A Paralytic Cured.
Ills Omntlfntlirr, a IW'Votutlonory Eol
tiler, nnd lll mtlicr, llolh Died ol
I'nnilyaU, Yot tho Third tJcner
ntlon Ii Cnred -The Method.
(From the Hernia. Boston. Mass.)
Like a thunderbolt frem a clear sky
n. stroke of paralysis came to Mr. Frank
T, Ware, the well known Doston auc
tioneer and appraiser, at 235 Washing
ton street. He went to bed one night
about six years ago seemingly In robust
health. When he awoke his left side
was stiffened by the deadening of the
nerves. The Interviewer sought out Mr.
Ware to get the facts. He gave the In
teresting particulars In his own way:
"The first shock came very suddenly
while I was asleep, hut It was not last
ing In Us eflects, and In a few weeks I
was able to bo about. A few months
after, when exhausted by work and
drenched with rnln I went home In a
very nervous Btate. The result was a
second and more severe shock, after
which my left arm and leg were prac
tically helpless.
"My grandfather, who was a soldier
In the Hevolutlonary War, nnd lost an
nrm In the struggle for American Inde
pendence, died finally of paralysis. My
father also died of paralysis, although
It was complicated with other troubles,
and so I had some knowledge of the fa
tal character of the disease which Is he
reditary In our family. After the sec
ond shock I took warning, for. In all
probability, a third would carry me off.
"Almost everything under the sun was
recommended to me and I tried all the
remedies that -icemcd likely to do any
good, electricity, massage and special
ists, but to no effect.
"The only thing I found that helped
me was Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I
verily believe that If It hadn't been for
those pills I would have been dead
years ago.
"Yes, I still have a slight reminder of
the last attack six years ago. My left
nrm Is not as strong as the other and my
left foot drags a little, as the paralysis
had the effect of deadening the nerves.
But I can still walk a good distance,
talk as easily as ever, and my general
health Ib splendid. I am really over sev
enty years old, although I am generally
taken to be twenty years younger.
"The Pink Pills keep my blood In good
condition, and I believe that Is why I
nm so well.
Mr. Ware has every appearnnce of a
perfectly healthy man, nnd arrives at
his ofllce promptly at eight o'clock ev
ery morning, nlthough he has reached
nn ago when many men retire from
active life. He says that In his
opinion both his father and grandfather
could have been saved If Pink Pills had
been obtainable at that time.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple contain all the elements necessary to
give new life and richness to the blood
and restore shattered nerves. They may
be had of all druggists or direct by mall
from the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,
Schenectady, N. T., at BO-cents per box.

Wanted a New Trial.
A humerous sceno was enacted in the
superior courtroom at Jackson, Ga., re
cently (according1 to the Atlanta Con
stitution). A negro had been charged
with burglarizing n store. Colonel
Watkins defended him, and was about
to open tho case with a well prepared
oration of his innocence, when the ne
gro quietly informed tho colonel that
he desired to plead guilty. Judge Heck
accordingly rcad tho law in the case
and sentenced tho negro for ten years.
Dumbfounded at this long sentence,
tho negro rolled his eyes round and
beckoned Colonel "Watkins to coma for
ward, and' when the lawyer reached his
side, tho negro gently whispered: "Say,

I nm tired of our
flat that I want to
live In tho suburbs,
but tho doctor says
we both need
change," concludod
Mrs. Perry THorne,
who was making
ker first plea for
country life.
"I agree with the
doctor that wo need change of ono sort,
at least," nnswered her husband.
"Don't be flippant, dear. I am In
dead earnest; and oh, Perry, I know of
such a dear cottage, one of a row."
"I dislike rows," said Perry. "How
ever, If you are determined to bo a
suburbanite, nnd with tho suburbanite
stand, I mny as well agree to go. I
will at once take lessons on tho flying
trapeze, so that I may sometimes be
able to catch a train. Have you caught
your house yet, Maud?"
"Oh, yes. Mrs. Smead has one In tho
same row, and she told mo about ours.
It Is the southwest corner house, while
hers is the southeast. Isn't It strango,
Perry, that I hnve never been Intro
duced to Mr. Smead? I wouldn't be
lieve there was any such person If I
had not seen him,"
"Nothing strango about It," growled
Perry, In what his wifo called his "bull
dog" voice. "I supposo you want to
know him becauso ho has the reputa
tion of being a lady-killer."
"I am told by follows we both know
that ho prides himself on his beauty."
"I hato beauty-men," said Maud
soothingly, "they nro all vain, con
ceited creatures. I would never marry
a handsome man."
Perry mumbled something nnd went
away, first giving his wife permission
to do ns sho pleased about taking tho
suburban house.
A week later both families were set
tled In the row which fronted a street
and a railroad track, and was equi
distant from two depots.
Mr. Smead did not take as kindly to
the ohange as Pcry Thornc did, but he
told his wife, thoughtlessly, that one
good feature of suburban life was hav
ing the Thornes for neighbors.
"Where have you over met Mrs.
Thome?" asked his wife suspiciously.
"Don't know her from Adam, my
dear; but Isn't she your friend, and
haven't I heard her praises sung ever
since we were married?"
"H'm! We have calling acquaint
ance, and now that we are to be neigh
bors I supposo you will meet. But you
nre so susceptible and sho is so giddy
I Just know you will set people talk
ing." "Great Caesar, Laura, you give your
best friend a great send-off! I suscep
tible and she giddy! We must be made
for each other!"
Mrs. Smead looked volumes at her
handsome husband.
A great throng of peole were hurry
ing homeward, and all bore the happy
burdens of Saturday night new shoes
for tho feet of tho little burden-bearers,
a now bonnet for mother, the Sunday
dinner and among them Perry Thorne
and Amos Smead, who had struck up
a neighborly acquaintance and were
now hastening to the game train, go
ing out to their suburban homes for
their first Sabbath. They were both
laden to the ears with brown paper
packages and Just time to make tho
train after purchasing their com
mutation tickets. They wont lopping
through the gates in approved subur
ban etylo nnd caught on Just as the
train moved out, and then Perry
shouted In a" volco that s-.unded above
the roar of tho escaping steam:
"We've left our Sunday dinners on
tho window stand of tho ticket ofllce.
You go on, Smead and I'll take tho
next train out."
He swung himself clear off tho train,
turned a somersault and waved "all
right" to Smead, who mopped the
cinders and perspiration from his face
and remarked to the man standlug next
to him, In a friendly way: "Nice way
to spend the summer living in the
"Yes, if you don't care what you say,"
growled the man.
Then Smead took a bit of pasteboard
from his pocket and began to study It.
"Southeast corner Terrace row, Oak
land." Smead asked his gruff neighbor If
he got off at the station.
"No, I don't." said the man. "You
couldn't hire me to live in that swamp.
I go out ten miles further where you
don't have to sift the atmosphere to
keep tho mosquitoes from choking
That sounded discouraging, but
Smead was not anxious to ride ten
miles further on an accommodation
train, that slowed up for every cow on
tho track, and he wrapped himself In
i speculative reverie until the brake-

