A nervous, irritable mother, often on the verge of hysterics, is.
unfit to care for children; it ruins a child's disposition and reacts,
.upon herself. The trouble between children and their mothers
too -often is due to the fact that the mother has some female
weakness, and she is entirely unfit to bear the strain upon her nerves
that governing- a child involves; it is impossible for hur io do anything
calmly. She cannot help it, as her condition is due to suffering and
shattered nerves caused by some derangement of the uterine system
with backache, headache, and all kinds of pain, and she is on the verge
of .nervous prostration.
When a mother finds that she cannot bc calm and quiet with her
children, she maybe sure that her condition needs attention, and she can
not do-tetter than to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
Tips JKedieino will build up her system, strengthen her nerves, and
enable her to calmly handle a disobedient child without a scene. The
children will soon realize the difference, and seeing- their mother quiet,
will-themselves become quiet.

HOME OF SMUGGLERS.
THE ISLANDS, ST. PIERRE AND
MIQUELON, THEIR PARADISE.
An Organization Which Continually l>e
feat? tho Revenue LAwf of the United
Slates, Can.ubi and Newfoundland, and
Makes fortunes for Its Members.
Quite recently a Canadian revenue
cruiser chased a suspicious-looking
schooner along the Cape Breton shore
and next morning the whole coast was
found to be strewn with casks of in
toxicating liquors, writes the St. John's
(N. F.) correspondent of the Chicago
News. There had come from the
schooner, which was a St. Pierre smug
gler and was making for a landing
place when chased by thc cruiser, so
to escape conviction she threw the
contraband cargo overboard.
In this incident is embodied, as it
were, one of the most serious phases
ot the famous "French shore question."
! The islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon
j constitute thc greatest smuggling cen
tre in the world today. The organiza
tion to defeat the revenue laws of thc
United States, Canada and Newfound
land is perfect and far-reaching. Nom
inally, St. Pierre is the headquarters
or shelter port for the 10,000 fishermen
who come across from France each
year to trawl for codfish on the Gran-1
Banks; but really"it is the great dis
tributing point for hundreds of thou
sands of dollars' worth of valuable
commodities which are- illicitly intro
duced into the neighboring countries
by way of all tue seaports between
New York and Quebec. Opium, .fine
perfumes, costly wines and liquors,
French silks and similar goods are
smuggled into New, England by the
United States fishing vessels which
touch at St. Pierre on their way home
from the fishing' banks.
Cheap brandies and light wines are
carried up the St. Lawrence and dis
tributed among all the French-Cana
dian villages on the coast line of Que
bec province. Tobacco, sugar, liquors
and fishing gear are traded with the
Newfoundland fishermen for bait or
for help in handling the cod, and the
extent of the illegitimate traffic with
thc English-speaking countries is enor
mous. There arc merchants in St.
Pierre, reputed fishery outfitters, who
are millionaires, but they have made
their fortunes out of smuggling and
Dot by their recognized pursuit. The
fishery from St. Pierre does not pay
of itself nowadays; it is the smuggling
which gives the trader his profits.
St. Pierre stands for the whole group
-Miquelon, Langley and the other is
lets. Thc town which fronts the only
harbor, holds "90 percent of the total
population. Four hundred craft of
different rigs hail from It, ostensibly
fishing vessels. Probably 80 are smug
glers. St. Pierre is the haven for
which every defaulter in North Amer
ica makes. The laws are lax and no
body ./orries over a black sheep mon
or less. Agents of other powers are
not encouraged there. The French
government will not permit a British
consul on the islet; an agent of the
Newfoundland administration was
liunted out cf the place at the risk of
his life; .Canada is unable to secure
recognition for.a commercial agent; a
former American consular aid became
a ring-leader tin the smuggling scan
