Teaching a Dog to Swim.
A good story Is told of a well known
Instructor In swimming. One day re
cently a richly dressed middle aged
woman drove up to his school. She
carried a poodle dog in her arms.
"Oh. Mr. Jones." she said. "I want
i to have my little doggie taught to
I swim. He might fall into the water
some clay and lie drowned. Can you
"I think so." said Mr. Jones.
"How much will it cost?"
"Madam. I don't see how I can do it
for less than ."."
"Oh. thank you." she said. "And
when couid you give the poodle his

Suiting the action to the word, be
took the "little doggie" from the arms
of bis mistress and pitched hini some
twenty or twenty-live feet out into
Oh-b-h. the darling!" half shrieked
the fond mistress.
"Doggie" turned right side up in an
Instant and paddled back to the side.
Mr. Jones lifted him out of the water,

'I'ine dog. madam. Most intelligent
animal I ever saw. No trouble at all
to teach him. Needs about two more
lessons, two days apart any time in

Two Characters of Great Art.
Keiuember always you have two
I characters in which all greatness of
i art consists first the earnest and in-
tense seizing of natural facts, then the
ordering of those facts by strength of
liu man Intellect so as to make then
for all w ho look upon them to the ut
most serviceable, remarkable and beau-tii-.d.
-And thus great art is nothing
' el.:e than the type of strong and noble
inc. lor, as the Ignoble person in his
dealings with all that occurs in the
world about him Erst sees nothing
clearly, looks nothing fairly in the face
and then allows himself to be swept
away by the trampling torrent and
unescapable force of the things that
he would uot foresee and could uot un
derstand, so that noble person, look
ing the facts of the world full in the

ta ulty. then deals with them in un-

The success which has followed L.
T. Cooper during the past year with
his new preparation. Cooper's New
Discovery, is unparalleled. Cooper
has a novel theory. He believes that
the human stomach is directly respon
sible for most disease. To quote his
own words from an interview : upon
j his arrival in an eastern city: "The
average man or woman cannot be
sick if the stomach is working prop
erly." To be sure, there are diseases
of a virulent nature, such as cancer,
tuberculosis, diabetes, etc., which are
organic, and are not traceable to the
stomach, but even fevers can, in nine
cases out of ten, be traced to some
thing taken- into the stomach." All
of this half sick, nervous exhaustion
that is now so common, is caused by
stomachic coditions, and it is because
my remedy will and does regulate the
stomach that I am meeting with such
success. -- '

"For several years," says Mr. Turk
4I have suffered from stomach
trouble. I was in a badly weakened
and run down condition. After eat
ing I would bloat and be in pain and
distress for several hours. An all
gone feeling would come over me,
and I had no energy nor ambition
whatever. This condition continued
for a long time, although I took
treatment from several good phy
sicians, and tried a number of patent
remedies without relief.
"On reading of Mr. Cooper's the
ory I became convinced that he was
right, and procured several bottles
of .his New Discovery preparation, in
order to test his claims. It afforded
prompt relief, and when I had taken
three bottles, my trouble had disap
peared and I was feeling like a dif
ferent man. To make my restora

the New Discovery. It has now been
several months since I stopped taking
the Cooper medicines and I have ex

The usual symptoms of Scrofula are enlarged glands of the neck,
sores and ulcers on the body, skin affections, catarrhal troubles, weak
eyes, and general poor health. The inherited poison, transmitted through
the blood, pollutes and weakens this fluid, and in place of its nutritive
qualities fills the circulation with scrofulous matter, which saps the vitality
of the entire system. Thousands of children, born with a scrofulous taint,
have spent their childhood in constant physical suffering, and grown to
manhood or womanhood handicapped by ill health and stunted growth,
and perhaps later some disease of the bones or joints developed. S. S. S.,
given in their early life, would haye prevented this. It would have
cleansed and purified the blood of the taint, nourished and stengthened
their systems, and assisted each to grow into strong, healthful manhood
or womanhood. S. S. S. is the very best remedy for Scrofula. It goes
down to the bottom of the trouble, and cleanses the circulation of all
scrofulous matter. . It supplies the weak, diseased blood with strength
and health-building qualities, and under the purifying effects of this great
remedy all symptoms of Scrofula pass away. S. S. S. contains no minerals
in any form, and is an absolutely safe treatment for children, even, infants,
or persons of any age. Literattire about Scrofula and any medical advice