Mr. Smond n frantic woman, nor neigh
bor, Mrs. Thornc, rushed into her cot
"I've caught him!" she gafped. "He's
locked up In tho library! Oh! oh! oh!"
"Caught whom?" nsked tho mystified
woman. Then, seeing that her de
tracted visitor was very near fainting,
Bho collected restoratives nnd brought
back Mrs. Thome's scattered wits.
Maud oxplntncd as Boon as sho could
spoak that a desporatc-looklng man, n
burglar, sho was certain, nnd n convict
ns well, by tho cut of his hair had
fclonoiusly entered her house n moment
boforo sho entne, nnd, walking boldly
Into her library, had bcon locked safely
therein by hor6clf.
"Tho windows nro nailed down; 1
havo boon waiting for Perry to open
them, so ho cannot escnpo that way,"
sho concluded.
"I expected Amos on tho last train;
I don't seo what Is keeping him," snld
Mrs. Smead, "but he han not como yot."
"Neither has Perry, but perhaps they
will como together. Isn't It dreadful?
I daren't go back with that man In the
house. I know by his looks ho's a
murderer. Our girl hnsn't como nnd
I'm nil alone. Oh, if Mr. Smend were
only here!"
"I guess I'll do Just as well," snld
Mrs. Smead boldly. "I will take our
revolver nnd you enn bring tho stove
lifter, nnd wo1 will Interview him
through tho door."
"But what good will that do? Ho may
8-h-o-o-t first!"
"Como on," snld Mrs. Smead, con
temptuously. Sho was only a young
matron herself, but Bhe was not going
to bo ignomlnlously routed by a one
man army, nnd sho led the wny to her
nelgbor's cottage. No other people
lived in tho row, so they had all tho
fun to themselves.
But at thnt Identical moment the 7:40
train, sometimes called " "husband's
train," so many of them went out to
spend tho week's interval with their
families, stopped at tho nearest depot
and Perry Thorne, with his double load
of packages, hovo In sight. Both wom
en wero overjoyed to eco him.
"What's tho row?" he asked, drop
ping his bundles on the veranda.
"A man!" said ,both women at once.
"Where Is Smend?"
"That Isjiwhat I would like to know,"
said Mrs. Smead. "I expect him on thla

"A burglar, and he's locked up In
tho library. Don't you think I wns
brnve?" asked Maud, who, now that her
husband hnd come, felt that she might
pose as a heroine.
"Burglars already? Ha! this Is n di
version. Give mo tho key, Maud. I'll
take your revolver, Mrs. Smead. Now,
Indleti, stand aside," and Perry made n
vnllnnt rush for tho library door, which
ho unlocked nnd threw open, at the
same tlmo presenting arms, according
to tho best manual practice.
"Don't shoot!" cried n familiar voice
that trembled, not with fear, but merri
ment, ns Mr. Smend stepped fimlltngly
forward and bowed low to Mnud. "I
am Mrs. Thome's captive," ho said,
"What does this mean?" cried Porry,
his facn (laming.
"Yes, what does It mean?" demanded
Mrs. Smead In the measured syllables
of tho dlvorco court.
"It means," explained Mr. Smead,
"that my wife hns not yet learned to
box tho compass. Sho gave mo 'south
west' and your wife locked me up In a
room that has no ventilation and is un
der ajcrimlnal ban. But I forglvo her,"
he added, with gallant protest, whereat
Maud's cheeks grow red with embar
rassment, and Mrs. Smead said: "Como
home! After this 1 wll meet you at the
train and sec that you don't get Into
tho wrong house."
"Do forgive me, Mr. Smend," said
Maud penitently, while Perry glared
darkly like a Jealous stage lover, "but
you did look so eo "
"Sho said you looked like a convict,"
remarked his wife.
"At least It has made us acquainted,"
observed Mr. Smend, true to his colors,
and with this parting shot ho followed
his wife to the "southeast" cottage.

Tho last census made no account of
