Many years ago, while engaged in the general practice of medicine I saw the dark and apparently hopeless condition of nearly every sufferer from CHRONIC DISEASES, as well a the utter futility of the methods of relief (relief simply and not cure) employed by the best in the medical frater nity, and I speedily determined my course of ac tion and wedded my professional life to the most careful analysis and intimate knowledge of the pe culiarities of this class of ailments, bending also my energies to find some NEW Method of Treatment Which would be alike satisfactory to my patents and myself. Not the work of a day, or a month, or a year, but after MANY years of persistent application, I have by actual proof and test fixed and determined a line of treatment which for positive certainty of results borders on the, marvelous and has aptly been termed A PRICELESS DISCOVERY, And X can show, prove and demonstrate to any reasonable, sensible, intelligent person that the most difficult, long-standing and obscure CHRON IC DISEASES will yield as if by magic to my Nswr Rational, Scientific Treatment, and I have no hesitancy in saying that in the large majority of such cases I can not only give Relief, but can Core them. My treatment, touching the foundation and removing absolutely the cause of disturbance, rap idly builds anew, invigorates with healthy growth and recreates the original design. DR. H. N.

I will let you know how I was able to recommend it. Last April my horse was attacked with pneumonia. We all thought he could not live. Being a pet horse, we did everything possible to save it. The disease soon assumed a typl oid form and the doc tor advised us to kill him. Th f evr Anally set tled in his feet and he could not stand upon them. We tried several preparations to help the hoofs. Hearing of your Ointment I-purchased a box, and 1 assure you it worked wonders in this case. All of my neighbors are surprised at the result. It is in deed the beat Ointment in the world. Yours respectfully, H. I. WILDMVN. Hoot's Ointment la for .ale by all Drop Slats. Wholesale Dlsnnlartorr and Depot 859 GRAND STHEKT.

One of the signs of the times is the protest against political prohibition made by people who have long and efficiently worked and led ia the temperance movement. Mrs. J. Ellen Foster Bays: I do not believe input ting up men merely to go through the mo tions of voting for them and to keep np the party organization, when the result of such party organization and third party voting is to put liquor men or their sympathizers in offices of public trust. The "third party" vote does not represent five per cent, of the prohibitory sentiment of the country. It is smallest in those States where such senti ment represented in law is dominant. Not a little excitement has been created in Minnesota by an article in the Northwestern Chronicle, which is the personal organ of BUhop Ireland of the Roman Catholic church. The bishop is well known as an earnest advocate of temperance. His paper comes out in favor of the Republican ticket and says: There can be no question as to where the friends of temperance, of law and order, of sobriety and of good government must take their stand this fall. Between Ames, with his "wide-open" policy, stand ing on a free whisky platform with the Co lumbia league at his back openly declaring that they will capture the legislature' in the interests of rum, and McGill, as the nominee of thejparty pledged to high license and the control of the liquor traffic, no advocate of temperance, no total abstainer, no enemy of the saloon can hesitate for a moment and be consistent. We have advocated high li cense for years; we have written and worked against rum for so long, and we would be untrue to ourselves, untrue to the principles we proclaim, did we not declare ourselves strongly In favor of the party that pledges itself to the measures that we desire to see enforced The Democratic party prefers low license to high license a "wide open" policy to legislative control of the liquor traffic. It has made its choice. It appeals to the friends of those measures to support its ticket, and, as we are not nor never havj been in sympathy with such a po litical programme, it evidently does not de sire our support and will not be disappoint ed when it fails to get it. There are, we are glad to know, many men in Connecticut who would like to see a prohibitory law made, but who are not will ing to try to damage the only party that has tried to restrain the lienor traffic. The folly of political prohibition is daily growing more apparent. EDITORIAL. MOTES. The Providence Journal hopes that the proceedings of the American Board of For eign Missions will not be largely read by the heathen whom it is desired to convert. It is also to be hoped that the dead heathen are not obliged to pay attention to the proceed ings. In 160 of the 185 congressional districts now represented by Democrats party conven tions have been held and fifty-six of the present members have not been renominated. In 117 of the 140 Republican districts twen ty Republican incumbents have