Every spring and summer for six years or more, my health has been so poor from heart trouble and general debility that at tines I Ufa was a burden. I -would become so Emaciated and Weak and Pale that my friends thought I would not live long. I could do scarcely any work at all and had to lie down every few minutes. I began getting worse In January, losing my flesh and feeling so tired. I thought I would try Hood's Sarsapa rilla and I am happy to say I am in better healtb Hood'sCures than I have been for a number of years. My friends remark tone:' Why bow well you look.

It instantly re lieves all burns, scalds and bruises, and in a few days makes an effectual cure of the wound. 25 cts. Reflected Light. A dead white surface has decided ad vantages for reflecting light over a looking glass or a bright surface. Good white blotting paper reflects back 82 per cent of the light cast upon it Many persons arc under the impression that looking glass must be a better reflector than paper or whitewashed surface be cause with looking glass a strong shadow can be cast, while from a dead surface no heavy shadow is obtained. The reason is not so much that the re flected light is less from the dead sur face, but that the reflection is concen trated in the case of the looking glass. With paper or whitewash it proceeds from a vast number of points. Brook lyn Citizen. Street-car drivers and others who are constantly exposed to all kinds of weather, and cannot find time to lay by, should ever bear in mind this plain fact that Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup cures coughs and colds. It is unoqualed. A Iong Sleep. The longest continuous cataleptic sleep known to medical science was re ported from Germany in the spring of 1892; the patient a Stlesian miner having remained absolutely unconscious for a period of four and a half months. The doctors in attenance could not re port anything in the way of symptoms which would suggest that there was something out of the ordinary in the man's slumbers, excepting a complete rigidity of the limbs. One peculiarity which was much commented upon was that the hair grew naturally during the whole of the extended nap, but his beard remained perfectly stationary and lifeless.

