;A Cat with. as Odd Appe#tt,
An odisnary cat's bill of f!a is quite
k-mplete when It contains In tl first
course saucer of milk, in the second
a slice, fender mouse, and in the third Ae
a piece of custard pie. But Frances
. Iolden, of Omaha, had a high-toned
cat that bore the odd name of Okoboji,
whlch Insisted on having an extra
course of erab salad. Last summer,
rwhen she and her brothers and sisters
were out camping, they gathered a bas
ket of lively little crabs and poured A
them out on the tent foor. Okoboji, Jo
being near at hand, came sniffing up.
like the danty cat she was, and all the
boys and girls were e·rprisbd to see tic

•caught hold of her tall. of her whis- W
kers and of her fur, until sae was fairly it
alive withthem. Okobojiseemed to en- i
joy It first rate, and played with them w
as it they were mice. Presently, when hi
she was tired of the fun, she sat down ia
and calmly ate all the orabs up, one w
after another. Whoever heard of a cat

The following interpetlng interviews o- a t
ceroing the efficacy of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People, have lately been re- A
ceived at the offie of this ne per: tne
The first embodiesaeo0nveritm withMrs. and
M. A. Wnitely, the widow jf the late Rer. tire
Jonathan Whitel y D. D., dtemigt div.ne
of theMethedist denomination. Mrs. Whitely say
spoke as follows: tur
"I consider it my duty to tell fqr publica- tun
tion the immense benefit I have derived from in
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Three years ago I
was stricken by paralysis, and lay helpless
for months. I was at last advised to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, which after many mis- Opt
glvings I oncluded to do. as I had lost faith thu
in all medicines. The first box helped me
much, and the continual use of the pills has
worked and is working wonders. To-day I 3an
have driven twelve miles without fatigue. I tui
cannot say too much in praise of Dr. Will- an
lams' Pink Pills for they have done me a
world of good."
Mr.Jobn W. Beatty, who is a contractor
and builder of Meadvillo, of the highest re
sportability, says: t
"Although I have passed the meridian of \
life, I am glad to be able to say that I have
but little or no use for medicine of any kind. l
But my wife is not so fortunate. During the sit
last few years she has been a sufferer from til
dropsy and disease of the heart, and at times n
suffered greatly. A few months ago she be
han taking Dr. Williams' 'iuk Pills for Pale fel
People and has been greatly lieneflted by ,a<
their use. She experienced a numbness and
coldness in her limbs and at times could
scarcely walk by reason of poor circulation oil
ofthe blood. All these unpleasant symptoms si
have disappeared and I conufiloently hope to
see her a well woman are long. I will alto de
take the liberty to speak for a brother-in-law an
of mine, G. W. Myer, who resides at Shenk
leyvilie, Mercer County, Pa. So great was
his affliction by reason of erysipe.as in the trl
face and a general breaking down of the yes- a
tem that last winter he was given up to die. ts
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People have
made him a new runa and ie is as one ree
cued from the very jaws of death."
Mr. Prentice Fry, cf Meadvlle, testifies as
follows:
"My wife and daughter have been falling It
in health fur some time and the treatments at
of physicdans in their cases have been fruit
-leas. o much has been said of Dr. Wl:liama' Ill
Pink Pills for Pale People that I resolved to to
try them, and myself and family will always c
be glad that Providence threw such a medi
cine in our way. The pale faces and wasted CO
dheoks of my wife and daughter have disap- to
peared, and the ruddy glow of health has o
appeared. Pea cannot record my feelings ina
the matter, and all I can say is that I trust
all who ate bowed down by the heavy hand tt
of physical infirmity will learn that there is ti
a remedy that cures and places suffering
humanity where they can enjoy this earthly
existence. God bless the maker of Dr. Will- s]
tams' Pink Pills for Pale People." ii"
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contaln, in a eon
densed form, all the elements necessary to
give new life and rlchnets to the blood and le
restore shattered nerves. They are an un

paths he had swept and how much can

us had not eaten to get together those

1o, earn just thirteen cents more they were
all to go for the little steam-engine in
the toy-shop window.
t- Just five minutes later Teddy stepped
into Miss Priscilla's shop with his little 1
red savuwings-bank in his hand. He emp
tied it on the counter, and out came
rolling such a swarm of dimes and nick
Sels and pennies! Miss Priscilla was so
surprised that her eyebrows went right
up to her little gray curls.
"Say, I fired that snowball," said
Teddy, bravely. "0So I ought to pay for
r it, 'course, you know."
he "Well, you are an honest boy"' said
Miss Priscilla. "But you are dreadful
. careless."
r Teddy went past the toy-shop win
dow on his way home, and he could not
help just looking at the little engine.

