A. Drnmn er'a Experience In an Elermtor
Th at Fell Thirteen Storle.
"No," add Charles A. Seel, a Boston
business man, as he started to climb up to
the fourth story, "I never ride in eleva
tors. I suppose I am foolish, but I had an
experience in Minneapolis once that makes
me afraid to enter one. It was in 1880, and
wasafrash young man traveling for a
house in Providence, In a large office
building in that city, which was being
built by a friend of mine, there were two
elevator si afts, and in them were placed
the finest ( levators that Lad been manu
factured t p to that date. With the ele
vators was an air cushion device which
was newly patented and which had never
been tried. One day I happened up into
the buildir g, and my friend asked me if I
wanted to take a fast trip in one of the elevators.
"I was i;arat for anything those days,
and I said t hat I wouldn't mind. The man 1
who invented the air cushion was going to
give a practical demonstration of its value,
and had one of the elevator cars hauled up
to the top i t that thirteen story building,
lie proposed to get in the car and let it
drop, and 1 e wanted some one to go down
with him. The car had been dropped two
or three times with nobixly in it, and the
cushions hid worked beautifully. That
afternoon the final test was to be made.
The inventor, a couple of reporters and
myself wws to go down with the car. I
had giveu My promise that 1 would take
the trip, an 1 although I would have given
an tuat 1 pitssf.ssi.il to stay out ot the car
after 1 found what was expected of me, I
screwed my courage up to the sticking
point rathe than be laughed at, and when
the inventor said everything was ready I
1 he door was locked a moment after I
entered, and when I saw that there was
no eseiipe I forced up a sickly sort of a
grin cud looked around. I was so scared
that niv legs shook under me, and the re
porters wen in exactly the same physical
coudition. The inventor puttered around
fixing everything in shipshape and we sat
on the seat and trembled in unison.
"Finally t rerything was ready, and the
inventor gave the word. The rope that
held the ctr up was cut, and the trip be
gan. It is utterly impossible to describe
the horrible sensation that I felt when that
car shot downward. My head swam and
black and red spots danced before my eyes.
The swiftness with which it fell was in
credible. It actually fell so fast that our
bodies could not keep up with it, and we
rose from the floor as if going in the oppo
site direction. I was faint and sick and
oppressed w.th the most abject fear and
horror. Thtt two reporters were in the
same shape, and the three of us were con-
Caectahat v e would be dashed to pieces
at the bottom of the shaft. The inventor
was calm, tl ough very pale.
"The trip took but a few seconds and
every foot th at we fell the car increased
Its niomentu m. It seemed that we fell for
a century an d I prayed that the bottom
would soon lie reached so that we might
be relieved of our agony. As I said, I was
perfectly confident that I would never
leave the cat alive, and was almost willing
to die if the ;'earful falling motion would
only cease. I was just about to faint when
the speed of the car slackened gently, and
finally it st jpped at the bottom of the
shaft so slowly and gently that the water
in a glass tlat sat on the floor of the car
was not dist irlted or rippled.
" e got o it hurnedlv and the cushion
was pronounced a success. I went to lied
and staid th re for a week before I recov
ered my normal condition, and now when
I get in an levator thnt feeling of dread
comes over tie and I can't help it. There
fore I always walk." Buffalo Express.

A much-Harried Woman.
Mrs. Fowler, of this city, was married
last January to her sixth husband, and
strange as it may seem, five of them died
exactly two years from their inarriape
day. Her present husband has been sick
for the last four months with chronic
jaundice, and was given up by four of our
best physicians; as a last resort he began
using Sulphur Bitters, and yesterday told
our reporter that they bad saved his life,
smilingly saying that he guessed Mrs.
Fowler would be unable to take a seventh
better half for some time to come. Ex-chanpo.
He Wanted Ills Itiglitn.
"I say," said a frieud the other day,
you are an ild hand ut it. I have only
just got married, and don t understand
much alKiut the business. I should like
to know whether a married man has any
rights left when he takes unto himself a
"Richts Yes, lots. He has a right to
pay all t he b lis"
"Stop'. I i ieauthis. Let me give you
an instance. Every box, every chest of
drawers aud every portmanteau, and it
fact every a ailahle receptacle of every de
scription, w fluffed full of my wife's prop
erty, and wh'-n I want to put away a few
cuffs and collars"
'"Hold hard. I know what you mean.
Listen, youni; man. If your bedroom wer
200 yards long, lined from the floor to the
ceiling with shelves, and you wanted a
place to stow away a couple of shirts, yru
couldn't find a nook that wasn't full of
hairpins, scent bottles, odd gloves, pieces
of ribbon, odd feathers and artificial Cow
ers, little bits of tape and buttons galore,
with pins and needles thrown in, bo just
accept the inevitable: Wrap your personal
property in a a old newspaper parcel and
hide it under the bed."
He grinned ironically, but passed on a
sadder and a wiser man. London Tit-Bits.
Prevention Better Than Cure.
Many persons are afflicted with skin
eruptions, boils or ulcers. BraDdreth's
Pills taken freely will in a short time ef
fect a complete cure of all such troubles.
Ulcers of Ions; standing have been cured
by them. Carbuncles have been checked
in their incipiency by them. The worst
fever cores, bed sores, acd the like have
been driven from tbe skin by them.
Only begin in time and a few of Brand
retb's Pills will prevent many a sickness.
Brandreth's Pills are purely vegetable,
absolutely harmless, and safe to take at
a iv time.
The Stem of the Caetua.
If you ask that convenient fiction, the
Man in the t treet, what sort of plant a
cactus is he will probably tell you it is all
leaf and uo stem and each of the leaves
grows out of the last one. Whenever we
set up the Ma i in the Street, however, you
must have n iticed we do it in order to
knock hiui do vn again like a iiinciiin next
moment, and his particular instance is no
exception to t te rule; for the truth is that
a cactus is I radically all stem and no
leaves, what 1 xks like a leaf being really
a branch slicking out at an angle. The
true leaves, if there are an-, are reduced
to mere spines or prickles on the surface,
while the braiiches in tiie prickly pear and
many of the ornamental hothouse cac
tuses are flattened out like a leaf to per
form foliar functions. Grant Allen in
Popular Science Monthly.
