Leavftt is a tnj-ted employe of tlio Unit- d Oil Limipuuy ut v-oalcroeK, Co.orauo. For several years his health has been bud, and rapidly going from that to worae. He was troubled with constipation,a very seri ous nervous headache,sharp pains down the back, general debilitv, and. In fact, was so generally run down in health that it seemed there wasn't a well port or function to him. During the winter of ’95 and ’U6, he was not able to walk any distance or take any great exertion whatever. He continued work be cause his employment required very lilt e labor, but he nail one of his children with him constantly lust he should be overcome and faint away. Mr. Leavitt tried several physicians, but none could do anything for him. Instead of improving under their care, he grew rapid ly worse. Although he tried many prep arations and medicines nothing seemed to fit hi» case. Sometime in May last, he read an acoouut of Dr. Williams’ Dink Pills in the Canon City Record, and he determined to try them. He immediately purchased a box at H. H. Rosser’s drug store in Coalcreek. und began their use. After ho had taken four or five boxes ho noticed a wonderful change, und after that he began to improve rapidly. Now Mr. is a strong, hearty man of 200 pounds weight. He has his full strength, is never troubled withconstipution, nervous headache, pain in back, and in most ways feels better than he has felt before in many years. He has a good appetite, and savs he feels like a new man. Mr. Leavitt attributes Ibis recovery wholly to Dr. Wilburns* Pink Pills for Pale People. lie Is 44 years of age and has a family of seven children. Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills contain, in a con densed form, ail the elements necessary to give new life and richness to ihe blood and restore shattered nerves.

They are almost always compli cated with liver or stomach troubles, nerv ousness, neuralgia, or "general debility.” The best detective remedy which Nature has provided to search out and arrest these perplexing ailments is I)r. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery. It lays an arresting hand directly upon the poisonous, paralyz ing elements hiding in the liver ana diges tive organs. It gives the blood-making glands power to manufacture an abundant supply of pure, red, highly vitalized blood which reinforces the Inngs with healthy tissue ; feeds the nerve-centres with power, and builds up solid muscular flesh and active energy.

One of the queerest "institutions” ol the national capital is the annual clear ance sale of the dead letter office, in tykich a vast accumulation of articles gone astray in the mails is sold to the hignest bidder, nays me Indiauapolis Journal. The auction house where it is held Is continually crowded with excited men, women and children and beside it the bargain counters during the holidays are as havens of rest, for when Uncle Sam goes Into the Junk shop business great things are ex pected. As In the church-fair raffle, you pay a small amount of money and trust to luck to get back more than Its value. The articles, previously listed in a wholesale sort of way, are tied up in bundles of from three to a half dozen and "auctioned" for what th*y will bring, the average bids rang ing between 10 cents and a dollar. No body Is permitted to examine the goods before purchasing and no money is re funded to the dissatisfied. Everybody hopes to pull a genuine plum from the pie In the shape of a diamond ring, a silk dress pattern or a silver tes; ot and, although comparative blanks are the rule, there Is always the possibility of a prize. For example, the auctioneer holds up one of these odd-shaped bun dles, listed "Pictures, underwear, music, cigars. Going—going-gone— for 90 cents to a dapper young gentle man who was caught by the word "cigar.” He opehs it on the spot —an unwise thing to do if one objects to good-natured ridicule —and this Is what he finds: Six cigars broken into bits, so strong an odor that one wonders how a sledge-hammer could have done it; music, soiled copy of "I Love You, Mah Honey, Yes I Do”; underwear, a female 10-cent "jersey”; pictures, col lection of newspaper cuts, designed for amusement of some small child. The lot would be dear at a quarter and is of no use to the buyer. In the dead letter office proper—that cliarnal house which swallows nearly half a million missives every month, it is positively harrowing. More than forty bushels of photographs have accumulated there, awaiting the annual cremation. There are tresses of hair, enough to stuff a dozen mattresses, grandmothers’ silver locks and babies’ golden curls, many no doubt cut