v AHoluKlu Pure. HV .'" HALF A CENTURY AGO. ' Philadelphia Qentleanea Drank la a Way to Astonish Their Itnsmwilaiil. Among Americana np to 1855 the use and abuse of strong drink were almost universal, bnt it certainly affected their health less injuriously than at the pres . ent time. The worry and strain of mod ern business aod social life shatter nerves now and lead to drain drinking to repair them. On the contrary, most of the excesses in the old times oame after a solid dinner, and three or four hours were spent in rest and convivial ity, tmt the amount drank was enor mous. When the exchange was com pleted, in 1833, a dinner was given, and there was some apprehension that the wine would run out, and a well known broker on the committee expressed his surprise, as the company had not aver aged more than three bottles apiece. This would be thought a very large al lowance of strong Madeira in these times. In 1853 the final audit of the account of the United States bank was complet ed, and on behalf of the government James A,., Bayard of Delaware, John M. Mason and a Kentucky gentleman named Dukes appeared. It was a mere formality, as the matter had been settled ten years before. John Young acted as clerk. The party met in the northwest chamber of the bank building now the customhouse at 11 o'clock. A bottle of brandy and six of Madeira were on the table, and after a short inspection of papers the wine was opened, and by 1 o'clock was drank. The day was warm, and a bowl of bishop was order ed, and this was made by the servant with the brandy and a flask of Cnraooa, This was drank, and the three com mitteemen went to dine with Charles J. Ingereoll about 5 o'clock. They returned, bringing a friend. A dozen Madeira were at band, and smoking, drinking and whist were in order until 13. when the last bottle was drank, and then Prosser, the cook, brought in cold ducks and a mighty lobster salad. A gallon bowl oi brandy punch was made as con ducive to digestion. A tumbler of this finished the clerk, who went to sleep and was aroused at daybreak to drink cup of coffee, and then all went down the steps and walked away in the fresh morning air, none the worse in appear ance from the night s potations. It is apparent that in a life like this it was the survival of the fittest The steady ones carried off the honors, but gout, gravel and dropsy played havoo with the others, and these complaints were charged to port and Madeira by the doctors, and so the habit of drinkmi claret and light wines came into fashion. Gambling was almost universal, and many fortunes of old Philadelphia dis appeared in this way. Philadelphia Tunes. --f Toa Follte. "There is such a thing as being too polite; For instance, there is Flum leigh. He went into a store to inquire about something or other, and there was nobody but a woman there. Be be gan by asking, 'I beg pardon, if you are not engaged' and before he oould say any more she interrupted him with, 'This is so sudden !' And, by gracious, she accepted him on the spot, and before he knew what was going on. No, sir; it doesn't pay to be too polite. " And the speaker shook his head sagely and not without a suggestion of sadness. Boston Transcript. The IitM Oaa, Financial Affair of Fraaea. The financial speech of the ex-Prime Minister M. Lou bet, in the senate, is to be posted, by order of Wat house, all over France. There are some statements in it worthy of consideration. Thus, the national debt is set down at 1,200,000, 000. It alsoappears that the difficulty of making both ends meet has greatly in creased since M. Melius secured the tri umph of his system. The court of audits has discovered 211 irregularities in the last budgetary account of money paid. By irregularities it means embezzle ments, set down under the head of " vire mentis." Among them figures the 809 spent on behalf of a minister for "cabs. and 640 a month for little "de jeuners" at Voisin's, where a min ister of justice entertained his friends. The ''virements' at the home office are set down at 650, those of the war of fice at 1,330, those of the colonial office at 3,090, those of the publio works of fice at 3,875. When M. de Freycinet was war minister, the virements of his department amounted to about 6, 000 a year. Be, as minister of publio works and war, swelled the national debt more than any one else in power since Thiers', retirement The redeem able loans were an expedient of M. de Freycinet to give employment to the publio works department London .News. , A Horrible Basplcion. Lysander Dickerson of Sterling, His., thus writes to the Chicago Journal: "In a recent issue of your paper I find an item describing at some length the moving of the old Liberty bell into its new quarters in Independence hall at Philadelphia, and a recital of the safe guards with which the historic relio is now surrounded. In this item the bell itself is described with more or less mi untunes. The article recalls to my mind the fact that some 45 years or so ago, in company with 8. J&. Dana of Wilkes barre, Pa., I visited Independence hall and naturally made a close and careful inspection of this historic- relic - At this time there was a place a foot or more deep chipped out 'at one of the outer edges. When it was exhibited at the fair, there were no evidences of van dalism. This convinces me of the truth of the story, which Is generally unbe liever to the effect that years ago the old bell was sold to an enterprising Yankee and by him worked np into trinkets. I claim have one of them. " "That's a fine, big pig, John." "Aye, sir. Gin we were a as ready tu dee as that yin, we'd doa " Judy.

