Submarine Card Game.
Incredible as it may seem, there
are two menf in Paris who can p)lay
cards under wiater. The reservoir
in which they play has a cap)acity of
about 800 tons of water, and hy
draulic and electric machines are
connected with it in such a manner
that the entire space can be illumi
nated by means of incandescent
Three or even more persons can
find room in the reservoir, and they
have no difficulty in remaining un
der water for fully five minutes.
Indeed one of the men remained
under water on one occasion for flye
minutes and twenty-seven seconds.

Dr. Miles' Nervine Cured
Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine brings rest
and sweet sleep to the tired brain worn out
with the cares and anxieties of thle sick room.
Read the folloing:
"I have a lways been healthy with the ex.
ceptin of a touch of rheumatism since my
age came on, up to the time of my husbn'
last Illness some years ago. I assisted in
nursiln y husband for nearly three montIhs
when he de parted this life and the mental
strain I think caused my trouble. Aside
from extreme nervousness my trouble comi.
menced with sore throat and neura!gia. My
physician gave me purgative doses which
weakened me very much and my stomach
for a timle seemed inactive. Mental strata
and the dormant condition of my stomach
soon told upon my general health. 1 had
little appetite arnd was soon forced to stay in
bed a greater p)art of the time. Within a
week after the time I began taking Dr,
Miles' Restorative Nervine and Tonic was
up about the house. I continued their use
until completely cured. My faith in ,r
Miles' Remedies has been strengthenedy
experience of other people, our daughterh.
lag used Restorative Nervine with ~1ni
results in a case of paralysis and a fipdt
whomi I sent a box of the Anti-Pain Pills re
ports that she has been e-mipletely cured nif
neuralgia by their use. I know of a number
of others whom yourmedicine has helped ina
large degree. I wish you conitinued success."