from dead brows; and small sums of money which poor work men send home to feed their wives and little ones and servant girls save from their scanty wages for needy parents — gone to Uncle Sam's rich purse, not be cause the United States wants it but because the senders’ writing or or thography was beyond mortal ken. It is hard to realize that in this land ol schools at the close of the nineteenth century there are so many people so ignorant or so careless as to send sev eral millions of letters a year without stamps, or addresses, or with addresses which no man can make out. People seem to be so intent on what goes into the letters that they forget all about tlie superscription. It is estimated that $1,500,000 in drafts and $80,000,000 in cash Is received every year through dead letters. THE LATE MR. WILLIS. I-lfe of the Man Who Died Itei-ently In Honolulu. United States Minister Willis died at Honolulu of pneumonia, which he con tracted in San Fran cisco several months ago. Albert S. Willis was born in Shelby county, Ky., In 1843, and served as a Democratic representative from the Fifth Kentucky (Louisville) district from the Forty-fifth to Forty ninth congress inclusive, when he was succeeded by Mr. Caruth. After the mission of Paramount Commissioner Blount to Hawaii and the report he made to the President alleging that Queen Lilliuokaluni had been wrong fully unseated from the throne of the Hawaiian island by United States in tervention, Mr. Willis was appointed by President Cleveland, in September, 1893, minister to Hawaii, and was sent out with sealed instructions to restore LiUiuokalani to her throne on condi tion that she grant general amnesty to those persons Instrumental In setting up the provisional government, and recognize all bona-fide acts and obli gations. Queen LiUiuokalani, however, refused to promise to grant the amnes ty, and the upshot was that Mr. Willis eventually recognized the Dole govern ment and was subsequently formally accredited to it. The anxieties of his position had a marked effect upon his health and ap pearance. When he left for Honolulu he was a fine specimen of physical de velopment, with a full black beard and hair. When he returned on leave two years later his hair was white, and he was in appearance a wreck of his form er self. He discharged his exceeding ly difficult duties in Hawaii with marked tact and discretion, and was popular there, in spite of the adverse circumstances which surrounded him from the start. President Cleveland was deeply affected by the news of the death of Minister Willis. He said he had known Mr. Willis for many years. He was an honest and thoroughly capa ble man, whom the President held in THE LATE ALBERT S. WILLIS. the highest esteem, and of whose death he learned with deepest regret. Varieties of IHanta.

SAMUEL SPAR hawk has returned to Burlington, Vt., from a quest In which psychical agents are the chief mentors, says the Pittsburg Dis patch. It is still in progress. Its ob ject is the rescue of Dean B. Connor, if he still lives, or to learn his fate, if dead. Mr. Connor was an expert with the calcium light and stereopticon ef fects. He directed that feature of a successful play during Its run in New York. Then he went to the City of Mexico with a theatrical troupe and was stricken with tropical fever. His death anil burial were reported and a $2,000 policy wa« paid to his father, W. H. H. Connor, assistant postmaster of Burlington. About a year ago P. C. Dodge, who had been a lifelong friend of Mr. Connor, went to Mexico and opened the grave. The remains that it contained were not those of his friend. Mrs. Hannah Piper, a medium who had been tested by the Society of Psychical Research of Boston, was con sulted by Mr. Connor's family and friends. She said that Dean Connor was not dead. Other mediums made The above illustration shows the famous chestnut tree of Mount Aetna. It appears like a group of trees, Il ls not, for it is all from a single stump, and measures 100 feet in circumference. The lower parts are largely hol low. but the tops thrive. It Is called the "Hundred Horse Chestnut Tree.” for It is reputed to have sheltered Jeanne of Aragon and a troop during a heavy storm. Savants have figured it out that it must be from 3,000 to 4,000 years old. like assertions. An investigation led to the belief that Mr. Connor had been taken from the common ward of the hospital and cared for in a private room until he had recovered and was discharged. A Mexican was put In tho bed that he had vacated in the com mon ward, and as the name over the head of the bed was not changed Mr. Connor was supposed to have died in stead