J12 WINE OF CARDUI A Short Trip to Europe -Pompeii BY K. H. MCCLINTIC. Closely associated with Vesuvius are Herculaneum and Pompeii, two cities ly inc: around its base, buried by ashes from its crater nearly 2000 years ago and lost to sight for cen? turies. These two cities are close together around tbe bay of Naples. The car line takes you to Pompeii, passing on the right Herculaneum and on the left Vesuvius. Pompeii, being more excavated is more interesting than* Herculane? um, and it only will he refeired to here. In 63 A.D. it wm* a rich residen? tial eily of 80,000 inhabitsnts.wlien it was much damaged and wrecked by an earthquake, thc effects of which are still plainly visible in lUhiiy of the walls of j he building* and in the pavements of the street?. 14 years later, when much of the havoc wrought by the earthquake had been repaired, as the work on the streets and building show, it met its doom in the shower of ash? es that were thrown out by the eruption on the 24th of August, 70, which covered it up to a depth of from 30 to 40 feet. The idea that ninny entertain that these cit? ies were overwhelmed by streams of m .Hen lava is not correct. It was simply a kind of ashes, not such ashes as come from wood, but a kind of dirt, cinder; mineral mix? ture, but light and floating. The people who lost their lives did so from suffocation mainly. Most of the people escaped from the city. The excavations have re? vealed the fact that possibly as many as 2,000 perished. Why some of these did not get away, as the showers of ashes continued for weeks, wc do not know. The unmistakable evidence as tu many who perished is that they were the old, the feeble, the crip? pled and blind. Now you will of c6urse bu inter? ested to know what the evidence could be to lead one to say that many of the old and feeble were left behind. When the bodies were covered up by these ashes, they soon pack ed around the body and in process of time, the body mouldered away to dust again, leaving a cavity in the packed ashes just the shape ol the body and in many cases tbesj remain to the present day. lu some of them still are found some of the bones of the unfortu? nate. When one of these cavities U found by the eycavators,it is, with pj.it. breaking it further, immediate? ly filled with wet plaster of paris which soon hardens, and when rt is taken out, it is of course an ??xaci ca?t of the body that formerl} rn vde the cavity, So from tin ' c st it is easy to tell what former? ly occupied the cavity. The cast? show that they are the models oi people without legs, the cripples | the aged and the infirm. Manv of them died having bott their hands over their nose an< I mouth, dying from suffocation, try ' ing to exclude the floating ashe which tilled the air, while not i few tried to accomplish the sam* by tying some kind of cloth around their mouth and nose. We find all kinds of domestic an imals suffered in this calamity. Pos sibly thc most noted excavation o animals is one of a dog, copies am paintings of which are often seen It shows a dog in awful anguish his body almost doubled, his hear twisted around on his side, and hit mouth widely distended, in hi: deathly struggle. You will understand that thesi excavations, which have been go ing on for over 50 years, and ar still gomg on, are accomplished b< taking awav all of the ashes am dirt from the top down to the leve of the en th as it was before tin calamity. < This of course leaves the wa'lso: the houses all standing excep when from one cause and another they have broken or fallen away some being in a much better stat nf preservation than others. All of this we'ght upon the roof of the houses l roke them in o 1 course. Many of them have beei Vt'lae?d by the original roof* which were all made of tiling while many of them have beei e. v?Tfd with im>d<*rii material ii the Kunian ?tv|??, however, beeans the rooms of th' house contains something that needed to protectei from the eleme.it*. The houses were nearly all buil in a square with un open court ii the center. They were not ver well lighted, glass at that time no being much in use. They have but few if any openings on the streets. The streets are uarrow generally and though paved with immense stones, they show plainly the marks of the chariot wheels, which was their only thing on wheels. The narrowness of the streets com? pelled them to travel always in the same track. Very good ideas of the Roman means of cooking can'be obtained, as was well as of the machines on which the slaves ground the grain or pressed the wine. The immense jars of oyer 100 gallons, made from ciuy in which the wine was kept convince you that they knew some thing of the art of pottery and one very large j tr, larger than a hogs? head, which had been broken in two around tho center and. winch had been~ put tcgetlur by using melted lead, and which was still holding secure after 1800 >?ttrs, regardless of time, earthquake shocks and volcanoes, further con? vince you that j.hey did a few things, that the 20th century wis dom has not been able to duplicate. Their houses'are all equipped willi baths, both hot ana cold, though they did not have them in the same room, Their plumbing was ali done with lead pipe which is almost indestructahle and is in good Shape of preservation today, Many of the inside walls of the houses ure covered with pictures done both in painting and mosaic. The owners of the different houses can be -generally ascertained by the names found on them. The house of Pansa is the largest being 310 feet long by 124 feet broad. On ita threshold in Mosaic we read the greeting '-Salve." Tbe city was full of temples to many nnq strauge gods as well as theaters and places of amusement. The city was surrounded hy a wall in which were eight gates. The work of excavation within the wall is now about completed and most of it is now going oh outside. Not much valuable treasure or wealth is found for the reason that the people are supposed to have carried that away in their flight when the shower of ashes began. The ex? cavation is all under the control of the government, You may visit the ruins either with or with a guide as you wish. Walking through the abandoned and desolate streets of this ruined city, with its broken column, its delapidated arches, its fallen walls, its tottering temples, one is im? pressed with how fragile are man's best efforts against the energv and powers of nature when in action. (To be continued) Cured Hay Fkver And Summer Cold. A J Nusbaum, Uatesville, Ind.. writes: "Last }ear I suffered for three months with a summer cold so distressing that it interfered ( with my business. I had many of the symptons of hay fever, and a doctor's prescription did not reach my case, and I took several medi? cines which seemed to only aggra? vate my case. Fortunately I in? sisted upon having Foley's Honey and Tar in the yellow package, and it quickly eured me. My wife has since used Foley's Honey and Tar with the same success." K H Trimble.

