MAHCII SJbd, 1888. S
There has been a decided improve
ment in both the demand fur city
property and in sales this week. The

ment which gives over 760.000 srallont

JuveryDoay is now satisiica tnat the
water boom has something substan
tial in it. The certainty of the Grand
Trunk and the actual revival of the
Aransas Pass will, if our citizens will
only work together, give us a good,

An Albany physician, says a con
temporary, declares that Americans
suffer moro generally from Bright'
diseaso and nervous diseases than
any other people, and he says
tho reason is that Americans sit
down so persistingly at their work.
Ho says: "Americans are tho great
est sitters I over know. Whilo Eng
lishmen, Germans and Frenchmen
walk and exercise, an American busi
ness man will go to his office, take his
scat in his chair and sit thcro all day
without giving any relief to the ten
sion of tho muscles of the back. The
result is that theso muscles surround
ing tho kidneys becomo soft and
flabby. They loso their vitality. The
kidneys themselves soon becomo weak
and debilitated. If Americans would
exercise more, if they would stand at
their desks rather than sit, wo would
bear less of Bright's diseaso. I know
of a New York man who hod suffered
forsomo years, from nervous prostra
tion until it was recommended to him
that ho have a desk at which ho could
stand to do his work. Within a year
he was onoof tho healthiest men you
oversaw. His dyspepsia and kidney
troublo hod disappeared, and he had an
appetite liko a paver." Scientific

The highest prico that was ever paid
for old and raro stamDS was naiu re
cently to a resident of Denver by the
Bcotiotamp ana inn company 01 now
York. Tho stamps wero (no first issue
of the two cent, live cent and thirteen
cent numerals of tho Hawaiian or
Sandwich Islands. They were known
as tho missionary stamps and were
issued about 1830. Thcro are only two
other specimens known to bo extant
and theso were found on somo old letters
and saved as curiosities by tho finder
till, the New York dealers, hearing of
tho find, offered first $50 for tho three,
but gradually raised the prico,. finally
offering $600 for the three, taking
them at that price. The stamps were
at once sold by them to a wealthy col
lector for $850. Denver Republican,

You often seo two ladies together
on the street or in the theatre dressed
exactly alike, as the casual observer
would suppose. But if you will look
closely you will find that while their
dresses and cloaks may not vary in
the least in cut, color or material, their
hats do. No two hats of exactly tho
Bame style and decoration were ever
turned out by a milliner. By this I
mean, of course, trimmed hats. Any
ono who doubts the assertion can easily
be convinced. Take somo matinee
aftornoon and watch tho army of la
dies as thoy enter the theatre. Exam
ine tho headgear carefully, and it will
bo found that no two of tho number
I havo trimmed hats exactly alike. S.

Sunday night, whilo tho snow and
wind storm was at its height, a Blin
man street lady was awakened by a
buzzing sound in her cars, und was
startled by a far off voico repeating in
melodious tonesi "Wake up I" "Get'
upl" Tho lady obeyed tho fitrango
summons, and was terribly frightened
on discovering that tho houso was on
flro. Tho soot in the old fashioned fire
place in tho kitchen, which was over ',
u foot deep, was burning, and the f
flames were shooting out through tho
fireboard. Tho lady soon aroused tho
household and tho flro was extin
guished beforo any serious damage
was done. Tbtt the warning, was given
no ono who' knows the lady will
doubt, and but for the warning- it is
probable that tho house and some
of tho occupants would have ..been
