most wonderful medicine,
is because it has never fail

The scientific men of to

every disease is
CAUSED BY MICROBES,

RADAM’S MICROBE KILLER
Exterminates the Microbes and drives them
out of the system, and when that is done you
cannot have an a- he or pain. No matter what
the disease, whether a simple case of Malaria

them all at the same time, as we treat all dis

Asthma, Consumption, Catarrh,
Bronchitis, Rheumatism, Kid

Guta iiait engineering skill, enterprise,
and capital have ju-.t succeed 'd in con
structing a new iitte between the Untied
States and Canada, a railway tunnel
under the St. Clair River from Sarnia to
Port Huron. Tint work marks a distinct
advance in engineering science owing to
novel au-l successful methods applied in
the construction. * Tho tunnel is 28,000
feet long from the begiuui g of one ap
proach to the end of the approach on tlie
opposite side, more than live miles Uf
this distance only G,(H0 feet, a little
more than a mile, are wholly under
ground, and of this only 2,310 feet, less
than half a mile, are under lire river.
There tiro 2,390 feet of tunnel under
Michigan soil and2,100 feet uud t ground
ou the oppo itc side of the river. Iho
following sentences outline fairly the

A remarkable increase in the amount
©f ugar import d into this comitry has
token place in the past few years, the
value of our imports of sugar, molasses,
etc., in the twelve month., ending June
30, 1883, amounting to $08,531,495, while
las' year it was $89,787,284. Iu neither

fin’ii the Hawaiian Islands, which last
year amounted to $11,539,142, and which
would swell the grand total to more than
$100,000,000. The increase is due. chiefly,
to the heavy increase in the imports of ;
liect sugar, which comes mainly from
Germany. In the twelve months ending
June 30, 1888, our imports of beet sugar
from Germany were about 2 per cent, of
oar total sugar imports, while last year
they were nearly 1G per c nt.; indeed,

Spectacles in Art.
Among tho figures forming part of the
architectural decorations of tho interior
of Henry VII’s chapel is one of a saint
reading a book and wearing a pair of
spectacles without side straps and of tho
form that used to I*o distinguished by
tho name of “goggles."
Such early spectacle glasses were cir
cular in form and lixed in frames or
rims of leather, connected by a waist or
curved piece of the same material
Leather lias a ct r • in elasticity, enough,
at least, to hold the glasses in position
on the nose. I have got bucli a pair,
probably not later than tho time of
Charles II.
These leather rimmed goggles appear
to have been succeeded by glasses of tho
same shapo with runs of tortoise shell
and a ste-1 waist. \u exami lo of tho
early part of the last century in my pos
! session, in the original black ti-h skin
! rase, shows that there was difficulty in
! attaching the waist to toe lim with tho
I necessary firioiie.-.s. Hence arose tho
rims with a rigid waist and side piec©3
f< |ceej' ig the “spectacles’* in position.
But they v. «ro heavy and clumsy,
whether iii tortoise shell or horn, and tho
difficulty still remained of making a re
liable bingo in sucli hr . tie material.
This seems to havo brought about tho
heavy gold, silver, aud metal rimmed
spectacles of our grandfathers.—[Notes

A Kilo Story.
Some fishermen engaged in Belfast
Lough recently picked up a very largo
seagull, which was seen approaching tho
boat with wings outspread floating on
the water, hut quite dead. The men
were puzzled to account for the progress
it made through the water, as it went
faster than the boat; but as it came near
it was found that, wound securely round
the body and under the wings, was a
string of cordage, which, on closer ex
amination, they discovered was attached
to a targe paper kite then flying above
them at a considerable height. Tho kite
furnished tho propelling power. Tho
bird had evidently, while flying at Bel
fast, got entangled in the string of a
boy’s kite, had been unable to extricate
itself, and, taking to the sea, had been
drowned in its efforts to obtain freedom.

