Successful Climbing Impossible Without the Kope Foolhardy Daring. TYouth's Compinioa.1 The Alpine life-preserver is the rope. Without this, successful climbing is im possible, and life is needlessly risked. A rope, an alpenstock, or long pole with a sharp iron ind, and an ice ax, are the guides' stock in trade. The rope in general is manilla, weigh ing a little over an ounce to the foot, and capable of sustaining a dead weight of more than twenty tons. The rope is from 100 to 2 0 feet long and is fast ened about the waist of every member of the party, who marching in single tile twelve or tiftejn feet apart, keep the rope perfectly taut at every stcpt. As a rule, however, the Alpine guides aro careful and brave. Their principal danger often comes from the foolhardi ness of the people who look to them for protection, but who retuse to follow their advice. Some travelers persist in crossing glaciers without using ropes, or in ignoring the instabil ty of new snow, or in talking conrinu illy, and thereby exhausting themselvrs before they are half-way up the mountain. They walk into crevasses with their eyes turned skywards, and the guide risks his life in pulling them out again. They refuse to husband their strength, arid the guide has to carry them down steep paths barely a foot wide, with a frowning wall of rock on one hand, a 1,000-foot precipice on the other, and a swaying body on his back. In climbing the Alps, both tourists and guides take their lives in their hands. But the tourists aro emboldened to the risk by a love of adventure or a foolhardy daring. They risk their lives need'essly. hut the guides make it their daily work. They are protectors, pilots, rescuers. Upon them depend the lives of hundreds of people, and to save or protect these lives they are for ever endangering their own. Sicilian Superstitions. llngleside. The Sicilians aro charmingly super stitious. They are still believe that the govern trient has the power to give and cure cholera at its pleasure that it has at its disposition u contre, as they say in their dialect, a specific against the disease. In the worst time of the plague, the Sicilians have been heard to cry out: ,llCome, come, it's not so bad; we'll soon be rid of the cholera. The gov ernment will put a stop to it when there are 5,000 dead!" An anecdote of erjual savor is told of a young Sicilian who, affected with homesickness in Italy, longed to return to his beloved Sicily. Moving restlessly about the docks for sometime, he hap pens to meet a sea captain of his own race. Delighted with the chance, he implores him to take him on board his vessel and land him anywhere on the island. "Willingly," said the captain, "on one condition." "Name it; I subscribe to it in ad vance." "That you will give us the antidote for cholera" "I haven't any antidote for cholera, my man!" "What nonsensei Don't you belong to the government? Are you not the son of our mayor" A Cure for Malaria. INew York Times. "Has a cure been found for malaria yet?" questioned the reporter as the doc tor paused. , "For plain malaria quinine, of course, is infallible. 1'rofessor Crudelli, by the way, gives a simpler, less costly specific, which he claims is equally efficient. It is this: One lemon, peel and all, should be cut up, put in three tumblers of water, boiled down to one glassful, strained and put to cool. When cool the liquid is to be drank all at once, and the practice to be repeated daily or every other day, according tocircum stances of location or constitution." Curiiig Hydrophobia. (Paris e ter.j M. Pasteur is following up his success In the cJre of hydrophobia; he has now five patients undergoing vaccination and residing in the laboratory, all of whom have betn severely bitten by mad-dogs. Several applications have been made from foreign su Verers to be saved. The emperor of Austria's brother, who is a doctor, is coming to study, as an indoor patient, the new hydrophobia curing, under the eminent scientist. . When the Sun "Crossed i"he Line." Norwich Bulletin. Science determined long ago that when the sun "crossed the line" twice a year at a certain point on the equator directly under the sun a ship's quadrant would swing completely around. This event had never befallen any seaman, however, until Capt. Gurdon Pendleton, of Stonington, experienced it many years ago. It is supposed that to no other captain has the no . el occurrence happened. The Double Hard Knot In France. f Paris Ctr. Hartford Times. In France it is necessary to be mar ried twice if married at all in order to maker the knot secure. They tie a "doable hard knot," so to speak, and wax the knot with a good-sized "dot," as the dower is called. Gn a -e 1 lore's Villa. Gustave Dore once bought a villa on the outskirts of Paris, and had written up over'the entrance the musical quota tion, "Lo, Mi, Si, La, Do, lie." This, being properly interpreted, is "Domicile a Dore." . . A miniature copy of the capitol at Washington is being built for the state of Georgia. LINES IN A