CAN'T GO BEHIND THEM.
There is great intensity of the physical
condition sometimes, and there are facta
which we cannot go behind In illustra

of a prompt and permanent cure, the fol

Sheed suffered terribly with chronic
neuralgia. She writes from 1110 Maryland

writes from 224 Eleventh Street, S W as
follows: "Four years ago I sent you a vol

The Most Abject of SlaveriesJs There
The New York papers lately published a
very pathetic story about a very popular
emotional actress. It was to the effect that
she had become a confirmed victim, of the
opium habit, involving an almost total loss
of physical and mental powers, and actual
The story was at once denied by her
friends, who say she has suffered simply
from nervous prostration, is in noneed of
pecuniary aid, and is on the wayto speedy
Opium victims are usually hopeless, help
less slaves, mind weakened, lacking energy
for any effort toward recovery, rapidly
drifting into jmbecihty and untimely
A peculiar feature is that victims craftily
conceal it from their nearest friends. A
young lady at school near Philadelphia was
recently found to be secretly addicted to it,
keeping her "medicine" in a school-room
inkstand, and injecting the fluid into
her arm with a stylograpbio pen!
In the Chicago J* arm field and Stockman,
September 24, 1887, is this letter signed S.
T. from Barstow, Ky.: "I missed the
paper that had my letter in, so I did not
know that you made the request to know
what it was I used to break up the mor
phine habit, until I got a letter from a gen
tleman asking information. I should have
answered sooner. It was Warner's safe
cure. I should have given it when I wrote
the letter, but it looked too much like an ad
This voluntary statement goes to confirm
the claim madeby the proprietors of War
ner's safe cure, that it is the onlyremedy in
the world whichhas anydecidedpower over
diseases of the kidneys and liver, and that
this terrible habit can not be cured until
these organs hav*o first been restoredto full
health, because they are the ones chiefly af
fected oy this drug.
Editor Wm. A. Bode, of Alton, HL, was
completely cured of the opium habit, ac
quired by long use in a painful malady,
with Warner's safe cure. It can not be
cured at all if the kidneys and liver are dis-
It is not claimed that there is any thing
In Warner's safe cure atone which will do
away with the habit, except that it puts the
kidneys and liver in a healthy condition,
giving the whole system that strength and
tone without which any attempt to throw
oft the habit would be vain
It is because physicians have discovered
that no other remedy is so beneficial in re
storing health to the liver, kidneys and gen
eral system as the one stated that it nas
come into general use in connection with
the special remedies for the cure of the
dreadful opium habit.
One of the worst features of the opium
habit is the deadening of mental and moral
sensibilities proportion as it weakens the
physical system and the will power.
Women in Public Lite.
Women in politics have always been
more or less conspicuous in this coun
try. Perhaps of late years they have
become more noticeable in this respect.
The history of Andrew Jackson's Ad
ministration is a pi oof of how much
trouble between political friends can be
caused sometimes innocently by a
woman's personality. Kate Chase
Sprague was at one time a power in
Washington, befoie whom great states
men bowed, and she was the support
upon which her father leaned during
all the yeais when he toiled upwards
with longing eyes towards the Presi
dency which he never reached. John
A. Logan's wife, with her blight face
and white hair, outlined against the
dark, burly pei sonality of her husband
will always be a remembered figure in
National politics. Had he lived she
would have continued her ceaseless
struggle to make him President and
she would have kept up hei unchang
ing custom of finding new friends daily
for her husband among the politicians
visiting Washington. Mrs. Hayes made
herself quite a conspicuous chaiacter
dining her husband's term of office,
and though she was a modest, shrink
ing little woman, who had no love for
public affairs, she was credited with
managing a good part of the Govern
ment business for her easy-going hus
band. These are only a few instances
out of the hundreds where women have
within the last few years impressed
their personality on political affaus in
this country. If the full truth were
written about the history of legislation
in Washington it might be amazing to
note how much of women's influence
and women's work run through the
whole network of our National affairs
and Government.New York Qraphio.
An Unlovely Character.
An experience with a woman who
makes life a burden to everybody about
her by her relentless insistence on con
tinual flattery as the price of peace in
her house is thus discussed by the New
Yoik Graphic: She has a painful doubt
as to whether she is the most lovable
being on the globe. She insists that
everyone who comes within range shall
contribute to strengthen her wavering
conviction on this point. Any conversa
tion in her piesence that does not feed
it wounds it. Yo cannot discuss Mr.

The Wife of a Russian Priest.'w
There is only one happy woman in
Russiathe priest's wifeand it is a
common mode of expiession to say "as
happy as a priest's wife." The reason
why she is so happy is because her
husband's position depends upon her.
If she dies he is deposed and he
becomes a mere layman, and his
property is taken away from him and
distributed, half to his children and
half to his Government. The dreadful
contingency makes the Russian priest
careful to get a healthy wife, if he can,
and makes him take extraordinary
good care of her after he has secured

Bsw Pork Habit.
t. James Gazette: A man dying of
trichinosia inspires, like every unfor
tunate wretch.a certain degree of pity
But, judged on moral grounds, he can
scarcely be placed on a higher level
than the man dying of delirium tre
mens and, as a matter of fact, better
men have died of the insidious alcohol

fest the flesh of pigs, What there can
be so seductive in porkand raw pork,
above allthat sensible people, as Ger
mans in general must surely be con
sidered, should devour it uncooked and
uncured, it is hard indeed to imagine.
The Germans, however, are so much
addicted to this kind of food that whole
families, whole populations, will some
times fall ill from morbid indulgencies
in it and it is reported from Hamburg,
where raw pork is consumed (by the
inhabitants) in dangerously large
quantities, that on Sunday night, in
one family alone, nine persons were
suffering from trichinosis.
The origin of trichinosis has been
fantastically traced to a certain herd of
swine, not all of which "ran down a
steep place into the sea." The fiends
which fill the swine whose flesh pro
duces in those who eat of it the disease
now affecting the inhabitants of Ham
burg, where a "severe outbreak" of it
is said to have taken place, are named
"trichinae." They can be driven out
by fire, which proves that there is
nothing esssentially diabolical in their
nature. But the Germans, who refuse
to* cook their ham, do not think it
worth while to expel them.

Many times women call on their family physicians, suffering, as they imagine, one from dyspepsia, another from heart disease,
another from liver or kidney disease, another from nervous exhaustion or prostration another with w- hero or there, and in
this way they all present alike to themselves and their easy-going and indifferent, or over-ousy doctor, separate and 3 rtwet diseases,
for which he prescribes his pills and potions, assuming them to be such, when, in reality, they are all only eymptoms caused bv eom.4
womb disorder. The physician, ignorant of the cause of suffering', encourages hispractice until large bills are made. The euScritig
