SOME FACTS REGARDING THE
RAPID INCREASE OF
Do not bo Alarmed but Look for
Heart troubles, at least niong Ameri
cana, are certainly increasing and while
this may be largely due to worry and
excitement of American business life, it is
more often the result of weak stomachs,
and poor digestion.
Kal organic heart disease is mcuraoie,
but not one case in a hundred ol heart
trouble, is organic.
The close relation Oetween neari
trouble and poor digestion is because
both organs are controlled by branches
of the same great nerves, tue sympa
thetic and Pneu monastic.
In Another wav.a so. the heart is anect-
ted bv that form of noordigestiou, which
causes gas and fermentation from half
digested food; there is a leeiing oi op
pression and heaviness in the chest,
caused by pressure of the distencieu
stomach on the heart and lungs, inter
fering with their action;hence arises pal
pitation and short breath.
Poor digestion also poisons the blood,
makes it thin and watery, which irritates
and weakens the heart.
The most sensible treatment for heart
rrnn hlea in tr imnrove the digestion and
to insure the prompt assimilation of food.
This can best be done by the regular
use, after meals, of some safe, pleasant
and effective digestive preparation, like
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, which may
be found at most drug stores and which
contaiu valuable, harmless digestive ele
ments, in a pleasant, convenient form.
It is safe to say that the regular, per
sistent use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
at meal time, will cure any form of stom
ach trouble except cancer of the stomach.

Not a Midamj Tussaud but a TuisautI
Just tin Same.
An amusing anecdote" of the dock
strike has been related by Mr. John
Burns to a London correspondent and
it is repeated in the Argonaut It is
a story of two suits of clothes. One
day the newness of Mr. Burns' s attire
aroused the suspicions of a political
adversary, who accused him on the
strength of this evidence of "making
a fine thing out of the poor dockers."
Hereupon Mr. Burns insisted on re
lating the history of his new suit. It
was very simple. Mme. lussaud be
ing desirous of adding a wax model of
Mr. Burns to her collection, she ex
pressed a wish to present him faith
fully "in his habit as he lived."
"Very well," said Mr. Burns; "but if
you want to take my clothes, it is only
fair to give me another rig-out" So
she did, and hence the gloss of
novelty. The explanation was ac
cepted, but sometime afterward Mr.
Burns once more appeared in a new
suit, which was so evidently not the
same suit that his old antagonist sar
castically shouted: "You didn't get
them at Mme. Tussaud's." It ap
peared that Mr. Louis Tussaud
had also set up a model of Mft Burns
in his rival establishment, in Kegent
street, and ho. too, desired to strip the
dockers' champion of his garmenta
In common fairness, the latter was
bound to stipulate for the same terms.
rims, once more, the explanation
was simple. The suspicious suit was
not Mme. lussaud s but it was a
Tussaud suit for all that.
The Hunter's Story.
(From the Post, Houston, Texas,)
Onedav last autumn a reporter of
this paper and a popular drummer start
ed from Orange, Texas, for a drive across
country; the reporter on business for his
paper and the drummer to sell goods.
On the return trip they nearn tne report;
of a shot gun, and soon fczra I'eet
emerged from the wood with his dogs
The drummer knew him. "You are look
ing wonderfully spry," said thedrummer,
how came the changer
"That's all right and I am right glad
to tell you and that newspaper friend of
yours what wrought an Tins cuange in
me." said Air. t'eet as ne toon a seat on
a fallen log alongside our buggy.
Sixtv-two years ago 1 came to lexas,
seven of which I have spent on yonder
farm. One day while sitting in my chair
I grew dizzy, fell backward out of it,
partly lost my power of speech for a t ime
and, to ne Drift, I was taKen wun n
stroke of paralysis. For months and
rears mv wife purchased medicines of all
kinds for me, 1 took them regularly but
to no avail and 1 had given up all hope
of ever being relieved of my suffering
when I was requested toue Dr, Williams'
Pink Pills. hen I sent for them 1 was
suffering intense pains in my left side,
feeling absolutely worthless physically
and suffering a loss in my weight, of
about twenty pounds. To tell you the
truth I had no faith in them when they
did arrive for had I not spent money
aftermone"y without receiving a particle
of benefit. But I changed my mind ere I
had taken the contents of the first box
for I felt a decided and constant im
provement oil around and every mem
berofiny family noticed it also. I kept
on improving every day, by and by I
could walk as well as ever, just as you
see me here, and all this was accom
plished by taking the contents of about
half a dozen tioxes ol ur. Williams i inK
Pills according to directions. Now I
keep them in our medicine chest all the
time and would not be without them
under anv circumstances. My wife has
been taking the pills lately owing to the
weak condition of her system and she
too, claims that they are benefiting her
right along. Yes sir, to Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills 1 certainly attribute the
change for the better you see in me to
day and I am ready to commend thein
as a great remedy in cases for which
they are intended. Yes sir, for the bene
fit of thesick I cannot help but say some
thing on every occasion about these
wonderful pills and I do so gladly, too."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain all the
elements necessary to give new life and
richness to the blood and restore shat
tered nerves. Tbey are for sale by all
druggists, or may be had by mail from
Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, Sche

BEAU AS A LUNATIC.

