May be excused from making an aw

but when the cackles for an hour OTer a

for a merchant cackling a good deal over
A GENUINE BARGAIN,

to be a doou knob BiitGAiN, It is time
somehody threw a brick or a "shoo" at
the noisy thing. There's an awful lot of
cackling about bargains going on, but
we'll but they'er all door-knob bargains,

SHE WISHED TO BE SOCIABLE.
And There Were Several Subjects Upon
'Which She Sought Information.
She puffed into a Sixth avenue elevated
ear, etout, warm, happy and rural. It
seemed to affect her that no one noticed
her, no one noticed any one nor anything.
Those who were not reading stared blankly
and gave no sign. Next to her sat a stylish,
well dressed, well bred looking young
woman. The stout lady had never before
seen a person of such evident intelligence
keep such an evenly expressionless face.
She wondered how it could be done with
so much that was interesting going on all
about. She longed to speak, for it not
only seemed unsociable to sit next another
woman in unfriendly silence, but she also
wanted to gain Jier services in interpreting
the strange sounds the gatemen uttered
when they made their little bluffs at an
She eyed the young woman in admiring
silence only a little while, and then said in
a voice that was startlingly loud:
"Air you going to get off at Fourteenth
The young woman turned a remark
ably pretty pair of slightly astonished eyes
toward her questioner and answered in a
low tone, "I go farther than Fourteenth."
The other spoke in a lower tone, but she
had already attracted the attention of half
"Well, I wish you'd just tell me when
we get there," she said, "for I'm alius
gettin lost, and Ann she laughs at me so
The young woman said ""With pleasure,"
and looked straight fihe.ul again. But the
rural lady wanted to talk.
"Ann, she told me of a shop on Four
teenth street where I could get gloves."
She stopped nnd eyed the young woman's
gloved hands resting on her parasol.
"Would you mind tellin me where you get
Several passengers giggled, bnt the
young woman answered with perfect com
posure, "Oh, I brought them from the
"The other side."' exclaimed the irre
pressible. "Why, Ann told me you could
get things cheaper over there Grand
treet, I think."
Then the passengers giggled more, and
those who were reading papers folded
"Ann," continued the stout woman,
"she's my sister, and has lived here for
years, you know. She wouldn't come out
with me this morning. Ann, she never
kind of seems to like to go shopping with
me. Pity knows I wish she would, for
I've got to buy a lot of stuff for the girls
to home. Millie, she's my oldest"
"Millie, she wants some gloves, and
Maria, she wants corsets, and land knows
what they don't want. Maria, she's just
about your build little stouter, p'r'aps.
Would you mind tellin me what size cor
sets you ask for?"
There was a breathless silence in the car.
"Here is Fourteenth street," the young
woman said. "I believe I'll get out with

History from Fiction.
The aspiration which sets the composi
tion of a nation's songs above the enact
ment of its laws has made familiar, through
a trite quotation, the idea that some of the
truest history of mankind may be found in
the realm of the imagination. Whatever
we think of Achilles and Hector, Homer
remains an interpreter of the life of Greece;
while the "Arabian Nights" afford us a
glimpse at the east which no speculations
about Aladdin have clouded or enlarged.
An important phase of Kuropean life is
made more intelligible by such a knowl
edge of Don Quixote as is possessed by an
ordinary reader even without finishing the
book, and "Pilgrim's Progress" holds a
clew to the meaning of our own civil war.
We might carry on our illustrations into
the realm of biography.
John Henry Newman has left us two
pictures of his Oxford life, a fiction and an
autobiography, and it is the first which
tells us most; even the letters, full as they
are of life and interest, seem to us to throw
less illuminating gleams on his own youth
than his undergraduate novel does. And
it would be felt by many persons with less
claim upon the world's attention than t he
great English cardinal, that if they were
to give the world what their lives afford
of deepest interest, it must be hi the form
of fictitious narrative. There is much
truth which could not possibly be ex
pressed in any other form. Contemporary
Neuralgia of the Toe.
A neuralgic pain mure or less severe ns
the base of the fourtli toe is not uncom
mon, but has attracted medical attention
only within recent years. Dr. Morton, of
Philadelphia, in 1S76 was the first to de
scrile it and to report a number of cases.
He had himself suffered greatly from it.
The attacks always come on suddenly,
lie was often obliged to remove his boot,
sometimes when walking in the street,
sometimes when riding in his carriage
and sometimes even when in company.
When on hoiseback he has been compelled
to dismount, tie his horse to a tree aud lie
on the grass, unable to proceed farther.
He found the affection much more fre
quent in women than in men a result no
doubt of the greater delicacy of women's
feet and of their weariug tight shoes.
In most cases protracted rest and the use
for awhile of quite broad soled shoes will
effect a cure; but sometimes the excision
of t he head of the fourth metatarsal bone
is necessary. Exchange.
A Daring Kleptomaniac.
Among French writers no one has car
ried the profession of the literary brigand
to such an extent as Mme. de Genlis. In
1830 her evil ways brought her into the
courts of law under very discreditable cir
cumstances. Bout, the publisher of a
series of manuals, engaged her, for a sum
of Bixteen pounds, to write a "Manuel
Encyclopedique de l'Enfance." The
manuscript, which had been paid for, was
on the point of being printed when it was
discovered to be an exact copy of a book of
the same kind published in 1820 by M.
Dasscha. I do not find it easy to under
stand the audacity of a writer who would
perpetrate a fraud of such enormity, or
the imbelility which would suppose that
It would not easily be detected.
Another time she contributed to a Paris
newspaper a feuilletou which turned out
to be a close reproduction of a romance
printed some twenty years before. Surely
the poor woman suffered from litrary
kleptomania. Gentleman's Magazine.

The Best in the World.
Senator Henry C. Nelson, of New York,
"On the 27th of February. 1883, I was
taken with a violent pain in the region of
the kidneys. I suffered such agony that
I could hardly stand up. At soon as
possible I applied two Allccck's Porous
Piasters one over each k'.diey, and laid
down. In an hour, to my surprise and
delight, the pain had vanished and I was
weil. I wore the plasters for a day or
two as a precaution, and then removed
them. I hive been using Allcock's Por
ous Plasters in my family for the last ten
years, and have always found them the
quickest and best remedy for colds,
strains and rheumatic affections. From
my experience I believe they are the best
plasters in the world."
Things Worth Remembering,
When you feel a kind of goneness about
the stomach it is a sign that your food
does cot sit well, and that you are about
to have a fit of indigestion.
When you begin to feel nervous and
are unable to sit still comforably; when
your clothes suddenly seem to lose their
fit and become too tight in places, the fit
of indigestion is surely upon you.
When this fit of indigestion is repeated
from day to day it finally resolves itself
Remember that three to 10 of Bran
dretb's Pills will cure the worst case of
indigestion or dyspepsia, or both, and
that a regular course of them, say two
every night for a week or 10 days, will
act as a preventive of either complaint.
