The change of lifo coming to a woman near her forty fourth year, cither makes her an invalid or jrives her a new lease on life. Those who meet this chango in ill health sel dom live ten years afterward, while a woman who lays aside the active duties of womanhood in health sel dom fails to live on in happiness, years after eh'e has passed 60. This is truly a critical time. Mrs-. Laura S. Webb, of Toledo, Ohio, recognizes the change of lifo as a dangerous period and she also has faith in Wine of Cardui. She writes : "As I had always been troubled more or less at the menstrual period, I dreaded Ifrt. Laura S. Wtbb. 3 the change of life which was fast approaching. Vhile vis iting with a friend I noticed that she was taking your Vine of Cardui, and she was so enthusiastic about it &at I decided to try a bottle. I ex perienced some relief the first month, so I kept on taking it for three months and now I menstruate with no pain and I shall take it off and on now until I have passed the climax. I do not dread it now, as I am sure that your Vine of Cardui will be of great benefit at this time." Wine of Cardui is the remedy to re-inforce a woman against the shock that comes with the change of life. It re-establishes healthy functions after years of suffering. In doing this it has saved thousands of suf ferers just in time. Do not wait until suffering is upon you. Thor ough preparations should bo made in advance. Begin the Wine of Cardui treatment today.

In this enlightened acre, it is a SHAME FOR ANY CASK OF PILES TORE CUT. It is wholly unnecessary for the patient to go into a hospital, take chloroform ami lie in a ward for weeks, under the inrl uence cf opiates. These crude methods will soon bo relegated to the rear, by a newer and more humane treat ment, which cures without endansrerirg life, is !es expensive, and it is only in exceptional cases that it interferes with the daily pursuits of the paticrit while under treatment. PILES like other diseases of the rectum are usually neglected, because the patient regards this trouble as not being important or havinsr no bearing- on the general health. This is a very great mis take, as nothing- w ill uii'lertnine the physical health of the patient so quii-kly ns a bad case of piles, affecting-, a it does, first, the nervous svstem. then the bowels, and in turn the digestive organs. Piles, fis tula and all diseases of the rectum are treated on a jMititive guaran tee, the patient takes no chance. Do not waste any more time try ing" salves ami .ointments. . . The method of treatment removes the tumors absolutely; it never fails, but it is' no salve preparation. It cannot be sent, for it must be in the hands of a skilled physician; therefore, patients must come to the office to receive treatment.

