Herat is one of the oldest cities of tho
east, and was once one of the richest. To
use the word of a Persian geographer, "the
city has been fifty 'times taken, filly tims
destroyed, and fifty times it has arisen
from its ashes." Six hundred and sixty
years ago it contained, according to the
records of the period, IL',000 retail shops,
0,000 public baths, caravanserais and wa
ter mills, 3S0 schools and monastic insti
tutions, and 144,000 occupied hounes, and
was yearly visited by c.unviius from all
parts of Asia. English G.-nernls and the
Generals of Russia value Herat, no' solely
on account of the city, but on account ot
the resources of the d s riet in which it is
situated resources in Lorn ni.d bee),
which, if swept intoanv point of the Herat
district, not nicesrarily to Herat itsell,
would feed an army of at It-nut IOu.000
men, and sustain them during the final
advance upon India. It is this great c.vu
paign ground, and not exclusively I lid town
of Herat, that is the Key of India.
Col. Carson Lake got from a lady for
the benefit of New York Tribune reudcrr,
au account of her experience as a Sunday
school teacher, with CliintBo pupils in the
mission schools. "Christianity, ' she said,
"is so new to them that, when tl.ey em
brace it, they do so with grral eurneatucas.
There is no half way work with them; and
they are more strict in small mutters than
American Christians We had some of
tliem at a church sociable a few nights
go, arid we had at sunner some randies
jWhich are rolled up in paper with printed
couplets inclosed sotoo of them ex'reutely
simple. The Chinete boys read tliem and
looked surprised at seeing sued things
atrrediiut chsrch parlor, but were too
polite to say anything about them. Soon
afterward they 'gave an entertainment,
and tho same sort of candies were pro
vided; but when we unrolltd the papers
we found they had tnl en out the foolish
verses and had substitut'd texts ufcri
turo printed on little slips of paper. Some
ol us felt that we had received a well
deserved rohuke." That is to say, when
a "Heathen Chinese" becomes a Christian
he is a Christian all over and all thro'ugh.
It is a question In the public mind
whether, under nny just view of tho cir
cumstances, there is any real nerd of what
is known a the Voters' Union. Imprac
tical methods are, to say the very least
of them, impractical, and being imprac
ticable there seems to be no very urgent
onll for their utterance at this or any other
time. The submission of n constitutional
amendment rests solely with the Legisla
ture, which also lias the power exclusively
to ennct laws aflectittg the traffic, A plan,
therefore, engrailed in any State platform
would at once make it partizan. Tho
Voters' Union claims to be non-partizan,
and aUo pretends to have a platform broad
nnd comprehensive enough for members
of all purli 8 to stat.d on, The constitu
tion ol the union bnes its action on non
partisan work at the primaries with a view
to getting temperance men nominated.
While this declaration is made, the courso
of procedure seems to look to the plan ol
working from tho conventions downward,
rather than from the primaries upt' the
convention'. The trouble, with these
movements his been their impractical
methods. The action sought can come
from the Lcgisla ure alone. While there
was a thorough organization two years ago
did the Voters' Union ask the General As
sembly that was in session during the past
two winters to submit another "second
nmendment?" No, evidently it was
wis absolutely dormant while the
only body that possessed tho power
to submit nn amendment was in session.
All that was done was the pett.ion ot
the Women's Christian Temperance
Union for a proh bitory amendment, none
else wire heard from. ILe county con
ventions urc now the on', oi es that have
any beiring on this issue, as these con
ventions nominate candidates for mem"
hers of the Legislatute, the body that has
nil the power in the premises. By atten
teiilion to thtse the Voters Union, or the
Temperance people generally, can unite
their forces for effective work, if it is to be
done at nil.
After all, the gentlemen of temperance
proclivities, will find it greatly to their in
terest to attend the primaries, which is
eminently more practicable at least, than
stuying at home and complaining at what
has been done. Don't skulk and then

In 18C0 thoro appeared suddenly in
tho northern crown a star of about the
third magnitude and worth at least
$L'50. It was genorally conceded by
astronomers that this was a brand new
star that had never beon used, but up
on consulting Argclander's star cata
logue and price list it was found that
this was not a now star at all, but an
old faded out star of tho ninth magni
tude, with tho front breaths turned
wrong side out and trimmed with
moonlight along tho seams.
After a few days of phonomenal
brightness it gently ceased to draw a
salary as a star of the third magnitiido
and walked home with an "Uncle
Tom's Cabin company."
Then, again, you take a certain stylo
of star, which you learn from Prof,
bimon Newcomb is at such a distance
that it takes 60,000 years for Its lights

stock of now and second-hand stars,
and after examining the spring cata
logue and price list 1 decide that ono of

