The trying troubles of women result from catarrh. Mrs, Colonel Hamilton and others recommend Pe-ru-tta. AMANf I r SA f ;l M lives of our xHk MS; A Mrs. Hamilton's picture is printed here, and her statements about Pe-ru-na find echo in the hearts of women the country through. "It gives me much pleasure," writes Mrs. J. A. Bashor of Knoxville Tenn " to recommend to the public such a valuable remedy as Pe-ru-na." ' ' " My health was completely broken down, and had been for almost a vear I could not rest day or night, but suffered constantly untold misery.

Mr. John H. McCarty living on Williams street extension, says: "All Masons are more or less troubled with their kidney;, es pecially if thev have worked at the tra le for some time. My kidneys troubled me for fonr or five yt a s with bearing down pains which were always worse in the morning. I had to keep a stooping position at my work the greater (part of the day, and tbe pain in my back and hips was excru ciating, at times so bad that I was hardly able to finish my day's work. My wife got me a box of Doan'a Kidney Pills at Andrews' drug store. The strong recommendations in favor of them tnducsd me to try them. I found them just as' represented, a grand, good kid ney medicine. They relieved the pains in my back and hips and it is seldom that I feel it. When I do it is of little conaeanence for I take a few doses of Doan's Kidney Pills and it soon parses away.

The ent it after an old painting of man rambling with Death with his life as atake. Behind the man stauds his good angel striving to save him. This game with life as the stake is the every-day game of men and women. Behind the player stands the good angel Nature, striv ing to preserve the life. Even when the game is almost in Tkatl,B lititwlu the man who turns to Nature and lets her help him may yet save himself. Medical science knows this, and its highest authori ties affirm that th utmost medical skill can do is to help Nature. The great success of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery in curing watd bodies, wtak lungs, and obstinate And lingering coughs, is based on the recognition of this fundamental scientific truth. "Golden Medical Discovery " supplies Nature with body building, tissue repairing, muscle making materials, in condensed and con centrated form. With this help Nature supplies the strength to throw off diseases of the lungs, heal the sick stomach, re establish the digestive and nutritive organs in sound health, purify and enrich the blood, and nourish the nervs. If your dealer offers something "just as good," it is probably better for him; it pays better. But you axe thinking of the cure not the profit, so there's nothing "just as good " for you. Say so. & a letter received from A. D. Weller, Esq., of Penaacola, Escambia Co., Fla. (Boa 544), he states : " I have, since receiving your diagnosis of my case as stomach troubl and liver com plaint, taken eight bottles of the Golden Medi cal Discovery,' and must say that I am trans formed from a walking shadow (as my friends called me), to perfect health. I value your remedies very highly and take pleasure iu recommending them to any and all who suffer f I did.

THE PASSING OF MANDEVIL "Spasm of the glottis," said the colo nel, "is good enough for a jury, but what Mandevil was quite clear he was going to die of that night and what I am quite clear I saw him die of was just simply strangulation. There came that which took him by the throat and clutched the life out of him between a pretty little thumb and four 6 fingers. I saw the Harks." Now, as Mandevil had come to an end in the midst of the supper crowd nt the Savarin hotel, the colonel's presentment of the matter appeared somewhat steep. Still, as a rule, his perceptions were pro fessional. He was unacquainted with the nse of the imaginative faculty, and to produce any very marked psychological impression upon him you would have to operate. His auditors took the steepness without impertinent comment. How was he going to get over it, though? "Ah," the narrator said, going back again into the depths of his chair, "now you're asking me! Of course there's that story of the family curse, you know. Be lieve in that sort of thing? They did. Don't much wonder either. And, 1 sup pose, if you do believe you've got a fam ily curse upon you you're apt to do things that help it along and make it all tbe eas ier for the next lot to believe in it too. Well, the trouble began in the first Kir- ton's time our chap's grand uncle. Over a woman it was, as per usual. "An extremely fascinating little devil this Lady Lilith, by all accounts, but not nearly careful enough, with a lord and master like that. When he found Ik-, out, he took her in hand so seriously thai the next thing was a funeral. However, she mnst have had considerable interest somewhere, because you are bound to be lieve she certainly came back. Her hus band was found dead on the floor of his room one morning, with the look of de spair on his face and her sign manual on his throat same as I saw on his grand nephew's, if you like. That was her lead off. There have been nothing but male Mandevils born since, and not one of 'em has died in his bed, they tell you. Don't say that I stick out particularly for dy ing in mine, you know. Three genera tions of it, though, seems to mean some thing. And that's not all. The first Kir ton had two younger brothers. Nothing happened to the second, who succeeded till he had seen all his sons wiped out except the last another Kirton. Then the father was shot in a duel, and within the year the son was come for, just like his uncle. ThJt let in the son of the third brother, who was the father of our man. He and I were commissioned in Ours the same day. Crimea, India, Africa and the rest of it. He never got a scratch. A year and two days ago he put himself ; accidentally, they printed it. ell. there you are. "After all that do you wonder our Jonn nle the last Kirton felt that be was down to be come for like the other two? If he didn't, what's the nse of heredity? Tou say this sort of thing is all rot.

You bet, he'd thought of that, aud what stopped him wasn't prejudice nor want of pluck nei ther. Well, the life he lived that last year would have been enough in the case of the average man. He saw it out, though, mind you, if nothing had hap pened to him after all he'd be in a luna tic asylum touight. "Friday he'd asked me to dine with, him here. Then we were to go to the Empire and end up with a partie carree at the Savarin. I noticed we dined not at my regular table in the corner, but right iu the middle of the room, with other tables all round ns. Same at the Empire kept in the crowd all the time. Same at the Savarin centered the whote show. What's more, he'd get his man Somers behind his chair. What did I think was going to happen? Well, it struck me that Kirton was so infernally sober, considering that it might all ba going to mean jimjams. We were a bit late sitting down. Kirton faced the door. He had Lady Blanche on his right and mamma on the left, and 1 faced him. It was close upon 12 before we'd got to cof fee. I'd kept an eye on Kirton all along. You know the Mandevil sort of face about the color of a new drum head. Then he was atariug right through me at the door, and his face had got to be the color of that cigar ash. Behind me there seemed all at once a kind of commotion. When I looked round, the people between us and the door were getting out of their chairs. "All the chatter nnd the clatter seemed -to stop. I fancy one or two women squeaked. I heard, one woman back of me cry out 'What's that?' to the chap she was with. Then everybody seemed to ba staring straight at us. There was Kir ton, sort of piuned back in his chair ia a fit, you'd hare said his hands close to his throat, at grips with nothing; his eyes half out of hi9 head and his face well, like no other fellow's face that I ever saw going through till then. There was a sort of stampede. Somers actually told me afterward that he felt it every time he tried to get near his master felt some thing between 'em like death, he said, till it was all over. Somers' idea was that Kirton was at grips with this something all the time. He's pretty matter of fact, as a rule, too. "When I got back, after seeing the wo men off the premises, Mandevil was ly ing limp iu his chair, with his head on the back of it, dead as Julius Caesar. " 'Look at that, sir,' Somers whispered to me. Well, certainly, there they were on his throat, plain enough the little thumb and the six and a quarter fingers. "Did I -feel anything unusual myself? Well, I remember feeling an unusnal sort of draft at the back of my neck, just be fore it began, and telling the waiter to see if there wasn't a window open somewhere. "Do I believe in It all?
