The Abocs nd La Salle and td joining Illinois conn ties are at present dodging a smooth swindler who represents him self as hailing from New York in the interests ot a paper pattern firm. In one place he succeeded in placing a $109 contract, and after collecting his commission in advance, departed for greener fields. At least 90 per cent of the women who order luncheon at restaurants will call for chicken salad; 75 per cent for hot rolls and tea, and all of them for ice cream or sherbert, bnt the strangest combination all is that of tea or coffee and ice cream or sherbert. It is not a rery substan tial meal, bat many restaurants have had orders like that. Hebe is the manner id which Henry Watterson treats the tirade of Senator Tillman In the senate last week: 'The south bows its head in shame says Tillman, of Sooth Carolina. The south does well to bow her head in shame when she sees a foul-mouthed ruffian and com mon alanderer speaking from the seat made Illustrious bj the incum bency of John C Calhoun: when she beholds a man combining in one the apparently contradictory characters .01 a vulgar tyrant and a blatant an archist figuring as one ot the suc cessors of Robert Y. Hayne. The south has abundant reason to be ashamed of Tillman." In Watersoo and Tillman, it may be said, we have tne two extremes or soutnern pro duct, the silver tongue of noble soul stirring inspiration, and the putna oreatn or contaminated in. stinct.

Borne of the present methods resorted to in the mining of copper are said to hare very intimate relation with the great success characterising the prod no tive value of that motal in certain prom inent localities. Conspicuous among these methods is the avoidance of a scrap of waste, even the water, by pre cipitation, being made to yield value that comes in the form of a precipitate carrying from 73 to 83 per cent copper. The practicability of this precipitation of the waters is said to nave been dis covered in a very peculiar way and by means of experiments that were of a very crude character; tne first toini tiate the matter being a miner who was without experience or knowledge in re spect to the chemical relations of the metals, bnt who casually ascertained that b tin can or piece of iron thrown into the channel through which the waste water was discharged would at tract the copper contained in the water and save at least a large percentage of it and so, in a short time, as the result of experiments, it was found that every drop of water discharged by the mines was capable of being handled to advan tage for the metal contained in it. In word, this being nothing lees than a thorough solution of copper, run. siing steadily so many inches a day, the volume being raised Into tanks, charged With scrap iron and salt; from tank to tank the volume goes until it passes through a circuit of them, over iron and through flaming, before it is let off, aft er which it is as clear as coal oil. The contents of the water are now settled in the tanks, and one after another a tank is cut out of the circuit, the iron re moved, the copper hammered off. sort' ed and shipped. It is through this that tne least particle of copper is saved. i . Meat P sate Baaf oa KagUak Coast. The Manacles rocks, situated about midway between Falmouth Boa dated and the Lizard point, are considered the most dan (reruns point on our English coast These rocks cover a considerable psoa and extend seaward about three miles from tha fVMlt It trrw aaaSM their bold and sharp spurs, jutting out un are to oe seen stretching right cross ue natural direction for a ship to take in making foe Falmouth.

Ever? winter, and. sonjeti,es tt summer months,' fearful wrecu rase place on these rocks, attended with con siderable loss of life. These disasters take place at night, when it is probable that the men in charge of a ship are un certain of their position. There is a large bell placed between two and three miles out at sea to warn vessels of dan ger. Bnt during a stormy and windy night it most surely be most difficult to catch the sonnd of this bell, particular ly so if the wind carries the sound away from the ship passing these rocks. Lon don Standard. "Goo Koraiaa" la Saanoa. I bad to go down to Apia five or six different times, and each time there were 100 black boys to say "Good morning" ta This was rather a tedious business, and, as verv few of them an swered at all, and those who ' did only witn a grunt like a pig s, it was several times in my mind to give up this niece of politeness. The last time I went down I was almost decided ; but when I came to the first pair of black boys, and saw them looking so comic and so melancholy, I began the business over again. This time I thought more of them seemed to answer, and when I got down to the tail end where the carts were running, I received a very pleas ant surprise, for one of the boys, who was pushing at the back of a cart, lilt ed up his Lead, and culled out to me in wonderfully good English, "Yon good man always say good morning." It was sad to think that these poor crea tures should think so much of so small a piece ot civility, and strange that (think ing so) they should be 60 dull as not to return it Robert Louis Stevenson in St Nicholas. - Homo's Attempts to Ea Modern The tendency in Rome has of late been toward the artificial, and it is a refresh ment to come upon some untouched por tion of what is good as well as pic turesque. The attempt to produce a modern capital at all hazards and costs has told upon the population as well as upon the city itself. For at great ecu tore the first result of modern civilization is vice, and the next is degeneracy. It is really quite useless to ignoro the fact in print, when it is perfectly apparent to every man in his senses. Italy is no worse than other countries, but neither is she an exception to the general rule, and since the most necessary institutions ot civilization are prisons and hospital!!. it is to Italy's credit that she should have spent as much as she has upon them in the midst of so much utterly senseless extravagance in other direc tions. Marion Crawford in Century. Women In Indiana. The legal rights of women are no where in the Union more liberal than in the state of Indiana. In a recent address by a lawyer before the Woman's club in Indianapolis these were thus formulated "Since 1881 a married woman may hold real or personal property tho same as if she were unmarried. She is now per mitted to becomo surety or indorser for hex husband, or any other person. She may carry on any trado or taf iness and perform any labor or service on her sen arato account, and is entitled to her sep arate earnings. Her legal condition is one of comparative freedom and inde pendence. The policy of the law in re cent years has been to remove her dis abilities and at the same time to pro tect ber from the machinations of those who might seek to take advantage of ner inexperience and of her willingness to sacrifice everything material for the take of .those she loves. The Xew Woman. Miss Susan H. Nixon, editor of The Truth Seeker, says: The new woman knows that the world moves, and she moves with it. The old woman sought her husband's intelligence. The new says, "He doesn't know any more than L " She marries for love or nothing ; she doesn't care for b title ; she is all self satisfying with her Liatin, (Jreek, ber law, her medicine.