dals and used his official papers and
seals to assist, in perpetrating huge
frauds upon his own government. A
man with any fine sense of business
honor is distinctly not wanted among
the contrabands of St. Pierre.
Until a few years SL;O there wa?> a
regular "smuggling syndicate" operat
ing between St. John's and St. Pierre.
It had members in fie Miquelon as-,
sembly and in the Newfoundland leg
islature. Its forte was smuggling "St.
Peter's rum" and plug tobacco into
our island. The saloon keepers at St.
John's were so plentifully stocked with
this liquor that legitimate imports al
most ceased. Strange tobacco was
vended in every hamlet and nobody
knew how it. got there. One of the
most thriving sections of the New
foundland coast, with 10,000 prosper
ous residents, did not pay enough rev
enues to meet the cost of the customs
staff maintained there.
Eventually suspicion became a cer
tainty, the authorities organized a cru
sade and most momentous happenings
ensued. The whole scandal was ex
posed in the courts, and the veneer
of respectability was torn from many
a participator in these dishonest prac
tices. Consternation reigned among
the offenders and several had to fly
the country. The back of the syndi
cate was broken and it was com
pelled to abandon organized opera
tions in Newfoundland.
It continues, however, to maintain
a most effective traffic with Canada
and the United States. Newfound
land enjoys the advantage that St.
Pierre lies only 10 miles off its south
ern coast and its revenue cruisers
can wait in the offing and watch every
vessel that enters or leaves; but nei
ther Canada nor the United States is
so favored and to cope with the smug
gling is therefore more difficult for
them. The smuggler chiefs at St.
Pierre purchase worthless old schoon
ers ?or the St. Lawrence trade. These
are loaded with liquors, with a sprink
ling of codfish on top. Each vessel
has two suits of sails, of a mixed kind,
by means of which the watchful Cana
dian cruisers are deceived. The
schooner may today, on leaving St.
Pierre, show two masts with white
sails. Tomorrow, in the Guli of St.
Lawrence, she may display a black
and a brown sail. A day later, off the
Gaspe coast, her whole spread of can
vas may be altered again.
The cargoes are "run" in the little
villages along the Quebec coast, and
where one craft is caught six escape.
If fortune falls, the vessel is too poor
to fetch much when sold after confis
cation, and an agent of the' syndicate
buys her in again. The 'immense pro
fit on the cargoes compensate for an
occasional loss. The spirit which
forms the base of concoctions sold to
the Quebeckers can be bought in St.
Pierre for 60 cents a gallon. It is doc
tored with fusel oil, noxious drugs,
coloring matter and rain water (the
best dilutant), and is sold for $3.50 a
gallon to those for whom it is destined.
It is vile stuff, bot it maddens the vol
atile French-Canadians and they like
it. Canada's revenue loses about $250,
000 a year in consequence.
For Nova Scotia, New Brunswick
and New England thc proceedings are
not so barefaced. Some sort of secrecy
is observed. False bulkheads and se
cret compartments are provided in the
smuggling craft, and these are
crammed with more costly commodi
ties than go up the St. Lawrence.
When a customs detective in any At
lantic seaport suspects a Pierrois craft
he goes through her from truck to
keelson, prying into fish casks, boring
through bulkheads, removing her in
ner skin and overturning things gen
erally, and not often is he disappoint
The United States government waj
I defrauded by an ingenious and^<$?>
'plicated swindle a few^^?^rago. The
.syndicate bought-large stocks of corn
.spirit (a fiery intoxicant) in Illinois,
had ft railed to Boston and there load
I ed in bond on vessels for St. Pierre.
These vessels on nearing Miquelon
. were awaited by a tug containing a
'dishonest United State? consular offl
?cial in league with the smugglers. He
. would give the captain of the laden
?vessel fraudulent certificates that the
cargo was unloaded, in St. Pierre.
?Then it would be transferred to wait
ing smuggling craft to be carried di
rectly up the St. Lawrence, never ap
