A CASTLE GARDEN WIFE.
SOW Er SPECIMENS OF THOSE WHO
HAVE APPLIED FOR HER.
A Second Hand Man Who Wanted a New
Wife and Two IHllars for One An Ap
plicant Who Let His Money Do His Talk.
In,: Happy Marriage and Some Miaflta.
Tb Rockland county farmer who receutly
applied to Superintendent Simpsou at Castlo
Gnrcen for a wifo was a very fair specimen
of hi ndreda of others who iniike simijar ap
plications in the course of a year. The fact
that he wantd to marry some woman who
was comfortably situated financially makes
bis c:ts an ordinary one. In other respects
he w ts more than usually particular..
Tli n applicant had no right to expect an
thiiu; out of the ordinary run of women, for
he wns, ir anything, lew prepossessing than
the ordinary run of mankind. He said be
wus 15 yeai-s of age, but he looked ten years
older at least. lie was cut on the angular
plan, and everything about him, including
clothes, manner, accent and expression, was
distinctly rural. He wanted a young woman,
stout and strong enough to do hard work,
and i killed enough in housekeeping to cook
first rate. She must have black hair and
eyes, a pleasant manner, anil, more import
ant than all, not less than $3,0110 in cold cash.
The applicant modestly confessixl to baviug
no objection to marrying a woman who had
mort money, but a woman with less never!
He said he hail lieen a widower seveu years,
and ihat his farm was worth $1,000. Ho did
not s(o anything unreasonable in a second
hand man like himself, who wus worth only
$1,000, distinctly refusing to marry any wo
man who was uot brawl new and who waa
wort j less than twice his value.

Th 're should lo no dillieulty iu pleasing
any loreigner, for the Gardeu is frequently
filled to overflowing with women represent

who L'omo from the steerage of a big steam
ship into the Imil smelling, stuffy rotunda of
the t rarden are pretty, but they are seldom

of u steumship would would mar the attrac

frequently npar awkward. The strange

about by the busy officials, and the fact of be

their homes, frightens them. Some of the men

Sometimes a man from some thinly settled

by le .ter. Usually these written applications
nave a charming fraiikiu-ss about them.
JNear y all the writers are farmers or small
tradesmen, who want a wife with money

In ad litiou to this they want ber to be both
strong and young, ao she can work, and help
them in this way. A few or them are very
fustic' ious and devote ages to describing just
the k nd of a woman they want. The most
particular of them entirely forget to describe
themselves, and this gives rise to a suspicion
that i heir apiearnnce won't stand it. Once

In the mouth of a snake the action is almost
instantaneous. The muscles become set in
knotted lumps and the creature becomes
rigid. If much is given the snake dies, but
if a small amount only is placed iu the mouth
the tauke may be restored. This, as Mr.
Oakh y bos suggested, may explain the stories
of Indian suako charmers being able to turn
a snoko into a stick. This feat is performed
by sp tting into the snake's mouth and then
placii g the hand on its head until the reptile
becon es stiffened. The effect may be pro
duced by opium or some other narcotic intro
duced with the saliva. They then rub the
snake between their hands, restoring it again
to its usual animation.
The sting or snakes is neither in the tail
nor the tongue. The death dealing organs
are tie great poison fangs. The fatal wound
is a b to and not a stiug. And among all the
specie 1 modifications of snake structure none
is more remarkable than the development of
the pc ison fang. In the harmless snakes there
is a Impish bone on each side of the upper
jaw, which may be armed with a dozen teeth
or mire. But in the vipers this bone is
short ned to a wedge, which bears only ono
great fang, though behind it there may be
two or three reserve fangs, oneof which will
rapid y become attached to the bone should
the prison tooth in use be broken. Murray's

ity, what spring cleaning ia to the neat

every Jody at this season. The body needs
to be thoroughly renovated, the blood
purifl )d and vitalized, the germs of dis
ease lestroyed. Scrofula, salt rheum
and all other blood disorders are cured by

and i uccessful spring medicine.

From a gentleman of Texas to his own
people, and all others over the country,
Hear what be says:
I have been a practical druggist In
Tyler for a number of years, and in that
time nave bad occasion to examine, try,
and notico the effect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
ent medicines on the market, and as I
have suffered untold misery myself, the
past number of years, from a severe form
of inflammatory rheumatism, and could
find nothing to cure or relieve me, I had
almost drawn a conclusion that all pat
ent medicines were more or less frauds
until about one year ago, I was in
duced by a friend now living in Tyler, to
try a preparation known as 3 B. or Bo
tanic Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on bis part, I finally made up
my mind to make one more effort to rid
myself of the terrible affliction; and it
now affords me the greatest pleasure of
my life to state to the citizens of Smith
county that I am entirely cured, with no
traces of the disease left, and all effected
by the magic healing properties of B. B.
B., which I consider the grandest, purest
and most powerful blood remedy known
to man. I have been subject to in
flammatory attacks since ten years of
age, and up to the present time have had
four. The last spell came on me in
November, 1885, over a year
ago. at which time I wss
confined to my bed for eight weeks, pass
ing the nights in misery, with no sleep
except when produced by narcotics and
various opiates. The week previous to
using B. B. B. up to that time I had only
eaten six mesls, and could scarlely sit up
without support; but after using three
bottles I was able to relish my meals and
to walk up town, and after six bottles
had been used, thank heaven, I was en
tirely cured, and not the slightest pain
felt sinse that time. When I returned to
business in February, my weight was 145
pounds, but gradually increased until my
regular weight was again attained, 210
pounds. The noticeable fact in what I
have so cheerfully stated is, that this un
paralleled and remarkable discovery, B.
B. B. , cured me in mid winter, at the
very time my sufferings and misery were
the greatest. I take it on myself as a
practical druggist to heartily, cheerfully.
as well as conscientiously, recommend
this glorious blood remedy to all snfferers
of rheumatism or blood troubles, and not
only myself, but the firm ot McKay &
Adams, who handle it, will cheerfully in
dorse its suienor merits.
