A TERRIBLE BIDE.
From ths Times, Buffalo, N. T. Alonff one of the dlamtl roads In Western New York, a man and wife •were driving as rapidly as the darkness and Inclement weather would permit. The rain beat down upon the rubber covering and found Its way Into every crack and opening. The occupants of the buggy were Dean Jones and his ■wife, of Sprlngvllle, N. Y. Everybody ts familiar with the name. He is the ■well-known starting Judge, who has be-, come famous for his Impartial and faU^ treatment of Jockeys at the post. It was about ten years ago when Mr. and Mrs. Jones took that fatéful ride that came near costing her her life. Mrs. Jones' clothes were thorough ly soaked before town was reached. There was no fire in their hotel room nrid she became chilled to the bone be fore the little blaze the attendant start led warmed the atmosphere. From that Itlme on Mrs. Jones was an ill woman. Her trouble—well, It was about every thing with which human flesh can be afflicted. She had a strange, queer feeling in her head, that felt as if sev eral shot were rolling around loose on her brain. Pen cannot describe the torture she suffered. Local doctors told her she had water on the brain. A Times reporter called upon Mrs. Jones, who said: "Ever since that terrible wetting I .received, up to a year ago, I was an (Invalid. I had terrible neuralgia pains ,ln the head which often went to my Ifeet and limbs. I was. often In such a terrible state that I had to use a crutch to get around or eise Bilde a chair be fore me to move about the house. I was very ill for five years. In spells, and never expected to get well. It was a blood disease, I guess. One of the doctors I consulted said I had clotted blood in my head, and perhaps I did. He could not cure me, neither could several other doctors I tried. I also used many patent medicines, but they did me no good. My complexion was a perfect white, and my ears bo transpar ent you could look through them. My blood was turning to water. "Look at me now; do I look sick?" The reporter was forccd to admit that he had seldom seen a more per fect embodiment of health. With pardonable pride Mrs. Jones said: "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People did lt. I can go anywhere now, while before I commenced using Dr. Williams' remedy I could not move out of the house. For three years, would you believe it, I did not even go to church. I was not always confined to my bed, but could not leave the house. Wherever I go, people say: 'Why, Mrs. Jones, how well you ara looking. How did it happen?' and I always tell them 'Pink Pills did it.' I have not had the ■ slightest touch of my old illness for the last six months, and feel as if I never had been 111 in my life." Mr. Jones said: "You can readily Imagine how highly we regard the remedy in this house, where we hare had a wife and mother restored to per fect health." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are »old by b.11 dealers, or will bo sent post paid on receipt of price (50 cents a box, or »ix boxes for $2.50—they are never sold In bulk, or by the 100) by addressing Dr. Williams' Medicine Company,' Bchwectady, N. Y. Veils for Summer Wear. A veil protects the face front dust, gives a stylish finish to the headgear, and improves the looks of the wearer if the right kind is worn. A dotted veil is usually more becoming than a plain one, but the dots should be far apart so as not. to come within the line of the eyes. Black veils are the first choice, then black with white figures nnd border. A bordered veil must be worn with the border below the chin. A double-width veil, having loose, easy folds under the chin, is the most be coming to a slender face. Black veils are worn with any color of hat, but brown nnd blue ones only look well with hat or trimming of the same color. (Jray is worn with any hat, and gray chiffon veiling is very stylish this season for traveling wear. Cream white veils are becoming to young fresit faces even up to middle life, but clear white nets are trying to any woman over twenty-five. Veils are not properly worn to evening entertain ments.—Ladies' Home Journal.

Gladness Comes With a better understanding of tlio transient nature of the many phys ical ills, which vanish before proper ef forts--gentle efforts—pleasant efforts— rightly directed. There is comfort in the knowledge, that so many forms of sickness are not due to any actual dis ease. but simply to a constipated condi tion of the system, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt ly removes. That is why it is the only remedy with tnillionsof families, and is everywhere esteemed so highly by all who value good health. Its beneficial effects are due to the fact, that it is the one remedy which promotes internal cleanliness without debilitating the organs on which it acts. It is therefore ail important, in order to get its bene ficial effects, to note when you pur chase, that you have the genuine arti cle. which is manufactured by the Cali fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by all reputable druggists.

Dr. Duncan, who has paid much at tention to the subject Of the application of electricity ns a motive power on ex isting steam lines, says it is a mistake to suppose that electric traction is till in an experimental stage. Almost ev ery question connected with the sub ject hns been already settled, and the results have, in every (ase, been favor able to electricity, so far as it has been tried. The experimental intramural road gave results so far beyond the most sanguine expectations, that with in a few months one of the longest ele vated systems in Chicago was similarly equipped. The latest striking success in electric traction has been achieved In the operation of the special locomo tives made for hauling trains through the Baltimore tunnel. The locomotive proved so powerful that no known method of testing is sufficient in its scope to determine their efficiency. Dr. Duncan befieves these locomotives will pull any train that will hold itself to gether. The only obstacle existing to day in the equipment of long trunk lines economically is the transmission of power. The fact that power gener ated at Niagara Falls is now being de livered in New York, 450 miles off, with a loss of only half its efficiency, is of the utmost significance, and it has probably done more than any recent event to strengthen the belief that the problem of cheap transmission of pow er will soon be worked out. Dr. i)un can is confident that the next few years will see trains run from Buffalo east ward to New York, and westward to Chicago, by electricity, and that the vast culm piles of Penr.sylvania used as the source of power for the Pennsyl vania Railway system between Pitts burg and New York.

