J. R. WATKINS.
In the year 1868, Mr. J. R. Watkins first began
he manufacture of Dr. Ward's Liniment. For
ears he struggled along1 with limited means,
triving with all his powers and at times despair
ng of success, but at last established a living,
uying business, and made the name "Dr. Ward's"
household word in thousands of homes. Dur
ngall these long years of toiling and waiting,
•lr. Watkins little thought that men could be
ound so lost to every principle of right and
ustice as to undertake to despoil him of hisbus
ness, and themselves to attempt to harvest the
ruitsof his life-long labors. However, in this
natter, he learned that he was mistaken. In
arious parts of the country, sprang up bogus
itcents offering medicines said to be Dr. Ward's or
•just as good as Dr. Ward's," frequently leading
aistomers into thinking they had the genuine
vrticle. Therefore, in order to protect his busi
ICSS and the public from being imposed upon,
Mr. Watkins bought from Richard Ward, the
.vorid-wuie right to use his name as a trade
nark for a full line of medicines, and caused the
-ame to be registered in the U. S. Patent Office

HIS ATTEMPT TO DESCRIBE A RAM

The Bride Ventured a Suggestion Which

A preacher told this story at a wed

near Bloomington," he said, "when]
noticed a group of sheep in a pasture.
There was a large open space in the
midst«of the flock, and at either end ol
the space stood a_ ram. In the center,
but standing a little at one side, was
third ram. The two rams had evident!}
had a falling out about something, oi
£lse they had come to settle in a friend
ly contest which was the better ram.
Bam No. 3 seemed to be acting as—
judge, umpire—what do you call it!

each backed off to the farthest limits oi
the circle, which, by the way, was not
a squared circle. The referee stepper
out of the way, and the rams dashed to
ward each other. When their head
came together, there was a terrific crash,
and the force of the concussion threw
them as far apart as the length of thi
All the guests looked the full lengtl

"Then," continued the preacher,
"they took their places, apparently none
the worse for the encounter. Again, evi
dently at a preconcerted signal from tin
referee, they clashed together. This time
the shock was even more terrific thar
the first, and I noticed that as one ol
them went back to his—ah, what dc
they call it, corner?—he was a little un
steady on his legs.''
"Groggy!" ventured the bride.
I believe that is the technical term,''
replied the preacher, "although, as 1
have iatimated, I am not at all familial
with sporting phraseology. When time
was called for the third round—ahem—
that is, I mean to say when the ramf
had recovered strength for a third col
lision— there was another rush, a
crash, and one of the rams, the one you
so aptly described as 'groggy' (with an
acknowledgment to the bride) fell tc
his knees. His adversary did not seen}
inclined to follow up his advantage, bul
possibly he may have been restrained by
the rules of the meeting. At any rate,
after contemplating his fallen foe grave
ly for a moment he walked back to his
place. The other ram, after resting
briefly, struggled to his feet. The third
ram—the one I have called the referee
—looked at him rather inquiringly, as
it seemed to me, but the warrior show
ed no sign of recognition. He ambled
to his side of the ring and faced about.
A murmur of some sort seemed to go
through the flock. The odds were ap
parently 3 to 1 in favor of the other
ram—that is to say, it seemed to be the
general opinion that the ram with the
weak knees had been outclassed, as the
other one was decidedly the heavier of
"However, the smaller ram seemed
to have wonderful recuperative powers.
When the proper interval had elapsed,
he came up smiling, as it were. I even
thought I could see a twinkle in his eye,
for I was quite close to the fence, and
this thing took place only a little dis
tance away. As the referee stepped back
from the center of the ring, where he
kept his position between the meetings,
the other two rams drove at each other
pellmell. At the very instant when
their hard horns would have met, how
ever, the smaller ram suddenly changed
his course to the right, and the other
went through the ranks like a catapult.
"Just as he turned about, evidently
boiling ever with indignation at the
trick which had been played on him,
the other one, with the added force given
by a longer run from one side of the cir
cle to a point several feet outside of it,
where the larger ram's momentum had
carried him, shot at him like a cannon
ball, striking him full in the face and
driving him several feet away, where
he lay limp and helpless. The third
ram, who was promptly on the spot, as
I suppose every competent referee should
be, nodded his head several times—in
deed it looked to me as if he was count
ing—and then the fallen ram failing to
rise the whole flock marched away to
ward a knoll in another part of the
meadow with the victorious ram at the
head. Presently the defeated ram got
on his feet and made his way to a se
cluded spot down by a little run, where
I saw him reclining in the shade of a
large willow tree as I rode away."
"What an interesting study natural
history is," said the bride's grandmoth
er as she adjusted her glasses.
"It is indeed," said the groom's fa

