reasons for trying Dr. Sac;e's
Catarrh Remedy. In the f.rst
place, it cures your catarrh
no matter how bad your case,
or of how long standing. It
doesn't simply palliate it
aires. If you believe it, so
much the better. There's
nothing more to be said.
You get it for 50 cents, from
But perhaps you won't be
lieve it. Then there's anoth er
reason for trying it. Show
that you can't be cured, and
you'll get $500. It's a plain
business offer. The makers
of Dr. Sage's Remedy will
pav you that amount if thy
can't cure you. They know
that they can you think
that they can't. If they're

at last, in her perfect tameness, he no IoFr
Ho spent a great part of his time in
sleeping but ever, like a spider in its web
with mind alert, that he mixht not let Ue
liverance escape him, should any chance to
pass within the sphere described by the
horizon. He had sacrificed his shirt to
make a flag, which he had hoisted to the
summit of a palm tree stripped of leaves.
Taught by necessity, he had found the
means to keep it spread by stretching it
with sticks, lest the wind should fail to
wave it at the moment when the hoped-for
traveler might be traveling the waste of
It was during the long hours when hope
abandoned him that he amused himself
with his companion. He had learned to
understand the different inflections of her
voice and the expression of her glances;
he had studied the varying changes of the
spots that starred her robe of gold.
Mignonne no longer growled, not even
when he seized her by the tuft with which
her terrible tail ended tb count the black
and white rings which adorned if., and
which glittered in the sun like precious
gems. It delighted him to watch the deli
cate soft lines of her snowy breast and
graceful head. But above all, when she
was gamboling iu her play he watched
her with delight, for the agility, the youth
fulness of all her movements filled him
with an ever fresh surprise.
He admired her suppleness in leaping,
climbing, gliding, pressing close against
him, swaying, rolling over, crouching for
a bound. But however swift her spring,
however slippery the block of granite, she
would stop short, without motion, at the
sound of the word "Mignonne."
One day, in the most dazzling sunshine,
an enormous bird was hovering in the air.
The Provencal left his panther to examine
this new visitor; but after waiting for a
moment the deserted sultana uttered a
"Blessed if I don't believe that she is
jealous!" he exclaimed, perceiving that her
eyes were once more Lard aud rigid. "A
woman's soul has ;ussed into her body,
that is certain!"
The eagle disappeared in the air, while
he admired afresh the rounded back and
graceful outlines of the panther. She was
as pretty as a woman. The blonde fur
blended in its delicate graduations into the
dull white color of the thighs. The brill
iant sunshine made this vivid gold, with
spots of brown, take on a luster indescrilw
ble. The Provencal and the panther
looked at one another understanding!-.
The lieauty of the desert quivered when
she felt the nails of her admirer on her
skull. Her eyes gave forth a ll:ush like
lightning, and then she closed them hard.
"She has a soul!" he cried as he lteheld
the desert queen in l.er repose, golden as
the sands, white as their blinding luster,
and, like them, fiery and alone.
"Ah! liut it ended as all great passions
end through a misunderstanding. Each
thinks the other guilty of a falsity, each is
too proud fur explanation, and obstinacy
brings about a rupture."
"I dou't know how I hurt her, but she
turned on me like mail, and with her sharp
teeth seized my thigh. The action was not
savage; but fancying that she meant to kill
me I plunged my dagger into her neck,
he rolled over with a cry that froze mj
blood; she looked at me iu her last strug
gles without anger.
"I would have given everything on earth,
even my cross which then I hail not won
to bring her back to life. It was as if 1
had slain a human being. Aud the soldiers
who hail seen my flag, aud who were hast
ening to my succor, fouud me bathed in
'"Well, sir,' he went on, after a mo
ment's silence, 'since then I have been
through the wars in Germany, Spain, Rus
sia, France; I have dragged my carcass
round the world; but there is nothing like
the desert in my eyes! Ah! it is beautiful
" 'What did you feel there' I inquired
" 'Oh! that I cannot tell you. Besides, I
always regret my pant her and my clump
of palm trees. I must be sad of heart for
that. But mark my words. In the desert
there is everything and there is nothing.'
"'Well!' he continued with a gesture of
impatience, 'it is God without man.'"
Translated from the French of Balzac for
the Boston Glolie.
Mrs. Astor'a Pet Charity.
When Mrs. William Astor gave the Can
cer hospital to the suffering poor of the
metropolis she created for herself a thank
ful nook in every citizen's heart. It was
her own gift. She personally appointed
the board of trustees and visiting physi
cians, and no matter how pressing social af
fairs may be she never misses her Wednes
day call with her sweet floral gifts and
her dainty delicacies. Every year when re
pairs are necessary 6he furnishes the funds
to do the work aud makes up what may
be lacking to balance the expense accounts.
New York Recorder.
Itran Yl"ter will Clean Curtains.
The soft, pretty Madras curtains which
lend themselves so readily to graceful
effects are discarded by some housekeepers
because they are so readily soiled, and, it
is supposed, are not easily cleansed. Bran
water without soap is a perfect bath for
these draperies. Use a wooden pailful of
bran to a wash boiler of water. Let it boil
half an hour or more, strain part of it, and
use for washing the curtains; let the rest
continue to boil, then strain it and use for
rinsing water. Shake the wrinkles out of
the curtains as much as possible and hang
them up to dry.
The working girls' clubs are different
from the Working Women's society, which
has for its object the raising of women's
wages. The clubs seek to teach her to
make the most of the wages she has. The
Thirty-eighth Street Working Girls' club
of New York is honored as the pioneer. It
has 308 members. It is the outgrowth of a
cooking class started by Miss Grace Dodge.
It has spread until Miss Dodge is now
president of an association of working
girls' clubs which represents 10,000 women.
Twist bread is a favorite product. Divide
one pound of dough in three equal parts.
Sprinkle some buckwheat flour on the
board; roll each piece with the hand, un
til it is about twelve inches long, thick in
the middle, tapering to a point at each end;
plait them, using plenty of buckwheat to
keep them from sticking. Bake on pans,
after they have risen in a towel. Bakers
bake them on the bottom of the oven, but
this cannot be done with a range.
The well bred, well read American lady,
be she girl cr woman, requires only the
protection which her own refinement and
common sense provide from the men of her
nation, and needs the intervention of no
chaperon to- insure respectful demeanor.
In fact, the chaperon institution is consid
ered by many cultured people an insult to
the true womanhood of the American irl
and to the honor of her fellow men.
