HUNTING FOR SPOOKS.
Running ghosts toenrth, tackling
spirits, seizing apparitions by tlie
till-out, nailing haUucin.it ions, peering
into haunted houses and boarding
|)ool»s in tlioir dens, experimenting
with thought transference and mes
merism. and in general monkeying
with nil the unfathomable mysteries
of the human soul, tliia is tho uniijue
occupation of a body of learned men,
called the American Society for Psy

On January 1, 18S6, .it 10 A.M.,
Mrs. a lady living in a western
town, writes to a member of Congress,
the husband of her daughter,in Wash
ington. l)r. Hodgson has seen the
original letter. This letter explains a
telegram which Mrs. T—— had sent,
only three hours before, inquiring
about her daughter's health. Tim
original of this telegram lias also been
seen by Dr. Hodgson. The telegram
reads:
Ti the 1 Ton. llciuae of Ki !VH T1
tatives, W.-j.^biNutan, ]. 1 can. Will
fume it Null needs 1110.
The signature is the mother's name.
Alls. T.'s letter of explanat ion first,
says that, she had IK en lor some days
anxious about her daughter Nellie's
health, although there had been no
illness of late. Letters from Washing
Ion hud been lacking for some days
the last one had reported the daugh
ter as having just lettirned from mak
ing fifteen calls, "very tired and near
ly Iro/en." "I waked," said Mrs. T.,
la.sl night between 12 and .I. o'clock,
deeply impressed with the feeling that
Nell needed me. I wanted to get up
and send a telegram. If I had con
sulted or followed my own inclina
tions, 1 would have ilrcssed and gone
down to the sitting-room." Later,
however, Mrs. T. went to sleep again,
but 111 the morning tiie vivid impres
sion returned. At 7 a. m. Mrs. T.
sent the telegram and wrote appar
ently before she received an answer,for
in the margin of the letter she added
the lost script: "felagram here thank
toothless you are
Weil."
The lady in
Washington wiiose mother had had
*0 yivid an experience had been
H'l'iousiy ill the same nii-lit,
although the mottling had found her
much better. 1 ler attack was a very
Midden one, which she described as
neuralgia, of the lungs, with a hard
chill. "It must have been," she says,
"about the hour mentioned in my
mother's letter I at last exclaimed,
'Oh, don't I wish ma was here! I
shall send for her to-morrow if I .am
not better.' In the morning came
the telegram troiu the West, but the
patient was better, and she and her
husband were puzzled at her mother's
uneasiness and replied by telegraph,
"We are all well what is the matter
with yon?"
sin- KKI.T AM rniKii's PAIN.
An old gent lemau living at Albany
had been ill for months. His married
daughter resided at Worcester. O110
evening last summer, she suddenly
laid down tiie book she was rea.ding
and said to her husband: "I believe
father is dying." She was strangely
overcome by the impression, as there
had been nothing whatever in the con
versation or in her own thoughts to
lead to the subject of her father's
health. All that evening and tiie next
morning the feeling haunted her, un
til a despatch came saying that her
lather had died the evening before.
A liOWell physician was called to
see a patient about, 10 o'clock one
niuht. It was extremely dark, and i'
alighting from his conveyaneeheniade
a misstep and sprained his ankle
severely. His wife, who was at home,
in bed, asleep, .suddenly awoke with
the vivid impression that an accident
had occurred to her husband. She
arose, wakened the servant and com
municated her fears to her. Nothing
could induce her to r&urn to bed. At.
I o'clock the doctor returned, and it
was found that the moment of his ac
cident and of his wife's awaking were
simultaneous. He was three miles
away from home at the time.
Here is a narrative, vouched for iv
the highest authority, of experience"
in a house some miles from the city of
Worcester. The man who sends it in
is a well-known manufacturer, and
his word is as good as his bond,
which would be honored anywhere for
$100,000. He writes:
"In relating what I saw on .Inly
morning in 188IS at my house,which I
had but recently purchased,! will first
describe the room in which I saw it.