It. How do I know that It was thoro

War is a thermometer of tiro and

grain in a week, destroys tho cfiicioncy
of a mighty railroad in three days, puts

Absurd Itules of tho Kngllsh Itar.
Since tho world began was there
ever anything so absurd and indefensi
ble as tho rules of the English bar? A
barrister, howover hungry, must not
tako a foo less than a guinea; he must
not advertise for work; ho must not
treat with his clients without the inter
vention of an attorney; ho bas.no
legal claim for his fees, and bo is not
liable for his negligence. Take again
the grotesque rules as to precedence.
Thero are, lot It bo supposed, upon a
particular circuit, two barristers, A
und B. A is a prodigy of legal learn
ing, but no orator. B knows noxt to
no law, but talks liko a houso on tire.
It is thought desirable to securo both.
But the attorney forgets to look In the
"Law List," and when tho case comes
on the unfortuuato client finds that, by
roson of the rule of precedence, tho
speech falls to tho silout man, while
the orator has to content hlmsolf with
examining a few of the less Important
witnesses. Can anything bo more ut
terly foolish? London Truth.

Father, Mother, and Three Slaters Dead.
Mr. David Claypool, formerly Sergeant-at-Arms
of the New Jersey Senate, and now
Notary Public at Cedarville, Cumberland
Co., N. J., makes lite following startling
statement: "My father, mother, and three
sisters all died with consumption, and my
lungs were so weak I raised blood. Nobody
thought I could live. My work (ship
smlthing)was very straining on me with my
weak constitution, and I was rapidly going
to tho grave. While in this condition I
commenced using Mishler's Herb Bitters,
and it saved my life. Because it was so
difficult to get It in this little place, and I
had improved so mncb, I stopped taxing it
for a time, and tho result is that I have
commenced going rapidly down hill again.
Somehow, Mishler's Herb Bitters gives
appetite and strengthens and builds me up
as nothing else does, and I must have a
dozen bottles at once. Use this commu
nication as you please, and if any one wants
to be convinced of its truth, let them write
me and I will make affidavit to It, for I
owe my life to Mishler's Herb Bitters."
The secret of tho almost invariable relief
and cure of consumption, dysentery, diar
rhoea, dyspepsia, indigestion, kidney and
liver complaints, when Mishler's 'Herb
Bitters is used, is that it contains simple,
harmless, and yet powerful ingredients,
that act on the blood, kidneys, and liver,
and through them strengthens nnd invigor
ates the whole system. Purely vegetable
in its composition; prepared by a regular
physician; a standard medicinal prepara
tion; endorsed by physicians and drug
of Mishler's Herb Bitters. Mishler's Herb
Bitters is sold by all druggists. PrlceJfl.OO
per large bottle. 6 bottles for $5.00.

I am aistT-seven yean old, and hare lived In
tbla (Hill) county alf myllfe. Up to twenty-eight
rears ago I was regarded a tbe tlrongeit man In
the neighborhood the moat robust In health. In
Morember, 18o8, 1 bad a long and serious spell of
typhoid ferer. It left me emaciated and a cripple
In my right lee At times that limb was swollen
an enormous site, belnE twice sa lane aa lla nat
ural condition, and Inflamed and angry In appear
ance. From Diy knee down small sons came, and
at the ankle a large ulcrr came, which discharged
poisonous matter. My whole system became In
fected. Tbe doctors would patch me up for awhile,
but the ulcer would never heal. The' mercury ana
potash with which they dosed me brought on
rheumatism and dyspepsia. I was an object of
pit) to all my friends. Home thought that the
only hope to save ll:e was amputation. I contin
ued to grow worse, and for three years I have not
worn a shoe. Uope had almost feft me. Swift's
Hpeclfle was suggested, and I commenced lla use
at once. From the very Ant I began to feel bet
ter. I bad taken thlrty-al botlba, and the shad
ows which had darkened my life for twenty-eight
rears hare all been dissipated. The effect of the
medicine bas been wonderful Indeed. Today I am
able to attend to all my farming interests, and
walk from one to fire miles per dsy. I am satis
fled that the disease Is entirely broken up, and
henceforth I am to be free from those terrible ap
prehensions and suflerlnE which formerly mad
my life miserable, tiwlft's fifxclno hss done mora

of IU merits. Wat. It. lfjcso.
