"It is with pleasure that I give you the details
of our little May's sickness and her return to
health by the use of Hood's Sarsaparilla. Sha
was taken down with
Fever and a Bad Cough.
Following this a sore came on her right side he
tween the two lower ribs. In a short time an
other broke on the left side. She would take
spells of sore mouth and when we had succeed
ed in overcoming this she would suffer with at
tacks of high fever and expel bloody looking
corruption. Her head was affected and matter
ooaed from her ears. After each attack she be-
came worse and all treatment failed to sire her
relief until we began to use Hood's Sarsaparilla.
After she had taken one-half bottle we could see
that she was better. We continued until she
had taken three bottles. Now she looks like

«J. R. WATKINS.
In the year 1868, Mr. J. R. Watkins first began
the manufacture of Dr. Ward's Liniment. For
years he struggled along with limited means,
striving with all his powers and at times despair-.
ing of success, but at last established a living,
paying business,andmade the name "Dr. Ward's"
a household word in thousands of homes. Dur
ing all these long years of toiling and waiting,
Mr, Watkins little thought that men could be
found so lost to eyery ^principle of right and
justiofc as to undertake to despoil him of nis bus
iness, and themselves to attempt to harvest the
fruits of his life-ldiig labors. Tiowever, this
matter, be learned that he was mistaken, in
various ga the country, sprang up bogus
agents offering medicines said to beDr. Ward's or
"lust as good as Dr. Ward's," frequently leading
customers into thinking they had the genuine
article. Therefore, in order to protect his busi
ness and the public from being imposed upon,
Mr. Watkins bought from Richard Ward, the
world-wide fight to use his name as a-trade
mark for A fululne 0f medicines, and causedther
same to be registered lit the U. S. Patent Office

FRANCOIS COPPEE AND HIS FRIENDS
IN THE JARDIN DU LUXEMBOURG..
It Is Touching Sight to Watch the Poet
Feed His Pets In Public Garden—A
Man Who Is Loved by All and Is "Dear
Master" to the Students.
Francois Coppee, the author of "For
the King," has a great many friends in
Paris, bat none of them is more devoted
than the little birds that live in the Jar
din du Luxembourg. They know Mm as
soon as they see him come in at one of
the wide gates, his shoulders drooping,
his head hanging forward, his face pale
from ill health. They know in just
which one of his pockets hetcarries the
big piece of bread which he is going to
divide into crumbs for their benefit, and
they probably say in their own special
"Ah, here is Friend Coppee, bless
They are not the only ones that know
what Coppee has in his pocket. All the
Latin quarter people who come and go
through that corner of the Luxembourg
garden which faces the Odeon know that
the gentle author rarely misses a day in
his devotion to the birds. And when he
appears with a peculiar swollen appear
ance about one of his pockets they draw
quietly off to a respectful distance to
As soon as the circle of spectators
workmen in blue blonses, students in
corduroy and slouch hats, nursemaids
with barelegged children—as soon as
these elements, which might possibly
be disturbing, have taken themselves far
enough out of the way, the birds close
in around the poet nntil sometimes a
hundred of them will be fluttering about
his head or hopping about his feet.
Then he takes oat his piece of bread,
and crumbling off one corner, tosses a
morsel up in the air. Instantly there is
a flutter of wings, and two or three of
the birds dart upward, and the most for
tunate one catches the crumb in its flight
and settles down again to his place in
One crumb after another is thrown
out in this direction and that, and oc
casionally a few are scattered on. the
ground, so that the less adventurous and
weaker spirits may have their share.
Finally a good fat crumb is pinched off,
but not thrown. It is held invitingly
between the thumb and, finger, while
the poet looks at his birds as much as to
"Come, come. You know your friend
Coppee. Give me a proof of your affec
tion, as I am giving you a proof of
There is a great flutter then among
the birds, a great cocking of pretty
heads, much sharp glancing of bright
eyes. Finally one particularly brave
little creature makes a wide curve to
ward the imprisoned crumb, but his
courage deserts him on the way, and he
circles back to his place without the
prize. Coppee rubs the crumb a little,
so that a tiny morsel of it falls to the
ground, where it is quickly picked up.
It is as if he said to his small flock:
"See, my little friends, it is a good
crumb. Where is your confidence? Have
I ever betrayed you?"
