A woman's Darden,
From se bEvening Hies, DetroU. Mi.
The women of to-day are not as strong as
their grandmothers. They ar beng a
lurden in silence that grows havier day
by day; that Is spping their vitality aad
alouding their happiness.
Mrs. Alexander B. Clark, of 417 Mhigan
Avenue, Detroit, is a typical woman of to
day. A wife with such ambition as only a
loving wife can have. But the Joys of her
life were marred by the existence of dis
ease.
Bufferlin as thouqgads of her sisters have
suffered, sue almost despaired of life sad
yet she was oured.
"For five years I
suffered with ovarian
trouble," is Mrs.
Clark's own version
of the story. "I was
not free one single
day from headache
and intense twitelt
Ing pains in my neck
and shoulders. For

come blind. My nerves were in such astate
that a step on the floor unsettled me.
"Eminent doctors, skillful nurses, the
best foodand medicine all failed. Then I
consented to an operation. That, too,
failed, and they said anotherwas necessary.
After the second I was worse than ever and
the world was darker than before.
"It was then I heard of Ds. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People. I heard that
they had cured cases like mine and I tried
them.
"They cured mel They brought sun
shine to my life and filled my cup with hap
piness. The headache is gone; the twitch
ing is gone; the nervousness is gone; the
trembling has ceased and I have gained
twenty-six pounds. Health and strength
Ismine and I am thankful to Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People for the blessing."
These pills are a boon to womankind.
Acting directly on the blood and nerves,
they restore the requisite vitality to all
arts of the body; creating functional rega
Iarity and perfect harmony throughout
the nervous system. The pallor of the
cheeks is changed to the delicate blush of
health; the eyes brighten; the muscles
grow elastic, ambition is created and good
health returns.