The statement of an Italian sea cap tain that he had proved by experience that a ship goes faster when her sail are perforated with a number of holes than when they are quite sound, was at first looked upon as too ridiculous for consideration. I'nbelievers, how ever, now find that the Italian has gone a long way toward proving his case. His theory is that the force of the wind can not fairly take effect on an inflated sail, because of the cush ior of immovable air that tills up the hollow. To prevent this cushion col lecting he bored a number of holes in the sail, which let part of the wind blow right through it and allowed the remainder to strike against the can ^s and exercise its full effect. Sev eral trials have been made, and it looks as if this is another of those paradoxical truths which appear so impossible on the surface. The experi ments were made in all weathers. In a light wind a boat with ordinary sails made four knots, while with the per forated sails she covered live and a quarter knots; in a fresh breeze she (lid seven knots with ordinary sails, and eight and three-quarters knots with the improved sails; in a strong wind she did eight knots and ten knots respectively. If this augmented speed were sustained throughout a I long voyage it would increase I lie value of the ship one-fifth, as she I viould make the same trip in four weeks that she did before iu live weeks.

It is interesting to turn from the commercial anil industrial develop ments to the long rows of cases in which Mr. Colt, on behalf of the United States patent office, lias brought to gether a collection of no fewer than 3(35 models of electrical apparatus, filed with the department at Washing ton. Here one strikes deep at the root of things, and an hour spent over these cases equips the intelligent ob server for a ready comprehension of all the brilliant moving apparatus seen elsewhere around the halls. For in stance, in one case is Edison's first in candescent lamp, so recent and so fa miliar that one is startled to learn that 30,000,000 such incandescent lamps are now burning around the world. Near by is a model of the first patent upon a system of distribution which is the basis of all modern work ' ol' any bulk iu cities. Not far away lie all the early models of the tele phone, over which Prof. Bell spent several minutes in pleased surprise when visiting the show Jast week. A bare twenty years has elapsed since, as a poor struggling teacher, Bell placed Iiis models with the patent office, but to-day, thanks to his efforts and those of other men whose work is included here, 750,000,000 telephonic conversations are exchanged in this country every year, or more than ten times its many as there are on the tel egraph.—New York I'ost.

Willis, living in the country be low here, says that for some time past he has been greatly annoyed by rats in his smoke house. About a month ago he purchased a big wire and tin rat trap, and has since succeeded in catching some twenty-five of the big rodents. This seemed to settle mat ters so far as rats were concerned, but no sooner were they disposed of than the mice became equally as ob noxious. the rats having left them a fair field. As he had no mouse trap on the place, Willis borrowed a big cat from one of his neighbors, and last night put Tom in tlie smoke house to make a raid on the mice. This morning he visited the scene of battle, hoping to find the cat master of the situation, with the mice nowhere in evidence. Instead he found the cat sitting on his haunches the picture of misery, hav ing been outwitted by the designs of the overastute mice. It seems that Willis had left the big rat trap sitting behind a barrel iu the smoke house, and into this the mice had betaken themselves as soon as they found they were being closely chased by poor Tom, who had not been able to make an entrance into the barricade of tin and wire. When Willis found the trap there were elev en scared little mice safely housed therein. Thinking, of course, that ho had them captured he fastened Tom in the smoke house again, and carried the trap outside, setting it down by the door while he went for a kettle of boiling water to demolish the catch at one fell swoop. But those mice had not lived in vain. Finding themselves safely outside and beyond the reach of the cat's paws, they lost no time iu improving their opportunity for escape afforded by Willis' absence, and made their exit from the big rat trap as easily as they had entered it, and scampered off into safe hiding places before another and swifter danger overtook them.—Alex andria (La.)

Perry, a well known physician of this city, and W. C. Cheney, superintendent of the Port land General Electric company. The experiments were made with gold bearing rock, in which the rays defined the free gold as plainly as if it lay on the surface of the quartz. So far as known, this is the first successful ex periment. of the kind with quartz, and the results obtained justify the asser tion that the new ray will prove of immense value in mining operations. Besides their successful experiments with quartz Dr. Perry and Mr. Cheney have succecded in cutting down the time of exposure to a quarter of an hour. The importance of this decrease in time is significant, when it is re quired to retain one position without moving throughout tin 1 exposure. Botli I)r. Perry and Mr. Cheney explain this decrease by the effectiveness of Mr. Cheney's induction coil, which was used in all the experiments, and which its owner considers the most powerful coil west of Chicago.—San Francisco Exa miner.
