EVERYTHING GOES WRONG
In the bodily mechanism when the liver
gets out of order. Constipation, dyspepsia,
contamination of the blood, imperfect as
similation are certain to ensue. But it is
easy to prevent these consequences, and
reovo their cause, oy a course of Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters, which stimulates
the biliary organ and regulates its action.
The direct result is a disappearance of the
pains beneath the ribs and through the
shoulder blade, the nausea, headaches, yel

j tongue, and sour odor of the breath, which
characterize liver complaint. Sound di

'SHE WON THE BET.
But It Was Unfortunate Work and She
Won't lo It Again.
Pretty Fanny Beale, a lively Cincinnati
bud, is visiting her cousin Nellio in Plqua.
Young Mr. Filley, of St Louis, and his
sister Mina are also visiting at the same
house. Barnum'a olrous was in Piqua and
young Mr. Filley took the girls to see the
show. In discussing the bhow afterward
the young man expressed his particular
wonderment at the feats of a female con
tortionist. He was esp'ecially amazed at
tho highly accomplished manner in which
she twisted her foot around the back of her
neck and made a. cushion rest for her head
out of her heeL The warmth with which.
Mr..Fifley expressed his admiration of this
act of the contortionist seemed to nettle
Miss Bealo a trifle, and she turned up her
nose and said:
"Pshaw! That isn't anything to brag
about. I can do it myself 1"
Cousin Nellie and Miss Filley screamed,
and assured Miss Fanny that she was aw
ful, and young Mr. Filley laughed at her
and pooh poohed. But the spoiled beauty's
Cincinnati sporting blood was up, and she
turned to Mr. Filley and said in decided
"I'll just bet you tho price of a box of
kid gloves that I can!"
Young Mr. Filley promptly took tho bet.
Then the delicate question as to how Miss
Boale's ability to perform the acrobatic
feat could be proved to tho satisfaction of
the young gentleman arose, and it was
finally settled that Cousin Nellie should
be present while the act was on as referee
for Miss Beale, and that young Mr. Filley's
sister should also bo there in tho interest
of her brother.
The three girls retired to Miss Bcale's
room, and young Mr. Filley waited on tho
piazza for an official report of the result of
the feat Spasmodic bursts of mirth from
Miss Bealo's room reached his ears for a
time, and then there was a painful si.ence
for a few seconds. This was finally brokon
by screamB of laughter, an exclamation of
wonder and loud clapping of hands in the
"Blinked if I don't believe tho little tar

Another period of painful silence follow

This was followed by a scream or two not
prompted bymirthfulness or wonderment.
Suddenly Cousin Nellie burst from tho

tones for her mother. Young Mr. Filley
"Has she done it, Nellie"" he asked.
"Oh, Mr. Filley!" Miss Nellie sobbed,
"she has done it, but she can't undo it!
Please run for a doctorl"
Fortunately a physician of forty years'
practice in tho town lived only two squares
away. Young Mr. Filley called hii in a
hurry. Ho was a good' while in Miss
Beale's room, but when ho left it he was
smiling. When Miss Bealo came out an
hour or so later she was a trifle lame, but
she announced triumphantly to young
Mr. Filley that she had won the bet. The
official report of the referees unanimously
sustained the claim, and it was promptly

Swimming a Good Exorcise.
Few people realize the importance of
knowing how to swim. Swimming is
taught to tho cadets at the Annapolis
Naval academy, but not to tho West
Pointers, and the statistics of the late civil ,
war show howimportant it is that soldiers ,
should know how to swim. During the
war tho number of men killed in action
was 87,058, while the number drowned was
100 officers and 4,83S men, the majority
being drowned under such circumstances
that a few strokes would have been suf
ficient to save life.
Some object to swimming on the ground
that it is productive of colds, that it may
cause heart failure, and that when in
dulged in at the seashore there is danger
from sharks. An expert claims that there
is little danger of taking cold Of course
there are many weak people whose lungs
and heart are in such a condition that they
should not venture to swim, but at the
same time the neglect to learn to swim in
early childhood the neglect of this emi
nently hygienic exercise is probably large
ly responsible for many flabby hearts and
weak lungs. Swimming is s tonio and
bracing exercise. It assists in the develop
ment of tho muscular system, and exerts a
favorable influence on the bodily functions,
such as digestion, nutritien, respiration,
circulation and innervation. It is excel
lent for getting the body in what sporting
men call "condition." Aside from tho
physical advantages swimming gives moral
courage. Forest, Stream and Farm.
Immigration in w York.
How immigration will work rapid
changes at times is shown in the stone
cutting and carving trade of New York.
Formerly there were but few skilled
workmen, and these commanded very
high wages. In the past few years over
a thousand expert artisans have come
from Italy to pursue their calling in
Now York. They receive from $1.50 to
$2.50 a dar less than bricklayers, and
neither strike nor get drunk. As a re
sult, the old hands are being driven out
of business. As a pleasanter result,
nearly all the new houses near the park
are a mass of rich and beautiful carving.
There will probably be another change
before long, as the labor agitators are1
trying their best to form the Italians into

