'Will Volunteer as Nurses.
In case of war with Spain any num
ber of patriotic Lexington j-oung la
dies will take up the cause of freedom
and horns and volunteer as nurses.
The Lexington Argonaut says a young
lady of that city, Saturday, while read
ing the war bulletins in front of the
Argonaut office, declares that if war
was declared she would go as nurse
and do all in her power to whip the
hated Spaniards. This is patriotism
of the right stripe, and the young la
dy will no doubt be jined by other
Blue Grass beauties who will lend
their pleasant countenances in reliev
ing the sufferings of those fighting for
their country and their homes.
A Beautiful Poem.
Read by Eld George Gowen at the
funeral of Miss Minnia West.
IF I SHOULD DIE TONIGHT.
II I should die tonight
My friends would look upon my quiet face
Before they laid It it its last resting place,
And deem that death had left it almost fair
And, laying sno -white flowers against my hair,
Would smooth It down with tearful tenderness,
And fold my hands with lingering caress
Poor hands, so empty and so cold to-night;
If I should die tonight
My friends would call to mind with loving
thought.
Some kindly deed that my icy hands had
wrought,
Some gentle word the frozen lips had said;
Errands on which the willing feet had sped;
The memory of my selfishness and pride,
My hasty words, would all be put aside,
And I should be lov d to-night.
If I should die to-night
Even hearts estranged would turn once more
to me.
Recalling other days remorsefully.
The eyes that chill me with averted glance
Would look upon me as of yore, perchance,
And soften, In the old familiar way;
For who could war with dumb, nnconcions
clay?
So I might rest, forgiven of all, to-night.
Oh, friends, I pray to-night,
Keep not your kisses for de id, cold brow;
The way is lonely. let me feel them now.
Think gently of me; I am travel-wor.i;
My faltering feet are pierced with many a
thorn;
Forgive, ob, hearts estranged, forgive, I plead;
When dreamless rest Is mine, I snail not need
The tendernesa for which I long to-aight.

WHO IS CUPID.
Story of the Mischievous Boy AVho Plays
with Hearts.
1. Cupid or Amor is the Roman name
of the God of Love.
2. Cupii is represented as the son of
Venus and his father either Mars, Jup
iter or Mercury, and pictured as a
beautiful winged boy bearing a bow
and arrows.
3. Cupid's power over all animated
nature is described often as riding on
the backs of lions and other wild
beasts which he has tamed. He often
appears blindfold and bearing a bow
and quiver full of arrows.
4. Psyche, the youngest of the three
daughters of a king, it is said, aroused
by her bjauty the jealousy of Venus,
Cupid's moter. Venus, as a punish
ment, ordered Cupid to inspire Psyche
with a love for the most contemtible
of mortals. Cupid, however, when he
met Ps3che fell in love with her at
once. Psyche's sisters persuaded her
that Cupid, whom she had never seen
except at night, was a hideous mon
ster. And at night she arose and look
ed upon Cupid and to her delight saw
tha most lovely 01 faces, but a drop of
oil fell from her lamp and awoke Cu
pid. She fled and arrived at the palace
of Venus, who kept her as a slave.
l or her urntle obedience and silent
attention Venus consented to Psyche
becoming united to Cupid. Leisure

the , many dangerous ailments
which are so prevalent during
summer? Impurities have been
accumulating in the blood all
winter, and right now ia the time
to get rid of them. A thorough
course of Swift's Specific is needed
to cleanse the blood and puri
fy the system, toning up and
strengthening it all over. Those
who take this precaution now are
comparatively safe all summer;
but to neglect it is to invite some
form of sickness which is so com
mon during the trying hot season.
It is now that a course of Swift's
Specific

will accomplish so much toward
rendering the system capable of
resisting the evil influences which
are so liable to attack it during
the summer when sickness is so
abundant. It is the best tonic
and system-builder on the market,
because it ia a real blood remedy
and is made solely to search out
and remove all impurities, and

Not Always Understood.
A fact often overlooked, or not al
ways understood, ia that women suffer
as much from distressing kidney and
bladder troubles as the men. ihe
womb is situated back of and very close
to the bladder, and for that reason any
distress, disease or inconvenience man
ifested in the kidneys, back, bladder
or urinary passage is often, by mistake,
attributed to female weakness or womb
trouble of some sort.
The error is easily made and may be
as easily avoided by setting urine aside
for twenty-four hours ; a sediment or
settling is evidence that your kidneys
and bladder need doctoring. If you
have pain or dull aching in tbe back,
pass water too frequently, or scanty
supply, with smarting or burning,
these are also convincing proofs of
kidney trouble. If you have doctored
without benebt, try Dr. .Kilmers
Swamp-Hoot, the great kidney remedy.
