Neuralgia and Extreme Nervousness.
EVER slnco I was eighteen-years old
until I learned of Dr. Miles' Restora?
tive Remedies, I suffered from slclc
headnclio and oxtremo nervousness and dys?
pepsia, lu time heart disease developed. I
?was treated by several doctors with no re?
lief. Scvero palpitation with pain in left
broast, shortness of breath, and smothering
spells made me most miserable I pro?
cured Dr. Miles' Rcstoratlvo Nervine .and
New Heart Curo and took them alternately
as directed. Improvement began at once
and increased so rap?
idly that inside of sis
months I increased
thirty six pounds in
weight. All pain in
the heart is gono, and
the nervousness has
wholly left me,"

at the side. The back Is very close Utting,
however, having a seam in the middle or
being cut whole, according to fancy. Rc
vers have disappeared to a great, extent, tho
jacket buttoning up to the collar, which
to be fashionable must l)e high and daring.
Sometimes it is turned down upon itself
in tho form of seal laps, tabs or a plain
band. The collar may lx? cut separately und
sowed on tho garment or may Ins cut in
ono with It. Novelty demands that it shall
be lined with fur, mouflon, chinchilla, er?
mine and other light kinds liclng pre?
The sleeves arc close to n point well
above the elbow, above which there is n
moderate fullness. When the sleeve is in
ono piece?that is, without an outside seam
?It is necessarily less tight than when If
Is in two pieces. It is ornamented to match
tho body of the jacket.
Straight sacks show the same effects in
collars and sleeves, although tho latter nro
sometimes loose, gathered into a deep cuff
at the wrist. The sack itself is most often
laid in two or three plnlts back and front.
Tho sketch shows a little girl's coat for
demlscnson. It is of red and black mixed
cloth nnd Is mounted in deep plaits on a
yoke of black velvet. At the two front
corners of tho yoke nro bows of velvet fas?
tened by paste buckles. The sleeves have
cuffs of black velvet and are also orna?
mented with coquilles of the cloth. The
collar and ruoho are of black velvet.