WOMEN ON CANAL BOATS.
LIFE IN THE CABINS THAT ARE FOUND
NAVIGATING THE ERIE.
Women Wlio Feel That They Are Juit Ri
Good as Their Sisters on Land eatly
Furnished Humes Hotr the "Women
Pass Their Time A Prodigy of Nine.
There are few among the many who
watch the long lines of canal boats enter
ing the Erie canal locks at West Troy that
have tho faintest idea how the women
aboard these boats live and what class of
people they are. The prevailing impression
seems to be that none hut the roughest of
women would or could live on board such
craft, and that the Jife and surroundings
must be of the hardest sort.
Bright and early one morning our artist
climbed aboard one of a long row of boats
that were awaiting their turn to pass
through the weighing lock at Green Island,
and almost the first step he took after get
ting aboard he met an elderly woman in a
neat pcint dress and white- apron, who
smiled in a quiet way when the visitor's
business was made known.
"So jou want to see how women live
aboard these boats, and be told about it,
too," she said, as 6he led the way back to
ward the cabin companionway. "Well, I
for one am right glad you have come, and
that what you hear and see will be printed,
for I realize more than you do how great a
prejudice exists against us as a class and
also how widespread are the false ideas en
tertained in the public mind relative to our
life along the canal."
! " A HOMELIKE CABIN.
She directed the visitor to stoop low as
he began the descent of the cabin stairs,
and the admonition came none too soon,
for the stairways are low and steep, with
no head room to spare. But once inside the
cabin it was quite another matter, for a
considerable portion of these big boats is
allotted to living quarters. This cabin was
especially roomy and homelike, for the
floor had been scrubbed and rescrubbed
until it was as white as snow.
In the center of the room a large square
rug left but little of the floor boards to be
seen, ft was of a pretty, bright pattern,
and a little white dog lay fast asleep in the
center of one of the big roses that graced
the pattern. Over this several other hair
or carpet mats had. been placed at the foot
of the stairs or by theNlounge that stood to
the right of the 'door. Tiny curtains of
some sort of dainty white stuff fluttered
with the morning breeze as it swept softly
in over a bunch of "love entangled" that
grew in a little flower pot on the window
Pictures were everywhere about the pan
eled sides of the cabin, and a canary bird
in a gilded cage sang sweetly in the win
dow near tho pretty flower. The doors of
the staterooms stood open, and disclosed a
pretty picture of snowy bed spreads and
fancy pillow shams, while the kitchen,
with its shining pots and pans, was an
ideal place for a good cook.
"We do most of our cooking up on deck
during the warm weather, and the men
put awnings up to shield' us from the sun.
It keeps the smell of the CQoking away
from the cabin and leaves it in a much
cooler condition," the woman explained,
as she kindly offered a cup of warm cfpffee
to licr visitor. , -'
now tiiey spend tub winter
During the winter month's most of the
boats tie up in the Erie or Atlantic basins
at New York city, and through all these'
long winter days the women aboard the
200 or 300 boats go visiting and give parties
and dances pretty much the same as their
sisters on land whose abiding places have
rather more stability. Through the sum
mer, of course, there is less opportunity
for social intercourse while the boats are
on tho move, but when they tie up for
orders or to load at the principal points the
women get together and often organize a
party to go off on picnics and excursions
on land, the men being busied in loading
When the artist boarded the second boat
a tall, broad shot Jdered man, evidently the
captain of the boat, seemed to be in especi
ally good humor, for he laughed over tha
ran the artist had stated to him before
wwmewlng the vromen at the other end

