    Mrs. Mamie Herbert, 56 Elmwood Ave.,
Buffalo, N. Y., Treasurer Empire State
Fortnightly, Buffalo, N. Y., After Eight
Years’ Suffering Cured by Lydia E. Pink
ham’s Vegetable Compound.
“ Dear Mrs. Pinkham :—Inflammation and ulceration of the
Uterus laid me low and robbed life of its joys for me. For eight years
I was in frequent pain and misery, and then Lydia E. Pinkham'*
Vegetable Compound came to me, the greatest boon I have
known, for it brought new life and health to me. I used several
bottles of Compound and your Sanative Wash. My improvement
was slow, but from the first bottle I felt that I was better, and so I
kept up courage and continued the treatment. None of my friends
ever dreamed that I would be well again, but I have now enjoyed life
to its fullest extent for three years.” — Mrs. Mamie Herbert.

that science has been able to cure In all its
stages, and that is Catarrh. Hail's Catarrh
Cure Is the only positive cure now known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a constitu

ment. Hall's Catarrh Cure Is taken internally,
acting directly upon the blood and mucous sur
faces of the system, thereby destroying the
foundation of tnedisease, and giving the patient
strength by building up the constitution and
assisting nature in doiug Its work. The pro

He Helped Ericsson
How Representative Sperry of Connecticut Proved Himself a Patriot.
"There is the man who was bonds
man for the construction of the Moni
This remark is often made at the
rapitol as Representative Sperry of
Connecticut is pointed out. it was
forty years ago that Mr. Sperry signed
his name to the instrument that
pledged every dollar he had in the
world on the success of an experiment
—an absolute experiment—that the
United States Navy Department was
not willing to back, which a great
many people thought was a foolish
one, but the success of which marked
the turning point in the naval tights of
the war of the rebellion.
Mr. Sperry's story of the bonding of
the constructors of the Monitor, the
fiscal act which was antecedent to the
great military drama, is very interest
"I was a young fellow.” said Mr.
Sperry, “but was full of patriotism
and ardor for the success of the Union
cause, and 1 guess that was why the
projectors of the Monitor approached
me to back the scheme with a bond for
the successful building of the vessel.
“John A. Griswold of Troy, at that
time a member of Congress; Cornelius
S. Bushlell of New Haven and a West
ern man named Winslow were the
builders. The vessel was designed by
Ericsson, as is well known, but these
three men were to construct her. "The
Navy Department was skeptical of the
practicability of Ericsson's idea, and
declined to advance the money unless
bom^ could be provided to secure the
department against loss if the plans
should not work out successfully.
“There was great commotion about
the building of the Confederate ram
Merrimac. We knew that she was go
ing ahead at the Cosport navy yard
and would be the most formidable ves
sel afloat. She was iron-clad, and the
thought of that invincible ship being
turnc '1 loose among the wooden ves
sels of the coast was a terrible one.
“She could have levied tribute on
every city along the coast from the
Chesapeake to Maine, and would have
had everything her own way. Well,
when the Monitor was proposed, peo
ple said that was just the thing if it
would work out. But many people
were doubtful about the 'cheese box.'
as they jeeringly called Ericsson’s ves
“Mr. Bushnell thought she could be
built. So Mr. John Drew of New York
and myself west on his bond with the
Navy Department, and the work was
started at Greenpolnt, N. Y. Every
body knows how the Union vessel was
finished, went down the coast and was
in Hampton Roads when the Merri
mac came out.
“I will never forget the day of the
battle, it was an exciting time in
New’ Haven, for we had a kind of local
pride in the Monitor, on account of
Mr. Bushnell's connection. All day
long crowds clustered around the tele
graph office, receiving bulletins of the
“Mr. Bushnell and I were there, too,
you may depend upon it. At last,
along about 5 or fi o'clock in the even
ing came the news that the Merrimac
had been disabled by the Monitor and
had put back to port. Bushnell, who
was a strapping hig fellow, with a
hand in proportion to his size,
brought his hand down on my shoul
der with a whack that nearly knocked
mo clown.
“ Sperry,’ says he, ’your bond is
safe-.’ 1 tell you. there was great cele
brating in New Haven that time. A
peculiar thing is that the original
bond we signed has never been found.
No one knows what, became of it.”—

