For nearly four years I suffered from ovarian troubles. The doc tor insisted on an operation as the only way to get well. I, however, strongly objected to an operation. My husband felt disheartened as well as I, for home with a sick woman is a disconsolate place at best. A friendly druggist advised him to get a bottle of Wine of Cardui for me to tiy, and he did so. I began to improve in a few days and my recovery was very rapid. With in eighteen weeks I was another being. Mrs. Stowe's letter shows every woman how a home is saddened by female weaknes and how completely Wine of Cardui cures that sick ness and brings health and happi ness again. Do not go on suffer ing. Go to your druggist today ana secure a $1.00 bottle of Wine of Cardui. fWNE*CMNflll WEIRD TALE OF ABYSSINIA. Extraordinary Discoveries of Crls Said to Have Been Made by Hypnotised Boys. A Swiss engineer, M. Ug, in the em- ; ploy of King Menelek, the ruler of Abys sinia, tells some strange things about that country and one of his most weird stories relates to the lobasha, or crime i .overer. These are boys not more ! than 12 years of age. who are put into a hypnotic trance, and in this slate dis- I cover the unknown perpetrators of ; crimes. Of many of these almost in- I credible eases of the hunting down of criminals he had personal knowledge, in a ease of incendiarism in Adis Abeba the lobasha was called to the spot and given a cupful of milk into which a green powder had been put and then was made to smoke a pipe of tobacco mixed with a black powder. The boy was then hypnotized. After a few min utes he jumped up and began running to Harrar. For fully 1C hours he ran. and so swift was his pace that profes sional runners were not able to . . :p up with him. Near Harrar the lobasha left the road, ran into a field and touched a Calla working there with his hand. The man confessed. Another case which Emperor Mene !ek and M. l!g investigated was that of a a unit . nd roboery near Adis Abeba. The lobasha was taken to the site of ihe murder and put into his peculiar psychic slate. For awhile he ran around the place, then back to Adis Ab. ba to a church, which he kissed, Then to an other church, which he also 1 issed. Coming to some water—water breaks t- speii—the boy woke from his trance. He was again hypnotized snd off he went, round some huts, and at the door of one of them lay down and tell asleep. The owiK of the hut, who was not in, was on his return arrested. He stoutly denied his guilt, but some of the goods belonging to his victim were found in the hut and he ultimately confessed. The murderer was brought before Menelek. who asked him to detail his doings alter the commission of the j crime. Those were found to correspond h the movements of the lobasha. He said that, overcome with remorse, he ran to two churches and kissed them. I melek wanted to have another proof of the i lasha's gifts. He himself took some jr !.. belonging U em press. A lobasha was s^-u for. first ran ab t in or^s' room», then into Afenelek's . n ro, ...s—went through other rooms and finally fell down on M nelek's bed. M. Ilg car ,,ive no explanation of this wonderful gift, which seems to be con fined t 'ortain tribe, or perhaps racial confederation, the members of which arc distributed over the whole of Abys sinia. % It is also worth remembering that a very sirr>"ar method of discovering crimes was ascribed to the old Egyptians 4,000 years ago. MARK DIDN'T WAIT. Tbonaht, Perhaps, That Something Alight Be Said In Compli ment to Him. all An acquaintance of Mark Twain tells the foliowingamusing story: "When 1 lived with my brother in Buf falo," he says, "Mark Twain occupied a cottage on the opposite side of the street. We didn't see very much of him, but one morning as we were enjoying our cigars on the veranda, after break fast, we saw him come to his door in his dressing-gown and slippers and look over at us. He stood at his door and smoked for a minute, as if making up his mind about something, and at last opened his gate and came lounging across the street. There was an unoccupied rocking chair on the veranda, and when my brother offered it to him he dropped into it with a sigh of relief. He smoked for a few moments, and said: " 'Nice morning.' ! " 'Yes, very pleasant.' ! " 'Shouldn't wonder if we had rain by and by.' j " 'Well, we could stand a little.' " 'This is a nice house you have here.' I " 'Yes; we rather like it.' " 'How's your family?' " 'Oh, we're all very veil.' "There was another impressive si lence, and finally Mark Twain crossed his legs, blew a puff of smoke into the air, and in his lazy drawl remarked: " T suppose you're surprised to see me over here so early. Fact. is. I haven't ! been so neighborly perhaps as I ought to be. We must mend that state of things. But this morning I came over because I thought you might be inter ested in knowing that your roof is on fire. It struck me that it would be a good idea if—' "But at the mention of fire the whole family rushed upstairs. When we had put the fire out and returned to the ver anda, we were hardly surprised to find that the humorist hadn't waited." Personal Property.

