Every year we gather from far and
near a host of pretty things
for gift buyers. Those that
you like most are likely to
be the least expensive, and
there's no one to object if
you only come to look. It
is not a bad idea to buy
early, because shrewd
shoppers usually get away
with the best long before
We enumerate below a
few of our Christmas novel?

from muscular rheumatism. I tried every
known remedy, consulted the best physi?
cians, visited Hot Springs, Ark., three times,
spending siooo there, besides doctors' Mils;
but could obtain only temporary relief. My
flesh was wasted away so that I weighed
only ninety-three pounds; my left arm and
leg were drawn out of shape, the muscles
being twisted up In knots. I was unable to
dress myself, except with assistance, and
could only hobble about by using a cane. I
had no appetite, and was assured, by tho
doctors, that I could not live. The pains, at
times, were so awful, that I could procure
relief only by means of hypodermic Injec?
tions of morphine. I had my limbs bandaged
in clay, in sulphur, In poultices; but theso
gavo only temporary relief. After trying
everything, and suffering the most awful
tortures, I began to take Ayer's Sarsaparilla.
Inside of two months, I was able to walk
without a cane. In three months, my limbs
began to strengthen, and in the course of a
year, I was cured. My weight has increased
to 1G5 pounds, and I am now able to do my
full day's work as a railroad blacksmith."

At 10 o'clock on Wednesday night, at
tho resldenco of Dr. J. B. Foster, 518
West Salem avenue, a sad and terrible
accident occurred, in which Mrs. Foster
was fatally burned.
Her husband had rotired early, while
?he Bat up engaged in doing somo fancy
needlework. About 10 o'clock she went
to the basement for some coal, and, in
pasting the open Franklin stove, the
lawn wrapper which she wore oaught
fire, but she did not dleoover the fire
until she bad reaohed the basement,
when she hurriedly ran up the stairs to
the room In which her husband was
sleeping, loudly screaming for assist?
ance. Tbo doctor awoke to find his
wife enveloped In flames, and, in bis
excitement in trying to tear from her
body the burning ciotheo, his hands and
arma were burned until the akin all
peeled off and hung down over his
fingois. About this time her little
daughter appeared on the aoene and
threw a pitcher of water over her
mother, which extinguished the flames.
Mrs. Foster was terribly burned about
the face, arms and the upper portion of
her body. Drs. Uale, Jones, Fry and
Bawllnga were sent for, and did all they
could to alleviate the suffering of the
atll.cttd ones. The burns on the arm
are ao deep that it 1b feared that the
arteries are affeoted, and may result in
their broaking and tho patient bleeding
to death. It la hard to conjecture what
the reault will be, owing to the serious?