It is a bedroom, with a window at
either end, a door and a fireplace at
opposite sides. The room is in the
upper story of a two-story house,said
to have been built before the revolu
tion. Tiie walls are unusually thick
and the roof high,pointed and uneven.
The occupants at the time I sneak of
were my brother Heury, myself and a
servant woman. The latter slept in
a room on tiie basement story. A
hallway divided my brother's room
from mine. On the night before the
morning mentioned I had locked my
door, and, having undressed and put
out my light, I fell into a sound dream
less sleep. I awakened about :i
o'clock iu the morning with my face
to the front window. Opening my
eyes, I saw right before me
the figure of a woman, stooping down
und apparently looking at me. Her
head and shoulders wrapped
in a common, gray woolen shawl. Her
ariiw were folded and wrapped in lie
shawl. 1 looked at her in my horror
and dared not cry out lest I might
move the awful thing to speech or
action. 1 lay and looked and felt as
if I should lo-iu my reason, iiehind
her head I saw the window and the
growing dawn, the looking glass and
Hie toilet table and the furniture in
that part
01
tiie room.
"Aftir what may have been ou!v a
few seconds-of the duration ni ihh
vision I can not judge—she ruis her
elf ami went backward toward the
window, stood at the toilet table and
vmished. I mean shegrew by degrees
transparent, and that through the
shawl and the gray dress she wore I
saw the white muslin of the table
cover auain, and at last saw only
that in the place where she stood.
or hours I lay as I had lain on first.
tvalieniug, not daring
even to
turn
my eyes, lest on the other side of the
bed I might sec her again. Now,
there is one thing of which I could
take my oath, and that is that. I did
not mention this circumstance either
to my brother, or to our servant, or
to any one else.
Tilt SI'OOK SKKN AGAIN.
"Exactly a fortnight afterward,
when sitting at breakfast, 1 noticed
that my brother seemed out of sorts
and did not eat. On my asking if any
thing was the matter, he replied: 'No,
but I've had a horrible nightmare.
Indeed,' he went on, 'it was 110
nightmare. 1 saw it early this morn
inii, just as distinctly as I .«ce yon.1
'What?' I asked. 'A villainous-look
ing ha !,' he answered, 'with her head
and arms wrapped in a gray shawl,
stooping over me and looking like
this—.' Ho got. up folded his armsand
put himself in lie posture I remembered
so well, lie then described how the
figure moved toward the door and
disappeared. 'Her malevolent face
11 nd "her posture struck terror to my
soul.' he said.
"A year later, in the month of July,
one evening about 7 o'clock, my sec
ond oldest sister and her two little
children, who were vHiting us, were
tiie only folks at home. The eldest
child, a boy of iiyears, wanted adrink
of water, and on leaving the dining
room to fetch it my sister desired the
children to remain there till her re
turn, she leaving the door open. Com
ing bar' as quickly 11s possible, she
met the boy, pale and trembling, on
his way to her, and asked why he had
left the room. 'Oh,' he said, 'who is
that woman?' 'Where?' she asked.
•The old woman who went up -:ai
1'.-,'
he answered. !»he tried to convince
him that there iv.i* 110 one else in the
house, but lie was so imitated and so
eaaerto prove it that she took his
trembling haul in hers and brought
him upstairs, and went from one
room to another, he searching behind
curtains and under beds, stili main
taining that a women did go up the
I airs. My sister rightly thought that
the mere fact of a woman ioing up
stairs in house where she was a
stranger would not account for the
child's terror.
"A neighbor of ours started when
we first told him what we had seen,
and asked if we had never heard that
a woman had been murdered in that
house many years previous to our
purchase of it. He said it had the
reputation of being haunted. This
was the first intimation we had of the
fact. Nothing more was heard of the
ghost ot the murdered woman, how
ever, for two years.
"On the night of July 7, 1S8U, I was
wakened from a sound sleep by some
one speaking close to me. I turned
round, saying: 'Kmily, what, is it?'
thinking that my sister, who slept in
the room next to mine, had come in.
I saw plainly tiie tigure of a woman
who deliberately and silently moved
away toward the door, which re
mained shut, as I had left it.
