ASBESTUS.
gome of <lic I?eci:llnrltle? of" ThU
Mysterious Sn1>?tnncc.
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.

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.
"There's one thing about the north
pole," asserted the returned explorer
emphatically.
The crowd leaned eagerly forward to

The'Automaton chess player is a won
derful thing. 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."

Out in Kansas
lives a happy wife. 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.
