The battle of llorodino, fought be
tween the French and Russians near
Moscow in 1812, was the most mur
derous fight, not only of the last cen
tury, but, perhaps, of the last 500
The records show that Borodino
engaged armies of from ! 20,000 to
130,000 on each side; that there was
but one day of vigorous fighting: that
the French, after pouring a most
murderous cannon fire upon the Rus
sians, advapeed upon the Russians
position, were repeatedly repulsed
with terrible loss, and finally rushed
the soldiers of tbe Czar off their feet
and out their vantage ground. The
French won, but lost 12,000 killed on
field and 28,0<X) wounded. Fifteen
thousand Russians were slain and 30,
000 wounded. Out of about 250,(XX)
men who made up tho contending ar
inies, 85,000, or 34 per cent.—-mi.re
than one-third, were struck by bullets,
bayonets or swords.
At Waterloo about 45,000 men
killed or wounded out of per
haps 200,000 engaged. At (lettysburg
about 100,000 fought, and each army
had approximately, 3,000 killed and
14,000 wounded. In the Wilderness
probably 2(X),000 men were in action,
and the fight, which lasted a week or
more, resulted in a combined loss of
about 8,000 killed and 40,000 woqnd
Borodino, a fight now almost for
gotten, which had no influence on the
history of the world, and which, so
far as actual results went, need not
have been fought, was the blood
iest of modern battles. Napoleon's
victory availed him nothing, for he
was burned out of Moscow anyway,
and the Russians simply sacrificed
men in a vain attempt at a triumph
which the snows of winter soon
brought them anyhow,
gory of battles was also the most
useless, and is now one of the least
remembered.—Chicago Journal.

The story of " the oldest dinner
which has ever been eaten," is told
by the Brussels correspondent for the
New York Herald. According to this
correspondent, an antiquary in the
city of Brussels named'Goebel invited
his friends to this spread, a descrip
tion of which is given by one of the
guests as follows: ''At that dinner I
ate apples that ripened more than
eighteen hundred years ago; bread
made from wheat grown before the
children of Israel passed through the
Red sea, spread with butter which
was made when Elizabeth was queen
of England; and I washed down the
repast with wine which was old when
Columbus was playing barefoot with
the hoys in Genoa The apples were
from an earthen jar taken from the
ruins of Pompeii. The wheat was
taken from a chamber in one of the
Pyramids, the butter from a stone
shelf in an old well in Scotland, where
for several centuries it had lain in an
earthen crock in icy water, and the
wine was recovered from an old vault
in the city of Corinth. There were
six guests at the table, and each had
a mouthful of bread and a teaspoon
ful of wine, but was permitted to help
himself bountifully to the butter,
there being several pounds of it. The
apple jar neld about two-thirds of a
gallon. The fruit was sweet and as
finely flavored as if it had been picked
blit yesterday."
An Ohio paper hits the nail on the
head when it says: "Man's business
requires haste. The average business
and profession man < its in a hurry
and gets dispepsia. lie walks in a
hurry and gets appople xy. He talks
in a hurry and gets the lie. He does
business in a hurry and becomes a
bankrupt. He reads in a hurry and
is superficial. He votes in a hurry
and produces corruption. He marries
in a hurry and gets a divorce. He
trains his children in a hurry and de
velopes spendthrifts and criminals.

Mr. John H. Cullom, editor of the Gar

of congratulations to the manufacturers
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy as
follows: Sixteen years ago when our
first child was a haby he was subject to
croupy spells and we would be very un
easy about him. We began using Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy in 1877, and
finding it such a reliable remedy for
colds and croup, we have never been
without it in the house since that time.
We have five children and have given
it to all of them with good results. One
good feature of this remedy is that it is
not disagreeable to take, and our babies
really like it. Another is that it is not
dangerous, and there is no risk from
giving an overdose. I congratulate you
upon the success of your remedy." For

