Sufferer* from Dyspepsia should read the fol

Judge Peck, a justice at Tracy, Cal., and a writer
connected with the Associated Press:
"By a deep sense of gratitude for the great
benefit I hare received from the use of Hood's

d. R. WATKINS.
In the year 1868, Mr. J. R. Watkins first began
the manufacture of Dr. Ward's Liniment. For
years he struggled along with limited means,
striving with all his powers and at times despair
ing of success, but at last established a living,
paying business, and made the name "Dr. Ward's"
a household word in thousands of homes. Dur
ing all these long years of toiling and waiting,
Mr. Watkins little thought that men could be
found so lost to every principle of right and
lubtice as to undertake to despoil him of nis bus
iness, and themselves to attempt to harvest the
fruits of his life-long labors. However, in this
matter, he learned that he Was mistaken. In
arious parts of the country, sprang up bogus
agents offering medicines said to be Dr. Ward's or
'•just as good as Dr. Ward's," frequently leading
customers into thinking they had the genuine
article. Therefore, in order to protect his busi
ness and the public from being imposed upon,
Mr. Watkins bought from Richard Ward, the
world-wide right to use his name as a trade
mark for a full line of medicines, and caused the
sime to be registered in the U. S. Patent Office

TWO INDICTMENTS HOLD GOOD.
Deeision of Judge GroMcnp on A In
terstate Commerce Caae.
CHICAGO, Jan. 21.—In the United
States district court Judge Grosscup
handed down an opinion on the motion
to quash the indictments in the Santa
Fe alleged violation of the interstate
commerce act. The indictments were
upheld in part and quashed in part.
John A. Hanley, general traffic mana
ger of the Santa Fe, and Ex-President
Rinehart of the road were adjudged to
have been properly indicted on two
counts. These counts set forth that from
April to November, 1892, the two officials
violated the act by giving rebates and
drawbacks, and that on Oct. 15 of that
year, they made they made the pay
ment. The rebate was paid to Nelson
"Morris, but the indictment as to Morris
was quashed on the ground that the
rate was a discrimination against ship
pers by the railroad, and Morris' ac
ceptance of the rate in no wise made
him guilty of discrimination.
The Effect of he Decisions.
These decisions are in effect that a
shipper could not be held for violation
in accepting a rebate and is the first
legal interpretation of that part of the
interstate commerce law making ship
pers equally liable with carriers to a
violation of law in discrimination.
Hanley and Rinehart will not submit
without a stubborn fight, and probably
an appeal to a higher court. The rail
road interests of the country will take
the general issue of the law to the
courts of last resort.

It is generally believed, by the simple
r.nd unlearned, that the art of advertis
ing is of^comparatively modern inven
tion, but a very slight study of the sub
ject will be sufficient to convince the in
quirer that it is, in point of fact, one of
the mostfegncient of all the civilized arts.
Indeed, thefirstadvertisement was prob
ably coeval with: the first man who had
something to dispose of or with the
first woman who wanted something she
had not got. It seems not impossible
that the serpent tempted Eve to partake
of the apple by means of a "puff para
graph, setting forth the merits of the
fruit as a complexion beautifier. Be that
as it may, the uses of advertisement
were known at a very early date to the
Israelites, who were accustomed to
placard the streets of their cities with
the utterances of kings and prophets.
The ancient Greeks, too, were much
given to advertisement, chiefly through
the medium of the town crier, who,
however, was not permitted to offend
the ears of the citizens with his procla
mations unless he were accompanied by
a musician to give him the correct pitch.
The fact that property had been stolen
or damaged was made known by means
of curses, inscribed upon sheets of lead,
which were affixed to the statues of in
fernaltdeities in the temple, the venge
ance of the gods being thus invoked
upon the persons who had stolen or in
jured the advertiser's goods. A rider
was usually added, to the effect that
should the property be returned, or rec
ompense be paid, the owner would in
tercede with the gods for a remission of
The Romans also made use of the
town crier to proclaim laws, victories,
or sales, and the walls of the streets
were covered with notices painted in
black or red, or inscribed upon terra
cotta slabs, and let into the pillars on
either side of houses and-shops. Many
Of these wall advertisements were found
in Hercnlaneum and Pompeii, among
the most interesting being the announce