Adventures of a Diver Wlio Was at Work in the Magdalena River,
I'ew men lead more adventurous
lives in these latter days than divers;
and few divers have survived more
perils of the deep than one known to
his fellows by the name of “Tim
mans.” This is how he describes one
adventure with a shark—a more excit
ing than dangerous one, as it happily
"1 once had an experience with a
shark,” he said, “while we were trying
to save a 3,000-ton steamer of the
Hamburg-Ameriean Packet Company,
wrecked on a bar in the Magdalena
river, Columbia.
“I'd been working for days patching
her keel, hung on a swinging shelf
we’d lowered along her side, and every
time I went down I saw swarms of red
snappers and butterfish under my
shelf, darting after the refuse I'd
scrape off her plates; and there were
big jewfish, too, and I used to harpoon
’em for the men to cat. In fact, I
about kept our crew supplied with
fresh fish that way.
"Well, on one particular day I no
ticed a sudden shadow against the
light, and there was a shark sure
enough; not such an enormous one,
but twelve feet long anyhow—big
enough to make me uneasy. He swam
slowly around me, and then kept per
fectly still, looking straight at me with
his little wicked eyes. •
"I didn't know what minute he
might make a rush, so I caught up a
hammer I was working with—it was
my only weapon—and struck it against
the steamer's side as hard as I could.
You know a blow like that sounds
louder under water than it does in the
air. and it frightened the shark, so he
went off like a flash.
“I’ll tell you how hungry those
sharks were. They’d swallow big
chunks of pork, sir, nailed and wir^d
to barrel heads, as fast as we could
chuck ’em overboard; swallow nails,
wire, barrel heads and all; and then
we haul ’em in by ropes that did for
fish lines, only it took twenty or thirty
men to do the hauling. And there
were plenty of sharks round about,
only they never seemed to tackle a
men in the suit.”
The Woelffel expedition which re
cently traversed a region of dense for
ests back of the ivory coast of West
Africa found there a large number of
cannibals comprising several tribes.
When the white men in the Woelffel
party asked these cannibals why they
indulged in the practice of eating hu
man flesh they replied that men are in
the habit of washing their bodies three
times a day, and their flesh, therefore,
is cleaner and sweeter than that of
rattle, which are never washed.
When Mr. Stanley sent Captain Co
quil'bat to occupy the station he had
established among the fierce Bangalla
cannibals of the middle Congo he
found the natives ever ready to defend
the practice of eating human flesh.
"This is horrible,” said Coquilhat one
day to a chief whom he saw at his
meal. "On the contrary, it is delicious
with salt,” was the reply. Another
time the Belgian soldier expressed his
abhorrence to a chief who was about
to sit down to a cannibal banquet
The latter replied to his protests:
“When you kill a goat I do not in
terfere. This dead man is my proper
ty. I did not steal or capture him, but
I bought him with good cloth and I
will eat him if I please.”
One day Coquilhat pointed out the
difference between man and mere ani
mals. and tried to convince the natives
that to eat a man was to make a very
bad use of him. and to degrade their
species. A bright fellow in the crowd
called out in answer:
“All your talk only shows that hu
man flesh is the best sort of food, while
the flesh of mere animals is a vile sort
of nutriment.”

Scientists Revel Over Recent Discovery
Made In Siberia.
The scientific part of the world that
interests itself in bones and their nat
ural coverings will be highly pleased
to learn that the complete skeleton,
and a good deal besides, of a mam
moth has been found imbedded in ice
in the eastern part of Siberia. It was
the ice that preserved it all these
years, and while for commercial pur
poses it ruined the ice, it kept the
mammoth in really prime condition.
This particular monster is estimated
to have been in cold storage for some
thing like 2.000 years, and it speaks
well for the Siberian brand of ice that
in all that time it seems to have kept
up its admirable reputation for firm
ness and endurance.
It appears from investigation that
the mammoth, while browsing along
the ice fields, accidentally slipped, and
before he could recover nts balance
came in contact with terra Siberia
with such force as to break his mam- i
moth neck. He lay as he fell, which !
was after all a good thing, because no
horse ambulance ever made was big
enough for a mammoth, and there the
ice closed over him, and for 2,000
years, more or less,- he reposed in his
trapped tomb, until some wandering
scientist came along and stared at
him through the crystal walls. Then
they cracked him out from his frost
bitten nose to his frozen feet, and set
him up and danced the dance of tri
umph about nim.
Poor old mammoth! The world has
changed a good deal since fate dealt
him that fatal jolt in the neck.

Pe-ru-na Creating a National Sensation in the Cure
of Chronic Ailments of the Kidneys.
Major T. II. Mars, of the First Wiscon
sin Cavalry regiment, writes from 1425
Dunning street, Chicago, ill., the fol
lowing letter:
“For years I suffered with catarrh of
the kidneys contracted in the army.
Medicine did not help me any until a
comrade who had been helped by Pe
ru na advised me to try it. I bought
some at once, and soon ft. und blessed
relief. I kept taking it four months,
and am now well and strung and feel
better than I have done for the past
twenty years, thanks to Peruna.”—
T. H. Mars.
Mr. John Vance, of Hartforil City,
Inti., says: “My kidney trouble is much
better. I have iinijroved so jnech that
everybody wants to know what medi
cine I am using. I recommend Peruna
to everybody anti some have commenced
to use it. The folks all say that if Dr.
Hartman's medicine cures me it must
be great."—John Vance.
Air. J. Brake, of I’etrolea, Ontario,
Canada writes: “Four years ago I
had a severe attack of Bright's disease,
which brought me so low the doctor
said nothing more could he done for
me. I began to take Peruna and