A former distinguished senator, and a man who died poor although he spent his entire life -in public affaire, once told a very interesting story of how his vote was sold without Lis knowl edge. Possibly other senatorial votes hare been sold in a like manner. In n Pullman car one day tbe sen ator renewed the acquaintance of a prominent railroad man he bad met In Washington and who, he knew, was in terested In a land grant bill which had become a law and had received the senator's support. -"Well, your bill got through ail right." remarked tbe senator, "though you were so very uneasy about It." "We had a right to be uneasy," re sponded the railroad man. "In these times of antlrailroad sentiment many public men fear to vote for a railroad bill." "Well, I voted for It because it was a Just measure, and no amount of prej udice would have scared me," remark ed the senator. "Oh, yes, we knew we had your vote," the railroad mau remarked, with a peculiar look. "How did you know it?" asked the senator sharply. "Because we paid $5,000 for it," an swered the railroad man firmly. The senator gasped, got hfs breath, demanded an explanation and the par ticulars of the affair then came out. It developed that when this bill was pending the railroad man received in formation that there was danger of Its being defeated and came to Washing ton to see about it. Soon after his ar rival he met a man whom he knew slightly as a legislative promoter, and a number of senators said to be doubt ful were named; but, added the pro moter, their votes could be bad for a consideration.' The price of this par ticular senator was fixed at $5,000. "Now, he Is, a little peculiar about these things," said the promoter, "and you bad better let me see him first. Then later in the day you can call on him and see if he promises his vote." It seems that this promoter did call on the senator and mentioned the rail road bill and said that there was a man In the city who would be glad to know that the senator would support the bill and might call later and bear him sny so "Oh. yes." said the senator, "it Is a good bill, and I'll vote for It, but I have no time to bother with this man." Nevertheless, in the afternoon the railroad man and his friend were ushered into the senator's committee room, and the promoter said: "Senator, this Is the gentleman I spoke to you about this morning in terested in that land grant bill. He will be glad to know it Is all right." "Yes, It's all right," said the senator. "The bill ought to pass. and. as I said this morning, I am going to support it" The Incident apparently closed until renewed afterward upon the train. "Upon the strength of that inter-1 view," said the railroad man, "we paid that promoter $o,ooo for your vote." "Well, it's needless for me to say I never knew anything about It. But. tell me, why did you go about any thing of that kind? Why didn't you come to me first, without negotiation, and find out bow I stood and what I would do?" "Well, we were so scared we didn't take any chances on anything." was the reply. Telling the story afterward, the sen ator sald:,"I bad often looked at some of my colleagues whose reputations had been Impugned and asked myself, 'Are they knaves or fools?' but after this Incident, when I felt like criticis ing a fellow member for being a knave and taking money for his vote, or placed in a position where he was sus pected of It, and therefore a fool, I would check myself, as some one might be asking. 'To which class do you be long? Washington Tost. . AN AFRICAN ADVENTURE. Paul da CTiailla'n First Encounter With sv Monster Oortlla. In his "Explorations and Adventures In Equatorial Africa" Paul du Chaillu tells of Lis first encounter with a go rilla. "We saw an immense one coming straight toward us 'out of tbe woods,' be wrote. "As be came be gave vent to terrible howls of rage, as much as to say, 'I am tired of being pursued and will face you.' "It was- a lone male, the kind which is always the most ferocious. This fel low made the woods resound with bis roar, which is an awful sound, resem bling the muttering of distant thunder, He was about twenty yards oil when we first saw him. I was about to take aim and bring him down where be stood when my most trusted man, Ma- laonen, stopped me, saying in a whis per, 'Not time yet." "We stood in silence, gun in band. The gorilla looked at us for a minute or so, then beat bis breast with his gigantic arms and what arms be had!- then gave another howl of defiance and advanced upon us. How hor."ibIe he looked ! " 'Not yet,' whispered Malaonen. "Again the gorilla made an advance upon us. Now he was not twelve yards off. His face was distorted with rage. His huge teeth were ground against each other so that we could hear the sound. The skin of the forearm was drawn forward and backward rapidly, making his hair move up and down and givlug a fiendish expression to his hideous face. Again he roared, a sound which shook the woods like thunder. It seemed as if I could feel the earth trembling under my feet. The beast. looking us in the eye and beating his breast, advanced again. 'Don't fire too soon, said Malaonen. If you don't kill him he will kill you.' "This time he came within eight yards of us before he stopped. I was breathing fast with excitement as I watched the- huge1 creature. Malaonen only said, 'Steady! as the gorilla came up. When he stopped Malaonen said: 'Now!' "Ami before the beast could utter the roar for which be was opening his mouth three musket balls were in his body. He fell dead, almost without a struggle." PITH AND POINT. Laugh when a friend tells a joke. It is one of the taxes you must pay. reople who visit the cemetery a good deal gossip alout the monuments. About the only thing a man will al low his wife to have a monopoly of is patience. It is natural for a man who was once In the harness to imagine he is still a fire horse. A mau may not be able to manage his own affairs, but he will give you advice about yours. Those riding in carriages are not as happy and comfortable as those on foot think thoy are. These things that are cooked in a chafing dish late at night taste terribly like crape ou the door. Atchison Globe. Roatn For Waterproof. Rosin is used to form waterproof paper for use in butchers shops, fish markets and also for building pur poses, and, strange to say, this Im provement reduces the cost of the pa per. All methods of applying rosin in solution after the paper is finished add heavily to its cost and also render it very brittle, but If the rosin is dis solved In potash and mixed with tbe pulp in the beating engine and this alkali afterward treated with alum it becomes neutralized and washed away, leaving the finely " diffused rosin throughout the whole mass. It Is also used for protecting the coarser manufactured products, such as agricultural implements, against rust by mixing It in a solution with benzine. This is applied as varnish, and the benzine rapidly dries away, leaving a coat which protects the ma terial until it goes to the severe service of actual use. Engineering. The Walmsairo Geyser. The great Walmangu geyser in the north island of New Zealand Is sur rounded by hills from COO to 500 feet high, all covered with volcanic debris from the terrible Tararewa eruption in JSSS, when tbe mountain of that name exploded, causing destruction and havoc for miles, including the loss of two native villages with their Inhabit ants close, upon 100 lives. This val ley Is throughout In a constant state of geyser action. Everywhere tbe ground is covered with "blowholes" and pools. the hot, sulphurous water with steam bubbling up at numerous points. Erup tions take place without any special prelude. The imprisoned forces of na ture, with seemingly oc j gigantic, con centrated effort, shoot up an immense and terrible mass of water, redhot lava and stones to tbe height of from 400 to ljO0 feet, spreading in all directions, covering frequently the hills around. Joint Affliction. When the Halliday twins were ba bies their mother always referred to them collectively. This was natural enough, for they shared everything, from their baby carriage to chicken pox. As they grew a little older, however, there were slight difference between Elnora and Eudora, but Mrs. Halliday took no account of them. When they had reached the age of seven, she still referred to them in a way which struck casual listeners as amusing. "Where are Elnora and Eudora?" asked a cousin, who had come to spend the afternoon. "The twins have gone with their fa ther to have one of their teeth out," said Mrs. Halliday calmly.

Rendtnjr the Line ut the Wrtaf. The rascette, or magic bracelet, is. according to authorities on palmistry. to be found at the base of the hand and forms the line or lines which mark the junction of hand and wrist, One such line, if unbroken, deep and strongly marked, is supposed to fore tell a happy life and to indicate calm ness of disposition. If the line is chained that is, crossed and recrossed by numerous small lines the indica tion Is of a life of 'labor. Two such lines indicate happiness and long life, while three form the magic bracelet. adding great riches to the other bless ings. The addition of the third line to the other two Is rare. , : WIif the Apple la Healthful. The acids of the apple are of signal use for men of sedentary habits w hose lives are sluggish in action, those acids serving to eliminate from the body noxious matters which, if retained. would make the brain heavy and dull or bring about jaundice or skin erup tions and other allied troubles. Some such experience must have led to our custom of taking apple sauce with roast pork, rich goose and like dishes. Roaalnt'a Reminder. King Louis of Portugal years ago promised to send llossini a pipe of port of a vintage of which specimens have only been preserved in the royal cellars. Tbe wine did not arrive, but the maestro was not a man to allow a promise to be forgotten. Accordingly he took up bis pen and indited to his Portuguese majesty the following re minder: "You promised mc some port wine, sire, and it has not' arrived. Your majesty has certainly not forgot ten your promise, for sovereigns never forget, but allow me to remind you that I am old and that at my age there is no time to be lost." Mortified to Death.
