Children at the Table.
Children should always meet with the father, mother and older members of the family at the table and never made to wait, even if company is pres ent. The child that has been taught, "not to do this or that when a visitor is at the tab1?," cannot be depended upon to do the right thing at the right time, bnt the ohild that has learned table manners by imitation, will not mortify ita parents by any misbeha vior. It is impossible lor a child that is in the habit of eating carelessly sud denly to reform and don company manners. A child should be made comfortable at the table;'the chair should be of the proper height, the knife, fork and spoon of suitable size. Children - should not lead the con versation ; they should be taught never to interrapt their elders, but they should be allowed to assist in the con versation which will teach them to ex press their thoughts intelligently, and parents.should see that they use the best language. The pleasures of a meal are certainly added to by the presence of the little ones; and yet we have been present when the meal time was made very disagreeable, because the children must be scolded and even whipped. If we want our children at all times to appear well bred, we must discourage the idea that there are company man ners and every day manners. There is a great difference between the genuine good manners and society "good form." Good manners don't change. Children oan be early taught to eat quietly ; to avoid noises in swallowing and chewing: to use the fork and not the knife, that with the fingers can be taken bread, fruits and cake; the proper use of the napkin, and that they are not to display any marked likes or dislikes. Older members ot tho family should*be as polite to each other and to the children as to any guest, then you will not be haunted bo the fears that in some unguarded moment the children will bring them selves and you to disgrace; for table manners "are sure indications of so cial; mental and moral culture."

The kola nut, which found its ori gin in Central Africa, and whioh has become famous throughout the world as an invaluable addition to medical science, is to be introduced on the east coast. TM kola tree grows to a heigth of about forty feet, and one tree bas been known to produce a crop of from 500 to 800 pounds. Each pod generally contains four seeds, fifty of which will make one quart, or one and one quar ter pounds, which is sold at $1.00 per pound and upwards. The first fruiting occurs five years from planting, but the maximum yield is not reached until the ninth or tenth year. The tree flourishes in moist, hot lands, at or a little above sea level. The medical properties of kola ?re many and of the greatest Taino to medical science. The great value of kola is due to the presence of certain alkaloids, theo bromine and caffeine, together with the new and powerful principle known as kolanin. The stimulating and sustaining pow ers of coffee andcocoa are wellkuown, and kola contains cot only a large per centage of their characteristic alka loids, but also kolanin, whose physi ological effects are more powerful and lasting than either caffeine or theo bromine, while at the-samo time it is free from the objections urged against cocaine. In view of these deductions, therefore, kola must be accepted as a valuable addition to our materia m ed ica. Because of its sustaining powers kola is used by the natives when long c?ntinued exertion is demanded and little food obtainable; hence we are led to believe that this peculiar prop erty is similar to that of cocoa. That it lessens tissue waste is shown by the diminished excretion of urea. The effect of kola upon the circulat ing system is that of a tonic stimulant, the pulse being increased in strength and frequency. The kola tree resembles somewhat the chestnut. Despite the fact that it prefers the moist c.imate of the coast, it has been found 500 miles in the in terior. As Florida possesses the only soil in the United States that is suitable for this product, there seems to be great wealth in store for the state by its in troduction among the colonies on the southeast coast.