A Very Kerasrkahle Case The Interest
toe Uurrf Arises a t Whether Ani
mals Slav Not He Mentally Inbal
aneed. HE imprisonment
of a black bear in
a private Western
asylum to be treat
ed for temporary
insanity must hae
appeared to many
to be an Incredible
news item when It
was published. But
there appears to be
no doubt of the
main facts. The bear was of the order
tirso vulgus known as black. He had
some special talents; whether laid on
by a persevering showman or innate in
his bear cerebrum we do not know. But
ho was valuable as a performer, and
any vagaries of hia bear reason was a
loes to his owner. When, therefore,
either under stress of exhlbltory work
or Irregularity of diet, he began to ex
hibit signs of shall we say mental or in
stinctive disturbance, such as sucking
uis paws out of season and eating the
beer bottles after drinking the lager,
hia master consulted a local alienist,
and under advice his bearshlp was
transferred to a respectable asylum to
bo treated according to the most ad
ranced practice in melancholia and
frenzy, says the New York World.
This was In exact accord with the
tendency of both modern mercy ana
modern science, neither of which be
lieves in sacrificing the humblest beast
so long as he can furnish any informa-
tioc to man.
Well, the bear having been taken in
charge by an enthusiastic savant, was
carefully watched and tended, and as
he gave himself for the first three days
tip to an almost uninterrupted siesta, It
was hoped that he would sleep oft his
mental or nervous trouble. But on the
fourth day he woke up ready for busi
ness, and exhibited such well defined
symptoms of advanced hysteria that it
was thought best to get him into a
padded cell, where his complaint could
be the more conveniently diagnosed
through the bars. It was while in this
cell that a hasty sketch was made of
him by an artist.
The whole procedure appears to have
occasioned an acrimonious division of
opinion in the neighboring country
The more Ignorant agricultural popula
tion resented the attempt of science to
associate animals with human beings
even in alleviation, and it Is certain
that the patients in the asylums pro
tested vigorously, if not always co
herently, for the dementia of the bear
m8de itself manifest in his Incarcera
tion by the most hideous roarings,
growlings, gnawing of his bars and
squealings indescribable, and the two
occupants of the adjoining cells must
have had vocal , proof enough of their
most dreadful insane imaginings.
All attempts to reduce him to sub
jection by morphine and other anaes
thetics having failed, the ingenuity of
the keepers was called into play by
an endeavor to put an extemporized
straight-jacket on him in the shape of
a leather harness; but this proved abor
tive, and it was ultimately found that
th? only approximate way of treating
bin at all was through his food.
It does not appear that any definite
conclusions have been arrived at with
respect to the susceptibility of bears to
mental disturbance or the efficacy of
subjecting them to human treatment.
Whaf were regarded as the maniacal
paroxysms came on at regular Inter
vals and subsided only with exhaus
tion. But they were characterized
rather by the symptoms of rabies than
of insanity and were accompanied by
frothings and epileptic disturbance of
the voluntary muscular system.
The performances of an irresponsible
animal whose strength when fully
exerted threatened to destroy the ln
closure in which he was confined ap
pears to have had enough interest to
draw a great number of visitors to the
place, but anything like a determina
tive prognosis of the animal's disease
ha3 not been forthcoming.
It is worth stating here that a curious
anf inexplicable superstition or notion
appears to have come down to us that
animal3 do become insane.
Youatt and several other dog experts
lean to the opinion that rabies induces
a species of insanity in animals. Most
of the herders in the West attribute a
stampede of cattle to a maniacal im
pulse, and It is a prevalent belief in
the Orient that r. donkey can see
spirits and is often driven to despera
tion by them. Some of the early Sara
i (,nic writers prescribed for insane cam
els and as late as the fifteenth cen
tury amulets were sold to drive evil
spirits out of white horses. There is
no doubt that our modern association
of the white horse to the red-headed
girl comes to us from Morocco, where
tin1; Gauls were the first veterinaries,
arc made a specialty of treating white
W tth regard to the bear, we have only
to look at Goldsmitn s "Animatea Na
ture" to find It seriously laid down
that the bear goes to sleep in the win
ter when he is fattest, and lives by
nu king his paws in a somnambulistic
From a scientific point of view it is

HOW YOU MAY OBTAIN A LAST
ING! CURE FROM FILES.