failed of re nomination. An interesting suit has just been tried in San Francisco. The captain of a ship from Liverpool ref uBed to put his pilot ashore on the Irish coast or to stop and put him on any returning vessel, but carried him clear to San Francisco, aronnd the Horn, while the pilot protested at thus being dragged away from a rich wife at home. He sued for $50,000 damages and the court decided for him, leaving the amount to be fixed by a commission. There are men in Chicago who do not al low anybody to get far ahead of them. A Madison street saleon keeper attraoted cus tomers by displaying war relics. Genuine or not he labeled them "A sword from the Val ley of the Shenandoah; a bullet from the field of Gettysburg; a sword that went through the war," etc., eto. Whereupon a rival in Canal street displayed what he called "A nail from Noah's Ark; a back tooth from the whale that swallowed Jonah; a piece of iron from one of the picks that Cyrus used in getting into Babylon; a piece of brass, all that was left of a suspender button that Dan iel left in the lion's den, and the core of the apple that William Tell fired at." Electricity works strangely. Messrs. Walsh and Tweedy of the United States Geological survey were caught out in an eleotrio storm while sketching from a high peak near Dixie Butte, Oregon, recently. First there was a bnzzing sound, apparently coming from un der the drawing table that Mr. Walsh was using.- He put his hand under the drawing sheet and received a severe shock. Tweedy, who was lying down, was also disturbed and jumped te his feet, but went down again quickly, for where he stood the electrio fluid entered in such quantities aa to produce an almost unbearable prickling sensation. Both men felt tremendous shocks, their hair stood np like bristles, their muscles twitched and in all respects they felt as if connected with a powerful electrio battery. Through it all the projecting rocks gave forth a musical humming sound. It is not very pleasant to see that one of the New England States Vermont is los ing ground in educational matters. In 1880 the number of children enrolled in school ia Vermont at some time during the year was 73,952, while in 1886 it has sunk to 71,667. , Aathe last census Bhowed 09,463 persons of school age, it follows that only 72 per cent, of the children now enter a publio school, against more than 74 per cent, six years ago. The present proportion falls below that in four of the southern States Delaware, West Virginia, Florida and Texas 79 per cent, of all the children being enrolled in the last named commonwealth, while Missouri is within four per cent, of Vermont's record, and even South Carolina falls but nine per cent, behind. In Missouri the average daily attendance is 75 per cent., against Vermont's 65, in Florida 73 and in South Carolina 69. "Smoker by Compulsion" writes to the St. James Gazette: Allow me to say that my own case more than bears ont Dr. Mich ael Foster's views with regard to color-blindness. It is undoubtedly true that color blindness is the result of sticking to one kind of tobacco. A few years ago I learned to smoke to oblige a friend. I never liked it. One day I called a blue color yellow and a red one green. My occupation is one in which ability to distinguish colors is essen tial. Much alarmed, I consulted doctor after doctor in vain. I got worse and worse. One day a medical student called. By the mer est accident I mentioned my malady. "What do you smoke?" he asked at once. I said, Bird's eye." "And you never vary UP f'Never." Without another word he handed me his pouch. It contained "Honeydew." I smoked for three hours, and next day I was whole. 1 The cure was wonderful. I con tinue to smoke taking care to- vary my to baccosfor when I leave off L find that the color-blindness comes back. I also find it advisable to keep a box of cigars. They, too. are a change. " In my opinion, no one who has once smoked should ever giye np the practice for this reason: Of two evils we shonld always choose the least. I am told that this medical student has been plucked ten times. It seems a shame. CAME. Why not let Geronimo umpire a game be tween the Detroits and Chicagos! Puck. America hasn't much of a navy, but she possesses considerable of a yachty. JPuck. President of corporation "Now, watch man, if you'll take the treasurer and books from the safe,we'Jl-begin the day's business." Tid-Bits. Southern netrrees have so far recovered front their fear of earthquakes that when one has hold of the leg of a chicken and a shock comes he doesn't let go. Puck. A California paper speaks of "A mother's will contested" as if that was an unusual oc currence. 'Twaa always thus since child hood's happy hours. Boston Post. 'Just throw me half -a-dozen of the biggest of those trout," said a citizen to the fish deal er. "Throw them?" queried the dealer."Yes, and then I'll go home and tell my wife that I caught 'em. I may be a poor fisherman, but I'm no liar." Exchange. At the close of the summer campaign. Willie Freshington "Wouldn't it be nice if we could stroll together this way always?"

