Miss ABIGAIL BATES has died at
Scituate, Mass., aged 89. During the
War of 1812 she, with another woman,

eight bills, Cockrell is fourth in the list
with seventy bills and three resolutions,

while Logan, Blair and Harrison are a

while Kenna has introduced only two.
HE legislature of Connecticut has
just passed a law rendering it lawful
for infidels to testify in the courts. To
the Bostonese mind, expressed by a
city journal, "this privilege will not be
of much value to the unbelie\ing dogs,
since, as the newspapers of the state
remark, Christian jurymen and Chris
tian judges will take their testimony
for what they think it is worth. And
this, of course, is just nothing at all
for it is utterly absurd and unreason
able to suppose that the word of a Deist
or Agnostic, Je or Mohammedan,
Buddhist or Fire Worshipper, of any
body but a Christian indeed, as worth
anything whatever. They are all sure
to be everlastingly damned in next
world, and the fewer privileges they
have in this the better."

"flow are the Folks
Spanked by Statute.
It is a bad thing for growing boys,
or boys who ought to be giving their
energies to growing, to use tobacco
but they are not to be spanked by
statute into adopting the high and
lofty dogmas of the estimable George
Trask, of the Massachusetts legisla
ture. It the Massachusetts people
want to stop boys from using tobacco,
they should begin by stopping the men.
Boys smoke and "chewmore's the
pitybecause their elders do. The to
bacco habit is, in their view, an initia
tion into manhood, a putting on of the
virile toga or tall coat before the due
time. Common-sense persuasion by
parents may pluck a few of these
brands from tobacco burning, but boys
will continue to be boys, even if Massa
chusetts Legislatures should become a
great deal wiser than they have ever
been suspected of being.

Said a friend to another as they were

"They are all well," was the reply.
"Why, I thought your father had the

"Oh, yes, so he has he always has
that. I forgot all about it."
And so it is with many people who
suffer with the most aggravating pains.
They hobble around^ as best they can
and get very little or no sympathy on
account of their healthful look, and
from the fact that it is only rheumatism
and they always have it. What pains
are more severe than those from rheu- with the family. Returning home, she
matism? Said W. S. Hopkins, living
at No. 179 Avenue, Cedar Rapids,
Iowa:
"Myjwife and daughter were both
stricken with inflammatory rheumatism
at the same time. The lower limbs were
much sowllen. The pain seemed almost
beyond, endurance. Sleep was out of the
question. They suffered so much that
to move or even touch the sheet on the
bed would cause the most violent pain.
They were confined to the bed four
weeks. During that time and pre
viously, I bought many kinds of medi
cines. Then I employed a physician,
but nothing gave relief'until I bought
some Athlophoros, which I had heard
of, and I am glad to say in a very short
time the swelling was reduced, the
pain gone and they were entirely
well."
"How much did they take, Mr. Hop-
kins?"
"I think it was three boHles in all."
"Have either of them had any return
of the rheumatism?"
"Not in the least."
"It was rather a strange coincidence
both having an attack at the same
time?"
"Yes, it was, but such was the case,
strange as it may seem. They were
both helpless, but are now well, and
all from the use of Athlophoros. It is
an excellent medicine, and well
worth the trial by any sufferer from
rheumatism."
Mrs*. C. J. Albeck, living at No.
1067 Clay street, Dubuque, has used
Athlophoros, and gives this as her ex
perience with it:
"Yes, I have used it and it cured
me. Up to the time 1 used it, which
was in February, 1884,1 was subject to
frequent attacks of inflammatory
rheumatism and have been nearly all
my life. At times I would be almost
helpless. As sure as I would take a
little cold I would have an attack of
rheumatism, sometimes in my lower
limbs and at others in my arms.
When I commenced with the
Athlophoros I was carrying my right
aim in a sling. It was very much
swollen and I could not move my
fingers without causing me considerable
pain. One evening, while I was suf
fering in this way, I heard of Athlo
phoros, and the wonderful cure it had
made in Mrs. McCue's case. The next
day I sent for a bottle and commenced
using it at once. I Was a little afraid
of it at first, on account of the buzzing
sensation it caused in my head, but I
reduced the dose and kept taking it
regularly. It worked like a charm.
The swelling and pain were gone, mv
rheumatism was well, and I had free
use of my arm."
"Has it ever returned, Mrs. Albeck?"
'No, it is now a year and a half and
I have not suffered any since."
"Then it has proven a valuable medi
cine in curing vou of chronic rheuma-
tism?"
"Yes it certainly has, and I could not
say too much in favor of Athlophoros."
If you cannot get ATHLOPHOROS of your
druggist, we will send it express paid, on
receipt of regular priceone dollar per bot

