THE ARGUS, SATURDAY, .FEBRUARY 10, .1900.-
Inward cleansing Is as necessary as outward bathing. To keep the
bowels, free and regular is of even greater importance than to keep
the skin-pores from becoming, clogged. The neglect of either in
vites disease. Everyone needs a natural laxative occasionally, to
free the bowels.of accumulated impurities. For this purpose take
the greatest boon ever offered to those who suffer from the ills
that' follow constipation. For over fifty years Beccham's Pills have
been famous as a Stomach corrective, a Liver regulator and Bowel
laxative. They , never gripe nor cause pain. Powerful purgatives
are dangerous .Avoid them. Use Bcecham's Pills. They give re
lief without doing violence to any organ. Their action is in har
monv with physical laws. Take them regularly and the necessity
for their use becomes less frequent. They are a natural laxative
and a positive, cure for Constipation, Biliousness, Indigestion, Sick
Headache and Dyspepsia.

"What do you suppose they will do to

Ann turned sick. "Oh, I don't know!

Ann reluctantly followed Barnett in

with his wounds dressed and limbs

were calm and quiet, lie reached a

process Is somewhat difficult, requiring
time, patience and Booie'outlay of mon

sults! The diamond, we know, is sim
ply carbon tn a transparent crystalline
form. It ! comes of bumble parentage
and Is brother to the lump, of coal. .
UMtke easily crystallizable bodies,
carbon is Insoluble m all ordinary solv
ents, but molten metals will combine
with It. Let the diamond maker choose
iron for a solvent for charcoal, melting
it In an electric furnace, allowing it to
take up as much carbon as it can In
other words, saturate Itself with car
bon. The crucible containing the-white
hot metal should then be plunged into a
bath of molten lead. The result will be
that globules of Iron will rise to the
surface of the lead and are quickly
cooled on the outer surface. Inside the
bard crust the Iron remains for some
time in a molten condition, and as iron
expands in solidifying the contents of
these little globules receive a pressure
unattainable by any other means
When the lead becomes solidified some
bullets of Iron will be found bound up
In the mass. Dissolve with some pow
erful acid first the lead and tlieu the
iron, and a residue of carbonaceous
matter will be found to contain tiny
crystals real diamonds. Any chemist
with a well equipped laboratory can
make diamonds In this way. but the
largest of them will not be more than a
fiftieth of an inch in diameter.
