Here ?re The Facts Judge For Yourself. Busybodies who see in success only falsity, who, without making an effort to inform themselves, blatantly cry offense against honesty and truth--seen to forget that a slur against Dr. Pierce's well-known non-alcoholic family remedies is a slur against the intelligence of thousands of clear-thinking American women who know they have been helped and cured by Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It is not a "palent medicine'" in the true meaning of the word-it is simply the favorite remedy which Dr. Pierce used in an extended practice fuir the treatment of the diseases of women.

Neighbors advised Cuticiura, and be fore 1 had used half of the cake of soap and box of ointment the sores had all healed, and my little one's skin was as clear as a new-born babe's.

In the neighborhood of he town ot Malcolm in Australia t'he\-e is a gold mine which has been worked for sev eral years by one single family, con sisting of father and rtother, two girls and six boys. The net profits of this mine amounted last year to $75,000. The advice of a great American millionaire on the subject of borrow ing is to the point. He say.s: "Never borrow unless you can see your way to make the principal, the interest, and an excellent profit." The things we get for nothing are generally worth exactly what they cost. The best things in this life are hinged on a hope. An English medical journai has is sued a health warning against relig ious revivals. You know many things that you never had occasion to realize.

"Dice seems to have a fancy for fives," said a clerk in a cigar store. "We get sets of them frequently thatr show many more fives than any other number. We call it running to five(s. The players seem to know this, and they nearly always select fives when they begin to roll. I have never sec n the dlice show partiality for any num ber other than fives, and I do not on (itrstand why this is. It is a fact, however. "The five and six side s of a dice should be the least frequently thrown. for they are lighter, having more holes, but this does not seem to make any diff( rence. The fives keep on coming just the same. "Of con lre, if one numtber shows oftnert than alother it m ans that the (lice are not piroplerly made; but it does seem curious that thlis irreg! larily should always make the five +ide come Iii) instead o(f some other. Since I have been here we have had a runltber of sets of (cice that ran to fi\ves. "Another peculiar thing is that nine men out of ten who roll the dice in this game clhoose fives or sixes. It is the irarest thing that any one takes one of the smaller numlters. It may be superstition. lut if so almost all men are sulperstiticus, for they will have nothing to do witr aces or twos. And those who win almost always Swin with the larger numbers. Fives are the favorite, and are selected most often."-Louisville Courier Jour. nal. At the Captain's Table. As the liner cleared the heads and the heavy swell of the opetn Atlantic became pnoticealle, dinner was served. The twenty-six places at the captain's table were filled and as the so;up ap peared the captain addressed his table companions. "I trust that all twenty-five of you will have a pleasant trip," he said, "and that this little assemblage of twenty-four will reach port much ben efited by the \oyage. 1 look upon the twenty-two smiling faces as a father upon his family, for I am responsible for the lives ot this group of nineteen. I hope all fourteen of you will join me later in drinking to a merry trip. I believe we seven fellow passengers are admirably suited to each other, and I applaud the judgment which chose from the passenger list these three persons for my table. You and I, my dear sir, are--" The captain chuckled. "Here, stew ird, bring on my fish, and clear away these dishes."-Puck. Why Women Never ce. Tho wilom n.

Postmaster General Cortelyou is one of the finest amateur puinists in the country. Indeed, at one period in his life he seriously considered making music his profession. Whenever the cares of his office have proved unusu ally heavy he goes to his den and sits down at the piano in the dark. Mrs. Cortelyou knows when he is beginning to forget his official troubles, for then he ceases the minor strains with which he always begins and passes to more lively music, generally finishing with a triumphant march. Mr. Cortel you finds the same stimclus and r-e freshment in music that other men find in drink, drugs or long walks. Princess cf Wales as Art Patron. The most regular visitor to the art galleries of London is the Princess of W\ales, who mikes a point of seeing all the proprietary exhibitions as well as the "one man" shows. The prin cess takes a genuine personal delight in these little visits, which are made as much for her own pleasure as for the sake of giving encouragement to the native artists. As a general rule her highness makes purchases of wa ter-colors for the adornment of her own homes and she is a constant pa tron of several miniaturists, who have produced for her quite a large number of portraits of her own children.