It was a young lady who spoke, a beautiful one, too, and her eyes were 'full of she looked, at young man the be fore her. He looked with equal anger &t her, and, taking his hat in hand, he said: "I am son' Angelina, but my mother calls me, and if you had a son, an only son, you would feel deeply hurt if he were to refuse to spend Christmas with you. "Oh, I but " Angelina broke down and suddenly burst into a flood of tear&J Her lover then thought so little of her that he had" neverjCQji sidered her own loneliness, and : what a sad, sad Christmas was in store for herself! She. jvas alone, she had no mother, no" father. A stranger, she had come to Florence as a teacher in the public schools. No one there knew that she had been once in a rich home of her own, with loving parents. Her mother had died in her childhood, and two yean ago her poor father had also left her, when she most needed him. A lawyer had informed her that the forjune which she thought she possessed had been lpst in speculation, and he persuaded her to sell or rent the quaint little home in which she had always lived on one of the small canals of Venice. Sell it? -never! But rents were very low, and she decided to become a teacher that she might make both ends meet and not be obliged to sell the dear home. She did not care to teach in her own native place, and therefore she accepted most willingly an offer from Florence. There she had met Gino, whose na tive city was hers also. He was a sculptor and, though young, his talent soon made him well known. He be longed to an aristocratic family, and had persuaded his parents with great difficulty to let him study art. But now he had attained an assured posi tion, and he hoped soon to be able to make Angelina his wife. Up to this time he had hesitated to tell his par ents of his love for the poor teacher, knowing how proud they were. He had intended to spend Christmas with Angelina, and they had made many plans. First, they would go to mass, and then old Margherita, the faithful servant, who had followed Angelina to Florence, would light the fire in the big chimney, and they would sit and watch the traditional log of wood burn, and have a nice little supper. But now the poor girl saw nothing be fore her but loneliness! "Forgive me, Angelina, my love, forgive me!" cried Gino, kneeling at her feet, as he saw her distress. She smiled through her tears, and, as if her decision were taken at last, she says quickly: "All right, dear, go now, go quickly, for I am so tempted to keep you!" GINO 6EIZED HER HAND. She extends her hand and they part. As he closes the door she calls hastily into the other room: "Come, Mar gherita, I am going to Venice. I am pining to see the dear old place again. Come, let us get ready for to-morrow morning!" And as if she were going to leave within an hour, Angelina hurried to a trunk, to the drawers and closets, and soon she had selected the few things she wished to take with her. Her house had been rented to strangers, but she had made it a point to reserve one room for her own use, in case she should wish to return. Oh, how happy she felt when the train started! Venice, dear old Venice! She loved Venice as only a Venetian can. "Marghcritar"shesays,"Imust go to San Marco before I go home. You take the gondola with the trunk, and I will follow, after I have seen the dear old church again." Poor Margherita does not answer, the tears arc running down her old cheeks, for at last she, too, will be back in her old home again. As soon as Angelina sees Margherita safely on her way, she speeds through the narrow streets, toward the Piazza. She must walk, for her emotion nearly stifles her. It is bitter cold, and the steps of the many bridges are slippery. But the young girl's foot barely touches the ground. The last bridge is reached and she has passed it, when she hears a sudden cry of pain behind her, and, turning sharply, she sees a lady on the ground. "Oh, are you hurt?" Angelina cries; and she hastens to help the lady rise. But it is hard work, for she is not young. "I must have sprained my wrist, and bruised my knee," she groaned. "Can I get you a gondola, signora?" "Xo, thank you, my child. My house is only a few steps distant, Will you help me to reach it?" "Indeed I will. Lean well on me, and we will walk slowly." Angelina supports the old lady and walks gently, asking: "Does it hurt?" "Well, yes, it was a bad fall for an old ladj-. But I beg your pardon! I may detain you. Perhaps you were in haste. It is Christmas, and, probably, you were hurrying to buy some pres ents for your dear ones." "I have no dear ones. I am alone." "Alone!" The old lady looks up at the young and pretty giri, and again she says: "Alone? And no one to spend Christmas with?" "No one, madame. Do not wonder. My friends who knew me when I was a rich girl, or at least thought I was rich, left me when misfortune came, though not without a word of good advice!" She smiled bitterly. But soon her better nature conquered and she added: "I am no better than they were, for I have forgotten the one good friend left to me. Our old serv ant did not abandon roe, and I should &$P" NT" have forgotten to buy her a Christmas gift if it had not been for you!" In a few words she then told the old lady that she was a teacher and earn ing her own living. By that time they had reached Meereoria, and turning into one of the little streets branch ing off from that, they stood before an old palace. I Upon ringing, the door was opened by an old gondolier, who seemed to do , also duty as a servant. "Madonna santa!" he cried, "what has happened to the marchesa?" and had he not been prevented, he would in his fright have called all the house together. But the marchesa said de cidedly: "Give me your arm, Battis ta, and keep quiet." Then, turning to the girl standing in the door, she added: "Grazic, thanks a thousand times, dear child. And please give me your name and address. I hope we may meet again." Angelina gave the desired informa tion reluctantly, for she felt almost hurt at the brevity of this farewell. But the old lady suddenly extended her hand and, pressing Angelina's,said gently: "Go and buy Margherita her present. Good-by." Angelina stood alone. - Why had she felt almost happy, leading this old lady? Now she realized again how lonely she was. But Margherita, at least, would be glad to see her, so she hurried to dear old San Marco, and tried to pray. Alas! she could think of nothing. "Ah!" she sighed, "if I only had a mother!" Stopying at one of the stores she purchased a warm shawl for Margherita; then crossing the piazza, she took a gondola, and in a short time found herself at the door of her own house. It was a quaint little palace, con taining only a few rooms, but it was her home, and she had once been rich and happy in it. Margherita was watching for her darling mistress. The people who had rented it were from the Cadore and had gone to their country home for the holidays, leaving an old man in charge of the house. He had been gondolier for Angelina's parents, so that he and Margherita were old friends, and he, too, loved Angelina-"la padroncina," as he called her. Soon the poor child had forgotten her loneliness, sitting and chatting with those two humble but devoted friends. The next evening was Christmas eve, and Angelina, made some pur chases also for the old man, and pro vided for a nice little supper. Gio vanni, the gondolier, was to take her to mass at seven, and then she would come home and have a quiet evening, As she returned from her errands, she saw a gondola leave her door, and Giovanni standing at the door gazing after it with a curious expression. He was holding a little log of wood in his hand. "What is it, Giovanni?" "I am to give this to the signorina." ne handed her the little log, Angel ina well knew where it came from. While she had been shopping, she had seen Gino in the distance with a gen tleman, bis father, no doubt, and her heart nearly stood still. She hoped he had not seen her, and she hurried hastily into a store. The log showed that he had noticed her, and she was glad he had not stopped to speak to her. Soon it was dark, and Angelina dressed carefully to go to the so-called "midnight mass," which takesplace at seven. She had turned the log of wood over and over, hoping to find a mes sage there, but the only thing she found was the date of the day carved