CATS IN OUR BLOCK.
vasrlptlon of the Different Feline. Tba
Make Life Unendurable.
Piil's cat, just across the alley, ia the
worst in the neighborhood. His style of
rclJtectnre is gothic, with a . broad
fact da His voice is deep and grewsome.
Kolody hears the beast on a stormy
nigl.t It is only when the moon shines
with splendor and the air is still that
Phil's cat lifts np its voice. Then, with
stealthy tread and phosphorescent eyes,
he Wps upon the fence, palls out all the
staples and with one leg against the
swell begins to howL That is Phil's
H ) is a sidewalk cat by day and a
fence cat by night. And then, too, he
is o ie of these vanishing cats. Men

with tightly drawn faces have leveled
at his form all sorts of missiles, bnt so
far a is known nobody has ever hit him.
Thero is something bulky and meaty
about, the beast, yet so agile is he that
with a simple reef in his back he has
been able to slip through knotholes in
the ft nee when the storm of bootjacks
and bottles from neighboring windows
interrupted his guttural oratorio. Two
years ago Phil's cat possessed a melodi
ous voice as voices run with cats. But
strict attention to business and a praise
worthy persistency in breaking the soli
tude of the night have put reeds in his
throat and made his appearance on the
fence more a matter of public concern
than the soulful courting of representa
tives cf the animal kingdom.
Hiriim Bostwick's cat across the street
is a vt ntriloquist. He is so big that he
looks -ike a goat. The beast has fooled
Phil's cat more than once. Old Bost
wick is the ward fool. A member of
the In liana street gang hit him with a
piece t'f lead pipe several years ago and
he never got back the 6ense he lost that
night. Ever since then he has been
kicking ring hats off the sidewalk on
All F xils' Day and trying to build a
new fi.ngled washing machine. He has
got a frreat cat, however. The beast is
of the roof variety, and possesses the ex
traord.nary power of being able to dis
tribute its voice to all parts of the yard
without lifting a claw from the shingles.
In the dead of night, when the lights of
the city blazed only here and there,
Bostw ck's cat would climb to the roof
of the house by way of the hencoop and
the woodshed and then howl blithely.
Sue !i uncanny noises, coming as they
did nei jly every night, would unbalance
a Btronger brain than Bostwick's.
O'MiJley, the switchman in the St.
Paul yrds, lives in the rear of Dobson's
house, half a block up the street. O'Mal
ley doesn't like cats. He says the best
place t put them is under a gTapevine.
Last Sunday O'Malley started out to
take the life of a brindle looking cat
which had been sneaking about the
kitchen for a month or more. He hadn't
got through with his job last night.
First ho shot at the beast and blew away
a portion of its head. The cat turned a
somersault, yelped once or twice and
disappeared. The next day O'Malley
found the cat on the roof of the dog
house. This time the switchman stole
upon the animal and hit it with a coup
ling pri. The cat yawned, shook what
was left of its head and then darted
under the sidewalk. When evening
came and O'Malley was splitting kin
dling v ood for the breakfast fire he be
held a r air of green eyes blazing at him
from th9 open door. The ax shot out
from his big hands. There was a com
motion on the threshold and a dark ob
ject rolled out into the yard with a sav
When morning came O'Malley found
one of the haunches of the brindle cat
lying near the woodshed. The keen
blade of the ax nad divorced it from the
body, lint the cat would not die. Al-
O'MALLEY AND THE BRINDLE LOOKING CAT.
though screly disfigured and somewhat
at a loss to adjust herself to the position
indicative of deep thought, the beast
again dri,gged itself about the house.
This was on Friday. This week O'Mal
ley will n ake another effort to rid the
neighbor! ood of the animal.
These &e some of the cats in the neigh
borhood. It is likely that every neigh
borhood has them. But if O'Malley
keeps his 'rord there will be one less by
the time the bells toll for church next

.Reliable nedteal Aid..
We clip the following from the Rocks
Only those who have suffered, and
whose lives have been suspended in the
troubling balance between life and death,
can realize how the afflicted grasp at an
opportunity to be cured. If we cannot
move without pain, eat without suffer
ing, and obtain rest in sleep, of what use
is life to us? Happiness without health
is sn imoossibility, and all the pleasures
of life become dim and unreal. The ob
ject of life without hopes and aspirations
fades rapidly as disease reduces and death
apt. roaches. How many people realize
the above facts yet pay no attention to
that which undermines their health. Hu
man life is too short to be made miser
able by diseases that are curable, and it
is in this connection we wish to siy a
word concerning Dr. Fruth, of New York,
whose advertisement is no doubt familiar
to the readers of the Gazette. He has,
by superior knowledge and various ex
perience, acquired special skill in the
treatment of certain ailments that phy
sicians in general practice could not ex
pect to possess. We may also add that
his dealings with the i ftl cted are henest
and conscientious, but we, as is our cus
tom, witbeld this endorsement of him
until we had good reasons to know that
he is justly entitled to all that is claimed
for him as an experience d phvsieian and
an honorable gentleman, worthy of what
ever confidence that miy be reposed in
him. His recent visits here bave been
beneficial to his ptienis, and we have ne
hesitation in cemroendiDg him to those
who haye failed to find relief from other
