Ayerts Aful Tragedy.
Timne advice given 'Mrs. C. Wil
loughby: of Marengo, Wis., (R. Io. I)
prevented a dreadful tragedy and saved
two lives. Doctors had said her fright
ful cough was a "consumption" cough
and could do little to help her. After
many remedies failed, her aunt urged
her to take Dr. Kinsis New Discovery.
"I have been using it for some time.I
she wrote. "and the awful cough has
almost gone. It also saved my little boy
when taken with a severe bronchial!
trouble." This matchless medicine has
no equal for throat and lungz troubles.

The American Born Princess.
My father. Prince Napoleon Lucieu
Charles, was in exile in the United
States, and so it happened that I was!
born in America on the borders of the
Delaware. I came into the world with
the last sigh of the old year-that is to
say, at midnight on the 31st of Decem
ber, 1833. I have said that my father
was in exile. When he was eleven
years old his mother left Naples with:
her four children-two boys and twol
girls-and retired to the Chateau de
Frolisderff. taking the title of Comtesse
de Lipona-Napoli transposed. Tliere
my father lived till he was joined by
his incle. the Emperor Napoleon's eld
est brother. King Joseph of Spain, who
on the fall of the first empire had re
tired to the United States and taken a
lovely place near Bordentown, N. T.,
where he lived for eleven years as
Count do Survilliers. It was at Bor
dentown that I entered this sorry!
world, my father having in 1S31 mar
ried a Miss Carolina Georgina Fraser
of Scotch origin, descending from the
old family of Lovat.-Princess Caroline
A Shock to Vanity.
"My wife gave me a birthday pres
ent that has a tendency to take the
conceit out of any man who thinks he's
good looking," said the man who
shares himself. "I confess that I have
all along had a sort of sneaking idea
that I had a little more than my share
of manly beauty; that when It came
to a showdown I was there with, the
goods. But not any more. I'm cured.
And my wife's present did it. What
was it? Why, simply one of those
shaving glasses that magnify three
times. The first time I used it I got a
view of my face that rather startled
I me. Every blemish, every wild hair
under the skin, every open pore, all the
minute ugliness that isn't apparent to
the naked eye-these things confronted
me in all their magnified repulsiveness.
I used the glass just once and then ac
cidentally dropped it down the air
shaft to the basement below. I don't
want to look like a monstrosity every
time I shave myself."-New York

of such a cherub! Do you actually

of those celestial realms? Do you

A Cow For a Life.
The Ober Gabelhorn is a peak no
torious for the dangerous cornices
which decorate its upper ridges. Of
ma ny accidents reported in connection
with it perhaps the most remarkable,
says G. D. Abraham in "Swiss Moun
tain Climbs," was the adventure which
befell an amateur and his young guide.
In passing along the dangerous final
cornice It suddenly gave way under
the amateur, and he went flying
through space to apparent destruction.
The guide at the other end of the rope
seemed in hopeless plight, but with
astounding presence of mind he flung
himself down the opposite side of the
ridge, thus saving two lives. The rope
cut deep into the snow above, but held
flrm. The young guide's name was
Ulich Almer-. His reward was a cow.
His Choice of Weapons.
In "A Century of English Ballads,"
a book by Harold Simpson, there is a
delightful story of Stephen Incledon,
an eminent tenor of other days, whose
singing of "Black Eyed Susan" was
peculiarly to the peoplie's taste. While
staying at a country inn ineledon had
quarreled during the evening with an
army officer-. Hie inmagine-d he had
closed the controversy by going oir to
bed, but the otlicer. left downstairs
to brood over his wrongs. thought oth
erwise. Making his way to Incledon's
bedroomn, he found the singer- fast
asleep. When he succeeded in wvak
lug him,. a matter of some ditliculty.
the otficer demanded satisfactionu.
"Satisfa ctiour' murmurted l ucledon
sleepily. '-Well, you shall have it."
Whereupon he sat up in bed and sang
"Black Eyed Susan" in his best st'de.
"'There," he said, lying dowA. again.
"my singing of that song has given
satisfaction to thousands, and It will
have to satisfy you." And he turned
over and went to sleep again.
West Point Traditions.
"It is an interesting fact, often re
ferred to at alumni reunions and in
addresses delivered to the cadets at
West Point," said a retired army 0th
cer, "that one of the most distin
guished of the graduates of the acad

bootblack on the streets of New York
and was plying his trade when he no

for the district in which he lived, and
he applied for it.

