writes of Dr. Miles Heart Care. "Two year:
ago an attack of LaGrlppo left me with
weak heart. I bad ran down in flesh to
mere skin and bone. I conld not sleep lying
down for smothering spells; frequent sharp
darting pains and palpitation cnscd a con
stant fear of sadden death, nothing could
induce me to remain away from home over
night. My local physician prescribed Dr.
Miles' Heart Care and In a few days I was
able to sleep well and the pains jrradoally
lessened, and finally ceased. I reduced the
the doses, baring gained fifteen pounds, and
am uow feeling better in every way than
have for years."

been through four epidemics since
and at first strongly entertained
he contagious factor aa a cause, but
experience had convinced him that it
was infectious and probably very
mildly contagious. Tbe earlier cases
in any epidemic were the most viru

the milder cases to a successful tor

discouraged or alarmed, as we had

CATARRH OF THE STOMACH.
The t'aaralnly Russian Sailor.
A real sailorman has fingers bent vn
like fishhooks from the lifelong habit of
grippinp: things. The Russian sailor
carries his hands like a soldier and can
not possibly be "handy." A sailor's
gait ashore has a slight roll. This arises
from t,he need at sea of keeping up tho
windward side of a rolling ship. And
the rolling gait marks one of a Miilor'a
finest qnnlities balance. Unless tho
body balances and poises to meet every
motion of a shin the result is sc;uick-

danger. The Black sea squadron can
only put to sea in the three calmest
months of the summer, and the 6o called
maneuvers take place ashore on the

One more trait of the real sailor is his
elf reliance, which makes him fit for
facing emergencies single handed. Bnt
the Russian bluejacket has none of this.
He is not a machine in himself, but
only a little bit of a machine which
cannot work without the other bits. He
