whilo ho was aslcop, the plato bocame

unsuccessful, and various physicians
tackled tho caso to romove tho fo. oign

Baughman suffered indescribablo pain
in conscquouco, and from onco a heavy
weight of nearly two hundred
pounds has fallen to tho rnthor light
weight of ono hundred nnd thirty

and his continual hawking is cnusod by
tho tooth, which havo mado him re?

amination mado by a modical expert in
Chicago showed that his lungs wore
sound, and that his coughing waa
caused by the toith. During tho four

throw his head far ba.-k, as though
gargling his throat, and allow the

In his presout condition ho is wholly
unable to pursue his calling. He is a
man of 42 years and a votornn of the
Forty-first Illinois Volunteers. Ho is
a man of moans, and offers $10,000 to the

as an errand boy on $2 a week, and
saved $200 out of that iucomo with
which to start a grocery store. In that
enterprise, ho says, "I remained ton

a schooner trading with San Domingo,
and afterward took a store ngnin,
cautioning my clerks nlways to givo

Many a mother, startled in the night by
the ominous sounds of Croup, finds tlio
little iuffereri with red nnd swollen face,
gasping for air. In such cases Aycr's
Cherry Pectoral is Invaluable. Mrs. Emma
Qcditey, 16!) West 128 St., New York,
writes: "While in the country, last
winter, my little boy, three years old, was
taken ill with Croup; it seemed ns if ho
would die from strangulation. Aycr's
Cherry Pectoral .was tried in small nnd
frequent doses, and, in less than half an
hour, the little patient was breathing
easily. The doctor said that the rcctoral
saved my darling's life." Mrs. Chns. B.
Landonj Guilford, Conn., writes: "Aycr's
Saved My Life,
nnd also the life of my little son. As ho
is troubled With Croup, I dare not bo
without this remedy in the house." Mrs.
J. Gregg, Lowell, Mass., writes: "My
children havo repeatedly taken Aycr's
Cherry Pectoral for Coughs and Croup.
It gives immediate relief, followed by
cure." Mrs. Mary E. Evnns, Scrnnton,
Pa., writes: "I have two little boys, both
of whom have been, from infancy, subject
to violent attacks of Croup. About six
months ago we began using Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral, nnd it acts like a charm. In a
few minutes after the child takes It, ho
breathes easily and rests well. Every
mother ought to know what n blessing I
have found In Aycr's Cherry rcctoral."
Mrs. Wm. C. Rcid,Freehold,N.J.,writes:
"In our family, Ayer's medicines havo
been blessings for many years. In oases

THE LAST STRAW.
Mrs. Slack was next neighbor to the
Peppers when they bought their cottage
nt Seavicw, und on the very first night
she tumbled over the scattered bits of
furniture in tho passage and appeared in
their midst unexpectedly to borrow a lit?
tle suit. She said it was nice to have
neighbors again, nnd that Mrs. Pepper
looked so sweet sho knew sho wouldn't
At midnight she roused them from their
slumbers to inquire if thoy had nny chol?
era medicine, for little Peter had been
eating too many green apples nnd 6hc
Urn light he would die. She said she was
thankful Airs. Pepper had moved in, nnd
that but for that circumstance she might
have lost her darling. Mrs. Pepper was
thankful, too, and the two women cm
braced with tears. Then Mrs. Slack bor?
rowed some mustard for n plaster.
The next day she sent Peter, fully re?
covered and with bis pockets full of
green fruit, to ask for the ax, the handle
having come off theirs; nlso a rolling-pin.
Fortunately tho Peppers possessed
three axes and two rolling-pins, so they
did not feel disturbed by the fact that
the articles were never returned. Hut
nftcr a short interval filled by loans of
coal, potatoes, bread nnd cheese, Mrs.
Slack came herself to borrow the folding
table, a pair of scissors, the pattern of a
basque, nnd a low rocking-chair. She
was going to make some dresses, nnd if
Mrs. Pepper would step over and fit hcr
sho'd be much obliged.
Mrs. Pepper did it nnd made tho but?
ton-holes, too. Mrs Slack never could
lenrn to make a button-hole. Tho table,
the scissors, the rocking-chair, and the
pattern nil remained at Mrs. Slack's.
The next week Mrs. Slack borrowed a
mantle and a water-proof.
Mrs. Pepper by this timo grew bold
enough to beg that she would send them
home when she returned.
Mrs. Slack said "Of course," with
some offense, but when Peter was next

cles. What he wanted was the baby
carriage and a market basket.
Christmns time enme and with it cards
for a party. The Slacks so hoped they'd
all come nnd enjoy themselves.
Ilaving accepted what was more nntu
ral than to take an interest in the pro?
ceedings?to lend sugar and ice-cream
freezer, butter, nnd the egg-benter, the
cut-glass goblets and the best table-cloths,
the spice-box entire, nnd lots of other
things? Finally Mrs. Slack, with her
gown tucked up aud her eyes sparkling,
ran it to say that they thought a dance
would be nice nnd could Mrs. Pepper
spare the piano for one evening?
"There's nobody to move it," said
Mrs. Pepper, rejoiced to have nn excuse.
"I'm so sorry."
Mrs. Slack laughed nnd went'^o tho
window. Four big laborers appeared
nnd without nny preliminary dirccing
shouldered the instrument nnd lugged it
away, They bumped it against railing,
i and fairly tumbled it down in a plowed

