Another mode of treating the drink habit is said to be in successful opera tion in Paris where three physicians Drs. Bapelier, Thehanet and Broca announce that thej have discovered a new serum. Of 57 cases treated, 83 were cured and 15 were improved, only 10 failing to show improvement. The serum is obtained from hoises that have been dosed with alcohol until their systems are drenched with the poison. When administered to pa tients' the serum revives natural repug nance to alcohol, which continued use has broken down. How strange it is that a severe mas ter has more faithful servants than a lenient one. ECZEMA'S ITOH IS TORTURE. Eczema is caused by an acid humor in the blood coming in contact with the skin and producing trreat redness and in flammation ; little pustular eruptions form sad discharge a tbin, sticlty fluid, wcicn dries and scales off ; sometimes the skin is hard, dry and fissured. Eczema in any form is a tormenting, stubborn disease, and the itching and burning at times are almost unbearable ; the acid burning humor seems to ooze out and set the skin on fire. Salves, washes nor other exter nal applications do any real good, for as long as the poison remains in the blood it will keep the skin irritated.

Trains start at 12 o'clock, and then somebody is said to be mar ried at that hour, but, as a rule, though it may be 12 when the cars start, it is "high noon" when the clergyman makes his declaration tir ami about the waiting couple.

Just so, while now aud then some people arc married," it is expected of them either that they shall be "1111110(1 In marriage" or in the "holy bonds of matrimony" or else be "jojued in wedlock." Aud weddings are not alone iu their stilted phraseol ogy. Take funerals. Generally we are told that the "sol emn burial service" of the Kpiscopal church was used. This is always a re lief. Friends might have selected the humorous service of some other church or have had service for baptisms of in fants, and, when it is made clear that they had a solemn and a burial service at a funeral you realize that they have, done the proper thing by the one who has "passed away." That phrase recalls the story they tell of the late aud much-estcOnied Judge Pardee, of the Supreme Court and of Hartford. Some lawyer, speaking of in expected witness, said he had passed away. "Died, sir," said the judge. "In this court people die, not pass away."

Of all the cities of the world the rich est iu monuments is probably Berlin, even now, and if there is another city which can boast of more mouuments than Berlin's sixty-three it is destined to be distanced by the German capital within a few years. For wheu the Avenue of Victory shall have been adorned with all the statues iu contem plation aud when the monuments to Bismarck, You Moltke and the Emper or Frederick shall have been completed, the "Athens by the Spree," as the Ber liners lots to call their city,- will pos sess not far from 100 monuments to de- eased worthies. As might be expect d, the names on some of the monu ments would have fallen into oblivion jut for them. A few of the really great men have two monuments apiece, and one of them, Frederick the Great, is tonored with three monuments in dif ferent parts of the city. It Is worthy of note that the scientist Helmholtz though recently dead, has already had two statues erected in his honor, one in front of the university, :he other on the Potsdam bridge. In view of the military traditions of Prus sia, it Is rather surprising that of the completed monuments thirty-two are of civilians aud only twenty-nine of military men. The remaining two are of women. Queen Louise and Empress Augusta. Schiller was the first civil ian to obtain a monument. An inter esting statue !s that of .lahn, the father of turning and turnvereins. The figure stands or a mound, the stone of which were sent from all parts of Germany, aid even from America. Among the others to whom Berlin has erected monuments are Goethe, Lu ther, the two Humboldts, Lessing, the scientists Siemens, Gauss and Roent gen (the discoverer of the X-rays), and the poets Chamlsso.

Among the collections of Indian relic; ;wned in Connecticut piobabiy tue fin- st, with one exception, is owned bj Herbert Sothmayd, who lives in tht own of Durham. A large part of then were found by Mr. Southmayd himself as he is, a confirmed relic hunter ant knows many of the caves and camp ing grounds used by the tribes of tin State. White flint, black flint, lost juartz, red and "yellow jasper, lime stone and glass stone were the stones used in the manufacture of 3,000 ar row heads, varying from the size of i thumb nail to those nearly as large ai a hand. His axes include the tine ,'dged, highly pol.shed tool to the rough unfinished specimens. He has thirty af these, one of which weighs sever pounds, while the smallest turns tin scales at sixteen ounces. Of his eleven pestles the longes. measures fourteen and a half inches ir. length. Gouges used by the Indian? iu working out the inside of logs which they had first charred, In making their canoes, number twenty. There are ten tine specimens of adze and twelve chisels. Of his three pipes tht one he values most highly is short stemmed, perfect bowled and was found a few miles from his home. II looks much like a common clay pipe of today excepting the color, which is that of red clay. The breast-plates are notched around the edges, a notch fot each battle the wearer was engaged iu. On one of them can be counted sixty five notches, denoting either a chieftaii or one much given to lighting. There are three war club heads and a dozen hide scrapers used in cleaning the hides from which their clothing and tents were made. Among the mosl Interesting specimens to the ordinary man and which cause a peculiar sen sation as their use is explained are the three scalping kiiives. A string ol wampum was taken from a skeleton found in Portland. A red clay kettle is absolutely perfect. A bone orna ment found in a cave is considered val uable, as but few of them are In exis tence.