"Two days after this occurrence I
was wakened atiout o'clock in the
morning by a presentiment of ap
proaching evil. opened my eyes and
distinctly saw the form of a darkly
clad, elderly female bendinz over me
with folded arms, and glaring at me
with tiie most intense malignity. I
tried to scream, and struggled to
withdraw myself from her, when she
slowly ami silently receded backward
and seemed to vanish through the
bedroom door."—Philadelphia Press.
A Vast Catastrophe.
Chinese newspapers and private let
ters from Pekin bring details of the
overflow 01 the Yellow River in Sep
tember of last year. This event was
dismissed with the notice of a few
lines by most American newspapers,
so little do we know of the real condi
tion of our brothers 011 the other side
of the globe. Yet 110 c.astrophe so
vast has occurred in the world during
this century. As it is liable to recur
at future times, a brief description of
its cause and elTects may be of inter
est:
The Hoang-Iio or Yellow Uiver,
drains the great basin of North China,
as the Mississippi does the Central
States oi the I'nion. It bears a singu
lar likeness to our own great river in
several particulars, chief of which is
tiie crookedness of its course, its sud
den huge serpentine bends.
It drains like the Mississippi, hill
ranges of great fertility, carrying their
rich alluvial soil to the delta at its
mouth. This rish silt, or mud, as in
the case of tiie Mississippi, chokes up
its mouths, until the river is forced to
ooze its way through innumerable
bayoux to the sea.
I11 both rivers the spring rains and
lie melting of the snow 011 the moun
tains near its source produce sudden
devasting floods. The water disre
gards its crooked channel, and rushes
staight across plantation,villages and
cities.
The Chinese, like the people among
the Mississippi, have found it neces
sary to build ramparts on either sidt
of the murderous river to protece
them from its tury but the Chinese
began this work nearly three thous
and years ago. As the increasing de
posit oi silt near its mouth closes
them, the water islorce.l back into
its bed, and rises higher than the sur
rounding country each year, necessi
tating higher "levees."
Ten times since B. C. 1200 the vast
Hood has broken through these bar
riers, and found a new way for itself
to the sea. In 1852 ati outbreak oc
curred, and the mighty Hood went
back to tin cpamiel through which it
llowed when our Saviour was 011 the
earth. Kach outburst is necessarily
accompanied by enormous loss of life
and destruction of property.
On the20th of last September a cre
vasse broke the dyke, and a body of
wilier five hundred miles long,seventy
leet deep and a mile wide burst upon
the plain. This plain—a territory of
ten thousand square miles, occupied
by over three thousand villages—was
submerged. The destruction of
human life is estimated at five mil
lions. None of the water has yet
reached tiie sea it forms a vast lake
of death where last summer was
fertile, populous plain.
The Chinese Government has given
nearly three million dollars, besides
the annual revenue from a great
province, to rebuild the dykes, and a
population equal to that of oAr Mid
dle States is swarming now like ants
about the banks of the huge current,
trying to put a curb upon it, knowing
that it is a curb which, at
some
future
time, it will surely break through
again.
What Becomes of Antlers,
It has been observed that in a dis
trict where several thousand deer are
kept, and where, consequently, there
must be hundreds of stags who every
year cast oil a couple of horns each,
only now and then is a specimen ol
these horns met with. The author of
"Forays Among Salmon and Deer
accounts for tills fact upon the au
thority ot one
familiar with tiie habits
of the animal.
They either bury their horns, or
destroy them with their teeth. He
says that he lias himself seen deer at
the period of spring, when they cast
their horns, tramping them down in
the moist soil ot the peat-bogs which
are so numerous among the hills.
That they were so employed he has
abundant proof, for more than once,
after thus disturbing the deer, he has
gone to the spot and discovered tiie
remains of horns half-buried and
broken up, tho fragments having tiie
in irks of teeth upon them.
Though it may be thought that the
horns are of
a
substance too hard
FARM AND HOME.
Brief Agricultural Points.
Good roads are tiie most obvious
marks of advanced civilization, and
are essential to general prosperity.
The I'nitcd States, on an average,
raises n.ore bu.' hels of corn each year
than there are persons in the world.
