?.4. Merlin, in Boston Pilot.
"Yes, he's just the man for Miss
Kate," said Mrs. Pierrot, who was not
a Frenc hwoman, notwithstanding her
name, but only a Frenchman's wife.
From long association, and from
listening to that gentleman's conversation,
she had imbibed French principles
to a sullicient extent to make her
quite approve of the iuariage de convt
nance, and Mr. Pierrot, as his American
neighbors called him, quite agreed
with his wife's remark.
In fait, the lirst suggestion that the
man in question, who was Mr. Hugh
Sherbourne, should marry " Miss Kate,"
had come from M. Pierrot; and had,
after some familiarizing herself with
the idea, come to be a fixed fact in the
mind of Mrs. Pierrot.
"Miss Kate" was a lady of rather
xmcertain age, whom those interested
in her thought had remained "Miss
Kate"' ouite Ions enough.
She lived in a pretty little cottage
not far from the Pierrots, and was
indeed their landlady; and Mr. Slierbourne
was their rich and rather eccentric
lodger, who had met Miss Kate
once or twice in Mrs. Pierrot's parlor,
and had become curiously interested in
her because of a real or fancied resemblance
which she bore to a former
friend of his?which former friend, as
the Pierrots had taken pains to discover,
was an.object of an unhappy attachment.
As for Miss Kate on first meeting
Mr. Sherbourne, and being introduced
to him, she had turned violently
reil, then equally pale, aud had alto? ?
gether shown such emotion and embarrassment
that the Pierrots never
had any doubt but that she had met
her fate and had surrendered at discretion.
From that hour the two matchmakers
determined that Mr.Sherbourne
should marry Miss Kate; and at once
entered into various little conspiracies
for forwarding their design.
But the object was gained. Miss
Kate had got into the habit of dropping
into her neighbor's house quite like one
r of the family, and being there she was
frequently begged to remain to tea,
and then, as the evenings was short, it
was too dark for a lady to go home
|T~ * " - alone, even so short a distance as that
between Mrs. Pierrot's house and Miss
Naturally then, Mr. Sherbourne being
of a gallant style, notwithstanding
I** his disappointment in love, always
accompaniedherjand thus a friendship
?p which was an excellent good substitute
for a more romantic passion, according
to the Pierrots, gradually sprang up
fy between these two amiable people.
From walking home with Miss Kate,
h Mr. Sherbourne soon came to calling on
her of his own accord, and everything
went on in a manner to all appearauces
quite satisfactory to the Pierrots. And
to that remark of Mrs. Pierrot's, with
H which this brief chronicle begins, Mr.
Pierrot responded in a tone of intense
CUli Y XC 1/lVll.
"Of course, as I have always said,
cheri, he is the very man for Miss
R?^\ Kate; but tell me, mon ami, has he
asked lier yet; has she told you anything
"She tells me anything?eveiything,
Kpj I think," said Mrs. Pierrot, musingly,
"but she has never said explicitly, in
BRSp^.. so many words, that she is going to
marry him, or even that he has plainly
asked her to do so, yet I have got the
? impression, somehow, that they are enSllliPl
Hum-m!" said Mr. Pierrot reflectively.
Jn his country, he could not
help thinking, young ladies, especially
elderly young ladies, were not so
fc mysterious; and if they had an engagement
to announce, were apt to be rather
in a hurry to publish the fact, instead
E* of keeping it a dead secret.
Mrs. Pierrot continued:
ps_ "The fact is, L suppose, h uepenua
somewhat on that aunt of Miss Kate's,
of whom we hear now and then. My
? impression is that the aunt's consent
will be necessary before Miss Kate will
even listen to a proposal, far less
? promise to marry any one. I know
Katie sets great store by her aunt?it
is always what will auntie say?and
will auntie like it?or would auntie
be willing I should do so and so? "
" Well, well! I wish this mysterious
auntie would?what you call it??put
' in an appearance," laughed Mr. Pierrot
" anyhow, I hopeshe won't be the means
of keeping Miss Kate from making s
good match?probably her last chance
SsT A few days later Miss Kate cam<
over quite early in the day?an un

made in the evening, and ;is soon as
Mrs. Pierrot saw her she felt that i

" What is it, dear ? " she asked wit!

casions. " Something has happened, J
i am sure."
"Yes, dear Mrs. Pierrot," answered
Miss Kate all in a flutter, "my aunl

