Do not think for a single moment that consumption will ever strike you a sudden blow. It does not come that way. It creeps its way along. First , you think it is a little cold ; nothing but a little hack ing cough ; then a little loss in we\tbt : then a harder cough ; then the fever and the night sweats. The suddenness comes when you have a hemorrhage. Better stop the disease while it is yet creeplpg. You can do it with Aycrs Cherry You first notice that you cough less.

A SCHOOL ON WHEELS. lutr the WestlnRlioiMi ) Alr-tlrnko Bjttin II TiiUKllU A few weelts ngo there rolled intt > the yard of the NCT ; York , New Ha ven and Hartford railroad , at Pnrk square , a most unusual kind of Bchool- houso. It was backed upon a siding , nnd remained there until It left the city. This BChoolhouse , with Its corps of competent Instructors , Is the only one of Its kind in this country , or In the whole world , for that matter , and s owned and operated by the Wcst- nghouso Air Brake company. It Is made up of three cars and has traveled more than fifty-five thousand miles. In t more than one hundred thousand railroad men have been Instructed within the eight years of its exist ence. It Is n perfectly constructed school house , fitted with every appli ance for instructing the pupils In the iso of the Westlnghouso Air Brake system , and has Its principal and Its competent teachers. "When the West lnghouso air brake was Invented and applied to steam railroads , It wna found to bo the best thing of Its kind ever invented , provided It was proper ly handled. It Is automatic In its ac tion , but the best results could not be obtained without a competent man at the throttle , who understood per fectly Just what results might bo ob tained with a certain amount of pres sure. It was this fact that led to the establishment of the schoolhousoT which Just now has its headquarters In Boston. It was the idea of getting the best results out of the brake , and therefore insuring greater safety to the passengers and a saving of prop erty to the railroads and shippers , that was the inspiration of this remarkable school. It was in 1889 that the three cars that compose the schoolhouse were built in Altoona , Pa. , by the Westlnghouso Air Brake company. The instruction car is equipped with the full number of air brakes , number of feet of piping , coupling , auxiliary res ervoirs , etc. , to equip a freight train of thirty cars , and'nlso'to equip a pas senger train of fifteen oars fitted with the whistle signaling device. The in struction car weighs 135,000 pounds , nnd is one of the heaviest cars that ever traveled the rails of a railroad. Moro than 112,000 railroad men Eave received instruction nnd have been examined as to their competency. The schoolhouse of three cars has been on every railroad west of the Mississippi river , Including Manitoba , Canada , and Mexico. It has also been over thou sands of miles of railroad on the mlfl die Atlantic , central and southern States. Boston Transcript. STAMPS AND COINS. Assistant Postmastcr-Qeneral Mer- rltt has decided upon the designs for a series of new postage stamps for the island of Cuba , and they will bo sup plied as promptly as possible by the bureau of engraving and printing. An other series of stamps will bo made for Porto Rico , and n third set for the Philippine Islands. They will be fur nished by the United States , but the proceeds of their sale will bo turned into the local treasuries until congress shall order otherwise. All three of the new colonies are to be treated by the postolflce department as foreign countries until some permanent form of government has been adopted for thorn , and the old rates of postage will I'd maintained. It will require a five- cent stamp to carry a letter to Cuba and Porto Rico as before. General Adjutant von Petroff , now postmaster general of Russia , Intro duced novel letter boxes throughout the Russian cities , and ordered the more frequent collection of letters from the boxes. The new boxes stand on corners of streets , so that the public can reach them from sidewalks ; the letter carrier who collects the mall opens them from the street side with out oven dismounting from hlawheel. . All the collecting carriers have been provided with tricycles having a large receptacle for the mail matter In front of them. The stamps of the Cuban republic , printed a year or so ago , as a means of raising funds for the Insurgents have been sold in large quantities though they have never been recog nized as postage stamps , if a letter franked with one of these labels was sent to the United States It was treat ed by the postal authorities as wholly unpaid , and the postage collected upon delivery. Having no recocnlzed gov ernment the Cubans could not issue postage stamps and expect them to be honored in other countries. The duke of York , who is now about 35 years of age , and in direct line to the throne of England , is a most con spicuous figure in the stamp world. He Is a collector , and , of course , has a very fine collection , although it does not compare with any other noted al bums in Europe , but then ho is a royal highness , and that makes a heap of difference , in the stamp world as else where. Prejudices. The prejudices of men are rooted for the most part in their personal charac ter ; and on account of this close con nection with the roots of personal ex istence , they cannot bo removed. Neither evidence nor understanding , nor reason , has the least effect on them. Goethe. l'oetrr \Vhat makes poetry ? A heart brim ful of ono noble passion.