Recently a special egg train of twen
ty-four cars passed over tho Grand
Trunis railroad to New York. The
total number of eggs was ovc HI,
000,000.
Pinch the tops of your raspberries
and blackberries early, and servo the
side shoots tiie saine way early and
often to make a compact bush. If
you wait to head back later the
strength of the vine, which has been
thrown into the top, is all wasted,
and you have fewer fruit spurs.
Senator Palmer has a lake on his
Michigan farm stocked with carp, and
wishes he hadn't. He calls them the
"hog of the sea." because they wallow
and burrow in the mud and keep the
water continually dirty. He has tri
ed to seine them out, but he cannot
do so.
If your soil bo light or sandy, sow
rye rather than wheat. Properly pre
pared, rye straw sells well, and there
is always a demand for the grain.
Ground wood ashes, or a mixture of
finely ground bone and pot ash salts
have, it is said, proved the best of fer
tilizers for the rye crop. It is better
to sow seed rye before the 20th of Oc
tober.
In looking into the qualifications of
an applicant for work 011 the farm,
one of the first points for investiga
tion—after his moral character in its
relation to the children—is, "The Na
tional Stockman" thinks, his experi
ence and trustworthiness in handling
the horses.
The disease called mange is the re
sult of filth, and having hogs sleep 111
rotten, dirty straw. It is an insect,
very minute, which burrows under the
skin. To cure it give the pigs first a
good washing 111 warm soapsuds, us
ing carbolic acid soap, and selecting a
warm, dry day. Then grease tho skin
with lard, to which lias been added a
little coal oil, and clean out the pen
and quarters.
Mr. W. D. Hoard, referring to tho
"Snide Creamery Husiness" profita
bly conducted by perspns who go
around inducing'farmers to subscribe
$5,000 to $7,000 for a creamery
which should not cost over 8
1,500 to
S2,01
ID,declares that theit victims are
among the ill-informed. "Ignorance
as to real dairy truth is counted 011
by the sharper as nine-tenths of his
capital stock in trade."
A Immune correspondent shares the
comforts of animals well cared for
lie takes great pleasure this cold sea
son attending to their wants, while
the rude wind just tlie othersideoftho
window enhances the sense of satis
faction by force of contrast. This is
an agricultural compensation not al
ways taken into account, and which
in many intances perhaps theie is not
capacity to appreciate at its true
value.
J. A. Woodward, of The Farm
Journal, mentions an instance of suc
cessful use by a friend of potatoes and
bran for horses, instead of the usual
allowance of grain: "Tiie ration was
half a peck of raw potatoes and two
quarts of bran twice a day, to which
was added a small quantity of clover
hay. They were as fat and sleek as
moles. They carried us live miles in
fifty minutes through stiff muddy
roads, ond when we drove up to the
station they were as cool as cucum
bers."
Col. Weld says, in the "Flower
Pot," that the farmer who does not
know enough not to kill or sell to a
butcher, a calf that will make a 20
quart cow, needs to take lessons of
somebody in the a-b-c of his business.
Such a man has probably several
Cows 111 his herd, which never give ov
er ten or twelve quarts of milk, and,
very likely, poor at that.
Professor J. P. Stelle reminds farm
ers whose lands need fertilizing that
they waste money by neglect to utilize
every bit of refuse likely to have any
value, "mechanical or otherwise."
"It is wonderful what a quantity of
manure may begot together by those
who keep this fact always before
them."
Contagious Diseases.
Of the many ways in which conta
gious diseases are communicated Irom
one horse to another, "The National
Stockman" mentions the following as
perhaps most common:
"Watering from the same public
trough along tiie roadside and feeding
from the same boxes and mangers
at hotel and livery stables tho hitch
ing-rackg in villages and towns
throughout the country are also good
places for the interchange, and to
these alone can much of the troub
le be traced. Without thinking, horses
aie allowed to stand with heads to
gether for hours at the village store,
or in the wagon-yard in large towns,
and yet some will wonder where their
horses caught the distemper or some
other disease that may bo worse.
The careful horseman keeps watch for
such matters, and saves himself much
trouble and expense, and sometimes
tho lives of valuable horses."
