It is very doubtful, howevcr, if, iu the

No doubt there are thosc who sull'erfrom

but such are unt fouud among thc tca

to be borne iu iiiiiul that the pcople of

tea all the hann there is iu It, sinec, in

The Chluese, who are the ideal tea-drink-crs,
pour boiling water on the leaves at

practice of the poorcr class to kccp a

It Is probable that much of tho dyspep

of tea-drunkards is subject is due to this
continual use of an astringcnt dceoction.

often prescnts special points, "hypnogenic

On tho plains, in Assiniboin, I found a

bcgun to grow restless, and were mani
festing tho fact by unusual insolence.
Only tho day beforo a dozen of tho bravea

whi.sky, a commodity they were not al
lowed to touch and no one was penmtted

and they sat, as Indians will, for n long
time, as if to show her they would not
go away until they got it. Ctiriously
t nough, no ono catno to tho storo from
tlio settlcineiit. By and by tlio Indians
proposed to bcarch for tho whisky. Sho
laughed at them and told them they
could bearch. They did to, pecping and
poking evcrywhcre that thoy could think
of AVhen they olfered to go up stairs
to ner living apartmcnts, she stood in tlio
doorway and told them they must not
vcnturo there. She flattened her back
against the door and defied them.
Sho was less than tho ordinary height,
and did not weigh over 100 pounds, but
sho quailed them with the cye of a bravo

samo wouian had seen a wolf in hcr

"shooed'' it away with her apron and
Bcoldiug, just as one of our girls rnight
do to a cat. I never saw a man that I

with black silk braid about tho edges.

bludgeon in closo quarters. Also, like tho
French soldier, the Swiss is armed with a
magazino nccdle gun, and is givcn so
much active training tliat ho is invariably
a fair marksman. In this, as nearly all
continental armics, thero is by govern
ment authority an inducement for boI
dicrs to bccomo fino niarksmcn. But
tho pay of tho continental soldier is so
low and generally his Bervice so nearly
meninl that ho takes littlo interestin what
ho does. The pay is about one-fourth
that oi tho American soldier and less than
half of that paid tho English Cor. Phila-

BECAUSE it is so unusually handsomc and attractive in appcar
ance, many pcrsons think the Ivory Soap is intendcd for toilct
usc only. While it may be uscd for the toilct with plcasant and
sattsfactory results, it is a laundry soap in all that thc namc implics.
Prof. Silliman, of Yale College, says: "As a laundry soap the
Ivory has no superior."
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the ' Ivory';"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
