A remedy for asthma would be hailed by thousands as the greatest possi ble boon that could be offered them. There is a remedy for asthma. Dr. J. C.

Second Sale of His Work—The Little Quaker Boy Who Became a Rich and Famous Han—He Was Born In Penn sylvania. • & . ôfWlâWB m M « YOU fH (Philadelphia Letter.) URPRISINO and singularly interest ing is the an nouncement receiv ed from London of a sale by Messrs. Christie, Manson & Woods, the well known English auctioneers, under instruction of the representatives of second president of the Royal Acade my, who died in 1820, of "the collection of pictures and remaining works of Benjamin West." The sale in itself is probably not of extraordinary artistic interest, since West's most ambitious productions have long been permanent ly placed; yet the fact that seventy eight years after the painter's death there remains a collection of his pic tures sufficiently important to be of fered at public sale will direct attention to and revive interest in the remark able career of the painter who, al though American born, by the incom prehensible revolutions of fortune's wheel attained to the post of the high est official distinction in English art— the presidency of the Royal Academy; who was born in a humble farm house not fifteen miles from Philadelphia, yet whose earthly remains were depos ited with reverential pomp in a cathe dral tomb—in St. Paul's—beside Sir Joshua Reynold and Sir Christopher Wren. Especially interesting is the announcement to Philadelphians,where West first established himself as a por trait painter, and where are now to be found his best works, those which at the first sale of the "unequaled collec tion of historical pictures and other admired compositions, the works of the £2 to C-3 ■te i - 6; t 7 BENJAMIN WEST IN OLD AGE revered and highly gifted painter, Ben jamin West, Esq.," which was held at the deceased president's house in Lon don in 1829,bringing the highest prices. The "Paul and Barnabas" now hang ing over the main stairway of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, and which was originally painted as one of the decorations of King George III.'s intended chapel at Windsor Cas tle, Is said to have brought £360; "Death on the Pale Horse," the gigan tic canvas which transfixes the eye of the visitor as he enters the Academy, brought £2,000; and "Christ Rejected," West's masterpiece, also owned by the Academy, brought £3,000. These are remarkable prices. Still another of West's famous pictures, "Christ Heal ing the Sick," now hangs in the Penn sylvania Hospital. The original pic ture was purchased by the directors of the British Institution for £3,000. This the artist copied, making a few changes, and presented a copy to Phil adelphia in 1802. The career of Ben jamin West is the first and greatest ro mance of American art. As of the lives of many great men sprung from humble origin, a great deal of tradition surrounds West's early years, so much so that It is hard to separate fact from fancy. Some very remarkable stories are related of the strong predilection for art manifested by Benjamin while still a prattling child. Some biogra phers claim that he began to draw the family portraits at six; others say at seven. Gait, who bequeathed to pos terity a Life of .West, compiled from materials furnished by himself, is pro fuse In anecdotal reminiscences relat ing to the childhood of West, which, whether they be accepted as authori tative or not, make extremely interest ing reading. A copy of this book, quaintly bound and time stained, pub lished in Philadelphia in 1816, informs us that the branch of the West family to which the artist belonged was de scended from the Lord Delaware who distinguished himself in the wars of Edward III, and particularly under the Black Prince, at the battle of Cressy. About the year 1667 the West family embraced the tenets of Quakers. Col. James West, the friend and companion In arms of the patriot Hampden, is said <o have been the first proselyte of the family. The Wests emigrated to Am erica in 1699. Thirty -nine years later —in 1738 —Benjamin West was born In what was then the neighboring county of Chester, near Springfield, whioh Thomas Pearson, his maternal grand father, so named because a large spring of water was discovered in the first field he cleared for cultivation. The house In whioh Benjamin West first saw the light still stands close by the gray walled structure of Pennsylvania's Quaker college at Swarthmore. It Is a quaint, curious relic of primitive do mestic architecture of 1724; in appear ance unobtrusive and serene, well be fitting the dwelling place of the Friend, surrounded by plenteous evidences of the pastoral beauty which attuned the young eyes of the Quaker painter to an early delight in the observation of nature. Now the groves of Academus are peopled with youthful figures, capped and gowned. Once among the trees, on summer days, gathered the friendly Red Men. The little weather beaten biography informs us that It was the Indians who taught Benjamin West to prepare the red and yellow col ors with which they painted their orn aments. To these his mother added blue, by giving him a piece of indigo; thus he secured the three primary col