To the Minerva Company.
Dear Sirs: Having taken your Tonic
at intervals during the past two years
I have pleasure in being able to certify
that It ha3 proved a distinct success.
Acting upon the recommendation of
my medical adviser to take a Tonic
when necessary, I choose the Minerva,
and have every reason to be satisfied
with the result; so much so that I
always keep it In the house. When
from stress of work I feel run down
I have recourse to the Tonic, which in
variably has the desired effect, as after
a few doses I am right again for some
months. Feeling that the Tonic has
done me much good it will be a pleas
ure to recommend it, and I have no
objection to you publishing this report.
I am.

FIFTY ON A SIDE
The Manner of Playing
Football in China.
Grand Rushing All Is Fair But
Pigtail Pulling Game a f
Variation.
(Chicago Times Herald.)
Chinamen are generally not credited
with being quick to accept innova
tions, so that when it is said that
northern China boasts of several foot
ball teams a good deal of surprise will
be evinced. Yet football is no new
game among the Celestials, at least
among tho&e who inhabit northern
China, and has 6een in existence a
number of years.
Of course, the game is not played
exactly according to intercollegiate
rules, and a basket, or something
which looks like one, replaces the mod
ern football. The Chinamen, besides,
have no goals, and the gridiron is re
placed by the streets of the town in
which the deadly combat is waged with
fifty lusty Celestials on a side.
There is not a man among them,
however, who is not six feet high, and
several of them are three inches taller,
while their average weight is about 200
pounds. The men who form the team
are inhabitants of northern China and
are typical of the race of giants pro
duced in that part of the world.
Lined up against them the knights
of the gridiron of Yale and Princeton
would appear as a team of pigmies,
and the Chinese giants would give the
collegians a battle royal if they could
be induced to appear on an American
football field. A club with a collective
weight of 2,000 pounds could carry
everything before it.
The main idea in the Chinese game
of football, as. in the American, is to
carry the wickerwork basket into the
opponents' end of the town, and this is
often done by stealth as well as by
brute force. There are no twenty
minute halves, .but the game is con
tinued until one side accomplishes its
purpose, and it often lasts for days.
The hundred combatants are scat
tered over the town, and are each pro
vided with whistles, which they blow
in order to bring assistance. When a
scrimmage occurs the Chinamen give
vent to their feelings in the most pe
culiar noises, frequently shrieking
with delight. Their yells of triumph,
which resound through the air when
the ball is discovered, are likened by
one who has heard them to the "plain
tive cry of a pig that has been
speared." The charging is generally
done with the head.
The only precaution taken by mem
on the football field is for the preser
vation of their pigtails, which are
cared for as though they were worth
a thousand times their value. With
this exception they throw caution to
the winds and devote themselves with
all their strength to the play. Any
game where brute strength is required
they would excel in.
On the day when a football match is
to take p'laee the streets of the town
are cleared and the non-participants
sit at their windows to watch the game
if it should come their way. A consid
erable quantity of opium is given to
the winning team.
VANILLA BEANS ARE VALUABLE.
(The Detroit Journal.)
Vanilla beans are $16 a pound at
wholesale. Silver is $7.20 a pound.
Troy weight, or avoirdupois about $9.
Vanilla beans are, therefore, twice as
valuable, weight for weight, as silver.
There is no vegetable product worth so
much in the open market. The price,
$16 a pound, is likely to be advanced.
So say buyers of vanilla'beans now in
Mexico, which country is the only one
where that rare vegetable grows to
such perfection as to make it valuable
for extracts. There is an inferior sort
of bean, called the vanillon, and some
wild species of the same, that are used
as substitutes or adulterants. These
varieties are dangerous to health, and
sometimes produce death.
There is the same difference in
varieties of the so-called vanillon as
there is between mushrooms and toad
stools; the one is healthful food the
other a quick poison. On account of
the great cost of genuine vanilla, ice
cream men are much tempted to em
ploy manufactured and artificial sub
stitutes. To come back to the crop of
vanilla bean?, which grow best in Vera
Cruz and Oaxaca, Mexico, there is not
a pound of last year's crop in the mar
ket. In ISO! there was a pest which
destroyed the crop that year. In 1S93
the Indians got into trouble with the
authorities and destroyed most of the
plants. It takes four or five years to
get new plants to the yielding point,
and hence for some years production
has been light. If nothing happens
there should be a crop of some size
next year. ,

METHODS OF MILITARY SIGNALING.
Continental Europe is constantly experimenting ia methods of military sinaliu.
Improvements on old systems or entirely new ideas are snapited up on lirst sight. The
illustration shows the wtjr wagging system, used by France, by which letters aro made
in accordance with the Morse alphabet. Two Hags represent, a dash, one ilajr a dot.
Lanterns are used instead of flags at night. Wigwagging is also employed as a method
of signaling by the military authorities of the United States .