His Wife Keeps Him on the Uove-Medl- V
tates on Woman's Rights, Grip
and Rlheumatism.
I like to work when I feel like it, but my
wife likes me to work when she feels like it, any
and so between the two I have to work me'
nearly all the time. Yesterday I was grunt- «,
ing around with rheumatism, but she took a
notion that it was a good day to take the die,
verandah trellis down and clean away all cay
the old dead vines, and thought it would do
help me to get warmed up by exercise-and stol
it did. She knows-she has heard me try
to play off on grippe and rheumatics before
-vou can't fool the woman you have been iat
living with for 48 years-so I got the ladder ens
and climbed up to the top and cut away the am
tangled web and trimmed the running rose
vines and the wistoria and Virginia creeper
and then tore away the old canes and in
cleaned up all the trash and burned it. It all
was a big job. for the verandah is 50 feet
long and I had to move the old rickety lad
der a dozen times--several times I got sorter pc(
dizzy and liked to have alln,ljut my folks of
don't believe I am as old as I am, and they Dy:
never will believe it until I break my arm,or
my leg, or my neck. Then I reckon they Y
will te sorry. A man never grows old to t
his own family; no man is a hero to his own po
servant. The servant knows him too well,
and just so my wife won't admit that I am
too old to be useful, and she keelps me trot
ting around. She gives me precepts and
examples, for she is never idle-makes up
the bed, cleua:! up her room, puts out the
washing and distributes it when it comes
in, mends my clothes, darns mf stockings,
I sews on the missing buttons, hides
my best pants to keep me from work
ing in them and scolds me ever and
anon about my carelessness. Shlle ketps
on making little garments for the grand
- children and still llndst time to boss me in
the i.ower garden and go to the milesionary
meeting, and writes letters to the Ioys. She
never reads until almost I'd t!me, but next
morning can tell us all the aeu;s worth know
ing, andi has her opinions alctlt ('lcveland
and McKinley and Lyman Abbott and Dr.
Broughton and female suffrage. I read to
her the recent vote in parliament about that
and asked her what she thought of it.. *
"Well," said she, t'I don't care to vote, of
course I don't, but if the femae sufftrage will
Slessen fema;e 'sufferage,' I hope It will pass.
It makes my heart bleed to read at'out these
heartless men deceiving and betraying fool
I ish young girls who trusted th mi-what a
s pitiful scene it was-that ruined girl follow
_ ing that man and his bride into the parlor
ears in Atlanta. and in her presence up
c braiding him with his infamy. And just P1
d look around all over this country at the le;
t young married women who have been aban- R
doied by their unprincipled husbands, and
- now have to work and toil and almost beg ne
h for a living for themselves and their little th
g ones. If a jury of women could try these ye
deceivers and these faithless husbands they bt
e would be sent to the chaingang, where they
is belong. If a young man embezzles some of
o rich man's money and runs away, the judge fr
and the grand jury and the newspapers
ake an awful fuss about it and send tele
1 grams all over the country to catch him, but ti
- if he ruins a woman and breaks her heart pl
s and makes a wreck of her life it is hushed it;
up and nothing is done. I am not a woman's tb
f rights woman. She has rights enough, but
y there ought to be some way of avenging her Is
d wrongs." re
'That is a fact,and my opinion is that her
wrongs never will be avenged until she is t
'Y not only empowered to vote. but also to hold
. office in schoolrooms and in the government ni
of the towns and villages. The age of gal- ti
:e lantry and chivalry towards woman has
nl passed. This is the unfeeling age, and
a. woman has to shift for herself. Thirty years U'
of ago she worked at seventeen o'eulpations, g!
and now at 130, anti gets about half pri,e for a
V9 her labor-half the price that the men get
i, who do it no better. I am ashamed of my "
ill sex, and I never buy a shirt for 50 cents but h
what I remember that a poor woman made a
ýr- It-made it in some garret-worked all day
and part of the night.
"With fingers weary and worn
With eyelids heavy and red." c
And yet these lords of creation pretend b
:i, that if woman is allowed to vote she will get e
down in the slums and lose her purity. She p
is down in the slums now and would get out v
Y if she could. I know women who are at
r,' work for less than a dollar a day and have a
re to support themselves and their filtle child- b
of ren out of it, while their rich employers sit
high up in the churches and say amen and
hs amen to the preacher's prayers. I know
e. women, goodt women, accomplished women,
le whom men have ruined by neglect or aban
donment, and allthey can do is suffer and I
of le silent. I know women whoto unprinci
11- pIled husbands have been breaking their
lh marriage vows ever since they made them,
and still they pass and repas~hn in the com
munity as gentlemen. But this is the same
as old story-who cares!
oy N6w it is said that although the woman's
I, suffrage bill has passed the house of com
Smons by a large majority, it will be'gnonmi
uiously killed in the house of lords-why, I -
ir should like to know? The lordts are not a
rk senate whose age and dignity might correct
Ig hasty or unwise legislation, but they are a
pamperedt purse-proud nobility. The most
; of them are and many of them have as many
re wives as Brigham Young ever did. But the
time is near at hamnt when woman wi:l be
enfranchised in more ways than one. The
laws of marriage and divorce are'better in
Of England now than ours. They are governed
As by the church--by the ecclesiastical courts.
It takes no little time to get married. The
matter is considered and discussed openly

