"Judge S had been sick only about two
weeks , aud it was not until the last three or
four days that the malady took a serious turn.
At the beginning of his illness he suffered from

kidneys refused to perform their functions and
he passed quietly away. Thus ended the life
of one of the most prominent men in Cali
fornia. " Like thousands of others his un
timely death was the result of neglecting early

Cholera infantum has lost its terrors since
the introduction of Chamberlain's Cholic
Cholera and Diarrhrea Remedy. When that
remedy is used and the treatment as directed
with each bottle is followed , a cure isceitain.
Mrs. Fanny Lauderdale , of Rock , Pope coun
ty , Illinois , says it cured her baby of cholera
infantum and she thinks saved its life. A.
W. Walter , of Waltersburg , Illinois , says it
cured his baby boy of cholera intantum after
several other remedies had failed. The child
was so low that "he seemed almost beyond
the aid of human hands or reach of any medi
cine , " but Chamberlain's Colic , Cholera and

in New York and wants tojet to Chi

gets on to a freight train , near the en

what docs he do ? Why , he simply
waits for another train and tries it

THE CITY OF BABYLON.
A Marvelous Town That Has Ztln la
Hums Many Centuries.
According to Herodotus the ancient
city of Uabylon stood on a broad , level
plain , and was an exact square of four
teen miles each way , making the en
tire circuit of the city fifty-six miles.
It was protected by both a wall and a
moat , the latter being broad and deep
and kept constantly filled with water.
But the wall was the wonder of won
ders , being 93 % feet in width and an
even 200 feet in height. This monster
barrier of solid brass , the lintels and
side pieces being in bronze. Cross
walls ran along the banks of the
Euphrates , each provided with twenty-
five gates , which corresponded to the
number of .streets running in each di
rection from the river. The most re
markable edifice inside the wall was
the Temple of Bel , a pyramid of eight
square stadia. On the summit of thi s
pyramid stood a pure gold image of
Bel 40 feet high , two other smaller
figures of the same precious metal and
a golden table 40 feet long and 15 feet
wide. This wonderful city first came
prominently into the history of the
world in the year 747 B. C. , but since
Alexander the Great it has been a
ruin , the site having at one time been
THE "DOG-FACED WOMAN. "
She Lived Off X.iture In Lancaster County
and .Umpired in a. Tent.
Mary Alloway , an aged and eccen
tric character of Mount Joy township ,
Pennsylvania , familiarly known in the
neighborhood by the title of "Mary ,
the " died in
dog-faced woman , lately
her hovel in Eshleman's woods.
She erected a tent in the woods and
there lived in poverty all the year
around , having only a tattered blan
ket for a bed covering even in the
severest winter weather. In the sum
mer she subsisted off wild fruits , ber
ries , nuts and roots , and for the re
mainder of the year she contrived to
keep soul and body together by beg
ging from neighboring farmers.
She roamed at will all over the re
gion , accompanied by a pack of dogs
as lean and gaunt as herself. Several
months ago the people of the neigh
borhood , who had come to regard her
as a nuisance , burned her tent and had
her removed to the county almshouse ,
but she soon escaped to the woods ,
erected another hovel , and there died.
More Than a Match.
In the straits settlements the
Chinese appear to be occasionally
more than a match for the Western
barbarian. It is the practice of the
merchants selling goods to receive pay
ment in rolls of copper coin done up in
paper , each roll containing 50 cents ,
and it has occurred to some of their
customers to substitute for the rolls
packages containing a piece of bar
iron the exact size and weight of a
roll of 48 cents. An ordinary cent is
put on each end of the bar , in case of
the end of the roll should be opened.
One merchant , it is stated , received
$40 in alleged rolls of copper , and
found , on opening them , that each roll
contained two cents and an iron bar.
The unlucky dupe , it is added , failed
to obtain Conviction from lack of suf
ficient evidence. >
A Girl From the Cooking : School.
An editor who married a girl from a
cooking club prints the following in
his paper after a few years of married
life : "Go stand where I have stood ,
go feel what I have felt , eat clammy
half cooked feed , and lish and eggs
that smelt. Go take what I have took ,
go bear what I have bore , throw tea
cups at the cook , and swear as I have
swore. Go live on juiceless steak , and
soggy bread half baked ; at midnight
lie awake , and ache as I have ached.
Go gnaw with all your might on tough
pieces of doughnuts and pies , and stop
between each breath to pick out hairs
and flies. Go do what I have done
make yourself a fool ; by winning as I
have won , a girl from a cooking

the heifer's onward progress than Ft.
Carroll would be to a man-of-war.
In a moment Mrs. 1'oole was knocked
to the ground , and in the kitchen it
went. There some destruction of prop

to satisfy the heifer. The dining room
was next entered where the well-

was then taken in , and a lamp was
knocked down , The heifer wanted to
conquer higher worlds , so she went
upward into a bedroom. Here , tern-

NEW CURES FOR DEAFNESS.
Results of ScIencc'H AVork in Aid of the
The vibrometer is a newly invented
instrument for the cure of deafness.
The principle of its operation is the
massage of the sound-conducting ap
paratus of the ear by means of vibra
tory forces. By this method , various
conditions can be relieved which would
not be reached by the regular modes
of treatment , and which are the prin
cipal causes of deafness in a very large
proportion of those alllicted. The
phonograph as been used for this pur
pose , and although its adaptation was
effected in a very comparatively crude
manner , the results attained justified
the belief that an instrument embody
ing special improvements on the same
lines would be of the utmost value.
Such an instrument is the vibrometer ,
and so sitccessf ul has been its applica
tion that man } ' persons whose deaf
ness was from five to fifteen years'
standing can now , through its use ,
hear ordinary conversation from ten
to twenty feet away with their backs
turned to the speaker , and others with
never-ceasing noises in their cars have
been completely relieved.
THE GENTLE CURE.
The Pretty Fable AVith AVhich He Incul
cated a Moral Lesson.
An Italian curewas , about making a
journey. Many friends called to say
good-bye , and , as had happened be
fore , each gave him a paper on which
was jotted down a list of things which
the writer wished the traveler to pur
chase for him. Only one of these
friends accompanied his memorandum
with the necessary money. This one
friend's commission the cure carefully
executed , and delivered the articles to
him. When the others called for their
goods , he said : "Soon after I sailed , I
took out all your papers to look them
over and classify them. I laid them
on the deck before me. Suddenly
there came a gust of wind and they
were all blown away. I could not re
member what they contained , and so f
could not do your errands. " "But , "
they objected , "you brought what So-
and-So asked you to get. " "Oh , yes , "
said the cure ; "you see.he enclosed the
cash with his memorandum , and that
kept it from blowing away. "
Little John Gray returned to Tren
ton , Tenn. , lately from a two years'
stay in Texas. Taken in itself there
is nothing very peculiar about the
young man's return to the state of his
nativity , but a few days after he left
for Texas two years ago a dog which
had become very much attached to
him mysteriously disappeared , and was
and has been mourned as dead fcince
that time , and has never been seen by
mortal eye so far as is in the knowl
edge of Trentonians. But on the day
set for the arrival of John and the day
on which he was expected , the dog
made his appearance at the Jetton
household and seemed as if anxiously
expecting some one. John did not
come home until the following even-
ning , but the dog was on hand to meet
him and was overjoyed to see his
young master. .