Sold, To Keep Store.
tor
this, yet the jaws of tiie deer are so
very powerful. Another considera
tion wiiich makes this more probable
is that scarcely ever are the horns of
a young stag discovered, being, ol
tourse, from their size, more easy of
destruction than the antlers of a full
grown one.
A suggestive account is given in
"The Connecticut Farmer," of two
residents of Harwington, in that
state, who have, contrary to their
hopes anil wishes, joined the ever
growing army ot witnesses against the
folly of turning tho back on agricul
ture for business in town:
"Mr. Catan niado a great deal ot
money on his farm formerly, hut he
sold it three years ago, with all his
live stock, wagons, farm implements
and personal property outside of the
house, for $0,000 and has been run
ning a etoro in Uridgeport, and we
hear that in so short a time lie lias
sunk all he liiul saved and all the
money he received from Mr. Jameson,
some S2,a00, also, with interest on
tho balance, and now gets his farm
back at about $13,700 without any
personal property or live stock and
finds his farm sadly run down into
tiie bargain. He now admits that it
would have been better if he had
stayed on tho tarm."
Interest Your Men.
Here is a scrap of combined ex peri'
ence and counsel that every farmer
can afTord to sitdowuand think over
I have found with the class of men I
have employed thus far, that to make
them thoroughly familiar with the
plans for the season's work in all their
details has invariably proved baiefi
cial inasmuch as they are anticipating
each crop in its turn and tiie different
modes of culture and treatment, and
they often become as much interested
in the operation and success of the
crop as yourself. You need never fear
of losing casteorinlluence among your
men by confiding details of your oper
ations and prospective crops, provid
ed you execute and carry out the pro
gramme mapped out.
Note (1) that this implies a consist
ent plan of operations and the ability
to state the reason for pursuing thi
course rather than some other one.
The man who wrote it was a market
gardener—T. F. Uaker, in Orchard
and Garden—a bright mau in a
bright paper—but the princi
ple is applicable to general agriculture
as well. Note (2) that men like to
learn. They are interested because
the intellectual element Is added to
lift the manual labor above mere ma
chine work. Note (3) that the em
ployer gets tiie benefit of this in
creasefrinterest. His work is done
intelligently. The men know why
they are working in a certain way.
Not I) that this is the way to get
skilled tarm labor. It is a practical
school for the laborer, and makes
him more valuable to others, more
cajiable—makes his labor worth
more money. Note (5) that if this is
a proper and profitable way to treat
a hired man, how much more is it tho
farmer's duty to take his children—
his hoys, and his girls, too—into his
confidence, making them activo
partners in the concern, with a full
knowledge of what is doing and why it
is done.
What Can be Eaten From the Fin
gers.
Although it is considered vulgar to
be seen picking a bone, well-bred peo
ple ofttn take the lego! a little bird
in tiie fingers and delicately remove
the flesh with the teeth. It is not gen
erally done, but itcun be done neatly.
Cheese can be eaten from the fingers,
and so with all the fruits a very dry
little tart or a cake can be eaten with
the fingers. Asparagus is also con
veyed to the mouth with the fingers.
Many English gentlemen eat lettuce
and celeiy, with salt alone, with the
fingers. Olives are also eaten in the
same way. Pastry, hard tee cream,
jellies, blanc-mange, puddings are eat
en with the fork. The dessert-spoon
is only used for soft custards and pre
served fruit,.or melons, wiiich are too
soft for tho fork. When strawberries
are .served with the stem on they
should be eaten with the fingers when
served hulled and creamed they
should, of course, be eaten with a
spoon.
For an Invalid's Head Rest.
The small, soft, eider-stuffed cush
ions, in melon form, either in sections
of two-colored plushes,brioche fashion,
or in soft Indian silk, are most ac
ceptable. They are so soft and mov
able that they seem to fit into the
head whichever way it turns. Sofa
cushions'of the usual square shape
are now occasionally of three colors,
mid made to look as if an extra cover
was put on, with one corner turned
iiack to show the real cushion inside.