As if ashamed of having hesitated so
long, a bird makes a dart toward the
outstretched hand, poises with flutter
ing wings above it, picks daintily at the
crumb and then bears it away triumph
antly in its bill. After that it all goes
merry as a marriage bell. Two or three
birds will be eating from his hand at
the same time. They light on his shoul
der, on his arm, on his hat.
The spectators meanwhile are full of
breathless interest. A child whose loud
cry of delight startled the birds into
sudden flight is unceremoniously jerked
back by his nurse with an emphatic
"Tais-toi." The students talk in an un
dertone about the dear master, as they
Last winter, when thero was an un
usual amount of snow in Paris, Coppee
was particularly attentive to the wants
of his birds, which in their turn were
more than ever appreciative of his good
offices, for the shovfrjjade pretty poor
picking for them. 'And on cold days it
was no uncommon sight to see the sftf
dents rush up to the poet afjtej^ehad
finished hisT dole and turrf up his coat
collar or tighten his muffler or button
his overcoat!"""'-*---"»*••*...,*_,,„. ar-*.^ ..se**--
'^Dear master," they would say affec
tionately, "you must be more careful of
yourself. You know you are, not strong,
and it ia cold, and we need you as much
as the birds do."
To the birds and the students he is al
ways "the dear master." It was Coppee
who wrote and read the poem for the
unveiling of the bust of Henri Murger
in that" same Jardin du Luxembourg.
Murger's name jus idolized by the whole
Latin quarter, and it is doubtful if the
students would have permitted any one
of whom they did not approve to take
part in the ceremonies at the unveiling
of his monument.
Coppee is not married, although, in
French fashion, he has a friend to whom
he makes mysterious references in his
writings as one who is dear to- him and
inVhose heart he knows he will leave
inconsolable regret when he dies. How
ever that may be, he will be BUT* of
plenty of sincere mourners—the students
of the Latin quarter and the birds of the
Jardin da Luxembourg.—New York

A* Beautiful Inetden* In the Childhood of
There is a beantifnl incident related
cf Florence Nightingale, when she was
a child. :--ls shows that God had already
planted within her. the germ-which was
to develop so7 beautifully in after days.
Her first wounded patient was a Scotch
shepherd dog. Some boys had hurt and
apparently broken its teg by throwing
atones* and it ha&been -decided to hang
it to put it out of its misery. -..•*.
The little girl went fearlessly up to
where he lay, saying, in a soft,, caressing
tone, "Poor Cap, poor Cap." It was
enough. He looked up with his speak
ing brown eyes, now bloodshot and full
of pain, into her face, and did not re
sent it when, kneeling down" beside
him, she stroked with her little ^un
gloved hand the large, intelligent head.
-To the vicar, he was rather less
amenable, bnt by dint of coaxing he at
last allowed him to touch and examine
the wounded.leg, Florence persuasively
telling him that it was "all right." In
deed, she was on the floor beside him,
with his head on her lap, keeping up a,
continuous murmur, much as a mother
does over a,sick child. Well,'' said the
vicar, rising from his examination, "as
far as I can tell, there are no bones bro
ken the leg is badly bruised. It ought:
to be fomented to take the inflammation
and swelling down." "How do you
foment?" asked Florence. "With hot
cloths dipped in boiling water," an
swered the vicar. "Then that's quite
easy. I'll stay and do»it. Now, Jimmy,
get sticks and make the kettle boil."
There was no hesitation in the child's
manner. She was told, what ought to be
done, and she set about doing it as a
simple matter of course. "But they will
be expecting you at home," said the
vicar. "Not if you tell them I'm here,"
answered Florence, "and my sister and
one of: the maids can come and take me
home in time for tea, and," she hesitat
ed, "they had better bring some old flan
nel and cloths there does not seem to
be much here. But you will wait and
show me how to foment, won't you?"
"Well, yes," said the vicar, carried
away by the quick energy bl the little
girl. And soon the fire was lit and the
water boiling. An old smock frock of
the shepherd's had been discovered in a
corner, which Florence had deliberately
torn in pieces, and to the vicar's remark,
"What will Roger say?" she answered,
"We'll get him another." And so Flor
ence Nightingale made her first com
press and spent all that bright spring
day in nursing her first patient—the
USES OF OZONE.
Valuable For Artificially Aging Llqaor or
Ozone is now practically applied for
several purposes. Experiments with, it
have shown that it will artificially age
brandy, whisky, sweet and hard wines
and liquors. Ozone will' also improve
coffee by rendering harmless, oily beans.
