Fellin/r Trees by Electricity.
Trees are now felled to a consider
able extent by.electricity. A platinum
?wire heated white hot by the current
is used, stretched between two poles,
as a saw. There is less work than with
a saw, no saw dust is produced, and
the charring of the surface of division
tends to provent decay. In some cases
the time required to fell a tree by this
method is only one-eighth of that
necessary for sawing.-Electric.

FINANCIAL WOBBY AND PHYSICAt,
EXERTION NOT THE GREATEST
DESTROYER OF HUMAN LIFE.
For Humanity's Sake, After Thirty-six
Years of Nerve-Creeping Slavery, Ho
Tells How Ho Was Set Free.
Caldwell, N. J., March 26.1893.-(8pecial.)
-Sirico one of our prominent citizens suf
fered, so terribly from tobacco tremens, has
made- known hts frightful experience in be
half of humanity, the ladles here aro making
tobacoo-uslng husbands' lives miserable with
their entreaties to at once quit tobacco.
The written statement of S. J. Gould is
attracting wide-spread attention. When
interviewed to-night he said : " 1 commenced
using tobacco at thirteen; I am now forty
nine; so, for thirty-six years I chewed,
smoked, snuffed and rubbed snuff. In the
morning I chowed before I put my pants on,
and for a long time I used two ounces of
chowing and eight ounces of smoking a day.
Someti mes I had a chew in both checks and
a pipe in my mouth at once Ten years ago
I quit drinking whiskey. I tried to stop to
bacco timo and again, but could not My
nerves craved nicotine and I fed them till
my skin turned a tobacco-brown, cold, sticky
perspiration oozed from my skin, and
tncklod down my back at the least exer
tion or excitement. My nerve vigor and
my life was being slowly sapped. I male up
my mind that ? had to quit tobacco or die.
On October 1 Istoppod, and for throe days
I suffered the tortures of the damned. On
the third day I got so bad that my partner
acoused me of being drunk. Isaid, *No. I
have quit tobacco.' 'For God's sake, man.'
he said, offering mo his tobacco box, 'take a
chew; you will go wild;' and I was wild.
Tobacso was-forced into nw and I was taken
home dazed. I saw double and my memory
was beyond control, but I still knew how to
chew and smoke, which I did all day, until
toward night, when my system got tobacco
soaked again. The next morning I looked
and felt as though I had been through a long
spell of sickness. I gave up in despair, as I
thought that I could not cure myself. Now.
for suffering humanity, I'll tell what saved
my life. Providence evidently answered my
good wife's prayers and brought to her at
tention in our paper un article which read:
'Don't Tobacco Spit and Smoko Your Lifo
"What a sermon and warning in these
words! Ju3t what I was doing. It told
about a guaranteed cure for tho tobacco
habit, called No-To-Bnc. I sent to Druggist
Hasler for a box. Without a grain of faith
I spit out my tobacco cud, and put into my
mouth a little tablet upon which was
Btamped No-To-Bac. I know it sounds like
a lie when I tell you that I took eight tablets
the first day, seven the next, five the third
day, and ail the nerve-creeping feeling, rest
lessness and mental depression was gone. It
was too good to be true. It scorned like a
dream. That was a month ago. I used one
box. It cost me one dollar, and it is worth
a thousand. I gained ten pounds in weight
and lost all desire for tobacco the first day.
I sleep and eat well, and I have been bene
fited in more ways than I can tell. No, the
euro was no exception in my case. I know
of tai people right hero in Caldwell who
have bought no No-To-Bac from Hasler, and
they have been cured. Now that I realize
what No-To-Bac has done for me and others,
I know why it is that the makers ot this
wonderful remedy, the Sterling Remedy
Company, of New York and Chicago,
say: 'We don't claim to cure
every casa. That's Fraud's talk, a lie, but
we do guarantub three boxes to cure tho to
bacco habit, and in case of failure we are.
perfectly willing to refund money.' I would
not give a public indorsement if I were not
certain of its reliability. I know it Ls backed
by men worth a million. No-To-Bac has
been a God-send to me, and I firmly believe
it will cure any case of tobacco using if faith
fully triod, and there are thousands of to
bacco slaves who ought to know how easy it
ls to get tree. There's happiness ia No-To
Bac tor tho prematurely old men, who think
as I did that they are oid and worn out, when
tobacco ts the thing that destroys their vital
ity and manhood."
The public should be warned, however,
against the purchaso of any of the many imi
tations on the market, as the success of No
To-Bac has brought forth a host of counter
feiters and Imitators. The genuine No-To
Bac is sold under a guaranteo to cure, by all
druggists, and every tablet has tho word No
To-Bac plainly stamped thereon, and vou
run no physical or financial risk in purchas
ing the genuine article._

