Ot-ncraiiy the disease runs its course within two years. Ir rurely takes longer to bring th-; victim to the grave, thoikrh some few cases are known where death was fought oil for a longer period. But dissolution is in evitable. No remedy lias yet been found that will stav the disease. Even if the patient is taken in hand at the earliest possi ble stage, nothing, so far as known at pres ent, can save him. Decay can be made more gradual, but it ts inevitable. As the disease progresses it is pitiable to watch the victim. The power of articulation tecomes weaker with each day, until, finally, tlvo patient can only stutter out his words painfully with the greatest effort. Walking becomes more and more laborious. Tbe limbs totter umlr the body, and at last he requires the assistance of an attendant if the patient ants to get arxtut. The face assumes brutal appearance. All tbe muscles of the body are atticted with a painful tremor, the hands particular v, twitching constantly The mind is tilled with the most wonderful illusion; So matter bow low tbe paretic may be he is supremely happy. His surroundings are nothing to him. Though he may know that he is in an insane asylum, that he is consid ered hopelessly crazy by the people about im, he feels that the delusion is theirs, and uot even th fact that he is restrnmed of his liberty can make bun unhappy. To him mil lions are nothing. He has magnificent houses, countless servants, and on his death bed be will invite you with a ghastly hospi tality to ride tbe broad seas with him in his golden ships. In hideous mockery of his physical and mpntal decrepitude the im of paresis is always of robust appearance. As the disease progresses in its ravages his body grows fat, and to the inexperienced eye he seems, when in repose, a magnificent spe cimen of manhood. His appetite is never Hugging and bis powers of digestion are mar velous. The disease affects only the higher nervous system, and leaves the nerves of the lower order unimpaired. All the involun tary functions of the body are carried on without interruption just as though the pa tient were in perfect health. Po man who leads a model life is bkely to have general paresis," said Dr. H hanks, super intendent of tbe Kings County Insane asylum, to a reporter of The Press. Can no man who does not dissipate be at tacked with itf "I won't say that, by any means. There may l other causes. In the first place, tbe disease is hereditary. The person afflicted with it may lead a perfect life and still be come a victim of paresis, because he has been tainted from the father or mother's side. Besides, dissipation is not necessarily meant j when we speak of a man not leading a model : lifa Take the Wall street brokers, for in stance. Many of them die from paresis brought on by the constant excitement and whirl in which they live. Lack of rest and improper hours will produce it; worrying will bring it on, and serious business troubles often cause it. Because a man has general paresis it does not follow that his has been a bad life. But a man who lives fast is far more liable to contract the disease than any one else." 'To what is it door 'A general breaking down of the higher nervous system, caused by a wasting away and shrinking of the brain. After death the paretic's bram has the appearance of a cheese when you cut into it There are small round boles oil through the gray matter. Then are caused by tbe shrinking." 'How do you account for the increase ts the disease of late years!1 "Partly because it is so much better known end understood, and cases formerly incor- rectlv diagnosed are now properly classified, and partly, also, because it is rapidly and constantly on the increase with the increase of fast life. That its existence is mainly due to fast living is evident from the fact that in the country general parous is unknown. It is only in the large cities, where opportunities for dissipation abound, that it has a foothold, and it is here that it is on the increase, w New York Press. Girls Comfortably Aeated at Desks Ra pidity of the Workers, Leaving the offices I went to the fourth floor, where the cigarette is rolled. On enter ing tbe long room I was pleasantly surprised. The appearance was rather that of a public school than a large manufacturing establish ment. Four hundred girls were at work seated at what appeared to be desks. These were set in rows of six, five being occupied by operators who roll the cigarettes and the sixth by a "clipper" who cuts off the ragged ends of the tobacco. Each girl sat in a com- fortablo chair, and all materials were brought them, so they lose no time in going for new work. Attached to the front of these "desk tables" is a long, narrow box, which has two compartment!. In one of these is placed the tobacco for use, and into the other are dropped the cigarettes as soon as made. From here they are taken to the clipper, who cuts the ends evenlv and sends them down to the packers. On the right of each girl is a square of marble, a sponge filled with pasle, and a tiny wooden paddle; on the left a pile of litt le squares of rice paper. The tobacco is in the box in front. The rice paper is the product of a famous French establishment. These requisites for work are constantly replenished from wooden carta on iron wheels, which are pushed along the broad aisles by stalwart negro men. The completed work is carried away by similar carts, hven with all materials so conveniently placed. the rapidity with which these girls do their work is almost incredible, Ihoy take the rice paper and lay upon it the tobacco, and in a trice roll it into a firm, compact cigar ette. Lifting it to their lips, with a little puff of breath they blow up the edge of the paper, apply the paste with the paddle, and with a qui'-k stroke of the finger securely fas ten this edge. This completes the cigarette. and it is tossed aside to be carried to thf tipper." It is extremely dainty work, and some of the g iris are quite graceful in the use of their hands. Each employe is furnished with a card, and for every thousand papers received from the desk gets a hole punched in this can I. Xhus her work for the day is reeordeiL A Her" receives sixty cents per thousand cigarettes. Ibis does not seem high pay. but. as any steady, industrious girl can roll 2.000 daily, it affords a mean of making a comfortable support with no hard labor, an1 on Iv respect and consideration received.

But," he cxlded, "the simplicity of the meth ods used is the reason that makes it so hard to discover the robber. It is often the case in postofHce robberies, as in many others. that opportunity makes the thiol. A clerk or messenger may handle a cer tain pouch for a number of years and at last. perhaps by accident, notice how a valuable package may be taken and no trace left be hind. If he happens to bo a little weak minded and the temptation proves too great. he commits what may be his first crime. So toe difficulty in detecting mail robbers is that each one is different from all tho others, and the detectives are obugod to learn a new lesson in each case. Of course, this does not apply to coses where a dishonest clerk syste matically steals small amounts from letters, j Clerks who do that are not only dishonest, but foclith, for such thefts are easily de tected.

Physicians have, for the sake of convenience and for tbe purpose of indicating its most strongly marked forms, subdivided it into intermittent and bilious remittent fever, dumb ague antj ague cake. But it prevents an infinite variety of symptoms in different indi viduals. Be these symptoms what they will, always remember that Hoe tetter's Stomach Bitters will annihilate them at the outset, and prevent their recurrence. A. review of tbe proofs would convince any one of tbe fact. This, however, is impossible because they are too Bnmer- ous, and unnecessary because the effects of this grand anti-malarial specific are a matter of common knowledge. No leas familiar to tbe public are its remedial and preventive effects in bilious attacks. constipation, dyspepsia, incipient rheu matism, debility and kidney troubles.
