No Man is Stronger
Than His Stomach A strong man is strong all over. No man can be strong who is suffering from weak stomach with its consequent indigestion, or from some other disease of the stomach and its associated organs, which im pairs digestion and nutrition. For when the stomach is weak or diseased there is a loss of the nutrition contained in food, which is the source of all physical strength. When a man "doesn't feel just right,"/ _______________ when he doesn't sleep well, has an uncomfortable feeling in the stomach after eating, is languid, nervous, irritable apd despond* ent, he is losing the nutrition needed to make strength. Such a man should use Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It cures diseases of the stomach and other organs ot digestion and nutrition. It enriches the blood. Invigorates the liver, strengthens the kidneys, nourishes the nerves, and so GIVES HEALTH HMD STREXGTH TO THE WHOLE BODY.

The town of Dedham is under pro hibition law, apothecaries alone being permitted to sell alcoholic stimulants. The other day a son of the Emerald Isle entered a drug store there, and, taking a bottle from his pocket, asked for a quart of whisky. The salesman asked to what use it was to be put, and the reply was: "To soak roots in it." The order was filled, and the clerk, after handing over the bottle and its contents, inquired, in a conversational manner: "What kind of roots are you going to soak?" Pocketing the bottle, the customer said: "The roots of my tongue, he jabers!" —Argonaut Storyette (1886). Saving His Life. A story is told of an Englishman who had occasion for a doctor while staying in Peking. "Sing Loo, gleatest doctor," said his servant: "he savee my lifee once." "Really?" queried the Englishman. "Yes; me tellible awful," was the re ply; "me callee in another doctor. He givee me medicine; me velly, velly bad. Me callee in another doctor. He come and give me medicine, make me velly, velly badder. Me callee in Sing Loo. He no come. He savee my life." Single Blessedness. Emerson—There's nothing like sin gle blessedness! Waters—What!

Redding, Conn., April 21—Samuel Langhorn Clemens, (Mark Twain), died painlessly at 6:30 o'clock tonight of angina pectoris. He lapsed into coma at 3 o'clock this afternoon and never recovered consciousness. It was the end of a man outworn by grief and acute agony of body. Yesterday was a bad day for thi little knot of anxious watchers at the bedside. For long hours the gray, aquiline features lay moulded in the inertia of death, while late at night Mark Twain passed from stupor into the first natural sleep he had known since he returned from Bermuda and this morning he woke refreshed, even faintly cheerful and in full possessions of all his faculties. He recognized his daughter Clari (Mrs. Ossip Gabrilovitch), spoke a ra tional word or two and feeling him self unequal to conversation, wrote oui in pencil "Give me my glasses.'' They were his last words. Laying them aside he sank first into reverie and later into final unconsciousness. At the deathbed were only Mrs. Ga brilovitch (Clara Clemens), her hus band, Ossip Gabrilovitch, Dr. Robert Halsey, Dr. Quintard, Albert Bigelow Paine, who will write Mark Twain's biography, and the two trained nurs es. Restoratives—digitalis, strychnine and camphor—were administered, but the patient failed to respond. Angina pectoris is a paroxysmal af fection of the chest of baffling and obscure origin, characterized by se vere pain, faintness and deep depres sion of the spirits. The pain is of an oppressive, crushing or stabbing character. The attacks progress in frequency and severity with uncertain intermissions, sometimes of long dur ation to a fatal termination. Mark Twain did not die in anguish Sedatives soothed his pain, hut in his moments of consciousness the mental depression persisted. On the way up from Bermuda he said to Albert Bige low Paine, who had been his constant companion in illness: "This is a bad job; we'll never puli through with it." On shore once more and longing for the serenity of the New England hill, he took heart and said to thos< who noted his enfeeblement in sor row': "Give me a breath of Redding aii once more and this will pass." But it did not pass, and tired ol body and weary of spirit, the old war rior against shams and snobs, said faintly to his nurses: "Why do you fight to keep me alive Two days of life are as good to me as four." Funeral Services Were Simple, New York, April 23.—Services as simple as his wholesome life attended the tributes paid today to Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain) a story writer, humorist, philosopher and citizen of the world. New York City was but the stop ping place in the dead author's Iasi journey, as his body was brought here from his home at Redding, Conn., where he died to be taken to Elmira, N. Y., for burial. But it was here that the chiefest expression was to be found of the loving regard in which Mark Twain was held by the American people and that the fullest opportunity to do his memory honor was afforded. Brick Presbyterian church at Fifth avenue and Thirty-seventh street was the place selected for the funeral ser vices this afternoon, and two close friends of Samuel L. Clemens, In life were the choice to voice the frief of the throng at his death and to speak eulo gies echoed by the heart throbs ol thousands. This honor fell to Rev. Dr. Henrj Van Dyke, formerly pastor of the church and now professor of English literature at Princeton university, and Dr. Jas H. Twitchell of Hartford City, for fi'teen years the author's home. Although the church seats 1,200 per sons it was by no means large enough to contain all who had a desire to see for the last time, the face of Mark Twain. In keeping with the known senti ments of Mr. Clemens, there was nc vocal music and no pallbearers. Two organ selections, brief prayers and a few words of eulogy will constitute the service. After the service the body will be placed on the train and taken to El mira, where a second service, as simple as the first, will be conducted on Sun day afternoon. The burial will be in the Clemens' lot in Elmira cemetery, where Mrs. Clemens and the children of the couple are buried. Within the next ten days a public opportunity will be given for the num bers unable to attend services today to show their respects for Mr. Clemens This will be a memorial service ar ranged by many well known men who cherish memories of year- ol friendship with the author. The pro gramme of this meeting will include brief addresses by the admirers of Clemens' humor and wisdom. LIMBURGER AND THE LAW Odorous Compound Responsible for Some Trouble and a Little Al leged "Wit." "Technically," said Judge Wells to William Rung in the municipal court, j "you had the right on your side. How- j ever, you chose a form of cruel and | unusual punishment that cannot be tolerated by this court. I'll have to fine you one dollar." It appeared from the evidence that Mr. Rung, who is a stereotyper, sat down to luncheon with Edward Snider, a fellow employe. The piece de resist ance of Rung's luncheon consisted of limburger cheese, and Snider, who re gards himself as something of a wag, had made certain remarks about the cheese, reflecting particularly on its odor. Thereupon Mr. Rung smeared a piece of the cheese over the humor ous Snider's countenance. "This," said Rung, as he stepped up to pay his fine, "is the kind of justice that smells to heaven." "That will be about all from you," said the court bailiff; "cheese it!"— Chicago Record-Herald. Up to Papa. "John, I think you would better give Edgar a good whipping." "What's he been doing?"
