Neuralgia and Extreme Nervousness*
EVER since I was eighteen years old
until I learned of Dr. Miles' Restora?
tive Reincdlos. I suffered from sick
headache and extreme nervousness and dys?
pepsia. In time heart disease developed. I
was treated by several doctors with no re?
lief. Severe palpitation with pain In left
breast, shortness of breath, and smothering
spells made me most miserable. I pro?
cured I)r. Miles' Restorative Nervine and
New Heart Cure and took them alternately
as directed. Improvement began at once
and Increased so rap
Idly that Inside of sis
mouths I Increased
thirty six pounds in
weigh';. All pain in
the heart is gone, and
the nervousness haa
wholly left me."

THE BUCK JUMPER.

of Different Countries.
"How does it fool to rido n back
Many years ago wo asked this ques?
tion of a well known rough ridor on
first meeting him.
"You'll bo surprised when you try,"
was tho reply. "Tho smash of his hoofs
on tho ground is what you'll notico
principally. It comes liko a pistol shot,
und it's enough to mako your jaws crack.
Another thing is that his head goes out
of sight altogether, between his foro
legs. But tho real job is when ho goes
in for side work and tries to ontch his
tail liko a young dog. Even if you 6tick
to him then, you'ro lucky if ho doesn't
work tho saddle over his head."
" You don't mean without breaking
tho girths?" we exolaimed.
"Certainly," he replied. "Ask any
mun who bus broken wild horses whether
a bad ono can't'jump out of tho saddle'
If yon can sit him till tho third 'buck,'
you aro supposed to bo ublo to sit him,
but let mo say that yon don't always
get to tho third."
As we have sat (and also been thrown)
by buck jumpers since then wo can in?
dorse unreservedly every word of this
authority on tho subject. To say one is
surprised is a mild term to employ. On
our first attempt our chief astonishment
was at the infinitesimal time it took to
reach tho ground after tho horso began
to "go to work."
Many who know anything of riding
in this (so called) horso loving nation
of ours will think they have ridden a
"buck'* often and require no informa?
tion on tho subject. Be assured, how?
ever, reader, that it is an exceedingly
rare thing. Wo bnvo known men who
have broken horses on colonial cattle
stations for 20 years and huvo never
seen a real buck jumper.
A reason for this is tho fact, which
all do not know, that only horses of
certain strains can "buck." A vicious
horse may rear and fall back on his
rider, or ho may roll on tho ground and
proceed to devour him?and theso hab?
its aro no doubt unpleasant and not to
bo recommended (in a child's pony, for
instance), but if ho haul's got tho right
breed ho will never "buck."
Ono of tho innumerable popular de?
lusions about horses is that buck jump?
ers which aro exhibited in public, liko
Buffalo Bill's, for instance, lwvo re?
ceived careful training in tho art. Any
ono who has broken horses will know
that in their wild state they require no
instruction whatever in this direction.
The whole urt of breaking consists in
teaching them not to "buck." This is
why our colonies supply the buck jump?
ers of the world. Time there is money,
and hands cannot long bo spared for
breaking. Tho 2-yonr-old is driven into
tho yard (having possibly nover seen a
man before), roped up, cast, and while
he is on tho ground a saddle and bridle
aro worked on to him. A rough rider
is put up, ho drives tho spurs well
home, and thcro yon havo an inveteruto
buck juniper for life
Put yourself in the horse's place, and
you will hardly wonder at it. He is by
nature morbidly nervous, and man is a
tiling almost unknown till now. Tho
horrid black object on his back is to
him tho foul fiend incarnate, and the
first step in breaking he supposes to bo
tho final dissolution of tho universe
In Australia it used to bo no uncom?
mon thing that a man who had a colt
to sell got him broken in two hours bo
foro tho sale. The wholo process cost
just 10 shillings.
The rough rider was hoisted up, and
the colt went through his repertoire of
contortions, being occasionally lushed
from behind with a stock whip to in?
sure ull traces of vico being thorougldy
eradicated. By tho timo of tho sale he
was naturally so exhausted that all at
tonipts ut "playing up" wero (for tho
time being, of course) out of tho ques?
tion. Tho mark of the saddle whs point?
ed out as proof positive that ho conld
bo ridden, and ho changed hands, guar?
anteed thoroughly quiet and broken to
Unless ho was a first class rider tho
experience of tho buyer on mounting
him next day would bo both unexpect?
ed and exhilarating.
Who aro the best riders in tho world?
Tho Australians say they are, and they
aro supported by tnost com potent judges.
South Americans claim to bo ns good,
and they tiro certainly good riders, but
not so scientific. They aro satisfied if
they can stick on and oven resort to
putting tho spurs between the girths for
a foothold. Australians would scorn
I such moans. If good riders, they will
sit correctly oven under tho most diffi?
Can buck jumping bo cured* It can?
not, or rather wo should modify this
statement by saying that it can. It can?
not because buck jumping isnn ingrained
vice, tho result of fear, and.once learned,
is never forgotten. It can, liko all other
vices, ho subdued by steady work nnd
careful handling, but recollect that,
onco these nro left off, it may return.
At nil events such a "reformed" ani?
mal can never bo ridden by a lady.?