of the Mexican. Further inves tigation convinced friends that after recovery from the long run of fever Mr. Connor’s reason was clouded and ho did not not know enough to com municate with his friends. The medi um said he was confined In an Insti tution of some kind. The Psychical Society became so positive of its abil ity to locate him that P. C. Dodge and Dr. Samuel Sparhawk, who was an in timate acquaintance of Mr. Connor went to Mexico, and have been work ing for nearly two months under the guidance of the adepts, who sent them telegraphic suggestions bearing upon the strange case. Consul-General Shaffer at Vera Cruz gave every pos sible assistance, as did F. R. Guernsey, editor of a paper published In the City of Mexico. In the consultations with Mrs. Piper regarding Mr. Connor’s fate the spirit of an old man has broken through her while in a trance. Her descriptions of Mexico and places and people were accurate to the small est detail. The medium herself, so it is claimed, has no knowledge of Mex ico. At times another incorporeal be ing, apparently a younger man, ex pressed Itself through Mrs. Piper by means of writing. The writing bore no resemblance to the medium's own chirography. It was that of a well educated person and gives exact de scriptions of the country in which Mr. Connor now is. By those directions Mr. Dodge and a searching party have been conducted from the City of Mex ico through town after town to Orizaba, thence to Puebla, where they now are. Puebla is 120 miles from the City of Mexico, and Its scenery, streets and surroundings have been exactly pic tured by Mrs. Piper. Telegrams re ceived at frequent Intervals direct th; party. They sometimes mention towns by name, oftener by the scenery around them. One message told Mr. Dodge to go up a certain street, turn to the left from a church and proceed toward a hill. With such details the searchers are able to find the exact localities indicated. The Connors fam ily say the search Is not a sensational or .superstitious experiment. They, with mem berg of the Psychical society, re gard it ns a scientific Investigation. They say that the United States and Mexican governments and a large num ber of peisons In all societies of psychic al research are deeply interested and ready to assist in any way possible. While in the various towns the search er? visited the workhouses, asylums and other institutions, looking for clews. At one sitting it was said by the spirit that Mr. Connor was in a building at work with his hands and that he had on a checkered frock. The details of his appearance were enough to be absolutely correct and some of his physical peculiarities were men tioned. It was stated that he has lucid Intervals and that he has written two letters which he hud dropped from a window but which no one found. They say he suffers much menially but that his mind is clearing. If Mr. Dodge falls in his search, the spirits say, Mr. Connor will return some day of his own accord. MOUNTAIN SHEEP. In Colorado They Are Coming Near the Mountain cheep appear to be increas ing in Colorado, and, stranger still, the rare and timid animals are leaving their dizzy haunts among the high mountain peaks and drawing nearer to the habitations of men Lh«ui ever be fore, says the Denver Republican. In the comparatively low lands near the town of Jefferson there Is now a flock of fifty or more mountain sheep. Jeffer son Is on the South Park railroad, about eighty-one miles southwest of Denver, in Park county. It is an old established community, and has near it the well known summer resort. Jeffer son lake. The vicinity, disturbed by the rumble of trains an well us the sounds of human life and industry, is not at all a quiet one. It has none of the characteristics which usually mark the natural home of the almost extinct mountain sheep. And yet for several days past a band of at least fifty of the soft-eyed, large-horned na tive sheep of the Rocky mountains has been calmly grazing around the town of Jefferson anti close to the railroads. It is said that the sheep do not display any sign of fear of the Jefferson peo ple. Many of them come in open day light within easy pistol shot of the residences. They do not run away un less somebody curiously tries to fright- A TREE THAT IS FOUR THOUSAND YEARS OLD. en them. For many years the sight of mountain sheop has been a rarity in Colorado, and usually but one at a time has been seen. A hunger far off from civilization might decry a solitary sheep perched on a crag overlooking some wild and steep canyon, but hardly ever within gunshot range. No such thing as fifty sheep together lias been reported, even