Obituary Notice of a Mare.
A recent number of the Westminster
Gazette contains the following obituary
notice: "Mercifully sent to sleep at
Landguard, full of years and honor,
Freedom, a chestnut mare, belonging
to Dr. Cowper. She was bred by me
and was named Freedom by Mr. Bart
lett on account of her absolute freedom
•of movement when quite a tiny filly.

A Woman's Complexion.
In the spring, when the young man's lancy is lightly
turning to thoughts of love, the young lady of fashion
Is spending her spare time over her complexion, for
the winter months of close stifled rooms, late hours
and the long round of dissiuation demanded by society
begin to tell strongly on the bloom of the feminine
•cheek and a thorough treatment must be given to tone
up the system and bring back the freshness before
-summer arrives. *
The first thing is to look well after the diet and see
that it is wholesome and varied, and sufficient in
quantity to keep up the strength.
Some skins in the spring* of the year are subject to
•disfiguring eruptions and the most approved means of
:getting rid of this trouble is to take Vogeler 's Curative
-Compound, which purifies, cools and cleanses the
blood from all impurities, and removes every trace of
skin eruptions. Beware of any and all externa) face
-and skin remedies, such as lotions, powders, soaps
etc., many of which are absolutely dangerous, from
the fact that they contain powerful chemicals, which
have been known to mark and otherwise disfigure the
face for life. Vogeler's Curative Compound is made
wholly from purely vegetable ingredients, from the
formula of one of London's most noted • living physi
cians, ar.d has no equal for beautifying the complexion,
because it purifies and cleanses the blood and makes
pure rich red blood. It also tones up the system,
gives an appetite, ensures sweet and peaceful sleep
invigorates and strengthens the entire nervous organL
xatioa It makes people well.

WHERE TRUE DECORUM REIQN8.
Btrangert Are Awed bjr the Dignity
of the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court la a ceaseless
source of Interest to tbe stranger in
Washington. Even when the court Is
not In session the chamber In which tt
sits,Is viewed by a constant stream of
visitors, tfcho enter It with quiet rever
ence. Ordinarily It Is the dullest place
where men aasemble to do busluess.
Tbe decorum Is painful, but this does
not deter the American who comes to
inspect the seat of government from
lingering fondly about the place. When
the famous Kentucky case was argued
not only was the chamber filled, but a
long line of Visitors waited in the hall,
says the Washington Post.
The manner of these pilgrims at the
shrine of the law does not Indicate any
loss of respect on the part of the plain
people for th(s august body. Tbe two
places In Washington where 'he van
dal stands In awe are tbe Supreme
Court and the White House, and the
latter has not been afforded invariable
protection. In all other places may be
found* the dirty finger prlpts of the
vandal. The monument Is chipped,
statues are marred, fragments are cut
from the hangings of the Senate and
House of Representatives, names have
been scratched Into tbe marble and on
the bronze doors, but something holds
the most ruthless In check when he
comes to the Supreme Court.
There Is no talking among the specta
tors when the court Is In session, and
even when the bench Is vacant and
strangers are viewing the deserted
chamber they uniformly speak In whis
pers. The old white-bearded colored
mnn who sits at the door is the personi
fication of silence and dignity, and the
sight of hint Is enough to make the
most frivolous grow grave and walk on
their tiptoes. He silently opens the
door for each comer and noiselessly
closes It. If the chamber is full he
stands with his hack to the door. and.
without uttering n' word, keeps others
from attempting to enter.
The other day two lawyers met In
front of the courtroom doors, one attired
In a light suit and tbe other in dark
clothes. The one In a light suit remind
edthe other that he had on dark clothes,
but a purple necktie. The colored tie did
not bar him. But the lawyer In the light
suit could not venture into the cham
ber. Though they were merely specta
tors. they must wear dark clothes If
they would appear within the bar of
the court. What awful thing would
happen If one should appear before the
bar of the Supreme Court In a light
suit is not known, for no one has ever
had the temerity to try It
••KIT" CARSON'S REAL GRAVE.
The great trapper, hunter, scout and

supposed to be buried In Santa Fe,

Tourists are shown this monument and
led to believe that the valiant "Kit"
lies beneath It In reality he is buried
In the little graveyard In Taos. N. M..
and his tombstone is a wooden cross.
But his grave is always decorated with
wreaths and flowers and American
flags. Some one is faithful to the mem

coins are knovvu to be in circulation In
Siam, and no living hutnnu being can
discriminate between the good and

these apes. These monkey cashiers
possess the faculty of distinguishing
the rude Siamese counterfeits in such
an extraordinary degree that no train

their unique avocation.
In plying his trade the ape cashier

Where the Tan Shoes Have Gone.
What has become of all tbe tan

many until the damp wether of early
March, when several wearers of sup
posedly black leather shoes discovered
that their pedal adornmeut was only

It is told in the Shoe Trade Journal
that two Chicago dye houses alone have
recently changed 18,000 pairs of shoes
from tan to black. But the dye won't
stand the dampness, and tbe firms who
have thus victimized their patrons have
lost a great amount of trade and dis
covered that their greed' to economize
has cost them dearly.
