Ylioojiiic Cough. I had a littlo boy who was nearly dead from an attack of whooping cough. My neighbors recommended Chamber lain's Cough Remedy. I did not think that any medicine would help him, but after giving him a few doses of that remedy I noticed an improvement, and one bottle cured hlra entirely. It is the best cough medicine I ever had in the house J. L. Moore, South Bur gettstoAn, Pa. For sale by Fisk Bangs, druggist.

Many old soldiers now feel the effects of the hard service they endured dur ing the war. Mr. Geo. S. Anderson, of Hossville, York county, Penn., who saw the hardest kind of service at the front, Is now frequently troubled with rheumatism. "I had a severe attack lately," he says, " and procured a bot tle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm. It did so much good that I would like to know what you would charge mo for one dozen bottles." Mr. Anderson wanted it both for his own use and to supply it to his friends and neighbors, as every family should have a bottle of it in their home, not only for rheuma tism, but lame back, sprains, swellings, cuts, bruises and burns, for which it is unequalled.

Mr. H. D. McMillan, who baa recent ly moved to Charlotte from South Caro liua, gives an intercutting account of matrimonial coincidence that ocourred in bis family h.. year. About tho 1st of last July Mr. Mo Millan received a letter from his brother in Lako End, La., saying: "I will be married on tho 8th of this month. Meet us at Nashville and join ns for a trip to Colorado City." At the time he received this letter Mr. McMillan was making arrange ments for his owu wedding, which was dated for July 8, and at this time he says he was living in the sand hills of South Carolina, tho soil there having become proverbial for its poverty. On about tho 10th of July he received a letter from another brother, J. D. Mo Millan of Cataliuo island, off the west coast of California, saying, "I was mar ried on the hth of this mouth to Miss . " Iu contrast with the sand hills of South Carolina Cataline island one of the most fertile distriots in the world. All three brothers married on the 8th of July, and it was impossible for them to have had any preconcerted plana about, tbo date, as they had not heard from each other in months. Charlotte (N. C.) Democrat. i A I)U1 For a Itoyal VUlt. Recently a large estate came into the markot in consequence of tho death of its owner. It contained some of the fin est shooting to bo had in the country, and the I'riuco of Wales had often wanted to visit it, but the owner oould not afford to entertain him, and so did not invite him. A gentleman who him self owns one of the most splendid and complete mansions to be found in Eng land heard of this desire of the prinoe. He went down to tho estate one Wednes day, had a chat with tho son of the owner and sent a wire to his wife to comedown on the Saturday. They staid there over Sunday and talked the thing over. Then the husband called upon the trustees. "I've seen the estate and would like to buy it. If you care to take f 250,000 for it, I will give it to you. Here is the address of my solicitors." The trustees, after considering, closed with the offer, and the estate changed hands very quietly, without the inter vention of any agent. It may bo said to bo worth tho money paid and brings in about 3 percent. This is an extreme in stance of the lengths somo men will go to obtain tho honor of a royal visit- London Leader. Lizard Which Walk Krert. When drawing attention about a year ago to the bipedal movements of cer tain Australian lizards, notably the comical little ( hlaniydosaurus, or "frill til lizard,'' whoso photograph is now familiar, Mr. Suvillu-Ketit referred to an uncdiifinnt d rumor that the Mexican iguanoid lizard also possesses the power of running on its hind legs, being led to this by tbo coriospondeuce in general structure of the creatures, especially the abnormal length of the hind limbs. He publishes a letter from a gentleman liv ing in tho West Indies which shows that there also all tho lizards, from the largo trio iguana, 5 feet long, down to the tiuii'st mites which scamper about among tho stones, are accustomed to run erect nu their hind leys when hurried. Tho correspondent adds the interesting information that on tho rocks about the watershed of tho Guiana aro old draw ings of lizards running erect. Mr. Sa- ville-Kent points out that this peculiar ity, which a year ngo was doubted by many naturalists, but which has now been shown to be common to so many different species of lizards, deserves at tuition ns pointing to bipedal locomo tion in some remote ancestor. Nature, Trat-upn, but No Tea. The fad of taking afternoon tea at tho Waldorf-Astoria has caught on tre mendously among New York women. There aro about C00 of them there every afternoon now, and on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons the crowd is swell ed to more than 2,000. Tho popularity of tea, however, may not bo no great as this would set in to indicate. Whisper it not in Oath, but the dainty eggshell cup Eometimes contains tho insidious cocktail. They aro nut called for under that vulgar name, but the "Astoria punch" that many women as well as men sip Is made after tho formula used by the ordinary barkeeper when ho is compounding a cocktail. This deception, by the way, is not tho now trick New Yorkers seem to think. Six or eight years ago, when tho now defunct Maison Doree was the most eminently respectable restaurant in San Francisco, many a woman, pre sumably tired after a round of the shops, would order a bracer in the form of a cocktail there, and it would come to her served in a teacup.

Fraternal societies today constitute a mighty inlluenco in preventing pau perisra. They have solved tho ditiicult problem of giving aid without charity. They have provided a way by which the man in want can receive help without losing his self respect and sinking into the humble place of a oauoer. The state owes a debt of gratitude for their work in this respect, and every com munity where one exists is under obli gation to it for tbo distress it has re lieved through its operations, and which but for it would have added to the public burdens.
