Only two month ago they had been married. Then everything had seemed o bright and fair. - , But marriage had removed the gilt from the gingerbread, and Donald and his wife realized that they were mis mated. Each had very decided opinion and tried to enforce them on the other. Jn other words, they quarrelled all the time. At last Donald felt he could stand it no longer. So he went to the minister who had performed the marriage cere mony and demanded that he reverse the process and separate them forthwith. ' "I'th sorry to hear this account of your wife," said the minister sadly, "but I can't separate you, you know, Donuld. You two are now one." "One, is it?" replied Donald scorn fully.

M. .Markey, pastor of the Methodist church of Wil liamstown, held the closest attention of a goodly number of men in the Presbyterian church last evening. The talk was one of a series to be held in conjunction with the regular monthly meetings of the club through the win ter and spring. The speaker took his audience back to thq early ancestry of New England and the thirteen colo nies and graphically pictnred the spir it of activity that dominated the first settlers of America. He described them as being active in all things and called on the men of to-day to follow- their example, to take the initiative and not follow someone else, and thus help uplift those about us and make for better communities. Rev. Mr. Markey Iho impressed on the members of the club the importance of being masters wherever their kt was.

Mr. Katz explained yeter dsy that three methods are used in this work, the only xines known to the scientific world which are any where near practical, and even these, he explained are very unsatisfactory. In one, the best method known, a measure of air is )asi-d through a quantity of sugar, the sugar is then dissolved in water that has been freed of all dust; a certain known portion of this is examined under the micro scope which shows approximately one one-millionth purl of the amount in the measure. By multiplies twin the particles per cubic foot of air are de termined, la another method a defi nite quantity of air i drawn into a syringe and then foroed through an orifice against a sticky plate. tlm the particles of duot are caught on the plate and rined on thf mk-mrpe.

Mrs. Maria Watt of Washington street, a saleslady of the cloak depart ment in the Adams Co. store in this city, went with her 12-year-old son, George, to Boston this morning. The young lad, who has been crippled since an infant as the rebuilt of infantile paralysis, is to enter the New Eng land hospital in Roxbury Saturday, and there will undergo an operation, which it is hoped will improve his par alyzed side. Meanwhile Mrs. Watt is to be employed at the hospital and will remain there until his release, which is expected to be around Christmas time.

At the exact spot where a oity horse and a dump cart backed over the bank and into the Stevens branch on Brook lyn street lat year, a pair of horses and large dump cart backed over and into the river yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock, but without fatal re suits, both horses being rescued in stead of being killed as the city horse had to be. Ihese animals, owned by Herbert C. Leonard and driven by J7-vear-old LeIie Leonard, were in the chilly stream about 'M minutes before being rescued, harnesses iM-ing cut and pulleys put in play by members of the fire department. The young driver was off the cart and endeavoring to tip it when the batik under the wheels gave way to the load. Down the '.15 foot bank the horses were dragged backwards, eventually landing in about five feet of water ana parallel with the Imnk. Leonard was alone at (lie time, but his plight became known soon ami the fire department was notified by telephone. In the small truck three of the firemen, including the chief, riiHhed to the scene, and, together with Irfonard, went into the water to cut the horse free of straps. Meanwhile many people bad congregated about the spot while others were ready to as sist. The animals scampered out of the river as soon as freed and were trotted to the stables of F. A. Slay ton, who had assisted iu the resniej work, as soon as possible. Aside from severe chills the horce were found to be uninjured. If they recover from the chill, the damage bv the accident will be slight, only two straps having been cut to release them, and the wagon being raised to the street again with pnlk'V blocks, unscathed. Ihe horses weigh altout .1,110 pounds and are valued at more than $400. HAD ACHES AND PAINS ALL OVER This New Hampshire Woman Wants Others to Know of Remedy That Helped Her. "I was so run down and weak that I had aches and pains all over my body," says Mrs. Joseph Cormier of No. 17 George street, Dover, N. II. "I always had that tired feeling and was without ambition. I suffered a great deal from nervousness, especial ly at night and my sleep was affected. My head ached at times so that I was nearly wild with the pain. I was just able to drag myself around and it seemed as though my work would never be done. Food didn't taste good and did not strengthen me and I had to force myself to eat. "I had heard a great deal about Dr. L Williams Pink Pills and after I had tried other medicines without getting any relief I got a box of the pills. I saw a big change in my condition after I had taken the remedy fe a week. My headaches stopped so quick ly that "i could hardly believe it. I continued taking the pills and grew stronger from week to week nntil I was as well as ever. My nerves are strong and I no longer feel weak but have plenty of energy and ambition. I can honestly recommend Dr. Wil liams' Pink Pills to everyone in need of a tonic." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills suit most people's needs because they nre non alcoholic and they really build up the blood and strengthen the nerves. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are nsefi.l for growing children and for men and women whose nervous energy has been overdrawn. A little book, "Diseases of the Nerv ous System," will be sent free to any address upon request. It contains a large amount of iiceful information.

The rapid propagation of smells no ticed in the open air appears due en tirely to currents, since in small tubes, where currents do not esist, tlio rate is found to lie very small. Kxperi ments alonir this line were first under taken in Kngland by Prof. Ayrton and additional data have been reported in this country. With ammonia diffusing through a tube aliout a yard and a half long. over two hours elapsed before the smell could be detected at the other end of the tube. I'sinjr different lenjrths of tubinp, it was found that the time required for the diffusion of the smell was roughly proportioned to the square of the length. Ammonia and hydrogen sulphide were used for these experi ments. The presence of ammonia could lie detected chemically at a point in a tube about the same time as when the sense of smell was used for a detector, The rate of propagation of the smell of ammonia was not markedly different when this had to pass along the same tube either horizontally or vertically upward or vertically downward. With camphor, however, while the rates horizontally and downward were almut the same, the speed upward was about twice as great. Ihe smell given to iron and brass by rubbing these with the fingers also waa tried, but gave no definite results. New York Herald. , WASHING! ON Notice to Taxpayers.
