“My husband was afflicted with boils for eight
years. Las spring his neck was nearly covered
with little boils which grew in number and

thing the doctors did seemed to
Aggravate the Disease.
He at last bought a bottle of Hood's Sarsapa

was well and he has had but one pimple since.
“The remainder of the medicine I gave to my

A San Fracisco young man was
commissioned by his father to go and
look at a new stock of Bibles, which j
had been sent our. as samples by hd ■
eastern firm. The young man was told
to examine the assortment carefully,
with a view to purchasing a quantity
for the house. Now the young man in
question is an excellent fellow and
pretty well informed upon almost all
subjects except Bibles, sc he scrutaniz
ed the collection with genuine interest
“Are Bibles used now as much as
they used to be? he inquired, with a
thoughtful air, turning the leaves of
one with respectful curiosity.
The eastern firm’s representative, who
had been expatiating upon the superi
ority of his goods and had been bring
ing to bear all of his power to effect a
sale, hastened to assort that there never
was such a lively demand for them as
at the present.
“But,” interposed the young man in
a dreamily retrospective way, “I think
you are a little behind the times, [no
tice that yon have a number of old tes
taments. I thought that they were
quite out of date now, and that only
the New Testaments were used. And
what does this mean he continued,
quoting a passage from Genesis.

Tf the following letters had been written
fey. tout best known and most esteemed
naigbbors they could be no more worthy of
your confidence than they now are, coming,
as they do, from well known, intelligent, and
trustworthy citizens, who, in their several
neighborhoods, enjoy the fullest confidence
ana respect of all who know them. The
subject of the above portrait is a well
known and much respected lady, Mrs. John
G. Foster, residing at No. 88 Chapin Street,
Canandaigua, N. Y. She writes to Dr. R.
V. Pierce, Chief Consulting Physician to the
Invalids’ Hotel and Surgical Institute
at Buffalo, N. Y., as follows: “I was
troubled with eczema, or salt-rheum, seven
years. I doctored with a number of
our home physicians and received no
benefit whatever. I also took treatment
from physicians in Rochester, New York,
Philadelphia, Jersey City, Binghamton, and
'^ived no benefit from them. In fact
.ve paid out hundreds of dollars to the
jtors without benefit. Mv brother came
j visit us from the West and he t^ld me to
try Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery.
He had taken it and it had cured him. I
have ta’-en ten bottles of the ‘Discovery,’
and am entirely cured, and if there should
be any one wishing any information I would
gladly correspond with themf if they enclose
return stamped envelope. ’’
Not less remarkable is the following from
' Mr. J. A. Buxton, a prominent merchant
of Jackson. N. C., who says: “I had
bean troubled with skin disease all my
Ufa As I grew older the disease seemed
to be taking a stronger hold upon me. I tried
manv advertised remedies with no benefit,
until I was led to tryDr. Pierce’s Golden
Medical Disconery. when I began taking
(t my health was very poor : in fact, several
persons have since told n that they thought
I had the consumption. I weighed only about
J2S pounds. The eruption on mv skin was
eooompanied by severe itching. It was first
confined to my face, but afterwards spraad
over the nsek and head, and ths Itching be
came simply unbearable. This was my con
dition whan I began taking the ‘Discovery.’
When I would rub ths parts affsetsd a kind
-af brmmny would fall ea.
For a while I saw no change or benefit!
from taking the ‘Discovery,’ but I persisted
in ita use, keeping my bowels open by taking
Dr. Fierce's Pleasant Pellets, and taking as
much outdoor exercise as was possible, until
I beghn to gain in flesh, and gradually the
disease released its hold. I took during the
year somewhere from fifteen to eighteen bot
tles of the ‘Discovery.’ It has now been
four years since I first used it, and though
not using scarcely any since the first year,
my health continues good. My average
weight being 155 to 160 pounds, instead of
125, as it was when I began the use of the
‘ Discovery.’ Many persons have reminded
me of my improved appearance. Some
say I look younger than I did six years
ago when I was married. I am now forty
eight years old, and stronger, and enioy
better health than I have ever done before
in my life.” Yours truly.
Thousands bear testimony, in equally strong
terms, to the efficacy of this wonderful rase- ,
edy in curing the most obstinate diseases. It
rouses every organ into healthy action, puri

through it, cleanses and renews the whole
system. All blood, skin, and scalp diseases,
from a common blotch, or eruption, to the
worst scrofula are cured by It For tetter,
salt-rheum, eczema, erysipelas, boils, car

glands and swellings, it is an unequaled
remedy. Virulent, contagious, hjood-poisoe

