We have all met people whose pride in •ibeir possessions is so great that they can see xo charms in those of others. A young beta xist was showing a party of ladies and gen tlemen through a conservatory of some of lie choicest plants. Among the visitors was • would-be young-looking, middle-aged lady who at every description volunteered the Matement that the plants and flowers she had at home were quite the equal of any thing here or indeed anywhere. Just as they were passing a giant cactus die was heard to exclaim: “Well, this is nothing extraordinary. I tares cactus at home that is still larger. I planted and reared it myself.” “Reared it yourself?” the professor gently observed. “How remarkable!

There is more Catarrh in this section of the country than all other diseases put to gether, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable. For a great many •ears doctors pronounced it a local disease, and prescribed local remedies, and by con stantly failing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incurable. Science has proven ntarrh to be a constitutional disease, and therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall’s Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only institutional cure on the market. It is taken internally in doses from 10 drops to a teaspoon ful.

This well-known statesman has Just been reelected to the United States senate from the state of lowa. No man in the west has a stronger hold on the people than Senator Gear, who is familiarly known as “Old Business." His home Is at Burlington, la., whose citizens have at various times been Instrumental in having him elected a member of the state legislature, speaker of the house of rep resentatives, congressman and governor. In 1894 be was elected United States sen ator, in the face of strong opposition. He has lived in lowa since 1843, arriving there at the age of 18. USING THE CIAILDS AS A SCREEN. The picture reproduced here illustrates the method which Capt. Percy Scott, of the British battleship Terrible, has employed to mount one of the ship's search light “flashes’* on a railway truck. It is said by observers that signaling can be carried on at a distance of 30 miles by using the clouds as a screen whereon to flash the signals. This method has been employed successfully in communicat ing with the beleaguered force at Ladysmith, as well as at Kimberley. The crit ics of the system assert, however, that its real value Is nil, as the enemy can read the signals as readily as those for whom they are Intended. MISS SUSAN B. ANTHONY.

HIS MISTAKE. a« American Girl Give* an English man • Little Light on A Louisville girl, who was recently in Germany, met a young English officer who was in the same city, and, in fact, in the same house with her for two months, study ing German for his promotion. Like most Europeans he had the usual absurd ideas about the girls of this country, who, in the minds of the untraveled foreigner, are rather hoyden creatures who smoke and have other masculine traits. . , After dinner one day, in the early ac quaintance of the couple, the officer offered the Louisville girl a cigarette, and, upon her refusing it, he said: ... “Why, I thought all the girls in the United States smoked.” . “So we do,” replied the girl, ‘Tint never cigarettes: only pipes. If you will get that pipe off the mantelpiece in the next room I shall be charmed to smoke with you.” Not suspecting the joke she was playing on him, the officer brought the pipe and filled it. and it was not until he saw the wry faces his friend made in attempting to carry out the joke that he appreciated the situa tion. He was continuauy telling the Ameri can in a tone of surprise that she was jus# like the girls at home in England, and her rejoinder was: “Lieutenant, don’t you think a lady is a lady the world over?” —Louisville Courier- Journal. NEEDED THE SOAP. rhe Amiability of Women Shopper* in a Bargain Store Rush I* Trnlr Fetching. It was at a department store bargain coun ter for odds and ends. Women squeezed and elbowed and shoved to get alongside the counter. Frequently two of them happened to pick up the same bargain at one and the same time, and then they both retained their clutch on it and looked daggers at each other until the stronger of the two won the vic tory or the bargain was rent into ribbons. A haughty matron with an electric seal coat picked up a box containing three cakes of imported soap for eight cents at the same moment that an humble-looking little wom an in a faded tan coat had fastened her grasp on the box. “I believe I was the first to take hold of Ibis,” said the matron in the electric seal coat, freezingly. The humble-looking little woman held on for a minute, studying her antagonist, then she slowly relaxed her hold on the box. “Well, you can have it,” she said, amiably. “You look as if you need the soap.” The bargain counter is the place to ob serve how they love one another.—Washing ton Post.

MRS. BELVA A. LOCKWOOD, LATE CANDIDATE FOR THE PRESIDENCY. Mrs. Belva Lockwood, the eminent barrister, of Washington, D. C., is the only woman who has ever been a candidate for the Presidency of the United States. She is the best known woman in America. As the pioneer of her sex in the legal profession she has gathered fame and fortune. In a letter to The Peruna Medicine Company, she says: "Z have used your Peruna both for myself and my mother, Mrs, Hannah J, Bennett, now in her 88 th year, and I find it an invaluable remedy for cold, catarrh, hay fever and kindred diseases; also a good tonic for feeble and old people, or those run down, and with nerves unstrung," Yours truly, Belva A, Lockwood, Catarrh may attack any organ of the body. Women are especially liable to catarrh of the pelvic organs. There are one hundred cases of catarrh of the pelvic organs to one of catarrh of the head. Most people think, because they have no catarrh of the head, they have no catarrh at all. This is a great mis take, and is the cause of many cases of sickness and death. “ Health and Beauty” sent free to women only, by The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus, Ohio. ■ ■ ■■■ Dr. Williams' Indian Pile M'*’Saw ointment willcure Blind. »K ® 3 Bleeding and Itching I 4is "I Piles.

