When it. was stated a. few weeks
since in the newspapers that the
building of a milk pipe line from a
point in New York State to New York
City was projected there was a rath
er general smile, and the matter was
treated as a joke. The projectors
were, however, it seems, in sober
earnest. A company with a capita
of $500,000 has, it is announced, been
formed at Mjddleton, N. Y., for the
purpose of constructing' nuch a line.
The proposed method of for
warding the milk is in cylndrical
tin cans surrounded and propelled by
water, and the pro-moters of
the scheme assert ' that the
time of transportation for a distance
of 100 miles will not exceed an hour,
while the profit will be about one
cent a gallon. Fire and Water thinks

not be surprised ere long to find New

may well feel cheerful at the prospect

Our Educational System.
Perhaps tho most serious defect of
the system of liberal education now
prevalent in this country is its lack of
a truly progressive character. It
full of fits and starts. It is too dis
jointed and fragmentary. This is partly
because there are no settled principles
of procedure, hxinr the order and
amounts of tho studies; and partly bo-
cause there is no power which can se
cure .teachers that know precisely
what they are expected, fitted, and
permitted to teach. The consequence
is that the different years of school
life too much resemble the different
successive sessions of the Legislature,
Milton somewhere d3scrib3s the proc
ess of legislation as "hatching a lio
with the heat of jurisdiction." Fortu
nately, the process also consists in
killing tho brood of lies already
hatched by previous legislation. Now
the process of education in this coun
try is by no means so oaa in this re
gard as the process of legislation; but
in certain respects the former too
much resembles the " latter. Prof,

To the Grral South American Medicine Co. :
Dear Cents: I desire to say to you that I
have suffered for many years with a very seri
ous disease of the stomach arid nerves. I tried
every medicine I could hear of but nothirjg
done mc any appreciable good until I was ad?
vised to try your Great South American Nervine
Tonic and Stomach and Liver Cure, and since
using several bottles of it I must say that I am
surprised at its wonderful powers to ciue the
stomach and general nervous system. If every
one knew the value of this remedy as I do, you
would not bo able to supply the demand.

Mr. Solomon Bond, & member of tho Society
of Friends, of DarliuRton, Ind., 6ays: "I have
used twelve bottles of The Great .South Ameri
can Nervine Tonic and Stomach and Liver Cure
and I consider that every bottle did for me one
hundred dollars worth of good, because I hava
cot had a good night's Bleep for twenty years
on account of irritation, pain, horrible dreams,
and general nervous prostration, which has
been caused by chronic indigestion and dys
pepsia of the stomach and by a broken down
condition of my nervous system. But now I can
lie down and sleep all n igh t as sweetly as a baby,
and I feel like a sound man. I do not think
there has ever been a medicine introduced into
this country which will at all compare with
this Ni rviae Touioosa euro for the stomach."

My daughter, twelve years old, had been af
flicted for several months with Chorea or St.
Vltus's Dance. She was reduced to a skeleton,
could not walk, could not talk, could not swal
low anything but milk. I had to handle her
like an iufaut. Doctor and neighbors gave her
up. I commenced giving her the South Ameri
can Nervine Tonic: the effects were very sur
prising. In three days she was rid of the ner
vousness, and rapidly improved. Four bottles
cured her completely. I think tho South
American Nervine the grandest remedy ever
discovered, and would recommend it to every
one. Mbs. W. 6. Ensminqeb.

Which 'we now offer you, is the only absolutely unfailing remedy ever discov

and horrors which are the result or disease and debility of the human stom
ach. No person can afford to pass by this jewel of incalculable value who ki
affected by disease of the Stomach, because tho experience and testimony of
thousands go to prove that this is the one and only one great cure in the
world for this universal destroyer. There is no case of unmalignant diseaso

American Nervine Tonic,
Harriet E. Hall, ot Waynetown, Ind., says:
"I owe my life to Tho Great South American
Nervine. I bad been In bed for five months
from the effects of an exhausted 6tomach, In
digestion, Nervous Prostration and a general
chattered condition of my whole system. Had
given up all hopes of getting well. Had tried
three doctors with no relief. The first bottle of
the Nervine Tonic improved me so much that I
was able to walk about, and a few bottles cured
me entirely. I believe it tho best medicino in
sh world. I can not recommend it too highly."
Mrs. Ella A. Bratton, of New Ross, Indiana,
snys : "1 can not express how much I owe to the
Nervine Tonic My system was completely
shattered, appetite gone, was couching and
spitting up blood; am sure I was in the first
stages of consumption, an inheritance handed
down through several generations. I began
taking the Nervine Tonio and continued its
use for about six months, and am entirely
cured. It is the grandest remedy ior nerves;
stomach and lungs I have ever seen.
