Uow It Pay to Buy Cheap?
A cheap remedy for coughs and
colds is all right, but you want some
thing that will relieve and cure the
more severe and dangerous results of
throat and lung troubles. What shall
you do? (Jo to a warmer and more
regular climate? Yes, if possible; if
not possible for yon, then in cither
case take the only remedy that has
leen introduced in all civilized coun
tries with success in severe throat and
lung troubles, "Hosehee's German
Syrup." It not only heals and stim
ulates the tissues to destroy the germ
disease, but allays iutlammation,
causes easy expectoration, gives a
good night's rest, and cures the pa
tient. Try one bottle. Recommenc
ed many years by all druggists in the

The Peculiar Jain.
Ernest M. Bowdeii in The Nineteenth
Century rcjorts a chat with Raja
Sivaprasad on Jainism. The Jains
pay more regard to the feelings of the
lower animals than any otlier sect in
the world; will not kill them or Injure
them; are careful to avoid destroying
even Insects, sometimes wearing a
handkerchief over the mouth to pre
vent any living creature leing breath
ed in. It may be argued that this
tenderness will prove in the long run
fatal to Its iMjsscssors, handicapping
them Feriously In the struggle for life
with less scrupulous rivals. As evi
dence to the contrary Mr. Bowden
points to the Jains:
"Notwithstanding the opposition. If
not active iersecutious, of bygone
times, the one small sect which, more
than any otlier in the world, has
taught and practiced the doctrine of
'ahlmsa. or 'noninjury,' to living crea
tures, stands today, after some four
and twenty centuries. ly far the most
prosicrous community in a population,
verging on P.OO.OuO.UJO."
Weapon a of the Skunk.
A skunk once challenged a lion to
sintrle combat. The lion promptly de
clined the honor. "Why," said the
skunk, "are jou afraid?" "Very much
so," said the lion, "for you would only
gain fame for having the honor to fight
with a lion, while every one who met
me for a month would know l had
been in company with a skunk."
This reminds us of the story about
Ileurv Ward I'eeeher's father, the fa
mous Dr. Lyman Iteecher. who. when
asked why he did not reply to some
body who had severely attacked him
n a newspaper, replied that when a
ruling man, crossing a held one night
with an armful of books, he saw a
small animal and after hurling several
volumes at the animal found he got the
worst of it. and ever since had thought
It lettcr to let such animals alone.
Our Dumb Animals.
And the Minister Smiled.
The York (Me.) Transcript says that
a Portland minister recently called up
on one of the families in his parish.
He ascended the steps and knocked at
the door. Receiving no response, he
was about to depart when he heard a
window in the next house open and a
woman's voice say, "Mrs. Smith, the
minister's at your door."
What was the pastor's surprise and
amusement when he caught Mrs.
Smith's response wafted gently around
the corner of the house, "Sh, don't yuu
s'pose I know it:"
The next Suuday after service Mrs.
Pmlth met her pastor and expressed
her sorrow that she was away when he
A Brlxht Jeweler.
A gentleman tells the following joke
on a jeweler: A young man who was
on the verge of matrimony went to the
Jeweler and lwught a ring and left in
structions that in It be engraved the
egend. "From A to Z." which, being
Interpreted, meant from Anthony to
Zenobia. To his astonishment, on call
us for the ring the next day he found
engraved like an Egyptian obelisk
and on closer examination found that
he Jeweler had put the whole alpha-
et "from A to Z" on It.