proaching St. Pierre.
The United States government was
thus made a party to a big swindle
i and the Pierrois government was also
defrauded of its duties on thc import,
I the smugglers c ircumventing all con
?cerned. However, tho fraud v/as too
[palpable to bc continued indefinitely
'and the exposure which came in time
?was followed by a general exodus of
?those concerned in it. Tho United
States government, to prove an unas
sailable case, had a detective accom
pany one shipment of this stuff from
its starting point to Miquelon. He
serveu as brakeman on the train and
a deckhand on the schooner, and he
saw the casks transhipped to the
smugglers' craft, after which he ex?
posed the whole transaction.
COAL, COAL, COAL.
A Few Kntcrlninlns Fact" /.b:>ut tin
Coal seems to have been entirely un
known to the ancients. None of the
writers of antiquity makes any refer
ence to such a fuel.
The half-savage Britons, however,
seem to have known of thc rich coal
deposits of their isle, and to have
made some slight usc of thc fuel, be
fore the invasion of Julius Caesar and
his Roman legions.
England was undoubtedly the first
European country in which coal was
.used to any considerable extent, and
it had become an article of household
consumption during the Anglo-Saxon
period as early as 850 A. D.
About thc end of tho 13th century
it began to bc employed in London, but
at first only in the arts and manufac
tures; and the innovation was com
plained of o.s injurious to human
health. In 1315 therefore parliament
petitioned the King, Edward IL, to
iprohibit thc use of coal, and a procla
mation was accordingly issued against
it; but owing to the high price of wood
its use soon became general in London.
"Here sit I, an Englishman, by a sea
coal fire," Docton Johnson was heard
to murmur by James Boswell after
their famous "Journey to the Hebri
des.1' Thc term sea coal which has
been a long standing puzzle to Ameri
cans, arose from the fact 'hat it was
once wholly, and is still largely, car
ried by sea. Graphic descriptions of
'these grimy coasting colliers may be
found in W. Clark Russell's nautical
The first discovery of coal in Amer
ica was made by a missionary priest
called Father Hennepin, near what is
now Ottawa, 111., while all the western
territory was still nominally in the
possession of France. Nothing came
of the discovery, however, nor were
mining operations begun until 1813,
when five boatloads of flinty coal were
floated down the Lehigh and Schuyl
kill rivers anld in Philadelphia for ?iT
per ton, the war between Great Britain
and the United States having put an
'.end to the importation of Liverpool
The fuel of the earlier years of the
'republic had been almost entirely of
wood, English "sea coal" being a rare
luxury known only to tho wealthier
(?lassos. Thc usc of "soa coal" contin
ued to be a sort of fad among conserv
ative Americans, and as late as 1821 it
was still in extensive u?", though reg
ular shipments from thc Pennsylvania
mines had begun thc previous year.
In 1820 thc total coal product of
Pennsylvania was only 2000 tons, while
.22,122 tons of Liverpool coat were im
ported into tho United States. Indeed
. American literature of the first quar
ter of the nineteenth century seems
to show that wood was still almost the
only fuel known to the great mass of
the people. In works of fiction, and
those describing the rocial customs
and habits of thc people, references to
;coal fires only occur in what are in
tended to be pictures of "high life."
Charles Dickens has given many
graphic pictures of the manner in
which the poor of London husband
their scanty stock of coal by filling the
grate with bricks, leaving only a small,
space in the centre for the much-prized
fuel. Thc comparatively high price of
coal in connon arises trorn a local tax,
which was first imposed after the great
fire in l??7, in order to enable the cor
poration to repair thc ravages it had
committed; and it has since been con
tinued, with true British persistency,
as a fund for civic improvements. But,
as a well-known political economist
has pertinently remarked, no improve
ment, in the eyes ol' the poor at least,
could equal a reduction in the price of

