The Japanese nod of War. In the Japanese capital there is a gigantic image of a woman, made of wood and plaster, and dedicated to Hachiman, the jrort of war. In height it measures fifty-four feet, the head alone, which is reached by a winding stairway in the interior of the figure, being large enough to comfortably hold twenty persons. The figure holds a huge wooden sword in one hand, the blade of the weapon beinar twenty seven feet long, and a ball twelve feet in diameter in the other. Internally the model is fitted np with an extraor dinary anotomical arrangement, which is supposed to represent the different portions of the brain. A fine view of the country is obtained by looking through one of the eyes of the figure. The admission to a1! parts of the struc ture is two cents. N. V, Sun, A Bad fipell.

Another strip of Indian lands, the northern part of the Coolville reserva tion, in Washington, will probably be thrown open to settlement next fall. Government surveyors completed their survey of the strip several weeks ago. The reservation is bounded on the north by te British Columbia boun dary line, on the west by the Okanon gan river and on the south and east by the Columbia river. The portion to be thrown open for settlement extends the whole width of the reservation and from the British Columbia boundary to about thirty-six 'miles south.

Frank L. Stanton, In Atlanta Constitution. THE BLUES CURE. What the Great Golden Remedy Did for the Patients. There was a Water cure, a Rest cui e, and a Mind cure in the same town; but all three together did not do half the business of the Blues cure. In fact, those three establishments complained bitterly that tho Blues cure took away many of their patients. They did all they could to crush it out; they de clared it to be a humbug, a mere quack concern, with its mysterious "Oreat Golden Remedy." in trut there was a mystery con nected with the Biues cure. It was in one respect something like the Loisette Memory system, for every patient had to sign a bond that he would never re veal to anyone the secret of the "Great Golden Remedy." But in spite of this, and the enmity of the other establish ments, the Blues cure prospered ex traordinarily, and people thronged to it from far and near. The Blues cure could proudly affirm that in all its ca reer a case had never been lost The Blues cure office was a small, sunshiny room opening from a large, cheerful waiting room. One fine October afternoon the clock was just striking three as the doctor, accompanied by a patient entered the office and closed the door behind him. The doctor was a jolly little man with a bald head, and a beaming smile so much like sunshine that on rainy days his great black cat would stretch herself out before him, as though she were really warming herself in its beams. The patient was a tall, thin theo logue, with a lugubrious expression of countenance, suitable for a chronic at tender of funerals. The doctor's style was laconic. "What's the matter?" said he. "I am subject to depression of spirits," replied tho theologne, with a deep sigh that roused tho black cat from its slumbers. "When do these attacks come on?" said the doctor, looking at him with half closed eyes, as an artist surreys a picture. ."Every evening," replied the theo logne. "I can't use my eyes then, and I fall to thinking of my theological questions, and I get extremely down in my spirits." "What kind of questions?" "Oh, the most importa nt and inter esting which can stir a man's mind," said the theologue, with such unwonted animation that the black cat again was startled. "Whether Moses wrote the Pentateuch; whether the Lcvitical code came in with Ezra or before; the doctrines of original sin, future pro bation, and many others. 1 am so up set in my old ideas (for I was taught from my youth up that it was wicked to question anything about such mat ters) that I get terribly blue." "Oh, ho!" said the doctor, jumping up and fetching a little gilt box from a table. "I see what you need! You must drop your studies for a time and devote yourself to taking this great golden remedy. Follow tho directions as if your life depended on it and you'il be cured of the blues." "Is that all?" said the theologue, in astonishment "You'll find it enough!" replied the doctor, as he showed him theVoor. "Next!" he called through the ante room door, much as a lecturer directs bis assistant to throw the next picture an the screen. In came r young woman of perhaps seven and twenty, attired according to the latest fashion. "Oh, doctor, how can I get over the blues?" she asked, in the jerk-, shopped-off, broad-A style of enuncia tion so fashionable among feminine "dudes." "What gives them to you?" said the ioctor, looking at her with a magnify ing glass, as if to see to what genus she belonged. "My looking glass," frankly an swered the young woman. "It shows me that I'm getting plainer svery day I've got three gray hairs and one crow's foot" "WelL what of that?" asked the doc tor. "What of that?" repeated the pa tient "It shows I m growing old, and that's enough to make anybody blue. There are lots of 'buds' coming out ev ery year in society, and I'm getting to be one of the old girls. I just hate to be an old girl and be laid on the shelf! I had an odious time at my last ball, and life isn't worth living, and I'm sick of it!" "Hnmph!" said the doctor. "We'll cure you, if you will obey me implicit ly. "Yon must follow this prescription faithfully. Take this Great Golden Remedy whenever you feel the symp toms coming on, and you won't have a single blue." So sayin.7 he handed her a little gilt box like tha one he gave the theologue, and she too passed into the street Next came a widow buried in crepe. "Well, Mrs. Relict, I suppose you've come to report? said the doctor. "Yea," replied the widow. "The Golden Remedy has worked wonders with me. I thought it would be so easy, but I found it very hard to swal low at first I persevered, and it has done me an enormous amount of good. I've slept and eaten as I haven't since John's death." "You've given up reading your letters of condolence and wiping your