Asbestud is a physical paradox, yet one of nature's most marvelous prodnc tions. It has been called a mineralogical vegetable; it is both fi'orons and crys talline, elastic, yet brittle; a floating stone, which can be readily carded, spnn and woven into tissue. In Ger many it is known as steinflaclis (stone flax), and the miners of Qnebec give it quite as expressive a name?pierre coton (cotton stone) The asbestos mines of Qnebec are the moat famons in the world, yielding 85 per cent of the en tire ontpnt. Italy being the only com peting country, and there the indnstry is declining. Although Charlemagne is said to have had a taolecloth of asbestns, which he cleansed by throwing into the fire, it was practically unknown until 1850. The Italian mineral was then experi mented with and some years later put on the market. In 187S the first Cana dian mine v.-a a opened, and the prodnct steadily increased until 1890, when 0,800 tons, worth $1,200,000, were mined. There has since been a decline in value, the amount for 1890 being 12,200, worth only $480,000. Asbestos is flexible, noncoinbustible and a non conductor of heat and electricity, and on these properties its increasing uso depends. Ifr- is span into yarn, from which cloth is woven for drop enrtains in theaters, clothing for firemen, acid workers, etc. It is made into lamp wicks and gloves for stokers and ropes for fire escapes. It is felted into mill board to be used as an insulator in dy namos and as a fireproof lining for floors. It is used to insulate electri.c wires and as a covering to prevent loss of heat from steam pipes. Mixed with rubber it is used to puck steam joints. ?Pittsburg Dispatch. BATTLE WITH SHARKS. A De*i>crnle I'nronnlcr In Wlilcli Two 3ltin EatcrN Were Slain. Probably the most desperate fight which lias ever been witnessed between a conple of sharks and a human being took place at Havana some time ago. Several fruit peddlers had boarded a> large mailboat, and among them was a swarthy, barelegged young chap noted among his comrades as a clever swim mer. The purser of the vessel was stand ing by the gangway, holding his child in bis arms, watching a conple of sharks that were hanging about tho ship. Ac cidentally the child fell out of its fa ther's grasp into the water. Tho father immediately jumped overboard and seized his child, and in a moment the sharks were making for the pair. Seeing the predicament, the bare leg ged young buccaneer dropped his fruit basket and went over tho rail liko a flash. As tho first shark turned on its back ?the invariable prelude to biting its victim?the young fruit seller rose to tho surface, and, with a long, keen edged knife, fairly disemboweled it. The other was not nearly so easily disposed of. The shark seemed to real ize that in the fruit seller lie had a dangerous foe and apparently sparred for an opening. Several men on board the vessel blazed away at the monster with revolvers, but the young fellow begged the men to desist, being un nerved by the firing. Fish and man dived alternately, and when the fish did make for its foe the plucky boy dived and plunged the knife in its side. The water was crimson with blood when tho three were hauled safe and sound to the deck of tho vessel, and a handsome sum of money wus collected for the victor. Wliy Von Yawn. Have you ever observed at a theater or concert that the people who are most deeply interested aprear between tbo acts to be quite weary of the whole thing, yawning half a dozen times in succession ? Tho reason of this is a physiological one. When your attention is much absorbed in anything exciting or tonching, yon breathe in a very shal low manner and take into yonr lungs only half enough air. Consequently, when your attention is relaxed, yoa have to make up the deficiency. This yon do by yawning, which, after all, is only breathing a very deep breath. If you watch a man at a play and observe that be is greatly moved by some incident, you may feel sure #hat when tho scene ends he will sigh and a moment or two later yawn repeatedly. Of course the yawning, so far from be ing a sign of weariness, is a proof of the liveliest appreciation. Very often you will observe the same phenomenon in a girl reading a novel. And by her yawns yon can tell when the end of some absorbing incident ia reached.?Cincinnati Enquirer. All Aliout It.

It plays ) a perfect game inside its limitations. But once outside the routine moves, the Automaton is a failure. Much of medical practice as limited in its way as the moves of the Automaton at chess. No medical man can move with success outside his experience and train ing. For that reason the local doctor, often gives up as hopeless a case which is quite curable when greater skill and experience are brought to bear. It is the so-called " incurable" and "hopeless" cases, which come in such numbers to Dr. R. V. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y.f for treatment. Men and women with weak lungs, obstinate coughs, ema ciated bodies and fevered cheeks have found in Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery the true elixir of life. "The blood is the life " and the " Discovery " by increasing the activity of the blood making glands^and restoring to healthy action the digestive and nutritive organs, places the entire system in a condition to throw off disease. There is no alcohol, opium, or other narcotic, in " Golden Medical Discovery." Mr. Ch&s. Hunwick. of Lenox. Macomb Co., Mich., writes : " I have never felt better in my life than I do now. I have taken I>r. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery right along. I think I am doing finely. I do not cough now and I can sleep like a school boy. I think I will have to change my mind about ' Patent Medicines,* as I never haa much faith in them; but yon must know that I ha\-e been treated in two hospitals and by three doctors besides, and received no benefit; so I think your medicine is the only medicine for me."

She writes: " I have used Mother's Friend before two confinements. The last time I had twins, and was in labor only a few min utes. Suffered very little." The reason why Mother's Friend does expectant mothers so much good is because it is an external liniment, to ? applied upon the outside, where much of the strain comes. It helps be cause the pores of the skin readily absorb it, and it comes into direct contact with and is absorbed by the parts involved. Morning sickness is quickly banished, and nervousness is kept completely away. I The sense of dread and foreboding is not experienced, even during labor itself. Confinement is short and almost without pain. Recovery is quick and sure. Best of all. Mother's Friend benefits the unborn just as much as the expectant mother, and when the little one comes It will be strong, lusty and healthy. Druggists sell Mother's Friend for $1 ? bottle.
