TOLD BY A SOCIETY GIRL
Something About Morphine. Cnlphur,
Mnlamni mid Other Thing.
From the Kvr nintf News. Kewark, N. J.
Among tho popular society leaders in East
Orange, X. J., Kmma L. SUdl, a eharminfr
young maideu, stands in tho foremost rank.
She is of a lovable disposition and tho light
of the social set iu which sho moves. For
two years sho has been a sick girl from in
ternal troubles peculiar to women, and hav
ing recently recovered, has given our
roporter the following interesting account:
"lustcad of improving under tho earn tf
my physician 1 became worse. For fivo
wofcks I was unable to get out of bed ami
about six o'clock each morning I suffered
horribly. My lips wore 're and lacerated
from the marks of my teeth, fcr in my efforts
to keep from screaming 1 sunk my teoth
deep into my lips. At such times I rolled
and tos.HPiliuit.il tho bed shook likeantpea
leaf and it finally got so serious that tho
doctor I won't tell you his name gave mo
pomo morphine pills to take. The very
thought of thcrn now makes mo shiver.
Those morphine piilssimplyput me to sleep
for awhile, and when 1 beciimo conscious
again my ngony was renewed.
"Tho piiin in my stomach and back was
more than 1 could stand. 'Your blood Is
poor,' said tho doctor, 'takcsulphur and mo
Jasses,' und 1 did until it was it great won
der that I was not a molasses cake. It was
time wasted in taking it bee an no 1 was not
benefited in tho leant; my suffering con
tinued, but by a mighty effort after being in
led so long. I got up. Oh, but I was a sad
sight th on. From 112 pounds I had fallen
to ninety ; my checks wer palo and sunken
nnillliuipe.il; yes. actually hobbled from
the oxtrenift pain in my sido. Then I read
of Dr. Williams' Pink Villa for Fulo People
and tho testimonial in tho Xnws inspired
mo with hope. I got tin) pills and took
them. Hefore manv days 1 began to im
prove and before I had finished one box I
felt as if I could go out end walk for miles.
I soon stoppod limping and through the
Pink Pills I soon bid goodbye to my head
aches while tho pain in my stomach and
back slowly but surely succumbed to the
influence of thesn pills that seem to bo ablo
to pi ii u ado all pain to leavo one's body.
Now 1 am as I used to boj well ond strong,
lighthearted and merry but never without
tho pills. Hie i have got some of them
now," nud from a nearby desk she banded
out one of tho boxes.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, fn a con
dojsod form, all the elements necessary U)
give new llfo and richness to the blood and
restore shattered norfrs. 'J hey ore oho u
spcrifio or troubles peculiar to females,
such as suppressions, irregularities, and all

worry, over-work, or excesses of whatever
nature. Pink Pills are sold in boxesfnever

MghtliiB a Lump With an Icicle.
The most curious experiment imajj
inablo is that of lighting a lamp with
an icicle. Vet, remarkablt; as it may
seem, it can easily be done, provided
you pet the right combination i con
nection with the ice. The experi
ment is very simple. Procure a smull
pieee of metallic potassium and place
it across tho wick tube, the wick junt
timeliing- tho metal. Now touch tho
potassium with tho ico and the water
thus chemically generated will in
stantly lake firt; and light the wicif.
Ito very careful, as a larjfe piece of
tho potassium is likely to explode.

In the year 1S91 the Ue Knlb Fence
Co. of Do Kalb, 111., doubled tho ca
pacity for producing their lines over
lSUa", which gave them an output of
20 miles per day. The demand for their
goods has been so great the past sea
son, that in order to be nble to supply
their trade, they havo been compelled
this year to double the capacity of 18'J4,
which now gives them an output of 40
miles per day.
This In itself speaks well for their
product and merits the attention and
inspection of our readers, and all that
are in need of smooth wire fencing of
any kind, and it will be to your inter