" People are usually surprised at first;

though she once thought of doing
so. for there was a terrible misunderstanding
between them, but that is
hannilv made right now."
' And lie is still living?she's not a
widow; the husband, I mean?" Mrs.
Pierrot gasped out in great confusion,
but Miss Kate understood her.
"She is certainly not a widow," she
"Ifow interesting; tell me all about
it. There's no need for us to hurry
so,'* and Mrs. Pierrot's pace slackened
still more; and by the time they had
reached Miss Kate's house the matchmaking
lady had learned much regarding
the youthful aunt, but not sufficient
to prepare her for the scene that met
her gaze on entering the co/.v little
parlor where sat IlughSherbourne and
Miss Kate's aunt.
A beautiful girl, or such she seemed,
with hair of gold and eyes like purple
violets, sat beside Mr. Sherbourne, and
was indeed half embraced by his strong
protecting arm, while his hand held
both her two little snow-white hands
within one strong clasp. The beautiful
girl colored a little more deeply,
but made no effort to draw away from
her companion's embrace, while he
laughed slightly, as he said by way of
" Dear Mrs. Pierrott, this is my wife!"
and in the same breath Miss Kate said,
"And my Aunt Nell, dear Mrs. Pierrot."
Later that day, when Mrs. Pierrot
described the scene to her husband, his
look of consternation afforded her
some satisfaction; and when he said,
"Nevertheless, mon amie, 1 still think
he was just the man for Miss Kate,"
his cara sposa responded:
"And so do I, my dear Pierrot!"

Insects Visiting: Flowers.
Mr. A.W.Bennett and Mr. R. M.
Christy have been reporting to the
Linna-an society of London the result
of their observations on the visits of
insects to flowers. As respects preference
for particular colors, Mr. Bennett
has noticed among the Lepidoptera
that seventy visits were made to red
or pink flowers, five to blue, fifteen to
yellow and five to white; the Diptera
paid nine visits to red or pink, eight
to yellow and twenty to white; Hyinenoptera
alighted 303 times on the red or
pink flowers, 126 on blue, eleven on
yellow and seventeen on white (lowers.
Mr. Christy records in detail the movements
of seventy-six insects, chiefly
bees, when engaged in visiting 2,400
flowers. He tabulates the same,
notably the bees, decidedly and with
intent confine their successive visits to
the same species of flower. According
to him, also, butterflies generally
wander aimlessly in their flight; yet
some species, including the Fritillaries,
are fairly methodical in their habit.
He believes that it is not by color alone
that insects are guided from one flower
to another of the same species, and be
suggests that the sense of smell may
be brought into play. Bees, he avers,

Shooliu;* Fish in Fiji.
Xear my house there is a rocky
promontory jutting out some way into
the sea, with a coral reef round its
base; at high water there is some three
fe.-t over this reef, and lishof all kinds
come on it fevding. From the summit
of this promontory?which is aboat
seventy feet liigli? there is a eapiuu
view of the reef, and as the clear water
hides it no more than thougn it were
covered by a >heet of plate glass, the
lisli and their movements are plainly
visible. From this elevated spot,
armed with a Martini-Ilenrv rille, it
does not require a very good shot to
put a bullet over a lisli in the- water
below. It is wonderful what destruction
the concussion of the bullet with
the water causes among a shoal of
small fish; I have killed ninety-eight
with one shot. The bullet only actually
touched one or two; the rrst were
completely stunned, and several had
fieir eyes forced out. These ninetyeight
lisli weighed twenty pounds.
Mullet, that come past in great numbers,
and keep on the surface, afford
most excellent snots, una aru my

other large fish, besides turtle,
I have killed, but unless
they are near the surface, so that
they get tliefull force of the bullet, it
is useless firing at them. I am for
tunate in having an excellent retriever,
who retrieves the dead lisli very well,

