The^Arablan Mare.
-
The most marked equine distinction be
! tween the African and Asiatic Arabs is that
the latter ride mares, while the former use
i stadions. I have reason to believe that far
j out on the Libyan Desert proper the same
i rule as to mares prevails. But on the edge
' of the desert the stallion is preferred,
j Among the Syrian Bedouins the reverse is
the rule. The mare is the darling of the
sheik, the pet of the family. She is treated
as a child ; fur better, really, than the chil
dren. The most perfect of the stallions are
kep', the rent arc sent into the cities for sale, i
Tills accou its for the fact that the traveler
sees only stallion* The price paid f>»r a
good average f< ur year old horse delivered
in Damascus or Jerusalem runs from ili'rty
to fifty dollars; a fine horse runs from sev
enty to one hundred dollars; there is no
price put on a stunner; you must negotiate
as for a homestead—perhaps as you would
lor a wife.
The high bred Arabian Desert mares are
alwaxs kept in condition. They are thir,
and their naturally small frame makes them
appear more so. "Ynu raise buffaloes, not
horses," an Arab of the desert wilTsay to
the owner of a fine, well-rounded stallion.
The splendid beauty of the Arabian as we i
understand it is to him a delusion. He hit"
but one test-»-rai,el and Lite speed and eudur
mice which ought to come of race. The
Arabians which the ordinary traveler picks*
out as the finest are those which fill the eye.
I'lie finest mare in the d^it may be far
from a beauty j she is a ' rum un to look at
but a devil to go ."—Harper's Alagatine.
linn Joseph C. Hendrix, Representative
in Congress from New York, and Hon.
Richard Bartholdi, Representative from
Mi'souri, used to be fellow reporters in
Brooklyn years ago. Hendrix represented
the New York Sun and Barlholdt the Brook
lyn Freit I‘res*c. The latter, in the course
of time drifted west, and rose to he a prom
inent figure in I oca I politics in St. Louis,
where lie now edits an influential German
paper. Hendrix staid in New York, hut
in a general way experienced the same dis
position of a benevolent providence as his
former colleague of the press. They turn
ed up iti Washington about the same lime,
and there was a cordial greeting as they
shook bands.
“What are you doing in Washington?'’
asked Hendrix.
“That's a fair question," said Barlholdt,
'but suppose you tell me w hat you are do
ing here ?’’
“Wbv, I’m a member of Congress,’’ said
Hendrix.
“So am I,” said Barlholdt “How did
you get into politics ?’’
“Oh,” said Hendrix, “1 was elected a
member of the school board.”
"So was I,” said Barlholdt.
“Then I was elected president of the
school board,” said Hendrix. .
“So was I,” iiaid Barlholdt.
“Then I was elected to Congress,” con
tinued Hendrix.
“And so was I.” exclaimed Bartholdi.
“Well,” said Hendrix, “you and I must
have been horn under the same conjunction
of planets.”
Both bad reached Congress by precisely
parallel lines, after separating in the report
ers’ room in the Brooklyn City Hall Build
ing, and met after a term of years in which
they ha<i completely lost trace of each
other.—Post.

Type made from paper is the latest nov
elty. A process has been patented in Eng
land by which large tvpe used for printing
placard* can be made from pulp. Such
letter* are at j resent cut on wood. The
pulp i* dessiccated, or reduced to a powdered
or comminuted stale, after which it is thor
oughly mixed with a waterproof liquid or
material, such as a paraffine oil or a drying
linseed oil, for instance. The mixture is
then dried, and subsequently pulverized.
Io the pulverized state it i* introduced into
a mold of the requisite construction to pro
duce the desired article, type or block, and
then subjected to pressure to consolida'e it,
and heated to render tacky, or adhesive, the
waterproof material.
.-t Happy Combination
of the most potent and active properties of
the whole vegetable kingdom, is that which
make* Dr. Bierce’s Favorite Prescription so
pre eminently above every other so called
woman’s rcstora ive in the market. Don't
stop short of the best! Don’t experiment
with worthless imita ions, when the world
acknowledges no superior to the original,
reliab'e, and only guara»fcrd remedy for the
hapry restoration of suffering a"d debilita
ted woman, t'ostsno hing if it don’t do just
as recommended. See guarantee on bottle

One of Washington’s bright women was
present while her husband discussed the
financial situation.
"I must confess,” he said, "that the mon
ey market has worried me a great deal.”
"It wasn’t the money market that wor
ried me,” observed hi* wife.
“What was it ?”
"It was the market money.”—Star.
LOSS OF PO WER
nnd vital fore* follow
loss of flesh, or ema
ciation. These com*
from impoverished
blood. Dr. Pierce’s
Golden Medical Dis
covery enriches tbs
blood, stops the waste
of strength and time,
and builds up be&lthy
flesh. Nasty Cod Liver
Oils add fat, but not
wholesome flesh. Thin, pale, puny and scrof
ulous children aro medo plump, n*y and ro
bust by the “ Discovery.” Tbev like it, too.
In recovering from “ Grippe, or in conva
lescence from pneumonia, fevers, or other
wasting diseases, it speedily nnd surely invig
orates and buiWLt up the whole system. As
an apjietizing, restorative tonic, it sets at
work all tbo pn* •esses of digestion and nu
trition, rouses every organ into natural ac
tion, nnd brings back health and strength.
If it doesn’t benefit or cure, in every case,
you have your money back.
It bas mrrd others of Catarrh—thousands
of them. Why not you ? Dr. Sage's Ca

‘The Favorite.”
I havo on hand the old St. George Chapel
Souvenir Spoon.
| The ruins of old St. George Chapel are 11
I miles from Charlee-Tuwn and an object of iti
! terest. The Chapel is supposed to have been
, erected as early as 1750— probably as late as
1700. It is mentioned in Henning’s Statutes
at Large as one of the Chapels more costly
(.ban many others. The site, which is on the
lands of Col. H. B. Davenport, is supposed to
have been donated by I>ord Fairfax. Iiiasup
posed to have been more elegant, hence more
costly, than others, because it wss located near
where tnanv wealthy Church-of-England peo
ple lived who would take pride in out-doing
their neighbors in the size and magnificence
of their houses of worship. At any rate, the
present ruin was once grand in its time. The
walls were of stone quarried in the vicinity.
• The other material is supposed to have been
brought from England. The roof was sheet
lead ; the window an I door frames of cedar
» wood; the floor in tiling; the pews *nc pul
pit in oak—elaborately carved. The soft,
grey old walls in summer time are ivy-hung—
but the Chapel, as pictured in the bowl of the
spoon, is a winter scene—the venerable pile
surrounded by leafless trees and the graves of
the olden-time covered with the ‘ beautiful
snow.'’ For sale by.
