We had on board, as a matter of course,
the betting young man from Chicago. No
steamer ever sailed that did not have this
young follow aboard, and there are enough r
of them to last the Atlantic for a great
many years. He knows everything that 0
everybody thinks he knows but does nXt, f
and his delight was to propound a query, 0
and then when you half answer it to cooly 0
and exasperatingly remark:
"Bet yer a bottle of wine you're wrong." r
The matter would be so simple and one 1
of so common repu;e that immediately you 1
accept the wager, only to dnd that in some '
minute particular you were wrong, and that
the knowing youth had won. -
For instance: a
"I'hompson, do You know how many :
States there are in the Union I"
Now, any citizen of the United States
who votes and is eligible to the Presidency t
ought to know how many States there are
in his beloved country without thinking,
but how many are there who Cai say off
hand I And so poor I hmf sod answord : a
"What a question 1 Of course I know."
"Bet yer bottle ye don';."
Atid then 'I hompson would dnd himself d
figuring a very important proulem as to
whether Colorado had been admitted, and i
Nevada and Orngod, and he wou d decide a
that one had and the other hadn't, and 0
flually state the number, with great certainty 1
that it was wrong. -t
T he Chicago man's crowning bet occur- 1

"And get it into your stomach I" a
Tnere was a silence of considerable more L
than a minute. Every nian il the room had tI
been victimized by this gatherer of incon- t
siderate trilice, and there was a general (di- t
positi-m to get the better of hu in somie
way, if possible. Here was the opportunity. p
How could a nia get a glass ot water into c
his stomach witliout it going down his r

bottle of wine was wagered, and the Chica- e
go man proceeded to accomplish the sup- d
posed imnpossible feat. It was very easily t:
done. All he did wats to stand upon his 1
head on the scat that ruus around the room i
and swallow a glasm of water. Lt went to f

KIDNINY 0 OMPLAINTS.
DISEASE OF TIIE KIDNEYS.
The symptoms of an acute attack of Inflamma
tlrn of the kidneys are as follows: Fever, pain in
the small of the back, aint thence shooting down
ward; numibness of tile thigh, vomiting, usually
at tirst a deep red color of the urine, which be
comes pale and colorless as the discase increases,
anl is ischargod very often with pain and difu
culty; costivenieas, and some degree of collo. In
chronic diseases of the kidnoys tile symptoms are
pain in the hack and limbs, dryness of the skin
frequent urinations (especially at night), general I
a!rop y, headacie, dizziie" of sight, lutg entIon
ani palpitation of the heart, gradual loss oi
strengtit, paleness an". puitlness of the face, cough
antd shortness of breath.
In diseases of the kidneys the VRoRTINE gives
limiediate relief. t has never failed to cure when
it is taken regularly anti directions followed. In
many cases it way take several bottles, especially
eases of long stanading. it acts directly upon the
secretions, cielinsing and strengthening, removing
all obslrlitationsu4 and lnipurities. A great many
can testify to cases of long standing having been
perfectly cured by the.VXR rINE, even arter trying
