It is a fact that women who suffer from female complaints and are consequently wesk. tired, nervous, dragged-out and full of pains and aches, do not have the same opportunity to be cured as do the residents of the great cities where the most successful specialists In female dis eases reside. Dr. Greene, of 35 West 14' h St., New York City, whr has the largest practice In the world, and who is without riotiht the most successful specialist in curing female compl -tints, offers to give free consultation by mall to all woruen suff-rlng from these dlstresslig weak nesses, discharges, pains and Irregulari ties.

Vtm Raw any Epeciai tnongnc a significance tnat makes it always thereafter an object of particular interest. The East river fer- ryboats impress me in that way now whenever I see one, and this was brought about simply by seeing one of them ont of its accustomed waters amid strange scenes and put to strange uses. "This was in the fall of 1861, in Hampton Roads. The regiment that I served in was aboard a transport there, waiting witn other troops afloat there to go farther south under convoy of a fleet of war vessels. There was a great number of vessels there of all kinds, steamers and sailing vessels and war ships, and they made an impressive show, but certainly the most striking of any one of them on its first appearance was an East river ferryboat, the Com modore Perry. I can see ber at this min ute as she looked then, moving across the waters of the Roads ; she looked so utterly strange and curious there and amid such surroundings. But she went here and there with the most perfect ennfidpnen. rnnstantlv nmnlnvad in transnnrtinn- atnrna anil trnona and t.f nnitft mnrh t homA " , j . . . ., onrrenis ana eaaies oi me narrow jutst river. "Other ferryboats were taken down boat, carrying two parrott guns, one at each end, mounted in the gangways, where the teams drive in and out. My own impression is that one or two of these boats went around Hatteras, into waters farther south ; but, however that may be, I shall never forget the first time I saw the Commodore Perry at Fortress Monroe, and to this day I never go along Uouth street without a feeling of the keenest personal interest for every ferryboat I see on the river. -New York Sun. Stanley's Cat. As the bonds of friendship are strengthened by a heavy affliction so . does a prolonged sojourn ina foreign places, amid strange scenes, turn the most common of everyday sights at home into lnxnriea A magazine tells a story of Henry M. Stanley, who, after his return from Africa, was bu&ily en gaged in writing his story of the "Dark I rVntintit He used to spread his reference maps upon the floor of his room, and on this particular day, after searching in his near neighborhood for a chart which he much needed, he spoke to his assistant, who presently descried it near the fire side, with Stanley's favorite cat upon it asleep. He started to turn the intruder off. when the great man interrupted him. saying ; "Never mind; don't disturb the cat. I'll get along without the chart until the cat wakes up. If you only knew how good the sight of that domestic cat curled up in front of that bright Eng lish fire is to me, yon would never chase her away. " The cat slumbered on, and not until she arose with a lazy yawn, scratching her front nails on the rug as she stretched, did the famous explorer reach for his map. The Letter D. The Semitic people called D Daleth, a door or opening, whence the Greek delta. To us in its present form it is not much like a door, as we know, but if the orientals lived in tents shaped like the letter B it is not wonderful they should have doors the shape of a D. Our form 'of the letter is greatly changed from the ancient D, but a glance at the Greek delta, which is a right angle triangle, shows it identical in shape with the triangular tent door closed by flaps of canvas, and when one of these was drawn back a shape was represented which must have been fa miliar to all orientals.

