Tts EsinU of Merit.
When anything stuads a test of fifty
years among a discriminating people like
the Americans, it is pretty good evidence
that there n merit somewhere. Tbe
value of a medicine is best proved by its
continued use from year to yea? by tbe
same persons and families, as well as bv
a steady increasing sale. Few, if any.
medicines nave met with such continued
success and popularity as has -marked
the introducti in and progress of Bran
dreth's Pills, which, after a trial of over
fifty yeors, are conceded to be the safest
and most effective purgative and blood
purifier introduced to the public.
Ibat this is the result of merit, and
thatBrandreth's Pills actually perform all
mat is Ciaim?a ior inem, is conclusively
proyed by tbe fact that those who regard
them with the greatest favor are those
who have used them tbe longest.
Brandreth's Pills are sold in every
drug and medit iae store, either plain or

,-' Dancer In Expectorations. ..
The women of Pittsburg had a health
association recently formed. One of their
first efforts in a radical move in their work
has been to petition the proper authorities
to prohibit promiscuous expectoration.
Tbe floors of the street can and public
piaces are not to contain, it they can help
it, cuspidors for general use. If this can
be accomplished, even with an anDroxi-
mate degree of success, the gain to the
city's health will be large. One grows
giddy almost at the thought of New York
and Brooklyn so restricted. ' If merely the
elevated stairs and platforms were prohib
ited ground the women of the two cities
woukl experience deep gratitude.
In this connection the recent words of a
physician are suggestive. "The time must
come," said he, "when consumptives will
be subjected to a certain quarantine. It is
well known that the sputa from a patient
suffering with tubercular consumption is
harmless while moist. When, however,
this sputa dries and is disseminated in the
air in a fine dust it is fatal to any one
breathing it. Yet our public conveyances
are daily frequented by persons in almost
the last stages of this disease, who cough
and raise without restraint. Not half ol
them realize the danger to which they ex
pose others by so doing, and the few who
may are doubtless indifferent, in the face
of their own accepted doom. The future,
however, must show a change." Her
Tointof View in New York Times.
. noasekeepinc Girls.
It may bo true that "most girls of the
period know much more alxmt the proper
management of a bouse when they marry
than their mothers did," but this is not
the experience of the majority of men whe
marry American girls. No one is brightei
or quicker to learn tbe mysteries of house
hold work than the American girl, but in
the great majority of cases she gains this
knowledge after her marriage.
' Wherever the English system of enforc
ing training ip cooking and household
work is adopted, there the girls are found
to be adepts, but unfortunately, especially
in the west, the custom is to leave all
household work to servants. Thus the
girl grows up with no practical knowledge
of this work, which seems so easy, but
which in reality requires patient study and
much pract ice to do well. 4
So when she comes to manage a house
hold she is at the mercy of servants, who
are quick to take advantage of her igno
rance. She generally emerges the vietoi
after several years of costly experience, but
she would have been spared nil this worry,
vexatiou aud hard work had her mothei
insisted, as English mothers do, upon
equal proficiency in the kitchen and music
room. San Francisco Chronicle.
A Beooae to Ardltl.
Bignor Arditl, though very strict with
the orchestral players at rehearsals, once
when directing a Wagner programme
nnder the management of the Brothers
Gatti, took a strange delight in getting up
conversations with those near him. During
a by no means easy piece from "Tristan
and Isolde," he chose as the recipient of his
utterances the late Mr. Lockwood, the
harpist, but that gentleman did not appear
particularly inclined to reply. At length,
in answer to an oft repeated question of
Signor Arditi's, he rose and said: "Seven-
please do not talk to me eight for I can
not reply nine I've seventeen bars rest
ten or I shall mull the whole thing."
Hereupon Signor Arditi made a very low
bow, and counted the remainder of the
eventful seventeen bars with his neighbor.
Kangaroo and Barbed Wire.
A troop of kangaroos in flight affords a
strage spectacle. I have seen fifteen or
twenty thus passing through loose shrub
bery, when they looked more like an equal
number of men on bicycles than anything
else, with their bodies bent forward and
stringing along in Indian file, as is their
invariable custom. Kanguroos are won
derful jumpers, and sail over the highest
fences with perfect ease. The wire fences
now so generally in use, however, seem to
puzzle them, and they will turn from these
obstructions and follow them for miles in
search of an opening, rather than attempt
to leap them. This peculiarity is also
taken advantage of by sportsmen to their
destruction. Boston Journal.

Fonseca Holds All the Trump.
Los DOS, Nov. 9. The revived hopes of

shows that everything is tranquil.

Washington, Nov. 9. Apparently tie

done to the Texan.