Tho following funny dialogue recent?
ly occurred in an English country
church when tho rector was catechising
the children. "What is your name?" ho
asked a strapping girl of 1?, the only
daughter of the village boniface. He
received no relpy. "What, is your
name?" said the minister, in a more
peremptory way. "Nin o' yer fun, par?
son. Yo knn ma nenmo verrn wool.
Duon't ye say, when yo'ro at our house
on a neet, 'Bot, bring mo a pint o'
yell?'" Tho congregation, in spite of
the socredness of tho pluce, was on a

To tho monastery of tho Grand Char?
treuse women, us a rulo, are iuexorably

hnving had tho privilege of seeing tho
Carthusians (monks of tho order) at
home. A story is told of a French
daughter of Eve, blessed with oven a
greater share of curiosity than that pos?
sessed by tho generality of her sex,
who, having heard from her husband
and brother of their lato intoresting
visit to the monastery, tried by every
means in her power to effect an entrance
there, but nil to mi avail. Determined,
however, by hook or crook, to succeed,
sbo at last hit upon tho happy idea of
presenting herself there dressed as a
man, managing to persuade her husband
to allow her to do so, and to take her
with him on his next visit

did most willingly. Needless to say

The Canadian Gazette tells an amus?
ing story of one who wns ton quick at
drawing an inference. It happened that
a Glasgow* professor who was visiting
Canada with thu British association in
1S84 was desirous of Bcciug Konicthiug
of northwestern life, and for this pur?
pose repaired to an Alberta ranch.
I fixed him up as well us I could, the
rancher says, but ho complained that
ho did not like sleeping with his clothes
on. So after tho first night I stretched
a cowskin across tho shack and told
him ho might undress if ho liked. Ho
took off most of his garments and put
on a long whito nightdress. In the
morning my foreman came in while tho
gentleman was still sleeping. Observ?
ing tho white nightdress, ho said in a
"Ratlxir sudden, eh?"
"What?" I asked.
"Tho deatli of the old man."
"He's not dead; he's asleep," I ex?
"Then what's he wcarln them b'ilod
clothes for?" was tho reply. "Never
saw a chap laid out in b'iled clothes
afore 'cept ho were dead. "
Tlie Search For Truth.
In tho search for truth no aid is so
effective as tho ever roady spirit of.ac?
tivity. Ho who postpones putting what
ho knows into practice \iutil ho knows
moro will find his journey a loug and
discouraging one. Carlylo well says:
"Conviction, were it never so excellent,
is worthless till it converts itsolf into
conduct. Nay, properly conviction is
not possible till then, inasmuch as all
speculation is by nutnro endless and
formless. Must true is it, as a wisoman
teaches us, that, 'Doubt of any sort can?
not be removed except by notion.' On
which ground, too, let him who gropes
painfully in dnrkrC2S or uncertain light
and prays vehemently that the dawn
may ripen into day, lay this other pre?
cept well to heart, which to mo was of
invalnablo service, 'Do tho duty which
lies nearest, to thee,' which thou know
est to be n duty. The second duty will
already have became clearer."
Enormoui Lifting Power.
Tho shelloss limpet pulls 1,084 times
its own weight when in the air and
about double when measured in the wa?
ter. Fleas puil 1,403 times their own
(lead weight. The Mediterranean cockle,
Venus verrucosa, can exert a pulling
power equal to 3,071 times tho weight
of its own body. So great is tho power
possessed by the oyster that to open it a
force equal to 1,810.6 times tho weight
of its slu Hess hotly is required. If the
human being possessed strength as great
in proportion as that of these shellfish,
tho average man would be able to lift
tho enormous weight of 2,070,000
pounds, pulling in tho same degrco as
tho limpet. And if tho man palled in
tho Bnme proportionate degree ua tho
cocklo he would sustain a weight of no
less than 3,10.0,500 pounds.