was their especial- 'sstammng ground."
I While going up he stopped the newspaper
t man suddenly, and, after an inquiry as to
whether he wore married, explained that
he had two good looking daughters in tho
after cabin, and that "ho would, after dis
covering that his caller was a single man,
have to consult their mother before he
would run the risk of letting him see them.
This he did in a good nntured way by call
ing down tho hatch of the cabin: "Say,
there, Jennie, here's a young dudo that
wants to make pictures of how ye live;
think it's safe to let him down there among
TREATMENT IN THE STORES.
In answer his wife came up the compan
ionway way and welcomed the reporter to
the cabin helm, with instructions to make
himself "to home." It would have been
a most bashful young man, indeed, who
would not have felt at homo among this
jolly pnrty. The girls, with their pretty
faces, came right up to the interviewing
scratch, and told everything they knew
about canal boat life, and how they were
treated by clerks in the stores when they
went shopping in town if they askrd that
their purchases be delivered on a canal boat.
"Why," explained the youngest of tho

were paying our bills anu giving orders tor

Then tho two told of how they had spent
the winter in tho Erie basin of the dances
and parties and wedding- and the fun they
had had roaming over the 300 boats.
On another boat there was a good organ
and r. young woman, w ho boasted that shfo
was the captain's daughter, could steer a
bojit, cook a dinner aud play the organ, and
was only 9 years old.
Altogether, the women of the canal havo
quite as nice a life and are just as nice peo

Our special good fortune was to be among
the fewuests invited to witness the caul
Icadaro given by the members o the Jockey
club in honor of the young and lovely wife
of a certain European diplomat resident
in Mexico. One by one the cavaliers rode
round fhe corner of the building into the
course before us, halting a moment to rein
their chargers up to the grand stand, there
under the colors of Mexico floating in the
winds to bespeak the favor of some fair
friend. As by one consent they all rode at
full tilt to the end of the course, across
which was a rough rail fence, serving to
pea in a number of bulls, ponies and mules.
A servant lifted the rude gato and others
belabored a- poor bull, until, wild with
rage, it ran down the course with all its
clumsy speed. There was a wheeling of
horses, the mounted servants riding at the
head of the already infuriated animal con
tinuing to urge it to further 6peed by re
peated blows over the head and shoulders.
The cavaliers, meantime racing their steeds
until one shot for ahead of the others,
came up alongside the bull, when the
leader reached out and grasped its tail in
his right hand, then getting a firm hold,
by a quick and sudden trick threw his
rigmS leg over the tail which, ho still held.
By spurring his horse to the utmost of his
power he dragged the poor tormented bull,
whirling it a few rods and throwing it to
the ground with much force.
It is a good horseman who can do this,
and not by any means were all the assem
bled members of the Jockey club able to
accomplish it, even though superbly mount
ed. Most of them could speed their nags,
and, overtaking the bnlf, catch him by the
tail, bun when it came to the quick jerk at
the same instant that the leg is thrown
over the tail, ah! that was another matterl
Although there were perhaps twenty bulls,
after an hour or two hey became, thor
oughly jaded. Then tho gallants dis
mounted, and, giving an arm each to a
lady, conducted all of us to a lovely gar
den near by, where the scene suddenly
changed and took tho form of a fete cham

A lieutenant walked over the rock and un
doubtedly was dead before ho reached tho

the fact. Indeed, when he came to fill in
his report and reached the question, "Has
anything extraordinary happened while
you were an officer of the guard?" he
wrote In the blank space reserved for the

Beware of Imitations, there Is Only One
A "YVajjner Anecdote.
Mr. J. B. Wekeriin is a French musician
and composer who passes some of his leis
ure hours in collecting, from out-of-the-way
sources, anecdotes end general gossip
concerning things musical. In the second
volume of his "Musicana" appears a Wag
ner story, aptly illustrative of the force of
prejudice, whioh seems to be quite as en
titled as justice to an eye bandage. Stu
dents of Wagner's life know that, while
struggling for a precarious wage in Paris
fifty years ago, he arranged a pianoforto
edition of Donizetti's "La Favorita." His
name, then almost unknown, did not com
mend the arrangement, and the publisher
accordingly had it printed in very small
letters on the title page. Years passed.
"Tannhauser" was produced at the Grand
Opera, and Wagner was everywhere spoken
of, if not quite everywhere spoken against.
Tho publisher at once brought out a now
edition of "La Favorita," with "Richard
Wagner" in largo letters. Imagine his as
tonishment whon, one day, n customer en
tered ths bhop, and. laying ft oopy of Doci
tztti'a opera on tho counter, observed:
"Look here, sir; I have brought back thia
cooro! Since yon havo had it arranged by
Richard Wagner one can no longer undcr
ntand a bits of itl" Beaton Herald.

Nothing- is so beneficial in assisting

It is a simple vegetable compound. Is
harmless to the most delicate child, yet
it forces the poison to the surface and
eliminates it from the blood.
I contracted a severe ense of blood poison
