MARK TWAIN RECALL! "STUNT 6"
OF BICYCLE DAY3.
HI Cffort i to Tacr th Wild and
Unruly "Ordinary" Deserved
Compliment Paid Him by
Susy's next date la Not. 29, 18f3
the ev of my fiftieth birthday. II
ins a tiH-,4 while ago. I must bav
been rather youug for my age then
for I wag trying to tame an oi l fash
lout-d bicycle ulne fci-t fclt;h. It la tc
irip almost unbelievable, at my pres
ent stage of life, that there have rl
ly been pi'!e willing to trust them
selves upon a, dUzy and unstable alii
tuJe like that, and that I u one ol
them. Twlrtiell and I Umk lesson
tvery 6y. lie sueci-dod. and bo
came master of the art of riding thai
wild vthkle, tut I bad n Rift la thai
directum and was never able to staj
on mine long enough to Ret any satis
factory view vf the i.Innrt. Ever)
time I tried to steal a look at a prett)
girl, or any other kind of eceuery, thai
single moment of Inattention gave th
hlcycle the chance It bad been wait
las for. and I went over the front o
It and struck the ground on uiy heat
r my back before I had time to real
lie that something was happening.
didn't always go over the front way;
J had other ways, and practiced then
all; but no mutter which way wai
chosen for me there was alwayi
okb monotonous result "the blcyclt
aklnncd my leg and leaped up Intt
tbe air and ra;s down on tcp of roe.
Sometimes lu wires were o rprunt
by this violent performance that I
had the collapsed look of an umbrellt
that bad had a misunderstanding wltl
a cyclone. After each day's practice
arrived home with my tkln hanplnf
In ribbons, from my knees down.
plastered the riblnins on w here thej
belonged, and bound them there wlti
bandkerchiefs steeped In liniment and
was ready for more adventures nex
day. It was always a surprise to m
thr.t I had no muih skin, and that I
beid out so well. There was alway
plenty, and I soon ratno to undtrstuii
that the supply was going to remaii
sufficient for all my neJs. It turnec
out that I had nine skins. In layers
one on top uf the other, like the leave
of a book, and come of the dooion
said It was quite remarkable.
I was full of cutbunlitFin over thit
Insane amusement. My teaefcer '
a -yi'iing German from the bicycle fac
tory, a gentle, kindly, patient ere a
tu re., with a pathetically gravo ftio
lie never suilied; he never made a r
mark; be always gathered nie tendej-
ly up when I plunged off. and be!j
me on SKiiln without a word. Wbe
be bad Wen teaching me twice a da)
for three weeks I Introduced a nr
gymnanir one that bo luui nevei
wen before and so at lost a compll
Runt wa wrung from him, a tbtni
which I bad been risking my life foi
days to achieve. He gathered me U
and said mournfully : "Mr. Clemena
you can fall oft a bicycle In more dlf
ferent ways than any person I vei
saw before." Mark Twain, In Noitl

ECALY ERUPTION ON BODY.
Doctors and Remedies Fruitless Suf
fered 10 Years-Completely
Cured by Cutieui-.
"Small sores appeared on each cf
my lower limbs and shortly afterwards
tbey became so sore that I could
scarcely walk. Tbe sores began to
beat, but small ccaly eruptions ap
peared. The Itching was so severe
that I would scratch tbe soTes until tho
blood began to flow. After I suffered
thus about ten years I made a renewed
effort to effort a cure. The eruptions
by this time had a;reard on every
part of my body except my taf-e and
band. Tbe best doctor tn my native
county and n.sny ' remedies gave no
relief. All this wss fruitless. Kindly
my hair began to fall out and I was
rapidly becoming bald. A few months
after, havlr.g ttxed almost everything
else, I thought I would try Cutlcura
Ointment and Cutlcura Soap. After
using thre boxes I was completely
run!, and my hair wss restored, after
fourN-en years of suffering and an ex
penditure of at least T0 or ICO tn vain
ly endeavoring to find cure. D.

The raveling of state hifbwsrs !

generally been prevented In tbe part
by sproA'Mtig a thin rct cf sand over

times during t!i year:
Cayley. Alta., Dee. 7, J90.
Agent Canadian Government,
Watertown. 8. V.
Your letter dated No. ITth at hand
nd '.J very glad to hear from yon.
I see that you are still at work per
suading people to move Into the Cana
dian Northwest. I must tell you that
I owe you many thicks for persuading
me to come out here, am only sorry
that I wasn't persuaded sooner, and
there Is still plenty of good chances
for many more right at the present
time. I hope tbat you will be able to
Induce more to make a start out to
this part of the country.
Now I ra-uEt tell ycti what I have
accomplished since I came out here
and It won't be three years till the 1st
of July. I shall shortly receive my
patent for my homestead, the home
stead cost me 110.00 In all, to-day It Is
worth $30.09 per acre, but It Is cot for
sale. Then a year ago last May I
bonht 220 acres at ?.'.0 per acre and
sold this fall for 110.09 tier acre and
cleared a profit or $4,160.00. How la
that for the Northwest I now have
320 acres of land and all paid for, IS
head of horses, SO head of cattle, 21
pigs, t sheep and about 150 chickens
and ether poultry, and all new ma
chinery and everything Is paid for.
We also bought 8 lots In Calgary and
7 In High River. We gave $170 for
tbe 15 lots and they are paid for. At
present I consider myself worth $13,-
000.08. and when I left Wisconsin lest
than three years ago I had about
$2,000 00. This year I threshed a little
over 4.000 bushels of grain, have
about one thousand bushels of fine
potatoes and about five hundred buth-
e!s of turnips. Mrs. Belslegel sold
about $100 worth of garden truck and
poultry this fall. Now there are lots
of others In this community who did
as well as I did In the same length cf
The family and myself are all well
at this writing and hope; this letter
will find you the same.
Yours very tnj!r.

the flavor and they cheer SCHNAPPS
because SCHNAPPS cheers them
more than any other chewing to