No Surgical Operation, No Fain, Trifling
ExpenseA Simple, Harmless Rem
edy but itDoea the Work.
There are some people who have piles
as frequently and regulurly as other peo
ple have colds.
Any little bowel trouble will bring
them on, any extra exertion, as in lifting,
will produce them, and in fact will often
appear without any provocation. Piles,
however, are much more serious than a
cold, as the tendency is always to grow
worse until the trouble becomes deep
seated and chronic, or developes into
some fatal rectal disease.
While there are many pile remedies
which give relief, yet there is but one
which not only gives instant relief bnt
at the same time makes a permanent
cure, and that is the well known Pyra
mid Pile Cure.
This remedy is composed of simple
harmless, vegetable ingredients, but com
bine so effectively and act so promptly
and thoroughly that it cures every form
of piles whether itching, blind, bleeding
lu long standing cases the Pyramid
Pile Cure has proven to be the only cer
tnin cure except a surgical operation,
and its advantages over an operation
are many, as it is painless, causes no de
lay or interference with daily occupation
and, lust but not least, is cheaper than
any surgical operation could posssibly
be, costing but a dollar a package at
any drug store.
The cases that the Pyramid Pile Cure
will not reach are so few that physicians
are doing away with operations for piles
and depending on this cheap but effect
ive remedy to accomplish a complete
cure, and it never disappoints except in
cases beyond the reach of medical skill.
The Pyramid Pile Cure is prepared by
the Pyramid Drug Co. of Albion, Mich.,
and for sale by druggists everywhere at
50 cents per package. Each package
contains a treatise on cause and cure of
piles, together with testimonials from
every section of this country.
HE COULD NOT LIE.
Be Was Mlxsd ITp About the Location
of tlie Indian Ocean,
There was an old man with a wooden
leer seated on a pile of chain cable be
fore a marine store in South street
relates a writer in the New York
world, and as I took a seat beside him
"There is probably a good story
connected with the loss of that leg. I
take it that you are an old sailor."
"Yes, sir, " he answered. "I used to
be a deep-water sailor, but since the
loss of that leg I have had to remain
ashore and act as Bhip-keeper."
"But about the leg. How did you
'Do you want a truthful story, sir,
or one of those fancy yarns they put
in the papers!"'
Just as you like. "
"Well. I couldn't toll you a li& 1
may have been a hard man in my day.
but lying was not one of my sins. It
must be the solemn truth or nothing.'
"Well, sir, I lost that leg in the In
dian ocean by a shark 'The ship I
was in was bo . -aimed, and I crawls out
on the bowsprit to catch a curious
bird which had settled down and gone
to sleep. I was nearly up to it when
I feels a sudden numbness in that leg.
I thought it murhtbo rheumatics, bnt
just then the second mate sings out:
"Lay in, lom, before he comes
after your other one! We want9 no
man aboard this ship without at least
one leg!' '
' -What's the bloomln' row, Mr.
Martin?' Iasks of him as I looks back.
-Why, a shark has bit that right
leg of yours off at the knee and he s
now got his weather eye on your left!
Lay in, I say!"
Well sir, I laid in to find that he
was telling the truth. The leg was
gone. A shark had leaped up and bit
ten it off."
How high did he have to leap?"
"Say fourteen feet sir."
And you didn't hear a splash?"
"Not a one."
Nor feel the bite?"
"No, sir. There was just a sort of
numbness, like I told you. If it hadn't
been for the bloomin' mate a-tollin' of
me and my ship-mates pointing at it I
shouldn't have known it was off."
Tom, what is the usual charge
down this way for telling the truth?"
'Well, sir. some beats you down to
the price of a glass of beer, while
others are quite willing to pay ten,
fifteen or twenty cen.s. It'saccording
to the man. I think fifteen cents is a
Yes, that's reasonable, vv ould it
have been any more if the shark had
leaped higher, say to the topsail yard?"
"Or if he had got both legs?" '
"Very well; here's your money. I
believe every word you have said, but
I'd like to ask you one question. "
"Go ahead, sir."
Where is the Indian ocean?"
"Why, out among the Indians, to
bo sure! Going? Well drop down
and see me now and then. I am full
of sea stories, and can warrant every
one of them to be copper-bottomed."