Ed? ward Johnston, on the move fi om Camp Alleghany to Camp Shenan? doah, in early April 1802, halted two days at McDowell, Va. The tents were pitched in the fields be? tween the village and Sitlington's around the brick church and along the banks of the Bul I pasture. I spent, the most of one forenoon mingling freely among the soldiers and noticed how they were passing the time in camp, which was April 11th. The morning was surprisingly bright and pleasant after quite a period of cloud and rain, and all seemed infused with refreshed bod? ily vigor and buoyancy of spirits; hence a more animated scene would be hard to imagine than what pre sented itself throughout the Mc? Dowell Camp, and I occupied s?v eral hours in taking in as much as possible. My attention was first drawn to quite a crowd gathering around a group of ladies on horseback com? ing in from the lower Bull Pasture bringing new clothes?"nice things," such a* pies, swed cakes and fresh maple sugar for their friends, sons and brothers. Along with the.-e visitors was a half grown boy riding a hard mouthed mule that had never Jeen the mili? tary before and was fast becoming unmanageable, sn much so that he whirled around and threw up his heels, whereupon the rider fell off. heels over head, to the great amuse? ment of the bystanders. Pretty soon a pert young volun? teer proposed to ride "the thing," and break him in for.the boy. This was agreed to by all present, but no sooner had he mounted than the donkey tucked his eais between his forelegs and pitched the soldier ov er his head into n thom bush. This exploit wa? followed by yells of boisterous merriment. Such was the eagerness of the soldiers in this part of the encampment to- con? verse with their lady friends and to see the fun that the guards had considerable trouble to keep all within the lines. One of them playfully called out at the top of his voice, "All women and mules must come inside the lines or leave." Whereupon one of the women, with a visage as grim as Minerva herself, fiercely rejoined, "I sup? pose then, sir, you put women and mules on an equality, do you." The applause was uproarious, which, along with her fierce looks and sharp tongue caused the whis? kered, gallant guard to look rather crest- fallen. It turned out that he was u gen? tlemen, and politely explained to her the difficulty of keeping his men in the lines as he was ordered to do. Whereupon the matron grimly smiled and took her place with the others inside the lines. , The purpose of her visit to camp was to give her boys the nice pres? ents she had prepared them with a mother's assiduous care, pathetical? ly saying that these might be the last she could ever give to them. In Hie meanwhile a sun-bright tear coursed its way down her sun browned, careworu face. In another part of the encamp? ment were large groups of the young soldiers recently mustered in amusing themselves with games of ball like so many schoolboys, Some were playing ''paddle ball," others "shoot buck," and when a good hit or strike was made peals of joyous laugher gladdened the ear. In some of the tents ten-month veterans were busy with their cards, too much absorbed to notice who might be around, so deeply in? terested where a few shin plasters were at stake. In another spacious, handsome tent vocal music was heard as sev? eral manly voices blended in the singing of a hymn, parts of which I hope to remember with special interest long as memory may be spared me. One or more of the singers I had heard at Grafton ami Philippi ten months previously as 1 believed at the moment: Nearly all cough cures, especial? ly those that contain opiates, an constipating.