It must e a union that is fit to Lbe made and

Woman's Nerves. j
Mrs. Platt Talks About Hysteria.
When a nerve or a set of nerves supplying
any organ in the body with its due nutri
ment grows weak, that organ languishes.
When the nerves become exhausted and
die, so to speak, the organ falls into de
cay. What is to be done? The answer is,
do not allow the weakness to progress;
stop the deteriorating process at once I
Do you experience fits of depression, alter
inatin" with restlessness? Are your spirits
easily affected, so that one moment you laugh
and the next fall into convulsive weeping?
,Again, do you feel somethinglike aball rising
in your throat and threatening to choke you,
all the senses perverted, morbidly sensitive to
light and sound, pain in ovary, and pain es
pecially between the shoulders, sometimes loss
of voice and nervous dyspepsia? If so, you are
hysterical, your uterine nerves are at fault.
You must do something to restore their tone.

Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn, Mass., and she will give you honest,

BMas. LEvI F. PLATr, Womleysburg, Pa., had
a terrible experience with the illness we have
just described. h1ere is her own description of
her sufferings:
"I thought I could not be so benefited by any.
thing and keep it to myself. I had hysteria
(caused by womb trouble) in its worst form. I
was awfully nervous, low-spirited and melan
choly, and everything imaginable.
" The moment I was alone I would cry from
hour to hour; I did not care whether I lived
or died. I told my husband I believed Lydia
E. Pinkhain's Vegetable Compound would do
. me good. I took it and am now well and
t strong, and getting stouter. I have more
color in my face than I have had for a year and a half. Please accept my
thanks. I hope all who read this and who suffer from nervousness of this
kind will do as I have done and be cured." .~ -
Petrified Bodied.
Three bodies, all of which were more
or less petrified, were taken from St.
Philomena's cemetery, on Troy Hill, Al
legheny, yesterday, by the workmen
who are transferring the bodies to the
new cemetery at Ilomewood. One of
the bodies was that of a girl, about 10
years of age. All of them had been
buried about tlirty years. The bodies
of the man and woman were petrified
from the thighs down. *
The best specimen of the three was
that of the girl, which was in a com
plete state of petrification. A peculiar
ity about the body, however, was that
the limbs were hollow, a condition that
is very seldom found. In removing the
remains from the grave the workmen,
who were careless, broke the body in
two. All three were placed In a box
and taken to the new cemetery, where
they were reinterred.
The body of a man was also found
upon which there was a superfluous
growth of hair. That of the head was
almost nine inches long, while thte beard
was fully a foot in length. The hair
had a vigorous and lifelike appearance
and had undoubtedly attained its
growth after the body had been dead.
On account of so many sight-seers
congregating In the cemetery, a rule
has been passed to exclude all persons
except those who have first secured a
permit entitling them to watch the
work. The undertakers of Allegheny
are now the principal spectators.-Pitts

Counterfeit silver dollars as good as
the genuine, so far as intrinsic value
goes, are said to be plentifully in circ

are coined by the wrong ring.
