AN ALPENA MIRACLE,
*ERS. JAS. X. TODD, OF LONG RAPIDS.
DXSCUDS HER CRUTCHES.
9n an Interview with a Reporter She Re sC
vieW4 Her Experience and Tells
t"e Isai Canso of the Miracle.
(Prom te Argus, Alpena, Mich.).
We have long known Mrs. Jas. M. Todd,
#f Long Rapids, Alpena Co., Mich. She has i
been a sad cripple. Many of her friends w
tnow the story of her recovery; for the bone- 0
%t of those who do not we publish it to-day.
light years ago she was taken with ner- W
taus prostration, and in a few months with
museular and indammatory rheumatism. It a
affected her heart, then her head. Her feet &
became so swollen she could wear nothing h
an them; her hands were drawn all out of b
shape. Her eyes were swollen shut more c
than half the time, her knee joints teribly W
swollen and for eighteen months she had to u
be held up to be dressed. One limb became 83
mitirely helpless, and the skin was so diy
and cracked that it would bleed. During
bese eightyears she had .been treated by a
score of physicians, and has also spent much
ime at Ann Arbor under best medical advice.
All said her trouble was brought on by hard
work and that medicine would not cure, and l
that rest was the only thing which would
sase her. After going to live with her daugh- b
ershe became entirely helpless and could
iot even raise her arms to cover herself at
sight. The interesting part of the story fol- h
bws in her own words:
"I was urged to try Dr. Williams' Pink n
Kills for Pale People and at last did so. In
bree days after I commenced taking rink
Pills I could sit up and dress myself, and
Miter using them six weeks I went home and
sommenced working. I continued taking
the pills, until now I begin to forget my
irutches, and can go up and down steps a
without aid. I am truly a living wonder,
walking out of doors without assistance.
"Now, if I can say anything to induce. ei
hose who have suffered as I have, to try
Pink Pills, I shall gladly do so. If other la
ike sufferers will try Pink Pills according to
lirections, they wil have reason to thank
od for creating men who are able to con- ?
uer that terrible disease, rheumatism. I p:
ve in my own neighborhood recommended Y
Pink Pills for the after effects of la grippe,
and weak women with impure blood, and w
Vith good results."
Mrs. Todd is very strong in her faith in the et
eurative powers of Pink Pills, ax.d says they
have brought a poor, helpless cripple back to
lo her own milking, churning, washing.sew
tag, knitting and in fact about all of her t
household duties, thanks to Dr. Williams'
Dr. Willams' Pink Pills contain all the ele- .
nents necessary to give new life and richness I
so the blood and restore shattered nerves. si

go," Marcus Loring appended. "Your
dads are too old to be driving over th e s
country after school-ma'ams."
"Where is she 2" Wade Loring in- os
qulired, lazily. q
Wade had "clerked it" in a large2 u
town, and wore better clothes than
any fellow in West Cary, and held id
very complacent opinion of himself.

"And what does she look like?" b<
He was smoking a cigarette.
"If she's good-looking, you know, al
T might think of it."
"Pease hired her," said Mr. Olds, h
"and he's the only one that's seen bi
her." ; c
Mr. Pease was looking at Wade hi
Loring with shrewd eyes, which
twinkled a little. g
"Wal," he said, drily, "she ain't w,
much to look at. A leetle too tall in a
the first place, and kind o' big-j'inted

"Ex-cuse me," said Wade Loring, to
with a laugh. "You'll have to con- di
vey my deep regrets to Malvina
~'etcher, Burt, my boy." s
But Burt Olds followed him out ol nc
the barn, looking anxious. He stood as
in some awe of Wade-of his self-con-.
fident air, his dressiness, his popu- tz
larity with the girls. n
"If one of us has got to go, Wade, m,
you'd do me an immense favor"- hr :
'"I can't do it, my boy," said Wade, i
decisively. "Drive fourteen miles and
fourteen miles back again with an old b1
frump? That isn't me I" in
'"It will use up a day about," Burt in
isisted, "and I'm so busy with my in
onions I can't spare a day. If my Ie
crop's going to amount to anything,
it's got to be attended to right along, a

"Have a cigarette?2" said Wade.
"No? Well, Ican't do it, Burt. Sorry, a,
you know, but really I couldn't." i<

The Pacific Ocean may be reckoned
o include 60,000,000 square miles, or
aore than one-third of the total area
f the earth's surface. It extends
hrough nearly 135 degrees of latitude,
r three-eights of the world's circum
erence-a stretch of 9000 miles from
orth to south. From east to west it
aries from an even greater length to
ess than fifty miles. If confined by
he smallest possible length of boundary
ine, it would form a round pond 9300
ailesin diameter. The deepest sound
ng made by the Challenger expedition
-as in the Pacific, between the Caro
ines and the Ladrones, and was 4475
athom3, or 26,850 feet: a greater depth
han the height of any mountain in
ie world except three. A still deeper
ounding was made from the United
1tates ghip Tuscarora, of 4600 fathoms,
27,600,) at the entrance to the Sea ovt
)kotski; that being probably the
teepest reliable sounding ever made.
The .acific Ocean has not been ex
lored nearly so thoroughly as the At
ntic, and generalizations from the
omparatively few statistics available
aay be subject to considerable inaccur
,cy; but, putting together the recorded
oundings, and taking into account an
stimate of the depth based upon the
wiftness of the tide wave, it seens
irobable that the average depth of the
'acific may safely be put at 3000
athoms, (18,000,) or nearly 3J miles.
'his gives the entire contents of the
'acific as nearly 232,000,000 cubic

aile may be got from the statement

eighs over sixty-two pounds, the

A funny Incident occurred at a
hoir rehearsal in one of the fashion
ble East Side churches not long ago.
'hey were preparing for the follow
ag Sunday morning a beautiful se
ction, the first words of which were
I am a Pilgrim." It so happened
hat the music divided the word pil
rim and made a pause after the first
llable. The effect was most amus

I am a Pil-," and stopped. The

nd when the bass came thundering
with the like declaration, "I am a

We, who tranquilly enjoy the fruiti
of the great deliverance from the hor
rible and universal plague of smallpox,
see and know so little of It as not to be
able to form any just conception of the
monstrous proportions of the scourge
when unchecked. The average'death
rate from it throughout England was
such that if applied to the present popu
lation it would give 70,000 per annum:
in London alone before 1804 the an
nual dea'ths were 2,018 in a population
of 1,000,000; in 1890, in a population of
4,000,000, there was just one -death
from smallpox. In the year 1860 there
was not a death from it in Massachu