-Exchange. The Tadpole In Science. At the close of the last century Gal vani astonished the world with the ex periments he performed on frogs. There is no doubt but what his work, so far as development of engineering was concerne I, almost retarded the progress, at least for a very short time; but he has'opened a field which to future generations may be of as much, possibly of more importance than all the practical applications of electricity today. We refer to the physiological effects of the electrio currents. Now, as we approach the end of an other century, another experiment on tadpoles has been made, which in our minds' eye may have tremendous con sequence. Dr. Waller has ohserved that tadpoles face the positive pole when an electrio current is sent through the trough in which they live. This is certainly a remarkable fact, and we hope sincerely that this mat ter may not be taken up as a matter of ridicule, or of play, for there may be hidden in this simple .experimental fact a vast deal of knowledge; not that we want to prophesy, but on the face of it it does not seem impossible that this simple fact should be the commencement of a knowledge of 1 elgflfor?phyUfofogyy^frtcli Sn a hun ared years from now might ??rp?sriec tion be second to none of our descrip"-^ tive soiences.-Max. Osterbergin Elec trio Power. Following Instructions. The late Professor Huxley, some years ago, attended a meeting cf the British Association for the Advance ment of Science, at Belfast, Ireland. All the servants in the town assembled regularly at a certain hall. Professor Huxley arose late one morning and feared he should be late at the meet ing. Coming out of his lodgings ho hailed one of the Irish vehicles known as an outside car, and mounted it. "Now, drive fast," he said to the driver, "fox I am in a great hurry." Off went the driver at a mad pace, which almost threw the professor off his seat, and began charging along the road in a somewhat indefinite way. Presently it occurred to Huxley to say, as he held on for his life: "My good man, do you know where I want to go?" "No, yer Anner," answered the driver, coolly; "you didn't tell me where to go, but annaway, I'm drivin* fast !" New Colors. Nadjal is a rich plum color. Amaryllis is a reddish heliotrope.

FATHER'S SECRET, BEAUTIFUL girl sat at the draw ing-room window which overlooked the sea and the Cleveland Hills, but she saw neither sea nor hill;?. Emily Vane and her father, with the servants, had been DOW some five weeks at SaUburn, in a large house which Mr. Vane had rented for the 6ummer. Henry Vane, Esq., owned a good-sized mansion in Bel gravia, where he had lived for the past eight years during the London season ; and an estate near Notting ham, amid picturesque scenery, where he generally resided when not in Lon don. Each summer, however, he rented his house at Saltburn : for not only Emily, but himself, too, was charmed with the quiet, beautiful Yorkshire watering place. From all of which it will be at once surmised that Tenry Vane, Esq., was a man of wealth. -Lib money had been acquired abroad, and though of his family nothing or little was known by society, he was received by some excellent I houses ; for even a titled person does not care lightly to offend one whose income is ?10,000 a year. Emily Vane saw neither sea nor hills. Her thoughts were wholly oc cupied by two letters in front of her. Both had como that morning, and both were proposals for ho? hand. The first of them was from the Earl of Seacroft, who for some time had beon paying Miss Vano noticeable atten tions, and who, both as regarded per sonal qualities and position, was in deed no bad match for any English maiden. Ho was yet young and fairly wealthy, and for some months-in fact, since Emily liad "come out" had been a victim to her beauty and charms. She admitted to herselt that Lord Seacroft's proposal was not one to be lightly set aside. The other letter was from Mr. Hu bert Wells. Emily had met him about six months ago, at a country house, since which time he had been her de voted admirer. She frankly con fessed to herself that she liked him, that she liked his society, that she knew that he loved her. But Hubert Wells was not rich, and had no par ticular position. He had only about ?100 a year, whiih his father, long Kineo dead, had lol t him to live upon. Emily .Vane still sat, looking first at this proposal, then at that. She had for the past week or two expected both, and so unsettled and doubtful was she that she had given neither "???f or^any eliAi^-^iL^^ciiii^3^^ - Bonally. But now it had come-both" on one morning ! The ordeal had to be faced ; the decision to be made ! Her pride, her love for her father, her wish to raise the name of Vane, said "Seacroft;" yet there