Catarrh has become such a common disease that a person entirely free from this disgusting complaint is seldom met with. It is customary to speak of Catarrh as nothing more serious than a bad cold, a simple inflammation of the nose and throat. It is, in fact, a complicated and very dangerous disease ; if not at first, it Very soon becomes so. The blood is quickly contaminated by the foul secretions, and the poison through the general circulation is carried to all parts of the stem.

Almost any big typewriter agency has displayed, at one time or another, some battered contrivance which Is de clared to be "the first typewriter." It Is beyond doubt, however, that this decrepit machine. Invented by R. T. P. Allen, of Kentucky, 40 years ago, and now In the United States patent office. Is the real original. As long ago as 1714 the British pat ent office granted to Heury Mills, a Londoner, papers patent for "an arti ficial writing machine." Mills' machine however, was too bulky and altogether Impracticable. Other typewriting mechanisms followed, but until the Al len invention was accomplished the genuine typewriter did not come luto existence. Allen's machine really em bodied all the essential features of the modern machine. Superintendent Gill, of the patent office, vouches for the priority of the invention here pictured. mm 11 If we could persuade every man In any kind of business to advertise, says the editor of the Jacksonville, Flu., Metropolis, we would do it with the full assurance that we were doing the busi ness public the greatest kind of favor. The difference between a non-advertising town and an advertising town la the difference between one that Is alive and stirring and one that Is dead. The difference between the advertising merchant and the non-advertlslug mer chant Is the difference between a man who pulls off his coat and rolls up his sleeves nnd gets down to hard work and pushes his business, and the man who sits down and waits for business to come to hliu. It is the difference be tween perseverance and sloth; It Is the difference between energy and laziness; it Is the difference between the active dollar and the idle dollar; It is the differ ence between the man of to-day and the fossil who has notions that are forty or fifty years old. You look at the newspnper In any town and scan its advertisements; see who It Is that advertises; what Is ad vertised; how much, and you can very readily understand what kind of a vil lage you are going to. The business man who understands business shys the non-advertising town as he would the bubonic plague. The non-ndvertlser Is death to enterprise and death to pro gress. If you nre In business and nre In earn est about It you ought to just let the public know something about yourself by the use of printers' Ink. It not only gives the public Information about your business, but it helps you to do a great work In your own behalf. How to Get Rich. Everybody wants to be rich. Here la a plan which will make you wealthy If you faithfully carry It out. Money makes money. No one Is so poor that he cannot rake up a penny to start on. Now, upon the first day of the month deposit a cent In a bank, and on each of the succeeding thirty days of the month double your deposit. Follow this program faithfully, and at the end of the month you will be surprised to find that your account will show the sum of ten million, seven hundred and thirty-seven thousand, four hundred and eighteen dollars and twenty-three cents to your credit. With that' amount all you have to do Is to retire" and let. the other fellows hustle. If you don't be lieve this statement, do a little sum In arithmetic and be convluceed. In the face of such a plain and simple finan cial problem, who Is there that cannot grow rich in a mouth and forever af terward snap his fingers at poverty and labor? Where Laces Are Made. Some of the finest laces In the world come from Belgium. There are no less than a thousand lace schools In that country. Each of the towns has Its own particular "points," the patterns of which have been handed down from mother to daughter for generations.

Market Mas Been Advancing and Prices Arc Firm Some idea of the magnitude of the sales of twine may be gained from the fact that during the first nine months of the current ttscal year, the value of fiber imports into the United States was nearly $23,000,000.00. Every man in the Northwest who has to do with the harvesting of crops is interested in this matter. Many have pursued the old time policy of "waiting" for a break in the prices be fore they buy their twine, but, for many reasons, this year prospects are that prices will remain practically un changed, and certainly not lowered, as as the fiber for this harvest's twine has been already purchased. Some of the largest Iioushb have sold all the twine they will be able to produce for the coming harvest, and are therefore out of the market. In a few instances it is known in the trade that travel ing ealesmen and manufacturers have cut wholesale prices in order to induce dealers to enlarge their orders for im plements, etc. But this has not been so largely done as in former years, and probably will not affect general prices at all. Prices have rarely been so firm a? at present ; that is to say, there has seldom been so little shading of the established prices. In past seasons at this period, manufacturers and jobbers complained frequently of cutting by competitors. Just now no complaints of this kind are heard. To sum up the situation there is not in the fiber prices any warrant for re ducing the quotations on twine, and it probably is the best advice that can be given to dealers generally to suggest that they do not hesitate in buying all the twine they need at the present market price. We note that the sales of Standard Twine are not nearly so heavy this year as they formerly were. This is only a repetition of all past experience, that when an an article is gotten up to de ceive or in imitation of a better one, it is only a question of time when it is found out and is forced down to its in trinsic value.

