interesting. One of the leading met

some facts in connection with one of
the largest mercantile establishments
in the United States, the National
Cloak and Suit Co., located at 119
and 128 West 22rd street, New
York City- This Company makes ladies'
5000 Letters a Day.
Some of the details in connection
suits, skirts and cloaks to order only
and employs over one thousand peo
pie. A lady in any part of the United
States can write to them for their
Catalogue and samples, wnich are
sent free, and they will make any
garment which she may select, and
ship it express prepaid to any section
of this country. The mail of this
Company frequently runs as high as
five thousand letters in a single day.
In fact, so enormous has been the
growth of their ousiness that they
have recently had occasion to rent a
new building in addition to the large
quarters which they already occupy.
The company lias a capital stock of
one million dollars, and is one of the
most reliable and trustworthy con
cerns of the kind in existence.

sliould tell you what a wonderful ef
feet Chamberlain's cough remedy lias
produced. The day befors Easter I

cough that I did not think to be able
to take any duties the next day, aa
my yoice was almost choked by Hie
cough. The same d-'y I received an
order from you for a bottle of your
Cough Remedy. 1 at once procured
a sample bottle and tood about three
do9es of the medicine. So my great
relief the cough and cold had
pletely disappeared and I wag able
to preach three times on Easter Day.
I know that this rapid and effective
cure wiie due toyourCough Remedy.
I make this testimonial without so
licitation, being tbanktul for having
found such a Godsent remedy.

Unable to Determine Whether
In a contract He Is "Party
of the First Part, Second
part, or any part at all.
Mark Twain and Harper & Brothers
recently signed a contract whereby
the Harpers have acquired exclusive
rights of publication in all present
and future hooks of the great humo
rist, including his projected Authobi
ography. "After an experience ofj
thirty-seven years," said Mark Twain
in speaking of the new contract,
have come to the conclusion that the
only way an author can make money
is to keep all his books in one pub
lishing house." Americans generally
who have patriotic pride in Mark
Twain and the cheerful manner in
which he has met many financial
changes, will be glad to hear him say
that the arrangement assures to him !
and his family a competency for life. I
In a farewell talk, prior to his de
parture for Italy, where he went for
the benefit of his wife's health,
Mark said apropos of this new arrange
"For three or four weeks, now I
have been borthering over this con
tract, full of strange things about
the party of the first part and the
party of the second part, and I have
never yet been able to make out whea
ther I was the party of the first part
the party of the second part,*or any
party at all. Through all these
four weeks work ray respect for the
Divine Creator has grown week by
week, because while it took us a
month to create a contract, he creat
ed the world in only six days.
I have found this dealing with, law
yers an expensive undertaking. It
has cost me four umbrellas already,
to say nothing of the onslaught upon
my morals. I have done nothing hut
buy umbrellas and leave them in my
lawyer's office. The other day I stop
ped at one of the umbrella counters
in a big downtown office building,
where there were three piles of
umbrellas. One pile was marked $1,
the second pile $2, and th? third pile
was marked $2. I did not look be
yond the third pile because this con
tract was not yet signed, and I was
not certain how much money I could
afford to spend. I said to the man
in charge of the umbrellas,'I am a
stranger from west of theilissiasippi,
all unused to the effete ways of the
East. I came from the wild and
hoping West, and I appeal to you as a
man to man, whether, in your judg
ment, you being an Eastern man, and
I a stranger on his first visit to your
great city, you would advise me to
buy this $1 umbrella for $1, the $2
umbrella for $2 or the $8 umbrella
for $3? I ask you this as a pilgrim
and a stranger.' And the man looking
me straight in the eye, said: 'As man
, ,. ,
to man ' and 9 P eakmg heart to heart
t0 you ' a 9tran « e ''' 1 woul J a,lvUd
you to buy the umbrella. —Mr.
"Which shows that a man with a
past can't get awav from it—even if
he has become honest enough to buy
his own umbrellas. That is the
trouble with me I can't fool anybody,
I am too pure, too innocent. Every
body takes advantage of my innocence.
It is a mighty good thing I was not
born a girl
"I am going aboard, and may never
see my fellow Americans again in this
life, and I hope, for their sake not
in the next!"
