Others refer to Peruna as a peat catarrh "which of these people are right ? Is It more proper to call Peruna a catarrh rem edy thaa to call it a tonic ? Our reply is, that Peruna is both a tonic and a catarrh remedy. Indeed, there can be no effectual catarrh remedy that is not also a tonic. In order to thoroughly relieve any ease of catarrh, a remedy must not only have a fpecific actios on the mucous membranes affected by the catarrh, but it must hars a general tonic action on the nervous system. Catarrh, even in persons who are otherwise strong, ii a weakened condition of soma mucous membrane. There must be something to strengthen the circulation, to give tone to the arteries, and to raise the vital forces. Perhaps no vegetable remedy in the world has attracted so much attention from medical writers as HYDRASTIS CANADENSIS. The wonderful efficacy of this herb has been recognized many years, and is growing in its hold upon the medical profession. When Joined with CUBEBS and COPAIBA a trio of medical agents is formed in Peruna which constitutes a specific remedy for catarrh that in the present state of medi cal prowess cannot be improved upon. This action, reinforced by such renowned tonics as COLLINSONIA CANADENSIS, CORYDALIS FORMOSA and CEDRON SEED, ought to make this compound an ideal remedy for catarrh in all its stages and locatio-s in the body. From a theoretical standpoint, therefore, Peruna is beyond criticism. The use of Pernna, confirms this opinion. Numberless testimonials from every quarter of tb earth furnish ample evidence that this judgment is not over enthusiastic. When practical ex perience confirms a well-grounded theory the result is a truth that cannot be shaken. OLD CAPT. CACK'S QUESTION. tomtwhat Pointed, But It Denoted Quick Intelligence. Pierce Jay, the commissioner of banks of Massachusetts, at the Ameri can Bankers' association's convention in St Louis, advocated a better ac counting system. "But above all." said Mr. Jay, In a discussion of his idea, "we want Intelligence, if embezzlement is to be thoroughly put down. Systems are good, but intelligence is better, and in cashiers and tellers and book keepers and note clerks we want the same keen, quick Intelligence that characterized old Capt. Hiram Cack, of Gloucester. "Cack lay very ill. One day he got downhearted, feeling that his case was hopeless. " T fear, doctor,' he said, 'there isn't much hope for me.' " 'Oh, yes, there is,' the doctor an swered. 'Three years ago I was in your condition precisely, and look at me now.' "Cack, Intelligent and alert, said quickly: "'What doctor did you have?'" Safe, Sure and Speedy. No external remedy ever yet de vised has so fully and unquestionably met these three prime conditions as successfully as Alicock's Plasters. They are safe because they contain no deleterious drugs and are manu factured upon scientific principles of medicine. They are sure because nothing goes into them except ingre dients which are exactly adapted to the purposes for which a piaster is re quired. They are speedy in their ac tion because their medicinal qualities go right to their work of relieving pain and restoring the natural and healthy performance of the functions of muscles, nerves and skin. Alicock's Plasters are the original and genuine porous plasters and like most meritorious articles have been extensively Imitated, therefore always make sure and get the genuine. Comment That Stung. The marquis of Lansdown, leader of unionist peers ln the British parlia ment, speaks rarely but always with effect. He revels in grave sarcasm. On one ocasion Lord Crewe, the lib eral leader, made a speech on a subject which he desired to leave a matter for open Toting among his followers. Lord Lansdowne congratulated his friend on his eloquent speech. "I have followed it," he said, j'with earn- ! est attention not only on account of ! the importance of the subject but also ! on account of the noble lord's judicial attitude. I admired his earnestness and eloquence, but what impressed me most was his impartiality." A pause. "Yes,. until the last minute I did not know on which side of the fence his lordship was coming down." Made Much on Small Capital. Twenty-five years ago W. S. Wctham left the town of La Grange, Ga., with the munificent sum of one dollar In his pocket and landed ln New York with nothing to his credit but ' his clothes and his character. The quality of the former does not matter and the quality of the