Thert Is very little in a Korean house that car burn, except sliding doors and win lows, and a few articles of furniture and clothing. Generally the unlucky owner whose house catches fire endeavors to pull 11 down: that is. after. he has carried intt the street whatever property he cares to save. When several houses at onct are in danger the King sends out a hundred or so soldiers, who calmly view the bonfire, and offer help, if nec essary. There Is no water to work with, so these helpers generally bring along with them a ship's anchor, fas tened to a long, thick rope; this anchot they fix to the burning beam, then it is 'a long pull, a strong pull, and a pull all together." Sometimes the sparks, driven by the wind, fly across the road; then tht Koreans climb up on their roofs, and stand in rows upon the upper edges ol the structure. You will wonder what the object of this strange proceeding may be. Now the men quickly strir. off their coats and the women follow suit with their large cloaks. These thej wave rapidly together, in order tc create a strong counter breeze to th one blowing. One can almost imagine the Koreans to be strange birds, flapping their wings preparatory to taking their flight Into the upper regions. While these 5dd proceedings are going on, prayers ar offered to the spirit of the fire, as well as to that of the wind. A Gentle Suggestion. The neighbors on both side had come over in Simpson's front yard, and were making remarks about passers-by and carrying on a desultory conversation. "The cause of the present hard times," suddenly said Simpson loudly, "is caused by women knocking men out of employment in shops, factories, stores, etc. When you stop and con sider the thing, one can't help but won der why they should be big enough fools to do this." "Probably it's because they becomt tired waiting for men to do something," gently suggested Mrs. Simpson. The shoe must have fit Simpson, foi Mr. Banks slyly nudged his wife and Simpson was silent for an unusually long time. Indianapolis Sun. A Hypnotic Cure. A New Haven clergyman seriouslj proposes to cure boys of the cigarettt habit by hypnotism. He has been a deep student of psychological problems and has conducted a number of experi ments in the laboratories of Yale Uni versity. He took one boy who was weak-minded from excessive smoking and put him under hypnotic influence. Then a strong lecture on the evils ol the boy's habit followed. It Is claimed that the subject Is permanently cured. Mushroom Crop. The annual crop of mushrooms In France is valued at $2,000,000, and ther are sixty wholesale firms in Paris deal ing exclusively in them.

The average man likes to point to th good traits in bis children as a heritage from himself. STUDIED WITH KWANG HSU. Fellow Student of the Chinese Emperor Visit. San Francisco. Leung Kal Tin. a fellow-student of Emperor Kwang Hsu of China, is In San Francisco. Even to see the Em peror Is a rare privilege, denied the great majority of the almond-eyed. The fortunate Celestial who rubs elbows with his majesty is singularly honored by his countrymen. But he who breaks through the sacred inner circle and lives in dsily communication with the Emperor ijf China is almost a divinity to the h&li a thousand million less for tunate subjects. Such a dignitary is Leung Kal Tin. who owea the proud privilege of hll personal communication with the Em peror Kwang Hsu to the fact that he is a pupil of Kang Yu Wei, greatest of Chinese scholars and reformers. It was Kang Yu Wei who first started the re form bee buzzing in the royal bonnet. The young Emperor finally lent a list ening ear to the teachings of Kang Yu Wei. He became a pupil of that great teacher. This naturally made the Em peror eager to meet the most brilliant scholars of Kang Yu Wei. Among the young men brought Into the royal pres ence were Leung Chi Tso and Leung Kal Tin. Leung Kal Tin was the young er brother, but equally clever for his years, and an ardent reformer. When jealousy made It imparatlv that the young Emperor have less fre quent counsels with Kang Yu Wei It was decided to confine their Intercourse to letters and to have these missives carried to and fro by some trusted friend of reform. Leung Kal Tin was one of those who bravely offered his services for this delicate and danger ous task. When the Emperor saw that his re formers had endangered his own safe ty and that of his advisers, and that matters were nearing a crisis, he sent a secret message to Kwang Yu Wei, In forming him of the peril that was threatening all reformers. He bade them fly at once. Six of the most promising advocates of reform were butchered at the insti gation of the Empress Dowager before they could make their escape, but Kang Yu Wei, Leung Kal Tin, Leung Chi Tso, and several others managed to es cape. Leung Kal Tin came to the Pacific coast to carry the doctrine of reform to every city and village where his brother Chinese congregate. In San Francisco there are an especially large number of progressive Chinese, who believe that the light of modern civili zation should penetrate the gloom of China. Their battle cry Is: "Give back the throne to the young Emperor Kwang Hsu." They would have the Empress Dowager divested of every vestige of power. Leung Kai Tin. though still In his twenties, is a man of marvelous ability. He is a scholar, not only learned in the musty philosophy of the Orient, but well versed In the history of other na tions and what has made their success. He is an eloquent speaker, and his lec tures to his countrymen In the United States have stirred them greatly. FLIES HAVE EYES TO BLIND. Four Thousand in a Bunch on Bach Side of the Head. Whoever thinks the male the supe rior animal finds no rest for the sole sf his foot in the contemplation of what we, in the sublimity of our self-con-selt, call "the lower animals." In our general ignorance of the housefly we :lo not know just how foolish and no account the male is, but we may rea sonably infer that he is as markedly Jeficient as usual, seeing that his eyes ire so close together that they touch sach other. That's always a bad sign, if you see anybody with eyes close to gether you are entitled to think little of his intelligence. The fly has two sorts of eyes, the big compound one, 4,000 in a bunch on each side of the head, for knocking about in daylight, and there are simple eyes on the top of the head for use in a poor light, sewing aud fine print. Be fore going into ecstasies of admiration over the creature that has 4,000 eyes on each side of its head it might be well to remember that they are not of much account. In case of old flies kept over winter the compound eyes cave In and get broken, yet the fly seems to get along and find food. One kind gentle man varnished over the simple eyes and plucked off the wings of some flies. He found that he might hold a candle close enough to burn the com pound eye.s of the fly before It had a suspicion that anything out of the com mon was going on. In daylight he took a knitting needle and brought It up In front of the fly close enough to touch his antennae before It dodged. If the knitting needle was brought up on one side Mr. Fly picked up his sticking plasters quite lively. Alnslee's Maga zine. Electroplating the Dead. Dr. Variot of Paris has discovered a process for embalming bodies which it Is thought will prove a great success. He not only embalms but metallizes the bodies by the Ruolt process, just as it is done with a fork or a spoon. In this manner they can be preserved in definitely, and In such perfection that the most Imperceptible wrinkles and lines are reproduced, and the embalmed body has the appearance of a metal statue. The process Is as follows: After a bath In pure carbolic acid, and being strongly rubbed with nitrate of silver, the body is submerged in a gal-vano-plastic (?) bath, after which a slight layer of nitrite is applied to It Lisbon O Dia.

