"Would Be Si T oon.
Several yean ago, when that best of
table companions, Don Piatt, was alive,
we had arranged to have a little dinner
together at an np town cafe. I was on
time, bnt Piatt was late. "When he did
come, he look ?d grave and said in the
low and well modulated voice so memo
rable: "I am sorry, but the simple troth is I
discover that I am afflicted with an ail
ment that wil. not jield to treatment

Though al w lys on my guard for a joke,
the sadly sole-nn face of my friend ab
solved him tjis time, and with all the
sympathy I could throw into my words
"Why, my dear Piatt, don't you be
lieve it! Wh:it is this malady?"
"Alas, old nge! I set out to walk here.
It was too mi.ch of an undertaking."
The timeliness of tliis reference to the
infirmities of age is accentuated bv sev
eral impor tart cases in court that have
depended upc n the incurability of snor
ing. This vexatious affliction to wliich
the human family is heir has increased
in this country with alarming rapidity
since the advent of la grippe. Its changed
character is recognized by progressive
physicians, and the definitions found in
the dictionaries are now admitted to bo
quite wide of the mark. Webster inti
mates clearly, by tracing the etymology
of the word, that the nose is the impor
tant organ ii: producing the noise during
This belief must have been ceneral in
the last generation, for we all know that
a clothespin was the remedy best thought
of in practice. That treatment was no
more severe than cupping and far more
direct in application. But during the
past five or ix years, or since the French
form of influenza fastened upon us, there
has lieen a marked and alarming increase
in the nunbor of people addicted to
snoring. It is a peculiarity of this mal
ady that the sufferers are not confined to
those attacked. Like the delirium tre
mens, the cornet habit and other obnox
ious forms of nervous unrest, snoring
awakens an antagonism in the human
breast that mere medicine is powerless
Those wh j fail to ngree with me as to
the gravity, tho seriousness or the time
liness of th.se remarks are requested to
communicate by mail, and they will be
made acqu tinted with a caso in point
that will ariply convince them.
An acquaintance living on West End
avenue is n w suffering from the most
thoroughly developed case of snoring
that has appealed to medical science in
recent timt s. His life up to the past
year has been exemplar-, but it is the
plain, unvarnished truth to say that he
now looks upon himself as a victim to
the inadequacy of medical science to
reach his c;ise. His wife has left him,
taking the children with her, and while
it is unlikely that the case in Wis
consin will be taken as a precedent for
procuring a divorce there can be no
doubt that tho couple are irrevocably
separated. That husband was deeply at
tached to 1 is wife. He took the best of
medical advice. He even visited that
city of phvsicians, Philadelphia, in the
hope of restoration to a normal method
His med.cal experience was extensive.
He began with anodyne and ended with
a serious contemplation of deadly Btrych
nine. He tried oxides and bromides,
nerve foods and antifats, Iactics and
laxatives, iodides and chlorides, acids
and alkalui, oatmeal and cornmeal. Al
ternating with these he took beer, baths
and blisters. Knowing that belladonna
made larte the pupils of the eyes, he
searched f w a medicine that would have
the effect of a mydratic upon the nos
trils. Then he went to Dr. Curtis and
had the cartilage of his nose removed.
Somebody told him about the Prince of
Wales bei ag cured of insomnia by the
use of a hop pillow, and he tried that
without e:Iect. His case was incurable!
He grew desperate. He resorted to at
rophine, c unphine, benzine bombazine!
At this stiige his wife left him, and one
by one the servants in the house gave no
tice. Thus was a household wrecked be
cause the head of it snored.
We all regard with serious apprehen
sion the threatened approach of epi
demics fr m the old world, and we re
member that from the same old world
was brocght the Bad, sad infirmity of
snoring a gift that we could have done
without find would have been happier
had they kept at home.
Now that a recognition of the deplor
able seriousness of snoring is forthcom
ing I woidd soberly suggest that some
philanthropist offer a prize for the spe
cific that will antagonize and' destroy this
Eunderer of homes and destroyer of hap
piness. The remedy must be real and
the cure effected permanent.

The Proprietor's Only Bemedy.
A cert dn clerk in a Detroit establish
ment, who has money of his own, but
holds a position for the looks of the
thing, recently became impressed by the
idea that he was working too hard, and
he went to the manager about it.
"I canie to see you," he said to that po
tentate, "about my duties here."
" Wha i about them?" inquired the man
ager. "I want fewer working hours."