The aroma of tobacco is also considera
bly improved by the application of
ozone. The latest application of it is for
rapid seasoning of wood for sounding
boards of musical instruments, which
for the purpose: is left in a hermetically
closed, heated room from 12 to 24
hours, ozonified air being freely intro
duced into the room. It seems that this
process will harden the wood, increase
its resistance against the influence of
temperature and moisture and give it
considerably more acoustio or resound
Another recent application of ozonified
air is that of the thickening of linseed
oil for the manufacture of linoleum,,
which by the old process took several
months. By the liberal use of ozone,
linseed oil is now thickened to the re
quired consistency within a few days.
Most remarkable, however, is the ad
vantage of employing ozone for bleach
ing linen, since the time employed is
less than one-third of the bleaching proc
ess by sunlight, not considering that
this latter is dependent both upon the
season and the weather. The ozone proc
ess of bleaching renders the work abso
lutely independent\of outside influences.
Ozone has ajso' been found very valua

CURIOUS LEGENDS OF" THE
1 1 _.«.- Son—The Raven, the Mlnfc and «m
on In laajrends of British Coll
Trihea of Aborigines. ,„ r_
Tradition* Which Refer to the
Among the northern coast tribes of
British Columbia the raven plays an
important part. He is the benefactor of
man and by some tribes is considered
the deity himself. One of his adventures
was stealing the sun from the chief who
kept it from man in a little box, togeth
er with the moon and daylight. In one
tribe he created salmon. Another legend
makes him the grandson of the deity,
his father having left earth for a visit
Jfco heaven and there married the chief's
Another series of traditions refers to
the sun, and in a class of these the mink
is considered the son of the sun. These
legends are told by the Bliqula and
Kliyakuetl tribes of British Columbia.
In this story you will notice the remark
able resemblance to the Greek Phaethon.
Gnce upon a time the mink played grace
hoops with the ducks, and the mink
won. Then they shot arrows at a stick,
and the mink proved the best marks
man. Then all the ducks abused him
and maltreated him and finally broke
his bow and said: "We do not care to
play any longer with you.- You do not
riven know where your father is." Stung
by this taunt, mink hastened to bis
mother. She told him his father was^n
the sky it was he who carried the sun
every day. Mink determined to visit
him, and with his new bow shot an ar
row into the sky. The arrow stuck in
the sky, a second arrow hit the notch of
the first, and finally a chain was formed
reaching from the sky to the earth. Up
this ladder mink climbed and arrived at
his father's abode. His father was glad
to see him and permitted him to carry
the sun in his stead for one day. He
must ascend slowly behind the moun
tains and not go fast lest the earth
should burn. Equipping himself with
his father's blanket and nose ornament,
mink set out.
All went well till just before noon.
Mink became impatient at his slow
progress, began to run, and to kick aside
the clouds which obstructed his path.
He set fire to earth, and men, in order to
escape the fearful flames, jumped into
the ocean. Part of them were trans
formed into animals, part into real men
(they had been half man and half ani
mals before). Poor mink was thrown
from heaven into the sea below,-but
was rescued and carried home.
The legend of the visit to heaven oc
curs in many of the tribes, but with
other animals than the mink. Many
stories told -of the raven are also told
of mink. He, too, obtained fire for bis
tribe, obtaining it from the ghosts who
had it in their possession. Mink stole
the infant child of the chief of the
^ghosts and would not give it up till the
firebrand was given him.
""'Farther. south, along the coast, the
sun becomes a more important mytho
logical figure. It. is said the" Salish of
the interior burn food, blankets and
.other property as an offering to the sun.
Some of the important legends refer to
the murder of the sun, and to the origin
of the new. sun and moon1. From the
language and from the legends it ap
pears that many of the coast tribes con
sidered the moon and sun as the same
person, or at least as two brothers. One
story runs: A long time ago there was
a man named Momhanate, who was
blind. As he was unable to endure the
heat of the sun, he went fishing during
the night. When the day began--to
jdawn* his wife would go down to the
beach and call him home before the sun
rose. One day, however, his wife slept
too long, and it was already daylight
when she awoke. She called to her hus
band to return as quickly as possible,
but before he reached the shore he had
melted. Then the sons, determined to
avenge their father's death. They made
a chain of arrows and climbed up. They
killed the sun with their arrows^jm.d