Said a wholesale whisky merchant:
"We have the reputation of giving more
for charity than any other class of men.
While we get credit for some things we
do, yet there are many calls made upon
us that are never recorded. I remember
a case not long ago. A former prosper
ous citizen came into our establishment.
He took out his handkerchief and wiped
the tears that came into his eyes. In a
broken hearted manner he said that his
wife was dying, and that the doctor had
prescribed whisky, but that he did not
have any money. When he told such a
tale of woe, I said:
'My friend, if your wife is really
sick, I will give you the whisky.'
"He swore he was telling the truth,
and I put the whisky in a bottle on
which was our brand. He left, the hap
piest looking man in the world. I was
feeling good also and was flattering
myself into thinking I might be another
good Samaritan, when presently my
friend reappeared. This time his tears
were foiling down and his frame was
shaking with convulsive sobs. I went
over to him and asked, 'Is your wife

dropped the bottle, which broke into a

another bottle, when to my surprise I
got a glance at a piece of the glass. I
said, 'Excuse me, my friend, but the
bottle I gave you was white glass and
that one is green.' .1 then examined the
pieces and found that it was not the bot
tle nor our brand. The liquid on the
glass was water. As I looked at my

the other day:
"Do you know, I feel quite jealous

can see in me, after looking at all those

''Oh,'' said my friend, ''some men

THE FEDERAL CONSTITUTION.
Explains How I Was
Jbde 4j the People.
Ex-President Harrison's paper in The
Ladies' Homo Journal of "This: Couzf
try of Ours" series treats comprehen
sively tsf the constitution and its appli
cation and operation, defining' the in
strument, its scope and limitations
clearly. "Theword'constitution,'" he
writes, "as used among us- implies a
written instrument, but in England it
is used to describe a'governmental sys
tem or organization made up of charters
—as the Magna Charta—the general
acts of parliament and a body of long
established legal usages or customs.
These are not compiled in any single in
strument as with us, but are to be
sought in many places.
"The common American usage in
making a state constitution is to elect
by a popular vote delegates to a conven
tion, whose duty it is to^prepare a plan
of government. When the* delegates
have agreed and have properly certified
the instrument, it is submitted to a di
rect vote of the people, and each voter
casts a ballot 'For the constitution' or
'Against theconstitution.' If a majority
vote for the constitution, it then be
comes the paramount law of the state.
The legislature does not make the con
stitution the constitution makes the
legislature. The American idea is that
constitutions(proceedfrom the people in
the exercise of their natural right of self'
government, and can only be amended
or superseded by the people. Whatever
one legislature or congress exacts the
next one may repeal, but neither can ie
peal or infringe a constitutional provi
"The delegates to the convention that
framed the constitution of the United
States were not, however, chosen by a
popular vote in the states, but by the
legislatures. Nor was the question of
the adoption of the constitution submit
ted in the states to a direct popular
vote. There have been 15 amend
ments to the constitution adopted. Ten
of these were proposed to the legisla
tures of the states by the First congress
and ratified. The other five amendments
have in like manner been submitted by
congress to the state legislatures for rat
ification, conventions in the states not
having been used in any case. It will be
noticed also that the vote upon the
adoption of the constitution and upon
amendments thereto is by states, each
state, without regard to its population,
having one vote. But while these provi
sions make the popular control less di
rect than is usual in the states and nec
essarily recognize the states in the proc
ess of making and amending the consti
tution, the idea that constitutions pro
ceed from the people is not lost.''
A MESSAGE FROM THE GALE.
listening- on the ice Floe to the Roar of
the Coming Storm.
When the swell is heavy in the ice
pack it is often very difficult to ascer
tain from which direction it comes, and
just as difficult as it is, just so impor
tant may it be that it should be found
out rightly, as the safety of the ship
might wholly depend upon correct judg
ment as to this. When the huge ice
masses begin to move and screw and
*press on the sides of the vessel, rising
and falling in a heavy swell, then there
is only one escape—namely, to work the
vessel into the fields away from the side
from which the gale blows. A mistake
as to the direction of the running swell
has often proved fatal, and the mistake
is easily made.
An old arctic sealer told me how in
hours of dread in the arctic icepack he
had laid his ear down to the icefloeand
listened to the roar of the coming swell
—that terrible message from the furious
gale:—and how he thus had discovered
whence the gale was pressing and had
been able to save the ship from destruc
tion. I tried his method and found that
it worked admirably. What is well
worth noticing is that open water nearly
always is to be found in the ice pack on
one side of icebergs. The icebergs that
we met were generally in motion, car
ried onward by the ruling current. Of
ten they ran forward in the icefields at
a speed of several knots, piling up the
huge floes before their cold, glittering
bows, but behind them they left an open
sheet of water large enough for any ship.
Now, there would of course be many
dangers for a vessel tugged along in the
ice pack by such a floating monster, but
I believe nevertheless that this method
might be instrumental in saving a ves
sel from being crushed when the icefield
is moving heavily.—G. E. Borchgrevink