THE TWO HIGHWAYMEN,
BEG Als at last to
think that the ball
would never come
to an end. I had
looked forward to
it with absolute
dread, for I was
well awaro of the
an which my
uncle and Mme.
'faM'" Trelawney had de
vised between them.
I had already recog
nized that the lady's son was charm
ing in his boyish frankness, but I had
seen from the first that it was intend
ed he should propose to me before
the night was ended-this night of all
nights in the year!-and I was re
solved on my part that he should do
nothing of the sort.
At any rate, when the hour of our
departure had come,*his devotion was
still undeclared, and Madam looked
upon me a shado less likely,I thought,
when I went to take farewell of her.
But, in truth, I was by this time too
completely overcome by excitement to
notice little details in tho comport
ment of these people. . They were all
conspirators against my happiness and
Dick's; I know they would be check
mated within the hour, and already I
could have laughed in their faces.
The drive appeared interminable. 1
began to think that Dick must have
come early and grown tired of wait
ing, and I knew that if li9 did not keep
tryst my heart would simply break.
And then, frighteuing me despite my
eager anticipation of it, came the first
I saw a sudden blackness move
past the window. A pistol cracked,
and as the carriage ceased to move I
heard a man's voice speaking sternly
to the coachman and his companion
on the bos. It struck me the stern
ness was siugularly well acted ; for
the coachman had been in the plot
from the first. He happened to have
a fancy for my maid. Genefer, and
Dick's bribe was a ' aperfluity once
she had undertaken to make sure of
My uncle stirred in his corner,mut
tering incoherently, but he was still
more than half asleep when the door
of the coach was opened and a tall,
graceful figure (how well I knew it,
having met him frequently at dusk on
the edge of the old plantation) stood
dimly outlined against the darkness.
The newcomer was masked, and put a
pistol to my uncle'6 head.
"Yon ride late, sir," he said, and I
wondered at the skill with which he
disguised his voice. "I presume you
carry firearms, and must ask that you
will trust them to my keeping."
I can hardly report my uncle's
words. Indeed, they were not co
herent, so great was his indignation,
But he gave up his pistols and the
highwayman straightway flung them
far into the darkness.
"Your purse," he continued polite
ly. Then, when he had received this
also : "Sir Bichard Courtney's luck at
the cards has passed into a proverb.
Tell your friends, 6ir, that you have
given their I. 0. XL's to ono who will
never ask for payment ; for I have no
doubt I shall ?ml them here."
He put the-purse into his pocket.
"There is a diamond ring, too," he
said, "and a watch." And these
things he also received and pocketed.
All this time my uncle had been
cursing him for a thief, and swearing
ho would see him hanged within a
month upon the highest point of the
moorland. As for me I had enjoyed
the proceedings to begin with, but
now I bogan to be afraid. Perhaps
time was being wasted. There were
others who must use this road in re-1
turning from the ball, and there was
the risk of their coming to tho rescue
of my dear uncle and spoil tho plans
on which so much depended. More
over, I conceived that my uucle would
be hugely angry when he discovered
hov.- prettily he had bean deceived ; it
was possible he might be carried by
his resentment so Jar as to make it
appear that this mock robbery was
real and so bring Dick to serious trou
ble. It was with great relief I saw
'that it was ended.
Thc highwayman spoke again. 1 'You
have a lady in your company," he
said. "I must trouble her-"
"Scoundrel !" said my uncle, angrier
than he had been at all. "Do you
rob helpless women, also? Oh, but
yon shall hang high !"
"'Beauty,'" quoted the highway
man-"and I am sure tho lady is
beautiful-'Beauty unadorned is best
adorned.' 1 must ask the lady to step
from her carriage a moment and give
me tho jewelry of which she surety
has no need."
My uncle would have hindered me,
but I was passed him in a moment and
stepped out of the carriage.
"Tour necklet, " said the highway
man, holding forth his hand.
I took the pearls from my neck and
pressed his hand in passing them to
him." "Be quick!"! said in a whis
per. "Where is your horse?"
He paused a moment. "I saw the
gleam of a bracelet," he said. "I
must relieve you of that also."
Again I obeyed him, tut the fear
that others would come while he still
stopped fooling became more urgent.
"I'm ready," I whispered, so eagerly
that I wonder my undo did not hear.
"Why do you wait?"
Again there was a pause. He ap
peared a little disc .meer ted.
"And I think you are wearing a
ring," he went on.
I took the ring from my linger. As
I gave it to him I clutched his hand,
secure in the protectiug darkness.
"Take me !" I .said. "Take me !"
Again he was sileut for a moment.
When he spoke it was iu a curiously
altered voice, and with a little de
"Dost meau it, sweet?" he cried.
"Come, thou !"
I gave a scream of alarm (a portion
of the play we had arranged together)
as he caught mo round the waist and
lauded me on his horse. A moment
later I was dinging to him for dear
life, as we dashed headlong into the
black night and went forward acr
the moorland. I heard him chue!
as my uncle roared his indign?t
We rode on and on through
darkness. At first my excitement i
so great as to render thought imp
' sible ; moreover, the riding was of '
roughest, and I had all I could dc
keep my seat. But gradually, fl
began to grow more acoustomedto
situation, I was overtaken with a m
dreadful misgiving. The rider 1
hitherto seemed like enough to Di
for I had known he would do his h
to change his voice ; and as for
foolish robbeiy, it was just of a vi
with his natural love of mischief.
But now I began to feel certain tl
some impostor had taken his part ; tl
I had eloped with another man-o
him a common highwayman. Imag
my distress ! 1 could conceive of
method of extricating myself from I
position ; a sense of blank helplessn
came over me, and I could do norn?
than cling tightly to the higfiwaym
and await the event.
We had lidden some miles, when
suddenly drow rein and dismountc
landing me lightly besido him.
"Upon my soul !" he said, "here
a pretty adventure! Heaven kne
that I had always a passion for 1

