TO MISIKESS JIEM,
The busy man oppressed
with cure, kaviug the details of
his calliBg to look after, and
having no time to devote t his
own personal concerns, is apt
to neglect his personal health.
But let the active business man
try evt r so hard to forget him
self, there are some rules of
nature that won't forget him
This was the case with Crosby
White, a leading grocer in
Peoria Ee caught cold and
neglected it, and it settled on
his kidneys. In the hustle and
bustle of business he hoped
that it would wear awav, but it
did not; on the contrary, this
is just what it did not do, and
at the end of three years Mr.
White was a very 6ick man.
In the meantime he had tiiad
everything, but every time he
took cold he grew a little
worse, and the malady settled
upon his kidneys If he had
died, people would have said,
"he had Bright's disease of the
kidneys." But he heard of
Reid's German Cough and
Kidney Cure, and he began
taking it To his surprise, for
he was wholly despondent, he
began getting well, and it was
not long before he was perfect
ly sound, and he is to this day.
Some sneer at the idea of a
Cough and Kidney Cure being
united in the same medicine,
this because most cough cured
contain opiates, which aTe
harmful to the kidneys. Reid's
German Cough and Kidney
Cure does not, but stimulates
the action of the kidneys.
There are thousands of cases on
file in cur office just like Mr.
White'H, He can be addressed
at Peoria, 111., where he is
still in business at the Beehive
Grocery, cor. North Adams
and Jackson streets.

There i- no dancer of a cold resulting
in pneumonia when Chamberlain's Couch
remedy is used as directed "for a severe
cold." It effectually counteracts and
arrests any tendency of a old to result
in pneumonia. This fact was fully prov

Photographing active I'abies wosdiflicult
before the introduction of instantaneous
methods, and this piece of work was so
unusually perfect and its subject so popu
lar that 300,000 copies were sold a num
ber seldom reached by any j hotographer,
even of the queen herself. The attitude
became fashionable among mothers who
wished to be photographed with babies,
and the present empress of Russia was one
of many who adopted it.
The original photograph is kept in one
of the many huge albums of photographs
of the royal family in the studio of the
artist, Mr. William Downey, who is, by
the way, one of the "characters" of Lon
don, and ii referred to by the Budget aa
the "Grand Old Photographer."
The Fatepot Pet a Oreat Bag After All.
Few people have any notion of the queer
things that are need in medical practice at
the present day. Not the least extraor
dinary among the remedies employed by
physicians is iowdered cockroaches. From
this insect, dried and reduced to a brown
dust, great relief is obtaiued by dropsical
patients. The dust thns obtained contains an
active principle called "anti-hydrophin,"
which is most effective in the stimulation
of the kidneys and serves as a check to tha
complaint mentioned. Cockroach powder
is also used as a vermifuge.

In September, lss5, John P. Barnes,
zoologist of Central Park museum New

in the annals of natural history. It was
caught in a common basket trap o.T the
north const of Cape Cod. Usually the
lobster wiighs from one to eight pounds
rarely twelve to fifteen, tut the uionstei
of the Massachusetts bay tipped the tam
to twenty-three pounds. A curiisitv col

Queen Victoria t nveil Roclim' Statae
of the Late llmprror Frelf rlrk.
The last work f iir Ei!gnr Iloehm le
fore his death, which occurred recently in
London, was a statue of I he late Emperoi
Frederick of Germany. It was unvei'ed
recently by Queen Victoria, in the prese nce
of a distinguished gathei ing in St. George's
l-napel, iuus r. She was act oinpanied
by the Prince of Viles. the uke and
Duchess of Counaught. Princess Margaret
and Trince Arthur of Connaught, and
Prince Henry of Battenlerg. General
von Wittich represented the German Em
peror. Several floral gifts had been for
warded to the castle, and these were laid
near the Lincoln Chail. The (Jueen'i
wreath consisted of tastefully arranged
white camellias, chrysanthemums and
other blooms and foliage, and was tied
with broad white w k riMon. That sent
by the Empress Fred erick was formed ol
palms and flowers. The Emprers Augusta
Wife of Kaiser Wilhelm, aent a wreath
similar to the Queen's, iu white silk bowt
bearing its name and the imperial crows
stamped in gold. The largtst and moel
noticeable wreath was that from the Em
peror William. It was made of thickly
woven laurel leaves, interspersed with in
numerable bunches of golden berries and
bound with broad white silk, the . "Weia
senburg." Worth," 'Koniggartx,, and
"fc'edad"' being embossed in gold lettering
upon the folds of the ribbon and the bows
and adorned with monogram and crown.
The Btetue represents the late Emperoi
in uniform, wearing the robes and insigna
ol the garter, with his hands folded upon
the bilt of a sheathed sword his love of
peaceand prowess in war being thus hap-'
pily exemplified and is an admirable
work of art. Kir Edgar Boehm was born
