IP When a 'baby comes Into this -world he is going to have a struggle to keep his foothold in the difficult places of life, and battle against the misfortunes that will probably beset him. No matter how well off his parents may be, they, can't insure him against misfortune. The best they can do is to start him with a srood. healthy, vigorous constitution. A mother who wants to bequeath her baby a good store of strength and hardihood ought to keep herself in the best physical condition during the tin e hor little one i expected. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip tion has been a wonderful blessing to moth ers and their children. It gives strength to the special organism concerned in matern ity; it purifies the system and imparts healthful vitality to the nerve-centres. It makes the coming of baby safe and com paratively painless. It .is the only medicihe in the world de signed by a regularly graduated physician and skilled specialist to cure all weaknesses and diseases of the feminine organism. W. R. Malcolm, Esq., of Knobcl, Clay Co.. Ark., writes : " My wife for perhaps four months pre vious to the birth of our child took the Favorite Prescription.' This strengthened her entire sys tem, and child-birth, to her, was very easy, be ing attended ith little pain. Our baby Ruth is 13 months old and she had never been sick a day, Dot so much as had the colic; she is hearty and (tout, and pretty as a picture pretty because she is healthy, and we very much blame Dr. Pierce's tamily medicines for it. We keep Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov ery, the 4 Favorite Prescription' and the ' Pleas- ntEell-t&! in our hd"me aud use them. We have been married most three years and I have called a physician into my family but one time at birth'of our baby." If all the maladies due to constipation were taken out of medical books, there would be little left but the covers. Con stipation is positively, permanently cured by Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets.

Clever Work by Clilcasro Counter tellers The Sontlivrest Fnrnlshci the Most tlaken of "the Queer." PRESENT FASHIONS. Accessories for Summer Costumes , Waistbands, Collars, Lapels, Etc. , Among1 other accessories sold sepa rately are ruches of snowy tulle, with vhich'are rdade neck trimmings lighter end softer and more fluffy than half boas of ostrich feathers. But they are more fragile. The tulle of which they are composed ia in' all colors black, white, silver gTay, mauve, pink, claret colored, China pink and Kile green, in every case pow dered with white; but the shades best suited to" the complexion are white, pale gray, or black powdered with white. There are two ways of making1 tip .these ruches; sometimes they are made with coqiiesK fixed upon No. 12 or 22 eatin. ribbon to match; sometimes they are fastened together with very fine silk so 'as.to.f ora. a sort of tuyau, through which is passed a round pip ing1 of cotton covered with drab ribbon about 40 centimeters in length; then with a silk to match the tulle the puffo are attached every one or two centi meters apart, forming rosettes of five to ten centimeters, according as the fuche is required smaller or larger. Sometimes they are made slightly deep er and brqught. together so as to make the ruche fuller. Very pretty ruches are made with Co. CO' moire or taffeta ribbon, niched la the center and edged with a very small frill or a narrow ruche of black or white mousseline-de soie at the edge of a black ribbon. A pretty fashion in trimming tulle grenadine or barege dresses is to make a ruche of white, pink, pale .green 'or turquoise satin rib bon, always using blak mousseline de soie- for the small ruche which bor ders it. . .- , Some corsage fronts in black or white tnousseline de soie I hare seen trimmed with insertion or spangled braid, laid on flat among the tulle or muslin, as the case may be. The same thing can be done with black lace and spangled braid, collar and waistband of some bright colored moire, which can be tied behind in a baby knot and long ends, edged with a very tiny ruche of black mousseline de soie, 'They are also mode with- ribbons. . I have seen a black tulle btotise, with ooarae meshes, on which are sewn two rowi 'of cream guipure insertion of a veryfprettjp 'pattern.