A Irish Student's Reply.
An Irish student, who some years ago
attended the university of Edinburgh,
called upon one of the most celebrated
teachers of the German flute, desiring
to know on what terms he would give
him a few lessons. The flute player in
formed him that he generally .charged
3 guineas for the first month and 1
guinea for the second. "Then, by my
soul," replied the cunning Hibernian,
"I'll come in the second month."
The Wonders Tha May Seen Therein
Through a Microscope.
To the ordinary^mortal a drop of wa
ter is what the primrose was to Peter
Bell, a drop of water and nothing more,
but to the student of nature, armed
with a high power microscope, it imme
diately becomes a world teeming with
living creatures, the most minute repre
sentatives of animal life. These thoughts
were suggested by reading Professor
Grace's description of a battle he once
witnessed while examining a collection
Of rotifers, which were amassed in a
single drop of fresh water. Among oth
ers, Mr. Grace noticed a fine specimen
of infusorian, which was swimming
back and forth among the rotifers, as if
intent on mischief. On the following
day it was noticed that the rotifer col
ony had lost several of its members, and
that the infusorian's form had rounded
out until he resembled a miniature St.
Louis bartender. Mr. Grace now re
solved to watch thj mfusorian's move
ments and ascertain if possible the
modus operandi whereby the capture
of such expert swimmers as the
rotifers are known to be was effected.
A few minutes' wait sufficed. Soon it
was noticed that the infusorian was
slowly and continuously working his
way around the foot of a rotifer, which
was resting on the glass slide.
Around and around he went as slyly
as a mouse in an oats bin, and when he
had finished it was noticed that the
rotifer's foot was firmly cemented to the
glass. The infusorian, seeming to know
his victim was secure, began to goad
the tethered creature and torment it in
all the ways that devilish ingenuity
could suggest. He would jump upon its
back and bite it in several places with
lightninglike rapidity and then spring
off and seize a leg and pull it almost,
from its socket. Mr. Grace says that he
watched this unequal combat for nearly
a half hour, when it was noticed that
the rotifer was dying from exhaustion.
Noting the death of his victim, the in
fusorian proceeded to devour his prey, as
he doubtless had done the others that
Mr. Grace next examined a small
body of water, consisting of four drops,
in which there were several infusoria
and rotifers. The former proved the
enemies of the latter, just as in the sin
gle drop previously examined. It was
also noticed that the infusorian, having
devoured a victim, would almost imme
diately divide into two or four new ani
mals, each of which would quickly
swim away in search of prey, just as its
parent had done before.—St. Louis Re
BISMARCK'S BIG HEAD.
Measurements Showing That the Space For
Brains I I Is Extraordinary.
Bismarck's head, says a correspond
ent of L'Anthropologie, has been care
fully measured according to the rules of
anthropometrics by the sculptor Schaph
of Berlin, who made the statue of Bis
marck set up at Cologne. The measure
ments prove that Bismarck has a head
of extraordinarily large size. Measured
horizontally from the frontal bone to
the occiput the head is 212 millimeters,
or more than 8.35}^ inches. The dis
tance from temple to temple is 170 mil
limeters, or a trifle over 6.69 inches.
Bismarck's cranium has a capacity of
1,965 cubic centimeters, and his brain
should weigh 1,867 grams.
These figures become especially sig
nificant when compared with the meas
urements of other heads. Of 2,500 heads
measured at Baden Baden only one ex
ceeded 200 millimeters horizontally
from front to back, and that one meas
ured 206 millimeters, or six millimeters
less than Bismarck's. The mean meas
urements of 30 members of the Natural
Science society at Carlsruhe were 195
millimeters from front to back by 155
millimeters from temple to temple. The
biggest of these heads measured 205 by
162 millimeters. The cubic measure
ment of 245 German heads was nearly
500 cubic centimeters under Bismarck's,
while the estimated weight of Bis
marck's brain is 35 per cent above that
of the average adult European brain. In
fact, Bismarck is a man not only of
blood and iron, but as well of brains.

From the day he is born to the day of
his death no brush or comb is ever al

There was a thunderstorm coming up

By the time I'd got inside it was com

Husband away, no help two children

there you are. No danger of their com

THEY DEVELOPED YOUNG.
Two Famous Poets, Oliver Wendell Holmes
and William Cullen Bryant.
Oliver Wendell Holmes received the
degree of doctor of medicine in 1836,
being then 27 years old, and in that
year he also published his first volume
of poems. Nothing of Dr. Holmes' has
been more popular than "The Last
Leaf," contained in .this early collec
tion, and none has more richly deserved
to please by its rhythmic beauty and by
its exquisite blending of humor and
pathos so sympathetically intertwined
that we feel the lonely sadness of the
old man even while we are smiling at
the quaintness so feelingly portrayed.
Dr. Holmes was like Bryant, who
composed "Thanatopsis" and the
"Lines to a Waterfowl" long before he
was 20, in that he early attained full
development as a poet. Although each
of them wrote many verses in later life,
nothing of theirs excelled these poems
of their youth. In their maturity they
did not lose power, but neither did they
deepen nor broaden, and "Thanatopsis"
on the one side and "The Last Leaf" on
the other are as strong and characteris
tic as anything either poet was ever to
write throughout along life. What Bry
ant was, what Holmes was, in this, his
first volume of poems, each was to the
end of his career.
To neither of them was literature a
livelihod. Bryant was first a lawyer
and then a journalist. Holmes was
first a practicing physician and then a
teacher of medicine. He won three
prizes for dissertations upon medical
themes, and these essays were published
together in 1838. In 1839 he was ap
pointed professor of anatomy and phys
iology at Dartmouth, and the next year
he married Miss Amelia Lee Jackson.
Shortly afterward he resigned the posi
tion at Dartmouth and resumed practice
in Boston. He worked hard in his pro
fession and contributed freely to its lit
erature, and in 1847 he went back to
Harvard, having been appointed pro
fessor of anatomy and physiology, a
position which he was to hold with
great distinction for 35 years.—St.
Domestic Architecture I Chicago.
The inhabitants of Chicago are the
least curious and observing people in
the world. According to their own news
papers, they permitted one H. H. Holmes
to construct in their city a house so ex
traordinary, so full of hidden doors and
secret passages and acid proof vats that
it would have attracted thousands of
curious visitors had it been built any
where else. But the guileless Chicago
ans suspect nothing. Neither the man
who issued the building permit nor the
men who did the building saw anything
unusual about the house. What is the
matter? Is all Chicago blind, or are
acid proof vats and secret passages part
and parcel of the ordinary Chicago
dwelling? Perhaps there is an interest
ing chapter to be written about domestic
architecture in Chicago. Milwaukee