"My friend," he said, slipping a half dollar into his hand, "bring me some thing to eat as quick as you can. " "Boss," said the waiter, with emo tion, "I've been here more'n a month, and you're the first man that's ever givi me a cent But," he added in a hoarse whisper, "I've managed to steal 6." Chicago Tribune. Soxae Folate A boat Wills. Do yon know that yon cannot will away your body; that a clause in your will giving your body after death to any person or institution is not legally bind ing? Your executors cannot be forced to carry out your wishes, though they may do so through deference to your ex pressed preferences. It is also important to remember that three witnesses are needed in devising real estate instead of two, as in bequeathing personal property. When a woman will, she will, de pend on 't," says the proverb. But there are so many sharp turns and short curves in the course of the law that though a woman wills to will what she will, how she will in nine cases out of ten she cannot make her will so that she wills what she will as she wills to will. New York Press. . . Pertinent Paragraph of People of Prominence Throughout the World, With the exception of the king of Denmark, Queen Victoria it the oldest reigning sovereign of Europe.

Baron Edinond de Rothschild has purchased the recently exhumed spoci mens of Roman silver works found near Pompeii, and has presented the collection to the National museum of Paris. Liuie Borden was a delegate to the Christian Endeavor convention in Bos- ton. It is two years ago since she was on trial for the murder of her father and was acquitted. The Borden mur der remains a mystery. The new Portuguese minister to the United States, Mr. Ade Sequeira Che- dim, is a particularly handsome man, about 40, with very elegant and at tractive manners. Be speaks English with only a slight trace of accent The old Paramus Dutch church at Ridgewood, N.

Ant as Biter. -Ants are terrible fltrhtera. Thev have very powerful jaws, considering the size of their bodies, and therefore ; their method is by biting. They will bite one another and hold on with a wonderful grip of the jaws, even after all their legs have been bitten off by other ants. Sometimes six or eight ants will be clinging with a death hold to one an other, making a peculiar spectacle, some with a leg gone and some with half the body gone. One singular fact is that the grip of an ant's jaw is retained even after the body has been bitten off and nothing but the head remains. Exchange. Th Pleiades, Those timekeepers the Pleiades have been used to mark the days from the most remote periods. Mr. T. W. Fewkes, describing the fire ceremonies of the Pu eblo Indians of Tusayan, says that, hav ing been present on two such occasions in 1893 and 1893? he found that the error of time ma,de by the Indians as to the 18th of November in those two years was insignificant It was the culmina tion of the Pleiades which told the In dians the proper time for the beginning Df their rites.

Texas Sif tings. H Whispered sweet Word v trader a Lllao Bush. "George, do you remember your first lovo affair?" Be tilted back in his easy ohair and nodded assent "Tell me about it, that's a good fel low," said Al. With a retrospective look In his eyes, George thureupou began: "Well, it happened when I had boy ish blue eyes and a high ambition, with a great amount of self oonfldonoe. Since then, you may observe, my eyes have grown gray, my ambition has been tempered by experience, and my self oonildenoe, if I really have any, does not so boldly assert itself. "The girl I loved was a buxom maid of 18 summers. Do not ask me to de scribe her, for shame on me I really have forgotten how she looked in those days. I know I thought her very hand some more so than any woman I have seen before or have seen since. On different occasions, with uo great amount of time intervening, I romeui ber of thinking of her as being angelic, amiable, affable, beautiful, oute, cour teous, confiding, dear, and so on down through the alphabet I told her so, too, for I always told her all my thoughts. "I may have called hor oven more names, probably did, but this, you know, is only au off-hand recital, with out reference to notes. "Well, one summer evening it strikes me it was in June I found my love in a nook beneath a lilno bush. and in the fading twilight I gathered courage to ask bur to bo mine. "She blushed deeply, her hps trom bled for a moment, then she turned her pretty face from me and murmured an answer. . "Then my boyish blue eyes flashed defiance to the world, and my heart was in a raputre, as I clasped my pret ty girl lover to me in fond embrace." And she was happy too?" Al ven tured. "Not a bit of it She freed herself, her lips were puckered into a pout, and there was a scowl on her face that gave me the toothache. " Bow dare you take such libertiesl' she hissed, and her little foot oame down with all the force she could summon. "I begged of her to consider that I had asked her to become my wife, and had she not answered 'yes?' Why, George!' she exolauned, 'I answered 'no!' "That little word sounded to me like a death knell, and with all my confi dence and ambition gone, I sunk be neath the bushes out of sight, and the twilight faded into thick, black gloom." "And that ended it?" "Yes." "What ever became of her?" Al asked. The portieres parted woman brightened the presence. "That's her," said George, and nodded toward his pretty wife. "Well," Al remarked, laughing, ' how did it finally happen?" un, ueorge replied, and he rose from his easy chair, "she didn't stick to what she said near the lilacs in the twilight "The Family Story Paper.