ors. His first brush, we are assured, flowers around the West home, was followed by the present of a box of paints and several engravings. This precious gift was an inspiration. At night he placed the box on a chair by his bedside and often did he stretch out his hand in the darkness, half fearful that he might find his riches only a dream. The next morning he rose at daybreak, and carrying his colors to the garret, proceeded to work. The time he should have spent in school he stole for painting. The schoolmas ter, observing his absence, sent to ask the cause of it. This led to the dis covery of his secret occupation. His mother, proceeding to the garret, found the truant; but so surprised and de lighted was she at the picture which was improvised from the tapering fur of the family cat's tail. The brush did not last long. A further supply, how ever, was secured by successive depre dations upon Grimalkin's back. These became so frequent that his father no ticed the altered appearance of pussy's coat, and became grievously vexed at the disease whioh threatened to mar her beauty. Thereupon Benjamin con fessed. It was soon after the boy had first begun to indulge his imitative faculties that the visit of a relative, who be came interested in the drawings and confronted her that she gladly forgave him. He had made, not a mere copy, but a new composition of his own from two of the engravings which he had colored from his intuitive feeling for the right tints. Sixty-seven years aft erwards the picture hung in the same room with the painting, "Christ Re jected," and West, it is said, declared that there were inventive touches of art In his juvenile essay which in none of his subsequent efforts he had been able to excel. Young West was Bent to Philadelphia to school, where he had the advantage of the excellent in struction of Doctor Smith, the provost of the college, who was a fine classical scholar, and who influenced the mind of his youthful disciple in the classical bent noticeable in after time. There was little in the creed of the Friends auspicious to the fine arts; consequent ly when West returned to Springfield at the age of 16 the question of his future vocation was solemnly weighed in family council, and a meeting of the m v-> - WEST'S BIRTHPLACE. Society of Friends was called to dis cuss publicly the destiny of the boy. It was an extraordinary gathering which convened in the meeting house near Springfield. West's biographer, in de scribing the scene, speaks of much de bate, approaching to altercation, fol lowing which a man, John Williamson by name, rose and delivered a remark able speech which convinced the as sembly that the youth should be an ar tist. A private meeting of Friends was appointed, which was held at his fath er's house. Benjamin was present to receive in form the assent and blessing of the socièty. Several were moved by the spirit to address the meeting. John Williamson spoke again. Then the women arose, kissed the young artist, and the men, one hy one, laid their hands on his head and prayed that "the Lord might verify in his life the value of the gift which had Induced them, in despite of their religious tenets, to allow him to cultivate the faculties of' his genius." West spent about three years travel ing through Italy, everywhere meeting with distinguished attention. Florence, Bologna and Parma electing him an academician. His continental studies completed, he settled permanently in London in 1763. Success smiled upon him, and In two> years he was able to marry Elizabeth Shewe'l, to whom he had plighled his troth before leaving America. One of the most romantic of the stories told about West is concerned with Ills courtship. Whether it has little or any foundation in fact is disputed. Its authenticity Is extremely doubtful, but it is worth relating how, partly for the reason that a portrait of Benjamin West and also a portrait of his wife both hang in the permanent galleries of the Academy of the Fine Arts, and because Matthew Pratt, the man who accompanied the father of Benjamin West and West's future wife to London in 1764, and took part in West's wed ding, was the man who painted the. portraits. House 8et on Fire by a Poultice. Fire insurance companies have all sorts of experiences, and their officers, can tell many curious stories. One of the queerest fires fell within the busi ness of the Connecticut Fire Insurance' company of this city, recently. A house was set on fire by a bathtub, and the bathtub was set on fire by a poul tice. A man in a western city was suf fering from a bad cold, and his wife, at the doctor's orders, prepared a poul tice for his chest. When she started to put It on it proved too hot. Ac cordingly, she took it to the bathroom and set It into the bathtub to cool. This happened to be a fine tub lined with celluloid, which served as a Bort of enamel. The heat of the poultice started the celluloid a-going, and the burning tub set things going general ly. The department was called out, and the house was well wet down, for which the company had to pay. This, so far as known, is the first Instance on record where a bathtub set a house on fire or where a poultice kindled a. bathtub.—Hartford Courant. Yearning for Hprlng.