by the veriest Mun chausen of hunters. When a lone sheep was seen it usually disappeared from view at the slightest alarm. Considering these things, the descent of fifty sheep upon the town of Jeffer son, as though they had formed them selves into an excursion party, some where among the mountains, does not look reasonably explainable. The general theory is that bitter cold and deep snows In the higher altitudes drove them downward, and that they joined together for mutual protection as they traveled from peak to peak. Killing mountain sheep is absolutely prohibited by law in Colorado. It is a closed season all the year round with the animals, just as It is with buffalo. A Hud Monkey. Mr. Texter, proprietor of Ulmer park, on Gravesend Beach, L. 1., has a mon key in his menngerie that is credited with some queer pranks. He likes whisky, beer and wine, takes a drink whenever he can get It, and like many of the human species goes on a spree once in a while. That is, he quits his cage and disappears for a time. Wheth er he leaves the park and goes to Coney island or Bath beach is a question, al though it is reported he lias been seen in both places. If he returns home in the night and finds that he is locked out he gets in by breaking a pane of glass. That he is bitterly opposed to the Raines law is evident from the fact that one day when a copy of the law was lying in a chair near his cage he came out, tore it into shreds and ate it. Like some human men this monkey is a wife-beater. A much smaller female monkey occupies the cage with him.and her face and head always hear marks of his cuffs and blows. A Stamlar l. He is a man of Irascible impulses and a bluntness of speech which wins him many enemies. At the card table he was greatly annoyed by a lady who insisted on paying more attention to the conversation than she did to the game. "I see no reason,” she was say ing. "why a woman should not assume just ns much importance in all affairs as men do.” "I see none myself," re plied the irascible man. with unusual gentleness, "provided she is intellectu ally qualified to do so.” "And what would you suggest ns the test of her mental fitness?” "As good test as any would be her ability to remember what are trumps.”—Washington Star.

Slit* lit it Woman of Karo Self-I’oaeoa- A singular fact übout Queen Victoria is that she has not only always en joyed exceptional good health, and that even at her present advanced age she is unusually strong and well, but that she has had more hair-breadth escapes than any other sovereign in history, says the New York Journal. No fewer than seven attempts have been made on her life, and these have been occasions when the queen has seemed face to face with death.. Hyde Park was the scene of the first attempt on the queen’s life, which wus made by a youth of 17, who on the 10th of July, 1840, fired at her majesty with a pistol. The prince con sort. to whom the queen had been mar ried a few months before, happily saw the youth in time to draw his wife down beside him. so that the ball passed over her head. The mad youth was for some time confined In lledlam, and was afterward allowed to go to Australia. Only two years passed away before the second attempt, when, al most on the same spot, a man named Francis fired at the queen as she was again driving with the prince. The shot missed ami Francis wus sentenced to death for high treason, the sentence being afterward commuted to transpor tation for life by desire of the queen. Strangely enough, on the very day her majesty’s clemency became known, a hunchback named Bean, a mere youth, made another attempt to injure the queen'. He was transported for seven years. Twenty-one years ago, when the queen was crossing to Gasport from Osborne, there was a collision with the royal yacht, in which throe persons per ished. But once more her life was pre served. On many other occasions the queen has been in great danger, such as when, in August, 1851, her majesty was in a railway accident and when, soon after her accession, the horses at tached to her carriage bolted. On each of these occasions the queen’s self possession has been remarkable. Cool ness and presence of mind have been characteristic of her whenever danger has threatened her. "Great events.’’ she has said, “always make rie calm.” How lo Stop Them. "i would give my heart’s blood for Cuba!” shrieked the patriot. “Good!’’ exclaimed a by-stander. "I’m getting up a troop now. Will you join us?’’ “Well—er —er—my family,” replied the patriot—l’ve got a family to sup port. and ” "We'll take care of your family,” said the other, "and pay you well be sides. What do you say?"