A counterfeit of the five-dollarUniteo States silver certificate, series oi 1896,' was forwarded a few days age to the secret serv ice bureau at the treas ury department from Chicago. It was the first which had been received since last January, and experts declared it is a clever piece of work, which would cot be delected as a counterfeit excepl tinder close scrutiny. It had a num ber of points about it which stamp it as being spurious, but which would not be noticed in the least by the laity. "I had been expecting this note tfl turn up for a long time," said Chiei Hazen, of the secret service bureau, tc a Star reporter the other day, as he shoved the counterfeit note across the table to be examined (by the reporter. "I am rather surprised that we have not secured it before. ; "It comes from Chicago, and from certain ear marks which I can detect about it it is the work of a noted coun terfeiter by the name of John Alfred L'Koog. L'Koog1 is a Swede, about 35 years of age, and rather clever as a note maker. He escaped from Joliet prison, Illinois, last March, where he had been sent, from Chicago for coun terfeiting, with two other men. They were coin makers, named Jacob John son end James Foley. They were re- J captured and returned to the prison. but so far L'Koog has eluded the watchfulness of the officers. "Ever since his escape we have been looking out for some of his work, and it has just turned up. When a man has started in the business he never quita it, unless by force of circumstances. "It was only reasonable to suppose that L'Koog would return to- his old haunts and occupation in Chicago, and the supposition proved correct. "The last counterfeit note we re ceived was from Chicago, also. It was a $20 'Manning head certificate and turned up January 11. The windy city is a center for counterfeiting, as the workers have often (been captured there." The chief sat in his private office in the treasury building, about which clings an air of mystery connected with everything pertaining to the se cret service On the walls were pic tures of famous makers and shovers of "the queer," more were held in cab inets, and records, which if revealed would cause sensations throughout the United States, were hidden in boxes and carefully filed away. "Counterfeiting might be termed the aristocracy of crooks. They are gen erally quiet, not often immoral or con vivial, and are naturally very reserved. It is to their interest to be reticent. It is a paradox, but thereare neverthieves emong them. What 1 mean is, while they follow counterfeiting, which is one of the worst crimes imaginable, they would not Tob or burglarize. Many of them have been known to be exceedingly charitable, though it may be said if they are successful they can easily afford to be so. They are a mild er class than that of any other crimin als. They never cause trouble in any community wherever they may happen to be, outside of the counterfeiting. "There are not so many women in the business as formerly; why, cannot just be explained. There are few fe males in it now, and those who are en gaged in the business cooperate with their husfbands. The man generally makes the money, and the woman passes it, as she does not find so much trouble in doing so. "There is more coining of the queer in the west and southwest sections of the country than in the others. It prob ably started there and has continued. It is transmitted from father to son, just like any other trade, and flourishes jn much the same manner as does illicit distilling. "It is a mistaken idea to suppose thet counterfeiters, as has been stated, buy silver and make it into coin, thereby gaining the profit which the stamp is supposed to add to it. Not by any means. A counterfeiter will not pay CO cents or 62 cents an ounce for silver to use when he can get the same results differently. He buys antimony, tin, piaster of paris. and other materials, ibe whole outfit costing about SI. 50. With these he can get out coin to the i'aoe value of $200 or 300. They wish to make as much as possible out of as little as possible. "'We recognize the work of individ ual coin counterfeiters by the manner in which the coins are finished, as to the milling on the edges, and other de tails. It is very seldom that we aremis taken in this respect. Every one has his own mark."