Something for Mothers to Think About EVERY CHILD born into the world with an inherited or early developed tendency to distressing, disfiguring humors of the skin, scalp, and blood, becomes an object of the most tender solicitude, not only because of its suffering but because of the dreadful fear that the disfiguration is to be lifelong and mar its future happiness and prosperity. Hence it becomes the duty of mothers of such afflicted children to acquaint themselves with the best, the purest, and most effective treat ment available. That the Cuticura remedies are all that could be desired for the alleviation of the suffering of skin-tortured in fants and children and the comfort of worn-out worried mothers has been demonstrated in countless homes in every land. Their absolute safety, purity, and sweetness, instantaneous and grateful relief, speedy cure, and great economy leave nothing more to be desired by anxious parents. Evidence is found in the ma ss of letters received from grateful parents, testifying to the incalculable bene fits they have derived from the use of these preparations in the treatment of infantile skin and scalp disorders. ■ There is a ring of truth and sincerity about the testimo nials here submitted that stamps them genuine, and when a mother writes, as does Mrs. E. Butler of 1289 Third Avenue, Brooklyn, N. Y., in simple, grateful language, of the good Cuticura has accomplished in her home, parents every where must regard these remedies as house hold necessities. Mrs. Butler says: •• My oldest boy, age nine years, was troubled with sores on different parts of the body, especially on the leg, about twenty-four In all. They were about the size of a flve-cent piece, and would fester very much and eject a pus. They were very painful. After my former experience with the cure of my little girl with Cuti cura remedies, I did not bother with the doctor in this case, but gave him the Cuticura treatment which completely cured him in four weeks. As a rule, my four children are very robust and healthy, these two, the baby and the eldest boy, being the only ones ever troubled with anything like this I mentioned, but thanks to Cuticura remedies they are all now in perfect health.'* What can be more convincing to a mother than the following graphic letter from Mrs. J. C. Freese of 300 South First Street, Brooklyn, N. Y.: “My baby was about four weeks old when he began to suffer from that terrible disease, eczema. I tried every remedy I thought would do him good. I even called in the doctor, but I used his medicine to no account. I did not know what to do with him. He cried all the time and his face was equal to a raw piece of meat. It was horrible, and looked as if there never was any skin on it. I had to carry him around on a pillow. I was fairly discouraged. I was then recommended to use Cuticura remedies. The first time I used them I could see the change. I used about half a box of Cuticura Ointment, and not one half cakeof Cuticura Soap, and at the end of one short week my baby was entirely cured.' There has never been a trace of it since. To-day his akin is as smooth and soft as a piece of silk.’* Another remarkable instance of the effectiveness of the Cuticura remedies is found in the terrible experience of the baby daughter of Mr. R. A. Lapham, 111% West Side Square, Springfield, 111. Mr. Lapham writes as follows: “ Our little daughter was troubled from her birth with eczema. Her face, arms, hands, and neck would break out with red pimples which would swell and become terribly inflamed, water would ooje out like great beads of perspiration, finally this would dry up and the skin would crack and peel off. She suffered terribly. Had to wear soft mittens on her hands to keep her from scratching. We gave two of our leading physicians a good trial, but neither of them helped her in the least. I purchased Cuticura Soap, Cuticura Ointment, and Cuticura Resolvent. She improved at once and Is now never troubled, although we used less than one bottle of Resolvent, three boxes of Cuticura, and Cuticura Soap.” In a few forceful words, Mrs. C. Brand of Conesville, N. Y., vividly portrays an experience common to many mothers, and her letter, which follows, is full of comfort and encouragement for anxious parents: “Two years ago this winter my boy began to break out with a scaly rash. It nearly covered his back and calves of legs. I heard glowing reports of CUTICURA remedies and thought to try them. Three cakes of Cuticura Soap, two boxes of Cuticura Ointment, one bottle of Cuticura Resolvent cured him. I think them wonderful remedies.” Send at once for this TWO-STEP MARCH.

(ilimt A Mg, HarMehead, Hm» The economv of the Cuticura treatment is shown by the letter of Mr. W. M. Nichell, of Lexington, Okl., who spent one thousand dollars with doctors, specialists, and medical colleges in a vain attempt to find relief for his little son. A friend recommended the use of the Cuticura remedies, and he gives the following account of the cure: “ My son, when he was six weeks old, had a breaking out on til top of his head. It spread all over his head, and then Mi »rw broke out from shoulder to wrist. Around his body and aroffld his legs from his knees to his ankles, was a solid scab. My haw doctor treated him for eighteen months, but no good was awoiu. pllshed. I tried four more, and then a medical college In St six months. No good yet. Spent not less than a thousand <K* lars In money and time. Old Mr. Barney Clap indited on trying Cuticura remedies, telling me he had a spell like my « M himself.

Thank the Lord, he In now fat, hearty, and stout as any boy, after six long years ot ItcW crying, and worrying. Cuticura remedies cured him." Three children in one household suffering simultane ously from eczema. Such was th« distressing condition of Mrs. Annie Ring of 615 East Thirteenth Street, JH* York City, who tells her experience in these words:- “My second child got eczema when seven months old. TM» months later my first child got it, and following him tbo » two years old, fell a victim. For twenty months they ,uB fearful agony. Their whole bodies, especially their faces./'’ sore and raw that the little ones were blind half the time. No can describe the suffering of my second child, whose vh“ le M was one bloody mass. He was constantly crying, coula F sleep, and he actually did not look human. I tried dywt doctor, but none afforded the slightest relief. I decided to try ‘ cura. The first application brought relief In each case,* fourteen days’ treatment with Cuticura Soap and Ointment, the worst case was cured, and the whole neign la surprised at the wonderful effect of Cuticuba.” One of the most wonderful of cures is bhat of the daughter of Mrs. G.