Tiie cushion is of one color,the corner
lining of another, and the simulated
inner cover ot a third. Old cold,crim
son, and deep peacock, or brown,pink
and gray are good harmonizing colors.
Plush usually forms tho chief mate
rial, with satin for the linings, but
sateen or soft Pongee silk is also used.
Pongee silk has achieved a wonderful
popularity for decorative purposes,
and linings to bags, sachets, Ac. Very
pretty cushions of brocade or plush,
and also the dantiest of tea cosies,are
decorated with a length of contrasting
Pongee silk cut to look like a little
curtail:, and drawn across one side
with a silken cord, with pompon.3.
Tiie cushions are only so arranged on
one side, but the cosies have the scari
carried light across the top slantwise,
so that, 011 each side, it is to the right
edge.
Cood Advice.
Marion Harland,winding up a coup
le of columns of good advice to girls,
puts this plain but excellent talk in
be
the final paragraph: "To make one
self conspicuous by open contempt of
conventional and, in the main, whole
some social laws is the lirst degree of
the descending scale. To be 'fast,'
•loud,' 'high,' 'fly' (how many synon
yms our national slang dictionary
offers for the next slide!) is so nearly
and dangerously allied to culpable in
discretion that the slandormongers,
belonging as they do, to tho imnres
sionist school,' seldom pause to" dis
criminate between them. They never
halt to distinguish actual imprudence
from positive—and remediless—rnfa
ii.y." Girls may be loud and coarse
without being bad, but the best way
is to take 110 chances. The quiet,
modest girl can never be mistaken for
anything but what she is.
Some Simple Remedies.
For a sore throat, cut slices of
fat, boneless bacon, pepper thickly
and tie around the throat with a
flannel cloth.
When stung by a bee or a wasp,
make a paste of common earth and
water, put 011 tho place at once and
cover with cloth.
For a cold on tho chest, a flannel
rag rung out in boiling water and
sprinkled with turpentine, laid on the
chest gives the greatest relief.
When a felon first begins to make
its appearance, take a lemon, cut off
one end, put thu linger in, and tiie
longer it is kept there the better.
For a cough, boil one ounce of flax
jeed in a pint of water, strain and add
a little honey, one ounce of rock can
dy, and the juice of three lemons mix
and boil well. Drink as hot as possi
ble.
Often after cooking a meal a person
will feel tired and have no appetite
for tins beat a raw egg until light, stir
in a little milk and sugar, and season
with nutmeg. Drink half an hour be
foro eating.
A Royal Grandmother.
There is one good tiling about Quedta
Victoria wiiich apparently escapes the
notice of her radical detractors. She
is a most considerate grandmother.
Now I would like to bo shown in all
the IJueen's dominions another old
lady with thirty-seven grandchildren
who would make herself as uncom
fortable by traveling about with a lull
nursery. Grandmammas are prover
bially devoted to their first grandchild,
but they grow weary after a time
when their children's offspring ceases
to be a novelty. But Victoria is nover
tired of her posterity. She lugs them
back and forth from one end ol her
kingdom to tho other, and actually
takes the latest editions ot the Bat
tenbergs along when she goes up for a
drawing-room at Buckingham Palace.
It strikes tlio.se of us who are not
born in the purple that transporting
the llattenberg infantry with its ap
propriate luggage to London for only
two days' visit at this variable sea
son of the year was an uncalled for
proceeding. No doubt "Miss Mcliat
tenberg" had the sntillles, and "Mas
ter McHattenberg," who is yet in peti
coat s, indulged in an attack of the
croup, but the Queen probably
thought it wouldn't do to leave these
precious youngsters to the care of
servants at Windsor Castle, and so
she packed them oft with her own
elaborate retinue and looked after
tlieni herself! The Empress of India
may lie a selfish old woman as regards
her subjects or the comfort of her
household, but when it comes down
to a royal baby she is right there.
Boston Herald.
A Woman Soldier Wants a
Pension.
Mrs. Hooker, ii well-known laily,
made formal claim to a pension, based
on the fact that she was an enlist
i'il soldier ot the late war, served three
years and was t.wico wounded. At the
breaking out of the war Mr. Hooker
was appointed lirst lieutenant and
his wife accompanied him to the front.
