The new style of angular handwriting
reminds one of the round hand that suc
ceeded the copy-hook pothooks of olden
times, or of the old fashioned picket
fence on a rampage, or the monumenta
slabs of an out-west cemetery. AJ1
uniformity is skillfully avoided by the
expert calligraphist and the letters are
so large that he who runs may read.
Young ladies affect this style, which is
an importation of the Anglo maniacs.
It is especially popular in Washington
among diplomatic circles. In Chicago
there is a special school to teach it. For
the time it is the most popular way for
the scholar to make her mark, it being
peculiarly exclusive to lady correspond

The Queen Regent of Spain is knock
ing the blue laws of Spanish etiquet to
pieces at a jolly rate. The other day
she called a meeting of the Ministry at
the Castle of Aranjuez. When the
statesmen reached the gate of the park
they found the Queen and the Princess
Isabel wailing for them. The Queen
was in a victoria and the Princess
Isabel was in a drag and four. The
Queen was driving. She invited Senor
Segasta to take a seat beside her, and
the other Ministers were accommodated
in the drag. On reaching the castle
coffee was brought and the Queen or
dered cigars to be produced as well
and offered to the gentlemen. The
Ministers seemed to hesitate. In all
the annals of Spanish history no sub
ject has ever smoked in the presence of
a Queen. The Queen Regent, however,
gave the command, and the Ministers,
like dutiful subjects, obeyed. Gold

whereupon they received an invitation
to his palace, where they were most
kindly received. A servant took them
through the palace and showed them
everything of interest, with which they
were, of course, greatly delighted, their
joy culminating when Prince Bismarck
suddenly appeared and address

walking with them for some time in the
garden before bidding them farewell.
That Tired, Feeling
The -warm weather has a debilitating effect,
especially upon, those -who are -within doors most
of the time. The peculiar, yet common, com
plaint known, as "that tired feeling," is the
result. This ieeUng can be entirely overcome by
talcing Hood's Sarsaparilla, which gives new life
and strength to all the functions of the body.
"I could not sleep, had no appetite. I took
Hood's Sarsaparilla and soon began to sleep
soundly could get up without that tired and

For Good Purposes.
Mrs. M. A. Dauphin, of Philadelphia, ii
well known to the ladies of that city from
the great good she has done by means Of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
She writes Mrs. Pinkham of a recent
interesting case. "A young married lady
came to me Buffering with a severe case of
Prolapsus and Ulceration. She commenced
taking the Compound and in two months
was FUiiT RESTORED. In proof of this she
soon found herself in an interesting con
dition. Influenced by foolish friends she
attempted to evade the responsibilities of
maturity. After ten or twelve days she
came to me again and she was indeed in a
most alarming state and suffered terribly.
I gave her a table-spoonful of the Com
pound every hour for eight hours until she
fell asleep, she awoke much relieved and
evidently better. She continued taking the
Compound, and in due season she became
the mother of a fine healthy boy. But for
the timely use of the medicine she believes
her life would have been lost."

"My httle boy had been troubled with hip-joint
disease for two years. When he commenced the
use of your 'Golden Medical Discovery' and
'Pellets,' he was confined to his bed, and could
not be moved without suffering great pain. But
now, thanks to your Discovery,* he is able to be up all the time,
and can walk with the help of crutches. He does not suffer any
pain, and can eat and sleep as well as any one. It has only been
about three months since he commenced using your medicine.
I cannot find words with which to express my gratitude for the
benefit he has received through you.

UUntUs It has helped both my husband and myself. Two
years ago Mr. Stowell was afflicted with what ap
peared to be asthma, and our altitude being so high, the difficulty
in breathing attendant upon this distressing malady was greatly
increased. But he began to improve at once after commencing'
the use of your 'Discovery,' and was entirely cured by this won
derful medicine. As for myself, I have used it for nervous and
general debility, and for an affection of the kidneys and bladder,
and I found that it was without a rival for these complaints. We
are now never without your' Discovery.""