Eugene Lee-Hamllton. Why Jimmy Returned Home. i r k. How I came to visit my home hap pened in a curious way. Some time ago I went down to Fire Island fish ing. I had had a lunch put up for me. and you can imagine my astonishment when I opened the hamper to find a package of crackers wrapped up in a weekly published at my home In 'Wis consin. I read every word of It, adver tisements and all. There was George Kellogg, who was a schoolmate of mine, advertising hams and salt pork, and another boy was postmaster. By George, it made me homesick, and I determined then, and there to go home, and go home I did. In the first place I must tell you how I came to New York. I had a tiff with" my father and left home. I finally turned up in New York with out a dollar In my pocket. I got a job running a freight elevator in the very house in which I am now a part ner. My haste to get rich drove the thought of my parents from me, and when I did think of them the harsh words that my father last spoke to me rankled in my bosom. Well, I went home. I tell you, John, my train seemed to creep. I was actually worse than a schoolboy going home for a vacation. At last we neared the town. Familiar sights met my eyes, and, up on my word, they filled, with tears. There was Bill Lyman's red barn just the same; but, great Scott, what were all the other houses? We rode nearly a. mile before coming to the station, passing many houses of which only an occasional one was familiar. The town had grown to ten times its size when I knew it. The train stopped and I jumped off- Not a face I knew, md I started down the platform to go home. In the office door stood the station agent. I walked up and said, "Howdy, Mr. Collins?" He stared at me and replied: "You've got the best of me, sir." I told him who I was and what I ha3 been doing in New Yoric, and he aidn't make any bone.3 In talking to me. He said:.- "It's about, time you were coming home. Yo'i in New York rich and rour father scratching gravel to get a living." I tell you, JoEn, it knocked me all In. a heap. I thought my father had snough to live upon comfortably. Then i notion struck me. Before going home telegraphed to Chicago to one of our :orresponden"ts there to send me $1,000 oy first mail. Then I went into Mr. Collins's back office, got my trunk' in ihere, put on an old, hand-me-down suit that I used for fishing and hunt ing. My plug hat I replaced by a soft one, took my valise in , my hand and went home. Somehow the place didn't look right. The currant bushes had been dug up from the front yard, and Che fence was gone. All the old locust trees had been cut down and young maple trees were planted. The house looked smaller, toq, some how. But I went up to the front door and rang the bell. Mother came to the front door and said, "We don't wish to buy any thing to-day, sir." It didn't take a minute to survey her from head to foot. Neatly dressed, John, but a patch here and there, her hair streaked with gray, her face thin md wrinkled. Yet over her eye-glasses 3hone those good, honest, benevolent eyes. I stood staring at her, and then she began to stare at me. I saw the blood rush to h'er face, and with a great sob she threw herself upon me and nervously clasped me about the heck, hysterically crying, "It's Jimmy, It's Jimmy." Then I cried to, John. I broke down and cried like a baby. She got me back to the house hugging' and kissing me. Then she went to the back door and shouted "George." Father called from the kitchen, "What do you want, Car'line?" Then he came in. He knew me in i moiceht. He stuck out his hand and grasped mine firmly, and said sternly: "Well, young man, do you propose to behave yourself now?" He tried to put on a brave front, but tie broke down. There we sat like whipped school children, all whimper ing. At last supper time came and mother went out to prepare it. I went into the kitchen with her. "Where do you live, Jimmy?" she asked. "Tn New York," I replied. "What are you working at now, Jimmy?" "I am working In a drygoods store." "Then I suppose you don't live very high, for I hear tell o' them city clerks what don't, get enough to hold body and soul together. So I'll just tell you; limmy, we've got nothing but roast ed spareribs for supper. We ain't got any money now, Jimmy. We're poorer nor Job's turkey." I told her I would be delighted with the spareribs, and to fell the truth, John, I have not eaten a meal in New York that tasted as good as those crisp, roasted spareribs did.' I spent the evening playing checkers with father, while mother sat by telling me all about their misfortunes, from old white Mooley getting drowned in the pond to father's signing a rrote for a friend and having to mortgage his place to pay it.' The mortgage was due inside of a week and not a cent to meet ft with just $800. She supposed they waufu be turned out of house- and borne, but ia my mind I supposed they wouldn't. At last 9 o'clock came anJ father said, "Jim, go out to the barn and see if Kit is all right. Bring in ah armful of old shingles that are Just inside the door, and fill up the watei pail. Then we'll go off to bed, and got up eariy and go a-fishing." I didn't say a word, but I went out to the barn, bedded down the horse, broke up an armful of shingles, pump ed up a pailful of water, filled the wood box, and then we all went to bed. Father called me at half past foui in the morning, and while he was get ting breakfast I skipped over to the depot, cross lots, and got my best bass rod. Father took nothing but a troll ing line and a spoon hook. He rowed the boat with the trolling line in his