A young man who bore some resem
liliinru to her was induced to submit
himself to the necessary examination
ami when an opportunity presented
itself theyouii!! woman, properly iini
lorined, exchanged places witii him.
Willi her husband she has lived at
lOlkhiirt Indiana several years and is
familiarly known as "Colonel" Hook
er.
'Didn't Know It Was Load
ed."
The young man fell dead!
A friend had pointed a revolver at
him.
"He didn't know it was loaded!"
We often hear it stated that a mnn
is not responsible for what he does
not know. The law presupposes
knowledge and therefore convicts the
man who excuses crime by ignorance
"If I had only known" has often
been an unfortunate man's apology
for some evil unknowingly wrought,
but in a matter of general interest
as for instance that laudanum is a
poison, that naphtha is a deadly ex
plosive, that btood heavily charged
with a winter's accumulations of the
waste of the system,—it is one's duty
to know the fact and tiie consequences
thereof. Our good old rand mothers
knew for instance, that the opening of
spring was the most perilous period
of the year.
Why?
Because then the blood stream is
sluggish and chillcd by the cold weath
er,and if not thinned a good deal and
made to (low quickly and healthfully
through the arteriej and veins, it is
impossible to have good vigor tho rest
of the year. Hence, without excep
tion, what is now known as Warner's
Log Cabin-Sarsaparilla, was plentiful
ly made and religiously given to every
member of the family regularly
through March, April, May and Juno.
It is a matter of record that this pru
dential, preventive and restorative
custom saved many a tit of sickness,
prolonged life and happiness to a vig
orous old age, nnd did away with
heavy medical expenditures.
Mrs. Mamie Kercliwal, Lexington,
Ky., used Uarner's Log Cabin Sarsa
parilla "for nervous sick headache o!
wiiich I had been a sufferer for years.
It has been a great benefit to me."
Capt. Huqh Harking, 1114 S. 1-Hh
st., Philadelphia, Pa., says "it puri
fied my blood and removed the blotch
es from my skin." Mrs. Aarea Smith,
Topton, Berks Co., Pa., says she "was
entirely cured of a skin disease of the
worst kind," by LogCubin Sarsaparil
la. Bad skin indicates a very bad
condition of the blood.
If you would live and be well, go to
your druggist to-day and get Warner's
Log Cabin Sarsaparilla and take 110
other,—there's nothing like it or as
good,—and completely reiiovatesvour
impaired system with this simple, old
fashioned preparation of roots and
herbs.
Warner, who makes tiie famous
Safe Cure, puts it up, and tli at is a
guarantee of excellence all over tho
known world. Take it yourself and
give it to the other members of tho
family, including the children. You
will be astonished at its health-giving
and life-prolonging powers. Wo say
tiiis editorially with perfect confi
dence, because we have heard good
things ot it everywhere, and its name
is a guarantee that it is first class in
every particular.
The Great Enterprises.
There is nothing in the recent his
tory of the world that is more re
markable than tiie formidable and
costly works that have been under
taken in our age to annihilate
space and time and promote ease and
economy of transport. Every modern
nation has contributed its quota to
this movement. Great Britain has
been the pioneer of the railway sys
tem, and has, besides, constructed" a
system of canals, some 4,000 miles in
extent, and involving an expenditure
of £60,000,OOOjto
£70,000,000, which,
though far from being as useful as it
might be made, and greatly overshad
owed by theomnipotent and omnipres
ent iron way,
is still found of great ad
vantage in the transport of heavy
commodities. In France canal navi
gation is much more valued and
utilized than in England, and the wa
terways are especially looked aft
er by the government, which
iias recently undertaken a large
expenditure for their further
development. Germany, like France,
has a canal system of considerable
extent, and has in hand at the pres
ent time two important links in the
chain of such communications—a ca
nal 163 miles long, from Dortmund to
Emden harbor, which is to cost A'3,
233,000, and the improvement of tho
navigation from the Oder at Furs
tenbnrg to the Upper Spree at Berlin,
a distance of 54 miles, at an estimat
ed cost of £630,000. Further east,
the Isthmus of Corinth has almost
been pierced by a canal which con
nects the Mediterranean and the
Adriatic with the Archipelago and the
Black Sea, thus shortening the dis
tance between the Pirieeus and Mar
seilles by 11 per cent., while Genoa
is brought nearer by 12, Venice and
Trieste by 18, and Brindisi by 32 per
cent. The length of this canal is, how
ever, only 4 miles, the greatest depth
of cutting being 285 feet, and the to
tal amount of excavation being es
timated at 13,000,000 cubic yards.
