"N-not exactly," said Brown, "but we're going to accomplish the same result without going from home at all." ' "What do you mean?" "Why, it's this way. You gee, when person of my means takes a cottage at the seashore he of course gets a poor sort of shanty, because we can't afford a large, finely finished and well Hrnished house. You know the sort of place the usual summer cottage is. Well, we're deolded to accomplish the result In another way. We're going to move up into the attio for the summer." "Move into the attic?" "Why, certain ly. It is unfinished, just like a seashore cottage. The sun beats down on the shingles and raises the temperature above 100 degrees ereryauns summer day. That's Just like a seashore cottage. There isn't by any means room enough in it for our large family, and that's like a sea shore cottage too. "When it rains, the water doesn't beat through our roof, to be sure, as it does through the roofs of seashore cottages, but we can remedy that by poking a few holes through the shingles here and there and getting the roof mended in the fall. It will smell a little stuffy, but that is eminently like a seashore cot tage. We shall keep a clothesbasket full of unwashed shells standing in the corner to produce a realistic effect. On the whole, we shall be ever so much more comfortable in our own accus tomed garret than we should be at the seaside, and we shall have this inestima ble' advantage that when we get sick of it we can simply move right down into our own comfortable home, where as, if we were at the shore and paying a high price for a cottage, we should feel bound to stick it out to the bitter end. Oh, I tell you, it's a great scheme." Boston Transcript. Million of Valueless Xbnay. Eighty million dollars in bills were re ceived at Atlanta a day or two ago, the mammoth packages of money filling five large dry goods boxes and making in all a drayload. None of the bills was cur rent, however, as they represent "noth ing In God's earth now and naught in the waters below it." They were Con federate bills of the rarest type. The huge pile of genuine Confederate money was snipped from Richmond, the former capital of the Confederacy and is now the property of Charles D. Barker of At lanta. The money is of every denom ination issued by the departed nation, and in the big collection are bills of the rarest type. There are bills issued dur ing every year of the war. Thousands of them are very valuable as relics, but the great number of them Mr. Barker has on hand will make them so common as to bring but little on the market. This $80,000,000 of Confederate money has been all along supposed to have been destroyed. This is undoubtedly the largest lot of Confederate money in the world. Savannah News. Blejrela Sulky Records. The veteran reinsman, Budd Doble, who drove Dexter when ho made his fa mous record years ago and piloted Nan oy Hanks to the wire in 2:04 last season, agrees that thenew records are not to be discounted because made with the pneu matio sulky. "The progress of tracks, sulkies, rig ging and horses is natural," he said. The conditions under which Dexter made his record were far more favorable to speed than prevailed in the day of Flora Temple, and Maud S trotted under still more favorable conditions than Dexter, yet in each case the latter record was ac cepted as standard. Time and ingenuity may bring forth even greater aids to speed than the pres ent bicycle sulky and kite shaped track have proved to be, but they must be ac cepted aa legitimate means of lowering the trotting record. New York Herald. Jewish and Italian Immigration. Mora than one-third of the 63,000 im migrants who landed at this port last month were Italian and Jewish. The in flow of these raoes this year surpasses that of every other year. It is evident that both the Italians and the Jews are pleased with this country, and that those of them who have been here for some time give encouragement to others to come. For a short time the Jews of Rus sia found some trouble in getting passage to thin nnnntrv. enneflia.Uv from Ham burg, but when excluded from German porta they go to Belgian, Dutch, British or Trench ports, where plenty of steam ships are at their service, as can be seen by the arrival of so many of them here every week. New York Sun. - SUtyjht Team of vraddad Ufa. George Gilbert and wife of Gilberts vUia, Montgomery county, were married Nov. 8, iSu, and will celebrate their sixty-eighth marriage anniversary in November next. Mr. Gilbert will be 00 yean of age on Nov. 8, 1893, and his wUewillbe 00 on March 9, 1894. Mr. Gilbert la still quite