"The Talleyrand Memoirs" in Tht
The Century magazine is running a f ast presi
day and night in order to print the first in
stallment of the delayed"Talleyrand Memoirs'
in the January number. This same magazim
was the first to print , before its appearanci
in France , the life and literary remains of thi
great French artist , Jean Francois Millet , anc
now the Century is to bring to light , before
they appear in any other country , the long
hidden memoirs of the most famous of French
diplomatists. The first article will be preced
ed by what is said to bo a brilliant pen-por
trait of Talleyrand by MinlsterWhitelaw Reid ,
who has made the selections from the most
interesting chapters of the first volume. The
first installment of selections from "The
Memoirs of Talleyrand , " which is to appear in
the January Century , will contain a sketch of
the author's strange and lonely childhood , an
account of his entry Into Parisian society , his
estimate of LaFayette , some account of the
beginnings of the French Revolution , a strik
ing passage concerning the Duke of Orleans :
nn account of Talleyrand's residence in Eng
land and America , and of a most Interesting
conversation between Talleyrand and Hamil

The transition from long , lingering and pain
ful sickness to robust health marks an epoch
in the life of the individual. Such a remarka
ble event is treasured in the memory and the
agency whereby the good health has been at
tained is greatfully blessed. Hence it is that
so much is heard in praise of Electric Bitters.
So many feel they owe their restoration to
health to the use of the great alterative and
tonic. If you are troubled with any disease
of kidneys , liver or stomach of long or short
standing you will surely find relief by use of
Electric Bitters. Sold at 50 cents and $1 per
bottle at A. McMillan's drug store.
There is a dispute as to exactly when the
twentieth century will begin. A Pittsburg
astronomer says it will begin on January 1 ,
1890. The first ce iury does not end with the
year 99. but with the year 100 ; the second cen
tury , therefore , began with the year 101 , and
the twentieth century , as explained , will be
gin with the year 1901.
Piln aai dread attend the use of most catarrh
remedies. Liquids and snuffs are unpleasant
as well as dangerous. Ely's Cream Balm is
safe , pleasant , easily applied into the nostrils ,
and a sure cure. It cleanses the nasal pas-
gages and heals the inflamed membrane , giv
ing relief at once. Price 50 cents.
Levin , who is supposed to bo Tolstoi and a
character in "Anna Karenina , " says in that
novel : "Justices of the peace are no good.
In eight years I have never known one to
make a right decision. "
A chemist says there is just one-fifth as
much nutriment in quail on a toast as in the
same quantity of weak mutton broth ; and
there is even more difference in the price of
the two articles.