Russia, again, has recently completed
a maritime canal between Cronstadt
and St. Petersburg 18 miles in length
and 22 miles 111 depth, over a floor
270 feet in width. This, canal, howev
er, was a comparatively easy under
taking. It was cut through the sub
merged Delta of the Neva, in a depth
of water varying from 8 feet near St.
Petersburg to 20 feet near Cron
stadt.—The Fortnightly Review.
"Brag.'*
Some men, says acontemporary, go
around talking large about their plans
to buy a bouse, who haven't money
enough to get a third mortgage on a
length of fence rail. Other men go
about talking carelessly about their
"grounds," who haven't room enough
in the front door-way to make two
blades of grass grow where one starv

The opening of tho great Sioux res

member that the land is not yet sur

the commissioners, who are yet to bo
appointed, have completed their work
of getting the consent of the Indian to
tho proposed cession of lands. Set

land, but this will be unsatisfactory
and may lead to endless dispute and

Who is Never Craty,
There are many lirm believers in the
theory that most people are crazy at
times and facts seem to support their
belief. Tho following from source
nnknown to the writer, will likely re
mind a number of our readersof some
incident in tiieir experience, which at
the time of its occurrence seemed to
them most unaccountable:
"A wiso man will step backward off
a porch or into a mudepuddle, a great
philosopher will hunt for the specks
that ate in lus hand or on his fore
head, a hunter will sometimes shoot
himself or his dog. A working-girl had
been feeding a great clothing knife for
ten years. One day she watched the
knife conio down slowly upon her
hand. Too late she woke out of her
stupor with one hand cone. For a
few seconds her mind failed, and she
silt by her machine a temporary luna
tic, and had watched the knife ap
proach her own hand. A distinguish
ed professor was teaching near a ca
nal. Walking along one evening in
summer ho walked as deliberately into
thecanalashe had been walking along
the path a second before. He was
brought to his senses by the water
and the mud and the absurdity of the
sit uation. He had on a new suit of
clothes and anew silk hat,but though
the damage was thus great, he still
laughs over the adventure. Our mail
collectors find in the iron boxes along
the streets all sorts of papers and ar
ticles which have been put in by some
hand from wiiose motions the mind
has become detached for a second. A
glove, a pair of spectacles, a deed, a
mortgage a theatre ticket, goes in and
011 goes the person, holding on to the
regular letter which should have been
deposited. This is called absent-miud
eduess, but is a brief lunacy."—Scien
tific American.
Nightcaps are Injurious.
Nightcaps as articles of dress,except
in antiquated farces and amateur
theatricals, have gone out of fashion.
Their universal use by our forefathers
and foremothers, may perhaps, be
safely attributed to the fact that in
the good old times sleeping apart
ments wore uncommonly draughty.
Ill-fitting window sashes, iarge chim
neys, and ante-diluvian doors let in
so much air that there was very good
reason for protecting the head from
tho consequence of too much ventila
tion. Nowadays the headgear appro
priate for night use has become obso
lete, so that it will cause no painful
shock when tho public are informed,
by the voice of medical authority,
that the use of nightcaps is actually
injurious. "A man," we are told,
"might as well sleep in his hoots as in
a cap." We are not aware that even
if a person did commit the former
enormity any dreadful effects 011 his
health would infallibly follow, what
ever might bo the results to his bed
linen. Still, medical science is pretty
safe in running a till against night
caps, for the simple reason that it is
hardly anybody interest to defend
them.—London Daily News.
