A "run down" condition is
generally due to the failure of
the digestive organs to properly
digest the food. Dr. D. Jayne's
Vermifuge tones up the digestive
organs so that they supply the
body with proper nourishment,
and in this way bring about last
ing health. Ordinary tonics
simply supply food material in
predigested form, and conse
quently are only effective as
long as the tonic is taken. 1

New Geyser in Yellowstone Park.
For a few days past there have been
Indications of an eruption of some
kind near the Fountain hotel in Yel
lowstone park, says a dispatch from
Mammoth Hot Springs, Wyo. Now a
new and magnificent geyser has bro
ken out in full force about 100 feet
north of the regular Fountain geyser
near Fountain hotel. This new geyser,
which does not appear to affect any of
the others in that vicinity, played to a
height of 150 to 200 feet, throwing off
immense quantities of hot water, mud
and steam. The new geyser does not
play regularly as does Old Faithful,
but at short intervals, the eruptions
occurring five or six hours apart, and
lasting about one hour.

MISPLACED ACT OF KINDNESS
Motherly Woman Meant Well, but
Sequel Made Her Look Like
Paul's mamma at times fairly ex
odes maternity. Her heart goes out
to every child she meets. At least
it did until recently, when she had a
setback that has since held her feel
ings visibly in check. Now if you
qunstioned her in that respect she
would admit sadly that kindness to
strange children does not always pay.
The change of heart arrived because
of an incident on a certain day when,
ferociously riding her hobby of moth
erly kindness to all childhood, she
made a hurried dart across Broadway
to board a certain car.
As she reached the step, breathless
but safe, the vision before her was
that of a large, comely, well-dressed
woman comfortably climbing to the
platform and into the car, utterly un
mindful of the , small, overdressed
child in her wake, endeavoring to
emulate her every action.
With wrath in her heart and tender,
ness in her grasp Paul's mamma lift
ed the child in her arms, and so en
tered the car, setting the small girl in
the aisle as she took her seat. As
she did so the child for the first time
turned, and. looking her full in the
face broke out into a loud wail, which

her out to the weeping youngster.
"There she is, dear. There's moth

"I'm not her mother," was the
startling rejoinder. "I never saw the
child before. When she ran across
the street in front of you I took it for
granted she was yours. She certainly
isn't my child." New York Tinies.

Whim of a Property Owner.
A. J. Singelyn of the Burns hotel
says somebody played a mean trick on
one of his German customers recently.
"The German had one of those old
fashioned fly traps in his place," said
Mr. Singelyn. "It is about a foot high
and half the diameter at the bottom.
The flies get in somehow and then
they can't find their way out. A fel
low went into the saloon on one of the
hot days and the fly trap was full.
'I'll give you half a dollar for them
flies,' said he, and the German's face
lit up as he accepted it and shoved
over the trap. The man looked at it
a while, then loosened the bottom and
let the flies out.
"'Vat's der matter mit you?' asked
the excited German.
" 'Nothing,' replied the man as he
neared the door. 'They were my flies
and I could do what I wanted with
them.' " Detroit Free Press.

No amount of force or persuasion on the part of the imitators is great enough to evea
budge it from its preseut firm hold on the minds of the people. This has been emphatically
demonstrated several times during the past few years. Imitations have come and gone,
but Kellogg's goes on with an ever increasing demand. . This proves that the people won't

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach the dis

cure deafness, and that Is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness la caused by an inflamed condition ot the
mucous lining ot the Eustachian Tube. When this
tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or im
perfect hearing, and when It is entirely closed. Deaf
ness is the result, and unless the Inflammation can he

out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which Is nothing
