A WORD ABOUT CORSETS.
The president of the Dressmakerse Protective Association frankly said
at a recent meeting, "A woman may be dressed with the severest simplic
ity, with the slightest expense, and yet be stylishly gowned if she wears
the correct corset." It is interesting to note that the correct corset. used to
demonstrate the new styles at this same meeting was the
0. B. a la Spirite.
The highest type of the American Corset Makers' Art. The C. B. a Spirite
Corsets are made in a large range of styles, adapted to the varied require
ments of different figures, and affording the opportuniry for satisfying in
dividual taste. The new straight front has won unqualified approval and
gts to advantage both those of slender build and those inclined toward em
bonnoint. It adds rounded contour to the former, reduces the p'-oportions
of thie latter, and with any figure gives the advantages of be;Lary and hy
gienic arrangement by lengthening the waist. line in front and establishing
a correct poise of body.
We sell C. B. a la Corsets, and guarantee them.

Runtern Say That the Big Animals
Display Little Cleverness.
The process of elephant catching In
India, as well as in Siam, tends to
rather undermine one's settled notions
of elephant sagacity and to create in
stead the feeling tha: .. lot of sent
mental tommyrot an m:isleading, Ig
norantly conceived animal stories have
been put forth about my lord the ele
phant The literal truth Is that the
elephant, for all its reputed intelli
gence, is driven into places that no
other wild animal could possibly be
induced to enter, is in its native jungle
held captive within a circle '.hrough
which it could pass without an effort
and bullied into uncomplaining obedi
ence by a force the smallest fraction of
its own numbers. Part of this is no
doubt due to its exceedingly suspicious
nature; the other part to its lack of orig
Inality, to which latter defect, however,
its notable amenability to discipline is
attribultable. Apropos of amenability.

Worst of all Experiences.
Can anything be worse than to feel
that every minute will be your last*?
Such was the experience of Mrs. S. H.
Newson. Decatur, Ala. '-For three
ears" she writes, "I endured insuffer
Ible pain from indigestion, stomach
and bowel trouble. Death seemed in
evitable when doctors and all remzedies
failed. At length I was induced to try
Electric Bitters and the result was
miraculous. I improved at once and

Could Distinguish Tread of a Flea.
The quickness which some persons
possess in distinguishing the smaller
sounds is very remarkable. A friend
of the writer has declared he could
readily perceive the motion of- a flea,
when on his nightcap, by the sound
emitted by the machinery of his leap
However extraordinary this may ap
pear, we find a similar statement 1s
given in the ingenious work upon in
sects by Kirby and Spence, who say, "I
know of no other insect the tread of
which is accompanied by sound, ex
cept indeed the flea whose steps a wo
man assured me she always hears
when it passes over her nightcap, and
that it clacks as if it were walking in
pattens!" If we can suppose the ear
to be alive to such delicate vibrations,
certainly there is nothing in the way
of sound too difficult for it to achieve.
Cats and dogs can hear the move
ments of their prey at incredible dis
tances, and that even in the midst of
noise which we would have thought
would have overpowered such effects.
Rabbits, when alarmed, forcibly strike
the earth with their feet, by the vibra

"DeWitt's is the only genuine Witoh
azel Salve" writes J1. L. Tucker, of
Centre Ala. "I have used it in my fam
ily for piles, cuts and burns for years
and recommend it to be the best Salve
on the market. Every family should
keep-it, as it is an invaluable house
hold remedy, and should always be
kept on hand for immediate use." Mrs.
Samuel Gage, of North Bnsh, N. Y.,
ays: "I had a fever sore on my ankle
for twelve years that the doctors could
not cure. All salves and blood remedies
proved worthless. I could not walk for
over two years. Finally I was pers'uaded
to try DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve,
which has completely cured me. It is
a wonderful relief." DeWitt's Witch
