I've but a pencil, as you see,
A leaf from Harry's diary torn.

Harry is in the smoking car
These las- two bourn. My time's my own;
But, Hi len, dear, how strange men are! .
Three days ago time quickly flies.
And yer, it somehow seems like years
Since all he kisst-s mid good-bys,
And all the trembling hopes and fears.

SAD HISTORY OF A CAT.
foil Will Kecognize Him by the Tomato
Can Over His Head.
A person who hasevidently been driven in
sano throu;;h the midnight music of cats
sends the fo lowing communication to The St.
Louis Kept blic: My tortoise sholl cat was
presented tc- me five times; each time he re
turned to tl c place of his birth, to be thrown
into a willow lutsket and hustled back to me.
Ho continual to act in this way, receiving a
new iiKinoeirli time, until he was hardly pre
sentable. The name which seemed to please
him bt wi s that of rvtrdanaptilus. I called
him so, not only because this oriental hero
has never h id even a tiiseoso named in houor
of him, bi:t liecan.se early In life the cat

ety, chiefly at night. As soon as any one
whs stirring in the morning he would enter
Che study and curl up on the unabridged dic
tionary to take his day's rest. Managing by
strict economy to make both ends moot, hers
he would lie, growling and striking out vi
ciously whenever I wiped my pen ou him or
wished to ramsack Webster for the missing
"a" in judg nent.
But, alas, the morning of tho 14th brought
not my inrdauapalus to me. After a mo
ment's sear-h we discovered him in a vacant
lot near by endeavoring to free himself from
an empty c rn can, which, as he was explor
ing its dep us, had caught firmly in the fur
behind his ears. The can had been opened
only at one end, but a hole had been punched
in the othei end, so that Sardanapalus could
breathe eas.lv and view the surrounding land
scape to a 1 mitd extent. I approached cau
tiously to r-'inovo his sunNuinet, but the in
stant I lai 1 my baud tenderly upon him he
shot dow n the street and was gone like a
streak of god luck, knocking as he went two
baby carrii.es oft the track and leaving his
pursuers fa.- in the rear.
I went t'tbo nearest drug store to tele
phone to a 1 my friends living in the direc
tion in which he had started out. I asked
them to get a halter and try to stop him; or,
if that was not possible, to head him off.
But none of them succeeded und we never
heard of him again. "
We listen in vain for the catlike tread of
his cushion! it font. I will never again crawl
out of bed, rearing the azure robo of night ou
a rocking chair and sweep Sardanapalus and
his little liauil of followers off the back porch.
He left notning by which to be remembered
except a fe v locks of his hair, which I subse
quently plucked from the rose bush, and the

Increase of Had Eyes.
Defective eyes nre on the increase in spite
of all our lygienic teaching. The cause lies,
no doubt, in too much study of books in
early hfu and in badly lighted rooms. Theru
should lie at least one square foot of window
to every five square feet of floor in our school
rooms, aud that the light should, if possible,
be allowed to enter from the south or east,
and preferably from the south. The quantity
of light should ut least be sufficient to enable
ordinary print to foe read with ease in the
darkest corner of tho room.
Then, in addition to this, youth should
have more ut of door life to tieuefit the eyes.
The eyes are greatly strengthened by a life
in the open air. At least the eyes of students
and those T ho live much indoors twice a day
should lie bathed in cold water and massaged
carefully. This is as iixoftil for them as for
Hnraid or neaitn.
A curious feature of the National museum
at Washing ton is the zoological section, or
the depart nent ilevotwl to birds' eggs. It
has about 12,0tKi birds' eggs, packed away in
little trays placed in cases along the walls of
tho buildiu;;. The eggs in the collection vary
in size from that of the tiniest humming bird
to that of he giant bird whose remains are
found in M ulagascar. There is a little egg of
a tiny humming bird lying in a diminutive
nest. The humming bird that mode the nest
and laid tie egg is the smallest bird in the
world. The little egg has a length or long
diameter of 3-lotlis of an inch and a short
diameter of 3-looths of an inch. The nest is
l-30th of an inch across one way and 93-100

Paths of Tornado,
Professor J. P. Piulay gives the width of
the path of destruction in tornadoes, as deter

in different' portions of the track of a single

Rust Proof Paper.
The improved manufacture of rust proof
paper, for w rapping metallic articles liable
to become i arnished, consists in incorporating
with the aper or applying to its surface a
fine metal ic powder in such a manner that
it will adhere. By this means, when silver,
copior, briiss or iron articles are wrapped in
the paiwr they are preserved from rusting or
tarnishing by reason of ic greater affinity of
the zinc for sulphuretted hydrogen, chloride
or acid gat or vapors, id preventing them
from injuring articles of such materials.

feeling is entirely overcome. The blood
is purified, enriched, and vitalized, and

organ. The stomach is toned and
strengthened, the appetite restored. The
kidneys nd liver are roused and invig

made clear and ready for work. Try it.

From a gentleman of Texas to his own
people, and all others over the country
Hear what he says:
I haye been a practical druggist in
Tyler for a number of years, and in that
time have had occasion to examine, try,
and notice the effect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
ent medicines on the market, and as 1
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 aa 8 B, or Bo
tanic Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on his part, I finally made up
my mind to make one more effort to rid
myBelf 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
toman. I have been subject to ins
fiammatory attacks since ten years of
atjft. 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 was
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 that time I had only
eaten six meals, ami 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 since 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 sufferers
of rheumatism or blood troubles, and not
only myself, but the firm ot McKay &
Adams, who handle it, will cheerfully in
dorse its superior merits.