was a small voice underneath which whispered "Hubert." In her perplexity she picked up the letters, aud went to see her father in his study. Emily Vane's mother had died at her birth ; her lather was her closest confidant. As Emily entered, he rosed up and kissed her lovingly, then, smoothing her hair, said quietly : "Which of the two is it to be love?" The beautiful girl gazed at him with eyes half dimmed with tears, os she an swered, blushingly : "Which ever my papa likes! He always ohooses for the best." "Well, my dear, suppose I should say Lord Seacroft? I have always wished 6uoh a husband for you titled, yet noble in nature's best ways." "Yes, papa." "Yet Hike Mr. Wells." Emily's heart beat a shade quicker. "He caunotgive you what the Earl of Seacroft can, and what I have so often pictured you ; and yet-and yet-ho is his father's son !" The girl gazed, half in fear and as tonishment, for her father was as pale os death, and shook visibly. "What is it, papa?" she said. "Sit down, my love," replied Mr. Vane. "It has only come, as I ielt certain some day it would. God has brought it out in His time. I must tell you now. Don't be afraid, Emily. It is the secret of my life which I've hidden for thirty-five years; now you must share it. I feel I should not be doing right if I let you' choose to-day without telling you of it. When you have heard my story you must choose for yourself, and be assured your choice, whichever it is, will please me. As for what you will hear, it will re main your secret and mine; I shall keep it as before, and I must beg of you to do the same all your life, even from you husband." Emily sut in doubt and fear, sure j that the kind father who had so loved her would not tell anything to distress her, if he could help it; and yet anx ious as to what such an awful secret could be. The master of Oltoh sat in a chair with his face away from the light, watchiug intently that dear, ?weet face of his daughter, upon which the full sunlight shone. "Thirty-fivo years ago a convict ship was sailing from England for Botany Bay, uu'Jer the command of a bravo captain and crew. There were no fewer than forty convicts on board -dnspera'e fellows ol every descrip tion-thieves, highwaymen, mauslay ers, all kinds of vi'lains. Among them wac one whose case had excited much interest at home, since many people believed him innocent-m 'rally, at any rate-of a crime he was said to have committed. Among a gang of poachers one night he, their superior in rank, hal had the misfortune to shoot one ot the keepers who had watcied for them and attacked them. The shui hal killed the keeper, but there was SLID. doubt as to whose gun it bad oom. h.m, and, vi?;u tUv c ?u?t in que* I i f iion was arrestee! and charge!, tba keepers swore tbat be bad fired the shot. For himself, he know not whether this was so ; several of hw fel low poachers said he was innocent, and that the real culprit had escaped. His sentence, however, was that of penal servitude at Botany Bay for life -probably the doubt alone saved him from being hanged. "Naturally, his spirit was galled ; ho became morose, wild, severe in aspe;it as in temper, and bis reputation on thc convict ship was that of tho wot st criminal on board. He rebelled at Iis jailers, nt his food, at his confinement, and felt ready for any d^rk deed. The chance soon carno. The vessel was off the Cape of Good Hope, some miles away, when he first got knowledge of & projected mutiny, in which the cap tain, crew and jailers wero all to bo murdered; and the successful muti neering convicts were then to steer for some unknown point to Africa and land there. "It was a desperate scheme, and with tho mutioy he was thoroughly in unison, but not with murder. He was not yet ns black as that, and tried hard to dissuade his fierce companions from it, but in vam. As they persist ed in their plans he felt that all he enid do was to keep quiet till the time for action came ; but the captain and his wife had been really kind to him, and he determined that they should not die. Yet he would not be tray his companions like a coward. "On September 8 the attack was made. He stood near the captain's cabin to protect its unfiuspecting in mates. When the mutineers, having seized the watch on deck and killed them, came rushing down, ho ordered them back from that cabin ; they re fused to go, and a fight ensued. The captain became roused, the alarm was given, and, after a desperate resist ance, the