Thb French crista, as tbe Indianapolis
Sentinel observes, ""ill hsve scarcely
come to a he-id before Gernwny will be

indication that tbe government will soon
be beaten in tbe rrichstag and that event
will be followed by an appeal to the
country. The army bill is the rock on
which tbe government prty has split and
it defeat seems absolutely certain. Of
course ni one can predict what the result
of the election will be. But ore thiog is

to the politicians that this vote wields
the balance of power in lenst fivo im

two months a goo.1, dual of quiet work
has been going on by which a unity of

those who were not. Il would be im
possible 10 enumerate here the minor and
local offices which li'ivu been tfl-cted by
this movement, but It may be reasonably
expected that the friends of Governors

herents of the cause for better roads) are
not unconscious of the quiet work that
has bten done in their behalf.

the bishop's liking for tilings Anglican,

A Dream of Childhood. .
Ill the summer of 18G3 we were spending
a few months at Dunkerque. The English
consul at the time was Sir John, then Ma
jor Pringle. We saw a good deal of the
family and one day during a walk over
the dunes, after we had been talking of
those "Ixidiugs, unsanctioned by the will,
which teach us to beware," Major Pringle
related the following curious fulfillment
of a dream: When a boy of fifteen he
dreamed that be nut with a strange acci
dent that he h:ul fallen, in fact, into the
crater of an active volcano and was only
rescued from his perilous position by
means of ropes with great difficulty after
many hours, it seemed, of durance.
The dream was so very vivid and cir
enmstantial that it made a great impres
sion on the boy's mind, and he mentioned
it to several people. Years passed away,
when Priugle chanced to lie in Sicily, and
here be joined a party of young English
men in making the ascent of Mount Etna.
They attempted too close au examination
of the crater. Pringle lost his footing and
was precipitated into a cnplike depression
from which it was impossible for him to
extricate himself, iu this terrible predica
ment the recollection of ins dream flushed
upon him. Eor years be had never thought
of it, but now the horrible nightmare was
reproduced in all its fearful realism. After
a long and anxious delay he was rescued
by means of ropes, precisely as he had been
in his dream. Temple liar.

Sarsaparilla Perfectly Cured.
Great mental agony is endured by
parents who see their children Suffering
from diseases caused by impure blood, and
for which there seems no cure. This is
turned to joy when Hood's Sarsaparilla is
resorted to, for it expels the foul humors
from the blood, and restores the dis
eased skin to fresh, healthy brightness.
Read the following from grateful parents :
" To C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass. :
"We think Ilood's Sarsaparilla is the most
valuable medicine on the market for blood an
skin diseases. Our two ctiiliren suffered terri
bly '.villi the
Worst Form of Eczema
for two years. We had three physicians in
that time, but neither of them succeeded In
curing them or even in giving them a little
relief At last we tried flood's Sarsaparilla
and in a month both children were per.
as a standard family medicine, and would not
be without it." Mk. and Mks. M. M. Solleb.