A Distressing; Condition in Which Many American People Are Involved The Only Way to Alleviate It. From the Mountaineer, Walhalla, N. Dakota. The remorse of a guilty stomach is what a veiy large majority of the peo ple of this nation are suffering with to day. It is a well kuown fact that dys pepsia is a characteristic American dis ease and it is frequently stated that "we are a nation of dyspeptics." It is a distressing ailment and be cause of its many forms is difficult to treat. Sometimes it is the result of improper modes of eating, improper food or mental worry and exhaustion; then again it may be sort of a depressed condition of the body and treatment should be directed to the restoration of the nealth, without special attention to the stomach. In other instances, the disease is evidently the result of in flammation of the stomach. Anyone of these conditions produce a lack of vitality in the system, by causing the blood to loee its life sus taining elements. The blood is the vital element in our lives and should be carefully nurtured. Restore the blood to its proper condition, dyspepsia will vanish and perfect health follow. For example, in the county of Pem bina, North Dakota, a few miles from Walhalla, resides Mr. Ernest Snider; a man of sterling integrity, whose veracity cannot be doubted. He was formerly a resident of Landsdowne, Ont.. but removed to the West and is now a posperuus farmer. For three years he as been unable to do his work because he was ill with dyspepsia. "I became, Beriously ill about three years ago," he says, and consulted a doctor who gave me some medicine for indigestion. I continued to grow worse aud eeveral physicians were called at intervals who gave me I temporary relief, but the disease re i turned with all its accustomed severity. "The distress after eating made me j dread meal time. At times I became j so dizzy as tobe unable to stand. I had ; sour stomach, heartburn, palpitation of heait, and weak nerves. The doc tors disagreed as to the nature of my disease, but all agreed that the stomach was affected. I suffered intensely an j life was a misery. "I tried several well-known reme dies, but was not benefited. "I read in tne newspapers articles regarding the wonderful curative pow ers of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, and finally alter some urging on the part of a friend, I con cluded to try tbe pills. I purchased six boxes. This was five months ago. "I had not taken all of the first box before I felt much relief, I continued taking the pills, and after using four boxes I was cured. I have none of those distressing symptoms now and am completely restored to health, and can do as much work as any of the laborers on my farm. I owe my restor- atiu to health to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People and galdly give imy testimonial, hoping it may prove ' beneficial to some persons similarly i affected." I 0 By restoring to the blood the requis ite constituents of life, Dr. Williams' Pink PiJIs for Pale People renew the i nerve force and enables the stomach to ' promptly and properly assimilate the I -food, thus speedily and permanently ' curing the dyspeptic. These pills are i a specific for all diseases having their origin in impoverished blood or disor i dered nerves. They contain every ele ; ment requisite to general nutrition, to ; restore strength to the weak, good ; health to the ailing.
