Mrs. J. F. Daniels, of
Sip, Ky., writes: "I was
so sick for-3 or'4 years,
I had to hire my work
done, most of the time.
I had given up hope. When
I began to take- Cardui, I
knew, right -away, it was
helping me.. Now, I am
better than ever before in
my life, and Cardui did it"

Feats of Archery.
In the day:c when the buffalo was
found in vast herds on the western
.plains there were indians who, while
riding at a gallop, could send an arrow
through a buffalo's body. Remarkable
.as this archery was, yet it did not
equal that reached by the archers of
a'ncient times. It is ol record that the
MacRaes of Gairlock. Scotland, were
such skillful archers that they could
bit a man at the distance of 500 yards.
In 1704 the Turkish ambassador at
London shot an arrow, in a field near
that capital, 415 yards against the
wind and 4S2 yards with the wind.
The secretary -of the ambassador, on
hearing the expressions of 'surprise
from the English gentlemen present.
said the sultan had shot 500 yards.
This was the greatest performance of
modern days. but a pillar, standing
on a plain near Constantinople, record
ed shots ranging up to 800 yards. Sir
Robert Ainslie. British ambassador to
the sublime port, records that in 179S
he was present when the sultan shot
an arrow-972 yards.-New York Press.
Mark Twain's German Coffee.

Mark Twain a pain, judging from the
following recipe which he gave for its
Take a barrel of water and bring it
to a boil; rub a chicory berry against
a coffee berry, then convey the former
into the water. Continue the boiling
and evaporation until the intensity of
the flavor and aroma of the coffee and
chicory have been diminished to a
prpper degree; then set aside to cool.
Now unharness the remains of a once
cow from the plow, insert them in a
hydraulic press, and, when you shall
have acquired a teaspoonful ofr that
pale blue juice which a German super
stition regards as milk, modify the
mnlignity of its strength in a bucket
of tepid water and bring up the break

- cup, partake with moderation, and
keep a wet r'ag around your' head to
guard against over excitement.
In a garden a dog was eating a piece
f meat in the presence of four covet
~ous crows. They evidently said a great
deal to one another on the subject, and
nlow and then one of them tried to pull
~the meat, away from the dog, which
he naturally resented. At last a big.
strong crow succeeded in tearing off a
piece, with which he returned to the
tree where the others congregated. A
long powwow now ensued, which end
ed in all four crows flying down to the
dog, the leading crow dexterously drop
ping the small piece of meat within
reach of his mouth. The dog imnmedi
ately snapped at it, unwisely letting go
the big piece, which was seized by two
crows and carried to the tree, where it
was devop rdygith, nuch .fluttering
and hilarity, while the cheated- dog
~walked away with every appearance
of discomfiture.-St, Louis Globe Dem

Whistler's remarl:able genius is no

tricities. He quarreled indiscriminate

Especially well known is his quar
rel with John Rusl:in. who in his
"Ars Clavigera" had heaped scorn on
one of Whistlers "Nocturnes" in the
following language. "I have seen and
heard much of cockney impudence be
fore now, but never expected to hear
a coxcomb ask 200-guineas for flinging
a pot of paint in the public's face."
The artist promptly sued for damages,
[and in the celebrated trial which fol