terestlng Matter. .
Tennessee is for peace, but it is
better prepared for war than any
southern state. I have recently trav
eled .over the southern portion and
was profoundly impressed with its re
sources. There is a branch railroad
running from Decherd to Winchester
and from there curving around in a
southwesterly course to Fayetteville
and thence to Petersburg and Lewis
burg and Columbia. Governor Taylor
was on the train and told me that this
was the garden spot and along this
road were the best farms and the best
farmers in Tennessee. I never saw
such beautiful fields of wheat in my
life and the averageeld is said to be
25 bushels to the acre. Well, of course,
a war will want wheat. Then this is a
fine stock country and the war will
want mules and cattle. Their cattle
are of the large Durham breed, so
large that some of thenm bring from
$60 to $70 apiece, and are always in
demand. The farmer under whose
hospitable roof I stayed while in
Petersburg had 120 brood mares, and
raised mules by the score. He ships
large numbers of Durham cattle and
has a side show of fine hogs and
sheep and turkeys, ducks, chickens
and geese. Everything he raises
is first quality. He paid $15 for
one turkey gobbler. He is shipping
and selling something almost every
day. He raises large crops of wheat
and oats and corn, and yet finds time
to work for his church and the par
sonage and the public school. At home
he helps his good wife to nurse the
baby and to look after the children and
does everything quietly and pleasant
ly. That is what I like. It does not
take me long to diagnose a family and
to tell who is the boss, but I dident
see any boss about these premises, nor
any badly behaved children. If Mr.
Edmiston is a fair sample of the citi
zens around Petersburg, no wonder it
is a prosperous town. I was told that
not long ago there was one shipment
of eight hundred geese to Chicago and
that the anmaal shipment of fowls from
that point exceeded $100,000. Just
think of it! Petersburg is known
abroad as the central point of a fine
stock country, and their annual fairs
are attended by stock men from far and
near.
But it is a small town-is not even a
county seat. It is the character of the
people that makes it what it is. Good
land and good farmers will make any
place prosper. The 4berchants have
department stores and pay a little
higher for produce and fowls and eggs
than is paid elsewhere. There is a
large and successful creamery here
and two large sawmills and the largest
stock logs I.jver saw, many of them
measuring five feet in diameter. These
are chiefly poplar and white oak and
the trees grow on the hill sides clear
up to the ridges. The stocks are
rolled down to the pike road in the
valley, and from there are easily
hauled to the mills. Oh, those de
lightful turnpikes. They are all over
this country and have doubled and
trebled the value of the land. You
can't buy these farming lands for less
than $50 an acre, and much of it
brings $100. I saw a large field in
wheat that recently sold for $100 per
acre at public sale. Why should it not?
Every acre will turn out twenty-five
bushels of wheat and that is %torth
now for July delivery $22. One man
sold his crop last week for 90 cents a
bushel. He didn't believe the war
would last until harvest or he wonuln'i,
have done it.
I never realized the value of like
roads until this visit. Forty bushels
of wheat is a big wagon load ill our
country and it takes a good team to
haul it to town. But they can hanul
from sixty to eighty on a pike and
with less strain on the team. Satltur
day night found me at Lewisbutrg, and
to my surprise I learned there was no
train on Sunday nor until Monday
eve, and then I would have to stay at
Decherd three hours and st Chatta
nooga four hours and reach home Tues
day morning.
i was distressed, for I left a dear
little grandchild sick, and so I dared
to travel on the Snlaath day. War
trace was thirty miles away, andU the
Nashville train going east would pass
there at 11 o'clock. The livery man
very quietly told me that if I would be
ready at half-past 5 o'olock he would
put me there by half-pa',t 10. He did
it, and I never had a more delightful
ride. The good horse never broke his
long, sweeping trot, except at the toll
gates, where I paid 10 cents, and there
were five of them on the route. The
morning air was bracing, the buggy
springs were easy, the cusfions soft
and elastic and the driver companion
able. He took me for a preacher,
which is proof that I talked good Sun
dXa tt~ lbyvill e we changed horses,
and the last nine miles were driven in
cxactly one hour. That last horse was
a wildcat, and for a mile or two my
tranquiility was disturbed. He dident
want to leave the stable. He reared
and pranced and backed his ears and
backed the buggy down the little hill
and out it around, but the driver knew
him and talked kindly to him and let
him turn round and go the other way.
Finally he'gaste a snort and waked up
to business, and we drove around a
square and got in the right road again.
He'leaped the railroad with proud dis
dain, sad the driver let him have his
own way, speaking gently all the time.
I nefer rode after a horse like that
one. As we neared the toll gate the
drivr eried out, "Iaaise the pee, raise

Macon and hear him lcture. He ha
just returned from Utah, where he had
been leoturing to the Mormons, who
had many wives, and his card of invi
tation I have yet, and it says: "Admit
the bearer ad one wife." So I went
to Macon aan heard him. He had
aissed his appointment by reason of
the train breaking down at a little
town in Alabama called Pollard. He
looked at his audience, and in a lioe
s of sadness told them of hia~mistfortune
and how he had to stay at Pollard for
twenty-four hours. Then he almost
cried as he asked: "My friends, were
any of you ever in Pollard? I hope
not, and that you never will be. Rather
than live in Pollard I would live in-I
would live-in vain."
I thought of that the other night. It
was 3:30 o'clbck when I was aroused
by the porter's cry of Decherd-all out
for Decherd. Soon I was on the plat
form and waited for some one to say,
"hotel, sir!" The train sped away
and I looked in vain for somebody who
wanted to see me. The telegraph op
erator was clicking his machine in a
room and his light shone dimly
through a hole in the wall. I saw a
colored man near the door and asked
for a hotel. "One right 'round de
corner," said he. "Walk down de
platform and you see de light." It was
dark and had been raining. I saw the
light dimly burning and waded
thrqugh some black Tennessee mud to
get to it. Anybody could have knock
ed me in the head or have robbed me
without resistance. When I got to
the piazza I missed counting the num
ber of steps and fell upon the floor. I
had rather fall up any time
rman to fail Gown, especially In
the night. I tried the door
and found it locked. Well, I tried for
ten minutes to arouse somebody, but
I tried in vain, and sadly returned to
the little depot with my shoes more
wetter and more muddier. The color
ed gentleman was still there. Said I:
"My friend, I couldn't wake up any
body over there." "I was afeered
you couldn't," said he; "Uncle Bill is
gittin' powerful old, (That's me,
thought I,) and he ain't very liable in
de night time." That's me, too,
thought I. So I took a back seat in
the cold, cheerless waiting room and
remained there and ruminated until
sunrise, when a train came up and
took m 3 to Winchester, which is only
three miles away, and is the county
seat. It is a pretty town and quite an
educational center. Breakfast was
ready and was inviting, and
in a little while I felt like
another man, ann sama to myseir,
"All's well that ends well." But, oh,
those two long, dreary hours at De
cherd, and it looks like a pleasant lit
tle hamlet, but it sadly needs some
accommodations for wayfaring and
aged travelers. There were some dy
ing embers in the stove, but there
were no chairs, and I couldn't 'rm
my feet from the seats that were fast
ened to the wall. My legs were not
long enough. But as General ee