INCIDENTS OF A WINDY DAY.
Two Runaway Hat*, an Offlclona Citizen
and Perhaps a Spree.
A wind-propelled brown Derby bat
rolled rapidly from Park iow toward ,
Nassau street yesterday afternoon, j
says the New York Sun, pursued by a
young man, whose lack of headgear j
and eagerness in the chase gave in-'
dlcatlon that he was the owner. At
the corner of ha sau and Spruee !
streets he collided with an older man
and knocked otf the latter's silk bat,
which also became the prey of the
wind, The two hats rolled merrily
down the Spruce street Incline, the
Derby well in the .lead, and the two
owners followed them, while a crowd
gathered to watoh the fun. Up the
hill there, came puffin* a portly and
comfortable looking party, whose at
tention was called to the hats by
sundry howls of.“Hi!” “Ho!” “Hey!”
and other equally intelligible Inter
jections from the owners. The portly
party essayed to stop the first hat
with his hands, In the manner of one
who grabs for a chicken, gingerly,
and with an evident fear that it
might b te. The Derby dodged
nimbly by and the portly one then
took a chance at the tall hat. He
stuck out his foot. The silk hat
lightly tripped over it So did the
owner of the Derby, who was close
behind and didn’t have time to stop.
He plunged forward on the back of
his neck, flopped over once and
landed squarely upon the silk hat
with a force highly detrimental to its
Up he rose with a howl of rage and
welted the surprised portly party in
the diaphragm. Before the other
could retaliate the owner of the silk
bat arrived and pokedbisflst.nto the
the collar of the proprietor of the
brown derby, which was memtirue
making good time toward William
street. Then there was a real trian
gular m x up, and the crowd of
spectators howled with glee. Pres
ently the man without the brown
Derby bethought himself of his hat,
having satisfied his rage by kicking
the shins of the other two men. He
saw it in the act of rolling beneath
the feet of a team of dra; ght horses.
After they had passed over a micro
scopical examination would have been
necessary to identify the remains.
The owner left them lying in the
road, went back to the other two,
who had desended from mutilation
of each other’s features to mutual
objurgation, and suggested that they
all have a drink and talk the matter
over. They disappeared into a
neighboring saloon, and the crowd
melted away. Two minutes there
after a messenger boy emerged from
the saloon and returned shortly with
two skull caps.

“I had an experience to be remem
bered on e at Moosehead,” said
Joseph Williams, a laborer on the
Lewiston streets. “Three of us were
out on the lake one winter’s day in
January when a storm came up. We
had a couple of horses and rode on
sledges made of splft bir.h poles. To
get home and settled in the cabins
before night came on was our one
wish, hut for two hours the icy clouds
had been blowing up on the horizon
and now came down in a whirl of
snow and icy wind. In half an hour
we were lost on the ice. Two hours
later we crossed our own tracks again
and knew that We had been going
about in a circle. To stay out there
all night would be death, and to
keep on traveling about aimlessly
meant to fa 1 at last exhausted.
Finally, as the w nd blew keener
along the level surface and the snow
beat on our bronzed faces with more
cutting effect, we caked a bait and
discussed again the chances. An old
guide who was with us suggested
that we let the horses take their own
way off the lake. It seemed foolish,
but we agreed. Striking the horses
smart clips with the whips we were
surprised to see them turn each to
the left and start off east. We
thought this would take us farther
into the lake, but submitted, and In
half an hour the trees along the bank
loomed up through the storm, and
we were safe. A horse knows
by instinct what a man doubts and
questions in such times.”—Lewiston