In St. Nicholas is a paper by Julia Taft Bayne on "Willie and Tad Lin coln," who were playmates of Mrs. Bayne 'a brother. Mrs. Bayne gives the following picture of one of their pranks: I went to the White House. As I ap proached I saw that it was standing in deed, but I noticed a strange grin on the face of an orderly holding some horses. Some soldiers louuging near al so wore the same grin, which was in tensified on the countenance of a negro coming down the walk, and this wild grin rippled and spread like a wave as I went on orderlies, soldiers, doorkeep ers, all wore that peculiar smile. I ask ed where the boys were. "Up stairs, miss," the man said, and I heard him chuckle as he turned away. As I came along the upper corridcr Isul appeared. "Oh, Julia, ccme and see our circus 1" he cried when he saw me. "We've got a circus in the attic. We're minstrels. I've got to be blacked up, and Willie can't get his dress on; it's too big. Pin it up, will you? Hurry 1" I took a horrified survey and said: "A circus 1 Does the president know it?" "Oh, yes, he knows it," said Tad. "He doesn't care. He's got somc-sener-al or other in there. Come on, hurry 1" Willie was struggling with the full, long skirt and flounces of a lilac silk I had seen Mrs. Lincoln wear at an after noon reception, while Budd wore a ruf fled morning wrapper which he was pinning up in tillowy festoons. When the boys were nearly ready to go before their "audience," Tad began singing at the top of his voice, "Old Abe Lincoln came out of the Wilder ness." ' ' Hush 1" said Budd. ' 'The president will hear you. " "I den't care if pa does bear, and he don't care either, "said Tad. "We've got to sing that in the shew." And I think he did. But some time after, as Tad was singing a campaign song at our bouse about "Old Abe splitting rails," Willie asked my mother: "Mrs. Taft, ought Tad to sing that song? Isn't it disrespectful to pa?" Tad kicked the chair, as he always did when displeased, and said, "Everybody in this world knows pa used to split rails. " Mamma explained why she thought it in bad taste, and Tad said, "Well, I'll sing about 'John Brown's Body,' then." He always obeyed my mother, though generally so headstrong. I was at their "circus" only a short time. A curtain of sheets pinned to gether was stretched across one side of the attic. Their extensive "repertory" was somewhat mixed, and they did not keep very closely to the programme. Tad as the "Black Statue" was a great success. Every one who paid 1 cent went in, I think, though it said "6 cents'' on the bilL- Servants, orderlies, soldiers, strangers, came and went all day. THE MARINE ENGINEER. Aa Officer With Vast Responsibilities Wbc Seldom Gets Credit.' rrom the time, less than 60 years ago, when the first steam vessel crossed the Atlantic the evolution of the marine engineer has been rapid, but he is the one class of marine craftsman that, above all others, hat. kept pace with the developments of this fast speeding age, and he stands today the most finished product of a century that has created more new types and more new occupa tions than any that has preceded it The marine engineer today is more impor tant than any deck officer, but his im portance is as little recognized by the nonseafanng man as his identity is con cealed from the view of those who trav el in shipa Down in the bowels of the vessel, he controls not only the propul sion, but the steering, lighting, pump ing, anchoring, ventilation of the mod ern marine structure, and on the war ship he is even responsible for the manipulation of heavy guns. The eyes that steer the ship are those of the offi cer of the watch, but the brain that guides the ship to ber destination and regulates her internal economy is the brain of the marine engineer. His is the real responsibility, and, we are afraid, his is the least share of the hon or that is given to those who serve their country or their employers with courage and devotion on the sea. All the world heard of the gallantry of Captain Kane cf the Calliope in working his ship out of the Samoa an chorage in the teeth of a cyclone.

No greater opportunity is afforded the commercial man to exemplify the amenities of business than in a case of distress of his fellow man who has hon estly failed in business. I say honestly failed because there are many such fail ures. These are the times when the commercial vultures descend beside the Christian Samaritan, one as the com mercial gravedigger, the other as the physician with the balm of fellowship and brotherhood. The first will try to will stand and demand that, although it is stipulated in the bond that a pound of flesh shall be forfeited, one extra ounce of blood will cause the loss of that which he might have received. Swedenborg said, "Charity itself con sists in acting justly and faithfully in whatever office, business and employ ment a person is engaged in. " Hard ware A Considerate Rector. The rector of a small country parish in the midlands had lived among his people a simple, unobstrusive life, which had endeared him to the hearts of those who knew him. In very cold weather he would invite the congrega tion to come and warm themselves at the stove before leaving the church. Under other conditions of weather his tboughtfulness for the comfort of his flock took a somewhat different form, and at the end of a half hour's sermon he would sometimes say, "As the weather is still so inclement I will, my dear friends, lengthen my discourse somewhat in the hope that it may clear later. " Cornbill Magazine. Darwin and Tyndall proved what nat uralists before their time suspected, that the air is literally full of plant germs and seeds. x Conflict of Nature and Art. A young, man here in town who it studying drawing I won't say just how or where went out to a Welsh rabbit supper at a friend s studio one evening. The supper was given to cele brate an examination in light and shad ow which several of the young art stu dents had just undergone with success. The young man I speak of was full of the subject. His mind was still dwell ing on it when he started home. Half i an hour later a fellow art student cams) up with him. He was standing befors) an equestrian statue In one of the little parks and was intently studying the shadow of the bronze rider cast by the moon. "Say," Baid he to the other student, "look at that shadow. I've cast lots of shadows and I've studied 'em. That ain't a bit like it I know shadows. That ain't an angle of 45 degrees." Here he took his friend's arm. "Old boy," he said solemnly, "that shadow's all out of drawing." Wash ington Post.

Among the curiosities of medical lit erature are the stories, many of them well authenticated, of the peculiar sus ceptibility of certain unfortunate indi viduals to certain odors and emanations. Among the substances which have been known to have produced attacks of Spasmodic asthma are roses, musk, tea, ipecacuanha, the odor of a cat, fried fish, the dust of oats, malt, rice, feath ers, wool and that caused in the demoli tion of old houses. Dr. Eugene De schamps has added asparagus to this long list. He has published a full clin ical report of a victualer over 40 years of age who suffers from severe spasmod ic attacks of coughing whenever he at tempts to prepare raw asparagus for the cook.

Constant, work and worry weaken the nerves and vitality, and female weakness follows. As a result there is pain, discharges, suppression, irregularities, weak back, inflammations, bearing down, bad taste in the mouth, loss of appetite, faintness, constipation, nervousness, sleeplessness and irritability. Mrs. S. Taylor, of 251 West 17th St., New York City, says : " r or years 1 have been unable to attend to my household duties owing to -severe sickness. I was troubled terribly with female weakness, suppression of the menses for over six years, nervous exhaus tion, sleeplessness and general debility. I had coldness ot limbs and teet. and was in a helpless condition. I feared I should never get well. " I had been under a doctor's care all the time but got no better.