The Kind You Have Always Bought
Thingo Are Chahged Now.
The Foiirth of July, the day of our
arrival at Albany, ras the anniversary
of the Declaration of Independence;
and on our arrival we were told that
great preparations were making for Its
Our landlord, as soon as he foun
out who we were, immediately came
to us to request that we would excuss
the confused state in which his house
was, as this was the anniversary day
of "American independence," or, as
some indeed more properly call it,
"American repentance." We were all
of us not a little surprised at this ad
dress, and from such a person. In
stances, however, are not wanting of
people openly declaring that they have
never enjoyed so much nulet and hap
piness in their own homes since the
Revolution as they did when the states
were the colonies of Great Britain.
Among the planters of Virginia I have
heard language of this sort more than
once.-From "Travels Through the
States of North America," by Isaac
Weld, Jr., 1795.
A Wedding Hoax.
There have been many foolish hoaxes
since the days of Theodore Hook, but
few so cruel as one mentioned by
Bram Stoker in his book, "Famous
Impostors." "A young couple were
about to be married in Birmingham
when those officiating were startled by
the delivery of a telegram from Lon
don with the message: 'Stop marriage
at once. His wife and children have
arrived in London and will come on
to Birmingham.' The bride fainted,
and the bridegroom was frantically
perturbed at thus summarily being
provided with a wife and family. But
it was useless-the unhappy man had
to make the best of his way through
an exasperated crowd, full of sympa
thy for the wronged girl. Inquiry,
however, showed her friends that the
whole thing was a hoax-possibly
worked by some revengeful rlVal of
the man whose happiness had been so
Found the Word.
The late Thomas Lowry of Minne
apolis was a great wit and a great
story teller as well as a great finan
cier. He needed $1,00D,000 one time
for one of his railroad enterprises, and
he went to New York to get it On the
morning of his arrival a friend met
him at the hotel and asked, "What are
you doing, Tom?"
"I am going downtown to get $1,000,
"Can you do it?"
"My boy," said Lowry impressively,
"In the bright lexicon of youth there
Is no such word as fail."
That night Lowry came back to his
hotel after a. hard day. The same
friend met him. "Did you get the mil
lion?" he asked.
"No," replied Lowry, "I didn't. I
opened that bright lexicon of youth,
and the word was in it."-Phladelpha

Anecdotes of Richter.
Dr. Richter will forgive us, we are

he could, then turned to her, "Madam"!

player made another mistake. "No, no

magnitude or a jimon.
In some public schools where large4
halls are available an effort bas been ~
made to realize the meaing of a mil
lion. They secure 100 large sheets of
paper, each about four feet six inches 4
square, ruled in quarter inch squares. 4
In each alternate square a round
black wafer or circle is placed, a little
overlapping the square, thus leaving4
an equal amount of white space be- 4
tween the black spots. At each tenth
spot a double width Is left so as to
separate each hundred spots, ten by4
ten. Each sheet then holds 10,0004
spots, each horizontal or vertical row
containing 1,000. One hundred such
sheets contain, of course, a million4
spots, and they would occupy a space 4
450 feet long In one row or ninety
feet long in. flve rows, so that they
would entirely cover the walls of a
room about thirty feet square and 4
twenty-five feet high from floor to4
ceiling, allowing space for doors, but
not for windows. The Bible from
