President David Starr Jordan,
of Leland Stanford, Jr, University,
writing in the current number of
the North American Review, quotes
Bismarck as having once eaid:s
"One-third of the students in the
German universities destroy
themselves by dissipation, one
third wetr themselves out by
overwork, and the rest govern Eu
rope." President Jordan parap
hrases in the case of American
college students in this way : One
part go to the dogs, one part to the
grave, and the rest are the strength
of the Republic."
Horses cannot be hiied at any
price in Whitman County,
Washington, where 1,500,000
bushels of grain were harvested
in one week r?ceutly. Tho grain
was valued at $1,050,000, and the
indications were that with good
weather the next week's record
would excel that, but it was almost
impossible to get horses enough to
cart the grain. About Takua, in
the same State, thrashers have
been so scarce that large cash
bonuses have been offered for them.
Sunday's Augusta Chronicle had
the following society note which
will be read with interest by Ex
Gov. Evans's friends in Aiken
County: "The engagment of Ex
Governor John Gary Evans to Miss
Emily Plump, of Connecticut, is
announced. The marriage will be
on Dec. 14 and will be a brilliant
affair. Mi?s Plume was one of Ihe
most popular and admired visitor
iii the city last winter. Cultured
and charming in manner she made
many friends, who will be delighted
to welcome her to the South. Mr
Evans will go in a private car,
carrying a number of friends
among whom many Augustans will
be counted, who will be with him
on ibis eventful occasion." 1
A touching and poetical custom
nrevails in the Welsh-Tyrol. When
i youug raaideu is about to be
narried, immediately before she
steps across the threshold of her
)ld home on her way to the church.
ier mother solemnly gives her a
new pocket handkerchief. The
i>ride holds in her hand throughout
the marriage ceremony, using it
to wipe away her tears. So soon as
the marriage festivities are ended
the young wife lays the hand
kerchief aside iu her linen closet
md there it remains as long as
3he lives. Nothiug could induce
\ Tyrolese wife to UBO this sacred
handkerchief. It may be half a
century, or longer, before it is
taken from its place to fulfil the
3econd and last part of its mission.
When the wife dies, perhaps as a
gray old grandmothp", the loving
hands of the next c. kin place
the bridal handkerchief over the
face of the dead and it is buried
with her in the grave.

ONE 0F_TW0 WAYS.
The bladder was created for one par
p?te, namely, a receptacle for the'
urine, andas euch it ib not liable to
any form of disease except by one of
two ways. The first way ie from im
perfect action of the kidneys. Th?
seoond way is from careless local treat
ment of other diseases.
Unhealthy urine from unhealthy
kidneys ls the ohief cause of bladder
troubles. So the worn ts, like the blad
der, was created for one purpose, and
if not doctored too muon is not liable
to weakness or disease, except in rare
?tases. It is situated back of and very
close to the bladder, therefor* , any
pain, disease or hicontenienoe maui

womb trouble of some sort. The error
