HUNTING THE CARIBOU.
A Sport That Calls for Discretion, Coolness
and Considerable Skin.
At this season of the year he ap
proaches every little patch of water
against the wind, and with the feel
ings of a ticket-holder at a lottery
drawing. Should he be in luck, he by
no means opens fire at once. The herd
derives its impulse from its leader, as
the steam-engine does from the en
gineer. Withdraw either from his
control, and though the power is still
there, that which gave it direction is
yone. So. hardly breathing under the
intense excitement of the moment, he
studies the movements of the herd
with the keene-t attentwn. Having
selects! his victim, a well-directed
bullet knocks it sprawling on the ice.
In an instant all is confusion. The
herd circle around their fallen leader,
totally at a lo-s what to do, until some
other assumes the place of the fallen,
and ail break for the shelter of the
woods. If the hunter is then a quick
and sure shot, the interval is not im
improved. But if the pond is small and closely
surrounded with forest and hill, the
first shot echoes from the opposite side
with a distinctness which should be
heard to be fully appreciated, and re
echoes again and again. The startled
herd seem confronted in every direc
tion by explosions, and every avenue
of escape appears closed. Utterly de
moralized they circle about, swinging
their heads from side to side, sniffing
the air in the vain endeavor to locate
the danger and divine the path to safe
ty. If the rifle be then in the hands
of a butcher and not a sportsman, all
may fall before driven to desperation
to take amy chance for the sake of cov
er, one bursts for the woods. The
rest, if any. instantly follow this ini
tiative, and many and many a mile will
intervene before the pace slackens to a
walk. Henri P. Wells, in Harptr's
A Soetcty 3Ian Expo a Weak Point in the
Armor of Fashion.
Consistency may be a jewel, but
the wearers of jewels are by no means
always consistent. What do I mean ?
Why, did you never notice the absurd
contrast between the jewelry of some
women and the rest of their attire?
"There are many women who con
sider themselvels models of fashion,
but who in the eyes of a man of taste
commit the greatest offenses in this
respect. How often we see a woman
who takes the greatest pains in the
world to have her gowns, ber head
gear, her coiffure, even her under
wear in the very latest style, and who
yet appears in public wearing old
"Fashions in jewelry change as much
as those in wearing apparel, and a
woman who Vvants really to be in the
fashion should consult her jeweler
almost as often as she does her dress
maker or her milliner. The real
leaders of fashion never make the
blunder I have referred to. You will
notice that they are constantly appear
ing with new articles of jewelry or
with old jewels reset in the latest
style. These women make a study of
the art of looking well, and are well
aware of the grotesque appearance
presented by one who wears with one
of Worth's newest gowns her grand
mother's jewelry." fewekrs'' Weekly.

How to Help Your Digestion.
Almost every day we feel the unpleasant
sensations of indigestion. Try Allcock's.
Pokocs Plasters and be relieved. J. P.
Davenport, of Canarsie, New York, writes:
I have been very much troubled with a
violent pain below my chest bone. I was
told by several physicians that it was
rheumatism of the diaphragm. It resulted
from cold and exiwsure. I had very little
appetite and digested my food with great
difficulty. I placed one Allcock's Ponocs
Plasteu below the breast bone and two on
each side. In the course of twenty-four
hours all pain ceased, and I was able to
eat and digest a good square meal, some
thing I had not done before in two weeks.
I got better constantly, and at the end of
seven davs found myself entirely welL
Since then I have used Aixcock's Porous
Pustees for colds, couchs and pains in
my side, and I have always found them
quick and effective.

But do not use the dangerous Alkali zai
Mercurial preparations which destroy jour
nervous system and ruin the digestive pow
er of the stomach. The Vegetable King
dom gives us the best and safest remedial
agencies. Dr. Sherman devoted the grea'er
part of his life to the discovery of this relia
ble and safe remedy, and all its ingredients
are vegetable. He gave it the name of
Prickly Ash Bitters!
a name every one'ean remember, and to the
present day nc thing has been discovered that
is so beneficial for the Blood, for the Liver,
ftr the Kidneys and fer the Stomach. This
reatdy is now so well and favcrably known
by all who have used it that argument as
ta its merits is useless, and if others who
require a corrective to the system would
but give it a trial the health f this coun
try would be vastly improved. Remember
the name PRICKLY ASH BITTERS. Ask
your druggist for it
