To say that a man has Bright'6 disease was once considered equivalent to saying that he stood in the valley of the shadow of death. The end was only a question of time. But that was before "Warner's Safe Cure had spread its benefits over the land. 0. H. Lincoln, of Medford, Mass., says: " I had typhoid fever, and af ter it came kidney trouble, and it was whispered around that I had Bright's disease of the kid neys. I knew what that meant, so I pitched the medicine I had outdoors. I then bought one bottle of "Warner's Safe Cure, and took it according to direc tions. The first bottle gave me relief and I bought a second. Before that was gone I had gained nearly ten pounds. I continued taking Safe Cure, and it cured me." "I am Sffcy-nine years old, and enjoy as good health as any man of my age. If anyone has kidney trouble and "Warner's Safe Cure will not cure him, nothing will. I believe it the best and only cure for kidney disease on earth." Nowhere does the proverb, "Delays are dangerous," apply with such force as in kidney de rangement. "When Bright's disease has set in the kidney tissue is breaking down and passing away every minute. The strength of the body is sapped steadily, surely. Inasmuch as "Warner's Safe Cure alone stops kidney degen eration, should it not be used without an hour's delay when pain in the back and head, a cold skin and bad digestion give unmistakable warning. LETTERS FROM BOSTON. Are Always Llterry, hut Some Peo ple Don't Appreciate Them. Little Willie was trying to make it pleasant for Mr. Slurkleton while Miss Glldersley was up stairs "getting ready." Sir. JIurkleton was to take her to the open, and that of course meant a large number of "last touches" for her and her mother and the maid. "We got some relations livin in 303 ton," Willie said, probably because he couldn't think of anything else that would serve as a starter. "Have you?" Mr. Murkleton asked, pretending to be Immensely Interested. "I'es. Sister Sue was down there vlsitln them last summer." "She was telling me about It the oth er day. Had a very pleasant time, did she not?" "I guess so, but she's purty sorry she went" "Why?" " 'Cause our cousins down there keep writin to her every little while now. You ought to see how mad she gits every time a letter comes from one of them." "Oh, I guess you must be' mistaken about that, Willie. Why should she get angry when they write to her?" "Xou see, she has to take a whole day lookln through the dictionary when ever she answers one of their letters, and, my, but it makes her sweat!." Chicago Times-Herald.

Perhaps the plague in Paraguay is merely an attack of pigue, or sand flea. This insect is called nigua in the native language. 'In 1S70 it killed a whole colony of Englishmen, consisting of 200 families, turning the colony, which was at Itape, Into a cemetery. A Ger man colony at Acegua was driven out. The pigue causes buboes and attacks the warmest parts of the body that Is, the cavities and the groin and armpit Just the same spots as the eastern plague. It attacks Englishmen and Germans preferentially and avoids those that use but little soap. Soaps clean the body, and the pigue likes clean persons to eat It also avoids people who eat more or less poisonous food. A man saturated with alcohols, Boca gin, nicotine and Faseo de Julio cookery is pretty well safe from the sand flea. Buenos Ayres Herald.

Mali 9 No. IV! AN 188 SOUTH ne HOWARD ST Did Yon Ever See a Hone Cry T Many people believe that horses do not weep, but those who have much to do with these faithful creatures know that on several occasions they will shed tears as well as express sorrow in the most heartbreaking manner. In the west, where the hardiness of the ponies causes thr riders to almost over look the necessity of providing for their needs, it is quite common when the treather Is extremely cold to leave an unblanketed pony tied up for two or three hours when the temperature la nearly zero ana while its owner is transacting business or-getting drunk. In this case the suffering is evidenced by the cries, which are almost like sobs, and unmistakable tears freeze on to tide cheeks like icicles. When a-horse falls In the street and gets injured, the shock generally numbg the senses so much that it does not ei ther cry or groan, but under some con ditions an injured horse will solicit sympathy In the most distinct manner. I remember a favorite horse of my own which trod on a nail long enough to pierce its foot. The poor thing hob bled up to me on three legs and cried as nearly like a child in trouble as any thing I can describe. The 3ight was a very touching one, as was also the ctId- pled animal's gratitude when the nail was pulled out and the wound dressed. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Governors Jmland. There Is a large expanse of rolling sward on Governors island kept at all times In the pink of condition. This little island on! Battery park is con ceded to be the best kept army post on the Atlantic coast. There are two reasons for this. Fort Columbus is the headquarters of the department pf the east. It must assume an appearance in keeping with its high standing In the department. It also has a military prison, and the convicts sent there for terms of months or years are sentenced to hard labor. Under the supervision of sentinels these men keep the valks and prome nades scrupulously clean and the sward closely clipped and free from falling leaves and other litter. They also give proper attention to the vari ous buildings and their immediate sur-" roundlngs. New York Press Some Keep On.

He is a postal clerk and was In the car next to that which was dynamited by the bandits. .Aid he didn't run a bit at that exciting pe riod. The reason was a gun held by cne of the robbers and pointed in the direc tion of Mr. Morton's head, which, at that moment, he says, looked to him like one of Dewey's cannons. 'Say, I thought It was all a joke at first," he explains. "A brakeman jump ed aboard my car after the engineer had obeyed the stop signal and brought the train to a standstill. The brakey had his hands above his head and look ed real funny. He turned about, fac ing outward. 'That's all right,' I says. 'You can put your hands down now.' But he didn't put 'em down. 'Well,' I says in a tone meant to reassure him, put 'em down, why don't you? He didn't look around at all. but replied in a voice that sounded as though he had a chllL 'This is no joke.' "Some one outside then says. 'Shut up!' In a way that sounded as if he knew what he was talking about, and I then turned my face around against an awful big gun. Soon another clerk was put in the car, and he had his hands heavenward, too, and kept 'em there, and I began to realize that the thing was no comedy. Three of us were holding our hands up th?n, and we didn't look a bit funny. Next In came the express messenger, his hands up, and there were four of us, and none of us laughed. - "Then the explosion came, and the force of it rocked our car like a ship at sea in a gale. A masked man with that cannon pointing toward us held his place ;)ust outside at the car door, and we didn't dare to move. "After about 25 minutes two men I think only two joined the watchman at-our car, and they all went away to gether. One of 'em yelled back, 'Don't you marks move for a little while, or you'll get a lead plUT and we didn't move lor well, maybe a minute or two. I've been called a mark before, but I never felt so much like one as I did In those few minutes. "When we got outside, we waited around for the engine to be brought back. And, say, that engineer was a sight! It's not true that he was wound ed in the breast. They didn't even shoot at him, though they did fire at a, brakeman; but the engineer looked as though he had been half shot anyhow. He was completely wilted and could hardly talk. He didn't even want to turn back from where they had'made him run his engine up the track a cou ple of miles, and when be was ap proaching the spot again they say he tried to hide in the tender. Anyhow, he was like a leaf when he was helped out of his cab. "We had to leave the poor fellow at De Kalb, ifftigb his home K in Clin ton, la., where he leaves the train on the regular run. The delay was five hours, and we got in here at 12:30 to day instead of S:50. We made up some time by fast running. "Yes, the rest of us were cool enough, I guess.
