gathered they are, on the
contrary, very wholesome quite as
much so in my estimation as lettuce.
My family are all fond of them, and
partake of them freely throughout the
season; but I should not allow them to
eat them at all, unless I was sure of
It is ju that that makes all the dif
ference. My great-grandfather was hale

for old gentlemen: I only cite it to show
that my favorite vegetable has its sani

A Cautious Hero.
'Twas at the Sabbath school picnic.
Two maidens of uncertain age were
struggling in the water.
"Merciful heavens!" cried the pastor.
"Will 110 one save them? Is there no
swimmer among us?"
"Is there a jestice of the peace in the
crowd?" asked Tattered Stuyvesant, the
tramp, emerging from the bushes.
"I hold that office," answered a gentle
man. "But will"
"Well, then, ladies," shouted Tattered
Stuyvesant to the struggling maidens,
"hold up your hands and let the jestice
swear ye that I don't have to marry
either of ye and 111 plunge in. I'm heroic,
but not foolhardy. This is leap yearl"
Tramped Forty-live Miles to lie Married.
George Gleskel and Lena Ash, an elop
ing couple from Waterford, Spencer
county, Ky., arrived at Jeffersonville,
Ind., recently and were married. The
couple tramped forty-five miles, and on
reaching here had six dollars, five dol
lars of which went to pay for the license
and magistrate's fees. So exhausted was
the bride that she could scarcely stand
when the ceremony was performed. They
left for the ferryboat, where she slept
until the steamer reached Louisville,
from which city they retraced their step3

Jay Goullt r.onk.
Occasionally" some jwrsoii knocks j;t
the door of Jay Gould's office in the
Western Union building with a copy of
"The History of Delaware County, New
York, by Jay Gould," to sell. An im
pression exists in the minds of many
Ieople that Mr. Gould is desirous of
suppressing this publication as com
pletely as jfossible, and that he will jay
almost any price to get possession of the
few stray copies that are left. Resi
dents of Delaware county are authority
for the statement that several years ago
an agent of Mr. Gould's scoured that
county for these books and bought near
ly all of them at fancy prices. When
ever a copy of this particular history of
Delaware county is displayed in that
county at the present day the older resi
dents will advise the owner, "Jist you
take thet down ter New York, an Jay
Gould'll give yer thirty or forty dollars
fer it." It is certain that nobody in Mr.
Gould's office ever heard of his paying
any such price for one of those b oks.
And nolwdy is able to explain why Mr.
Gould should want to suppress the pub
lication, unle.M it is that he thinks there
is too much sentiment in it for a man of
his present reputation. New York
The Unreasoning Crowd.
Speaking of the queer things to be seen
on the street, it is really astonishing
how instinctively one person imitates an
other. A man with a passion for psy
chical research has been proving this by
6ome experiments which are, to say the
least of it, original. Going along about
dusk the other night in advance of a
small party of folk, he suddenly turned
out into the muddy street, as if avoiding
something in front. Unquestioningly
every person lieiiiud did the same thing
in s dte of t'ne mire.
It' isn't likely that they felt the full
hv.vr.i tous force of the incident hi quite
the way h? Md, however, when they saw
him face al. cut and walk calmly back in
the !ea ten path. The sheep went to all
the trouble of jumping over a bar of
dust, to be sure, but it would really
seem worth while if human ljeings could
think a little more independently and
for themselves. The truth of it is, it is
just this blind unreasoning herding to
gether that leads to half the accidents
and panics which are cropping up on all
sides. Boston Transcript.
Antidotes for Snake Poison.
The effect of snake bite depends partly
on the condition of the snake and partly
on that of the person bitten and the part
attacked. No effectual antidote has yet
been discovered. Ammonia and per
manganate of potassium will not smince,
although a solution of the latter will
take away the poisonous property of the
snake's venom if it be mixed therewith.
Immediate amputation of a bitten toe
i or finger is the best course, as the delay
of a few seconds may suffice to convey
the poison into the patient's circulation.
If from the nature of the part bitten
amputation cannot be performed, a very
tight ligature applied after cauterization
and sucking the part is the best course,
and the administration of stimulants is
generally recommended. Quarterly Re
view. Kice mid Wheat at Weddings.
Throwing rice and wheat at a wed
ding is a relic of an old Roman custom,
and has probably been common in Eng
land since Roman times. Brand gives
several authorities for it. Friend refers
to the case of the bride of Henry VII at
Bristol in 1486, when wheat was thrown
upon her with the greeting, "Welcome
and good luck!"
Rice is used similarly at weddings in
India, and the substitution of this grain
for wheat in our own country of late
years may be partly due to that fact;
but where wheat cannot readily be come
at rice would naturally suggest itself as
a substitute. Notes and Queries.
A I'bysician's Fees.
South Africa responds to modern in
novations. A recent traveler in Kaffir
land tells this incident:
As we were upsaddling, there passed
us a man driving a small flock of goats
and several head of cattle. This was
the husband of a lady physician who is
ruining the practice of the local witch
doctors, and he was taking home his
wife's fee for attending a patient.
