My monthly pe riods had ceased and I suffered much pain, [with fainting spells, headache, backache and [bearing-down pains, and I was so weak I Icould hardly keep around.

CURING BRAIN BY PROXY. a I I How Balance of Seat of Reason Can Be Restored. With the surroundings of the brain proper there have been remarkable surgical achievements; some of them in operations performed half a body's length from the disturbed organ. Be tween the brain proper and its lining Is a shaliow sea of fluid which extends all the way down the hollow inside of the spine, around the spinal cord. If this fluid becomes deranged or com pressed the brain is affected. Now, in one part of the head this liquid substance constitutes a little spirit level, .like a 'carpenter's level, which serves to keep the human machine properly balanced. Sometimes the fluid in this level increases beyond the normal capacity. Then the patient is annoyed by constant ringing In the ears and presently becomes subject to severe and dangerous vertigo. This Is because the unconscious sense of balbnce is disturbed. A few years ago the medical faculty were at a loss for a cure. Now they know that the brain fluids may be controlled from the spine. So they tap the vic tim of the deranged spirit level near the base of the spine, draw off the sur plus fluid and send him on his way, relieved, balanced and rejoicing. This lumbar tapping is of Inestimable value in the diagnosing of meningitis, ab scesses and other cerebral diseases: the examination of the fluid drawn from the spine, in fact, affordlngdiag nosls for all brain diseases other than the purely nervous affections.—Mc Clure's Magazine. He Wasn't Worried. The Great. Ice Age came sweeping over the prehistoric world, wafting Its Icy warning from the line of glaciers that were crunching their way over the paleozoic rocks and driving herds of hairy mammoths, glyptodons and other affrighted creatures before them. Just then the prehistoric Paul Re vere came bounding along, mounted on the back of his faithful dinosaur and shouting guttural warnings to the Cave men. "Fly!" he cried. "The glaciers are coming! Run fob your lives or you will surely perish!" "Tut, tut!" said Abou, the Cave man, emerging from his cavern and calmly munching the thigh bone of a mylodon. "Man, are you mad?" cried the hero, rather nettled. "Don't you know that now approaches the Age of Ice?" "Well, so long as it's not the age of Plumbing, the Age of Coal, or the Age of Graft, I care not!" Whereat the prehistoric philosopher retired calmly to his cave and dressed himself in his glad raiment, so that his fossil remains would make a good appearance upon their debut in an American museum a million years later.—New York Sun. a I No Weather There. "I lived among the people of Japan for four years," said the Cincinnati man, "and I pledge you my word that not once in all that time did I hear one single person make any reference to the weather. You can judge what a relief it was. Here and elsewhere the weather Is a constant topic. "Was nothing said when it was hot or cold or stormy?" was asked. "Not a word—not the slightest hint. No matter whether it was pouring rain or the sun was shining, nobody spoke of it. The nearest I ever heard any Japanese trench on the weather was when my valet one day asked me for half a day off. When I hesitated over it he said: " 'Your excellency, I have a toe and I want to get corn on my the-thing fixed before next winter sets In and freezes the-thing off! Conclusive. "Yes, ma'am," said the man with the old valise; "I acknowledge that I used to go trampin' around this neigh borhood, beggin' for cold victuals, but I don't do that any more. I've re formed." "What evidence have I of that?" asked the woman of the house, ' still eyeing him with suspicion.

"Then, years afterward, he had to learn to spell with a pencil. All his spelling talent went into his pencil. His tongue had lost its cunning, and whether standing or sitting he would miss the easiest words, unless he used his pencil. "Finally, with the advent of the typewriter, he was obliged again to learn how to spell, this time with the machine. Queer thing, Isn't it?

Two young mountain eers, proud parents of a lusty young ster, presented themselves before the bishop to have the child christened. The bishop asked: "What name?" The father of the child replied: "Beelzebub." "No?" exclaimed the bishop, amazed that thé Prince of Darkness should be so honored. "No, we'll call the child John. John is a good name." Whereupon he continued rapidly with the "I baptize thee, John—." He signed with the sign of the cross and dismissed the parents. They had become more and more confused under the unwonted solem nity of the unfamiliar ritual. The father stood on one foot, shifting his weight to the other; the mother was equally disturbed. When the two reached the door of the church the father turned, and at last finding his voice, called bfick to ward the rude chancel; "Mister Bishop, dis heah's a gal baby!"—The Sunday Magazine. Lazy.

Galloway points otit that what ap pear to be traces of a primitive state of servitude existed In Staffordshire, where the laborers employed in the haulage of coal continued to be known as "bondsmen"—a name probably coming down from a remote period; a supposition which receives support from a peculiar service required of them, known as "buildases." This consisted in working at times In the morning without receiving any pay ment beyond a drink of ale. This cus tom of exacting labor without pay Is supposed to represent some ancient service required from their tenants by the monks of the Abbey of Build was, in Shropshire, whence the name was derived. l I know that Dodd's Kid Pills are all that is claimed for Manipulation of the Fan.

COFFEE HEART Very Plain in Some People. A great many people go on suffer ing from annoying ailments for a long time before they can get their own consent to give up the indulgence from which their trouble arises. A gentleman in Brooklyn describes his experience as fallows : I became satisfied some months ago that I owed the palpitation of the heart, from which I suffered almost daily, to the use of coffee (I had been a coffee drinker for 30 years), but I found it very hard to give up the bev erage, I realized that I must give up the harmful indulgence in coffee but I felt the necessity for a hot table drink, and as tea is not to my liking, I was at a loss for awhile what to do. "One day I ran across a very sen sible and straightforward is présenta tion of the claims of Postum Food Coffee, and was so impressed thereby that I concluded to give it a trial. My experience with it was unsatisfactory till I learned how It ought to be pre pared—by thorough boiling for not less than 15 or 20 minutes, learned that lesson there Postum Food Coffee proved to be a most palatable and satisfac tory hot beverage, and I have ever since.