The nppenrancc of her beloved pinno

waltzes and sets for tho lancers most of
the evening,and as the company went in
to supper in relays?old folks first and
young folks last, as Mrs. Black said?sho
found very little left but a cup of coffee
and a turkey-bono whon her duties wore
Hut there is nn end to everything.
One day she saw Mrs. Slack driving up
the road in tho minister's now buggy.
She was wearing tho pretty mantilla she
had borrowed of her. With her usual lit
tlo giggle she stopped nt tho garden gate.
Mr. Pepper had taken a holiday and
was lying in the hammock reading. His
wife had her sewing under tho oak trees
and was extremely happy and comforta?
ble. If Mrs. Sleek had come to ask her
to drive she had resolved not to go. Sho
would say: "My luisband has so fow
holidays I cannot leave homo to-day."
But Mrs. Slack did no such thing.
"You dour, good soul I" sho cried, an
soon as sho was within speaking distance,
"1 came to borrow your husband."
"Borrow ic/iatl" cjacalatcd Mrs. Pop?
"Your husband," said Mrs. Slack,
"Slack's iu New York; I am going to n
a picnic; I want an escort nnd some ouo
to drive. May 1 have him?"
"You ought to nsk Mr. Popper him*1,
self," said Mrs. Pepper, very coldly. ? j
. "I shan't," said Mrs. Slack, playfully,!
"1 enmc to borrow him of you. You'll
lend him, won't you? nnd I shall tell
every ono that dear, good nngcl, Mrs.
Pepper, lent mc her husband."
"You insist I shall answer,Mrs.Slack,"
Mrs. Pepper answered.
"Yes," lisped Mrs. Slack, "you'll lend
him, won't you?"
"No!" said Mrs. Pepper in a very de?
cided tone, "I nm afraid I shouldn't get
him back. I let you havo my piano.
Thnt hasn't been returned. My water?
proof?where is that? My baby's enr
ringc?your baby takes air iu it now.
My cutting-board and scissors, my roll- J
ing-pin, an I nil the rest, I haven't scon.
But I promised to cleave unto my hus?
band till denth does us part". You surely
never would return him!"
"Ohl oh! oh!" screamed Mrs. Slnck,
turning pink. . "You wicked woman!
You mean thing I You shall havo all
your horrid things back. Do you want
your spoonful of salt, too, you mean,
Then, tearing tho mnntilla from her
shoulders, she threw it nt Mr. Pepper's
bend as ho struggled from the hammock
and drove nwny.
She borrowed a shawl from tho clergy?
man's wife nud went to the picnic with
her eldest boy ns escort. j
Before her return Mrs. Popper had
proceeded to her neighbor's houso and
collected her goods and chattels.
Tho piano was out of tune and scratch?
ed ; onions hnd been kept in the icc
crcam freezer, and the mantle had n
grcasc-spot on ono shoulder; tlio child?

There is a saying nmong the Russians
thnt a man who is fond of his horso will
not grow old early. The Arab and the
Cossack are examples of tho truth of the
proverb. They gcnernlly livo long, en?

octogenarian, David Dudley Field, tells
us thnt ho attributes his remarkably vi?
tality to tho hnbit of horseback riding,
nnd if the truth were known, it would
be doubtless appear that our sturdiest
'old men arc those who have been fond of
tho saddle. The taste for equestrian
sports and exercise which has lately made
such progress in Brooklyn is, therefore,
a hopeful nnd healthful sign. It is not
a mere freak of fashion, but a dcvclop

LADIES DE PA HTM EXT.
Ilomlrr tilrl* ninl Ilcautlei.
Public attention of Into has Leen
called a grent deal to what nrc termed
homlcy girls. "Homes nro inado happy
by bomc'.y girls, who nro not much
talked about in society," says one con?
temporary. Well, it is true. There is
something about Jho honest-faced,
homoly girl that comforts nnd assures the
average man. Ho is not afraid of her,
docs not hesitate to ask favors, never
fcols ns if ho is trespassing upon her
time, nnd always knows where he stands.
Hut nit this need not discourage the ac?
knowledged beauty. The Telegraph
makes bold to say that* it has known
some pretty girls who were homo angels,
who labored faithfully under the dis?
advantage of superior charms an.I finally
settled down to become good wives. Let
no girl who is gifted with beauty feel
discouraged.?Macon (On) Telegraph.
The Ulrl or To-llnr.
The girl of to-day is generally profi?
cient in needle-work. She cannot only
alter her own dresses, but cut nnd make
those nnd her underclothing as well.
She has a knack at trimming her hats and
furnishing up her wardrobe, and does
her full share at helping the dressmaker,
who comes to assume o .urge of tho spring
nnd fall sewing. Slit; understands the
various branches of mending, and lakes
that division of labor off her mother's
hands, us well as the care of parlors and
dining-room, tho arranging of flowers,
tho supervision of tho manners and
apparel of the younger children, and
'sometimes pr their studios, tuu.

phrase. It is not fair to take the weak?

bilities and burdens, and a steady pur?

