POETRY AND PROSE.
Of nil the books around the house
Arranged in piles or rows,
The picture bok's the poetry,
The butcher's book's the prose.
Of all the plttntH about the place
On which the zephyr blows,
The white rose is the poetry,
The cabbage is the prose.
Of. all the birds I daily hear,
In chirrups or in crows,
The bobolink's the poetry,
The shanghai is the prose.
And in our pretty little home
This thing my fancy knows:
My mother is the poetry,!
Her slipper is the prose.

The Smoke of Pinbook Swamp.
For more than half a century this
mysterious column of smoke by day
nnd a flame by night, rising in the
midst of an impenetrable swamp on
the Gulf coast, has not only puzzled
the rustic fishermen and hunters who
watch it from the outer edges of the
swamp, but scientists and thousands
of others who have viewed it from
elevated points about Tallahassee,
thirty miles away.
By day it presents the. appearance
of a vast volume of jet black smoke
rising up as though issuing lrom a
huge smoke-stack, ascending high
above the tree tops and floating off
on the breezes. At night it presents
a bright light, as though a large
house was burning and the flames
were not quite visible. It appears
and disappears at irregular intervals,
but always in the same place. From
Tallahassee it is south-south-east,
and when burning can be plainly
seen from any elevated position.
For more than twelve months, a few
years ago, it was continuously visible
from the oast windows of the Talla
Numerous expeditions have started
out with sanguine expectations, but
came back worn out and disgusted.
They can get all around the mystery,
and see it from any elevated stand
point, but when they start into the
swamp, which 13 from fifteen to thirty
miles across in any direction, they
are met by insurmountable barriers,
besides snakes, alligators, mosquitos
and sand flics.
It is hard to believe that a decent,
respectable volcano would hide itself
away in such an ungainly place as
this, but there is the smoke and

gunboats lying out in the gulf off St.
Mark's mistook the smoke for a con

. Consumption Cured.
An old physician, retired from
Kractice, having had placed in his
andsbyan East India missionary
the formula of a simple vegetable
remedy for the speedy and perma
nent cure of Consumption, Bronchitis,
Catarrh, Asthma and all threat and
Lung Affections, also a positive and
radical cure for Nervous Debility and
all Nervous Complaints, after having
tested its wonderful curative powers
in thousands of cases, has felt it his
duty to make it known to his suffer
ing fellows. Actuated by this motive
and a desire to relieve human suffer
ing, I will send free of charge, to all
who desire it, this recipe, in German,
French or English, with full direc
tions for preparing and using. Sent

It is by no means a new theory
that a man and woman who have
been married a great many years
grow to resemble each other,not only
in manner and voice, but actually as
to features and expression. A recent
number of the Illustrirte Welt has
an article on this subject which states
that the photographic association of
Geneva has quite lately been investi
gating the truth of this theory, by
the aid of the camera. The photo
graphs of seventy-eight elderly or
very old married couples were taken,
and an equal number tof family
groups, 'ine result proved quite sat
isfactory to holders of this theory, in.
asmuchasin twenty-four cases tho
resemblance between husband and
wife was much greater than that be
tween brother and sister, and in
thirty cases more it was fully as
great. The failure of the other twenty-four
old couples to realize the ex
pectations of those interested in the
matter is supposably due to "incom
patibility of disposition," which
time was apparently unable to com
bat in its effects.

. . . , A Texan Cloud-Burst.
N. Y, World.
I was riding in the smoking1 car of
a Texas Pacific train, when a Texan
who sat opposite mo seized the
sleeve of his coat and began to
wriLg and twist as if to clear it of
water. It was such a queer move
that I asked for an explanation, nnd
he looked a bit confused hs he said:
"It's a habit I've fallen into. I did
it without thinking."
"But your sleeve isn't wet ?'
"Oh, no. I just imagined it. I
was in a cloud burst about two years
ago, and I got so wet that it took
me three months to dry out. I
got in the habit of wringing
some of my clothes out every
hour or two and I still keep it up."

During the epidemic of flux in this
county last summer, I had hard work
to keep a supply of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Hem-
edy. People often came ten or twelve
miles in the night to get a bottle of
the Remedy. I have been selling
patent medicines for the last ten
years and find that it has given bet
ter satisfaction in cases of diarrhoea
and flux, than any other medicine I
have ever handled. J. II. Benham.
Druggist, Golconda, Pope Co., 111.
Over five hundred bottles of this
llemedy were sold in that county
during the epidemic referred to. It
was a perfect success and was the
only remedy that did cure the worst
cases. Dozens of persons there will
certify that it saved their lives. In
four other epidemics of bowel com
plaint this llemedy has been equally
successful. '25 and ,r)0 cent bottles for

What is its tone? Do you give quar

Do you talk harsh about people?
Have you unkind tilings to say of

neighbor? Look out! The meas
ure of injustice and cruelty which
enters into the conversation in some
homes is verily astonishing. The
habit grows insidiously and does not
willingly loosen its hold. What an
atmosphere in which to live ! WThat
chance is there for the growth of re

goodness, realness, grandness all
