About I'oMora' Bills.
Many a struggling family has all it can
do to keep the wolf from tbe door, with
out being called upon to pay frequent
and exorbitant bills for medical advice
True, the doctor is often a necessary,
though expensive visitant of the family
circle; nevertheless pure and well tested
remedies like Warner's Safe Care kept
on hand for use when required will be
found a paying investment for every
household in the land.
Sickness is one of the legacies of life,
and yet every ill that flesh is beir to has
an antidote in the labratory of nature.
Hon. H. H. Warner, of Rochester, N. Y.,
president of tbe Chamber of Commerce of
that city, was a few years ago stricken with
kidney disease, which the physicians de
clared incurable. In this extremity, a
friend recommended to him a vegeta
ble preparation now known throughout
the civilized world as Warner's 9uf Cure.
He tried it, and was quickly restored to
perfect health. Tbe incident led him to
begin tbe manufacture of tbe wonderful
preparation, and to make its merits
known in all tongues and among a'l peo
ple. He has now laboratories and ware
houses in the United Slates not only,
but in Canada, England, Austria,
and Burmah. His preparations meet the
requirements and effect the cure of a
variety of diseases, and are compounded
from medicinal plants of the highest vir
tu. Mr. Warner is a man of affairs, of
wealth, culture and tbe hichest standing
in bis own city and throughout the state.
His character is the best guarantee of the
purity and excellence of his renowned
remedies, which may be found in every
first class drug store of Europe and

THAT CHICAGO CONDUCTOR.
This Time He Tslka About Wnolesala
Klmlng and of Two Smart Dados.
- "If you're goto' to wait to kiss all the people
in them five cabs this car aint goin' to wait,"
yelled the conductor of a Cottage Grove car
at Oaks cemetery the other day. The car
had started up, but the conductor had stopped
it for the vociferous driver of a cab which
headed a line of five from the cemetery. Tbe
oacalatory proceedings were stopped and a
lady aiade for tbe car.
' "It does beat all," remarked the conductor,
as ha spitefully pulled the bell, ''how some
women think they can stop a cor while thoy
kiss all the neighbors."
"Are you troubled much by women in that
way!" I asked as I finished my cigar on the
platform. "No, 'cause we wont stop and the
women mostly knows it. Everything under
the sun but the cars has to wait for that sort
of thing. You've no notion," he went on,
"how one day's business would be damaged
In this city if the street cars would wait for
women like the cabs and other vehicles do."
"You're rather out of sorts with the women,
arent you?" I asked. "Oh, no, I guess not.
You wouldn't have thought so yesterday if
you'd been on my car and seen me set down
on a couple of young bloods for their ill man
ners to a lady passenger. They're great
friends and nearly always go down town to
gether. Thoy've got good clothes and a first
slaas notion of their own smartness, but
when it comes to manners and common sense
they're Jnst out. They got on my car yes
terday, not a thousand miles from here,
and pretty soon a big fat woman came
on. They whispered to one another and
giggled like a pair of simpletons. Then the
got up and said, both together: 'Take our
teats, madam.' She got red in the face and
I thought she'd say something to 'em, but she
didn't, and after a minute she took tbe va
cant place. Everybody looked at the smart
young men, but nobody said anything.
Pretty soon I commenced to collect the fares.
One of them gave me a qunrter to pay for
both. I gave him back 19 cent. 'You've
made a mistako, haven't your says he. 'Jfo,
I guess not,' I answered. 'It's only 3 cents
apiece for children and fools.' How tbe pas
sengers enjoyed it The fat woman laughed
till the car shook. Would you believe it,
them fellows had to leave the car before we
got half way up townt Of course I had to
pay the other 3 cents apiece, but I had more'n
4 cents' worth of fun." Chicago Journal
Ct. Luce's Cat.
To appreciate a story told by Copt. J. L.
Luce, a well known lake captain, it is neces
sary for the general reader to understand
that a wreck found floating at sea is pro
nounced a derelict, the property of anyone
who will take her to port, uuless some living
creature fa found on board. This creature is
generally a dog, a cat, or a bird, though why
a captain should take a cat an aniuiul that
has a natural antipathy on board with him
is unexplained. Capt Luce tells a story of a
cat that nearly saved for him a ship iu which
he was interested about eight years ago.
"This was a fine cat, a black one, that had
sailed with me for several voyages. We
were wrecked ofT the coast of Newfoundland
and deserted our vessel. She was sulwe
quontly picked up and towed toward harbor.
This cat was on board and consequently
saved the projrty, excepting salvage, to the
owners. Another storm was struck aud the
vessel went to pieces on the coast. The ninte
was the only man who escaped. He went
ashore on a piece of a mast with the cat
clinging to his shoulders. When he was
thrown up among the rocks the feline skipped
off, and we never heard of her afterwards.
She propably concluded that she had had
enough of the sea." Chicago Tribune.
Royal Blond In Everybody's Veins.
Every man has two parents, four grand
parents, eight great-great-grandparents, six
teen great-great-grandparents, thirty-two
great-great-great-grandparents, etc Now,
if we reckon twenty-five years to a gen
eration, and carry on the above calcula
tion to the time of William the Conqueror of
England, it will be found that each living
person must have had at that time even the
enormous number of 33,000,000 of ancestors.
Now, supposing we make the usual allowance
for the crossing or intermarrying of families
in a genealogical line, and for the same per
son being in many of the intersections of the
family tree, still there will remain a number
at that period even to cover the whole Nor
man and Anglo-Saxon races. What, there
fore, might nave been pious, princely, kingly,
or aristocratic, stands sido by side in line
with the most ignoble, plebeian or democratic.
Each man of the present day may be certain
of having had, not only barons and squires,
but even crowned heads, dukes, princes or
bishops, or renowned generals, barristers,
physicians, etc. , among his ancestors. Balti
Dividing the Estate.
A large part of the estate of the late Ed
ward Richardson, of Yicksburg, consisted of
thirty -seven plantations. There are five
heirs to the estate, four sons and one daugh
ter. A novel method was adopted to make
an equal and fair division of these planta
tions among the heirs. Five lists were made
out, with the names of seven plantations on
each list, so selected as to make each list as
nearly desirable as any of the others. The
lists were numbered and corresponding num
bers placed in a hat. The parties in interest
drew the numbers from the hat, and each
took for a share the list of seven plantations
belonging to tbe number drawn. Every one,
was satisfied and pleased with the result, as
Mr. Richardson had left his affairs in good
shape and hod shown such good judgment
in his investments that all the plantations
are desirable and profit paying property.
The Refuge Oil mills and Wesson mills are
still undivided, the heirs equally sharing in
the profits. San Francisco Argonaut.

Something In the Name.
The old name of "Pile of Bones Creek,"
given to a tributary of the Qu' Appelle river,
in tbe northwest, is the translation of Was
cana, and that is said to be a corruption of
the Cree word Oskana, meaning "bones,"
and owes its application to the fact that a
huge "pile of bones" of slaughtered buffaloes
had been raised by the Indians, who were
wont to dry their winter meat there, and
who believed that the living animals would
visit the place where then bones were treated
with respect. Montreal Gazette.
The Tarls Women's Library .

authors; but I have not yet heard if profane
