]ill a bottle or common water glass with
urine and let it stand twenty-four hours; a
sediment or settling indicates a diseased con
dition of the kidneys. When Eurine stains

Too frequent desire to urinate or pain in the
back is also convincing proof that the kid

BIGGEST GRAVE MONUMENT.
Daniel Moriarity Starts a 375*Tonner fo;
His First Wife.
Daniel Moriarity, a retired New Or
leans grocer, now living in Alameda
County, California, is a happy man at
last, or nearly happy, for after visit
ing all the quarries and cemeteries in
the United States, he has found peo
ple willing to fulfill the desire of his
heart, and he will soon be the owner of
the largest graveyard monument in the
country, and probably the largest in
the world. It will weigh 750,000 lbs.,
and when everything has been paid for
it will have cost over $50,000.
The monument is not for himself,
however. It is to be erected in honor
of his first wife, to whom he says his
present affluence is due, and after her,
in honor 9f his father, Joseph Moriari
ty, who died in New Orleans in 1858.
His first wife Ihas been dead eighteen
years, and Mr. Moriarity has taken
unto himself another and moved to the
Pacific coast. He came to America
when a boy, and got into the grocery
business. His boss was a widow, Mary
Farrel by name, who fell in love with
him and took him into partnership for

SALTING DOWN MUTTON BIRDS
FOR AUSTRALIAN MIARKETS.
Great Quantities of the Edible Sea
Fowls Are Packed in B.trrels
for Shlminent Like Pork
Where They are Found.
ASTES differ in different lati
tudes, even among English
speaking people. Imagine
Caucasians dining on salted
petrels, and with a relish, too, as
though that fish-eating sea bird were
a luxury. Of all the fowl that haunt
the barren islands on the Califernia
coast none are considered quite so
worthless as the sooty petrel. Even
the seagull has his usefulness as a
scavenger on the bays along the coast,
but the pretrel is truly a despised bird
in these waters. Seagulls' eggs bring
a price in the. market that make it
worth while to gather them at consid
erable expense, but no one thinks it
worth while to rob' the petrels' nests
on the rookeries at the Farallone isl
It is different in Australia. Is it the
cold winds that blow up from the Ant
arctic regions or the hot air that
sweeps down from the equator? No
matter what the cause, the fact is that
the appetites of our Australian cousins
are radically different. The sooty
petrel is there an edible fowl with a
decided market value, and a number
of men and small craft are employed
each year in catching, salting, pack
ing and carrying it in great quantities
from the rookeries on Trefoil Island
and other adjoining islands on the

Mutton birds is the general name
given the petrel there, and the men
and ships engaged in the business are
known as "mutton birdere." To
Americans this is quite a novel indus

sea birds as the petrel are packed and
salted down like eo much pork is
always a matter of wonderment to
strangers who go there. But the test

the old and scratching new
nests on the Farallone Islands. Here
the birds are practically unmolested,
and it may thus be said, with some
basis in reason, that the California
coast is supplying the Australian
coasters with their edible sea fowl. It
is true, of course, that the petrel finds
other quiet nesting places besides the
islands off the California coast, but it
is also true that Catalina, the Santa
Barbara channel islands, and the Far
allones are their chief rookeries on
this coast, and that at certain seasons
these islands are entirely deserted by
them, while the islands off' Tasmania
and the southern coast of Australia
then swarm with them. -San Frandisco
A Strange Power.
It is a curious thing, the power
which some human beings have over
animals. There is in Lowell 'a boy,
differing in no respect from his com.
panions, who has the power in a marked
degree. Every stray dog or oat in the
neighborhood knows him and loves to
be his companion. A vicious horse,
which the stablemen can with difficulty
handle, will stand like a lamb while he
harnesses and unharnesses him. The
doves fly around him and in the woods
the wild birds apparently regard him
as a friend and ally.
The most remarkable exhibition of
his power, which has long been knowr
and commented on by his friends, was
given the other day. A large and
vicious rat was captured in the stable
in one of those traps which permit of
easy ingress and no egress. The men
who were looking at the animaliwere
were afraid to go near the trap, the
animal showed such terror, but the
boy, when he beheld the imprisoned
creature, fearlessly put out his finger,
stroked its head, the rat manifesting
as much pleastfre as would a cat or a
dog. Several days have passed since
then, but the stablemen are still afraid
of their capture, but he has grown sc
tame and familiar with the boy as to
allow him to take him out and put him
in the trap, will come at his whistle
and manifests every appearance of joy
at his presence. There seems to be no
question that the boy could train that
rat to perform almost any feat within
the power of such an animal,--Lowell
The London Lancet has deemed the
subject of lamp explosions of sufficient
importance to deserve the attention of
the authorities, and there are some
hints as to the kind and care of lamps
that are worthy of attention. At the
same time, it is a remarkable fact that
while lamp accidents are frequent,
there arm comparatively few fatalities
resulting therefrom. It is also stated
that the quality of the lamps is very
much inferior to the quality-of the oil.
Indeed, it seems to matter but little
what the lamp is or how imperfectly it
is constructed. .It is a lamp, and if it
is a cheap one, every other considera
ticn is lost sight of. Lamps may be
bought for twenty-five cents, and are
taken into the houses of the pur
chasers, and filled and lighted with no
concern whatever as to their safety, if,
indeed, that subject is ever thought of.
It would be an excellept idea if there
could be some offloial inspection of
lamps, and, if possible, an oversight
of the oil supplied to families. Were
this done, many lives and much prop
erty might be saved.

*--The Talk of the
From the News, Lowell, Mass.
Mr. Hiram Spaulding, who was for many
years the proprietor of the Massapong
House. a Boston summer resort, is undoubt
edly'as well known as any man in Middlesex
County. Mr. Spau'ding, beslies having been
a popular hotel man, boasts of being a lineal
descendant of John Spaulding. a well known
soldier who was killed in action with the
Indians while serving in the command of
the famous Captain John Tyng in 1804. He
also is well known as the first leader of the
Celebrated Dunstable Cornet Band, of Dun

"mountel band." Altogether Bandmaster
Spaullting is perhaps the best known citizen
In town, and respected everywhere for his
uprightness and sterling character.
Mrs. Nellie A. Spaulding is the wife of this
gentleman, and almost as well known as her
popular husband. A recent severe illness
from overwork and malaria caused grave
fears among her numerous acquaintances,
and the local physicians seemed powerless
to aid her. Chills and fever, impaired
action of heart and liver, and general wreich
edness were her portion, until her attention
was called to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pa!e People, and she began touse them. On
Labor Day. Monday, Sept. 7, 1896, Mrs.
Spajulding finished the first boxof Pink Pills,
and she informed the News reporter that on
that day she performed one of the hardest
day's work ever accomplished by her. She
is still taking Pink Pills according to direc
tions, and all traces of malarial poison seem
to have vanished.
"No one was more astonished at myrecov.
ery than my husband and my neighbors,
and they are not surprised," said she, ''to
find in me such a champion of what is des
tinol to become a household medicine, the
precious Pink Pills."
At the request of Mrs. Spaulding, the
News reporter called on several persons in
the town of Dunstable, all highlyrespectable
ladies of prominence in the community; he
found them using "Pink Pills" with good
results, and after a fair trial will (so they
thought) be ready to add their testimonials
to that of Mrs. Spaulding as to their medle
nal and curative worth, especially in chronic
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain, in a con

give new life and richness to the blood and
restore shattered nerves. They are an un

plixions, all forms of weakness either in
