A Remedy No Family
lo matter how healthy a human
Deinff may he it Is safe to say that
not many months are passed without
some obstruction of the bowels, in other
words, constipation, even if only tem
IKrary. The bloating, the dull feeline
may start after the evening meal. If a
laxative is not taken that night it is
certain that sleep will not be sound,
and you will awaken unrefreshed.
Hence, it is important for vou and for
all the members of your familv that a
pod, reliable laxative be always kept
in the house for just such emergency,
it is sure to be needed, and when needed
you want it at hand. No family that is
-careful of its health can do without such
a remedy. But the question of which
jemedy to have on hand Is also of vast

''Five years ago I had the worst case
of chronic constipation 1 ever knew
of, and Chamberlain's Tablets cured
me," writes S. F. Fish, Brooklyn,
Mich. For sale by Paull Drug Co.
Eight of the nine men irapris-
oned in the East Lehigh colliery

sin. It is a liquid laxative-tonic, mild,
and never gripes, is effective on robust
people and can be given with safety to
an infant Children like it because of
these gentle qualities and because it is
pleasant to the taste.

DODGED THE TRAP.

reminiscences the following enjoyable

Wayland, one of my classmates, inher
ited from his father a very keen wit.
The passages between father and son
were often entertaining to the class.
One day, when we were considering a
chapter in the father's textbook on
moral philosophy, Lincoln rose with an
expression of great solemnity and re
spect and said:
"Sir, I would like to propound a
"Well. sir. what is it?" was the re
ply. "Well, sir," said the son. "in the
learned author's work which we are
now perusing I observe the following
remark," and then he quoted.
The class saw that fun was at hand
and began to laugh.
""Well, what of it?" asked the father,
with a merry twinkle in his eye.
"Why," continued the son. "in an
other work of the same learned author,
entitled 'On the Limitation of Human
Responsibility.' I find the following
He quoted again. Clearly the two
passages were irreconcilable. The boys
were delighted to see that the doctor
was in a trap and broke into loud
""Well, what of it?" asked the doctor,
and his eyes twinkled still more mer
rily. "Why," said the son. with the ut
most gravity, "it has occurred to me
that I should like to know how the
learned author reconciles the two state
ments." "Oh," said the father, "that Is sim
ple enough. It only shows that since
he wrote the first book the learned au

BOUGHT HOUSES ON FIRE.
Queer Trade That Enriched Cato and
Crassus In Ancient Rome.
One of the strangest businesses In
ancient Rome is mentioned by Juvenal
in his" "Satires." and we hear of it also
from historians. It consisted of buy
ing houses on lire.
The speculator hurried to the scene
attended by slaves carrying bags of
money and others carrying tools,
judged the chances of salvage and
made a bid to the distracted house
owners, who were glad to accept any
thing as a rule. The bargain struck in
all haste this earliest of fire assurers
set his slaves to work and secured
what lie could. Sometimes even he put
out the flames and so made a coup.
It was a business for capitalists, but
the poorest who speculated in a small
way could hardly lose if he had pres
ence of mind enough to grasp the

Crassu3 laid the foundations of their
svealth. The latter had a passion for
such gambling. He gradual:;.- collected
a force of carpenters, masons and such
artificers slaves, of course which
reached 500 men. Not only did he buy
houses on fire, buc also, enlarging upon
the common practice, lie made a bid
for those adjoining which stood in dan
ger. Eis proposals were commonly
welcome, so hel;!ess were the peoplt
and so great the peril. Cy this means

of the rudest men of his ajre He re
turned home late one evening from his
round of professional calls and found
his wife entertaining a few friends.
Grimly he walked into the center of
the room, stopped and looked around
"I knew nothing of this kick up," he
said, "and I ought to have been in

present company will retire at once.'"
