Who tells you that surgery is the only way by which a bad case of
piles ran be permanently cured:' he may be honest in his opinion, but
be may us lie mistaken. 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

The method of treatment removes the tumors absolutely; it never

How m Senator' Vote Was Sold
' Without 2Ii Knonlrdfff.
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
"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
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

" 'Not yet,' whispered Malaonen.
"Again the gorilla made an advance

His huge teeth were ground against

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.

Joint Affliction.
When the Halliday twins were ba

them collectively. This was natural
enough, for they shared everything,
from their baby carriage to chicken
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.
