A Mother Tells How She Saved Her Little
I am the mother of eight dhildren
and have had a great deal of exper
ience with medicines. Last summer
my little daughter had the dysentery
in" its worst form. We thought she
would die. I tried everything I could
think of, but nothing seemed to do
her any good. I saw by an adver
tisement in our paper that Chamber
lain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy was highly recommended
and sent and got a bottle at once. It
proved to be one ol the very best
medicines we ever had in the house.
It saved my little daughter's life. 1
am anxious for every mother to know
what an excellent medicine it is.
Had Iknown it at first it would have
savecf me a great deal of anxiety and
my little daughter much suffering.

There are some games which have
never had their boom, and quoits is one
of them. Still, af nothing happens bnt
the unexpected, it may be that the time
is nearly ripe for quoits to be taken out
1 f its undeserved obenrity. to be eialt

h-ive weekly papers named attfr it and

Stranger things have happened. Who,
for ii.-tance. wonld have said when a
tli- end of the ixties a few energetic
puriimii went wobbling about on bono
."hakiiiff bicycles which it wonld have
been far easier to push than to ride
that at the end of tho ceutnry consider
ably more than 100.000 bicycles wonld
be manufactured annually in Great
butain nlone and that a great part
01 the population would adopt this
mean'-of locomotion? One cannot im
agine that quoits will ever attain snch
popularity as the bicycle, but tho un
prejudiced person can see no reason
why it should not liecomo as favorite a
pastime as golf, which a very few years
ago was almost nnheard of sonth of tho
Quoits is a very fine game, especially
in the winter time. It is splendid exer
cise and trains the eye and the hand to
act together in a way that few other
sports can do, for the very essence of it
is accuracy of aim at a mark placed be
low the level of the hand. It lias been
objected that throwing quoits makes
tho player lopsided, but, after all, that
is easily remedied, for there is nothing
to pi event the player throwing the
quoit with his left hand if he so pleases,
and snch a change would make a varia
tion in the game and also afford an ex
cellent method of handicapping the men
of unequal skill. Quoits strengthens the
anus aud shonlders. bnt it is not a ras
time which primarily demands strength.
Agiv.it advantage of the game is that
it can be played in any small space and
tLai the ground need not be particular
ly level. Any rough field or waste bit
of ground is good enough for a quoits
pitch, and no rolling or cutting is re
quired to satisfy the demands of the
most exigent. For cricket you need a
carefully prepared 'wicket, for lawn
tennis and croquet a piece of turf like
a billiard tablo and for golf the best
part of a country all to yourself, but for
quoits you only need a few yards of
rough gronnd, and yon have as good a
place for throwing as any one can pos
sibly require. '
People certainly might play qnoits
more than they do, but the taking up
of a game is -usually a matter of fancy,
and perhaps two things stand in the
way of qnoiK First, there is an idea
that it is a "rustic" sport and can only
be played by the rongh country lads,
ana, second, then' 1 the legend that
the game is derived from the classical
disenn throwing, a snspicion which if
' must lie confessed is enonch to throw a
slur on any we' regnlated game.
No treatise on qnoits can liegin with
ont the time honored pedigree of the
quoit from the discus. Strntt, who lived
I at tho end of the last century, of course
dealt with it. and tqnally of course he
dragged in the dh-ciT even if he did not
invent tho descent of qnoits from the
sport "f ancient Greece. Tho thing, of
conrsr. is alnid To 'make a disens,
' the artisan did not, in the words of tho
immort ;1 Irishman, take a hole and put
; somo iren around it. The discus was
more like a liattcned Butch cheese and
was a solid missile. Moreover, it wa3
, not held in the same manner as a qnoit,
but was bowled underhand, in which
indeed it alone differs from putting the
weight. That qnoits is now played
chiefly in the coumr. is the fanlt of
those who do not play it and brisg it
It is no doubt a very ancient English
game, and its beginnings are lost in the
mist of ages. Hakluyt mentions it in
his book of "Voyages," so it was well
known in Queen Elizabeth's time, when
it probably was one of the favorite
storts of Kerrie England. In some
parts of the country the rnstics used to
employ horseshoes for want of properly
made .qnoits, aud there are districts in
which the quoit is called a "shoe" even
to this day. This gives us the clew to
the most probable origin of the sport
and hints that the first game of qnoits
was started by throwing old horseshoes
at the hob or mark, and from this grad
nally grew up the practice of having
qnoits specially made tor throwing. So
mnch for the discus legend. As for tho
wcrd "qnoit" itself, its etymology is.
more than doubtful, and it gives us no
clew whatever to tho origin of the
Shakespeare, who mentions every
thing except tobacco, of course has a.
reference to tho sport, and as Hakluyt
was a contemporary of his it may be
held to show that tho spacions times of
Great Elizabeth were tho palmy period
of quoits. It is true that lie does not

connection, for the only mention of it
ocenrs in the scene in which Prince
Henry, Falstaff, Poins and the rest
were in the Boar's Head tavern, in
Eastchepe. Falstaff, in giving a char
acter sketch cf the yonug prince, ob
serves that he plays qnoits well, but the
context very clearly shows that -in
Queen Elizabeth's time at any rate
quoit playing was looked down upon as
the idle man's recreation, much as skit
tles is with ns That fat Jack Falstaff,
disreputable old fellow as he was,
meant to imply no good of the prince
by his reference to qnoits is very evi
dent. This is the only reference
quoits in Shakespeare, and it is a lib,
though the sting is taken out of it by
the fact that it is put into the mouli

A local clergyman is telling a joke on
himself. He went to Chicago on busi
ness and was asked by a family in hi
chnrcli to call on a married daughter
there. The pastor called and received a
hospitable welcome. They urged him
to come to dinner, but he had an en
gagement Then they remarked, "Well,
will yon not eat a little luncheon?'
The hostess pointed as she spoke to
email table on which were a small disn
of salad, some bread and fruit. "Well.
I den't care if I do," replied the caller,
who drew up a chair and began an os
eianght on the provisions. He fancied
they had been arranged expressly for
him, and it was only after he had got
throngh that he noticed the blank looks
of the family. In fact, he bad devonred
the entire luncheon which all had ex
pected to eat.
"Madam, what must you think of
me?" he exclaimed to the hostess.
"But let me beg of yon not to judge all
Kentnckians by me. I am the sole
stupid one in our state."
He was equal to the lady whose
hostess showed her a dish of water cress
at a side table just before dinner was
eerved. Thinking it had just been pur
chased, she stuck her hand in the dish
and took a handful of it only to find it
dressed with French salad dressing and
prepared to accompany the birds at tho
meal. Louisville Times.

"Oh. nothin. sorr.' said the lad
"Well, then, why don't you go?"'