Dolly Madison's Youth and How She Met
Her Distinguished Husband.
Dolly wm the second of the six chil
dren and vas named after her mother's
aunt, Mrs. Patrick Henry. She was a
bright, pretty child, whoe interesting
chatter and winning ways won hosts of
Her parents, who were members of the
Society of Friends, in accordance with
their religion, denied their children all
ornaments and accomplishments save
those of "a meek and gentle spirit."
Until she was 12 years old Dolly lived
quietly in the country and attended the
village school where most of her edrca
tion was received. Every morning be
fore starting out her sunbonnet was
sewed securely under her chin by her
careful mother and with the addition of
a white linen mask to still further pro
tect her complexion and long gloves she
trudged along the country roads to the
schoolhouse, a grotesque litfio figure.
Very fond of pretty things, her grand
mother, with whom she was a great pet,
often made her presents of old fashioned
jewelry, wliich. not being allowed to
visibly wear, she sewed into a little bag
and wore around her neck under her
Her father was one of the first of his
sect in Virginia to become donbtful of
slavery, and his scruples finally led him
to liberate his slaves, sell his plantation
and remove to Philadelphia. Here he
engaged in business, but as his efforts
proved unsnccosfful after several years
l'ie family became very much reduced in
In the meantime Dolly had been grow
ing daily in grace and beauty. At 19
she was tall and slender, with a "deli
cately oval" face, well formed features,
a "dailingly fair" complexion and blue
eyes of "much sweetness under her de
mure Quaker cap."
John Todd, a wealthy, good looking
yonng lawyer of the same religion, soon
fell a victim to her charms and made
her an offer of marriage which she de
clined, saying she never intended to mar
ry. Hearing of her refusal her father,
who was ill at the time, immediately
summoned her to his side and told her
it was his greatest wish to see her well
provided for before he died, that it would
make him very unhappy if she persisted
in her refusal, so like a dutiful daughter
she reversed her decision and became the
wife of John Todd. ,
Her marriage proved to be a very hap
py one. but after the brief space of three
years her husband died, and she was left
a widow at 22. Rich and very attract
ive, she hsul many admirers.
James Madison, at that time consid
ered an uurecluimable bachelor, chanced
to see her one day while 6he was out
walking with a friend and was so much
impressed with her beauty and grace of
bearing that he did not rest until he had
obtained the promise of an introduction.
A few day3 later she met him at her
own house, and in the first interview cap
tured his heart. She wore on this occa
sion a gown of "mulberry satin, with a
silk tulle kerchief over her neck and on
her head a dainty cap, from which the
curls would escape."
An engagement soon foil" - ft . J in
September, 1794, Mrs. To,: .. Z pa
rried by the enamored Madison sev
eral friends, left Philadelphia for I
wood her sister's estate in Virginia
where the marriage ceremony was to
take . place. The journey occupied a
week, but the weather was delightful,
and it was accomplished without icsi
dent. Friends and relatives from far 5ssS
near were assembled to greet the bridal
party, and many of them remained for
days after the wedding to keep up the
festivities. For momentos of the oc
casion the girls cut the mechlin lace
from Mr. Madison's shirt ruffles, and
amid showers of rice the laughing bride
and groom drove off to spend their
honeymoon at Montpelier.
The close of the year found them back
in Virginia, where, at her husband's re
quest, Mrs. Madison laid aside her Quak
er dress and for the first time in her life
began to enjoy society. New York
A Scathing; Reply to a Bishop.
At a clerical meeting the subject of the
separate mode of administering the com
munion came up. One of those present
said that when there were a large num
ber present at the celebration he often
preferred to give the exhortation to sev
eral persons together, as it made the
feast more of a communion than when
each was isolated from his fellow wor
shipers by the separate mode of adminis
tration. Bishop Wilberforce, with sar
castic mien and tone, replied, "I under
stand you, Mr. Eardley, to prefer admin
istration by wholesale?"
Mr. Eardley rejoined, "My lord bish
op, when the divine founder of the feast,
addressing the 12 apostles, said, 'Drink
ye all of the cup,' I do not think that
even Judas Iscariot would have dared to
sneer at him as a 'wholesale administra
tor.' " The bishop's usual readiness de
serted him, and he had nothing to say.

Beginning Late In Life.
"I Btill maintain that a person enter
ing a profession late in life has no future
to speak of," said one gentleman to an
other as they sat chatting in a suburban
train speeding along the lake front. "I
really do not. see how that is relevant,"
was the answer. "Every one is sure of
the present; no one of the future, no
matter what time of life he or she has
reached. When this woman graduated
from the law school a few years ago, the
fact that you shook your head and said
that it was absurd made me interested
to see what she, whose children were
grown when she began the study of law,
"In five years she has built up a busi
ness which makes her independent finan
cially, which is more than usually ac
complished by able and brilliant young
men. Whatever her future may be, her
present is all right, and she has abun
dantly demonstrated that a woman may
begin life in a professional way when
she has reached middle age and make a
success of it. I really didn't think she
would, but she has, and in doing so has
demonstrated what can be done by any
woman providing she lias grit, energy
and fair ability. More often late than
early in life women find themselves with
out occupation or means of support, and
it surely is an unmixed good if they can
take up some congenial occupation by
means of which they can make a living."
The Blue of Sapphires.
Star sapphires are generally of a gray
ish blue tint, and the star is exhibited in
its greatest perfection when looked at by
the light of the sun or a candle. The
sapphire is found of all tints and shades
of blue, but the color which approxi
mates to the shade formerly called "bleu
du roi" is the most valuable. A really
fine sapphire should appear blue by arti
ficial light as well as by day. This stone
is found in crystals generally of much
larger size than the ruby. The name
"sapphire" is perhaps the only one which
runs through all languages with very
6light alteration the Hebrew name
sapphir, the Clialda sapirinon, the Greek
zafnros, the Latin sapphirus, etc. Cin

amuses her and doesn't hurt the neigh

will perhaps espouse a man who will be
able to wash the dishes and attend to tne
knitting, and thus harmony and domes

Da. O. C Osgood,
" Castoria is the best remedy for children of
which I em acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will oonsidor the real
interest of their children, and use Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
Da. J. F. Kjkcheloe,
" Castoria Is so well adapted to children that
I recommend it as superior to any prescription

" Our physicians in the children's depart
ment have spoken highly of their experi
ence in their outside practice with Castoria.
and although we only have among oar
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it.