Dumb-waiters are being fitted with reflecting mirrors for use in ascertain ing the contents of the car before it Is raised or lowered, the mirrors being set at angles in the shaft and tilted by a projecting member on the waiter to adjust them. For use in the sick room a new table has been designed, consisting of a clamping bracket for attachment to the side of the bed, with an extenBlon rod above it, carrying a side arm which projects over the bed and holds a tray in position for use. A western woman has designed &. skirt for cyclers which can also be used as a walking skirt, a row of but tons and buttonholes being placed at the front and rear which can be opened to form a divided skirt for riding, and buttoned the entire length for walking. A handy ash-slfter recently placed on the market has a horizontal rod set in a casing on which a sifter is mount ed to be shaken by a handle extending to the outside of the casing, the device being made up of several hinged sec tions, which can be opened to remove* the sieve and ash receiver. In a new baby carriage the side« and ends of the body are formed of small metal strips pivoted together at tho ends to fold up, with the bottom and truck made in sections, which are hing ed together, the whole carriage being contained in a space about as larga across as the wheels when it ie folded.

Russell, national su perintendent of the American Anti-Sa loon League, $1,700 wert pledged to the work of the temperance union. The plan of work adopted contemplates placing three state organizers in the field during the year. In addition to these, it Is expected that Dr. Russell j and two of his most valuable assistants will spend all of April In the state. The outlook Is good for a great tem- [ perance revival during the present year. Mrs. Mary H. Hunt, national super- | lntendent of scientific temperance in struction, has been urgently invited to 1 go to Japan and extend her work of scientific temperance education in the j public schools of that country.

Mr. | Hamao, former president of the Im- | perlai university, now holds that office and Is most desirous of introducing western methods and teaching.

Mrs. Hunt's work In her own home field Is so overwhelming that it will be Impossible for her to go tbls year, at least. linngering After Christ, "Blessed are they which hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall bs filled.—Matt. vl. 8. The soul's true hunger and thirBt can only be satisfied with that which flows out of the deepest fountains of ever lasting love. But this i« a mighty river, out of which the hearts of be lievers have drapk since the beginning of the world. The longing look after Jesus contains the gllnmertog of faith. It may be mingled wKh much weak ness, and the sighing of the soul may be, "Lord, help us, we perish," but let us cherish this feeling, so that out of H may grow a power which wind and sea will not be able to extinguish. A great stream is composed of little drops, and a strong faith grows out of secret longings and desires after Christ. A magnet can move a piece of iron as eaetly as a small needle; both hang upon It, for the power does not come from the greatness or the smallnesa of the iron, but from the stone. Thus, the weakest faith is a fruit of the Holy Spirit, as well as the strongest, for It does not depend on our strength or on our weakness, but on Christ.—Chris tian Scrlverv FAST TIME TO CHICAGO VI» Rio Grande Western Rallwny.

They are bearlag a burden In silence that grows heavier day by day ; that is sapping their vitality and cloud ing their happiness. Mrs. Alexander B. Clark, of 417Mlchlgan Avenue, Detroit, is a typical woman of to day. A wife with such ambition as only a loving wife can have. But the joys of her life were marred by the existence of disease. Buffering as thousands of her sisters have suffered, she almost despaired of life aad yet she was cured. " For five years I suffered with ovarian trouble," is Mrs." Clark's own version of the story. "I was not free one single day from headache and intense twitch ing pains in my nock and shoulders. For months at a time I w'juld be confined to my bed. At times Mack spots would appear before my T . .„ . even aud I wonld be- * became blind, come blind. My nerves were in sneh state that a step on tue floor unsettled me. "Eminent doctors, skillful nurses, the beet food and medicine all failed. Then I con sented to an operation. That, too, failed and they said another was necessary. After the second I was worse than ever and the world was darker than before. "It was then I heard of Dr. William»' Pink Pills for Pale People. I heard that they bad cured caseB like mine and I tried tbem. "They cured me! They brought sun shine to my life and filled mv cup with hap piness. The headache is gone: the twitch ing is gone; the nervousness is gone; the trembling has ceased, and I have gained twenty-six pounds. Health and strength is mine and 1 am thankful to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for l'aie People for the blessing." Tliese pills are a boon to womankind. Acting directly on tlie blood and nerves, they restore the requisite vitality to all parts of the body; creating functional regularity and perfect harmony throughout the ner vous system.