active and was seen in the field last week mowing and haymaking, but his wife has been bed fast la yean, though her mental facul ties are unimpaired. The couple have had 10 children, eight of whom are liv ing. Cor. Philadelphia Ledger. Good Cm Wot Last Beacon's Ureases. The enormously increased price of woman's gowns, it is claimed by the drmmaken, is due to the portentous alee of the sleeves. Eight yards of silk is reported as the allowance made for these befrilled and bepuffed elements of the gown in Paris, which accounts per haps for the fashion of using a different material for the sleeves. Anyway the women who' are despairingly question tog, "What shall we do with our last season's gowns?' may find here the hap- Sr solution of the question make them to sleeves for this season's dresses. Nearly Dra.n.il h. ii.n.. C Stanley Hurlbut, the well known ??TSTathrUli11 experience on the Schuylkill river during the terrific storm on Wednesday night and had to swim for his life. Mr. Hurlbut is a member of the Malta Boat club, and after office hour on Wednesday started up the river in a sin gle shell to the race course. Here the storm overtook him, and the hailstones perforated the covering of his shell. The craft began to fill with water aud settle It was only by skillful handling that Mr. Hurlbut kept right side up, all the while the hail pelting him in a fusillade. At one time he was in imminent dan ger of losing his life by being run down by the four oared shell of the Pennsyl vania Barge club, which bore down upon him, appearing suddenly through the veil caused by the storm, not 10 yards away.. A blow from the sharp prow of the shell would have been fatal to the oarsman, and Mr. Hurlbut, realiz ing his peril succeeded by a powerful lefhand stroke in throwing his shell out of the line. The boat shot by like a flash and left the oarsman fighting with the waves, which rolled over his boat, causing it to settle at least one foot. He succeeded in getting to the shelter of a pier at Co lumbia bridge, when the shell turned, leaving him in the water. With the craft in tow Mr. Hurlbut started to swim to Belmont landing, where he was assisted by several youug men who had witnessed his exciting struggle. The shell is a wreck. Philadelphia Ledger. Prosperity In Nevada. We would advise the chronic kicker who thinks Nevada fit only for horned toads and rattlesnakes to take a trip through the country and try to find a better place. The farmers on the Truc kee meadows live and dress better than in any other section of the country, have more of the pleasures and comforts of life than any of the farmers in any part of California; they live in better houses, get better prices for their produce and are in every way better off. We hear glowing accounts of the country about Los Angeles, the beautiful orange groves, the immense yield of the land devoted to the cultivation of prunes, but distance lends enchantment to the view. Nevada is just now undergoing a business de pression, owing no doubt to the unsettled condition of the financial question, but we are better off here and have less to growl about than the people in San Fran cisco. Let those who think they have a hard row to hoe dig up their sack and take a trip to other sections of the coast, and we venture the assertion that they will return home better- satisfied "with themselves and this portion of the world at large. Bono (Nev.) Gazette. A Pitiful Scene at a Railroad Avoidant. In the recent railroad accident at New burg, N. Y., one woman Mrs. Elber son of Setauket, N. Y. who was severe ly injured, was taken from the wreck hysterically crying for her baby. She had been traveling with her husband, who was also injured, and Addie, her 8-year-old child. For a few minutes no one could tell her what had become of the little girl. Then the child's dead body was found in the wreck, and hugged closely in her arms was a doll. Mr. El berson heard his child was dead, but he cautioned the men not to tell his wife. Mrs. Elberson, although badly in jured, refused to go to the hospital until she found the child. Then one of the men, counting on her hysterical condi tion, placed in her arms the doll that had been found locked in the child's em brace. Mrs. Elberson took the doll and went to the hospital, believing that she had her child. Labouohoia'i View of the Seal Question. I have always been at one with the United States in respect to the seal con troversy. By international law we are right, by common sense they are right, and when the former conflicts with the latter I am on the side of the latter. Seals are feres naturae, and