\ THAT TERRIBLE SCOURGE.
Malarial disease is invariably supplemented by disturbance of the liver, the bowels, the stomach and the nerves. To the removal of both the cause and its effects Hostetter’s Stomach Bitters is fully adequate. It “tills the bill as no other remedy does, performing its work thoroughly. Its ingredients are pure and wholesome, and it admirably serves to build up a system broken by ill health and shorn of strength. Constipation, liver and kidney com plaint and nervousness are conquered by it. Love.

During the American Revolution an English magazine published an estimate of the North American colonies. Plac ing the population then at 2,000,000 and assuming that it would double it self every 25 years, the writer estimated that in the year 1890 the number would have increased to 64,000,000. This may be taken as a most remarkable prophecy, inasmuch as the census of 1890 fixes the total population at 62,622,250. Angelic Temperament. - "He is good natured, is he?” “Good natured!

There Wu Great Excitement Over Hla Trip to the United States. Jean Fraley Hallowell, who writes in The Ladies’ Home Journal of " When Lafayette Rode Into Philadelphia,” says that "it is difficult to understand at this late day what a furore of ex citement passed over this country when Lafayette arrived once more in Amer ica The visit is a historic event to be remembered while memory endurea During President Monroe’s second ad ministration the United States extended its invitation to Lafayetta He arrived at Staten Island on Aug. 15 (Sunday), 1824, accompanied by his son, George Washington Lafayette, and also by his son-in-law. A formal reception took place on the following day, the first fruits of the most abundant harvest of welcome which Lafayette was to receive during his year of travel through the United States. "Lafayette was 67 years old when he visited America as the nation’s guest and carried his years lightly. His head was shaped like that of Burns. Ho bad a high forehead, long, aquiline nose and a rather thin face. His hair was sandy and quite plentiful. His eyes were dark gray, restless and twinkling, his eyebrows light in color, but heavily marked. His mouth was firm, and his lips smiled courteously at the holiday crowd assembled to do him honor. The general was not very tall, but well mada His face was distinctly pleasant, and its expression was an odd mixture of shrewdness, decision and gay good humor. His costume was a swallow tailed coat and trousers of dark brown, with a great display of white waistcoat and neckcloth. A bunch of seals hung from a broad bjack ribbon at his waist. Over his shoulders hung a cloth riding cloak, greenish blue in color and lined with red. ” Am Kscaloped S'isli. An escaloped fish which Miss Parloa gives as an especial dainty at her cook ing classes is made (the proportions are easily doubled for a larger quantity) from a pint of cooked fish, free from bones and skin, a teaspoonfal of salt, one-quarter teaspoonful of pepper, a ta blespoonful of butter, one-half teaspoon - fnl of flour, 1 % gills of milk (this is a little less than a cupful) and 4 table spoonfuls of grated bread crumba Sea son the fish with half the salt and pep per. Put a generous half of the butter in a small saucepan on the fire. When it is hot, add the flour and stir till the mix ture is smooth and frothy. Boil up once and stir in the rest of the seasoning. Put a layer of the sauce in a small bak ing dish, alternating with the fish, hav ing sauce on top. Sprinkle over with the bread crumbs and dot with the rest of the butter. Bake in a moderately hot oven 20 minutes. The caution was added that any dish made with sauce and crumbs needs that the heat should be moderate at the bottom and strong at the top. The difference between dried bread crumbs and stale bread grated was also accentuated. In this dish the latter is obligatory. —New York Post It seems strange that when a man Is taken In he usually feels put out about it.—Philadelphia Record. The rescuer—How did you come to fall In?

The first electric passenger car ever made In the United States was dis played to the public for the first time at Dover, N. H., July 20, 1847. The fiftieth anniversary of the event, which occurred recently, has bee nflttlngly observed at Eliot, Me., where lived the inventor of the car, Moses G. Farmer. His daughter still lives there, conduct ing a summer school of science and lit erature, and It was at her home that the event was celebrated by a company of electricians. Moses Farmer was a native of New Hampshire and was born in 1820. He MOSES G. FABMEB. received a college education and taught school. Os a mechanical bent of mind, he spent many of his spare moments In experimenting. He early became In terested In electricity and the subject of applying this force to propel vehi cles occupied hls attention. His ex periments resulted In the construction of a train of two cars, on one of which was monuted the motor and battery which furnished the current, the other being a passenger car. The rails of the track as built In 1847 were of cast Iron, and the ties, or sleep ers, of wood. On these rails ran the two cars, one for carrying passenger, the other being the locomotive. The electric current was generated In forty eight cells of a Groves battery, the THE FIRST ELECTRIC CAR. size of each cell being about one pint In capacity. The cars were exhibited In various cities and attracted some attention, but the time was not ripe for electric transit and Farmer’s scheme was not utilized. It formed the basis, how ever, upon which engineers subsequent ly built the electric cars of the present day. Farmer died in Chicago during the World’s Fair in 1893. WOMAN’S LONG RIDE. Mrs, Margaret Le Long Wheeled from Chicago to Ban Francisco. Mrs. Margaret Valentine Le Long is a plucky little woman with a long name who recently rode, alone, from Chicago to San Francisco, her home, on a bicy cle. She was on the road nipety days, covering the distance, 2,000 miles, with out a puncture. She made the Journey not <to save expenses, for it cost twice as much as by rail, but for the sake of the adventure and the experience. She had only one accident, a broken pedal, when she had piled herself up at the foot of a hill in the dark. She did her own washing, had the good sense not to try for a record, and rested when she was tired. Eighty-six miles in one day was her best performance. On the way she lost eight pounds, made a detour from Ogden to Salt Lake, rode the railroad track for numberless MBS. MARGARET LE LONG. i— rough and bumpety miles, and walked on an aveVage ten miles a day. She is muscular as few women are, and is as brown as the proverbial berry, for she even tanned her hands through her thick chamois gloves.