rebels were overpowered and put in irons. The captain begged of the guards to set the convict who had saved his life at liberty, but they de clined, pretending that, in reality, bc was as bad ns tho rest. So he was closely guarded. "It was on touching at Perth that the captain's opportunity came. Hav ing secured the co-operation of his mates, he entertained the whole of the guards at dinner one evening, and made them hopelessly drunk. In the meantime, one of his party contrived to secure possession of the keys, and in a very few moments the conviot'a irons had been unloosened, and ho was free. The captain himself came and shook hands with bim ere he sent him off in the boat which was waiting for him. " 'I'know,' said he, 'that what I have done for you is risky, and may cost me something if my part is discovered ; but you saved my lite, ?0 I will take this risk to save you from tho crush ing penal servitude. All I have to say to you is, get away from the coast, after you have lauded, as soon as pos sible, change your name and appear ance as much as you can ; go into some honest business, and, though it is not likely, if ever I do hear of you again, let it be in euch away that will do you credit, and repay me for giving you freedom to-night.' "The tears stood in the convict's eyes as he thanked his benefactor, and grasped his hand. " 'Sir, I shall take your advice. My little bit of good was almost 'gone by the brutal treatment I have suffered for I don't think I killed that game keeper, but even if I did, it was pure ly accidental. You have proved to me that all the kindness and grati.tr-. " are not yet gone out of the worl?, and I hope*some day to be ablo to show you now I appreciate it.' "?Vithin a few minutes more the boat had landed him on the main land. He watched it return to thc ship, and then departed. "It was six years after this that, with money made in sheep farming, .Joseph Tuxnell, the- -former convict, turned up at Ballarat just as the first ru3h of the gold fever oocurred. It was Turnell who bought the great tract of land which was afterwards discovered to be almost wholly gold under the surface, and who sold it, after getting some thousands out of it, for a very large sum. But nobody in England or Australia, when Joseph Turnell's name was mentioned, ever thought for a moment that he was the escaped convict about whom such a stir had been made at home, both on his escape, and later, when a dying tramp confessed that it was his gun shot that memorable night whiph killed the keeper. "Joseph Turnoll was wealthy, and bad married a dear girl in Victoria, who had borne him a daughter ere she died. Need I go on, Emily ? You have guessed it all I He came to Eugland and took the name of Henry Vane, owing to having had some estates left him, as ho told his friends ; in reality, to throw any chance old acquaintance off the scent. There is no fear now of any discovery or disagreeable thing happeuing. I felt nervous the first year or two, but now the only two who know all this are you and I, for even tho good old captain is dead. So, you see, I was imprisoned unjustly after all, but it has turned ont a good thing for me in the end. And, now you have wealth and beauty. I wanted, for mv eva ambition, to see you a lady by title and position, and the Farl of Seacroft could have no finer countess, nor you a more desirable husband. " She sat pale and agitated, yet smil ing now, for was not her dear father free of that awful even if uninten tional crimo which made her feel so sick as he told her the story? "So you think I must choose Lord Seacrott?" she asked. "Nay," replied Mr. Vane; "I hav< scarcely done yet. Hear the rest and choose for yourself. As you know now, all I have I owe to that gooi captain-my freedom, my wealth, nv* fair fame. I promised-and GOP knows I have tried-never to forgei him and his wife? Emily, that cap tain's name was Hubert Wells, and this Mr. Hubert Wells is his son I ] found ont all easily by my agents. I have never repaid the father, never can, nor the mother, either, for what they did. My own, dearest darlinp can, if she chooses-and I half suspeci it will be agreeable-sacrifice with mt our ambitious hopes, and repay thc son for his father's sake !" He stopped and looked at her. Emily Vane's eyes wandered thought fully out in a loDg gaze over the sun lit sea; then she turned with a calm smile and whispered: "Yes, dearest papa, and she will." "God bless yon both," said he.