INTENSE SUFFERING From Dyspepsia and Stomach Trouble. Instantly Relieved and Per manently Cured by Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. A New Discovery, But Not a Patent Medicine. Dr. Bedwell relates an interesting account of what he considers a re markable cure of acute stomach trou ble and chronic dyspepsia by the use of the new discovery, Stuart's Dys pepsia xaDiets. lie says: The patient was a man who had suffered to my knowledge for years with dyspepsia. Every thing be ate seemed to sour and create acid and gases in the stomach; he Bad pains like rheumatism in tne back, shoulder blades and limbs, fullness and distress after eating. poor appetite and loss of flesh; tha heart became affected, causing palpi tation and sleeplessness at night. l gave him powerful nerve tonics and blood remedies, but .to no pur pose. As an experiment I fin all? bought a 60-cent package of Stuart's Dyspepsia 1 ablets at a drug store and gave them to him. Almost im mediate relief was given and after he bad used four boxes he was to all appearances fully cured. mere was no more acidity or sour watery risings, no bloating after meals, tne appetite was vigorous and ne has gained 'between 10 and 12 pounds in weight of solid, healthy nesn. Although Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab lets are advertised and sold in drug stores yet I consider them a most valuable addition to any physician's une oi remedies, as tney are perfect ly narmiess and can be given to chil dren or invalids or in any condition ot the stomach with perfect safety. being harmless and containing noth ing but vegetable and :ruit essences. pure pepsin and Uulden beal. Without anv question they are the safest, most effective cure for indi gestion, biliousness, constipation and all derangements of the stomach however slight or severe. btuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are made by the Stuart company, of oiarsnaii. Alien., and sold by drug gists everywhere at 50 cents per pacitage. ... , . ... The Bales of Hla Life. Ex-Congressman John S. Wise of Vir ginia tells me this stcry : Immediately after the war a promi nent Republican, having in view an in vestment in Virginia, went to Madison Court House in that state with Frederick Douglass as a traveling companion. Their business brought them in contact with a certain Colonel Dinwiddie, a Virginia gentleman of the old school. Mr. Wise's friend said: "Colonel Dinwiddie, allow me to in troduce my friend, Mr. Frederick Doug loss. You must have heard of him. " The colonel put his hands behind him as Mr. Douglass stepped forward, and extended his. "Douglass," said the Virginian, "I am glad to see you. But you will ex cuse me; I have made it a rule of my life never to shake hands with niggers. " "Oh, certainly," said Douglass. am an ex-slave and I know the preju dices of the old slave owners." There was some further conversation. and then Douglass said to the courtly son of the Old Dominion : "By the way, colonel, we are just going ta taken drink. Will you join us?" The old gentleman hesitated, cleared his throat and then replied : "Well, Douglass, I have made it an other rule of my life never to refuse to take a drink. I don't mind if I do. " Chicago Times-Herald. The Discovery Saved Hla Ufa. G. Caillouette, druggist. Beavers ville, 111., says: "To Dr. King's New Discovery I owe my life. Was taken with la grippe and tried all the phy. sicians for miles about, but of no avail, and was given up and told could not live. Having Dr. King's New Discovery in my store, I sent for a bottle and began its use, and from the first dose began to get bet ter, and after using three bottles was up and about again.

I can see him now driving off with those glaring reins hanging loose ly over the horse's back."