tell me, what am I to do with you?'
I suppose I had hoped against hor.
to find my fears were justified was
disastrous blow to me, nor could
make any answer.
"I would not wish a braver swe
heart,'' he continued, speaking w:
an odd and attractive perplexit
"But what have we gentlemen of t

of his words and his pleasant voice,
lost command of myself and bust for
into foolish weeping.
"Sir," I said, "1 am altogether
your mercy. I have done that whi<

But, indeed, I thought you were a

I fancied he spoke less gaily tho

maddest of adventures."
"Sir," I said, "my uncle stands t

. The highwayman chuckled. "Poe

hand, which, it seems, he had bee
holding for some minutes. "Poe

before the night is here again yoi

me," he added, with a pretty conceit
"believe me, thero are many who wil
envy you." *
"But, sir," I interrupted, "you for
get what I have told you. Of late ]
have been closely guarded, for mj
uncle had discovered that I have giver
my love to a yeoman of the place. To
night there was a ball at the house oi
Mme. Trelawney (a great lady, whose
son waa destined by my uncle and bj
her to be my husband), and it was
arranged that he should stop the
coach on our return, and carry me
away with him."
The highwayman laughed loudly.
"And that is why you did not faint or
scream?" he said. "I fell in love
with you because of that, and that is
why I was so flattered at your sugges
tion of an elopement. But-what
will the real lover do? Will he stop
the coach a second time, and find the
bird flown? I warrant he will play
the part execrably. 1 should hardly
be surprised to hear he had let him
! self be captured."
I could uot endure his jesting.
"Sir," I said, "I am in your hands,
and it is' small wonder you find my
plight only laughable. I have made
myself a show for all the country to
i laugh at. Never a peddler, but will
j be selling ballads in ase'nnight about
! this that I have done to-night. Yet I
could believe yon kinder than most.
I entreat that you will help me."
He was sober in a moment.
"Upou my soul!" he said; "the
case is ono to puzzle a very Solomon.
I would do much to help you, but I
am not altogether free to do so as I
would. To bo frank, my life hangs
upou my escaping ont of these regions
with all the celerity I can command,
j And my life * * * But listen!"
He broke off, and, kneeling, placed
his ear to tho ground. Then he arose,
j with a curious, excited laugh. "The
j adventure grows in interest," he said.
"Here come3 the honest yeoman, and
in hot haste."
I listened eagerly, and heard far off
the sound of a horse galloping
furiously along the rough traci-,w rich
was then the only road aero*s the
great moorland. I saw a sudden
movement on tho part ot my com
panion, and perceived that he was
fingering his pistols as he stood silent
in the darkness.
"Not that!" I cried, entreatingly.
"There will be need of au explana
tion of some kind," he said ; "perhaps
you will undertake it. I coufess I
have not a sufficient gift of words,
and I am a little inclined to doubt
whether your sweetheart will be in a
mood for verbal exphnations. Doubt
less, as a gentleman of tho road, he
will ride armed."
The sound of hoofs grew nearer.
Ho was silent now, and listened most
attentively to the approa3hiug sound.
Presently the rider was quite near.