CABBIES OF PARIS. An American Wno Waa Erlentened ay tne Hackmen. Paris Correspondence of the Boston Herald. Two years ago I saw here in Paris great fear shown frequently by one of the biggest gamblers of New York. He has been a "sporting man" all his life; he has been the referee at several prize fights: he has had to do with roughs and "crooks" of all kinds since he was a boy. A better on horse races, he also "bucks the tiger" and plays for big money at "short cards." Noted always as a man of iron will, nerves of steel and un flinching bravery, he has more influence over thieves, gamblers and ruffians generally than any American ever knew. For some time he was the manager of John L. Sullivan I shall continue to write very respectfully of that individual as long as his "left duke" holds its own and was the only one ever able to make that you know what I mean behave himself. Well, a few years ago this very particular sport passed some very miserable days in Paris simply because he became thoroughly frightened by the publio hackmen. He was very anxious to hear Patti, then singing at the Nations. It was only a few steps from his hotel to that theater and I suggested that he had better walk there. "Walk I Catch me in the street on foot. I wouldn't walk from here to the other side of the boulevard for a thousand dollars. I never step out of this house but I take my life in my hand, and I tremble with fear until I get back again. There are cabmen out there who do nothing but wait for me. Wh.n they see me attempt to cross the boulevard or the Rue Scribe they head their hones straight at me and try their best to run over me." It final ly happened that he wouldn't walk a block if by doing so he'd have to make a crossing. He always got into a fiacre or a private car riage. There is no doubt about it, Paris cabbies are very peculiar in their ways, and it cer tainly does seem as if some of them were bent on driving over all pedestrians whom they can possibly find in their way. But I am rather inclined to think that this is not because of any viciousness on their part, but rather because of ignorance. It is astonish ing what poor drivers the publio hackmen of Paris are. Chevaliers of the whip on private carriages are as good here as you will find in any city, but the "oocher de fiacre" is as stupid and indifferent, as lazy and uncon trollable as any communist that ever was. Still if there is one class of persons with whom we have more to do with than another it is these same pnblio hackmen. Here more than elsewhere is he the necessary collabora tor in the three great events in the lives of the inhabitants. He will drive a merry wed ding party in the morning to the Bates Chau mont. In the afternoon he may carry mourners behind the hearse to Pere-la-Chaise r Montmatre cemeteries; and then on his way back is as likely as not called on to take a new born babe to the tnairie of the ward for registration as a French citizen. He drives lovers to their rendezvous,- gaping tourists throngh noisy thoroughfares and business men to wholesale houses. Travel ers engage him going to and coming from the trains; all the world are his clients and few of us can manage to get along without his services. If he were not a drinker of ab sinthe or bad brandy, an eater of garlicky dishes and a smoker of vile cabbage leaves or cut straw he would be a great deal better fellow than he is now.Ho has contracted the habit of passing his time when unem ployed in the drinking saloon nearest to his stand, and he leaves on the zinc bars of these merchants de vins not only his earnings but aiso his health, his politeness, good nature and all the other qualities which the exercise of his calling demands. When you go np to a Paris cab stand the chances are that the driver is not in his box; presently he comes out of a saloon, his face red with the bad stuff he has been drinking, and he is not at all well-disposed toward you for having pre vented him from winning another dram. He gets angry if you ask him to drive faster, manages to run into another vehicle, to let his horse fall down or to do something else which delays you, and if he does not do this he keeps his whip continually cracking over the. ears of his wretched beast, meanwhile taking good care to hold it in at a walk all the time. The business of street hacks was com menced in Paris during the reign of Louis XIIL, at which time they got the name of fiacre, by which they are now universally known all over France from the fact that the owner of them kept his vehicles in the stable of an inn which had a picture of St. Fiacre on its signboard. Louis XIV. made certain regulations concerning fiacres, but Napoleon was the first monarch to require them to have numbers and fixed places at which to wait for customers. Of late years their num ber has increased rapidly. There were five thousand in 1852, but there are now more than three times that number, principally owned by two large companies, the General e and fre Crbaine, "bernd. which there are two or three others of lesser importance, also a certain number owned by drivers or hired by them from stablemen. A volume would hardly suffice to contain all the com plaints Parisians are in the habit of making against these "chevaliers da fouet." They are never satisfied with their ponrboires, they walk their horses when you take them by the hour, and they arrogate the privilege of accepting or refusing customers according to their personal fancies. It is true that one can force a "coacher" to drive him if one can manage to get into the fellow's vehicle, but he generally takes care to find out where the fare is going before he lets them do that, and then if the distance is too long for the pour boire he feels sure he will receive, he de clares that his horse is tired and that he is on the way to the stable to change it. On holidays he insists on charging special rates, and sometimes the rates are quite as high as a fine livery carriage would have cost you for the same service, and when he is in a bad humor he tries to run over people, an ex ploit quite frequently accomplished, and for which he generally escapes punishment. Library Rook-It .etc.. I From the Buffalo Express. The book-racks in course of construction in the Buffalo Library building are marvels of perfection in the application of the mul tnm in parvo principle. The idea upon which they are constructed originated with Mr. J. N. Lamed, the superintendent ot the library, although they are based on the prin ciples employed in the racks of the Harvard and several other libraries. It is said, how ever, that nothing approaching the present racks for neatness and convenience, as well as