the beginning of fall so ciety begins coming back to the Riviera. But not un til January chills the north ern cities do fortune's favorites arrive in full force. Nature made this strip of coastline beautiful and money has made it luxurious. The journey here from Genoa is a sightseeing tour, through the attractive, exclusive territory of the idle rich. Not once does the rail road get away from sight of the sea, and when Porto Maurlzio and San Remo are reached, it runs where you can see best these pleasant Italian winter resorts. Night fell before we Arrived at Mentone and the tiny prin cipality of Monaco. Though the moon, at full quarter, shone resplendent on land and water, it had a formidable rival in the lights of Monte Carlo. It was as if a shower of incandescent gleams had fallen upon the promon tory and where they fell thickest and were red in color, stood the casino. Next day I explored it. Nice, agreeable in climate, pleas ant with wooded walks and pretty villas, claims most attention because of its handsome shops. Paris bids for poor patrons, as well as rich but Nice merchants disdain to cater to else but the tastes and pockets of fashion and wealth. According to them, others have no business to be In the Riviera. On the outskirts cf the city, where land is not villa grounds, it is covered with acres of flowers, cultivated by the peasants to furnish table decorations for the palatial hotels and the homes of win ter patrons. Along the famous Cornice road the electric tram carries visitors from Nice to Monte Carlo, a distance of about fifteen miles. It is a delightful route, edging the irregular coast and passing elegant villas named after I $ favorite characters of poetry and mythology. Over high stone walla hang floral draperies, creeping gerani ums, now a mass of lovely pink and again gorgeous with riotous crimson bloom. 'men Monaco comes in view, a bold promontory washed by the heaving Ligurian sea. On a conspicuous point looking westward is the palace of the Prince of Monaco, whose principality is the smallest, as it is the richest, in Europe, if measured by the amount of cash handled there daily. Though .'no one associates churches with I I Monaco, nevertheless even more prom inent in situation than the palace Is the ancient double-towered cathedral. Down the slope from Monaco, al ways skirting closely the sea, then up a second hill, and I was at Monte Carlo sufficiently earfcr in the after noon to visit the gardens and walk around the casino. They are charm ing, but, go where you will, can be seen the large banking house of the Credit Lyonaise, which hints of other sights than fragrant blossoms, cool breezes and blue sky. I wanted to eee Monte Carlo by gaslight, so $ loitered outside until the magic hour of the gambler's day. Not that fre quenUrc of Monte Carlo wait until I night to try their luck many begin at tun o'clock in the morning and quit only when they must, at midnight. In exchange for my visiting card I received a blue ticket and the entree of the casino. First I wandered into a handsome ball, long and spacious, with a gallery where, in the height of the season, an orchestra plays. Into this hall come men and women to do some thinking and reckoning or to stroll up and down with a friend while congratulations or condolences, as the case may be, are extended. On a level with the gallery are reading and writing-rooms, pleasant apart ments. And now I was in the gambling sa lons, great, lofty rooms with Watteau like mural decorations, but totally de void of draperies or any softening touch. Down the center and sides stood long tables, around which were seated jnen and women. Immense chandeliers turned night into day, revealing clearly every face watching intently the green-covered tables strewn with gold and silver. There was almost silence, except for the dis tinct voice of the banker at each table, who announced the winning numbers. And what gambler who had staked his money would miss by idle chatter hearing what that momentous voice said? Seven tables were in use. Later in the season many more will be brought into requisition. One salon was entirely vacant. Nevertheless, over 200 gamblers were playing. From table to table I went and saw the fas cinating game of chance played by young manhood and womanhood, by men and women in their maturity, and by white-haired and toothless old age. They were habitual players, and showed no emotion whether the long white wooden crook of the banker pushed a pile of gold to them or drew it away. At a table where not less than Ave dollars in gold, can be played, a pleas ant-faced woman sat, and back of her stood her pretty, dainty daughter, holding a pile of gold pieces. Twice the woman won, but the third time lost. Then I saw a few words ex changed. The mother moved as if to 9B rise, but the pretty, hopeful daughtei pressed her down into the chair and slipped another gold piece into her hand. Again and again I noticed a figure which, I was told, is always and at all times to be seen at the casino—a short, stubby form dressed in gray. At first glance I thought it to be a man. Coat, vest, collar, tie, black derby hat, with straight gray hair drawn up tightly beneath the stiff rim, and, small black mustache any man might be proud of—only the skirt told the sex. The face was in telligent, but unlovely. A little longer I lingered in the house of gold. Then the continued clink of coin, the intense faces of the gamblers, the cold, metallic voices of the bankers calling the results, grew distasteful and I gladly sought the perfumed garden flooded with soft moonlight.

