FECT FITTING SHOE MADE. It fits on the foot like a glove on
the hand. It is not cumbersome like the button shoe that has four or
five thicknesses of leather over the instep, but tY' shoe has but one
thickness and presents a seamless, glove-fitting front, comfortable to the
foot and pleasing to the eye.
This shoe differs materially from the "old side lace." That had from
18 to 24 eyelets, double cord, and pulled on sideways, while this shoe has
but eight eyelets, pulls on straight and is held in place by a low gore,
inserted on each side of the shoe, which is covered and protected by the
top, and is adjusted to the ankle by lacing on the inside, giving to the
foot a very slim and small appearing form. This shoe cannot break hi
the bach and neither are you inconvenienced by constantly re-sewing
buttons or repairing button holes. This shoe is being placed in all good
towns, aud its success and popularity are assured. We feel confident if
you will try a pair of these shoes you will not be satisfied with any others.
"Would" be pleased to have you call and make a personal inspection
of this shoe aud think it will interest you.
Yours Respectfully.

"Under the microscope," says Mr.

that as animal and vegetable matter rots
away, swarms of ferments come into
existence. For example, in a drop
water the flesh of a dead water flea was
noticed in commotion while the writer
was engaged on this paper. Thousands
of U shaped vibrions were living upon
it. All were in brisk motion, straighten

nutrition. Our rivers and ponds would
become factories of deadly poisons, and
all tho earth's soil would be contami

nuto plants and animals did not attack
,dead organic matter and cause its ele

The Elevator in European Hotels.
The "lift" is not displayed ostentatious
ly in the great German houses. It is he
hind iron doors, to be detected only by
inspection, and is moved by clanking
chains. Ths deliberation of the proceed
ing is its most distinguishing character
istic. You stand in the great hall of the
hotel where a reconnoissance has located
the laboring "lift" and silently await de
velopments. Everybody else has the
greatest plenty of time. Presently from
the unknown interior iron doors fly open,
and a soldierly looking servant with
brass buttons on his cap, preoccupied
with his responsibilities, steps forth with
an air of majesty. The doors clang as
they swing, and the lift is there, rather
primitive but elaborate in construction.
Perhaps there may bo five passengers
ready to get aboard. When four have
taken position the master of the elevator
waves the fifth backward with an awful
air of authority, and if the rejected one
is an American urgent to go up at once,
he is told peremptorily that there are
places "only for four." The iron doors
are banged, the engines heave and the
massive machine moves. Safety is con
sulted! Here is a masterly mechanism
that might swing a pair of elephants of
the size of Jumbo, but an attempt to lift
at once more than four persons would be
regarded as an affront to the empire.
The thing's impossible! The French
have the same elevating methods. There
is usually an iron gate as well as an iron
door to the ascenseur in France, and in
some of the first clas3 establishments
they will risk taking up as many as five
passengers at a time. The chains that
arc rigged for the security of this multi
tude of irresponsible things are of links
of wrought iron two inches in diameter.

Savins a Life.
An old soldier, a lieutenant during the
civil war, was walking down the street
of a town when he was accosted by a
fellow, half soldier, half beggar, who
made him a most reverential salute.
"God bless your honor," said the man,
whose speech betrayed him for an Irish
man, "God bless you and long life to
"How do you know me?" said the lieu
tenant. .
"Is it how do I know you, your hon
or?" responded Pat. "Good right, sure, I
have to know the man that saved my life
in battle."
The lieutenant, gratified at this trib
ute to his valor, slipped a fifty cent piece
into the fellow's hand, and asked him
"God bless your honor aud long life to
you," said the now doubly grateful vet
eran. "Sure, an' it was at Antietam,
when, seeing your honor run away as
fast as your legs would carry you from
the rebels, I followed your lead and ran
after you out of the way, whereby, un
der God, I saved my life. Oh, good luck
to your honor! I will never forget you."

most intractable symptom, and adds
greatly to the suffering experienced. In
the treatment, physicians have been

Professor German See, of Paris, has
long been engaged in study to learn
what elements in milk render it such an
admirable agent to stimulate the kid
neys, increase the flow therefrom and
hence prove of such great service in
dropsies. As a result of his investiga
tion he is convinced that the one im
portant element is sugar of milk. Acting
upon that tneory no selected twenty-five
patients with heart disease, in all of
which there was more or less dropsy.
To each he gave 100 grammes of the
sugar of milk a day, dissolved in two
quarts of water. In all these cases a
marked effect upon the kidneys was felt
within from twenty-four to forty-five
hours, and the dropsies diminished rap
idly, and almost all such swellings dis
appeared altogether after a series of
treatments lasting from six to eight
days. This discovery is likely to prove
one of the most important which has
been made in the medical world for
years. Boston Herald.

Apo and Looking Glass.
A looking glass is a mvstery, an ob
ject of intense interest to many animals,
and it is often very amusine to watch
their maneuvers. Professor O. Robert
son describes the behavior of a large ape
in the Jardm de3 Plantes.
He was in an iron cage lording it over
some smaller monkeys. Ferns and other
things had been thrown between the
bars, which the ape attempted to seize.
At length a small hand looking glass,
with a strong wooden frame, was thrown
111. ine ape got hold of it and began to
brandish it like a hammer, when sud
denly he was arrested by the reflection
of himself in the glass.
After looking puzzled for a moment,
he darted his head behind the glass to
find the other ape, which he evidently
supposed to be there. Finding nothing,
he apparently thought that he had not
been quick enough in his movements.
So he raised and drew the crlass nearer
to him with crreat caution, and rlirni.
with a swifter dart, looked behind: and
again finding nothing, he made the at
tempt once more.
He now grew very angry, and began
to beat the frame violently on the floor
of his cage. Soon the class was shat
tered, and pieces fell out. Again ho was
arrested by his own imago in the piece
of glass still remaining in the frame, and
he resolved to try again. More carefully
than ever he began, aud more rapidly
than ever was the final dart made.
His fury over this last failure knew
no bounds, and he crunched tho frame
and glass together with his teeth till
nothing but splinters remained. Youth's

A Dutch Tjalk.
She was massively built of varnished
oak, with bows so bluff as to be almost
square, a straight sided box, made, like
all Dutch craft, to slide over the water
rather than through it, and with im
mense wing like lee boards on each side
to let down and supply the place of a
keel when going to windward. A tall
mast bore a lofty narrow headed main
sail with a short curved gaff, and a fore
staysail from the bow. The great rudder
bore along its upper edge a grotesquely
carved and gayly painted lion couchant,
tho most common of all the rudder decor
ations and of as much importance as the
familiar figurehead in seagoing ships.
Hull and spars were brightly varnished,
with casings of polished brass, and rings
and scrolls of red and blue paint wher
ever there was room. The staves of the
water barrels were green and white, and
marvelous landscapes were painted on
the ends. There was a neat raised cabin
at the stern, gayly ornamented in green
and yellow, with little white curtained
Qower decked windows, through which
one caught glimpses of a spotless doll's
house interior, with shining pots and
pans and quaint shapes of blue and brown
earthen vessels. Of course all the items
of household life cooking, washing, the
baby's toilet, and soon were performed