"There is a place where I hope to to live When life and it's sorrows are o'er, -A place which the Lord to me will give; And then I shall sorrow no more! That blissful place in my Father's land, And all its delights I explore! Come! favor my flight, angelic band, And waft me in peace lo the shore." As I slowly went about I passed many around the camp fires pre? paring dinner, cooking meat, bak? ing bread, brewing coffee and boil? ing peas or beans. Elsewhere new recruits were at drill, most of them in homespun, and having mountain rifles. The drill master read4 the manual to them from a book, much to the diversion of the veterans of ten months' service, who were present to criticise the performance of the 'newly mustered in." The most veteran however of the veterans was a frisky lieutenant w hose arm was still sore from a wound in the Alleghany fight in December previously. His sensi? bilities were much shocked at hear? ing the manual exercise read to the soldiers instead of being repeated from memory, and it was not long until he turned away, and I have not forgotten his scornful look as he left, squirting tobacco juice from his largely replenished quid. Next to fix my attention was to notice several of the soldier boys in ragged uniforms promenading, arm tn arm, trying to find out, as they said, who might he the prettiest's girls on the grounds. It was evident that they were much pleased with themselves, and the girls, too. And may I say, the girls were pleased by their atten? tions, could their observations be relied on, which were confidentially made to each other from time to time, when they thought no one was listening. A little farther on I came to quite a crowd gathered about a vol? unteer wearing a coat perforated with bullet holes. He had been desperately wounded in action, and had just rejoined his company, anx? ious for another brush, as "I am now bullet proof. Two bullets are never known to hit in the same place." After leaving the "bullet proof" soldier with my congratulations, I passed near a party listening to a fiddler. Two of the number were so enthused by the music?"Such a gitten up stairs," that they cleared a ring and danced, much to the en? tertainment of tlreir comrades. Some one however put in a word about "Uncle A^be" having a way of making them dance better than what they were doing before long if they didn't mind. Thus, in meeting and parting with friends from home, playing ball, shuffling cards, making sport of new recruits and their reading drill master, jesting with the girls swearing oaths, telling big taler about battles,singing hymns, danc? ing reels, cooking rations, mending and washing clothes, drying blank? ets, and doing nothing, the time wore away. I now began to think of leaving ?go to my room, where I mighi reflect on what all this meant, thal I had seen this world in miniature as it were, aud so to number thii day as to apply my mind to tin wisdom to be learned therefrom Before passing the guards howevei noticed a young man reclining ol a blanket, just outside a tent, evi dently in abstracted mood, a far-a way expression on his features, am was taking little if any interest ii what was passing around him. Up on recognizing him a flood of in teresting associations at once well ed up in my memory. Two year before, iu the month of April, hi had me come from the Warn Springs, Va., to his home in uppe Pocahontas, to officiate at his mar riage. It seemed to be an instance o the first and only love between th parties mutually; the groom jus twenty-one and the bride eighteen Hundreds of times had this marri age recurred to my iniaginathi since that happy evening in Apri 1860,"as they appeared to me t plight their sincere vows makin them husband and wife. He type of manly and noble charade] and she the loveliest of brides i her snow white veil and oliv wicani, nutiuuuucu iff vik.ii ..wv.. dants, each holding a lighted can? dle. While congratulations were be? ing received 1 looked admiringly on the evergreens with which the room was festooned and it was my fervent wish that the arbor vitae, the cedar and and the pine moss might be the emblems of their be? ing long and happily united. But if I mistake not upon closer inspection I saw sprigs of cypress interwoven. How the cypress came to be there is not for me to divine. I had thought it was mere? ly incidental, but when I saw bim a soldier in the ranks I began to feel that possibly the cypress had its appropriate place, too. In our interview I learned that the old home where he had wooed and wedded was in ashes, and but a few days since he had bidden farewell to his wife and little fam? ily and was on the march, feeling that be might never see his loved ones again. My emotions were very deeply touched, and I took leave of him with a feeling that I had seen iu those few hours more than enough to realize the terrible realities of one of the most uncalled for frat? ricidal wars, such as a christian people ever permitted themselves to allow to come to pass. And, oh! may they see to it that the like shall never happen again. But so long as so many seem to feel that dollars are more important than men, the like or worse may blaze out at a day and hour least expect? ed?W .T.P. in Pocahontas Times. A Humane Appeal.

K H Trimble, Women as Well as Men Are Made Miserable by Kidney Trouble. Kidney trouble preys upon the mind, dis? courages and lessens ambition; beauty, vigor and cheerfulness soon disappear when the kid? neys are out of order or diseased. Kidney trouble has become so prevalent that it is not uncommon for a child to be born afflicted with weak kid? neys. If the child urin? ates too often, if the urine scalds th's flesh or if, when the child reaches an age when it should be able to control the passage, it is yet afflicted with bed-wetting, depend upon it. the cause of the difficulty is kidney trouble, and the first step should bs towards the treatment of these important organs. This unpleasant trouble is due to a diseased condition of the kidneys and bladder and not to a habit as most people suppose. Women as well as men are made mis? erable with kidney and bladder treble, and both need the same great remedy. The mild and the immediate effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized.