latter has shown itself. He is to-day president of 75 banks, all but four of which are situated in his native state. In return for Georgia's small advance of 100 cents he has pretty well cornered her banking In terests and has In keeping a goodly amount of her funds. The four banks of which he Is president outside of the state of Georgia are Utuated in Flor ida. Surely Had Helped. While the child labor bill was un der discussion ln the senate Mr. Piles said he did not approve of some pro visions in the measure, adding: "Un der the bill as it now stands I would not be permitted to employ my own son in my law office if he were under 14 years of age." "Would you," Sena tor Beveridge Interrupted quickly, "put a son under 14 years of age at work in your office if you desired to train him to be a lawyer?" "I went into my father's office," said Senator Piles with dignity, "at the age of 13." "Did it help?" queried the Indiana senator. "Yes. I am here." Then the sedate senate chuckled. Whine from Henry James. Henry James, pursuing his theme, "The Speech of American Women," speaks of a group of Boston young women, "all articulating as from sore mouths, all mumbling and whining and Tocally limping and shuffling as It were together." He comraree, also to its great disadvantage, a school where parents pay so much not to have their boys taught to speak as gentlemen, with one "beyond the sea, in which the proviso that the schoolmaster hall speak as a gentleman rs so abso lutely -vital."

Travelers through the Syrian desert have seen horses weep from thirst, a mule has been Beeh to cry .from the : pain of an injured loot and camels, I It Is said, shed tears fn streams, says ; a writer ,in Harper's Weekly. ..-A cow I sold by its mistress .who had tended i young soko ape used to -cry from vexa tion If Livingston didn't nurse It ln his arms when it asked him to. j Wounded apes have' died drying, and ' apes have wept over thoir young slain l by hunters. A chimpanzee trained to carry water jugs broke one and fell : a-crylng, which proved sorrow, though it wouldn't mend the juu. Rats, dis-' covering their young drowned, have been moved to tears. A giraffe which a huntsman's rifle had injured began to cry when approached. Sea lions often weep over the loss of their young. Gordon Cummings observed tears trickling down the face of a dy ing elephant. And even an orang outang when deprived of its mango was so vexed that it took to weeping. There is little doubt, therefore, that animals do cry from grief or weep from pain or annoyance. French President's Double. M. Fallleres was until recently be lieved to be the only president of the French republic who had no double, but his counterpart has been found. The man who most resembles him physically is a respectable merchant of the Rue Saint Honore, who plays his part with decorum and dignity. He wears exactly the same kind of blue butterfly necktie with white dots as the president, the same kind of hat and exactly so oddly cut a beard. And on his promenades he is always ac companied by a friend who could eas ily be taken for the president's private secretary. Dignified and with meas ured steps the enviable double walks through the Faubourg Saint Honore and feels overjoyed at being saluted on all sides. Long Lived Parisians. M. Rousse, the oldest member of the Institute of Fiance, who will be 90 years old next May, is prepared to prove by statistics that Paris is the city In which life is prolonged more surely than in any other in the world. There are enough octogenarians in the French capital to form a good-sized town of their own namely, 10,509. As the population of Paris was in 1901 a little over 2,700,000 this gives 389 oc togenarians to every 100,000 inhabi tants. It also appears from the fig ures of the veteran statistician that Paris has 620 nonagenarians, 99 of whom are in their one hundredth year. Mark Twain's Neat Answer. Eugene Ware, of Topeka, recently wrote to Mark Twain: "I picked up your last volume. I read it clear through from cover to cover; It was like a bob-tailed flush. I could not lay It down." From Xo. 21 Fifth avenue. New York city, Mr. Clemens answered back as follows: "Dear Mr. Ware: I am an old brass-bound, copper-riveted, fire-assayed Presbyterian, with 71 years' experience in unworldllness, and I don't understand your meta phor, but I know it was intended as a compliment and I make it cordially NEVER TIRES Of the Food that Restored Her to Health.