Over tho II 111 From Winter to Summer.
I hnvo ran about tho United States n
good donl for tho last 80 years and havo
made memory notes of Buch olimatio
peculiarities as havo conio under my ob?
Tho place having the widest range of
temperature of any with which I am
familiar is Fort Keogh, in tho Yollow
stouo valley. Not infrequently m the
winter tho mercury rambles down to SO
degrees below zero, and it has been
known in Kummer to climb up to 120
degrees above. Hero is an extrcmo range
of 170 degrees, and yet people manage
to live very comfortably there the year
round. In tho early summer tho grass
on tho plains and hills turns brown and
yellow, and all green vanishes from the
wido landscapo except whero a fringe
of cottonwood trees skirts a water course
It is n peculiarity of tho extrcmo high
temperature in the arid regions that you
do not perspiro at all?that is, yon do
not 6cnsibly perspire. Tho moiHturc is
all evaporated from your skin as fast us
it is formed by tho extreme dryuess of
tho air. The heat is not nearly so op?
pressive, however, as it is at a tempera?
ture of 80 or !)0 degrees along tho At?
lantic seaboard. If yon are indoors or
under tho shade of a tree, you aro quite
Anything that will break tho ficrco
rays of tho sun is snfficicut to relievo
you from nil oppression from the high
temperature. Traveling some years ago
across the hot, billowy plain of tho groat
basin of tho Columbia with a camping
party looking up n roulo for a railroad,
wc came to a hugo columnar rock of
black basalt. Tho day was intensely hot.
Wo stopped tho teams, and, throwing
ourselves down on tho shady side of tho
rock, wo recalled tho phraso in tho Biblo
about "tho shadow of a great rock in a
weary laud" and realized that a littlo
shade meant ns much to tho people of
arid Palest i no as to us tired travelers in
Tho hottest place in tho United States
is unquestionably Death valley, in
southern California. It is about 200 feet
below tho sea level and is rimmed
around with black, buro mountains.
Birds flying across this valley in tho
heated season often drop dead. Borax
is found here, but tho mining processes
cease in tho heat of midsummer. I read
somcwhero of n party of men who en?
tered the valley in July, knowing noth?
ing of tho deadly heat, and who pre?
served their lives by lying all day in tho
water of a little stream that canicout of
the mountains and was soon dried up in
tho ficrco rays of tho sun. They were
glnd to cacapo under the cooling shades
The rainiest place in tho United States
is Neon bay, on tho strait of Fuca, in
;ho stato of Washington. It actually
rains every day in tho year, and tho
total annual precipitation is nearly 100
inches. There is an Indian reservation
on tho bay. Tho natives have a very
pretty knack of making ornamental
basins and carving wooden bowls, which
mey decorate with high colors.
The most remarkable climatic barrier
in the United States is that of tho Cas?
cade mountains, in Washington. In win?
ter timo tho railway train toils up tho
eastern slope of these mountains between
walls of snow higher than tho roofs of
tho cars in n long winding lane scooped
out by the rotary plow. Once through
tho tunnel on tho Northern Pacific, or
over tho switchback on the Great North?
ern, yon suddenly leavo winter behind
you, und, whirling down tho western
slope of the mountains, in less than an
hour you meet the full spring. The grass
is green, waterfowl swim on tho rivers
und bays, the crows are holding their
annual conventions in the tree tops with
much oratorical clamor, and when yon
arrivo nt Tncoma you find the flowers
blooming in the dooryards. The chaugo
seems magical and is as great as if yon
should start from Chicago in January
mid travel to the gulf of Mexico, yet tho
wholo distance you have traversed to
bring about this wonderful transforma?
tion is less than 100 miles.
Tho mast peculiar climatic region
With which I am familiar is tho Puget
sound basin, in the state of Washington.
It is separated from tho oceau on tho
west by tho ragged snow clad range of
the Olympic mountains, and its eastern
boundary is tho still loftier range of the
Cascades. Tho sound is connected with
the Pacific by the broad strait of Juan
de Fuca, and up this strait, pours a great
volumo of moist air, brought by the
Japan current from far out to sea. Tho
mountains of Vancouver island on one
sido tuid tho Olympics on the other make4
of tho strait an enormous funnel, and
the moisture Inden winds aro condensed
against tho cold, snowy ranges on cither
hand und are precipitated in frequent
showers upon the shores of tho sound.
It rarely snows thero, but, it rains a lit?
tle almost every day from October to
Juno. Tho result is to produce a dense
vegetable growth in the forest consisting
of immense trees?firs, hemlocks,spruces
and cedars?and of undergrowth so
dense that it is almost impossible to
force your way through it without hard
work with nu ax. A St. Paul man of
my acquaintance went out to that region
to sco what he called his farm. He owns
a tract of laud fivo or six miles from
Olympia, the capital of tho state, and
had often boasted ahont that farm to his
acquaintances. He set out from Olympia
on horseback to view the land, but after
three hours' hard struggle in the forest
ho turned back without even getting
sight of his possessions, and was follow?
ed as far as tho clearing by a cougar,
which hastened his progress by its dis?
mal and menacing howls.?Chicago

thousauds who huvo rsed this remedy

I take care of health is
before it is utterly and
[irretrievably gone. The
I man who works on and
on, utterly heedless of
health and too busy to
occasionally take a little
necessary medicine, is
committing suicide as
surely as if he turned a pistol on his heart.
Such a man dies by little degrees. First a
little indigestion nnd a little neglect. Then
loss of appetite. The bowels get clogged
and the blood receives poisons instead of
healthy nutriment. Old, inert tissues in
flesh, muscle, nerve and brain are not re?
placed by new. The whole body gets stale.
The very sleeping-room of a man in this
condition is filled in the morning with un?
wholesome odors as if it had been occupied
by a decomposing corpse. It has been oc?
cupied by a man half-dead. The poisoned
brain refuses to sleep and hates to work.
Then comes the resort to the hypodermic
injection of morphine and?speedy death.
All this may be prevented by the use of
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It
corrects all disorders of the digestion,
makes assimilation perfect, fills the blood
- with the vital elements that make new tis?
sue, builds healthy flesh, firm muscles,,
strong nerves and active brain cells. It
drives out impurities and disease. Thou?
sands of men in all walks of life have testi?
fied to its wonderful merits.
It's an insult to your intelligence for a denier
to attempt to palm off upon you n substitute for
this world-famed medicine. You kiw.u what you
want. It's his business to meet that want. When
he urges some substitute he's thinking of the
larger profit he'll make ?not ol your welfare.
Slum ail such dishonest dealers.
The man or woman who is regular as clock?
work is seldom troubled with disease or
mental or bodily lassitude. Dr. Pierce's
Pleasant Pellets arc a safe, sure, speedy and
permanent cure for constipation. One little
Pellet" is a gentle laxative, and two a mild
cathartic. They never gripe. You will have
reason to regret it if you let a dishonest
druggists induce you to take a substitute.