Does Your Wife Have to Beg ?
"He gave me an allowance of 20
cents a day for household expenses,
and 1 had to wear my brother-in-law's
clothing in order to keep warm," tes
tified a woman in a New York divorce
Sounds like a domestic tragedy
from the abode of pinching poverty.
It is nothing of the kind. The hus
band was a fair sample of the men
who believe that women should not
be trusted with money.
There are thousands of them. They
are close-fisted and niggardly, except
when their own comfort is in question
They dole out nickles and pennies to
the wife. They question every bill.
They never lose an opportunity to
preach household economy and thrift.
Ask one of those fellows why he
does not give his wife a generous
allowance and pay it to her as prompt
ly and cheerfully as he did any other
debt, and he will say: "She has no
need of money. I provide for her
He is a liar, and a miserable one, in
many cases. And he doesn't under
stand women.
It is doubtful if there ever was a
wife who liked to ask for money. It
is humiliating. It stings her. The
mere fact that she has to plead for
it is a tacit confession that it goes to
her as a favor, not as a matter of
right and justice.
We have in mind one family where
the wife, in thirty years, had just
$25 in money from her husband. He
paid her bills, but made her account
for every item. She could not give
away a nickel without consulting him.
He had an ample income. He be
lieved that he was a kind and indulg
ent husband. Instead, he was a good
deal of a brute, and his wife knew it.
She went without things rather than
be a beggar. She was humiliated be
cause of lack of money a thousand
times, and endured it rather than face
the domestic inquisition that would
follow a request for funds.
The average wife possesses more
thrift and purchasing judgment than
her husband- If she is the right kind
of a wife, and most wives are, she can
be trusted. She has a right to a portion
of the earnings of her husband. She
has as much right to demand an ac
counting of her husband as he has to
insist on a detailed report of every
penny she has expended
Most women would rather have a
small allowance than a larger uncer
tainty. Five dollars, as a matter of
justice, is better than five times five
begged and given begrudgingly.
Ask your wife what she thinks of
this proposition. Perhaps with a lit
tle wise financiering and exercise of
real justice, you can add immensely to
her happiness and your own.—Little
Rock Advertiser.
Climatic Cures.
The influence in the climatic condi
tions in the cure of consumption is very
much overdrawn. The poor patient,
and the rich patient, too, can do much
better at home by proper attention to
j 00( j digestion, and a regular use of
| German Syrup. Free expectoration in
the morning is made certain by German
Syrup, so is a good night's reat and the
absence of that weakening cough and
debilitating night sweat,
nights and the exhaustion due to cough
ing, the greatest danger and dread of
the consumptive, can be prevented or
stopped by taking German Syrup liber
ally and regularly. Should you be able
to go to a warmer clime, you will find
that of the thousands of consumptives
there, the few who are
regain strength are those who use Ger
man Syrup. Trial bottles. 26.; regular

From Paris comes the story of a
Philadelphian, a wealthy and most es
timable lady, says the Philadelphia
Press, who long has made her home
in the American colony there, and
who, accustomed to doing nearly all
her shopping in one of the large Pari
sian department stores, noticed that
whenever she went from one depart
ment to another she was always es
corted by a clerk, who handed her
over to the other, saying:
Struck by the peculiarity of this
oft-repeated password, as she thought
it to be, she sought out the proprie
tor as she was leaving the establish
ment and asked him:
"Pray, what does 'two-ten' mean?
I noticed that each clerk repeated it
to the next as I passed from one
counter to the other."
It means nothing, madam. I assure
you," replied the proprietor. "It is
just a password they are in the habit
of exchanging."
But the lady was not satisfied, and
when the porter, a mere lad, brought
home her purchases, she said:
"My boy, would you like to earn
some money easily?"
He quickly gave his assent to the
"Then tell me what 'two-ten' means,
and I will give you four francs."
The youth showed signs of aston
ishment, but quickly answered:
"Don't you know, madam? Why,
it means, ' Keep your eyes on her ten

Bill Nye and the Cow.
When I was young and used to
roam around over the country and
gather watermelons in the light of
the moon, I used to think I could
milk anybody's cow, but I don't think
so now. I do not milk the cow un
less the sign is right, and it hasn't
been right for a good many years.
The last cow I tried to milk was a
common cow, born in obscurity, kind *
of self-made cow. I remember her
brow Was low, but she wore her tail
high and she was naughty, Oh, so
naughty. I made a commonplace
remark to her. One that is used in
the very best society, one that need
not give offense. I said "So"—and
she "Soed." Then I told her to "Hist"
and she " Histed." But I thought she
overdid it. She put too much expres
sion in it. Just then 1 heard some
thing crash through the window of
the barn and fall with a thud outside.
Ths neighbors came to see what
caused the noise. They found that I
had done it getting through the win
dow. I asked the neighbors if the
barn was still standing. They said it
was. Then I asked them if the cow
was injured much. They said that
she seemed quite robust. Then I re
quested them to go and calm the cow
a little, and see if they could get my
plug hat off her horns. I am buying
all our milk from a milkman I select
a gentle milkman, who will not kick,
and I feel as though I can trust him.
Then, if he feels as though he can
trust me, it's all right.
