by tbe natives before its extraordinary
properties became known to civilization
through Christian miss'ioraries. In

made known by tbe Indians to ti e early
Jesuit r-is .i ii aries in outh America,

It is a wonderful .itscovery, viih a rec

acts directly upon tbe blood and kid

nineisin malaria. We have tbe sttorg
est testimony of many ministers ot the
gospel, well known doctors and btir.im t
men cured by Alkavis, when all other
remedies had failed.

aitnaelf aa being in ronatant misery, often corns

account of weakness of the bladder, fie las
treated by all hia home physicians without! he

Young, of Kent, Ohio, writes that she had tried
six doctors In vain, that shews about to give
up in despair, when she found AUavfs and was
promptly cured of kidney disease and restored

wonderful curative powers of Alkavis in the
various disorders peculiar to womanhood.

CLOTH FROM CAT-TAIL.
A New Use for the) H amble bat Pretty
Very few, probably, are aware that
the fur, or vegetable down, of the cat
tail l a marketable article, superior to
feathers or cotton for many purposes.
It Is not quite so valuable i,r useful as
eiderdown, hut it approaches It very
t loeu'ly, and Is cheaper thau any of the
three. As a matter of fact, a great
l 'any people are to-day usiu' articles
covered with cat-tali product? who
have uo idea where the mater jil comes
It Is a vast exteut of country, com
paratively speaking, from which the
eat-tall i gathered. It comes from the
swamps along tbe numerous creeks
that put In from the Delaware Hay.
from Morris Itiver to Cape May. The
average amount gathered in the sea sou
1st a ton a day. The work of gathering
and transporting if. and then weaving
It into tbe many forms which it must
lake before becoming-salable, consti
tutes a considerable Industry.
One of the most elaborate uses to1
which this material Js put Is that of
covering sof.'ia. Very many of the sup
posed plush-covered divans are really
covered with a fabric of cat-tail. It
wejrs better than the plush, and is In
The same argument that applies to
the Hjfa is applicable to the pillow.
Very often, however, such pillows go
by another name.
Sofa pillows, also, are made of cat
tail, because a pillow avowedly cov
ered with cat-tail would probably be
regarded with contempt. Call It Alas
kan plush, however, or Shetland wool
that bn leen treated by a new process,
and It will sell readily enough, and give
good satisfaction, too.
The family album which graces the
center table In tbe parlor of so many
farm hoiaxca Is also In many Instances
adorned with cat-tail covers, although

It Is Incoming a prevalent custom to
v it-tall fur on tbe back of hand
hiu tors and brushes, which have here
tofore been backed with phwli. Some
say that the substitute is really proving
better than tbe original. The bead
rest, too, seen on the i asy chair, Is often
of cat-talland It Is none the lews com
fortable for tht.
Another article for which the cat-tail
Is used Is the bed iiuilt. The eiderdown
quilt Is au old-time article of luxury.
The cat-tall quilt is every whit as com
fortable, and coslM about otie-quai'lcr as
much. In New Jersey, at least, the
housewife fully appreciates the value
of the cat-tall quill, however much her
less well-informed sisters may scoff at
the idea. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
