HE SURPRISED ELIZA.
Be ffmCrcrtid ultb a Little Hurprie
John K:lcrts, of Nf 'rth East, is a
fanner well enough to do, but he had
always been eccentric uUmt lua clothes.
Until a week or so ajjo h j hai not been
known to buy a new suit of jdothes for
years. The ones he w re had been so
otten patched and repute hed that no bit
of the original warp ami woof was visi
ble. This personal Hlovenliness on the
part of her husband was a source of con
stant annoyance to Mrs. Uoljerts, who is
a woman of exceptional nearness. She
long ago liecame so a$h lined of his ap
pearance that she won d no longer ac
company him to town 1 do her trading.
This singular characteristic of the fanner
was not owing to penuriousness, for he
is a liberal man in nil his dealings.
A few days ago he w nt to town to do
a huh; trading, and to the utter aston
ishment of the town he purchased a new
suit of clothes for himself. Ilia new
clothes were done up in a package, and
he placed the package on the wajon seat
beside him when he started home that
night. It was a dark night. Fanner
Rolerts had got half vay home when a
brilliant idea struck l im. He stopped
his horse on a bridge where the toad
crosses the east branch
I'll do it, by gum!" lie said. 'Til do
it and su'prise Cliza!"
Thereupon the farrni r rose up in the
wagon and legan to taie off the patched
and repatched clothes he had worn so
long. As he removed a garment he
tos.-ed it into the cnek until he had
tossed t hem all in and bad nothing on
but his shirt.
"Great apple sasa!" he exclaimed: "but
won't Eliza be su'prise 1!"
Then farmer Rolei ts reached for the
package that bad his tew clothes in. IS
wasn't on the seat- F.inuer Roberts Rot
down and reached un ler the seat. The
package wiisu't there. Then he felt all
over fjf? bottom .of the wagon. The
package wasn't anywhere on the bottom.
Farmer Roberts rose up in the wagon
and looked back alo ig the pitch dark
Then he climbed ba-jk in his seat, and
away the horses went for home. The
night was chilly, and there was three
miles to go. When Fanner Roberts
reached home and limbed out of his
wagon he paused.'
"The hull idee did i't work," said he,
"but m bet nine do lars that I su'prise
That he did no one doubts, but when
he got up iu the uior ring and "went out
to the barn. clad in the hired man's over
alls, and saw his pacl:age of new clothes
hanging by it string u the brake handle
at the side of the wagon he was a little
surprised himself. Salamanca Dispatch

"Another wonderful discovery has
been made, and that, too by a lady in
this country. Disease tHBtened its
clutches upon her and for seven years she
withstood its severesta tests, but her vital
organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months she
coughed incessantly and could not aleep.
She bought of us a bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery for consumption and was
so much relieved on taking the first dose
that she slept all night, and with one
bottle bas been miraralousl cured. Her
name is Mrs. Luther Lutz." Thus write

A Chapter on Medicine.
Formerly it waa considered
that the more nauseous the
draught, the worse it tasted, and
the worse it emelled, the bett-r
it was as a medicine. Dried
toads, pulverized to a powder,
were long the popular pauacea
for fevers. Another was a live
mole baked in an oven. Snakes
are still given by the Chinese.
The old adage, 4'the hair of the
dog is good for the bite," was
often construed literally,-greatly,
we fancy, to the patient's
digust. The idea was that sick
ness was a distinct something
produced by witches, and it
took something terrible to drive
hi ma way. Even in our father's
day, what terrible doses they
used to give of julap and calo
mel, and how they used to pop
out the lancet on all occasions
and pop it into everybody pret
ty nearly. The idea still holds
in the heads of some people
that medicine is mostly poison,
os what is tbe same thing, in
order to be efficacious, it ought
to he poison So far is this
from the facts, that the best
medical authority now pre
scribes the simplest remedies.
U is the pfulL,r nieiit of Keid's
German Conch' and KiA
Cnre that it rontaios no poisons

nocuous, and yet it is so certain
that it will not only cure the
worst cold, but all diseases aris

whatever. The done" ran hut