the United States government weakens its argument by contesting this. Their hapitat Is the open sea, and once a year they betake themselves to American territory in order to bring their progeny into existence. If slaughtered on the way, they would be exterminated in a few years. No one wants this, but if killed in undue numbers when on the territory of the United States this ex termination would equally be the result. Common sense therefore eaya that they ought to be protected while in the sea, as well as protected from excessive de struction while on land. London Truth. Superstition About Itnin.v. u- There is a superstition about un lucky housf. of which the Blaine house in Washington is just now the most notorious example, and which is enough to make a conservative, common sense real estate agent pound his head against the bricks. The proper commercial spirit in which to meet the superstition is em bodied in the sentiment, "Give me good plumbing, and I will risk the luck." But Mr. Hudson thinks it conceivable that the emotions of per sons who suffered unduly in particu lar houses may somehow stick around the premises and bother impression able tenants who come after. He tells of a London lady who hired a house and was straightway seized -with a persistent longing to study art. She did so and became proficient, and did not find out until afterward that the tenant who had preceded her had been an enthusias tic devotee of art.. The same lady hired another house years afterward, but had to leave it because of its de pressing influences. Inquiry brought out the fact that the house had once been occupied by a cruel husband, who had abused his wife and finally abandoned her, and that no tenant had been able to live comfortably in it since.-rHarper's Weekly. A ClrOd Call For a Drummer. "I am SUTO I dfl nnr. lrnV lilro o V,n,. seed," said a commercial traveler to mo yesieraay, "ana yet 1 practically blew out the gas at my hotel last night. "You see, ".he continued, "there are both gas and electric light fix tures in the rooms, and they are close together. Well, I started to turn out the electric light and made a mistake and turned the thumb nimv nt t Via gas burner, opening it, of course. As me eiecinc ugnt aid not go out, I at once saw my mistake and corrected it by turning the electric light but ton, laughing at myself the while. When I got up in the morning, I dis covered that in mv nmnaamanf my error I had forgotten to turn the gas loumo piece deck again, and it had actually been open all night. Think of it I" "What I and you were pot" "Oh, I wasn't asphyxiated. You see, the hotel does not use gas, and there was nothing but air in the pipe. But it was a close call, wasn't it?" Milwaukee Sentinel Minute Mechanical Construction. That minute mechanical construc tion can lay claim to considerable an tiquity is evidenced by the works of Pliny and Adrian, who mlnta tha,t Myrmioides constructed out of ivory a ship with all her appurtenances and a chariot with four wheels and four horses, both so small that a bee could hide either of them with its wings. A still more wonderful work is that of Mark Scaliot, a London lock smith who in 1570 manufactured a lock consisting of 11 different pieces of steel, iron and brass, which, to gether with the key belonging to it, weighed only one grain. The same artist constructed a chain of gold containing 43 links, which he fas tened to the lock and key, and upon these being attached to the neck of a flea the insect was able to draw them with ease. Boston Commonwealth. Look Out For the "Bible Wagon." The first electrio organ to reach this country has arrived at the Boston cus tom house from England. It has been built for St Thomas' church, Taunton. Another curious importation is a "Bible wagon," which has arrived from Glas- ?;ow. It is an elaborate affair, strangely asbioned and bright with varnish and gilding. It is equipped with seats, book racks and a high pulpit, which with its stand is mounted on a swivf and can be "aimed" In any direction. Boston Let ter. Sturgeon Weighing Over a Long Ton. Some fisherf oik the other day captured in Yerik bay, on the Don, a sturgeon weighing 72 poods, or about 8,000 pounds foigHah. The fish was taken, singularly enough, in an ordinary net and without damage to the meshes. A sturgeon of this sice will give about 10 poods of ca viare, having a marketable value of 1,000 rubles.

Wilson, Contractor and Builder, Sulphur Springs, Texas, thus speaks of Ayer's Pills : " Ayer'a Pills are tlie bent ini-di itie I ever tried; and, in my judgment, no better general remedy could be devised.