safety, has ever been constructed. In all large modern libraries the glass case with doors has long been abandoned as being more troublesome than useful; and the plan of building the racks in tiers of two, three or four stories is now also generally em ployed. The present racks are almost entire ly of wrought iron. They are placed in aisles, those on the side being about half as broad as the main aisle leading down the center of the book-room. All the uprights of the cases are of iron pipe about one inch in diameter. Light iron staircases lead to the upper stage at intervals, giving free ac cess to every book In the room without the necessity of using a stepladder. Between the uprights are small double wooden shelves about four feet broad, holding two rows of volumes facing outward on both sides. The only cast iron used in the construction of the racks is in the floors of the upper aisles, which are bordered by an open-work cast-iron pattern, into which are let plates of ground glass, thus giving light to the lower aisles. Every available square foot of the two book-rooms is occupied by the racks, and yet so light, airy and free from cumber some features are they that air and light have free access to all parts of the rooms, and the work of dusting and cleaning is re duced to a minimum. It is intended to al low only employes access to the book-room unless with special permission, and it is believed that the contemplated arrangement of the books will greatly facilitate their rapid delivery to members. The almost fire proof construction of the racks is also au important feature in their general ex cellence. It is hoped another week will see the racks in readiness for the recaption of books. A Laval Incident. From the Boston Ceurier.J One of the most delicious examples of the feminine method of doing business has just come to light in New York, and not even the fear of the indignation of the Woman's Jour nal can restrain us from telling it. A wealthy Englishman who had married an American wife, with whom he lived in a good deal of luxury, lost his property by unlucky specu lations; and after all sorts ef other expedi ents had been tried his wife mortgaged some very valuable Paris gowns to a fashionable friend. Some time, after the husband re turned to England and the wife ob tained employment, so that at the end of a couple of years she found herself in a position where she could raise the money to redeem her clothes. The possessor, however, declined to part with them. She had a fond ness for the sort of lace with which they were adorned, she found the handiwork of Worth quite to her taste, and to all overtures she returned a courteous but decided negative. The lady for whom the gorgeous raiment had originally been fabricated, although she was by no means in circumstances where the wearing of such raiment was appropriate to her condition, became only the more will ing to undertake her cause on speculation, and through him she brought suit to recover the valuable gowns. The case in due time came on. Experts testified to the value of the property, tub receipt of them as a pledge was not denied, the original owner testified to having proff.red principal and interest for the loan, and the lawyer for prosecution closed his case with a complaoent assurance that he had won the suit. The counsel for the defenoe simply submit ted to the court a single paper,bnt this was an agreement, drawn at the time the loan was made, and signed by the borrower, that if not redeemed within a year the gowns should become inalienably the property of the lend er. Asked if she acknowledged the signa ture to this document, the borrower naively replied that she signed something at the time of the transaction, but of course she did not suppose it would prevent her getting back her gowns when she wanted them I The incident is sufficiently lndicrous, but it really has a pretty serious moral. The ig norance of womankind of legal forms and obligations has been often commented upon, but apparentiy the sex are as a rule quite as far as ever from appreciating the disastrous consequences which may follow from their neglect to inform themselves in this direc tion. The lady in question left the court in tears and her speculating ooansel retired in a bine mist of profanity; but they left a moral behind them which it would be well if all women would heed and ponder. An Extraordinary Interview. From the Washington Post. , The first interview I ever had with the Jersey Lily was a memorable one. I was sent as an ambassador extraordinary to offer her one hundred dollars for a column article for an important New York periodical. 'I met her in the lobby of the Albemarle Ho tel, New York, and was presented by a friend of mine who happened to be with her. "Come up to Wallack's at one," she said; "I have now an appointment, but will be there then at rehearsal." I went and made my way through the darkness baek of the stage. She was in street costume and was at the footlights go ing through the rehearsal of "Galatea." Just as I had arrived at the conclusion that she would rank about the twenty-seven thou sandth among the handsome women I knew she came up the stage to where I stood. I told her my errand. "I couldn't write anything that anybody would want to read," she said with a laugh. I murmured some thing about her ability being no doubt equal to her modesty, when without noticing it she went on: "But " you could. You could write something and I could sign it. How would that do!" Jt wouldn't dq at all I answered; what we wanted was some sketch of herself and her friends, and her going on the stage and all that. "Ah, well, yes; then Mrs. Labouchere here will write it; won't you, dear?" That worthy chaperone said she would try, "and we can fuss it up together." "A hundred pounds you said," mused the beauty demurely. I corrected her and said one hundred dollars twenty pounds. "Oh, it's nothing!" she broke out; "for a whole column tool" I assured her that no paper would proba bly pay any more; at any rate I was not au thorized to offer it. "And I got one hundred and twenty-two pounds," she continued, "for just signing my name to a certificate of soap yesterday." I pleaded that this would be different; "signing a nice article all about your pro fession your home your tastes ambition different from soap, don't you see?" She opened her big eyes and looked with Esthetic inquiry at Mrs. Labouchere, then ack at me. "No, not a shilling less," she said; "what's the difference?" I feared that she was becoming bewildered as to the qualities of things and turned sad ly away. grs (goods. DON'T DELAY In making; your selections from our Large Stock DRESS GOODS.