REMARKABLE MARKSMANSHIP.
Killing Four Caribou Out of Five at Long
Distances.
A party of four of us left here for
the upper part of the state for a four
days' hunting trip on Feb. 12, says a
Bath (Me.) letter to the Army and
Navy Journal. There was one man
among us, Orderly Sergeant Richard
son, U. S. A., at Fort Popham, Me.,
still in the service. On the third
morning three of us-the sergeant, an
other, and myself-left camp together
in search of game, the snow falling
thick, but calm; no wind. We had
not gone more than a mile from camp
when we saw on the next ridge (a hilt
side) five caribou standing on the hill
side in such open place that it was al
most impossible to get nearer them
without being seen. After a wait of
some time for them to change their
position, that we might advance nearer
and get a shot of more certainty, our
silence was broken by the sergeant's
remark that he had killed deer as far
away as that, and thought he could
kill one of these.' We all agreed to
let him take a shot, and estimated the
distance at 500 yards. When he got
in his position, 'which he calls the
Texas grip, and selecting the one on
the right, told us to look out for him,
at the crack of his rifle, to my great
surprise, down came the animal with
his back broken. The others being
bewildered, ran in a circle like, stop
ping to a standstill somewhat nearer
to us. All hands estimated 450 vrfs.
Again he selected the one on the-igrt,
and at the crack of the gun agein the
animal dropped, shot through the
heart. The other three leaped off in
another direction, as we estimated
600 yards. Then the sergeant ad
justed his sights to that distance, and
to my greatest surprise he killed the
third one. The other two separated,
and one of them came back near the
first one that was shot, when he stood
broadside to us and the sergeant fired,
but shot low arid broke both front legs
just above the knee. After a little
skirmishing about in the brush we
found him, and one more shot from
the old Springfield rifle, with the ser
geant behind it, gave us- four out of
five caribon, and only five shots fired,
and by only one man at that. We
went into camp with flying colors, and
were the centre of attraction that
evening.
One of the party inquired of the
sergeant where be had obtained such
proficiency in marksmanship. when
he pulled his coat open and exhibited
a splendid gold badge from the army,
a distinguished marksman's medal,
won by him in 1889 in the division
competion of the army, Department of
the East. Onr party were on this
hbunt for several days, and killed six
deer, two elk, and four caribou, of
which SergeantRichardson killed four
caribon, three deer, and one elk, and
he killed them all over 400 yards, ex
cept one deer, which he shot on the
run, and and about 150 yards distance,
breaking his neck.

swans. One morning he saw a swan
withIts head under water-no an
usual thing, so he thought nothing of
it. The next morning jit was in ex
actly the same place and position.
Still, that was not remarkable, and he
passed on. On the. third morning,
seeing the swan in th same position,
he called the attention of the keeper
to it. The keeper proceeded to ex
amine, and found that the swan's
head had been awallowed by a large
pike. Both, of 6ourse, were dead.