in lishingyuing sharks. Stinging rays

Hon. George Wendell,
Sinclair Place, Boston.
An autumnal afternoon in the year 188found
the taut flagship Nomad rounding
the treacherous and dangerous extremity of
South America. And this day certainly intended
to place itself on record with those of
its predecessors marked stormy, its nastiness
in wind and weather giving all hands
on board the flagship their fill in hard work
and discomforts. The record of the Nomad
on this cruise, which she was now completing
on her homeward bound passage to Boston,
had been most disagreeable, when considered
in the light of heavy weather work.
From Suez to Aden, then on to Bombay,
Point do Galle, Singapore, Hong Kong,
Shanghai, Nagasaki and Yokohama, the
balance sheet stood largely in favor of old
Neptun-.-'s rough characteristics, but with
remarkable evenness the health and original
rosier of the ship's company stood this day
as it did nearly three years ago?with one
exception. Throughout the diverse and
varied exposures incidental to cruising over
the Asiatic station, where cholera, fevers,
Tnnlflrio ntwl /Vtlflci f\f fll 1
11VC1 CUIilJUtliXALO, 1UU1UUU, MMM ?...
degrees reign in fall force, none of the crew
had suffered more than temporary inconvenience,
and thns it aeemed very hard that
now, in the closing days of the cruise, there
stood nine chances for, to one against, a victory
being at last scored for tho destroying
angel Death. When the Nomad reached
Shanghai in the early portion of her cruise
her admiral was the healthiest man aboard.
A grand specimen of manhood was he. Over
six feet in height, weighing two hundred
pounds, broad in chest and strong in limb,
he rightly claimed for himself a full share of
Nature's blessings. While returning late one
night from a diplomatic reception at the
Consulate at Shanghai, through overheating
and insufficient protection from the dangerous
effects of the peculiar damp and
searching night air. he caught cold. "Only
a cold," remarked the admiral to the doctors
of his ship, "and easy to cure." So thought
the medical officers, but with a quiet though
insidious progression, this cold clung to tne
admiral in spite of their best efforts to eradicate
it, and when the timo came for leaving
Yokohama, homeward bound, the admiral realized
that his lungs and throat were decidedly
out of order. The doctors advised returning
home by mail steamer to San Francisco,
bo that greater means for curing this
persistent cough might be found in the
Naval Hospital there; but the admiral preferred
to stick to his ship, still imagining
that his trouble would eventually bo overcome
by the doctors' treatment.
No one who looked at the admiral even in
those days imagined that he would fall a
victim to lung trouble. But it was the old
story again typified in this case. Only a
cold at first; and in spite of orthodox treatment
the peculiar climatic effects of China
nursed it, and hastened the sure result of
such a deep-seatea trouDie. lime pnsfeu mier
leaving Yokohama- for Boston, bringing
varying symptoms in the admiral's case, and
the doctors imagined that they held the disease
in check at least. But with the formation
of tubercles, night-sweats and the now
rapid consumption of lung tissues, which
had set in with alarming symptoms, the patient
realized that his cold had laid the seeds
of that fell agent of Death, ronsumplioti.
The hacking couj^h of the admiral had in
itself been sufficient food for serious consideration,
and now, as in the warm autumn
days the flagship gallantly rode over the
bluo waters of the Pacific, bound for Cape
Horn, the doctors hoped much for success.
But tliis boisterous afternoon found thegood
ship struggling with gigantio seas setoff
from the Cape by a fierce northerly wind.
Leaden were the heavens and sad the
hearts of all aboard, for that morning the
usual bulletin of the medical officers had set
forth this intelligence: "The admiral is in
same condition as reported last night. A
burning fever has been slightly reduced,
while other symptoms are as heretofore announced."
All understood these words
without questioning. The beloved admiral
nnil during the pa*t two weeks sunk very low.
The symptoms of blood-poisoning, a torpid
liver, intense pains throughout the body,
eyesight and mental faculties affected, appetite
gone, through inaction of that great regulator?the
liver. Theao wero the means
which h.iil Tfidupfid thn ndmirn.1 from the
I pinncle of health to the vulley and shadow of
death. Consumption held full sway* now,
and the well-known skill of naval doctors
was in this instance at least completely
The admiral had issued orders for the flagship
to touch at Montevideo for coal, and it
was tho intention of the doctors to land the
admiral there for treatment. But one man
in the ship was wrapped in the gloom of despair,
as standing by tho weather rigging on
the poop deck he gazed absently over the
seething waste of waters. This was the admiral's
son, a lieutenant, and attached to
his father's staff. He feared that the wear