Two New Wordi, A swarm of trained artists and cam eras took pictures and sketches of all striking gowns and hats at the New York horse show, recently. No fashionably dressed woman escaped the "camerani acs" and "sketcheleptics," as they are called, modistes and milliners having hired them to secure hints for future use. THE NEW BRAIN FAG. Fashionable Disease Because of In ference Which It Natarally Lends. j _ "Brain fag" is the new term for what old-fashioned people called "nerves," and is just now attracting much atten tion because it is thought to be a novel malady, says the New York Hera! .1. To overwork a brain implies piim > existence of the organ, ar.d h< nee the ... ..... disease which attacks the thinking ap , : vi paratus is quite likely to become tash ionable. There is always ready sym pathy for the victim whose active brain runs away with him, and whose brilliant genius so soon wears its setting. It is pitiful, indeed, for the poor man who cannot help thinking too profoundly at r all times and in all places. Intellect r then becomes an actual curse rallier than a blessing. To be spared the in fliction should be the cry of evoluting humanity. The hard-hearted medical experts, however, are very skeptical regarding any special danger from the "fag." The brain may tire at times, with the other part of the body, but such exhaustion is physical rather than mental. Wo must not blame the poor brain for ever; thing, oven for too deep thought. No one has been known to have been hurt by the latter, but. on the contrary, vomitless numbers have been benefited when the thought was worth anything. There is really no proof that the brain can be overwrought by legitimate work of its own. Eliminate physical strain, worry, hustle and hurry, ar.d the more the brain has to do the better for its for tunate poss°ssor. All weak organs tire quickly, • to • H acknowledge the "lag" for what it l sally is places the unfortunate sufferer bc md the pale of ordinary sympathy, ihcre is no measure of brain ability in quiet, well ordered work - , and the one who attempts to fix a standard of em r anee is plainly an incompetent and a shirk. It is always the fret r.. -t than the work that lands the fagged one where he belongs. Mere nerve tire is one thing and real intellectual tire is quite another thing. PADUA'S PALACE OF REASON. Magnificent Hall That I« Sai«l v It»* Largely in the FiHt» World. ! Italy should really have the riches * all the mines of Goiconda to mainta . her artistic and histone treasures . j they should be. There is r--"rcely a vil lage 'Auich does not have u, iniquity, so that it would be irupoab.c.e for "ie richest government in the worm u i what is expected of comparatively poor Italy, v, lilts a Badua correspondent of the Pah Mall Gazette. This was brought forcibly before me to-day in the magnificent hall of the Palace of Reason litre. The hall itself —said to be the largest in tûe world—is in good enough repair, but the palace requires millions to put it in order, it lias practically only one big vaulted frescoed room, containing a colossal wooden horse by Donatello; nothing else. Across the center ins a strip of white marble, put down by no less a per son than Galileo, to mark the noon hour. The great horse was made lor a cardinal to simulate the taking of Troy, but ,s dear to ail patriots, as five men liven in it fur eight days under the Austrian dominion while the Austrian police searched for them high and low. They lived to tell the tale, the last, Capt. Beltrami, dying only a few months ago. It is, however, the university and its memories which dominate the town. England has her interest here also. Among all the coats of arms of great students, that of William Harvey is proudly exhibited. He studied here and left his mark among his contemporaries. Other English and Scottish names are also to be seen. The building, however, breathes the spirit of Galileo. In the great hall he gave his lectures from a wooden "pulpit," still preserved, which is nothing but rough boards stoutly nailed 'ogether and much shrunken from the knives of foreign souvenir hunters. Some of his bones hang in the anatomy room, poor reminders of a great man, the glory of the universe and of Italy. Enjoring «lie Sport.

Proceedings at Helena. The Helena Independent of last Sat urday morning gave the following ac r >unt of the proceedings in the local _ . ,__n,,. notion test case in the supreme court torney Charles Wagner, formerly • =t Friday: In pursuance of the plan to test the constitutionality of the local option law, W. P. O'Brien, a saloon-keeper at H > milton, Ravalli county, who was fined for violation of the law. vester 'Liv applied to Chief Justice Theodore Brantlv, of the supreme court, for a writ of habeas corpus, directed to Sheriff Joshua Pond, of Ravalli coun ty. to whose custody O'Brien was com mitted until his fine was paid. Tlie application for the v r't was presented to the chief justice bv At of Helena, but now a resident of Hamil ton. The chief justice directed that the writ issue, making it returnable before Judge F. C. Webster at Mis soula. next Monday morning at 10 o'clock. no se When the new law went into effect in Ravalli county a few days ago. O'Brien refused to close his saloon, for the purpose of making a test case. He was arrested and taken before a justice of the peace, where he was found guilty and fined S100 and costs and committed to the custody of the sheriff to be confined in the county jail till his fine was paid, at the rate of $2 per day. Petitioner's Contentions. In his petition for the writ, O'Brien alieges that he is unlawfully deprived of his liberty, having been arrested under the provisions of chapter 10. title 7, part 3 of the political code, found guilty and fined. The alleged offense, he says, was committed in the incorporated town of Hamilton, and the provisions of the chapter quoted have no application to incorporated towns, because the power to license, tax and regulate saloons is given to such towns by the provisions of section 4800 of the political code. The provisions of the chapter re ferred to, it is alleged, are unconstitu tional because legislative power is delegated to the people contrary to the provisions of article 5, section 1, of the constitution of Montana, which vests in the legislative assembly alone the power to make law. It is fui ther alleged that the pro visions of the chapter complained of are not effective in Ravalli county for the reason that no lawful election thereunder has been held in the county. Claims Was Within the Law. O'Brien alleges that at the time of his arrest on the 7th of January he was lawfully conducting the business of vending intoxicating liquors at re tail under a license issued to him as required by law for the "conduction" of his business. The petitioner asks "that a writ of habeas corpus issue, directed to Joshua Pond, commanding him to have the body of W. P. O'Brien before your honorable court, or otherwise, as to your honors may seem meet, at a time and place to be specified, to do and re ceive what shall then and there be considered by your honors concerning him, together with the time and cause of your petitioner's detention, and said writ, and that he may be restored to bis liberty." Judge Webster will therefore hear the matter next Monday, and it is un derstood, whatever the issue of this hearing, the question will ultimately come before the supreme court for settlement.