A prominent medical man, who suf fered with a severe cough and cold on the lungs, often being kept awake all night, and weakened by loss of sleep, finally discovered a simple formula which will cure any cough in five hours by the clock. It is a lax ative tonic cough syrup which can be made at home by anyone and the formula is here given for the benefit of those who pass sleepless nights in painful paroxysms. Those who have tried it say it is magical and beats any high-priced, slow-acting cough medicine ever sold. Mix in a bottle one-half ounce fluid wild cherry bark, one ounce compound essence cardiol and three ounces syrup white pine compound. Take twenty drops every half hour for four hours. Then take one-half to one tea spoonful three or four times a day. Give children less according to age. This will tone up and rid the system of deep-seated coughs every time. A Pessimistic View. Among the patients in a certain hos pital of Harrisburg there was recently one disposed to take a dark view of his chances for recovery. "Cheer up, old man!" admonished the youthful medico attached to the ward wherein the patient lay. "Your symptoms are identical with those of my own case four years ago. I was just as sick as you are. Look at me now!" The patient ran his eyes over the physician's stalwart frame. "What doctor did you have?" he finally asked, feebly.—Illustrated Sunday Magazine. For Celestials. I once visited a very rough boom town in Oregon, near Cottage Grove. In the leading saloon a man in a red shirt said to me: "Ye wanter carry yerself almighty straight In these parts, stranger. Go wrong the least mite and, by crinus, we'll lynch yeas quick as look at ye." I smiled. "Would you lynch me," I asked, "if I killed a dog?" "Would we?" he snorted. "Why, stranger, we've lynched fellers here for killin' Chinamen!" Where Are Harry and Isabella Allen? Harry Is now aged 20 years, and his sister, Isabella, aged 18 years. The children were taken in charge by the Nebraska Children's Home society in 1897 from Grand Island, following the death of the father, Silas Allen. The mother is now in Oklahoma, and is distracted because she cannot locate her children, whom she has not seen since they were taken by superintend ent of the society twelve years ago, who now refuses to tell their mother where they are. If the children will address P. O. Box 898, Omaha, Nebr., giving their own address, it will be sent to their mother. Her Mistake. A lady overtook a little girl of her acquaintance on her way to school. "Do you like decimals, my dear?" she asked. Now the little girl had not gone very far in her arithmetic and she was unfamiliar with the word deci mals. She shrank from acknowledg ing her ignorance, so, after a minute, she stammered: "Yes'm, I like them pretty well, but not as well as peaches." Cruel. "Isn't that a good joke? It's my own."

Bloomer of Yale uni versity, acting as spokesman for an anonymous giver, has announced that a prize of $100,000 has been set aside, to be awarded to the first person any where in the world who discovers a cure for tuberculosis." The gift is un conditional as to time, place, or kind of cure, the only real condition being that the new cure must have been in constant use at least five years, and that the promoter of the cure con vince the investigating board of the merits of his discovery. A large number of physicians have been working for years to perfect vac cine, or anti-toxin for tuberculosis, or to find some agent, such as tuberculin, which will assist in the cure of the dis ease. Thus far, the experiments have not furnished a product which will either absolutely cure or prevent con sumption, or render the patient im mune against the disease. Many of these serums have proved effective in increasing the resistance of the pa tient and thus helping in the cure, but no scientist of repute to-day claims to have discovered a tuberculin which will produce a cure without the com bined aid of fresh air, rest and whole some food.
