The camel is n beast of great strength and en
durance. Nothing hurts It until the proverbial
"lost straw" Is added to its burden. Tho human
digestive system is very much like a camel. It is
really astonishing how much abuse it will stand.
SometImes,ihowevcr,somethIng worse than usual
will be eaten, and will go through the stomach
into the bowels, and there it will stick that's
constipation. Nine-tenths of all human sickness
Is due to constipation. Some of tho simple
symptoms are coated tongue and foul breath,
dizziness, heartburn, flatulence, sallowness, dis
tress after eating, headaches and lassitude. A
little thing wllllcause constipation, and a little
thing will relieve It. Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pel
lets are acertalu curcfarconstlpation. They nre
tluy, sugar-coated granules, mild and natural In
their action. There is nothing injurious about
them. Sold by druggist".

Four American States Aro More Than Her
It is interesting to know that tho total
population of Spain is 17,G5G,G32. Many
people, without looking up the matter,
would say at a guess that Spain's popula
tion was 35,000,000 or 40,000,000. But it
is, in reality, not 18,000,000. Spain has an
area of 197,070 square miles. Tho area of
Franco is only a few thousand squjiro
miles greater, and yet France has a popu
lation of very nearly 40,000,000. Texas
would have 70,080 square miles left over
The States of Pennsylvania, New York,
Illinois and Alabama have more popula
tion together than has Spain, and are im
mensely more wealthy. These States
could borrow enough money, with their
whole field of commodities, men, and
capital behind the loan, to pay off at one
coup tho whole national debt of Spain.
They could raise, pay and maintain a big
ger army than Spain could. Their natu
ral resources could outlast Spain's ten to
one. Their steam power is infinitely
greater, and as man power can always be
gauged by steam power you can imagine
the difference. These four States could
exist if they sequestrated from all tho
rest of the world. Spain could hardly
live a clay.
She has Bteadily shrunk and shriveled
and lost her possessions, until now all
she has left worth speaking of is Cuba.
The Philippines aro insignificant posses
sions. Only one Ination in Europe is lower in
enlightenment than Spain. Thatis Italy.
Of all the population of Spain only 28 per
cent, can read nnd write, 4 per cent, can
read only and 08 per cent, can neither
read nor write.
Spain's banking power, liko her steam
power, is practically nil. She has in all
not quite 7,000 miles of railroad.