Making It Hard to Mind..
Dr. Mary A. ATen, in the Christian
Union relates the following:
A little girl was sent on an errand
she found the family just sitting down
to tea, and was invited to share in the
meal.
"No, thank you," said she, "my
mamma don't like me to eat away
from home without her permission."
"Oh, she won't care," said the hos
pitable hostess: "I'll take the responsi
bility, and if she must whip somebody,
tell her to whip me." Overborne by
persuasion, the child sat down and ate
refused to eat her supper, saying she
was not hungry. Mamma knew that
her children were not troubled with
loss of appetite without cause, and with
some tender anxiety, asked, "Why are
you nothungry? Don't you feel well?"
Then her experienced eye read in the
child's expressive face that this ques
tion was a temptation to subterfuge,
and she hastened to ask another,which
should lead her to tell the truth:
"What did you do at Mrs. Ellis's?"
At once the flimsy veil of deceit was
blown away from before the little girl's
vision, and she answered bravely:
"Why, mamma, they asked me to stay
to supper, and teased me. and Mrs.
Ellis said you should whip her, and,
mamma, I had hot biscuit, and two
kinds of cake, and cheese, andand
Mrs. Ellis asked me if I liked tea, and I
said yes, but you did not want me to
drink it, and she fixed some tea, and
said I should drink it,and you wouldn't
know it, but I didn't do that, mamma,
and I think folks have no business to
make it so hard for little girls to mind
their mothers."

The Boston Journal tells the follow
ing: As one of the morning trains ran
into the Boston & Albany Railroad
Station one of the cold mornings re
cently, when the thermometer regis
tered 10 degrees below zero, a poor
young fellow leaning on a*crutch with
out mittens or overcoat and with a
bundle under his arm, alighted and
hobbled through the station, occasion
ally altering his bundle to blow on his
hands or rub his ears to keep them
from being frozen. Directly after him
walked a young gentleman enveloped
in a fur coat with its great collar
turned up around his ears, a seal cap
and thick gloves, making him look the
picture of warmth. As the crowd
came out to Beech street the fur coat
young man was seen to pull off his
gloves, and putting them on to the
hands of the young cripple he strode
hastily up the street without a word.
Astonishment was pictured on the crip

as he turned around to thank the giver,

Skye Marriages.
A marriage is an occasion of great
festhity in Skye. The bridegroom
must furnish his bride with a new dress
and the bridesmaid with one exactly
similar, beside giving presents to other
members of the family. A copious
supply of whisky is provided, and
it is considered very discreditable
if the supply proves insufficient.
The married crofters have numer
ous families, and not long ago
one good matron at Waternish present
ed her husband with three at a birth,
for which she received the usual royal
bounty. A common number is from
eight to ten, and some have as many
as fifteen. Few children die, as they
are wonderfully free from epidemics
common to young people. Some
children look fresh and rosy, while
others are more sickly but generally
grow rapidly after the age of fourteen,
turning out strong and healthy men
and women. After entering on the
cares of a family the woman partiallv
lose their beauty but still when dress
ed, as they sometimes are, in a taste
ful style, they look well and live to a
good old age.
Tourists to Yellowstone Park next season
might encounter a Northwestern blizzard.
If they are wise men they will take a sup
ply of the famous Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup.
Newsy Prayers.
A correspondent of the Chicago
Tiibune, who has been visiting at
Northfield. Mass., has something to
say about Brother Moody's home hab
its. "He usually writes until mid-
nigh," she reports, "but is up in any
kind of weather for his morning ride,
accompanied by some friend or his
little son Paul. Breakfast with the
family at eighths followed by devotions.
'We always hear the news in papa's
prayers, for he prays for everything
and everybody, and we often look at
each other in amazement at hearing of
the death of some friend, some one's
work, or at the development of some
new scheme of his own.'
Tiiey Didn't Dare.
"You did not dare speak to me in
that manner before I married you, ir!
she indignantly exclaimed. "No. nor
ym didn't dare come cavorting
around me in curl papers and carpet
slippers, before I married \ou, ma'am'"
he retorted. Then she cried and he
profanified.
