them that they must "let go or die."

"It gives me pleasure to send you this
testimonial so that some other poor sufferer
may be saved, as I was, by Dr. Pierces
Golden Medical Discovery." writes Geo. A.
Thompson, of Sheldon Ave., Chatham. Ont.,
Canada. "I had a cough for years, expector
ated a great deal, and was slowly failing.
Was losing flesh every day. Lost in. weight
from 150 pounds down to 128. My flesh got
soft and I had no strength. Did not say any
thing to any one but made up my mind that
the end was not far off. One day my wife
was reading in the Common Sense Medical
Adviser' about Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery, and I said, that sounds more like
common sense than anything else that I had
heard. I at once bought a bottle of your
famous remedy and before I had taken hall
of one bottle I felt better. Took thirteen
bottles and it made a new man of me. I
gained sixteen pounds and never have had a
cough since. I feel splendid and give all the
credit to your medicine."

Jacob Schiff and the Cook.
Jacob H. Schiff, the banker, gave Ms
cook, Lena, $5,000 for a Christmas pres
ent. Everyone in the Schiff family has
the highest regard for Lena there is
not a dyspeptic atom in a hundred din
ners she prepares. Indeed, it is said,
that the only reason Mr. Schiff wanted
to fight Cornelius N. Bliss at that fa
mous meeting of the Equitable direct
ors, was because Mr. Schiff was late for
a dinner Lena had cooked.
Mrs. Schiff gave Lena a cluster dia
mond ring. Mrs. Felix Wernburg, Mr.
Schiff's daughter, presented the cook
with a gold watch and a neckchain and
Mr. and- Mrs. Mortimer Schiff sent Lena
a handsome check. Lena came to this
country to teach German, but found it
more profitable to cook in the German
fashion. Twenty-five years ago today
she fell off a Christmas tree, so to speak,
into the Schiff household. Now she is
independent financially. She cooks for
love of the Schiffs and of her art.
Santa Was a Burglar.
While lying awake early yesterday
morning listening for Santa Claus to
come, 3-year-old May Bauer, daughter of
Alfred Bauer of Kingsbridge Heights,
heard a window raised? She was sure it
was St. Nicholas and she lay perfectly
still. But the Intense stillness that fol-1
lowed the raising of the window was too
much of a strain on the child's nerves.
She crept into her father's room and
whispered, "Papa, Santa Claus is down
stairs. I heard him raise the window."
Mr. Bauer was out of bed in an in
stant. He guessed it was not Santa
Claus. He telephoned to the police, who
arrived about three minutes after Mr.
Bauer saw two men rush from the
house and disappear. Nothing was stol
en by the intruders, who were evident
ly frightened by the telephone bell. Lit

The vagrant cats and dogs that live
at the Bide-a-wee home for stray ani

a glorious Christmas celebration. I
started very early in the morning, when
the fifty animal waifs found that Santa
Claus had been busy. Each of the dogs
had been left a shining new collar, while
the cats were delighted to find brilliant
ribbons in their stockings. There were
explosions of ecstacy all over the home
and it was agreed that there were to be
no fights during the holiday. In the af
ternoon a number of society women
dropped in to extend greetings.
