After six long ;,cars ot anxious and un- i,:irln-r search Arthur A. Stcbbins of Alnnlnrller found his daughter livin with her mother In uninviting surround ings at 71 Ituggles street, Boston, and ho took tho child away with Him while she was attending the Hammond street school mi Tnemlav forenoon. She was brought back to Mtintpetler that night and will live with her father, who will give her a, bet let- home and a good education. Mr. Mtnhlihis was accompanied bv Attorney C. il Senter of Montpelier, who managed the search. When Mr. Stcbbins and Mr. Renter went to the school Tuesday morn ing little Alice Stcbbins was not In her scat.

Then her head dropped and he. sobbed "I'apa" and put her arms nrrnnrt his neck and kissed him. Later he asked her why she said she didn't know him.

"Are yon sure yon nan locomotor ataxia?" " The dootora themselves told me ao. Besides I recognised the symptoms." " What were they?" "Well, the first indications were stiffness about the knee joints that came on about four years ago. A few months after that appeared, my walk got to be uncertain, shaky-like. I lost confidence in my power to control the movements of my legs. Once, when I was in the cellar, I started to pick up two scuttles of coal, and my legs gave way suddenly, and I tumbled all iu heap in a basket. I couldn't close ray eyes and keey my. I balance to save my life. Then I had fearful pains over my whole body and X lost control over my kidneys and my bowels." " How about your general health ?" " Sometimes I was so weak that I had to keep my bed and my weight fell off twenty pounds. Things looked pretty bad for me until I ran across a young man who had been cured by Dr. Wil liams' Pink Pills and who advised ma to try them." "Did these pills help you right away?" " I didn't see much improvement un til I had used six boxes. The first bene fit I noticed was a better circulation and a picking up in strength and weight. I gradually got confidence in my ability to direct the movements of my legs, and in the course of seven or eight months all the troubles hod disappeared." " Do you regard yourself as entirely well now?" " I do tho work of a well man at any rate. I can close my eyes and stand up all right and move about the same as other men. The pnins are all gone ex cept an occasional twitch in the calves of my legs." Mr. James H.Watkins resides at No. 73 Westerlo street, Albany, N.Y.

The advance In the price of such property iu the last few years is some thing marvelous, it going by jumps and not steps. Values have advanced by reason of the purchases by wealthy per sons seeking summer homes and who must have ample grounds. In fact real estate in that village now finds a readier sale, nnd a higher price than it will com mand iu the residential section of this village. A Cleveland man who bought property there about a year ago "for whic h he paid $.",000 has recently been offered an advance of JIO.OOO by parties In his own city.

If these figures ,-ne m error, it is probably on tho side ot un derstalcment, yl as they stand they show a larger expenditure for "stiniu hints," both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. both absolutely and relatively lo the population in the year ending with last June, than in any either for which t lie records arc acscsslblc. . The total estimated retail e:st of stimulants for 1!'0..-1!01 Is placed at $1, lrS, (.:2,T1",, or a little mine than Ivvlre the total expfjtidituies of the federal govern ment lor that year. This was ?I!,.33 for every man, woman, and child in tho country. Tea, coffee and cocoa are rep resented by $J.70 ot this, tho remaining $ir.3 having been spent for alcoholic stimulants. Each of these.. Items had In creased In the year by nine cents per capita. If lb" comparison be inside by gallons, to be sure, the use of noii-nlccdiolle bev erages Is found to C'xced eonsldei ably that of the alcnh die. As a peo.de. we drink 20n,eieo,flei0 more gallons nf euffee than we do of bT, itjr ti ne times as many gallons of tea as of wine and spirits combined. Yet tills does not oh-J "cure the surprising fact that in a year whcin the Uritlsh chancellor of the ex chequer explained a detlclencv in ills predicted excise revenues on the ground that his conntiynieu were becoming less addicted to intoxicants the nveiage!

Hut the assertion that mild beverages arc displacing strong can no longer fair ly be made regarding present conelilions. For the list eiaht years, as a matter eif fact, we have been I'onsumlng every year not only absolutely, but relatively, more spirits than the e.-lr before. Prom 1,01 gallons per capita, the lowest figure in our statistical history, which was reached in 1Mi, the consumption has steadily mounted till It Is now LIS gal lons, making an Increase of 41Vi per cent, Uer, in the tamo time, has gam ed nnls IS l-.l per cent., while wines have shown a net pc reuse frr.m . gal lon In IKM to gallon In r.W.

"It Is when we li'.irn all mere anatomi cal considerations and ask the ultimate) questions how does mind affect matter, and how does matter display mind'.' tli.it we realize our nescience. Granted the nervous mechanism I have indicated, wo arc not one whit the better able to answer a question for which our very conception of cause and effect is Inade quate, We cannot conceive though many of ns think wc can ot nn Idea moving :i table, or a table moving an idea. Tho difference between mind and matter is greater, immeasurably greater, than all other differences whatsoever, and our concept of causation Is inade quate to conceive how the one affects the other. Four attempteel solutions I must enumerate. The- idealist easily solves Iho difficulty. There is nothing but mind, of which matter is the crea ture, be says. And as Tlume said of Berkeley, the most consistent and logi cal of all idealists, 'Ills arguments ad mit of nn answer and produce no con viction.' Then there Is Huxley, who ap preciates with all of us the difficulty of understanding how mind can affect mat ter, and therefore denies any such In fluence. Wo are conscious automata, he says, unable to affect or effect anything. consciousness being merely an cpi- phennmenon or by-product, an interest- I spectator not allowed or able to join in the game. Of this theory the difficulty is that It was conceived by a conscious ness, and then disowns its creator and sourc e. For ou will observe that in or der to explain consciousness vve have only the evidence and conclusions eif consciousness to guide us. Similarly a man may try to lift himself by his own collar. The third solution Is that afflict ed in the academic circles of to-day. It admits that mind and matter cannot mutually Interact, and therefore pro claims a psychophysical parallelism: mind ami matter or consciousness and cortex, for this school knows nothing of subconscious mind move in parallel lines, one mental state affecting another, and one neural state another; but tho two lines, 'though produced ever so far,' never meet. Material changes, however. will cease to affect mental states when opium ceases to cause sleep, and music dilght; not before. And, lastly, there Is the explanation of Spinoza and Spen cer, which regards mind and matter as correlated ami Inseparable manifesta tions of tho unknowable, This explana tion will cease to hold the Held when we learn on what other hypothesis an In visible and single cell, which would not cover the point of a lead-pencil, can re ceive certain salts, piotelds, water, nir. and light ami develop into a nervous system with its attendant organs, whence maj proceed an Kroica symphony fir a Hamlet."

Or. drufr POINTED PARAGRAPHS, A pretty clrl can teach a man anything but common sense. Heads of households are tho bill-foot ers of their families. No man over 50 should marry a woman who Isn't a good nurse. A man's mental balance Isn't syn onymous with his bank balance. Marriage of two deaf mutes should ren der them unspeakably happy. It Is a case of intellectual farming when a man's fooling are harrowed. An exclamation of Joy comes 4th when a mother discovers her baby's 1st Ith.

Honest, now, doesn't It tlcklo you to havo other men try on your hat and find It too large for them?