The housekeeper who is without
help is especially in need of rest and
recreation, says a writer in Good
Housekeeping. She should set apart
an afternoon, preferably in the middle
of the week, and cn the same day each
week, for if not definitely fixed it. will
too often be postponed. This leisure
time should be spent in rest and rec
reation, duty for the moment laid aside.
Of course when possible theoC after
noons should be literally "out" in thc
fresh air and sunshine. On stormy
days, or when she is very tired, a long
nap or au interesting novel may re
fresh or amuse the weary worker. A

TVall-rnper anti Ventilation.
In a recent number tho Builder
draws'attention to the influence of wall
papers on thc ventilation of rooms.
With doors and windows closed the at
mospheric contents of an unpapered
room undergo change at the rate of
1-25 of the whole per hour for each de
gree of difference between the inside
and the outside temperatures. Sup
posing the external air to be at 35 de
grees Fahrenheit and the inter
nal air to bc at GO degrees,
a complete ' renewal would lake
place in an hour by means of transpira
tion alone. When rooms are papered,
however, the rate of diffusion is much
slower, not exceeding one-eighth of
thc whole per degree per hour. Should
the paper be varnished the rate fal Ja
still lower, while cemented and painted
walls are almost impermeable. As very
little provision is designedly made for
ventilation in ordinary dwelling houses,
and especially at low rentals, the sub
ject is one well worthy of considera
tion by architects ?.nd builders. Thanks
to the jerry-builder, with his green
wood fittings, thc wholesome outside
air can make its way into many a
dwelling house that otherwise would
bc uninhabitable, but ventilation
through cracks and fissures is, of
rourse, objectionable, as it gives rise
to draughts. The employment of rea
sonably porous building material

PLAN TO WAX THE SPHINX?
Hcpe to Save the Egyptian M (nu ment
From the Desert Sand Stoims.
A plan for saving the sphinx from
further injury by the elements has
been suggested by Edward M. Caffall,
an expert on stone preservation, whose
father, Robert May Caffall, applied
waterproofing material to the obelisk
in Central Park* nearly twenty-years
ago. At a cost of about ?S,000, he
thinks, thc great figure in the Egyptian
sand can be protected for an indefinite
time for the wear and tear of the sand
storms and the rains.
That the sphinx is crumbling more
rapidly than it did in previous centur
ies seems to be admitted. For instance
D. G. Longworth, writing in a paper
called the Cairo Sphinx, recently point
ed out the reason for this more rapid
decay. The irrigation of Egypt has de
cidedly changed the climate in the last
few decades. Instead of being con
stantly dry, the sphinx now becomes
rain-soaked for from fifteen to eight
een days of each year. The wind
from the desert, "khamasseen," carry
int the sand before It, beats upon thc
soft limestone of thc sphinx whil it is
?vet, and eats it away exactly as does
the sand blast used in manufactures.
When thc sand blast is used for
Dtching on glass, the parts which are
aot to bc affected are covered with
paraffin. Mr. Caffall believes, there
fore that if the surface of tho sphinx
were treated with paraffin, it would
much better withstand the sand storms
and the rains. Experimentally he
has found that under a "rubbing-bed"
the stone so treated wears away only
ono quarter as fast, as the natural
The experience in treating the obel
isk hore has shown just the methods
that would be necessary on the sphinx.
Experiments which were made then at
the city's expense snowed that the
stone can bc heated to tho melting
point of the wax, as far below the sur
face as twenty inches. The wax be
ing applied with a brush, the hot stone
absorbs it, filling up-thc "pores com
pletely and excluding moisture.
Tho obelisk when treated in 1885,
had so disintegrated from the frosts
that 7S0 pounds of flakes and
chips were removed when it was
being waterproofed. In some cases
flakes of eighteen inches in diameter
and four inches thick had become de
tached. In order to fill up whatever
cracks might exist beneath the surface
a triangular tank was used and the
melted paraffin forced against the face
of tho stone by hydraulic pressure,
thus entering all the interstices, and
sealing thc partly detached fragments
in their places. This same method
would probably have to be used on
the sphinx. Altogether the operation
would probably take about two

man will look into the practicability

small cost. This is no fancy picture,
for a correspondent has witnessed the

For twenty yours I had been a suf
ferer from bronchial troubles ac
companied with a hacking cough.
I.at times suffered from extreme
nervous prostration. About four
years ago I began taking Itipans
Tabules, and since then I have used
them pretty constantly. I rarely
retire at night without taking my
Tabule, and I find they keep my di
gestive organs (which naturally are
weak) in good order, and.they also
allay any tendency to nervousness
and make me sleep. ., , ,