Found in Africa-Its Trunk is In combustible and It Actually Seems to Thrive on Biff Forest Fires. NOTHER historical "miracle" seems to have been put on a scientific basis. The "burn in? bush" of Moses, accepted unfalteringly by Biblical students, of all the wonders related in the Scrip tures, has been considered ?s among the most marvellous. The Scriptural account (to bo found in Exodus iii., 2-5) says: "And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him (Moses) in a flame of fire, out of the midst of a bush ; and ho looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bash was not consumed. "And Moses said, I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush is not burned. "And when tho Lord saw that ho turned aside to see, God called unto him out of tho midst of tho bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And ho said, Here am I. "And He said/Draw not nighhither ; put off thy shoes froui off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground." In a recent English Foreign Office report there is a description of a lately discovered stunted tree that goes by the name of the chaparro. If this be not the veritable "burning bush" tuat "burned with fire and was not con sumed" it is very close to it, for ex periments have revealed that it not only resists tire for a very long time, but that its trunk is practically in combustible. It seems aotuaily to thrive on great forest fires in which it alone remains unconsumed, for if a long period passes without a conflagra tion the chaparro gradually decays and dies. In a huge conflagration this strange tree seems to start into life, as an or dinary plant does when it is wet with rain after a long drought. Amid the swirling reds andyellows of the flames it takes on a new life, and after the fire has swept past it is seen with now shoDts of vivid green springing out of it. At such times the chaparros stand alone, sturdy and strong, amid the surrounding blackened trunks, tho only living things in a land reduced to sterility. It is not accurate to say that the en tire trco comes ont of a forest fire un scathed. While the body of the tree is incombustible, its smaller branches and twigs burn. They burn very slowly, while the rest of the woodland is going up in smoke. ' The London scientists who have looked into the matter believe that the trunk of the tree, anc] its branches in a smaller degree, exude under the influence of great heat a moisture that is sufficient, owing to its peculiar chemical properties, to protect the wood. Commenting on tho ohaparros, the English Foreign Office report says: "It is very remarkable that these fire begotten, plantations aro nowhere crowded to excess ; on the contrary, the trees are so regularly placed that their aspect vies with that of the most carefully formed gardens." While the word "tree" is'used in the report the term "bush" would be more accurate, for the chaparro is little more than that. It seldom grows to a height of more ttran^uight-fretr and in appearance it much more re sembles a bush than even a smallish tree. It grows mainly in South Africa, being most frequently met with in the wild regions far to the west of the Transvaal, in districts where few white men have beeu. The natives look upon it with superstitious awe, and imagine that a god dwells within its trunk. They avoid the groves of these trees after nightfall. The wood is lough and unyielding, and after a fire will dull the edge of the sharpest instru ment. A specimen of chaparro bark is on exhibition in tho museum of the Pharmaceutical Society, Bloomsbury square, London. A comparison of the description of this remarkable tree with that given of the "barning bush" shows that it was probably the thorny acacia of the Arabian peninsula, the stunt ot'Eajypt, and was akin to flip ?liitt' h tree end senna. Hence the mountan. on which it grows derive their name. Sinai ; and the traot is called the "Wilderness of Sin," or tho "Sench." The wood of the sh itt,", h tree furnished the material for the Ark of the Covenant and various parts of tho Tabernacle. It is hard, tough and durablo and susceptible of fine polish.-New York World. One ol Field's Last Letters. A Boston little girl who loved Eu gene Field wrote this letter three weeks previous to the Western poet's death, says the Herald of that city: Dear Mr. Field-I love you.