SEXATOJiS NOT UNITED
REPUBLICANS DIVIDED ON
A Majority of the Sennto Appenrtn Atl
vtitnle nu J:rrirt at. Iteorgauizsit Ion in
Itepnlill. nn Lines, lint Olifrr Memhi-rs
are Opposed to Such ftlnvemunt.
WAsmxfiTox, Nov. 2o. Opinions ara
decidedly at a variance amout' the I!c
publican Senators witli reference to
the reorganisation of the tscnate and
nothing definite will be known until
after the convening' of that body. Sen
ator .Sherman, who is chairman of tho
Republican caucus, expressed the
opinion to-day that the Republicans
would hold a conference early in tho
session for the consideration of this
question. A majority of the ltepub
lican Senators here appear to advocate
an effort at reorganization on Repub
lican lines, but some of tho older and
more conservative of t hem oppose a
Movement in this direction, contend
ing that it would be impolitic to as
sume control of uB'airs and take
charge of the committees without hav
inc; a working majority in the Senate.
Some Republican senators who favor
organization advance the idea that tho
Democrats will not demand a division
when the election comers, but allow
the Republicans to take Jt by default.
Democratic senators here tlo not con
firm this view, and the indications are
that they will hold the olliees until
the Republicans show themselves able
to take them. To secure this, the Re
publicans will have to obtain some of
the I'opulist, voles.
Senator l'cli'er, who is generally re
garded us the leader of the third
party, is advocatine; the maintenance
of mi independent position, and it is
considered probable that this advice
will be followed to the extent of put
ting a ticket in the field at the beifin
niptf of the contest if the Republicans
attempt re-organization. The Repub
licans are claiming, however, that
they will secure Senator Stewart'
vote and that Senator Jones also will
probably stand with them. These ac
quisitions would besutlicienttocnabli!
the Republicans to take the organiz
ation. It appears altogether probable that
the question will be postponed until
after the seating of the L tali senators,
which cannot happen until some time
in January or February, tlepcndmir
upon tin; expedition displayed in their
election by the L'tali Legislature. II
is altogether probable that by that
time the Republicans will bo in condi
tion to claim the organization and that
they will take it.
There will be an effort on the part
of some of the senators to compromise
the claims of the hiiver and anti-silver
Republicans in connection with tin
committee on finance by enlarging the
committee to eleven and giving the sil
ver men one of the new places and the
gold men the other.

The report of the Nicaragua canal

that the real demonetization of silver
took place in Is-i.'t, when tho weight of
tin! divisional coins was reduced about
7 percent. This, he says, was not an
accident, or an oversight; it was ex
pressly declared in the house of reprc
sentatircH that the intention was to
make gold the sole standard of value
in the large transactions, ami silver
subservient to it for small ones. The
act of i7.'t, be says, was only nominal.

A PATRIOTIC PIGEON.

Many instances are on record of
tenacity of memory on the part of
carrier pigeons, who are said never to
forget their first cote. None of these
instances are more remarkable, prob
ably, than that recorded of one of the
birds employed to carry messages into

domiciled in Paris, were taken out by
balloons, and after being laden with

A MARK TWAIN JOKELET.
He 1'roved to Mr. Mown Ihitt Ho Had

There is a story told in Hartford
about Mark Twain which is more
characteristic than funny, but it sug
gests a comfortable fashion. Mrs.
Harriet IJieeher Stowe lives a few
doors from Mark's house, and one fino
hot summer morning tha bolietniau
jester, while strolling out before
breakfast in a smoking jacket and
blippc.'s und without either collar or
necktie, found the venerablo au
thoress sitting on her veranda, and so
went insitle and made a morning call
of a quarter of an hour or so. Then
he lounged homo to breakfast and
shocked his wife by telling her that
he had been calling on Mr,. Stowe.
She advised him to dress after break
fast and call again and apologize.
Mark knew a better way. He sent a
collar and necktie by one of his chil
dren, by way of sample, nnd Mrs.
Stowe expressed herself as perfectly
Couldn't Smell In the lUrli.
An old gentleman too impatient for
his hot water ami a light to be
brought rushed into tho kitchen,
seized hold of the f':.st p:tn on tho

dark room. On plunging his hands
into tho wash hand basin ho was
amazed to find that it contained some
thing thicker than water -that he had,
in fact, spoiled tho first couro of his
dinner by trying to wash in the soup.
Polling over with passion ho began
to upbraid his wife, and on her sug
gesting that he might have smelted it

1 One of the oldest trees standing in
England is the "Tortworth"' chestnut,
which, so far back as the reign of Ste
phen in ILL", was so remarkable for
its size and antiquity that it was r c
ognized U3 the terminal boundary of
tho manor of Tort worth in Glo s-
tershire. The womlrously old tree
was cited by Dr. Kueard in his con
troversy with Dailies Harrington as a
convincinc proof of the chestnut be
ing indigenou.s toCrcat I'.ritain. It is
supposed to have attained it maturity
in tho reign of Kgbert. In JTimtho
Tortworth chestnut was .".0 feel in cir
cumference anl f.'j feel high, and
many more centuries of tranquil ex
ibteuce Were predicted fur it.

A Sa'et Kntrelopa.
A New Jersey woman has patented
a device for aa improvement in en
velopes, in answer to the recent in
vitation of the government to submit
ideas and designs for means to detect
tampering with sealed letters. Her
invention is very simple, merely tho
printing of a small device of. any
bhape on the under sido of the flap of
the gummed envelope in a sensitive
fluid, fixed when dry, but which will
run or spread on tho application of
steam or moisluro, thus showing
'vhether tho seal has been molested.
It is a Pleasure
To recommend Hood's Sarsaparilla to all
alllicted with blood or skin diseases. My
blood was out of order, and I suffered for
years from psoriasis, I tried several
remedies without benefit. After taking
for two months I was restored to my for-inei-good
health and feel like adittVrent
person. As a blood purifier I think
Hood's Sarsaparilla lias no equal."