find the journey a long one, not becatiM*
of the mites, for they are not so many —
only about 850 from San Franeisco, and
passed over by rail and carriage roads
in a day or two—but the way is so beau
tiful that oue is beguiled at every step,
and tho groat golden days and weeks
and months go by uncounted. How
vividly ray own first journey toYoseniite
comes to my mind, though made more
than a score of years ago, writes Johu
Muir in the Century. I 6et out afoot
from Oakland, on tho bay of San Frati
ci-co, in April. It was the blootu time
of the year over all the lowlands nud
ranges of tho coast; the landscape wns
fairly drenched with sunshine, the larks
were singing and the hills were so cov
ered with flowers that they seemed to 1k>
painted. Slow indeed was my progress
through theso glorious gardens, the first
of the California llora I had seen. Cat
tle and cultivation were making few
scars as yet, and I wandered enchanted
in long wavering curves, aware uow
and then that Yosemite lav to the east
ward and that some time I should find it.
0 i shiuiug morning, at the head of
Pacheco Pass, a landscape was dis
played that, after all my wanderings,
still appears as the most divinely beauti
ful and sublime 1 have ever beheld.
There at my feet lay tho great central
plain of California, level as a lake, 30 or
40 miles wide, 400 long, one rich furred
bed of golden composite, And along
the eastern shore of this lake of gold
rose the mighty Sierra, miles in height,
in massive, tranquil grandeur, so glori
ously colored and so radiant that it
seemed not clothed with light, but
wholly composed of it, like the wall of
6ome celestial city. Along the top, and
extending a good way down, was a rich
pearl gray belt of snow; then a belt of
blue and dark purple, markiug the ex
tension of tho forests; and stretching
along the baso of the rango a broad belt
of rose purple, where lay tho miners’
gold and the open foothill gardens-all
tho colors smoothly blending, making
a wall of light clear as crystal and in
effably fine, yet firm as adamant Then
it scorned to mo tho Sierra should be
called not the Nevada or Snowy Range,
but the Kango of Light And after 10
years in the midst of it, rejoicing and
wondering, seeing the glorious floods of
light that fill it—tho sunbursts of morn
ing among the mountain peaks, the
broad, noonday radiauco on tho crystal
rocks, the flush of tho nlpenglow, and
tho thousand dashing waterfalls with
their marvelous abundance of iriaed
spray—it still seems to mo a rango of
light. But no torrostiial beauty may
endure forever. The glory of wildness
has already departed from tho great cen
tral plain. Its bloom is shed, and so in
part is the bloom of tho mountains. In
Yosemite, even under tho protection of
the Government, all that is jierishablo is
vanishing space*. _
Originality Vermis Plagiarism.
The writer or thinker who puts an old
i loa into a now ami impressive form is
fully as much of a public benefactor as
the man who invents a new idea. Tho
man with an absolutely novel idea is a
phenomenon not often seen in history *>i"
literature. All of us are borrowers. If
ideas were refused recognition because
something similar had Iwen proposed
before, there would l»e a pretty outlook
for progress in civilization. Thi-* is as
true in literature as in history. The just
criterion of a lifernry id* a is not whether
it is new, but whether it is nbly put and
forcibly developed. Plenty of people
before Mr. Hubert Louis Stevenson’s day
had reflected upon man's dual nature;
but “I)r. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” was none
the less original for that; indeed, one of
the highest tributes which the public can
pay to a lit rary man is the confetsion
tiiat he has | ut into clear expression the
ideas which were not original, but which
luid floated vaguely In the human min 1
ever siuco man began to think. W ho in
the long succession of philosophers and
sages ever propounded a really new idea?
“There is nothing new under tho sun,”
said the Preacher. The originality of
history, pnuosopny, ana uwnHua u..n

liacilll on a Bald Head.
Dr. Saymonne claims to have isolat’d
a bacillus, called by him “Imcillus crini
vorax, ” which is the cause of alopecia.
It is, lie Bays, found only on the scalp
of man, other hirsute parts of the body
and also the fur of animals being fr<*«
from it The bacilli invade the hair
follicles and make the hair very brittle,
so that they break off to the skin. Then
the roots themselves are attacked. If
the microbes can be destroyed early in
the disease the vitality of the hairs may
be preserved, hut after the follicles are
invaded and all their structures injured
the baldness is incurable. Ihc following
is Dr. Haymonne’s remedy to fr.vent
baldness: Ten parts crude cod liver oil,
ten parts of the expressed juice of
onions, and five parts of mucilage or the
yelk of an egg are thoroughly shaken
together and the mixture applied to the
scalp and well rubbed in once a week.
Tliis, he asserts, will certainly bring
back the hair if the roots are not already
destroyed, but the application of the
remedy must be very distressing to the
patient'.-, frierols and neighbors.—[Med