WA'TiNG-ROOM. A Remarkable Case. Under the above heading the "Don caster Reporter" of July 0, 1887, pub lishes the following in its editorial col umns : Our readers may recall the circumstance of a young clerk, named Arthur Kiehoid, falling insensible on the Wheatley Lane in this town some time ago, and being picked up, as he continued perfectly helpless, and taken in a cab by two gentlemen to the office of F. W. Fisher, Esq., the solicitor who employed him. On restoring him to consciousness it was ascertained that he was alliicted with what seemed to be an incurable disease. When he was able to speak he said he had been to his dinner anil was on his way back to his work, when suddenly his head was in a whirl and he fell in the street like a man who is knocked down. On coming to his senses in the solicitor's office he thought what this might mean, and feared he was going to have a fit of illness, which we all know is a very dreadful thing for a poor man with a family to care for. With this in his mind he at once sought the best medical advice, telling the doctors how he had been attacked. They ques tioned him, and found that his present malady was exhaustion of the nervous system, resulting from general debility, indigestion and dyspepsia of a chronic nature. This in turn had been caused by confinement to his desk and grief at the loss of dear friends by death. The coming on of this strange disease, as described by Mr. Kiehoid, must be of interest both to sick and well. He had noticed for several years previously, in fact, that his eyes and face began to have a yellow look; there was a sticky and unpleasant slime on the gums and teeth in the morning; the tongue coated ; and the bowels so bound and costive that it induced that most pain ful and troublesome ailment the piles. He says there was some pain in the sides and back and a sense of fullness on the right tide, as though the liver were enlarg ing, which proved to be a terrible fact. The secretions from the kidneys would be scanty and high-eoloredi with a kind of gritty or sandy deposit after standing. These things had troubled Mr. Kiehoid a long time, and after his fall in the street he clearly perceived that his lit of giddi ness was nothing more than a sign of the steady and deadly advance of the com plaint, which began in indigestion and dys pepsia. His story of how he went from one physician to another in search of a cure that his wife and little ones might not come to want is very pathetic and touching. Finally he became too ill to keep his situation and had to give it up. This was a sad calamity. He was appalled to think of how he should be able to live. But God raised up friends who helped to keep the wolf from the door. He then went to the seaside at Walton on-the-Naze, but neither the change, nor the physicians who treated him there, did any good. All being without avail he visited London, with a sort of vague hope that some ad vantage might happen to him in the me tropolis. This was in October, 1885. How wonderful, indeed, are the ways of Providence, which dashes down our high est hopes-and then helps us when we least expect it. While in London he stated his condition to a friend, who strongly advised him to try a medicine which he called Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, saying it was gen uine and honest, and often cured when everthing else had failed. He bought a bottle of a chemist in Pimlico, and began using it according to the directions. He did this without any faith or hope, and the public may, therefore, judge of his surprise and pleasure when after taking a few doses he felt great relief. He could eat better, his food distressed him less, the symptoms we have named abated, the dark spots which had floated before his eyes like smuts of soot gradually disap peared, and his strength increased. Before this time his knees would knock together whenever he tried to walk. So encouraged was he now that he kept on using Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup until it ended in completely curing him. In speaking of his wonderful recovery Mr. Kiehoid says it made him think of poor Kobinson Crusoe, and his deliver ance from captivity on his island in the sea; and added, "But for Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup the grass would now be growing over my grave." Our readers can rest assured of the strict truth of all the statements in this most re markable case, as Mr. Kiehoid (now resid ing at Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-Nuze,) belongs to one of the oldest-and most re spected families in the beautiful village of Long Melford, Suffolk, and his personal character is attested by so high an au thority as the Kev. C. J. Martyn. We have deemed the case of such importance to the public as to justify us in giving this short account of it in our columns. Bone Meal!

These Pills prevent fevers and all kinds of sickness, by removing all pois onous matter from the bowels. They operate briskly, yet mildly, without anv pain.