aud tear of ship life would sap his father's
ftrength beyond endurance, and before the
ship could reach Montevideo. Among a
group of sailors gathered around one of the
great guns on tho spar deck stood the captain
of the foretop, Brown, a slight but healthylooking
man. His companions were listening
to a recital of his sufferings from consumption,
which had developed while he was
attached to tho sloop-of-war lianyer, lying
in tho harbor of Yokohama a year ago, this
"yarn" having been started by n discussion
about the admiral's condition. Tho men had
just returned from some work around the
deck, an order for which 1 a l interrupted
Brown's story a few moments previously.
" A year ago this day I was hove to m tne
*pill man's' sick bay in the Hanger, then off
Yokohama, an' I tell you, parus, 'twas no
use pi pin' my number, 'cause I was nigh on
passin' in my enlistment papers for a long
cruise aloft," continued Brown. "Consumption
had me llat aback, and the doctor
says it was no use to stow away his lush in
my hold seoin' that my bellows was condemned
by a higher power than he could
"How did you pucker out of it?" asked a
"Wa'all," replied Brown, "my Chinee
washman came to mo one morniu' an' he
fays to mo, "mo hab got allee same Melican
man mcdikin, do you heap good!' I says,
'bring it off, Chang; I buy all tho same.'
'1 h it afternoon Chang hove up with fourteen
bottles of a lush, enough to kill or cure the
whole ship's crew, an' that looked fresh in
their nice wrappers. Says Chang. 'China
man doctor hab got plentee more, lie make
heap good well with my sick, this number
rm? tnKrliL-f.n n1l,'f> anmn tlimnrrh Ynknhfimn.'
Wa'all, I took the bottles an' told the doctor
I was goin' to try nne !is by the sailin' orders
on the bottle, and the doctor he laughed
and said 'twas no good, but I done as the
regulations says from the tirst, an' here I
am, ag'in tho doctor's ideas, to be sure!"
With this triumphant assertion Brown
looked about the circle. Then, lowering his
voice, said: "Boys, I've four of those
precious bottles left?ain't give 'em all
away yet after I was cured?an' if you a'l
think that it would not be too free with tho
'old man,' suppose 1 go to his sou there on
the poop deck an' say what I have to you,
an' askiti' his pardon, say wo want the admiral
to try the stutf in my bottles, scein'
that they cured my consumption."
This idea met with approval from all
sides. Therefore Brown walked off for an
interview with the admiral's son, with 110
little anxiety in his good heart as to the remit
of his mission. Approaching the lieutenant,
Brown saluted, and asked for permission
to state his reasons for doing so.
This was readily granted, and Brown spoke
"Seeing that I was once cured of consumption,
lieutenant, I make bold to ask
if I can tell you how, an' why I've tho roasons
for wishing you to use on your father
wn<. TV.V inn."
in n few moments the lieutenant had
Brown's story out, anil n:nch to the latter's
gratification, granted a ri ady permission to
liiin. It did not take Brown long to run to
his ditty box, (jot the bottles of medicine,
and return to the lio:itcirint with them.
" I'm afrared that tho doctors will kick
ag'iu tho use of this blessed stutf, an'
what w ill you do, sir," said Brown, as ho
placed the medicine in tl e cabin orderly's
linn Is to be taken into the admiral's room.
' I will attend to that, Brown, and rest assured
that your remedy will have a fair trial
in spile of any opposition. It will not harm
my father, jmlyinjf from your statement and
I ho opinion of the Medical oflicers of tho
' 'litiink you, sir, nn' Goil help the admiral
to weather his trouble, is the prayer of all
tho ship," 8-tiil Brown, as tho lieutenant
turned to enter tho cabin.
There was no cessation in tho storm that
evening. The gale howled through tho rigging
in wild, discordant tones; the great ship
labored through tho white-capped mountains
of water threatened to engulph her
with each burst of tlioir storm-whipped
crests. Within the admiral's cabin the Argand
lights, the comfortable furniture, and
tho numerous evidences of tho admiral's
wanderings over laud and water, as displayed
in choice bric-a-brac and trimmings, gave
to tho room a warm, snug appearance, most '
pleasing this wild night to those within. In i
ins stateroom lay tho admiral, made com- i
fortablo by all that loving hands and willing j
hearts could suggest. By his side sat his i
son, who in quiet voice was recounting to |
his father the interview with Brown, and tho |
opposition met with from the doctors when
tho idea of giving this new medicine was !
" You \Voro sleeping at the time, father, I
and therefore missed a laughable scone, j
| made so. in spite of your condition, by the !
intense dislike displayed by the doctors for |
this 'now-fang'e.l .-tutf,' this 'patent liquid,'
which they declared with their consent
should never be given to you. Well, I cut
tho matter short by saying that I would take
ill the responsibility, and With your permiseipn
would administer it. That I obtained