"Dick!" I called. "Dick! all's
well, and I am in tho company o? a
friend of yours and raine."
A moment later he was upon us,
and, sure enough, he held a pistol in
his hand. He jumped from his horse
in an instant and caught. me to hi:n ;
but it was the highwavin?u who spoke
first. " )
"Sir, he said, "I see'ty tue pistol
you carry that you take" a very proper
view of the situation. /And yet I be
lieve that everything may be ex
plained. JJ you will consult the
"Dick," I said, "this gentleman is
a friend. He took me with him, very
mach against his will, because I asked
that he would take me ; and I did that
because I thought that he was you.
You know our plau. He is-"
I paused. The highwayman laughed.
"Farewell!" he cried, and van
ished into the night. Nor did I hear
again of him until he was hanged,
two years afterwards, for a robbery of
the most daring.
At least there was one who wept at
the news of his death-and she a hap
py wife.-Strand Magazine.
A Bit of Advice.
Some years ago, while officiating in
the capacity of office boy in one of
our retail stores, a bit of advice was
given to me that I have never forgot
ten, says a writer in the Great Divide,
The estublishment being a large one,
enough ink was used to necessitate the
purchasing of a dozen pint bottles
every few months. These bottles had
accumulated for a year or more, snd
as there was scarcely room in the
closet for the new lot which had just
arrived, the head of the counting-room
instructed me to take them to the
waste room. I removed the bottles
from the closet, but put them in ono
of the stock rooms in the basement
until lunch time came ; then I took
them to a junk shop iu a small street
near by, and asked the attendant
whether he wanted to buy them.. The
bottles being of a good size and well
made, he offered mo two cents apiece
for them, which netted me seventy
two cents, as I had in all thirty-six
bottles. I returned to the office in
high spirits over my deal, bnt yet a
little doubtful as to whether the money
really .belonged to me, and all the
afternoon 1 pondered over this ques
tion, but could not decide it to my
Now, the cashier had always been a
good friend of mine, so I concluded
to ask him whether I was rightfully
entitled to the money.
"Well," he said, "naturally you
could hava had the bottles had you
j asked for them, but my advice would
bo to turn the money over to the firm,
j as little things of this sort often lead
I one on, and there would seem no more
harm in taking a step further than in
j keeping this eeventy-two cents. "
I turned the money in-very reluct
antly, I must admit-and wished from
the bottom of my heart that I had
never mentioned it to him, though his

Some Big Counties.
Between the Rocky Mountains and
the Atlantic there are a dozen counties
that contain more than 5000 square
miles. One of these is Aroostoek,
the northwestern county of Maine,
which has au area of 6800 square
miles, but little less than that of the
whole of Wales, and forty-two times
the Republic of Andorra. Another is
Dade County, Florida, in which are
the Florida Everglades. This has an

which covers more than 5000 square
miles. St. Louis County contains the
city of Duluth, which has more than
35,000 inhabitants. In Idaho we have
two counties, Idaho and Bingham,
which cover au area of more than 10,

