Tho Only Romody in tho "World, Ex cept ft Surgical Operation, That Will Cortainly Curo Any Form of Pilos. The study of physicians, the experi ments of chemists, tho loudly adver tised pretensions of quacktt, havo been for year3 expended In ono direction, to find a pile cuio that will cure. The results havo been a number of harmless, and In moat cases useless ointments, suppositories and even In ternal remedies, which the public have weighed In the balance of experience and found wanting; nearly all of them gave some relief, but nothing approach ing a radical curo resulted from thise preparations. The remedy lequlred Is ono that Im mediately stops the pain bo severe In most cofies of piles, nnd then by con tracting tho small blood vessels (cnpll larles) to their normnl size, produces a radical curo by reducing nnd finally absorbing tho tumors and healing the lnilamcd, raw mucous surfaces Until two years ngo, no such remedy had been produced, but at that time suppository won placed upon the market, which has since proven Itself to be the long sought permanent cure for this common and distressing trouble It has rapidly become famous through out tho United States and Canada, nnd Is now sold by nenrlv nil druggists un der the name of the Pyramid Pile Cure.

POPOCATEPETL. Comparatively Easy of Access Tho Viow from tho Summit Is Ono of Surpassing Grandour Above tho Snow Line. From Modem Mexico. The sulphur house at Ranrho Tlama. cas Is the; really Important station on a tilp to the peak of Popocatepetl. Here we arrived at dark nfter a lido of four or five hours on horseback from Ame cumeca, through a beautiful valley at first with Indian huts on cither side, then grain fields by the side of clear limpid streams l nulling down from the melting snows of the two great moun tains which seemed to gain In grandeur and elevation as wo approached their bises. Lenvlng Ixtncclhttall to tho left, we entered a load which has evi dently been In use for many years as It Is so deep for several miles that we, on horseback, could not hoe over tho banks, of the almost level coun try on either side. ROADS AXD BRIDLE PATHS. Entering the pine timber we found a good mad for a. long distance, which la used In crossing to Pucbla. How over, near tho top of the saddle be tween tho two mountains, we left this 1-o-uI, and crossed a small stream which In Its violent descent roared as If to s.raro us fiom our purpose. We had now only bildle paths, In some places very pootly defined, always very steep and slippery, over fallen timber and rocks, under low-hanging limbs where wo were forced to He close to the necks of our horso, nnd on as cending steep places hold to their manes not to slip out of the saddles. Then came the rain to add to our dif ficulties, and for two hours wo wero drenched so that we did not appreciate the ginnd scenery through which we wero passing. There aro many deep goigcs, but In no place is the trail so near that it Is very dangerous I think there Is not another hlgn moun tain In the world so accessible nnd at tended with so little real danger In Its ascent as Popocatepetl. In most places tho soil Is a deep loam, formed of the decomposed ashes cast out by the volcano, and which now produces a gradual slope to the snow line, most ly covered by the z.acaton grass and pine timber. On arrival nt TIamacas wo found the sheds where in years past the sul phur was icflnc'd, and In these we tried to mike ourselves comfortablo until morning. Witli a lnrgo fire in the middle of the floor nnd the use ot some small earthen rots wo prepared our coffee and supper. Wo spread our clothing out to diy. and passed a mis erable night wrapped In our blankets, with our feet to the fire. A 4 o'clock we awoke our guides and btepped nut to see If It was light enough to pre pare for the ascent of the mountain. UP THE MOUXTAIX. Our guides told us to eat but little, but to take a. lunch with us. They then wrapped our feet In woolen clothes to protect them fiom the cold and snow. Mounting our hoit-es wo lode thtough the timber and across a barranca whose sides weie fcoft ushes in which our horses hunk at eveiy step; then above the timber line, through the zacaton grass, which leaches into the snow. Finding the snow extending faither down the mountain than usual our guides advis ed ustorldcas faraspossible in older to save our strength, but