Deeds Are Fruit,
Words are leaves." It is not what
we say, but what Hood's Sarsaparilla
does that tells the story. The many
wonderful cures effected by this med
icine arc the fruits by w&ich it should
Ie judged. These prove it to Iks the
great, unequalled remedy for dyspep
sia, rheumatism, scrofula, salt rheum,
catarrh and all other ailments due to
impure or impoverished blood.
Hood's Pills are non-irritating, mild,
Phclp's "4-C" Couh. Cold and
Croup cure is guaranteed. It cures
chronic cases. It is out of the old
rat. For asthma and all other lung
troubles take "4-C." The Harper
Manv have lost confidence and hope
as well as health, because they bav$
been told their kidney disease was in
curable. Foley's Kidney Cure is a
guaranteed remedy for the discour

The Walls Ran Down.
The Irishman who went up in the ho
tel lift without knowing what it was
did not recover easily from the sur
prise. He relates the story in this way:
"I wint to the hotel, and, says I, Is
Misther Smith inr
" Yes,' said the man with the sojer
cap. 'Will yez step in?
"So I steps into the closet, and all of
a snddint he pulls the rope, and its
the truth I'ze telling yez the walls of
the building began running down to
" Oeh.' muitlier!" says I. 'What'H be
come of Bridget and the children which
was left below there?
"Says the sojer cap man: 'Be alsy,
sorr. They'll be all right when yez
'"Come down. Is it? says I. 'And
it Is no closet at all, but a baytbenish
balloon, that yez got me in:
"And wid that the walls stood stock
still, and be opened the door, and there
I was wid the roof just over my head!
And. begorra. that's what saved me
from going up to the hevins intirely!"
Dahlias For Food.
It is an Interesting fact that when
the dahlia was Introduced into Europe
it was not as a flower that It was
valued, but as a vegetable. The plant
Is said to be really akin to the potato,
and it was tlioug:t that it would prove
an -important addition to our food re-
jrces. Tbe single variety seems to
nave iK'en Import od first, the Marchion
ess of Bute having introduced It aiout
100 years ago. It came? to us from
Madrid, the Spaniards having. It Is be
lieved, found it first in Mexico, and It
was Introduced Into France as well as
A few daring adventurers appear to
have made trial of it as an edible root,
but It is never an easy matter to iopu
larlze a new article of food, and the
tuber of the dahlia did not take on. If
it bad done so, tbe probability Is that
we should never have troubled much
about Its cultivation as a flower. We
never do grow things for fruit and
flower, too. and If tt-e had sacks of
dahlia bulbs in Covent Garden we
should have had no dahlia show at the
Crystal Talace. London Correspond