I am satisfied* dear father, that it
will do yon good, a premonition filling my
heart that at last we have found the means
of arresting the burning fever and hacking
cough which have been troubling you so
The admiral's replj; was cut short by a
severe spell of coughing, during which he
spat blood, and when finished sank back exhausted.
But the grateful look which he bestowed
on his son was an additional assurance
of belief in that which the admiral had
at first sight dubbed aa a possible but doubtful
means of doing him any good. But laying
aside his dislike for any but old-established
remedies, the admiral acquiesced in
his son's request, and now, after this last
spell, admitted that the effect of the dose
hnd softened the dreaded severity of the

Three weeks later found the Nomad making
the harbor of Montevideo. After severe
and prolonged weather she had rounded the
Cape and was now standing in the harbor
for the purpose of recoaling and watering.
To one given to tho study of human line iments
the faces of those aboard the flagship
this bright morning would have afforded infinite
scope for such pursuit. But the source
of each man's happiness flowed from the
same fountain of grateful joy. The beloved
admiral was the cause of this. And why?
If you could have seen the admiral this
bright morning, dear reader, your answer
would have been easily found in his face. A
changed man was he. Victory wns perched
on his guidons! the dread enemy was s'owly
retreating! The fi^ht was a severe or.?, but
with no cessation in vigilant action and careful
application of the contents of four
bottles the admiral had turned the flank of
consumption, and was slowly but surely
driving him off the field with a power which
astounded the doctors and filled all hearts
with joy and thankfulness.
What was this then that had won the victory
for the seaman Brown, and was now
leading the admiral's shattered forces to the
samo grand result? When asked this question
by one of his officers on duty, in Montevideo,
the admiral, slowly lifting his hand,
replied, "I would that in letters of gold, and
so placed that all the world could read them,
the name of this great remedy coulcl be
shown, coupled with the genius who discovered
it?'The Golden Medical Discovert!
Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y.,' the man who
has given to his fellow men the greatest lelicf
from all ills that mortal flesh is heir to!"
" This is the name of the contents of that
bottle on my table, and God bless the man
who lias found the secret of filling it with a
medicine at once purifying and strengthening,
wholosome and thorough in its results,
and claiming, in my humble opinion* nothing
for itself that it cannot reasonably inform.
Nature's ally against th? abuse of
Well might the admiral sing the praises of
that which had so unexpectedly rescued him
from a fatal illness. When the ship anchored
the first commission for the admiral's son to
execute was a large purchase of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery, which, as the admiral
sadly admitted, he had seen in every
port the world around and had only admired
as an evidence of the energy and enterprise
of an American who could thus place his
Mo/UpmI nismvfirv in every nook
and corner of the globe. But now lie was
one more to testify to the wonderful power
of this medicine, and certainly -^'d so in
Montevideo, by praising it up to all the high
officials who visited him.
A week later and the Nomad sailed for
Boston direct. What the condition of the
admiral was when she arrived there is shown
in his letter above. Let it be recorded to the
credit of the doctors on the flagship that
they were completely cured of all dislike for
the Golden Medical Discovery, nsed it faithfully
on the voyage to Boston, and landed,
through its wonderful power, the admiral
completely restored; and more than one poor
fellow win started out in the sick bay of the
' Nomad. What stanch friends the Golden
Medical Discovery made in that ship!
The above, reader, is an outline of the
story, spun by the admiral to his friend when
they met at the dinner. We will not touch
on othe - portions of his interesting recital
of his cruise in general, oar aim being to record
his testimony for the greatest wond*r
in medical science that this nineteenth century
of surprising developments has produced.
From the wonderful power of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery over that terribly
fatal disease, consumption, which is scrofula
of the lungs, when first offering this now
world-famed remedy to the public, Dr.
Piorce thought favorably of calling it his
"consumption care," but abandoned that
name as too restrictive for a medicine that
from its wonderful combination of germ-destroying,
as well as tonic, or strengthening,
alterative or blood-cleansing, anti-bilious,
diuretic, pectoral and nutritive properties,
. is unequaled, not only as a remedy for consumption
of the lungs, bat for all chronic
diseases of the liver, blood, kidneys and
lungs. Golden Medical Discovery cures all
linraor.', from the worst scrofula to a common
blotch, pimple or eruption. Erysipelas,
salt-rhcum, fever-sores, scaly or rough
skin, in short, all diseases caused by disease
germs in the blood, are conquered by this
powerful, purifying and invigorating medicine.
Great e:iting ulcers rapidly heal under
its benign influences. Especially has it
manifested its potency in curing tetter, rose
rash, boils, carbunclcs, sore eyes, scrofulous
sores and swellings, white swellings, goitre
or thick neck, and enlarged glands.
"The blood is the life." Thoroughly
cleanse this fountain of health by using
Golden Midical Discovery, and good digestion,
a fair skin, buoyant spirits, vital
strength and doundnesa of constitution arc
For weak lungs, spitting of blood, short
breath, consumptive night-sweats and kindred
aftections, it is a sovereign remedy. In
the cure of bronchitis, severe cougha and
consumption, it has astonished Ihe medical
faculty, and eminent physicians pronounce
it the greatest medical discovsry of the age.
The nutritive properties possessed by cod
liver oil are trifling when compared with
those of the Golden Medical Discovery. It
rapidly builds up the system and increase
the flesh and weight of those reduced belo3
the usual standard of health by wasting diseases.