There is said to bo a den of wolves, coyotes and big grays in the neigh borhood of tho Oregon slaughter house, two miles out of the city of Cheyenne, Wyoming. A pack of regular wolfhounds is_ kept at the slaughter house, and so far these dogs have killed upward of a hundred wolves and coyotes.-San Francisco Chronicle, Names of Carriages. The fact that the first coach ever brought to this country-it being im ported by Colonel DeLancey Kan?, son-in-law of Commodore Vanderbilt, some twenty years ago-was named by its owner "the tally-ho" is not any more justification for twisting the meaning and enlarging upon the im portance of the word, so as to make it refer to coaches generally considered, than it would be to call all yachts "Alvas" because Vanderbilt chooses to call his boat by that name. The word "tally-ho" is used in apervertedsenso as applied to coaching. It is a hunting term, pure and simple. Take the common expression that you hear on every side. "Air. So and-so has just passed by in his drag." Now, a mau up in such things would expect to see a person go by with a swell four-in-hand tournout. Drag is the name applied to a coach when it ?3 used privately. As soon as a four in-hand coach is put into pnblic eer vice and a fare is charged for riding upon it, it ceases to be a drag and be comes a coach, just as a hansom when "driven publicly becomes a hansom cab. Another common mistake is the call ing of two horses a team instead of a pair. A pair of horses is never a team unless hitched tandem. A team is something more than a pair, such as a tandem, unicorn, four-in-hand, etc., and tc hear people talk about a pair of horses as a team is quite as bad as to hear a person Bay, "John, put that single set of harness on the bay." A single set of harness is an impos sibility, as it takes a double equipment for a set. Used in the sense of the word trap is another expression which you never hear except in the very Yankee States. It seems to be a generic name for all kinds of traps, and nothing is too low ly or too lofty to apply the term to. A name almost as general as a rig in its significance is "dog cart." It seems as if anything having two wheels should be given this name, ac cording to the notion here. Tbe only thing that should be given that name, however, is a two-wheel cart having a box under the seat, called a dog box, for the reception of dogs, guns, game and such things. You very seldom hear the arrange ment of one horse in front of two spoken of a3 a unicorn ; it is more usually called a "spike," yet this is the slang name for it. Properly speak ing, a "spike" is the name that should be applied tu such teams as you find working in iron or dray wagons, when the driver rides tho near horse and drives the lead horse with a jerk line. -Pittsburg Dispatch. The Music 1 hawed Ont. "Well," said he, "I am not a joker, hut upon the subject of this evening I muy be able to impart some informa tion concerning the Northwest. The firm of which I am a member owns a large wheat farm in Manitoba. It is a fine wheat section, but the climate is too variable to suit me. My farm is thirty miles north of Winnipeg, and by the time wheat ripens there is fre quently a CJ.I1 wave that freezes not only the wheat, but 'turns all of the whisky into ice, which makes it im possible to induce men to work in the field, stimulants being a necessity there. Last full I went to the farm, and, having nothing to do but watch the men, I whiled away the time with a barmonicon, upon which I am some what of an expert. The men had climbed the wheat stalks and were "picWtt g tho giaiu, w ll il vi plo jr vd aomo woll-known tunes. Suddenly a bliz zard struck us-the men fell to the ground, and, piling them into the wagons, I covered them with ice in or der to thaw out the frozen places, and got them to the house. I had warmed myself up by blowing the barmonicon, and kept it up, but it made no sound, the air being frozen too tightly for thero to be any vibration. Tho bliz zard lasted for three weeks, but one morniog the sun came out, and I shirted down the road I had traversed from the wheat field to go to town and take a train for Chicago. After I had gone about a mile I heard strains of music, hut could see no one playing. It seemed ali around me, and the tunes were those I had tried to play when caught in the blizzard. The strains continued until I reached the point where wo had started from, and then I realized that the air was thaw ing, and the notes that had frozen into the atmosphere wero being liber ated."-Washington Star. Wanderin?" Michael R-gan, of Middletown, Conn., has a bulldog that has quite a history. Neariy a year ago the dog was given to one of Mr. Regan's friends in Portland on account of his pugilistic tendencies. He was in the habit of spending a good share of his time on Main street, where he would attaok every dog that came his way, regardless of si?e. He had been clubbed by almcst every policeman in tho city, but they did not succeed in keeping him out of the rinif. After spending about a week in Portland, he returned home and began terroriz ing the Midddletown canine? as be fore. Ho was then presented to a man in Westfield, where he remained long enough to "whip" every dog in the viliage, and then he made his appear ance at his former home. A few weeks afterward he was put on board of a schooner, and when the vessel sailed ! Mike, as the dog was called, was a passenger. This occurred about ten months ago, aud Mr. Regan long since decided that he had succeeded in get ting rid of the dog. ? Be was more than surprised Monday morning to see the dog return after his long ab sence. Where he lett the vessel is a mystery, but from his tired appear ance when he arrived he had oome a long way. Tho vessel when last heard from was in New York, bound for Vir ginia,-Hartford Times. A Novel Fuueral Procession. I was walking along the canal the other day when my attention was at tracted by a novel funeral procession. Four little bovs, the oldest about ten years of age, and the youngest a toddler of two or three summers, were crying as though their hearts were broken. Tho oldest was drawing a small hand wagon, which contained a bundle. Following this were the other three boys in line. Each had upon his arm a strip of blaok calico, while the wagon was decorated with the same material. I stopped them and asked what the matter was. "It's a funeral, sir," said the oldest boy ; "our little dog died yesterday." Then lifting the little bundle from the wagon he threw it into the canal, and the four broth ers put their arms around each other, gave way to a grief as real as any they will ever know, for the dog was their playmate and they loved him as they did each other. And as the boys slow ly wended their ways baok home, 1 could seo that there would be but lit tle play for them that day.-Washing ton Star, I Caused by Vaccination. From the Journal, Detroit, Mich, ?

