“They are sold under a positive guare

satisfaction, or the money I 8 promptly re

those chronic weaknesses, nervous and other
derangements peculiar to women, is used with
unfailing success. It cures weak back, bear
ing-down sensations, irregulavities anqd weaks
nesses common to the sex, and being the
most perfect of tonic medicines builds up
and strengthens the entire system. Thy de.
mand for it is constant, and | am conversant
with scores of cases cured by it.”
Returning after a few moments’ abgence,
the venerable wielder of the pestle remarked,
“the number of Sarsaparillas and other, goe

He Explains Wiy the Eapth js Raceding
From the Sun.
_ Professor Wiggins says he, cone
§n!ers his discm'ery that the earth
14 receding from the sun the greats
et astronomical event of the cen~
}llry. This recission, he declres,
1s proved by what is known as the
procession of the eguinoxes, which
| canses the tropics! year to be shorts
er than the sidereal, the latter hes
l'u; the real meusure of the earth’s
ncreasing orhit. Bis secord nmof
he gkl the moon’s seenlar :;«-ce]-
eration, for it is agreed on by all
astronomers, so he asserts, that the
moon travels faster in her orbit
now than two centuries before the
hristisn era. - When the earth
approaches the sun, as she does
when moving to her perinelion,
the moon reeedes and travels in a
!:ll‘:er orbit, aad whon approach
-11 r aphelion the satellite approachs
¢s our planer, and thus not «nly
wovesin a smwaller orbit, but mm.ev_g
more gpeadily. The eirth, there
fore, in retreating from the sun
- causes the mooa to move ira con
stantly Jdecreasing orbit and,
theretore, with inereascd repidity.
As the earty, therefore, is receding
frou the sun, it is cecting less m,}i
lesssubject to sciar attractions,
and must, thereiore, Le constantly
| expanding, so that cur oceans are
gracually becomivs more shallow,
! because they are covering a cons
saantly increasing surface, and the

{same is no doubt true of the

when you note that there is in the
empire but one regular physician

In the early paiv of the pre:ent
century we had in tnis country a
year without a summer
Those were dole ul das. No
picnies, no strawberry festiv, Is, no
summer yirls,
There were vo flies on that spm
In that gloomy year there was
frost every month, or ice and snow,
The crops iailed to mature, and the

Toe nipping and eager air ot
yesterday veealls this notable year.
With ice and snow in Michigan
and overcoats in Florida one feels
that the times are out of joint.
Arve we to have a repetition o: the
vear without a summer?
It will be recollected that the
fiendish Wirgins hasjust bulletined
us that the earth is receding from
the sun, and must necessarily grow
colder. Every fellow who hunted

a merchant in Dawson, wssin A's

he said to a reporter:
“I wou'd rather runa two horse
farm than work for a salary of $2OO
per n:outh in Albany. About five
yearsazo I had been merchandis
ing in Dawson. Burglars broke
into my store through the transome
and literally ruined me. I came
back to the country without a do}-

upon which we settled. I could
not buy a mule on time to culti
vate my crop without good indorse
ment, which I obtained, and start

The fact that the kissing Labit
furnishes an easy vehicle for the
dissemination of disease germs is of
itself o sufficient reason for its
abandonment. Many instance have
heen vited to demonstrate its dan
gerous character in this regard, ard
medica! men have repeatedly sound
ed the warning azainst its continu
ance. A little thought will empha
size the point in the readers mind.
I he woman who goes about kissing
all her women friends and acquaint
ances and their children, old or
young,sick or well regardless of the
condition of their blood or lungs
and oblivious of the possibility that
they have recently been kissed by
a dozen other persons respecting
whose hygienic conditions'she has
16 knéwledge can hardly plead that
the practice is innocent of danger.
‘Fatal diseases may be and somes
times are communicated by the im
pact of the lips and the mingling
of their moisture and of the breath
and disorders that are less immedis
ate or direful in their effects,but no
less certainly to e dreaded, are
more casily and often propagated
by the habit. The person whom |
you kiss may be entirely
free from any dizease or unhealth
ful condition yet her lips may car
ry a.poison recently taken from
those of another person. You
may be yourself the innocent means
of transmitting the disease germs
from one to another. Poisonous
cosmeties and facepowders mutilply
and complicate the malignant con
sequencss of whatis held to be an
innocent expression of affectionate

discredit the fact uron which they
a‘e based. But the unchallenged
admission that some danger does
exist has been sufficient to pracii
cally substant’ate the case against
the kissing habit, and the warrant
for its banishment is being signed
and executed by an enlightened
womanhood. ' |
The kissing habit has been cars
ried to its greatest extreme among
Englis‘mpeuking people, and peo
ple ot other blood are often amazed
und amused by the universality and
‘heapness ot the kiss among the
Enzlish nationis, It is not necessa
rilly an argument in its tavor how
ever,that it is thus found to be ap |
weeompainiment of the highest
civilization for it may be promptly
retorted that vice and crime also
increase with civilization, and that
even civilized and refined people
often keep slive barbarious praes
tices inherited trom savage ances
iry. The kiss in its proper function
tas a fine significance and may b
made the vehicle ot the purest em»
otions the honest expression of
legitimate feeling a greeting full o
zenuine volui tary sympathy and
iove. The kissing habit is an
abuse and a nuisance. It has
brought the kizslute disurace and
made it vulgar cheap and hypoeri