nfouth, while I stood in the stern with a silver rigged shiner on. Now, John, I never saw a man catch fish as he did. At noon we went ashore and father went home, while I went to the post office. I got a letter from Chicago, with a check for $1,000 jn it. With some trouble I got it cashed, getting paid in "$5 and $10 bills, making quite a roll. I then got a roast joint of beef, with a lot of delicacies, and had fhem sent home. After that I went visiting among my old schoolmates for two hours and went home. Mother had put on her only silk dress and father had donned his Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes, none too good either. This is where I played a joke on the old folks. Mother was in the kitchen watching the roast. Father was out to the barn, and I had a clear coast. I dumped the sugar out of the old blue bowl, put the thousand dollars in it and placed the cover on again. At last supper was ready. Father asked a blessTng over it, and he actually trembled when he stuck his knife into the roast. . "We haven't had a piece of meat like that in five years, Jim," he said, and mother put fn with, "Arid we haven't had any coffee in a year, only when we went visiting." Then she poured out the coffee and lifted the cover of the sugar bowl, ask ing as she did so: "How many spoon fuls, Jimmy?" Then she struck something that wasn't sugar. She picked up the bowl and peered Into it. "Aha, Mister Jim my, playing your old tricks on your mammy, eh? Well boys will be boys." Then she gasped for breath. She saw it was money. She looked at me and then at father; then with tremb ling fingers drc.r out the great roll ol billa. Ha, ha, ha! I can see father now, as he stood there on tip toe, with his knife in one hand and his fork in the other, and his eyes fairly bulging out of his head. But it-was too much for moth er. She raised her eyes slowly to heaven, and said: "Put your trust in the Lord, for He will provide." Then she fainted away. Well, John, there is not much more to tell. We threw water in her face and brought her to; then we demolished that din ner, mother all the time saying: "My boy Jimmy! My boy Jimmy!" I stayed a month. I fixed up the place, paid off all the debts, had a good time and came back to New York. 1 am going to send $50 home every week. I tell you, John, it is mighty nice to have a home. V John was looking steadily at the head of his cane. When he spoke he took Jim by the hand and said: "Jim old friend, what you have told me has affected me greatly. I haven't heard from my home away up in Maine for ten years. I am going home to-morrow." i Some Expert Tree Climbing. If tree climbing, as some learned professors will have it, is a legacy from our arboreal ancestors, the natives of the East have got their share In a won derfully intact condition. Of course, there are lazy natives who keep mon keys to save them the bother of climb ing epeoanut palms for dinner, but the best of monkeys fight shy of a wild bee's nest, however well stocked it may be with honey. The monkey likes the honey Veil enough, but fears the bee, and so leaves this business to his master. The jungle bee, too, has the habit of selecting the very top o the highest branchless tree it can find for its nest. : That is no great ob stacle to the professional honey-gathering jungleman. The jungleman, throwing his mantle over his shoul ders, encircles the bole of the tree and his body In a loose loop of rattan. Then, leaning back in the loop and planting his feet against the tree, he practically walks up the side of tha tree, supporting his weight in the loop as he scales upward. Reaching the nest, he deftly envelops it in his man tle and quickly returns to the ground, commonly without a sting, and with a stone or two of honey for his pains. London Sketch. A Chinese Apothecary Shop. One side of the shop was taken up by a long counter, and shelves and drawers extended all around the room. These were covered and filled with a great and miscellaneous collection of strange and rare herbs and roots. Deer horns, in their velvet stage, were suspended from the ceiling. These, af ter being sliced as tin as wafers, are boiled and produce what Is supposed to bo a valuable medicine. Dried liz ards, neatly spread on thin bamboo ,Mira occiiDied a basket at nn on of the counter. Dried toads, sharks' tails ana many uiuer curious oojects used in. the preparation of Chinese medicines littered the shop from end to end, and a richly carved and gilded open work screen with two dragons in the centre, extended across the mid dle of the ceiling. The Chinese are very much behind hand in their knowledge of medicine. Their methods, which are based on ig norance and superstition, are quite as absurd and primitive as were those ot the Europeans of the middle aires.

A test will be mads on the farm with sugar-beet seed, the department having furnished a ''large- quantity for experiment. Under the present management of Indian affairs the Indians of the Shoshone reserva tion are improving rapidly in condi tion, and the majority of the tribe will soon become self-eupporting,: Great interest is being taken by the Indians in school work, and the agency school is having a very successful term.

It began its history as the Fyst Regi ment, established in June, 1784 It was with "Mad Anthony" Wayne in his In dian campaigns. It was also promi nent in the War of 1812, and spent a decade of its existence in the Great Lakes region. Then it went to Florida during the Seminole War, and had its place at Palo Alto, Resaca de la Pal ma, Monterey, Cherebusco and Vera Cruz in the Mexican War.
