Three-tenths of the earnings, of a Belgian convict are given to him on the expiration of his term of impris onment. Some of them thus save more money in jail than they have ever saved before. Mice cannot exist on Papa Little, an island in St. Magnus bay, on the west of Shetland.

At Buckingham palace there are six Sevres vases-which would 'etch in an auction room $25,000 apiece. A necklace made of black ants is an article of adornment of New Guinea. The Anglican mission there gives par ticulars of one which measures over 11 feet long, and was composed1 of as many as 1.S00 bodies of ants.. Three little pieces of shell and a dozen Eng lishs beads were incorporated into it, and there was a native string holding it together, yet its w eight only reached two drams, two scruples, thirteen grains. These large black ants make big nests in the native gardens, and the native women and girls catch them, pull off their heads, bite off and swallow the other end and thread the "thorax." CURES BY HYPNOTISM. IiitcreMtiiiK Account of Experiment! In nil KiiKliah Insane Anylnra During Ten Years. In a lectire lately delivered before the King's College Medical society Dr. Milne Brain well gave an interesting sketch of the subject of hypnotism, re ports the London Hospital. Describ ing the experiments of Florel, who till recently was the medical director of the Iiurgholi asylum and one of the professors of the University of Zurich, he said that he had succeeded in hyp notizing nearly all his asylum attend ants both male and female, a large proportion of them becoming pro found somnambules. For ten years ex periments were made in regard to the use of hypnotism in the night watch ing of dangerous lunatics. Warders were hypnotized and trained to sleep by the bedside of these patients and to awake the instant they heard them attempt to get out of bed, the hypnotic suggestion being made use of to in hihit all sounds, which made no refer ence to the duty laid upon them, and it was found that warders so hypnotized could perform Height duty for six months and work hard all day with out showing signs of fatigue. The re sult of these experiments were, it is said, uniformly successful, and no ac cident of any kind occurred. In regard to this and other applica. tions of hypnotism Dr. Bramwell re fers to the method of Wetterstrand, who instead of restricting himself to suggestions made in the course of a short hypnotic trance, advocated the use of the curative effects of prolonged hypnotic sleep. Wetterstrand treated epilepsy and grave forms of nervous disorder by keeping the patients in the hypnotic trance for three or four weeks. Without rousing them, the patients were fed at stated intervals, and the actions of the bowel and blad der were regulated by suggestion and thus mental as well as physical rest was given, in addition to such thera peutic advantages as might be gained by aid of suggestion. Dr. Milne Bramwell says that, al though everyone cannot be deeply hypnotized, profound states are not necessary for the successful employ ment of suggestion, and the number of persons insusceptible to somedegree of hypnotic intf.ience is extremely s mall. Among other diseases he gives the following as those in which hypno tism has given good results : "Hysteria, neurasthenia, dipsomania, and other drug habits, obsessions, moral per versities and nervous tricks in chil dren." We may add that, as far as the treatment of dipsomania is concerned It seems not entirly impossible "that some of the startling results which are said to have been obtained at certain institutions for the treatment of this condition may hae been the outcome of an unacknowledge but none the less effectual application of hypnotic sug gestion.

"I think that the people of the west are exceedingly interesting, but I do not like their ways." 6aid te spinster landlady, as she began her nightly attack with the carv ing knife on a leg of cold mutton, relates the New York Tribune. "What don't you like about them?" asked her nephew, who sat next to her and often embarrassed the boarders by saying there was too much water in the soup. "Why, I tUink they are too forward," said the woman with the knife, as she peeled off a thin slice for a hard working politician and officeholder, who often entertained the rest of the boarders by telling them of his campaign experiences. "Have you met many westerners?" asked the politician, as he saw his almost empty plate set before him. . "Yes," was the prompt reply. "I was out in California and the people out there en tertained me almost to death. The women I met at noon acted as if they had known me their whole lives by two o'clock. They were altogether too forward. 1 didn't like it." "But the men didn't bother you, aunty, did they?" piped u'.) the nephew. CARRIED A MENAGERIE.

Do you have dizzy spells, headache, backache. Is your breath bad, digestion poor, are your bowels constipated. If you have any of these symptoms you stand in need of PRICKLY ASH BITTERS, the great blood purifier, system cleanser and regulator. This grand remedy BEGINS RIGHT by acting on the excretory organs the kidneys and bowels, thereby getting rid of the ac cumulated impurities which have caused the trouble. After this has been accomplished the strengthening and restorative element in PRICKLY ASH BITTERS will continue the good work. It will gently urge the vital organs to a better and more complete performance of their duties, give them strength and tone and promote harmony of action throughout the body. When the system has been cleared of obstructions, the bowels regulated and the kidneys resume fully their office of purifying the blood, the general condition is immediately improved. Appetite and digestion are corrected, the eyes are brighter, the strength returns, the complexion loses that sallow muddy cast, giving place to a clear skin and ruddy glow. These are the signals of returning health, and they bring along that thrill and joy of living and- interest in life's duties that only those in perfect health enjoy. . feei:eitly ces ' tzi r:::::zf ta' 1 inREGuiARinES couiion auohb houeh. 1!