A Noddy Her-IIlv?.
There is always the hostess with her
daughter nt the top of the stairs, sur?
rounded by a crowil who havo bowed or
shaken hands with that lady, and who
afterward appear ns if they were trying to
hide themselves from her and her oil
spring as fast us possible, says a writer in
Harper'* ATafpulne, describing a crowded
fashionable bull in London. The musi?
cians are blockaded in ono corner, and
round the doors the black-coated young
men cluster like bees in swarming time.
Mothers anil daughters are ranged two
or three deep round the walls, tho more
fortunate of the former silting, but
many on foot. In the middle of the
room, reduced to an irregular space of
about ten feet by six, struggling couples
beat one against another. On their faces
are expressed various emotions?high
spirits nnd depression, malice and good
humor, pleasure and pain.
Tho floor oscillates; wax candles
sprinkle their substance liberally about;
hot young men open windows nnd chilly
dowagers shut them. Now and then a
black coat detaches itself from the mass
near the door, and with a patronizing air
selects n partner, or makes a few gracious
observations to a chnperone.
Everything is sound nnd tumult, the
only approach to repose being on the
back stair, where two or three couples
sit in a blissful slate watching other
couples wedge their way to tho tea-room
through opposing masses who press back
to the dancing. In the tea-room is a still
denser throng, above which arms are
raised waving ten-cups, glasses of lemon
ado, ices and other light refreshments.
Thcrc evidently is one kind of business
for which women seem to be well fitted,
judging from the number engaged in it,
and that, says tho JVcie York World, is
telegraphy. Strolling about the city and
dropping into almost any telegraph ollicc
from Harlem to tho Battery there may be
seen tho female operator, and, us a gen?
eral thing, she will be seen to be young
and pretty nnd wideawake to her busi?
ness. She will sometimes have about
her a number of subordinates of the op?
posite sex in tho form of callpw youths
and moisengcr boys, over whom she
queens it with a right royal will and an
nir of authority that is charming to be?
hold. Generally these young women nrc
very pleasant and obliging; only occasion?
ally will one come across a terror, whose
very look will freeze him to the marrow.
However they all seem to give satisfac?
tion to their employers and to attend
well to their work, and appear to be
rapidly monopolizing the telegraphic
business. Fur out on the western plains,
wherever there is a road station, nlmost
invariably the traveller sees a pretty Incc
or muslin curtain at tho window, a bird
cage hanging up nloft, and some flower?
ing plants on the narrow sill, or a vine
trained up over the red door (these sta?
tions all along the line of the road nrc
painted a dull, dark red), and other
signs of the feminine presence, nnd if he
looks out ns the train stops be will be
nearly sure to sec a bright, neatly-dressed
wbitc-aproncd young woman come to the
door and stand gazing out nt the. train
and watching the passengers, with a lialf

I see a lot of people on the street who
are nut of kilter internally, says u writer
in The lioxton Globe. What they need
is nrtiflcitll tlid. They arc too lazy to
walk, but Irontmcnt, especially for thu
skin, is necessary, and though it may
seem severe, this is highly recommended:
A tablcspoonful of sulphur taken every

for three mornings, nnd then taken iignin,
will clear the complexion, but will prob?
ably make the black specks- that botllt'I

thoro is a little ammonia. This is not
'Commended for women who are slenderly

Fair Morning In tlio Harbor*
Fair morning Is on tho harbor,
And morning on tho bay,
And the boats that wore lying at anchor
Now .silently steal away.
No wind in tho sails to liear thorn
They drift with tlio tldo afar,
Till i boy enter tho outer harbor
And silently cross tho bar.
It may be tho sklppor is sleeping,
Ho sits at III" nuitloraSO ii' ill;
It may be tho skipper Is thinking;
Of his yo\mg wife on the hllL
She wastes no moment in sighing;
With day hor labors begin,
Wide open sho llingsthe shutters
To lot tho still Himshino in.
Bho panaes only an instant
To look at the stod-gray dew,
Prom licit to the rosobusll glances,
Where it sparkles fresh and now.
And down the slopa lo the harbor,
And over the harbor afar;
For her dear little heart with tho skippor
Is just now crossing the bar.
"God bluss'liorl' tho skipper Is saying,
"t)<*l bless him!" Iho wlfo returns,
Thus each for tho other is pray ms,
While each fur the other yearns.

There are six distinct families?f horse*

These are the horses for swiftness and

straight limbs, flashing eyes mid nstroiig,
flowing mane and tail. They arc nol
