Hon. H. H. Warner, of Rochester, N. Y.,
president of the Chamber of Commerce of
that city, waa 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 9bt Cure.
He tried it, and was quickly restored to
perfect health. Tbe incident led him to
begin the 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 States not only,
but in Canada, England, Austria,
and Burmab. His preparations meet the
requirements and effect tbe 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 highest standing
in his 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

Thla Time - Ho Talk About Wholesale
Kissing- and of Two Smart Dados.
" "If you're goto' to wait to kiss an the peoplo
In them five cabs this cor alnt goin' to wait,"
yelled the conductor of a Cottage Grove car
at Oaks cemetery the other day. The car
bed started up, but theconductor had stopped
it for the vociferous driver of a cab which
headed a line of five from the cemetery. Tbe
oscnlatory proceedings were stopped and a
lady Biade for tbe car.
' "It does beat all," remarked the conductor,
as he spitefully pulled the bell, "how some
women think they can stop a car while thoy
kiss all tbe neighbors. "
"Are you troubled much by women in that
wayf 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 youf 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
dass notion of their own smartness, but
when It comes to manners and common sense
they're Inst out. They cot on my car yes
terday, not a thousand mill's from here.
and pretty soon a big fat woman came
on. They whispered to one another and
giggled like a pan- of simpletons. Then they
got up and said, both together: 'Take our

One of them gave me a quarter to pay for

Ct. Lore's Cat.
To appreciate a story told by Capt. J. L.
Luce, a well kuown 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 any one
wno win take her to port, unless some living
creature is found on board. This creature is
generally a dog, a cat, or a bird, though why
a captain should take a cat an animal 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 in which
he was interested about eight years aso.
"This was a fine cat, a black one, that had
sailed with me for several voyages. We
were wrecked off the coast of Newfoiinlland
and deserted our vessel. She was subse
quently picked up and towed toward harbor.
Thin cat was on board and consequently
saved tho property, excepting salvage, to the
owners. Another storm was struck and tbe
vessel went to pieces on the coast. The mate
was the only man who escaped. lie went
ashore on a piece of a mast with the cat
clinging to his shoulders. "When ho was
thrown up among tho rocks the feline skipped
off, end we never heard of her afterwards.
She propably concluded that she had had
enough of the sea." Chicago Tribune.
Royal Blood Id Everybody's Veins.
Every man has two parents, four grand
parents, eight great-great-grandparents, six
teen great-great-grand parents, thirty-two
great-great-great-grandparents, etc. Now,
if we reckon twenty-five yeurs to a gen
eration, and carry on the above calcula
tion to tbe time of William the Conqueror of
England, it will be found that each living
person must have had at that time eveu the
enormous number of 35,000,000 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 ot the
family tree, still there will remain a number
at that period even to cover tho whole Nor
man and Anglo-Saxon races. What, there
fore, might have been pious, priueely, kingly,
or aristocratic, stands side 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 tho Estate.
A large jart of the estate of tbe 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 tbe 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. Tbe parties in interest
drew the numbers from the hat, and each
took for a share the list of seven plantations
belonging to the number drawn. Every one
was satisfied and pleased with the result, an
Mr. Richardson bad 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. Son Francisco Argonaut.

Something In tbe Name.
Tbe 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
tbe 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 tbe living animals would
visit the place where their bones were treated
with respect. Montreal Gazette.
The Fnrls Women's library.
The queen of Roumania, who figures as a
literary woman under the nom de plume of
"Carmen Sylva," has accepted the presidency
of the new women's library which is shortly
to be opened in Paris. This collection is to be
composed exclusively ot works by female
authors; but I have not yet heard if profane
man is to be allowed to peruse tbe contents
of the library, or if tbe readers will be con
fined to tbe fairer box. All sorts of folks in
Paris are Interesting themselves in the move