Colorado, has 5250 square miles, a
part of which is made up of the area
covered by the city of Denver. Routt

Great interest is taken in France in
the plan of M. Bazin, an engineer,
who thinks the present form of ocean
ships is an incorrect one. His idea is
taken seriously by some of the most
famous naval men o[ the Republic,
and Admiral Conloinbeaud ha3 written
an article in its praise in La Marino
de France. Bazin's "ship of the fu
ture," as he calls it, consists chiefly
of a great platform, on which cabins
are to be borne, held above water by
huge roller?. These rollers serve as
"floaters,v and as means of locomotion
for the vessel.
Bazin has not contented himself
with a plan on paper, but has actually
constructed a model five nioters long
and experimented with it successfully
on a lake near Paris. The trials were
so encouraging, in fact, that he has
decided to build a "roller ship" twen
ty-five meters in length, eleven and
eight-tenth meters wide, with the
rollers eight meters in diameter.
With this he intends to experiment on
La Manche Canal. The construction
of a great ship 130 meters in length is
The inventor declares that his roller
ehip will be able to make thirty-two
nautical miles an hour, and bolieves
that it will prove a much safer mean?
of ocean travel than thc present form.

THE NAUGHTY LITTLE GIRL,

With a chocolate caramel.

She's the terror of her teaohers

She can whoop like a Comanche,
You can hear her round the square;
Turther-like an Indian she
Often creeps and pulls my hair,
And she steals into my study;
And she turns my books a-whirl;
And her boots are always muddy

She peppers my havana?:
And delights to hear me sn MK).

Spite of every tangled curl,
She's a darling, and I love her,

Weren't thc Mothers Surprised.
Some time ago there was a dance in
a Canadian settlement for the benefit
of the settlers and their wives. Most
of the married ladies had babies with
them, whose noisy perversity required
too much, attention to allow the ladies
the full swing of their soul's pleasure
in the dance. So a number of young
men present gallantly volunteered to
watch over the refractory infants, so
that their mothers could indulge with
out let or hindrance in the sweets of
the "light fantastic" exercise.
The gallant oller was readily and
confidingly accepted, but no sooner
had the women left their dear charges
to the care of those mischievous
young rascals than they commenced
stuffing the infants, changing tho
clothing aud giving one the apparel oE
another, till all were transmogrified.
The dance and the music continued
into the "wee ama' hours," and then
it was time to go home. The lights
were lowered, and each mother
hurriedly took a baby, in tho dress of
her own, and started for home, which,
in many instances, was ten or fitteen
The following morning there was a
prodigious row in the settlement.
Moth?rs discovered what had occurred,
and then commenced sooio of the
tallest female pedestrianism on record.
Living as they did miles apart, it re
quired two full days to unmix the
babies and as many months to restore
the mothers to their naturally sweet
dispositions. Those young men never
venture into that settlement now. It
wouldn't bo safe.-Tit-B ts.

AN ALARMING STATEMENT
HOW BAD HABITS ARE FORMED?
The New York Tribune says: "The habit of
laking ' headache powders ' is increasing to au
ilarmmg extent among a great number of wo*
nen throughout the country. These powders ai ;
heir name indicates, are claimed by the manu
facturers to bc a positive and speedy cure for any
arm of headache. In many cases their cliie'f
ngredient is morphine, opium, cocaine or some"
?thcr equally injurious drug having a tendency
} deaden pain. The habit of taking: them" is
isily formed, but almost impossible to shake.
T. Women usually begin taking them to re
ive a raging headache and soon resort to the
Dwder to alleviate any little pain orache they
tay be subjected to, and finally like the mor
aine or opium fiend, get into thc habit of taking
hem regularly, imagining that they are in pain
f they happen to miS3 their regular doee."
In nine cases out of ten, the trouble'is
in tile stomach and liver. Take a simple
laxative and liver tonic and remove the
offending matter which deranges the
stomach and causes thc headache. Dr:
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are composed
entirely of the purest, concentrated,