on it. As she stepped into San Marco she told Giovanni where to wait for her, and he returned to his gondola. She had not seen how he had exchanged a sign with some one in the distance. The mass began, and she became completely absorbed in it. She was recalled to herself by the close vicin ity of some one, who seemed to pro tect her from the crowd. She did not look up. She knew it was Gino, and a sudden calm came to her soul. She became lost to all but the pleasure of knowing that he was there. Mass was over. People hurried to get home. It was bitter cold. Ange lina stepped out into the air, when suddenly Gino seized her hand. Draw ing it through his arm he led her to a gondola. No word was spoken until Angelina found hersef under the cover. She said: "Gino, my dear, you must go to your mother. We have to-morrow to be happy in." "I shall go to my mother, darling, never fear! And now tell me about yourself. It is so good that you came!" She told him of her home-longing and of her sudden decision, her journey, and then of the nice old lady. "If I only had a mother like her, it would be such a happiness!" she cried. But here they are already at their journey's end. The gondola has stop ped; she has alighted, helped by Gino. But where is she? Not at home. "O Gino!" she says, "let me go home!" "Trust me, darling, and come," is all the reply which he vouchsafes her. She is so bewildered that she follows him like one in a dream. He holds her hand. "Here she is, mother dear!" he sajs at last, "tell her that we may be happy." Agelina stands in a beautiful par lor, trembling before an old lady in an arm-chair. She sees only a hand stretched in welcome, and hears the words: "My daughter." She kneels at the feet of the dear old lady, and all she says is: "Oh, I have so wished that you might be my mother since yesterday." For she is indeed the marchesa. She cannot rise, she cannot extend both hands, but her eyes tell of the love she has in her heart for the chosen wife of her son. "You shall never be alone again at Christmas, my daughter. Make my Gino happy!' "Ah, have you no word for your father, my child?" says another voice, and again Angelina is held by the encircling arms of Gino's father. "God bless you both! And now quickly come to supper and light the fire of joy. Would you like to burn the log I brought you, my pet?" says Gino teasingly. Supper is over. It has been made happy by mutual confidences. "I have no regret for my misfor tune," says the mother, and as she does not suffer, she is happy as the re sult. Gino had told her as soon as he arrived of his attachment, and while they were hesitating to accept the stranger as a daughter, destiny had brought them nearer each other. They sit and talk until the door opens and the smiling old face of Margherita looks in: "A happy Christ mas, and please, signorina, may we remain in Venice now?" "Yes, my good Margherita." And she smiles gratefully at her lover, who has not neglected to include the faith ful old woman in his plans for the i Christmas celebration. Angelina has quite forgotten that she was ever an gry with him. ALWAYS COOL IN A CRISIS. CeaiM Ag-eat Stone Request fer Advic When Ills Team Baa Away. There is one of the employes in the census bureau in Washington who is regarded by the Washington Post as the most matter-of-fact man in the government service. One would scarcely call him a hero in tho usual sense of the term, but he evi dently has in him somo of the stuff such as heroes arc made of. and there aro occasions when ho would proba bly rise to the point of tho sublime, though, truth to day. he has not done so up to date. His phlegm is of the Teutonic variety, such as would lead him to continue the caro- ful indexing of his field notes in tho midst of a shipwreck or a boiler ex plosion, and if there should ever bo an earthquake or a collapse of the building in which ho was working he would as likely as nos remain in his chair while the floor was going through and ask somo of his fellow workers to hand him a ruler or shove over the paper weights to keep bis notes together. Up to date tho worst story that has been told of him was laid in Western Kansas during the last year's field work. With another agent of tho department he was driv ing around tho country collecting data. One afternoon they got a pair of spirited horses and drove out on one ofvthe long, level cross section roads. After a whilo Mr. Stone asked for the lines. IIo did not know much about driving, but Pro fessor McGillen, who was driving, handed over the ribbons. Tho horses, foeling a strange hand, started off briskly and continued to increaso the cadency in a sort of geometrical progression. Faster they went and faster, till at length Mr. Stone, who was holding tho lines primly in front of him, not unlike a Bociety girl the first timo she tries to handle a T-cart, turned his head slowly in the direc tion of his companion and said: "Professor, do not these horses seem to you to bo going rather rap idly?" yes," replied tho professor with equal calmness, seeing that there was but little danger on tho long straight road. "Yes. Mr. Stone, it strikes me that they are running away with you." "Ah," was the unmoved response. "In such a case, professor, what would you advise a man to do?" HOW TO RUN PAR AND FAST. Keep the Knees Bent, Lean Forward and Lift the Feet Slightly. Physiologists and lovers of athlet ics may bo interested in recent ex periments and researches of a French artillery captain. M. dc Kaoul, who. some fifteen years ago, began to try and find out the most economical and least trying way of walking. There aro many manners of walking, says tho Popular Science News, some of which are much devoid of grace, but it may be supposed that as far as efficiency is concerned, the best method is that which he calls marcho enflection. The principle is to run without leaping, to raise tho body above the ground as little as possible, to keep the knees bent, the upper part of the body inclined forward, so that practically you aro always run ning after your center of gravity. The feet must be raised only very slightly. M. de Raoul, who has now somo years of experience, says that ho can now take any man between 20 and 60 and teach him to run as long as his legs can carry him with out getting out of breath. Some men can, on tho very first trial of the method, run seven or eight miles without stopping, while, with the ordinary tactics, they could not havo run over one mile. Tho first kilometer (a kilometer is five-eighths of a mile) is usually covered in seven minutes and a quarter, tho second in six minutes, and the third in five minutes and forty-five seconds. An interesting feature of M. do Kaoul's researches is that even after a long run, according to his mothod, a stiff walk is no trouble at all; tho muscles which work in both cases do not be long to tho same set. and while ono exorcise is performed tho muscles which minister to the other rest. In a Side Show. A side show attached to a circus which showed in a country town in West Virginia last summer had a big sign: "Only ten cents to seo the most wonderful tiling in tho world." Persons curious enough to pay the dime, found a man sitting on a chair inside whittling a piece of wood. As ho cut away, with an out ward sweep of his knife, ho re marked: "Gentlemen, always whit tle like this, and you will be In no danger of cutting yourselves." This was the whole show. People who had been duped were so anxious to have company that they went out and advised thoir friends to go in, and it is claimed that tho side show did more business than tho circus. Addln? Insult to Injury. Colonel Gilbort Piorco, tho lato minister to Portugal, once picked up in his arms a young lady who stood hesitating at tho corner of a street in an Indiana village, unable to cross it, because a shower had filled it with a rushing torrent of water. Tho young lady submitted without pro test while the colonel strode gallant ly through tho torrent until ho do posited his fair charge on tho oppo site sidewalk, with dry feet. "Sir!" she then said, indignantly, "are you aware that you have insulted me?" "I was not aware of it," replied the colonel; "but seeing that you arc right, I beg to make amends." So saying, he picked up the protesting damsel and restored her to the point where he had first made her ac quaintance. Argonaut Tlio Proof Xoc Wautliifj.