McDonald, und many a neighbor has reason to feel grateful to her for the kind and friendly interest she has manifested la cases of illness. She ls a kind-hearted friend, a natural nurse, and an intelligent and refined lady. To a reporter she recently talked at some length about Dr. Williams' Pink Pius, giving some very interesting instances in her own immediate knowledge of marvelous cures, ami the universal beneficence of tho remedy to those who had used it. "I have reason to know," said Mrs. Mo Donald, "something of the worth of this medicine, for it has been demonstrated In my own imm?diate family. My daughter Kittle ls attending high sohool. and has never beou vory strong since she began. I suppose she studies hard, and she has quite a distance to go every day. Whon the small-pox broke out all of the school chil drou had to be vaccinated. I took her over to Dr. Jameson and he vaccinated her. I never saw such an arm in my life and the doctor said he never did. She was broken but on her shoulders and baok and was just as sick as she could be. To add to it all neuralgia set in, and the poor ohild was in misery. She is naturally of a nervous temper ament and she sufferod most awfully. Even a?ter she recovered the neuralgia did not leave her. Stormy days or days that were damp or preceded a storm, she could not go out nt all. She was pale and thin, and had no appetite. "I have forgotten just who told me about the Pink Pills, but I got some for her and they cnn;J her right up. She has a nice color in her face, eats and sleeps well, goes to sohool every day, and is well and strong in every particular. I have never heard of anything to build up the blood to compare with Pink Pills. I shall always keep them in the house and recommend them to my neighbors."

A reporter cnllod, on Wednesdny evening, May 8, 1895, at the resi dence of Mr. William MoMahon, No. 1G88 Tearl street, Brooklyn village (Cleveland), 0., to learn, If possible, the cause ot tho noticeable Im provement in his physical condition over that of a year ago, when ho was a sufferer from indigestion and variotiii organfr disorders, "You see," began Mr. McMahon, "to start with, my work-that of setting type at the case-allows me little chance for bodily exercise, and ls alto gether too confining for anybody who is in the least subject to indiges tion or dyspepsia.

Then it took a seat in my LIVER, whioh became noticeably inactive, and I became alarmed about it. The first thing I turned my attention to was to secure a 'liver regulator," which, however, failed to regulate; next I sought relief in 'liver pills,' which so pained and griped me that the cure was, I thought, worse than the disease. The next tiling I did was to throw away the whole 'shooting match,* and rpsolvu to take no mora propri etory medicines. However, on hearing my tale of woe, on? day, at the office, a fellow-workman offored me a small Tabule-Bipans, he called it-which, he said, he would guarantee to act on the liver. I took it under protest, expecting to be douhleu up in about fifteen min utes with tho 'gripes.' But I was agreeably surprised in its action. It was very gentle, and I resolved to try a box. Since then I have gradu ally noted an entire change in the working of my system, and think that Bipans Tabales are tho best remedy for liver and stomach troubles this side of anywhere. They are really a substitute for physical exercise. Have one before you go?" And Mr. McMahon pro duced his box of "stand-bys" from his inside pocket os the reporter took his leave.
