After Specialist Failed to Cure Her In. tenr.e Itching Eczema Had Been Tortured and Disfigured But Was Soon Cured of Dread Humor. "I contracted eczema and Buffered Intensely for about ten months. At times I thought I would scratch my self to pieces. My face and arms wero covered with large red patches, bo that I was ashamed to go out. I was advised to go 'to a doctor who was a specialist In skin diseases, but I received very little relief. I tried every known remedy, with the samo results. I thought I would never get bet ter until a friend of mlno told me to try the Cullcura Remedies. So I tried them, and after four or five applications of Cutlcura Ointment I was relieved of my unbearable Itching. I used two sets of the Cutlcura Remedies, and I am completely cured.

One of Prof. Huxley's most Interest ing lectures was entitled "On a Tiere of Chalk." Chalk Is. a species of lime stone made up mostly of the shells of minute organisms, which appear to good advantage only under the micro scope. The northern portion of France and the southern shores of Kngland are wholly made up of chalk cliffs, which present a very striking appear ancethe old name for England, Al bion, being derived from a word signi fying this white appearance. It is found that In the deep sea dredings these minute organisms which consti tute the chalk formation are ttlll ac cumulating, though at a very slow rate. Chalk is therefore supposed to be a deep seu formation. Rocks of corresponding age In other portions of the world are known as cretaceous, the word being derived from the Latin word creta, signifying chalk. These formations occupy a wide belt In the states west of the Missouri river, extending from Texas Into Brit ish America, but there is not very much true chalk such as we are fa miliar with in the schoolroom in this area. The rocks, however, are made up of a species of shells, which are very beautiful and preserve still their Iridescent color. Another Interesting locality where chalk Is found Is over the hills of Pal estine Mount Olivet and many of the summits of mountains further south in Palestine, and the hill on which Nazareth Is built, being of that age and consisting, in considerable part, of pure chalk. The chalk formations lie in about the middle of the geological horizon and are several million years old. nient of lime Is united to ono unit of carbon und two of oxygen, which forms the deadly poison known as car bonic acid gas. All the limestone in the world, therefore, represents such nn amount of carbonic acid gas with drawn from the atmosphere, that should It be all set free, man and most land animals would find it Impossible to live in It. Those familiar with burning lime must have had their attention called to this fact by the deadly nature of the gas that settles around the lime kiln. The burning of lime consists in applying such a degree of heat that flie carbonic acid gas is expelled from the limestone, leaving a simple form of lime, which reunites with oxygen when water is admitted to It. It Is this carbonic acid expelled by heat which forms the deadly gas of lime Kilns, making it dangerous for chil dren or animals to lie down and sleep in close proximity to them. SURPRISED AT THE SCHEDULE Colored Man Felt He Was Being Rail roaded Into the Class of 'High Financiers." . A colored man was tried the other day before a Charlestown court for stealing some clothes from a young white man. A pretty clear case was made out against the colored man and he confessed. "I reckon I ain't got uothiu' to say, white folks," he said with humility, "'ceptin' hit's jes laik it Is." "Well, since you admit your guilt." said the Judge, "I wilt try to make It light for you. Hut tli..t wo will have to get an estimate of the value of the lothing. Mr. Plaintiff, what do you alu these articles at?" "The dress suit cost me $S0, your honor," replied the young man. "the overcoat $7.1 and the silk hat $10." "Mr. .ledge," broke in the accused, I'd l ik ter say des one word befo' you goes any fudder." "All right; go ahead." "I submit dat I tuk dem clo'es, boss man, hut at no sich prices ns dem!" Encouraging. "Tell me frankly, sir, what do you think of my daughter's voice?"