soon our hoises were panting and able to go only u few steps at u time. So we dl'mount ed and prepaied for tho Journey on foot. We had nearly 4,000 feet to as cend over a smooth suiface of snow so stceD that we went in 2lgzag fash ion, stopping every few steps to lie down presumably to admire the scen ery. To the left lay the valley rt Mex ico, Mill In the s'ladovv, except in a few high places, which tho early sun had tlnud with gold. Almost directly under us we could see the town Ame eameca with the Sacromonte and thu v.hlto convent buildings, and beyond the three lakes. Chalco, Xochlmllco and Texcoco, glisten. The tun lit up tho Milres and towers of Mexico City," and It seemed tin If the whole vvoilel was. under us. The valley of Puoblii was hidden by light, llecey clouds dilven from tho gulf coast, and above them toward Arizaba's peak, with Itf, beau tiful white dome, and the castellated toweis of Mallnche AT TUF CRATER'S KIM. Finally, at 11 JO o'clock, out guldu KUld. "Alll cMa el crater. ' tend in a few moments we were on the ilm, warned by the guide not to go too nea Its edges. We throw ourselves down, and at first could only jinnt for breath, the only sound being the loud thumping of our heartu In chorus. In a shoit time we wero able to louse out selves, take a swallow of cognac, eat a nweet lemon and a c tucker and enjoy tho awful ginndeur ot tho scene. Beforo us vvaa a gteat black opening of an oval shape, longest fiom north to south, with Its walls of obsidian to a depth of rive or six: hundred feet. Owing to overhanging walls we could not seo tho lowest point. On tho far ther side was a gteat patch of yellow and from Its crevasses rose a clouel of steam, or, as we weio told, sulphu rous gas, which had melted tho mows ubove Tho gulden infoimed us that this Is where tho sulphur rock was taken out, and ono said he had stayed down there for thirty days at a time, and tho other had made a trip each day from the sulphur house to the crater, tuklng down tho rock to be re fined at Tlamacus. WONDERFUL ECHOES. I found It took n great effort to walk a few steps and moie to make a lew pictures. My body was at, heavy aa lead and my mental powers seemed dormant. I seemed as If Just uwaken ed from a sleep. After a time our breath came more easily and our heait beats became more natural, but vet there was tho dazed feeling. The snow was too solft to permit our walking round tho rim, as It was liable to slide down with tho weight of a person. Heating a Strang echo from our voices, I drew my revolver and flied several shots Into the cratei wlibh echoed back nnd forth with n really 'wonderful elfect, followed In a moment by a crnsh on the opposite sldo ns n great mass of lock nnd snow, loosened perhaps by tho waves of sound set In motion or possibly by a glancing ball, fell Into the abyss. It wus llko a great peal of thunder amid the awful stillness which soon bottled over ev erything as before. We seemed to look over the top of Ixacchlhuatl, and as tho clouds by this JONAS LONG'S SONS. The Great Store Will Be Closed This (Thursday) Morning, Until p. m., Owing to the Funeral Obsequies of the Late Rt Rev. William 0' tiara, D. D. JQNAS LONG'S SOUS ! Comer Lackawanna time had covered the valley of Pue bla most entirely It looked like a great white sea with billows rising and fall ing. The valley of Mexico was as a flock of white sheep on a hillside, bo for below and so smull did the clouds appear. Adjusco was a greut black Islands, as the misty haze was around the Cucrnavaca valley and the llttlo mountains seemed as If suspended in air, for so white und dazzling was the snow on the mountain below us that we could harellv hoe without tho use of colored glasses, and scarcely noticed that we had anything under our feet Time seemed uses, and ut ter only twenty minutes our guides suggested the return. I focused my camera on my guide, seated on the petnte, or lush mat, leady to start down on, pet haps tho most wonderful coasting In tho woild, and then took my seat behind him and hud my com panion press tho automatic shutter. THU DKSCKXT. In fifteen minutes wo were at the snow line once more, whenco we had been M hours In ascending. Our guides said -they had made the tiip down In tlve minutes when tho snow was sufllciently haul. We found some places to soft that my guide pulled me on the lmpiovlsed toboggan.
