WIT ASD HUMOR.
What does “Good Friday mean,’’ asked
one Halsted street urchin of another.
“You’d better go home and read Robin
son Crusoe,” was the withering reply.
Mrs Popinjay—“Socrates, why don't you
sav something to Angelena about sitting up
so hte with young Poseyboy?" Mr. Popin
jay_"Me! Why, I rather like it. It saves
worrying about burglars.
Gentleman (to bird fancier). Can this
parrot talk?” Bird fancier. “\es, sir.
Gentleman (to parrot). “Polly want a
cracker?” Parrot (solemnly). “Chestnut. ’
Gentleman. “I’ll take him.”
Miss Clara (at the sea -horej — How grace
fully young Mr. Dc I.yle handles the rib
b>ns when driving, doesn’t he? Miss Jen
nie—He ought to. my dear; he has charge
of that department at Silk Satin's, you
know.
Brown—You don’t look well lately. Rob
inson. Robinson—No; 1 can’t sleep a
night on account of lung trouble. Brown
_Nonsense; your lungs area:! right ? Rob
inson—Yes, mint* are: the trouble is with
the baby's.
O, Harold, you don't know what I’d give
to see you go to work with a will. Way
ward Brother—Go to work with a will, eh?
Well, my dear sister, you just wait till un
cle dies and you’ll see me do it, it the will
doesn’t suit me.
“Times are a trifle dull, -dr,” he said, ad
dressing a fellow passenger. Not with
me.” was the reply, "my business shows a
gratifying increase? every \ ear. •»»: *
% t the nature of your business.” ‘‘Certain
ly. I'm the fool killer.’
“I see,” remarked Farmer Hoedown ol
Hackensack to his wife the other day as he
was reading his morning paper, “that I’rof.
Foliem of Loudon -ays fencin’ is healthy
exercise for girls. Now that s what I tmd
Meliudv and Mary Jane when we was a
laying that thousand-rod worm-fence last
fall.”
“What if l were one of tin -? husbands,
my dear, who get up cross in the morning
and bang things around and kick every
thing just because the coffee is cold.
“John,” responded the wife, “I would make
it hot for you.” As her words admitted of
more than otic interpretation, John said
nothing more about the coffee.
Judge (to prisoner —“You admit the
shooting ? Prisoner—“Oh, yes. your Hon
or. I shot him until he looked like a slice
of schweizer cheese." Judge—“W hat was
the provocation ? Prisoner—“He was car*
rving an umbreha horiz mtilly up the stair
way of the elevated road." Judge—“Jus

pieces of pi- are too tnu-u for little b>*ys.
The older y u n w. Bobby, the more wis
dom you will gain Bobby, was silent,
but only for a moment. Well, ma. he
said, “grandma is a good deal older than
you are."
“May 1 venture to tell the old. old story,

HOG CHOLERA.
CURE AND PREVENTIVE'
(Patented April 27, 18SS. i
To the Pt'BLic.—We wish to saj that this
great and only remedy is not the result of any
chances, neither is it a nostrum for speculation,
but has been experimented with and thorough
ly tested for two years prior to our purchasing
it. The roan who first used it was Moses
Frantz, who had charge of a herd ot 2500 hogs
in 1884. 500 of these died with cholera. Mr.
Frantz and Mr. Eaclius experimented in every
conceivable manner to check the rasages of
the disease, dissecting many dead hogs, and
compounding many prescriptions, until they
happily hit upon a remedy. Before Mr. r rantz
could put his remedy before the people he died
from blood poisoning, brought on by cutting
up dead hogs which had died with cholera.
He left all his trilling worldly effects to Mr.
Eaclius, who had not the necessary means to
put it before the public, and who was anxious
that some of his old friends should have it.
When Mr. Eaclius came here we had little faith
in his cure, but, after testing it in many severe
cases at home—notably, Mr. Rhodes and -Ir.
Felteberger’s—we became convinced beyond
doubt that it was all he claimed for it. Since
then we have used it in many severe cases,
and the result is before the public. Not .i»sin
gle hog has died which we treated, and in no
case have anv taken it when fed this remedy.
It will cure Hog Cholera, it will prevent Hog
Cholera. We have been at heavy expense
placing a cure beforethe people,and now only
ask that they appreciate our efforts by giving
it a trial.
It will pav vou to feed it if your hogs are
well. It will kill every manner of louse, insect
life in hog, trichinae not excepted. It will kill
every nit and louse on the hog. It will cleanse
your hog of scrutf or mange. It will increase
the appetite five-fold. It is just what every
body has been looking for.
HOG CHOLERA!
The disease gets its origin from a low order
of insect life—on and in the animal. There is
in the medicine an ingredient which extermi
nates insects and nits, both internally and ex
ternally. ....
me muncys no uoi ucb piupi-iit,
also provided for.
Dissecting hundreds of hogs has shown that
mortification always sets in before death, which
is prevented by an antiseptic. Ninety-seven
per cent, of hogs afflicted are constipated. To
obviate this, the medicine contains a laxative
and resolvent.
In the other three per cent, the bowels ere
found to be loose, which is overcome by the
use of Tincture of Opium with the medicine,
as per directions on the bottle.
The medicine also contains a powerful tonic
to build up the debilitated condition of the hog.
PRICE, $1.00 PER QUART BOTTLE.
Jones it Biteek—1Gentlemen—I have used
tiie patented Hog Cholera preventive with
successful effect. It is an excellent remedy and
certainly a public blessing.