If any aneaiotcs of General "Sam" Houston are told which shew that his tongue wai by no means sjbw orchis wit dulLf As General K had been financial agent to the penitentiary for a number of years, and warmly op posed General Houston's last election as governor of Texas, he feared he would lose his desirable office. He therefore presented a petition in due time, asking that he might be re tained, his "long and faithful services" being urged as a reason for granting the request of the petitioners. "It appears from this petition, gen eral," said the governor, "that you have been in the penitentiary eight years." "Yes, sir." "And you say that you have per formed faithfully each and every duty imposed upon you during that time?" "Yes, sir." "Then, sir," said the governor, with a twinkle in his eye, "it seems to me I ought to pardon you out" Very Queer Aro the sensations experienced by the ner vous and dyspeptic.

Bow to Cure a Black Eye. The Medical Times some time ago gave this antidote for a black eye: There is nothing to compare with a tincture of strong infusion of capsicun annum, mixed with an equal bulk of mncilage or gum arabic, and with the addition of a few drops of glyereine. This should be painted all over the bruised surface with a camel's hair pen cil and allowed to dry on, a second or third coating being applied as soon as the first is dry. If done as soon as the injury is inflicted the treatment will invariably prevent the blackening of the abused tissue. The same remedy has no equal in rheumatic, sore or stiff neck. 1.213 BUSHELS ONIONS PER ACRE. Do you want fine vegetables just twenty days ahead of your neighbors?

There is only one way to cure Deafness, and that is by con stitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or im perfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed Deafness is the result, and unless the inflama tion can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be de stroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothingbutan in flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

Mlulfttcrlng to the Mlad. A century ago a shrewd German recommended to every man overcome with sorrow to force himself each day to study for a fixed period a language or art whatever was most agreeable to him. The work for the brain on a to tally different side from its grief is stim ulating, strengthening. A polical ex ile, also a German, being sentenced to a long solitary imprisonment kept mad ness at bay by decorating the walls of his cell and by making lists and sketch es of people and places he had known. He recommends a man in grief to pay instant attention to the little pursuits or occupations which usually give him pleasure, and to obstinately devote himself to them until his brain has had time to heal. "If we are denied great joys let us earnestly seek to fill their place by small ones," he advises. Peo ple of methodical habits should be giv en occupation which will call forth their genius for organization and sys tem. In short, we should remember that the brain is a material organ as well as the stomach, and, when in dan ger of disease from the exessive strain upon it of one emotion, a counter irri tation from other smaller ones is a wholesome and usually successful treat ment. The Modern Way Commends itself to the well-informed, to do pleasantly and effectually what was formerly done in the crudest man ncrand disagreeably as well.

Very Dear atthe Price. -Queen Caroline, tho wife of George II., seriously thinking of closing St. James' Park, in London, and turning it into a garden for the palace, asked Sir Robert Walpolc what it would cost to do so. "A trifle, madam; only a trifle," replied the minister. "A trifle?" rejoined her majesty: "I know it must be pretty expensive, but can't you tell me as nearly as you can guess?" To which Sir Robert answered. "Why. madam, I believe the whole thing' will cost but three crowns." The "queen had sense enough to see Walp'ole's al lusion to the crowns of England, Scot land and Ireland, and said at once that she would abandon the notion.