Philadelphia is going to give the
world an excellent object lesson in
sewer building,” said Franc.s fleslop
ol Pittsburgh to a St Louis Globe
Democrat ma 1. “They are building
a large sewer on piles, and if they
succeed in their undertaking, which
is to cost $1,500,000, they will have
done a gieat deal toward solving a
very difficult problem. This new sewer
runs along the bed of the Aramlngo
canal, which is too soft to hold the
great weight To get over this diffi
culty piles of yellow pine twelve
inches square are to be driven down
to rock bottom about three feet
apart At the top of them a heavy
plank floor will be placed, and oa
th.s a nine-foot sewer will be built
‘■The undertaking has been dis
cussed by engineers th oughout the
State, and opinions differ very much
as to the result of the undertaking,
which in several features appears to
be daring in the extreme: In this
age of engineering advancement it is
absuid to say anything is impossible,
and the men in charge of this singu
lar work are likely to be able t» con
vince the world that after all there
is something new under the sun.”
lAmlts of Ivory.
It is difficult tj obtain from 'an
elephant's tusk a perfect slab of ivory
more than six inches in diameter, as
the upper end of the tusk, which is
the thickest, is hollow, and the ma
terial is coaser than that in the solid
part of the tusk. Every part of the
tusic is put to use. Even the chips
and sawdust are converted into ivory
black by burning. ,

She Hag Use For Gimlets.
An ingenious woman has found new
ases for that common little boring tool
called a gimlet. One night, while stop
ping at a hotel, her room was entered
and robbed. Being a traveling woman
and realizing that the same thing was
likely to again happen, she hit upon the
gimlet as a protective measure. Every
night thereafter when fate decreed that
ihe must put up at a hotel, she pro
duced her gimlets and made windows,
doors and transoms secure by boring
the gimlet;dean through. One night
when she had gimleted her room so
that she was absolutely safe from mid
night mauraders the cry of “Fire!” was
heard. She was up in an instant. She
law through the transom the reflection
Df flames in the hallway. Escape was
cut off from that quarter. She hastily
unscrewed the gimlets from the win
dow and looking out saw a low roof 30
feet below. So practical a woman
must certainly have had a,clothesline
handy, and such was the fact. In a;
|iffy she had screwed1,two of her much!
beloved gimlets into'the wooden sill,!
fastened an end of the rope to them*
ind climbed down in'; safety to the
roof. The gimlets were' Jburned up In
the fire but the ingenious , woman laid
In another stock, and fromUhat day to
this you can always count'on finding'
from a half dozen to a dozen of the
gimlets in her satchel.—New (York Ad

Tabby Lives on Vegetables
There is a cat in the seclusion of
Hampton Court, England which has
become a strict vegetarian, certainly
on principle, since there is plenty of
meat to be had. This eccentric creature
black from nose to tail, has taken for
her chief diet scarlet runner beans.
Cucumbers she also likes, and carrots,
if they are boiled, while she occasion
ally nibbles away at other vegetables.
But, for some inscrutable reason, this
singular cat will not touch fruit, and,
although she will drink milk, she re
jects the bread that may be mixed with
it. Altogether, there is some talk of
taking this queer animal to London to
have the philosophers talk over her.
Kagle Caught by a Dog.
An Oregon farmer was returning
from meeting one Sunday morning
when his dog started in pursuit of some •
thing on the other side of a wire fence
inclosing a pear orchard. The farmer
jumped over the fence and, to his sur
prise, saw an eagle just spreading its
wings to fly. The dog immediately
fastened on to the bird’s leg and the
farmer seized it around the neck. For
a few minutes there was a tremendous
scuffle, but the bird was finally scared
or choaked into submission and its legs
and wings tied with a section of the
wire fence. Then the farmer carried
his capture home, put it in a cage and
now proudly exhioits it.
It is a good plan with young turkeys
to put dry chaff or straw in their roost
ing places. It will add to their comfort.