Purely Vegetable SMALL PILL. SMALL DOSE. SMALL PRICE. Coming down to our own line, we find the process of limestone forma tion still going on with great rapidity In certain localities. The peninsula of Florida illustrates this In the most striking measure. Sea shells are so abundant all along the east coast of Florida that they are washed up upon the shore In windrows, forming indeed tho entire shore line, while as one pro ceeds to the interior of the state he finds successive windrows of shells that have formerly formed the shore line, showing how the land has grown by these slow increments. These shells' as they are rolled by the water are broken up and much of them ground into fine powder, when they, all together, become cemented Into a loose rock. The buildings of that re gionespecially theold fort at St. Augustine are constructed of tnis rock, known as coqulna. In striking contrast with the older limestone rocks, this on the coast of Florida is but slightly cemented, and forms a mass that would not endure the pressure which rests upon the foundations of very tall buildings, ltut on .going to the other end of the geo logical scale, we find in the older for mations limestones originally formed In the same way with those in Florida, but now compacted into most solid blocks, having been, ns the geologists say, "metamorpuoseu uiruu&u iuim subjection to heat and pressure, btiu in many of these very old limestone rocks forms of the shells of wiiicn they are composed are perfectly pre served, and the age of the rock is de termined by the character of these shells, the earlier rocks having been produced by the more primitive forms of life. The forms of sea life which have contributed to build up the starta of limestone are exceedingly various. Among the most Interesting are the corals which have contributed to this result from the earliest times to tho present. Corals are forms of animal life which are attached to the sea bot tomthe animal leaving his shell be low him as lie dies, and continuing to live in the upper story, thereby grad ually adding to the f-olid foundation from which he started. In the Pacific ocean and Indian ocean, and Indeed In most tropical re gions, corals are still vigorously at work building up reefs around the shallow shores of Islands and contt nents. In tho Pacific ocean these reefs take upon themselves a circular shape, oftentimes with deep water upon the outside, and inclosing a large area of shallow water within the circle. A most interesting theory of Dar win and' Dana to account for theso circular reefs or "atols," as -they are called, is that tho coral Insect began to build up his structure in the shal low water surrounding a mountain peak when the whole bed of the ocean was slowly sinking. As the coral could not endure the deeper water be yond, he continued to build up, with a perpendicular face outward, while as the ocean bed sank, tho inclosure between the newly started reef and the mountain peak would remain free because of the sediment washing down from the mountain, which would In terfero with tho growth of tho coral Thus it is brought about that in many cases these circular reefs surround u body of shallow water, from whose center a mountain peak arises, while In other cases the settling of the ocean bed has gone so far that the mountain peak has disappeared and there Is within simply a body of pro tected water, which makes an excel lent harbor, if there is any entrance to it.

In order to get tho desired st'ffuess, it Is usually necea Bary to use so much starch that tho beauty and fineness of tho fabric is hidden behind a pnsto of varying thickness, which not only destroys tho appearance, but also affects the wear ing quality of tho goods.

Among the most Interesting" lime stone strata of the earlier ages are the cornlferous and the Trenton lime stone, which appear in special develop ment In the islands In the western Dart of Lake Erie, and in an area about Cincinnati, though the name was derived from Trenton, N. Y., where the rocks were first carefully studied. The cornlferous and lren- ton limestones are favorites every where for burning lime, while the solid blocks make the most substantial building material. The great locks at the Soo were built of cornlferous lime stone from Kclley Island in Lake Erie, like Solomon's temple, every stone being fashioned at the quarry and carried directly to its place in the great structure, many hundred miles away. This limestone Is also sought for very widely for the flux In smelting Iron, its freedom from impurities giv ing it special value. The extent of these deposits over the United States Is very surprising. While they appear a' tho surface nt comparatively few places, they are penetrated by deep drill holes almost everywhere In the Mississippi basin, and In the Hudson river and Mohawk valleys. From what we have already said of the origin of chalk and of the penin sula of Florida, it is easy to see that this extensive limestone stratum over the Mississippi valley Implies in early geological ages an equally extensive expanse of ocean, which was slowly filling up with the sediment in some places, but with sea shells In others. The amount of limestone in the world Is enormous, belnK sufficient to make a Btratum hundreds of feet thick over almost tho whole habitable world. In this there Ib brought to light a method of nature to clear the atmos phere ot Impurities which Is very in teresting. Lime Itself, ns a mineral. Is a very different substance from the llmestono with which wo nre familiar. Limestone, as we onllnarly know It, Is a carbonate of lime; that Is, an ele- Among the limestones of great In terest are the various forms of mar ble which have been sought for the world over for their beauty of color and their fineness of texture. These marbles mostly belong to the very oldest geological formations, and ap pear in close proximity to granite rocks, where they have evidently been subjected to heat and great pressure, as they were burled deeply in the earth and transformed or metamor phosed into their present shape. The usual color of marble Is white, but they are often variegated with almost every beautiful color derived from mineral ingredients, especially Iron and copper, giving them a red or green or yellow cast. There are also extensive deposits of lime which are not dependent upon the nction of animal life, but are chemically deposited, especially in the viciulty of springs whoso water Is overcharged with carbonate of lime In solution. As this water trickles down from the roofs of caverns and falls upon the bottom, the evaporation leaves a certain amount, which ar ranges itself in the form of stalactites at the top and stalagmites at tho bot tom of the cavern, the material being arranged in layers, which are often somewhat variegated in color and form objects of great beauty. The more extensive deposits are formed In connection with warm springs in the volcanic regions, making what Is called travertine, which Is much sought lifter ns an- ornamental stone. Innovation.