Atlanta Constitution, An Unhappy Combination ia a Woman - Notwithstanding her genius, Pro fessor Sonya Kovalevsky was almost mentally dependent upon a man. We have her written confession that she lectured better when Professor Mittag Leffler was in the audience. Notwith standing her solid contriubtions to ap plied mathematics, she originated nothing; she merely developed the ideas of her teachers. What is the conclusion of the whole matter? Set ting aside all partisan questions, it would seem to be this; that a mascu line head united to a feminine heart is likely to prove a very unhappy combi nation for a woman. August Century, It i Very Seductive and Had a Dlaas iron KUeet. One characteristic anecdote of Mrs. Kemble, which, so far as I know, has not got into print, may be mentioned. Two youthful friends of hers having given invitations for a picnio on the border of the Stockbridge Bowl, Mrs. Kemble, with the warm-hearted syra pathy she alwayB showed toward young people, associated herself with them in the plan, and made the entertainment much more complete than they had in tended. She engaged a band from Al bany, had a dancing platform erected and numerous boats engaged. Unfor tunately the punch, which had been subtly compounded in New York, had for the sake of economical transporta tion, no allaying Thames." The day was hot; there was a cry for something to drink, and at a fatal moment, when the person who should have superin tended the beguiling beverage was en gaged in another part of the grounds, it was prematurely poured into the punch bowls as undiluted as if Friar Tuok had presided. Its cunning smooth ness disarmed the suspicion of the wariest guests, some of whom were be trayed before the mistake was discov ered and corrected. The climax came when, after the lunch, and at a mo ment when two or three or the more unfortunate gentlemen had gone to a sequestered spot for a restorative swim, Mrs. Kemble ordered the chief boat man to onng to the little dock, pre pared for the embarkation of those in clined for a row, the largest of the boats, which had been specially decor ated for the occasion. The man he i tated and stammered. . "No words!" imperiously com manded Mrs. Kemble, in Lady Mac beth's tone. "Bring the boat!" After several vain efforts at remon strance, he said deprecatingly, "I thought maybe as one of your gents was in the boat naked and drunk, you would rather not have it brought just yet" Those who nave heard Mrs. Kemble read Falstaff and Pistol can imagine the mixture of amusement and disgust on ber face at this rejoiner. I have called this anecdote characteristic, but I need not say it is characteristic of one little side only of ber noble being. The impetuous generosity, the glowing sensibility, the unfreigned religions-1 ness of this child of nature, of whom heredity and environment made an ac tress, can be told only in the story of her life. Century for August A, N. Tonipkins, a Resident of Oregon City, Relate a Moat Won derful Story. From th KiittrprlM, Orexon City, Or.) A representative of the Oregon City Enterprise visited Mr. A. N. Tompkins, the well-known carpenter and builder, of Oregon City, and finding him hard at work, asked if he was the man who had been ill of rheumatism. Receiv ing au affirmative answer, the reporter asked if he would have any objections to making a statement of his case, how he was cured, etc, for the boueflt of the public "No objections at all," said Mr. Tompkins, "I have suffered with lum bago for years, haviug bad spells off and on. . Sometimes it would lay me up entirely. Whenever I did any heavy lifting, or got wet or caught cold, I would have a bad spolL Home times I would be so bad that I oould uot straighten up. I was always look ing for something on which I oould oouut for certain relief, if not absolute cure. I tried many physicians. One nearly succeeded in making a mor phine fluud of me by injecting mor phine into my body to relieve the pain he oould not euro and was not honest enough to admit All these medicines and doctors did me no good, some oven as in this case, doing me harm. While working on the Barclay building some months ago I had an at tack. I immediately went to Char man & Co.'s drug store and told Mr. Charuian to give me a box of Pink Pills. Having bought them, I oom inenoed taking them at once, and after the first day I experienced relief, and in two weeks I was entirely welL I had in that time used part of the second box. Being at the home of my dangh ter-in-law, Mrs. Lena Tompkins, and hearing her complain of rheumatism, I gave her the balance. "Now, I have worked right along, and in spite of the wet weather aud the fact that I have a heavy cold just now, I hare no iudioation of the presence of my old disease, and any one of the three things (heavy work, wet weather aud a cold) which I now have combin ed, would have given me a bad spell heretofore. I consider Dr. Williams Pink Pills a great remedy, and I be lieve thoy have absolutely cured me. At least, if tbey have not, it is only a question of continuing the remedy long enough, and if I ever have a return of the pain I shall fly to Pink Pills." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a condensed form, all the elements nec essary to give new life and riohness to the blood and restore shattered nerves. They are an unfailiug specific for such diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial paralysis, St Vitus dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous head ache, the after effects of la grippe, pal pitation of the heart, pale and sallow complexions, all forms of weakness either in male or female, and all dis eases resulting from vitiated humors in the blood. Pink Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be sent postpaid on re ceipt of price (50 cents a box, or six boxes for 3.60), by addressing Dr, Williams' Medicine Co., Schenectady, N. Y. Honrs school.