eyes, thenT" said the doctor. . "Oh, yesl" said the widow; "I don't have any time now." "How often do yon take the rem edyr- ..;- "Ub, nearly ail tne time," she re plied. "If I go an hour without it, I get to thinking about John and bow I miss him, and It gives me the bluea "WelL keep on the samo way," said the doctor, heartllyj "keep It up." Ao sooner had the widow departed than in came a pale young man. "What gives you the blues?" said the doctor, with one of his most sunshiny smiles. The cat left the window and stretched herself out In front of him. The young man hesitated in answer ing this question, but as the doctor pressed him he finally admitted the cause. I can't help thinking about myself. said he. "When 1 go among people I am purs jed by thoughts of my own awk wariness and stupidity and am keenly sensitive to every little slight This shuts my mouth and makes me doubly uninteresting, and naturally people don't enjoy mo; and then I come home and brood over it and it really seems as if everybody were laughing at me, and I get as blue as indigo." "Yes, you're right," said the doctor; "it's an nirgravatedcase of morbid self centcredness; but If yon take this Golden Remedy every time you get to thinking about yourself, and take large doses of It when you are in company, you'll be cured as sure as fate." The young man looked Incredulous as he took his little gilt box and his departare, and went his way. "Oh, doctor!" said the next, a poor little di fssmaker with so sad a voice that tho black cat again retired to the sofa. "I'm so blue! When I get through my work and sit alone in my little room evenings, I feel so lonely I'd most like to kill myself. I haven't a rela tion or a friend in all the town, and It's something dreadful to have no one to welcome you home nobody to tell things to, nobody to say good night or morning to you. Why, sometimes I kiss my own arm, I feel so desperately loDelv!" and she burst into tears. "Poor thing! poor thing!" said the doctor, in a cheerful voice, as if he were saying: "Fine day! fine day! We'll fix you up. Now, my dear, just follow the directions in this little gilt box whenever you begin to feel lonely; and take a specially large dose in the even ing when you come home from work " The young girl smiled a feeble kittle smile as she thanked him for the box and left the room. "What in the world is the matter with you?" inquired the doctor of his next patient, an elegantly-attired young man, who looked as sleek and well-to-do and about as intellectual as a well-fed, well-curried horse. 'I'm bored to death," drawled the young fellow. "I was so bored with balls and parties and racing and cards and shooting and theaters and every thing else in that line, it was positively a relief to wake up one morning and find I had the blues; for it was a new sensation. But I've had them so long now, I'm bored with them, too, and I've come here to get cured." "Well," said the doctor, looking at him through his raagnifying-glass till the young man actually blushed, "you'll find my remedy so hard to follow it will be like drawing teeth; but I can assure you it will be a "new sensation,' and if you stick to it it will cure even you." "I'll take It at any price!" said this afflicted representative of boredom. "No price," said the doctor, "except secrecy. The remedy does no good if anyone else learns that you are trying it for such a purpose." The young man signed the bond, and departed with a more animated expres sion on his blase countenance, and a small gilt box in his pocket The next arrival was an invalid in a rolling chair. Her pale face beamed with pleasure. N "Oh, ho! So you're back! Remedy don't work?" said the doctor, knowing better. "I should think it did work," she an swered, gravely. "You know how long the days were as I lay in my bed or sat in this chair, knowing I could never take a step, and brooding over every ache and pain. Well, now the days are not half long enough to do all I want Tho remedy has given me so much to do, and made life entirely dif ferent to me. llow can I thank you, doctor?" 'Pshaw, child!" said the good man, "don't thank ine. It's the remedy. Keep it up; just keep it up." Next came a very intellectual-looking young woman, who had obtained a de gree from a university. She complained that through all the studying to which she devoted her life for the cultivation of her mind, there ran an undertone of melancholy which, whenever she stopped work, culminate in an attack of the blues. As usual, the doctor dispatched her with his universal prescription, and also the other half dozen patients who called that afternoon. One was a man made miserable by his own selfish jealousy of any attention paid his wife. Another got the blues because she was so discontented with her humdrum, monotonous life, being kept at home by an invalid sister when she wanted to study music in Germany. So they came, rich and poor, young and old, no class in society seeming to be exempt from this miserable ailment, and each departed thankful for the Great Golden Remedy. At last the clock struck six, and the doctor closed his office door and settled himself comfortably by the fire. The black cat jumped up in his laD, and the doctor took one of tho mysterions lit tle boxes from the table. As he. In an absent-minded way, removed the cover, a little paper fluttered out Not a pill nor a powder was to be seen, and the Great Golden Remedy consisted only of the little paper, on which were printec' in golden letters these words: WHENEVER TOU ARC PEBLIKO BL VE, SOMETHING FOR SOME OSE ELSE OO DO. "Flow silly people are!" said the doc tor to himself. "They travel miles to get here, take no end of trouble, sign that bond and all that nonsense just to get what they could have learned from the Book of the Great Physician just as well as I did. Just because the idea is dressed up in a poor rhyme and a gilt box, and there's a mystery about it, and it's the fashion to come here, the Blues cure is a howling success, and all the world is running after my Great Golden Remedy," And the black cat switched her tall and said amen, aa well as she knew how.