IN A RACK OF FIRE. Boy Imprisoned in Bis; Chandelier of JJrury Lane Theater. To cling to the network of rods on a huge chandelier, roasting In the up rushing heat of hundreds of gas burn ers, with a drop of nluety fe-t be neaththis Is an experience the mem ory of which still makes Mr. Frank Parker shudder. The circumstances are told In the Strand Magazine. Before the day of electric lights Drury Lane Theater was illuminated by a great gaselier, eighteen feet across the base. It bung on stout chains twelve feet long, and was fed by pipes coming down through a man hole in the celling. Close to this man hole was a circular crown of burners; a larger circle ran round the bottom of the chandelier; and In addition, "bas kets" of lights were grouped at Inter vals about the lower rim. The boy who lighted this glittering mass of jets and flashing prisms was Frank Parker, a youth of 17. As no automatic spark had then been de vised, the method of lighting was a primitive one. Parker used to go Into the garret above the celling and reach down through the manhole with a long pole, at the end of which was a spirit torch. In doing this he had to be very careful not to break any of the glass pendants, which, If loosened, might un der the great beat drop off during a performance and kill some one In the pit One night, as Parker reached down to light the lower range of lights and the basket clusters, be knocked the pole against a string of glass prisms, which came loose at one end and swung down, supported only by a small copper wire. Then be remembered the words of the manager: "If any of the crystals come loose, break them off at all costs. They are dangerous." So Parker, without hesitation, climb ed down through the manhole upon the luterlaced rods and brares of the chan delier, which swayed slowly above the black pit. As he let himself down through the hoop of lights which formed the top of the chandelier, bis lamp caught the circle of open jets, and the flame ran round In a succession of sputters, oue light catching from another, as a row of dominoes falls. There be was. Im prisoned between fire above and dark ness below. At first he did not notice his peril, for he was Intent on breaking off the dan gerous cluster of prisms. With great difficulty he reached It and knocked It Into the pit. The pause before it struck told bim how deep the chasm lay be neath him. Then he looked up and realized his position, for there was the circle of blazing jets above him barring the way to the manhole. The beat and poisonous fumes of hundreds of lights rushed over him up through the ventilator. He called for help. The minutes slipped by. The rods he clung to grew hot. Then, wbeu he had almost given up hope, the head llghtman beard bis cries and rushed up, over the grille, through the dark garret to the manhole. Turning off the lights, he lay down, as one does to pull a drowning man from a hole, reached through the opening, and, seizing Par ker's arms, drew him up to safety. NATIONAL CUSTOMS. Sir Charles Napier W as Perfectly 'Willing; to Observe Them. , When Sir Charles Napier was exer cising military rule In India, he show ed extraordinary skill as an adminis trator. He availed himself as much as possible of the framework of govern ment previously existing, and used a wonderful tact In answering the Hin du mind according to Its own form of thought "Make no avoidable change in the ancient laws add customs," he said to bis ubord!nates. "The conquest of a country is sufficient convulsion for the people, without abrupt changes In their habits and social life." One custom, however, he did abolish, and his method of doing It showed his wisdom In administratorship. This was the practice of sutteelsm the burning of widows oj the funeral piles of their husbands; and he not only put his foot firmly down on It, but met counter ar guments In the ouly manner possible. The custom bad been formally abol ished by Lord William Bentwlck, in l&HO; but evidently it was still prac ticed a dozen years later when Sir Charles was in India. When he proclaimed bis Intention of suppressing sutteelsm, the priests came to him to protest, on the ground that all nations had customs to be re spected, and that sutteelsm was one of them. Napier affected to be Impressed by the argument. "Be It no," said he. "The burning of widows Is your custom. Prepare the pile. But my nation has also a cub Uoni. When men burn women alive, ' we hang them and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall there fore erect gibbets, on which every one concerned in a widow's burning shall be hanged. Let us all act according to national custom." Pertinent, Lady Lecturer My dear children, 1 love all animals. I never under any circumstances hurt one. I even have a family of pet toads.
