i I h r i U 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. or six boxes for $2.50. 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, Mr. Wadklns, kain'tyer 'pealfer anew trial?" FLOTSAM. A Maine paper has suspended pub lication for two weeks to give its em ployes a vacation. Two men and three New Haven (Conn.) boya killed fifty-seven copper head snakes the other day. About half of tho towns in Rhode Island have asked to be included in the provisions of tho good roads law, passed last January, permitting the use of $30,000 for good roads. Staid old Lcwiston, Me., has been shocked and scandalized during the past week or so by a bloomer girl who smokes a cigar while riding her bicycle about tho streets of tho town. On tho average, and taking England and Wales, onp person in 73 is a Smith, one in 7C a Jones, one in 115 a Will iams, ono In 148 a Taylor, one in 1C2 a Davics and one In 174 a Brown. Fish are disappearing from Canadian aa well as American waterB in conse quence of the fact that fish weighing les3 than a quarter of a pound are seined out In fine nets and marketed. English is now Included in the list of subjects In the examination for ad mission to the great military schools in France. Hitherto German has been the only foreign language necessary. A Lowell business man told his chil dren he would give them $3 If they would put a lot of wood Into the cellar. They sublet tho Job to othor children for $1.50 nnd watched them work with great satisfaction. The peanut crop Is likely to be a little short this year. Tennessee will probably produce an average crop, but in both Virginia and North Carolina the acreage In peanuts is 10 to 15 per cent less than last year. Mission work iu New Mexico com menced In 1S60. There are now 25 schools, more than 40 ministers and na tive helpers, and over 800 communi cants. There are about 40 missionary teachers on this field. The city of Texarkana voted the sa loons out, and Immediately the Cotton Belt railway moved Its machine shops from Pino Bluff .n Texarkana. The company prefers to have Its shops where there la no whisky sold. bixievn of i.,u aaau t,roup of islands havo been evangelized entirely by native missionaries. The drink traffic is, as usual, tho greatest hind rance to their work. Tho Christian Advocate notes that the town of Duham, Me., with a popula tion of 1,253, has furnished 30 Methc. dlst ministers, and how many of other denominations It does not know, Finland has demonstrated that spirits ore not necessary In cold countries, having become practically a total ab stinence country. This change has been effected under local option and woman suffrage. SUBURBAN TIIIALS. T ISN'T BECAUSE 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." "Perry!" "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'VE CAUGHT HIM!" SHE GASPED. 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 suburbs." "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 you." 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- jyy , ., (Si- Mr - "W -V--v. ' II I I J&r-J$L J man cnlled "O-n-k-1-n-n-d!" as If only the deaf lived at that station. Mrs, Smead. was waiting for her husband, whom sho expected on tho C.30 train, but tho train had como and gono, and instead of tho hnndEomo, wcll-groomctl Mr. Smond n frantic woman, nor neigh bor, Mrs. Thornc, rushed into her cot tago. "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 train." "I V.ven't seen him. Who Is the man?" "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. FINANCIAL SCHOOL. Twenty per cent of the buslnoss men of this country havo a capital of less than $1,000. Of tho farmers of this country one fourth, or 25 per cent, have propirty vnlued at less than $1,000. When the last census was taken tho depositors In the savings banks num bered 4,533,217. In tho professional classes of this country, such as doctors, lawyers, lynchers, Journalists and clergymen, 40 per cent liavo loss than $1,000 capital. Tho difference In valuation of proper ty at the last census was very remark able. In some states the assessment was no more than 25 per cent of tho real value of tho property, while In other cases it is believed to have been as high as the selling price. Tho last census made no account of noted, bonds, or other promises to pay, whether public or private, and those were not included in tho ostimated wealth for the reason that, while they are owned by one individual or corpora tion, they arc owed by another. In 1850 the total wealth of thlB coun try was $7,136,000,000, about $308 per capita; in 18C0 it had risen to $1C,1G0, 000,000, or about $514 per head; In 1870 it was $30,009,000,000, or about $780 par head; in 18S0 It had risen to $13,C42, 000,000, or $870 per head; and In 18$0 to $02,000,000,000. or $1,000 nar heat).