The reader will pardon the foregoing digression,
prompted by our admiration for a
remedy that performs such marvelous cures,
and permit ud to say that when the admiral
returned to his home in New York the only
cloud cast upon the happinessof the reunion
with his family vaa caused by the continued
illness of his eldest son, a young man of
t.venty-four, whose disease, when the admirni
aoiinri fmm Mnntflvedio. had been re
ported as succumbing to tho treatment or"
the family doctor. But his father thought it
otherwise; the unfortunate young man was
suffering severely from chronic di?ea?o of
the kidneys and bladder. Before leaving
Boston the admiral had purchased a copy of
Dr. Pierce's book, ''The People's Common
Sense Medical Adviser." He read this valuable
book thoroughly, and upon hi3 arrival
home had made up his mind as to the future
treatment for his son. The latter was sent
to the famous Invalids' Hotel, at Buffalo, N.
Y., conducted by Dr. R. V. Pierce, and his
comretent staff of specialists, where, under
skillful treatment, tho sufferer soon found
relief and a permanent cure.
Alleged Dangers in Canned Food.
For a number of years past it has
not been an uncommon thing to read
in the daily papers accounts more or
less circumstantial of cases of poisoning,
some fatal, some serious and some
comparatively trilling, which were
called the results of eating canned
food. The impression created by the
first of these stories was weak. The
practice of using articles of diet preserved
in tin cans had become almost
universal before any such cases were
on/l al mr?cf. pvprvhndv in
civilized communities had eaten of
such food without experiencing ill
effects it was generally doubted that
the poisoning had been correctly traced
to its source. The practice of preserving
in tin, therefore, went on, and
increased year by year.
"With the increase in the use of the
preserved food, however, there came
also an increase in the number of cases
of poisoning attributed, whether rightly
or wrongly, to that use, and from
time to time one person after another
became convinced that there was danger
in the tin cans. Xot a few physicians
(perhaps the most conservative
class of the community in some respects)
have warned their patients to

having become convinced that it was

cases of "lead poisoning."
Accurate statistics of the trade are
not obtainable, but the canning of salmon,
oysters, fruits, vegetables, meats,
poultry and game employs many million
dollars of capital and gives support
to many thousands of persons,
and the products are reckoned by the
millions of cases.?iVeir York Herald.

Where the Word Dude Came From
The just now popular word dude H
meaning an empty-headed, lanquid- H
mannered young swell who bangs his H
hair, proves to be no foreign importa- H
tion, but, like many another expressive H
term, to be of good New England par- flj
entage. The word (pronounced in
two syllables) has been used in the
little town of .Salem, X. II., for twenty
years past, and, it is claimed, was J WM
coined there. It is common there to '
speak of a dapper young man as a"dude
of a fellow." of a small animal as "a H
little dude," of a sweetheart as " my H
dude," and of an a?sthetic youth of the n
Wilde type as a dude. But how the word ffl
attained so sudden a widespread txo H
toriety puzzles Salem. Its revival at
New York is credited to a disgusted H
Englishman, who remarked, after H
visiting a rich club, that the young
men were all "dudes."?Springfield "

as possible, being uudcr the treatment of an excel- B

since. More recently I >va? troubled with impurity fl

after taking it a short time was completely cured of B

beneficial to mo in attacks of sick headache, which it fl
always alleviates, and I notice the Improvement as fl
